Hey Protestants,
How is it going to mass in your ramshackle "churches"? We catholics have build the most breathtaking cathedrals for the higher grace of God, but it seems praising the Lord is jot something Protestants are intersted in.

Giving up the time we've got to live a life completely
Giving over to the lust that rages in the mind
The Captain fills his place with gold while all the ship is sinking
Calls himself the Bishop-Prince and blood's his favorite wine

Gardens grow as people know and sense the smell of slaughter
Every soul and Saxon senses something's gone awry
The woman in the wilderness - the beast has nearly got her
Men surround the Bishop-Prince and sing their bloody cry

In the name of God you must die
All that's not our truth is a lie

The pearl is trodden underfoot into the muck and mire
We'll take the Roman Gods except the names will all be changed
The woman's fed by ravens and her feet are in the fire
Cold and bare she's holding there 1260 days

And the Captain calls
If they won't pay they'll soon be scratching the dungeon walls
From the highest height to the tenement halls - it's true
Look out we're comin' for you!


In the name of God you must pay your penance
If you don't well that's a crime
If you want to buy your way to heaven
We'll indulge you every time
Would you like to come
We'll eat in secret
My water's stolen but it's fine
If you want to know much more about me
Take a look in Proverbs 9

Mercy, mercy we're selling mercy
We are Christ and we'll bless you well
People crying Lord have mercy
But they've gone in through the gates of hell
It's true, look out we're comin' for you!

If you think the whore is only history
Are there those who teach her lies?
Wherever they believe what came out from her
The same spirit is still alive

Mercy, mercy we're selling mercy
We are Christ and we'll bless you well
People crying Lord have mercy
But they've gone in through the gates of hell
It's true, look out we're comin' for you!

but seriously the conservative Christians need to unite not fight.

Meanwhile, this is what American Protestants call their place of "worship". It's litteraly a shack. Shows how much you are willing to invest in Jesus.

>The pope is the "Holy Father"
The pope is not on the same level as God, as I understand it he is "first among equals" though this I disagree with aswell, no one should be first in the church other than God.

I just looked it up and Germany is only 30% Catholic, and of that 30% only 13% attend Sunday Mass.

So you're bragging about a bunch of buildings thrown up by a largely nonexistent organization, which explains why they're completely empty in every picture.

Britain has also already passed the tipping point where more people in the country attend Friday Mosque than Sunday Mass.
>>
>>61019789
Lutheran here.

The Catholic Church is an organization, they take billions of dollars from people and on top of that believe in paying your way to heaven. They also worship idols, such as mary and saints.

Protestants worship Jesus, and go to heaven as long as they believe that Jesus died for their sins. And that they pray and ask for forgiveness for their sins. As well as don't have same sex or do bestiality.

You of all people should know this German, as the Catholics extorted money from the Germanic peoples all throughout the middle-ages.

You can, and you do. It's not the case of abandoning prayers to God. It's a matter of giving respect to these saints as well.
And Mary is definitely not irrelevant. As the Mother of God, she deserves praise too, not the same as God as there is no one who is the same as God but praise is due to others who have followed the word of God, and to those who are great role models for other Christians.

I get where you are coming from, but at least try to understand.
We do not perform idolatry. We do not "worship" Mary, as we acknowledge God is above all else. We do not perform special magical rituals. The Orthodox church is the most unchanged church, quite similar to what Jesus and his initial followers preached. Catholicism mostly differs in hierarchy and some principles, although no one deviates more from the original teaching than you protestants.
What is wrong in kissing icons? When I pray to God I cross myself and kiss my cross afterwards too.

The concept of "Mother of God", implies that God was created... by a mother... denying the tittle of God.

"‘I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh.’ The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, ‘How can this man give us his flesh to eat?’" (John 6:51–52).

"Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you; he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him" (John 6:53–56).

Many of his disciples, when they heard it, said, “This is a hard saying; who can listen to it? (John 6:60)

After this many of his disciples drew back and no longer went about with him. (John 6:66)

That is simply a form of prayer that is not often used because of impracticality.

The pope does not pick his own successor.

The chain cannot be broken -- there are just too many links. If everyone in Rome died in a nuclear fire the priests and bishops of the world could choose a new successor and all would continue as normal.

3. Protestant is a "Protest". They are protesting that you could "buy" Gods forgiveness even if you murder and raped.
Thats why the Gold and crosses and icons are very much down-tuned in Protestantism and in protestant Church. From a theological point of view they might be a bit off, but they have honest motivation and most importantly honest intention.

Catholic is anti-orthodox. Protestant is anti-catholic.

Actually, you are, by saying that ordinary bread and wine are being transformed.

More people being wrong doesn't make it right. Is Jesus not said to be of Joseph's line? How would that be possible otherwise?

As an agnostic who doesn't buy into christianity, I feel like some of the protestant denominations that have small churches in industrial areas are closer to what Jesus wanted. Instead of building a gaudy, expensive church, they get by with the bare minimum, and use the tithe money to feed the homeless and stuff.

It's true that papal power has been abused in the past.
Also, the Donation of Constantine, on which basically all earthly power of the pope in the middle ages was based upon, was found to be a forgery.
But I believe honest Catholics exist, especially now, after the political fight between the Orthodox and the Catholics has subsided.
The protestants bend the Christian faith, discard so much of it. By practice we are much closer to Catholics.

>He which the Heavens could not contain, She carried in Her womb

Gonna be honest with you, I do not remember read that in The Bible. Please tell me where...


But anyways, only God deserve worship.

3 “You shall have no other gods before me.

4 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

Exodus 20:3-6

Greek, especially Koine, is infamous for having so many different definitions for a single word. This is the result of a, at the time, 2000 year old language whose grammar has been virtually unchanged while still taking on thousands of new words.

If you want to translate it at "until," fine, keep believing that. But there are a myriad of translations, about half of which that would imply she remained a virgin the rest of her life.
>>61039550
"Adelphios" in Koine can be translated as "kin." Kin is a broad group that can be biological family members or just people of a local tribe or community.

Joseph was Jesus' adoptive father. In ancient times adoption meant more than it does today. Most people of the time believed that formally adopting someone was the same as taking them into their blood line. This is a concept that goes back to at least the times of ancient Rome. When Caesar adopted Augustus, no one challenged Augustus' claim on Caesar's death (well, they did, but for political reasons, they didn't actually dispute Augustus' claim as Caesar's son).

Well, I do agree that they were Jesus' half siblings, as they all had the same mother, but Jesus had a different Father
>There is absolutely no proof that this meant his literal brothers and sisters.
other then when other people straight up say that Jesus had brothers
Mark 6:3
Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.

Where did all of Mary's other kids come from if she wasn't later impregnated by Joseph?

But hey /pol/ don't take my word for it, check out all these English renderings of Matthew 1:25
>But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.
>But he did not have sexual relations with her until her son was born. And Joseph named him Jesus.
>but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus.
>But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a Son. And he gave Him the name Jesus.
>But he did not know her until she had brought forth a Son, and he called His name Jesus.
>but kept her a virgin until she gave birth to a Son; and he called His name Jesus.
>And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
>but did not know her intimately until she gave birth to a son. And he named Him Jesus.
>He did not have marital relations with her until she had given birth to a son; and he named him Jesus.
>but did not have marital relations with her until she gave birth to a son, whom he named Jesus.
>And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
>and knew her not till she had brought forth a son: and he called his name JESUS.
>And he knew her not till she brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
>and knew her not until she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Jesus.
>and knew her not till she had brought forth a son: and he called his name JESUS.
>but did not live with her until she had given birth to a son. The child's name he called JESUS.
>and didn't know her sexually until she had brought forth her firstborn son. He named him Jesus.

Adelphios has several meanings in Koine.

I will fully concede that there are interpretations of the Bible that could lead one to believe that Jesus was born through normal intercourse with Mary and that he had brothers and sisters.

However, it is important to take context into account. And nearly all early Church fathers agree on the interpretations we have today; Christ was the Son of God, born of a virgin, whom remained a virgin the rest of her days.

I do not fear the muslim, I just see them as misguided. They too should strive for humility as the Lord would ask.

Seeing a lot of "Can be" there. Plus, Matthew 1:1–17 contests it, since as far as I can remember, the Hebrews didn't have the same adoption system as the Romans.

I agree totally that good Catholics exists.
In fact im sure the great majority is good.
Its not the peoples fault that there are greedy people and entities at the very top of Catholic Church.

Man whatever branch you are following its all about the intention of the heart and to accept Jesus Christ as your only saviour and lord.
And accept that he died and resurrected to forgive you of your sins. This is what it means to be a christian for me.

If you have a good heart, dont do obvious treason, stealing etc. Believe in Jesus christ forgiveness and resurrection, then Im sure he will understand. Its not about being a buerochrat, but being good in your heart.
Who knows whats the correct details are man, only God knows.

But you know in your heart when you are doing something wrong.

It's impossible to read Mary as a perpetual virgin and it's impossible to read Joseph being Jesus father. Just read the first chapter of Matthew. There's a reason why both a matrilineal and a pathrilinial geneology for Jesus is given.

It depends on how you interpret it.
Catholics could buy Gods foregiveness if you murdered and raped a women. This is what Protestants was against, notice the "protest".
