“They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.” 1 John 2:19
Every denomination has its problems with their leadership. Some make the news, some it is never discovered. What ever is going on with the Catholic Church is all the reason to pray for it; not to leave it. Holding back tithe’s and offerings is not going to hurt the Vatican boys. It is going to jeopardize the work that priests and nuns are doing in the most destitute regions on earth.
Remember Mother Teresa? I believe she would ask that we pray for the church, then the others who need help while on this earth.
If you are upset with the “old boys club” of the Catholic Church, don’t stop going to church. That will accomplish nothing in your life. The only one you are pleasing is Satan, “the great liar” himself.
If I had a son in school being taught by priests, I would tell them that if they put one finger on my son I will forgive them, then punch them in the nose.
I think that would make Mother Teresa smile.
