      I was reading a book by Tim LaHaye recently called Revelations Unveiled for a research paper, and he started talking about corruptions that have come into the church in the time of the church of Thyatira(and that's an entirely different discussion), but I was looking at it and noticed that many are still held by the Catholic church.

      What he says is an abbreviated list of the corruptions:
      Worship of saints and angels
      Mass
      Worship of Mary
      Priests dressing differently than Laypeople
      Purgatory
      Worship services in Latin

      Praying to Mary
      Hierarchy of the church(bishops, cardinals, the pope)
      Kissing of the popes foot
      Worshiping images and relics
      Use of "holy water"
      Canonization of dead saints
      Fasting on Fridays during Lent
      Celibacy of the Priesthood
      Prayer beads

      Indulgences
      Bible forbidden to laypeople
      Seven Sacraments
      Ave Maria
      Jesuit order
      Tradition granted equal authority with the Bible
      The Apocryphal books
      The immaculate conception of Mary
      Infallibility of the pope


      I know that many of these have been fixed and many aren't very big deals, but I've put the ones that i really don't understand in bold. It seems none of them have Bibical basis, and many of them seem to hinder the church more than help it.
      Just wondering if there are any people that know more about the Catholic history than me that could help clear this up.

      owned. I went and had the time of my life, made alot of new friends, and got paid for it. How cool is that?!?! and now i have a hard decision to make. Either work at a camp in Hawaii and make alot of new friends, not to mention being in hawaii for a few weeks and gettin paid, or go back to camp Orr. I think i'll work in Hawaii next summer, and the one after that come back to Orr, but i haven't decided yet.

    • The "X" Generation

      12 years ago

      Preacherpres

      I've heard our generation being described as the X generation because we don't seem to be heading anywhere but into destruction. When I step back and look it does seem like that to me as well sometimes.
      BUT this weekend I heard an awesome thing. I've got a friend who said his brother in law has a gift of prohecy (yes, I believe in modern day prophets because the Bible says they exist) and one day his bro in law had a vision. In the vision he saw an X. The X turned up on it's side and became a cross.
      I know that there is a huge change coming in our generation. I'm sick of us being the X generation, and I'm ready for that change to happen and for us to be the cross generation.
      There's only one way that this could happen. We all need to rise up and stand for God. We need to make this change happen. There is a time for peace and a time for war, and the time for war is NOW! Please, listen to what I've said, realize what it means, and help the change come, help our generation to rise up and become the cross generation.

    • Eagle Ceremony

      Last night was my Eagle Scout ceremony (if you say scouts are gay i have a few guys to introduce you to. Both eagle scouts.) Anyway, it was awesome. It was an OA themed ceremony and I got a lot of compliments that it was the best anyone had ever seen. Then I come out of it with $140, one of those little light with carved glass on top thingys, a hand made belt buckle, and a spring assisted open knife that I would guess is worth $50-70. Wow.
      And pray for Takani. He cut himself with rusty metal and is praying he dosen't get tetanus, cause he hasn't had the shot in over 10 years.

    • I'm in a hotel in North Carolina

      Preacherpres

      and i'm bored out of my mind. We're here cause my dad works in furniture, he's retiring soon, this is his last market, and there's gonna be a big dinner honoring him sunday night. It's gonna be a suprise too. He dosen't know that we're in town, he thinks we're still at home.
      They managed to lose my luggage on the plane, which had 2 nice suits in it, along with some other clothes I like. They said it should be on the next flight, which gets in at 11, and they'll ship it to the hotel I'm stayin at. So we'll probly get it at some time between 12 and 1. in the morning. Kinda sucks.
      It's spring break where I live, which has been absolutely awesome. Paintball, movies (300 is awesome), hangin out with friend, and possibly best of all, no puttin up with my asshole teachers. It's been fun, but I gotta go back wednesday. I'll be gettin home from NC on Tuesday.
      I'm gonna get to see P.O.D. soon after I move. I'M SO FREAKIN HAPPY!! I'm definitely gonna save up and buy a backstage pass.
      That's about it...I was just bored and decided to make a journal.

      it was 2000ft long, mostly traversing. opening 500ft were about 5.6 (slab), the first crux was 30ft of 5.9 slab, there was about 500ft of weird sections that are hard to rate, followed by 100ft of 5.5 crack, then 40ft of face climbing at about 5.9. and the final section was 100ft of 5.6 chimney and crack.

      the uncle thats a pig. Yeah I have disowned him. He didnt treat my grandma well and he muches off of everyone. I am creeped out by him! this is strong but if you knew my uncle you would agree. To me he isnt family, hes an unpleasant thought.

      lol you have a point.

      I think I have a good family. There are those members that you want to kick off the family tree, but for the most part.... my family has done alot for me. It has to do with my culture, hispanics are very family oriented.

      But it is important cos az is a top state in auto theft.

    • m3l

      11 years ago

      Exactly!!! Its not like I've made anyone mad, its not like I have a hot car and your jealous, its not like I have a junkie car and its not going to matter!!!!!!!!!!!!

      :( my friend thinks that because they only damaged the passenger door and the antenna, that they bent the antenna to try to break in through the passenger door and when they couldnt they got mad and kicked it. Even if he did get in, the only thing he could do is take the parts of the car cos I dont leave anything valuable in my car, not even my stereo face. ^_^ I am proud of my sound system though, but its useless w/o the face.

      So no mater what the motivation was for this guy there was no reason for him to do it!!!!!! (I say him cos the footprint left on my door is to big to be a girls foot)

    • m3l

      11 years ago

      my car was vandalized yesterday.
      they kicked my door, leaving a huge dent on it ( I mean huge)
      and they bent up my antenna pretty well. :(

      i'm pretty conviced that you can't be liberal and a true Christian at the same time

      Whoo boy. You just insulted at least three people I live with, about a dozen of my other friends and half the people in the P&CE forum in one sentence.

      Give me how you define a Christian. Seems your line of demarkation is a bit far back.

      As for it being a dodge, he avoided giving any age for the earth. It isn't exactly rocket science. It is geology at most.
