Some of the "secrets" of Catholicism

This video is called, "To all Catholics; You deserve to know these "secrets"." Click here to get it.

This is the basic text from the video, because it's a little hard to read.

"...Take heed that no one deceive you." Matthew 24:4 See also: Galatians 1:6-9

The Roman Catholic Church teaches many doctrines that are in disagreement with what the Bible declares.

1) The Pope is the head of the church.

The Bible says, that Christ is the head of the church.

"For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body." Ephesians 5:23

2) Baptism is necessary for salvation in the Roman Catholic Church.

The Lord Himself affirms that baptism is not necessary for salvation neither can it save you.

"But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin." 1 John 1:7 See also: Romans 5:6-11, John 3:16, Romans 10:9-13, Ephesians 2:8-9

3) The Roman Catholic church says imagery is used to increase faith in the mystery of Christ.

"So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God." Romans 10: 17

“Take careful heed to yourselves, for you saw no form when the LORD spoke to you at Horeb out of the midst of the fire, lest you act corruptly and make for yourselves a carved image in the form of any figure: the likeness of male or female..." Deuteronomy 4:15-16

4) The Roman Catholic church says all sins must be confessed to a priest.

The Bible says, "I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD,” and You forgave the iniquity of my sin." Psalms 32:5

“Why does this Man speak blasphemies like this? Who can forgive sins but God alone?” Mark 2:7

5) The Roman Catholic Church believes that the virgin Mary is like Jesus and aids in our salvation.

The most crucial problem with the Roman Catholic Church is it's belief that faith alone in Christ is not sufficient for salvation.

"Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." John 14:6

Seek the truth for yourself.

"And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you."" Matthew 24:4

The Bible has an impact wherever it is proclaimed (Isaiah 55:11), but while Catholics claim Scriptural support for these concepts, none of these teachings have any solid foundation in the clear teaching of Scripture. These concepts are based on Catholic tradition, not the Word of God. In fact they all clearly contradict Biblical principles.

"I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed." Galatians 1:6-9
