Answer these questions:
1. Do you follow Ratzinger the current Pope, and agree with his platform?
2. Do you think that Ratzinger is responsible for hiding the pedophile activity that was committed by priests and bishops under his direct supervision from Rome while he served Karol Wojtyla/JPII ??
3. Do you think that any priests, archbishops, or even cardinals should stand trial for direct pedophilia, or in aiding and abetting those who committed the sexual abuse in various countries around the World.
4. Do you think that it is not criminal for the Vatican to offer the pedophile priests a safety net, and moving them to the Vatican to avoid trial in their local law jurisdictions?
5. Do you consider priests as citizens of the country they were born in, live in, and conduct mass in, or are they citizens of the Vatican alone?
6. Do you feel that all members of the catholic church should be allowed to vote as to who their leaders are and if not, why?
If the answer is no, then explain why the Vatican is such a secretly run organization, one of the richest countries in the World, yet none of you know anything about what goes on there. Why are you so in the dark about an organization and an independent country that the Vatican is?
These are all important questions that must be answered by all catholics, as their church has committed heinous crimes, and simply ignoring them is not any kind of response.

I think that we can all agree, using logic and common sense, that if a small percentage of people commit crimes, then any who share common views with them are also guilty.

"1. I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
2. I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord.
3. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
4. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
5. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again.
6. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
7. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
8. I believe in the Holy Spirit,
9. the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints,
10. the forgiveness of sins,
11. the resurrection of the body,
12. and life everlasting.
What you are thinking of is the Nicene Creed which states the following:
"We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, begotten of the Father [the only-begotten; that is, of the essence of the Father, God of God], Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father;
By whom all things were made [both in heaven and on earth];
Who for us men, and for our salvation, came down and was incarnate and was made man;
He suffered, and the third day he rose again, ascended into heaven;
From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
And in the Holy Ghost."
As you can see, the Apostles' Creed seperates God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit while it is the later Nicene Creed that merges them together into one entity.

Jesus is god
First of all we need to have faith in god and believe each word of the bible. Instead of trying to prove that jesus is god. Let's read these scriptures.
John chapter 10-30 which says; the father and i are one
john chapter 14 verses 8 & 9 phillip said, "lord show us the father and we will be satisfied.' v-9 'jesus replied. 'phillip dont you even yet know who i am, ever after all the time i have been with you? Anyone who has seen me has seen the father. So why are you asking to see him? 'dont you believe that i am in the father, and the father is in me? The words i say are not my own, but my father who lives in me does his work through me.
This may not satisfy you, but i know our father love's us all and none of the words in the bible are wrong, but use your faith in jesus and you will be glorified when you pass away or he returns. I not only believe i know jesus is god because of my faith. Love each and everyone of you, and like i said before, pray for me as i will pray for you. God bless. I am not a preacher just a christian who falls short of the glory of god.

I believe in the 3 in one also and i am of the baptist faith. You have probably seen what i sent to others but you can look up these scriptures and see jesus is god; john ch 10 v 30, john ch 14, v 8 & 9
phillipians ch 2 v 5-8. Love you and god bless.

Jmatchett. We do commit sin's when we let our mind go astray, but we just like the few you talk about that commit crimes, need to ask jesus christ for forgiveness, and we need to turn our life over to him, because he is the only way to heaven, and that is the only place i want to go. Pray for me as i will pray for you. God bless
