if you have no explanation and reality of the law, people won’t realize they need the gospel. the law shows you why you are doomed, and in this way, points those worried about their fate, to the gospel.
No wonder the Pope doesn’t grant interviews. Everything gets twisted into untruths.
Why do you slander the Pope? “fondler”
Hate the sin; love the sinner.
I was speaking of judging behaviors, of course. I don’t know how anyone could think themselves able to judge souls.
Thank you for the link! I see what I was doing wrong. I searched on World Youth Day 2013. You searched on pope, beach, rio. Perhaps the msm do not recognize WYD terminology.
**Hes a socialist
He likes Muslims
And now the gay lifestyle**
Didn’t think this pope would jump the shark this quick. Just one more step in the faggotization of society in general
While one is alive — Christ is perfect mercy.
At the moment of one’s death — Christ becomes perfect justice.
What you said!
Media spin aside, I do not like the pope’s attempt to minimize abhorrant behavior. Homosexual priests have no place in a church. I expect a priest to condemn sin, not excuse it or whitewash it. The Church has been infiltrated with filth since Vatican II. Francis’ words are what I would expect from an episcopalian. Very disappointing indeed.
I cannot picture hearing words like this from Benedict.
Kingdom of God is exclusive... none of us deserve it.. but thank God He made a way.... and that Way, Truth and Life said go and sin no more.... knowing what is sin and abominations to God is a good start for all.. Gods word is our law book.. and we are guilty... all of us. Can’t plead innocence or ignorance.. our next step is to repent and stop doing what we were doing before we knew what price our sins cost The Eternal Father- His only Son... kind of humbling for those who can be humbled... pride gets in the way of that humbling.... gay pride, murderer pride, adulterer pride, thief pride, liars pride, coveters pride..... we all could join most of those parades on earth.... but in paradise it is all about Him...
Clean house and stop excusing why it isn’t being done.
So what if it takes a while.
It’s far better than what is happening NOW, which is nothing.
At least starting is a step in the right direction, amount of time it takes notwithstanding.
A local pastor in Seattle tells the story of how he thought a special Saturday service to focus on women would be good. I forget how he worded the announcement that made it into the surrounding community - but somehow it attracted a large number of lesbians!
He said that was the last thing he had expected - but he figured it was a sure sign from God that when the first few pews were filled with homosexuals - he was supposed to minister to them. He somehow tailored additional Saturday services to focus, in a loving way, on their specific needs and issues.
“I was speaking of judging behaviors, of course.”
There was a freeper a long time ago that said his dad, or perhaps their preacher said something like:
“I don’t consider myself as a Judge. More like a fruit inspector.”
He supports homosexual priests. He says it’s ok for
Catholic priests to be gay as long as they don’t act
on their perverted whims. Most likely he is one himself
and if not, might as well be considering he just opened
the door for the total perversion of the church.
Perverted homosexual priests are not of sound or honest
mind. They undermine the integrity and trust of the church.
How can you trust a priest who has a vile and corrupt
perverted mind? As long as they don’t practice their
perversion it’s ok to trust them?
Homosexuality has NO place in the Catholic priesthood. To
condone or sympathize with it shows no compassion but
Who Am I to Judge Them If Theyre Seeking the Lord in Good Faith?
How does he know it’s in good faith when their
minds are sick?
The church itself is not the problem here. It’s the
homosexual infiltration that has as it’s goal to bring
it down and Francis the fondler just gave them cart blanch.
LOL, that’s perfect.
