Romans 7:9
9 Once I was alive apart from the law; but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life and I died.
Did the Law of Moses (Old Covenant) save anyone, Chuck???
NO!!!!!!!!!!
The Apostle Paul in Romans Chapter 5 (I believe) has revealed that the Law of Moses does not save, as it did not justify, and did not provide the forgiveness of sins.
The Law of Moses EXPOSED sin and DEFINED what sin was.
Abraham, Moses, David, Samuel, Joshua, the list goes on and on..

Atheism and agnosticism may be very much alive in the physical sense,and a psychological way,but it wreaks with the smell of death,a s it goes no farther than the grave.Faith has been proven and tried over the centuries,we have far more martyrs than you without faith,and through every adversity we have kept our faith,and faced torture and death with resilience and a lasting HOPE!Even in the present false religions and Communism are trying to destroy faith,and to humiliate the people of God with many persecutions,yet they continue through those trials to maintain and spread the faith that sustains them!
You delusional world of unbelief will be tested severly some day,what will be your comfort when that happens?

THE DAY IS AT HAND...

Luk 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

~~~~~~~

Redemption Draweth Nigh

Years of time have come and gone
Since I first heard it told,
How Jesus would come again someday.
If back then it seemed so real,
Then I just can’t help but feel
How much closer his coming is today.

Chorus:
Signs of the times are everywhere.
There’s a brand new feeling in the air.
Keep your eyes upon the eastern sky,
Life up your heads, redemption draweth nigh!

2.
Wars and strife on every hand
And violence fills our land,
Still some people doubt he’ll come again.
But the Word of God is true,
He’ll redeem his chosen few.
Don’t lose hope, soon Christ Jesus will descend.

Chorus:
Signs of the times are everywhere.
There’s a brand new feeling in the air.
Keep your eyes upon the eastern sky,
Life up your heads, redemption draweth nigh!

Its not faith alone. Its faith + works. Faith is essential, and so are works per the word of God.
How arrogant of the 20th century born againers to undo the word of God like that.
You keep relying on those good works Clay. Be the best you can be. You'll still be a lost sinner with good works...good luck.

King Jesus

All the armies of the world will someday gather
and they'll pass before the great reviewing stand
And they'll beat their swords and weapons into plowshares
and the Prince of Peace shall give the last command

Chorus
When King Jesus comes to live with us again
He will show His righteous love to every man
Wars and strife will all be passed
there'll be peace on earth at last
When King Jesus comes to live with us again

Unobscured the sun will drive away the shadows
At the dawning of that great eternal day
and there'll be no sounds of crying in the ghetto
for all grief and pain and death shall pass away

Chorus
When King Jesus comes to live with us again
He will show His righteous love to every man
Wars and strife will all be passed
there'll be peace on earth at last
When King Jesus comes to live with us again

Repeat Chorus
When King Jesus comes to live with us again
He will show His righteous love to every man
Wars and strife will all be passed
there'll be peace on earth at last
When King Jesus comes to live with us again

Repeat Chorus - fading
When King Jesus comes to live with us again
He will show His righteous love to every man
Wars and strife will all be passed
there'll be peace on earth at last
When King Jesus comes to live with us again

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.
The Apostle Paul continues I believe in Romans Chapter 5) by pointing out that he was alive when he was apart from the law.

Then, when the commandment came, sin came alive and I died.

Do you understand this, Chuck?

Sounds like "looking within" [faith] is exactly what Jesus taught.

The Sacrament of Baptism was installed by God through the Blessed Apostles. I'm sorry, but this included water. We don't use water because we read a series of Bible passages and decided it wasn't necessary. We use water because its Gods will. That's why Baptism stayed untouched for almost 1900 yrs before the born again movement decided to undo it.
Did you ever stop and think that water is the most essential ingredient for life? Without it, we die. Baptism with water is not just a cute symbol, Preston. There is a reason why God wants us to use it. You have no business undoing His will.
That's,not their,argument per se.

Cowboy believes,in Baptism ..But without faith being baptized,alone,will not bring salvation..

The lo of of Christ washes.Faith in the,Sacrifice and in Him .

If baptized,whenever ..And,not acknowledging and,Believing in Christ as,your Saviour,..all you've had,is,wAter,..holy or not

Titus 2:14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are ZEALOUS for good works.

What does zealous mean you clown?
-filled with or inspired by intense enthusiasm

**You see Clay, a born again Christian wants to do good works because Christ lives through them.

You on the other hand do good works to try please God. You are doing it to get Heaven.

Won't work Clay, you first have to have a relationship with Him.

Wacky theology

Jehovah SENT his son to preach truth ... yet the Catholics, Muslims, and Protestants (in that ORDER, comparable to ducks in a row) claimed and still claim that THEIR religions are based on the one and only truth.

The old song "The Wayward Wind" ... comes to mind!

Education hs never proven that it can change a person's inner most beng.The many demons that haunt human kind,that is: their addictions,fetishes and things they do that disrupt their lives and others as well,(we call sins) are never challenged by education ,but only by a conviction in a person's heart that they need help with their infractions and ills of human behavior.

Religion cannot help a person to change his or her attitude,but it can make them aware they have a problem.But God who knows our hearts and has counted every hair on our head SEES,and can penetrate our barriers to Him.He wants to change us from within,because He is Perfect,and wants to give us a big chance to know what life can be like in His perfection,rather than our dysfunction!

Here, Chuck, again:

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.>>>>>

Jesus' blood did what for the people who died in FAITH in the Old Testament?

Jesus' blood set them FREE from the SINS COMMITTED under the first covenant.....why?

Because they had OBEDIENT FAITH....

Water baptism alone does not save a a person fro m their sins...
John was call the Baptist because of he baptized...
Mat 3:5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan,
Mat 3:6 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.
Mat 3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers,
who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
NOTE....JOHN REQUIRED REPENTANCE AND FRUITS FIRST
Mat 3:8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:
Mat 3:9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
Mat 3:10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
NOTE 1.JOHN SPOKE HERE OF HIS BAPTISM..
.2.THEN THE BAPTISM (OF FIRE) THE HOLY GHOST THAT WOULD COME THROUGH JESUS..(WHICH MOST CHURCHES IGNORE/DENY TODAY.)
Mat 3:11 1. I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance:
but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear:
2.he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
THERE IS NO SEQUENCE THAT HAS BEEN SET AS WHEN A PERSON SHOULD BE BAPTIZED IN WATER...ONLY REPENTANCE COMES FIRST ACCORDING TO JESUS
JESUS SAID...MARK WRITES...
Mar_1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH BELIEVES THEY ARE THE KINGDOM OF GOD...AND IT
DOES NOT BELIEVE THE GOSPEL ---SO THAT
EXCLUDES THEM..HERE...
ONE EVEN SAID IT SUCKS...

Peace

1Cor 14:33 "...for God is not a God of tumult, but of peace, as in all the assemblies of the saints."

It is a most interesting scripture, as the word for "tumult", and "peace", have multiple meanings. We usually, via the KJV think of the words "confusion" and "peace"....The scripture has great depth.

But the implication of peace is also that of welfare.

It is difficult for me to say, that today's RCs are not for peace and the welfare of all. Of course there will be some on the fringes that are not.

So your thesis that RCs do not accept the Gospel, is by my observation, unwarranted(to say the least).

I think in the long run it is best to let God separate and sheep and the goats, and leave the generalizations aside concerning "all" RCs....

Peace

The theology states "Jesus ... King of the (faithful) Jews, who (because he was WISE) abandoned his Jewish father to support Protestants ... just like YOU!"

Wasn't that WISE of Jesus to be made OVER in YOUR Protestant image???
