David said, " Brendan
I didnt compliment you to start an argument."

Mea Culpa!

Please forgive me for that insult. I had no sleep, I was tired and hungry, and I just blew up on line.

**BTW, Brendan
Though we disagree agree on doctrine, I for one, admire your dedication.
---David on 3/23/19**

Which doctrines are you disagreeing with?

Explain Hebrews 10:24-25
Melody said, " but first of all and above everything else is to bring the souls to Eternal salvation, because what would be the use, if we were doing good deeds to others and leaving them in spiritual darkness by not sharing THE ONLY WAY OF SALVATION that is through our LORD JESUS CHRIST?"

Have you ever heard that you can attract more flies with honey than with vinegar?

Church Leaders Getting Wealth
I entered a monastery because I love God, and not for money. I took a vow of poverty.

But there are so many preachers and politicians that believe that somehow, asking for money is Godly. This is not of God, this is personal pride and avarice.

While there have been times I have begged for money, I mostly have asked you to pray that God would bless us so that particular urgent needs could be met. So far, He has been faithful.

Explain Hebrews 10:24-25
Melody said, "Love: Bring and inspire the souls to repentance by sharing THE GOSPEL OF SALVATION through our LORD JESUS CHRIST!"

Melody, in all of 1Corinthians 13, there is not a a single verse saying that love is bringing a sinner to repentance.

Instead, read Matthew 25.

For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.


He Is A Devout Catholic
John3695 said, Blessed St. Joseph, I consecrate myself to your honor and give myself to you, that you may always be my father, my protector and my guide in the way of salvation. ... Amen.

John, the various devotionals that you are quoting from are NOT OFFICIAL CATHOLIC DOCTRINE! To get to those, you must first READ and COMPREHEND the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Then, you must quote from that document.

He Is A Devout Catholic
Why is it that almost ALL Protestants, Evangelicals, and especially home grown and usually flaky Christians believe that Catholics are unbelievers?

I find this type of post particularly offensive. I am an Eastern Catholic, I was washed in the water of Baptism on July 1, 1951. I have been doing my utmost for His best for the past 40+ years.

DON'T make the mistake that I am less Christian than you!!!

Authority Of The Government
Nicole Lacey said, "Again, Socialism is 'light Communism"

Nicole, just to let you know, the nuns in the Catholic Church (Roman) live a communist lifestyle. Each according to her need. They are far from being Socialist, much less Marxist. Please stop confusing the two.

Prayer For Healing
John9346 said, "Strongaxe your presupposition is very flawed sir long before monks Christians knew the full canon read, studied, and defended against heresy using The Scripture..."

And John, you are wrong! Which Christians are you talking about? Remember, the NT Scriptures simply did not exist until at least 50-90 years AFTER the Resurrection!

And the monks were not writing doctrine. They were copying the Bible, not making innovations. That way, the Bible you were reading in Antioch was the same as in Jerusalem.

Authority Of The Government
StevenG said, "You attack her grammar and spelling instead of the teaching? Is that how you would respond to Moses?"

I am not attacking anything! I am just pointing out that those (like me) who don't speak the original language would like to know what she is talking about

Authority Of The Government
Melody said, "It's useless letting them know their wrong to the respect, for they have a way (in their own corrupt doctrines) to keep on denying their own twisting of The Scriptures and not even fear what THE LORD HIMSELF warns about it)"

Melody, what you don't seem to realize is that your message would go over better if you spell in Standard English, using modern English grammar.

Authority Of The Government
Melody said, "How irrational are your words (coming from your person) as you said"People misusing The Bible, brought division and confusion". . .

Look to your own soul first! You use Bible-like phrases simply to spread confusion.

Denominational Church Missing
kathr4453 said, "Here's the thing, it doesn't matter what anyone named the first day after the it "Bologna Day" , who cares. EVERY DAY is named after something pagan or whatever. We don't worship the name of the day...good grief!"

Kathr, did you know that in the Russian language, Sunday is called Resurrection? So how can the Russians be worshiping a pagan god? Especially as they were Christians before the KJV was published?

What Is Purgatory
kathr4453 said, "AND Then there are those who use their own words, not scripture, and use the Cross as a weapon to beat another black and blue with,..."

And then there are those who speak in biblical tones, and THUNDER what sounds like God's Word, but when looking it up, one finds that what they quoted is NOT the exact verse from the Bible. Those are to pitied and prayed for the most.

Denominational Church Missing
"You are correct to state that only a King James Bible with a black cover should be used is in error - it just goes to show you how far away some churches have been deterred from was is important."

dagnabbit! I thought that the scarlet colored cover was canonical as well!

Finish It Here January 2019
Nicole, I don't understand why you find the word "Roman" offensive. However, I am glad to not use that word.

On the other hand, please allow our foibles to show up on these blogs occasionally. If we say "Roman" accidentally, just give it a rest, and live and let live.


Apostles Write About Jesus
Melody said, " May THE LORD bind and correct your un-Christian false
testimony words - as HE knows that what I have shared is in accordance to GOD'S WORD!"

Okay, Melody. If you feel led to rebuke everybody, we can flow with that. However, we ask that you have the grace to accept the our words when we rebuke you! Even the greatest prophets had the humility to accept correction. Plus, once they had delivered their prophecies, that was the end of the rebuke. They didn't continue to harp on the subject again and again.

Penalty For Sin Is Death
Melody said, "End of discussion!"

Please! I for one have found it difficult to read these blogs as all you do is rebuke and rebuke, without showing book chapter and verse when you are busy rebuking.
