The Catholic Church Is Of The Devil
By David J. Stewart | October 2019
Titus 1:9-11 and 13, “Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. ...This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith.”
There's not a more damnable religion in the world than the demonic Catholic Church. This includes BOTH the Roman Catholic religion headquartered in Vatican City, Rome; and the Russian Orthodox Catholic church headquartered in Moscow, Russia. There's not a dime's difference between the two religions, as far as Catholicism is concerned. Both branches of Catholicism worship Mary, idolize their sinful priests, teach sacraments for salvation, and are an ungodly prisonhouse of religion!
May I say, kindly but truthfully, Mary (Jesus' biological mother) was a dirty, rotten, hell-deserving sinner! Mary needed to trust Jesus as her Savior too, or she would have burned in Hell forever, where all Christ-rejecters go!
If you type the following words into Google's search engine (using parenthesis, to find the exact quote): “The Catholic church is of the Devil,” of the 11 results that come back, the first three results are from my ministry websites. And of the 11 results, my ministry websites come up 5 times. That is sad! Oh, I think it is great that my websites come up first. In fact, I think that's pretty cool! What makes me sad is that other Christians are not contending for the faith. If you add the word “Baptist” outside of the parenthesis, my websites appear in 6 of the 11 results. I think that is tragic! I really do. Why aren't Christians exposing the cult of Catholicism? Oh, I understand that there are other existing articles and websites exposing the Catholic religion, but I find it disturbing that the phrase, “THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS OF THE DEVIL,” to be so unpopular among Christians today. The phrase “OF THE DEVIL” appears 17 times in the New Testament of the King James Bible. The English Standard Version (ESV) promoted and sold by Bob Jones University reduces it down to only 7 times. The ungodly corrupt New International Version (NIV) reduces mention of that key phrase down to only 5 times. And the bastardized satanic Easy-To-Read Version (ERV) promoted, used and sold by the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam mentions “OF THE DEVIL” only ONE TIME!!! Need I say more? These corrupt Bible versions are OF THE DEVIL, as is the reprobate SATANIC CATHOLIC RELIGION!!!
Why don't Christians care? Where are the churches in the battle against the satanic cult of Roman Catholicism? And don't you dare tell me that the internet is not the responsibility of the churches, because tens of thousands of churches advertise and beg for money on the internet! They problem is that we have our priorities wrong in the churches today! I am especially talking to independent fundamental Baptists! Where are my brethren? “It's Time To Come Out Of The Closet” (a needful MP3 sermon by Pastor Jack Hyles; The Bible's under attack—where are the 7,000 faithful Christians today who have not bowed their knee to Baal?). I think it is tragic and sad that Baptist churches today only seem to be concerned about money. The “LOVE OF MONEY” has absolutely destroyed our churches!!! 1st Timothy 6:10, “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” Jesus plainly warned that NO MAN can serve God and mammon (money). Luke 16:13, “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” You can identify which churches have the wrong master, by weighing the balance between their pursuit of TRUTH versus MONEY! I didn't say to see whether they are helping orphans. I didn't say to see whether they are providing youth activities with paintball guns, jet-skiing and a weekend cookout getaway. I said to see whether they are preaching THE TRUTH!!!
Beware of 'The Penguin' That Will Take You to Hell Forever!
So what is so wrong with the Catholic church? Mark 7:7-9, “Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.” I could spend hours expounding you dear friend in the lies, deceits and evils of the Catholic religion. Jesus warned everyone again in Matthew 15:7-9, “Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” Dear reader, have you been deceived by the Devil? The Lord warned that no one can worship God through the TRADITIONS of men. The Bible says you are worshipping God in vain!
I always laugh when I see a nun dressed in her religious garb, reminding me of the 1978 classic movie filmed on scene in Chicago called, “The Blues Brothers” with comedian actors John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd. In the movie they call the tough nun (who beat them in Catholic school as youths), “THE PENGUIN.” You've got to admit that nuns do look like penguins! I think that is funny. Listen to this creepy dead chant, which Catholic children are taught and required by nuns to repeat tens of thousands of times throughout their youth! In fact, a child is required to chant “HAIL MARY!” 200 times per Rosary. Multiple that times 365 Rosaries a year and that is 73,000 “HAIL MARYS!” In a lifetime of 50 years that amounts to $3,650,000 “HAIL MARYS!” And if you can imagine it in the dark recesses of your mind, some Catholics even pray up to 5 Rosaries per day! Isn't that terrible? WHAT A WASTE OF HUMAN LIFE!!!
What saith the Scripture? James 4:6-8, “But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.” Oh dear friend, God is a person just like you and I. We were created in the very image of God. That means God is like humans. Genesis 1:27, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” God loves when we communicate with Him through prayer, just like we desire fellowship. Revelation 5:8, “And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.” God gets grieved, just like we do. Ephesians 4:30, “And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.” God needs and wants to be loved, just like we do. I enjoy knowing that God enjoys when I spend time with Him in fellowship!!! That's a great statement, humbly.
Proverbs 16:7, “When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.” Do our ways please the Lord? Echoing some dead words in a religious chant does NOT please God. Matthew 6:7, “But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.” Not only does the Lord Himself command us not to pray “VAIN REPETITIONS,” but he explains the foolishness of thinking that God is somehow pleased by “MUCH SPEAKING.” God is not pleased when Catholics mumble “HAIL MARY!” 200 times in a Rosary. THAT IS BIG TIME FALSE RELIGION!!! It is hard to imagine that anyone could fall for such demonic deception! In the first place, if you are not a genuinely born-again believer, even your prayers are an abomination to God. Proverbs 28:9, “He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.” YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN! (John 3:7). Second, God enjoys time spent with His children, not hearing you chant “HAIL MARY!” in vain repetitions. Anyone who encourages praying the Rosary is inspired by demons!! GOD HATES THE ROSARY!!! There is absolutely NOTHING in the inspired Words of God to support such wickedness as praying a Rosary, it is false religion. I tell you with all certainty and biblical authority that THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS OF THE DEVIL!!!!!!
Beware of Catholic nuns, who serve the Devil by serving the demonic cult of Catholicism. I mean no disrespect nor ill-intent toward any human being. We are all struggling human beings sharing the same planet. I am fully against being unkind to someone because of their contrary religious beliefs. Above all else, we must love everybody with God's unconditional love. Jude 1:22, “And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.” Albeit, having compassion does not mean staying silent about Satan's lies, deceptions and falsehoods. In fact, the oppossite is true. If we really love somebody, then we will TELL THEM THE TRUTH!!!
You know, there are an estimated 20 million Seventh-Day Adventists in the world. There are an estimated 8 million Jehovah's Witnesses. There are 16 million Mormons in the world. There are 2 million Church of Christ members in the world. But there are a staggering 1.3 BILLION Roman Catholics in the world. That means there are approximately 30 times more Catholics than all these aforementioned false religions combined!!! My point being, we need to expose the Catholic religion! Christian pastors have a responsibility to refute Satan's works of darkness. Ephesians 5:11, “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”
The Pain of Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places
I don't care if you are a witch, Satanist, atheist or a Bob Jones University graduate, I am going to treat you with respect and love you as a person for whom Christ died on the cross! I know the painful feeling of being in love with a Christian woman (as a single man), to whom I have expressed my heartfelt feelings, but she doesn't want me; rejection hurts! I only wish I could somehow open my heart, and take my feelings and put them into her heart, so she could feel my soul's love, and understand the depth of my passion, and know what she means to me. Have you ever felt that way?
Yet, I know there is no way humanely possible that I could ever get as close to a woman that I love, as I wish I could (marriage would be nice). The physical relationship is not as close as the soul tie between two lovers, if they are truly in love. Unfortunately, I do not have a woman for a soulmate, and it is a pain of my existence. No one should be alone in life. Yet, I count my many blessings and do not complain. Lord willing, if He answers my prayer, one day I'll find a woman to become my wife, who loves me with the same passion that I love. 2nd Corinthians 12:15, “And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved. But thankfully, I know in my heart that this is exactly why God chose to live in my very soul as His child. ONLY GOD can love me with the depth of passion by which I love, because that passionate love (that I love with) is God's unconditional love! John 14:23, “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” John 15:5, “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” Don't miss that truth—“HE THAT ABIDETH IN ME, AND I IN HIM.”
So if I ever want to be loved the way that I love, then I need a Christian wife who is filled with the Holy Spirit. It is God's love that I crave in a wife, that I don't receive, and it is a lonely feeling. Most husbands don't receive God's love, and most wives don't receive God's love, because neither of them walk in the Spirit. Pastor Jack Hyles preached a wonderful MP3 sermon called, “THOU SHALT COVET” (The Gifts Of The Spirit Aren't Given TO ME, But THROUGH ME To Give To YOU). Marriages only fail because couples don't walk with God. No wife would ever file for divorce if she walked in the Holy Spirit. Galatians 5:16, “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” Only a believer can walk in the Spirit, because an unsaved person doesn't have the Holy Spirit. Galatians 5:25, “If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.” One of the attributes of the “FRUIT” of the Spirit is love. Galatians 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.”
Proverbs 18:22, “Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtained favour of the LORD.” My heart's desire is to find a Christian wife who loves God, because then I know she will love me, not divorce me. Proverbs 31:10-12, “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.” Unfortunately, even in the churches such women seem to have become extinct. I am ready to go home to be with the Lord. Philippians 1:21, “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” Seven Reasons Why I Want To Go To Heaven (by Pastor Danny Castle; I'm so sick of this sinful world!!!).
Earnestly Refuting Satanic Catholic Heresy With the Holy Bible
Kindly, I found this typical explanation by “THE CATHOLIC STAND” in a blog, attempting to defend the woeful sins of chanting the blasphemous Rosary (which audio clip I just shared with you), repeating vain repetitious chants (what they erroneously call “prayer”), and worshipping idols. This is exactly what Jesus condemned in Mark 7:7-9, rejecting the plain COMMANDMENTS OF GOD to keep manmade TRADITIONS. I am going to interject my Bible-based comments as we go, throughout this lengthy troublesome quote...
Many Catholics, non-Catholics, and especially anti-Catholics, say that the rosary is a repetitious prayer which directly violates the following directive from Jesus in the gospel of Matthew, verse 6:7, "But when you pray, use not vain repetitions as the heathen do; for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking."
Catholics often take pause after reading that verse. After all, when we pray the rosary, we are clearly repeating prayers over and over again. To make it more complicated, Pope John Paul II added five new mysteries to the ancient rosary in 2002. Now, to say an entire rosary with all the mysteries, we must repeat the Hail Mary at least 200 times, not to mention the Our Father, Glory Be, and Fatima Prayer.
Another area of concern is that the words of the prayers seem to exalt and worship Mary, rather than our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Mary is not God, and therefore should not be worshiped as such. Again, Catholics contemplate this argument with a degree of discomfort. Yes, we do seem to exalt Mary when we pray the Hail Mary, and many times even in front of a statue!
As you just read, the author of this blog admits that the Rosary is a seemingly endless repetition of words. In each Rosary, a Catholic is required to mumble through the “Hail Mary!” mumbo-jumbo 200 times, which takes about 20 minutes. Multiple this times 365 days a year and you have spent 7,300 minutes a year chanting (or 121 hours). During 50 years of one's life, this amounts to over 6,000 hours of VAIN REPETITIONS! The unsaved religious writer of this blog continues, attempting to justify these sins...
So, why is the rosary still a stronghold in the Catholic Church? Why has the rosary stood the test of time for at least eight hundred years since it originated from Spanish theologian St. Dominic, c. 1170-1221? Don't Catholics read the bible? What about the statues?
To begin with, the rosary is not a prayer of words, but of meditation. When a Catholic completes praying an entire rosary of 20 mysteries, he or she has meditated upon the entire gospel; the incarnation, birth, life, suffering, death, resurrection, and glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. No method of prayer is more beneficial than this. Most Catholics will pray five mysteries per day, and when saying the words, he or she must meditate upon one mystery at a time; for the duration of 10 Hail Marys, before going on to the next "mystery," or meditation. The memorized words are the vehicle by which Catholics are able to keep their minds on the gospel stories.
Do you see how The Catholic Stand did a bait and switch? They first admit the evils of Roman Catholic pagan practices, and now attempt to justify those sinful practices. The last paragraph I quoted to you by The Catholic Stand is unbiblical. It is not true that praying a complete Rosary covers the “entire gospel.” Catholics don't even know what “THE GOSPEL” is, adding everything but the kitchen sink to it! The Gospel is Jesus' DEATH on the cross, BURIAL, and bodily RESURRECTION three days later (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). Human effort (works) is totally excluded from the Gospel. So where do Catholics get the Seven Sacraments? For example: Catholics require the sacrament of water baptism for salvation! They also require partaking of the Eucharist sacrament to be saved. The word “sacrament” is not even found in the Bible. There are no sacraments! Sacraments are unbiblical. They dishonestly say, “The memorized words are the vehicle by which Catholics are able to keep their mind on the gospel stories.” What gospel stories? Why not just read the Holy Bible? Are you buying into this utter nonsense from The Catholic Stand? The truth is that reciting the Rosary is Satan's way of indoctrinating impressionable children with false religion. From the cradle-to-the-casket, the Vatican has a religious package for you!
Also, notice that they falsely say, “No method of prayer is more beneficial than this.” What a big lie! First, chanting a bunch of words in a Rosary is not biblical praying! Second, if by “beneficial” they mean brainwashing a child into the Catholic cult, then I fully agree.
The following words are sickening. They actually try to lead the reader to accept the crazy notion that somehow repeating the Rosary 200 times a day is reinforcing the Gospel truth into someone's mind. Nothing could be further from THE TRUTH! ...
Secondly, why do Catholics seem to exalt Mary as they recite the Hail Mary over and over again? Actually, when we seem to be exalting Mary, what we're really doing is quoting the gospel verse Luke 1:28 when the Angel Gabriel salutes Mary, "Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you, blest are you among women!" This greeting is repeated to her a second time in Luke 1:41-42 when an expectant Mary visits her pregnant cousin Elizabeth in Judea. At Mary's approach, the unborn child within Elizabeth leaps, and she exclaims, "Blest are you among women, and blest is the fruit of your womb!" In other words, blessed is the child within you. That child is Jesus.
In the remainder of the Hail Mary prayer, Catholics ask Mary to pray for them now, and at the hour of death. Catholics often ask Mary to approach her Son Jesus for their petitions. Consider the gospel story, "The Wedding Feast at Cana," in John 2:3-11. Jesus heeds Mary's request and miraculously produces excellent wine for the wedding guests. Here, Jesus performs His first public miracle, revealing His glory through the intercession of His Mother, Mary. Being ever faithful to God in heaven, Jesus obeys the commandment that says, "Honor thy father and mother." He does so in an exemplary way.
In 1 Corinthians 11:1 Paul writes, "Imitate me, then, just as I imitate Christ." Therefore, if we are to imitate Jesus, then we too honor the woman Jesus gave to us with his dying breath when He said to John, "Behold thy mother," and to Mary, "Behold thy son," John 19: 25-27. The key word is "honor," and not "worship."
What gross theological deception! The Catholic Stand is saying that we honor Jesus by following His example, when He commissioned His friend, the apostle John (the disciple whom Jesus loved) to take care of His mother. That is nutty! Jesus made seven statements on the cross. Only one of those statements was capitalized, when the Lord asked John to take care of His Mom! But to take that basic essential family need and responsibility, and turn it into a religion of worshipping the sinister Queen of Heaven, is idolatry and wickedness. Jeremiah 7:17, “The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.” Mary was a sinner, who died because of her sins, and only went to Heaven because Jesus paid for her sins on the cross! That is the same reason that all men die, and the only reason by which anyone will ever be born-again and go to Heaven!
If you think about what Catholics teach and do, it is insane! I mean, Jesus was simply concerned about making sure His mother was cared for after He died. That is what a good man does! For Catholics to twist that normal duty of a man, and turn it into a diabolical Satanic religion of bowing to statues of Mary, praying Rosaries to her for over 6,000 hours in a lifetime, and saturating one's mind with Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, is OF THE DEVIL!!! Only a fool would embrace Catholicism over God's Word!!!
What saith the Scripture? 1st Timothy 2:5, “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” Mary is NOT a mediator! Jesus is the ONLY mediator between God and men! It is wickedness, and gross theological incompetence, and a lie of the Devil, for Catholics to teach that anyone should pray to Mary instead of directly to God almighty! Catholics pervert the Scriptures, corrupting THE TRUTH, in an effort to bolster their false teachings.
Finally, what about the statues? The simple answer is that the statues of any saint, not just Mary, are not objects of worship in themselves, but reminders for people to help them focus their minds as they pray. Think about the last time you looked at a photo of your children and said a loving, sincere prayer for their well-being. Perhaps you looked at a photo of a deceased loved one and uttered sincere words to God for their peace. You may even have requested the person himself to help you in your own difficulties. Is the photo the object of the prayer? Of course not. And neither are the statues and images Catholics may use to help them focus their minds as they pray.
The following statements are untrue. They take it upon them self to define what the Scriptures mean, instead of letting the Bible speak for itself. The Bible forbids make any “graven images.” The Catholic Stand is trying to convince you dear reader that it is okay to make idols, just so long as you don't replace God with it in your life. But that is not what the Bible says! The Bible forbids making any graven image, period! Catholics are notorious throughout history for bowing down to idols, committing the woeful sin of idolatry, and disregarding the plain teachings of God's Word! ...
The commandment, "Thou shalt not make graven images," refers to worshiping a material object or concept as if it had power unto itself, rather than the God Who created it. This not only refers to statues of false "gods", but things that don't even seem to be objects of worship. Examples of these are astrology, nature, Hollywood celebrities, money, excessive body-building and fitness, excessive "achievement" for its own sake leading to pride and arrogance, animals, the list goes on and on. While most of these things have their proper place and can be inherently good, the excessive pursuit is where the danger enters.
How many people criticize the repetitious prayers of the rosary, and yet regularly watch their favorite television show for empty-headed entertainment? Something to contemplate.
Pray the rosary for world peace while humbly meditating on its mysteries and you will see miracles happen! [emphasis added]
Did you know that the Bible exposes anyone who forbids marriage as being a FALSE PROPHET! Roman Catholicism is the biggest fraud in history! 1st Timothy 4:1-4, “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving.” The Catholic church prohibits its priests from getting married, which has caused a massive problem with abuse in the clergy. When men don't obey God, things go wrong!
Likewise, the Roman Catholic cult forbids eating anything but fish on Fridays, another unbiblical teaching. Yet, amazingly to me, untold masses of the planet rush to their own destruction, herding as cattle into a slaughterhouse! THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS A RELIGIOUS SLAUGHTERHOUSE!!! Unsaved religious people love Catholicism, because it doesn't require any faith! You are told to go here, do that, eat this, say these words, and then some ungodly priest assures you that everything is okay with God. There are no Holy Bibles in the pews of a Catholic parish. All of the songs and chants have been memorized from childhood. It is a creepy cult, in which the presence of the Holy Spirit is not felt nor found! Would to God that every Baptist preacher in America would let 'er rip and expose the biggest Satanic cult in the world—ROMAN CATHOLICISM!!!
Here is a heretical quote from another pro-Catholic website that I found, applying to children...
6 Reasons For Teaching Children The Rosary
It teaches them about the Scriptures. Many people do not realize that praying the rosary is meant to be a meditation upon the life of Christ and Mary in the Scriptures. Although not every mystery of the rosary can be found specifically in the Bible, the rosary can be an effective way to introduce students to stories from the Bible. By encouraging students to meditate on the mysteries of the rosary, you will be establishing prior knowledge they will be able to use in later lessons about the Annunciation, birth of Jesus, Paschal Mystery, etc. [emphasis added]
What a bold lie of the Devil. The Rosary does NOT teach the Holy Scriptures, it indoctrinates innocent children with the lies of Roman Catholicism! Notice what the apostle Paul said to young Timothy in 2nd Timothy 3:15-17, “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” Ah, dear reader, if the Holy Scriptures were all that Timothy needed from childhood to “MAKE THEE WISE UNTO SALVATION THROUGH FAITH WHICH IS IN JESUS CHRIST,” then it is all that you and I need as well. Amen! You better believe it's a big, “Amen!” The King James Bible is all anyone needs!
Please notice in the preceding powerful passage of Scripture, that no mention is made of turning away from your sins to be saved! There is no mention of being water baptized, neither partaking of the Lord's Supper, neither speaking in tongues, neither joining a church, neither doing good works, neither surrendering to Christ's Lordship, neither to follow Jesus, neither to confess Him before men, neither any other thing; the apostle Paul told Timothy that the Holy Scriptures are able to, “MAKE THEE WISE UNTO SALVATION THROUGH FAITH WHICH IS IN JESUS CHRIST.” Acts 16:30-31, “And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” The phrase, “AND THY HOUSE,” is simply an extended invitation to the entire family to be saved “THROUGH FAITH WHICH IS IN JESUS CHRIST”! Amen! I love it! I love it! I love it! Here again we see “THE SIMPLICITY THAT IS IN CHRIST” (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4).
May I say, kindly, THE ONLY place that you will learn the lies of “Lordship Salvation” and “turning away from willful sinful behavior” to be saved, is by listening to MEN! We ought to listen to what GOD SAYS ABOUT MAN in the Bible, and not listen to what MAN SAY ABOUT GOD everywhere else! What saith the Scripture? Romans 3:4, “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy.” Boy, that's good stuff! I am so glad and thankful that the Lord gave us so many precious, pertinent and perfect passages of Holy Scripture to work with contending for the faith! Oh, listen once again to what the dear apostle Paul said to youth Timothy in 2nd Timothy 3:15-17, “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” If you own a King James Bible friend, you hold in your possession the eternally inspired Words of almighty God!!!!!!!
The Pope Speaks Lies of the Devil
In his Apostolic Letter “Rosarium Virginis Mariae” (Rosary of the Virgin Mary), Pope John Paul II declared the Rosary as his favorite prayer, a “prayer for peace and for the family.” Pope John Paul II goes on to say. ...
“The Rosary of the Virgin Mary, which gradually took form in the second millennium under the guidance of the Spirit of God, is a prayer loved by countless Saints and encouraged by the Magisterium.”
SOURCE: (APOSTOLIC LETTER, ROSARIUM VIRGINIS MARIAE, OF THE SUPREME PONTIFF JOHN PAUL II TO THE BISHOPS, CLERGY AND FAITHFUL ON THE MOST HOLY ROSARY).
Pope John Paul II claimed that the Rosary took form “under the guidance of the Spirit of God.” There is NO proof to substantiate this claim. On the contrary, the Word of God makes no mention whatsoever about praying to Mary. In fact, the Bible never elevates Mary in any capacity, nor does it lead us to recognize her in any way. So why do Catholics elevate Mary when the Word of God doesn't?
Why does the Catholic Church call Mary the “Queen of Heaven,” a term from ancient Babylonian pagan worship (Jeremiah 7:18). Clearly, someone is lying, and it's not God (Romans 3:4). The Rosary is just another manmade tradition of Catholicism. Here is a long list of Catholic heretical traditions. These traditions are manmade and are not taught anywhere in the Scriptures.
Pope John Paul II foolishly continues...
“The Church has always attributed particular efficacy to this prayer, entrusting to the Rosary, to its choral recitation and to its constant practice, the most difficult problems. At times when Christianity itself seemed under threat, its deliverance was attributed to the power of this prayer, and Our Lady of the Rosary was acclaimed as the one whose intercession brought salvation.”
SOURCE: APOSTOLIC LETTER, ROSARIUM VIRGINIS MARIAE, OF THE SUPREME PONTIFF JOHN PAUL II TO THE BISHOPS, CLERGY AND FAITHFUL ON THE MOST HOLY ROSARY).
What blasphemy!!! Pope John Paul II said ... “Our Lady of the Rosary was acclaimed as the one whose intercession brought salvation.” Let me tell you something right now, no one can give you salvation other than the Lord Jesus Christ (John 14:6). “Our Lady of the Rosary” is a Devilish doctrine manufactured solely by the Catholic religion.
The Word of God never mentions the term “Our Lady.” Billions of people have been lied to by the Catholic religion. According to the Catholic Church, it was Our Lady of Fatima (Mary) who promised eternal life to all who would devote to her...
“Our Lady said that many souls would be saved from Hell and the annihilation of nations averted if, in time, devotion to Her Immaculate Heart were established...” —www.fatima.org
Can anyone show me that in the Bible? No, you CANNOT! John 14:6 tells us that the ONLY way to heaven is through Jesus Christ.
"Jesus saith unto him, I am
the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." —John 14:6
“We ought to obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29)!
Catholicism is a lie! The Message of Fatima is Satanic, totally contrary to the Word of God! NO AMOUNT OF DEVOTION to Mary can save a person from hell. Where in the world did Catholics ever get the crazy idea that Mary is to be recognized at all? Please read A Woman Rides the Beast. Roman Catholicism's origin is in a heathen Babylonian religion which worshipped the "Queen of Heaven" (Jeremiah 44:19,25).
Are you so foolish, to believe the words of sinful men, rather than the Incorruptible Word of God? Carefully consider the Bible's warning that Satan always appears as the good guy, as an angel of light (2nd Corinthians 11:14). When the Devil wants to fabricate another lie, he always starts with the truth, and then adds or subtracts from the truth to corrupt it. The Catholic religion has added all sorts of lies and doctrines of devils to the truth, so that it is no longer the truth; but, it appears as truth to the ignorant.
The only way for us to decipher the truth from the lies, is for us to COMPARE every doctrine to the precious Word of God. John 17:17 declares that God's Word is Truth, “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” I can sum up the entirety of the Holy Bible with just one word—TRUTH!
The words of Pope John Paul II don't match up to the Word of God. The heathen practice of the Rosary doesn't match up to the Word of God. Praying with vain repetitions doesn't match up with the Word of God. In fact, 90% of the Catholic religion doesn't match up with the Word of God. It's that 10% of biblical Truth that draws ignorant people into false religions such as Catholicism, and makes it so difficult for people to see the truth. You won't find God in Roman Catholicism nor Russian Catholicism. What saith the Scripture? John 4:24, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” The Devil knows that the most effective deceptions are the ones in which lies are mixed with truth, so the lie can be covered-up by the truthful part of the deception. This makes the half-truth more difficult to discern and expose, except by learned Bible students. That is why the Lord commanded us to SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES! John 5:39, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.”
As I grow older, each and every day that passes, I get more excited knowing that I have a home in Heaven. Proverbs 4:18, “But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.” If I live to be the same age as my mother, I have 13 years left to live. If I live to my father's age, I have 24 years left of life. Of course, I could be in Heaven by sundown! My days are numbered, and so are yours! Psalms 90:12, “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” I have the best God and Savior that a redeemed sinner could ever want. Micah 7:18, “Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.” Oh dear reader, if you don't KNOW beyond any shadow of a doubt that you are saved, that your name is written down in Heaven, that you are a born-again child of the Great King—YOU CAN KNOW RIGHT NOW!!!
John 8:32 and 36, “And ye shall know the
truth, and the truth shall make you
free ... If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
