I'm making it clear that the pope did not approve the use of condoms as a means of birth control, regardless of the circumstances. Your posts seem to imply you think he is.

Most reasonably sane people understand, when you use a condom, if for the protection against any type of VD, HIV, the flu, ingrown toenails, it also prevents pregnancies...which is the act of birth control!!!!

It does not have a dial with settings for only VD HIV flu ingrown toenails protection, as well as, for only birth control.

Analogue: When you fire a 12 gauge shotgun loaded with buckshot into the head of a person, he is dead as a door nail...don't matter if you only intended to scare him!!!!

I said,I believe in contraception ..And,also snared,Ox ..

These,people,are potentially killing each other . Make or female
Also said,I KNOW CATHOLICS. don t agree,..so I never said the POPE ,
Agreed with me ..

As,ONLY personal opinion ...I also think contraception ..can and dies,prevent abortion ....much worse,IMO...
Kills,babies and,souls,

And I'd not be surprised if this Pope agrees,..on that we,shall see,..

But neither Nick or I said he POPE was,condoning anything

While I know this is off-topic for this forum, Rose, I believe that you frequent an abortion forum on topix and am wondering if you're aware of the fact that many contraceptives are abortifacients? They alter the lining of the uterus thereby preventing implantation of the fertilized egg (a baby). They actually cause an abortion. And I'm not talking about the morning after pill either. Don't be so quick to approve of contraception.
And here we go ..Going to say this,once
You want to talk abortion go there

Iud. Can do that ..I thunk the are bad

Pill STOPS,OVULATION ..no egg no baby ..a whole lot of CATHOLUCS use theme

Makes he body think your pregnant ..do you DOn't get a new egg .
If it fails,you may get pregnant which your body thinks you are ..

No egg no baby no abortion

Condoms ..no sperm..no baby ..no abortion ..if it fails pregnant ..

Neither of the last two causes abortion...

And using them most definitely prevents many pregnancies that result in abortion .

I didn't give you any "extended" listing of any sort.
Please stop lying about me and promoting hatred.
The "list" is in the sources you gave me. Obviously you NEVER read any of them, since you don't have any idea as to what I am referring to. So, please stop playing youranti-catholic games with me New Age! I DID read both of the (below sources) that you posted and (ADDITIONALLY) researched the names, background and the "personal opinions" that these "so-called bible experts" editorialized

http//www.earlychristianwritin gs.com
http//www.earlychristianwritin gs.com/acts.ht

Your "one sided modernistic author and writer sources, were obviously ALL "born yesterday"....... EVERY ONE of these authors and writer who consider themselves to be biblical experts including: Udo Schnelle, Hans Conzelmann, Joseph Fitzmyer, F.F. Bruce, Echhard Plumacher, Helmet Koester, Steven Davies, Burton Mack, Raymond Brown, Ben Witherington ----EVERY ONE OF THEM are pro-protestant, bible only, anti-catholic writers and authors who even go so far as to write papers on "Debunking Christianity"...... ALL of these (enlightened bible interpreters) wrote from (1992-1998). Obviously, you just "threw these sources out" without reading them, since you don't seem to know ANYTHING about what I am referring to!! Again--- we, as Catholics (all know) where you are coming from and we know that they are attempting to "undermine and debunk the TRUTH of TRUE CHURCH History and the TRUE INTERPRETATION of the Bible. You are as "oblivious to the TRUTH as ever, which is "no surprise to ANY of us Catholics

'Reasonably sane people' don't have to be protected against ANY type of sexually transmitted disease.
One man/one woman marriage is not troubled by STD's. "Thou shalt not commit adultery", is a great STD preventative.

The same bible interpretation that you twist, manipulate, and have distorted the meaning since the Reformation to your own demise and destruction. Since you have "little or nothing" to back up your bible only (contradicting and inconsistent) beliefs,(burger flipping) bible verses,(one after the other), then adding your own (anti-catholic) interpretation to them is the ONLY thing you have that keeps your "bible only boat" from sinking and in a constant spin, with confusion chaos and contradiction with your other 42,000 "fundies" (going around and around in circles). After 35 years, as a bible only Protestant,....(THANKFULLY) Our Lord Jesus Christ, with the leading of the Holy Spirit, led me out of this (half-truth) Christianity, into the FULLNESS of the FAITH and the FULLNESS of the TRUTH, in Jesus Christ, in and through HIS One True Apostolic Catholic Church. Daily Prayers for you and Kay Marie!!!

I don't need to say anything else (other than)

i AGREE THAT YOU DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY...

AND YOU MIGHT AS WELL HAVE LEFT OUT THE "OTHER THAN"

i WILL SAY AS i HAVE SAID BEFORE...

IF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IS ...THE ONLY ..CHURCH THAT REPRESENTS GOD HERE ON EARTH...

WE ARE ALL HEADED FOR HELL IN A HAND BASKET...

I HAVE MORE FAITH IN GOD.... HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS....

HIS HOLINESS AND PURITY ...

THAN TO BELIEVE OR EVEN ENTERTAIN THE FABLE

THAT HE WOULD CHANG HIS MIND ...

AND APPROVE THE HEATHEN SINS

THAT HE HATED

IN THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.

IT WOULD BE LUDICROUSNESS TO THINK THAT THOSE THAT THUMB THEIR NOSES IN

HIS FACE WOULD BE CHOSEN

AS HIS ONE AND ONLY TRUE APOSTOLIC CHURCH...

AS FOR ME I WILL I WILL BE OBEDIENT TO HIS WORD THAT SAYS

2Co 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

2Co 6:15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

2Co 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols?

for ye are the temple of the living God;

as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and

walk in them; and I will be their God, and

they shall be my people.

THIS IS WHAT I RECOMMEND TO YOU AND OTHER ROMAN CATHOLICS...

2Co 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and

touch not the unclean thing; and

I will receive you,

you did fine, dont let her keep you from making a statement as to how God Saved you and then you were Baptized.

if there is no Repentance then a person goes down a dry sinner and comes up a wet sinner.

people like her, Anthony and hojo et al have no testimony, which is why they must attack yours and ours.

REPENT.(And be baptized ). the Holy Ghost doesn't come to any person when they get baptized and why people cant understand this is beyond me. Not one person in the NT ever received the Holy Ghost when they were Baptized. the men of Ephesus were Baptized in water, however they had not received the Holy Ghost, and on the same line, they did follow Jesus and were believers(pay attention Hank) but even that didn't give them the Holy Ghost.

to receive that Blessing, a person has to sell out completely. the Sacrifice was not half heartedly, so why should it be given to people that don't want to go all the Way. God wants and desires 100% from us which is what He gave to us.

I don't have a question. You stated that the sacrament of Baptism does not remit sin and I showed you from Scripture that, indeed, it does. I mean, you're the one who's sola scriptura, right? If you don't want to respond, that's fine.

Can YOU WASH AWAY YOUR SIN? You can rinse a pot that has been scoured...but you cannot RINSE away the soil from one that has not.
Water baptism is ALWAYS performed on a REPENTANT person...the 'repenting' brings God's forgiveness (cleansing, scouring) without which a dunking in water does nothing. Heathen get in water many times, but it does not remove their sin.

Yes, every New Testament Apostle instructs to be baptized...but only when the heart is circumcised by repentance. Baptism is necessary, but in every case the scripture says, "repent, AND (then) be baptized".

Philip introduced Jesus to the Ethiopian...who then asked to be baptized. Peter preached Jesus to the house of Cornelius, which were then baptized. Paul led the jailor to Christ...then baptized him and his family. They all 'believed', THEN were baptized.

Get wisdom...but with all thy getting, get UNDERSTANDING. Read not only what the Apostles say...but read HOW they did it.

Acts 2:38. Repent and be baptized.

Repent means to change your outlook or have a change of heart or reverse the direction of your life. These do not happen when we are baptized....ask Simon the Scorcer

When you have time look at Acts 5:31. 10:43. 13:38 26:18………Peter never mentions baptism for forgiveness of sins. So it's 1 of 2 things. Peter contradicts himself(which I doubt) or Catholics are lost.

I appreciate your reply, Kay, but all of Christendom baptized their babies until fairly recently. Don't forget, the disciples were preaching to adults. There is nothing in scripture to indicate that children are excepted; on the contrary, there is everything that points to the necessity of baptism for everyone due to its salvific nature (remission of sin).
