    religion and races truly divide people every religion just keep claiming they are the right they are the way and no man can enter heaven unless you join the right path which is their religion no one seems to claim there is other religion out there apart from their own religion who can save people but that's impossible the world is big not everyone can hear the true preachings from God it's impossible that there's only one religion who is the only right way for God is love God is justice that's too unfair for others who cannot hear the right preachings of the words

    if that's the case isn't it more realistic if they can be saved without hearing the word of God

    How is it that a person today "hears" the Word of God? Must he have a written Bible to do so?

    "Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled." Matt 5:6

    But then is the Word of God only to be found in a book? Until the first full Bible including the NT was written and compiled long after Jesus in the flesh was gone from the scene what did the believers in vicinity of the land of Israel do with regard to the Savior they had known.

    Did they not still know Him?

    Was no one saved from the time Jesus ascended to hid Father until printed Bibles with the NT existed?

    Jn 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    Christ and his church are one! Acts 9:4 eph 5:32

    Christ and his church are necessary for salvation

    One church Jn 10:16

    God breathed life into Adam, gen 2:7 and we received this life from our fathers!

    Christ breathed on the apostles our spiritual fathers, we receive the new covenant life of God’s grace from them thru faith & baptism! Jn 20:21-23 Mk 16:16 acts 8:36-38


    Christian ritual of baptism:
    Immersion, sprinkling, pour pure water over the forehead three time with the words, I baptize thee in the name of the father, and of the son, and of the Holy Spirit! Ez 36:25-27 Mk 16:16 Matt 28:19 Acts 2:38-39 Acts 8:36-38 Acts 22:16
    1 Pet 3:21

    Proper intention: to make a new creature in Christ, to put on Christ, initiation into the new covenant of grace
    Matter: pure water
    Form: the words

    Born again! Born from above!


    'The Father has set his seal' on Christ (John 6:27) and also seals us in him (cf. 2 Corinthians 1:22; Ephesians 1:23, 4:30). Because this seal indicates the indelible effect of the anointing with the Holy Spirit in the sacrament of Baptism,

    Baptism indeed is the seal of eternal life." 87 The faithful Christian who has "kept the seal" until the end, remaining faithful to the demands of his Baptism, will be able to depart this life "marked with the sign of faith," 88 with his baptismal faith, in expectation of the blessed vision of God - the consummation of faith - and in the hope of resurrection.

    St. Paul tells the faithful at Ephesus that they have been “sealed with the promised Holy Spirit.” This is in terms of an indelible character imprinted on the soul in the sacraments of baptism and confirmation. It is not as if this invisible mark is simply decorative. Rather, through it, we are enabled to participate in Christ’s mission and in his offices of priest, prophet, and king. Eph 1:13

    Sealed by God eph 1:13 sealed by God (ez 36:25-27) in the ark of salvation by baptism just as Noah was sealed by God in the ark of the flood gen 7:16

    1 Pet 3:20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

    21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us!
    (Ark of Noah a type of the church, member of Christ and his church and salvation by baptism!)
    (Outside the ark of Noah none were saved, outside the church (the ark of salvation) none are saved!)

    Sealed in the ark, sealed in the church the ark of salvation by baptism!

    The evidence of true faith is humble subjection and obedience to Christ & His holy church!

    The rule of faith for Christians is Jesus Christ Jn 14:6 and His church! Matt 18:17 acts 2:42 1 Tim 3:15

    True Christians cannot listen to the errors of excommunicated heretics, but we listen faithfully to Christ, in the bosom of holy mother church, the only ark of salvation!
    1 pet 3:20-21 matt 18:17 matt 16:18-19 matt 28:19-20 Jn 16:13 Jn 20:21-23

    Truth must be revealed by God thru Christ to His church (the apostles Jude 1:3) then must be proposed by the church, (Matt 28:19 gal 3:23) without error by the Holy Spirit! (Jn 16:13)

    Christ and His church are one! (Acts 9:4 eph 5:31 Jn 15:1-5)

    Rejection of the one true church or its teaching is rejection of Christ and God!

    Christ and His church are one! Acts 9:4 eph 5:32 Jn 8:12 & Matt 5:14

    Dan 2:44 Isa 2:2 Micah 4:1 fulfilled in matt 5:14

    matt 16:18-19 shall not prevail
    Matt 18:17 hear the truth from the church
    Acts 2:42 doctrine of the apostles
    1 Tim 3:15 the church is the pillar and ground of truth.

    Faith ascents & never protests or rebels!
    Spiritual Pride protests & is always in rebellion

    The nature of spiritual pride is rebellion!
    Spiritual pride must protest, and must be right!

    Christ and His one true church cannot be right or my self-righteous personal interpretation base on spiritual pride and private judgement must be wrong, and that is unacceptable!

    Truth must be revealed by God, and taught by the church, proposed for our belief, we must be instructed!
    Matt 28:19 Lk 1:4 Acts 8:31 Lk 10:16 Jn 21:17 Jn 16:13 acts 2:42

    Nature of doctrine:

    Truth or doctrine MUST be Revealed by God And Proposed by the church for belief, not spiritual pride and self-righteous private judgement!
    Claim: “scripture alone”
    It’s really just the ugly repugnant pride!
    It’s no faith at all only spiritual pride and self-righteous private judgement!
    They Hope in creatures not in God!

    It is unlawful to refuse to accept a truth revealed by God!

    Matt 28:19 eph 4:5 Jude 1:3

    Truth matters! It is revealed by God and therefore CANNOT be changed!
    The church likewise is founded by Christ and therefore CANNOT be reformed!
