Sometime last week I began a conversation with someone who suggested the Catholic faith was equal to Christianity, this person suggested that Catholicism was a denominational equal. As I have grown in my faith I have picked up bits and pieces of understanding in regards to the Catholic faith and can quite honestly say it is a false pagan religion that steals from Christianity to make itself stand tall. All of which is what Jesus has warned about.
After this conversation that lasted through the evening, I chose to look into it a little further and listen to some podcasts by John MacArthur as he explained the heresy of Catholicism. Not only does John do a beautiful job explaining the dangers, but he uses a number of sources in these podcasts. One specifically that stands out to me is the Catholic Doctrine itself.
Here is a collection of John MacArthur’s research regarding the Catholic Church.
- The Scandal of the Catholic Priesthood
- The Pope and the Papacy
- Exposing the Idolatry of Mary Worship (Overview)
- Exposing Mary Worship: Catholic Dogma (Part 1)
- Catholic Dogma (Part 2)
- Mary Worship: What the Bible says
- Heresy of Catholic Mass (Part 1)
- Heresy of Catholic Mass (Part 2)
