Protestant Churches

 Compared to the Tower of Babel

 

     In ancient time when man spread across the known world man with his pride wanted to build a tower that would reach heaven and man can become equal with God. Up until this point the whole world had one language - one common speech for all mankind. The people of the earth became skilled in construction and decided to build a city with a tower that would reach to heaven.

“Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2 as people moved eastward, [a] they found a plain in Shinar[b] and settled there.

They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”

But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6 The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 That is why it was called Babel[c]—because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth. Gen. 11:1-9 NIV

     So man was given many languages and was scatted over the face of the whole earth.

 

Catholic Church:

 

     Now Jesus Christ gave to his apostles the authority to forgive sins and the power of the Holy Spirit so the gates of hell will not overcome it. John 22:20-23

 

     At this time their was no reformation, there was no Roman Catholic Church there was only one true Catholic Church of Jesus Christ; filled with the Holy Spirit. In 1054 the Catholic Church spilt into two separate Churches, the Western Churches became the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Churches became the Eastern Orthodox Church. Yet, both still held to the same beliefs, same creeds, same traditions and the same teaching, and both remained filled with the Holy Spirit having full power to forgive sins and authority of Jesus Christ. The mentality that caused this split in the Church are dead and gone centuries ago, now it is the time for Mother Church to reunite her two half, western & eastern coming together again as one. It is also time for Mother Church to welcome her children Churches the Protestants back into the full blessing and graces of Mother Church.

 

Reformation:


     At the time of the reformation, if the spiritual leaders of the Church were corrupt, God would of punished them or in time they would have died and past away. The reformers failed to stay loyal the God Church and left to create their own. In 1517-1648 Martin Luther, John Calvin, Huldrych Zwingli and other Protestant reformers left Jesus Christ true Church and established their own Christian Churches; however, they failed to obtain Apostolic Succession and they have no authority to forgive sins or have the fullness of the Holy Spirit like Mother Church and this is why their minister will not hear confession because they have no authority to forgive sins. So Protestant churches teaching on forgiveness of sin is to take your sins directly to God and ask for forgiveness.

 

      God let Martine Luther and John Calvin and other Protestant reformers to their own delusions of pride, false belief and incorrect teaching, thinking that they are doing the right thing by breaking away from Mother Church so God gave them up.“So I let them go after the stubbornness of their heart that they might walk in their own counsels” (Psa. 81:12). God allowed the Protestants to their own mind and just as the people of the tower Babel ended up with many languages so the Protestants Churches ended up with over 2,000 denominations each teaching their own man made truth, believing they have the correct interpretation of the Holy Scriptures.


Signs left with Mother Church:

 

     God works individual miracles of healing to all his faithful no matter if you are Orthodox, Catholics or Protestants, but God works great miracle only through Mother Church where thousands even hundred of thousands are witness to this these miracles. Example: the miracle of the Sun in  the town of Fatima in Portugal where it was witnesses by hundred of thousand of people and reported by many newspaper of that country and others. and many healings took place at that event. Example: in the town of Lourdes in France where thousands of miracle of healing took place among the faith and still do to this day. Example: the body of St. Bernadette of Lourdes lay in her eternal rest  in a glass coffin, completely preserved, uncorrupt, no sign of body decay, a living miracle of God grace.


Personal Thought:

 

     If Mother Church, for a short time, lost its way, then God will remove the wicked leaders who practice their evil ways under the cover of the Church; and they will pay for their actions on Judgment day. God will always have His way. It was not up to the Protestant Reformers to do God’s work, but to trust in Him and remain Loyal to Mother Church, not to its leaders. But out of their pride they sought to correct the wrongness themselves by leaving Mother Church and starting their own Church. This was not the correct action to take.

 

     After 2,000 years Mother Church (Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox) still remain as one true Church holding to one theology and teaching of the faith, while the Protestants have over 2,000 denomination with over 2,000 different beliefs and teachings. WHY?


     The Protestants theologian interpret scriptures through human reasoning and not by divine inspiration that is why their are over 2,000 Protestant denomination all says the same thing "We are the true Church" "We have the correct teachings." The Catholic Church being filled with the Holy Spirit call a council of 2000 bishop to agree upon a single point of Doctrine, that is the working of the Holy Spirit. If one Protestant theologian from each denomination would come together and agree upon a single Protestant teaching then I would say that was the working of the Holy Spirit, and since the reformation it has never happen.


Result:

 

  1. The Lutheran Church was found by Martin Luther
  2. The Methodist Church was founds by John Wesley
  3. The Presbyterian Church was founded by Reformed Protestantism
  4. Reformed Protestantism Church founded by John Calvin
  5. The Mormon Church was founded by Joseph Smith
  6. The Jehovah Witness Church was founded by Joseph F. Rutherford
  7. The Church of England (Anglican) by found by King Henry the VIII
      1. The Episcopal Church is a branch of Anglican Church
      2. The Assembly of God Church is branch of Pentecostal

      The Pentecostal Church was founded by Charles Parham

       

      And so on and so on, and the list will go on.

       

           The Church I belong to is the same Church the Roman Catholics and Eastern Orthodox Churches belong to which was founded by Jesus Christ and his 12 Apostles.

       

      Final Notation:

       

           Please do not misunderstand me on this because the Protestants are our brothers and sister in Christ, and according to the outline I have written in the article title “Unity in Christ” they are the fallen away Children churches of the true Mother Church. They do not have the full authority and power of the Holy Spirit and in light of this they lack the following:

       

      1. 1. Apostolic Succession which is needed to forgive sins and administer the other Holy Sacraments. This is why they don’t teach on this subject and tell their member to go directly to God for forgiveness. John 20: 20-23

       

      1. 2. They lack the Holy Spirit and their theologians do not interpret the Holy Scriptures correctly and that is why there are over 2000 denomination, each having their own interpretation, each saying they are the correct church. For the first thousand years Mother Church interpret the Holy Scriptures, educated men with the help of the Holy Spirit, bishops in full unity with each others. Today, uneducated members of the Protestant Churches all interpret the Scriptures in their own way according to their own interest.

       

       

      1. 3. They lack the fullness of God graces and blessing. Its not that God does not bless them, but they could get more like the Catholic do. This is why God works miracles through the Catholic Church, but you don’t hear much from the Protestant Churches.

       

      1. 4. Protestants Seminary put very little importance on the writings of the early church fathers, men who study under the apostles themselves. So most Protestants minister are not associated or touched by the writings of the Church fathers. However, I know of 340 Protestant minister who did read the writings and put two and two together and became touched by the Holy Spirit in their search for the true church and left their ministry and joined the Catholic Church. Minister from all kinds of denomination joining the Catholic Church is making a very strong statement to the Protestant movement. There is something wrong.

       

      1. Over one Billion Catholics compared to three millions Protestant shows you where God Holy Spirit dwells. 

       

      The Call to Come Home

       

           As the 340 Protestants ministers have found their way home to Mother Church, Mother Church asks you to come home and reunite yourself with Gods true Church. As a number of Protestants evangelist have joined the Eastern Orthodox Church and have their way home to Mother Church, you to can come home, just open your mind, forget the incorrect poison teaching you where taught, open your heart for the true teaching of God, and come home to us. Your brothers and sister of the Mother Church wait to welcome you and make a great feast in your honor.
