Ecumenicalism: “All Paths Lead to One”

It used to be back in the day that certain denominational Christian churches (as an unwritten rule) would strive to set themselves apart from all the rest with a sort’ve “holier than thou” type attitude. The Catholics thought that they were better than the Methodists, the Methodists thought they were better than the Baptists, the Baptists thought they were better than the Lutherans and so on and so forth. It rather seemed that Satan the Devil had successfully divided the Lord’s people into many separate factions. But now, in the year 2014, those days are LONG GONE. We have now entered a new age……..an age that’s all about “tolerance”, “diversity” and “Inter-faith councils” where the subliminal message remains clear: “All Paths Lead to One”.

Quite frankly, it was the “tolerance” and “diversity” movement that sparked a resurgence in the New Age movement (thanks to things such as the Harry Potter series, and movies like Practical Magic, the 6th Sense and The Craft), which THEN went on to spark the “Ecumenical Movement”. Similar to the “Emergent Movement” (which I’ve talked about in a previous post), the Ecumenical Movement is slightly different. Unlike the “Emergent Movement” which strives to bring New Age teachings and philosophies INTO the Christian church (such as meditation, yoga, walking through labyrinths, etc.) the ECUMENICAL MOVEMENT is a movement that is striving to merge ALL Christian churches across the globe into ONE….in other words, it’s a movement to align ALL Christian churches with the Roman Catholic Church which would then create a “One World Universal Religion” with the Roman Catholic Church at its head.

Parts of the book of Daniel in the Old Testament and parts of the book of Revelation in the New Testament BOTH prophecy about a coming ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT. And this one world government will also attempt to have a ONE WORLD ECONOMY and ONE WORLD RELIGION. Essentially, the Ecumenical Movement (as well as the Emergent Movement) are BOTH trying to bring about a ONE WORLD RELIGION, where all world religions and ALL Christian denominations become ONE (one with the Catholic Church, that is……..which to me, is even FURTHER evidence that the Roman Catholic Church is likely the Whore of Babylon talked about in the book of Revelation in the New Testament).

Satan’s Bride: The Roman Catholic Church, Part 4

In my humble and spiritual opinion, there seems to be some VERY strong evidence (atleast to ME, anyways) that Rome (e.g. The Vatican) is the possible Whore of Babylon from the book of Revelation in the New Testament!

Possible Evidence?

The book of Revelation, chapters 17-18, 19:2 and 2 Thessalonians 3-4, etc. give us some possible clues about whom the “beast” might be and also whom the “whore” might be.

17

And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:

2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The MOTHER Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.

6And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.

11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

1And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth”.

18

And after these things I saw another another angel come down from heaven, having great power: and the earth was lightened with his glory.

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.

How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,

10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:

12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,

13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.

14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.

15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,

16 And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!

17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,

18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!

19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.

20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;

23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth”.

 Catholic “Quotes” about Its Very Own Importance (very striking):

Cardinal James Gibbons, The Faith of Our Fathers (Ayers Publishing, 1978): 108:But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify

The Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine (1957): 50:

Q. Which is the Sabbath day?
A. Saturday is the Sabbath day.
Q. Why Do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
A. We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday.

=====================

Chancellor Albert Smith for Cardinal of Baltimore Archdiocese, letter dated February 10, 1920:If Protestants would follow the Bible, they should worship God on the Sabbath day by God, which is Saturday. In keeping the Sunday, they are following a law of the Catholic Church

======================

Stephen Keenan, Catholic—Doctrinal Catechism 3rd Edition: 174:

Question: Have you any other way of proving the Church has power to institute festivals of precept?

Answer: “Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her, she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday the 1st day of the week, for the observance of Saturday the 7th day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority

=========================

Our Sunday Visitor (February 5, 1950): “Practically everything Protestants regard as essential or important they have received from the Catholic Church… The Protestant mind does not seem to realize that in accepting the Bible and observing the Sunday, in keeping Christmas and Easter, they are accepting the authority of the spokesman for the church, the Pope

“Pope,” Ferraris’ Ecclesiastic Dictionary:The Pope is of so great dignity and so exalted that he is not a mere man, but as it were God, and the vicar of God”

==========================

Catholic Record (September 1, 1923): The [Catholic] Church is above the Bible, and this transference of the Sabbath observance is proof of that fact”

Pope Leo XIII, Praeclara Gratulationis Publicae (The Reunion of Christendom), June 20, 1894: 
”We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty

10 Interesting Facts:

  1. Vatican City is one of THE MOST riches cities upon the whole ENTIRE EARTH!

  2. The official colors of the Vatican are Purple & Scarlett!

  3. The Vatican and many of its “crowns” and priestly garments and artwork and artifacts are decked with gold, and precious stones and pearls!

  4. The Catholic Church severely tortured and killed off many true Christians (those that believed in faith in & prayer to Jesus Christ, ONLY) during the Middle Ages!

  5. The city of Rome sits on top of seven hills!

  6. The Pope or priest holds up a “golden cup” during Mass in which actual wine is poured into!

  7. Nearly every world leader and/or world religion has had some sort of ties with the Vatican! (There’s now also things such as “Interfaith Councils” and the “Coexist Movement”, which the Catholic Church, in and of itself, is a part of — more like the “leader” of such “movements”)

  8. The Catholic Church calls itself the “Mother Church” (calling itself a WOMAN)!

  9. Satanic/Masonic symbols are all throughout the Catholic Church (whom truly worships Satan & his “UN-SAINTS”)!

10. The Pope calls himself “Holy Father” and claims he is “The Vicar of Christ” (which essentially means that Catholics/he himself calls himself “God’s Mouthpiece on Earth” – which would be more or less equivalent to calling himself/referring to himself as “Jesus Christ incarnate!” Therefore, in light of 2 Thessalonians 2:4, it’s rather “interesting”, isn’t it?)

 

 

 

 

Satan’s Bride: The Roman Catholic Church, Part 3

**A continuation of parts 1 & 2……**

1. Nobody really knows what the true “net worth” of the Vatican is but there’s been some estimates that it could be as high as $10 to $15 BILLION.

With massive real-estate, artwork, financial investments, idols/relics/artifacts, etc., the Vatican is certainly one of the most richest institutions ON EARTH! This flies in comparison with Jesus Christ whom was born into a VERY poor household and whom carried NO money or possessions with him.

4. Rites of Exorcism. How is it that Catholic “exorcism” seems so effective when the Catholic Church ITSELF is un-biblical, one might ask?

exorcist

exorcist-2 exorcist4 exorcist5 Linda Blair

Answer: Satan and his demons can perform what’s known as “false miracles”. In the above case in the movie called “The Exorcist”, Satan just went from ONE person into another. He was not truly cast out because the priest was not truly saved in the name of Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ, ALONE! The following bible passages illustrate how and why Satan was NOT truly cast out of the little girl in “The Exorcist” movie. 

Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded” [Acts 19: 13-16]

 

 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders [2 Thessalonians 2:9]

“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” [Matthew 7: 22-3]

And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments: and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, neither did he hearken unto them; as the Lord had said [Exodus 7:22]

And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the land of Egypt[Exodus 8:7]

Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments. For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods” [Exodus 7: 11-2]

And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light[2 Corinthians 11:14]

 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices[2 Corinthians 2:11]

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour [1 Peter 5:8]

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” [Ephesians 6: 11-12]

5. The following song is either mocking or secretly giving away what “supposedly” happens behind closed doors at many “convents”.

http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/cradleoffilth/thenunwiththeastrailhabit.html

 

6. During the time of the Middle Ages, many nuns got pregnant by priests and bishops and killed & disposed of their babies in order to hide the evidence that they had broken their vows of chastity.

 

INFANTICIDE2 INFANTICIDE1

7. One of the most popular myths about Satan (when it comes to the Catholic Church) is that Satan will never mock the Catholic church (which, in and of itself, is a false religious system). 

 

But the truth is, he’d do it in a heartbeat in order to CONFUSE PEOPLE and lead them spiritually astray. Examples? The following 2 songs.


Song A: Madonna’s “Like A Prayer”

LADY GAG2

Song B: Lady Gaga’s full-length “Alejandro”

lady gaga

Both songs attempt to mock and make fun of the “Catholic religion” but what they are REALLY doing at their core is mocking God (the Heavenly Father) and the holy Son of God, Jesus Christ!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Satan’s Bride: The Roman Catholic Church, Part 2

In my previous post on the matter, I listed 20 things that the Catholic Church believed/practiced that went AGAINST the bible. In this post, I’m going to further expand on some things and even add a few things the Catholic Church believes/practices that proves they are a church of Satan in disguise!

1. The Sale of Indulgences.

indulgences

In part 1, I mentioned there IS no such thing as “Purgatory”. You won’t find Purgatory ANYWHERE in the bible, whatsoever! During the years of the early 1540’s (give or take), there was something called the “Sale of Indulgences”. That more or less meant that if a person were willing to pay a big enough sum of money to the Catholic church, they could REMIT punishment of their sin(s) in “Purgatory”.

But according to the bible, there IS no “Purgatory” and a person can NOT “buy their way out of hell”. So sadly, instead of buying their way OUT of hell with their hard-earned and/or hard-saved money, Catholic lay-people around the time of the early 1540’s were instead buying their way INTO hell. Sadly, many Catholic people today (though they no longer participate in the sale of indulgences for the most part), STILL believe that they can pray dead people out of hell or have other people pray THEIR way out of hell. And we know from the bible that that’s simply not true for there is but one Earthly life on this Earth and one eternal judgement.

2. Relics.

It never ceases to amaze me just how many different “relics” the Catholic church has. They have the “relic” of this or the “relic” of that. But what most of people don’t realize is that all those “relics” are actually false IDOLS that are being WORSHIPED ***just like** the Golden Calf of Moses & Aaron’s time in history! But in fact, the Catholic Church carries around an “adorned skull” on a pillow (something that seems like an event at a Masonic lodge, somewhere). Does anyone else find this strange?

Skull worship in the catholic church relic MagdaleneRelics01relic77

3. Walls, Ceilings, Chandeliers made of nothing but real-life human bones. (Does anyone else see the total eeriness in all this?) Note: The Catholic Church claims it’s the bones of “previous popes” and “Catholics”. But during the time of the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition, many hundreds of Jews and “true Christians” (those who prayed to Jesus and Jesus Christ, ALONE) were murdered.

4. Veneration of the Dead. (similar to #3).

1846364138_b8843c5f2a_o-1 dead saints day home altar making one

5. The Catholic Church believes that Mary (mother of Jesus Christ) was “immaculately conceived”; in other words, they believe that Mary was born of a Virgin, just like Jesus. And we know from the bible that Jesus Christ is the ONLY one who’s EVER been conceived by a “virgin”. (This belief about “Mary” + “her parents” are nothing more than a complete mockery of the TRUE holy family comprised of Jesus, Mary & Joseph!)

AnnJoachimMary

6. Catholic doctrine says that the Holy Spirit is Mary’s spouse! (And we know from the bible that JOSEPH and Joseph ALONE was Mary’s spouse!)

_MaryHS mary, holy spirit, 2 mary, holy spiritholy, mary, spouse of

7. Child molestation oftentimes goes unreported. Instead, they seem to transfer “child molesting” priests from parish to parish.

This is just an example of one of MANY child molesting priests who were transferred from parish to parish.

8. The clerical dress of the Catholic church is Satanic, in and of itself. This is like something out of the movie “Eyes Wide Shut”. Satan is INDEED their master!

9. The outside of the Vatican in Vatican city is shaped like a skull, plus there’s tons of Gargoyles (“sculptured witches/demons”) on Catholic churches everywhere.

10. There are Masonic symbols all throughout the Vatican, not to mention that they worship the Sun. (Note: It’s not halos you see surrounding the painted figures on the walls, they’re actually supposed to represent Suns). Please note that other world religions ALSO have their “gods” depicted with this same general “halo” as the Catholic Church. Odd, isn’t it?

11. Not surprisingly, it is highly rumored that Satanic services/rituals go on, inside the Vatican. And some such “people” in the Catholic Church that have personal knowledge of this have now come forward, along with other true Christians out there who wish to shed the light on such matters.

———————-

The guy in the following video does a pretty good job of explaining my list of 11 in further detail.

The Popular Way Vs. God’s Way

The Christian Church (up until most recently in the year 2005? or so) has always had a strong view against homosexuality/homosexual behavior. And because of this, church attendance in years past hasn’t been very popular. But now with the changing societal norms and being gay being the so-called “in” thing now (or so it “seems”, anyways), many Christian churches have now followed suit and now claim it’s “OK” to be actively gay and allows openly homosexuals to marry and be clergy members WITHIN the church! And that, in and of itself, is an abomination and goes directly AGAINST the written word of God in the bible!

In wanting to gain more converts and more pews filled, the Church has seemingly become more “world-friendly” in its stance on sin, proclaiming false things like “it’s OK to be an active homosexual” and “there’s no such thing as sin, since Jesus Christ ALREADY died on the cross for our sins” and “once saved, always saved”. But tell me. Is the holy bible like going through a Burger King drive-thru? Metaphorically speaking, is it okay to order the tomato without the lettuce, the lettuce without the tomato, cheese and pickle but no onion on the hamburger, etc? Just like that wouldn’t be a complete cheeseburger (in my eyes) without ALL those things ON it, the written Word of God is not complete without ALL of God’s commandments IN it. Cause otherwise, what did Jesus Christ die on the cross for? Think about it, folks!

Matthew 7: 13-14 states: Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and MANY there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and FEW there be that find it.

Matthew 7: 15-18 says: Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.”

Matthew 7: 19-23 says:Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fireWherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

Matthew 7: 24-29 states: Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and DOETH them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them NOT, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.”

Matthew 7: 13-14 means that MANY, MANY people will take the “popular” way out and do what is popular in the WORLD, but NOT what is popular with God/Jesus Christ/the bible. In wanting to feel or be “accepted”, they will forsake all or parts of the bible in their quest to FEEL “accepted”. But these sinners (and please note I’m talking about ALL types of sinners that want to justify their sin, here, NOT JUST openly active homosexuals) care more about feeling accepted by mankind, rather than by feeling/being accepted by God/Jesus Christ. And in SO doing, they forsake any chance they might have at true Salvation through Jesus Christ, except if they repent of their sins and come back to the TRUE biblical truth of Jesus Christ & Salvation before it’s too late.

Matthew 7:15-29 means that many people will profess to come in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and TRUE Christianity, but only a very few select FEW will actually be as such, for MANY will be “pretend Christians” or “wayward Christians” who THINK or PRETEND they are following the bible but actually aren’t or of whom PURPOSELY lead people astray for their own personal, financial or spiritual gain. Just think of the many “Christian ministries” out there that have gotten in trouble for “financial fraud” most recently in the last few years. This is a REAL growing problem in today’s “church”.

Matthew 7:16 states: Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?” In other words, do those that come in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ manifest the “fruits” of patience, unconditional love, biblical truth, kindness, non-judgement, etc. or do they show ungodly “fruits” such as greed, envy, wrath, financial fraud/embezzlement, hatred for others, UN-biblical truths,etc.? Some of today’s modern churches and “Christian ministries” have proven themselves to be “ungodly fruits” who care more about the mighty $$$, than they do about saving souls for Christ and this is very sad & unfortunate and breaks my heart and soul to PIECES! ;( 

Matthew 22:14 reminds us:For many are called, but few are chosen.”

There seems to be this false teaching that’s permeating the very FABRIC of our society today that “all paths lead into one” or “everybody goes to heaven unless they were Stalin or Adolf Hitler, etc” when that’s just simply not true! Matthew 7: 13-14 is VERY CLEAR that it is a NARROW path and FEW actually find it!!!!!! So people are gonna have to choose in this life. Do they want to be popular with God/Jesus Christ or with fellow man? And IF a person chooses they’d rather be popular with fellow man and NOT with God, there’s an eternal price they’ll have to pay for that someday, if they don’t repent of their sins and turn back to Jesus Christ before it’s too late!

Once more, there’s TWO ways in this world and two ways, ONLY! One is either FOR Jesus Christ or AGAINST Jesus Christ. There is NO other way! Cause the truth is, ALL paths but ONE lead unto DARKNESS and the ONLY true path to God is through Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ, ALONE! ALL OTHER PATHS (meaning, all other world religions or philosophies, INCLUDING ATHEISM/AGNOSTICISM) lead into ETERNAL DARKNESS & ETERNAL CONDEMNATION. Those Christians out there that SAY that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to eternal paradise might SEEM “narrow-minded” on the surface, but Jesus Christ has SAID that the path to eternal paradise is narrow and FEW actually find it!

Not all of the religion in the WORLD (Agnosticism/Atheism/Catholicism/Wicca/Satanism/Islam/Hinduism/Buddhism/Mormonism/Humanism/Shintoism/Wayward-Unbiblical Christianism, etc.) is going to save you if you don’t put your faith, trust and love into Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ, ALONE! Acts 4: 12 states:  Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.

 

 

 

Jesus Christ: The One and ONLY True Jewish Messiah!

There seems to be three separate groups of Jews/Jewish people today. There are those who accept that Jesus Christ was the only true Jewish Messiah, those that do NOT accept Jesus Christ as their true Jewish Messiah and yet others who have no opinion on the matter and/or aren’t sure rather or not Jesus Christ was the one and only true Jewish Messiah.

Plus there might even be more than aren’t mentioned, here. Nevertheless, if that’s not enough to convince you, then I don’t know what is! Also: Think about how there is such “vile hatred” for Jesus Christ among the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community, whom places the “MAN-MADE TALMUD” OVER the bible and Old Testament! WHY is that, do you think? Do you think that’s all just coincidence? Jesus Christ was NOT kidding when he called the Sadducees and Pharisees “children of your father, the Devil”. In fact, Jesus Christ even takes it a step further when he’s quoted in John’s vision as saying in Revelation 2:9 the following:

“I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.”

I’ve always interpreted that passage to mean that Jesus is saying he “knows” of their evil works, and their “tribulation” DUE to those evil works (as punishment) but they are rich (MONETARILY), just like he also knows the “blasphemy” of those which claim they are BIBLICAL JEWS but are instead, the “congregation/synagogue” of Satan/Satan worshipers in disguise. Just think of all the Jewish people you know today that OPENLY worship the Devil (Lady Gaga is one of them, for instance). And why do you think this IS, people? Do you think that’s all just coincidence? Because according to the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ himself in John’s vision, IT IS OF NO COINCIDENCE! OPEN YOUR EYES, PEOPLE!!! 

 

 

 

 

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is FREE!

I don’t know why but I’ve personally come across COUNTLESS numbers of Christian tracks, programs and ministries that ask for CONSTANT DONATIONS in the name of Jesus Christ!

And something about that just doesn’t sit right with me.

With so many FREE & wonderful bible study programs out there that are funded of their own accord, why do all these other “Christian” ministries out there feel the need to ask for money all the time? In fact, there’s been quite a number of cases most recently where Christian ministries were brought to light by the media over “financial fraud”.

But the truth is, the gospel of Jesus Christ and salvation is FREE! For Jesus Christ NEVER once said in the bible, “baptize them in my name, then ask them for $20” or “have the inhabitants of the city of Bethlehem pay you $50, just to be able to hear my message!”

And quite frankly, I’ve listened to lots of Christian radio programming while driving to and from work or watched some Christian evangelist programming on TV from time to time. And most of these programs (specifically, the Christian radio programming that I listen to the most) have GREAT Christian messages about how we need to repent of our sins, develop a more closer spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ, etc.

But then, as soon as some of the programs are over, or sometimes right in the middle of them, there’s a short pause followed by constant proclamations of “and now you can order the whole CD set of this program with a generous donation of $25 or more” or “for your donation of any amount, we’ll send you such and such program” or some like thing and my heart just ACHES with sadness each and every time I hear something like that. For the gospel of Jesus Christ and salvation is FREE. So why should people have to pay up the WAZOO or be FORCED to make a donation for such programs like “how to have a better prayer life”, etc? Because the truth is, ALL the questions about how to have a better prayer life, etc. can be found in the very pages of the bible, itself!

But don’t get me wrong, though. There ARE still many great FREE Christian resources out there. They are just few and far between and hard to find. But in fact, walk into just about ANY Christian bookstore today and (assuming it’s about the same everywhere and not just here in my local town), the prices are OUTRAGEOUS (using Jesus as a “cash cow”), an author’s picture oftentimes takes up the whole entire book cover (worshiping the creator instead of the creator/idolatry), not to mention there are things like “scripture candy” (pretty much milking it — the $$$ — for all it’s worth, something CLEARLY forbidden in the bible. Think about the time of  John 2:16 when it was said “And [Jesus Christ] said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise”. 

So when I see “disposable things” in a Christian bookstore like “scripture candy”, I am truly appalled for I feel as though they are taking it a bit too far and making the gospel a sort’ve “joke” because as soon as one eats the candy, they are “eating up” a piece of written scripture, sort’ve speak, and something about that just doesn’t sit right with me, though I can’t quite put my finger on it. And not only that but every single time I stepped foot inside the local Christian bookstore, not only did this weird creepy sense of foreboding come over me (can’t explain it — has this ever happened to anyone else or is it just me?) but they watched me like a hawk and tried to sell me things I clearly didn’t need (EXPENSIVE things!)

In fact, I almost always felt like I had been a character out of the Stephan King movie “Needful Things” every time I went in there (to the local Christian bookstore). And once more, they NEVER really talked about Jesus Christ or salvation or even asked how my day or my life was going. They were there to make $$$$, PERIOD! [And yes, I know that some people gotta make a living — that’s true — but do they REALLY need to charge $150-$200 for a brand new bible? That is just CRAZY!!!) So I stopped going there a long while ago for those express purposes. And how sad. And how my soul grieves.

It seems there is no longer a true/biblical Christian store here, anymore. And not only that but the people of my town are (sadly) seeming to become more and more “liberal” over time. This used to be a town where (it seemed to ME, atleast) that people actually CARED about God and his holy divine commands in the bible some 15 years ago. Today, in the year 2014, one would be hard-pressed to find a Christian in my town that even does so much as BELIEVES in the 100% accuracy of the bible, let alone follows it! 😦 

15 years ago, the New Age section of the local Hastings [and notice I said Hastings, I’m not talking about the same “Christian bookstore” up above] took up ONE small shelf while the Christianity section took up about 3 whole AISLES! TODAY in the year 2014, the New Age section pretty much takes up 1-3 whole AISLES while the Christian section only takes up half an aisle. And OF the things on the Christian shelf section, MOST of those things are what I call “liberal-leaned” literature. There’s TONS of NIVS, NKJV, ESV, NLT, etc. and my soul just GRIEVES, relentlessly.

Because I know full well that most of these “newer” bible translations are actually serving to lead MANY astray by changing/omitting hundreds, if not THOUSANDS of words from the original KJV text and as a result are more likely to be of the viewpoint “it’s OK to be gay” which is one of the most SINGLE, most damnable lies and heresies of the ENTIRE 21ST CENTURY (next to “once saved, always saved”, which I believe I discussed in a previous post on here). But I will discuss the former more in detail in my next post.

But in fact, I was mulling around an idea in my head the other day. Something called “The Gospel Project”. What I would do is publish various bible verses (such as John 3:16) on Vistaprint cards. And then, I would leave them in various unsuspecting places for people to see, or gather up a small pile of them in my hand on a very windy day and then throw them up in the air and let the wind do its magic since I know the Lord Jesus will let the wind blow the cards wherever he wills and allow them all to be viewed by whomever he wills. I also thought of self-publishing small little packets proving how Jesus is the Jewish Messiah and then anonymously distributing it to local Jewish centers in the area and/or possibly printing off another small packet firmly yet lovingly explaining why homosexual practitioners are “lost souls” that need to come back to God and that yes, homosexual relations are a sin, etc.

Basically, I’ve been trying to brainstorm of various ways that I can freely distribute the gospel and fulfilled bible prophecy to people OTHER than just through this blog! But I have to admit. In a nation and even a town of mostly “liberals”, I am somewhat afraid of how the gospel messages will be received. But, I must be strong and have faith in the Lord Jesus for it was said in Matthew 19:26 “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible“.

And like I said up above, I know that all people gotta make a living, somehow. But when one is charging $150-$200 for bibles, you REALLY got to ask yourself what this world is coming to. Beware of bibles being sold for high prices, as the bible states it must be FREELY GIVEN! That’s exactly why I don’t necessarily agree with the concept of a “Christian bookstore” that’s set up like a business. A business is set up to make money, not save souls. Think how many more souls they could help save if they gave out free bibles. I’m sure they could help save a TON!

Not every lost soul in NEED of being saved has a free $200 floating around in their pockets to purchase a bible. Especially in TODAY’S economy where even some poor folks with PhD’s are now homeless due to losing their homes and jobs and in many cases, their own families (due to death/natural disasters) and very livelihoods. Now, a book in a Christian bookstore or Christian section OF a secular bookstore on how to get closer to God, okay fine, sell it for $15-$20 (a reasonable price). But the holy bible? The one thing that people actually NEED in their lives? There are many ways/solutions to give it out FREE or to sponsor FREE power point presentations/etc. on the gospel of Jesus Christ if one truly cares about all the poor, lost souls out there.

If Jesus Christ means something to you, then spread his gospel of salvation/forgiveness for sins but do it FREELY. Don’t charge a penny.
