Protestants and Catholics? They’re both found in Hell.

Religion.

You know, my servants, that I’ve made “religion” a bad word, even though everyone has one.  Yes, everyone has a belief system that deals with ultimate questions, including where one goes when one dies.  What I love most are the fools who claim to have no religious beliefs, and yet will argue day and night against those with different religious beliefs.  Atheists are a prime example.  All they talk about is religion, and all they do is defend their religion against others.

But do you know what I enjoy almost as much as atheists showing themselves fools?

No?

OK, I’ll tell you.

It’s protestants and Catholics arguing among themselves, accusing one another, and condemning one another to Hell.

Yes, it’s rare that either group is so explicit, but underlying each side’s respective dialogs on religion is the underlying suspicion held by one group that most adherents of the other group are going to Hell.

Admittedly painting with a broad brush, let me summarize the view from Hell.  Protestants believe that Catholics have corrupted the simplicity of the gospel with “religion” (which is why they protested in the first place).  Protestants believe Catholicism is a religion of works, and its adherents fail to adequately understand salvation by grace through faith.   Catholics, on the other hand, although being a little slippery on this point, at a gut level believe the Catholic Church IS the church of Jesus Christ on earth, so that, by definition, one who does not belong to the Catholic Church is, by definition, going to Hell.

This tension was brought to my attention most recently by an interesting blog post over at patheos.com’s Bad Catholic blog entitled, “Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus — The Smackdown.”  Written by “Marc” in response to a YouTube video with the name “Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus,” the post is a well-written response by a Catholic to counter a well-done defense by a protestant of the idea that “religion” is antithetical to a relationship with Jesus, necessary for salvation.  Marc makes a good defense of “religion,” and Catholicism, which he rightfully infers, is the religion targeted in the YouTube video.

Here is what you need to know, my servants, the eternal home of human beings is not determined by labels, protestant or Catholic.  The eternal home of individual human beings is dependent upon one thing: their spiritual state on earth based on a spirit made alive by the grace of God through Jesus Christ.

Period.

There are many protestants that have never been made alive, i.e., born again by the Spirit of God.  They may be protestants on earth, but we call them friend in Hell.

And, of course, there are many Catholics that go through the motions and haven’t a clue as to the saving grace of Jesus Christ.  We do see a tendency among Catholics to rely on the outward appearances of ritual and tradition to ensure their salvation.

Here’s the bottom line, my friends: Hell is full of those who called themselves protestants and Catholics on earth.

Who is not here?

Those protestants and Catholics and anyone other “good servants” whom God calls Christians.

  1. Thanks for the link to the Marc’s article, Devil. It is excellent.

    And yes, I am quite sure that the hell is full of Catholics and Protestants and everyone else.

    The Catholic that says that one who does not belong to the Catholic Church is going to Hell know nothing about Catholicism or Hell.

    • Pedro:

      I love you man, but as an ex-Catholic, I have to say that Catholicism has gotten much more wrong than it has gotten right. Of course, I would say the same for much of “Protestant” Christianity as well.
      I don’t see myself as just some rebellious fault-finder either. Both groups have a long history of straying from the biblical faith of our apostolic fathers. I think that is the point of our Satan-channelling blog author and the YouTube kid. I think they both have excellent points. The only “one, true Church” is made up of a minority of true believers who cling to Christ in His word and will not be bought off by man-made doctrines and traditions. Do these people who actually cling to Christ and His finished work of salvation exist within the Catholic and Protestant traditions? Of course! Where else can they go? But they are not popular within those traditions and are viewed with suspicion by the apostate church hierarchy and most of their fellow pew-sitters. That is how it must be for “woe to you if all men speak well of you”. That would imply that you are not willing to suffer with Christ the scandal of His gospel message.

      • Thanks, Mike N.

        You are also my brother and I love you too. Your comments always enlight me.

        I think you are right when you say that the true believers are those cling to Christ.

        However, for me, Catholic Church has been astonishing right about Christianity. Even during bad popes, Catholic Church kept her blessed doctrine.

        God bless you, Mike.

      • No Mike you are wrong.Its the catholic church alone that goes back to the first century gaver us the bible the a[postles creed andf evangelized whole nations many centuries before luther.Catholics believe we are saved by grace through faith and we can never earn salvation by works.But if someo0ne is swaved good works and a changed life will result and thats the teachings of Jesus.”any branch in me that bears no fruit is cut down and thrown in the fire” etc etc.All 7 sacraments are biblical especially Jesus real presence in the eucharist and thats taught by Jesus in John 6 and paul in Corinth 10 and 11.the communion of saints is in revelation 5 and 6 and hebrews 12.we honor mary as luke one says.we dont worship her.We teach Jesus alone is our mediator.Catholics have been one unified whole for 2000 years the gates of hell never prevailed against it while protestents have splintered and divided into 33000 denoms.

  2. To our illustrious Host:

    Thanks for your insightful post. Not that I’m not willing to take your word for it, (after all you’d never bend the truth, now would you…) but some of those pesky words of Jesus come to mind. As recorded in Matthew 7:21, Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
    22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
    23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
    24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
    25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

    Is it just my odd way of seeing things, or does our Savior require a little more that a passive belief in order to get back to where he is? It’s clearly his grace that saves us but isn’t it reasonable to conclude he’s told us he requires something in return?

    As for those that will perhaps be spending a little time with You, Jesus did give us a clue about those qualifications too. HE also said:

    “Therefore, if any man shall take of the abundance which I have made, and impart not his portion, according to the law of my gospel, unto the poor and the needy, he shall, with the wicked, lift up his eyes in hell, being in torment..”

    Kind of puts the need for “compassionate conservatism” (or “liberalism”) in a little brighter light, don’t ya think?

    Well have a nice day…given the temperatures in new England I’d of thought you’d been sending us some new travel brochures touting the advantages of your climate…

  3. It almost seems as if the Devil is denying that Jesus founded a Church, which of course is beneficial to the Devil because it frees humanity from obligation. LOL devil!

  4. joeclark77 Says:

    So one thing we can all agree on is that Eastern Orthodox are screwed?

  5. And Eli said; “I did not call you, got back to sleep.
    That slightly out of context quote always makes a strange kind of sense.

  6. Oops “Go back to sleep.”

  7. A lot of the christians are nice people. That is fine. They leave me alone. I leave them alone. A lot of the leaders are crooks. Of them, I say to you, they hate being belittled, called names. If you call them things like Cock s*****, Mother F*****, cull, bastare, etc. they will either grow up or self destruct. Either is fine with me. Or just call them Liars, Thieves, Murderers, Pedaphiles, Baby Killers, etc. It is all true to varying degrees for each person. The apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, teachers, etc. have even stated that a prayer to Jesus won’t save you. I know. The old testament says, “My people perish for lack of knowledge.” The new testament says, “The truth is hidden to those that are perishing.” Hmmmm. They are blasphemers of the holy ghost. Very narrow minded. “The children of Ninievah will rise up and accuse the christians.” (kind of a quote). “They speak evil of what they do not understand, and what they do understand, like brute beasts. Their damnation is just.” “Let them be accursed.” Even some of their own prophets (St. Matthew’s seed faith church) told me, “They should have supported you.” Concerning christians. They did’nt. That is fine. The leaders deliberately ‘hood winked’ me and took my money. That is not fine. For you psychics, check out the Throne of David and those that sit on it today. Like king David. He fits all of the descriptions above. And more. So the more of you satanists attack these hypocrites, the better chance I have of being left alone and succeeding at what I want. The are blind. “Blind lead the blind, both fall into a ditch.” You lizards did a great job using the levites to creat the ‘code book’ blble. Eh? They cannot even make up their mind on their own scripture. Double minded, lukewarm. I spit them out. You need group energy to destroy them. One against ten won’t work.

  8. Mahayana Buddhism views other religions not as rivals but limitations. The western religions are severely limited and limiting. So I reject them and work with the Hindu and Buddhist. I reject christianity, judaism and islam. I deal with the far east. The people in the west did not understand me and the leaders were not interested. They have their own agenda. So I reject them. And their ‘God’. And their savior. So now they will hopefully leave me alone. Inside and out. I will work with the Far East religions.

  9. For those of you that hate christianity and want to destroy it at all cost, then all of you psychics check out the Throne of David and those modern christians that sit on it today. Use your psychic powers. If they are wicked, liars, thieves, hypocrites, then you can destroy.
    Use GROUP energy. One against ten won’t work. You need mass energy. I would leave the innocent alone. That is just wise.
