What Is The Third Heaven
  
The scripture you are referring to is 2 Corinthians 12:2. Paul mentions that he went to the third heaven, not to the third LEVEL of heaven. The third heaven is paradise (2 Corinthians 12:4 KJV). This was a vision Paul had in which God revealed Himself to Paul in order to give Paul strength and faith to help him continue his ministry.

It's obvious that we who call ourselves Christians hold different doctrinal beliefs. I would just like to encourage everyone to be respectful toward one another. Regardless of what your denomination is...please.


Obama Bows To Muslims
  
Luella, with all due respect, I'm not searching for untruths. Obama bowing is a truth. Obama removing the name of Jesus from a famous Catholic University is a truth. The truth is staring you in the face...can you see it?


Obama Bows To Muslims
  
I watched the video of Obama bowing just a couple days ago. The shocking thing is that it looked almost as if he were kissing the hand of the person he was bowing to. Unfortunately, there was a man obscuring the view. Without a doubt, Obama paid homage to this person with a deferential bow. It is really shocking. Not only is he bowing down to a muslim leader, he is now omitting the name of Jesus Christ from the platform of Georgetown University. It is clear what his religious affirmations are. His actions speak louder than words.


God Told Me Who To Marry
  
I don't believe God would tell you that you would marry a certain person and not tell the certain person the same thing. This is spiritual manipulation.


Do Unborn Babies Go To Hell
  
There is an age of accountability where a person is held accountable to understand right and wrong and able to repent of their sins. Obviously, unborn babies never reach that age, therefore they are not accountable for any sin nature and would not be condemned to hell.

Natalie, I'm not trying to tell you what your religion or faith believes, I'm just trying to have a discussion that relates to the original blog. As far as scriptures go, let's take the "whole" of the scriptures, not just one isolated verse that proves our point. The person that wrote the blog asks about a guy who is a Catholic and has strong Catholic values. You are saying that baptism saves you. Again, my question is if this is true, why did Christ die? After all, John the baptist was baptizing before Christ started preaching.

Thanks MIC for the clarification. I find this really interesting. I'm just wondering about absolving sin and original sin. Where does that come from? Is this the baptism or sprinkling of infants? Also, I'm understanding you to say that once absolved, or baptized, RC's then endeavor to become Christ-like in their lives by the way they live, and therefore become Christians? Am I getting it right?


Do Unborn Babies Go To Hell
  
It's inconceivable to me that someone would think that unborn babies go to hell. This person is utterly mistaken. I would like to know the basis for their answer.

Natalie2, If you are saying that all Catholics are baptized as such and therefore all are saved, you are in error. Catholicism may come to all those baptized into the church by ritual, however, salvation only comes by grace through faith. They are not one in the same. Thus my statement about knowing some Catholics who are saved and others who are not. If our religion could save us, why did Christ die? He died so that all who believe (trust in, adhere to, and rely upon) Him could inherit eternal life. That's why many Christians talk about Christianity being foremost a relationship with Christ rather than a religion or denomination. I hope I clarified what I meant.


Fiance Isn't a Strong Christian
  
Too bad you got to this stage in your relationship and now have to deal with a question that should have ended it before you got emotionally involved. Have you ever heard the verse, "guard your heart"? My opinion is that there is no way you should marry this guy. I'm guessing he has tons of baggage in the closet you will only find out about after you are married and then you will be suffering from trying to deal with it. You have no idea the misery marrying someone like this will bring, and I hope you do not find out. I know it's hard, but break up with him. Next time you date someone, guard your heart against falling in love until you know the guy well enough to figure out if you have the same Christian commitments.


Obama Bows To Muslims
  
Obama has always had a policy of trying to woo the mid-east countries into a "friendship" with the U.S. He says, "We are not a war with Islam". The thing he fails to understand is that true Islam IS at war with anything and anyone that is not Islam. It is a religion of peace, only if you are Muslim. Islam views all persons out of the religion as "infidels". We are therefore infidels and can never be friends with Islamic nations in their eyes. We are also friends of Israel, another reason they will never befriend us. Obama doesn't get it,or maybe he does. There is no separation of religion and country in Arab nations. Obama's "bow" indicates his sympathies toward Islam, without a doubt.


Is Male Companionship Cheating
  
You are setting yourself up to cheat if you do this. Your emotional needs are not being met by your husband. Looking outside your marriage for a male friend to meet those needs is definitely wrong and will end up destroying your marriage. You need to insist on marriage counseling. In the mean time, surround yourself with some good Christian female friends who can offer companionship and prayer support until you get your marriage back on track.
