“His Holiness” what they’ve told you VS What I’m telling you about this TITLE.
I took some time early this morning on calm meditation before preparing for church for the first time in eight months. Yes, you heard that right. I haven’t been to any Christian wall on Sunday for the past eight months or more. Catholic disorganized me having found out to be false all I have ever believed from birth. From the idea of infant baptism to worshipping idols to venerating Mary over our loving sweet Messiah–Jesus Christ. However, I took myself back to my days being Catholic this morning, I remembered how I defended idolatry and images in my ex church, how I uphold infants baptism, how I addressed mortal and fallible men as “His Holiness” and to crown it all, how I swore to die a Catholic. I wept after I remembered all these. What did I know I was defending? What did I know I was swearing? And today I am no more a Catholic. My teenage zeal was strong but it was led on a wrong foundation. l learnt a lot from my meditation that took me towards my past life. In that meditation I asked for mercy and forgiveness earnestly for I have been defending lies from the pits of hell. Folks, at this point, I do not see Catholicism as a church of Christ anymore. The church wrecks of paganism. I wish to elaborate on one aspect of their blasphemy against the Holy Spirit today.
“His Holiness” is a prominent title of the Catholic Church given to only the Pope. At the mention of the word “His Holiness” catholics postrates to popes. I told myself I will write on this when I get back from service.
Firstly, all created mortal men are fallible, and sinners. We are called to, but will struggle to live a holy life. To call a man “His Holiness” is like claiming that this man has accomplished or fulfilled the task of “Holiness” a state of existence that is God Himself.
Jesus the Messiah was sometimes flattered. This is one of His replies, with a clear cut rebuke.
Luke 18:19 “Why do you call me good and perfect?’ Jesus answered. ‘No one is good–except God alone.
Every time a Catholic person calls the pope “Holy Father” they are calling him God! The name “Holy Father” is found only ONE time in the entire Bible and it refers to God the Father! They are calling their papacy by God’s name as imposed on them by Ancient Roman Emperor Constantine who brought in huge paganism into the Roman church.
The following passage shows Jesus praying before He and His disciples went to the garden of Gethsemane:
John 17:11; And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. Lord, please help people to see the truth!
Jesus referred to God and only God in the Bible as “Holy Father”. Catholics claim their popes succeed Peter (Which I find untrue) yet Peter many at times rejected all forms of Titles and hails. To think that their popes goes to confessions too depressed me even yet these people cannot logically withdraw such title. The Catholic Church is filled with blasphemy and ill doctrines. If they are not sharing the glory of Jesus Christ with Mary today, then they are doing so with a pope. Mark 3:29 says; but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven, they are guilty of an eternal sin.
In the Catechism of the Catholic Church, you can see how all teachers of Catholicism is bound to indoctrinate all Catholic children, to make them believers of lies. This was done to me. Unfortunately, while I was able to pull out, many can’t due to fear of what friends would say, what parents would say, what guldience would say, even after knowing the truth. I overcomed my fears. Currently I’m the only one of my family no longer a Catholic. In a way it made me look like the black sheep of the family. Talks came, mom went agog. Calls came through my cell. But I thank Jesus for the turnover, leaving the Catholic Church is my greatest achievement 2018. I felt uplifted. It took me three years to finally make the decision I made September 11 2018. And as for Baptism, I might soon be truly baptized as an adult rather than that rituals Catholic do to infants and call it baptism!
If you are a Catholic, you might want to call me lost and blind, but I wonder who is more lost and blind, the one still serving deities in the disguise of images and statuses or the one that goes to God directly now through his first born son ~ Jesus Christ _The WORD of GOD_, Our Lord.
