Its to praise the lord by praying. I should fucking kill you for calling Eucharist "stale bread" Angry All the things you do in this ceremony are to praise the lord in different ways, and to receive the Eucharist. You should go to church at least once a week.

One Guz(Razz) if you actually went to church then you would know that The father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are all in one. If thats you Definition of slavery then your just foolish, God gave us free will, this world, a promise of eternal life/Eternal life( If Eve wasn't tempted) All he asked of us is just talk to him and give him worship. We can do what ever we want and that's the Beauty of it. I expected better of you Gauz

Actually, the Roman Catholic Church (in Europe) did their sermons in Latin up until the mid 1960's.

Church is about sitting down and learning, praying, and celebrating with the eucharist (cuz we're all too lazy to do it on our own). Frankly, it's not that big of a deal to me so long as I learn and pray on my own time.

I don't believe in idol worship.

If god is how the bible shows him, and if he's even worth worshipping, he'll accept humankind as equals and not as lesser beings.

God has an ego, he must be worshiped at all times or else he will send you to a place of eternal suffering beyond your imagination as punishment.

Only if volunteer work for a political party you love is slavery. It's a little more personal than that, but it ain't slavery. Otherwise, Obama would have been the world's biggest slaveowner.

Exactly. That's why a church is needed, one of the reasons.

Right. That money is supposed to go to upkeep of the churches and help for the community. Another thing the Catholic Church got wrong.

If the bible shows you how god truly is, he is a horrible being. He has been show, in the bible, to be a ruthless killing machine with no mercy. He caused the floods which kill millions, potentially billions of lives. He endorses slavery, death to homosexuals, unfair treatment of women, the murder of all gluttons, so on and so forth. There is much more blasphamey in the bible.

What kind of a good message is murder?

What? No they didnt. (I, as ever, am referring to the middle ages)

Educated people did. The middle class spoke anglo-parisian. And the working class, peasants etc spoke middle english. Chaucer wrote a whole bunch about it.

There does not even HAVE to be a hell if God does not want it, but he keeps it so people who don't believe in him can suffer.

Or is your God not powerful enough to destroy it?



Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?

Then he is not omnipotent.

Is he able, but not willing?

Then he is malevolent.

Is he both able and willing?

Then whence cometh evil?

Is he neither able nor willing?

Then why call him God?”

Hey, I don't believe that science is flawed, but I'd like people to come out and admit that they don't have all of the answers a little more often. Not just scientists, but psychologists, evangelists, sociologists...

Well, Catholics generally had a working knowledge of Latin, and there were several attempts to translate the Latin Old/New testament to old English. Hence the King James version.

After selective reading, yes.

He wiped out evil, so that good can survive. Pre-Noah earth was described in a fashion similar to Sodom and Gomorrah.

x Gauz x wrote:He endorses slavery,
If you read Deuteronomy, the Israeli slavery was similar to indentured servitude, where a man could work and be provided for in place of his debts. All terms of servitude were over on the Julibee.
You hear slavery, and you think of Southern slavery. Israeli slavery was much different, with rules for both parties.

x Gauz x wrote:death to homosexuals,
As well as lot of other things. Rules that were meant for the Israelis were repealed upon Christ's death. I'm pretty sure that the reason for the Israeli rules was social engineering, setting the Israelis apart from the rest of the earth. There's some stuff nobody knows.
