How silly! Of course they were Catholics.

You want to claim your church is holy, when history bespeaks of vicious brutality all the way through!

From the book … Pearl S. Buck—My Several Worlds … published 1954.

Infant damnation, a horrid idea from which I am happy to say all Christians have now recovered, was nevertheless in those days still part of the normal creed. My mother, having lost four beautiful little children, was raised to fury at the very mention of any child descending to hell.

Aren't we all projecting our beliefs on others???

There are more claims of religious truth on these threads than can be accounted for ... and yet ... none of you agree.

Maybe some day you will tune in to the idea that your theologians WANT you to keep the fight going, as they depend on it for their incomes.

The Orthodox were the first to break off from the Ctholic Church and the first ones to think about going back. Yes, your Church is negotiating

Imagine how the parents felt when they believed their babies and members of families that committed suicide, were burning in hell!!!

While there are many people in the Roman Catholic Church who are REAL christians, the REALITY of the matter is that Satan the Wicked One is dominating the hearts and minds of many a pedophile at the Vatican.

At times it appears that you are answering a completely different post. First this is not preaching. It is not a sermon. It is apologetics. If someone was preaching you need to post to them.

You always have this radio playing in your head that claims that another poster is favoring self and saying others are are rejeced. Change the station. A little Motown would be nice.

Now why would I put more credence in John of the Cross than June of the Crossed Eyes?

In the first place, John was clearly influenced by the Bible. Scriptural images are common in both his poems and prose—in total, there are 1,583 explicit and 115 implicit quotations from the Bible in his works

Both his poetry and his studies on the growth of the soul are considered the summit of mystical Spanish literature and one of the peaks of all Spanish literature

In Salamanca, where he studied theology and philosophy at the prestigious University there (at the time one of the four biggest in Europe, alongside Paris, Oxford and Bologna) and at the Colegio de San Andrés

St. John of the Cross is considered one of the foremost poets in the Spanish language. Although his complete poems add up to fewer than 2500 verses, two of them — the Spiritual Canticle and the Dark Night of the Soul — are widely considered masterpieces of Spanish poetry, both for their formal stylistic point of view and their rich symbolism and imagery

And Jesus said in John 6:47-59 "Unless you eat my body (which is REAL FOOD) and drink my blood (which is REAL DRINK), you CANNOT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE"!!!! I/we as Catholics ALL KNOW, follow and adhere to your Protestant "bible waiving" verses that you "fundies" keep "pyramiding and quoting". TRUE CHRISTIANITY is based upon TRUE CHURCH HISTORY historical facts and the TRUE INTERPRETATION of the Bible along with the TRUE TEACHINGS OF Jesus Christ in and through HIS One True Universal Catholic Church..It has absolutely (nothing to do) with. your bible only (burger flip) a (cafeteria style-pick and choose selection) of the verses that fit the Protestant (anti-catholic agenda. Discarding, omitting and rejecting the "rest of the TRUTH bible" is necessary for you "fundies" because it would "totally undermine" your bible only (man-made) beliefs, which 9on their own) have absolutely no biblical or historical truth to back it up--- ANYWAY!!!
You are a liar....your pope approved Bible says in Mt 16:18 "church" means any congregation that follows the teachings of Christ...

The National Council of Churches say you are lying....they say the Catholic denomination is the largest in the USA...Christ built no denomination..

The Bible says you are lying...Christ referred not to any Catholic churches in Rev...because there were none...

<quoted text>Those Catholics are committing a mortal sin. Yes, they are. Do you remember what a mortal sin is? Those pro aborts were laughing at you , you are so naivete that they really took advantage of you and used you to upset the pro life posters. You willingly turned your back on Jesus. You refuse to receive the Eucharist , you were taught that the Eucharist is Jesus. Now don't say you weren't taught that. How could you refuse to receive Him? You are so sensitive when someone disagrees with you that you play a little game and try to get others to report the person who *hates* you, no one really hates you rose by the way.
If they atrxcommitting sin..That is between them and God .

I do not play games ..

I don't get people to do anything . You don't post in a vacuum ..

And I don't play games ...
People have tried speaking to you very nicely and sincerely..

I've told you and I try very hard to be forgiving .I pray that you find Peace in your life

I've asked you many times . Stop making disagreements personal .

Many others have done thE same ...asked you to stop

When I was,here ..when I was gone for two years ...same thing ..You just had different people to focus on..
.now it's me ..

We disagree ...so do Many people Here and on other threads ...yet they usually don't post as you do ..nor follow or harass others .

Find something to focus on besides me ..please ..give it as penance or something the hatred you seem to have for me ...give it to God ..
Rather than acting on it ..

Peace

The Catholic Church is the true church established by our Lord Jesus Christ in the year 33 upon Saint Peter's faith. Those who have searched with sincerity of heart have returned to the church.
The Catholic church is not just a Christian denomination, but it is the original pre-denominational church. And the word "Catholic" means "Universal", for those who don't know.
*Jesus Christ Established a Visible Church On Earth*
Every Christian believes that Jesus Christ established and sustains a community of faith, hope and love for all believers. This community we call His Church. The Church that Christ founded is the Catholic Church which has a formal earthly structure established by Christ and which continues under His authority and protection.
In the Old Testament we see God's continual involvement in the lives of the Israelites through appointed prophets. God delivered, instructed and admonished the Israelites. He made His motions in a visible, specific and formal way. He always did so through human hands, mouths, feet, minds and wills. God established a law and a means for executing it.
In concert with His redemptive act, Jesus did three things that established the framework of His Church. First, He chose humans to carry out His work. He appointed Peter to be the visible head of the Church. Jesus said to Peter, "You are Rock and on this rock I will build my Church." (Matthew 16: 18) Jesus said "build," as in to create a structure. Jesus built His structure on specifically chosen human beings Peter and the apostles.
Second, Jesus gave Peter and the apostles the power and authority to carry out His work. "Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven."(Matthew 16:19; 18:18) "Receive the Holy Spirit, whose sins you forgive, they are forgiven, whose sins you retain, they are retained."(John 20:23)
The Early Church was structured in a hierarchical, authoritative and visible and Jesus initiated it in Matthew 16:31-21
You are a liar....your pope approved Bible says in Mt 16:18 "church" means any congregation that follows the teachings of Christ...

The National Council of Churches say you are lying....they say the Catholic denomination is the largest in the USA...Christ built no denomination..

The Bible says you are lying...Christ referred not to any Catholic churches in Rev...because there were none...
