Because the masses are not doing so well right now. Why the heck should I be poor just because the comrades want me to join them? This whole global game of money sucks. We all need Jesus. The humanist kum-ba-yah crowd wont make a better world in and of themselves. Everyone will simply be forced to join together in some weird societal communion that has no head. A headless beast.
Please provide the evidence to show anyone needs Jesus or that Jesus ever did anything for anyone.
As a Christian, I will face the reality of a bunch of godless pagans as they attempt to remake the world while getting rid of religion, but I will argue against them
There you go again posting the absurd notion that Christianity is anything significant or important enough for anyone to want to get rid of it.
Phat, Christianity, particularly the US Evangelical Christian Cult of ********* is simply far to pathetic to waste time trying to get rid of it. It is so filled with utter nonsense that quite honestly it needs to just be left alone to die of it's own internal and eternal cancers.
Eventually folk will realize it is nothing but the carny freak show.
There are many "Catholic" Christian Churches and the term Catholic simply acknowledges the universality of the Christian Community. The CoE and Episcopal Churches, Lutheran Churches as well as the Eastern Orthodox and Greek Orthodox and Russian Orthodox are all Catholic. You see this reflected in the Nicene Creed (or the 'I believes') where it says "I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church."
The Church in Rome was simply one Chapter and during the early convocations seen as the First among Equals. But all of the Apostolic Churches (those that follow an unbroken chain of consecration of priests) are considered Catholic Churches.
