There are denials in both camps. There are LOUD PROTESTS in both camps. There are admissions and repentance in both camps. You sin, we sin. Just as Jesus said.

There are misfits and hypocrites all over the place, Anthony. But the CC problem is compounded because they require thousands of men to deny themselves the life that God has given to mankind.
Jesus said that "not many" could live such a life. But the CC requires it of THOUSANDS (many) anyway.
Don't tell me that those men KNOWINGLY make such a pledge. Most of them long to serve God, but have no idea of the sacrifice that they are required to make. And you know that, if they do not make that vow, they are not accepted to the ministry by the CC.

Wrong. The men spend years discerning the call. There is absolutely no chance that they don't understand the commitment to celibacy for the sake of the kingdom. Men who decide they can't commit to celibacy can and often do become ordained deacons.

And the vast majority were homosexuals preying on adolescent boys.

Why is sexual abuse so much higher in protestantism where the ministers are allowed to be married?

Thank you confronting for that post, I wasn't sure where that scripture was.
As we can see Catholic's pay no regard to the Holy Scriptures.
We worship no one but the Blessed Trinity.

You obviously ignore the command about bearing false witness.

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
Is this the prayer you're talking about? It's beautiful, isn't it? There's also a chaplet to St. Michael which is even more lovely.
I'm sorry you see the need to belittle me and my beliefs. I guess the worst part is that you're getting so much joy out of doing so.
Well, as I said, I'm not the only one who sees your posts. We do nothing in secret, seraphima.
Your wrong marie, I do not get any joy and never thought about it.It must be something that YOU are getting. Why is it that you always turn and twist things around to make yourself look like the victum? you do this to everyone on this forum.And your right about one thing..I will agree with you on this,I am also not the only one seeing YOUR posts.Now lets talk about secrets....how many do you have?Do you have any fears?

You are one scary dude!

You damned right I become angry when I think of men in religious garb burning homosexuals at the stake while proclaiming that the homosexuals offended a god.

That makes me see RED, and I will do all in my power to prevent it from happening again!

I am proud to feel anger at such atrocities.

The catholic church has proven it self not to be an authority on the Bible , or anything relating to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Quite the opposite.
Your statues or idols of saints can't hear, or see, why don't you pray to Jesus yourself Anthony He will hear you and answer you.
You are correcting my error's , if what you believed was scriptural it may hold so weight Anthony but it's not.
The Bible never says Mary was forever a virgin, nor does it say God made her queen of heaven.
The catholic fathers made that up in 1950, seem to have taken them along time if your church started in the 300's as you claim why did they take so long???
I'll tell you why!!! some grumpier old man wanted to make a name for himself like other Popes who past stupid degrees of the catholic religion.
Your brain washed that's what you as Anthony, and any other catholic who believes that unsound doctrine.
You can't even pick up a Bible and read it for yourself and understand a chapter without fear of thinking your interpretation is not really.
God lays things on our heart through the Holy Spirit people to pray for and scriptures to help us against the enemy, and going through hard times.
What your saying is God is not able to relay His message to His people, with God all things are possible Anthony .
He speaks to us through His Holy Word the Bible, He lays scripture on our hearts and brings them to memory when we are troubled.
You don't know God Anthony you know of Him but you don't know Him.
He is a person, and He loves you.
You can go right to God in prayer, Jesus made it possible when He hung on the cross and tore the temple from top to bottom.
He done away with the earthy Priesthood , we as believers are part of the Royal Priesthood.
You need to get to know your maker and the man who died for your sins Jesus The Christ.
.

Proven to who? You? Lol.

I know God through His Son Jesus. He is in my heart, in my mind and in my soul at all times. He is the head of my Church and I am a part of His body. I would wish that you could experience the grace He pours out on us through the Sacrament of the Eucharist. You need prayers...I'm glad to offer some for you.

Not at all.

The RC mindset is not what you think/believe. So there is no need cherry-pick the scriptures, to reinforce and assert otherwise.

I can only speak in general here....

The RC mindset regarding "Saints" is simply this, all Christians for all time are united like one body, the Bride of Christ.

Try and see it from an eternal perspective, that past, present, and future saints are the Bride, One Body.

The Saints dead are "closer" to Christ in a sense that they no longer have the flesh to contend with...,

It is perhaps harder for a RC to distance, or separate themselves from those dead in Christ, than it is for you to take an eternal perspective.

I'd much rather have discussions of this sort, so I'll butt in.....
While I love those you listed and many others....Deborah, what a woman, huh? I love that she was a Judge!!....that is not the same as a female minister. Christ instituted the Priesthood at the Last Supper among the Apostles. It isn't the same as the "ministering" you're speaking of. We have our gifts, our work, and it's important, but it is not the Priesthood.
My mom said she felt humbled to serve Jesus as the mother of six children with the duty to raise us in the faith and that her role was just as important in God's eyes as any priest. I'll always believe that.

No more than the average person has.

You're obviously out for blood, Rose, and I'm not going to give it to you. I hope you and your cohorts enjoy yourselves at my expense. I'm sorry to see how proud you are of it.

You'll be fighting with yourself from now on as I'd rather not get down that low. You're out of control.

No, as I said, I didn't say I could prove it. I said it gave an "indication". And so it does.
And, no, everyone does not "know" that I have "lied many times". It's an easy PERSONAL ATTACK and used by many. That's the extent of it.
For some reason you seem to have an inflated opinion of yourself....I truly don't care about you or who you talk to. Why do you think it's always about YOU? It's not.
Believe me, I have no interest in any sort of supposed friendship with you. Sadly, I found that's not possible in your case.
Perhaps if you didn't slander the Catholic Church and make PERSONAL ATTACKS on her and her members, no one would have to correct you. I know you don't like being opposed but them's the brakes!
Yes, my name is Marie. Many people here know that. I've explained a few times that Regina is my Confirmation and middle name. Thank you for finally using it. You always used Regina on the phone in spite of my telling you it's Marie. It's about time!
DO not post to me again...you lied right now...I called you marie and also regina....I never personally attacked you only the catholic church.If you take that personally than that is on you.And you did say you could prove calling me and I asked you to post it...now take your Barbie dolls and go home...if you don't care about what I say than STOP REPLYING TO ME OR MAKING COMMENTS TO OTHER POSTERS REFFERING TO ME..LOL..I will no longer reply to any of your post from now on.Its pointless.

I agree. Why is it you only show your disgust over the Catholic sins?
**********
Maybe it is because the CC's loudly deny their sins. I understand that the U.N. is presently getting into that investigation.
The evangelicals loudly PROTEST offenders in their groups.(J. Bakker and J. Swaggart, for instance.)

You may want to reconsider, or explain your "denial" assumption.

Its a touchy/painful subject to reveal sins in public. I don't suppose many people get up in the middle of your church services and declare all their sins to their fellow believers, let alone to the public?

Its easy, to call past sins dead, and forgotten, when in fact that tends to make them fester. I think most often it tends to be sins of omission that do the longer harm to oneself, and others. When one can see their sin, and the direct result, the Christian tends to move more quickly to God for mercy and forgiveness.

Its best to forgive others before going to God. So I advise you to forgive those stupid/misinformed Catholics of their sins first!(smile)

Why DID you convert from Protestantism to Catholicism in the first place Robert?

Were you mesmerized by all that chatter about Catholic saints traveling in the presence of a god?

I believe that, too, Anthony. It's a matter of vocations. Your mother was a lovely woman, I know you miss her very much. I've been missing my parents, too. All the time, but sometimes more than others. In fact, I'm going to offer it up for the Holy Souls. I knew some good could come of it!
