The Marion Dogmas

The Truth is only found in scripture, and if you can’t locate a dogma in the Holy Scriptures then it I not Truth! The Roman Catholic Church is apostate and has what is named the “Marion Dogma’s” and they have no Biblical Basis! Remember the daunting scripture in 1 Corinthians.

1 Corinthians 4:6
6 Now these things, brethren, I have figuratively applied to myself and Apollos for your sakes, so that in us you may learn not to exceed what is written, so that no one of you will become [e]arrogant in behalf of one against the other.

You are not to exceed what is written!
I will quote the Roman Catholic Church’s own documents.

1. Mary is the Mother of God.

“Mary is truly “Mother of God” since she is the mother of the eternal Son of God made man, who is God himself,” (CCC 509).

“Called in the Gospels “the mother of Jesus,” Mary is acclaimed by Elizabeth, at the prompting of the Spirit and even before the birth of her son, as “the mother of my Lord.” In fact, the One whom she conceived as man by the Holy Spirit, who truly became her Son according to the flesh, was none other than the Father’s eternal Son, the second person of the Holy Trinity. Hence the Church confesses that Mary is truly “Mother of God” (Theotokos),” (CCC 495).

2. Mary was a virgin for her entire life; Perpetual Virginity.

“Mary “remained a virgin in conceiving her Son, a virgin in giving birth to him, a virgin in carrying him, a virgin in nursing him at her breast, always a virgin” (St. Augustine, Sermon. 186, 1: PL 38, 999): with her whole being she is “the handmaid of the Lord” (Lk 1:38),” (CCC 510).

“The deepening of faith in the virginal motherhood led the Church to confess Mary’s real and perpetual virginity even in the act of giving birth to the Son of God made man. In fact, Christ’s birth “did not diminish his mother’s virginal integrity but sanctified it.” And so the liturgy of the Church celebrates Mary as Aeiparthenos, the “Ever-virgin,” (CCC 499).

3. The Immaculate Conception. That Mary remained without sin or stain and was redeemed at conception.

“Finally the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things, so that she might be the more fully conformed to her Son, the Lord of lords and conqueror of sin and death.” The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin is a singular participation in her Son’s Resurrection and an anticipation of the resurrection of other Christians: In giving birth you kept your virginity; in your Dormition, you did not leave the world, O Mother of God, but were joined to the source of Life. You conceived the living God and, by your prayers, will deliver our souls from death,” (CCC 966).

“Through the centuries the Church has become ever more aware that Mary, “full of grace” through God, was redeemed from the moment of her conception. That is what the dogma of the Immaculate Conception confesses, as Pope Pius IX proclaimed in 1854: The most Blessed Virgin Mary was, from the first moment of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege of almighty God and by virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race, preserved immune from all stain of original sin,” (CCC 491).

4. The Bodily Assumption of Mary.

“The Sunday celebration of the Lord’s Day and his Eucharist is at the heart of the Church’s life. “Sunday is the day on which the paschal mystery is celebrated in light of the apostolic tradition and is to be observed as the foremost holy day of obligation in the universal Church.” (1167; 2043) “Also to be observed are the day of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Epiphany, the Ascension of Christ, the feast of the Body and Blood of Christi, the feast of Mary the Mother of God, her Immaculate Conception, her Assumption, the feast of Saint Joseph, the feast of the Apostles Saints Peter and Paul, and the feast of All Saints,” (CCC 2177).

“Finally, the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things, so that she might be the more fully conformed to her Son, the Lord of lords and conqueror of sin and death.” The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin is a singular participation in her Son’s Resurrection and an anticipation of the resurrection of other Christians: In giving birth you kept your virginity; in your Dormition, you did not leave the world, O Mother of God, but were joined to the source of Life. You conceived the living God and, by your prayers, will deliver our souls from death,” (CCC 966).

These dogmas are not to be found in scripture anywhere.
Please pray for the Roman Catholic followers, that the Holy Spirit may come upon them!

Was It Mary That Crushes The Head Of The Serpent? Genesis 3:15

There are Roman Catholic scholars that have interpreted that it is Mary who crushes the serpent under her heel. Note the Douay-Rheims translation:

I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel.
Genesis 3:15 Douay-Rheims

Pope Pius 1x, Ineffabilis Deus Wrote:
Hence, just as Christ, the Mediator between God and man, assumed human nature, blotted handwriting of the decree that stood against us, and fastened it triumphantly to the cross, so the most holy Virgin, united with him by a most intimate and indissolvable bond, was, with him and through him, eternally at enmity with the evil serpent, and most completely triumphed over him, and thus crushed his head with her immaculate foot.

The issue with the RCC position is that the notion of Mary crushing the serpent’s head is contrived over an incorrect translation of Genesis 3:15! The scripture was from the Latin texts of the Vulgate. This has been the official Bible of the RCC since the fourth century.

The truth is that the Scripture was written in Hebrew and the subject is in the masculine and not the feminine. This verse is speaking prophetically of Jesus Christ our Savior’s victory over Satan. Nothing to do with Mary in the least.

The Hebrew scripture reads: “He shall bruise you on the head” Genesis 3:15 (NASB).

Please pray that the Roman Catholic follower turn to Christ and not the Magisterium.

Buddhists Repent!

This following came from the website: http://www.english.fgs2.ca/?q=why-buddhists-bow-pray-or-worship-buddha-statue-if-buddhism-does-not-believe-creationism

And the statement is:

“Why Buddhists bow, pray or worship the Buddha statue if Buddhism does not believe in creationism?”

“Buddhists do not bow nor pray to a statue but to the Dharma that the figure represents. Dharma is the law of nature, and Buddhism is a way of life. What the Buddha taught is not just the law of nature but how we live by it. As a matter of fact, one of the principles in a discourse by the Buddha called the Three Reliances states that a Buddhist practitioner should rely on the Dharma and not on a person. The term “worship” is seldom used if not at all in Buddhism because it may cause confusion with its general meaning by other faiths such as Christianity. Worship is a total submission to a master, or a creator and Buddha is not our master nor a creator. He just our supreme and most respectable teacher, one who is fully enlightened. When we pray, we are praying to the Dharma, represented and taught by the Buddha.

Interesting huh?

Buddhists according to this website do NOT BOW OR PRAY to a statue….well google “Buddhists praying/worshiping and you will see many images of the Buddhist bowing to statues!The above article reads; “Buddhists do not bow nor pray to a statue but to the Dharma that the figure represents. However, they are still worshipping what it “represents”! What a spin! Of course, they will not USE the word worship…but be honest, if you bow to a statue you are worshiping it? Just like the Roman Catholics do with the statues of Mary and the Saints!

Please pray for the Buddhist to see the light of Jesus and not a dead Buddha! Jesus is still alive and will judge us all!

Please help the Buddhist graciously and present them with the Gospel of a live Jesus. Not a dead Buddha!

1 Corinthian 12: 2

2 You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols.

Jesus is The Way the TRUTH and the Life!

Conception And Birth Of Jesus Our Savior

Merry Christmas to all! Today we celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ!

Conception and Birth of Jesus

Matthew 1: 18-25 (NASB)

18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: when His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit. 19 And Joseph, her husband, being a righteous man and not wanting to disgrace her, planned to send her away secretly. 20 But when he had considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21 She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” 22 Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet: 23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which translated means, “God with us.” 24 And Joseph awoke from his sleep and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took Mary as his wife, 25 but kept her a virgin until she gave birth to a Son; and he called His name Jesus.

Pray For The Roman Catholic Followers

I have always wondered as to why a lot of the atheists I have conversed with were once Roman Catholics? I don’t know if anyone else that reads this post has had the same observation, my guess would be yes. I would like to do a study on that connection.

Maybe it is because … they believe (or are told) that Baptism is necessary for salvation (CCC 1257), or maybe it is “Basing itself on Scripture and Tradition, the Council teaches that the Church, a pilgrim now on earth, is necessary for salvation,” (CCC 846), or “The Church affirms that for believers the sacraments of the New Covenant are necessary for salvation, (CCC 1129)?

The list goes on and on…!

I ask too that if a Catholic needs to go to confession, they must not be living rightly by the law. Is this a good example that the RC cannot live by the accordance of the Law? In fact, after confession the priest will then give them some things to DO….more works!

If you are a Catholic can you fulfill the requirements for that your church says you need for salvation? You know you can’t! Have you done enough to be saved?

Here is the depth charge: Romans 3: 27-30 (NASB)

27 Where then is boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? Of works? No, but by a law of faith. 28 For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law. 29 Or is God the God of Jews only? Is He not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also, 30 since indeed God who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith is one.

As an escapee from that heresy called the Roman Catholic Church, I again ask for prayers for enlightenment and revelation for the Roman Catholic (Pope) follower.

God Bless

Terminology Tuesday: Immaculate Conception

* The Roman Catholic teaching that Mary the mother of Jesus was supernaturally prevented from being tainted by original sin so that she could give birth to Jesus as God’s own Son. The teaching was first suggested by the theologian Duns Scotus in the thirteenth century and declared to official Roman Catholic Dogma (authoritative teaching) by Pope Pius IX in 1854

*Stanley J. Grenz, David Guretzki & Cherith Fee Nordling, Pocket Dictionary of Theological Terms (Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 1999), p. 63

Mary was a sinful person just as we all are! Nowhere in the Bible does it say anything about her remaining sinless.

God Bless
