Jorge Bergoglio, also known as ‘Pope Francis’, led Roman Catholics on Tuesday in the observance of the feast day called “The Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God,” during which he expressed the hope that Mary would “protect” the people for the new year, and claimed that in times of trouble, men should not only “lift…

      1. The Catholicism being practiced today, by many, is not true Catholicism. Traditional Catholicism can only be found in a small number of Latin Mass chapels and independent Churches. Rome is in full apostasy, and is no longer Catholic. They have broke with tradition.

    1. You Protestants have some big problems if you cannot see the difference between Veneration and Adoration. Your understanding is so one dimensional. Because you have a limited view of Divine Revelation; only accepting scripture without tradition. Take a look at your Bible which says, ” Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you keep away from any brother who is living in idleness and not in accord with the tradition that you received from us.”(2 Thes. 3:6) and also, ” So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter.”(2 Thes 2:15, RSV)

      1. Your use of 2 Thess 3:6 and 2 Thessalonians 2:15 is invalid; you still need to show Papists present doctrines are Apostolic in origin. It’s amazing your caricature of my position.

      2. SLIMJIM, I was just correcting a false representation one of your sisters had made. I am no fan of the current Pope, but every Catholic I know does not consider the honoring of the Mother of God as worship.

      3. There are three theological terms that denote honor, veneration, and adoration. They are “dulia”, “hyper-dulia”, and “latria.” Dulia is the honor given to the Saints; hyper-dulia is that veneration reserved for the Blessed Virgin Mary; and latria is the adoration Catholics reserve for the the “worship” of God alone(Father, Son, Holy Spirit) True worship involves sacrifice; ie. the Mass.

      4. I know this is someone else’s blog and I don’t want to have an all out comment battle on someone else’s place and this would be my last comment for now and I’ll let you let the last say.
        1.) Where do we see in the Bible this teaching that worship is distinguished from veneration with the distinction of whether sacrifices or Mass takes place?
        2.) Also do we still implement sacrifices today towards God in a way that’s distinct from dulia/hyper-dulia?
        3.) What distinguishes dulia and hyper-dulia practically?
        4.) Also do we see in Scripture the distinction between dulia and hyper-dulia and does Scripture teaches what makes these two distinct?

      5. SLIMJIM,
        The short answer is the Church. Or more precisely the magisterium or teaching office of the Church. See 1 Timothy 3:15, “so that, if I am delayed, you will know how each one must conduct himself in God’s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth.”

      6. SLIMJIM,
        The reference you are looking for is found in Matthew 16:19, “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”as well as in the OT. “And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.”(Isaiah 22:22) this passage provides the foundation of this doctrine. Peter, and his successors, are given a charism of truth whereby, when push comes to shove, they are empowered by the Holy Spirit to identify the truth about Jesus. Otherwise, the truth would be up for grabs.

  1. Isn’t interesting Crissy that the Catholic guy here thinks Rome apostated…but he’s like the Opus Dei kind of Catholic and still is arguing for Romanism?
