<quoted text> WRONG, The Catholic church is a man made church which came about from some of the members of the true church which is the Church of Christ. These few members enjoyed the attention and praise they were getting from the Roman dignitaries and for this these members decided to please them back by doing things that these Roman officials desired and that's when you have the development of the Catholic church . The Church of Christ which Jesus built Matthew 16;18 and the Church that Jesus said he would build was eventually built in the year 33 AD when the first souls that were saved were added to the church on the day of Pentecost. There is only one true church of the bible and that's the CoC and I urge all to go to the nearest Church of Christ and study, then get baptized and then you would know that your home will be.
Your 20th century church is a spin off of a spin off, of a spin off, of a spin off........etc.

AN UNBROKEN HISTORY

Jesus said his Church would be "the light of the world." He then noted that "a city set on a hill cannot be hid" (Matt. 5:14). This means his Church is a visible organization. It must have characteristics that clearly identify it and that distinguish it from other churches. Jesus promised, "I will build my Church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it" (Matt. 16:18). This means that his Church will never be destroyed and will never fall away from him. His Church will survive until his return.

Among the Christian churches, only the Catholic Church has existed since the time of Jesus. Every other Christian church is an offshoot of the Catholic Church. The Eastern Orthodox churches broke away from unity with the pope in 1054. The Protestant churches were established during the Reformation, which began in 1517.(Most of today’s Protestant churches are actually offshoots of the original Protestant offshoots.)

Only the Catholic Church existed in the tenth century, in the fifth century, and in the first century, faithfully teaching the doctrines given by Christ to the apostles, omitting nothing. The line of popes can be traced back, in unbroken succession, to Peter himself. This is unequaled by any institution in history.

Even the oldest government is new compared to the papacy, and the churches that send out door-to-door missionaries are young compared to the Catholic Church. Many of these churches began as recently as the nineteenth or twentieth centuries. Some even began during your own lifetime. None of them can claim to be the Church Jesus established.

The Catholic Church has existed for nearly 2,000 years, despite constant opposition from the world. This is testimony to the Church’s divine origin. It must be more than a merely human organization, especially considering that its human members— even some of its leaders—have been unwise, corrupt, or prone to heresy.

Any merely human organization with such members would have collapsed early on. The Catholic Church is today the most vigorous church in the world (and the largest, with a billion members: one sixth of the human race), and that is testimony not to the cleverness of the Church’s leaders, but to the protection of the Holy Spirit."

Did you add your claim yet?
You are saying that catholics should pay to prevent victims of abuse from allowing their abusers to be exposed for their criminal acts? That is what this $800,000 was about. To suppress evidence from coming to court.
Everytime a priest is charged with sexual abuse, you STAR C help pay for his defense in court.........and you support that? UNBELIEVABLE!
Its obvious you are on the side of the abusers and the wrong side of criminal justice.
Your church boasts about ZERO tolerance. Laughable!
Your church is suppose to be the advocates of justice and morality. Evidentaly they aren't. Very sad

32 priests charged in abuse claims in St Paul Minnesota. The arch diocese paid upwards of $800,000 of parishioners money to lobby groups to not change the time limit of exposing clergy criminals.
So, catholics in this arch-diocese supplied the $800,000 that the church used for lobbying against being able to bring criminal clergy to justice.
Its a mess in St Paul with priests and parishioners demanding hard answers from the bishop.
Thankyou to the many victims who came forward.
This is the same scenario that is playing out right across america and around the world.
If you can't trust the messengers, how can you trust their message.
UNBELIEVABLE!
Oh yeah - it really doesn't matter where, but all Catholic parishners support these acts. If they didn't they wouldn't still be attending that church, nor would they give money to the church, if all the church is going to do, is make payouts to continue to keep a cover-up going.

But I regress, since so-called Catholics continue to participate in donating and turning a blind eye.

It's the same story told by every arrogant preacher that mentally picks his/her favorite scriptures from every religion on earth.
LOL, no leave up to the Apostles that walked the earth with JESUS.

Never said I was qualified unlike you who seem to know everything about a Church you don't belong to.

None as arrogant as YOU!

This is correct. So why do you constantly think I am can lead someone into a belief?
<quoted text>
Where did I say that they were "holy"?
My perspective is just that - one person's opinion.
Although my opinion has many plausible statements that could make my opinion fact, it still is just opinion.
Another thing about my opinion and belief, is that it seems to be more truthful than that which Christianity wants to convey. So again, my facts dispute the so-called "Christian" doctrine, thus placing more plausibility with my opinion than of what has been established already.
This is why I am here. Your version again, is an unfounded accusation.
Where did I include the word holy as part of describing Jesus?

You believe your cognitive processing of facts is more valid than others who use non-cognitive processing (faith). And this makes your beliefs in truth neither more nor less valid, but merely your perception of belief....

I guess you still missed it - I don't preach, but teach.

I do all the clarifying that you fail at, when you include the Self in your posts. Just to keep you and others honest.

But I guess that isn't working, because you still are being dishonest towards me, by making up false claims of what I do and believe.

I think it would be best for the both of us, if you just stop posting to me, because it seems all you can do is make up bullshite stories about me that are blatantly incorrect and untrue.

When the topic is brought up, catholics get very defensive instead of becoming part of the solution in solving these terrible problems.

Its way past time catholics demand answers to terrible wrong doings in their church, but they don't! They stay like quiet uniformed church mice, believing their crooked church leaders have all the answers from God and everything will be OK.

Like I've stated, a person learns to have faith, but rejects those facts that have already been verified.

Are my statements more valid - IMO - yes, especially when I've shown valid discrepancies associating to what Christianity claims as "true".

And you are right, it is merely just my perception. Self.

HB - you clearly understand the concept, but continuously trying to negate it, like June - well, like her, your success rate is not very good.

Finally, your quotes are out of context as you know but you have lied so much the truth is not within you.
While you accept the argument of an amatuer blogger, I'll go with the opinions of men who received Doctorates from Oxford University.

No saying that if someone gets abused they should get money for help.

I support the 99.9% priest that are good honest men working for The Lord .

No one supports filthy dirty men, you are wrong.

Go pick on the teachers, Boy Scout, ex-Cops, your uncle, your father, coaches, youth workers, nurses, married pastor, day care workers, etc...
