how much [reverance] is being displayed when the rcc insistes that the wine is changed into blood. sorry but it isnt any wonder that the first and only time that I have ever entered into a catholic church, I was grossed out.
NO CHRISTIAN SHOULD EVER FEEL AT HOME IN A CATHOLIC CHURCH.
Ouch. Really? You entered a Catholic Church once and became grossed out! That's called ignorance I think.

You know, I attended a mega church evangelical gathering once. I definitely wasn't grossed out. But I was surprised on a couple things:

1. The attire worn by some of the members. Especially the woman. I know it was warm that day, but showing your stomach and tight shorts didn't seem appropriate to me.

2. While the reading from the Gospel was going on, people were reclined in their chairs and sipping coffee. Some were whispering about things not related to Jesus. Kids were running back and forth.

I was not used to that. I thought it was disrespectful to the word of God. Catholics stand and stay quiet for the Gospel reading.
I don't know what your particular congregation does and by no means am I classifying all of Protestantism this way..

"Roman Catholic church only true church, says Vatican
The Vatican A issued a document Tuesday restating A its belief that the Roman Catholic Church is the only true church of Jesus Christ."
THE BIBLE SAYS...
1Co 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
1Co 13:2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
1Co 13:3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
I stated it as it's a fact.

I find them useful-you, not so much.

The Church doesn't teach that non-Catholics are barred from Heaven. Another useful fact.

See how much fun they can be?

It would seem to me that the path to salvation is really important. You guys may want to get together and figure that one out. Y'all are claiming the Holy Spirit is telling you Our Lords will.
Well, we know by process of elimination, that one of you is spreading the wrong gospel; you're teaching people something that is contrary to what Jesus Christ wants.

nothing in those words indicate a belief in a doctrine of OSAS as you have tried to say that I have posted the likes of that doctrine in the past.
SO I WILL REINTRATE MY WORDS AGAIN TO HELP YOUR FEEBLE AND CARNAL MIND.
IF I STAY SAVED WHEN I DIE, I WILL ENTER INTO HEAVEN, HOWEVER IF MY LIFE IS SIMILIAR TO WHAT YOU LEAD WITH YOUR FILTHY MOUTH, CHANCES ARE POOR AND SLIM AND SLIM JUST LEFT TOWN.
You said (and I quote) "if a person is saved, they will go to heaven" , but now you must struggle to add to your previous statement by adding that a person " must STAY saved".
It seems that you are too stupid to even see that you are changing what you stated in the first place.
So are you NOW trying to tell us that a person who is 'saved by grace' must now somehow maintain thier salvation 'by works'?
Like I said. That was a ridiculous statement coming from you.

Do you believe that one can or cannot lose their salvation?

A person who undergoes a believer's baptism has license to undertake sinful acts as his/her salvation is not a matter of doubt?

The Bingo gathering reads like "fellowship" to me, GIF.

So does going to a bar for a drink with one's friends.

Neither are bad acts.

You, on the other hand, would refuse an overture to attend either event, instead going home to sit by yourself.

What was that about "fellowship" again?

forgot to add, I dont say that a person [must work out their Salvation],

BUT THE BIBLE DOES.LOL

Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence,

[work out your own salvation]

with fear and trembling.

AND SO IT SEEMS THAT YOU ARE "TO SRTUPID" TO KNOW WHAT GOD SAYS AND OBEY HIS WORD.

"stench of all those candles"?

They don't use scented candles.

"Glass tomb"?

I'm calling BS. You've never been in a Catholic Church with a dead guy under glass.

there is NO DIFFERENCE between getting drunk at a bingo catholic "gathering" or wallowing in sin at the local honky tonk getting plastered.

that certainly doesnt qualify in my book as "worshipping" God and bringing "honor" to His Name.

Cut with the fire and brimstone crap. You're not an authority so do not tell me what I believe or who i worship. You're welcomed to ask me what I believe. But do not tell me.
Why do you dodge the sola scriptural mess you're in?
You and Preston are on the same page (I think) what it comes to attaining salvation. Faith+ works?

4gvn and Chuck say you're wrong. OSAS...you cannot lose it.
Why not acknowledge that one team is going against the very will of Jesus Christ and likely will be held accountable for it. You people are supposed to be together in theology. You were born again and the Holy Spirit is leading you to truth.

GIF didn't mention drinking at Bingo, nor did I.

Drinking isn't a sin anyway.

GIF mentioned "fellowship". So did I.

Who said Bingo was a form of worship? No one.
