THE CATHOLIC CHURCH - FILM

 

I visited a Catholic Church the other day for Mass. It was strange how everything remained

the same from years prior.

I grew up a Catholic, and then gained my freedom when I asked Christ to come into my life

and to be my Lord and Savior.

I remember when I was first born again from this prayer, that I had joy unspeakable and I

was excited to be alive.

This is something I had never experienced before. Sure there were times of happiness, but

never lasting joy.

It is interesting how I have had long seasons in my life of nothing but sacrifice and work with

and for Christ, but there is and was a stream of life flowing in me and through me. This is God’s

gift to men.

I noticed in the Catholic Church the following same - old wrong things that have no life in

them, for they are manmade traditions, and not from the living God.

The Church service was formal and stiff.

The Church had no Holy Ghost freedom of release and expression.

The priest was in bondage without the freedom of expression in Christ.

There was no Church worship team and praise.

There were no instruments of joy, just a classical pianist.

There was only the reading of The Word, nothing explained or taught.

The people were praying to Mary, which is idolatry.

There were people there to receive forgiveness from a priest, and not from the Lord directly.

The nuns were present who had a taken a demonic vow of poverty.

God wants to bless the willing and obedient in Christ Jesus.

 

Isaiah 1:19

“If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.”

There were no manifest gifts of the Holy Spirit there to profit all, as it is written in Scripture.

 

1 Corinthians 12:1-11

“Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.

Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.

Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus

accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by

the same Spirit;

To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits;

to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as

he will.”

There was no teaching about the life of Faith, that we should walk by Faith and not by sight,

as Scripture commands. 

 

2 Corinthians 5:7

“For we walk by faith, not by sight.”

There was no lifting up of hands in the sanctuary, as Scripture teaches.

 

Psalm 134:1-3

“Behold, bless ye the Lord, all ye servants of the Lord, which by night stand in the house of

the Lord.

2 Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord.

The Lord that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion.”

There was no teaching on the Hope found in Christ, for a better life."

 

Acts 20:32

“And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to

build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.”

There was no mention of the common wealth of Israel (which is the sanctified people in

Christ) and the covenants of promise,

which help to propel us -  to move one day at a time further down the road with Christ.

 

Ephesians 2:12

“That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel,

and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world.”

The Church never talked about fulfilling your God given destiny on this earth.

We each were born with a special, unique design that only we can add to this earth to beautify

it, and to make it whole.

We were created for God’s pleasure.

He delights over us.

 

Psalm 139:14-18

“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that

my soul knoweth right well.

15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in

the lowest parts of the earth.

16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members

were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still

with thee.”

The Church never spoke of the importance of mankind to co-labor with God for the souls of

men.

 

1 Thessalonians 1:3

Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in

our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father.”

I noticed in the service many people sleeping and drifting off, as the Mass did not keep their

attention.

I also got a glance of what the church calls “Holy Water,” which is no more than water and a

little salt, which the priest prayed over.

It is interesting that Scripture teaches us to make ourselves clean by reading the Word of God,

and then doing what we read in the Word of God.

This is a life that is perfecting – Holiness.

 

Ephesians 5:25-27

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any

such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.”

I noticed no Church members present who are truly going about the Fathers Business,

to change all nations, as this is the heart of Almighty God.

 

1 Timothy 2:4

“Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.”

I was really shocked to hear the reading of the ritualistic, repetitive prayer of the “Apostles

Creed,” that mentions the Catholic Church as the only Church.

Funny how the Catholic’s were not even around back in the original Apostles days, much less

the Catholic Church.

I also was alarmed that no one in the Church brought their Bible with them.

But then again, no one is taught in the Catholic Church as Christ commands to live in and

on the Word of God.

 

Matthew 4:4

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every

word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”

I was appalled at all the statues in the church.

We are to respect the respectable, but we are only to worship one – The Lord God Almighty.

 

Matthew 4:10

“Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the

Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”

In light of all this, I am praying for the freedom of every named Catholic on the globe.

Jesus does not want you in bondage to the devil in any way.

Jesus died to set you free from the demonic kingdom, which is upon this earth.

Jesus also died to give you eternal life.

We are what we believe.

If you believe the Bible, and live according to it – you will be free.

If you refuse to believe the Bible and live by it, you will remain in your sins and bondage,

and your life will be lost and miserable – perhaps even one that enters into eternal

damnation.

Please purchase a King James Bible, and read, obey and keep the life commanded.

Join a Holy Spirit filled church who teaches - The Word of God.

Enjoy life my friend, and inherit all –both here and eternally in Christ Jesus.

Please study and know the following information presented to you about the facts of;

The Catholic Church.

 

The Facts

What is the Catholic Church?

Let us take a look.

Here is a chronological record of the Catholic Church.

The Catholic Church doctrines are against Scripture.

Scripture is – The Word of God, The Holy Bible.

God wants all people free of the devil, who has twisted Scripture and instituted confusion

and tradition to replace the freedom that is found in Christ alone.

Therefore, God wants all Catholics free.

God wants all Catholics to look at the error in this religion and become free to worship him

in Spirit and in Truth.

Listed below are the heresies of pagan origin that were brought into the Church from other

religions.

 

1.   300 AD

Prayers for the dead and the sign of the cross.

We are not to pray for the dead.

The dead are gone into their eternal choice.

Hebrews 9:27

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.”

 

2.   320 AD

Wax candles were introduced.

 

3.   375 AD

The veneration (worship) of dead saints and of angels.

We are to worship the Lord God only.

Matthew 4:10

“Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the

Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”

 

4.   394 AD

The daily celebration of Mass was introduced.

 

5.   431 AD

The Council of Ephesus applied the title, “Mother of God” to Mary and began to worship her.

We are to worship the Lord God only.

Matthew 4:10

“Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the

Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”

All Christians honor Mary as the blessed woman – a young virgin who was given the privilege

of bearing the human body of our Lord into this world.

This is the clear teaching of Scripture.

The Roman Catholic Church goes far beyond this and recognizes Mary as a mediator between

God and mankind.

Catholics pray to Mary to intercede for them.

God’s Word teaches us;

1 Timothy 2:5

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”

Jesus Christ is our mediator, our great High Priest, who intercedes for us.

We are to pray to no other.

Hebrews 7:24-27

But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.

25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him,

seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

26 For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from

sinners, and made higher than the heavens;

27 Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins,

and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.”

Romans 8:34

Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is

even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.”

It is blasphemy to place Mary or any other human being into a place reserved solely for

the Son of God.

Scripture establishes Jesus Christ as the only mediator and High Priest for mankind.

Humanity is not to pray to Mary.

Scripture teaches us that we are to pray directly to the Father, in the name and authority

of Jesus Christ.

Matthew 6:5-8

“And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray

standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men.

Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door,

pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee

openly.

But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they

shall be heard for their much speaking.

Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need

of, before ye ask him.”

John 14:13-14

“And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified

in the Son.

14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.”

Mary is also venerated as a co-redemptive, as having a part of our redemption.

This is also blasphemy.

There is only one Redeemer, one Saviour – Jesus Christ.

Acts 4:12

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given

among men, whereby we must be saved.”

Scripture makes it abundantly clear that no human is to be worshipped or placed on a

spiritual pedestal.

Jesus Christ must be center and supreme.

Our lives are to be surrendered totally to the Lord, and none other.

The Pope today wears on his robes the letter, “M” which represents his personal slogan,

 “Totus Tuus Sum Maria.”

This means; “All together and totally yours Mary.”

Most Catholics would not admit it, but in many ways Mary is more vitally involved in their

religious thought and activities than the Lord Jesus Christ himself.

This is not true Christianity.

Christians agree that Jesus was born of a virgin, this is immaculate conception.

The Doctrine of Immaculate Conception teaches that Mary was born free from original sin,

that from her conception she was free from a sinful human nature.

Scripture gives absolutely no support to this doctrine.

Mary is announced in Scripture as a normal young woman, who after giving birth to Jesus

through God’s miraculous intervention, was married to Joseph and had several children.

This fact is often denied by Catholics.

Matthew 13:53-56

“And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence.

54 And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch

that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?

55 Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not his mother called Mary? And his brethren, James, and Joses,

and Simon, and Judas?

56 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?”

John 2:12

“After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples:

and they continued there not many days.”

Matthew 12:46-50

“While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring

to speak with him.

47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to

speak with thee.

48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? And who are my

brethren?

49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and

my brethren!

50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother,

and sister, and mother.”

Jesus honored Mary as His Mother, but He never gave her any special position other than that.

John 2:1-5

“And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:

And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.

And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.

Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.

His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.”

Mary is also venerated as, “The Mother of God,” which she is not.

The Doctrine of “The Assumption of Mary,” was pronounced in 1950.

This doctrine states that Mary never died, but was taken to Heaven without suffering death.

These doctrines place her in a blasphemous position completely foreign to Scripture.

Mary is worshipped by the Catholic Church.

This comes out of the pagan worship of, “The Queen of Heaven,” originating in Babylon.

The Babylonian worship had centered on the image of mother and child, centuries before Christ.

The worship of mother and child, with different names but great similarities can be found in

the pagan religions of many cultures.

This has come from Babylonia in the days of Nimrod and Semiramis.

Scripture makes it very clear, as Jesus stated firmly that only God is to be worshipped.

The fact that Jesus accepted worship, on several occasions is testimony to His claim to be one

with the Father.

Matthew 4:10

“Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the

Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”

Matthew 14:33

“Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the

Son of God.”

 

6.   500 AD

The dress of priests became different from the laity.

 

7.   593 AD

Pope Gregory introduced the doctrine of Purgatory.

The Roman Catholic doctrine of Purgatory is the teaching that there is an intermediate place

or state after death where a person may complete atonement for his past sins, thereby

satisfying God’s justice and qualifying to move on to Heaven.

The Church recognizes two kinds of sin; mortal sin which damms the soul, and venial sin

which places a person in Purgatory.

In Purgatory the person must go through a period of suffering for these venial sins before

being admitted to Heaven.

Most Catholics see themselves as unworthy or unholy enough to go directly to Heaven, and

therefore expect to go to Purgatory.

According to this doctrine, the time required in this intermediate state can be shortened by

those left behind; praying for the dead, by having Masses said for them or through

indulgences.

These actions required to shorten a loved one’s time in Purgatory involve the payment of

money to make them effective, thus providing a major source of income for the Church.

The entire concept of Purgatory is of pagan origin and contradicts the Word of God.

This false doctrine directly attacks the adequacy and finality of Christ’s sacrifice on the

Cross, for our full forgiveness and salvation.

This false doctrine requires human works in addition to Christ’s finished work.

Hebrews 9:27

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.”

To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.

2 Corinthians 5:8

“We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present

with the Lord.”

Philippians 1:23

“For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is

far better.”

The Bible tells us that Jesus body was offered once and for all; that the ministering of a

human priest can never take away sin.

Hebrews 10:10-14

“By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once

for all.

11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices,

which can never take away sins:

12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right

hand of God;

13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.

14 For by one offering he hath perfected forever them that are sanctified.”

It is the blood of Jesus Christ that cleanses us from all sin.

1 John 1:7

“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another,

and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”

Eternal life is in Jesus Christ.

If we have the Son of God, we have life and God wants us to know that we have eternal

life.

1 John 5:11-13

“And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God;

that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the

Son of God.”

The Word of God makes it abundantly clear that the finished, completed work of Jesus

Christ on the Cross, is absolutely adequate to cleanse us from all sins and to satisfy

God’s justice.

When we are born of His Spirit, His Blood is fully applied to us.

Jesus Christ took our sins on the Cross and he has paid for our sins in full.

When we have repented of our sins, and received forgiveness God no longer sees the sin.

 

8.   600 AD

Pope Gregory mandated Latin as the language of prayer and worship in the churches.

 

9.   600 AD

The beginning of the practice of directing prayers to Mary and/or the dead saints.

This was never done in the Church before.

We are taught in Scripture to pray to God alone.

John 16:23-26

And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you,

Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.

24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your

joy may be full.

25 These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I

shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.

26 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the

Father for you.”

 

10.        610 AD

The pagan Roman Emperor Phocas gave the name, “Pope,” (Universal Bishop) to the

Bishop of Rome.

Jesus did not appoint Peter or anyone else as the head of the apostles.

Scripture forbids such an idea.

Luke 22:24-26

“And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the

greatest.

25 And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them;

and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors.

26 But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you,

let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.”

Colossians 1:12-19

“Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the

inheritance of the saints in light:

13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us

into the kingdom of his dear Son:

14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth,

visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities,

or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn

from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell.”

1 Corinthians 3:11

“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

 

11.        709 AD

The beginning of – The kissing of the Pope’s feet.

This was taken from the pagan practice of kissing the feet of the Emperor.

God forbids such practice.

Acts 10:25-26

“And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and

worshipped him.

26 But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man.”

Revelation 19:9-10

“And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage

supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not:

I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus:

worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

 

12.        750 AD

The Popes gained temporal power.

 

13.        788 AD

The Church implemented the worship of the cross, relics and images.

This is idolatry, and idolatry is condemned by Almighty God.

Exodus 20:1-6

“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.

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything 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;

And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.”

Deuteronomy 27:15

“Cursed be the man that maketh any graven or molten image, an abomination unto the Lord,

the work of the hands of the craftsman, and putteth it in a secret place. And all the people

shall answer and say, Amen.”

Psalm 115

“Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for

thy truth's sake.

Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?

But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.

Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.

They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:

They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:

They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak

they through their throat.

They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.

O Israel, trust thou in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.

10 O house of Aaron, trust in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.

11 Ye that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.

12 The Lord hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel;

he will bless the house of Aaron.

13 He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great.

14 The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children.

15 Ye are blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth.

16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord's: but the earth hath he given to the

children of men.

17 The dead praise not the Lord, neither any that go down into silence.

18 But we will bless the Lord from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the Lord.”

Romans 2:22

“Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery?

Thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?”

 

14.        850 AD

Holy Water was introduced by the priest.

Holy Water is water with a little salt that has been blessed by the priest.

 

15.        890 AD

Saint Joseph was venerated.

We are commanded to worship The Lord and serve him only.

Matthew 4:10

“Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship

the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”

 

16.        965 AD

Pope John XIV instituted the baptism of bells.

 

17.        995 AD

Pope John XV began canonization of dead saints, although the Scripture

recognizes all true believers as saints.

Romans 1:7

“To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints:

Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.”

1 Corinthians 1:2

“Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus,

called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our

Lord, both their's and our's.”

 

18.        998 AD

Fasting during Lent and on Fridays was imposed.

Nowhere in Scripture does God command us to a set fast.

1 Corinthians 10:23-25

“All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for

me, but all things edify not.

24 Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth.

2Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no question for conscience sake.”

1 Timothy 4:1-8

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the

faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

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.

For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused,

if it be received with thanksgiving:

For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister

of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou

hast attained.

But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.

For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things,

having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.”

Romans 14:1-23

“Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.

For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs.

Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not;

and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.

Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? To his own master he standeth

or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.

One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike.

Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.

He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the

day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth

God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.

For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.

For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die,

we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.

For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of

the dead and living.

10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? Or why dost thou set at nought thy brother?

For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me,

and every tongue shall confess to God.

12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

13 Let us not therefore judge one another anymore: but judge this rather,

that no man put a stumbling block or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.

14 I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of i

tself: but to him that esteemeth anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean.

15 But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably.

Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died.

16 Let not then your good be evil spoken of:

17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and

joy in the Holy Ghost.

18 For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men.

19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith

one may edify another.

20 For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that

man who eateth with offence.

21 It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother

stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.

22 Hast thou faith? Have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in

that thing which he alloweth.

23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith:

for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.”

 

19.        1000-1000 AD

The Mass developed into a sacrifice.

The attendance of Mass was made mandatory.

Scripture teaches that Christ’s sacrifice was one time – for all.

This sacrifice s cannot be repeated.

The Lord’s Supper is a remembrance of what He accomplished for us.

1 Corinthians 11:23-29

“For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus

the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:

24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said,

Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying,

this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance

of me.

26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till

he come.

27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily,

shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.

29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself,

not discerning the Lord's body.”

 

20.        1079 AD

The celibacy of the priesthood was instituted.

This idea is foreign to the Apostles, as Peter had a wife.

Matthew 8:14-15

“And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of

a fever.

15 And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto

them.” Apostle Paul instructed that Bishops were to have a wife and a family.

1 Timothy 3:2-5

“A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober,

of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not

covetous;

4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the

church of God?)”

Titus 1:4-9

“To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace,

from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.

For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that

are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee:

If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused

of riot or unruly.

For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not self-willed, not soon

angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;

But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;

Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound

doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.”

 

21.        1090 AD

Peter the Hermit imitated the pagan practice of counting beads, or the rosary.

This practice is taken from the Hindu and Mohammedan religions, and is specifically

condemned by the Lord.

The Lord teaches us how to pray in Scripture.

Matthew 6:5-13

And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are:

for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets,

that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door,

pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward

thee openly.

7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they

shall be heard for their much speaking.

8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need

of, before ye ask him.

9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy

name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.”

 

22.        1184 AD

The Council of Verona authorized the inquisition of heretics.

This is contrary to the teachings of Jesus.

Matthew 5:1-48

“And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his

disciples came unto him:

2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be

filled.

7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake:

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you,

and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven:

for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour,

wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out,

and to be trodden under foot of men.

14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel,

but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works,

and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets:

I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass,

one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments,

and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven:

but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom

of heaven.

20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness

of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

21 Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill;

and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:

22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall

be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in

danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother

hath ought against thee;

24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother,

and then come and offer thy gift.

25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time

the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be

cast into prison.

26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid

the uttermost farthing.

27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:

28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed

adultery with her already in his heart.

29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for

thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into

hell.

30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee

that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

3It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing

of divorcement:

32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause

of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced

committeth adultery.

33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear

thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:

34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne:

35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great

King.

36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or

black.

37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these

cometh of evil.

38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:

39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right

cheek,  turn to him the other also.

40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak

also.

41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.

42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you,

do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute

you;

45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise

on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? Do not even the publicans the

same?

47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? Do not even the publicans

so?

48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”

Matthew 10:1-42

“And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean

spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter,

and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;

3 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus,

and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;

4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.

5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the

Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received,

freely give.

9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,

10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the

workman is worthy of his meat.

11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there

abide till ye go thence.

12 And when ye come into an house, salute it.

13 And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it:

but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.

14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that

house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.

15 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha

in the day of judgment, than for that city.

16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents,

and harmless as doves.

17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you i

n their synagogues;

18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against

them and the Gentiles.

19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be

given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.

20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the

children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.

22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall

be saved.

23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you,

Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.

24 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.

25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord.

If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them

of his household?

26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid,

that shall not be known.

27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach

ye upon the housetops.

28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him

which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? And one of them shall not fall on the ground without

your Father.

30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father

which is in heaven.

33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which

is in heaven.

34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her

mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son

or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward;

and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous

man's reward.

42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the

name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.”

 

23.        1190 AD

The payment of money for the forgiveness of sin began.

This is called – Indulgences.

This is commonly used to permit sin.

This was the catalyst for the Protestant Reformation.

The Protestant Reformation was the 16th-century religious, political, intellectual and cultural

upheaval that splintered Catholic Europe, setting in place the structures and beliefs that would

define the continent in the modern era.

The Protestant Reformation was the schism within Western Christianity initiated by Martin

Luther, John Calvin, and other early Protestants.

The Scripture teaches the facts of life that never change.

Romans 6:23

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our

Lord.”

 

24.        1215 AD

Pope Innocent III declared the doctrine of – Transubstantiation.

Catholics are taught that this is the act during Mass where the wafer is miraculously

turned into the actual body of Christ, and eaten alive by the priests and church

members, as well as the wine miraculously turning into the actual blood of Christ,

being drunk by the priest and church members.

Scripture condemns such an idea.

Scripture teaches us to take the Lord’s Supper, to remember his death and sacrifice

for us.

This is a good time to ask God for forgiveness of any sin you may have.

Luke 22:19-20

"And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying,

This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my

blood, which is shed for you.”

1 Corinthians 11:23-27

“For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you,

that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:

24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which

is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the

new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he

come.

27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily,

shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.”

 

25.        1215 AD

The Lateran Council began the confessions of sins to the priest.

This is to be done at least once per year.

Scripture commands us to confess our sins directly to God.

Psalm 51:1-19

“Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy loving-kindness: according unto the

multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight:

that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt

make me to know wisdom.

7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than

snow.

8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may

rejoice.

9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

14 Deliver me from blood guiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue

shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.

16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt

offering.

17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou

wilt not despise.

18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.

19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering

and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.”

Isaiah 1:18

“Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet,

they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”

1 John 1:8-10

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us

from all unrighteousness.

10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.”

 

26.        1220 AD

Pope Honorius began the adoration of the host – the wafer.

This is idolatrous worship of a man made god.

This is contrary to Scripture.

God is not a wafer – God is a Spirit.

John 4:24

“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”

 

27.        1229 AD

The Council of Toldeo made the Bible a forbidden book to laymen.

The Lord and all his Apostles taught, that me must read His Word.

Matthew 4:1-4

“Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.

3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God,

command that these stones be made bread.

4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone,

but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”

2 Timothy 3:16-17

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine,

for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”

 

28.        1287 AD

An English monk, Simon Stock invented the scapular.

The scapular is a piece of cloth with the Virgin on it.

This scapular is supposed to have supernatural powers to protect the wearer, and so

became a fetish.

 

29.        1414 AD

The Council of Constance forbade the Communion cup to laymen.

This is contrary to Scripture, which commands all Christians to partake.

Matthew 26:26-28

“And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it,

and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.

27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;

28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission

of sins.”

1 Corinthians 11:26-29

“For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he

come.

27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily,

shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.

29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself,

not discerning the Lord's body.”

 

30.        1439 AD

The Council of Florence officially established the doctrine of purgatory.

Scripture teaches that only the blood of Jesus will remit our sins.

John 1:29

“The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God,

which taketh away the sin of the world.”

Revelation 1:1-6

“The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants

things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto

his servant John:

2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all

things that he saw.

3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep

those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him

which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before

his throne;

5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and

the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in

his own blood,

6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father;

to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.”

Ephesians 1:1-7

“Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus,

and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:

2 Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all

spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world,

that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself,

according to the good pleasure of his will,

6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the

beloved.

7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according

to the riches of his grace.”

 

31.        1439 AD

The Church declared that there are seven sacraments.

This is contrary to Scripture.

The Lord has established two sacraments.

1.   The Lord’s Supper

2.   Baptism

Matthew 28:19-20

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father,

and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo,

I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

Luke 22:14-20

“And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.

15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you

before I suffer:

16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom

of God.

17 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among

yourselves:

18 For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God

shall come.

19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying,

This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my

blood, which is shed for you.”

 

32.        1508 AD

Part of the Ave Maria was introduced.

This was to be completed and approved later in the century by Pope Sixtus V.

The Ave Maria is also known as – The Hail Mary.

The Hail Mary is a Catholic ritualistic prayer asking for the intervention of the Blessed

Mother, in the lives of individuals on earth.

This is forbidden in Scripture.

We are taught to pray to the Father – in the name of Jesus, not Mary.

Matthew 6:9-13

“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy

name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom,

and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.”

John 14:12-14

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he

do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be

glorified in the Son.

14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.”

 

33.        1545 AD

The Council of Trent declared that church tradition was of equal authority with

Scripture.

Jesus condemned the Pharisees for nullifying the Word of God with their traditions.

Mark 7:1-9

“Then came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which

came from Jerusalem.

2 And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say,

with unwashen, hands, they found fault.

3 For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not,

holding the tradition of the elders.

4 And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not.

And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing

of cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables.

5 Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to

the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands?

6 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites,

as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.

7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments

of men.

8 For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the

washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.

9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may

keep your own tradition.”

It is not safe for anyone to add to God’s Word or to subtract from God’s Word.

Revelation 22:18-19

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:

19 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.”

 

34.        1560 AD

Pope Pious IV imposed his creed as the official creed of the Church.

It is the written Word of God that is the creed for all Christians.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof,

for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”

God magnifies His Word above His name.

Psalm 138:2

“I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy loving-kindness

and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.”

We are to reject all doctrine against the Word of God.

Galatians 1:8-9

“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.

9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you

than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”

God instructs us to study the Bible, and to shun any and all against His Word.

2 Timothy 2:15-16

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,

rightly dividing the word of truth.

16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.”

 

35.        1854 AD

Pope Pious IX declared the immaculate conception of the Virgin Mary.

Meaning that the Catholic Church declares Mary to be without sin.

This is error.

Scripture teaches us that all men have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God.

This includes Mary, the Mother of Jesus – who needed to be forgiven of her sins, as

all mankind does.

Romans 3:23

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”

Romans 5:12

“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin;

and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.”

 

36.        1870 AD

Pope Pious IX declared the doctrine of papal infallibility.

Papal infallibility is a dogma of the Catholic Church that states that, in virtue of the

promise of Jesus to Peter, the Pope is preserved from the possibility of error.

When, in the exercise of his office as shepherd and teacher of all Christians,

in virtue of his supreme apostolic authority, he defines a doctrine.

This is error.

Scripture states that all people lie if they say they are without sin.

God has commanded all to repent of our sins and to receive forgiveness.

1 John 1:8-10

“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse

us from all unrighteousness.

10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.”

Apostle Paul was very concerned with keeping his slate clean with God,

so that after he preached to others – he himself would not be condemned with the world.

1 Corinthians 9:24-27

Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize?

So run, that ye may obtain.

25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things.

Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection:

 lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.”

 

37.        1907 AD

Pope Pious X and Pope Pious IX condemned all discoveries and ideas of modern science

that was not approved by the Church.

The Popes were in error.

They have made themselves God, instead of submitting under God as Scripture

commands.

James 4:7

“Submit yourselves therefore to God.”

 

38.        1930 AD

Pope Pious XI condemned the public schools.

The Church should have helped the public schools, instead of condemning them.

The desire of God is that all mankind have life more abundantly.

John 10:10

“I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more

abundantly.”

 

39.        1931 AD

Pope Pious reaffirmed the doctrine of Mary, the “Mother of God.”

Mary is the woman that God placed Christ within.

Matthew 1:18

“Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was

espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the

Holy Ghost.”

Mary is the woman that raised Jesus, as every Mother raises her children.

 

Certain Issues, Questions & Explanations

1.   Is the Pope the Vicar of Christ?

The definition of Vicar:  A Vicar is a representative, deputy or substitute; anyone

acting "in the person of" or agent for a superior.

Firstly, Christ is His Word.

You cannot separate Christ from His Word.

John 1:1-4

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God.

All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.

In him was life; and the life was the light of men.”

Throughout all generations, from the very beginning the devil has tried to twist the

truth to men’s destruction, as he did in the Garden of Eden.

Genesis 3:1-7

“Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had

made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree

of the garden?

And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the

garden:

But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said,

Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened,

and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant

to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof,

and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked;

and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.”

Lies, deception and confusion are the devil’s methods against all humanity, including

the Catholic Church.

John 10:10

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.”

The devil desires to twist the leaders of the Catholic Church to their own damnation,

as they have added and taken away from the Word of God.

This activity is prohibited in Scripture.

Revelation 22:18-19

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:

19 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.”

God is calling all people to repent, which is to stop sinning.

God is calling all people to amend their ways, and then to keep them unto eternal life.

God is calling all people to read the Bible for themselves, and to study the Bible to show

yourself approved unto God.

2 Timothy 2:15

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,

rightly dividing the word of truth.”

God clearly warns us not to be deceived by every wind of doctrine, but to hold fast to

Scripture.

Matthew 24:4-5

"And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.”

Ephesians 4:14-15

“That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with

every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they

lie in wait to deceive;

15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head,

even Christ.”

Knowing, living and keeping truth is your choice alone.

Please choose wisely.

 

2.   What about the priesthood?

The Catholic Church has instituted their form of “priesthood.”

The Catholic Church has a priesthood, against the Scripture.

A priest is one who officiates the service of God.

A priest is to base their priesthood from Scripture, not manmade tradition – such as the

Catholic Church.

Jesus has warned us about the traditions of man in Scripture.

Mark 7:13

“Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered:

and many such like things do ye.”

The origin of priesthood is recorded in Genesis 14:1-20, as Melchizedek king of Salem is

named the priest of the Most High God.

Genesis 14:1-20

“And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar,

Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of nations;

That these made war with Bera king of Sodom, and with Birsha king of Gomorrah,

Shinab king of Admah, and Shemeber king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, which is

Zoar.

All these were joined together in the vale of Siddim, which is the salt sea.

Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year they rebelled.

And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaomer, and the kings that were with him,

and smote the Rephaims

in Ashteroth Karnaim, and the Zuzims in Ham, and the Emins in Shaveh Kiriathaim,

And the Horites in their mount Seir, unto Elparan, which is by the wilderness.

And they returned, and came to Enmishpat, which is Kadesh, and smote all the

country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites, that dwelt in Hazezontamar.

And there went out the king of Sodom, and the king of Gomorrah, and the king

of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same is Zoar;) and they

joined battle with them in the vale of Siddim;

With Chedorlaomer the king of Elam, and with Tidal king of nations, and Amraphel

king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar; four kings with five.

10 And the vale of Siddim was full of slime pits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah

fled, and fell there; and they that remained fled to the mountain.

11 And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their victuals, and went

their way.

12 And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and

departed.

13 And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew; for he dwelt in

the plain of Mamre the Amorite,

brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner: and these were confederate with Abram.

14 And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained

servants, born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto

Dan.

15 And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by night, and smote them,

and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus.

16 And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his brother Lot, and his

goods, and the women also, and the people.

17 And the king of Sodom went out to meet him after his return from the slaughter of

Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the

king's dale.

18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest

of the most high God.

19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of

heaven and earth:

20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand.

And he gave him tithes of all.”

The priesthood and the service of the tabernacle dates back to the freedom the Israelites

received from Egypt, by the hand of Moses and Aaron through Almighty God.

God commanded Moses to set forth the priesthood and erect a tabernacle for him and his

people in the book of Exodus.

Exodus 19:1-25

“In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt,

the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai.

For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had

pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel camped before the mount.

And Moses went up unto God, and the Lord called unto him out of the mountain, saying,

Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel;

Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and

brought you unto myself.

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be

a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words

which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all

these words which the Lord commanded him.

And all the people answered together, and said, All that the Lord hath spoken we will

do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the Lord.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick cloud, that the people

may hear when I speak with thee, and believe thee forever. And Moses told the words of

the people unto the Lord.

10 And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them today and

tomorrow, and let them wash their clothes,

11 And be ready against the third day: for the third day the Lord will come down in the

sight of all the people upon Mount Sinai.

12 And thou shalt set bounds unto the people round about, saying, Take heed to yourselves,

that ye go not up into the mount, or touch the border of it: whosoever toucheth the mount

shall be surely put to death:

13 There shall not an hand touch it, but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether

it be beast or man, it shall not live: when the trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to

 the mount.

14 And Moses went down from the mount unto the people, and sanctified the people; and

they washed their clothes.

15 And he said unto the people, Be ready against the third day: come not at your wives.

16 And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and

lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud;

so that all the people that was in the camp trembled.

17 And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood

at the nether part of the mount.

18 And Mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire:

and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked

greatly.

19 And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder,

Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.

20 And the Lord came down upon Mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the Lord called

Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up.

21 And the Lord said unto Moses, Go down, charge the people, lest they break through unto the 

Lord to gaze, and many of them perish.

22 And let the priests also, which come near to the Lord, sanctify themselves, lest the Lord 

break forth upon them.

23 And Moses said unto the Lord, The people cannot come up to Mount Sinai: for thou

chargedst us, saying, Set bounds about the mount, and sanctify it.

24 And the Lord said unto him, Away, get thee down, and thou shalt come up, thou, and

Aaron with thee: but let not the priests and the people break through to come up unto the 

Lord, lest he break forth upon them.

25 So Moses went down unto the people, and spake unto them.”

Exodus 40:1-16

“And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

2 On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent of the

congregation.

And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and cover the ark with the vail.

And thou shalt bring in the table, and set in order the things that are to be set in order

upon it; and thou shalt bring in the candlestick, and light the lamps thereof.

And thou shalt set the altar of gold for the incense before the ark of the testimony,

and put the hanging of the door to the tabernacle.

And thou shalt set the altar of the burnt offering before the door of the tabernacle of the

tent of the congregation.

And thou shalt set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and shalt

put water therein.

And thou shalt set up the court round about, and hang up the hanging at the court gate.

And thou shalt take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle,

and all that is therein, and shalt hallow it, and all the vessels thereof: and it shall be holy.

10 And thou shalt anoint the altar of the burnt offering, and all his vessels, and sanctify the

altar: and it shall be an altar most holy.

11 And thou shalt anoint the laver and his foot, and sanctify it.

12 And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the tabernacle of the

congregation, and wash them with water.

13 And thou shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments, and anoint him, and sanctify him;

that he may minister unto me in the priest's office.

14 And thou shalt bring his sons, and clothe them with coats:

15 And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, that they may minister

unto me in the priest's office: for their anointing shall surely be an everlasting priesthood

throughout their generations.

16 Thus did Moses: according to all that the Lord commanded him, so did he.

 Isn’t it interesting how the first active priest being mentioned and well known in the Bible

is Moses, and the fact that he was married to a woman named Zipporah and fathered two

children.

Exodus 18:1-5

“When Jethro, the priest of Midian, Moses' father in law, heard of all that God had done for

Moses, and for Israel his people, and that the Lord had brought Israel out of Egypt;

Then Jethro, Moses' father in law, took Zipporah, Moses' wife, after he had sent her back,

And her two sons; of which the name of the one was Gershom; for he said, I have been an

alien in a strange land:

And the name of the other was Eliezer; for the God of my father, said he, was mine help,

and delivered me from the sword of Pharaoh:

And Jethro, Moses' father in law, came with his sons and his wife unto Moses into the

wilderness, where he encamped at the mount of God.”

The Catholic Church via the devil has castrated the priests, from enjoying the bond of

marriage, as it was created to be by God.

I pray for your freedom, come out and receive life – in Jesus Name.

In the New Testament God has given to the Church these offices, for the work of the

Ministry.

Ephesians 4:11-15

“And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some,

pastors and teachers;

12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the

body of Christ:

13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God,

unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:

14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with

every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in

wait to deceive;

15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head,

even Christ.”

The truth is the Bible, the false is error.

The error needs to be repented of and then destroyed.

 

3.   What about the nuns?

God never states in Scripture the desire to isolate women in sorrow.

God never wanted any female to take a vow of poverty.

God never wanted women to cry continually, at the feet of the bleeding statue of Jesus.

Jesus died to give all women – Life More Abundantly.

John 10:10

“I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

Abundantly is the Greek word perissos;  Meaning over and above, more than is

necessary, superadded, exceeding abundantly and supremely.

Jesus wants all women to have a great life.

Jesus created women to have love in their life.

Jesus created women to be a help meet and to enjoy their husbands.

Genesis 2:18-25

“And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone;

I will make him an help meet for him.

19 And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every

fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them:

and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast

of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he

took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and

brought her unto the man.

23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh:

she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his

wife: and they shall be one flesh.

25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.”

Jesus wants husbands to love their wives.

Ephesians 5:25

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself

for it.”

One of the greatest relationships in life is marriage.

God instituted marriage and marriage is available for all those who desire it.

Apostle Paul refrained from marriage, and his opinion was that all should be as he.

Apostle Paul realized though all had their proper gift from God.

This is Apostle Paul’s words;

1 Corinthians 7:1-8

“Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to

touch a woman.

Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every

woman have her own husband.

Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife

unto the husband.

The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the

husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.

Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give

yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not

for your incontinency.

But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment.

For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift

of God, one after this manner, and another after that.

I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, it is good for them if they abide even

as I.

But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.”

If you are a nun or a priest, I pray for your freedom.

I love you and desire for you to experience a beautiful life under and with your Creator;

 on a daily basis.

I would desire for you to have a wonderful marriage and a home full of children and joy.

I want for you to have an awesome Kingdom Assignment, and enjoy every minute of it,

while enduring the issues that come along with life.

Come out of this demonically induced religion and be free in Jesus Christ.

This is what God wants for you – your freedom and your joy.

He is waiting, go ahead and take the first step and he will run with you, all the way to

wholeness.

 

4.   What about the birth control mandate?

The Catholic Church forbids people to use birth control.

This is a marital decision, not a Church imposed law.

This is against Scripture for the Church to impose these laws on marriages.

 

5.   What about lent regulations and abstaining from certain food?

This is once again not in Scripture, and is a manmade tradition.

God made all food to enjoy.

Acts 11:5-10

“I was in the city of Joppa praying: and in a trance I saw a vision, A certain vessel

descend, as it had been a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it

came even to me:

Upon the which when I had fastened mine eyes, I considered, and saw four-footed

beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.

And I heard a voice saying unto me, Arise, Peter; slay and eat.

But I said, Not so, Lord: for nothing common or unclean hath at any time entered

into my mouth.

But the voice answered me again from heaven, What God hath cleansed, that call

not thou common.

10 And this was done three times: and all were drawn up again into heaven.”

 

6.   What about the Catholic Church and the Empires of this world?

We know that the Catholic Church was contaminated and perverted by the sinful Roman

Empire, for their gain and power.

No one is authorized to counter Scripture with lies, to pervert the Word of Almighty God

to the deterioration and destruction of humanity.

Heed the warning and repent, or your eternal damnation will be great and exceeding.                      

 

7.   What about the Catholic Bible?

The Douay–Rheims Bible (pronounced /ˌduːeɪ/ or /ˌdaʊ.eɪ ˈriːmz/[1]) (also known as the

RheimsDouai Bible or Douai Bible, and abbreviated as D–R and DV) is a translation of the

Bible from the Latin Vulgate into English made by members of the English College, Douai,

in the service of the Catholic Church.[2] The New Testament portion was published in Reims,

France, in 1582, in one volume with extensive commentary and notes. The Old Testament

portion was published in two volumes thirty years later by the University of Douai. The first

volume, covering Genesis through Job, was published in 1609; the second, covering Psalms

to 2 Machabees plus the apocrypha of the Vulgate was published in 1610. Marginal notes

took up the bulk of the volumes and had a strong polemical and patristic character. They

offered insights on issues of translation, and on the Hebrew and Greek source texts of the

Vulgate.

 

The purpose of the version, both the text and notes, was to uphold Catholic tradition in the

face of the Protestant Reformation

which up till then had overwhelmingly dominated Elizabethan religion and academic debate.

As such it was an impressive effort by English Catholics to support the Counter-Reformation.

The New Testament was reprinted in 1600, 1621 and 1633. The Old Testament

volumes were reprinted in 1635 but neither thereafter for another hundred years. In 1589,

William Fulke collated the complete Rheims text and notes in parallel columns with those of

the Bishops' Bible. This work sold widely in England, being re-issued in three further

editions to 1633. It was predominantly through Fulke's editions that the Rheims New Testament

came to exercise a significant influence on the development of 17th century English.[3]

 

Much of the text of the 1582/1610 bible employed a densely latinate vocabulary, to the

extent of being in places unreadable. Consequently, this translation was replaced by a

revision undertaken by Bishop Richard Challoner; the New Testament in three editions

1749, 1750, and 1752; the Old Testament (minus the Vulgate apocrypha), in 1750.

Although retaining the title Douay–Rheims Bible, the Challoner revision was a new version,

tending to take as its base text the King James Bible[4] rigorously checked and extensively

adjusted for improved readability and consistency with the Clementine edition of the Vulgate.

Subsequent editions of the Challoner revision, of which there have been very many, reproduce

his Old Testament of 1750 with very few changes. Challoner's New Testament was, however,

extensively revised by Bernard MacMahon in a series of Dublin editions from 1783 to 1810.

These Dublin versions are the source of some Challoner bibles printed in the United States in

the 19th century. Subsequent editions of the Challoner Bible printed in England most often

follow Challoner's earlier New Testament texts of 1749 and 1750, as do most 20th-century

printings and on-line versions of the Douay–Rheims bible circulating on the internet.

 

 

Although the Jerusalem Bible, New American Bible Revised Edition, Revised Standard Version

Catholic Edition, and New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition are the most commonly

used in English-speaking Catholic churches, the Challoner revision of the Douay–Rheims

is still often the Bible of choice of more traditional English-speaking Catholics.

 

A.    The best version of the Word of God from its original Hebrew and Greek is – The King

James Bible.

The translation began in 1604and published in 1611.

This work was done for the Church in England, in the English language.

There are no additions to Scripture to aid the Church in worldy

wealth and Babylonian power outside of Christ, such as the Catholic Bible.

 

B.   Catholics are not taught to study the Scripture for themself.

This is against the commands of Christ, who has directed humanity to know and to

live by the Scriptures.

Matthew 4:1-4

“Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.

And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command

that these stones be made bread.

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by

every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”

Jesus wants all free and full of knowledge in order to have life.

Matthew 22:29

“Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the

power of God.

 

C.   There is only one authority and that is – The Word of God.

The Catholic Church has instituted manmade ordinances, regulations and rules that

come not from God, but from the devil to steal, to kill and to destroy human life.

It is forbidden to add or to subtract from God’s Word.

Revelation 22:18-19

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:

19 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.”

Please repent today, and be free.

May all Catholics everywhere experience the freedom that is only to be found, in a personal

relationship with God through Christ.
