Matt Maher is Not Saved, Stop Singing His Music in Church



As big tech continues its crackdown on conservative blogs, our days on these platforms are numbered. Please subscribe to our mailing list and follow us on gab so that we can continue to stay in touch with you.

Modern Evangelicals are happily embracing a deceptive evil, and letting it creep into their churches. The evil is a counterfeit gospel, a counterfeit Christianity. The evil is the Roman Catholic Church, and it’s creeping in unawares, especially to young and impressionable minds, through worship music. Particularly, a Catholic singer named Matt Maher has become strikingly popular in Evangelical worship. With the compromise of today’s Evangelical leadership, this should come as no surprise. Al Mohler once said he believed that there would be millions of Catholics in heaven. Other Southern Baptists are declaring confessing, professing Roman Catholics saved (See here, and here). And it just about every contemporary Baptist church, you’ll hear “worship” music written by Roman Catholics.

Charles Spurgeon once said,

I question if hell can find a more fitting instrument within its infernal lake than the Church of Rome is for the cause of mischief. And your church will in its measure, be the same if bereft of the Spirit.

What a gem of truth. The rate at which Evangelicals are embracing this false spirit is alarming. Historically, and as a result of the conservative resurgence, Southern Baptists have withstood much of the apostasy that has befallen other denominations. For the most part, Southern Baptists have held a strong (but weakening) stance against homosexuality entering the church. At least, for now, you don’t find acceptance of homosexuality preached from the pulpits in most SBC churches. And most SBC pastors aren’t going to recommend to their congregation books written by homosexual activists, like Matthew Vines, that call themselves Christians.

So why do we make exceptions for Roman Catholics? Why do we declare them saved when they reject the true Gospel? Why do we worship to music written by Matt Maher, a Roman Catholic?

Evangelicals are being duped. Roman Catholicism, like any other false religion, is an abomination to God. It is absolutely asinine for Al Mohler to believe that there would be millions of Catholics in heaven. Does Al Mohler believe there will be millions of Mormons in heaven too? How about millions of practicing homosexuals? Would he want devotionals written by Matthew Vines to be studied in Sunday School at his church? What about prayers written by Glenn Beck to be read during worship service? Do you see the inconsistency?

Yet, Evangelicals everywhere are embracing Roman Catholicism as brothers and sisters in Christ. Russell Moore recently said in an article he co-authored with Roman Catholic, Marco Rubio, “both of us are of the Christian faith.”

Why do they believe this?

Roman Catholics cannot be Christians because they reject Jesus as wholly sufficient for the remission of their sins. Because of this, they practice idolatry regularly, through the mass, in which a priest supposedly summon Jesus out of Heaven to enter a wafer, and then proceed to eat and drink the physical body and blood of what they believe to be Jesus, present in the wafer. They practice idolatry through the veneration of Mary and the Saints in order to try to gain favor with God. They reject the fellowship of a true, local church that teaches and exposits the Scriptures authoritatively. And they practice idolatry by putting their faith in their man-made organization, hierarchical priest system, and sacraments for their salvation.

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. – 1 Corinthians 6:9-11

Let me make that clear: Do not be deceived, a practicing, unrepentant Roman Catholic will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. It doesn’t matter if a Roman Catholic “sounds evangelical” in his testimony. If he’s in the Roman Catholic Church and doesn’t see anything wrong with the idolatry he practices daily, he has not been justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

It doesn’t matter if Matt Maher says he’s a Christian or makes a “Christian-sounding” profession of faith. He is still a Roman Catholic, who practices idolatry, and is not repentant of it. It doesn’t matter if some of his music sounds okay. It doesn’t matter if he says he believes in Jesus. If he is unrepentant of his sin, he has not been regenerated.

But let’s go out on a limb here, and say that perhaps he is saved, and just hasn’t come to realize yet through sanctification that he’s caught up in a false religion. Sanctification is both immediate and progressive, therefore, it is possible for a Roman Catholic to be saved, and still (temporarily) be in the Roman Catholic Church. It still doesn’t matter. He’s still practicing sin, should be called to repentance, and by no means should he, or his worship music be played in a Bible-believing church. We wouldn’t do that for other unrepentant sinners. Why do we make exceptions for Roman Catholics?

We wouldn’t do that for other unrepentant sinners. Why do we make exceptions for Roman Catholics?

You are exactly what is wrong in the name of RELIGION! Who are you to judge? The Catholic Church has been around for 2000 years and will be around for a lot more. When you point the finger, there are three pointing back at you. Matthew Maher is saved. He is more holy than you who wrote this article. Who are you to say this? What is wrong with other religions? It is a sign of weakness . God loves a universal church. When you preach this, it shows how weak your faith is. Grace , Mercy and love is… Read more »


Amen…. Thank you for your response, Maria! After reading this article by Mr. Maples, I found his words and his hate speech alarming. Your response of peace and love is far more of a Christian attitude than this man's disturbing words, arrogant attitude and negative accusations toward Catholics and Matt Maher. We are all Christians. Jeff Maples does not speak like a Christ filled person and is filled with nothing but judgement and hate. Jesus would never say such awful things. I love my Catholic Faith and so do millions of Christians in this world. Mr. Maples' angry, ignorant words… Read more »


I'm chuckling. It's amazing protestants are ignorant of church history. I wonder if this person realizes there was only 1 church from the time of Jesus and the apostles to the reformation? And it was Catholic. I would not want to be these people on judgement day…

Fulton Sheen

Criticism of others is thus an oblique form of self-commendation. We think we make the picture hang straight on our wall by telling our neighbors that all his pictures are crooked.


Mr Maples makes some valid point focus on them on not get emotional. Apparently most here haven't read how Jesus condemned and chastised the religious leaders of his day the Pharisees and the Saudecees. He called them whitewashed tombs. Please read you Bibles and be enlightened by what God says and not the Pope the church or the Priests say.

Perry LaHaie

Find out what this means, "I desire Mercy not sacrifice."


First of all, this whole article is blasphemy and only talks about just hate hate hate towards Roman Catholics (Ephesians 4:29-32), and ESPECIALLY towards Matt Maher, because you’re discriminating a religion that Jesus Christ Himself built (Mathew 16:18). Jesus Christ said exactly in the bible that we must love our enemies and to love our neighbours (Mathew 5:43-48 & Mathew 22:34-40). You clearly did the opposite in this article, I’m sorry. God bless you!


I'm just wondering if we have any official comments from Matt Mather, that's I'm looking for. Are there any exact words on this? I just want to know from his own mouth, did he comment on what he believes yes or no?


Did Luther teach you that about Catholics before or after he removed books from the Bible? Kind of the pot calling the kettle black isn't it? And Mormons? Really? Both protestant church and Mormon churches were founded by a Man, in the last several hundred years, I'll stick to the original bride.


Should we read the entire Bible or the one Luther removed books from?


There are some holes in your church history also, my friend. The "One Church" you speak off had already split at least once by the time of the Reformation? And, for the record, no protestant would or should think that the protestant church started at the Reformation. A protestant does not remove the first 1500 of Church History from its own history. The reformation is just that, a REforming of something that already existed.

That said, I would not align with the approach of this article to be quite so agressive.


Mike, you seem have a particular sensitivity to this mistaken idea that Luther simply cut and paste his Bible together. The deuterocanonical books, which had been ADDED prior to the Reformation, and which were not part of the Hebrew Scriptures, were nonetheless translated by Luther and Luther still proclaimed these as having value, though not being part of the original canon from 4th century. Protestants are going back to that Canon, that was decided at a Council. Luther had issues with James, too, but he ultimately never removed it and agreed that it had Apostolic Authorship. Mormonism deviates and adds… Read more »


I agree, let's argue in love. Indeed Luther left James in the Protestant Bible, you have helped make my "simplistic" point, Luther was a man who chose what books he wanted his new followers to read, not under the authority bestowed upon St. Peter and the Catholic Church by Christ himself. That my friend is what you have in common with Mormons. There is no sensitivity in the truth, my objective was to point out that faith that only focuses on the Word should not have said Word dictated by man.


St Peter was a man also. Christ is THE Rock on which the Church is founded. I do not "follow" Luther, and despite his concerns about the book of James, I do not "follow" Luther in avoiding it.

Pope Francis also said (I think in 2017) that Luther "did not err".

The Roman Catholic "Word" is dictated by Rome and the Magisterium…are they not men? And if not, was it not men that declared them divine?

If, for salvation, *Roman* Catholics (as opposed to the semantically confused single, catholic, only, worldwide Church of which Master Jesus Christ knows He is the Head) need to believe something other than the four facts Paul said he was given as necessary for salvation (and he passed to the Corinthians in 1 Corinthians 15:1-8), then they disregard the fact that those beliefs are *adequate* for salvation (particularly, that Jesus' actual death is effective for salvation). We also have to call on the name of the Master and verbally confess Master Jesus (Romans 10:9-10). Those are the only two passages after… Read more »

I'm a former Catholic. Once I was really born again, it took me a year to see the grievous false teachings of that church. As I read the previous comments from Catholics, it is obvious you worship your church more than God, you put more allegiance to your church than checking out how the doctrines hold up to scripture. Please get the book, "Preparing for Eternity" by Mike Gendron. Your eternal future needs to be made sure!


That is exactly right, Kathy. Our faith is to be in Jesus ,and what he did for us on the cross, not in a church building , or denomination, or the pope. There are no denominations in the bible.

I am actually glad I went to Catholic school for awhile, and was always the child who questioned the things they taught us. They don't like it when you question the teachings of the church.

Kathy Wrobel

One more comment as far as Matt Maher being a Christian. He has written and sings many songs about Mary, Queen of Heaven. Undoubtedly, Mary lead an exemplary life, but she is not a "co-redemptrix" as the Catholic Church teaches. If you've acknowledge Jesus as your Savour, you can't have Mary as your co-redemptrix. Jesus said, "I am the Way, the Truth, the Life, no one comes to the Father, but through Me." Matt Maher is not truly born again, if he was, he would not be putting Mary on equal footing with Jesus Christ.


Speaking as a x- catholic, they can' t possibly be saved !!! If they understood, and knew the gospel, and ever read the Bible, then they would high tail it out the door , by passing the holy water, an never return !! They pray to Mary, the dead Saints, take the Lords name in vain, pray the rosary, call priest , "father" , pray for dead souls to get out of hell, light candles to pray for their dead loved ones ( at a cost ). Memorize prayers to pray over, over, believe that a priest can absolve their… Read more »

Who is he to judge? You are the very kind of quasi christian he is warning about you unread unbiblical wannabe! Jesus said "know ye not ye shall judge angels, yet you cannot judge the simplest of matters". You have a perverted view of love and the gospel.

John Taggart

Fulton Sheen is with silly Billy Graham, bouncing between the 2 extremes of REMORSE & CONTEMPT for the false Gospel and worshiping a christ after their own making!!!


No it wasn’t Catholic. Wake up and stop condoning false doctrine.


Jesus did not build the false doctrine of

The Catholic Church. They are the heretics not us

Trey Jadlow

Hi LEG (and Maria),

>Educate yourself on the Catholic doctrine, Faith and belief before you write with such uneducated vitrioI hate.

Would you be so kind as to educate me as to the correlation between congruous merit and one's ability to enter heaven?

I've found that most Roman Catholics know precious little about their own faith, but maybe you can help me to see where my thinking is wrong. Thanks.


Bigot… with a capital B… break out your ancestors KKK robes… they suite you.

Kathy Wrobel

Matt Maher has written praise songs to Mary, worship Mary? That's idolatry. Many, most Catholics will pray to Mary before considering going to Jesus. Again, idolatry. I'm a former devout Catholic, all my family for generations have been Catholic. I was taught all Catholic doctrine well and could recite the catechism front to back. One day, I actually found my way to simply trusting in the Savior Jesus Christ. A miracle, the blood of Jesus is sufficient to save anyone that will come to Him in simple faith, trusting His blood is sufficient to cover ALL my sibs! Believe me,… Read more »


If what this article says is true, then almost no one was saved between 300 and 1500.


“Charles Spurgeon once said,

I question if hell can find a more fitting instrument within its infernal lake than the Church of Rome is for the cause of mischief.”

There is one: Calvinism, which shares the same rotten, faithless root as Rome (that root being Augustine). It is the most subtly blasphemous system in existence in all of Christendom.
