What God lacks is convictions- stability of character. He ought to be a Presbyterian or a Catholic or something- not try to be everything.

Some "use" ritual(because they do not possess the capability of knowledge, understanding, and ability to surpass it) in their religious quest.
The same is true in Pagan traditions. Wicca etc. use "ritual for the same reason. The "wizard" has little or no need for the practice of ritual.

Words have the ability to stir and manipulate emotions.

Concerning what we choose to believe, the onus is on us.

The following is one part Thomas Moore’s poem…..”Farewell but Whenever”, also called “The Scent of the Roses.”

Let fate do her worst, there are relics of joy
Bright dreams of the past which she cannot destroy;
That come in the night-time of sorrow and care
And bring back the features that joy used to wear.
Long, long be my heart with such memories filled
As the vase in which roses have once been distilled.
You may break, you may shatter the vase if you will,
But the scent of the roses will hang ‘round it still.

Being an ex Catholic of 40 years, I can verificate (new word)the absolute truth in your words.

I agree...and I can give you all the verses in the bible that can prove that as a fact if you know the history timeline of the church.
Either the bible is lying, or the CC is...simple as that.
Most of it is from Paul's own writings.
well religious people declare the bible infallible, so it must be the people (church) are lying.

<quoted text>your right in the fact that you have "ONLY" true church history, outside of any teachings and writings from church leaders, you have no history at all to support yours and the Vatican's phony belief they are the true church, when they have done more to disgrace god an Jesus than any other church on earth...read history from outside sources and you will not find one ounce of truth anywhere that supports the churches position except it is corrupted and a perverted church, out for nothing but power, money, and total control of the religious world, but thanks to their own stupidity, they won't be around much longer. last I heard was 1 billion an counting. good thing for the church there are third world countries that don't know the truth behind the church, that is why they are going there recruiting for the church, trying to rebuild their dwindling bank accounts, using poor people to try and rebuild the church,taking their last dollar and giving them nothing in return.
The TRUTH Jesus Christ's One True Apostolic Catholic Church has survive, heretics, hypocrites, false teachers and preachers for over 2000 years--and will CONTINUE to do so "despite" those who "hate" the Catholic Church, such as you Jethro8. The Catholic Church, biblically and historically PROVEN,founded and established by Jesus Christ Himself--continues to grow by over 1.5% each and every year (and will continue) to do so, while every bible only Protestant denomination "continues to decline"! WHY?? Because Jesus told us that "the gates of hell" shall not prevail against HIS CHURCH)----You, Jethro8 can say and believe ANYTHING YOU WANT! It becomes "your problem" to deal with---not mine!! YOU ARE THE ONE that is "in a frenzy" and has "emotional hatred" against the TRUTH of Jesus Christs On e TRUE
Catholic Church!.... I'm (totally) at peace with my own faith in Christ, Daily Mass, the Eucharist, and my own Salvation, growing in the TRUTH of over 2000 years of biblical and historical teachings that is manifested itself in and through Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church. I'll remain with the TRUTH! You, Jethro8 can do what you want!!!!!

A Connecticut priest with a reputation of caring for the poor has shocked his parishioners after being accused of faking a terminal illness to cover up the alleged theft of $1 million from his diocese.

The Rev. Kevin Gray, a 26-year veteran of the Hartford Catholic Diocese, is being investigated by the Waterbury, Conn., police department for allegedly taking money over a seven-year period from a savings fund established for the Sacred Heart parish, money that was to be used for building renovations and church debt, according to the police…

According to Rev. John Gatzak, spokesman, the Hartford Archdiocese became suspicious over the past year as they asked Gray to submit several years’ worth of annual financial reviews from his parish. Gray allegedly said he was unable to complete the reviews because of a serious terminal illness he was battling and asked for more time. Gatzak said that although they gave Gray some leeway and extra time to submit his reports, they began to look at his parish financial records and say they made some troubling discoveries…

Gatzak, 64, said the news has been ever more painful for the parish and it’s parishioners because of the fact that they believed Gray was battling a serious illness, an illness they now believe may have simply been a lie to try and give the priest more time to allegedly cover up the lost funds.

Look, I said I wasn't going to argue with you and I'm not. If you were honest you would look to when and where this all started.....Seraphima's post that the Church was an abortion and the Bride of Frankenstein.
You both expected *us* to be silent, to let her say what she will without impunity. You have to defend her, she's your wife. I don't expect anything less from you. None of us does.
That's about the size of it.
It is not their fault that your church is a fraudulent auspices of the church of Jerusalem. They simply(as many others) point out the facts of it's fallacies.
Rather than prove them wrong(because you can't), you people resort to personal defamation and strawman arguments...making complete fools of yourselves in the process.

If I was dying from any reason, I would not suggest to those left behind that they love one another, as from my opinion, a statement such as that simply complicates matter for believers.

I might suggest that the ones left behind try to do their best in spite of the fact that mortal humans are selfish and have a deep need to manipulate and dominate others.

From my perception trying to be less selfish is a more realistic goal than all that nonsensical preaching about love, which rarely amounts to anything but disappointment.

Prove you wrong??? The fact is that we don't even (care) what you believe--so why should we waste our time proving you wrong when I/we as Catholics (already know) believe, follow and adhere to the TRUTH of Jesus Christs One True Apostolic Catholic Church--that WE KNOW IS THE TRUTH!!! Believe what you want! We as Catholics have "already made our choice of TRUTH!! The fact is that ANYTHING you say has little or no validity! It is ALL EXAGGERATED, HYPED UP --anti-catholic editorialized liberalism!!! Go live with it, if that's what makes you happy!! I/we as Catholics will continue to follow "the TRUE FAITH and Salvation in Jesus Christ, in and through HIS One True Catholic Church!!!

Christians continually make others feel worse by stating that others will go to hell and they will go to heaven.

If they would only suggest that maybe all people will go heaven, they would stop being enemies.

How simple is THAT?

By changing your sermons, you will break down the walls that of religion that now divide.

Wouldn't that be refreshing? Or do you prefer to keep right-fighting?
