You don't have to make Christians look bad in order to make Catholicism look good. Or maybe you do.

a strange comment indeed.....

Well I see from your other statements that it appears you still do have that need.

God is patient with you, so I will be too.

The fact that your Catholicism keeps drawing a circle with Biblical Christianity outside of Catholic Christianity causes God to draw a bigger circle encompassing Biblical Christianity and Catholic Christianity.

Any Catholics wishing to take part in Biblical Christianity God welcomes to break through the wall and join His True church.
The church that is made up of EVERY born again person that has a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and lives his/her life with Jesus inside them and them inside Jesus.

And as usual it is your statement--Catholicism is Christianity-- that is strange indeed.

Christianity is what was just explained to you above.

if you care to follow some lesser "denomination" so be it, but whatever it is, it is NOT full Christianity.
There are no second class Christians, you either are a Christian in it's fullness, or you are not.

You may follow your denomination, but Biblical Christianity has not followers of denominations, just followers of Jesus as the Bible commands.

For Catholics to put themselves above Biblical Christians is not from God.

Just because Catholism requires putting your denomination between you and God doesn't mean that Biblical Christianity has to follow that "strange" belief.

there can only be one true Christian Church on Earth
There is and it is explained above. It is NOT Catholicism.

Catholicism CAN be included, it's an individual decision.

Personal relationships with Jesus are just that...and between each individual and Jesus.

All other denominations are indeed Christian, but not FULLY Christian
LOL, there you go again as Reagan would say.

An individual is either fully Christian, or not Christian. Period.

You can't be "kinda" Christian any more than you can be "kinda" preganant. You either are or you are not.

Gosh, Catholics have such a hard time accepting Biblical Christians as complete Christians.

Well God does, His word confirms it.

All other denominations are indeed Christian, but not FULLY Christian. Close doesn't count, they fell away from the true Christian church and became outsiders looking in....not wrong, not evil, just incomplete.
There are literally millions of Biblical Christians that have never had anything to do with the Catholic Church, so to claim that they "fell away" from it is pure foolishness.

Biblical Christians ARE members of the True Christian church and yes...they do look into Catholism, but from a perspective of Jesus looking at a broken system that enslaves to traditons and following a man, the pope, instead of God Incarnate.

You can be set free.

John 8:31-32 "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

36: If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Jesus is standing at the door.
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened." Matthew 7:7-8

**And as usual it is your statement--Catholicism is Christianity-- that is strange indeed.**

Have you ever attended a Catholic Mass?

It is divided into two parts -- the first part, The Liturgy of the Word, centered usually on an Old Testament Reading, a Psalm, and something from one of St. Paul's letters. Then the Gospel -- often with the words of Jesus Christ. Just who do you think Catholicism is centered on? It's Christ!!!!!

Hopefully you will not be repeating this untruth.

The second part is the Litrugy of the Eucharist is completely focused on Jesus Christ. The priest is the alter Christus there for us in place of Christ.
