Refuse to believe this at your own PERIL
There is only ‘one Lord, one Faith, one baptism’ (Eph 4:5), not 38,000 plus “Christian” religions that contradict each other and are in defiance to God’s intentions. One should not imagine that every religion offers the means to arrive at eternal happiness; and they should understand that, according to the testimony of the Savior Himself, ‘he that is not with Me is against Me’ and he that gathereth not with me, scattereth. (Luke 11:23).
St Athanasius: “it is not to be doubted that they will perish eternally if they do not profess the Catholic Faith and if they do not guard it entire and inviolate”
Pope Eugene IV: “The Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that all those who are outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatic’s, cannot have a share in eternal happiness; but that they will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the Devil and his Angels (Matt 25: 41), unless they unite themselves to the Church before their death; and that so precious is the unity of this ecclesiastical body that only those who abide in it can benefit from the Church’s Sacraments for their salvation, and that they alone can receive an eternal recompense for their fasts, almsgiving and other works of piety and practices of the Christian militancy. No one, no matter how much he has given in alms and even if he has shed blood for the name of Christ, can be saved, unless he has persevered in the bosom and the unity of the Catholic Church.” Emphasis added
The following are God’s Words and teachings taken from Scripture:
“I have other sheep, which are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will hear My voice; and they will become one flock with one shepherd”.
Matthew 7:15, 16
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. By their fruits you shall know them”
St. Paul cried out aloud, again and again, to all men, to all times, and to all places that, “if anyone announces a new dogma, let him be anathematized!”
The wicked are alienated from the womb; they have gone astray from the womb; they have spoken false things.”
“Woe to you when men shall bless you: for according to these things did their fathers to the false prophets
Our Lord said: “Thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Our previous blog from Sunday, January 10, 2021 sums it all up...
You, who won’t accept God’s one and only True Church, the Holy Catholic Church (not the fake Novus Ordo “Catholic Church” or Traditional Catholic Churches that circumvent or refuse to teach the Words taught by Jesus, the Apostles and the Church Fathers) or you, who have abandoned the True Catholic Church and became a heretic or joined a Protestant sect or non-Christian religion. Make no mistake about it--unless you repent, convert and adhere to the teachings of the true Catholic Church, you cannot escape Hell!
Give serious thought to this question: Did Jesus die on the Cross so that He could establish 38,000+ churches’ teaching different gospels? Or did He die on the Cross to save souls in His one and only Catholic Church? Know this--our Lords Words when describing His Church were always singular, not plural.
God is not the author of confusion. He did not establish thousands of churches to teach gospels with many disagreeing and competing teachings—He established only one church—The Holy Catholic Church. It’s not reasonable to believe, in fact, it’s actually sinful (heretical) to believe that Jesus intended for man to interpret His Words in a kaleidoscope manner. The Catholic faith is an all-or-nothing-proposition. Just as one mortal sin destroys grace in the soul, so does just one heresy destroy grace to your soul and place you outside of God’s Church. If Protestant logic does not recognize such erroneous construing of God’s Word…then the Bible does. Here’s what Scripture teaches:
“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach a gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema. As we said before, so now I say again: If any one preach to you a gospel, besides that which you have received, let him be anathema.” (Galatians 1:8-9)
“Be not led away with various and strange doctrines.”(Hebrews 13:9)
And here’s what God’s one and only True Church teaches:
Pope Pius IX (1846): “Also perverse is that shocking theory that it makes no difference to which religion one belongs, a theory greatly at variance even with reason. By means of this theory, those crafty men remove all distinction between virtue and vice, truth and error, honorable and vile action. They pretend that men can gain eternal salvation by the practice of any religion, as if there would ever be any sharing between justice and iniquity, any collaboration between light and darkness, or any agreement between Christ and Belial.” (Qui Pluribus #15, Nov. 9, 1846)
Protestantism and all other religions are floccinaucinihilipilification.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, floccinaucinihilipilification is the longest non-technical word in the English language. It means an estimation of something as worthless.
The Catholic teaching is this: “The Church of Christ is the Roman Catholic Church, which is the unique means of salvation in the world. Any religion outside of the Roman Catholic Church, whether Greek Orthodox, Protestants, Jews, etc., despite whatever truths they may possess, or even valid sacraments, are false religions and are not means of salvation”. They are worthless!
Common sense should tell you that Jesus is Truth and would not condone a gospel different from His own. Thus, it’s not possible that Our Lord would allow an end run around His Church by false churches’ that teach a smorgasbord of false doctrines other than what He taught. Jesus established only one Church--the Holy Catholic Church. Every other church is a false church established by Satan so that he can take non believers to Hell with him. Pay close attention to this warning. Don’t be misled; your salvation depends upon it.
