My Last Confession

A Conversation In A Catholic Confession Booth

 

roman catholic priest and woman in confessional booth

Catholic penitent: Bless me father, for I have sinned.  It has been something like 25 years since my last confession, if my memory is correct.

Catholic priest: My, that’s a long time… I’ll have to assign you 20 Hail Mary’s just for being such a procrastinator.  What took you so long to come in for confession?

 

Catholic penitent: I didn’t want to be molested by you creeps!  Just kidding!

Catholic priest: That’ll be another 20 Hail Mary’s, even if it was a joke.  I don’t like people reminding me of what a wicked organization I belong to.  So what sins are you here to confess?

 

Catholic penitent: All of them, of course!

Catholic priest: Well I hope so, but I need to know specifically which sins and how many times for each sin so I can calculate the proper number of Hail Marys and Our Fathers.

 

Catholic penitent: You think I can remember all that after 25 years?  You gotta be kidding!  How about you just give me a whole lotta stuff to recite over and over – enough to make sure that I’m in the clear with the Lord.

Catholic priest: Sorry, but the rules of the church don’t allow me to do that.  You need to tell me the specifics, as best as you can remember things, especially the really juicy stuff… I mean the really serious stuff.

 

Catholic penitent: OK, but how about you telling me your sins too.  What’s fair is fair, right?

Catholic priest: No, my sins are none of your business… they’re between me and God.

 

Catholic penitent: Oh really? What about me? Aren’t my sins against God and not against you?

Catholic priest: Technically yes.  However, since we Catholic priests claim to be God’s intermediators for you poor slobs – I mean poor souls – here on earth, you need to come to us priests so we can go to God on your behalf (and so we can have something to blackmail you with if the need arises – hee hee).

 

Catholic penitent: Well how do I know that God hears you?

Catholic priest: Because I say so and because “mother church” says so.

 

Catholic penitent: Oh.  Well how do YOU know that God is satisfied by me saying so many Hail Marys and Our Fathers?  And where do you come up with your numbers for how many times I should repeat those prayers?

Catholic priest: You ask too many questions.  Just trust me.  I’m your spiritual father, remember?  That’s why you need to call me “father”.

 

Catholic penitent: But what if your calculations are wrong?  What if I don’t say enough Hail Marys and Our Fathers?

Catholic priest: Well then, when you die, your relatives will have to pay me and “mother church” to say masses for you, to get your soul out of Purgatory.

 

Catholic penitent: But my neighbor says that there is no such place as Purgatory, only Heaven and Hell.  He told me that the Bible says “It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” [Hebrews 9:27].  So what good would it do for my relatives to pay you to say masses if there is no such place as Purgatory and if instead I’m forever damned in Hell?

Catholic priest: Who are you going to believe? Me or some Bible quoting neighbor?

 

Catholic penitent: But my neighbor has nothing to gain by what he told me.  But you and the Roman Catholic church stand to gain money from people who pay you to say masses for the dead.

Catholic priest: We need the money to operate our business… I mean our church.  So quit beating around the bush and just tell me your sins, so I can get back to the convent… oops… I mean back to the rectory.

 

Catholic penitent: But I am still wondering how I can get rid of my sins just by reciting some prayers.  How does that make up for all the bad things I’ve done and why did Jesus die on the cross if I could get rid of my sins simply by chanting a bunch of words over and over again?

Catholic priest: Those words are no ordinary words.  They are very special words, almost magical words!  You need to recite them to prove that you are really sorry for your sins and we priests do the rest!   Jesus did his part and now you and I have to do our part.

 

Catholic penitent: But I read in the Bible that God condemns repetitious prayers like the ones you priests assign us to recite for penance.  In Matthew 6:7 Jesus said “But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.” 

Catholic priest: Don’t worry about what Jesus said.  Just do what I tell you to do.

 

Catholic penitent: I’m not sure I like what you’ve been telling me, nor do I even like this whole confession system.  So before I confess my sins to you I have just one more question.

Catholic priest: Ok. What is it?

 

Catholic penitent: Well, I started reading the Bible for myself and it says in the gospel of Mark, chapter 2 and verse 7: “Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?”. That sure sounds to me like only God can forgive sins.

Catholic priest: Who said you can read the Bible for yourself, let alone interpret the Bible for yourself?  Don’t you know that you need to leave it to us priests and “mother church” to tell you what the Bible means?  In fact, you should not even be reading the Bible. It will only confuse you.  Even though what you read sounds like only God can forgive sins, you must remember that what “mother church” says always overrides what the Bible says.

 

Catholic penitent: I think I’d rather take my chances with the Bible and what God says in that Bible. 

Catholic priest: Now you’ve done it! You’ve proven yourself to be a heretic. If you don’t recant what you just said, and say 523 Hail Marys by sundown, I’ll have to excommunicate you.

 

Catholic penitent: Well then, excommunicate me.  I’d rather have Jesus anyway – the real Jesus that is.  He said in John 6:37 “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”

Catholic priest: Get out of my confession booth you Bible quoting heretic!  Away with you!

 

“But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”
[Matthew 15:9]

 


If this article about Catholic confession offends you, bear in mind that GOD is highly offended by the Catholic MAN-MADE confession system that substitutes the clergy of the Catholic Church for the ONE mediator God has provided, which is His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ…
 

“For there is one God, and ONE mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;” 1 Timothy 2:5

 
And don’t believe the lie of the Catholic Church that it is OK to pray to their man-made saints because (as they claim) they are not mediators but only intercessors, which is nothing more than one of many word-twisting exercises of the Roman Catholic Church.
 
The Catholic confession “system” is a license to sin, allowing Catholics to “get rid of their sins” simply by reciting some arbitrary number of “Hail Marys”. When a person sins, they are to confess to God, because their sins are violations of GOD’S LAWS. Also, when a person sins, they have not sinned against the priest at confession, they have sinned against others – if they lied to, cursed at, stole from or attacked or slandered someone. We are to confess to God and to the person sinned against. Also, we should apologize to and make restitution to the person offended. A Catholic priest should not even be part of the equation… So that whole Catholic confession system is illogical and useless and unbiblical.
 
Also, on a more personal note, my own mother was verbally harassed by a Catholic priest in a confession booth when she was a young woman. The ungodly priest was not satisfied with her confession and wanted her to tell him something more “juicy” as they say. Later on in life, I had a complete stranger, a 60 year old man, share with me that a Catholic priest had tried to rape him when he was just a 10 year old altar boy. That boy was spared when the priest chose another altar boy to rape who as an easier target. Please think long and hard about these things before you violate God’s commandments and go to some false priest instead of the living and true High Priest – the Lord Jesus Christ – to confess your sins.— RM Kane
 

“Seeing then that WE HAVE A GREAT HIGH PRIEST, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:14-16

Catholics Really Are Mary Worshippers

Roman Catholics really are Blessed Virgin Mary worshipers

Introduction

 
Let’s start this message by pointing out that Catholics are not properly instructed as to what “worship” is. Worship is to treat a creature like you should only treat your Creator. We will show with simple, clear examples, that Catholics treat Mary like they should only treat GOD.
 
Contrary to what Catholics are taught by their Church, they really do worship Mary, the woman who gave birth to Jesus Christ. In fact, if Catholics deny they worship Mary (the false glorified Catholic version of Mary), then they MUST admit that they don’t worship the Lord Jesus Christ either – and here is why I say this:

  • They name far more of their churches after Mary than after Jesus.
  •  

  • The have many more shrines dedicated to Mary than to Jesus.
  •  

  • They recite a prayer called the “Hail Mary” but they have no similar “Hail Jesus” prayer.
  •  

  • They have all kinds of medallions and statues of the image of Mary.
  •  

  • Everything Catholics do to honor Jesus Christ, they do on an even grander scale to honor Mary.
  •  

  • Their Mary has power over God – they claim that Jesus cannot refuse ANYTHING that Mary asks for.
  •  

  • Their Mary is omnipresent, just like God Almighty, since they believe that she can hear all their prayers no matter where they are, and
  •  

  • They also believe she can then do something about those prayers, no matter how many Catholics are praying to her at once.

Every time you kneel down in front of one of these religious statues and pray to the person they represent you are committing idolatry even if you don’t think so.

Why Do Catholics Worship Rome’s Mary Goddess?

  • Is it because they don’t know that their behavior towards Mary includes acts of worship?
  • Is it because they don’t know that their church has given Mary the divine attributes of a goddess?
  • Is it because they don’t realize that Jesus is the central focus of true Christianity, not Mary?
  • Is it because they have been indoctrinated by their church to be preoccupied with Mary?
  • Is it ALL of the above?

“And he [Jesus] is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things HE [Jesus, NOT Mary] might have the preeminence.” Colossians 1:18

Catholic Mary goddess idol more venerated than Jesus

 

In Catholicism Jesus Is Typically Depicted As:

  • a helpless baby wearing a diaper
  • a piece of bread, which Catholics call the Eucharist
  • a dead man on a cross with a crown of thorns on His head
  • a long-haired effeminate-looking hippy standing next to His mommy

In Catholicism Mary Is Typically Depicted As:

  • the ever-caring mother of baby Jesus
  • a glorious goddess ON A THRONE in Heaven surrounded by angels who wait upon her
  • the magnificent Queen of Heaven with a gold crown on her head
  • the magnificent Queen of Heaven with a glowing halo around her head
  • the magnificent Queen of Heaven with a circle of stars around her head
  • the magnificent Queen of Heaven with beams of light radiating from her hands
  • the magnificent Queen of Heaven standing on top of Earth as if she ruled and reigned over the planet

So who is being worshipped here? Who is being exalted the most – Jesus OR Mary? Is it really that hard to SEE – or is it just hard to ADMIT as a Catholic who may not wish to acknowledge being deceived by their religion.

Are Catholics preoccupied with the Lord Jesus Christ OR with their glorified false version of Mary?

Summary:

 
I could provide more examples and more evidence of the glorification and exaltation of Mary within the Catholic Church – and how it far exceeds any glory and honor that Catholics give to Jesus, but this should be sufficient to make the case that Catholics really are Mary worshipers, worshipers of the false Mary invented by the Catholic Church. — RM Kane

The Fake Catholic Jesus:

A Counterfeit Jesus And An Impotent Savior

fraud phoney fake false counterfeit catholic jesus christ

 
The Jesus of the Roman Catholic Church is a fake Catholic Jesus, far from anything like the real Jesus of the Bible.
 

Why we can say that the Catholic Jesus is a fraud, a weak, useless and imaginary savior:

  • He needs an imaginary goddess named Mary to help save you.
  • He needs your penance to help save you.
  • He needs the merits of dead Catholic-designated saints to help save you.
  • He needs the local Catholic priest to help save you.
  • He needs you to eat the magic wafer (the Eucharist) to help save you.
  • He needs you to recite repetitious prayers (like the rosary and novenas) to help save you.
  • He needs you to be baptized by a man in a religious costume to help save you.
  • He needs the imaginary place called Purgatory to help save you.
  • He needs the “stations of the cross” to help save you.
  • He needs masses for the dead to help save you.
  • He needs the “sacrifice of the mass” to help save you.
  • He needs the “last rites” (a.k.a. extreme unction) to help save you.
  • He needs you to attend mass on Catholic-designated holy days of obligation to help save you.
  • He needs you to fast during “Lent” to help save you.
  • He needs you to avoid eating meat on certain days to help save you.
  • He needs “miraculous medals”, rosary beads, scapulars and other superstitious trinkets to help save you.
  • He needs you to genuflect (bow down) in front of plaster statues to help save you.
  • He needs a world-wide network of nuns, priests, monks, bishops and cardinals to help save you.
  • He needs a self-righteous highly exalted sinner called the “pope” (who thinks he is a super spiritual “holy father”) to help save you.
  • And lastly, he needs you to confess your sins to a priest to help save you, a priest who for all you know may be a gay pedophile.

The REAL Jesus needs none of those useless rituals, traditions, or self-righteous works of spiritually dead sinners.  He can save whom He wills, when He wills by the power of His Spirit and the power of His Word.  The real Jesus is a member of the triune Godhead, which makes Him all powerful and all knowing.  He has no need for any help from anyone or any thing, not from any sinful, fallible person and not from any man-made object.  Neither will He ever share his glory with the world’s largest false church – the Church of Rome! Do yourself a BIG favor and LEAVE that Church and start reading the Bible so that you can know God’s true plan of salvation (by the merits of the Lord Jesus Christ alone) and so that you will be able to properly identify a BIBLICAL church… one that follows the teachings and practices of the New Testament.

 

“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost. [Titus 3:5]

 

“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” [Romans 10:17]

 

“Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.” [Hebrews 7:25]

 

“But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” [Matthew 15:9]

Gospel for Hostiles is an amateur singing duo whose lyrics are meant to spread the Gospel. We are all sinners and “hostile” to God unless and until we become saved through God’s amazing and wonderful grace. As individuals, we show our love of the Gospel in many different ways. The Gospel For Hostiles singers do it though their songs. May you be blessed as you enjoy their inspirational and very biblical music.

 

Additional Articles About False Catholic Doctrine:





The following creed is Rome’s (Catholicism’s) response to the Protestant Reformation and was written during that period when true believers were coming out of Rome and exposing it for the religious harlot that it is.


 

The Trentine Creed

(OR THE CREED OF PIUS IV., A.D. 1564)

 

1. I most steadfastly admit and embrace Apostolical and ecclesiastical traditions, and all other observances and constitutions of the Church.

 

2. I also admit the Holy Scripture according to that sense which our holy mother the Church has held, and does hold, to which it belongs to judge of the true sense and interpretations of the Scriptures. Neither will I ever take and interpret them otherwise than according to the unanimous consent of the Fathers.

 

3. I also profess that there are truly and properly seven sacraments of the New Law, instituted by Jesus Christ our Lord, and necessary for the salvation of mankind, though not all for every one; to wit, Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Penance, Extreme Unction, Order, and Matrimony; and that they confer grace; and that of these, Baptism, Confirmation, and Order cannot be reiterated without sacrilege. I also receive and admit the received and approved ceremonies of the Catholic Church in the solemn administration of the aforesaid sacraments.

 

4. I embrace and receive all and every one of the things which have been defined and declared in the holy Council of Trent concerning original sin and justification.

 

5. I profess, likewise, that in the Mass there is offered to God a true, proper, and propitiatory sacrifice for the living and the dead; and that in the most holy sacrament of the Eucharist there is truly, really, and substantially, the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ; and that there is made a conversion of the whole substance of the bread into the body, and of the whole substance of the wine into the blood, which conversion the Catholic Church calls Transubstantiation. I also confess that under either kind alone Christ is received whole and entire, and a true sacrament.

 

6. I constantly hold that there is a Purgatory, and that the souls therein detained are helped by the suffrages of the faithful.

 

7. Likewise, that the saints, reigning together with Christ, are to be honoured and invocated, and that they offer prayers to God for us, and that their relics are to be respected.

 

8. I most firmly assert that the images of Christ, of the mother of God, ever virgin, and also of the saints, ought to be had and retained, and that due honour and veneration is to be given them.

 

9. I also affirm that the power of indulgences was left by Christ in the Church, and that the use of them is most wholesome to Christian people.

 

10. I acknowledge the Holy Catholic Apostolic Roman Church for the mother and mistress of all churches; and I promise true obedience to the Bishop of Rome, successor to St. Peter, Prince of the Apostles, and Vicar of Jesus Christ.

 

11. I likewise undoubtedly receive and profess all other things delivered, defined, and declared by the sacred Canons, and general Councils, and particularly by the holy Council of Trent.

 

12. And I condemn, reject, and anathematize all things contrary thereto, and all heresies whatsoever, condemned, rejected, and anathematized by the Church.

 

This true Catholic faith, without which no one can be saved, I N.N. do at this present freely confess and sincerely hold; and I promise most constantly to retain, and confess the same entire and unviolated, with God’s assistance, to the end of my life.
