Dogmas are the teachings (traditions) of man (The Roman Catholic Church in this context) elevated to the authority of GOD'S WORD. The teachings of Rome are just like the Pharisees of Jesus day:
Matthew 15:6 ...Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition.
Mark 7:13 Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like that."
So below are listed the INVENTIONS of Rome.
I always wondered why as a Catholic follower, we did things that the Bible forbids. It's the teachings of man that's why. If you care about Truth and your soul, test every dogma by the Bible and not by your traditions, rituals, feelings, and so forth. If you're Catholic, I challenge you to search the Bible to see if what I am saying is true. Be a Berean:
Acts 17:11 Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.
I LOVE ROMAN CATHOLICS. I HAVE A LOT FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHO ARE CATHOLICS. I HATE MANY ROMAN CATHOLIC DOGMAS & TEACHINGS BECAUSE THEY DECEIVE PEOPLE AND LEAD THEM AWAY FROM GOD.
p.s. Yes, I am a saint not b/c the Catholic church says so, but because The Holy Bible says so. The Bible declares Christians to be saints. A saint is someone who God set apart from the world and for Himself. The word, "saint" means set apart, sanctified, holy. Anyone whom God has saved is a saint. -As a Catholic, I was not taught that Christians were saints. This is why it is important to study the Bible and not get fooled or lead astray by Catholicism, teachers or even me. Put me in check everyone in check by the Bible.
1 Corinthians 14:33 For God is not a God of disorder but of peace. As in all the congregations of the saints,
1 Corinthians 16:15 You know that the household of Stephanas were the first converts in Achaia, and they have devoted themselves to the service of the saints. I urge you, brothers,
2 Corinthians 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, To the church of God in Corinth, together with all the saints throughout Achaia:
2 Corinthians 8:4 they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the saints.
