Any one that thumbs their noses at....Spurns God's eternal word is foolish.<quoted text>
I'll put my Faith, hope, Salvation and any judgement that Our Lord has for me in HIS HANDS and not in some (anti-catholic) "snake oil" judgmental Protestant preacher like you Confrinting. You do not speak for God and NEVER WILL until you come to TRUE SALVATION in Jesus Christ........ I have heard bible only condemning (hatefilled) ministers like you for over 35 years as a sola scriptura Protestant, until God Our Father, through His Son Jesus, being led by the Holy Spirit, released me from this "bible only BONDAGE" of condemning of other Christians (especially Catholics) and led me to the TRUTH of the TRUE INTERPRETATION of the Bible, along with 2000 years of the TRUTH of TRUE CHURCH HISTORY, manifested (in and through Jesus Christs One True Apostolic Catholic Church.
comparing your 1600 years with the infinity of God's existence and
attempting to write your own plan of salvation is ludicrousness..
which in the end will reap a whirlwind.
Pro_10:25 As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more: but the righteous is an everlasting foundation.
1Co 3:10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon.
But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
1Co 3:11 ==> For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
YOUR FOUNDATION IS BUILT UPON PETER
Gal_6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
Gal_6:8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap
As for believing in your fabled PURGATORY ...
ACCORDING TO JESUS MAN CANNOT BE CLEANSED FROM HIS SIN AFTER HIS DEATH..
HERE YOUR BOWING BEFORE ANYTHING OTHER THAN GOD IS CONDEMNED
Rev 22:8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.
Rev 22:9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
Rev 22:10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
THERE IS NO SECOND CHANCE OF SALVATION.
Rev 22:11 He that is unjust,
let him be unjust still: and
he which is filthy,
let him be filthy still: and
he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and
he that is holy, let him be holy still.
Rev 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
Rev 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
Rev 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
Rev 22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
Rev 22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
This presents another testimony against idolatrous worship of saints and angels.
God calls every one to witness to the declarations here made.
This book, thus kept open, will have effect upon men;
the filthy and unjust will be more so,
but it will confirm, strengthen, and further sanctify those who are upright with God.
Never let us think that a dead or disobedient faith will save us,
for the First and the Last has declared that those alone are blessed who
do his commandments
