For Roman Catholics their source of truth is the Roman Catholic Church. They trust their church for truth and for salvation, and they believe that there is no contradiction between what Scripture teaches and what an “infallible” Pope and the Roman Catholic Church teaches.

They believe and trust their church’s interpretation of Scripture, which can be a fatal mistake because they can be deceived and won’t know it. The only way they can know for sure if their church’s teachings are correct is to do what the Bereans did in Acts 17:11, compare the teachings to the Scriptures.

The Roman Catholic Church’s teaching that Mary, the mother of Jesus, was immaculately conceived, i.e., born without original sin clearly contradicts the clear teaching of Scripture. The verses quoted below are from the the Roman Catholic Douay-Rheims translation of the Bible (DRV).

If Mary was born sinless, why would she need a savior? In Luke’s Gospel, Mary says, “And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.” (Luke 1: 47 Douay-Rheims) 

If Mary’s life was pure and sinless, why did she go through the purification period and offer a sacrifice to make atonement for her sin and to cleanse her? According to Old Testament Law (Leviticus 12:1-8), the mother must be purified after a birth because the issue of blood makes her ritually unclean. According to the law of the Lord, Mary went to Jerusalem and offered a sacrifice of turtledoves or young pigeons Luke 2:22-24 Douay-Rheims.

If Mary were the only human being born sinless, why would Jesus say, “there hath not risen among them that are born of women a greater than John the Baptist (Matthew 11:11 Douay-Rheims)? Surly the sinless Mary would be greater than John the Baptist.

If Mary were truly sinless, why did Jesus downplay Mary’s importance and put her on the same level as everyone else? After hearing Jesus teach, a woman shouted from the crowd, “Blessed is the womb that bore thee, and the paps that gave thee suck.” And Jesus responded saying, “Yea rather, blessed are they who hear the word of God, and keep it” (Luke 11:27-28 Douay-Rheims). Not only did Jesus not elevate Mary when given the opportunity, He diminished her status by making her equal with everyone else who hears the Word of God and obeys it.

The following Scriptures teach that all human beings are born sinners:

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned 

Romans 3:9-12 For we have charged both Jews, and Greeks, that they are all under sin. As it is written: There is not any man just. There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. All have turned out of the way; they are become unprofitable together: there is none that doth good, there is not so much as one.

Romans 5:12 Wherefore as by one man sin entered into this world, and by sin death; and so death passed upon all men, in whom all have sinned.

Romans 7:14  For we know that the law is spiritual; but I am carnal, sold under sin.

Ephesians 2:3 In which also we all conversed in time past, in the desires of our flesh, fulfilling the will of the flesh and of our thoughts, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest:

Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray, every one hath turned aside into his own way: and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is perverse above all things, and unsearchable, who can know it?

Job 15:14-16 What is man that he should be without spot, and he that is born of a woman that he should appear just? Behold among his saints none is unchangeable, and the heavens are not pure in his sight. How much more is man abominable, and unprofitable, who drinketh iniquity like water?

Genesis 8:21 And the Lord smelled a sweet savour, and said: I will no more curse the earth for the sake of man: for the imagination and thought of man’s heart are prone to evil from his youth: therefore I will no more destroy every living soul as I have done.

Roman Catholics can believe either what Scripture clearly teaches about the mother of Jesus, or they can believe what their church teaches about the immaculate conception, they just can’t believe both any longer.

“The Monstrance of Our Lady of the Sign, Ark of Mercy” (photo below) is an icon receptacle that holds the Eucharist (the large white round wafer at the center of the monstrance) for Roman Catholics to worship.

 

The Monstrance of Our Lady of the Sign, Ark of Mercy

The 9 foot tall, 900 pound, gilt-wood monstrance is billed as the largest in the world. Stefan Niedorezo was commissioned to sculpt it according to the ‘Woman arrayed with the Sun’ from the Book of Revelation.

Niedorezo’s design has the Virgin Mary surrounded by rays and a crown of thorns, flanked by angels, and sitting on the Ark of the Covenant.

The monstrance belongs to St. Stanislaus Kostka Church/the Sanctuary of The Divine Mercy in Chicago, Illinois.

Consider for a moment what the Roman Catholic Church has done here.

For starters the monstrance suggests that the Roman Catholic Church has replaced Judaism’s sacred symbols and Israel in God’s plan.

Then as Revelation’s “Woman arrayed with the Sun,” Rome’s Mary has usurped and displaced Israel’s twelve tribes.

Her crown of thorns has usurped and displaced the Lord Jesus, and her sitting on the Mercy Seat atop the Ark of the  Covenant between the Cherubim has usurped and displaced God.

“These two women ‘Mary and the Church’ carry on the hope that is Christ, they give us Christ, they bring forth Christ in us. Without Mary, there would be no Jesus Christ; without the Church, we cannot go forward.” Pope Francis, speaking to mark the occasion of the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows in Casa Santa Marta

Mary is not the Queen of Heaven. She has no divine power. She neither hears nor answers prayers, and sends no grace. She does nothing.

The Monstrance of Our Lady of the Sign, Ark of Mercy steals glory from God the Father, from God the Son, and from God the Holy Spirit.

“I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.” Isaiah 42:8 KJV

In the videos below, political commentator and conservative comedian Evan Sayet explains the thinking of the modern left and today’s Democrats. These videos are a must see for anyone who doesn’t understand the rise of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and what’s going on in today’s Democrat Party.

According to Sayet, people on the left believe that knowledge and thought are acts of bigotry, and truth doesn’t matter to them. They side with evil over good, wrong over right, ugly over beautiful, profane over profound, and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success. They insist that no culture is better than any other culture, which means that success is unjust, great success is a great injustice, and long and sustained success is the greatest injustice of all.

Sayet says that the 1980s outlawed critical thinking, making it a hate crime and subsequently turning knowledge and thought into acts of bigotry. “It’s not that the liberal is stupid, Sayet says. “It’s that he’s made thinking into something that he will not engage in.” With that Sayet concludes, “The first time you think is the last time you’re a Democrat.”

“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!” Isaiah 5:20 (KJV)

God is the ultimate cause

God Is the Ultimate Cause of Everything

Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places. Psalm 135:6

And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou? Daniel 4:35

I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things. Isaiah 45:7

The Lord hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil. Proverbs 16:4

Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? Romans 9:19-21

Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: Romans 11:22
