(Part 1) Mary: A goddess In Disguise

This is a copy and paste from the Catholic Catechism. This post is not a personal attack on Catholics but to expose their false doctrine which is leading people away from Jesus Christ.


PART ONE
THE PROFESSION OF FAITH

SECTION TWO
THE PROFESSION OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH

CHAPTER THREE
I BELIEVE IN THE HOLY SPIRIT

ARTICLE 9
“I BELIEVE IN THE HOLY CATHOLIC CHURCH”

Paragraph 6. Mary – Mother of Christ, Mother of the Church


maryqueenofheaven

966 “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.

I’m sorry but the Mary of the Bible was stained with original sin (Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God), (Luke 1:49-47 46 And Mary said: My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, 47 and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior,). Only Jesus Christ was free from all stain of original sin (1 John 3:5 You know that He was revealed so that He might take away sins, and there is no sin in Him.

The Catholic Church is trying to exalt a created creature of God to the same status of Jesus Christ the creator. Now they claim that Mary was taken up to heaven the same way Jesus was taken up to the Father but there is no evidence in scripture to support this outrageous claim (Acts 1:9-11 9 After He had said this, He was taken up as they were watching, and a cloud took Him out of their sight. 10 While He was going, they were gazing into heaven, and suddenly two men in white clothes stood by them. 11 They said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking up into heaven? This Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come in the same way that you have seen Him going into heaven.”) I’m sorry but Mary does not have the same qualities as our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who is the creator of heaven and earth.

Mary was not and is not exalted by the Lord as Queen of heaven. Jesus Christ was and is exalted at the right hand of God the Father (Mark 16:19 Then after speaking to them, the Lord Jesus was taken up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God.) The title “Queen of Heaven” (pagan goddess) is actually a demonic title as seen in Jeremiah 7:18 which says, “The sons gather wood, the fathers light the fire, and the women knead dough to make cakes for the queen of heaven, and they pour out drink offerings to other gods so that they provoke Me to anger.” The Lord has nothing to do with demonic titles.

The doctrine of the Catholic Church has replaced Jesus Christ as the only true God to be worshiped for Mary, as their new god. The Catholic Church is paganism repackaged with Christian terminology.

NIrV Kids Devotional Bible, Hardcover Review:


The hardcover is sturdy and the binding is smyth sewn. It has Monday through Friday devotionals for kids and as well as weekends with over 300 devotionals. The devotionals are very simple to understand and easy for a child to comprehend the lessen. Each devotional comes with pictures that can be colored by kids should they choose to.

The fonts seems to be a 9 point, very easy on the eyes. This is not a Red letter edition since the words of Christ are in black. The NIrV is a very easy translation to read especially for kids. This Bible will last you for a very long time, its construction is built to last a kid’s occasional carelessness and mishandling (wrath lol). Dimensions are 8.75 X 5.50 X 1.75 (inches).

I’m reading it with my daughter and she’s learning the application of the text with the devotionals. She loves to see the pictures and she told me that the size of the fonts is easy for her to read. Each Book of the Bible has a quick introduction with great pictures engaging for the kids. The back of the Bible has a dictionary and a subject guide that will help you find devotionals about certain topics. It has no maps. Overall this is a wonderful Bible for children to read and learn a great deal through the devotionals and study help on their own which is found throughout the Bible.

I received a complimentary copy of this Bible for an honest review from BookLookBloggers.com

What God Feels About Cross-Dressing

Deuteronomy 22:5

5 “A woman is not to wear male clothing, and a man is not to put on a woman’s garment, for everyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord your God.


Imagine you’re in trouble and you call the cops and the janitor happens to be the one that comes. He starts to change out of his janitor’s uniform in front of you and puts on the officer’s uniform instead and tries to assist you. Changing clothes does not change who you are.

When a man or a woman dresses in the opposite gender, they are pretending to be someone they are not. They are in full rebellion against God’s order. Looking like the opposite gender is not going to transform you into that, as much as a monkey dressing like a human is going to make it one, logically speaking.

cross-dressing

A person who is walking around as a cross-dresser is a walking lie. Lying to the eyes that behold them. 

If God made you to look like a man or woman, why do you want to look like the opposite? What God creates is good but Satan wants to undo God’s goodness through His creation. If God created you as a man or woman, He created something good. Why try to undo what’s good from God to something that’s an abomination to the Lord?

Just because you feel better in women’s clothing doesn’t make it right. If stealing made you feel good would you steal? You know full well that stealing is wrong so because one feels good in doing something that’s morally wrong doesn’t justify the fact. Feelings do not determine what’s right but God alone determines what’s good.

Seek the Lord Jesus Christ today, while there’s time. Repent and put your faith in Jesus Christ and He will forgive all of your sins. Jesus died in your place and took your punishment upon Himself so that you may have the opportunity of eternal life in Jesus. No sin is too great for Jesus to forgive just ask Him and He will forgive you.   

Friends Show Love Through Wounds But The Enemy Through Excessive Kisses

The wounds of a friend are trustworthy, but the kisses of an enemy are excessive.

Proverbs 27:6


proverbs-27-6

It hurts to be corrected. Who likes it? If we see a friend doing something that’s harmful or going somewhere that’s dangerous, only a friend will warn him. When I’m driving with my family and my wife tells me that it’s better if you go this way, even though I know in my heart that she has a point but I don’t like the fact that she corrected me even though I’m the driver in the family and think that I know more than her. I lose sight of her intent to help me.

Who does the correcting? Those who care and love you. The enemy, knowing full well of your error is happy to cheer you on that you may continue to your own detriment. I am thankful to all of my brothers in Christ whom I know personally who instructed me that I was headed the wrong way. It takes maturity to humble oneself and take it.

I remember one day a Christian friend of mine named Julio called me up and told me that while being in church the pastor preached that if you have a friend who is Christian and is doing something contrary to the word, boldly tell and confront them. I can’t disclose the details here, it is personal in nature but I dwelt on what he said and I took it that it was a conviction from the Lord and I ended up fixing it.

My friend chose to call me up to warn me because he loves me as a brother but imagine a friend who is devoid of the Holy Spirit. He would actually cheer you on to continue. The enemy will NEVER correct you but will be happy to see you go in the wrong direction hence plenty of kisses and telling you what you want to hear, fattening you up for the slaughter.

Beware my brothers and sisters of the enemy’s kisses because in his eyes you’re never wrong as long as you’re doing his bidding.


Proverbs 28:23

One who rebukes a person will later find more favor than one who flatters with his tongue.

Proverbs 27:5

Better an open reprimand than concealed love.

Proverbs 29:5

A man who flatters his neighbor spreads a net for his feet.

When one is in the wrong but all his friends tells him how right he is, they are digging a pit for his down fall.

A Watchman’s Duty

Ephesians 5:11

11 Don’t participate in the fruitless works of darkness, but instead expose them.

Disclaimer: The last thing I want to be is divisive. We are admonished to expose the deeds of darkness but not to be partakers. Love for the Truth and the brethren compels me to warn. I see the lack of caution in forwarding unreliable articles occuring frequently and therefore has to be addressed. That is the watchman’s duty.


truth-or-lies

3 John 1:11

11 Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. The one who does good is of God; the one who does evil has not seen God.

The Greek word for imitate is mimeomai (mim-eh’-om-ahee) which means to follow, mimic.

The Greek word for evil is kakos which means bad, evil, in the widest sense. (morally i.e) evil i.e. what is contrary to law, either divine or human, wrong, crime

Christians should be careful on what they imitate or follow but discern to see if it agrees with scripture so as not to promote false doctrine.

Doctrine is the message of the good news that was brought forth by Jesus Christ and God’s character, laws, statutes, ordinances, historical facts, essential theological truths revealed in the whole Bible. Any contradiction would be considered false.

I continue to come across professing believers in the blogosphere who are reblogging posts, quotes and anything in between that are from men who either believe in works-based salvation or those who bring confusion to basic terms that Christians in essence are to do, i.e. Convert vs. Disciple. These terms are interchangeable and synonymous, one cannot be a disciple without first being converted and to make a distinction between the two would make it nonsense. To be a disciple and live according to His commands is first through faith in Jesus Christ and be converted (born again) which the Holy Spirit will enable you do God’s will after conversion as seen in Philippians 2:13 that says, 13 For it is God who is working in you, enabling you both to desire and to work out His good purpose.

If the believer immerses himself in God’s Word he will know what would please the Lord through the discernment received from the Holy Spirit who gives understanding of God’s truth in the message of Christ as seen in Philippians 1:9-11 which states, 9 And I pray this: that your love will keep on growing in knowledge and every kind of discernment, 10 so that you can approve the things that are superior and can be pure and blameless in the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ to the glory and praise of God.

Just because a quote or a post seems to be sound on the onset it is a ploy from Satan to introduce people to deception. Satan’s emissaries bait with a sound message on the surface to get the unsuspecting victim’s curiosity to click on the person who originated the quote to intake their false doctrine, thus caught in a snare. Satan twisted God’s Word to deceive Eve and tried but failed to make Jesus sin through false interpretation of the text.

Once you go to the originator of the quote either a dead person or one still alive it doesn’t matter for their message still lives, the deception begins unless it is a mature believer who will immediately disregard it, but for the immature Christian, it would liken unto quicksand and to get out will take much effort. Let’s not become a stumbling block to other Christians by being lazy in researching and vetting who we are reblogging or quoting because at the end, we will give an account to God for what we have done.
