DEBUNKING
ROMAN CATHOLICISM

A Counterfeit to Christianity

Debunk
To expose as false

Roman Catholicism
IS NOT Christianity

“That’s your opinion!”

“You have your beliefs
and I have mine.”

“Yeah, but…”

Will your opinions and your beliefs concerning the truth matter when you are standing face to face with the Lord Jesus Christ at a future time?

Arrogance is not teachable

PSA 119:21
You (God) rebuke the arrogant
(the religious ones), the cursed, who wander from Your commandments (bible doctrines).

2TH 2:10
…and (Satan will influence) with all the deception (and delusion) of wickedness (cosmic thinking) for those who perish (who are totally destroyed), because they did not receive (embrace) the love of the truth (during their lifetimes)
so as to be saved.

Religion is one of Satan’s
tactical systems of thought and
is designed to deceive you into thinking you are saved when you are not, and to thinking that you have the truth when you do not.

Delusion
A FIXED false belief

Only you can change your mind

MAR 14:60-61
The high priest stood up and came forward and questioned Jesus, saying, “Do You not answer? What is it that these men are testifying against You?” But He kept silent and did not answer. Again the high priest was questioning Him, and saying to Him, “Are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?”

MAR 14:62-63
And Jesus said, “I am; and you shall see THE SON OF MAN SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF POWER, and COMING WITH THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN.” Tearing his clothes, the high priest said, “What further need do we have of witnesses?

MAR 14:64-65
“You have heard the blasphemy; how does it seem to you?” And they all condemned Him to be deserving of death. Some began to spit at Him, and to blindfold Him, and to beat Him with their fists, and to say to Him, “Prophesy!” And the officers received Him with slaps in the face.

One who is gullible…
one who is easily deceived

MAT 7:21
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who
is in heaven will enter.

MAT 7:22
“Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’”

MAT 7:23
“And then I will declare to them,
‘I never knew you;
DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’”

GAL 1:13-14
For you have heard of my former manner of life in Judaism, how I used to persecute the church of God beyond measure and tried to destroy it; and I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries among my countrymen, being more extremely zealous for my ancestral traditions.

Who is my God?

What is my source of truth?

Who is my lifelong companion?

What are the things I
need to know to debunk
Roman Catholicism?

PRINCPLE 1
If you don’t know the truth of bible doctrine, you will be deceived by the lies of Roman Catholicism.

PRINCIPLE 2
If you don’t have a specific way to inspect the doctrines of Roman Catholicism, you will be deceived by the lies of Roman Catholicism.

JOH 20:31
…but these (details of the miracles of the Lord Jesus Christ) have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.

PRINCIPLE 3
If you don’t put bible doctrines side by side with Roman Catholic doctrines, you have NO CHANCE to see the deception of
Roman Catholicism.

PRINCIPLE 4
To prove that Roman Catholicism is a lie, you only need to find one lie in Roman Catholicism. That makes Roman Catholicism
easy to debunk.

GAL 5:9
A little leaven (legalism or religion) leavens the whole lump of dough (the whole local church).

Leaven
In baking, a substance that produces an altering influence on the whole batter.

PRINCIPLE 5
Roman Catholicism isn’t
worth studying, so don’t get fascinated with it or spend too much of your time studying it.
Roman Catholicism is only worth INSPECTING, and very briefly, to debunk its falseness.

TIT 3:9
But avoid foolish controversies
and genealogies and strife and disputes about the Law, for they are unprofitable and worthless.

PRINCIPLE 6
Five questions help you inspect and debunk any religion, especially Roman Catholicism

DEBUNK QUESTION 1
Who do the doctrines of
Roman Catholicism say
the Lord Jesus Christ is?

DEBUNK QUESTION 2
What is Roman Catholicism’s source of truth?

DEBUNK QUESTION 3
What do the doctrines of Roman Catholicism suggest concerning how a person is to be saved
(the gospel message)?

DEBUNK QUESTION 4
What do the doctrines of the religion say about the relationship between God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit?

DEBUNK QUESTION 5
What does the religion say about God’s policy toward mankind?

PRINCIPLE 7
As with most religions,
Roman Catholicism is a brilliant deception and a “trick bag” for Catholics, because they are bound by two sources of truth that contradict each other.

ISA 14:14
‘I will make myself
like the Most High.”

Counterfeit
An imitation, fraudulently
passing itself off as genuine

JOH 10:28
…and I (the Lord Jesus Christ) give eternal life to them (believers in Christ), and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand (they cannot lose their salvation).

PRO 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.

DEU 31:8
“The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”

ISA 30:18
Therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; How blessed are all those who long for Him.

1PE 5:6-7
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.

JUD 1:24-25
Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
