I am strongly opposed to Roman Catholicsim, and I have stated many of my reasons why, and why I could never be Roman Catholic. However, I have probably gone too far with some of my criticism. I say this because lately when I read some other posts on the RCC, I get kind of a bad feeling. I can't remember if I said the RCC is a false church teaching a false Gospel, but if I did I will stop saying it and if I didn't say it, I won't. Why am I making this decision? Because the way I feel about the RCC, I also feel about Calvinism. I am strongly opposed to TULIP, and I could never be Presbyterian. In fact, I am more opposed to TULIP than some features of the RCC. So, I'll just say that I believe the RCC teaches grave errors, and I also believe this about Calvinism. Both systems are within orthodoxy, so I won't say they teach a false gospel. I'll just say they teach a badly distorted gospel. But I have brothers and sisters in both. One more thing: The RCC is one of a very few large churches that is staunchly pro-life and pro-heterosexual-only-marriage. The mainline denominations are not. At this point and on these issues, we need all the allies we can get.
