Catholic, Protestant Churches Sign Historic Baptism Agreement
Leaders representing the Roman Catholic Church and some American Protestant denominations have signed an agreement in Texas to recognize each other's baptisms.

After about six years of dialogue, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Reformed Church in America, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the Christian Reformed Church in North America, and the United Church of Christ signed a document recognizing each other's liturgical rites of baptism.

The five denominations signed the "Common Agreement on Mutual Recognition of Baptism," affirming the baptism agreement on Tuesday evening at a prayer service held at St. Mary's Cathedral in Austin. ...

Brother John UK.

Regardless of what these fellows say, they are at a minimum defending a false gospel instead of exposing it. Your comments are very good! I just wish I had your patience.

15] He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both [are] abomination to the LORD. (Pro 17:15 KJV)

[44] Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (Jhn 8:44 KJV)

[6] I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: [7] Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. [8] But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. [9] As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. (Gal 1:6-9 KJV)

Those newly saved and young/immature in their walk with the Lord indeed have all sorts of learning and growing to do.

That said, this young man's response to a sermon by Paris Reidhead is SIGNFICANTLY better than what a lot of Modern Baptists can say of their devotion to Christ.

Grace, Mercy and Blessings

Spot on Steve!

The antichrist church has no notion of what it means to be a Christian, vainly thinking that sprinkled water, attendance upon magic shows, confessing to a man called Father Blah Blah, praying to Mary etc. brings them salvation. So why should anyone listen to anything they say?

Maybe JFJ should not listen to anything they say either. Ah, but he just loves those antichrist devils. Can you not assist him out of the pit he's fallen into. I take it you believe it is right to help people who are deceived?

I read you attend a Baptist Church. It kind of breaks my heart to think you would be in a Mega Church and might never hear anything there like this brief clip:

Come and He Will Set You Free

by Paris Reidhead who is famous for his message: Ten Shekels and a Shirt downloaded some 53,340 times here on SermonAudio.

Or find fellowship with Baptists who ought to be able to genuinely say things like this brief clip on YouTube:

AND being Baptist ought to know the difference between being a born again child of God and a Roman Catholic such as Richard Bennett makes clear in his salvtion testimony here on SermonAudio:
From Catholicism to Christ

AND NOT Just play church.

John, it seems to me that you do not even understand what a Christian is. You imagine a corrupt organisation can teach false beliefs and produce believers?

Maybe you would care to produce your evidence that the RCC has at any point in its existence steered sinners to a justifying righteousness through faith alone in Christ alone by God's grace alone. Without this, you may be assured that it has always preached a salvation by works, which salvation does not exist.

Now if you don't want to be labelled a troll, stop acting like one. You have been given access to a good article on church history which, if you will take the time to read it, will surely put you straight on all the lies you have been fed by various Catholic sources.

I personally will have NO TRUCK with the RCC, who regard me anathema for my beliefs. If you are a Christian, they also regard you as damned to hell. And there is no gainsaying THAT!

A number of points:
1. Your moniker is provocative to say the least. Are you trying to say that you ONLY are for Jesus and everyone else posting here is not? If this is not the case, then it would be wise to change the moniker
3. The corruption of the churches from their primitive purity was gradual and so your quest for a specific date is a little simplistic, although there are some key events that accelerated the decline e.g. during the time of Constantine.
4. To insist as you wrongly do that there was one cohesive organised church from its inception known as the "Catholic" church is nonsense and anyone with even a little knowledge of church history would not make that mistake.

1. I don't see anything wrong with this name. It doesn't mean that you are not for Jesus. It's a way to declare that I want to live for Him.
2. Agreed
3. So are you saying it may have been Christian before you believe it became corrupted?
4. I believe historically it was the most prominent and biggest of church organizations for 1500 years. It was the largest of churches in Europe. I don't think it's crazy to believe Christians joined that church because they believed it was Christian. I've only read Esibius and some of The Ante Nicene Fathers.

Why, because they have and are confusing the most people and they have killed 10s of thousands of true believers.

Heh Michael; nice hearing from you. I think it is safe to say that you and I agree on these issues. I have often said there is absolutely nothing in RC that is doctrinally sound. When they use the same terms we use; they don't mean the same thing. They are the best cult at spinning things so most don't recognize what they are doing.

I also tend to agree with your thoughts about denominations and schools of theology (creeds). Although I don't object to others identifying themselves that way; I never do and that includes saying I am of the reformed movement. The only thing I might do is say that I am a fundamentalist; but I am even reluctant to do that since I don't agree with all aspects of fundamentalism as normally put forth. I guess what I am saying is I don't like to be labeled? I simply prefer to say I am a born again believer that has been saved by the grace of God for reasons that are known only to Him.

Good comments; thanks.

I've encountered RC apologists as well and one of the things they do is point to a RC version of 'church history' to make the RCC seem credible.

But when all is said and done the RCC although it uses Biblical terms, it doesn't mean the same thing the context of Scripture means AND when anyone honestly examimes the god and the jesus of the RCC it is not the same as the Revelation that God gives of Himself and of Christ in Scripture AND the RC Mary is likewise quite different than the Mary of Scripture.

I have to think I am not telling you anything you don't already know, I am just mentioning it now as the issue of Truth goes far deeper and is far more important than the opinions men have about whatever denomination or school of theology they can in good conscience identify with.

Being convinced by Scripture and some understanding of the staggering sovereignty of God I hold to the belief that God has always had His remnant something Catholics and some Reformed have a hard time admitting because for Catholics it is like admitting they are wrong and for the Reformed that they have been wrong to bring along RC errors and teachings like infant baptism.

One of the best books to read is E H Broadbent's "The Pilgrim Church". This is a thrilling read for anyone not familiar with church history. He does not go into great depth but makes a broad sweep.

I don't know that those statements were wrong. I only know I found new information that might better inform me. I don't remember you telling me when the first Catholic Church began or if the Catholic Church never held to Christian views then why we're there so many Christians that reformed from it. We could all probably know our church history better, but that doesn't mean we cannot talk about it. Thanks for the link to "The Pilgrim Church".

Yes, thanks for the link; I will check it out also. John for Jesus' argument reminds me of the arguments presented by Catholic apologists, whom I have spent lots of time arguing with. If he is correct, then he would be saying that the RCC killed 10s of thousands of their own since no other church existed.

I also think John for Jesus is a Catholic troll that can't admit it because that is what trolls do.
