Roman Catholicism—The Deadliest Religion!

by David J. Stewart

Matthew 15:8, “This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.”

       Roman Catholicism is the deadliest religion on earth—more deadly than a thermonuclear bomb, more deadly than Bubonic Plague, more deadly than a world war, more deadly than most people's worst nightmare. Why you say? It's because Roman Catholicism is the biggest false religion in the world, boasting of having 1,000,000,000 followers. ONE BILLION!!! The Catholic religion is so deadly because it is so popular.

Roman Catholicism is a part of the New World Order, working toward World Government. This is why all recent popes since the 1950's have taught that you don't even need Biblical faith to get to Heaven.

Countless billions-upon-billions of Roman Catholics have already perished in their sins and are bring tormented in the fires of Hell (Hades). Oh, the loss of humanity! Oh, the loss of precious souls! From the cradle-to-the-casket, Catholicism has a religious package for everyone; but it's a raw deal my friend, as crooked as a dog's hind leg. Jesus warned in the holy Scriptures about self-righteous, religious, unsaved, deceivers and liars...

Matthew 5:20, “For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.”

Wow, that's a powerful statement! Jesus warned the people that they'd never enter into Heaven unless they had more righteousness than the scribes and Pharisees (the religious leaders, lawyers and judges of the day). Jesus was talking about the Pharisee's own self-righteousness, which cannot save anyone. The Bible teaches that no man has any righteousness of his own. “THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NO, NOT ONE(Romans 3:10; Ecclesiastes 7:20). This is why we need HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, that is, the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ which is passed onto our record the very moment that we get saved.

Matthew 6:33, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Whew, I love that Bible Verse! Amen! Also, we read the wonderful words of life in 2nd Corinthians 5:21...

2nd Corinthians 5:21, “For he [God the Father] hath made him [Jesus the Son] to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

And one more of my favorite Scriptures from the awesome Book of Romans...

Romans 3:3,5-6, “For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. ... But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works.”

Wow, God IMPUTES righteousness to a sinner WITHOUT WORKS!!! In other words, salvation is a free gift that you don't have to do anything to have, accept receive it by faith in the gospel (good news) of Jesus Christ crucified, buried and risen.

The 'Seven Sacraments' Are Of The Devil

Roman Catholicism is a completely different situation, where a person is required to keep Seven Sacraments of the Catholic Church to enter Heaven. The following is heresy as taught on a Catholic website...

Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, as we are born of the water and the Spirit. Baptism is necessary for salvation (John 3:5) ...

The sacraments were instituted by Christ and were part of the Liturgical Tradition of the early Christian Church. The Church celebrates in her liturgy the Paschal mystery of Christ, his Sacrifice on the Cross, Death and Resurrection. The Greek word μυστήριον or mystery in the Greek New Testament is translated into sacramentum in the Latin Vulgate Bible, from which we derive our English word sacrament (examples: Ephesians 1:9, Ephesians 3:9, Colossians 1:27). The saving effects of Christ's Redemption on the Cross are communicated through the sacraments, especially in the liturgical celebration of the Eucharist. The sacraments to this day are called mysteries in the Eastern Churches.

Roman Catholic, Eastern Catholic, as well as Eastern Orthodox Churches all recognize the seven sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Eucharist, Penance, the Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders, and Matrimony. The three sacraments of Christian Initiation are Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist. The two sacraments of Healing are Penance and the Anointing of the Sick, and the two sacraments of Vocation are Holy Orders and Marriage. Three sacraments, Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Orders, are given once, as they render a permanent seal or character upon one's soul (2 Corinthians 1:21-22, Ephesians 4:30, Revelations 7:3).


Did you read that? ... Catholics teach that you MUST be water baptized to get into Heaven. What a lie of the Devil. If you ADD the Seven Sacraments to your faith, then you're not going to go to Heaven (because you're trusting in the manmade traditions of the Catholic Church). The Vatican LIES and DECEIVES people, claiming that Jesus initiated the Seven Sacraments; but there is NO EVIDENCE to support that claim. In fact, the Bible condemns such claims as bold-faced lies of Satan. There are hundreds of Scriptures; such as Ephesians 2:8-9....

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.”

The Scriptures are clear that salvation is a gift without self-righteous works. The Catholic Church is so full of crap that all recent popes have taught that you don't even need Biblical faith to get to Heaven. Here's evidence that the Vatican makes their religion up as they go, changing whatever they don't like to fit their wicked agendas.

Hail Mary! Hail Satan!

Adding Water Baptism As A Requirement For Salvation Is A Corrupt Gospel

Getting baptized with water doesn't make you a Christian anymore than walking into a garage makes you an automobile. Solid proof that water baptism is NOT necessary for salvation is found in the Epistle of 1st John....

1st John 5:11-13, “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; THAT YE MAY KNOW THAT YE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.”

Did you read that? ... The apostle John penned 1st John (writing under the inspiration of God's Holy Spirit) to help believers make sure they are saved. John wrote to them to help them KNOW, beyond any shadow-of-a-doubt that they are indeed born-again and on their way to Heaven. Now, having said that, consider carefully that John NEVER mentions water baptism even once. In fact, John never mentions the word “baptism” in all three Epistles of 1st, 2nd nor 3rd John... not even once! That speaks volumes against the false doctrine of baptismal Regeneration!!!

Roman Catholicism is the unsaved man's religion. In Catholicism you can live like the Devil and then go into a confessional booth (I call them telephone booths) and confess your sins to some heathen priest who's saturated with sins himself. I get sick everytime I read about John Corapi absolving his own biological father's sins (because the dad went to Hell thinking that his son forgave his sins, which is impossible).

Catholicism falsely claims that Jesus initiated the Seven Sacraments (as taught in the earlier quote I gave you). It's all manmade traditions (Mark 7:6-13), doctrines of devils (1st Timothy 4:1-4). The word “sacrament” doesn't exist in the Bible. The Scriptures only teach two ordinances: water baptism and the Lord's Supper. These are NOT sacraments. A sacrament is believed to bestow a special grace (or power) upon the recipient. However, no such practices are found nor taught in God's Word. Roman Catholics have been lied to century-after-century concerning God, the Bible, the truth and everything concerning THE TRUTH.

Jesus rebuked the religious leaders—frauds, self-righteous hypocrites, who took away the truth of God's Word from the people; instead leading them into unsuspecting spiritual graves, the blind leading the blind into Hell's destruction and everlasting fire...

Luke 11:52, “Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.”

Luke 11:44, “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.”

Deceived Catholic souls sinfully idolizing (worshipping) Pope John Paul II. The Bible tells us Who we are supposed to bow before, only JESUS CHRIST...

“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth.” —Philippians 2:10

If that's not enough Biblical evidence to convince you of the sin of bowing before the pope, then please take to heart the 2nd of the Ten Commandments as given in Exodus of the Old Testament...

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 Bible condemns and forbids even BOWING oneself to any image of any thing or any person. To bow is the sin of idolatry. I've witnessed the gospel to umpteen unsaved Catholics throughout my life and very few ever come to the knowledge of the truth. The reason is not because they're innocently naive concerning the truth of the Scriptures; but rather, they have a wicked heart of unbelief and just don't care. Jesus confirmed this in Mark 7:9,

Mark 7:9, “And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.”

There you have it! Jesus said, you just don't care!!! You just don't care about the truth. You just don't care about pleasing God. You just don't care about the things of Jesus Christ (Philippians 2:20-21).

Some Catholics have heard the gospel preached over and over from Christians outside of the prisonhouse of Catholicism. Their heart is hard, calloused and they'll likely never come to Jesus Christ. They are completely comfortable in false religion. If their priest ever got saved and started preaching the truth of the Bible, such hard-hearted Catholics would leave immediately. Catholic churches are very popular in poorer countries,

Luke 11:44, “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.”

Confirmation Doesn't Give You The Holy Spirit

The following heresy is quoted from the ETERNAL WORD TELEVISION NETWORK (EWTN)...

Christ's gift of the Holy Spirit is going to be poured out upon you in a particular way. You will hear the words of the Church spoken over you, calling upon the Holy Spirit to confirm your faith, to seal you in his love, to strengthen you for his service. You will then take your place among fellow-Christians throughout the world, full citizens now of the People of God. You will witness to the truth of the Gospel in the name of Jesus Christ. You will live your lives in such a way as to make holy all human life. Together with all the confirmed, you will become living stones in the cathedral of peace. Indeed you will be called by God to be instruments of his peace.

As you just read, Catholics are taught that the Holy Spirit comes into their life at the ceremony of CONFIRMATION. This is a doctrine of devils, as are most Catholic teachings. Romans 8:9, “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.” The very moment that you receive Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit indwells your body forever. 1st Corinthians 3:17, “If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.” Every believer's body is a temple of the Holy Spirit. Romans 8:9 refers to the Holy Spirit as the “Spirit of Christ.” Amen!

So remember that, you get the Holy Spirit the second you become a born-again Christian. The Catholic teaching of confirmation is unbiblical, just as are sacraments. Confirmation is a heathen manmade tradition which does absolutely nothing except trick you into thinking you've done something meaningful for God. In reality, you've allowed Satan to brainwash you. It is tragic that so many foolish people have swallowed Satan's bait... hook, line and sinker! Gotcha!!!

The Gospel is the Power of God Unto Salvation to Him That Believeth

Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”

The vilest heathens are professing to be Christians these days, but they are liars. They speak of God in generic terms, having a form of godliness but DENYING THE POWER THEREOF (2nd Timothy 3:5). MANY people today falsely profess to be born-again Christians, sincerely thinking that they are now a Christian because they've embraced the teachings of Christianity.

However, being truly born-again by the Spirit of God (Romans 8:9) by the seed of the Word of God (1st Peter 1:23) is a miracle of God (John 1:12-13). Be wary of anybody's profess of Christian faith who is hesitant to acknowledge their sinnership; who doesn't talk about the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord. Be wary if a professed Christian never mentions the Holy Spirit. When a person truly repents toward God to be forgiven of their sins, the Spirit of God comes to indwell that person forever. 1st John 4:13, “Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.”

2nd Timothy 3:5 warns of false believers who HAVE A FORM OF GODLINESS (an outward appearance of being a Christian), but DENY THE POWER THEREOF. That “power” is the gospel of Jesus Christ (Romans 1:16), which is defined in 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 as the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Be wary of people who claim they prayed a sinner's prayer. They may be saved, or not. Prayer by itself doesn't save. It's believing in one's heart that Jesus died, was buried and rose again for your sins that saves a person (Romans 10:9-10 - King James Bible only). Proverbs 16:5, “Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.”

Darkness cannot stand light and the Bible is that precious Light! Psalms 119:105, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” The Bible defines the gospel as the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ...

1st Corinthians 15:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”

If you ADD anything to the gospel, you've corrupted it. The Seven Sacraments are not a part of the gospel. Church membership is not a part of the gospel. Sorrow for one's sins is not a part of the gospel. Amending one's ways, forsaking the world, surrendering all to Christ are not a part of the gospel. The gospel is that Jesus died, was buried and rose up three days later. If you receive what Christ did for you as payment for your sins, then you are saved my friend.

Idol Worship Is The Sin Of Idolatry!

The Bible declares that at the name of Jesus Christ should every knee bow...NOT at the name of Mary or the Pope.

“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth.” —Philippians 2:10

Don't tell me that Catholicism doesn't worship Mary!!! The above photo says it all. Pope John Paul II worshipped Our Lady of Fatima (Mary) and not the Lord Jesus Christ. Again below. The average Catholic is brainwashed with Catechism training and knows little about the Bible. The Bible is clear that we are to bow at the name of Jesus (and NO other). Catholicism is Mary worship! In a standard Rosary prayer, a Catholic will praise Mary 53 times (hail Mary's). Bowing to a statue of Mary is evil.

I plead with you to consider your ways if you are a Catholic. Salvation is NOT found in a religion; but rather, in a Person—The Lord Jesus Christ. Eternal life is a free gift from God (Romans 5:15; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9), paid for by Jesus' literal, precious, blood (1st Peter 1:18-19; Hebrews 9:12,22-24; Revelation 1:5). Salvation is receiving, not giving (John 1:12). It's not what you're doing that gets you to Heaven; it's where you're looking (Isaiah 45:22). Look to Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God!

In one respect, there are only two religions in the world: DO and DONE. Either you believe that you must DO something to merit Heaven; or else you believe what the Bible teaches, i.e., that redemption is DONE, completed in Christ Jesus. It's all been done my friend. Salvation has been paid for! All you need to do is receive Jesus as the Christ, the Son of God. That is not a self-righteous work; but rather, resting upon the finished work of Christ. John 6:29, “Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.”

A Picture Says It All

John 20:31, “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
