Have you noticed how political leaders have become far worse than most ever thought possible when it comes to hatred for their opponents? Have you also noticed how many road rage incidents have been recorded lately? And some ended in murder? Have you also noticed how some teachers are attacking children to the point some are being arrested for assault? Or what of the students themselves wherein bullying has become far worse than it was in my day and now some of the kids shoot up the schools? Or what about how husbands and wives have become so angry at each other that in many cases we hear about murder suicide crimes and the divorce rate has gotten much worse? And yes even some leaders in the church have become exceptionally angry towards anyone in their flock or outside their church that out of love for them points them to a Bible verse that says the opposite of what their sermons say? It’s pretty bad out there don’t you think? Continue reading
In the Vatican’s approved Catechism books it states the following regarding Purgatory. “Augustine (Enarration on Psalm 37, no. 3) speaks of the pain which purgatorial fire causes as more severe than anything a man can suffer in this life, “gravior erit ignis quam quidquid potest homo pati in hac vita” (P.L., col. 397).
Gregory the Great speaks of those who after this life “will expiate their faults by purgatorial flames,” and he adds “that the pain be more intolerable than anyone can suffer in this life” (Ps. 3 poenit., n. 1).
In other words, it’s all about fear. Continue reading
“Pope Francis commissioned a four-book study in 2010 as archbishop of the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires attacking sexual abuse victims and defending a priest convicted of molesting a teenage boy. Francis, who was then known as Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, asked a lawyer and jurist by the name of Marcelo Sancinetti to carry out a more than 2,600-page study encompassing four volumes for the Argentinian Episcopal Conference to discredit the alleged victims of Father Julio César Grassi.” –Source
It’s bad enough this Pope and all previous Popes have defended these child molestations for literally all of what they claim are religious lives; but to claim the victims were lying just to get the priest that molested them in trouble, is downright demonic. Continue reading
“Satan, the “Great Accuser,” has been unleashed against the bishops of the Church, Pope Francis said Tuesday, in a thinly veiled reference to the former Vatican nuncio to the United States. The former nuncio, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, recently accused a number of prelates of dereliction of duty in dealing with clerical sex abuse and claimed that the pope had rehabilitated serial abuser Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, elevating him to a position of influence despite knowledge of his misdeeds.” Source
For those wondering why the Pope says things the Bible boldly declares to be lies; you need to keep in mind that the Popes of Rome are political in every sense of the word. In fact, they are the carriers of ancient of Roman politics into modern day. What he’s doing when scandals like this come forward that can rock the church to its core is what any politician will do. He is simply appealing to his base. What I mean is, the Pope knows most Roman Catholics don’t read Bibles and so he knows when he says things like this the larger number that trusts him more than the Bible will stay loyal to him and actually believe what he says as if it is a biblical utterance, and they will sit tight in that pew.

UPDATE: The enemy of souls did all he could to stop this video from being made or even posted online. It’s actually of a sermon I shared on July 14 of this year. (listen to the original audio version here) I cannot post a long explanation about the topic of the video as it’s 22 minutes long and that would make for one huge blog entry. Suffice it to say, if you are a Christian that has any fear whatsoever regarding what’s right now happening in the world all around you, this video sermon that I posted to YouTube on Friday may help you.

With all the noise we here in the news lately about the current molestation scandal that’s actually standing right on the Pope’s doorstep wherein church prelates are demanding his resignation as well as the Catholic people themselves asking him to resign, and to make matters worse the Pope is refusing to comment for fear of implicating himself.
That all being said, one would think it’s as bad as it can get in the Vatican. And yes, this was prophesied to happen with the Catholic church in our day. That church has been corrupt from day one and it was declared long ago that in the very last days everyone will know who the man of sin is. It says in 2 Thessalonians 2:3, “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” And as we look around we know there is a great falling away wherein what’s good and moral is now considered evil and all that’s evil is now considered moral and upright to the point of killing your unborn child and homosexuals being married legally. And yes that is why Christians are hated globally. Most hate us because of the Bible we the obedient Christians lives by and they know the sinfulness of the world is pointed out. And being exposed to the light of truth like that simply angers some people no matter how gently that truth is presented. Continue reading
