"This is still done, apparently."

Income to the Catholic church... In my mind the leaders of this church do not reflect Jesus. He lived simply while they live in luxury and make up their own rules.

There is only one Savior and we can't buy our way in nor can we save anyone else. Jesus is the only way, as He said in John 14:6, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Light. No man comes to the Father except through me." This one of the two passages that brought me to Him at the age of 59...

If you're curious the second passage is, Matthew 10:33 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

"but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven."

That's the way I see it.
