Peter Kreeft didnâ€™t write a logic textbook for nothing: In his presentation, Roman Catholic apologetics are straightforward and consistent. In Catholic doctrine, the Roman Church is the continuing Incarnation of Christâ€”literally, His body in the world. Thatâ€™s why Kreeft says the church is supremely authoritative and infallible in its declarations. Thus, the bookâ€™s title, Jacobâ€™s Ladder: Ten Steps to Truth (Ignatius Press, 2013), is, as Kreeft makes clear, a reference to climbing the church as Christ all the way to full commitment to the Catholic Church.
For those unsure about their Protestant convictions, this book is quite dangerous. For non-believers who want to stay non-believers, itâ€™s downright deadly....
Thanks Jim...never my intention to bash, but rather, to keep the facts going strong. Say I was still Charismatic, a 7th day'er, or whatever, and people could prove to me, using the Bible, why I was wrong, why they were wrong, etc, hey, I would run as fast as I could if I was serious about doing things the right way. Other than being incredibly handsome ( : ) ), I've always had an open mind...thank God, so it's never difficult for me to ditch what I think I know for what's right.
Christ did not found the Roman Catholic church as it is today, Peter was never a Pope and there's no records of him ever even being in Rome, and the Roman machine is far from being Infallible in itsÂ declarations.
Romes doctrines are provably, diametrically opposed to the word of God...did I mention provably?...so how can Rome claim to be the one true church when they, provably, work against God's own instructions? How can they claim to embrace Christ when they defy him in so many blatant ways? How can they claim to love, trust, and obey Him when, by their own words, their own tradition trumps the Word of God? How can they claim to trust only in Him for all things yet condone, promote, and practice praying to dead people who can't see, hear, or help them?
