Are We Accursed or an Anathema? 1212

Are We Accursed or an Anathema?

Many Christian and Catholics consider Catholics to be Christians and blessed equally by God. Unfortunately, the Bible and the Catholic council of trent doesn’t agree.
Who ultimately has authority over the gospel you have faith in, the Bible or the Pope and bishops of roman Catholicism? If you believe that both do, you are accursed and an anathema!
One is wrong.

Here is the proof:

Under a curse.

I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. (Galatians 1:6-8 NKJV)

A formal curse by a pope or a council of the Church, excommunicating a person or denouncing a doctrine.

Canon 30, 6th session
CANON XXX.-If any one saith, that, after the grace of Justification has been received, to every penitent sinner the guilt is remitted, and the debt of eternal punishment is blotted out in such wise, that there remains not any debt of temporal punishment to be discharged either in this world, or in the next in Purgatory, before the entrance to the kingdom of heaven can be opened (to him); let him be anathema.
1 John 5:13
These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God. (I John 5:13 NKJV)

CANON XVI.-If any one saith, that he will for certain, of an absolute and infallible certainty, have that great gift of perseverance unto the end,-unless he have learned this by special revelation; let him be anathema.
Rom 11:29
For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. (Romans 11:29 NKJV)

CANON IX.-If any one saith, that by faith alone the impious is justified; in such wise as to mean, that nothing else is required to co-operate in order to the obtaining the grace of Justification, and that it is not in any way necessary, that he be prepared and disposed by the movement of his own will; let him be anathema.
Rom 4:5-6
But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness, just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works: (Romans 4:5, 6 NKJV)

If any one denieth, that, in the sacrament of the most holy Eucharist, are contained truly, really, and substantially, the body and blood together with the soul and divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ, and consequently the whole Christ; but saith that He is only therein as in a sign, or in figure, or virtue; let him be anathema.

And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the NEW COVENANT in My blood, which is shed for you. (Luke 22:19, 20 NKJV)

If the last supper wasn’t symbolic, then Jesus true flesh is made of bread and the cup was filled with blood while jesus still alive served it to His disciples.

The bible is the standard. We either honor it or we don’t. If we don’t, we aren’t following the will of Jesus and therefore aren’t Christian.

Jesus saves sinners. Our works are filthy rags incapable of participating in our justification. There is no purgatory or need for it. This i know, for the bible tells me so!
