There may be some people who
might be offended by these
statements if they are of the
Catholic faith.

The purpose of these statements
are to reveal the truth and to
glorify our Lord and Savior
Jesus. They are not intended
to be offensive in any way.

God "Desires all people to be saved
and to come to the knowledge
of the truth", and Jesus Christ
is that truth.
1 Timothy 2:4
 


The Roman Catholic Church
is known to be the largest religious
organization in the world, with
over 1.4 billion adherents to its
doctrines and teachings.


There are so many people who
are being deceived by this
religion.

“Not everyone who says to Me,
‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom
of heaven, but he who does the
will of My Father in heaven.
Many will say to Me in that day,

‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied
in Your name, cast out demons in
Your name, and done many wonders
in Your name?’ depart from Me,
you who practice lawlessness!’
Matthew 7:15-23

 
The Roman Catholic teachings
contradicts the Bible repeatedly,
the traditions are taught and
practiced, even though they
are against the Bible.

They claim to be the church that
Jesus started, and that the
humble fisherman the apostle
Peter is their first pope.

But if that was true, then why
are they called ‘Catholics’, a
word that appears nowhere in
the Bible?
And why are they from Rome?

The truth is:
The apostles actually begin
in Jerusalem and then spread
to Greece.
And Rome was the sworn enemy
of the band of Jewish believers
that would come to be called
Christians.


Catholics are taught that God's
truth is found in many different
sources outside of the Bible.
That is a lie.
They teach that the Bible, the
word of God, is not enough.


Catholics often say that it was
their church that gave us
the Bible.
They claim this when they defend
their "Sacred Tradition," so that they
might support added Biblical
teachings such as purgatory,
penance, indulgences, and
Mary worship.


Tobit, Judith, Wisdom, I & II Maccabees
are just some of the added books to
form the Catholic Bible.

The Catholic church consider these
books as scripture.

They put these books together and
 are to be received and venerated
as the Word of God.


 
'For I testify to everyone who hears
the words of the prophecy of
this book:
If anyone adds to these things,
God will add to him the plagues
that are written in this book;
and if anyone takes away from
the words of the book of this
prophecy, God shall take away
his part from the Book of Life,
from the holy city, and from the
things which are written in
this book.'
Revelation 22:18-19

The Bible tells us to obey the
Word of God, to not go beyond
the written Word
.

'Now these things, brethren, I have
figuratively transferred to myself and
Apollos for your sakes, that you may
learn in us not to think beyond
what is written, that none of you may
be puffed up on behalf of one
against the other.'
1 Corinthians 4:6

 


The Roman Catholic Church is
full of images.

These things are held to be
sacred objects worthy of
high regard.


Catholics do not believe they
are committing idolatry.
They have been cleverly taught
to believe that they do not worship
these idols; they simply venerate
them.
The problem is that veneration
still gives honor and reverence to
something and/or someone other
than God; therefore,
veneration is idolatry.

Catholics are taught that adoring
of statues are no different than a
picture of your family and loved
ones, and feeling love and
admiration.
We know that no one worships God
by bowing and praying to a photo of
their spouse and/or children.

 
“You shall not make yourself a
carved image or any likeness of
anything in heaven or on earth
beneath or in the water under
the earth;
you shall not bow down to
them or serve them”.
Exodus 20:4-5



The Roman Catholic Church teaches
that after death, everyone who has
sinned will go to "purgatory", where
they will face punishment for
their sins.
After that, they are then allowed
into the heavenly kingdom, once
they have paid for their sins.

“All who die in God’s grace and
friendship, but still imperfectly
purified, are indeed assured of
their eternal salvation, but after death
they undergo purification, so as to
achieve the holiness necessary to
enter the joy of heaven.”
Catechism of the Catholic Church

Even as born again believers,
we will still make mistakes and
do something that is sinful from
time to time, because none of
us are perfect.
Only Jesus is perfect, and He
sacrificed His life to pay for all
of our sins, once and for all.

"But that you may know that
the Son of Man ( Jesus ) has
power on earth to forgive sins”
Matthew 9:6

As it is written: “There is none
righteous, no, not one;
There is none who understands;
There is none who seeks after God.
They have all turned aside;
They have together become
unprofitable;
There is none who does
good, no, not one.”
Romans 3:10-12

"He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was
upon Him, And by His stripes we
are healed.
"
Isaiah 53:5

God sent his only beloved Son,
Jesus as a sacrifice to pay the penalty
for our sins by death on the cross,
so that we may be able to live in
eternal life with God.


You can not work and earn your way
into Heaven, it is a free gift from
God.

'For the wages of sin is death,
but the gift of God is eternal
life in Christ Jesus our Lord.'
Romans 6:23

'For by grace you have been saved
through faith, and that not of
yourselves; it is the gift of God,'
Ephesians 2:8

No where in God's Word does it say
that people go to purgatory, simply
because it does not exist.

We are already cleansed,
declared righteous, forgiven,
redeemed, reconciled, and
sanctified through Jesus.


To those who except and put their
faith in Jesus, when you die,
you go straight to Heaven.

'We are confident, yes, well pleased
rather to be absent from the body and
to be present with the Lord.'
2 Corinthians 5:8

 
Purgatory was a pagan idea.
Virgil, the pagan Latin poet who
lived 70 - 19 B.C. divided the departed
souls into three different places.
One for the good, one for the damned,
and a third where the less bad could
pay for their sins.

The Catholic church teaches that if
you say enough prayers for the dead,
or give enough money, then the deceased
will be transferred from hell, to heaven.

Praying for the dead is unbiblical.
The Bible says that our eternal
destiny is determined by our actions
while we are still alive.

We should pray for and comfort those
who are grieving when someone
loses a loved one, but not for the dead.

The time to pray for someone is
while they're still alive.
God gives us the free will to
choose and have faith in God,
being secure in our eternal life
in heaven,
or we can choose to turn from
God and live apart from Him.

Seek the Lord while He may be found,
Call upon Him while He is near.
Let the wicked forsake his way,
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
Let him return to the Lord,
And He will have mercy on him;
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.
Isaiah 55:6-7

You can not pray or pay anyone’s
way out of Hell.
Hell is a permanent place of torment.

You can not buy your way into heaven
or out of hell with money.
You must be saved by accepting
Jesus as your personal savior.

'Knowing that you were not redeemed
with corruptible things, like silver
or gold, from your aimless conduct
received by tradition from your fathers,
but with the precious blood of Christ,
as of a lamb without blemish and
without spot.'
1 Peter 1:18-19

The pope, according to Roman
Catholic teaching, is the vicar
of Christ, Christ’s personal
representative on earth.

Jesus said there would be a
replacement ( helper ) for His
physical presence here on earth.
However, this “vicar of Christ”
is not a priest, bishop, or pope.
The only biblical “Vicar of Christ”
is the Holy Spirit.

“If you love Me, keep My
commandments.
And I will pray the Father ( God ), and
He will give you another Helper,
that He may abide with you forever
- the Spirit of truth, whom the world
cannot receive, because it neither
sees Him nor knows Him;
but you know Him, for He dwells
with you and will be in you."

“These things I have spoken to
you while being present with you.
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit,
whom the Father will send in
My name, He will teach you all
things, and bring to your remembrance
all things that I said to you."
John 14:15-17, 25-26

Although the Pope is the head
of the Roman Catholic church,
the Bible tells us that Jesus Christ
has all authority in heaven and
on earth.
Matthew 28:18, Colossians 1:18



The Roman Catholic Church is one
of the most dangerous religions
out there.


'And no wonder! For Satan himself
transforms himself into an
angel of light.'
2 Corinthians 11:14

The Catholic church teaches that
there is no salvation
outside the Roman Catholic church.
To say that salvation lies only within
the Roman Catholic Church is
blasphemous against the only One
who can save us, which is
Jesus Christ.

The Roman Catholic Church believes
that faith alone in Christ is not
sufficient for salvation.

The Bible clearly states that receiving
Jesus Christ as Savior, by grace
through faith, grants salvation.
John 1:12; 3:16,18, 36;
Acts 16:31;
Ephesians 2:8-9
Romans 10:9-10, 13;

Not only it is the grace of God a
Free Gift to anyone, but Jesus
Paid the Full Price for our sins.

"The Church affirms that for believers
the sacraments of the New Covenant
are necessary for salvation."
Catechism of the Catholic Church

The teachings of the Roman Catholic
Church is that a person must receive
the Eucharist along with the
other sacraments,
plus obey the decrees of the
Roman Catholic Church, and
perform meritorious works and
not die with any mortal sins.


They teach that it is better to give
alms than to lay up gold; for alms
doth deliver from death,
and shall purge away all sin.
That is completely false.

You can not be saved by works or
buy your way into salvation.

 'For by grace you have been saved
through faith, and that not of
yourselves; it is the gift of God,
not of works, lest anyone
should boast.'

Ephesians 2:8-9



The Roman Catholic Church teaches
that their priests are called;
"Alter Christus," which means
literally "another Christ."

The Catholic church says;
"In the rite of ordination the phrase
“Alter Christus” reminds us that,
although Christ himself is
present to his Church,
the priest acts as “another
Christ”

by virtue of his ordination."

"The priest is not just the cross,
he is Christ Himself."
The Lone Star Catholic,
March 1, 1959


"The priest is indeed another Christ,
or in some way he is himself a
continuation of Christ."
Pope Pius XI, Encyclical on
the Priesthood


"In the sacrifice of Jesus Christ,
the priest is a substitute of Christ
Himself.
As a result of his ordination, he is
a true alter Christus."
Chronicle of a Catholic Reform,
Summer 1995 Issue


'And Jesus answering them
began to say,
"Take heed that no one deceives
you.
For many will come in my name,
saying, 'I am He', (Christ) and
will deceive many."
Mark 13:5-6

"For false christs and false
prophets will rise and show great
signs and wonders to deceive,
if possible, even the elect.
See, I have told you beforehand.
“Therefore if they say to you,
‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out;
or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’
do not believe it."
Matthew 24:24-26


Catholic priests are also
known as the "persona Christi".

Someone from a Catholic church
writes:
"A priest is no ordinary human.
His soul is forever changed and
he stands in persona Christi, that is,
“in the person of Christ.”
He offers more than bread to
the Father at Mass. He offers his
very self. In a very tangible way,
he is Jesus Christ among us."


The Roman Catholic Church teaches
that all sins must be confessed to
a Catholic Priest.

No priest has the authority to
forgive sins,
We go directly to God through
our mediator Jesus Christ and
be forgiven.

Jesus is the one to whom we
are to confess our sins.

'If we confess our sins, He ( God ) is
faithful and just to forgive us our
sins and to cleanse us from all
unrighteousness.'
1 John 1:9


And it is very clear from God's Word
that Jesus, is the only authority,
other than God who can forgive sins.

Therefore let it be known to you,
brethren, that through this Man
( Jesus ) is preached to you the
forgiveness of sins.'
Acts 13:38

The Bible also teaches that we should
confess our trespasses to each other,
so we can pray for each other and
encourage each other.

'Confess your trespasses to one
another, and pray for one another,
that you may be healed.'
James 5:16


Jesus can save anybody,
regardless of what you have
done.



'Do not call anyone on earth
your father;
for One is your Father, He who
is in heaven.'
Matthew 23:9

As far as referring to your biological
father as “father”, it's not what Jesus
was talking about.

Jesus was denouncing the Jewish
scribes and Pharisees for rejecting
Him as their Messiah, making
themselves above others with
titles such as “Teacher” and
“Master.”

They looked to be called “Father,"
as if they were the source of
truth rather than God.
Matthew 23:1-12

Jesus alone is the author of our salvation,
source of comfort in difficulties, and
strength.
He is the only One to whom our prayers
should be directed. No one else has the
right to say, “Look to me to meet your
spiritual needs.”
Jesus’ warning against calling men
“father” is a caution against pride
and hypocrisy.

The Catholics call the pope 'holy father'
No one can take the title of 'holy'
anything, because only God
is holy.

Every time a catholic person
calls the pope "Holy Father"
they are calling him God.
The name "Holy Father" is found
only once time in the entire Bible
and it refers to God the Father.
They are calling the pope by
God's name.
It is blasphemy to call a
man by God's name.

"Now I am no longer in the world,
but these are in the world, and
I come to You. Holy Father ( God ),
keep through Your name those whom
You have given Me, that they may
be one as We are."
John 17:11
