Christian - Catholics have left the true teachings of Jesus and have become like what the Bible says "Having a form of Godliness but denying the power thereof......

Atheist - No, Catholics are Christians. Who are you to decide who is or is not a Christian?

Christian - I'm not deciding. The Bible is.

Atheist - But by whose interpretation?

Christian - The Bible is its own interpreter. One verse interprets another.

Atheist - Baloney. Catholics are Christians.

Atheist - You Christians should be ashamed!

Christian - The Catholic Church should be ashamed. Not Christians.

Atheist - O ho! Now you want to distance yourself.

Christian - Christians have been distancing themselves since before 1517, when we rejected the heresy that salvation could be bought with money as the Catholic Church teaches.

Atheist - Noooo. All you Christians are pedophiles! I found a video condemning the Catholic Church but I'll send it to ALL Christians as they are all the same.

Christian - So when we reject Catholic teaching, you say we cannot, but when those same teachings prove disastrous, you condemn those who do not believe or practice them? The concept of fairness is a challenge for you it seems.

Christians snarl at one another privately, and at non-Christians publicly. No Christian can tell independently who adheres to dogma. Christian leaders cozy up to political leaders and evade moral and intellectual accountability for ignorance and error. Christians claim full credit for benefits if a Christian was ever involved, but do not accept cruel and ignorant traditions as contributing to any exercise of Christian cruelty or injustice.

Catholics are absolutely Christians. It is Protestants that have rejected some of the truth (depending on which flavor of Protestant they are).

Saying a book can interpret itself is pure nonsense. Interpretation requires intellect.
If that was the only issue, then vote moderation could be avoided more often, since a vote in which the voter does explain sufficiently how at least one point a debater made swung their vote, would be considered sufficient. -Airmax

Oh sorry. I was about to respond to your post and then saw that you are playing some imaginary game. Carry on.

What book do you use as the basis of that cult?
Is it the bible of the Catholics?

Hey Desmac, See?

And no, I didn't set him up to do that. We aren't working together.

The Catholic Church is not Catholics. Do you live at the Vatican?

It is Protestants that have rejected some of the truth ......

We have never worshiped Mary, a human being,
Sold "salvation for money
Decreed that slavery was Godly
Covered up abuse of little kids
placed homosexual in our clergy
instituted non-biblical doctrines. Purgatory ring a bell?

Saying a book can interpret itself is pure nonsense.

It is actually 66 books.
2Pe 1:20 - Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

2Pe 1:21 - For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

You take a verse or concept, and see what the rest of the Bible says about it. No private interpretation needed. That way we avoid errors like, say, baptizing infants. If you knew your Bible, you would know that.

Interpretation requires intellect.

The Bible is the product of an intellect. A living intellect. If you believed your Bible, you would know that.

I believe the Bible. I just don't accept your private interpretation of it.

It is your right to call it my private interpretation. So I will rest knowing my doctrine did not teach that one could sell God's salvation for money, or that one could pray for people already dead. My doctrine did not produce homosexual pedophiles who were then swept under the rug and protected by the church leaders. My church has not been sued in courts all over the world. My church, unlike your pope, did not issue a document saying that slavery was ordained by God.

If your doctrine is so right, how come your church has been so wrong?

Atheist - (Illogical rant about there being no evidence for God)

Catholics are absolutely Christians.

The Catholic Church is not Catholics. Do you live at the Vatican?

It is Protestants that have rejected some of the truth ......

We have never worshiped Mary, a human being,
Sold "salvation for money
Decreed that slavery was Godly
Covered up abuse of little kids
placed homosexual in our clergy
instituted non-biblical doctrines. Purgatory ring a bell?

Saying a book can interpret itself is pure nonsense.

It is actually 66 books.
2Pe 1:20 - Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

2Pe 1:21 - For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

That's exactly what Protestants do NOT Catholics. The Catholic Church CORPORATELY interprets it, not as individuals. Private interpretation is done by an individual.

You take a verse or concept, and see what the rest of the Bible says about it. No private interpretation needed. That way we avoid errors like, say, baptizing infants. If you knew your Bible, you would know that.


Nowhere does the Bible say it interprets itself.

Infant baptism is thoroughly biblical.

Interpretation requires intellect.

The Bible is the product of an intellect. A living intellect. If you believed your Bible, you would know that.


I believe the Bible. I just don't accept your private interpretation of it.

It is your right to call it my private interpretation. So I will rest knowing my doctrine did not teach that one could sell God's salvation for money,

That was never a doctrine of the Catholic Church.

or that one could pray for people already dead.

That is thoroughly biblical.

My doctrine did not produce homosexual pedophiles

No doctrine has done this.

who were then swept under the rug and protected by the church leaders.

No doctrine allows for this.

My church has not been sued in courts all over the world

Your church probably isn't all over the world, so that's not a fair comparison. But I should ask, what protestant denomination do you belong to?

. My church, unlike your pope, did not issue a document saying that slavery was ordained by God.

The Catholic Church has never had a doctrine approving slavery.

If your doctrine is so right, how come your church has been so wrong?

It hasn't been.

Finally, since you are the one making the positive claim concerning my Church, any burden of proof would be on you to produce any documentation/evidence.
If that was the only issue, then vote moderation could be avoided more often, since a vote in which the voter does explain sufficiently how at least one point a debater made swung their vote, would be considered sufficient. -Airmax

You go be happy with a church and doctrine which requires nothing of you. Even God gives people the right to be lukewarm.

You're right; I am selective. I only stick to what ACTUALLY happened. I reject the revisionist history invented by anticatholics.

Basically, I presume you are unable to support your claims. I challenge you to show me otherwise.

No Sir, I respectfully decline your challenge. That would be like a challenge from an ISIS member asking me to show that ISIS are murderous swine.

I don't think "showing it" is needed.

The only thing showing here is your anti Catholic bigotry. Comparing our doctrines to the actions of ISIS is outrageous. But to be candid, I'm not surprised you're declining my challenge. It is my experience that bigots are full of venom, but lacking when it comes to providing evidence.

There are some 40,000 denominations of Christians. The Catholics are the largest and with over a billion followers are equal in size to all the other denominations combined. They have controlled Christianity for over 1600 years. They must be pleasing God to remain so powerful.

Meaningless sentence is meaningless.

No, but in all seriousness, that is really retarded. Beyond retarded. According to your logic, the sinking titanic is better than a lifeboat because it's bigger. Or Russia is better the USA because it's bigger. Or a bison's brain is better than a human brain because it's bigger.

Your logic is stupid AF.

Atheist - (Illogical rant about Westboro Baptist Church)

Christian - Westboro Baptist have left the true teachings of Jesus and have become like what the Bible says "Having a form of Godliness but denying the power thereof......

Atheist - No, Westboro Baptist are Christians. Who are you to decide who is or is not a Christian?

Christian - I'm not deciding. The Bible is.

Atheist - But by whose interpretation?

Christian - The Bible is its own interpreter. One verse interprets another.

Atheist - Baloney. Those bigots are Christians.

Christian - Ok, I'll get out of your way and go be logical over there. God bless.

Atheist - (Illogical rant about there being no evidence for God)

I'm an atheist and I have to agree, Catholics aren't Christian.
There are some 40,000 denominations of Christians. The Catholics are the largest and with over a billion followers are equal in size to all the other denominations combined. They have controlled Christianity for over 1600 years. They must be pleasing God to remain so powerful.

Oh yes, because the biggest are always the best! Logic 101 right here!

Big is always better except in the world of the small and insignificant to which you belong.

"World of small and insignificant to which you belong"

Meaningless sentence is meaningless.

No, but in all seriousness, that is really retarded. Beyond retarded. According to your logic, the sinking titanic is better than a lifeboat because it's bigger. Or Russia is better the USA because it's bigger. Or a bison's brain is better than a human brain because it's bigger.

Your logic is stupid AF.

Think big ideas, big visions , big improvement, big goals. You cannot because you are small brain, small minded, small everything.

Christian - Some are, but the "Church" itself is no longer following Christ

Atheist - You don't get to decide. Catholics are Christian.

Atheist - You Christians should be ashamed!

Christian - The Catholic Church should be ashamed. Not Christians.

Atheist - O ho! Now you want to distance yourself.

Christian - Christians have been distancing themselves since before 1517, when we rejected the heresy that salvation could be bought with money as the Catholic Church teaches.

I'm small minded when you honestly suggest that big = better? Don't make me laugh.

Hitler had a big vision of a Jew-free Europe, which he also thought was a big improvement.

Islam also has big goals of conquering and destroying the modern world. So did communism at one point.

Big =/= better. Full-f*cking-stop.
