Pope convenes cardinals to discuss leak scandal
Pope Benedict XVI convened a special meeting of cardinals Saturday for advice on how to deal with the Vatican's leaked documents scandal - another sign of the damage the leaks have done to trust in the Holy See's governance.

Benedict was already scheduled to attend a regular meeting of the heads of Vatican offices Saturday morning. The Vatican press office said he added a second meeting later in the day with other cardinals in a bid to try to "restore a climate of serenity and trust" in the church.

The Vatican said over the coming days he will meet with still more cardinals gathering in Rome for a church feast day on Friday to "continue the dialogue with the people who share the responsibility of the church's governance with him." ...

Good morning John. I just wondered if you had been influenced by a parrot close at hand. Parrots are notorious for repeating exactly the same thing over and over again, sometimes for years and years. That's all.

Proving Ground
I don't think you read my post(s) to JY closely enough. So let me 'dialogue' a bit with you.

What does Jesus Christ save people from? and what does He save them to?

That's it from their sins and the fallen nature that loves sin and hates obedience to God's authority.

He does this in the new birth, in regeneration (something that does NOT happen when RCs sprinkle babies either), God writing on our hearts and minds His law, pouring out His love in our hearts by the Holy Spirit (btw This is the love of God that we keep His commandments ) God Himself working in the life of His redeemed both to will and to act according to His good purpose, NOT giving them a license to sin and live lawlessly against Him.

Please do understand Salvation is far more than Forgiveness and going into literal Holy Presence of God when we die, it is a changed life, a life changed by God and for God, a life in which God Himself dwells and obedience is NOT a matter of earning or meriting eternal life, but a matter of JOY in those who know forgiveness of sin and new birth

Mengele was evil. I doubt that Mengele attended Mass regularly while engaging in homicidal activities. It is still a fact that church membership in any church and that includes Evangelical/Fundamentalist Protestant Churches is not required for salvation as nowhere in the Bible is church membership mentioned as being required for salvation.

Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

This is commonly referred to as Lord Acton's dictum. But it is the third phrase in this quote that might be the most important, if little-known:

Great men are almost always bad men.

Most people who quote Lord Acton's Dictum are unaware that it refers to Papal power and was made by a Catholic, albeit not an unquestioning one.

from, Lord Acton it's more rational to take John Y.'s views, he's trying to cover all his bets, but not of course he'll loose everything, Is the One True Church Roman Catholic? So, like we have at many times invited John to become a Christian we would also invite you to try out a good Christian Church one viewpoint being, What to Look for in a Church.

Attending and belonging to a church in a free-standing brick-and-mortar is important because the Bible states do not forsake assembling together for worship. But as important as attending church is it is still not required for salvation. The only thing that is required for salvation is that one embrace Jesus as ones Personal Lord and Savior according to the Bible.

Ahhhhhh John,
But isn't that the point, for years you have told us how you have absolutely NOT embraced Jesus Christ as Lord of your life, refusing obedience to His word, telling us how in your "religion" you are the one who reigns and is in charge, even denigrating OBEDIENCE TO CHRIST in this case what church you attend or not as somehow "totally superfluous".

But hey if your version of 'the sinner's prayer' has made you sovereign over the revealed will of God in His word, the Bible, that has got to be some humdinger of an non-denominational religious incantation.

John Yurich,
The evidence of being born again of the Holy Spirit is the obedience of faith, a life that is holy (faithful and loyal to Christ).
This you cannot claim because you have made yourself the master, the one who calls the shots in your life, not the Lord Jesus Christ who died for your sins.
Please do know this, one cannot rightfully say they are saved from the eternal punishment of hell, until they are first saved by God and for God from their sins, from their rebellion against is rightful authority in every part of our lives.
But hey if a words of a sinner's prayer are a magic formual to give you license for sin go for it.
Either what the Bible states about the only requirement for salvation being that one embraces Jesus as their Lord and Savior is true or it is not true. If it is true then church membership in any church and that includes Evangelical Protestant Churches is totally supefluous then if someone who is Born Again attends the Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodox Church or Mainlline Protestant Churches instead of an Evangelical Protestant Church then they will enter Heaven when they pass away. But you believe that church membership in Evangelical Protestant Church is required for salvation.

John my dear friend, I think you are the poster boy for this truth:

"The Nicodemites viewed idolatry less seriously than Calvin did. "Look at all the social ills — violence, sexual immorality, drunkenness and the like. What is idolatry in comparison to these things?", they said.
Calvin responds:

If one were to pass over them [other sins] lightly, in order to amuse oneself with this one sin of outward idolatry, this would be a bad way to do things. If I were to spare the whoremongers, drunkards, thieves and deceivers, liars and others; were I to pardon avarice, cover over rapine, pomp and pride, being utterly addicted to reprove this one vice of which I am presently speaking, that would be doing badly on my part. And then one might rightly reprove my poor judgment, as if I were leaving many wounds hidden in order to treat one. However, since that is not the case, who will hinder me from reproving each vice in its turn, not neglecting any of them? (p. 80). (John Calvin)

Remember John that you are supporting idolatry.
