I am so glad that the Lord opened my eyes to the truth about salvation back in 1989, and delivered me from the gross deception of Roman Catholicism. I now have discernment in these things simply as a result of the Holy Spirit, opening the scriptures to me and pointing me to Jesus Christ.
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; (1 Timothy 2:5)
Not only that but I know that the BLOOD of Jesus Christ has delivered me from the wrath to come, and I have no fear about going to Purgatory: The Place That Does Not Exist.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. (Romans 5:8-9)
As a new creation in Jesus Christ, I do not need any Catholic masses to be said for me either, because the great high priest Jesus Christ, has paid the price in full for me at the cross. If the BLOOD of Jesus Christ is not sufficient to pay for our sins then nothing will ever be enough. I am saved by the mercy and grace of almighty God, and that is good enough for me.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
What we need now in this modern day is another reformation to rekindle these simple and basic Bible truths, and less of the absolute compromise, capitulation and demonic square dancing that we see in places such as TBN.
Here is an excerpt from a book entitled “The Glories Of Mary” which is available for sale on the TBN website.
“Bernard de Bustis relates that a bird was taught to say ‘Hail Mary’ A hawk was on the point of seizing it, when the bird cried out ‘Hail Mary!’ in an instant the hawk fell dead. God intended to show thereby, that if even an irrational creature was preserved by calling on Mary, how much more would those who are prompt in calling on her when assaulted by devils, be delivered from them.” [The Glories Of Mary, By St. Alphonsus Liguori, TAN Books and Publishers, Rockford, Illinois, 61105, page 67]
The Devil will always steer a person away from the only hope and refuge for their soul, and that is the person of Jesus Christ.
