...the "rock" Christ's church is built upon is Peter's BELIEF in what the Father revealed to him about WHO Christ was...
Thirdly, there can be no reconciling the "works" of the Catholic church in the sacraments with the words of Christ in John 3:3 and 3:5
Call it anti-Catholic if you want....but....how many Catholics can get around Jeremiah's rebuke FROM the Lord in Chapter 44?
15 Then all the men which knew that their wives had burned incense unto other gods, and all the women that stood by, a great multitude, even all the people that dwelt in the land of Egypt, in Pathros, answered Jeremiah, saying,
16 As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the LORD, we will not hearken unto thee.
17 But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil. note note
18 But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine.
19 And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven, and poured out drink offerings unto her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings unto her, without our men? note
20 Then Jeremiah said unto all the people, to the men, and to the women, and to all the people which had given him that answer, saying,
21 The incense that ye burned in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, ye, and your fathers, your kings, and your princes, and the people of the land, did not the LORD remember them, and came it not into his mind?
22 So that the LORD could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings, and because of the abominations which ye have committed; therefore is your land a desolation, and an astonishment, and a curse, without an inhabitant, as at this day.
23 Because ye have burned incense, and because ye have sinned against the LORD, and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, nor walked in his law, nor in his statutes, nor in his testimonies; therefore this evil is happened unto you, as at this day.
These Babylonian rituals came from Nimrod....that YouTube video is accurate....Ephesians 2:8-9 settles the matter; no one can work their way to heaven....believe, then be baptized...in that order....how many ana-baptists were killed for opposing the Mother church?
You enter the Kingdom individually on His terms, not as a corporate body, nor because of good works outweighing bad works .... Every man must hear the whole counsel of God, otherwise, he is vulnerable to ravenous wolves and satan's counterfeit christ and church...there are souls at stake...I don't doubt the sincerity of many catholics, I just detest the system.
