“Protestants are not Christians”
Do you see forgiveness, facts, or love, in this comment?
“Catholics are slaves of Satan.”
What about this comment?
Because both are from the man who calls himself Zip.

God’s peace be upon you as well.
Which kind of discourse do you like?
The kind in which a person insinuates another is a fraud? Dishonest? Bringing dishonor to God?
The kind in which a person seeks first to be understood, fails to understand the other, gives no benefit of the doubt, fails to consider the content, the logic and the argument, then says they are leaving the conversation?
Please advise because I can’t read your mind, only your example.

In 180AD Catholic Saint Iranaeus wrote, “We ought not, therefore, as that [priest] remarks, to be puffed up … but ought ourselves to fear, lest perchance, after [we have come to] the knowledge of Christ, if we do things displeasing to God, we obtain no further forgiveness of sins, but be shut out from His kingdom.”

As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts Isa 55:9
Careful not to think you know exactly what Jesus knew and thought, and why. Even if you don’t believe He is God, He is.
I hope you one day come to believe in the Blessed Trinity and can join the Christian flock.

“You seem to be saying that unless one honestly repents of each of their own infractions, no matter how minor, then that is license to determine that breaking such appropriate, fair, and just laws, rules and regulations is okay”
No. This is a rather terrible misunderstanding the meaning of my written words.
Interpretation is key.
But not to make this into an easy proof against sola scriptura….I just wanted to answer directly that No, that isn’t what I meant.

The purpose of dusting off one’s sandals isn’t to first blow the dust into the other person’s face, then make a quick exit.
You have missed my point. If you think character length of a post which tries to help save a man’s immortal soul on a website is a problem to God, then you have forgotten Jesus healed and exorcised demons on the Sabbath. You know what character length OUGHT to keep a man up at night, posting repeatedly in the search for answers?? Book, chapter, verse length of the Sacred Scriptures. You can’t believe that he cares about comment length on a website and not the length of the written Word of God.
And if I saw a man taking his own life on the bridge, but the bridge had a sign saying “no pedestrian traffic on bridge” would I obey the sign or try to save the person?
It’s my opinion that whether snoop posts in one long post or two shorter is of no consequence eternally. Whether Zip and anyone agreeing with Zip consider the content IS of eternal consequence, to them.
The Holy Spirit is God, and therefore is never confused, and never says two exactly opposed things. Therefore Christians should love a person who shows such confusion, but since he won’t listen to Catholics- the only ones trying to love him, basically- we hope he will listen to HIMSELF. That’s why his own words are posted back for him – repentance is the aim, for his own salvation. Evil spirits lie and confuse men. God never does.

That’s funny, Snooop.
Is it a sin to put your garbage can out the evening before trash pick up because you are leaving town, if your HOA says not to? Or is it better to have stinky trash sit for weeks attracting rodents and roaches into the neighborhood? Sure we should be good neighbors and citizens but honestly your concern over Snooop’s posts seems pharisaical, the way you strain the gnat to swallow the camel.
I say, take out the trash.
Snooop is doing Zip a service of love. Concern for a person’s soul makes him a better citizen than those who encourage another soul to plant his flag on the land of confusion and contradiction.
Something to consider is that unless we are perfectly repentant for each time we exceeded the speed limit by 1 mile per hour, or checked out 16 items in the express check out lane, or kept a library book an extra day, we should not condemn others for similar.

I thought the Why you stopped, is because it is easier to attack and go hide since you can’t stay and defend your false attacks.
You do no damage to the Bride of Christ, but you damage your soul.
You say Jesus sinned, yet didn’t answer Pilate. No wonder you liken yourself to Jesus, since you see him as a sinner.
You sin, and nope, you won’t answer Pilate either.
But you will give an account to JESUS for every word you uttered against His Bride.
And finally, if you can’t tell the difference between a false charge and YOUR OWN WORDS, TYPED BY YOU, in FULL CONTRADICTION of OTHER WORDS, TYPED BY YOU, then discernment is lacking.

Let me get this straight.
Zip states the Holy Spirit tells him two PRECISELY CONTRADICTORY things and you don’t take any time to warn him about what that is doing to his soul – how blaspheming, lying, deceiving, and hating are mortal sins.
But you take the time to question Snooop about an arbitrary man-made character length that has no eternal significance to anyone’s life?

You keep saying the Bible is the final authority.
On what do you base that opinion?
We all know that isn’t anywhere in the Bible, either explicit or implied. We know it isn’t in historical Christianity. We know Jesus never mentioned a Bible as far as the Gospels record.
We know of no teaching of Jesus through Himself or the Apostles that ever said anything about a future 66 book Bible being the final authority on anything.
Gita makes the point that what you all mean when you speak against Catholicism is that you want us to agree with your INTERPRETATION of your VERSION and TRANSLATION of the Protestant “Bible”. Catholics are ancient and historical, we follow revealed truth, and right reason. Unfortunately, thinking the Bible is the Final Authority on interpreting and defining itself is not ancient, historical, revealed in Scripture, or logical.
Gita is exactly right, you haven’t answered her question.
Respectfully, she has shown you the logical fallacy of your argument.
Two protestants exist.
Both believe they are indwelt with the Holy Spirit.
One believes Baptism saves (he is Lutheran).
One believes Baptism is a symbol (he is Baptist).
Both point to Scripture to prove their view.
Which ONE is right?
Do you argue Luther was wrong about Baptism?
Can you explain how God let him set the canon of the FINAL AUTHORITY but had him simultaneously lead hundreds of thousands astray on whether Baptism saves?
Titanium, “hermeneutics” is not the right word.

Scarier to Zip than a torch, it a mirror.
A reflection of his own errors shown to him.
No wonder he continues to hate Catholics. You see, almost no one else expects a professed-Christian to bear fruit and love his neighbor, admit when he is wrong, and repent for his lies, such as “I am not white” It makes us Catholics unpopular and we are okay with that. God ‘s is the only opinion that matters.
But if the Holy Spirit is depicted as a fire, and people in Christ are the light of the world, then, sure, the torch analogy fits.
After all, we have a sacred duty to spread light in the darkness. A torch does a great job of that. It is a controlled burn capable of bringing warmth and truth into the coldest most cavernous hearts. Even ones whose only contained substances are delusions of grandeur and hatred.
Zip, Jesus loves you, but He calls His followers to a higher standard. He says to have hate in your heart is to commit murder. To equate yourself with Jesus is blasphemy and mortal sin. So I pray, once again, that you repent and turn to Jesus. Ask the Holy Spirit (whom you once said WASN’T God, but then changed your tune) to come into your heart and help you to find the humility it takes to repent and begin to follow Jesus (who is God). Really follow Him.
That is, if you wish to enter life.
God bless and I hope you are praying through the tragedy that hit so close to home.

You do realize we ALL die eventually – as GOD established it. Meaning, HE is the author of life. It is His to decide when we live and die.
Do we blame God when a 90 year old man dies peacefully in his sleep?
No, so why would we blame God when the life of a sicko atheist tyrant is ended?
Do you weep for Hitler?

King David REPENTED of those mortal sins. Psalm 51.
Just remember how much Donald needs prayers to humble himself and be sorry for his sins. Even though being Presbyterian he may think it doesn’t matter, as a Catholic, repentance is essential after mortal sins.

This takes nothing away from the work paramedics do.
If I compliment your hair it doesn’t mean paramedics’ hairstyles are ugly.
I am simply saying the conservative media is making a yuuuuge deal out of Tebow's role. He is a great guy but he did nothing. Also, he was awful at the plate and ran face-first into the outfield wall.
players have been running into the outfield wall for as long as the wall and the players have existed, including babe ruth, His wall was concrete. Do i need to inform you of the amount of players who have gone 0 for the day?

do you know much about Tim and how a doctor recommended his mother abort him? Since she has chosen LIFE (not to kill her baby) this has been the underlying theme of Tim’s great witness to the world about God.
Miracle or not, Tim Tebow’s actions (fruits) are proof that God is with him. He is an example to every Christian and a living testimony of the beauty and wonder of life in the face of those without God who encourage killing babies.
Your god commanded the killing of babies in case you missed this little bit of God's word. Funny thing, but I find most Christians have much better moral standards than the god they believe in and the book they say is his "perfect word".
1 Samuel 15:3Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
3 Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.

To be fair, wasn’t he a registered and voting DEMOCRAT back then?
October 7, 2016 at 9:50am
That is good to hear. I take it you are not Catholic.
Your denomination states that abortion is intrinsically evil in ALL circumstances.
This is promising because every one I’ve looked up (The major denominations) do not have this position.
Episcopal, Methodist, Lutheran, Presbyterian, Baptist, etc. have exceptions and suggestions.
Are you LCMS? That denomination has become more and more Catholic, (praise the Holy Spirit!) so that would not be a surprise to find out, even though I have never looked it up for this topic.

His reasoning is just fine.
Just because you don’t agree with his conclusions doesn’t make his reasoning the problem, you know?
I didn't read this article. I have read a lot of his articles though and it IS his reasoning that is the problem. Like I said no matter if i agree or disagree with his conclusions I have never once heard a solid, non contradicting, logical argument from this man. Even if i disagree with someone's conclusion if their premiss is logical and the conclusion logical. Then their argument is valid. Matt Walsh's arguments are the majority, invalid.

Well Pope Peter denied Jesus three times but I know what you mean.
