After reading the following article this morning, I was APPALLED to think that such “thinking” seems to be prevalent in today’s world and today’s American “secular” society.

It would seem that this woman (and others like her) are attributing Satan’s attributes to God. And we know from reading the bible that the God of Abraham, Moses, Isaac and Jacob would NEVER advocate the killing of innocent babies.

And then there’s the following webpage of testimonials where many people are attributing God’s attributes (love, patience, kindness, forgiveness) to Satan. Many people these days go public when they have a near death experience involving Jesus Christ but yet, I have yet to hear of even ONE case of a person going public or on live TV talking about how “great” Satan is or how “Satan” saved them from death, etc.

Plus I’ve also known a Catholic whom most recently claimed to me that God (as in, God of the bible) told them to join the Catholic Church! And this couldn’t be further from the truth! Nearly every single thing the Catholics believe or practice actually goes AGAINST the bible! [Therefore, whatever told my friend to become “Catholic” wasn’t God but Satan!]

For example, here are just 4 of the Catholics’ main teachings that go AGAINST the bible (and there’s many, many more, but for the sake of space, I will just focus on the 4, for right now).

1). Catholics believe that Mary is a mediator between God and Man.

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” Acts 4:12

2). Catholics believe that it’s OK to bow down to idols and worship saints. But Ezekial 20: 3-5 states otherwise:

3 “Thou shalt have no other gods before me”.

4 “Thou shall not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth”.

5 “Thou shall not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me” 

3). Catholics believe that we are to call the priest “Father” and that all need to “pray the rosary”.

“Do not call anyone on Earth your father, for One is your father, He who is in heaven” Matthew 23:9

“But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think they will be heard for their much speaking” Matthew 6:7

Historical note: Roman Catholics borrowed the idea of praying with beads from the pagan religions who were already using them hundreds of years before: In 456 AD, Hindus are thought  to have introduced the concept of praying with beads to the world. The earliest reference to a rosary (boberkhas) is in their “Jain Canon” (456 AD) These boberkhas had various numbers of beads 6,9,12,18,36 (any sub-multiple of 108). Islam (610 AD) uses a rosary of 99 beads, one for each of the names of God. Buddhists have 108 prayer beads on the string. The Rosary is of pagan origin and no Christian prior to 1000 AD used beads to pray. [Source: http://www.bible.ca/cath-overview-false-teaching.htm%5D

Yet others would STILL like to attribute Satan’s attributes to God in the Old Testament saying things like “the God of the Old Testament was a murderer” and the like. But look at the bigger picture. What type of people did God tell his servants to “slay” during the time of the Old Testament? Answer: evil people. People that themselves liked to murder, steal, commit heinous acts, etc. Therefore, if the God of the Old Testament was Satan himself (as some claim), then wouldn’t it make more rational sense for the Jews to be killed off in the OT, instead of the Babylonians, Sodomites, Egyptians, etc.? Think about it. Satan is all about “free will” and “live to excess” and that’s EXACTLY what those ancient Pagan peoples thought/did! The Jews, for the most part, did NOT! And when they did, they were PUNISHED!

Therefore, God (in alot of ways) is like a loving parent who blesses his obedient children and punishes the disobedient ones. Why? Because he’s a righteous, loving God and wants what’s best for his creation. Satan is the EXACT OPPOSITE! He wants to deceive, kill and destroy all of mankind!!! Thereby, it stands to reason: whomever takes God’s attributes and attributes them to Satan is committing BLASPHEMY (perhaps blasphemy of the Holy Spirit!) Likewise, whoever takes Satan’s attributes and attributes them to God is ALSO committing blasphemy (likely blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, also!) And we know from reading the bible that blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is the ONLY unforgiveable sin. Now, does that mean that someone who commits blasphemy of the Holy Spirit can’t be forgiven, even if they repented of it before their earthly death? I can’t say for 100% sure, I’ll let God be the judge on that one. But I can’t see WHO, in their right MINDS, after knowing the FULL REALITIES of ETERNAL condemnation in the fire, would EVER want to go there!

But I pray that ALL who see this message will be saved in the name of Jesus Christ and assured an eternal spot in his heavenly kingdom forever & ever. Amen.
