Oh, I wanted some Beam after reading the post-
You:
Jas 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.("That ye may be healed" speaks of a physical healing of an illness....sins are forgiven...not healed)"
It was the "physical healing of an illness" as a result of the preceding prayer that got me to "faith healing", Ox.
In common usage, faith healing refers to notably overt and ritualistic practices of communal prayer and gestures (such as laying on of hands) that are claimed to solicit divine intervention in initiating spiritual and literal healing.

Show me these words in my post "gestures" "laying on of hands".....

what claims earlier today? About the sex abusive clergy and the ones who lied and covered them up? About the money laundering scandal in the vatican bank. The radical feminist nuns who do more physical work than any priest I ever saw.

I remember in grade school the two nuns shovelling snow in front of the churh while the two priests were inside probably watching Jerry Springer.

Nuns are the backbone of the church, they are going the way of the doh doh bird.......sad.

How you can tell the catholic church is in trouble is when the most conservative of catholic men and women hardly ever today answer the calling to the priest/sisterhood. Remember these are the most dedicated catholics and with all the shite going on in the church with lies and deceit, I can't blame anyone of them.

Your minister cannot claim that and I hope he does not.
Christ said that the priest has this authority (Matt. 16:19).
Buddy.
**********
Mat 16:13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his discipleS (plural), saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?
Mat 16:14 And THEY said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
Mat 16:15 He saith unto THEM, But whom say ye that I am?
Mat 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
Mat 16:17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
Mat 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter (PETROS...A PIECE OF ROCK), and upon this rock (PETRA...A MASS OF ROCK...PETER SAID TO THE CHRISTIANS, "YOU ARE LIVELY STONES") I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Mat 16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Jesus was speaking to all of the disciples. The ROCK of which He spoke was the revelation of Himself by the Holy Spirit.
Peter himself defines the church as lively stones...all of them pieces of the building (I Pet. 2:5)...a spiritual house (church). In verses 6-8 Peter makes it plain that JESUS is THE ROCK.
Jesus gave the authority to the eleven disciples to fulfill the Great Commission:
Mat 28:16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
Mat 28:17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.
Mat 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto THEM, saying, ALL power is given unto ME in heaven and in earth.
Mat 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Mat 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
NO MAN is God on the earth.
Catholic priests have apostolic authority (via ordination) as conferred by Christ in the above passages.

Maybe that's why you're having difficulty here.

Without that authority, no man could teach the Gospels authoritatively. We believe the scriptures where Christ ensured that His message will be taught with His authority until His return.

If I understand correctly, your sect does not believe that Christ's ministerial authority on Earth survived past the death of the last apostle.

Are you saying Dan that it is correct to refer to the nuns around the world to "not be old maids" You would say that to a nun?

Would you be OK if a neighbor said that to your wife?

2010 the roman catholic bishops conference in Florida indicated that today around america about only 1 in 4 roman catholics actually goes to mandatory sunday mass weekly. 50 years ago those numbers were reveresed.

Imagine a large corporation and only 25% of the workers came to work when required.

The catholic church has already lost western europe. America/Canada are next. Today 1/3rd of all roman catholics in america are Latino. Where are all the western european catholics that once almost totally dominated the catholic landscape in america?

All say that he told them not to be old maids.

Thousands of news services around the world reported that he told them not to be old maids.

No news services around the world have reported that he called them old maids. Just the UNBELIEVABLE news reporting you provide related that.

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.
You don't believe your own NABre pope approved Bible!!!! So, tell me.....what is the source of your "wisdom"????!!!

Quote: Whatever you bind…loosed in heaven: there are many instances in rabbinic literature of the binding-loosing imagery. Of the several meanings given there to the metaphor, two are of special importance here: the giving of authoritative teaching, and the lifting or imposing of the ban of excommunication. It is disputed whether the image of the keys and that of binding and loosing are different metaphors meaning the same thing. In any case, the promise of the keys is given to Peter alone.

The "pope called nuns old maids" crap.

Your diatribe here simply confirms my earlier point. You'll use or create anything for the express purpose of bashing Catholicism. The sex scandal issue is simply a tool of yours for that purpose. You aren't concerned about that issue to any extent past which it can be used for by you to denounce Catholicism.

Sad that you see fit to use their suffering as a rhetorical tool.

You were the one who conjoined "effective fervent prayer" in the passage with the healing of an illness. You said that's what the passage from James spoke of (vs. healing of sin).

........There is not a single contemporary historical mention of Jesus, not by Romans or by Jews, not by believers or by unbelievers, not during his entire lifetime. This does not disprove his existence, but it certainly casts great doubt on the historicity of a man who was supposedly widely known to have made a great impact on the world. Someone should have noticed.

.....The Gospel story, with its figure of Jesus of Nazareth, cannot be found before the Gospels. In Christian writings earlier than Mark, including almost all of the New Testament epistles, as well as in many writings from the second century, the object of Christian faith is never spoken of as a human man who had recently lived, taught, performed miracles, suffered and died at the hands of human authorities, or rose from a tomb outside Jerusalem. There is no sign in the epistles of Mary or Joseph, Judas or John the Baptist, no birth story, teaching or appointment of apostles by Jesus, no mention of holy places or sites of Jesus’ career, not even the hill of Calvary or the empty tomb. This silence is so pervasive and so perplexing that attempted explanations for it have proven inadequate.- The Jesus Puzzle
