My name is WF White and I am so glad that you stopped by. I am a former Roman Catholic and I was saved out of that deceptive religious system all the way back in 1989. I must tell you that it is a miracle to be saved and born again of the Spirit. You will find that many of the articles and videos on this channel expose the false doctrines within the church of Rome. There is also a link to the Soul Refuge You Tube channel on the right side of this page. It is truly a great awakening when I realized that I was sitting under a counterfeit and soul-damning gospel for so many years. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I was on my way to Hell until 1989 when I came to know the REAL Jesus Christ. The Lord opened my eyes to see that there was no such place as Purgatory, and that the Catholic Mass along with the “transubstantiation” performed by their priests was DEMONIC to the very core. The Spirit of truth (Holy Spirit) made it very clear to me that the Roman Catholic version of Mary along with ALL of the apparitions was also totally DEMONIC also. Be Blessed in the Lord Jesus Christ!
Do you remember the time when the disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray?
“And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. ” (Luke 11:1-2)
Did the Lord tell his disciples to pray “Our Mother which art in Heaven” or did he tell them to pray “Our Father which art in Heaven”? Can you find the Lord Jesus Christ ever telling his followers to pray a “Hail Mary” prayer? Can you ever find the Lord Jesus Christ encouraging his followers to build a shrine to his earthly mother Mary? Of course NOT and you will NOT find any of this stuff in the scriptures, so why do people do these things? The bottom line is that they have accepted and believed the words of mere men (man-made tradition) over the scriptures (the Word of God). It is of the utmost importance that people search the scriptures for themselves, as the Bereans did so that they may know the truth that can set them free.
“And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” (Acts 17:10-11)
When you place the words of mere men (man-made tradition), above the word of God, you are setting yourself up for spiritual deception, and the ultimate destruction of your very soul. I am writing here as a former Roman Catholic who was delivered out of the system of Roman Catholicism, and if you are a Roman Catholic I encourage you to leave that system also. I prayed my Hail Mary prayers like any other Roman Catholic would until the time that I was saved and born again of the Spirit of God in 1989. Here is one of the first scriptures that I learned regarding how to pray and who to pray to:
“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;” (1 Timothy 2:5)
The teaching regarding the BREAD of life has become twisted over the centuries and polluted by teachings such as the Roman Catholic Eucharist, and their Priests performing their Transubstantiation on their Catholic altars. I am sorry but this is not what the Lord had in mind when he spoke about the BREAD of Life. Many people do not realize that the Roman Catholic Church teaches that their Priests possess the God given ability to transform the physical bread, and wine, on their altars into the ACTUAL BODY and BLOOD of Jesus Christ. Not only that but there are over 100 Anathemas (curses) still upheld by Rome against people (Christians) who would disagree with teachings such as this! As a former Roman Catholic, I can attest to you that I did not receive everlasting life until I put my trust in Jesus Christ, and when I believed what the Word of God had to say about Him. I received the Roman Catholic Eucharist countless times but I never had everlasting life by doing that. I believed in the Lord Jesus Christ and I knew that He had justified me by His death on the cross (Romans 5:6-9), and that is the will of God for every person in this world in which we live.
