Now I don't mind someone telling me that I shouldn't discriminate against them, but when they tell me I can't speak out against them or tell them they will face God's wrath unless they repent and believe, then they have gone too far. They are defining discrimination to suit them and are in effect discriminating against me. But, I thank God that I am a stranger and a pilgrim in this world and it is only a passing puff of smoke until I am in my final home where none of these things will ever be an issue. Anyway, there is no sin that I can think of that destroys a society more than homosexuality or perhaps abortion. Come Lord Jesus, come quickly, amen.
John y. Jesus Christ and His disciples Never called unbelievers vile hateful names as what you continue to do in your repetitive rants. Jesus Christs strongest language was to religious leaders for their rejection of Him and His gospel. Kinda like the religion that you 'embrace' defend and belong to
John UK wrote: Amen Dorcas. I'll add another one... 1 Timothy 3:16 KJV (16) 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.
John And.. "Who (Jesus Christ) was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification ". Romans 4:25. Those are shouting ground words
Anne wrote: Dorcas, All's well here! Keeping busy. The neighbor acquaintance of mine who rejected the RCC but her husband has not has been essentially forced to "live out on the rooftop". It's become, strange, for lack of a better word. We continue to pray for her husband who is really angry about it all; it's effecting the children terribly.
--------- Anne, Yes Anne, unfortunately ' religious' people get very angry when they are confronted with the Truth. I will remember her in my prayer time that the Lord will comfort and strengthen her during this most difficult season... We know first hand what it is to have RC family turn away and reject biblical Christianity in favor of 'their religion'.
She is blessed to have you as a friend and neighbor Good to see you post again sister. Blessings to you and your family.
What person who claims to be born from above would make such hateful, vile comments concerning unbelievers continually on a public forum? ----- The rotten fruit of decisional regeneration. Many are deceived by it!
PS wrote: As a former Catholic and a student of a Catholic School, I can testify that it is a religion of works, one practicing those works can never know if they are saved and will go to heaven or not. I could only hope that I was good enough. Yes I prayed to God, Mary and the saints but I had no idea what " Jesus dying for my sins "meant. I also read the bible but knew nothing of the wonderful truths it held all the promises of God to those who would trust Him! When I heard the truly Good News and believed I was so so happy and it did take time for me to learn the true message the scripture reveals but the gospel of Christ is clear all who come to Christ receive eternal life! No sacraments, no priests , no praying to anyone but the LORD! No mediator except Christ! I was only 19 , I was so glad to be free of the garbage I was taught by the Roman church I threw out statues, medals, rosaries, it all went! I am soon to be 62 but I do not miss any of the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church those doctrines are just like the chains they used in the Middle Ages to chain the bible to the pulpit! Only they chain the hearts of men to a false god and false teaching! There is nothing redeemable in the false doctrine of that cult!
Ladybug, agree. Waste of time to continue to go around and around. Michael, I listen to sermons that preach the sovereign grace of God, and those that preach the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ and exhort sinners to come to Him. I follow no man nor denomination...I follow Jesus Christ who loved me from the foundation of the world, and when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth His Son, to redeem me that I might receive my adoption as His blood bought child. Hallelujah What a Saviour To God Be The Glory Salvation is of the Lord THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
Then I who was dead in trespasses and sins, He quickened. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. Oh what grace, mercy, and kindness was shown to this hell bound sinner. Thank you, Lord Jesus. Maranatha!
