Pope to Catholics: For Lent, give up trolling
During Lent, Catholics are called on to give up something, like sweets. On Wednesday, Pope Francis added a modern twist to the list of things to quit during the season and beyond: insulting people on social media.

The pope made his appeal to tone things down while speaking to tens of thousands of people in St. Peter's Square for his general audience on Ash Wednesday, the start of the 40-day season that leads up to Easter.

Lent, he said in partially improvised remarks, "is a time to give up useless words, gossip, rumours, tittle-tattle and speak to God on a first name basis," he said. ...

Giving up SA for Lent is not a bad idea, HO. This forum is often the MMA arena of Christianity.

I think they missed another part of the story--Pope to non-Catholics: give up SA website for Lent!
And I feel a song coming on, "Give me that old time disorganized religion, Give me that old time disorganized relition"

Not at all, bro.

What I am saying is that you quite correctly and absolutely rightfully named Lent as an unbiblical thing not to be entertained, yet you will not go a step further and go on the offensive against all the other unbiblical things which are in the church's calendar. For example, est, eaas, etter, estes, oh what is it? Anyway it is coming up on April 10th, and you have to decide whether or not you will stand on God's word alone, or mix in a bit of pagan with it.

Just sayin'.

I'll tell you why CES, because MOST on this forum do not know the true Gospel that reveals the righteousness of God alone. Organized religion of various stripes teaches works like invitation style gospel 'offers', that offer claims their jesus loves everybody and died for all,just 'accept' him or make your decision- the lordshippers like Washer and JMac tell the sinner to look to 'self' for evidence of salvation, including some fictitious idea of getting better, less sinful, more holy. The covenantors say infant baptism is key, they line up with Rome on that one. The chari-crazies insist on tongues as evidence.
So,we see Satan is busy deceiving through 'religion'. Some think it's shameful to speak against false teachers like BG, proving they are void of discernment concerning biblical truth. Just say 'jesus' and that's legit enough for most.

Actually, John, I’m thinking about converting to Abyssinian Orthodox. I read somewhere that they celebrate Christmas once a month. Just think, twelve turkeys and fruitcakes every year! And Bing Crosby from January to December! And the Great Debate could last from New Years Day until New Years Eve! Hot diggety possum! What could possibly be better?

Oh what a big relief! I thought I was the only one who sees Lent as an imaginary and unscriptural thing.

Well, if we are going to start here, the next thing on the agenda will be..... er..... um, what is it? Oste, Eost, don't tell me, it's on the tip of my tongue, Est, Eest. I give up.

The evangelical world is full of bent stick preachers, Mike. Most of them don't admit to it, but that is the way of it. How else could God get all the glory? As you say, he is seen more clearly when the preacher is nothing, naught, zilch, an unprofitable servant.

I have posted this before but I felt after reading Dolores’ comment that a word in season was appropriate here.
We witnessed to my RC parents for over 20 years and the only thing it seemed to do was drive them deeper into their RC religion.
My Dad especially was quite angry with me and refused to speak of the things of the Lord.We continued in prayer and honored his wishes on the matter.
Mom passed a few years ago and my Dad’s estranged sister came back in his life.She is also a Christian and lives in N .Ireland.With his new smart phone they started what’s apping face to face nearly every day and she began witnessing to him and he began to soften read his bible and even started to ask us questions about Scripture.
Long story short, the Lord called him out of his darkness and called him to himself.
He has left the RCC and is in a sound church in his small community.
He is 89 years old.NEVER give up on your loved ones and friends.
All praise, glory and honor to the Lord, who saves sinners young and old, male and female.
Hallelujah what a Savior.
Praise the Lord for His amazing grace!! Hope you and your family are doing well MS

MS, I agree but wonder if it’s to get more hits on that thread. There was 3 articles on Franklin Graham that one got 200 hits. What’s the purpose?
I just got a news flash on my iPhone a few minutes ago.
The US has signed a peace agreement with the Taliban. Watched on Fox News as it was signed.
Reminds me of the movie Jungle Book where the 🐍 is trying to charm Jungle Boy by saying, trust me and we know how that ended. I’ll take a wait &see on that one. The god they worship says kill the infidels who happen to be everyone but followers of Mohammed!!

If Billy Graham was a Jesuit, as someone on here claimed, he was a Jesuit who preached salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone as Savior. Now what kind of screwball Jesuit would do a thing like that? Certainly not Francis the Talking Jackass.

Good question, 'Dr Tim' but I don't see how it relates to the story. Of course, maybe our favorite herbal doctor Sambola could tell us. If only we could get Medicare to accept the bill.
I don't see too many posters or commenters here defending the Roman Catholic Church; even someone as 'wholesome' as Franklin Graham gets over 200 negative comments posted.
