There is a way that seemeth right but it is the way of death.

Outwardly Islam and Catholicism appear to be vastly different religions, however in reality they are both inspired by the same spirit.  Both hold to a religious and a political agenda.  Both have persecuted Christians over the centuries.  Both hold up cities Mecca and Rome as the centre of respective devotions.  Neither of which are mentioned as such in the Bible, if any both cities were centres of pagan worship.  Both hold to prayer beads and holy water as a means cleansing.  Both have been knows to use means of self harm as a means of mortification.  Both have a variety of expressions within their respective  religions, and yet both  look to individual men as the source of their inspiration.  The pope in one and Muhammad in the other. When in weakness both claim to be peaceful and ecumenical, However when in prominence will establish their own version of sharia law and will have no hesitance in imposing it upon all.  Both have used violence to push their agenda.  Both boast of the final victory of their religion against Biblical based Christianity.  The Christian always points to Jesus, whilst both Islam and Catholicism will point to a religion, an institution and everything but Christ.  For the Christian the Bible is the final authority on any matter of faith life and doctrine.  Catholics however will hold up their traditions which inevitable circumvent the very scripture that would give them light.Both give a fleeting gesture of believing in the Bible, However in reality deny it.  Both use the cloak of religion to mask their ungodliness.  Paganism is accepted and mixed in with it.  Whilst Moslems will circle the hajj and kiss the black stone in pilgrimage, so Catholics will make pilgrimages to sites of Mariology and kiss her idols.

Both it appears have a fascination with Mary, although unlike Islam Catholics will worship her as a queen of heaven.  However both recognised Mary as a women blessed “above all women”, rather as the scriptures says from “among women”.

Both have a devotion to a finite creature, Mary in Catholicism and Muhammad in Islam.  Neither can see past their idols.  Both accept these finite creatures as the perfect example to humanity, and when scripture and History shows otherwise they choose to reject historical and Biblical truths.  Whilst both reject that they actually offer such worship, both in practice and reality they most certainly do.    

Both have priests that issued anathemas and fatwas at all who would disagree with their views.  Both are steeped in a works mentality of good works which they hope will tip the scales on the last day in their favour.  Both have a form of purgatory, for the Moslems it’s a life in the grave and for Catholics a period of continuing punishment in a place of suffering.

When faced with the open invitation to approach God openly and freely, both inevitably will seek means far removed from God.   Both are steeped in rituals and methods which the Bible never mentions. 

Both have boasted that their writings can only be truly understood in a language which few can read.  For years Catholicism tried to keep the Bible written in Latin which even the priest could barely understand.   Many Catholics simply do not know Biblical history, which saw papal decrees on the burning of those who did translate the Latin into the common language.

Both like to claim that they were the light of civilisation, or as one Catholic recently boasted that the Bible was given to humanity by the Catholic Church.  Yet he forgot that the Old Testament was written and kept for hundred of years prior to the existence of the Catholic Church, and recognised as scripture even in the times of the apostles.  The Catholics look to their church as the author and interpreter of scripture, the Christian however looks to Jesus and the Holy Spirit.   

For the Moslem Jesus is demeaned as a mere failed prophet, and in Catholicism Jesus is reduced even further to a cookie which men eat.  Neither have a true relationship with Jesus.    When Offered a crown by God both are too busy looking elsewhere to accept it.  The saddest reality is that both are comforted in their religion, their sins are excused in their penances, kept in the dark concerning their real condition.  Whose trust is off men rather than that of God.  However unlike Islam Catholics are tied to the priests either though confession and penance or the need for their priests to magic Jesus into a cookie.  No cookie no Jesus.  Which is why the priests have such a hold over their congregations.
