Calling yourself a Christian doesn't make you one. Hitler called himself a Christian, but did he follow the teachings of Christ? The Catholic church
changed the Sabbath to Sunday, did away with all the levitical holy days that were kept by Christ and the Apostles (even after his death), and put a
"christian" spin on pagan days of reverence. Look into the days the Catholic church both celebrates and gave to the modern "Christianity"
(Christmas, Easter etc), and discover their pagan origins. The very head of their church takes a title that Christ himself said belongs to God only
(Pope=papa=Holy father), even their priests take on the title of "father"...
Matthew 23:9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
Not everyone how claims to be a Christian or to be following Christ is actually doing so....
MATTHEW 7:21 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
22 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
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
How do you who is a follower of Christ, and therefore a follower of his Father, Almighty God?
"And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am the LORD your God" Ezekiel 20:20.
What has and still does the Catholic church have to say about that? They freely admit they have taken the authority upon themselves to change the law
"The Sabbath, the best known day of the law, was changed into the Lord's day. These and others have not ceased because of instructions received from
Christ, (because he himself says, I have not come to destroy the law, but to fulfill it), but because due to the authority of the church they have
been changed." Archbishop of Rheggio, Sermon on 1-18-1562, Mansi XXIII, p. 526
"The Sunday is a Catholic institution, and its claim for sacredness can be defended only on Catholic authority...In Holy Scripture from the beginning
to the end we find not one single text which justifies the transfer of the weekly public worship service from the last to the first day of the week."
Catholic Press, Sidney, 8-25-1900
"Nowhere in the Bible is it stated that worship should be changed from Saturday to Sunday. The fact is that the Church was in existence for several
centuries before the Bible was given to the world. The Church made the Bible; the Bible did not make the Church." Things Catholics Are Asked About,
by Martin J. Scott, 1927 ed, p. 136
"We celebrate Sunday instead of Saturday, because the Catholic Church has transferred the sacredness from Saturday to Sunday at the council of
Laodicea in the year of 364 AD." The Converts Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, from P. Geiermann, the work of Pope Pius X, on 1-25-1910
"Sunday is our mark of authority. The church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact." The Catholic
Record, London, Ontario, September 1, 1923
"The observance of Sunday by Protestants is an homage they pay, in spite of themselves, to the authority of the (Catholic) Church." Plain Talk About
the Protestantism of Today, by Monsignor Segur, p. 213
"But the Protestant mind does not seem to realize that in...observing the Sunday... they are accepting the authority of the spokesman for the church,
the pope." Our Sunday Visitor, Catholic weekly, Feb. 5, 1950
"Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change was her act... a mark of her ecclesiastical power and authority in religious matters." Office
of Cardinal Gibbons, through Chancellor C. F. Thomas, Nov. 11, 1895
