Oh, a new nickname for his Unholiness Light Fingered Franny! Pope Confesses He Stole Priest's Cross from Casket. So, John Y., if you have this Pope do your funeral mass, make sure your coffin is closed and locked! You might be stripped naked before you make it to the cemetery! Good thing this priest wasn't Elvis, no telling what this Pope would have stolen off his body! The Sacraments, doesn't help any before or after they have died.
"Age is a state of mind,bounded on the north by resignation,on the east by memory,on the south by understanding,and on the west by service". P.D. Wilmeth. It takes a lifetime of preparation to produce a worthy aged Christian.The boundaries must be maintained in good repair, for if one of them is either neglected or overused,the life will not be preserved to its best advantage.

As bt the book noted...submit, be submissive, etc. Husbands are also instructed to love their wives as they love their bodys. The husband is the spiritual head, but I believe loving your wife includes talking things over, and settling differences by meeting in the middle if possible, not heavy handed dictatorship.
Very well said,Christopher. Likewise, ye husbands,dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife,as unto the weaker vessel,and as being heirs together of the grace of life;that your prayers be not hindered. 1Peter3:7AV

What a wonderful testimony of Gods grace has Mrs.Elliot been her entire life. I have read several of her books and have gleaned much from this precious sister. "Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised". Proverbs 31:30 AV
Hello Dolores...was glad to see your post In 2 Peter 1:5-11 we are told of seven things we should "add" to our faith.one of those seven is brotherly kindness, and I see that one in you shining bright! As I understand it's meaning it is simply "love of the brethren". May we all posess this virtue not only outward toward each other but also inward in unity of heart and mind in the recognition that we possess a common life and have a common Lord and Saviour and destiny and are fighting in a common cause. All of Gods Best to you and your family.
Dolores....please take these admonitions that are given concerning Dopey.You are a sister in Christ and we see him manipulating you with his silliness and flattery.He deceived us all for a season! But read over all his posts and see how he twists scripture for his agenda. He has maligned many of the Godly brethren on this forum. I hope I have not become your enemy because I tell you the truth. In Christian love and concern.
At best our judgment is fallible,and there may be cases such as that of Simon Magus,as is recorded in Acts 8. He was accepted as a believer,on his profession of faith,and was baptized along with others. His later conduct showed plainly that he had "neither part nor lot in this matter" so he was rejected.
Michael Hranek wrote: Lurker I believe the RCC is the Great Harlot because of God's own identification of Rome as Babylon in context in Revelation, and she has been that whore, the mother of harlots, since she was first founded (history records how she has grown in apastasy, played politics both secular and religous, slaughtered untold numbers os saints, non-Catholics and even some of her own people who went afoul of her own leadership and dared oppose her error and sins. Today she employs massive disinformation to appear righteous and Christian But that does not mean the call to 'Come out of her My people' begins in Revelation, in the Tribulation, that call is valid now, was so in the past long before the Reformation, and will continue right up to God's judgment upon her, which is future. So in the meanwhile I believe it is safe to say this is the time to do all we might rightfully do to see Catholic people saved, and warn others of her whoredom.
Michael..have you ever heard of Mike Gendron and his ministry proclaiming the gospel? He has a real burden for RC.
Dolores wrote: In a very, kind and loving way gives her views that make me see that my views are ok on this subject. One thing she brought out that we are what we read and need to read more of the older( JC Ryle, etc.) authors which I intend to do more of and less of other non edifying things or reads. Great article.
A Blessed Lords Day...Dolores, You can not go wrong reading J.C Ryle...he has blessed me so much over the years, His writings on the four Gospels of NT plus his wonderful book "Holiness" I would highly recommend!
