OUT OF THE CHURCH POINT OF SALVATION

 Vatican

Very clearly we are experiencing the end of biblical times, which means for every Christian that Jesus Christ will soon return to Earth!

 

All signs and prophecies we show and we confirm!

 

In view of the strength and intensity of their achievements, it is clear that the time for the return of the Lord is near, even very close.

 

We can notice some Important dates related to the signs of the end times.

 

14 May 1948:

Date of creation of the State of Israel which was the date of the pardon granted by God to the Jewish people.

Since then, it is clear amplification signs and prophecies.

They perform at the sight of all, more and more strongly.

 

14 August 2005:

A huge sign in the heavens with the appearance in the sky of Florida a veritable army of UFOs have some formed in the sky for a long time a very large cross crucifixion

This sign, in retrospect, seems to be the announcement of the approach of the last week of Daniel and all the punishment that would follow.

 

.

And this video

.

 

29 September 2008: 

This date is the stock market crash in New York, with an index of -777.7, which would result in the general ruin which the world will not recover before the return of Jesus Christ.

I set this date as the beginning of the last week of Daniel signifying the start of the last seven years of man before the return of Jesus Christ.

 

The March 8, 1012  :

This is the date of the occurrence of the second sign in the heavens.Visibly larger than our planet Earth has remained connected to the Sun more than 80 hours black sphere until 11 March 2012.

 

 

This sign also incredible as the authentic is positioned three and half years after September 29, 2008.

It should be noted that biblically the last week of Daniel (seven years) was announced in the Bible as being divided into two parts of three and a half years each and the second part will be the period of the great tribulation.

 

February 28, 2013: 

Resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, who was replaced by Pope Francis, which says simply bishop of Rome.

Which corresponds to the prophecy of the popes as « Peter the Roman »

It is according to prophecy, will guide the church, before the return of Jesus Christ.

 

And the last date remains ahead:

Is that of the return of Jesus Christ on Earth I is between 14 and 15 September 2015,  during the Feast of Trumpets.

 

You may notice some important signs in my article

Also in this section

 

https://victorpicarra.wordpress.com/2011/11/27/jesus-christ-revient-bientot/

 

The rapture of the church must take him before that date in September 2015 and it is perhaps well for this year 2014. (I is the removal to 10 November 2014)

Accuracy:

I can not say it enough, « I am not a prophet and I could be wrong » but it is good to prepare and keep himself always ready spiritually for the removal and return of Jesus Christ.

 

See my article

 

https://victorpicarra.wordpress.com/2014/01/18/les-dates-de-lapocalypse-et-de-lenlevement-de-leglise-devoilees/

 

Earth about one billion people are Christians which is both much and little as to be saved in the Rapture of the Church, one must already be a Christian.

.

Six billion is already doomed!

 

Billion Christians can therefore claim to be saved and be part of the church of Jesus Christ to be removed before his return.

 

But then how do you explain this verse the apostle Luke.

.

« But the Son of man, when he cometh, shall he find faith on earth? » (Lk 18, 8)

 

You can not take what you want in the Bible and ignore what bothers us!

 

With this verse so we have a problem!

 

How can we be at the end of time, although this is obvious, and see how many Christians exceed Ames billion; while Luke wrote this verse on Faith questioning the return of Jesus Christ.

 

We know that nothing has been written in the Bible at random, so if the apostle Luke wrote this verse is that there is an important reason and even essential and primordial.

 

We can partly be explained by the fact that many Christians are not prepared to consider the return of Jesus Christ to our generation.

It is obvious that anyone can see by talking to friends about it.

 

Some Christians do not even believe in the possibility of the return of Jesus Christ Physics.

 

However, this is not enough to explain how you can spend a billion Christians to a lack of faith in such a short time?

 

Something more important must be the cause.

 

We have already recognized that each manages a little faith and the teaching of Jesus Christ to his lifestyle.

 

In two thousand years, our desire to want to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ has been eroded by our human weaknesses that we have brought this teaching to adapt to changing our lives and our society.

 

Our spiritual guides that are the vicars of the church, also over time added a little bit of everything and anything to this teaching (which is contrary to the teaching of Jesus Christ)

.

You might remember some massacres and witch hunts that have claimed thousands of lives in the name of God, of faith and of Jesus Christ. (Which is contrary to the teaching of Jesus Christ)

.

Thus gradually the teaching of Jesus Christ has been greatly distorted, ancient truths and outdated have been replaced by new and more suited to new lifestyles truths and all this without us actually took conscience. (Which is contrary to the teaching of Jesus Christ)

 

To arrive at the current situation, where many vicars among the dignitaries of the church and even the pope no longer follow and teach more strictly the teachings of Jesus Christ in particular openly making compromises with other religions. (Which is contrary to the teaching of Jesus Christ)

 

The Church (John Paul II) did she not teach that God and Jesus Christ is in every man, and that therefore every man is God and Jesus Christ.(Which is contrary to the teaching of Jesus Christ)

 

The Church (John Paul II) did she not teach that all religions lead to God. (Which is contrary to the teaching of Jesus Christ)

 

The Church is responsible to lead men to God by the teaching of Jesus Christ, and yet the church led by some lessons denatured many souls to Lucifer.

 

   Even from

The church did she not taught to pray the Dead!

 

Praying Saints « Dead » for special assistance in some areas!

« While the dead remain dead until the resurrection must occur for some time at the end of the return of Jesus Christ and to all others, the resurrection will occur at the last judgment! « 

Some Christians will even pray for deceased relatives to look after their families.

 

Other Christians surround themselves with images, statues and religious objects for divine protection.

 

Some vicars also sometimes bless everything and anything!

 

And then we understand that indeed for many Christians Faith is indeed very low down in the minds and hearts.

 

Unfortunately this explains better why the apostle Luke questioned the Faith « authentic » to the return of Jesus Christ.

 

While we are a billion Christians, but how many of us observe strictly the teachings of Jesus Christ ….

 

It’s time my beloved Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ to return to the true values ​​taught by Jesus Christ and especially the practice so that our names are not erased from the book of life.

 

In our lives

 

First

Love God with all our strength and with conviction

 

Next, Humility, Respect, Kindness, love, sharing, selflessness, compassion, forgiveness, understanding and kindness should lead your life .

 

In our Prayers

 

Prayer is the food of the soul.

It is therefore necessary to pray.

 

Unfortunately many Christians do not pray, or pray as prayer wheels.

 

Yet Jesus Christ taught us to pray.

.

Matthew 6

.

http://www.lirelabible.net/LSG/html_5/Matthieu_2.htm

 

Prayer is talking to God!

 

prier_dieu

 

We can talk with respect to Heavenly Father « God », as if we would talk to our earthly father.

We can ask what we want and what we need.

 

It is also important to know thank God everyday for all his kindness.

Including for the most insignificant.

 

We must understand that God gave us a sublime gift « Free Arbitrator »but this gift prevents God to intervene in our lives if we do not ask.

 

In my case, I can assure you that God is part of my daily life and my biggest fear is that God does not share my life.

 

It is good to know that in your prayers you can also ask personal questions to God and you will be surprised to have the answers that come to mind when asking questions.

 

Regarding prayers to the Blessed Virgin should not associate with prayers to the saints which are in my opinion should be avoided because only Jesus Christ is our Savior, our King, our Master and it is to him that return the merit and glory and that is Jesus Christ and anyone else that God has entrusted to us.

 

Prayers to the Blessed Virgin Mary are a very special case because there are very strong and powerful relationship between a mother and her son.

 

It is clear in the heart of every Christian that God allows the Blessed Virgin Mary to intercede with Jesus Christ, his son, for all mankind and to do everything it can to ensure that we come to Jesus Christ to be saved.

 

Apparitions and messages of the Blessed Virgin Mary are actions at key moments in history for our attention so that we are not moving away from our faith in the important choices for the life of society and the church .

 

The most important appearances was that of Fatima in Portugal.

THIRD SECRET OF FATIMA THE RETURN OF JESUS ​​CHRIST ON EARTH – Truths!

So for all those who regularly pray the Blessed Virgin, it is important to note that all prayers are preferably first go to God and to Jesus Christ and finally to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

 

If you pray the Blessed Virgin Mary, because you are ashamed to pray to God or Jesus Christ, then know that if you are ashamed of God and Jesus Christ, they will be ashamed of you.

 

Please pray to God. He knows that we are all sinners and we fall and again and again succumb because life is a daily struggle that each of us carries against satan.

 

We can not win thanks to our determination to overcome the strength of our will and the help we need to ask God

 

If you pray to God and if it seems that God does not hear your prayers;then ask yourself the question if you do well all that you can and should do to solve your problems and fight against Satan.

 

God help you if you ask him, but it will not help you if you ever help yourself!

 

Do not hesitate in your prayers go directly to God and be assured that Jesus Christ will intercede for you and will help you in everyday life by the Holy Spirit of God.

 

Jesus Christ has at its disposal a myriad of angels ready to help you.

But should you still dare to ask God for the help you need.

 

But it is good in these apocalyptic times to remember also that He ay two thousand years Jesus Christ, had angered the temple because of all the bad habits and all the evil men of the time.

 

They had over time distorted the true function of the temple.

 

From a place of prayer, the temple became a place of commerce and even worse, it became a landmark for robbers and thieves.

 

Matthew 21 verses 12-13-14

 

12 Jesus went into the temple of God. He drove out all who sold and bought in the temple; He overturned the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of those selling doves.

 

13 And he said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called a house of prayer. But ye have made it a den of thieves.

 

14 The blind and the lame came to him in the temple. And he healed them.

 

 

Nevertheless we see in verse 14 that although the temple has become a place unclean, Jesus Christ healed there Blind and sick.

 

On his return, Jesus Christ will unfortunately a finding that will be far more negative than there was there two thousand years.

 

First the church he entrusted to Peter and he wanted « a united and » broke up into many churches.

 

Saying all closer to the truth as each other!

 

It is known that some churches are more interested in men’s wallets and their souls.

 

Some churches have become so rich that it is indecent to see the misery of the world.

 

There is even some men who call themselves pastors or preachers who enrich and fatten on the misery of the poor.

 

The Vatican itself, has assets and huge fortunes around the world and its dignitaries often became Moguls.

among other sources:

https://www.cai.org/fr/etudes-bibliques/les-milliards-vatican

 

More misery in the world is great and these « moguls » of all churches, enrich and fatten.

 

Of course the world is still furrowed missionaries that these senior vicars of all churches send a bible in his hand without serious way and they evangelize people to the grace of God.

 

Unlike all these high dignitaries vicars of churches, missionaries them deserve our respect and gratitude.

You should know that many of these missionaries often succumb unfortunately in the shade and in the general indifference under torture in the hands of Islamists and jihadists  who are « Legionaries of satan. »

 

A word for Muslims

jihadists-Iraqi-

 

Move away from the Islamists  and jihadists   that guide you to Lucifer making you believe that they guide you to God.

 

Your salvation is in Jesus Christ!

 

We also my beloved brothers and sisters need to see the beam we have in the eyes.

 

Stop all the pagan rites that have invaded the church and return to true Christian values.

 

What should count in our lives, it is not so much what we do but why and how we do it.

 

Jesus Christ loves us, but we love it and we prove him we?

 

Ask my question!

 

Despite his love for us, Jesus Christ, on his return will judge all men and all nations.

 

It will be too late to repent and want to straighten his life.

 

There will be shouting, weeping and gnashing of teeth of all late!

 

It is now time to act and straighten our lives.

O

O O

O

It is essential to return to the Catholic Church

(But not that of Vatican II)

 

Outside the church point of Hi!

O

O O

O

 

The Catholic Church is the church that our Lord Jesus Christ entrusted to Peter and successor successor, the Church was entrusted to François our current Pope.

 

Although Pope Francis did not entirely recognize as Pope but rather as a simple Bishop of Rome and despite all the legitimate criticisms that can make him, it is still the legal representative of the Church in anticipation of the return of Jesus Christ.

 

This will in Jesus Christ will soon return load to relieve him of his position as spiritual leader of the church.

 

On his return, Jesus Christ, after having considered all men and all nations shall reign with his church.

.

Do you want to be part of the Church of Jesus Christ,

 

If yes, then do you baptize, ask God for forgiveness for all your sins, straighten your life, ask Jesus Christ to be your personal savior and accept you into his church.

 

And especially love and respect God and put into practice all the Christian values ​​taught by Jesus Christ.

 

 »  Humility, Respect, Kindness, love, sharing, selflessness, compassion, forgiveness, understanding and kindness. « 

 

Hopeful note:

 

Verse 14 of chapter 21 of the Gospel according to Matthew:

14 The blind and the lame came to him in the temple. And he healed them.

 

Leaves in my opinion a glimmer of hope for those who are not Christians by blindness and ignorance and those who are baptized but who have followed by blindness and ignorance of false doctrines.

 

I believe they can be saved and admitted to the church after the abduction, if they come to Jesus asking to be healed and saved, after his return with the heavenly Jerusalem.

 

I conclude this article with a text that I received comment from the article:

Conspiracy
Crucial information that ALL Catholic should know

.
Many Catholics pray fervently for the Virgin Mary, believing she is the mediator who intercedes on their behalf with the Father:
« Therefore the Blessed Virgin is invoked in the Church under the titles of Advocate, Helper, helping, and Mediatrix. « Item # 969, p. 255
Four specific titles are attributed to Mary. She fulfills these roles? So look at each of them:

Lawyer

 
Belief in Mary lawyer with the Father is another tradition, unsupported by Scripture. In addition, the Bible defies Catholic doctrine stating that Jesus, not Mary, is the only lawyer:
« … And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. « 1 John 2:1
Help
This is still a human tradition.

The Bible does not qualify anyone Helper, not even Marie

Benefactress
Once again, the Bible contradicts Catholicism by declaring that Jesus, not Mary, is the only being ‘supernatural’ helping:
« Behold, God is my helper … » Psalm 54.4 « So it is with confidence that we can say: The Lord is my helper, I will not fear; What can man do to me? « Hebrews 13.6
« Many are the afflictions the righteous: but the LORD delivereth. »Psalm 34.19
Nowhere in the Word of God Mary is described as helping …

Mediatrix

. The Bible never rises to the position of Marie mediator, but it presents Jesus as the only mediator: « For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, « 1 Timothy 2:5″And this is why he [Christ] is the mediator of a new covenant … » Hebrews 9.15

 


Intercessor

The ombudsman and advocate is to intercede for others. Catholic tradition assigns this responsibility to Mary, while the Word of God is the Lord Jesus Christ as the only intercessor:
« For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made by human hand … but he entered heaven itself, now to appear for us before the face of God. »Hebrews 9.24
« This is also why it can save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. « Hebrews 7:25
Scripture can not be clearer as to the identity of the true intercessor:
« Who will condemn? Christ died; well, he is risen, he is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us! « Romans 8:34
« And he who searches the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because it is according to God he maketh intercession for the saints. »Romans 8:27
The Bible reveals that anyone accessing the Father is through the Son:
« For through him [Jesus] we have each other access to the Father by one Spirit. « Ephesians 2.18
« According to the eternal purpose which he has implemented through Jesus Christ our Lord, in whom we, by faith in him, freedom of approach God with confidence. « Ephesians 3.11-12
Mary is never mentioned as an intercessor.
Jesus lowered again
The Bible is very clear. Jesus is the only lawyer, helping mediator and intercessor with the Father. Yet the Catholic tradition steals four titles and attributes to Mary … Why?
Why Is Jesus lowered at every opportunity?

 

Why Catholicism is he determined to remove all the attributes to Jesus that the Bible gives to give to someone else?
If Mary must be high, why some characters in the Bible as the apostle Paul they said:

. « Because I did not have the thought of you know anything other than Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. « 1 Corinthians 2:2
Conclusion
Now you know the positions of the Bible and Catholic tradition.

Will you reject the Word of God and give glory to Mary?

Or you will reject the traditions of men and you give glory to Jesus Christ?
« But now hath he obtained a ministry, inasmuch as he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises. »Hebrews 8.6
Chapter 20 – Mary: Recipient of Prayers
Catholic doctrine requires its faithful they pray the Virgin Mary:
« By asking Mary to pray for us, we acknowledge ourselves to be poor sinners and we address the <>, the

Holy … all at the hour of our visit she welcome us as our mother to lead us to her Son Jesus in Paradise « Item # 2677, p. 661
It is essential that you know if these claims come from God or merely human tradition. Let each of them:

 

Ask Mary to pray for us: a human tradition, unknown in the Bible.
Mother of mercy, another tradition.
holy Any: a human tradition.

 

We have already shown that God is the only « all holy »

 

Marie welcomes us to our death: a human tradition, not taught in the Bible.

 

Mary leads us to Jesus, another tradition, unknown in the Word of God.

 

Understand, Catholic friend, God never said any of these things. These are all traditions invented by Catholic leaders of the past:
« Since the earliest times the Blessed Virgin is honored under the title of <>; the faithful take refuge under his protection, begging in all their dangers and needs … « Item # 971, p. 256
The fact that the faithful should pray to Mary in times of trouble is another tradition « concocted » by Catholic leaders of the past to today and confirmed Catholics.

 

Jesus never, nor anyone else in the Bible, do not ask the people to pray to Mary.
Who should we pray?

. Bible clearly contradicts the catechism in educating the people to turn to God only:
« Call to me [God speaks to his people], and I will answer you; I shew thee great things, hidden things that you do not know. « Jeremiah 33.3
« And call upon me [God speaks to his people] in the day of trouble; I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me. « Psalm 50.15

. When hard times come, call on God, not Mary:
« Lord, give ear to my prayer, listen to the voice of my supplications!

 

I invoke thee in the day of my distress, for thou wilt answer me. « Psalm 86.6-7

. « He shall call upon me, [God speaks to his people] and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. »Psalm 91.15

. Hundreds of verses teach us to call on God when difficulties arise in our lives. Not a single verse encourages us to pray to Mary:

. « The salvation of the righteous is of the LORD; He is their stronghold in time of trouble. « Psalm 37.39

. « Lord, have mercy on us! We hope in thee. Be our arm every morning, our salvation in time of distress « Isaiah 33.2
« … Blessed is he who considers the poor! The day of trouble the Lord delivers him « Psalm 41.1
Should you put your spell Marie?
« Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous. « Psalm 55.22
King David prayed all day … to God:
« At night, in the morning, and at noon, I sigh and I moaned, and he shall hear my voice. « Psalm 55.17
The Psalmist proclaims:

. « The LORD is near to all who call upon him, to all who call upon him in truth « Psalm 145.18
In the New Testament we read:
« Do not worry about anything; but in everything, present your requests to God by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving. « Philippians 4:6
Who do you pray?
The Word of God says to pray to God. Catholicism encouraged to pray to Mary. Once again, we ask why the catechism retrograde Jesus and Mary student.

 

It seems that the Catholic Church does not want his followers « disturb » Jesus in any subject.

 


Yet Jesus we launch this invitation:

 
« Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. « Matthew 11:28
Either the Bible is wrong, or Catholicism keeps you away from one who wants and is ready to satisfy all your needs.
Conclusion
This is another crucial decision you should take. You follow the Catholic traditions and human and pray you Marie?

. Or would you prefer to obey the Scriptures and direct your prayers to God?
« And I will call upon God, and the Lord will save me. « Psalm 55.16

 

Chapter 21 – Mary Queen of the Universe
Catholicism claims that the death of Mary, the Lord took in heaven and gave him the title of « Queen of the Universe »
« Finally the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the course of her earthly life, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen of the Universe « Item # 966, p. 254

. Again, Catholic doctrine and the Word of God collide.

 

Not only Scripture nowhere teaches such a doctrine, but it condemns.

 

44.9 In Jeremiah we read that the worship of a false goddess named « Queen of Heaven » infuriated God
« The children gather wood, the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and pour out drink offerings to other gods, to provoke me to anger. « Jeremiah 7.18

. Why people made ​​it worships a false goddess named Queen of Heaven? It was a human tradition handed down to them:
« But we will … burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to her libations, as we have done, we and our fathers, our kings and our princes … » Jeremiah 44.17
Catholicism would have it transmitted the same pagan ritual that infuriates God?
Pagan religions
Without going beyond the goals of this book, many curious Catholics would be surprised by the study of many false religions that worship a « Queen of Heaven. »

 

These facts are established, the Catholic insistence to give Marie a title so often used to false goddesses should think.
Who should be exalted?

. Though Catholicism insists on the exaltation of Mary, the Bible exalts God Almighty: « Student-you to the heavens, O God! Let your glory be over all the earth! « Psalm 57.5

« … Thee, O LORD, is the kingdom, and thou art exalted as head above all! « 1 Chronicles 29:11
« … The God of my salvation be exalted, » Psalm 18.46
« Arise, O Lord, with all your might! … « Psalm 21:13
« Be still and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. « Psalm 46:10
« God … For the shields of the earth: he is greatly exalted. « Psalm 47.9
« The Lord is high, because he lives above … » Isaiah 33.5

.

God receives glory through Jesus Christ

. The Bible says that God receives glory through Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is THE important person in the Bible:

 

 

In the New Testament, the name « Jesus » appears 943 times.
The name « Christ » 553 times and the words « Lord Jesus » 115 times.

. the first four books of the New Testament concerning the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus.

The rest of the New Testament revolves around his person.

 

Mary, meanwhile, appears a handful of times in the Word of God, and she is never named queen of anything:
« Therefore God also has highly exalted him [Jesus], and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under earth, « Philippians 2:9-10

 

« … The Lamb that was slain [Jesus] is worthy to receive power, wealth, wisdom, strength, honor, glory, and praise. « Apocalypse 5.12
Who should receive the glory? God … through Jesus Christ:

. « … in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen! « 1 Peter 4.11

. « God raised [Jesus] by his right hand as Prince and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins. « Acts 5.31

. I’m sure you see the same pattern break through the chapters.

 

While the Bible exhorts us to exalt Jesus Christ, Catholicism is determined to undermine Jesus and Mary raise.

 

Why Jesus who sacrificed His life and suffered cruel torture of the cross, He is discarded and replaced by a mere mortal?
Conclusion
On the one hand, Catholicism insists that the Lord has elevated Mary to the rank of « Queen of the Universe. »

 

On the other hand, the Bible teaches us to worship the « Queen of Heaven » provokes the wrath of God.

 

In whom you place your trust? In human tradition or in the Word of God?
« Wherefore God [Jesus] exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name » Philippians 2.9

 

Chapter 22 – The Mass
If we may believe the catechism, whenever Mass is celebrated, the work of Christ on the cross is made present and the work of redemption is accomplished:
« 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 offered in an unbloody manner. »Item # 1367, p. 357

. « When the Church celebrates the Eucharist, she commemorates Christ’s Passover, and it becomes this:

.

the sacrifice Christ offered once for all on the cross remains ever present: <> « Item # 1364, p. 356

However, the Bible reveals that the work of redemption was accomplished once for all when Jesus died on the cross:
« … He appeared once to put away sin by his sacrifice. « Hebrews 9.26
« It is by virtue of this will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. « Hebrews 10.10
When Jesus shed His blood, this single act has purchased eternal life for all those who place their faith and trust only in Christ.
« And he entered once for all into the Holy Place, taking not the blood of goats and calves but his own blood, having obtained eternal redemption. « Hebrews 9.12
The Bible insists on the fact that this sacrifice should not be renewed daily:
« It suited us, indeed, to have a priest like him [Jesus], holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens, who does not need, like those high priests, to offer sacrifices daily, first for his own sins and then for the people’s: for this he did once for all when he offered himself. « Hebrews 7.27

. Nevertheless, the catechism is adamant about this:
« In fact, whenever there is celebrated this mystery, <>. »Item # 1405, p. 368

. Yet the Bible says that Christ’s death is an event held once:

 

« So Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins … » Hebrews 9:28

 

« Him, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God » Hebrews 10.12

 

Jesus has done all that is necessary for the salvation of mankind when He died on the cross.

 

No additional work is not (and never was) required.
Which is highlighted?
When the Catechism claims that the Catholic Church played a role in the redemptive work of Christ, it robs Him the glory that is yet only to earn for the work accomplished at Calvary.
According to the Word of God, Christ has done it all, once and for all.

His death was an act of God, the most wonderful sacrifice that has ever occurred. It was held only once, and will never be repeated.Nevertheless, the catechism still insist
« The sacrifice of Christ and the sacrifice of the Eucharist are one single sacrifice. »Item # 1367, p.357

With all possible gentleness, it must be said that this statement is a sacrilege.

Suggest a priest, observing a religious ritual, taking part in the death that Jesus experienced is blasphemy.
Associate rituals of the Catholic church in the work of Christ on the cross is ridiculous. The Catholic church has no role in the work that led to the redemption and it is liable.

. Again, Catholicism tries to force Christ to share His glory with the Catholic Church, while the Bible shows that Jesus alone deserves the glory.

 

Conclusion
Where do you place your trust? In the Word of God … or in the tradition and teachings of the Catholic Church?
« For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made ​​alive by the Spirit, » 1 Peter 3:18
23 Chapître – Purgatory

 
Catholicism teaches that after death, some people are sent to a place called purgatory for a complete purification before entering heaven:
« Those who die in the grace and friendship of God, but still imperfectly purified, are indeed assured of their eternal salvation, but after death they undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven. »Item # 1030, p. 270
« The Church calls Purgatory to this final purification of the elect … » Item # 1031, p. 270
This important doctrine-it comes from God, or is it another tradition of men?

 

Here is an answer directly from the catechism:

. »The Church formulated her doctrine of faith on Purgatory especially at the Councils of Florence and Trent. »Item # 1031, p. 270

. Is it unreasonable to ask where stakeholders have drawn their information about life after death, to be able to make such a doctrine?
Roman Catholic dear friend, if you pray for loved ones that you believe in purgatory, you must know that it is not God who told you where they were … it is a religious group that has decreed:
« … One among his [Jesus’] disciples continue their pilgrimage on earth;others, who have completed their life, yet purify; still others are in glory … « Item # 954, p. 251
If it is to suffer, it is not a gift!
This doctrine is even more disturbing that the Bible speaks absolutely never such a place.

 

Moreover, it never teaches that purification after death is necessary to gain salvation. On the contrary, the Bible says that salvation is a free gift:
« For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. « Romans 6:23
« But it is not the free gift as the offense; For if through the offense of one [Adam] there are many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, they abounded for many. « Romans 5.15
An honest and loving God with eternal life as a free gift, you condemn He suffered for it, and He lie about it in His Word?
« For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith. And that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. « Ephesians 2.8

. If you believe the Bible, then there is no need for further purification for those who die in Christ. They have already been justified by Jesus:

. « Now that we are justified by his blood [of Jesus] we shall be saved by him from the wrath. « Romans 5.9

. « and are justified freely [Christians] by his grace [Jesus], through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. « Romans 3:24
The Apostle Paul emphasizes the same point:
« And this is what you were some of you. But you were washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ … « 1 Corinthians 6:11

. True Christians are already purified because Jesus took away all their sins on the cross:
« … Now, at the end of the world hath he appeared once to put away sin by his sacrifice. « Hebrews 9.26

. God does not ask His children to suffer for their salvation because they have been redeemed:

. « For ye are bought with a price. Therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. « 1 Corinthians 6.20
At what price? The price of the blood of Jesus Christ:
« … The church of God which He [Jesus] has purchased with his own blood. « Acts 20:28
Conclusion
The Bible is very clear about this.
The side of the Catholic Church, look what was the consequence of the doctrine of purgatory: fortunes were given to her for her to say masses and prayers for the dead.
Now I ask you a question: Why the Catholic Church she established this doctrine?
Now, at least, you know that the doctrine of purgatory was designed in the spirit of mere mortals.
« There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus. « Romans 8:1
Chapter 24 – Praying saints
Catechism encourages the faithful to pray those who, through their good works are declared « saints » by the church.

. « The witnesses who have preceded us into the kingdom, especially those whom the Church recognizes as » saints « , share in the living tradition of prayer by the example of their lives, the transmission of their writings, and their prayer today.

 

They contemplate God, praise him and constantly care for those whom they have left on earth.

 

By entering <> of their Master, they were <> Their intercession is their most exalted service to God’s plan.

 

We can and should ask them to intercede for us and for the world.»Item # 2683, p. 662

. « intercession of the saints; <> « Item # 956, p. 252

. We must begin by defining the word <>.

 

According to Catholicism, is a member of a small group of elected officials who, by their good works during their lifetime, were appointed after their death:

. « By canonizing some of the faithful, that is to say, by solemnly proclaiming that they practiced true heroic virtue and lived in fidelity to God’s grace, the Church recognizes the power of the Spirit of holiness which is in it and it sustains the hope of believers by giving them as models and intercessors. « Item # 828, p. 222
According to the Scriptures, however, anyone is born again through faith in Christ is a saint. Paul wrote to all the saints (Christians) Philippe:
« Paul and Timothy, servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are Philippe » Philippians 1:1

 

Many other verses express the same truth:
« To me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ » Ephesians 3.8

. « Beloved, I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I felt compelled to do to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once delivered to the saints for all. »Jude 1.3

. « And he gave some as apostles, others as prophets, others as evangelists, others as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ . »Ephesians 4:11-12

. (see also Acts 9.13, 9.32, 9.41, 26.10, Romans 8.27, 12.13, 15.25, 15.26, 15.31, 16.2, 16.5, 6.1 1 Corinthians 2 Corinthians 1.1, Ephesians 1.1 … and dozens of other references)
Why is this doctrine?

 

To summarize, the Catholic Church has rejected the scriptural definition of a saint and has designed a new one.

 

She then asked the faithful to pray his « saints. »

 

But why pray to anyone other than the God of the universe, which is in heaven, attentive to our prayers and willing to answer?
The Saints Are intercessors?
These « saints » are not supposed to stop « to intercede for us with the Father » … But we have already seen that Jesus is the only intercessor (see Chapter 19).

 

Suggest that it could be otherwise only a matter of human tradition.

 

Here is another excerpt from the Catechism on the saints:

. « For just as the communion between Christians of the earth we approach closer to Christ, and the community with the saints joins us to Christ … » Item # 957, p. 252

 

According to the Catholic church, pray to the saints closer followers of Christ. Unfortunately, you will not find this doctrine nowhere in Scripture.

 

This is just another tradition of men that neither Jesus nor the Bible never taught.

 

In fact, this communion with dead looks suspiciously like necromancy, practical severely condemned by the Word of God (see Deuteronomy 18.10-12).

Conclusion

 

The question you must answer is:

 

Why the Catholic Church she prefers that you address your prayers to the dead rather than the living God, almighty and ready to respond?
Do keep in mind that if these traditions are false, your prayers to « saints » are not worth more than idle gossip.

 

Instead, if you pray to God, you can count on a wonderful biblical promises:

. « Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace to obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. « Hebrews 4:16
Chapter 25 – Praying for the dead

 
Living can they help the dead by praying for them? According to Catholic doctrine, they can indeed:
« Communion with the dead. <>

 

Our prayer for them is capable not only help them but also of making their intercession for us. « Item # 958, p. 252-253
In this paper, we derive three assertions contrary to the Bible. Let’s examine them:

 

1. The thought of praying for the dead … is a holy and pious thought.

. According to the Word of God is neither saint nor pious to pray for the dead.

 

Christians are encouraged to pray for the living, but the Bible does not identify any examples of true Christian prayer for the dead.

It is still a human tradition.

 

2. Thought to pray for the dead that they may be loosed from their sins …
Here is a built on a tradition … tradition. Scripture never let suggest that.

 

As we have seen, must be freed from his sins before his death.
3. Our prayer for them is capable not only help them but also of making their intercession for us
Such a construction game where you stack blocks, this tradition is based on other human traditions.

 

She has absolutely no biblical basis.

 

We achieve « summits » to learn that our prayer is supposed to be capable of:
« making their intercession for us »
The question that immediately comes to lips is: Why do we need other intercessions for ourselves?

 

Is it not enough to have the intercession of God the Son?

 

The Creator of the universe he needs help men and women to persuade God the Father?

 

What contemptuous attitude towards Jesus Christ!

 

This Catholic doctrine presents the Lord as a weak, unable to persuade his Father without the help of prayer for the dead!

 

This is not how Jesus is presented in the Bible:

. « And Jesus approached them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and on earth. « Matthew 28:18 Here is another portrait of Jesus Christ:

. « [God] wrought in Christ, raising him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and all authority, and power, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the age to come.

 

He put all things under his feet, and gave Him to be head over everything for the church, which is His body, the fullness of him who fills all in all. « Ephesians 1.20-22

. How different the picture in fact the Catholic Church!

. Dear Catholic friend, Jesus Christ did not need anyone to act!

 

It is quite capable to intercede for us:

. « This is also why he [Jesus] can save completely those who come to God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. »Hebrews 7:25

. Before praying for a deceased person who is dear to you, understand that this is a human invention.

 

God will ever ask you to pray for the dead, and never promised any more than that would be good.
Catholic Young, I always thought these rules were in one way or another, God .

 

But this is wrong!

 

Read the Bible and see for yourself. The Catechism teaches a human tradition, not the laws of God.

the same pattern

. Did you notice, it is certain that Jesus is again reduced.

 

His position as the only divine intercessor at the right hand of God, Jesus is integrated into the crowd of people and relegated to the role of intercessor among others.

. Why the Catholic religion she strives to diminish Jesus Christ?


Conclusion

. Again, you are placed before important decisions:

Will you continue to pray for the dead, knowing that it is a human tradition and not a command from God?
You will hang up a doctrine that undermines the Lord Jesus Christ that is put forward the tradition of the church?
Will you reject, in full knowledge of the Word of God to follow the human tradition?

 

You decide

 

Thinking, ponder these words of Jesus:

. « This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.In vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. « Matthew 15:9

Chapître 26 – Statues

 
The Catechism asks all Catholics « worship » statues and images of Christ, Mary, etc..

. « the holy images present in our churches and in our homes, are intended to awaken and nourish our faith in the mystery of Christ.

Through the icon of Christ and his work of salvation, it is he whom we adore.

 

Through sacred images of the holy Mother of God, angels and saints, we venerate the persons represented. »Item # 1192, p. 316
[It is useful to give some definitions taken from Webster *:

 

veneration: Religious worship is respect and fear.
Synonyms: worship, devotion

 

worship: Consider with due respect to gods, sacred things.
Synonyms: love, honor, revere]

 

Whatever these statues are supposed to do or represent, one thing is certain – they transgress God’s decrees.

 

Indeed, the second of the Ten Commandments states:

. « You shall not make any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth, which are lower than in the water under the earth. « Exodus 20.4

. God, through His Word, commands again:

. « Thou shalt not set thee statues, which are averse to the Lord your God. « Deuteronomy 16:22
The Bible draws the conclusion that those who have or have made statues are corrupt:

. « Since you saw no form on the day that the LORD spake unto you out of the fire at Horeb, please carefully over your souls, lest ye corrupt yourselves, and you do not do you a graven image, representation of any idol, the figure of a man or a woman … « Deuteronomy 4:15-16
And … again …:
« Take care of you, so … not to make you a carved representation of any image, which the LORD thy God hath forbidden thee. …

 

When thou shalt beget children, and children’s children, and ye shall have remained long in the land, if you corrupt, if you make a graven image, representations of anything, if you do what is evil the eyes of the LORD your God, to irritate, … « Deuteronomy 4:23-25

. the Word of God expressly forbids the people to bow before statues.Yet it is common to see the faithful make this gesture in Catholic churches.

. When you see the Pope bow before a statue of Mary, consider this verse of Scripture: « Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above …

 

You shall not bow down thyself to them, « Exodus 20.5
In the New Testament, the apostle Paul explains why God is so adamant about idols:
« What am I?

 

Meat sacrificed to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything?

 

I say that we sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God; or I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. « 1 Corinthians 10.19-20

. Behind every idol is a demon, and God does not want us to venerate demons. It is therefore not surprising that God forbids idols:

. « the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them: Be holy, for I am holy, the Lord your God.

 

I am the LORD your God.

 

Do not turn to idols, nor make you develop molten gods. « Leviticus 19.4

God hates idolatry:

. « Now, what I wrote is not having relations with someone who is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater or a slanderer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner, not not even to eat with such a person. »1 Corinthians 5:11 God says that no idolater will enter the Kingdom of Heaven:

. « For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

 

Let no man deceive you with vain words; for it is because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the son of the rebellion. »Ephesians 5.5-6

. Catholic church you does not appeal on this issue?
Origin of the doctrine

 

 

Catholicism does not even try to claim that this doctrine is of God:

. « Following the divinely inspired teaching of our holy Fathers and the tradition of the Catholic Church, we know that it is the tradition of the Holy Spirit dwelling in her, we define with certainty and precision that the venerable and holy images, as the figure of the precious and life-giving cross, whether painted, tiled or some other suitable material shall be placed in the holy churches of God, utensils and vestments, walls and tables, homes and roads, both the image of our Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ, as our Lady, the most pure and holy Mother of God, the holy angels, all holy and righteous.

 

»Item # 1161, p. 309
This doctrine is therefore the « Fathers » and the « tradition of the Catholic Church ».

 

And we try to make you believe that these « Fathers » were « divinely inspired » to violate the Word of God! Can you accept it?
The psalmist tells us further on the subject:
« The idols of the nations are silver and gold, they are the work of men’s hands.

 

They have mouths and speak not: they have eyes and see not, they have ears and hear not, they have no breath in their mouths. They like them, those who make them, all who trust in them. « Psalm 135.15-18

. In other words, as the idols are deaf and dumb, and those who trust in themselves are deprived of their ability to understand.

. This is the warning of a loving God and full of compassion.Conclusion

 

The Catholic Church claims that the idols « stimulate prayer » (see Article # 1162, p. 309) and we « reveal man <> » (see Article # 1161, p. 308) … but God clearly prohibits devotion.
Who will you believe?
« You will not make you no idols, neither rear you up you carved statue or picture, and you place in your country any figured stone, to bow down unto it; for I am the LORD your God. « Leviticus 26.1

. « This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.In vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

 

You leave the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men. »Mark 7.6-8

 

Warning!

 

We by no means consider the Petit Robert as a work inspired! It is simply a reference to the understanding of the French language …

 


Chapter 27 – Confirmation

 
Leaving aside the fact that confirmation is one of the sacraments necessary for salvation, it has, according to the Catechism, other benefits:

. « Confirmation perfects baptismal grace; it is the sacrament which gives the Holy Spirit in order to root us more deeply in the divine filiation, incorporate us more firmly into Christ, strengthen our bond more united with the Church. »Item # 1316, p. 344

. Thus the Catholic Confirmation incorporates more firmly to Christ.Unfortunately, the Bible does not teach this doctrine.

According to the Word of God, or you are in Christ, or you’re not. It is nowhere taught that it « may be incorporated more firmly to Christ »:

. « if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature. Old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. « 2 Corinthians 5:17

. Once you are born into the family of God, nothing and nobody can remove:

. « For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature be able to separate us from the love of God in Jesus Christ our Lord. « Romans 8:38-39

. A child of God has no need to be incorporated « more firmly to Christ »:

. « There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus. « Romans 8:1

. « But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. « Ephesians 2.13
Spiritual footprint?

 
Another benefit would be that of Confirmation:

. « Confirmation, like Baptism, imprints on the soul of a Christian spiritual mark or indelible character … » Item # 1317, p. 344

. You can browse through all your Bible, you will read nothing about how to print any sign spiritual in the Christian soul.

 

The Catechism tells us why:

. « Laying on of hands is rightly recognized by the Catholic tradition as the origin of Confirmation … » Item # 1288, p. 337-338

. Confirmation does not exist in the Bible because it is a human tradition … a tradition for a lifetime, to perform until the last moments of the life of a Catholic:

. « If a Christian is in danger of death, any priest should give him Confirmation.

 

Indeed, the Church desires that none of his children, even very small, so does this world without having been perfected by the Holy Spirit with the gift of the fullness of Christ. »Item # 1317, p. 344

 

The true purpose of the Confirmation

 
The concrete result of this practice is that it connects even more faithful in relationships with the Catholic Church.

Surprisingly, the Catechism admits very willingly:

. «  » … through the sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized link with the Catholic Church is made ​​more perfect … « Item # 1285, p. 337

. Why alienate the rules of the Catholic Church when Jesus came precisely we release such allowances? « So if the Son sets you free, you shall be free indeed. « John 8:36

. « It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Therefore keep standing firm and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. »Galatians 5:1

Conclusion

. Catholic tradition, invented by men, says that Confirmation is necessary for salvation:

. « … the reception of this sacrament is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. »Item # 1285, p. 337

. the Word of God, for its part, clearly denies this assertion.

In which you believe? The Word of God or the commandments of men?

. « This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.In vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. « Matthew 15:9

Chapître 28 – The confession of sins to a priest

. Regarding the forgiveness of sins, two questionable doctrines must be examined.

 

The first states that all sins must be confessed to a priest:

. « Whoever desires to obtain reconciliation with God and with the Church, must confess to a priest all the unconfessed grave sins he has not confessed and he remembers after having carefully examined his conscience. Without itself being necessary, confession of venial sins is nevertheless strongly recommended by the Church « Item # 1493, p.388

. « Confession to a priest is an essential part of the sacrament of Penance » Item # 1456, p. 379

. « It is called the sacrament of confession as confession, confession of sins to a priest is an essential element of this sacrament. »Item # 1424, p. 371

. Catholicism asks the faithful to confess their sins to a man, but the Bible tells us that those who are born into the family of God can come directly to the throne of God to receive forgiveness of sins:

. « I made ​​you my sin, I did not hide my iniquity; I said I will confess my transgressions to the Lord! And you forgave the iniquity of my sin « Psalm 32.5

 

« If we confess our sins, he [God] is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. « 1 John 1:9

. David confessed his sins to God when he prayed:

. « Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.For I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. »Psalm 51.2-3

. Here’s why true Christians have access to God’s throne:

. « Therefore, brothers, since we have, through the blood of Jesus, a free entry into the sanctuary by the new and living way opened for us through the veil, that is to say, of his flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience … « Hebrews 10:19

. Through the righteous blood shed by Jesus on the cross, we have the opportunity to go directly we turn to God for forgiveness of our sins.

Example « first pope »

 
In the book of Acts, a man named Simon came to that which claims to be the first pope, Peter, wishing to acquire the power of the Holy Spirit.

. Confessing to him without further ado?

 

No!

 

Peter advised him to repent and confess his sins to God and ask God to forgive him (see Acts 8.18-22).
Priests can they forgive sins?

. The second questionable doctrine suggests that Catholic priests have the power to forgive sins

. « Only priests who have received the authority of the Church the power to absolve can forgive sins in the name of Christ. »Item # 1495, p. 389 (see Article # 1448, p. 377)

. Again, the Catholic doctrine opposes the Word of God:

. « Who can forgive sins, but God alone? « Marc 2.7

 

« The news that we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and there is no darkness in him. […]

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. « 1 John 1.5,9

. Catholicism teaches that the priest is a mediator between God and men (Article # 1456, p. 380, speaks in fact of delivery of sin through the priest).

 

However, the Bible recognizes only one mediator:

. « For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, Christ Jesus … » 1 Timothy 2:5

. Again, the Catechism admits that it is not the commandments of God, but human traditions: « The Fathers of the Church present this sacrament as <> » Item # 1446, p. 377

 

More bonds

 

« According to the commandment of the Church, <>» Item # 1457, p.380

. Yet another duty to the Church. The church fathers created this tradition with the avowed aim of strengthening their hold on the Catholic faithful. sneaky And what weapon used against Catholics around the world!

 

In essence, if a faithful left the church, he can no longer obtain the forgiveness of sins … and can not longer go to heaven!

. Remember! None of these doctrines comes from God! They are all outputs of the human imagination.
May God open your eyes spiritually and gives you a full understanding of reality, so that you can understand the extent of the influence that religion has on you.

. God shows you that you do not need to remain a captive religion longer. Jesus wants to free you.
Conclusion

 
Millions of Catholics throng the confessionals, convinced that the priest has the power to forgive sins.

. And you? Where will you go for the forgiveness of your sins?

 

Will you consult a priest, as a sinner you, as you request the Catholic Church?

. Where will you choose God the merciful, as the Bible teaches?

. « Song of degrees. The bottom of the abyss I cry, O LORD

Lord, hear my voice!

 

Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications!

 

If you kept the memory of iniquities, Lord, Lord, who could stand?

 

But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared. « Psalm 130.1-4


Chapter 29 – Indulgences

With indulgences, or the sins of the living Catholic Purgatory could be forgiven:

 

« Through indulgences the faithful can obtain for themselves and also for the souls in Purgatory, the remission of temporal punishments resulting from sin. »Item # 1498, p. 389

. following definition of indulgences, as indicated by the catechism:

. « An indulgence is a remission before God of the temporal punishment due to sins whose guilt has already been forgiven, which the faithful Christian is duly disposed gains under certain prescribed conditions through the action of the Church which, as as the minister of redemption, dispenses and applies with authority the treasury of the satisfactions of Christ and the saints. »Item # 1471, p. 384

. Here we are before a very convoluted definition!

 

It would take a lot to get develop our presentation to explain the whole mechanism of indulgences.

 

Let’s just say that it is a complex system based on good works, and that is entirely invented by men. We can not find a word in the Word of God.
Categories of sins?

 
« To understand this doctrine and practice of the Church must see that sin has a double consequence. `

 

Grave sin deprives us of communion with God and therefore makes us incapable of eternal life, the privation of which is called

 

On the other hand every sin, even venial, entails an unhealthy attachment to creatures, which must be purified either here on earth, or after death in the state called Purgatory. »Item # 1472, p. 384

. Yet, the Bible constantly emphasizes the fact that all sins have the same result:

. « For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. « Romans 6:23

. « Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin when it is finished, bringeth forth death. « Jacques 1.15 Sin always produces the same result: death.

The fact that we consider them as « minor » changes nothing.

 

Catholic leaders teach their followers to be forgiven of sins through indulgences, while Christ has already paid the price for all sins

. « I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures » 1 Corinthians 15.3

. Yes, God wants His children to do good works!

 

But these good works are the result of hi … They are never the cause!Paul teaches:
« For by grace are ye saved, through faith. And that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.

 

It is not by works, lest anyone should boast.

 

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. « Ephesians 2:8-10

. [Being « created in Christ Jesus » simply means « be saved »]

. After a man has been saved by grace, He will do good works.

 

Good works are never required to attain salvation.

 

They are not over for the forgiveness of sins after salvation.

. Live can they help the dead?

. Catholicism teaches that indulgences help those who are already dead: « Since the faithful departed being purified are also members of the same communion of saints, we can help each other in obtaining indulgences for them, so that they are paid the temporal punishments due for their sins. »Item # 1479, p. 386

. Here is another human doctrine. You will find it ever taught anywhere in the Word of God.

 

As we have already mentioned, it is possible to be forgiven of our sins during the time of our lives.

 


Three themes

 
In this doctrine of indulgences, three recurring themes are found:

  1. A divine attribute of Jesus is minimized. The Bible says that only the work of Jesus Christ on the cross can bring us forgiveness of our sins.

 

Nevertheless, Catholicism teaches that sins can be forgiven through the good works of all the faithful.

 

2. The system of indulgences holds the faithful in the bosom of the Catholic Church. Instead of addressing God for forgiveness of sins, the faithful must toil and do their utmost to do good works within the Catholic Church.

 

It is interesting to note that the « good works » of Catholicism differ from the « good works » of the Bible.
biblical Good works are activities performed only for other human beings [they are not the cause of salvation for those who perform].

 

For cons, the good Catholic works are often linked to rituals (Masses, prayers of the rosary, candles lit …)

 

[In the Catholic sense, good works are designed first to help people who perform to obtain the forgiveness of their sins].

 

1. The system of indulgences ultimately represents a kind of blackmail, encouraging members to remain faithful to the church, so that their loved ones arrive in paradise.

 

Conclusion

 

 

This system of good works is it ordained by God? Read what God teaches in His Word, and decide for yourself:
« He saved us, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy » Titus 3:5

 

Chapter 30 – Interpreting the Word of God
Catholic faithful can they interpret the Word of God for themselves?
« The task of authentically interpreting the Word of God has been entrusted solely to the Magisterium of the Church, the Pope and the bishops in communion with him. « Item # 100, p. 41
[Interpret according to the Petit Robert *: make sense of something, make meaning of something. Synonyms: understand, explain, make clear].
Pope and bishops are they alone can properly interpret the Word of God?

 

Open the Bible and study what God thinks of this doctrine.

 

When Paul and Silas preached at Berea:
« Now these were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. « Acts 17:11

 

In other words, they interpret the Scriptures for themselves with the help of the Holy Spirit.
« Jesus answered them:

 

Are you not in error because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God? « Mark 12:24
Why did Jesus reproach He Sadducees not knowing the scriptures if they were not allowed to interpret for themselves?

Also, why would he ask Paul to Timothy to study the Bible if he could not interpret it?
« But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.

 

All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. « 2 Timothy 3.14-17
Who interprets?
The Bible reveals that this is not a group of men has been entrusted with the task of interpreting the Word of God:

 

It is the Holy Spirit who is responsible for all the children understand God. Jesus declares:

 

« But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have told you. « John 14:26
« Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you into all truth » John 16:13
The Apostle Paul himself recognized that it is the Holy Spirit who teaches:
« Now we we have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that God has given us by His grace.

 

And also we speak, not in words taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, a spiritual language to spiritual things. « 1Corinthians 2:12-13
Why does the Bible she advises Christians to meditate on the Scriptures if not in their power to interpret?
« Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against you.Blessed art thou, O LORD Teach me thy statutes!

 

My lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth. I rejoice in thy testimonies, as if I had all the treasures.

 

I meditate on your precepts, I thy paths under the eyes. I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word. « Psalm 119.11-16
A warning
The following passage should alert all those who feel they need a church to interpret the Bible for them. Paul wrote to the Christians `

:
« I write these things about them that seduce you.

 

For you, the anointing [the coming of the Holy Spirit on them] that you received from God abides in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you … « 1 John 2.26-27
[Paul speaks of teachers at the time, who claimed that their interpretation of the knowledge they passed was essential to salvation.]
God have been clearer?
Conclusion

 

Why the Catholic Church is she so eager to want to interpret the Scriptures for you?

 

Could it be because then it controls you better?

 

Fear she see you read the Bible and discover that Catholic doctrines are contrary to the Word of God?

Do you really believe that all non-Catholics are in spiritual blindness, and they need the Catholic Church to understand the Bible?
Your answer … but this chapter does he sums not the following question:

 

« Who will interpret the Scriptures for you … the Holy Spirit or the Roman Catholic Church?

 

Your answer to this question will determine who you want to obey and ultimately where you will spend eternity:

 

« O how love I thy law! It is the day my meditation.

 

Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, for I have always with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation. « Psalm 119.97-99
Additional one of our readers:
Here are the contents of a document kept in the National Library of Paris, which contains some advice Cardinals gave to Pope Julius III on his election in 1550:
« The reading of the Gospel must not be allowed as little as possible especially modern language and the country under your authority.

 

The little that is usually read at Mass should be sufficient and should defend anyone to read more.

 

As long as people will just this little, your interest will prosper, but the moment you want to read more, your interest will begin to suffer.
‘s the book that, more than any other cause rebellions against us the storms that we risked losing.
Indeed, anyone who looks diligently teaching the Bible and compares it to what is happening in our churches quickly find contradictions, and see that our teachings often deviate from that of the Bible and, more often, oppose it.

 

If people realize this, it will cause us until everything is revealed and then we become the object of derision and universal hatred.
It is therefore necessary that the Bible is removed and stolen from the hands of people with zeal, but without causing uproar.  »

Warning!

 

We by no means consider the Petit Robert as a work inspired!

 

It is simply a reference to the understanding of the French language …
Chapter 31 – Catholic prayer
« Prayer can not be reduced to the spontaneous outpouring of interior impulse: to pray, you must want it.

 

There are not sufficient to know what the Scriptures reveal about prayer: one must also learn to pray.

 

However, it is a living transmission (Sacred Tradition) that the Holy Spirit, in <> learn to pray to God’s children. »Item # 2650, p. 654
This section of the catechism is questionable on two points. Let each of them. First:
« Prayer can not be reduced to the spontaneous outpouring of interior impulse »

 

The Bible does not agree:
« With my voice I cry to the Lord, and he answered me … » Psalm 3.4
« LORD my God!

 

I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me. « Psalm 30.2
« In my distress is the Lord I cry, and he heard me. « Psalm 120.1
« At any time, people, trust in him, pour out your heart before Him; God is our refuge « Psalm 62.8
Rather than the spontaneous expression of hearts, Catholicism prefer the endless repetition of written prayers.

 

It is interesting to note that Jesus has formally rejected this form of prayer, calling him a « pagan »

« And in praying use not vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do, for they think that many words they will be heard. « Matthew 6.7
The second questionable point is in the assertion that:
« There are not sufficient to know what the Scriptures reveal about prayer: one must also learn to pray.

 

However, it is a living transmission (Sacred Tradition) that the Holy Spirit, in <> learn to pray to God’s children.  »

 

Catechism claims here that the Scriptures are not sufficient to teach you to pray. It would necessitate the assistance of the Catholic Church …

 

But how then could we pray and receive answers from God before the time of the Catholic Church?
« Abraham prayed unto God: and God healed Abimelech, his wife and servants » Genesis 20:17
« Moses prayed to the Lord and the fire stopped. « Numbers 11.2
« The Syrians came down to Elisha. He prayed to the Lord deign to hit this nation with blindness!

And he smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha. « 2 Kings 6.18
These people spontaneously expressed to God that their hearts dictate, without the help of the Catholic Church.

 

And God speaks to His people:
« Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me. « Psalm 50.15
« Do not worry about anything; but in everything, present your requests to God in prayer

 

I pray God to guide each in his personal life and help us all to walk the straight and righteous path of the Faith in the darkness of the end of time.

Keep well lit the flame of our faith, my beloved brothers and sisters in Christ as we will soon need to avoid when crossing the day of the wrath of God on earth will happen before the physical return of Jesus Chris on the Mount of Olives.

Love, Peace and Joys in the hearts and homes while waiting for the rapture of the church for some and for others the physical return to the Mount of Olives our Lord, Master and King, Jesus Christ , the only son of God.
