The Catechism of the Catholic Church (or CCC) is an official exposition of the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.
Pope John Paul II declared it authoritative, it to be "a sure norm for teaching the faith and thus a valid and legitimate instrument for ecclesial communion."


The following "BIBLICAL CONTRASTS" is taken from a publication by

Biblical Truth paragraphs are left-justified


New Catechism paragraphs are right-justified

Thy Word IS Truth


The Basis
of Truth

Biblical Truth

The light of God's Word

The Bible only is the Standard for Truth

"...the scripture cannot be broken." John 10:35
"Sanctify them through Thy truth: The word is truth." John 17:17
"That ye might learn in us not to think...above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another." 1 Corinthians 4:6
"Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar." Proverbs 30:6

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works." II Timothy 3:16-17
"Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered..." Mark 7:13


New Catechism
Catechism of the Catholic Church (1994)

Truth is based on Scripture, Tradition, and the Pope

"Sacred Tradition and Sacred Scripture, then, are bound closely
together and communicate one with the other."
Catechism of the Catholic Church
Para 80
"And [Holy] Tradition transmits in its entirety the Word of God
which has been entrusted to the apostles by Christ the Lord
and the Holy Spirit."
Para 81

"As a result the [Roman Catholic] Church...does not derive her certainty
about all revealed truths from the holy Scriptures alone.
Both Scripture and Tradition must be accepted
honored with equal sentiments of devotion and reverence." Para 82
"The Supreme Pontiff, in virtue of his office, possesses infallible teaching
authority when, as supreme pastor and teacher
of all the faithful...
he proclaims with a definitive act that a doctrine of faith or
morals is to be held as such." Para 891


by Grace

Salvation is by Grace Alone through Faith

"Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus." Romans 3:24

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: It is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."
Ephesians 2:8,9

"For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ." Romans 5:17
"Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us..." Titus 3:5-6

"I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain." Galatians 2:21


For Salvation, Grace becomes merely a help, and
is given through the sacraments of the Church

"Grace is the help God gives us to respond to our vocation of
becoming his adopted sons. It introduces us into the
intimacy of the Trinitarian life."
Para 2021

"The Church affirms that for believers the sacraments of the
New Covenant are necessary for salvation.
'Sacramental grace' is the grace of the Holy Spirit
given by Christ and proper to each sacrament."
Para 1129

"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."
Para 1493


Faith is

Faith is the Gift of God and comes by the Word of God

"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house." Acts 16:31

"For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake." Philippians 1:29

"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17


Christ's Sacrifice continues, and is also of the Church

"In this divine sacrifice which is celebrated in the Mass,
the same Christ who offered himself once in a bloody manner
on the altar of the cross is contained and is offered
in an unbloody manner."
Para 1367

"The Eucharist is also the sacrifice of the [Roman Catholic] Church.
The Church which is the Body of Christ participates
in the offering of her Head.

With him, she herself is offered whole and entire." Para 1368


God, the
All Holy

God is the Only All Holy One, and the Only Source of Holiness

"Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory." Isaiah 6:3

"Who shall not fear Thee, O Lord, and glorify Thy name" For Thou only art Holy: for all nations shall come and worship before Thee..." Revelation 15:4

"There is none holy as the Lord: for there is none beside Thee: neither is there any rock like our God." 1 Samuel 2:2

"I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images." Isaiah 42:8


Mary is also the All-Holy One, and the Source of Holiness

"By asking Mary to pray for us, we acknowledge ourselves to the
'Mother of Mercy,' the All Holy One." Para 2677

"From the [Roman Catholic] Church he learns the example of
holiness and recognizes its model and source in the
all-holy Virgin Mary..."
Para 2030

"The Fathers of the Eastern tradition call the Mother of God
'the All-Holy' (Panagia),
and celebrate her as
'free from any stain of sin, as though fashioned by the Holy spirit
and formed as a new creature' " Para 493



In Salvation the Lord Jesus Christ Alone Mediates

"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus." 1 Timothy 2:5

"Neither is here salvation in any other: for here is none other name [Jesus Christ' under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved." Acts 4:12

In Salvation "Mary" Also Mediates

"Taken up to heaven she did not lay aside this saving office
but by her manifold intercession continues to bring us the
gifts of eternal salvation...
Therefore the Blessed Virgin
is invoked in the [Roman Catholic] Church under the titles of
Advocate, Helper, Benefactress, and Mediatrix."
Para 969



God Hates Idolatry

"Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything... Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them." Exodus 20:4-5

"And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even Ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone. Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner to similitude on the day that the LORD spake... Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure..." Deuteronomy 4:13, 15-16

"Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen." 1 John 5:21


The Roman Catholic Church Rationalizes Idolatry

"The Christian veneration of images is not contrary to the first
commandment which proscribes idols.
Indeed, the honor
rendered to an image passes to its prototype, and whoever
venerates an image venerates the person
portrayed in it."
Para 2132

"Basing itself on the mystery of the incarnate Word, the
seventh ecumenical council at Nicaea (787)
justified... the veneration of icons -
of Christ,
but also of the Mother of God, the angels, and all the saints.
By becoming incarnate, the Son of God
introduced a new 'economy' of images."
Para 2131


with the

This Pagan Practice is Forbidden in the Bible

"I am the LORD thy God... Thou shalt have no other gods before me." Exodus 20:2-3

"There shall not be found among you any one... that useth divination, or an observer of times, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. [one who calls up the dead]."

"And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits [divination: contacting the dead], and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people. Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God." Leviticus 20:6-7


Practice is Recommended by Rome

"Communion with the dead. In full consciousness of this communion
of the whole Mystical Body of Jesus Christ, the [Roman Catholic] Church
in its pilgrim members, from the earliest days of the Christian religion,
has honored with great respect the memory of the dead...
Our prayer for them is capable not only of helping them,
but also of making their intercession for us effective."
Para 958

"The witnesses who have preceded us into the kingdom, especially those
whom the [Roman Catholic] Church recognizes as saints, share in the
living tradition of prayer... Their intercession is their most exalted service...
We can and should ask them to intercede for us
and for the whole world."
Para 2683

Fifty Years in the Church of Rome, by Charles Chiniquy

I have to be honest: it is really making me physically ill to type these abominable "differences" so divergent from the Bible, adopted by the Roman Catholic Church!

Small wonder that they put obstacles when any even think to read the Bible for themselves, such as, an "interpreter" such as a priest or bishop be needed to aid in its understanding!

Jesus told us to "search the Scriptures," each and everyone of us! Jesus preached to the masses, his chosen disciples to be for the most part simple, unlearned folk!

Typing this has been a most distressing experience! I want to get on my knees and beg God forgive that we be so blind to that which he so pointedly showed us in His Love Letter to us!

PETER,... the "ROCK?" Jesus said: Mat.10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

This is a wonderful expository on this subject!

Please view! It is meant to clear the deception the Roman Catholic Church has perpetrated regarding the "prominence" of Peter!

Should anyone insist that Peter be the "ROCK," after viewing these videos, then, the same will also agree that Peter IS Satan!

Again, should anyone insist that Peter be the "ROCK," after viewing these videos, then, the same will also agree that Peter IS Satan!

Did Jesus build His Church upon Satan? You cannot have it both ways!

This analogy is no different than when He stated in

John 2:19 (King James Version)

19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.

THIS temple was said in reference to HIM, HIS BODY!

Please, pay attention to these beautiful lyrics!

FOOTPRINTS... A New Version

Imagine you and the Lord Jesus are walking down the road together. For much of the way, the Lord's footprints go along steadily, consistently, rarely varying the pace. But your footprints are a disorganized stream of zigzags, starts, stops, turnarounds, circles, departures, and returns. For much of the way, it seems to go like this, but gradually your footprints come more in line with the Lord's, soon paralleling, His consistently. You and Jesus are walking as true friends! This seems perfect, but then an interesting thing happens: Your footprints that once etched the sand next to Jesus' are now walking precisely in His steps. Inside His larger footprints are your smaller ones, you and Jesus are becoming one. This goes on for many miles, but gradually you notice another change... The footprints inside the large footprints seem to grow larger... Eventually they disappear altogether. There is only one set of footprints. They have become one.

This goes on for a long time, but suddenly the second set of footprints is back. This time it seems even worse! Zigzags all over the place. Stops. Starts. Gashes in the sand. A variable mess of prints. You are amazed and shocked. Your dream ends.

Now you pray: "Lord, I understand the first scene, with zigzags and fits. I was a new Christian; I was just learning. But You walked on through the storm and helped me learn to walk with You."
"That is correct."
"And when the smaller footprints were inside of Yours, I was actually learning to walk in Your steps, following You very closely."
"Very good... You have understood everything so far."
"When the smaller footprints grew and filled in Yours, I suppose that I was becoming like You in every way."
"So, Lord, was there a regression or something? The footprints separated, and this time it was worse than at first."

There is a pause as the Lord answers, with a smile in His voice.
"You didn't know? It was then that we danced!"

Ecclesiastes 3:1-4 (King James Version)

1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

I have Christy Lane's collection, this being my very favorite to hear!

Exodus 20

The Ten Commandments

1 And God spoke all these words:

2 "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

3 "You shall have no other gods before me.

4 "You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.

5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,

6 but showing love to a thousand {generations} of those who love me and keep my commandments.

7 "You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

8 "Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.

9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work,

10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates.

11 For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

12 "Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.

13 "You shall not murder.

14 "You shall not commit adultery.

15 "You shall not steal.

16 "You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

17 "You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.

------------------------------ ------------------------

The Ten Commandments according to what is taught Catholics in Catechism:


You shall have no other gods.


You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God.


Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.


Honor your father and mother, that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.


You shall not murder.


You shall not commit adultery.


You shall not steal.


You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.


You shall not covet your neighbor's house.


You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, workers, animals, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.

------------------------------ ------------------------

The "short version" of the Ten Commandments for every OTHER THAN Catholic religion, and simple Bible-Believers:

1 -Thou shalt not have any other gods besides me
2 -Thou shalt not make for thyself any graven image
3 - Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain
4 - Remember to keep holy the sabbath day
5 - Honour thy father and mother
6 - Thou shalt not kill.
7 -Thou shalt not commit adultery.
8 - Thou shalt not steal.
9 - Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor. (i.e., LYING!)
10 - Thou shalt not covet

------------------------------ ------------------------

As one can readily see, in the Catholic version, there is NO MENTION OF THE ACTUAL SECOND COMMANDMENT'S REFERENCE TO IDOLS. Thus, the order is changed.

Instead, so as to arrive at the same number, they SPLIT THE 10TH COMMANDMENT IN TWO!!

Thus, it is, that the Catholic Religion has systematically DISTORTED all and everything it could TO CONFORM TO THEIR FABRICATED VERSION OF EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING THAT HAS TO DO WITH THE BIBLE!!

Papal infalibility? Peter, the rock?

No fictionalized account can boast of more intrigue, illicit relationships and murder, a veritable "who done it" in the greatest measure, as does the history of the Papacy! At one time there were three such "popes," each fighting for sovereignty in his own "right!" It was he who was more powerful politically that was to win: the Roman Catholic Church, whose exercise of political power has been waged through the centuries, through the World Wars, and is felt to this day, albeit, quite covertly!

As just shown in the previous post, Pope Clement XIV FOREVER BANNED the Order of the Jesuits on July 21, 1773, and died on September 22, 1774, a mysterious death, attributed to poison administered by the Jesuits!


Roman Catholics, invariably, will never fail to remind anyone who will listen that their church was "founded" by Jesus Christ. THIS IS NOT SO!!

They will bring up the fact that Jesus said to Peter "On this rock,..." to mean Peter, the rock! THIS IS NOT SO, EITHER!!

But, supposing that it was Peter whom Christ addressed as a "rock!" Would it be the same Peter who was to betray Him three times?!

The same Peter who gave in to compromises with the Judaizers, and who had to be harshly rebuked by Paul in Galatians 2:14 "When I saw that they were not acting in line with the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter in front of them all, "You are a Jew, yet you live like a Gentile and not like a Jew. How is it, then, that you force Gentiles to follow Jewish customs?"

[It becomes obvious to anyone who has been on the blog before, of who knows me, that I have come to learn the truth of God's word can only be found in the King James Bible, of which I did not learn until sometime AFTER this post. I will, eventually, change the verses shown to reflect the King James Bible's accurate translation!]

Matthew 16:16-19 (New American Standard Bible)

16 Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."
17And Jesus said to him, "Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.
18 "I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it.
19 "I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven."

...namely, on the PREACHING of Christ, the true "ROCK," by connection with whom only he was given the designation: a title shared in common on the same grounds by the rest of the apostles, as the first founders of the catholic* Church of Christ, "the chief corner-stone"

*catholic definition = UNIVERSAL

Ephesians 2:18-20

18 for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father.
19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints,* and are of God's household,
20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone,
*saints here NOT to mean any dead ones, as the Roman Catholic Church sees them. Saints in those days were ANY WHO SHARED BELIEF IN CHRIST, as they still are, outside of the Roman Catholic Church!

A name is often given in Hebrew, not that the person is actually the thing itself, but has some special relation to it;

as Elijah means "Mighty Jehovah," so Simon is called Peter "the rock," not that he is so, save by connection with Jesus, the only true Rock.

Isaiah 28:16

16 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD,
"Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone,
A costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed.
He who believes in it will not be disturbed.

1 Corinthians 3:11

11 For no man can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

Romans 9:33

33 just as it is written,

Psalm 118:22

22 The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief corner stone.

Isaiah 8:14

14 "Then He shall become a sanctuary;
But to both the houses of Israel, a stone to strike and a rock to stumble over,
And a snare and a trap for the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

Matthew 21:42

42 Jesus said to them, "Did you never read in the Scriptures,

Acts 4:11

Ephesians 2:20
20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone,

1 Peter 2:6

6 For this is contained in Scripture:

Surely Peter was not so presumptuous as to believing himself to be the cornerstone, the rock!

No, this was a purposefully engendered lie by the Roman Catholic Church, centuries later. Ironically, the "church" as such did not even come into prominence as being called such until the third century, over three hundred years after the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.


In his own day, Peter never knew he to be a "pope!" Peter's failure to fulfill his mission among the Jews became evident very soon for his willingness to compromise the teachings of Christ. It is thanks to Paul, as stated previously, that Christianity was salvaged, Peter having been brought to his senses quite publicly by Paul, himself.

Paul's mission given to him DIRECTLY by Christ, was to spread the Gospel among the Gentiles. Paul was an erudite Jew, and would have much preferred to have done so among the Jews, as he so states. I am sorry, as I have said before, I cannot recall chapter and verse to point such instances readily, but, I KNOW THEM TO BE IN THE NEW TESTAMENT and can paraphrase them. Anyone in doubt should verify the same.

And Paul fulfilled his mission, unwaveringly, to the end, as he so states: I have run the course! I have fought the good fight!

One who delved among the Jews also was James, who, it seems, held a "higher" position than Peter. Peter to NEVER have been in Rome, either!

1 Corinthians 10.4

"and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, AND THAT ROCK WAS CHRIST."

Just as Paul says in Galatians 3:16 The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed.

The Scripture does not say and to seeds, meaning many people, but and to your seed, meaning ONE person, who is Christ.
I doubt very much that God would have sacrificed His only son, and risk the Holy Scripture NOT be followed by entrusting one sole person, WEAK AS HE PROVED HIMSELF TO BE, and Christ was well aware of his weakness!


Mankind had already proven to God, time and again, that it could not be trusted:

In Hebrews 8:9 It will not be like the covenant I made with their forefathers when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, BECAUSE THEY DID NOT REMAIN FAITHFUL TO MY COVENANT, and I turned away from them, declares the Lord.

Neither has the Roman Catholic Church remained faithful, ONE among many of the Catholic Churches in existence, 52 to be exact,... so far!

Roman Catholics love to point out how it is that there are a number of Protestant Churches as opposed to there being only One Catholic Apostolic Church!! WRONG!! THERE ARE 52 such, MOST, IF NOT ALL, PROFESSING THE SAME LINEAGE, CATHOLIC APOSTOLIC CHURCHES, and, perhaps, still counting, with power struggles surfacing within their midst to this day.

Galatians 5:
4 You who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.
7 "You were running well; who hindered you from obeying the truth?
8 This persuasion did not come from Him Who calls you."
9 "A little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough."

Thus, if you in the Catholic church seek to live by your man-made doctrines and dogmas:

Galatians 5:4
You who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.

At first, it was the catholic Church of Jesus Christ, catholic with a small "c," which definition is "universal!" This a concept that was primordial in the choosing of it to be a Catholic, with a big "C" church.

He despised the tradition of the Pharisees!

Matthew 15:1-3

Tradition and Commandment
1 Then some Pharisees and scribes came to Jesus from Jerusalem and said,
2 "Why do Your disciples break the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread."
3 And He answered and said to them, "Why do you yourselves transgress the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition?

Mark 2:23-28
Lord of the Sabbath
23 One Sabbath Jesus was going through the grainfields, and as his disciples walked along, they began to pick some heads of grain. 24The Pharisees said to him, "Look, why are they doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?"
25 He answered, "Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry and in need? 26In the days of Abiathar the high priest, he entered the house of God and ate the consecrated bread, which is lawful only for priests to eat. And he also gave some to his companions."
27 Then he said to them, "The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.

28 So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath."



"Would heretics dare to come to the very seat of Peter whence apostolic faith is derived and whither no errors can come" (Epistulae 59 (55), 14, [256 A.D.] Fallible means to err. Here it says they can't, which means the Pope is infallible.

I dare anyone to find me a Muslim, the most ignorant one there is, and have him bow before the Cross, kiss the Cross, be baptized, place the Cross in a Mosque or in Mecca!! I wager my own life there is not one such who would compromise their faith in such a way.

But here we have the Pope, the LEADER of the Roman Catholic Church doing all of this and worse, the other way around!

This one is self-explanatory!! John Paul II kissing the Koran, Islam's Holy Book, JUST AS HE DOES THE HOLY BIBLE!!

Here is Pope John Paul II confidently being anointed with the pagan "Sign of the Tilak"- A PAGAN RELIGION, NO LESS!!

And here, Pope John Paul II, unceremoniously places Buddha ATOP the Tabernacle, in Assisi, to be WORSHIPED TOGETHER WITH THE EUCHARIST during the ensuing ceremony!

View the following sites for more proof.
A picture is worth a thousand words, indeed!

Thursday, November 30, 2006 "Pope turns to Mecca at Istanbul"

From correspondents in Istanbul
"AFTER offending the Muslim world by linking their religion with violence, Pope Benedict XVI, in an exceptional gesture, turned towards Mecca in an attitude of Muslim prayer at the Blue Mosque in Istanbul today, Turkish state television showed."

On May 8, 2009, this very Pope was visiting an Amman Mosque!!!
And, for certain, BOWING!!

The 1st Commandment:


The 2nd Commandment:

Thou shalt NOT make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: THOU SHALT NOT BOW DOWN THYSELF TO THEM: FOR I THE LORD THY GOD AM A JEALOUS GOD, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments."

(Know that even the order of the Commandments was altered by the Roman Catholic Church, in order to accommodate their idols.)

I wonder what part of "NOT" do these so-called leaders not get!!!

The Catholic Church has and does, continually, compromise Christian values to "appease" and garner favor with "all religions!" View "A Woman Rides the Beast - Dave Hunt" by BereanBeacon, and you will see that the New World Order is exactly what is in view in all sectors, political and religious!!

The Catholic Church, Chapter 841:

The Church's relationship with the Muslims. "The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in 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."

My goodness!! They completely MISS what the "plan of salvation" really involves!!



Is he saved, according to the Catholic Church??!! This is blasphemy!!

Furthermore, the allah of Islam IS NOT THE ALMIGHTY GOD!!

allah is no more than a figment of the imagination of one who was a pedophile, a thief, a sex pervert and abuser women, a murderer!

The koran reads like a book on filth! Pure, unadulterated FILTH, and here Pope John Paul II was kissing it!!

Anyone wanting to know more please tune into my YouTube RainhadoCanto7 channel, which is "dedicated" to Islam! Better yet, look up the channels of those to whom I subscribe, many of whom CONVERTED from Islam, and seek to disseminate the truth of the Gospel! And these are not engaged in "Muslim bashing," either!


John 14:6

Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Matthew 7:

13 "Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it.
14 "For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it."

What sobering words! These, alone, should give all pause!!
Here HE tells us that there are "few who find it"!

Let's pray that we number among the "few" who find it!

Tell me, by what INFALLIBLE DOGMA OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH did Pope John Paul place the BUDDHA ON THE ALTAR TO BE WORSHIPED TOGETHER WITH THE HOLY EUCHARIST?? Is worshiping not a matter of faith?

Anyone who has read the post on "Mary Worship?" has seen the contradiction after contradiction that has come out of the Vatican through the centuries:

"Pope Benedict XV said of Mary that [O]ne can justly say that with Christ, she herself redeemed mankind."

Christ, Who, as you have read before, distanced Himself from her, addressing her as "woman," and never having called her mother!

"Pope Pius IX said, Our salvation is based upon the holy Virgin."

A "virgin" whom the Bible shows to have had other children!

"However, as we will see, the teaching of the Assumption originated with heretical writings which were officially condemned by the early Church.

"In 495 A.D., Pope Gelasius issued a decree which rejected this teaching as heresy and its proponents as heretics.

"In the sixth century, Pope Hormisdas also condemned as heretics those authors who taught the doctrine of the Assumption of Mary. The early Church clearly considered the doctrine of the Assumption of Mary to be a heresy worthy of condemnation.

"Here we have infallible popes declaring something to be a heresy. Then in 1950, Pope Pius XII, another infallible pope, declared it to be official Roman Catholic doctrine."

Had she been "assumed into Heaven," John, to whom Christ entrusted her, would never have missed noting it for us!

One would think that if anyone had it right, it would have been the early church leaders!

"The Pope is said to be infallible whenever he makes an official decree on matters of faith and morals. According to Catholic doctrine, it is impossible for the Pope to teach false doctrine. Catholics are expected to obey the Pope without question, even when he is not making an infallible statement about doctrine. They are expected to submit their wills and minds to the Pope without question.

"The Early Fathers, and the theologians and canon lawyers of the Middle Ages, never taught that the bishops or the Pope were infallible. This is demonstrated by the fact that in 680 A.D., the Sixth Ecumenical Council condemned a pope as a heretic. It was not until the fourteenth century that the theory of infallibility began to emerge. With the development of this theory came a change in the interpretation of some biblical passages." - Mary Ann Collins, former nun.

JIM LEHRER: There was an extraordinary event in Rome yesterday as Pope John Paul II issued an apology for errors of his church over the last 2000 years.

P MORGAN: The pope's "Day of Pardon" mass was designed, in the Vatican's words, to ask forgiveness for the past and present sins of the Church.

Sins shared through the promptings of the "ruling" Popes!

Pope John Paul II also endorsed DARWINISM, as does Pope Benedict XVI, which is TOTALLY CONTRARY TO THE TEACHINGS IN GOD'S WORD!! God's Word to have become irrelevant in the Roman Catholic Church.

1 Corinthians 1:25 (King James Version)

25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men;
and the weakness of God is stronger than men

1 Timothy 4

1 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons,
2 by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron,
3 men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth.
4 For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with gratitude;
5 for it is sanctified by means of the word of God and prayer.
"To Him such 'holiness' is a sham!! God calls their sacrifices 'futile' and their incense 'an abomination,' the spiritual basis of their worship to be profane. Their worship merely went through the motions with punctilious observance of the Sabbath and rituals. Obviously, the god they conceived was not the true God because He is more concerned with right relationships than scrupulous regard for ceremony.

"They broke both the first and second commandments: They conjured up their own image of God and then worshiped in the name of the true God as they saw fit. Worship is the reaction to one's god at all times and cannot be separated from character and attitudes. The true God cannot be fooled." (Adapted from The Berean)

And this is exactly how it is that the Roman Catholic Church has reinvented God, to suit their own purposes!

"The Cross and the Mass by Richard Bennett" video by BereanBeacon. Mr. Bennett was a devout priest for 22 years, and this is a most painful and compassionate testimony of his redemption in order to bring the truth to the Catholics who are still deceived by the guile of the Catholic Church!

Galatians 5:9
"A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough."

And, continuously, it has been contaminated, under the auspices of this "infalible church!"

Galatians 5:4
"You who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace."

Galatians 2:11 "But when Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned."

It seems that catering to ALL had a sad beginning with Peter, which is what the Catholic Church seems to wish to emulate, perpetually!!

John 15:22
"If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin."

Thus, anyone who has read these posts can never claim ignorance as an excuse:

But, I concede that there is only so much one can do with some!! Jesus tells us, quite well, how to proceed!

Mark 6:
10 And He said to them, "Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave town.
11 "Any place that does not receive you or listen to you, as you go out from there, shake the dust off the soles of your feet for a testimony against them."
12 They went out and preached that men should repent.

Once we have done our best to open the eyes of the blind, what he/she chooses to see, is totally up to God!!

John 6:
44 "No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day.
45 "It is written in the prophets, 'AND THEY SHALL ALL BE TAUGHT OF GOD.' Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father, comes to Me."

Matthew 11:25-27

(27) All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.

John 14:6-10

(6) Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

One need read the Bible in order to learn. Otherwise, no teaching can be accomplished!!

Matthew 10:
11 Whatever town or village you enter, find out who is worthy in it and stay there until you leave.12 As you enter the house, greet it.
13 If the house is worthy let your blessing of peace come on it. But if it isn't worthy, let your blessing of peace return to you.
14 If no one welcomes you or listens to your words, as you leave that house or town, shake its dust off your feet.
15 Truly I tell you, it will be more bearable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town!

There is, obviously, a big difference between being judgmental and using discernment!!
HE called us to use our discernment!!

Ignorance of this difference, will not be an excuse!!

1 Corinthians 16:13
"Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong"

And, it surely isn't that we can make conditions upon which, depending on any outcome, we decide whether He is worthy of our belief or not! He needs us not! WE NEED HIM, DESPERATELY! Here, Timmo (bloootube channel on YouTube) caves in to "please" someone, which is exactly his style, he to have gained many medals for brown-nosing! To "stand firm," to "be a man of courage," not to be part of his vocabulary, at all, much less his character!



Then he goes on to say: "Early in this decade I was in poor health - unable to work - and it was largely my Roman Catholic friends who sent me food - clothing - and surrounded me by Love in many many ways." This is laughable!! I cannot believe a 60-year-old makes such ludicrous statements!!




It truly SICKENS ME that anyone who purportedly KNOWS THE BIBLE, as does Timmo, would be so twisted as to brand anyone who does STAND FIRM and IS of COURAGE, no more than what Christ, Himself, proposed we do, as "Catholic bashing!"

Analogous to this is the extreme Left's retort that, should anyone question ANYTHING Barack Obama does, it is because he/she must be a racist! This is the epitome of ignorance! This is pure malevolence!!

And it is simply beyond pathetic to claim that because "There are many charities here in Pittsburgh - including crisis pregnancy centers - that COULD NOT FUNCTION without Roman Catholic people and resources" What a joke! So because they do charity, it is OK to not observe the Word of God! How pathetic! By the way, so do many other denominations, albeit not as loudly advertised, obviously, to include the Jews and the Salvation Army!

"I Love my Roman Catholic brothers and sisters, and I take grave offense when my fellow evangelicals initiate or perpetuate ad hominem attacks against Roman Catholics." says Timmo!

It is not only pathetic, IT IS DOWNRIGHT OFFENSIVE that such a MORONIC statement be made!! There are so very many who truly wrestle with the love for their own family who are in the grip of this religion, and the OBLIGATION they have to bring these to the Lord, at the expense of being made outcasts, themselves!! The incredibly horrible dilemma involved in this, and this fool claims it to be "Catholic bashing!"



It would be so much easier to just do nothing, and be selfish for having the peace it brings you to know that you have Eternal Salvation, while it is that these others can do no more than contemplate a shorter stay in purgatory to pay for their sins! Can there be a more selfish act than to NOT share THE GOOD NEWS?!

You should have seen Timmo in a discussion with my friends, back in 2008, upholding the very views I sponsor, friends who are Born Again Christians, which, Timmo, also, PRETENDED to be! A complete fake is this most contemptible being! This the wolf in sheep's clothing about which the Bible warns us! A Bible verse perpetually on their lips, with the most evil of intentions lurking within!

Matthew 7:15
"Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16 (a)By their fruit you will recognize them.


He also writes: "However, I will not permit my site to be turned into a clearinghouse for a cornucopia of theological/ideological agendas." Here a spot of much-needed humor! Anyone see the possibility that anyone has cared to do so on his most bland of channels? Ever? He is delusional, at best!

And this from someone who has NEVER cared to make his "ministering" public on YouTube! Of course not! He has too many Roman Catholic "friends" he would not dare offend!! But he never fails to let a few know of how he continually "ministers," for 20-plus years, the very same people, who he doesn't even know if they are saved.

Titus 3:10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;
Titus 3:11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.

Paul is quite clear as to this, that it not to be done like so! But, of course, because Timmo says so does not mean it is true! After all, he was also "ministering" to that guy whose only interest was to make gory horror videos... about which, as it turned out, Timmo was giving him pointers, and for which he was thanked,... just this last Christmas day of 2008!

But, then, he also says he isn't sure of his own salvation!
I am not surprised!

Proverbs 26:4-5

(4) Do not answer a fool according to his folly,
Lest you also be like him.
(5) Answer a fool according to his folly,
Lest he be wise in his own eyes.

And before there be some finger-pointing in my direction:

Matthew 5:22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

Timmo has been very GOOD about providing PLENTY OF CAUSE!

Timmo had also best keep in mind a couple of Scripture verses:

Mark 9:42
42 "Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe to stumble, it would be better for him if, with a heavy millstone hung around his neck, he had been cast into the sea.

Matthew 18:7
"Woe to the world because of its stumbling blocks! For it is inevitable that stumbling blocks come; but woe to that man through whom the stumbling block comes!"

"as we attempt to extend to a discouraged world the Good News of Love, Forgiveness and Reconciliation during these perilous times." someone wrote!

Actually, it is Repentance that is a Necessary preparation for Receiving the Gospel: The Good News!
Forgiveness of Sins is more readily realized (and RECOGNIZED!)
when we are most AWARE of OUR SIN !

The times are to become even more perilous, and without true repentance, there can be no forgiveness!

Matthew 3:8 "Bear fruit worthy of repentance," said John the Baptist!


Proverbs 9:10
"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding."

I would like to share with you a most beautiful video "The Holy Character of God"[Knowing God!]"by Aflame4God

(8) Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.”
(9) Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
(10) Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.

Jesus is saying, "If you want to see the mind and nature of God, if you want to see His attitudes, look at Me." God reveals Himself and declares His glory to us through the life, works, and words of Jesus of Nazareth as He opens our minds by His Holy Spirit. (The Berean)

May our Father draw and enlighten anyone who comes to Him in humility!



There is none, especially if having read the Book of Revelation of the Bible, who will contest the fact that we are, most certainly, living in the last days. Therefore, all the more urgency to bring more souls to Salvation Eternal.

Revelation 18

1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.

2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

"Come out of her, my people!" PLEASE!

Just what will it take to have innocent believing Roman Catholics open their eyes in time? Please heed these dire warnings!

Isaiah 55:6
Seek the LORD while He may be found,
Call upon Him while He is near.

Appropriately, just this morning, I got the Bible verse for today from The Berean, an electronic subscription worth having:

Revelation 3:15-16

(15) "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. (16) So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.
Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.

Christ admits the truth about them. "I know your works [obedience and service], that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot" (Revelation 3:15). Why does He wish this? Because if they were either cold or hot, they would be useful to Him. Lukewarm Christians send confusing messages. In this state, being useless to Him, He spews them out of His mouth. All the messages to these seven churches highlight works because they are evidence of how Christians conduct their relationships with God. Works reveal the heart. They are a gauge of one's witness and spiritual state.

Metaphorically, what does lukewarmness signify here? To define it to this point, a rough definition might be "that which gives no refreshment, or that which has neither the cleansing properties of hot water nor the refreshing properties of cold." Modern synonyms of the word "lukewarm" give illuminating insights into its use in this letter: lacking ardor, enthusiasm or conviction; moderate; mild; unemotional; halfhearted; hesitant; indecisive; irresolute; uncertain; uncommitted; unresponsive; indifferent; impassive; languid; phlegmatic; apathetic; nonchalant; lackadaisical.

Recall the hallmarks of Babylon: pride, self-glorification, reliance on wealth, satiety, complacency, avoidance of suffering. Although he has the abilities and resources to be a great witness, the Laodicean is complacent, self-satisfied, bored with or indifferent to the real issues of life. For a Christian, the real issues are faith in Christ and our Christian responsibility. And to do the work Christ has called us to, our loyalty and devotion must be to Him, first and foremost!

A problem arises, however, in "spotting" a Laodicean—these qualities do not necessarily show on the outside. Why? Remember Christ describes a spiritual condition. This is a matter of the heart. What does He want to see in him? He wants the Laodicean to get off the fence—to be one way or the other, cold or hot. Conversely, the Laodicean judges that he is balanced, right in the middle. But his concept of balance is skewed. Why will he not move off the middle? He feels he has it good there! If he moves left or right, he fears that he will suffer! Thus, he has no desire to move.

Then what happens? The Laodicean must compromise. This is interesting in light of what the history books record. Ancient Laodicea's main line of defense was conciliation and compromise! Why? Again, the answer lies in the city's inadequate water supply, making it very susceptible to the siege of an invading army. By having its tenuous water supply cut off, the city was at the mercy of its attacker. With no water, it could hold out for only a short while. The Laodicean solution? They became masters of appeasement, accommodation, conciliation, and diplomacy. Peace at any cost! How did they appease? They bought their enemies off! Laodicea used its wealth to conciliate and compromise.

Christ uses the attitude of the surrounding environment to illustrate that those in the church of Laodicea are affected by the attitudes of the world. Without even realizing it, they behave exactly like their unconverted neighbors. They are worldly. Though they are not out on the streets robbing banks, raping, looting, murdering, mugging old grandmothers, or abusing children, in their hearts they have the same general approach to life as Babylon has. Theologically, spiritually, they hold the same values as Babylon, proved by their works. Spiritually, they become very adept in avoiding the sacrifices that might be necessary to overcome and grow in character, wisdom, and understanding. In other words, they are skilled in appeasing Satan and their own consciences.

Christ says He will spew, or vomit, the Laodicean from His mouth! That is how He views this attitude of compromise with principles, ideals, standards, and truth!

Some may expect Laodiceans to be lazy, but on the contrary they are often workaholics. Satan has foisted this false concept of Laodiceanism onto the church. One cannot become "rich and increased with goods" by being lazy! Their problem is a faulty setting of priorities. They are very vigorous people, but they are vigorous in areas that fail miserably to impress their Judge, Christ. Vigorous in conducting business and other carnal affairs, they are lackadaisical in pursuing the beauty of holiness, which is their calling. They are not vigorous or zealous in maintaining their prayer life with God or in studying. They are not energetic in making the sacrifices necessary to love their brethren or in developing their relationships with others. Nor are they enthusiastic about guarding the standards and principles of God. By erring in the setting of priorities, they victimize themselves.

Over the last fifteen years of his life, Herbert Armstrong expressed deep concern about the church becoming Laodicean. Because of the plethora of activities this world offers, he saw that ultimately they distract us, cause us to set wrong priorities, and keep us from putting our time, energy, and vigor into godly things. He often cited Daniel 12:4 as a telltale sign of the last days: "Seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase." Are we busy in this age? Satan is a slick strategist, and he really deceives anyone who allows himself to believe that busyness and prosperity are signs of righteousness.

John W. Ritenbaugh
From The World, the Church and Laodiceanism

This tells us we cannot afford to sit on the fence, and have our temperatures regarding our fervency for the Lord rise according to the occasion, and just to impress the audience. Unfortunately, this is how many behave! We must rely on the strength of our firm convictions for which we will go to bat, anytime, anywhere, anyhow, whomever the audience be!!

There is only ONE we need please! There is only ONE we need fear!

Matthew 10:27-28
(27) "Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops.
(28) And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

The very LAST chapter in the Bible,
Revelation 22 WARNS ALL:

18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book.
19 And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.

Thus, when it is that the Roman Catholic Church preaches that the Catechism is just as relevant as the Bible,... IT IS WRONG!

No dogmas, no ordinances, no tradition takes precedence,... EVER!

I was sickened to just view on the Catholic channel, the sale of a scapular which "all priests and nuns wear, and are thus, ASSURED OF SALVATION!" Salvation sold for just $10.00. What a bargain, indeed!


To use just common sense alone: After getting one of these, why would any Roman Catholic bother to pray or observe the litany of "works" in the church?!

To use just common sense alone: If Baptism be the "forgiveness of all sins," as the Roman Catholic Church claims, then why not wait to be baptized at the hour of death?! One couldn't play it more safely!

Jesus sought and preached to simple people. Let not what the Roman Catholic Church disseminates as to understanding the Bible to be a "mystery" and "in need of interpretation" scare anyone!! IT IS NOT SO!

Again, I remind all, there are wonderful translations on which accuracy you can rely! I, myself to rely on either the King James Bible or the New American Standard Bible translations, as most desirable, and known to be most accurate.

The Bible is just one, and one only! It is the translations that are many, made for ease of reading, depending on the likes and dislikes of the employment of the language by the reader.

The NASB has a marvelous Study Bible, which is the one I use.
It literally transports you to the times and conditions in which Christ, Himself, lived!

Philippians 1:

2 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

3 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,

4 Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy,

5 For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now;

6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:


May God bless you who read this, and may He draw you near to Him!

Happy moments, praise God.
Difficult moments, seek God.
Quiet moments, worship God.
Painful moments, trust God.
Every moment, thank God.

In everything give thanks.
- 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Revelation 3:
(15) "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot.
(16) So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.
(17) Because you say, 'I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing'?and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked?
(18) I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.
(19) As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.
(20) Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

May we all feast at His table,
through all Eternity!
