Confused about condoms

Hi…

I Northern Ireland most people now use condoms…protestant and roman catholic…

They are openly on sale in all areas…

Most of my roman catholic friends use them but are unwilling or unable to state church views on this…

Is there still a directive on their use

and if so how can it be enforced…

Cheers ian

yo Ian,

the Church has always condemned the use of condoms.

Ian, like most areas of morality we are on the honor system. We might be able to hide some of our sins from the church but we can’t hide them from God.

Ian,

you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink.

You have to set the example yourself of good character and integrity, chaste love, and sacrifice of your desires.

And then tell them WHY

Hi…

Qoting the old testament on any issue is so dangerous considering what was done to the moabites and many other
peoples…demanded by God…

Jesus has no commands against condoms…

My position is that so many catholics use them and they are sold so openly…

Many married couples use them…

Didnt Jesus say to His apostles…“If they hear you,they hear Me”.
Todays apostles are talking to you,do you hear Jesus?
