Can you show me where the Cardinals stated that they themselves ONLY decided on voting for Pope John Ist? If what you claim is true, doesn't that show that all the VOTING cardinals committed sin by not allowing the holy spirit to guide them in their decision making as per the policies of the roman catholic church?
Is the holy spirit responsible for the death of John Paul Ist?
Is that what you are saying?
Jehovah gets credit from the followers as performing all the good deeds.

The devil gets blamed for all the evil.

Yet ... according to the theology ... Jehovah CREATED evil.

If only it didn't cause so much bloodshed ... the contradictions concerning dogma would be quite humorous indeed.

Statements like this are the key to the the inhuman history of the human race. It is the one-size-fits-all justification for genocide. The radical Muslims say the same thing and we have global terrorist. The Nazis used it to murder Jews and anybody else they saw fit to kill. The Catholics used it in the crusades and for several other atrocities over the centuries including this one. Want to start a war. This is how you do it.

Claypool says........I say the pill, condoms, and surgery are deliberate attempts to prevent life from entering the world WHILE you are having sex. That's a sin.
Michael says.......being told NOT TO HAVE SEX is also a form to prevent life from starting.
If god created everything, why is it OK for you to eat chicken eggs instead of letting the eggs hatch into baby chicks? Aren't they forms of life terminated?
----------
An unfertilized chicken egg will NEVER make a chicken.
Unfertilized human eggs will not make humans.
A well-known Russian writer said that a man should love his wife enough NOT to burden her with eternal pregnancy.(LOVE is the key.) Bearing children is a wonderful thing...but when men use sex solely for gratification, with no thought of the health of the woman, or her children, it is no longer LOVE/intimacy. The writer suggested that the man discipline himself, and be considerate of the woman's health.
This practically eliminates the need for contraception and/or abortion.(Cuts out a lot of 'headaches' and unhappy women, too.)

America did not start wars in other countries...she went to the aid of Europe when they were being destroyed by Hitler. She went to the aid of Asian countries that were being attacked by communism.

She lost out in Viet Nam because of communist propaganda that stirred American youth to protest against her. Russia paid over a Billion dollars to produce that propaganda in America.

Our current administration is dragging out the war in Afghanistan for some reasons I will not post at this time. It is costing us some good men and women. But the jihadists started that conflict; it needs to be closed out.

John Paul II was the one that was supposed to be elected. Cardinal Wotija was polish, the Roman curia was hesitant to elect him the first time around- even though everyone in the conclave knew it - they opted for the Italian John I. Although John I was by all accounts was a righteous man, the conclave chose him because they didn't let the Lord decide. They went with their political gut feeling. When he died after 30 days, everyone knew they went against the Spirit and immediately elected arguably the best Pope since St. Peter. Pope John Paul II was born to lead at that moment in time. God knew it but stubborn men in the conclave didn't.
That's from a great book on my book shelf that I can't remember the title of. Written by a Vatican insider at the time. The Holy Spirit DID elect JP II and thats the unanimous testimony of those who participated in the election
I believe that is,possible .

Can you understand at all how politics has influenced the Church ..I mean REALLY..You think the HOLY Spirit picked that Borgia guy ..And some of the others .

Power corrupts ..And this is,one reason why people don t believe in APOSTOLIC succession from Peter ....among other things ..

If Jesus wanted PETER AS A,POPE ..IF ..how many other POPES,did the HOLY SPIRIT annoint.

I think Pope John Paul was great ..I like this new POPE ..I'm sure they are spiritually led .

But Clay ..he more I learn. I cannot see PETER coming back today and seeing THE VATICAN. with all it riches and power as HIS HOME ..

YOUR chur h has done wonderful good in the world ...But also bad ..

I don't think Jesus wanted a,Temple and High priest ..I really don't .

The early settlers here brought Jesus,with them in their endeavors ..HIS WORD...
we're they all really Godly men.????
NO ..But neither were all of your clergy .....

God has,used,many to spread the,GOOD NEWS,...including but NOT restricted to your,Church ..

Hey I was,taught same,as you ...the CHURCH was,right ..in all things,..

And yet y our sainted,John Paul ..to his,everlasting credit and I'm sure inspired by testimony Holy Spirit ...apologized to many .

Your Church is NO MORE the,repository of Kingly power it was,once ..
Has,come out against some,of the,Evil in the world ..

ALL SIN from.the,BORGIAS to the,worst in the,Protestant CHURCHES
Satisfies the purposes of the,EVIL ONE,..shaking faith in GOD .

NOT that we,don't all have human inclination..

I'm sure there will be sin in the MILLENIUM...when he is,in chains,...

Your teAchings,have made you see,non CATHOLICs as the cause of evil ..

THey ate,not unless they fir get their own bible teAchings,..which has happened,..

Then just have surgery to prevent future babies. You guys don't need to worry about popping a pill or throwing on a blanket. Just have the surgery. Its easy. I almost had it done. My friends said it didn't hurt and it only took a couple minutes. Snip. Woman can get their tubes tide, then you can have all the sex not want and not worry about the trouble.

----------

You make it sound so simple. Just have your body parts cut off so you can't fulfill "be fruitful and multiply". Or live in a pornographic world, and destroy your wife's health.

You COULD just discipline yourself, and save women's and babies lives...

The Authoritative Church
One of the major objections to the claims that the Church makes regarding herself is that she alone has authority to interpret God's word in the Bible, and indeed to formally what the Christian religion is when it is revealed to her by the Holy Spirit. Many people who react badly to this are simply having a problem with any form of authority, and consider that there is an invisible church rather than the visible one Christ actually founded.
However, Scripture is clear that the Church has authority – in Matthew 28:18-20 Jesus delegates His power to the apostles. The authority to perform specific acts is given in other passages – John 20:23 (the power to forgive sin), I Corinthians 11:23-24 (the power to offer sacrifice, the Eucharist), Luke 10:16 (the power to speak with Christ's voice), Matthew 18:18 (the power to legislate) and Matthew 18:17 (the power to discipline).
From a perspective of pure common sense and logic, what would be the point of founding a Church (which Christ clearly wanted to do) without giving her authority? If the Church has no power, what what is she? She is simply a collection of believers with no power to enforce laws or discipline those who are dissident – anyone could claim to be a member of her even if they denied all the tenets of her laws and beliefs! Organizations logically require authority over their members and authority to determine what the criteria for membership are; otherwise they are not organizations at all, but simply a label without a clear definition. The spoken and stated biblical words of Jesus Christ are clear and concise regarding His visible, heirarchical and authoritative Church. Pauls letter to Timothy leaves no doubt as to Jesus' Universal authoritative Church when he calls, THE CHURCH (not the bible alone) the pillar, pinnacle and foundation of the TRUTH.
There is no power in your catlick denomination...there is power only in the blood of Christ...

FEAR is the in all the Abrahamic and previous religions.

Your dogmas teach that if I don't follow the one-god Jehovah's commands and LOVE him, he will REJECT me in the supposed hereafter.

You want me to pretend I love such a horrific image???

I think NOT!!!

I'd rather worship a squirrel. At least the squirrel has a good reason to love nuts. The nuts fill its stomach with food, rather than filling its brain with mythical lies!!!

They won't even admit to their selves that within the theology they are supposed to be worshipping Jehovah ... not the watered down word of plain old god. After all ... that could be one of those other ancient gods that receive their messages.

Rumor has it that Jehovah is very insulted by Christian and Muslim behavior in not using his PROPER name.

But they keep insisting on sinning, which in turn could be tempting his evil nature.
