I like the direction the new pope is taking the catholic church. some complain that he is lacking in certain areas, but for a super old, hyper traditional, massively international organization, its moving in the right direction at amazing speed.
it's a bit like saying what is your opinion of humans. some people use their Christian religion to do good things. they feed the hungry, clothe the poor. I don't agree with their religion but I respect what they are doing.
other people use it to profit off of vulnerable people like televangelists. some use it as an excuse to descriminate or outright torture people. Mike pence for example. i have nothing but contempt for "Christians" like that. and I used quotes because if you are descriminating against people like that then I don't believe they qualify as a Christian because Jesus was pretty explicit about accepting other people.
haha. I guess your right. we all have our pros and cons. so do you have a opinion on the general Christian community?
that still is a very wide category. my thoughts on the United Church of Canada, the Catholic Church, and the church of latter day saints vary considerably.
sorry. the Christian Church. when we want to talk about the whole of us we ussually say the Church.
which church? there are alot of them.
for me, god is everything. thats all....
hey guys. I was curious about y'all's opinion on the chrurch of today because your perception tells is where we are doing good and where we need to take a step back and look at what we are doing wrong and how to better present it.
