Catholic Church has Some Explaining to Do
Christianity has caught a real bad rap because of the Catholic church. We shouldn’t base our views on the bible on the actions of the Catholic Church. Sadly many people do associate the teachings of the scripture with the Catholic Church.
Is the Catholic Church really a bible based religion now? If it’s not, can we base our views of YHWH, and Yahushua on it? Let’s take a look and see weather or not the Catholic church is based on the bible…..
Exodus 28:41 – “You shall put them on Aaron your brother and on his sons with him; and you shall anoint them and ordain them and consecrate them, that they may serve Me as priests.”
It seems that scripture suggests that one must be a Levite, and a son of Aaron to be a priest. The first flaw I see in the Catholic Church is the fact that they have priests. Do these men claim to be descended from Aaron? No, they do not. So why do they call themselves priests then? Under what authority do they get the privilege to be supposed priests of YHWH?
Deuteronomy 4:16 – “so that you do not act corruptly and make a graven image for yourselves in the form of any figure, the likeness of male or female”
Mosaic law is clear concerning making images of deities, even YHWH. What human hand could even capture the glory of YHWH in a painting or statue? Solomon’s Temple only had images of angels, palm trees, and pomegranates. Why does the Catholic Church violate the rule against making images of the Creator?
Numbers 6:17 – “So they shall invoke My name (YHWH) on the sons of Israel, and I then will bless them.”
Psalms 86:12 – “I will give thanks to You, O YHWH my Elohim, with all my heart, And will glorify Your Name forever.”
Here is what the Catholic Church says about using His Name…
“Bishop Arthur J. Serratelli of Paterson, N.J., chairman of the U.S. bishops’ Committee on Divine Worship, announced the new Vatican “directives on the use of ‘the name of God’ in the sacred liturgy” in an Aug. 8 letter to his fellow bishops.” “Avoiding pronouncing the Tetragrammaton of the name of God on the part of the church has therefore its own grounds,” the letter said. “Apart from a motive of a purely philological order, there is also that of remaining faithful to the church’s tradition, from the beginning, that the sacred Tetragrammaton was never pronounced in the Christian context nor translated into any of the languages into which the Bible was translated.”
These decrees go against what scripture teaches.. consider Exodus 3:15, Exodus 9:16, Exodus 33:19, Leviticus 19:12, Numbers 6:17, 1 Kings 5:5, Psalms 86:12, Psalms 91:14, Psalms 103:1, Isaiah 42:8, Isaiah 52:6, Jeremiah 12:16, Jeremiah 15:16, Jeremiah 16:21, Jeremiah 23:27, Ezekiel 39:7, Zechariah 13:9, Matthew 24:9 , John 10:25, John 16:24, and Acts 4:12…
This is all just the very tip of the iceberg. We could go on for days with subjects like pagan holidays being incorporated into the Catholic Church, or the great wealth of the Vatican that could feed many starving Catholics.
The scripture warns about hoarding wealth. I would like for people to know that the RCC is not a bible based religion, and you shouldn’t base your ideas of Elohim, and the scripture on this establishment.
