Today we would like to share an article by popular author, pastor and Bible teacher John MacArthur of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California. He is also the creator of the “Grace to You” media ministry.
In this article, MacArthur shares a candid and historically-based overview of certain aspects of the Roman Catholic Church. The article is quite long, but well worth reading (also available in audio). It is titled, “The Scandal of the Catholic Priesthood,” and it covers aspects of the Catholic Mass, the Eucharist, celibacy, nuns, monasteries and homosexuality… but in particular, the tragic plight of the priest. Roman Catholic priests are locked into what MacArthur calls a "terrible, terrible system.” They are not only victims of a deceptive and unbiblical religious system, but they are also victims of a cruel environment that fosters bondage to worldly lusts.
Let us all pray for their eyes and hearts to be open to the simple and freedom-producing gospel of Jesus Christ.
