Candy did mention the Catholic issue a couple of times in today's response.
Well she obviously was picking a fight with me because she mentioned ME by NAME! The commenter didn't really ask her a question but rather stated that it was a conceited and hubristic display and surmised that she must be regretting it. Candy never actually says that she doesn't regret it, but I think that she has spent soooo much time on the firestorm that followed shows that it has taken her time and attention.
Well that's comforting! With Kelly's baby coming and homeschool looming for me this means we won't have to be on red alert all the time. (Not that we can't be ready to whip facts and information up at a moment's notice if we have to!!!)
I should reaffirm here that this blog will also not back down. We will continue to point out theological inconsistencies and the truth about the Catholic faith for as long as necessary. Incidentally, our answers to her side bar articles are in our own side bar! Each one of her attacks was thoroughly rebuked and she has never ever been able to rebut our rebuttals!
A I've also posted about New Age, The Emergent Church movement, Jehovah's Witnesses, etc. However, I have a special place in my heart for Roman Catholics, and love them so dearly.
You cannot love someone that you do not know. Candy does not "love" Roman Catholics because she does not know us, and she certainly does not understand us. Oh, certainly she has met her fair share of Catholics who were on the verge of leaving the church anyway. But she certainly has never met or gotten to know Catholics strong in their Catholic faith who could take her arguments on. And I think that has stunned and frightened her. It has also caused her to dig in her heels a bit like a stubborn child, "I won't listen, I won't learn, I won't back down!" This is a battle of wills to her, not an intellectual or even spiritual pursuit.
They are people who think they are doing God a service,
yet so many of them that I have spoken to (in person) had no idea that salvation is in Christ alone,
What we illustrated in our own com boxes last week is that they probably had no idea about HER very unique Protestant idea of what salvation is!
(Sorry, I couldn't find a MEEZE version of Catholic praise and worship!)
and that once one has accepted Christ's FREE gift, they are savED, not in a long, drawn out process, of "being saved."
That certainly would have been news to St. Paul who was "working out" his salvation with "fear and trepidation" as he "persevered to the end " after running the "good race!"
rejoice, because so many souls have come out of the RC religion, and testified to me that my writings had something to do with it. I saw a whole family's life change in just a 6 month period, after they came out of RC, and into true, saving faith.
A Please read this for an explanation why. I don't recall your comments, but I would guess you possibly continuously reposted the same thing over and over, so I banned you, in order to have peace in my comments, or you started your comment off with some derogatory, incorrect statement, such as "why do you lie?", or "why do you hate Catholics?" or something along those lines. I will freely tell you that when comments start off with such trivial statements, I tend to reach for that delete key, without reading further.
This is classic Candy! When Candy behaves badly it is because SOMEONE made her do it! She had a similar reason for things she has done and said to me.
A No. Having an article that quotes what the Vatican says, and placing it side by side with what the Bible says is not offensive and repugnant. I will not stoop to the ecumenical lie. People have gotten saved from those articles. I love Roman Catholics too much, therefore I will continue to tell them the truth - they need to know.
In the interest of truth we will continue to tell our side of the story because, everyone needs to know.
Well, we see you're not much different alright. For now it will continue as before and to coin a phrase, we are not backing down.
