Jim Lincoln wrote: Luke 12 16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: 17 and he reasoned within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have not where to bestow my fruits? 18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my grain and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, be merry. 20 But God said unto him, Thou foolish one, this night is thy soul required of thee; and the things which thou hast prepared, whose shall they be? 21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God. Tony Snow had time to decide where to lay up his treasure, let's hope that he made the right decision.
I don't know if you were cognizant of the fact that Snow was Catholic? But seeing as you are so Anti-Catholic I am surprised that you do not think that Snow is in Hell instead of Heaven. Your comments in the past have been that you believe that no Catholic will go to Heaven even if they receive Jesus as their Savior on their death bed because they did not leave the Catholic Church before they passed away.
Well I think that Benedict XVI is totally off of his rocker to state that Protestant Churches are not True Churches. I consider any church that acknowledges the Deity Of Christ and the Holy Trinity to be a True Church.
I plan on voting for MCCAIN instead of OBAMA and thus this will be the first time that I have voted Republican. The reason that I am not voting Democrat for president this year is that OBAMA is way to extreme.

That is just the first stage of my Muslim engagement and evangelism strategy. On discussion forums I tell Muslims that unless they embrace and receive Jesus as their Savior that they will be spending eternity in Hell.
enough already wrote: GG, Why do you keep on insisting your sin-riddled 'church' is that of Christ's? Do you think Christ is the head over a denomination which tolerates sodomy & idolatry, just to mention a few?
Where do you come up with this nonsense that the RCC tolerates sodomy? The official RCC teaching is that sodomy is a sin.
R. K. Borill wrote: First, the question must be asked, "Which Jesus does Burke believe in?" If he does not believe in the Jesus of scripture, if he does not have the doctrine of Christ, then he does not have God. (2 Jn. 9) Therefore, because this Burke bows before the one who calls himself Christ's Vicar, who exalts himself and all that is called God, he is in communion with Antichrist who opposes God. And for that matter, since you defend Antichrist, you are also in communion with him, and while you think you do God service, you actually oppose him and are under the wrath of God. If you loved Jesus Christ, you would believe his word. But you neither know him, nor the one who sent him.
You know what is with you and the other lousy Fundamentalist Protestants on here? Why do you guys keep on stating that the RCC and RC's do not believe in the biblical and historical Jesus? Burke and all other RC's believe in the biblical and historical Jesus because the Apostles and Nicene Creeds state "WE BELIEVE IN ONE LORD JESUS CHRIST THE ONLY SON OF GOD".
R. K. Borill wrote: Your comment reveals that you have abandoned him too, because you believe in "another Jesus" - one which is not the Word.
What is with you and the other lousy Evangelical/Fundamentalist Protestants on here who keep stating the same nonsense over and over again that the RCC believes in "another Jesus"? The Apostles and Nicene Creeds which are the Statements Of Faith of the RCC states "WE BELIEVE IN ONE LORD JESUS CHRIST, THE ONLY SON OF GOD". Now, that is the biblical and historical Jesus that the RCC believes in.
Dr. Phil wrote: John, You have answered you own question "since when is the Pope against Christ?". Also, since you defend the Pope, have you really dispensed with uscriptural doctrines and unscriptural "parts" of the Mass? 2 Jn. 9
How can the Pope be against Christ if the Pope does not preach against Christ? And I have dispensed with the unscriptural doctrines and unscriptural parts to the Mass because: (1)I do not pray to the Virgin Mary and the Saints. (2)I do not believe in Purgatory. (3)I do not believe that the Sacraments have anything to do with salvation. (4)I do not believe in Individual Confession. (5)I do not believe that the Mass is a sacrifice. (7)I do not believe that Baptism remits sins. (8)I do not believe in the intercession of the Virgin Mary and the Saints. (9)I do not believe that the bread and wine are the actual Body and Blood Of Christ.
Biblical Doctrine wrote: John The truth is that you can't serve the (papal) antichrist and Christ at the same time. God teaches 9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. AND 10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: AND 11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. So the true Christian must standfast for God and His Son Jesus - rejecting all cults and heresy. That is Witness IN Truth. Remember John; Bible commands 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: FROM SUCH TURN AWAY.
It is totally false that the Pope is the ANTICHRIST. No Pope or anybody else has ever been the one and only ANTICHRIST. There will only be one ANTICHRIST. There are many antichrists. And the Pope is not an antichrist because the antichrist means against Christ. And since when is the Pope against Christ? And I am not serving the Pope because I have dispensed with the unscriptural doctrines and unscriptural parts to the Mass.
Mic wrote: Bush is a born-again Christian. God does not sway with the wind when He saves someone. Bush is saved. Bush will not become a Catholic.
What would be the problem with Bush becoming Catholic even if Bush is a Born Again Christian? If Bush became a Catholic all he would have to do would be to dispense with the unscriptural Catholic doctrines, adhere only to the scriptural Catholic doctrines, dispense with and do not participate in the unscriptural parts to the Mass and only adhere to and participate in the scriptural parts to the Mass. That is just what I do and I am a Born Again Christian. Just because someone who is a Catholic does not mean that they can not be a Born Again Christian. There are Born Again Christians in the Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodox Church and Mainline Protestant Churches. Born Again Christians are not just in Evangelical/Fundamentalist Protestant Churches. When everybody stands before Jesus after they pass away He will not require for entrance into Heaven that everybody had belonged to some type of Evangelical/Fundamentalist Protestant Church because church membership is totally superfluous to salvation. Jesus will only require that everybody had received Him as their Savior.

I am a Pro Life Democrat but I will not be voting for OBAMA but instead will be voting for Republican and thus for MCCAIN because OBAMA is to extreme.

Speaking of the Shroud Of Turin. I have never believed that the Shroud Of Turin is the burial cloth of Jesus.

In the article about Lincoln there was an error. It stated that John Wilkes Booth was Catholic. That is patently false. Booth was Baptized and Confirmed in the Episcopal Church.
PILUT wrote: What's bad is, his recanting of his statements is probably a lie. He still believes that Rome is the whore of Babylon, but is "to entangled with the affairs of this life" to stand strong.
Hagee does not believe that the RCC is the Whore Of Babylon mentioned in the Book Of Revelation. On his web site Hagee mentions that he does not believe that the RCC is the Whore Of Babylon mentioned in the Book Of Revelation but is individuals from all denominations who have gone into apostasy. Also Hagee mentions that for over 10 years he sponsored a convent and its nuns and that when those nuns retired he had a celebration at his church celebrating as he stated "those nuns lifelong service to God".

Why do you and the other Fundamentalist Protestants on here believe that there are three requirement for salvation: (1)Receive Christ as Savior (2)Leave the Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodox Church and Mainline Protestant Churches (3)Join a Fundamentalist Protestant Church?
If you and the other Fundamentalist Protestants do not believe that membership in a Fundamentalist Protestant Church is required for salvation then you guys would not keep stating that when someone becomes Born Again that they have to leave the Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodox Church and Mainline Protestant Churches and join a Fundamentalist Protestant Church.
savedbygrace wrote: R.K.Borill, Amen! John Yurich, I don't know where you have obtained your definition of a cult but you happen to leave out the most distinguishing feature. The Roman cult has a hierarchical cult-belief system. By agreeing to not attempt to privately interpret Holy Scripture a Roman adherent has his mind controlled by the Magisterium. The cult-belief system is perpetrated throughout the organization by a special group and their writings(encyclicals, councils, etc.)are authoritative that must be accepted. Adherents are held in check by the fear of excommunication and the venture of hell awaiting as they are brainwashed into believing that salvation is only through the false church and its doctrines. Similar to other cults(ie., Jehovah Witnesses-The Watchtower; Mormons-The Pearl of Great Price) not only is private interpretation forbidden but the use of extra-Biblical books is outstanding. JOHN 3:36
I got my definition of a Cult from the late Presbyterian minister D. James Kennedy. Not all Born Again Christians are off of their rockers like you guys are on here for believing that the RCC is a Cult. My Born Again Non Denominational brother does not believe that the RCC is a Cult.
