Jesus Commanded, “Call No Man Father”


Matthew 23:9

9 “And do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven.”

This teaching and our sign was inspired by what Catholic Commentators of the New American Bible wrote concerning Matthew 23:1-12. In these verses Jesus teaches the crowds and his disciples to call no man on earth Father and also forbidding other titles. Here is the statement made by the Catholic New American Bible Commentary, copyright 1991:

The Matthean Jesus forbids not only the titles but the spirit of superiority and pride that is shown by their acceptance.”

We were shocked to find this statement not in a protestant commentary, but in a Catholic commentary! “Matthean Jesus”, is this commentary suggesting that there is more than one Jesus? Is the Catholic church somehow suggesting that the Jesus found in the Gospel of Matthew is actually another Jesus than the one that they claim. Furthermore, this proves to us that at least someone in Rome knows that calling the priest “Father” and the pope “Holy Father” is wrong.

You Can Know God

When the question is asked, “do you believe in God?” Many folks easily and quickly answer “yes”. However, when the question is asked, “do you know God?” Most people can not quickly say “yes”. This hesitation indicates the lack of “knowing”. Here is a really unique way for an individual to go from believing to knowing God. This presentation allows anyone to find God in his or her own house by the simple instruction followed in this presentation. The only thing you will need is a good Bible and the willingness to read it.

Peter Was Not the Rock

One of the biggest scandal’s of the Catholic Church’s history is removing God from his rock solid foundation and replacing Him with man. To do this they had to manipulate Scripture throughout the ages. In this teaching you will see that God is the Rock and not the Apostle Peter as the Catholic Church has taught in error for centuries. The prophet Isaiah quotes God as saying, “He knew of no other Rock”, besides Himself.

Isaiah 44:6-8

6 “Thus says the Lord , the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: ‘I am the first and I am the last, And there is no God besides Me.

7 ‘Who is like Me? Let him proclaim and declare it; Yes, let him recount it to Me in order, From the time that I established the ancient nation. And let them declare to them the things that are coming And the events that are going to take place.

8 ‘Do not tremble and do not be afraid; Have I not long since announced it to you and declared it? And you are My witnesses. Is there any God besides Me, Or is there any other Rock? I know of none.’

Testimony of a Catholic Man who Became a Born Again Christian

One of the most incredible testimonies you will ever hear. God reached this man in a very unique, supernatural way and delivered him from incredible religious bondage and a very deep prison of sin. Truly, when God chose this man he surely used the “weak and foolish things of the world, to confound the wise.” Also this testimony will astonish you by showing you how dreams, visions and prophecy are very relevant for today.

You Turn Things Around

This powerful message compares what Peter, (who is erroneously referred to as the first pope) wrote in comparison to today’s Catholic teaching & their manipulation of God’s Word.

The Rock Scandal

Revelation 22:18-19
“18 I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, if any man shall add unto them, God shall add unto him the plagues which are written in this book:19 and if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the tree of life, and out of the holy city, which are written in this book.”

Out of the 104 places that the Old Testament uses the word “rock” 30 are referring directly to God. In 1609 the Catholic Douay Rheims Bible replaced or removed 30 “rocks”, all or which have direct references to God. The 1970 Catholic New American Bible put back all the altered “rocks” from the Douay Rheims, but they also added another “rock” in the New Testament. Peter’s name when translated back to the original Greek is “petros”, which is a small stone. There are 156 places in the New Testament Scriptures where it is exactly that way, but not so in the 1970 New American Catholic Bible. They correctly translated “petros”, meaning ‘Peter’ a small stone, a whopping 155 out of the 156 times! The only place where they changed the translation is in Matthew 16:18 which correctly reads: “18 And I also say unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.” This verse which reads “thou art Peter” in all Bible versions prior to and after the 1970 Catholic New American Bible, is translated correctly except in the 1970 New American Catholic Bible, where it reads “thou art ‘Rock'”! Amazingly, this incorrect translation (revised in 1986) is improperly used in Catholic churches across the United States; instead of the corrected 1986 revised edition, which reads “thou art Peter”.

Bernard Maddoff was trusted by many with their hard earned money, and lost it all! The Roman Catholic Church is trusted worldwide by a billion plus people with their souls. If left unchecked, could it pull off the greatest spiritual heist of all time, and would you be willing to risk your own soul?

God’s Eternal Plan

From sleeping in a bed of worms(Isaiah 14:11), to walking on streets of gold, your choice. God has given each of us a free choice as to where we will spend eternity.
