    Elka, I know that was directed to Catholicviewer, but what was up with the other comment:

    [quote:3nz181iz]No wonder I’m still Protestant…[/quote:3nz181iz]

    Was directed at catholicviewer?

    Actually I was hoping to someday come to understand why you still are Protestant. :mrgreen: But I’m sure that will take time.

    PS-Be nice to cahtolicviewer Elka. He/she doesn’t understand, but you are right, he blurt out without doing a little investigation.

    [quote:992cv0ml]another thing about the baptism, the Mormon church is the only church that does baptism the right way, baptism by immersion! [/quote:992cv0ml]

    Actually, my priest asked if I’d like to be baptised into the RCC by full immersion. I said no for fear of whiplash, but still…

    There are many Catholic churches that do full immersion of adults, but certainly not infants.

    Ok, well, maybe not full immersion, but some level of immersion with a lot of pouring.

    I agree with that part, but to call oneself a Christian and hold such different beliefs is silly. To put it ver, very boldly it perverts the true message of the particular group (in this case Christianity) and confuses those who would not know otherwise.[/quote:2ov5yi4r]

    In [u:2ov5yi4r][i:2ov5yi4r][b:2ov5yi4r]my opinion[/b:2ov5yi4r][/i:2ov5yi4r][/u:2ov5yi4r] it is a Heresy. Much like Nestorianism[/url:2ov5yi4r] and Socinianism[/url:2ov5yi4r]. I don’t really think they can be considered Christians.

    If I understand what I have read about them there are like three flavors of Mormons and each have different belief systems. There is also a extensive history of fights and murders throughout their entire history. They appear very occult-ish from the outside.

    I remember not drinking soda and coffee when I was only 14 yrs old. They would constantly tell me how I was destined to go to Chile and that will be where my mission would be as soon as I graduated high school. I was Mormon for about 9 months or so and now that I look back at it was pretty occultish even from the inside. I remember I stopped talking to my friends and even began getting into arguments with my mom <img loading=” title=”Sad” /> . Don’t get me wrong, they were very nice to me but they were just too nice. They made Ned Flanders from the Simpsons look like a demon. It just didn’t feel real. They were very robotic in their expressions. Not sure if the rest of the Mormon churches are like this but that was my experience. But then again, I was only 14. But I agree with you ftstemp….

    That is mostly due to the reality that many people aren’t rejecting Catholicism but rather what they perceive it to be.

    PS-Was it Newman that actually said this?

    [quote:2xz4csu2]Well, many, many years ago any group that dissented from the Church was considered heretical, but nowadays we don’t say that.[/quote:2xz4csu2]

    True but if you read about these is there another way to call it? I am not trying to be un-Christian, but one must call it what it is. Especially when they hold themselves out as Christian’s. The Flock must be educated and warned, correct?

    I know it’s strong language but I feel it’s necessary to warn those who are seeking out Christ.

    [quote:vrizv4ur]First and foremost, isn’t anyone who believes in Christ a christian? The answer is YES. And Mormons do. So therefore they are Christian, another thing about the baptism, the Mormon church is the only church that does baptism the right way, baptism by immersion! And have you ever read in the Bible where is says His (Jesus) sheep he has others of? Yeah that would be what the Book of Mormon is talking about, instead of downing other religions take a look at yours.[/quote:vrizv4ur]

    Believe in Christ? How exactly? Even msot atheists believe he EXISTED, that does not make them Christians. Mormons do not believe Jesus is God. They believe he was CREATED by God. That means they are not Christians, period. Also, the Bible never sas immersion is the only way to Baptize, and besides, plenty of churches baptize by immersion. In the Catholic Church, you can choose to be baptized by immersion.

    Where on earth you get the idea that Jesus is talking about the Book of Mormon is beyond me. The Book of Mormon was written eighteen hudnred years after Jesus preached. Did he let his flock go without spiritual guidance for THAT long? even though He promised the Gates of Hell would not prevail agaisnt his Church, and yet His church did not even have the Book of Mormon yet? That doesn’t make much sense at all.

    Morman is tecnicly christian, a christian is somone who belives that christ died for thier sins.
    Mormons belive that a prophet from the 18th centuery was visited by an angel who told him to write on golden plates the book of momon to set up a new church.
    The things they belive are unbiblical because if it is true then there should be somthing in the bible to support it.

    If I remember correctly, they can in fact give you biblical support for their prophet and the apostasizing church. Flawedly so, but they can.

    [/quote:neoei2pv]

    individually I can’t be specific, However the Bible says somewhere that a person can be judged by their words (Matthew 12:34-37), fruit, actions etc etc and based upon this, and knowing how one gets saved, we can have a pretty good clue to who is or isn’t saved. You know the old John 20:23 verse (as meant to be – wthout the priest) So I guess it is YOU that doesn’t know. Why? Because you think one is judged by how good they are as in if one’s good outweighs his nasty side – Not the Gospel

    The clues don’t indicate any sort of writing in stone. That person might turn into an unrepentent sinner from one day to the next.

    Victor, you say:
    [quote:3g304xc7]The clues don’t indicate any sort of writing in stone. That person might turn into an unrepentent sinner from one day to the next.[/quote:3g304xc7]

    Yet Scripture tells us :

    [color=darkred:3g304xc7][quote:3g304xc7]2 Cor 5:17 – Therefore if any man is in Christ, {he is} a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. [/quote:3g304xc7][/color:3g304xc7]

    and

    John 10:28 – [color=darkred:3g304xc7][quote:3g304xc7]And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.[/quote:3g304xc7][/color:3g304xc7]

    I see no “Back and forth” “saved and then unsaved” in Scripture although there are those who walk with a foot in each world – they’re either saved and are guilty of acting as an unbeliever or as it says in 1 John 2:19 -[color=darkred:3g304xc7][quote:3g304xc7] They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. [/quote:3g304xc7][/color:3g304xc7]

    So a saved person doesn’t get unsaved, although as Paul wrote in Romans 7:15 to 8:1 that a saved person stll occasionally commits a sin, he still remains saved. So what are you trying to say Victor?

    I’m saying exactly what I said before. I do not deny that:

    [color=olive:1frbupmi]2 Cor 5:17 – Therefore if any [b:1frbupmi]man is in Christ[/b:1frbupmi], {he is} a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.[/color:1frbupmi]

    Can a man [b:1frbupmi]that is in Christ[/b:1frbupmi], seize to be in Christ in the future? If not, why not?

    [color=olive:1frbupmi]John 10:28-And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.[/color:1frbupmi]

    Same question, applies to this verse.

    [color=olive:1frbupmi]John 2:19-They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. [/color:1frbupmi]

    This verse is talking about people who never committed. It is rather irrelevant to what I am talking about. I speak of men who have truly committed but seized to be in Christ and lost salvation.

    Let me give you a couple examples:

    Luke 8:13 – Jesus teaches that some people receive the word with joy, but they have no root, believe for a while, and then fall away in temptation. They had the faith but they lost it.

    Luke 15:11-32 ‚Äì in the parable of the prodigal son, we learn that we can be genuine sons of the Father, then leave home and die, then return and be described as “alive again.”

    John 15:1-10 – we can be in Jesus (a branch on the vine), and then if we don’t bear fruit, are cut off, wither up and die. Paul makes this absolutely clear in Rom. 11:20-23.

    Hopefully this will suffice.

    Peace In Christ
