Graham is not a false prophet. Graham preaches the biblical doctrine of salvation.

We don't believe this because others merely said so, and we follow blindly, but rather, scripture points to it, and describes it pretty clearly, in my opinion. I'm not quite sure how anyone arrives at any other conclusion, unless cherry-picked descriptors are being pulled out to build the case. As a whole, prophetic scripture seems to point straight to Rome. I think anyone who believes that Israel is the great harlot, has to work really, really hard to build that case, and build it with very scant prooftexts. I'm not claiming to know for certain, but what I've studied, just doesn't jive any other way.
This past Sunday at my Baptist Church the sermon given by Pastor Steve was titled "Family Matters" from Ephesians 5:15-21. There was also a child dedication in which the 2 year old daughter of the Associate Pastor was dedicated to Jesus.
John Lee wrote: I wonder if it's a mortal or venial sin in the Roman Catholic Monstrosity for a member of the laity to report on their clergy. After all, it's the priests who have got the laity's souls in their grubby mitts. So they say.
It is not a sin for Catholic laity to report clergy to the authorities for sexual abuse.
Every Christian should vote Republican because the Republican party is the conservative political party and because voting Democrat is a sin. Voting for a third party presidential candidate is totally useless since a third party candidate has zero chance of winning. Getting Trump reelected should be what every Christian in the United States should want because Trump would be the best choice for this nation. Only a Christian who is a total wack job would not vote for Trump in 2020. Trump is a true Born Again Christian as he has stated that he gave his life to Jesus and trusts in Him alone for salvation.

This past Sunday at my Baptist Church the sermon given by Pastor Steve was titled "Legion" from Mark 5:1-20 about the demon possessed man that Jesus commanded the demon spirits to go into those pigs. Then after worship there was a meeting for the members to confirm a man to become the new Deacon. I voted yes for the man to become the new Deacon.
Harris claims to be a saved Baptist. But in reality she is an unsaved reprobate without Christ because she is a Democrat who supports abortion, homosexuality(and every other perversion associated with homosexuality).
