Test All Things: An Invitation to Examine Your Catholic Faith in the Light of Scripture
By Joseph Mizzi
PDF Download, 2005, 126 pages
Joseph Mizzi of the island nation of Malta has written this excellent primer on the differences between Roman Catholicism and Biblical Christianity. Mizzi was raised in a devout Catholic family, but was taken aback when his brother trusted in Jesus Christ as his Savior by faith alone and left the family religion. Joseph set about to study the Scriptures himself with the aim of persuading his brother to return to Catholicism, but also ended up accepting Jesus Christ as his Savior by faith alone.
This book avoids heavy theological jargon and appeals to the Catholic layperson in a winsome, loving manner. Scripture passages are plentiful. Chapter headings are as follows:
- What Will It Profit A Man?
- God’s Word Is Truth
- Built Upon Christ
- The Sacrifice Of Christ
- The Eucharist
- Jesus, Our Priest
- My Soul Magnifies The Lord
- One Mediator
- Salvation Is Not By Works
- Jesus Is The Way

“A friend of mine explained (Catholicism’s salvation system) in a simpler way. “God did his part. Now it’s up to you to do your part too.” I used to believe this, and did my utmost to “do my part” but never did I find rest and peace for my soul. How could I know whether I’ve done enough? If I die, would I go to heaven or would I go to hell? These doubts held me captive in a gloomy prison cell, and I know many Catholic friends who are in the same predicament.” – page 103.
Mizzi maintains the website below, which has a large amount of information for Roman Catholics who are searching for the truth about salvation by God’s grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone.
Just for Catholics
“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” – Ephesians 2:8-10
May the Lord bless you in your search for the truth.
