    ​This thread is too funny. Putting it in amusing oddities.

    It's funny that you ask that because sometimes he preaches so literally and other times he doesn't. It depends on the subject matter.

It's really not important what other peoples focus is but rather what my focus is. I want more from TOL than an argument and a handful of angry folks and I want the same from the people more closely associated to me. Like now, I choose to see your points on this matter as concern for me and I appreciate that you have this level of concern considering you really don't know me from Adam. It's nice, thank you!

    Gosh, that makes me an oddball! ....or you need to get out more. Well, don't get to thinking that I'm Catholic because I'm not and never have been. There's too much of that doctrine I don't agree with but I still consider them of the Body and will treat them accordingly.

    Non-literalists may claim to respect literalists but in my experience, there is NO ONE in all of Christendom they hold more deeply in contempt. Your pastor friend's joke is highly focused and targeted...but whatever.

    Not as Catholics, any more than any Baptist or Presbyterian will be there because they belong to either of those groups, or to any other. If anyone is there, it will be because they believed the Gospel of the grace of God, which Rome has anathematized. So...if all Catholics ar trusting what ROME says must be done to be saved, and since Rome anathematized, denied and replaced the Gospel of grace...no, there will be no Catholics in heaven. If any of them believe the Gospel of grace, it will be in spite of Rome, not because of it, so the phrasing of your question is inaccurate.
    The criteria is faith in God and Yeshua and fruit of the Ruach, not belief in the "Gospel of grace". And you're right, it doesn't matter if one is Catholic or of any other Christian faith expression.

No judging is involved, it's simply comparing what they believe with what the Bible already says.
    Right in a way and wrong in another. A person's testimony to God, Yeshua and Ruach HaKodesh manifested in their lives is proof of their faith and the judging of their hearts and rewards accordingly belongs solely to God and Yeshua. I don't know anyone who testifies to the evil God has done in their lives and that is what that verse is about, recognizing evil by the evil coming from them.

    Do you still speak in tongues?

    Just curios.

    You might want to clarify which Church of God denomination. The Anderson, IN based one does not do that.

    The one I attended with one of my best friends in high school, called itself an Assembly of God and they were Oneness Pentecostals and were anti-trinitarian.

    I dont know the particulars of what if any larger group they belonged to or didnt belong to, i just know what the church called itself, and it was the town name, plus the name assembly of God.

    Don't remember which brand of CoG they were or if I ever knew. All I know is what they said and at the time I had no idea there's more than one.
