I have been a Christian for 28 years, or should I say I asked Christ into my life when I as 22.
So yeah, it took me this far to get were I am today with walking with Lord, IN the Truth
Enough about me, This is about find the truth in Christ.
But anyway, I have a friend who is Catholic, who now starting with this Maryism/Maryology, goodness sakes. Isaiah 44:17-18 and Isaiah 45:20
Surely, a man perverts the word of God. look at the religions we have this day.
History repeats itself. Read the Holy Bible. I believe, that's where the saying comes from.
So here's were the Lord has taken me with this belief and how man will pervert what the bible actually meant and how men over time, since Christs time here.
Some religions/or a man will even say the King James version has been changed, well yeah, but has the context been taken away. We have to be able to comprehend what the good Lord is saying don't we?
So I'll start with the Catholics belief's and then some, no Harm intended to my followers of Christ Jesus, or I should I say my Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ. I'm just compiling links of people that realized something has gone wrong with the word of God.... The bible does say and give warnings to those who pervert the truth of Our Lord Jesus Christ, The Gospel spoken in the Holy bible. Now why should I say anything to my people that I love, Just like Christ tells me too
If there be any offence taken, for none is intended to our Christian brothers and sisters in any Christian Communion.
The point here should be taken as, The word of God has been perverted by Men.
Just as through out the biblical times the bible shows each and everyone of us has read.
State of the Church of England
laid open in a Conference between DIOTREPHES
a Bishop, TERTULLUS a Papist, DEMETRIUS
a Usurer, PANDOCHUS an Innkeeper, and
PAUL a Preacher of the word of GOD
The bible does say in Revelations, to repent. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. (It also says some will not hear or see, why would it be there.)
Oh I am sure there are more, But according to the book Revelations there are only seven true churches... why would John say this, I don't think he is deceiving anyone do you?
So here are links and testimonies of Catholics who have left the church and why?
So if the Saints (we) here on the earth are not of this world, just in it.
Why would we be trying to access the passed on Saints to heaven, Do they have any right to hear us on earth praying through them. does make make any since?
No, they are present with Lord...
We are they saints here one earth. We are the ones you should pray for.
Show me anything Biblical, Stating use a Saint like Paul to pray to God... You can not.
Read up, and you find the passages here in the links these believers have provided, just for you. All of these Saints who have made web sites testifying to you, how you are being mislead.
Don't post here if you not read every page here. I don't need to convict you, the Holy Spirit the Lord, Our God provided Us, the counselor he sent and provided to Us!
John 8:12-29 (King James Version)
12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true. 14 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.
15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.
17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
18 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.
19 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.
20 These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.
21 Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.
22 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.
23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
25 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.
26 I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.
27 They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
John 16:6-8 (New International Version)
6 Because I have said these things, you are filled with grief. 7 But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. 8 When he comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment:
... I'll post any passage you want, strictly from the Holy bible but you have to open your heart to receive the Lord own words. Not any mans word.
It's no wonder the Catholic Bible is so different the Holy One, it's been taken out of the true meaning.
1 Peter 2:5 (King James Version)
6 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.
1 Peter 2:9 (King James Version)
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;
Hebrews 8: 1-3
1 Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;
2 A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.
3 For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.
Revelation 1:5-6 (King James Version)
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
1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:
2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.
4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
You see, Nothing but the Blood of Jesus can save us, That is exactly why he came in the flesh!
Pope: Other denominations not true churches
Benedict issues statement asserting that Jesus established ‘only one church’
“Christ ‘established here on earth’ only one church,” the document said. The other communities “cannot be called ‘churches’ in the proper sense” because they do not have apostolic succession — the ability to trace their bishops back to Christ’s original apostles. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19692094/
This Clearly is the spirit of Diotrephes mentioned here in 3 John 1:8-10 (New International Version)
8 We ought therefore to show hospitality to such men so that we may work together for the truth.
9 I wrote to the church, but Diotrephes, who loves to be first, will have nothing to do with us.
10 So if I come, I will call attention to what he is doing, gossiping maliciously about us. Not satisfied with that, he refuses to welcome the brothers. He also stops those who want to do so and puts them out of the church.
So this how I will show you, not by my words, but by your own fellow believers
