GOD AND I ALSO LOVE CATHOLICS

c_o

For 2000 years Catholics have not denied that Jesus is God and they also believe in the Trinity

But Jesus Christ plainly taught that Mary was on the same plane with all other Christians who would do the will of God. In Mark 3:31-35 we read:

“There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, sent unto him, calling him. And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee. And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren? And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother. “

Do not avoid the truth here on the authority of Jesus Christ, “Whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.” And when one heard Jesus and cried out, “Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked, “Jesus answered, “Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.” (Luke 11:27-28) There is no hint in the Bible that New Testament Christians ever regarded Mary as more than a good woman. She had no authority among the apostles. No one was taught to pray to her, to do her homage, to adore her, or to partake of the unscriptural worship which Catholics do, but call it by other names.

The False Beliefs:

Falsely believe purgatory is a place where a person is purified of sins – even popes supposedly go there. The Bible says, when a person dies their eternal home is sealed – heaven or hell – there is no place in between like purgatory. (Hebrews 9:27) The word “purgatory” and its concept is not found in the Bible.

Falsely believe in worshiping images of Mary, crucifix, saints, angels, etc. The Bibles speaks out against this. (Exodus 20:4-5)

Falsely pray to and worship Mary – an 1854 papal decree (Pope Pius IX) on the Immaculate Conception of Mary that has never been revoked, states, “Let all the children of the Catholic Church … continue to venerate, invoke, and pray to the most blessed Virgin Mary, mother of God, conceived without original sin.” Praying to Mary is something that is not spoken of in the Bible and would make her an equal with God, thus she has become a deity to Roman Catholics. Mary, according to the Roman Catholics has become the queen of heaven. When the queen of heaven is referred to in the Bible, she is spoken of negatively. (Jeremiah 7:17-19) Mary needed a savior as much as anyone else and acknowledged this in Luke 1:47.

Falsely believe that Mary is a co-redeemer with Jesus. In 1923, Pope Pius XI sanctioned Pope Benedict XV’s (1914-1922) pronouncement that Mary suffered with Christ, and that with Him, she redeemed the human race. Pope Pius XI officially designated Mary the “Queen of Heaven” and “Queen of the World.” The Bible specifically states that Jesus is the only way to get to heaven. Nowhere in the Bible does it state that Mary is a co-redeemer. (John 14:6) God speaks out very clearly against the “Queen of Heaven”. (Jeremiah 7:17-19)

Falsely believe in repetitious prayer to Mary, saints and angels. The complete Rosary involves repeating the Hail Mary 53 times, the Lord’s prayer 6 times, 5 Mysteries, 5 Meditations on the Mysteries, 5 Glory Be’s, and the Apostles’ Creed. The Rosary did not come into general use until after the beginning of the thirteenth century, and not officially sanctioned until after the Protestant Reformation in the sixteenth century. The concept of praying to Mary, saints, and angels is not found in the Bible; on the contrary, we are directed to pray to our Father. (Matthew 6:9-13) In the Rosary, Mary is prayed to almost 9 times for every prayer directed to God. The Bible speaks out very clearly against praying in vain repetitions as the heathens do.

Mary magnified above Jesus is demonic, crap

False believe in oral traditions and teachings by Jesus that are not mentioned in the Bible;

Belief that the church is founded upon the apostle Peter, that he was the first pope. The true Church of Jesus Christ was not founded upon Peter, but upon Peter’s confession of Christ’s deity as recorded in Matthew 16:16: “…Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.” The Bible says that Jesus is the foundation of the church. (Matthew 21:42; I Corinthians 3:11) Peter was not the first pope, nor is there any Biblical justification whatever for such an office. Peter’s own inspired testimony as to his position and ministry is given in I Peter 5:1-4. He then identifies himself in II Peter 1:1 as “a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ….” Peter was a man like you and me. When Cornelius tried to worship Peter, Peter responded, “Stand up; I myself also am a man.” (Acts 10:25-26). The pope needs to remember this when men are bowing to him and kissing his hand like he is worthy of worship. Furthermore, history confirms the fact that there were no popes in the early church, not even in the Roman Catholic church during the first centuries of its existence.

Belief that the pope is the Holy Father, a title only given to God. The pope is a man who takes upon himself honor which belongs to no human being. Even the very name by which he allows himself to be called (Holy Father) is highly presumptuous and blasphemous. (John 17:11)

Falsely believe that Jesus merely made the way open for salvation. In order to enter into that salvation, one must live in obedience to the authority of the papacy. In addition, Jesus’ provision for salvation not being complete, the Roman Catholic church offers other means to assure one’s salvation. The Roman Catholic church says it alone can grant this essential blessing for full salvation. This supersedes the Bible in which God guarantees our salvation. (John 10:27-29; Romans 10:9-17) Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than going to a garage makes you a mechanic.

Falsely believe that we are saved in part by good works and that good works are necessary for salvation. The Bible says we are saved by grace through faith, not works. Good works come as a result of being saved. (Romans 3:24-28; Ephesians 2:8-9)

Falsely believe there are different levels of sin; mortal (deadly) sins in which you are in danger of losing your salvation and venial (minor) sins which are not as serious. Mankind has placed different distinctions on sin (i.e. someone caught lying is not punished as severely as a person who is a murderer). However, in God’s eyes, sin is sin, there is no distinction. (Romans 3:23)

Falsely makes salvation a long, complicated process with no assurance of eternal life and forgiveness of all sin.

Now how really stupid you are to believe all that? Really stupid,

PERSECUTIONS

00beach (1)
FACE IT ALL CHRISTIANS HAVE TO FACE PERSECUTIONS, ALL, EVEN AT HOME, WORK, ON THE NET
.
Is the continual silent treatment, the clear attempt at ignoring you, even for days or weeks a sign of a mental abuse?
.
We all have an equal right to speak and to be heard now as well. We tend talk to those people we love, and reject, ignore, divorce those people we hate. No question about it. This type of response is a common and immoral act by selfish, spoiled, self centered persons. Anything that they now next can do to upset you, to get you guessing about why too, or to make you think that you have done something wrong, have them is their basic approach, motive. Some of it is just false hatred of you.
.
Now the Devil is busy all the time, and every time I write, tell, preach a truth the devil will send someone to deny it, contradict it, oppose it, tries to shut me up, discredit me but you know that too now if you are serving Jesus.
.
Did you know that sibling rivalry, abuse is one of the most common forms of family violence, acts? As in Cain and Abel,
.
The phrase “family ” has become shorthand for a focus on a married-couple family with children. The high rate of divorces these days defies the deeply held notion that family relationships can’t be dissolved and suggest that estrangement is not all that uncommon. Assuming that every relationship between a parent and child will last a lifetime is as simplistic as assuming every couple will never split up. Anyway our first priority is to love God
.
TOO MANY PERSONS AS WELL ARE LOVING, KIND TO FAMILY MEMBERS ONLY DURING THE HOLIDAYS, SUCH AS THANKSGIVING, CHRISTMAS.. It’s the classic image of the holidays: Parents, siblings and their children gather around the family table to feast and catch up on one another’s lives. But it doesn’t always exist that way.
.
” Some adults choose to stop talking to their parents or returning home for family gatherings. Parents, In laws may disapprove of a person so intensely that he or she is no longer welcome home. All the hurt and betrayals, all the things that accumulate, undermine a person’s sense of original trust so even some spouses choose to stop talking to their partners. Family Estrangement, rupture has become too common.
.
Estrangement can be defined as one or more relatives intentionally choosing to end contact with another because of an ongoing negative relationship, even a conflict of interests. Often achieving this new distance is hard, but maintaining distance is harder. Some adult children no longer made an effort to fulfill expectations of the daughter-son role, such as the person who after some years with no contact with a father, declined to visit him in the hospital or to attend his funeral. Still others chose to limit conversations with a family member to superficial small talk or reduce the amount of contact. In our culture, there’s a ton of guilt caused by not forgiving your family member, others.
.
In a survey 8 percent of adults said that they had cut off a family member. And 19 percent of respondents reported that another relative or they themselves were no longer in contact with family. Multiple factors appear to come into play.
.
The reasons for the rupture fell into different categories. Difference in religious views may cause a religious persecution, rejections or even serious differences in personal goals. A the son or daughter may chose between the spouse and a parent or someone else. Or the adult child was punishing the parent for “perceived wrongdoing” not just a difference in values. Or even additional ongoing stressors like domestic violence, divorce, unemployment, betrayal (keeping secrets or sabotaging them), poor parenting or failing health, symbols of “cumulative disrespect”
Persecution is the act of harassing, oppressing, or killing people . Christians are persecuted because their belief in Jesus Christ as Savior does not conform to the godlessness of a sinful world.

LUKE 18
29 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God’s sake,
30 Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.
Psalm 27:10
For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the Lord will take me in.
John 1:11
He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him.
John 15:18
“If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you.
Luke 10:16
“The one who hears you hears me, and the one who rejects you rejects me, and the one who rejects me rejects him who sent me.”
1 Corinthians 2:14
The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.
John 15:25
But the word that is written in their Law must be fulfilled: ‘They hated me without a cause
Psalm 118:22
The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone
2 Corinthians 4:9
Persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed
Romans 8:28
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:31
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
Deuteronomy 31:6
Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”
Romans 8:1
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Matthew 10:34
“Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.
Matthew 5
10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
Matthew 10
33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
Luke 12
9 But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.
John 17
14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
Matthew 10:
16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.
22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.””

It is too  common for a Husband, wife, family members also to oppose you following Jesus
.
Proverbs 14
1 Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.
