Hi Brian, sorry you were offended.But, I must warn you this thread is quite mild compared to what can take place, it can get down right ugly at times and then the thread will be closed. All and all, most who post on here are a fine group of folk who love the Lord and His people. Welcome aboard.š
Concerning yāalls favorite theologians and their writingsā¦āYou could compile the worst book in the world entirely out of selected passages from the best writers in the worldā. HerbalMama- Strawman argument, mam.š¤·āāļø
No,Kimberly Guilfoyle, there are actually real Christians who could care less that your idols are being trashed. As for the politicians trashing one another, actually couldnāt care less about that either.š“
Thanks, Mike. I sure try not to give offense to my brothers and sisters in Christ. To my shame I donāt always succeed.š¤¦š¼āāļø. Trust all is well with your wife and her eye issue. Have a blessed weekend.
Mike, I have a 90 year old Dad who was saved about a year ago from RC. When he reads these ecumenical articles or sees them on YouTube, he thinks that Romanism is just another branch of Christianity and they just have a few things that are wrong, and he gets confused.I spend a lot of time taking him to the Bible and showing him that they have the whole foundation wrong, and are not a Christian denomination, but an antichrist religion that has deceived many. When I read these articles on SA and see that others find nothing wrong with a catholic telling others to fast and pray to some god, which is not the God of the Bible...well itās unbiblical and unbelievable. Sorry if you are offended, but that is my stance on Romanism and ecumenism.
Sister ladybug, as one who came out of that cult, I am very passionate about not giving any credence to the religion of the papacy, even if some right things might be spoken. As with all false gospels and their propagators of them they always contain some truth. 2 Corinthians 11:3-4. Quite telling lhow some want to find āthe greater goodā in this article.
Btw- the antichrist religion is so gleeful when untaught hirelings jump in with their ministers of satan and follow and give credence to their doctrines of devils, and get all cozy and fuzzy and speak so lovingly on social media of one another and their āshared faithā. Abominable!
Hi Mike, friendly answer.š. We both know that an rc prays to the queen of heaven, their mediator, who will coerce her son a helpless god who still hangs on a cross and has to be sacrificed daily for their sins. Not my God or Savior.
You can bet that the catholic gov, will be sprinkling his āprayersā with plenty of hail maryās to the god that they truly trust and worship. Donāt be fooled like most of the ecumenistās who are going to join him in this religious farce. Spot on, sister ladybug.
Wearing a cloth mask in hopes of not catching or transmitting this ādreadedā virus is about as helpful as putting up a chain link fence to keep out mosquitoes. Mandated mask wearing today...forced vaccinations next.ā ļø
Sister lb- meant to say religious quotes out of J.I. Packers own lips, concerning his mish mash theology and his established ecumenical ties with the papacy.He was ignorant of Godās gospel of free and sovereign grace, instead he aligned himself with the religion of the evil one. Hope that clarifies a little better.š As for me, Iām ā Time to shake the dust off, from this thread.

The holiness of the believer is Christ's holiness, 'be ye holy for I am holy' better rendered in the interlinear, 'holy you shall be because holy I am'. To insist a sinner be holy is ludicrous, God requires sinless perfection, no sinner can meet that requirement. 'oh wretched man that I am, who will deliver me from the body of this death?!?'Christ and Christ alone! "If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." There must be justice for sin, Christ's shed blood, His death is that justice, but only for the elect, that's the righteousness of God
Well sister, I appreciate the religious quotes that you posted up concerning J.I. Packers mish mash theology. It has been established out of his own mouth that he was an ecumenical churchman...time to shake the dust off.

Thanks sister,I know all about his doctrine and would never listen to or recommend his teaching concerning the Gospel. But on matters of murder of the preborn and governmental issues he is worth a listen.
