The Vatican has been saying for HUNDREDS of years the Bible is useless!
Now the Vatican is actually saying that Jesus Christ Himself is useless!


 

 

Prophecy amply declares that before Jesus is to arrive, Antichrist must set up his religio/political power. This "woman on the beast" in Rome is becoming so graphically blunt today. It's sadly amazing to see how most Catholics as well as Protestants can't see this. It's almost as if no one is reading a Bible now-a-days! Today's Christian world reminds me of the people in 70AD. Had they believed in a simple prophecy of our Lord in Matthew 24 that was declared a mere 40 years prior, they would have been spared their lives.

  • Matthew 24:15-16, "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand)  Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:"

Historic Fact is...


In A.D.66 when Cestius came against the city, but unaccountably withdrew, the Christians discerned in this the sign foretold by Christ, and fled while 1,100,000 Jews are said to have been killed in the terrible siege in A.D. 70. (The attack of the Roman warrior Titus occurred in 70AD killing the 1,100,000 Jews) Eusebius, Church History, book 3, chap. 5


Like back then, today we see many are ignoring the Bible and the writer of it. The amazing thing is, today's world is literally jam packed with prophetic events! Why they choose to lie to themselves and ignore that reality is truly unbelievable. Our generation has seen more prophetic events occur in it than any other in history! If you want to see a smattering of that fact,

Let me ask a simple question. How will Antichrist be able to convince all that are alive on planet earth that his church is the one to embrace? How will the devil convince mankind that a church prophetically realized as the home of Antichrist is the one true Christian church on earth? How will the enemy get the people of this world to ignore the facts so plainly laid out in prophecy? Well, the answer is quite easy. GET THEM TO STOP READING BIBLES!


The decree set forth in the year 1229 A.D. by the Council of Valencia... places Bible on The Index of Forbidden Books. The doctrine withholds "it is forbidden for laymen (common man) to read the Old and New Testaments. - We forbid them most severely to have the above books in the popular vernacular. The lords of the districts shall carefully seek out the heretics in dwellings, hovels, and forests, and even their underground retreats shall be entirely wiped out." Council Tolosanum, Pope Gregory IX, Anno. Chr. 1229

For much more information and quotes regarding Rome's open hatred of the Word of God,


As history so vividly records, and thanks to the Roman Catholic church's decree, mankind not only saw a "dark age" in decadence and wretched evils. It also saw the black plague run rampant through the land killing scores of people not too many years after the Vatican outlawed the Bible! Why? The Bible not only educates the people regarding their relationship with the Creator, it also educates them on what to do and what not to do in regards to everyday life, including the handling of garbage or human waste. Seeing how the Bible was now FORBIDDEN for the common man to have in his possession, they did not realize they were creating a very unhealthy society for the people that would cultivate a plague. Both spiritually and physically the people perished in huge numbers. All thanks to the home of Antichrist that is today known as the Vatican. No one can honestly give an educated guess as to how many innocent people have gone to their graves thanks to this church. Well over 100 million were tortured and killed openly by the Vatican. Three complete  nations were wiped out by it in it's infancy. And countless millions have died from disease thanks to the "burning of the bibles" after the council of Valencia flexed its muscles. And ALL of this does not take into consideration the literal BILLIONS that have gone to Christ-less graves since this evil church began thanks to the Antichristian doctrines of this evil entity.

Is the same scenario about to be played out today? Will the Bible be stopped? Granted, in today's world, one can see that the Bible is a VERY popular book. But.. is it? Really? Peering into some of the modern day translations, one can see that what some call a Bible is actually a copyrighted and grossly corrupted book. On my "Bogus Bibles" page, I expose 2 such Bibles quite graphically. The NIV and the NASB have been proven to be Bibles that I believe should NEVER be used by ANY Christian! Period! These altered books are jammed packed with over 2000 verses either completely rewritten, or totally removed! These Bibles are being used in a major way to get the people ready for ANTICHRIST! These Bible are so altered in fact that they contain COPYRIGHTS! If you study with one of these Bibles, or any altered Bible that Antichrist has corrupted, you are in danger of being taught a bevy of false doctrines. This is why people from all walks of life are believing in a 7 Year Tribulation, or they have a belief system that states when Jesus returns He will reign on earth for 1000 years! Or they are also being taught to believe that when you die you got straight to Heaven or Hell immediately at death. Or if in fact you are unfortunate enough to go to Hell, you will be there for all eternity screaming at the top of your lungs in pain because God Almighty enjoys hearing you scream. In fact, there are so many of these false doctrines being taught by these craftily twisted Bibles that I would be hard pressed to list them all here.

My point is this. Seeing how the Vatican controller formally known as Antichrist realizes that he can NOT stop the people from reading Bibles since the Two Witnesses have stood up, making his job harder. He has decided to let them read them as long as they read HIS VERSIONS! Everyone with an ounce of gray matter knows that Satan USED THE BIBLE in a twisted fashion to try and tempt Jesus in the desert. He is doing the exact same thing today with the Christians all over this globe! Problem is, they're falling for it! Hook, line and sinker!

The enemy knows that if he can keep the people reading bogus bibles as well as listening to bogus preachers he should have no problem convincing them that his church is the one true church!

For example... All the people of the world, Christians and nonChristians alike agree now that the Pope is a moral and holy man. The ones that claim to be Christians believe this because their bogus Bibles have omitted certain facts and twisted certain truths so as to make him appear holy and righteous and worthy of trusting. Major issues in Scripture have been omitted so that the uneducated masses won't catch on. Plus, those that do read the safe KJV Bible, their preachers refuse to preach on "certain topics." And for those that don't read the so called "Christian" Bibles, theirs is an easy lot for the enemy to control. He already has them totally believing in religions that are 100% fabricated by Satan himself. Case in point, the Koran of the Muslim. It truly is a book filled with satanic verses. Antichrist knows this! He knows he has them in a state of belief that can now be manipulated to such an extent that preaching an "ecumenical message" is primed and ready for acceptance. How so?

Look at what the enemy has done since day one. He has twisted the truth to his advantage and gotten many to go along with him. And in so doing, he has generated nothing but bloodshed on a global scale. Countless wars and atrocities done to our fellowman have been the result of religious differences. It has gotten to such a state that in today's world we hear on a daily basis "Can't we all just get along?" from preachers and politicians the world over. Sure, I agree, it would be a better world if we all just got along. But that is NOT the case, nor was it prophesied to be so. Yet, Satan will use this to his advantage. He needs to convince mankind that a ONE WORLD CHURCH will calm the masses. He needs to make them ignore yet another prophecy of our Lord...

  • Luke 12:51, "Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:"

The enemy has been twisting the Word of God from day one. Jesus says there will be division because those that can't accept Christianity will attack those that do. Satan says, this division Christ speaks of is a lie! We can have global unity if you just listen to me! says Satan. A one world government is inevitable, however, a one world church is a lot more powerful when it comes to an ecumenical charge.

Think about it. If Antichrist was to start with a one world government first, there would be a global up-rising of the people! No one is likely to go along with such a plan. BUT, if you start off with the one world church, everyone will agree that a church is not considered a governing body, nor is it considered a threat. So, they will agree to go along with such a church. They will agree that it is needed. And they will also agree that it wouldn't be dangerous to go along simply because after all, it's a church! Are not churches defined as basically safe and moral? Little do they know however, that Rome is not satisfied with just a church. It wants to be a political power as well! Once it has the people agreeing to join the one world church, it will then be child's play to move the pieces into place that will form the one world government that is under the thumb of the one world church.

Human nature is such that most people will agree with their moral leaders. That is why it is easy for a corrupted Pastor to lead his flock into false doctrines with ease. Case in point, look at the Jim Jones' of the world! Not long from now when all those that can't accept Jesus Christ as Lord, the Vatican will have the majority of the planet in it's court. Being THEIR leader, when he says LAWS must be put in place to guarantee WORSHIP, the people will agree! And then you will see the Beast standing tall with his wound totally healed and the world under the complete control of the Roman Catholic church! You will also see that they will definitely use LAWS to enforce DOCTRINES that go directly against the Law of God just as Babylon attempted in Daniel Chapter 3.

But before all this government control can be realized on the people of this world. Antichrist needs his one world church to have EVERYONE in attendance! But... how do you do this? How do you convince someone that a "so called' Christian organization like the Roman Catholic Vatican should be the moral entity on Earth that should rule over all churches no matter what they believe in, Christian or not?

Understand first, that the Vatican is already standing in this position. Common knoweldge is, the Vatican is the ONLY "religious" entity represented at the United Nations! With that in mind, what is the next logical step?

First of all, you have to convince the non-Christian religions of this world that they are invited and welcome in such a church. But in order to do so, you must FIRST proclaim that their religion is just as worthy as is Christianity. You must convince them that "not only Christians" will go to Heaven. Heaven must be an ecumenical Heaven! It must be open to absolutely everyone regardless of their religious beliefs, "as long as they are good." How do you do this from a globally known, and "supposed" Christian, but truly Catholic Vatican?

First you need a main stream globally accepted protestant leader to preach that Jesus Christ is not needed to gain Heaven. You need a man that was once AGAINST the Vatican to now proclaim the Vatican to be a good and wholesome entity. Why a Protestant leader? And why must he at one time be against Rome? The answer is easy. You will gain many for the ecumenical movement of Rome if you get such a man to do this BEFORE Rome actually steps forward to proclaim the same lie. And even more will jump on the wagon if this man was once known to speak out against Rome. Many who feel they can't trust the Vatican will be swayed back to Rome if a protestant leader they trust gives them assurance that all is well with Rome. Is there such a man?

His name is Billy Graham.


BILLY GRAHAM CITES POPE AS MAN OF THE CENTURY

NEW YORK, DEC 20 (ZENIT).- Television evangelist Billy Graham says that he thinks the man of the century might be Pope John Paul II. In an interview with the Associated Press, he stated that John Paul "has brought the greatest impact of any Pope in the last 200 years." He continued by saying, "I admire his courage, determination, intellectual abilities, and his understanding of Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox differences, and the attempt at some form of reconciliation." ZE99122020
  • Also see this video proving Billy Graham was secretly working with Rome since the beginning of his ministry

It wasn't always this way with Graham. There was a time when Billy Graham was not so accepting of the evils of Catholicism. In fact, in the 1950's, Catholic bishops ordered priests to warn their parishioners against attending any of Graham's crusades for fear they would be proselytized into Protestant churches. It was well known that Graham declared and believed the Pope to be the representative of Antichrist on Earth. In 1960, Billy Graham actually led a movement of evangelical leaders to try and stop John F. Kennedy from becoming president. This of course started a wide spread fear to advance among Protestants that the Pope's hand would be on Kennedy's shoulder. And why was this a cause for concern in Protestant Churches? It's simple. They KNEW what the church of Rome is capable of. History is not ignored that much when it comes to a possibility that YOU MAY BE KILLED for your faith! We all tend to ignore the past EXCEPT when we realize that it may be repeated and WE may be the target of its revival. Everyone knows of the Vatican's rampage on the millions upon millions of Christians it tortured and killed. Still.. even after you get this protestant leader to re-cant his hatred and openly accept Rome as holy, you must convince the masses that Rome has "changed." So.. an apology, directly from the Pope himself is in order!


POPE TO ASK FORGIVENESS FOR PAST FAULTS OF CHURCH'S CHILDREN

VATICAN CITY, MAR 7 (ZENIT.org).- On March 12, the first Sunday of Lent, John Paul II will publicly ask the Lord's forgiveness for past and present faults of the children of the Church.".-ZE00030709

For all the details regarding this Roman Catholic admission of guilt,


Once you get this protestant leader to recant his Truth filled message of  exposing Antichrist in Rome. And you get Rome to apologize for killing millions of Christians. You can now start to openly deny Jesus Christ as Lord so that NONChristians won't feel threatened by this global church! First the protestant leaders need to do it, then it is needed to be done directly from the hierarchy of Rome to get non-Christians to even consider joining. Then you have to declare that the non-Christian faiths are just as worthy for Heaven as is the Christians faith. And THEN you need the Pope himself to deny Jesus Christ to close the deal. And then the icing on the cake of course would be to openly confirm from the Vatican itself to all the world that JEWS, a globally known race of people that openly deny Christ as Lord, are now a Heaven bound people regardless if they accept Christ or not! This will then become an attractive invite for the Muslims, Buddhists, and any other non-Christian faiths. Why? they now "feel" you are serious!

In doing all this you must also make sure that you do NOT deny Christ before local congregations! That would cause a massive exodus on a local level. And the house of cards would fall. The political / religious system must do as politicians have done from the start. They must TARGET their audience correctly, and effectively. They need to preach Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior to the LOCAL churches, as well as local radio, TV, etc... But when speaking to the WORLD ARENA you must make it plain that Christ is not needed! And when confusion sets in, and the eyebrows raise up, the local "spin doctors" in the churches will be moved to quench the concerns of their parishioners by merely LYING and saying things like, "I don't believe that for a minute!" Fact is, the Roman Catholic church has been using this tactic for many many years! Want proof...?

For the proof, all you need do is approach a bonafide, died in the wool devout Roman Catholic and ask them any question regarding some of the blatant errors spewing from Rome. Use one like, "Why does your church teach you can PURCHASE Heaven via the "Indulgences" that have re-instaed as of October 31, 1999?" And you will always hear this response... "Not all of the priests believe what's coming from Rome", OR "That's not what I believe! That priest, bishop, cardinal, nun, or pope is wrong."

Now I ask you, reading this page. Can you SEE the hypocrisy here? They will ALWAYS admit their church is WRONG on numerous points when you have BLUNT facts to share with them. YET THEY STAY IN THAT CHURCH ANYWAY?! This is an absolute sign that Antichrist has been very busy "behind the scenes" for YEARS conditioning the people to accept him and his lies! To get everyday normal people to accept a church THEY KNOW IS IN ERROR is truly a feather in the cap of Satan himself! THAT is how the spin doctors will play the people. Seriously! It's already started! I have below a list of articles with quotes from "so called" religious leaders that ANY devout Catholic or Protestant knows is blatant outright heresy. But do you see an mass exodus from Rome, or the daughters of Rome today? No you do not. They are literally brainwashed, and quite happy to stay in Babylon.

GRAHAM BELIEVES MEN CAN BE SAVED APART FROM NAME OF CHRIST

NEWS BRIEF: "Graham Believes Men Can Be Saved Apart From Name Of Christ", by Robert E. Kofahl, Ph.D., television interview of Billy Graham by Robert Schuller, on May 31, 1997. The following segment is an exact transcript of an excerpt close to the end of the broadcast. Reported by The Christian News, October 20, 1997, page 15.

"SCHULLER: Tell me, what do you think is the future of Christianity?

GRAHAM: Well, Christianity and being a true believer -- you know, I think there's the Body of Christ. This comes from all the Christian groups around the world, outside the Christian groups. I think everybody that loves Christ, or knows Christ, whether they're conscious of it or not, they're members of the Body of Christ ... I think James answered that, the Apostle James in the first council in Jerusalem, when he said that God's purpose for this age is to call out a people for His name. And that's what God is doing today, He's calling people out of the world for His name, whether they come from the Muslim world, or the Buddhist world, or the Christian world, or the non-believing world, they are members of the Body of Christ, because they've been called by God. They may not even know the name of Jesus, but they know in their hearts that they need something that they don't have, and they turn to the only light that they have, and I think they are saved, and that they're going to be with us in heaven."

"SCHULLER: What, what I hear you saying, that it's possible for Jesus Christ to come into human hearts and soul and life, even if they've been born in darkness and have never had exposure to the Bible. Is that a correct interpretation of what you're saying?

GRAHAM: Yes, it is, because I believe that. I've met people in various parts of the world in tribal situations, that they have never seen a Bible or heard about a Bible, and never heard of Jesus, but they've believed in their hearts that there was a God, and they've tried to live a life that was quite apart from the surrounding community in which they lived."

"SCHULLER: [R.S. trips over his tongue for a moment, his face beaming, then says] I'm so thrilled to hear you say this. There's a wideness in God's mercy.

GRAHAM: There is. There definitely is."

POTENTIAL POPE DECLARES JESUS IS NOT THE ONLY WAY

Cardinal Francis Arinze, who's considered a possible successor to Pope John Paul II, has denied Jesus is the only way to heaven. In a recent interview the spirited 66 year-old deputy for outreach to other religions was asked, "So was Jesus wrong when he said he was the way, the truth and the life?" Arinze responded, "If a person were to push what you said a little further and say that if you're not a Christian you're not going to heaven, we'd regard that person as a fundamentalist...and theologically wrong. I met in Pakistan a Muslim. He had a wonderful concept of the Koran. We were like two twins that had known one another from birth. And I was in admiration of this man's wisdom. I think that man will go to heaven. There was a Buddhist in Kyoto, in Japan. This man, a good man, open, listening, humble--I was amazed. I listened to his works of wisdom and said to myself, "The grace of God is working in this man." The interviewer then repeated the question, "So you can still get to heaven without accepting Jesus?" "Expressly, yes [he laughs with the audience]" (Dallas Morning News, 3/20/99)

HEAVEN OPEN TO EVERYONE, SAYS POPE
By Bruce Johnston in Rome

 THE Pope has amended a Vatican pronouncement that the Roman Catholic Church was the "only way to salvation", saying that Heaven is open to all as long as they are good.  He said at an audience that "all of the just on Earth, including those who ignore Christ and his Church" were "called upon to build the kingdom of God". -Electronic Telegraph (Posted on www.telegraph.co.uk) ISSUE 2023 Friday 8 December 2000

Reflections On Covenant And Mission Issued by the National Council Of Synagogues and Delegates of the Bishops' Committee on Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs: Says Targeting Jews for Conversion Not Acceptable


WASHINGTON "August 12, 2002) –- Leaders of the Jewish and Roman Catholic communities in the United States, who have been meeting to discuss topics affecting Catholic-Jewish relations twice a year for more than two decades, made public today (August 12) a document entitled Reflections on Covenant and Mission.

Citing the growing respect for the Jewish tradition that has unfolded since the Second Vatican Council, and the deepening Catholic appreciation of the eternal covenant between God and the Jewish people, the Catholic portion of the
Reflections says that "campaigns that target Jews for conversion to Christianity are no longer theologically acceptable in the Catholic Church."

"This joint reflection marks a significant step forward in the dialogue between the Catholic Church and the Jewish community in this country," said Cardinal William Keeler, the U.S. Bishops" Moderator for Catholic-Jewish relations. "Here one can see, perhaps more clearly than ever before, an essential compatibility, along with equally significant differences, between the Christian and Jewish understandings of God's call to both our peoples to witness to the Name of the One God to the world in harmony. This echoes the words of Pope John Paul II, praying that as Christians and Jews we may be 'a blessing to one another' so that, together, we may be "a blessing to the world.'" (Pope John Paul II, On the 50th Anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, April 6, 1993).

EVANGELISM OF JEWS NOT NECESSARY, SAY U.S. CATHOLICS
Washington, D.C., USA .... [Bettina Krause/ANN]
-------------------------------------------------------
Roman Catholic leaders in the United States declared last week that they will no longer target Jews for conversion to Catholicism. According to a document released jointly by the Catholics and a major U.S. Jewish organization, the Old Testament covenant between God and the Jewish people is "eternally valid." The Bishops conclude in their portion of the statement that there is no need for Jews to embrace Christianity in order to receive salvation.

CHRISTIANS CAN'T HIDE MISSION ROLE IN TALKS WITH JEWS, CARDINAL SAYS

VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- In their relations with Jews, Christians cannot conceal the strong missionary dimension of their faith, but also must recognize that Jews do not have to convert in order to be saved, a top Vatican official said. Cardinal Walter Kasper, president of the Vatican's Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews, said Nov. 6 that Christians take a different missionary approach toward Jews than toward followers of other non-Christian religions. That's because Christians and Jews share a long biblical and religious tradition, a belief in the same God and a conviction that God will complete human history, he said. The main difference between the two faiths -- the salvific role of Jesus Christ -- must also be acknowledged, he said. Cardinal Kasper spoke at the Center for Christian-Jewish Learning at Boston College. His text was made available to
Catholic News Service by his office at the Vatican.


Pray for those that still think the Vatican is a Christian organization. MANY are now seeing no reason to be saved thanks to the lies spewing from Rome! They ALL KNOW that Jews deny Christ, and since the Vatican says Jews are guaranteed Heaven, why bother getting saved now eh? Pray for them!

Any babe in Christ with a competent knowledge of basic Christianity knows full well that the Jews NEED to be told about Jesus just as much as the Muslims, Buddhists, or any other non-Christian religion. In fact, Jesus Himself preached ONLY to Jews while walking this earth for the three and a half years before the cross! Plus the Apostles preached ONLY to the Jews for three and a half years after Christ ascended as well! It wasn't until the 70 weeks of Daniel's prophecy were fulfilled were the Apostles told it was ok now to preach to Gentiles. (That 7 year period makes up the "week of Daniel" most false prophets re-write as a "7 year trib" lie) Still, this doesn't mean we no longer evangelize the Jew! Did Jesus lie when He said...

Matthew 28:19-20, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen."

The Lord Jesus Christ told Jewish leader Nicodemus...

John 3:7, "Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again."

Later in that same sermon, Christ explained how to be born again. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16). All men, need salvation! That includes Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, etc, must be born again through personal faith and acceptance in Christ. The Apostle Paul said of the Jews...

Romans 10:1, "Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved."

Does not Rome see this? Can they not see that this means they WERE NOT saved when Paul said this? Why?

Romans 10:2-4, "For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.  For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.  For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth."

Fact is people. What we see coming from Rome is 100% unadulterated antichristian teachings that MUST be preached so that Satan can arrive and stand before man AS Jesus Christ incarnate. This StRaNgE end time doctrinal spin doctoring of the precious Word of God is a no-brainer folks. Antichrist is getting the people ready! Those that have eyes to see this, SEE IT!

Far better is this thought to dwell on... THIS PROVES Jesus Christ will be here VERY soon! MARANATHA!! (Yes Come Lord Jesus!)

I wonder.. do you think the enemy is once again trying to STOP the inevitable, like he did back when he tried to kill ALL the Jews hoping "this generation" would not see the second coming? The final prophecy states...

Matthew 24:14, "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come."

Being Catholic 29 years before I left the Synagogue of Satan, I know that the church does NOT push "evangelizing" of the Catholic faith in anyway. And it especially does NOT push preaching the Gospel FROM the Bible. At least not in the numerous parishes I resided in. So, telling the Catholic people not to preach to Jews is really just a "public relations" ploy as far as I can tell. Fact is, the REAL Christians are going to spread the Good News no matter how much the Vat of sin declares otherwise. In fact, soon there will be laws to try and stop us from doing that very thing. Will we?

Don't count on it!


PRIEST SAYS JEWS AND MUSLIMS GO TO HEAVEN.
Friday Church News Notes, April 26, 2002 (David W. Cloud, Fundamental Baptist Information Service, P.O. Box 610368, Port Huron, MI 48061, 866-295-4143,
fbns@wayoflife.org

Catholic priest Michael Manning was interviewed by Larry King on December 1, 2001. King, who is a Jew, asked, "Now Father, if you don't believe in Christ when you die, are you going to hell?" Manning replied: "No, not at all. It's the Catholic belief that Jesus is the source of salvation, Jesus is God; we believe that. But what [do] we say to the millions and billions of people who don't even know about Jesus, are they just thrown into hell? Or what about a Rabbi who really follows the Lord as best he can? As a Catholic, I'm very comfortable that he attains salvation by doing this." King then asked, "So he achieves it without believing in Christ?" Manning replied, "Correct." King asked, "[H]ow do you view Mohammed?" Manning replied: "As a very wise man. I see the beauty of Islam in a very strong way. A simple approach to God. . I'm very touched by Ramadan, by the fasting; the beautiful presence of God and the power of God. And as a Catholic, I need
to learn from that."


ARE BELIEVERS OF OTHER RELIGIONS SAVED?
6-Sep-2000 -- ZENIT News Agency

Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger Responds

 VATICAN CITY, (ZENIT.org) - "How is it possible to explain the unique character of Christ and of the Catholic Church to a Jew or a Lutheran, a reporter asked Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, prefect of the Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, during a press conference to present the "Dominus Jesus" declaration, which is concerned, precisely, with the unique and universal salvation of Christ and the Church.

Referring to a believing Jew, Cardinal Ratzinger clarified that "we are in agreement that a Jew, and this is true for believers of other religions, does not need to know or acknowledge Christ as the Son of God in order to be saved, if there are insurmountable impediments, of which he is not blameworthy, to preclude it.  However, the fact that the Son of God entered history, made himself part of history, and is present as a reality in history, affects everyone.".


Ratzinger "as Pope" now declares...

Nonbelievers Too Can Be Saved, Says Pope
Refers to
St. Augustine's Commentary on Psalm 136(137)

VATICAN CITY, NOV. 30, 2005 (Zenit.org).- Whoever seeks peace and the good of the community with a pure conscience, and keeps alive the desire for the transcendent, will be saved even if he lacks biblical faith, says Benedict XVI.

The Pope made this affirmation today at the general audience, commenting on a meditation written by
St. Augustine (354-430).

On a rainy morning in
Rome, the Holy Father's meditation, addressed to more than 23,000 people gathered in St. Peter's Square, concentrated on the suffering of the Jewish people in the Babylonian exile, expressed dramatically in Psalm 136(137).

The Pontiff referred to Augustine's commentary on this composition of the Jewish people, noting that this "Father of the Church introduces a surprising element of great timeliness."

Augustine "knows that also among the inhabitants of
Babylon there are people who are committed to peace and the good of the community, despite the fact that they do not share the biblical faith, that they do not know the hope of the Eternal City to which we aspire," Benedict XVI stated.

"They have a spark of desire for the unknown, for the greatest, for the transcendent, for a genuine redemption," explained the Pope, quoting Augustine.

This spark

"And he says that among the persecutors, among the nonbelievers, there are people with this spark, with a kind of faith, of hope, in the measure that is possible for them in the circumstances in which they live," the Holy Father continued.

"With this faith in an unknown reality, they are really on the way to the authentic
Jerusalem, to Christ," he clarified.

Continuing with his quotes from Augustine, the Pope added that "God will not allow them to perish with
Babylon, having predestined them to be citizens of Jerusalem, on the condition, however, that, living in Babylon, they do not seek pride, outdated pomp and arrogance."

The Bishop of Rome concluded by inviting those present to pray to the Lord "that he will awaken in all of us this desire, this openness to God, and that those who do not know God may also be touched by his love, so that all of us journey together toward the definitive City and that the light of this City might also shine in our time and in our world."

It's bad enough that this Pope is echoing the words of his predecessor when saying you don't need Jesus as Saviour to gain Heaven. He is now proclaiming our God in Heaven one that is more concerned with the "community" of man then His truth. As many know, Ratzinger (Pope Benedict IVI) has admitted to being a Nazi soldier. Does his present day theology reflect his Nazi upbringing? You tell me…

 When asked about...  "Liberation theology." Ratzinger said.. "The 'absolute good' (and this means building a just socialist society) becomes the moral norm that justifies everything else, including--if necessary--violence, homicide, mendacity." Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger ~  US News & World Report, Dec 2, 1985  (Online source click here)

Ratzinger’s terminology defined...

  • Liberation theology is defined as "Communism and Christianity mixed."
  • Mendacity is simply defined as "lies."

Communism is evil no matter how much the New World Order pushers says otherwise. It is the ultimate community over the individual. What’s good for the community is what rules the person. If you as a person upset the order, it is better for you to die then the whole community to suffer loss. Now read the following quote from quite a few years ago that were in fact uttered by the proverbial "father' of this mindset.

"'It is thus necessary that the individual should finally come to realize that his own ego is of no importance in comparison with the extistence of his nation; That the position of the individual ego is conditioned solely by the interests of the nation as a whole... that above all the unity of a nation's spirit and will are worth far more than the freedom of the spirit and will of an individual...'"

"This state of mind, which subordinates the interests of the ego to the conservation of the community, is really the first premise for every truly human culture... The basic attitude from which such activity arises, We call - to distinguish it from egoism and selfishness - idealism. By this we understand only the individual's capacity to make sacrifices for the community, for his fellow man.' -The Ominous Parallels, by Leonard Piekoff P 13

Sounds like and echo of John 11:50 where it says...

  • John 11:50, "Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not."

Their main excuse to kill our Lord was that He should die so that the NATION as a whole wouldn’t perish. That is the ultimate communistic ideal! This is exactly what both Ratzigner and this quote are saying.

Now.. Before sharing who the author is of these statements in Piekoff’s book that are a direct echo of Ratzinger’s communist “Liberation theology.” Who do you think it is that made these remarks? John F Kennedy? Abraham Lincoln? Ronald Reagan perhaps? Finishing the excerpt it says this…

These statements were made by Adolph Hitler. He was explaining the moral philosophy of Nazism. (as described by William Shirer in The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich): -The Ominous Parallels, by Leonard Piekoff P 13

It’s no mistake people. John Paul II was elected at an EARLY age so as to be able to gather almost all the nations to Rome’s side in one Pontificate. That is why he was elected at age 57 instead of 77 like most popes. Thanks to John Paul II’s tireless efforts of gathering all countries to Rome’s camp, as of January 10, 2005 the Vatican now has 174 of the 192 countries in 100% agreement with Rome’s agenda. And now they have “God’s enforcer” or “God’s rottweiler” standing as pope so as to move to the next step.

Think on it this way. When the "Liberation Theology" of Ratzinger comes to fruition. The "individual" will become non-existent and worthy of extermination. The "community" will then become the voice of the people. That way, the majority of the world, which are already in Satan's control, will become the voice of the people. When the small Remnant of God refuse to break God's Law, their actions are looked upon as a PROBLEM for the "community" at large. Then you will see the Remnant being killed so that the "world" doesn't perish! They will ultimately mimic the Pharisidical desire of old when they thought it best that Christ should die so that the "community" wouldn't perish.
