All right I will respond here, but no follow-ups.
There is no one on this forum that believes the catholic church worships the same triune God of scripture that Christians worship - NO ONE. You do, so in my mind you are not in the faith. Since I don't consider you to be in the faith, the only time I will normally respond to you is if I think your parroting comments might confuse someone.
In the RCC, there is no salvation outside of the catholic sacraments, so they do indeed worship a different Christ.
Frank, The Catholic Church does not have a different Jesus because the Apostles and Nicene Creeds state "We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of God". Does that sound like a different Jesus? The Jesus I have always believed in has been the biblical and historical Jesus.
It happens for NO OTHER REASON, than the vile evil doctrine of NT pacifism, turn the other cheek, do not resist evil and all such @@#$. In centuries past when real Christians did not accept such evil doctrines, they would have executed such child corruptors on the spot, that is the only reason Christian civilization survived in centuries before ours, because they refused to accept the vile NT commands of pacifism. If the Christians of the past had accepted the vile doctrines of pacifism Christianity as we know it would not even exist today, and would be one of the thousands of other minor cults around the world, which is soon what it will become at this point where all Christians are bowing to the wicked worldwide, thinking it is the will of God, to "show the love of Jesus" and such @#@#$ ways of thinking.
I think you nailed it on the head, Brother Tim, in your original post. You wrote "Franklin Graham is a man who tries to do something for Jesus. Like all of us who try to do something for Jesus, he does it imperfectly, but at least he does SOMETHING."
There are a whole lot of pew sitters and keyboardists who don't measure up to that description of the man. May the Lord turn me to!
And your description of the poster in question is accurate as well. Graham is a impediment on the road to that glorious socialist republic. May we do so well as to also be impediments of sin, through the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
Nor does Al Sharptonâ€™s enormous annual income directly affect me, Mike. While I am no fan of Frank Graham or his dad, I just refuse to let Jiminy Clickit get away with constantly attacking him just because Franklin is a white conservative while giving a free pass to equally wealthy â€śRevsâ€ť like Sharpton and Jesse Jackson just because they happen to be black liberals. I think most of us on this forum can see through Mr. Lincoln like a windowpane.
Civilians who have no skin in this game best educate themselves on how horrible this is and support families and children assaulted by a voyeur who will stare at people of the opposite sex change clothes. Itâ€™s bad enough for rabid sexually being forced on children through government schools now they will be traumatized by the mentally ill to demand deviant actions by compulsion. The board can back down only if people show up in mass. Otherwise, Iâ€™d lawyer up to fight for my child. Your children do not have to participate in deviancy, the government cannot compell them to do so, and if the school board follows through, Iâ€™d file a child abuse charges on the school and board every day, till I got results.
1 Corinthians 5:11-13 But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindlerâ€”not even to eat with such a one. For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? God judges those outside. Purge the evil person from among you.---ESV
I wonder how much flows into Frankie's businesses oops charities when he complains about other people's immortality? I imagine it's quite a . bit.đź‘Ž

Mainstream evangelicals generally expect money they give to be used frugally, Wacker said. Big salaries come with questions.
"Does he live ostentatiously or does he give it away?" Wacker asked.
excerpt from, "Why Franklin Graham's salary raises eyebrows among Christian nonprofits"
I think it is useless to think society in US will change soon to become more like what the Bible instructs us. Speaking of society, I just heard from a secular financial source, speaking of financial planning, that 70 percent of all married women will become widows. Thus, the importance of what James calls in his letter, "real religion" is taking care of widows, and Paul dedicates the fifth chapter of his first letter to Timothy on how they should be treated. Neither of these 2 writers of the New Testament had much to say about changing their Roman society to do things like stop abortion, slavery, etc.
Now, Lighthouse Trails has learned that at the August 15-17 2014 gathering called â€śThree Rivers Festival of Hopeâ€ť in Pittsburgh, PA, Franklin Graham (who led and organized the event) brought in Catholic Bishop David Zubik to give the opening prayer on stage with the large audience. During the bishopâ€™s prayer, he acknowledged his belief that Protestants and Catholics are all part of the same church.
While Grahamâ€™s public stand against homosexual marriage and his work to help the poor and needy is commendable, his giving a thumbs up to Roman Catholicism is moving the church closer and closer to complete apostasy.
â€śThe question we have at Lighthouse Trails is, which Jesus is Franklin Graham sending these people to when he sends them to the Catholic Church for the sacrament? We believe the answer to that is â€śanotherâ€ť Jesus as the Bible warns will happen (2 Corinthians 11:4).â€ť
All of the above are cut and pastes from the link. I would like those who accept Graham and count him in the faith to ask themselves the same question about the pope. The pope also says he is serving Christ. Is he then in the faith? I don't understand the difference?
Franklin Graham is a man who tries to do something for Jesus. Like all of us who try to do something for Jesus, he does it imperfectly, but at least he does SOMETHING. Donald Trump is a man who is trying to do something for America. Heâ€™s not a perfect president because, just like you and me, he is not a perfect human being. But at least he is trying to do something worthwhile. Now there comes a troll who, as far as we know, is doing absolutely nothing for Jesus, but he constantly harps on a man who is at least trying to do something. A troll who has done nothing for America since America had to force him to serve in the militaryâ€”he didnâ€™t love his country enough to volunteerâ€”but he spends hours and hours criticizing a man who is doing all he can to keep America from going down the moral and economic drain created by the liberals. When I was a kid, queers stayed in the closet and trolls hid under bridges. I wish theyâ€™d all go back to where they belong.
