Good works should be a natural outgrowth of your faith, not an attempt to get on GOD's good side.
Pope=not deity=fallible and so his OPINION should not be put on the same level as scripture.
Dante's divine comedy is fabricated out of speculation and is not found in scripture. Some dudes were on point. The ones who were came from a time before statue worship and/or had a lot of problems with the condition of the catholic church. This is why we eventually had the reformation.
Definitely. I like this view. Good works should be residual of the faith you have placed. I like how this was articulated.
And that was the point I was trying to make as well. SO again, no argument here. How can a human man be considered infallible? Makes no sense to me.
In addition to the bible, a lot of catholic tradition is based on philosophy developped in the middle ages. Scripture alone doesn't define Catholicism, but I've also always seen that as a strange and indeed nonsensical thing. I mean, I was taught to not be tempted by pagan religions who would lead me away from God, but the traditions found in Catholiciam can be traced back to pagan religions. It all just seems hypocritical to me.
Anyways, I was never really trying to argue with you. I just wanted, as stated before, to get a christian perspective on things and as a result I thought it'd be interesting to post up some things from the Catholic perspective and see how they differed. Thanks for tolerating my playing Devil's Advocate so to speak.
And The Killer is another great movie. You really can't go wrong with early 90's John Woo X Chow-Yun joints.
All I do is smoke weed, blow lines, and listen to MF DOOM. And rap. http://www.facebook.com/SpacemanNYC

The father is pretty big, overweight, with a shaved head and a mustache, his wife has wild curly hair, and the daughter has similar hair except a little longer. Never seen any of these people before, at least I think I haven't. I'm in this room, a pretty big one. One corner of the room has a large, really intricately detailed rug, on which the chairs and dining table is set up on. It was so vivid, I remember looking down at it many times, and over on the other side of the room is a sort of kitchen, all in stainless steel. The rest of the floor is bare concrete, and the walls are concrete as well, and there are a few windows, but they're boarded up. All the way on the opposite corner of the room there's this huge wooden door, and I could almost feel the weight of it in my dream.
We're eating this dinner, and it's only meat. Just large steaks of some kind, and they're all undercooked, bloody even. No one is saying anything, just eating. Suddenly, the room gets icy cold. I remember just feeling like I would never be warm again, shivering uncontrollably, but I didn't want to say anything. Then the lights went out, everything is completely dark, I can't see anything. I'm sitting at the table, trying to sit still, but still shuddering, and I hear sounds of growling and whining dogs, and their nails clicking across the concrete. I remember not breathing.
I don't really remember what happened next, but the lights came back on, and I could see the man over in the kitchen or whatever it was, but I couldn't see what he was doing. I leaned over and could see in the corner. There were 3 dogs hanging by their hind legs, from chains, all whining and barking, trying to get loose. The man just takes one down, and pins it's neck on the counter, and starts skinning it alive. It's screaming, and yelping, and thrashing on the table, and i remember seeing it bite through its lips, and all its teeth were exposed and bloody, chipped from trying to snap at the man. The man unpins the dogs neck, but it's skinned all the way up to the shoulder blades, the skin pulled up over its head. The dog lets out a few sort of muffled ragged barks, and trys to stand up, but thumps back down on the counter every time it slips on its own blood.
