Idolatry with Mary:
Destructive: praying to Mary, worshipping Mary.
By this sacrament, Christians are supposedly freed from sins committed after Baptism.
Destructive: the Gospel tells us that, were it possible, we would be condemned if we would sin again after baptism, for there exists but one repentance and one baptism to the remission of sin: why would we otherwise receive this sacrament from God in the first place? Reed: rebirth is of incorruptible seed!
Confession to Priests:
False: Destructive: claiming to converse with God on behalf of the confessor to have their sins forgiven. Any person claiming to be Christian yet doing this offends Jesus to such an extent that he is condemned. For Jesus tells you to put faith in him and to pray to him; and not through a priest. For through faith you are saved. Moreover: how many fornicating child molesters could possibly communicate with God? Not one! Yet there are thousands of them in the priesthood of men.
Meaning: an intermediary state after physical death in which those destined for heaven undergo purification.
False: nowhere in the Gospel is this recorded, nor anywhere in the Old Testament, so it could not even be a misunderstanding.
Calling Mary the mother of God: (who then is his father of God?)
False: a responsible church would not use this metaphor at all! Though Jesus is the son of God and Mary, she can never, not even metaphorically, be perceived as the mother of God!
Ascension of Mary and her perpetual virginity: teaching that Mary has been a virgin her whole life and that she ascended to heaven after she died.
False: the Gospel tells us that Jesus had brothers and sisters, and nowhere in the Gospel do we read that Mary ascended to heaven.
Declaring the RKK the foundation of the Gospel:
False: the Gospel, logically, is The Church, and thus the foundation of all the churches and not vice-versa.
Church doctrine being equal to Scripture:
False: scripture is from God and Church doctrine is from men.
Supremacy of Priest over the laity:
False: we are all one in Christ Jesus.
A ritual designed to devout a convert to the Catholic Church, prior to baptising the individual.
False: irrelevant Church nonsense taught to be essential, the church not clearly defining that this ritual is essential for the church organisation and not for salvation, because devotion to Jesus requires: faith, repentance and baptism.
Transubstantiation: translating the metaphor “this in my body and this is my blood” literally, claiming that, after consumption, the bread and the wine become Jesus’ flesh and blood within our belly.
False: nowhere are we told by Jesus that this is the case. Regurgitate or let a doctor extract the substances from your stomach a few hours after you have eaten and drunk the bread and wine, and see: bread and wine!
Repentance of Peter: a misnomer for the events where Apostle Peter thrice denied to know Jesus, just as Jesus predicted he’d do.
False: these acts of Peter have nothing to do with repenting. Peter, like the other Apostles, repented just like you and I. After this ‘denial incident’, Peter was baptised with the Holy Ghost – the latter unlike you and me.
Divinely Inspired priest:
False: a false doctrine that ministers can be declared divinely inspired if they preach what people want to hear, instead of what the Gospel reads. A thousand paedophiles have since been declared divinely inspired until they were exposed to u by the press! We know that every Christian and every minister is divinely inspired, but, like Jesus tells us: you shall know them by their fruit.
Diplomas of men:
False: a false doctrine that ministers require some kind of diploma to teach, while it is clear that all one requires to preach the Gospel is knowledge of the Gospel and dedication. Which degree or diploma was held by the Apostles? None! And none is required. God sends his ministers and only he ordains them to preach his word: inspiring them to preach the truth, telling them in advance that they shall be hated by all men.
Obedience trumps truth: to be found in their practices, such as their priesthood etc.
Inquisition: worldwide persecution by Roman Catholics.
