Jehovah Teaching vs. Catholic Teaching

 

                  This is a study that will compare the teachings of the Word of God – the Holy Scriptures – with the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church- the teachings of men.  Truth will prevail, the word of God will stand without any minute alteration when all the works and words of man have passed into nothingness.  The Messiah said in Matt 24:35, Mark 13:31, Luke 20:33, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.”


                  The scriptures teach: “the Word is true from the beginning; and every one of Thy righteous judgments endureth forever” Psa 119:160.  The Messiah said, “I AM the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh to the Father but by Me.”  The Messiah is Truth; His Word is Truth. No teaching of man will survive, no man can approach the Father except though the Messiah and His Word.  Therefore, teachings of men must be submitted to the teachings of the scriptures.   If they pass this test, they are of Jehovah God; if not then they are a lie.  “Sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death” Rev 21:8.


                  In this study, all references will be taken from the Catholic literature.  Scripture will be taken from the Catholic Bible, the Holy Trinity Edition, edited by Rev. John P. O’Connell with the Imprimatur of Samuel Cardinal Stritch, Archbishop of Chicago.  All Roman Catholic teachings are taken from Catholic Publications.  The most frequently quoted work is the Fountain of Catholic Knowledge, published by Brennan Publishing Co., New York, 1899, with the Imprimatur of Michael Augustinus.


                  As we begin this comparison, consider the guidance as found Isa 8:20 “to the teaching and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this Word (the scriptures) surely there is no light for them”.
