Myth of the Roman "Catholic" Church
is DAMNABLE heresy to teach that Joshua went to HELL or that the Holy
Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son.
Latin Church cannot be Catholic or UNIVERSAL because HERESY
would then be universal....If heresy was universal, this would make
void the promise of Joshua that the gates of Hades would not prevail
against His Congregation:
Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the
And Joshua answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona:
for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father
which is in heaven.
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock
I will build my congregation; and the gates of Hades shall not prevail
against it. (Matthew 16:16-18).
Christian Congregation is built upon Christ the ROCK . . . not Peter
he brought him (Peter) to Joshua. And when Joshua beheld him, he said,
Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which
is by interpretation, A STONE. (
is the dictionary definition of MYTH:
New Latin mýthus,
from Late Latin mýthos, from Greek muthos.
fiction or half-truth, especially one that forms part of an ideology.
An unfounded or false notion. A person or thing having only an imaginary
or unverifiable existence. Idle fancy, fable, fiction.

Middle English catholik, from Middle French & Late Latin; Middle
French catholique, from Late Latincatholicus, from Greek katholikos
capitalized: of, relating to, or forming the church universal or forming
the ancient undivided Christian church or a church claiming historical
continuity from it, capitalized: Roman Catholic.
true Christians—both East and West—originally called themselves
CATHOLIC which means UNIVERSAL in contradistinction to the Jewish congregation
which was local and restricted to Jews and proselytes only.
decree of Roman Emperor Theodosius linked Rome with Saint Peter!!
Theodosius was the first to officially decree that only those who believed
in the myth of Saint Peter at Rome would now be considered Catholic
Theodosius I (347-395).
Emperor from 378 to 392.
Theodosius I was a roughneck Roman soldier from Spain.
Damasus I was also from Spain.
380, Theodosius issued an edict that everybody in the Empire
MUST believe that Pope Damasus was the successor of St.
Pope from 366 to 384.
Very soon after
becoming Emperor, Theodosius issued a decree that everybody in the
Empire MUST believe that Pope Damasus was the successor of St. Peter:
January 19, 379, the emperor Gratian raised Theodosius to the rank
of emperor and gave him charge of the eastern half of the empire.
Theodosius was a general from Spain and a convinced partisan of
Nicene orthodoxy. He did not wait long to show his colors. On February
28, 380, Theodosius issued an edict saying that anyone who did not
follow the faith of Pope Damasus of Rome and Peter of Alexandria
was a heretic. (The Church of the Ancient Councils,
Here is a copy
of that edict :
is our desire that all the various nations which are subject to
our Clemency and Moderation, should continue in the profession
of that religion which was delivered to the Romans by the divine
Apostle Peter, as it hath been preserved by faithful tradition;
and which is now professed by the Pontiff Damasus and by Peter,
Bishop of Alexandria, a man of apostolic holiness. According to
the apostolic teaching and the doctrine of the Gospel, let us
believe the one deity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,
in equal majesty and in a holy Trinity.
authorize the followers of this law to assume the title of Catholic
Christians; but as for the others, since, in our judgement, they
are foolish madmen, we decree that they shall be branded with
the ignominious name of heretics, and shall not presume: to give
to their conventicles the name of churches.
They will suffer in the first place the chastisement of the divine
condemnation, and in the second the punishment which our authority,
in accordance with the will of Heaven, shall decide to inflict.
Edictum de fide catholica).
is a MIRACLE indeed that the Lord would reveal the presence of St. Peter
in Rome to a Roman Emperor . . . and keep it a secret from
the rest of the Christians....It seems that Theodosius had the same
secret insider information as Emperor Constantine:
will, it may be, also detail to us those particulars of his favor
which are secret to us, but known to you alone, and treasured in your
royal memory as in secret storehouses.(Eusebius, Oration
to Constantine, XVIII).
3 Dogmatic Creeds of the Roman "Catholic" Church contain heresy!!
Vatican acknowledges 3 dogmatic creeds that are ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL
for salvation in the Roman "Catholic" system....Anyone who
does not believe them is condemned to a fiery hell forever.... These
3 Creeds are:
Nicene-Constantinoplian Creed with the addition of the Filioque
"Apostles' Creed" with Joshua descending into HELL!
Athanasian Creed with the addition of the Filioque clause.
is the condemnatory clause in the Athanasian Creed:
will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the
Catholic Faith. Which Faith except everyone do keep whole and undefiled,
without doubt he shall perish everlastingly.
of the creeds contain an addition called the Filioque clause
that never gained acceptance with the Eastern or Orthodox Church . .
. and therefore has never been recognized as Catholic or universal.
"Apostles' Creed" declares that Joshua—the sinless Son
of God—went to HELL when He died . . . and therefore would NEVER
have gained acceptance with the Orthodox . . . or any sincere
Constantine was the founder of both Latin and Orthodox Churches!!
Constantine was the founder of the Latin Roman Papacy with headquarters
at Rome, and the Orthodox Church with headquarters at Constantinople.
English word CHURCH is translated from the Greek word EKKLESIA... In
Acts chapter 19, EKKLESIA is used to describe a meeting place
or assembly of the pagan goddess
Diana of the Ephesians:
ye have brought hither these men (Paul and Silas), which are neither
robbers of churches (ekklesias), nor yet blasphemers of your

Constantine divided the Roman Empire into 2 halves when he founded
a new capital in the East called Constantinople.
Western LEG of this divided Empire became known as the Latin
Papacy, and around 1000 A.D., arrogated the name
CATHOLIC or universal.
Pope was also called Patriarch of the WEST until 2006!!

2 churches represent the 2 LEGS of the metal image seen in the dream
of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon.
world empires of Daniel Chapter 2.
king of Babylon had a dream in which he saw all of world history
from his day to the end of time.
the prophet interpreted the dream as a colossal statue composed
of 4 different metals, representing 4 successive world empires.

be DIVIDED—but continue side by side until the end of time.
you cannot give an organization the appellation Catholic or universal
if it is confined to the Western world.
Filioque finalized the rift between East and West!!
establishing of another capital of the Roman Empire at Constantinople
split the Empire, but doctrinal differences, and later additions to
the ecumenical councils by the Latins, finalized the separation or rift.
Latin for "and (from) the Son", was added by the Latin church
to the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed.
the Council of Nicaea (325 A.D.) presided over by Emperor Constantine,
a creed or statement of faith was promulgated which was binding on all
the Roman Empire.
Nicean Creed was further ratified by the Council of Constantinople in
statement of faith was based on sound Biblical hermeneutics except for
one critical error: that water baptism leads to the remission of sins
or makes a person a Christian....If water can cleanse from
sin, then Christ shed his BLOOD in vain!!

heretical phrase "AND THE SON" was first added by the Latin
Third Council of Toledo, Spain, in 589 A.D. This fateful formula was
not officially adopted by Old Rome until the year 1014 —over 600
years after the Council of Constantinople:
mutual agreement between Rome and Constantinople, to say it once more,
was maintained until the eleventh century, when, during the coronation
of the German emperor Henry II (1014), the fateful formula was finally
adopted in Rome as well. As a result of this adoption, the altered
creed became standard throughout the West. Inevitably, the scope of
the debate widened as well. Before long, Rome was justifying the alteration
by its own doctrinal authority. As papal apologists were to argue,
it was sufficient that the Roman pontiff had declared it dogma; by
virtue of his Petrine power, he was not subject to conciliar judgment

Patrick used the SHAMROCK when describing the Holy Trinity to the
God wills, we will prove from the Scriptures and the writings of the
Christian Fathers, that this DOUBLE PROCESSION of the Spirit
from the Father and the Son is heretical.
is a quote from one of the most important early Christian writers: Saint
Irenaeus of Lyons:
regards His greatness, therefore, it is not possible to know God,
for it is impossible that the Father can be measured; but as regards
His love (for this it is which leads us to God by His Word), when
we obey Him, we do always learn that there is so great a God, and
that it is He who by Himself has established, and selected, and adorned,
and contains all things; and among the all things, both ourselves
and this our world. We also then were made, along with those things
which are contained by Him. And this is He of whom the Scripture says,
And God formed man, taking clay of the earth, and breathed into his
face the breath of life. Genesis 2:7 It was not angels, therefore,
who made us, nor who formed us, neither had angels power to make an
image of God, nor any one else, except the Word of the Lord, nor any
Power remotely distant from the Father of all things. For
God did not stand in need of these [beings], in order to the accomplishing
of what He had Himself determined with Himself beforehand should be
done, as if He did not possess His own hands. For with Him were always
present the Word and Wisdom, the Son and the Spirit, by whom
and in whom, freely and spontaneously, He made all things, to whom
also He speaks, saying, Let Us make man after Our image and likeness;
Genesis 1:26 He taking from Himself the substance of the creatures
[formed], and the pattern of things made, and the type of all the
adornments in the world. (Saint Irenaeus, Against
Heresies, Book 4, ch., 20).

IX (Pope from 1049 - 1054).
final split is called in the West the Great Schism, or the East-West
course the Orthodox acknowledge no such split or schism:
Is it possible to admit that a split within the Church or among the
Churches could ever take place?
ANSWER: Never. Heretics and schismatics
have from time to time fallen away from the one indivisible Church,
and, by so doing, they ceased to be members of the Church, but the
Church itself can never lose its unity according to Christ's promise.
(Bishop Kallistos Ware, The Orthodox Way,
amount of military might or political scheming can bring the two together
because Christ is ruling history with a rod of IRON:
he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter
shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.(Revelation
if the Vatican had a limitless money supply, and 100 Pentagons and German
Reichs at her disposal, she could not change or alter Bible prophecy
non-Catholic "Apostles' Creed"
"Apostles' Creed" is the most frequently used Creed in the
Latin church but it is not Catholic or Apostolic.
Nicene Creed originated in the East, but the "Apostles' Creed"
originated in the WEST, and was never approved by the Orthodox
and therefore has no claim to catholicity or universality.
origin of the Creed is obscure, but forgeries were rampant in the Latin
chuch at that time. The most infamous being the Donation of Constantine
and the Isidorean Descretals.
was probably a production of the Benedictine monks sometime between
500 and 600 A.D.
may be the final verdict on the claims of S.W. France to be the birthplace
of the textus receptus of the Apostles' Creed, very few will
be likely to deny that its origin is to be sought somewhere north
of the Alps at some date in the late sixth or seventh century.
(J.N.D. Kelly, Early Christian Creeds, p. 420).
is the Latin version of the Creed:
believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin
He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into hell. On the third
day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
did not descend into HELL when He died on the tree because hell (Gehenna
in Greek) is the final eternal abode of the wicked. Nobody
is in hell right now but that dreadful place will receive its first
occupants at the end of time:
the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and Hades
delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every
man according to their works.
And death and HADES were cast into the
lake of fire. This is the second death.
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into
the lake of fire.(Revelation 20:13-15).
the famous Resurrection chapter in the New Testament, St. Paul gives
his credal statement and sums up the Gospel which he preached.....It
mentions NOTHING about this so-called descent into hell:
brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you,
which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye
are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye
have believed in vain.
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received,
how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
And that he was buried, and that he rose again
the third day according to the scriptures. (I
CREED would NEVER have gained acceptance in the East because of the
horrendous implications that Jesus sinnedand went to hell after
he died on the tree!!
the "Apostles' Creed" the origin of the Athanasian Creed is
obscure, but it became widely used in the West around the time of Charlemagne:
will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold
the Catholic Faith. Which Faith except everyone do keep whole
and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish everlastingly.
And the Catholic Faith is this, that we worship one God in Trinity
and Trinity in Unity. Neither confounding the Persons, nor dividing
the Substance. For there is one Person of the Father, another
of the Son, and another of the Holy Ghost. But the Godhead of
the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Ghost is all One, the Glory
Equal, the Majesty Co-Eternal. Such as the Father is, such is
the Son, and such is the Holy Ghost. The Father Uncreate, the
Son Uncreate, and the Holy Ghost Uncreate. The Father Incomprehensible,
the Son Incomprehensible, and the Holy Ghost Incomprehensible.
The Father Eternal, the Son Eternal, and the Holy Ghost Eternal
and yet they are not Three Eternals but One Eternal. As also there
are not Three Uncreated, nor Three Incomprehensibles, but One
Uncreated, and One Uncomprehensible. So likewise the Father is
Almighty, the Son Almighty, and the Holy Ghost Almighty. And yet
they are not Three Almighties but One Almighty.
the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Ghost is God.
And yet they are not Three Gods, but One God. So likewise the
Father is Lord, the Son Lord, and the Holy Ghost Lord. And yet
not Three Lords but One Lord. For, like as we are compelled by
the Christian verity to acknowledge every Person by Himself to
be God and Lord, so are we forbidden by the Catholic Religion
to say, there be Three Gods or Three Lords. The Father is made
of none, neither created, nor begotten. The Son is of the Father
alone; not made, nor created, but begotten.
The Holy Ghost is of the Father, and of the Son neither made,
nor created, nor begotten, but proceeding.
there is One Father, not Three Fathers; one Son, not Three Sons;
One Holy Ghost, not Three Holy Ghosts. And in this Trinity none
is afore or after Other, None is greater or less than Another,
but the whole Three Persons are Co-eternal together, and Co-equal.
So that in all things, as is aforesaid, the Unity is Trinity,
and the Trinity is Unity is to be worshipped. He therefore that
will be saved, must thus think of the Trinity.
it is necessary to everlasting Salvation, that he also believe
rightly the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ. For the right
Faith is, that we believe and confess, that our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Son of God, is God and Man.
of the substance of the Father, begotten before the worlds; and
Man, of the substance of His mother, born into the world. Perfect
God and Perfect Man, of a reasonable Soul and human Flesh subsisting.
Equal to the Father as touching His Godhead, and inferior to the
Father as touching His Manhood. Who, although He be God and Man,
yet He is not two, but One Christ. One, not by conversion of the
Godhead into Flesh, but by taking of the Manhood into God. One
altogether, not by confusion of substance, but by Unity of Person.
For as the reasonable soul and flesh is one Man, so God and Man
is one Christ. Who suffered for our salvation, descended
into Hell, rose again the third day from the dead. He ascended
into Heaven, He sitteth on the right hand of the Father, God Almighty,
from whence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. At
whose coming all men shall rise again with their bodies, and shall
give account for their own works. And they that have done good
shall go into life everlasting, and they that have done evil into
everlasting fire. This is the Catholic Faith,
which except a man believe faithfully and firmly, he cannot be
saved. (Athanasian Creed).
