It is one thing to disagree. It is another to believe one can read another man and woman's heart. Nothing wrong with questioning one's beliefs. It is another to condescendingly "feel sorry" for 2 people. It is another to suggest subtly that they do not change beliefs because they would have to leave their career. Step back and take a look at what you said.  (May 3, 2013 | post #437571)

I must try to see the difference between my picture of a person and his behavior, as it is narcissistically distorted, and the person's reality as it exists regardless of my interests, needs and fears.” ― Erich Fromm, The Art of Loving  (May 3, 2013 | post #437558)

Love is the most necessary of all virtues. Love in the person who preaches the word of God is like fire in a musket. If a person were to throw a bullet with his hands, he would hardly make a dent in anything; but if the person takes the same bullet and ignites some gunpowder behind it, it can kill. It is much the same with the word of God. If it is spoken by someone who is filled with the fire of charity- the fire of love of God and neighbor- it will work wonders." -St. Anthony Mary Claret  (May 3, 2013 | post #437313)

The salvation of Christians, those inside or outside the "True Church", whatever this may be, depends on the all-good, allwise and all-powerful God, who acts in the Church but also through other "ways." God's saving grace is also channelled outside the Church. It cannot be assumed that salvation is denied them.  (May 2, 2013 | post #437202)

What is the practical attitude of Catholicism today to other faiths? It was well expressed at the Assisi "world day of prayer for peace" hosted by Pope John Paul II at the shrine of the peace-lover Francis on 27 October 1986. There, in welcoming "representati ves of the Christian Churches and Ecclesial Communities and World Religions," the Pope drew attention to the fact that "the form and content of our prayers are very different. . . and there can be no question of reducing them to a kind of common denominator," while also insisting that a "common ground" could be found in the "dimension of prayer, which in the very real diversity of religions tries to express communication with a Power above all human forces."  (May 2, 2013 | post #437182)

First you have no idea whether I am Protestant or Catholic or Born Again or whatever. Secondly I see your repeating the same thing over and over in a blog is really converting hordes of people.  (May 2, 2013 | post #437171)

CORRECTION I never said it was NOT the True Church. You are locked into some kind of warp. I said your throwing this up in people's faces 24-7 is not representative of the Churchs founder- Christ  (May 2, 2013 | post #436919)

Man can certainly keep on lying (and he does so); but he cannot make truth falsehood. He can certainly rebel (he does so); but he can accomplish nothing which abolishes the choice of God. He can certainly flee from God (he does so) ; but he cannot escape Him. He can certainly hate God and be hateful to God (he does and is so) ; but he cannot change into its opposite the eternal love of God which triumphs even in His hate. He can certainly give himself to isolation (he does so — he thinks, wills and behaves godlessly, and is godless) ; but even in his isolation he must demonstrate that which he wishes to controvert — the impossibility of playing the "individual " over against God. He may let go of God, but God does not let go of him. Karl Barth Catholic Theologian  (May 1, 2013 | post #436882)

Dont come at me like I was denying it is Christ's Church. He did not found any Church so that members of the Church could go around saying THE ONE TRUE APOSTOLIC CHURCH over and over. You speak of it as if it is your Church. Your weapon to hold over others. If it is His Church then give it to Him. It is not the Catholic's church that they can use to swagger and boast. It is Christ's Church. Represent Him and His teachings.  (May 1, 2013 | post #436869)

My Church .My Church. My Church. My Church is the True Church. My Church follows Scripture, Your church does this which means it is not True. My church does this which means it is better than yours. And don't tell me that Scripture tells us to defend our faith. Read this holistically in terms of Christ's message. This is about pride. This is not about Christ. Who will win the debate. It is about Christ. Christ was the one Who suffered on the Cross, It is not about you,  (May 1, 2013 | post #436848)

2 Corinthians 10:12-18 Not that we dare to classify or compare ourselves with some of those who are commending themselves. But when they measure themselves by one another and compare themselves with one another, they are without understanding. But we will not boast beyond limits, but will boast only with regard to the area of influence God assigned to us, to reach even to you. For we are not overextending ourselves, as though we did not reach you. For we were the first to come all the way to you with the gospel of Christ. We do not boast beyond limit in the labors of others. But our hope is that as your faith increases, our area of influence among you may be greatly enlarged, so that we may preach the gospel in lands beyond you, without boasting of work already done in another's area of influence.  (May 1, 2013 | post #436789)

Just the opposite. Their beliefs became the hierarchy's beliefs. And there was much debate and searching for the TRuth.  (Apr 30, 2013 | post #436513)
