Please, there is plenty enough acrimony on these threads as it is.
All in all, there is much less that separates many (most?) Christians from one another, than there is that unites them.
I'm not arguing for unity, just for the sake of unity. I'm talking about the story of mankind, man's separation from God, and how Christ's sacrifice bridges the distance between what we are (and can be like-- wicked indeed!) and the Holy Creator.
Think on those things, and the goodness of God, even as we appear to be entering into times that try men's souls... I'm asking not only you, but others too, (Catholics included) to refrain from taking the low road, refrain from cartoon characterization and dehumanization.
The days are getting short. If not for all of us, all of the world all together (a possible second coming, not too far distant?) then at least for each of us individually, and separately.
We will all stand and be made to account for our words, eventually.
There is unity in belief of THAT, isn't there?
My apologies to you, for you being one that I've chosen to react towards in this fashion. It's not just you who arguably could found at fault, but a great many others also, from either perspective, here on this forum. I'm not pretending to be completely innocent of such evil, idle talk myself. But I'm convicted that I personally need to repent of doing so, myself. If you could help me in this, I would appreciate it.
Face it FRiend, catholics worship an ashta proxy in “Mary,” not the one true God, along with a pantheon of other humans and icons that they call “saints.” All of the attributes that they claim for “mary” are the ancient attributes of Ashta (or Ishtar, Astarte, Isis)
If you feel any oneness with that mess, go for it, but I do not.
We would rather stand before God having pointed out error than to not have done anything. The go along to get along will one day lead to a one world religion spoken of in Revelation.
