I Was Blind, Now I See – Jose A. Fernandez

One can well understand the hold that the Roman Catholic Church has over the soul of the Spanish people, particularly over the candidates for the priesthood, being brought up since early boyhood in such an atmosphere and with such ideas. That may explain the reason why in past centuries Protestants were burned at the stake Read More

New Life for a Jesuit Priest – José Rico

Christ became my “only” Savior, for none other had died on the Cross for me. He also became my “sufficient Savior” because His blood is all-powerful to wash my sins from my soul. How miserably the rites, ceremonies, and human traditions of Romanism had failed to cleanse my soul for God. PlayStop X Share on Read More

God’s Grace in New Guinea – Jacob Van der Velden

God in His love and mercy and being full of forgiveness came into my life and a miracle happened. A Roman Catholic priest in his late fifties would never have naturally begun a conversation with a Reformed missionary. The priest that I was would surely not! I had never seen a Reformed missionary, had never Read More

Salvation: God’s Grace in Christ Alone Saves

by Richard M. Bennett If you are a Catholic, can you say without a doubt that you are right with God at this very moment? Perhaps you will answer, “Well, I’m following the teachings of the Church on how to be right with God.” Then would you agree that those beliefs should match God’s written Read More

Out of Hell and Purgatory – Peter Alphonsus Sequin

For the rest of the afternoon I entreated God on my knees, in the name of His dear Son, to show me the way to go to Him. I opened my New Testament and read, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not Read More

Jesus Saved Even Me – Jose Manuel De Leon

I observed, with qualms of conscience, countless rules and laws; I received sacraments and practiced ceremonies, all without knowing Christ as my Savior, or even wishing to read the Word of God. Besides, I could not teach what I was ignoring. Of course, it had never occurred to me to think that I was practicing Read More

The Holy Spirit Leads His People – Roman Mazierski

The questions I am always asked are, “How did it happen that you have turned to the Lord and become a Bible believer, after having been a Roman Catholic priest for many years? Did you read any Protestant books? Did you approach a Protestant pastor to seek his guidance? Or was it that you went to a Protestant meeting Read More

The Truth Set Me Free – Toon Vanhuysse

There was not a higher calling. To be a priest in the Church of Rome! We were chosen to carry out again the sacrifices of Jesus Christ in the present. We had become offerers of God’s grace; that was my conviction. We had the coveted pretension of being a kind of “maker of blessings.” How Read More

I Was A Blind Leader Of The Blind – Salvatore Gargiulo

The Roman Catholic Church is really a church that follows Mary rather than Christ. I never stopped urging people to recite the holy Rosary (a monotonous repetition of prayers to Mary). I enthusiastically passed on to others the stories about miracles she is supposed to have performed, which are nothing but the work of the Read More
