This is how frustrating it is dealing with you fanatics:
Dad said, "He does so in Gods name. He doe not do so under his own personal authority."

you said: "no minister of the Gospel would say they have the authority to absolve sin. You been deceived buddy."

The thing is, I think you know what you're doing. I think all of you born again fanatics do. At some point you're going to look Christ in the eye.

Catholic convert and former Pentecostal minister Alex Jones said this about that: "What was I supposed to do once i came face to face with truth? Say 'that's nice, but it'll cause me problems? How do I look at the loving savior, who suffered and died for my sins, and say no"?

You been shown truth and given countless chances Marge. Your blatant disregarded for truth by invoking ignorance will not wash your hands - no matter how many times you crank up the Christian music and wave your hands back and forth.

Never for himself, and never on behalf of a god. So who is giving the pope information to pass along to the followers.
3 guesses first 2 don't count.

Romans 1:23

King James Version (KJV)

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptable God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed beasts, and creeping things.

Jeremiah 17

5 Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.

6 For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.

7 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.

8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

You mean brainwashed.

.... How can you become more of anything? Does your statement mean you were lessor a catholic the day before you read your bible last? If you read it 10 times more does that make you 10 times more a catholic? SILLY! SILLY!

For years you slammed the protestants for "bible only" belief, and now you come on here saying "the more I read my bible the more Catholic I became"

HIPOCRIT!

“The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in Heaven and earth.”— Pope Pius V, quoted in Barclay, Chapter XXVII, p. 218,“Cities Petrus Bertanous.”
"Take care that we lose not that salvation, that life and breath which thou hast given us, for thou art our shepherd, thou art our physician, thou art our governor, thou art our husbandman, thou art finally another God on earth."

The Church has never taught that the Pope is God.

We would expect nothing less from you as far as 'news' goes.

If more Michaels and Oxbows would leave the Catholic Church, the better off we'd be. Thanks for helping Catholicism by leaving, Mike! The Church became THAT much better when you and Ox left. ;-)

If you see anything in my post that is a proscription to faith healing, you need to slack off of the Jim Beam.....
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.

The apostle Peter believed that God sent Jesus...and He was exclusive above all..That Jesus had the words of eternal life...

His words were..

Joh 6:66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.

Joh 6:67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?

Joh 6:68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.

Joh 6:69 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.

No where...did Peter say anything about and exclusive Church in Rome Italy...having the words of eternal life, a franchise nor a monopoly upon the words of eternal life, or that that specific religious system was EVEN involved.

Those that make such a claim are playing god.

~~~

Jesus gave His life to ransom all man kind, to redeem us all.

THE ROMAN CATHOLIC (so called ) CHURCH CONDEMNS ALL THAT ARE NOT OF THEIR EXCLUSIVE RELIGIOUS GROUP...

Joh 3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Joh 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Jesus ransomed me.

There’s a sweet and blessed story
Of the Christ who came from glory,
Just to rescue me from sin and misery;
He in loving-kindness sought me,
And from sin and shame hath brought me,
Hallelujah! Jesus ransomed me.

Refrain:
Hallelujah! what a Savior,
Who can take a poor, lost sinner,
Lift him from the miry clay and set me free!
I will ever tell the story,
Shouting glory, glory, glory,
Hallelujah! Jesus lifted me.

From the depth of sin and sadness
To the heights of joy and gladness
Jesus lifted me, in mercy full and free;
With His precious blood He bought me,
When I knew Him not, He sought me,
And in love divine He ransomed me.

Refrain:
Hallelujah! what a Savior,
Who can take a poor, lost sinner,
Lift him from the miry clay and set me free!
I will ever tell the story,
Shouting glory, glory, glory,
Hallelujah! Jesus lifted me.

From the throne of heav’nly glory—
Oh, the sweet and blessed story!—
Jesus came to lift the lost in sin and woe
Into liberty all-glorious,
Trophies of His grace victorious,
Evermore rejoicing here below.

Refrain:
Hallelujah! what a Savior,
Who can take a poor, lost sinner,
Lift him from the miry clay and set me free!
I will ever tell the story,
Shouting glory, glory, glory,
Hallelujah! Jesus lifted me.

By and by, with joy increasing,
And with gratitude unceasing,
Lifted up with Christ forevermore to be,
I will join the hosts there singing,
In the anthem ever ringing,
To the King of Love who ransomed me.

Refrain:
Hallelujah! what a Savior,
Who can take a poor, lost sinner,
Lift him from the miry clay and set me free!
I will ever tell the story,
Shouting glory, glory, glory,
Hallelujah! Jesus lifted me.

Negative. There,s no absolution without repentance from the heart. This is only granted by God alone.
A regular every day sinner has no power to force forgiveness on anyone against the will of the Father.
Liberals have that illogical mindset too.
Of course, genuine penitence is required. Didn't mention that, but didn't know I had to.

Who's "forcing" anything? You go to confession-they don't go to you.

You're equating forgiveness with absolution.

God forgives the sin.

The priest provides absolution (removes the penalty).

You treat John 6 23:58 like it's radioactive.
