"In Bethlehem, dare you ask for a lady’s hand without using the matchmaker, go to the governor without a dignitary or buy a home without an agent. Only a fool negotiates his sentence, the marriage dowry or the price of his home. Such are thrown out of the Kingdom even including the one who does not come dressed properly to the wedding:
In this, Christ addresses the modern trickster who tells the congregants “come as you are”. Christ speaks prophetically on the condition of the falling away that we so clearly see, coming unprepared to the wedding. The lazy servant is one who comes to God’s wedding, improperly dressed, while for the politician, they dress as if they are entering Christ’s banquet."
Who said anything about coming as you are? This is an irrelevant point to your comments on the Abomination of Desolation, Oh that's right, your condemning all who don't follow your interpretation of end times amongst other things. Protestants (If they actually read their Bible) do NOT say, come as you are and live in sin, only anti-nomians say this. There are many I could list who repudiate sin, but I digress.
"I heard the empty arguments: “Rome insists that the Mass is the very same sacrifice as that of Calvary” (James White) “The whole concept of re-enacting and re-presenting Christ’s sacrifice on the cross is contrary to the clear teaching of Hebrews that this sacrifice occurred once for all time (Heb. 10:12-14)” (Norman Geisler)
The goats will never get it."
White's point still stands I'm afraid, The Lord's Supper was a memorial for what Christ had done, Plus, John 6 already explains what Jesus is saying and what Jesus says in context refutes Shoebat's interpretation of John 6 as well as the other Roman Catholic apologists who abuse this text. Also, Satan entering Judas and Judas leaving has nothing to do with the rejection of transubstantiation. Why should John have to clarify to his audience what Jesus is saying, plus again, the church fathers did not hold to the modern Roman doctrine of transubstantiation.
See the articles on John 6:
"Purgatory is taking a shower before you could jump in the pool (heaven) and it is in Maccabees. One needs to knock, seek and find, even ask, why seven books that Jesus used were removed from holy scriptures?
Even that Jesus, these will insist to remove, barking daily that Jesus cannot be expressed in a statue, but only in a paper-thin photo as thin as their spirit that cannot fathom a trinitarian theology with trinitarian interpretation where Scriptures has so many facets that we could spend a lifetime never being able to fathom."
Won't be dwelling on Purgatory too much, though I will direct all to Keith Thompson's documentary refuting Purgatory: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vnqFFUz_AU
For that matter, bowing a statue in a religious context is an act of Idolatry. Protestants have been telling Rome this for years, but Rome of course in their mind knows best and ignore the exhortation. You tell people to bow before a graven image, which is what many Catholics do, That is called an act of Idolatry and you know it.
Furthermore, we don't know what Jesus looked like, so a statue is not even an accurate representation of him.
"Even His crucifix, instead of being like Simon of Cyrene, we should be honored to carry the Cross around our necks as the Copts do in Egypt, instead, we would be like the Roman torturer, going after Jesus, flogging Him by tormenting and taunting the saints who like taking daily showers, confessing directly to a priest, to the living saints on earth as they are also in heaven…"
A cross worn around our necks is not the same as purgatory, confession to a priest and calling on the saints in heaven.
See my articles on the saints below:
Seriously, It amazes me you are using your eschatology to conclude the Roman Church is true.
"Every day I approve comments and see and I am beginning to be convinced 100% that so many are a miserable bunch who go after any sin. Even the infiltrators in the Catholic Church are blamed on every Catholic, Copt, Serbian, Greek, Russian Orthodox … so many are simply the accusers. These roam round about like devils using whatever few verses they remember to thwart the volumes of history and other books of the Bible they so much hate calling these “Apocrypha”. They prefer to feed from smelly cheese crumbs spilled by a glutton named Martin Luther who was an anti-Semite-devil in disguise.
Slander is key to recognizing the saint. Isn’t that what Jesus taught?"
This is nothing more than a tu quoque fallacy, Martin Luther (Not to excuse his actions against the Jews at all) didn't claim to be part of an infallible church. Rome however claims that when the Pope is speaking ex cathedra statements, he is making an infallible decoration. It doesn't surprise me that Shoebat went after Luther, after all, Theodore did the same thing in his debate with Keith Thompson. Like Father, Like Son.
I would need to look more into what Martin Luther actually did to Jews, but I will challenge Shoebat on this, Can you give me a source or quotation that backs up what your saying, or in the very least, link to something that backs up your claims. For that matter, Rome can be refuted not by just "using whatever few verses", the Bible itself, taking it as a historical document and not just a theological one, shows that the early church did NOT resemble the modern papal system.
Jesus said you will know them by the fruits and Rome demonstrates how much of a vile tree it is.
"Such holocaust was finally fulfilled from Luther’s instruction to be carried out by Hitler himself. And what is left of Germany today after stripping all the icons, seven books of the Bible, altars and confessional booths? Nothing but the flood of Muslim hordes issued forth from the mouth of the beast after the woman, a bloody river with multitudes from nations, tribes and different tongues raping and molesting as it was in the days of the Maccabees. Soon, Hagia Sophia will be desecrated, the Vatican and the “synagogues of God” where this horde will put their ensigns and hammer and chisel the stones of the Temple of God (Psalm 74). Soon we all will pray:
No. I will shun away the trickster and the politician. I will cause an earthquake, shatter myths and take the Grain Offering."
Protestants (Biblical ones) stripping away Catholic idols and evil papal practices did not cause the Muslims to come in and take Germany over. What you have in Europe are liberals and people falling away and letting paganism and atheism come into the culture. THAT is why the Muslims are being let into a country and are taking over. Plus Malachi 2:10 and that section in chapter 4 about striking the land with a curse have NOTHING to do with the church or the church fathers. The passages in question are talking about Israel:
"Malachi 2:10 Do we not all have one Father[b]? Did not one God create us? Why do we profane the covenant of our ancestors by being unfaithful to one another?
11 Judah has been unfaithful. A detestable thing has been committed in Israel and in Jerusalem: Judah has desecrated the sanctuary the Lord loves by marrying women who worship a foreign god. 12 As for the man who does this, whoever he may be, may the Lord remove him from the tents of Jacob[c]—even though he brings an offering to the Lord Almighty.
13 Another thing you do: You flood the Lord’s altar with tears. You weep and wail because he no longer looks with favor on your offerings or accepts them with pleasure from your hands. 14 You ask, “Why?” It is because the Lord is the witness between you and the wife of your youth. You have been unfaithful to her, though she is your partner, the wife of your marriage covenant.
15 Has not the one God made you? You belong to him in body and spirit. And what does the one God seek? Godly offspring.[d] So be on your guard, and do not be unfaithful to the wife of your youth.
16 “The man who hates and divorces his wife,” says the Lord, the God of Israel, “does violence to the one he should protect,”[e] says the Lord Almighty.
So be on your guard, and do not be unfaithful."
The people of Israel in Malachi were sinning greatly against YHWH and such can be found in the context. In particular in chapter 2, the people of Judah were guilty of intermarrying with Gentiles, something that the Torah forbad the Israelites from doing. The fathers that are mentioned in verse 10 are the ancestors of the Israelite people.
God has always preserved a remnant throughout history, even before the Protestant Reformation took place. You don't have to be a Roman Catholic to be a Christian, in fact it would make you the opposite.
Also, Malachi 4, let's read it:
"4 [a]“Surely the day is coming; it will burn like a furnace. All the arrogant and every evildoer will be stubble, and the day that is coming will set them on fire,” says the Lord Almighty. “Not a root or a branch will be left to them. 2 But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays. And you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves. 3 Then you will trample on the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day when I act,” says the Lord Almighty.
4 “Remember the law of my servant Moses, the decrees and laws I gave him at Horeb for all Israel.
5 “See, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before that great and dreadful day of the Lord comes. 6 He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents; or else I will come and strike the land with total destruction.”"
This is warning to the Jews not to fall away from the Torah, but to keep it and to wait for the coming Elijah.
Finally, It is abundantly clear in his material that Walid Shoebat does not understand what Sola Scriptura teaches. Sola Scriptura is the sole infallible rule of faith of the church, It does NOT mean that the church fathers are useless. It does not mean that you cannot appeal to history. The church fathers can be of great benefit to people. There are certainly a lot very enlightening things that can be found in their writings and certainly can be very helpful. HOWEVER..... They do not replace the scripture or become infallible authorities. You, Me and other apologists are to be judged by scripture, for that is the infallible rule of faith and the ULTIMATE rule of faith, NOT the only rule, but the ULTIMATE rule.
