Ok girls and guys some advice from a friend.
We are some people who want to help teens ..Because we have been teens ourselves ...this is from a friend of mine
Because of a lack of education on how to use them, plain and simple.
Did you know that taking certain herbal remidies can affect BC? Antibiotics can render it useless? Alchohol can do the same?
Did you know that certain lubricants can affect condoms? Or that older condoms can be less than useless?
Did you know that there are girls and women out there that think they only have to take a few BC pills to prevent pregnancy? That douching after sex will prevent pregnancy? That douching with BLEACH will prevent it?
Did you know that there are boys and men that think a baggie or saran wrap will substitue for a condom?
Did you know that getting tubes tied or vascectomy STILL carries a small risk of pregnancy?
Did you know that IDIOTS spread the MYTH that if you DONT have sex during ONLY the fertile time of the month, you can't get pregnant, when in FACT, sperm can live up to 14 days?
And this doesn't take into account all the dozens of other myths like "pulling out" works, or "you cant get pregnant the first time".
it works for women and men that use it ONE HUNDRED PERCENT correctly, and even THEN stuff happens .
Theses are a bit of help ..But another friend has posted somethin g of much more use.
I myself suffered a teen pregnancy ..I gave my son for adoption it was,not easy .
Back then there were no methods of BC or sexed available .
Anyway we are hoping to help . Birth control is not what Christ wants us to use, rose. Birth control teaches people to be selfish, how to lie and not to trust and birth control such as the pill causes abortion. Rose, you are teaching immorality.
======
Leaving aside the banter that goes back and forth between posters in this forum,your post is not in that category at all. It is intended to hurt someone, to damage someone.It is a reprehensible. It is a terrible terrible sin to go for the jugular of someone's soul and try to humiliate and embarrass them. Just how important is it for you to win in a stupid blog? Does it mean so much to you that you are willing to emotionally damage a person? You think you are defending the Catholic Church this way? What a farce! What a charade!Think about the hurt you caused- the stinging pain of this person's past.Shame. Shame on you.I am no angel. But I ask that you reflect on what you did (probably at a moment of anger)ask for our Savior's forgivenss and apologize.

The Catholic Church celebrates The Day of the Pentecost after Lent annually. This is when OUR Church stated, over 2000 years ago.
It didnít show up in the 70s as you stated above.
Which one of these are you?
All seem to have started in the 20th century. On the day of the Pentecost, NO, thatís not what your history shows

Founding of the United Pentecostal Church:
In 1916, 156 ministers split from the Assemblies of God over conflicting views on the oneness of God and water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ. The UPCI was formed by the merger of the Pentecostal Church Inc. and the Pentecostal Assemblies of Jesus Christ, in 1945.

The Pentecostal Church in America
By KEVIN SACK
In 1905, when William J. Seymour attended Charles F. Parhamís Bible school in Houston, Mr. Parham required him to sit in the hallway and listen to lectures through an open door. Mr. Seymour was black, the son of former slaves, and the mores of the times in Texas dictated that he could not sit with his white counterparts.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF PENTECOSTALISM 1906
(The Three Waves)*
From the second century to the nineteenth century, there is no historical evidence that godly, orthodox believers spoke in tongues. We do have instances of tongues speaking in these centuries, but in every case the people speaking in tongues belonged to heretical groups.(See #15 in the report "The Charismatic Movement: 35 Doctrinal Issues.") From Montanus (2nd Century) to Edward Irving (19th century), instances of "tongues" within the church were never considered to be part of genuine Christianity. Also, we should note that these "heretics" who spoke in tongues were speaking some kind of emotional, nonsense gibberish and not real languages as was the case in Acts chapter 2.
In 1901 at Bethel Bible College, Topeka, Kansas, Agnes Ozman received what she called the baptism of the Spirit and spoke in "tongues." The practice then became part of the Holiness movement of the church in the United States. In 1906, tongues were spoken on Azusa Street in Los Angeles, California, and out of these two events in 1901 and 1906 grew the mainline Pentecostal denominations which are still with us today (Assemblies of God, etc.).
http://www.rapidnet.com/~jbeard/bdm/Psycholog...
The Apostolic Faith Church is a worldwide religious organization, with international headquarters in Portland, Oregon. Our roots stem from a 1906 revival on Azusa Street in Los Angeles.

And then there is Aimee,1944.

You are fallen in to the 'know-it-all' religious historians who pick up on the failures of people who fail, and use them to condemn others who are innocent.

We could write about those CC Pope's who married, and mistreated other people, or the priests who mistreated little boys. I don't happen to be like any of those you mentioned, and I hope that you are not like the ones I just mentioned.

We have tried to point out some things that the CC holds to that do not 'fit' with the Bible. Rather than discuss whether penance or other things are 'right', you try to disprove what we tell you by bringing up some failures of people that you suppose are part of us...and you missed it completely. Degrading us will never prove that 'you' are 'right' or 'best'.

Let Aimee answer to God. He is her judge...

Q.Isn't confession to a priest an option? If you're sincerely sorry for your sins and confess them in your own heart, aren't you already forgiven?
A. The power to forgive sins was one Christ gave to his apostles (Luke 10:16; 2 Cor. 5:18-20). After he rose from the dead Christ said to the apostles, "'As the Father has sent me, so I send you.' And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them,'Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained'" (John 20:22-23).
We can be truly sorry for our sins--that is essential for forgiveness--but we can't forgive our own sins. We can't absolve ourselves. That is a power reserved to God alone. Through Christ that power was conferred on his apostles and their successors, the bishops, and their helpers, the priests. Confession is not an option. It is the ordinary (normative) means through which sins are forgiven.
A power of declaring with authority the Christian terms of pardon; whose sins are remitted and whose retained? As in our daily form of absolution; and 2. A power of inflicting and remitting ecclesiastical censures? That is, of excluding from, and re-admitting into, a Christian congregation.

Q.Why do Catholics kneel during their services? This seems unnecessary. Why not just sit still and listen to the preaching of God's word?
A.If you attend a Catholic Mass you will see the first part of it consists of reading and preaching; we stand for the Gospel, but we sit for the other readings and for the preaching. The Mass is a sacrifice, and there are times--especially in the last part--when the faithful pray on their knees. Kneeling shows our humility before God.
Your question is a surprise because you probably should be asking yourself why you don't kneel in your Protestant services. Scripture suggests you should. In Ephesians 3:14 Paul says, "I kneel before the Father," and in Acts 9:40 Peter "knelt down and prayed." The Catholic habit of kneeling is consistent with Scripture and is another manifestation of the continuity between the Church of the first century and the Catholic Church of today.
More Q and A...
http://www.newadvent.org/library/almanac_this...
YOu may find this interesting.The Orthodox do kneel at times . However they do more standing during service than kneeling including durinf prayer. This is based on our savior's resurrection.Just 2 different practices.

So according to "The Word" why was Mary impregnated without consent and made to carry the fetus to full term? Sounds a lot like rape.

Could they put Satellites into orbit. Did they invent cars and trucks. Did they have cell-phones, computers, et cetera?

It seems to me about as mythological as Bigfoot, and they also have yet to find a skeleton suited to the Bigfoot myth.

So also is your intent to defame and destroy another follower of your Jesus according to your writings. You do not even follow his first two tenets. I am a heathen, and I don't even stoop to such depravity as you have. Even other christers here are becoming quite dismayed with your behavior and outright hatred...I know I am.
I am beginning to believe you are nothing more than a dissembler...here to discredit the religion you say you represent.
Children?
Your "holy" Mary was 12 years old when she conceived. Seems your deity didn't consider her a "child".
I have to wonder just what your agenda here is now.

Observe this scam of mortal men supposedly uncovering the skeleton of a GIANT.

The discovery was made by the Aramco Exploration team. As God states in the Quran that He had created people of phenomenal size the like of which He has not created since. These were the people of Aad where Prophet Hud was sent. They were very tall, big, and very powerful, such that they could put their arms around a tree trunk and uproot it. Later these people, who were given all the power, turned against God and the Prophet and transgressed beyond all boundaries set by God. As a result they were destroyed.
