Took a post down!



Very recently I reblogged the following post, then I deleted it believing the blogger to be a Roman Catholic. For those of you who commented, Tom, Beth, and Dan, and/or liked it, please read the comment this blogger – Teutonic Warrior – made about no longer being a Catholic. 

Going Beyond God’s Word

  1. This crisis in the Church is greater than that of the Arian crisis. And I would rather be counted with Luther, Calvin or others who have stood for truth, than just go along to get along. Unity for the sake of truth is no unity at all. We all have to answer to Jesus in the end, and my love for him exceeds that for a corrupt organization.

    I am done with this corrupt catholic sect, and I think God is done as well! (not to consider a small remnant that God preserves) We are told in scripture to test all things and hold to that which is good. I therefore will hold to God’s Word, for the words of man are corrupt; and this includes the Popes. These men have Lorded their authority over Christians for too long! “So Jesus declared, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those in authority over them call themselves benefactors. But you shall not be like them. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who leads like the one who serves.…”(Luke 22:25) These catholic Bishops, Cardinals, and Popes are as the Nicolaitans of scripture, which it says our Lord also hates.(Rev. 2:6) And as far as private interpretation; 2 Tim 2:15 says,”Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” For years catholics have relied on these so called” Princes of the Church”to interpret scripture for them; leading millions to hell. This is why Martin Luther was willing to risk schism for the sake of bringing the TRUTH of the Bible to the people. Instead of leaving so many to wander in darkness with a false assurance.

  2. Maria, I don’t mean to make a mountain out of this so I’ll just be quiet going forward, but I am very confused by some of the information, even recent info, that this blogger posts. While he appeals to such sources as Calvin, Luther, and R.C. Sproul, he also has great regard for extremely traditionalist Roman Catholicism as espoused Marcel Lefebvre and the Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX). I have never seen an admirer of SSPX praise the Reformers. Does not compute. The two viewpoints are diametrically opposed. I am not trying to be mean, but I’m guessing that the individual may not have a good grasp of the basics of Catholic theology contrasted with Biblical/Reformation theology?

  3. Hi Tom,
    My position as a Catholic is in the past. As I was a Protestant for over 20 years, I am familiar with the teachings of Calvin and Luther, But this Catholic sect after Vatican II is too far gone for me. I was following the teachings of the SSPX and Lefebvre (who are in an official schism with Rome) because they are more conservative than the rest. However, Catholicism is in complete apostasy as I see it , and is under God’s judgement– I’m out! Still praying about where God wants me right now. I’m just gratful to make it out with my soul still intact.

    • Hi Rodney. Thanks for your note. Again, I didn’t mean any insult to you with my comment to Maria, but I was puzzled by your liking of the SSPX, which is even more hostile to Biblical Protestantism than Novus Ordo Catholicism. I see in your comment to Maria that you mentioned attending a Congregational church and I would humbly offer my two cents. Again, I don’t mean to offend, but I seek to be helpful. Like many other of the mainline Protestant churches, Congregational/United Church of Christ churches drifted into modernism long ago. I advise that you seek out a Bible-believing evangelical church in you area. You mentioned R.C. Sproul in your posts and R.C. was an excellent, Spirit-filled, Bible teacher. May I suggest even contacting the ministry that R.C. founded, Ligonier Ministries, to help direct you to a Bible-believing fellowship in your area.

      Lord bless you in your search for a Bible-believing fellowship.

  4. Hi Maria.
    I read this post today and thought you might be interested. The author is a eschatological futurist which I know is not your view. However, I think many of the things she says in this article are things that you would agree with. If you have the time, would you mind reading it and giving me your feedback? I’m in no hurry, just curious. I like your current header which fits this topic well and I clicked on “Catholicism” on your blog to try and find an appropriate place to put this.
    I hope all is well! God’s blessings…

    • Thanks for sharing your opinion with me, Maria. I must say that I’m not surprised. The more I learn about the Catholic hierarchy, the more I cringe.
      I’m well, thank you for asking. Still sorting through 80+ years of my parents things to try and figure out what goes and what stays. It is overwhelming. Thankfully, my sister is a big help. Combine a poor farm boy with a woman who only had two skirts in high school and you have my parents, the best Christian folks one could ever hope to have as parents. I’m am dealing with the only downside and I’m not complaining, but I’m definitely on the learning curve. There is the music, tapes, videos from 50+ years of my Mom’s choir directing, not to mention boxes of family tapes going all the way back to the reel-to-reel era. Between my Dad’s trips to estate sales and my Mom’s enjoyment of supporting thrift shops they’ve created quite a challenge. I wish Jesus would literally walk by and say “follow me.” In a way, I guess I’m doing that by honoring my parents by cleaning things up. Needless to say, several thrift shops will benefit from my parents eye for a good deal.
