Are you? No, you didn't just call Brother Satint John UK Wales on a bias regarding Ladybug, you called him, in my words here, "unteachable/uncorrectable"
Now I have no idea who you really are, impartial? can't prove it by me, not a fan of John I suppose, but as imperfect as my friend, my brother in Christ is across the Atlantic, I have personal experience with him that he is teachable/correctable and I did not appreciate you assault on his character. Do you want to begrudge him a friend, even an imperfect one such as myself?
Your not that multimoniker guy who is alway trying to convert people away from Scripture to a form of hyper-Calvinism and NOT to Christ are you?
I am sooooo soooorrrrry if pointing to an important verse "Buy the Truth and sell it not" Proverbs 23:23 offends you (NOT Really) but that is something every child of God needs in our faith and walk with our Savior (Yes, the unregenerate probably don't comprehend how important Truth is)
All this said, if you are genuinely born again, and willing to tell us who you really are, anything and all you might rightfully do, feel free to pursue a genuine Biblical reconciliation so that we might be a blessing to each other
Let's see if I can analyze your post. You object you don't have Carte blanche to post your (honestly) clever disinformation/distortion and promotion of your Pro-R Catholic ecumenism
You fain hurt feelings and pretend people to be genuine Christians are under attack when the truth is those hold their particular non-Biblical teachings will not be born again of the Spirit Christians unless they repent/renounce their false teaching and come to salvation on God's terms of repentance and faith.
You would be the one sowing strife, not those contending for Biblical faith
Since you are claim and post with knowledge of both the Bible and R Catholicism you have no valid excuse to call Pope worshippers and Mariolaters anything but unsaved lost blasphemous spiritually adulterous non-Christians who who desperately need the truth you are not telling them.
To me it is unimaginable the deliberate sinful malice against Jesus Christ and human beings one calls his 'friends' to so supress the Truth of Scripture to attempt to seduce them to believe a lie and the lies of false Christianity for what? your own egotistical pride that you are so much smarter than a typical Baptist or Sunday Morning Church attenders?
SteveR wrote: Perhaps if my people, Reformed Christians, were with less blemish I could demonize Apostolic Christian denominations for all their crimes, heresies and blasphemies. However from my study, I must conclude we are imperfect Christians like they are, and if we actually are closer to GOD...then its only by undeserved Blessing bestowed by our Heavenly Father
Just because we (maybe not you) Baptist type believers are blemished as you put it doesn't mean we have any excuse for calling evil (RC heresy, false religion, idolatry, blasphemy) Pro-Catholic ecumenism a good thing and separation from Catholicism as part of being holy unto the Lord Jesus Christ an evil thing,
any excuse whatsoever of lying against the Truth of Scripture
and promoting and endorsing deliberate disobedience to the commandments and teachings of God either

Brother Saint John UK Wales Wow! You are blessed! Unregenerate men simply do not comprehend the things of the spirit of God, things like "see to it that no one misleads you" "buy the Truth and sell it not"
Personally I had an apostate Dr in Theology malign me as unteachable years ago because I refused to buy into his liberal heretical teaching (he denied the Bible as being Truth from the pulpit and essentially made God out to be a liar) I wish I had realized then how blessed I was
SteveR wrote: I do so enjoy it when people make fools of themselves insisting the pope is the AC, especially when its so evident Francis couldnt handle a 4 hour shift as a greeter at Walmart without buckling to pressure
Born Again Christians with half a brain and any sense, any rightful fear of the LORD, ought to "vomit" at the filthy stinking of sinful corrupting diseased idea some any man upon this earth permits people (and those doing this) to call him (whoreship him) "Holy Father" as if he were God.
Why to call Francis I an Antichrist is not only the truth but sweet compared to the vile sinfulness of the reality. And graciously calling Francis 1 an Antichrist in the Truth of the word of God and the love of the Spirit to those who desperately need to be disabused of the enslaving priestcraft of the RCC, Imho is pleasing to God, something He can use in the saving of souls, even RC souls from Pro-Catholic Ecumenical lies and disinformation.
So observing you make yourself out to be a religous authority, "Do you call Francis 1 your brother in your faith/religious beliefs?"

Lisa First, Yes! We, all of us ought to be taking the demonic assaults against the Truth continually to the Father in our prayers, expecting real praying according to the word of God and the leading of the Spirit in the Name of Jesus to move literal mountains (how wickedly sinful if we don't?)
Second Imho it is a good witness/stand for the Truth to publically raise the objections He has and we don't have to agree with his choice to love him and defend him

I suppose the Romish organizations won't find this too much of an inconvenience considering all the homosexual nuns and priests that they already have working for them.
Jim I don't know exactly how Obama and the RCC will interact with each other in all this but I believe it is safe to say it will come out as another example of the spiritual whoredom that flows from those rejecting the Truth of the word of God, and those who prostitute themselves for state moneies
BTW it is interesting this matter of the state getting its money's worth from "an unfaithful church" is grieveous enough that even enemies of Biblical Christianity are opposed to it.
"Good Job" Thanks for sharing these posts of note from the other side, especailly without Pro-RC approval
The Real Stevenr Just a heads up, I think you already know the effeminate kinder gentler types will be out to malign you for being so insensitive and hurting the feelings of the "friends" of Obama

Jim Again I have to thank everyone who is praying for me, and especially everyone who is praying in accord with the word of God and the leading of the Holy Spirit for the preaching of the Gospel
Imho if we want to see the issue of abortion and the issue of Shariah decisively defeated
We must preach the word of God in the Power of the Holy Spirit, NOT the wisdom and kind good deeds of man, by timid whimpy eunuchs
It was a bold unapologetic preaching of Jesus Christ and a visible supernatural work of God that those in the early church prayed for (see Acts 4)when threatened and intimidated by those trying to silence them. It was a prayer God answered

Jim Thank you for your sympathy I have not been the first the local Pro-Catholic Ecumenicals Seeker Sensitive and increasingly emergent have had in their sights
But enough is enough They are ruining local churches here and other places They are ruining individual life of anyone who dares object to their errors on Biblical grounds
And worse they are putting a serious stumbling block in the path of the lost to hinder them from actually hearing the preaching of Jesus Christ, the preaching of the word of God, that calls men to repent and obey the Gospel
My burden is not so much I am vindicated but the God would be, and that me and others too might be on His side in all of this and what is going on in the U.S.
Michael Hranek wrote: Dear Get Real I appreciate your post as it makes me think
Let me apologize for interrupting this news thread.
But I would like to ask for prayer. Without getting into tale bearing/gossip and I certain do not have space to write the details out.
I believe I am being slandered and lied about to a friend who was not there behind my back by some in leadership in the Pro-Catholic Ecumenical Evangelical Pro-Life (anti-Gospel) movement, wrongly blaming me for an incident where a man with a female customer punched and broke a glass door at the local abortion clinic
My deepest concern is that this Pro-Catholic Ecumenical "movement" is out to hinder the preaach of the Gospel, malign, slander, bear false witness about and discredit people who do not bow to their ecumenical misleadership.
In my community there seems to be a very militant organized anti-evangelism (and anti-(real) praying) movement, a Ecumenical Shariahism if you will
The Fallacy of Cold Water Donuts touches on this

Get Real wrote: oh how i wish we only got the ones escaping their religion with much love from lady ozmliad
Dear Get Real I appreciate your post as it makes me think If Shariah is that bad to even Muslim people will I have compassion on Muslim people accordingly
to see all Muslim people possible in the will of God saved, from sin and from the demonish tyrannical abuse of Shariah too? Burdened and moved by God to pray, interceed, witness to, preach the Gospel to, show the genuine sacrifical agape love to, all that one might rightfully do to see sinners saved and belong to Jesus Christ as His beloved child forever?
I think I have much weeping, mourning, humbling myself to God to learn from Him and grow in the obedience of faith and the serving Him in the preaching of the Gospel
Thanks for your brief and powerful comment, well how it has worked on me.

Jim Thanks for the post Since I live in a heavily RC area it will be a blessing to me
Even as a rightful dealing of the issues involved in this "Lawmaker: Fire police chief who released Duggar report" will be a blessing to those who love the imperfect Duggars and those hurt by sexual abuse

sarpenfew wrote: Michael Don't encourage people ...........
........... to repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ to be save? Are you out of your everloving hyper-Calvinistic mind?
Seriously do you really want lost sinners to buy into an unrepentant unbelieving do nothing hyper-Calvinsim? Your not smarter than Scripture are you, which tells us things such as "You have not because you ask not."
Haven't you read "I'll show you my faith by my works"?
When you stand in front of the Lord Jesus Chrst will He see you as one who pridefully professed a whole heap of sophisticated religious stuff.
Or one who in brokenhearted conviction of your own sins (maybe you don't even know what that is _ unregenerate Calvinists wouldn't understand such a thing of the Spirit) in desperate faith cried out for mercy, humbly begging for what none of us deserves that Jesus would save you from your sins and give you eternal life?
BTW This isn't a religous game. I AM WARNING YOU NOW. Repent! Repent now before you reap the sour displeasure of God for acting like a stumbling block to people who would call upon the name of the Lord to be saved
Didn't Jesus Himself COMMAND that people come to Him? How can it be anykind of DIY salvation when men, women, girls and boys
Oops! I am going to say it: "Obey the Gospel!"
Let me ask you a question: Do you really have a Biblical grasp, and experiential faith what it truly means in the best sense of the wods (because no one in our flesh can begin to do this perfectly) to Come to Jesus CONFESSING you are a sinner? In figure of speech it is truly an emotional wilful ripping out of one's hard heart of flithy love of sin (remember I am using figurative language) in broken hearted sorrowful repentance in having sinned so heinously against Jesus Christ that one longs to be forgiven and cleansed from their OWN sin and by the grace of God never to commit it again
Some talk a lot about the Sovereignty of God which is very real and wonderful BUT Imho (as I am learning and have so much learning and growing to do) it is another thing entirely to see the HOLINESS OF GOD, TO SEE THE CROSS _ THE HOLY SON OF GOD CRUCIFIED FOR YOU and be anything but CHANGED IN THE DEPTH OF ONES BEING
Please Father, fill us with Your word and Spirit and send us to preach to sinners the Truth of Jesus Christ to them
I want to give praise and glory and honor to God because of a precious Baptist lady He let me meet in TN
I do not want to diminish that abuse by a man against a woman or a woman against a man whether physical, verbal, or sexual is anything less than a terrible evil thing
That is why I am staggered and humbled by the faith I found in a sister in Christ while I lived in Tennessee. This imperfect like we all are sister was the victim of from what I can tell years of cruel abuse, and humanly speaking had every reason to be bitter and feel sorry for herself
But in her life (in my wors here) the Cross was so real to her, she simply forgave the one who abused her and continued to, and wept over and over again that Jesus Christ loved her so much that HE DIED FOR HER SINS to save her from THEM (not merely the terrible abuse done her) and she loved Jesus Christ more than anything or anybody AND wonderfully showed His love and concern to others, even the worst of us (sinners). Her pastor told me that of all the people in their church there was no one he would rather have praying for him than this precious sister most people wouldn't have noticed was even there, other than perhaps to see streams of tears of love running down her face they might know nothing about
Jim Lincoln wrote: If the Pope wants better relationships with other religions he had better start telling the truth about his own.
Jim Getting anyone entrenched in their cherished idolaterous perversion of Christian RELIGION to own up to where they are wrong and in serious frightful heartbreaking sin against God to the point they repent and go on to live by and preach the Truth of Jesus Christ they once sought to blot out is harder than pulling teeth. It is a supernatural work only God can and must do to save sinners
The salvation of Catholic people (and others too) is a very good thing to be concerned with BUT it is a burden we ought to continually cast upon God our Father in our praying lest wrongly trying to carry it ourselves it crush us under its weight.
We need to trust God, He knows the truth whether of not anyone ever admits it our not, and if by the grace of God we have seen it not to worry if others admit it or not but to treasure the Truth He has given us, seeking Him for wisdom to use knowledge of the truth aright, especially to trust that God in His sovereignty will use us to see lost people saved to the Praise, Honor and Glory of the Lord Jesus Christ, our Immeasurably Worthy Savior

Catholics can be saved the same way everyone else is. of course,once they are,then actions will follow and they will come out of the deception of the RCC. There is only one "version" of the Gospel.If you read posts carefully,you will find that those who love the roman catholics are the ones who speak the truth to them. Only an evil person would want to comfort them on their way to Hell.
s c You have said this well.
Your hatred of damning lies, false religion, false gospels, false Christs is a "crime" against the god of this world and the antichrists who serve him.
Don't you know troubling them with the Truth of Jesus Christ and the HELL that awaits unrepentant unbelieving sinners is socially unacceptable
Why! If they owned the Truth you are telling them that the Bible says they would REPENT and throw themselves on the MERCY of God to be saved from there sins, and find in Jesus Christ eternal life

along with RC Sproul Jr (could be an old timey Calvinist more like Spurgeon than modern do nothing hyper types)
reported of people who are pro-Catholic ecumenical pro-lifers opposing the preaching of the Gospel is factual
both the local pastor who sent me the link and myself have personally experienced ecumenical pro-lifers who do not want the gospel preached nor signs with Scripture Verses on them (such as: "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you ..." Jeremiah 1:5)
