I am telling the world that Anthony is as phony a Christian as a three dollar bill...his "Christian testimony" regards his "salvation" is on the net!!!!!

He copied and pasted it!!!!! Here it is!!!

Are you ready to accept the gift of eternal life that Jesus is offering you right now? Let's review what this commitment involves:

I acknowledge I am a sinner in need of a Savior - this is to repent or turn away from sin

I believe in my heart that God raised Jesus from the dead - this is to trust that Jesus paid the full penalty for my sins

I confess Jesus as my Lord and my God - this is to surrender control of my life to Jesus

I receive Jesus as my Savior forever - this is to accept that God has done for me and in me what He promised

Its on an SBC web site....titled "How to be a Christian"...

I have failed him!!!! I have told him over and over, never tell a lie that can be easily proven a lie...but, evidently, I are not a good teacher...

I don't doubt that you understand the Book of Revelation more so than your Protestant breathern. I think you should give an ear to the Catholic teaching on it. Interpret it like it was meant to be.
I wish I could provide the link on a great presentation from the Catholic perspective I heard. Perhaps tomorrow..
It really is silly how all these different religions popped up as a result of privately interpreting Revelation.
Actually we like to let the bible interpret the bible with a revelation in comprehension from the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Compare the book of Daniel to Revelation.

Yeah Thomas Jefferson tried to rewrite the word of God. That's not any different then his modern breathern applying their own interpretations to what was already taught .
**********
Thomas Jefferson wrote a short version of the New Testament for the Indians. He saw their pagan practices and wanted to give them the gospel without letting them believe that Jesus was just another superstition. He simple held the miracles back until they could understand.
KayMarie
It would be a miracle if you and Thomas Jefferson had understood that people that are raised in other religions believe their own way ... not your way ... and that religion as a whole was and is all based on varieties of human assumptions.

I was referring to Atheist as having fear.
But now that you mentioned it....I would include designer religions such as 'new age spiritual' stuff as well.
Everybody is a Protester against the only Church Christ started, whether you're the original protestants, or the 45,000 that came after- including the modern day gnostics - who mysteriously use some of our scriptures to form their belief system. Its all fear based.
I don't fear religion. Nor do I fear death - in which religions speak of.

In fact, I've accepted my death - whenever or wherever. It will come, and I will be waiting - all the while - enjoying my life as it comes to me with every moment.

Fear is an emotion that is created from within. Something we can control using free will.

Please don't project, it is starting to be very unbecoming of you.

BTW - Why do you think "all" religions are fear based? From a Catholic's POV, I'm presuming you are speaking of "all others", excluding Catholicism, right?

Do you have a citation to back up this claim.

I read of a group of Native Indians that were totally confused by a Catholic priest and a Protestant minister taking turns at teaching the Natives that they were both liars.

The Natives couldn't understand why two men preaching from the same bible would call each other liars.

:)

As we can see from this forum ... nothing has changed.

Read Psalms 132 verse 13....
http://www.theseason.org/psalms/psalms132.htm
This demonstrates where God stated that Mt. Zion is His holy place. CHECKMATE
Have you ever read the verse where it states that God created the earth not in vain but He created it to be inhabited forever?
The world is NOT gonna be destroyed but the age is gonna be destroyed. You guys need to understand a figure of speech when you read it in the Bible good sistah.
I'd like to post ISAIAH 45:18 for your reading pleasure.

The Arrogance of Faith, by Forrest G. Wood

In his study on “the Protestant hope for a Christian America,” Robert T. Handy on New York’s Union Theological Seminary acknowledged the contradiction inherent in the belief in one true faith in a pluralistic and democratic society.“Committed to the principle of religious freedom and to the voluntary method, the leaders of the thrust to make America Christian failed to sense how coersive their efforts appeared to those who did not share their premises.” He wrote in A Christian America (1971.“It was hard for them not to view their opponents as agents of evil, for they were convinced that they were unequivocally on the side of good.”

The Arrogance of Faith, by Forrest G. Wood

Americans tend to think of a colonial period with Puritan oligarchies in New England and state-supported Anglicans in the South, but by the late seventeenth century religious pluralism was the rule rather than the exception in most settlements. To some observers,“Pennsylvania in 1750 was simply a chaos of religious sects,” and in North Carolina an Anglican missionary complained about the “great number of dissenters of all denominations…particularly Anabaptists, Methodists, Quakers, and Presbyterians.” Religious proliferation was so extensive on Long Island, New York, that attempts to count denominations were meaningless because the number changed daily.

The first duty of the monarch of England is..................DEFENDER OF THE FAITH. That statement speaks volumes and gives a great clue as to where the throne of David,which is supposed to be a PERPETUAL THRONE, is today.

maybe they just don't have good communication skills, we all agree their yelling and fighting with doctrine with us did no good to teach them, God's will it's history.

Mount Athos is situated a remote peninsula in northern Greece.

Millions believe to be the most sacred spot on Earth.It is completely dedicated to prayer and worship of God.

Prayers have been offered there every day, with no interruption, for more than a thousand years.
It was set aside by ancient emperors to be the spiritual capital of Orthodox Christianity and has probably changed less over the centuries than any other inhabited place on the planet

Today Athos includes 20 monasteries, 12 skites, and about 700 houses, cells, or hermitages. Over 1,000 monks live there in communities or alone, as well as in the 'desert' of Karoulia where cells cling to the cliff face rising steeply above the sea

Some of the 20 monasteries on Mount Athos look like medieval fortresses, others are so large they resemble small cities. They rise from virgin forests and line the coast, shrouded in mist. There's nothing on this 130-square mile peninsula other than monasteries and monks. Nothing.

The silence is only broken by the occasional tapping on a chiseled piece of chestnut. It is a call to prayer and started being used here before there were bells.

"The monks here have one goal, and that is how they can get closer to God," Father Serapion explained

It's a Spartan way of life, but all the monks we talked to said they never want to leave, not even for a day, so they try to be self sufficient - they grow their own fruit and vegetables, and do their own tailoring.

They eat two meals a day. The "first meal" lasts 10 minutes; the "second meal" also lasts 10 minutes. There's no meat and no dinner table conversation - the only sound is a monk reading from sacred texts

We were surprised by how busy the monks are - when they're not praying, they're working.And when they are working continue praying. When you look at monks, you can see that their lips never stop moving. Not for a second.

Every day at three in the morning a single bell rings, informing the brothers that it's time to stop praying on their own, and start praying in church.

On a typical day - and every day is a typical day - the services last eight hours.

The monks say it's an eight hour conversation with God, a dress rehearsal for eternity. And remember: this doesn't only happen on Sundays - it happens every day, 365 days a year. A monk never gets a day off.

Every monk will tell you the sole purpose of life on Mount Athos is to get closer to Christ every day. And they say total union with Christ is only possible when they leave this world.

"The first thing a monk does is embrace and love death," Father Serapion told Simon. "Because death is the ticket to the other life. And without a ticket, you can't travel."

"Where do you get the ticket?" Simon asked.

"Here, in this life. That's what we do each day, we prepare for death - but with joy. We are joyful about our journey to heaven," he replied.
