Roots of the
Church and roots of the Pope
What are the
original roots of the doctrine of Roman Catholic Church and what is
the root of the Pope? We are going to examine these questions in
this writing. If you are a member of Roman Catholic Church, I
challenge you to compare RCC's teachings and the word of God, and if
you are in open heart and mind you can see the real truth.

My claim is, that doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church is an anti-Christian. I prove my claim by the testimony of the Bible and by the testimony of Catholicism's history and by it how Roman Catholic Church teaches against the word of God (Bible) in their doctrines. Greek word antikhristos means antichrist. Greek word anti means: over against, opposite to, before, for, instead of, in place of (something), instead of, for, for that, because, wherefore, for this cause. According to the doctrine of Roman Catholic Church, Pope is the vicar of Christ, but in the light of the word of God, Pope pretends to be the vicar of Christ, but actually he is against the gospel of Christ. In the tiara of Pope had read: Vicarius filii Dei. Value of those letters is 666, which is the number of the beast. When Catholic Church noticed this, they removed that writing from the tiara. However, doctrine that Pope is (Vicarius filii dei) remained to Roman Catholic Church, and they say, that Pope is the vicar of the Christ. Therefore, Pope is in Roman Catholic doctrine vicar of the Christ and also gospel of Pope is against of Jesus' gospel. I claim that doctrine of Roman Catholic Church is an anti-Christian, and it has nothing to do with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Pope is an anti-Christian person, because the Roman Catholic system has been drunk of the blood of the holy people. There are estimations that Roman Catholic Church has killed about 50 millions people during its history. Book of revelation tells from the chapter 17 about Babylon of the great, which is the Mother of the Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth. Harlot describes always in the Bible practice of adultery either fleshy adultery or religious adultery. Religious adultery is serving of idolatry. This great harlot together with the beast makes war against Jesus and His disciples. The Great harlot is a religious system, which makes war against the gospel of Jesus. The Bible called this great harlot to this appointment: " Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of the Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth." Roman Catholic church called himself for the mother church and calls by way of ecumenicalism all churches and religions to be as one. This distinctive mark of the harlot suits to the Roman Catholic Church, because it is mother church. However, what makes of the harlot and Roman Catholic Church names great Babylon? Babylon and Babel words mean mixture and confusion. Babel is Hebrew and Babylon is the Greek name of Babel. I claim that Roman Catholic Church is the great Babylon, which has mixed the gospel with paganism and doctrines of ancient religion of Babylon. Now we must take short historical review of the religion of Babylon and compared it to the doctrine of Roman Catholic Church.
Tower of Babel was built in the
country of Sinear, when there was one language in all countries.
Around the tower of Babel were worshiping of idolatry. Intention of
this idolatry was spreading to all over the world. Religion of Babel
was the main religion after the big flood. Religion of the Babel is
the original source of all false religions of the world. The God
mixed in the Babel languages of all nations and demolished them from
there all over the world, lest the world would not pollute from this
false religion. People around of the tower of the Babel were devoted
to the worship of the idols. In the tower of Babel was practiced
religion, where were worshiped the sun. Nimrod was the ruler of
Babel and after his death his mother Semiramis started to lead
religion of Babel. Babylonians pursued eagerly astronomy, and they
dedicated Sunday at the day of the sun and Monday for the moon day
and other five days they dedicated to the other planets. When
Semiramis was leading the religion of Babel, she started to teach,
that from Nimrod had come the God of sun, in other words, Baal. When
Semiramis became pregnant and birth a son, she gave name Tammuz to
her son. Tammuz was worshiped as the sun of God. Semiramis started
also to teach, that she was maiden. Consequences of this she
developed cult of the mother and child, which symbol came mother
Semiramis, who had on her arm child Tammuz. On the head of the
Semiramis was set a moon and on child head the halo of the sun. Semiramis adjusted herself in this religion of Babel for the queen
of the heaven and for her must have worship as queen of the heaven
and only through queen of the heaven people can be saved.
In the religion of Babel was also in use a secret confession to the priest of Babel. In the religion of Babel was also sprinkling of water, they believed that this sprinkling of water cleanses them for theirs sins and by that for them are given new life. Babylonians repeated also prayers with rosaries. When Tammuz died Semiramis ordered 25th of December for an annual day of the feast. This day was also the birthday of Nimrod. As a result, from it came every year memorable day, where was the celebration, in which people were drunk and sacrificed children to Baal. On that day also Babylonians set up a tree to Tammuz, which was decorated with balls, which was symbolic to the sun. The mother child cult, which had started to Babel spread also to Egypt, where it named Isis-Horus. In Phoenicia, it was called Baal-Astarte. In Greece, it was called Afrodites-Eros. In Persian and Rome, it was called Mithras. Babylonians have also holy kingship, where the king came also the conciliator of blessings of God. In the religion of Babel was the priest council, which led the high priest (Pontifex). Priest of Babel didn't get to marry, it was forbidden from them. Making of the idol statues and pictures belongs to the religion of Babel. These pictures of the idol were bowed, and those pictures of idols were kissed, and they worshiped those idols.
When the state of Rome was born and developed so the religious life of Rome led by pontifex maximus (high priest). State of Rome was expanding, and Romans started to worship the gods of all nations. Religion of Rome was mixed with the Greeks, Egyptians, Syrians, Persians and Babylonians religions. To the state of Rome was born perfect mixture of the religions. Religious life became colorful, and for these reason Romans worshiped the emperor (Caesar), which made from the Emperor divine and by that way also to Rome came holy kingship.
Romans believed, that gods were affecting and commanding Rome in the seven hills ”De septem montibus virum”. To the Rome formed concept from this: The high town of the seven hills, which rules all over the world. Romans believed, that they must rule all over the world by Pontifex Maximus, who is a high priest of Jupiter. Symmachus, which was the Pontifex Maximus of Rome calls himself: Man of the seven mountains. This appointment; the man of the seven mountains has been left to the history from the early letter, where has said a high priest had called in the name Pontifex Maximus. In the opinions of Romans, world can only rule it, who rule in the Rome by the hills of the seven town. Julius Caesar also got a title of Pontifex Maximum and Emperors started also to use themselves these titles. Emperors led the state and also the religious life of Rome. Therefore, Emperor was Pontifex Maximus, high priest of the Rome.
Roman Emperor Constantine "turned" to Christianity 312 A.D, and he was pontifex maximus (high priest). Constantine took for himself name vicar Christi (vicar of the Christ). From the new religion of Constantine came common (catholic). Therefore, from the citizens of Rome were made “Christians” without repentance and conversion. Part of the disciples of Jesus went astray when joining to this Roman Catholic religion. However, fortunately also part of the disciples of Christ didn’t join to this deception, but they remained in church of God. Now Rome has a new religion, which formed Roman Catholic Church. Church leader Constantine built "Christians" churches, but with same time, he also delivered consecrations to the heathen temples. In the Roman Catholic religion of Constantine was in the beginning much freedom, and it accepted much differences. However, Roman Catholic Church had mixed gospel and heathen religion doctrine together and little by little it started to become steeper and didn’t accept the biblical doctrine, but it started to form its doctrines deeper and deeper to the direction of pagan religions. Roots of Roman catholic church are in 312 A.D., then Emperor declared that Christians' belief has come common religion of Rome, but roots of new covenant church of God are in the Pentecost day. In the manuscripts of Greek NT text is not Greek word katholikos/katholike (catholic), and so we also see, that Jesus Christ and apostles have never taught anything about the Catholic Church, but from the church of God.
- 2 Cor 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in all Achaia:
The apostle Paul nominated congregations in the province of Achaia for church of God, not Catholic Church. Remarkable is that Paul mentioned more churches than one, in other words, he mentioned many churches in all Achaia and nominated them for church of God. Therefore, we see clearly that the Bible doesn't teach anything about Catholic Church. Concept catholic first time appeared in history 110 A.D.
The concept "the Catholic Church" (he katholike ekklesia) can be found for the first time in the history the letter of St. Ignatius to the Smyrnaeans, written about the year 110. The words run: "Wheresoever the bishop shall appear, there let the people be, even as where Jesus may be, there is the universal [katholike] Church."
The Lord Jesus and apostles didn't use the word katholike, but (ekklesia Theou) the church of God, which is one (eis).
When Emperor Constantine “turned” to Christianity and when he had started the new religion, he nominated it for Roman Catholic Church. However, as we can see the New Covenant congregation of God born over 300 years before Constantine's Roman catholic church. Next, we follow an order of years how the forming of Roman Catholic Church doctrine has developed. In Rome Christians held on the Sabbath by Saturday. Romans kept theirs rest day on Sunday, where they worshiped the sun as a god.
Next I put in italics developing of Roman Catholic Church non biblical doctrines:
321 A.D. Constantine made day of the sun to the day of the rest.
Synod of Laodicea gave the command year 364: Christians must not judaize by resting on the Sabbath, but must work on that day, rather honouring the Lord's day; and, if they can, resting then as Christians. But if any shall be found to be Judaizers, let them be anathema (suspended, set aside) from Christ.
375 A.D. Started the worship of dead saints.
In the Bible is not anywhere, that believers must worship angels or dead saints. Catholics defend this doctrine by saying that in the book of Maccabees is a practice of praying the dead ones. The book of Maccabees belongs so called books of Apocrypha, which have not Biblical value, but are non biblical sources. Actually, the Bible denies contacting the dead ones:
9 ¶ When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits (the dead ones), or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
The Lord says in His word that among the nation of God can't be people who are consulting with the dead ones. Verse 11 is word consulter, which is in Hebrew sha'al and it means to ask, enquire and beg. Verse 11 is also words familiar spirits, which is in Hebrew owb and it means necromancer, ghost and spirit of a dead one. So the Bible denies praying of the dead ones, because asking and begging are forms of praying and the Bible denies that we can't contact the dead ones! The Bible says that contacting the dead ones is the abomination (sin) in the eyes of the Lord. Catholics say that church has practiced praying for the dead throughout its history since the days of the book of Maccabees. The truth is that the Bible denies it and Early Church did not teach anything about praying of the dead (in New Covenant books =New Testament), because it is the abomination in the eyes of the Lord and contacting the dead ones defiles people. Roman Catholic Church practice abomination in the eyes of the Lord, and this proves a rebellious character of RCC and also proves that actually RCC serves evil spirits, not God.
Lu 9: 29 And as he prayed, the fashion of his
countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.
30 And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:
31 Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.
Catholics defend praying of dead ones by saying that when Jesus talked with Moses and Elias, so talking to dead ones is not sin, and we must follow Jesus's footsteps and do like, He did. Jesus was not ordinary man, but sent from heaven to die for us and redeem us from the power of sin and satan. We cannot follow Jesus in all of His footsteps, we cannot die for sins, and we cannot live as pure life as He lived.
Jesus' talking to dead Moses and Elias happened as the Son of God, not only as ordinary man and Jesus was talking to them about His death and the atonement in Jerusalem at the place of Calvary. The Bible denies that the men cannot contact the dead ones, and if we do this it is a sin, because the Bible says it so clearly.
2Ki 13:21 And it came to pass, as they were burying a man, that, behold, they spied a band of men; and they cast the man into the sepulchre of Elisha: and when the man was let down, and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived, and stood up on his feet.
Some say that when the dead man cast into the grave of Elisha and when the dead man's body touched the bones of Elisha the dead man revived and stood up on his feet, so it is a proof that we can contact the dead ones. This is a wrong conclusion about this matter. The Bible denies that we can't be in contact to the dead ones, and 2 Ki 13:21, we must see that this man was dead, and others cast him to the grave, and this dead man didn't seek himself contact to the dead ones and either didn't those who cast him in the grave. However, the Bible very clearly forbid that we can't be contact to the dead ones.
378 A.D. Roman bishop Damasus inherited from the Emperor the title pontifex maximum and Vicar Christi. For roman Pope by that way came official inheritor for Babylonian high priest pontifex. From now on, all bishops of Rome have these titles. Immediately, when Damascus had come pontifex Maximum, so then came inside to Roman Catholic Church leading position Babylonians ceremonies. In addition, other heathen religions doctrines started to come inside to the Church of Rome.
Romans believed that gods effected and ruled in seven hills of Rome "De septem montibus virum". From this formed concept to Romans; High town of seven hills, which rules the whole world. Romans believed, that they must rule the whole world under the leadership of Jupiter high priest (Pontifex Maximus). Symmachus, who was the high priest of Rome (Pontifex Maximus) called himself for the man of the seven mountain.
According to the opinions of Romans, the world can only be ruled by him who rules in Rome, in the town of seven hills. Julius Caesar got the title Pontifex Maximum and like this way emperor started use also this title. The emperors led the state and also religious life of Rome, because the emperor was principal of the religion, the high priest (Pontifex Maximus).
Moreover, Popes hold themselves as an heir of gentile Jupiter high priest (Pontifex Maximus) and Roman Catholic Church openly admit this, because they have imprinted the name of Pontifex Maximus to mean the Pope!
Jupiter high priest (Pontifex Maximus) cult is the service of idols. Like this we can see to whom Roman Catholic Church worships and serves.
De 18:9 ¶ When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
1Ki 14:24 And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.
2Ki 17:15 And they rejected his statutes, and his covenant that he made with their fathers, and his testimonies which he testified against them; and they followed vanity, and became vain, and went after the heathen that were round about them, concerning whom the LORD had charged them, that they should not do like them.
2Ch 36:14 Moreover all the chief of the priests, and the people, transgressed very much after all the abominations of the heathen; and polluted the house of the LORD which he had hallowed in Jerusalem.
The Lord denies in His word that His nation can't imitate and live according to the abomination of Gentiles' idol worshippers. Roman Catholic Church openly admits that Pope is same as Pontifex Maximus, which was the Gentile idolatrous high priest in Babylon, who was the leader of idol worshippers. Roman Catholic Church, in fact, is serving an idol and doing abominations in the eyes of God, because among the nation of God can't be idolatrous Gentile high priest titles, habits and doctrines.
381 A.D. Started informal prayers to Virgin Mary, who was in church the mother of God and Queen of the heaven.
In the Bible is not anywhere, that believers must pray Mary and that Mary is Queen of the heaven. Bible teaches that believers should pray by the name of Father and by the name of Jesus, but the Bible doesn't teach to pray by the name of Mary. There is not any place in the Bible where Jesus Christ or the apostles would have given order to pray by the name of Mary. Jesus Christ Himself gave the clear orders to pray God (Father) in His (Jesus) name and the apostles obeyed Jesus:
Prayers teaching by the Bible
RCC's prayers to Mary
Joh 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
Joh 16:23 ¶ 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.
Joh 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
Joh 14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
Ac 7:59 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.
Col 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
Kol 3:17 Ja kaikki, minkä teette sanalla tai työllä, kaikki tehkää Herran Jeesuksen nimessä, kiittäen Isää Jumalaa hänen kauttansa.
Hail Mary, full of grace, our Lord is with thee, blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and in the hour of our death. Amen.
Remember, O most loving Virgin Mary,
The word of God (the Bible) teaches that God's nation must pray God (Father) in the name of Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ Himself ordered this command. The apostle Paul also confirmed it by saying that whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him. Whatever you do in word means praying, because we use words when we are praying and the Bible teaches us that we must use the name of Jesus Christ when pray God. Praying in the name of Mary is non biblical and sin against God, because Mary has not atoned our sins, but Jesus Christ atoned our sins and is our Saviour. Disciple Stephen prayed in the moment of his death Lord Jesus, not Mary. Roman Catholic Church teaches praying Mary and even praying her in the hour of the death. RCC is teaching false doctrine about praying by the name of Mary.
Mt 13:55 Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren (adelphos), James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?
Mr 6:3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters (adelphe) here with us? And they were offended at him.
Roman Catholic Church teaches that Mary is everlasting virgin, who has not
borne any other children as Jesus Christ. Again RCC is lying,
because the Bible says that Jesus had brothers and sisters. RCC
tries to twist out of these very clear Bible places by saying that
they were cousins of Jesus or relatives, but not brothers and sisters.
This claim is incorrect because Greek words adelphos
and adelphe mean brother and sister and cousin word is
in Greek anepsios and Greek word suggenes
means relatives and cousin.
If Jesus didn't have brothers and sisters by birth and if into question in Matt 13 and Mark 6 would be Jesus' relatives, not His brothers and sisters, so Greek NT would use word suggenes, which means relatives. However, Matt 13 and Mark 6 use Greek words adelphos (brother) and adelphe (sister). It is true that Jewish OT use about brother and sister also comprehension of relatives, but New Testament's Hebrew and Greek languages show us that into question weren't Jesus' relatives, but Jesus' brothers and sisters by birth.
Teaching of RCC that Mary is everlasting virgin is incorrect, because the Bible shows to us that Jesus Christ had brothers and sisters by birth.
Letter to Colossians has a testimony in which becomes apparent that Greek NT uses Greek cousin word anpesios, so a cousin in the language of NT are not adelphos or adelphe, but anepsios.
Col 4:10 Aristarchus my fellowprisoner saluteth you, and Marcus, sister’s son (anepsios) to Barnabas, (touching whom ye received commandments: if he come unto you, receive him;)
Gospel of Luke has a testimony that Greek NT uses word suggenes from relative, not adelphos or adelphe. Greek NT uses every time a word suggenes from relatives and always separates with different words relatives and brother and sister. This becomes apparent in Luke:
Luke 21:16 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren (adelphos), and kinsfolks (suggenes), and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.
Hebrew NT (The Orthodox Jewish Brit Chadasha) makes also clear difference between words brother and sister and relatives using different words:
Lu 21:16 And you will be handed over also by horim (parents) and achim (brothers) and krovey mishpachot (relatives) and chaverim (friends), and they will have some of you executed and you will die al kiddush ha-Shem,
Lu 1:36 And—hinei— Elisheva your krovah (relative) also has conceived a ben (son) in her old age, and this chodesh (month) is hashishi (the sixth) for her who is called barren.
Mark 6:3 Is not this one the Naggar (Carpenter), Ben-Miryam? The brother of Yaakov, Yosef, Yehuda and Shimon? And, are not his achayot (sisters) here with us? And they were taking offense at Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach.
Matt 13:55 Is this not the ben hanaggar (the carpenter’s son)? Is not his Em called Miryam? And are not his achim Yaakov, Yosef, Shimon and Yehuda?
56 And are not his achayot (sisters) with us? From where, therefore, came to this one all these things?
The testimony of the Hebrew NT is very clear because brothers (achim) and sisters (achoth) and relatives (krovey) are used different words. In Matthew 13 and Mark 6 is into question Jesus' brothers and sisters by birth. The testimony of the Bible is very clear and show that doctrine of Roman Catholic Church and about Jesus' relatives are wrong, because Jesus had brothers and sisters by birth.
394 A.D. Started daily mass in the Roman catholic church.
Teaching of the word of God
RCC's "holy mass" doctrine
Mt 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament (covenant), which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
1 Cor 11:
- Holy mass offering is continual offering of the new covenant, in which our Lord Jesus Christ, in the form of the bread and wine, by the hands of priest, bloodless way sacrifice himself to the heavenly Father.
- Holy mass offering is the same offering as delivered on the cross; only offering habit is another.
- Holy mass offering is the same as offering, which had taken place in the tree of cross, because in the both same- - our - -Lord Christ- - sacrifices and are sacrificed.
- Christ on the cross sacrificed himself with the bloody way; in the holy mass, he sacrifices himself on the bloodless way, because he doesn't suffer anymore and not die.
The Bible doesn't teach about doctrine of RCC's "holy mass". The word of God teaches that Jesus Christ offered one sacrifice for sins for ever and for by that one offering, He has perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Doctrine of RCC is "gospel of darkness", because they teach that Jesus Christ is offering Himself continuously in Catholic mass. The Bible denies that by saying that Jesus Christ offering in the Calvary was one sacrifice for sins for ever.
Wine and bread don't turn into blood and Jesus in the Lord's supper, but they are examples about blood of Christ and His own body. Jesus Christ said that wine was (example) His blood, which is shredded for many for the forgiveness of sins. In the Calvary took place this shredding when the blood gushed out on the body of Jesus Christ. Lord's supper (wine and bread) is not the same place as the Calvary, but Lord's supper is the place of remembrance of Jesus Christ, and we proclaim the death of the Lord Jesus, until He shall come. So the Eucharist of RCC is deception where they scorn offering of Jesus Christ by their doctrine where they teach that daily mass is the same offering, which took place in the Calvary. The Bible very clearly teaches that in the Calvary Jesus offered Himself by one offering for sins for ever. So RCC teaches "gospel of darkness". The apostle Paul said that if someone preaches another gospel as what is in the word of God, they are cursed. Teaching of RCC is under wrath of the God and RCC's "gospel" is making sin against God.
Catholics say that Eucharist is not symbolic matter, but wine is real blood of Jesus Christ and bread is the real body of Jesus Christ and His real presence. Catholics don't understand spiritual teaching of the Bible, where some things are taught as the symbolical way. I took into view some symbolic teaching of the Bible:
John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
Jesus Christ said that He is the vine, but it was symbolic teachings, because Jesus Christ is not really the vine, but son of the living God. In same verse Jesus Christ said that His disciples are branches of the vine. However, in reality, His disciples are not branches of the vine, but is only symbolic teaching. The vine teaching was a figure about Jesus Christ, and He is not really the vine.
John 10:7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
All around of the sheepfold was sheltered usually stone walls with thorny branches on the wall. To the sheepfold was only one entrance and as a task of the shepherd was at night settle down in front of this entrance and by this way protect the sheep from wild animals. As a matter of fact, Jesus Christ was not in real life the door of the sheep, but it was symbolic teaching that He will protect His disciples in the same way as the shepherd protects sheep in the sheepfold.
As we can see the Bible teach also symbolic teachings where things are figures from the reality. In the same way wine and bread are symbolic, but not real Jesus' blood and body.
431 A.D. Synod in Ephesus was accepted officially worship of Mary and concept the mother of God.
In Babel were prayers for queen of the heaven, who was virgin. Queen of the heaven was described as the mother, who had a child in his lap. In the Babylon was the same doctrine as is in the RCC. The council of Ephesus 431 A.D. publicized that as the true faith everywhere must profess that Mary the holy virgin is the mother of God. Roman Catholic Church says that they don't worship Mary, but venerate her. Actually, they are worshiping her, and proofs can be seen there what RCC's catechism teaches:
- 968 Her role in relation to the Church and to all humanity goes
still further. "In a wholly singular way she cooperated by her
obedience, faith, hope, and burning charity in the Savior's work of
restoring supernatural life to souls. For this reason she is a
mother to us in the order of grace."509
- 969 "This motherhood of Mary in the order of grace continues uninterruptedly from the consent which she loyally gave at the Annunciation and which she sustained without wavering beneath the cross, until the eternal fulfillment of all the elect. Taken up to heaven she did not lay aside this saving office but by her manifold intercession continues to bring us the gifts of eternal salvation .... Therefore the Blessed Virgin is invoked in the Church under the titles of Advocate, Helper, Benefactress, and Mediatrix."510
The Bible says that Jesus Christ is the only one who holds saving office, and He bring us the gift of eternal salvation and He is the Saviour and Mediator between a man and God.
1Th 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
2Ti 2:10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
Re 7:10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
1Ti 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
Heb 9:15 ¶ And for this cause he (JESUS) is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
1 John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
Heb 2:18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
So the Bible proves that RCC's doctrine is work of devils, not the gospel of Christ. And Jesus is the Son of God and Mary bore Jesus by conceiving of God's Spirit (Father), so we must remember that Mary didn't borne the Father, but Jesus. Of course Jesus Christ is God as Son of God, but Jesus is not the Father, and when Mary didn't borne Father. Therefore, it is not wise to call Mary as mother of God, because to Divinity belongs more as mere Jesus Christ. We have to remember also that the Father sent His Son and Son has submitted Himself under the power of the Father.
The Bible says that Jesus Christ is the Mediator and our Advocator and Succour is Jesus Christ. So we see clearly how RCC's teaching about Mary is false, because she is not Mediatrix, Helper and so on, but Jesus Christ is!
500 A.D. Came to the Roman Catholic Church clerical suits of priests, which separated them from other people of the church. Purgatory doctrine was taught first in Egypt and in Greece, from where it also mixed by other religions and came to Rome and to Roman Catholic Church.
The Bible doesn't teach that leaders (shepherds, elders) of the local church must dress priestly costumes. This habit is non biblical in the New Covenant. In the old covenant priest dressed priestly garments, but in the New Covenant order of Aaron old covenant priesthood has cancelled, so costumes do not anymore make the separation in God's nation in the New Covenant.
593 A.D. Gregorius the Great l opened way to the purgatory doctrine also to Roman Catholic Church.
210. What is purgatory?
Purgatory is the state of those who die in God’s friendship, assured of their eternal salvation, but who still have need of purification to enter into the happiness of heaven.
211. How can we help the souls being purified in purgatory?
Because of the communion of saints, the faithful who are still pilgrims on earth are able to help the souls in purgatory by offering prayers in suffrage for them, especially the Eucharistic sacrifice. They also help them by almsgiving, indulgences, and works of penance.
Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, 210-211
Catholics say that term "purgatory" (final purification) is not in the Bible, but the doctrine of "purgatory" is rooted into Scriptures (The Bible). Catholics also say that early church fathers (not Early Church, but after them so called church fathers) have taught some kind of final purification before entering to the Heaven.
The fact is that term and doctrine for purgatory we cannot find from the Bible, because the Bible doesn't teach anything about RCC's purgatory doctrine. Roman Catholic Church teaches that even though death of Jesus Christ enabled receiving forgiveness of sins, so it doesn't cancel all punishments for sins; so when a man dies, he must first suffer a certain amount of punishment in the purgatory before he can enter to Heaven. Catholics think that they must be at least little time in the purgatory in order to be purified from their sins and after that they can enter to Heaven.
The Bible doesn't teach anything about purgatory and besides that in the Bible is not even the word purgatory. Some Catholics defend purgatory in the Bible example 1 Cor 3.
8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.
10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
11 ¶ For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.
14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
This place doesn't teach anything about the purgatory. And if we can understand this place in a correct way we must watch few other verses to get right understanding of this matter.
Mt 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
1Pe 1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
The Bible teaches that Jesus Christ shall baptize those who believe in Him with the Holy Spirit and fire. When the Bible speaks about fire it speaks about as natural fire, as fire of judgement and as fire. Matthew 3:11 shows for us that when Jesus Christ baptize His disciples with the Holy Spirit, there come also fire of the Spirit, which tries also in this life our deeds that we might learn to live righteously and godly in this present world. Remarkable is that the Bible speaks about fire, which is testing us in this time! And that place is not the purgatory, but position to be and live in the Holy Spirit for the grace of God.
1 Cor 3 speaks about it that when we start to build upon the foundation, which is in Jesus Christ and fire will test every man's work, and which work abides, he gets the reward and if someone man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. This place tells that work, which has not built correctly shall be burned, not that this man shall be in fire of purgatory as in punishment. And when his work has been burned, he suffers loss, but shall be saved yet so as by fire. This means that when the work has been burned, although he shall be saved rather like by fire. However, there is no purgatory after death where Jesus' disciples would be as in punishment and then when they have cleansed, they go to Heaven, that is heresy and non biblical doctrine. And the Bible proves it very clearly:
Php 1:23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:
42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
The apostle Paul said that when he dies, he goes straight to be with Jesus Christ. Paul did not teach anything about purgatory. Jesus Christ said to the thief in the cross that he shall be with Jesus when he dies, and Jesus didn't teach anything about purgatory. The Bible teaches that after thousand-year reigns of Jesus Christ in the millennial kingdom come the judgement day where the dead ones will be judged after their works.
7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
11 ¶ And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
As we can see there is no purgatory, but judgement day where wicked ones (unbelievers) were cast into the lake of fire, which is eternal damnation.
Mt 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
Mr 9:43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
The Bible teaches that the hell, which is damnation and lake of fire is everlasting punishment and fire in the hell shall never be quenched. So the Bible doesn't speak anything about purgatory, but purgatory is RCC's non biblical doctrine.
600 A.D. Gregorius I commanded Latin as prayer and sermon language to the Roman Catholic Church.
They made it for the reason that they could practice dominion over people, because laymen didn't understand Latin and by that way RCC's priests and Popes could dominate and control laymen. They didn't succeed in this.
600 A.D. Prayers of Mary and death saints came to church of the Rome.
I have handled this issue previously and result was that Jesus' disciples can't pray Mary but God by the name of Jesus Christ and this means also that we can't pray either death saints.
600 A.D. Bonifatius, who was the bishop of Rome took the title Pope, and he claimed that he is the successor of Peter.
As the matter of fact bishop of Roman Catholic Church (Pope) is successors of the Babylonian high priests, which were called in Rome by the name of pontifex Maximus. In the Bible is not such doctrine, that Peter has successors or that in the Church of Rome is an office from successors of the apostle Peter.
1 ¶ The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder (sumpresbuteros), and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:
2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
3 Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.
4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
In 1 Pe 5:1 is words also an elder, which is one word in Greek (sumpresbuteros) and means a fellow elder. Peter didn't hold himself as the chief shepherd, but also as a fellow elder with other elders. Peter said that Chief Shepherd is Jesus Christ, because He is the head of the Church.
Eph 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
The Bible says that Jesus Christ is the head of the church. The Bible doesn't have the word Pope and Catholics doctrine about the Pope, that is the man made non-biblical doctrine.
Matt 16:18-19, And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
This Bible place is understood quite often truly wrong and very badly consequences. Catholic church teaches; that bishop of Rome is earthly Vicar of Christ (substitute of Christ, head of the whole visible church). Catholic church teaches, that Peter delivered ministry of principal of the church, catholic church appeal to this Bible place Matt 16:18. Teaching of the Catholic Church is the following; Peter is the rock to which church is built. From this has followed such catholic doctrine, that Pope is the only right successor of Peter on the bishopric of Rome and Pope is the visible head of the church, Pope Holy Father. This kind of teaching is completely against teaching of the Bible.
100 century A.D. Ignatius, who affected in the congregation of Antioch. He demanded for himself station to be a leader of the congregation instead of biblical leadership, biblical leadership is elders who lead the congregation. As consequences of Ignatius’ demand he rose over other elders and started to use himself the appointment of bishop. A bishop word developed from the Greece word [episkopos], which mean overseer. And then other elders [presbyteros] must stay in the subordination of the bishop. In the beginning bishop word meant many elders of the local congregation, not one man leadership.
Because of Ignatius’ wrong doctrine bishop was set to lead the whole province or larger areas. Responsibility of bishop had then several congregations, in other words, more than one congregation. This kind of apostasy from the independence of the local congregation enabled development, which as the result was born against the word of God national and international churches and denominations and leaders and principals of these different churches and denominations. When during the Roman Catholic Church was born papacy, so to this false position was defended on this false station of Pope. Station of Pope is claimed to be the heritage for Peter. However, I believe that also apostasy of Ignatius has affected a little bit being born of the papacy. Year 600 Bonifatius, who was the bishop of Rome took the title Pope, and he claimed that he is the successor of Peter. Although as the matter of fact bishops of Rome are successors of Babylonian high priests, which were called in Rome by the name of pontifex Maximus. In the Bible is not such doctrine, that Peter has successors or that in the Church of Christ is the office for successors of the apostle Peter, which is called the papacy; Furthermore, in the Bible is not a ministry called the Pope.
This delusion path developed very large deception. We have to reason take very seriously the word of God otherwise to us happen very badly, like we see. How has developed false station of Pope.
Greek words what are in the original text I put inside of the brackets and bold.
In the Bible is such a teaching that bishops are same ministries as elders. And as you can read Paul wrote bishops of Philippi, in other words, he wrote to the local congregation to Philippi and its bishops, which were many men not one man.
Act 20:17 And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus, and called the elders (presbyteros) of the church. 18 And when they were come to him, he said unto them, Ye know, from the first day that I came into Asia, after what manner I have been with you at all seasons, 19 Serving the Lord with all humility of mind, and with many tears, and temptations, which befell me by the lying in wait of the Jews: 20 And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publickly, and from house to house, 21 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. 22 And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there: 23 Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me. 24 But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. 25 And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more. 26 Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. 27 For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. 28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers (episkopos), to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
Now we can see that also in the local congregation of Ephesus were bishops (oversees = episkopos) who are elders of the congregation. And word oversees is plural, because the Bible is teaching to us, that there are many leaders in the local congregation and not one-man leadership. Bishopric of RCC is not biblical. The Bible is teaching to us that group of men called bishops and elders are leading local congregation. And in the word of God is not doctrine about the Pope.
Peter is for Greece [petros], which means, a little stone or block of rock, while rock is for Greece [petra].
Matt 16:18 Greece text: kagoo de soi legoo hoti su ei petros (Peter, little stone) kai epi tautee tee petra (the rock) oikodomeesoo mou teen ekkleesian kai pulai hadou ou katiskhusousin autees.
Jesus don't build the congregation on the foundation of man, because He is the head of the congregation. However, what this verse really teaches? Because Jesus is the head of the congregation, and nobody other, so I will write next to clarify this matter, even though the Bible doesn't tell direct to this matter; Jesus said by indicating Peter on His finger and said; you are Peter [petros]. Jesus continued by indicating on His finger to Himself and said; and upon this rock [petra] I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Everybody who believes the Bible understands, that Jesus Christ is the head of the congregation, only He, Amen. Eph 5:23: For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. We look over next for few Bible places, which indicate clearly who really is the rock in the word of God.
1 Cor 10:1-4, Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock (petra) that followed them: and that Rock (petra) was Christ.
Rock words in this Bible place are in Greek petra. The Rock is Jesus Christ.
Room 9:33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock (petra) of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
Isa 8:14 And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
Stumbling stone and rock of the offence is Jesus Christ. In this verse word rock is in Greece's text petra, not petros. This verse is the quotation for Isa 8:14. Jesus is the rock, not Peter.
Psalms 62:6 He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.
Psalms 89:26 He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation.
Rock of salvation is Christ Jesus, in the clear salvation plan of the Bible. In these places is Hebrew word tsur, which means God and rock. This tsur means so God and rock. Therefore, the message of the Bible about it that who is the rock is completely clear, the rock is Jesus Christ.
Catholic Church teaches, that when in Aramaic text Matt 16:18 is word Cephas = rock, so Peter is that rock where Christ found His congregation; and that Peter was the first Pope. That kind of teaching is the absurd claim, because we cannot find it in the Bible. In the Bible is not word Pope. And the Bible also proves to us that God is the Rock and the man is not the rock.
Roman Emperor Constantine "turned" to Christianity 312 A.D, and he was Pontifex Maximus (high priest). Constantine took for himself a name vicar Christi (vicar of the Christ). From the new religion of Constantine came common (catholic=katholikos/katholike). Therefore, from the citizens of Rome was made “Christians” without regret and conversion. However, very interesting is, that in Greek text of NT is not Greek word katholikos= catholic. Therefore, Jesus Christ and Peter and Paul didn’t teach anything about Catholic Church, but they taught from church of God.
709 A.D. Started in the church kissing of Popes foot, this habit came directly from the heathen traditions.
Kissing of Pope foot origin is in Gentile idol religions. The Bible doesn't teach that Jesus' disciples must kiss feet of shepherds (elders) of the church.
History records that Roman Emperor Galigula who was also Pontifex Maximum ordered that people must kiss his foot. When Roman Catholic Church was born this habit also came inside RCC and its teaching. Roman Catholics have said that this kissing of foot is an act of compliment showing of petitions. However, the fact shows us that origin of kissing of the foot is idolatrous and pagan.
24 And the morrow after they entered into Caesarea. And Cornelius waited for them, and had called together his kinsmen and near friends.
25 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.
We must know one thing that Cornelius was a Roman centurion, and he had lived in the empire of Rome, and he knew this idolatrous and pagan kissing of the foot system, because in Rome, they practice this evil idolatrous habit. In how this is connected the matter, which we are handling? Ac 10:25 word worshipped is in Greek proskuneo and means worship, a kiss to show reverence, kneeling to show respect; proskuneo word derivates for words pros and kuon and kuon word means of kiss as a dog is licking his master's hand. We must now remember that Cornelius was a Roman centurion, and that he fell at Peter's feet and try to worship him. Cornelius tried to kiss Peter's feet and by that way show reverence to Peter and worship. However, Peter denied this. Decisive is that Cornelius as Roman centurion knew the habit of kissing of the foot was practised in Rome. And the Bible exposes that Cornelius fell down to Peter's feet. So it is obvious that Cornelius wanted show reverence in a way that he knew.
Anyway the Bible doesn't teach anything about kissing of the foot, that Jesus' disciples must kiss the foot of another disciple. This habit kissing of foot in RCC is mere idolatrous and pagan habit as so many other doctrines of RCC are also.
783 A.D. Started worship of cross, images, and relics.
Religion without the presence of real God needs always some "holy" objects to whom religious people can show signs of worship, because they don't have life of God in their heart, they need "holy" object, which is to them like god or channel and way to god. And objects, which they hold as "holy" are channels of evil spirits to defile men, and those objects are not "holy" but defiled with evil spirits.
20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness
of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth
beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
De 4:16 Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,
De 4:23 Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the LORD your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which the LORD thy God hath forbidden thee.
De 5:8 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:
The Bible denies making of images of god not for those that are in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, or that are in the waters beneath the earth. God denies using of "holy" objects for His nation, that His nation can't serve Him through "holy" objects. The reason is there, that we serve living God, and His presence is in the midst for us in His Spirit, because the Holy Sprit dwells in the heart of Jesus' disciples, and we must worship Him in the truth and the Spirit, not by physical materials.
787 A.D. Nikea (Nicaea) synod legalized worshipping of the cross, pictures and religious relics.
The second council of Nicaea 787 A.D. summarized that the church shall defend any innovations written or unwritten ecclesiastical traditions that have been entrusted to the church. Synod decreed that the church must pay to tribute and respectful veneration for holy images. Synod said that this veneration is not full adoration, but honouring holy images with the offerings of incense and lights, as was piously established by ancient custom. Synod stated that he who venerates the holy images, venerates the person represented in that image. Synod stated that teaching of our holy fathers is strengthened, namely, the tradition of the Catholic Church and if people really want to follow the apostle Paul and the entire apostolic group, holiness of the fathers, people must cling fast the traditions, which the church has received. Synod decreed that the holy images represent Jesus Christ, the Lord God and Saviour, Lady without blemish (Mary), revered angels and any of the saintly holy men.
Church anathemas concerning holy
Greek word anathema means set apart, banished, exiled, excommunicated, denounced and cursed. The second council of Nicaea 787 A.D. decreed concerning about the holy images:
- If anyone does not confess
that Christ our God can be represented in His humanity, let him be
- If anyone does not accept representation in art of evangelical scenes, let him be anathema.
- If anyone does not salute such representations as standing for the Lord and His saints, let him be anathema.
- If anyone rejects any written or unwritten Tradition of the Church, let him be anathema.
The Bible doesn't teach about the "holy images"
Nowhere in the Bible is teaching about the "holy images". The holy images doctrine is RCC's non-biblical doctrine and RCC's tradition, but not the teaching of the Bible. Catholics say that they don't worship images and statues, but venerate them. Although RCC's prayers to angels expose that Catholics venerate and also worship statues and images:
Our Holy Guardian Angels (Catholic prayer)
Heavenly Father, Your infinite love for us has chosen a blessed angel in heaven and appointed him our guide during this earthly pilgrimage. Accept our thanks for so great ablessing. Grant that we may experience the assistance of our holy protector in all our necessities. And you, holy, loving angel and guide, watch over us with all the tenderness of your angelic heart. Keep us always on the way that leads to heaven, and cease not to pray for us until we have attained our final destiny, eternal salvation. Then we shall love you for all eternity. We shall praise and glorify you unceasingly for all the good you have done for us while here on earth. Especially be a faithful and watchful protector of our children. Take our place, and supply what may be wanting to us through human frailty, short-sightedness, or sinful neglect. Lighten, O you perfect servants of God, our heavy task. Guide our children, that they may become like unto Jesus, may imitate Him faithfully, and persevere till they attain eternal life.Amen
Prayer to the Guardian Angels (Catholic prayer)
My good Angel, Thou comest from heaven; God has sent thee to take care of me. Oh, shelter me under thy wings. Lighten my path, direct my steps. Do not leave me, stay quite near me and defend me against the spirit of evil. But above all come to my help in the last struggle of my life. Deliver my soul so that with thee it may praise, love and contemplate the goodness of God forever and ever. Amen
church's members request and invite angels to be guide for Catholics
by angel prayer. Catholic angel prayer also leads Catholics to
praise and glorify the angels and request angels to come help
Catholics in the last struggles of their lives. Catholic angel
prayer also speaks about delivering Catholics' souls. Preceding
elements belong worshipping of God. RCC's prayers show that
Catholics worship angels and statues. Angel prayers of RCC's lead
Catholics to serve evil spirits (guiding spirits). In occultism,
New-Age movement and religions of the world are guiding spirits, who
deceive people thus that they cheat people to think that they are
serving God, although they are serving evil spirits, which are
demons. RCC's angels are actually evil spirits, not real angels of
850 A.D. Came to Roman Catholic Church doctrine; from the holy water, where must be pinch of salt. After blessing of a priest from the water come holy. In the Bible is not this doctrine.
Catholics defend using of "holy water", because in the old covenant was used holy water. However, we must remember and understand that by the offering of Jesus Christ in the Calvary Jesus cancelled old covenant and order of priesthood of Aaron. In the same in the old covenant were animal offerings, but they also have been cancelled, because of offering of Jesus Christ. It is a sin try to work by things, which have been valid in the old covenant, but have been cancelled in the New Covenant. Holy water belonged to the old covenant priesthood, but is not valid anymore in the New Covenant!
Nu 5:17 And the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel; and of the dust that is in the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall take, and put it into the water:
11 ¶ If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?
12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.
890 A.D. In RCC started the worship of the holy Joseph.
Catholics claim that they don't worship saints, but venerate them. Actually, they are doing worshiping, because they proclaim someone as saint according to what he has done. The Bible teaches that all Jesus' disciples are holy because of Jesus' offering and participation of the Holy Spirit. So Catholics' choice to choose someone to be saints and made statues for them and this is not only venerating, but worshiping, because the word of God denies that we can't make images for death ones to serve them, and praying in their name is serving and worshiping, because Catholics invoke protection and petitions of the saints. Praying protection and petitions must point to God, not to men and not to dead ones. And when praying for protection and petitions belongs to God and are elements of worshiping, so Catholics are worshipping dead ones, it is clear fact!
1 ¶ And God spake all these words, saying,
2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
5 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;
Eph 1:4 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:
1Co 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 theirs and ours:
Catholic Church is big business making factory, because it sells many different statues, medals, holy water fonts, icons, rosary beds, scapulars and other vain worship objects. RCC collects and takes a lot of money for the people through these objects, and it is very big business and shows the attitude of greed, because Jesus Himself said:
Mt 10:8 .... freely ye have received, freely give.
The Bible teaches that worshiping and believing to God is free and don't need any religious objects, because we have the word of God and the Holy Spirit. The word of God and the Holy Spirit are the tools, which we need to worship Him.
Roman Catholic Church sells statues of saints, and this is making business and taking money for people. So around this saints matter is also behind money collecting and wrong teaching that those statues and dead "saints" could help and protect people. Roman Catholic Church is money making business by which they collect a lot of money. Very sad that Catholics have been lain by false doctrines and on top of everything else this lie leads them to eternal damnation.
1079 A.D. Pope Bonifatius VII ordained unmarried station to the priest (celibacy). The Priests of Babel were also forbidden getting married.
The Bible shows us, that apostles and Peter had a wife. The Bible doesn’t forbid marriage for apostles or priests (shepherds and elders).
1Co 9:5 Have we not power to lead about a sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and as the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas?
Priesthood of Roman Catholic Church is not Biblical. The Bible shows to us that local church elders are shepherds, bishops and leaders. Group of men leads together local congregation and there are not provincial leaders like one bishop leading one province and not Pope, who leads the whole church.
17 ¶ And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus, and called the elders (presbuteros) of the church. .......
28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers (episkopos), to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
1 Pe 5:
1 ¶ The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder (sumpresbuteros), and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:
2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
3 Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.
4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
In 1 Pe 5:1 is words also an elder, which is one word in Greek (sumpresbuteros) and means a fellow elder. Peter didn't hold himself as the chief shepherd, but also as a fellow elder with other elders. Peter said that Chief Shepherd is Jesus Christ, because He is the head of the Church.
1090 A.D. Church started to use rosaries. Hinduism also uses rosaries.
In the Bible is not doctrine from the rosaries. Catholics say that Rosary helps to keep in memory events and mysteries in the history of salvation, and that they thank and praise God for it.
Catholics Rosary consists following things:
- First they make sign of the cross and then they say Apostles Creed
- Secondly they say prayer of Our Father
- Thirdly they pray three times Hail Mary
- Fourthly they say Glory be to the Father prayer
- Fifthly they announce first mystery and then pray Our Father
- For sixth they pray ten times Hail Mary
- For seventh they pray Glory be to the Father
- Then they
announce second mystery and then pray
and then they repeat 6 and 7 and continue third, fourth and fifth
mysteries in the same manner
You can see how much they pay attention to Mary and after Rosary, they recommend to pray Hail Holy Queen prayer, which is pointed out to Mary. We have examined already beforehand that all prayers must point out to God in the name Jesus Christ and all what Jesus' disciples do in word or deed, they must do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him. Rosary is heretic invention, where Catholics emphasize Mary and pray Mary, but we must as Jesus' disciples to pray only God by Jesus Christ. This also proves that RCC is false religion, which deceive people with the false gospel.
1184 A.D. The synod of Verona ordained inquisition, the punishment for a heretic.
Catholics say that inquisition
practised against heresies. Catholic inquisition is farcical,
because RCC is full of heretic doctrines and the fact is that in
many case Catholics, who are themselves heretic use it against real
Jesus' disciples and by the inquisition, they also killed real
followers of Jesus Christ. And by inquisition Catholics heretics
have also killed other heretics, and this is so farcical in this
case. Catholics have been proving servants of evil spirits by
murdering and killing a lot of people by the inquisition. The real
servants of God don't invent such devilish invention as the
inquisition is. RCC is full the blood of innocents people and God
shall judge and punish this kind of evildoers. Jesus' disciples
don't kill and murder people, but devilish wicked people like RCC's
Jesuits are murderers and killers and all Catholics, who don't judge
these killing are also a participant to these cruel massacres.
Even today and nowadays Jesuits has killed people as an example, they have killed ex-Jesuit Alberto Rivera and many others ex-Jesuits and other people. Jesuits are doing these terrible assassinations, because they want to silence those who tell the truth about evil RCC system and by these terrible assassinations they also threaten people that they wouldn't dare to rise against RCC. Inside of RCC is also a group of murders (Jesuit) organizations, who are killers and murderers. God shall judge one day all these evil and wicked murderers.
1190 A.D. Started to teaching of the sales of the indulgence. In the Roman Catholic Church on the indulgence people can get forgiveness for theirs sins.
This doctrine is
not in the Bible. I have heard also Catholics defending this thus
that they say that Roman Catholic church has never imposed a sale of
indulgences and other people have been abused by some in the church
who have been sold them. Catholics teach that an indulgence is like
extra sacramental remission of temporal punishment; that RCC can
forgive sin by power of the keys by application of merits Christ and
of saints. Catholics also say that indulgence offers the means to a
penitent sinner to discharge this debt of sin during his life on
earth. RCC teaches that real indulgences are use of certain objects
as crucifix, rosary and medals.
RCC teaches heresy by indulgence doctrine, because the Bible says we can have forgiveness of sins only by merit of Jesus Christ in His blood, atonement and redemption, when we have repented our sins and believed to Jesus Christ. We cannot mix to salvation merits of saints (other people), or religious material objects, because salvation is the gift of God, not any work of men and material objects. RCC doctrine about indulgences is heretic and they mock in that teaching atonement work of Christ.
20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Tit 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
Ro 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
Eph 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
Heb 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
Heb 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
Heb 10:19 ¶ Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,
The Bible teaches that all people have made sin against God and the salvation is grace of God and gift from God by the blood of Jesus Christ, when He died and atoned sins in the Calvary. Those who repent their sins and believe Jesus Christ, they get salvation as the gift from God. The Bible also says that our works made by righteousness can't save us, but grace of God is our salvation in Jesus Christ and in his blood. The blood of Christ purges us and brings purification for sins, so says Heb 9:14 and Heb 10:19 confirms that the blood brings about forgiveness of sins, and it is the blood of Jesus Christ, which bring us forgiveness and purification for sins.
So very clear is that doctrine of indulgence is false gospel and RCC is cheating people with its false gospel.
This doctrine is not in the Bible. I have already handled same issue in section of Holy Mass.
1215 A.D. Pope Innocentius defined confessing of the sins to the priest, which is compulsory at the least once a year.
This doctrine is not in the Bible. The fact is that in Babylon was in practice confessing of sins to Babylonian priests. In babylon this confessing of sins to priest was compulsory, in which people must confess theirs sin at least once a year to priests. So this RCC doctrine about confessing of sins to priest is pagan doctrine and not Biblical teaching.
1Pe 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
1Pe 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
Re 1: 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 for ever and ever. Amen.
The Bible teaches that all Jesus' disciples are priests in the order of New Covenant and for the local congregation are leading group of men who are elders. The whole priest, bishop and Pope order in Roman Catholic Church is non biblical and not teaching of the Bible.
Jas 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
If we have made sin against our brothers or sisters, so first we must confess it to God, and then you must confess your sins to him or her who you have sinned. The Bible doesn't teach anything about that you must confess your sins to elders of the congregation, but him or her who you have sinned. Confessing of sins to priest comes for pagan religions (Babylon), and it is an evil and wicked tool to control people in RCC.
1220 A.D. Pope Honorius defined worshipping of the wafer.
This doctrine is not in the
Bible. Catholics say that in Euchrist happens transubstantiation
where wine turns to blood of Jesus and bread turn to the presence of
Jesus Christ, so bread is not bread anymore but Jesus present. For
these reason Catholics say that wafer is adored. Let's watch roots
of worshipping of the wafer.
People in Egypt worshipped the sun and on the altars of Egypt was circular form (shape of the sun) of unleavened bread made from small waffles. Egyptians' priest prayed above of little waffle, to make them to be holy; this worshipping of these waffles came to Egypt from Babylon. This bread represented the body of Phoebus and middle of it was initialing, IHS (Isis, Horus, Seth, Egyptian trinity). Then they told to the people, that miracle was happened. They said, that waffle has changed for the flesh of sun God Osiris and after that people ate their god. This Egyptian bread God ritual reminds almost perfectly doctrine of Roman Catholic Church Eucharist, in which catholic priest changes bread for Jesus. Roots of the Eucharist bread seem to be strongly in heathen religions. In the catholic Eucharist bread is also letters IHS or had been those letters.
Transubtantiation of RCC is not the Biblical doctrine, but Babylonian-Egyptian pagan doctrine, in which they taught that when priests pray above bread it turns flesh of god. So it very clear that RCC's Eucharist origin is for pagan religions.
1229 A.D. Toulouse synod refused the Bible from the laymen in the church and set to Bible for forbidden books.
Canon 14. We prohibit also that the laity should not be permitted to have the books of the Old or New Testament; we most strictly forbid their having any translation of these books." The Church Council of Toulouse 1229 AD
"No one may possess the books of the Old and New Testaments, and if anyone possesses them he must turn them over to the local bishop within eight days, so that they may be burned..." The Church Council of Tarragona 1234 AD; 2nd Canon
Catholics say that the Bible was forbidden to laymen by the council of Toulouse 1229 A.D (France), because of Albigensians heresy and because there heretics have twisted the Bible teaching to support their heresies. This claim is very funny and odd, because RCC is full of heresies, and it wanted to punish other heresies by taking Bible away from laymen. The most remarkable reason was that RCC wanted to control people and keep them away from the Scriptures that people wouldn't read the Bible, but would be obedient to RCC teachings. Council of Tarragona they confirmed prohibition reading of the Bible.
The Bible teaches that everyone who belongs to Church of God must read the word of God and that the Holy Spirit is the main teacher of Jesus' disciples teaching personally each Jesus' disciples and of course also elders of the congregation are teaching and then also all disciples must advise one another with the word of God.
Behaviour of RCC by setting the Bible among forbidden books shows that they are walking in the spirit of evil spirits who want to twist the word of God and want to keep out people from the word of God.
Year 1287 Invented scapular, which is a piece of brown fabric. Scapular is used with a picture of Virgin Mary, because it is assumed that scapular includes supernatural power. Roman Catholic doctrine teaches, that scapular protects Roman Catholics from all dangers, which holds it on the bare skin. Worship of the objects came to inside of Roman Catholic Church.
This doctrine is not in the Bible. The Bible says that God is our Protector and not any object or earthly man made materials. Using of scapular is calling evil spirits to work, because is working by the Holy Spirit and His is power is not in earthly materials or objects.
1439 A.D. In the synod of Firenze purgatory doctrine was announced for the dogma and official doctrine of the Roman catholic church.
This doctrine is not in the Bible. This issue is handled already in purgatory section.
1439 A.D. Doctrines for the seven sacrament were confirmed.
The Bible doesn’t teach those
seven sacraments like RCC teaches them. Actually, Bible doesn't call
them as sacraments. RCC teaches that church's seven sacraments are:
Baptism, Eucharist, Reconciliation, Confirmation, Marriage, Holy orders, Anointing of the sick.
The Bible teaches about baptism:
Pe 3: 18 ¶ For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for
the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the
flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
21 ¶ The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
Peter taught that water baptism is like figure of events happened in the flood. Now we have to understand this whole figure and see what has happened, in reality, in the days of Noah. God commanded Noah to build an ark, and Noah obeyed, in other words, Noah believed in God, and Noah was saved already by believing and after believing came water, which separated Noah and his family from ungodly. Noah and his family were already saved when the flood came. Peter taught that water can't put away the filth (sins) of the flesh. So it is also obvious that when water baptism can't bring about forgiveness of sins, so we can't teach that water baptism is the place of forgiveness of sins.
What the flood and water describes?
Isa 44:3 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:
Jer 17:13 O LORD, the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living waters.
Joh 7:37 ¶ In the last day, that
great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man
thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
The Bible teaches that the Lord God is the fountain of living waters and Jesus Christ taught that this living water is the Holy Spirit and Isaiah 44:3 confirms it. So in figure of Peter in his letter first was the faith of Noah and His family and then came the Holy Spirit (water). Water baptism is a figure for the work of the Holy Spirit, in which our flesh will die sins and are made alive in righteousness life in Jesus Christ.
The Bible teaches about Eucharist (Lord's supper):
I have handled this issue in sections of Daily Mass and Worshipping of wafer.
The Bible teaches about reconciliation:
Col 1:20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
Jesus Christ has reconciled us by His blood and death and resurrection and by this reconciliation we have peace and atonement of our sins.
The Bible teaches about confirmation:
Ro 15:8 Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:
1Co 1:8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ has confirmed promises made unto Israelites and He has atoned us and He also confirms us by the Holy Spirit and His words.
The Bible teaches about marriage:
Heb 13:4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
The Bible teaches that marriage is not sacrament of RCC, but order set by God where a man and woman live as a husband and wife.
The Bible teaches about holy orders:
1Pe 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
1Pe 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
Re 1: 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 for ever and ever. Amen.
The Bible teaches that all Jesus' disciples are chosen to be in royal priesthood and order of New Covenant is that old covenant priesthood is cancelled and all Jesus' disciples are now priests and local congregations are leading group of men, who are elders. RCC's priesthood is non biblical and wrong.
The Bible teaches about anointing of the sick:
Jas 5:14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
The Bible says that elders of the congregation, because elders are leading local congregation, not Catholic priest, bishops or Pope, because RCC's hierarchy of the clergy is non biblical.
1545 A.D. In the synod of Trenton was decided, that the traditional knowledge is as reliable as the Bible. In the synod of Trenton books of apocryphal were added to the Roman Catholics Bible. The Bible doesn’t teach, that traditional knowledge is as reliable as the Bible. The Bible teaches that tradition of men are vain worship of God.
Mark 7:7,8: Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 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.
Tradition of men is vain worship of God. The Bible doesn’t anywhere teach, that believers should follow tradition of church fathers. The Bible teaches, that we must follow the word of God, not the command or tradition of men. RCC teaches that all what God has informed to people, RCC will present it the world; RCC teaches that people must believe also RCC traditional knowledge, also that part which has not written to the Bible.
Col 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
Roman Catholic Church traditional knowledge is evil doctrine such as the whole RCC system is evil and non biblical.
1547 A.D. Roman Catholic church ordained in Trenton; if someone says, that the sacraments of the new law are not necessary for the salvation of the man, and they are futile and that without them man can get from the grace of the righteousness alone from the belief to God, although all sacraments are not compulsory to all, but he be cursed who reject sacrament of church.
We have seen already in section of doctrines of seven salvation that RCC's sacrament theology is non-biblical.
1870 A.D. Pope Pius IX announced the doctrine about infallibility of the Pope.
There is not in the Bible doctrine for the Pope or doctrine for infallibility of the Pope.
Gal 2:11 ¶ But when Peter was
come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be
12 For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision.
13 And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation.
14 But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?
15 We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles,
16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
Paul rebuked Peter and show to him, that Peter has not walked and taught uprightly according to the truth of the gospel. Paul said that Peter was fallen to compel some Gentiles believers to live as the Jews. Peter was not infallibility and neither is Paul, because Paul said; not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect (Php 3:12).
Catholics say that Gal 2:11-16 Peter's actions were matters of discipline and not with issues of faith and or morals. By these statement Catholics are again lying and deceiving, because Paul said very clearly that Peter had lived and taught against the truth of the gospel by teaching Gentiles to live as the Jews. Paul said to Peter that man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ. So the words of Paul show to us that Peter was fallen to teach old covenant laws for justification. Fortunately we can see Peter's letter that he preached the gospel of Jesus Christ and that rebuking of Paul was fruitful. Jesus' disciples must live under the order of New Covenant, not under an order of the old covenant, but in freedom in Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit.
RCC is teaching wrongly about infallibility of Pope, and also they teach wrongly by saying that Peter is the Pope.
1931 A.D. Pope Pius XI confirmed again the doctrine of Virgin Mary, God's mother.
Mary was the mother of Jesus, but not mother of Father God. In the Bible is not anywhere written words the mother of God, because the Bible doesn’t teach from Mary same way as RCC teaches. This issue is handled; Official worship of Mary and concept the mother of God section.
1950 A.D. Pope Pius XII announced the dogma that Mary was taking to the heaven. That dogma of Pope teaches, that Mary was taken to the heaven with her body and soul.
In the Bible is not such kind of teaching. Pope Pius XII teaches like this:
"Finally the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things, so that she might be the more fully conformed to her Son, the Lord of lords and conqueror of sin and death. [LG 59; cf. Pius XII, Munificentissimus Deus(1950).
This is RCC's own dogma, not teaching of the Bible. The Bible doesn't say that God made Mary as Queen over all things. This RCC doctrine based on Babylon Queen of the heaven cult doctrine, which RCC is teaching.
Re 18:2 And he cried mightily
with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen,
and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul
spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
The Bible says that God shall judge in the last days people who are practising Babylonian Queen cult.
Tower of Babel was built in the country of Sinear, when there was one language in all countries. Intention of religion of the Babel was to spread all over the world. ---> Roman Catholic church and Pope are creating through ecumenicalism one world church, that they can rule a whole world.
Religion of Babel dedicated the day of the sun for Sunday --- year 321 Constantine set day of the sun for the day of rest.
Semiramis queen of the heaven was eternal virgin in doctrine of Babel, although she bore a son called Tammuz. Semiramis queen of the heaven must pray and worship, and only she supplies salvation for the people --- Roman Catholic Church has the doctrine of perpetual virgin Mary, although Mary bore many children after Jesus. RCC teaches also, that Mary is queen of the heaven. Catholics must pray and worship Mary, and she supply salvation and take people to Jesus in the doctrine of RCC.
There was the mother child cult in the religion of Babel, where mother came for the symbol, who had on his arm child. On the head of mother was set the moon and on the child head, the halo of the sun --- Roman Catholic Church has the statue of Mary, where Mary holds in his arms Jesus.
In the religion of Babel was also in the use the secret confession to the priests of Babel --- Roman Catholic church has a confessional chair, where a priest announces forgiveness of the sins to people.
In the religion of Babel is sprinkling of water, which cleanses Babylonians their sins and brings them the new life --- In the Roman catholic church man gets salvation through water baptism, which also regenerates the man and the man get the Holy Spirit and a new life in water baptism according to the teachings of RCC.
In the religion of Babel were used rosaries --- Roman Catholic Church also uses rosaries.
December 25th day in the religion of Babel was the birthday of the death god --- Roman Catholic Church set Jesus' birthday on December 25. Jesus has been truly born in September or October.
In the religion of Babel was separated council, which had formed from the priest, and Pontifex led this council --- In the Roman catholic church Pope leads cardinals, who are priests.
In the religion of Babel priest’s had prohibition to get marry, it was forbidden from them --- The priest of the Roman catholic church is not allowed to marry, they have made the celibacy promise. The apostle Peter had a wife.
In the religion of Babel was worshiped the statues and pictures of the idols --- In the Roman catholic church also worshiped statue of Mary and the pictures of the saints.
So you see that RCC has adopted its doctrine directly from Babylon, and RCC is not the church of God, but deception of evil spirits.
Roman Catholic church fills up those marks of identification, which is anti-Christian. We must see things in the light of the Bible, that we can separate the wrong one from the right one. Roman Catholic church has mixed between gospel and false teaching, so it's against and vicar of the gospel of Jesus. Roman Catholic church has mixed between doctrine and ritual of the heathen religions and doctrines of the Bible. Roman Catholic church and its doctrine are deeply pagan and the roots of the Pope come from the heathen religions.
In reality, the church partly abandoned heathenism but partly preserved it because they acted the way the evil reads the Bible, and because they founded a religious institution religion and not the church. Church as the religious institution is not the church of God and that is why the religious institution was indeed driven to oppress women.
The Roman Catholic Church is a miserable and transparent false imitation of the church of God. What would be more pleasant to satan than create a “church” of his own and claim it to be the church of God though, in reality, it is a church institution dressed in paganism, and it has perverted the truth and made the truth a lie and a lie “the truth”. Would not this kind of plan and realization of it be a satanic master piece that would lead many to eternal destruction? Yes, it would be, and it is because the Catholic Church is exactly that kind of organization. In the past, the church institution made crusades killing people. Since many think that the church institution is the church revealed in the Bible, they were under the misguided impression that it was Jesus’ disciples who made those atrocious deeds. However, behind those atrocious deeds were religious butchers that is, the church institution imitating the church of God. A true disciple of Jesus will not take part in the sword mission or other bloodshed of that kind.
When the world erroneously thinks that the Catholic Church is the church of God, the real master of the Catholic Church can carry on there with all powers of lying leading its’ priests into pedophile and other sex scandals, etc. The world says: “Phooey, shame on you. And you say that you are believers.” Satan smiles contentedly when, because of all the perversion and sin in the church institution, people rather avoid faith and God. However, all these avoiding people do not realise that the church institution really is like a museum of Babylonian paganism that offers its’ members' rites of paganism for church taxes. It is sad that somebody pays for being eternally destructed, and that masses will be too without paying church taxes is as sad.
In Babylon, they worshipped the mother goddess and the Queen of Heaven and so rebelled against God. In his word God has revealed himself as Father and also Jesus spoke about God as Father. Satan turned the things upside down in Babylon (first of course satan deceived man in Paradise and made him fall into sin) where he deceived mankind to worship the mother goddess instead of Father the God. This is satan’s tactic and method, to turn the things upside down and make the lie appear as the “truth” and the truth as the lie. The first religion of mankind which satan used to deceive mankind was the mother queen religion (the Queen of Heaven). The Bible prophesies that Jesus will come back and take his people away from the earth and in the aftermath of that this present globe will be destroyed. The last deception of mankind will also be the rise of the mother queen religion to deceive mankind globally. RCC is the most deceiving organisation, which teaches queen of the heaven doctrine and by the doctrine about Mary RCC is preaching lie of Babylon about Queen of the heaven and RCC is teaching Babylon female goddess doctrine presenting Mary as Queen of the heaven.
Jer 7:16 ¶ Therefore pray not
thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them,
neither make intercession to me: for I will not hear thee.
17 Seest thou not what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem?
18 The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.
19 Do they provoke me to anger? saith the LORD: do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces?
20 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched.
The Bible teaches that practising of queen of heaven cult is a sin before eyes of God.
The Greek word for church is ekklesia and it means the called out and the church. Jesus said that people should repent and believe the Gospel. Here is a call to come out of darkness and the slavery of sin and born again by the grace of God into the church of God, ekklesia. Kyriakos, Kyriakon means the Lord. The institutional church teaches that it is from the word Kyriakos, Kyriakon that the word church is derived, which means the church institution, the people of God.
The religious church institution does not call people out of the world but call people into their church institution without repentance through water baptism. The word for “church” in the Bible is ekklesia, which means the church, Jesus' disciples. Kyriakon means the Lord, not the church or church institution, which has the word ekklesia for it. The word Kyriakos occurs twice in the New Testament:
1 Cor 11:20 When ye come together therefore into one place, [this] is not to eat the Lord’s (Kyriakon) supper.
The word Kyriakon occurs as the word Lord’s, which means Jesus Christ, not the church.
Re 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s (Kyriake) day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
The word Kyriake means the Lord that is Jesus Christ and not the church. The concept of “church” based on the word Kyriakos, Kyriakon, taught by the Roman Catholic church is thus without any grounds, and it does not mean the church (ekklesia) or owned by the Lord but the word Kyriakos means the Lord in those two verses in the New Testament. When the New Testament talks about the church, it uses the word ekklesia, not Kyriakos.
The Catholic Catechism teaches about the church in the following way:
882 The Pope, Bishop of Rome and Peter's successor, "is the perpetual and visible source and foundation of the unity both of the bishops and of the whole company of the faithful."402 "For the Roman Pontiff, by reason of his office as Vicar of Christ, and as pastor of the entire Church has full, supreme, and universal power over the whole Church, a power which he can always exercise unhindered.
816 "The sole Church of Christ [is that] which our Savior, after his Resurrection, entrusted to Peter's pastoral care, commissioning him and the other apostles to extend and rule it. . . . This Church, constituted and organized as a society in the present world, subsists in (subsistit in) the Catholic Church, which is governed by the successor of Peter and by the bishops in communion with him."267
The Second Vatican Council's Decree on Ecumenism explains: "For it is through Christ's Catholic Church alone, which is the universal help toward salvation, that the fullness of the means of salvation can be obtained. It was to the apostolic college alone, of which Peter is the head, that we believe that our Lord entrusted all the blessings of the New Covenant, in order to establish on earth the one Body of Christ into which all those should be fully incorporated who belong in any way to the People of God."
There is no such thing in the Bible at all, and you cannot find the concept of the church that the Catholic Church teaches in the Hebrew or the Greek Scriptures. The Bible teaches that the church of God is the group of people who believe in Jesus Christ and who gather together to build up each other in mutual faith. The institutional church, on the other hand, is something that you become a member of through a manmade ritual of infant baptism. The institutional church began to take the shape of the church institution when Constantine the Great mixed up the religions that influenced in Rome and Christianity. The institutional church and the church of God are two different things that are not to be mixed up. In 381 Rome declared Christianity the official religion of the state of Rome. The new religion of Rome was named the Roman Catholic Church. However, the church of God of the New Covenant was born at Pentecost more than three hundred years earlier than the Roman Catholic church.
The birth of the New Testament and the
Canon, how and in what way it happened? There are various teaching
and comprehension about it. The birth of the Canon is very
interesting and also very often understood insufficiently. I bring
forth issues, which show that common teaching for the birth of New
Testament is an erroneous conclusion, because RCC emphasizes its
role as the institution who has given the Bible to the mankind, and
this is not true. I challenge you to read and look over this section
very carefully, because it can lead you from the tradition to the
truth. The Bible says that prove (test) all things, hold fast that
which is good. Test this writing with the Bible and hold fast to the
good and reject that which is not Biblical.
The birth of the New Testament texts
I have made out a list for the writing time of the New Testament books. Precise writing time of all books we cannot know, but rather accurately we can define the right writing time. There are various interpretations about this, but we can place them approximately very close to the right time.
- The Gospel of Matthew: Some researchers say that it has been born about 50 A.D. I think that this is probable. Some say 60-65 A.D. and some 100-110 A.D. The most probable alternative is that it has been written very early. One proof which supports this is that in Matthew's gospel is prophecy destroying of Jerusalem's temple, which happened 70 A.D. This proves that this book has had to write before 70 A.D. In early Church was information that Matthew's gospel first was written in Hebrew (Aramaic) and then in Greek. Matthew was an eye-witness of Jesus and one of Jesus' twelfth disciples.
- The Gospel of Mark: According to sources of Early Church Mark had written his gospel in Rome at the same when the apostle Paul was in Rome. Thus Mark's gospel would be written about 64-68 A.D. Some say that it has been written 45-46 A.D. Some say that it has been written after 70 A.D. Estimation about after year 70 A.D. is not correct, because also Mark has prophecy about destroying of the temple. This gospel is written before year 70 A.D. Mark was also eye-witness of Jesus and one of Jesus' twelfth disciples.
- The Gospel of Luke: Luke was the apostle Paul' fellow worker and wasn't an eye-witness of Jesus. Thus he had to turn to those people (12 apostles) who knew Jesus, or he turned to people who were accurately instructed by 12 apostles. Luke had examined all things accurately and dedicated his gospel to the most excellent Theophilus. Luke wrote to Theophilus that he might know the exact truth about the things, which had been taught to him. This shows us that Theophilus had been Jesus' disciple. Some say that Theophilus was the high priest (37-41 A.D.) of Israel imposed by Romans. It is not probable that Theophilus would have been the high priest of Israel. He was the high priest of Israel, and I think that there must be some record in the history if someone from the high priests would have believed in Jesus Christ. It is not probable that Luke's gospel has been written 37-41 A.D. and dedicated to the high priest of Israel. The date of Luke's gospel is being assessed about 63-64 A.D.
- The Gospel of John: This gospel has been written after synoptic (Matthew, Mark and Luke) gospels. The date of John's gospel is about 85 A.D. Some say that John's gospel is the gnostic gospel, but this claim is not true. 1946 from Nag Hammad was found scrolls, which helped dating of John's gospel and synoptic gospels. On the basis of this evidence from Nag Hammad was found gnostic text written in 200-300 A.D. and these discoveries proves that Gnosticism was born much later as John's gospel was written. John's gospel is not the gnostic text, but text of Jesus' disciple, who was an eye-witness of Jesus and events of New Testament.
- Acts of the apostles: Acts of the apostles have been written about 63 A.D. Luke, who was the apostle Paul's fellow worker wrote both Acts of the apostles and Luke's gospel. Acts of the apostles are first book and account from the phase of Early Church. Acts of the apostle begin from the year about 30 A.D (depent on it, which is the accurate year when Jesus died), and it comes to an end 62 A.D.
- Letter to the Romans: Letter to the Romans is the letter written by the apostle Paul. The date of the letter is about 57-58 A.D. Apostle Paul wrote this letter from Corinth in his third mission trip.
- First letter to the Corinthians: The apostle Paul wrote this letter in Ephesus year 55 A.D.
- Second letter to the Corinthians: The apostle Paul wrote this letter 56 A.D. and probable in Macedonia.
- Letter to the Galatians: Some say that this letter has been written 49 A.D. and some 57-58 A.D. Apostle Paul was the writer of this letter.
- Letter to the Ephesians: The apostle Paul wrote this letter about 61-62 A.D. Paul wrote this letter being in prison in Rome.
- Letter to the Philippians: The apostle Paul wrote this letter 62 A.D. being in prison in Rome.
- Letter to the Colossians: The apostle Paul wrote this letter about 61-61 A.D. being in prison in Rome.
- First letter to the Thessalonians: The apostle Paul wrote this letter in Corinth 50 A.D. during his second mission trip.
- Second letter to the Thessalonians: The apostle Paul wrote this letter in Corinth about 50-51 A.D.
- First letter to Timothy: The apostle Paul wrote this letter about 66 A.D.
- Second letter to Timothy: The apostle Paul wrote this letter about 67 A.D. This was the apostle Paul's latest letter.
- Letter to Titus: The apostle Paul wrote this letter 64 A.D or 66 A.D.
- Letter to Philemon: The apostle Paul wrote this letter in Rome in prison 61-62 A.D.
- Letter to Hebrews: We don't know for sure the writer of this letter. During the history writer of the letter has speculated Paul, Barnabas, and Apollos. Accurate dating of the letter we don't know for sure. However, the letter has been written before 70 A.D., because the letter tells that old covenant temple offerings were still practised among Jews.
- Letter of James: James Jesus' brother wrote this letter. The date is uncertain, but some say 49 A.D. and some 62 A.D.
- First letter of Peter: Peter wrote this letter about 63-65 A.D. Peter wrote in his letter: The church that is at Babylon, elected together with you, salutes you; and so does Marcus my son. Some say that Jesus' disciples called Rome as name Babylon and thus Peter would have written his letter in Rome. However, the history doesn't know such information that Peter would have been in Rome. The history records that Jews didn't call Rome as Babylon before 70 A.D when Romans occupied Jerusalem and destroyed the Second temple, where more than 100,000 Jews died and nearly 100,000 became slaves in Rome. I don't believe that Peter would call Rome as Babylon, but more likely he was in Babylon as in Rome and wrote his letter from Babylon.
- Second letter of Peter: Peter wrote this letter probable 65-66 A.D.
- First letter of John: John wrote this letter about 90 A.D. in Ephesus.
- Second letter of John: John wrote this letter about 90 A.D.
- Third letter of John: John wrote this letter about 90 A.D.
- Letter of Jude: Jude wrote this letter about 75 A.D.
- The book of Revelation: The apostle John wrote this letter about 96 A.D.
The word of God. Precise and
accurate dating of all letters is impossible. However, important is
to remember that they all have been written and are the word of God
and announcement of the order of the New Covenant.
Roman Catholic Church
Clemens Alexandrian (150-215 A.D.) accepted and knew all current New Testament books as the word of God. Before and after Clemens were many who argued that the letter of Hebrews, the letter of James and the book of Revelation don't belong to Canon. Clemens believed that the Didache "Teaching of the Twelve Apostles" was also part of the canon. However, it is not the canonical book.
Long before the existence of Roman
Catholic Church the canon was already used in Early Church. Roman
Catholic Church has not borne the canon, but began to use letters,
which Early Church has canonized and used long before Roman Catholic
Church. Remarkable is that year 1546 Roman Catholic Church canonized
some old testament books of Apocrypha, they called them as 'Deuterocanonical',
which means 'secondary canon.' Roman Catholic Church has accepted
books as canonical, which are not canonical.
of the Canon
Marcion whom said to be heretical gnostic lived about 85-160 A.D. He made his own New Testament canon. Marcion accepted Luke's gospel and ten letters of the apostle Paul. We have very one-sided Church history, because Roman Catholic Church killed its opponents as the heretic and destroyed their works and have given a name of heretics the opponents of Catholic Church. Testimony of the Roman Catholic Church is not trustworthy in all, because it has been destroyed many books, which it has hold as heretical books. However, it is correct that Gnosticism is heretical. Marcion's imperfect canon was the very powerful maker, which led later forming of the Roman Catholic Church canon. Roman Catholic Church resisted heretic doctrines. However, they taught heretic doctrines as we have seen also through this writing.
The Muratorian Canon
The Muratorian canon (170 A.D.) L.A.
Muratori found in 1740. The Muratorian canon is the catalogue of the
New Testament writings, in which has been mentioned all the New
Testament books except the letter of Peter, the letter of James and
letter to the Hebrews.
Eusebius bishop of Caesarea published 325 A.D. list of the texts of the New Testament in his book Church History.
Eusebius recognised Acts of the Apostels, Paul's letters, first letter of Peter, first letter of John. He said that some are arguing about the letter of James, letter of Jude, second letter of Peter and second and third letters of John. Eusebius said that spurious books are the Acts of Paul, the Shepherd, Apocalypse of Peter, letter of Barnabas and the Teaching of the Apostles (Didache). Eusebius also said that the book of Revelation is disputed among some, but counted as recognized books for some believers. Then he also said that letter to Hebrews have accepted especially those Jews, who believe that Jesus is the Messiah. Eusebius said that heretic books are the gospel of Peter, the gospel of Thomas, the gospel of Matthias, acts of Andrew and John. Eusebius hold apocrypha books as heretical which were made during the New Testament era.
Athanasius bishop of Alexandria in 376 A.D. reckoned all 27 books of the New Testament.
The Third Church Council of Carthage
The Third Church Council in 397 A.D represented and accepted the official canon, in which was taken all 27 New Testament books (which are in current NT). Roman Catholic Church canonized officially 397 A.D. it what has been existed in the Early Church already few centuries. Representatives of Roman Catholic Church are proud that they have given the New Testament to Christians and to the world. However, the fact is that Roman Catholic Church canonized that which had been existed and use already in the Early Church. Roman Catholic Church got its canon from those who had been lived long before them and used and believed all 27 New Testament books.
The Council of Trent and books of Apocrypha
Roman Catholic Church gave the order about content of the Bible in 1546, in which they decided that Jerome's Latin Vulgate is official canon of the Church. Like this way Roman Catholic Church took old testament's era Apocrypha books to the Bible, which are not Biblical books. Roman Catholic Church's Bible contains books that are not Biblical. This is also the indication an attitude of the Catholic Church and how it continuously adds non-biblical things inside the Church.
Concept Catholic Church was born in 110 A.D. when believers begin to call Church meaning by that Church is general and universal (katolikos). In the Bible (Greek) is not the word katolikos, it means that Jesus Christ and apostles and Early Church didn't call Church as Catholic Church and this means that we shouldn't either.
Roman Catholic Church with Popes (word Pope is not in the Bible, but is man made doctrine and title in RCC) and archbishops begin to form after 312 A.D. when emperor Constantine converted for a Christian. Years 380-381 Caesar declared Christianity for the religion of the Rome and so finally formed officially Roman Catholic Church, which was and is false imitation for the real Church, which is the body of Christ; real Jesus' disciples who are born again in the Holy Spirit from the grace of God.
The truth is that Roman Catholic Church didn't give us canon of the New Testament, but God did it by the apostles and Early Church and thus Roman Catholic Church confirmed it. Which had been already existed and used in the Early Church.
Books of Apocrypha
In what way the Early Church accepted books as canonical? The books got the authority of canon that they were written by the twelfth Jesus' disciples. There are two exceptions in this rule, and they are Paul and Luke. Jesus Christ appeared personally to the apostle Paul and taught him. The apostle Peter accepted Paul's teaching and ministry and gave canonical authority to Paul letters in his own letters. Early Church also accepted the gospel of Luke without any doubts and so must we do also. Canonical books have authority of the word of God.
Old testament and new testament Apocrypha books don't have canonical authority, and they don't belong to the Bible (the word of God). The so called Apocrypha of the New Testament (The Gnostic Gospels) do not belong to the books of the Bible and most of them were written in the second century or later; so they are much younger than the canonical texts of the New Testament. The latest canonical text The Revelation saw the light in ca. 96 A.D. The Revelation of John ended the chain of Divine revelation, its’ message was for that time and will be until the final moment of mankind’s earthly history. So, no new revelation was needed anymore because the revelation concerning the whole historical era of mankind was already given. And before that everything that is essential was already said and brought up. The Apocrypha of the New Testament was born much later than The Revelation of John. Also this tells us that the new revelations are from a man and did not have the Divine authority since The Revelation of John was the end of God’s biblical revelation history. The Apocrypha of the New Testament share one feature: they show the influence of Gnosticism. The features characteristic of the Gnostic texts are also the following: Gnosticism placed itself in a higher position than Christianity and Gnosticism did not believe that Jesus was God. The foregoing features prove themselves that Bible’s teaching cannot be proven by the Gnostic Apocrypha, because Gnosticism placed itself higher than Christianity and believing Jesus to be an ordinary man made them people who did not want to have biblical faith, but rather they wanted to prove it wrong elevating their own faith. Thus the Gnostic texts can no way be considered the original texts of Christianity or works belonging to Christianity because the Gnostics regarded Christianity as their enemy and the Gnostics’ faith was “orthodox”. In reality, the Gnostics were in the same boat of deception than the church institution; they had different kinds of teachings but the inspiration for the teachings came from the same source: the headquarters of darkness.
There were different views prevailing in Gnosticism, e.g. some Gnostics taught that divinity is accomplished uniting man and woman. This idea also led some Gnostics to pursue divinity through sexual intercourse between a man and woman. However, there were also Gnostics, who abstained for sexual relationships. When we are aware of the fact that the Gnostics considered the Christians their enemies, and that they considered themselves better than the Christians, and they wanted to show in every way that Christianity was wrong, we understand why the so called Gnostic Gospels were born, which aimed to defame and distort the real gospel. The Gnostics went so far in this that they wrote the Gospels “anew” by distorting them; they pictured Jesus an ordinary man, who was united with divinity through Mary Magdalene. The Gnostic claim that Mary Magdalene was Jesus’ wife suited the Gnostics because that way they tried to claim that their own doctrine was true and their thoughts were supported. The idea of Jesus being married (uniting with divinity through a woman) is a Gnostic Gospel. In the same way another group, who was negative on sexual life, got more grist to their mill claiming through the “new” Gospels that Jesus was leading a sinful and immoral sex life. This way both groups used the “new gospels” as their spokesmen for attacking the Christians and the message of the Bible. That was a clever plot to defame others, but fortunately we know that the source of inspiration for these Gnostic texts has been in the headquarters of darkness, and the Bible has the truth about these things. The Bible does not tell us that Jesus was married, and He really was not married because he was not born to this world to get married but to die as the sin-offering for the sin of the world.
The Early Church and the Bible
The Early Church read books, which already existed and first ones were books of the old testament. Then came the New Testament books from which latest was the book of the Revelation.
The Bible tells that already very early times letters of the apostles have gone around in the Churches. This means that very early the letters of the apostles were available in the Early Church.
2 Pe 3:15 15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
The apostle Peter wrote his letter Jesus' disciples who were in lesser Asia and Asia. First letter of Peter tells us that the letters of the apostle Paul and Peter were read in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia. This proves for us that apostles' letters were in use of the Early Church.
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;
4: 16 And when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read
also in the church of the Laodiceans; and that ye likewise read the
epistle from Laodicea.
The book of the Revelation was read also in seven churches of Asia. The letter to the Colossians exposes for us that his letters were read in many churches. This proves also that the letters of apostles were spread existed churches. For this reason Clemens Alexandrian also knew all 27 books of the New Testament and hold them as the word of God.
Actually, RCC collected texts, which Early Church had already used about almost 300 years. So in fact RCC has not given us Canon of the Bible, but collected it, which was already used in Early Church.
God's word and its teaching have been existed all the time in the Early Church, since then when they were completed. Let's read those same texts, which congregation of God had read in the old covenant time and the time of the New Covenant. The centre of the New Testament texts is God the Father through Jesus Christ, this, we must always remember!
Pope Eugene IV
said “Buddhism is the religion of damnation ". Pope John Paul II,
however, said: "Buddhism is the religion of salvation.” The Catholic
Church teaches that: "The Pope is infallible, when he as the highest
shepherd and teacher of the church gives a decision which concerns
the whole church". One or the other Pope has made a mistake and the
doctrine of Catholic Church on the infallibility of the Pope is
broken. Actually, the Pope is not infallibility, because no man is
perfect, but every man is imperfect before God.
In the picture Pope John Paul II in year 1984 met the representatives of the Buddhist religion. The Pope's statement, that Buddhism is the religion of salvation is false, because Buddhism is serving idols. The Pope has also ecumenical relationships with Buddhism. The Vatican teaches today that all religions are equal, but God has set only one church in which all can be saved, which is the Roman Catholic Church. The Vatican's statements are very conflicting, because sometimes it gives statements like Buddhism is the religion of salvation, but says at the same time that salvation is only in the Catholic Church. This is the Pope's ecumenical target to accept other religions and churches, but to raise the Catholic Church above all other churches and religions.
In the picture, a Shiva priestess put the pagan idol mark in the forehead of the Pope (sign of the tilak). In this way, this Pope received the anointment of the Shiva religion. The Shiva religion is one branch of the Hindu religion. Hinduism and Shiva religion serves idols. Pope John II was openly idol worshipper and deceiver.
Ecumenicalism is so deceitful, which is a way of Satan to mislead and deceive believers and unbelievers so that people would believe that ecumenicalism is the work of God, where He connects all people to be one. The disciple of Jesus Christ does not have any part of this ecumenical work with the Pope and the Catholic Church. Disciples of Jesus Christ have to practice oneness with those who has born in the Spirit of God and not with the idol worshippers.
Pope John Paul II kissed the Koran in the year 1999. This kiss of the Pope was an indication of his huge respect towards the Koran, and an indication of his huge respect towards the religion of Islam. The Pope practised ecumenism with the representatives of Islam. The Pope spoke openly that the Catholic Church respects the religion of Islam.
The Bible says that we must love our neighbour, but we cannot accept the service of idols, which the religion of Islam represents. The Pope accepted the faith of Muslims and has prayed together with the representatives of Islam. The Religion of Islam represents the serving of idols and the disciples of Jesus Christ cannot practice unity of faith with the representatives of satanic religions. The purpose of ecumenism is to forge unity with the religion of Islam.
Roman Catholic Church is involved with
ecumenicalism and RCC gives a next kind of statements about in the
name of ecumenicalism:
Sunday 23 September, in the capital of Kazakhstan, Astana, Pope said:
‘There is one God’. The Apostle proclaims before all else the absolute oneness of God. This is a truth which Christians inherited from the children of Israel and which they share with Muslims: it is faith in the one God, ‘Lord of heaven and earth’ (Lk.10:21), almighty and merciful. In the name of this one God, I turn to the people of deep and ancient religious traditions, the people of Kazakhstan.
DOGMATIC CONSTITUTION ON THE CHURCH - LUMEN GENTIUM
Promulgated By His Holiness, Pope Paul VI on November 21, 1964
16. Finally, those who have not yet received the Gospel are related in various ways to the people of God.(18*) In the first place we must recall the people to whom the testament and the promises were given and from whom Christ was born according to the flesh.(125) On account of their fathers this people remains most dear to God, for God does not repent of the gifts He makes nor of the calls He issues.(126); But the plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator. In the first place amongst these there are the Mohamedans, who, professing to hold the faith of Abraham, along with us adore the one and merciful God, who on the last day will judge mankind. Nor is God far distant from those who in shadows and images seek the unknown God, for it is He who gives to all men life and breath and all things,(127) and as Saviour wills that all men be saved.(128) Those also can attain to salvation who through no fault of their own do not know the Gospel of Christ or His Church, yet sincerely seek God and moved by grace strive by their deeds to do His will as it is known to them through the dictates of conscience.(19*) Nor does Divine Providence deny the helps necessary for salvation to those who, without blame on their part, have not yet arrived at an explicit knowledge of God and with His grace strive to live a good life. Whatever good or truth is found amongst them is looked upon by the Church as a preparation for the Gospel.(20*) She knows that it is given by Him who enlightens all men so that they may finally have life. But often men, deceived by the Evil One, have become vain in their reasonings and have exchanged the truth of God for a lie, serving the creature rather than the Creator.(129) Or some there are who, living and dying in this world without God, are exposed to final despair. Wherefore to promote the glory of God and procure the salvation of all of these, and mindful of the command of the Lord, "Preach the Gospel to every creature",(130) the Church fosters the missions with care and attention.
RCC says that plan of salvation also includes the Muslims. Islam's religion is pagan religion, which worship idol and wrong god. Islam has nothing to do with believing of the Bible (word of God), but Muslims are equal misled as Catholics are, and for this reason they are working together in the work of ecumenicalism in the last days of mankind:
Re 17:1 ¶ And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
The Bible teaches in the book of revelation that in the last days on the earth affects' spirit of Babylon, in which they worship mother (RCC virgin Mary and religions goddesses things) religions. Mother of harlots is Babylon Queen of the heaven cult (RCC) and harlots are other religions, which are together by ecumenicalism deceiving inhabitants of the earth to worship devilish doctrines. All churches who practice ecumenical connection with RCC is participants of evil work and evil spirits. God shall judge everybody who is co-operating with Roman Catholic Church by ecumenical work or some other ways are supporting evil lies of RCC. RCC and ecumenical work are deceiving many churches and believers into the bosom of antichrist, so withdraw for those churches, who are working or supporting somehow RCC.
Many Christians have been deceived to believe that love your sisters and brothers mean that we have to keep those as our sisters and brothers, who are Catholics, who believe all false doctrines of Roman Catholic Church. If some Catholics say that they believe in Jesus Christ, but at the same they believe also to false and deceiving doctrines of Roman Catholic Church, so the Bible says that we cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils. We must believe to the Bible, not devilish doctrines of RCC. Roman Catholic Church has many ways into salvation, but the Bible teaches only one salvation by the blood and atonement of Jesus Christ. So my sisters and brothers are only those, who believe the Bible and don't mix the word of God to devilish doctrines. We must have unity and fellowship only with those who serve the Lord by the love and truth and don't mix the truth with devilish doctrines of RCC or other religions devilish doctrines. We must love Catholics as our neighbours, but we must also tell them the truth about RCC's deceptions.
1Co 10:21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.
Ecumenicalism is work of antichrist as intention to deceive all mankind to worship idols. Behind ecumenicalism is the illuminati, which is connected to RCC, because Roman Catholic Church, Masons, Jesuits, Club of Rome, New Age movements and international bankers, they all are the same bunch, and they have the same goal to make the new world order, where the mankind would serve evil spirits. We must understand that leaders of RCC are satan worshippers and proves for this is theirs evil doctrines and evil goals. Because all of those before mentioned groups are committed themselves to satan and evil spirits, and they hate the truth and Jesus Christ, so they want to establish new world order on the earth, which is "kingdom" of satan and they succeeded in this attempt for a little while, until Jesus Christ comes and destroys their kingdom, and He establishes His kingdom on the earth for thousand years, and after that this world will be destroyed and God makes New Heavens and New Earth and New Jerusalem, where live eternally all those, who have believed in God.
1 Tim 4:1-3: 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.
The apostle Paul wrote that during the end many believers will give up the faith and start to follow the teachings of the evil spirits. There is a hint in this verse to us about this teaching of the evil spirits. The hint is that they forbid marrying. The Catholic Church forbids its priests from marrying. This means that during the end times many believers will give up their living faith and believe the false gospel of the Catholic Church. By way of ecumenicalism, this verse comes true and is already coming true and partly has come true.
Inside of Roman Catholic Church has been happened many thousands pedophile cases, where Catholic officials (clergy) have been sexually abused little children. It is very grotesque that Roman Catholic Church teaches that it has the most superior doctrine of Christ and RCC says that it is the original church of God. In America many thousands Catholic priests have been accused taking part in pedophile. During last four decades in America 4100-4300 Catholic priests have been convicted quilty for the pedophile. Their victims have been 80-90% little boys. This shows for us that inside of RCC is very huge and large pedophile and homosexuality problem. Priest pedophile acts were touching of children, oral sex, sexual intercourse. Abusing cases happened ordinary in the home of a priest, in the church, home of the child, in the school and in the car.
So huge and large pedophile activity inside of Roman Catholic Church tells us that there is very big sex perversion problem in RCC. We must remember that in statistics was not other sexual sins, which Catholic priests and nuns have done. Inside of RCC is lesbianism in the midst of nuns and some nuns have become pregnant practising sex with priests and many abortions have been made to those nuns. It is also very clear that Roman Catholic Church doesn't represent the church of God, but is false imitation about church of God. Roman Catholic Church is an anti-Christian organization, not the church of God.
In the end of 2009 was sex scandal inside of Ireland's Catholic Church. One of the most popular priest "father" Brian D'arcy was in centre of this scandal. Murphy's report says that D'arcy knew and covered up pedophile priests. According to Murphy's report in Dublin's archdiocese has exposed five pedophile cases, where Catholic priests have sexually abused little children. During the investigation have been exposed eight new cases and that pedophile inside Ireland' Catholic Church is the nationwide problem and in every level inside of clergy.
Roman Catholic Church teaches in many places against the Bible. One of this error and incorrect teaching is where RCC teaches that church's priests can't marry, but they must live in celibacy. God has created sexuality of men and women as the beautiful gift inside the marriage. Because RCC distorts word of God in this case, so consequences are very terrible and pervert as the pedophile. Partial reason is for RCC's pedophile cases come by wrong teachings and homosexuality of priests. Homosexuality of Catholic priests appears there when a majority for abuse cases is focused on little boys. Pedophile cases show for us that those pedophile priests are slaves of sexual sins. This shows for us also that RCC is a religious organization, but not the church of God.
RCC's teaching which forbids priests marriage life and forces them in celibacy is a very strong reason for the pedophile. When you deny the right to marriage life and sex, so it bursts out as crooked and perverted sexuality. Because Catholic priest can't marry and practice sex with another adult (wife), he becomes the pervert person who begins to practice his sexuality to little children. This is very crooked sex perversion and criminal activity and sickening, disgusting fornication sexual sin.
4th century Catholics' emperors of Rome decreed that if some Christian converts to Judaism and if Jews obstruct conversion of other Jews to Christianity, they have deserved the death penalty; and Jews can't marry Christians, or hold public office, or own slaves (servants).
During the first crusade Jews communities were destroyed. Jews were forced to undress naked and only those survived and stay alive who accepted to become baptised with baptism of Roman Church. Crusaders thought that the Jews were enemies of God and Jewish race was more inimical to God than any other race. The Fourth Lateran Council 1215 decreed that the Jews must wear differently as other people. Reason was that nobody wouldn't have mistaken to associate or practice deeper connection with the Jews. Through dressing could separate the Jews and no confusion happened. 13th century Catholic Church ordered that Jews must wear the round patch in their clothes, that everyone could recognise them. If some Jew was caught without the patch, he lost his clothes. Roman Catholic Church has expelled the Jews from many countries. Pope Leo XII ordered 1826 that the Jews must confine to ghettos and their property must confiscate. Roman Catholic church confined the Jews to ghettos already in 13th century.
If we look accurately acts, which Roman Catholic Church has done against the Jews, so we notice that they are the same acts that Nazis have done against the Jews. Roman Catholic Church and Hitler felt that they were doing work of God when persecuting the Jews. Roman Catholic Church killed the Jews, Nazis also killed the Jews; Roman Catholic Church forced Jews to wear distinguish patches in their clothes, Nazis did the same; Roman Catholic Church believed that Jewish race was more inimical to God than any other race, Nazis believed that the Jews were subhuman who must be killed and they killed the Jews and Hitler thought that he was doing work of God when he was practising anti-Semitism. It is very clear that Nazis borrowed Catholic methods when they during the second world war committed genocide of the Jews, the holocaust. Nazis and Catholics have identical roots of anti-Semitism. Roman Catholic Church practised anti-Semitism earlier as the Nazis and Nazis used Roman Catholic Church anti-Semitic methods. It is very clear that anti-Semitic history of Roman Catholic Church displays that Roman Catholic Church's fruit is decayed and impregnated with evil.
Vatican was the first "state", which recognized Nazi-Germany's Third Reich. There is saying that Pope Pius XII was Hitler's pope. Pius XII acted visibly for the peace during the second world war and condemned also acts of Germans, but Pius XII close his eyes from deportation of the Jews years 1940-1942. In December 1942 Pius XII gave finally affirmative statement under pressure of Allies and then Pius XII said publicly murderers of the Jews were criminals, which must punish. 1940 Pius XII spoke against destructions, but didn't dare to name Nazis as criminals. Only 1942 December Pius XII has courage to say Nazis as criminals. September 1942 Pius XII gave a statement where he said that it was impossible to confirm rumours of Nazi atrocities and genocide against the Jews. The truth is that Vatican knew at that time genocide of the Jews. Vatican played the game where they were at the same on the half of Nazis and the Jews, but publicly they take up a position to defend the Jews in December 1942. Attitude of Pius XII comes into view 1941, when he said that Catholic Church condemns racism, but not rejects all orders, which are against the Jews. These orders are anti-Semitism of Catholic Church, which they practised whole time during the existence of Roman Catholic Church.
1943 Autumn Nazis invaded to Italy and Pius XII knew that soon begins Italian Jews deportation. Vatican knew the destiny of the Jews and Vatican concealed 477 Jews and 4238 were concealed to Roman monasteries and convents. However, October 16 Nazis arrested 1007 Italian Jews, from which 811 individuals killed immediately in Auschwitz. Only 16 of 1007 Jews survived.
2000 international Catholic-Jewish Historian Commission published the report "Vatican and the Holocaust". According to the report, the claim that Pius XII didn't understand seriousness of the Jews' situation during the second world war, but this claim proved to be inexact. Several documents proved that Pius XII was aware anti-Semitic acts of the Nazis. According to the documents Pius XII knew already acts of Nazis in January 1941. 1942 Pius XII received information genocide of the Jews in Lwow, but Pius XII didn't response. Commission exposed that Vatican didn't do enough in order to help the Jews to escape from the Europe. According to the commission Vatican didn't support the idea during the war that Palestine would be the home of the Jews, although Vatican claimed so. According to the report, some Vatican officials risked their career by helping the Jews, but the most Vatican officials didn't help the Jews.
In Roman Catholic Church were priests and bishops who involved to help Nazis to escape after the second world war. This escape route was called ratline (Vatican Ratline). Ratline helped Nazi's criminals to escape inter alia to Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Paraguay. Famous Catholic ratline helper was bishop Alois Hudal. Alois Hudal's name is connected helping of Nazi war criminals escape as Alois Brunner and Franz Stangl. Through Vatican Ratline helped several Nazi war criminals asAdolf Eichmann, Gustav Wagner, Klaus Barbie, Erich Priebke, Edward Roschmann and Aribert Heim.
Inside of Roman Catholic Church have been several anti-Semitic priests, bishops and popes. Several priests and bishops helping of Nazi war criminals proves that inside of Roman Catholic Church abides devilish evil. All officials of Roman Catholic Church weren't involved to the operation ratline, but the church which teaches that its doctrine and teaching are most perfect on Christendom can't interfere helping and favoring of Nazis, unless inside of Roman church abides evil. This also indicates that the doctrine and teaching of Roman Catholic Chruch are furthest on Christendom and actually Roman church represents the wrong and non-biblical gospel.
Every disciple of Jesus who loves God and His word is under an
obligation to tell the truth for Roman Catholics. Love Roman
Catholics and tell them the truth, that Roman catholic doctrine
doesn't base on to the doctrine of the Bible, but is mixture and
mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of the Harlots and of the
Abominations of the Earth. We have to understand, what word anti-christ
means, before we can understand this subject. All
religions are co-operating in ecumenical work in the last days and
are against the real truth and Jesus Christ.
Nevertheless, we must understand, that Greek word antikhristos
has a two meaning against and
instead of (vicar). Roman Catholic church has those
two characters, it is against gospel of Jesus, and it pretends to be
vicarious Gospel of Jesus. Anti-Christ has two faces it's with same
time against gospel of Jesus and try to pretend that he is vicarious
gospel of Jesus. There can be also believers inside of RCC, but they
can’t believe official doctrine of RCC, because it is another gospel
and not the gospel of Christ. If you are Jesus' disciple and inside
of Roman Catholic Church: Come out of her, God's people, that you be
not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues.
Jesus' disciples can't be participants for the whore of Babylon (RCC),
so come out of her and let God's
guide you to true church of God.
