[Note: Bosco wanted to give us the benefit of his thoughts on the Catholic Mass. I would ask those commenting to do so patiently. I have left Bosco’s spelling as it was. Any links have been added by me so you can see his sources. C451. This will be followed by a post by myself]
I thank God for the privilege to witness to my friends.
Let us begin by seeing what the Catholic Church says about its Mass.
I will have to write myself short cuts because I cannot cut and paste for some reason.
The power of the priest is equal to that of Jesus Christ. He, the priest, reaches up into heaven, and brings Christ down from his throne and places Him upon our alter to be offered up again as the victim for the sins of man. The priest brings Christ down from heaven and renders him present on our alter as the eternal victim for the sins of man….not once, but a thousand times. Christ, the eternal omnipotent God, bows his head in humble obedience to the catholic priest.
Lets compare this breathtaking scenario to what the bible says;
Who needeth daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins and then for the people, for this he did ONCE, when He offered up Himself.
But this MAN, after He had offered one sacrifice for the sins of man forever, sat down at the right hand of God forever.
Where remission is, there is no more offering for sin.
Book of Hebrews.
The scriptures say that without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sin. The catholic church says its Mass is a bloodless sacrifice.
At the end of the council of Trent, the clergy, or who ever ran that council, set up a list of canons, or decrees, that said one is ananthema(damned) if one doesn’t believe a list of about ten things, I think, A few being that one must believe Jesus is truly and bodily in the wafer, or Host, I think, and another being that one must believe what they say about anything, or they are damned. This can account for why catholics seem stuck to that religion, because they are damned if they don’t.
This Romanish practice of bringing down Christ from heaven to sacrifice him again and again in order to relieve those in attendance from their sins means the Romanish religion says that Christs sacrifice on Calvary wasn’t enough.
As Jesus died on the cross, the veil of the temple, which separated God from the people, was torn from top to bottom, so now we have access to God for ourselves. We have now a mediator in Christ, how is our lawyer in heaven.
Then in around 70 AD, the temple was destroyed, the alter was destroyed, the records of all the Levite priests were destroyed. All of that symbolic stuff was gone. We don’t need it anymore. the born again are priests and Kings in the Kingdom of heaven. God used to dwell in Solomon’s temple, but now he dwells in heaven and no more will dwell in tabernacles made by human hands.
Now, the saints gather in homes or rooms and praise god and sing and fellowship.
The Romanish religion, not satisfied with Christs one time sacrifice, has built alters and temples and some golden cage that they claim God crawls into for their amusement. Levites were the priests. But the Church on Vaticanus Hil has its own false priest, its own false alters and its own false tabernacles.
Queen Mary of England, a devout catholic, and with the smiling approval of the Holy Father on vaticanus Hill, burned to death anyone caught saying that Christ was not really the “real” presence in the Catholic Euchrist, or monsterance, or what ever that thing they have during their re sacrifice of the Risen Lord. Not to mention she went about to confiscate every bible the people had in their native tongue.
Killing bible believers, confiscating bibles and killing their owners, denying Christ sacrifice. This is the purest form of blasphemy and for a surety the work of the Evil One, Satan himself.
During one of these burnings of a family, which was denounced without cause (all of the burnings were without cause) one of the females was pregnant. While she was burning, her baby fell out of her onto the fire, and was grabbed by someone, a official in attendance. Another attending official, obviously a catholic clergy, demanded that the baby be tossed back into the fire, which it was.
The Church that Christ founded.
The Romanish religion claims that this unbiblical Mass is the pinnacle, the height of its devotional life. And this is where God is encountered. Not enough to be at the height of blasphemy, it tells little children that to miss one of these blasphemous rituals is to bring downs Gods wrath upon them in the form of a eternity in hell. This alone is inexcusable.
The simple gospel, as told by the meek and lowly Jesus, is to come to Him and find rest for your souls, and learn of Him because He is meek and lowly of heart and his burden is light.
Thank you for your attention.
