|Don't Get Upset...
This collection of articles is not a "slam" against individual Catholics, but against a "system" that claims to be based upon the authority of the Bible. If Roman Catholicism were a system of beliefs based upon the Bible, then with an open Bible, that system should be able to stand up to examination FROM the Bible. If ANY system fails to meet Christ's qualification for being true, then it is to be rejected. Jesus said to His Father in John 17:17, "Thy word is true."
Truth is in the Balance
Are you able to take a simple look at what the Catholic Church teaches compared to what the Scriptures actually say?
If after reading a few of the articles here, you still think this is only "bashing," I would ask you about the more than 100 anathemas damning those who do not strictly believe the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church. Is this not "bashing?"
This page is to reach out to all people, especially Roman Catholics of this dear country of Ireland. For those who do not have a personal relationship (instead of a ritualistic relationship) with the only Saviour Jesus Christ, please know that the simple gospel message of the Cross is able to give anybody eternal life simply by believing on Him as all they will ever need for their salvation.
We are not dealing with isolated differences between estranged "sister" churches, but clear deviation from the absoluteness of God's word.
Religion’s Failure. Just to give you a glimpse of what it is like to endeavour to win souls here in Ireland, I want to explain the failure of this world’s religions, in relation to dealing with sin, and salvation. Whether a person is Roman Catholic, Protestant, Hindu, Muslim, or trusts in any other system of belief, all fail in comparison to the Person of Jesus Christ. Here in Ireland, people know ABOUT Jesus, and really are convinced that “their church” is right about what should be believed, but they neither personally know Jesus, and quite simply do not love Him. They SAY they do, but they have no personal relationship with Him other than through ceremonies, and repetitious actions - nothing passionate. God’s first and great commandment is for everyone to love Him, the Lord Jehovah, with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength (Matthew 22:37). But how can people love Someone they do not know? The Irish here are only taught from infancy to fear and run from a god of the clergy, and hide amongst statues, beads, prayers, sacraments, best efforts, pictures, pilgrimages, and the list goes on and on. I can safely say, most of the world’s 800 million Catholics do not know that Jesus is the ONLY bridge that God built back to Himself. Nothing else will satisfy Almighty God than faith ONLY in His Son, Jesus Christ! Our main effort in Ireland is spent trying to open people’s eyes to the reality of the Jesus of the Bible as opposed to religion (Acts 26:18), and the truth of the need for repentance towards God, and simple child-like faith in our Lord Jesus Christ for forgiveness (Acts 20:20,21). Do you have that forgiveness yourself? Jesus paid a high price to make it free for all, including YOU – don’t neglect accepting it! Tomorrow may be too late!
