    The Papacy

    Exactly. What Christian would not want to be in the church Jesus started? Here we have in the 3rd century evidence of the Catholic, or Universal Christian Church. It wasn't a Baptist church, it wasn't a "Temple of the Lord " church, and it wasn't Lutheran or Episcopalian. It was the good old...

    Absolution in the message

    Obviously. Same low price though.

    Absolution in the message

    Going to a priest is more than just confessing one's sins. My wife had problems with my father who lived with us and she received some very good guidance from our priest on how to deal with him.

    Sola Scriptura

    No they weren't. As proof we have the scriptures themselves and the letters to these local churches where they were told how they were messing up and they had better get with the correct program, the correct program as defined by them - the ecclesiastical authority.

    Sola Scriptura

    It is both. In this world there are institutions and the church is one of them and that is why Jesus started "a church". He did not just write a book that everyone would read and then try to figure out themselves.

    Could Transubstantion be true?

    What you posted has no validity in the Christian world. It is YOUR opinion because of YOUR bad interpretation of the scriptures. The preponderance of evidence sides with orthodox teaching, not with the teachings of men who started their own sects some 1500 years down the line.

    Could Transubstantion be true?

    Of course! They never sin or run afoul of Jesus's commands either. Yeah right. We know that isn't true as we see violations of God's words here daily.

    Despite having faith in Christ

    And what makes your sect a "Christian" sect?

    Despite having faith in Christ

    Perhaps your sect leaders aren't either.

    Could Transubstantion be true?

    Yes, Christ is who sustains us, both spiritually and literally via the Holy Sacrament of Communion.

    Could Transubstantion be true?

    Only in your opinion is it an "undoubted metaphor". To billions of orthodox believing Christians around the world it isn't. For over 2000 years the two major Christian faith's (The Latin Rite and the Eastern Orthodox) have taught this to be the truth, the truth about a Christian dogma that comes...

    Sola Scriptura

    It is a Protestant concoction. It denies many of the traditions that were established during the first 1500 years of Christianity and relegates the authority of the One Universal (Catholic) Christian Church to being a minor player in the Christian faith.

    The War Erupting and Expanding Within Catholicism.

    Of course they do. They sit in judgement of the pastor, find him in error and then run out and start their own church.

    Repetitive Prayer

    Which of course is something that is impossible for you to determine - you cannot know what is in a person's heart, not in the heart of a person who worships in a Catholic Church, or a person who is sitting in the same pew as you worship in your church. Only Jesus/God can know this.

    Despite having faith in Christ

    The scandal within the Catholic Church is the persons reason for living. Every day it is get up, jump on the computer, and bring up the scandal again, and again, and again. Constructive conversation CANNOT be had with some of these folks.
