Why Roman Catholics Don't Listen To The Truth?






Where Will The Roman Catholic People Go After Their Death, Heaven Or Hell?


Question : Praise the Lord, Pastor. Roman catholic people are seeking Mary more than the Lord Jesus!! They give more importance to idols, if we tell them that they are doing wrong things because these are against God and his Laws, they are not listening...I have doubt whether someone in this world can see Jesus face to face because we are still unholy. But Catholic people say that they are seeking daily Jesus face. What they are doing, is it right? My BIG DOUBT is, where will the Roman Catholic people go after their death, heaven or hell and that includes holy pope too! I think, you understood my questions, please explain me this Biblically, so I can save my family & my catholic church friends! Thank you.

Answer : Greetings to you in Jesus name dear Brother! Praise the Lord! Roman Catholic people are seeking Mary more than Jesus because they still do not have clear light to see it and are in darkness. Jesus clearly said,
" 22 “The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!" (Matt 6:22-23). The spiritual eye within our spirit-man is the lamp of God to illuminate us in the right path of God (Prov 20:27), if that spiritual eyes are opened within us by believing Jesus Christ as our one and only Lord and Savior of our lives (Rom 10:8-13), our whole body will be full of the light of the life of God from heaven (John 1:4-5). But if that spiritual eye lies blind in the natural state of sinfulness and lack of salvation due to Satanic deception of false light as in the case of the Roman Catholic Church (2 Cor 11:14-15), Jesus says how great is the deceptive darkness of Satan more than the other forms of darkness he has projected to keep the world in his grip of destruction. Jesus never appears to anybody to give them entertainment as in the case of many Catholics saying that they are seeking the face of Jesus, but to turn them from darkness in which they are, to the light which turns their lives upside down radically and makes them see as they are as in the eyes of God rather than as they suppose it to be (Acts 26:16-18).

Roman Catholics give more importance than Jesus because they wrongly believe certain facts and have twisted it to make it seem real. Here are some of them, Mary has been deified by the Roman Catholics. Mary the mother of Jesus was described by God as
“highly favored” (Luke 1:28), which really means that she was given much grace to deliver the Son of God who is her Lord from Heaven and the Savior of the world (Luke 1:47; 1 Cor 15:47). Mary was a normal human being like anyone of us, but was chosen by God and was considered a Blessed Woman because she obeyed God's voice immediately (Luke 1:28, 30, 38, 45). Mary was a sinful human being who needed Jesus Christ as her Savior, just like as all of us human beings (Ecclesiastes 7:20; Romans 3:23; 6:23; 1 John 1:8).

The official statement of the Roman Catholic doctrine reads, “The blessed Virgin Mary to have been, from the first instant of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege of Almighty God, in view of the merits of Christ Jesus the Savior of Mankind, preserved free from all stain of original sin.” In other words, the Roman Catholics believe that Mary was protected from original sin from birth, so Mary did not have a sin nature, and was, in fact, sinless. The above statement is blasphemous to the very core, as it takes away the uniqueness of the one and only Son of God Jesus Christ who is God Himself and the only sinless human being born after the first man Adam who was created by God and fell into sin, Jesus Christ is the only person named the last man Adam born without original sin in His human make up within Him because He was God Himself who became human
(2 Cor 5:21; 1 Cor 15:45, 47; 1 Tim 2:5). God finds error even with angels who are His perfect creation, such is the holiness and demand for perfection from God (Job 4:18; Leviticus 11:44,45; 20:26), that He Himself only could save humans from sins by fulfilling the demand of the righteous requirement that His holiness requires (Joshua 24:19; 1 Sam 2:2; Isa 59:2).

The problem with this doctrine of the Immaculate Conception is that it came out of human reasoning of how Jesus Christ could be born sinless if He was conceived inside of a sinful human female. But humans forget to believe that all things are possible with God especially things that are impossible with men
(Luke 1:37; Matt 19:26; Mark 10:27). The Roman Catholic Church argues that the Immaculate Conception is necessary because without it, Jesus would have been the object of His own grace. This they say because of the lack of understanding that Jesus was not just born in human body, but within that human body the spirit-man in whom resided the person of eternal God's Son who was not born but was given to humanity by God from heaven (Isa 9:6; John 3:13, 34; 6:38; 42, 58, 62; Col 2:9). That spirit-man was sinless within him, and sin could not have dominion over Him unless He would have fallen in to sin by taking the bait that Satan threw (Rom 5:12). If Jesus would have got conceived by a natural father on earth, he would have had sin (Matt 1:24-25; Luke 3:23). But He got conceived in Mary's womb when she was overshadowed by the Holy Spirit who took Him from heaven and kept Him inside the womb of Mary (Luke 1:34-35). Sin nature is passed on through the father (Rom 5:12; Heb 7:9-10). So inspite of Mary being a sinful women, God could bring a baby who is sinless in to this world because of the supernatural conception that happened in which Jesus was encased with flesh suit to live on earth and fulfill God's purpose to save humanity (Heb 10:5-7). The spirit-man was alive and well within Jesus without sin, even though His outer covering was in the likeness of the sinful flesh which is the likeness of men but not the production source of men which is actually the seed of the Father (Rom 6:23; Php 2:7; Heb 2:14). Because Jesus was the seed of the woman He could live without sin nature overpowering over Him and condemned sin in the flesh (Rom 8:3; Gen 3:15). "The iniquity of the fathers upon the children" (Exod 20:5), could not come upon Him because of the supernatural conception of Jesus through a woman without the intervention of any man. Jesus fought against sin in His flesh and condemned it on behalf of all humans, now we as saints in Jesus Christ can choose to live free from the power of sin like Jesus Himself (Eph 2:14-15; Col1:19-22; Heb 10:19-22; 1 Peter 2:18; Rom 6:14).

The Bible nowhere indicates that Mary can hear our prayers or that she can mediate for us with God. Infact, the Bible clearly says that Jesus is our one and only advocate and mediator in heaven
(1 Timothy 2:5; 1 John 2:1). Mary also had other children and they were all born when she had relationship with her husband Joseph, because the word "until" is used in Matt 1:25 to indicate that Joseph had no bodily relationship with Mary till Jesus was born, this clearly shows that only Jesus was conceived without any human intervention as Mary was a pure virgin only at that time until she gave birth to Jesus (Matthew 13:55-56; Luke 1:34-38). This above exposition shows how much lies have been perpetrated and proclaimed within the walls of the Roman Catholic Church.

I believe why God has allowed the deception upon the Catholic Church which does not believe the truth of the Word of God but has pleasure in unrighteousness of conducting Church as a business entity around the world is because they do not have the love of the truth so that it might lead them to true salvation
(2 Thess 2:10-12). Catholic Church is the Babylon the Great which is picturised as "THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH", and she has always been the persecutor of the true Church of Jesus Christ (Rev 17:1-6). God will judge it to complete destruction and desolation in a single day during the soon coming time of the period of the one world government in which Anti-Christ will rule the whole earth (Rev 17:13-18; 18:1-24). Catholic Church is mixed with idolatry because it is not the true Church, any born again person within the Catholic Church cannot worship idols without being convicted of their sin and so will come out of it sooner or later to follow the Lord and worship Him in spirit and in truth which is the only acceptable form of worship which God expects all men on earth to do (John 16:7-11; 1 John 3:8-9, John 4:23-24).

Jesus also have confirmed the above facts we have discussed by saying,
"27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. 28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. 30 I and My Father are one.”" (John 10:27-28). In other words, all true born again believers in Christ Jesus will hear the voice of Jesus, the Lord will know them personally, they also will follow Jesus in obeying His voice that they will hear within their heart. Once a person is born again by Jesus giving them eternal life, they can never perish spiritually in their lives because of sin, demons and the world. No Satan or any demons from hell can be able to snatch them away from the sovereign control of Jesus because all authority in heaven and earth is held by Him (Matt 28:18). As Jesus and Father God in heaven are working together to fulfill the same purpose of the will of God to be done on earth as it is in heaven, no one can overpower God and will be able to take a Christian out of the secure eternal salvation from sin that He has provided to all who have believed Him unto life (John 10:9-10).

Yes outwardly the Catholic people who have a form of godliness but deny its transforming power might say that they are seeking the face of Jesus daily
(2 Tim 3:5), but in reality their heart is far away from Jesus because of disobedience to the true words and commands of Jesus (Matt 15:8). The Lord has clearly told that without true holiness in life, no one will be able to see God and His righteous activities in their life (Heb 12:14). So when they say that they seek Jesus face, they are really seeking some other bogus Jesus whom they consider as an infant subordinate to the demonic Mary image idol, the real Jesus they never personally or intimately experienced because they are not His obedient sheep who hear His voice or follow Him (Gal 1:6-8; 2 Cor 11:4). The Lord knows those who are His, and all those people who are His sheep whether they are still in Catholic Church or in any other cult, they cannot stay there for long and will therefore depart from iniquity of idolatry and disobedience of false doctrines as they are sealed by God with the Holy Spirit who are the only true followers who not only call themselves with the name of the Lord in addition to their name but with their life testimony, which is what it means to be a real Christian (2 Tim 2:19).

So all Catholic people who are not born again still fail to accept themselves as sinners in need of the one and only Savior Jesus
(John 3:3-8), but continue in their so called religiosity will without doubt go to hell fire where the fire quencheth not and worms die not (Mark 9:45-46). All those Catholics who seek God through Jesus without their clouded mind of seeking God's forgiveness through Mary, will be saved from sin unto salvation (John 6:17; 14:6) and what I say includes pope.

Regarding the salvation of your parents, you cannot speak them in to salvation. But as you are following Jesus, let them see your changed life. This will make a great impact in their lives and will turn them towards our true Savior and Lord Jesus Christ
(1 Peter 3:1). Above all, keep praying for your family to be saved, soon the Holy Spirit will prepare and soften their heart towards the truth of God and will save them in their day of their salvation (1 Tim 2:1-4; 1 Pet 2:12; 2 Cor 6:1-2). Jesus encouraged us to ask the Lord of harvest to supply the salvation bread for our friends and families to be saved (Luke 11:5-8; John 6:44, 48-51), above all He said that persistence is the key for salvation of all for whom we pray to God. So may God use you to bless and save your family from the deception that they are in!

Much Blessings....
