Pelosi Banned from Communion… Finally!

Because those very same Scriptures said Jesus established a church, and that he who heard that church was hearing Him. It's always "the Church" that Jesus talks about, that it will have the power and the proper authority to decide things. He never said that all things were to be just written down and then the individual will be deciding things for themselves. Nope, that was not the plan.

That my friend is a disgusting comparison, and you should apologize. We see the Word of God in the Church, in the Holy Eucharist as He comes to us, and in the Holy Scriptures which is our guide.
I will do no such thing.

no, truth. Christianity is very different than catholicism (of any sect).

Christianity is all about Christ and His word, catholicism is not. catholicism is all about the rcc, its men, false teachings and Mary.
Keep your asinine Baptist theology to yourself.

In other words:

We can't win. When we stand up for the truth--we are evil and bad. When we do not stand up for the truth, we are evil and bad.

You know, you fundamentalists remind me of the Scripture passage: "We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we sang a dirge,
and you did not mourn."
(Matthew 11: 17)

Well, guess what? "Wisdom is vindicated by her actions." (Matthew 11: 19)
You convey your own personal struggle. Study sometime about Paul's standard, and the standard that hopefully God will help each believer in His Son Jesus Christ to maintain both in their personal lives and in their daily struggles and walk with the Lord, because it all begins and ends with Him. Paul took the stance he did because he believed that God is glorified when His truth is made known. Therefore, God is not glorified, then, when His truth is denied, redefined, or compromised.

You bemoan, "We can't win. When we stand up for the truth--we are evil and bad. When we do not stand up for the truth, we are evil and bad." But, nevertheless, God demands that we be concerned about truth - that is objective, universal, knowable truth - not the wishy-washy "your truth versus my truth" concept that has infected our culture and the Church as well.

So the bishops can decide all on their own if and when they will speak out on sin? And deal with it accordingly? I don't think the first century church waited years to decide if an individual should continue to go to church while dishonoring it by their conduct. And in the centuries following the apostolic era you did not want to fall into some serious sin. The rules and disciplinarian actions were sometimes severe and could take a person literally years to be brought back into fellowship. Now a days it seems like in the rcc its tolerance for outright sin is as high as its ever been. Why hasn't Frankie spoken out? He allegedly called Biden a good catholic. Probably Pelosi too. So much for 'take it to the church' huh?
When will the Roman Catholic Church ever learn that they cannot be discerning by making an idol out of tolerance?

God has given man the truth of His Word, and He commands us to guard it and pass it on to the next generation. Frankly, it does seem though like the current Roman Catholic generation is failing miserably in this task. Failure to discern has all but erased the line between biblical Christianity and a careless, carefree faith. The Catholic Church of Rome is filled with doctrinal chaos, confusion, and spiritual anarchy. Few Roman Catholics though seem to even notice because Roman Catholics have been conditioned by years of shallow teaching to be broad-minded, and superficial. Unless there is a radical change in the way RC's view the living truth of God and His Word, the RCC will continue to wane in influence, become increasingly more worldly, and move further and further into the realms of nothing but a foolhardy faith.
What needs to happen if the RCC is going to reverse it's trends and recover a biblical perspective?

that's true

but the rcc doesn't teach His truth so it doesn't know His truth to pass on.

It seems Catholic in good standing, sodomite and pedo/LGBT promoter, Nancy Pelosi, received the Novus Ordo communion in the Vatican today despite her public support for abortion rights that have led to her being barred from receiving Communion in her hometown of San Francisco.

The California Democrat was administered Holy Communion while at St. Peter’s Basilica, according to two witnesses, who told the Associated Press that Pelosi was seated in a VIP diplomatic section of the cathedral.

Pope Francis presided over the Mass — which was held to mark the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul— though the pontiff did not administer Communion to Pelosi. Instead she received it from one of the many priests taking part in the service.

The first thing that you have to do to correct a problem is to admit that you have a problem. In the case of the rcc. they would have to admit that it is wrong. it cannot do that and maintain its allusion of infallibility. therefore the rcc will never be able to recover a biblical perspective. Has it ever had a biblical perspective?
