The Church is wily ?

Maria Isabel Salazar

The Church's cunning ruse

The Church has deceived us in more ways than one. We the people should not allow ourselves to be seen as fools. The Church promises us salvation with our purchase of indulgence. Do you really believe paying the church will give you a free ticket into heaven? There is no need to pay the church for our salvation, all that is needed is pure faith.I believe that no amount of good deeds or any ritual was beneficial without a basic faith or belief. Join me, and not let the Church fool you.

All the Church is looking for is for your money, not your salvation. The Church has extreme wealth and continues to want more and more. The pop has neither the will nor the power to remit any penalties beyond those imposes either at his own discretion or by any canon law. Do not be fooled my fellow people, do not let them convince you that buying an indulgence will release you of your penalties. Jesus will give you salvation, not the Church itself, whom has not the power of our all mighty God. Death puts an end to all the claims of the Church;even the dying are already dead to the canon laws, and are no longer bound by them.

We should follow our faith and not by the rules of the Church that are meant for the wealth and power of the church itself rather than focusing on the faith and salvation of the people. Any true Christian whatsoever, living or dead, participates in all the benefits of Christ and the Church; and this participation is granted to him by God without letters, of indulgence. This being said, not the church nor the pope can give us the true benefits of being a Christian. The pope has not the power that the Church gives him and allows him to have. We are believers in God, we are followers of God, not of the Church. The Church has clearly lost its path in its initial purpose. Follow me and let the Church know of its wrong. Follow me and not let yourself be fooled.

The Church has lost its way

Church has too much power?

I think it is ridiculous how much power we have allowed the Church to have. The Church having extreme power is not the only power, but they have abused this power. They have convinced the people that the people are at their top interest, when in fact this is not the case. The only thing the Church is looking to do is to expand its wealth and power. We the people should act upon this and not let the Church diminish the true purpose of the Church, to provide a place of worship and spread faith to all.

The treasures of the Church, out of which the pop dispenses indulgences, are not sufficiently spoken of or known among the people of Christ. The Church has more wealth than it allows us people to know, and at this wealth grows so those its power. Do not buy into their promises of indulgences, when the church can not guarantee salvation, yet only looks to take your money. It is vain to rely on salvation by letter of indulgence, even if the commissary. or indeed the pope himself, were to pledge his own soul for their validity. We the people need to not give into the Church and its trickery, yet rebel for the Church to do whats right. We want our Church to be about faith, not about money nor power.
