Catholic Truths From a Catholic
From Paul Nixon, the General Secretary of the West Mercia Roman
Mission, 75 Ford Lane, Crew, England, comes this very interesting
article which tells you what neither the pope nor the press are going
to tell you.
"What is wrong with the church in the present day? Clearly many
things. A few examples will suffice to show that many grievous
problems afflict the church, not only from without, which is common,
but also from within."
(From here on in the article we will insert the word "Catholic" before
the word church, because as you know, all news media writers, and all
Catholic writers when they say "the church" are never referring to the
Body of Christ, or any church in the Bible. They are always referring
to the Roman Catholic heirarchy, and the members which are in
subjection to the Catholic heirarchy. The term "the church" is an
extremely misleading term, so we will help them out by defining it as
"In the last twenty years at least 70,000 priests have given up their
ministry, many to marry. Vast numbers of seminaries have closed every
year, more convents close down, baptisms decline, mass attendance
nationwide is dropping by over 25,000 a year."
Now this, of course, is truth. The truth is the whole Catholic system
is falling apart religiously, while the pope gains strength
politically. That is the truth.
"For many Catholics, confession is a thing of the past, faith grows
weak, many Catholics especially in the teaching orders of catechetists
no longer believe much of the teaching of the church. At least a
generation of Catholics have grown up since the Second Vatican Council
who have a hazy grasp of the faith, and certainly have not been taught
many of the unchangeable truths of God. Such as Jesus is God, what we
receive at holy communion is actually the true body of God made man,
and must be adored as our creator, no human action can ever dissolve
the completed Christian marriage, the Catholic church communed with
Rome and the mystical body of Christ are one of the same thing, that
death is the separation of our body and our soul, that each soul
immediately after death appears before the judgment seat of God and
then goes to heaven, purgatory or hell."
And there they are. Those are the root doctrines of the Roman
The writer goes on: "Ecumenism is a new religion. It is very much
opposed to many Catholic doctrines. Firstly, it is a doctrine
revealed by God which we must believe for eternal salvation, that the
church of Christ is the Roman Catholic Church. THOSE WHO DO NOT
BELONG TO THE CHURCH ARE OUTSIDE THE WAY OF SALVATION PROVIDED BY
Now that is a Catholic telling the truth. The pope is not going to
tell you the truth. But that bird will. That is the General
Secretary for a Roman Catholic mission in England. The truth is,
there are millions of Roman Catholics who are completely nominal, and
know nothing about their religion at all. Their beliefs about their
religion are determined by the pope's political speeches that the news
media reports. The truth is, the doctrinal teaching of the popes
haven't changed any. In order to be pope, all popes have to confess
the Tridentine Confession, where they swear by God that the most
important and holy council the Catholic church ever assembled was The
Council of Trent. The Council of Trent makes it clear that every
Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Jew, and Episcopalian is damned.
The thing is, in the new religion ecumenism, the pope just
conveniently keeps his mouth shut. His "under lieutenants," like Paul
Nixon of the Roman Catholic Mission, know how the land lies.
