Thank you Lupe. It does appear to me from what Emcee and Ruben and A Catholic have said here that RCs do believe that one has to have faith in Jesus. But they have add-ons which you and I believe to be unnecessary. Many non-RCs also have add-ons. Do these add-ons send one "straight to hell"? Thank you for making a gentle reply.

I was not born into catholocism, but married into it (did not convert, but wasn't saved at the time either). I go by what I was told by priests and other catholics as well as what I have researched from the catechism. I would not say I am ignorant of their beliefs (i.e. Mary perpetual virgin, praying to Mary, baptism saves, the pope being infallible, etc.).

God Bless!

Moderator, Charismatic Catholics are also Roman Catholics, we simply worship a bit differently and also differently than some Evangilicals who tend to make lots of "noise".

I'm not into the screaming and dancing that some tend to do and which I find theatrical and/or hypocritical if not fanatic.

Moderator - I wouldn't be into screaming in a church service either :)
---A_Catholic on 2/20/06

Debbie, I was born Catholic, attended other denominations but got turned off and joined a Catholic Charismatic Group. In all honesty, what I read on here is not what we go through our group. At times I suspect some of you are talking about another "RCC" and not the one I belong to.
I can assure you that a lot of what some of you write is due to ignorance of RCC matters.

Moderator - Charimatic Catholics can have VERY different beliefs compared to Roman Catholics. At times they may be even more like the Spirit-Filled Christians than Roman Catholics.

David you refer to "Thus the reason of their mass murders of the early christians" Can you give more information about this ... when, where, who, etc?
---alan8869_of_UK on 2/20/06

A Catholic:

There is no reason to be vindictive on this site. The reason the correlation of RCC and paganism is mentioned is because of the traditions that RCC took from pagan roots. If you would open your eyes and research for yourself (i.e. not accept what you have been taught) -- actually RESEARCH pagan traditions, you too will see what we all can see so clearly.

---Debbie on 2/20/06

I can accept disagreements with the RCC but I find associating the RCC with paganism way out of line. I find such comments as ill motivated and don't give them any importance at all. Be fair, be logical and don't be vindictive.
---A_Catholic on 2/20/06

Alan- Study Baal worship, then a history of RCC. You will see the foundation of RCC is Baal worship,-Babylon. The RCC's motive is to control people. Thus the reason of their mass murders of the early christians and their attempt to keep the bible out of the hands of the world population. The RCC took on a "form" of godliness and consider Mary the queen of heaven. The queen of heaven, Ashtaroth (Jud. 2:13)was part of Baal worship. Read Jer.44 Gods thoughts of the "queen of heaven".

Catholic, you asked, "How come no one has associated the Muslim "religion" as the great whore?" I said that many times. We must realize that all of the cults will come together somewhere under some name. It may be Catholic, meaning Universal, or it may be something else. When you examine RCC doctrine and the place of the RCC Pope and Fathers in light of Scripture Truth you will understand why some things are said like they are. That was a nice complement you gave Herb.

Part 1. If you look at v5 of Rev. It says the MOTHER OF HARLOTS. V7,8,9 tells more. v9 speaps of the seven mountains which the woman sits. Rome sits on 7 hills. V8 says the beast that was and is not and yet is. Roam was a great power and was no more but will rise again.

Revelation 17:7-8 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

Once while witnessing to a Catholic, I showed him in the Bible where it says salvation is not by works! The man stopped hesitated and then said," I still believe it is of works" my heart ached for him as it does for Emcee. When a man's heart is blinded he is truly blinded.

Emcee 'Mary plays a very important part in the redemption of Mankind.' Mary's role in this is over. She was a human being chosen for a purpose (a very special one) and fulfilled that purpose. She lived her life, with husband and other children, and died. Mary was the mother of Jesus' earthly body. Very important yes, but she was not co-redemptress of the world. Jesus is our, Mary's, Joseph's and His siblings' Saviour, Redeemer and Lord.
---M.A. on 2/19/06

Roman Catholicism does not restrict itself to either Scripture or tradition. They feel that their authority given them by God gives them free access to create any doctrine or policy they wish. Take for instance, the belief that a good Hindu, Moslem, etc. can be saved if he is sincere in his religion and is a good moral person. This to the Biblical Christian is a salvation outside of any belief in Christ.
---lee on 2/19/06

Emcee-People who are true Roman Catholics do not believe God's word. The RCC is the Great Whore mentioned in Rev. chapter 17. A study on the history of the RCC church and their persecution of Christians will revel this. And where does Mary, the Pope, or any priest fit into 1Tim 2:5? Study the book of Hebrew. The office of an earthly priest was done away with after the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He is our High Priest and makes intercession to the Father for us as we pray to HIM and through HIM.
---jdavidg41 on 2/19/06

Emcee "Mary plays a very important part in the redemption of Mankind" The Bible records that Mary PLAYED a very important, and blessed, part in the redemption of mankind by being the mother who bore His earthly form. It is RCC tradition that she PLAYS a redemptive part, and the way the RCC proves that tradition is by quoting the RCC version of Gen 3.15. But the RCC itself says it changed the original to reflect that tradition!

Emcee ... Have you looked at the Catholic Encyclopaedia and seen what it says about the difference between the CC version of Geb 3.15 and that used by other denominations? It acknowledges that there is no justification for the change from the original, except to justify their tradition about Mary. And yet they call it biblical proof! It seems a little wrong that the RCC should change the prophecy of God, as recorded in holy scriptures, and change its meaning.
---alan8869_of_UK on 2/19/06

Alan::There are contradictions its what you make of it. Catholic version as you have yourself stated "she will crush his head" & others say that; the seed of the woman his heel shall strike your head& your head shall strike his heel.This is not the main Point but is part of the prophecy the everlasting ENMITY is the true prophecy.We need to address this if we want to stay on the side of Right by bringing Glory to God.Mary plays a very important part in the redemption of Mankind.

A Catholic:

Demonizing RCC? Is that how you see it? I have pointed out that the teaching of RCC is more akin to paganism than to God's Word.

I'm sorry that you don't see any Christian attitude in me. I just see brothers & sisters walking towards a cliff & no matter how much I prove my points with scripture, they will not listen.

I experienced RCC myself so whatever I was fed was directly from them.The lies that are taught are offensive and hurtful to the souls of others.

Debbie::What is your concept of a FEW? what ratio would you come up with if all the people of this universe since Geneses.?:1=(2billion)That figure to you seems great but to God is a drop in all the oceans of this universe. We are not learned people by the standard of God, just his children. He does not have to justify Himself to us he says we follow. There is no point in continueing this arguement because we are fanning the flames of one who resides & lives by that code .GODS way is peace & Love.
---Emcee on 2/18/06

ALAN - What is there to answer, since every human transpires to interpret the verses of the written word in different ways. Is a good reason why Jesus said of his church, I shall be with you at all times. He is the shepherd let us follow as sheep & as one flock if we are to defeat satan & his helpers. This is the prophecy. As a friend I speak out of the depths of a heart of a pure love which we all share & serve. If you accept Jesus You have got to accept HIS mother who is HER God.

Moderator - "HIS mother who is HER God" - Are you stating Mary is God.

Mod: "the Gate is narrow" you think about it how many seconds in 6000 years, assuming it takes 1 second to pass through how long would it take 2 billion. But that is not the point & that is not what the statement reminds us. You are assuming that only your type of Christianity will be saved even disregarding the words of scripture so what Road are you walking the wide or the Narrow; Save your own soul not those of RCC.

Emcee and Ruben: If you read all of John 6, it explains how this was NOT to be the literal body and blood of Christ. Paul shed even more light on the topic in 1 Corinthians 11 where it is said that the bread and wine is to be taken in REMEMBRANCE of Jesus.

God forbid cannibalism and He would not go against what was taught in Genesis 9:4 and Leviticus 17:12.

Read Gospel of John Chapter 6 "MY FLESH is real food and My Blood is real drink." Jesus words, I think I will listen to him.

So do RC's think cannabolism is OK as long as it is Jesus they are eating? Do they believe that the bread and wine that Jesus gave at the last supper was actually turned into flesh and blood for them to eat and drink? How can logical thinking people believe such a thing? Why do they fight about it being in REMEMBRANCE of the Lord -- not actually THE LORD they are eating? I guess I just don't understand how RC's can view these "traditions" as anything more than of Satan trying to confuse.

To my Roman Catholic friends....if you truly believe in your heart that when you eat the wafer that you are actually eating the body, soul and spirit of Jesus, than your church has millions (billions) of Christ's...and that's not Biblical.

Mod "How about a dose of common sense? The apostles didn't eat Jesus that day and kill Him. Christ died on the cross" You should know by now that i do not believe that, I am just showing how it is possible to justify the belief.
But if we apply "common sense" as you suggest, the whole Christian faith would fall apart. It is not "common sense" that a father would sacrifice his son to save others from being punished for disobeying the rules.

Moderator - I here hear what you are saying, but from a logic standpoint you are mixing apples with oranges with your example. It is common sense the Apostles didn't start eating Jesus because He died on the cross. Him dying on the cross is a fact which doesn't even take faith to believe.

John 6 53-56 is a powerful support for RC belief that we must eat His flesh. If they take that as a starting point, & regard it as a continuing command to eat the actual flesh, and then other scriptures fit in.

I have always been confused by something...If Roman Catholic doctrine teaches that the bread and wine transform into the actual body and blood of Christ at Communion, and if the parishioners are to partake of these items as an act of obedience, why is it that people only partake of the bread and not the wine? At least that was my experience growing up in the Catholic church. Nobody is partaking of the "blood" except for the priest. Is a half measure good enough according to the RCC?

Mimi, Salvation is not determined by what man believes but by what God has said. A belief in a wrong object brings wrong results. God paid the price for sin thereby giving Him the right to set the course of action for sinful man to be Saved. He not only died but He Resurrected. That is the key. It has been said that practice makes perfect but that is not so. Perfect Practice makes Perfect.

Alan, I believe that many of the rules that the Catholic church teaches are good but the followers don't practice them and practice their own believes. I know if you ask a priest on some issues they will tell you they don't believe in that but what happens many times is that they allow it to go on. In the latin countries Catholics walk Mary through the streets side by side with a skeleton. Many paganistic things are connected to Mary.

I did not say that we are not called to practice communion (as we call it in our church." However it is simply a time of remembrance of the sacrifice of Christ. I Cor 11:25

The Catholic Mass is believed to be. It is a litteral sacrifice of Jesus as essential to God's system of salvation as were the OT sacrifices. In fact it is viewed as a continuation of the OT sacrifical system with Jesus as the sacrifice instead of an animal.

This is absolutely contrary to the teaching of the NT and a blasphemous act that defames the finished work of Christ.
---Bruce5656 on 2/13/06

Salvation is determined by what people believe and depend on. For example, Mormons believe in Joseph Smith, Orthodox Jews believe in G-D alone not Jesus as the Messiah. Catholics are taught to believe in a multitude of outlandish blasphemous traditions of men. But if a person disregards all of man's ideas and clings strictly to what the Bible says,(whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved". Doing this and depending on it achieves it(salvation).
---mima on 2/13/06

Randy what Bruce said was, "Can there be any doubt that the Catholic Church, with its sacraments which are essential to salvation compares directly to the false gospel?"
As a Christian the sacraments are not essential to our Salvation but only to our Obedience. You are not allowed to partake of them (in obedience) if you are not Saved first.
You don't partake to get Saved but because you are Saved.
