Catholic Church False Doctrines (2022)

The Roman Catholic Church has the largest number of followers of all denominations and religions, and yet herteachings and doctrines can be clearly exposed as being false. So many sincere people have been deceivedby this church, which is why we have created this page to expose some of these false teachings anddoctrines.

Catholic False Doctrine 1

The Roman Catholic Church claim that Peter was the 'rock' which the church was to be built on and the pope is his successor.

"The Lord made Simon alone, whom he named Peter, the 'rock' of his Church. He gave him the keys of his Church and instituted him shepherd of the whole flock. The office of binding and loosing which was given to Peter was also assigned to the college of apostles united to its head. This pastoral office of Peter and the other apostles belongs to the Church's very foundation and is continued by the bishops under the primacy of the Pope." (Catholic Catechism)

This is a complete abuse of scripture, just like the rest of the church's teachings. For an indepth look into this and the TRUTH, please seeour page ... WAS PETER THE FIRST POPE?

Catholic False Doctrine 2

The Roman Catholic Church SELLS THE GOSPEL through Indulgences.

"The Church also commends almsgiving, indulgences and works of penance undertaken on behalf of thedead ... An indulgence is partial or plenary according as it removes either part or all of the temporal punishment due to sin. Indulgencesmay be applied to the living or the dead." (Catholic Catechism)

The Roman Catholic Church teaches that after death, everyone who has sinned will go to "purgatory", wherethey will face punishment for their sins. After this they are then allowed into the heavenly kingdom, once theyhave "PAID" for their sins. But with an indulgence, you can pay the church some money and you willreceive an indulgence which will either reduce your time in "purgatory" or erase it all together.By the way, the Vatican was built on indulgences, and Martin Luther exposed the error of indulgences back in the1500's with his 95 Thesis.

Now anyone who knows the Bible will see that there is grave error in this teaching, because not only is the graceof God a FREE GIFT to anyone, but Christ Jesus PAID the FULL PRICE for our sins.

And what did Simon Magus, the Pagan sorcerer try to do? He tried to BUY the gift of God WITH MONEY, and the apostle Peter sharplyrebuked him in very strong words, telling him that his money will die with him!

Ephesians 2:8 ...'For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it isthe gift of God.'

Have you ever heard of a free gift that you had to pay for? So why does the Catholic Church do this? So they can line their pockets withfilthy money. And did you know that the Vatican was built from the selling of indulgences? Yes, it was not only built upon a Pagan burialsite. It was built from SELLING the gospel!

Catholic False Doctrine 3

The Roman Catholic Church claim that Mary was sinless.

"The church has become ever more aware that Mary "full of grace" through God wasredeemed from the moment of her conception. This is what the dogma of the Immaculate Conception confesses ..... Marywas.... from the first moment of her conception ...... preserved immune from all stain of original sin."(Catechism of the Catholic Church, 491)

Not only does the Bible declare that ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23), but Maryherself declared that she needed a Saviour.

Luke 1:46-47 .....'And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God MYSaviour.'

Catholic False Doctrine 4

The Roman Catholic Church claim that Mary is in Heaven and is co-redeemer with Jesus.

"That we may rightly say she (Mary) redeemed the human race together with Christ."(Benedict XV, Inter Sodalicia, 1918)

"In fact, by being assumed into Heaven she (Mary) has not laid aside the office of salvation,but by the manifold intercession she continues to obtain for us the grace of eternal salvation."(John Paul II, Dives in Misericordia, 1980, quoting Lumen Gentium)

Praise God that we have His Word to expose these false and dangerous teachings. There is ONLY ONE Mediator between God andman, and that is Christ Jesus. The Bible also reveals that those who have died in Christ are still in their graves awaitingthe resurrection. Mary is in her grave, NOT in heaven.

1 Timothy 2:5 .....'For there is one God, and ONE MEDIATOR between God and men, the man ChristJesus.'

Catholic False Doctrine 5

The Roman Catholic Church claim that salvation is only possible through herself.

"There is no salvation outside the church (Roman Catholic Church)."(Pope John Paul II, Radio Message for Francisan Vigil at St Peter's and Assisi, October 3, 1981)

"Salvation is to be found nowhere but in the church (Roman Catholic Church), thestrong and effective instrument of salvation is none other than the Roman Pontificate."(Pope Leo XIII, Allocution for the 25th Anniversary of his election, February 20, 1903. (Papal Teachings: The Church,Benedictine Monks of Solesmes, St Paul Editions, Boston, 1962, par. 653)

Again, the Bible exposes this teaching of the Roman Catholic Church as false. Not only that, it is one of the mostdangerous doctrines there is. To say that salvation lies only within the Roman Catholic Church is blasphemous againstthe ONLY ONE who can save us, which is Jesus Christ.

Acts 4:10-12 .....'Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name ofJesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand herebefore you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of thecorner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men,whereby we must be saved.'

Catholic False Doctrine 6

The Roman Catholic Church claim that Sunday is the weekly holy Sabbath day.

"It is necessary to hold Sunday in special highregard in order to remain united to Christ, as it is the day dedicated to the Lord." (Message of PopeBenedict XVI to the Participants in the 9th International Youth Forum (Rocca di Papa, 28-31 March 2007), from theVatican, March 28, 2007)

"People cannot be sanctified except on Sunday, that Christ transferred Sabbathsacredness to Sunday, that only those who keep Sunday belong to Christ, that only on Sunday does the risen Lord makeshimself present among his followers, that only these worship God properly, and that may Sunday regain all itsimportance." (Letter of Pope Benedict XVI to Card. Francis Arinze on the Occasion of the Study Day inHonour of the 43rd Anniversary of the Promulgation of the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, Sacrosanctum Concilium,From the Vatican, November 27, 2006)

What day did God declare was His weekly holy sabbath day? ... Genesis 2:2-3 .....'And on the seventh day, God endedHis work which He had made, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made. And God blessed theseventh day and sanctified it; because that in it He had rested from all His work which God created and made.'

Isaiah 58:13 .....'If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on MY HOLY DAY;and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD.'

Now does the Bible suggest any change in the 4th commandment? No, not a even a hint of change in Sabbath observance is mentioned inthe Old or New Testament. Not only that, but Jesus Himself said that the seventh day sabbath would still be in effect AFTERHis death and resurrection, when He said; "Pray that your flight be not in winter, neither on the sabbath day."(Matthew 24:20). Here He was talking about the destruction of Jerusalem in AD70.

Acts 16:13 ...'And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a riverside, where prayer was wont to be made.'

As you can see above, the apostle Paul and the other disciples also still kept the seventh day Sabbath AFTER Jesus was resurrected.There is not a single hint of the Bible sabbath being abolished or transferredto Sunday. Jesus did not abolishthe sabbath or change it like so many professing Christians believe today. So we either take God's Word and keep the trueseventh day sabbath (our Saturday). Or we take man's word over God and keep Sunday, or no day at all. You choose.

Catholic False Doctrine 7

The Roman Catholic Church teach their members to pray the 'rosary' and other repetitive prayers.

"The word Rosary means "Crown of Roses". Our Lady has revealed to several people thateach time they say a Hail Mary they are giving her a beautiful rose and that each complete Rosary makes her a crown ofroses .... In every apparition, the heavenly Mother has invited us to say the Rosary." (Quoted on a CatholicWebsite)

Members are taught to say the hail Mary and repeat it over and over again. Not only that, if you watch any Catholic TV, andsee the nuns praying, you will see that they send the vast majority of their prayers to Mary, rather than Jesus. So whatdoes Jesus Himself say about repetitive prayers?

Matthew 6:7 ...'But when ye pray, use NOT vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that theyshall be heard for their much speaking.'

The above is just a very small selection of Roman Catholic teachings that are easily exposed as false by readingthe Word of God in the Bible for yourself. There are so many people who have been deceived by this apostate churchand they need to be called out of her. God is calling, comeout of Babylon my people.

Catholic False Doctrine 8

The Roman Catholic Church teach that sacraments are NECESSARY for salvation.

"The Church affirms that for believers the sacraments of the New Covenant are necessary for salvation." (Catholic Catechism)

(Video) Unbiblical stuff the Catholic Church teaches: Mary, Indulgences, Eucharist, Priests, 7 Sacraments

Two things here. Not only does the Bible clearly state that we are saved by grace through faith alone in Christ Jesus, and NOT of works.But these sacraments are not the kind of "works" that even the Bible commends us to do. These are purely Roman Catholic sacramentslike the mass (which is different from Biblical communion), and baptism by sprinkling (again, different from Biblical baptism).

Ephesians 2:8-9 ...'For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God; Not of workslest any man should boast.'

Catholic False Doctrine 9

The Roman Catholic Church teach that the Priests literally bring down Christ Jesus into the bread and wine of Mass.

"It is by the conversion of the bread and wine into Christ's body and blood that Christ BECOMESPRESENT in this sacrament ... By the consecration the transubstantiation of the bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ isbrought about. Under the consecrated species of bread and wine Christ himself, living and glorious, is present in a true, real and substantialmanner ... In this divine sacrifice which is celebrated in the Mass, the SAME Christ who offered himself once in a bloody manner on the altarof the cross IS CONTAINED and offered in an unbloody manner." (Catholic Catechism)

The Catholic Church teaches that the Priests have the power to call Christ Jesus down from heaven and place Himself into the round wafer and wine.There to be offered as a sacrifice over and over again! What blasphemy! The Bible clearly teaches that Jesus Christ offered Himself asacrifice ONCE for all. And yet in the Roman Catholic Church Christ is sacrificed over and over again.

Hebrews 7:27 ...'Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins and then forthe people's; for this He did ONCE, when He offered up himself.'

Hebrews 10:12 ...'But this Man, after He had offered ONE SACRIFICE FOR SINS FOR EVER, sat down on the right hand of God.'

Catholic False Doctrine 10

The Roman Catholic Church teach that the Eucharist is to be WORSHIPPED.

"Because Christ himself is present in the sacrament of the altar he is to be honored with the WORSHIP of adoration... WORSHIP of the Eucharist ... The Catholic Church has always offered and still offers to the sacrament of the Eucharist the cult of adoration." (Catholic Catechism)

Can you see how one false teaching then leads onto another one? That wafer which is offered during mass is NOTHING MORE than a wafer! A piece offood. But this is the important bit to remember. Within the Roman Catholic Church there is Pagan sun worship. You will find sun symbols all overthis church, which is why the "day of the sun" (sun-day) is venerated over thetrue seventh day sabbath (our saturday). And what shape isthis wafer that is used during mass? It is a perfect circle. Another symbol of the sun.

So what is being worshipped in mass? It's certainly not Christ Jesus. No, the leaders of the Roman Catholic Church have deceived their followersinto worshipping the sun!

Catholic False Doctrine 11

The Roman Catholic Church teach that all sins MUST be confessed to a Catholic Priest.

"One who desires to obtain reconciliation with God and with the Church, must confess to a priest ...Confession to a priest is an essential part of the sacrament of Penance."

Acts 13:38 ...'Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man [Jesus] is preached unto you the forgivenessof sins.'

(Video) Seven FALSE Teachings Of The Roman Catholic Cult!

Matthew 6:9-13 ...'Our Father which art in heaven ... forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.'

There is not the slightest hint in the Bible that says we need another mediator other than Christ Jesus (1 Timothy 2:5). And it is veryclear from God's Word that we have DIRECT access to God through Christ Jesus and the only one other than God who can forgive sins isJesus Christ Himself (Matthew 9:6).

So we have yet another blasphemous teaching from the Roman Catholic Church.

Catholic False Doctrine 12

The Roman Catholic Church teach that salvation includes the Muslims.

"The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whomare the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind's judge on thelast day." (Catholic Catechism)

Funny, no mention of Jesus Christ our Saviour there! I'll leave you with one final verse of TRUTH:

John 14:6 ...'I am the way the truth and the life; no man cometh to the Father BUT BY ME.'

For many more blasphemous Roman Catholic quotes and beliefs, see THIS PAGE.

Catholic False Doctrine 13

The Roman Catholic Church teaches the false 3 in 1 'trinity' god.

"The mystery of the Most Holy Trinity is the central mystery of Christian faith and life. It is the mystery of God in himself. It is therefore the source of all the other mysteries of faith, the light that enlightens them. It is the most fundamental and essential teaching in the 'hierarchy of the truths of faith'. The whole history of salvation is identical with the history of the way and the means by which the one true God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, reveals himself to men." (Catholic Catechism, No. 234)

The trinity doctrine denies the Bible truth concerning our one true God, the Father and denies that Jesus Christ is the only begotten literal Son of God. The trinity teaches that the Holy Spirit isa separate being from the Father and Son, whereas the Bible teaches us that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit OF God and OF Christ. It is their own Spirit.

1 Corinthians 8:6 ...'But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; AND one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.'

1 John 1:3 ...'Truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.'

John 17:3 ...'And this is eternal life, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.'

Romans 8:9 ...'But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.'

Galatians 4:6 ...'And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.'

False Doctrines In Christianity Today "I HAVE NO GREATER JOY THAN TO HEAR THAT MY CHILDREN WALK IN TRUTH" [3 John 1:4]

Many well meaning yet mis-taught Christians and others who claim to be Christians are preaching lots of things that sound ‘good’ on the surface but at the root are anything but true.. for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.. Matt 22:14 – “For many are called, but few are chosen .”. Mark 13:20 – “… but for the elect’s sake, whom he hath chosen , he hath shortened the days.”. John 1:12-13 – “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born , not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God .”. 2 Cor 13:5 – “ Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith ; prove your own selves.. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?”. 1 John 5:13 – “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life , and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.”. We see that type of attitude in the woman at the well in John 4:29 “Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?”.. The Bible teaches salvation by God’s grace alone !. So what do you do if you are in a church that preaches any of the above lies?

Encyclical Humani Generis of Pius XII, 12 August 1950

But at the same time it is a matter of regret that not a few of these, the more firmly they accept the word of God, so much the more do they diminish the value of human reason, and the more they exalt the authority of God the Revealer, the more severely do they spurn the teaching office of the Church, which has been instituted by Christ, Our Lord, to preserve and interpret divine revelation.. And as in former times some questioned whether the traditional apologetics of the Church did not constitute an obstacle rather than a help to the winning of souls for Christ, so today some are presumptive enough to question seriously whether theology and theological methods, such as with the approval of ecclesiastical authority are found in our schools, should not only be perfected, but also completely reformed, in order to promote the more efficacious propagation of the kingdom of Christ everywhere throughout the world among men of every culture and religious opinion.. In theology some want to reduce to a minimum the meaning of dogmas; and to free dogma itself from terminology long established in the Church and from philosophical concepts held by Catholic teachers, to bring about a return in the explanation of Catholic doctrine to the way of speaking used in Holy Scripture and by the Fathers of the Church.. Hence to neglect, or to reject,or to devalue so many and such great resources which have been conceived, expressed and perfected so often by the age-old work of men endowed with no common talent and holiness, working under the vigilant supervision of the holy magisterium and with the light and leadership of the Holy Ghost in order to state the truths of the faith ever more accurately, to do this so that these things may be replaced by conjectural notions and by some formless and unstable tenets of a new philosophy, tenets which, like the flowers of the field, are in existence today and die tomorrow; this is supreme imprudence and something that would make dogma itself a reed shaken by the wind.. And although this sacred Office of Teacher in matters of faith and morals must be the proximate and universal criterion of truth for all theologians, since to it has been entrusted by Christ Our Lord the whole deposit of faith - Sacred Scripture and divine Tradition - to be preserved, guarded and interpreted, still the duty that is incumbent on the faithful to flee also those errors which more or less approach heresy, and accordingly "to keep also the constitutions and decrees by which such evil opinions are proscribed and forbidden by the Holy See,"[2] is sometimes as little known as if it did not exist.. Thus they judge the doctrine of the Fathers and of the Teaching Church by the norm of Holy Scripture, interpreted by the purely human reason of exegetes, instead of explaining Holy Scripture according to the mind of the Church which Christ Our Lord has appointed guardian and interpreter of the whole deposit of divinely revealed truth.. It is well known how highly the Church regards human reason, for it falls to reason to demonstrate with certainty the existence of God, personal and one; to prove beyond doubt from divine signs the very foundations of the Christian faith; to express properly the law which the Creator has imprinted in the hearts of men; and finally to attain to some notion, indeed a very fruitful notion, of mysteries.. [7] But reason can perform these functions safely and well only when properly trained, that is, when imbued with that sound philosophy which has long been, as it were, a patrimony handed down by earlier Christian ages, and which moreover possesses an authority of an even higher order, since the Teaching Authority of the Church, in the light of divine revelation itself, has weighed its fundamental tenets, which have been elaborated and defined little by little by men of great genius.. Whatever new truth the sincere human mind is able to find, certainly cannot be opposed to truth already acquired, since God, the highest Truth, has created and guides the human intellect, not that it may daily oppose new truths to rightly established ones, but rather that, having eliminated errors which may have crept in, it may build truth upon truth in the same order and structure that exist in reality, the source of truth.. If one considers all this well, he will easily see why the Church demands that future priests be instructed in philosophy "according to the method, doctrine, and principles of the Angelic Doctor,"[8] since, as we well know from the experience of centuries, the method of Aquinas is singularly preeminent both of teaching students and for bringing truth to light; his doctrine is in harmony with Divine Revelation, and is most effective both for safeguarding the foundation of the faith and for reaping, safely and usefully, the fruits of sound progress.. It is not surprising that these new opinions endanger the two philosophical sciences which by their very nature are closely connected with the doctrine of faith, that is, theodicy and ethics; they hold that the function of these two sciences is not to prove with certitude anything about God or any other transcendental being, but rather to show that the truths which faith teaches about a personal God and about His precepts, are perfectly consistent with the necessities of life and are therefore to be accepted by all, in order to avoid despair and to attain eternal salvation.. It would indeed be unnecessary to deplore these aberrations from the truth, if all, even in the field of philosophy, directed their attention with the proper reverence to the Teaching Authority of the Church, which by divine institution has the mission not only to guard and interpret the deposit of divinely revealed truth, but also to keep watch over the philosophical sciences themselves, in order that Catholic dogmas may suffer no harm because of erroneous opinions.. For these reasons the Teaching Authority of the Church does not forbid that, in conformity with the present state of human sciences and sacred theology, research and discussions, on the part of men experienced in both fields, take place with regard to the doctrine of evolution, in as far as it inquires into the origin of the human body as coming from pre-existent and living matter - for the Catholic faith obliges us to hold that souls are immediately created by God.

Today I present to you a post from Fr. Jerome entitled: Why Pope Francis Is A False-Prophet. Fr. Jerome is a pseudonym.

Fr. … Continue reading "Why Pope Francis Is A False-Prophet"

To the contrary, Pope Francis said this week : “It is not right to convince someone of your faith.” This means Pope Francis is now directly opposing Jesus Christ, and it is time for me to speak up.. But we must remember that there are theological facets to Pope Francis’ heresy that are more disturbing than even Amoris Laetitia , for they strike at the very nature and divinity of Jesus Christ.. The silence of lukewarm-but-orthodox bishops and Cardinals prove that Pope Francis is the greatest false-prophet in the history of the Church.. Canon Law says that any resignation under “substantial error” is “invalid.” This means that Pope Benedict may still be the Pope, even though he apparently denies descending from the throne in duress.. Every one of them with the internet and a decent education stands by Pope Francis’ error in their cowardice to speak out against a deceitfully brilliant Pope now openly saying “It is not right to convince someone of your faith.. The future Pope will do great good, but he will also have to posthumously condemn all the works of Pope Francis—even the less-harmful teachings.. Because when a Pope (or anti-Pope) has been found posthumously guilty of heresy (like Pope Formosus at the Cadaver Synod at the end of the 9th century) 100% the of erroneous Pope’s works must be condemned by the next Pope.. This is not out of spite, but because it is too dangerous for future Popes, bishops, priests and lay people to maneuver through the dead Pope’s waters, considered to be at once brackish and clear.. Faced with a false-prophet such as Pope Francis, we Catholics must always remember that none of this is a deal-breaker against Christ’s promise of the indefectibility of the Church, for the articulated faith and morals of the Catholic Church remain untouched by wicked men, even wicked Popes..

Confirmation is a sacrament of initiation which completes baptism through sealing in the Holy Spirit and anoints the recipient as priest, prophet, and king.. Confirmation is a Sacrament in the Catholic Church in which the one who is confirmed (confirmandi) receives the gifts of the Holy Spirit through the imposition of hand and anointing with oils by the bishop.. Bishops are the original ministers of Confirmation along with other Catholic sacraments (Lumen Gentium 26).. They have received the fullness of the sacrament of Holy Orders.. However, the Bishop can also ‘delegate’ his apostolic authority to perform the sacrament of confirmation to the local priest who is then able to administer the sacrament without the bishop having to be present.. “Like Baptism which it completes, Confirmation is given only once, for it too imprints on the soul an indelible spiritual mark, the ‘character,’ which is the sign that Jesus Christ has marked a Christian with the seal of his Spirit by clothing him with power from on high so that he may be his witness.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1304). Catholic Confirmation is performed with the ordinary minister extending his hand over the one to be confirmed and anointing his/her head with the oil of chrism saying, “be sealed with the Holy Spirit.” The actual Confirmation ceremony is much longer than this, but this is the “meat” of the action.. Confirmation brings Catholics a deepening of baptismal grace and unites us more firmly to Christ.. This messiah happened to be Jesus.. Confirmation sponsors “bring the candidates to receive the sacrament, present them to the minister for anointing, and will later help them fulfill their baptismal promises faithfully under the influence of the Holy Spirit whom they have received.” ( Rite of Confirmation , 5). There are a few requirements to be a Confirmation sponsor.. The Church encourages us to consider our godparents as sponsors for confirmation.. Confirmation’s strong connection to baptism makes one’s godparent to be a natural choice if this person meets the requirements above.. If you do not know someone who meets the criteria above or they are not able to sponsor you then discuss your options with the confirmation coordinator at your parish to see if they can find someone suitable.. The sacrament of confirmation is the way for a Catholic to attain full membership in the Catholic Church.

"But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, . . . "

Since Christ is the Word of God (i.e. the Scriptures, John 1:1, 14; Hebrews 4:12-13; Revelation 19:13), the doctrine of Christ is not just His teaching found in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, but rather, His teaching is the entirety of Scripture.. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God.. Such an appeal to tradition exposes a man to be a false teacher, whose trust is not in God, who is in the flesh (Jesus Christ, John 1:14, Colossians 2:9), but rather in the tradition of men (Colossians 2:8-10; 2 John 7).. In other words, if someone comes to you and doesn't teach that if you go outside of the bounds of the Word of God, characteristically ("abide") teaching contrary to the Word of God, you therefore, don't know God; if they don't bring that doctrine, don't have anything to do with them..

When compared, it should become blazingly obvious that someone who does not expose false teachers, the false teachers of our day who are "among" us (2 Peter 2:1), does not have God (2 John 9)!. If there arises among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams, and he gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder comes to pass, of which he spoke to you, saying, "Let us go after other gods"- which you have not known - "and let us serve them," you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams, for the Lord your God is testing you to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.. Just as God is against those who speak falsely in His name, so are His sons against those who speak falsely in God's name (Romans 8:14).. peddling the word of God; but as of sincerity, but as from God, we speak in the sight of God in Christ .

Last week the Vatican-led Satanic worshipping Genocide and torture of over 500,000 native Canadian children from mainly Catholic Residential Schools across Canada was finally admitted by Pope Francis. This led to a disestablishment and ban of the Roman Catholic Church from operating anywhere in Canada and seizure of Catholic properties...

This led to a disestablishment and ban of the Roman Catholic Church from operating anywhere in Canada and seizure of Catholic properties in Canada, while Diplomats and indigenous groups were seeking expulsion of the Vatican from the UN.. Catholic Church Banned from Canada, Wealth Seized Due to Papal Admission of Genocide of Children in Catholic Residential Schools.. 4 Aug. the National Council of Common Law Assemblies (NCCLA) issued a law in response to the recent public admission by ‘Pope Francis”, Jorge Bergoglio, that his Roman Catholic Church committed genocide in Canadian Indian residential schools.. The NCCLA law authorizes the public seizure of Roman Catholic churches and their wealth as reparations for “centuries of self-admitted crimes against humanity.” Pope admits to Genocide!. The law also legally disestablishes and banishes the Roman Catholic Church from operating anywhere in Canada, and nullifies taxes to the Canadian government as a “proven co-conspirator in genocide.” The law will be used by its Sheriffs to seize Catholic Church properties across Canada in a public campaign commencing on Sunday, September 4, 2022.. Diplomats and indigenous groups also seek expulsion of the Vatican from the UN: “Disestablishing the Catholic Church is a legal and moral obligation on humanity under the Law of Nations.” https://youtu.be/1LCEmqQnla4. The NCCLA law has sparked similar moves in America, Italy, Holland, Australia, and other countries as part of a global “Defund Genocide” movement to punish the Vatican for its crimes and reclaim the wealth stolen by the church.. The Catholic Child Holocaust filled with the Satan worshipping rape, torture and murder of innocent children didn’t happen just in Canadian Residential Schools, but has been found worldwide, along with their International Child Torture and Sacrifice Ring headed by the Ninth Circle Child Sacrifice Cult out of the Vatican.

What was the first / original church? Is the original / first church the true church? Is the church that is the oldest necessarily the most right church?

The ability to trace one’s church back to the “first church” through apostolic succession is an argument used by a number of different churches to assert that their church is the “one true church.” The Roman Catholic Church makes this claim.. Having a pedigree of apostolic succession or being able to trace a church’s roots back to the "first church" is nowhere in Scripture given as a test for being the true church.. Whether a church is the "true church" or not is determined by comparing its teachings and practices to that of the New Testament church, as recorded in Scripture.. The “first church” is the church that is recorded in the New Testament, especially in the Book of Acts and the Epistles of Paul.. The New Testament church is the “original church” and the “one true church.” We can know this because it is described, in great detail, in Scripture.. The church, as recorded in the New Testament, is God’s pattern and foundation for His church.. If most of the core elements of the Roman Catholic Church were not practiced by the New Testament Church (the first church and one true church), how then can the Roman Catholic Church be the first church?. A study of the New Testament will clearly reveal that the Roman Catholic Church is not the same church as the church that is described in the New Testament.. Once people began to study the Bible for themselves, it became very clear how far the Roman Catholic Church had departed from the church that is described in the New Testament.. Scripture never mentions using "which church came first" as the basis for determining which is the "true" church.. What it does teach is that one is to use Scripture as the determining factor as to which church is preaching the truth and thus is true to the first church.. The “first church” and “one true church” is recorded in the New Testament.. That is the church that all churches are to follow, emulate, and model themselves after.. Is the original / first church the true church?
