    Yes, they pray, also, to their venerated past leaders. Which is necromancy. Praying and asking for help from dead humans. As you say, Christ is our salvation and our life.
  • Maria Morales
    Verse 12 says there is no name under heaven given among men whereby we can be saved. Mary the mother of Christ neither any other can save us and yet people pray to them.

    Titus 3:10, an heretic reject after the first and second admonition.
  • Wayne
    Those that deny Jesus is the only begotten son of God are blasphemers and heretics.

    Now 50 years of Bible study should have cleared up Father, Son, Holy Ghost. But being as it hasn't, 2 scriptures to help. John 8:28, words of Christ, as my father hath taught me. John 14:28, in Christ's "very own words", for my Father is greater than I. This is my Beloved Son in whom I am well pleased. If Jesus, whom some say, is not the Son of God, but God,they make God out to b a liar.
  • Irene123
    a disciple - It's plain to see now that - you have no use for God's word, nor Pastors - Heb. 10 25. If you had respect for God's word you wouldn't leave out parts of it - Matt. 28:19; Acts 2:38; 4:12.
