    If you are slandering seminaries by calling them cemetaries, you sir, are offensive. A call from God to preach is a call to prepare. Willfully uneducated ministers are prideful and arrogant.

    I call upon both you and SFIC to not take this thread into a KJVO debate.
    The OP was a simple question, and you both cannot be satisfied unless you convince us that all RCs are going to Hell.

    If you do not want to associate with the lost people of this world, have at it, but there are some of us that want to see people get saved. And to do that we must go to them, and take the good news of Jesus Christ to them.
    </font>[/QUOTE]I too fully agree. But first we must discern that their way is a false way.

    However that being said, there is an old saying; Don't cut off someone's nose and then give them a rose to smell. My pointing out the errors of the RCC is to put to light the fact that they are lost, but not to directly confront them with their false religious system. Jesus used the method of confronting people with their sin, and then giving them the Gospel.

    I have debated many Catholics and Christians that are close to Catholics who would rather say "I'm O.K., you're O.K." instead of confronting them with the one true Gospel. They are not their friends.

    Thank you for your post, tinytim.

    Many years ago, I went to a funeral at a Catholic church. A co-worker's daughter had died of cancer, leaving a husband and 2 small daughters. It was the first and only time I have been in a Catholic church.

    It was very different, and I remember the thing that struck me most was the prayers for the soul of the daughter. I remember thinking, sadly, "It's too late to be praying for her soul". During the funeral, I found myself praying for the Holy Spirit to convict the family of their need of salvation so they wouldn't have to plead with God for the soul of someone after they had died.

    I would not have missed going, even though I didn't agree with what was happening. It was a comfort for the dad and the family to see so many of the co-workers there.

    JackRUs, What i think you are saying is we should confront their false beliefs but do it in a way that will lead them to Christ..
    If so, I agree. But we can't just lump all RCs into a category and say they all are doomed to Hell. I know some that trust Christ as savior. The local Priest preaches salvation by Christ alone.

    The other extreme is what I am talking about..
    you know the type that confront people and tell them upfront,
    "You are going to Hell, you heathen, but I've got good news... I just saved alot on my car insu.....oops too many geico commercials"

    Calling people names is a great way to show them we love them. :rolleyes:

    And I've been thinking, would you go to a lost person's funeral that was held in a Baptist church? According to some's logic here, that to should be blasphemous.. I mean if he didn't want to come to church while living, why make him when he is dead?

    Just a side thought.

    tinytim,

    we finally agree on something in this thread.

    If they do not want to go to church in their lifetime, why carry their dead body through the doors of a sanctuary?

    Even though we agree with that small point I would still go to it if I were close to them.

    I hear Lester Roloff preach that point one time when I was growing up, and it always stuck with me.

    Please don't post fictitious information on this message board. NONE of the modern translations of the Bible are based upon the text of Westcott and Hort!

    Goodness. I cannot imagine NOT going with my father to his own mothers funeral, because they were mormon. I had been praying for his salvation for years, and had I not gone, I would not have gotten to pray with my Dad. I am very saddened to hear that a Christian shouldnt/wouldnt go.

    Fictitious? NOT!!! Most of the modern versions are based on the RSV which was based on W & H.

    That is a known fact. Even Smithsonian Institute will attest to that.

    Yes. My mother is a practicing Catholic, and I attend Mass with her 2 or 3 times a year.

    The only MV I know of based
    on the RSV is THE READER'S DIGEST BIBLE
    (Reader's Digest, 1982).

    BTW, THE READER's DIGEST BIBLE says
    on page 670:

    If you confess with your lips that Jesus
    is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised
    him from the dead, you will be saved.

    You could see how this would make daily life quite difficult right? Do you wear t-shirts made in China or South America? Are you consenting to outsourcing and the loss of American Manufacturing? Do you shop at Wal-Mart? Are you consenting to the sale of extremely non-Christian products at that particular store? How about Target? How about restaurants that sell alcohol? How about gas stations that sell products that are obviously contrary to the faith? The list goes on and on. You won’t pay respects to a loved one, but I bet you you’ll get your deodorant at Wal-Mart or your gas at BP. </font>[/QUOTE]Diggin,

    Not sure if you didn't see this or decided not to answer.

    Once again, where is the conflict between following Christ and going to a funeral?

    I think it is pretty obvious that they have no answer for this.

    And while you are letting the spiritually dead (even if how you insist on interpreting it) bury their dead, show the love of Christ to hurting family and friends by being there to support them in their time of sorrow.

    Amen!!

    Did Christ allow that disciple to go to his dad's funeral? My Bible tells me He didn't.

    So are you saying that all lost people should not have a preacher or church funeral?
