(quote) Michael-556947 said: "The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! 'Father, the atheists?' Even the atheists. Everyone! And this Blood makes us children of God of the first class. We are created children in the likeness of God and the Blood of Christ has redeemed us all. And we all have a duty to do good. And this commandment for everyone to do good, I think, is a beautiful path towards peace. If we, each doing our own part, if we do good to others, if we meet there, doing good, and we go slowly, gently, little by little, we will make that culture of encounter: We need that so much. We must meet one another doing good. 'But I don't believe, Father, I am an atheist!' But do good: We will meet one another there."
Very nicely said, Michael.

(quote) Michelle-985969 said: Exactly we Catholics are called to be obedient. Not everyone else.
Obedient to whom or what?

The natural law, the rule of conduct which is prescribed to us by the Creator in the constitution of the nature with which He has endowed us, applies to every human being that was ever born and every human that will ever be born. It is the same now as it was at the beginning of time, and it will remain unchanged until the end of time.

The ten commandments of the Decalogue, the instructions given to us in Scripture and through tradition, the moral teachings of the Church, etc. are all ultimately expressions of or explanations of the natural law.

Some Church laws are derived from the natural law; these are binding on all men. Other Church laws are disciplinary in nature, and as such are binding only on Catholics.

(quote) Michelle-985969 said: Jesus changed many of their laws such as healing on the Sabbath, For him, it was much more important to love than follow a law. Sir I don't know whether if it was the Pharisee's law or the Sadducees and really be a nitpicker about the issue shows something about you as a person.

Anyway my whole issue is that it is very dangerous to impose. The Church did in the past during the Inquisition and unfortunately that is what most atheists hate about Christianity.
The laws Jesus changed were laws were disciplinary laws that were instituted by men and not of divine origin (i.e., not rooted in the natural law).

Christ warned us that society will hate those who follow Him. While Christians have certainly made mistakes throughout the course of history, using how others feel about their actions as the basis for evaluating the merit of those actions is clearly incorrect and defies reason unless one rejects Scripture.

I have revised my previous response to remove the reference to the error you identified.

The change does not affect the fact that your assertion that suicide is technically murder is incorrect.
