Jehovah Witnesses like to say that the Catholic Church was founded by satan. Of course they never have produced any documented proof of this false charge, but yet they still they repeat it over and over again.
Once again they have failed to comprehend their own Bible and the history of the Catholic Church.
Let us look at Matthew 12:25-26:
And knowing their thoughts Jesus said to them, "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. And if Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then shall his kingdom stand?"Apparently the Watchtower Society has never heard of 'Exorcisms'. You see, it is very well documented fact that the Catholic Church has, for centuries, performed successful 'Exorcisms' to defend against demonic entities.
Since the Catholic Church has 'cast out Satan' in hundreds of well documented cases, how then could Satan cast out Satan?
Also, since the Catholic Church has stood for almost 2000 years, isn't that in itself a direct contradiction to what Jesus Christ said in Matthew 12:25-26?
How then can the Catholic Church be Satanic?
