Maybe so. Some old Catholics are still stuck in the teaching that were planted in their minds as little children, and they choose to stay put in tiny boxes of blatant ignorance, as did all the popes.
Most people our age know that Judaism teaches about a messiah (yet to come)-even old Catholics like me.

I'd be a bit more judicious throwing the "blatant ignorance" thing around, were I you.

The penalty for sin is death.

And you all believe a priest can save you from death?

What?

It's "dyed".

"Dyed in the wool".

At least I've informed my opinion.

Go find some Jewish folks and let them know they don't need a messiah -that it was Jesus-and report back.

Judaism certainly instructs that there is a messiah and that he has not come yet.

Neither Pope called them either thing.
Your deliberate misquoting? Not so "UNBELEIVEABLE".
Radical feminist nuns has been in the news media the past 15 months. Yesterday Pope Francis referred to the nuns around the world to not act like OLD MAIDS OF SPINSTERS.

You are just another in a long line of denial. Next you will be saying the church hasn't put out nearly $3 Billion in lawsuits for sexually abusive clergy, and lets not forget the rest of the clergy who lied, deceived and covered up for the abusers.

1700 recorded years of sexually molesting clergy. Right in your own catholic canon laws and papal documents.

Lets see! Radical feminist nuns, old maid nuns, money laundering vatican bank scandal for the second time in 25 years, priests/bishops/cardinals/pope s coverups for sexual abusive clergy on children and you embrace all these guys. Shame on you!

Thank God I left the catholic church like most have.

very sad..........

"Died in the wool" is my terminology.

You don't own words. As do you, I can also manipulate words to suit my desires.

I just don't do it in the guise of leading others to the one and only god ... that according to theology ... just happens to be a Jew.

One more time.

As He promised, Jesus forgives the sin.

As He promised in Matt. 16:19, the priest gives absolution and the penalty for the sin is removed.

Jews were waiting for a military like leader. Jews do not believe in a trinity or sons of god. So why would Jesus be born the son of God into Judiasm if Judiasm does not teach or believe in the trinity?

......makes no common sense

A man living his entire life a jew, practicing his faith as a Jew then at the last minute dumps his life long religion to start another religion completely the opposite of the one he embraced for 33 years, a new religion with no plan of operation, no rules or regulations.(lol)

UNBELIEVABLE!

If the one and only god is a Jew, a question of interest might be ... "Why would he favor Catholics or Protestants?"

I prefer the Hindu mythology. It's not so greedy in its claims. They have enough deities to serve everybody and anybody who wishes to join their religion.

This fighting over myths is so silly, it's difficult to choose which group of believers is the silliest.

Jews believe in one God, not three persons in one God. So! why would Jesus a Jew claiming to be the son of God be born into a religion that doesn't believe in sons of God.

You said that the Pope called them old maids and spinsters. He didn't.

"Now new Pope Francis calls these 80 year old women "old maids and spinsters"

Not very nice comments about 80 year old women who dedicated their entire lives to the church sacrificing having a loving husband and children only to be slammed by the very church they help build.

UNBELIEVABLE! "

You can't read, and I'm the one in "denial". Yeah.

Having been called out, of course you revert to the "Godwin's Law" of Catholic discussion, the sex scandal.

Dumbass. You were better off parroting June's posts. at least she remembers what she writes.

He didn't call the old maids or spinsters, so what did he say?

LOL.

Do you believe that another savior other than Jesus is coming in the future? Or do you believe that Jesus is the last one needed to come to earth with the absolute truth given to Catholics?

The Jews were the chosen few. Why would they have needed a savior ... especially one that would bar them from heaven unless they were Catholic?
