▪︎ The Roman Catholic Church believes that faith alone in Jesus Christ is NOT sufficient for salvation.
▪︎ The Bible clearly and consistently states that receiving Jesus Christ as Savior, by grace through faith, grants salvation (John 1:12; 3:16,18,36; Acts 16:31; Romans 10:9-10,13; Ephesians 2:8-9).
The Roman Catholic Church rejects this.
The official position of the Roman Catholic Church is that a person must believe in Jesus Christ AND be baptized AND receive the Eucharist along with the other sacraments AND obey the decrees of the Roman Catholic Church AND perform meritorious works AND not die with any mortal sins AND, AND, AND etc.
Basically stating that Christ’s death on the cross was insufficient.
The Catholic Church teaches many concepts and traditions which are not Biblically based including: apostolic succession, worship of saints or Mary (idolatry), prayer to saints or Mary, the pope / papacy, transubstantiation, plenary indulgences, the sacramental system, and purgatory.
There is simply no teaching of any of these in scripture.
The Roman Catholic Church is not the church that Jesus Christ established.
It is not a church that is based on the teachings of the Apostles (as described in the Book of Acts and the New Testament epistles).
