Catholics are just weird...which stems from their superstitions.
The only thing "good" about Romanism is them Friday night fish fry's, and having a few belts of "the blood of Jesus," AKA "Ripple," as an "altar boy." Never did like them "Jesus crackers/hosts"-quite flat, w/o butter, jelly.
And your our resident Edward R. Murrow, ain't ya, Mayor? Why don't you head on down to your local city hall, Mayor, and suggest putting slot machines on downtown streets, instead of parking meters? You and your cronies would get a real kick out of that, wouldn't you, squirt?Oh sure! You're a regular Johnny Carson today aren't you fella?
Have you had a few of your Friday night Natty Lights early, saint john?
How the chruch says it is problematic. The RCC says that those who are not Catholic are in imperfect union wit the church and imply that that imperfect union somehow impacts their state of grace. That is wrong. Grace is a gift from God that the church has nothing to do with. I may not be in perfect union with the RCC and I don't care because I am in perfect union with Christ.That's what I've been saying, and what the Church says too, infallibly.
All those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ are individual members of the Body of Christ.
Saying you are in imperfect union with the Church is inseparable from Jesus is saying that a person is in imperfect union with Christ. What does it mean to be in imperfect union with Christ?They're inseparable.
