“6 Concerns about the Catholic Faith”

 

As I sit here pondering how to explain why I am posting this audio recording by John Piper, [See 2. below for the audio recording] I am led by the Holy Spirit to share this truth that I pray God uses to awaken any Catholic with false beliefs about salvation…   These false beliefs include the fact that most Catholics believe they need to fulfill the 7 Sacraments in order to be justified as righteous by God, to enter heaven upon their death…

The Bible teaches us to speak the truth found in God’s inerrant Word, the Bible, with love…   As I share this audio recording with love and concern for all Catholics reading this post, it is up to God, to change their will…   Unbelievers must understand that it is by God’s saving grace alone, through saving faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ…which allows God to grant entrance into His heavenly kingdom upon their death…  We cannot earn our way into heaven by doing good works in the name of the Lord..  This is clearly seen in the following scripture penned by the Apostle Paul, in…

Ephesians 2:8-9…  For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of Godnot a result of works, so that no one may boast.  (ESV)

Pastor John Piper does an excellent job in an honest and heart felt way, in explaining why these 6 concerns should be seriously listened to and considered by Catholics…  These concerns arise primarily because of this scripture above, explaining that God’s grace is not earned by anything we could possibly do in our own rights, because we are a good person practicing our faith (religion)…  God’s redeemed children have a relationship with the Lord, established by understanding and obeying the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ…[See 1. below for a presentation of the Gospel of Christ]

When a religion goes against what God teaches us in the Bible…they are basing their faith on traditions and doctrine written by man…  Only God’s Word should be used, because the infallible Bible was “God breathed”,  as the writers were inspired and led by the Holy Spirit, when writing the Bible…  This means that every word in the Bible is truth…  We see God’s hand involved in 2 pieces of scripture, in…

2 Timothy 3:16-17…  All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. (ESV)

2 Peter 1:21   For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.  (ESV)

Some believe the Bible is just a bunch of fairy tales…  I am reminded of a day’s writing I posted several years ago…that I believe mathematically proves that man had to have help from God in writing the Bible…  This is based on the 1000+ prophecies made in the Bible…  Out of over a 1000 prophecies made in the Bible…668 of 668 prophecies have been fulfilled, with none of them proven false…  The remaining prophecies have to do with the end times…  This is impossible without God’s help…  You can read about this mathematical proof the Bible is “God breathed”, in 3. below…

I am hoping that sceptics would listen to the audio recording by Pastor John Piper in the link below…and let the Holy Spirit open their hearts and minds to the truth of his words…

I would also like to post a video recording of Reverend Billy Graham’s preaching, to honor his remarkable life…  If you have never heard Billy Graham preach…I would urge you to listen to at least the first 25 minutes or so of this video, for perhaps the best presentation of the Gospel of Christ I have ever heard…

Gracious God and heavenly Father…I pray that people listening to Your humble servant John Piper’s audio, will be awakened by You to the truth found in Your inerrant Word, the Bible…  Your Word is living and powerful (Hebrews 4:12), and I pray it would work in the hearts and minds of those who are not yet justified as righteous in Your sight…  I pray for hearts and minds to be drawn closer to You, and that souls would be saved…in Jesus’ most precious name, and for His sake…Amen…

Blessings in Christ,  bruce
