So you believe the bare truth of Catholicism is that the real Catholic religion is the only truth on earth???
That automatically divides you from those in other religions.
If you can't see that, you choose to stay blind.
The Catholic Church and the Catholic Doctrine of Faith IS, HAS and will ALWAYS be the FULLNESS of the TRUTH and the FULLNESS of the FAITH. I NEVER said that it is the ONLY truth on earth!!!(YOU DID)!! Again---it is the FULLNESS or COMPLETENESS of the TRUTH, that I/we as Catholics believe was God through His Son Jesus Christ was the original intended TRUTH, discarded, and rejected especially by bible only Protestants. There are many "partial truth religions and selected components (half-truth beliefs) which are incomplete religions, many of which are "spin-offs" from (and who have rejected) Jesus Christs One TRUE Catholic Church. Regardless, we ALL remain bothers and sisters of God Our Creator!!

Hey .
We don't judge who is not saved.
Several of you CC. say we will not go to heaven unless we become Catholic .
I know that "you" don't make that judgment RosSesz and the Catholic Church does not teach or make that judgement either. There are, however< bible only Protestants on this forum, that believe that they "are the final judge" as who is saved and who is not! Lets begin with Confrinting, who makes the claim that he alone, is "relieving God" of HIS "ultimate responsibility" as to who is going to heaven and who is not, who is saved and who is not, and who is a Christian and who is not!!

You got it..there is no vure....
When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was:(but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,
oinos: "wine" (literally or figuratively):--wine.
Wine: A beverage made of the fermented juice of any of various kinds of grapes, usually containing from 10 to 15 percent alcohol by volume.
But in that context of the post I answered ..if the priest is,worried about driving ..use watered down wine..Or just take a,sip.
Why are they worried ..I don't get it

Are they expecting to be over whatever the legal limit is.

And the man who now preaches that he is the second coming of Jesus has many devout groupies that follow him because he tells them that there is no sin or evil or a devil or hell.
The followers believe he preaches the REAL truth of Christianity and those other BAD theologians with their dogmas of hell were lying.
Religion is all BUNK!
I want to clarify this. First of all, I think any worship towards Jesus Christ is a good thing. Whether its in an African village with drums and dancing or somewhere in the US with drums and dancing.

The issue I have is the alter. The alter is where Christ is made present in the Eucharist. At your worship service, the alter is just a symbol of a symbolic host. The 'alter call' with a fake alter?

Also, I think its disrespectful to hear the Holy Gospel while doing your nails and sipping coffee - which I have witnessed myself at an evangelical gathering. Kids were running back and forth playing hide and seek.
I'm not used to that. At the Catholic Mass, we are required to stand when the Gospel is read and kneel when the liturgy of the Eucharist is done.

Hi June:

I agree, Christ is in only a few so called Christ-in todays, this label is very loosely termed to say the least. One is truly a Christ-in [Christian] if God saved him or her by His word and His Spirit, John 3:1-5, 1 Peter 1:23, John 4:23, Eph. 5:26. These are just a few verses that tells us God must do all the work in saving so we can believe on Him whom He hath sent, John 6:29, this way God gets all the glory and praise not of man least he should boast, Eph. 2:8-9. Thank you. Gary. 1 John 3:13-15.

I thought so.

Well I can only speak to churches I have Bern in .

We sit and stand depending .

But if anyone saw us doing our nails ...someone woukd definitely speak to it.
If
We have coffee it is AFTER the service when we greet other believer as
We drink.
Or eat

Sometimes we may have a supper.

The minister may or may not speak AFTER THE MEAL

IT is considered very poor manners to eat while any one talks .

In a business meeting we may have a beverage.

I have no idea what church YOU went to ..But no church I know fir a what you said .

How can you disagree with my previous paragraphs? The video you provided showed an Episcopal or Methodist 'mass'. It wasn't a Catholic Mass. That's fact. There was a woman Priest and a women Deacon.
The normal Catholic Mass does not have the kinda display your other examples showed. Basically Sera, you dug up something that is very very rare and tried to pass it off as a normal Catholic Mass. I don't think I like the deceptive approach you attempted.
I will repeat myself again...I did NOT try to pass that link off as a normal mass.I posted it as an abuse of a mass.Clay...don't make statements unless your 100 percent sure..it is a fact that the catholic church HAS derailed in its mass to draw in the younger crowds...

hojo, you are brainwashed and totally deluded.
The RCC teaches ALL BUT THE TRUTH.
The RCC is the originator of the JESUITS whose sole task was to confuse protestants and feed them lies and half truths so that they would return to "the mother church".
The RCC is also the originator of the Illuminati who I'm sure you will have heard of. They are the most deceptive organisation ever on this planet.

In no way would knowing protestants ever conceive of joining with the harlot church you adhere to.

The RCC has persecuted, tortured and burned many true saints throughout history.

You are one who has been spawned by this horrific religion as you constantly crow about it being the FULLNESS or COMPLETENESS of the TRUTH. Which it is not.

Anything the RCC has touched is corrupt and false.

Just look at the characters who have lead your abomination.

Research TEN WORST POPES and you will see how sick the RCC really is.

And of COURSE ... you are one of the saved ones ... RIGHT???

The story never changes. The ones who preach believe THEY are saved and others will go to hell.

It's a constant reminder to me why I am not in any religion.

But as a Catholic, you are certain that you are special to "god."

And you believe that all others in other religions have no hope of salvation because they don't worship an image of Jesus.

You don't fool me. I've read your posts.

Is that why priests are taking treatment from the Catholic institution for alcohol addiction?

You people don't know HOW to quit lying.

It's common sense that priests that sip the wine, will be tempted to drink the wine when they suffer emotional distress.

And many of them feel lonely, isolated, unable to develop relationships with women or men and not feel guilt because of their religion.

I feel compassion for the priests and anger at an institution so wretched as to twist human nature into something it was never meant to be.

At one time even popes were married.

Religion is a scam.
