  CHRISTIAN TALIBAN
A number of media pundits (analysts) are now comparing conservative Christians to the Taliban. Writer Kimberly Blake from the San Francisco Examiner is quoted as saying, "The irony is that the Islamic terrorists responsible for the September 11 fatalities are merely clones of America's own Christian right extremists, sheathed in a different religion."

After hearing Franklin Graham's comments on Islam, BBC news reporter Gavin Esler declared, "America's very own version of the Taliban [are] at it again." Gavin went on to name Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell as "two of the other top names in America's evangelical Taliban" (AgapePress, 1/21/02).

[Editor] Folks, how long will it be that America and her Arab coalition include the "Fundamental Christians" in their war against intolerance. Arabic intolerance is the cause of terrorists, while Christian intolerance is the cause of speaking God Word in peace and in love.  BUT-America is determined to stamp out ALL intolerance, peaceful or not.

Fellow Christians, those of us who "stick by our guns" (God's Truth)  are gonna be in fr it very soon.

Persecution for us is on it's way.  LOOK UP-the end is near.  Freedom of the True Christian Religion is coming soon.
**********************************************
DESTROYING LIVES TO SAVE LIVES
Republican Senator Arlen Specter has become an outspoken supporter of human cloning, claiming it could end disease as we know it.  He says the "enormous potential" for curing diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, heart disease, and cancer should not be inhibited on ideological grounds, and that to do so is "unthinkable in the 21st century."

Specter accuses pro-lifers and conservative religious people of clouding the issue with their ideology and biblical beliefs (AgapePress, 1/14/02).

[Editor] If one is lucky enough to be born, all will be done to give this lucky person a "quality" of life, but when all the medical benefits of cloned (manufactured) body parts fail, that one will be put to death because that person can no longer contribute to society and the medical costs of prolonging that life will be cost prohibitive.

Outcomes Based Education (OBE) teaches that the "quality" is much better for one than the "quantity" of life.  I KNOW, because I fought OBE in the Hico school system for two years, and then I had this auto accident in July 1995 and turned all my efforts towards this ministry.

I was involved in an auto accident that hospitalized me for seven weeks.  I almost died.  But after seven weeks in the hospital, half that time out of my mind because of a severe hole in the head, (concussion- the doctors were picking pieces of bone out of my brain)

A car pulled out in front of me from a side road unto the US highway I was traveling on and so it was his fault, but he was under insured.  I lost my equilibrium to this day. After hospital expenses and attorneys fees I came out with nineteen thousand dollars

Three thousand dollars of this went to the Lord, and Messengers of Christ Ministries was born.
**************************************
RUDY GUILIANI-ROLE MODEL?
Since June 2001, former New York City mayor Rudy Guiliani-called "America's mayor" for his firm hand in the wake of September 11-has been sharing an apartment with a homosexual couple. Since leaving his position as mayor, Guiliani has played a cameo role as a homosexual on the TV series Queer as Folk (Citizen, 3/02).

[Editor] The Sodomites and Muslims are having a "field day" but the Lord says that their time is coming when His wrath is poured out upon them.

  GLORY BE-COME LORD JESUS
***********************************
ANYTHING but Christianity
Students in California have been participating in intensive courses on the Muslim religion, which include pretend holy wars, pilgrimages, role-playing with robes and pretend Islamic names, prayers to Allah, and memorization of Muslim terms and teachings. The courses are part of an effort to fulfill state requirements for a social studies class on medieval and early modern history, approved in 1998.

Many parents are outraged. "This reflects a terrible double standard," says Ken Connor, president of the Family Research Council. "Anything that smacks of Christianity is systematically excluded in the classroom, but everything else like Wicca to Islam is welcomed" (Insight, 2/18/02

[Editor] I reported on this a few weeks earlier, but thought I would include another report. This is part of the "field day" I speak of.
**************************************************
DIFFERENT GODS-DIFFERENT DESTINATIONS
"Do we worship the same God?" is the title of a commentary by Tony W. Cartledge, editor of the North Carolina Baptist newspaper Biblical Recorder. He rejects arguments that Muslims and Jews worship "a different God." Cartledge says, "It is perhaps more appropriate . . . to think of Muslims and Jews as worshipping the same god, though not in his fullness" (Baptists Today, 1/02).

[Editor]  There are TWO gods.  The god of this world, (the devil) and the GOD of heaven. (Father of the Lord Jesus Christ).  There are TWO destinations.  HEAVEN & HELL.

The god of this world, the father of all LIES, leads to HELL, and the God of heaven, the Father of all TRUTH, leads to HEAVEN through the PERSON and WORK of His Son Jesus Christ.

The WHOLE WORLD is going to hell but for a SMALL REMNANT.

HOW SAD.
**********************************************
MORE COLIN CANCER
Secretary of State Colin Powell recently said that the international community must "forget about conservative ideas" about sex in its efforts to combat AIDS. Powell was answering a question from a Catholic girl in an MTV audience. Powell said he respects Catholic teaching, but "it is important that the whole international community speak candidly about it, forget about taboos, forget about conservative ideas with respect to what you should tell young people. . . . Condoms are a way to prevent infection, and therefore, I not only support their use, I encourage their use among people who are sexually active" (AgapePress, 2/15/02 & 2/19/02).

[Editor]  The more I hear of Colin Powell, the more I believe he is agnostic. I don't believe ANYTHING is important to Colon, but Colon.  Colon Powell, "at his best" is as bad as Bill Clinton  "at his worst".  AMEN?
************************************************
WHAT'S GOOD FOR THE GOOSE IS NO LONGER GOOD FOR THE GANDER. (old folk saying)
Pro-abortion forces are waging a campaign to shut down facilities that offer alternatives to abortions. In New York, Attorney General Elliott Spitzer has issued subpoenas to pregnancy centers, demanding they turn over information on volunteers, and even the names and addresses of women helped by the centers.

According to Wendy Wright of Concerned Women for America, Spitzer is demanding the information for one reason only: to shut the centers down.  She says Spitzer has taken no such action against abortion facilities (AgapePress, 2/21/02).

[Editor]  Shut us up and shut us down.  As for me, I'm gonna keep on keeping on until they come and take me away, unless Jesus does first.
*************************************************************
EVEN I KNOW
Clark H. Pinnock, a controversial "open theism" theologian, has written a new book, Most Moved Mover: A Theology of God's Openness (Baker).

The book is his "manifesto and apology," according to a review in Christian Century (1/30/02). Pinnock, a Canadian Baptist, writes that "the future is partly settled and partly unsettled, partly determined and therefore, partly unknown even to God."

[Editor] God knows, and even I know his future.  Unless he repents and comes to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, God and I both know his future.  HOW DO I KNOW?  'Cause God tells me in His Word. I don't know if he'll ever repent, but God does.

Isa 46:9-10 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

The Protestant Prayer of Jabez vs. The Roman Catholic Rosary.
By Andy Neckar

The Prayer of Jabel.
Bruce Wilkinson, president and founder of Atlanta-based Walk Thru the Bible Ministries wrote the book, “The Prayer of Jabez.  He once said that “If you were to ask me what sentence—other than my prayer for salvation—has revolutionized my life and ministry the most, I would tell you tell you that it was the cry of a gimper named Jabez”.

 

Folks, there is NO SUCH THING as a “pray for salvation”.  If ole Bruce thinks a “prayer” saved him from the pits of hell, he is STILL headed down that way. WORKS cannot save and PRAYERS cannot save.

 

Look at what the prayer of Jabez (1 Chr 4:10) is PROMISED to do for you. Bruce Wilkinson claims that saying this prayer REPEATLY will;

It will change your life

You will be extravagantly blessed by God

You will receive abundant blessings from God

You will release God's favor towards you

You will receive God’s power,

You will receive God’s protection

You will leave the past behind

You will break through to the life you were meant to live

Miracles happen to you and for you on a regular basis

Wilkinson claims that if we'll just pray the prayer of Jabez, word-for-word, every day for a month, then we'll see God's power released in our lives.

God says, not Bruce now, but GOD says; “But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking”. (Matt 6:7)

MY Lord Jesus Christ says, not Bruce now, but JESUS says; “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen”. ( Matt 6:9-13)

Let’s go through the Bruce Wilkinson claims of the power of the prayer of Jabez again. You folks take a look-see at what has already happened to ME before I ever HEARD of this prayer.

1-It will change your life
My life is ALREADY changed.” Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:” (Col 3:9-10)

Talk about “change”. WOW! “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” (1 Pet 1:23)

2-You will be extravagantly blessed by God.

Look what happened to ME.
”Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you”. 1 Cor 4:8

 “As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all thing”. 2 Cor 6:10

3-You will receive abundant blessings from God.

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:” (Eph 1:3”

 

ALL spiritual blessings in HEAVENLY places.  Am I ABUNDANTLY blessed, or what?

 

4-You will release God's favor towards you
A woman finds favor with God. “And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God” (Luke 1:30)

 

A man  (David) finds favor with God. “Who found favour before God, and desired to find a tabernacle for the God of Jacob”. Acts 7:46

I, too, have found favor with God through the Blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and NOT through any repetitious prayer. Got that?

5-You will receive God’s power,
“And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power”, (Eph 1:19)

Often in the OT, the standard of God's power referred to is the deliverance from Egypt, especially the crossing of the Red Sea. But here is a “much greater” standard of power. That very power of God that raised Christ from the dead is available to us, and we can know it in our practice.

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind”.(2 Tim 1:7)

The author of the book of “The Prayer of Jabez” is not of a sound mind.

6-You will receive God’s protection

Wanna hear of protection?  I will tell you of protection.
”But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.” (II Th 3:3)

“Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,” (Jude 1:24”

“And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” (John 10:28)

Now what better protection can I get that this? Pretty good protection? Huh?  What better protection that that of Jesus Christ my Redeemer.  WHO is Lord?  Jesus Christ. WHO will present me faultless before God?  Jesus Christ.  No one can pluck me out of WHOSE hand? Christ Jesus.

I HAVE God’s protection.  It comes from ANOTHER.
Jesus Christ, the SON of God SAVED me and HE will PROTECT ME.

See, NO ONE can get ANYTHING from God unless we ask in CHRIST’S Name. “If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. John “(14:14)

“Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.” (John 15:16”

You see, everything nowadays is about Jesus, and not God.  We can’t get saved without the Name of Jesus.  We can’t get anything from God without the Name of Jesus. BILLIONS of people believe in God and implore God for favors.  The DEVILS believe--- and tremble.. (James 2:19)

WHY Jesus ONLY nowadays?  Because God put everything under His feet until He gets a job done for His Father.

”For he (God) hath put all things under his (Jesus) feet. But when he saith, all things are put under him, it is manifest (clear) that he (God) is excepted, (on the exterior-outside of-aside from) which (God) did put all things under him.” (1 Cor 15:27)

See, God cannot look upon sin, but His Son DID look upon sin, and lived among sin, and even BECAME SIN on the cross that day.

2 Cor 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

God was OUTSIDE of all this.

1 Cor 15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
Death is still among us and will be throughout the millennium reign of Christ.  Death will not be destroyed until just before eternity sets in.

See, things are to be done IN ORDER.

1- “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.” (1 Cor 15:22)

2- “But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. (1 Cor 15:23)

3- “For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.” (1 Cor 15:25)

4- “The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.” (1 Cor 15:26)

3- “Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.” (1 Cor 15:24)

Christ will one day complete the Kingdom like God wants it to be.  Christ is working on that now.  He has been working on it for a long time now.  When Christ puts down the devil and his angels, and all Christ rejecting sinners, and all their earthly rule, power, and influence, you know what He’s gonna do?  He’s gonna give it ALL BACK TO GOD.

4-“And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.” (1 Cor 15:28)

Then what is Christ gonna do?  Well, He’s gonna place HIMSELF under God’s feet.  When Jesus Christ, the Son of God, gets ALL THINGS subject to HIMSELF, He’s gonna give it all to God, His Father, and subject HIMSELF to GOD.

The Protestant Prayer of Jabez vs. The Roman Catholic Rosary.-Part 2

Remember what Bruce Williamson claims is his book ”The Prayer of Jabez”?

These are some of the things the prayer will accomplish in your life if you repeatedly say this prayer he says.

Wilkinson claims that saying this prayer REPEATEDLY;
It will change your life
You will be extravagantly blessed by God
You will receive abundant blessings from God
You will release God's favor towards you
You will receive God's power,
You will receive God's protection
You will leave the past behind
You will break through to the life you were meant to live
Miracles happen to you and for you on a regular basis

Well, folks.  I would call this the “protestant rosary”.  After all, look what the Roman Catholic “Virgin Mary” promises to those that faithful say the rosary over and over and over.

Which is more powerful, the Protestant Rosary or the Roman Catholic Rosary? Judge for yourselves.

The rosary (from Latin rosarium, "rose garden") is a religious exercise where a defined number of prayers are recited and a string of beads (a chaplet, often called a rosary) is used to keep count.

Eastern Christian monks started the Christian practice in the third century. The modern Roman Catholic rosary's origin is most often associated with St. Dominic, founder of the Dominican order in the early 13th century. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, "it reached its definitive form in the 15th century through the preaching of the Dominican Alan de la Roche and his associates, who organized Rosary Confraternities at Douai in France and at Cologne. In 1520 Pope Leo X gave the rosary official approbation."

But, what makes the rosary special? The Blessed Mary herself gave us the reasons (as given to St. Dominic and Blessed Alan). Here are the fifteen promises of Mary to Christians who recite the rosary.

THIS saith the RC church.
Whoever shall faithfully serve me by the recitation of the rosary, shall receive signal graces.

THUS saith the Lord.
Exod 23:24 Thou shalt not bow down to their (Roman Catholic)  gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their image.

Matt 4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

[HIM ONLY, folks.  Not HIM & HER.]

THIS saith the RC church
I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the rosary.

THUS saith the Lord.
"But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil." (II Th 3:3)

"Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy," (Jude 1:24)

"And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand." (John 10:28)

[No thanks folks.  I want the Lord Jesus Christ who is ALIVE to protect me.  I am not fool enough to place my trust in some dead woman.  Don’t you know the REAL Mary, the mother of Jesus, is not happy with the RC image portrayal of her.]

THIS saith the RC church.
The rosary shall be a powerful armor against hell

THUS saith the Lord.
“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” ( Eph 6:11)

[Now read Eph 6:14-17 and see if you find the rosary anywhere in this armour.]

THIS saith the RC church.
I will cause virtue and good works to flourish; (2) it will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God; (3) it will withdraw the heart of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. (4) Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.

THUS saith the Lord.
Heb 10:24 And let us consider one another to provoke (rouse-stir-awaken-motivate) unto love and to good works:

[Virtue & good works come/flourish because of one another.]

Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

[Virtue & good works come/flourish because of relationship with Christ.  We are created/recreated-born again IN CHRIST.]

THUS saith the Lord.
Matt 5:7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

Rom 11:31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.

[Merciful believers in turn obtain mercy].

Heb 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

[Where do we go to obtain mercy?  Do we approach Mary through the rosary so she will intervene to Christ so He will intervene to God in our behalf?  Take a look at Heb 4:16 again.]

THUS saith the Lord
James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and HE (the Lord Jesus-not the rosary) shall lift you up.

THUS saith the Lord.
John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

Heb 13:12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.

[The WORD and the BLOOD sanctify believers.]

THIS saith the RC church.
The soul which recommend itself to me by the recitation of the rosary, shall not perish

THUS saith the Lord.
 “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:15-16)

THIS saith the RC church.
Whoever shall recite the rosary devoutly, applying himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries shall never be conquered by misfortune. God will not chastise him in His justice, he shall not by an unprovided death; if he be just he shall remain in the grace of God, and become worthy of eternal life.

THUS saith the Lord.
Heb 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

Heb 12:7-8 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

Rev 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

[You must understand that those that serve the RC Mary are bastards.  God hasn’t ever whipped you?  Better look out.  God don’t spare the rod and spoil the child. (Prv 23:13-14)]

THIS saith the RC church.
Whoever shall have a true devotion for the rosary shall not die without the sacraments of the Church

THUS saith the Lord.
Matt 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Titus 1:14 Not giving heed to Jewish (Roman Catholic) fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

THIS saith the RC church.
Those who are faithful to recite the rosary shall have during their life and at their death the light of God and the plenitude of His graces; at the moment of death they shall participate in the merits of the saints in paradise.

THUS saith the Lord
John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

John 9:5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

John 12:36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.

[Who has the Light of God?  The gospel believing chastened children of God or the rambunctious/disobedient repetitious rosary rappers?]

THIS saith the RC church.
I shall deliver from purgatory those who have been devoted to the rosary.

THUS saith the Lord.
2 Cor 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

[Where is the Lord, I say?  Is He in purgatory?  How ‘bout; THUS saith the Lord.]

Heb 10:12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;

[Wonder why those devoted to the rosary go to purgatory in the first place, if this Mary can deliver them?]

THIS saith the RC church.
The faithful children of the rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in heaven.

THUS saith the Lord.
2 Cor 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

1 Pet 5:4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

[The faithful children of GOD.  That Word is GOD.  That PERSON is GOD, not a repetitious prayer/rosary.]

THIS saith the RC church.
You shall obtain all you ask of me by the recitation of the rosary.

THUS saith the Lord.
John 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name,(Jesus) that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

John 14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, (Jesus) I will do it.

John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, (Jesus) he may give it you.

[In WHO’S NAME?  Since when does JESUS sound like Mary?  By the way.  THIS is what the REAL Mary says of herself.]

Luke 1:46-47 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

THIS saith the RC church.
All those who propagate the holy rosary shall be aided by me in their necessities

THUS saith the Lord.
2 Cor 3:5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;

2 Cor 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

[Sufficiency has no lack of necessities.]

THIS saith the RC church.
I have obtained from my Divine Son that all the advocates of the rosary shall have for intercessors the entire celestial court during their life and at the hour of death.

THUS saith the Lord.
I Jn 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:

[Bastards may need a celestial court.  Not that it will do them any good, but the children of God has, and needs, ONLY ONE advocate. I John 2:1 says Who He is too.]

THIS saith the RC church.
All who recite the rosary are my son, and brothers of my only son Jesus Christ.

THUS saith the Lord.
I Jn 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

I Jn 3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

Gal 4:5-6 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

Rom 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

[Well, Jesus the Christ WAS the ONLY SON of God, but of Mary?]

Matt 13:55-56 Is not this (Jesus) the carpenter's son? is not his (Jesus)  mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? And his (Jesus) sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man (Jesus) all these things?

Mark 6:3 Is not this (Jesus)  the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his (Jesus) sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.(Jesus)

[Believers are “not BROTHERS of Christ, but MEMBERS of His Body.  See, we are children of God, but Mary is not the mother of God.  She is mother of Jesus the Man.  She is mother of the Word Who became flesh.]

THIS saith the RC church.
15- Devotion of my rosary is a great sign of predestination.

THIS saith Andy.
Devotion of the rosary is a great sign that one is a bastard and of their father the devil.
