All Have Sinned :

Now isn’t it quite amazing? Doesn’t this show the lack of discernment on our part and the dullness of our own hearts? Those of you who are born again, those of us who are born again, upon hearing “all have sinned” we ought to be falling out of chairs at this very moment worshiping God and giving thanks to God that he has saved us from such a terrible thing. And those of you who are not born again, who treat the gospel as something common, or maybe have gathered unto yourself a sort of gospel that doesn’t change life. You ought to fall on your face in fear knowing that if God doesn’t move on your behalf, you will stand before him in your sin and that is a most terrible state.

“All have sinned.”

Why don’t we tremble? Why don’t we know how terrible this is? We don’t know how much we have sinned in the same way a fish doesn’t know how wet it is. We were born in sin. We were conceived in sin. We were born in a fallen world of sin. The only thing we have ever known is sin. Our society, as Scripture says, drinks down iniquity like it was water.

Tom, it will not take you nor anyone else long to notice that this website does not in any way shape or form promote the unity of Roman Catholics with Christians. We cannot be united any more than we can with Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses or Muslims.

The Roman Catholic Church is a false system and a false religion that does not preach the truth, but like all man made religions preaches truth with error and will see many who follow it end up in hell forever.

I would remind you or anyone else involved enslaved by it to take note of our Lord's Words here :

2Cor 6:14 Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?
2Cor 6:15 What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever?
2Cor 6:16 What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, "I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
2Cor 6:17 Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you,
2Cor 6:18 and I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty."

Wow!

My brother. I didn't notice this comment before I posted nice words about you on my blog. No wonder you screen all comments.

But I leave you with this:

Matthew 7:1 "Stop judging that you may not be judged, and the measure with which you measure will be measured out to you. Why do you notice the splinter in your brother's eye, but do not perceive the wooden beam in your own?"

Matthew 5:21 to 5:26. "Teaching about Anger." These are precepts that you should live by. Jesus commanded it and you should listen. Who are you to ignore the teachings of Jesus?

I have no anger and I do not judge. At least I try not to.

God Bless,

Deacon Tom

We cannot be "brothers" Tom, one of us has a false Gospel, another Jesus and another Spirit.

Paul said this :
2Cor 11:3 But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ.
2Cor 11:4 For if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it readily enough.

According to the Word of God who does not lie Tom, it is the Roman Catholics who are believing a lie. There is no purgatory, Mary is not our mediator and was a sinner, the pope is not vicar of Christ, that title is reserved only for the Holy Spirit!

I tell you this not out of hatred but out of love. Please repent and believe the Gospel.

Matthew 7:1 tells us to stop judging. In verse 15 Jesus tells us to beware of false prophets, and the next verse He tells us to know them by their fruits. THAT sounds like judging, doesn't it?

So did Jesus contradict Himself? Or maybe verse one wasn't supposed to be telling us not to discern truth from error, and recognise and warn of false teachers at all. In fact, in that verse He was telling us not to be hypocrites. That's what verse one is all about. People yank it out of context, but when they do they make it violate what He said just a few sentences later.
