Salvation is not obtained by good works, but by living faith in Christ and His finished work. Ephesians 2:8-9, 8 "For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast." The Roman Catholic church teaches people that their salvation depends primarily on themselves, and that it is of works. It puts people under a system of endless rules and obligations. Those under law are not under grace.(Galatians 5:4; Romans 6:14). Unlike the early Christians John wrote to, a Roman Catholic cannot "know" that he "has" eternal life.(1 John 5:12,13).


I Timothy 2:5-6, 5 "For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time." To believe we need priests, saints, Mary or anyone to get to God except Jesus Christ is heresy. It means to disbelieve God's Word and create our own religious system. It is to invite spiritual deception. It takes away from the centrality of Jesus Christ.


God said that beside him there is no other Savior. Isaiah 43:11, "I, I am the LORD, and besides me there is no savior." This certainly tells us Mary is not a Savior, in spite of what popes and priests have taught by word and example for centuries! No wonder many Muslims think that Christians believe that Mary is part of the Trinity. Millions of Roman Catholics treat her as a Savior and as a goddess.(The same spirit that led the Hebrew women into the idolatrous worship of the "Queen of Heaven" is responsible for the Mariology of today's Roman Catholics. Jeremiah 44:17-19)


Mary had other children after Jesus according to the Scriptures (yet only Jesus had a virgin birth). "Is this not the carpenter's son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas? And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?" (Matthew 13:55-56) See also Matthew 12:46-49; Mark 3:31-34; Mark 6:3; Luke 8:19-21; John 7:5; 1 Corinthians 9:5, Jude 1. The prime example was James, the brother of Jesus, became the leader of the church in Jerusalem!(Acts 15:13; compare Acts 12:2 - a different James)


The Bible nowhere teaches that Mary was sinless , as it does concerning Jesus. On the contrary, the Bible says that "All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)


God forbids the bowing down to graven images and pictures in the Ten Commandments!(Exodus 20:4). The Roman Catholic church has tried to change this commandment, but it remains in the Bible for all to read. This is idolatry. This idolatry has brought spiritual blindness upon multitudes.


The Mass taught by the Roman Catholic church is idolatry and blasphemy. To worship something, like a cracker, which is not God is idolatry. To call something which is not God to be God is blasphemy.


Baptism does not make you a Christian. The disciples were first called Christians in Antioch (Acts 11:26). There is no Biblical evidence the disciples were baptized. You need to be a disciple of Jesus before you have Biblical right to call yourself a Christian. Why did Paul say that Christ did not send him to baptize, but to preach the gospel?(1 Corinthians 1:17).


No church on earth can be rightly called our mother. Galatians 4:26, "But the Jerusalem above is free, and she is our mother." Rome was prophesied by John in the Book of Revelation chapter 17, and is described as "The Mother of Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth". Revelation 17:9, "This calls for a mind with wisdom: the seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman is seated;". Rome has seven hills!

QUESTION

ARE YOU ATTEMPTING TO BRING DAVID..(AND THOSE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT) DOWN TO YOUR FILTHY WAY OF THINKING IN ORDER TO CONTINUE A LIFESTYLE OF HOMOSEXUALITY?
WITH OUT FEELING GUILT..

___

EXCERPT FROM STEPHENS SERMON...from the New Testament..

IN
Act_13:22 And when he had removed him,

he raised up unto them David to be their king;

to whom also he gave testimony,...and said,

==> I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart,

which shall fulfill all my will.

___

HOMOSEXUALITY IS A CURSE ...BROUGHT ABOUT BY DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD'S WORD...

Example from God's word...TO PROVE IT...

Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

NOTE LESBIANISM
Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

HOMOSEXUALS
Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

A REPROBATE MIND
Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

LIST OF SINS THAT COME .... AS THE RESULT OF IDOLATRY

Rom 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Rom 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Rom 1:31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH...Eternal separation from God..

Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

You religious folk always get that backwards.
You all pretend that your opinions are the Word of God.
The problem is, they aren't pretending.

Preachers in religion have a huge investment in their own attitudes that they speak truth on behalf of the gods.

you wrote

I can't say about he Moral part..

But

For once you have written something the Bible agrees with...

Jud 1:9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.

Jud 1:10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not:

but

what they know naturally,

-->as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.<--

<quoted text>Interesting. However I tend to let the word of God speak for me.
Don't you see that when you use man-created words called scriptures, as though they came from a god ... you ARE claiming to speak for a god???

When I studied the bible, I never used the scriptures as though a god inspired men to write them ... as I didn't believe that a god DID inspire men to write anything whatsoever.

You have allowed your ego to use words in a bible to in turn try to manipulate others to suit your own "frame" of mind concerning what the words mean to you.

That is what keeps the right-fighters fighting. And that is what caused all the torture and killing.

If you don't stop using those words to harm others, no one can do it for you, and the onus is on you.

Was King James really a homosexual or was this gossip merely an attack by the powers of darkness on him? I'm am sure that given the fact that King James had authorized the word of God to be translated so that the common man could read Gods word, that must have set all the minions of hell against King James to try and destroy him.
Rahab in the scriptures was called a harlot but I doubt that she really was. What she was was an astute business woman and surely some jealous people set out to destroy her because of them being jealous of her success so how can they try and discredit this astute business woman? Call her a harlot.
I missed this.

See my earlier post.

BTW, I copied from Wiki for convenience.

But I will happily provide quality, vetted sources.

You can believe the apologists or deal with reality. It's up to you.

And also BTW, I'm a guy. And I have a date tonight with a beautiful woman, having had a relationship with another beautiful woman end recently.

The canonical gospel writers were not Catholic.
I believe they were Catholic, but whatever they were, they were break-away Jews intent on taking Judaism out of context in the quest to be leaders of a new religion.

That has been the quest of all arrogant leaders of cults in religion.

Christianity is a mess of right-fighters claiming to own the one and only truth, and other religions are the same ... break-aways starting new cults.

Arrogance has no limits.
