I have already addresses your petty challenge. It doesn't hold water so I won't waste time and thought making a new statement.
And Mclees our duty as the Church is to the world.
Christ called us the Light of the World. It is our duty to shed the light of the Gospel on the world. To immerse ourselves in the trenches of this sin infested world penetrating every gathering and bringing the knowledge of the Gospel to all mankind. There should be no corner where the Light does not reach.
That is the spirit and mandate of evangelism.
As i already stated
I said the world politics though necessary is always a part of the worlds corrupt system. It is antichrist and Jesus was not any part of it. Catholica said we must use every avenue to reach the world for Christ . Jesus said we are a light that shines in the darkness. As lights of Christ we dispel the dark You don’t join the dark to make dark light. There is a lot that is evil in this world. Did Jesus say become evil or join to it to make evil good?
The Lords mandate is to be separate from the world not in bed with it. Why do you always ignore his commandments. Evangelism was always a mandate and the church stood for over three hundred yeas with out being in the world politics.
What did Jesus mean "I pray not for the world" This subject of separation is from Genesis to Revelation. Without separation you can not even be saved. so what was Jesus being so emphatic about
The Lord's mandate is for us to be foregin soldiers charging through this world bringing illumination as the Light of the World.
Christ was saying that we are to be His
emissaries to this world
. To be His
ambassadors stationed in this world.
To be in the world and not of it.
Contrary to your lies, Mclees the Roman Catholic Church is not of this world. You know I whoop your butt with evidence in this matter everytime so when you step come correct. The Catholic Church itself was established by the apostles who were commissioned by Christ. Period.
Politics is a blanket term but I'm assuming you mean world politics and government yes? How naive. How can you assert a claim of antichrist over the entirety of the governing bodies in the world.
What does Written Tradition teach us, Mclees? Ephesians 6:11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Look carefully. Its not the "high places"
thats our target its "the wickedness in those high places"
. The "high places"
refers to positions of authority i.e. government. Government isn't corrupt just because its government. Government is corrupt when and only when it suffers wickedness to compromise it. God's firtborn son was the Israel and Israel became a soverign nation of this world. A kingdom with its own laws, police force, head of state, economy and miltary force. Israel didn't become corrupt just because it was nation that had international connections and a foreign policy?
The Nation of Israel was in the world but she was not of it. The exact same is of the the Roman Catholic Church and the Vatican. The exact same.
For that matter you're a protestant right? Don't you guys believe that in the new millinieum Christ will return as a conquerer and reign on the Earth as King before the final battle? Wait Christ is going to be reigning from an earthly "high place"
isn't that an oxymoron? If government is antichrist just for being government, regardless if the majority of its leaders are God fearing born again Christians, then how is that Christ reigns from such a place? According to your doctrine, based on a limited thought process, Christ being at the head of some world government woud be the equivalent of Him reigning from the throne of hell.
Do you see how your theory crumbles when you sit back and actually think. "High places"
aren't antichrist just because their "high places".
Their antichrist when wickedness is assimilated into them and Christ charged us to be soldiers against that wcikedness not against the "high places".
