This may be one of the more disturbing things I have ever seen. This video is shown to people, and even more frightening, many are likely inspired by it. This guy basically says that the problem with our country is that "everyone can vote", both ignorant know-nothings who only care about themselves(aka people who support abortion, gay marriage, etc), and informed people(aka people who agree with his/the organizations particular views)
and this is all presented in such a way as if it is incontrovertible. as if having an opinion that a woman has a right to choose or that homosexuality is someone's own business means you havent read a book in your life and are just saying that because you only care about your own "selfish interests".
and scariest of all, they actually use the words "Benevolent Dictatorship", where only those who agree with this guy's views are allowed to vote. true freedom. i think im gonna be sick
“It’s amazing for a newbie what you remember.”
What do I remember?
“I’m betting you may even forget you’re a newbie at times.”
“Yeah, you lurked, we all lurked.”
I would just like to point out England, protestant and uber-liberal, Netherlands, protestant and uber-liberal, Sweden, protestant and liberal, Norway, protestant and liberal...
These days, religion seems to have little effect on the politics of any given nation. There are too many atheistic progressive types for religious people to have a big effect.
Get a grip those when Jesus returns He will rule by HIS Word and not the demonic teachings of the Vatican/RCC. Those teachings will burn burn burn!
LOL - like I said...here are a couple of anti-Catholics here who will make hay with whatever they can find.
LOL. Well, you got that half-right. You should have finished the sentence...
The "mantra" of the Protestant reformation was "I will not serve Rome; I will not serve a corrupt institution; I will not serve the monarchy that is the papacy; I will not serve the doctrines of men; I will not serve other men who believe themselves to be an 'alter Christus.'
"I will serve, however, the Triune God alone by the grace of God alone, through His free gift of a new heart of flesh and a mind renewed by the Holy Spirit and a God-given conscience washed clean by the blood of Christ."
"No Bishops; no kings." "No king but Christ."
They became victims of pride; pride in their own flawed thoughts, pride in their rebellion, pride in their power. Pride pride pride...Nothing but pride. And in their pride they've lead thousands astray, right up to the present day.
And the result is the thousands of protestant denominations, such as Baptists, sects such as 'Bible churches', and cults, such as the OPC, that we see today. Continually splintering, rebelling as their original leaders did.
The Reformation returned Christianity to the Bible, and away from the errant doctrines of corrupt men who for centuries had slaughtered anyone who challenged the papacy's imperial bombast.
Rome's sins are legion -- kneeling to a priestcraft made up of deluded "alter Christus;" elevating a simple Jewish girl to "co-redeemer;" praying to dead people as "mediators" when there is only "one mediator between God and men, the man, Christ Jesus;" concocting cruel lies like purgatory which declares that Christ's justification of His sheep was incomplete and lacking, so men have to work to finish Christ's atonement of them; teaching a false baptismal regeneration; believing in a works-based salvation; bowing to a fallen old man in Rome as "the infallible head of the church" when Scripture tells us no man but Christ was infallible and that Christ alone is head of His church on earth.
Actually, the Bible itself shows sola scriptura to be false.
"Many other signs also did Jesus in the sight of His disciples, which are not written in this book. But these are written, that you may believe that Jesus is The Christ, The Son of God: and that believing, you may have life in His Name" John 20:30-31.
"But there are also many other things which Jesus did; which, if they were written every one, the world itself, I think, would not be able to contain the books that should be written" John 21:25.
"Therefore, brethren, stand fast; and hold the traditions which you have learned, whether by word, or by our epistle." 2 Thessalonians 2:14.
"believing in a works-based salvation..."
"Then shall The King say to those on His right hand, Come ye, the blessed of My Father, inherit the reign that hath been prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I did hunger, and ye gave Me to eat; I did thirst, and ye gave Me to drink; I was a stranger, and ye received Me; naked, and ye put around Me; I was infirm, and ye looked after Me; in prison I was, and ye came unto Me." Matthew 25:34-36
"For, the Son of Man is about to come in the glory of His Father, with His messengers, and then He will reward each, according to His work." Matthew 16:27
"And if I should have prophecy and should know all mysteries, and all knowledge, and if I should have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing." 1 Corinthians 13:2 (St Paul).
"kneeling to a priestcraft made up of deluded "alter Christus"
And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, This is My body given for you; do this in remembrance of Me. In the same way, after the supper He took the cup, saying, This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is poured out for you." (Luke 22 19-21)
Many, many people were killed by protestant rulers and brigands. There is little sense in even attempting to attribute 'slaughter' to none but the Catholic empires.
The victimhood meme is an easy out by those who are called on their nastiness.
ummm...no I didn't. Strawman.
A trend I've noticed is that protestants tend to throw around terms like that; "Evil teachings of Rome" "The lies of the Vatican" "Imperial bombast of Rome" "The 'Marydolatry' of Catholicism" etc etc.
However, when the rubber meets the road, they can offer nothing beyond cute little catch-phrases and mantras. Those who want actual proof are left thirsty.
Now you're asking? Aren't you a little late?
And why the need to name call/labeling posters who are PRO WORD and; thus, pointing out deceptive teachings of the Vatican/RCC? What's that about?
Weren't you just saying something about "victimhood?"
