Shane, I agree with your post 100%. I have engaged said poster/troll many times and have realized it is futile and wearisome. He comes on here to defend his beloved religion...let him alone he is joined to idols.
The religion of Rome can imitate true biblical Christianity...but only so far. The dead false doctrine it teaches cannot bring forth genuine spiritual life from sinners dead in their sins. It's deception is obvious to all those born from above...
@Wiliam S. I give a hearty Amen to your exhortation to read The Hurt of Hearing the Mass. Also a very good sermon on the subject: Stephen Pollock Mass, No Place For Christians. 4/18/2011. Here on Sermon Audio.

He uses these trials to refine His people, making them more into the image of our great Savior. I want to share this excellent quote from Spurgeon concerning the brethren... "I wish, brothers and sisters, that we could all imitate "the pearl oyster"â€”A hurtful particle intrudes itself into its shell, and this vexes and grieves it. It cannot reject the evil, but what does it do but "cover" it with a precious substance extracted out of its own life, by which it turns the intruder into a pearl! Oh, that we could do so with the provocations we receive from our fellow Christians, so that pearls of patience, gentleness, and forgiveness might be bred within us by that which otherwise would have harmed us." â€”Charles Spurgeon
Ladybug, Many thanks for posting C. Spurgeon's quote. Oh, for grace to put it into action...
Mourner, Good Lord's Day. Thank you for 'The Expert Searcher' was balm for my soul. Was a blessing for us to be able to encourage our sister today..the Lord knew just what she needed. The One who will one day change our vile body and make it like His glorious body is alive, See Hebrews 10:37. In sickness and in health, in life and in death, let us lean continually on Him.
Dolores, Will continue in prayer for your hubby. Wonderful news concerning your Grandson,will you be attending his graduation? Remember: "Cast thy burden upon the Lord and He shall sustain thee: He sall never suffer the righteous to be moved". Psalm 55:22.
Today's feminism is not so much about equal pay for equal work. It has taken on a more evil and sinister face as totally wanting to blur the lines concerning womanhood. The lesbian, sodomite,transgendered, cross dressing, skinny jeans wearing,sagging britches, individuals of our country are shoving down our throats what and how male and female are to be in society. This country has been turned over.. Pray, pray and pray. I fear for our young people.

1517, Being clear in my comments doesn't seem to be my strong point today. Romish priests do not know the gospel of grace, or will not preach it because they are anathematized by their organization. So my point was in answer to your post to John Y concerning them preaching the gospel... They neither know it, nor possess it. All they can preach is sacramentalism and works.
Do you ever actually read the comments, Jim? I was commenting on what 1517 had posted. RC cult priests can not give to others( the gospel) what they themselves have no knowledge or understanding of, or are possessors of!
