Does GOD Always Speak the
That is a question I am even ashamed to ask. Yet, believe it or
not, a lot of people either question His Word, or ignore it.
Non-Catholics teach that the Church which Jesus Christ founded in Matthew
16:18, apostatized either at the time of Constantine, or at the time of the reformation. They teach that the Catholic Church of today
is not the Church which Jesus Christ founded. I challenge this false teaching,
and I will use the Word of GOD itself to show where they are
GOD said: Isaiah 59:21...
"This is My Covenant with them
said the Lord; My Spirit that is in thee, and My words that I have put in thy
mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor
out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, said the Lord, FROM HENCEFORTH AND
This is a promise of the perpetual orthodoxy of the Church which
Jesus Christ founded. 'Forever', means just that. It means the Church will
'NEVER' apostatize. How can anyone say it did? Is
this not saying GOD does not always speak the truth?
GOD said: Matthew 16:18...
"And I say to thee, thou art
Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall
NOT prevail against it."
Anyone who teaches that the Catholic Church apostatized, is also teaching
just the opposite of what Jesus Christ said. They are teaching that the gates of
hell DID prevail, are they not?
GOD said: Matthew 28:20...
"...teaching them to observe
all that I have commanded you; and behold, I am with you ALL days, even unto the
consummation of the world."
Jesus Christ said He would be with His Church ALL
days, until the end of time. ALL DAYS means EVERY DAY of EVERY CENTURY, until
the end of time. Yet non-Catholics teach, "yes but, only until the time of Constantine or Martin Luther, or some other
unknown time". They teach that Jesus Christ was less than truthful in this
GOD said: John 14:16-18...
"And I will ask the Father
and He will give you another Advocate to dwell with you FOREVER, the
Spirit of Truth whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor
knows Him. But you shall know Him, because He will dwell with you, and be in
you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you."
There is that word
'FOREVER' again, which non-Catholics either ignore or they teach, "it means
temporarily", until Constantine or Luther comes along.
Okay, since we all know that GOD cannot lie, then
everything He has said is absolute truth. Since in Scripture, He has told us
over and over again, that He will be with His Church 'FOREVER', then the Church
which He founded in Matthew 16:18 is still with us, right?
non-Catholics say it cannot be the Catholic Church, then I must ask them,
"To Name That Church?"
