$1500 Reward for Scriptural Proof of Roman Catholic Dogma

Thousands of copies of the following article in leaflet form written by the late Dr. C.R. MacFaul have been distributed over many years in North America. And the writer has never been called upon to pay a single reward. Frequently Roman Catholics have taken the leaflet and with great confidence have said: "I shall secure a Bible, and be back in a few days for my reward." They have either not returned or have returned only to acknowledge that the doctrines of their church cannot be upheld by Scripture. Note: Scripture referred to has to come from the King James Bible.

It is therefore the sacred duty of every man faithfully to use this means which God has provided to learn the way of salvation.
By the Late Dr. C.R. MacFaul, M.A.

If you're a Roman Catholic reading this and see your need of biblical salvation, please read the following section below on how you can be saved and know it.

1 John 5:13 says: These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life ... Wouldn't you you like to be able to lie down tonight and go to sleep knowing that if you died during the night you would be, "absent from the body and present with the Lord" 2 Cor. 5:8? The way to be sure of salvation is to:

1. You must see yourself a lost sinner, ... For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Romans 3:23
because you are according to the bible, ... dead in tresspasses and sins; walk according to the course of this world; you have the ... spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience; The way you live now is ... in the lust of our flesh; you are one of the ... by nature the children of wrath; Ephesians chapter 2.

2. If the Holy Spirit has convicted you of your self-righteousness, are you willing to turn from your sins to the only one that never sinned? Your Pope sins, your Priest sins and you commit sins! The only way to get forgiven of your sins is a blood atonement and the unbloody sacrifice the Roman Catholic Church's Mass won't do it. The only way is through the blood the Lord Jesus Christ shed for you and that is included in the Gospel.  ... I declare unto you the gospel ... how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 1 Corinthians 15:1-4

3. Biblical Salvation is a free gift of God, ... the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. There is NO works involved in it. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

4. Are you ready to be saved and know it? The following verses will show you exactly how to be saved. My comments are in "()" parentheses.

That if thou (put your name here) shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart (NOT just your head) that God hath raised him from the dead, (this is the gospel as in number 2, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4) thou shalt be saved. For with the heart (NOT just your head) man believeth unto righteousness; (righeousness is sinlessness as far as God is concerned) and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (after you are saved, you just tell someone) For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: (all are saved one way now, John 14:6) for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever (put your name here) shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:9-13(will you call upon the Lord right now and ask him to save you the best way you know how? Sincerely tell Him that you know you are a lost sinner, you realize your church can't save you and ask the Lord to save you right now.

Remember 1 John 5:13 says: These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life ... If you were sincere when you asked the Lord to save you, then Romans 10:14 says ...How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed?

If you were saved because of this thesis, please write me and I'll send you some material to help you grow as a Christian.
