Why would anyone become Catholic?

That's a good question, one that I have no answer to.

Red, you should watch the video in the original post then!

 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. Matt. 10:32

When does this confession take place?

At baptism! This is why we call on the name of Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. We are confessing the Godhead.

Only you can know how 'right' the relationship feels.  I too believe that Jesus heals and restores.  If your man has repented in sincerity, and if he shows obvious physical arousal when you are affectionate with each other (assuming you want to have children one day), why doubt?

On the other hand, if the answer to the two 'ifs' above is 'no' then there will definitely be trouble ahead. 

I've prayed for you.  God bless

Are you being baptized to complete your salvation?

Brother, I can say that I did.  Every NT believer has a more complete knowledge (a practical salvation that we enjoy living under the revelation of the new covenant) than any person had being unbaptized before the death of Jesus Christ; and I might add this: a more complete salvation of the true knowledge of the religion of Jesus Christ, than any person could possible have~having never been baptized into the religion of Jesus Christ....called by many Christianity.  Selah

The trailer is little more than a rehash of the same old cosmetology questions that I first saw way back in 1980.

It must be a very compelling documentary since many atheists on atheistic science forums I visit are very worried about this documentary. I hope this means this documentary exposes evidence atheistic scientists are suppressing. it is about time.

Quote from: John 8:32
One point at a time here...
 
 Let's address the idea that the Ten Commandments were the terms and conditions of ONLY the Old Covenant...
 
 Heb 8:7  For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.
 
 The first Covenant is that we call the Old Covenant.
 
 Heb 8:8  For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:
 
 The first idea introduced here is that the problem was with the people, it was not with the Law.  Second idea is that God will make a New covenant with Israel and Judah (and yes they are two distinct entities).
 
 Heb 8:9  Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.
 
 Again, the problem was that the people did not follow the Covenant, the terms of the Covenant (the Law) was very good...
 
 Psa 19:7  The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
 
 Rom 7:12  Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.
 
 Heb 8:10  For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
 
 Now this is very important to read this for what it says.  It is a direct quote from Jer 31:31-33...
 
  Jer 31:31  Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
 Jer 31:32  Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
 Jer 31:33  But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
 
 The word Law here is...
 
 H8451
 תּרה    תּורה
 tôrâh  tôrâh
 to-raw', to-raw'
 From H3384; a precept or statute, especially the Decalogue or Pentateuch: - law.
 
 God is going to write the Law in the hearts and minds of those who are under the New Covenant.  Same Law.  The Law does not change, the administration of it changes...
 
 2Co 3:6  Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
 2Co 3:7  But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:
 2Co 3:8  How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?
 
 The Law (same Law, the Torah) is written in the hearts and minds of those under the New Covenant by the Holy Spirit.
 
 God is consistent, He did not make a mistake with the Ten Commandments and then come to rectify the mistake.

So you believe we are bound by ALL then laws of the Old Covenant?
 
We are bound to make animal sacrifices.
 
We are bound to stone adulteresses to death
 
We are bound to keep the Saturday Sabbath.
 
We (at least men) are bound not to clip our beards at the edges.
 
We are bound not to wear clothes with mixed fibres (no more polyester/cotton shirts).
 
Men should all be circumcised.
 
We are bound to keep ALL the Jewish feasts.
 
If you plant a fruit tree we are bound not to eat any fruit from it for five years.
 
Do you really think we are bound to keep all these?
 
Do you keep them all?
 
Are they really a part of the New Covenant law?
 
Of course not. The law that continues into the New Testament is the eternal moral law. That is the law that God puts into our hearts.
 
The old Law that went with the Old Covenant is over.
 
As Hebrews says:
When there is a change of priesthood, there is necessarily a change of law as well. (Heb 7:12)

The law has changed

 

What you are incorrectly assuming is that because a law was good for one people it is good for another. That is not so.
 
In France the law is to drive on the right hand side of the road.
 
In England the law is to drive on the left hand side of the road.
 
If I move from England to France the law I am subject to changes. It is not that there was anything wrong with the law in England.
 
Moreover Paul; declares he is not under the old Law
To the Jews I became as a Jew, in order to win Jews; to those under the law I became as one under the law--though not being myself under the law--that I might win those under the law. (1Cor 9:20)

You point about the word torah is not relevant. It just means law. But for the Jews there was only one law – that of the old Covenant.When we talk about the law in different countries we use the same word – law. But we do not mean that the ste of laws contained on that overall term are all identical.Similarly we talk about Old Covenant law and New Covenant law. We use the same word law but that does not mean that the details are the same in both.

God will not determine your intentions concerning salvation, that's why He gave us free will.
Just the same He will not determine your intentions for baptism. You must have your own intentions or it's a waste of your time, useless.

Are you being baptized to complete your salvation? Then you are working for salvation, you are under the law and not grace.

Are you being baptized to make a public confession of the salvation that took place inside your heart? You are in Gods grace.
