As a former Roman Catholic I truly appreciate who the REAL Jesus Christ is now more than ever, and I will continue to preach the truth until Jesus comes. What a grand deliverance it is, to know that I do not need to go through an earthly Priest to have my sins forgiven at a confessional booth, or by attending a Roman Catholic Mass. When I think back to all of the years that I spent in the system of Roman Catholicism, and all of the man-made traditions that I endured it is kind of scary. But it works for the good, because I know that I serve an AMAZING God, who was able to pull me out of that darkness into His marvelous light. (1 Peter 2:9-10)
As I look back to the mid 1980’s and all of the Catholic Charismatic Healing Masses that I attended, I remember the Catholic Rosary being prayed continuously during the healing time of the Mass. Mary is such a great stronghold for millions of Catholics, and I liken that to the stronghold of “Diana of the Ephesians” which is written about in Acts 19:21-41. The apostle Paul preached against the idolatry in that city and the place went wild. It can be very exciting to hear and read about supernatural happenings, and that’s what got my attention with the apparitions (appearances) of “Mary” at Medugorje, Yugoslavia. During the time that Cathy and I were in the Catholic Charismatic movement, the Apparitions of Mary at Yugoslavia were pretty popular, and many people were making the trip there to see what was happening. We had met a couple of different people who told us that the gold chain on their Rosary beads changed from a silver color to a golden color, after their visit there. One kind lady told us that she saw a spectacular vision, as she looked into the Sun, and she described it in great detail.
But then Jesus Christ came to the rescue, and the Lord opened up our eyes by His Spirit, and through the truth of the scriptures, He brought us out of that great deception. I must say at this point that many people make the fatal mistake of never studying the Word of God (Bible) for themselves, because if they did, then things would be different. I had a decision to make regarding the messages at Medugorje. When I examined the Bible (the scriptures) I saw that the messages that “Mary” was giving was in direct contradiction to the message of the Bible. You see the Bible puts it’s focus on Jesus Christ and the redemption of souls. When you read the Old Covenant (Testament) you will see many types and shadows, as well as numerous prophecies pointing you to Jesus Christ. It is not about Mary at all.
I am going to address the truth about Israel and their continued rejection of Jesus as the Christ (Messiah), for almost 2000 years! I am writing this because we are living in a day when Christians by the millions have been hoodwinked, and brainwashed, into supporting those who clearly proclaim that Jesus Christ is a FALSE Messiah, and certainly NOT the Son of God. Folks this is very important because that was the exact same attitude that the Jewish people had when Jesus Christ himself preached to the Jews when he walked this Earth . . . In this article I am going to take a look at some of the words that Jesus spoke to the Jewish people then, and I assure you that those same words still hold true today. I will also take a look at other scriptures that will agree with the words of Jesus Christ so that God’s Word may be confirmed in the hearts of truth seekers! There was an evil Zionistic attitude all the way back then in the unbelieving Jewish people who outright hated Jesus Christ, and that attitude is still prevalent in our own time. As adamant as the unbelieving Jews were against Jesus Christ then, so adamant was Jesus Christ in his words and warnings to them, encouraging them all to “repent and believe the Gospel.” (Mark 1:15)
Many people have been joking over the years about the failed “end of the world” prophecies by Harold Camping and many others, but few ever seem to notice one of the greatest hoaxes that has ever come down the pike. I am talking about the hoax of a teaching known as Transubstantiation, which is taught by the church of Rome. Do you believe that it is possible for a Roman Catholic Priest to turn a piece of bread (wafer/host) into the actual body and blood of Jesus Christ? As a former Roman Catholic, I don’t believe it, and millions of other former Roman Catholics do not believe it either. The reformers didn’t believe it either and it cost many of them their very lives as they suffered cruel and torturous deaths.
Some refer to the Catholic teaching of Transusbstantiation as “hocus pocus” and rightly so, but it is a teaching that is believed by millions upon millions to this very day. This is certainly not a light thing because we are talking about a Roman Catholic priest being given the ability, to bring the eternal Son of God (whole and entire) back down on their Catholic altars to be ingested by their parishioners! In this article I will be taking a look at the Roman Catholic teaching regarding transubstantiation, and compare it with the scriptures to prove that it is indeed a hoax.
If a person truly wants to know where they are going to spend eternity it really is not a very difficult thing to understand. The question is this. Do you TRULY want to know where you are going AFTER you die? Most people live their lives without ever taking the time to search out this whole matter for themselves. They may be very nice and decent people (according to their own standard of “good” or the World’s standard of “good”) and thus they are satisfied with themselves, and hope for the best after they die. There is another whole group of people who fall under the title of ATHEIST, and they simply refuse to acknowledge that there is a “God” to whom they will answer, after they leave this world. Then there are the billions who have embraced a FALSE “god” and thus a FALSE religion and are following a path that they believe will lead them to Heaven, but in effect it will lead them to an eternal Hell! If you read or listen to the media you will get the impression that the majority of people are on their way to heaven, while the Bible actually tells us the complete opposite! In fact Jesus Christ, the Son of God sent down from Heaven declared the following:
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (Matthew 7:13-14)
It was the Lord Jesus Christ himself who declared that the way that leads to DESTRUCTION (ultimately Hell) was a very BROAD (wide) road, while the way that leads to LIFE (eternal life) was a narrow way, and only a precious FEW will find it! Was Jesus Christ a LIAR or was he telling the TRUTH here? A person can play games with the scriptures if they like, but in the end they will realize (too late) that they were only kidding themselves. Every day of the week LIES are uttered over the remains of dead people (in the casket) at funerals, who had never turned to the Lord for the salvation of their soul, and smooth sentimental stories are spoken to soothe the loved ones left behind. That is the NORM in most places today. The truth of the whole matter is that the MAJORITY of people actually DIE in their SINS, and ultimately end up in HELL! Why? Simply because they NEVER repented of their sins, and trusted in Jesus Christ. (Mark 1:15, Luke 24:47, John 8:24, 14:6) Is this whole salvation thing serious business? You bet your life it is . . .
I write these articles so that you may know that the Roman Catholic church is a system of idolatry, and the following statement from the Pope, is clear evidence of that. Here is an excerpt from his statement entitled “Jesus cannot be understood without His Mother”
“Mary is so closely united to Jesus because she received from Him the knowledge of the heart, the knowledge of faith, nourished by her experience as a mother and by her close relationship with her Son. The Blessed Virgin is the woman of faith who made room for God in her heart and in her plans; she is the believer capable of perceiving in the gift of her Son the coming of that ‘fullness of time’ in which God, by choosing the humble path of human existence, entered personally into the history of salvation. That is why Jesus cannot be understood without His Mother. [Vatican City, 2 January 2015 (VIS)]
When a truth seeker opens up their Bible they will learn very quickly that Jesus never put his earthly mother on a pedestal as the false church of Rome has always done. The Roman Catholic church reveals their blatant idolatry on a daily basis, as their leaders continue to push the motherhood of Mary, and the motherhood of the church of Rome. It is truly amazing to me that the Christian church remains silent about these things, and has even joined hands with the church of Rome for many decades now. I continue to read Martyr’s Mirror which contains the testimonies of many men and women who were put to death for their stand against her false teachings. They went head to head with the Roman Catholic priests who said the most vile and wicked things, to the precious true saints of God, even until their last breath. The true Christians told their Catholic tormentors that they did not believe in their teachings regarding the Eucharist, the Mass and many other teachings, and they would interrogate them for hours on end. When they did not succeed in getting the Christian to recant of their beliefs they had them put to death. The good news is that you can read the book for FREE MARTYRS MIRROR ONLINE

It is obvious by even this brief glimpse into the doctrines of mortal and venial sins, confession, penance, and purgatory, that the Roman Catholic Church has constructed one of the most unbiblical doctrinal systems that has ever been considered “Christian”. The fear, anguish, and religious bondage that such a system of “reward and punishment” creates, has tormented millions of lives for centuries, and continues to prey on those who are ignorant of the biblical way of salvation. To merely call such a system “a cult”, would be to throw it into the vast category of religions and quasi-religions that are currently making the rounds of our college campuses and city streets, snatching up many an unsuspecting youth. No, the Roman Church is not a cult. It’s an empire! With its own ruler, its own laws, and its own subjects! The empire has no borders, it encompasses the globe with its eye on every person who does not vow allegiance. It calls the members of other faiths “separated brethren” and has as its goal the eventual bringing together of everyone under its flag.
I know that many will not be convinced or moved by this article (or any of the others) to make such a conclusion. They are impressed by what they’ve heard about recent stirrings among the Catholics in the “charismatic renewal”. Many evangelicals (especially Charismatics) have been thrilled by the reports of Catholics speaking in tongues, dancing in the Spirit, having nights of joy and praise, even attending “charismatic masses”. Mouths that used to speak out boldly against the Church of Rome have been quieted by the times. It no longer is in vogue to speak of the pope as “the antichrist” or the Catholic Church as the “whore of Babylon”. Now Protestants unwittingly believe that “our differences are not so great”. Ah, that is just what She needs us to think! I’ve never completely understood why God led me to write these articles. But it becomes more clear with each day of study, and each page of research. Never has something so black and wicked, gotten away with appearing so holy and mysteriously beautiful . . . for so long! [Preacher and Songwriter Keith Green: The Catholic Chronicles]
