I think your right. Of course, she is going to try to say something about how WE are not listening to her or we don't care for Gods word, or some other slanderous lie. Roll Eyes

Mat 7:17  Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit.
Gal 5:22  But the fruit of the Spirit is: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith,
Gal 5:23  meekness, self-control; against such things there is no law.  
Eph 5:9  (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth),

And THAT'S how we know!

We can call ourselves "born again Christians" all we want, but if we aren't walking around with those "fuits" hanging off of us, I'd have to wonder (yeah, even wonder about myself sometimes)  Smiley

I'm getting a lot of flack from "professed" Christians for saying we should worship only one God and Jesus Christ whom He sent. Should I believe your words when you say you worship only Christ alone, or your actions when you pray to Mary and a myriad of other human beings, call your leader your Holy Father which Jesus said is a title reserved for only ONE, and believe the church doctrine is infallible?Why do you mock me for saying that we should worship Christ alone? Unbelievers are supposed to mock Christians for saying that. Whose beliefs more clearly agree with Christ's words, yours or mine? Please provide scripture from CHRIST to support your answer.

Are there invisible posts saying that?  Huh

Again, since when does Prayer = Worship?

last time I looked God the Father was called Heavenly Father not Holy Father.

I Christ a liar?

Noone has done that here.

Well your word most closely resemle your interpretation of Christ's words.  As apposed to an entire Body of Believers.  Although I don't agree with Catholics on everything.  I have to say their interpretation makes a lot more sense.

Yes. The RCC doctrine is worse than that of the Judaizers.
Appropos to that, why isn't the eucharist "CANNIBALISM?"

aw

gosh i can't believe i am even responding on this thread....heidi and aw are just a rash of accusations without thought.

however i just wanted to point out that there was a claim that the catholic church was a cult because a cult tries to focus on a man, then we see aw comment on the eucharist..  

now here is the dilemma... the whole point of the mass is to recieve the eucharist, which to a catholic is the body and blood of christ. it is the centerpiece, the climax. the whole point of protestant worship is the preacher preaching a sermon. I think if there is any chance of being a cult it is those that go to hear a man that should be cautioned and not those that are getting a piece of bread and drink of wine. The catholic can go to any catholic church to worship, many protestants have to hop around till they find a preacher that gets them excited.

for you protestants that do not do this, my apologies. i was a protestant for 10 years and know many fine and outstanding brothers and sisters in the lord.  i have also watched hundreds of people come and go because the preacher wasn't preaching what they wanted to hear...even though it was from the bible.

That just breaks my heart when that happens!
Unfortunately that is not exclusive to Protestant churches.
My mother-in-law (a Catholic) stopped going to her church because her priest became good friends with the Lutheran pastor in a neighboring church.
In our non-denominational, Prostestant church we had some people leave because they didn't like the fact that our pastor let his kids go to VBS at the neighboring Southern Baptist church.
It's heartbreaking when you think of some of the reasons people will choose to leave a church.  Cry
