The Gospel and the Doctrines of Roman Catholicism

We will be teaching on the Gospel in Sunday School at Northeast Baptist Church this Sunday, May 8, 2016. Since our Pastor preached a series through 1 Corinthians 15 just before Easter, we will not go into great depth on the Gospel itself, but will focus in on the  part of 1 Cor 15:2 where Paul cautioned against “believing in vain.”

One of the greatest dangers to evangelical churches today is the acceptance by the New Evangelical movement’s leaders of Roman Catholicism and its embrace of its popes and its disregard for Rome’s serious errors. The trend for the past half century, since Billy Graham’s invitations for Catholic bishops and/or priests to attend on the platform with him at his crusades has opened the door wide open in the minds of Christians to “see no harm” in working with Roman Catholics. Perhaps the Moral Majority movement of Jerry Falwell saw no harm in co-working in its fight against abortion and other cultural ills. But they were short-sighted in the side effects left behind them.

Has Rome changed its doctrines on salvation? Did this begin at the Vatican II declarations in the 1960s, or the New Catholic Catechism of the 1990s? Did it reject its anathemas of the Council of Trent against those opposed to its doctrines? No, Rome still holds to them all. She has just put on a sheep’s wool to cover its ravening wolf’s teeth until she has managed to return all those who name the name of Christ back under her control.

Here is an excellent paper at Way of Life Ministries on Roman Catholic Heresies Documented. Please join us tomorrow at 10am as we look into the greatest threat to those who stand for truth in the Gospel believing and Bible preaching churches. I believe there is an attitude of apathetical disregard  among us today because of leaders of this grievous error.
