The Fatal Lie that Blasphemes God
Catholicism teaches that the sacrifice of Calvary and the sacrifice of the Mass are the same, “one single sacrifice”. However, God’s Word tells us after Christ offered Himself once as the perfect, all-sufficient sacrifice for sins, He entered into heaven to appear in the presence of God on behalf of His people. He is not to offer himself repeatedly, "for then he would have had to suffer repeatedly since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.” (Heb. 9:24-26). The perfect High Priest offered Himself, the perfect sacrifice to a perfect God and then cried out in victory, "It is finished” (John 19:30).
For Catholic priests to provide a re-presentation of a Eucharistic Christ on an altar is to undermine the will and purpose of God. For a priest to deem himself qualified to offer Jesus Christ as a sacrifice is simply arrogance of the highest order. Christ Jesus alone was qualified to offer Himself. "For it was indeed fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, innocent, unstained, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens." Furthermore, "He has no need...to offer sacrifices daily, first for his own sins and then for those of the people, since he did this once for all when he offered up himself” (Heb. 7:26-27).
Catholics believe Christ “is offered in an unbloody manner” during the Mass. However Scripture reveals that the offering of a propitiatory sacrifice must include suffering because “without shedding of blood is no forgiveness of sins” (Heb. 9:22). Therefore a "bloodless sacrifice" is a contradiction in terms and its purpose is to deceive. Furthermore to worship the Eucharist as God is the highest form of blasphemy. Tragically, most Catholics will not find out until they stand before the true Christ on Judgment Day and then they will be thrown into the eternal lake of fire (Rev. 20:12-14). It is my prayer that Catholics will heed the Word of God and come out of their false religion (Rev. 18:4).
