John 3:16 KJV

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life"

 

Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: {9} Not of works, lest any man should boast.


First just let me say the bible teaches us that Jesus loves everyone equally from an imprisoned murder of any religion

 to the most saintly person you think you know.

 

I personally was actively involved in the catholic church for 30+ years starting as an alter boy, then to a pulpit reader,

weekday rosary leader and a knight with the knights of columbus.

 

Then as if GOD Himself tapped me on the shoulder and pointed me to specific bible verses to research

Had I ever researched catholicism? Did I ever question my religion? Was this because Grandma said I should go on Sundays? 

Could I even be doing something in conflict with scripture?

 

Here's what I found that caused me to leave.

Now by all means research it for yourself and prove everything against the scripture in the bible and the bible alone.

 

 

Deuteronomy 12:29-32

29 When the Lord thy God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their land;

30 Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.

31 Thou shalt not do so unto the Lord thy God: for every abomination to the Lord, which HE hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods.

32 What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

 

I found out that most of the catholic mass is based on pagan rituals that pre-date our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

I know I was SHOCKED!

The roman emperor in 300AD simply mashed a bunch a religions together and called it catholicism "the universal church" 

 

One of those religious rituals included making circular cakes to the "sun" god tammuz who was actually born on December 25th

and the people ate that circular cake to consume the essence of tammuz.

 

Free ebook - Please at least read pages 132-136

 

hmmmm I had no idea ... did you? Doesn't the catholic church claim to do the same with their jesus?

 

What did the bible just say to us about partaking in pagan practices?

We read in Deuteronomy ... not only are Christians not to do them ... but they are an abomination to GOD and GOD hates them.

That's pretty strong and clear to me.

I personally want to try and NOT do things that GOD hates don't you?

 

 

 

 

Why does the very holder of the eucharist look like a sun?

"Idolatry is the worship of an idol or a physical object as a representation of a god."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idolatry

 

 

 

 Exodus 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:

 

Leviticus 26:1

Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up [any] image of stone in your land,

to bow down unto it: for I [am] the LORD your God.

 

Acts 17:29

Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone,

graven by art and man's device.

 

Deuteronomy 4:16-19

Lest ye corrupt [yourselves], and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,

Isaiah 42:8

I [am] the LORD: that [is] my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

 

Revelation 21:8

But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars,

shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

 

 

 

Matthew 24:26

Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

 

Did you know that the meaning of chamber is: an enclosed space or cavity

Is the catholic "tabernacle" very clearly a "chamber" where the catholic church claims Jesus is?

The bible says BELIEVE IT NOT!!!

 

I was totally freaked out at this point.

 

THEN ... YOU BETTER SIT DOWN IF YOU AREN'T ALREADY

 


Is this even any likeness to Jesus Christ the only begotten SON (not sun) of GOD the Father?

 

What if the picture what people knee before, kiss with their mouth, and kiss their fingers and place it on the pictures feet

 is actually a picture commissioned by a Pope of his own murdering, homosexual illegitimate Son Cesare Borgia?

 

Even if it’s a 0.00000000001% chance… what does the BIBLE say to us?

 

Acts 17:29

Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver,

or stone, graven by art and man's device.  Ummm paint and a paint brush?

 

Deuteronomy 4:16-19

Lest ye corrupt [yourselves], and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure,

the likeness of male or female, (Jesus... Mary... Saints)

 

 

 

Revelation 17:4

And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls,

having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

 

Why please tell my WHY these colors?

Can't they pick blue and yellow? or just any other colors but purple and scarlet?

 

How many colors are there and they had to pick those?

 Can I go to heaven today and say to GOD hey these scriptures made me leave the catholic church they are not unclear to me....

Actually they are pretty blatantly clear. I do not want to be opposed to the WORD of GOD

 

I did some extensive research and couldn’t find a pagan ritual or any tradition that blew a trumpet 7 times every 7 minutes on the 7th day.

I'm not starting a new religion or anything but would I not be better off blowing a trumpet 7 times every 7 minutes on the 7th day

and claim I’m doing it for GOD then to go to the catholic mass? 

Does the bible indicate that GOD seems to like trumpets, does HE tell people to blow trumpets and does HE like number 7?

 

I think I could have been a person destroyed for lack of knowledge.

 

Hosea 4:6

"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee,

that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children."

 

 

Pray, research and think about these things I beg you!

 

 

2 Timothy 4:4 KJV

And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

 

Please don't reject the truth!

 

Galatians 1:9 KJV

As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

 

Does the roman catholic church preach a false gospel?

Does the Bible teach that the true gospel is salvation by grace through faith alone?

 

Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: {9} Not of works, lest any man should boast.

 

 

Are catholics even Christian or In Christ?

 

 

Why have priests left the catholic church?
