The Truth about Catholicism: Mother of Harlots

This bible study looks at the brutal truth concerning a hideously evil thing that has deceived and devoured the world.  It is not written out of hatred for those who are deceived by it (as will naturally be assumed by those who do not know the truth) but is rather written out of the love of Jesus Christ who would have all men to be saved, which love of his is shed abroad upon the hearts of men everywhere who are called to love the truth, that they may be made free.

John 8:32-36   “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

(or, if you reject God’s word:)

2nd Thessalonians 2:10-13   “. . . because they received not the love of the truth . . . . God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:  that they all might be damned who believed not the truth. . . .”

John 4:23   “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth  for the Father seeketh such to worship him.”

The Holy Roman Catholic Church”  (according to the news media, the world’s politicians, all the deceived.)  The Lord calls this thing the  “the great whore”.  [This institution is truly “Roman” and “catholic” (meaning “universal”), but it is not “Holy”, and can rightly be called “the church” only when referred to as the church of Satan.  Some salient points follow.

  • Satan is a lying, murdering, deceiver and he is in the religious business.  He devises counterfeits.

 

  • As the Lord Jesus has a church, Satan the imposter also has a church.

 

  • As the Lord Jesus Christ has Jerusalem, Satan presently has Rome (although “Satan’s seat” has previously been in numerous previous locations down through the centuries).  The Lord has nothing to do with Rome, except to call out those who are in it!  (Revelation 18:4)
  • It should be understood, that, by definition, the MOTHER OF HARLOTS” would have daughters!)
  • Roman Catholicism claims to be the “the mother of churches”, which is only half true:  she is, in fact, the mother of all corrupt churches, or “MOTHER OF HARLOTS”; as it is written,As is the mother, so is her daughter.”  – Ezekiel 16:44)
  • Satan’s daughter institutions have in common that they are organized by their incorporation under the authority and power of the state, with Catholicism PRESIDING OVER THE STATE AND THEM.

(1)  The mother of whores is NOT incorporated, nor is she required to incorporate by any power.

(2)  The daughter harlot denominations incorporate because they are subject to her and outwardly demonstrate it in this and many other ways!)

QUESTION:  What is incorporation?

ANSWER:  At the outset, it is the admission that the thing in question is not sovereign, but subject rather to the authority under whose power it “incorporates.”  (Catholicism rules over the governments AND their “churches,” which is why they incorporate but she does not:  they are directly subject to her earthly power, which is, in turn, subject only to Satan.)

  • Catholicism’s many daughter “churches” are “earthy” and their “idol shepherds” truly despise God’s word while pretending to be preachers of it, just as do the priests of their spiritual “MOTHER”!
  • It is ABSURD to believe or claim, as do Catholic apologists, that something as corrupt and evil as Catholicism would “. . . some day give rise to true Christianity.”  The only thing “giving rise” to Christianity is Jesus Christ the Lord.
  • The plan of God is that his church should be built upon Jesus Christ as foundation and be composed of those who are born again by the power of God to be wholly new creatures, in Christ!

The Nature of Whoredom  (You could call these “LAWS” of the matter.”)

(A)  A whore does for money with strangers, what a wife does with her husband freely.  (Whoredom isn’t “love”:  it is REBELLION against God, and the LOVE OF MONEY.)

 

(B)       Men go to whores trying to get what they’re not getting otherwise.  (Fulfillment, happiness, “love”(?), excitement  – something is missing for them!)

(If this kind of talk seems rough to your ears, consider how much you learn by the Lord calling Roman Catholicism:

(1)  “the whore” (Revelation 17:15&16),

(2)  “the great whore,” (17:1 & 19:2), and

(3)  “MOTHER OF HARLOTS”! (17:5)

(C)  If a whore has a husband she makes a disgrace of herself and him (in this case, Satan.)

(D)  When a whore isn’t needed anymore, she will be dumped!

Revelation 17:16   “And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.”

Jeremiah 51:1-2   “. . . I will raise up against Babylon . . . fanners, that shall fan her . . . they shall be against her. . . .

[All the “Pontifical” and Jesuit strategies and delusions of glory and power for their religion is for nothing, except to fulfill prophecy!  Catholicism was doomed from the beginning, and the old abomination will be tossed by her lovers like used Kleenex when Satan no longer needs her services.]

Revelation 17:1   “And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters. . . .”

[John is shown a vision of the destruction of an evil thing that is very wealthy and appears outwardly beautiful.]

(See:  Jeremiah 51:13   “O thou that dwellest upon many waters, abundant in treasures, thine end is come. . . .”)

[The “many waters” seen in John’s vision represent something:]

v. 15   “And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.”  [in other words, the extent of her power and dominion is worldwide.]

L         v. 2   With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”  [that is, spiritual fornication:  she claims Christ, but is utterly pagan.]

(The “pope” is the chief politician of the world, and the “kings” and “great men” of the world know to court his favor if they are to get power or keep power.)

L         v. 3   “. . . I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast. . . .”

NOTE:

(A)  The whore is here referred to as “a woman.”

(1)  There are two women in the book of Revelation (as there are two riders on a white horse):  they are not the same “woman” and are not to be confused with each other.

(2)  The term “a woman” appears twice in the book of Revelation, once in 12:1, and also once in 17:3.

(3)  The “woman” of chapter 12 is Israel (typified by Jerusalem), and

(4)  The “woman” of chapter 17 is Catholicism (typified by Rome).

(B)  The whore cooperates with a beast  –  she has a partner.

(C)  The “woman” of Revelation 17 has always hated the “woman” in chapter 12 for the same reason Ishmael has always hated Isaac:  ENVY!]

L         v. 3   “. . . full of names of blasphemy. . . .”  [The whore hates the God of heaven.]

v. 3   “. . . having seven heads. . . .”  [The “seven heads” seen in John’s vision represent something:]

L         v. 9   “The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.”  [in other words, the city of Rome!]

L         v. 18   “And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.”

[The whore has used”the kings of the earth” as tools to destroy those she hates:]

L   v. 6   “And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. . . .”

[The whore has murdered millions of Christians, most notably during the “dark ages” (which period of history is referred to as the  “golden years” by papists, or as “the middle ages” by those who are either ignorant or wish to appear neutral).]

QUESTION:  If we call those evil days the “middle ages,” what are they the “middle” of?

“. . . and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.”  [Her wealth makes her appear outwardly beautiful.  She is a very ugly whore with a lot of expensive stuff (and the news media always casts her in a favorable light).]

v. 3   “. . . and ten horns.”  [The “ten horns” seen in John’s vision represent something:]

L               v. 12   “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.”  [They will have the power they lusted for, but it will be short lived.]

L   v. 4   “And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour. . . .”

[The whore is decked out in the official colors of Roman Catholicism.]

L         v. 4   “. . . and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls. . . .”  [The whore is fabulously wealthy.  (For centuries she plundered and confiscated the wealth of the true Christians whom she branded as “heretics” and then killed.)]

L   v. 4   “. . . having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication. . . .”

[If you don’t picture a black-robed priest “performing the mass” here, you just don’t get it.]

(PROPHECY:  Jeremiah 51:7   “Babylon hath been a golden cup in the Lord’s hand, that made all the earth drunken:  the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad.”)

L         v. 5   “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”  [This is her true name.]

The Religious History of the Harlot and its Priesthood [Judges 17 & 18]  (Compare with Revelation 17 & 18)

17:2   “And he said unto his mother, The eleven hundred shekels . . . about which thou cursedst . . . I took it.”

[Micah is a thief, and his mother displayed her foul mouth when the money turned up missing.]

“And his mother said, Blessed be thou of the Lord, my son.”  [when she finds out what he did with the money!]

(A) Micah’s mother is quite religious.  (Satan is religious.)

James 1:26   If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.”

(B) Micah’s mother pays lip service to the Lord.

Matthew 15:8   “This people . . . honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.”

(C) Micah’s mother blesses her son, the thief.  [Both cursing and blessing come out of her mouth.]

James 3:10   “Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing.  . . . these things ought not so to be.”

v. 3   She intends “to make a graven image and a molten image. . . .”

NOTICE:

[She would have been better off if Micah had simply stolen the money and squandered it on a good time.]

Deuteronomy 27:15   “Cursed be the man that maketh any graven or molten image. . . .”

Exodus 20:4   “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing. . . .”

(Men seem to be running things here but the woman is the spiritual head of this house, the commonly used religious method used by Satan to control the home according to his plan:  the husband has no function except to take out the trash, and he is otherwise left to console himself by getting drunk or getting “high.”  He resents his wife’s authority over him, and spends his life in adultery in revenge against his wife who treats him like a child.)

  •             1st Timothy 2:11-12   “But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man. . . .”

(The woman pays lip service to “the Lord,” but FOLLOWS the idolatrous religious practices of the heathen enemies of Israel.)

  •             Matthew 6:24   “No man can serve two masters. . . .  Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”
  •             2nd Corinthians 4:3-4   (Satan is a real “god,” and the “universal” (or “catholic”) substitute for the Lord.)

[Every man that ever did anything “religious,” in his ignorance, THOUGHT he served “the real god.”]

  •                         John 16:2-3   “. . . the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.”

v. 4   She goes to the founder with her money, and “poof!,” these abominations end up “. . . in the house of Micah.”

(See:  Exodus 32:1-24   “. . . then I cast [the gold] into the fire, and there came out this calf.”)  (Poof!)

(2nd Kings 10:26-31   “the golden calves . . . were in . . . Dan)

Jeremiah 10:14-15   “. . . every founder is confounded by the graven image:  for his molten image is falsehood. . . .”

QUESTION:  How does the founder’s graven image confound him?

ANSWER:  2nd Thessalonians 2:10-13

Deuteronomy 7:25-26   “Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it . . . for it is a cursed thing.”  (Not in Micah’s opinion.  He thinks it’s an “aid to worship.”)

v. 5   Micah begins with “just a couple, or so,” but naturally ends up with a whole “house of gods.”

(1st Corinthians 8:5   “. . . as there be gods many, and lords many . . .”)

Judges 18:31   “. . . the house of God was in Shiloh.”  (Micah has rejected “the house of God . . . in Shiloh.”)

(This religion is a carnal SUBSTITUTE for true worship of the Lord; like:  “mediatrix” instead of “mediator,” “penance” instead of “repentance,” “rapture” instead of “resurrection,” “our lady” instead of “our Lord,” “original plenary autographs” instead of “scripture,” “share” instead of “preach,” “teach,” or “edify,” etc.)

[Shiloh was where the Lord’s “name” was . . . ]  (But there wasn’t enough religious junk in Shiloh to suit Micah!)

2nd Chronicles 20:9   “. . . thy name is in this house . . .”

Jeremiah 7:9-10   “ . . . this house, which is called by my name . . .”

[and was the only place where the Lord would dwell with men.]

Exodus 25:8   “And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.”

Exodus 29:43-46   “And there I will meet with the children of Israel. . . .”  (Another place is the wrong place!)

[Micah is in the business of doing again, what the Lord has done already (as in coming up with “new versions of the bible”).  Under the direction of his religious hypocrite mother, Micah assumes a religion, and religious paraphernalia to go with it, setting up his own son as a “priest” over himself.]  (Men wickedly bring this evil upon themselves:)

Isaiah 3:12   “. . .children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. . . .”  (the Catholic formula!)

(Compare:)  Genesis 18:17-19   “. . . Abraham . . . will command his children and his household after him. . . .”

v. 6   “. . . every man did that which was right in his own eyes.”

Deuteronomy 12:8   “Ye shall not do . . . every man whatsoever is right in his own eyes.”  (Even “if you claim you’re sincere when you do it!”)

Proverbs 14:12   “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

[This is the problem with the world NOW!]

[Ignorant men are always asking, “Why does the Lord allow all this evil?]

(In other words it’s God’s fault for all the evil going on!)

ANSWER:  John 18:36   “My kingdom is not of this world . . . now is my kingdom not from hence.”

(The children of this world do not obey the Lord because they do not belong to him and are not part of his kingdom!)

Isaiah 9:6-7   “and the government shall be upon his shoulder. . . .”  (prophecy of the solution to the problem)

Revelation 11:15   “The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord. . . .”  (Problem solved!)

v. 7   This sojourning “Levite” is rejected of God.

Hosea 4:6   “. . . thou shalt be no priest to me:  seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God. . . .”

He is a Levite “of the family of Judah . . .”  (This will probably be the same lineage as “Antichrist.”)

Hebrews 7:14   “. . . our Lord sprang out of Juda. . . .”

(Isaiah 14:12-14   “O Lucifer . . . thou hast said in thine heart . . . I will be like the most High.”)  (He’s a copycat!)

v. 8   “And the man departed out of the city from Beth-lehem-judah. . . .”

(In other words, he “left” his “first estate”)

See:  Jude 6   “. . . angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation . . .”  (DEVILS)

“to sojourn where he could find a place. . . .”

The Levite already had “a place” and rejected it!  (He is apostate!)

Exodus 23:20   “. . . I send an Angel before thee . . . to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.”

Numbers 8:18-22   “. . . after that went the Levites in to do their service in the tabernacle of the congregation . . .                 as the Lord had commanded Moses concerning the Levites. . . .”

Numbers 18:21   “. . . I have given the children of Levi all the tenth . . . for . . . the service of the tabernacle. . . .”

(This apostate Levite didn’t want out of the religious business, yet he left the flock the Lord had appointed him.)

Zechariah 11:17   “Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock!”  (“idol shepherd”:  a priest that likes idols)

L   v. 10   “And Micah said unto him, Dwell with me, and be unto me a father and a priest. . . .”  (“CATHOLICISM”)

Micah desires a priest (of this young man) that he can call father!?!  (Micah is Satanic!)

Matthew 23:9   “And call no man your father upon the earth:  for one is your Father, which is in heaven.”

(Satan rubs the Lord’s nose in it, that SATAN IS THIS MAN’S FATHER, not the Lord!)

John 8:44-47   “Ye are of your father the devil . . . ye are not of God.”

(Notice in this verse, that for room, board, clothes, and a paycheck this Levite can be bought🙂

“So the Levite went in.”  (He is not called of God!  He was hired,.  He is “an hireling.”)

Proverbs 23:23   Buy the truth, and sell it not. . . .”

Ezekiel 34:2   “Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves!”  (As long as there’s a living in it.)

v. 13   “the Lord will do me good” – ! ? ! (He deceives himself that the Lord has anything to do with his religion.)

Deuteronomy 29:10-20   “. . . when he heareth the words of this curse, that he bless himself in his heart. . . .”

(John 14:23   “If a man love me, he will keep my words. . . .” and he won’t be cursed!)

How the religion was spread

18:1   “In those days there was no king in Israel. . . .”

(See 17:6 for the idea here.)

“. . . the tribe of the Danites sought them an inheritance . . . for . . . their inheritance had not fallen unto them. . . .”

[The tribe of Dan did not get their inheritance, AND NEVER WILL!]

[Dan and Ishmael were both born of a bond woman.  Resenting that which God had chosen, Dan [Jacob + Bilhah] hates and tries to supplant Levi [Jacob + Leah] (and also Judah), just as Ishmael [Abraham + Hagar] hates Isaac [Abraham + Sarah], and just as Cain hated Abel, “for envy”.]

Genesis 16:1-4,15,21   “And Sarai said unto Abram, . . . go in unto my maid . . . that I may obtain children by her.”

[The result:  ISHMAEL!  (rejected by God as the children of promise)]

Genesis 30:1-6    “And [Rachel] said, Behold my maid Bilhah, go in unto her . . . that I may also have children by her.”

[The result:  DAN!  (Dan was rejected by God from the tribes of Israel]

(Compare:  Genesis 49:3-28 with Revelation 7:4-8)

[The spiritual descendants of Dan dressed up in black robes and broad phylacteries, pretending to be a priesthood!]

[Catholicism is “anti-Semitic,” which is the basis of its friendship with the “Arabs” who also hate the Jews.  (The “Pope” and the Arabs both sided with Hitler during WWII.)]

(Genesis 43:32   “. . . the Hebrews . . . an abomination unto the Egyptians.”)

(1st Samuel 13:4   “. . .  Israel also was had in abomination with the Philistines.”)

[Common hatred has always been a basis for friendship among the servants of Satan.]

(Luke 23:12   “And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together:  for before they were at enmity. . . .”)

Genesis 49:1   Jacob prophesies his 12 sons futures

v. 17   and Dan shall be a serpent by the way. . . .”  (a reference to Satan)

(see:  Genesis 3:1-4, 14  &  Revelation 20:2   “that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan. . . .”)

Amos 8:14   “They that . . . say, Thy God O Dan, liveth . . . shall fall, and never rise up again.”

(THIS IS A CURSE, AND THE NAME OF “DAN” IS NEVER MENTIONED AGAIN!)

John 6:70   Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?”  (Do you see the pattern here?)

(It was the same with the twelve tribes as with the twelve apostles.)

Acts 1:15-26   “Let his habitation be desolate . . . and his bishoprick let another take.”

(Incidentally the Lord ignored the casting of lots and chose his own replacement:  Saul of Tarsus, Paul.)

1st Corinthians 15:1-10   “. . . the least of the apostles . . . by the grace of God I am what I am. . . .”

1:1   “PAUL, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God.”

The end of the matter is contained in Revelation 21:10-14.

Revelation 21:14   “And the wall of the city had . . . the names of the twelve apostles  of the Lamb.”

(Paul’s name is on one of those walls, but not Judas’ . . .)

v. 12   “. . . and at the gates . . . names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes. . . .”

(and Manasses’ name is on one of those gates, but not Dan’s!)

v. 2   Dan is a tribe of roving marauders, looking for a “religion.”  (What was wrong with the religion they already had?)

v. 3   “When they were by the house of Micah, they knew the voice of the young man the Levite. . . .”

Isn’t it a small world?

v. 4   “Micah . . . hath hired me, and I am his priest.”

(If this “priest” is “hired” of men, then we know he will hit the road as soon as he gets a better offer.)

John 10:12   “But he that is an hireling . . . leaveth the sheep . . . and careth not for the sheep.”

v. 5   “And they said unto him, Ask counsel, we pray thee, of God. . . .”

Like Micah and his mother, these children of the devil pay lip service to “God.”

v. 6   “And the priest said unto them, Go in peace:  before the Lord is your way wherein ye go.”

The priest (the apostate Levite) also pays lip service to “the Lord” and is careful to be optimistic in his “prophesy.”

Example: 1st Kings 22:1-28   “And Micaiah said, If thou return at all in peace, the Lord hath not spoken by me.”

Deuteronomy 18:20-22   “. . . the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not             commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

[This “priest” is a false prophet and should have been put to death.  (Instead he will become the first pope.)]

v. 7   “. . . there was no magistrate in the land, that might put them to shame in anything. . . .”

(That is, there was little chance they would get caught and punished for the evil they intended.)

v. 9   “. . . we have seen the land, and, behold, it is very good . . .”

[This is just a cheap Satanic imitation of Joshua and Caleb after spying out the land of Canaan.]

Numbers 14:6-7   “The land, which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land.”

“be not slothful to go, and to enter to possess the land.”

[This is Satan copy-catting Moses.]

Deuteronomy 1:8   “. . . go in and possess the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers. . . .”

v. 10   “. . . for God hath given it into your hands. . . .”  [No, God didn’t give it into their hands, they just took it!]

v. 12   “. . .they called that place Mahanehdan. . . .”  [“the camp of Dan”]

v. 14   “. . . now therefore consider what ye have to do.”  [It took about 3 seconds!]

v. 15   “And they turned thitherward, and came . . . unto the house of Micah, and saluted him.”

That old “sign of the bowman” salute the pope is still using?  (Remember they planned to rob him!)

v. 16   “And the six hundred men appointed with their weapons of war . . . stood by. . . .”

“How many troops hath the pope?”  (One of the few pertinent questions ever asked about the old fox.)

v. 18   “Then said the priest unto them, What do ye?”

(For a “prophet” this “priest” is a little slow on the uptake.)

v. 19   “. . . and be to us a father and a priest. . . .”

The religion gets passed along intact only on a bigger scale.

v. 20   “And the priest’s heart was glad. . . .”

Of course, it was:  more money, more honor of men, more power, more women. . . .  His heart was real glad.

v. 24   “Ye have taken away my gods which I made, and the priest. . . .”  [“Here today, gone tomorrow.”]

[Compare with our God:]

Romans 8:38-39   “. . . neither death, nor life . . . nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us. . . .”

Psalm 23:4   “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death . . . thou art with me. . . .”

v. 25   “. . . lest angry fellows run upon thee, and thou lose thy life, with the lives of thy household.”

[You know, “Sometimes you have to kill a few people “to spread the gospel.”   — Office of the Inquisition

(or:)  “If you’re going to make an omelet you have to break a few eggs.”  — the CIA

(or:)  “If you’re going to run the mob, sometimes you have to break a few bones.”  — Mafia]

v. 26   “. . . when Micah saw that they were too strong for him, he turned and went back. . . .”

(Isaiah 42:17   “They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images. . . .”)

v. 27   “. . . they . . . came unto . . . a people that were at quiet . . . and they smote them with the edge of the sword. . . .”

(This is the exact format used by the pope throughout Europe, Mexico, South America, etc.)

v. 28   “And there was no deliverer. . . .”  (Which is why they got away with it.)

[The “deliverer” is a reference to the Lord himself, and to his intervention and protection.]

2nd Samuel 22:2   “The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer. . . .”

Romans 11:26   “. . . as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer. . . .”

v. 29   “And they called the name of the city Dan, after the name of Dan their father. . .”

“who was born unto Israel. . . .”  (But rejected of God.)

v. 30   “And the children of Dan set up the graven image. . . .”

(Of course they did!  When you have a graven image, you will always set it up!)

“he and his sons were priests to the tribe of Dan . . .”  (As though the Levitical priesthood didn’t exist?)

(How is it that this phoney replacement “priesthood” didn’t mind presiding over a religion based on graven images?)

“until the day of the captivity of the land.”

(The captivity was sent by the Lord because this renegade priesthood brought Israel into rebellion against God.)

v. 31   “And they set them up Micah’s graven image . . .”

(This is a particularly sore spot with the Lord, and he repeats himself from verse 30.)

“all the time that the house of God was in Shiloh.”

(There are now two religions in Israel:  one is according to the true pattern, and the other is a Harlot phoney.  These Danites are outwardly “religious,” but  God’s plan for worship is utterly rejected by them.  They are “Catholic.”)

1st Corinthians 6:15-17   “. . . know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? . . .   But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.”

This Harlot Religion Is Cursed of God

Revelation 18:4   Come out of her, my people, that ye . . . receive not of her plagues.”

Jeremiah 51:6,45   My people, go ye out of the midst of her . . . from the fierce anger of the Lord.”

[But the whole world, in rebellion against God, joins in with her!  The “ecumenical movement” is of Satan.]

Revelation 19:2   “. . . he hath judged the great whore . . . and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.”

[They pay lip service to Christ, but they are of antichrist.]

Mark 7:6   “He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.”

Matthew 7:16   “Ye shall know them by their fruits.”

Corruptions of Doctrine by Catholicism  (Abbreviated bible references follow:  for additional information see relevant studies.)

(1)  The bible (“Authorized” or “King James”) is the word of God and is the authority for the church.  (See:  “The Bible” file.)

1st Corinthians 4:6   “And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written. . . .”

Psalm 138:2   “. . . for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.”

[Of all the hundreds of so-called “bibles,” only “the King James” is NOT making a profit from a copyright.  The “Authorized” bible alone was literally given free to the world, as it is written:]

Matthew 10:8   “. . . freely ye have received, freely give.”

!     Any “bible” except the Authorized is acceptable for use, although none of them is to be really considered authority, since only “the Roman church”, along with its opinions, traditions, bulls, dogmas, cannons, decrees, councils, “holy fathers,” etc., has authority in conjunction with the bible. [even though these all hopelessly contradict each other].

1st Corinthians 14:33   “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.”

1st Samuel 15:23   “Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee. . . .”

Matthew 15:9   “But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”

(If a man claims his authority is “the bible AND the church,” then he has TWO authorities, he has simply made himself his own authority in choosing between them, in response to his opinions!)

(2)  The Lord Jesus Christ is the church’s only mediator.

1st Timothy 2:3-6   “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. . . .”

!     “Mary co-mediates for the church”.  (This dead woman’s official  Catholic title is “mediatrix”.)

John 14:6   “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:  no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

Acts 4:10-12   “Neither is there salvation in any other. . . .”

Colossians 2:10   “And ye are complete in him. . . .”

Matthew 6:24   No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.”  (Guess which one gets despised!)

Matthew 11:28-29   “Come unto me . . . I will give you rest . . . learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart. . . .”

John 10:1   “. . . He that entereth not by the door . . . but climbeth up some other way . . . is a thief and a robber.”

v. 7   “Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.”  (not Mary, or anybody else!)

Isaiah 53:3-7   He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows. . . .”

“Mary’s” title, “Our Lady of Sorrows”, was simply stolen from the Lord.

(3)  The Lord hates “the queen of heaven”.

Jeremiah 44:4-17   “Oh, do not this abominable thing that I hate.  . . . to burn incense unto the queen of heaven. . . .”

(The people have always loved worshipping this abomination and will never quit.)

7:17-20   “. . . they . . . make cakes to the queen of heaven . . . that they may provoke me to anger.”

!     “Mary is the queen of heaven and so is to be given glory.”  [The real “Mary” has no part with this.]

Isaiah 42:8   “I am the Lord . . . and my glory will I not give to another.”

1st Kings 11:5,33;  Acts 19:26-28,35   “Ashtoreth . . . Diana” and now “Mary!”  (New name:  same scam!)

Ecclesiastes 1:9-10   “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be . . . there is no new thing under the sun.”

(4)  New Jerusalem is the mother of us all.

Galatians 4:26   “. . . Jerusalem which is above . . . is the mother of us all.”

(For “New Jerusalem” see:  Rev 21:2;  3:12;  &   21:10)

Isaiah 66:10-13   “As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.”

!     “Mary is the mother of us all.”  [There is, of course, no such thing in the bible!]

[Satan’s strategy relies on your believing the lie that “Mary” is your mother so you could be led to worship the abomination of the “queen of heaven.”  (One deception is built upon another.]

2nd Corinthians 2:11   “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.”

(5)  Mary was a proper biblical wife to her husband, Joseph, in that she had sex with him following the birth of the Lord.

Matthew 1:22-25   [Joseph] . . . knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son. . . .”

(After “her firstborn son” was born, Joseph knew her, which is commanded.)

1st Corinthians 7:4-5   [concerning sex in marriage]  “Defraud ye not one the other. . . .”

Matthew 12:46-50   “. . . his mother and his brethren stood without. . . .”

(Also in Mark 3:31-35  &  Luke 8:19-21)

Matthew 13:55-56   “. . . his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?”

Mark 6:3   “. . . the brother of James . . . [etc.] and . . . his sisters. . . .”

(If you’re trying to tell yourself that “brethren” is synonymous with “disciples,” you ignored the bible:)

John 2:12   “. . . he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples. . . .”

Psalm 69:8   [prophecy]  “. . . a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother’s children.”

(This prophecy is proved in the following verse 9, and in John 2:13-17)

!     “Mary is the eternal virgin.”

[This corruption of the true Mary, which was not instituted until after several centuries of gradual perversion of truth by the “popes” is designed to make the Catholic queen of heaven conform to the ancient pagan version.]

(Satan must lift Mary up if she is to be worshiped, however the Lord never participated in any of this evil:)

Luke 11:27-28   “And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.  But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.”

(The Lord repeatedly put Mary in her place, for example!)

Matthew 12:46-50   “While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.  Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.  But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?  And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!”

(6)  Mary is the mother of the Lord’s flesh when he was born into the world as Messiah, “Son of God” and “Son of man”.

(For Messiah to become the “Son of man”, he would have to be “born of a woman” and he was, yet he himself was from the beginning! as it is written:)

John 1:1-3   In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

vs. 14-15   “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us. . . .  John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.”

[As it was with John Baptist, it also is with Mary:  the Lord came “after” Mary concerning the birth of the flesh, but he was before her.]

[The priests worship and glorify the Lord’s fleshly parents, because the priests are carnal, deceived, and evil!]

Romans 1:24-25   “. . . Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature. . . .”

(That is, for example, “Mary”, “saints”, “holy fathers”, graven images of “Peter”, etc.)

!     “Mary is the mother of God.”  (See:  “Mary, The Catholic Version” file.)

(This term, “mother of God” is a blatant blasphemy, and the information in the bible against it is staggering.)

Hebrews 7:1-3   “For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; to whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace; without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life [The Son of God was on earth before being born of a woman.]  (Perhaps, being deceived by Catholicism, you did not know that!)

v. 4   “Now consider how great this man was. . . .”  (Why are YOU helping Satan to raise up Mary?)

Psalm 110:4   “The Lord hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.”

(The prophecy of Messiah is, of the “the order of Melchizedek.”  Jesus Christ the Lord.)

(7)  The church is to keep itself from graven images.  (See:  “Graven Images” file.)

Exodus 20:4-6   “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven. . . .”

Deuteronomy 7:26   “Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.”

1st Thessalonians 1   “For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God. . . .”

John 4:24   “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”

!     Graven images are to be considered by the Roman church as “aids to worship”.

Romans 3:4   “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.”

(8)  “Holy Father” is a title of the Godhead.

John 17:11  (The one and only use of this term in the bible is here used when the Lord prayed to his heavenly Father.)

!           “Holy Father” is a title of the “Pope”.  [The worldwide use of this term for the “Pope” reveals both the depraved state of the man who takes this title, and the ignorance and spiritual darkness of the world which accepts it in blasphemy against God.  The “Pope” shows himself openly as a blasphemer and antichrist, and the whole world slobbers over him in approval, exactly as they will do in respect to the antichrist who will do the same thing.]

2nd Thessalonians 2:4   “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”

(9)  Jesus Christ sent the Holy Ghost to take his place until he returns.

John 14:16   “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter. . . .”

v. 26   “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”

15:26   “But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me. . . .”

16:7   “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.”

!           “Vicarious Fili Dei” (literally: “takes the place of Christ”) is written in Latin on the “Pope’s” mitre, and is the official doctrine of the Catholic institution concerning the “papacy”.

Matthew 12:31   “Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.”

Luke 12:10   “And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.”

(10)  Jesus Christ was sacrificed once and only once.  The “mass” is a sham and an abomination.

Hebrews 10:10   “By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.”

v. 14   “For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.”  [Is this really too complicated for you?]

vs. 16-18   “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.  Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.”

!           The mass is the true sacrifice again of Jesus Christ, and contained in the “transubstantiated” wafer is the body, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ.  “Even if Christ be not predisposed to come down out of heaven to be truly sacrificed again at the moment of transubstantiation in the mass, he is compelled to do so anyway:  such is the power of the priest.”

[This phoney pagan ritual is practiced thousands of times a day in the world in the ignorant belief that thus, and so often, is Christ being truly sacrificed again.]

Hebrews 10:11-12   “And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:  but this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; from henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.”

[The world will not again have the opportunity to get its hands on the Lord.]

The “Mass”

[While remembering that the Catholic Institution claims it never changes, take note of the following changes.]

The ritual of “the mass” was established by the Catholic institution in 394 A.D.

(1)  The “mass” is not one thing, it is many things, and it is part of many things.

(2)  The “mass” is the centerpiece of Catholicism.

(3)  The “mass” is an abomination before God!

The “priests” began to distinguish themselves from the laity through the wearing of special clothing in 500 A.D.

Praying to “Mary,” dead “saints,” and “angels” began in 600

The first human being on earth to be proclaimed “pope” took place in 610.

“Veneration” of relics was authorized in 788.

“Holy water” was instituted in 850.

Canonization of dead “saints” was first done in 995.  [Not to promote Jesus Christ, but to promote Catholicism.]

The “Mass” was not thought of as “a sacrifice” until the 11th century.  [Previous Catholics were heretics.]

The mandatory celibacy of priests was instituted in 1079.

The idea of “rosary beads” was borrowed from Hinduism and introduced by Peter the Hermit in 1090.

The sale of indulgences was instituted in 1190.

The inquisition [torture and murder of Christians and confiscation of their property] was legalized by the Fourth Lateran Council in 1215.

The doctrine of “transubstantiation” was decreed by “Pope Innocent III” in 1215.

(Notice, also that a mere five years later:)

“Adoration” of the wafer was decreed by “Pope Honorius III” in 1220.

The doctrine of “Purgatory” was proclaimed in 1439.

Tradition was declared of equal authority with the bible by the Council of Trent in 1545.

[This was their response to the growing awareness of Catholic “excesses” in fabricating unbiblical doctrine!]

The “apocryphal books” were added to the bible by the Council of Trent in 1546.

The “Immaculate Conception” of Mary was proclaimed by “Pope Pius IX” in 1854.

Infallibility of the “pope” was proclaimed by the First Vatican Council in 1870.

[Previous and subsequent “popes” had been declaring other popes as “heretics” and “anti-Christs”!]

“Pius XI” declared Mary to be “The Mother of God” in 1931.

“The Assumption of the Virgin Mary” was announced by “Pope Pius XII” in 1950.

[Before this it was said that she “died a virgin”! – which is also a lie (Matthew 13:55-56; John 2:12; etc.).]

Mary was proclaimed as the “Mother of the Church” by “Pope Paul VI” (a Nazi) in 1965.

 

(1) The abomination of “the mass” is not “just another denominational preference” performed by a “priest” who is “just another pastor of another church”  [Observe the following official Catholic writings.]

L               This Is The Catholic Church:  “It should be easy to see why the Mass holds such an important place in the Church’s life.  The Mass is the very essence of the Church.  Within it the Church’s life, and the Church’s very existence is centered.  If there were no Mass, there could be no Catholic Church.  The Mass is our act of worship, an act which we know to be really worthy of God, because it is the sacrifice of God’s own Son.  * * *  It is through the Mass as well as through the other sacraments that the effects of Christ’s salvation are applied to the souls of men.”  (Published by Catholic Information Service, Knights of Columbus, Imprimatur: “Most Reverend” John F. Whealon, Archbishop of Hartford) (pp. 24-25) [Emphasis added.]

[SALIENT POINTS:

(1)  The “mass” is an overt act of satanic devil worship.

(2)  “God’s own Son” will NEVER be sacrificed again!]

“Sacrifice is the very essence of religion.  And it is only through sacrifice that union with the Creator can be perfectly acquired.  It was through sacrifice that Christ Himself was able to achieve this for man.  It is only through the perpetuation of that sacrifice that this union may be maintained.” [Emphasis added.]

[SCRIPTURE:

Romans 6:9   “Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.”

Hebrews 7:27   “Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.”

9:25-26   “Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; for then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.”

10:11-14   “And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:  but this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God. . . .”]

L               The Spirit Of Jesus:  “The Holy Eucharist is the perpetual continuation of this act of sacrifice and surrender of our Lord.  When the Lord’s supper is celebrated, Christ again presents Himself in His act of total surrender to the Father in death.”  (pp. 89-90, Imprimatur: John Joseph Cardinal Carberry, Archbishop of St. Louis)

L               Sons of God in Christ:  “He offers Himself continually to the Father, in the same eternal act of offering that began on the cross and will never cease.” (emphasis added)  (book 4, p. 117)

L               For Them Also:  “The Mass is identical to Calvary — it is a sacrifice for sin — it must be perpetuated to take away sin.”  (pp. 289-299)

L               Catechism of Trent:  “The document on the Church repeats in substance the teaching of the Council of Trent that ‘priests and bishops are the representatives of God on earth . . . justly, therefore, they are called not only angels, but gods, holding as they do the place of authority of God on earth.’”

(Remember that it is written:  Matthew 20:25-28   “. . . they that are great exercise authority  upon them.  But it shall not be so among you. . . .”

L               “alter Christus”  (“other Christs”)  “Where there is no priest there is no sacrifice, and where there is no sacrifice there is no religion . . . without the priest the death and passion of our Lord would be of no avail to us . . . see the power of the priest!  By one word from his lips, he changes a piece of bread into a God! A greater feat than the creation of a world.  * * *  If I were to meet a priest and an angel, I would salute the priest before saluting the angel.  The angel is a friend of God, but the priest holds the place of God. . . .”  – “Saint” J.B.M. Vianney

[If you are not nauseous after reading this, you are truly sick.]

Romans 12:10   “Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love. . . .”

L               Instructions For Non-Catholics:  “A priest does not have to ask God to forgive your sins.  The priest himself has the power to do so in Christ’s name.  Your sins are forgiven by the priest the same as if you knelt before Jesus Christ and told them to Christ Himself.”

Acts 8:18-22   Repent therefore . . . and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.”

(Peter does not “receive confession” from the man! but sends him to God.)

L               Baltimore Catechism:  “penance . . . the sacrament by which sins committed after baptism are forgiven through the absolution of the priest”  (p. 300)

L               Council of Trent:  (Section 6)  “Whosoever shall affirm that men are justified solely by the imputation of the righteousness of Christ . . . let him be accursed.”  [This seems to me to be enough for one day.]

Romans 5:16-18   “. . . even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.”

Ephesians 1:1-7   “In whom [Jesus Christ] we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace. . . .”

Colossians 1:14   “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins. . . .”

2:10-13   “And you . . . hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses. . . .”

Priesthood (according to the word of God)

John 18:19-22   “And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so?”  (Who is the real “high priest” here? and who is the son of Satan?)

Acts 23:1-5   “Then said Paul, I wist [consider] not, brethren, that he was the high priest: for it is written, Thou shalt not speak evil of the ruler of thy people.”

QUESTION:  Who WAS the ruler of Israel? (and still is!)  (The same god who rules America and the world!)

ANSWER:  John 8:28-44   “Ye are of your father the devil. . . .”

24:1   “And after five days Ananias the high priest descended with the elders, and with a certain orator named Tertullus, who informed the governor against Paul.”

Hebrews 3:1   “Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus. . . .”

4:14   “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.”

2nd Corinthians 4:1-5   “Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.”

2nd Timothy 4:1-5   “But watch thou in all things. . . .”  (Don’t be like the others out there!)

(Isaiah 56:10-11   His watchmen are blind:  they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.  Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understandthey all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.”)

1st Corinthians 4:6   “. . . learn in us not to think of men above that which is written. . . .”

(2) The “Holy Eucharist” of Catholicism (the wafer god)

Transubstantiation,  n.  A change of one substance into another; specifically, in the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Eastern Churches, the doctrine of the conversion of the bread and wine in the Eucharist into the body and blood of Christ, only the accidents of bread and wine remaining.” – Webster’s New Universal Unabridged, 2nd Edition

Canon I:   “If anyone shall deny that the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ, and therefore entire Christ, are truly, really, and substantially contained in the sacrament of the most Holy Eucharist; and shall say that He is only in it as a sign, or in a figure – let him be accursed!”  – Council of Trent

Canon II:   “If anyone shall say that the substance of the bread and wine remains in the sacrament of the most Holy Eucharist, together with the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ . . .  – let him be accursed!”  – Council of Trent

Canon VI:   “If anyone shall say that Christ, the only begotten Son of God, is not to be adored in the holy sacrament of the Eucharist, even with the open worship of Latria, and therefore not to be venerated with any peculiar festal celebrity, nor to be solemnly carried about in processions according to the praiseworthy and universal rites and customs of the Holy Church, and that He is not to be publicly set before the people to be adored, and that His adorers are idolators  – let him be accursed.”  – Council of Trent

(Latria,  n.   in the Roman Catholic Church, the highest kind of worship, due to God alone. . . .)

[The above is played down in America because there were too many bible believers here to allow this to be publically acted out; but not so in other parts of the world where Catholicism thoroughly rules and the people are in absolute darkness.]

(Paul said by the Holy Spirit, “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.”  — Galatians 1:8)

The Catholic “proof-text”:  John 6:54-55   “Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.  For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.”

ENTER SOUND DOCTRINE:  (contending for the faith from the word of God)

John 6:24-63 (53)   “Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.”

[Consider the “literal interpretation” of this proof-text used as a justification for the abomination of the mass.

(A)  This passage is one of the most highly figurative in the word of God;

(B)  The unholy Roman pagan religion almost never officially takes any passage in the word of God literally (concerning, for example, calling men “father,” loving graven images, celibacy of priests, tithing, calling “the pope” “Holy Father,” claiming “the pope” takes the place of Christ, Mary as the “Mother of God,” Mary is a “mediatrix” for believers, worshiping Mary, worshiping objects, perpetual sacrifice of Christ, etc.)

(C)  even if it were true that this verse should be taken literally, we would still be light years away from proving or demonstrating “transubstantiation” as a result (which is an abominable and ungodly absurdity in itself); and

(D)  taking this verse literally forces absurd contradictions upon the Lord (which is not a problem for Catholics who truly hate him and are really seeking the glory of “the queen of heaven”, “the mother of graces,” “the holy mother,” “our lady,” etc.) and THEMSELVES.]

(E)  Consuming “the flesh of the Son of man” is NOT done alone, but includes drinking “his blood”.

[If this verse was taken literally, then the Lord contradicts his own word and promotes absurdities because:

(1)  Drinking blood is forbidden by the word of the Lord, and

  • Acts 15:20   “But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.”
  • v. 29   “That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood. . . .”
  • 21:25   “As touching the Gentiles which believe, we have written and concluded that they observe no such thing, save only that they keep themselves from things offered to idols, and from blood. . . .”

(2)  the Lord would have to be thus teaching cannibalism of himself . . .

(a)  who is a risen LIVING saviour and will never die again, and

  • Romans 6:9   “Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more. . . .”

(b)  doesn’t need to die again.

  • Hebrews 7:27;  9:26, 28; 10:10   “Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice . . . for this he did once, when he offered up himself.”

v. 35   “And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.”

(1)  This is not a description of two things“coming” to the Lord ORbelieving on” him, but of ONE thing.

(2)  Coming to the Lord “and” believing on him is a SINGLE ACT which cannot be separated!

[To come to the Lord and NOT believe on him is just as sick as to believe on him and NOT come to him!]

(4)  [If this is to be taken physically (not spiritually), then we would have to (A) physically come to him, (B) physically believe on him, and then (C) physically eat him.  The problem with that is:

(A)  We can’t physically get to him.  (He is in heaven and we don’t have space ships that can get us there.)

(B)  We can’t physically believe on him.  It’s only by spiritual power that this can be done.

  • John 6:44   “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him. . . .”

(C)  Everyone will physically hunger and physically thirst if physical food and physical water is taken from them.

L         So that what the Lord said here is simply not true in any of it’s parts, if the Lord meant it “physically” (or literally).

v. 58   “This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.”  (That is, NOT with your mouth  –  NOT physically!)

v. 63   “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”  [If you don’t understand this, maybe you don’t want to understand it.]

Meat Is Not Always “meat.”  (The Lord is on a spiritual plane and men are always dwelling on their bellies.)

John 4:31-34   “But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.”  [Read this passage.]

(Matthew 26:39, 42   “. . . if it be possible, let this cup pass from me. . . .”)

[This is the “meat” of which the lord spoke (and it wasn’t a physical cup at all either).]

1st Corinthians 10:1-4   “Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; and were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; and did all eat the same spiritual meat; and did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.”

NOTICE:

(1)  This baptism did NOT make Israel “right with God”

(a)  it only got them to the other side of the Red Sea,

(b)  where they were mostly all rejected of God later, anyway.  (1st Corinthians 10:5&7)

(2)  There is nothing provided here literally to “eat,” and nothing to “drink” except salt water

(a)  either they didn’t have anything physical to eat in connection with this baptism, or

(b)  what they ate and drank was so unimportant that it wasn’t mentioned.

(3)        The Catholic priesthood does not exist and cannot trans-substantiate Jesus Christ to make him physically available for eating or drinking.

Matthew 5:6   “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.”

(The Lord is the answer for this “hunger” and “thirst” and a man’s belly has nothing to do with it.)

 

THE CONFESSIONAL BOX  (Out of the mind of Satan!)

James 5:16   Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”

“Mary” (The Catholic Version)

A list of LIES concerning Mary follows below which the servant of the Lord Jesus Christ will recognize as Satan’s masterpiece of pagan seduction for religious folks made drunk by the “MOTHER OF HARLOTS”.

 

Mary is our ‘mediatrix.’”  (“mediatrix” is not in the bible:  see Webster’s:  “mediatrix,  n.  a woman mediator”)

1st Timothy 2:3-6   “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. . . .”

John 14:6   “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:  no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

Acts 4:10-12   “Neither is there salvation in any other. . . .”  [Satan is a liar!]

Colossians 2:10   “And ye are complete in him. . . .”  (What is it about these verses you can’t understand?)

Mary is our intercessor.  We go through Mary because she’s meek and merciful and hears our prayers.”

[The inescapable conclusion here is that the Lord is NOT meek and merciful, and will not hear your prayers!  The truth of the matter is that the real Mary is dead and does not hear anyone’s prayers!  Further, the Lord said:]

Matthew 11:28-29   “Come unto me . . . I will give you rest . . . learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart. . . .”

James 5:11   “. . . the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.”  (Do you see what Satan is doing by giving this to Mary?)

Hebrews 2:17   “Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.”

8:12   “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.”

John 10:1   “. . . He that entereth not by the door . . . but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.”

v. 7   “Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.”  (not Mary, or anybody else!)

vs. 26-27   “But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. . . .”  [Not the pagan “queen of heaven”, by any name!]

6:45   “It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.”  [not Mary!]

vs. 28-37   “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”

Mary is ‘our lady of sorrows.’”  (This title was simply STOLEN from the Lord.)

Isaiah 53:3-7   He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows. . . .”

1st Corinthians 3:11   “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

Mary is ‘the Mother of God.’”  (This term and its doctrine are both a blatant blasphemy.)

[The Catholic exaltation of “Mary” by association with the pagan “Mother of God” was first made in 431 A.D.]

John 1:1-3   In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

v. 14   “And the Word was made flesh. . . .”

(1)  Mary became only the mother of His earthly flesh.

(2)  The Lord was “In the beginning”.

(3)  Mary was descended from the house of David, and so, the prophecy became true as it was written of the Lord that he thereby became “the son of David” in the flesh, but:

(a) the Lord was not only the “offspring” of David, but also the “root”!

  •                         Revelation 22:16   “I am the root and the offspring of David. . . .”

(b)  Mary wasn’t the “root” of anything, and

(c)  she didn’t come “before” the Lord, who himself came before everything;

 

  •                         John 8:58   “Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.”

(d)  making it absurd, ridiculous, and blasphemous to call her, “the Mother of God.”

(For the Lord to become the “Son of man.” He would have to be “born of a woman” and He was!)

See:  Genesis 3:15   It was not written of Mary, but of Eve’s seed “. . . her [Eve’s] seed . . . shall bruise thy [Satan’s] head. . . .”  [The Lord himself is that “seed”!]

[The priests pretend to worship and glorify the Lord’s fleshly parents, because they are Babylonian, carnal, deceived, and evil!]

Romans 1:24-25   “. . . Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature. . . .”

(“The creature” refers to created beings:  Mary and Joseph, “saints”, “holy fathers”, “popes”, etc.)

Luke 2:46-50   “. . . wist ye not that I must be about my Father‘s business?”

[Mary was here corrected by the Lord in her error of referring to Joseph as Jesus’ “father”!]

(1)  This is not a small point:  Joseph was not Jesus’ “Father”, he was just the husband of his fleshly mother.

(2)  The Lord’s correction of his fleshly mother on this point is removed and corrupted in the phoney bibles.]

(3)  The prevalent cozying up to this “family” tradition nonsense is apostasy and heresy

(setting out images of “the holy family” at “Christmass time,” and so on).

Hebrews 7:1-3   (Melchisedec: king/priest) [Jesus Christ]   “. . . Without father, without mother, without descent. . . .”

5:5-11   “Thou art a priest for ever after the order of  Melchisedec.”

[Melchisedec IS Jesus Christ, who dwelt on earth as King of Salem long BEFORE he was born of flesh!)

6:20   “. . . Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.”

7:13-17   “For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.”

7:4   “Now consider how great this man was. . . .”  (You are being told how great he is, if you have ears to hear!)

[The Lord was on earth repeatedly, and long before either Joseph or Mary were born!  For example:]

Genesis 3:8   “. . . the Lord God walking in the garden. . . .”  (Where is the “Mother of God” here!)

18:1   “And the Lord appeared unto [Abraham] in the plains of Mamre. . . .”  (Mary’s grandparents aren’t born yet.)

John 8:57-58   “Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.”  [Where was Mary?]

We worship Mary because her son worshiped her.”  (There is not a shred of truth to this lie.)

Luke 11:27-28   “And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.  But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.”

Matthew 12:46-50   “While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.  Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.  But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?  And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!”

(The Lord never participated in Satan’s con job about worshipping Mary.)

We give glory unto Mary because she is the ‘Queen of Heaven.’”

Isaiah 42:8   “I am the Lord . . . and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.”

66:3-4   “. . . their soul delighteth in their abominations . . . they . . . chose that in which I delighted not.”

1st Kings 11:5, 33;  Acts 19:26-28,35   “Ashtoreth . . . Diana” and now “Mary!”  (a phony “Mary”)

Ecclesiastes 1:9-10   “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be . . . there is no new thing under the sun.”

Jeremiah 44:4-8 & 15-17   (The “queen of heaven” is an abomination and God hates it.)

vs. 25-27   (As then, so it still:  those who love to worship the queen of heaven stubbornly refuse to repent of it.)

7:17-20   “. . . they . . . make cakes to the queen of heaven . . . that they may provoke me to anger.”

The Queen of Heaven is worthy to be served.”  (say Catholics Hindus, Muslims, etc., etc.)  [So, what is the problem?]

Matthew 6:24   “No man can serve two masters:  for either he will hate the one, and love the other:  or else he will hold to       the one, and despise the other.”

(Exactly!  Satan understood this perfectly when he designed “the great whore” religion.)

Colossians 2:8-9   “For in him [Jesus Christ] dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” [not Mary]

1st John 5:7   “. . . the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost . . . are one.”  [Mary is not part of the “Godhead”.]

1st John 5:10-11   “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.”

John 5:22-23   “For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:  that all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father.”

Psalm 62:1-7   He only is my rock, and my salvation. . . .”  (Not Mary, Peter,  or anybody else!)  [from cover to cover]

Mary is worthy of worship.”

Matthew 4:10   “Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”

15:7-9   “. . . in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”

Revelation 18:1  &  19:10   “And I fell at his [an angel’s] feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God. . . .”

[Accordingly, even the angels of God will not allow themselves to be worshipped.]

Mary loved us so much.”  (This is blatant perversion and blasphemy.)

John 15:13   Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

[Jesus Christ said that and then DID that.  If you wish to believe that “Mary” laid down her life for you, you only prove how much you despise the Lord and reject His work.]

Ephesians 2:4-7   “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us. . . .”

[So you would go to a dead woman to find love, instead of to a risen Lord who died for you so that you could live?]

John 3:16   “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”  (Can you not see how you have been tricked into despising Christ?)

Mary is ‘Mother of the Church’ & ‘Mother of Us All’.”

[“Mother of the Church” was invented for “Mary” through Catholicism and proclaimed by “Pope Paul VI” (a Nazi pope) in 1965 using intentional perversion of scripture, John 19:25-27, as an excuse for their pagan affections.]

John 19:25-27   “

[In this passage, at the occasion of the Lord’s imminent death, the Lord instructs John to take Mary as though she were HIS mother to take care of HER.  The Lord did not make Mary the “mother of the church” here except in the depraved imaginations of wicked and evil men.]  (Further, the bible is clear on this subject:)

Genesis 3:20   [concerning flesh]  Eve is “. . . the mother of all living.”

Galatians 4:26   [concerning the elect]  “. . . Jerusalem which is above [New Jerusalem] . . . is the mother of us all.”

(For “New Jerusalem” see:  Rev 21:2;  3:12;  &   21:10)

Isaiah 66:10-13   As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.”

Mary is ‘greatest of women’ & ‘blessed above all.’”

Luke 1:28  &  41-42   (The real Mary is “blessed . . . among women” but that is as far as it goes! )

(Compare with Judges 5:24,   “Jael is “blessed above women. . . .” )

[The following are all “blessed” and we don’t worship any of them!]

Luke 6:22   Blessed are ye when men shall hate you. . . .”

Revelation 22:14   Blessed are they that do his commandments. . . .”

Matthew 24:45-46   Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.”

Romans 4:8   Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.”

Luke 1:46-47   “And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.”

Mary is the ‘eternal virgin.’”

[This corruption of the true Mary was invented after several centuries of gradual perversion of truth by Catholicism and is designed to make the Catholic queen of heaven conform to the ancient pagan version of her, yet it is utterly without biblical foundation, and is entirely contradicted by scripture.  It was necessary that Christ be born of a virgin:]

Isaiah 7:14   [prophecy]  “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”  (This is not the birth of God:  it is the birth of the flesh of the Son of God!)

Matthew 1:18-25   Joseph, “. . . knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son. . . .”

(After “her firstborn son” was born, Joseph knew her.  That is, they had sex with each other, which is commanded.)

1st Corinthians 7:4-5   [concerning sex in marriage]  “Defraud ye not one the other. . . .”

Psalm 69:8   [prophecy]  “. . . a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother’s children.”

(This prophecy is proved in the following verse 9, and in John 2:13-17)

Matthew 12:46-50   “. . . his mother and his brethren stood without. . . .”

(Also in Mark 3:31-35  &  Luke 8:19-21)

Matthew 13:55-56   “. . . his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?”

Mark 6:3   “. . . the brother of James . . . [etc.] and . . . his sisters. . . .”

John 2:12   “. . . he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples. . . .”

(You see, if you’re trying to tell yourself that “brethren” is a reference to his “disciples,” you’ve just been corrected!)

7:3-5,10   “. . . for neither did his brethren believe in him.”  (His disciples believed in him.)

We saw a vision of ‘Mary’ and we heard her speak.  She told us to pray to her heart and build a shrine to her.”

John 10:26-27   “. . . ye are not of my sheep. . . .  My</
