The Winsome Doctrine
Didn't know Protestant was a religion.
How to say this and be nice?
I thought a protestant was some of those religions that broke from the Catholic Church. That's what Sister Erminalda taught us.
Ah, but has the church expelled them! And if not, why not?
I asked my DH to answer your comment, Salvation ...
BUT BUT BUT BBBBUT . . .
Doesn’t the Vatican et al
claim to be the one and only truly true pristine pure sanctified ‘holy’ ‘Apostolic’ etc. etc. etc. church of Jesus The Christ???
How could anyone claiming to be Roman Catholic do anything but march lock-step in concert with the thoughts, wishes, words and genuflections of The Pope???
And if they did, chronically, walk askew . . . certainly the hierarchy of the beloved pristine magicsterical would booth them out after sufficient calls to repentance . . . no doubt, right????
Oh, right, RCINO’s are needed to inflate the statistics.
Well, salvation isn’t dependent on people’s works (Ephesians 2:8,9); but, their works are an indication they don’t have it.
You state this with a certainty that is not warranted. I am not sure where you have gotten your information about the Catholic Church.
Not everything that a Pope says or writes is considered infallable. Only what is stated Ex Cathedra, usually with great specificity, is considered to be infallible by Catholics. Popes can have opinions on many things that are just that, their opinions. The sanctity of all human life is one of the infallible positions, however.
If the bishops really cared about health care and abortion, they would use CCHD funds to buy insurance for the poor. They wouldn’t give one/third of their contributions to community organizing groups that are focused on electing Democrats. I am utterly ashamed of them.
Well in any case, they have expelled themselves from the Church by their actions.
Oh no, my Catholic friends don’t get off the hook that easy! If the Roman Church is indeed the friend and protector of the unborn (as I have no doubt they desire to be) then it’s time for the Bishops, or the Pope himself to start putting their excommunications where their mouths are.
Words are nice, condemnation of sinful actions are all well and good. But 94% of professing Catholic Democrats just supported a bill FAVORING and FUNDING the murder of unborn babies — millions of them. If the heirarchy is SERIOUS, they should IMMEDIATELY issue edicts of excommunication against EVERY ONE of the Congressmen and women who voted for this. Period. Failure to do so can only indicate that the Roman Church talks a good game, but that’s ALL...
Muslims are going to “teach” us a lot of things soon.
No one gets off “easy”, they will certainly pay for their crimes. Their disrespect for Church teaching means they refuse to obey the Magisterial teaching of the Church to their detriment as a matter of free will.
I disagree, works are essential.
In Matt 25:31-46 are many examples of doing good works, proclaimed by Jesus Christ. There is the separation of the sheep from the goats which relate to, the feeding of the hungry, clothing of the naked, visiting the sick and those imprisoned, and more. Notice that both the sheep and the goats believed, but only the sheep did good works. In verse 46, Jesus cautioned as to what will be the reward of those who do not do these things, and of those who do, “And these will go into everlasting punishment, but the just into everlasting life.”
Both faith and works are important. And of course those that sold out for abortion will never escape the justice of God.
FWIW, hypocrisy abounds everywhere, the claim of any of these Rats that they are Christians is a joke.
The promotion of govt funding of abortion is only one sinister development. The other sinister development I see is now the govt claims ownership of you. You are required to buy health insurance whether you want to or not. You do not have the FREEDOM to choose to engage in the commerce of buying an insurance product you are required to.
The inevitable failure of the insurance companies will lead to the govt providing all insurance/care. We will not have the choice to decide if we want something or not. We will not have the choice whether to donate organs or not. We are no longer free.
No one gets off easy, they will certainly pay for their crimes. Their disrespect for Church teaching means they refuse to obey the Magisterial teaching of the Church to their detriment as a matter of free will.
Still they receive the Eucharist? Still they are granted absolution?
Magesterial teaching of the Church aside, I’m glad Christ Jesus can see through their hypocrisy and their attempts to hide their sins behind the robes of the silent clergy.
How can a priest — or Bishop — in good conscience, lay upon the tongues of these serpents the elements of Communion? I confess, I don’t get it.
I have been praying.
Can’t help if you disagree. Ephesians 2:8,9 couldn’t be more clear. For Christians, works are for reward. Not for salvation. For non-Christians, they will indeed be judged by their works. And condemned.
I don’t know either. Bishops especially will answer to God.
Christ clearly condemned the goats for not doing works.
Ephesians talked about the Jewish law. Jesus and the Apostles have told us not just to rely on faith.
“Work as a preacher of the Gospel, fulfill your ministry.” 2Tim 4:5
“Work for upbuilding and not for destruction.” 2Cor 13:10
“Work from the heart as for the Lord, and not for men.” Col 3:23
“Work out your salvation with fear and trembling.” Phil 2:12. See also 1Cor 9:24-27.
“For His workmanship we are, created in Christ Jesus in good works, which GOD has made ready beforehand that we may walk in them.” Eph 2:10
“And if you invoke as Father him who without respect of persons judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves with fear in the time of your sojourning.” 1Pet 1:17
“There are just men and wise men, and their works are in the hand of GOD.” Eccl 9:1
“...who will render to every man according to his works.” Rom 2:6
“But their end will be according to their works.” 2Cor 11:15
“For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.” Rom 2:13
“For GOD shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.” Eccl 12:14
I respect your beliefs as well, but Scripture also tells me to do God’s work on earth too.
