Understanding the Roman Catholic Church

Understanding the Roman Catholic Church

May 17, 2019

If you watched History of Religion Part 62: Understanding the Roman Catholic Church, I spoke at lengths about the Catholic Church and their doctrine. They do not keep their beliefs secret but have placed it in a book called The Catechism of the Catholic Church which is book that provides their complete Statements of Faith.  We do not need to place our opinions about the Roman Catholic Church.  All we must do is review their doctrine and align it to the Scriptures.  So part 62 of the History of Religion series does just that.  Here are some of the Catechisms that are discussed in the video (and some more) along with Scriptural Responses.  Please review this and share this with your Catholic friends and family and ask them to place the Bible over man.  I hope this saves souls! Be blessed!

 

Tradition Is Equal With Scripture

The Catholic Church places the Bible at an equal level as their Tradition.

Catechism 80 on page 31 reads:Sacred Tradition and Sacred Scripture, then, are bound closely together and communicate one with the other.  For both of them, flowing out from the same divine well-spring, come together in some fashion to form one thing and move towards the same goal.”  Each of them makes present and fruitful in the Church the mystery of Christ, who promised to remain with his own “always, to the close of the age.

Scriptural Response:

Scripture has repeatedly warned us against traditions and philosophies of men.

 

“Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Messiah.” (Colossians 2:8)


Catechism 82 on page 31 reads:As a result the Church, to whom the transmission and interpretation of Revelation is entrusted, “does not derive her certainty about all revealed truths from the Holy Scriptures alone. Both Scripture and Tradition must be accepted and honored with EQUAL sentiments of devotion and reverence.

Scriptural Response:

The truth is that from scripture ALONE must we receive truth and instruction from Elohim.  This must be our foundation.

 

It is better to trust in YHWH than to put confidence in man.(Psalm 118:8)

 

Sanctify them by Your truth: Your word is truth. (John 17:17)


 

Interpretation Of The Bible Is To Be Done Only By The Pope And Bishops

The Catholic Church teaches that only the elite can understand and should read the Scriptures.

Catechism 100 on page 35 reads: The task of interpreting the Word of God authentically has been entrusted SOLELY to the Magisterium of the Church, that is, to the Pope and to the bishops in communion with him.

Scriptural Response:

There is not one scripture that supports this Catechism. Not one single person has the say so and dominance on Bible interpretation.  If you are saved, a child of Elohim, then you have the Holy Spirit residing in you, and He will teach you.  For anyone to say they are to be entrusted SOLELY to interpret the Word of Elohim is purely wicked.

 

“Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.” (1 Timothy 4:13)

 

““knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation,” (2 Peter 1:20)


 

Mary is: Sinless, a Perpetual Virgin, the Mother of God, the Queen of Heaven, the Co-Redeemer with Christ

This is where we see the Mystery Babylon religion come in.  Where the Whore of Babylon seeps in to this religious dogma.

Catechism 491 on page 138 reads: Through the centuries the Church has become ever more aware that Mary, “full of grace” through God, was redeemed from the moment of her conception. That is what the dogma of the Immaculate Conception confesses, as Pope Pius IX proclaimed in 1854.

The most Blessed Virgin Mary was, from the first moment of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege of almighty God and by virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race, preserved IMMUNE from all stain of original sin.

Scriptural Response:

None are without sin.

 

“As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one; There is none who understands; There is none who seeks after Elohim. They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one.”” (Romans 3:10-12)

 

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of Elohim,” (Romans 3:23)


Catechism 966 on page 274 reads: “Finally the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things, so that she might be the more fully conformed to her Son, the Lord of lords and conqueror of sin and death.” The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin is a singular participation in her Son’s Resurrection and an anticipation of the resurrection of other Christians.

In giving birth you kept your virginity; in your Dormition you did not leave the world, O Mother of God, but were joined to the source of Life.  You conceived the living God and, by your prayers, will deliver our souls from death

Scriptural Response:

Mary did not remain a virgin. Mary had more kids after Yahshua.

 

“Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas? And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?”” (Matthew 13:55 & 56)

 

To Catholics, Mary is the Queen of Heaven. This title goes back to the pagan Mother Goddess. You can find this title and role in the Bible as well, but it was always negative. This is paganism. The Queen of Heaven is the Whore of Babylon.

 

“The children gather wood, the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and they pour out drink offerings to other gods, that they may provoke Me to anger. Do they provoke Me to anger?” says YHWH. “ Do they not provoke themselves, to the shame of their own faces?”” (Jeremiah 7:18)


 

Salvation Includes The Muslims

Catechism 841 on page 242 & 243 reads: “The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creatorin the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind’s judge on the last day.”

Scriptural Response:

They are teaching that you don’t need to come through the Son. You can come to the Father through just believing in Him. And that is biblically heretical. It is blaspheme. Muslims deny the deity of the Messiah. They don’t believe Him to be the Son of Elohim, only a prophet. Not the Messiah. You can only make it to the Father through Yahshua.

 

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”  (John 14:6)


 

The Doctrine Of The Supremacy Of The Pope

Catechism 882 on page 254 reads: The Pope, Bishop of Rome and Peter’s successor, “is the perpetual and visible source and foundation of the unity both of the bishops and of the whole company of the faithful.” “For the Roman Pontiff, by reason of his office as Vicar of Christ, and as pastor of the entire Church has FULL, SUPREME and UNIVERSAL POWER over the whole Church, a power which he can ALWAYS exercise UNHINDERED.”

Scriptural Response:

The Pope, just like all men, are wicked sinners, yet, they claim him to be the Vicar of Christ.  “Vicar is a person who acts in place of another; substitute”.  So he believes he is a substitute for the Messiah on earth. That claim is blasphemous.  Through these claims he believes he is sinless and has complete power over the whole church.

 

“And He (Yahshua) is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.” (Colossians 1:18)


 

Infants Are Born Again Through Baptism

Catechism 1250  on page 350 reads: Born with a fallen human nature and tainted by original sin, children also have need of the new birth in Baptism to be freed from the power of darkness and brought into the realm of the freedom of the children of God, to which all men are called.  The sheer gratuitousness of the grace of salvation is particularly manifest in infant Baptism.  The Church and the parents would deny a child the priceless grace of becoming a child of God were they not to confer Baptism shortly after birth.

Scriptural Response:

There are so many people that do not have the Holy Spirit because the church has falsely baptized them as an infant. You will see no scripture about infants being baptized.  Not one Scripture!  The problem is that a baby cannot believe! They are not making the decision to follow the Messiah on their own, someone else made this decision for them. This does not count.  This is a personal relationship. No one can force it on you.  The child must believe in order to be saved, so if you were baptized as an infant or a child and did not make this decision on your own, you must be rebaptized and make the decision to follow Yahshua on your own.  Parents do not baptize your child unless they have made the decision themselves.

 

No Scriptures because it isn’t spoke of once!


 

All Sins Must Be Confessed To A Priest

Catechism 1493 on page 416 reads:  One who desires to obtain reconciliation with God and with the Church, must confess to a priest all the unconfessed grave sins he remembers after having carefully examined his conscience. The confession of venial faults, without being necessary in itself, is nevertheless strongly recommended by the Church.

Scriptural Response:

I mean this is complete unscriptural.  There is not one scripture that tells us to do this. This and infant baptism are just plain examples of how Sacred traditions can be regarded above scripture. No priest can forgive you of your sins.   He did not die on the cross for you.  The priest himself, is nothing more than a sinner.  To call him Father and to confess your sins to him is not taught anywhere in Scripture.  If you sin against a brother, then you confess to Yahshua and ask for forgiveness.  This is how we are reconciled.  You do not need an intermediary to come to Yahshua.  The Holy Spirit is our intercessor.

 

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1stJohn 1:9)

 

“For there is one Elohim and one Mediator between Elohim and men, the Man Messiah Yahshua,” (1stTimothy 2:5)

 

Even calling the Priests Father is against scripture.

“Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven.” (Matthew 23:9)


 

The Church Can Forgive Sins

Catechism 982 on page 278 reads:   There is no offense, however serious, that the Church cannot forgive. “There is no one, however wicked and guilty, who may not confidently hope for forgiveness, provided his repentance is honest.   Christ who died for all men desires that in his Church the gates of forgiveness should always be open to anyone who turns away from sin.  

Scriptural Response:

The church did not die for us. Yahshua died for us. The church does not have the power to forgive sins. There is only one who is able to forgive sins, Yahshua the Messiah.  This is a perversion of the gospel.

 

“Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Yahshua the Messiah for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 2:38)

 

“To Him all the prophets witness that, through His name, whoever believes in Him will receive remission of sins.”” (Acts 10:43)


 

All Grace Comes Through The Catholic Church

Catechism 819 on page 235 & 236 reads:  “Furthermore, many elements of sanctification and of truth” are found outside the visible confines of the Catholic Church: “the written Word of God; the life of grace; faith, hope, and charity, with the other interior gifts of the Holy Spirit, as well as visible elements”  Christ’s Spirit uses these Churches and ecclesial communities AS MEANS OF SALVATION, whose power derives from the fullness of grace and truth that Christ has entrusted to the Catholic Church. All these blessings come from Christ and lead to him, and are in themselves calls to “Catholic unity.”  All these blessings come from Christ and lead to him, and are in themselves calls to “Catholic unity.”

Scriptural Response:

They are saying that salvation comes through the “Catholic Church”.  They are teaching that if one is not a part of the Catholic Church there is no blessing for them, because the Messiah only works through the Catholic Church.  This is non scriptural!

 

“John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’ ” And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” (John 1:15-17)


 

Salvation Only Comes Through The Catholic Church 

The Second Vatican Council’s Decree on Ecumenism explains: “For it is through Christ’s Catholic Church ALONE, which is the universal help toward salvation, that the fullness of the means of salvation can be obtained. It was to the apostolic college alone, of which Peter is the head, that we believe that our Lord entrusted all the blessings of the New Covenant, in order to establish on earth the one Body of Christ into which all those should be fully incorporated who belong in any way to the People of God.”

Catechism  846 on page 244 reads:   How are we to understand this affirmation, often repeated by the Church Fathers?  Re-formulated positively, it means that all salvation comes from Christ the Head through the Church which is his Body:

Basing itself on Scripture and Tradition, the Council teaches that the Church, a pilgrim now on earth, is necessary for salvation: the one Christ is the mediator and the way of salvation; he is present to us in his body which is the Church.  He himself explicitly asserted the necessity of faith and Baptism, and thereby affirmed at the same time the necessity of the Church which men enter through Baptism as through a door. Hence they could not be saved who, knowing that the Catholic Church was founded as necessary by God through Christ, would refuse either to enter it or to remain in it.

Scriptural Response:

The Church is “the set-apart assembly.”  It is clear through many of the catechisms of the Catholic Church they are not teaching salvation in the body of Christ but through the the Catholic Church.  They clearly state that they are basing this on Scripture and Tradition.  This is again not scriptural and goes directly against John 1:15-17 that was just mentioned above. 


 

Doctrines of the Rosary And Prayers To Mary

Catechism 971  on page 275 reads:       “All generations will call me blessed”:  “The Church’s devotion to the Blessed Virgin IS INTRINSIC to Christian WORSHIP.” The Church rightly honors “the Blessed Virgin with special devotion.  From the most ancient times the Blessed Virgin has been honored with the title of ‘Mother of God,’ to whose protection the faithful fly in all their dangers and needs. . .  This very special devotion . . . differs essentially from adoration which is given to the incarnate Word and equally to the Father and the Holy Spirit, and greatly fosters this adoration.” The liturgical feasts dedicated to the Mother of God and Marian prayer, such as the rosary, an “epitome of the whole Gospel,” express this devotion to the Virgin Mary.

Scriptural Response:

When you bow yourself to a statue or erect a statue of Mary, and pray to her, it is WORSHIP.  All through the Old Testament you can see how YHWH hated this practice.  He is a jealous God, and will not share His glory with anyone, because He alone is worthy to accept praise and honor and worship.  This teaching is clearly unscriptural.

 

““You are worthy, O YHWH, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.”” (Revelation 4:11)

 

“He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.” (Matthew 10:37)

 

““You shall have no other gods before Me. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For YHWH your Elohim, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,”(Exodus 20:3-5)


 

Based upon these teachings its clear to see the wickedness in the doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church. If you have been exposed and deceived by this deception, do not be dismayed, because the Father has provided you Grace and has given you time for repentance.  Seek Him and Repent.  Pray for more discernment and diligently feed on His Word.  The time is now! Be blessed!

    Thank you for this article exposing the evil of the RCC. I’ve been married to a catholic woman for 48 yrs. The fact that she was catholic didn’t matter to me since I wasn’t a Christian and had no background in religion.
    After being saved by the blood of Yeshua in 2007, the Holy Spirit opened my eyes to the wickedness that my wife participates in weekly.
    Try as I might, and daily prayer still hasn’t helped to remove the scales from her eyes!
    BTW, your exposure of the truth could have included things such as transubstantiation, the mass, purgatory, etc. The list of heresy in that church (and many of the protestant churches as well) goes on and on!

    Man this makes my blood boil how people cannot see the truth and these white fools leading people away from the TRUTH. They have corrupted everything with their filthy hands. I’m not racist or anything’s it’s just when u see how deep the lies go my first reactions now are anger. These past month I have been learning about the Truth. I always disliked the whole idea of catholic religion since I was a young child. I hate dolls and to actually see those statutes (graven images) just make me want to burn it down. Honestly blind leading the blind and many won’t want to hear the truth cause it requires change will for me I rather the truth even when it hurts. Thanks for ur video u have help me big on this new journey I have seen all ur videos most twice or more. Thank you for ur dedication in helping to teach others I pray the MOST HIGH will keep u going and to be a light for those who are looking for the truth cause edited truth is a lie. I serve no religion I serve only the MOST HIGH, The I AM THAT I Am. YAH is able this is the end of times cause knowledge is truly increasing. They can’t fool me no more. I’m coming out from the whole system. I just got so much in my heart I need to let out some.

    It was an excellent video. God’s and His Word Truth is the only standard. Tradition of man is not equal to the Word of God. Unfortunately the Roman church is making a case for man making him self “like God.” Evil, blaspheme.

  4. Thank you so very much for your sharing of the truth!!! I became awake early this year and man was I hurt and angry that I my parents, grandparent and ancestors have been duped with the vile of lies , deceit, and codes of injustice especially to black people. Thank you may our Creator most high Congo bless you and yours!!! Much Love and Peace!!!

    Notable pagan influence within the Catholic cult:

    Worshipers of Baal would hold their ceremonies in massive temples, lavishly decorated with graven images, gold and stone embellishments and much unnecessary extravagant decorations. Catholicism, being a Babylonian religion, pays homage to this with its massive Cathedrals (which, funnily, are modelled after pagan architecture).

    The Pope wears the “mitre” hat, the same fish-head hat worn by the High-Priest of Dagon. Look at the two side-by-side. Same clothing.

    The priests of Baal wore “vestments”, as Biblically described. I believe the Catholics have “vestments” as well.

    Worshipers of Baal would occasionally whip or wound themselves to honor their deity. Many Catholic sects like Opus Dei have been known to have devotees flog themselves with flagrams and whips. There are also plenty of videos online of devoted Catholic worshipers whipping themselves for their sins, although Christ payed the sacrifice for us when he died on the cross.

    Worshipers of Baal would rape children and engage in twisted and perverted sexual acts with women, children and animals (such as goats, horses, pigs and dogs). Today we hear many stories of these “holy” Catholic clergy molesting young boys.

    Also, anyone ever seen the Popes flashing the devil-horns to their devoted followers? Plenty of pictures online, just search “pope flashing rock and roll sign”. Funny.

    Next, notice why every Pope or Jesuit wears red shoes? This stems back to the pagan emperors, who wore red/purple shoes because the dye for such colors, made from crushed sea-snails, was rare and considered royal. Funny that this “non pagan” sect keeps paying homage to pagans.

    Also, Jesuits are Luciferians. Don’t believe me? Why has the Vatican named one of its telescopes “Lucifer”? Funny, naming your machines after your supposed “enemy”. Also, anyone notice something funny about Mother Mary whom they call the “Queen of Heaven”? Funny title, considering it was used for Ishtar/Semiramis and various female deities including Nuit.

    Also, anyone know why so many Popes (such as Pope Benedict) have connections to Freemasonry, a Luciferian religion? Why is it that the Vatican was financially supported by the Sicilian Mafia? Why do so many Popes use the Phoenix (Masonic sigil) as their symbol?

    If the Catholics are Christians, why did they slaughter so many when they tried to protest against their false doctrine? Why do Catholics puff up their chests and bare their teeth like wolves when someone criticizes the Pope?

    Why do Catholics call the Pope the “Holy Father”, a title given to God?

    Funny that such a “Christian” cult is so pagan. Funny that a group that says it aligns with Scripture does everything the Scriptures say to not do.

    Why do Catholics pray to Angels? Why do they pray to Saints? Why do they call upon Mary for help? Why do they confess their sins to other men? Why do they pray on rosaries and venerate so many pagan symbols, traditions and values?

    Why do they leave candles at statues? Why do they make an inverted upside-down crucifix when they cross themselves?

    If the Roman Catholic Church is Christian, Africa is covered in ice. I don’t hate Catholics, but I’m tired of their feeble excuses for what they do and practice, when Scripture contradicts them over and over.

    Anyways, God bless. If you are a Catholic and you feel unsure about your faith, please read the Bible and meditate upon it. I promise you will feel more at peace and the Truth will come to you. God bless all of you. Have a good day.

      My goodness you are spot on with everything you stated!! I’m struggling so much because I come from a huge catholic family and I recently discovered the TRUTH. It seems beyond impossible to get through to any of them and it has already started to cause tension and division amongst us which breaks my heart but not more than the haunting thought of all of them perishing in hell. I can’t seem to break free from this thought. I can only pray for a miracle from God to open up their eyes and ears and soften their hearts to the one and only truth. The worst and most frustrating part is that they have the truth right in front of them in black and white yet they refuse to see it. My heart is so heavy with this.
      Thank you for speaking truth. God bless you all.

  6. Before I was called back to YHWH through his son Yashua. Like most I learned of the horrors exposing the Catholic Priesthood and Nuns of the “Faith” like reading or watching a horror movie there are countless accounts of wickedness performed on innocent children and women in countless communities worldwide. What was even more accosting is the length of time that these horrible acts took place. The reprimands are not even severe! This horrible tragedy haunts my dreams at times when I think of my countless ancestors and family members who were and have been viiolated and oppressed repeatedly by these heretics. Yet the TRUTH was always there! Written in the scriptures! No wonder so much of it was hidden from Blacks before, during and after slavery, Jim Crow etc. If you ate Black American, we are in a magnificent spiritual place of awakening. Bless Elohim for our freedom. Amen🙌🏽🙏🏽📖

  7. Your video is very clear as all the others are, except for certain details, which, I imagine, you have not yet been confronted with. I believe in Yeshua my Savior, and i dont follow any religion, for the sake of my Savior’s Messege as it was spread by Yeshua, or Paul. What I wanted was to understand and get closer to his real message. After the gospels, canonical and apocryphal, I looked for what non-Christians said about Yeshua’s earthly life. And as we know, the Jews rejected Yeshua, not considering him as the Messiah. But, it is that I come here to notice, and for that my comment is that in the Qur’an, Yeshua is the Messiah. YESHUA is the only one mentioned in the Qur’an, among all the prophets present, to bear the code of ‘al-Massih, the Messiah. Yeshua, is considered yes as a prophet but with the recognition of scriptural prophecies. Yeshua is for the Muslims the Messiah, you can find in Qur’an Surahs (III-45, IV-157, V-17, IX 30-31) I invite you to clarify this point, because, maybe by talking with a real Muslim, not an extremist or a wahhabist, one who practicee love and submission to one God, the God of Abraham, El ohim – Al lah, same God. Ask him about the position of Yeshua in the Qur’an, and you will understand why I wish this light on the position of Yeshua in Islam.
    Forgive my english, i m not a native English-speaking, but i really appreciate your videos and your channel helped me to improve my life understanding over many points.
    Thanks a lot.
    Be blessed and please keep doing what the Holy Spirit is telling you to do. You are doing a great job in sake of salvation through Yeshua.

    Well said my brother! I was born and raised catholic; was even an alter boy (no molesting thank GOD), and it is by only the Grace of GOD that I am AWAKE and am no longer affiliated with any religion. I am excited to say that I got baptized a couple years ago and my walk with the LORD has been getting stronger. Your videos truly have been inspired by the Holy Spirit!
    GOD BLESS
    Keep up the excellent work!

  9. Jesus /

    Question, So would they be condemned for doing this? like where in scripture does it say they can be condemned for believing in Mary along with Jesus and the Father?

    • Believing in Mary is a form of idolatry. There is no scripture that allows you to believe in anyone other than the Father, the Son, or the Holy Spirit. Belief in any other person or god is a form of idolatry and there are countless scriptures against idolatry

    • The queen of heaven they call mary is actually the queen of Babylon

    Pls I want to ask why is the inverted crosd of Peter used as a sign of Satan
    Am confused about which Bible one should because most of the Bibles nowadays are been edited and they have removed some things inside. Arinze Chioma Juliet
