Pope Francis snubs the Dalai Lama at Nobel Peace Prize event
They are two of the most admired religious leaders in the world but Pope Francis has chosen not to meet the Dalai Lama in Rome this weekend when the Tibetan exile attends a summit of Nobel Peace Prize winners.

The decision reflects an acute diplomatic dilemma for the Pope, at a time when the Vatican is attempting to improve its relations with Beijing and wants to avoid upsetting the Chinese authorities for fear of provoking trouble for the country's Catholic community.

The snub is hardly in keeping with the Argentinean pontiff's enthusiasm for dialogue with other religions, an agenda he has pursued in recent months on trips to Turkey, Albania and the Holy Land. ...

Interesting Christian group, Jim. "Reaching Catholics For Christ" has a good confession of belief, part of which is reproduced below, and which needs to be understood by every believer in these last days.

"The ground of justification ever remains solely the righteousness of Jesus Christ. This righteousness from God is imputed to sinners by faith alone. Faith secures the righteousness of Christ for justification. Good works done in faith, even though prompted by a desire to please God, are never the ground of justification. Neither is faith itself the ground of justification. Salvation is by the grace of God (a free gift) and not through the grace of God (infused power for ethical improvement). Those who are so justified are adopted into the Family of God. They become, as children of God, partakers of the divine nature and of eternal life."

It is this important statement which will always separate the RCC from the true church until the Lord's return.

To state that an unbeliever is demon possessed is a tad bit beyond your perview. Even the scriptures testify against that position. We believe or not according to the eternal decrees of God. Being outside of the covenant of grace is because of our sins and the love of sin. Demons possession not necessary.

An inept "jesus" who needs a co-mediatrix and "priests" dressed in clownish apparel to do his bidding is not the true God and is not worshiped as such.
It is totally false to state the Catholic Church believes in and worships a false jesus. The Apostles and Nicene Creeds state "WE BELIEVE IN ONE LORD JESUS CHRIST THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD", which is the biblical and historical Jesus that the Catholic Church has always believed in and worshiped as God. Luther did not believe the Catholic Church believes in and worships a false jesus because Luther was not insane. Luther believed the Catholic Church worships the biblical and historical Jesus as God.

It's good to see that others are praying for John Yurich. What a praise-fest we should have if the Lord led John out of the RCC through his Spirit speaking in his heart. There is no gainsaying the Lord, nor his work in the heart.

Frank, thanks for sharing about your experiences - always helpful, as the RC organisation is a whole new world.

Thank you, Jim, for the input "...We can merit for ourselves and for others all the graces needed to attain eternal life" (CCC, 2027)."
This would explain why most RCs do not have the assurance of Salvation.I,for one,certainly,would not want my assurance of going to Heaven to be based on anything that I have done or have failed to do.
And,Frank,thank you,as well, for your comment. What you posted
"...We were taught that if someone wanted something from Jesus, then we were to ask His mother because children always obeyed their mothers..."
-is a very common response that I have heard when asking why a catholic prays to Mary.
I'm so glad to hear that you came out of that too. Thanks be to our Lord!
We'll keep praying for John Yurich.

Ah, too true, Frank.
Mike Gendron wrote:
Catholics have eight obligations: 1) baptism; 2) love God and neighbor; 3) obey God’s commandments; 4) receive the sacraments; 5) pray; 6) do good works; 7) preserve God’s friendship until death; and 8) have faith. 2 Catholics "obtain the joy of heaven, as God’s eternal reward for the good works accomplished with the grace of Christ" (CCC, 1821). Catholics are taught, "We can merit for ourselves and for others all the graces needed to attain eternal life" (CCC, 2027).

Well said SC. I remember when I was a child attending the RCC. We were taught that if someone wanted something from Jesus, then we were to ask His mother because children always obeyed their mothers. They truly do worship a different God, the same as the Muslims, et al do.

Their Christ is so weak, that some silly fellow in a robe has to sacrifice Him thousands of time a day to atone for the sins of mankind. When He said "it is finished" He meant that. My Lord and Savior paid for my sins, once and for all time; past, present and future. Otherwise He is like the RCs present Him, inept (your wording and I like it) and dependent on His mother to this day.

Thanks fellow Floridian, James Thomas and sister Dorcas of course.

Well said Mike! I have always used a concept I call Roman/Protestantism to sort of describe just how romanized our evangelical churches have become. But, let me say this; it is very hard for many of us, me included, to not think of our works as salvific or partially salvific in nature. I work because I am saved; not to be saved. The RCC says we are justified because we do certain things and not that we do those things because we are justified. They simply get it backwards.
Right you are Frank....The Cause and effect are reversed.
Who does this benefit when reversed? NOT God.

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus FOR good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
(Ephesians 2:10 ESV)

imho a huge problem with "mother Teresa" is not so much the RRC would make her a "saint" (aka a lesser diety of the RC religion) but that the Evangelical Churches have been doing that, treating her as some kind of idol for years

AND let me be clear here, it is heart breaking that the religion of this woman who did so much physically for the poor and dying, would utterly fail to assure her of righeousness with God (and could never do that with its false gospel, infant sprinkling, a mythical purgatory, eucharists, untold rosaries to the RC Mary their Queen of Heaven, and all) as she grew old and faced her death.

We ought to weep for such people who are being led into hell through the spiritually adulterous and apostate churches they are decieved by and joined to _ but that is what happens when people do not receive a love of the Truth so as to be saved, because only God Himself can do the saving

Francis was right to avoid the Dalai Lama as the Dalai Lama is demon possessed for not worshiping Jesus as God. Anybody who does not worship Jesus as God is demon possessed.
