DEAD to what???
Alive in Christ Jesus....
Dead to sin.

When Christians come to faith in Christ we no longer allow sin to control our lives...we are dead to sin. This does not come from baptism.

How?? by the sacrifice of Christ...repentance and faith.

And to what extant can they, if "we all fall short of God"?
- menaing, we cannot define "God", but for some reason, many gullible people think man can, though limiting "God" in the same token.

Vast majority of catholic women use or have used birth control the church says is sinful.

....
Most Catholic women use birth control banned by church

BOSTON Wed Apr 13, 2011 5:54pm EDT

....(Reuters)- Some 98 percent of sexually active Catholic women have used contraceptive methods banned by the church, research published on Wednesday showed.

A new report from the Guttmacher Institute, the nonprofit sexual health research organization, shows that only 2 percent of Catholic women, even those who regularly attend church, rely on natural family planning.

The latest data shows practices of Catholic women are in line with women of other religious affiliations and adult American women in general.

"In real-life America, contraceptive use and strong religious beliefs are highly compatible," said the report's lead author Rachel Jones.

She said most sexually active women who do not want to become pregnant practice contraception, and most use highly effective methods like sterilization, the pill, or the intrauterine device (IUD).

"This is true for Evangelicals and Mainline Protestants, and it is true for Catholics, despite the Catholic hierarchy's strenuous opposition to contraception," Jones said.

Nearly 70 percent of Catholic women use sterilization, the birth control pill or an IUD, according to the Guttmacher Institute research.

Is this just more EVIDENCE of a church out of touch with its followers?

SIN!

Hank we can debate all day. Bottom line, baptism adds to the sacrifice of Christ at the cross...period.

and you are saying that folks like Abraham are saved differently than Christians today.

right! the story makes no sense.
..... A baby claimed to be the son of God born into a belief system (jewish) that does not believe in sons of God. This baby grows up as the son of God, devoutly practices this non believing sons of God religion, and only a very short time before he dies for being claimed a heretic of his own belief starts an entirely new belief system, leaving all his former fellow believers behind. His NEW religion has no rules and regulations, no formal plan of operation, no people in positions of authority. HUH!
No wonder it took 300 years and Emperor Constantine a sun-worshiping leader huddled with early christian fathers to help create a story about a man who supposedly died 300 years before.
No one word ever mentioned about this God/man during the time he lived, yet the only source of his story written decades after he supposedly died claims he was loved by thousands..........but no one thought him important enough to write about him while he lived.
..........something is wrong!
Christians absolutely refuse to worship the one and only father of the one they consider to be their savior.

Within the theology, if Jehovah is Jesus' father, there IS, nor can there BE, any other GOD!!!

The joke of it all is that Catholics and Protestants believe they can teach all people of the world to be perfected Jews, as is Jehovah ... the one and only god that in turn created EVIL.

It seems that ignorance simply can't go beyond it's self.

Why do you add baptism to the sacrifice of Christ?
We are justified by faith
But it is NOT Faith alone, Chuck.....

From the book “Morgentaler … The doctor who couldn’t turn away … by Eleanor Wright Pelrine, Published 1975 … comes the following ………

The majority of Henry Morgentaler’s patients (over 80 per cent) identify themselves as Roman Catholic, weighing the burden of unplanned, unwanted pregnancy against the dictates of celibate churchmen, and coming to terms with their own consciences.

You know, it’s interesting who protests and who doesn’t. Over 90 percent of the women coming to one of our clinics for abortions are Catholic. They don’t necessarily have more of a problem about what they are doing than others. It seems to be more of a matter of individuals, doesn’t it?”

Or in honesty HD, you don't have diddly squat and are just trying to still mislead others.

This is why I left your organization, I couldn't handle all the continuous lying to people by your followers.

This fact alone shows that your church is anything but "true".

Could the sacrifice of bulls and goats save anyone from their sins in the Old Covenant?

Could John the Baptist baptism save anyone from their sins?

What does the Word of God say....

Hebrews 9:15

15 For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—~~~~~now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.~~~~~

Absolutely ridiculous.The Apostle PETER,was never a Pope,he was a disciple of the Lord Jesus,and was given the rank(if you will) of A p o s t l e,which is as far as the Word is concerned,beyond a Pope (Pontificus Maximus).Such a lie that has been perpetrated through Roman Catholic History.One of those things that will be judged and deleted by Christ Himself. It is astounding how so many Catholics are spell-bound by such a fantasy!

Beware of those who preach how to live comparable to HOLY gods.

They are shysters that try to hide their humanness inside biblical words.

How funny you are when you try to pretend you are not here to lead others to your "SELF's" self-perceived "wisdom."

Do you believe that the god Jehovah was and is Jesus' father??? After all ... that is also part and parcel of the supposedly DIVINE theology.
