1- When you enter some Catholic churches, you are confronted by a graphic
representation of Jesus, nailed to a cross, bleeding, suffering, and then
you are told that He went to this death of His own free will!
You read about Saints that whipped themselves; that wore hair shirts to
abuse their bodies. You even see, in this modern age, the Penitentes
of Mexico and New Mexico who continue this practice, even going so far as
to crucify themselves, men and women!
People who walk to a "holy" shrine on their knees, doing possible
damage to themselves, are lauded for having performed a "holy" act!
Children are beaten, starved, tortured and otherwise seriously harmed by
members of this cult following the Biblical admonition "Speare the rod and
spoil the child.
" There are also innumerable cases of the denial of blood
transfusions, denial of public education, and denial of * any * modern
medical treatment, all in the name of this cult's beliefs.

Does Christianity preach a form of sado-masochism? If it does, it is a
dangerous cult indeed!

2- This ritual of "Holy Communion" or the "Lord's Supper" has some overtones
that bother any right-thinking person. After all, the worshippers are told
that they are eating the "Body and Blood of our Saviour, Jesus Christ!"

Can it be very far from * ritual * cannibalism to * real * cannibalism?
This cult seems more and more dangerous!

3- The pre-occupation of some sects of Christianity with "demons" and
and "evil spirits" that, in their minds, seem to inhabit the whole
Universe, ready at the slightest opportunity to "possess" the bodies and
minds of humans, reeks of Diabolism! The more extreme sects even seem to
believe that this "Devil" is some sort of anti-God that has * all * power
over the world.

Can it be a very great step from being so preoccupied with devils to the
actual worship of them? One should worry about this!
