The problem is that many Christian seminaries are establishing LGBT organizations throughout the campus at a furious rate. The naive viewpoint of " open dialogue " with homosexuals or drag queens is anti Christian.
Well that Baptist Seminary in Visalia, California that my Great Nephew will be attending to become a Baptist Pastor is totally anti homosexual.

What it states in Ephesians 2:8-9 means the same as surrendering ones life to Christ by grace through faith and placing trust in Him alone by grace through faith. I received a housing voucher that will pay for the rent and utilities on an apartment in the small town I reside in. And after I move out of that homeless shelter I am residing in there is a good chance I will get hired on there full time as a Data Entry employee.

I am not an enemy of the cross if I attend a Baptist Church on Sunday mornings. I am very involved in various church activities at that Baptist Church from going to Adult Sunday School before worship, to fellowshipping before worship, to going to soup lunches and other meals after worship. I am also making a lot of friends at that Baptist Church, which is something I have never done before.
Mike New York, I tell Catholics on discussion forums and on Catholic Facebook Groups that salvation comes only by surrendering ones life to Christ and trusting in Him alone for salvation. Yesterday I stated on a Catholic Facebook Group after someone stated that one of the Catholic members of that Facebook Group had passed away that if she had not surrendered her life to Christ and had not trusted entirely in Him alone for salvation that she is burning in Hell for all eternity. And that individual who mentioned that the woman had passed away stated "How dare you make such a statement".

I only propagate the scriptural aspects of the RCC. And since I attend a Baptist Church on Sunday mornings then I am not a troll for Rome.
ladybug wrote: Here ya go - http://www.mtc.org/dtrcc.html So yes, the RCC denies the Christ of the Bible and in fact is a cult.
The late Born Again Presbyterian Minister D. James Kennedy stated that a Cult is a religious organization that denies that the biblical and historical Jesus is God. And since the Apostles and Nicene Creeds state "We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of God" then the RCC does not deny the Christ of the Bible and is not a Cult.
MS wrote: The roman catholic cult : Teaches a different gospel (which is no gospel). Denies salvation on the Merits of Christ ALONE. Denies the sufficiency of Christ's Atonement. Denies Christ's Sacrifice is Finished. Denies the sufficiency and authority of God's Word. Demands submission to "mediators" other than Christ. Those that have been born from above know these things. Those that are dead in trespasses and sins continue to believe them and are in strong delusion. Only two seeds on earth; Seed of the woman and the serpents seed.
The RCC is not a Cult because it does not fit the definition of a Cult(that I learned from the late Presbyterian Minister D. James Kennedy) which is a religious organization that denies that Jesus is God. And the RCC accepts the sufficiency and authority of God's Word because the RCC believes the Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God. I believe the RCC teaches a different gospel, that it denies salvation on the Merits of Christ alone, that it denies the sufficiency of Christ's Atonement, that it denies Christ's Sacrifice is Finished and that it demands submission to "mediators" other than Christ.

Plus someone who says you put no merit in church attendance for salvation, you have written several posts saying that your church membership in a non-denomination church proves your salvation. You can't have the best of both worlds.
Let's clear up something once and for all. You made an error by referring to that Baptist Church I attend on Sunday mornings as being a Non Denominational Church. And I am not yet a member of that Baptist Church. In the fall I will take membership preparation class during Adult Sunday School at that Baptist Church so I can become a member of that Baptist Church. Then I will give a testimony before the congregation on how I became saved and that I was Baptized via immersion. Then the congregation will vote on my becoming a member of that Baptist Church. Then the Elders will give their approval for me to become a member at that Baptist Church. And I stated that if I surrendered my life to Christ some 20 years ago and trust entirely in Him alone for salvation then I am saved. Pastor Steve accepts that I am saved.
Francis has to go and replaced with a conservative who will kick out of the priesthood all the liberal priests, Archbishops and Cardinals and just have conservative priests, Archbishops and Cardinals in the priesthood.
ladybug, Where did I equate church attendance with salvation? I have never equated church attendance with salvation. I have always stated that church attendance is totally superfluous to salvation. Luther and the other Protestant Reformers(who were all Born Again) believed that there are scriptural aspects of the Catholic Church because they knew that the readings from the Bible, the Lord's Prayer, prayers to Jesus, the Gloria(prayer to the Holy Trinity), the Apostles and Nicene Creeds, songs about Jesus and the words of Jesus from the Last Supper are all scriptural. Why do you state that I am unregenerate? If I surrendered my life to Christ some 20 years ago and trust entirely in Him alone for salvation then I am saved. If I was not really Born Again and under God's guidance then how do you explain that I started to attend that Baptist Church last September when I previously stated I would never attend a Baptist Church or any other Evangelical Protestant Church faithfully every Sunday? And not only that but I fellowship with individuals(which is something I have never done before) before worship, go to Adult Sunday School before worship, have made friends(something I rarely have done) at that Baptist Church, was Baptized via immersion, will become a member at Baptist Church.

Matthew 4:6-And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. It is a common practice of almost all cults and false churches to mingle truth with error. One would not take as money something from a Monopoly game but the counterfeits must appear to be the real thing. There are no Scriptural practices of the RCC. The only reason they say the so called Lord's prayer and quote from the Bible is because it is part of their sacramental works based system to gain them entrance into heaven. Thus it is also an abomination to a Holy God. I Corinthians 5:6-Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the WHOLE lump?
It is funny but Luther believed there are scriptural aspects of the Catholic Church because the Holy Spirit guided Luther to believe that there are scriptural aspects of the Catholic Church. And if I was not really saved and under God's guidance then I would never had started to attend that Baptist Church last September.
