It is impossible to calculate the wealth of the Roman Catholic Church.

In truth, the church itself likely could not answer that question, even if it wished to.

Its investments and spending are kept secret.

Its real estate and art have not been properly evaluated, since the church would never sell them.

There is no doubt, however, that between the church’s priceless art, land, gold and investments across the globe, it is one of the wealthiest institutions on Earth.

Since 313 A.D., when Catholicism became the official religion of the Roman Empire, its power has been in near-constant growth.

Question....again....if as Catholics erroneously believe, when Christ declared "I will build my church",he meant the Catholic Church....why did it take Him so long to do so!!!!??????

The Roman Catholic Church contends that its origin is the death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ in approximately A.D. 30. The Catholic Church proclaims itself to be the church that Jesus Christ died for, the church that was established and built by the apostles. Is that the true origin of the Catholic Church?

On the contrary. Even a cursory reading of the New Testament will reveal that the Catholic Church does not have its origin in the teachings of Jesus or His apostles. In the New Testament, there is no mention of the papacy, worship/adoration of Mary (or the immaculate conception of Mary, the perpetual virginity of Mary, the assumption of Mary, or Mary as co-redemptrix and mediatrix), petitioning saints in heaven for their prayers, apostolic succession, the ordinances of the church functioning as sacraments, infant baptism, confession of sin to a priest, purgatory, indulgences, or the equal authority of church tradition and Scripture. So, if the origin of the Catholic Church is not in the teachings of Jesus and His apostles, as recorded in the New Testament, what is the true origin of the Catholic Church?

For the first 280 years of Christian history, Christianity was banned by the Roman Empire, and Christians were terribly persecuted.

This changed after the “conversion” of the Roman Emperor Constantine. Constantine “legalized” Christianity with the Edict of Milan in A.D. 313. Later, in A.D. 325, Constantine called the Council of Nicea in an attempt to unify Christianity. Constantine envisioned Christianity as a religion that could unite the Roman Empire, which at that time was beginning to fragment and divide. While this may have seemed to be a positive development for the Christian church, the results were anything but positive. Just as Constantine refused to fully embrace the Christian faith, but continued many of his pagan beliefs and practices, so the Christian church that Constantine promoted was a mixture of true Christianity and Roman paganism.

Again.....why did it take Christ over 300 years to build His church...which Catholic erroneously claim is the Catholic Church!!!!????

600 out of every 1,000 births are to unmarried mothers. We as a society should see the problem with this. Those children will not flourish as well as if they were raised in a mother/father household.
Its draining us economically too.
Same sex marriage is another variable to the problem. Even if you take religion out of the equation, children of same sex couples (statistically they 'divorce' higher than heterosexuals) will be a burden to society one day. There is no logical reason for Government to recognize these unions.
So, anything outside of the traditional covenant of marriage and family, is unproductive to We The People.
There was a good article in the Saint Paul Pioneer Press this morning about the breakdown of Marriage.
I can't provide the link. But you can go to twincities.com and look for Joe Soucherays column. "Single Moms are making us broke"
You can't blame gays for the breakdown of marriage.

Adopted children of same sex couples are much better off than being in a state home.

And where do all these unwanted children come from in the first place?

You make a good case for cheaper and easier contraception.

So do overpopulated, poverty-stricken cities in your Catholic countries to the south.

Look in the mirror. This is what you get with an imaginary god.

The Bible came from the Catholic Church. Lie #3 No, the Bible came from God.
The NT was written by the Catholic Church for the Catholic Church. Lie #4.....Which of the New Testament writers claimed to be Roman Catholic?
Other than 4 lies what else do you have to offer?

Actually OldG, those things you called lies are quite accurate. It can be proven. All of Protestantland agreed to where the NT came from until the born again evangelical fanatics showed up fairly recently.
You gotta admit (privately anyway) that the only way you guys can have your religion, is to be ignorant.
Actually, Cly, you are a bigger liar than your sister. If you can prove your statements prove it without the aid of a Roman Catholic website or a Roman Catholic historian.

Like Jerry McGuire.......show us the facts not the bologna.

So let me get this straight. It is the psychologists fault the pedophile priests continued to sexually abuse children as young as 3 years old. Is that your contention? The psychologists told the Roman Catholic Church they could treat their perverted priests better than the Roman Catholic Church could treat their perverted priests and Rome said Okey Dokey? Really?
For at least the 1000th. time, the Roman Catholic Church of today is not the catholic church (Universal). Do you understand?

The difference is the percent, with gays overwhelmingly into drugs,
If you were homosexual and were taught by Christian parents that you were evil, my guess is you would understand why so many committed suicide. They learned to hate their own selves, because of what they were taught.

Blacks at one time also hated their selves because of white Christians teaching them that they were worthless to the supposed god.

You people might believe you are special, but your opinions might amount to nothing more than what they are. and not what are certain they are.

<quoted text>Does your brain work? The rate of gay suicide has more than tripled since homosexuality has not been able to be treated and as homosexuals have been more accepted. In fact, gays who marry have a higher rate of suicide.
Okay racist, so please explain why blacks, Jews, pedophiles and rapists have a much lower rate of suicide, with blacks having the lowest.
Please explain how whites were able to teach blacks that God hated them, when blacks were not allowed in white churches, Jesus and the apostles came from Northern Africa and were black Northern Israelite Jews. That and the fact that blacks have a richer and longer religious history with Judaism and Christianity, than your white Christian experience. In fact, the man we learn about as Joseph, curator to Egypt, is a black Israelite who later became King Imhotep, the first double genius in the world.
So, bigot, next time you try to use blacks for your hate against Christians, then I suggest you check the origin of your bigotry. In fact, the first battle of the Civil War was between Kansas and Missouri, with racist slave owners trying to influence the soon to be free religious Pilgrim state to become a racist atheist slave owning state.
That's quite the sermon! Was a god speaking through you?

It's really difficult to assess whether a god has moved people in a certain direction, or if they moved their selves.

The line between false and real seems to slip one way and another, as the line becomes ever more blurred by the conflicting theologies.

Oh well ... if everybody who claims they will be rewarded, are rewarded in a hereafter ... there's going to be an overwhelming amount of happy "souls" flying in the sky, all from different religions.

If their theologies are based on truth, I hope they get along better in the hereafter than they do on earth.
