Catholic church over the century, has the highest number of faithfuls being the first religion to be instituted by our Lord Jesus Christ who appointed Saint Peter as the head of the Church.
The Church lived as one, with one faith, one baptism (Eph4:5)with common interest for about five centuries. Then there was no division.
The division started in the year 451 AD which gave birth to protestant denominations. More religious bodies were created from this.
Ever since then, these bodies are bent on destroying the Catholic church. They tend to pull more people away from the church claiming that Catholic church is in darkness and they have seen the light.
Do we still pray to the same God, why the division? Why making destroying the Lord’s church their goal?
Catholics are misled because of these:
Lack of knowledge and understanding of their root: most Catholics do not know much about the church “my people perish for lack of knowledge”(Hosea 4:6).
We have it all in the Catholic church; the Rosary, the sacraments, the holy bible, the book of the saints, prayer books, book of the catholic doctrines, pious societies, etc. But we ignore all these. A protestant will come with “give your life to Christ” and all the blasphemies against the Catholic church and the faithful will agree to that simply because he lacks the knowledge of his faith, no good backup to defend his faith. Who told you that your life is not with Christ.
Impatience: The worst case is when a Catholic is facing trials and temptations. That is when he will star running from pillar to post in the quest for miracles and wonders. Because of impatience, the faithful may end up finding himself in worst cases. Situations like this can be defeated by endurance and serious prayers.
Do not be deceived, “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world” (1John 4:1) “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that brought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction” (2Peter 2:1)
