OK Im going to say what I believe in accordance to the bible...Yes I know I will probably take some heat for it But here goes..
The INSTITUTE of the Catholic Church is the "spirit of AntiChrist"..I DID NOT say the pope was the AntiChrist. And Im not talking about the honest
people who IMO blindly follow after it..But I will try to lay out my case as best I can .
1. The AntiCHrit will come speaking Blasphemies..One is John 10 says it is blasphemy to claim to be equal to GOD ( except for Jesus to those of us
who believe) The Catholic Church is FULL of FALSE WRITINGS claiming the Pope is GOD..
"The Pope is of so great dignity, and so exalted that he is not a mere man, but as it were God. and the vicar of God." -Ferraris Ecclesiastical
"The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in Heaven and earth." Pope Pius V, quoted in Barclay, Chapter XXVII, p. 218, "Cities Petrus
Bertanous"."We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty" ...Pope Leo XIII Encyclical Letter of June 20, 1894
AND WAY to many to post here (SEE link below)
2. The NT is full of scriptures on HoW TO PRAY. TO THE FATHER IN THE NAME OF JESUS...NOWHERE IN THE NT does it say
to pray to MARY....book of John chapters 14,15,16 Also the Lord's prayer is an obvious one...OUR FATHER who aRT IN HEAVEN...
3. Mary the mother of Jesus has been declared BY THE CATHOLIC CHURCH as the QUEEN OF HEAVEN...this is IMO so bizarre..In the OT the queen of heaven
was ISHTAR Jeremiah 7:18 The children gather wood, the fathers kindle fire, and the women knead dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven.
And they pour out drink offerings to other gods, to provoke me to anger.
also Jeremiah 44:15-25
I would HIGHLY recommend reading this website for a comparative analysis of MARY and BIBLE scripture..very detailed
examination of Mary worship that I cant fit here.
There are Catholic bibles that have REPLACED the scriptures that speak of Jesus with Mary's name...such as No one comes unto the Father but by (Mary)
should be ME (Jesus) This study of Mary Worship is sooo vast please see links for further info.
4. The AntiChrist also changes God's appointed times and laws... It was Constantine who FORBID the christians to observe the
Jewish feast days ( God declared these HIS HOLY DAYS and said He would come and sup with us) because the Jews were in
defiance of the ROman Empire at the time. Also the Sabbath was changed to Sunday since Constantine WAS A SUN GOD
WORSHIPPER TILL THE DAY HE DIED. This can be confirmed in his symbols, coins, writings, ect ( strangely he did believe in Jesus
I understand) ALSO, He substituted Easter for Passover ( direct defiance of God's word) and Christmas for Hannaka (which is NOT
a biblical feast but a historical one)
There is so much more but I think this gets my point across.. Im NOT trying to cause desention with this post BUT the
bible says to STUDY to SHOW YOURSELF APPROVED. I think people are buying into a lie without holding those lies up against
what the word actually says...I found a couple links I will post...I can NOT say I agree totally with what is written
because I have not read them thoroughly but I think there is some very important info to be found here.
