The old whore of Revelation 18 is just as corrupt and defiled as she was in the days of "Clement of Rome" and the other church "fathers." They can claim all they want, but Vatican II changed nothing. She still damns her constituents right and left, a dozen times a day, in every country on earth where there is a "parish priest" or a convent or a monastery. Catholics were never in subjection to the Bible and never will be. Rome will always profess to believe it in order to pervert it. Her adherents will follow and believe her instead of the Author of Scripture, for she is unholy and He is holy!
2. In the Bible, you enter the church by a new birth which the Holy Spirit imparts when you believe on Jesus Christ; in the Catholic Church, you enter it when a priest sprinkles or pours water on you.
3. In the Bible, you come to God directly through His Son Jesus Christ, whom you contact DIRECTLY; the Catholics get to Christ through Mary, the sacraments and dead saints.
4. In the Bible, you commemorate Christ's death with a supper to show His Second Coming; the Catholics re-enact Christ's death with an unbloody 'sacrifice' for the souls in 'purgatory.'
5. In the Bible, the Scriptures are self interpreting and contradict every Roman Catholic doctrine; to a Catholic, the Bible is a mysterious enigma that only the Catholic authorities can interpret, and you must accept their interpretation every place where they contradict Scripture.
6. In the Bible, Christ's one final and perfect completed atonement completely saves and justifies and predestines the believer to wind up just like Jesus Christ; for a Catholic, no one has his destination fixed, and Christ's sacrifice must be repeated and repeated and repeated, because it does not save anyone 'for sure".
7. The Bible contains sixty-six books; a Catholic Bible contains seventy-three.
8. In the Bible, Mary is a sinner who gets saved by believing on a Saviour and she is never called "mother" one time by Jesus Christ; the Catholic Mary is not only a sinlessly conceived mother of Christ, they call her the sinless Mother of God.
9. In the Bible, the church is built on Jesus Christ, the Rock; to a Catholic, the church is built on Peter.
10. In the Bible, all sin and all sins are PURGED by Christ's BLOOD; In Catholic land, they are purged by FIRE!
Biblical Christianity and Roman Catholicism do not 'touch base' at one point on the ball diamond. There is NOTHING about Roman Catholicism that resembles Biblical Christianity where it deals with the Second Commandment, mary's birth or death or family or position in the Body of Christ, salvation, sanctification, water baptism, justification, the Lord's Supper, imputed righteousness, prayer life, attitude towards dead saints, soul winning, life after death, Israel, the local church, the authority of the Scriptures, the identification of the Mother of Harlots or the Man of Sin.
The greatest corrupter of Biblical Christianity in the late twentieth century is still the one who corrupted it through the last fifteen centuries: Rome - The Catholic Church!
When you find a Christian and a Catholic in the same ecumenical
'bed' together, one of them )or both of them) has to be sound asleep.
No genuine Christian could stand five seconds in any ecumenical effort
with a genuine Roman Catholic. The historical judgment of the centuries
(A.D. 100 to A.D. 1900) is there can be no 'fellowship of righteousness
with unrighteousness' and no fellowship between the 'temple of God and
Proverbs 5:3-5, 8
For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:
But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword.
Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:
The mouth of strange women is a deep pit:
he that is abhorred of the LORD shall fall therein.
Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith,
I have done no wickedness.
Now, from the 'Church' herself!
For the last three years, it fell to me, as my responsibility, to scrape our blessed Lord from under the pews, stuck there with the old wads of chewing gum. (the Fatima Crusader, Summer, 1991 pg. 21)
As the Catholic Creed of Saint Athanasius says: 'Whosoever wishes to be saved, before all good works, must hold unto the Catholic Faith, for unless a person keeps the faith, whole and entire, he will undoubtedly be lost forever.' (the Fatima Crusader, Summer, 1991 pg 6)
One day, the Blessed Virgin Mary said, 'I will save the
world with my Rosary and my Scapular'.
(the Fatima Crusader, Summer, 1991 pg 24)
If anyone deny that in the Sacrament of the Most Holy eucharist are contained truly, really and substantially, the body and blood together with the soul and divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ, let him be accursed. (the Fatima Crusader, Summer, 1991 pg. 21)
If you pray the rosary every day, if you always wear the scapular of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, she is bound to save you from Hell, because she is bound her promises. God's Most Holy Mother will crush the Serpent's head. (the Fatima Crusader, Summer, 1991 pp. 26, 39)
In this sheepfold of Jesus Christ, no one can enter if not under the guidance of the supreme pontiff, and men can be certain to achieve salvation only if they are united to him, since the Roman Pontiff is the Vicar of Christ and represents His Person on earth. (Pope John XXIII - Vatican II - when being crowned at his "coronation," 1958. The World of the Vatican, Robert Neville, harper and Row, 1962, p. 119)
There is no such thing as absolute certainty of salvation during this life. (Knights of Columbus, This is the Catholic Church, 1970, p. 13)
In the Mass, one recieves the very body and very blood of Jesus Christ...in an unbloody manner. (Morrow, My Catholic Faith, p. 284ff; John O'Brien, The Faith of Millions, p. 382; The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, Knights of Columbus, pamphlet no. 6, pp.28,29).
No grace comes from God to man except it pass through Mary's hands (Father Butterfield, Night Journey From Rome, p. 74)
Thus the cross, the Last Supper and the Mass are one and the same sacrifice. These three sacrifices have the same victim and the same priest and the same offering. (Knights of Columbus, The Mass, the Eternal Sacrifice, pp. 11,12)
Come out of her, my people,
that ye be not partakers of her sins,
and that ye receive not of her plagues.
