The gates of hell did not prevail in the Catholic church

Matthew 16:18 commentary

The gates of hell did not prevail, the true followers of Jesus reformed the Catholic church. The “Reformed Protestant tradition” continues today, faithful to the “apostolic teaching.”

…and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.

The Roman Catholics drifted away from apostolic teachings. They have turned the papacy as its supreme authority, not God’s Word—but the gates of hell did not prevail.

Satan brought hell’s gate closer to the church

The phrase “If you can’t beat them join them” best applies to Satan’s strategy in luring people to his kingdom. Satan introduced pagan rituals in the guise of the rosary, saintly idols, and veneration of relics and the papacy itself.

These pagan traditions, in part, shaped Roman Catholicism as we know it today.

The early popes forced its false doctrines—but it did not prevail

In 1571, Martin Luther sparked the Reformation, God’s purging. The eyes of the King of England opened, and Protestantism returned the faithful back into apostolic preaching.

Protestantism RETURNED the FAITHFUL back into apostolic preaching.

Martin Luther at worms wanted to reform Roman Catholicism. They refused and excommunicated Luther that sparked the Protestant Reformation.

Four reasons why “protesters” left Catholic church

The hope for Roman Catholicism

God can redeem the catholic church if it is will. The Vatican must repent and align their doctrines with apostolic preaching.

In 2019, Pope Francis calls the idea of Mary a co-mediatrix of Jesus is foolishness. “She never introduced herself as co-redemptrix. No. Disciple,” the Pope said.

However, Pope Francis still holds non-scriptural traditions, and his role in the ecumenicism of religions, leading to a one-world faith is disconcerting.

The “Reform tradition” continues today

God continues to purify His church

Today, hell breaks loose in churches deceived by “equality and diversity.” For example, LGBTQ pastors ordained; female pastors like Beth Moore are a church leader preaching humanist-Christianity.

Millions are drawn to Binny Hinn’s prosperity Gospel, and many Christians fall for Joel Osteen’s moralistic deism. But the true church of Jesus will continue to rise above deception. The “Reform tradition” continues today.
