>Oh you can't afford this here indulgence? Guess you can't go to heaven! Too bad!Were (((Catholics))) the real Jews all along?
Meanwhile today to enter a Lutheran church in Germany you have to pay money just to walk inside but all the Catholic churches I visited were open to the public.
Luther objected to this practice because he saw that it was corrupt, wrong, unscriptural and that it degraded the forgiving grace of God and the suffering and crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
>>8965776luther was a fatty who ate his own poop.
>>8965787Lying is a sin anon. I hope you can afford another indulgence for that one.
>>8965776Why were the Lutherans so uncharitable to the Church and disloyal to their Empire? You know St. Peter's had to be rebuilt. You know the Pope was subsidizing Christian monarchs in their wars against Muslims.Lutherans are traitors.
>>8965993Hundreds of thousands were killed in a war which brought great misery and suffering to Europe. All this started because of the selling of indulgences.

>>8965993>Be lazy rich sinful monarch>confess>Priest wants you to recite a bunch of words and show up to church>still pain in the ass>suggest paying indulgences instead because its also a great way to show how rich you are>Priest figures taking all your money would teach you humility and money would really help the poor anyway>some germ says you can talk to god yourself>cons people into believing him>sweet >you act like a jew and take the money you gave the ChurchProtestants are scum
>>8965583Indulgence never bought access to Heaven, at most the claim is it would be considered a good work that would reduce time spent in Purgatory.
>>8966062denial isn't only a river in egypt.
>>8965993>tfw Germans got their wish and now have a Turk infestation
>>8966120Good boomer joke. You should go tell your friends on Catholic Answers.
>>8966127>>8966218are you some jew nut who has a hard-on for catholic answers?
>>8966229/his/ is one person
>>8966229Hey I can totally picture all the ragey catholics being this guy now. Neat. It fits too.
>>8966258This guy is always mellow.
>>8966365he looks mellow.
>>8966368he looks like he smells like farts
>>8965787Luther showed everybody how corrupt the Catholic church was
>>8966375not to me.
>>8966380and yet, Lutheranism is a dead and disgraced religion while Catholicism lives on in the hearts and minds of people. So whatever he revealed...must have been false.
>>8966380>Luther showed everyone how corrupt humanity isThis is how stupid you sound btw.
>>8966392Catholicism is the fastest dying religion in the world.>>8966388that means you probably look like you smell like farts too
>>8966417>Catholicism is the fastest dying religion in the world.Source?
>>8966459>in the worldbut thats not what you provided
>>8966459That doesn’t show total population growth
>>8966459This is literally the worst statistic ive ever seen. If there was one religion with a million followers that had 14 people leave and 2 joined it would be the fastest shrinking religion in the world by your faux logic.
>>8966489The fact that Catholicism is large only makes this statistic worse. You're talking about millions leaving every year>>8966472OK you win, the Catholic Church is only disintegrating in the US per this survey. Find me a source about elsewhere that says it's doing better lol
>>8966459That's just in the US you retard. It wouldn't distinguish between Black Protestant churches and Mainline Protestant churches otherwise.
(((protestant))) work ethic
>>8966473What? How does that effect this in any way? Holy shit the cope.
>>8966496It's growing in Africa and in Asia. Also, that's from fucking 2014. Again, you are a faggot.
>>8966501This is serious cope. Look up the current stats on Pew. It's the same. Prove to me it's better now by any, ANY metric. Find one source that shows this.
>>8966509Why don't you show me instead of just telling me like the stupid faggot you are?
>>8966517In 2014 Catholics were losing members at a rate of 6.5 to 1. Now you're trying to claim they turned that ship around in the past 6 years? We both know that's not true, so prove me wrong. You can hide and play games, but that doesn't change the fact that your religion is dying... you realize that right? Internet posturing doesn't mean you aren't losing members????
>>8966496https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/traditional-catholic-parishes-grow-even-as-us-catholicism-declinesEven if faithful Catholics are reduced to a handful, it is they who are the True Church of Jesus Christ.
>>8966526Cope. This coming from the Catholic Answers faggots who hate trads and rail on them all day. Fucking LOL. How low will you sink?Also btw trads comprise at MOST 600K people in the world. Those parishes are growing from 50 people to 100. WOWZERS
>8966531>wowzerswe are done here
>>8966524I meant globally right now you fucking retard. That's a Pew poll in 2014 focused solely on America. You can't expect me to take you seriously if you can't give an honest answer to that.
>>8966543waiting for a source
>>8966531A small church that cleaves to God's will is infinitely preferable to a massive church corrupted by the world.Faith is ultimately a personal relationship between the faithful and God; the church exists as a means of introduction at most.
>>8966552>https://www.pewforum.org/2013/02/13/the-global-catholic-population/>https://cara.georgetown.edu/staff/webpages/Global%20Catholicism%20Release.pdfBtw, it's not the size of the Church that matters. It's that it is Christ's Church and Christ told us that The forces of Darkness will not prevail against His Body here on Earth. But seeing as you are a Prottie, you only care about numbers and results, not about Truth.
>>8966500Are you statistically illiterate? Your data does not show the church shrinking.
>>8966496>You're talking about millions leaving every yearNo, he isn’t. If 14 people left the church and only 2 joined then the church would be the fastest dying religion in the world according to you.
>>8965593No church anywhere charges for religious services
>>8966815I thought synagogues did during Yom Kippur
