    Do catholics worship God or the pope?

    2000 years of things like this video below tell a slightly different story. What you need to know is that in the very early days of the church both Marys were massively popular - Mary the Mother of Christ and Mary Magdelene. But old society was also sexist and patriarchal and therefore females...

    about the baker who lost business when sued by "gays"

    Yes, I completely agree. The biggest arguments and resistance I'm seeing in this thread are those looking to the words and acts of the apostles rather than what Jesus did and said. Time and time again Jesus did the exact opposite of what the faithful Jews thought he would and should. Like when...

    Do catholics worship God or the pope?

    You're talking the history of the church, not the catechism. And schisms are nothing new. Germany is on the verge of another Schism over gay marriage. And your view on Catholics being Bible ignorant is so 1876 🤣 The catechism is the belief system of the church and it's their interpretation of...

    Do catholics worship God or the pope?

    Okay, Mary specifically, no there is not It's ancient church tradition and you will find evidence of right back to the oldest known churches and tombs. And then there's the very long history of her appearing to Christians to guide them in their walk with Jesus that goes right back and is...

    I think my personal take out from all this is don't be a baker 🤣

    Do catholics worship God or the pope?

    Okay, let's unpack this YES Satan does imitate and impersonate heavenly messengers. One must pray to the holy spirit for discernment if one thinks they've had a heavenly encounter. Mary would NEVER ask someone to fast to the point they need hospitalisation. So either your poor neighbour was...

    about the baker who lost business when sued by "gays"

    Well, if the post above yours is correct and the couple requested a satanic themed cake, the Baker is either a complete idiot, or he really hates gay people. Refusing to make a cake with Satanic theming is ungodly and therefore in complete unison with what you've been suggesting in regards to...

    about the baker who lost business when sued by "gays"

    Paul writes in Galatians 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” Peter also addresses the Christian’s relation to government in writing, “Show proper respect to...

    Do catholics worship God or the pope?

    Yes you would. Because God the Father is the supreme ruler of Heaven and Earth. And yes, they should pray to God the Father, the Holy Spirit and Jesus. But you would feel comfortable asking a Christian friend to pray for you right? I've already stated multiple times that Jesus is Lord and...

    Do catholics worship God or the pope?

    Let me ask you a two part question. A) Do you ask your Christian brethren to pray for you? B) If you answered yes to the above, who do these people pray and submit to?

    about the baker who lost business when sued by "gays"

    You have me all wrong. I never spoke of the Baker's intent. I mentioned that he would have unknowingly sold food to gay people and had no problem with it. You then mention other cakes her won't make. That's his call and a Halloween cake is not covered by anti discrimination law. Jesus also...

    As one would with anyone who acts in a manner that defiles the house of God.

    Do catholics worship God or the pope?

    Wow. Where on earth did you get that idea from? Mass is held daily within the Catholic church, not weekly like in many others. Furthermore mass has three main components; 1) Reading passages from the Bible - 2 lots, usually from both old and new testaments. 2) Homily (the old fashioned...

    about the baker who lost business when sued by "gays"

    I'm just going to add one little thing to this amazing litany. How many times do you think gay people have been into this bakery, in secret without identifying themselves and purchased all manner of culinary delights? The baker was happy to take their money then. It's only because they...

    about the baker who lost business when sued by "gays"

    May Jesus bless you richly. Your wisdom is deep 😃 Let me tell you something practical I know from personal experience, knowing some gay people. They already know what Christianity teaches and thinks. The message has been delivered and received loud and clear. They also carry the belief that God...

    Do catholics worship God or the pope?

    All I'm going to say on this subject is that the early church was chaotic. They couldn't even agree on which writings were correct and the collection of books at now know as the new testament weren't even agreed upon until 500 years after Jesus. Furthermore other, non RCC ancient churches -...

    Do catholics worship God or the pope?

    There was conflict between Peter and Paul in those first days of the church and there are writings from other Apostles that did not make it into what we now accept as the new testament. For instance, the Orthodox (not RCC) church has an extra book, the Gospel of Thomas. (Thomas the doubter)...

    Do catholics worship God or the pope?

    And the Holy Spirit helps men to organise mundane things. And organise grouping of talents and resources. And yes, there are chosen leaders among them. If this were not the case then there would be no churches, no Bibles, no pastor, no Bishop. And that is how Peter is the rock. He was the first...

    Do catholics worship God or the pope?

    Agreed. But correct me if I'm wrong, the Holy Spirit has never built a single church building or printed a single Bible without the help of the hands of man Sorry, I'm replying from my phone and I messed up the reply in the last post
