Roman Catholicism Compared to the Bible – A Resource List

Dear Catholic Friend,jesu

Members of the Roman Catholic Church are taught their church is the “one true church” but they would be surprised to learn that many Catholic doctrines either disagree with or can’t be found in God’s Word, the Bible. The most important spiritual matter in which the Catholic Church and the Bible disagree is salvation. The Catholic Church teaches salvation comes through its sacraments and by obeying the Ten Commandments. In contrast, the New Testament teaches no one can possibly earn their way to Heaven but salvation comes freely to those who repent of their sins and accept Jesus Christ as their Savior by faith alone.

“There is none righteous, not even one.” Romans 3:10
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
“For the wages of sin is death but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9

After we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior, then we can follow Him in obedience.

Below is a list of 317 publications that are available at (unless otherwise noted) which compare Roman Catholicism to Biblical Christianity. “AMZ” indicates a book that’s still in print and can be ordered directly from Amazon or perhaps from a Christian book store. “TP” indicates an out-of-print book available either as a new or used edition from third-party booksellers at Amazon. One highly informative book on the subject is “The Gospel According to Rome” by James G. McCarthy, which compares the official Catholic Catechism directly with Scripture.

May the Lord bless you in your search for the Truth. Accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and seek out a Bible-teaching, evangelical church in your area.

7 thoughts on “Roman Catholicism Compared to the Bible – A Resource List

  1. Hi Tom,

    It seems to me that the main area where you and I disagree is the proper role of the Bible, and who gets to interpret it. Nowhere in the Bible does it claim to be the final authority. Believing that the Bible is the final authority without clear scriptural proof is evidence for my claim that the Bible needs an interpreter.

    1. Hi ed, As the early church became increasingly institutionalized, the “Good News” of simple, saving faith in Jesus Christ as Savior devolved into a complicated system of legalism and ritual of a magnitude that surpassed the Jewish Pharisees. People are impressed by powerful and impressive institutions. But it is through God’s Word and the work of the Holy Spirit that men receive the gift of faith; a faith so simple even a child could understand. On one hand is the wealthy, powerful Roman Catholic church with its gospel of sacramental grace and merit and its 1752 canon laws. On the other hand is a rag-tag bunch of evangelicals preaching the Gospel of salvation by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone, with no authority but the Word of God. Contrary to our worldly logic, it’s within the patchwork of evangelicalism that hearts are changed and people accept Jesus Christ as their Savior, not within the Roman Catholic church with its claims to authority patterned after the kings and potentates of this world. Yes, the work of the Holy Spirit is contrary to the logic of men. Catholic institutionalism has denied the simple Gospel and replaced it with its convoluted gospel of sacramental grace and merit and thousands of spurious traditions.
