Welcome to the world of legalism-the letter of the law with every i dotted and every t crossed:-)<quoted text> HaMashiach Yeshua is considered to be Jesus Christ by this site and in a paper I used to get back in the nineties from messianic Jews.
In this link which has nothing to do with that paper they do not consider it to be pagan.
I don't know enough about it but it seems if anything with the name Jesus is suspect then the bible would have to be included in that wouldn't it? I just visited your site and I see the word Jesus an awful lot, NKJV I believe. I believe being baptized in Jesus name is correct and because of the way it happened with me it would be really hard to convince me it was invalid. I don't know in this state of anyone that invokes the name Yeshua when they baptize. It all depends on whether it is a valid translation I guess. I don't see how Yeshua would be wrong and it may be more correct but the way Christianity is in this world they have taught Jesus as the same and the vast majority would not recognize Yeshua. I seriously doubt if the majority of preachers would know the name. But if God does make it a difference then there are an awful big group of people who thought they were Christians that were not simply because of ignorance. Probably everyone for a 1700 or 1800 year period. I pray that is not the case for my sake and theirs.

Btw, Jews often spell God this way G-d, because they believe God's name is to holy to speak it. My thoughts are that if they will not even speak it correctly why all the fuss over getting right? What applies to God should apply to Jesus. I still smell the foul odor of legalism...

What did Jesus tell those present about their righteousness being greater than that of the Scribes and Pharisees? Certainly not to ignore any commandment of God!;-)
Grace is the only way we can live, but the grace of God is towards those who seek to worship and live in the Spirit and the Truth. No word of God is a lie, and Jesus directly said to live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.
I smell the truth of God as what pleases Him, but we fall far short, which is the beauty and blessing of His grace and Spirit towards the Set-Apart believers.
We should never smell a stench in His words. Hypocrits have a certain stink about them, but not the Truth.

I guess I am prophesying on the future of Protestantism. But using the Sola Scriptura there is no possibility that the mainstream religions can survive. Already the 1 man mega churches have taken away most of the Protestants ability to form an alliance and be a force for good in the secular and political arena. The 1 man Churches will implode to become eventually the Bible and Me. Just look on line and see how each group is claiming the other mega church is wrong. The doctrine of reading the Bible and deciding yourself what it means can only lead to this.
As for as this is the last Pope, I think the Church should have the Council of Cuba to to talk about it. The agenda should consists of Cuban Cigars and the best wine and the Cardinals laughing so hard 3 or 4 might have heart attacks. After the cigars and wine is finished, they should adjourn.
For the first time there are no Protestants on the Supreme Court. There was 2 Catholics, 1 Mormon and 1 pseudo protestant on the Presidential ticket.
Church attendance in Europe in America are down for everybody. Sadly regular Church attendance for Catholics have dropped over the years down to where Protestants have always been around 45%.
Protestants have goen from 70% of America to 48% in a rather fast pace
