The pope, who Catholics believe is infallible, created a serious contradiction when he proclaimed in his first homily on March 14, "he who doesn't pray to the Lord prays to the devil." This clearly contradicts what he did on his second day in office when he prayed to Mary for the protection of Rome.
Jesus spoke some very hard words at the end of His sermon on the mount regarding the two paths to eternity. In Matthew 7:13-14 Jesus said, "Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.
Over the last 100 years many unbiblical methods of evangelism have crept into the church and have produced many false converts. Witnesses for Christ would be wise to evaluate their doctrine and methods so that Jesus will be fully glorified and represented accurately as we share the Good News with unbelievers.
As a Catholic, a skeptical friend of mine once challenged me with an interesting question. He asked, "If I was born into another religion, would I have been loyal to its teachings."
Justification is the very heart of the Gospel and a doctrine that separates biblical Christianity from Roman Catholicism. No matter how often Rome distorts Scripture, it cannot reconcile the clear teaching of God's Word as to how a sinner can become right with God.
Catholics often accuse me of knowing very little about Catholicism. They say I must have been a Catholic in name only.
One is narrow and leads to life (Mat. 7:14)
the other is broad and leads to destruction (Mat. 7:13)
