I'm coming from this position:

The ONLY way to KNOW anything (like a tree) or a person is BY ITS FRUIT. I think that is one of the things taught in Sunday School. You know a thing by what it produces.
People produce words and actions. These things begin as thoughts. Thoughts are not fruit. Words and actions are fruit. You can observe the actions and listen to the words of men - this is what is called the fruit. Fruit is something you can see. You can't judge mens hearts (eg motives, hidden secret thoughts) you can only inspect their fruit. If words are edifying - building up - we might say they are 'good fruit'. If actions are destructive we might call them bad fruit.
Are you with me?

44 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.
Perhaps there was some confusion over the word 'inspector'. As an inspector I am not the judge. I inspect the fruit. I'm not judging it. I'm allowed to inspect. Which are to be preserved or not is not my business. I'm just wanting to see to it that the quality of the fruit from my orchard is acceptable to the canner. Otherwise my reputation as an orchardist is damaged.

I did not believe that it was arrogant. I do apologize for any perceived or actual arrogance. To me, it would seem more arrogant to believe one can be a fruit inspector and know if one is saved by judging their works. It occurs to me eternal salvation is not by our deeds but by the deeds of Jesus Christ. I would further suggest it to be arrogant or a misinterpretation to think those Jews that believed but did not leave the synagogue were not eternally saved or that God's people who were called out of Babylon were no longer God's people if they didn't come out. I will look forward to any scripture you might desire to post for I do love the word and am anxious to be corrected by it. Grace and peace to ya.

Thats really good to hear Lurker because Christians who condemn others are not under grace themselves. Since all are born into darkness all are in need of light. The darkness is not a obstacle to God who is Light.

Besides no one can condemn another who has assurance of faith, their condemnation is made irrelevant.

Grace and Peace to you.

Jesus is seated on the right hand of the majesty on high.
Now what? Hint: He appointed means. And so I come back to the same question yet again. Are the appointed means to obtain "so great salvation" to be found in the RCC?
Yes but you were always going to do that.
I'm happy with the understanding I have. Men live in darkness until they see the light.
I'm not sure what you are getting now so don't bother to reply - I won't.
Don't bother accusing me of not being saved or anything - I have assurance.
I don't know who can or can not potentially come into the light from their position of darkness but as far as I am aware the offer of grace has not been removed yet. Anyone living in darkness is a candidate for seeing the light I think.

The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. (Isa 9:1-2)

My point? That it is only people who walk in darkness who can see a great light.
No church, denomination or race have the light. The light comes to people who live in darkness. Not from people of any church or religion to another.
Jesus is the light. He is a light to the nations - not a light in a nation. Or a church. People who live in darkness, such as RC's and many probably in your own church, still live in darkness.

I asked: "Am I to assume, then, that it is your firm belief and argument that the uncorrupted gospel Paul preached, Christ crucified, shines forth from the RCC?Then how, pray tell, can anyone (SteveR, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, you (?)) assert that blood bought, born again Christians can be found in the RCC? Is there another means of salvation? Is the answer a secret??Exactly. Everyone can toss about their opinions and accuse whoever doesn't agree as being reprobate or someone can step up to the plate and give a biblical explanation of how saving light can shine forth from darkness.
What are you going to do?
A people who lived in darkness have seen a great light ... Isaiah.

I agree.
Then what of this?
Chapter XI
Of Justification
II. Faith, thus receiving and resting on Christ and His righteousness, is the alone instrument of justification:
What is meant by "the alone instrument of justification"?
Eph 2:8 "For by grace are ye saved through faith"

By God's grace, and using the means of knowledge (His Word/Gospel) which also consists of Christ crucified; his death and the shedding of his blood are used to bring sinners to faith along with the work of the Holy Spirit.

Are these; His knowledge, His grace, His blood, also "instruments of justification" as well as faith?

comes from the hearing of His word; His gospel, knowing Him.

Of Saving Faith

The grace of faith, whereby the elect are enabled to believe to the saving of their souls, is the work of the Spirit of Christ in their hearts; and is ordinarily wrought by the MINISTRY OF THE WORD Heb. x. 39; 2 Cor. iv. 13; Eph. i. 17,18, 19; Eph. ii. 8; Rom. x. 14, 17;

II. By this faith, a Christian believeth to be true whatsoever is REVEALED IN THE WORD……
John iv. 42; I Thess. ii. 13; 1 John v. 10; Acts xxiv. 14; Rom. xvi. 26; …….


Of Justification

III. “both freely, not for anything in them; their justification is only of FREE GRACE; that both the exact justice, and RICH GRACE OF GOD, might be glorified in the justification of sinners.”
Rom. v. 8, 9, 10, 19; 1 Tim. ii. 5, 6; Heb. x. 10, 14…..


Of Justification
“by imputing the OBEDIENCE and

ROM 3:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood
EPH 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.

I probably had not finished editing my post when you quoted it. Perhaps now my point is clearer?
No, i still don't understand what you are trying to convey, especially this statement, "The act of believing by means of faith is part of Christ's righteousness... " What does this mean?

The Bible and the Reformation separates these two organisations anyway.

2Thes 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
