If one trusts in Jesus alone for salvation then they are a Christian regardless of the church they attend as long as the church worships Jesus as God like the Catholic Church has always worshiped Jesus as God. Nowhere in the Bible does it state that Jesus will look at the church that one attended in deciding who enters Heaven. The Bible states the only requirement for salvation and entering Heaven is to trust in Jesus alone for salvation, which means that Jesus will only look at who trusted in Him alone for salvation in deciding who enters Heaven.

Entrance into Heaven does not require that one leave a church for another church. Nowhere in the Bible is church attendance in any church mentioned as being required for salvation and entering Heaven upon ones demise. The only requirement for salvation and entering Heaven the Bible gives is to trust in Jesus alone for salvation(Justification By Faith in Jesus alone).

That is absolutely ridiculous to state falsely that the Catholic Church is a thousand times more evil than ISIS. ISIS and Islam murders individuals for not being Muslim. The Catholic Church does not murder anybody.
While the world looks on these Moslem fanatics are taking crazy to a whole new level β β β β β β It's time for all the civilized world to come down on these maniacs β β β Hundreds of bombing missions a day and boots on the ground coming right in behind the bombing campaign doing a gun and run β β β Just put them down and leave the rest to God
A message needs to be sent to all these fanatics that they will be crushed if they're going to act like this --- These Islamic radicals are burning people, beheading people, taking Christians hostage and killing them, raping women and children, selling women and children ------- The atrocities committed by these sickos are far too numerous to list.
I pray Almighty God will move the hearts of leaders around the world to band together and put an end to this swiftly β β β There will be collateral damage in war but these devils must be dealt with and with the greatest prejudice
Jesus said "many will Come in my name, saying I am the Christ,". Unless I see every knee bowing and every tongue confessing, Jesus Chist is Lord (Philippians ch. 2 v 10-11), I will not be deceived.. Foe He will be the One. Come Lord Jesus and take your place.
Since 1,400 children have been found illegally abandoned in Indiana since 1999, I would have to agree that this program is necessary.
According to the article: "Critics say the boxes do nothing to address poverty and other societal issues that contribute to unwanted newborns." Yet not having the boxes potentially puts newborns at risk. Moreover, just because mothers may use these boxes, may not equal to newborns being "unwanted." Moses' mother found herself in a situation where she put her baby (Moses) into a water-proof basket and put it/him in the reeds in the water by the banks of a river. Moses' life was saved through the heroic act of his mother, and I have no doubt that this will/has been the case with other women.
As for addressing the needs of the poor, I look to the Words of our Lord Jesus: "[Y]ou always have the poor with you, and whenever you want, you can do good for them."
Give to food banks, soup kitchens, and other ministries whenever God places a cheerful urge to give to the poor on your hearts - peace!

Greetings Carl, my husband has ad blockers installed on my computer and therefore I did not know there was rude images until you mentioned it. Maybe look into installing an ad blocker so you don't have to see offensive ads my brother? God bless, hope, and peace be with you!

I agree, and we should pray for their captors to repent! To pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ and to pray for our enemies is an honour Christ has bestowed upon we His people...
I used to attend Bible Studies and Prayer Groups at a Baptist Church years ago and would listen to the testimonies of the elderly people. One person stated that they remembered many years previous, when any members were ill, that the pews would fill with believers praying for their brothers and sisters in need. She mourned as we looked out at the empty pews in the old church while an elder member was gravely ill.
May our prayers go up as a sweet incense unto God our Father through our Lord Jesus Christ on behalf of our brothers and sisters...
Well, all I can say is if the Christ of the Muslims is said to be here, he is not the Christ that I am looking for. Muslims believe that when their rendition of Jesus returns, he will apologize for making folks think that he was God. No, when my Lord returns, I will go up and meet Him in the clouds. When my Lord returns, He will defeat His enemies, to include the same Muslims that this article is speaking about.
Matthew 24:4. And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.5. for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6.And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
23. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.25.Behold, I have told you before.26. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.27.For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
We live in a day when it seems the electorate has been reduced to the choice of who or what they're voting against. After the John Warner Act which begun the process of doing away with Habeus Corpus and Posse Comitatus (a process further accelerated by the NDAA passed by Obama under the cover of darkness in 2011), the increased government promotion of Sodomite marriage (even in the military), and Obamacare, please forgive me if I am not exactly moved by whether or not marijuana is legalized. http://images.sa-media.com/images/smilies/embarrassment.gif
