    Be upfront, according to man; You were water baptized by a Catholic Priest into the Catholic Church, age 16 days.

    According to Gods WORD...
    People Baptized with the Holy Spirit ARE Baptized by Christ Jesus, AFTER the individual makes his own FREEWILL Heartful Confession of Belief: Jesus is the Christ the Son of the Living God.
    I highly doubt you made such a confession at age 16 days old.

    What does that have to do with ministering/teaching to all nations.....didn't Jesus tell them to go and make disciples of all men?...and so as Jesus made disciples of the 12 apostles so did He also tell them to make disciples of all nations in like manner.
    Mat 28 (NKJV)
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    ¹⁸ And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
    ¹⁹ Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
    ²⁰ teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."

    @Heart2Soul The Biblical church does have spiritual, truth-driven characteristics and some things just don't belong, right?

    Regarding local church activities, my mind keeps going back again and again to Acts 2.42: "And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers."

    Exactly Heart2Soul and that's what Jehovah's Witnesses do they go around the world door to door spreading the word of God as do the Mormons, these are the only two Christian denominations that I see walking around door to door spreading the good word of God.

    The people whom God accepts their worship. Jehovah mainly had individuals as friends early on, but with the establishment of the Law covenant given through Moses, Jehovah had an organized nation of people. He did refer to the descendants of Jacob as being His people even before that, but they became His covenanted people at that point.
    (Exodus 19:7-9) . . .Moses came and called the older men of the people and set before them all these words that Jehovah had commanded him. 8 After that all the people answered unanimously and said: “All that Jehovah has spoken we are willing to do.” Immediately Moses took back the words of the people to Jehovah. 9 At this Jehovah said to Moses: “Look! I am coming to you in a dark cloud, in order that the people may hear when I speak with you, and that in you also they may put faith to time indefinite.” Then Moses reported the words of the people to Jehovah.

    I am a seed planter, I gave you how God identifies the faith, logically from your attitude, you recognize that your faith does not meet the identity. Now you personally have to decide what to do. As you can see, it in all honesty was not our attitude, it was not us as you indicated previously, as seen in your written replies maam.

    I certainly am here to assist you in getting answers to your questions, as most likely your previous teachers were, simply feel free to ask, as you have experienced that is what we do Jane.

    I just asked you a question.
    You ignored it, and instead once again tried to sell me a car. Plus again making assumptions and stereotyping me.

    Stop.

    You are not helping. You are instead only repeating that same terrible loop that displays your faith as (pardon my frankness) horrible rotten fruit.

    Thing is though, Jesus told the apostles to do that. Paul spoke at length in 1 Corinthians about how people in God's Church have different responsibilities and likened those responsibilities to different human body parts for this very reason. Apostles are more educated in scriptural matters because they were personally trained and prepared by God to do the job, and are therefore better suited to make disciples than a lay member.

    You might think biblical government has nothing to do with ministering, but Eph. 4:11-16 says it makes all the difference between someone preaching the true gospel and someone preaching a counterfeit gospel.
    Telling someone the uncomfortable truth about their church is hardly "bashing". If that is what constitutes "Catholic bashing" to you, you might want to see Revelation where God outright calls this church a murdering whore that has spent its entire existence deceiving the world and persecuting His saints. God even went so far to call this church "Jezebel" in Rev. 2:20. That should tell you that God has some strong feelings about this church, and none of them are anywhere close to being positive.

    The day is coming very soon where the Catholic church will once again use violence to enforce its dogma, and people need to be warned about it before that day arrives. The Bible says a Christian is supposed to love their neighbor as themselves, and telling someone the truth about the Catholic church certainly qualifies if it'll help them see that church for what the Bible says it is: a false church that is empowered by Satan. Everyone who knows about its long history of sexual immorality, idolatry, violence, and lying can convince themselves that it has ever been a force for good just because it claims to be Christian.

    That's how I view the church to be as well.

    Some are called to go door to door...others to evangelize...others to teach and preach...we are all in unison towards the purpose of spreading the gospel by whatever means necessary.
