As we’ve told you before, and provided links as evidence, at every Mass 2 OT passages are read at length (typically chapter length), a Psalm is sung or read, and a Gospel passage is read (typically chapter length). This is followed by a short homily where the priest or bishop expounds upon the readings, often to show the linkages between them, often to show how the readings pertain to Christian life, often to challenge us to fulfill the promise of the reading.
Actually, this is a lie. What I said is that I don’t understand why Roman Catholics feel the need to preach the Gospel in every mass when they believe that every Roman Catholic is already saved.
Given your continuing inability to speak truthfully, and how many call you on it, you should probably watch whom you call a liar. Not every thread you post in gets deleted—you have a track record. A poor one.
I love to see people reading, preaching, and studying the Gospels. I just don’t understand why you insist on preaching the Gospel of salvation to those who are already saved.
Because we love the Gospel. Why not take it off the shelf?
Of course, I know what you mean. You’re only saying this because you don’t know the difference between the Gospel of salvation and the Synoptic Gospels. That’s a very common mistake for someone who doesn’t study the scriptures to make. Don’t feel too bad about it. You’re not the only one.
Really? In which Bible might I find the Gospel according to Salvation?
Perhaps if you demonstrated more familiarity with Scripture in your posts you would have some credibility. I haven’t seen you do anything but post a handful of sentences. Perhaps you could present Scripture in excerpts longer than a fortune cookie?
Actually, this is a lie. We are very strong proponents of the creeds and confessions of Christianity and we’re also very strong on doctrinal accountability.
What are the creeds and confessions of Christianity? Where are they to be found? What is doctrinal accountability? How is it enforced?
And another lie. Protestants affirm the Nicene Creed.
Wow, you’re really racking up the “bearing false witness” points today!
I did lead the thread which determined that very fact, you know. And, as a Baptist, you might be aware that some Baptists refuse the Nicene and embrace the Apostle’s Creed instead, preferring the primitive formulation. Did you really attend seminary?
Actually, I just preached in an Assembly of God church about three weeks ago and we have an AoG preacher who’s taught a couple of classes at our church.
Okay. Did you preach on the Baptist creed?
I would also point out that there are many pentecostals who are Baptists and vice versa.
Which flavor of Baptist? My wife is an ex-Pentecostal; the Baptists here have nothing to do with 'em.
The only one I’ve ever heard of are the Baptist Distinctives.
I will let your fellow Baptists educate you.
The one in the Bible.
And where may I find the Book of Baptist Distinctives in the Bible?
Depends on what you mean by “top clergyman”.
The one Baptist clergyman alive today whose hermeneutics all Baptists hold to be true.
And you believe this is literal…why?
I don’t. Catholics aren’t fundamentalists.
Only if you assume that it is literal.
Fundamentalists who believe in inerrancy and literal interpretation of the Bible do.
What Protestant ever said we’re saved by scripture?
Try a search on the Forum. The sola scriptura threads are a good place to start.
Now, since your question is again insincere, let me predict your response: “Oh, they’re not a real Protestant”. We’ve seen it before; lacks even novelty.
It is up to you to show that we’re saved by works.
Would be if I said we’re saved by works. Catholics, as we’ve shown again and again, believe we are saved by the grace of God. So why do you lie about Catholic teaching?
- Christ’s Church is invisible—therefore, when Christ tells us we are to “go tell the Church” when our brother persists in error in Matthew 18, where precisely are we to go?
Another lie. Never said this.
You did. You claimed your congregation has grown to 160+ in one of your first threads. You listed the previous number, the new number. It was in the “Evangelism question” thread you managed to get deleted.
You strain charity, brother.
