Apostles Refute the Apostles’ Creed

The Apostles Creed is recited across many of the “Christian” religions.  This creed is a “statement of faith” often used as part of baptismal ceremonies.  In the previous article on this subject, we showed that the apostles themselves would not even know the Apostles Creed.  It was fabricated three hundred years after Jesus and the Apostles under the influence of Babylonian, Greek, and Roman worship practices.  These practices are contrary to God’s Word.

Let’s look more closely at this creed and at what Jesus and the Apostles themselves had to say.  To begin, what exactly is the creed?

Are Your “Biblical” Beliefs in the Bible?

Many have come in God’s authority and have deceived the majority. This has been prophesied in God’s Word, the Bible, to come upon the world from the very beginning to the end.

Just as Eve was deceived by the serpent, so it says in the last book of the Bible, that “Old Serpent” has deceived the whole world. (Gen 3:13; Rev 12:9)

Let’s begin by looking at just a few things that have been said by God’s Son and His servants, the Prophets in His Word.

“Many shall come in My Name”

Jesus/Y’hoshua was asked by his disciples, what would be the signs of the end of the age. He answered them and said:

Waiting for Rapture? You’re still here!

What is the doctrine of Rapture?

The idea of Rapture is NOT in the Bible! “According to some millenarian teaching, it is the “transport” of a “believer” from earth to heaven at the Second Coming of Christ.” They actually purport that “the chosen” will be lifted up bodily into the sky, leaving nothing but a pile of clothes behind.

Many characters in Roman mythology, including the Roman progenitor, Aeneas, have been lifted up bodily into heaven. He is recognized by them as the god, Jupiter, from whom they got the Black Madonna.  Millenarianism itself is actually based in Zoroastrianism which is an ancient pagan, Persian religion.

Not The Apostles Creed

The Apostles Creed is recognizable to most “Christians” in the world.

Does this sound familiar?

“I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.  I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary…”

The creed is recited as part of the Roman Catholic Mass and baptism.  The Episcopalians, Lutherans and Methodists also recite the creed as part of their baptism rituals.  It may come as a surprise to the laity in the Protestant branches of Christianity to learn that Catholics recite the Apostles Creed and vice versa.  Why?  Because the Apostles Creed is a “statement of faith” and these different religions are taught that their religion is the correct religion, yet they all have the same “statement of faith.”  Even more surprising is that this creed cannot be found in the Bible or in any other writings by the Apostles.  So, where did it come from?

Apostolic Succession

This article will answer the question of “Apostolic Succession,” what it is, who has claimed it for themselves, and to whom it rightfully belongs.

Jesus warned to watch out for “false prophets/teachers who come to you as wolves in sheep’s clothing.” The Book of Revelation states that the “whole world” has been deceived by a certain religious entity who is the “Mother” of them all. Let’s take a closer look at this and see what it all means.

Can You Spy a False Prophet?

Jesus and the Apostles warned often of “false prophets.”  In the Book of Deuteronomy, Moses spoke of false prophets.  Who were they talking about?  Meanwhile, there are legitimate prophets like Moses, Jesus, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Elijah, the Apostles and many more.  What is a prophet and how can you tell a false prophet apart from the one you should actually listen to?  Let’s take a look.

The Mystery of the Black Madonna

Worship of a Black Madonna, Mother-Goddess goes back to ancient times and has been fused into the majority of cultures globally. The origins of this are highly contested among scholars. This article will finally solve the Mystery of the Black Madonna: where and who it came from. But whether it’s white or black, it’s the same image. Syncretism is the practice of combining or fusing different forms of belief or worship into one, i.e. Greco-Roman.

The feast day of the so-called “Black Madonna of Czestochowa” (Poland) is celebrated on Sunday, August 26th. Roman Pontiffs have recognized and venerated this icon for centuries.

The Cardinal’s Sins

Clerical Sex Abuse CartoonThe Roman Catholic Church has been rocked, once again, by revelations of atrocious crimes committed by the clergy and Cardinals.  The  Pennsylvania Grand Jury Investigation Report documents the latest revelations.  Stop and read the report introduction.  It can be found here for download or here to read online.  Some of the main takeaways are as follows:

  • The Roman Catholic Church acted as if following “a playbook for concealing the truth.”1Reference page 3 of the introduction.  Members from the FBI National Center for Analysis of Violent Crimes assisted with this determination.
  • The Church has put its reputation above the welfare of children.
  • The Church does not and has not followed Civil Laws by failing to report predator priests to law enforcement.

With this in mind, consider the structure of the Roman Catholic Church.  The “pope” or Pontifex Maximus is at the top, followed by the red hat Cardinals.  There are currently 224 Cardinals, of which 16 reside in the United States.

The Pope selects the Cardinals.  Likewise, the Cardinals elect the Pope.   Birds of a feather, flock together.  

These 225 leaders “shepherd” 1.2 billion Catholics worldwide.  That congregation includes A LOT of children.  It is time to look deeper into these unclean birds.  What is going on and above all, where is God?!

Ancient Roman Holidays – Two for One

There are two Roman holidays being celebrated on this day, but where did they come from and what do they mean? The Prophets of God have been warning Israel for a very long time how they provoke God to anger by participating in such “holy days.”  Let’s take a look and see why:

Ferr-agosto is a Roman holiday celebrated in Italy on the “ides of August.” It coincides with the major Roman Catholic Religion feast of the “Assumption of the Virgin.” After a 2-week fast, it’s a time for Italians to go to the beach before summer ends.

Ferragosta comes from the Latin, Feriah Augusti (the festivals of the Emperor, Caesar Augustus, 63 BC – 14 AD) which was introduced back in 18 BC.

Caesar Augustus - August is named for him
“And it came to pass in those days that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.”     Luke 2:1

Augustus’ predecessor, Julius Caesar had been elected Pontifex Maximus in 63 BCE. Augustus inherited the role about the time of Christ. The Pontifex Maximus, or the Roman high priest, was assumed by the Roman Catholic Pontiff.
