“The Vatican is taking a modern approach to one of its oldest traditions, by offering indulgences to Twitter followers of the Pontifex’s social media account. …Under Catholic belief, after confessing and being absolved of sin, the indulgences granted reduce the amount of time one spends in purgatory, where one’s sins are weighed after death. Under the Pope’s new offer, those who follow the week’s events on the Twitter feed can get a speedier transit through purgatory, hopefully on the way to heaven.” –Source
Just so you know, the Roman Catholic dogma of Purgatory is defined in their Catechism book in the following manner. “purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven,” which is experienced by those “who die in God’s grace and friendship, but still imperfectly purified” (CCC 1030). It notes that “this final purification of the elect . . . is entirely different from the punishment of the damned” (CCC 1031). (Click here for more on Purgatory) Continue reading →
An ultra-conservative university and television network director has fallen out of grace with Colombia’s Catholic church after claiming Pope Francis is a “false prophet” who is “paving the way for the Antichrist.”
The influential but radical Jose Galat, director of the Great Colombia university and Teleamiga television network, almost spewed fire when interviewed by Blu Radio about an impending papal visit to Colombia. Continue reading →
“In this context, most worrisome to me is the persistent flirtation by the President of the United States, throughout his campaign and soon thereafter, with a return to torture. We are now told the US Army field manual will not be redrafted, and the US Secretary of Defence is guiding the White House on this. For now there is little danger of a return to the practice of so-called “enhanced interrogation techniques,” a euphemism that dupes no one. The mood in the US could of course change dramatically, if the country were at some stage to experience a gruesome terrorist attack. And, mindful of how the American public has, over the last ten years, become far more accepting of torture, the balance could be tipped in favour of its practice – and destroy the delicate position the Convention Against Torture is in.” –Source
Now do you see why students of prophecy understood as we did during the Trump campaign when he and the Pope butted heads that is was nothing more than a negative propaganda campaign designed to pull the onus off the Pope and how he will still have complete control over US policy because prophecy will be fulfilled? And the fact Trump and His Roman Catholic wife met with the Pope in May and had nothing but praises for him shows it’s all politics. Nothing more nothing less. Continue reading →
Pope Francis met on Thursday with a delegation from a Nigerian diocese which for the last four and a half years has refused to recognize the bishop who was appointed as its shepherd.
He demanded that the clerics of the Diocese of Ahiara accept the bishop appointment that has been made, or face suspension and loss of office.
Fr. Peter Okpaleke was appointed Bishop of Ahiara in December 2012 by Benedict XVI. But the Ahiara diocese is dominated by the Mbaise ethnic group. As an outsider from the nearby Diocese of Awka, Fr. Okpaleke was rejected by much of Ahiara’s clergy and laity, who wanted one of their own to be appointed bishop over them. Continue reading →
“The Democratic Party may have found its next Barack Obama. His name is Dr. Abdul el-Sayed, he’s a 32-year-old medical doctor and he recently launched his campaign for governor of Michigan, the election for which is in November 2018. If he wins he would be America’s first Muslim governor. He speaks articulately, without an accent, inserts humor into his speeches at seemingly just the right moments, and he has the full backing of America’s powerful Muslim Brotherhood-linked network of Islamic organizations.” –Source
“The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) and its rival al-Qaeda have recently published propaganda videos explicitly calling on jihadists from China’s Uighur minority who have joined the terrorist groups to attack the communist country. …Both videos feature calls to the Muslim world to wage jihad against the kafirs [non-believers] of China and to perform acts of revenge for the deaths of Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang. …Oh, you Chinese, who do not understand what people say! We are the soldiers of Allah, will make you understand Islam with the tongues of our weapons. We will come to you to shed blood like rivers and avenge the oppressed,” he adds before savagely decapitating a prisoner dressed in red, a color traditionally associated with communism.” –Source
If you are one to watch the News, especially that which comes from nations wherein the Pope recently visited or is trying to make “friendly relations” with, you may notice that each time the Pope visits a nation, not long after the visit political chaos literally breaks forth on numerous front because the man of sin brings the enemy of souls with him wherever he goes and anyone doing business with him grants Satan permission to run rampant in their nation. What amazes me is how 1.2 billion Catholics keep missing all this time after time. They watch their Popes go from nation to nation, yet rarely do they see their Popes having major meetings with Catholic church leaders. No, the Pope concentrates on having meetings with the leaders of nations as well as non-Catholic leaders and with leaders from very evil religions. Worse yet, he bows before their antiChristian leaders and actually kisses their holy books. But nary a Catholic is bothered by this? Continue reading →
“Two street preachers have today been convicted of a public order offence, after a public prosecutor claimed that publicly quoting parts of the King James Bible in modern Britain should“be considered to be abusive and is a criminal matter.” Prosecutor Ian Jackson also told the court that“although the words preached are included in a version of the Bible in 1611, this does not mean that they are incapable of amounting to a public order offence in 2016. …this prosecution is nothing more than a modern-day heresy trial – dressed up under the Public Order Act.”” –Source
“Pope Francis has quietly reduced sanctions against a handful of pedophile priests, applying his vision of a merciful church even to its worst offenders in ways that survivors of abuse and the pope’s own advisers question. One case has come back to haunt him: An Italian priest who received the pope’s clemency was later convicted by an Italian criminal court for his sex crimes against children as young as 12. The Rev. Mauro Inzoli is now facing a second church trial after new evidence emerged against him, The Associated Press has learned.” –Source
It’s exactly as I’ve been saying for literally decades. Roman Catholic priests do not become pedophiles once they join the unbiblical priesthood, the truth is pedophiles become Catholic priests knowing they will be protected. This is also why the Vatican is the only church on earth with “altar boys.” This allows them the “religious” lie they t ell parents that they need to be alone with their sons so as to better educate them in their duties as altar boys.

“CNN’s Jake Tapper and Kyung Lah report on the efforts of religious groups who are preparing an “underground railroad” to hide illegal aliens from potential deportation.” –Source
This so called man of God said (at about 2:10 in the video) that he is breaking federal law because he “answers to God” and so he must help illegal aliens by hiding them in secret locations all over his area. He makes the assumption, and I would also think he hopes, that the people watching him claim on camera to be doing God’s work don’t actually read their Bible because he is breaking the laws of the land and the Bible clearly declares that is sin. So he is correct in assuming he will “answer to God” for it, but not in the way he believes. And for an added bonus for his sinful rebellion, he will eventually answer to the authorities that write and enforce the laws because they are ordained of God to do so. Continue reading →
The Vatican and one of Islam’s most renowned schools of Sunni thought are joining forces to discuss how they can work together in combating religious extremism that uses God’s name to justify violence.
On Feb. 21 the Vatican announced that Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, will travel to Cairo to participate in a special seminar at the Al-Azhar University.
He will be joined by the council’s secretary, Bishop Miguel Ángel Ayuso Guixot, and the head of their Office for Islam, Msgr. Khaled Akasheh, to discuss the theme “The role of al-Azhar al-Sharif and of the Vatican in countering the phenomena of fanaticism, extremism and violence in the name of religion.” Continue reading →
