CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
I am obviously new here and I am just trying to get into the groove of things. I just wanted to conduct a little survey on what theologies people on CF hold to. I know I probably missed a few, if I did, just tell us in the thread. (Note: Groups not holding to the Nicene Trinity are not consider Christians in this section and thus have not been listed).
I need some advice.
My wife and I have been married for almost 14 years, and I have not been faithful to her for a single 12 month period. We have 3 children together between ages 6 and 11. She knows of all the times I have cheated, and chose to remain for any number of reasons. I love this woman, and she loves me, but the problem is that I never been able to gain victory over sins of the flesh. I’ve done all I know to do, gave my life to Jesus (before we got married actually) I‘ve had accountability partners, counseling, confession, prayer, fasting, yielding to the Sprit, and none of it seems to work. I told my wife that she should divorce me, because I’m pretty confident that a person like me cannot be saved by God. The problem is...
I know…not another Mary thread.
There are dozens of threads with thousands of posts about whether or not Mary was conceived free from original sin, remained a virgin her entire life, and ascended body and soul into Heaven. So I have a simple question to my Catholic brothers and sisters. Why does it matter? Seriously, are these things really sticking points to your faith?
Let’s set aside the question of whether or not these things are based in scripture. If Mary was conceived like everyone else, had a normal sex life with Joseph after the birth of Jesus that produced offspring, and died and was buried like everyone else, what difference does it make? Does it change what happened at Calvary? Does it have anything to do with our...
Today is the Glorious 12th of July, the anniversary of the battle of the Boyne, the Protestant version of St. Patrick's day. This is when Orange orders stage marches in honour of their Protestantism and their forebears.
Why though is Ireland not Protestant today and Catholicism so closely associated to Irishness by most?
For Ireland was under English rule, Henry VIII was their king, and it underwent all the same things that occurred in England. Its monasteries were dissolved, its parishes and clergy became Protestant, there was strong pressure from above to convert...
Yet it didn't. Later the Plantations and successive English governments failed to do so as well. Importing Protestant Scots, giving land to Huguenots, sending fiery...
Well someone actually did take info from the Kremlin to influence the election. And it wasn't Donny Trump.
Democrats intentionally used disinformation from Russia to attack Trump, campaign aides

Can or do or can, sinners get into heaven, that die in sin...? Does it matter whether they were sorry or repentant or not about it?, or do you actually have to "do away with" or put away all known sin that you know of that you do, or are guilty of...?
I call Purgatory a brass ring because of the difficulty of obtaining a free ride to that world.
Take Catholics for example. According to the Catechism (CCC 1035) when they leave this life with just one un-absolved mortal sin to their credit, just 1, they go directly to Hell and eternal suffering-- no delay, and no waiting period.
Their trip is a direct flight, so that even if they've been a faithful Catholic for 49 years, they will miss the boat just as if they had been a Hindu, or a Muslim, or an atheist. All their years as a faithful Catholic will be stricken from the record and count for naught.
Q: Why can't Catholics obtain absolution for mortal sins in the afterlife?
A: The Catholic catechism doesn't allow it.
"There is no...
What should a Roman Catholic do if a Protestant gives them a Bible?
I found one answer from a blog called Eponymousflower. This is a blog by traditionalist Catholics, deeply suspicious of post-Vatican II Popes, but still within the Roman Catholic Church.
The answer: Refuse the gift of a Protestant Bible. If it comes in the mail, or you don't unwrap it until you get home, burn it. Yes, throw it into a fire, or light a fire to burn this Protestant Bible.
Where does this bizarre attitude come from? The blog cites the Catechism of Pope Pius X, who reigned from 1903-1914, and was canonized as a saint by Pope Pius XII in 1954.
An excerpt from the Catechism of Pope Pius X under the heading The Ninth Article of the Creed and Communion of...
