    Scripture does not say unfaithfulness is the reason to allow for divorce. This is a protestant interpretation of the Greek work porneia which means un chastity which needs further context which is handed down by the apostles to the Fathers of the Church down to today in the Catholic Church meaning that a person can only be “divorced” if the “marriage” that took place in time was prevented from coming true in reality, like that there was a prenup or that you are marrying your cousin or that you are entering into a marriage with the intention of never having children.

    Rubio goes to Mass only on the holidays. the telegraph exposed him back in 2010 as contributing primarily to a protestant group.

    Rubio is a Catholic when he needs to be but sends his kids elsewhere. 2 articles:

    @Spike speaking in tongues or what one proposes as tongues does not represent an objective way to coming to what is the truth. If you go to one of these events and you find another who also speaks in tongues but you disagree on a doctrine what do you do then? Do you both not have the Holy Spirits protection? How do you know that they are not right and you wrong. You see this is a subjective feeling that might make you feel warm and zealous but its not objective to determine what is truth. What of the Catholic Charismatic movement, which is the same thing with the same type of people seeking out a transformative experience, speaking in tongues just as you. St. Paul told us that not all will be prophets or speak in tongues, and the Apostles did not receive authority because they spoke in rational tongues, but because Christ passed down his authority, and the Apostles continued this by the laying on of hands which Paul recounts. Again why trust your subjective experiences? Why? If there is a disagreement in doctrine between you and me how do we fulfill Matthew 18:15? Do we go to you for a binding decision? Can you tell me why your personal testimony is objectivly more important than a Mormon?

    plus if that is your take then if two tongue speakers have different doctrines that they hold to like on the significance of Baptism how do you know which is right? The one that has a more delicate accent?

  • [2] April 10, 2015 at 9:19am

    @Spike Thank you for providing more subjective experiences. So your claim is that you can speak in tongues therefore you have the Holy Ghost in you. Of course there is no guarantee that speaking in a different tongue is necessarily a gift from God, it might well be from the other side. Can you comprehend what it is that is being said or is it mere gibberish? The devil when he takes possession of people is able to use his knowledge of languages and blaspheme God in such languages but you and I wouldnt necessarily know unless we knew the language. If someone does not speak in tongues are they not of God? Paul suggests otherwise in 1 Corinthians 12. SO trace you’re proposed teachings from the apostles to the Apostolic fathers who were taught directly by the Apostles to the Church Fathers taught by them. Subjective experiences of warm feelings and speaking other languages might seem mystical but there is no guarantee of truth proceeding therein.

    @Spike If I disagree with you and present a different view that is longer than a paragraph it is not logical to proclaim it as being prideful. If your perception of me is that I think myself superior that is your own perception, but I see nothing wrong with being smarter or less intelligent. Christ loves both, and both have responsibilities within the Church’s life so…
    I realized you don’t care what I say when you said you were firm in your “beliefs” and could not be moved no matter the objective evidence presented. One might object to your own pride on this account. Why are you worried? If you have the truth prove it objectively. Faith is no mere trust but a response to grace with ones reason and will, not apart from it.
    And yes it is a feeling just like the Mormons because ultimately you have zero ability to bind anyone to anything you believe because Christ gave you zero authority to do so. Give me one reason, just one why you think you are guided by the Holy Spirit and I am not. Because I disagree with you?
    How do you know you are not blaspheming yourself? Why do you propose your knowledge as from the Holy Ghost? Objectively trace your thinking to the apostles, not just to Luther who you don’t even agree with, but you have the Spirit?

    BTW you writing a 3 stanza poem is not elitist? come on thats a contradiction by your own standards

  • [2] April 7, 2015 at 9:34am

    More rhetoric so console yourself. Please. You claim humility but set yourself as the authority. You are your own Pope, be honest with yourself. Give one reason, one objective reason why anyone should follow what you say.

  • [2] April 7, 2015 at 9:33am

    Now you are honest. You are settled in your ignorance, I could give you evidence again and again that points to the apostles handing down their authority to their successors as Christ told them to but you don’t care for pursuing truth no matter where it takes you. Your opinion that you have the holy spirit guiding you. This is nothing more than a feeling. Why should one follow your feelings on anything? But when you disagree with your own brothers on doctrines pray tell who is right? Does Baptism of Water and the spirit save or is Baptism merely a symbol? Do you have the authority to bind another’s thinking on what you claim as what the Holy Spirit as guided you to? You are not independent of a tradition. You were told how to read scripture and accepted it because it felt right not for any objective reason besides your feelings.

  • [2] April 7, 2015 at 9:32am

    Yes you did dodge because you have no response other than to say that you have nothing but your feelings to appeal to. The joke is that you say additions were made to the canon but you cant point to a Jewish canon that was bound before the nonexistent council of Jamnia which Luther in his ignorance pretended to appeal to even though the Jews lost their authority to bind by that time. The canon of scripture was not set until the 300’s at Hippo and Rome. It was first codified at Second Nicaea in the 700’s, given further explication at Florence and formally dogmatized at Trent. You did not add indeed but took away from that which God had willed to be part of the scripture. Other then your subjective feelings give one reason why you blaspheme the Dueterocanon as apocrypha. What authority do you have other than your feelings to make any binding statements? Its not rhetorical to ask why you accept each book on its own merits as scripture. You blindly accept what Luther told you and that Calvin afforded you, both of whom had no authority to speak or to change anything. Luther set himself up as the moral figure, but there is nothing besides his feelings, as well, to appeal to when declaring his doctrines to be that of the Holy Ghost and that those who disagree with him are wrong. Yet you would not hold to all of his doctrines now would you?

  • April 7, 2015 at 9:08am

    umm i dont disagree with you that Jesus is the only High Priest, perhaps you are unaware of Catholic teaching on this. Second while our Lord is indeed in heaven he is also in every tabernacle here on this Earth now. Mind blowing I know. When he says “This is my body” and that it is true food and true drink, for just as the Lamb of sacrifice was to be consumed so that all the Jews part took in the sacrifice (as a fore shadow of what was to come), so to you must eat or you have no life in you. Christos, continue not looking at pictures lest you idolize your family….

  • [2] April 6, 2015 at 5:44pm


    I wish it was blunt instead you dodged. Saying that scripture says scripture is inspired doesn’t answer which book that was written constitutes part of the canon of scripture. And saying that God will give us what we need presupposes knowing how it will be given. Did it fall from the sky this canon of scripture? So ultimately you feel that in your heart you know its true because you have a subjective feeling that it is right since you feel that God has inspired you to know this? How are you sure of this? Is there an objective thing that you can point to to dispute why others find your canon wanting other than a feeling that you know better on a personal level?
    Point is the Bible does not explain itself. If you want to give an objective reason by Ester or 2nd Timothy is part of the canon that would be great.
    The rest of your words are rhetoric to comfort yourself so keep on track here.

  • [1] April 6, 2015 at 4:36pm

    so your response is empty rhetoric. congrats. Dear protestant riddle me this, how do you know objectivly that every book in scripture belongs in scripture? No poems needed, just a simple answer. Good luck Spike!

    so folks that think they are in the Aaronic line decided to put on a shawl and deliver blessings which they dont have any authority to give because their priesthood was removed with the temple… but go ahead protestants pretend this is a good thing!

    Nancy Pelosi has excommuicated herself along with all others that support abortion. This is a simple matter of Canon Law that provides a simple framework for all in the Church. A person need not be handed a specific document from the vatican to verify they are excommunicated, that is usually reserved to clerics (Luther) and heads of state (kings/presidents). Instead of issuing non stop excommunications from the Vatican itself the church relies on subsidiary to point out that it is the local bishops responsibility to administer the Sacraments. A Bishop can fail here, as well as priests, but the fact she has excommunicated herself is a matter of canon law, not of emotions or indifferentism or even a false sense of mercy.

    A question to Protestants and the orthodox for that matter

    If contraception is ok for you what is wrong with the same sex attracted people and their disordered passions? Objectively speaking, according to the natural law both are disorders like bulimia

    @combative that’s circular reasoning. The Catholic Church canonized the scriptures in the 300′s because it had and continues to have the authority to loose and bind on all who call themselves christian

  • [1] November 5, 2014 at 11:37am

    @combative if that’s what you think why are you against purgatory? When you say instantly you mean there is a quick moment of purifying which is compatible with the teaching so why the semantics?

  • [2] November 5, 2014 at 11:33am

    Right so why follow the traditions Luther Calvin and others instituted 1500 years later by their own interpretation of the bible which the proceeded to change by taking out books without objective authority to do so? Our traditions are apostolic and come from the lips of Christ. As Paul says follow the traditions handed down whether they are by epistle for oral

    So the Maccabees were pagan now and so are the Jews. Ok you are very studied
