Is it possible that there are people in
the Roman Catholic Church who are indeed saved? The answer is yes. They
can come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ by reading their Bible,
unfortunately, most so-called Roman Catholics do not read the Bible, they
simply rely upon the priest to do that for them. Consequently, with the
false doctrines promoted by the Roman Catholic Church, how can people be
saved except they read their Bible? And if they do get saved, why would
they want to stay in a false church which upholds so many docrines and
practices that are contrary to the Bible?

Have you been born again? Jesus said
that a person must be born again to see heaven.
Jesus answered and said unto him,
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot
see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be
born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb,
and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a
man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom
of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is
born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be
born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound
thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is
every one that is born of the Spirit. John 3:3-8
Many people claim to be in love with
Jesus and openly acknowledge Him as their Lord and Savior, but does Jesus
really know them, how would He respond?
Not every one that saith unto me,
Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth
the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to
me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in
thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful
works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from
me, ye that work iniquity. Matthew 7:21-23
God desires that everyone repent and
come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ but how can Roman
Catholics do this when they are not told the truth?
I marvel that ye are so soon
removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another
gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and
would pervert the gospel of Christ. 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. But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of
me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I
taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. Galatians 1:6-12
The Roman Catholic
Church's doctrine is riddled with so many errors, it makes the simple plan
of salvation a long complicated
process with no assurance of eternal life and forgiveness of all sin. Baptism,
Mass, Confession, prayers to Mary and the Saints, good works, and purgatory
are all added to faith in Christ. By contrast, the Bible teaches salvation by
faith in Jesus Christ alone. Click here to see
how simple Biblical salvation really is.
I pray for my enemies. I pray
that God will have mercy on you for spreading lies.
Praying for your enemies is admirable
and scriptural, it's what Jesus commanded us to do.
Ye have heard that it hath been said,
Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you,
Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate
you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he
maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on
the just and on the unjust. Matthew 5:43-45
There is just one problem, we are not the enemy; telling the truth does not always make you a lot of friends,
on the contrary, many people will be offended.
Am I therefore become your enemy,
because I tell you the truth? Galatians 4:16
Jesus said that He was the only way to
heaven and many were offended at that time, the offence continues to this
day from that statement.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the
way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
The Catholic church is GOD'S
CHURCH - HIS PEOPLE.
If you look up
the word "cult" in the
dictionary, you will find a very broad definition of the word which could apply
to almost any group of people that worship any person or image or even anyone
that follows Jesus. The dictionary definition is not specific as to what a cult
really is. We all know that man wrote the dictionary with head knowledge, but
the word of God is inspired by the Spirit of God and is our only absolute truth.
cult according to the Word of God is any group of people that worship anything
or anyone other than Jesus Christ, and
believe anything contrary to His Word
as found in the Bible.
To deny that Roman Catholicism is a cult
is to repudiate the reformation and mock the millions of martyrs who died at
The "Christ" of Roman Catholicism is just as false as its "Mary". Roman
Catholicism is an offshoot of Christianity and the largest and oldest
"Christian" cult in the world. In addition, the display of adoration, the
gaudy parade of a mere man as if he were a god, the pandering to
idolatrous worship through bowing down and kissing his ring, the
insistence that he be addressed as "His Holiness the Pope" or "Father" of
all Christians cannot but confirm to any Christian that the Roman Catholic
church is a cult.
Dear reader, I challenge you to find one
instance in the Bible where Peter, the supposed "first pope" allowed
himself to be worshiped in such a manner. On the contrary, you will find
an abundance of humility, where in each instance that people tried to
worship or pay homage to him, Peter would not allow them to do so.

If you have a King James Bible, know
without a doubt that you have the Word of God in your hands. In it resides
clear instructions given to us by the Holy Spirit. Denominations are the
result of man's failures, not God's. Man does not know God's Word; when
man is confronted with truth, he does not change even if he is wrong.
Many people react with hostility to
information that contradicts what they know to be true. The Berean's heard
Paul and Silas preaching in the synagogue, and they were commended for
listening and searching the scriptures as to whether or not the things
that they had heard were true
Study to shew thyself approved
unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the
word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15
All scripture is given by inspiration
of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for
instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect,
throughly furnished unto all good works. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Beloved, believe not every spirit,
but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false
prophets are gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1

Satan wants to DIVIDE AND CONQUOR.
It is true that God desires unity within
the body of Christ, Satan's chief motive is to like a lion, to split
members from the Church and then tear them to pieces when they have been
Be sober, be vigilant; because
your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom
he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the
same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
1 Peter 5:8-9
We are brothers and sisters in
Christ, with some different views here and there. Concentrate and
glorify GOD, WHERE WE ARE THE SAME! Minister to the unsaved!
In order for a Roman Catholic to be
considered a part of the body of Christ (a Christian), they must adhere to
the five fundamentals of the faith which are essential for Christianity,
and upon which we agree:
The Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:1; John 20:28;
The Virgin Birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:27).
The Blood Atonement (Acts 20:28; Romans 3:25, 5:9;
Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 9:12-14).
The Bodily Resurrection (Luke 24:36-46; 1 Corinthians
The inerrancy of the scriptures themselves (Psalms
12:6-7; Romans 15:4; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20).
And those who disagree with any of the above doctrines are
not Christians at all, rather, they are the true heretics. So
disagreements are perfectly acceptable within the confines of
Christianity, because our salvation does not hinge upon doctrines other
than the above five. But if some deny even one of the five fundamentals
mentioned above, they have departed from the faith, "giving heed to
seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils" (1 Timothy 4:1). By denying
or adding to the above scriptural doctrines, they have heaped to
themselves "teachers, having itching ears" (2 Timothy 4:3); thereby
even "denying the Lord that bought them" (2 Peter 2:1). These are
the true heretics, who are preaching "another Jesus", according to
2 Corinthians 11:4:
For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom
we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not
received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well
bear with him.
And later in this same chapter, Paul refers to these people
as the ministers of Satan, in 2 Corinthians 11:13-15:
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers,
transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for
Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no
great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of
righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
So, please - if you take offense to differences in lesser
doctrines, don't think that we are condemning you as unbelievers or
heretics. Nothing could be further from the truth. As long as you hold to
the five fundamentals of the faith, you may join the debate. And together,
we shall reprove the unfruitful works of darkness (Ephesians 5:11).
If you are reading this and
don't know if you have been truly saved, know that biblical salvation is God's free gift to any sinner
who believes that Christ died for their sins and rose again for their defense;
this salvation gives immediate assurance of eternal life. No church ever saved
anyone but Christ can and will save everyone who will come and trust Him as
their Saviour. Membership in a church does not secure salvation for
anyone, but trust Christ and Him alone and you will be saved for all
Would you like to be saved?
