For My Catholic Friends...

 

 

How Would I Know?

As I was born and raised as a Roman Catholic, as I was an alterboy in grammar school, yes answering the priests prayers in Latin, as I once wanted to become a priest, I was a Roman Catholic up until the age of 35. What happened to change my mind? My mind was opened to God's Truth after 3 years of praying for intimacy with Jesus Christ. As Jesus Himself, revealed Himself to me through His Holy Word, the bible, I began to see and understand things differently.

While a Catholic growing up as a child, I was forbidden from attending other churches. It was in fact a sin I was told to do so. Our Lord still found a way to lead me to His Truth through the undeniable Truth in His Word.

My Catholic friends, I challenge you to THINK about what you already know. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please do not remain in darkness. And a few verses later...

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the beginning was the "Word" with a capital letter "W." Capital letters refer to God. The Word is HIS Written Word, each and every Word of the bible.

 

 

 

 

 

 

All of scripture is "God-breathed" meaning it is HIS Word to you and to me. And the Word WAS GOD!

And a few verses later, "And the Word became flesh." It is no secret even in the Catholic Church that Jesus IS the Word. Jesus IS the Bible. The Bible is Jesus's Words to you and to me. It is HIS message to us for this lifetime.

The Official Roman Catholic Catechism written by John A. Hardon, S.J. Doubleday press Copyright © 1981 having the "Imptimatur" and "Nehil Obstat" says in its introduction on page 23...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The author proceeds to justify this by saying that as one sees with St. Peter that, "the interpretation of scriptural prophecy is never a matter for the individual. Why? Because no prophecy ever came from man's initiative. When men spoke for God it was the Holy Spirit that moved them (2Peter 1:20-21)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Among what John writes to us children is...

Text Box: John 1:14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Text Box:  From the Book of John
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning.
JN 1:3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.
 

Text Box: From 2Titus 3:16 
 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Text Box: Also from the Book Of 1John
27 As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit--just as it has taught you, remain in him.
 

We are implored to remain in Him. Jesus Christ is Not the author of confusion. It is true that many parts of the bible are difficult for us to understand. God's Holy Spirit reveals to us that which He wants us to know. But please, do not throw the baby out with the bathwater, much of scripture is simple enough for a child to understand. And as a child would read God's word and understand them, how can one participate in a religion that contradicts God's Word. Not once, but a multitude of times. Not in secret, but blatantly.

Please do not feel safety in numbers. Do not feel safety in tradition. What is your answer to the question of "How long must a lie exist before it is no longer a lie?"

Just because your parents and grandparents practiced a certain way does not mean that it should be accepted as true. God has given us an intellect. He expects us to use it. Please, do not proceed blindly as sheep to the slaughter.

Seeking  God's Truth with the pure intention of wanting intimacy with Jesus Christ, of knowing HIS TRUTH will bring you to Him. Our Lord loves when we seek Him.

Text Box: From the Book of Matthew
Matthew 7:7 "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

Much of what has been written exposing the falacies taught in the Roman Catholic Church has been written by former Catholics. Unfortunately, the anger inside of them (and me) is intense. We are upset that the ones we placed all of our blind faith in have deceived us en masse. It is difficult to come to God's Truth by reading what has been written in anger. I suggest the very best way to come to know Jesus is by reading His Word beginning with the Gospel of John, then the Book of Romans thru to the end of the bible. Then read the book of Genesis, Proverbs and the rest of the bible. He will reveal Himself to you in His Truth. The false teachings will melt away in light of His Truth. There is one book I have come across that is void of that anger I referred to earlier. It is written quite objectively and I suggest is most palettable for practicing Catholics. It is an objective, factual comparison of the Catholic Tradition to the Word of God and I highly recommend it.

This book is an excellent factual comparison using excerpt from the official Catholic Catechism referred to earlier and the Bible.

The book is entitled, "The Gospel According to Rome" written by James G. McCarthy ©1995 published by Harvest House. The book can be found by typing the title into the search window at Amazon.com or your favorite bookstore. No, I do not own stock in Amazon.com. A link to Amazon.com is given below:

Link: "The Gospel According to Rome"

As for other links, while they may seem emotion packed, they still speak the Truth. The links below are guaranteed to ruffle your feathers. All they want you to see is that 2+2 ≠ 7. They do try to connect the dots for you and show you where 2 + 2 = 4. Please read them with that understanding in mind and with your sincere desire to know God's Truth!!!    

There is no need for me to say much more except that for you to click on the links below to read and learn or to simply read your bible, you will have goosebumps.     

A Feather Ruffling Link... (Just surf off of this link)

Text Box: From the Book of Apocolypse (Revelation)
Jesus tells us Revelation 20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.
REV 3:21 To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."

 

Text Box: From the Book of 1John
1JN 2:12 I write to you, dear children, because your sins have been forgiven on account of his name.
1JN 2:13 I write to you, fathers, because you have known him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I write to you, dear children, because you have known the Father.
1JN 2:14 I write to you, fathers, because you have known him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God lives in you, and you have overcome the evil one.
 

Text Box: "Always kept in view, however, was the fact that, from the Catholic standpoint, the Scriptures are not self-explanatory, that they require the Churches magisterium or teaching authority to explain what the more substantive passages mean and how they are to be lived out by the faithful."
