Church Under Attack Pt. 2: Beware of the Wolves

In today’s world, Christianity has been mixed with other religions, specifically Catholicism (the Catholic Church). Even when asked what religion someone is, they tell you either Catholic or Christian. This now begs the question, is Catholicism Christianity? Are Catholics Christians? Or are they wolves in sheep’s clothing? Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he searches through historical documents and Scripture to find the answer to these questions and more in his video, Church Under Attack Pt. 2: Beware of the Wolves.

Matthew 16:18b
Matthew 7:15
1 Timothy 2:5–6
Matthew 28:19–20
Acts 20:29-31a

Beware of the Wolves

Catholics Stopped the Spread of the Word of God

Martin Luther 95 Theses

  1. When our Lord and Master Jesus Christ said, “Repent” (Mt 4:17), He willed the entire life of believers to be one of repentance.
  2. This word cannot be understood as referring to the sacrament of penance, that is, confession and satisfaction, as administered by the clergy.
  3. Yet it does not mean solely inner repentance; such inner repentance is worthless unless it produces various outward mortification of the flesh.
  4. The penalty of sin remains as long as the hatred of self (that is, true inner repentance), namely till our entrance into the kingdom of heaven.
  5. The pope neither desires nor is able to remit any penalties except those imposed by his own authority or that of the canons.
  6. The pope cannot remit any guilt, except by declaring and showing that it has been remitted by God; or, to be sure, by remitting guilt in cases reserved to his judgment. If his right to grant remission in these cases were disregarded, the guilt would certainly remain unforgiven.

The Catholic Church has never been a friend of the Christian Church. The Catholic Church kept the Word of God from the common people so that they could not learn the Truth of Christianity and thereby gaining discernment to see through their disguise.

Scripture was only for the clergy to read

19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.

Matthew 28:19–20

Jesus makes it plain that we are to teach the people to observe and obey all that He commanded. Therefore, they must understand what we are teaching. But in the dark ages, the people were kept in the dark regarding the truth of the Gospel. Only the clergy were allowed to read the Scriptures. The laypeople were not allowed to own, read, or distribute Scripture.

Catholics Contradict Scripture

Pope Francis calls Jesus a Failure

Many people believe that Pope Francis is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. We know we should beware of the wolves, but is Pope Francis a wolf? Let’s take one of his statements from 2015.

And if at times our efforts and works seem to fail and produce no fruit, we need to remember that we are followers of Jesus . . . and His life, humanly speaking, ended in failure, in the failure of the cross.

Pope Francis, September 24 2015

Scripture Contradiction

No matter how you try to twist it or spin it, Jesus’ life did not end in failure. No one took His life; He willingly laid it down.

17 For this reason the Father loves me, because I [Jesus] lay down my life that I may take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This charge I have received from my Father.

John 10:17-18

No one took Jesus’ life from Him. He freely gave it up. Why? Because that was His one mission in life. Why? Because that was the only way that we could be saved.

16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16

For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.Consequently, when Christ came into the world, He said,

“Sacrifices and offerings you have not desired, but a body have you prepared for me; in burnt offerings and sin offerings you have taken no pleasure. Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come to do your will, O God, as it is written of me in the scroll of the book.’”

When He said above, “You have neither desired nor taken pleasure in sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings and sin offerings” (these are offered according to the law), then He added, “Behold, I have come to do your will.” He does away with the first in order to establish the second. 10 And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

Hebrews 10:4-10

Jesus came for one reason, and one reason alone, to die for the sins of the world. Therefore, no matter how you try to spin it, Jesus, as a man, did not fail but completed the will of His Father. For this reason, we have to pay close attention to all of the teachings out there because we are sheep amongst wolves. So beware of the wolves.
