One final thought, any of us who are true Christians whom the Lord may have placed in a sphere of influence or by other lawful means should work to support freedom for all, even for those with whom we disagree.
While I would never support papal doctrines, I would adamantly defend their freedom to hold them even if they themselves would deny such freedoms to me.
Rubio said the "next step is to argue that the teachings of mainstream Christianity, the catechism of the Catholic Church, is hate speech, and that's a real and present danger."
If I read this correctly, he is equating Christianity with what is taught in Roman Catholic Catechism. While I am glad he qualified Christianity with the term "mainstream" most readers today might miss the point. It is not a mainstream Christianity that needs to be fought for, but a biblical one. The papal catchechism hardly reprensents the Bible's teaching on the things it affirms and in many, many affirmations is diabolically opposed to Holy Scripture.
In the days of the Reformation it was the lack of the Bible and its availability that the papal antichrist used to keep the people under their authority until the light of God's Word and truth broke the bondage. Now, it seems, the deception is more pernicious in keeping people in ignorance by suggesting that the Scriptures agree with these same papal heresies even though we can read for ourselves. It is like Jesus said that even if one were to rise from the dead, they would not believe.
May the Lord Jesus, the ONLY Head of His Church, be merciful to us and protect His elect from these great decepti
That is bizarre. We read to our children most every night during family worship to instruct in the ways of God, Scripture, and theological education. All men are able to do so with their children provided they can read.
H.L. Oliver: is that quote from the Free Presbyterian Magazine?
As a comment to this article, perhaps there is truth in it. We know persecutions are rampant in Pakistan and growing. But this Shoebat fellow, research it. I do not understand the spirit of these men which seems so opposite to the spirit of Christ. Also, it is no surprise coming out of WND. Their honesty in journalism is lacking many times.
Maybe he is right, the Lord knows. I want to be ready. Ready for the Lord's coming. Ready for persecutions should they come. Ready to live truly and holy before God in times of peace and times of trouble. O Lord, help me work while there is freedoms to do so. Give your people grace and help to stand in the evil day.
Praise the Lord. I think this research underscores the importance of the means by which God ordinarily works to bless and bring salvation to His elect. I would imagine that those who still yet left the faith of Christ likely remained upright citizens. But woe to those who are given so much light and still reject the Gospel.
In the article she is quoted as saying she is not a Christian. The article also states she left her "evangelical" faith. Her lifestyle is evidence that she is not a true Christian, and so from her own confession she now denies Christ.
