I agree. I think that some of the things that Catholics practise are heresies, but on the whole if you believe in Jesus Christ, you are saved - Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, non-Denominational or whatever.

That is true.As long as someone believes and has repented to Jesus Christ and has given Him their life that person is saved.Why are you a nonbeliever?

That is what your moderators have labeled me as. While I do have some unorthodox beliefs as compared to here, I still have accepted Christ as my Savior.

No man can judge you, only God. Mans' labels are nothing.

I expect that there was a reason for it.

Exactly. I'm not sure what the reason was, but if I may guess, I'd guess that I said something that they didn't agree with Scripturally.

I am a part time Catholic as well.  All orthodox Christians can whole-heartedly recite the Nicene Creed which codifies our beliefs.  I do not follow the Church's teaching on everything; I do not petition saints, I do not believe in Purgatory for example.  But I believe in the power and sacredness of the Eucharist on the other hand.  I received Christ as a teenager and have been associated with several churches and denominations.  I have found the Catholic church to be aggressive in alleviating suffering and reaching out to the outcasts, as I think Jesus would want us to.  I wanted to be part of that, even though I privately dissent from certain doctrines..

Being about to recite a creed does not make a person a believer.Just like attending a Church does not make a person a believer.

If you have a question about your groupings, you should email us.

There are those who truly follow Christ in the RCC, I agree, but just because someone knows Jesus is the Son of God, or that there is one God does not make then part of the body of Christ.

Luke 4:41

And demons also came out of many, crying out and saying, “You are the Christ, the Son of God!”
And He, rebuking them, did not allow them to speak, for they knew that He was the Christ.


James 2:19

You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble!


It takes more than just believing Jesus is the Christ, it takes surrendering to Him and allowing Him to work in and through you to be a true follower.

I am sure God knows who is and is not His as He looks at every gathering. I have always said that we will be surprised as to who we will and will not see after we die. There will be those who we thought for sure would be sharing eternity with us, but didn't make it, as well as those whom we thought would never make if but are there.

It is not really fair to lump some of these people with demons, but I see the point. I do agree that the belief in Christ must be internalized-- the person must receive Christ to be saved.

Blessings best.....

    Absolutely,my Brother in Christ.......................It is all about YOUR relationship with Christ,many denominations have religious traditions of men and that does not mean that is what you base your faith on ,,,,,,or even practice.John 3:16 does say"WHOSOEVER" & no one is excluded from choosing Salvation by their Faith in Christ& receiving the Grace of God!

     Not every Catholic fits Donibms description & it is  very unfair to categorize everyone with such contempt,much too judgemental

                                                                                                                                                              With love-in Christ,Kwik

This site does not allow RCC teaching, nor does it allow RCC bashing.  Discuss the issue at hand and if you want to discuss a side view or subject, start another thread, but do so with the understanding that it is to be a discussion and not a form of bashing.

 

I have hidden some posts that were against our verbal policy of RCC bashing.

Perhaps the difference is in the belief of what it takes to become a Christian.

 

When did you become a Christian/saved?

What did you do, or was done to you which caused you to be a Christian/saved?

Best has made it obvious that he supports homosexuality if one has been following his posts.
