A Roman Catholic by definition follows Rome's teachings that are directly from Babylon. All Catholics believe Mary is in heaven and they pray to her despite the Bible and her son saying the dead are all in their grave.I know you know this already, just a reminder, some “Roman Catholics” are true Christians too. And some “Protestants” worship idols too. Now isn’t that something? Don’t feel bad, the way I’m going, I might get banned from here, I have a hard time controlling that tongue of mines! I told them to pray for me.
I just got banned from another 'Christian' forum for telling Catholics they are pagans who worship and pray to idols .
Just another sign we are in the End Times.
The parable of the Tares and the Wheat indicates that we shouldn't be too eager to try to weed out the false teachers and heretics -- we're clumsy and likely to uproot genuine believers at the same time.
For me, this goes against the grain of my natural inclinations. But why not trust in God to do this work?
Jesus called the priests 'offspring of vipers!' because of their false teachings.I was on a RCC forum a few years ago. Discovered that they welcome people of other faiths. I started asking questions about their main beliefs and pretty soon I was warned -off-line that I better be careful. I was kicked off because I questioned their main beliefs that are Not Biblical. I was merely sharing Scripture with them. They have their 'church' beliefs that are precious to them. Even though they are dead wrong, no one likes to have their beliefs challenged.
Telling them they are pagans who worship and pray to idols is Not the way to gain favor with them. Or get them to listen to Scripture.
There's nothing new about the RCC. Or that over-all world conditions are pointing towards our being in the end times.
I dont understand. Are they, or almost all of them, believers? You say "There are RCC people who Are believers", it sounds as though you are saying that a significant portion of Catholics do not believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and pray to him.And, yes, there Are RCC people who Are believers. They stay within the RCC for their own reasons. And some priests have accepted Christ and stay to reach their congregation with the Gospel.
Sue, there is a lot to consider. It is a classic case of narrow mindedness.Well -- some of the basics Of RCC are the pictures that they do worship and pray to -- but to tell them that to their face Probably isn't going to be heart-warming to them.
It's not so much What a person is trying to share -- it's HOW it's Being shared. If you're being 'in your face' about something. It probably Won't be accepted very well.
@KingJ -- no it's not being narrow-minded -- it's being truthful. But bluntness isn't always appreciated.
Yes you are right. The basic tenets of Christianity is to accept Jesus Christ as God and believe that he died for your sins, but we also know that the basics of RCC doctrine is not totally following the Bible. This doesn't exclude that some of them who might be saved, but it already makes it quite complicated. Worshipping statues for example, believing only the papacy is having a direct relationship with God and is a way to Him, doing certain things that are not found in the Bible. Now if I being an evangelical Christian believe in the name of Jesus, go to church regularly, paying my tent, being baptized, but in the same time commuting adultery for example or living other kind of double sided life, does that make me a Christian? Of course NO! See, doing one thing, but not following the other doesn't make us Christians. It is not a question just of proclaiming the name of Jesus, but also to live in His way. As the word tells us that He is the truth, the way and the life. His way is also following His word. The problem is that everything could become just a tradition that we follow, but not something taken whole heartedly, while God told us that we need to love Him with our mind,heart and soul. Catholics for example believe that just by being baptized, receiving the comunion etc. are saved already. Same can happen with protestants believing that just by going regularly to church and paying their tent are already blessed. To certain people Jesus even said that He doesn't know them. Luke 13:27I dont understand. Are they, or almost all of them, believers? You say "There are RCC people who Are believers", it sounds as though you are saying that a significant portion of Catholics do not believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and pray to him.
I thought that the basic tenet of Christianity is to accept Jesus Christ as God and believe that he died for your sins and to accept him into your life, and you will be saved?
