He also freely committed adultery on his wife when travelling and simply said that God wouldn't want him to be lonely. IOW, he practiced adultery openly. I remember attending a church once when the pastor started using MLK as an example of true Christianity. I never went back. But I did the same thing when another pastor extolled Rick Warren. MLK was simply a social activist, no more, no less. And, I could care less what he thought.
The blacks would consider you to be a racist for making disparaging remarks about King Jr. I agree with everything you stated about King Jr. being a communist and committing adultery. He was engaging in adultery when Ray shot him at that motel in Memphis, Tennessee.
Rodney K. wrote: If only church-going saved, but alas it does not. Salvation is a work of the Holy Spirit upon the life of an individual which causes him to see himself as wicked, vile, and worthless before an Almighty, Righteous, and Just GOD. It causes him to forsake all confidence in himself or religious institutions and cast himself wholeheartedly and unashamedly into the arms of the only one who can and will save, Jesus! (NOT the RC"C", John)
Of course church attendance is totally superfluous to salvation.
You have no way of knowing for certain that Rubio is not a Christian just like your false assertion that I am not a Christian. If I embraced Jesus as Lord and Savior and trust entirely in Jesus alone for salvation then I am a Christian. Even if a Catholic who is Born Again(Embraced Jesus as Lord and Savior and trust in Him alone for salvation) does not leave the Catholic Church and does not unite with an Evangelical Protestant Church they will still enter Heaven because the Bible states nothing about church attendance in any church as a requirement for salvation.
Larkin should be told by his Bishop to either fall in line with Catholic teaching and be against abortion or be excommunicated from the Catholic Church. Any Catholic who supports abortion, homosexuality and artificial birth control should be told that they will be excommunicated from the Catholic Church unless they start being against abortion, homosexuality and artificial birth control.
What saith the Scripture wrote: communion meaning participation according to Strongs and Thayer. By your own admission that would be you, a willing participant. Romans 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
I only participate in the scriptural parts to the Mass, which means I don't participate in the unscriptural parts to the Mass. There are Anti Catholic ministers who have stated that a Catholic who embraced Jesus as Lord and Savior and trusts in Him alone for salvation but does not unite with an Evangelical Protestant Church will enter Heaven because they fulfilled the only requirement there is for salvation and entering Heaven.
John UK wrote: You HAVE to be a member of The Church of The FirstBorn to get to heaven. Every Christian is a member of that church. And that doesn't include you. Because for membership in that church.... Ye Must Be Born Again.
According to Romans 10:9 I am Born Again because I asked Jesus to become my Lord and Savior and I trust entirely in Jesus alone for salvation. There are Anti Catholic ministers who have stated that a Catholic who has embraced Jesus as Lord and Savior and trusts in Him alone for salvation and does not leave the RCC and unite with an Evangelical Protestant Church will enter Heaven.
What saith the Scripture wrote: 1 John 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 1 John 2:3-4 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. Tit 2:11-14 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. James 2:17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
I don't walk in darkness because I have rejected and repudiated the unscriptural RCC doctrines and the unscriptural parts to the Mass and I adhere only to the scriptural RCC doctrines and I only participate in the scriptural parts to the Mass. There are Anti Catholic ministers who state that a Catholic who embraced Jesus as Lord and Savior, has not left the RCC will enter Heaven.
John UK wrote: The problem you've got, John, is that not a single person here agrees with you, especially those who have been miraculously brought out of the evil Roman system. Jesus is not your Lord because you refuse to obey him. You do not bow down and worship him and do whatever he says. In effect, you are telling him that you will do whatever you want to do, and what right has he got to tell you what to do? You have no respect for the Almighty, rather you would hang out with unregenerate people. So you will go to the same place as them, which is eternal punishment in hell. You reveal no sign of having been born again, or you would find at least one here who agrees with you. But there are none. Ye must be born again, John.
Jesus never stated that church attendance in any church is required for salvation. The church that one attends is totally superfluous to salvation and entering Heaven. Romans 10:9 basically states to embrace Jesus as Lord and Savior and the Bible also states to trust in Jesus alone for salvation. There are Anti Catholic Evangelical Protestant ministers who state that if a Catholic embraced Jesus as their Lord and Savior and trusts in Him alone for salvation and does not leave the RCC that they will enter Heaven.
