Catholicism against Itself, Vol. Details (if other): Cancel.

Anti-Catholicism in the United States is historically deeply rooted in the anti-Catholic attitudes brought by British Protestants to the American colonies. Two types of anti-Catholic rhetoric existed in colonial society and continued into the following centuries.

Complete ed. first published in 1954 under title: Roman Catholicism against itself.

Anti-Catholicism is hostility towards Catholics or opposition to the Catholic Church, its clergy and its adherents.

Catholic teaching has traditionally held that those whose first marriages have not been annulled are in fact still married to their .

Catholic teaching has traditionally held that those whose first marriages have not been annulled are in fact still married to their first spouses, and so any sexual relations with other partners is adulterous - and that living in such a state of persistent grave sin precludes receiving communion. This helps explain why the reformers favor loosening the strictures against divorced Catholics receiving communion: because it's a gesture of inclusion, healing, acceptance. Just as Jesus consorted with the outcasts of his time, so his church should offer welcoming arms to any and all who want to receive the message of mercy and love and become active members of the People of God.

The common definition of Catholicism in early modern Europe as hinging on the challenge of Luther and other Protestant reformers, and on Roman reaction to that challenge, has obscured the complexity and multiform nature of the institution. First, consider the complexity of the papacy itself. Popes from Alexander VI (1492–1503) through Pius VI (1775–1799) exhibited many characteristics, but consistency and uniformity were not among them

Good price, good info.
  • Banal
Excellent Book. All Catholics should read it.
  • Invissibale
Provides interesting information, offers other viewpoints, and provides some great food for thought for the more liberal minded person especially someone interested in studying various religions.

O.C. Lambert "spent nearly half a century in extensive research, accumulating a library of official books. Since his death these books has been placed in the library of Abilene Christian University [a Church of Christ institution]." This abridged volume is Part I of II; you can get both parts in Catholicism Against Itself or Catholicism Against Itself Vol 1 & 2.

He wrote in the Preface to this 1963 book, "For nearly half a century the author has been collecting books of the Catholic Church which are issued with the approval of her book censors and the Imprimatur of her men of authority. The following pages contain statements gleaned here and there in the perusal of these books, on her long and checkered history, and concerning the development of her hierarchy, her voluminous literature, her elaborate doctrines, her awe-inspiring ceremonies, her attitude toward our government and the liberties we cherish. I have endeavored to ler her speak for herself... I will cheerfully accept all invitations to discuss these matters in public debate, with any representative of the Roman Catholic Church..." (Pg. 5)

He adds, "The Roman Catholic Church, I am convinced, is the most subtle, the most crafty, the most highly organized, the most persistent political institution in all the world. She knows how to talk on both sides of the question, and how to appear to be on both sides, so that regardless of which side wins in a political struggle ... she can appear to disown her members who lose... when she has gauged public reaction. One of my main purposes in this work is to establish that the REAL sentiments of the Catholic Church are." (Pg. 6)

He states, "There are practically two kinds of Catholic literature. One sort for popular circulation and another of entirely different nature for the clergy; one in which Catholic writers tell the truth, and in the other they do not." (Pg. 16) Later, he adds, "The casual reader may wonder how Catholic writers can admit so much untruth with so little apparent embarrassment. The answer is to be found in the Catholic doctrine of Mental Reservation. This is a general law permitting Catholics to lie, if by doing so they can further Catholicism. With them such lying is not sinful." (Pg. 35)

He asserts, "You could certainly not have a Roman Catholic Church today without the doctrine of Penance. This is the means for finding out all the innermost secrets of Catholics, and thereby enabling the hierarchy to control the people in a sort of continual blackmail." (Pg. 69) He adds, "There would be no reason, according to Catholic claims, to pray... for one in hell, and there would be no need to go to all this 'expense' for those already in heaven, so they presume all are in purgatory in order to defraud all Catholic families!" (Pg. 71)

It should be noted that this book was written prior to Vatican II; it is a strongly-worded critique, but its documentation may be of some interest to those looking for such critiques of Catholicism.

A didactic, logical, scriptural rejection of RCC assertions without evidence. Faith is based on substantial evidence, and is not a wild leap into the darkness of ignorance, iilogic or scriptural contradictions. Example: God says Bishops must be married men with believing children. The RCC contradicts God's command and insists that Bishops must be celibate men without children. Who is right, God or the RCC? Read ITim.3 and Tit.1 for the truth of the matter. We see that the RCC is led by unqualified men, acting in deliberate defiance of God's commandments. Is that who you want for your spiritual leader?Would you apply the same standard to your choice of a medical doctor? Would you look for a man not properly trained or licensed and then put your life in his hands? Maybe not?"Catholicism Against Itself" can help you make a good choice in the spiritual realm.

Being a former Catholic who converted to Christianity at age 33, this book, Catholicism Against Itself, (I have the 2-volume set) presents an excellent contrast of Catholicism and Biblical principles. The book very clearly and precisely using quotes from Catholic writings, doctrines, and even the Catholic Encyclopedia exposes the errors of Catholicism - the things that led me on a long search for truth. I highly recomend this book.
