You have such a beautiful spirituality, Robert. A little lite reading, LOL! Although, comparatively, I guess it is! It helps to read small amounts at a time as the writings are very deep. Also, don't forget to get out and live the faith, if possible. I don't know your situation and it sometimes isn't in the cards, but it's easy to close oneself in with God and His saints and forget to bring Him to others. I've been guilty of that far too much lately.
Peace be with you!
Regina

Who said I am Robert?

Prayer time is essential. And it is built up over time.

Living the faith is most important for others. Thank you for the thought.

Getting out for me is difficult. But to be honest it is partially by choice, and part circumstance.

One must be moved by the Spirit. And when this happens, living faith; one's presence in a situation, even without words brings a certain peace beyond understanding, to others. It is wonderful gift from God.

WHY?

God doesn't face the sin of allowing a hell in his kingdom ... and people don't seem to ask him to repent of his sin.

It seems you overlooked that teaching in Christianity how others will go to hell for eternity.
I see nothing good in that belief that you maintain to idolize.
June VanDerMark:

So many factors, in so many souls on earth. Your reduction is oversimplified, perhaps more for your own benefit than your understanding of heaven and hell.

Some are fortunate in their formation of conscience, and others whether vincible or invincible in knowledge/ignorance helps determine their status, at least we know here on earth.

The theology is totally obnoxious and so divisive and self-serving as to be BEYOND belief.
Well...you may have been under a spell alright but it wasn't as a born -again Christian.

Do you suppose the world would forget the perversion because the master pervert resigned? Joseph Ratzinger's (pope Benedict)history of covering up the attrocities is legendary.

Yes, sick is a word but a word not nearly strong enough to define the depth, width and bredth of the Roman Catholic perversion. Not even close. Then on top of the coverup the vatican creates sex stories detailing other perverts to divert attention away from themselves. Sick...oh yes...most definitely.
Regina, your money supports the actions of your organization from top to bottom. If you keep giving they will continue to sodomize little boys. Sleep well tonight as your priests go about their business on your dime.

Is he right or wrong? If what he published is a lie why didn't the pope sue him? PARANOIA? Not me. Your pathetic cult is suffering from paranoia wondering when the next pervert will jump from behind the bushes onto a little boy. Paranoia is your every day life not mine.

Hermeneutics Smutics:

I think you are correct.

I am a great believer in repentance first.

Get one's bearings, before stepping out in faith.

Sin tends to fester in the soul. So the quicker to repentance, the better. And that is of course due to a well regulated and tuned conscience.

Fr. Barron's "Youtube Heresy" ~ Part 4
The fourth and final "Youtube Heresy"is the over-exagerated relationship between religion and violence. This has become completely exacerbated after September 11th, 2001. The basic argument against faith from this perspective is that religion is so irrational, it must resort to violence. The arguments from this particular angle against Catholicism almost always brings up the Crusades, Inquisition, and most recently the sex-abuse scandal in the Church.
Although the reports of the Crusades are extremely unbalanced and the Inquisition numbers have been greatly overblown. The Crusades were in reality a retaliation against the Muslim invasion of the Holy Land and their violence against Christian pilgrims. For example, a group of about 7,000 German pilgrims were en-route to Jerusalem when a group of Muslim occupiers slaughtered all but 2,000 of them (all un-armed and many women and children). Nevertheless, I digress.
You can go "tit-for-tat" with what this and that group did throughout the course of history, but it is still really begging the question. The Church is holy, but Her members are sometimes not. This of course is not a license for clergy to do whatever they want, but a reality check. The sins committed within the Church, although many of them repulsive, do not alter Her mission which is immutable.
The Church has both human and divine dimensions. The Church with Her sacraments, teachings and apostolic tradition make up the mystical body of Christ. However, the people who are in the Church (even in the highest positions), are not prevented from doing stupid and sometimes horrible things. For an institution about 2,000 years old, its nothing less then miraculous that it is around at all but with 1 billion plus members. Its worth remembering also that the worst perpetrators of violence of all time were Hilter, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot. They were not the products of religion, but militantly atheistic anti-religious ideologies.
I know you've been all bent out of shape lately, but really want to share this with you anyway. I think you'll like it:

http://cost-of-discipleship.blogspot.com/

Great Greek Orthodox blog that I found while searching for The Jerusalem Bible. He's a fan of the 1966 edition and so am I (for the most part, anyway). Read his answer in the comments section of this post:

http://cost-of-discipleship.blogspot.com/2011...

Many Catholics don't like this translation but it's got a nice little following. As long as one knows the faith, I don't see it as a problem and it's used for the lectionary in most other English speaking countries outside the US.

Anyway, I like this blogger's spirituality very much and thought you might, too. I think he said he was practicing a sort of part-time asceticism. You don't have to reply. If you enjoy it, wonderful!!

I am sadden to see that you had been PERSONALLY attacked for stating what the world has aleady has known for decades.To debate a subject is one thing, to attack a person because you dont like what he says is another.To attack a person who is knowingly sick is even more discusting and does not exhibit what the teaching of the True Church of Christ would be.Just think if Christ told the the loose woman that was about to get stone,you are a discusting pervert, No as I recall he said "He who is without sin,cast the first stone" Truly Jethro,I pray that you are doing well and I ask you please for prayers for Hermi...God Bless you...

I'm sorry, but you sound so much like Robert. Exactly like him. I beg your pardon.

God belongs to all free beings.
He is the life of all,
the salvation of all—
faithful and unfaithful,
just and unjust,
pious and impious,
healthy and sick,
young and old—
just as the diffusion of light,
the sight of the sun,
and the changes of weather
are for all alike;
‘for there is no respect
of persons with God.’

Two bible verses that are obviously missing from your abridged version.
The truth is, a pentecostal preacher is more likely to be guilty of sexual abuse than a priest, but you're ignorant of the facts because "you don't use links".
"Their minds are clouded with darkness; the hardness of their hearts breeds in them an ignorance, which estranges them from the divine life; and so, in despair, they have given themselves up to incontinence, to selfish habits of impurity."

Oldjg, lets establish this fact: You're not a Deacon; you were not called by Jesus Christ; you're not any kind of authority on the Sacred Scriptures no matter how many times you look in the mirror and say, "yes I am. yes I am. yes I am"
You are so removed from Jesus Christ.

All you did was design your own Jesus Christ with the NT.
Apparently you thunk the NT was the only thing Christ established about Christianity.(oddly weird since you can't even show from scripture that Christ Started such a Ministry, so good luck explaining to Our Lord why you teach it!!)

Xgolfer the catholic church did not do the holocaust. And protestant churches have many doctrinal errors. Protestant doctrine is full of contradictions. For example some protestant groups say all you need to do is accept Jesus as your savior. However, every christian protestant or catholic does this. However, the exact same groups say they are right and you need to be part of there group only to go to heaven. That is one of many contradictions and errors in protestant doctrine

(3)Not an authority on scripture (according to the CC)
(4)So removed from Jesus Christ (And YOU are an authority on THAT?

Then you question Christ's authority in the NT.
