hey guys..I made this thread to warn Catholics out there like me..
lumaki ako na ang relihiyon ko ay Roman Catholic..isang araw bigla ko na lang nakita sa internet yung mga false teachings ng Catholicism...i don't know who wrote those article but one thing is for sure... they said that some of the teachings in Roman Catholic Church are false and contradicting in the Bible..I know that internet is not reliable source but I believe them because they support their explanation with Bible verses...dati akala ko Catholic lang ang tama...pero ngayon alam ko na kung bakit may ibang religion like Protestant or Born Again...because some of the teachings in Catholic are absurd or nonsense thus veering away from the very meaning of the texts written in the Bible...you could search in the internet the false doctrines of Catholicism..and you will know how blasphemous and idolatrous Catholics are (sorry to say)...so i encourage you to read and study the Bible because it will be our defense (together with our faith to God) against the false...sa Bible pa lang winarningan na tayo ni Lord sa mga false teachings...read the following:
"See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ." -Colossians 2:8
"Do not be carried about with various and strange doctrines. For it is good that the heart be established by grace, not with foods which have not profited those who have been occupied with them." - Hebrews 13:9
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth , and be turned aside to fables." - 2 Timothy 4:3,4
"'But in vain do they worship Me, teaching the doctrines the precepts of men.' "Neglecting the commandment of God, you hold to the tradition of men." He was also saying to them, "You are experts at setting aside the commandment of God in order to keep your tradition." Mark 7:7-9
i would rather be a Protestant who rely on Bible only rather to follow Roman Catholic which is based on Bible and tradition(which we do not know its history thus we do not know if all doctrines are true)
