More About This Book

Overview

The Roman Catholic Church is the largest denomination with 1.1 billion adherents. Recently the pope Benedict XVI reasserted that the Catholic Church is the only true church founded by Christ. Today there is a pervasive indifference as to the question what is the true Christianity. This is a serious situation because there are numerous false or only partly true versions of Christianity. The author of this book attempts a critical appraisal of the Roman Catholic Church by the criteria of the Bible and history.

The conclusion he reached is that the Catholic Church is a perversion of the Christianity of the New Testament. The author believes that he has substantiated the proposition that there are many unbiblical pagan elements in the Church. To give one example the monarchical papacy and the authoritarian church structure developed after the model of the authoritarian government of the ancient Roman Empire. No wonder that its official name is the Roman Catholic Church.

A theologian and a minister. Received a doctorate in systematic theology from the University of Toronto. He did the ministerial work for 17 years in the United Church of Canada. Took early retirement in 1990 to study and write books, which is, he feels, the talent and his main vocation he has received from God. He respects the Bible as containing the revealed word of God. According to the prophets of God "justice and mercy" and the pure preservation of the true religion of God are God's two major concerns. He believes that God's major concerns should be all Christians' major concerns as well. "The Roman Catholic Church - A Critical Appraisal" was written from that perspective in order to attest to the truereligion of God and to keep Christians from heading onto the wrong path.
