Economically and spiritually, Pope Francis’ January 15, 2015 visit to the Philippines is posing dangers to Filipinos. Despite this, Filipino Roman Catholics are welcoming him whole-heartedly in fulfillment of the prophecy in 2 Thessalonians 2: 11-12, stating: “11 so God will allow them to believe lies with all their hearts, 12 and all of them will be justly judged for believing falsehood, refusing the Truth, and enjoying their sins.” (TLB)
Also, above proposition is based on the premise that the previous visits of two former Popes, who promoted fictitious Jesus as Christ and God, including the Roman Catholic’s idolatry were associated with unexplained disasters in the country. These Popes were Pope Paul VI, who visited on November 27-29, 1970 and Pope John Paul II, who followed last February 1981 and January 15, 1995.
Historically, Philippines was noted to continue suffering since 1970, when the first Pope visited the country, which contradicts the theory that Pope’s visit has a blessing effect on the country. In fact, since then (more…)
One tool of argument to debunk the belief on Shroud of Turin is second commandment of God (Exodus 20:4), which was deleted by Roman Catholicism. Thus, rather than spending too much to resolve the authenticity of the shroud, scientists should ask Pope Francis why Roman Catholicism had erased God’s Words in Catholic practices, which Words were written by God Himself.
To stress, humanity deserves an explanation from the Pope, why the apparent big traditional lie.
What is the relevance of the second commandment of God to the issue on Shroud of Turin?
The commandment states:
4“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.(Exodus 20:4, NIV)
Notice that Shroud of Turin,which refers to alleged face of Christ, still fall under the definition of prohibited image because somebody, either a human being or super-natural, had obviously made it, to the exclusion of God Himself if you co-relate the verse to Exodus 20:18-22, stating: (more…)
“In our catecheses, we have often noted that we do not become a Christian on our own, but by being born and nurtured in the faith in the midst of the people of God, that is the church. She is a true mother who gives us life in Christ, and in the communion of the Holy Spirit, brings us into a common life with our brothers and sisters,”.
“The model of motherhood for the church is the Blessed Virgin Mary, who in the fullness of time conceived through the Holy Spirit and gave birth to the Son of God. Her motherhood continues through the church, who brings forth sons and daughters through baptism, whom she nourishes through the Word of God.”
Basing on the above statements, are we dealing with facts or merely opinions? If they are merely opinions and not based on facts, are we then dealing with the truth or merely deceptions? If we are dealing with deceptions, then how can we consider the words of Pope Francis?
But before settling above, let us try discussing, what is a Christian?
Operationally, a Christian is one who believes on the teachings of Christ and not on the teaching regarding the physical cross, where Christ was crucified. Also, he believes on the Lord’s prayer, which is addressed only to the Father in heaven and never (more…)
Mafia members were recently excommunicated by Pope Francis. Is it nice and spiritually healthy? How about excommunicating also the pedophile priests and all Roman Catholics who kneel before the cross and other Roman Catholic idols? Because if the violent acts of Mafia members are primarily directed against their fellowmen, which is disobedience to the words of God, ‘oral sex’ mentality or pedophilia of catholic priests and idolatry of Roman Catholics are acts that are primarily directed against God.
In other words, Mafia’s acts of violence and pedophilia and idolatry in Roman Catholicism are both against the words of God with the latter being worst than the former considering the intention and recipient of the acts.
Notably, idolatry is forbidden in the scripture, which states among others, as follows:
“You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.(Exodus 20:4, English Standard Version).
8I alone am the Lord your God. No other god may share my glory, I will not let idols share my phrase. (Isaiah 42:8, TEV)
8The Lord punished his people by sending them into exile. He took them away with a cruel wind from the east. 9But Israel’s sin will be forgiven only when the stones of pagan altars are ground up like chalk, and no more incense altars or symbols of goddess Asherah are left. (Isaiah 27:8-9, TEV)
Also, note that the cross, statues and images of alleged Mother Mary, Christ and the saints, including rosary beads and strings (more…)
Pope Francis urged his ‘brother’ Muslims never to abuse the name of God through violence. The declaration is quoted in ph.news.yahoo.com article entitled “Pope Francis calls Muslims ‘brothers’ at Dome of the Rock”.
Clearly, based on the above, Pope Francis had spoken the words as if the papacy is not equally guilty of traditionally abusing the name of God through 1) idolatry and 2) sodomy of pedophile priests and opportunistically using the name of God to maintain its status as a world power and as the world’s richest corporation, including murders at the time of the crusade.
Above are aside from usurpation by the Pope of the title of the “Holy Father”.
On the other hand, is the declaration uncalled for? Because it is technically accusing Muslims as enemies of God by abusing God’s name through violence, which accusation, if not attended with cool heads from national leaders, may result in a full-blown world war III.
More specifically, the article is quoted saying as follows: (more…)
Did Pope Francis include in his asking for pardon the alleged rapist priest who tortured three school teachers during exorcism? This is the question, which is related to the previous article entitled: “Pope is not asking pardon for idolatry?“.
In that article, Pope Francis was discussed to have publicly asked forgiveness from people who were sexually abused by priests. He asked forgiveness for acts of the priests, which are apparently not personal to him rather than asking forgiveness for idolatry, which is intimately personal to him being the head of the Roman Catholics.
The article is based on the article published in ph.news.yahoo.com entitled: Pope asks pardon for sex abuse by priests.
The answer is: “No, unless the Pope had himself raped the three (3) school teachers during exorcism together with the rapist priest. Legally, pardon is available only to an offender”. (more…)
Just asking…Is Pope Francis not interested in asking pardon for Roman Catholic’s idolatry? This is because he is asking for forgiveness from people who were sexually abused by priests, which is psychologically natural to repentant persons, who committed mortal sin.
Because idolatry is a personal concern of the Pope, being the leader of the Roman Catholics while sexual abuses are personal to offender priests, is it not expected from the Pope to ask for pardon on idolatry instead of sexual abuses, unless he himself had committed the offense of pedophilia?
Also, is it not a fact that the Pope has no concern to ask forgiveness in behalf of priest offenders as his concern is only to give them sanctions to show to the public that his alleged church is indeed a type of spiritually healthy church?
Further, just to test if the Pope is really sincere, is it not proper for the Pope to ask first for forgiveness on idolatry because Roman Catholic’s idolatry is far more older than the sodomy or ‘oral sex‘ mentality of the (more…)
Pope Francis warns against “administering a vaccine against faith”. Obviously, when he mentioned ‘vaccine against faith”, definitely, he is referring to “faith” as a disease, because vaccines are only intended to prevent diseases.
But when he further warned against ‘administering’ the vaccine, then he logically means that he is warning against the prevention of a disease. The reader may correct the publisher, if he has committed an error in logic, as the case maybe.
Specifically, the statements are as follows:
“The pontiff said educational leaders should ask themselves “how can we proclaim Christ to a generation that is changing?”
“We must be careful not to administer a vaccine against faith to them,” the 77-year-old added.”(http://ph.news.yahoo.com)
