Catholic's Hoodwink of History
Click Link Catholic false teachings
Elijah thought there was no one serving God in his day, instead they were concealed from view.
2 Or know ye not what the scripture saith of Elijah? how he pleadeth with God against Israel:
3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, they have digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have left for myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to Baal.
5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
The hoodwink of history, was only so called Christians were Catholics or Protestants, which in fact were never Christians, why? They haven't in meekness submitted, believing in Christ righteousness to be saved, which is the combination of all steps of righteousness of faith (God's persuasion) believing, confessing (confess christ as lord, son of God, before men), repentance (turn from sin), immersion ( water ) in Christ for the forgiveness of sins and living the fullness of the life of christ in you. Trying to live a Christ like life by itself, ( without having one's sins forgiven in scriptural believer's immersion ( water ) for forgiveness of sins), can never forgive, justify one of there pass sins, even though this is required after being baptized, one can only have his or her pass sins forgiven, become justified from sin, at the moment of believer's immersion ( water ) in Christ.
Catholics or Protestants are very misguided, having blind leaders, hoodwinked, to lead many away from true Christians. The hoodwink of history is fed to many by Catholics and Protestants, wanting you to believe, there was only them in history, so you pick one of them, or go after the world.
There were true Christians for 2000 years, who being non-denominational, in meekness submitted to the combination of all the steps of Christ righteousness of faith (God's persuasion), believe, confessing, repentance, immersion ( water ) for the forgiveness of sins and continue abided in the doctrine of Christ. Having no central hierarchy but Christ and apostles alone. Christ the head of the church and the apostles, their teachings, decrees, the bible alone, having the only authority on how to organized and practice. Totally independent congregations of the saints, independent cells. Within these cells, congregations , when possible had overseers which would be elected within, of and by the the congregation alone, that lived up to apostle's standards for overseers, to guide only within their one cell, congregation.
This one cell, congregational independence was effective for concealing (for there was no man made centralize administration to link them together ) exposing them to the religious ZEALOTS, Catholics and later on Protestants.
The centralized administered groups refer to as Catholics and Protestants aligned themselves with the state governments (world super powers). Persecuting, through state sponsored terrorism, hunting down anyone who disagreed with them, torturing, burning many alive.
When a person, hundreds of years ago, was saved by walking by faith (God's persuasion) believe, repent, confess and being immersion (water) for the forgiveness of sins, striving to abide in Christ doctrine, some errors of doctrine may of been fallen into, which takes times for the words of Christ to purify oneself of these. But hundreds of years ago, having a bible and resources to study the bible, to abide in Christ Doctrine was greatly hampered, because of persecution was at the point of death, terrorism, by Catholics and even Protestants in:
1) Creating a religious centralized hierarchy ( a few men having absolute power) aligned with governments ( world super powers)
1) Keeping the bible from the people
2) Installing priest where the new testament never installed, authorized (instead the new testament regards all christians as priest, saints)
3) Priest would gather many old testament practices and make them bound over into the new testament, called PRIESTCRAFT
4) Using a dead language for hundreds of years in the assemblies of their subjects, that the assemblies couldn't even understand the language being spoken to them.
5) Exchanged (scriptural believer's immersion ( water ) for forgiveness of sins, which saves) for infant sprinkling, pouring, immersion ( which does not forgive sins, does not save)
6) Forbidding to the point of death, for those translating of the bible into the common language
John Wycliffe Born in the 1300s, Wycliffe criticized abuses and false teachings in the Church. In 1382 he translated an English Bible--the first European translation done in over 1,000 years. The Lollards, itinerant preachers he sent throughout England, inspired a spiritual revolution.
But the Lollardy movement was short-lived. The Church expelled Wycliffe from his teaching position at Oxford, and 44 years after he died, the Pope ordered his bones exhumed and burned. Intense persecution stamped out his followers and teachings
1. Why does Jesus condemn clerical dress? (Matt. 23:5-6).
5 But all their works they do to be seen of men: for they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders [of their garments], 6 and love the chief place at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,
2. Why does Jesus teach against the adoration of Mary? (Luke 11:27-28).
27 And it came to pass, as he said these things, a certain woman out of the multitude lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the breasts which thou didst suck. 28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.
3. Why does Peter show that all Christians are priests? (1 Pet. 2:5,9).
5 ye also, as living stones, are built up a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
9 But ye are a elect race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for [God's] own possession, that ye may show forth the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
4. Why does Paul condemn the observance of special days? (Collisions 2:16).
16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a feast day or a new moon or a sabbath day:
5. Why does Paul teach that all Christians are saints? (1 Cor. 1:2).
2 unto the church of God which is at Corinth, them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called saints, with all that call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ in every place, their [Lord] and ours:6. Why does God condemn the making and adoration of images? (Ex. 20:4-5).
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image, nor any likeness [of any thing] that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them, for I Jehovah thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, upon the third and upon the fourth generation of them that hate me
7. Why does Paul teach that immersion instead of pouring? (Col. 2:12).
12 having been buried with him in immersion, wherein ye were also raised with him through faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead
8. Why does Jesus forbid us to address religious leaders as "father"? (Matt. 23:9).
9 And call no man your father on the earth: for one is your Father, [even] he who is in heaven.
9. Why does Paul teach that Christ is the only foundation and not the apostle Peter? (1 Cor. 3:11).
11 For other foundation can no man lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
10. Why does Paul teach that there is one mediator instead of many? (1 Tim. 2:5).
5 For there is one God, one mediator also between God and men, [himself] man, Christ Jesus,
11. Why does Paul teach about bishops being married? (1 Tim. 3:2, 4-5).
2 The bishop therefore must be without reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, orderly, given to hospitality, apt to teach; 4 one that ruleth well his own house, having [his] children in subjection with all gravity; 5 (but if a man knoweth not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
12. Why does Jesus opposed to the idea of purgatory? (Luke 16:26).
26 And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, that they that would pass from hence to you may not be able, and that none may cross over from thence to us.
13. Why is the bible completely silent about infant baptism, indulgences, confession to priests, the rosary, the mass, and many other things in the Catholic Church?
The Catholic and Protestant religious centralized hierarchies aligned with governments (world super powers), kept suppressing through terrorism, persecution, death, independent congregations from forming and their striving to abide in Christ doctrine. The Catholics and Protestants, would accuse falsely independent congregations as all heretics. Its as if our country america had a religious centralize hierarchy, and decided tomorrow every independent group calling themselves christians are heretics, for refusing to submit to the religious centralized hierarchy aligned with the state, hunting them down and parade the many different doctrines, the most worst of them, as if all independents thought the same, needing to be destroyed. In so doing murdered real Christians, many whose earnest attempt was to practice within the bounds of the teachings, practices of Jesus and the apostles.
Catholics or Protestants have gone out side the bounds of the teachings Christ and apostles spoke and written. They have run after teachings, decrees, commandments of man, not of God, which especially Catholics have used traditions to circumvent, make void the will of God, Christ.
