Catholic cardinal criticises gay marriages plan
The government's plans for gay marriage have been criticised by the most senior Roman Catholic cleric in Britain.

Cardinal Keith O'Brien, the leader of the Catholic Church in Scotland, said the plans were a "grotesque subversion of a universally accepted human right".

Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, Cardinal O'Brien said: "Since all the legal rights of marriage are already available to homosexual couples, it is clear that this proposal is not about rights, but rather is an attempt to redefine marriage for the whole of society at the behest of a small minority of activists.

"Same-sex marriage would eliminate entirely in law the basic idea of a mother and a father for every child. It would create a society which deliberately chooses to deprive a child of either a mother or a father." ...

This is why the battle for the Bible and the reformation cry sola scriptorium is so important. We divide into camps of Christian philosophy and argue from there. But none can argue the list of scriptures I listed it is so plain, even in the king's English. The light shines in the darkness and the darkness comprehended it not. John chap 1

Fide Infidels, ah, if Catholics are so literate, then why don't they understand? Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No.

Of course John Calvin is a greater theologian than any Catholic one, however here is a --short-- article about church attendance not on a Reformed Church site, but a Southern Baptist one (for all I know the author may be Arminian?) "Do I Need to Go to Church?"

It is fascinating to observe that the Roman Catholics cannot read or perceive truth, (or accurate theology) whether in Scripture, in the writings of theologians or in posts. It is as if truth is completely elusive to them.

But this of course is the difference made by true faith, the gift of God and the work of the Holy Spirit; - AND human intellectual assent to a religious set of notions.

Thus do we see the Roman Catholic worships dumb idols and follow a works based religion. These unBiblical practices are the emergence of pagan ignorance under the domain of iniquity in mortals.

The home-made religion of the Roman Catholics with a misguided smidgeon of Bible bits appears to satisfy the unlearned reprobate to the extent that he considers himself religious, and even saved.

Satan and sin have hoodwinked and deluded the Roman Catholics.

John for Jesus wrote:
1. So you believe that our physical bodies are becoming more righteous? 2. If that can be done then why the ressurection? 3. Also, what about our spirit, is it becoming sanctified also? 4. If we die before the ressurection don't we go to heaven in our spiritual bodies because it is righteous?
Unusual questions John.

Well I'll have a go at 'em, anyway.

1. The physical body obeys the dictates of the mind, so it can't be righteous of itself.
2. The resurrection is necessary because we are going to die.
3. Our spirit is surely pure. It is with the heart that we sin.
4. The only means of our entry into heaven, whether before resurrection or after, is the Lord Jesus Christ. Our clothing is his rightousness; and when he died for our sins, he was clothed with our sins. Therefore, when we are pardoned, our sin is washed away, and we have the imputed righteousness of Christ, making us fit for the presence of God.

I'm sorry I can't do better than that.

They're always trying to sneak works in through the back door when you're not looking. Seen it every time except for this one Reformation titan:

Three Free Sins: God's Not Mad at You
-Steve Brown, Reformed Seminary Emeritus professor.

He's literally giving you all "free sins," in accord with this famous constant teaching he's shared with Reformed Seminary students and on his broadcast for decades:

"God's not mad at you!"

This is one to also follow on his March 14th Steve Brown Etc. broadcast.

He's taken Tetzel's little jingle, turned it on its head and parlayed his anti-philosophy into this soon-to-be blockbuster book.

Brown's the real Reformation deal.

Finally.

John, the old confessions often had negatives in them to counter old heresies; the infusion of righteousness as our justification was one such heresy.
It is crucial to separate justification (being accounted perfect before God) and sanctification (being made actually holy in due course), or you will end up with works salvation.
"Those who are united to Christ, effectually called, and regenerated, having had a new heart and a new spirit created in them through the virtue of Christ's death and resurrection, are then further sanctified in a very real and personal way. Because of the virtue of Christ's death and resurrection, and by His Word and Spirit dwelling in them, the dominion of the whole body of sin is destroyed. The different lusts of the body of sin are increasingly weakened and mortified, and Christ's people are increasingly quickened and strengthened in all saving graces, to practise all true holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord."
So you believe that our physical bodies are becoming more righteous? If that can be done then why the ressurection? Also, what about our spirit, is it becoming sanctified also? If we die before the ressurection don't we go to heaven in our spiritual bodies because it is righteous?

Gal 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

I was almost speechless reading these and then remembered I am never speechless. The 11 requirements of salvation listed were all what must I do to be saved. This list if placed as a result of salvation by grace through faith might be acceptable.mbut in order to have eternal life goes against so many scriptures I hardly no where to begin, maybe Romans, Galatians, Ephesians, Hebrews. I don't know take your pick. " to the one who works the reward is not reckoned of grace but of debt, but the one who workers not, but believeth on him that justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." Rom 4:5

God replaces your stony heart with one of flesh. He operates on your stiff neck and makes it pliable. Christ reprograms your mind with a new holy OS. In short, He remodels you through and through. There's no "alien righteousness" virus haphazardly running in the background. These are actual complete changes in your spiritual constitution just like Saul had on the way to Damascus. In automotive terms: you've had a complete overhaul.

If an on-going miraculous infusion isn't happening in you, then why did Jesus speak so much about this metamorphosis? This total transformation. Aren't you are a new creature bought with a price?

If this isn't a massive infusion of grace, what could it be?

If you study and hearken to the ministry of Dr Peter Masters, you will be somewhat enlightened humanly, and may even be enlightened spiritually, if God so wills it. You are hanging by a thread, and rather than seek to impress God by your works, you would do well to fear him who, after he has taken your life, has power to cast you into hell, and that forever.

Auburn Avenue’s/ Federal Vision doctrine of justification:

“ “Jesus’ sinless life is only an example of faithfulness for His people to follow.

Christians are justified by faith and faithfulness (i.e. perseverance in personal obedience).

Faith and obedience are necessary to obtain final justification. Faith is introspective. It is divided between Christ and the believer’s faithfulness. Obedience is a co-instrument of justification

Good works or covenantal faithfulness has an important role to play in a believer’s final justification.

Justification refers only to the pardon of sins and not the imputation of Jesus’ active [or preceptive] obedience. Pardon is supplemented by covenant faithfulness which results in final justification.

Sanctification if faithfully continued leads to final justification. The process which leads to justification is synergistic.

The covenant of grace includes conditions. One condition is faithful obedience or good works. The personal righteousness, obedience or good works of believers has salvific “value” (i.e. merit) before God.”

Gospel Confusion wrote:
Faith + Confession = Justification.
Faith + Repentance+Justification
Regardless of what you try to read the truth is not in you.
Clearly you do not understand justification.

"The order of justification which Scripture sets before us is this: first, God of his mere gratuitous goodness is pleased to embrace the sinner, in whom he sees nothing that can move him to mercy but wretchedness, because he sees him altogether naked and destitute of good works. He, therefore, seeks the cause of kindness in himself, that thus he may affect the sinner by a sense of his goodness, and induce him, in distrust of his own works, to cast himself entirely upon his mercy for salvation. This is the meaning of faith by which the sinner comes into the possession of salvation, when, according to the doctrine of the Gospel, he perceives that he is reconciled by God; when, by the intercession of Christ, he obtains the pardon of his sins, and is justified; and, though renewed by the Spirit of God, considers that, instead of leaning on his own works, he must look solely to the righteousness which is treasured up for him in Christ."
(John Calvin)
