If you can name another poster that I might have missed; that would be great. So, you are saying that no one on this forum had been born again except you and our RC parrot. The above was a rhetorical question. I just wanted everyone to see what your comment really meant. You are ecumenical, plain and simply and believe in a name it claim it salvation without the evidence of fruit or doctrinal purity. And, Observer is a very wise brother in Christ. You cannot possibly know that, but he is.
Just because I attend the Catholic Church and not an Evangelical Church does not mean I am not really saved. That is totally against the Bible. The Bible states that the only requirement for salvation is to embrace Jesus as Savior and trust entirely in Him alone for salvation. Nothing about church attendance in any church including an Evangelical Church being required for salvation. Jesus will not look at the church that one attended in deciding who enters Heaven. He will only look at who had trusted in Him alone for salvation in deciding who enters Heaven.

They seem to really hate what they have the most in common with, e.g., http://tinyurl.com/z2fu7j2 (Roman Catholics, Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses) I find that comment a little strange coming out of you. Judges who can apply the Golden Mean and the Constitution are fine with me--radical left or right one are certainly not. Any Presidential or Congressional candidate that doesn't support universal healthcare--I don't support. I guarantee you that's no joke. Obamacare didn't go far enough.
I am a registered Republican so naturally I voted for Romney over Obama because Romney was in line with Republican policy of being against abortion and homosexuality. And it would have been better to have Romney as president over Obama regardless if Romney is a Mormon. Romney would have nominated a conservative judge to the Supreme Court and would have done something to curtail abortion and homosexuality.
Yes, there should be no debate on fruitcakeness because the Bible makes it crystal clear that God is against fruitcakeness and that fruitcakes will be spending eternity in Hell unless they repent of being a fruitcake and embrace Jesus as their Savior and trust entirely in Jesus alone for salvation.
Mike New York, I have read fruitcakes state on discussion forums that there are fruitcake animals. I immediately wrote to them stating that there are no fruitcake animals.

I don't know anything about the gospel? Are you kidding? I have stated on here repeatedly that I accept the biblical doctrine of salvation that salvation comes only through embracing Jesus as Savior and trusting entirely in Jesus alone for salvation. If I were to attend an Evangelical Church I would not fellowship with anybody(not even the minister) for the simple reason that I am shy and because fellowshipping with individuals in church is not required for salvation.

John Y if you are born again through Christ regenerating power alone, then you have to come out of the darkness & loyalty to Rome. In which is a mockery to Christ & His Word, as He is mocked by the Pope saying he is the Vicar of Christ amen. https://defendingcontending.com/2015/10/15/why-you-must-leave-the-roman-catholic-church/
No I am not ensnared into the heretical teachings in the Catholic Church as I have stated repeatedly on here that I reject and repudiate all the unscriptural Catholic doctrines and all the unscriptural parts of the Mass. If church attendance is not required for salvation then why do you state that Jesus wants individuals who have embraced Him as their Savior and trust entirely in Him alone for salvation to leave the Catholic Church or any other non Evangelical Church and unite with an Evangelical Church? Jesus will not look at the church that one attended in deciding who enters Heaven when everybody meets Him after they pass away. He will only look at who had embraced Him as Savior and trusted in Him alone for salvation.
Jim Lincoln wrote: Well considering, President Obama, hadn't had made those moral decisions before his second election, he certainly was a better choice than a Mormon.
Is this a joke that you thought that Obama would be a better president then the Mormon who was the Republican nominee in 2012? That is stupid. Because of that way of thinking this nation got Obama for 4 more years in 2012.
All of those Supreme Court picks of Trump's are conservative judges.

. it would be nice to see churches step up, how many pastors are there full time? and invite and encourage ways for families to work together to make it work for more people..... even then the aim will be the 501c3 churches....time to give homage to their creator.
Is this a joke about it is now discrimination to call a man a man if he wants to be called something else and that employers are to fire employees that discriminate including landlords? This is total insanity as well as being totally satanic.
Christopher, I can't believe that any practicing Catholic would state what your wife stated about "Oh, don't start talking about God again" and about not reading the Bible. I don't know any Catholic who would ever state "Oh, don't start talking about God again and would not want to read the Bible. The local Catholic Church I attend encourages Catholics to read the Bible. I was raised by my parents to read the Bible when I was growing up. And as a result I know the layout of the Bible so well that I can go to any book in the Bible within a matter of seconds.

Well someone has to throw the switch on the electric chair to execute the 1st degree murderer, don't they? Why should the one who throws the switch on the chair to electrocute the murderer feel any compunction for doing their duty? After all it was the state that ordered the murderer be executed in the first place. If I could throw the switch on the chair I after thinking it over would not state "fry rotten and insane murderer fry".
Observer wrote: First thing I see when I log in this morning is the daily troll news! So, troll, you believe that because capital punishment is scriptural that it is ok for you to "turn the juice up full blast and state fry rotten and insane murderer, fry"? What's the difference between you and the murderer? That you do it in the name of God and for justice, but the delight is the same? When you find yourself in hell next to him, then what will you say? Oh and BTW, spare me the "I received Jesus blah blah, blah".
You are in dire need of asking Jesus for help for your insane thinking that I am a troll. Ask Jesus for help now as you need it. If I embraced Jesus as Savior and trust entirely in Jesus alone for salvation then I am saved according to the teaching of the Bible about salvation. And thus I will go to Heaven.
Observer wrote: Yeah right. Your post of 5/16/16 9:13 AM sure doesn't read like that. Permit me to quote: ....I could easily throw the switch on the chair. I would turn the juice up full blast and state fry rotten and insane murderer fry. That is pretty heartless and quite frankly callous.
If I state that I am not gleeful at the death of the wicked then that is exactly what I mean. Since when is it heartless and callous to want 1st degree murderers to be executed?
GSMontana, You are in dire need of asking Jesus for help for your insane thinking that I am a troll.
As important as going to church is it is not a requirement for salvation. But Jim Lincoln and a lot of others on here state that unless a Catholic who has embraced Jesus as their Savior and trusts entirely in Jesus alone for salvation does not leave the Catholic Church and unite with an Evangelical Church that they are not really saved, which is totally against what the Bible states about salvation. The Bible states nothing about church attendance in any church including an Evangelical Church as being required for salvation.
Christopher000 wrote: "Fry, rotten and insane murderer, fry". Hmmm. Christ takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but you seem gleeful at the thought of being able to flip a switch, sending them to eternal condemnation., John.
I am not gleeful at the death of the wicked. Most of the time those murderers on death row are given the opportunity to repent when the prison chaplain meets them before the execution.
GSMontana wrote: The only one using the words church attendance and salvation in the same sentence is you John. Its the fact that you would rather fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness than with likeminded believers that causes people to question you.
I do not fellowship with anybody at the local Catholic Church I attend. Even if I were to attend an Evangelical Church I would not fellowship with anybody, meaning I would not engage in verbal communication with anybody, not even the minister.
Christopher, Well since I do not fellowship with anybody at the local Catholic Church I attend and do not participate in the unscriptural parts of the Mass then I am not yoked with the unfruitful works of darkness.
