Who would have “thunk” it? Baptists now publicly proselytizing Catholics, in Chicago.

A group of Baptist have won the right to distribute pamphlets and speak with attendees on public streets around a Catholic Church where the Church annually holds a festival. However they are precluded from using bull horns to convey their views.  Since 2008, plaintiffs have proselytized with their anti-Catholic message at St. Symphorosa Church’s annual Family Fest.  The festival is held on church grounds and the sidewalks surrounding the Church under a permit issued by the city.

Three Basic Religious Truths

There are three basic religious truths:

1) Jews do not recognize Jesus as the Messiah.
2) Protestants do not recognize the Pope as the leader of the Christian faith.
3) Baptists do not recognize each other in the liquor store.

CHRISTIAN ZIONISM: The Source of the Problem in the Middle East


Scofield’s notes weave parts of the Old and New Testaments together as though all were written at the same time by the same people. This is a favorite device of modern dispensationalists who essentially weigh all scripture against the unspoken and preposterous theory that the older it is, the more authoritative. In many cases the Oxford references prove to be puzzling rabbit trails leading nowhere, simply diversions. Scofield’s borrowed ideas were later popularized under the labels and definitions that have evolved into common usage today–”pre-millennialism,” “dispensationalism,” “Judeo-Christianity,” and most recently the highly political movement openly called “Christian Zionism.”

Thanks to the work of a few dedicated researchers, much of the questionable personal history of Cyrus I. Scofield is available. It reveals he was not a Bible scholar as one might expect, but a political animal with the charm and talent for self-promotion of a Bill Clinton. Scofield’s background reveals a criminal history, a deserted wife, a wrecked family, and a penchant for self-serving lies. He was exactly the sort of man the World Zionists might hire to bend Christian thought–a controllable man and one capable of carrying the secret to his grave. (See The Incredible Scofield and His Book by Joseph M. Canfield).

Other researchers have examined Scofield’s eschatology and exposed his original work as apostate and heretic to traditional Christian views. Among these is a massive work by Stephen Sizer entitled Christian Zionism, Its History, Theology and Politics.

I’m Roman Catholic is it ok to attend a Baptist Church?

Q: I’m Roman Catholic is it ok to attend a Baptist Church?
OK I was born and raised Roman Catholic and I go to church every Sunday and have christian values but i would not call myself a strict practicer. Well anyways a close friend of mine asked if i wanted to attend her church (Baptist) sometime and i said yeah ok because i thought well a church is a church and its the same god so why not it wouldnt hurt?

A; Catholics are obligated to attend Mass at a Catholic Church, on Sundays … where Jesus becomes present on the altar … body, blood, soul, and divinity … for the building up of the “Body of Christ” … which is the Church … and for the sins of the whole world.

Baptists experience Christ in spirit only.

Many of their beliefs and practices are in serious error, and are at odds with those of the Catholic Church … while their “communion” remains mere crackers and juice.

You have no business being there.

Get yourself to Mass, where you belong!
