Born again christian dating catholic
Let us not defile the Biblical term and theological truth of what it means to be “born-again” by such a despairing usage.
Let us not defile the Biblical term and theological truth of God’s sovereign “grace” by claiming the omnipotent power of God’s grace has fallen on sinners, regenerated them from the dead, opened their blind eyes, unstopped their deaf ears, and cult in the history of the world.
God does not: “You shall not make for yourself a carved image — any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them (including statues of dead saints, statues of Mary, statues of Jesus, crucifixes, & above all the transubstantiated wafer) nor serve them. Not participating in idolatry is a basic, essential, non-negotiable commandment.
For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of Our Lord is quite clear that idolatry is hatred toward God. When God says idolatry is hatred toward Him, we cannot say millions of Catholics actually love God and have a simple saving faith in Jesus while they continue to participate in Roman Catholic ritual and sacraments that are full of idolatry. idolaters must repent of their hatred of the one true God to be saved: Mormon idolaters, Jehovah’s Witness idolaters, Muslim idolaters, and Catholic idolaters.
We can’t claim a person is a “born-again Christian” while they’re at peace with and participating in that which blasphemes both Christ and His Gospel.
Like everyone else, Roman Catholics must come to adhere to the Gospel in a way that if far more significant than the “simple saving faith” that many ecumenical hearts want to lend to unregenerate, unrepentant, unbelieving Roman Catholics.
But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ. 1:6-10) “Now when Peter had come to Antioch, I withstood him to his face, because he was to be blamed; for before certain men came from James, he would eat with the Gentiles; but when they came, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing those who were of the circumcision.
As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed. And the rest of the Jews also played the hypocrite with him, so that even Barnabas was carried away with their hypocrisy.
Would we call a man involved in an ongoing adulterous affair a “born again Christian? Would we call a man involved in an ongoing homosexual relationship a “born-again Christian? Would we call a man who is yet a drunkard a “born-again Christian? Would we call a man who still makes his living as a thief steeling cars a “born-again Christian? If you doubt the veracity of that statement, please read Rome’s Heresy & Gospel Clarity -notes for evangelizing Catholics.
We can’t be that the miracle of regeneration has taken place, even our own, until we manifest the sure evidences of regeneration — repentance of sin (including the sin of participating in Catholicism’s idolatrous, antichrist rituals & sacraments) and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His finished redemptive work you will all likewise perish” (Luke 13:5). Due to the way the question is framed, every “Yes” unleashes a host of terrible ramifications.
As a rule, I’ve found that those who claim to personally know Catholics who are “born-again Christian[s]” have not asked their Catholic friends or family members the essential questions that left the Catholic Church, evidencing that they are indeed “born-again Christian[s]” by having repented of Catholicism’s many heresies and believed the Gospel, to fully consider and interpret their experience in the light of God’s Word.
I fear much of modern Protestantism and Evangelicalism would call Paul uncharitable and needlessly divisive for writing to the church of Corinth to rebuke their union with those engaged in idolatry: “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers.
For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness (Catholicism is lawlessness)?
