I have a question for Catholics. When an Archbishop says he is burning an altar does he really burn the altar or is it just replacing the altar with a new one? What if the altar is made of stone? Going to be pretty hard to burn? Guess where I’m getting at is the altar really burned or is it like some sort of exorcism the archbishop does to cleanse the altar? Does the Church really have backup altars? Someone educate me.

Based on my almost 20 years at this site, I fully expected to jump into this thread late to see the moderated wreckage fairly well off target.

You guys delivered. :hihi:
I stayed away for the same reason. The faces change but the story remains the same :hihi:

However, there is one point I cannot let slide. Guido is not an anti-semite.

You don't achieve it. God grants it through Christ.
The very famous John 3:16:
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. "

I think it is very clear what happens if you don't believe in him.

By grace through faith. No faith, no ticket.

I've always wondered why someone that doesn't know about Jesus would be damned. what about people who live in places like the Amazon Rain Forest who have never seen civilization and do not know religion is?
