If going 5 mph over the speed limit is a sin then thats about all I have done wrong in the last while.
If you have sin, why not share it with us? You are willing to share it with a stranger in the confessional, why not share it with us, your friends?
So sorry Michael....I don't use a confessional...but you are welcome to use one if you so desire....

If you can’t lose your salvation, why is Satan STILL tempting you today??????????
**********
We don't even have to bring OSAS into the picture for that one. Satan tempts people because IF they fall for it, and do wrong:
(1)They shame God before people.
(2)They hurt others.
(3)They bring pain and/or death upon themselves.

Wrong again.
You just can't admit that there are other ways to achieve salvation, unless it is the way you think.
Your comprehension of other beliefs, understanding their roles in people's lives, and why individuals CHOOSE to believe the way they do, is far more lacking than many, yet your arrogance won;t allow you to admit it.
Move past the words and understand their meanings.
And why happens when you follow a different gospel message.....

Galatians 1:6-7

6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel—

7 which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ.

In which you refuse to believe that you are following a different gospel....

To think you know what it takes to be saved, is arrogant, feeble-minded and dishonest.
No.....

It is called being a disciple of Christ...a follower of Christ......

You are the one being dishonest with yourself....

**This verse has nothing to do with osas and I never said it did. The verse isn't even talking about christians.
Do you know how many times OSAS followers slung that bible verse at me? My heart wants to believe they didn't know it had nothing to do with OSAS. But I'm not so sure. Some of ya don't have a problem with manipulating scripture to win an argument because you think its for the greater good.
The 'greater good' of course would be saving of Catholics from the Catholic Church. Too bad everyone has to lie to accomplish this.

Satan's temptations or attacks.....

Job 2:4-7

4 “Skin for skin!” Satan replied.“A man will give all he has for his own life.

5 But now stretch out your hand and strike his flesh and bones, and he will surely curse you to your face.”

6 The Lord said to Satan,“Very well, then, he is in your hands; but you must spare his life.”

7 So Satan went out from the presence of the Lord and afflicted Job with painful sores from the soles of his feet to the crown of his head.

Job 2:9-10

9 His wife said to him,“Are you still maintaining your integrity? Curse God and die!”

10 He replied,“You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?”

In all this, Job did not sin in what he said.

I agree.
Also the order doesn't have an effectiveness. By that I mean an infant can be baptised, but latter be born again....He does not have to be baptised again in water.(Some feel called to do so, usually as a call to become part of a congregation.)
But its like circumcision. You can only have it done once.
Robert,

Sorry.....this makes no sense...

What is baptism for??? Forgiveness of sins...wash away your sins....

So if you are baptized as an infant...what sins have you committed???? Plus, you MUST CONFESS with YOUR MOUTH...how can an infant do that.....

So as you grow and get older and SIN, what happens with these sins???? You retain them and still in a lost state....outside of Christ.....

And, you are IN NEED to be BAPTIZED for the forgiveness of your sins.....BURIED WITH HIM IN BAPTISM....INTO HIS DEATH, BURIAL, AND RESURRECTION....does an infant have the knowledge of how IMPORTANT this ACTION is????

Common now....

The Bible says.
When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished. If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property.(Exodus 21:20-21 NAB)
Do you concur?
I agree.

I may not understand the morality behind it, but if the Bible is unerring, then I must agree.

Now I just have to rationalize the (supposed) immorality of slavery and why neither Father nor Son spoke out against it.

I can do that.

This is the fourth life our Saviour has given me. First when I was born, second when I was told I had cancer, the third was this last bout, and the fourth, most important life He gave me was a new life in Him.
Its hard to express my gratitude to so many. Please know that I know each of your kindnesses and that they filled my heart.
Please know that the Lord, our God and Saviour is very real. Thank you Son of David for having mercy on me a sinner.May the uthor of Life cotinue to shed His mercy and compassionate bliessinmgs on you all.

What are you talking about? There is no mystery why people are leaving the Church. The Vatican is not in a dilema. And there won't be any turnaround either. At least, not on the Vaticans end. How many times do we have to tell you. The Catholic Church isn't dictated my popular opinion or cultural influence. Protestants are.
America and Europe are walking away from Catholicism (and many other moral structures too) Africa and South America are not.
The Church aint going away no matter what. Your great great grandkids will have come and gone mike, and the Church will still be standing with little or no change from the current doctrine.
The Catholic Church is most certainly dictated my popular opinion or cultural influence.

Admittedly, it does so slowly and with caution.

Over 50,000 "carefully investigated" annulments in the USA alone. That's a 1000% change from just 50 years ago.

Vatican 2 was a huge change. Heck, even Protestants can be saved. That's a 100% change in former stated doctrine (Papal Bulls and Vatican Counsels).

Have the rituals and sacraments remained unchanged? There have certainly been fundamental changes in the Mass. Lay women can now deliver and administer the Eucharist!

You shouldn't fret too much about the changes. But denial is absurd.

You're reading the bible thru the eyes of Protestantism. Read it thru the eyes of the Catholic Church. You will see its not meant to be a word for word literal translation. In fact, it never was like that until some knuckle heads came along and took our Bible and beat us over the head with it. These people are nomads.
The books that make up the Bible are inspired by God (we believe), using human thought with divine insights . The writers used LANGUAGE AND CULTURE from their own time period to paint a picture of God for the reader. Slavery is mentioned at times, simply because people around that time had slaves. The writer mentioned slaves because that was the normal speak.
God chose to let humanity figure out that slavery was wrong. In His eyes, we're all slaves anyway. Slaves to sin.

That's minor changes. The Mass is the same in structure and substance since the first Century, when the Apostles taught it. You'll never see the Church eliminate the Liturgy of the Eucharist because people think its to boring or don't want to kneel. I guarantee you Protestant Churches will take a vote on it.

Now, Clay, look at these verses:

1 Timothy 4:1-3

4 The SPIRIT clearly SAYS that in later times some will <<<ABANDON the FAITH>>> and ~follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.~

2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.

3 They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth.

OSAS is false teachings....

If someone uses a verse of scripture and believes with all their heart it's truth, that is not lying.

I don't think you know the difference.
