Only Catholics and Orthodox need answer in the commbox, please

Catholic and Orthodox? In short, yes! Well, I hope so.

Yes--but we should remember Judas was an Apostle

Puff the Magic Dragon said...

Ah, the old chestnut.

I am sorry, but that premise is used to disobey bishops on EVERYTHING.

Amanda Borenstadt said...

Yes. They are.

Dim Bulb said...

Yes, but with caveats.

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20


I declare that I have no intent to acknowledge, distribute or encourage anything contrary to Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition and the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church and the Apostolic See. I submit myself and all the contents of this blog to the judgment of the Church.
