I meant like Catholic posts that try to explain why other denominations aren’t true because it is the only true church. Very much a turn off.

You were saying ...

I understand ... :-) ... and it can work both ways, too. I mean, if one says that they've got the "only way" -- then they better be prepared to defend it and defend it vigorously, because if they're wrong, they're gonna get hammered bigtime.

And that goes for Christianity (per the Gospel and exactly according to what the Word of God says). Christianity will have to stand and defend its position in what the Bible says, in regards to the Messiah of Israel, being the only way to God and not through any man or any institution and any organization and/or any group -- being the one and only true way.

And so, if some "organization" comes up and tries to say (in place of what God says in the Bible) that "this organization" is the only way to God and without going through it (and its own teachings) that you can't be saved -- then they better be ready for a lot of flack over that one -- because that's not what God says in His Word ... :-)

This idea, which says, we should not criticize (when others are wrong) and we should "play nice" (when others are sending people straight to hell by their false teachings) -- is garbage -- and that's all that is being "promoted" here ... by some saying to "play nice" ...

It's lame and it's ridiculous. I just say "tell it like it is" and when some other group is teaching false doctrines, then make sure you are clear that they are teaching "doctrines of demons" and are sending people "straight to hell" and not to God.

That's all I'm saying ... :-) ...

Just curious. Are you offended because we believe that the Catholic Church was founded by Jesus Christ and contains the teachings that Christ gave to the apostles?

Are you offended that we affirm that belief publicly?

Or are you offended when somebody is "in your face" about it?
