or Back To Egypt in Ships

“That which they sought to save them from the condemnation of the Law of Moses has also innoculated them against the grace and Spirit of Jesus Christ.”

    Good article. This is so true. I point out to people occasionally that all the evidence, whether negative or positive, points to Christ. Only name cursed around the world.

    Zeppelin sang, “Prince of Peace, embrace the gloom, and walk the night alone.” Look at rock and roll for all the evidence you need. If the Word isn’t true, why would people waste their time suppressing, like Romans deals with?

    I like that you addressed Catholicism here, because God has been revealing a lot to me lately around the topic. I think the Jesuit connection is significant. A warring priesthood against protestantism. Their oath is disturbing. The French Jesuits apparently would incite the Native Americans to massacre coastal colonists in New England.

    There is a new Catholic station in my area and I’ve heard Mary called the “temple”, co-redemptrix, the Queen of Heaven, without sin, even interceding in Heaven for us. Although according the the Mormons she’s going to have to knock Joseph Smith out of that seat.

    Jeremiah 7:18
    “The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead dough to make cakes for the QUEEN OF HEAVEN (emphasis added); and they pour out drink offerings to other gods in order to spite Me.”

    Yet I know several people who have come to know Christ through Catholicism, not to make a blanket statement for every church. I realize there are unbelieving Baptist churches too!

    Yep – that’s why I said “on paper.” The Spirit isn’t limited by our creeds or our foibles. :)
