One time, I did ask our church to donate some money for a young man who was riding a horse, going to the state of Washington, where he wanted to be buried. he was dying of cancer caused by agent Orange.
there are not many who are in this HOLINESS WALK for money.
Your avatar "atemcowboy" doesn't quite have the ring of a serious preacher such as Jerry Falwell who had such charm he "almost" converted the owner of the pornographic Hustler magazine empire Larry Flynt to follow him.

Jerry Falwell could placate those in religion whose desire it was to see evil in others and holiness in their selves.

I found his preaching to be arrogant, ridiculous and extremely self-serving.

How many times do we Catholics have to say,'We sinned. Church members sinned. Bishops and Priest sinned"
I don't get your strategy, Rose.
Every member of the Catholic faith who's sinned has broken Catholic teachings. Catholic teachings are protected from error. The moment a Bishop said,'lets torture this guy', he violated Catholic teaching.
What is it you want with us? You know dang well, you've got no case in being Protestant, so you all need to divert to medieval sins by the Church or a sex abuse scandal. Then you blow it up to make it seem like a damning massive situation that somehow debunks Catholicism- even though the guilty parties broke from the teachings of the faith the moment they sinned.
As I've said before, if someone is keeping a 'sin count' or 'body count' then Protestantism took the blue ribbon as you guys far out did Catholics in atrocities committed towards your fellow man.
Clay,I can understand your point,and agree with you about the fact that you present day Catholics should not bear the brunt of shame for those who sinned terribly in the past.Do not agree with your last sentence about Prots and the blue ribbon for being the worst perpetrators of atrocities.Sorry but Roman Catholicism beats all other Christian persuasion as to atrocities in the far past,and even during World War 2. So I would agree with you that we really harp on your past sins.The very nature of Jesus Christ is to forgive,as He has covered all sins with His precious Blood.

No Christians can boast about their accomplishments,or denominations or churches.IT is only by grace that we achieve anything for the Master,The Lord Jesus Christ.

BESIDES it is important to realize that since it is the GRACE of our Father in heaven by which we are saved,than what works we do to fulfill all righteousness,can only be made valid by the GRACE of the Father.The works we all do post being saved by grace,are inspired by the Holy Spirit,therefore those acts do not insure our salvation,but what they do is prove to a dying world that GOD is truly working in and through US.That is cross-the board regardless of affiliation.

So all this tripe about what church or denomination is better is T R I P E,to the max.May God forgive us all for not giving HIM the glory."I can do nothing without Christ." IT is the Lord Jesus who is the main focus when it concerns any Christian.Our Persuasions do not give us the assurance of our salvation,only the WORD,and the Holy Spirit within us bears witness to our spirit that we belong to Christ.

THE STRUCTURE OF THE

CATHOLIC CHURCH

Jesus chose the apostles to be the earthly leaders of the Church. He gave them his own authority to teach and to govern—not as dictators, but as loving pastors and fathers. That is why Catholics

call their spiritual leaders "father." In doing so

we follow Paul’s example: "I became your father in

Jesus Christ through the gospel" (1 Cor. 4:15).

The apostles, fulfilling Jesus’ will, ordained bishops, priests, and deacons and thus handed on their apostolic ministry to them—the fullest degree of ordination to the bishops, lesser degrees to the priests and deacons.

The Pope and Bishops

Jesus gave Peter special authority among the apostles (John 21:15–17) and signified this by changing his name from Simon to Peter, which means "rock" (John 1:42). He said Peter was to be the rock on which he would build his Church (Matt. 16:18).

In Aramaic, the language Jesus spoke, Simon’s new name was Kepha (which means a massive rock). Later this name was translated into Greek as Petros (John 1:42) and into English as Peter. Christ gave

Peter alone the "keys of the kingdom" (Matt.

16:19) and promised that Peter’s decisions would

be binding in heaven. He also gave similar power

to the other apostles (Matt. 18:18), but only

Peter was given the keys, symbols of his authority

to rule the Church on earth in Jesus’ absence.

Christ, the Good Shepherd, called Peter to be the

chief shepherd of his Church (John 21:15–17). He

gave Peter the task of strengthening the other

apostles in their faith, ensuring that they taught

only what was true (Luke 22:31–32). Peter led the

Church in proclaiming the gospel and making decisions (Acts 2:1– 41, 15:7–12).

Early Christian writings tell us that Peter’s

successors, the bishops of Rome (who from the

earliest times have been called by the

affectionate title of "pope," which means "papa"), continued to exercise Peter’s ministry in the Church.

The pope is the successor to Peter as bishop of Rome. The world’s other bishops are successors to the apostles in general.

Is not belonging to your religion ... a major flaw ... according to you???
You can waste our time believing that Jesus Christ and God the Father,and the Holy Spirit are a religion.That is your problem not mine June.You see June that the reality of their Existence nullifies all speculation that religion conjures up about THEM.I do not have a religion,I have a relationship with the Triune God,Father,Son and Holy Spirit.There is no speculation on my part that they truly exist.I know H E does,One God forever and ever.I read the Word,and I trust in the Lord.I pray daily and seek His cousel and love,and He takes care of me.I struggle just like everyone else,and have had many doubts.

There were times when I wanted to forsake believing altogether,but when I chose to follow Christ,I have never been disappointed.Being subject to denominational and church practices do bring me to the reality at times that MEN and women do in fact hinder at times perhaps my own freedom in Christ.However I know the difference,and KNOW when to submit to what is of the "CHURCH"as it were and of God.

Many believers do not know the difference,so they often sound like robots who are programmed.The majority of believers I know are not like that. RELIGION can oppress people,as we see so many human beings who have suffered various things when they blindly become radical or fanatical about their particular religion.

June there is much to be said.You are more narrow in your opinion than I have ever seen about believers in their relationship to religion as a whole.

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written.

My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short – enjoy it.

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye, but don't worry, God never blinks.

16.. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful. Clutter weighs you down in many ways.

18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

19.. It's never too late to be happy. But it’s all up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

No Pad, Jesus didn't redeem me. Everything I've done in this world, was done because I chose to do t. No religion, "God" or Jesus was involved in those actions.
Please stop being silly thinking that they do.
But before we jump the gun, please post at least five things that you have done that actually was done by Jesus, "God" or religion?
I will not argue what you do or do not do.Silly thinking? Well that is your opinion!I know what I have experienced in my life,and frankly what you perceive it to be or not to be does not place me in subjection to your opinion.

If and when things were done in response to any inspiration I might have responded to,both past and present,I really do not believe you will be able to evaluate whether or not God had a part in them or if I was doing that without His Help.

Knowing my weaknesses and attitudes both past and present,there is no doubt in my mind that God gave me at times His boost to carry out doing what was right,and helpful to others.Fellow workers have commented to me over the years that they appreciated my capacity for working not only within my own boundaries,but to the extent that others were also helped.I showed a respect that even at one point a Muslim woman one time told me she thought for sure I must be a true Christian.It was the grace of God that was in me,because I know at times I am not capable of doing certain things.But He is an enabler.

Often NASL it is what is said and asserted by others that proves God is working,because we may succumb to our basic instincts,when with God we have to rely on His strength.

I do not doubt you are a caring person,and believe me it is not my place to evaluate or judge whatever it is you do or do not do!

That's what I believe also ..

And I don't believe for one second that Catholics are responsible for history..I guess it has bothered me that it has never been
taught as ..wasn't taught to me for sure ..as a lesson on growth and humility .

John Paul 're u ed with his apologies..But do many CATHOLICS try to deny it ..

It's like if we in America don't learn about the din of slavery .

If we don't know our past ..how can we avoid it .

But I for one will not post on it again..

Tried to make the point all POPES not Godly men..
And no MAN is infallible .
Can lead to deception .in the future to believe in a human .

Sure He would...

And [the angel Gabriel sent by God] came to [Mary] and said,

"Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you!"
But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and considered in her mind what sort of greeting this might be.
And the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God." (Luke 1:28-30)
