comment How do Roman Catholics interpret 1 Timothy 4:3
Yeah, I was told by a priest who I asked whether it was a good idea to answer questions here that I should always treat my answers as my own opinions, not what the Church says. None of us have the faculty for concrete interpretation. Asking questions in relation to doctrines or disciplines is good though, mainly because it's usually provable from citations from magesterial or councilar documents

@bruised that's a good point about the reformation. It's one of the reasons I think it shouldn't have happened in the first place.

comment Can Trinity be taught only from Bible?
@caleb I don't think it's a duplicate either, "Biblical Basis" is asking for the Biblical Basis, this is a yes or no question. I think (hope) there is a Biblical Basis for the Trinity, it's not the only interpretation, it is the only valid interpretation and the answer to this question is why.

comment Difference between contraception and abortion?
VTC until you've got a doctrinal context, Catholicism for one is firmly against contraception, most Protestants are OK with it so you'd have to choose one or the other to get decent answers. Otherwise one of us is left casting pearls before swine.

Good catch on the comma! But check out the old Catholic translation it's got even MORE commas!

comment How do Catholics and Eastern Orthodox justify their clergy praying with those big hats on their heads?
@davidbrainerd with the diadem citation, the OT of the New American Bible was recently re-done and they must have translated it diadem again.

I thought I saw it in amazon, there was a preview that said it was from Pope John Paul II. I just didn't link to it because, as the American Chesterton society points out Amazon is not an apostalate

comment Why did Philip the evangelist have a house?
I think St. Peter had a house too, its a good bet that's where his family lived, at least his mother-in-law...
