All mainline Christian denominations teach that.  It's spelled out in the New Testament many times, but that doesn't mean that good deeds aren't important to living life to the fullest.

So do you have to mix in some bad deeds? I've done an exemplary job of that. So I'm good.

Catholics believe there is no sin that cannot be forgiven. There are two classes of sins. Original sin and venal sin.

Right now the big debate is over abortion and homosexuality. I don't support the Vatican on either of these issues. My church no longer demands strict ad adherence to these dogmas as so many American Catholics are in the same place.

The discipline in Catholic church is pretty lax compared to 50 years ago. It is hard to understand Jesus teachings as he spoke in parables and a lot of what we know is actually based on Paul's writings.. Best way to understand is to read the Sermon on the Mount. That I think is the straight talk in how to conduct your life. JMHOP. Do you tythe to your church?

I give the minimal amount to the Church in the envelope.

We do provide a scholarship at a Catholic All Girls High School for a child at need. This high school has a 99% college acceptance rate and it chanegs lives...

We also contribute to two Catholic Universities....

Our idea is to give to VERY SPECIFIC causes in order to make sure the $$ is not wasted defended pedophiles.

I think St Peter will put in a good word on that.

What does that have to do with good deeds?  The tithe was demanded in the Old Testament and used by churches today as a guide for giving, but I never considered those who give less or not at all as sinners.  Churches get a bad rap for always asking for money and many deserve it.  Church leadership and especially senior pastors seem to not be very practical when it comes to finances.  Like the government, they seem to find projects and programs that exceed resources.  I've known people who were turned of on organized religion because of this.  Not being familiar with the Catholic denomination, I'd like to know if that's a big deal for them.

Tithing was required under Old Testament law and was only to be given to Levite Priests and widows.  It has no place under the New Testament as Jesus said to give from your heart as God has prospered you.  Not to give 10% of your gross income to your church.  To whom much is given, much is required.  And vice versa.

Yep, there are good people who can't or won't give much money, but give of their time very generously.  Our church runs a large food pantry and the amount of volunteerism amazes me.  Some make it a second job without compensation.  I admire those folks more than the big money givers.

In the Catholic church time spent doing good deeds is considered part of tithing. Few parishioners I know of give the recommended 10 per cent.

There are no guarantees and I really do not know if I have lived an exemplary life. Better than a few but not as good as many others.

You were a lawyer.  That's a lot of baggage you'll have to make up for.   :lol:  :lol:

Worse than that...a DIVORCE lawyer. We all know what the church thinks of divorce.

You'll have a lot of 'splainin' to do when you meet Pete.   You should have been a Protestant.  Divorce isn't such a sin with most of them.
