Re: Struggling with lust

Ok, seems as if it is "wrong" then. But what is wrong? Is it necessarily sinful? There are many "not-so-good" things that aren't sinful, just not good. What makes something wrong? Is it the arousal which is sinful? The lustful ideas? In a masturbation thread it was discussed (general non-catholic vi...

Is this lust?

Posted here before etc. Now have some more questions about it. Well, it's some situation... Is it bad/sinful if we get aroused? is the actual thing of being aroused sinful? If not, should we try and stop it? Imagine this: you have a female friend who sometimes leans against you etc, puts her feet on...

Re: Are Denominations Ordained by God?

Well, so does it look like God doesnt mind the differences? 38000 is scarily many!! i thought there were about hundred, not more... And, what are we judged upon? How well we obeyed our denomination? What if we dont agree to rules set out by our church - can we still partly follow it? And when JC spe...

Re: 2012

According to the article it does say it could be forgeries, but ends in the idea it is not a forgery and that the end times are near. seems comforting at first (that world may not end) but ends at the fact it could... Looked at other things and looks it is near. So much evil happening. I'm not up to...

Re: 2012

Re: Downloading stuff from internet...

Yeah exactly! Wanted to post that but someone was faster ;) Though, i had a look on how it worked - and yeah it's a lot of fuss... apparently license had to be renewed every 60 days, then it could not be copied elsewhere etc. Some software or something was needed to put it on mp3 players etc. Beside...

Re: Are Denominations Ordained by God?

Well, came across a book explaining why the Catholic faith is the "right" one (im catholic but been wavering with denominations and questionng it :lol) and says that only the Catholic Church has managed to retain its unity, it's also Catholic, apostolic, Holy. Author of book (Scott Hahn) argues othe...

Re: Marijuana

Thats true, that we shouldnt decide our morals. But there still remains this issue of what issues are in the gray area. because, the Bible does not mention everything which is and isnt a sin - it doesnt contain an exhaustive list of millions of things whihc are sins. one could judge, but lets say a ...

Re: dinosaurs

Hehe yeah :D it was more plants and other things like fossils (?) that did it. but was just natural way of things i think rather than some planned thing. other species were back then and died out but we may not pay so much attention to them.
