There is only one Baltimore Catechism, Rose, and it says that God is our Creator. There have been several editions of the Catechism over the many years of The Church's 2,000 year old history starting with the Didache ca. 70 A.D.
The Catechism today, as the Catechism from 55 years ago, states that God is our Creator. There have been no changes in our teachings. Doctrine cannot be changed. You should have learned that first and foremost. This is what we believe today and have always believed:
I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

What "stamp of approval"?? lol

We are still taught that God created man in His image and likeness:

THE DIGNITY OF THE HUMAN PERSON

ARTICLE 1
MAN: THE IMAGE OF GOD

1701 "Christ,... in the very revelation of the mystery of the Father and of his love, makes man fully manifest to himself and brings to light his exalted vocation."2 It is in Christ, "the image of the invisible God,"3 that man has been created "in the image and likeness" of the Creator. It is in Christ, Redeemer and Savior, that the divine image, disfigured in man by the first sin, has been restored to its original beauty and ennobled by the grace of God.4

1702 The divine image is present in every man. It shines forth in the communion of persons, in the likeness of the unity of the divine persons among themselves
http://www.vatican.va/archive/ccc_css/archive...

Do you know what is meant by the "image and likeness of God"? Do you think we look like God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth?

you probably laughed when he rambled on about going to an altar call, didn't you?

and FYI, an altar call is when a person comes to the Saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

A VERY SACRED TIME, WHILE THINKING THAT SOME PEDOPHILE PRIEST CAN CHANGE A PIECE OF GRAIN INTO JESUS CHRIST IS CERTAINLY NOT A SACRED TIME OR EVENT.

The verse you used has the word "evil" in it. The original word in Hebrew is "ra", which means "evil, distress, misery, injury, calamity". Our English language is at fault for your misunderstanding the intent of that verse....

Third time is the charm....I am not a non-Protestant. I do Protest.
I was led by the Spirit and an act of free-will. It was a process, not a snap decision. I found depths of spirituality which are not present in Protestantism, which brought me to a decision....
If evil mean misery, injury, calamity ... and god created evil ... what IS your point, besides more of your drivel???

Yes you ARE a non-Protestant. I suggest you stop lying. You left the Protestant religion to become a Catholic.

Sorry June. JW's invented their own translation, and do not read the same Bible as do other Christians. They changed quite a bit of the original to "their" way of thinking....
You did the same when you used the same bible as a Protestant as you do when you are now a Catholic ... and you translate it to mean that YOU are not a heretic and others are and YOU will be saved and others won't ... blah, blah, blah.

It's a handy-man's and now woman's book of ignorance.

No one would notice LOL. The medical examiner would say died of natural causes. That is if they did an autopsy; probably would not bother. God knows this so he has let you slide. I would miss your post!
As do all others, you make excuses for your image of a god.

I mocked all the gods and goddesses ... I tested them ... and they did not care to prove to the people of the world that any of them would and could put "mockers" to death if they so choose.

Religion is bunk!

ReginaM:
One can only scratch the surface concerning the broad writings of the saints....And that may be the most difficult aspect, in narrowing down the choices of reading material.
I have gotten into the habit of trying to read from different ages, times, to give a more dynamic view of things.
I think the age we live in offers such a narrow view of things, that it carries over into beliefs, such as you mention, the view of the RCC as being "one-dimensional". Little do people know....
Good idea, deliberately reading from different ages. But I think we tend to do that anyway. A certain saint will come into the forefront and I'll look them up, check out any writings, book reviews, etc. That often throws a lot of the more contemporary saints into the mix, which can be very helpful. There are so many fantastic contemporary (or nearly so) holy men and women that have lived exactly what we've been praying in the Office. Talk about being humbled!!

I agree, we have gotten narrow. Good word!

(And if I don't stop misspelling "predominantly"....a long with several other words....)

Do you believe that the god in that movie is trying to tell other people that they should all belong to your specific Christian religion so they can spend eternity with a Jew???

<quoted text>I tend to agree with you on this. From where I sit the RCC doesn't really like people reading the Bible and coming to their own conclusions.
Many Protestant churches have the same flaw.
For mew it's the height of human vanity for any group to claim they know what God wants and what the Bible really means.
That is why I now shun most churches. I like attending them. But my spiritual life is between me and God. No one else.
But my guess is ... you believe that your interpretation of what the bible means to you is what it should mean to others, if only they were as wise as you.

Home mental digestion of those words is based on the same arrogance as is the arrogance of those that congregate in groups, and my guess is you are certain that you will be saved and others will spend eternity in hell.

It most always ends up that the story told favors the believer.
