Or do we have the False Prophet, leader of the end times Harlot church, sidekick of the upcoming world dictator Anti-Christ?

Stay tuned folks, and watch for a covenant with Israel, the rebuilding of the Jewish temple, a world leader that comes on the scene with promises of peace and safely, and a unified apostate world religion.

Pope calls for all religions to unite:

----------
----------

Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation!

1) We are all sinners and our sin separates us from a Holy God (Romans 3:23, Romans 3:10, Romans 5:12, Isaiah 59:2)

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" Rom 3:23

"But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear." Isa 59:2
----------
2) Sin has consequences, i.e.-Death and Hell (Romans 6:23, Rev 20:15, Revelation 21:8, Luke 12:5)

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Rom 6:23

"And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." Rev 20:15
"But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear Him, which after He hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear Him." Luke 12:5
----------
3) God provided a way for us through Christ Jesus (Romans 5:8, 2 Cor 5:21)

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Rom 5:8

"For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him." 2 Corinthians 5:21
----------
4) Salvation is through FAITH in Jesus Christ alone (Romans 10:9, Eph 2:8-9)

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." Rom 10:9

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast." Eph 2:8-9

Billy Graham Believes Catholic Doctrine of Salvation Without Bible, Gospel, or Name of Christ

by Robert E. Kofahl, Ph.D

Television interview of Billy Graham by Robert Schuller. Part 1, an approximately 7-minute-long broadcast in Southern California on Saturday, May 31, 1997. The following is an exact transcript* of an excerpt close to the end of this broadcast.

Schuller: Tell me, what do you think is the future of Christianity?

Graham: Well, Christianity and being a true believer--you know, I think there's the Body of Christ. This comes from all the Christian groups around the world, outside the Christian groups. I think everybody that loves Christ, or knows Christ, whether they're conscious of it or not, they're members of the Body of Christ. And I don't think that we're going to see a great sweeping revival, that will turn the whole world to Christ at any time. I think James answered that, the Apostle James in the first council in Jerusalem, when he said that God's purpose for this age is to call out a people for His name. And that's what God is doing today, He's calling people out of the world for His name, whether they come from the Muslim world, or the Buddhist world, or the Christian world or the non-believing world, they are members of the Body of Christ because they've been called by God. They may not even know the name of Jesus but they know in their hearts that they need something that they don't have, and they turn to the only light that they have, and I think that they are saved, and that they're going to be with us in heaven.

Schuller: What, what I hear you saying that it's possible for Jesus Christ to come into human hearts and soul and life, even if they've been born in darkness and have never had exposure to the Bible. Is that a correct interpretation of what you're saying?

Graham: Yes, it is, because I believe that. I've met people in various parts of the world in tribal situations, that they have never seen a Bible or heard about a Bible, and never heard of Jesus, but they've believed in their hearts that there was a God, and they've tried to live a life that was quite apart from the surrounding community in which they lived.

Schuller: I'm so thrilled to hear you say this. There's a wideness in God's mercy.

Graham: There is. There definitely is.

Television interview of Dr. Graham by Dr. Schuller continued: Part II was broadcast on Sunday, June 8. The following is an accurate transcription of a segment.*

Schuller: You knew ... Fulton Sheen. You knew these men. Your comments on both of these men [Fulton Sheen and Norman V. Peale].

Graham: The primary way of communicating is to live the life, let people see that you're living what you proclaim....[comments on his friendship and conversations with Fulton Sheen] I lost a very dear friend, and since that time, the whole relationship between me and my work, and you and your work, and the Roman Catholic Church has changed. They open their arms to welcome us and we have the support of the Catholic Church almost everywhere we go. And I think that we must come to the place where we keep our eyes on Jesus Christ, not on what denomination or what church or what group we belong to.

Poor Nettie, spamming the same copy/pastes over and over.

Christians don't worship Billy Graham, or any other man. We only worship Jesus Christ!

Jesus Christ is the ONLY way into Heaven!

John 14:6- Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Boring...more Xtians insulting other Xtians. Same old song and dance...centuries old.

Proty Xtians are the penultimate teachers of hatred towards other Xtians. Its historical. Currently being fueled by many, many American Proty Xtians who are really ratcheting up the hate-speak and relying on the ever weak threat of Living in the End Times...that they have finally figured out...

You Proty American Xtians are like caged animals that will eat their own when they cant find a gay, or a liberal, or a feminist, or whoever else they hate to chew on...

REAL Christians stand firm in the Word of God!

1 Peter 1:25- But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

The Pope calls for all Religions to unite?

So he has a sense of humor...not a bad thing...he knows its futile...but it's all part of politics, offer unity, and fight for tolerance. Its just political speak.

But you stupid death-cult American Protys see prophecy where there is none.

The song is the same, IMO, the dance is different. Many Christians used to kill each other over doctrinal differences. Now the like just impotently hurl insults, since they do not wish to go jail for murder.

God's commands did not stop the murdering, but the worlds laws stopped most of it. Kinda sad actually.

You know where I think some of the hate comes from? American Protys cant stand how much attention the Pope and Vatican get...they want to be the Religious Kardashians.

American Protys are crazed by all the media attention the resignation and new Pope have been getting. All they have going for them is their, "Kill the Gays, and Protect the Fetus's by killing everyone opposed to us!" media attention tricks.

A Pope resigns and new one is elected and the World gets whiplash to look - while the American Protys are left standing there pointing at gays with no one watching for a few weeks.

So they turn their hatred on the RC's and their new Pope...dredging up old insults, and accusations...cause a day without hatred for an American Proty is like a day without fried processed cheese food! Hell on earth!

American Protys gotta hate, they have no reason to live but to hate.

True...but let some American Xtians have their way...and we might be seeing a whole new NFL on Monday Night halftime show...

But I think the insults are not as impotent as you/others would like to think. Xtians still remain the biggest bullies in this culture, and think they have a divine right to be so. They might be restrained in the physical, but they still retain the right to deeply wound people thru their psych-Bully-warfare tactics on those they hate.

Which is why Christ commanded Christians live in peace as much as is within our power. Christians are to interest others in Christ by showing the peace, joy and love we have as His children. To behave contrary to how Christ commanded (ie bullying) is going to drive others away from Christ, not to Him. Christ knew what He was doing when He commanded us to behave a certain way. It is up to us to obey.

No hate here, just love. If I hated you unbelievers, I'd tell you that sin is okay and all ways lead to Heaven.......that's what the perverted fake Christians like to teach/preach. They are children of Satan and want everyone else to follow them to their eternal destiny in the Lake of Fire.

I care about you unbelievers so much that I take your attacks and abuse to share this great salvation that is only found in Christ Jesus!

I love to see souls delivered from sin and Hell!

James 5:20- Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

p.s.- I meant read the ENTIRE Word of God, that's why I linked to Gen 1:1.

You are NOT obeying Jesus by only associating with Christ-hating trolls and twisting the Word of God to fit your play New Age Christianity game. You hate dislike REAL Christians because you get convicted by our posts. But the TRUTH shall set you free!

2 Corinthians 6:14- Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

Ephesians 5:11- And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

<quoted text>Find the scripture where Christians are supposed to live in peace with the devil and his children. Christians are to go on missionary work into the village of you heathens and share the word that you must be born again. Sorry, your definition of bullying is just your definition of disagreement with you.
Why was Jesus crucified? Oh yeah, that called him a bully, a trouble maker, one who claimed parity with God, who who said that he came to causes war, even in your own family.
Do not think that I came to bring peace on Earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I came to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man's enemies will be the members of his household. He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me. He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.(Matthew 10:34–39 NASB)
Parallels in the Gospel of Luke (12:49–53,14:25–33) read:
NASB
49 I have come to cast fire upon the Earth; and how I wish it were already kindled! 50 But I have a baptism* to undergo, and how distressed I am until it is accomplished! 51 Do you suppose that I came to grant peace on earth? I tell you, no, but rather division; 52 for from now on five members in one household will be divided, three against two and two against three. 53 They will be divided, father* against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.(Luke 12:49–53)
ISN'T THE WORD OF GOD GOOD. TRY IT FOR ONCE
Romans 12:17-20

17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.

18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.

Do not be evil to NO MAN. Live peaceable with ALL MEN. Seems pretty clear to me. He was not speaking of just between other Christians. The word of God is great, and I am completely confident He knew exactly what He was doing when He **commands** His children to behave in the manner He did.

You associate with the mud slingers on here far more than I. Read up on my posts a bit more; I rarely ever speak to the divisive. You seem to thrive on bickering with them and exchanging insult for insult. Christ forbids this, but you seem to not be able to resist getting your insults in, sadly you say it is in the name of Christ.

I speak with non-Christans and Christians alike that are respectful most of the time. Those that are not respectful the majority of the time, I do not speak with 99% of the time.

Your posts cannot teach me anything, let alone convict me of anything. You do not obey the Lord, thus you do not love the Lord, so I do my best to not subject myself to your posts. Divisive behaviour is contagious, and I will not allow myself to be infected for any reason. The best course of action for me is to remain distanced from your posts. It is a bit harder on smaller threads, but my scroll ball works wonderfully and it is my responsibility to use it.

God bless you and yours.

You only post nice to the Christ-hating trolls.

I guess you think it's funny when your "friends" mock the Word of God, blaspheme the name of Jesus, attack lie and troll Christians, and act like vile and vulgar trolls?

Yet you want people to believe you are a Christian? YOU are the one who needs Jesus in your life. Your fruit is rotten to the core, so you're not fooling anyone.

What did you say about Doc, who is more of a Christian than you will ever be in this lifetime? Your whole spill and spew is that you are to rebuke Christians that you hate and support the filth that you associate with.
Now, if you read my posts, they are alway true and uplifting. When I tell you that you are going to hell, it i sto lift you up out of hell. Instead, you choose to continue on to hell.
I no longer am able to rebuke Doc. When I did rebuke you, I was under the impression you were a Christian. You are, by your own admission, not within my realm or correcting or rebuking. You have stated it is an insult to be called a follower of Christ. That coupled with your fruit, shows me you are not within the realm of the church. Christ forbids me from judging or correcting non-Christians, thus I no longer can offer correction to you. I do pray for you and wish you only the best in Christ.

However, I will leave it to others with more patience for your shenanigans to lead you any further in your journey toward Christ. I have shared the Good News with you on many occasions, I have and will continue to pray for you. Other than that, I must obey Christ and go back to not reading your posts as they offer nothing profitable to me.

Christ loves you. I hope you had a great weekend!
