The Catholic Deception
(Beware of spiritual food poisoning in the Catholic religious cult!)
By David J. Stewart | May 2019
1st John 4:1,
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits
whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”
There is not a more damnable organization on the face of the earth than Roman and Orthodox Catholicism. Orthodox Catholicism is headquartered in Moscow, Russia. Roman Catholicism is headquartered in Vatican City, Rome. Both groups of this popular world false religion are of the Devil!
I watched a very well-known 1993 movie called, “The Visual Bible: Matthew,” starring an American actor named Bruce Marchiano (born 1956), who played Jesus in the film. I think Bruce did a fabulous job in the movie, and he seems like a nice man. Here is Bruce giving his testimony on YouTube. And here is Bruce's ministry website. I cannot argue that Mr. Marchiano is a gifted actor, seems like a splendid fella, and I admire that he is ministering to the poor children in South Africa, using his fame to be a DOER and not just a HEARER of the Word.
Albeit, I viewed all of the preceding videos and websites, trying (testing) the spirit as the Holy Bible commands us in 1st John 4:1. Unfortunately, I see a BIG PROBLEM with all of this in light of the Word of God, and that is a woeful tolerance for the Roman Catholic cult! Bruce in his public comments states that his mother was a devout Catholic, and he was raised in a devout Catholic home, but it ends there! I do not know if Mr. Marchiano is truly a born-again Christian, because his testimony is so vague, shallow and lame that I cannot discern if he is really saved. The way Bruce speaks highly of his Catholic upbringing has caused unsaved Catholics to love and embrace him as their buddy. 2nd Timothy 3:12, “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.”
In fairness to Bruce, he states:
“It came along later in life - I was raised Catholic - and like a vast majority of Catholic, you're aware of God in your life but not truly aware. In my early 30s I was born again and realized the difference between trying to be a good guy and having a living relationship with Jesus. It was probably a year or two after that that I was asked to play Jesus.”
At a glance it appears that Bruce may be a true Christian, since he mentions being “BORN AGAIN,” yet there is an obvious reluctance from Bruce to speak evil about the damned Catholic church. Bruce's pastor is Dr. Jack Hayford, an 84-year-old Pentecostal preacher in Los Angeles, California (a protégé of Oral Roberts). I didn't write this article to criticize Bruce Marchiano, nor to determine whether he is saved or not (I don't know); but rather, to raise awareness among my readers to the Satanic nature of Roman Catholicism—a counterfeit religion!
And also, I want to impress upon your heart dear reader, if you are a true Christian, of your duty in Christ to reject and refute Roman Catholicism! Ephesians 5:11, “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” The Catholic church and everything they stand for is a work of darkness!!!
Catholicism is of the Devil
It is as simple as this—Catholicism requires keeping Seven Sacraments to be saved through the Catholic Church, the first step of which they claim is water baptism. This is NOT the simplicity that is in Christ, which is THE GOSPEL. Roman Catholicism has ANOTHER GOSPEL, ANOTHER JESUS, and ANOTHER SPIRIT! The fake Jesus of Catholicism reverences his mother, and she has influence over Him in Heaven, so that Catholics are taught to pray to Mary, so that she will compel her son to do what you want. That is a doctrine of devils! Mary was a filthy sinner just like you, and me, and everybody else (Romans 3:23). Mary died because she was a dirty sinner, like we all die (Romans 5:12; Hebrews 9:27).
Also, Mary was not born of a virgin (which Catholics call “The Immaculate Conception of Mary”), she was born normally, having BOTH an earthly mother and an earthly father. ONLY Jesus, God's only begotten Son, was born of a miraculous virgin birth (Matthew 1:23). Also, Mary did not remain a virgin (which Catholics call “The Perpetual Virginity Of Mary”), she had at least six more children, by normal birth (Matthew 13:55-56). Mary was not caught up into Heaven either. The Vatican made this official Catholic dogma in 1950, which they call “The Assumption Of Mary.” The truth is that Mary died and her corrupt mortal body was buried, but her soul went to Heaven, because she received Jesus as her Savior! The main teachings of the Catholic religion are doctrines of devils!!!
And you should never call her “Mother Mary,” because that term is of pagan origin within the Roman Catholic religion. Many Catholics, especially in more superstitious Latino cultures, call Mary the, “QUEEN OF HEAVEN,” which is Satanic! The Holy Bible calls it the sin of idolatry. Jeremiah 7:18, “The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.” Some Catholics even go as far as to call Mary their “CO-REDEMPTRIX” (OR, CO-REDEEMER). Have you been deceived? In sharp contrast to the foolishness of Catholicism, the Word of God teaches that Jesus Christ alone is the ONE AND ONLY MEDIATOR! ...
1st Timothy 2:5, “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”
Here is a classic example of the errors of Catholicism. At the Catholic.com website they state:
Or, how about Matthew 12:36-37? Here, Jesus says:
I tell you, on the day of judgment men will render account for every careless word they utter; for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.
That sounds like there is more to this justification thing than faith alone. [emphasis added]
More to justification than faith alone? That is blasphemy! I just quoted to you Ephesians 2:8-9 which forbids works for salvation! As you can see for yourself, Catholics go against the plain teaching of the Holy Scriptures! I know that anyone who adds works to faith is not saved, because faith is not really faith if it includes works (Hebrews 11:6).
I tell you truthfully—every Christian, pastor, preacher, evangelist and Bible teacher ought to refute, expose and criticize Catholicism—a deadly prisonhouse of Satanic religion that is damning over a billion souls to Hell forever!!! Shame on any Christian celebrity like Bruce Marchiano, who serves mammon (money) rather than God. Luke 16:13, “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” If Bruce took a stand against Roman Catholicism, he'd lose the support and donations of millions of religious people! Every born-again believer has a duty to tell THE TRUTH, otherwise our Gospel is hid and they cannot be saved.
SEPARATION FROM CULTS | SEPARATION FROM FALSE DOCTRINE (MP3's by Pastor Jeff Owens)
Kindly, Bruce's vague movies and shallow message that, “GOD LOVES YOU,” is not the Gospel truth that saves. Take a look at Bruce's website, there is no mention whatsoever of “HOW TO BE SAVED.” He foolishly says that his ministry's mission is “sharing the love of Jesus.” Really? Why not share the Gospel with your millions of web visitors? I'll tell you why, because Bruce's career means more to him than getting people saved! Nobody gets offended by a vague message of love, love, love! But my friend, you don't really love somebody unless you tell them THE TRUTH. I love Catholic people, which is why I am boldly telling you without hesitation that the Catholic church will take you to Hell with them! The Pope is a dope and he has no hope! Why is the Pope a dope? Simply because he elevates the manmade teachings of Roman Catholicism over the commandments of God in the Holy Bible. ...
Mark 7:7-9, “Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.”
I tell you truthfully that ecumenism is an enemy of soulwinning! Bruce's shallow message cannot get anybody saved. Catholics look to Jesus, just as Bruce says, but they are going to Hell. Why? Simply because they add works to faith (Ephesians 2:8-9). Bruce alludes to having more than just an awareness of Jesus, but going further in a personal relationship. My friend, Judas had a very close “relationship” with Jesus and still went to Hell. I just don't like all the vague, lame and shallowness of Bruce's website, ministry and public appearances. You don't get saved by pursuing a “relationship” with Christ. YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN! No one has ever been born-again by following the errant teachings of the Pope and priests in the Catholic church! NO ONE!!! The Pope is a wicked man, a liar, a false prophet, the servant of Satan, a Gospel pervert, the Vicar of Hell!!! If that offends you, then you need to get saved!!!
Clearly Bruce is afraid to offend fans, which is a hindrance to people getting saved. 2nd Corinthians 11:3-4, “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” Bruce needs to be a lot more specific of how to be saved, because praying to Jesus is not the Gospel. Most of the people who think they are going to heaven, aren't. Luke 13:23-34, “Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.”
Bruce is not clear on the Gospel, and I dare say anyone is getting saved by his ecumenical message of just loving Jesus. We must present the GOOD NEWS clearly, or else lost sinners cannot get saved! ...
“There is power in this Gospel message. Most people just don't know how to
present it... The clarity of the Gospel is what makes it easy for them to believe.”
—Pastor Yankee Arnold, a quote from the excellent MP3 sermon titled, “WHY GRACE CAN SAVE THE WORST MAN!”
Jesus Does Not Love Women More Than Men
Here is an interview of Bruce on Full Circle, in which he explains why he wrote his book titled, “Jesus: The Man Who Loved Women.” That title and message is very misleading, because Jesus loved men and women equally. I don't like Bruce's message in his book, because Jesus loved the men He ministered to just as much as the women. In the preceding interview Bruce blames men for 99% of the world's problems (that is the exact percentage that he gives). WHAT NONSENSE! Boy is he kissing up to his female fans!!! He says that men start wars, not women. What? May I remind you that every warmonger was RAISED BY A WOMAN!!! Women raise spoiled brats. Nearly every bloodthirsty man was raised by parents who didn't teach him properly. So don't tell me that men are worse than women.
The truth is that women often sin in different ways than men, but they are just as ungodly and probe to rebellion. Women sin every time they dress immodestly, desiring the wrong kind of attention, causing men to lust. That is not a sin that men are prone to. But men are prone to the sin of lust, more than women. They are equally sinful. Jesus did not love women more than men, or esteem them as being less troublesome than men. Throughout the Bible we find Christ showing compassion for all people, male and female alike. Jesus had a special and unique relationship with all of His disciples and friends, men and women alike.
It bothers me in the preceding FULL CIRCLE interview, that the four woman sitting around Bruce, are all dressed in tight pants, rough and looking worldly, and he is claiming that Jesus loves all women, failing to mention that “God is angry with the wicked every day” (Psalms 7:11). It is true that Jesus loves everybody, and every woman too; but it is also true that God is angry at Christ-rejecting and wicked women! Bruce simply says that Jesus loves everybody, end of story, but if you are unsaved or out of God's will living in sin as a believer, then God is just as angry at you as He loves you! Bruce's message is ecumenical, shallow, misleading, and of the Devil for leaving off the judgment of God. If you listen to the reprobate ungodly world, whenever anyone dies, they always say their loved one went to Heaven. That is simply NOT TRUE! If you “die in your sins” (John 8:24), you go straight to literally burn in Hell forever!
I don't think Bruce Marchiano should portray our holy Savior as a ladies man! Jesus was a friend to all men, for whom He gave His life and died. The Lord is not a respecter of persons!
Evangelist Billy Graham Pulled On the Same Rope As the Devil
Respectfully, Bruce also says that his mother watched Evangelist Billy Graham regularly, a modern-day Balaam (a prophet for hire), who did more to diminish and blur the lines of distinction and separation between Roman Catholicism and true Bible Christianity than perhaps any other minister. Billy Graham epitomized the MINISTER OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS. 2nd Corinthians 11:13-15, “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” Wow! The Bible warns us about false apostles and deceitful workers.
Carefully notice that they transform “THEMSELVES,” not transformed by the Holy Spirit of God. John 1:12-13, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” I do not believe that Billy Graham was a true Christian; but rather, a clever con artist who exploited and manipulated Christianity for his own personal gain. There is something very sinister about Mr. Graham, who closely associated with U.S. Presidents who were known pedophiles, homosexuals and occult members.
Billy Graham has denied Christ in so many ways throughout his apostate ministry, and his unified global religion. In the 1950's Mr. Graham embraced Roman Catholicism as an acceptable form of Christianity, when in reality it is a COUNTERFEIT form of Christianity. Billy did more damage than any other human being to yoke together believers with unbelievers! This is Babylonian idolatry!!!
Billy Graham's Apostasy: The Broad Road To Hell
Billy Graham was an emissary for the Vatican, an enemy of the cross! Billy sold out for filthy lucre, making the Pope his king instead of Jesus. Mr. Graham's love affair with the Roman Catholic religion makes him a friend of the Devil. All roads don't lead to Heaven!
Sir Billy Graham?
Billy Graham Sellout Honored By The British Throne
Knowledgeable observers weren't a bit surprised when Billy Graham was knighted in 2001 by the British royal family, for Dr. Graham long ago slipped into the service of the Beast of Babylon.
After the announcement of his impending retirement and turning the reigns of his million dollar media empire to his son Franklin Graham, Billy Graham continues as a beloved figure in the eyes of millions of deceived Christians. While most "Christians" are outraged to hear their religious idol soundly criticized, the plain truth is Dr. Graham has long since departed from Scriptural imperatives requiring he tell the truth about the enormous apostasy that is now enveloping the entire world.
From his blanket endorsement of the False Prophet, Pope John Paul II, to his more recent heretical statements that betray his true spiritual agenda, Dr. Billy Graham is the singular most influential false prophet in America. Fortunately, a new book finally details his tremendous deception in astonishing detail.
Billy Graham and His Friends: A Hidden Agenda? is the latest work from Dr. Cathy Burns, an expert on Freemasonry and other branches of occult secret societies. An astonishing 788 pages, Billy Graham and His Friends is supported by a staggering 4,400 footnotes! Among other things, the book documents how Billy Graham has embraced:
* Occultists of every variety
* New World Order Architects and Proponents
* Apostate “Christian” Religionists
* The Vatican
* Liberal Theology
* New Age Bible Versions
* The United Nations Globalist Agenda
* The Council Of Foreign Relations
* And Much, Much More
While "fans" of Dr. Graham routinely refuse to recognize the enormous spiritual deception that is personified by this man, the proof is documented in the book. For example, during an interview with Fox News on January 2nd, 2000, interviewer Tony Snow asked Billy Graham "When you get to Heaven, who's going to speak first, you or God?" Graham replied: "When I get there, I'm sure that Jesus is going to say that he will welcome me. But I think that he's going to say: 'Well done, our good and faithful servant.' Or he may say: 'You're in the wrong place.'"
In fact, in this same interview, Graham claimed he couldn’t state categorically his guarantee of salvation because he claimed "I’m not Mother Theresa!" This is simply an outrageous admission, for Mother Theresa was not even saved as a Christian. She was on record as categorically stating there were other ways to heaven besides salvation through Jesus Christ. This is simply blasphemous, unbiblical doctrine that is drawn from the well of the False Prophet.
Yet in internationally televised crusades for the "other" gospel that Billy Graham presents, Graham routinely assures his gullible public that his brand of evangelism will guarantee their arrival in glory with the Lord. There is much more.
Graham's soft stance on communism has been extensively covered up in the West. The truth is, Billy has followed the World Council of Churches' lead into world communism. For example, back in 1973, Graham was interviewed in a Tokyo newspaper entitled the Mainichi Daily News.
In that May 28, 1973 edition, he declared "I think communism's appeal to youth is its structure and promise of a future utopia. Mao Tse-Tung's eight precepts are basically the same as the Ten Commandments. In fact, if we can't have the Ten Commandments read in our schools, I'll settle for Mao's precepts."
Many people already know that Graham has completely embraced the Catholic Pope, John Paul II, as a great Christian leader and his nomination for "the man of the century." The truth is this same Pope is not even saved, as he has blasphemed the truth of the Gospel by embracing every religious heresy from Kali the Hindu death goddess to the voodoo worshipers of Benin, West Africa.
Because the False Prophet described in the book of Revelation embraces and leads the world to the following of the Antichrist, anyone that validates the False Prophet is just another false prophet. Dr. Billy Graham has plainly demonstrated his true spiritual character with his ecumenical agenda. That powerful, and largely hidden agenda is carefully documented for anyone that cares enough about the truth to seek it out. The notes here don't even scratch the surface of the truth concerning Billy Graham. A massive amount of documented detail concerning Dr. Graham's true spiritual agenda is found in the new book Billy Graham And His Friends - A Hidden Agenda? by Dr. Cathy Burns. While Graham defenders are outraged at any criticism of the beloved figure, the massive work completely outclasses all Graham proponents with truth.
What saith the Scripture? Luke 6:26, “Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.” Ravi Zacharias is loved around the world, by Catholics and Mormons and apostate Christians alike. Ravi is so shallow that a ground hog lives under him! I've never heard a minister who could say so much while saying so little! Ravi Zacharias has been invited to over 55 countries, Billy Graham was invited into 185 countries, but Pastor Steven Anderson has been banned from 32 countries! John 15:19, “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” The ungodly world loves Ravi Zacharias and Billy Graham, because they are apostates! Kindly, Harvest Baptist Church on Guam honored Ravi Zacharias in 2017, who is BILLY GRAHAM JUNIOR!!!
Ecumenism is the sworn enemy of the New Testament Church! When Daniel 8:25b says that the coming Antichrist, “by peace shall destroy many,” that definitely includes the ecumenical movement, which creeps into churches and destroys THE TRUTH! The true New Testament church is comprised of local churches, who have a Biblical duty (2nd Corinthians 6:14-17) to separate from all forms of doctrinal corruption, false prophets, ungodly organizations, worldliness and evil.
Here is a series of awesome MP3 sermons by Pastor Jeff Owens concerning Biblical separation, which is woefully dying in the churches today:
I do not claim to be a good Christian. I want to please God, and I believe God is pleased with my stand for the truth, even though I struggle each day to live right (as did Paul, Romans 7:14-25). My prayer is for God to use my life for His purpose and glory. These are “perilous times” (2nd Timothy 3:12), and ironically some of the very local churches who speak of these “perilous times” are contributing to making them perilous—by promoting counterfeit Bible versions, promoting false doctrines, promoting false prophets, and making light of THE TRUTH! Deception is everywhere, the biggest of which is the Roman Catholic religion! Who cares? I CARE!!!
2nd Corinthians 6:14-17, “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.”
Bruce Marchiano's shallow ministry message of “Jesus loves everybody” is not getting anybody saved! Proof of what I say is that he is so popular with hellbound Roman Catholics! I fully agree with Bruce that we should all forsake complicated denominationalism and simply humble ourselves as little children before God. However, that can only happen if we SUBMIT TO GOD'S RIGHTEOUSNESS THROUGH FAITH ALONE IN JESUS CHRIST! That means the Roman Catholic Church is going to Hell!!! I suspect that Bruce is avoiding making enemies among Catholics, thinking that if he offends them then they won't listen to anything else he says either. The truth is that only Christ-rejecting wicked sinners are going to become offended. Matthew 11:6, “And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.” If new evangelicals must water-down their message to avoid OFFENDING pseudo-Christian cults, then they are not truly reaching lost sinners with the Gospel; but rather, giving them false assurance in their damnation!
A demon's favorite activity is to make a religious person feel comfortable in their false religion. Satan's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born again! That is exactly what happened to the religious people in Matthew 7:21-23—they had lived the Christian life, doing “many wonderful works” in Jesus' name—but they had never submitted themselves to God's righteousness through faith alone in Christ. Romans 10:3-4, “For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.” Believing on Jesus Christ is all that is required of you to have eternal life, Who is the end of the Law!
The Light of the New Testament Church Must Shine
I did not write this article to criticize Bruce Marchiano. I sincerely do admire the guy. And I really love his role as Jesus in his films. My problem is that there are over one billion unsaved Roman Catholics in this world, and MILLIONS of them idolize Bruce Marchiano for starring as their favorite Bible character. Bruce admits that he is not a theologian, and I get that, but it doesn't require a degree from a theological seminary to see that the Catholic Church is of the Devil. Catholics teach and require keeping Seven Sacraments to get to Heaven, which is totally unbiblical. The word “sacrament” is not even found in the Word of God. What saith the Scripture? Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
If we don't let the light of the Gospel shine unto the world, then they won't see it, and cannot get saved. I know Bruce is not a theologian (in his own words; and that is okay), but for a guy with a ministry he is influencing millions of people, so he should at least give a clear Gospel presentation. Bruce's shallow plan of salvation appeals to unsaved Catholics, which means something is wrong with it! If the Gospel is presented properly, it will offend Roman Catholics, because it WILL EXCLUDE their damnable plan of works for salvation!!! I am sick and tired of career Christians—who make a living from singing or ministering—but the Gospel is hidden! I triple-dog dare you to show me even one mainstream Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) artist who gives a clear presentation of the Gospel on their ministry website. You cannot!!! Obviously they don't really care if their fans gets saved or not. The CCM industry rakes in over ONE BILLION dollars each year! Truly the love of money is the root of all evil.
I have made my point. Please do not allow the fraud of Roman Catholicism to take you to Hell. All the Popes are burning in Hell this moment. Tens of thousands of former Catholic priests are now burning in the fires of Hell, having died in their sins without Christ. Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith. God will not save anyone who is trying to be saved, He will only save those who are trusting to be saved. Religion is man trying to reach God through human effort, but Christianity is God trying to reach man by the sacrifice of His only begotten Son on the cross. If you are a truly born-again Christian, then don't you dare show any support for the Satanic Catholic religion! You ought to criticize it, refuting it for what it is, of the Devil.
“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false
teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies...” —2nd Peter 2:1
