Defying Roman Catholicism

Defy Roman Catholicism
By Sonny L. Hernandez
Independently published, July 2022, 110 pp.

4 Stars

Pastor Sonny Hernandez was raised as a Roman Catholic, but eventually accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior by faith alone and renounced his membership in the RCC. He currently serves as as pastor of Trinity Gospel Church in Shelbyville, Kentucky.

In this short book, Hernandez addresses the major anti-Biblical doctrines of Roman Catholicism: the papacy, Mariolatry, and, most importantly, Rome’s false gospel of salvation by sacramental grace and merit.

Throughout the book, Hernandez compares the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) with Scripture and notes the irreconcilable differences.

There’s some excellent information here from Pastor Hernandez. He’s admittedly blunt and a bit “rough around the edges” with his forthright, polemical approach, which some might view as a drawback. However, remember that the Reformers had no qualms about “calling a spade a spade” when it came to the RCC.

  1. “However, remember that the Reformers had no qualms about “calling a spade a spade” when it came to the RCC.” I fully agree. The RCC has been called satan’s masterpiece, and should we be afraid of speak the truth, in love, clearly. We have to swim against the tide of our ecumenical times!

  2. Wow a book on RC published in 2022! Glad to hear there’s excellent info; I’m ok if the authors are blunt! Better that with telling the truth than hiding facts. Glad he took on the Soteriological/Salvation issue with RC’s gospel

    1. Thanks for the comments! Most of the new books examining RC-ism, like this one, are self-published. Yup, I’m also glad he focused on the RCC’s soteriology. Many Protestant apologetics books of the past focused on secondary doctrines or practices and either minimized or avoided the prime difference regarding salvation.
      I’m all for bluntness and unvarnished truth, but I get antsy if authors/presenters use Jack Chick-style polemics. Hernandez comes close a few times, but doesn’t cross the line.

      1. “ I’m all for bluntness and unvarnished truth, but I get antsy if authors/presenters use Jack Chick-style polemics” the same here! Jack Chick is too much for me; I use to eat it up as a young Christian
