CHRISTIAN CATHOLICS

doubting-thomas

I believe there are some Christians  Catholics but I also believe that most people who are going to a Christian Church are not saved, at  least 70 percent of them and it is higher than that in some Places too.. The Catholics rightfully for 2000 years now  accept Jesus Christ is God, they believe in the trinity, God the Father, son and Holy Spirit, the need of being filled with the Holy Spirit, the resurrection of the dead. Christ coming back for his own, the need for prayers,  and they do believe in the   Bible now too as the word of God.. Unfortunately they have add false doctrines in the Catholic Church  not substantiated by the Bible.. but that I also applies to the Evangelical and Pentecostal churches now too,

.

Mary the mother of was never God and she never was part of the Trinity. That false theology is Catholic add on carp to the Bible.. And as far as the Trinity look at Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

.

 Body soul and spirit.. but you are still a very ignorant person if you are not holy Spirit filled,  for you cannot understand the Bible without the Holy Spirit.. something many clearly do not have.. that is their basic Problem too..

.

1 Corinthians 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

.

1 Corinthians 2:6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:

.

1 Corinthians 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

.

 The Trinity is one God who exists simultaneously in three persons. Each is coequal, copowerful, and coeternal with the other. Each person–Father, Son and Holy Spirit–is not the other. Without either there is no God; all comprise the one God.

.

 Analogy of the Trinity: With time, for example, the past is distinct from the present, which is distinct from the future. Each is simultaneous. Yet, they are not three ‘times,’ but one. That is, they all share the same nature: time

.

 Trinitarian Verses- Matt. 28:19, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,”  1 Cor. 12:4-6, “Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. 6And there are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons.” 2 Cor. 13:14, “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.”

.

Word Trinity is not in the Bible. Just because the word “trinity” is not in the Bible doesn’t mean that the concept is not taught. The word “monotheism” is not in the Bible, yet the Bible teaches it (Isaiah 43:10; 44:6,8). the Trinity is a doctrine arrived at systematically (by looking at the whole of scripture), not by looking at a single verse. There are also no trinities in pagan theology. There are triads (three gods), but no trinities (one God in three persons). there are verses that show that the F., S., & H.S. are each God, each indwell, each have a will, each loves, etc.? The F., S., & H.S. are each called God (F., Phil. 1:2), (S., John 1:1,14; Col. 2:9), (H.S., Acts 5:3-4). Each has a will (F., Luke 22:42), (S., Luke 22:42), H.S., (1 Cor. 12:11). Each is all knowing (F., 1 John 3:20), (S., John 16:30; 21:17), (H.S., 1 Cor. 2:10-11), etc. Regarding the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each has a will (F., Luke 22:42), (S., Luke 22:42), H.S., (1 Cor. 12:11). Each speaks (F., Matt. 3:17), (S., Luke 5:20., (HS., Acts 8:29; 13:2).

.

Objectors to the trinity do show that they  still don’t understand or even know the Bible.

.

Again as far as Mary she Mary is just a person like you and I and dies now too there is not one Bible verse that says otherwise and the gospels are about Jesus, not his mother. 

.

Mary of Nazareth is one of the few women in the ancient world whose life story we know: as girl, mother and mature woman. There are numerous false  misconceptions among Christians about Mary, the mother of Jesus.

.

The Immaculate Conception is a doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church. According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, the Immaculate Conception refers to the sinless state of Mary. Pope Pius IX proclaimed this doctrine of the Immaculate Conception of Mary on December 8, 1854. and that was crap.. there is no biblical support or basis for it. They  Mary, although favored of God, was an ordinary human being. Only Jesus Christ was immaculately conceived, born of a virgin, and born without sin. He was the only human being to live a sinless life and not Mary at all… Based on Scripture, the miracle of Jesus Christ’s conception was that he alone was conceived as the only perfect and sinless one, because of his complete union with the divine nature of God.

.

The Assumption of Mary is another false  Roman Catholic doctrine, and to a lesser degree it is also taught by the Eastern Orthodox Church. Pope Pius XII proclaimed this doctrine on November 1, 1950 in his Munificentissimus Deus. This dogma states that the “Immaculate Virgin,” the mother of Jesus, “after the completion of her earthly life was assumed body and soul into the glory of Heaven.” This means that after her death, Mary was assumed into heaven, body and soul, in a manner similar to Enoch and Elijah. The doctrine further states that Mary was glorified in heaven and is “exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things.” The Assumption of Mary doctrine is based solely on church tradition. And not Bible does not record any further details about  Mary after Jesus Christ’s ascencion to Heaven.

.

EVEN JESUS Christ HAD TO DIE BEFORE HE WAS TAKEN TO HEAVEN.. HOW MUCH MORE MARY.

.

The Perpetual Virginity of Mary is also a false a Roman Catholic belief. It falsely states that Mary remained a virgin throughout her entire life. Similarly, no basis for the Perpetual Virginity doctrine exists within the Scriptures. In fact, in several places the Bible names the children of Joseph and Mary, Jesus’ brothers. One of the most moving meetings must have been when Jesus appeared to James (as Paul describes in 1 Corinthians 15:7). James, who had thought Jesus was crazy, who had tried to drag him out of the house, who had convinced Mary and the other brothers not to believe Jesus, now was a changed man. In obedience to Christ’s commands he was baptised, and in the forty years that remained of his life, James was to become one of the pillars of the early Christian church. Eventually he gave his own life for his new faith in Christ. The other brothers also converted, were baptized, and became leading members of the church..

.

Praying to Mary today also is a waste of time.  Another reason not to pray to Mary is that anyone who does so is breaking one of God’s commandments. In the Bible God forbids anyone to consult the dead:  ” We are not to pray to Mary in that Jesus taught that all prayer must be addressed only to “Our Father who art in Heaven” in Jesus name.. . (Luke 11:2) Jesus did not even teach us to pray to himself; when he prayed he prayed to God. There are no examples of prayer to anyone except God, our Father in the whole Bible. Not even  to Jesus???

.

•Psalm 116:4, “Then called I upon the name of the LORD [YHWH] ; O LORD [YHWH], I beseech thee, deliver my soul.”

Clearly, the phrase is used of God in reference to prayer to Him. The phrase is never used in reference to anyone else other than God. Remember that “call upon the name of the Lord [YHWH]” in Hebrew was translated into Greek by the Jews in the LXX and they rendered “YHWH” into the Greek “kurios,” which means “lord.” This phrase was then used of Jesus in 1 Cor 1: 1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:3 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

This is clear evidence that Jesus is called YHWH since the same phrase used to address God is also used to address Jesus.

JESUS CHRIST IS LORD GOD.

Furthermore, in 2 Timothy he charged Timothy to pursue spiritual things “with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart” (2 Timothy 2:22).

.

Certainly not to Mary. And Mary herself, as we have seen, sung to and prayed to God, and Him only.

.

Also Beware of the love of self and hypocrisy:

.

“Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:1)

“And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. “And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words.” (Matthew 6:5-7)

.

  Beware of the love of money:

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matthew 6:19-21)

.

“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” (Matthew 6:24)

.

  Beware of loving this world:

.

“Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” (Matthew 6:31-33)

.

Listen, and obey God and not mere men and women…

.

Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?” (Matthew 16:24-26);

.

Confess your sins, pray and read, practice the Bible everyday
