While all of those who are truly born-again are of a royal priesthood and only men should be preachers/pastors, we have a High Priest Who is seated at the right hand of God and there is no man now who should hold the title of "priest" as the rcc...nor is any man in a position to be our advocate.
I am incorrect in stating that the Bible states that only men are to be ordained to the clergy? The Bible clearly states that only men are to be ordained to the clergy.
I happen to know more about the climate in Eastern Colorado then you do since I have Second, Third and Fourth Cousins living on the farms in Eastern Colorado near Ramah and Calhan. I have been out there in the summer and the summer is dry and not humid and I have been out there in the winter and the snow didn't stay around long as it got warm.

So it is wrong to post against homosexuality and state that homosexuals will be spending eternity in Hell just like the Bible states?
ladybug, According to Baptist teaching I am Born Again and saved as I embraced Jesus as my Personal Lord and Savior and I trust in Jesus alone for salvation.
Stupid demon possessed homosexuals. When they come to the end of their days and meet Jesus and are tossed into Hell for all eternity then they will wish they had not paid attention to their god Satan into believing the satanic lie that homosexuality is not an abomination.

For your information I was taught by my Catholic parents to read the Bible almost everyday. I know the outline of the Bible so well that I can go to any book in the Bible within a matter of seconds.
are you saying wrote: that he erred in his thinking, you previously stated that was not possible "After one becomes Born Again they start being guided by the Holy Spirit what to believe and thus are without error in their thinking. And thus Luther was without error as he was guided by the Holy Spirit." John Yurich 12/15 4:42 a.m. please clear this up because you are making conflicting statements
If the Bible does not state that church attendance/membership in any church is required for salvation and entering Heaven upon ones demise then the Holy Spirit did not guide Luther into forming the Lutheran Church. But Luther did not err in leaving the Catholic Church and forming the Lutheran Church.
Jim Lincoln wrote: Yes, Pope Francis is correct! His Unholiness is correct about clerical error. He belongs to an organization that isn't biblical, q.v., The Scandal of the Catholic Priesthood. he is in danger in having the laity think for themselves. They will realize that the Catholic Church itself isn't Christian.
It is false to state that the entire Catholic Church is unbiblical because there are scriptural Catholic doctrines and scriptural parts to the Mass.
John UK, Why do you believe that a Catholic who has embraced Jesus as their Savior has to leave the Catholic Church and unite with a Protestant Church or they are not saved? That is totally unscriptural as nowhere in the Bible is church attendance/membership in any church mentioned as being required for salvation and entering Heaven upon ones demise. And thus a Catholic who has embraced Jesus as their Savior will remain saved and will enter Heaven upon their demise if they don't leave the Catholic Church and don't unite with a Protestant Church.
This proves once and for all that homosexuals are not tolerant of Christianity but are intolerant of Christianity. If they were tolerant of Christianity then they would not refuse to bake a cake that states homosexuality is wrong.
John UK wrote: Are you saying that under the guidance of the Holy Spirit Luther departed the RCC forever and never went back to it? How else could there have been a Lutheran Church?
Luther was under the guidance of the Holy Spirit naturally but not to leave the Catholic Church and form the Lutheran Church because if the Bible does not state that church attendance/membership in any church is required for salvation and entering Heaven upon ones demise then the Holy Spirit would not guide someone who is Born Again to leave the Catholic Church and unite with a Protestant Church.

After one becomes Born Again they start being guided by the Holy Spirit what to believe and thus are without error in their thinking. And thus Luther was without error as he was guided by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit guided Luther to retain the celebration of the Birth of Jesus in the Lutheran Church.
To those on here who are against celebrating the Birth of Jesus. Luther was under the guidance of the Holy Spirit to retain the celebration of the Birth of Jesus in the Lutheran Church. So naturally the Holy Spirit is not against celebrating the Birth of Jesus. Normal Evangelical Protestants don't care that Jesus was not born on 25 December as long as His birth is celebrated.
How many times do I have to state this before you grasp it? I ACCEPT THE FIVE SOLAS. So let's not have anymore of this nonsense that I don't accept the Five Solas. What is this nonsense about the unscriptural parts to the Bible? There is nothing unscriptural about the Bible. Everything in the Bible is of course scriptural. I donate money to the local Catholic Church that I belong to but that is not unscriptura
