What gets me June, is that jesus said we are not accountable for our fathers' sins, yet we "inherit" original sin. Now what's wrong with this picture, folks?
The Catholic church fathers wrote the Jesus myth and they put into the mouth of the character whatever THEY wanted to imply.

Had they been honest they would have said "WE hate Judaism and WE hate the Jews. And our aim is to create a new religion."

But honesty was never their policy.

----------
Nothing is wrong with that picture. "Original sin" resulted when Adam disobeyed God's instruction, and obeyed a direct temptation from the devil. He then accused God and the woman, rather than take responsibility for his action.(He might have been forgiven.)("It was that WOMAN that YOU gave me," he said.)(Woman has been blamed ever since!) That was all God's responsibility.

When legal courts were being formed under the judgment/care of men, they were instructed not to make a son pay for his father's sins/deeds. Adam blamed God and the woman for his sin; the woman blamed the serpent. The human court is to recognize the individual responsibility.

Psychiatrists have convinced us today that our misdeeds are due to someone elses mistreatment of us. But we have a choice; no one else can 'make' us do anything. We are responsible for our own deeds...and human courts are to deal only with the individuals responsibility.

God will administer justice to those that human courts cannot touch...only He knows the heart well enough to do so. God gave a remedy for all of this when He sent His Son so that "whosoever will" might be forgiven ( their own sin), and instructs each of us to forgive those who trespass against us.

And there are no disagreements in the RCC..right???

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 20, 2014 ( LifeSiteNews.com )– A worldwide poll of self-described Catholics shows significant disagreement with Catholic doctrine among many Church members.

In a poll commissioned by the Spanish television station Univision, majorities of 12,038 Catholics in 12 countries expressed beliefs against Catholic doctrine on issues like abortion, same-sex “marriage,” and contraceptive use. The Church opposes all three.

According to the poll, while Pope Francis received 87 percent approval, 57 percent of Catholics thought abortion should be legal “in some cases,” with nine percent declaring support any time. Seventy-eight percent of respondents support contraception use, 66 percent back same-sex “marriage,” and 51 percent believe women should be priests.

Thirty-eight percent of respondents believe divorce and remarriage outside of the Church means a person is living in sin, and 47 percent believe priests should be allowed to marry.

Presbyterians Move Toward Recognizing Gay Marriage
DETROIT — Jun 19, 2014, 3:57 PM
Associated Press
The top legislative body of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has taken major steps toward recognizing gay marriage.
Had religion never existed, they would never have had to back-track what they first claimed was truth from a god.

Even when I was under the spell of religion, I never did believe that a god would judge homosexuals as being offensive when they had consensual sex.

And because I never believed it, I never judged them as being of less worth than me TO a god ... thankfully.

After all those centuries of Christians putting homosexuals into prisons and worse ... putting them to death ... I wonder if (metaphorically stating) once a bell is rung if it can ever be unrung?

Imagine the screams of homosexuals being burned in the flames as the Catholic church fathers stood by stating that GOD approved of the behavior.

Just imagine!

Can you still hear their screams of agony echoing through the universal time machine???

Keep in mind that if according to Jesus, there was no Catholic religion ... then there was no Catholic hell ... and that only leaves a Protestant hell that was worth keeping.

Of course Gehenna in the right circle, might be worth a mention.

No dissension in the RCC tojo??? Everybody agrees on everything????

Catholics have become much more liberal than their Church when it comes to personal behavior – especially on questions about sexual behavior. Even when it comes to same-sex marriage, which has affected U.S. politics for years and is something on which the Catholic Church takes a clear position against, many Catholics deviate from Church teaching. In the latest Economist/YouGov Poll, 42% of Catholics believe the Catholic Church should sanction gay marriage. 48% oppose this.

As is true nationally, there are gender differences when it comes to support for gay marriage: 56% of men oppose the Church permitting same-sex marriages; about half of women are in favor.

Women tend to be more religious than men. And while increased religiosity usually means increased opposition to gay marriage, gender seems to mute its impact on this issue.
Even more Catholics deviate from Church leadership on other questions. 61% believe abortion should be permitted in some cases. 64% say the Church should accept divorce for Catholics. And 63% favor the use of artificial means of birth control.

According to the theology, Lucifer never existed until HE fell into sin.

God must have tempted Lucifer before he even created Adam, knowing also that Adam was GOING to be sinner.

God LOVES SIN and EVIL.

That's why he's so in love with Lucifer and Protestant YOU.

All catlicks agree on everything...right tojo????

While there is no gender gap when it comes to opinion about abortion, there is a difference in how Catholic men and women view birth control and divorce. Women are much more likely than men to favor the Church allowing divorce for Catholics. 53% of men say it should. Women’s support is 19 points higher: 72% of them want the Church to permit divorce.

A clear majority of men, 59%, favor the Church allowing the use of artificial means of birth control. But even more women, 67%, favor the Church’s teaching on this issue.

On the current birth control debate – whether health care plans should be required to cover contraception -- Americans overall believe they should. That’s especially true of women: women think health insurance plans should be required to cover contraception by 52% to 30%, while men disagree 46% to 39%. Overall, Catholics agree that employer health care plans should cover contraception, and by a similar margin as the public overall.

There is more...want to see it?????

From the book "The Comfortable Pew," by Pierre Berton comes the following....... Published in 1965.

Notwithstanding what the clergy believe, the church’s attitudes toward sex have changed, and quite radically, as have its attitudes in numbers of areas.(After all, we no longer consign heretics to the flames in the belief that we are doing them a personal favor; we do not force those who claim the earth revolves around the sun to recant their dangerous theories; nor do we any longer-believe as the Bishops of the Church of England once believed—that by hanging seven-year-olds for petty theft we protect society from mayhem. There was an age, for instance, when many of the major Protestant sects believed, as one or two minor ones still do, that dancing, even when it involved something as innocent as Paul Jones, was indescribably sinful, and that those who practiced this lustful relationship would suffer torment for all eternity.

In our own century, there was a time when kissing was looked upon with equal severity. A Christian woman kissed a man only as a seal to an engagement.

It is pertinent to recall that many of the churches that now whole-heartedly favour the idea of family planning by mechanical methods were once as whole-heartedly against it as the Roman Catholics seem to be. It is only in this century that any form of birth control has been condoned in any of the major churches.

813 The Church is one because of her source: "the highest exemplar and source of this mystery is the unity, in the Trinity of Persons, of one God, the Father and the Son in the Holy Spirit."259 The Church is one because of her founder: for "the Word made flesh, the prince of peace, reconciled all men to God by the cross,... restoring the unity of all in one people and one body."260 The Church is one because of her "soul": "It is the Holy Spirit, dwelling in those who believe and pervading and ruling over the entire Church, who brings about that wonderful communion of the faithful and joins them together so intimately in Christ that he is the principle of the Church's unity."261 Unity is of the essence of the Church.

815 What are these bonds of unity? Above all, charity "binds everything together in perfect harmony."265 But the unity of the pilgrim Church is also assured by visible bonds of communion:

- profession of one faith received from the Apostles;

-common celebration of divine worship, especially of the sacraments;

- apostolic succession through the sacrament of Holy Orders, maintaining the fraternal concord of God's family.266

----------

It makes no difference if individuals dissent from the Church's teachings as she still professes the same faith, the faith once given...not 42,000 different versions of it, as is the case in protestantism. What the individual thinks does not affect the Church's doctrines.

42,000 Protestant Denominations
July 17, 2011

Christianity Today recently reported that there are 42,000 Protestant Denominations. That is shocking.

However, given that in the United States we have a consumerism mentality, this development is hardly surprising. Consumerism says that if you don’t like the church you are at, you keep shopping until you find one. If you can’t find one that fits, you start your own.
