“Reverse Inquisition” can rid Church of Apostate Priests, Antichrist Bishops and Popes

devilcolorcropAt the Vatican’s Good Friday Liturgy, 2002, the Preacher to the Papal Household, Capuchin Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa, said the other religions “are not merely tolerated by God …. but positively willed by Him as an expression of the inexhaustible richness of His grace and His will for everyone to be saved.”

This, in short, is apostasy. 

St. John, the Apostle of Love, said: “Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is Antichrist who denies the Father and the Son” (1 John 1: 22). Thus, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, any religion that rejects Christ, according to Scripture, is an Antichrist religion.

Regarding heretical religions, for example, “Orthodoxy” and Protestantism, St. Paul tells us that false creeds are the “doctrines of devils” (1 Tim. 4: 1).

Editor’s note: By almost every account, much of what officially passes for Roman Catholicism today, is just another form of heretical, Neo-Protestant Christianity.

Catholic teaching is in shambles. Catholic unity is a myth. Catholic leadership is so weak and ineffective as to be laughable, if the matter wasn’t actually so deadly serious.

Our pope thinks he’s Barack Obama, many of our bishops think they’re Senator Harry Reed, and the few Catholics still remaining in the pews really don’t know what to think!

The people running the Catholic Church today are teaching things that are radically different and often totally opposed to the truths which were handed down to us by Jesus and the Apostles, while paying out multi-BILLIONS of dollars (of our money) in clerical abuse settlements and legal fees.

Divine truth and Catholic morality doesn’t change, so exactly what in the HELL has been going on for lo these many years?

Think: “Reverse Inquisition”

The question is no longer simply whether or not the 2nd Vatican Council was legitimate. Everything that has happened in the aftermath of that council, every church teaching that was “reformulated” during that time and everyone who subsequently rose to power in the post-counciliar church must now be subjected to the closest scrutiny – by the laity. 

Faithful Catholic lay persons can rely on the power of constant, fervent prayer, combined with the power of the purse to bring about the necessary “reform of the reform”. But until such a concerted effort actually comes together, don’t expect much.

ADL’s Foxman says he has no problems with the Son of God movie

Foxman

The ADL’s Abe Foxman is no fan
of Christianity or Jesus Christ.
Why does he like this movie?

“The story of the crucifixion and the way it has been used through the centuries has never been good for the Jews,” he said.

“Having said that, ‘Son of God’ is the most sensitive, caring depiction of the story of Jesus that I have ever seen. The producers have done everything possible to put the events into historical, political and psychological context.”

Foxman said that he thought “Son of God” could replace “Passion of the Christ” as the go-to movie for films about the life and death of Christ.

“It’s not perfect, but it’s done with the proper sensitivity and perspective and I would hope that for future generations, ‘Son of God’ will be the vehicle used to teach that part of history,” he said.

Foxman said that his organization met with Downey and Burnett and provided each other with “mutual guidance.”

Editor’s note: If Abe Foxman and the ADL approves of anything Christian, we can be reasonably certain that it has already been hopelessly compromised.

First, the devil – who happens to resemble Barack Obama gets edited out, and now Foxman is allowed to get in his “licks”! 

Don’t waste your time or your hard-earned money seeing this this highly edited, fatally compromised, main stream Hollywood mish-mash.

The “fix” is in!

Yes. Pope Francis did indeed call Jesus a sinner!

martin_luther-heresy

This particular heresy is more typical of Lutherans

Since God cannot commit sin, this is also blasphemy.

Pray for the pope. Pray for Catholics who don’t know heresy when they hear or see it proclaimed.

Read the pope’s words for yourself at the official Vatican News website.

(Do it now, before the story is taken down.)

For the record – here’s the pertinent text:

Vatican Radio) Christian life is not a spa therapy “to be at peace until Heaven,” but it calls us to go out into the world to proclaim that Jesus “became the sinner” to reconcile men with the Father. These were Pope Francis’ words during his homily at Mass Saturday at the Casa Santa Martha.

The Christian life is not staying in a corner to carve a road which takes you into heaven, but it’s a dynamic that encourages one to stay “on the road” to proclaim that Christ has reconciled us to God, by becoming sin for us. In his usual profound and direct way, Pope Francis focuses on a passage from the Letter to the Corinthians, from today’s liturgy, in which St. Paul very insistent, almost “in a hurry”, uses the term “reconciliation”five times.

“What is reconciliation? Taking one from this side, taking another one for that side and uniting them: no, that’s part of it but it’s not it … True reconciliation means that God in Christ took on our sins and He became the sinner for us. When we go to confession, for example, it isn’t that we say our sin and God forgives us. No, not that! We look for Jesus Christ and say: ‘This is your sin, and I will sin again’. And Jesus likes that, because it was his mission: to become the sinner for us, to liberate us. “

It is the beauty and the “scandal” of the redemption brought by Jesus and it is also the “mystery, says Pope Francis, from which Paul draws” zeal “that spurs him to” move forward ” telling everyone” something so wonderful “the love of a God” who gave up his Son to death for me. ” Yet, explains Pope Francis, there is a risk of “never arriving at this truth” in the moment when “we ‘devalue a little the Christian life”, reducing it to a list of things to observe and thus losing the ardor, the force of the ‘”love that is inside” of it:

Pope Francis: Jesus is a sinner…

“Jesus is a sinner, we take His own sins to Him and we tell Him, this is Yours and I’m going back out into the world to do it again. Jesus likes that.”

If this scandal is really Francis’ statement, then our Pope is a blasphemer and public heretic.

“No one knows what the heck this man is thinking. His confused statements are all over the place, and do not make sense at all. He is only able to throw punches in the air when there is no adversary around, but he is nowhere to be seen whenever his words would cause opposition from the world.”

“He manages to be, at times, Catholic when his official orthodoxy (in which we desperately want to believe, or at least we must say so) can be buried in the middle of a 50,000 words mega-statement, never mentioned by the press. But when there is some heated discussion, he invariably chickens out”.

“He shuts up about euthanasia, sodomy and destruction of the family, and the unprecedented affront of the EU report. There’s nothing he would not shut up about, if speaking would make him unpopular”.

Atheist reviewer pans “Son of God” movie.

sonobamadevil

A film so compromised even Satan failed to show up?

What would Jesus think of entertainment producers who translated his life story to the big screen in the hopes of a multimillion dollar payout? Does it make a difference if the film intends to bolster the faith of believers through shock and awe? What if it fails entirely at convincing doubters and skeptics of his worldview — or even at explaining why they should share his values?

All of the above applies to “Son of God,” a lavish hunk of sermon-tainment with all the gravitas of a Communion wafer. Married producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey had director Christopher Spencer and editor Robert Hall slice and dice their ten-hour History Channel miniseries “The Bible” (2013) — the one that supposedly cast a President Obama look-alike as Satan — into a 138-minute feature. (Perhaps to avoid further controversy, Satan does not appear in this film.)

Vatsecrets

Bill Donohue comments on tonight’s PBS “Frontline” 90 minute presentation, “Secrets of the Vatican”:

“Secrets of the Vatican” marks the 48th time PBS has addressed sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. Though this problem is practically non-existent in the Catholic community these days, and is rampant in the public schools, as well as in the Orthodox Jewish community, PBS has devoted a combined total of ZERO episodes on both.

More

Editor’s note: Frontline is the place to go to see everything negative – but not actually truthful – about the Catholic Church – historical, theological, political and otherwise.

Like a blind squirrel, they come across an occasional acorn of truth, but even those are  subject to their prevailing and constant bias against virtually all things Catholic.

Frontline ought to stick with subjects they actually understand, that are within their particular area of expertise. Their latest piece about Internet Social Media (Generation Like) for example, was very well done.

The mysteries of the Catholic faith however, remain way above their pay grade.

Don’t waste your time with this one – or pretty much ANY of their offerings – past or future – dealing with Catholicism. It will likely be a colossal waste of your time. 

A pertinent reader comment (by Steve) from the PBS site:

Lot’s of inaccuracies in this article. B16 did not orchestrate the Catechism definition of homosexual acts being deemed “disordered”; the CCC was written 12 years before his pontificate AND it merely explains Scriptural teaching that sex outside of marriage (regardless of what kind of behavior) is not what Christ taught.

Also, the sexual scandals referenced are decades old, and this article, like many others, merely rehash events that happened 20-50 years ago.

Ironically, the media and the “rehashing” then tries to promote homosexual acts, artificial birth control (FYI – cancer causing), etc. The hypocrisy is the media’s, not the Church’s.

If certain behavior violates Church teaching, even those who are ministers of the Church are subject to the same moral standard. Period.

Wouldn’t it be easier for the Church to simply say – “it’s alright go for it!”.

The illogical conclusions of these articles and poor journalism show nothing more than Catholic bigotry. Pope Francis, B16, JP2 or whomever, cannot change Christ’s teachings. And men, regardless of who they are, are sinners too.

That’s the “big news”.

8 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About ‘The Passion of the Christ’ Movie

Jim Caviezel

Upon the 10-year anniversary of its release, here are 8 things you might not know about Gibson’s moving, challenging masterpiece.

1. Some of the source material is controversial, too.
One of the main inspirations for co-screenwriters Mel Gibson and Benedict Fitzgerald was “The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ,” a tale in which poet Clemens Brentano chronicles the (supposed) visions of stigmatic German nun Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774-1824).

While it’s been speculated that Brentano wrote most of the book himself, with a Vatican investigation concluding that “it is absolutely not certain that [Emmerich] ever wrote this,” the book inspired some of the most striking images in the film, including the suspension of Jesus over the bridge after he’s first taken into custody, the torment of Judas by demons, Mary’s wiping up the blood of Jesus from the ground after his scourging and the dislocation of Jesus’ right shoulder so that his hand could reach the hole for the nail on the cross.

Serious misinterpretation of the Vatican II teaching on conscience

…the most destructive mistaken interpretation of the Second Vatican Council (one that we’ve lived with for 50 years) is the misinterpretation of the teaching on conscience. Certain forces in the Church took the occasion of the newly stated teaching on conscience, in the Declaration on Religious Liberty, to mislead people.

lEnfer

Now why they did that and what that’s all about is between them and the Lord . . . as the quote that has become so famous says, “Who am I to judge?” (which itself has been so outrageously misinterpreted by the mass media, and so-called Catholic elected officials).

But it was done; the Church’s teaching on conscience was misinterpreted, and the people were led astray on a very, very important matter — a matter that is destroying lives, leading to tremendous unhappiness, tremendous “un-blessedness.”

The current of philosophical thought that is at the root of all this confusion about conscience in the world and in the Church is that existence depends on the mind: “I think therefore I am.” Knowing, in fact, begins with reality, which exists and which is to be known by the knower.

The knower doesn’t make up what he or she claims to know; the knower needs to know reality. The knower needs to know the Truth, which is presented to the knower as a choice, as it said in the first reading of this past Sunday (Sir 15:15-20).

God presents what is good and bad to the knower, just as it says. And the knower, with his or her conscience, is to choose the good. The knower is not to choose what he or she would like; the knower is to choose the good.

And conscience is that truth-seeking radar that scans the horizon of reality, looking for Truth so that it can lock on to it, be changed by it, and be made heroic.

Damian Thompson highlighted the fascinating friendship between the Argentinian Pope Francis and English Episcopal ‘Bishop’ Tony Palmer.

I watched the video on the eminent Dr Thompson’s blog of Pope Francis making his ‘heart-melting’ ecumenical overtures to charismatic evangelicals and thought not a great deal of it.

I was disconcerted by His Holiness talking of Tony Palmer as a ‘Brother Bishop’ since as far as I was told, Anglican orders remain null and void, but I thought to myself, ‘Well, the spirit of Vatican II blows where it will…’

The signal was a letter signed by Secretary of State Pietro Parolin and delivered to every head of dicastery of the Roman Curia. The economic outlook for the Holy See in 2014– the Secretary of State wrote – requires «immediate measures to limit spending» on personnel. Which means: a hiring freeze, no overtime or work on Sundays; no replacement of staff going into retirement, except for the “generous” coverage employees already in a dicastery’s roster may be able to provide; and facilitating – in case of a pressing need – internal transfers. With the obvious exceptions.

Reader Comment: How could a Pope be so gullible as to be taken in by a “Word of Faith” swindler and a 2-bit “bishop” of unknown origins?

CCMPopeVideo

A very interesting and heartfelt video – but a stupid thing to do!

Pope Francis already has a long, troublesome history of associating himself with “shady” partners and substandard “media outlets”. Now he provides a 45-minute personal video to a heretical “Prosperity Gospel” group from Texas, where a pseudo-bishop, a big-money, “Name It and Claim It” television preacher, and a dubious collection of doctrines are the primary order of the day.

Humility is great – but how about exercising a bit of good old prudential judgment and theological discernment, for a change?

This is a another huge miscalculation, a public embarassment, and a failure of ordinary due dilligence that will be widely misappropriated and misconstrued, in order to discredit and malign the Catholic Church, for years to come!

Editor’s note: A huge number of our Protestant brethren … as well as the leadership of their particular denominations … according to their own generally accepted understanding of the Bible … continue to believe (and preach) that the Pope is the Antichrist.

Vatican II’s rapid, ill-considered changes: “Haste makes waste.”

ClownMass
…I came to see the futility of trying to repair something that, at bottom, is structurally unsound. Nowhere is the old adage, “Haste makes waste”, truer than when applied to the precipitous reform of liturgical rites and the books that contain them. In most places the liturgical landscape has become a dreary wasteland. The liturgical rites and books prepared so feverishly in the wake of the Second Vatican Council have been tried and found wanting.
There are, it is true, liturgical oases here and there, where the reformed rites are carried out intelligently, with dignity, reverence, and devotion — I am thinking of certain communities, monasteries, and parishes, the Communauté de Saint-Martin, for example — but these subjective qualities cannot make up for the objective flaws and structural weaknesses inherent in the same rites.

Arguing that a Catholic funeral is no place to offer “high praise” to the deceased, the Archdiocese of Ottawa has decreed an end to the longstanding practice of allowing eulogies at Ottawa-area Catholic funerals.

“Contrary to popular belief,” reads a February church decree, “eulogies or words of remembrance are not an official part of Catholic funeral rites.

“In the Christian funeral, we gather not to praise the deceased, but to pray for them.”

Eulogies are indeed a non-Catholic invention, and while many dioceses stay faithful to the no-eulogy rule, Ottawa’s Catholics have apparently lapsed in recent years.
