Doctrines Of The Catholic Church, And Its Passage In The Bible

Many people, particularly non-Catholics, have always referred to Catholics as non-christians (pagans), believing that they follow man-made doctrines rather than the Bible. They don't realize, however, that the Catholic church has a reason for everything they do and whenever they do it.

Here are five things the Catholic church does that are also mentioned in the Bible, as well as some biblical references.


1. Christian Baptism

As a Catholic, the first thing you should do is receive baptism, which cleanses you of Adam and Eve's sins. Catholics baptize both young (infant) and old (adult). When the Priest, or Catchiest, administers the Sacrament of Baptism for the people, the Catholics are following in Jesus' footsteps (Matthew 3:16).


2. Reception of Holy Communion (Body and Blood of Christ)

Because Jesus is the founder of the Catholic Church, the Holy Eucharist is also celebrated whenever the Mass is said. Catholics commemorate the Lord's Supper of Jesus and his apostles by doing so (Matthew 26:17-30).


3. The Priest is not a married man.

During Jesus' life and ministry, we never heard that he was married or had a child. Catholic priests do not marry in order to focus on the church and its members, and Jesus did the same thing throughout his ministry.


4. The church's images and statues

The Catholic Church keeps images and statues of Mary, Joseph, and other church saints for reference (respect) rather than worship. The Catholics are remembering the book of Numbers 21:4–9 by doing so.

When the Israelites realized what they'd done, God told Moses to create a bronze serpent, which healed them whenever they looked at it.


5. The Rosary


The first part of the Rosary prayer comes from Luke 1: 26-3, when the angel Gabriel greets Mary, and the rest of the Rosary was created by the Catholic church after some research and prayer.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, hope you learned something new today.
