Catholicism is a false religion

I am posting a truth that must be heard. In memory of Keith Green who many years ago posted his “Catholic Chronicles.” I am bringing an updated version. It will be in parts (short attention spans). But it is full of truth. Parts are very shocking but it must stand with the Word of God or be rejected as teachings of man.

Bible verses about the catholic church                         Part one.

Catholicism is the biggest enemy to Christianity because it poses as a Christian denomination. Catholicism is not a different denomination. Catholicism is a false religion, which is sending many deceived people to Hell. It is impossible to follow all their heresies and be saved.

Today many are trying to classify it as a Christian religion, but for centuries it has always been known as a false religion. Many believers were martyred for the rejection of the Roman Catholic Church. Throughout history the RCC has been filled with idolatry, pedophilia, and abuse. In Catholicism you can never know that you are saved.

There is no way you can read the Word of God and not see that Catholicism is of the devil. Do not be deceived. Many believers attend Catholic churches because of their family members, but this should not be.

If you are a Christian and you go to a Catholic church I encourage you to stop going immediately and find a biblical church to attend.

Quotes

  • “Martin Luther – We here are of the conviction that the papacy is the seat of the true and real Antichrist.”
  • Charles Spurgeon – “Christ did not redeem His church with His blood, so the pope could come in and steal away the glory. He never came from heaven to earth and poured out His very heart that He might purchase His people so that a poor sinner, a mere man, should be set upon high to be admired by all the nations and to call himself God’s representative on earth! Christ has always been the head of His church.”
  • Martin Luther – “I am persuaded that if at this time, St. Peter, in person, should preach all the articles of Holy Scripture, and only deny the pope’s authority, power, and primacy, and say, that the pope is not the head of all Christendom, they would cause him to be hanged.”
  • Westminster Confession of Faith – “There is no other head of the Church but the Lord Jesus Christ; nor can the Pope of Rome, in any sense, be head thereof; but is that Antichrist, that man of sin, and son of perdition, that exalts himself, in the Church, against Christ and all that is called God.”

Catholics call their priest father and the pope the holy father.

When you call anyone holy other than God that is blasphemy. Only God is holy, and that title is reserved only for Him. Not to Mary and not to the pope. No one referred to any apostles as father. We are told to call no one father in a spiritual sense or as a religious title.

I made sure to say spiritual sense because many Catholics are going to say don’t you honor your dad by calling him father? Jesus said to honor your mother and father. Why would He contradict Himself by saying, “call no man father on Earth?” He wouldn’t! He wasn’t talking about your dad. If we read Matthew 23 in context we see that He is talking about a spiritual title.

The Pharisees loved being called rabbi and father. They loved being called by names that were above all other names as if they were very close to God, on the same level as God, or above God. Names that should only belong to Christ. Jesus criticized the Jewish leaders. You are not to be called father and you are not to call anyone father. What is being forbidden is exactly what we see in the Catholic Church.

  1. Matthew 23:5-10 They do all their deeds to be seen by people, for they make their phylacteries wide and their tassels long. They love the place of honor at banquets and the best seats in the synagogues and elaborate greetings in the marketplaces, and to have people call them ‘Rabbi.’ But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher and you are all brothers. And call no one your ‘father’ on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. Nor are you to be called ‘teacher,’ for you have one teacher, the Christ.

Catholicism teaches salvation by faith and works. 

Canon 9 – “If anyone saith, that by faith alone the impious is justified; let him be damned.”

CCC 846 – “Basing itself on Scripture and Tradition, the Council teaches that the Church, a pilgrim now on earth, is necessary for salvation.”

CCC 2068 – “The Council of Trent teaches that the Ten Commandments are obligatory for Christians and that the justified man is still bound to keep them. All men may attain salvation through faith, Baptism and the observance of the Commandments.”

CCC 2010 – “Moved by the Holy Spirit and by charity, we can then merit for ourselves and for others the graces needed for our sanctification, for the increase of grace and charity, and for the attainment of eternal life.”

Canon 9 says if you believe in salvation by faith alone, then you are damned. Blasphemy! The core of Christianity is salvation by faith in Christ alone. When it stops being faith in Christ alone it is no longer Christianity. It is a false religion. The Catholic Church teaches that you must hold on to the Ten Commandments. Are you obeying everything perfectly?

If you are trying to maintain your relationship with God by faith and works Galatians 3:10 says you will be cursed. The reason is that you are not obeying everything. Faith is a gift of God. It is all by His grace. God desires perfection and that is why we must trust in the perfect merit of Jesus Christ. CCC 2010 says that “we can merit for ourselves and for others the graces needed for our salvation.”

This is a direct contradiction to the Bible. This is not something we can overlook. I love people too much to allow them to go to Hell! Open your eyes! Romans 11:6 says, “it is no longer based on works; otherwise grace would no longer be grace.” When you try to maintain your relationship with God by works you are not trusting in Jesus Christ alone. Romans 3:28 teaches us salvation is by faith apart from works. This is a complete contradiction to the Catechism.

With a plethora of faith alone verses that contradict the catechism most Catholics are going to go to one verse James 2:17, “In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” They say, “you see we need faith and works.” No! We must read it in context to find out what is James 2 talking about. It is talking about a false faith before man. It is examining a false faith vs a genuine faith. It is not saying we need faith and works for salvation.

James 2:14 says, “What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works?” (Can that faith save him?) What faith is it talking about? A false faith! Genuine faith results in works. Salvation is a supernatural work of God where God changes a man and God works in the man to produce fruit. 2 Corinthians 5:17 teaches us that faith in Christ alone results in being a new creation.

You don’t need to maintain and work for your salvation. You were bought with the blood of Christ. Colossians 2:14 says, “he canceled our debt.” We have no more debt to pay. It’s cancelled! It’s all of grace. We don’t obey because it saves us, and it keeps us in a right standing with God. We obey because we are saved by Christ alone.

We were made new by the power of the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit is continually working in us to conform us into the image of Christ. A changed life is evidence of faith in Christ alone. If you seek salvation by faith and obeying the commandments you are cursed like Galatians 3 says. Galatians 3:10 For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.”

Notice that in Matthew 7:22 Many said Lord look at all the good things I did, but the Lord said, “depart from me I never knew you.”
