***What say yu about the other Catholic Church...The Ortherdox branch of the Catholic Church?
What separates the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church is not only the Primacy of the Pope also known as the Infallibility, but also the following innovations of the Roman Catholic Church: The Procession of the Holy Spirit. Purgatory and indulgences. The Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary. Assumption of the Virgin Mary. Invocation of the epiclesis. Unleavened Bread. Holy Communion. Divorce. Clergy's Martal Status. The Orthodox claim in being the 1st Church is historically (untrue) because they refuse to accept the Primacy of the Pope. Since the 1st Pope was Peter, the Catholic Church was the only Church that recognized his primacy. and the Orthodox Church was merely a branch of the Catholic Church from the very beginning of the Church!

As defined today by the Roman Catholic Sect in Rome the Papacy did not begin until approximately the 10th century and even then the Papacy Changed. But in Fabians day there was no Pope of Popes in the least. No Pope in any other Christian church, from Jerusalem to Corinth to Ephesus to Hippo was in sub mission to Fabian they were equals.
In the 3rd Centuries their were many popes, remember the same word translated for Bishop in the english is translated pope.
You can try as you might to re-write history, very common in the RCC and the forgeries of the RCC are well known but history does not bear out the RCC's claims.
That which Rome today calls their Popes far years gone by were Bishops of many Bishops all equal all having one vote at the early church councils.
That is simple history that not even Romes historians will deny publicly as the facts of history show.
To the point even Romes historians come up with wild and new concepts like the Acorn theory the the Papacy was a seed in the 1st century that grew into an Oak tree in the 10th century.
Sad and Laughable that RC's like star and yourself put your heads in the sand and drink the koolaid .
Your quote is quite interesting as in context it implies Rome had many Popes Bishops alive at the same time not ONE.
I thought that the,idea,of ONE,bishop over all was,the cause if he Schism in 1054
Until.when all the bishops had an Equal rank ...was,my understanding??

Why do Protestants become Catholic?
As a convert it from Protestantism to Catholicism, it was a matter of authority--who has it and why. That may seem rather dry reasoning, but it wasn't for me. When I was a Pentecostalist I lived by the whim of my pastor. Whatever he taught us we believed even though he had no more authority to do that than any other man on the street. He may have had more Bible study, but understood from a very restricted point of view that ignored centuries of history as well as the Church Fathers of the first centuries. And this lack of authority led to inaccurate and even damaging beliefs.

If only the truth can set us free then I think we have the right to have the truth--the whole truth and not just what a Protestant denomination wants to accept of what was taught by the Church Christ himself founded--the Catholic Church. Nor skewed beliefs made up by men who oppose the Church merely because it teaches what they don't want to believe, even though Jesus himself gave the Church the full authority to discern what is true teaching from what isn't.

Tolkien a Roman Catholic was a great influence that Lead Lewis out of Atheism to Christianity, as they worked together studied together at Oxford I believe. They were great friends, after Tolkien wrote Lord of the rings he encouraged Lewis to write books for his children and thus influenced the Lion the witch the wardrobe
He was never a RC and Tolkien was disappointed when C.S. Lewis came to his conclusion the RCC was not the one true church and rejected it as such.
you and rose are right, C S Lewis wasn't Catholic. He'd been raised in northern Ireland by .bigots like you. He brought that bigotry over to England but gradually began to see the lies of Protestantism and nothing but good things to say about Catholicism towards the end of his life.

A Jehovah's Witness was at my door yesterday.

He no-doubt prays for what he believes is YOUR spiritual blindness.

His little pamphlet reads "Jehovah hates death, He longs to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again."

It seems that unless YOU become a Jehovah's Witness, YOU are doomed, as YOU are NOT in Jehovah's memory.

Silly people do all the talking for their own images of gods that live as fantasy ... ONLY in their own imaginations.

Forum are all faith-based. You have faith in your idea that other people are "projecting" and when you explain your ideas, you never "project."

I have faith that religion is all based on fantasy and you have faith that yours is the REAL-deal while only other religions are based on fantasy.

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.
Your every post defends your own religion as truth and puts down other religions as false.

Concerning religion, apologetics is simply another term for defending and sermonizing your own dogmas as being based on truth.

I don't believe that humans sin against the will of a god, as I don't believe in the existence of any of those human-created images of gods whatsoever.

I suggest it's not polite of you to insinuate that I am a sinner, just because you believe that YOU are a sinner.

If you have respect for others, you will keep your personalized sermons in your own head.

Thank you for your effort and compassion Nick. It is appreciated.
Not by me!

I suggest that until they accept a Muslim's prayers as being as important as their own prayers ... they won't see how self-centered their own prayers are in the broad scope of the issue.

Muslims no doubt believe that Christians are spiritually blind, and vice versa.

That's religion for you ... self-centered to the core of its nasty being.

Christians believe that Muslims are sinners for not being Christian and Muslims believe that Christians are sinners for not being Muslim.

Those prayers that they plaster on the forum stem from vanity, and nothing BUT vanity.

From the book “Infidel,” by Ayaan Hirsi Ali comes the following……

We all heard about Hell. That was what Quran school was mostly about: Hell and all the mistakes that could put us there. The Quran lists Hell’s torments in vivid detail: sores, boiling water, peeling skin, burning flesh, dissolving bowels, the everlasting fires that burns you forever, for as your flesh chars and your juices boil, you form new skin. These details overpower you, ensuring you will obey.

Many Christians are now converting to Islam.

Do you care to discuss the HOLINESS of THAT venture from the Muslim point of view?

I guess NOT ... HUH???

On his death-bed he could have even been of any mindset ... as previously he had been a little of this and a little of that.

Nobody knows what he was thinking just before he died.
