Lurker.. yes indeed how very wicked. The Jesus Christ of the romanist religion and the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible are polar opposites. The catholic Jesus did not fully and finally atone for all sin. He needs 'help' from Mary, indulgences, the sacraments, a mass, and the fictitious purgatory. The RC Jesus only offers the mere possibility of salvation----conditioned upon good works and obedience to their organization.
Having orthodox sounding doctrinal statements is no guarantee that the words and concepts used have the same meanings as in the Bible. Many are deceived, we pray that they will be turned from this satanic darkness.
And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. 1Timothy 3:16.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights,with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. Of His own Will begat He us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures. James 1:17-18.
But thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and forsookest them not. Nehemiah 9:17b. As for our redeemer, the Lord of hosts is His Name, the Holy One of Israel. Isaiah 47:4.
My Father: "Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to My Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto My Father, and your Father; and My God, and your God. John 20:17.

Yes indeed, the large majority of our society "hides it's eyes", while the government and the medical profession officially commits child murder. Far worse, many who call themselves 'Christians' condone the practice, some who even post on SA.
John y, Once again you speak falsehood concerning what your institution believes and teaches concerning Mary. There are four Marian dogmas: 1. She is the mother of God. 2. Her perpetual virginity. 3. That she was born without sin, i.e. immaculate conception. 4. She was assumed into Heaven. ------------ None are scriptural. It is a pagan goddess (Queen of Heaven) worshipping religion.
Hi s c, One of the finest books written in this century comparing what popery traditions believe compared to the Word of God is: The Gospel According to Rome by James G. McCarthy. It is very clear and well documented.
Matthew 6:1a-2 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets,that they may have glory of men.Verily I say unto you, they have their reward.
pennnned wrote: well, there's the rub Jim, is that you can convince yourself that you are in the "literalist" camp and can atone for yours sins because of the "group" you belong to, whereas a long litany of believers on here have been putting out amazing links and sermons, which really direct you literally to the new covenant and what it is. In the end, it won't be what group or church you belong to, nor the list of other religions that are worse off that will save. it is those who have been washed by the blood of the Lamb, who are in covenant with Christ who will be passed over on judgment day. Without covenant with Christ, as your King and Messiah, what standing do you have? What standing does anyone have? If you built a thousand kingdoms for God, but rejected the gospel of Christ to build His Kingdom, what have you built?

I have trolled you here and I beg your forgiveness, I have sinned before God and am paying dearly, please I beg of you to forgive me and pray for the survival of my family as we are in that much peril, pray that God takes me quickly or that He provide an escape, I beg this in Jesus Precious name, Jesus I beg Thee please save me, amen

Is there nothing else happening in the news that we have to almost daily read about every time "Sally and Barbara " or "Rick and Sam" got there feelings hurt in regards to their fictitious wedding? or every time Franklin Graham makes a comment? We should be informed about the advancement of evil on the world stage... but, Surely there is more... Besides, we have to read the same rehashed comments over and over.
Shane, I agree. Same-o same-o. Maybe a testimony page where our Lord and Saviour is glorified and talked about would be more in order.. "Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon His Name". Malachi 3:16
John Y, You are spreading more lies concerning your religious institution. ~~~~~~~~~ From the catholic catechism....I quote: 964 Mary's role in the church is inseparable from her union with Christ and flows directly fom it."This union of the mother with the Son in the work of SALVATION is made manifest from the time of Christ s virginal conception up to His death". 973 By pronouncing her "fiat" at the annunciation and giving her concent to the Incarnation, Mary was already collaborating with the whole work her Son was to accomplish. She is mother wherever He is Saviour and Head of the mystical body.
There is quite a bit more...but don't want to weary everyone. As all can see, this blasphemous religion is no more Christian than Mormonism.

Think A Denial of the Authority of Scripture A Different God (they adore the same one as the Muslims CCC 841) They have a different Jesus (baby jesus and lifeless piece of bread jesus, sometimes infant of Prague) A Different Mary (Queen of Heaven, supposedly Comediatrix of all graces, apparitions (demonic impersonations)) A false different cursed Gospel RC Sacraments Confess of sins to a priest (priestcraft, kissing cousin to witchcraft) The Blasphemous Mass the heartbreaking myth of purgatory and Baby Baptism (sprinkling) not believers baptism So it anti "your (really theirs) ONLY problem" But far far worse And you have a problem If I have not worded this the best I can I hope you still get the picture
