<quoted text>The answer to your questions lies in what Jesus said was the requirement for eternal life with Him, in heaven. What is the requirement, Clay?
Jesus assures us what the requirement is.
Jesus (being Jesus) would also insist that we know who He is so we can make a choice.
Remember, God IS LOVE. Do you know what love is? Well, its not creating a beautiful indigenous child with the sole purpose of sending him to hell because it was not possible for the child to hear about Jesus Christ!!!!!

TWO WORDS --- Reformation America.

Reformation America, love it or leave it.

There are other parts of the America's that were not born of the hated Reformation, but instead of "superior" Roman Catholic ideals.

Why suffer inferior Reformation ideals -- when you can walk your talk and go to any number of countries with rich Romanist traditions?

Long live Truth ... Justice ... America

Can you backslide and lose your salvation???
ABSOLUTELY!!!
To backslide is to go backwards in your spiritual life!
You really said two different things here, losing your salvation compared to going backwards in your spiritual life, many have backslidden as you said but you can't have it both ways.

You really don't know for sure do you Hank?

Some theologians believe that the earth (as we know it) was a recreation.
OR A RESTORATION..
___
THAT BETWEEN THE FIRST AND SECOND VERSES OF GENESIS
Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
THERE COULD HAVE BEEN AN UNTOLD NUMBER OF YEARS...iN WHICH THE ICE AGE
AND CREATURES (that were not made in the image of God existed)
BUT
THIS GOES INTO SUPPOSITION AND PRESUMPTUOUSNESS
ON SUCH... THE ROMAN CATHOLICS BASE THEIR SALVATION...
All I am doing is giving you a theory...
God does tell Adam and Eve to multiply and replenish the earth...
Gen_1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
AS HE TOLD NOAH AFTER THE FLOOD..
Gen_9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
WHEN WE ARRIVE IN HEAVEN ..WE CAN ASK HIM...RIGHT?
THIS IS A BETTER THEORY THAN EVOLUTION...
The bible is no holy book at all,with many fakes.

Two of the main sacraments specifically are said by the Roman Catholic Church to be necessary in order to gain eternal life: baptism and communion. Because of the Roman Catholic Church belief that baptism is required for salvation, Catholics maintain that it is important to baptize infants. But nowhere in Scripture can you find even a single example or command to do so. Some Roman Catholics use Acts 16:33 as a possible example, because it states that the Philippian jailor "and his family" were baptized. But, taking this verse in context, we note two things:
(1) When the jailor asked Paul what he must do to be saved, Paul did NOT say, "Believe on Jesus and be baptized and take communion." Rather, Paul said, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household" (v. 31). Thus, we see that it is faith that is the ingredient necessary for salvation. It was understood that one who believed would be baptized, but baptism was not necessary for salvation. If it were, Paul would have given it more weight in his missionary journeys (1 Corinthians 1:14-18).
(2) We see that the "family" could not have included infants or toddlers, as it states in verse 34 that the jailor had "believed in God with all his household." Infants and toddlers cannot exercise faith in God in such a fashion.
The roman catholic church is the biggest christian concern.

Jesus died aproximately 2000 years ago. God never existed.

God has placed the ability to know about Him (that is, of His existence) within every person.

Turning to communion, the Roman Catholic Church makes it clear that they take John 6:54 literally when Jesus says, "Unless you eat of the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you." The problem is that their belief that Jesus is speaking literally here is not in keeping with the context of the passage in which Jesus repeatedly states the importance of faith in Him and His coming atoning death for their sins (see John 6:29,35,40,47 and consider the whole message of the gospel of John, as stated in John 20:31).
When one examines the remaining sacraments, one finds that the belief that they convey "sanctifying grace" is not in keeping with the context of the rest of the Bible. Yes, all Christians should be baptized, but baptism does not infuse us with grace. Yes, all Christians should partake of the Lord’s Supper, but doing so does not confer sanctifying grace. Yes, we should confess our sins, not to a priest, but rather to God (1 John 1:9). Having a formal training program and formal acceptance into the church is a good thing to do, but it does not convey saving grace. Being approved as a church leader is an honorable thing, but it does not result in grace. Marriage is a wonderful and blessed event in the life of a couple, but it is not the means of how God graces us. Praying for and with a person who is dying is a godly thing to do – but it does not add grace to our account.
All the grace we will ever need is received the moment we trust Jesus, by faith, as Savior (Ephesians 2:8-9). The saving grace that is granted at the moment of genuine faith is the only saving grace God’s Word calls on us to receive. This grace is received by faith, not by observing rituals. So, while the seven sacraments are “good things to do,” when they are understood in a biblical context, the concept of the seven sacraments as “conferring sanctifying grace” is completely unbiblical.
Forget the hole religions all.

Cardinal Martini. A liberal Cardinal?? I wonder if he really died of natural causes?? Loved by Pope Benedict! YA RIGHT!(lol)

His philosophy was just like ours! He must have been reading our posts.

"church is tired" "200 years behind the times" "embrace divorced catholics don't stiff arm them" "sex abuse scandal all buggered up"

Its sad to hear of his passing!

The Church's earliest patristic writers -- of whom Catholics are so proud -- all agreed with a 6000 year old earth.
Selective memory -- with a good forgetfulness gene -- allows Catholics and Nostradamus fans to back up their claims so nicely.
A 6000 year old earth is worth a big lough no more.
