Thought of the Day about Mormonism…er..Catholicism?
I just received this e-mail a few minutes ago (April 30, 2012 – 7:10 pm) and thought I’d share it with my readers! I was thinking it sounds more than just a little familiar…hmmm…I wonder why. Enjoy! And by the way, this nice person’s name is Matt.
It is extremely important to become a Traditional Catholic to be saved. Outside the Catholic Church there is absolutely no Salvation. Visit www.vaticancatholic.com Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus (Outside the Catholic Church there is no Salvation) is a 2000 year old phrase of the Early Church Fathers.
protestants will not enter heaven – for it is man made religion. Only Christians will enter heaven, not protestants. The Pope St. Damasus made the Bible in 400 A.D. He decided which texts were or were not inspired. Before that, thousands of texts abounded, while Bishops accepting some for their diocese, while other Bishops accepted different texts for their flocks – and never agreed as to the precise makeup of Scripture. The monks of the Catholic Church and its Bishops endlessly and painstakingly copied and preserved the numerous texts that were accumulated. The writings of the direct students of the Apostles were considered sacred scripture, and read during public worship.
All the Church Fathers defended Catholic doctrines and adhered to Papal authority in unison. Indeed, it was the decision of Pope St. Damasus that settled the matter on what made up Sacred Scripture. The Catholic Church is infallible in the person of the Pope.
Lord Jesus Christ only founded one Church, and on Pope St. Peter the Glorious Prince of the Apostles. If a church cannot trace back its history lawfully in an unbroken line step by step to the Apostles, it is not the Church. Apostolicity is easily proved by the facts of history.
“…the Church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth.” (1 Timothy3:15)
Matthew 16:18 And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
