      "Do what thou will shall be the whole of the law" - Aleister Crowley

      "If you love me, obey my commandments" - Jesus Christ

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.

      I have visited non-catholic meetings half a dozen times since being a Catholic. I don't go often, haven't been for many years now.

      do you have a love for the truth of the bible ?
      and how do you feel when words or doctrines are taught as absolute truth when they are in direct opposition to the unambiguous truth of the bible ?

      I do have a love for the truth of the Bible.

      When there is error in doctrine, I feel sorry that people can be led astray by the reasoning of sinful men instead of letting God be God.

      The good angels do the will of God and protect us.

      The fallen angels want us to fall away from faith.

      When I consider the responses I get in forums like this one from random folk from various denominations I am not encouraged to visit their denominational meetings. One cannot feel very encouraged when folk persistently set out to redicule one's beliefs. When I visited a Pentecostal meeting because I had promised a friend that I would when their new buildinng was commpleted I was met with two attempts to convert me to Christ (the assumption being that because I am a Catholic I could not possibly know the Lord) and was firmly upbraded for callinng myself a Catholic instead of a ROMAN Catholic because (said the speaker) "we're Catholics not you" and I was also told that Jesus isn't in the bread and wine of communion. That was more than enough to convince me that I would not be much interested in visiting again an Assembly of God (now called Australian Christian Church) meeting.
