Does The The Roman Catholic Mass Satisfy The Justice of God or Did Jesus Christ Satisfy the Justice of God On the Cross?
Does the Roman Catholic Mass satisfy the justice of God, or did Jesus Christ satisfy the justice of God on the cross? Read this article and be AMAZED at the audacity of the Roman Catholic Church to teach what they do, concerning their Catholic Mass!
When we talk about deception, we are talking about being deceived, and that is why I speak out against the deception of the Roman Catholic Church and their false teachings. Many Catholics complain about their teachings being misrepresented, so I will be quoting from their own Roman Catholic Catechism and then compare it to the scriptures (Bible) to show you that their Mass is a totally false teaching. Why do I speak out against the doctrine of the Roman Catholic Mass? As a former Roman Catholic I speak out for the following reasons:
2] The Mass is a false doctrine propagated by a false church.
3] Many Evangelical Christian “leaders” have promoted unity with Roman Catholicism (thereby endorsing their false gospel, Galatians 1:8,9).
The Bible warns us about seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.
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; (1 Timothy 4:1)
The Roman Catholic Mass is a doctrine of devils.
The Bible tells us that we, as Christians, should contend for the faith.
” . . . ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” (Jude 1:3)
(A) What Is The Mass? (According To Rome)
Here I will use Roman Catholic teaching from the New Saint Joseph Catechism, that bears the RC Imprimatur, which signifies that the doctrine within the Catechism has been approved by the Roman Catholic Church.
- The New Saint Joseph Baltimore Catechism
As you can see, the Mass is referred to as a SACRIFICE, in which CHRIST offers Himself to God, in an UNBLOODY MANNER.
Folks, that is absolute heresy.
The Bible makes it clear that it is the BLOOD that makes an atonement for the soul!
For the LIFE of the FLESH is in the BLOOD: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an ATONEMENT for your SOULS: for it is the BLOOD that maketh an ATONEMENT for the SOUL. (Leviticus 17:11)
(B) The Mass Is The Perfect Sacrifice ContinuedRight before Jesus died and gave His last breath He cried out ” . . . IT IS FINISHED . . .” [John 19:30] The perfect sacrifice has been perfectly FINISHED, and it need NOT be OFFERED up on a daily basis on the ALTARS of Roman Catholic Churches throughout the world!
(C) Purposes Of The Mass
- Purposes Of The Roman Catholic Mass
If you take a look at the fourth item on the list, you will see that one of the purposes of the Mass is to SATISFY the justice of God, for the SINS committed against Him.
Folks, that is more heresy. The Bible tells me that the justice of God was satisfied when Jesus Christ died on the cross, almost two thousand years ago. The Bible lets each and every SINNER (myself included) and every other person in the world know that they can be JUSTIFIED by the BLOOD that Jesus shed for them!
The apostle Paul, a former persecutor and murderer of Christians, wrote the following, and it ended up in the Bible for a reason:
For when we were yet without strength, in due time CHRIST died for the UNGODLY. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But GOD commendeth his LOVE toward US, in that, while WE were yet SINNERS, CHRIST DIED FOR US. Much more then, being NOW JUSTIFIED by HIS BLOOD, we shall be SAVED from WRATH through HIM. For if, when we were enemies, we were RECONCILED to GOD by the DEATH of his SON, much more, being RECONCILED, we shall be SAVED by HIS LIFE. (Romans 5:6-10)
The greatest NEWS in the world is that CHRIST died for the UNGODLY, and the motive behind the DEATH of the Son of God was GOD’S PURE UNADULTERATED LOVE TOWARD MANKIND! Any person in the world, no matter what color, race, male, female, rich or poor has the opportunity to receive SALVATION through Jesus Christ, and be JUSTIFIED by His BLOOD, before God. Why? Because every single one of us fits very comfortably into the category of UNGODLY! My Bible tells me that I have been RECONCILED back to God already, through FAITH in Jesus Christ, and I have NO NEED for a Roman Catholic Mass to be offered for me.
(D) Mass Cards
Mass cards can be obtained, for a donation, to have a Catholic Mass offered for a person living or DEAD!
In the illustration above, you can see that a donation of $5 will allow a person to have one Catholic Mass offered for them, and a donation of $45 will allow nine separate Masses to be offered for the DECEASED (DEAD) person. The purpose of the Catholic Mass for the DEAD person is for the repose (rest) of their soul. The Catholic Church teaches about a place called Purgatory, a place where the soul will remain for an undetermined amount of time before they go to Heaven. The Mass card is for their benefit, and it can shorten their time in Purgatory! Folks, there is no such place called Purgatory, and there is NO MENTION of it in the scriptures (Bible)! Jesus Christ preached about HEAVEN and HELL, and he said that a person was either SAVED or DAMNED, with no mention of Purgatory at all!
In the illustration below, you can see that a person can have seven Catholic Masses offered up for them every single day, and they can also share in the “good works” of others.
The Bible tells us that salvation cannot be earned by “good works” lest any man boast.
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. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
That is why I speak out against the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church.
For there is NO DIFFERENCE between the JEW and the Greek (Gentile): for the same LORD over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For WHOSOEVER shall call upon the name of the LORD shall be SAVED. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not BELIEVED? and how shall they BELIEVE in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a PREACHER? And how shall they PREACH, except they be sent? as it is written, How BEAUTIFUL are the feet of them that PREACH the GOSPEL of PEACE, and bring GLAD TIDINGS of good things! (Romans 10:12-15)
YOU TUBE VIDEO: SATAN’S MASTERPIECE: THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
5 Mexican Pastors Declare: “Twelve Years Of Work Destroyed In One Night” After Billy Graham Sent The Roman Catholics Back To Their Own Catholic Churches!
Here is an excerpt from the book “Smokescreens” which was published 30 years ago by Jack Chick, and it should be on the required reading list of EVERY true Christian. I am convinced that if this book were read from the pulpits of America, many leaders would be EXPOSED for the WOLVES that they are, and many Pastors would be out of a job.
“A few years ago, 5 pastors from Mexico came to see me, asking for help. They told me I must talk to Billy Graham. I told them that was impossible, I was just a little tract publisher. Then they told me Billy Graham had destroyed their churches. They said he held a crusade, and told all those who had received Christ to go back to their original churches and win those people to Christ. The pastors told me their people followed Billy’s instruction and all went back to the Roman Catholic system. Twelve years of work destroyed in one night.” [Smokescreens, Chick Publications, 1983 by Jack Chick page 58]
This is just a small excerpt from that book by Jack Chick and I publish this to make you aware of what has been happening for decades in the modern day compromising church. I became a Christian in 1989, and I worked as a counselor, along with my wife Cathy, at the Billy Graham Crusade in 1991 in Central Park in New York City.
After the message was delivered by Billy Graham, people were instructed to raise their hands if they wanted more information, and the counselors would help them in filling out their decision cards. Cathy helped a woman fill out her card and the woman wrote down the name of her local Roman Catholic Church, to which she would be sent back. Cathy felt horrible, and needless to say we started speaking out and warning others about the deception in the Billy Graham ministry. We have spoken to many Christians over the years, including many pastors and the reaction seems to be pretty much the same. People simply are not interested in hearing what you have to say. There is a sort of glaze that comes over their countenance that is almost demonic. It is as if they cannot deal with the truth that a person so well known as Billy Graham could possibly be wrong. Here is a LINK to a recent video that I put up about Billy Graham, and his removing the warnings about Rome from His crusade edition of Halley’s Bible Handbook.
The Trojan Horse Of False Unity
The call of the modern day “church” is for unity, and people believe that you are destroying the unity of the body of Jesus Christ when you speak out against the compromisers of today. There is in fact a true unity, and that unity is in Jesus Christ alone. A person is not even a member of the TRUE body of Christ, until, and unless, they have been born again of the Spirit of the living God. [John 3:1-8] What does that mean? I will tell you what that means. That means a person who has never become a new creation in Jesus Christ, by way of the new birth, is as lost as the worst criminal on planet earth. That is the Gospel truth. A person without the Holy Spirit does not belong to God!
But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. (Romans 8:9)
I did not have the Spirit of Christ while I was in the Roman Catholic Church. They teach their people that a person is born again at baptism, and they talk about the sacrament of Confirmation as marking the Christian with the seal of the Holy Spirit and clothing him with the power from on high. I speak from experience and I assure you that I did not receive any power, nor did I receive Christ at the sacrament of Confirmation. Why? Simply because the Lord was not, and cannot, be involved with such false teaching. I received the sacrament of baptism inside the Roman Catholic Church, as well as the sacrament of Confirmation, and I received no power and no seal of the Holy Spirit. I did not receive the Holy Spirit until I heard the word of God preached in truth from the Bible, and I believed it. I knew then that God was real, and I knew that Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins, and that I had been justified by HIS BLOOD! [Romans 5:6-10]. I also realized that I was sitting under the sound of a false Gospel in the Roman Catholic Church. It was the Holy Spirit (of truth) who opened my eyes, and He will open your eyes also. The Holy Spirit is also known as the Spirit of truth, and He is the one (a person, not a force) who will guide us into all truth.
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. (John 16:13-14)
It is that same Spirit of truth that yanked my wife Cathy and I out of the deceptive and false system of Roman Catholicism, and that is why I continue to speak out against Rome to this day. Many have been seduced by the trojan horse of false unity. They listen to “smooth talking” preachers who appear to be loving, but they end up promoting a false gospel in the process. They are able to get over on most of the people in their congregations, and a few might see the deception, but rarely will they utter a peep, for fear of being put out of the “church.” So here I am preaching the true Gospel, and warning others to flee from that FALSE CHURCH, and the airwaves are FILLED with the modern day WOLVES, who are working hand in hand with them! I did a short YouTube video on the compromise of the Trinity Broadcasting Network with the FALSE CHURCH of Roman Catholicism, which you can VIEW HERE.
In that video, you will be able to see how TBN promotes and sells “tons” of Roman Catholic materials including books about the Catholic Mass, and how to pray the rosary which are mainly “Hail Mary” prayers. And you wonder if there is apostasy in the church! You have got to be kidding me. With all the “anointed” men and women of God” that go on that program, should there not be at least one of them, that raises the roof against such nonsense? Is this a church or is it a circus?
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; (1 Timothy 4:1)
For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thessalonians 2:7-12)
The Satanic Seduction By The Roman Catholic Church In The Last Days! (Wake Up Before It Is Too Late!)
Back in 2005 there was a Pastor who was fired from his job as host on a Christian radio program, because of something that he said on the air. Here is an excerpt from an article from Charisma Now:
“Marty Minto 39, a senior Pastor of the 100 member, Turning Point Community Church in New Castle, was fired earlier this month after three years as a host on WORD-FM in Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported . . . Minto said he was told he was ‘alienating listeners’ . . . After the April 2, death and funeral of the Pope, Minto discussed with callers John Paul ll’s deep devotion to Mary, the mother of Jesus, and Catholic beliefs, such as Purgatory . . . I made it clear that the discussion was not an attack on the character of the Pope but rather a look at the teachings – not only of John Paul ll, but of the Catholic Church, Minto said. Minto said he responded to the question about whether the Pope, would go to Heaven with the belief held by many evangelicals that a person must be a born-again believer. [Charisma Now April 21,2005 Online Edition]
Now there was absolutely nothing wrong with what Pastor Minto discussed on his radio program that day. I mean after all, we are supposed to be preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and we are constantly making it clear to people that the wages of sin is death, and that there is a Heaven and a Hell. Pastor Minto was told that he was ‘alienating listeners’ but that is to be expected, because the true Gospel has always brought confrontation and division, even as Jesus Christ promised it would:
Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. (Matthew 10:32-38)
Pastor Minto is one of a rare breed in this day of apostasy, mixture and compromise. Pastor Minto simply counted the cost, and then he simply spoke the truth, which is what every Christian is supposed to do. His view was diamatrically opposed to the mainstream “Christian” view that does not make waves, lest their ecumenical apple cart of compromise should be disturbed.
I was not surprised by the statement that Pat Robertson (700 Club) made after the death of Pope John Paul ll:
“I am deeply grieved as a great man passes from this world to his much deserved eternal reward. John Paul ll has been the most beloved religious leader of our age – far surpassing in popular admiration the leader of any faith … I pray for the Cardinals of the Catholic Church that they might have God-given wisdom in selecting the successor to this great man . . . ” [CBN.com Virginia Beach, VA - April 2, 2005]
The late Chuck Colson of Prison Fellowship was another well known ecumenical compromiser, and one of the main people involved in the ECT (Evangelicals and Catholics Together) document of 1994. Chuck made this statement after the death of Pope John Paul ll:
“Pope John Paul ll was one of the truly heroic figures of the 20th Century … I had the honor of meeting his Holiness, and I have been part of a collaborative fellowship called Evangelicals and Catholics Together … “[Prison Fellowship Newsroom, Press Kit, Washington, April 2,2005]
What an incredible contrast are the statements of Pat Robertson and Chuck Colson, compared to that which was spoken by Pastor Minto, who was fired from his radio program. I believe that there will be much more of this type of thing happening in the coming days, as the apostasy snowball gathers incredible speed.
Dr Henry Halley was a man who had a strong conviction that everyone ought to read the Bible. He is best known as being the author of the ”Halley’s Bible Handbook” which has sold over 5 million copies over the years. Halley’s Bible handbook started out as a 16 page booklet and it ultimately grew into a 864 page almanac of Biblical information. Near the back of that book there is a small section (pages 757-804) on Church History, which contains the true history of the gross wickedness of the Popes and the Papal persecutions. It also contains the history of those who rebelled against Rome, and sought to reform it. Here are some excerpts from Dr Halley’s book:
“The Papacy’s methods: It brought itself to power through the prestige of Rome, and the name of Christ, and by shrewd political alliances, and by deception, and by armed force; and by Armed Force and Bloodshed has maintained itself in power.”
“The story of the Papacy has been written as a background to the Reformation, in the belief that we ought to be familiar with the wherefore of the Protestant movement and the Historical foundations of our Protestant Faith. Some of the things told herein seem Unbelievable. It seems inconceivable that men could take the religion of Christ and develop it into an Unscrupulous Political Machine on which to ride to World Power. However, all the statements made herein may be verified by reference to any of the complete Church Histories.” [Halley's Bible Handbook, 24th Edition, Zondervan Publishers, pages 783-784]
In her well documented book entitled “Billy Graham And His Friends” Dr. Cathy Burns wrote the following concerning the well known Evangelist, Billy Graham:
“Not only does Graham not attack the falseness in the Catholic Church, but he even protects the wrong. For instance . . . around 1961, Billy Graham bought the rights to Halley’s Pocket Bible Handbook. The original Halley’s up until the 22nd Edition (1959), warned about the Jesuits. There are chapters about the Roman Papacy, and the Jesuits. According to Mrs Halley, Mr Halley spent years working on those chapters and never would have permitted the book to be changed. However when he died, Billy Graham bought the rights, and REMOVED all the research and warning about the Jesuits in the editions Billy Graham printed.” [Billy Graham and His Friends, 2001, by Dr. Cathy Burns published by Sharing]
I went online to see if I could get a hold of a copy of the Billy Graham Edition, which Cathy Burns had mentioned in her book. I found the book online (Billy Graham Crusade Edition 1962) and purchased it at an excellent price, just to see if what she wrote about was true. I already owned a hard cover copy of Halley’s Handbook which contains the information about Rome, and I compared that book with the Billy Graham edition and sure enough, that WHOLE SECTION on Church History was missing! All of the information on the Papal persecutions and the history of the Popes was nowhere to be found. It was as if those pages never existed in that handbook! Watch This VIDEO ON SAME TOPIC!
My wife Cathy and I trained and worked as Christian Counselors for the 1991 Billy Graham Crusade in Central Park, New York City. When a person makes a “decision” for Christ at the end of the meeting they are given a card to fill out by the Counselors. Cathy gave a card to one young lady who had raised her hand, and the lady filled out the card, and put down her local Roman Catholic Church on the card. The Billy Graham organization will then send that lady back to that very same church.
A fisherman will often use what is known as a “lure” to try to catch fish. Some of the “lures” that I have seen in the stores are very colorful and attractive. They are made that way because the purpose of the “lure” is to entice and snare the fish, through the promise of the bait. The fish is not aware of the very sharp hook that hides beneath the soft colorful brushlike hairs which hide it very well. Christians are being “lured” into a FALSE and very dangerous UNITY with the system known as Roman Catholicism. The undiscerning Christian is totally unaware of the deceitful “hook” that is hiding under the “lure” of the colorful UNITY of ALL “Christians” and ultimately ALL religions. They are ignorant and unaware that this DEMONIC deception is geared to the very destruction of their own eternal soul. We would do well to remember the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, which he spoke before he was killed:
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. (Matthew 24:3-4)
