Dear [first name]:
Greetings in Jesus’ name. Thank you for your letter. I read over it carefully. You quoted from the Apostle’s Creed and from The Catechism of the Catholic Church, but not once from the Holy Bible. The reason the Biblical message must be stressed is because it is final authority — given for all Christian doctrine, correction, etc. The man of God is thoroughly equipped with the Bible alone:
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Tim 3:16,17)
So when there is a contradiction between the Holy Bible and Mormonism or Catholicism or Jehovah’s Witnesses, we must embrace the Biblical message to have the truth. If not, we are violating 2 Tim. 3:16,17 and believing a non-truth, which will be disastrous.
Regarding Catholicism the plan of salvation is different than the Biblical message. That is why you are still addicted to your sins. You are a slave to sin, though you are sincere, because you are not now acting upon the Biblical truth about salvation. NOTE: A real Christian is set free from his sin addictions (Rom. 6:22; etc.). The counterfeit plan of salvation offered by Catholicism is the sacraments, Mary and being a Catholic. Such is powerLESS to free one from his sin slavery and cleanse his heart from sin! The same can be said about Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, etc. All false religions have a message about salvation, which will not set one free from sin.
Read over carefully and act upon the enclosed literature and write me back, if you want. (Remember, you are 100% SAFE to believe and act upon the Bible message! Do it to be safe and to have the truth and eternal life.)
