John Y, if you are absolutely certain that the Catholic crime syndicate is incorrect on the doctrines of salvation, why do you insist on hanging around with a gaggle of lying heretics? Are you just a stubborn, stiffnecked rebel, or are you a couple of slices short of a loaf?
Stinkin' Linkin, hearken: "And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord" (Acts 13:10)
Angela, I'm sure you've noticed by now that Jim has no problem with wicked people being politically active. It's only Christians he wants to see neutralized. Ephesians 2:1 and 2:5 as well as Colossians 2:13 all say that people who are not saved are dead in their sins, so I don't agree that it is foolish to tell them so. Friday night, Lord willing, I will preach to a group of men at an addictions recovery center, and I will tell them unequivocally that if they are not saved, they are going to hell. That isn't foolish; it's scriptural.
The Catholic doctrine of salvation is satanic, John, as is the entire hornswoggling system of Roman Catholicism, and yet you cling to it like a cocklebur on a collie. You have absolutely no spiritual perception and in all likelihood you are lost in spite of your affiliation with a Baptist church. Unlike the scripture-searching Bereans who wanted to know the truth, all you do is waste hours of your time and the time of others defending yourself instead of investigating the validity or invalidity of any statement made about you. I urge you to seek the services of the Great Physician, John. You are definitely blind in the mind.
