Basic differences between the Bible and Catholicism



The statements of the Bible or the Gospel and the teachings of Catholicism differ completely from one another in all areas essential to salvation. The pseudo-Christianity of the Roman Church can be exposed relatively easily by comparing its dogmas with the teachings of Holy Scripture.

A few basic differences are enough

Every now and then it is useful to point out some fundamental and extremely important differences between the statements of the Gospel and the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. Such a quick overview also provides some useful information, even without having to delve deeply into the subject matter.

The simple overview is enough to recognize the enormous distance between the dogmas of the Church of Rome and the Word of God. In principle, all other bizarre teachings of the Roman Catholic Church stand on the foundations, some of which were laid 1,000 or more years ago. These are then simply referred to as traditions.

Deviations of the Church of Rome from the Gospel

Catholicism takes a completely different approach

The following bullet points represent only the fundamental differences between the teachings of the Gospel and the dogmas of the Roman Catholic Church. In many areas, these deviations are even decisive for salvation, because the redemptive work of Jesus Christ through His sacrifice and His blood knows no alternatives, deviations, modifications or reductions.

Foundation for permanent blasphemy

Pseudo Jesus Mithras
Pseudo Jesus – sun disk and cross of Mithras

With such a pseudo-Christian foundation on which the Roman Catholic Church stands, it is no longer surprising that this pagan institution, based on the teachings of ancient Egypt and Mithraism (more Info), ein Selbstverständnis entwickelt hat, has developed a self-image of what the Bible calls the ” “Abomination of the Earth” (more Info). The Catholic priest John A. O’Brien stated it clearly in his textbook written for non-Catholics, “The Faith of Millions” (1938). His definition of a Catholic priest may mark one of the “highlights” of the Roman Catholic Church’s blasphemies:

In the 6th edition, page 270:

“When the priest pronounces the tremendous words of consecration, he reaches up into the heavens, brings Christ down from His throne, and places Him upon our altar to be offered up again as the victim for the sins of man. It is a power greater than that of monarchs and emporers. It is greater than that of saints and angels, greater than that of Seraphim and Cherubim. Indeed it is greater even than the power of the Virgin Mary. For, while the Blessed Virgin was the human agenc by which Christ became incarnate a single time, the priest brings Christ down from Heaven, and renders Him present on our altar as the eternal Victim for the sins of man – not once but a thousand times! The priest speaks and lo! Christ, the eternal and omnipotent God, bows His head in humble obedience to the priest’s command.”

The sacrilege of the Eucharist

Host sacrificed to idols
Eucharist is one of the worst crimes of the Church of Rome

This passage alone in the Catholic priest’s book fundamentally contradicts the Gospel. This teaching completely overturns the saving work of Jesus Christ, exalting the priest, a sinful human being, above everything earthly and heavenly, right up to Jesus Christ himself, in order to drag him from the heavenly throne down to the altar as a submissive sacrificial lamb. Jesus Christ submissively follows the priest’s instructions and allows himself to be sacrificed by him.
Anyone who does not recognize this as diabolical should take Isaiah 5:20 to heart:
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

Catechism paragraph 1374

The Roman Catholic Church declares that Jesus, sacrificed by the priest, is to be eaten in slices as a “host”, physically and truly transformed into the flesh of Jesus. As described in the Catholic Catechichm:

“1374 The mode of Christ’s presence under the Eucharistic species is unique. It raises the Eucharist above all the sacraments as “the perfection of the spiritual life and the end to which all the sacraments tend.” In the most blessed sacrament of the Eucharist “the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ and, therefore, the whole Christ is truly, really, and substantially contained.” “This presence is called ‘real’ – by which is not intended to exclude the other types of presence as if they could not be ‘real’ too, but because it is presence in the fullest sense: that is to say, it is a substantial presence by which Christ, God and man, makes himself wholly and entirely present.”

Blasphemy by the Church of Rome is unprecedented

Further examples of the Roman Church’s self-produced evidence that it is the “man of sin”, “son of perdition”, and the “mother of all whores” described in Scripture can be found here.

Catholicism – Not Catholics

Bible reading
The truth is only in the Bible

The Catholicism of the Roman Church and all its branches are the greatest evil this planet has ever seen. This “abomination of the earth” must be pointed out loudly, but not to the Catholic staying in this church. Who among these church members would describe themselves as “adversaries of God and Jesus Christ” and “faithful servants of the adversary”? They are all deceived and act in good faith. The Roman Catholic Church has done a brilliant job of packaging its paganism, which originated and continued in ancient times, as “pious Christianity”. As far as the bishops and cardinals are concerned, ignorance should no longer apply here.

God knows his own. There are also many people in the Roman Catholic Church who believe in Jesus Christ with “body, soul and heart” in the way He and His work of salvation are described in the Gospel. For them the Savior left an urgent call in Revelation 18:4:

Come out of her [Babylon], my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

Some Evidence from the Gospel

Read the Bible yourself
Read the Bible yourself and examine statements from the Church of Rome

If the Roman Catholic Church were to make it clear on its own initiative that it is not at all in accordance with the Gospel, but rather is spreading its own teachings of “Catholicism”, then people could decide knowingly. Either the Catholic Church or Christianity. But the Church of Rome presents itself as “Christian” and therefore knowingly and deliberately leads people to ruin(see Revelation 13:2).

The following are a few statements from the Bible that warned of the emerging heresies as early as the time of the apostles and also unhinged some of the dogmas of the Roman Catholic Church.

1 Corinthians 15:1-4

The fundamentals of the gospel. Only the written Word of God counts. No tradition and no “additional teachings”.
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”

2 Timothy 3:16

Only Scripture is God-breathed and not any visions from old “church fathers” and “saints”.
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”

Mark 7:13

Warning against teachers who want to partially nullify the Word of God with their own teachings.
“Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.”

Acts 17:11

Scripture is the only source of faith and also the only test of any doctrine.
These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

Colossians 2:8

Further warning against false teachers.
“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”

Acts 20:29-31

Warning of creeping and emerging false teachers
” For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.”

Matthew 16:23

The papacy claims to stand on the “Rock of Peter.” Peter was the first pope. But even Peter was not infallible, as the Pope claims to be today.
“But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.”

Galatians 2:11-14

Peter was so fallible that he acted unjustly against other people. Paul rebuked Peter.
“But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed. For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision. And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation. But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?

1 Peter 2:7-8

The Bible says in several places that it is not Peter who is the rock, but Jesus Christ himself.
“Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.”

and 1 Corinthians 10:4
“And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.”

and Psalm 78:35
“And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer.”

Hebrews 10:10

Jesus Christ sacrificed himself once and finally. The Catholic Church sacrifices Jesus thousands of times every day.
“By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.”

Hebrews 10:12

After His sacrifice and His ascension, Jesus Christ sits at the right hand of God forever.
“But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;”

Hebrews 10:18

The forgiveness of Jesus Christ makes any (further) sacrifice unnecessary. The sacrificial system was completely abolished with Jesus’ death and resurrection.
“Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.”

2 Corinthians 5:21

In Jesus Christ we have righteousness, by His grace alone.
“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

Ephesians 3:17

Jesus Christ lives in our hearts (spiritually) and not in our stomachs as a “morsel of meat”.
“That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,”

Ephesians 2:8-9

Salvation by grace based on faith and not by “good deeds” or sacraments.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
