That is correct. Most wars are motivated by greed and power.

Hey, thanks for the comments. I thought I'd make a poll that was just a bit different. I plan on making more polls similar to this so watch for them :).

========== In Reply To ========== Thanks for this thought-provoking poll. A good poll should make you think, and should take more than one minute or so to finish. This poll took me about 10 minutes, as I had to think about the questions so much! I am running out of time in this Internet cafe so I can't make all the comments I want to make. However, I did notice that my answers were somewhat different than the majority. Best wishes to you.

Posted in Catholic Church - Ordination of Women on 2004-05-02 03:02:36

Friend, assuming that such a thing were to happen (hypothetically) the Church would lament that so many of the faithful had apostasized over one Church teaching and would pray for their return before they die and have to face Christ on judgment day having rejected his one true Church.

========== In Reply To ========== A very interesting point. I wonder how the catholic church would react if people, particularly women felt so stongly about the issue that they left the church in droves. You would see ordination of women in a snap. This however is an extreemly unlikely scenerio, the point is that if it hurt the hip pocket of the church you would see change real quick.

This reply will be brief. Your questions, your accusations, and your idiotic interpretation of Scripture having nothing to do with the poll.

========== In Reply To ========== First do you believe a priest should not be married? Two: Do you believe you should not eat meat? Three: And the most inporton question of all. Do you know the LORD JESUS CHRIST as your savor? The doctrin of not marrying or eating meat is the doctrin of deviesls. 1 Timothy 3:2,3 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; 1 Timothy 4:1-6 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having thier conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. If thou put the brethren in remembrance of those things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained. As to your salvation; For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God; Romes 3:23 This means that you and I are sinners. As it is written, There is none righteous, no not one: Romans 3:10 ( not even me!) Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men; for that all have sinned: Romans 5:12 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Roman 6:23 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8,9 All it is saying is you nor I can work our way to heaven. It is a gift, how do you reeive it? Just admint that you are a sinner and need saving, then ask the Lord Jesus Christ to for give you of your sins and to save you, then thank Him. It is that easy. That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man beliveth unto righteousness; and wiyh the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripure saith, whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. Romans 10:9-11 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

The whosoever means any one. Please ask the Lord to save you now; I will be praying for you.

Not true. The Catholic Church does not have a higher percentage of pedophiles. In fact, studies done show the percentage of pedophiles to be about the same in all religions and in all occupations. Also, most pedophiles are married men. The reason the Church is getting so much attention is that the media hates the Catholic Church. Baptist, Lutheran, Anglican, Jewish, and other leaders and teachers and pastors are accused all the time and its often covered up, usually by relatives or persons close to the situation. Its just not as newsworthy as the Catholic Church.

========== In Reply To ========== The poll would have more meaning (not much) if the word Priest was taken out of the questions.

Anyone who abuses a child should be held accountable. It just so happens that the Roman Catholic Church has a higher percentage of paedophiles than most organizations.
