So WHY are you here preaching at Catholics that they are on a path to destruction ... if you believe Jesus and God love them just as they are.
You are a Protestant double-talking FRAUD!!!

----------
Who do YOU love? I'm not preaching that anyone is on a path to destruction whose faith is in Jesus' sacrifice for them. There ARE some doctrines in the CC (as well as other groups) that lead one to believe that Jesus AND something or someone else saves them.

Trusting in those other things gives glory to them that should be given to God.

People in religion that try to feign humility and yet claim to know the answers to supposed "universal truth" make complete fools of their selves.

Reviving Gnosticism is not my mission. Please notice I use a small "g" rather than a capital "G," in my reference to "gnostic Christians," as my purpose is not to preach Gnosticism, but to build a base of Christians, who think and believe in a gnostic way of faith.

who="June VanDerMark"]Non-human animals more often than not raise their babies until they can fend for their selves. They guide them and teach them all they know about survival, and will often die trying to defend their babies.
Humans often dump their children onto the welfare system because they simply don't know how to handle them.
There is much to admire about non-human animals.

Its not a matter of imagining, it is simply a path that I took in my spiritual journey. I hold neither the RCs or Protestants more aligned with salvation.
You imagined that if you left the Protestant religion for the Catholic religion you would have the ONLY chance of being saved.

If you believed that Protestants will be saved, you would not have left to run off to join up with the Catholics.

One might ask the question, "Why does anyone get baptized?", or more specifically, "Why did Jesus get baptized by John the Baptist, since he had no sin?

The simple answer is that knowledge of sin is not the central issue when it comes to baptism.

Jesus began his ministry with the baptism of John, similarly, when we are born, it is recognized that some lead spiritual lives and a spiritual journey with Jesus Christ.

For a person to have to wait until they "know" right from wrong might eliminate many unnecessarily from a spiritual life now, and eternal life....

You have not shown me Scripture that says Christianity is based on love and not on the teachings of Christ...because there is none...you, again, have egg on face....
I never argued that Christ did not teach a message of love as part of His ministry......

God IS love. Jesus doesn't just TEACH it...HE IS LOVE.

1Jn 2:5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.

1Jn 2:9 He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
1Jn 2:10 He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.
1Jn 2:11 But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

1Jn 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
1Jn 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

1Jn 4:12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
1Jn 4:13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.

1Jn 4:15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
1Jn 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

1Jn 4:19 We love him, because he first loved us.
1Jn 4:20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

Of course some animals kill their young. According to you God designed it that way.

Some humans raised in loving "Christian" environments kill their children and/or their parents.

You know what some man has told you. The Bible says that God is not willing that any should be perish. He paid a great price to make life available to all who will come to Him.

Even in this present time He is visiting Muslims (and others) in dreams and visions, and inviting them to Himself. The son of the Hamas leader has found Jesus, and is telling the world about Him. I correspond with a former Muslim who preaches and teaches the gospel in another nation.

Mary and the two disciples on the road to Emmaus did not recognize Jesus at first, because THEY WERE LOOKING FOR A DEAD MAN ! Jesus is alive.

Neither is true. Protestantism or RCism does not save. They each offer a different path, but its the person accepting Jesus Christ as Savior that gets saved.

I would agree that most people stay within their own religious back round, and use that as a cultural basis on which they live.

But those willing to change, and see through the eyes of another, and just be kind to each other goes a long way towards and blessed and happy life.

And whether you appreciate it or not, I wish for you peace.

Some protestant churches all baptize infants, it was the Ana-baptist that changed the practice in the 1600.
"The Catholic Church baptizes infants because Christ wills it. He must will it because He said, "Suffer the little children, and forbid them not to come to me." (Matt. 19:14). According to the Apostle Paul, one cannot truly come to Christ except through Baptism.(Rom. 6:3-4). Christ
must will it because the Apostles baptized "all the people" (Luke 3:21) and whole households
(Act 16:15, 1 Cor. 1:16). Certainly "all the people" and whole "households" included infants.
Christ must will it because He stated categorically that Baptism is a necessary prerequisite for salvation (John 3:5), and He certainly desires the salvation of infants. He must will it because
the primitive Christian Church, which had fresh firsthand knowledge of His Will, baptized infants. In the ancient catacombs of Rome the inscriptions on the tombs of infants make mention of their having been baptized."
“Christ wills it “? Why are you so willing to blaspheme Christ when your pagan baptism is regulated by the RCC? To say “Christ must will it because He stated categorically that Baptism is a necessary prerequisite for salvation” is ignorant of scripture. Your traditions and rituals have no bearing on salvation. You’ve taken a simple custom and somehow made it “the will of Christ”. You have no idea what Baptism of the Holy Spirit means do you. It fits in with Christ's Words

Matthew 3:11 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: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire

Acts 11:16 Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost.

Baptism by water was a CUSTOM/TRADITION in Israel way before John the Baptist. It cleansed the body. How can anyone believe baptism of the flesh is necessary for salvation? Lies and hypocrisy of someone pretending to know the Words of Christ. No discernment between the teachings of men and the Words of God and Christ.

BAPTISM:
http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/24...

A religious ablution signifying purification or consecration. The natural method of cleansing the body by washing and bathing in water was always customary in Israel

The new significance that Christianity read into the word "Baptism," and the new purpose with which it executed the act of Baptism, as well as the conception of its magical effect, are all in the line of the natural development of Christianity.

John 3:1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

The old salvation by proxy theory? Infant baptism was practiced by pagan societies centuries before Catholicism "borrowed" it from them. Prior to that, all Christians repented and believed first, then were baptized.

I don't think God particularly cares about the order of repentance, belief and baptism. I suspect that what you write is true, that water ablution rituals existed before the RCs. But does that matter? Even Jesus was baptized..., a Jew.

It is easy to say that one repents, quite another to do it. And even the demons believe Jesus Christ is the Savior. As for baptism, let me see how free an agent you are of Jesus, by answering me a question.

Do you think that a person can baptize him or her self? Why or why not. Explain a little if you can.

Remember when Christ sets you free, you are indeed free....
