I did not write this article to criticize Bruce Marchiano. I sincerely do admire the guy. And I really love his role as Jesus in his films. My problem is that there are over one billion unsaved Roman Catholics in this world, and MILLIONS of them idolize Bruce Marchiano for starring as their favorite Bible character. Bruce admits that he is not a theologian, and I get that, but it doesn't require a degree from a theological seminary to see that the Catholic Church is of the Devil. Catholics teach and require keeping Seven Sacraments to get to Heaven, which is totally unbiblical. The word “sacrament” is not even found in the Word of God. What saith the Scripture? Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
If we don't let the light of the Gospel shine unto the world, then they won't see it, and cannot get saved. I know Bruce is not a theologian (in his own words; and that is okay), but for a guy with a ministry he is influencing millions of people, so he should at least give a clear Gospel presentation. Bruce's shallow plan of salvation appeals to unsaved Catholics, which means something is wrong with it! If the Gospel is presented properly, it will offend Roman Catholics, because it WILL EXCLUDE their damnable plan of works for salvation!!! I am sick and tired of career Christians—who make a living from singing or ministering—but the Gospel is hidden! I triple-dog dare you to show me even one mainstream Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) artist who gives a clear presentation of the Gospel on their ministry website. You cannot!!! Obviously they don't really care if their fans gets saved or not. The CCM industry rakes in over ONE BILLION dollars each year! Truly the love of money is the root of all evil.
I have made my point. Please do not allow the fraud of Roman Catholicism to take you to Hell. All the Popes are burning in Hell this moment. Tens of thousands of former Catholic priests are now burning in the fires of Hell, having died in their sins without Christ. Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith. God will not save anyone who is trying to be saved, He will only save those who are trusting to be saved. Religion is man trying to reach God through human effort, but Christianity is God trying to reach man by the sacrifice of His only begotten Son on the cross. If you are a truly born-again Christian, then don't you dare show any support for the Satanic Catholic religion! You ought to criticize it, refuting it for what it is, of the Devil.
