Will a Christian Find Peace in the Roman Catholic Church?
A born again Christian could never become a Roman Catholic if he/she understood the fatal errors of Catholicism. How could a person who was saved by grace through faith in Jesus join a religion that condemns born-again Christians with over 100 anathemas? (Eph. 2:8-9)
How can a person who has trusted the blood of Christ for the complete remission and purification of all sins join a religion where sins are purged in purgatory? (1 John 1:7)
How can a person who trusted the perfect, sufficient and finished work of redemption join a religion where indulgences can remit punishment for sin (John 19:30; Heb. 7:25)
How can a person who believes he/she has the assurance of eternal life based on the power and promises of God join a religion which calls this the "sin of presumption"? (Rom. 8:30)
How can a sanctified person who "has been perfected forever" by the one offering of Jesus Christ join a religion which makes daily sin offerings on an altar? (Heb. 10:14)
How can a Christian who was saved by believing the true Gospel join a religion whose clergy is condemned for preaching another gospel? (Gal. 1:6-9)
How can a person who submitted to the supreme authority of God's Word join a religion that demands submission to a infallible pope?
