Analysis of the facts by former Roman Catholic, W.F. White.
From White’s YouTube channel:
My name is WF White and I am so glad that you stopped by. I am a former Roman Catholic and I was saved out of that deceptive religious system all the way back in 1989. I must tell you that it is a miracle to be saved and born again of the Spirit. You will find that many of the videos on this channel expose the false doctrines within the church of Rome. We are living in amazing times and there is nothing more precious in this world than a human soul and that includes yours. The good news is that Jesus Christ came into this world to save ungodly wretches like me and you. Be Blessed in the Lord!
“For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.” (Romans 5:6-9)
This is extremely helpful. Thirty minutes of insight for us!
16 Thus says the Lord:
“Stand in the ways and see,
And ask for the old paths, where the good way is,
And walk in it;
Then you will find rest for your souls.
But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’
“The gospel declares what God has done for us in Christ. It is not about what we can do to reach him.”
Under “Creeds and Confessions” at Theopedia.com, I found the Cambridge Declaration in a very readable format. Theopedia.com introduces the Declaration in this way:
“Formulated April 20, 1996, by a group of conservative evangelical theologians and pastors, The Cambridge Declaration of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals is a call to recover the historic Christian faith. The Five Solas of the sixteenth century Protestant Reformation form the outline of the declaration.”.
“Evangelical churches today are increasingly dominated by the spirit of this age rather than by the Spirit of Christ. As evangelicals, we call ourselves to repent of this sin and to recover the historic Christian faith…”
(This isn’t necessarily an endorsement of all the views of these authors or organizations.)
