The Bible says in Revelation 18:1-4 “And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”
Only saved people are God’s people.
Therefore, the Bible is showing here that some saved people would get mixed up in the cult of Babylon, and suffer through God’s judgment upon her, if they do not leave.
The Roman Catholic Church is the Cult of Babylon.
I will now show you how that the Roman Catholic church is not the true church, but is a counterfeit. And how that its teachings contradict the Bible and agree with ancient Babylonian paganism.
The Bible says Jesus Christ is the Head of the true church not any man, such as the Pope.
Ephesians 1:20-23 “Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.”
Colossians 1:12-18 “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.”
The Bible says that Jesus Christ, the Apostles, and the Old Testament Prophets are the only foundation of the true church not “church tradition” or writings of so called “Church Fathers.”
Ephesians 2:20 “And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;”
1 Corinthians 3:11 “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”
The Bible is truth, and God’s inspired Word.
Jesus prayed in John 17:17 “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”
2 Peter 1:21 “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”
The Bible is the only record we have of what Jesus, the Apostles, and the Old Testament Prophets taught.
Therefore, since we must found our faith only upon the teachings of Jesus Christ, the Apostles, and the Old Testament prophets, then we must found our faith only upon what the Bible says, not upon what any man or church tradition says.
The Bible is God’s Word. It was not written by the will of men, but holy men wrote exactly what God told them to write by the Holy Ghost.
2 Peter 1:21 “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”
The Bible says to reject heretics after 1 and 2 admonitions.
A heretic is someone who teaches something that contradicts the Bible. The Roman Catholic church teaches many things that contradict the Bible.
Let us look at a few doctrines of the Roman Catholic church that contradict the Bible:
The Catholic Church says that Peter was the first Pope.
First of all, the Bible never says that Peter went to Rome. Even His Epistles were written to the church at Babylon, not the church at Rome.
Furthermore, the Catholic church tries to justify their claim of Peter being the first Pope by twisting Matthew 16:18 “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”
They say that Peter was the rock that Christ built His church on, but the word Peter means a piece of a rock, like a small stone ( Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance with Hebrew and Greek dictionaries # 4074 in the Greek), and the word rock in this verse means a mass of rock like a big boulder (Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance with Hebrew and Greek dictionaries # 4073 in the Greek) .
The Bible says Christ built His church upon Himself.
The Bible says that Christ is the chief cornerstone of the church, not Peter.
Ephesians 2:20 “And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;”
1 Corinthians 3:11 “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”
In addition, Peter was married.
Matthew 8:14 “And when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother laid, and sick of a fever.”
Mark 1:30 “But Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her.”
The Catholic church says a human priest can forgive sins.
The teaching that a human priest can forgive sins comes from Baal worship, not the Bible.(Hislop, Alexander. 1862. The Two Babylons. 3rd ed. Ontario: Chick Publications. P. 7.)
The Catholic church twists the meaning of the Scripture passage John 20:21-23 “Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost: Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.”
However, Jesus did not give the Apostles power to forgive anyone’s sins in order to keep them out of Hell and give them salvation.
Nowhere in the Bible did any of the Apostles forgive anyone’s sins at any time. Even Peter told Simon the sorcerer to repent and pray to God for forgiveness of his sin. Then when Simon the sorcerer asked Peter to pray for him, Peter gave no answer.
Acts 8:9-25 “But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries. But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done. Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost. And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity. Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the LORD for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me. And they, when they had testified and preached the word of the Lord, returned to Jerusalem, and preached the gospel in many villages of the Samaritans.”
The belief that religious leaders can forgive sins comes from paganism and traces all the way back to the beginning of Baal worship with Nimrod and Semiriamis in Babylon.
Simon was a sorcerer, and he showed here that he believed that Peter could pray for him in order for God to forgive him his sins. This is why Peter gave no answer, and apparently just walked away. Because Peter knew that the man had to repent and pray and ask God for forgiveness himself. If Peter had had the power to forgive Simon’s sins, or could have prayed for him for his sins to be forgiven, then Peter would have done one of those things. The Scriptures show that Peter was not even sure that Simon could be forgiven for the grievous sin that he committed. This passage proves more than any other that Peter was never a Pope!
The Bible says Jesus is the only mediator between God and men, not Peter or anyone else.
1 Timothy 2:5” For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;”
Furthermore, the Apostle Paul told the Philippian jailer to believe on Jesus in order to be saved. If the Apostle Paul could have forgiven the man’s sins, he would have forgiven them.
Acts 16:27-32 “And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled. But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here. Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.”
John Calvin taught that Jesus was just giving the Apostles power to preach the Gospel in John 20:21-23. I disagree with him, because I do not see that in that passage. This passage says nothing about preaching, and it actually says that the Apostles had power to retain and remit sins. As I have just explained above it was not to forgive them so they could escape any kind of eternal punishment. So exactly what was Jesus talking about here?
In John 20:21-23 Jesus was speaking of the Apostles and all believers being able to call down or withhold God’s physical judgment in this life against those who would persecute them.
When Stephen was killed, he prayed that God would not hold the sin against his murders.
Acts 7:59-60 “And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.”
Stephan’s dying prayer could have led to the Apostle Paul getting saved, since he was a young man at the time, watched the coats for the men who stoned Stephen, and was consenting to his death. (Acts 7:58-8:1)
Therefore, a prayer for God’s mercy on your persecutors in this life can lead to them repenting and getting saved, but our prayers cannot save them, they themselves must repent and ask God for forgiveness in order to be saved from eternal punishment.
A more modern example of this is William Tyndale.
He was burned at the stake by King Henry the VIII for translating the Bible into English and making it available to the common people in their common language.
When William Tyndale died, he cried out, “Lord, open the King of England’s eyes!” Not long after, God did open King Henry the VIII’s eyes and he allowed the Bible, the very one that Tyndale translated, to be given to the common people. This eventually led to the founding of America, and to the Philadelphian Church Age, wherein were great revivals and awakenings, and millions were saved.
Unfortunately, though King Henry the VIII himself probably died lost and went to hell. I see no evidence in history that he ever truly repented of his sins and trusted in Christ.
So again, no one can forgive another person’s sins, or have another person’s sins forgiven them by praying for them, because each person must repent of their sins, believe in Jesus, and ask God to forgive them themselves. However, our prayers can cause the Holy Spirit to work harder to lead either them, and/or millions of others to salvation later.
In addition, the Apostle Paul struck a man blind for hindering the Gospel, and also prayed that the Lord would judge Alexander the coppersmith.
Acts 13:8-12 “But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith. Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him. And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord? And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand. Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord.”
Notice the result of the judgement was that someone got saved. The salvation of souls should be our intent whenever we use the power that God has given us to either withhold His physical judgment or call it down on someone.
2 Timothy 4:14-15 “Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works: Of whom be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood our words.”
Scripture does not tell us the result of this prayer of judgment, but again, this was another man who was hindering the salvation of others. Paul’s intention was that God would judge Alexander, so more people could be saved.
The Bible says only God can forgive sins.
Luke 5:19 “And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst before Jesus. And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee. And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone? But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answering said unto them, What reason ye in your hearts? Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk? But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house. And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God.”
Jesus is God, so He has power to forgive sins, he healed the man to prove that!
The Catholic church says that you must work to get your sins forgiven.
They say you must do whatever penance a priest tells you to do in order to have your sins forgiven. This could be paying money, saying a bunch of prayers, walking around on your knees, or many other “works.”
This teaching of obedience to a human priest to work for one’s salvation started in Babylon with Baal worship. (Hislop, Alexander. 1862. The Two Babylons. 3rd ed. Ontario: Chick Publications. P. 7.)
Repentance is not the same thing as penance. Repentance is a change of your heart from wanting to sin to wanting to obey God. This is an immediate change of your heart (meaning desire and will). It means that you yield (submit) your will to God’s will.
That is repentance of sins, and it is required for you to receive forgiveness of your sins.
Luke 13:5 “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”
Ezekiel 18:23 “Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?”
Ezekiel 18:23 agrees with 2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
In addition, Matthew 9:13 says “But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
Also, look at Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
The word “believe” in Romans 10:9 in the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance roots backwards twice to a word, which means “obey” (the word believe is Strong’s # 4100 in the Greek, which comes from # 4102, which comes from # 3982, which means obey and also yield). This shows that true faith is rooted in obedience.
Therefore, in order to fulfill the requirements of salvation in Romans 10:9 you must be fully persuaded in your mind of who Jesus Christ is and what He has done, and your heart must change from wanting to sin to wanting to obey God. As I said above, this is an immediate change of your heart (meaning desire and will). It means that you yield (submit) your will to God’s will.
Your actions may not change immediately, but you are going to be so convicted over your sin, when you mess up, that you are going to cry out to God to help you to change.
This is repentance, and it has nothing to do with penance.
The Bible says we are forgiven of our sins by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, and that salvation is a free gift.
Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Romans 1:17 “For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.”
Galatians 3:11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.”
Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
The Catholic church says to pray to Saints and Mary.
They say that you will be more likely to get your prayers answered if you pray to Mary and certain saints, and have them intercede for you. The idea of praying to dead humans is also deeply rooted in paganism.
Plus, the Bible says all saved people are saints, not just certain dead ones.
1 Corinthians 1:2 “Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both their’s and our’s:”
Revelation 14:12 “Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”
The Bible says to pray to God alone, and that Jesus is our only mediator.”
Matthew 6:6 “But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.”
1 Timothy 2:5 “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;”
None of the Apostles ever prayed to anyone but God, and they never said to pray to anyone but God.
The Bible also says to pray for living saints, it does not say to pray to dead ones.
Ephesians 6:18 “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;”
We are not to pray for dead saints, because after death is judgment. There is nothing that we can pray or do to make their eternity better for them, and it is too late for them to repent anymore.
Hebrews 9:27 “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:”
The Catholic church says that people go to purgatory to pay for their sins, and that other people must pay money to get them out early.
This is nothing but a money scam. They enslave the souls of people to increase their own wealth.
The Bible says that saved people immediately go to heaven to be with Jesus, and lost people immediately go to hell.
Luke 16:22-26 “And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.”
2 Corinthians 5: 6-8 “Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.”
And as I said before, once someone dies nothing can be done to make their eternity better for them. It is too late for them to repent anymore, because after death is judgment.
The Catholic church says to bow down to idols.
The Catholic church says to bow down to idols that they say are Mary, Jesus, and saints. This is blatantly pagan. We do not know what Mary and Jesus even looked like. Those are actually idols of Semiramis, Baal, and Tamuz. The Catholic church just changed their names. (Hislop, Alexander. 1862. The Two Babylons. 3rd ed. Ontario: Chick Publications.)
The Bible says not to bow down to idols.
Exodus 20:4-5 “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;”
The Catholic church says that the Pope is infallible.
The teaching that the Pope is infallible in his teachings and morals became part of Catholic dogma in Vatican 1 Council. The idea that religious leaders are infallible in their teachings started with Baal worship in Babylon. (Hislop, Alexander. 1862. The Two Babylons. 3rd ed. Ontario: Chick Publications. P. 7.)
The Bible says all humans are sinners.
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
In addition, none of the Apostles ever claimed any infallibility. The Bible praises the Bereans for making sure that the teachings of the Apostles agreed with what the Old Testament Prophets said would come to pass. The Bible must be our final authority for all doctrine and life!
Acts 17:10-11 “And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”
The Bible says that religious leaders who sin are to be rebuked openly.
1 Timothy 5;19-20 “Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses. Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.”
The Bible does not exclude any elders from this open rebuke for sin. Peter himself was openly rebuked by Paul.
Galatians 2:11-14“But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed. For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision. And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation. But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?”
The Catholic church says Mary is Co-Redeemer with Christ.
They say that Mary has to intercede for people in order for Christ to forgive them of their sins.
This is nothing more than a “Christian face” put on the pagan teachings of Baal worship. In Babylon, Semiramis commanded people to worship her son Tamuz as a god, and she herself claimed to be a goddess and the mediator between the people and her son. (Hislop, Alexander. 1862. The Two Babylons. 3rd ed. Ontario: Chick Publications. P. 5.)
The Bible says that Jesus is our only Savior and mediator.
Acts 4:10-12 “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
1 Timothy 2:5 “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;”
The Catholic church forbids certain people like priests and nuns to marry.
This pagan religious discipline can be traced all the way back to Semiramis and Nimrod the founders of Baal worship in Babylon. (Hislop, Alexander. 1862. The Two Babylons. 3rd ed. Ontario: Chick Publications. 219-220.)
The Catholic church first officially enforced this rule at the Second Lateran Council held in 1139.
The Bible teaches that the church is not to forbid to marry.
1 Timothy 4:1-3 “ Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.”
The Catholic church changed the Lord’s Supper into the Mass and says that it actually turns into the body and blood of Jesus.
The Catholic church first made the sacrament of the Mass a doctrine in 394 AD. Below is what was said about it at the Council of Trent in 1563 and then it was Ratified at the Vatican II Council in 1963:
“If any one shall deny that the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ, and therefore entire Christ, are truly, really and substantially contained in the sacrament of the most Holy Eucharist; and say that He is only in it as a sign, or in a figure-let him be accursed! (Damned)” This doctrine is still in effect in the Catholic Church today.
This practice of “turning a god into a piece of bread” comes from Baal worship and ancient Egyptian paganism! Not the Bible! (Hislop, Alexander. 1862. The Two Babylons. 3rd ed. Ontario: Chick Publications. 156-164.)
The Bible says the Lord’s supper is only a symbolic remembrance of Christ’s sacrifice for us on the cross.
Luke 22:19 “And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.”
1 Corinthians 11:23-26 “For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.”
As you can see, the core doctrines of the Roman Catholic church are in direct contradiction of the Bible! Therefore, the doctrines of the Roman Catholic church are heresies, and the Roman Catholic church is a heretic cult! Not a true Church of Jesus Christ!
The Roman Catholic church has been admonished for these heresies over and over again by men like, Peter Waldo, John Huss, John Wycliff, Martin Luther, John Calvin, and many millions more, but instead of repenting, they persecuted and killed many of them.
The Roman Catholic church is a heretic cult that has been admonished, but has refused to repent! Therefore, you must reject her and obey God’s calling to you:
“Come Out of her my people!“
For, if you refuse to denounce Rome and come out of her, God will punish you with her in the Great Tribulation!
Revelation 18:1-4 “And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”
Revelation 2:20 “Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.”
The eating of “things sacrificed unto idols” mentioned here is specifically speaking of the Mass.
The Roman Catholic Church is the Cult of Babylon, its teachings agree with the paganism of Babylon not with the Bible.
In addition, the Bible specifically speaks of the Roman Catholic Church and describes it as a “Great Whore” in Revelation 17.
1 “And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.”
The Bible says this woman sits on seven mountains.
Revelation 17:9 “And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.” The word mountains in this verse can mean hills (Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance with Greek and Hebrew Dictionaries # 3735 in the Greek).
Rome is built on seven hills.
These seven hills are called Aventine, Caelian, Capitoline, Esquiline, Palatine, Quirinal and Viminal. The Servian Wall was built around them as a defense in the 300s B.C. Then these seven hills became the seven hills of Rome. Therefore, Rome is called “the city on 7 hills.”
Now it is true that Vatican Hill is not one of the 7 hills of Rome. However, in 313 AD, Constantine gave the Lateran Palace on Caelian Hill to the Bishop of Rome. Caelian Hill, which is one of the seven hills of Rome, then became and still remains, the ecclesiastical seat of the Bishop of Rome, who is the Pope.
Furthermore, in 324 AD, the first basilica was built on Caelian Hill, now called “St. John Lateran.” In it is a throne called the cathedra, which is a seat, a chair with arms for the pope. Therefore, the Pope himself does sit on one of the seven Hills of Rome.
The Bible says this woman is clothed in purple, scarlet, and gold.
Revelation 17:4a “And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls…”
The Pope and other officials of the Catholic church wear purple, scarlet, and gold.
On February 15th, 44 BC, Julius Caesar wore a luxurious purple and gold robe to the feast of Pan, called Lupercalia.
After this, all Caesars started wearing that costly purple, and scarlet and gold as a symbol of royalty.
This continued right down into Roman Catholic clergy, becoming commonplace in 500 AD.
The Bible says this woman declares herself to be “Mother.”
Revelation 17:5 “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”
The Catholic church declares herself to be the “Mother” church.
In 251 AD, Cyprian of Carthage declared in De Unitate Ecclesiae (“The Unity of the Church”), “He cannot have God for his Father who has not the Church for his mother.”
After this, the Roman Catholic church started calling itself “Mother Church.”
In addition, in 431 AD at the Council of Ephesus, where they once cried for two hours,
“Great is Diana of the Ephesians,” Acts 19:34, they now exalted Mary as the theotokos the bearer of God, the mother of God.
And often, becoming Roman Catholic is said to be “coming home to mother church” or “coming home to Mary.”
In Revelation 18:7 the whore of Babylon says, “I sit a queen.” Is it any coincidence that the Catholic Mary is also called “The Queen of Heaven”? Her Seat is on One of the Seven Mountains.
Revelation 17:9 “And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.”
The Bible says this Woman is “Drunk with the blood of the saints.”
Revelation 17:6a “And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus…”
The Roman Catholic Church has killed millions of Christians.
In 1184 AD the Synod of Verona says you can burn heretics at the stake, and in 1215 AD starting at the 4th Lateran Council the Inquisition was formed.
After that, does anyone really want to dispute the millions of victims, tortured and killed in the name of the pope, the Mary goddess, and the Eucharist wafer?
Even if the killings weren’t done at Rome, Roman Catholicism was responsible.
Truly, she was power-mad, “drunk with the blood of the saints.”
Revelation 18:24 “And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.”
To this very day the Jesuits still take an oath to kill all heritics. (Meaning those wh do not agree with them.)
Here is the Jesuit oath that the Jesuits still bind themselves to today:
“ I now in the presence of the Almighty God, the blessed virgin Mary, the blessed Michael the Archangel, the blessed St. John the Baptist . . • and my ghostly father, the superior general of the Society of Jesus, founded by St. Ignatius Loyola, do by the womb of the Virgin • . . swear that His Holiness the Pope is Christ’s vice-regent, and is the true and only Head of the Catholic or Universal Church … I do now renounce and dis own any allegiance is due to any heretical King, Prince, or State, named Protestant or Liberal, or obedience to any of their laws or magistrates, or officers. I do further declare the doctrine of the Church of England, and Scotland, and of Calvanists, Huguenots, and others of the name of Protestant or Liberal, to be damnable, and themselves to be damned, who will not forsake the same- I do further promise and declare that, notwithstanding I am dispensed with, to assume my religion heretical for the propagation of Mother Church’s interest, to keep secret and private all her agents, counsels, from time to time, as they interest me, and not divulge directly or indirectly by word, writing, or circumstances whatever. I do furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity presents, make and wage relentless war secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants, and Liberals, as I am directed to; extirpate them from the face of the earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex, or condition, and that I will hang, burn, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive those infamous heretics; rip up the stomachs and wombs of the women, and crush their infants’ heads against the walls in order to annihilate their inexorable race. That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisonous cup, the strangulating cords, the steels of the poinard, or the leaden bullets, regardless of the honour, rank, dignity, or authority of the persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed to by any agent of the Pope, or the superior of the Holy Father of the Society of Jesus. In confirmation of which I hereby dedicate my life, my soul, and my corporeal powers; and with this dagger, which I now receive, I will subscribe my name written in my blood in testimony thereof; and should I prove false, or weaken in my determination may my brethren and fellow-soldiers of the militia of the Pope, cut off my hands and my feet, and my throat from ear to ear, rip my belly open, and sulphur burn therein, and all the punishments that can be inflicted on me on earth, and my soul be tortured by demons in an eternal hell for ever. In testimony thereof I take this most holy and blessed sacrament of the Eucharist, and witness the same further with my name written with the point of this dagger, dipped in my own blood, and sealed in the face of the holy covenant .

The current Pope is a Jesuit.
As you can see the Jesuits are a very militant group just like Jihad, and they should be banned from America as terrorists just like Jihad was. For more information about the Jesuits, please read the book “The Secret History of the Jesuits” by Francois-Edmond Paris.
The Roman Catholic church is truly drunk with the blood of the saints.
The Bilbe says this woman is a city that reigns over the kings of the earth.
Revelation 17:18 “And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.”
The Catholic church claims authority over all world leaders.
In Unam Sanctam, 1302, Pope Boniface VIII created the ex cathedra doctrine. He declared “…in this Church and in its power are two swords; namely, the spiritual and the temporal…. Both, therefore, are in the power of the Church…” “Temporal” meaning human government.
Then he said the church was the highest power of all, and: “…if the highest power of all err, it can be judged only by God, and not by man…”
What he’s saying is that the Pope has authority over all the governments of the world, and is accountable to God only.
On February 11, 1929, the signing of the Lateran Accords, made Vatican City a sovereign city-state.
Making it both a city and a country, with its ruler, the Bishop of Rome, the Pope.
And since it is both a religious body and has a single ruler, it is called an “sacerdotal-monarchical” city.
Since 1929, most countries of the world have come to the Vatican to have a “private audience” with the pope.
And Rome, has sent her own ambassadors to most of the nations of the world.
Can anyone deny the massive influence of Rome in world politics?
Think about this.
If the government does not please the Pope, the Pope can tell all of his followers not to obey that government. And a government does not work without the people.
Therefore, world leaders listen to the Pope.
And that is to say nothing about the centuries of the not so “Holy Roman Empire,” and all the kings who either gained power or lost it, because of the Pope’s word.
And now, since 1929, Rome is both a city and a country.
The Bible says that kings have committed fornication with this woman.
Revelation 18:3 “For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her,”
World leaders respect, meet with, and listen to the Pope in order to keep their positions.
As I said above, if a government does not do what the Pope says too, then the Pope can order all Catholics not to support that government, and that government then suffers from Rome’s wrath.
This happened in both World Wars. (Read the Book the secret History of the Jesuits by Francois-Edmond Paris).
So, world leaders seek to appease the Pope. The Bible calls this fornication, because Rome is a false religion, and it’s so called “political power” is illegitimate.
Furthermore, many nations throughout history have made nice with the Roman Catholic church, and then allowed her to pour out her wrath on the Christians in their Nations who obey the Bible instead of the Pope (The Inquisition).
After all, the only people going against the Roman Catholic church are those who obey the Bible instead of the Pope.
Pope Francis I has said that the only people who are causing the troubles of the world are fundamentalists, meaning Bible-believers.
The Bible says this woman has Incredible wealth and trades with the nations.
Revelation 18:3 “…the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.”
The Catholic church is very wealthy and sells her religious items all over the world.
All of the Catholic church’s religious items such as Crucifixes, idols, prayer beads vestments etc,. are made out of the meterials that the Bible says Babylon gets rich off of: ivory, precious woods, stones, gold and silver.
That’s what Rome sells… … and also,”the souls of men,”
Revelation 18:13 “And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.”
As I said earlier Rome makes most of its wealth off the backs of poor people, by lying to them and telling them they have to pay money to get their loved ones out of Purgatory (which does not even exist), or to keep themselves out of Purgatory. This is a very cruel and oppressive scam! I mean, think about these people. Their souls are very valuable, to God. The precious Roman Catholics need the True Word of God , which offers peace and freedom, not fear and slavery.
I have just shown you many things in Revelation 17 and 18, that are clearly true about the Roman Catholic church. I put them in both chronological and historical order. You can research each one of them yourself.
Is there anybody else who fulfills all of these things?
God knew the Roman Catholic church would do all of this, and so He warned us in Revelation chapters 17 and 18 before it came to pass.
He revealed to us in His Word what we should look for so that we would not be deceived and enslaved by a false religion.
By the way, what is the one Bible that the Roman Catholic church hates above all others? The King James Bible. Quite an endorsement, isn’t it?
As you can see, the Roman Catholic church is not the true church, it has never been the true church, it has always been a counterfeit. Its teachings are not based upon the Bible, but upon ancient pagan rituals. It is not a religion that offers freedom and peace as the true Gospel of Jesus Christ found in the Bible. It is a cult that enslaves its people and controls them through fear!
Now it is time to take heed to the voice of God calling to you:
Come Out of Her My People!
