He Is A Devout Catholic
  
To mention just a couple of things, john:

1. Baptists don't believe baptism has anything to do with salvation. Jesus ordered it, so how is this so?

2. The NT shows model of the church is hierarchical (or episcopal) polity, with bishops, presbyters, and deacons, as well as lesser ministers. But Baptists have congregational polity, despite what the Word of God says.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

\\Strongaxe show where and how those who pledge to a flag attribute God Qualities to the flag when they pledge to it unlike RC and Eastern Orthodox who attribute God Qualities to icons and saints???
---john9346 on 3/16/19\\

But we don't do that, john, so your accusation is baseless.

\\Also, Cluny doesn't know much about The Eastern Orthodox Religion as he claims. \\

john, on the other hand, knows absolute nothing about it.

kathr, you're pointing out what I've been meaning to ask Melody, so I will do so now.

Melody, were I to return to being a Baptist, would I be as gentle, forbearing, kind, as loving as you are?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

\\Christian Love - your words don't show at all --\\

Do you actually think that YOUR words do, Melody?

\\when he constantly is thinking new ways to come against the Evangelical denominations\\

No, dearie. Only you.

You are one to talk. You think of new ways to come out against Pre-reformation churches, Melody.

As I asked you earlier. What do you know about the Eastern Orthodox Church?

If you know nothing (which seems to be the case), how do you know God doesn't approve of it?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

\\ It'll be interesting to hear why did you leave an Evangelical Christian denomination ...\\

Because God gave me the grace to see that what Baptists believed could not be supported by the Bible.

What do you actually KNOW about the Eastern Orthodox Church, Melody?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

My heart is broken, Melody.

You promised you wouldn't answer me back any more.

I guess among your other faults, the truth is not in you.

Why should I listen to someone as a spiritual expert who won't even be honest?

Glory to Jesus Christ.

\\(and HE still on the crucifix)\\

And if you set up a creche at Christmastime, does that mean you think that Jesus is still a baby in a manger, Melody?

\\Doctrinally their primary deity according to their literature is what they call the Virgin Mary. \\

RioLion, can you please give a direct quote from the source you claim says this?

FWIW, when I was a Baptist before I got saved and became Orthodox, we said prayers to pieces of cloth.

Glory to Jesus Christ!


What Are Lords Commandments
  
\\God did not set me free to put me back under the yoke of bondage. Galatians 5:1. Another Book you refuse to read or obey. \\

kathr, have you read the part in Galatians that says that Jews are spiritually the children of the slave woman Hagar?

Glory to Jesus Christ!


He Is A Devout Catholic
  
\\give honor and reverence to THE LORD and experience GOD'S FREEDOM from the bondage where you are - don't wait much longer while THE LORD still calling you for repentance \\

Why don't you follow your own advice, Melody?

\\- be saved now and forever: "I press toward the mark for the prize of High Calling of GOD in CHRIST JESUS"\\

Was Judas saved? He was just as called by Jesus as the other 11.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

\\ well we don't pray to mary and the saints. and we got an intercessor between us and God, his name is Jesus.
---tim on 3/14/19\\

Does this mean you don't ask anybody to pray for you?

\\Think about what you said baptism doesn't save you my friend and neither do your good works both you focused upon...
---john9346 on 3/14/19\\

The Bible says in one of the letters of St. Peter, "Baptism doth now save us."

Who's right, john? You or the Bible?

Does this apply to the worldly denominational "church" of Steveng?

And just what are your criteria for being what you consider a "true Christian," Steveng?

Christianity is a lifestyle, not a member of some denominational "church" each having their own rituals, traditions, ways of living and interpretations of the bible. Is Christ divided?\\

Does this include the denominational "church" of Steveng, with your own rituals, traditions, ways of living and interpretation of the Bible?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

kathr brought up an interesting point.

Chapter divisions were made in the Bible about 1000 years after the NT was written.

Verse numbers were added about the time of the reformation.

I'm not saying that these are not useful, but as kathr pointed out, they are not part of the original mss.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Tell me which ones denied this, john.

Glory to Jesus Christ!


What Is Love
  
In ancient Greek, EROS, AGAPE, and PHILIA are used interchangeably.

Family love, the only word with a single meaning, is STORGE.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

In my experience as an Orthodox, Melody, it's protestants like you who are the real unbelievers.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

john, tradition is the lens by which we focus the light of Scripture where it does the most good.

It is also how we know which writings are canonical.

Why do you accept them, john?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

\\Even though Eli means "my God" in that particular edition of that bible translation, Does it matter?\\

What do YOU think the Hebrew word "Eli" means, Steveng?

Jesus is God Incarnate, whether you believe it or not.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
