Catlick dogmaw...not based on Scripture.....

he Roman Catholic Church alleges that Mary’s parents presented her in the temple when she was but three years old, and that “the child herself mounted the Temple steps, and that she made her vow of virginity on this occasion”(Maas, 464F). This would suggest that at the tender age of three, Mary had considerable knowledge of human anatomy. It further hints that she understood the intricacies of sexual union. Moreover it indicates that she likely foreknew the fact that she would bear the Christ child, and that she perceived somehow that it would be inappropriate for her ever to engage in honorable intimacy with a legitimate husband.

This theory of Mary’s “perpetual virginity” became official dogma at the Council of Chalcedon in A.D. 451, and thus is binding upon both the Greek and Roman segments of the Church (Pelikan, 14.1000).

Ironically, almost everyone participating in this today, will identify themselves as a Christian (statistically speaking). Protestantism opened the door for anyone to design their own Christianity- and be saved in the process. You've destroyed every sacrament the Apostles have given us, beginning with Baptism. Marriage is not a sacred union anymore because of you guys.

Don't be so naive.

There are homosexual Catholics, whether you like it or not. Otherwise the "Holy See" wouldn't have to proclaim their support of "decriminalizing" it.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homosexuality_an...

"The Holy See's representative to the United Nations offices in that city, Archbishop Silvano Maria Tomasi, stated: "A state should never punish a person, or deprive a person of the enjoyment of any human right, based just on the person's feelings and thoughts, including sexual thoughts and feelings. But states can, and must, regulate behaviors, including various sexual behaviors. Throughout the world, there is a consensus between societies that certain kinds of sexual behaviors must be forbidden by law. Pedophilia and incest are two examples.""

As someone who is catholic and was raised in the faith, I find this truly offensive that the Pope would make a statement like this. It is making me seriously consider leaving the church. As long as popele believe in God and the holy trinity, why does it matter whether they believe as catholics, methodists, lutherans, etc? I think Benedict has gone too far with this statement and I do believe it is going to hurt the catholic church in the long run.

Hold on just a moment

Being handicap does not define ones I.Q.

Just because a man makes a typographical error ( because his hands have

been injured. or he is limited in the use of his hands by infirmity.)

does not mean he is ignorant, or illiterate..

I don't boast of a high I.Q. BUT I AM SMART ENOUGHT TO BELIEVE GOD,

AND PREPARE MY SOUL FOR ETERNITY.

THE BIBLE SAYS...

Psa_14:1 A Psalm of David.

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

Pro_12:15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.

Psa_119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

Pro_4:5 Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.

Pro_4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

Pro_16:16 How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!

Question...

WHY IS IT THAT YOU TAKE THE WORD OF ONE MAN (THOMAS) AS WITNESS TO WHAT JESUS SAID..AND DID

THERE IS NOT A COURT IN THE LAND THAT WILL CONVICT A MAN AT THE WORD OF ONE WITNESS..

Deu_19:15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.

THE BIBLE requires/PROVIDES ...TWO OTHERS ...MATTHEW AND JOHN...THAT

WERE WITH JESUS in his ministry HERE ON EARTH...

THEREFORE IT IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY FOR US TO PUT ALL THEIR

ACCOUNTS/what they witnessed... OF WHAT JESUS SAID AND DID)...

together to conclude what is truth.

As I said your understanding is grossly inadequate..

**********
Your view of Protestant Christians is very limited and judgmental. Most of the Protestant Christians that I know/have known are SAINTS, and the rest of them are working at it. They have not encouraged today's 'culture rot'.

Actually, mainline Protestants have required their followers to make an effort to live holy. Cursing, drunkenness, and other such vileness are things that we have avoided. We know that God will forgive us when we falter, IF we repent. We are not spoiled by thinking that we can repeatedly confess what we want to, to a man. Nor are we taught that we can abandon a marriage if our 'church' tells us that we were never really married BY THE CC.(This destroys respectability for marriage as much as anything can.)

It would be better if Catholics worked toward their own holiness, rather than accusing Protestants of causing the sins of the world. Catholics seem to feel that they can do the same things that the world does, as long as they 'confess' to a priest.

The 'churches' that have approved stupid sex sins are NOT mainline Protestants.

The attitude that faith needed defending is what caused all the religious wars.

"How DARE you insult my faith in MY god!"

Yet those in religion thought nothing of killing people who had faith in the idea that there was no god.

Did you expect the ex-Jew Catholics to write that the Jews HAD lived up to the god's expectations and that the Jews were his chosen few?

How could the ex-Jew Catholics start a new religion on THAT premise?

It would have died in the water.

They had to defame the Jews to pretend that the Catholics were god's NEW chosen few.

Jud 1:14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,

Jud 1:15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

Jud 1:16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage.

Jud 1:17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Jud 1:18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.

Jud 1:19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.

The Bible contains less than six of the original 13 Apostles - and that would be pushing the limit.

What's even more sillier - you'll quote a passage from Deut, but object to stoning homosexuals to death, "God's law" that directs so-called "Christians" to abide by the "truth". Yet you don't.
