I like to go on youtube every once in a while. I recently found a man who puts up videos about Mormonism. He is an ExMormon and is now 'born-again'
He isn't bad, however he rubs me the wrong way when he compares Mormonism and Catholicism. To the point that the Pope is like the Prophet.
I don't know why but I don't understand the 'save' the Catholics thing and how we are simular to Mormons. Ahhh it just frustrates me. Please understand it really feels like he is attacking the church.
Here are the videos
My first thought is, he needs a better placed microphone. :D
From his first video, I think his point is that good works are not indicators of good fruits, whether they are Mormon good works or Catholic good works. Other than that one comparison to Catholicism, he focuses on Mormonism. The knock-out, pow, take that Mormons made me laugh.
From the second video, whoa, now a cowboy hat and shaved face. His point is ironic, in that he is saying "codified" religion requires a certain belief, and then proceeds to codify. He says he doesn't know much about Catholicism. So there you go.
The third video, well, he lost me in the first 30 seconds.
The fourth video, your basic argument that Catholics believe we're saved by good works and religion interfering with a relationship with Christ. Plenty of threads here on those points. Anti-Catholic? eh. More along the lines of he's against what he thinks about Catholicism, not what Catholicism is.
