I despise the Catholic Church because it shuts out the kingdom of heaven against man. Guilt, punishment and condemnation is the focal point rather than God’s love and saving grace. Where’s the joy?
Can you give an example of that because I think your claim is not true.

Hate is a big word, people disagree with the doctrine and dislike the practices that is not the same as hatred
Calling the Catholic Church evil and not of God is just plain hate speech

The fumata was started in 1914, white smoke and a new poop is elected, I’ve seen people cry over that, the election of a new poop.

What is a fumata and why call thew Pope a poop? Very unchristian.

Obviously you do not understand the Woed. of course Jesus is God, now, but He thought it nothing to be a man for time denying Himself. He was born just as you and dI and because of this He no only always had the right to judge us, He also demonstrated earning that right.

God manifested Himself in the form of a man of flesh, temporarily not God. When Jesus was crucified, and resurrected from the dead, His Body began to be glorified. Ergo He told others not to touch Him for He had not yet been glorified.

If the words do not say it loud enough, hear the Holy Spirit. Do not pass on the oppinions of the majority or conclaves or the like. Also, do not correct what others say simply weigh what the content is that you are able to understand. This is nto grammar schoor nor is it the university, it is comprised of real people.
Are you saying that Jesus was not God when on earth?

I recall walking into the foyer of an RCC building, and reading some of the "orders of service". I came across an exaltation of "Regina cielo" which is Latin for "Queen of Heaven". That's idolatry, period.

How can an organization openly engage in blatant idolatry (which is even identified as such in Scripture) and still think they are Christian?

Just, NO.
No it's not idolatry.

Unchristian Jesus turned over tables and made a wipe and swung it, it was not made for a symbolic reason,

Not really we are allowed to hate institutions, I can hate my government if I want to so far anyway, that could change tomorrow.

How about some of you supporting your claims with some evidence?

At the moment they are just unsupported opinions.

Posting on web sites is unbiblical.

The Bible is not a manual for everything we do.

A thin veneer of religious words to cover the true nature of the beast.
Sad but true.
Those at the top they know, the adherents are brainwashed, religion has that effect.
You spout rubbish. How about a serious discussion?

Where in the Bible talks about white smoke is to be used for signally a new preacher pope or whatever the title is supposed to represent.

Then why are you posting hypocrite, you made the thread
Because I don't believe that we can only do what the Bible says.
Perhaps I should have said non-biblical.

And what is wrong with white smoke announcing that a Pope has been elected?
