GG: The fact that you always resort to name calling like a 5 year old is a testimony of your true godless character. That is also why you don't read the bible. You have not been born-again. Please repent and beleive on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved.
Dwayne: Why are you folks so proud to tell everyone that you are under the bondage of the law? Why don't you just pretend your jesus never came, and put on your sackloth and ashes. You are already doing the sacrifices with your false jesus.
Lance: How would you like it if every time your children wanted somthing from you they came to your wife and asked her to ask you? I would feel pretty rejected. Don't you believe that the Bible tells us everything that God wants us to know about Jesus? Do you know mary any better? Why communicate with a human whaen you can communicate with the God the Father, Son or Holy Spirit? The Bible tells us much about Jesus Christ, and only a few things about the biblical mary. It is indeed rude and blasphemous to speak to another when the whole bible was written to declare Jesus.
Jesus said it here...
Luke 24:44 And he [Jesus] said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. [essentially that is the whole Old Testament]
And The Bible Here
Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Your church has been ignoring these things for centuries, I suppose you will too.
GG: Please tell Lance that his hail marys are blasphemous. I would tell him myself but I am trying to prove a point that it is very rude to speak about another when they are in you very presence. This is what he and you do to your jesus when you pray to mary and ask her to intercede for you. I'm so glad that my very own prayers go right to the heart of my Omniscient Christ. no middleman needed.
Lance: The only sin I can commit that will condemn me is unbelief. And I am protected from that by my election. Christ died for all my sins. I don't need to atone for myself. Christ is sufficient for my salvation and needs no help from a mere broken vessel of clay. Too bad you chose an impotent saviour. The God of heaven chose me. Better get back to your rosary. Maybe wooden beads can save you.
Not Elect: I think you are wrong to assume anything about haw a devout RC thinks. Death must be on his mind constantly, because if he commits a mortal sin and does not confess it before he dies, he is damned to hell. (Of course he is already damned to hell anyway for not trusting Christ alone by faith alone but he doesn't believe that). Nonetheless, that is his mindset. He can never have the assurance of a true believer. His religion is works based, and therefore salvation is in his own hands. Catholicism is the religion of bondage. He needs to trust Christ alone, and lay off the rosary beads...
Lance: Too bad, "you keep your death constantly in mind." True Christians keep Christ's death constantly in mind. Because he died for their sins, they don't have too. How nice it is to be saved!!! Please Repent and believe.
