What is the Church’s stance on how one is born sinful?

Q: What is the Church’s stance on how one is born sinful?

A: Death entered the world as a result of Adam’s sin … “Original Sin”.

The fact that ALL (even newly conceived infants) are subject to death proves beyond a doubt that ALL are affected by Adam’s original sin.

The flip side of this “Law of Sin and Death” is that one without sin is NOT liable to die.

Jesus was totally without sin, and no one … not even the devil … had the right to take his life from him.

This is why Jesus’ death on the cross served to destroy Satan’s evil dominion over mankind.

Satan overstepped his authority by having his Jewish and Roman minions crucify the sinless and innocent Christ … once again incurring God’s wrath and his judgment … and (among other things) forfeiting all that he had earlier gained from Adam’s fall.

Jesus was raised from the dead, given all power over Heaven, Earth, death and Hell, and appointed as the new and sinless head of all mankind.

It is only because of this new and perfect human leadership that God is willing to offer peace and consolation to those who are willing to swear faithful allegiance to Jesus, our savior … typically via Baptism … and our subsequent faithful, active, and charitable participation … in all of the work, worship, sacraments, and devotions of his universal (Catholic) Church.

Does the church that Peter built still exist till this day?

Q: Does the church that Peter built still exist till this day?

I am wondering since he has the words imparted right from the mouth of Christ himself. There are just too many churches that claim to be the true church.
                         
A: Click the link for the true story about St. Peter, and precisely where his bones are buried.

Then you’ll have no doubt that Jesus wasn’t kidding, when he said,
“On this Rock I will build my Church.”

God’s Exquisite Timing

Q: What significance did the Bible prophet Ezra have?

A: After the pagan King Cyrus suddenly offered to finance the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the Temple, and return all the sacred Temple vessels, which had earlier been carried off by the Babylonians (this decision by Cyrus was a great miracle … second only to the miraculous conversion of the Roman Emperor Constantine, in new testament times) Ezrah volunteered to get the work done.

This set everything in place for the advent of Jesus, the Messiah, a few hundred years later.

God’s timing is always exquisite.

Ecumenical Sarcasm

Q: Okay, Catholics, are we so deceived?

So we have been deceived for 2000 years. Yes, that’s it! God’s deceived us for 2,000 years! After the Apostles, BAM! ALL LIES.
                 
A: Lets see now …

Jesus gets himself crucified … dies … is buried … rises from the dead … personally establishes his Church … promises to bless it and keep it forever … with all his divine power and might … and it lasts only about 40 years.

Lights out! Over. Done.

Then he makes the world wait 1500 years for the “true faith” to be invented by a bunch of guys whom he never trained, and who never even knew him.

But wait … in the mean time … his original “failed” Church … the Catholic Church … somehow manages to overcome hundreds of years of brutal persecution … faithfully preserve all his divine truth … and successfully convert most of the known world to Christianity.

What kind of failure is that?

Is God confused … or is it those guys who showed up 1500 years late … equipped with nothing except a borrowed holy book … a book whose meaning they haven’t yet been able to understand … or agree on?

What did Jesus REALLY mean when he said this?:

Mat 28:18 And Jesus coming, spoke to them, saying: All power is given to me in heaven and in earth.
Mat 28:19 Going therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost.
Mat 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. And behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world.

                        
Is Jesus God … or is he a powerless liar?

Downers Grove, IL –

These days, the average American mother has about two children. But Daria Skrzypczynski is not your average mom.

The former Westmont resident who now lives in Downers Grove has not only given birth to and raised nine children, she has also home-schooled all but one.

“Some people think I’m crazy, but now that I have functioning adults, people give me more credibility,” said Daria, whose three boys and six girls range from 3 years to 22 years old .

Brazil’s Pro-Life Movement Stops Abortion Legalization

Spirit & Life

Human Life International e-Newsletter 
Volume 03, Number 22 | Friday, May 30, 2008     

This week’s guest columnist is Mrs. Magaly Llaguno, the Executive Director of Human Life International’s Hispanic Division and a prolific author. She has worked for HLI for more than 25 years and has been instrumental in helping to “plant” the pro-life movement in virtually every part of Latin America.

Brazil’s Pro-Life Movement Stops Abortion Legalization
         
With great joy we received the news at Vida Humana Internacional, HLI’s Hispanic Division in Miami, that a piece of legislation (bill 1135/91) which would have legalized abortion on demand throughout Brazil, did not make it out of the Safety and Family Commission. This pro-life triumph was possible thanks to the very excellent pro-life movement that exists in Brazil and in particular to the efforts of Dr. Humberto Vieira, HLI’s national representative in that country. Dr. Vieira, who is founder and president of Providafamilia, has been involved with HLI for over 18 years. He has managed to create a magnificent pro-life network throughout Brazil that is well-organized and united.
              
The vote that stopped abortion legalization was a unanimous 33 to 0. The four pro-abortion legislators on the Commission left the session at the time of the vote, but two of them were substituted by other legislators who in turn voted for life! According to pro-life leaders, many parliamentarians were crying, embracing each other and rejoicing over this triumph. Now the bill will be voted on in the Commission of Constitution and Justice, where victory is expected. However, we ask for prayers for the ultimate defeat of this bill.
              
The strategy devised by Dr.Vieira and his great team was two-fold: One group lobbied the legislators and another one worked with the electoral grassroots of the parliamentarians. It was an historic vote for Brazil and the pro-aborts were surprised and in disarray! Dr. Maria das Dores Guimarães Dolly, a pro-life attorney from Sao Paolo, traveled to Brasilia every week to lobby the legislators. Needless to say, the support of the Brazilian Bishops Conference and of many of the individual bishops themselves was crucial. Brazil’s bishops have recently embarked on a pro-life educational campaign that will reach out to all parishes throughout the entire country.
               
Representatives Jose Aristodemo Pinotti and Cida Diogo initially said they would vote in favor of the abortion law but withdrew before the vote was taken. Pinotti is a medical doctor, and in the 70’s he was a member of the Board of Trustees of the Rockefellers’ Population Council, an organization that is behind population control efforts throughout the world.[1] In the letter he wrote to a Brazilian pro-life leader, dated May 14, 2008, Pinotti claimed to be “against abortion” and only in favor of its “regulation.” Yet according to his curriculum vitae on the website of the Brazilian Chapter of the Jewish Medical Association, he is (or has been) a member of the board of directors of the International Projects Assistance Services (IPAS). IPAS is an American company based in Chapel Hill, NC that manufactures abortion equipment and promotes its legalization. [2] Pinotti is also a past president of the terrible abortion promoting organization called the “International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics” (FIGO, 1988-1991); Pinotti presided over its XII World Congress in 1988.
               
It would seem that there are some foreign anti-life organizations behind the efforts to legalize abortion in Brazil as is the case in other Hispanic countries. The main example of this type of international pressure is Nicaragua, where abortion was outlawed in 2006 and yet those pressures still continue. Nevertheless, in spite of whatever anti-life organizations and foundations may be behind the effort to legalize abortion in Brazil, the pro-life movement of that country is now a huge force to contend with.

Robert Crown Center is a population control organization

From the Aurora Beacon News:

A well known health and sex education center that serves Chicago area students  plans on opening a satellite office in Aurora this summer to address what some say is a “real need” in the community.

The Hinsdale based Robert Crown Center for Health Education expects to start working with Aurora’s youths in June, according to Kathleen Burke, the center’s chief executive officer.

Now the organization is just waiting for the Aurora City Council’s approval of its lease in a near East Side building. 

The Robert Crown Center is a population control speciality center.

Coming to Aurora is a natural move to help curb the growing Hispanic population.  It is unfortunate, but the leaders of the Hispanic community will not speak out against abortion, parents rights and now … population control. 

Will Rep. Chapa Lavia speak out against the opening of the center?  I doubt it as she has supported abortion and is against parental rights.

Population control is the real goal of those who forced abortion on the American public.

There was a small booklet put out by Planned Parenthood back in the late sixties where it was plainly addressed.  If you wanted to control the population you had to legalize abortion. Contraceptives  alone would not bringabout the results they wanted.  Unfortunately I lost the booklet, but I remember that message very well.

Make your voices heard.  This is another case of overstepping parental rights and responsibilities.
