Welcome to our web site
to the Bible
in the 1960’s, the Catholics said it was
a mortal sin to eat meat on Fridays. Paul
had just left Catholicism, but he still
was afraid of disobeying several things
he had been taught since his childhood,
and eating meat on Friday was one of them.
So, each Friday I would cook fish of some
then, the Catholics made a new rule. Now
it was OK to eat meat on Friday.
a question: If it was a sin for people to eat
meat on Friday back then, and it isn’t
today, does that mean all those people
who sinned this mortal sin of eating meat
on Friday are doomed to Hell? And those
who now eat meat on Friday since the rule
was changed, will go to Heaven?
this make sense to you? God does NOT change,
ever! How then can the Catholic church
change it’s mind on this and other many
other things as well?
I am the Lord, I change not; therefore
ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. [KJV]
are some false doctrines of the Catholics,
according to the Bible.
A person can be justified by baptism.
A person can be justified only by faith
in Jesus (Rom.3:38; 5:1).
Justification can be furthered by good
works and sacraments.
Justification is God’s applying the righteousness
of Christ to us (1 Cor.1:30; 2 Cor. 5:21).
Salvation is achieved by grace through
faith, plus good works and sacraments.
Salvation is attained by grace through
faith, WITHOUT any works we do (Eph.2:8-9).
Good works are the results of salvation,
NOT the cause of salvation (Eph.2:10).
Jesus paid it ALL! We need do nothing
except BELIEVE in faith! John 6:29 Jesus
answered and said unto them, This is the
work of God, that ye believe on him whom
he hath sent. [KJV]
Salvation from the eternal consequences
of sin is a life-long process. We have
to keep working at it.
Salvation from the eternal consequences
of sin happens immediately upon acceptance
of Christ. It is an act of God, which
happens simultaneously with justification
Grace is a quality of the soul, something
that perfects the soul.
Grace is the undeserved favor of God (Eph.1:7-8).
Sacraments (rituals, rites) are a necessary
channel of grace.
again" believer (God’s child,
John 1:12-13) is the constant object
of the Father’s grace (Rom.5:1-2).
Grace is merited (earned, deserved) by
Grace is a free gift from God (Rom.11:6).
We do NOT deserve God’s grace.
Serious sins must be confessed to a priest.
ALL sins are to be confessed ONLY to God
the Father (Ezra 10:11; 1 John 1:9).
When the guilt of sin is forgiven, temporary
When God forgives sin, He forgives COMPLETELY
(Is.43:25; Jer.31:34; Ps.103:12; Mic.7:18-19;
1 John 1:9; Heb.8:12; 10:17).
Venial (excusable) sins do not incur eternal
EVERY sin is punishable by eternal death
(Hell) without Jesus (Rom.6:23).
Purgatory is necessary to atone for sin
and cleanse the soul.
does NOT exist! NOWHERE in the Bible does this word appear,
or is its doctrine taught. Jesus
alone made atonement for our sins possible
on the cross (Heb.1:3; Rom.3:24-25; 5:11).
Suffering souls in purgatory can be helped
by those alive on Earth by prayers, good
works and mass.
Absent from the body, present with the
Lord (2 Cor. 5:8).
No one can know for sure if they will
have eternal life in Heaven.
"Born again" believers
can know they have eternal life
by God’s Word (John 3:15-16; 5:24; 6:47;
10:28; Rom. 6:23; Tit.1:2; 3:7; 1 John
You must belong to a certain denomination
or you will never be saved.
Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation
in any other: for there is none other
name under heaven given among men, whereby
we must be saved. (KJV) NO church
(denomination) can save your soul. NO
other person or church can save you. Salvation
comes ONLY through Christ Jesus!
A person must be baptized to be saved.
The thief on the cross was not baptized
(Luke 23:43). It is the right thing to
do, but baptism will NOT save you.
The good a person does will be weighed
against the bad, at the judgment. If the
good outweighs the bad, that person is
allowed into Heaven.
A person MUST be "born
again" or they will not even
"see" Heaven (John 3:3).
Mary was preserved from the stain of original
sin from the moment of her conception.
True: Mary, as a descendant of Adam, was a sinner
the same as every other human (Ps.51:5;
Mary, the "all-holy" lived a
Mary was an absolutely wonderful person,
but she was sinner (Ec.7:20; Rom.3:10,23). Only
God alone is HolY (Ex.15:11; 1
Sam.6:20; Ps.99:9; Is.6:3; Luke 18:19;
Mary was a virgin before, during and after
the birth of Christ.
Mary was a virgin UNTIL the birth of Christ
(Is.7:14; Mat.1:25). Later on, she had
other children (Ps.69:8; Mat.13:55-56;
Luke 2:7; John 7:3,5; Acts 1:14).
Mary is the mother of God.
True: God has
NO mother. God is eternal,
having no beginning or nor end. God is
the Creator of all things (Mary included).
Mary, a created being, was the mother
of the Man, Jesus (John 1:1-3; 2:1).
Mary is the mother of the church.
Mary is a MEMBER of the church (Acts 1:14;
Mary is the co-redeemer, for she participated
with Christ in the painful act of redemption.
and Christ alone is the Redeemer,
for He ALONE suffered and died for the
sin of mankind (Mary included). NO where
in the Bible does it say anything about
a co-redeemer! (Mat.20:28;
Eph.1:7; Heb.9:12; Col.1:14; 1 Peter 1:18-19).
Mary did NOT die on the cross, she lived
after Jesus’ death (John 19:26-27).
Mary is co-mediator, and we can go to
her in prayer.
Jesus alone is the ONLY Mediator to whom
we can entrust all our cares and petitions (1 Tim.2:5; John 13:14;
1 Peter 5:7). There
is NO co-mediator!
Mary has been exalted by God as queen
of Heaven and Earth and she should be
praised with special devotion.
True: This is absolutely
false and utter nonsense! ONLY
THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS IS TO BE PRAISED,
FOR HE AND HE ALONE IS EXALTED ABOVE HEAVEN
AND THE EARTH (Ps.148:13).
God’s command to us is: "You shall
have no other gods before me"
(Ex.20:3). Jesus said we must not put
ANYONE before Him (and that includes His
mother Mary) or we are not worthy of Him
(Mat.10:37-38). The Queen of Heaven was a name for Ishtar, the Mesopotamian
goddess of love and fertility. After the
fall of Jerusalem, the refugees from Judah
who fled to Egypt continued to worship
her (Jer.7:18; 44:17-19, 25). We should
NOT worship any other god OR goddess.
We should worship only the Almighty God,
our Creator. Matthew 22:37 Jesus said
unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy
God with all thy heart, and with all thy
soul, and with all thy mind. [KJV] Mary is
Peter was the head of the apostles.
Christ was the Head of the apostles (John
Peter was never married.
Peter WAS married (Mat.8:14;
Mark 1:30; Luke 4:38).
The pope is infallible (perfect, unerring)
in his authoritative teaching.
The pope is only a man, a sinner as are
ALL men. Only
God alone is infallible (Num.23:19).
Peter was the first pope.
True: NOWHERE in any place, in all Scripture does it
say that Peter was a pope.
Scripture and tradition together are the
word of God.
Scripture ALONE is the Word of God (2
Tim.3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21). We should
stay far away from all man-made doctrines
We should bow before the pope.
True: We should NEVER bow before any man! We
should bow ONLY before Almighty God alone (Acts 10:26). The pope is simply a
man, a sinner, just as are all men (Rom.
Peter demanded that he be worshipped,
bowed down to; just like the popes and
bishops of today.
Just the opposite is true, he absolutely
refused to be worshipped (Acts 10:25-26).
We should call the pope "holy father".
True: We should
call NO man "father" in a spiritual
sense (Mat.23:9). Neither
should we call any man "reverend"
for that word is reserved for God, and
God alone (Ps.111:9).
We should repeat prayers over and over
again to make sure God hears.
We should AVOID vain repetitions of any prayers of any
