The late D.

Yada, yada, yada.....
You are so blind that you'd rather believe fallible men and not the bible. Says it all, I think!

Only true believers can worship silly, and since Catholics do not believe in justification by faith alone, they cannot be true believers. As for whom THEY worship as unbelievers. only your ignorance blinds you from seeing that it is not the true God, but a god of their own fashioning.

I guess you're being nice to the Papal antichrist Jim? Vogan goes on to remark...
"How then may the current Pope continue to deny such a statement of the Churchâ€™s official teaching? It can be done only by the Jesuitical distinction that he makes between his official and private views (despite the fact that his books are all marketed with 'Pope Benedict XVI' more prominently displayed than his real name). Despite the seemingly-binding nature of the new Catechism, some point to the fact that it was not prepared by a full Council and are able to take some refuge in Ratzingerâ€™s comments that the Catechism seeks to leave debated questions as open as possible. Ratzinger also views doctrinal formulations as having an 'infinitely broken nature' in 'manâ€™s continual effort to go beyond himself and reach up to God' (p 98). It is alarming to think of the extent of the heresies held by those who have authority within the bounds of Rome if Ratzinger is to be considered conservative." (M.Vogan)

It looks like a well-written article. I just want to make sure I'm accusing an Antichrist of something that he does support
Jim "surprisingly correct"???
Which religion do you come from?
Quote from the article.... "Ratzinger is deliberately using a meaning that is impossible in the context, in order to explain away the clear meaning of the text. This is also done in relation to the word for body (Greek: soma), which he says can also mean self. He draws the conclusion that 'one thing at any rate may be fairly clear: both John (6:63) and Paul (1 Cor. 15:50) state with all possible emphasis that the "resurrection of the flesh", the "resurrection of the body", is not a "resurrection of physical bodies""
