Rome's Apostasy Redux

I found this excellent piece entitled "Apostasy Is Changing The Face
Of Roman Catholicism"
over at Mike Gendron's Proclaiming the Gospel website.

Below is a snippet of Mike's bio:

Proclaiming The Gospel Ministries was established in 1991 to serve and glorify the Lord Jesus Christ by proclaiming His death and resurrection as God's only provision whereby sinners can be forgiven, redeemed and justified. Jesus Christ satisfied the righteous justice of God by paying the eternal punishment for sin when he died as man's substitute. Any person who repents and receives Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior by grace through faith, ceasing to trust in anyone or anything else for salvation, becomes a child of God and receives the gift of eternal life which can never be revoked. Since there are many who proclaim another Jesus and another gospel, we are called to expose spiritual deception so that people will not be deceived about life's most critical question - "What must I do to be saved?"

As a Roman Catholic for over 30 years, I was taught from the Catechism that salvation was by faith plus baptism, the sacraments, good works, law keeping, the sacrifice of the Mass, indulgences, purgatory and penance. According to God's word this is another gospel that leaves Catholics with a false hope. Only when Catholics trust the Lord Jesus Christ as their all-sufficient savior will they know they are saved completely and forever!

There is no doubt that the one world harlot church is alive and well and is even now positioning herself to ride upon the back of the beast of Revelation!
