Tradition always changes and develops from one generation to the next, and this tradition can corrupt teachings. Kurieuo. Only ecclesial traditions are changeable/removeable. And yes, the church had problems during the reformation. And very immoral popes. For example-Alexander VI, whos one main goa...

I completely agree. Scripture is divine, and all that you pointed out. It has divine authority, etc, and I deeply love scripture as well. However, I also think tradition has a place in the Church. In other words, I do not beleive in 'sola scriptura' What the Catechism says about tradition: 80 "Sacre...

The celibacy of priests is not a doctrine or a dogma so it can be changed. I personelly didn't like the idea of priests getting married because I think that a piest can better serve the people if he does not have to worry about a wife and family. "From the Documents of Vatican II "Hence there exists...

Sola Scriptura

Just curious, but were to protestants get the idea 'sola Scriptura'(scripture alone) :?: I mean, if you beleive in scripture alone, yet scripture says nothing about scripture alone, then someone is in error...I'm sorry I if I offended anyone in saying that. It was not intentional. Just curious :) Go...

I hope the next Pope doesn't allow marrige for priests...my personal opinion...Although the Cathechism of the Catholic Church talks about celibecy(#1579) I found this in an article I was reading, and although it concerns the Da vinci code, I think, in a way, it can relate to this topic. "He explaine...

I also love reading C.S. Lewis(screwtape letters is ...

One of the commandments where to honor you mother and your father. If Jesus followed the commandments, which I beleive he did, then he honoured hi...
