Infant Baptism

October 21, 2011

Infant Baptism is discussed and argued about quite a bit in some circles. I, of course, was raised Baptist and taught that Infant Baptism was a man-made tradition invented by the heretical Catholics who abandoned the Word of God to follow ill-advised tradition. (Picture: My granddaughter Elizabeth Arabella Rose Ray is baptized.) But not all [...]

Guilty of the Body and Blood of the Lord

October 16, 2011

From Leonard Alt: “How could you be guilty of the Body and Blood of the Lord if it wasn’t the Body and Blood of the Lord?” In Lorraine Boettner’s book on the Catholic Church, he devotes a full chapter to speaking against the Catholic notion of Communion.

Is Mormonism Christian? a Cult? a Heresy?

October 11, 2011

However, Mormons have a serious problem [...]
