Protestants have been told “St. Paul was the first Protestant. He stood up to Peter, the first Pope. We must follow Paul’s example, and stand up to The Catholic Church.” Protestantism willfully ignores St. Paul.
St. Paul was not a Protestant! He was a Catholic priest/Bishop. He says so in 1 Cor. 10:16. “The cup of benediction that we bless is it not a participation in the Blood of Christ. The bread that we break is it not a participation in the Body of Christ.”
St. Paul was a loyal Catholic. He instructs every generation: “keep the traditions that we taught you, whether by word of mouth or by letter”. St. Paul was a Catholic, loyal unto death.
St. Paul warns about Protestantism in Gal. 5, 16-22? “. . self indulgence is the opposite of The Spirit . . . When self-indulgence is at work the results are obvious: fornication, gross indecency, and sexual irresponsibility, disagreements, factions, envy, drunkenness, orgies and similar things. I warn you now, as I warned you before, those who behave like this will not inherit the Kingdom of God.”
Protestants are in 45,000 conflicting “factions”. They say “I believe in The Bible”, but none of them dare to deal with St. Paul’s condemnation of the self-indulgence that is manifested by choosing to be in their own“faction”!
St. Paul puts those in “factions” in the same class with “fornicators, the grossly indecent, the sexually irresponsible, the disagreeing, the envious, drunkards, and those who participate in orgies.” Those in Protestant factions don’t even notice! Protestantism has bizarre contradictions. “I believe in Jesus and The Bible. I am in a faction. The Bible says that being in a faction is on a par with being a drunken fornicator. I don’t care. I believe in Jesus and The Bible!'”
Every person in every “faction” is being told by St. Paul that he or she “will not inherit The Kingdom of God”. Compounding that lunacy, those in Protestant factions give money to the very people who are keeping them out of Heaven!
Protestantism willfully ignores St. Paul. Catholics are blessed with humble obedience.
