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.

  • A Protestant Tours a Catholic Cathedral

    I ran across this, today, and I thought it was very interesting. This is a Protestant who wanted to find out more about the Catholic Church and asked to tour a Cathedral. The priest is very welcoming and gave a lot of good information. The Protestant was also respectful. I did learn things from this video. It is about 30 minutes long but informative.
    "Heretical teachers pervert Scripture and try to get into Heaven with a false key, for they have formed their human assemblies later than the Catholic Church. Pope St. Clement I (88-97)

    The op sounds like the beginning of a joke. Whats the punch line? I'm not watching 30 minutes of a tour through a catholic cathedral, been there done that. I'm sure its full of idols, lots of glitter and smoke, devoid of Christ. So did the sympathetic prot swim the tiber or not? Next.

      Catholic apologists like to pretend those who were once Catholic got instant amnesia when Jesus called us out of the Catholic Church to follow Him. In this case pretending we are unfamiliar with what a Catholic Church or Cathedral looks like on the inside.

      Catholicism's doctrines of demons:

      1TI 4:1 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons,
      1TI 4:3 men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth.

        It's up to you if you want to watch it or not. It is informative. At the end of the show the Protestant apparently made another video, with the priest who took him on the tour, and asked him specific questions concerning the doctrines of the Church.

          1. Judging from what you all say, it is quite evident that you do not know what the Church teaches or why it teaches the way it does.
          2. I posted the video to educate, in a non-combative way, some of the interesting things in this cathedral and how it ties into Christian belief.

            former catholics here do know (other than maybe changes made under Vat II and since then). It teaches what it does because it does not teach the truth of scripture.

            might be interesting to someone who has never been in a catholic church or viewed one in pictures... it has nothing to do with Christian beliefs. It has to do with catholic beliefs. they aren't the same.

              From what they say it is evident that they do not have a grasp of what the Church teaches and why it teaches the way it does.

              It teaches what it does because it does not teach the truth of scripture.
              In other words it does not teach the way in which you interpret the Scriptures.

              ... it has nothing to do with Christian beliefs. It has to do with catholic beliefs. they aren't the same.
              For the first 1000 years Catholic and Christian meant the same thing.
              God bless you.

                Thanks for confirming my statement.

                2. I posted the video to educate,
                No need to. Those who follow Jesus who were once Catholic know Catholicism better than any of their apologists. That is why Jesus chose us.

                    Why cannot he just do it himself? After all, do you not believe that one can just read the Bible and determine what it says?

                      I just visited the cathedral in Sioux City (Iowa) last weekend and loved it. I donít know anything at all about architecture but a well-designed cathedral reflects Godís majesty and holiness, and for me focuses my heart and senses on Godís eternal throne.

                        Something very beautiful can happen when a non-Catholic visits a Catholic church (or a cathedral) - he/she can sense, or perceive, or experience something that they have described to me as "a sense of holiness" - "something holy is here". They want to be quiet there; they want to pray there; they are surprised, and very concerned/interested in learning more about this Catholic belief. We Catholics know what "it" is - it is called the Real Presence. God is there. It IS a holy place.
                        ... For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed;...

                              I went into the Roman Catholic cathedral of St. Patrick's in New York City, and I was impressed by the fact that the Magisterium doesn't have public restrooms in such a major tourist location. I guess there are restrooms, but you have to be a priest or a nun to use them.
