For centuries the Vatican has practiced the doctrine of indulgences, which is an extortion racket designed to force people to give the Vatican money. Indulgences were usually demanded, based on the fabricated lie, that people could pay a Priest money to get their relatives out of purgatory or hell. The Vatican also said the only way to Heaven was through giving a Priest money and through doing what he says (This works based salvation overseen by Catholic Priests is known as the doctrine of penance, this is further practiced when a Catholic goes to confession, and is prescribed a list of works to undertake which will omit their sins). According to Roman Catholic doctrine, Priest’s have the ability to forgive sins.
These Roman Catholic doctrines are non-biblical and a contradiction of what Jesus Christ taught, as the Bible clearly states that salvation is obtained through putting your faith in Jesus Christ and not in a religious employee (Catholic Priest). The Bible says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son (Jesus Christ), that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) However Rome does not preach this Bible truth as it would rob it’s Priests of their power.
In the below video taken from the movie, ‘Luther,’ you can observe a portrayal of how evil and deceptive the doctrine of indulgences were. Rome continues to extort the world with indulgences in other ways, which include using it’s Knights of Malta in the UN (Knights of Malta have permanent observer status on the UN council), to facilitate the global warming fraud, and use it as an excuse to implement a world tax.
