Actually I was talking about the “once saved always saved” as comforting. The Calvinist view of predestination is definately not comforting. But the same can be said about some Catholic doctrines as well.
What postition do you not hold?
That men and women are chosen (Predestined) to be saved and they have no choice in the matter?
Maybe I misunderstood but you said:

Were you talking about the Presbyterian Church?
I had no idea that a Presbyterian member had to submit their interpretations to Church leaders. Is this correct?
