  1. Is the god of rome and romanism the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob?
    Is the catholic christ, Jesus of Nazareth?

    Does catholicism teach that the god of islam is the same as their god?
    What about the god of mormonism? Or the episcopalians?
    Or one of the elohim of raëlism? Or the gods of the hindus?

    If not the same — then what happens to these religions in the end time?

    Will they all be headed by the false prophet? Is that the pope? …..

    • at this point i still believe the Holy Spirit resides in the catholic church. He is not happy though and is warning those in charge. i believe those are deaf ears and hardened hearts. they let satan in during those simultaneous ritual sacrefices. the spirit of ecuminism will gather all the various pagan/luciferic religeons under the vatican roof. at that point the HS leaves, or His leaving allows such a thing to happen. perhaps a rapture will happen and we leave with Him? one can only hope!! time is soooo short!!!

    • Mark how can the Holy Spirit reside in an idolatrous religion? The whole belief system in that church is Apostacy, it’s false doctrIne to the core, always has been.

    • The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Holiness and guides us into Truth. You cannot practice Roman Catholicism without sinning. The Holy Spirit will never lead one to sin. You can say that there are those in the Catholic church who are truly saved but God is telling them…”come out of her my people”.

      Mt. 23:8-10
      “But do not be called Rabbi;for One is your Teacher, and you are all brother. Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. Do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ.”

      In verse 8 Jesus warns against calling a man “teacher” as a religious title. Here He uses the Hebraism, “Rabbi,” technically meaning “great or exalted one.” Scripturally, One is our Teacher: the Holy Spirit who leads us into all truth, In verse 9 Jesus commands that as a religious title we call no one on earth our “father,” “for One is your Father in Heaven.” And in verse 10 He outlaws calling a human our “leader, for our one Leader is Christ. By calling himself “infallible” when speaking Ex Cathedra as head of the papal Magesterium, claiming to be the final teacher on matters of doctrine, the pope puts himself in place of the Holy Spirit. In verse 9, by calling himself “The Holy Father,” he puts himself in place of God the Father. And in verse 10, by calling himself “the Vicar of Christ” he puts himself in place of Christ. Thus the pope puts himself in place of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, exalting himself by usurping the titles and authority reserved for God alone. As the Holy Spirit is the true Vicar of Christ, and Christ communicates the Father’s love to us, the False Prophet replaces the Holy Spirit in Roman Catholic theology which he seeks to exted to other faiths along the lines of the pontifical tradition of pagan Rome. The papacy fundamentaly remains an antichrist institution controlled by the spirit of antichrist. And the pope is by precise scriptural definition an antichrist.

    • “You cannot practice Roman Catholicism without sinning.”

      daniel, you cannot practice anything without sinning. there is none worthy.

    • No church is perfect, but the catholic religion doesn’t even fall under the category of the biblical church, not even considered part of the body of Christ. Do you know the core beliefs of that religion? I mean no disrespect, I truly don’t, I’m not trying to be argumentive. But I was raised catholic, and my mom is still hardcore catholic. Their beliefs and practices are very unbiblical. I strongly encourage you to do further research. Just cause a religion has the cross of Christ or speaks of Christ does not mean its biblically based. Look into Berean Beacon website, a lot a lot of testimonies from excatholics on there, and majority, like myself too, came to know the fallies of the catholic religion by simply reading the Bible and seeing how the catholic religion is FAR from biblical. I’m just speaking Truth brother, not trying to be ugly or confrontational. Again, do some research. God bless you!

    • This is not about none being worthy. This is about practices of a false religion. Do you honestly believe that the Holy Spirit endorses the veneration of Mary as co-redeemer? How about praying to the dead? The eucharist itself is a denial of the once for all death of Jesus for the remission of our sins. The Holy Spirit will never endorse or lead anyone into sin. You simply cannot engage in the practice of Roman Catholicism without commiting sin. That is a fact. Problem is…we have become a church of man’s opinions, not God’s. This is the dilemma of Laodicea.

    • to daniel and wordsof,

      was rasied catholic. was an altar boy even. i am well familiar with this church. there is plenty wrong. what must one do to be saved?

    • What’s always amazed me was reading in Kings how God continued to blessed them and the people…even though they were worshiping idols and going to the high places.
      After all, it was hundreds of years before Judah went into captivity. Where there’s a sliver of hope, God’s mercy remains. Or simply this, when God’s patience runs out, he brings down the hammer. Not a century sooner.

    • Mark, you asked what one must do to be saved?

      If you believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died sacrificing His own flesh yielded up to the Cross, to save us, then was buried, resurrected, walked again in the flesh with His disciples for a time, and then ascended to the Throne of Heaven…. then you can depend on Him to save you… and all that believe in Him.

      It’s not up to us. It’s up to Him.

      Is this what you believe?

    • Once again, The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth, not the Spirit of error. To give authenticity to a church that teaches that salvation comes through “sacriments” instead of being born again and that practice transubsantiation and praying to the dead(which is strictly forbidden in scripture), is flagrantly immoral. Once again, they also teach and believe that Mary was sinless and is the co-reedemer. The list of “plenty wrongs” that you mention should be called what they are which are abominations. And the abominations are many. If you use the same logic that you are using for the catholic church, you would also have to extend what you believe about the Holy Spirit to the Watchtower(Jehovah’s Witnesses), or to the Mormon church as well. Catholics, Mormons, and Jehovah’s witnesses all teach error in the primary doctrines of the true Christian faith and sadly are leading many, many people to hell believing that they are saved.

      Binny, I know plenty, plenty of people in this world that are tremendously blessed and are not even saved. God sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous alike. Are you suggesting that earthly blessing while worshipping other god’s is an indicator that their individual life is justified before God? Also, no matter how badly the Catholic church wants to be Israel, they never will be.

      What I am not saying is that someone cannot get saved in the midst of Catholicism…What I am saying is that if they do, the Holy Spirit will reveal their sin, compel them to repent, and call them out of it. They will desire the Truth, because it is only the Truth that will set a man free.

    • Lots of unbiblical teaching in the Roman Catholic church. But unlike some “Christian” churches they teach that Jesus is God the Son. Yes we can talk about all the dross of the Roman Catholics but at least for now they believe God, in Jesus, has come in the flesh .They are preferable to a Protestant Church whose only unbiblical teaching is that they do not believe that Jesus is God the Son.

    • “Ho there! Flee from the land of the north,” declares the Lord, “for I have dispersed you as the four winds of the heavens.” declares the Lord, Ho Zion! escape, you who are living wih the daughter of Babylon” (Zechariah 2:6-7).

      And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, My people, that you may not participate in her sins and that you may not receive of her plagues; for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remember her iniquities” (Revelation 18:4-5).

      If you are participating in sins of the Catholic Church, you will receive her plagues. That is not my word, it is God’s Word.

    • what happens to those who participate in the sins of protestantism.

      who goes to heaven calvinists or armenians?

    • also, you misrepresent scripture. babylon is a type of the world. we are told to come out of the world. leave behind the fleshly desires and strive for what is Godly wherever you may find it.

      lot’s wife is a physical example.

    • I sincerely believe that the Holy Spirit is alive and well in the Catholic Church; however, as a former catholic, I will adamently state that the church did teach about Jesus Christ, Father God but was poor in teaching about the Holy Spirit and the concept of being born again in the Holy Spirit and activating the Power of the Lord also the concept of the Power of the Blood and the Power of the Cross.

      The Lord took me out the the catholic church not to turn my back on them but to learn about being born again and follow the true teachings of Jesus Christ. In that way I would be able to reach more to those in the Catholic Church and by the way, this includes all others in and out of denominations.

      If the people are poorly taught then the enemy will seep into the “head” of any denomination simply to carry out its purpose–to kill, steal, and destroy. Catholics believe in Father God, and Jesus Christ and many I believe may know how the Holy Spirit is activated and how it functions in their daily lives but its limited.

      Effective prayer will save and protect anyone who believes in Christ.

    • (KJV)
      Revelation Chp.22

      18) For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things,God shall add unto him the plagues that are written it this book:

      19) And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

      I just do not see how it could be ANY plainer!

      Any one?

    • since there was no bible at the time what book was john refering to?

      all denominations are guilty of some sin. all it takes is one. we must all repent.

    • Mark,
      As I am no scholar, but I would guess to say he was referring to the book he was pinning at that time, inspired by God. Many books to choose from, yes. We all have the free will to pick and chose the’book’ we conform to ,or conform it to our own will. It is all a matter of faith in what or who we choose to believe. I guess we will not really know until we are face to face with God on judgement day,after all, every ‘religion’ thinks they have the one true way to heaven.

    • so what was your point? what couldn’t be any plainer?

      all denominations have wrong theology that will land you in the lake of fire unless repented of.

    • As I would not seek out an ear doctor for an eye problem,(as I said, I’m no scholar) these words are my understanding of the point of said verses. …’unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book’…., first, man must hear the true word before he can discern and rightly divide the word. If man hears the word and then ADDS to the word, then he suffers the wrath. The same deal if man chooses to ‘take away from the word’, suffer the same wrath. That is Father’s word, not mine. And it can not get any plainer to me than that. If God commands me to pray to Mary or the dead, please give scripture for it, I missed it.

      Luke 20:46-47
      Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feast; which devour widow’s houses, and for a show make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation.

      The Dark Ages is a good example of the ‘church’s’ effort to keep the people dumbed down to the scripture. Most were illiterate and could not study the scriptures for themselves. It wasn’t about big stone cathedrals, robes or rituals that man invented. God says he is a just God, he knows who has heard the truth and chose to manipulate it or to turn from it altogether.

    • again,

      all denominations have wrong theology that will land you in the lake of fire unless repented of.

    • I agree Mark, unless sins are confessed and repented of, we will burn! As for a denomination, I belong to none. No earth bound church has my’letter’, no elder or deacon has voted me in. Christ wrote my name in the Book of Life when I accepted Him as my Savior, ( and I am sure it has been crossed out a few times), as I have sown my wild oats and had fell by the wayside. Rededicated to Him who gave me life, an eternal life if I so choose, as a part of the Body of Christ. I like the parable of sowing the seed. It is interesting how even the Apostles were not clear on it’s meaning, being chosen by Jesus. But they studied and learned. It is amazing how a seed will be planted, and may remain dormant for years before it takes root and sprouts, if it hasn’t been plucked out by satan, as Jesus said satan is were ever the seed is planted to do just that. I do not believe there is a human alive that ‘knows it all’ when it comes to any thing, especially scripture. Thus, we have a personal and intimate relationship with our Lord, and will be judged on that. Not as a denominational group. As Jesus said,’I will build my Church on THIS rock’, not ‘this,that and the other one’. It may take some of us a life time to find the right Rock, after sifting through many. Father already knows who will or will not find His Rock. It is a human struggle, but one worth suffering given the alternative. I think of Job and how Godly he was, and even so, God had to thump him on his gourd. I imagine my gourd will be full of lumps when I stand before Father!LOL

      I do not believe ANY sins is ‘ok’. There are ‘natural’ sins we all commit, even if not intended. So we confess, apologize to Father, and ask forgiveness. Then there are the ones He points to directly and calls them ‘abominations’. I believe when one becomes aware of these and does not ‘go and sin no more’, but chooses to languish in them with fore thought and malice, the damnation is greater. He is the Judge, and is just.

      Hope all have a blessed day, I enjoy the discussions here.

    • The greater assembly of saints in Heaven now with Christ is the True Church. That includes pre-crucifixion, pre-israel, and pre-flood saints along with those that have come out of all the nations and denominations.

      And it will most certainly include the end-time saints, the great multitude that come out of great tribulation.

      The remnant in this world in each generation have obtained, but definitely not because they were part of any church. Consider the letters to the churches in Revelation. Except for the church at Philadelphia, there were tares and toleration. No doubt some in the Philadelphian church were and are not saved also.

      Unlike dispensationalism, I believe the letters Christ gave the churches in the Revelation also apply to the churches in each generation through the end time.

      Paul wrote to the Galatians (not to the jews) as follows…

      Galatians 4 (cp. wheat and tares)
      24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. 25 For this Agar [hagar] is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is [earthly Jerusalem], and is in bondage with her children. 26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.

      27 For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.

      29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now. 30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman. 31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the
      bondwoman, but of the free.

      It is not the remnant in this world in each generation that can say apart from the saints in Heaven, that they are “the mother of us all” who are saved. The Bride of Christ is a collective. It’s “Jerusalem Above” that has labored with Christ in the generations — but only Christ saves not the Church, though the Church has the great good blessing to help. Not any less through their ongoing prayers and ministrations, for God is not the god of the dead, but of the living (*).

      (* cp. Moses, at the transfiguration)

      And “the saints” in Heaven are definitely not those called saints by the catholic church. The true saints are the saved.

      Mark, what’s your read on the letters to the churches in Revelation 1 – 3 ? Especially the church at Philadelphia.

    • i believe when john was given these letters they had specific things for those people living then. we living now and far away must use them as an inventory of where we and our church stand in the eyes of our Lord.

      however not all are adept at scholarly reason and would not understand how to use this information. Jesus allows us this; Rev 2:24 But to the rest of you in Thyatira, who do not hold this teaching, who have not learned what some call the deep things of Satan, to you I say, I do not lay on you any other burden. (ESV)

      we are only judged by what we know, not what we don’t know.

      this question was probably better asked of those in disagreement with me.

      and no i am not a catholic. not since 1977 or so.

    • “Therefore write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after these things. (Rev. 1:19)

      So there are “things which you have seen,” “things which are,” and “things which will take place.”

      These seven churches, which actually existed in the first century (“things which you have seen”), also represent seven broad types of churches that can exist at any time in history t”things which are,”), and seven generally overlapping periods of church history (“things which will take place”). These letters to the seven churches of Asia can be applied in four main ways:

      1. They existed literally and historically at the end of the first century A.D.
      2. They are seven types of church which exist at any time throughout history.
      3. They represent seven types of church that will exist at the end of the age.
      4. They correspond quite well to seven periods of church history

      it is important to understand that Roman Catholicism is nothing less than ancient Babyonian religion. One does not have to dig very deep to understand the true history of the Catholic Church. Participating and practicing Roman Catholicism is a direct physical, and spiritual act of denying the True saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. Imho, the spirit of Anichrist will bring forth the False Prophet out of the Catholic Church. At least that is what I see at present. If you truly love Catholic people, which I have absolutely no doubt that you do, pray for them that the would get away from that harlot.

    • that’s pretty much what i said.

      “practicing Roman Catholicism is a direct physical, and spiritual act of denying the True saving Gospel of Jesus Christ.” (as is in some other christian denominations as well)

      i always pray for all that the Holy Spirit have His way in all.

  2. Concerning the Catholic church controversy here, most Protestant churches also have the Eucharist, although they call it communion. Even Calvary Chapel, which prides itself as solely Bible-based, has communion. I don’t know whether these Protestants think the bread becomes the Body of Christ, or whether it’s commemorative, in the manner of Jesus saying “do this in remembrance of Me.”

    I am against venerating Mary, but I don’t think many Catholics pray directly to saints, they ask Mary and other saints to pray to God for them, to intercede. A famous Protestant preacher, Jack Hayford, wrote a book on Mary and said that prayers sent to Mary would be forwarded to God, no problem.

    These things are to me unimportant if the true gospel of salvation is preached in either the Catholic or Protestant churches. I’ve been in Catholic parishes polluted by falsity, and in Protestant ones the same, and in Catholic parishes which were gospel-alive, and Protestant the same.

    In my town I can’t find either a Catholic or Protestant church which is what I want. I would have to move away to find one. I am lonely, but I do go to a Bible study at a Protestant church and a current events/theology study at a Catholic church. These lay people are closer to the gospel than their priests/pastors. It is very lonely to find a proper church, but I believe more inclusion and less declusion would be Jesus’ way.

    • Mariel… indulge me for a bit please.

      If the true gospel of salvation is preached among the bahai or raëleans — I’ve no doubt some would turn.

      Isaiah 55
      11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

      Neither group would provide a proper church. Nor would inclusion help.
      Only Christ Himself makes the difference.

      Psalm 127
      1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

      John 15
      5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
      6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

      A church can’t substitute for Christ.

      Lord I can’t even walk
      without you holding my hand
      The mountain is too high
      and the valley is too wide
      down on my knees
      I learned to stand
      because I can’t even walk
      without you holding my hand.

  3. The Lord is judging sin. “My Spirit will not contend with man forever…” Everyone, all peoples everywhere will either join with the great delusion or they will be broken. Every man’s ideals or beliefs will be tested by what is coming. That which is not of Christ and God will not stand and cannot stand.

    The funny thing about storms is that those things which are dead or dying the rain actually speeds their decay, but gives life to that which is living. Now we see judgement coming by fire and a Holy Fire at that (purest of heat). The dross will be carried away by the trials that are coming. We will (as individuals) either be refined and let go of false/wrong understandings and come to a repentance and understanding or you will suffer through your lack. He will cause everyone to seek Him with their whole heart and mind. Shalom
