Animals run from us for a reason.

For the creation awaits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God.


The glory to be revealed....
I see a truly magnificent picture.
Creation itself will be set free from it's bondage to corruption.

By the way, the part about "people getting their own planets"... you didn't hear that from a Mormon, did you? I thought not.

What?

No planet?

I'm sure you've heard the saying;
"You should never have to buy a boat. Just have a freind who hs one"

Well, I was kinda hoping that I could find a friend with a planet who could set aside enough space for...say an 18 hole golf course?

I have a question for Catholics. I know that Protestants, for the most part, believe in Sola Scriptura, while Catholics do not. I understand -- in general terms -- that they believe instead in scripture plus holy tradition. What I would like to know is how tradition is established. I mean, as a Mormon, it makes sense to me that there are sources of truth other than the Bible. But how does the Catholic Church go about incorporating holy tradition into its doctrine? I wish I had some specific examples to give you, but the only thing that comes to mind right now are what I believe are known as the Marian doctrines. I'm thinking of things like Mary's immaculate conception, her perpetual virginity, her bodily ascension into Heaven, etc. They seem to have gained "official" status at various times throughout the history of the Church as opposed to having all been believed and practiced from the beginning. I'm wondering why these things would have just become doctrinal hundreds of years after Christ's death. I'm assuming it is "tradition" that they have always been taught, but how is this validated? Did my question make any sense at all?

That's what my husband wants, but I keep telling him, "THERE IS NO GOLF IN HEAVEN!!!!" I've had enough of being a golf widow already!

Actually, yes. My husband. But ruling a planet or something like that.
