Members, loosing and binding may be considered as being off topic. The original topic was The Sacrifice of Penance and Reconciliation. In my years in the Catholic faith, I never heard discussion of loosing and binding in regard to penance and/or reconciliation.
This is your first warning to go back to the original topic. This forum, perhaps, should have been opened in a Debates area due to the strong feelings for and against Catholic practices. I would be happy to move it, should lionroar0 contact me and request it. Otherwise, it it not a debate, and is simply a place for members to state their beliefs. Future debating and/or going off topic will result in posts being hidden or the thread being suspended.
