(Comment) I have read the article by Dan Corner an ex Catholic, I do not agree with what he writes but he has a right to express himself. I am a Roman catholic myself and I believe, let as all try to lead godly lives and keep praying for one another, after all we are all Christians. Look at the rest of the world of Hinduism, Budbhism, Islam and the atheists in Europe! I believe God is kind and just and that he can see through our hearts. A dedicated prayerful Catholic nun who takes care of the needy and sick ,will attract the sympathy of God Compared to a born again who swindles money meant to build a hospital. Please let us agree to disagree and also be happy that in spite of our theological differences, we are all Christians who believe in the Trinity.(Bible Answer) ________, please know everyone who claims to be a Christian is NOT a real Christian (Mt. 7:23). There are many religious deceivers, but they do not change the biblical message. Also, just believing in the Trinity doctrine doesn't make one a Christian. It is the plan of salvation (gospel), which is the issue exalted in scripture (Gal. 1:8,9). It must be acted upon to get salvation. See Acts 20:21. To preach a false gospel brings an anathema from God on that person for his errant teachings, regardless if he helped the sick and poor or not! You and I were taught wrongly by the Catholic church. The message of the Catholic church about salvation is empty of power to set anyone free from their sin addictions! That is why YOU are still a slave to sin. You need to turn from your sins and commit your life to follow, trust and serve the Lord Jesus Christ to be set free and forgiven (Acts 20:21). Are you aware of how the RCC wants us to believe the Fatima visions? Those visions are "approved," yet highly contradictory to the bible. If you obey the message at Fatima you will be committing idolatry and will remain lost! What you do with this will affect your SOUL!
(Second Comment) Thank you for your reply. However you are not the custodian of my soul, that is God's responsibility. You can go on and on ,but trust me, I will not move an inch! I remain a committed Catholic, and you do not owe Me a living either physically or spiritually. Lastly please avoid writing messages in bold letters, that is considered rude in general, where is your humility? Life is a journey so we are still in pilgrimage, me and you are still faced with the struggles against the devil believe me on not. Nice chatting with you, and as I said please let us agree to disagree, one day we shall know the truth!(Bible Answer) _______, Greetings again. Please know I have never claimed to be the custodian of your soul. I am supposed to teach the truth and warn of dangers, as a loving Christian though. I am concerned for your soul. It is a godly concern for you. We both can't be right about salvation itself, which will affect our eternity beyond the grave. You stated you are a "committed Catholic," but that doesn't mean you understand or practice the will of God. You must learn the message of the bible, which is massively different from what you and I were taught as Catholics. Please know that no one is "born again" at infant baptism. That is not the true gospel of Jesus Christ. Also, the Bible is final spiritual authority (2 Tim. 3:16,17), and where you will be 100 years from now depends on what you do with the scriptures. Remember, Jesus has the words of eternal life (Jn. 6:68), but you don't know his teachings. How can you not be open to the truth of the bible? Could there be anything wrong with going 100% by the bible alone? Will you not be 100% SAFE to go by the written word of God alone? Should you not know the wonderful teachings of the Lord Jesus, and his apostles, as found in the New Testament by reading them directly from the bible? Note: The RCC has approved the Fatima visions. The Fatima visions and its Our Lady of Fatima message teach Mary is "THE WAY" to God in bold contrast to Jesus' teachings, where he said he himself is "THE WAY" to God (John 14:6). Question: Which contrasting message is from the devil, who wants us religiously deceived and lost? Could Jesus be wrong or is it the RCC? If we send you a FREE copy of our book, Is This The Mary of The Bible? would you read it? If so, please send your full mailing address. We are NOT your enemy. If we were, we would let you continue in religious error and spiritual death. Please also see Ex Catholic. Thank you.
(Bible Question) Do you believe that we have to stop sinning?(Bible Answer) _______, thanks for your question. When one contacts the blood of Jesus, he will be set free from his sin addictions (Rom. 6:22)! If you were never set free from your sin addictions, you have never been "born again" and remain a slave to sin and lost. Carefully read and reread Romans 6. The bible does NOT teach "sinless perfection." We have stated that over the years. The bible also doesn't teach that all sins are of the same degree. For both, see Christian Beliefs. Three questions for you: Are you set free from your sin addictions NOW (Rom. 6:22)? Do you believe King David remained saved when in adultery and murder? Do you believe the real "gospel," which teaches a conditional salvation security:
"By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain." (1 Cor 15:2)Thanks. 1 Cor. 6:9,10.
(Comment) I'm a true believer of the original King James Version.(Response) Have you ever suffered through reading the whole kjv bible?
(Comment) Paul was speaking in Romans 7:2,3. In Matt. 19:9, Jesus was speaking direct to the people and said if anyone divorces his wife - with the exception of adultery - and marries another woman commits adultery. The way this reads is that if anyone divorces his wife for the reason of adultery and marries another woman will not commit adultery. Jesus says there is one exception for divorce and remarriage and it is adultery.(Bible Answer) Did he? Are you sure? Do you remember Joseph and Mary? Joseph was going to "divorce" Mary BEFORE THEY WERE MARRIED WHEN THEY WERE ENGAGED over, what he thought was sexual immorality. God bless you. Heb.3:14.
(Bible Question) Question about the second coming of Jesus. Is there scripture support for a pretribulation rapture? Thank you
(Bible Answer) Greetings in Jesus' name. Even though millions believe in a pre-trib rapture, the Biblical proof is clearly for a POST-trib rapture. There is no way to know the damage the pre-trib rapture teaching has or will cause as things continue to get worse. If you are a Christian, you will NOT get raptured out of here until AFTER the tribulation, if we are of that generation. (The tribulation is not the “wrath” of God.) Furthermore, you will face the antichrist. Rev. 12:11 is vital to know, especially at that time:
They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.
GOD BLESS YOU. Heb. 3:14.
(Comment) I just made the decision to repent of belief in the Rosary and asking Mary to do the things I should only ask God through Jesus, my Savior. It is difficult because I feel like I just turned my back on my best friend, even though I understand now that relying on Mary is not Biblical. I read the Bible every day and have been a believer since I was a small child. (I'm 64 now) And yet I was deceived by the Catholic Church....and in truth, I went to them because I thought they were the first church, begun by Jesus Himself.... But I'm stepping out on a limb for Jesus and will proceed with faith in Him alone now. I could use your prayers! Thank you for your website. Wanted to let you know you're helping those of us who were led astray. I don't know where to go to church anymore. I'll just keep reading the Bible and let the Holy Spirit teach me. And I'll keep reading the information on your website. Thank you,
(Bible Answer) Greetings in Jesus' name. Thank you for telling us about your WONDERFUL decision to turn away from Catholicism to the truth of God as found in the Bible. Remember the Bible is FINAL AUTHORITY (2 Tim. 3:16,17).
Please know you have NOT turned your back on Mary. You have turned away from a non-existent religious invention which is labeled Mary, the mother of Jesus. Again, the Mary of Catholicism is not the Mary of the Bible. There are very few common points.
As a former Catholic, I too once believed the false claim that Jesus founded the Roman Catholic church and Peter was the first pope! The truth came to me after spending quality time in the Bible reading and thinking about its message. When I cried our for mercy as in Lk. 18:13,14, I was set free from my sin addictions and got saved. When I became a new creation it was apparent to me and others who knew me.
Be assured you are not stepping out on a limb by placing your faith in Jesus. You are safely standing on the solid rock by placing a submissive faith in the Lord Jesus to follow and obey him! That was the wisest decision you'll ever make.
We are in a horrible day with rampant FALSE teachers all around us. MOST can't find a sound church. (You are not alone.) We must all learn the message of the Bible or get lethally deceived. Keep seeking God and read carefully through the New Testament to learn about his salvation. It is WONDERFUL to meet you and we are so glad to read you are out of that false religion. Please sign up for our internet church. Again, thank you for sharing your testimony.
(Comment) I am not Catholic. Mother Teresa is a saint. She and her blessed nuns have ministered to hundreds of thousands of the poorest of the poor, and the sickest of the sick. She remains a beacon to the world of true Christianity. Do you live in abject poverty among the poorest of the poor. Do you dress the wounds of the dying?? “Judge not and ye shall not be Judged” Mother Teresa will definitely be over you in heaven.
(Bible Answer) Greetings in Jesus' name. How do you know Mother Teresa is a “saint”? Does the Bible say if one ministers to the poorest or sickest he/she will be a “saint”? No, it doesn't. One must be Biblically saved to be a saint. Mother Teresa was a Catholic nun who believed like a Catholic nun. She did not have the doctrine to be saved, even though she was very helpful and caring to the sick and poor. Remember: to be part of Jesus' spiritual family we must put into practice God's word (Lk. 8:21). That includes going directly to Jesus for salvation WITHOUT first going to Mary. It also means TRUSTING IN JESUS 100% FOR SALVATION, which leaves 0% left for Mary, the sacraments, church membership, etc. It is a trusting-submitting and enduring faith in Jesus which will get one into God's kingdom and saved from hell. GOD BLESS YOU.
(Bible Question) what do you think about a person who is committing biblical adultery that is a christian? heaven or hell?..thanks 4 your time
(Bible Answer) Greetings in Jesus' name. ALL adulterers will be damned to hell unless they repent and get forgiven of their wickedness (Rev. 21:8; 1 Cor. 6:9,10; Eph. 5:5-7; etc.). [It is IMPOSSIBLE to be an adulterer and a Christian at the same time.]
Please consider getting our 801 page book refuting eternal security entitled, “The Believer's Conditional Security.” There is MUCH in it that can help you better understand this salvation related subject. This book is the most exhaustive and comprehensive refutation to eternal security ever written.... Remember Gal. 6:8,9 is a SALVATION passage not a rewards passage. GOD BLESS YOU.
(Bible Question) Could you please tell me if all of the 144,000 will be men? Look forward to hearing from you.
(Bible Answer) Yes, they are all male. [Click here to read a text teaching we have on the 144,000 and how the Jehovah's Witnesses wrongly understand them.]
(Bible Question) First of all let me tell you that I really appreciate your teaching on once saved always saved. I was wondering if you believe that we need to keep the Ten Commandments. The reason I started questioning this was I was sent an article entitled _________.... Bye for now, God bless you,
(Bible Answer) Greetings in Jesus' name. Nine of the 10 Commandments were reinstated in the New Testament, but NOT the Saturday Sabbath command as given to Israel. Please note that even the so-called Saturday Sabbath keepers are NOT really keeping that command as given to Israel. They only have a modified command which is no command at all. Also, such people seem to be TRUSTING in keeping the Saturday Sabbath command and NOT JESUS.
The Pope has nothing to do with anything. He is a false teacher and false Christ. Forget him and what he says. Go by the Scriptures alone. GOD BLESS YOU.
(Bible Question) I've wandered from GODS truth. I am addicted to pornography. I blame myself . Does god ever stop loving people because of their sin.
(Bible Answer) Greetings in Jesus' name. You are asking the wrong question. Rather than asking if God stops loving a person because of his sin, you should ask if mental ADULTERY will drag your soul to hell. The answer is YES, that is, pornography will send you (or anyone) to the flames of hell. Have you read our materials which can help you [get free]? [Click lust then freed from sin addiction and keep yourself pure. Another one is on the new creation. GOD BLESS YOU. Heb. 3:14 & Mt. 5:28,29.]
