53% Think Neither Political Party Represents the American People

Voters continue to believe Democrats have more of a plan for the future than Republicans do, but most again say neither party represents the public.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 53% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is fair to say that neither party in Congress is the party of the American people. That’s up six points from 47% last October and matches the previous high found in June 2012 during the last national election cycle. Just 28% disagree, while 19% are not sure.

Hi John, infant baptism, according to the church of Rome isn't a simple dedication to Christ. To them, it is an instrument of salvation and also clears all original sin. Many Roman Catholics, when pressed, will claim baptism and salvation as synonymous. They are saved because they were baptized as infants. One of the scriptures the chirch uses is Acts 2:39 where Peter says: "For the promise is to you and to your children and to all that are far off, every one whom the Lord our God calls to him." To me, this simply means that it is made available to the now children when they become adults and turn their lives over to Christ.

Dear "Pretty much sums it up"

You may be missing badly the point here.

While we(some of us) are thoroughly grieved by JohnY's continued insistance he is saved and refusal to leave the RCC. And there is a need to answer the nonsense that would run down genuine Biblical faith in Jesus Christ.

We still desire and pray for him to make his calling and election sure, or in other words to know what it means to be genuinely repentant and born again of the Holy Spirit.

We cross the line and get ourselves in the wrong, sin if you will, when we put words in his mouth by cutting and pasting together things he as openly said into something he has not.

We need to fear God here. In our flesh apart from the grace of God, if we were in the same circumstances JohnY is in would we have done any better? or perhaps worse? Take a moment and consider just how powerful a devil, or delusion, or love for sin, has to be in a man's mind to hold him in such a bondage of religous false belief. And yet how without excuse he will be in the day of judgment to continue to refuse the faith he could have had coming from the Bible and the work the Holy Spirit is powerfully capable of to save sinners.

And weep for him and us

Yes, that does "Pretty much sums it up,"
American Tract Dictionary 1859 wrote:
HYPOCRITE:

One who, like a stage-player, feigns to be what he is not. The epithet is generally applied to those who assume the appearance of virtue or piety, without possessing the reality. Our Savior accused the Pharisees of hypocrisy, Lu 12:1.

If the bread and the cup of wine are not really the way the Catholic Church teaches then they are the way the Lutheran Church teaches.
from the catholic website catholic.com:

"Who Can Receive Communion?"

"The Church sets out specific guidelines regarding how we should prepare ourselves to receive the Lord’s body and blood in Communion. To receive Communion worthily, you must be in a state of grace, have made a good confession since your last mortal sin, believe in transubstantiation, observe the Eucharistic fast, and, finally, not be under an ecclesiastical censure such as excommunication."

Which censure you would be under if you didn't bear them false witness by your actions and deceptions. You should seriously consider being honest with them. The Commandment to not bear false witness doesn't make an exception for making false witness to a priest. Deeds can lie as well as words.

Thanks for answering, I wasnt sure if they did or not. Still, there is no need to pretend, just leave the herectical Church like scripture commands and find a biblical church. Youll be much better of spiritually if you do.
2 Corinthians 6:14-17 "Be ye not unequally yoked with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? What communion hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

Something is really messed up, if to go to the church/mass one loves, (one) you have to pretend things aren't like they really are and (two) dare not tell the truth of what you really believe lest they kick you out big time as one their religion would excommunicate.

Sounds really REALLY messed up.
Why such a genuis cannot even get us 'ignorant baptist types' to turn a blind eye to give a pass so he can just go on pretending in sheep's clothing.

Michael,
I imagine he would be excommunicated on the spot. I asked that question, because if they do ask that, then John would have to lie in order to partake of it, and lying is a sin. Not only that, but we are to live out our faith and what we believe. Ill also point out there have courageous men and women who died rather than lie, and tell some inquisitor they believed the eucharist was really the body and blood of Christ. They didnt pretend anything, they died for what the believed.
Matthew 5:14-16 "Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
I don't lie as the distributors of the bread and the cup of wine never inquire of anybody who comes forward to receive the bread and the cup of wine if they believe the Catholic doctrine of Holy Communion. If the bread and the cup of wine are not really the way the Catholic Church teaches then they are the way the Lutheran Church teaches.

I usually receive the bread and the cup of wine from the Eucharistic Minister and the Eucharistic Minister doesn't inquire if one believes in the Catholic doctrine of Holy Communion. I sometimes have received the bread and the cup of wine from a priest when I have attended Mass in the past at other Catholic Churches and the priest never inquired if I believe in the Catholic doctrine of Holy Communion.

Wow! What a question.
Can you begin to imagine how a priest might react (It might not be pretty if he is hard core Catholic) if some religious genuis dared to tell him that he was only pretending it was the literal body and blood, not the 'real presence' the RCC teaches Catholics that it is (I know not they are falsely teaching them but still that's what they teach)

Wow! I sure don't measure up as a religious genuis after all, because the faith God Himself gives those who believe in His word has nothing to do with pretending, but so much with obeying.

But hey! I may not be anywhere the level of religous genuis of some but if that is the kind of thing they're pretending, like baby baptism is just baby dedication, get real, to a genuine RC according to their own Catechism is a RC sacrament big time, I think it would be far better to pass and part company with them. RC and Pretend Religous Genuises both.

Because I denounced my baby baptism as a RC as utterly wrong and worthless and when/after I was saved followed the Lord in Believer's Baptism.
And further, I had no idea of how spiritually intelligent I really was, God led me to renounce the sacraments of the RCC, especially the eucharist, so much so I will never again participate in the RC Mass, nor take their blasphemous idolatrous 'communion cookie.'
And I thank God, He wonderfully commands me, and other saved Catholics, meaning those saved OUT OF a Catholic upbring, to come out of her and be separate, holy unto Him.
But alas, I am not anywhere near the level of spiritual genuis of some.
I don't consider Infant Baptism to be wrong as I consider it to be just a dedication of infants to Jesus. When I receive the bread and the cup of wine I pretend it is like the Lutheran Church teaches about Holy Communion. Even if a Catholic who trusts in Jesus alone for salvation doesn't leave the Catholic Church they will still enter Heaven upon their demise as they fulfilled the only requirement the Bible gives for salvation which is to trust in Jesus alone for salvation.

If I don't adhere to the unscriptural Catholic doctrines and I don't participate in the unscriptural parts to the Mass but rather adhere only to the scriptural Catholic doctrines and only participate in the scriptural parts to the Mass then I have not lined myself up with the unscriptural aspect of the Catholic church but rather have lined myself up with the scriptural aspect of the Catholic Church.

IMHO the question you ask...relates to are we treating the Lord Jesus Christ more as a thing, or as a living person, the most important Person to us in all the universe and all of eternity.

It might be easy to say one loves their car. After all it is a good car, it starts, gets good gas mileage, has good power, radio and air conditioning. But it is not alive you cannot have relationship with your car, even though you can do anything you want with it, after all it is just a thing, even if you can drive it home after work.

So why would anyone mistreat and abuse Jesus Christ as if He is only a car to heaven? When He is The Good Shepherd who will indeed lead His own, purchased with His shed blood, who hear His voice and follow Him, into the Manifest Presence of His Holy Father and in that day stomp on and crush the snakes and utterly kill and damn in hell forever the ravenous wolves no matter how much they tried to disquiese themselves in sheep's clothing, and no matter how much they tried to imitate the sweet voices of the sheep in saying, 'Lord, Lord'

John Y., no, it takes more that will not make you a Christian or acceptable to God. You have to repent and Come Out Of The Catholic Church.

Luke 13:1 Now on the same occasion there were some present who reported to Him about the Galileans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.
2 And He answered and said to them, "Do you suppose that these Galileans were greater sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered this fate?
3 "I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.
4 "Or do you suppose that those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, were worse culprits than all the men who live in Jerusalem?
5 "I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish."---NASB.

Still have read, A Close Look at Invitations and Altar Calls -- Carey Hardy have you, John Y.? Tell us when you stopped going to the Romish Church, and then you'll be taking you're very first step to being a Christian. Show us your faith by that tiny work.
