    I wonder if Catholics are still trying to help humanity and its salvation? Are they tired of helping humanity?

    Well, I know a number of Catholics.
    Most of them are determined to help people when they are able.
    As for helping humanity, they seem to be happy with leaving that to the Church.
    The new Pope can deal with the big stuff.
    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.

    All decent people of faith make every effort to help where help is needed and that includes all of the great faiths. All decent people of no faith also engage in helping.

    I wonder if they have forgotten how to help someone?

    forgot? or just gave up caring?
    I think people do not care for a number or reasons.
    1) they were not taught how to care
    2) they cared but were taken advantage of so stopped caring
    3) found they got nothing in return so stopped caring
    4) carry an attitude that may or may not be influenced by mental illness issues, that caring is beneath them.
    5) are so hardened by horrible things in their lives that they have no room for caring.
    Maybe some of these overlap each other but I think caring still exists, it is just "less publicized"
    Humans prefer a horror story over a good deeds story it seems these days.

    Michiel I'm not sure how to respond here but will try. I do not deny that you have made some valid points. However I still think many do care simply because it is the right thing to do. I have been a servant most of my life and being able to help someone is all the pay I need. Knowing that I have helped is my reward.

    4. creating false images
    5. spreading confusion
    6. misleading others
    7. perverted lust for things

    Of course one can make the list as long as you need it to be, but I bet a list exist , if we are to truly define ourselves. If you need a list in your research, just find a group of humans; and it does not matter what those humans believe in or don't believe in, you'll have your list. Rather than deal with my list, which has no group, I would like to examine a group, and I am open for suggestions.

    Suggestions for a group should include a willingness to be examined, or a rep. who stands by them. The goal of the thread is the growth of humanity, and what will help that.
    All seven listed contributed to the advancement of humanity.

    I would add the all the shall not in the Bible and modern University moral/ethics classes.
