I believe every word in the Bible....I know what it teaches regarding sin:

This in no way teaches that a person has the power to forgive sins!!!

We confess to God only, asking forgiveness in the name of our Saviour Jesus Christ...period.

Sins are not "healed"......they are forgiven by God and He alone..

Jesus gave authority to his first Pope/Apostles/Priests
Jesus said…..
"Peace be to you. As the Father hath sent me, I also send you... Receive ye the Holy
Spirit. Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall
retain, they are retained." (John 20:21-23). Then again: "Amen I say to you, whatsoever
you shall bind upon earth, shall be bound also in heaven; and whatsoever you shall loose
upon earth, shall be loosed also in heaven." (Matt. 18:18). In other words, Catholics
confess their sins to priests because priests are God's duly authorized agents in the world,
representing Him in all matters pertaining to the ways and means of attaining eternal
salvation. When Catholics confess their sins to a priest they ARE, in reality, confessing
their sins to God, for God hears their confessions and it is He who, in the final analysis,
does the forgiving. If their confessions are not sincere, their sins are not forgiven.
~~~

confess their sins to priests because priests are God's duly authorized agents in the world,

Priest presided under the Law....

We do not live under the Law..

WE LIVE UNDER GRACE....GRACE (THANK GOD) THAT IS NOT CONTROLLED BY THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH NOR IT'S MINIONS.

THE AUTHORITY OF THE CHURCH UNDER GRACE....IS THE MESSIAH ...

JESUS CHRIST GOD'S SON...

NO OTHER PERSON QUALIFIES.

THE MAN IN ROME ITALY.... CALLED THE POPE ..THAT HAS ATTEMPTED TO USURP THE POSITION OF THE HOLY GHOST ...DOES NOT QUALIFY...

HE IS JUST A CORRUPTIBLE MAN ATTEMPTING TO PLAY GOD...

Some excommunications can be lifted by a priest in confession. This is one of them.
Project Rachel is a wonderful ministry, truly a God send to those suffering the effects of abortion. It is for women (and men) of all faiths, or no faith. While it is highly therapeutic, it isn't "therapy" as such.
You changed your story, which is often common with people who swear they tell the truth.

No its not marge.
Lets not forget that married dads are more likely to abuse their very own kids.
Lets not forget that married pastors have a higher rate of abuse then Catholic priests.
According to the insurance companies that insure churches.
“Many people assume that not only priests but also teachers, Boy Scout leaders and other adults who work with kids are responsible for most child sexual abuse, but that's a misconception. Half of child sexual abusers are the parents of the victims; other relatives commit 18% of the offenses. And the sad truth is that preventing incest is nearly impossible. Less than one-third of perpetrators know their victims from outside the home. But non-family abusers may be easier to pick out--many are adults who shower uncommon attention on children--and thus easier to stop.”
“My research of cases over the past 20 years indicates no evidence whatever that Catholic or other celibate clergy are any more likely to be involved in misconduct or abuse than clergy of any other denomination -- or indeed, than non-clergy. However determined news media may be to see this affair as a crisis of celibacy, the charge is just unsupported.
Literally every denomination and faith tradition has its share of abuse cases, and some of the worst involve non-Catholics. Every mainline Protestant denomination has had scandals aplenty, as have Pentecostals, Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Jews, Buddhists, Hare Krishnas -- and the list goes on. One Canadian Anglican (Episcopal) diocese is currently on the verge of bankruptcy as a result of massive lawsuits caused by decades of systematic abuse, yet the Anglican church does not demand celibacy of its clergy.”

Constantinian shift

The Christians that stole the land from the Native Indians were eager to make America into a Christian nation. And all the while, as the blood ran in rivers, they used their bibles to preach of love.

Thieves in god-garb.

Chronology of American Religious History: 1600 - 2004

January 18, 1844 Senator (later President) James Buchanan introduced a resolution in the United States Senate that the United States be declared a Christian Nation and acknowledge Jesus Christ as America's Savior. The resolution was rejected, but many similar resolutions would be introduced during the following years, including at least one that would have amended the Constitution.

Court Jesters … Canada’s lawyers and judges take the stand to relate their funniest stories. Peter V. MacDonald.

Magistrate O. M. Martin, of Toronto, a high-school teacher before his appointment to the bench in the 1950s, was a full-blooded Cree Indian. One day Martin sentenced a man to thirty days in prison. As he was being led off to the cells, the man said to a policeman,“Imagine getting sent to the jug by a bloody Indian!”

The Magistrate heard this crack and he told the officer to bring the man back before the bench.

“Listen here paleface,” he told the offender. Me big chief here. You go pokey thirty more days for bad-mouthing big chief.”

NAHHH ... those days are all but gone.
Women of the Catholic faith have abortions and now take therapy after the abortions through "project Rachel" approved of by the pope. The hierarchy gave up on that silly idea of excommunication for those women.
Catholics now know that they can be Catholic, break the rules of the hierarchy and the pope's hands are literally tied. He can't frighten them or bully them as did the popes in earlier times. Laws of the land won't allow him to burn "sinners" at the stake, or put them to death for being homosexual, etc.
It took all the joy out of popery.
sarcasm intended.
It seems the Dark Ages are now long gone.
The papacy was at its full power from 538AD to 1798AD when the French General Berthier took the pope captive and exiled him.
Strange that it is 1260 years. Exactly what the Bible told us.

How did it change? They *are* excommunicated. Excommunications are lifted either by a Priest or a Bishop depending on the type of excommunication and the reason. Excommunication need not be permanent. If one repents, it will be lifted. It is a remedial action.
You don't understand what excommunication is, do you? That's often common with people who swear they know it all, but haven't got a clue.

I suggest that you all under the Trinity before spreading false doctrine or at least take a class in a proper seminary school.

There is Only ONE God
God exists IN three persons
The Father is God, the Son is God and the Holy Ghost is God.
They are not each other.

They are three separate and distinct persons who are one in essence.

To put another way, the Lord has a FATHER who is not him. The Holy Spirit spirated from the Christ and his Father.

About Mary - read on the Arc of the new and living covenant (Rev 12).

Pope Stephen VI: had his predecessor exhumed, tried, de-fingered, and thrown to the river
Stephen VI was Pope from 896 to 897. Fueled by his anger with Pope Formosus, his predecessor, he exhumed Formosus's rotting corpse and put "him" on trial, in the so-called "Cadaver Synod" in January, 897.

With the corpse propped up on a throne, a deacon was appointed to answer for the deceased pontiff, who was condemned for performing the functions of a bishop when he had been deposed and for receiving the pontificate while he was the bishop of Porto, among other revived charges that had been leveled against Formosus in the strife during the pontificate of John VIII.

The corpse was found guilty, stripped of its sacred vestments, deprived of three fingers of its right hand (the blessing fingers), clad in the garb of a layman, and quickly buried; it was then re-exhumed and thrown in the Tiber. All ordinations performed by Formosus were annulled.

John XII was a libertine, murderer and Satan worshiper which is already enough to be on this list. Besides that, he loved women, few men. His favorite was his father’s concubine Stephanie and his own niece. But, unfortunately this isn’t all! He had blinded his confessor Benedict; castrated Cardinal John and turn the Latern Palace into a brothel. During his mass, he gave wine toast to Satan and Roman Gods. He stole church treasure and raped peasants, but was finally killed by a jealous husband.
