comment How does the Catholic Church reconcile the holy Catholic Church with (the) Pope(s) asking for forgiveness?
I believe there is a more significant point. The church is redeemed, in the same way that individual Christians are redeemed. Christians are presented as holy and blameless before God, even though they have sinned, thanks to the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Likewise the church is saved and redeemed through that grace.

comment What does it mean for Christ to have been slain before the creation of the world?
This would be better on Biblical Hermeneutics.

comment What does it mean to shed blood in the name of Christ?
@Andrew To a Christian pacifist the shedding of blood of another would be a mortal sin, and so not in the same category as the other items in the list.

@Andrew It's about the meaning of words. There is no "official Catholic perspective' on that.

comment What ia the Specific role of Africa in Christianity
I think some of the problems you are having here, and one of the reasons why we are having trouble understanding you is that you are asking questions about how North America and Europe do things. You may think that those are 'Christian nations' and so everything they do is governed by Christianity, but I assure you that is not the case. What Christians do or think, and what North Americans or Europeans do or think may have very little to do with each other. I've edited your question to make it about Christianity, which is what this site is about.

comment Examples of people who fell from grace and earned it back?
I can do that if you edit the question so that's what it asks. Take all the stuff about 'blasphemy against the Holy Spirit' and just ask that simple question.

comment Examples of people who fell from grace and earned it back?
Hi user1477388 First, you shouldn't edit follow-up questions into the original question. You should ask a separate question (except in this case there is already a question on the site that answers it). Second, you are going to have to be a bit clearer with what you are looking for. Are you looking for examples of people who were favoured by God, sinned, and then found favour with God again? There are very many examples of that.

comment Is there a biblical origin for demons?
@Jesse I'm not going to argue, just pointing out that most Christians don't agree with your interpretation of Revelation, so you are unlikely to get good answers here.

comment What are the different names of God in each book of the bible
Did you take notes? Could you ask him to give you a list?

comment Is there a biblical origin for demons?
It's a mistake to get too definitive about Revelation being ALL in the future or ALL in the past. That the events "must be chronological" is your own interpretation. Many accept the Revelation passage as accounting for the origins of demons, despite your personal revelations.

comment Can Trinity be taught only from Bible?
Absolutely a duplicate. It's not physically possible to read the Bible "without interpretation or explanation". All language must be interpreted, unless you say "here are some symbols that may or may not have meaning".
