POPE SAYS JESUS NOT NEEDED!
Greetings in these last hours of Earth's history. The events leading up to the second coming of our precious Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ are indeed coming to a close. The "Vat-of-sin" located in Rome is once again confirming its role in prophetic fulfillment. As you will see in this Newsletter, the Pope is seeking a way to make Christianity a passive and easy to attain religion without all the hassles of giving up the sinful desires of the flesh. A religion that literally mimics the Satanic theology of hell, particularly the proposal that "if it feels good do it."
Back in May of 1999 I reported on how the Vatican's rumored choice for the next Pope is declaring to all the world that you do NOT need Jesus as Lord and Saviour in order to gain Heaven. (See ... nl990513.htm) I also shared articles in January of 2000 where Billy Graham and Robert Shuller proclaim Jesus not needed as well. (See ... nl000123.htm) Many of you may recall how I openly declared that this is being done so as to fill the pews of the one world church that prophecy declares must come to be in order to enforce the Mark of this Beast residing in Rome. One June 26, 2000 we saw this prophecy of our Lord accurately fulfilled before the eyes of men. (See ... nl000704.htm)
Many in the Catholic church that receive my Newsletters by way of some subscribers forwarding it to them, have of course declared their disbelief in the articles posted therein. Regardless of the fact that all I post is 100% researchable as well and graphically authentic. Some have declared that, if this is so, these are priests and lay-ministers stepping away form the truth they were called to speak, and therefore the church itself is not at fault. Still some have stated that if and when Pope John Paul gets wind of this heresy, the world would most likely see heads roll. Well take a gander and the following collection of easy to research documented articles. Notice how the Pope is not only aware of this heresy, he signs, seals, and delivers it to all those that have the itchy ears the world over...

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)
According to Pope John Paul, the leader of well over 1 BILLION loyal followers, we see a theology stained in a very open way with the lies of hell itself. This lazy theology is hellishly designed to entice the lukewarm Christian in all walks of life into a faith that can only see his or her God looking to spew them out of His mouth. (Rev 3:16) Pope John Paul is openly declaring Jesus is NOT needed by those that seek the Kingdom of Heaven. Are we now to assume the wicked are going to help the Lord in building His Kingdom? Fact is, there are many non-Catholic Evangelist that looks to the Pope as a man of God is in danger of letting his fire from within burn down when he ponders the thought that the lost soul standing before him is Heaven bound merely because "he's a nice guy." This theological blunder creates in the hearts of those that embrace it a sluggish walk that assumes... "why bother, they're going to Heaven anyway, so why rock their boat? "
This reminds me of a television program I once watched as a young sin filled teenager. It was on public television where I saw them reporting on the so called "life after death experiences." Being Catholic at the time, I believed in the Babylonian doctrines teaching immediate judgment and shuffle off to Heaven or Hell at the moment of death. Kinda like my own "judgment day" if you will. (By the way, that theology makes the Second Coming un-necessary doesn't it?) So, what I was watching was not something strange to me, because my Catholic teachers taught it to me. On the television program was this obviously drunken biker with mercenary symbolism tattooed on his body as well as etched into his clothing. He was speaking on his recent experience with death. I knew about the symbols in his tattoos because I hung with bikers at this time in my life and was somewhat educated in their lifestyle. This biker stated, in between drags on his cigarette, that one day he had a few two many brewski's at the local gin mill. On his way home he had a bit of a snafu with the explosive mixture of human flesh, bones, alcohol, speed, pavement, and a Harley Davidson motorcycle. When the paramedics arrived and saw him laying there without a pulse, they figured he was a goner. In fact, the biker did breath his last that day according to the paramedic on duty. While he was "dead" the biker related on how he went to Heaven and had a brief chat with Jesus. When I saw this I figured I was guaranteed Heaven without question! I thought, IF this murderously sin filled biker, who had proof on his body as well as his clothing that he has killed people is going to Heaven, then this punk teenager (me) with his puny little sin filled life must have Heaven tapped! I thought I was guaranteed Heaven simply because this biker on the TV who is a drunk, a smoker, a foul mouth, and a murderer is going to Heaven! So why not me?
Now think about how I felt as a youth when I saw that biker's testimony, and think about all those teenagers as well as adults out there hearing the Pope spewing such things like, "all of the just on Earth, including those who ignore Christ and his Church" were "called upon to build the kingdom of God" Think about all those Muslims, Buddhists, Atheists, or just plain back-slidden Christians that look to this Pope as a religious leader. Seriously! Think about how YOU were before you met Christ. Think about how easy it was to grab hold of any and all opportunities that would come your way allowing you to get out of doing something. Especially something like being a Christian! For thousands of years the Devil has been trying to convince the people of the world that being a Christian is TOO HARD! Well, now he has a wonderful alternative doesn't he? And in our day no less. This day of fast foods, microwave ovens, cable modems, and concord jets, screams for a fast food Jesus at every turn. This Popetanic idea reeks of "instant Salvation" in a cup! Just add "good works" and poof! Your Heaven bound! No up's, no extras, and no questions asked! I wonder, is there a 30 day guarantee with that theology? Please understand I am not looking to be sarcastic. I am however, looking to be blunt. And thus far, that's the only way I know how to do it.
Does it get worse? You tell me...
NONBELIEVERS HAVE ROLE IN GOD'S PLAN, POPE SAYS
Urges Collaboration to Build the Kingdom of God
VATICAN CITY, DEC. 6, 2000 (ZENIT.org).- Every person is called to "collaborate" with the coming of the Kingdom of God, John Paul II said, in an urgent appeal for cooperation between believers and nonbelievers. In today's general audience address, the Pope said: "All the righteous on earth, even those who do not know Christ and his Church and who, under the influence of grace, seek God with a sincere heart, are ... called to build the Kingdom of God, cooperating with the Lord who is the first and decisive architect."
And how can one collaborate with the coming of the Kingdom of God? The Pope suggested the beatitudes as the answer. The collaborators of the Kingdom are those who live "as 'poor in spirit,'" he said, "detached from material goods, in order to raise the last of the earth from the dust of their humiliation." -ZE00120606
Did John the Baptist proclaim we must join hands with non-believers and cooperate so as to be ready for the arrival of Messiah? Or did John declare REPENT! FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND! (Mat. 3:2) What the Pope is saying here is no different than what he was preaching in March of 2000 at Korazim Israel. He had that massive pagan depiction of "a Jesus" with the words, ""Love your enemies, I will come soon" hanging behind him as he sat on his throne with the HUGE UPSIDE CROSS on it. He is appealing to the EYES of mankind instead of the HEARTS of mankind.
Another thing that amazes me beyond the obvious ignorance of God's Word in regards to "It is not of WORKS lest any man should boast" from Ephesians 2:9. It's the overwhelming hypocrisy of this Pope and all those before him. He declares all the people of the world must be "detached from material goods, in order to raise the last of the earth from the dust of their humiliation." Well, last I checked, I find that the Vatican is very capable of wiping out ALL third world debt with the funds and resources of its treasury. The Pope also holds enough cash on hand to feed every hungry person the world over. Not to mention the immense price the Pope can obtain if he were to sell but one tenth of all the gold covered statues, picture frames, door handles, candle holders, crowns, crosses, floor tiles, ceiling tiles, lamp fixtures, holy water fonts, gold inlaid furniture, gold twined tapestry, medals, amulets, trays, saucers, cutlery, jewelry, books, etc etc etc. Think of all the people the Pope could feed if he would sell just one twentieth of all the precious works of art all over the walls, ceilings, hallways, rooftops, throughout the Vatican. Also keep in mind this is not only a church, it's a NATION as well! There are literally billions funneling through the Vatican annually in normal governmental procedures. And one more point to ponder. This is JUST the Vatican! There are literally thousands of Cathedrals the world over drenched with gold, works or art, historic artifacts, and CASH. This Vatican is indeed GLOBAL folks! Yet will the Pope practice as he preaches? Don't count on it! For its complete history is documented time after time with statements such as this one. And he makes these ridiculous statements while all the while dripping in literal tons of incalculable wealth! It's merely another prophetic fact. This Vat-of-sin is indeed the Devil's kingdom here on Earth! It embraces ALL the world has to offer, and it clutches it with talons of steal!
Are you wondering as to a main goal besides the obvious? Are you trying to guess why the Pope would have all the world believe that Jesus is NOT necessary for salvation as his "possible" successor stated back in May of 1999? Are you wondering why protestant ministers like Billy Graham and Robert Shuller echo such sewage? June 26, 2000 is the answer! The one world church must be filled in order to enforce the mark of this beast! And what better way than to proclaim to all the world? "JUST BE GOOD AND YOU CAN JOIN OUR CHURCH!" And suddenly all the weak in faith, all the Bible haters, all the lukewarn Christians, and all the non-believers have a place of refuge! Do you know what really happened on June 26? Instantly a church was formed that not only appeals to all Christian, now every Muslim, Buddhist, as well as all the other non-Christian religions of the world can honestly say, "this is a church that embraces my beliefs as well as my neighbors." Sure, there's going to be a few that won't like this world wide group hug. But the Pope is already addressing their concerns as well...
VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope John Paul, delivering an anti-xenophobia message for the New Year, said Monday that people of different cultures will have to live in mutual respect if they want peace in an age of migration and globalization.
What is xenophobia?
1. A fear of foreigners or strangers
a. A type of social phobia
Expect to see many more articles with the Pope, his Cardinals, Bishops, Priests as well as Protestant ministers, Politicians, and reporters echoing his words. It is going to happen folks! The one world government is on the exceptionally near horizon! (See ... nl000908.htm) It is time to repent! It is time to fast! It is time to get right with the Lord! NOW! Don't put it off until you see them on your front lawn or at your back doors looking to force your allegiance as prophecy declares is imminent. It is time for a revival in the hearts of the children of the Lord. RIGHT NOW! It is about to start raining! Will you get wet in the showers of Heaven? Or will you be a pile of dry bones nowhere near the outpouring of the Latter Rain of His Holy Spirit?
A few articles for you to view. Notice the ear tickling going on. Notice the "convenient" Religion being preached in these articles. Notice how they preach how easy it is to become a Christian WITHOUT giving up your sins. Notice this prophecy being fulfilled...
2 Timothy 4:3-4, "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables."

Cardinal Arinze says force has no place in faith matters
By Brooks Egerton
The Dallas Morning News (KRT)
DALLAS - Robert Ashley, news director at Dallas radio station KHVN-AM asks :"So you can still get to heaven without accepting Jesus?"
Cardinal Francis Arinze, who's considered a possible successor to Pope John Paul II replies : "Expressly, yes (he laughs with the audience)."
(c) 1999, The Dallas Morning News. Distributed by Knight-Ridder/Tribune Information Services.
(SEE ENTIRE ARTICLE ... http://www.reporternews.com/1999/religion/arinze0327.html)
That's pretty blunt isn't it? Is there a possibility this could be a typo? Does the Vatican REALLY mean to say Jesus is not necessary? Do you suppose they would repeat such a blasphemy? Notice the following article...
ARE BELIEVERS OF OTHER RELIGIONS SAVED?
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.".
I wonder how many times it will take before ALL the God fearing children of God trapped in this church of hell decide to leave? How many times does the Vatican have to say that JESUS ISN'T NECESSARY FOR SALVATION? How many times? 666 times perhaps?
The main agenda? See the following...
IT'S TIME FOR RELIGIONS TO MERGE OR BUST!
...the great religions MUST be amalgamated. A series of TAKEOVERS is required. The breakup of Christianity should be reversed. The Church of Rome should join hands with that of Constantinople. The rest - Episcopalians, Methodists, Baptists, Seventh-day Adventist should be COAXED IN! The Daily Advance Sunday Jan 4, 1998. Article by Joe Rogally, "The Financial Times"
Has the "coaxing" begun? It appears very much so, yes! A new and improved Religion designed just for the people of the last hours of Earth's history is here! Get your "New and Improved, Faster, Better, Convenient, Easy, No Hassle, Guarantee of Heaven today! Get it while supplies last! And for those of you that call within the next fifteen minutes, we have a complete set of Babylonian Catholic doctrines at no extra charge for you and your loved ones to enjoy all the way through the plagues of Revelation!"
You DO realize that's exactly what they're selling... right? They are literally selling what the human needs in order NOT to see the Truth before them.
For literally hundreds of articles on ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT / CHURCH see these pages... 1wc.htm
One more thing. Don't much care for the one world government? Don't much care for the one world church? Don't want to use the one world currency? Fact is, you'll have your chance to voice any and all complaints here...
Americans May Be Hauled Before International Court
WASHINGTON - You may not know it, but as of now, a treaty signed by President Clinton empowers an international court made up of strangers from foreign lands who have no concept of protections afforded U.S. citizens by their Constitution to reach out and try Americans for any number of charges. The charges, moreover, don't have to have any basis in fact. The servicemen and servicewomen in your town who put on that uniform to defend their country, on the assumption that the country will protect them, may find instead that their country is helpless to do anything about it.... -Newsmax.com

Impossible you say? Check out how one Government Agency of the USA works already. The Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) will take anonymous tips that can be totally fabricated without the slightest bit of evidence, from a totally anonymous source without asking them for identification, and step into your home to investigate you! They can, and have ripped children from the arms of parents because of unfounded reports in the past and will do so again. I know of families personally that have called me in great distress because of this agency. My point is, if you don't believe the government can grab you, throw you in jail, and hold you on trumped up charges. Think again. And for those of you that don't believe the Protestant religious leaders of the world will join hands with the Antichrist in Rome to embrace this fast food Jesus they preach. See this...
CATHOLIC ARCHBISHOP SPOKE AT GRAHAM CONFERENCE.
Friday News Notes, December 29, 2000 (David W. Cloud, Fundamental Baptist Information Service, P.O. Box 610368, Port Huron, MI 48061-0368, firstname.lastname@example.org) - Adrianus Simonis, Catholic archbishop of Utrecht, spoke to the Amsterdam 2000 itinerant evangelist conference in July. The conference was sponsored and funded by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Though Billy Graham was not able to attend in person, his son, Franklin, was in charge. When asked by the press about ecumenical relations with the Catholic church, Franklin Graham replied that his father "had always reached out to all churches and we continue to look to those things with which we agree rather than those things with which we disagree." Archbishop Simonis told the crowd of evangelists, "The Roman Catholic community welcomes you to Amsterdam. There has been an exchange of letters between Billy Graham and Pope Paul dated June 16, 2000." The Roman Catholic archbishop was followed by the president of the modernistic Council of Churches in the Netherlands, Dr. A.H.C. van Eijk, who declared, "We are the same, for personal faith and social action go together. Evangelicals and ecumenicals are one in Christ."
DOBSON AND COLSON VISIT THE POPE.
Friday News Notes, December 22, 2000 (David W. Cloud, Fundamental Baptist Information Service, P.O. Box 610368, Port Huron, MI 48061-0368, email@example.com) - James Dobson and Chuck Colson participated in a conference at the Vatican in late November, and shook hands with the Pope. Dobson said that "with regard to moral issues from abortion to premarital sex, safe-sex ideology, and homosexuality, I find more in common with Catholics than with some of my evangelical brothers and sisters." Dobson spoke at the Pontifical Council for the Family, which was founded by Pope John Paul II in 1981. Of his fellowship at the Vatican, Dobson said: "I felt very comfortable with my new Catholic friends. It was hard for me to leave" (Rocky Mountain News, Dec. 17, 2000). The Bible demands separation from false teachers (Rom. 16:17, etc.), and it is never right to disobey the Bible in order to do good. Further, God's curse is upon those who preach a false gospel (Galatians 1), and it is foolish to think that God's blessing can come from yoking together with those He has cursed.
This from LifeSite.net
Thurs. Dec. 14, 2000 -- James Dobson and Chuck Colson joined business executives, Catholic politicians, lawyers and scholars Nov. 27-29 discussing family issues. Dobson, president of Focus on the Family, and Colson, president of Prison Fellowship, also had a brief meeting with the pope, according to The Gazette of Colorado Springs. "Part of the thing is to get over the hump of knowing each other," said Robert Sirico, a Catholic priest who is president of the Acton Institute, a conservative think-tank based in Grand Rapids Michigan.
Dobson said that he has theological differences with the Catholic Church, but "when it comes to the family, there is far more agreement than disagreement, and with regard to moral issues from abortion to premarital sex, safe-sex ideology, and homosexuality, I find more in common with Catholics than with some of my evangelical brothers and sisters."
Not so many years prior we heard Billy Graham openly declaring the Pope Antichrist. And now we see him AND his son embracing the Pope as well as allowing some of his cohorts to speak at his gatherings. Fact is, this was prophetically perfect. The Almighty does declare in His Word that the "three frogs" will eventually end up on the same lily pad. The devil, the Pope, and the Protestant churches. All one big ecumenical family. The United Religions commencement of June 26, 2000 getting prophetically clearer in your eyes yet?
Revelation 16:13, "And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet."
How far can it get? Will the Catholic church teach you must WORSHIP A CROSS? Will they give the ok to use condoms? Will they teach masturbation perhaps? Will they pay prostitutes to hear them out? Will they ask you to pay nuns to pray for you? Do you think it's possible that the Catholic church would re-write their own false doctrines so as to give masses of drunken Catholics the ok to eat meat on Friday during their pagan season of Lent? Or worse yet, do you suppose the Catholic church will say homosexuality is ok? Do you think they will say children of God embrace homosexuality? Or do you think the Catholic church would condone scantilly clad women on stage, as well as obvious flesh peddling Rock&Roll singers to help the Vatican appeal to the youth?
The Book of Catholic Quotations
p.230 - "The Cross is the watcher of the whole world, the Cross is the adornment of the Church, the Cross is the might of the kings, the Cross
is the strength of the faithful, the Cross is the glory of angels, and the wound of demons"
p.230- "We worship Thy Cross, O Lord, and we glorify Thy holy resurrection."
p.230 - "Morever we worship even the image of the precious and life giving Cross, although made of another tree, not honoring the tree (God forbid) but the image as a symbol of Christ."
My Bible syas... Exodus 34:14, "For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:"
Why does the Catholic church worship the cross? It's actually the symbol of the Sun god Baal. Ancient Pagans would look up at the Sun with their eyes tightly closed. Then they would peer through their eyelashes and tears and see a cross of light form on the Sun in their tears. That is why ancient paintings and carvings of Babylonian outdoor activities showed a cross (like a plus sign) in the sky instead of the Sun. Now see this passage...
Deuteronomy 4:19, "And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven."
That's right. The Catholic church is actually ancient Babylon hidden under the veil of Christianity. Jesus called it a wolf in sheep's clothing did He not? The next time you see the Pope or a priest, notice the "plus sign" type crosses embroidered in their vestments, or on the altars, or on candles, or on curtains, ceilings, tiles, wall tiles, floors, books, video tapes, grave stones, church doors, steeples, rings, jewelry, rosarys, etc etc etc.
Vatican Reopens Condom Debate
September 19, 2000 8:15 am EST
AIDS Crisis Forces Rethink
VATICAN, SEPT. 18, 2000 (CBS News) - In response to the AIDS epidemic devastating Africa, the Vatican has re-opened the debate on the use of condoms. In an article in the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano, Monsignor Jacques Suaudeau, a member of the Pontifical Council on the Family, writes: "If people want to prevent AIDS they must be convinced to change their sexual behavior. Until a real effort is made in this regard...the prophylactic is one of the best ways to contain the sexual transmission of HIV and AIDS."
Where's the boldness in Jesus? Where is the trusting of TRUTH that allows for no compromise? The Pope may as well said it's ok to have premarital sex as long as you use condoms! What is the proper answer to such a question? THE LAW OF GOD! Does the Almighty say use condoms if you can't stop breaking commandments? Does the Lord say drink beer if you have a problem with liquor? Does the Lord declare only tell "white lies" if you can't stop all together? Does the Lord say taper off on your adulterous practices by dating less attractive women or men? Does the Lord say only snort one line of cocaine and hour instead of 2? Are the wages of sin a tummy ache? Or are the wages of sin DEATH?
Isaiah 58:1, "Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins."
CHICAGO, March 28 (UPI) - The Rev. Michael Pfleger wants to pay prostitutes to listen to the gospel. The South Side Catholic priest says parishioners passed the plate Sunday at St. Sabina's Church and raised about $2,000 to pay prostitutes their normal rate to join them to share religious faith. "It actually came out during the sermon last Sunday," Pfleger told WBBM-AM Tuesday. "I was speaking about our need to try radically new approaches to reach people." Pfleger said he challenged parishioners to stop spending money on workshops and to help people in need. "During the sermon somebody looked up and said here's some money and they just started coming from all over the church and placing money on the altar." Pfleger said parishioners would give the prostitutes what they charge for an hour or a half hour, "whatever it is, if they will stand with three or four of us sharing our faith," - United Press International. All rights reserved.
Paying prostitutes for their services regardless if you use them sexually or not is CONDONING the sin they embrace! The Catholic church is actually paying prostitutes for their services! Prostitutes aren't so much addicted to sex as they are to the money if affords them. THAT is their main sin, and that is what the catholic church is now helping them with! Fact is, Hollywood has educated many of us that you can pay a prostitute to just listen to you talk, can you not? So, no matter what you pay a prostitute for, you are paying them FOR THEIR SERVICES! Did Jesus hand Mary Magdeline a few denari as He spoke unto her the Oracles of His Father? Did the Apostles buy a case of wine and slam a few with the drunkards of their day in order to proclaim Jesus unto them? Are we to slain virgins so as to preach Jesus to Satanists? Perhaps we should mainline a few CC's of Heroin to get the attention of a junkie? The Gospel is to draw them AWAY from the sin! Not reward them with the "mammon" they desire!
BEEF ON ST. PATRICK'S DAY IS DILEMMA FOR CATHOLICS
TINA KELLEY c.2000 N.Y. Times News Service
NEW YORK - Catholics are used to giving up meat on Fridays for Lent, but once or twice a decade, they are faced with a clash between tradition and religion: when St. Patrick's Day falls on a Friday, can they eat corned beef with a clear conscience? The answer this year depends more on geography than orthodoxy. The Archdiocese of New York has issued a traditional dispensation permitting its 2.5 million Catholics, who live in Manhattan, Bronx, Staten Island and several upstate counties, to eat meat next Friday, in part because St. Patrick is the archdiocese's patron saint and his day is one of feast. "The application of a dispensation applies to the geographical region you happen to be in, not to you as a person," said David Early, a spokesman for the National Conference of Catholic Bishops. In Fall River, Mass., Bishop Sean O'Malley has not issued a dispensation. But corned beef consumption will be allowed 50 miles away in Boston, where public school students even have March 17 off. Was he concerned about leading the flocks astray, with slabs of corned beef? "I think the man above them will look down at them, and St. Patrick himself, and say `Go ahead. It's a good day to get it,"' he said
From the Church that never changes? Does the term HYPOCRITE mean anything? One minute they claim it's sin to eat meat in the Pagan time of Lent, and the next minute it's ok? Convenient? Ears itching? This article actually confirms my entire newsletter in kudos!
NBC DATELINE 6-29-98 @ 9:00pm REPORTS:
Roman Catholic Church / School in Ft. Lauderdale Florida expelled all the children from the family of Mr & Mrs Anderson as well as excommunicate the Andersons from the Roman catholic church. Why? The Andersons did not want their Church to teach their children the aspects of "Masterbation & Homoexulaity" in their school curriculum along with other very objectional materials. The Andersons have tried for three years to get them to stop. They even tried holding a prayer vigil on the property of the Church. Their Roman catholic Church had the police remove them from the property for praying. The Andersons are actually very devout catholics. Mr and Mrs Anderson even participated in the Mass as Eucharistic ministers. And this is how they are treated because they choose not to allow their children to be taught things that sinful and very disgusting.
No comment! Just plain gut-wrenching disgust!

US nuns for hire in 'pray for pay' deal
BY DAMIAN WHITWORTH IN WASHINGTON
FEEL your relationship with the Almighty needs a little help? Worried that your busy schedule isn't leaving enough time for prayer? A religious order based in New Jersey may have the answer: hire your own nun. Under the scheme run by the Salesian Sisters, an annual donation ensures that a nun will pray for you every day. A minimum donation of $100 (£62) is suggested, but most of the 2,500 people who have signed up so far give considerably more. -the-times.co.uk
Ok... what's the difference now between a Nun and a Psychic? Not much eh? Nuns pray to the dead, psychic speak to the dead. Pray is defined as speaking is it not?
Catholic church declares homosexuality not a sin
Catholic Charities has more than $5 million worth of contracts with the city, but for Levada, more important is Catholic doctrine that says while simply being a homosexual is not a sin... Chgo SunTimes Feb. 16, 1997 Section Religion p. 34 art. S.F., Catholic Charities battle over benefits for gay partners
This statement is in direct conflict with what the Word of God reveals. Both the Old and New Testament confirms this rather bluntly. And one would wonder why the church would take such a stand and make such a statement. Well reading further in the same article it's very easily revealed why Bishop Levada would make such a error filled remark. He it not only pandering to their itchy ears, he is also scratching his own!
Gays and Lesbians are a significant voting bloc in San Francisco. Chgo SunTimes Feb. 16, 1997 Section Religion p. 34 art. S.F., Catholic Charities battle over benefits for gay partners
Did you notice the beginning of the article? It states the church has more than $5 million worth of contracts with the city. Do you think if they would have kept the faith according to God's Word they would have jeopardized their meal ticket in this city by being voted down? YES indeed. It's oh so sad when a church that is trusted by billions of faithful people, falls by deciding to put the "almighty" dollar before the Almighty God. Think of all the trusting souls within this church that may have been wrestling with homosexuality in their lives, or the lives of their loved ones. They just got the final sign they needed to make the decision whether to explore this burning sensation of sin from within themselves. The other outlook is, their family and friends have just been told it's no longer sin, so why bother preaching to their loved ones about the dangers of this sin filled lifestyle. How convenient! How easy to embrace! How loving is this church! They'll let you do whatever your perverted heart desires as long as you keep their pews warm!
By Deepa Babington NEW YORK (Reuters)
It's difficult to say which seems more unlikely: Aerosmith's bad-boy lead singer reciting a prayer written by the Pope, or a credit card stamped with the Vatican's "brand name." Both projects are the brainchild of Rich Garson, whose fledgling company MAXX International Inc. (MXII.OB), aims to strike gold in what he calls the "spirituality marketplace" -- for products and services that fulfill spiritual longings that transcend the lines of organized religion. "It's not about Catholicism, it's about spirituality," said Garson, who was brought up in the Jewish faith. "This Pope knows no spiritual boundaries."
In the brave new world of "spiritual marketing," a veteran rocker like Steve Tyler finds common ground with John Paul II, and imagery by Michelangelo from the Vatican's collection looks smart on a piece of plastic as the logo of the New York Yankees baseball team.
In a CD to be released later this year, the Aerosmith lead singer will join a bevy of other celebrities in reciting verses written by the Pope, someone not normally associated with the pop icons of the world. The CD, called World Voice 2000, will feature everyone from teen sensations Britney Spears and 'N Sync to spiritual guru deepak Chopra and others. ...Garson, 39, who once handled media promotions for Michael Jackson, denies the CD and the Vatican cards are designed solely as money makers, and insists the main motive behind them is a desire to spread the Pope's message. "The project is bigger than us," he said. ...Armed with the rights to the Pope's private prayers, Garson spent the better part of the year making the CD, following celebrities such as Celine Dion to Florida and Spears to Las Vegas to record them reading the Pope's words. ...The Vatican earns a tidy 12.5 percent royalty on the CD and book deals, and as well as a percentage on the card deal, a portion of which will be channeled into its orphanages, Garson said.

THE Pope, whose album Abba Pater released last year has sold more than a million copies, will soon be back in the charts: the pop stars Britney Spears and Ricky Martin are planning a new CD of his prayers. The collection, which could be in the shops by September, is also expected to feature the voices of Celine Dion, the Canadian singer known for her theme song for the film Titanic, and the pop band N Sync. The project has been masterminded by an American producer, Rick Garson, who says it would give hope to the young.
Last year the Pontiff had an audience with the Irish stars Bono and Bob Geldof, and three years ago he attended a pop concert in Bologna with Bob Dylan. He even based his Bologna homily on Dylan's hit, Blowin' in the Wind.
When two years ago, Italian television marked the 20th anniversary of his papacy, he surprised presenters by phoning in to thank them on air. Last year, with his blessing, teams of priests and nuns took part in a fashion show in Rome and sang pop songs in a television karaoke show featuring risque jokes and scantily clad girls.
From rock concerts with openly demonic sex crazed teen idols, to karaoke with foul jokes and sluts? Is the Pope confused about WHICH Rock Jesus said He will build His church upon? I thought the basic LIE of the Vatican is that Jesus said Peter was the "rock" that He would build His church on? Now it appears the REAL god of the Vatican is stepping forth eh? Does the Vatican realize that the Word of God identifies Satan as the former angel called "Lucifer" who actually had musical instruments created IN his body? Does the Vatican realize that Satan himself is the angel of music as well as false light? Obviously not....or wait a minute! Didn't Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo step forward at the Fatima 2000 congress to declare that SATANISM WAS DISCOVERED IN THE VATICAN back in November of 1996?
Excuse me... John Paul II... It is NOT upon "this rock" Jesus will build His church!!!
SO ... WHAT DOES THIS LAZY FAITH OFFER THOSE THAT EMBRACE IT?

Devil defeats the Pope in Vatican exorcism battle
By Bruce Johnson in Rome
THE Pope carried out an impromptu exorcism on a teenage girl after she began "screaming insults in a cavernous voice" during an audience in the Vatican City, it emerged at the weekend. Despite the Pope's efforts and those of his chief "Satan-buster," Fr Gabriele Amorth, the girl remained "possessed." The Devil's voice "sneeringly laughed from within her" at the Pope's failed attempt to drive him away.
"The Devil went to the Vatican," the II Messaggero newspaper in Rome reported after being told of the incident by Fr Amorth. He said the exorcism had been the Pope's third in his 22-year papacy. The paper said that although there may have been other instances of people being possessed in the Vatican, last week's incident had been "spectacular" and Satan had "shown his muscles." The incident occurred during last Wednesday's general audience in a packed St. Peter's Square. Suddenly the unnamed 19-year-old girl from Monza began shouting "in a cavernous voice and as if in a fit of rage."
Constrained by Vatican guards, she was said to have displayed "a super-human strength" as she violently pushed them away. Bishop Gianni Danzi, Secretary-General of Vatican city, intervened and sought to calm her by showing her a crucifix. But she began "insulting him, uttering disconnected phrases, and speaking in unknown tongues."
Fr Amorth claimed that the Vatican had attempted to cover up the affair. He said: "I exorcised the very same girl on (the day before the incident) together with another exorcist, Fr Giancarlo Gramolozzo.
Think about this FACT people. Pope John Paul II, the leader of over 1 BILLION Catholics the world over was TOTALLY unable to exorcise a demon from a young girl! He is the EXAMPLE OF JESUS on Earth? Are we suppose to believe expelling demons is impossible because the Pope can't do it now?
ALL Catholics the World over have absolutely no excuse now! There Pope has just proven beyond a shadow of a doubt he is NOT a Christian! Please understand this simple fact. Pope's are not called to be mere pew warming Catholics. Many people the world over that claim to be Christians cannot expel demons either. But they aren't POPE'S either are they? The Pope is suppose to be THE LEADER of Catholics! THE LEADER! THE ULTIMATE CATHOLIC! He is not suppose to be a mere pew warming Catholic. According to the Popes very words he is not only "another Christ" on earth, he is the "sweet Christ" or the "Lord God Pope" or "Jesus Christ Himself hidden under the veil of flesh" according to a collection of documented quotes I have researched that you can see on this page... nl000804.htm
If this Pope really is as he believes he is, why couldn't the he expel the demon? Well, let's look to the Bible and see if this has ever happened before shall we?
Acts 19:13-16, "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."
These men were not believers. Nor is the Pope.
Isaiah 30:9-10, "That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD: Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:"
Do you realize why the Lord prevented the finishing of the "Tower of Babel?" The Almighty graphically stopped them in their tracks to prevent such a global atrocity. He is about to do it again. You have His Word on it!
Are you ready? Are you sure?
