What? My Lord says:
Matt 13:38 "and the field is the world; and as for the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the sons of the evil one "
John 8:44 "You are of your father the devil , and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies."
1 John 3:8 "the one who practices sin is of the devil "
1 John 3:10 "This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother."
So then you are preaching a false religion. And if what you say is true, then children of the devil are your brothers, which would make the devil like your step-father or something. Apostasy!
Apart from accusation that was painfull and hurting for me to read, you raised some valid points, but I think it is the consequence of misunderstanding my message. Kindly note that we were speaking about:
1) about God as the Creator (of all things, visible and invisible...)
2) about man and mankind
3) about the Pope of Rome
4) about the papal office (with it's competencies as defined on 1870 at Vatican II)
5) about all Christians in communion with the Pope of Rome for last almost thousand years
6) about antichrist - the man whom will come in the last time and will rule the world, to whom devil will borow all his cunningness and power of deception
7) about anricrhists
, or advents
You rightfully quoted Matt 13:38, John 8:44 and 1 John 3:8 and 3:10, but they all refer to what man does, not to what man is
. Man is created by God, not by devil.
I'd say each and every one of us is paving the way for antichrist by each sin one commits.
Regarding the Popes of Rome, I bet I can add items to any list you produce about their misdeeds against us "Easterners". So, their sins do pave the way to antichrist as every other sin paves it. Sins of a powerfull one bear stronger consequences than of a powerless one.
Regarding brotherhood, there are my brothers in Christ and my brothers in Adam. Each and every man is my brother in Adam. Otherone's sins are my own only to the extent I contributed to them.
We are forewarned about the
antichrist, so I dare not referring to him
like I do any other man. But, suffice to say, it is his doings
that will make him such.
Now, what is apostatic in my attitude, would you point, please?
