  1. The catholic mass is like a cult ritual imo from being catholic fir 50 years…Sacraments are merely a money making arm in the catholic org…You yourself wrote that priests taught not to marry and have children in ancient times was so land could be controlled

  2. The difference between Protestant pastors and Catholic priests?
    The Catholic priest has the power to forgive your sins in Christ's name and allow you to go to heaven… the Protestant pastor — even the best in the world — cannot.

    also, EDIT for protestants who only listens to their pastors instead of actually reading their bibles:
    Yes, some men CAN forgive/not forgive sins in the name of God. Read your bibles: Jesus specifically told the apostles here:

    John 20: 21-23
    Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.”

    And since we know for a fact that the Apostles ordained successors to hold their offices (and those created to satisfy the need of a growing Church), it is only natural that these successors held the same functions. Otherwise, prepare to call God's command to the apostles "temporary", which would make no sense whatsoever. As if there was a need for God to give this power to the apostles, only to see it disappear with them a few decades after.

    Jesus DID say those words, and they were clear.
    Up to you (protestants) to decide if you prefer your pastor's fallible interpretation over Christ's clear words.

  3. enjoed the video. Myself, with all respects I will always consider a priest higher up than a pastor and that's not without respect but being a priest is very very different and deeper. I feel like im before a spiritual judge lol.
