Why Don’t You Leave the Catholic Church?

Dear George,
The Catholic Church DOES have the Truth. Your Church is not telling you the truth about the beliefs of the Catholic Church. I would like for you to read what the Catholic Church teaches in our Catechism. It is online.

We don’t worship Mary or the Saints. We are not slaves. If you knew more Catholics you would know why that statement makes me smile. We don’t earn our salvation; our good works are in line with

James 2:19 You believe that there is one God; good, but the devils also believe, and tremble.20 But don’t you know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?

and as St. Paul said,

Colossians 1:24 Now I rejoice in what I am suffering for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church.

We are born again in baptism just like Jesus said.

John 3:3 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”4 “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!”5 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of WATER and the Spirit.

These judgments you have made are very uncharitable. I know you mean well but you have been misinformed.

As for Fr. Bennett who left the Church, I don’t know what his story is but all priests and ministers are targets of our Enemy. And being a Catholic is much more demanding than being a Protestant because we cannot be our own pope. And it is even more demanding and lonely to be a Catholic Priest. His leaving the Church proves nothing. I don’t think he is a liar but he is deceived by the Enemy.

Peter was married. What explanation do I need to give? He was married before he was a disciple of Christ and before he was a priest and bishop and before the Church discipline of celibacy of priests was instituted.

We do not follow the tradition of men but that of Jesus Christ Himself. John’s gospel (John 21:25) tells us that all that Jesus did could never be written down. These unwritten teachings that He taught to His disciples are our Sacred Tradition–NOTHING LESS THAN THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS. And we do cling to them just like St. Paul told us to in:

I Cor 11:2 I praise you for remembering me in everything and for holding to the traditions just as I passed them on to you.

2 Thessalonians 2:15
So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings[a] we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter.

We are in THE BIBLE Church. The Catholic Church declared the canon of Scripture. And we hear the whole Bible in our mass every three years. We actually hear more scripture at every mass than Protestants hear at their services.

Please don’t just believe what your pastor tells you. Do your own research by finding out what the Catholic Church says she believes and not what Protest-ants say the Catholic Church believes. Get it straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak.

  2. hi, Sacred is not in 1 cor 11:2,,,,,, using mary as a worship tool, is wrong, mary , mother of god , is wrong, mary is a lucky blessed maden that god picked for christ to come into mankind, once mary done her bit, she takes a backseat, like john the baptist, no more, making her a god , going to far, lets see some bible verses, on worship is hard for catholics to be honest on this part, mary is not part of the trinity, lets not kid on this , you teach she died and went to heaven, still a virgin,,,, where is this proof, and its hard to wipe out her christs, had brothers and sisters no matter how you twist bible verses, ,,, salvation is on a works program, with your teaching, excommunicated) outside which we believe that no one is saved,Catholic Dogma; 30th edition, # 423) The Immaculate Conception

  3. Hello George,

    Thank you for taking an interest in Catholicism even if you are opposed to it at the moment. You are obviously someone who takes his bible seriously. I have taken the liberty of linking something in Spanish for you. Just in case, I have also linked something in English. They are all selected in random. Give them a listen. Give us a feedback. God bless.

    • Hello George, If you want to find out what the Catholic Church really teaches about Mary, purgatory, confession, Did Jesus have brothers, Do Catholics believe in the bible, etc., there are plenty of resources on this blog and on the internet. I’m quite sure that your heart is at the right place with the Lord. I really think that your time is better spent talking to non-believers though. If you want, we can continue our discussion by emails so we don’t disrupt the peace here.
