I pray that God postpones the day when we are united in one religion.
Obviously if all Christendom was united, it would be the mother Church that I claim to not be a descendant of.
I see all these devices to be inventions.
God did not ordain baptism as a way to get rid of original sin.
Remember who the Baptist was.
He was the one who wanted to take the ax to the root and kill the tree that had become evil.
We live with our original sin, as long as we live.
The baptism is a sign of our forsaking of earthly kingdoms and institutions and becoming part of the Spiritual Kingdom of Heaven.
I do not go for the idea that some people have an infusion of righteousness.
The Saints that I know about, in the Bible were fallible men.
We partake freely of Christs blood and we do not have to go to a sanctioned ceremony where the priesthood has the power to kill Jesus and offer daily
Jesus died once for all.
Do you want us all to become Catholics?
You seem to want us to go for all these peculiar beliefs.
I do not mind you wanting to enjoy your faith and you should be free to participate in it.
But I do not want to be converted into a faith my ancestors had to fight and die to be free of.
