Are We Like Christ?
Unite against terror, Pope says in Christmas speech
"Berean Beacon Ministries proclaims the Good News of Salvation (the Gospel of Jesus Christ). The President and founder is Richard Bennett, a former Roman Catholic Priest. A number of articles are posted to help those in Catholicism to find the true Gospel of Jesus Christ."
"The greatest obstacle to the Gospel is silence. By remaining silent and hoping that our Christian life will testify for itself we fail to keep the Lord’s commandment. The commandment, “go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature.” means to go and speak the Word to the Catholic! The majority of Nuns and Priests and former Catholics that I know who have been saved out of Catholicism all testify to the fact that no Bible believer ever approached them about their salvation. Christ’s commandment to give the good news is a commandment, not a request!"
The Sacramental System of Roman Catholicism
A friend had told me that I hadn’t given him any convincing evidence that Roman Catholicism teaches that salvation is caused by faith plus works. The Catholic Catechism does give ample evidence. I refer below to the , “Catechism of the Catholic Church” published by Libreria Editrice Vaticana, Liguori Publications 1994.
On page 292, in the section called, “Section One, The Sacramental
Economy”, Article 2, “The Paschal Mystery in the Church’s Sacraments”,
item 1129, it says: “The Church
affirms that for believers the sacraments of the New Covenant are
necessary for salvation.” The footnote 51 refers to the
Council of Trent (1547).
On page 289: “There are seven sacraments in the Church: Baptism,
Confirmation or Chrismation, Eucharist, Penance, Anointing of the Sick,
Holy Orders, and Matrimony.”
The first night I listened to a Catholic Radio station the speaker spoke
of how the life of Christ is given to us through the Sacrifice of the
Mass when it is administered by a valid priesthood. He stated that Roman
Catholicism and Eastern Orthodox have valid priesthoods and no one else
Nothing could be clearer to me, and more serious, than the fact that the
Catechism is saying that salvation is caused by faith plus works. There
are pages of quotes from the Catechism that can confirm what is stated
above as well as many other documents in addition to the Catechism.
