Top Bishop: Europe Will Soon Be Muslim Because of Our Stupidity
Everyone in Italy and the rest of Europe will â€śsoon be Muslimâ€ť because of the countryâ€™s â€śstupidityâ€ť, a prominent Italian archbishop has said.
Monsignor Carlo Liberati, Archbishop Emeritus of Pompeii, said that Islam will soon become Europeâ€™s main religion thanks to the huge number of Muslim migrants alongside the increasing secularism of native Europeans.
Speaking to Italian Catholic journal La Fede Quotidiana, the archbishop said: â€śIn 10 years we will all be Muslims because of our stupidity. Italy and Europe live in a pagan and atheist way, they make laws that go against God and they have traditions that are proper of paganism.
â€śAll of this moral and religious decadence favours Islam.â€ť...

From what I've seen, Steve's defense of Roman Catholocism seems to be defined and dictated by the good works they do. Seems like good people, and good things, according to worldly standards, tips the balance in their favor, not matter what doctrines they choose to believe and practice, or what doctrines the church itself believes and teaches. Seems like being a good person will outweigh their ignorance and/or disobedience on the day of judgement. I think Steve also seems to believe that, though wrong, they all mean well, so that will count for something, and the mere fact that they have the faith to believe in those wrong things, will be enough to save them because they meant well. This is the logic I've gleaned from his comments over time. I can also quote him, pretty much verbatim, from years ago: "I believe Roman Catholics are saved...they just don't know how, or when it happened".

You are a false prophet because the Bible states not to speculate as to when the Second Coming will take place.

Nik, any differences occur when we discuss the state of man in Adam.
How do you understand the words "neither indeed can be" in the following texts?
Romans 8:7-9 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. (8) So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. (9) But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
If the "carnal mind" is the state of man before conversion, he is "in the flesh"; he is not subject to God's law, neither can he be subject to God's law. In other words, he is at enmity with God's law and cannot keep the law even if he tried to.
Not disagreeing with anything you say T all John ,,,these are my points exactly, All I say is that you choose to do these things, God draws but you choose to come God does not force you to follow ,you do so of your own freewill. A commandment does or does not have to be obeyed or a law be kept or not it's up to you you decide Everyone of your comments shows that Praise the Lord

Nik, the simple gospel command is to repent, believe on Christ's sacrifice for sin, receive Christ as Lord and Saviour.
Even simpler, "Come to Jesus that ye might have life."
The sinner is fully responsible for how he reacts or responds to the gospel commands.
If men perish in their sins, they will never be able to blame God for their eternal loss.
texts I mentioned: Hebrews 7:25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
Acts 17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
Mark 1:14-15 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, (15) And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
Mark 16:15-16 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. (16) He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
God, they all need to hear about Jesus, who is mighty to save all that come unto God by him. God now commandeth all men everywhere to repent, so repent ye and believe the gospel said Jesus. This is all that God requires. He that believeth and is baptised shall
Wow John that sounds like something I would say!!!! Only thing when I say it.......KAPOW BUT Mathew 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Praise the Lord
Satan is taking over in western nations but Islam is only a side show. The Antichrist will be Liberal and Liberalism will destroy the nations as it is beginning to do.
The religions of Roman Catholic, Anglican and protestant are already on the demise. Islam is weakened by its own built in hostility and conflict which destroys it as dominant power in the countries where it exists already.
Liberalism on the other hand is beginning to flourish and gain ground in all the dominant areas of influence. The western governments, (politics) the western 'religions' the European Union, the United Nations all have the seeds of Liberalism and combine together as an insidious but influential dominance. Both Europe and America exhibit the authority and influence which it gains in all ideologies political, social and religious.
The Antichrist will be Liberal not Islamic.

Should I read or see constant wickedness, and dark things, even though they are our reality, it effects me deeply. I need a good balance, or I'm dragged, mentally, into ugly, dark places. Thanks God for God, and the light to Pierce through today's darkness.
Thanks Christopher, that is precisely what I'm talking about.
The ministry of the Perfect Man was indeed balanced, and all his words were directed to real people. We are to become like him, not invent ways to serve him which are unbiblical.
