We either have a hypocrite or a moniker thief on the forum:

"Dave, please, find the meaning of backbitting: "malicious talk about someone who is not present", which in this medium materialises by talking not directly to the person, but to a third party in order to scorn or cause distress, vilify, defame, or for character assassination of the first. This has not been my practice."
From the closed thread, John UK clearly referring to me, wrote to Bmac:
"total depravity, origin sin, and imputed sin ... Get it wrong on this, and heresies will abound inevitably..."
Bmac, again clearly referring to me, replied to John UK:
"We should be aware that Scripture warns us that some doctrines can have their origins in the very pit of hell, (see verse below mentioning doctrines of devils) and those propagating them may pass by equivocation as servants of Christ, when in reality they are Satan's. (2 Cor 11)"
so they went their way. Then CHRISTIAN gave three leaps for joy, and went on
"Thus far did I come laden with my sin, Nor could aught ease the grief that I was in,Till I came hither. What a place is this! Must here be the beginning of my bliss! Must here the burden fall from off my back! Must here the strings that bound it to me crack!Blest cross! blest sepulchre! blest rather be The Man that there was put to shame for me!"
He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.¬† And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.¬†
What nobody can figure out, John,is why, knowing what you know, you would ever remain within such a religious system. You even go so far as to say you will raise any children Catholic and be buried in one of the churches cemetarys. Your heart can't be aligned with two diametrically opposed faiths, whether you pretend this or that or not. You're either fully with Him, or you're fully against Him. There is no grey area. Yes, I considered it progress, but was floored when you said you would never, ever leave Roman Catholicism. Sounds like you're trying to cover all the bases, just in case. The false religious system of Rome is plainly against Him as is evidenced by their own manmade doctrines, rituals, and dogmas, etc., and you sit right in the middle of it all, faithfully every weekend in plain support by the mere fact that you're amongst them.
My question would be: just what are Trump's "abhorrent policies" and "current actions" that "reveal a deep commitment to white supremacy"? A typical tactic; to throw out vitriol but neglect to specify in any logical manner just why he believes these things.
Agreed MS...very disturbing, and I can't even begin to process such logic. Reminds me of the "Christian" sodomites who have searched far and wide for biblical loopholes to justify and continue on with their wicked things.
Dave, please, find the meaning of backbitting: "malicious talk about someone who is not present", which in this medium materialises by talking not directly to the person, but to a third party in order to scorn or cause distress, vilify, defame, or for character assassination of the first. This has not been my practice. When a comment is due, it is presented to the person. If it is discerned not conducive to do so, it is given as a general comment for collective use or considerarion, but not as a personal harassment with unpleasant, deriding or hurtful words.
John UK wrote: It seems to me to be a modern thing. You change to a modern Bible, start wearing modern clothes, cease singing the psalms which are clearly ordered by God, begin compiling hymn books of your 1000 favourite hymns, introduce an electric organ instead of a piano, shorten the sermons so you have more time for "worship", take away anything that smacks of solemnity, become light and frothy, stop preaching on hell because it upsets people, cease to have church discipline (authority of elders), and what happens? What suddenly appears out of nowhere? CCM and all that entails ... the church inside having such a whale of a time without him and quite content to have it so? He scratches the word Ichabod on the church door and departs. It becomes just another apostate "church". When sinners walk into a church assembled, the first thing they should feel is perturbed. That is, disturbed by the presence of Almighty God.
John, your comment here came to my mind while watching this service: tinysa.com/sermon/7161780503 Wondering if you would enjoy this kind of reverent worship. Regards

Because you deceive him and don't let him know you faithfully attend a RCC and faithfully partake in RCC sacraments including the godless mass and you hope to have a RCC wedding and raise your pipe dream children from your pipe dream wedding as RCC. Tell the elders that, because as a church member you have a responsibility to be open to church discipline for the lifestyle you live, so it IS their business. Then lets see if the non-denominational church still votes you into its membership. You already inferred they don't have an issue with these things.
But remember the Bible says
Providing for honest things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men.
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.¬†Let us walk honestly, as in the day
