comment Giving to the church or giving to the poor?
As a note, however: Bishop's annual appeal and Operation Rice Bowl have historically sent a greater portion of the funds directly to Catholic Charities (at least that was my experience working for Paterson Diocese)

comment End of the world “calculations”
@hammar That said, the statement is actually partially tongue-in-cheek. If it is not the end of the world, you win. Huzzah! If it is the end of the world, the person you're betting against will never be able to collect, because it is the end of the world. There is no way to lose money that way.

@hammar I disagree, this is not a knowable finite period of time (to a human at least).

comment End of the world “calculations”
As a general rule, you can pretty much assume that if someone says that the end of the world will happen on such-and-such a date, then you can bet money that the world will not end that day.

comment Is prayer an integral part of worshiping, or is it possible to worship without a prayer?
@brilliant google.com/… It is part of the definition of the word.

comment Why no specific names of false apostles and false brothers in Acts and epistles?
From this, and the fact that Cephas is rebuked for following, it can be taken that he was substantially to the right of orthodoxy and therefore could rightly be considered a judaizer.

Generally, it is this third James who is called, "James of Jerusalem" and it was he who sent the messengers in Gal. 2 that convinced Cephas to back away from full embracement of the gentiles.

comment Why no specific names of false apostles and false brothers in Acts and epistles?
First, there were two, probably three James's in the NT. The first was James, the son of Zebedee, the brother of John. The second was another Apostle by the same name. If there is a third (and I believe this to be the case for a reason to extensive to go into here), then he would have been James, the "brother" (word more accurately rendered "kinsman") of the Lord.

@brilliant Strictly speaking, no. Worship definitionally requires praise and adoration whereas prayer does not.

Who ever said that we worship saints? I said that worship is prayer, not that prayer is worship. Subset not synonym.

comment Why do OEC discount the literal interpretation of the book of Genesis?
I do think it might be important to note that the Church's infallibility (and therefore the Bible's infallibility) is limited to Faith and Morals. If the See of Peter made a proclamation about, say, the growth of mealworms, he would have no guarantee of accuracy whatsoever!

comment Why is the Bible so short?
@AudioSancto There verses (and I will wager chapters) in the Bible where you can exhaust their meaning in an hour.
