You Know Jew From Chicago wrote: Many True Holy Bible Christians Have Not Only...
Tony(?) I hardly think the "Jesuits" you speak would have put Walter Martin on somekind of safe Protestant list
To the best of my memory Walter Martin continued to speak against the RCC as an idolatrous, blasphemous, false church, with a false gospel up to his death
It may be splitting hairs for some to call the RCC a completely false church (harlot) which is facing the wrath of God and not call them a "cult" because they do acknowledge, at least in pretty much empty words, Scripture, the Trinity, the virgin birth of the Son of God, His sinlessness, the crucifixion, the resurrection AND OF COURSE twist and distort them, suppress and depart from the Truth of Christ for Mariolotry, priestcraft, and a whole lot more
If Walter Martin didn't emphasize the RCC being the world's largest false religion/cult to your approval, who are you to judge the servant of another? I suppose it is possible if someone thorougly investigated you, and redacted your name, places, dates, etc in a factual report all about you, you could probably find plenty to find fault with
BTW if anybody is on the "Jesuits" safe list of being soft or the RCC won't it be TBN?

Many True Holy Bible Christians Have Not Only "Go[ne] To Jail Over JESUS' Name"; But, Many True Holy Bible Christians Have Lost Their Lives Over JESUS' Name !
The Most Solemn &-Or Sober Question Any True Holy Bible Christian Can Ask Himself/Herself Is Not Only "Would I Go To Jail Over JESUS' Name ?"; But, "Would I Go To Physical Death Over JESUS' Name ?"--
And Not Only Truthfully & Honestly Answer The Question; But, If The Question Is Answered In The Affirmative: To Actually Go Ahead & Do So !
Now, Regarding WALTER MARTIN. In His Older Publications-/-Works On Cults & False-Religions; MARTIN Names ROMAN-"CATHOLICISM" As One Of The World's MAJOR FALSE-"CHRISTIAN"-RELIGIONS &-OR "CULTS".
Albeit, In Later Publications & Works MARTIN LEAVES OUT & DELETES ROMAN-"CATHOLICISM" As Being One Of The World's Major False-Religions-/-Cults !
Causing MARTIN To Be Put On The Satanic~Vatican "JESUIT'S" List Of Safe Protestant Anti~Vatican Authors: According To The Testimony Of A Former Highranking "Jesuit" !
Thank you for your concern, "concerned". I, obviously, am not beyond correction and I do love God's Word when rightly applied. Knowledge without wisdom is dangerous. Perhaps it would help if you would carefully read what has preceded my posts and then also carefully read my responses. I have tried to clarify positions that I have taken or, at times, have given necessary observations. Either you will put the posts into context or it can be gathered that you are biased and that you hold to a double standard.
Sc...we as Christians all love truth. I applaud that you diligently seek it. However I have to tell you that your approach and your attitude toward some on the board comes across as self righteous and judgemental. Hope you will receive this as a gentle reminder "a soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger".
People believe what they want to, apparently. No one has produced any AUTHENTICATED writings which were not HEAVILY EDITED by another that were supposedly written by Washington. And no one has addressed the issue of his freemasonry background.If anyone is serious in finding out (which I seriously doubt based on the lame responses) they may listen to Ian Masterson on SA who deals with the subject as well. Obviously, not everyone who professes to be a Christian is. Some are better at presenting a facade than others as, at least. When people respond like those who are unsaved, consistently,it becomes a lot more evident as to whom they belong. And "no", I'm not all-knowing.If you were familiar with the Bible, you would know that there is only One who is. As a Christian, however, I do love truth and don't accept propaganda even if it is in the history books or advocated by a professing Christian who is also a catholic. Most Christians are aware that history books are commonly in error.

They may have meant well but a Mason and a Christian are antithetical. Perhaps they are only familiar with that which was heavily edited or unauthenticated. History writers have a way of manipulating events and people to paint them in a different light. Washington, undoubtedly, was used by God in his efforts in founding this nation but Washington was a deist. I've researched many articles and listened to a preacher on SA that compares Washington's faith to Lincoln's. btw the cherry tree thing was bogus too. For the most part, you will find that Washington was very intentionally unaffiliated with Christ. If you get a chance, check out freemasonry. You'll have a better grasp then and will see that no true Christian would also be aligned with the masons.

There are Christian historians who have stated that Washington was a Christian because he stated so in his writings.

All of washington's architecture, including the lincoln memorial and even the statue of liberty in n y is steeped in masonry. Mike Hoggard does an excellent job of dealing with this very pertinent information.
George Washington stated in his writings that he had embraced Jesus as his Savior and trusted in Him alone for salvation.
