When I went to catechism class, there was no salvation for Protestants.

Heck - the Pope had to make a special rule for JFK, so he could attend Protestant churches even if just for ceremonial or political purposes.

Yep, not so long ago, Prots were next to the devil and the Jews killed Jesus.

who="Pad" I am convinced more than ever that persecution is the only thing that will separate the sheep from the goats. If those believers in prisons,and labor camps in various countries hostile to Christ,believed that it does not matter what you believe in the way of religion,if you are good and believe you can have Christ,even if you never know or hear His Name,than why suffer in prison or a re-education camp?
Buddhists in Myanmar are persecuting the Karen Christians,what is the point of being persecuted for Christ,if in fact those Buddhists do not really need to hear the Gospel?
If what Billy Graham said in the interview with Robert Schuller is true,than all those believers who languish in prisons and labor camps for preaching Christ,are wasting their time.Besides it is not our role on this earth to declare who is saved and who is not,but to present the Gospel of Christ,which shows men how to be saved.
I cannot even judge Billy Graham here,and his words will have to be judged by God alone.Only God our Father is JUDGE,and we cannot condemn any man or woman.
The Gospel declares that Jesus Christ died for all human beings,and that they should be given the opportunity to receive Him by faith,but they need to repent and be baptized for the remission of sins.The challenge for all human beings is to take the risk and follow Christ,in order to find out about His salvation.Unless people do such,they will die in their sins.

**********

Great word, Pad. Persecution can separate the sheep from the goats...and it is on its way. Our nation is quickly falling into the state in which persecution will turn fatal. So-called 'believer's are at each other's throats, and only persecution can reveal 'the real church'.

No, it is not for us to judge others. Paul said that he didn't even judge himself. After all:'above all things, man's heart is deceitful, and desperately wicked. Who can know it?'(God alone.)

Just to help you along in cognito. YOu can bid on nuns habits on Ebay. There are also priests attire for sale. Check the sizes.
After you write your book "Nuns Like Me"....you could write a second book for those that always wonder about nuns sexuality and call your book .........."Become a nun and get none"
You could hang around a few of the Hallmark stores in disguise as a nun, to see who is working hard and who is not. Undercover BOSS!
Let me know how you make out.
ps ......where are you going to get commercial size rosary beads that the nuns have attached to their attire? I think they might be a COPO order. Central office Production order.
very helpful. Now we will both be under fire. Can a share your rations in the foxhole?

Its engrained into them from childbirth. I was indoctrinated into catholicism. My parents spoke the same way, that if you weren't a christian you were not worthy of anything and it you were a protestant you were way down the line of righteousness below catholicism.
"My parents spoke the same way"""...and you are the way you are. You should be in Ohio to see the shock look on my face.

You know what normal people tell children???

"We are sinners and our sin separates us from God. But the great news is He sent His Son into this world to died on a cross for our sins that we may have eternal life. Do you want to receive Him by faith today"...or something along those lines. Show them what God really is....a loving Father.

Isa 53:4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

Isa 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Isa 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Isa 53:7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

Isa 53:8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

Isa 53:9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.

Isa 53:10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

shall be satisfied:

by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many;

KING: Satan. Does he love Satan?

When I use to go to church I use to watch the devout catholics all look down their long noses at those that came at only christmas and easter. The self righteous.(lol)

Just read some of the posts on here by the catholics. They are way up here and everyone else is way down there.

When the bishops of america state that only 1 in every 4 catholics today attends mandatory sunday mass weekly, its obvious the catholic church is in deep do do.

Imagine a large corporation like the FORD MOTOR COMPANY and only 25% of the workers came to work when required?

People wonder why organized religion in the west is on the fast slide.

Most people don't give a shite anymore. I can't blame them. Right?.......right on!

This Morning's Meditation
C. H. Spurgeon

----------

"They go from strength to strength."—Psalm 84:7.
HEY go from strength to strength. There are various renderings of these words, but all of them contain the idea of progress.
Our own good translation of the authorized version is enough for us this morning. "They go from strength to strength." That is, they grow stronger and stronger. Usually, if we are walking, we go from strength to weakness; we start fresh and in good order for our journey, but by-and-by the road is rough, and the sun is hot, we sit down by the wayside, and then again painfully pursue our weary way. But the Christian pilgrim having obtained fresh supplies of grace, is as vigorous after years of toilsome travel and struggle as when he first set out. He may not be quite so elate and buoyant, nor perhaps quite so hot and hasty in his zeal as he once was, but he is much stronger in all that constitutes real power, and travels, if more slowly, far more surely. Some gray-haired veterans have been as firm in their grasp of truth, and as zealous in diffusing it, as they were in their younger days; but, alas, it must be confessed it is often otherwise, for the love of many waxes cold and iniquity abounds, but this is their own sin and not the fault of the promise which still holds good: "The youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint." Fretful spirits sit down and trouble themselves about the future. "Alas!" say they, "we go from affliction to affliction." Very true, O thou of little faith, but then thou goest from strength to strength also. Thou shalt never find a bundle of affliction which has not bound up in the midst of it sufficient grace. God will give the strength of ripe manhood with the burden allotted to full-grown shoulders.

God loves all that He created,remember,"He created .........and saw that it was good." He created Lucifer,the Top Angel of praise and worship,Lucifer's body was like instruments. Lucifer made the choice to rebel,and in doing so he committed the greatest sin against his Creator,the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit.There is no salvation for Satan and his fallen angels(demons).So Graham is not wrong for saying what he did to Larry King.Besides are we to read into the emotions of God anyway? He creates,but He also allows destruction to come to what He created.
