The good news was and is for the self-perceived holy ones is that the evil ones have a special place to go to spend their eternities.

Theologians were always considerate that way. They didn't leave others "completely" out of the picture.

You know, DS, last night I posted a beautiful story about priests in central Africa who spent every cent they had in order to protect their persecuted Muslim neighbors and vowed to continue to do so as the persecution is ongooing. Not one person here commented on it. I'm sure no one even bothered to read the link or view the heartwarming picture of one of the priests holding a Muslim infant in his arms.
This afternoon I posted a lengthy article from Fr. Z on Septuagesima Sunday and the "countdown" from then until Lent (Ash Wednesday is in one week!). Again, no one commented on the beautiful prayer mentioned, or asked any questions or expressed any interest whatsoever.
All they were interested in was retaliation and spite because I had posted an excerpt from an article written by a Protestant evangelical that too many of them are mistaking feelings for faith. They don't have a clue as to what they think they're "digging up" about the Church. All they know is that it sounds bad to them so in a fevered frenzy of malice and ill-will they copy, paste, and hit enter. Too bad they don't pay closer attention to their Bibles...
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Hmmm. I will have to look for the Fr Z article.

Its not just the church, but Christianity is in decline. The Christian Churches in Europe are empty. In reference to the above Benedict believed that liturgical abuses, disobedient Bishops, priests and nuns needed to be addressed. For too long what the church taught was being ravaged by wolves from within. He took some pretty serious actions and took on some pretty powerful people. I think it drained him immensely. You dont admonish someone who demands the church conform to them. You warn them and if they do not hear the church let them be as the Heathen. The church needs to stop worrying about not offending people and speak and act without ambiguity. The new evangelization is beginning and Pope Benedict made effort to ensure the Seminaries were up for it and that meant some changes. Pope Francis was subtle a little too for my taste with Notre Dame. Notre Dame in my opinion has become a disgrace to the church. I think any school with the name Catholic on it needs to start being Catholic. Tim Mohony started his university in Florida and it wont take money from the Rockefeller foundation. No Masons allowed period.
Agreed on every point.

Do you remember the Muslims who took shelter in Bethlehem a few years back? One can only hope that they begin to wonder why someone would do that for them when the day before they were persecuting them.

I mean the Muslims were persecuting the Catholics the day before and then that Church took them in and protected them. Ironically it is the Catholic G.K. Chesterton that Ghandi accredited as a major influence in his plan of peaceful retaliation against Great Britain.

How did we get from your inability to demonstrate that I misquoted the Bible to this? Let's stick with the subject at hand. If I misquoted the Bible you should be able to provide evidence. You haven't so far. However, I'm not perfect and sometimes make mistakes. Please provide evidence so that I can correct my misquote if it exists. I take misquoting the Bible seriously, just as I take misunderstanding the message of the Bible seriously.

Well in the African article you could actually see that question, that wonderment on some of their faces. Understandably cautious, but definitely there.

You are so very transparent when you try to make Catholics seem as saints, when for centuries they did far more than their share of the killing in the name of god.

You people would lie to god himself ... if such a being existed.

Passive resistance! I didn't know that about Chesterton. Ghandi is a favorite and I have a few books here about him, but they don't mention Chesterton. I'm not surprised that Ghandi favored him, though.

Of course Muslims wouldn't trust Christians, just as Christians wouldn't trust Muslims.

Even Catholics didn't trust other Catholics, and Protestants didn't trust other Protestants.

Why would trust each other when none were trust-"worthy???"

<quoted text> Billy Graham is a liar and the truth ain't in him. Billy Graham is a bigger fool than you are if he made that false statement.
No man can come to the Father..........EXCEPT BY CHRIST. That means that to come to the Father you must be a Christian which simply means ""Christ man"". No other way to get into heaven unless you're a Christian and if Billy Graham or any other demonic spirit say anything differently than what scripture teaches then I present that he's a cotton mouth liar.
When Gentiles who have not the law do by nature what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law. They show that what the law requires is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness and their conflicting thoughts accuse or perhaps excuse them on that day when, according to my gospel, God judges the secrets of men by Christ Jesus.(Rom 2:14-16)

So when paul says their conscience also bears witness and their conflicting thoughts accuse or perhaps excuse them on that day,

He doesnt say that they are saved, but doesnt he leave a tiny fraction of a possibility of salvation with God judging the secrets of men by Christ? Or is he as you put it a cotton mouthed liar?
