TIL the Roman Catholic basilica and shrine is the tallest building in Washington DC
As a Catholic, it's nice knowing that all habitable buildings in DC are dwarfed by the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. IN GOD WE TRUST.

I'd personally rather Christians brag about the goodness and mercy of God and His son, Jesus Christ, than the size of our church buildings.

Well you know, the bigger the building the better the religion right?

It seems to be the opposite, actually. Those focused on worldly riches tend to overlook the riches of God's grace in salvation through Jesus Christ. Grace stands in opposition to works (in terms of salvation), and those focused on the worldly pursuits tend to have a very works-oriented view of salvation.

His Protestant pastor told him. Since it’s not in the Bible it must be false.

One could fit a LOT of 'soon to be molested' children in that huge building.

It's more a jab at the argument we aren't a Christian nation when a Catholic basilica dominates our capital's skyline.

a large gaudy building does not make America a Christian nation. although it would fit in fine with the super churchs the other quacks beg for money from

Said like a true, blasphemous protestant. Jesus told Peter, "Thou shalt build thy church upon that rock, and maketh sure that it standeth tall for all the false worshipers to beith jelly."

Yeah, I get that, but I still don't like to see Christians brag about the size of their buildings. A nation isn't more or less Christian because it's got a tall Christian church building sitting in the capital city. Get a mosque to make some renovations to make it taller and then claim we're an Islamic nation.

There are a lot of professing Christians in this country that I'm certain are going to Hell when they die unless God is merciful and allows them repentance. Aligning yourself with a particular religion doesn't save anyone. Only a saving trust in Jesus Christ does, and I guarantee you that He doesn't care how tall our church buildings are.

My family and I toured the lower section and went to Mass in the basilica... GLORIOUS! BTW, did you know Bob Hope and his wife, Delores, donated the money to build one of the chapels in the lower section?

Washington Post article regarding the Bob and Delores Hope donation

Someone is not familiar with Matthew 25: 31-46. Christ could not speak more plainly.

Totally makes up for having a globalist cuck Pope.
