    I am not Catholic…but I am a christian and I wanted to thank you for all this research and things that you have done. My sister is a christian and is in love with a GREAT guy…but he is Catholic…and each are stuck to their own beliefs…and they can’t move forward because of this. She will not marry him if he is Catholic. I am going to share your blog with her!!! My thanks!!!!! 🙂 Katy

  2. Kate says:

    (Act 4:12) Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

    The Bible says that there is salvation in NO other name UNDER heaven. The church does not bring salvation, only Jesus. Only God can bring salvation – not the church. ONCE a person is saved, THEN they become part of His church.

    (Jon 2:9b) Salvation is of the LORD.

  3. Kate says:

    How very sad, Sir, that you would put your trust in a “church” rather than in the God of Glory, the Lord Jesus Christ. It is He who does the saving – not your church. You are sadly deceived and I can only pray that the Holy Spirit would illuminate your heart and cause you to see the lies that you have been fed. Dogma, magisterium, sacred tradition are all man-made. Only Christ’s words will prevail. The Word of God is what cleanses us from sin, not the church. The Word is what draws a man to salvation.

    (Psa 119:9) BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

    (Psa 119:11) Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

    (Psa 119:25) DALETH. My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to thy word.

    (Psa 119:28 ) My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word.

    (Psa 119:38 ) Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear.

    (Psa 119:41) VAU. Let thy mercies come also unto me, O LORD, even thy salvation, according to thy word.

    (Psa 119:50) This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.

    (Psa 119:58 ) I intreated thy favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me according to thy word.

    (Psa 119:65) TETH. Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O LORD, according unto thy word.

    (Psa 119:89) LAMED. For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.

    (Psa 119:101) I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word.

    (Psa 119:105) NUN. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

    (Psa 119:107) I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according unto thy word.

    (Psa 119:133) Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.

    (Psa 119:140) Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.

    (Psa 119:154) Plead my cause, and deliver me: quicken me according to thy word.

    (Psa 119:160) Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.

    (Psa 119:172) My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy commandments are righteousness.

    (Psa 138:2) I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

  4. Ted Jankowski says:

    How very sad, Kate that you DO NOT understand: I would like to put “Ted’s” trust in the God of Glory, the Lord Jesus Christ in “HIS Church” in Beauty of HIS Word and and His liturgy
    35. This relationship between creed and worship is evidenced in a particular way by the rich theological and liturgical category of beauty. Like the rest of Christian Revelation, the liturgy is inherently linked to beauty: it is veritatis splendor. The liturgy is a radiant expression of the paschal mystery, in which Christ draws us to himself and calls us to communion. As Saint Bonaventure would say, in Jesus we contemplate beauty and splendour at their source. (106) This is no mere aestheticism, but the concrete way in which the truth of God’s love in Christ encounters us, attracts us and delights us, enabling us to emerge from ourselves and drawing us towards our true vocation, which is love. (107) God allows himself to be glimpsed first in creation, in the beauty and harmony of the cosmos (cf. Wis 13:5; Rom 1:19- 20). In the Old Testament we see many signs of the grandeur of God’s power as he manifests his glory in his wondrous deeds among the Chosen People (cf. Ex 14; 16:10; 24:12-18; Num 14:20- 23). In the New Testament this epiphany of beauty reaches definitive fulfilment in God’s revelation in Jesus Christ: (108) Christ is the full manifestation of the glory of God. In the glorification of the Son, the Father’s glory shines forth and is communicated (cf. Jn 1:14; 8:54; 12:28; 17:1). Yet this beauty is not simply a harmony of proportion and form; “the fairest of the sons of men” (Ps 45[44]:3) is also, mysteriously, the one “who had no form or comeliness that we should look at him, and no beauty that we should desire him” (Is 53:2). Jesus Christ shows us how the truth of love can transform even the dark mystery of death into the radiant light of the resurrection. Here the splendour of God’s glory surpasses all worldly beauty. The truest beauty is the love of God, who definitively revealed himself to us in the paschal mystery.
    The beauty of the liturgy is part of this mystery; it is a sublime expression of God’s glory and, in a certain sense, a glimpse of heaven on earth. The memorial of Jesus’ redemptive sacrifice contains something of that beauty which Peter, James and John beheld when the Master, making his way to Jerusalem, was transfigured before their eyes (cf. Mk 9:2). Beauty, then, is not mere decoration, but rather an essential element of the liturgical action, since it is an attribute of God himself and his revelation. These considerations should make us realize the care which is needed, if the liturgical action is to reflect its innate splendour. Benedict XVI

  5. Kate says:

    What??? Good night, Sir. Could you not make your comments understandable to the average person? Your rhetoric is confusing at best and mimics the vatican’s.

    The catholic gets lost in the language of a church that is so deeply buried in tradition that he no longer thinks for himself nor speaks for himself. Your comments reflect that thoroughly.

    God is not complicated. Your responses are so full of pomp and circumstance – another reflection of the catholic church. Simplicity is found within the pages of the Bible. There is nothing complicated about salvation – only one way to heaven and that is through Jesus Christ. Plain and simple.

    Christ is the Author and Finisher of our faith … NOT the catholic church.

  6. Stan says:

    I have enjoyed all your thoughts on the “unbiblical nature” of Catholicism. They are humorous to read. When I read these posts it reminds me how grateful I am that God delivered me from the confusion and chaos of Protestantism. I rejoice daily that God brought me and my family, including my Evangelical brother, into the “one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.”

  7. Kate says:

    I am thankful for your visit but saddened at your response. It would be to your benefit and that of your family’s to read the Word of God. Forget what I say – obey God rather than man like Peter said in the Bible.

  8. Alumbrados says:

    Have you read Keith Green’s Catholic Chronicles? Its worth a read for it exposes VERY CLEARLY the problems with the Catholic Church http://alumbrados.wordpress.com/alumbrados-the-illuminated/the-catholic-chronicles-of-keith-green/

  9. Kate says:

    I haven’t read that book. I will have to search it out. Thanks for the heads up!

  10. travancoreann says:

    Thumbs up for a good job well done. Came upon your blog while reseaching for the topics you have dealt with.

    Keep up the good work. Like it says, “You catch them, He’ll clean them”

    • Kate says:

      Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment! I appreciate it! I loved the quote! It says it all … we lead them to the Lord and He does the convicting. 🙂

  11. Felix says:

    why not concentrate on your own faith and leave others to practice what they believe in and stop confusing people and decieving them…Catholic has come to stay , the gate of hell shall not prevail

    • Kate says:

      Felix, thank you for visiting and posting. Sorry it took so long to respond to you. My blog has changed so I do not check this one very often. I speak out against catholicism, Felix, because it is a religion of works. I was a catholic and I know the burdens of guilt placed on me. The Bible says:

      ~Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
      ~Ephesians 2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

      If my works – keeping the commandments and all the catechism rules – were able to save me, then it is no longer faith. There is nothing I could do to earn my way to Heaven. If there was, then it was a cruel thing for God the Father to send His only Son to die for nothing.

  12. God Bless You, Kate, for the work you are doing to reach all the human hearts that are, by their very nature, seeking God, and seeking to please God.
    Please remind your readers, once they have found their faith, they should study, deeply, the Book of James.
    As the younger brother of Jesus, James spent more years with the Christ than any other Apostle, and fully understood the message Jesus brought to us.
    Faith buys our ticket to paradise, grace changes our heart to want to do God’s will, and our daily works in caring for all of God’s wondrous Creation, which He loves, is obediance to His Commandments, pleasing to His eyes, fulfilling to our servant hearts, and witnesses the change He has made in our hearts to all the World.
    The witness of our works brings more cheerful servants to the faith, and God’s Grace.
    Again, God Bless Your Work!
