I write these articles so that you may know that the Roman Catholic church is a system of idolatry, and the following statement from the Pope is clear evidence of that. Here is an excerpt from his statement entitled “Jesus cannot be understood without His Mother”
“Mary is so closely united to Jesus because she received from Him the knowledge of the heart, the knowledge of faith, nourished by her experience as a mother and by her close relationship with her Son. The Blessed Virgin is the woman of faith who made room for God in her heart and in her plans; she is the believer capable of perceiving in the gift of her Son the coming of that ‘fullness of time’ in which God, by choosing the humble path of human existence, entered personally into the history of salvation. That is why Jesus cannot be understood without His Mother. [Vatican City, 2 January 2015 (VIS)]
When a truth seeker opens up their Bible they will learn very quickly that Jesus never put his earthly mother on a pedestal as the false church of Rome has always done. The Roman Catholic church reveals its blatant idolatry on a daily basis, as its leaders continue to push the motherhood of Mary, and the motherhood of the church of Rome. It is truly amazing to me that the Christian church remains silent about these things, and has even joined hands with the church of Rome for many decades now. I continue to read Martyr’s Mirror which contains the testimonies of many men and women who were put to death for their stand against her false teachings. They went head to head with the Roman Catholic priests who said the vilest and wicked things, to the precious true saints of God, even until their last breath. The true Christians told their Catholic tormentors that they did not believe in their teachings regarding the Eucharist, the Mass and many other teachings, and they would interrogate them for hours on end. When they did not succeed in getting the Christians to recant their beliefs they had them put to death. The good news is that you can read the book for FREE at MARTYR’S MIRROR ONLINE
Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (John 8:42-44)
The Christians who were murdered by Rome knew the Lord, and they knew that they were going home to be with him after they were either drowned or put to the flames.
Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. (Psalms 116:15)
The following passage describes the actions of Rome, and any other religious system which claims to know God, and persecutes and murders true Christians:
These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that WHOSOEVER KILLETH YOU will THINK that HE DOETH GOD SERVICE. And these things will they DO UNTO YOU, because they HAVE NOT KNOWN the FATHER, nor ME. (John 16:1-3)
A synagogue is a meeting place, and you can certainly apply those words to the meeting place of the modern-day “church” also. The church of Rome is on a full court press for a so-called “Christian Unity” but I am telling you not to have anything to do with the false doctrines of Rome, nor the “Mother” church, as they describe themselves. There are hundreds of millions of precious Roman Catholic people that are headed for an eternity in Hell, and the modern-day evangelists and pastors are working hand in hand with them! Those Roman Catholic people have never been truly born again of the Spirit because their church teaches them that they are born again when they are baptized as infants. If they were TRULY born again, then they would know that the Catholic teaching on being born again as an infant was FALSE! The Holy Spirit is the spirit of TRUTH, and he led me out of that demonic system immediately!
“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.” John 16:13
The Holy Spirit showed me that the doctrines regarding Mary, the Catholic Mass, indulgences, the false Catholic priesthood, and all that other “religious stuff” was DEMONIC to the very core! If the Roman Catholics were truly born again then they would know that the Roman Catholic teaching on the sacrifice of the Mass was blasphemy. The RCC teaches that their Mass “satisfies the justice of God for sins committed against him” but Christ settled the account almost 2000 years ago. The Roman Catholic teaching on their Mass qualifies it as a FALSE GOSPEL on that one teaching alone!
There is a curse upon that false gospel according to the apostle Paul, and I hope that you take heed to his warning, and exit that religious system immediately for the sake of your own precious soul.
“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. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.” Galatians 1:8-10
Humble yourself and do not worry about what your family and so-called “friends” say to you. If you know the Lord is leading you to salvation, then grab hold of it, and call upon the Lord NOW, not later, because LATER may never come!
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
“Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.” Proverbs 27:1
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” Hebrews 9:27
You do NOT have to go “through Mary” to call upon the Lord Jesus Christ as the church of Rome teaches. You are spiritually dead in the sight of God, and you need the ETERNAL LIFE which God offers to you. Yes, there is no question that YOU are a sinner in need of mercy and forgiveness, just like the rest of us, BUT that is exactly why Jesus Christ came into this world! Call upon the one who died for the UNGODLY ones like me and you, and YOU shall be set FREE even as you are reading this blog post right now!
“For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. 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 5:6-9
The Roman Catholic church keeps millions in bondage, and they still offer up masses for the dead people in purgatory, including their Catholic Popes from the past! That is absolutely insane! Pope Francis declared that Jesus cannot be understood without his mother, but Jesus himself told us in his word, that the Holy Spirit is our teacher, so we don’t need “Mother Mary” to help us to understand him.
These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. 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. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I. And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe. (John 14:25-29)
Jesus Christ was about to be KILLED and he promised his followers that he would send them “the Comforter” which is the Holy Spirit. Jesus told his followers that the Holy Ghost (the Comforter) would teach them all things. The Lord Jesus Christ also told his followers that the Holy Ghost would bring to remembrance the things which he spoke. The Lord never gave an inkling to his followers that they needed his “Mother Mary” at all to understand him. I am a former Roman Catholic who prayed thousands of “Hail Mary” prayers until I was born again of the Spirit, and the “Hail Mary” prayers came to a screeching halt immediately after that. The Holy Spirit did exactly what the Lord said he would do, as he has comforted me for 30 years now, and I thank him for that. That same Holy Spirit showed me that the Roman Catholic version of “Mother Mary” is nothing more than a demonic invention, and a rabbit trail to distract precious souls from coming to know the real Jesus Christ. It was the Holy Spirit of truth who opened my spiritual eyes to the gross idolatry and wickedness of the Roman Catholic system.
I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the SPIRIT OF TRUTH, is come, he will guide you into ALL TRUTH: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall GLORIFY ME: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. (John 16:12-14)
The Holy Spirit will always point you to Jesus Christ, and he will glorify him! There is absolutely no place at all for “Mother Mary” in that equation, as Jesus Christ is the only name by which a person can be saved. (Acts 4:10-12) Listen to Jesus Christ instruct his followers once again:
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: (John 15:26)
As I said before, it was the Holy Spirit who opened my eyes to the gross deception of the Roman Catholic church which held me for the first 36 years of my life. The Holy Spirit showed me that Jesus Christ died for ungodly wretches such as myself and that he justified me by his blood which he shed on the cross. (Romans 5:6-9) The Holy Spirit also showed me that everyone else in the world, (ungodly wretches) must come to salvation in the same way, through Jesus Christ alone. (John 14:6) I can say without hesitation that the TRUTH has surely set me FREE! Jesus Christ himself spoke the following words:
And ye shall know the TRUTH, and the TRUTH shall make you FREE. (John 8:32)
If the SON therefore shall make you FREE, ye shall be FREE indeed. (John 8:36)
It was a great joy to be delivered from the deception of the Roman Catholic Mass, which Rome declares satisfies the justice of God, for sins committed against him. It was a great joy to know that I did not need to pray to Mary, or any of the Roman Catholic man-made “saints” because the scriptures taught me that Jesus Christ was the only mediator that God accepted. (1 Timothy 2:5) I can also say that I love the precious souls within the Roman Catholic system, but I continue to tell them to come out of Rome and come to know the real Jesus Christ.
We should not be surprised by the actions of the Roman Catholic church, because they teach that a person is “born again” into the church when they are baptized as little infants. I was baptized as a little infant, and I can assure you that I was not truly born again of the Spirit at the age of 36 through faith in Jesus Christ. When a person is truly born again of the Spirit, they will suddenly realize that they are “strangers” and “aliens” in a world of gross darkness. That is why Jesus Christ spoke the following words to his followers before he went to the cross.
If the world HATE YOU, ye know that it HATED ME before it HATED YOU. If ye were of the world, the world would LOVE HIS OWN: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore THE WORLD HATETH YOU. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have PERSECUTED ME, they will also PERSECUTE YOU; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they KNOW NOT HIM that sent me. (John 15:18-21)
