Cartoon on Protestantism and the Bible

by Steve Ray on February 7, 2014

When I look back on my experience I find this cartoon has a ring of truth. There were many verses of the Bible that I either didn’t realize existed (though that may seem strange) or that we just ignored.

Other verses I just read with my “Baptist glasses” on and twisted them to fit my old tradition. Looking back it makes me happier than ever to be a Catholic.

The stuff you have written in your book shown below doesn’t make you any better. You are know trying to fit the Holy Scriptures to fit your ‘Catholic glasses”. You still stand condemned as ever before.

STEVE RAY HERE: Francisco, you’re only proving my point with you above. We don’t add anything to the Scriptures I give a list of items below that the Bible says is required for salvation. These are versus you cut out, they are verses we read and include, salvation is not by faith alone solvation also includes a whole list of things that are required by God namely obedience. The list I gave only proves my point thanks for helping me do that.

FROM MY BOOK “CROSSING THE TIBER”:
How does one receive salvation, justification, new birth and eternal life?
By believing in Christ (Jn 3:16; Acts 16:31)?
By repentance (Acts 2:38; 2 Pet 3:9)? [SOMETHING WE DO]
By baptism (Jn 3:5; 1 Pet 3:21; Titus 3:5)? [SOMETHING WE DO]
By the work of the Spirit (Jn 3:5; 2 Cor 3:6)?
By declaring with our mouths (Luke 12:8; Rom 10:9)? [A WORK]
By coming to a knowledge of the Truth (1 Tim 2:4; Heb 10:26)? [OUR ACHIEVEMENT]
By works (Rom 2:6, 7; James 2:24)?
By grace (Acts 15:11; Eph 2:8)?
By perseverance (Matt 10:22; Mk 13:13; Col 1:22-23)?
By his blood (Rom 5:9; Heb 9:22)?
By His righteousness (Rom 5:17; 2 Pet 1:1)?
By His cross (Eph 2:16; Col 2:14)?

Roman Catholics are doing the same things as the cartoon. In fact the Roman Catholics I have encountered don’t know the Bible that well nor their catechism. Studies even show this.
