    Platters are an easy way to begin a meal and people can mix around the platter. You can have different styles of platters. I prefer cheese and crackers with things like grapes and quince pate. What do others like.

    The RCs like to say we cannot judge, less we be judged. But it is clear from Paul we are to judge insiders. 1 Cor 5:12+ 12 What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? 13 God will judge those outside. “Expel the wicked person from among...

    RCC tell us

    We are told by some RCs that Mary suffered and how important love is. But actions speak. Parents often suffer when their children have diseases and conditions that cause them suffering for years. Parents suffer when their children have been abused and they suffer with guilt of not hearing...

    Excommunication is the Church’s most severe penalty imposed for particularly grave sins. Through baptism, a person is incorporated into the body of the Church through which there is a “communication” of spiritual goods. By committing a particularly grave sin and engaging in activities which...

    Why are RCs afraid to interpret scriptures for themselves

    I am amazed to see in various threads the aversion by RCs to interpret scripture for themselves and then to follow it. Scripture is clear it is not hard to understand at all. It is written: Deut 30 11 Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. 12 It...

    The Bible can it be trusted?

    Thread after thread we have some RCs throwing doubt on God's word. Question its accuracy etc. by making statements we don't have the originals. The translations are they God's words blah, blah, blah. What is the point of doing so? For a new believer it would be disconcerting, as they would...

    This is the great catch cry of RCC against OSAS is we have freewill. This concept of freewill made me think do we? If scripture is translated correctly in James 1:1, Romans 1:1 the word servant should be translated bondservant. What is a bond servant? He/She is a person who has a choose to be...

    roman catholic unity?

    We are constantly told about our united the RCC is but is it all smokes and mirrors: He said the Catholic parish had been his "home", but he had started to go elsewhere for spiritual nourishment. "[I'm] very well put out really … I can't cope with the teaching of the present moment — it's like...

    I have noticed a lot of posts that show the RCC's bitterness towards those who do the work of the Lord which is revealing the hidden things in the institution. Bible verses about bitterness: Hebrews 12:15 see to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness”...

    The RCC has a poor attitude to the reformers and they are called names like heretics, however, what drove them out of the RCC is never studied by the institution. The Institution was living in sin, it was apparent to people inside and outside the church. Some tried to change it from the...

    Infallible teachings or not both must be honoured.

    No wonder RCC just do not know what is real, they cannot trust the scriptures. The six days of creation can be interpreted as a ordinary week, the day-age view, or the framework view. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, one must “read the Scripture within the living Tradition...

    Bishop of the moon.

    The RCC likes to cover all territories. According to a remembrance written in 2016 by Renae Bennett, Orlando’s diocesan archivist, “During his visit, Bishop Borders mentioned to the pope that he was the ‘bishop of the moon.’ Responding to the pontiff’s perplexed reaction, Bishop Borders...

    1 Cor 5:11

    1 Cor 5:11 But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people. This verse is clear, it is easy to understand and it can...

    Why does the RCC ignore scripture?

    The more we discuss the beliefs of the RCC institution, the more I am made aware of how they pick and choose which verses they want to follow. They ignore anything which means they did to take action against sin. A fine example of this is: 1 Cor 5:11 But now I am writing to you that you must...

    Biden Catholic is able to receive communion

    Is Biden going to be refused communion? President Joe Biden's pro-choice stance pushes U.S. Catholic bishops closer to a formal rebuke of him as they approved the drafting of a "teaching document" which will include a scolding of Catholic politicians that go against Church teachings, the...

    Shortcuts and helps

    What shortcuts do you use? They can make cooking easier and quicker. Mine is frozen pastry but it is not the same. Not as tasty. I mean I use it for things like empanadas. I also use won ton skins for pierogies.

    Symbolic figure of speech

    The bible is full of figures of speech - symbolic, personification, metaphor, simile, hyperbole, parable, allegory, literal and analogy. I mean we are told to discern the fruit, it does not mean literal fruit. Galatian 5 Jesus says he is the door. John 10 The Holy Spirit is a dove. Mark 1...

    It appears a poster would love to discuss trinity: He wants the RC origin of the word and his first post on the topic is: It seems to me that both Protestants and Catholics share beliefs based on tradition (creeds) and speculation. For example no bible writer teaches three persons are the one...

    Whose will?

    In another thread an RC poster tries to justify the changes made by Vat 11 by the following: A point to consider: Moses allowed men to divorce their wives. Jesus said it was due to the hardness of their hearts and from the beginning it was not so . This shows that God honored the authority he...
