Joseph Smith claimed that because of his visions from "god" ... he restored the bible to it's original truth.

What a crock of manure.

This fellow is another smooth talker. He's so smooth that even though he admitted that they like his lies ... his followers didn't catch on to his con-game.

They don't want to see his lies. They desire to hear what he tells them. He's SMOOTH.

I watched a program on Primetime OWN.

The man who calls himself the second coming of Jesus told the person interviewing him (verbatim)... "So you tell the millions of followers I have ...’Dat guy's a liar.’ You know what dey gonna say?...‘I prefer his lies.’"

Here he is in person …

I actually though, jethro8, that you had more intellect, intelligence and reasoning to know the Truth as to why we worship and proclaim Jesus Christ in His One True Catholic Church-----"but I can see that it still continues to escape your anti-catholic mind.... We as Catholics belong and adhere to the teachings of the Catholic Church because it is the "only" Church that teaches the TRUTH in accordance with Sacred Scripture and Tradition not because of the Inappropriate Conduct of some of its members. The Catholic Church teaches that it is wrong to kill, commit adultery, rape, etc. but that doesn't guarantee that a Catholic or a Catholic priest will never kill, rape, commit perversion, or commit sin..... Jesus initiated His One True Church to save sinners of which we all are....The Perverted personal conduct of a small % priests who commit sin does not negate or change the TRUTH OF DOCTRINE that the Catholic Church teaches and has "always" taught for over 2000 years. Protestants also have sexual perverted ministers in their Church which actually (equals or exceeds) those in the Catholic Church. The issue here is TRUTH OF DOCTRINE vs Personal CONDUCT. I don't judge either the Catholic or the Protestant Church based upon the inappropriate conduct of its members. I judge them on the basis of whether they teach the TRUTH based upon the Sacred Scripture and Apostolic Tradition....... That is the reason why there is such a ("BIG BIG DIFFERENCE"! The Catholic Church is the ONLY Church that teaches the FULLNESS of the TRUTH and the FULLNESS of the Faith and that is "precisely" why we, along with the other 1.169 Billionb Catholic around the world continue to worship, adhere to, follow and believe in the TRUE teachings of Jesus Christ and HIS infallible TRUTH which is ONLY proclaimed and taught in Jesus' One True Catholic Church!! Every one of the bible authors were also sinners: Moses was a murderer, David was an adulterer and Paul said "I am the worst of sinners"! This only shows how "ridiculous, confused, mixed up and (dumb-founded) you bible only Protestants are in your ingrained and distorted anti-Catholic thinking.
there is nothing to escape from,because it does not exist,i do stay away from the churches false teachings.did you read my news article about the woman who died in a catholic hospital after 3 days of begging for help because she was miscarrying and they just let her die,why? because it's a catholic country,you can keep your sick institutions.hospitals are suppose to help people not stand there watch them die.

What a lot of arrogant SLOP.
That your own clique will listen to such drivel bespeaks of mindsets that are on the same arrogant PAGE.
If you were born the child of a Muslim, or a Jew ... you would only know Islam or Judaism ... PERIOD ... and you would be just as certain of future bliss in an afterlife as you now believe as a Christian.
I suggest you stick your self with a pin so you can wake up. It seems there IS no other way.
June VanDerMark:

If I were born a Jew, Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist, then I would be under those societal norms. True. And if given the opportunity to explore beyond them, depending on circumstance, I would have searched.

I am not a Hindu, Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, nor could I predict, how I would have responded, nor the society around me. My life would have been different. But I am, who I am, and not someone else.

But I do not deny other religions, and followers in those religions salvation out of lack of knowledge.

Your thought is mostly aimed at conscience, and its formation.

Hermeneutics Smutics:
There is no peace in the soul of one with pride.
Interesting little piece from a blogger about St. John Cassian:

The Eight Demons of St. John Cassian
My life, along with many others (though I forget this often), has been a continual struggle with sin. I am not alone in this, and there is a kind of comfort in that. I found this out especially when I stumbled upon some writings of St. John Cassian in the Philokalia, arguably the most important spiritual text in the Christian East aside from the Scriptures.

The first vice that Cassian speaks of is control of the stomach,followed by unchastity, avarice, anger, dejection, listlessness, self-esteem, and pride. I think that "self-esteem" would jump out immediately to the modern reader of the above list, but in this case, Cassian seems to be referring to a kind of pride, a seeking out and enjoying of the compliments and flattery of others.

Ignatius was Catholic!
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>>
An important milestone into development of Christian self-consciousness or Christian self-identity will be the emergence of the word "Christianity." This word appears for the first time in the writings of a church thinker of the early 2nd century of our era named Ignatius, who lived in Western Asia Minor, modern day Western Turkey.

Out out brief candle
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player

Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,

Kay, you are not my teacher. I find your first three sentences very condescending. Please stop it.
You downplay "church" because your "church" was not founded by Jesus Christ. When a Catholic refers to the Church, it has a much deeper, richer meaning. It is spiritual, it is visible, it is God's, it belongs to Him. No words I could say here would come close to conveying it's true meaning which we, as Catholics, know in our hearts, minds, and souls.
There are thousands of examples of what God has given us through His Church. I'll start with this one: The Liturgy of the Hours/The Divine Office.
Catholics are forever trying to sell to the world, the idea that Christ, a Jew, and His 12 Jewish apostles, during the time that Christ was on earth, established the Roman Catholic Church, that everyone knows, that even as of today, is for Gentiles and not Jews!!!!

Quote: After excerpts from the second volume of the pope’s book on Jesus made the rounds last week, featuring his rejection of the idea that “the Jews” killed Christ, the full text adds another point with important implications for Christian/Jewish relations -- in effect, that Christianity “must not concern herself with the conversion of the Jews.”

The comment comes in Benedict XVI’s book Jesus of Nazareth: Holy Week, the full text of which was released today.

I'm very glad to hear you say that those outside of your teachings can be saved. That's an unusual stance for a protestant fundamentalist.
Kay, you and the others don't understand what is meant by "one true church". We've explained it enough times, so that shouldn't be so. In any case, the title of this thread is incorrect as the Pope never said that. Again, this is something we've explained ad nauseum, but it falls on deaf ears. It doesn't really matter, as nowhere will you read that the Pope ever said such a thing. However, Jesus did found only one church, and taught only one truth. The Apostolic faith doesn't contradict itself. For instance, they did not teach that baptism remits sin one time, and then just the opposite at another location. That did not occur until fairly recently with the advent of protestantism.
Did I curse? I don't think so. Don't think I called names either. Although yesterday one of the men was calling someone a clown, etc. But he often does when he gets frustrated. "Buffoon" and "idiot" are other favorites, with nary a word from anyone. I think the Catholic recipient was very Christ-like in his response.
But, yes, we are to give a good example.
Will someone get out the toilet paper, Regina is throwing her crap all over the place again.

Although I understand you've been looking for a date since getting dumped, I hate to tell you she's out of your league and she's celibate. I'm sure you'll have no trouble finding a more agreeable canine in the neighborhood you live in.
