Comparison Grid of Roman Catholicism, Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnesses, and Christianity
by Matt Slick

I hesitate to put this grid up only because I do not want to needlessly assail the Catholic belief system in an offensive manner. However, I cannot help seeing the similarities between Catholicism and some of the cults.

Do I think Catholicism is a cult? No. But I do think it has some very serious theological problems bordering on apostasy imposed upon itself through its history of letting traditions seep into the fabric of Biblical truth.[/b]

Lol. Perhaps brother Olaadegbu should go on youtube and see how his master Matt Slick is humiliated by the Catholic Robert Sungenis. I have checked that website carm. It sure is a gathering of mentally unstable individuals, most of them Calvinists. Their hate for Catholics is unrivalled and is beyond rational. If Catholics stopped debating them there I think they would close the website because almost all threads there are in the Catholic section. The Eastern Orthodox whose faith is over 90 percent similar to ours rarely get a peek from the carm faithful. @ Olaadegbu I don't think carm is a place for the edification of your soul. All it fosters is hate.

It is hate when people like you just demonize the Catholic Church without any logical point. When you're shown to be wrong, rather than admit it as Christians that you pretend to be, you pretend to be dumb or blind and you run away from that thread https://www.nairaland.com/2737934/why-mary-cannot-intercessor/1#41053880 and appear on this thread to spread more of the stupidd calumny that you cannot defend.

There is no hate in our messages it just happens that all who hate the truth will shoot the messengers of truth as you are doing here.

"For every one that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that does truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God" (John 3:20-21).

There are many good things in the Catholic Church, but I find it disturbing to see the similarities between itself and the cults--regarding a final earthly authority, non-biblical teachings, claims to be the one true church, exaltation of Mary to semi-goddesshood, the use of images, and adding works to salvation. The Catholics, of course, will complain that this chart is not fair or does not focus on the dissimilarities. Well, they are right in that it does not focus on the dissimilarities which are many. But that isn't the point of this comparison, is it?

The Protestant Reformation happened for a reason: to get back to Biblical theology and to be rid of extra-biblical teaching. The counter-cult movement has happened for a reason--to get back to Biblical theology and to be rid of extra-biblical teaching.

Eternity is a long time to be wrong.
