The Lord Jesus Christ is personally All Holy; yet, as the substitute for the believer's sin, He rendered Himself legally responsible to the wrath of God. The consequence of Christ's faithfulness in all that He did, culminating in His death on the cross, is that His righteousness is credited to the believer. It was God who legally constituted Christ to be "sin for us." He was "made sin" because the sins of His people were transferred to Him, and in like manner, the believer is made "the righteousness of God in Him" by God crediting to the believer Christ's faithfulness to the precepts of the law. Quite clearly, therefore, justification is a judicial and gracious act of God whereby a believing sinner has legal right standing in Christ. Without this perfect righteousness of Christ Jesus being credited to you, you remain spiritually "dead in trespasses and sins" (Ephesians 2:1). This Gospel of Christ Jesus is explained in most of our articles and presentations.
With great sensitivity I write on this question. Because I remember the grip that Catholicism had on my own soul for 48 years I write with affection for Catholics. Yet while I analyze official Catholic teachings in the light of biblical faith an irrefutable conclusion is reached. Catholics who read this article may indeed be thankful that I have delicately pinpointed issues, of which they had been apprehensive for a long time. Some Evangelicals also may be thankful that I have exposed the false ecumenical movements such as “Evangelicals and Catholics Together” and “Christian Churches Together.” Kindly make the article known to your family and friends.

Catholic political coercion is what the Catholic Church thrived on for many years throughout the Middle Ages. Although her methods have changed, her goals have never changed, as one can see in this video. Her ability to grow in strength and number was and still is in proportion to her legal agreements (concordants) with other nations throughout the world. The video with W. J. Mencarow and Richard Bennett truly documents the Vatican’s diplomatic relations with 179 countries, enabling it to implement political coercion over many of these nations. Please make this video known by sending its URL (below) to your family and friends and your church members. Thank you.

In recent years, interest in the Orthodox Church among Christians has grown steadily, and there have been a number of converts to this religious body. Besides this, some of the main dogmas of the Orthodox Church are now found with some who called themselves Evangelicals. In addition, more and more Evangelical churches encourage... Read More
