JESUS said, "If you continue in My word then you are truly My disciples; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31-32 Those who the traditions and commandments of men, and who 'add to', 'take away from' or 'twist' God's word for their own purposes are NOT 'disciples' of Christ, do not 'abide' in His word, do NOT know the truth, and are NOT free...

And faithless men left behind the Holy Spirit to follow after deceitful renegade Catholics; who ever since have been called "The Reformation."

There are among the true Christians here, Catholic faithful;

Wolves in sheep's clothing. Andy 544 is dressed in sheep's clothing. Absolutely!
Andy 544 is one of those "ravening wolves" Jesus prophesied would come to scatter us.

We only know that the Holy Spirit stayed within the Church Jesus founded; at the time of a so-called reformation. He did not change into A Bible-thumping ministry like those who followed after heretical teachers. That led Bible Thumpers into the spiritual wilderness; such as Rev Jjim Jones of Bible Kool Aid who poisoned his flock, or David Koresh; a minister who Thumped his Bible all the way to Waco, Texas and destruction of his flock, Branch Davidians.

Or Mary Baker Eddy; who got Christian Science rolling; or Holy Rollers; themselves a Thumping sect. I could list another twenty like them. They have in common a worship of the Bible. A Bible Habit is all !

"Troglodyte"? Isn't that someone who lives in a 'cave' and never sees the Light?

Well, OK, that establishes beyond any shadow of possible doubt that Luther, Bucer, Melanchthon, Calvin, Knox, etc. etc. are deceivers and liars. Thank you for sharing, Andy.

JESUS sent the Holy Spirit to lead us into ALL truth (1st John 2:27). Any 'teaching' or 'teacher' that doesn't 'line up' with the truth of God's word is a deceiver and liar.

The media, including some in the Christian media, throw around the word evangelical with little understanding of its proper definition. Most recently, the media has done this in referring to Pope Benedict XVI as the “Evangelical Pope.”

In an attempt to say he’s a missionary-minded Pope, or a proselytizing Pope, they impart a title that would probably make him most uncomfortable.

I have a deep respect for Pope Benedict. Respect for his impressive intellect. Respect for his strong stand on moral issues. Respect for his belief in the uniqueness of Jesus Christ for salvation. Respect for his levelheadedness in understanding other...
