For the Catholic Visitor
By Nicholas
Apr. 18, 2008
Due to the pope's visit, the RemnantofGod.org website has seen a large increase in hits this week. I assume the new influx of visits are coming mostly from Roman Catholics searching online for news about their Pope. At least the increase in hate mail appears to suggest this to be the case. (I forgive you all) With that said, I would like to take this opportunity to share with those visiting a few quotes from previous popes and prelates of the Roman Catholic church. Keep in mind as you read these quotes, that all modern day popes and prelates have been asked about these documents. Not one of them has ever recanted personally or by proxy, or even stated the quotes were unfortunate or false in any way. If you are a Catholic, would it not make sense to ask your parish priest about such quotes? This is your church is it not? Actually, if you do, you will be told they are false as I was told back when I was a Catholic 23 years ago. To help you along, I have supplied the sources for each quote so that you can look them up for yourself. With the help of Internet search engines you can look up these quotes by excerpt or by the source itself. It's not like it was years ago where you had to sit in libraries for hours on end searching through books. Since it's so easy today to do so, I implore you to please check into this! To see some blunt revelations, try this. Don't let your priest know you already dug up proof that these quotes are authentic. Just ask him the question and watch this supposed man of God lie to you. What does this say about the man you trust to share Jesus Christ to you and your loved ones?

Popes claiming to be God on Earth:

  • "It seems that Pope John Paul II now presides over the universal Church from his place upon Christ's cross," said Bishop Dunn, who traveled with seven other prelates to Rome. Taken from an article entitled, "Auckland Bishop Says Pope Presides From the Cross" AUCKLAND, New Zealand, SEPT. 20, 2004 -Zenit.org (Article # ZE04092001)
    (Also note the term "Universal Church" is now being used!)  
  • "...the Pope is as it were God on earth, sole sovereign of the faithful of Christ, chief of kings, having plenitude of power." Lucius Ferraris, in "Prompta Bibliotheca Canonica, Juridica, Moralis, Theologica, Ascetica, Polemica, Rubristica, Historica", Volume V, article on "Papa, Article II", titled "Concerning the extent of Papal dignity, authority, or dominion and infallibility", #1, 5, 13-15, 18, published in Petit-Montrouge (Paris) by J. P. Migne, 1858 edition. .
  • -Pope Nicholas I declared that "the appellation of God had been confirmed by Constantine on the Pope, who, being God, cannot be judged by man." - Labb IX Dist.: 96 Can. 7, Satis evidentur, Decret Gratian Primer Para.
  • "God separates those whom the Roman Pontiff, who exercises the functions, not of mere man, but of the true God (...) dissolves, not by human but rather by divine authority." -Decretals of Gregory IX», Book 1, Chapter 7.3
  • The title "Lord God the Pope" is found within a gloss of Extravagantes of Pope John XXII, title 14, chapter 4, In an Antwerp edition of the Extravagantes, the words, "Dominum Deum Nostrum Papam" (Our Lord God the Pope) can be found in column 153. In a Paris edition, they are found in column 140.

Vatican declares its hatred for Bible believers

  • "On August 24, 1527, Roman Catholics in France, by prearranged plan, under Jesuit influence, murdered 70,000 Protestants within the space of two months. The Pope rejoiced when he heard the news of the successful outcome."-Western Watchman, Nov.21, 1912 (Catholic publication)
  • "Experience teaches that there is no other remedy for the evil, but to put heretics (Protestants) to death; for the (Romish) church proceeded gradually and tried every remedy: at first she merely excommunicatied them; afterwards she added a fine; then she banished them; and finally she was constrained to put them to death." -Cardinal Bellarmine famous champion of Romanism cited by Schumucker p. 76
  • "The Catholic Church has persecuted ... when she thinks it is good to use physical force she will use it... Will the Catholic Church give bond that she will not persecute?... The Catholic Church gives no bonds for her good behaviour." -Western Watchman, Dec. 24, 1908
  • March 12, 2000, Pope John Paul II ADMITTED the Roman Catholic Church KILLED the believers and does NOT know the Father or Jesus. To deny that, is to deny the very words of Jesus Christ. See proof here... -Pope and Forgiveness?-

Quotes of Popes declaring Mary worthy of worship:

  • On May 7 Pope John Paul II dedicated his general audience to "the Virgin Mary" and urged all Christians to accept Mary as their mother. He noted the words spoken by Jesus on the cross to Mary and to John--"Woman, behold thy son!" and "Behold thy mother!" (John 19:26,27), and he claimed that in this statement "IT IS POSSIBLE TO UNDERSTAND THE AUTHENTIC MEANING OF MARIAN WORSHIP in the ecclesial community ... which furthermore is based on the will of Christ" (Vatican Information Service, May 7, 1997).
  • John Paul II underlined that "the history of Christian piety teaches that MARY IS THE PATH THAT LEADS TO CHRIST, and that filial devotion to her does not at all diminish intimacy with Jesus, but rather, it increases it and leads it to very high levels of perfection." He concluded by asking all Christians "to make room (for Mary) in their daily lives, ACKNOWLEDGING HER PROVIDENTIAL ROLE IN THE PATH OF SALVATION" (Ibid.).

2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 says, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."

I pray that all visiting this website realize that Presents of God ministry has not been called to attack the Roman Catholic people within their Church. Please understand that prophecy directly identifies the popes of Roman Catholicism as Antichrist and not the individual Catholics therein. There are many sincere children of the Creator God in all churches, including the Church of Rome. If the Lord can "wink" at my ignorance as Acts 17:30 says is a blessing we all receive. Who am I to assume you won't receive the same blessing? The prophecies in your bible are merely a collection of predictions, characteristics, and judgments upon the Roman Catholic Vatican, which prophecy directly identifies as the entity that mixes paganism with Christianity.

Of course there are many prophecies in the Scriptures that point out errors, demonic doctrines, traditions of men, etc. in all religions Christian, and non-Christian alike. The fact of the matter remains that the elect of the Lord, no matter what church they are standing in at this time will always accept correction from their loving Heavenly Father and do as Revelation 18:1-4 declares. They will not turn a deaf ear, a blind eye, or a cold heart to the Truth provided in His Holy Word when it is made known unto them. It is for these children; the past, present, and future members of the remnant of God that we proclaim this Three Angels message of Revelation.

One last thing. Many Catholics call me a "Catholic basher." Yet I am never found to use anger, hatred, insults, name calling or threats on or offline in all 23 years of this ministerial calling. However, in the "Council of Trent" which was re-confirmed by "Vatican 2" you will find over 100 "anathemas" against all non-Catholic people. The word "anathema" defined is, "condemn them to the flames." If your own popes and prelates use such hatred against their fellow man and even go so far as to put such words in print. I ask you a simple and honest question. Who is bashing who?

  • "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." -Revelation 18:4

When a man who is honestly mistaken hears the truth,
he will either quit being mistaken or cease to be honest!

Papal Spindoctoring of Pedophilia
 By Nicholas
Apr. 16, 2008
I would like to share what Joseph Ratzinger, aka Pope Benedict XIV said the other day at the end of this article, but first I need to share what was uncovered back in 2005 regarding this man's contribution to the child molestation scandal still rocking the Vatican Sodomites today. I've shared this years before of course in numerous areas of the site, but his recent visit to D.C., and strange statements to the media forced me to dust off some of the facts he appears to have forgotten about his own highly publicized, but later swept under the rug child molestation legal problems. Oddly enough, this article, as strange as the topic may be, actually does have a prophetic base to it. Christian prophecy is an amazing thing. It has been declared many thousands of years ago that the Pagan attired prelates of the Roman Catholic church would in fact be mostly homosexual men. Speaking of these Vatican men, Daniel the prophet said...

  • Daniel 11:37, "Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all."

What bothers me the most about all this is how the popes and men like them use their power to escape prosecution for crimes the common man would be jailed and even executed for. They do this on a daily basis in Rome. But when an innocent child is brought into the mix, and they do all they can to hide from such crimes, it is our duty to expose them for what they are so that others may choose a better path. Especially when we have literally tens of thousands of witnesses against them and their actions.

  • 1 Timothy 5:19-20, "Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.  Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear."

Joseph Ratzinger was elected head of the "Holy Office" which was re-instated by John Paul II back in 1991. This office was more commonly known in the past by it's infamous name. That being "the office of Inquisition." Ratzinger stated while in office to those priests that were caught in molestation scandals that his office would take care of things for them.

...a May 18, 2001, letter from Ratzinger written in Latin to bishops around the world, explaining that "grave" crimes such as the sexual abuse of minors would be handled by his congregation and that the proceedings of special church tribunals handling the cases were subject to "pontifical secret." -Associated Press Tuesday Sept. 20, 2005.

Ratzinger was directly involved in helping many priests escape prosecution for such awful crimes. Being the head of an office with a specific agenda to do such a work means he was "the" worst villain in this scandal that has been known to terrorize little boys in nightmarish ways for hundreds of years. It is also obvious that John Paul II was involved in this as he was the one that placed Ratzinger in position to "handle things" with the foreknowledge that later, when the heat was turned up, Ratzinger would be able to step into the office of Pope and completely escape prosecution. In a letter to all priests written by Ratzinger in Latin, and translated to English, he stated the following...

..."Crimine solicitationies" law (regarding strict secrecy in sex abuse cases) is still in effect. ...Bishops are instructed to pursue these cases `in the most secretive way... restrained by a perpetual silence... and everyone... is to observe the strictest secret which is commonly regarded as a secret of the Holy Office... under the penalty of excommunication'.

Entire letter (Latin version)

This document proves that 100% of each and every priest in the Roman Catholic church today have been sworn to secrecy by their leaders in Vatican City! This letter was sent to ALL churches as a memo from Rome. Such a memo is considered holy and very powerful in content. All priests are very much aware that to deny or ignore such a document means excommunication from the church. This is why they clam up as they do when approached on this topic. Speaking out can cause them to be unemployed and found outside the church selling scapulars in a tin cup. What's worse, Ratzinger has been doing this a lot longer then most first realized. In a British Documentary it was uncovered the following facts.

Over 20 years, the man formerly known as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger enforced a secret 1962 document on how bishops should deal with allegations of child abuse which included a code of secrecy, enforceable by excommunication, the BBC Panorama investigation said.


When a pope dies, the prelates of Rome, in this case "Cardinals," gather under the Dean of Cardinals to discuss and pray about the next pope to be elected. When the man is finally chosen, the dean is supposed to stand before the prelate to ask, "Do you accept your canonical election as Supreme Pontiff?” If the answer is yes, he becomes pope. Strange thing is, when John Paul II died, Joseph Ratzinger was not only the Dean of Cardinals, he was also the only high standing Vatican Official in the history of the Roman church ever to have court documents from a child rape lawsuit served directly to his hand.

Many lawsuits stemming from the U.S. church sex abuse crisis have named the pope, the Vatican and other high-ranking church officials, but they failed because the officials could never be served with the papers. This case got further than most because Ratzinger was actually served with the documents.


Do you find it odd that the dean of Cardinals is suddenly elected as the pope? Do you suppose they dispensed with Vatican "tradition" in this case to bypass the norm and elect the Ratzinger so as to help him, "a high standing Cardinal," avoid prosecution in the largest and most graphic case against a high ranking official in Rome concerning the rape of thousands of boys? Such a scandal brought forth from inside Vatican walls would have been the worst disaster that church had ever witnessed, second only to the prophecied mortal wound administered by Napoleon in 1798.

ROME —  The U.S. Justice Department has told a Texas court that a lawsuit accusing Pope Benedict XVI of conspiring to cover up the sexual molestation of three boys by a seminarian should be dismissed because the pontiff enjoys immunity as head of state of the Holy See.

Assistant U.S. Attorney General Peter Keisler said in Monday's filing that allowing the lawsuit to proceed would be "incompatible with the United States' foreign policy interests."

There was no immediate ruling from Judge Lee Rosenthal of the U.S. District Court for the southern district of Texas in Houston. However, U.S. courts have been bound by such "suggestion of immunity" motions submitted by the government, Keisler's filing says.

A 1994 lawsuit against Pope John Paul II, also filed in Texas, was dismissed after the U.S. government filed a similar motion.

Keisler's motion was not unexpected, as the Vatican Embassy in Washington had asked the U.S. government to issue the immunity suggestion and do everything it could to get the case dismissed.

The former Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was named as a defendant in a civil lawsuit by three plaintiffs who allege that Juan Carlos Patino-Arango, a Colombian-born seminarian on assignment at St. Francis de Sales church in Houston, molested them during counseling sessions in the church in the mid-1990s.


This was just "one" lawsuit out of many more that was shot down. Once this one was "dismissed" the flood of other lawsuits had no chance whatsoever. With all this neatly tucked into his deep dark closet, Joseph Ratzinger, aka Pope Benedict XVI had the boldness of a child predator to state the following to the news media.

Traveling on his first papal journey to the United States, Pope Benedict XVI confronted the clergy sex abuse scandal, saying Tuesday that he was "deeply ashamed" of the problem and vowing to keep pedophiles out of the priesthood. ...Benedict pledged that pedophiles would not be priests in the Catholic Church.


We have this man on record in his own Latin documents (translated in English) declaring to keep the child rapists a secret in his church. He has proclaimed a false vow before God and man in this article! We know he is lying as well when he declares he is "deeply ashamed." His known works to protect and hide these child rapists for decades have found him out. The Pope also stated in the article that he would "pledge" to keep child rapists out of his church. Yet more priests are still being arrested since he became pope!

We now have rock hard evidence that had he not been elected Pope, he would be in court, and most likely prison today. He has escaped the prosecution of man, yes. But the Creator of man is his next Judge. A Judge no man escapes. Pray for Joseph Ratzinger. He too can be saved. Yes, some may be shocked at that statement. With fleshly eyes we see a man who boldly denies Christ Jesus as Lord, and pretends to stand as a god on earth. Before our eyes he looks lost and hopeless. But we are not this man's judge. He must answer to the True Judge who knows his heart. We cannot see his heart, and we cannot know if he is a reprobate. Only Christ knows this.



Creating a god
By Nicholas
Apr. 14, 2008
As I stated in the previous article, Pope Benedict XVI is scheduled to visit the United States between April 18, through the 20th this year. What I didn't share is that the media frenzy associated behind it. A frenzy designed to glorify the pope above the God we worship. Yes, this is common practice for the media and powers that be to make such a fuss for a mere man. We have all witnessed how every time the Pope makes a visit to any nation they flaunt him before the people as if he is a god on earth. Only the pope can cause literally tens of thousands of cameras to seek him out each place he visits. He seeks fame and worship, he has his reward!

  • Matthew 6:2, "...do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward."

Only the pope can draw a million or more to adore him when he steps out in his Gucci shoes, which by the way prove he cares not for the starving souls. The pope dwarfs any pomp and circumstance any head of state anywhere in the world could muster. 174 out of 192 national leaders on Earth have not only bowed before him in worship recently, they have been photographed actually performing the very act of worship upon the pope for all to see. This lends credence to their claim he is worthy of worship! And they do claim such a thing by calling him another god on earth.

The Vatican doctrines have found their way into absolutely every denomination on earth with the exception of the smallest and most blessed that was prophecied to be active these last days exposing him as the man of sin. Vatican political policy has changed the laws of every nation, including those that have yet to bow in public worship. They worship him without even knowing at times. This is how the pope can slither his way past their personal defenses. He displays ancient Vatican law before them and opens their legislative books to show they have already been in compliance for centuries. This is how they got the churches so easily. Many so called religious leaders have even gone on record to declare the popes "god on earth" to further condition the minds of the sheeple into worshiping this modern day Caesar.

"we readily understand the devotion of Saint Francis of Assisi for 'the Lord Pope', the daughterly outspokenness of Saint Catherine of Siena towards the one whom she called 'SWEET CHRIST ON EARTH', "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." -Ferraris Ecclesiastical dictionary

Father A. Pereira says: "It is quite certain that Popes have never approved or rejected this title 'Lord God the Pope,' for the passage in the gloss referred to appears in the edition of the Canon Law published in Rome in 1580 by Gregory XIII."

 More quotes

Some religious leaders have gone so far as to declare the pope to be upon Christ's cross aiding in the work of salvation.

"It seems that Pope John Paul II now presides over the universal Church from his place upon Christ's cross," said Bishop Dunn, who traveled with seven other prelates to Rome. Taken from an article entitled, "Auckland Bishop Says Pope Presides From the Cross" AUCKLAND, New Zealand, SEPT. 20, 2004 -Zenit.org (Article # ZE04092001)

 More quotes

The media itself has declared the pope to be god each time they declare him "Holy Father." One does not need post the millions of quotes regarding same simply because every man, woman and child on earth have seen them use this title at least 100 times in the last week alone. A title by the way, first used by Jesus Christ when speaking to His Heavenly Father during a prayer recited in John 17:11. A title, that if placed in association with any other man then Christ Jesus is biblically defined as blasphemy in Scriptural doctrine as well as one of "the" identifying features of Antichrist in prophecy.

Scriptural doctrine says...
John 10:33, "The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God."

Prophecy says...
Revelation 13:1, "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy."  

Even the Pope himself declares himself a god on earth so as to further condition the masses into accepting what they have already been listening to via the TV., radio, newspapers, preachers, priests, and nuns all their natural lives. Only this generation alive today can honestly say every soul on earth has heard this man titled in such a way.

"The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in Heaven and earth." Pope Pius V, quoted in Barclay, Chapter XXVII, p. 218, "Cities Petrus Bertanous".

"The supreme teacher in the Church is the Roman Pontiff. Union of minds, therefore, requires (...) complete submission and obedience of will to the Church and to the Roman Pontiff, as to God Himself." -Leo VIII, «On the Chief Duties of Christians as Citizens», Encyclical letter, 1890

"We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty" -Pope Leo XIII Encyclical Letter of June 20, 1894

 More quotes

And now we have George W. Bush adding to the prophecied Antichrist agenda. This so called, born again Christian president, lends his voice to the many who boldly place the pope in the position prophecied so long ago he would be stationed.

Finally, Arroyo asked him, "...When you look into Benedict XVI's eyes what do you see?" Bush answered immediately, "God."

What we see happening right before our eyes is the prophecied healing of the wound. The Roman Caesar was worshiped as a god, and his descendant in Rome will crave and demand the exact same loyalty today. This is why the media, religious leaders, government leaders, and the Vatican itself places the pope in the position as a god before the eyes of many. The Caesars of Rome demanded worship, and so will the Pope of today. This is the fruit of Paganism. Prophecy does declare Rome will once again rule the world. Only this time the nation of Rome (beast Daniel 7:23) will be by joining with the church (woman Jeremiah 6:2) to get it done. The Pope must stand as Caesar for his power to be realized in the eyes of those who refuse to read or trust bibles. This Caesar has already claimed in a mountain of documented evidence to be god, and will soon demand all agree that he is god and be worshipped with staunch loyalty on earth! Do you suppose they're up for the job? Do you suppose the popes will ever claim to be all that Caesar was?

Pope Pius IX, in his "Discorsi" (I., p. 253), said:  "The Caesar who now addresses you, and to whom alone are obedience and fidelity due."

It's no wonder the pope's and his so called Protestant cohorts preach "Jesus is not needed" for today's ecumenical church. They actually think they can defeat Him and take His place.

They are about to find that "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God."- Hebrews 10:31
