No that Baptist Church I attend on Sunday mornings isn't worth a pinch of salt nor is it rotten at the core as Pastor Steve preaches the biblical doctrine of salvation in his sermons every Sunday. Pastor Steve probably doesn't want to contact you because he probably did not receive your message. Pastor Steve is not a wolf and a liar either. Pastor Steve is not cognizant of the fact that I attend the Catholic Church on Saturdays because I did not inform him of that fact as it is none of his business. And the Mass is not devil worship. The only devil worship is done in the Church of Satan founded by Anton Levay. Listen to some of Pastor Steve's sermons on www.rolchastings.org and you will find out that he does indeed preach the biblical doctrine of salvation.

The numbers are troubling, for sure, whether Catholic, Evangelical, or whoever because not one single person who claims Christianity, and claims to believe that the bible is God's complete and inspired Word should be falling victim to societal pressures or daring to support that which God clearly condemns.
Those Republicans who support fruitcake marriage should really become Democrats because the Republican Party should only be for conservatives with no liberals in it. And the 67 percent of Catholics who support fruitcake marriage are liberals and should be excommunicated from the Catholic Church.
Jim L., I have a Nephew and Niece In-Law who reside in Tulare, California and they used to attend and belong to a Pentecostal Church but they switched to attending and belonging to a Baptist Church named Tulare First Baptist Church of Tulare, California.
Frank wrote: JohnY, Well, the catholic church you attend does in fact pray to Mary and the saints. They believe the pope is the vicar of Christ on this earth. They believe if they die with a mortal sin on their souls, they go to hell. They believe in a works based salvation. And of course I could go on and on and on. Canon 14: "If any one saith, that man is truly absolved from his sins and justified, because that he assuredly believed himself absolved and justified; or, that no one is truly justified but he who believes himself justified; and that, by this faith alone, absolution and justification are effected; let him be anathema." CANON 12: "If any one shall say that justifying faith is nothing else than confidence in the divine mercy pardoning sins for Christ's sake, or that it is that confidence alone by which we are justified ... let him be accursed" Like I have said, if you attend the RCC or defend them, then you are simply a disillusioned troll. The "or" is significant here. Why would a born again believer attend such a church? Anyway, this will be my last post to you on this issue. You fool no one.

I have an Independent Baptist guy friend who was saved during an Altar Call at his Independent Baptist Church when he was 12 years old when he gave his life to Christ by accepting Jesus as his Savior and Lord and placed his trust entirely in Him alone for salvation(which is what I did some 20 years ago), which is the biblical doctrine of salvation as is the doctrine of salvation that is preached in all Baptist Churches. Look up the website of that Baptist Church(rolchastings.org) I attend on Sunday mornings and you will find out that Pastor Steve preaches the biblical doctrine of salvation. Listen to some of his sermons to find out for yourself that he preaches the biblical doctrine of salvation. I
Frank, If I gave my life to Christ some 20 years ago and I trust entirely in Jesus alone for salvation then I am saved and a son of the most high. I also attend a small Baptist Church on Sunday morning. If I was not saved I would not have come under the guidance of God to start attending that small Baptist Church last September. When I met with Pastor Steve in April to arrange the Baptism I was asked if I had accepted Jesus as my Savior and Lord. And when I responded in the affirmative then Pastor Steve accepted I was saved and a proper candidate for Baptism. I was Baptized via immersion(as a public profession of faith that I gave my life to Christ) on 21 May after worship at that Baptist Church I attend on Sunday mornings.
Christopher000 wrote: Hi John, hope you had a good weekend. Question: Does the church obey the biblical and historical Jesus they believe in? Just as faith without works is no faith at all, belief without obedience is just simple belief, nothing more and meaningless. Satan believes and disobeys, and the demons believe, yet disobey, so is simple belief a means to anything spiritual and eternal?
I had a good weekend. I attended Mass at the local Catholic parish on Saturday and then I attended the local Baptist Church yesterday morning. Pastor Steve was gone on vacation so we had a substitute Pastor who is on the membership roll of that Baptist Church. The Catholic Church does not entirely obey the biblical and historical Jesus as is evident by the fact that there are some unscriptural Catholic doctrines and some unscriptural parts of the Mass. The fact that Catholics believe in and worship the biblical and historical Jesus as God does not mean they are saved. The only way a Catholic can become saved is if they accept Jesus as their Savior and Lord.
ladybug, You are in dire need of psychological help from Jesus to state that I am not really saved. If I gave my life to Christ then I am saved.
Dave wrote: John yurich, why do you then ignore god, not pastor Steve, but god. You're pastor and god have told you that Catholicism is false worship, that's idolatry John and you have enough between the ears to know it. God says don't eat with them, but you worship with them.
I may attend Mass with Catholics but I don't worship with them as I worship Jesus in my own way in the Catholic Church by only participating in the scriptural parts of the Mass. But on Sunday mornings at that Baptist Church I worship with the congregation as they worship Jesus.
I say the Catholic Grace Prayer before meals: "Bless us O Lord and these thy gifts which we are about to receive from thy bounty through Christ our Lord. Amen.". That is the biblical and historical Jesus that Catholics believe in and worship and not a false jesus.
