History: God gave Three Simple Reasons to be Catholic. #23.

God spent 3,000 years to teach us a Simple History Lesson:  “Be Catholic!”


Question 1:  “Did God give us Two Simple Reasons to be Catholic in The Old Testament?”

Answer:  “When Sennacherib led the Assyrians against God’s Believers in 791 BC, God saved their land and people by destroying his army. (2 Kings:9-36)

194 years later, Nebuchadnezzar led Babylonians against Jerusalem in 597 BC.  God allowed him to conquer the land, destroy the Temple, steal their ‘treasures’, kill their Royal Family, blind their king, and deport the people to Babylon. (2 Kings 24:8-17).”


Question 2:  “What do Catholics learn from that?”

Answer:  “God destroys people, families, and nations when they are too disobedient to Him.”


Question 3:  “What History Lesson does The Prophesied Son of God, Jesus Christ, give us in The New Testament?”

Answer:   “John 14:23 is clear:  ‘Whoever loves Me will keep My Word, and my Father will love him and We will come to him.’


Question 4:  “What ‘Word of Jesus’ do only Catholics ‘keep’?”

Answer:  “Only Catholics obey His Church-Creating Word to The First Pope with Which Jesus Spoke One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church Into Being:  ‘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.’


Question 5:  “Did Jesus specifically tell those who would listen to Him to be Catholic and not some kind of Willful Protestant?”

Answer:  “Mat. 7:21-29 is clear:  ‘Jesus said to his disciples:  ‘Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the Kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of My Father in Heaven.’  Catholics know:  It is ‘The Father’s Will’ that people choose to be in The Only Church His Son died to leave on earth.”


Question 6:  “Can Willful Protestants get into Heaven on God’s Judgment Day?”

Answer:  “Jesus tells us what He will say to ‘many’ Willful Protestants on Judgment Day!  ‘Many will say to Me on that day,  ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your Name?  Did we not drive out demons in Your Name?  Did we not do mighty deeds in Your Name?’  Then I will declare to them solemnly,  ‘I never knew you. Depart from Me, you evildoers.’


Question 7: “Should people, families, and nations remember the Three History Lessons God used Sennacherib, Nebuchadnezzar, and Jesus to teach us?”

Answer:  “Every person, family, and nation is in a continual war for our souls.  Jesus died to leave  ‘the keys to The Kingdom of Heaven’ to The First Catholic Pope and his Successors.

Only a soul-devouring vanity would want any person, family, or nation to notBe Catholic‘ and get those ‘keys’!”
