    What does it have to do with being Catholic?
    He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

      The various themes mentioned in the meme represent some of the reasons I was compelled to enter Christ's one historic Catholic Church fifteen years ago. I thought they might prompt some discussion on the forum. If not, that's fine, too.

        Aren't some of those themes prevalent in Protestant churches?

          You're catholic because you have trouble understanding Paul's epistles

            Sure, some of them, though maybe not in quite the same way. We do agree on some things for sure, thank the Lord.

              I would say that you're NOT Catholic because you have trouble understanding the Scriptures in general, and the historic Christian faith in particular.

                Because you have preferred a lie to the truth.

                Because you seek satisfaction of doing something to attain righteousness to being something....Catholicism with it,s sacraments is something that can be achieved without any inner change taking place

                You believe men rather than God

                You need something to set your eyes upon to worship which is the essence of idolatry

                You wish to abdicate responsibility to somebody else

                  You found it impossible to simply trust your soul to God who is invisible but on the basis of His word alone

                    Good for you, there's nothing wrong with you being Catholic.

                          No one is infallible.

                            Because you have limited mental capacity and are not indwelt by the Holy Spirit.... so you turned to the great satan for your salvation.

                            I guess the funniest part of that picture, is that each image is a figment of someones vivid imagination... much like all of your doctrine and traditions. Not attention to facts and detail whatsoever.

                            Who knew Mary was a European? Who knew Jesus was Greek? (his name was Yashua actually, why did the RCC change his name?).

                            Why were the sacraments and transubstantiation of Mithraism incorporated into Christianity?

                              First, I said that the teachings of Christ's Church are infallible. However, it is also the case that the ordained leadership (that is, body of bishops) of Christ's Church teaches infallibly when it does so in an official capacity. The writers of the biblical documents, for example, were infallible in their New Testament teaching. So there are certain contexts in which human beings have been---and may indeed be---infallible.
