IF IT IS NOT ….billions of people have been deceived.
IF IT IS NOT……then the ecumenical movement is not God.
IF IT IS NOT…… then Roman Catholics are heading for spiritual disaster.
At work I received a track (handout ) from Chick publications attacking the Catholic faith. This bothers me. We have to give to Jesus and the father God. Save the unsaved. Not attack each other. I wanted to discuss this as there is much misleading information out there and the net and on paper attacking our faith without facts!
First they attack the baptized of little babies and other who want to find God. ‘ ONE WHO IS BORN AGAIN ARE SUBJECT TO AND ONLY TO THE CATHOLIC CHURCH. ‘ This is false. To be baptized is to freed of sin and pure in the soul and heart. A little baby for example does not know sin and is given the baptized to receive a fresh start in life or removal of sins. For adults, One returned to the faith to make it official or clean the soul of sins and the Devil. Why new comers go for Baptized and speak to a priest at their last day to go with a clean soul.
‘ HELEN IS NOW A CITIZEN OF TWO COUNTRIES. HELEN HAS TWO FLAGS, TWO PRESIDENTS, TWO CONSTITUTIONS, AND TWO LOYALITES.’ False. For this writer, God is tops in my book. Yes I am a proud American, and good Catholic but I know that Jesus is the one and only one who will save us from sins. Up to the last day! Not a president of country, baseball team, flag will save your soul from sin! As the saying goes, ” You never see a U-Haul following a hearse. ‘
THE BOOK ALSO COMPARES THE HOLY COMMUNION TO SUN SHAPED WAFERS AND TO EGYPTIANS AND SUN GOD’S. Not true. First, there are no ‘Sun God’s. Why Moses lead his people out to the Promise Land . The bread and wine represent the respect to God who died on the cross for our sins. Seeking Holiness in Jesus who would rise on Easter Sunday and be seated at the right hand of the father. The garments worn by the priests, and Pope are in respect to Jesus and free of sin at the altar. Why a preist wear White under it. Pureness to Jesus and the Mass that day.
Finally, I write this as a lay person but want to bring the facts to light in regards to misleading infomation out there on our faith. What is your opinion? I know there are those who are well versed on this and I like to hear from you. I would also go to their web page www,chick.com/distrib.asp Phone number is – 1-909-987-0771 Tell them they are wrong! We have to defend why we are Catholics and God is the one and only one at the end!
