GG, All? Seems to me that in the Catechism the Roman Catholics quite conviently erase the 2nd of the 10 Commandments condemning idolatry and split the 10th Commandment against coveting into 2 separate commandments.
There is something quite amiss with the idea of anyone practising an iniquity of those who hate the LORD(idolatry the violating of the 2nd Commandment) with walking humbly with Him.
GG, you or anyone else can read it in context both in Exodus and Deuteronomy.
Michael...because of your level of misunderstanding...I not surprised of any drivel that you might spout...However, I await with amused expectation the day that the RCC becomes responsible for tooth decay, bad breath, and root-rot!
GG, quote Madonna not only ill uses the cross, but also the Christ. That she, who in the past at least behaves like a whore in heat on 'Go Navy Day', stands in for the infinitely Holy Jesus. This is beyond the reach of words to describe. end of quote
GG, I have to think that this is something the RCC also does in her own way in denying the work of Christ as somehow insufficient and incomplete whereby Catholics must have Mass, the RCC sacraments, purgatory and its "saints" to get a person to heaven. And committing whoredom with the kings of the earth while persecuting those who hold that Jesus Christ and Him alone is sufficient for man's salvation.
Madonna not only ill uses the cross, but also the Christ. That she, who in the past at least behaves like a whore in heat on 'Go Navy Day', stands in for the infinitely Holy Jesus. This is beyond the reach of words to describe.
That was, I am sure, a tongue in cheek comment. No, Phil mentioned this on the authority of something that he had read and he was attempting to point to the fatuous thinking of some so called Christians.
I would be very careful before siding with anything that the COE says. Read the fine print over and over again. As they say, the DEVIL is in the detail!
I support the Church of England's criticism of this mess! Isn't Madonna Catholic? If she is, she should be excommunicated. If she's a member of the Church of England, she should also be excommunicated. She is in need of correction, that's for sure....and repentance without a doubt.
JY Why can't you answer my questions.? Is it because your father tells you to try and ignor them. If you were lead by the HOLY SPIRIT as you claim,then you would be able to answer from scriture why your worshipping in a place that HE has ask you to stay in that preaches the doctrine of devils and another Jesus with scripture .
"Christian" nudism is an old problem, I understand some Quakers protested the Puritans by visiting their services naked. There were also assorted communistic sects in colonial America like the Shakers (whence the tune "Simple Gifts" & a furniture style).
Hey what can I say? Madonna desperately needs a career booster so she takes cheap shots at christianity. Her star isn't shining so bright, she is old, saggy and her music is lame. Its funny to see at least she isn't burning crosses again...I give madonna a couple more years and the audiences will force her to retire. Even though alot of people will fall away from Christ others will also seek and find the Lord. Kabala will most likely send her straight to the fires if she doesn't repent of her many sins and accept the Lord Jesus as her savior. If not there is no hope to see her in heaven. Too bad she gave it all up to pursue riches and material things, she is no better than the average neodarwinist.
Hence the "Christianization" of all things unclean and foul in the sight of God. I recall Phil Johnson mentioning on one of his trips to the UK, that in the US you also have "Christian" nudist camps! Attach the label "Christian" to anything you like and you effectively reclaim it for Christ!
Isn't that always the case with those who profess to be tolerant of all things. They cannot see the contradictions in their own position and will only tolerate it until one starts hitting upon their idols or idolatrous ideas
Like the postmodern who says "I don't believe that anyone has to right to be dogmatic or tell anybody else what is right and what is wrong!!"
Perhaps this press release was prompted by a visit from Madonna's publicity team. In any case, it is unsurprising that the CofE, which tolerates every sort of heresy & is thus idolatrous itself, gets worked up over this - strain the gnat, swallow the camel.
Maybe that's the point - say whatever you like, but don't mess with our idols.
