With all respect to your religion, I can understand why people would say that. The teaching of the RCC does not line up with scripture. I have purchased the Catechism of the Catholic Church and read quite a bit of it, mostly topics I had questions about. It was really quite shocking. More religion and tradition than truth of the word of God…
[quote=Fiat]Dear Sir Knight:
I have been running into these sorts of accusations recently. A friend of mine at my former protestant church left a copy of Dave Hunt’s book entitled “The Woman Rides a Beast,” at my door. The book accuses the Catholic Church of being the Whore of Babylon spoken of in the Book of Revelation.
I returned the book with a note, saying that I had already read the book. I also pointed out that just as Jesus was accused of doing the devil’s work, so too did He promise us that members of His true household would also be accused in the same manner.
In the Gospel of Matthew 10:25, Jesus says, “If they have called the Master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call the members of His household.”
Thus, when I hear people accuse the Catholic Church of being Satan’s Church, it only serves to confirm for me that Jesus’s prophecy is true, and it reinforces for me that as a Catholic, I truly am a member of Jesus’s true Church.
Peace be with you,
