Advent series ping.
As always, thank you Salvation, God Bless you.
And an “outstanding” ping for your post. Seriously. As always, thank you, friend.
If Mary or the Saints can "interceed" for us, then Christ's Work on the Cross was obviously left undone, eh? And when Jesus turned to the criminal hanging next to him, on the cross and said, "Today you will be with me in paradise. Your faith has saved you," He was just making it up, right?
Just like John was lying when he said, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that all who believe in Him shall not perish, but have life everlasting."
Save your tortured mumbledygook for those who truly do not "understand," because among those who do, you're spewing contrived silliness.
I was raised Catholic, through First Communion up to my Confirmation. Then I started really reading the Bible, and found that little-to-none of Catholic dogma was contained in Jesus' teachings, quite the contrary. When Jesus was asked how false teachers could be discerned, His reply was, "By their fruits shall you know them."
Any who deny Christ in any way are of the Enemy. Asking anyone but Christ to be your "intercessor" before God the Father is to explicitly deny the Truth of Jesus Christ.
Knock it off. Christmas is coming.
Not sure how this ties into Advent but totally enjoyed the post!
