Spare the Children from Meaningless “Sacraments”!

7/11/2015 789 Comments


From definitions, to references used, to artifacts imbued with mystical power that are all attached to money, including their so-called sacraments, the Roman Catholic Church sounds like a ball of confusion. Let us examine what they call “confirmation.” What is to be confirmed and when?

But how should we define terms first? Is it anyway we like it? A disciplined Christian would go as far back and refer to the Authority on Life and check on His words.

Notice that this source, Modern Catholic Dictionary, in defining the term, “confirmation,” arrogates unto itself the authority to redefine others. May we highlight the terms at issue for easy reading - 


“Laying on of hands” is not “confirmation,” according to the Bible. When the Lord Jesus laid His hands upon the children which action the apostles were trying to forbid, it was not a rite nor sacrament so that the apostles were even trying to prevent the children. If it were a sacrament or a religious rite, the apostles, instead of preventing the children to come close, must be assisting them! Logical?

MATTHEW 19:13-15 
13 Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. 
14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. 
15 And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.

Again, “laying on of hands” is not “confirmation,” according to the Bible. It is the act of giving the recipient the trust and honor necessary for his God-given office.

NUMBERS 27:18-20 
18 And the LORD said unto Moses, Take thee Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay thine hand upon him
19 And set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation; and give him a charge in their sight. 
20 And thou shalt put some of thine honor upon him, that all the congregation of the children of Israel may be obedient.

It is in this very sense that the Apostle Paul laid his hands upon Timothy.

II TIMOTHY 1:6 
Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.

I TIMOTHY 4:14 
Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.

You do not lay hands on children! How can such delicate trust and honor be conferred to children? Consider the age as discussed by Michelle Arnold -

Following recognition by the Holy See, the [USCCB] has decreed that the age for conferring the sacrament of confirmation in the Latin rite dioceses of the United States will be between "the age of discretion [‘considered to be about age seven’] and about sixteen years of age.’" (www.usccb.org)

This is really laughable! How can a child at seven be capable of the trust likened to what Joshua and Timothy received? Even if you say 12 or even 17, should you lay hands on them?

Here’s one of two children, both 12 year olds, that were confirmed by Pope Francis at a ceremony in St Peter’s Square in Rome (Ref: Stephen Rogers, Irish ExaminerDotCom, 4/29/2013).


The doctrine of “confirmation” that they refer to as one of their “sacraments” is one of many inventions of the Roman Catholic Church (RCC). According to Catholic authorities, it is “not strictly necessary for salvation” but “there is a grave obligation to receive it in due time.” From this definition we are sure that this is an invented teaching of the Council of Trent.

Modern Catholic Dictionary Page 122


COUNCIL OF TRENT


In contrast to Catholic teachings, every teaching or commandment of Christ is essentially necessary for salvation. These are imparted to a believer by a believing preacher without costs.

JAMES 2:10 
For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

While the RCC is saying that their “sacrament of confirmation is not strictly necessary for salvation,” the truth is that all the teachings of Christ and His commandments must be observed, because defiance in one will make one guilty of all.

MATTHEW 28:20 
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

And note that “all teachings” of Christ must be shared without costs! Without costs! We underscore this fact because for every movement the Catholic priests undertake, there is payment. In other words, salvation in the RCC is to be had with monetary considerations – always. The Apostles of Christ preached the gospel freely. They did not require any payment for Church services.

II CORINTHIANS 11:7 
Have I committed an offense in abasing myself that ye might be exalted, because I have preached to you the gospel of God freely?

In contrast, the Catholic Church requires payment for their sacraments like “confirmation” and baptism. According to them “confirmation” is done in three ways: 1) Laying on of hands; 2) Anointing with chrism; and 3) Prayer. As in their other sacraments, there is again an artifact they attach so that money can be paid: Chrism. Without a Catholic bishop’s blessing, there is no consecration for a mixture in their sacraments. Show money first, then consecration comes.



Is this what the Bible says? “Anointing with chrism” is certainly not biblical. There is no such thing as “consecrated mixture of olive oil and balsam” used in any Christian rite of the first century! In its place is the strengthening of faith of one through the help of the Holy Spirit. Obviously, this is not acquired in the invented manner of the “sacrament of confirmation” of the Catholic Church!

Only one translation of the Bible in the New Testament uses the word ‘balsam’ in only one occasion when Mary used it on the feet of the Lord Jesus Christ. This clearly shows that it is not a sacred object or by any implication a “chrism” used by the 1st Century Christian church.

JOHN 11:2 (ETHERIDGE TRANSLATION) 
It was that Mariam who anointed with balsam the feet of Jeshu, and wiped (them) with her hair, whose brother this Loozar was who was sick.

Let us refer to the Bible and learn from it. Faith is the very issue when one gets baptized. Faith is also the issue with every Christian after that. It is faith that should be strengthened as one matures because faith is not a one-shot process. What will you confirm then? One’s membership in the Catholic faith?

Here are conversations that showcase what we were saying all along (Ref: Zoe Ryan, “Views conflict on what age to confirm,” National Catholic Reporter, 5/13/2011). In conflicts about what age to confirm, younger age is the restored order, Catholic authorities decided. The following excerpt outlines the issue.


We quote here two authorities: Joseph Martos and Joe Paprocki. The first is a sacramental historian and an author of two books on Catholic sacraments. The second teaches an eighth-grade confirmation class and was a director of religious education.

The gist of Martos’ comments is that children are still children. They are confirmed in early adolescence and then they stop going to church, he observes. Here’s Martos on confirmation -

We have this ceremony ... and it doesn’t occur when it’s at a real change in the person’s life…. In other words, the problem is not theological. The problem has to do with the nature and purpose of ritual, especially rites of passages and initiation rituals.

Unless people, when they’re confirmed, are actually making a passage in their life, like from being not Catholic to Catholic, not married to married ... then there isn’t any meaning in the sacrament of confirmation, because the meaning comes from what’s going on in the person’s life at the time.

Meanwhile, confirmation is more to keep them in the Catholic faith, suggests Paprocki. However, he said confirmation needs to be looked into as far as children are concerned. Here is what he said in Zoe Ryan’s interview -

I think that tends to be the biggest fear: How will we keep them if we don’t have the sacraments? The problem with that is the sacrament of confirmation shouldn’t be a carrot on a stick. It shouldn’t just be the way we keep them. If we can’t keep them without confirmation, then I think there’s something wrong there. I think it would force us to reevaluate and look more closely at what we’re offering them.”

See? Even those charged to work on children in the Catholic institutions are worried sick of what they are doing. The biblical ways by which a Christian is strengthened in faith are:

1) Through exhortation and endurance in tribulations through faith.

THE ACTS 14:22 
Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

This is affirmed by the Apostle Paul among the Romans.

THE ROMANS 5:1-5 
1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 
2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 
3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience
4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 
5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

2) Through vigilance and prayer that strengthen the weaknesses of our flesh.

MATTHEW 26:41 
Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

THE ROMANS 8:26 
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

3) Through the practice of unfeigned love that strengthens Christians.

EPHESIANS 4:16 
From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

COLOSSIANS 3:14 (RSV) 
And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.

All these biblical ways to strengthen a Christian will not apply to a seven-year-old child! He has still some growing up to do, some experiences to undergo. The faith of a Christian is revealed by time. The Bible confirms that.

I CORINTHIANS 3:13 
Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.

Time is a very important essence in the strengthening of one’s faith. One has to grow through the years as one may experience what can threaten faith, what can derail it, as well as what can strengthen it. And time may confirm again and again one’s faith as long as one holds on to the teachings of Christ.

HEBREWS 5:12
For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

For this reason, the Lord Jesus Christ tells Christians to endure until the end.

MATTHEW 10:22 
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

How can a child of seven years experience all of these wonderful teachings of the Lord? Unless Stephen “Steve” Shott was ordained as priest when he was still seven!

More laughters to come, God willing.

  30. After having given them the fake baptism in the infancy, they are "confirming" them that they indeed received the false baptism by doing them the "kumpil-mation".
    Another business approach that will never lead to salvation. Baseless practice. Impertinent.

    May the LORD keep blessing this blogsite of MrContraveryX so that many more
    darkened minds be lead to the knowledge of truth. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

  32. The doctrine of “confirmation” that they refer to as one of their “sacraments” is one of many inventions of the Roman Catholic Church (RCC). According to Catholic authorities, it is “not strictly necessary for salvation” but “there is a grave obligation to receive it in due time...Hahaha remember that all teachings came from Jesus Christ are necessary and essential to salvation, this proves that this is one of the many invented doctrines of RCC..

    Laying the hands to a child (7 years old) is not like Timothy and Joshua. A seven year old has a lot more to experience. Sacraments is not for edifying the faith.

    Also, all the works of the Roman Catholic Church involves money which is erroneous teaching. As the Apostle Paul said, "I have preached to you the gospel of God freely?" Without cost.

    Can't wait for the next one.
    Thanks be to GOD and TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!

  57. Another wisdom unveiled in this blog! There's no sacrament of confirmation. What is there to confirm on anyway? You can only keep your Catholic faith when you undergo this kind of false teaching, but never will manifest Christian faith into it! Time will confirm if you grow up in faith if you hold on firmly to the doctrine of Christ. May we all grow in Christian faith. Thanks be to God and to Lord Jesus Christ. We ❤️ You Bro. Eli.

It was never Biblical and they admit that it was regardless of salvation! It is senseless and illogical to say that laying of hands was confirmation. I really pity the people who were deceived by the shameless priests including Shott. People were handing money for their invented doctrines yet the Lord Jesus Christ preached the gospel freely!
    Thanks be to God for this knowledgeable blog

  104. I find it funny how God fearing Christians have a problem with a practice of the Catholic church that is used to bring man closer to God and work towards living a good life. How easy it would be for man to sin even in a minor way if he did not have to humble himself before God in the presence of a priest to confess their sin. I'm not saying that God does not forgive in the absence of a priest, but you can clearly see that this is an easy way out for many. Instead of looking at the areas of other people religious beliefs and trying to make a case against it, maybe as Christian's we should be looking at the good in that practice and finding where Jesus resides in it. As for this article, saying that because the RCC made this up it is a negative thing, how about the fact that it makes us Catholics committed to Jesus and his teachings. Why as brothers in Christ do we constantly need to find flaws in others way of serving the Lord. Instead let's pray for one an other, and love each other as our Lord comanded. Thanks be to God.

    1. How can you say that Catholics are committed to Jesus and his teachings when you have unnecessary practices and false doctrines? Jesus preached to spread the truth and when they are caught by their lies they play safe. Open your eyes and dont hide bro read your bible and ask for guidance, sometimes the word of God will hurt our ego for the sake of our salvation and to save us from the flowery words of false preacher.

Thanks be to God for this blog. It really has a very good explanation about the topic being tackled. Thanks be to God.

  124. Almost three years ago, I wanted to strengthen my Catholic faith because many are defaming it. From being a member of Catholic Youth Ministry, Charismatic Youth Ministry, then, Lectors' Ministry. To become a member of the lectors' ministry, one has to be "confirmed". So, I did. Paid the price, Php 200.00. Undergone the seminar. Then, the installation, around last week of May, 2012. I felt happiness in my heart whenever I read the 'leccionario" since there were Words of God written there. But I was looking for more holiness in all things I was doing then, and still, there were so many questions in my mind not clearly answered.

    Nevertheless, thanks be to GOD! After few months, someone invited me to attend Mass Indoctrination. All the questions were one by one answered with God's help and mercy. I left RCC as a lector minister and embrace the TRUTH came September of the same year. Thanks be to GOD for the HIGHEST calling. I know and CONFIRM now, with God's help and mercy, the CHURCH OF GOD which I will offer my entire life to be a little instrument of GOD's ministry. Thanks be to the Father, to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

  129. The “sacrament of confirmation" is not strictly necessary for salvation according to Modern Catholic Dictionary page 122, and requires payment. Confirmation is another absurd doctrine of Roman Catholic. All teachings of Christ are essentially necessary for salvation and must be shared without costs.

  131. For those people who find this blog "Funny", i might tell you i find it more "Scary", look at this RCC practices and think again.
    xWorshipping idols in the absence of True God
    xWorshipping the Cross where our Lord Jesus sentenced to death
    xBaptizing the innocent or unsinned children
    xRepetitive prayers
    x unneccessary sacrament etc.
    How horrriffic....

  136. I feel like I should point out to all the people reading this that this is a misrepresentation of what the Catholic Church actually defines a sacrament as, especially since this does not quote the Roman Catholic Catechism (the book summarizing the teaching of the Church) and instead defines Confirmation as the"matter," which in this case is the laying on of hands and the chrism oil. A sacrament such as confirmation or baptism is made up of two components: the matter and the form. The "matter" is a kind of outward symbol of a spiritual reality, which Catholics call the "form." In confirmation, one is anointed with oil like David was anointed by Samuel, because as Samuel was chosen by God to be king we are all chosen by God for a mission. But that is not confirmation, it is only a symbol used during it. Confirmation is an expression of faith, a way for a youth to proclaim the Catholic faith as his/her own, and not just their parents', and the spiritual reality (the form) is that God gives us grace through his Holy Spirit that we might carry out our mission as his disciples.
    Most churches offer confirmation to teens around the age of 16... but t is open to younger ages if they are deemed mature enough for it, and it has to be done with the full will and consent of the teen, because they are the one proclaiming the faith as their own. And to those who say it's not in the bible, look at Pentecost and David's anointing... those are not "confirmation" but they are things from which the idea was derived. If you read this thanks and feel free to ask questions or challenge this.

I only remembered that my godfather spanked me during the ceremony ask a sign that i received the confirmation. And that I keep of receiving from him Christmas gifts every december 25 until I reached the age of 12. It was at St. Paul of the Cross parish church in SSS village Marikina.

  164. Thanks be to God for the wonderful pronouncement of truth from Mr. Controversy.

    Experiences and biblical analysis tells us truth and makes us stand firm in to the faith which God given us to all saints in the Church of God.

    Actually, when I was a grade one student, I want to join to the confirmation rites although I'm not totally known about the true doctrines of the Lord even my father come together in attending prayer meetings and worship services but as time goes by when I understand that the seven sacraments involving CONFIRMATION is not Biblical, I don't want to join but Catholic teachers and classmates insist to join the confirmation rites, asking monetary contributions, gifts and etcetera for the sakes of highest grades in so-called Character Education with a foundation of Catechesis also in high school, they're insisted to join but I refuse and that's a result of dispute with Catholic faith. Luckily, Ms. Bantog, an avid listener of Bro. Eli Soriano agrees on what she hears from him that she applies in her teachings in school so that she treated me as the one of favorite student that she said that I'm a student with a more conscious in life.

    What does it mean? In my experience, the sacrament of confirmation is for their own sakes like getting high-grades, getting close to teachers, etcetera. The worse is, it is the source of income for their own benefit and not in the other's sake of salvation.

    The seven sacraments including CONFIRMATION was made NOT FOR THE SAKE OF SALVATION TO OTHERS BUT FOR THEIR OWN BENEFIT AND WEALTH. The Bible tells us that preaching the gospel is free from contributions mentioned in Matthew 10:8 and II Corinthians 11:7.

    Edifying in faith is in by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ with works like unfeigned love, maintaining a clean and unoffending conscience, holiness and charity and others.

    To say that the confirmation is for the edification is not true. It is non-sense.

    Catholics must read this to open their hearts and minds and free from the power of evil made by the god of the world.

    Thanks be to God.
