This song is how I'm feeling right now about debates between Catholics and protestants. :) In the past on this blog I have had many conversations with Catholics and protestants and I learned over time that it isn't my 'job' or 'ministry' to call out Catholics, or any other believer, on their beliefs and practices. It finally occurred to me that I really don't know what is going on in other people's hearts, AND that I myself have beliefs and practices, or lack thereof, that are not correct. Also, at the same time I became more and more aware that the denominations I have been a member of also have some beliefs, traditions, and practices that are partly or completely in error. I believe now that the enemy, Satan, has been busy dividing God's people on countless fronts; keeping us busy arguing and accusing one another, when we should together be light and salt IN LOVE to the world around us. It breaks my heart that I contributed to this. God bless you.

I really enjoy the perspective of Dr. Gavin Finley of endtimepilgrim.org. His article The Deliverer is Coming!, as with many of his writings, expresses the idea that God is a storyteller, and that He is playing out an epic tale over the ages, which will culminate in the return of the Deliverer to bring to fruition a long laid plan of redemption for His beloved Creation. I hope you enjoy Dr. Finley's article, and that you click the links at the bottom of the article to read his many other writings.
