The worse [sic] stuff Christianity did was hundreds of years agoCHRISTIANITY NEVER DID ANYTHING OF THE SORT. THE INQUISITION WAS NOT THE DOING OF CHRISTIANITY. TRUE CHRISTIANS WERE PERSECUTED BY THE INQUISITION ALONG WITH THE JEWS AND EVERYBODY ELSE THE ROMAN CHURCH DECIDED DESERVED PERSECUTION, AND IT WAS CHRISTIANS WHO WERE PERSECUTED IN THE GREATEST NUMBERS TOO.
Foxe's Book of Martyrs documents the enormities committed BY THE ROMAN CHURCH AGAINST CHRISTIANS.
The Reformation leaders recognized that the Papacy is the ANTICHRIST. Some Protestants and evangelicals today have either forgotten this or never agreed with it. BIG MISTAKE. The Roman Church has not changed. The Papacy is STILL the biggest Antichrist on the planet, and may very well produce THE Antichrist prophesied in scripture for the end times, at the very least the False Prophet. It has supported local pagan religions for a half century now too instead of calling for a pure Christian testimony among the peoples it has spiritually enslaved, Haiti being a tragic case in point.
This does not mean that all Catholics are false Christians since the gospel is preserved in the Catholic liturgy. What it does mean is that they should seek to find out whether they are truly saved or not, learn more about their history and GET OUT OF THAT FALSE INSTITUTION they grew up in -- or were deceived enough to join. This ex-Catholic priest, Richard Bennett, is a very good source of information about all this. Here's one of his specifically describing his conversion from Catholicism. There are also other good talks on this subject at Sermon Audio. Just pull up "Antichrist" and "Catholicism" on the Sermon Topics page.
The very trappings of the Roman Church (shared in great part by the Eastern Orthodox churches as well) ought to be a clue to its falseness. The expensive Roman trappings, the preservation of the Roman pagan religious symbolism, the enormous wealth of the Vatican, the luxurious life lived by the leadership, the rich robes, the headdress that harks back to the fish god Dagon described in scripture. Alexander Hislop exposed the pagan roots of Catholicism over a century ago, as I reported in a few posts here some time ago.
Scripture says: COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE!
