Dear Neville & list, Apologies, but I feel I must resign from this list - in the spirit of 2 John 1 v 10 - I cannot have any communion with folk who do not subscribe to what I regard as inviolable, Christian doctrines. Plus I am very busy, not retired, & some of the large number of eeeees are marred by technical problems [strange repeated symbols etc], & sometimes difficult to read because of a lack of paragraphs etc! I will only repeat what I wrote in the attached article, with my last eeee: *FIRSTLY : ANY doctrine that denigrates our Lord by insisting His sacrifice & ONLY channel to God, are insufficient; directly implies insufficiency, & His failure. It is "another gospel", & therefore "Antichrist", & to be rejected. For He told us: "IT IS FINISHED"! The Vatican's "co-Mediatrixes" & non-existent "Purgatories", where so-called "Mary" [Queen of Heaven], we or others even "expiate" our own sins, or literally pay for them, are simply unscriptural rubbish. *SECONDLY : ANY doctrine that downplays "Hell" [really, eternal Gehenna] is also a "doctrine of demons". The papacy has done so with its "Purgatory" & unscriptural, interventionist "prayers for the dead", & unscriptural division of sins into "mortal" & "venial" etc. This pope has also denied the reality of the flames of Hell [but not "purgatory"!], but it is not just excisions - but additions to scripture, that condemn any to "share" in the "sin" - as does condoning homosexuality/sex outside marriage/Interfaith [Vatican 11]. Philip.
