[quote:Anonymous Coward 24011342:MV8yMDczMTA2XzM0ODk0NzE1X0I5QjY0Mjk=] [quote:Generation Doom:MV8yMDczMTA2XzM0ODk0NDU2X0Y0Qjg0RUNF] [quote:Anonymous Coward 24011342:MV8yMDczMTA2XzM0ODk0MzIzX0NFREMzQTAz] [quote:Generation Doom:MV8yMDczMTA2XzM0ODk0MjM5XzM2RDA4ODZC] If you received the sacrament of confirmation, you are always Catholic in God's eyes, thus the phrase "fallen away Catholic" or "back slidden". This goes for anyone who was confirmed in the Catholic faith. [/quote] So let me get this straight...when God says he casts sin away and never will remember it...He can do that...but, He can't forget that somebody was Roman Catholic? That is your argument? So, according to you, sin is less important that Roman Catholic Church membership? God can forget sin, but He cannot forget Roman Catholic Church membership...which according to others here...when I left would be part of my judgment (that I left the RCC). Do you see any difference between the Catholic church and the mafia? The mafia says that once a member always a member too! [/quote] Whoa buddy..I didn't make the rules. I'm just reporting what I've heard. I came across this discussion, maybe it will help clarify why you are always considered Catholic. http://forum.catholic.org/viewtopic.php?f=84&t=30157 [/quote] I read some of the posts on that forum. Here is my answer to that... You can read it from a Roman Catholic Bible some place as well... http://bible.cc/isaiah/43-25.htm God forgives and forgets sins. According to your link to a Catholic Online Forum...God does not forget baptism and confession, because they make an indelible mark on the soul. Let me see if I am understanding your position (or at least the position of some in that forum)...God can not forget the baptism of a child (who may be only a few days old) and He can not forget the confirmation of a person approximately 13 years old....BUT, according to the Bible...he can forget the sins of a murderer (the guy on the cross next to Jesus...even the apostle Paul) could count as people that God forgave and forgot their sins. Amazing! The Roman Church can force God to remember actions taken on an infant (baptism)...all the while...God can forget the sins of murder or whatever sins somebody may commit. Do you see the Roman Church as more powerful than God Himself? [/quote]
I was raised in the Roman Catholic Church. I no longer believe most of its doctrine. How can I get present Roman Catholics to say that I am "not Catholic" and not a "fallen away Catholic." I will not ever return to being in the RCC. I would rather saw my own head off than be back in the RCC. Tell me if I am wrong - the RCC is not the mafia - right - once you are in the mafia, you can never leave...is that what the present Roman Catholics believe...you can never leave the RCC? I want to be considered "not Catholic" and not a "fallen away Catholic!"
