Quote# 120737

(This is the "welcome" message in the Modern Cults and Religions section of the Rapture Ready website):

Ex Catholics, Please share your testimonies of how you realized True Salvation with Jesus is not in the Church Alone of Catholicism and explain how you were rescued out of Rome by the real Jesus Christ.

I was raised a Roman Catholic and jumped through all the hoops of ccd, confirmation, confession, communion, etc....

One day I heard a man outside of Catholicism teaching God's simple salvation message.

I prayed a simple salvation prayer and internal/eternal changes took place.

I continued to attend the Catholic church for several more years but this time as an observer watching vain repetition.

I came across Campus Crusade for Christ and began learning Christian basics and the milk of the Word.

I proclaimed my Catholicism to them and they looked at me differently (I wish someone had the guts to take me aside and explain the cultism I was trapped in)

It wasn't until years later I finally discovered literature comparing and contrasting Bible Christianity with the Cult of Rome.

So now I save 'wasted time' for others who need to know truth that they can leave Rome for fellowship with our true Lord Jesus Christ.

Please share your testimonies from the cult of Rome to Jesus' true home.

(This thread is for saved catholics only!)

So you admit being a simpleton is the only way to experience Jesus? That putting in no effort and taking no pains is the only thing you need? What a lazy, ignorant fuck you are. What a lazy, stupid religion you follow you boil on the ass of humanity.

I think it's because they're Landmarkists who claim to believe a fake history of Christianity invented by James Robinson Graves in the mid nineteenth century. In it Baptism predates Catholicism as it claims direct descent from John the Baptist. It's also why they don't much like the Southern Baptist Convention (who essentially dismissed Graves as the delusional fantasist he was) or being called 'Protestant' as in their view the RCC split from the Baptist church instead of vice versa.

Rebellion against the authority you grew up with is always more exciting, as is religious extremism.

While Catholicism is not Christianity, and is therefore satanic/pagan (Matthew 12:30), Rapture Ready crowd isn't much better. They hold some heretical beliefs, like allowing women to have authority over men (1 Timothy 2:12-14) and rejecting some other Biblical doctrines. Real Christians pray that some of them might be of the Elect and will be truly Saved one day.

In the name of the Lord,

>solomongrundy:
Yet 1,600 years can hardly be considered "modern", especially if one believes the Universe to be mere 6,020 years old.
Anencephalics!

>Jerry the Troll:
What about Galatians 3:28?
"There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus."
Which, by the way, is why Christianity was so successful in the Imperium Romanum. Ungrateful bastard.

No, you left an autocratic and problematic but respectable religion for a cult. Look up Campus Crusade for Christ on Rick Ross's website of cults; the reading isn't pretty.

"I finally discovered literature comparing and contrasting Bible Christianity with the Cult of Rome."

Chick tracts are not "literature".



@Jerry
Why should we accept your citations as having any authority?

Doubting Thomas

So basically you left one cult and joined another.

I often identify myself as a recovering catholic. But I certainly didn't wander off into any other branch of Xtianity. Elvis has left the building.

Catholics moderna cult? 2000 years old is short compared to the 5000 years old Judaism but again.....

7/26/2016 7:59:15 AM

Yossarian Lives

They looked at you differently because they're a cult who have disdain and distrust for anyone not part of their cult. To them Catholicism is the enemy, and Catholics are essentially heretics to them, which is in itself cultish behaviour.

Question: Is Augustine a 'Real Christian' like you?

He must be, if you've used a quote by him.

Same with the not-'Real Christian' David J. Stewart: Despite your lack of proof that 'jesus-is-lord.com' isn't owned by DJS.

Or the fact that you claim Jack Chick can't be a 'Real Christian' like you because he is a 'Liberal, and therefore not a 'Real Christian': even though you've referred to his Chick Tracts site via links from such.

So is Augustine a 'Real Christian' like you: or not? http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=118291&Page=2#1935098 I hope you really are true to God and His KJV1611 and not some pseudo-Christian pagan who would be reduced to re-lie-ing on a quote by an early Catholic, and you are therefore satanic/pagan.

Oh, you just keep owning yourself, Jerkoid. >:D

Who authorized your Christian Bible, Jerry?

7/27/2016 7:43:26 AM

Dr. Razark

@Jerry

But why do you believe it?
The movie Fargo states at the beginning that it's a true story, also. Why do you accept one claim and not the other?

@Jerky

So many times have you said that 'Real Christians' like you don't debate others, and refuse to answer their questions.

Yet, you're doing exactly that with Dr. Razark.

Thank you for proving you're not a 'Real Christian' then, Jerko. And as he debated with, and answered the questions of, those Pharisees, neither is your 'Lord'.

You're therefore not of the 'Elect': because the 'Elect' wouldn't do what you have here & in other threads where you've contradicted your own rule(s). And as he did exactly that with those Pharisees, where does that leave your own 'Lord' in the 'Saved' & 'Elect' stakes...?!

For when Jesus himself is a satanic pagan, therefore...!

7/27/2016 5:53:12 PM

Razark:

First off your question is flawed relative to the proposition presented in my initial comment. The verses I referenced prove that what I said is true.

As to why the Christian believes the Bible, the answer itself can be found in the Christian Bible. Praise and Glory! The Bible teaches us that some people are of the Elect whose souls been touched by Jesus so that they have Grace. The Elect therefore have a spiritual knowledge of the Truth and they simply cant resist the message of the Gospels. Once they get Saved and Born Again, they have a personal relationship with Jesus and thus we know for an absolute fact that the Bible is the Truth itself.

In the name of the Lord,
Jerry

>Jerry the Unwitting Satanist:
Or maybe, "the Elect" are spiritually corrupted by the Devil so they interprete the Bible in a certain self-righteous way, inducing the delusion that they are the only True Christians™ and everyone else is misinterpreting the Bible because they are Satanists. Of course, their bigotry, ignorance and arrogance drives people away from Christianity...

And you still have not answered how Galatians 3:28 is compatible with your misogyny.

Glory to Ra and Ma'at! All praise Lady Bastet, beloved Mother of Cats!

"Bible Christianity with the Cult of Rome"

Lol I love this nonesense 'Everything Catholics say is wrong, we only listen to the bible! You know, the one that the Catholic church put together.
It's like saying you don't trust BMW, so you only drive Minis.

7/28/2016 5:54:17 AM

Dr. Razark

@Jerry

You believe the bible because the bible says the bible is true, and you know it's true because you believe the bible, and you believe the bible because you have some special connection to the source?

The problem with you quoting the bible at us is that we don't believe it's true. It can't convince us of anything if we see it as a work of fiction, no more valid than any other ancient book of mythology. You need to give us reasons to believe the book has some special truth value to it before we can give it any weight beyond the simple words on the page.


By the way, that whole "Elect" thing is just more proof that, if he were to exist, your god is an immoral monster that deserves no worship. You say that we worship Satan, and that god will punish us for not believing, but your god only selects certain people to give the true knowledge to. If this is so, your god is damning us for what he chose not to do. That's not a loving god. That's an abusive monster.

@Jerky

You keep debating Dr. Razark.

Thank you for continuing to prove you're not a 'Real Christian' then.

...or - as per your 'Lord' and those Pharisees - are you finally going to get rid of that bullshit 'rule' you keep breaking (as your 'Lord' did with those Pharisees: thus proving that he himself isn't a 'Real Christian'), and start answering everyone's questions.

1 Thessalonians 5:21 of your QJV says so, we accept so, you must obey so, Jerkoid. We accept it, therefore we are the 'Elect', and you're not. Prove us wrong: as per 1 Thess. 5:21 QJV. Now.

If your 'Lord' obeyed his own rule in 1 Thess. 5:21 QJV with those Pharisees, therefore...!

@Dr. Razark

And of course, you cannot spell 'Belief' without the word LIE.

Just the facts, ma'am. [/"Dragnet"]

...and speaking of Facts, how does Jerkipoos know he's one of that so-called 'Elect'? For all he knows, all we Atheists, LGBT people & non-fundie Theists are, and he isn't.

That's where 1 Thessalonians 5:21 of his QJV comes in, y'see, and as per No 'Interpretation' allowed, nor that other get out of being argumentally cornered card 'Context', as it is the literal Word of his 'Lord' - if it says it that way, it means that way - 'Prove ALL Things'.

His Bible says so, he must obey so. He wouldn't want to prove himself the not-'Real Christian' and not one of the 'Elect' if he didn't...!

How else is Jerko going to find more of the 'Elect' - certainly here in FSTDT - if he doesn't answer all the questions of we Atheists: to our satisfaction...?!
