I no longer believe the Catholic teachings on its supernatural founding by Jesus, and about many other things.
I do believe a god exists, but there are Universalist and Episcopal Churches near me which I will be checking out. …
Lastly, Jesus is Love. Gay men raping children isn’t love. Yet THOUSANDS of times it happened, and bishops and cardinals all over are complicit, half gay themselves most likely, I have many other issues but for now I’m going to just call myself “theist.”
Oh and I think Scripture prophesied this event of the Catholic Church having a catastrophic collapse:
Woe to the sinful nation,
a people whose guilt is great,
a brood of evildoers,
children given to corruption!
They have forsaken the Lord;
they have spurned the Holy One of Israel
and turned their backs on him.
5 Why should you be beaten anymore?
Why do you persist in rebellion?
Your whole head is injured,
your whole heart afflicted.
6 From the sole of your foot to the top of your head
there is no soundness—
only wounds and welts
and open sores,
not cleansed or bandaged
or soothed with olive oil.
7 Your country is desolate,
your cities burned with fire;
your fields are being stripped by foreigners
right before you,
laid waste as when overthrown by strangers.
8 Daughter Zion is left
like a shelter in a vineyard,
like a hut in a cucumber field,
like a city under siege.
"From the sole of the Church’s foot (its duoceses) to the top of its head (the papacy), there is no soundness (virtue) but open wounds and welts (from the sins lashing the Body of Christ)
If anyone is interested, I could write some threads which show some great Biblical prophesies which can be interpreted to describe the Church today.
