Whether he is good or bad is between he and the church.
That has always bugged me. Is is NOT between Ryan and the church, it is between Ryan and the Almighty."
I used to work with a woman who claimed to be "a good catholic". I asked "don't you mean a good Christian?"
This occurred while she was talking about going to see a psychic to "speak" with her dead relatives.
I asked her if she read the Bible. She replied she did, on a daily basis.
I then went home, looked up the passages about turning to those whom "speak to the dead", fortune tellers, the dead are aware of nothing, etc". I then gave them to her for her to read.
Didn't stop her from going.
Christianity has many different sects. It is the individual that decides for him or herself to be a good one....as "good" as man can be, which is FAR from perfect.
