The founders were for the most part better men than you. You should humble youself. You're both speaking ill of better men than you who are dead, and saying things that are untrue.


"Better" based upon what?

I'm humble, I don't exalt myself above anyone.

How is speaking the truth "speaking ill"? What is it you believe to be untrue?


This doesn't even need a reply. Go back, humble your message with what is your opinion, that you "think may be true", and facts, while not attacking anyone who is dead or in general terms ie "those people" "mason run churches" etc. It hardly takes a "mason" to be an American who is a patriot.

I am hardly a mason, but I know you are wrong. At least if you follow Benjamin Franklin's advice, and be humble how you present your opinion, others will more likely listen to you and feel more like giving you what they actually know is true. Remember the sin of Ham.

It's interesting that many of the Founders were Masons, as were a great many who promoted the Revolution and then carried it out, yet the American Revolution is so often proclaimed to have been carried out by Christians divinely inspired to contradict Scripture.

Naturally, in Mason-filled churches the Founders are highly exalted, but what I find interesting is that in churches which don't allow Masons to be members will yet preach on the greatness of Founders and others who were Masons.

A professor I know in Arkansas is a high degree Mason and he acknowledges that their religious aspect is generic (not specifically Christian), but since he calls himself a Christian and so do most who are his fellow lodge members, he believes it's okay.

Yes.


Now I'll explain:icon_mrgreen:


A truly born again believer can be involved in any sin, sinful activity or organization. The Holy Ghost doesn't convict everyone of all their sins at the same time. A believer can be a part of something sinful and not have had the Spirit directly convict him yet.


Eventually, a believer should grow in the Lord enough and should submit to the Spirit enough that he will eventually be convicted of whatever sin he's involved in...whether personal sin, some sinful activity or involvement in a sinful organization.


Of course there is also the problem of a person so resisting conviction that their hearts become hardened in that area and no longer recognize the conviction.


There are many professing Christians who are also Masons. Some are true believers, some are not.


Ray Comfort - who got me on this kick of defining repentance carefully, doesn't believe that. I've seen him say that he doesn't believe someone is saved based on a sin in their life after being saved, in his witnessing. He's witnessing the law.

Ray Comfort adds repentance of sins as two things you need to do to be saved, not one (and he says - there is two things you need to do). And he doesn't believe people are sinners saved by grace.

Just for discussion sake: What if a "saved" person starts going to a Roman Catholic church, sincerely adopting all of its beliefs and practices. Is he still "saved"?


Interesting question. Not that my option matters much, but I would say if a person holds to Sola Fide belief, then they must say that even if a person becomes Roman Catholic they would still be saved. If one truly believes faith can never be lost no matter what they do for the rest of their lives.

As a side note: Catholics don't believe you should live in fear, that would be a loss of hope and faith. But a Catholic believes that if you turn your back on God (denial of God), that is when one losses salvation.
(sinning doesn't loose salvation, it can lead to it no doubt, but it is the denial of God that we choose hell)


This isn't true. Catholics believe in verial and mortal sins, and if you commit a mortal sin you lose your salvation unless you confess it to a priest (catholic) fast enough. They also believe that assurance of salvation - ie belief - is a sin, and also "believe" that babies if baptised are saved - but where is the belief in that? From the moment of water baptism, "belief" and faith has no meaning in a catholic setting. Believing has nothing to do with being saved. Being marked on the forehead by a priest is what has meaning in the catholic church. Paul says accursed is he that brings in any different gospel than the one he taught.
