Funny how you go with what the church says, up until you stop liking what the church says. What was it about the recent popes not being 'real' popes, because they said things you don't agree with?

Well, aside from being heretics, hippocrits, and committing blasphemy, I don't agree with them.

Bible verse please. I don't recall 'servile' being specified.

not specified in bible, but it was in a council

the church tells you to respect other people. and yet....

How the hell am i not respecting you?! Do you guys come on here to gossip or sing together? I'm like the only one giving the arguments.

showing off your ignorance here?
knowing it. seeing all of us using it. we ask you a hundred times to use it. and still not using it. why? you wanna be special or what?

Maybe I just like the look of italicized more, huh? lol

WTF, you do that on a sunday?

Yes

it's a resting day you mor..

what's a mor?

everytime i think ive seen your edge, it seems you can step over it.
doing those things in a real christian community will get you kicked out of said community. if not then that whole community are a bunch of hypocrites.
and you said you had knowledge of you own believe? you even got your own believe wrong.... OMG.

Lol...atheists... don't you DARE try to teach me about my own religion.  The church clearly states servile labor as things done NOT for recreation, which those are.

Another interesting note is that the Sabbath isn't observed on Sunday by all religions. Some have a Saturday Sabbath. Which does make some sense considering Sunday is the first day of the week and God's day of being lazy was supposedly the last day of the week.

I'm not a ki...I mean a Jew, so the Sabbath is on Sunday, which the church CLEARLY stated.

Alright, let's avoid typing parts of words such as "mor..." and what not. Nobody is fooled when they hear "What the *beep*" on T.V., nobody will be fooled here either.

Actually, I think Knight might have somewhat of a point.

Question, does the Christian religion vary church to church? Does the religion vary person to person? How much variation is allowed within the Catholic faith?

What specific beliefs are allowed to vary? Is it okay for some Catholic churches to allow their members to eat meat on Friday? Is it okay for some Catholic churches to ban almost all labor on Sunday, such as cooking and driving? Is it okay for some Catholic churches to preach that evolution and God go hand in hand?

Or is there only one correct way in which one can properly be a Christian? A way in which there are strict rules that can not be negotiated?

Yep, that's why I rarely nitpick over individual beliefs and preferences unless they're not supported by (or in contradiction to) the religion's source material. When someone says the words of a committee/council/group/individual outweigh the supposed words of their God and they repress/ignore/lack the cognitive dissonance that one would expect with such a statement, there's no real point in arguing any further.

And yet, Sabbath isn't on Sunday for Jews. It might be for you, but if you're not going to accept the fact that the day they observe it is divergent for when your faith observes it, the you cannot reasonably expect then to accept you as well.

Something which you clearly need to learn in the course of your life.

Lol...atheists... don't you DARE try to teach me about my own religion.  The church clearly states servile labor as things done NOT for recreation, which those are.

Then don't try to teach us why you think evolution is wrong, because that's our realm of knowledge to handle. Recognise and comprehend the hypocrisy displayed on your part here?

Yes. My church tries to bring science into the gospel. It's actually pretty interesting, and it isn't that nonsensical "accept what we tell you because scientists are morons" garbage. This week (mass is held Saturday night) we discussed why gay marriage is natural and nonthreatening. Twas awesome.

Is it okay for some Catholic churches to preach that evolution and God go hand in hand?

Well, my church apparently thinks it's okay. The minister has a Master's in Religious Studies and Biology, so FTW!

I hate to be like that, but I must insist on my question form the previous page, which I'd like at least someone simulating some kind of reflection before KD polarises again all the discussion into the off-topic with his... points.

the church tells you to respect people. he doesn't tell you to specifically respect me.

you dont respect people in general.
you say your a racists so you have no respect for people from other races.
the same go's for woman you have no respect for woman either.

Maybe I just like the look of italicized more, huh? lol

use the quote and it's still italicized..... and you could see that if you readed our posts.

Lol...atheists... don't you DARE try to teach me about my own religion.  The church clearly states servile labor as things done NOT for recreation, which those are.

come live in a christian community around here and you will see that if you even hop on a bike on a sunday that everyone will look at you like WTF? and the week after you will be banished from the community. you can't do a thing on a sunday. you may only rest...

thats what your church is preaching over here.
plz. explain to me why your god gives different rules to different people of the same religion?

I must insist on my question form the previous page

we'll make it follow him?

"what does it mean if you feel betrayed by the one entity that supposedly gave us those values and morals? Does it mean you also feel betrayed by your morals? Can you, as a believer, hold the set of morals given to you by your holy book, without worshiping the deity that gave it to you?"

Considering how closed off you are to learning anything I don't think that's a problem.

I take it this is the question and would be interested in hearing an answer myself.

"As I expanded on above, what does it mean for your morals if you feel betrayed by the entity which you believe gave you those morals. Feeling betrayed does not imply losing faith, so we stay within theistic boundaries. Does it mean you are doomed to become evil? Or can you perpetuate your adherence to the same morals?"
