Things that Catholic Church does that are totally against our father in Heaven and His Son…
1. No-one is to be called father…
And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Matthew 23:9
2. You must continually confess your sins in confessional.
Always asking for forgiveness.
Jesus forgives ALL our sins when we are saved.
Unlike the other high priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their sins ONCE for ALL when he offered himself.
Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little.” Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” Luke 7:47-48
“Blessed are those whose transgressions are forgiven; whose sins are covered.
Sins against each other should be expressed to each other by saying sorry and asking forgiveness from the individual you have sinned against…
Anyone can pray for you…
Therefore, confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. THE PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS PERSON IS POWERFUL AND EFFECTIVE.
3. The title on the hat of the Pope in Latin is ‘Vicarius filii dei’ translated is ‘the Son of God’ the only Son of God is Jesus Christ. Everyone else is called the Son of Man.
It is BLASPHEMY to say you are God…
*If you calculate this name, in Roman numerals it totals 666.*
This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.
From Catholic records;
Pope Pius X :
“The Pope is not only the representative of Jesus Christ, BUT HE IS JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF hidden under the veil of the flesh.
Does the Pope speak?
It is Jesus Christ that speaks.
Does the Pope accord a favour or pronounce an anathema?
It is Jesus Christ who pronounces the anathema Or accords the favor.”
(Protestant Alliance Magazine, March, 1922)
“The Pope TAKES THE PLACE OF JESUS CHRIST.
By DIVINE RIGHT the POPE has SUPREME and full power in faith, in morals over each and every pastor and his flock.
He is the true vicar, the head of the entire church, the FATHER and teacher of all Christians.
He is the infallible ruler, the founder of dogmas, the author of and the judge of councils; the universal ruler of truth, the arbiter of the world,
THE SUPREME JUDGE OF HEAVEN AND EARTH the judge of all, being judged by no one, GOD HIMSELF on earth.”
Writers on the Canon Law say,
“The POPE AND GOD ARE THE SAME so he has all power in heaven and earth.”
Barclay Cap. XXVII, p. 218.
Cities Petrus Bertrandus, Pius V. – Cardinal Cusa supports his statement.
Pope Nicholas I declared: “the appellation of God had been confirmed by Constantine on the Pope, who, BEING GOD cannot be judged by man.”
Labbe IX Dist.: 96 Can. 7, Satis evidentur, Decret Gratian Primer Para
“We hold upon this earth the PLACE of GOD ALMIGHTY”. Pope Leo XIII Encyclical Letter of June 20, 1894
“And GOD HIMSELF is OBLIGED to abide by the JUDGMENT of his PRIEST and either not to pardon or to pardon, according as they refuse to give absolution, provided the penitent is capable of it.” –
Liguori, «Duties and Dignities of the Priest», p.27
4. There is nowhere in scripture that says to pray to Mary. We are to pray to our father in Jesus name only.
You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
In that day you will no longer ask me anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues;
Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit— fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. John 15:16
My name will be great among the nations, from where the sun rises to where it sets. In every place incense and pure offerings will be brought to me, because my name will be great among the nations,” says the Lord Almighty.
There is nowhere in scripture that says anything about Mary, other than she is the mother of our Saviour…
She should be respected, just as much as Joseph for allowing her to live and not be stoned to death…
He listened to our father and the Angel that he sent him in a dream.
If it wasn’t for Joseph, Mary would not even have lived….
They are both equally important.
5. The 10 commandments.
And God spoke all these words
I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
1. “You shall have no other gods before me. (The Pope – the holy father)
2. You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments. (Statues and images of Mary)
3. “You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.
(Saying God must obey you, blasphemy (you are God) or you are Christ)
4. “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labour and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God.
On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns.
For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day.
Therefore, the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
(The Catholic Church changed Sabbath/Saturday worship to Sunday)
God, “with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning”
does not change…
“I the Lord DO NOT CHANGE. So you, the descendants of Jacob, are not destroyed. Ever since the time of your ancestors you have turned away from my decrees and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you,” says the Lord Almighty. “But you ask, ‘How are we to return?’
The Israelites received two laws from Moses: the law of Moses, that of ordinances and ceremonies; and the Law of God, embodied in The 10 commandments, which is an expression of God’s character.
If God does not change, neither will His Law.
“My covenant I will not break, nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips”
“I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it”
“The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy. They are steadfast for ever and ever, done in faithfulness and uprightness”
(Psalm 111:7, 8)
God gave His Law to the Israelites at Mt. Sinai.
Amid thunder and lightning, a thick cloud covered the mountain, and a trumpet blasted.
Smoke billowed up as from a furnace and the whole mountain shook as the trumpet grew louder and louder.
Moses led the Israelites out of their camp to meet with God, and every one of them trembled.
Then God spoke
(Exodus 19:16-19, 20:1).
If this Law were to be changed, it would be reasonable to expect God Himself to announce it, and give reasons for its alteration, amid the same amount of ceremony.
Yet there is no indication in Scripture of such an announcement.
What About the New Testament?
In the New Testament, the seventh day of the week is called the Sabbath; it is mentioned 58 times.
The first day of the week is mentioned eight times.
It is simply called the first day of the week, and it is always differentiated from the Sabbath.
This in itself is evidence for the continued validity of the seventh day Sabbath.
The gospel writers record Jesus and the apostles going to the synagogue on Sabbath as their “custom” (Luke 4:16 )
“I have kept My Father’s commandments”
The women who went to anoint His body after his death “rested on the Sabbath“ according to the commandment”
Nearly all of the incidents reported of the apostles’ preaching occurred on the seventh-day Sabbath.
Of all the accusations the Jews made against the apostles, never once did they accuse the apostles of breaking the Sabbath.
Some teach that after Christ’s death and resurrection, the Old Testament law was done away with and a new covenant took its place.
But Jesus Himself said,
“Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfil.
For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled”
(Matthew 5:17, 18).
The law of Moses, which foreshadowed Christ’s sacrifice, was indeed made irrelevant, but Paul maintains that the Law of God is to be kept, though we now be under grace.
“Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid; yea, we establish the law”
How It Happened…
Yet for nearly 2,000 years now, millions of Christians have worshiped on Sunday.
So was the Sabbath changed from the seventh to the first day of the week?
Let’s look at the “yes” now.
“The Son of Man is Lord also of the Sabbath”
Here Jesus staked His claim and forbade anyone to meddle with the Sabbath.
Yet He knew there would be those who would claim the power to change God’s Law.
Through Daniel he warned of just such a man.
Describing a “little horn power” (Daniel 7:8),
“He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws”
Paul made a similar prediction:
“Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.
He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God, or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God”
(2 Thessalonians 2:3, 4, 7).
Paul warned that this blasphemy was already at work, and that it would come not from an outside influence, but from within the church…
(2 Thessalonians 2:7, Acts 20:28-30).
Sure enough, not long after Paul’s day, apostasy appeared in the church.
About 100 years before Christianity, Egyptian Mithraists introduced the festival of Sunday, dedicated to worshiping the sun, into the Roman Empire.
Later, as Christianity grew, church leaders wished to increase the numbers of the church.
In order to make the gospel more attractive to non-Christians, pagan customs were incorporated into the church’s ceremonies.
The custom of Sunday worship was welcomed by Christians who desired to differentiate themselves from the Jews, whom they hated because of the Jews’ rejection of the Saviour.
The first day of the week began to be recognised as both a religious and civil holiday.
By the end of the second century, Christians considered it sinful to work on Sunday.
The Roman emperor Constantine, a former sun-worshiper, professed conversion to Christianity, though his subsequent actions suggest the “conversion” was more of a political move than a genuine heart change.
Constantine named himself Bishop of the Catholic Church and enacted the first civil law regarding Sunday observance in A.D. 321.
On the venerable day of the sun let the magistrate and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed.
In the country however, persons engaged in agricultural work may freely and lawfully continue their pursuits; because it often happens that another day is not so suitable for grain growing or for vine planting; lest by neglecting the proper moment for such operations the bounty of heaven should be lost. —Schaff’s History of the Christian Church, vol. III, chap. 75.
Note that Constantine’s law did not even mention Sabbath but referred to the mandated rest day as a “the venerable day of the sun.”
And how kind he was to allow people to observe it as it was convenient.
Contrast this with God’s command to observe the Sabbath “even during the ploughing season and harvest”
Perhaps the church leaders noticed this laxity as well, for just four years later, in A.D. 325,
Pope Sylvester officially named Sunday “the Lord’s Day,” and in A.D. 338, Eusebius, the court bishop of Constantine, wrote,
“All things whatsoever that it was the duty to do on the Sabbath (the seventh day of the week) we (Constantine, Eusebius, and other bishops) have transferred to the Lord’s Day (the first day of the week) as more appropriately belonging to it.”
Instead of the humble lives of persecution and self-sacrifice led by the apostles, church leaders now exalted themselves to the place of God.
“This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world”
(1 John 4:3).
The Catechism Recall the ceremony with which God made known His Law, containing the blessing of the seventh-day Sabbath, by which all humanity is to be judged.
Contrast this with the unannounced, unnoticed anticlimax with which the church gradually adopted Sunday at the command of “Christian” emperors and Roman bishops.
And these freely admit that they made the change from Sabbath to Sunday.
In the Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, we read:
Q. Which is the Sabbath day.
A. Saturday is the Sabbath day.
Q. Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
A. We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church, in the Council of Laodicea, (AD 336) transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday….
Q. Why did the Catholic Church substitute Sunday for Saturday?
A. The Church substituted Sunday for Saturday, because Christ rose from the dead on a Sunday, and the Holy Ghost descended upon the Apostles on a Sunday. (Ghost is Pagan, the Spirit is scripture)
Q. By what authority did the Church substitute Sunday for Saturday?
A. The Church substituted Sunday for Saturday by the plenitude of that divine power which Jesus Christ bestowed upon her!
—Rev. Peter Geiermann, C.SS.R., (1946), p. 50.
In Catholic Christian Instructed:
Q. Has the [Catholic] church power to make any alterations in the commandments of God?
A. …Instead of the seventh day, and other festivals appointed by the old law, the church has prescribed the Sundays and holy days to be set apart for God’s worship; and these we are now obliged to keep in consequence of God’s commandment, instead of the ancient Sabbath.
The Catholic Christian Instructed in the Sacraments, Sacrifices, Ceremonies, and Observances of the Church By Way of Question and Answer, RT Rev. Dr. Challoner, p. 204.
In An Abridgment of the Christian Doctrine:
Q. How prove you that the church hath power to command feasts and holy days?
A. By the very act of changing the Sabbath into Sunday, which Protestants allow of; and therefore, they fondly contradict themselves, by keeping Sunday strictly, and breaking most other feasts commanded by the same church.
Q. How prove you that?
A. Because by keeping Sunday, they acknowledge the Church’s power to ordain feasts, and to command them under sin; and by not keeping the rest [of the feasts] by her commanded, they again deny, in fact, the same power.
–Rev. Henry Tuberville, D.D. (R.C.), (1833), page 58.
In A Doctrinal Catechism:
Q. Have you any other way of proving that the Church has power to institute festivals of precept?
A. Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her. She could not have substituted the observance of Sunday the first day of the week, for the observance of Saturday the seventh day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority.
–Rev. Stephen Keenan, (1851), p. 174.
In the Catechism of the Council of Trent:
The Church of God has thought it well to transfer the celebration and observance of the Sabbath to Sunday!
–p 402, second revised edition (English), 1937. (First published in 1566)
In the Augsburg Confession:
They [the Catholics] allege the Sabbath changed into Sunday, the Lord’s day, contrary to the Decalogue, as it appears; neither is there any example more boasted of than the changing of the Sabbath day. Great, they say, is the power and authority of the Church,
since it dispensed with one of the ten commandments. —Art. 28.
God warned that a blasphemous power would “seek to change times and laws,” and the
The Catholic Church openly admits doing it, even boasts about it.
In a sermon at the Council of Trent in 1562, the Archbishop of Reggia, Caspar del Fossa, claimed that the Catholic Church’s whole authority is based upon the fact that they changed the Sabbath to Sunday. Does this not fulfil the prophecies of Daniel and Paul?
“For centuries millions of Christians have gathered to worship God on the first day of the week. Graciously He has accepted this worship.
He has poured out His blessings upon Christian people as they have sought to serve Him.
However, as one searches the Scriptures, he is forced to recognize that Sunday is not a day of God’s appointment…
It has no foundation in Scripture, but has arisen entirely as a result of custom,” says Frank H. Yost, Ph.D. in The Early Christian Sabbath.
Let us ask the question again: Was the Sabbath changed from the seventh day of the week to the first?
The Bible is clear:
“And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy”
ord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy”
If God intended for another day to become the Sabbath, He must have removed the blessing from the seventh day and placed it on the day which was to replace it.
But when God bestows a blessing, it is forever…
You, O Lord, have blessed it, and it will be blessed forever”
(1 Chronicles 17:27)
“I have received a command to bless; He has blessed, and I cannot change it”
Your birthday, a memorial of your birth, can’t be changed, though you may celebrate it on a different day.
Neither can the Sabbath, a memorial of creation (Exodus 20:11), be changed, though some may celebrate it on a different day.
God instructed Moses to construct the earthly sanctuary, all its furniture, and the ark according to “the pattern” he was shown.
(Exodus 25:9, 40)
The ark was called the “ark of the covenant”
(Numbers 10:33, Deuteronomy 10:8, Hebrews 9:4), and the “ark of the testimony” (Exodus
25:22), because in it Moses placed the tablets of stone on which God wrote His Law. (Exodus 25:16, 31:18)
John, in Revelation 11:19, describes the scene before him when “the temple of God was opened in Heaven.” John saw the ark of the covenant in the heavenly sanctuary.
“Your word, O Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens”
It is safe to assume that God’s Law remains, contained within the ark of the covenant in the heavenly sanctuary.
When God says,
“the seventh day is of the Lord your God” (Exodus 20:10), that ends all controversy.
We cannot change God’s Word for our own convenience.
“But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve”
5. “Honour your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.
6. “You shall not murder.
7. “You shall not commit adultery.
8. “You shall not steal.
9. “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbour.
10. “You shall not covet your neighbour’s house. You shall not covet your neighbour’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbour.” Exodus 20:1-17
They set up their vile images in the house that bears my Name and defiled it.
6. There is no such place as purgatory in scripture.
7. There is no such thing as indulgences…
You cannot buy your way into Heaven and you cannot pray for those that are already dead and passed on.
8. Infant baptism is not in Scripture.
To be saved by Christ, you must first:
Believe he is the Son of God.
That he gave his life for us, so that we are dead to sin and alive in him.
That he was crucified and rose again, and now sits at the right hand of our father in Heaven.
By his Blood we are purified, washed clean and given new life.
We are born again.
You must Repent.
You must have faith.
Babies cannot do these things.
All baptism’s in Scripture are inacted by people capable of making a fully conscious decision.
Unfortunately, many people have been deceived, thinking that because they were baptised as babies, they are automatically saved.
This is not the case.
9. The Pope sits on a throne of gold, and the Vatican receives 80 Million dollars per week, every week from tithes given, in America alone.
Calculate that throughout the world and it is Billions. Tithes are to be used for the brethren and those that are poor and for the widows and orphans.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27
Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or UNDER COMPULSION, for God loves a cheerful giver.
And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. As it is written:
“THEY HAVE FREELY SCATTERED THEIR GIFTS to THE POOR; their RIGHTEOUSNESS endures FOREVER.”
This service that you perform is not only SUPPLYING the NEEDS of the LORD’S PEOPLE but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.
Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in SHARING with THEM and with EVERYONE ELSE.
2 Corinthians 9:6-9, 12-14
10. If the Catholic Church SHARED their wealth, there would be NO STARVING people in the world.
11. Ask yourself why do they have their OWN BANK.
To HIDE their WEALTH.
12. They answer to no government authorities and HIDE all financial records and assets.
13. They take a vow of celibacy,. Which is completely unnatural for a man and nowhere in scripture.
This has caused them to become the largest paedophile organisation in the world, because children do not tell…
Children remain silent and priests can get away with the sexual abuse.
An Adult or grown woman might expose them…
One of the heads of the beast (Rome) seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. (The Papacy) The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast. (The Catholic Church) People worshiped the dragon (Satan) because he had given authority to the beast,(Rome) and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?” The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies (I am equal to God) and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people (Israel) and (The Roman Gentiles, who did not follow the doctrine of the Catholic Church) and to conquer them. (The fall of Jerusalem and the Spanish inquisition)
And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast, all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb (Christ) who was slain from the creation of the world. Whoever has ears, let them hear. Revelation 13:3-9
Throughout its long history, the Catholic Church has on occasion been subject to criticism regarding various beliefs and practices.
Within the Church, this includes differences of opinion regarding the use of Latin (Roman) at Mass, and the subject of clerical celibacy. (not in Scripture)
The Catholic Church has also been criticized for its active efforts to influence political decisions, such as the Church’s promotion and justification of the Spanish inquisition, the Crusades, and its involvement with various 20th century nationalist regimes. (Hitler)
More recent criticism focuses on alleged scandals within the Church, particularly alleged financial corruption and the Catholic Church’s Sexual Abuse Scandals.
Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel (The Catholic Church states they are the ‘Mother’ of ALL Church’s) who calls herself a prophet. (Messenger of God)
By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality (Paedophilia) and the eating of food sacrificed to idols, (Statues of Mary) I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. Revelation 2:20-21
Catholic Church sexual abuse cases are cases of child sexual abuse by Catholic Priests, nuns and members of religious orders.
In the 20th and 21st centuries, the cases have involved many allegations, investigations, trials, convictions, and revelations about decades of attempts by Church officials to cover up reported incidents. The abused include mostly boys but also girls, some as young as three years old, with the majority between the ages of 11 and 14.
Criminal cases for the most part do not cover sexual harassment of adults.
The accusations of abuse and cover-ups began to receive public attention during the late 1980s.
Many of these cases allege decades of abuse, frequently made by adults or older youths’, years after the abuse occurred.
Cases have also been brought against members of the Catholic hierarchy, who covered up sex abuse allegations and moved abusive priests to other Parishes, where abuse continued.
14. There are many Catholic Christians that do not accept the above problems, but if you do… You need to repent and follow scripture only…
I will take vengeance in anger and wrath on the nations that have not obeyed me.” Micah 5:15
My God will reject them because they have not obeyed him; they will be wanderers among the nations.
Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than human beings!
Redeem me from human oppression, that I may obey your precepts.
No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it. Deuteronomy 30:14
and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read it to the people. They responded, “We will do everything the Lord has said; we will obey.”
“ ‘Follow my decrees and be careful to obey my laws, and you will live safely in the land. Leviticus 25:18
He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.”
We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him.”
He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. 2 Thessalonians 1:8
For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous.
For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:17
15. There is only 1 way to Heaven… Jesus Christ…
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
Ask yourself where are the scriptures that refer to Mary and Sunday worship?
Blessings to you ALL…
May our father in Heaven reveal his Truth to you, through the Holy Spirit…
In Jesus mighty name…
