God describes the Roman Catholics as "deaf" "dumb" and "blind" ....
"Psalm 115:4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands. 5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not: 6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not: 7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat. 8 They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them."
v4 RC idols "work of men's hands" v5 Dumb and blind v6 Deaf and cannot use their senses. v7 Restricted even in normal movement v8 Quote; "They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them."
John UK wrote: I still maintain that justification is by faith alone, but Bible justification (as Paul says) is always accompanied by a desire to keep the law (the ten commandments)
Only the Ten Commandments?
Does Jesus ONLY refer to the Decalogue here? Mat 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Which bits of Scripture can we delete? Luk 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
Is Paul wrong about this? 2Tim 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
"Thus says the Lord" occurs over 400 times in the Old Testament .....

Do not be afraid of what Scripture declares for it is the Word of God.
But the Remnant will be saved. However judging by their evil abhorent and iniquitous witness this does not include the deceiving Church of England.
May God rebuke them and remove this satanic Liberal influence from the gullible of England.
God's righteous justice is always consistent. Gen 19:24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; 25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
John The Bible is called the sword of the Spirit. Ever hear that line? Now the sword to be used against evil in the world is the Holy Word of God. The Bible.
This is a spiritual battle and the sword to be used in that kind of warfare - is the Bible.
Our battle is not with flesh and blood - Don't be a man-pleaser, using flattery like the Liberals do in the world.
The Word of God can take care of itself. We don't need to mollify it or even protect it against the reprobates ideologies!! Or apologise to society for its witness against the reprobate.
No John. The Word of God is precisely that - God's holy Word, law, doctrine and truth in this fallen existence.
As I remarked below Don't be ashamed of the Word of God.
Now. Don't you know what reprobates are? Can't you distinguish these? ... 2Cor 13:6 But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates.
Can't you distinguish "works" of the reprobate (abominable/disobedient) compare with that which is of the true Christian? Titus 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
John UK wrote: It is highly likely, but not necessarily. You ought to be careful whom you call reprobate
The fact that the Lord saves the Elect does not prevent us from witnessing to a fallen world that sin and sinners ie reprobates go to hell. Don't be afraid to tell people what the Bible says.
Romans 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
2 Timothy 3:8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
Titus 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
2 John 9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
Catholics are religious atheists, which the Word of God when read by one of God's Elect, reveals them to be idolatrous reprobates whom God has not provided with the ability to receive truth.
Atheists are in the same family and on the same path in life, since they too are reprobates whom God has not provided with the ability to receive truth.
As God Himself records; Psalm 53:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.
Who are we to argue with God's description!
BTW Mike this article refers to the sodomites and what they are being allowed to do in a depraved world. But they too are reprobates who cannot receive the truth. I guess that puts you in their family also.
"The âLove has no genderâ poster is one of five different designs, including one that bears the words: âWeâre here, weâre queer, weâre in your schoolâ."
Now that the evil satanic Liberals have poisoned Canada, its politicians and bureaucrats we have a no holds barred situation. Anything goes, and who cares about morals anymore. Wonder whats next? V23 Beastiality???
Lev 18:21 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD. 22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. 23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. 24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: 25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
Pastor Mike wrote: You people are perfect examples of why I thank God everyday that I'm an atheist.
pester Mike GOD whom you cannot believe in, because HE has not given you faith states of atheists. Psalm 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. 2 The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. 3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.

Mammon is working very hard these days to shackle and enslave the gullible.
Gambling is both idolatrous and covetous.
Luke 16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
1Tim 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; 18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;
Communion wrote: When the Founding Fathers developed the two-party system (vis a vis, the Electoral College), it's always been predictable that eventually the consevative Evangelical and Catholic would have to make love, not war. That time's arrived.
The true church cannot have any communion whatsoever with those who worship graven images.
2Cor 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people"
Isa 44:9 They that make a graven image are all of them vanity; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they are their own witnesses; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed. 10 Who hath formed a god, or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing? 18 They have not known nor understood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand.
"the companyâs head of diversity, made the official announcement during an LGBT professional summit in London"
Yet another evil organisation which so hates those who carry out homosexual acts that they want to send them to hell and damnation. An eternity of pain and suffering. These people at Google must be really satanic, malignant and malevolent.
God states; Lev 20:13 "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them"
messenger wrote: you people are silly. women are even better pastors than men, they have natural gifts and are easier to talk to
Apparently GOD never thought so!!
But then you are not interested in what GOD thinks are you, Satan.
GOD states: "1Tim 2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression."
