Frank, I think you need more study about oaths. An oath is sworn to God. So when one takes the oath of office he is making a promise to God to uphold the constitution and the law insofar as those laws are in accord with God's law. Those who violate their oath are also affirming that they deserve the curse of the law breaker. Now if the oath breaker escapes the punishment of man he will not escape the punishment of God,primarily because this is a violation of the 4th commandment, taking the Lord's name in vain.
Jim, you should really consider scriptures like this:
"Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God."

Lies. Obamacare pushers don't care anything about facts. Their too much in love with the prez to care. Tell your "fact" to a close relative of mine, who will lose his insurance coverage at the end of the year. He and his family were quite happy with their coverage, and didn't need nanny government to tell them it was "poor" which it wasn't. Now it's going to cost him much more for the least Obamacoverage. He's what you might label lower middle class by the way, and can't afford it. You're never going to come down to earth, are you, Jim? A shame. Grownups shouldn't have to learn things the hard way.

He responded by quoting Ephesisns 2:8, and asked me what part of "not of yourselves" did I not understand, clearly demonstrating to me that either he does not understand that verse, or was posting subterfuge again. Funny thing is, if I only needed one verse to prove they arent saved, that would be the one! They deny the first half of the verse, and believe it is of themselves. His response smacked of either hypercalvinism, or universalism, implying that they dont have to do anything (faith, repentance), they are just saved. I dont think he meant it that way, but thats how it came off.
Ephesians 2:8-9 is a relatively simple text for a believer. But them that are without, who try to explain it, come up with all sorts of bizarre interpretations, including the Roman Catholic salvation by effort. It's amazing, but yes, they do. The reason is a lack of comprehension as to what "grace" means. A Catholic will talk of grace all the day, but they do not mean the same thing as we do. This is where they trip up and fall in the ditch.

He is nothing more than a spiritually dead Romanist troll pretending to be a reformed believer. What could be worst? An unregenerated reformed catholic!

In this thread I found SteveR answering your question: 2/19/13 7:31 AM "Are you an open minded Roman Catholic who is here searching for answers, or are you beyond certain of your views and the churches doctrines, and you are here hoping to change some minds concerning the Roman religious system not being a Christian entity, but rather thoroughly anti-God and anti-Christ?"
His response, apparently when he was not yet in the home for the mentally disturbed , was as follows:
2/19/13 9:03 AM SteveR | upper Midwest So to answer your question, I am not a Roman Catholic, do think they need more reform, but consider them Christians.
