It should be easy to prove the Catholic Church wrong. But you can't.<quoted text>I think there is a very real question. Are there 'conditions' tied to a 'free gift'? Are there conditions to attaining a RELATIONSHIP with Christ?
All forgivness. All power. All payment for our sins is in Christ
Himself. It is all about our 'relationship' with Him..........
What can water do? Can it wash away sins? Can it bring about a relationship? Can it in any way add to the 'finished work' of our atonement that Jesus 'paid in full' on the cross?
In other words....Is Jesus sufficient?
UNLESS. you manipulate scripture to mean opposite of what first Christians understood .
Its easy, your fore fathers from the Revolution did it to brainwash ya. So you carry the torch now to spew anti catholicism.
State your evidence or get out of here.
