Sounds like he should rate up there with some others leading folks astray.
Reasonable suggestion, to me.
Thank you for posting this!
Even Martin Luther got this one right
[She is the] highest woman and the noblest gem in Christianity after Christ . . . She is nobility, wisdom, and holiness personified. We can never honor her enough. Still honor and praise must be given to her in such a way as to injure neither Christ nor the Scriptures.- Martin Luther -Sermon, Christmas, 1531)
It’s kind of mildly fascinating . . .
after all the grand invitation to reason . . .
instead of dealing with my points.
we have the compulsive, chronic, knee-jerk reflex pseudo-’response’
KILL THE MESSENGER AT ALL COSTS.
Of course . . . that pseudo-response is
sooooooooooooooooooo full of
. . .
Aren’t all the gloom and doom predictions long overdue? If it’s a prophecy let’s get it over with already
As God wills.
I'm shocked that Calvinists even speak of Judgment Day, I thought in Calvin's Cosmic Lottery one was either among the elect or they weren't.
All men will be judged at Judgment Day. But all Bible-believing Christians know and are grateful for the fact that they will not be judged by their own righteousness, but by Christ's righteousness within them, freely given by God to His own.
Men are saved by unearned mercy, and not debt. By Christ's obedience. By Christ's sacrifice. By Christ's righteousness. By Christ's good work on the cross. All mercifully imputed to the believer.
Like modern-say spy movies, the foul and dangerous lie has an acronym: TULIP.
lol. Funny you equate spy movies with TULIP. Ian Fleming and James Bond were both Scottish Calvinists. They both knew right from wrong, by the grace of God alone.
Thus, the counter Reformation which continues to this day.
I’m in no great rush to race to Armageddon.
At this stage, that is.
Once things get really nasty, yeah, hurry it up.
Evidently God is planning to do just that.
The END TIMES are unfolding on HIS schedule, not ours.
I will repeat this for the third and final time:
The Blessed Mother is not YOUR mother.
It seems that you agree with me on this, so I don't know why you want to debate it.
All men will be judged at Judgment Day.
So much for Calvin's Cosmic Lottery.
Funny you equate spy movies with TULIP.
No, I equate acronyms for evil with TULIP.
Ian Fleming and James Bond were both Scottish Calvinists.
Galations 4: 4”But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a WOMAN, Born UNDER LAW, 5to redeem those under law, that we MIGHT receive the full rights of sons.” Gee! He does have to obey the Law ! Could he not be the SINLESS LAMB! The commandments are the law! LUKE 17 7”It is easier for heaven and earth to disappear than for the least stroke of a pen to drop out of the Law.” SO HONOR YOUR MOTHER AND FATHER ARE STILL THERE. CHRIST IS SHOWING WE ARE ALL FAMILY who believe. HELLLLOOO! I GUESS HIS MOTHER IN THE HEAVENLY KITCHEN DOING THE DISHES AND THEN HAS TO TAKE OUT THE GARBAGE FOR THE CURB. STILLIING SWIMMING THE TIBER!!
What is THE SONG OF SONGS?
LOL. It wasn't written for Mother's Day.
This gets creepier as RC theories are exposed...
From that old standby, Wikipedia...
The protagonists of the Song of Songs are a woman (identified in one verse as "the Shulamite") and a man, and the poem suggests movement from courtship to consummation...
Are RC apologists "courting and consummating" with Mary?
Creepier and creepier. Rome's worship of idols appears to know no bounds.
If the antis keep up their howling and baying, I'm going to consecrate myself to Mary. Seems increasingly like the only reasonable response.
why didn’t marshmallow make this type of thread a caucus thread? You know the born agains would chime in.
Maybe because it was markomalley who posted it?
I don’t know why the non-Catholics even care. Okay, that’s not quite true, they HATE the mother of God and, as hard as it is to believe, they probably hate her more than they hate the Church.
It took 19 years to completely wash their erroneous beliefs out of my mind, and during that almost 2 decade struggle, their errors which I had internalized kept me from picking up St. Louis de Montfort.
I finally started reading him last month, and started the 30 day consecration on his feast day, April 28.
I'm finally at peace. The last vestiges of these protestant heresies have finally been exorcised from my intellect, and there are no facets of the True Faith about which I hold any reserves whatsoever.
St. Louis de Montfort's writings are integral to surviving the Last Days with the True Faith intact.
No, as a matter of fact, they're not showing much sign of believing that.
For the following reasons;
1) Determined trolls, have in recent memory, re-posted caucus threads without the "caucus" label and discussed the issue anyway.
2) The naysaying ultimately works to our advantage. On any given day, throwing mud at the Catholic Church can impress the gullible but when it is repeated daily over a prolonged period, the negativity, bitterness and obsession becomes difficult to hide and is a major turn off for the neutrals. A spoon full of honey attracts more flies than a barrel full of vinegar, as St. Francis de Sales once said. Let them run their mouths. They're harming themselves principally.
3) We ought to be adult enough to handle it. As Catholics, we need to be able to engage the flamethrowers and flak-originators head on and counter their lies, distortions, half-truths and kooky ideas.
4) It's good for us. A little pain is good for the soul.
5) Shutting out the incorrigible naysayers only invigorates them and makes them more rabid in the long run. It heightens their urge to attack and fuels their already deranged "Catholic conspiracy" theories.
Creeper ? Its in the Bible.
