Why do Non-Catholic Christians
Attack Jesus? And Jesus said, "Father, forgive them; for they
know not what they do." What has been is what will be, and what has been done is
In Matthew 16:18 Jesus said, "And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will
build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against
it." Many Protestants have told me
that the Catholic Church fell into apostasy at some unknown time after the
last 1John 5:10, "He who believes in the Son of God has the
testimony in himself. He who does not believe God
what will be done; and there is nothing new under the sun.
Now Jesus did say Church and not churches didn't He? So He founded a single Church and none other, right?
And what about the gates of hell not prevailing against it? That means His Church will last to the end of the world, doesn't it?
Matthew 28:19-20, "Going therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the
Son and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.
And behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world."
Hmmm, this is a second time that Jesus said His Church would last forever and He would be with it every day in every century until the end of time.
He said that around 2000 years ago so it is obvious that His ONE and ONLY Church is still with us today.
Remember, that was His promise.
Apostle died and of course they can never tell me when, or provide me with a genuine historical document of proof.
So what they really said to me is that Jesus was a liar for His promises of His perpetual Church.
has made him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has borne to his Son."
And Jesus said, "Father, forgive them; for they
know not what they do."
What has been is what will be, and what has been done is
In Matthew 16:18 Jesus said, "And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will

Many Protestants have told me
that the Catholic Church fell into apostasy at some unknown time after the
1John 5:10, "He who believes in the Son of God has the
testimony in himself. He who does not believe God
Jesus would never lie to us,
He couldn't. Remember, He IS God and God cannot
However protestants can. Just start counting their lies in this page.
Please note that when I use the word 'protestant' from this point on, I refer to all who call themselves 'Christian' but are not in the one Church that Jesus Christ founded in about 29-30 A.D..
Hebrews 6:18, "That by two immutable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we may have the strongest comfort, we who have fled for
refuge to hold fast the hope set before us."
This is more biblical proof that Jesus Christ could not lie.
Acts 5:38-39, "And now, therefore, I say to you: Refrain from these men and let them alone. FOR IF THIS COUNCIL OR THIS WORK BE OF MEN, IT WILL COME TO NAUGHT: BUT IF IT BE OF GOD, YOU CANNOT OVERTHROW IT, LEST PERHAPS YOU BE FOUND EVEN TO FIGHT AGAINST GOD.
And they consented to him."
WOW! Those two verses fit protestantism to a 'T'. They have been trying to overthrow the Catholic Church for almost 500 years, from 1520 when Martin Luther broke from the Catholic Church and formed the first protestant denomination, and right to this day. Oh and by the way read all you can about Luther and you will find in 1520 and many years before and after that time, the Catholic Church was mentioned by name many times. So it was still here in Luthers time almost 1500 years after it was founded by Jesus Christ.
The Body of Christ:
Gee whiz look at these verses:
Ephesians 1:22-23 "and he has put all things under his feet and has made him the head over all things for the church,
WHICH IS HIS BODY, the fulness of him who fills all in all."
So the Church that Jesus Christ founded that will last forever is really and truly His Body. Do Protestants believe those verses? Apparently not since they are always attacking His body, His one and only Catholic Church.
Did you ever think of how many people who attack the Body of Christ will be taken to Heaven?
Read on for much more that proves that it is the Catholic Church that is the Body of Christ and NONE OTHER.
John 4:7-9, "There came a woman of Samar'ia to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give me a drink."
For his disciples had gone away into the city to buy food. The Samaritan woman said to him, "How is it that you, a Jew,
ask a drink of me, a woman of Samar'ia? For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans."
Jesus was a Jew, right?
Judaism had only one temple for all and it was located in Jerusalem, so many Jews had to travel long distances to
worship there. Long distances in those days could be 70 miles or more, a hardship for the Jews but they did it.
Things changed drastically for that situation since Jesus established a world wide 'universal' Church.
The Universal Church:
Acts 1:7-8, He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has fixed by his own authority.
But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem (Local)
and in all Judea and Sama'ria (Expanding out) and to the end of the earth (World Wide, 'Universal')."
There you have it. His Church is not confined to one city where the people had to go long distances to worship.
Instead He is bringing His Church to the people all over the whole world in time, making it 'Universal'.
Acts 9:31, "So the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Sama'ria had peace and was built up; and walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit it was multiplied."
So His Church, now being built up as it is spreading out, had a second person of the Holy Trinity, the Holy Spirit comforting it.
Dtd you notice in the first three words of that verse it says 'So THE church', singular?
Take a look at Revelation chapters 2 and 3. All of those churches listed are examples of the expansion made by the Apostles and their followers of the one Church that Jesus Christ founded. They had gone long distances establishing more Churches farther away towards becoming 'Universal'.
THOSE CHURCHES ARE NOT PROTESTANT CHURCHES AS PROTESTANTS WOULD LIKE US TO BELIEVE.
The word protest-ant did not even come into being until 1529, about 1500 years after the Catholic Church was founded.
A name for the 'Universal' Church: Divide and conquer or is it 'divide and lose' your soul?
So why is it that protestants cannot name the Church that Jesus Christ himself founded? Many say the reason is that the word 'catholic' cannot be found in the bible. Well let us look and see if it is or not. I gave you a clue in Acts 1:7-8 above. It is easy if you knew some important basic bible rules that everyone should know before even opening their bible. One of the basic rules is to realize that the entire bible was written in foreign languages and so all that we read in English is a translation, and not the original writing. Accurate translations of every word between two languages is difficult for some words because of the parameters that differ between the languages. Hebrew has only about 8000 words and is one of the most difficult to translate because each word could have many different meanings depending on the context of which it is used. Greek is easier to translate, as it has so many more words than Hebrew. Context is also very important for proper English translation from the Greek. As one example, take the English word 'brethren' where protestants see it only as brothers of Jesus, when He had no brothers. Read Acts 1:15 where there were 120 'brethren'. Ask a protestant how did the mother of those 120 brethren manage to do that in one lifetime? Brethren has many other meanings such as friends, neighbors, cousins, companions, etc.
The OT was written mostly in Hebrew and the NT was written mostly in Greek. The book of Acts was translated from the Greek and the word 'Catholic' is not a Greek word as such.
The word 'Catholic' came from Latin catholicus, from the Greek adjective (katholikos), meaning 'UNIVERSAL'.
I will note here that 'katholikos' is a translation too of sorts in a small way because Greek letters are entirely different from English letters and my keyboard does not have Greek letter keys on it.
The English word 'Catholic' does not have to be in the Bible as such because the evidence is there in Latin as Catholicus and who spoke Latin in those days? Rome did (John 19:20). And Romans certainly talked a lot since they were in power in Israel from about 63 BC to well over two centuries later. More importantly, the liturgy within the Catholic Church was in Latin, Catholicus.
So are the protestants lying when they say they cannot find the word 'Catholic' in the Bible? Not necessarily. They may just be ignorant of bible structure because they are not taught the truth. Truth can only be gained through Jesus Christ (John 14:6) and His one and only Catholic Church and not through protestant ministers who were self appointed and certainly not appointed by Jesus Christ.
By the way, in order to be fair and the protestants claim they cannot find the word 'Catholic' in the Bible, I cannot find Lutheran in the Bible. Also to be fair I cannot find a faith called Baptist, Methodist, Anglican, Mormon, Episcopalian, Adventist, etc, just go Here for scores more, all founded by humans who had no God given authority to do so.
1Corinthians 10:32, "Give no offense to Jews or to Greeks or to the church of God."
It is the Catholic Church and none other. Notice again the singularity of the word 'Church'.
Do protestants give offense to the Church of God? You bet they do. I receive it a lot, my being a member of
the Body of Christ.
Divide and conquer or is it 'divide and lose' your soul?
1Corinthians 11:18-19, "For, in the first place, when you assemble as
a church, I hear that there are divisions among you; and I partly believe
it, for there must be factions among you in order that those who are genuine among you may be
There have been divisions from the very beginning but the true Catholic Church survived them all and there are hundreds of genuine historical writings written by many Catholic Church Fathers in every century to prove it.
Go Here for a list of Church Fathers and Here for a list of their writings in many centuries
Remember the promise of Jesus that He would be with His Church for all days.
"To become deep in history is to cease to be Protestant."
A quote by a convert from the Anglican Church, Cardinal John Newman.
1Corinthians 11:22, "What! Do you not have houses to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the church of God and humiliate those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I commend you in this? No, I will not."
Do you despise the Church of God? Many Protestants do, by telling me the Catholic Church is not the true Church.
Too bad they can never prove what they say by giving me their unknown name of the 'true' Church that has been in operation every day in every century ever since Jesus Christ founded it. Since Jesus Christ founded it almost 20 centuries ago, it must be very large, world wide, and have over a billion members, and yet many protestants still refuse to name it.
Protestants, for the umptheenth time, please give me the name of the Church that Jesus Christ founded?
The truth please!
1Corinthians 12:27-31, "Now you
are the body of Christ and individually members of it.
And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, then healers, helpers, administrators, speakers in various kinds of tongues.
Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles?
Do all possess gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret?
But earnestly desire the higher gifts. And I will show you a still more excellent way."
I must again point out the singularity in the first two lines, 'one body' and 'one church'.
Are you in the Body of
Christ? Certainly not unless you are in the Catholic Church. How could you
be if your denomination was founded in 1520 or years later by a mere
human person who had no God given authority what so ever in which to do so? Show
me the verse that says any denomination founded by any human person is
in the Body of Christ?
Dear protestant wouldn't you rather be within the Body of Christ rather than being outside of it and attacking it?
1Corinthians 14:34-35, "the women should keep silence in the
churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be subordinate, as
even the law says. If there is anything they desire to know, let them ask their
husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church."
Protestants take pride in telling me that they obey the teachings in Holy Scripture. So will even one explain to me why there are so manyProtestant females in so many denominations who are ministers?
1Corinthians 15:9, "For I am the least of the apostles, unfit to be
called an apostle, because I persecuted the
church of God."
Now we know why there are no Apostles in Protestantism.
Next, maybe a Prototype Protestant ancestor?
Acts 8:1-3, "Now there broke
out on that day a great persecution against the CHURCH in Jerusalem, and all
except the Apostles were scattered abroad throughout the land of Judea and
Samaria. And devout men took care of Stephen's burial and made great lamentation
over him. But Saul was harassing the CHURCH; entering house after house, and
dragging out men and women, he committed them to prison."
Hmmm, sounds like Saul was the first prototype protestant ancestor attacking the only Church that Jesus Christ founded. It is like what protestants first founded by Martin Luther in 1520 and by many others do in voice and in writings today.
Acts 9:1-5, "But Saul, still breathing threats of slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues at Damascus, that if he found any men or women belonging to this 'Way' (a word used for Christianity at that time), he might bring them in bonds to Jerusalem. And as he went on his journey, it came to pass that he drew near to Damascus, when suddenly a light from heaven shone round about him; and falling to the ground, he heard a voice saying to him, "Saul, Saul, why dost thou persecute me?"And he said, "Who art thou Lord?" And He said, "I am Jesus whom thou art persecuting."
What did Jesus say here?
Saul in his zeal had been mercilessly persecuting the newly founded followers of Jesus Christ who were known as
'the Way' (Acts 19:9,23, 24:14,22) then, and were called Christians at a later and safer time.
Saul is first mentioned in Acts 7:58-59, where he gave his approval for the stoning to death of the first Christian martyr, Saint Stephen. Those persecutions have continued every day for centuries by many different groups and to this very day. The Catholic Church has been attacked for almost 500 years from 1520 to today with protest-ants leading the way.
It reminds me of a never ending relay race where the one in lead tires, ages, and passes his baton on to the upstarts.
It is too bad that the protestants of today do not bother to read genuine historical writings of so many Catholic saints in every century of persecuters of the Catholic Church and what the persecuters final demise was. Start with the Roman Empire the most powerful country in the world at that time which persecuted the Catholic Church for centuries and tell me where it is today? It is long gone since 476 A.D. but the Catholic Church is still here, well over 1500 years later.
Obviously the Roman Empire was fighting against God (Acts 5:38-39) for more than a century and was infinitely more powerful than the fledgling Catholic Church. To repeat myself in order to 'prove' a point again, the Roman Empire is long gone and yet the Catholic Church is still here. Protestants still tell me the Catholic Church fell into apostasy and still cannot tell me when and cannot produce a document of proof. So who am I to believe, protestants who do not have anything of proof of their false charges, or Jesus Christ who has protected His one and only Catholic Church for almost 2000 years as He promised He would?
So who would you trust, Jesus who cannot lie because He is God, or protestants who refuse to tell the truth and who despise His Church and cannot prove anything of what they charge? How many would choose the truth of God?
Mark 10:19, "You know the commandments: 'Do not kill, Do not commit adultery,
Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud, Honor your father and mother.'"
For those who fail to profit from the errors of history are doomed to repeat them again.
Speaking of history, do protestants ever read the Old Testament for the wealth of verses regarding the New Testament?
Have you ever wondered why bibles even have an Old Testament with so many thinking it is nothing but old Jewish history?
In exchanging questions and answers with protestants I have noticed a
wide variance of answers from them
regarding the same mostly Biblical questions. This leads me to believe that they violate this verse:
2Peter 1:20-21, "Understanding this first: That no prophecy of scripture is made by private interpretation. For prophecy came not by the will of man at any time: but the holy men of God spoke, inspired by the Holy Ghost."
The correct interpretation of Holy Scripture has been passed down for centuries to Catholics through Jesus Christ's Catholic Church.
Go Here for a wealth of information regarding the writing of the New Testament, then Here for many centuries of writings from Catholic Church Fathers.
Once saved,always saved:
More than one Protestant has told me, "I know that I am going
straight to heaven when I die". However that remark in reality is the
'deadly sin of Presumption'. He is guilty of a false Protestant teaching, that
is to grab one Bible verse that sounds good and simple and to run with it while
completely ignoring one of the most important basic rules of Bible exegesis, that is of context, context, and context.
Case in point:
The entire Bible is harmonious.There are no errors within it, only 'apparent' errors as seen by those who seek the truth but not by those who have a contrary agenda. Here is the verse that they use mostly to try to justify their false belief in their 'guaranteed' salvation:
Romans 10:9, "For if thou confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in thy heart that God hath raised him up from the dead, thou shalt be saved."
Now if they would only read the very next verse there is a stumbling block therein that is ignored:
Romans 10:10, "For, with the heart, we believe unto justice: but, with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation."
Now let us see what one of the best Bible commentaries ever written has to say about Romans 10:9,
Haydock's 1859 edition:
"Ver. 9. Thou shalt be saved. To confess the Lord Jesus, and to call upon the name of the Lord, (ver. 13.) is not barely the professing of a belief in the person of Christ: but moreover implies a belief of his whole doctrine, and an obedience to his law; without which the calling of him Lord will save no man.
(St. Matthew vii. 21.) (Challoner) --- This passage must be understood like many others of this apostle, of a faith accompanied by a good-will ready to perform what faith says must be practised; as it is required in this very place, that what we believe in the heart, we should confess with our mouth. (Estius)"
Now since we all know that the Bible is harmonous from beginning to end, did you notice that Haydock's steered us to another verse that has more to say regarding Romans 10:9?
Matthew 7:21, "Not every one who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven."
Is that verse a contradiction of Romans 10:9? Not at all. It is merely adding to its context.
Not every verse can contain every condition associated with it for obvious reasons. For one, the fact that other Biblical authors had written regarding the same subject, but from a different point of view and their differences are an addition to the context of the whole subject.
Here are many more verses regarding the 'sin of presumption'.
James 4:13-16, "Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go into
such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and get gain"; whereas you
do not know about tomorrow. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears
for a little time and then vanishes.
Instead you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we shall live and we shall do this or that."
As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil."
Isaiah 13:11, "I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; I will put an end to the pride of the arrogant, and lay low the haughtiness of the ruthless."
Romans 12:3, "For by the grace given to me I bid every one among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith which God has assigned him."
2Timothy 4:3-4, "For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander into myths. "Those verses perfectly describe protestantism exactly as it is today.
Luke 9:23, And he said to all, "If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me."
James 4:10, "Humble yourselves before the Lord and he will exalt
1Peter 5:5, "Likewise you that are younger be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for "God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble."
James 4:6, "But he gives more grace; therefore it says, "God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble."
Philippians 2:12, "Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now,
not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work
out your own salvation with fear and trembling."
Rom 2:4-6, Or do you presume upon the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience? Do you not know that God's kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? But by your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God's righteous judgment will be revealed.
For he will render to every man according to his works."
The Holy Eucharist:
Protests have a cracker and coke for communion. Catholics
have the true Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.
Which would you rather have?
John 6:51-58, "I am the living bread which came down from heaven;
if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread
which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh." The Jews then
disputed among themselves, saying, "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?"
So Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say
to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have
no life in you; he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life,
and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is food indeed, and
my blood is drink indeed. He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides
in me, and I in him. As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the
Father, so he who eats me will live because of me. This is the bread which came
down from heaven, not such as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread
will live for ever."
All non-Catholic Christions please heed what Jesus taught ALL of us. You will NOT receive Him in crackers and coke.
The Old Testament:
Have you ever heard this before?
"The New Testament lies concealed in the Old, and the Old Testament is revealed in the New." Saint Augustine 354-430
Here are three examples from the Old Testament with prophecy that is revealed in the New Testament.
Isaiah 59:19-21, "So they shall fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun; for he will come like a rushing stream, which the wind of the LORD drives.
And he will come to Zion (Israel) as REDEEMER, to those in Jacob WHO TURN FROM TRANSGRESSION, SAYS THE LORD. And as for me, this is my covenant with them, says the LORD: my spirit which is upon you, and my words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart out of your mouth, or out of the mouth of your children, or out of the mouth of your children's children, says the LORD, FROM THIS TIME FORTH AND FOR EVERMORE."
Micheas 5:2, "And thou Bethlehem Ephrata, art a little one among the thousands of Juda, out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be the ruler in Israel: and his going forth is from the beginning, from the days of eternity."
Bethlehem is not so little today.
"For from the rising of the sun even to the going down, my name is great among
the Gentiles, and in every place there is sacrifice (the Catholic Mass), and
there is offered to my name a clean oblation (the Holy Eucharist): for my name
is great among the Gentiles, saith the Lord of hosts."
Go Here for 100 prophecies in the Old Testament that were fulfilled in the New Testament.
God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. I find Numbers 16 to be very interesting. It is about those who did not obey God and what happened to them as a result. It isn't pretty to say the least. It reminds me of the words of Jesus Christ, 'That they be ONE' and not the 30,000+* denominations of protestantism that exist today.
*World Christian Encyclopedia
1. What was it that Saul persecuted in Acts 8:1-3?
It was the ONLY Church founded by Jesus Christ as mentioned twice in those three verses.
2. Then why did Jesus Christ say, "Why doest thou persecute me?", instead of 'Why doest thou persecute My Church'?
It is because His Church is his body and He is the head (Ephesians 5:23).
Whatever happens to the body is registered in the head. Isn't that true?
3. Therefore, whenever someone persecutes the Church which Jesus Christ founded, they are really persecuting Him since His Church IS His Body as well.
4. History repeats itself over and over again. Protestants merely mirror another new Saul.
5. Will Protestants who are the new Sauls ever see the light of truth as he did and become the new Paul? Acts 13:9
Saul went from the extreme left of spending eternity in hell with Satan for the damage he did to the Body of Christ, and then to the extreme right into the arms of Jesus Christ and became at the end, Saint Paul, in Heaven for all eternity.
Hey all 'new Saul' protestants who are still attacking the Catholic Church which is the Body of Christ, take heed. It is not too late for you to become 'new Paul's' simply by ceasing attacking the Body of Christ and joining the Church of truth founded by Jesus Christ.
The Blessed Virgin Mary:
I was once attacked by a protestant who was giving me the Mary riot act. 'Catholics worship Mary', 'Mary this', 'Mary that'. I asked him if he ever read the Bible. He said he had a doctorate. I said 'apparently doctor, you never read the Bible'. So I gave him a Bible lesson on these three verses and asked him if he ever read them before.
Luke 1:46-48, And Mary said, "My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden. For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed." I replied "Doctor, 'Henceforth' means from the time she said it until the end of time. 'All generations' I presume, includes you too. 'Will' is a command and not a suggestion. 'Call me blessed' means just that. Doctor in your tirade you never once called her blessed." He replied with 'Blessed Mary' from that point on.
Another stab at the Blessed Virgin Mary was, 'She was nothing different from any other mother'. I gave him my Father Dwyer's classic retort that he taught us well, 'yes, but what a difference between the Sons'. She is the mother of the creator of the universe in His human nature. What more could any other mother add to that accomplishment?
She deserves our love and respect. She has it from Catholics but why do protestants continue their attacks on her and the Catholic Church for doing so?
Common Sense questions for non-Catholic
There is only one Church in the whole world that was founded by God and as I have shown here it is the only Church that is truly holy, simply because its founder is holy and He keeps it holy as Holy Scripture has taught us that His Church IS HIS BODY AND HAS TAUGHT US:
"I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS, EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD." Matthew 28:20, King James.
That one and only Church founded by God has to be with us today and it is and will last UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD.
That is a promise from God who cannot lie. His one and only Church can be traced all the way back from this very day and through every century almost 2000 years back to its founding by our Lord Jesus Christ. Go Here for much more.
Today there are more than 30,000 separate denominations who call themselves Christian yet each one was founded by a human person who had no authority what so ever to do so. Not one was founded by God which makes them all false.
Now to prove my point, since I have been told by so many that they do not believe anything unless they can find it in the Bible.
SHOW ME IN THE BIBLE WHERE GOD GAVE AUTHORITY TO ANY HUMAN PERSON TO START THEIR OWN DENOMINATION?
I must confess that I could not find a single verse either.
From the very beginning of its founding many tried to destroy the Church that Jesus Christ founded.
First there was Saul, and who confronted him? It was none other than its founder Jesus Christ.
Then came the Romans and what happened to them? In 476 A.D. the Roman Empire, the most powerful force in the world for centuries was destroyed. Then came the Moslems, the Crusades and many wars against Moslems for centuries.
In 1520 along came Martin Luther who broke away from God's Catholic Church and formed protestantism by claiming HIS OWN authority to do so. Obviously he could not find God given authority to do so in the Bible either. Please go to that Luther link for so much more detail about his movement.
Then in 1571 in the miraculous Battle of Lepanto the Moslems were finally defeated.
But again the Catholic Church survived, saved again by Jesus Christ its founder.
One of the biggest errors of Protestantism is their teaching of 'Bible Only'. When Martin Luther broke away from the Catholic Church in the 16th century he lost all but the Catholic Bible. He lost any authority he may have had so he invented the 'Bible Only' theory. He was not satisfied with seven books of the Old Testament so he removed them that had been in it for thousands of years. Now, any non-Catholic please show me where the false teaching of 'Bible Only' is found in the Bible? If you cannot find the verse then please tell me why you tell me that if something is not in the Bible, you will not believe it? Oops I forgot about that Phantom Verse that apparently several have found in the Bible.
While searching for an answer to that one show me also a verse where Jesus told the Apostles to write the New Testament? Why did Jesus come to earth in the first place? He knew He would not be with us long and so in His three years of teaching He formed His Apostles, taught them well, and commissioned them to spread His teaching throughout the whole world via His one and only Catholic Church. As the Apostles died off their batons were passed on to Bishops in every century with the same teaching that the Apostles received from Jesus. The Apostles had no NewTestament to work with to teach from but they did have absolute truth (John 14:6) teaching from Jesus Christ Himself.
The first book of the New Testament was not even written until about 30 years after Jesus died on the cross and the last book, Revelation, was written about 100 A.D.. So in those days 'Bible Only' could have had only the Old Testament.
The true teaching from the mouth of Jesus Christ is directly from Him to the Apostles, to the Bishops, through the centuries and down to all peoples throughout the world (Universal) to this very day by the Catholic Church.
It is no wonder why protestants cannot find a date or genuine historical document to prove their lie of apostasy of the Catholic Church. They cannot provide a document or a date
SIMPLY BECAUSE IT IS A LIE AND IT NEVER HAPPENED.
So protestants say they will not believe anything unless they can find it in the Bible. So now here is your chance to show me 'Bible Only' in the Bible. Remember your very own belief that you cannot believe it if you cannot find it in the Bible.
I cannot find the word 'rapture' in the Bible either. Protestants believe in it but the word itself did not come into existence until the Puritans invented it in about the 17th century.
Matthew 24:11, "And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray."
Hmmm sounds to me like an accurate prediction of Martin Luther and his multitude of protestant mnisters doesn't it?
2Thessalonians 2:10-12, "And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
Revelation 2:2, "I know your works, your toil and your patient endurance, and how you cannot bear evil men but have tested those who call themselves apostles but are not, and found them to be false."
Holy Scripture teaches that Jesus Christ came to earth and founded one Church and promised that His Church would be with us forever. That was almost 2000 years ago so that Church has a name and it is still with us today. Thousands of genuine historical documents regarding that Church were written in every century by many true saints and holy people. Those documents are in existence for anyone to read today. Since it was founded by God who cannot lie, and it is by far the largest and world wide Christian Church and as I have written here it has a name. Please tell me the name of that one and only Church? This is a very simple question with a very simple answer.
Why is it that so many protestants refuse to answer with the name of the Church that Jesus Christ founded?
What do you think that Jesus Christ might think of your refusal to even name His one and only Church?
Do you think He would approve your refusal? I think not as He wants everyone to come to His Church. Acts 1:8
So how could you ever find the true Church if you did not even know its true name?
Ephesians 1:22-23, "And he hath subjected all things under his feet and hath made him head over all the church,
Which is his body and the fulness of him who is filled all in all."
Ephesians 5:23, "Because the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ is the head of the church. He is the saviour of his body."
My but those are pretty strong words directly from Jesus Christ.
So why do protestants attack
"What does it profit a man
if he gains the whole world but loses his soul?" Mark 8:36
"YOU CAN ALWAYS PROVE THE TRUTH BUT YOU
CAN NEVER PROVE THE LIE!"
"One cannot have God for his Father, who will not have the Church for his Mother."
How many protestants can you guess will make it to Heaven by spending
their lives attacking the Body of Christ? Protestants, sadly, have rejected His Catholic Church and in doing so,
the Body of Christ. Mark 8:31, "And he began to teach them that the Son of man must suffer many
things, and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests
and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise
How many protestant lies have you found in this writing where they ignore the truth from the mouth of Jesus Christ?
John 5:37-44, "And the Father who sent me has himself borne witness to me. His voice you have never heard, his form you have never seen; and you do not have his word abiding in you, for you do not believe him whom he has sent. You search the scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness to me; yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life. I do not receive glory from men. But I know that you have not the love of God within you. I have come in my Father's name, and you do not receive me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive. How can you believe, who receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?"
God did not found protest-antism. It was founded by man starting with Martin Luther. God founded His ONE 'UNIVERSAL' Church as unity for the whole world, and not split into more than 30,000 pieces as human persons have done and without any God given authority what so ever to do so.
Why does the word 'protestant' start with the word 'protest'? Protest against who?
Since God's Church is His Body then those doing the protesting are protesting against God. It is as simple as that.
John 10:14-16, "I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. And I have other sheep, that are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will heed my voice. So there shall be one flock, one shepherd."
See! Jesus wants ALL to be with Him in ONE FOLD and not the 30,000+ folds of protestantism. He wants all of protestantism to be in His ONE Fold which is His universal Catholic Church.
"Those who fail to profit from the errors of the past are doomed to repeat them again."
John 10:37-38, "If I am not doing the works of my Father, then do not believe me; but if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father."
For the protestant leaders, ministers, and founders of even more denominations today, first you do not have Biblical Divine authority. There is no verse that says you do. Second, you are fighting against Jesus AND God the Father, and third you are responsible for the salvation of not only your soul, but for all of the souls in your denomination who are not receiving the truth of Jesus Christ, and by the Father, by deliberately ignoring:
"So there shall be ONE FLOCK AND ONE SHEPHERD."
Protestantism has 30,000+ flocks and 30,000+ shepherds, and their number is growing by the day. And they all teach something different from one another. If they all taught the same truth there would be only ONE FLOCK AND ONE SHEPHERD as Jesus Christ taught us. Why is that so hard for protestants to understand and to believe?
Tell me what part of 'ONE' is it that protestants simply do not understand?
Common sense is not so common anymore.
Protestants, sadly, have rejected His Catholic Church and in doing so, the Body of Christ.
Mark 8:31, "And he began to teach them that the Son of man must suffer many
things, and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests
and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise
If I were ever a
protestant, the following Bible verse would scare me to
Revelation 21:8, "But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the polluted, as for murderers, fornicators, sorcerers, idolaters, AND ALL LIARS, their lot shall be in the lake that burns with fire and sulphur, which is the second death."
My reason in writing this post is not to condemn, but to
point out errors of non-Catholics and bring to them the ONE and ONLY truth
in the Bible with the teaching of Jesus Christ. In doing so I
leave it up to you the readers, to decide where you will spend
all eternity after you leave this world. The earliest genuine historical document that I have found © Back to
Ask yourself: Shall I spend the rest of my life in one of the 30,000+ denominations not founded by God, but founded by humans who had absolutely no God given authority (find it in theBible) to do so, or should I go with Jesus Christ and His ONE and ONLY true Catholic Church? That decision can be only yours.
Jesus said, or Bible says: Protestants said, did, or did not receive:
We must be one fold. Formed tens of thousands of folds.
My Church will last forever. His church fell into apostasy, no date or reason.
Authority given to Apostles. No authority given to founders.
This is My Body and Blood. Not given to protestant denominations.
His Body is His Church. His Body was not given to any denomination.
His Church interprets Scripture. Each protestant interprets Scripture as he sees it.
God cannot lie, neither can His Body. Count their lies in this document.
Jude 1:24-25, "Now to him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you without blemish before the presence of his glory with rejoicing, to the only God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and for ever. Amen"
History of the Catholic Church: The First 100 years
that openly mentions the Catholic Church by name.
My purpose in writing this page is to show non-Catholics who tell me that they do not believe anything that cannot be found in the Bible. Well I have certainly included enough verses here to convince anyone that Jesus wants all Christians to be in His one and only Church and not in false denominations which were founded by mere humans who had no authority to do so. There are verses here which say just that.
The 100th anniversary of the Miracle of Fatima is this year on October 13, 2017. Wouldn't it be a great gift to God if many non-Catholics had entered the Catholic Church before then? Come on non-Catholics, open your eyes and finally see that the Bible says you are attacking the Body of Christ, instead of joining Him with love.
May God bless you.
