Lol,

It is the Catholic Church and the Protestant cults who are conquered by Satan!!! The Vatcian pope admitted the same when he declared that Christmas is a hoax!!! The Iglesia ni Cristo is correct in declaring Christmas as a pagan celebration a long time ago and during Her early inception!!!

Catholics and Protestants did not listen!!! But they are now harvesting the shame that they alone are to blame!!!

Bible Verse That Says God Is Love

1 John 4:7-8 ESV Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.(8) Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.

Lol,

This is the conquered of Satan:

"We Catholics acknowledge readily, without any shame, nay with pride, that Catholicism cannot be identified simply and wholly with primitive Christianity, nor even with the Gospel of Christ, in the same way that the great oak cannot be identified with the tiny acorn."

Reference:(Adam, Karl. The Spirit Of Catholicism, p.2. Revised Edition. Translated by Dom Justin McCann, O.S.B. Nihil Obstat: Arthur J. Scanlan, S.T.D., Censor Librorum. Imprimatur: Patrick cardinal hayes, Archbishop of New York. New York, USA: Image Books, 1954)

After the death of the Apostles, there would emerge from within the ranks of the brethren men who would speak or teach perverse things with the intention of drawing disciples after them. Such men would introduce into the Church doctrines of the enemy of Christ to lure the members into turning away from the true faith. These teachings that would later find their way into the doctrinal sysstem of the Church only proved that this work of apostasy was that of Christ's enemy. Apostle Paul forewarned about this, thus:

"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; ...

Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth." (1 Tim 4:1, 3, King James Version)

We can easily identify the fulfillment of this foreboding. The ones who follow such doctrines of Christ's enemy are the ones who departed from the faith and had apostatized. They are what were referred to in the parable of the weeds as the tares which the enemy sowed among the wheat while men slept.

Which church teaches and adheres to these doctrines forewarned about by the Apostle Paul? The book, Faith of Our Fathers, informs us that "The discipline of the Church," referring to the Catholic Church, has been exerted from the beginning in prohibiting Priests to marry after their ordination."

Reference:Reference: Gibbons, James Cardinal. The Faith of Our Fathers. New York, USA: P.J. Kenedy & Sons, n.d. p. 328.

It is the Catholic Church which is the conquered of Satan!!! The spurious religion teaches the doctrines of Satan!!!

Oral Roberts,

The Bible makes it clear that the soul dies. Not only does it die, but it also goes to the grave together with the body:
"For our soul is bowed down to the dust; our body clings to the ground." (Ps. 44:25, Ibid.)
So, when a person dies, both body and soul go to the grave and stay there not just for a short period of time. In other words, not just for three days, as some supertitiously believe. When a person dies, he will stay in the grave until Judgment Day:
"But man dies and is laid away; indeed he breathes his last and where is he? So man lies down and does not rise. Till the heavens are no more, they will not awake nor be roused from their sleep." (JOb. 14:10, 12, Ibid.)
Notice the question, "...and where is he?" The answer that we seek is right in the passage: "...man lies down and does not rise. Till the heavens are no more." The Scriptures clarifies the time when the heavens are no more or when the "heavens shall pass away":
"But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. But the heavens and the earth which now exist are kept in store by the same word, reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men." (II Pt. 3:10, 7, Ibid.)
The time when the dead will come out of the grave or be resurrected is on Judgment Day. This is not only biblical but also logical. Imagine for a moment, for the sake of argument, if it were true that all the dead are in heaven, hell, or somewhere else--then why would there still be a need for Judgment Day? All the dead would have already been judged and gone to their destination. But since all the dead are in the grave after they die, there is still a need for Judgment day. Then and only then will the dead come out of the grave. This was taught by Christ Himself:
"Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth--those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation." (Jn. 5:28-29, Ibid.)
Christ, referring to the dead or those in the grave, said, "the hour is coming ," which tells us that this is not in the present but rather in the future. Judgment day is what Christ is reerring to here when the dead will come from the grave--not from heaven, not from hell, not from an alleged purgatory, but from the grave.
Thus, the Bible clearly teaches that when a person dies, he will go to the grave and remain there until Judgment Day. Let us not be deceived by those who would say or teach that our loved ones are somewhere else besides the grave or the place where they have been burried.
The aforementioned verses of the Bible should make us realize that the two basic beliefs of the Catholic Church regarding purgatory and their so-called saints are unbiblical. By Catholic definition, a saint is someone who had died and is in heaven and can mediate or intercede in behalf of the living. What we would like to point out is that the belief that there people who had died and who are now in heaven, aside form our Lord Jesus Christ, is unbiblical. Remember that all the dead, whether good or evil, are in the grave and will remain there until Judgment Day except for our Lord Jesus. In like manner, not only is purgatory not mentiond in the BIble, but even the belief that there are dead people in a so-called middle state being "purged" from their sins goes against biblical teachings.

Lol,

No problem with the verses!!! The problem lies in the false Gods of Catholics and Protestants which is the Holy Trinity!!! Loving the false Holy Trinity does not equate to loving the true God!!! You cannot love the true God unless you do away with the fabrications made in the Councils of Nicaea and Constantinople!!!

The belief in God having three divine persons--God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit--is widely accepted. Many people adhere to this teaching as if it were the correct understanding about God. But is it really?

The Lord Jesus Christ said that the belief that the Father is the only true God is one requirement for one to attend eternal life:

"Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said:'Father,... And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent'." (John !7:1,3. New King James Version)

Aside from this, one also needs to possess the right understanding concerning the Lord Jesus Christ. This understanding gives us the proper understanding of who the true God is. According to the Bible:

"Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son Of God, God abides in Him, and he in God." (l John 4:15, Ibid.)

Christ is the Son of God. This is not equivalent to saying that He is "God the Son." To believe in the truth that Christ is the Son of God is a great blessing because such a believer abides in God and God abides in him. Hence, it is of vital importance that the Father alone is the true God while Jesus Christ is the Son of God, whom the Father had sent. This belief is the right understanding that will lead man to eternal life.

It is also important to have the right understanding concerning the Holy Spirit. According to our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit dwells among those who know Him (John 14:17).

The Holy Scriptures which contains the holy words of God, gives us the right understanding concerning God, the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.

Post 2...to be continued

The one true God

The Bible makes it clear that even during the time of the prophets, God's people upheld the teaching that the Father who created all things is the only true God:

"Have we not all one Father? Did not one God create us?" (Mal. 2:10, New Internatinal Version)

This teaching has not changed in the Chritian era. The members of the first-century Church of Christ preserved the scriptural teaching that the Father alone is the only true God. Apostle Paul testifies:

"Yet there is for us only one God, the Ftaher,, who is the Creator of all things and for whom we live." (l Cor. 8:6, Today's English Version)

Hence, the apostolic teaching is that the Father is the only true God. On the other hand, the belief in God having three divine persons--God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit--is unbiblical.

Jesus Christ: God's dear Son

As stated earlier, Christ is the Son of God and not "God the Son." Therefore, He is not God. Whom then did Christ recognize and introduce as His God? He Himself said:

" ... Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet returned to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them,'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God'." (John 20:17, NIV

The Lord Jesus Christ deified the Father as His God. His teaching that the Father is the one and only true God is also the truth that the apostles preached:

"Praise be to God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ."

Those who uphold this biblical teaching concerning the Father will not be lead away from the truth, they will not fall into the error that there are other gods besides the Father.

The Bible introduces the Lord Jesus Christ as God's dear Son:ature in both God and Man

"While He was talking, a shining cloud came over them, and a voice from the cloud said,'This is my own dear Son, with whom I am pleased--listen to him!'" (Mt. 17:5, TEV)

God Himself declared that Christ is His Son. This truth proves that Christ is not God. He is God's Son and not "God the Son."

The truth that Christ will be subject to the Father is another proof that He is not God:

"For he 'has put everything under his feet'. Now when it says that 'everything' has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put everything under Christ. When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all." (l Cor. 15:27-28, NIV)

All shall be subject to Christ, except God who put everything under Christ. And when this is accomplished, Christ Himself will be made subject to God so that God may be all in all. How then could Christ be God when He will be made subject to God?

Why must Christ subject Himself to the Father? Precisely because He admits , "My Father is greater than I" (John 14:28, NKJV). He also said:

" ... Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; ... I can of Myself do nothing." (John 5:19, 30, Ibid.)

Christ stated that He could not do anything by Himself. He did not introduce Himself as God, neither as "God the Son" but as being sent by God.

Post 3...End

The Holy Spirit: sent by God and by Christ

The Holy Spirit, too, cannot be God because it is being sent by the Father and the Son (John 14:26; 15:26). The Holy Spirit does not speak on his own authority (John 16:13) but according to the commandment of the Father or the Son who sent him.

The one who sends is greater than he who is sent (John 13:16, King James Version). Therefore, the Holy Spirit is not and could not be God. Furthermore, Revelation 5:6 says that seven spirits are sent by God. If the Holy Spirit were also God, it would then appear that there is more than one God. This is against biblical teaching.
We have proven that the Bible does not introduce Christ or the Holy Spirit as God. How then did the teaching that Christ and the Holy Spirit are God develop? Such teaching was defined at the Catholic Council of Nicea and Constantinople, respectively:

"Thus, for example, it was not until 325 A.D., at the Council of Nicea, that the Church defined for us that is was an article of faith that Jesus is truly God. In 381, at the Council of Constantinople, it was defined for us that it was an article of faith that the Holy Ghost is God." (Discourses on the Apostles' Creed, p. 206)

Let us adhere to the truth written in the Bible, for only the truth or the right understanding concerning the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit will asure us of eternal life.

End.

Lol,

The verse is again correct!!! So, the Catholic Inquisitions administered by the Vatican were wrong:

John A. O'Brien, a Jesuit priest reveals:

"'The first law of history', declared Pope Leo Xlll, as we mentioned previously,'is to assert nothing false and to have no fear of telling the truth'. In conformity with that wise principle, we frankly acknowledge the responsibility of the popes in the use of torture and in the burning of thousands of heretics at the stake. Their sanctioning of such cruel and brutal measures is unquestionably one of the blackest strains on the record of the Holy Office and will remain to the end of time a cause of obloquy and shame upon the papacy." (p. 49)

Reference:(O'Brien, John A., Ph.D., L.L.D., The Truth About the Inquisition. Nihil Obstat: Thomas E. Dillon, Censor Librorum. Imprimatur: John F. Noll, D.D., Bishop of Fort Wayne. New York, USA: The Paulist Press)

The crimes of the Vatican were and are enormous!!! All Catholics and Protestants must improve their low I.Q.!!!

Jude says: I will remind you again, even though you once knew this, how the Lord, having saved the Israelite people out of the land of Egypt, He then afterward destroyed those who didnít believe (in the Great Flood). And the angels who didnít keep their original place with God,(Genesis 6:1-5) but left their own habitation, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness until the great day of judgment (The Book of Enoch, Chapter 6 and 7).

Elias, just improve your low IQ as attacking the Catholics and Protestants will not save your sould

The Gospel or the words of God are being spread by the Iglesia ni Cristo in 110 countries and territories!!! We also spread the fact that purgatory is a Catholic fabrication and is not found in the Bible!!!

Catholicism has been criticized particularly for its stand on purgatory. History attests that the rampant abuse in the selling and buying of indulgences impelled the posting of the famous 95 Theses on the door of the Wittenberg Cathedral in 1517.
By such initiative, Martin Luther was said to have "set in motion the forces that were to break up the universal [Catholic] church into warring sects" (A Story of European Civilization, p. 372), thus triggering the dawn of Protestant revolution.
Since then, purgatory has always been in the target list of Catholic detractors who have taken it upon themselves to assail its unbiblical doctrines. In his book, I Was A Priest, former priest Lucien Vinet discloses:

"Purgatory, like Mass, has no foundation in Holy Scripture. Christ and the first Christians never talked about it and never knew of its supposed existence." (p. 44)

Even practicing priests confirm the lack of scriptural proof to support the belief. Purgatory is one of the "colossal racket" of the Roman Catholic Church!!!

There is only one God!!! But the Catholic Church added two more in the Councils of Nicaea and Constantinople:

"Thus, for example, it was not until 325 A.D., at the Council of Nicaea, that the [Catholic} Church defined for us that it was an article of faith that Jesus is truly God."
Reference:(Discourses on the Apostles' Creed, p. 206)

As to how the doctrine that the Holy Spirit is God came about, Catholic author , the Rev. Clement H. Crock, provides this information:

"In 381, at the Council of Constantinople, it was defined that it is an article of faith that the Holy Ghost is God."

Reference:(Crock, Clement H. Discourses on the Apostles' Creed, p. 206. Nihil Obstat: Arthur J. Scanlan, STD. Imprimatur: Patrick Cardinal Hayes. New York: John F. Wagner, Inc., 1938)

The "dagdag-bawas" operation of the Catholic Church had not ended after that!!! A fourth God was introduced and thus eliminating the Holy Trinity and harboring the Holy Quadruplets in the process!!!
Do Catholic mentors include God among those under the sovereignity of the "humble Mary"?

"Mary, being altogether transformed into God by grace and by the glory which transforms all the saints into Him ... that in heaven and on earth everything, even God Himself, is subject to the Blssed Virgin,... "
Reference: De Montfort, St. Louis Grignion, True Devotion To The Blessed Virgin Mary, p. 17. New York: The Montfort Fathers, 1941.)

"The saints have said many beautiful things about Mary ... They knew that there were no limits to her power, because she has power over God Himself."
(Reference: De Montfort, St. Louis Grignion, True Devotion To Mary, p. 3. Montfort Publications, 1956.)
"St. Bernardine of Siena declares that all obey Mary's commands, even God..."
(Reference: Alberione, J. Glories and Virtues of Mary, p. 177. Philippines: St. Paul Publications, 1960.)

By a mere stroke of his pen, Louis De Montfort had "transformed" Mary into God to the extent "that everything in heaven and on earth, even God Himself is subject to the Blessed Virgin."
Thus, the "humble Mary," the servant of God, she who was a mere creature of God has been catapulted y the Roman Catholic Church to a position of extraordinary prominence, nay to the position of the Most High!
