Welcome to ESCAPED CATHOLICS SAVED BY GRACE


John Schroeder

About This Ministry

What the divine Word of God (the Bible) says is substantially different in scores of places from what the VATICAN says it says. Hence, faithful Roman Catholics - quite innocently - hold onto beliefs that either directly contradict the inspired Scriptures, or are simply not supported by a presence there.The purpose of this ministry is to inform Roman Catholics of Vatican claims and doctrines that do not line up with the teachings found in the Scriptures.

The Council of Trent, (AD 1545-63) elevated so-called "Sacred Tradition" to a place of reverence equal to God's immutable Word, a declaration that has enabled Rome to impose upon the unsuspecting faithful many doctrines like those that Jesus condemned as "the commandments of men." (Matthew 15:9; Mark 7)It is historical FACT, however, that.....

...For the first four centuries after Christ, there was NO Roman Catholic Church, and NO popes. The Gospel left to the Apostles by our Lord was considered complete and sufficient. Jesus said it was "THIS" Gospel His followers were to preach, (Matt 24:14, 26:13, Mark 14:9) not a gospel made by men centuries later. Believers who died in those early centuries expected to go at once to heaven, (2 Cor 5:6, not to an intermediate place of purgation where they would have to be cleansed from sins Jesus already had paid for on Calvary. Those early believers knew nothing of Purgatory, indulgences, temporal punishment, transubstantiation, sacraments, etc., all of which doctrines were "patched" onto the true Gospel many centuries later by the Roman Church, an offshoot that began to emerge from apostolic Christianity in the fifth century.

To the believers who lived and died in the first four centuries after Jesus, the Gospel He left to His Apostles and the world was in need of nothing more than their faith in the finished work of Calvary and the Father's acceptance of it shown by our Lord's glorious resurrection.

A TALE OF TWO "DRAMAS"

For the Roman Catholic Church to claim it is the one true Church founded by Jesus on the Apostle Peter, is to plagiarize, as it were, "The Greatest Story Ever Told." The Vatican's claim can be compared to a playright who purloins the basic plot elements and the cast of characters of a highly successful drama, adds to it a lot of new complications and business, and then claims authorship not only of his own drama, but claims he's the author of the highly successful original drama as well. The fact that Rome has "canonized" as "saints" Peter, Paul, the other Apostles, and numerous early Church believers does not change them into Roman Catholics from what they first were called - CHRISTIANS - at Antioch. (Acts 11:26)

JESUS...THE TRUE AUTHOR

As He bowed His head on Calvary's cross, our blessed Lord cried, "It is finished!" (John 19:30)Three days later an angel exclaimed, "He is risen!(Matt 28,Mark 16:6)Forty days later Jesus told His assembled disciples, "ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." (Acts 1:

What the Apostles witnessed thereafter was the GOSPEL OF JESUS. There was no Roman Catholic Church, no Roman Catholic POPE, no "patches" to Christ's Gospel. And today, thousands of faithful Catholics who can think for themselves are realizing that the "patchwork" gospel of Rome's Catholicism is a fraud, and they are turning back to the apostolic Gospel of Jesus.

Yes,countless thousands of former Roman Catholics, including priests and nuns, have been freed from the captivity imposed on them by unscriptural laws and doctrines, none of which are found in the Gospel Jesus left behind. Through the Truth of God's Word, the holy Bible, and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, they have become one with us as "ESCAPED CATHOLICS SAVED BY GRACE."

"For by GRACE are ye saved through FAITH; and that not of yourselves: it is the GIFT of God: NOT OF WORKS, lest any man should boast." (Eph 2:8,9)

Catholic. You can not use Scripture because it totally destroys the Herecy of Catholicism.

Your lies in Catholicism is astounding and monumental

Excuse me, but here is another Herecy.

The Bible is the word of God. That is what the bible itself proclaims.

Your traditions were made up centuries after Christ gave his life. So they are not traditions of the time of Paul. Once again, you are deceived by the great desception which is Catholicism.

Jesus also said the one thing that nullifies the word of God in a persons life is tradition.

So try and understand "context"

yes they do disagree. They place their writings above it. They added 6 books that do not belong to it. They also added eons along the last 1600 years that are in direct conflict with the bible. Aklong with the Pope which is additional herecy.
