The Roman Catholic Church developed many of its dogmatic positions over a long period of time. This is the beginning of a gradual departure from the true faith of the church and from the truth in the word of God, the Bible.
The Roman Catholic Church is beginning to form its doctrine and new laws for its followers.
The following is a list of some of the dogma that the Catholic Church has accepted over time.
310 A.D. Prayer for the dead, Prayer for the dead is one of the greatest acts of charity we can perform. Our prayers help them during their time in Purgatory, so that they can enter more quickly into the fullness of heaven.
320 A.D. Lighting of the candle, A votive candle or prayer candle is a small candle, typically white or beeswax yellow. Candles are lit for prayer intentions. To “light a candle for someone” indicates one’s intention to say a prayer for another person, and the candle symbolizes that prayer.
394 A.D. MASS, “Mass” is one of the names by which the sacrament of the Eucharist is commonly called in the Roman Catholic Church. The Mass or Eucharist is the central act of worship in the Catholic Church, which describes it as “the source and summit of the Christian life”. Many other sacraments are celebrated in the Mass.
432 A.D. Worship of Mary, Roman Catholic veneration of Mary, the mother of Jesus, which has grown over time in importance, is manifested not only in prayer but also in the visual arts, poetry and music. Popes have encouraged it, while also taking steps to reform some manifestations of it. Belief in the incarnation of God the Son through Mary is the basis for calling her the Mother of God. When they opened the tomb of Mary her body was gone. Catholic tradition says she rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven with both body and soul intact in what is called the Assumption of Mary.
500 A.D. The Priest begin wearing distinctive Robes, Vestments are liturgical garments and articles associated primarily with the Christian religion, especially among the Eastern Orthodox, Catholics (Latin Rite and others),Anglicans, and Lutherans. Many other groups also make use of liturgical garments; this was a point of controversy in the Protestant Reformation.
593 A.D. The doctrine of Purgatory was introduced, Purgatory, according to Catholic Church doctrine, is an intermediary state after physical death in which those destined for heaven “undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven”. Only those who die in the state of grace but have not in life reached a sufficient level of holiness can be in Purgatory.
