Vatican vs. God

OR

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus - 1 Timothy 2:5


These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. -Acts 17:11

Vatican says "Hence Irenaeus, who lived shortly after the Apostolic age, and who is a faithful interpreter of Apostolic doctrine, always taught that a knowledge of the truth could only be had from the living voice of the Church." Caritatis Studium

The Word of God says Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. -2 Peter 1:20

Vatican says - "The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind's judge on the last day." Reference - Catechism of the Catholic Church #841

The Word of God says - Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. -John 14:6

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. -John 3:16-18

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. -Acts 4:12

Vatican says - that the Catholic Church ("The Church") has the right to pass down traditions, and that these traditions hold as much water as the very Bible itself. reference 1

The Word of God Says - Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye. -Mark 7:13

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. -Colossians 2:8

Vatican says - that the Catholic Church canonizes saints: "On November 12, 1950 Pope Pius XII beatified Marguerite Bourgeoys. Canonizing her this October 31, 1982, Pope John Paul II gives the Canadian Church its first woman saint." reference 2.

"On November 5, 1947 Pope Pius XII beatified Jeanne Delanoue. This October 31, 1982 Pope John Paul 11 singles out for the people of God yet another saint, Saint Jeanne Delanoue." reference 3

"A new miracle attributed to the intercession of Blessed Francis Anthony was approved with the decree of March 21, 1985, by the Holy Father, John Paul II." reference 4

The Roman Catholic Church has a 6-step process that a person must qualify under, for them to be canonized as a saint. You can read their canonization process here.

The Word of God says - Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? - 1 Corinthians 6:2

Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: -1 Corinthians 1:2

Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. -Revelation 14:12

Vatican says - The Vatican repeatedly calls their pope "Holy Father."

The Word of God says - And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Matthew 23:9

Vatican says - "The members of the Rosary Sodality, therefore, do exceedingly well in weaving together, as in a crown, so many salutations and prayers to Mary." reference 5

The Word of God says - After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. -Matthew 6:9

But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. -Matthew 6:6

There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer [necromancy - the black art of speaking to the dead - such as speaking to Mary and "the saints," which are all dead people.] For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. Deuteronomy 8:10-12

Vatican says - "Mary places herself between her Son and mankind in the reality of their wants, needs and sufferings. She puts herself "in the middle," that is to say she acts as a mediatrix [mediator] not as an outsider, but in her position as mother." reference 6

The Word of God says - For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; -1 Timothy 2:5

Vatican says - "After a short pause for reflection, recite the "Our Father", ten "Hail Mary’s" and the "Glory be to the Father". reference 7

The Word of God says - But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. -Matthew 6:7

Let us now compare God's 10 Commandments to the ones used by the Roman Catholic church:

Note: The Roman Catholic Ten Commandments are also used in some Lutheran and related churches. These are NOT the Ten Commandments of the Bible, as shown below.

God's 10 CommandmentsRoman Catholic Church's 10 Commandments
1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.1. I am the LORD your God: you shall not have strange Gods before me.
2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image ... thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them2. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.
3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain3. Remember to keep holy the LORD'S Day.
4. Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.4. Honor your father and your mother.
5. Honour thy father and thy mother:5. You shall not kill.
6. Thou shalt not kill.6. You shall not commit adultery.
7. Thou shalt not commit adultery.7. You shall not steal.
8. Thou shalt not steal.8. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.9. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife.
10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.10. You shall not covet your neighbor's goods.

Notice in the first commandment, that God commands that we are not to have any other gods, but Him. The Roman Catholic first commandment doesn't say that; it says just not to have any "strange Gods." They can now justify praying to the dead Mary and saints (necromancy is condemned in the Bible), even though the Bible teaches that we are ONLY to pray to God. Mary is elevated to a God status, as only God can hear all prayers all of the time and know everything. Mary is not omnipresent, omnipotent, or omniscient. Mary cannot hear or answer the prayers of faithful Roman Catholics. The Bible is clear that we are not to pray to the dead, but only to the one living God.

Furthermore, "strange Gods" doesn't say that Catholics can't worship more than one God. Between praying to Mary, and bowing to her statue, they are worshiping Mary, of which they don't consider a "strange" God, yet they worship her as a God, whether that is outright admitted to or not. Actions speak louder than words:







God's second commandment says that we are not to bow down to idols. Roman Catholics have idols of Mary and "patron saints" that they bow down to. Below is a picture of some idols being "blessed:"


The Roman Catholic Ten Commandments, as taught on their official "Holy See" website at http://www.vatican.va/ is missing the second commandment, which forbids bowing to statues, pictures, etc. Instead, they take the third commandment in the place of the second, the fourth in place of the third, etc. This would leave them with only 9 commandments, so to make ten, they simply take the 10th commandment from the Bible, and divide it into two separate commandments. The Roman Catholic church (as well as some Lutheran churches and some others) actually has 9 commandments, but they break up one of the commandments into two, so that it looks like 10 commandments.

This is forbidden in GOD'S second Commandment:

Who is the Saviour? As you may already know, the first prophecy of Christ in the Bible is Genesis 3:15, where we are told that He will be born from a virgin, the seed of a woman. Now take a look below:

Vatican says - "I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel." - The Roman Catholic version of Genesis 3:15 Reference - The Roman Catholic Douay-Rheims Bible

The Word of God says - And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Vatican says when one partakes of Communion (they call it the Eucharist) that person must believe that they are literally eating Jesus’ very body, and drinking His very blood. "by doing so they signified that all who eat the one broken bread, Christ, enter into communion with him and form but one body in him.[146]" Catchesim of the Roman Catholic Church

The Word of God says And when he [Jesus] had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. -1 Corinthians 11:24-26.

Jesus could not have been instituting the literal eating of His flesh, and the literal drinking of His blood, else He would have been eating and drinking Himself as well, and let us not forget that He was sitting right there.

"And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst." -John 6:35

If the Communion is the literal eating of Christ's flesh, and the literal drinking of His blood, then it must also be true that when one comes to Jesus, one will no longer have need of any food or drink. Obviously, the above is spiritual, not literal. The same is true with The Lord's Supper. Jesus explains that to us, after telling a crowd of people that they must eat his flesh and drink his blood. He said:

"It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life." -John 6:63

Vatican says "At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. This he did in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until he should come again ...'"[133]" Catchesim of the Roman Catholic Church

The Word of God says When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. -John 19:30

Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he [Jesus] did once, when he offered up himself. -Hebrews 7:27

For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. -Hebrews 9:24-28

By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man [Jesus], after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; -Hebrews 10:10-12

Vatican says "I do not believe that they are passing personal judgment on these priests, but what they are saying, it seems to me, is that they want celibate priests who can dedicate their whole lives to the Lord and to his people. No other commitment will do." Celibacy: Fidelity to one’s priestly identity
and
"1. The law of abstinence forbids the use of meat, but not of eggs, the products of milk or condiments made of animal fat." - Paul VI on Abstinence

The Word of God says Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. -1 Timothy 4:1-3

The Most Important Doctrine of all is This:

The Word of God says And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. -John 8:32

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. -John 14:6

Roman Catholics: a call to action...

The Vatican and the Bible say different things. The Vatican and Roman Catholic Church are made of up people. Will you follow them, or will you follow the Lord and His Bible? You cannot follow both the teachings of the Bible and that of the Vatican, as they teach so many things adverse to one another. Trying to follow both is akin to being against abortion, and at the same time, paying for the abortions of people who can't afford one, as a charity.

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served ..... in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. -Joshua 24:15

Comments from a few Readers

I have followed you on and off for quite some time now. You were the very first blog I believe I ever read. I was raised Catholic, and was saved and came to Jesus as my Savior at age 21. I am so very glad you wrote this, it is something I have struggled with for 11 years - I am now 32. I have so many of the catholic teachings that I 'mistake' and then must scour my Bible to ensure I am teaching my children the right path. I just wanted to say THANK YOU! I will be printing this out and putting it in my binder as my daily reminder. It is beautiful! Brought me to tears and I wanted to say Thank You again. -Leagh

Thank you for your in-depth blog. I was incarcerated in Catholic school for 7 years, and when I was paroled, I felt that I was good enough to get into heaven. I never joined the faith, but I was heavily influenced(indoctrinated).
When I was 32, I became a true believer and have been a Christian for 10 years. Praise God!! I am amazed at the differences - some seemingly subtle - in the Catholic Bible vs. the KJV. I never even realized that the 10 Commandments were different and that should be a no- brainer. The Genesis reference to the seed/head/heel blows my mind. Satan is the author of confusion. Amen. I admit I double checked some of what you wrote because I am from the show-me-state,:-) and as usual, you are spot on.
-Carol

I love it when you post things like this. Thank you so much. I was raised Catholic, and what you are speaking of was pounded into my head as a child. I was taught that I couldn't read the Bible on my own; that only my priest could understand it "correctly". I was taught that Mary is "right up there" with Christ, and that praying the Rosary was just as important as any prayer - and that praying repetitiously (sp?) was the only way to get to Heaven. Of course, that was in addition to confessing my sins to my priest. I left the Church when I was 18, and didn't claim any religion for quite some time. After I had my daughter, I felt that something was missing from my life. I found your blog, was saved, and am studying the Bible, with tons of help from you. And the rest is history. Thank you for all you do. -Kristin

Just a brief note, I am a missionary in Peru, a very traditional Catholic country. My wife showed me your blog comparing Catholic teaching and Biblical doctrine. It was very well done. Just one note, the word "Eucharist" is not a Roman Catholic word, it is the literal English transliteration of the original Greek used by the apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 11. The word in Greek is eucharisteo and it literally means "good grace" or thanksgiving. Many Biblical churches around the world, especially in the East still use the word in various forms for Communion.
Thank you for all the work you have done and are doing. I am sure that God will use your dedication, research, and obvious love for Him and His word to draw you closer to Him and to be a blessing to many people.
May God richly bless you and yours
-Mike


Build Your Foundation on the Rock of Salvation

"He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great." -Luke 6:48-49

"The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation." -2 Samuel 22:47

"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." -John 8:32

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." -John 14:6

The terms "Christian" and "personal relationship with Jesus Christ" have been bantered around so much, that for many people, they have lost their original savor. What is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ? Is it going to church? Is it being a "good person?" Is it via doing certain rituals, or following certain traditions? No, it is so much simpler than that.

Jesus says:

"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." -Revelation 3:20

Let Jesus into your heart and life. Put your faith and trust in Him, and in Him alone.

Why did Jesus Christ come to this earth? He came to pay for our sins. Have you ever broken any of the Ten Commandments? Did you know that Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount that just looking at someone with lust in your heart is the same thing as committing adultery in your heart?

Many people will say I'm a good person. Sure, I've stolen a few paper clips in my time, and I've told some lies, but I've never killed anyone, so I'm good enough for heaven. Don't be so sure. Have you ever felt hatred toward someone? If so, then you are guilty of committing murder in your heart:

"Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him." -1 John 3:15

If you have stolen, lied, lusted after someone, hated someone, loved someone or something more than God, etc., then you have broken at least 5 of the Ten Commandments. Do you really think you'd make it to heaven? Not according to God's Word:

"Know ye not that the unrighteous {sinful} shall not inherit the kingdom of God {or go to heaven when they die}? Be not deceived: neither fornicators {sex outside of marriage, or pre-marital sex}, nor idolaters {loving something or someone more than you love God}, nor adulterers {physically, or in the heart}, nor effeminate {cross dressing}, nor abusers of themselves with mankind {homosexuality}, Nor thieves {even stealing a pen or paper clip makes you a thief}, nor covetous {inordinately desiring wealth or things}, nor drunkards, nor revilers {one who assails with abusive language}, nor extortioners {blackmail, or wresting anything from anyone via force}, shall inherit the kingdom of God." -1 Corinthians 6:9-10 {words in curly brackets are my notes}

But there is good news:

"And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God." -1 Corinthians 6:11

We are all sinners:

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" -Romans 3:23

Even Mary, the woman chosen by God to be a vessel that would carry Jesus in her womb, was a sinner, and in need of a Saviour:

"And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour." - Mary said this in Luke 1:47. Only sinners need a Saviour, and Mary also accepted Jesus Christ as her Saviour.

We are all imperfect, fallible sinners:

"This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." -1 John 1:5-8

The blood of Jesus Christ is what cleanses us from all sins. Jesus came to this earth to die to pay for our sins. You see, Leviticus tells us that 'the life is in the blood,' and that it takes spilt blood to atone for sin.

When we choose to truly believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, and to live our lives for Christ, then Christ's spilt blood cleanses us from our sins:

"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." -Isaiah 1:18

Jesus tells us this:

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." - Jesus said this, in John 3:16-18

Paul gives us a simple "step by step process" on how to be saved:

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed." -Romans 10:9-11

Jesus is our one and only mediator:

"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;" -1 Timothy 2:5

Jesus is our High Priest:

"Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." -Hebrews 4:14-15

We are to follow the Lord and the Bible, not traditions of man:

"But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?" -Matthew 15:3

Jesus is God:

"And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory." -1 Timothy 3:16

If Jesus isn't the Lord of your life, then I hope that you will let Him into your heart and life this very moment.

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." -Romans 5:8

Have you built your foundation on the Rock of Salvation?

Jesus is the way. If you would like to receive Jesus into your heart and life, then let Him know. Pray to the Lord, telling Him that you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, and that you believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay the death penalty for your sins. Tell this to God in your own words, from your heart.

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." -Romans 6:23

Believe, and Receive:

"In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise" -Ephesians 1:13

When you believe on Jesus Christ, you receive the Holy Spirit. You are sealed as a child of God.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ into your heart and life as your Lord and Saviour, and you believe that Jesus died on the cross in your place, to pay the death penalty for your sins, and that Christ rose from the dead three days later, and you are ready to let Him lead your life, and you will live for Him, then you are saved, and born again.

You are now a saved Child of God, with the Holy Spirit living within you. Dedicate your life to the Lord, and live for Him. Please get a King James Bible and turn to the Gospel of John. That is the fourth book in the New Testament. If you don't have a King James Bible, then you can read it for free, online - here.

After you've read the Gospel of John, go on to read Acts, and then Romans. These three books will bring you through the Gospel, the early church, and basic Christian doctrine. After you've read these three, then turn to the beginning of the New Testament, and read it all the way through. After that, read both the Old and New Testaments.

You should also follow the Lord and get baptized in water. A Believer's Baptism doesn't save you. Only faith in Christ saves you. A Believer's Baptism is an outward showing of your salvation. It symbolizes you being born again. When you are lowered under the water, it shows you dying to your old self, and when you are raised up out of the water, it symbolizes you being born again, as a new creature in Christ. This is called a Believer's Baptism, because, according to the Bible, a person is supposed to get baptized after they have believed on Christ. Anyone who was "baptized" before having faith in Christ just got wet - nothing more. You don't need to find a church to get baptized in. Any born again Christian can baptize you in any acceptable body of water - even a public swimming pool.

Find or start a good home church. Here is more information on Home Church, and why you should home church, or find one to join - HouseChurch.org. If you can't find or start a home church in your area, then look for a Family Integrated Church, an Independent Baptist church, or look in your phonebook for a nearby Baptist church.

Immerse yourself in the Bible. The Bible is God's love letter to you. It is also your Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.
