While I am quick to embrace an individual brother or sister with an earnest profession of faith in Jesus Christ, I unapologetically, unabashedly, and unrestrainedly CONDEMN the Roman Catholic Church for centuries of usurping the authority of Almighty God for the use of mere men, for hunting and persecuting regenerated saints unto death, and most wickedly of all, for denying the people the Word of Life, the hope of Salvation: the Holy Scriptures. They buried them in an unknown language (Latin) and prosecuted and murdered those who would dare to find them, read them, share them or publish them. With the Scriptures hidden, they were able to replace the pure gospel of faith in Jesus Christ, presented by His own Word, with their own hellish ideas of salvation by works. They beseiged the known world, obscuring true faith, and setting themselves up as the Christ, granting and denying salvation, fulfilling the woeful prophecies and lamentations of Jesus and the apostles.
Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to His disciples, 2 saying: “The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. 3 Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, and do not do. 4 For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. 5 But all their works they do to be seen by men. They make their phylacteries broad and enlarge the borders of their garments. 6 They love the best places at feasts, the best seats in the synagogues, 7 greetings in the marketplaces, and to be called by men, ‘Rabbi, Rabbi.’ 8 But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for One is your Teacher, the Christ,[ and you are all brethren.9 Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. 10 And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ.11 But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
13 “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.
Matthew 23: 1-13
Though my BROTHERS AND SISTERS fall asleep, rocked by sweet lullaby of ecumenism, I will continue to call them to WAKE UP, and return to the gospel before what is left of it has drained out of the mixture they have been drinking. As for true believers within the Catholic church, I know they exist. True love, the true gospel, calls them to come out of deception, not come teach it.
So sorry I can’t finish my post with soaring music that makes you jump to your feet and throw your hands in the air. I know, without that, how can it even be possible that what I say is true? You’ll have to judge for yourself.
