Why does Mel Gibson hate the Catholic Church?

The Crockmeister had posted earlier that Mel Gibson was singing a different redemption tune last night on ABC. Was he? Oh yes:

(Voice Over) So when we talked with Gibson and his actors, we wondered, does his traditionalist view bar the door to Heaven for Jews, Protestants, Muslims?

MEL GIBSON: That’s not the case at all. Absolutely not. It is possible for people who are not even Christian to get into the Kingdom of Heaven. It’s just easier for -and I have to say that because that’s what I believe.

DIANE SAWYER: (Off Camera) You have the nonstop ticket?

MEL GIBSON: Well, yeah, I’m saying it’s an easier ride where I am because it’s like -I have to believe that.

Oh Mel, what are you doing to yourself?

I told Gibson that I am a Protestant, and asked whether his pre-Vatican II world view disqualified me from eternal salvation. He paused. “There is no salvation for those outside the Church,” he said. “I believe it.”


“There is no salvation for those outside the (Catholic) church,” Gibson replied. “I believe it…”

We’re no experts on all matters religious here, but we’re pretty sure that liars don’t get to go to heaven.

No one goes to heaven! It’s bullshit!


Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, God.


What an assrascal. If there’s nothing special about being saved, why bother to do it? The exclusivity of it is the whole point. You either believe or you don’t go to heaven; in fact, you go to hell. Stupid? Yes. Superstitious? You bet. But at least it’s logically consistent as far as it goes.

And how is it “easier”? What the hot fuck does that mean? You get away with more sins if you’re the right kind of Christian? Less layovers on the trip to heaven? No waiting at the Pearly Gates, no interrogation by St. Peter?

It’s always a laugh to see thirteenth-century minds floundering around in the twenty-first.


And how is it “easier”?

I think that means that since you’re part of God’s secret club, it’s easier to enter heaven. Of course, every now and then some or Jew or Muslim or Baptist is going to sneak in while the bouncer is distracted, but it’s way easier to get in when your name is on the guest list.

[And I think the reason that Mel has changed his story about how everybody not part of his offshoot of Catholicism is damned, is that his marketing people told him that the Baptists would get indignant if they heard Mel seaid they were going to hell, and then they might not evangelize his movie like he was asking them to. So, he changed his theology for money. And THAT’S sinning against the Holy Ghost, the only sin that can’t be forgiven by God. Poor Mel. I hope that his opening grosses are worth an eternity of fire and brimstone.]


I’m just miffed that Diane didn’t do her homework and call him on this.


Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, God.

Does God bring us cool presents or cash, like the other three listed do? S,N!


Does God bring us cool presents or cash, like the other three listed do? S,N!

Well, Christians believe that if you suck up to him enough you get eternal life and nectar and ambrosia and all that, so I guess that’s pretty cool.


we’re pretty sure that liars don’t get to go to heaven.

I guess Dubya must be going to the other place, then. btw, when Reagan dies and goes to heaven (of course) does he stay senile, or go back to being dumb but non-senile, or does he finally become smart? Inquiring minds want to know.


when Reagan dies and goes to heaven

Goes to heaven?!? Don’t you mean “take over???”


Does God bring us cool presents or cash, like the other three listed do? S,N!

are you kidding??? I got so many presents when I had my first communion!


God has given me everything I have. Now, if I could just find my damn keys I can go see it all.


Caution. Christian here. Dont let Mel fool you
non-belivers. The gift of eternal life is free.
Yes,I said free. You dont have to go to church.
You dont have to pay money or sign anything. And best of all, future sins cant bar you from heaven.
But one must believe that Jesus died for your sins. Do others get into heaven who rely on their
own good deeds, (like giving money to the church) etc. Very Sadly no.
PS What I have discribed is basic overview.
It is not Catholic. The Pope etc say they are the
exclusive route. My advice; go direct to Jesus.
Peace and Love.


actually, since he denies the primacy of the Pope, Gibson is excommunicate from the actual Roman Catholic Apostolic Church, and he is, by his own calculations, going to hell.

Maybe thats why he hates it.


Actually, if you refer to Aquinas’s Summa Theologica, it specifically says that all is required for salvation is a belief that the following occurred:
– Humanity fell
– Hunamity was not able to bring its own salvation
– God had to bring salvation in some manner

I’m assuming that this was adopted as a lot of Aquinas’s work was adopted, before one criticizes the Catholic Church. I think one should look this up in the online cathechist at vatican.org.

As far as I know, pre-Vatican views just entailed that the Catholic Church was the one “true” church and all other churches were not. After vatican II, the idea that all church’s were preceding towards the one true church and it was difficult to say which was the one true church for only god really knew that.


God didn’t denamolize the world,Man did,to justify his own transgreshions.It’s not about being Cathlic,Jewish,Apis.Asembly of god,Methedist or Baptist,or any other group.ALL,every man can come to the Father, but only threw our Christ,his shed blood, that bought our salvation….Theirs will be many who think they know thay will inhearit the kingdom and will be found wonting.It is the cinter of the circle,the thing we hold most importent in our lives that determans our GOD,not discushions,religions,prinsapels of faith or none faith or existance or none exsistance.our time on Earth is just what it is the time God has given us to find him threw his sun Jesus


Sorry, that should be vatican.va:
Actually, I just found an interesting article about how that saying:
There is no salvation for those outside the church,
should not be taken in the literal sense. Therefore, i’m not sure whether we are supposed to consider the church here. It could be the current Roman Catholic one, or God’s church. Vatican II believes all churches are approaching the one true Church. I haven’t read anywhere that Mel considers his own private church the one true Church or the Catholic Church the one true Church, so I really can’t comment too much on his own personal views in this matter.
Anyway, it is an interesting read, particularly the stuff about ignorance being bliss, Check it out:


The whole thing about God is very personal in nature. It is not about your involvement in a church. Going to a Christian church is something you do because you want to learn more about God. God is real and if you read the Bible you will learn about him. God is very giving and loving. This film shows the great lengths God was willing to go to in expressing his extravagant love for all of mankind. Yes, there must be a penalty for sin. Yes, Jesus paid the penalty with his life so that we can be free from paying the penalty for our sins with our own lives. You can’t deny that through the ages Jesus has changed many lives – and wants to change yours today. Read his letter in the Bible written for you and ask him to show you how real he is. He is better than the easter bunny the tooth fairy and santa clause because time spent with him makes a difference. Please don’t ignore his sacrifice and belittle the evidenve of grace in many lives today


What does he think that he is to tell people what thier supposed to believe in when he’s an asshole himself.


The problem is the anti-christ attitude, our “American Attitude”. Americans have so much, we dont need to think of haven. We do as we wish, so much, God disappeared. We feel God ourselves. Both of US: Catholics and Christians. How can you have 2 different classes of people atending the same church, when Christ taught us to share everything?

Church in America is more like a membership club, where you are in good stand if you pay for. No matter what kind of work you do. Just buy your way into haven. Both churches: Catholics and Protestants. Some churches, even give yo a card. A magnetic one. The membership card.

Americans should not be discussing God while supporting Prison Torture. Americans should not be mentioning Jesus Christ, when de facto, acting like Facists towards the world: The ultimate anti-christ.


Jesus Christ is the WAY, Jesus Christ established the Catholic Church but we as individuals don’t have any say in individual salvation only God does. The real conflict is that the media and Jesus Christ mix like oil and water. We allow all media to determine our likes and dislikes: it creates and controls this world and HE is not of this world


Why do we sit around talking about this? The fact is that we all need to escape the coming wrath of God. What I mean is that we are all on a path to eternal judgment and there is no way to escape it by human means. It is everlasting punnishment for all wrongful things we did against God. It is unquenchable fire. The torture never ends. This judgment will occur in the near future. But, there is a way out of the judgment. Jesus became a man while still retaining His Lordship. He lived a perfect life and deserved the best that God could offer. But Christ, God’s son, laid Himself down as a bridge to God. It is only by His mercy and love that anyone could escape the wrath of God. He is willing to accept anyone who will accept Him as the only way out. After accepting Christ, one must then begin living a Holy life. This means doing what God wants you to do and not doing what He doesn’t want you to do. This is impossible to do by human power. So God is willing to fill every true believer with His Holy Spirit. He then allows Christians to live according to His rules by His grace. Then, when a Christian dies, God takes him/her to His kingdom so that He could be with them forever. He loves all people. This is why Jesus came to die, because He wants to live with us forever. May God reach you with this message.


God…what a load of twatty cock!

Religious people are stupid and that’s that and Mel Gibson is a prize CUNT!


Oh and PS Mary, Jesus Chris is the way to dumbness and that’s all!


God…what a load of twatty cock!

Religious people are stupid and that’s that and Mel Gibson is a prize CUNT!


people can believe whatever they want to, thats what makes america free. i for one feel that god is simply an explanation for the unexplained and a comfort zone for the nieve. noone can explain why “little john and suzy ” died in the car accident, so they go into their “comfort zone” and tell themselves that they are now in the loving arms of god in heaven when in all reality they were in the wrong place at the wrong time or pushed the limits to far, you can believe whatever you want to , but i feel when i die im just gonna end up dead in the ground for the rest of time even though all the talk of heaven sounds like a cool place to go but it sounds way to far fetched to believe. if anyone is reading this that is a strong believer in heaven and god and looks down upon atheists like the many of us in this website just try to IMAGINE THAT THERE IS NO HEAVEN ,ITS EASY IF U TRY common ,seriously try it. maybe if you would think a little bit more realistically you would realize there is no pearly gates or GODS PLAN its all an explanition for the unexplainable i could go on and on and on about how i do not believe in god or the devil or heaven or hell so fell free to email me anybody if u have alot to say about the topic of god and heaven



I would like to remind the protestants about something in the bible that they claim to know so much about’Thou art peter and you are the rock
on which I shall build my church and whatever thou shall boundeth on earth shall be bound in heaven’and who was St. Peter only the very first pope also Our Lord said that’ i give you the keys of heaven’that shows he intended that his church would be the only one that a person could be saved in.I am also a traditional catholic and im 15 years of age.we are not trying to start up our own little church. vatican II was a pastoral council not a dogmatic one so we are not obliged to follow it.If we are wrong now then catholics for 2000 years are wrong.


to the non believer and the devils advocate nothing can proceed from nothing so every thing would have had to have been created by something that was always there. GOD.


There is no Salvation outside the Catholic Church. True Statement. However, it is not true that only Catholics go to Heaven, but everyone who is in Heaven is Catholic.

Jesus instituted the Church, not man.


quoted from Catholic.com

Salvation Outside the Church

The Catechism of the Catholic Church, following historic Christian theology since the time of the early Church Fathers, refers to the Catholic Church as “the universal sacrament of salvation” (CCC 774-776), and states: “The Church in this world is the sacrament of salvation, the sign and the instrument of the communion of God and men” (CCC 780).

Many people misunderstand the nature of this teaching. Indifferentists claim that it makes no difference what church one belongs to and that salvation can be attained through any of them. Certain radical traditionalists claim that unless one is a full-fledged, baptized member of the Catholic Church, one will be damned.

The following quotations from the Church Fathers give the straight story. They show that the early Church held the same position on this as does the contemporary Church-that while it is normatively necessary to be a Catholic to be saved (see CCC 846; Vatican II, Lumen Gentium 14), there are exceptions, and it is possible in some circumstances for people to be saved who have not been fully initiated into the Catholic Church (CCC 847).

Notice that the same Fathers who declare the normative necessity of being Catholic also declare the possibility of salvation for some who are not Catholics. These can be saved by what later came to be known as “baptism of blood” or ” baptism of desire” (for more on this subject, see the Fathers Know Best pamphlet, “The Necessity of Baptism” March 1998).

The Fathers likewise affirm the possibility of salvation for those who lived before Christ and who were not part of Israel, the Old Testament Church.

However, for those who knowingly and deliberately-that is, not out of innocent ignorance-commit the sins of heresy (rejecting divinely revealed doctrine) or schism (separating from the Catholic Church and/or joining a schismatic church), no salvation would be possible until they repented and returned to live in Catholic unity.

Ignatius of Antioch

Be not deceived, my brethren: If anyone follows a maker of schism [i.e., is a schismatic], he does not inherit the kingdom of God; if anyone walks in strange doctrine [i.e., is a heretic], he has no part in the Passion [of Christ]. Take care, then, to use one Eucharist, so that whatever you do, you do according to God: For there is one flesh of our Lord Jesus Christ, and one cup in the union of his blood; one altar, as there is one bishop, with the presbytery and my fellow servants, the deacons (Letter to the Philadelphians 3:3-4:1 [A.D. 110]).


Justin Martyr

We have been taught that Christ is the first-begotten of God, and we have declared him to be the Logos of which all mankind partakes [John 1:9]. Those, therefore, who lived according to reason [Greek, logos] were really Christians, even though they were thought to be atheists, such as, among the Greeks, Socrates, Heraclitus, and others like them. . . . Those who lived before Christ but did not live according to reason [logos] were wicked men, and enemies of Christ, and murderers of those who did live according to reason [logos], whereas those who lived then or who live now according to reason [logos] are Christians. Such as these can be confident and unafraid (First Apology 46 [A.D. 151]).



In the Church God has placed apostles, prophets, teachers, and every other working of the Spirit, of whom none of those are sharers who do not conform to the Church, but who defraud themselves of life by an evil mind and even worse way of acting. Where the Church is, there is the Spirit of God; where the Spirit of God is, there is the Church and all grace (Against Heresies 3:24:1 [A.D. 189]).



[The spiritual man] shall also judge those who give rise to schisms, who are destitute of the love of God, and who look to their own special advantage rather than to the unity of the Church; and who for trifling reasons, or any kind of reason which occurs to them, cut in pieces and divide the great and glorious body of Christ, and so far as in them lies, destroy it-men who prate of peace while they give rise to war, and do in truth strain out a gnat, but swallow a camel. For they can bring about no “reformation” of enough importance to compensate for the evil arising from their schism. . . . True knowledge is that which consists in the doctrine of the apostles, and the ancient constitution of the Church throughout all the world, and the distinctive manifestation of the body of Christ according to the successions of the bishops, by which they have handed down that Church which exists in every place [i.e., the Catholic Church] (ibid., 4:33:7-8).



There was never a time when God did not want men to be just; he was always concerned about that. Indeed, he always provided beings endowed with reason with occasions for practicing virtue and doing what is right. In every generation the Wisdom of God descended into those souls which he found holy and made them to be prophets and friends of God (Against Celsus 4:7 [A.D. 248]).



If someone from this people wants to be saved, let him come into to this house so that he may be able to attain his salvation. . . . Let no one, then, be persuaded otherwise, nor let anyone deceive himself: Outside of this house, that is, outside of the Church, no one is saved; for, if anyone should go out of it, he is guilty of his own death (Homilies on Joshua 3:5 [A.D. 250]).


Cyprian of Carthage

Whoever is separated from the Church and is joined to an adulteress [a schismatic church] is separated from the promises of the Church, nor will he that forsakes the Church of Christ attain to the rewards of Christ. He is an alien, a worldling, and an enemy. He cannot have God for his Father who has not the Church for his mother (The Unity of the Catholic Church 6, 1st ed. [A.D. 251]).


Cyprian of Carthage

Let them not think that the way of life or salvation exists for them, if they have refused to obey the bishops and priests, since the Lord says in the book of Deuteronomy: “And any man who has the insolence to refuse to listen to the priest or judge, whoever he may be in those days, that man shall die” [Deut. 17:12-13]. And then, indeed, they were killed with the sword . . . but now the proud and insolent are killed with the sword of the Spirit, when they are cast out from the Church. For they cannot live outside, since there is only one house of God, and there can be no salvation for anyone except in the Church (Letters 61[4]:4 [A.D. 253]).


Cyprian of Carthage

The baptism of public witness [desire] and of blood cannot profit a heretic unto salvation, because there is no salvation outside the Church (Letters 72[73]:21 [A.D. 253]).


Treatise on Rebaptism

Outside the Church there is no Holy Spirit, sound faith moreover cannot exist, not alone among heretics, but even among those who are established in schism (Treatise on Rebaptism 10 [A.D. 256]).



It is, therefore, the Catholic Church alone that retains true worship. This is the fountain of truth; this, the domicile of faith; this, the temple of God. Whoever does not enter there or whoever does not go out from there, he is a stranger to the hope of life and salvation. . . . Because, however, all the various groups of heretics are confident that they are the Christians and think that theirs is the Catholic Church, let it be known that this is the true Church, in which there is confession and penance and which takes a health-promoting care of the sins and wounds to which the weak flesh is subject (Divine Institutes 4:30:11-13 [A.D. 307]).



Heretics bring sentence upon themselves since they by their own choice withdraw from the Church, a withdrawal which, since they are aware of it, constitutes damnation. Between heresy and schism there is this difference: that heresy involves perverse doctrine, while schism separates one from the Church on account of disagreement with the bishop. Nevertheless, there is no schism which does not trump up a heresy to justify its departure from the Church (Commentary on Titus 3:10-11 [A.D. 386]).



We believe also in the holy Church, that is, the Catholic Church. For heretics violate the faith itself by a false opinion about God; schismatics, however, withdraw from fraternal love by hostile separations, although they believe the same things we do. Consequently, neither heretics nor schismatics belong to the Catholic Church; not heretics, because the Church loves God; and not schismatics, because the Church loves neighbor (Faith and the Creed 10:21 [A.D. 393]).



Just as baptism is of no profit to the man who renounces the world in words and not in deeds, so it is of no profit to him who is baptized in heresy or schism; but each of them, when he amends his ways, begins to receive profit from that which before was not profitable, but was yet already in him (On Baptism, Against the Donatists 4:4[6] [A.D. 400]).



I do not hesitate to put the Catholic catechumen, burning with divine love, before a baptized heretic. Even within the Catholic Church herself we put the good catechumen ahead of the wicked baptized person. . . . . For Cornelius, even before his baptism, was filled up with the Holy Spirit [Acts 10:44-48], while Simon [Magus], even after his baptism, was puffed up with an unclean spirit [Acts 8:13-19] (ibid., 4:21[28]).



When we speak of within and without in relation to the Church, it is the position of the heart that we must consider, not that of the body. . . . All who are within [the Church] in heart are saved in the unity of the ark (ibid., 5:28[39]).


Fulgentius of Ruspe

Anyone who receives the sacrament of baptism, whether in the Catholic Church or in a heretical or schismatic one, receives the whole sacrament; but salvation, which is the strength of the sacrament, he will not have, if he has had the sacrament outside the Catholic Church. He must therefore return to the Church, not so that he might receive again the sacrament of baptism, which no one dare repeat in any baptized person, but so that he may receive eternal life in Catholic society, for the obtaining of which no one is suited who, even with the sacrament of baptism, remains estranged from the Catholic Church (The Rule of Faith 43 [A.D. 524]).


Look, Mel is a douche.Christianity has nothing to do with exclusivity. Jesus loved and spoke with everyone. He also taught not to judge others or we will be judged in return. I was raised Catholic but I believe this church is a falsehood that misrepresents Jesus’ true message. It states in the bible a man hanging from a cross is a cursed thing, so why do the Catholic church have Jesus hanging from a cross. It is blasphemy just as drinking gods blood and eating his flesh is. Jesus spoke in parables, this was not literal. He also said he was the lamb of god, maybe Catholics should worship lambs also. The only way to salvation is to accept Jesus and his father as your creator and to accept he died for your sins. Praying to anyone but god is a complete waste of time.


My goodness, how you Catholics have got it so wrong is beyong my Christian comprahension. Where in the Bible does it ever mention that Peter started the Catholic Church? It doesn’t. Peter spread the word of Christ, hence his church being that of Christianity, a faith in God and the belief in Christ dying for our sins on the cross. Catholicism is a complete tool by Satan to take people away from the true nature of Christ, who rejected religious dogma, which the Catholic Church displays at any opportunity. The big trick Satan has, is having the Catholic church Baptise babies, and then those babies growing up to be told they are saved in God’s name, no where in the Bible does it tell us to Baptise children, now the Catholics will retort with “But it doesn’t tell us not to” but it does if you take into account Peter saying “Repent and be Baptised” which no child can do, so is this not clear enough for the Catholic church who love rituals over actually keeping Christ’s message simple.
So these Catholics grow up thinking because they were Baptised that they get automatic entry to heaven, that they have a relationship with Christ, yet sin, do not work on a relationship with Christ and do not walk as every day Christians, yet walk as a Sunday Catholic why repents four times a year and think that’s what God wants??! The Bible tells us clearly that all being Baptised means is that we are following a theology, that we are telling the world that we now dedicate our lives to Christ’s teachings. How does it say this? It say’s it by the very fact Christ told John to Baptise him, now why would Christ need his sins washed away if he was sinless? He didn’t, which proves baptism is not how one gets saved, one gets Salvation when they are ready to come to Christ, when they commit their lives to Christ as their Lord and Saviour through prayer, not some Priest sprinkling meaningless H20 on you as a child. Then the Catholics pull this rubbish about “Well how does a baby get saved then”? They are already saved, all children are saved by Gods grace and love, but when of an age to use and understand free will they have to make a choice, Salvation or to ignore God and his offer of his son the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Catholics even made up Purgatory, and they use some very generic verses to try and prove it, or when they can’t do that they say “Well it doesn’t say it doesn’t exist”!
If you want to know Christ and be saved, seek out Christianity and just stick to the word of the Lord, stick to the Bible and don’t go to a church where old men wear dresses, where they wear gold and carry on with big stupid hats and rituals, as this is so far removed from God it’s not funny. That is religion and religion scares people away from God, because false religion starts wars, Christianity is not religion, but a faith in Christ and Gods love for us. Amen.

PS Look at the way the Pope parades around like a complete Goose, like some sort of powerful entity, that’s self adulation and worshipping almost a human God, read Mathew 7;21-23 where it mentions Priests saying to Christ “But Lord Lord, did we not worship in your name, did we not chase out spiritis in your name, and the Lord turns to them and says “Away with me you evil doers, for I never knew you.” This is to those that delve into religion and false worship, not those that stick to the true words of Christ and stay humble and meek as he wants us to. Also, Revelations tells of The Holy Roman Empire that will once again rise to persecute the Christians, now who do you uneducated believers of Catholicism think were the ones that killed the Christians? How do you think the Vatican was funded, how do you think Catholicism was created, from the Roman Empire not being able to beat and kill the real Christians, so instead they tried to join them, and from Pagan rituals they built their wealth with such inventions as Purgatory, where they took money from the poor, promising them a front of the line spot in the line to heaven!! The Bible repeatedly tells us that through Christ we go to heaven, absolutely no mention of this purgatory rubbish. The very last page of Revelations tells us “Thos that ad to this book of Prophecy I will add to them the plagues written in it {the Catholics have added to it} and to those that take away from it, I will take away the eternal tree of life and the Catholics have also taken away from it and ignore such things as Christ taking us to heaven only through salvation and through him we seek the father, yet the Catholics think you have to again wait in an invisible lne. Also, how can the Vatican {the Catholics} justify the welth they live in, why will they not sell the Vatican and all their possessions and put an end to world poverty? because they are blinded by Satan that’s why. When Christ comes back in the 2ND coming, lets see the look on the Popes face when he and his followers of religion are left standing just as Mathew 7:21-23 states those sorts of false teachers will be reacting!! As a Christian man, I hope they seek true salvation and humility for their sake and do away with false religion. The Catholics personify the saying “The blind leading the blind.”


PS Check out this, this will finally put a rest to how dogmatic and false Catholicism really is. It’s the facts boys and girls, so don’t get angry with me just because you have been brainwashed to be a Catholic, just ask your local Priest for the real truth, ask them such questions as

1. Show me where Purgatory is mentione in the Bible.
2. Prove to me Peter created the Catholich Church.
3. Where does it say to Baptise babies in the Bible and why did Christ not Baptise the baby brought to him?
4. Why do we worship the Virgin Mary over Christ himself?
5. Why are we not taught more about The Holy Spirit and having a one on one relationship with Christ?
6. How can you say babies don’t have salvation when the Bible tells us those not of an age of understanding ar saved, such as infants and children?
7. Where does God tell us not to marry and have children and to stay celebrate like Priests and Nuns do? Didn’t Christ want us to make and raise children to also worship him?

Now, read ahead and I hope you all start to see how Catholicism is a break off, of true Christianity and through the Lord only is there salvation, not through religios dogma, and by the way, at my church LightPoint Church in Melbourne Australia, part of The Assemblies Of God, we praise God in a modern humble way, no men in dresses, no false rituals, we just wear normal cothes and praise and sing to the Lord and we don’t have sermons that are formulated by the Vatican, we have loving Pastors who speak from their hearts and only base their messages on facts taken from the Bible and will prove anything they say to you from scripture. Is your local Catholic church doing this??

Now read ahead. God bless

The Difference Between Catholicism and Christianity

Question: What is the difference between Catholicism and Biblical Christianity?

Answer: Catholicism and Biblical Christianity are divergent religions. They are built on different foundations, and they propose different ways of salvation.

In principle, Christianity is built solely on the Holy Scriptures, the written Word of God. The Bible is our only infallible rule of faith, being sufficient to give us the sure knowledge of the Gospel for our salvation and holiness.

Roman Catholicism demands submission of the intellect and will to the doctrines taught by the Roman magisterium (the Pope and bishops). It is claimed that the Catholic Church derives its doctrines from the “sacred deposit” found in Scriptures and Sacred Tradition. However the faithful cannot verify these doctrines by referring to the original sources. The Scriptures are inaccessible because only the magisterium is able to establish the authentic meaning. Similarly the contents of Sacred Tradition can only be known through the magisterium. Roman Catholicism is mental and spiritual slavery to the Vatican.

As expected, since the foundations are different, so also are the edifices built upon them. Christianity stands on the Gospel of God’s sovereign grace. In love, God predestines His chosen ones to be adopted as sons through Jesus Christ, their sole mediator. The Son became man and gave His life as a ransom to secure their freedom from sin. Being dead in sin, they are completely unable to convert ourselves or merit God’s favour. Therefore God graciously grants His people repentance and faith to turn to Him and trust in Christ Jesus for salvation. Believers are accepted in Christ, solely on the merit of His righteousness and blood, and not because of any goodness or human merit. God also resides in His people by the Holy Spirit, enabling them to obey and glorify the Father, and to guarantee their inheritance in heaven forever.

Rome’s “gospel” is not good news at all. The Roman institution, calling itself “The Church”, usurps Christ’s mediatorial office, proclaiming herself as the “sacrament of salvation.” The “Church” dispenses salvation to her faithful in small portions, starting at baptism and continuing throughout life. Forgiveness can only be obtained through the sacrament of penance. The benefits of Christ’s sacrifice are accessible through the sacrifice of the Mass. Instead of teaching the faithful to rest in Christ by faith, Catholics are taught to perform religious works to “merit grace” and to do penance to make satisfaction. Even after death, Catholics remains dependent on the “Church” to relieve their suffering in Purgatory by masses and indulgences.

The Roman Catholic Church is a mighty obstacle to anyone seeking salvation, enslaving millions of people to a religious system and preventing them from coming directly to Christ.

The choice is between the Bible and the Roman magisterium; the choice is between salvation by grace through faith in Christ, or through human merit and effort in the Roman religion.

THAT IS THE TRUTH GUY’S, SO stop being blind, stop saying “Oh I was Baptised so I am off to heaven because of what a priest did, get on your knees in your own time and start talking to Christ today, build your relationship with him, for only through the son can we be with the father and as it says very clearly in John “Only those that are Born Again, will see the Kingdom of Heaven.”

God bless, and feel free to write to me at hiddentalentfilms@yahoo.com.au but before you wish to abuse me or disagree with me, go do your research and question your Priests who are misleading you, just stick with the Bible and what’s clealry written it it and you will have a clear mind and heart for God and his beautiful son the Lord Jesus Christ.


Oh stevie, stevie, stevie…
Jesus did not produce a bible, but a church of Apostles led by his choice as leader – Peter the Rock (Mt 16:18-19). From this Church, several centuries later, came the bible we all know and love as the inspired revelation of God The Word! But He never intended it to be divorced from the Church and Peter as it’s author/interpreter. If there is no final authority on earth like Peter’s successor and the Bishops united with him, you end up with thousands of Protestant sects each claiming to have the Whole Truth as there are today. Only one belief system is Right and Possesses the Full Truth; the rest are just partial imitators. I thank Jesus for the Holy Spirit that he sent to his Church and the work his Apostles were then inspired to undertake in their love for Him (read the story in Acts..). The same Spirit is still here in the Roman Catholic Church, despite all the sinners still struggling to perfect themselves within it – just like Peter and the 11 (and even Jesus had one of 12 turn against him). That’s why it’s still the largest religion in the world – because it is the eternal Bride of Christ and “the gates of hell will not prevail against it”.
