**1st. Tim. 2: 1-5 **“I desire therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men: For kings, and for all that are in high station: that we may lead a quiet and a peaceable life in all piety and chastity. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour, Who will have all men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator of God and men, the man Christ Jesus: BUT THIS IS CONDITIONAL: Luke 11:28 “But he said: Yea rather, blessed are they who hear the word of God, and keep it… Matthew 18:17 “And if he will not hear them: tell the church. [SINGULAR] And if he will not hear the church, let him be to thee as the heathen and publican”
WHAT’S YOU’RE EXCUSE FOR NOT BEING CATHOLIC?
**Luke 14:15-24 **“When one of them that sat at table with him, had heard these things, he said to him: Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God. But he said to him: A certain man made a great supper, and invited many. And he sent his servant at the hour of supper to say to them that were invited, that they should come, for now all things are ready. And they began all at once to make excuse. The first said to him: I have bought a farm, and I must needs go out and see it: I pray thee, hold me excused. And another said: I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to try them: I pray thee, hold me excused. And another said: I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come. And the servant returning, told these things to his lord. Then the master of the house, being angry, said to his servant: Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the feeble, and the blind, and the lame. And the servant said: Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. And the Lord said to the servant: Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. But I [JESUS] say unto you, that none of those men that were invited, shall taste of my supper"
Matthew 22:14 “For many are called, but few are chosen.” … **Matthew 7:13 ** “Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat” … Matthew 7:14 “How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!”
