I won't "knock" KM for the statement. I have no ground. It takes a certain amount of prudent confidence just to make such a statement in this atmosphere, knowing it stands to be intensely scrutinized, and most likely ridiculed.

No, Judaism does not have Purgatory. Purgatory, which is prominent in Catholic theology, is a place designed for an individual to redeem oneself, having the final opportunity of purification before entering Heaven. Purgatory arose from the Christian belief in original sin, and how everyone is born a sinner by virtue of descending from Adam. Therefore, innocent babies that died did not have the ability to be baptized and accept Jesus as their savior, or they were not christened, but they would be subject to Hell nonetheless. Consequently, the Catholics created Purgatory as a state after death for which individuals, particularly babies and children, could have the opportunity to purify their souls rather than be summarily subject to eternal damnation. It was a response to reconcile a seemingly heartless and merciless application of Christian doctrine with practical consciousness. Babies along with others have the opportunity to purify their souls in Purgatory to enter Heaven according to Catholic tradition.
Jews reject the idea that anyone is born sinful. We believe everyone is born with the ability to choose evil and the ability to choose good. We are not responsible for the sins of our forebears and they are not responsible for our transgressions.

That would be comparable with the "waters" in the journey depicted in the "Book of the Dead". Those in the river have the opportunity to rise above the waters if they so chose.
Sound familiar?

<quoted text>
As far as your thing about a Priest who disagrees with a Marian doctrine? Who cares? There are tons of Priests and laity who disagree with certain aspects of the Church. Sometimes that even includes dogma. I'm sorry you thought it was a shocking bombshell.
If the Priest wants, he can leave the CC, pay $29.99 on the internet and become a minister. He can buy an old Blockbuster Video store and in no time, he'll have his own 'church'. Basically that's how your Protestantism began anyway.
I read your posts on the last few pages,and you are wrong about how Prots began.It is obvious that you like many of your fellow Catholics deny the facts of history.If a person is satisfied at HOME,and find life to be not only tolerable but also a place of LOVE,they will not want to leave HOME.Everyone knows that to live in Peace with others brings harmony.Historically the RCC ever since it absorbed political ambitions often became despotic toward its peoples.We see that especially in Spain and Portugal during the Inquisition.

But more important the lack of knowing the Word and not having the full freedom to live according to IT,and not just the local vicar,caused the rapid growth of a Pharisaical religious system,that enforced the Canon of Law,rather than to introduce to a soul the intimate and loving saving GRACE of Christ.

All of these things caused the cessation of many to leave the Roman Church and to join with groups of believers who wanted to live according to the Holy Word of God rather than a Pharisaical regime that came from Rome.Protestantism is just a categorizing of a people who left the RCC to literally find the Personal,loving Nature of God in Christ.To be in fellowship with others who found out that Jesus was much more concerned about their welfare than the priests who were assigned to enforce Catholic Canon."The Law brings one to the knowledge of their sin,but Grace salvages one from their sin."

Just because many RCs to date are concerned about human rights and are free to really discover their personal faith in Jesus,does not mean that the RCC has always fostered this climate of free-will thinking and personal revelation.

The word Protestant may separate Christians,and the word Catholic and Orthodox also do the same,but the fact remains that Jesus Christ is God in the Flesh,and that He sits at the right Hand of His Father,and that He sent the Holy Spirit to "Convict men of their sins,and to administer both Faith and Grace." We are not called as believers to serve an institution,although that is commendable to an extent,but to SERVE the Living Christ,to Know Him and to share in His holy attributes and (YES)His sufferings.

When you or any other Catholic assumes that Protestantism is solely the breaking down of Christian dogma and truth,you fail to see that it was the Roman Church that first caused the break down by treating God's people like slaves of a ruthless system. The Protestants were believers who could not abide by useless laws,but found GRACE in time of need,and formed communities based on that Grace which was "Spread abroad in the hearts by the Power of the Holy Spirit." The Word of God confirms it,and no matter where you think the Bible came from,it does not foster a highly institutionalized Pharisaical system.

The earliest Christians were the Nazarines. The apostles were among them. The RC did not come along until some time later after Rome went thru some changes, and apparently Constantine's mother converted, although he never actually left sun worship. Simon Magus played a role in forming the religion known today as Catholicism.

Understanding the Essenes and Nazarines, and their teachings and history will better the understanding of history, religion, and the writings of the bible in regard to Jesus and the message. IMO

I don't perceive that people are evil, and so I never believe that I see any evil in others.
I see many humans that I suspect because of being so badly let down by others have lost the ability to trust. And I see many humans that probably through experience have become emotionally bankrupt and in turn as a means of survival have become cruel ... but still I don't perceive they are evil. I perceive they are damaged, as in many ways I am damaged.
I suggest that religion is bankrupt of common sense.
The word game again June. Evil is basically a strong intent of the will of an individual,who chooses to do wrong over what he or she knows to do right.Greedy men and women who plan and scheme(plot) to gain wealth by causing misfortune to others are evil.When a man grabs a hold of a child and rapes him or her,that is evil.Gossip when it becomes degenerate and causes a person's reputation to be marred is evil.If a husband seeks to dominate his family to the point they can barely function in a wholesome and loving state,is evil,the same applies to a woman.

Evil has been falsely made into a religious word,when it defines the belligerent act of a man or woman to do great harm to others.Lust,greed,avarice and many other bad traits in men and women often become evil in scope because the people who commit such things do so with selfish intent.Your statement was very good in that you are careful NOT to call a person evil flippantly.And that you understand human frailties.However many people of faith are filled with concern and know how to deal with those who are treacherous by nature.Com mon Sense is a Biblical law,and that is found in most believers!

witchcraft
noun
noun: witchcraft
1.
the practice of magic, especially black magic; the use of spells and the invocation of spirits.
https://www.google.ca/#q=witchcraft+definitio...
Once the incantation has been uttered, the invocation is loosed in the dimension(by willful force), and can not be recanted, as it has already begun it's interaction within the universal law of nature. Almost always, it comes full circle and harms the very instigator of the act along with all the damage intended and even that not intended(through the ignorance) by that perpetrator.
That is why such acts or actions are discouraged and frowned upon by those who know and understand the "practice".
Many "christians"(and others) do not realize the damage that can be done by their "mouth" to all that surrounds them--including their own self condemnation by their "works" They are forbidden to even read about it.
It is not what goes "into" the mouth that harms--it is what comes "out" of the mouth that harms.

I try to accept "folks" for what I see in them and the circumstance. I weigh everything on a perpetually adjusting scale of fairness and justice to the best of my ability. Within that framework, a trust or distrust will eventually develop. Until such time that trust is seriously challenged, it will continue to hold that position as valid. Perhaps one day I will reveal to you where I learned how it is done.
The answer to your ??? is a relative yes.
