“NT Born Again & the Pope – 101” …Blog.
*** (2John 1:9-10-11) Everyone “Transgressing” and “NOT” abiding in the doctrine of Christ; does “NOT” have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ, he has Both the Father and the Son.
(2Jn 1:10) If ANYONE comes to you and does “NOT” bring this doctrine; Do NOT receive him into your house; Nor speak a greeting to him.
(2Jn 1:11) For he who Speaks a greeting to him; Is Partaker of his “EVIL” deeds.
*** (Romans 8:9) You, however, are ‘Not’ of the flesh but under the control of the Spirit; since God's [Holy] Spirit lives in you. And if anyone ‘Does NOT’ have the Spirit of Christ, he does = ‘NOT’ = belong to Him.
*** (1Jn 2:21) I have not written to you because you do not know the Truth; but because you know it; and know that -> ‘No Lie’ is of -> the Truth.
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.
The news has much to say about the POPE… but it ‘Lacks the Truth’, of the Holy Word of God! Can You handle the Truth or NOT…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…? I speak as a former Catholic, being raised in a Catholic home. I attended Catholic School & Church. And Yes, and was even an ‘Alter Boy’. As an adult, I still remember the “Latin Mass.” I left the Catholic faith in my late teens. It was not till I was in my “30’s” before I came to Christ and was Born Again by His Holy Spirit. My Spiritual “Eyes & Understanding” were opened by His Indwelling Holy Spirit. Catholics are “NOT” Bible Christians; but they are “Catholics!” They will NOT study the Bible, but are taught WHAT to believe by the Catholic Church. They are much like the “Jehovah Witness or the Mormons”. They are discouraged from learning any Bible principles from Born Again Christians. They are falsely taught, “The Catholic Church is the ONE True Church” on earth. All others are Protestants [refusing Catholicism] and are “Not Real Christians”. To them being Born Again is simply “Confessing Allegiance” to the Catholic Church and ONLY, their church water baptism! Also, they must be buried in a Catholic cemetery and receive the ‘Last Rites’ from a Catholic Priest. As a former Catholic, I know all the LIES…!
“Manipulation: ‘Temporal’ & ‘Spiritual’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (John 5:39-40) You examine the Scriptures = carefully because you suppose = that in them = you have eternal life. = Yet they testify about Me.
(John 5:40) But you = are ‘NOT’ willing = to come to Me [Jesus] = to have life.
*** (2Peter 3:15-16) And think of the long-suffering of our Lord as salvation as our beloved brother Paul also has written to you according to the wisdom given to him
(2Pet 3:16) as also in all his letters, = speaking in them of these things; = in which are some things hard to be understood, = which the unlearned and unstable = Pervert, = as also they Do the rest of the = SCRIPTURES, = to their own destruction [Damnation]. [1Corinthains 16:22]
(Mark 7:6-7-8) He [Jesus] told them, "Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites. As it is written, 'These people honor me with their lips: –> but their “HEARTS” are far from Me [God].
(Mark 7:7) Their worship of Me is empty: –> because they teach human rules as doctrines.'
(Mark 7:8) You ‘abandon’ the commandment of God: –> and hold to ‘human’ tradition." [Isaiah 29:13]

*** (Luke 11:27-28) And it happened as He [Jesus] spoke these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice and said to Him; = Blessed is the “WOMB” -> that bore You; and the “BREASTS” -> which You have sucked.
(Luke 11:28) But He [Jesus] said, -> NO; -> rather; blessed are they who Hear -> the Word of God = And -> Keep It. [Luke 6:46]
*** (Mark 6:3) Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him [Jesus].
*** (Matthew 1:25) He [Joseph] did not have marital relations with her [Mary] until she had given birth to a son; and he named him Jesus. [Matthew 1:21-to-25]
GOD does NOT Hear Prayer to Mary…! Christ Jesus had… “4 Brothers & 2 Sisters”… and those Catholics… STILL... Call Her the “Virgin Mary”...? Another Catholic LIE..!
*** (1Timothy 2:5) For God is One; and there is one Mediator of God and of men, the Man Christ Jesus,
“What does the Bible say about Jesus’ Mother: ‘Mary’? – 101” …Blog
*** (1Corinthians 2:14) But the = natural man = does “NOT”… receive the things [WORD] of the Spirit of God; for they are = “FOOLISHNESS” = to him; Neither can he = Know = them, because they are spiritually discerned.
“What does the Bible say about the ‘Eucharist’? -101” …Blog.
*** Ephesians 4:5 One LORD, One Faith, One “BAPTISM”….!
… Is that One “BAPTISM”… The Holy Spirit Baptism, “1Corithains 12:13”… or is it ‘SIMPLY WATER’, which ONLY gets one Wet…? Please Answer… “Yes or NO”…?
*** (1Corinthains 12:13) For also by one [Holy] Spirit we are all baptized [1Corinthians 12:13] into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free, even all were made to drink into one Spirit. [John 7:38-39 & Acts 15:8-9]
*** (Titus 3:5) NOT by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,
*** (1Corinthains 1:17) For Christ did ‘NOT’ send me [Paul] to Baptize; but to Preach the gospel; not in wisdom of words; lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect.

*** (John 3:3) Jesus answered and said unto him; Verily, verily, I [Jesus] say unto you: Except a man be born again; he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. [Romans 8:9]
*** (Romans 8:9) You, however, are not of the flesh but under the control of the Spirit; since God's [Holy] Spirit lives in you. And if anyone ‘does not’ have the Spirit of Christ, he does = ‘NOT’ = belong to Him.
*** (Galatians 2:16) Knowing that a man is “Not Justified”: -> by works of the Law: -> but through Faith in Jesus Christ; even we believed in Jesus Christ: -> that we might be Justified by the faith in Christ: -> and ‘Not’ by works of the Law. For ALL flesh -> will ‘Not’ be justified: ->by works of law.
*** (Galatians 3:11) Now it is obvious that no one is justified in the sight of God by the law, because "The righteous will live by FAITH."
*** (Ephesians 2:8-9-10) For by grace you are saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God,
(Eph 2:9) not of works, lest anyone should boast.
(Eph 2:10) For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them.
*** (Romans 11:6) But if by grace, then it is no more of works; otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it is of works, then it is no more of grace; otherwise work is no more work.
“MANY”… miss that the Holy Spirit... “John 7:38-39”... and the Spiritual Baptism... “1Corinthians 12:13 & Ephesians 4:5”... is a “Divine Transaction”: Done by “GOD ALONE!” Did ‘You’ purposely miss.... “Acts 15:8-9”... where GOD sees their “Hearts”... and HE ‘Only’... gives them: His Holy Spirit… “Ephesians 4:30 & Romans 8:9 & 2Corinthains 1:21-22”!
“What is ‘Salvation?’ – 101” …Blog.
(Jeremiah 29:11-12-13) For I know the purposes which I am purposing for you, says Jehovah; purposes of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
(Jer 29:12) Then you shall call on Me, and you shall go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.
(Jer 29:13) And you shall seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
This for any Catholic, who will “HONESTLY”… Examine these Bible verses and then “Ask GOD”! He has promised to “Reveal the Truth” to them, when they seek Him: with all their heart. But IF they Reject the TRUTH of His Holy Word and return to Catholic Teaching, they will never come to Him again. … TRUE Christianity is “NOT A RELIGION”…! It is a Relationship with GOD, by the “FINISHED WORK of Redemption”… by Christ Jesus [Messiah] the Passover Lamb of GOD [1Corinthains 5:7] Christ Jesus [Messiah] is Our “PASSOVER LAMB of GOD”…! [1Corintahins 5:7] Christ Jesus [Messiah] is our -> SABBATH [Rest]! [Matthew 11:27-to-30]...! The TRUE WORSHIP of GOD... is a Function of the HOLY SPIRIT [Romans 8:9 & Acts 15:8-9] in our Hearts and “NOT”... of the Day of the Week...!
*** (Hebrews 10:18) Now where Remission of these is, = THERE IS = NO MORE = OFFERING FOR SIN.

*** (2Corinthians 11:4) For if someone comes along and preaches another Jesus than the one we preached, or should you receive a different spirit from the one you received or a different gospel from the one you accepted; you are All Too willing to Listen.
*** (2Timothy 2:15) Do your best to present yourself to God as an approved worker who has nothing to be ashamed of, handling the Word of Truth with precision.
(2Tim 2:16) However, avoid pointless discussions. For people will become more and more ungodly,
*** (2Corinthians 4:7) But we have this Treasure [Romans 8:9] in earthen [our human bodies] vessels; that the excellency of the [His Holy Spirit] Power; may be of God; and –> ‘NOT’ of us.
