A History of the Change of Roman Catholic Doctrine

In light of the election of the new Pope, I wanted to post this to show the development and change of the Roman Catholic Doctrine over the years.  The countless Roman Catholic doctrines that are in direct opposition to the Bible, especially their denial of the doctrine of Justification by faith alone in Christ alone, prove the Roman Catholic church to be a false religious system.  Not only is their doctrine heretical, their practice is an abomination.  In Latin America, and especially here in Cuzco, the gross idolatry, church sponsored fiestas where all the people get wasted, syncretism with the pagan Andean religion and the horrendous hypocrisy bring out the true colors of Rome and it's false anti-christian religion.

607 Boniface III made first Pope

709 Kissing the Pope’s foot

786 Worshiping images and relics (this is breaking the 2nd commandment)

850 Use of “holy water” begun

995 Canonization of dead saints

998 Fasting on Fridays and during Lent

1079 Celibacy of the priesthood

1090 Prayer beads

1184 The Inquisition

1190 Sale of Indulgences

1215 Transubstantiation (The conversion of the substance of the Eucharistic elements into that of Christ’s body and blood; a doctrine of the Greek and Roman churches).

1220 Adoration of the wafer (Host) (the worshiping of a piece of bread that on has become convinced is the Lord Jesus Christ)

1229 Bible forbidden to laymen

1414 Cup forbidden to people at communion

1439 Doctrine of purgatory decreed

1508 The Ave Maria approved

1534 Jesuit Order founded

1545 Tradition granted equal authority with the Bible

1562 Changed the 10 commandments (Exodus 20) by removing the 2nd commandment, which is, “do not make for yourself graven images”, and splitting the 10th into two to keep 10 commandments.

1854 Immaculate Conception of Mary

1864 Syllabus of Errors proclaimed


1950 Assumption of the Virgin Mary (the belief that the Virgin Mary ascended bodily into heaven without dying)

1965 Mary proclaimed “Mother of the Church” Since the above, changes and additions have been made as sustained by history.
The Bible does not change. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever.  Hebrews 13:8. Nevertheless, throughout history, the Roman Catholic Church and its doctrines have continued to change and can be expected to continue to change.

That's why the Church needed to be reformed according to the Word of God.
