“ by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no schisms among you; but that you be perfect in the same mind, and in the same judgment.”
How then can you say, “I am of Apollo 60?; Martin Luther 1517?; King Henry VIII 1534?; John Knox 1560?; Sam Seabury 17th century?; Charles Wesley 1744?; Joe Smith 1829?; John Smyth 1605; William Booth 1865; Mary Baker Eddy 1879?; Charles F Parham (Agnes Ozman)(1903; William J Seymour (Lucy Farrow) 1906?, or many thousands of Satan’s spirit filled Error and Division?” And Still claim to be of the One with Christ?, who founded His Church (Mt16:18) the one holy Catholic Apostolic Church, from the Holy Apostles Creed? You claim to be Bible believers? As the Church has pre-Announced the schisms, the errors to come… She spoke in the Lateran council A.D.1015; asserting the truth of Christ’s Gospel, as held by the church from the beginning:
“Out of the Church there is positively no Salvation.” – 4th Lateran Council, AD 1015
Did the Truth change? Is Christ the same, or Changed?; Did the word of God transfigure or become perverted? How can you be Christian and NOT persevere in the Word of God and the doctrine of the Apostles?; “ They therefore that received his word, were baptized; and there were added in that day about three thousand souls. And they were persevering in the doctrine of the apostles, and in the communication of the breaking of bread, and in prayers. (Acts 2:41-2) From Apollos to William Seymour, they all deny and reject Christ and seek another gospel. And you that admit to this, are guilty of the sin of omission for not speaking to the Truth of Christ.
St. Augustine says, ‘a theologian who is humble, will never teach anything as true Catholic doctrine, unless he is perfectly certain of the truth which he asserts, and proves it from Holy Scripture and the Tradition of the Church.’ Those who have learned theology well,’ says St. Basil, “will not allow one iota of Catholic dogmas to be betrayed. They will, if necessary, willingly undergo any kind of death in their defense.’ Why does not St. Paul say: if any one preach to you a Gospel contrary to that instead of beside that which. we have preached to you? (Gal1:9) ‘It is,’ says St. John Chrysostom, ‘to show us that one is accursed who even indirectly weakens the least truth of the Gospel.’ (Cornelius a Lapide in Epist. ad Gal1:8)”
And continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they took their meat with gladness and simplicity of heart; Praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord increased daily together such as should be saved. (Acts2:46-47) How can any of these false prophets be in; “One accord with the Catholic Church?” So clearly Anathematized by the Council of Trent.
“O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding the profane novelties of words, and oppositions of knowledge falsely so called.” (lTim6:20)
“As there is,” says Pius IX., “but one God the Father, one Christ his Son, one Holy Ghost, so there is also only one divinely revealed truth, only one divine faith – the beginning of man’s salvation and the foundation of all justification, by which (faith) the just man lives, and without which it is impossible to please God and to be admitted to the Communion of his children; and there is but
one true, holy, Catholic, Roman Church and divine teaching Authority, (cathedra) founded upon Peter by the living voice of the Lord, out of which (Church) there is neither the TRUE FAITH nor ETERNAL SALVATION, since no one, can have God for his Father, who has not the Church for his Mother.” (Encycl. Letter, March 17, 1856.)
Do you Suppose, that Augustine, the Doctor of Grace has been repealed to make 21st Century Ecumenism palatable? Because your christian brothers and sisters obstinately hold to Sin, rejecting the Bride of Christ, the Eucharist and Penance? Do you suppose human endeavors to pray with, rather than admonish and speak to Truth is better than the Lord’s way?
He, therefore, who wishes to obtain life everlasting, must remain vivified by the Holy Ghost; and in order to remain vivified by the Holy Ghost we must keep charity, love the truth, and desire unity.” (Augustine Serm. 267.) “Therefore no one can find life everlasting except in the Catholic Church.” (Serm. ad Caesarenses)
“Where unity is wanting, there can be no divine charity. Hence it is that divine charity can be kept only in the Catholic Church.” (Contr. lit. Petil., lib. ii., cap. 77.)
Now, as no one can obtain salvation without having the spirit of Christ, or divine charity, and as this spirit or divine virtue, which is called the soul of the Church, is kept only in the unity of the Church, it is evident that out of the Church there is positively no salvation.
In his Encyclical Letters, dated Dec. 8, 1849; Dec.. 8, 1864; and Aug. 10, 1863, and in his Allocution on Dec. 9, 1854: Pope Pius IX. says: “It is indeed of faith that no one can be saved outside of the Apostolic, Roman Church; that this Church is the one ark of salvation; that he who has not entered it, will perish in the deluge….
“We must mention and condemn again that most pernicious error, which has been imbibed by certain Catholics, who are of the opinion that those people who live in error and have not the true faith, and are separated from Catholic unity, may obtain life everlasting. Now this opinion is most contrary to Catholic faith, as is evident from the plain words of our Lord, (Matt. xviii. 17 ; Mark xvi. 16; Luke x. 16; John iii. 18) as also from the words of St. Paul, (II. Tim. Iii. 11) and of St. Peter (II. Peter. ii. 1). To entertain opinions contrary to this Catholic faith is to be an impious wretch.”
- Pope Pius quoted scripture verses:
(Mt18:17) “And if he will not hear them: tell the church. And if he will not hear the church, let him be to thee as the heathen and publican.”
(Mk16:16) “He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned.”
(Lk10:16) “He that heareth you, heareth me; and he that despiseth you, despiseth me; and he that despiseth me, despiseth him that sent me.”
(Jn3:18) “He that believeth in him is not judged. But he that doth not believe, is already judged: because he believeth not in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
(2Tim3:11) “Persecutions, afflictions: such as came upon me at Antioch, at Iconium, and at Lystra: what persecutions I endured, and out of them all the Lord delivered me.”
(2Pt2:1) Simon Peter, servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained equal faith with us in the justice of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ.”
“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” (Mt24:35; Mk13:31; Lk21:33)
his Dogma is not born out of misinterpretation of one scripture verse as so many Heathen religions have done, but from the Word of God consistent with Christ’s teaching obtained from His eyewitnesses, the Apostles down through the ages, before Moses to this day. Did not Ezra cleanse his race? (see book of Ezra)We have, therefore, deemed it our duty to make a strong, vigorous, and uncompromising presentation of the great and fundamental truth, the very fence and barrier of the true religion,
“OUT OF THE CHURCH THERE IS POSITIVELY NO SALVATION,”
against those soft, weak, timid, liberalizing Catholics who labor to explain away all the points of Catholic faith offensive to non-Catholics, and to make it appear that there is no question of life and death, of heaven and hell, involved in the differences between us and Protestants.
The Right Reverend George Hay, Bishop of Edinburgh,, Scotland, who, when yet a Protestant, took the vow to do all he could to extirpate Popery, wrote a treatise entitled “An Inquiry whether Salvation can be had without true faith and out of the Communion of the Church of Christ.” In this treatise, the pious and very learned Prelate of the Church proves most clearly that “out of the true Church no one can be saved,”
Verses the Masonic twist that all religions are good. Thus by omission and logic all religions cannot be true, but theirs. Therefore deny the redemption, our salvation from Christ and His Teaching.” To be a member of the Church of Christ is no longer necessary, since, if we lead a good moral life, we are in the state of salvation, whether we belong to her or not! What a wide field does this give to the passions of men! What liberty to all the whims of the human mind! It is therefore of the utmost consequence to state and to show plainly the revealed Catholic truth that ‘there is no salvation out of the Catholic Church.‘”
AGAIN: According to the words of St. Paul: ‘For there must be also heresies; that they also, who are reproved, may be made manifest among you.’ (1Cor11:19) OR “And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fall.” (Mt5:18; Lk16:17) But Luther said, “sin boldly” and so Protestants do; without out the sacraments of Eucharist or Penance? And Yet they are saved? And a Catholic knows and professes his salvation must persevere to the end, taking his daily bread and repenting of his sin! This is the logic and reason of God? Who said, “”Amen I say to you, whatsoever you shall bind upon earth, shall be bound also in heaven; and whatsoever you shall loose upon earth, shall be loosed also in heaven.” (Mt18:18) This is the rules of our Church, but yet these heathens have a different set of rules, than God’s plain meaning?
We have, therefore, deemed it our duty to make a strong, vigorous, and uncompromising presentation of the great and fundamental truth, the very fence and barrier of the true religion, “OUT OF THE CHURCH THERE IS POSITIVELY NO SALVATION,” against those soft, weak, timid, liberalizing Catholics who labor to explain away all the points of Catholic faith offensive to non-Catholics, and to make it appear that there is no question of life and death, of heaven and hell, involved in the differences between us and Protestants.
Not to free your neighbor from religious errors, says Pope Leo, when it is in your power to do so, is to show to be in error yourself, and “therefore,” says Pope Gregory, “he whose duty it is to correct his neighbor when he is in fault, and yet omits to make the correction, makes himself guilty of the faults of his neighbor.” “Indeed,” says Pope Innocent III, of those whose duty it is to keep the deposit of faith pure and undefiled,
