<quoted text>thanks for clearing that up for me,and your right if jesus/god existed and the P/C church is his church,being the spirit that he suppose to be,he would not have allowed the atrocities that the church has committed,the church is no different than sodom&gamora,some of the popes brought the church to bankruptcy because of their debotchery,orgies,parties,havi ng statues made of themselves,molesting nuns and slave men,women and children. Pope Leo X was pretty bad when it came to spending money ,Leo aptly illustrates his greatest priority:“Since God has given us the papacy, let us enjoy it.” According to Alexandre Dumas,“Christianity assumed a pagan character” as Leo doggedly pursued worldly pleasures.So financially unstable did his position become that he was eventually forced to pawn off furniture, jewels, and statues from the palace, as well as borrow huge sums of money from creditors (who were ultimately ruined when he died).
In addition to living a life of splendor, Leo practiced nepotism, famously used the sale of indulgences to finance the reconstruction of St. Peter’s Basilica, and was even accused of homosexuality. In fact, some sources hold that he died in bed while getting it on with a youth. That accusation may or may not be true, of course, but one thing is for sure: Leo certainly let his love of luxury get the best of him. Pope Julius III (1487 – 1555)Julius withdrew to his palace and spent the majority of his time seeing to his own personal pleasures and keeping out of political affairs.it was his relationship with a boy named Innocenzo that tarnished his name more than anything. Julius discovered Innocenzo as a young beggar in Parma before ascending to the pontificate, and he adopted him as his own nephew. When Julius became pope, he elevated Innocenzo to the status of cardinal-nephew and bestowed many gifts and benefices upon him. In fact, the relationship between Julius and Innocenzo showed signs of being much more intimate than normal family ties, and many reports indicate that Julius actually had an extended sexual affair with the young man.

Clay well I am not going to beable to change your mind on that point so I won't try.
common sense and the word of God says I am right.
All you have to do is read the statistics, to prove what God warn about alcohol drink is true, and why we should not drink it.
I rest my case
But the Bible doesn't say we should not drink alcohol. You are sayin it!
Why don't you just say, "I think people should not drink alcohol, its not good for the liver and can lead to alcoholism". That would be more respectful of you.

Instead, you manipulate sacred scriptures for your own personal beef. That's a sin LTM.
Look, don't drink if you think it'll lead to drunkenness. But how dare you imply Catholics are sinning for having a glass of wine.

Don't you think it would be political and religious leaders who would again reject Jesus?
It is not the cradle Catholics/Protestants that are the problem. For if one is zealous for the faith by choice, it is far different than being part of a crowd, that becomes a mob.
Jesus in his travels saw thousands, and they him, so few became close, the rest were curious crowds, and eventually the leaders turned some of them into mobs against him at his crucifixion.
If so many people saw him how come no one wrote about him? why is there only one set of incomplete scriptures? there should be more written than that,and more complete.

how can it be a protestant church when it follows catholocism,except for the pope being universal,big deal,and if you read the news article episcopal will be catholic apparently,attendance is getting so low they have to merge with another church,and since the episcopal follows all their rules except one,it's the perfect choice of churches. wouldn't you agree?

Dont' tell me, tell the folks at your favorite website gotquestions.org because they say you lack common sense..

Jesus made alcoholic wine for the wedding guests. He gave it to His disciples.

If your bad experiences with drinking and drunks caused you and them to sin, that's not Jesus's fault.

Typical response from Catholics that can't face the truth!!!!

I repeat:

You are saying, in this case, "human afflictions" equate to alcoholics whom are drunkards. That every priest God called to the priesthood, God knew they would all become drunkards.
Logic says, since God knows when He calls a person, that person will become a drunkard, He also knows when He calls a person to the priesthood that person will not become a drunkard.

Any idea why He favors those He knows will become drunkards????!!!

Guest, you don't want to be Catholic again, because you are convinced our Pope murdered, tortured and covered up for pedophiles?

I don't like saying this, but its probably better for the Church that you left. We just can't have that level of ignorance around.

They don't follow Catholicism. The Episcopals, Anglicans, Methodist etc say they do, but their beliefs are very different. They have a liturgical church but that's about where the similarities end.
They are a doctrinal mess, but not nearly as bad as the evangelical born agains. God still dispenses His grace to the individual when they pray. But He does not lead them to scriptural truth as evident to the huge confusion they have with teachings.

I'm used to them using my daughter's suicide as leverage.

It gives them the same type of high as they get from believing others will burn in hell while a supposed savior gives them eternal love and well-deserved pampering.

Wrong. The Episcopalians are PROTESTANT, not "almost Catholic".

The Episcopalian community in DC is just one community, out of thousands across the country, that decided to leave the Episcopalian denomination and join the Catholic Church. The one in California that you cited is not joining the Catholic Church.

Just say you made a mistake and move on.

Michael:

If you as a person chooses not to relate to God, then there is no religion.

Those who choose to make religion their god, are putting the system in the place of God, and that is idolatry.

If religions are all man made, then you as an atheist should be very enthusiastic for religion.

You are making contrary statements, and that is for you to straighten them out.

You are correct. Whatever word they used wouldn't matter, as people in all religions have always bragged that they could tell the future and that they were full of "knowledge."

So yeah the Bible does say not to.
To much ferment wine got you too I see.
