Many Protestant churches don't have paid ministers unless the members agree to pay him and most don't have 'priests' at all.
I don't believe you need to 'confess' your sins to a man, who has titled himself as 'priest'.
The Bible says that when Jesus dies on the cross, we could confess our sins directly to God in prayer thru Jesus' name...
and we didn't need any Priest's anymore.
The Romans were in power when Jesus was put to death, they took the scriptures away from people, many were killed for reading scripture, so the true Christians and Jews HID THE SCRIPTURES FROM THE ROMANS.
Now, there is 'again' the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH (a ROMAN political state revived)trying to control people and their worship of the true God and Jesus...once again.
THEY use priests,(against the Bible) THEY only read what scriptures they want you to hear,(against the Bible) even some of their priests are not allowed to study scripture.(against the Bible)they elect a man and name him pope who calls himself god, and claims to forgive sin(in the Bible it says the anti-Christ will do the same and deceive the world into loving him and believing him)
There is something very evil in the Catholic Church...very evil indeed.
Mind you, most protestant churches are not like this and they point out the MAJOR flaws of the RCC.
how many protestant churches do you know of that have ministers working for free?

just because your sect differs from the catholics doesn't mean the god you worship isn't a proven myth, it came from the same proven false myths...

the church doesn't need money even though they all actually do.

We also calculate our time in years (BC and AD) from before the Messiah came to earth and after He was born.
Yes BC means before Christ.
AD is Latin for the year of our Lord.

As for 1day = 1000 years that is not for Geneses.

Protestant Church members are also ministers of God's Word....didn't you know that? Once you become a child of God, you also become a minister to His Word. 99.9% of the Protestant churches ministers work for FREE.

but not in the RCC...they want to re-write the Bible to their liking and only read to the congregation what they think is relevant...

they're pre-occupied with money, power, secrecy, politics, and all of the things that is not supposed to be in a real Church of God...

No, seriously they don't. Please, when you make a claim like "99.9% of protestant church ministers work for FREE" you have to substantiate it with some sort of link or we will point out that you are breaking the Ninth Commandment.

Have you ever heard of 'spiritual warfare"?

or that satan is the 'prince of this world', who is cunning, scheming and smart enough to deceive this world?

Satan began his work against God's Word from the very beginning. He deceived the people who named the days of the week into worshipping false god's, planets, stars, the sun, the moon and statues.

There are still many people who worship these false god's (secretly) but they only do it to receive powers from the evil one. These powers will not satisfy and will end someday, and they will regret ever following satan.

Oh yeah, that reminds me, RCC worships statues of 'men'(saints they named) and 'women'(mary). They have also tried to replace Jesus (God in the flesh) with Mary (a mere human)....

this is also spelled out and prophesied in the Bible that will happen..and

today it's happening right before your eyes and you still can't seem to grasp it.

imagine, you can't just make all of these false claims without somebody calling bullshit on you.

Where does it prophesize that the Catholic Church would try to replace Jesus with Mary. I don't think they have. They do offer her special reverence since she was supposed to be Jesus' mother. But they did not make her a god.

Are you listening to those idiots from the SDA again?

Did the apostles get paid to teach the next generation of teachers?

NO, the did not.

The same is today, the majority of Bible teachers are, in fact, just members, who teach for free.

The Great Commission
Matthew 28
18And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, All power is given to me in heaven and in earth. 19Go you therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20Teaching them to observe all things whatever I have commanded you: and, see, I am with you always, even to the end of the world. Amen.

Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
----------
Acts 2:38 Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
----------
Acts 8:16 because the Holy Spirit had not yet come on any of them; they had simply been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
----------
Acts 14:21 They preached the gospel in that city and won a large number of disciples. Then they returned to Lystra, Iconium and Antioch,
----------
Romans 6:3 Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?

http://babylonmysteryreligion.com/The%20Wine%...

RCC says they forgive sins (WRONG) by telling people to say "HAIL MARY" many times over (blasphemy)

Didn't Hitler have the masses say "Hail Hitler" to him also?

hmmm.....

don't the RCC pray to man-made statues that they, themselves have named as 'saint' this or that?(idol worship)

A woman rides the beast, and that woman is a city built on seven hills that reigns over the kings of the earth! Was ever in all of history such a statement made? John immediately equates the readers' acceptance of this revelation with "wisdom." We dare not pass over such a disclosure casually. It merits our careful and prayerful attention.

Here is no mystical or allegorical language but an unambiguous statement in plain words: "The woman ... is that great city." There is no justification for seeking some other hidden meaning. Yet books have been written and sermons preached insisting that "Mystery Babylon" is the United States. That is clearly not the case, for the United States is a country, not a city. One might justifiably refer to the United States as Sodom, considering the honor now given to homosexuals, but it is definitely not the Babylon that John sees in this vision. The woman is a city.

Furthermore, she is a city built on seven hills. That specification eliminates ancient Babylon. Only one city has for more than 2000 years been known as the city on seven hills. That city is Rome. The Catholic Encyclopedia states: "It is within the city of Rome, called the city of seven hills, that the entire area of Vatican State proper is now confined."1

There are, of course, other cities, such as Rio de Janeiro, that were also built on seven hills. Therefore, John provides at least seven more characteristics to limit the identification to Rome alone. We will examine each one in detail in subsequent chapters. However, as a preview of where we are going, we will list them now and discuss each one briefly. As we shall see, there is only one city on the earth which, in both historical and contemporary perspectives, passes every test John gives, including its identification as Mystery Babylon. That city is Rome, and more specifically, Vatican City.

Even Catholic apologist Karl Keating admits that Rome has long been known as Babylon. Keating claims that Peter's statement "The church here in Babylon ... sends you her greeting" (from I Peter 5:13) proves that Peter was writing from Rome. He explains further:

"Babylon is a code word for Rome. It is used that way six times in the last book of the Bible [four of the six are in chapters 17 and 18 and in extrabiblical works such as Sibylling Oracles (5, 159f.), the Apocalypse of Baruch (ii, 1), and 4 Esdras (3:1).
Eusebius Pamphilius, writing about 303, noted that "it is said that Peter's first epistle... was composed at Rome itself; and that he himself indicates this, referring to the city figuratively as Babylon."2

As for "Mystery," that name imprinted on the woman's forehead is the perfect designation for Vatican City. Mystery is at the very heart of Roman Catholicism, from the words "Mysterium fide" pronounced at the alleged transformation of the bread and wine into the literal body and blood of Christ to the enigmatic apparitions of Mary around the world. Every sacrament, from baptism to extreme unction, manifests the mysterious power which the faithful must believe the priests wield, but for which there is no visible evidence. Rome's new Catechism explains that liturgy "aims to initiate souls into the mystery of Christ (It is 'mystagogy.')" and that all of the Church's liturgy is "mystery."3

Satan has deceived the whole world, through his false messiah, Jesus. They believe his lie in the garden of Eden, "You can sin against God and not keep his commandments, and you won't die". Ezekiel 13:22 "...and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life". Christians believe the wicked go to heaven as long as they believe in Jesus. Their god is "kind to the unthankful and to the evil"

Each "day" of creation was 6000 years. Genesis 2:4 "These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth..." Right now, it is approximately the year 6018, the end of the seventh day. The Messiah will shortly come and we will start a new "week".
