Heresies(See also Controversy) (NOTE - These dates are in many cases approximate. Many of these heresies had been current in the Church years before, but only when they were officially adopted by a Church Council and proclaimed by the Pope as dogmas of faith did they become binding on Catholics. At the Reformation in the 16th Centurey these heresies were repudiated as having no pare in the Religion of Jesus as taught in the New Testament.)
1) Of all the human inventions taught and practiced by the Roman Catholic Church, which are contrary to the Bible, the most ancient are the prayers of the dead and the sign of the Cross. Both of these began 300 years after Christ ----------------310 AD
2) Wax candles were introduced in churches about ----------------------------320 AD
3) Veneration of angels and dead saints began about --------------------------375 AD
4) The Mass as a daily celebration was adopted in -----------------------------394 AD
5) The worship of Mary the mother of Jesus and the use of the term "Mother of God" as applied to her originated in the Council of Ephesus in --------------431 AD
6) Priests began to dress diferently from the laity in --------------------------500 AD
7) The docrine of Purgatory was first established by Gregory the Great about the year -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------593 AD
8) The Latin language as the language of prayer and worship in churches was also imposed by Pope Gregory I. in the year 600 after Christ. (The Word of God forbids praying and teaching in an unknown tongue. [Read 1 Cor. 14:9]) -------- 600 AD
9) The Bible teaches that we pray to God alone. In the primitive church never were prayers directed to Mary or to dead saints. This practice began in the Roman Church about 600 years after Christ. (Read Matt. 11:28; Luke 1:46; Acts 10:25-26;14:14-18)------------------------------------------------------------------------ 600 AD
10) The Papacy is of pagan origin. The title of Pope, or universal Bishop was first given to the Bishop of Rome by the wicked emperor of Phocas in the year 610 AD This he did to spite Bishop Ciracus of Constantinople, who had justly excommunicated him for his having caused the assassination of his predecessor emperor Mauritius. Gregory I, then Bishop of Rome refused the title, but his successor, Boniface III, first assumed the title of Pope. Jesus did not appoint Peter to the headship of the Apostles and expressly did forbid any such notion. [Read Luke 22:24-26; Eph. 1:22-23; Col 1:18; I Cor. 3:11]) --------------610 AD
11) The kissing of the Pope's feet began in the year 709. It had been a pagan custom to kiss the feet of emperors. The Word of God forbids such practices. (Read Acts 10:25-26; Rev. 19:10; Rev. 22:9) ----------------------------------------709 AD
12) The Temporal power of the Popes began in the year 750. When Pepin the usurper of the throne of France descended into Italy, called by Pope Stephen II, to war against the Italian Longobards. He defeated them and gave the city of Rome and surrounding territory to the Pope. Jesus expressly forbade such a thing and He himself refused worldly kingship. (Read Matt. 4:8-9; Matt. 20:25-26; John 18:38) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------750 AD
13) Worship of the cross, of images and relics was authorized in 788. (This was by order of dowager Empress Irene of Constantinople, who first caused to pluck the eyes of her own son Constatine VI, and then called a Church Council at the request of Hadrian I, pope of Rome at that time. Such practice is called simply IDOLATRY in the Bible, and is severly condemned. [Read Exodus 20:4-14; Deuteronomy 27:15; Psalm 115])-------------------------------------------------------------------788 AD
14) Holy Water, mixed with a pinch of salt and blessed by the priest, was authorized in the year -----------------------------------------------------------850 AD
15) The veneration of St. Joseph began in the year ------------------------890 AD
16) The baptism of bells was instituted by pope John XIV in the year--965 AD
17) Canonization of dead saints, first by Pope John XV, in 995. Every believer and follower of Christ is called a saint in the Bible. (Read Rom. 1:7; I Cor. 1:2; etc) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------995 AD
18) Fasting on Fridays and during Lent were imposed in the year 998. By popes said to be interested in the commerce of fish. (Bull or permit to eat meat), some authorites say, began in the year 700. This is against the teaching of the Gospel. (Read Matt. 15:10; 1 Cor. 10:25; I Tim. 4:1-3) ---------------------------998 AD
19) The Mass was developed gradually as a sacrifice and attendance made obligatory in the 11th Century. The Gospel teaches that the sacrifice of Christ was offered once and for all, and is not to be repeated, but only commemorated in the Lord's Supper. (Read Heb. 7:7; 9:26-28; 10:10-14) ------------------11th Century
20) The celibacy of the priesthood was decreed by Pope Hildebrand, Boniface VII, in the year 1079. Jesus imposed no such rule, nor did any of the Apostles. On the contrary, St. Peter was a married man, and St. Paul says that bishops were to have wife and children. (Read I Tim. 3:2-5; and 12; Matt. 8:14-15) --------1079 AD 21) The Rosary, or prayer beads was introduced by Peter
the Hermit in the year 1090. This was copied from Hindoos and Mohammedans. The counting of prayers is a pagan practice and is expressly condemned by Christ. (Read Matt. 6:5-13) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------1090 AD
22) The Inquisition of heretics was instituted by the Council of Verona in the year 1184. Jesus never taught the use of force to spread His religion ------1184 AD
23) The sale of Indulgences, commonly regarded as a purchase of forgiveness and a permit to indulge in sin, began in the year 1190. The Christian religion as taught in the Gospel condemns such a traffic, and it was the protest against this traffic that brought on the Protestant Reformation in the 16th Century. ----------1190 AD
24) The dogma of Transubstantiation was decreed by Pope Innocent III in the year 1215. By this doctrine the priest pretends to perform a daily miracle by changing a wafer into the body of Christ, and then he pretends to ead Him alive in the presence of His people during Mass. The Gospel condemns such absurdities; for the Holy Communion is simply a memorial of the sacrifice of Christ. The spiritual presence of Christ is implied in the Sacrament. (Read Luke 22:19-20; John 6:35; 1 Cor. 11:26) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------1215 AD
25) Confession of sins to the priest as least once a year was instituted by Pope Innocent III in the Lateran Council, in the year 1215. The Gospel commands us to confess our sins direct to God. (Read Psalm 51:1-10; Luke 7:48; Luke 15:21; I John 1:8-9) -------------------------------------------------------------------1215 AD
26) The adoration of the wafer, (Host), was invented by Pope Honorius in the year 1220. So the Roman Church worships a God made by human hands. This is plain idolotry and absolutely contrary to the spirit of the Gospel. (Read John 4:24) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------1220 AD
27) The Bible forbidden to laymen and placed in the Index of forbidden books by the Council of Valencia in 1229. Jesus commanded that the Scriptures should be read by all. (Read John 5:39; I Tim 3:15-17) --------------------------1229 AD
28) The scapular was invented by Simon Stock, and English monk. It is a piece of brown cloth, with the picture of the Virgin and supposed to contain supernatural virtue to protect from all dangers those who were in on their naked skin. This is fetichism -----------------------------------------------------------------------1287 AD
29) The Roman Church forbade the cup to the laity, by instituting the communion of one kind in the Council of Costance. The Gospel commands us to celebrate Holy Communion with bread and wine. (Read Matt. 26:27; I Cor. 11:26-29) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------1414 AD
30) The doctrine of Purgatory was proclaimed as a dogma of faith by the Council of Florence. There is one word in the Bible that would teach the purgatory of priest. The blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth us from all sins. (Read I John 1:7-9; I John 2:1-2; John 5:24; Romans 8:1) -----------------------------------------------1439 AD
31) The doctrine of the Seven Sacraments was affirmed in 1439. The Gospel says that Christ instituted only two sacraments, Baptism, and the Lord's Supper. (Read Matt. 28:19-20; 26:26-28) -------------------------------------------------1439 AD
32) The Ave Maria, addition of part of the last half. It was completed 50 years afterward and finally approved by Pope Sixtus V, at the end of the 16th Century. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------1508 AD
33) The Council of Trent, held in the year 1545 declared that Tradition is of equal authority with the Bible. By tradition is meant human teachings. The pharisees believed the same way, and Jesus bitterly condemned them, for by human tradition they nullified the commandments of God. (Read Mark 7:7-13; Col. 2-8; Rev. 22:18) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------1545 AD
34) The apocryphal books were added to the Bible also by the Council of Trent. These book were not recognized as canonical by Jewish Church. (Rev. 22:8-9) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------1546 AD
35) The Creed of Pope Pius IV, was imposed as the official Creed 1560 years after Christ and the Apostles. True Christians will retain the Holy Scriptures and the Apostles Creed as their creed. Hence their creed is 1500 years old and the creed of Roman Catholics. (Gal. 1:8) ---------------------------------------------1560 AD
36) The Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary was proclaimed by Pope Pius IX. The Gospel states that all men, with the sole exception of Christ, are sinners. Mary herself had need of a Savior. (Read Rom. 3:23; 5:12; Psalm 51:5; Luke 1:30; 46-47)---------------------------------------------------------------------1854 AD
37) In the year 1870 after Christ, Pope Pius IX proclaimed the dogma of Papal Infallibility. This is a blasphemy and the sign of the apostasy, and of the anti-christ predicted by St. Paul. (Read II Thess. 2:2-12; Rev. 17:1-9; 13:5-8, 18) Many Bible Students see the number of the Beast (Rev. 13:18) 666 in the Roman letters of the Pope's title "VICARIUM FILII DEI." - V=5, V=5, I=1, L=50, I=1, I=1, D=500, I=1 - Total
666. -----------------------------------------------------------1870 AD
38) Pope Piux X, in the year 1907 condemned together with "modernism" all the discoveries of modern science which are not approved by the Church. Piux IX had done the same thing in the Syllabus of 1864. ---------------------------1907 AD
39) In the year 1930 Pius XI condemned the Public Schools --------1930 AD
40) In the year 1931 the same Pope Pius XI reaffirmed the doctrine that Mary is "the Mother of God" ------------------------------------------------------- 1931 AD
41) In the year 1950 the dogma of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary was proclaimed by Pope Pius XII ---------------------------------------------1950 AD The Roman Church says it never changes; yet it has done nothing else but invent new doctrines which are contrary to the Bible, and has practiced rites and ceremones taken bodily from paganism. Some scholar has found that 75% of the rites and ceremonies of the Roman Church are of Pagan origin. NOTE - Cardinal Newman, in his bood, "The Development of the Christian Religion" admits that . . . "Temples, incense, oil lamps, votive offerings, holy water, holidays and season of devotions, processions, blessing of fields, sacerdotal vestments, the tonsure (of priests and monks and nuns), images . . . are all of pagan origin . . ."

(2) Vitalized Justification
the basic tentative justification is vitalized (activated, completed, finalized) by a voluntary consecration to take God's will instead of self-will, to sacrifice restitution hopes, exchanging theses for the provilege of following in Jesus's steps, and when accepted by God, begotten of the Spirit to the divine nature, to New Creature status (embryo New Creature) A199:t - A200; A196:2; A225:2; A231:4-A234:1; C351:t, 1; E145:1-3; F102:1 - F104; F131:1 (F85-F162 esp F151-F157); T19:2-22:3; T114:3; R3236:12; R3237:2; R3280:10; R4745:9, 14; R5422:14; R5423:1

One statement of God is as true and as firm a foundation for faith as a hundred. (B144: t) As seekers after truth, it will not do for us to say, in view of these passages, that the majority of them seem to favor whatever view we incline to prefer, and then to ignore the others. (B143: b; B144: t; A11: 2; E167: 1; R1697: 7)
Much of the language of the Bible is figurative, and in our common conversation we also use many figures. (R5383: 2) The symbolism of Scripture, rightly understood, is very forceful, and there is always a close resemblance between the symbol itself with the thing symbolized. (D-F xii: 1) A parable is never an exact statement, but merely an illustration of a truth by something which is in many respects like it. (A138: m; R2604: 1) The symbolic must always bend in interpretation to the plainer, more literal statements, as soon as their symbolic character is recognized. (B144: b)
The words of our Lord . . . must be interpreted in harmony with other declarations of the inspired Word. They must not be interpreted so as to conflict with other statements. (R2488: 3; R3133: 11; R3134: 1-7) Very crude conceptions . . . entirely out of harmony with the inspired Word . . . often drawn from too literal interpretations of our Lord's parables . . . illustrating the absurdity of attempting to force literal interpretations upon figurative language. (A138: 2; A317: b; B167: m; B273: 2; C165: 1; C256: 4)

When studying or applying a known type we should be sure not to mix type with anti-type. (R1387: 1; R1386-R1389 good on symbols and types). A type must not be used to teach a doctrine, but merely to illustrate one that is already taught in plain terms. (R1386: 7) An anti-type never follows its type but takes its place upon the same date. (B181: m; R5966: 11)
In many of the prophecies of the Old Testament in which Egypt, Babylon, and Israel figure so largely, not only was there a literal fulfillment intended, but also a secondary and larger one. Thus, for instance, the predictions regarding the fall of Babylon, etc., must be considered extravagant beyond measure, did we not recognize a symbolic and anti-typical as well as a literal Babylon. (A313: 1; A315: m; A318: 2)
