What's your choice?

[3] To believe that prayers and Masses offered for the dead relieve their sufferings in purgatory ...

"2. The faithful on earth, through the communion of saints, can relieve the sufferings of souls in purgatory by prayer, fasting, and other good works, by indulgences, and by having Masses offered for them."

Reference:[Louis LaRavoire Morrow, D.D. My Catholic Faith, p.243]

... or to renounce such unscriptural belief?

"... But the dead know nothing, and they have no more reward ...nevermore will they have a share in anything done under the sun." [Ecc. 9:5-6, New King James Version]

"All of us must appear in front of Christ's judgment seat. Then all people will receive what they deserve for the good or evil they have done while living ..." [11 Cor. 5:10, God's Word]

"Nowhere in the Scriptures does the word,'Purgatory', occur ..."

Reference:[Joseph Kenny, C.S.S.R. Purgatory: Doctrine of Comfort and Hope, p.2]
Note:

The Catholic Church upholds the belief that prayers and Masses for the dead relieve their sufferings in purgatory. On the contrary, the Bible teaches that the dead no longer benefit from what the living do. Moreover, nowhere in the Bible can we find the word "purgatory" or any teaching supporting it.

Facts and Figures

50% of US priests are not celibates---

"As many as half of Roman Catholic priests in the United States do not uphold their vows of celibacy, according to estimates from a 25-year study by a fomer Catholic priest...

" ...his study indicated 20 percent of priests 'have a clear pattern of heterosexual behavior,' 10 percent to 13 percent are homosexually active, and 6 percent are involved sexually with minors.

"While half of priests generally support the idea of celibacy, only 2 percent fully achieve it..."

Reference:( "Half of priests not celibate, study indicates," The MIami Herald, August 12, 1990)

Of the thousands of Roman Catholic saints in the Vatican roster, none ever has shown any miraculous act when the typhoon struck the Philippines!!! But the death of many will be a miracle to the pocket of the Vatican and her priests after the officiating of masses for the dead!!!

The scam is perpetrated and perpetuated at will!!!

There is only one father in spirit, that is Jesus Christ. All the others are usurping power that is not theirs or is beyond them. That's what I learned from Jesus Christ.

Hey - that's just what they need: St. Darla, Patron Saint of Lesbians!

She was a cute little girl, but the poor thing died young; I forget from what.

Hood was busy organizing the 1980 Little Rascals reunion for the Los Angeles Chapter of The Sons of the Desert when she underwent a relatively minor operation at a North Hollywood hospital. Following the procedure, Hood contracted acute hepatitis and died suddenly of heart failure on June 13, 1979; she was 47.

The Our Gang community was stunned at Hood's unexpected death. Fellow Our Gang member Billie "Buckwheat" Thomas said, "I hate to hear it. It's a shock. She was an awfully nice person, a fine woman. We got along real good as kids." He himself died a little over a year later.[1]

Hood is buried at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Hollywood.

Robert,

You mean this one???

Homosexuality In The Catholic Church

"...In one of the very few studies based on hard data -- 1,500 interviews between 1960 and 1985 -- Maryland psychologist Richard Sipe, a former priest, concludes that about 20 percent of 57,000 U.S. Catholic priests are homosexual and that half of these are sexually active. But since 1978, Sipe believes, the number of gay priests has increased significantly; other therapists think the figure today may be closer to 40 percent...."
Reference:(Newsweek, February 23, 1987, p. 44.)

"As recently as the 1970s, priests could leave their orders to get married without facing excommunication, and thousands did just that. But Pope John Paul II has granted far fewer dispensations for priests who wish to marry, so many clergy have had to settle for clandestine liaisons if they cannot reman celibate but want to remain Catholics. Psychologist Richard Sipe, who has conducted a 25-year study of priests, estimates that 20 percent are heterosexually active."

Thanks so much for that info. Darla was probably my favorite; she was an adorable little girl. I was sorry to hear she died so young; actually, didn't they all die fairly young?

Thanks again.

I always offer prayers for someone who's died. I don't know if it does any good...but I do it anyway. I figure it can't hurt. Do I believe we can help the deceased in any way? Not really. But I'll keep on praying.

Good point, but then he'd have to admit his church is not perfect- and he'll never do that.
