Well when I get a ranch in Eastern Colorado I will not be working on the ranch that often as I will be busy traveling around the country with the small Country Music/Country Gospel Band performing and making money.

What I can quickly say now, I guess, is that you know what baptism represents, and I know what baptism represents, but your religion puts a whole new unbiblical, doctrinal spin on baptism as to what it does and imparts, according to them, not to mention that a mere baby can't rejoice in their new place in Christ which baptism symbolizes...a new birth; a passing from the old to the new, from lost to found, sinner to saint.
There is nothing unscriptural about Infant Baptism since Infant Baptism is just a dedication of infants to Jesus and does not impart salvation. Just like Adult Baptism is just a dedication of adults to Jesus and does not impart salvation.
What that Colorado Mega Evangelical Protestant Church is doing by having armed guards is called deterrence, making sure that protection is in place in case a crazed individual with a gun tries to enter the church with a gun and the intent of causing homicidal destruction.
It certainly is a possibility that God has let bird flu into the United States to produce a shortage of eggs as a judgment upon the United States for supporting abortion, homosexuality, artificial birth control and every other perversion under the sun.

The Catholic Church should really tell Pelosi and every other Catholic who supports abortion, homosexuality and artificial birth control to either fall in line with Catholic teaching and be against abortion, homosexuality and artificial birth control or be excommunicated from the Catholic Church.

Now if these excommunicated catholics believe that Jesus is their Savior, which is your sole litmus test, (name it claim it) then how can they be excommunicated. All of those you want excommunicated would say Jesus is their Savior. I think you are not only brainwashed about soteriology, but are brainwashed about what the RC teach. Or you are simply a parrot troll. I think you have read Jim from Lincolns inadequacy of moralism link one too many times.
The Catholic Church is not satan's church. Satan's church is the Church of Satan founded by Lavine. Most Catholics have not embraced Jesus as their Personal Savior and do not trust in Him alone for salvation. The only criteria that I believe for a Catholic to be excommunicated is to support abortion, homosexuality and artificial birth control.
Well good that Francis favorable rating in the United States drops because he is a first class nut job and should be replaced with a conservative Pope who is against abortion and homosexuality and would tell the Bishops to tell those Catholics who support abortion, homosexuality and artificial birth control to either fall in line with Catholic teaching and be against abortion, homosexuality and artificial birth control or be excommunicated from the Catholic Church.
Christopher, Don't you accept the Apostles and Nicene Creeds as Statements of Faith? The Apostles and Nicene Creeds state "We believe in one God the Father Almighty maker of Heaven and earth. We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of God. We believe in the Holy Spirit the Lord and giver of life." which are all biblical statements. What doctrines did Luther believe in that contradict the Bible? The doctrine of Infant Baptism is not unscriptural because Infant Baptism is just a dedication of infants to Jesus and does not impart salvation just as Adult Baptism is just a dedication of adults to Jesus and does not impart salvation. The Lutheran doctrine of Holy Communion is not unscriptural because it states that Jesus is present in, with and under the bread and wine, which is totally different then the Catholic doctrine of Holy Communion.
Francis is obsessed with Satan because he is insane and psychotic.
Dave, Cease with this nonsense insanity that the Catholic Church is a Cult. A Cult does not worship Jesus as God. But the Catholic Church has always worshiped the biblical and historical Jesus as God and therefore is not a Cult. Luther did not believe the Catholic Church is a Cult because he was not insane and he knew that a Cult does not worship Jesus as God.
Christopher000 wrote: John, Michael is right. All you need to do is a little honest research, using your own religions catecism and various councils to get to the plain truth. You won't need any outside resources as they convict and expose themselves. Once you have that information, just compared it to what God Himself has to say. The Roman Catholic Mary is very clearly not the humble, earrhly mother of Christ in the flesh who herself needed a Savior. Not even close. The mere fact that you don't know this shows how very little you even care about what they teach. As long as you're comfortable though, right? That's all that matters.
Christopher and Michael H, Luther and the other Protestant Reformers believed the Catholic Church believes in the biblical Virgin Mary like Protestant Churches do. The Apostles and Nicene Creeds which are the Statement of Faith of the Catholic Church states "We believe in one God the Father Almighty. We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of God. We believe in the Holy Spirit the Lord and giver of life." which is the One True God and the biblical and historical Jesus the RCC has always worshiped.
Michael Hranek wrote: JohnY Why don't you be honest, really honest with yourself for once. The RCC exalts the name of the rc "mary" and only gives token lip service to the Name of Jesus (take your pick from all sorts of "jesuses", little baby needs his momma, lifeless piece of bread jesus, still on the cross jesus, but NOT the Jesus of the Bible Jesus) Embracing any of the false rc jesuses or any other imaginary in the minds of men jesuses will save nobody BTW God's requirements are: Repentance and Faith NOT an empty lip service prayer only to escapte hell (in no way one to be genuinely and truly saved from sin)
What is this nonsense that the RCC believes in a different virgin mary and does not believe in the biblical Virgin Mary? What is this nonsense the RCC believes in and worships a different jesus? The Apostles and Nicene Creeds(The Statement of Faith of the RCC) states "We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of God" which is the biblical and historical Jesus the RCC has always believed in and worshiped. The only Jesus I have always believed in and worshiped and to whom I trust in alone for salvation is the biblical and historical Jesus. I suppose you believe the Lutheran Church worships a different jesus?
Gendron is wrong on several counts. The JW and Mormon organizations don't exalt the name of Jesus since they don't worship Jesus as God. But the RCC has always exalted the name of Jesus since the RCC has always worshiped Jesus as God. The RCC does not preach or believe in another jesus because the Apostles and Nicene Creeds state "We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of God", which is the biblical and historical Jesus the RCC believes in and worships.
Dave, Even if a Catholic who has embraced Jesus as Savior and trusts in Him alone for salvation does not leave the Catholic Church they will still enter Heaven upon their demise since they fulfilled the only requirement for salvation there is and that is they trusted in Jesus alone for salvation.
