The Mass is Blasphemy and Heresy
The crucifixion of Jesus Christ happened ONE TIME. Jesus died ONE TIME for the sins of the whole world. Not MANY times, as in the Roman mass. They call Jesus Christ, "The Victim" and the priest supposedly has the power to slay Him on Romish altars over and over again. They supposedly call Jesus out of Heaven, into a piece of bread and some wine, so that the people can eat and digest His literal flesh and drink His literal blood--this is the mass. The Catholic mass is NOT the remembrance of the sacrifice of Jesus (as taught in Luke 22:19). Instead, it is alleged to be THE sacrifice of Jesus in the "species" of the bread and wine. The bread and wine are supposedly "transubstantiated," or changed into flesh and blood. Roman Catholic doctrine claims the whole body, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ are in the bread that they eat. In other words, papists believe that they are cannibals--even though the bread still tastes like bread and the wine tastes like wine. Blasphemy! Heresy!
The sacrifice of Jesus Christ was a ONE TIME EVENT.
Some papists erroneously refer to John chapter 6 to support their cannibalism called the mass. However, Jesus never taught us to literally eat Him. He simply asked us to REMEMBER Him (Luke 22:19). In John 10:9, Jesus claims to be the DOOR into Heaven; BUT, it is obvious that He's not a wooden or metal door. Likewise, Jesus is the bread of life, not an actual loaf of bread. It's amazing what ignorance will allow people to believe.
Romanism preaches a gospel that Paul did not preach.
Galatians 1:6-9, "I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is NOT another; but there be some that trouble you, and would PERVERT the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed."
It is not another gospel but a perversion of the gospel of Christ...get yourself a King James Bible and ask the Lord to open up your eyes--if it so be that you love truth. Ask Jesus Christ to make His truth abundantly clear to you. Look at everything full in the face, if truth is what you seek. If you are just one more priest/Jesuit that wants a living from the Great Whore of Catholicism, then this article will probably mean nothing to you and you'll look high and low for a way to eradicate the truth you read.
The basis for any discussion must be the truth. The God of the Bible says His word is truth and that it cannot be broken.
John 17:17, "Sanctify them through thy truth: THY WORD IS TRUTH."
Psalm 138:2, "I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy WORD ABOVE ALL THY NAME." (The name God means a lot and if He hath magnified His word ABOVE His name, we better embrace it. All who do not, do so at their own peril.)
God's Word is so complete, so high and so holy that it cannot be broken--
"...the scripture cannot be broken" ... John 10:35
In fact, it does the breaking, that's why it is so easy to bust up Romish blasphemies--
Jeremiah 23:29, "Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?"
One glaring blasphemy is the mass. The so-called unbloody sacrifice of Jesus Christ. You priests supposedly have the power to call Jesus out of heaven and into a piece of bread and some wine. He is supposedly "transubstantiated" under the "species" of the bread and wine. Supposedly His whole body (guts, toenails, eyeballs, etc.), soul and divinity fit into a piece of bread so that He can be sacrificed on your altars and you can eat Him in cannibalism. Some of you even call Him "The Victim". This is blasphemy of the FIRST order.
Hebrews tells us that the Old Testament sacrifices were imperfect so they had to be offered over and over again--
Hebrews 10:3-4, "But in those [animal] sacrifices there is a REMEMBRANCE again made of sins every year. For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins."
You are supposedly sacrificing Jesus over and over again making a remembrance of sins over and over (Hebrews 10:3). The blood of those bulls and goats had to be offered over and over because they could never take away sins--and that's what you papists imply about the blood of Jesus through your mass [that it can't take away sins]. What blasphemy!
Hebrews tells us that the sacrifice of Jesus Christ was perfect, so it had to be done ONE TIME ONLY--
Hebrews 9:25-28, "Nor yet that he should offer himself OFTEN, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now ONCE in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was ONCE offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation."
Hebrews 10:8 "Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;
10:9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.
10:10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ ONCE FOR ALL.
10:11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
10:12 But this man, after he had offered ONE sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;
10:13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
10:14 For BY ONE OFFERING HE HATH PERFECTED FOR EVER THEM THAT ARE SANCTIFIED.
10:15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
10:16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
10:17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
10:18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
10:19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,
10:20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
10:21 And having an high priest over the house of God;
10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
10:24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
Hebrews 7:22 By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.
7:26 For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
7:27 Who needeth NOT daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did ONCE, when he offered up himself.
7:28 For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.
Amen and hallelujah to that. The Bible says to let the truth be established in the mouths of two or three witnesses. John recorded--
John 19:30, "When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. "
The sacrifice was FINISHED at the Mercy Seat in Heaven, when Jesus applied His blood to it.
1st Peter 3:18, "For Christ also hath ONCE suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit."
Romans 6:10, "For in that he died, he died unto sin ONCE: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God."
The Bible makes it abundantly clear that the sacrifice is not ongoing. [Then what about the Romish mass?]
1 Corinthians 10:20, "But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils."
Suffer the Word. If you refuse it,
Isaiah 8:20, "To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. "
"For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now ONCE in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself." -Hebrews 9:26
Ye Must Be Born Again!
