RE: Papal Hypocrisy?
I'd really love to take exception to the criticisms you have, particularly of the baptists and other independat, bible-believing, fundamentalist churches in your area, but I can't.
The sad fact is that many people join churches because of peer pressure or other poor reason. Any organization comprised of humans, will suffer from human frailities. Yes, there is rampant hypocracy in the church. The TV charllotans ( sp?) really deserve a special place in Hell, and according to the recorded words of Jesus, will get what they deserve.
Yet in spite of all this well-deserved criticism, there still are true churches, striving to be true to God's Word, and taking care of the widows and orphans. Lets be sure not to bash all Christian churches while taking aim at some of them.
Another thing, hypocracy on the part of some does not mean that Christianity is false. In fact, many believe we don't ever achieve a sinless perfection in this life. We all KNOW more than we DO. That might even be true for some agnostics, but I'm not sure they can understand that.
