As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

      The disdain Catholics have for Scripture never ceases to amaze me.

      But we all know why. Scripture is what proves their sect to be the fraud that it is, so their Masters teach them to have utter disregard for the Word of God....wrapped up neatly in a pretty bow of lip service.

      "Dead letter," right?

          True, that way Catholicism can add it's own beliefs based upon peoples past writings whom all we know about is what they wrote. Of one believes what another one writes as truth with out back up from other sources, then one is able to unknowingly hood wink many after their death, generations down the road. Example would be Obama's words of his wisdom. Believe that and he becomes a great president rather than a great liar. Or the saying, I never inhaled.

            On the contrary, we consider Scripture to be without error. But we don't worship Scripture as
            you do. You consider Scripture equal to God.
            Pray!

              But your own ccc says its a dead letter unless read by and interpreted by your church right? Something Gods word never says.

                that's because it is dead to them. It doesn't teach or support the false teachings of their 'church'. That's why the leaders of the RCC made up it's own 'bible'(the CCC), just like the LDS has its BOM, the words of the religion made up by their earthly leaders.

                "I was changed, redeemed, forgiven before the blood was dry.

                The debt I owed was canceled in the twinkling of an eye."

                  False. Holy Scripture is God's word. From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

                  135 "The Sacred Scriptures contain the Word of God and, because they are inspired, they are truly the Word of God" (DV 24).

                  136 God is the author of Sacred Scripture because he inspired its human authors; he acts in them and by means of them. He thus gives assurance that their writings teach without error his saving truth (cf. DV 11).

                    Absolutely.

                    Something Gods word never says.
                    The Teaching of the Catholic Church, is God's Word.

                    2 Peter 3:15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation;
                    even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto
                    him hath written unto you; 16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them
                    of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which
                    they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures,
                    unto their own destruction.


                    Acts 8:30 And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet
                    Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?
                    31 And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me?....
                    Pray!

                          Add to that the "chicken scratch" post from the other very devout Catholic.

                            1. That's exactly their intention.
                            2. That's why they ran to the Roman Catholic Church.

                              Ok. I disagree that "Scripture is merely a collection of writing on paper" for, inter alia, the reasons already stated.
