    Yikes, that was like 2 miles from my house.

    Everybody needs to hide yo’ kids, hide yo’ wife, and hide yo’ husband ’cause they’re killing everyone out here.

    Sometimes women are too embarrassed to answer truthfully with polls like this.

    You say I’m misinformed. You tell me to read the Catechism of the Catholic Church (which I’ve cited); I CITED THE COUNCIL OF TRENT! I don’t know what more you want!

    Look, I’ve studied Scripture for many years, formally for 8 grueling years. I’ve graduated from perhaps the finest seminary in the United States. I’ve read and studied the entire New Testament in the original Greek, many parts of the Old Testament in the original Hebrew. I am not some nutjob. I am a highly trained theologian and it’s quite possible I may know more about Catholic doctrine than even you. I say this not to say that I am “holier than thou” or to look down on you, but simply to emphasize that I am not ill-informed.

    I would love to discuss the bible’s doctrine of justification further, but I need to prepare for a meeting at 6:30.

    By the way, is anyone else being logged off after every comment? It’s getting really irritating.

    The Catechism of the Catholic Church promulgated by Pope John Paul II has a section on the doctrine of “The Final Purification, or Purgatory.” Paragraphs 1031, and 1032

    You are absolutely correct. “Take and eat; this IS my body.” “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” These are the very words of Christ. To claim that the bread and wine merely represent the body and blood of Christ is false teaching. In fact, Paul says in 1 Corinthians 11:29, “For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself.”

    Scroll down to the canons concerning justification. Read through them (especially starting at #9). The Roman Pontiff says of anyone who rightly believes that forgiveness of sins is obtained through faith alone, “LET HIM BE ANATHEMA.” This is official doctrine of the Catholic Church and it rejects the truth of the gospel.

    Catholic doctrine teaches that God “infuses his grace” into us so we can then earn our own salvation by our good works. That’s the point of purgatory (a teaching still on the records). Purgatory is a place we suffer until we make up for all the sins we’ve committed on earth–sins we didn’t have time to make up for by doing good works. Purgatory is one example of many doctrines completely fabricated by the papacy, with absolutely no basis in Scripture.

    I don’t believe that I’m the best kind of Christian, no. But I do understand Scripture. And I know that we don’t need anyone else to pray on our behalf before Jesus or God. “For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:5) God is a God of love, who in the greatest act of love sent his Son to pay the price for our sins. We are considered as dear children of God and can approach God directly in complete confidence. (Galatians 4:4-7; 1 John 5:14,15) We have no need to have someone “put in a good word for us.” I say this not to attack, but it is meant as a comfort to believers.

    Most importantly I understand the central doctrine of the bible, which is salvation purely as the gift of God, through faith alone, given and won for us on the cross of Calvary. It is the very reason God led Luther to rediscover this vital truth and break away from the Catholic church nearly 500 years ago. The vast majority of those hundreds of denominations, while disagreeing on relatively minor things, understand that forgiveness of sins is never earned by our good works. It is a free gift obtained by faith alone, purely by the goodness and grace of God. The Catholic Church firmly rejects this core and central truth of Scripture.

  • May 21, 2013 at 5:15pm

    I’m not saying that Catholics are bad people. Far from it. It’s just that to believe, as official Catholic doctrine clearly teaches, that salvation is earned by your own good works goes against the most vital teaching of Jesus and all of Scripture. “For it is by grace (the undeserved love and mercy of God toward us sinners) you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8,9)

    Everyone thinks when the Antichrist comes he’ll be waving a big flag that says he’s the Antichrist and that they’ll be able to spot him right away. He will deceive many and will lead them astray. The papacy has led and is currently leading many millions of souls astray. Look at the Catholicism of Africa and Central and South America, which is much closer to what pure Catholicism teaches. It’s extremely superstitious. It removes the role of Christ almost entirely and replaces him with his mother. Pure Catholic teaching is totally salvation-by-works and not by salvation-by-faith (which, by the way, so is Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witness-ism).

    I’m not being intolerant, I’m simply pointing out that Scripture clearly warns against the one:

    1) who sets himself up in the church (not a political leader, 2 Thess 2:4),
    2) whose spirit was already at work in Paul’s day (the idea of a superbishop to rule all the major Christian hubs was already being tossed around in the first century) and who would continue until Judgment Day (Not a single, once-and-done figure but an office that continues until Judgment Day) (2 Thess 2:7,8)
    3) who works counterfeit miracles, signs, and wonders (2 Thess 2:9)
    4) who deceives many and who opposes God. (2 Thess 2:4,10) This one is the most important. The pope declares that forgiveness of sins is obtained by our own work and flatly rejects the most vital truth of the gospel, namely, that salvation is won for us–apart from works–by the merits of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. Salvation is a free gift by God, but saying it’s by our own good works that we are saved essentially denies the need for a Savior. See Council of Trent. Sess. VI, Can. 11; Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraph 847)
    5) who proclaims himself to be God (2 Thess 2:4) The pope claims authority to make doctrine over and against the bible, claims authority over souls in both this life and the next, refuses to be judged by the church, and claims that obedience to himself is the only path to heaven. To make such claims is to claim to be God.

    Who else could fit so perfectly the prophecies of Scripture? T

    “The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders.” (2 Thessalonians 2:9)

  • May 21, 2013 at 2:49pm

    “Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God…The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders.” (2 Thessalonians 2:3,4,9)

    The papacy is the very Antichrist warned of in the pages of Scripture. Paul warns of him in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12; John warns of him in Revelation 13:11-17, Revelation 17; and Daniel predicts his coming in Daniel chapters 7 and 11.

    Does Mercury One take blood donations? I’m the universal donor.

    Whatever. Obama did the right thing here extending this courtesy to the prime minister. And yes, if the commander in chief tells a marine to break uniform protocol, that is a direct command and should be obeyed.

    It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Martin Bashir would make such ridiculous unfounded claims. After all, this is a guy who reportedly bathes in the blood of children and sleeps every night with a pillow stuffed with a dead litter of kittens. He is a vicious, bloodthirsty animal.

    In all seriousness, though, he’s talking to an audience that has been brainwashed to fear anyone on the right and anyone who supports gun rights. Sadly there are people in his MSNBC audience who would actually believe such an outrageous claim.

    That is a soul for whom Christ shed his blood on the cross of Calvary. Look at people in that light, and your mind changes for even your most bitter enemy.

    I guess I was speaking from experience. I was put under when I had my wisdom teeth removed. I’ve been told my teeth have unusually long roots, so maybe my dentist did that to spare me.

    Typically they put you under when they pull teeth. He probably woke up like that.

    Wow, a local news station doing actual news. Up here in Milwaukee it’s just Packers and weather and traffic and Packers again. It really is worthless.
