Pro-Israel writers almost get it right … but leave mistaken impression about Judaism that isn’t quite Kosher.


…the relationship between the Jewish people and God is one that commonly elicits strong (and divergent) reactions. But what does the Church have to say about this relationship? In particular, are the Jewish people still “chosen,” maintaining a special relationship with God? And, if so, does this therefore mean that they are already in a salvific covenant with him such that they have no need of Christ and his Church?

Editor’s note:

First of all, today’s Jews (and Judaism) have no central governing authority, and no comprehensive, systematic, universal  theology, doctrine, or creed. Most cannot even agree on which portions of sacred scripture they choose to affirm … or deny.

This means that, Chosen People or not … many, many Jews are on the wrong side of things when it comes to routine matters of natural law and the Christian faith in general, and that means they are almost totally at odds with the authentic teachings and principles of Catholicism.

It also means that Jews no longer fit the conventional (and erroneous) stereotype that many Christians have in mind … and they haven’t, for almost 2000 years.

In short, Catholics must be very careful when it comes to routinely supporting those who they perceive to be “the Jews” … and/or Israel … since proper identification of the “Chosen People” is (and always has been) very problematic.

Revelation 2:9  I know thy tribulation and thy poverty: but thou art rich. And thou art blasphemed by them that say they are Jews and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

The key point is that today’s authentic People of God … those “marked for salvation” and presently living under a truly salvific covenant, thanks to Jesus Christ … are Christians. Not the “Chosen People” of Israel.

The most sensitive and practical thing a Christian can do for any non-Christian is to try to clearly make that point, in a respectful, loving, and non-discriminating way.

Unfortunately, many liberal, “Jews don’t need to be evangelized” post-Vatican II Catholic church hierarchs have failed to properly preach and teach this essential truth, to the continuing detriment of Jew and Gentile, alike.

Freemasonry NOT compatible with Catholicism

MASONS

Twelve (12) popes have collectively issued twenty-three (23) condemnations of Freemasonry on the grounds that Freemasonry’s teachings are incompatible with Catholic faith and morals.

Freemasonry is a religion of naturalism which denies the divinely revealed truths of the Catholic Faith.

Freemasonry teaches its members that they may attain eternal life by practicing the principles of Freemasonry, without any need to believe in Jesus Christ.

Freemasonry believes that the gods of all religions can be found under the Masonic god which they call the “Great Architect of the Universe.”

Freemasonry teaches that man can make himself fit for eternal life by his own natural efforts without grace.

Freemasonry treats all religious writings as equivalent expressions of the will of God.

Freemasonry requires its members to swear blood covenant oaths with self-curses invoking the penalties of mutilation and death.

Freemasonry’s most sublime doctrine is its belief in the resurrection of the body, which it exemplifies in a death-burial-and-resurrection rite called the Hiramic Legend.

In short, Freemasonry is an anti-Christian, counterfeit religion which has been authored by the father of lies. This is why the popes have called
Freemasonry “the synagogue of Satan” and the “implacable enemy of Christ and His Church.”
