The Roman Catholic Church says...
“A power of forgiving sins should exist in the Church. To her were entrusted the keys of the kingdom of heaven, by which each one, if penitent, may obtain the remision of his sins.”
–Council of Trent, Part I, Chapter IX, Paragraph 4.
Agreeing Popes say...
“For those who do not belong to the visible body of the Church ...none can be asured of eternal salvation, because ...they are still deprived of the helps and heavenly favors found only inside the Roman Catholic Church.”
–Pope Pio XII
“Society is sick ...the one hope, the one remedy, is the Pope.”
–Pope Pius X.
Disagreeing Pope says...
“Our message must be Salvation in Jesus Christ. People need Jesus Christ. He is their Savior. We must proclaim His truth. His love. His justice and His Salvation“
–Pope John Paul I.
Leader of the Roman Catholic Church says...
“Salvation for the Catholic ...does not come through personally receiving Christ as Savior but ...is a lengthy process through the seven sacraments like; penance, good works, suffering for one's sins and the sins of others here and/or in purgatory, and endless masses and Rosaries said on one's behalf even after one's death.”
–Fr. Priest Tom Forrest, Head of
"Evangelization 2000 Out of the Vatican.
The Bible says...
“There is no salvation through anyone else, nor is there another name under Heaven given among men to the human race by which we are to be saved but Jesus Christ.”
–Peter, Acts 4:10-12
“Looking (only) to Jesus, the (only) author and (only) finisher of our faith”
“Who but God alone can forgive sins...?”
“I'm the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
–Jesus, John 14:6
“For there is one God. There is also one mediator between God and Men, the man Christ Jesus”
–Paul, 1 Timothy 2:5 12:2
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord”
–Paul, Roman 6:23
“Whosoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whosoever disobeys (believes not) the Son, will not see life but the wrath of God remains on him”
Do you believe...
...that if the sacrifice of Christ for our salvation is perfect, we need someone else to intervene?
...that there is a Bible verse that indicates that we need something more than our faith in Christ to be saved for all eternity?
... that we should put our eyes on someone else other than Christ in order to obtain salvation?
... that Christ gave the Roman Catholic Church the power and the authority to save?
