No Mr.Weathers it isn’t about –
[quote:5pi7ga49]Ron,without getting a bunch of Bible verses back,In your OWN mind what does 1John 5:15,16 say to you? [/quote:5pi7ga49]
what I say isn’t the point, which is why I use Scriptures. The important thing is what does God say in His word and I’ve shown you
James 2:10+11 [color=red:5pi7ga49] For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all. For He who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.”Now if you do not commit adultery, but you do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law[/color:5pi7ga49]
and Rev. 21:27 – [color=red:5pi7ga49]But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.[/color:5pi7ga49]
So much for yoyur church’s teachings about not only Purgatory but also the “venial sins” issue. And so much more if you’d put down the “I’m a Catholic – I must be right idea” So very much more.
Besides, how often am I told to keep things in context – so one should not take isolated Scriptures if they would contradict others Scriptures.
