  4. The Mark - Economical or Ecumenical?

    We have free will, but that will is weakened by our inclinations. For instance, the Antichrist is inclined to be the Antichrist. It is his destiny. He doesn't choose his inclinations anymore than someone chooses to like ice cream or not. Mary was destined to be the Mother of God. She wasn't afflicted with the same inclinations as the Antichrist because she had a different destiny. John the Baptist was destined to live off locusts, wild honey, live in the wilderness, and be beheaded for God. His inclinations lead him to behave that way. Neither them or the Antichrist choose the inclinations that lead to their destiny.
  5. Pope

    The Church never preached that we are saved by works. The Church teaches we are saved by grace. You destroyed your credibility You really ought to learn what you are talking about before judging and condemning others. I've been to plenty of Catholic masses. They read from the Gospels at every Mass. They follow the same Gospel as you. I'm not Catholic but like to pray in Catholic Churches and sometimes attend Mass. A Catholic could argue that you follow another Gospel when you preach the erroneous teaching that a belief must be found in the Bible to be true.

    You should not be their judge. Sorry, that's not what the Bible says. Romans 10:9 ► New International Version If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Catholics believe what is necessary for salvation. Regarding graven images, that commandment was for ancient Israelites...there is nothing in the New Testament that says Christians can't have images or that we have to follow the old law.
  7. The Mark - Economical or Ecumenical?

    Romans 9: (12-22) 12 It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. 13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated. 14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. 15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. 16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy. 17 For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth. 18 Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth. 19 Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? 20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? 21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? 22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction

    An Antichrist won't rise to power without God wanting it to happen. If God doesn't want it, it simply won't happen. Isaiah 45:7 I am the Lord, and there is no other. 7 I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create evil; I, the Lord, do all these things " A cashless society is simply God's will if it happens. God knew it would happen before the world began. Since God is giving permission for it to happen, he is permitting it for a reason. The Antichrist is just fulfilling his destiny. I'm not worrying about it. Worry and anticipation won't do any good. I worried that Obama was the Antichrist. What a waste of time and energy I spent worrying about it.
  9. The Gospel preached to the dead

    It used to be that anyone who ate fat or pork was detestable to God. God put people to death for working on the Sabbath. What was detestable then is sometimes approved of now
  10. The Gospel preached to the dead

    You aren't going to move me with OT verses. The rules for Ancient Israelites were not for Christians. If you are going to correct me, please quote what is forbidden in the New Testament.
  11. The Gospel preached to the dead

    The old testament forbids summoning spirits as necromancy to get hidden knowledge. The Scripture forbidding such practices are OT Scriptures. The OT forbids a lot of things that we don't follow as Christians. The new covenant made clear that much of what was forbidden is now sanctioned. There is nothing in the New Testament that says we can't contact other members of the body of Christ. When a person dies they do not cease to be a member of the body of Christ. We are one body, therefore connected to the Church in Heaven.
  12. The Gospel preached to the dead

    Where does it say the gospel can't be preached to the dead? I read the opposite
  13. The Gospel preached to the dead

    I don't choose to be confused. I read the Bible and am filled with confusion. I see Christianity is extremely divided and quarreling over interpretation. I don't know who to listen to. Hence, I don't choose to be confused, therefore I don't think others choose their blindness. I pray I and they could see.
  14. The Gospel preached to the dead

    1 Peter 4:6 That is why the Good News was preached to those who are now dead--so although they were destined to die like all people, they now live forever with God in the Spirit." This Scripture kept playing in my head today and it felt like Jesus was telling me that many confused people will have the truth fully presented to them after death , and they will be given the opportunity to accept or reject it. Many people do not know they are rejecting the truth. Jesus said," if they did not know, they would not have sin". Anyway, this Scripture gives me hope for the lost.

    Good. I just want to do God's will. I need understanding. I'm praying always.
