From the book compiled by Larousse … World Mythology

The goddesses

Hel

It was a goddess, also, who guarded the kingdom of the dead, at least as far as the Scandinavians were concerned, and she was called Hel. She lived underground, in the land of shades, which in many ways was like the Orcas of the Ancients, but it must not be thought of as a place of torture and punishment like the Christian hell. Hel, therefore, was not an evil deity, and she is never quoted as the daughter of the diabolical Loki until after certain late texts make their appearance, undoubtedly under the influence of the Christian faith.

Luther's main problem was his lust for a Catholic nun that he wanted to marry and being a monk, pope Leo X frowned on Luther's disobedience to Catholic rules.

So Luther made it point to show the pope who was boss.

Calves,..or hail Mary s as,penance nor indulgences, cannot pay for sin ALREADY PAID FOR .
I could care less,what each denomination says CLAY ..that's the heart of it .
And like it or not GOD allowed the Reformation and the Prosestants,to spread the word .to the New,World ...yes,along with the brave Catholic missionaries,...in a COUNTRY FOUNDED by folks who thought there should be NO STATE RELIGION.OR PERSECUTION for not flowing it or reading a bible ...And they made it into law,.
The RCC Was,too entwined with politics,...something had to change ..
It did ..yes,y our pope I think will be a big force for change ..maybe God wanted the change sooner ..following HIS MESSAGE ...believe ..be born again ...follow,ME ..love your neighbor ...in bibles,that were used a,primers for children .
There was no pure bible study..though we learned it .
My daughter was talking about all the books in the bible ..SORRY CLAY ..we learned in the Mass in pieces,...never reAding full books as kids .
Now you HAVE BIBLE STUDY ...
All change is not bad ..But you folks on this forum deny anything ever changed ..it has,just in my lifetime ...
You make accusations,of fundamentalism because I say we called the CHURCH ...ROMAN CATHOLIC ...the pope did..the nuns did..the catechism did ..You cannot admit things,have changed in 60 years,let alone in the middle ages,.
That Church was NOT the same Chur h led by your most 'recent POPES ....it was a political force run by a quasi monarch using logical influence in the secular business of countries .
It changed ...And the Reformation had a,big hand in that ..You g is should thank God for that
Belief in the SAviour is,a one on one proposition ...as will be the JUDGEMENT
Why are you bringing this up again, rose? How many times do we have to tell you that you are wrong? I guess many. You just don't learn.

All through the centuries popes changed the rules of supposed "conduct" by their own wills.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >

From the book "The History Of Christianity ... The Church from the Reformation to the Present, Volume 2, by Clyde L. Manschreck ... comes the following.

On the death of Alexander II, Hildebrand ordered a fast for three days, and was then acclaimed by the people and elected by the cardinals as Pope Gregory VII (1073—85). Dedicated to the austere ideals of Cluny, Gregory sought to enforce clerical celibacy not only as a purer state but as a means of freeing the church from the world. In1074 he prohibited future marriages and ordered married priests to dismiss their wives or give up reading mass. Clerical marriage from his viewpoint was no better than fornication. Laymen were urged not to take the sacraments from such guilty priests. Havoc resulted. Priests were insulted, tortured; some were driven to suicide, some even murdered. Legal wives became harlots, and legitimate children, bastards. But Gregory moved relentlessly forward, unseating bishops who opposed him, especially in the north. He enforced clerical celibacy, but at a great price and without permanence, for at the time of the Reformation in the sixteenth century the church was licensing clerical concubines and taxing the children of bishops.

From the book, Eunuchs for the Kingdom of Heaven … Uta Ranke-Heinemann

The same disapproval of pleasure affected the priestly way of life, which had to be remote from the moral slums of everyday existence. Hostility to marriage logically leads to the celibate life of the priesthood. And so it is no wonder that the great Mariologist and despiser of marriage, Pope Siricus, stood in the forefront of the battle against the marriage of priests. He had a decisive influence on the development of celibacy when in his letter to the Spanish bishop Himerius of Tarragona (385) he labeled it a crimen for priests to continue having relationships with their wives after their ordination. He called that an abscoena cupiditas.(At the beginning of the evolution of celibacy most priests were still married; only after 1139 were priests no longer allowed to marry.)

Only One Is the True Church of Christ Many today believe that all churches are right. In other words, it does not really matter which church one goes to. They say,“God has saved people in all churches. It is up to the individual in each church to be sincere in his worship and accept Jesus as his personal Saviour.” They also say,“God has His children in all denominations. Therefore all churches are the same.” These statements are made by well know preachers,“pastors,” and members of various denominations. I want to answer this opinion from the Biblical point of view. I would also like to ask each reader to be open-minded. The Bible says:“To-day if ye shall hear his voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.”(Hebrews 3:15). What is a Church? Before the above opinions can be discussed, we must first know what the word “church” means.“Church” is a translation of the Greek word &#7952;&#9 54;&#954;& #955;&#951; &#963;&#94 3;&#945; (ekkl&#275;sia ). Greek is the language in which the New Testament was first written. &#7960;&#9 54;&#954;& #955;&#951; &#963;&#94 3;&#945; means “a called out assembly,”“a congregation.” It refers to God’s people who are called out of the world into fellowship with Him (I John 1:3; Acts 26:16-18; Colossians 1:13, I Peter 2:9-10). The church is God’s redeemed people (Acts 20:28; Titus 2:14; I Peter 1:18-19). It is a holy nation (I Peter 2:9). Members of the church are citizens of a heavenly kingdom (Colossians 1:13; Philippians 3:20-21). The church is part of God’s eternal purpose in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 3:8-11). When Jesus said:“I will build my church,” He meant to establish His redeemed people who would be a holy nation, citizens of his heavenly kingdom (Matthew 16:18). Since Jesus Christ Himself established His church, then no man on earth has a right to establish a church. Jesus said:“But he answered and said, Every plant which my heavenly Father planted not, shall be rooted up.”(Matthew 15:13). The Psalmist wrote:“Except Jehovah build the house, They labor in vain that build it”(Psalm 127:1). Where Can One Find Salvation? Since no man has a right to establish any church, it follows that only in the church which Jesus established is salvation to be found. Then Jesus promised,“I will build my church,” note that He was promising to build one church, not many. This one church began in Jerusalem on the first Pentecost day after His resurrection. Three thousand people heard the gospel. They believed and were baptized and the Lord added them to His church (Acts 2:36-38, 42, 47). Jesus Christ is the Saviour of His body, which is the church (Ephesians 1:22-23; 5:23).
