Everybodies Favorite Subject

Today I'm going to be talking about anti-christ, who and what it is. This topic is very relevant to jehovah's witnesses, mormons, quixtians(amway,BWW,LTD and all other MLM affiliates that try to take the place of christianity), and all of the prosperity gospel followers. Yay everybodies favourite subject... lol.

So first let's find out what does the word "anti"-Christ mean. Is it a word that means against Christ? Yes and no. Only recently has this word began to mean against, kind of like how anti-semitic means against jews, or some people even think it means hating jews.

Although with today's dictionary this word can be used in this manner, tradionally this word "anti" does not mean against or hating, so it becomes confusing. The word "anti" in the original greek and in almost every instance of the new testamant, was only used in terms of replacement. The most correct use of the word "anti" could be seen in the bold italic word in the next sentence.
-They were expecting Greg, but Billy came instead of Greg.

So basically the simplest way I can put this is that when the anti-christ comes he will be a replacement christ that tries to come instead of the real Christ at the time of the second coming. What does this mean? Is he going to be a man so completely opposite of Christ? Someone like adolph hitler, that everyone is going to know that it's him, that is warring against the Annointed One of God? No not at all, what this is means is that the anti-christ is going to come and fool and deceive everyone who's name is not written in the book of life, into believing that he is the true messiah that has come to save him and they will believe it to a point of zealous worship.

On the outside he will seem to be an exact replica of Jesus Christ, by being loving, kind, authoritative, angry when he has to be,gentle and meek,working miracles, he will have one come before him just like John the Baptist and the bible says he will speak boastfully whatever that means. How will a true Christian be able to quickly notice that this is the beast? What is the dividing line? The determining factor? It is the cross of Jesus Christ and all those things attached to it: his resurection, sin, judgement, wrath of God, Hell, guilt, and need for forgiveness + grace.

You will say how can these things be how will this man come and replace Christ without ever talking about sin or the cross? Just look around today there are probably billions of people worshiping the anti-christ or what I like to call "fueling his coming". For now there are many anti-christs just like it says in 1 John 4 ... many anti-christs will come, but when the fueling is complete he will manifest and there will be only one and he will fit the bill for all of them.

Let's examine some of them:

The jehovah's witnesses claim to be worshiping a saviour messiah but this messiah did not die on the cross to pay for sins and did not endure the wrath of God because there is no hell to them. Thus they believe that Jesus only came to set an example of the works we must do to get to heaven. The Christ that I praise and worship is the one that endured the wrath of God hanging on the cross for my sins so I wouldn't have to. If they are not worshiping this Christ then what christ are they worshipping? It is an anti-christ. You see a Hindu person who is worshiping a false god like vishnu or a greek worshiping zeus is in reality just worshiping a demon and in the long run the devil because they are just idols, false Gods. But when you claim to be worshiping Jesus Christ, the Messiah like figure of the Bible when upon closer examination (crucifixtion, sin) you are not. Then you are worshiping a replacement christ.

The mormons also claim to be worshiping a messiah like figure who's name is Jesus. But this Jesus of theirs was the brother of satan and born of a sexual realtionship between Mary their god which they call Elohim who has also granted all judging privileges to joseph smith. Thier Jesus was married to several wives and had children but apparently he did die on the the cross for their sin. Is this what they believe though? If one were to actually join the mormon church they would quickly find that their salvation is completely works oriented, no grace at all. And since judging privileges were hand over to joseph smith they are likely to obey him and what he wrote in his works rather than God, and how can they resist worshiping this man. The christ that they worship is Jesus Smith or Joseph Christ. They are worshiping an anti-christ.

So the mormons and jw's think we can work our way to heaven. Here is the answer to this: This is assuming that we start with a clean slate and every sin we do gives us a -1 and when we do a good deed it gives us a +1 to get back to 0. But the Bible says that we are conceived in the womb of a sinner and born in sin. And if we just commit 1 sin then the infinite wrath of an infinitely powerful God, the wrath of the God that created all those big huge stars out there in 6 days, abides on us. Why does it abide on us? Its because Before God is a loving God he is a God of Justice and since he's perfect the best analogy I can describe it with is like someone who is a perfectionist and has obsessive compulsive disorder who loves straight lines, when he sees a bump in the line you know what his greatest desire is, its to make it straight again, and since he is super powerful this is a very scary thought. But God is not a maniac who loses control of himself he does it because that is what he wants to do and since God is also a loving God who is the epitome of love we can see that he worked around his perfect Justice by unloading his wrath and crucifying the Lamb before the foundation of the world was set. Praise the LORD!

Ok now I'm going to do my best to thoroughly describe the replacement-christ that has so gripped the christian church that I have given it its own name: "The anti-christ in emotional Christianity."

This heresy is so bad that it needs it own introduction.

-Because of certain things that have happened to Christianity, like christian leaders thinking that cultural relativity and being inoffensive is more important than preaching truth, and a belief that man has the awesome power to convert sinners by his own enthusiasm and motivation, a very dangerous 8-legged venomous belief has crept into the Christian Community. It is the belief that if one has had an emotional experience that they have been saved by Jesus Christ. Q: "What do you mean B-man? Isn't genuine repentance usually accompanied by an emotional experience? Like say: crying, weeping, sorrow. " A: Yes, most genuine repentances are accompanied by sorrow and weeping, but that does not mean that every emotional experience brings about a saving work by Jesus Christ. Lets move on, I will explain.

-Let's say that my family and I go to the movies and we decided to watch a very chick flicky dramatic movie that is a tear jerker. You know those movies that make you cry because they are very sad and depressing, but they also make your do the "happy cry" for some of the scenes that have a uplifting or vindicating theme. It's the crying that you do when you find out extremely good news, like your cancerous tumor is completely healed or your father survived a plane crash. Something like that.

-O.k so lets do some dissecting here by asking some questions. If I am watching the movie and a certain scene that is packed with protagonist vindication happens to makes me cry, does that mean that I have been saved by Jesus Christ? L.o.L of course not. I know its a silly question but check this out. If a particular excited evangelist comes up to me and has a conversation with me, and during this conversation he uses the same techniques the movie does to manipulate my emotions and bring me to tears, and then he proceeds to take me through the 4 spiritual laws technique and he takes me through the hoops and I end up saying the "salvation prayer" does that mean I am saved? Of course not.
Now I know that someone is going to say: "but thats how I got saved." And I believe you it is very possible God to save someone through this method, God can do whatever he wants. Here is what I am trying to say and what is very dangerous, not everybody who goes through this experience is actually truly saved, and I would go as far to say that 9/10 people that this happens to are not saved.

-The big problem here is that they actually do believe that they are saved, because of the false teachings of the preacher afterward and not only that, but because on the outside it actually resembles true salvation so much its very hard to be discerned. If they just had an emotional experience and their emotions fueled by pastoral motivation is what keeps them coming to church and worshiping but they are not actually truly saved, then who are they worshipping? It is an anti-christ.

-By the way, the backsliding and falling away rate of these false christians is very high, but when they are motivated enough and do not fall away then they will become a goat that thinks hes a sheep or "goat with a Bible" which is very dangerous because they will do the most damage to the church as false prophets.

-O.k now, that previous bit of information is applicable to many many Christians, but mainly to those that belong to the dangerous end of Christianity that many fine scholars would call "hyper(extreme) Armenianism" who seem to think that being emotionally excited and doing the same to others is all there is to Christianity.
To name a few: charismatic, hyper-charismatic, prosperity, and many pentecostal offshoots. I am not saying that this applies to everyone in these denomination because I know there are lots of pentecostal churches that do not practice this. Now I am going to go on and elaborate on what I believe is the most dangerous branch of this heresy which is the prosperity gospel.

-O.k so the prosperity gospel not only practices what I mentioned above, but after "converting" their prospect through their emotional experience this gospel will motivate their new convert by building up their self-esteem ego and telling them that God wants them to be super wealthy and prosperous and God wants them to have all of their dreams come true because it is very man centered rather then God-centered. I'm just going to divide this into sections because it so very wicked so I must explain each doctrine seperately. Here are the topics. 1.) Man-centered not God-centered 2.) Man's will be done rather then God's will be done 3.) Positive and negative theology.

1.) Man-centered not God-centered

-In the 16th and 17th Century there was a fierce debate as to whether the Sun revolved around the Earth or the Earth revolved around the Sun, eventually with the help of science men were able to discover 100% beyond a shadow of a doubt that the earth revolves around the Sun and that the Sun was the center of the Solar system, but isn't funny that men are still trying to convince people that The Son revolves around man and that man is the center of the universe. No my friends the earth and every man in it revolves around the Son of God not the other way around. The earth and man keep revolving,moving and changing but The SON never changes and is the center of everything AND does not revolve around man. Just as the Sun gives light to the world and is needed for the existence of life on earth, the same is true with The SON, He provides light and life to the world and not the other way around.

-I have searched far and wide but I have yet to find a God-centered teaching in the prosperity gospel, every teaching has the emphasis that man is the center, "the end all be all" of the universe.

For example :
-God created the entire universe just for man, all for man's pleasure all because of man.
-God created man just so man could have a pleasurable relationship with God and so man could have a pleasurable life in the garden of Eden, If only Adam didn't blow it.
-Every time God makes a move in the universe or does something out of his own free will towards a man, it's always gotta be because of something the man has done(whether good or bad) because God has to submit to certain "laws of judgement" in the universe because God can't do whatever he wishes to man, because thats not "fair".
-God is just some weak puppet who does everything that a man with enough faith demands be done, God is constantly being stone-cold stunnered by the devil, and needs man to help him win this war that has been going on for centuries.

-These and many other silly things are done, they will gather practically every orthodox Christian doctrine they will take the fact that it is God centered and make it all about man even up to and including the cross of Jesus Christ. It's no surprise either too because that's just what the devil does he takes things that are about God and tries to make it about him because of his pride. Since we are all born in sin and with him as our spiritual father it really is no surprise that we will duplicate him in this aspect.

-And here is my response: No, the earth was created by God for God to do whatever he wanted to do with his creation which just happened to be have a relationship with man. God is sovereign and does whatever He wants, the earth is the Lord's and everything in it, He does whatever pleases. If God wants to kill someone then he can do it without asking any questions. God created man to give glory to God not the other way around.

2.)Man's will be done rather then God's will be done

-All you ever hear the people in these prosperity sects talking about is what they want and how God is helping them to get it. God's will is not prevalent in their lives because they have not truly been saved so theres no way for them to know it.
Just to give you a clue in case you are wondering, God's will usually revolves around repenting of your sins, getting truly saved and helping others do the same.

-Preachers like Joel Osteen and Kenneth Copeland will frequently talk about how its God's will for man to be wealthy, healthy, successful, prosperous or "blessed" as they call it. Although it is true that God may want to sprinkle one of those things on one person here and there, prosperity preachers would have us believe that there is some law that God has to submit to out there and that God has to treat everybody the same way and that God wants this for everybody all the time.So to hold to this theology, they must make a God in their image who is loving and good to them all the time ,wanting to increase their wealth and success all the time and is not a Holy God or a God of Justice, but one who blesses and blesses and blesses materially.

-The main conviction of all true prosperity believers is that all good things come from God and all bad things come from the devil, and the believer defines what good and bad is according to his will. So if it's the believers will to be millionaire rap star then, anythings that comes up against him, whether it be, spoken read or in some sort of media is "of the devil" . Why is it of the devil? Because its trying to stop them from achieving their will duh, and that's whats important in a sinner's life, getting their own thing done. I will be speaking more about this in #3 positive negative theology.

3) People in all the Quixway systems(BWW, Leadership team development, network21 etc..) and in prosperity doctrine religions(kenneth copelant,benny hinnm joel osteen etc..) they all HOLD STRONG to what they like to call positive vs.negative mentality. Here's how it works.

-Lets say my name is Steve, and I want to build a nation wide-empire using the LTD business system as my vehicle, anything or anyone that supports me and my goal, furthers my ability to achieve my goal or makes me happy, excited or motivated is "positive" and it comes from God because God is the ultimate extreme of this positive force. God is the epitome of positive. He the force thats out there to give you what you want all the time. Jesus is just a name that I say or call to get this "god" to give me what I want all the time.

-So here's an example: Billy comes up to me and says: "Hey Steve, I heard about what you did yesterday that was so awesome and courageous, your an inspiration to the entire team, keep that up and you'll be a millionaire, young wealthy and free in no-time.
To which I Steve would respond: "wow Bill thats so positive, thank you so much for the encouragement."

-Now the "negative" is anything that comes against me and my dreams and goals of building my empire, anythings that tries to take away from my self esteem, my ego, my pride, my motivation, anything that tries to "steal my dream" .

-For instance: my old friend Spurgeon comes up to me and says: "Hey Steve, you seem to have become entranced by that business system, you have allowed it to become an idol in your life, what does it profit it a man if he gain the whole world but lose his own soul?"

-To which I Steve would respond: Hey loser, I never realized how much of a negative loser you were until today, why are you trying to steal my dream, you are so negative, get behind me satan! in the name of Jesus!"
and I would procede to cut Spurgeon out of my life, because not only do I not like this "negative" but I can't handle it either because it the worst kind of "negative" because it sounds like truth! OH NO! if I keep listening to this my golden calf will collapse!

-By the way the devil is the exact opposite of God in the prosperity doctrine equation, hes the epitome of negative he exists to make your life stink and to try and stop you from getting what you want all the time.

-All this sounds silly right? guess what millions of people believe this more zeaolously then any bible believing Christian I've ever seen, its because they have duplicated the biblical model of a church from acts so they have comradeship for their own evil purposes which is able to drive them forward. These organizations claim to be giving all the honor and glory to "jesus christ" which christ that is, we must inspect, for they are zealously worshiping a replacement christ, an anti-christ.

Leadership Team Development(LTDTEAM) & Britt World Wide(BWW) Perceptions And Thoughts

Introduction- A Christian's Perspective of Amway and Greed for non-christians and christians alike

Welcome, in this website I'll be discussing perceptions about Leadership Team Development which is a break away off of Britt World Wide system which is Quixtar also called Amway. Although many websites devote their time trying to convince people that this business is a scam and an illegal pyramid, people often beat around the bush attacking and defending whether or not Amway is an illegal pyramid or scam when thats not even the issue, of course its not an illegal pyramid and whether or not it is a scam must be left to each individuals perspective, but the main problems I will go through now...

My main concern is with the cultic spiritual deception that occurs rampantly in this business.

The cultic tactics that they use to grow their business is just like the Jehovah's witness and Mormonism, they have an overt "christian" emphasis and they use the church model in the book of Acts of the Bible for the growth of their business.
Just like a true Christian church will evangelize by sharing the gospel, Quixtians will evangelize using what they call "sharing the dream" where they ask people what their dreams are and then ask them if they want to make more money to achieve those dreams.(which by the way is fine, but their motive and the end result of what they are doing is wrong) Then, just like the evangelist invites people to the church to hear the gospel preached by the pastor, the quixtian will invite the new prospect to the "business meeting" where the enthusiatic charismatic speaker pulls your heart strings by talking for 40 minutes about your dreams and why you deserve and can have more, then for the next 20 minutes he "draws the circles" and shows how to make money in the business, this whole process is the equivalent of the pastor the in church preaching the gospel and they call it "STP" which is"showing the plan".

After attending church if the person sees that they haven't kept the 10 commandments and that they need Christ as their saviour because of their sin then there is usually discipleship afterwards, where some mature church members will help the person get started with the Bible and what not, with amway it is the same. After hearing the rants of the charismatic speaker, if the prospect's heart strings are pulled and he becomes lustful for money, then those who are interested will usually get together for a "follow-up" with their "mentor" (they call this the mentoring process) where they will be shown a plan for the next 90 days and given some motivational and quite often some cultic books.( some described below) Just like Christians are told to depart from their life of sin( pornagraphy, narcotics, stealing, lying etc) and leave the service of the devil to work for God, the new prospect is told very quick into the business that he has spent his whole life serving "negative" and that he needs to cut off all "negative"(which is of course defined by them) from their life and start to think positive, only allow positive into their life and to start to serve the "positive force" which they sorta make into a god of theirs. Of course positive is anything that encourages supports or agrees with what they are doing to help them build their business, and "negative" is anything that tries to hinder them or discourage them.
So if the parents of the prospects discourage them from doing the business the "mentor" will suggest cutting them off for a while because they are "negative"(do you see the culticness here?)

Because of the fact that this business has an overt christian emphasis and most people in this business call themselves "christians"(even though all they care about is money and have life centred on greed and lust)
they will often apply the label "devil" to whatever is negative and harming to their goals and dreams(building business) and then consequently they will apply the label of "god" to whatever is positive. By the way this idea comes from free masonry with the help of Napolean hill who was himself a famous free mason . (described below)

When a church begins to grow the church then decides to expand its boarders using missionaries, to go to the nearby cities and even cities abroad in different countries to do what they call "planting a church", in the same manner those who drive hours and hours to different cities, or even devote their lives abroad to preaching the Amway gospel(lustful prosperity), are called "warriors" who are "planting open meetings."

And of course they have an "us vs. them" mentality you will often here people in this business refer to themselves as "winners" and anyone who is not in the business or rejects their offer to do them business as "losers" they do this so much that they take the "losers" to the point of enemy status. This is the "us vs. them" mentality that is present in every cult and is very often displayed. Without an enemy that is being criminalized, mocked,slandered, hated, and beat-low then a cult can't exist.

AND OF COURSE MY BIGGEST CONCERN is that, just like the mormons and J.W's they do this all in the name of Jesus Christ, which is a false jesus. Its the jesus of the prosperity gospel which is a heresy
(more on this topic here
) and because of organizations like this that are in reality only interested in money and filling their own bellies and puffing themselves up, then the name of Christ is disgraced and trodden down and blasphemed among men.

This section is made especially for Christians or at least those who "profess" to be. There is such a thing as false converts people who claim that Christ is their Lord but in reality are slaves to sin, read all of matthew 7:21-23.

For those of you in the LTD system that call yourselves Christian I challenge you to read this and tell me if I have lied, and if you do call yourself a Christian then you should have enough guts to read this, or are you going to get scared away by the "negative"? A wuss is someone who can't handle a rebuke, winners definetly can.

It is a blatant fact that this system of business is an incubator for the sin of idolatry and greed/covetousness(which they call dreaming to confuse people and make it sound nicer, because dreams are not bad, but the ones they encourage are all greed centred and breaking the 10th commandment) the longer you are in it the more of your heart gets stolen and latched onto by this false God called the LTD system. And I would say that at least 99% of people who are in the LTD business are committing the sin of idolatry with their false God being the LTD system itself and the idol they have made of their own goals and dreams. Idolatry by the way is the worst sin in the bible. Loving something else more then Jesus Christ, every IBO loves the LTD system and their own "dreams and goals"(which is lust and covetousness, the more you pursue the bigger idol it becomes) more then they love Jesus Christ and would not be willing to give it up even if Jesus came down face to face and asked them to do it. They would say that it is not Jesus, its gotta be the devil because Jesus would never ask me to leave something for his sake. People who haven't read the Bible or at least, the new testament say these silly things. Why would Jesus not want you to leave an organization that is deceiving people and teaching New-age psychological crap, along with Free Masonry (napolean hills works, norman vincent peale's power of positive thinking, and Og mandinos works) all these men were extremely famous free mason's who knowingly worship the devil himself, and many other lies that come from the prosperity gospel and the word of faith movement.

Heres more:

The first commandment is: HEAR! O ISRAEL! I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD, you shall have no other Gods before me!

Some may say their God is Jesus But they are Liars for they are in fact serving the LTD system and their own bellies(greed). The LTD system is what they love and trust the most. The LTD system controls every decision and action that the IBO makes in their day not because the IBO is being mind controlled but because this is what the person actually desires to do. This is how they have been trained.

When I go to a church I hear: Praise the Lord! We were on the verge of divorce but my marriage is better because of Jesus Christ. I had a ________ (insert whatever) addiction and Jesus helped deliver me from it. Thank you Jesus. I was depressed and down low but Jesus came into my life and made me full of joy. Praise the LORD.

NOW........ heres what you hear at an LTD business meeting:

Isn't the LTD system awesome?!(Praise LTD) We were on the verge of divorce but my marriage is better because of LTD.
I had a ________ (insert whatever) addiction and LTD helped deliver me from it. Thank you LTD.
I was depressed and down low but LTD came into my life and made me full of joy. We love the LTD system!! (Praise LTD.)

Those of you who attend meeting regularly know what I'm talking about, Doesn't this scare you? LTD is taking the praise of Jesus Christ

By the way if you are reading this and you are feeling your conscience bothering you you should praise the Lord, that is not the devil that is the Holy Spirit pricking you warning you to repent and regret all the sins that you've committed against God. What sins you say? Have you ever lied? stolen? blasphemed? adultered? fornicated?
Before God is a loving God(and he is a very loving God) he is a God of JUSTICE. Study this word people. This is why there is a hell. If there was a County Judge out there who allowed murderers and rapers to go free without sending them to jail you would call him a "bad Judge" and "corrupt judge". God is not a bad or corrupt judge, this is why hes going to send people like adolph hitler to hell, but God is so good and so perfect and Just that he will punish every single sin including lies and blasphemies even if you've only committed one. You better hope that those sins were punished for you on the cross of Jesus Christ or you'll be paying the price for them yourself in hell. This is why you need to repent and trust in Jesus Christ and his finished work on the cross for your salvation and not in your own works. Here are scriptures to consider.

For all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23. Notice how it says all, that means you too.

If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives.
1 John 1:8-10. Just to affirm you guys.

and: For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9.
Nothing we can do can save us, because we are sinners and it says when we try to work our way to salvation, that our works are like filthy rags in the sight of God(Isaiah 64:6)
We need to trust in the finished work of Christ for our salvation and nothing else, not LTD, not BWW, not our job promotions,not our climbing of the corporate ladder or any other institution, not the pastor,not the church people and not our own works.

You may ask why I am doing this. I am not doing this because I hate the LTD business system of BWW or Amway, its just a stupid business that thinks it can take the place of Christianity. I am doing this because I care for your soul. If I saw you asleep in a burning building and didn't wake you up then I would be a monster.

Grace and Peace to you
with all the love I can muster

P.S Here is a very helpful resource if you would like to do some more reading. This is a very short(20 min read) and scholarly book written by a christian about MLM and the church.

If some are reading this and are worried that I am just some loser blogger out there, I would accept the persecution gladly for the sake of my Lord Jesus Christ and his will, just like you are willing to accept enormous amounts of persecution for the LTD system and your dreams(idols) which in end is just doing your will rather then God's, but please if you want to see my face, I know that you IBO'S are movers and shakers why dont you come and have a cup of coffee with me, or invite me to your open meeting to speak as a guest, I am not afraid of you. Leave some comments if you want to do any of these things, and those who are upset try not to use dirty language please.

Some Differences between the Roman Catholic Church and Christianity

Difference between Roman Catholic and Christianity.

At this present day there are about 1 billion roman catholics in the world as of 2008.

Now I am not writing this to attack or hate on Roman Catholics because as a christian it is my job to love everyone but especially lovingly share the truth, especially since I was a Roman Catholic for 17 years, so I cannot rag on them the slightest. For those who are solid Bible believing christians and you know the truth and are trying to share it with a R.C please do it lovingly, for they are just like us and everybody else, we are all born sinners and are brought up into some sort of false religious system which leads to bondage, unless you are raised in a solid christian home that is. We must help free them from that bondage, not by dispute but by learning the truth and sharing it with the love of Christ.

Here I go down the list of the major problems with the Roman Catholic Church and I header them with titles of the sin they fall into. Rebukes are not always easy because you are pointing out what someone or a group of people is doing wrong, but they must be pointed out for the love of truth and Christ, and if they are harsh it is for a reason.


1.Worshipping of Mary

-FACT: Roman Catholics believe that Mary is the mother of God, instead of just the mother of Jesus thereby making here into a deity.
*** the Bible says that Mary is only the mother of Jesus' Body, For Jesus existed as God(the Word) before the earth began John 1.1, and God does not need a mother for he is Sovereignly eternal and the alpha and omega. Rev 22:13

- They believe that Mary was sinless and did not die but ascended into heaven, and now we can pray to her and she will forgive our sins, and shes prays to God for us to help us get to heaven.
***Whereas the Bible says in 1 Timothy 2:5 : For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, and in John 14:6 : "Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me."

-For Mary to had remained sinless catholics believe that Mary had to remain a virgin so they must believe Jesus did not break Mary's virginity while being born, so they claim that Jesus was cut out of his mothers womb, and some go as far to say that she vomitted him out, which is (not surprisingly) a very popular form of pagan deity birth.

*** Matthew 12:46-50 says that Jesus had his mother and brothers outside waiting for him, if Jesus had brothers then that means that Mary had sexual relations with Joseph after Jesus was born, this is why they call James(who wrote the epistle) the Lord's Half-Brother.
We can also see scriptures to support this in Matt 1:25.

-The statue of Mary that every roman catholic has in their home is a re-emerging version of the ancient pagan virgin godesses artemis, athena and the most cunning resemblance is to that of astarte(ishtar) the statues are almost split images.

***Where as the bible says in Exodus 20:1-6
I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
“You shall have no other gods before Me.........

-"There is such ignorance of the Biblical role and understanding of Mary, that for anybody who has come to Christ from a Catholic background, once the scales fall off (2 Cor. 3:14-16) and the ex-Catholic now becomes a Christian (2 Cor. 5:17), such teachings as this cause the child of God great pain and a righteous anger, for Jesus is the One to whom all the love, prayers and worship should be given to, not Mary!"

2. Worshipping of saints

-FACT: The roman catholic church has at the moment just over 10,000 canonized saints. depending on a saints popularity in a particular region, they may or may not have a specific holiday in honor of their name.

-Roman catholics have a doctrine of "attaching" themselves to a particular saint for help with that saints particular area of expertise. For example: There is a saint called "Saint Luzia of the open eyes", so people who are blind or with bad eye sight will "attach" themselves to this saint and pray to them constantly until they get better better eyes. There is a saint for practically every help area that a person could need eg. deafness, mute, finances, fertility, pain, marriage problems and the list goes on. I can ask my grandma which saint I should pray to for my "________" problem and she will tell me right away which one specializes in that area.

*** the bible says that when we pray we should only pray to God the Father, In Jesus Name. John 16:26 and says: But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Phillipians 4:13 God supplies needs, not dead saints.

3. Worshipping the Pope

-FACT: Roman Catholics Worship the Pope, as their Doctrine states that he is the Vicar of Christ, the one who makes all the decisons for Jesus here on earth. As a man with this much power how can the Roman Catholics resist worshipping this man. There is something called the infallibility of the pope, which states that the pope can never ever be wrong! This is wrong, the pope is just a man and a sinful man just like everyone else.

*** Once you take the focus off Christ and put it on something or someone else it is Idolatry and if it gets serious enough it can become a replacment Christ (anti-Christ).The bible says in 1 John 4:1-3 that many false prophets and anti-Christs will come.

4. Worshipping carved images and statues(idols)

-FACT: Catholics regularly bow down to idols, icons and images of Jesus, Mary and the apostles, kissing the feet of the statues and praying to them. They will kiss their rosary before going to sleep and kiss the carved image of Jesus on their necklace all the time.
*** the Bible reads: Cursed be the man that makes any graven or molten image, an abomination to the LORD, it is the work of the hands of the craftsman, and puts it in a secret place. And all the people shall answer and say, Amen. Deuteronomy 27:15


Now I will take you through the Pillar of Roman Catholic Works based salvation Doctrine "The 7 Sacraments" and why the way they teach is either False or almost completly False.

1. Baptism-

Roman Catholics teach that a baby should be baptized as soon as possible after birth by sprinkling some water on its head, and if there is a new convert to R.C they just need to have some water sprinkled on them.
-In R.C the widespread belief is that after you are baptized as a baby your are safely secure in the bosom of God and no matter what sins you do they will be purged away in purgatory.
Although baptism is a correct doctrine the way the roman catholics teach it is completly false.

*** Baptising babies is wrong because baptism is a public display of your inward faith in Christ(babies can't have faith in Christ) by being immersed(buried) in water. Your old self dies and stays under the water while your new self comes up out of the water. Getting baptized doesn't save but it's silly to not get baptized if you are a christian. Acts 8:36-27 Mark 16:15-16

2. Holy Communion/Eucharist

-The Roman Catholic church teaches that around the age of 9 one must take part of his first holy communion which one cannot take part of until that age.
-The R.C's teach that the wafer of bread and cup of wine become actual body and blood of Jesus at the priest's command and this is also part of their works based salvation. This is a sin and it is idolatry because of unkowledgable misenterpretations of scriptures.
*** Although there is a Lord's supper and there is a piece of bread and cup of wine to consume the idea that it becomes the body and blood of Jesus is a misreading of John's gospel. The Lord's supper is a completly symbolic meal that we do in remembrance of what Jesus did on the Cross for us. When we take the bread we remember his body which was broken and ravaged for the healing of our spirits and our salvation, and when we drink the wine we remember the blood that was spilled to wash away our sins. Read Luke 22:14-20


-After one takes his first Eucharist he is required to regularly tell the priest some of the sins hes commited so that the priest will plead his case before God.
****This is old Covenant mentality! We don't need another mediatior all we need is Jesus, and we can and only should confess our sins directly to him to ask for forgiveness and repent!
God loves us so much that he bled for us and died and rose again just so there could be a mediator and we could have the chance to actually talk to God, and we are being very ungrateful if we ignore this and try to talk to him using other methods.
Read 1 John 1:9 1and 1 Tim 2:5 again.

-After you tell your sins to the priest he tells you to say 10 Hail Maries and 3 Our Fathers, the amount varies depending on the gravity of your sin.
***This is works based salvation, Only the blood of Jesus can wash away our sins and not some silly repetition of prayers. Read Ephesians 2:8-9 to see how we are saved.

4. Confirmation/Recieiveing the Holy Spirit

-At around the age of 14 the Church goer must receive his "Confirmation" where the R.C believer recieves the Holy spirit for the first time thus once more securing his salvation through a series of mandate rituals.
*** The Bible says that to be saved ye must be born again (John3:3) by repenting. When you repent God recreates your spirit and you are "Born again" and at that moment you have the Holy Spirit helping you along the way.

5. Marriage and 6. Holy Orders

-The Roman Catholic Church states with authority that if you get married you can have no part in teaching or preaching the gospel or any work for the Lord. Also if you want to be a priest(a.k.a pastor) or any other leadership position you must be celibate.
*** This is completly against new testament teaching, the bible says that bishops must be husbands of one wife in 1 Timothy 3:2. Read and Consider I Timothy 4:1-3.

7.Last Rites/Extreme Unction/Anointing of the Sick

-Once again yet another thing that must be done to a human being in order for him to be saved. If one is sick and on his deathbed he must be anointed by the preist to secure his salvation. Yet if someone were to get hit by a car and die instantly he doesn't need the Extreme Unction.
*** Hmm, every single sacrament is neccessary for salvation if you happen to be alive until the appropriate time of receivng it. Yet if you happen to die before the time it's ok you don't need them.


-These are just some short random facts about the Roman catholic church that don't fall into the other categories but are dangerous nonetheless.

1.Purgatory or limbo

- The roman catholic church teaches that if you die in sins its still ok because you will go to "purgatory" a place where you spirit goes to be purged of sins before it can enter heaven.
Thus nullifying the cross of Jesus Christ once again.

2. The Roman Catholics were largely responsible for The Crusades, and completely responsible for the Inquisitions in which they search for people who believed a different Christianity then theirs and they would burn them at the stake for "heresy".

3. Roman Catholism is commonly caught selling indulgences to remove sin of loved ones that have passed away and help them get to heaven. Another form of works salvation.



FACT: Catholics are taught that only the priests can understand the Bible and the common man in the pew cannot understand the Bible without the priests help.
-Even at mass there is no Bibles, they use something called the "Sunday Missal" where they read along with what the priest is saying and find their hymns and songs. Catholics don't believe that the bible is 100% accurate they believe what the priests tell them over the bible. I would say that 95% of Roman Catholics have never read the bible because according to their cathechism it's not even neccessary and according to the priests its harmful to the developing of faith.

FACT: The Pope teaches that he can change what is in the Bible if he wants.

And here we come to a conclusion, The reason why the Roman catholic church is so apostate is because they do not read the Bible or believe it. When the first person to come out of the R.C church, Martin Luther, protested against their evils the first thing he posted after he posted Solos Cristos was Solos Scritura, which means "Solely Scripture" or "Only Scripture". Martin Luther had a good answer to the problem, maybe we should listen to him.
