The Poor Excuse of Roman Catholic Parishes to Keep Allowing Sinful Members to Attend Masses!

You can go ahead and call me names, accuse me of lying and making things up, go ahead badmouth me but I must tell this truth that needs to be revealed.  Having grown up in a Roman Catholic family that's been very religious, some people even pray the Rosary a lot, even pray the novenas during the evenings, I am sick and tired of hearing Roman Catholic logic.  I've been observing things and all I can say is, "Actions speak louder than words!"  As said, I am now a born again Christian by the grace of God, my life has been changed only by the grace of God (Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 2:11-14), in the Roman Catholic institution there is really no real repentance.  What is the issue I want to raise?  I would really want to raise the issue that the Roman Catholic institution is really what Jesus calls in Matthew 23:3 as the Pharisees say and do not.  The Roman Catholic priests are in fact the Pharisees of today no doubt.  

The issue has to be this- why are the Roman Catholic parishes still allowing people who are living in what they call as "mortal sins" as adulterers, rapists, murderers, pedophiles, drunkards and the list can go on to still attend the masses.  Just talk about it how so many people hate the fact I criticized them for their sinful lifestyles and their fellow Roman Catholics knowingly or unknowingly condoning to such sins.  While the average Roman Catholic who is trying their best to live a pure life may question such incidents, I don't.  My answer may offend but the truth offends as much as it can't uplift the mood but I'd rather be bombarded by harsh truths than to be doped by a well-written lie to lift my spirits.  A good example would be like a Baptist preacher would be asking a Roman Catholic choir to why they would still allow a man they are are 100% aware of the fact that he is a habitual womanizer, a porn addict, he badmouths his wife a lot, he is fond of dirty language and worse, his womanizing has led him to an adulterous live-in relationship with another man's wife whose husband died out of stress because of her.  Their answer?  After a deep thought, these group of friends gave me this for an answer, "Well as you see, we are hoping if he keeps attending Mass, if he keeps singing in the choir he and his mistress will repent."  That answer is just plain stupid.  Worse comes to worst, some parishioners dared to even say, "Well there's some good in them, look how prayerful they are and how much money they give per week.  Thanks to them, we are able to install the new airconditioner!"  All I can say is I feel sorry for such people at the same time irritated at such poor reasoning and not to mention the love for money which is NO SURPRISE since the Roman Catholic institution is governed by paying ridiculous prices for very long Masses that just don't seem to end!  If they read 1 Corinthians 5, wayward members are supposedly put aside to avoid contamination in the Church.  But since they are not part of the Church, they don't really follow those rules.

By allowing the person to keep attending Mass and they are living a dirty life, in effect it is allowing them to say, "It's okay, just go to Confession, pay for an indulgence and it'll be okay to take communion and attend Mass!"  Folks that is not genuine repentance because true repentance of sin produces results, not repeated sinful patterns!  Such actions will make the person sin more and more, besides God's grace is very much absent in ritualism, as said man needs to be born again, it's a start over never an add on!  According to the history of Christianity, when Martin Luther went to the Vatican and realized not only how insulting the indulgences were to the free gift of salvation but also just how sinful the insides were.  The more Martin Luther got into his religion, the more he found out just how horrid Roman Catholicism is by its actions.  While the priests spoke of holiness and themselves as holy and sinless, like the Pharisees they were breaking their own rules.  During Mass, priests even told indecent jokes to each other like toilet jokes and sex jokes.  In an event in the Vatican, Martin Luther even described how a drunken orgy happened in a dinner among priests and cardinals.  Eventually Martin Luther exposed the histories of the Popes and just how much of successors of Caiaphas they were!  Jesus warned in Matthew 7:16 that by their fruits, they shall be known and I've revealed a good portion.  Jesus was definitely not a bit wrong to call the Pharisees as hypocrites who devoured widows' houses and for a pretentious act make long prayers, were careful about rituals but never the laws of mercy, clean on the outside but dirty on the inside and while looking righteous were full of hypocrisy and iniquity!  So it's no surprise really that the priests are really having such a sinful private life and they could really condone to the sinfulness of their members as long as they make good money out of them.  While the average Roman Catholics could afford to criticize the Pharisees, they fail to see the parallelism between their religious leaders and the religious leaders of Jesus' day.  All I can say is that Isaiah 64:6 is right, the righteousness of man are but filthy rags- so much for teaching works salvation.  Ye must be born again!

Who Will You Believe: Pope Francis or the Bible?

Here's a cartoon of how tragic the afterlife for Roman Catholics would be when they realize that they needed a real, personal relationship with Christ to enter into Heaven. As I grew up as a Roman Catholic I didn't really care about the Bible. I even hear some Roman Catholics are told to never read the Bible for themselves because not everyone should be allowed to read it. The priest often says that reading the Bible alone will confuse you so you need their extrabiblical doctrine. Worse, they are confusing Sola Scriptura with Solo Scriptura. Born again Christians have their tradition but it's dictated by the Bible as a guiding principle to one's lifestyle. It's not that they read only the Bible but rather they have the Bible as their only principle for Christian tradition.

What is this personal relationship? As much as some pastors feel like the term personal Lord and Savior can be dangerous or "personal Savior" may suggest that Jesus is a genie than Lor…

When God Says No, He Means No

When God says no He means no! Do you know why the world is in a mess right now? It's all because Adam and Eve couldn't follow one simple rule that was to never eat of the tree of the fruit of life. I'd like to imagine it that God may have even put an "Off Limits" sign on it. But Satan himself always finds a way to convince people to break the rules.
Genesis 3:1-5 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

What Christians Can Learn From Joshua and Caleb's Confidence in Seizing the Promised Land

Being a Christian means you can be stuck in a pickle. Today's lesson will be from Numbers 13-14 which talks about the twelve spies to the Land of Canaan. I think any Christian leader going into much trouble today may find this as both a source of vexation and encouragement at the same time. It's a source of vexation because there are so many people like the rebellious Israelites in the wilderness. It's a source of encouragement because it's a reminder that God is still in charge.

The story of Numbers 13 talks about the spying. We see one member of each of the tribes that were given a political inheritance were there. We can see their names are as follows:
Numbers 13:4-13 And these were their names: of the tribe of Reuben, Shammua the son of Zaccur. Of the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat the son of Hori. Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh. Of the tribe of Issachar, Igal the son of Joseph. 8 Of the tribe of Ephraim, Oshea the son of Nun. Of the tribe of Benjamin…

Drunk Driving is Dangerous to Society

Consider this picture of a drunk driving incident. This is the car that the late Princess Diana Spencer, the late Dodi Al Fayed and the late Henri Paul (the driver) were using before their tragic demise. What was also interesting to note is that their driver had high dosages of alcohol prior to this gruesome incident. I don't want to talk about the conspiracy side of things but the whole ugly picture that drunk driving kills. But even after this incident and many similar ones before it is that many people still do it even if the consequences are clear as day.

The Bible warns that being a drunkard is one of the marks of an unsaved person:
1 Corinthians 6:9-10  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Modernization is Not an Excuse to Dismiss Badly Needed Old-Fashioned Revivals

I remembered reading through Jeremiah can be a chore because the events of that book continue to repeat itself. At the same time, reading through Jeremiah can be a comfort because the prophet chose to stand by God's command even if he momentarily stopped preaching (Jeremiah 20:5). One verse that is used to call for old fashioned revivals is Jeremiah 6:16 which says:
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.
It's a problem you start calling for old-fashioned revivals and people will call you outdated or a neanderthal. While there's nothing wrong with modern technology but the problem is when people only care if something is modern. While modernization can be used to evangelize but it can also be used to spread the influence of sin. The same printing press that allowed the late Martin Luther to publish Bibles was also u…

The Prosperity Gospel is an Enemy of Cheerful Giving

I remembered having a lecture on the prosperity gospel. One of the worst lies of the prosperity gospel is that giving money or the tithes and offerings to their pastors will turn you into a millionaire, God will spare them from trouble and that they can have the desires of their wicked heart. That's one of the worst heresies I've heard. On the contrary the more faithful you are to God the more you should expect enemy attacks. Some people I know are faithful in giving and their tithes and offerings yet they are not living as billionaires. The motive of giving in the prosperity gospel is to gain the false promise that God wants us happy, healthy and wealthy all the time. That's not cheerful giving isn't it?

If you give money to God in exchange for material blessings then something is pretty wrong. It's a terrible misapplication of Malachi 3:9-10. Do they even know that the blessings where there isn't enough room to receive it isn't all about becoming a billio…

Politically Correct Parenting Raises Spoiled Brats

Politically correct parenting is already the norm of parenting in this fallen world. What most parents don't see is that everyone needs a healthy dose of both Vitamin Yes and Vitamin No. But like anything beneficial in excess or in scarcity too many people have either too much or too little of Vitamin Yes and Vitamin No. While it's not okay to have an overdose of Vitamin No but what's so upsetting is that many people today take the opposite extreme. They aren't giving enough Vitamin No ad are given too much Vitamin Yes. Either way both are overly misguided approaches in parenting.

Is there anything wrong with giving the child what they want? It depends on what the child wants. If a child wants something that's going to honor God (ex. They want their own copy of the Bible that they can read for themselves) then the parent should say yes if what the child wants is God honoring. But if the child only wants to be like the secular children with all their nice stuff the…
