It is not required for salvation that a Catholic who comes to Christ leave the Catholic Church because church membership in any church is not required for salvation. When one passes away and stands before Jesus He will not look at the church that one attended in determining who will enter Heaven. He will only look at who had trusted in Him alone for salvation/embraced Him as Lord and Savior.

So, I cringe when I hear Trump do that, but admittedly I cringe more when I hear Pelosi and her liberal friends do that. My only thought is Pelosi confuses no one in the body of Christ, but Trump does. The only time that I have failed to vote was when Sarah Palin was on the ticket because that was wrong and the body of Christ was confused by it. All Christians are conservative, but why so many think that what we refer to as conservative politicians are in the faith always confuses me. I voted for Trump and will do so again, but it would be my wish that he never used the name of our Lord again. If there was someone on this forum or in our social circles who believed and acted like Trump does; no one would accept him as being in the faith. But for some reason many of us give the rich and famous a pass? I donâ€™t pray often for Trumpâ€™s salvation, but I know I need to and will make a point of doing it.
Why are you stating that Trump has not embraced Jesus as his Lord and Savior? Trump has stated that he embraced Jesus as his Lord and Savior. And thus he is saved.

This past Sunday at my Baptist Church the sermon given by Pastor Steve was titled "The Lord Will See To It" from Genesis 22:1-18 about God testing Abraham by telling Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac on Mount Moriah. This past Saturday I went to the Men's Breakfast and Bible Study at my Baptist Church from 8-9:30 AM. The Bible study was given by a retired Pastor from California who relocated to Hastings, Minnesota to be near his Daughter who is a member of my Baptist Church. The Bible study was 1 Timothy Chapter 2. It was very educational.
Not all Catholics. There are some Catholics who have embraced Jesus as their Lord and Savior and trust in Him alone for salvation and thus are saved. I am one of those Catholics who is saved because I embraced Jesus as my Lord and Savior and trust in Him alone for salvation. The Daughter of one of the Deacons at my Baptist Church converted to being Catholic when she married a Catholic and she is still saved because she had embraced Jesus as her Lord and Savior years ago and she trusts in Him alone for salvation.

I am not a make believe Christian. I embraced Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I would not have been permitted by my Baptist Pastor to have been Baptized via immersion at my Baptist Church in May 2017 if he did not believe that I was not truly saved. My children will learn the Evangelical Protestant doctrine of salvation when they are 8 years old by watching the 4 VHS set of Billy Graham Crusades that I own and then they will at sometime after that embrace Jesus as their Lord and Savior and become saved.
Christopher, This past Sunday at my Baptist Church the message was given by the Director Camp Lebanon(a children's camp my Baptist Church sponsors) in Northern Minnesota. The Director of that camp provided information about the camp. This coming Saturday morning at my Baptist Church I will be attending a Men's Breakfast/Bible Study. I am becoming more involved with my Baptist Church.

Also, Al Sharpton stated that the Bible was not the final word. Come out from among them and be ye separate are not my words. And the sheep hear and receive them as the words from God. No wonder the attendance is diminishing. Most people who attend are elderly and sick who cannot understand voices coming from sources other than God. What they hear is only babble. But they stay.
You will have to give an account to God for not voting to get conservative Republicans elected to bring this nation back to its Godly foundation.
When I get married I plan on having 8 children. They will be Baptized via immersion in the Catholic Church, believe every Catholic doctrine, be required to go to Confession once a month after they receive their First Confession, be required to become Altar Servers after they receive their First Holy Communion. They will also when they reach 8 years of age start watching the 4 VHS set of Billy Graham Crusades that I have so they learn the Evangelical Protestant doctrine of salvation.

Graham is not a false prophet. Graham preaches the biblical doctrine of salvation.
Christopher000 wrote: The old reformers, and anyone else, before, or since, had good reason to refer to the Roman religious machine, and its Papacy, etc., as mystery Babylon; the great harlot. We don't believe this because others merely said so, and we follow blindly, but rather, scripture points to it, and describes it pretty clearly, in my opinion. I'm not quite sure how anyone arrives at any other conclusion, unless cherry-picked descriptors are being pulled out to build the case. As a whole, prophetic scripture seems to point straight to Rome. I think anyone who believes that Israel is the great harlot, has to work really, really hard to build that case, and build it with very scant prooftexts. I'm not claiming to know for certain, but what I've studied, just doesn't jive any other way.
This past Sunday at my Baptist Church the sermon given by Pastor Steve was titled "Family Matters" from Ephesians 5:15-21. There was also a child dedication in which the 2 year old daughter of the Associate Pastor was dedicated to Jesus.
