Yes, the Roman Church has the better position. I have always been amazed at the FR Orthodox posters who talk about second and third marriages being penances. Marriage as a penance? What?
Not penance. Rather, the service is penitential unlike the service for a first marriage.
Okay, so what should be joyful is penitential? That still makes no sense.
I sense Pope Francis wants to see the Christian east ALL come back to Rome. When he was installed as Pope, he did invite leaders from the Orthodox Christian communities.
I have a friend from my parish who is going tomorrow to next door RI from CT, two hours for a funeral of a friend of hers going back to jr. high, who was Orthodox, that is Romanian Orthodox. Sadly she killed herself I was told, talk about disfunction.
....Plus the beautiful icons holy art!
“Best of luck; by the time we know The Truth we cant come back and change what weve done.”
Power of numbers, power of numbers sadly does not go in your favor because the boomers has the hugh numbers in regards to its size.
Yes, it’s the unfortunate truth. I hope we have Francis for a long time. The longer the better.
Then go with someone younger like Pope John Paul when he was elected. That would be perfect.
I consider the Osteens and Schullers to be far closer related to the catholics than any prostestants. Their doctrines share the catholic’s adversion to scriptural truth, and they build massive buildings that disgrace the Lord, just like the catholics.
How about priests molesting boys? Is that allowed?
“Are you correcting the Pope?”
Ho! Apparently I am now subject to an inquisition by the blessed ebb tide. I guess it’s all slipping away from you now, eh?
“Osteens and Schullers to be far closer related to the catholics than any prostestants.”
An odd statement from a protestant disavowing his fellow brothers in the faith.
These guys hate the scriptures.
You mean the folks that actually use all the books? Why would Catholics hate what they put together?
Catholics didn’t put any important scripture together. The gospels were in the northern limits of the british isles 250 years before Constantine created the Roman catholic church.
They were brought there by followers of “the way,” who were true worshipers of Yeshua, following Torah, keeping his sabbath, and feasts, just as the disciples did.
Scriptural truth? Not all what Christ did is written in Scripture and Scripture itself affirms this. There is the Catholic Church and the rest is “everyone unto himself” as being a Church - these are heretics, renegades, and your average “low-information” Christian.
I don't know. Why don't you ask Steelfish? He's the one who refers to Bible thumpers.
What is it with Catholics and radical leftist slurs like Bible thumper and snake-handler?
>> “Not all what Christ did is written in Scripture and Scripture itself affirms this” <<
Its not about what he did, but what he said, and everything he said is definitely in scripture.
