Catholics don't do this to them. They are free to have their threads about pre-destination, rapture, sola scriptura etc without even a single Catholic screaming about how they are wrong in what they believe. Catholics don't run around damning them to hell or calling their preachers anti-christs for their un-biblical ideas. Yet they always have to come into Catholic/Orthodox discussions to pick fights. Do they actually think they win anyone's hearts with their constant attacks?
So much hatred from people who call themselves christians...
When you're equally hated by the liberals, homosexual activists, abortionists, population controllers, the UN, feminists, agnostics, atheists, communists, etc, as well as the fundamentalists and bible only folks, you know ya' just gotta be doing something right.
Frankly the more they attack, the deeper my faith gets. I makes me realize more than ever we fight alongside Christ, and the forces of anti-Christ are arrayed against His body, the Church.
Wonder why they never stop to contemplate the company they keep in deriding Catholicism?
Surely, the Whore of Babylon would be in league with the liberals, homosexual activists, abortionists, population controllers, the UN, feminists, atheists, communists, etc.
But those folks hate us just as much as these anti-Catholic Jack Chick types here.
Don't they ever stop to look around them at the company they're keeping and question where exactly they stand??? Do they not realize they themselves stand within the Whore of Babylon, alongside all the other little anti-Christs arrayed against Christ?
Do they not realize that true believers are not deceived by their propaganda?
We have 2000 years of the teaching of Christ and proper interpretation of scripture under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and through the authority Christ granted His Church. We don't need their fallible personal interpretation of these various scriptural proof texts taken out of context. We know and understand their true context and their proper interpretation and we don't need the only-500-years-old-protestant-revolt-against-the-authority-Christ-gave-His-church-new-false-gospel-anti-Catholic-bigoted-interpretation.
My apologies for being uncharitable. I know in their own little minds they mean well, and think they are doing god's work. But so do the terrorists, to be blunt.
Time is too short to waste on these folks. The truth has been preached to them on this forum repeatedly. If they continue to refuse it, it is nigh about time to stop casting pearls, and shake the dust off our feet.
Yeah, Satan knows the right address.
And his minions do his bidding wittingly and unwittingly. May God have mercy on them.
