"IF" ?


#1

Dear friends in Christ,

“IF”

God IS “One”

Can there be more than only set of Faith beliefs?


#2

Please define your meaning of "Faith" here.

How you define the word faith here matters. I know of two different definitions off hand. I think and assume you mean one that I know of but will not answer until it is defined what you mean by "Faith". -not saying I will answer, just that I cannot with what you provided.

there is faith

then there is Faith.

A lot of the threads in this forum appear misplaced and miscategorized.


#4

There can be only one set of exclusive truths, but many levels of partial understanding.

No.

Whosoever will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the Catholic Faith. Which Faith except everyone do keep whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish everlastingly. And the Catholic Faith is this...

As the OP, the meaningo of "Faith" is a Set of required beliefs given, commanded and demanded by God for one'e salvation. I do hope this defination is satisfactory?

God Bless you,

This TRUE; BUT WHY? or what specific desired [but not commanded] purpose.

The Answer is in Isa. 43: verse 7 and 21.

God Bless,
Pat

OK, but that avoids answering my question:)

God Bless you,

Agreed, the OP's question seems to have little to do with the purpose of this sub forum and would fit better in another area.

Jharek, he tried proselytizing in Noncatholic Religions, but the moderator wisely closed the thread when he got testy with non-C's. So I presume his mission has resumed here instead. :(

Yes, thanks for clearing that up. That is what I thought you meant but I wanted to be sure. There are several different ways that the word faith can be interpreted.
