Super Bowl Sunday: A Church Outreach Opportunity?
A majority of churches across the country say they'll still be holding services on Super Bowl Sunday.

According to a new study from LifeWay Research, 68 percent of Protestant pastors say their church typically has some activity on Sunday night. However, about 59 percent say they'll continue as normal on the night of the Super Bowl.

"It is easy to think everyone is watching the game," said Scott McConnell, executive director of LifeWay Research, "but even during the Super Bowl, millions of Americans are doing other things that are important to them. For many, that includes attending church." ...

Unprofitable Servant, Jim Lincoln and a couple others on here have intimated that unless I leave the Catholic Church and just attend and be a member of that Evangelical Protestant Church I attend on Sunday that I am not really saved. That is why I keep stating that church membership has nothing to do with salvation. Naturally my priest would state that I practice the RCC way of salvation because he is not cognizant of the fact that I deny transubstantiation, deny the Mass is a sacrifice and deny the sacraments have anything to do with salvation. But since I deny transubstantiation, deny the Mass is a sacrifice and deny the sacraments have anything to do with salvation then I do not practice the RCC way of salvation. And most Catholics would not state that they are trusting Christ to get them to Heaven. That lady friend I have at River of Life Church stated that she had her Catholic father before he passed away pray to Jesus to accept Him as his Savior. And thus her Father is in Heaven because he had accepted Jesus as his Savior before he passed away. Today I met with Pastor Steve of River of Life Church to discuss me being Baptized via immersion at that church. I was asked if I had accepted Jesus as my Savior and I stated I did 20 years ago during an Altar Call.

John, you keep making this about whether or not you are a member a non-Catholic church. Salvation has nothing to do with church membership. Nobody but you follows that rabbit trail. So please stop the false accusations. Plus you are making salvation to be a mere intellectual consent instead of supernatural work of God from above.

From the Catholic Bible (Psalm 119:104)

From thy precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false path.

Note the person born from above who grows from the milk and meat of the Word, hates every false path. But here is the fruit of your "salvation" you love the false paths of the RCC, you say they worship aright, you practice the same thing they do, (you say no I don't, but let us ask your priest and he would say you do). You even say a false prophet "praying" over the sick is the same as what is in James dealing with those who are part of the body of Christ.

Pretty sure most Catholics when asked, would tell you they are trusting Christ to get them to heaven. You have to pry to get a more definite response that would include sacramentalism and works.

Remember John, those whom God has saved, out of love for God and His truth, hate what God hates and would thus leave false churches that blaspheme His name.

That lady friend I have at River of Life Church that I attend on Sunday mornings during worship on a Sunday in early January when Pastor Steve asked if anybody was grateful for anything stated that she was grateful that her Catholic father had accepted Jesus as his Savior before he passed away in early December. So her Catholic father is in Heaven even though he had not left the Catholic Church before passing away.

Did a priest come to his bedside and deliver Viaticum? Was it a Catholic priest that conducted his funeral? Again actions speak way louder than words.
The Catholic father of that lady friend I have at River of Life Church did not receive Viaticum but did receive the Anointing of the Sick(which is biblical) from his Catholic priest. Naturally that lady friend and her siblings arranged for a Catholic priest to conduct their father's Funeral Mass as he was a Catholic. On New Years Day during worship Pastor Steve asked if anybody was grateful for anything. And that lady friend stated she was grateful that her father had accepted Jesus as his Savior before he passed away in early December. It seems that you believe that if a Catholic accepts Jesus as their Savior on their deathbed that they are not really saved because they did not leave the Catholic Church and did not unite with an Evangelical Protestant Church. That is totally unbiblical.

Both the Roman Catholics and the JW's will tell you that they do in fact trust in Jesus as saviour.
Is your stated form of "trust" different or even more powerful than theirs?
False. JW's do not trust in Jesus as Savior since they deny that Jesus is God. Jesus can't be Savior without being God. The only Catholics who do trust in Jesus alone for salvation are those who have embraced Jesus as Savior and trust entirely in Him alone for salvation after watching or listening to an Evangelical Protestant minister preach that salvation comes only through embracing Jesus as Savior and trusting in Him alone for salvation. And that is not every Catholic who has done that.

Well John, like I said being a child of God is synonymous with being saved. No one can argue that.
Make sure you mention your brother-in-law ,your pastor and those in your Sunday school class at the Judgment. You better not hear the words, "depart from Me, I never knew you". The issue is not whether or not you claim to know the Lord, but whether or not He knows/knew you.
What arrogance. If you believe that I am not saved because I trust entirely in Jesus alone for salvation then you must also believe that every member at River of Life Church that I attend on Sunday mornings is also not saved because they trust entirely in Jesus alone for salvation? And I have a lady friend at River of Life Church(where I attend on Sunday mornings) stated her Catholic father who passed away in early December accepted Jesus as his Savior before he passed away. I suppose you believe that he was not really saved because he did not leave the Catholic Church and did not unite with an Evangelical Protestant Church? Church attendance at any church including an Evangelical Protestant Church is not required for salvation and entering Heaven.

Frank, All right. Knock it off with this insanity that I am not really saved because I attend the RCC. If I embraced Jesus as my Savior and Lord and trust entirely in Jesus alone for salvation then I saved. That is what the Bible states about how to get saved. I attend a Baptist Church(River of Life Church) on Sunday mornings in the small town I reside in. And Pastor Steve accepts that I am saved. And the members there that I know accept that I am saved. I go to Adult Sunday School before worship every Sunday at Baptist Church. Isn't it good enough that I attend a Baptist Church on Sunday mornings?

JohnY,

[14] Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? [15] And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? [16] And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in [them]; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. [17] Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you, [18] And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (2Co 6:14-18)

Well parrot, for starters the above verse 18 is dependent on verses 14-17; especially verses 16 and 17.

Now, since you attend the RCC, according to your own testimony, you are not a son of the most high. That is your testimony and I only posted this for the occasional viewer who "might" be confused by your comment.

It is not possible for someone to be saved and not be a child of God. They are synonymous terms.

fine John, prove me wrong, LEAVE the Catholic church.
Why should I leave the Catholic Church? It is not required for salvation to leave the Catholic Church and just attend an Evangelical Protestant Church. Isn't it good enough that I attend a Baptist Church(River of Life Church is listed under Baptist Churches on the internet) on Sunday mornings without leaving the Catholic Church? Just because I attend the Catholic Church also does not mean I practice the RCC way of salvation. If I deny transubstantiation, deny the Mass is a sacrifice and deny the sacraments have anything to do with salvation then logically that proves that I do not practice the RCC way of salvation.

Is Pastor Steve aware you plan on leaving the "Baptist" church and be only part of the RCC if you move out out of state? Does that lady friend decide who is a proper candidate for believer's baptism?
This is it. I have had it with you continually stating that I practice the RCC way of salvation when I state that I do not practice the RCC way of salvation considering I deny transubstantiation, deny the Mass is a sacrifice and deny the sacraments have something to do with salvation. Since when does Baptism in a Evangelical Protestant Church result in the candidate for Baptism becoming a member of said church if said candidate does not wish to be placed on the membership roll? At River of Life Church the only way one can becomes a member there is to take a discovery class taught by Pastor Steve.

I just went to the website. Your Church didn't change their doctrine, just their name as a recommitment to the community they serve. I would say they appear much like any other Independent Baptist Church that dot the landscape in MN.

Its also possible that the title 'Baptist' brought negative connotations to some in that community

Baptism via immersion is just a public profession of faith in Christ alone.
