This is so true …… And yet Catholics do not see this… And yes I too
see so many Catholics that show No Fruit …. And yet they think all is
going to Hell but them…. The bible is Gods Word .
We are the church not a gody looking church or pope. ..
We only Go to church to worship and praise …. To learn about Him .. Then
go out and find the lost…
The lost do not come on there own.. Back to the stall.. We have to go find
them. So Catholics you are lost. It is another Jesus. It is not the Door
you are going through. You are trying to go over the wall.
The council is of men’s ideas of what they think it is no better then the
dirt on the ground…
The real truth of the gospel? Has it never occured to anyone that the
gospel was written years after Jesus’ death? He never told us to write
anything down, what He told us was to commemorate His death through the
Sacrifice of the Mass, as shown in the last supper, which we did for years
before the gospels were written. Don’t forget Protestants broke away from
the Catholic church; it is them that lacks a full understanding of Jesus
Christ. Also, any “Christian” group that chooses to attack another
Christian group (expecially the founding group of Christendom) clearly
cannot be lead by the Holy Spirit.
“By elevating a Works-based system over grace…” —- Um…. I’m not sure
what Catholicism your talking about, but it’s not true Catholicism.
James: Faith without Works is Dead.
“works”… satan’s favorite split-hair keyword snare in all apologetic
Their error is in looking to the efficacy of “ritual” instead of God:
they are snared into this dependence on the eucharist and stations of the
cross and the confessional and the first communion and baptism by the whole
historic precedence, the visual process, a centuries old hierarchy, the
pomp, this church is the full forum for lie preservation…
Yes, technically, theologically speaking these sacraments are categorized
as “works salvation” but this classification is lost on the catholic who
otherwise is hard pressed to deny their faith in ritual, though happy to
argue its purpose.
This is funny. He is making a case against himself. “The vastness of the
Catholic church… its stronghold in europe and latin america. It plays a
large role around the world….” (Sounds like compliments) man… the
devil says divide and conquer… that’s protestantism. The Catholic church
is still here bros, and always will be. Its going to grow… trust me.
Nations come and they go, denomination upon denomination split… but the
Catholic Church remains. Its a ROCK. The gates of hell will not stand
against it. The grand protestant Christian experiment called the USA… is
failing. It is no longer a Christian nation.
The Bible says Jesus himself is God’s Word. (John 1:1-5, 14) The Bible also
says it is an incomplete record of God’s Word (Jesus), that God’s Word not
only can’t be completely contained in a book, but that the world could not
hold all the books necessary to do so. (John 20:30, 21:25) Yet these people
would have you believe the Bible is the ONLY source of God’s Word,
exclusive of all others. Their challenge is to present the Bible verse that
claims the Bible, the incomplete record of God’s Word, is the EXCLUSIVE
authority. The verse that denies Jesus gave authority to the Apostles (that
would deny the very definition of the Greek apostolos), that denies he made
them inspired (“God-breathed”) authority as stated in John 20:22, that
denies he acted and spoke through them as his instruments after his
ascension (Mark 16:20, Acts 5:12), that denies Jesus worked through them
after his ascension to choose new Apostles–establishing apostolic
succession (Acts 1:23-26), that denies the church (with no mention of
Scripture) is the pillar and ground of truth (1 Timothy 3:15), that denies
the church–with no mention of Scripture–is the ultimate place for a
sinner to hear his fault, and that whoever does not listen to the
church–again, no mention of Scripture–should be treated as a Gentile or
tax collector. (Matthew 18:17) Where is this magic Scripture verse that
contradicts all of this? Where is it?
From The Catechism of the Catholic Church: “Justification has been merited
for us by the passion of Christ…. Justification is the most excellent
work of God’s love made manifest in Christ Jesus…. Our justification
comes from the grace of God…. Grace is first and foremost the gift of the
Spirit who justifies and sanctifies us…. The merit of good works is to be
attributed in the first place to the grace of God, then to the faithful.
Man’s merit, moreover, itself is due to God…. Since the initiative
belongs to God in the order of grace, no one can merit the initial grace of
forgiveness and justification…. The charity of Christ is the source in us
of all our merits before God.” So where are you finding this alleged
“justified by our works” doctrine?
From the Council of Trent, Decree Concerning Justification, Canon 1: “If
anyone says that man can be justified before God by his own works, whether
done by his own natural powers or through the teaching of the law, without
divine grace through Jesus Christ, let him be anathema.” Earlier in that
document it says: [Jesus Christ] merited for us justification by His most
holy passion on the wood of the cross…. No one can be just except he to
whom the merits of the passion of our Lord jesus Christ are communicated.”
Where’s the beef?
If you can understand the following, you can begin to understand
sacraments: Think of a person you love very much. Imagine they could never
physically touch you. Imagine your relationship is purely spiritual, with
no touch. They couldn’t even hold your hand or put an arm around you when
you need encouragement–a purely spiritual relationship without touch.
Would you feel something was missing? Physical touch is necessary for us
(studies of newborns who are not held confirm this). It’s just as important
in our relationship with God. Because we are not purely spiritual beings,
we are physical as well and need to be touched by the ones we love and who
love us. God knows this. That’s one reason he took on human flesh–and the
Gospels tell us people longed to touch him. There is no more intimate
relationship you can have with another than for your body and blood to
become one with theirs. This is what Ephesians 5:31-32 is about. The
Eucharist is where Christ and his bride–the church (Isaiah 62:5)–become
one flesh. If you can understand this, you can begin to understand
sacraments. it’s not something we do–it’s something Jesus does for us, his
“The Bible is the sole, supreme authority.” There must be an authoritative
source for this statement to be true, otherwise it’s just their opinion.
The Bible, which they claim is the sole authority, doesn’t say this. So
this statement must have a non-Biblical source, which by their definition
makes it false. Simple logic, and zero credibility for them.
Why does Paul call the church “the pillar and ground of truth” and not the
Scriptures? (1 Timothy 3:15) Why does Jesus establish the church as the
ultimate place for a sinner to hear his fault and not the Scriptures, then
follows it up with “whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and
whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven”? (Matthew 18:17-18)
Where in the Bible does it say the Bible is the ultimate and only source of
truth–not one source, but the ultimate and only? Book, chapter and verse,
Jesus Christ started one church, it is the holy catholic church.
I was catholic for 30 years.When I looked around me I,nor any of my
catholic friends/family were living a life that reflected true fruits of
the spirit.Sure,we went to mass weekly,holy days,confessed,received the
eucharist but we were not transformed.I see fruits of the spirit in
noncatholics and they don’t receive the eucharist,yet many catholics that
do receive it show no fruit and/or practise traditions without
understanding why.It’s God’s Word that produces changes-that makes one born
so many brought up under this system of fear and guilt have thrown out the
baby with the bathwater. please don’t give up on christ, just coz ur
religion let u down. preach the truth brothers !
Yes, It breaks my heart but this is true… I wish they had also brought up
the problem with infant baptism in this video. it creates a false
understanding when people think they are infused by the holy spirit at
baptism..catholics think they are christians and that they are a part of
God’s family at baptism but the majority aren’t born-again. They don’t
understand WHY they need a savior… they have a hard time seeing
themselves as sinners because God’s perfect standard is hardly ever
