Wrong Gospel Living!

Uh, hello there.  Huh.  Well, this is awkward:


Let's consider one quick point with Catholicism.  Official documentation of the Roman Catholic Church repeatedly refers to the sacrifice Christ in the mass (consider this source).

In doing this, they must deny the once-for-all sufficiency of the atonement of Christ (Hb 7:26), a key tenant to the gospel (1 Cor 15:1-4).  Hebrews 10:12-14 says,  "But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet. For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified."

Know the danger of trusting in a false gospel!  The Apostle Paul said in Galatians 1:8-9, "But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed."

Trust in the sufficiency of Christ's past work on the cross.  If you place your faith in Rome to provide you something more for your salvation, you're adding to Christ.  If you believe Christ needs to be re-presented with the sacraments during communion, you don't believe His past work was enough.

Repent and trust the true gospel of Scripture, knowing that Christ lived the good news for us.  It is only then that you can walk in the light of His grace.
