...Cherry picks?? Today most catholics cherry pick. Most catholics decide going to Sunday mass is not for them. Most catholics use contraceptives, millions of catholics are divorced the church screams NO!!!! Most catholics and many priests/bishops want optional celibacy the church screams NO!!........and on and on.
.....I am sure catholics sit right beside you Evrey Sunday in church that don't follow all the doctrines. Cherry pickers.
....Cherry pick he says!!!...Hahahahahaha!
It is up to them to ( personally) deal with their OWN rebellious and defiant nature in going against the TRUTH of the teachings of the Catholic Church...It is one thing to be a Catholic ( in name only),,,It is another to be commited and faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church that Jesus Himself handed down to His Apostles and to the succeeding Bishops that have followed Him during the at past 2000 years.........There is always the inconsistent and self-interpreting (man made) Protestant Church (down the street) that they can join and "do whatever they want......

And I must add that for any priest to blatantly accuse a child of child molestation should be immediately defrocked. I am so sorry this was done to you.
Priests aren't there to accuse anyone of anything. You should go to your bishop with this.
....Never stated I was molested. Focus on what I said.

Gal 2:11But when Peter came to Antioch, I had to oppose him to his face, for what he did was very wrong.
11. Peteró"Cephas" in the oldest manuscripts Paul's withstanding Peter is the strongest proof that the former gives of the independence of his apostleship in relation to the other apostles, and upsets the Romish doctrine of Peter's supremacy. The apostles were not always inspired; but were so always in writing the Scriptures. If then the inspired men who wrote them were not invariably at other times infallible, much less were the uninspired men who kept them. The Christian fathers may be trusted generally as witnesses to facts, but not implicitly followed in matters of opinion.
You think because Paul rebuked Peter, then Peter wasn't the first Pope?
Listen, oh ignorant one, we have never..ever made a claim that our Popes are untouchable because they are Popes..
Francis could technically be publicly rebuked by Cardinal Dolan if he messes up.. This has happened to Popes in the past. This reply is not for you btw. You are one of the most ignorant human beings I've ever encountered. This reply is for anyone else who you might lead astray by misusing Sacred Scripture. We've explained a thousand times what "infallibility" means. Yet, you continuously misrepresent our teachings as if you never heard anything. This is ridiculous what you do. Its just like a conniving little demon. The bottom line is : when it came down to a final decision on matters of faith and morals, Peter didnt error and neither did his 266 successors.

To clarify your comments: I DO NOT hate the Bible only Church that I was connected with for over 35 years--despite what you might think....In fact--I am thankful for being raised in my bible only Church because the more that I studied sacred scripture (along with researching and studying over 2000 years of Church History, the more I begin to come to the knowledge and realize the TRUTH of The TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ and that HE was the one who initiated, formed and authenticated ONLY ONE TRUE (Universal) Church and it was Catholic!!!
In addition, my family still attend that bible only Church in California and whenever on a visit, I will attend Church with them----however---always making sure that it does not interfere with worshipping Jesus Christ at both daily and Sunday Mass.......The main difference is that the Catholic Church is the ONLY CHURCH that possesses the Fullness of the Faith and the Fullness of the TRUTH in Jesus Christ (only in and through) HIS One TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church---which open up to the Fullness in "growing in the faith and Salvation of Our Lord...
I am sincerely glad to hear that as your posts,make that church sound awful.Seriously.

I am grateful for the nuns that taught me about Jesus and His life. Despite what anyone thinks, I don't hate your new Church..I posted a long post to USA which says what I believe regarding the RCC. I believe many Catholics love Jesus dearly ...but that does not mean others,do not believe in and love Him as,much.

I believe God uses us all to spread His word. And we should be closer. Some of my family is Catholic also.

Again glad you don't hate your old Church

Your "own personal" confession of faith parallels the words of St Peter in the book of Matthew when Jesus asked the Apostles "who do you say that I am". Peter proclaimed Jesus as the Messiah and Jesus responded::: "flesh and blood has not revealed this to you except my Father in heaven.....Yes---Lin!....Flesh and blood has not revealed to you Jesus Christ and His One True Apostolic Catholic Church (except) if it had not been for Our a Father and Christs Father in heaven"...As-former bible only Protestant The "Spirit of a God through His Son Jesus has blessed you with Spiritual insight and revelation of the TRUTH of the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ manifested in and through His One True Catholic Church

You too HOJO.

I really feel that should persecution come in our lifetime, there will be no distinction made among denominations. Maybe then we will find what we,have,in common beliefs.

Some,of us can relate, at least in real life to a,shared belief in CHRIST ...I hope so .

I agree. They promote Peter and say nothing about the Words of Christ. This somehow makes sense to them.
Do you think the Catholics were given a canon of Scripture and after careful study, decided that Peter was the first Pope etc etc? You have to get it out of your mind on what Scripture is. Its difficult for me to understand why you all believe as if the apostles simply handed out a few of their writings. Nowhere in the Bible is the protestant approach to the Bible taught. And the funny thing is: even under your verse verse verse microscope, Catholicism still passes with flying colors.
"You are Peter, and on this rock I will build my Church". From there on, Simon was no longer called Simon, he was called Rock. In the Book of Acts we read "Peter stood up; Peter spoke". It never says "Simon (who's faith is like a rock) stood up".

Sorry but I am seriously wondering if you have dementia as others do. Or you are so self absorbed that you do not really ponder any one else's posts . This issue that you have brought up again has already been addressed. While you accuse others of only being on here to argue, it has become undeniable that you speek this truth about yourself most clearly. You are confused to the extreme and seem to love it, therefor you seek to confuse others, which hasn't worked. But you don't notice. Is it because you forget the conversation that happened yesterday? You say the same crazy pull it out your swamp every day as if it is a new thing.
I do think you are smarter than how you present yourself, dementia or not. I doubt you honestly struggle to understand anything, dementia or not. I doubt you ever really did. You are plainly angry and want the world to feel the same. And by now you are addicted to your rage. But what are you angry about? That there is suffering? That YOU suffer? Well suck it up: everyone suffers, including God. Stop the whining, it's getting old.
Whatsa matter???

You don't WANT to believe as does Billy Graham that Muslims could be welcomed into Christian heaven, "without" the help of "your" guiding scriptural WORDS?

I think it was really very generous of Billy Graham to finally open Jesus' door to Muslims, even though it might BE against Jesus' will. Sometimes even saviors have to be nudged in the right direction.

I was talking about the words Peter spoke.
Do you read and study Bible scripture?
Some man wrote in his religious STAGED-PLAY that the Character Peter SAID "such and such."

That is mythology.

Do not place your faith in the words of MEN. You have been warned ... but your vanity in the concept that you KNOW universal truth ...because of your adamant will to be RIGHT ... keeps blocking your vision.

Do they let them watch the children or volunteer for the disabled or teach their own Christianity?
Are you asking if the clergy at a local Catholic Church would let a stranger off the street come in and watch the children?
I would say definitely not.
Would they let a stranger volunteer?
Perhaps, you would have to talk to the church office.
Would they let a stranger off the street come in and teach their own Christianity?
Absolutely not.

...and for everything else, there's heroin card!
It's possible that the confusion of religious hyperbole has caused many people to depend on alcohol or pot or hard drugs such as cocaine, in order to find some mental relief from the worry of burning in hells taught by the theologians.

Theologians were paid to preach and write more and more junk. So as time went by, most everything human was labeled as being a SIN ... and offensive to GOD!

JUNKOLOGY!!!

I don't believe that a creator exists to give a rat's ass one way or the other.

Have you ever been to Mass? You know you could attend sometime. No one checks your affiliation at the door. No questions asked. No "stand up if you are a visitor". No "fill out the visitors card". They just treat you as if you belong.
YEAH RIGHT!!!

Without people coming in the door they can't train their mentalities to believe that only Catholics KNOW the one and only universal truth.

As do those in all religious cults ... they lure vulnerable humans in to their places of worship, to in turn fill minds with hyperbolic JUNK and then assure the devotees that what they digested was straight from the MIND of a HOLY GOD!

They all use the very same tactics. "WELCOME SISTER (BROTHER)... COME IN and become a member of our lovely close-knit FAMILY."

You have no idea "what peter spoke" -- all your sources are bogus. In fact, peter herself is a man made entity.
They fail to admit to their selves that theologians in all religions were hired to write and preach mythology.

That is why they continue to fight over whose words in whose religious literature owns universal truth.

The devotees of the cults will not bend their egos to say "You know what ... we have all been SHAFTED by the crafty theologians. Let's admit that even if "future" is a reality, we can't know it ahead of when it unfolds."

Imagine the peace of mind that could follow such an admittance.

If you didn't have your religious hyperbole to preach at others ... I suggest your life would have very little meaning to you.

As a Protestant you came here to preach universal truth at Catholics ... yet you try to feign that you LOVE everybody as "Jesus" loves everybody ... except of course the Catholics that he will reject to hell if they don't become Protestants.

"The pope is a nice man" ... you say ... with the stipulation that Jesus won't love him unless he converts to your Protestant religion.

What a crock!!!
