    snooop,
    Facts and truth matter to many of us Christians, but some are too much like Adam to put down the apple and consider them. Let’s pray.

    God bless.

    Achi, Yet there may be a point you haven’t considered. As Catholics we believe the Holy Spirit guides the election of each Pope because God leads and guides our Church. It’s not by man’s efforts, but the Holy Spirit’s charismatic gifts, that the Pope and Magisterium can define dogma and make infallible decisions.

    So, knowing the Holy Spirit is in charge of who the pope is, Catholics should comfortably trust that God is in charge, He has a plan and a purpose for Francis.

    Francis has already said he won’t be pope long. He would agree with your prediction. As for the reason, only God will know but abuse of office will be a hard case to make with this pope.

    walkintruth,
    I could address each of those concerns Biblically if you want because I assume your pastor (or person who lured you into the religion you are in) said all teachings have to be in the Bible. It’s just that the Bible says they don’t have to be in the Bible. defect in your lure’s credibility.

    Did he also say who interprets the Bible? Catholic Man interprets X, Pentecostal woman interprets Y. Same Bible. who’s right? How do you know? Are there many truths? defect defect defect in lure’s credibility

    I assume you use Luther’s Bible, is that correct? So you are Lutheran? If God gave him the authority to compile a new Bible after 1500 years of Christianity (aka Catholicism) why would Jesus deny Luther the gift of interpretation? defect

    Which denomination do you belong to that holds the truth, the whole truth, the Paraclete guiding it, against which the gates of hell won’t prevail? Who holds the keys to the kingdom now? Why don’t all Christians know who?

    If you are not Catholic, why do you comment on the Pope? You sit in judgment and criticism of him, but what is he to you if just a man with no more authority than your pastor, except in another religion?

    What gives you insight into the Pope’s soul to know he is only pretending to care about the poor?

    I hope you provide more substance to your reasons for leaving Jesus in the Eucharist.
    Visit CatholicAnswers.com to look up your objections to the faith you left. And pray. Be not afraid to. Or you’ll know you’re in the wrong.
    God bless.

    Zip,
    First, what Freun says about Walkintruth’s knowledge of the Church is the precise hope for God’s mercy that walkintruth clings to, whether she is aware of it or not. For those who knew the truth and committed apostasy, will be judged by what they have done. So, if anything Freun is proverbially “throwing her a bone.”

    Secondly, Freun is simply stating a truth expressed by every revert to the Church. They didn’t know what they left. It’s data, not an insult. If walkintruth proudly states she knew all the Church taught – the Catechism, the Eucharist, Soteriology, Jesus’ Church, and still left, she condemns herself. Nothing Freun says is as dangerous as that, yet your reaction is not to care for her eternal soul but to encourage a person whose religion you probably don’t share.
    After all, is walkintruth’s pastor 100% right or is yours? They can’t both be right.

    Thirdly, Freun offered a merciful intercession for walkintruth to our Lord.

    Fourthly, Freun evangelized walkintruth, letting her know she probably doesn’t know what she walked away from and to come home.

    Fifthly, Gita prayed for her.

    Sixthly, Freun consoled our Eucharistic Lord who yearns for walkintruth’s return.

    How you see only hate speaks more about your lens than your victims. Your words don’t offend, we are used to it, but this is for walkin’s sake, to discern who wants her in the sheepfold and who rejoices that she invented her own path as though the Bible calls that sound teaching.
    May God have mercy

    Making out, Jesus describes the sin of marrying a divorced person: “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her; and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery” (Mark 10:11–12)

    Without an annulment a man commits adultery against his wife, to whom, in the eyes of God, he is still married. Therefore the second wife, too, commits adultery by being with a married man.

    The Church protects such people from receiving the Eucharist unworthily, because to receive the Eucharist while in mortal sin drinks judgment upon himself or herself as St. Paul teaches. The Church is a merciful, protective Mother for her children. What mother marches her children to the edge of hell and says, “don’t worry about sinning against God, don’t worry about what Jesus said, do what you wan”t? A good mother reprimands, protects, guides her children so that they may have eternal life with the Father.

    There may be a way to come back into full communion with the Church. Go see your priest. Visit CatholicsComeHome.org because you are not alone.
    God bless.

    God bless.

    brotherhood, that’s a new one. What year did that doctrine get thought up?
    Please point to historical evidence.

  • [3] August 6, 2015 at 9:13am

    Brotherhood –

    Our Lord instructed people to practice and observe whatever the scribes and the Pharisees tell you because they “sit on Moses’ seat”

    You have an opportunity to apologize to oathkeeper and all Catholics, but don’t worry about us, apologize to Jesus for telling him his teaching is from Satan.

    Lord, have mercy on us.

    Cosmos102,
    I’ll adjust a few answers if you don’t mind. There aren’t other “denominations” in the Catholic Church, and Jesuits (Society of Jesus) are not a denomination. Jesuits are an “order.”

    Many people look upon Jesuits as “rogue” and certainly those who teach anything other than orthodoxy are, just as it would be for any other Catholic to do so. Not only that, they violate the old oath of the Jesuits which is to teach only orthodoxy in loyalty to the Church when they teach against the Church. When the order was formed, the Jesuits were one of the orders to become well known as effective, intelligent and spiritual defenders of the faith against the heresies cropping up in the 16th Century. So, some with weak positions demonized them because the truth was a threat to them, and that reputation has stuck. Some tactics never change.

    The problem with leftist priests is less Jesuit and more 1960s. Between the changes of Vatican II which were poorly understood and wrongly implemented, and the sexual revolution, and an all around cultural decline in America (recreational drugs, the birth control pill, free love, Marxist influences in universities, a spoiled baby boom generation) heterodox priests can be found anywhere if you look hard enough. That is why we Catholics are grateful that Holy Mother Church is protected from error. Individual clergy can teach it, but the Magisterium will not. The Bridegroom protects his Bride.

    Hi, hi,
    We don’t ignore it, we understand properly. When Jesus asks Cephas three times to feed his sheep, he isn’t asking Satan to do so.

    If you have problems with Jesus’ role for Peter, your problem is with Jesus not just His Church.
    God bless.

    when you figure out whom Jesus gave the authority to decide what teachings are false and which teachings are true, remember, you can find Reconciliation and Mass times at Masstimes.org.

    The sin the Pope is talking about is remarriage without an annulment or death of spouse. Your divorce has been/will be forgiven if you sought Reconciliation with God and His Church! You may have grounds for an annulment. See your priest.

  • [9] August 5, 2015 at 1:41pm

    Communion means “in union with” Jesus and His Church.
    You can’t be in union with Jesus if you commit adultery daily and have no intent, will, or desire to change.

  • [5] August 5, 2015 at 1:39pm

    Divorce is forgiven.
    It’s the remarrying and remaining in what Jesus calls an adulterous relationship that is the problem.

  • [2] August 5, 2015 at 1:39pm

    Why?
    What is it you think Pope Francis said?
    They can attend Mass, be active members and raise up their children as Catholics. This is a reason to leave the Church Jesus founded and the Eucharist?

  • [10] August 5, 2015 at 1:38pm

    Speed,
    Because the sin is ongoing as long as the second marriage remains intact.
    Killing then repenting, the sin is finished.
    Does that help?
    Jesus says to divorce and remarry is adultery. It’s adultery committed every day. A person can’t confess and repent what they have no intention to stop. Remember the act of contrition? A remarried divorcee would have to lie to Jesus’ face to say that. Commiting yet another sin. It’s not the right of the Church to change what God has ordained. Some man-made religions have, but not revealed religion.

    ConsChristian, You can’t be more wrong about the Pope and the Papacy.
    That aside, God not not change his mind. Catholics agree. Name the denominations that holds to Jesus’ teaching on divorce and remarriage.

    No one will hold their breath waiting for that answer.

  • [3] August 5, 2015 at 1:32pm

    Cavallo, lack of charity amidst detraction and calumny. Catholics are to admonish the sinner – consider yourself admonished. Turn away from that, brother.

  • [1] August 3, 2015 at 8:27am

    Willow, you have well articulated the Catholic position. Are you Catholic?
    I agree with all you have said.

    [I support hunting to feed and clothe the family, and it is no sin to eat animals, but to enjoy bringing death to a living creature makes man not higher, but more base. That's why these abortionists seem so base to us. They believe the evil they do is good and in that way they enjoy it. If a lion were attacking a village, I'd be the first one to stop it. Because vicious lions are attacking innocent children, I'd be the first to vote to stop the money flow to them.]

    Why don’t adults who care so much about science, and so little about human life, donate their own neural tissues?
    Do we see you raising your hand to volunteer?
    Didn’t think so.

    Marjory
    True and historic Christianity and Catholicism are synonymous. The word Catholic describes the fullness of faith taught everywhere, and already in the first century served as a differentiating term from false versions of Christianity that had cropped up and that continue to crop up even today.

    Remember many heretics were claiming to be Christian – followers of Arius, Gnostics…

    But there was one place where the truth of the Apostles was handed down, where the Sacrifice of the Mass was, where the Real Presence was, and still is – then as it always will be until the end of the age: The Catholic Church.

    Don’t believe me, see what the early Church fathers said.

    “…as these teachers [heretics] who are destitute of truly divine wisdom maintain; while the Catholic Church possesses one and the same faith throughout the whole world, as we have already said.” Irenaeus, Against Heresies, 1:10,3 (A.D. 180).

    “Let no man do anything connected with the Church without the bishop. Let that be deemed a proper Eucharist, which is [administered] either by the bishop, or by one to whom he has entrusted it. …. Wherever the bishop shall appear, there let the multitude also be; even as, wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church.” Ignatius of Antioch, Epistle to the Smyrneans, 8:2 (c. A.D. 110).
