i dunno how this got to be a catholic-bashing dealio, but...
early christianity was primarily urban in nature...
& there were 5 "patriarchates" of which rome was only one...
after the first few centuries of its history (during which many "heretics" were eliminated) the christian church(es) moved from a fringe jewish messianic cult to a persecuted minority to an accepted religion of the roman empire (constantine was emperor of the roman empire, seated in greece/turkey, & not in rome)to becoming damned near mandatory for everyone in europe & nearby environs...
the great schism between east & west took place in the late 11th century (over the nature of the person of the holy spirit); the "protestant reformation" got underway during the lifetime of dr martin luther (late 15th & early 16th centuries), a roman catholic (order of st augustine) priest & professor of bible studies at wittenburg university (though there were more lacalized reform movement in europe several years before luther was born)...

all roman catholics are (nominally) christian; not all (nominal) christians are roman catholic...
as to who is REALLY a christian --- well, "by their fruits shall ye know them"...


~
really, calling roman catholic baliefs as far from "mainstream christianity" as satanism is absurd...
RC is one of 3 main groups of Xtianity - eastern orthodoxy, roman caholicism, & the many protestant churches...
(there are others with long histories, & some rather ecent variations so far from "mainstream" as to be considered ummmm not 'zackly christian...)


oy




:thumbup:Ditto. Thanks for the history facts, it was really needed for this discussion.
I just wanted to mention the Cathars in the 13th century. They were the first christian gnostics. I wonder what the world would be if they had become the main christian religion ...

Thanks for that link on the Cathars.
I believe the actual day of the massacre was March 13th, and it was a Friday, hence the lingering 'superstition.' Interestingly, some 5 years ago I awoke on a March Friday the 13h to hundreds of worms - nightcrawlers - that left my yard and headed into the pool to drown. I hosed the hoard back to the lawn, but they kept coming. I've been in this house since '96 and I've never seen that happen before or after. I left for work and when I returned the bottom of the pool was covered with pounds and pounds of dead worms. Let me tell you, that pile of decaying worms smelled worse than a dead animal. Bizarre.

Wow this reminds me i needed to post a topic cause i to have a problem dealing with my personal beliefs.I respect every religion out there, i am nobody to insult someone in believing in something.Well i am raised a Christian but i often find myself not believing. My parents would kill me if they found out i didn't believe in Christianity as much as they do (no really i think they would be more OK with me being gay, which I'm not). I have a friend on here that is a taoist and he said its not a religion its a belief and I'm really interested but I'm still looking for some to believe in. :confused:

What I'm looking for some advice and guidance on the right religious path because i dint consider myself a atheist or a Christian. Also how do i tell my parents I'm not a Christian. :confused:

I'm sorry i could go on and on about talking about religion and beliefs.

Please respond or message me
