Protestantism: “I do it my way!”

Jesus Founded One Church.  Many don’t like it.  “I don’t like The Catholic Church.  It tells me that I must love God and follow rules I don’t like!”   They prefer denominations that are loose on Church attendance, remarriages, abortion, and abortion-inducing birth control.  Protestantism:  “I do it my way!”

In every age, Catholics work to obey.  “If I take Jesus seriously, I must respect Him.  I must follow the facts.  Jesus Founded The Catholic Church when He said ‘Verily, verily I say onto 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 respect Jesus enough to accept and strive to obey the teachings of The Only Church He Founded.  “Jesus clearly gave Catholic priests the power to forgive sins when He said to His first Catholic Bishops:   “Those whose sins you forgive on earth are forgiven in Heaven.” 

After receiving Absolution, obedient Catholics take the next step.  “I need to receive Catholic Communion.  That is important that He repeated 14 times:  ‘If you do not eat My Body and drink My Blood you do not have life in you.’   I must do what is necessary to ‘have life in’ me.”

Those who want to avoid His rules avoid His Church.  The other denominations have partial truths:  “I know Jesus is The Messiah because He did fulfill hundreds of prophecies about Him.   But, I can get to Heaven without being Catholic!  I can hold ‘the keys to The Kingdom of Heaven’ in my own hand!.  I can do what I want and I can get to Heaven on my own.

Thus do souls paralyzed by pride disappear into the fog.   Protestantism:  “I do it my way!”
