The only probable thing that divides these two religions: the issue of the Papacy.

There are some facts that Jack Chick reported: the Jesuits (Catholics) helped the Baptists start the KKK as well as helped Hitler write his book “Mein Kampf” while in prison in Landsberg for state treason.  The Jesuits have been kicked out of more countries than they are in – a bad bunch.  There are books written about how the Jesuits killed Abraham Lincoln because of his fight over slavery.  Catholics, like Baptists, had many slaves.  The “Catholic money” from Rome traveled south to help J. Davis win the Civil war, just as the Vatican's money went to Hitler and Mussolini to aid them in their fight during the Second World War.  Catholics have a lot to answer for at the White Throne Judgment!  I'm glad I'm not one of them.

There are no popes, nuns or priests, not even Catholics in heaven.  Come out from her and repent while you can, time is short and the end is near.  You had better believe it's no accident that there are so many homosexuals and lesbians in this evil religion, they are of the devil which makes not one person's children safe when they are with them.  Out of love of the Lord's souls I warn all Catholics to come out of the Harlot religion before it is too late – eternity is forever!

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:” (Romans 3:10).   Therefore, not one is righteous, and that includes the virgin Mary, mother of Jesus, who was blessed among women (Luke 1:28), yet she can save no one (Catholics say she is the Mediatrix in salvation), as she also needed a Savior.

Why is it people can not see, or even understand, that Christ established a Spiritual church, a heavenly body not of this world.  Religion of man cannot save anyone – neither can works save anyone, it is Christ Who saved us when He died on the tree, and all we have to do is to believe in Him.  Christianity is not a religion based on what one must do to get oneself in right standing with the Lord.  It's not even about a religion's binding rules and regulations, the do’s and don'ts handed down by men, the same men that would have you believe that you can reach God by doing good deeds.  This kind of religion puts people in bondage and adds a yoke around their neck.  What it's all about is what one believes (John 6:33-40).  True Christianity takes the focus off of our own ability (which really boils down to our inability) to make ourselves right with God.

Grace is a gift and a contract; we can't earn it or work for it.  We are all sinners who have a sin nature, and if we sin we repent, but not to a man or a religion.

Be aware, I speak to rebuke and warn in love, Catholics and Baptists are not Christians and shall be judged the same, as all of man's religions shall be judged.  You'd better be eternally sure of what you are BY the Word and NOT after a man or his religion.

Many people get angry at me because I warn and rebuke, but better angry with me, then angry in hell.  I love souls, so it's better to warn you now, because at the White Throne Judgment it will be too late.  I am not an “I told you so” type of person, I’d rather tell you while you are alive and still able to repent and come out of the harlot cults.  I wonder how the Catholic church will explain the Bartholomew massacre to the Baptists?  Will it appear as just a lover's quarrel?  Will they tell them it never happened, or will it be, ‘please forgive us, we didn't mean for it to happen’?  Who knows – just check it out yourselves.

Paul warns us to watch out for false teachers and prophets because they teach another gospel which leads to hell. (Titus 1:10-16) – “For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.  One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are always liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.  This witness is true.  Wherefore rebuke them sharply that they may be sound in the faith; Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.  Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.  They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.”   Satan is the author of deception by his false doctrine and religions of men.  We should know this well, for he used it on the Jew (Heb. 13:9) as well as Eve in the Garden (2 Tim. 2:14).  You had better use all diligence to discern when Satan comes around the corner as an “angel of light”, bringing with him “another Gospel” which, I might add, he does very well in a religious setting – “If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.” (I Tim. 6:3-5)

We must truly be in the last days, as there is so much evil, and the whole world's government system is evil and against its own citizens.  I know that Satan is having a field day, he's after souls and shall take them any way he can get them, and it's for ever.

There are a lot of God fearing, well meaning, souls who have a zeal for goodness, but lack scriptural wisdom or knowledge.  They are sheep being lead to the slaughter.  The Lord will say “I never knew you: depart from me…” as their hearts are either lukewarm or cold to biblical truth, the Word of the Lord.

People, use your heart, not your head, and live Christ every day of your life.  Christ loves all of creation…He doesn't want war, killings…He doesn't want religious church buildings, all teaching different doctrines…He doesn't want all these many governments to be evil and kill.  Christ simply wants Yea and Nay!

Baptists, you have a false gospel of works and law.  Catholics you have a false religion from hell.  You are both ready for judgment of truth, be on guard – leave the harlot!  To both Religions:  your leader (and I don't mean the pope or Baptist president), Satan, is alive and real. Only the Holy Spirit on earth is greater than Satan, therefore, trust the Holy Spirit for He is your only power to overcome and persevere…BELIEVE!

One thing I've learned, it's not easy to warn self righteous religious people in denominations of men.  One has to remember just who Satan is, a powerful fallen angel, “…the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.” (Ephes. 2:2), the tempter (Matt. 4:3), the wicked one (Matt. 13:19). Satan has clouded and confused the truth of the cross, in order to destroy the power of the gospel, which has been done by the various doctrines of men, leaving the religious man to despise the way of faith and truth. However, the devil can be resisted (Matt. 4:1-11).  It is only by faith in Jesus Christ that we overcome Satan, by our Redeemer's Holy Spirit.

It is true that many doctrines of men have been injected into the Baptist and Catholic religion alike, in order to keep people from seeing the truth. Here we have both religions emphasizing experiences, feelings or phenomena that only register to the carnal senses of man. We also see both religions seeking after wisdom and knowledge through their research and study, so that they might apprehend God by the mental process.  Both Catholic and Baptist religions teach their priests and pastors to seek a higher education and degrees in theology.  In other words, papered priests and pastors and neither being chosen or led by the Holy Spirit.  Right now, the fundamental leadership of the Southern Baptist religion is bent upon refashioning its doctrine and polity into the historical Roman Catholic model of creedalism and religious hierarchy.

Are you open minded enough to set aside your beliefs and accept what the Word (King James Authorized Version, N.T.) actually says?  Are you able to choose between what you have been taught to believe in your religion and what the Word of God says?  Both Catholic and Baptist religions panders to man's pride by teaching him there is something he can do to earn his own salvation.  But, Christianity is unique in the fact that it is the ONLY faith which is NOT a religion.  In other words, Christians are not bound by rules, regulations, and rituals in order to be saved.  Jesus Christ has taught us that His truth would set us free, and free indeed we are by faith alone through His gift of grace which has been provided us that we might believe that He shed His blood, died and was resurrected for our sins which will save us, NOT by our religious beliefs and deeds. No man can reach God by their own efforts and deeds.

Also, remember there are no gray areas in life (except for the lukewarm undecided people who do not want to offend anyone by their choices and will not be a witness of Christ.  Read Revelation 3:15-22).  There is only good or bad, right or wrong, truth or lies, no gray areas.  Now, the one truth in the end is that the Lord has already won the final battle and Satan looses.

All through these many centuries, Satan has drawn as many souls as he possibly could, so that he will have company in the Lake of Fire. Please do not be deceived and become one of them.  Choose Jesus Who will triumph over Satan.  Believe and live Jesus Christ in your daily walk.  Trust Him ONLY, not man or a religion.  Beware of any man who claims that only he has the truth, or any religion that claims of being the “one true church”.   Jesus Christ said in John 14:6: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”  The Word is our only hope for our true salvation. Study to show yourself approved.  If you are sending your child to a religious, parochial school, or Baptist, or Catholic school, you have given Satan power over your child to be taught another gospel which is of Satan's choice, and Satan is a liar and the father of it, and in him there is NO truth (John 8:44).

It is Jesus Christ Who “died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.” (I Cor. 15:3-4), and that we are saved by Grace, through personal faith in Jesus Christ, plus NOTHING ELSE WHATEVER!  Any religion which teaches otherwise is false.  Paul teaches: “If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed” (Gal. 1:9). Amen!!!!
