Fact-filled and easy-to-understand, this book delivers the
essential knowledge you need to know to effectively witness biblical truths to
people led astray by the false teachings of Roman Catholicism. Ron Rhodes
examines Roman Catholicism in comparison to Godís Word and suggests ten topics
of conversation when witnessing to Catholics:
The apocryphal books are helpful historically but they do
not belong in the Bible.
The Bible alone is authoritative, not tradition.
Peter was a great apostle, but he was not the first pope.
The pope, the bishops, and the magisterium are fallible.
Mary was the mother of Jesus, nothing more.
Justification is instantaneous, once-for-all, and
entirely by grace.
The sacrament of the mass does not appease God.
The sacrament of penance does not absolve sins.
There is no purgatory, nor is it needed.
Jesus has changed my life forever.
Rhodes highlights the key differences between Roman
Catholicism and biblical Christianity by:
Identifying the 10 most critical problems
Examining the exact nature of each doctrinal error
Contrasting cultic teachings with the truth found in Godí
Explaining the correct meanings of Bible verses cults
cite out of context
Reviewing basic principles of Bible interpretation that
ensure accurate understanding
The Gospel of salvation by Godís grace through faith in Jesus
Christ alone is radically different from the gospel Roman Catholics have been
taught. They have been told by their church that salvation comes through
participating in its sacraments, by obeying the Ten Commandments and following
the church rules. Claiming that its tradition and its interpretation of the
Scriptures are supreme over the Bible itself, the Roman Catholic Church departs
from historical Christianity.
In this brief, yet thorough discussion of the Roman
Catholicism's teachings, you'll discover the tools you need to effectively talk
to Catholic's about their faith and guide them to the good news of God's free
grace through Jesus Christ. Concise, detailed information will help you
understand their view of the Bible, the role of Mary and the Church hierarchy,
justification by works, and more.
This book provides important points, witnessing tips,
digging deeper sections, and cautions that highlight the confusing arguments and
tactics used by Roman Catholicism, making it perfect for individual witnessing,
Bible studies, youth groups, and evangelism refreshers.
This little book is a valuable resource for evangelicals
wishing to learn about what Roman Catholicism teaches without having to read a
large scholarly work. It is also good for Catholics who wish to learn more about
the Gospel of grace.
