Catholic Truths Audio only | Flash version
I am a former Roman Catholic, who was changed by reading the Catholic Bible. At one time I wholeheartedly believed Roman Catholicism and its claims that Jesus founded the Roman Catholic Church in 33 AD upon Peter, the first Pope and all others belief systems were inferior at best.
A Roman Catholic also believes in apostolic succession and papal infallibility, when the Pope (whom they call the Holy Father) speaks ex cathedra. Roman Catholicism believes the Bible to be the word of God, but places their Sacred Tradition on an equal par with (or even above) the written word of God. They believe in getting born again, but to them that occurs when an infant is sprinkled, which they call water baptism. (Such is their version of a born again Catholic.) They claim to receive Christ, but they think such happens at communion when they receive into their mouths, what they were told is the body of Christ in wafer form at communion. They call that the Holy Eucharist and swallow it into their stomachs. They say we are saved by grace, but to them that means salvation comes through their sacraments.
The Mary of Catholicism is prayed to, honored and venerated, but that is just a small part of how devout Catholics view her. To them, she is their Life, Sweetness and Hope, and they openly declare such in the Rosary's Hail Holy Queen prayer. So how important is the Rosary to Catholics? Catholicism states the Rosary is the epitome of the whole gospel. The Mary of Catholicism is also the Refuge of Sinners, Queen of Heaven, Mother of God, and she holds hundreds of other titles and exalted positions. Among the most revealing, Catholicism says she never sinned, is co-Redeemer with Christ and the Mediatrix and Dispenser of ALL GRACE. These titles and roles should silence all who try to downplay how Catholicism (since Vatican Council II) views their fabricated Mary. Therefore, for many Catholics it is Jesus or Mary as the one to trust in for salvation! If that isn't enough, Catholics are taught to pray to Mary at the hour of their death, and in the Fatima apparitions she is supposed to be the way to God as well as our refuge. Many Popes Have Openly Acknowledged Their Trust In Mary For Their Personal Salvation! Besides all of that, Catholicism has elevated Alphonsus Liguori to sainthood and also made him one of their several dozen doctors, yet he was wildly heretical about the mythical Mary of Catholicism! How any religious system could declare such shows the depth of darkness found within their leaders. The Biblical evidence shows Catholicism has fabricated their Mary to a lethal degree. Catholic history shows their view of Mary has evolved over the centuries, little by little, drifting further and further from the truth.
With nearly 1 billion people around the world embracing Roman Catholicism and their unique distinctive doctrines (Rosary, transubstantiation, Papal Infallibility), we all need to know, what that religious system teaches and how that compares to the word of God. The following Bible-based teachings should prove to be a great blessing for all who earnestly want to know the truth of God. Though I am a former Roman Catholic, more importantly I am now a Bible-defined Christian and a new creation in Christ, who has been changed by the power of God after I learned the truth as written in Scripture and acted upon that truth. The true plan of salvation, which sets one free from sin addictions is only found in the Bible! If you are a Catholic, for your own sake, carefully verify the following materials and change accordingly. Your eternal destiny depends upon it. God bless you all.
Dan Corner, former Roman Catholic, would like to debate any Catholic apologists or theologians on the subject of Mary's role in salvation according to the Scriptures.

The Present-Day Official Teachings Of The Roman Catholic Church
Vatican Council II, the most recent Roman Catholic Council, which closed on December 8, 1965, is the current official stand of Roman Catholicism. These statements can be verified by consulting volumes 1 and 2 of the book, Vatican Council II printed by Costello Publishing Co., Northport, New York. Austin Flannery, O. P., is the general editor and each volume contains the Nihil Obstat and the Imprimatur.Vatican Council II "Proposes Again" The Decrees of TrentMany people in our day, decades after Vatican Council II, wrongly think the Catholic Church is changing its teachings.

However, the meaning of the Mass today is identical to its meaning in the days before the dawn of the Protestant reformation.Virginity Of Mary OR La Virginidad de Maria (Espanol)Among those who agree that Mary was a virgin, when she gave birth to the Lord Jesus, there arises a controversy, that being: Did she stay a virgin after Jesus was born?

Of all of them, Mother of God is one of the most common.Papal Infallibility OR Infalibilidad Papal (Espanol)
Papal infallibility is one of the great differences between Catholicism and Protestantism. Very few seem to be aware of the awesome implications of this Catholic dogma. Hopefully, this brief summary will illuminate them.John 6:53 and The Eucharist OR Los Catolicos Romanos y la Comunion (Espanol)
Catholicism equates Jn. 6:53, "I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you" to communion, and thereby logically deduces that one must have it for spiritual life (or salvation).St. Peter's Primacy and Mt. 16:18 OR
El Primado de San Pedro y Mt. 16:18 (Espanol)Nearly a billion people around the world believe that St. Peter was the first pope, the chief of the apostles, and was given the "keys" to the Kingdom. The chief reason is the way Catholicism interprets the following verse: "And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it" (Mt. 16:18).The Real Blessed Mother of Jesus, MaryMany non-Catholics have never really studied Mary with admiration. Let's take a look at the real Mary of the Bible.Fifteen Promises of the RosaryWhat we are being told is these 15 promises came through a vision of Mary that the Catholic Saint, Dominic, and Blessed Alan received in the 13th century. These promises which came from the Mary of Catholicism (which is not the Mary of the Bible) are for all who faithfully pray the Rosary.Pope John Paul II Gets The Skull And Crossbones AwardCertainly, one sure way to know the official position of Roman Catholicism on Mary, besides going to Vatican Council II and The Catechism of the Catholic Church, is to go to the pope himself.Why Return To Catholicism?Why have people been returning to Catholicism?

These objections are somewhat typical and the best answers many Catholics can give. Afterwards are my comments.Do Catholics Really Pray TO Mary?As a former Roman Catholic, I have noticed over the years how various cults tend to deny, at times, their own teachings that they cherish. It seems they do this to help make their religion seem more Christian and acceptable than it actually is, especially when conversing with a possible convert or one that has influence. It is the same way with Catholicism!Some Revealing Catholic Names, Titles and Prayers To MaryJust how important is Mary to many Catholics and Catholicism as a whole? These titles reveal the answer!The Immaculate Conception of MaryThe Immaculate Conception is a Catholic term that many have heard of, but few are informed about. Wrongly, many think the immaculate conception refers to Jesus' conception. The truth is this 1854 Catholic proclamation states that Mary was immaculately conceived and redeemed in her mother's womb and remained sinless her whole life through.Pope John Paul II Promoted By Non-CatholicsIn harmony with our apostate day there are different influential so-called Bible teachers describing the deceased Pope John Paul II in such a way that the uninformed might wrongly think he was a great Christian leader.The Fatima VisionsAccording to the Catholic church, the Virgin Mary appeared at Fatima, Portugal numerous times in 1917 to three little shepherds named Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta. Since the Roman Catholic church has endorsed and fully accepted these visions as being from God and they have in turn affected millions of people over the years by their messages these are very important Marian apparitions.Jesus or MaryThe Roman Catholic church has fabricated a Mary, which in many cases is a carbon copy, a very close resemblance or an exaltation of her to the point of canceling the Lord Jesus out of what he has uniquely accomplished for us.When Mary sinned and became an unbelieverA hidden and shocking truth about Mary, the Mother of Jesus, is what you are about to read for yourself from the following Scriptures.Pope Benedict XVI reveals true Catholic beliefsMany in our day, since Vatican Council II, have a dangerously wrong view of the beliefs in Roman Catholicism.Ten Areas of Deadly Deception Among CatholicsIf you are acquainted with the teachings of Roman Catholicism and the message of the Bible, you are aware of the irreconcilable differences between the two.Catholic Leaves ChurchRead the personal testimony of a former Roman Catholic lady who found truth and salvation in the Lord Jesus and left Catholicism.Papal Salvation Through MaryIn our day, part of the problem with false doctrine is to get it to reveal itself clearly. By this I mean, that whatever false religious system we are talking about, often it is hard to get the people in the know to admit what they really believe. By denying or modifying their real beliefs the deception is harder to refute and precious souls remain endangered. The evidence presented here is POWERFUL! (If you happen to be a former Roman Catholic, pass these truths on to others.)Anathemas--the True and the False (text) | (video)One is doomed to eternal condemnation in hell if he is anathematized. There are true and false anathemas. Which should the Christian be concerned about? As a former Roman Catholic, I Dan Corner, have zero concerns about the false anathemas placed on me by Roman Catholicism.The Eucharist (text)Here is an actual email from a Catholic on the importance of the Eucharist (Catholic communion) to her.

Many, including Roman Catholics, have been taught the wrong answer.Infant Baptism: Is It Christian?There are no Scriptures that show infants being baptized or a command suggesting this.Comparing 'The Church' With 'The Church'Catholicism contrasted with Mormonism100 Biblical Names and Titles of ChristThe primary message spread by the Lord Himself and his followers was to go directly to Jesus Himself, place a submissive-obedient faith and trust in him and continue [endure] to the end for salvation.

Each refers to yet another important place or position that Jesus holds in God's plan for man's salvation.Christian UnityIn our day, we hear much about unity.

While many Roman Catholics since Vatican Council II will deny this, nonetheless, this is still their own clear doctrine set forth by Pope Boniface VIII in his Bull, Unam Sanctam in 1302. The following is what he wrote ex cathedra.The Mary of Present-Day Catholicism
Much confusion exists regarding the beliefs of present-day Catholicism, especially since Vatican Council II. Since that Council, the Catholic church copyrighted in 1994 their doctrinal thoughts in a volume entitled, Catechism of the Catholic Church. This article is an eye-opener regarding their teachings on "Mary."Mary Devotion Among ProtestantsA Christian responds to these teachings.Present-Day Catholicism According To Vatican Council IIA former Roman Catholic responds to these teachings.Mother Teresa
There cannot be deception apart from a deceiver and therefore there cannot be counterfeit Christianity apart from a counterfeit Christian. One of the clearest examples of a counterfeit Christian on today's scene is Mother Teresa.Miracles--Two SourcesWhen one reads through the book of Revelation, he can easily see that the terminal generation of this age will see and/or personally experience the effects of war, famine, martyrdom, gross sin and deceit through Satanic miracles!
