If you are Catholic and you are reading this right now, I beg you from the bottom of my heart and the DEPTHS of my SOUL to please GET OUT OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, WHILE YOU STILL CAN! Practically every SINGLE Catholic doctrine goes AGAINST the bible and is leading many people’s souls into hell. If you don’t want your soul to be sent to hell/eternal judgement someday, then keep reading!
John 3:16 states: “For God so loved the World that he gave his only begotten Son that whoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”. That means that God the Heavenly Father wants to save as MANY souls as possible! Jesus Christ LOVES you and he wants to have a spiritual relationship with you! However, he can’t do that if you won’t let him and/or if you die in the sin of having rejected his heavenly truth(s) in the bible!
Note to all Catholics: if you repent and leave the Catholic Church NOW, Jesus Christ can STILL redeem you. Being granted the free gift of Salvation by Jesus Christ is by grace through faith + obedience NOT by works! And if you’re Catholic and are offended right now by what I’m saying, I pray that the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ will spiritually open up your eyes before it’s too late!
“My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the LORD” [Jeremiah 51:45]
“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” [Revelation 18:4]
The Roman Catholic Church has taken quite a few hits lately within the last few years and child abuse and molestation has been RAMPANT among priests, and for the most part, has been swept under the rug and gone UNREPORTED. Instead, child molesting priests will oftentimes be switched from parish to parish with just a mere slap on the wrist. Just about any other Christian church would be up in arms if they had a child molesting priest among the ranks (or is it just me?)
But charges of child molestation aside, what else is it about the Roman Catholic Church that is spiritually lacking?
Answer: The TRUE 100% written testimony of the Word of God, written in the [original, NOT the New] King James Bible!
Practically almost EVERYTHING the Catholic Church believes and practices goes AGAINST the bible! [And though there’s many more things not listed, for the sake of space and length, I’ve narrowed it down to 20 things the Catholic church practices/believes that goes AGAINST the bible!]
Lets examine the evidence.
Popular Teachings of the Catholic Church [DEBUNKED by KJV scriptures]:
1. During communion, the wine and wafer become the “literal” flesh and blood of Christ through a process known as “transubstantiation”.
“And he [Jesus Christ] took bread, and gave thanks and brake it, and gave unto them [the 12 disciples], saying “This is is my body which is given for you: do this in remembrance of me. Likewise, also the cup after supper saying “This cup is the New Testament in my blood, which is shed for you” [Luke 22: 19-20]
These were meant to be “symbolic” of his Jesus’s sacrifice for our sins during his crucifixion. And we are to have communion in remembrance of his sacrifice for us during the crucifixion. However, when the Catholic priests perform “Mass”, they are actually performing an ABOMINATION since what they are doing is literally cannibalizing Christ and “crucifying him” all over again when there was only ONE crucifixion of Jesus Christ!
2. Mary was/is a perpetual virgin/Jesus Christ had no siblings, she had no sin and is just as important, if not MORE so than Jesus.
“And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour” [Luke 1: 46-47]
“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” [Jeremiah 7:18]
“Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife” [Matthew 1:24]
“And knew her not till she brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Jesus” [Matthew 1: 25]
“While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren [brothers] stood without, desiring to speak with him” [Matthew 12:46]
“Is not this the carpenter’s son? Is not his mother called Mary? And his brothers, James, and Joses, and Simon and Judas?” [Matthew 13: 55]
“His brethren [brothers] therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest” [John 7: 3]
“But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord’s brother” [Galatians 1:19]
“Have we not power to lead about a sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and as the brethren [brothers] of the Lord, and Cephas?” [1 Corinthinians 9: 4-5]
3. The Catholic Church added things to the bible, (namely, The Catechism) which are NOT “official bible doctrine”
“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book” [Revelation 22: 18-19]
4. One is to call the priest(s) “Father”
“And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven” [Matthew 23: 19]
5. One is to make confession to priests & say “Hail Marys” to receive forgiveness of sins
“For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” [1 Timothy 2:5]
6. One is to pray the Rosary
The Hail Mary prayer:
“Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death. Amen”
[The very first two words of the prayer, “Hail Mary”, illustrate how one is actually PRAYING to Mary. And we know from the King James Bible that praying to anything OTHER than Jesus Christ is blasphemy!]
Acts 4:12 states: “Neither is there salvation in any other [other than the Lord Jesus Christ]: for there is none other name under heaven given among men [save for Lord Jesus Christ Almighty], whereby we must be saved” while Galatians 1:9 proclaims: “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed” while 2 Corinthians 11:4 explicitly warns: “For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him“.
In other words, 2 Corinthians 11:4 is talking about just how EASY it is for one to become deceived if they’re not 100% grounded in the TRUE gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the KJV, front to back!
“And it came to pass, as he [Jesus Christ] spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. But he [Jesus Christ] said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it” [Luke 11: 27-28]
Matthew 6:7 “But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking“
7. One is to worship dead saints
One of the many prayers to “dead saints” is the following:
“Generous St. Dymphna,like all Christ’s martyrs you gained this crowning grace because you prepared for it by a life of self denial. By faithfulness in smaller things you were ready for your final trial. Please teach us by your example and help to use the good things of life so that we may not miss our chance for life eternal. Help us, too, to watch and pray for ourselves and others. Amen”.
[The sad reality is that “saints” in the Catholic church are actually “demons/demon spirits”, JESUS CHRIST is the one who lived an “ultimate” life of self-denial, JESUS CHRIST is the one who had an ultimate “final trial”, JESUS CHRIST and JESUS CHRIST, ALONE is the only one the bible tells us to pray to, and JESUS CHRIST is the only one who has the power to give eternal life!]
“And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellow-servant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God” [Revelation 22:8-9]
“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be they name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptations, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” [Matthew 6: 9-13]
“Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God” [Luke 9:60]
8. One is to worship Mary, Idols/”Saints”/STATUES and the Pope
“And God spake all these words, saying, I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me” [Exodus 20: 1-3]
“Thou shalt 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. Thou shalt 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” [Exodus 20: 4-5]
“And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and IDOLS of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk” [Revelation 9:20]
9. The Pope is God’s mouthpiece on Earth (infallible)
“For ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God” [Romans 3:23]
10. Salvation is obtained through the 7 holy sacraments and “good works”
“For by grace are ye saved through faith: and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” [Ephesians 2: 8-9]
11. Infant baptism, abstaining from meats on Lent and/or Good Friday, and forbidding priests to marry
“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” [1 Timothy 4:3]
12. When one dies, one immediately goes to Purgatory
“And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. and Jesus said unto him, ‘Veryily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise” [Luke 23: 42-43]
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire” [Revelation 20: 12-15]
“He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned” [Mark 16:16]
“In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return” [Genesis3:19]
13. The true sabbath day is SUNDAY, not Saturday
“And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time” [Daniel 7:25]
“And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made” [Genesis 2: 2-3]
14. Baptism is by “sprinkling” and not full-water immersion
“And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water [the River Jordan, which John the Baptist baptized people in]: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him” [Matthew 3:16]
15. Peter is the “rock” by which the Christian church was built
[Jesus saved PETER, not the other way around!!!!!!]
“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ” [1 Corinthians 3:11]
“But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men” [Matthew 16:23]
16. Priests must dress in clerical dress
“But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments” [Matthew 23:5]
“Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?” [Matthew 6:25]
17. Peter was hung upside down when he died….thus, the sign of the “catholic cross” (upside down cross) is “not satanic” in nature
“Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with thee: for he is profitable to me for the ministry” [2 Timothy 4:11]
“The church that is at Babylon, elected together with you, saluteth you; and so doth Marcus my son“ 1 Peter 5:13 [this is the ONE verse that Catholics claim the apostle Peter wrote while he was in Rome. However, there is no clear, distinct biblical evidence (as far as I can see) that Peter was in Rome OR that he was crucified upside down! In fact, James is the ONLY apostle I know of who’s death is clearly recorded in the bible in Acts 12:2! All other apostles deaths seem to be based on “church tradition”]
As for the “Catholic claim” that the upside down cross “isn’t Satanic”, well, judge for yourself……..
18. One must kiss the pope’s ring and there are “levels” of hierarchy within the church
[This represents the “Masonic hierarchy”]
[Notice that the back of Madonna’s shirt (who was raised Catholic) has the Masonic hierarchy!!]
19. A person must perform 3 miracles, be “beautified” and “canonized” before becoming a “saint”.
In the Bible, everyone who has received Jesus Christ by faith is a saint.
Daniel 7:25 states: “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.”
And all Christian saints that overcometh, Jesus Christ will grant the right for that saint/those saints to become co-rulers with him in the Millennial Kingdom.
“Behold, I [Jesus Christ] stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne” [Revelation 3:20-21]
1 Cortinthians 15:52 says: “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
20. The reading of (& consequent understanding/interpretation of) the bible is best left to a priest(s).
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” [2 Timothy 3:16]
“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation” [2 Peter 1:20]
This type of situation is one of the main issues that Jesus dealt with, concerning the “highly religious” and “social elite” Pharisees. Jesus Christ ministered to the poor and uneducated with commonly understood parables. In other words, they didn’t NEED someone to interpret the Scriptures for them. [Jesus Christ himself was the EPITOME of the scriptures, so who better to explain them to the common lay people than Jesus Christ himself?] And as a matter of fact, it was the Pharisees themselves who didn’t understand, as they were all caught up in their “religious acts”.
A Christian has the Holy Spirit [the spirit of truth/spiritual discernment] to lead him, he does not NEED a priest to interpret anything. As a matter of fact, the idea that only a priest is able to interpret the Scriptures, is one of the main reasons for the terrible abuses and exploitations by the priesthood over the years. It’s not so much about saving souls as it’s about $$$$$, Power and CONTROL. The “holy priesthood” knew they would pretty much be out of a job if the people were ever able to read the bible for themselves, and trust me, they weren’t ABOUT to give up all their $$$$, power and control.
The fact is, when a person thinks that a priest has special powers of biblical interpretation, they are putting themselves at the mercy of a sinful human being who is inundated with all kinds of jealousies, false motives [think $$$$$, power and control], arrogance, lust, greed, etc.
And most recently, it is ALSO come to my attention that there’s a very high likelihood that the Roman Catholic Church just might be “The Whore of Babylon” talked about in Revelation!
Revelation chapter 17 describes it in full detail!
But please, I beg you, NOW! If you or anyone you know’s currently in the Catholic Church right now, RUN from it! FLEE! And don’t EVER, **EVER** look back!
“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” [Revelation 20:15]
