Apparently, some things never change

In the second to last book of the Bible, dated around the year 80 AD, using only 58 short lines of text, St. Jude aptly sums up the state of the world, and the remedy for it. Apparently, over the last 2000 years, little has really changed!

For your convenience, I’ve reduced things down even further, but don’t worry. You can read the entire epistle/letter, simply by clicking the link to the USCCB/New American Bible, at the bottom of this article.

Just be careful not to “swallow” the USCCB/NAB’s shameful commentary about the book containing certain “errors”. The Catholic Church teaches definitively, that there are absolutely NO errors in sacred scripture! In this, the NAB (New American Bible) “scholars” are way off base. And if they were actually Catholic, they would be guilty of teaching heresy. In short, the guys at the NAB are way too “smart”  for their own good … and we U.S. Catholics are left wondering why our bishops continue to encourage and finance such liberal, faith-corroding nonsense!

Jude 1:1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ and brother of James: to them that are beloved in God the Father and preserved in Jesus Christ and called.

Jude 1:2 Mercy unto you and peace: and charity be fulfilled.

Jude 1:4 For certain men are secretly entered in (who were written of long ago unto this judgment), ungodly men, turning the grace of our Lord God into riotousness and denying the only sovereign Ruler and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Jude 1:8 In like manner, these men also defile the flesh and despise dominion and blaspheme majesty.

Jude 1:11 Woe unto them!

Jude 1:12 These are spots in their banquets, feasting together without fear, feeding themselves: clouds without water, which are carried about by winds: trees of the autumn, unfruitful, twice dead, plucked up by the roots:

Jude 1:13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own confusion: wandering stars, to whom the storm of darkness is reserved for ever.

Jude 1:20 But you, my beloved, building yourselves upon your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,

Jude 1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, unto life everlasting.

Jude 1:22 And some indeed reprove, being judged:

Jude 1:23 But others save, pulling them out of the fire. And on others have mercy, in fear, hating also the spotted garment which is carnal.

Jude 1:24  Now to him who is able to preserve you without sin and to present you spotless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, in the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:

Jude 1:25 To the only God our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory and magnificence, empire and power, before all ages, and now, and for all ages of ages. Amen.
