Catholics understand Protestantism through the ages.

1 Kings, 22:  19-23 tells us how God used a “lying spirit”  to defeat those who disobeyed Him.

Verse 19:  “Micaiah continued: “Therefore hear the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD seated on his throne, with the whole host of heaven standing to his right and to his left.  The LORD asked: Who will deceive Ahab, so that he will go up and fall on Ramoth-gilead? “

There was a “Council” in Heaven.   Many angels made suggestions to God about the best way to destroy Ahab.

“And one said this, another that, until this spirit came forth and stood before the LORD, saying, ‘I will deceive him.’

Of all the angels in Heaven, “this spirit” did  come forth and told God that he would deceive Ahab.


“The LORD asked: How?   He answered, ‘I will go forth and become a lying spirit in the mouths of all his prophets.’ The LORD replied: You shall succeed in deceiving him. Go forth and do this. 

So now, the LORD has put a lying spirit in the mouths of all these prophets of yours; the LORD Himself has decreed evil against you.”


Catholics understand Protestantism through the ages.  God did use a “lying spirit” to defeat His enemies on earth.  The “lying spirit” told God that he would do so by violating The Commandment:  “Thou shall not bear false witness.”

Catholics know that He Who has The Authority to Make The Law has The Power to suspend The Law!   God approved of using evil to destroy evil!


Historical perspective makes it clear:  Ahab was a Samaritan.  He was the leader of those who denied God’s Decree of Kingship to The House of David.

The Samaritans denied the validity of God’s Covenant with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and David.

The Samaritans were early Protestants.


The process continues.

Today, “false prophets”  deny The Covenant of God with The Only Church He Spoke Into Being.  “false prophets” continue to lead people to disobey God’s Word:

“And I say unto you thou art Peter and on this rock I build My Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I give you the keys to The Kingdom of Heaven.”


Catholics understand Protestantism through the ages.  In every generation, “the Lord has put a lying spirit in the mouths” of all false “prophets”.  God has “decreed evil against” them.

They end up like Ahab.

They don’t care!
