We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

Did They Really Say That?!?

Taken up to heaven she did not lay aside this saving office but by her manifold intercession continues to bring us the gifs of eternal salvation…

Catechism of the Catholic Church, para 969.

I wonder where they find this in the Bible? Mary never had any “saving office,” nor gave us the “gift of eternal salvation,” nor can she; only Jesus Christ did/does that.  The Bible never even intimates that Mary was “Taken up to heaven,” rather she, like everyone, eventually died.  There is also nothing in the Bible which says Mary intercedes for anyone.  All this is made up out whole cloth by Romanist popes.

Thank you Glenn for giving me more bullets for an upcoming article. What does a blogger do when he collects so much ammo that they're afraid of melting the barrels?
