Since Pope John Paul II set himself up as the dominant leading figure

in world politics, the Roman Catholic Church has gotten very

"evangelistic" in America, especially around the California, Texas,

New Mexico area. In the last twenty years, they have actually set up

Sunday Schools (if you can believe it) and have even bussed in

children to services, causing some irreverent commentators to refer to

it as "mass transportation."

Their latest is a little gospel tract they put out to offset the work

being done in Chino, California. I have one here called "My Ticket to

Heaven" and this is published somewhere by a retired high school

principal, Father Joseph Bernard. It has twenty-five pages in it, and

is recommended by Father John A. Hardon, S.J., "world-renowned

Catholic theologian professor, lecturer and author of over twenty

books." The tract was printed in Patton, Pensylvania, zip 16668

(notice the 6's, please) and the first publishing was 2,400,000

tracts. It is called "My Ticket to Heaven." So here we have a

renowned, famous, ordained Catholic priest and theologian who is a

professor (and the author of over twenty books), who wrote this thing

which has been called a "masterpiece" by Father Bernard, called

"Fantastic" by Pat Flynn of New Jersey, and Sister Engelica from

Pittsburg says "there has been nothing like it ever before," and so

forth and so on.

What is it? "My Ticket to Heaven?"

I will read it for you and if you want to buy the junk you can buy it

and go to hell like you were going before you picked it up. Page 7,

"Can I be sure of making it to heaven? God gave me the perfect

blueprint for getting there. He gave me exact directions, and every

aid I will need. Those directions are simply this...1. Keep your

face turned toward God. 2. Keep moving toward the gate of heaven.

3. Never turn your face away from God. 4. Never turn around to go

in the opposite direction. 5. Never commit a mortal sin. 6. Remain

faithful to God, and if somebody asks you if you are going to heaven

when you die, you are to reply "well if I don't make it it won't be my

fault" (pages 8, 9, and 10). "God gave me the job of getting myself

to heaven. Whatever is involved let us get the job done and over

with. Let's get to heaven, then my job is done. THEN I HAVE ACHIEVED

THE END TO WHICH I WAS CREATED" (page 20). There you have it. That

is your Roman Catholic ticket to hell, and if you don't believe that

ticket will take you to hell, try it. You will get there, and you

will get there on time. That is a ticket to the pit, and it will get

you there as quick as the train can travel or the plane can fly. You

couldn't get to hell any quicker than by following those instructions.

The Book says, "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but

according to his mercy he saved us." The Book says, "By grace are ye

saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of

God: not of works, lest any man should boast." The Book says, "To him

that worketh not, but believeth on Him that justifieth the ungodly,

his faith is counted for righteousness." Your ticket to heaven was

bought and paid for by somebody else. "For the wages of sin is death;

but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

This Roman Catholic ticket, this fraudulent passport to hell, put out

by a fraudulent priest, who is no more a New Testament priest than

Judas Iscariot or Simon the Sorcerer, doesn't have the plan of

salvation anywhere in it, and it is a blueprint for eternal chaos, but

nothing to get excited about. That is Rome yesterday, today, and

forever. They never "change."
