everything isn't about politics. She had some good accomplishments. Hopefully she was saved but if not it should just cause us further grief. A man lost his wife of 73 years, a family lost a mom, grandmother, and great grandmother. Conner had an appropriate response.

Just maybe creation is not a witness to the blind just as the gospel preacher is not a witness to the deaf. Doesn't mean that there isn't a witness just because some are incapable of receiving that witness!

I think for their cursing.
You clearly haven't a clue of the meaning of 1 John 4.2, if you use the minimum face value meaning to include Roman Catholics as possessing the Spirit of God.
Your understanding is so darkened, one hardly knows where to start with you.
Very many have attempted to show you that Justification by faith is the heart of the gospel and so a crucial doctrine one must understand and embrace to be a true Christian. Since the RCC does not believe this their false gospel can never lead anyone to salvation.
If you believe different you have to show that the RCC has changed. Since you can produce no such evidence, you can conjecture all you like about some being saved, but don't expect any of us to be following you soon in this or at least until hell freezes over.
Maybe you have seen Spurgeon.org. Phil has a wonderful website and a lot of humour e.g. see the bad theology links http://www.spurgeon.org/~phil/bookmark.htm
Maybe there should be an 'off topic' comment section here. If a particular post in a section is off topic then it can be removed there. Also folk can post more personal info and yes even humour (as long as it is not offensive)then leaving actual headed sections on doctrine etc for exactly that. Just a thought?

double-minded MAN? NO GENDER-SPEAK PLEASE!
Now then ---------------------- Maybe Windspirit should post for Maybe. Windspirit seems to know how and how not someone should post. Content alone isn't good enough for Windspirit. A post has to have a certain amount of passion in order to pass Windspirit's muster.
