If the fold is the church of the world how would they be helped?

NH, my oldest opponent! How are you?
Nick, I am glad you talk to your Lord in prayer! I don’t want to crash this thread by getting off topic. Are you Catholic? Do you also talk to Mary, or any of the other saints etc? If not why not? You seem to think prayer is not exclusive to God?

Amen Kathi! Jesus said “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.” Lk 10:27
We should have the same devotion and Love for Jesus and the Holy Spirit as the Father God! I don’t see how you can give the same devotion and Love to Jesus unless you see them as equal.

You are letting your fears keep you from searching for a church that teaches the Word of God. That spirit of fear is not from God. Who do you think wants to keep you out of church Nick? God or satan? Follow God. No church is perfect but some are much better than others. God can use imperfect churches. Look at their fruit and value that. We all see dimly now…some churches see more clearly than others but none that call Jesus “Lord” and the Son of God who came in the flesh, died and rose again for our salvation and believe in the Word of God should be despised. It will do you good!June 20, 2018 at 4:20 pm #831230June 20, 2018 at 4:22 pm #831231LU,May wrote:

I choose to Boldly say I love and Worship Jesus as I love and Worship the Father God! 🙂 My name should say it all!

Yeah, you read the OP correctly! Thank you for your direct and bold response, Keith! That bold declaration is the evidence of being born again by the Spirit. Not many can confess that unfortunately. Your name does indeed say it all, haha.June 20, 2018 at 4:33 pm #831233
I came out of the whore of Babylon and her blasphemous insults to the God of Israel.
How about you?June 20, 2018 at 4:39 pm #831234
You may try to follow God but following his Son is an easier task.
We do not have to suffer and die as he did, but only need to repent and be baptised in his name.
Then we can be given a share of the Spirit – having the Spirit is what defines the church, which humanism imitates.June 20, 2018 at 4:44 pm #831236
Do you still need men to teach you the word of God?
That is a role that the Spirit is meant to have.

You are right that it is easier to relate to Jesus and follow Him and obey Him, that is one reason that the Father sent the Son who willingly went, to help us to relate to Him since He became flesh like us. He is the head of the church, the church gathers…find one. It will do you good!June 20, 2018 at 4:52 pm #831238
Do you serve the Father, do you also serve the Son? Unless they are together as ONE God, then you are serving two masters.June 20, 2018 at 4:54 pm #831239
Jesus began his life when he was conceived in Mary.
You have got mixed up with the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of the Son, the Word.June 20, 2018 at 4:59 pm #831240
Would you try to divide the Son from the Father?
What God has joined together let no man put asunder.June 20, 2018 at 5:02 pm #831241
The Body of Christ is one.
But you would offer options?
Do you follow Apollos or Peter or Paul?
