I like to expose the enemy with his own words.

(Rev.) Dr. Cahill declared that “he would rather the Catholic should read the worst books of immorality than the Protestant Bible-that forgery of God’s Word, that slander of Christ.” – (Roman Catholic Tablet, December 17, 1853, p. 804).

“Do you allow your flock to read the Bible at all?” said a writer in the Contemporary Review to a friend of his, a parish priest. “No, sir, I do not; you forget that I am a physician, not a poisoner of souls.” -Contemporary Review April, 1894, p. 576.

“The doctrines of the Catholic Church are entirely independent of Holy Scripture.” Familiar Explanation of Catholic Doctrine, Rev. M. Muller, p.151.

Their refusal to surrender the scriptures was an offense that the Papacy could not tolerate. The Papacy was determined to exterminate the heretics from the face of the Earth. The heretics greatest offense, was that they refused to worship God according to the will of the Pope. For this crime, the heretics suffered every humiliation, insult and torture that man could event: ( Fox’s Book Of Martyrs)

1) Hanged and their genitals were cut off
2) The mothers were whipped
3) The women’s breast were ripped off
4) They were tied up and fried in a large pan
5) Their mouths were sewed shut
6) They were placed into a pot of boiling water
7) Their arms and legs were cut off
8) Some had their eyes bored out

The decree set forth in the year 1229 A.D. by the Council of Valencia… places Bible on The Index of Forbidden Books. The doctrine withholds “it is forbidden for laymen (common man) to read the Old and New Testaments. – We forbid them most severely to have the above books in the popular vernacular.” “The lords of the districts shall carefully seek out the heretics in dwellings, hovels, and forests, and even their underground retreats shall be entirely wiped out.” Council Tolosanum, Pope Gregory IX, Anno. Chr. 1229

The church Council of Tarragona ruled that: “No one may possess the books of the Old and New Testaments in the Romance language, and if anyone possesses them he must turn them over to the local bishop within eight days after the promulgation of this decree, so they may be burned.” D. Lortsch, Histoire de la Bible en France, 1910, p.14.

“Socialism, Communism, clandestine societies, Bible societies… pests of this sort must be destroyed by all means.” The encyclical Quanta Cura Issued by Pope Pius IX, December 6, 1866

“The Bible does not pretend to be a formulary of belief, as in a creed or catechism. There is nowhere in the New Testament a clear, methodical statement of the teaching of Christ” -Question Box, p. 66

“The very nature of the Bible ought to prove to any thinking man the impossibility of its being the one safe method to find out what the Savior taught.” Ibid., p. 67

What Roman Catholic leadership has to say about the Bible — 3 Comments

  1. it is totally faith based. jesus did it all, don’t be fooled by any other doctrine. no one works their way there [heaven]. stay with the good ole KJV bible. avoid the jehovah witnesses & all the other “isms’ that are out there. the end time deceptions are many. if it isn’t a resurrected jesus & teaching it is anti-christ.

  2. I agree that past popes tried to stomp out bible reading, but didn’t Pope Francis say that if you read your Bible for half an hour a day, it would count to “working your way to Heaven”? Not much, but, better than nothing. And what about the Bible in Spanish (Reina Valera edition)? Is that also “evil”? It’s Catholic-approved. Maybe they especially don’t like the KJV?

    • I never heard before the Pope saying if you read your Bible for half an hour a day, it would count to “working your way to Heaven”, but I am not surprised if he did say that. His religion is based on works. We don’t get to Heaven by any works of our own, just by pure faith in what the Bible says about Jesus. And what does it say?

      9  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
      10  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. — Romans 10:9,10

      I don’t know about Spanish translation. I don’t read Spanish. But Catholic approved Bibles are not as good as those translated by Protestants from the Textus Receptus manuscript, the same manuscript that the KJV was translated from. That is why the Vatican hates the KJV.
