Can sex sell the Gospel?
(Vatican thinks so)
Most of you know of my stand on "Catholicism" and my
calling to expose the
errors it preaches as dogma. A few days ago I posted the following message
on multiple newsgroups and message boards that generated MUCH controversy as
well as gobs of hate mail. I did receive many
"thank you letters" as well for those of you wondering. It was revealed to
me that I should share it with you folks as well just the other day. I
fervently and honestly pray I do not offend anyone of you with the
documented facts contained here. Keep in mind, I did not write these
articles, nor did I commit these acts. I merely gathered them from official
teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, history books, Encyclopedia's and
the media. The main reason I posted it was because of what the Vatican just
released a few days ago to all the World. The Pope made a music video.
That's right, I said the Pope made a music video. And in the video he shows
a NAKED man and woman for all the world to see! I was shocked and angered
when I read this press release. I decided that ENOUGH'S ENOUGH! I am going
to tell as many as possible about this so they can see with their own eyes
the TRUTH PROVIDED in God's Word!
POSTED 3/99 TO MANY NEWSGROUPS & MESSAGE BOARDS
TITLED: -Pope using SEX to sell Catholicism!!-
That's right people! The Pope of the Roman Catholic Church is using MTV
tactics and SEX to sell the Gospel Message to the world. Notice the two
articles below. They both more or less say the same thing. I pasted a small
excerpt from one of them that is repeated verbatim in both. You can verify
ALL of it by simply going to the URL's I shared. Notice the fact that the
Pope is showing a man and a woman NAKED in his video. NAKED!!! It's bad
enough that he is using a "world beat" in the background as he prays and
unBiblically "chants" his twisted Gospel message. It's bad enough he borrows
the cherished name of the Father in Heaven spoken by His Son Jesus in Mark
14:36 by naming his CD "Abba Pater." It's bad enough he uses "Everything
from chants from Uganda with African percussion, to Slavonic liturgy from
Bratislava, to Celtic flutes to classical" to sell the CD for financial
gain. This Antichrist is now using SEX to sell the message of Salvation to
the World!!! What's this world coming to?
AN END!!! (pgrmenu.htm)
> SONY, VATICAN RADIO PREMIER POPE'S FIRST POP CD, VIDEO
WEEKEND NEWS TODAY
Excerpt from BOTH...
"They showed one video Wednesday: MTV-paced, digitally doctored, rapid-fire
cuts of John Paul embracing children, strolling mountains and dunes,
greeting the faithful, appearing pensive, all to an orchestral background.
The spirit of the video is upbeat and warm, although there's a jarring
moment in which a man and woman appear in profile - naked or near enough to
count as such, for the few seconds they show. ``Abba Pater'' - one of the
cuts on the CD as well as the title - is the Aramaic and Latin for
NAKED????? The Pope is appealing to the EYES of mankind with the LUST of
flesh! Instead of Allowing Jesus to appeal to the HEART of mankind with the
TRUTH of the Spirit!!! LEAVE THIS CHURCH PEOPLE!!!! Heed the call of
Revelation 18:4, "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."
Get out of this graphically proven Church of Antichrist before it's too
late!!! How much graphic proof is needed? How much evidence shall you
ignore? How many must the Lord send your way warning you of these truths?
Here are just a "few" historic and very graphic facts that I have compiled
recently. I will not share ALL of the articles I have, simply because the
file is too large and i do believe you will get the point from what I have
compiled here. This Church is NOT of Jesus Christ!! This Church is designed
to destroy you! GET OUT!!! GET OUT!!! GET OUT!!!!!!
Are these the fruits of a Christian church? Jesus said: MAT 7:20 Wherefore
by their fruits ye shall know them. Not a hard verse to understand is it?
KEEP IN MIND... It's the last days. Jesus warned us in Matthew 7:15, to,
"Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but
inwardly they are ravening wolves." The devil will not tempt you with a
piece of rotted liver if it's a chocolate bar you desire. Nor would he tempt
you with a demon, if it's a "priest" you seek help from.
Remember what Jesus said while reading the articles... "By their fruits ye
shall know them" (Mat 7:20)

Mr. Raywood Frazier, in the booklet "Catholic Words and Actions," presents
documentary proof of the
intensive persecution of Protestants and non-Catholics in Columbia, South
America, between 1949 and 1953. The Catholic Church had the support of the
Columbian government in the destruction of many churches, and the LIQUDATION
of more than 1,000 documented cases -- some of whom were shot, drowned, or
emasculated. He says there is EVIDENCE of over 60,000 killed. Pope Pius XII
AWARDED the President of Columbia with one of the HIGHEST AWARDS which the
Church bestows, and PRAISED Columbia for its EXAMPLE OF CATHOLIC FAITH."
The defense of Roman Catholics to this presentation is as follows:
"Communists destroy churches
because they are God's enemies; Catholic's destroy churches because they are
God's friends... Against such men-founded churches... Catholics in Latin
America should arise and WIPE THEM OUT WIITH FIRE." -John J. Oberlander, in

The rector of the Catholic Institute of Paris, H.M.A. Baudrillart, revealed

"If anyone says that in the holy sacrament of the Eucharist (communion

worship of latria, also outwardly manifested, and is consequently neither to
be venerated with a special festive solemnity, nor to be solemnly borne
about in procession according to the laudable and universal rite and custom
of the holy Church, or it not to be set publicly before the people to be
adored and the adorers thereof are idolaters, let him be ANATHEMA." Ibid.,

"Democracy is a michievous dream where the Catholic Church does not
predominate." -Brownson's Review. "There is one, and only one, sure
democracy, the Catholicism of the Popes" -The Catholic World, Oct, 1937.
"Some dwell on the vastly increased tolerance shown in this country now to
Catholics and Catholic thugs... It betokens a decay of
Protestantism." -Catholic World, Oct. 1935, p.66 "It no longer can be said
today that the U.S. is a Protestant country." -Cardinal Strich of Chicago,
quoted in Time Magazine, Aug. 5, 1955 "The old Protestant culture is about
at the end of its rope... Why can't we make the U.S. Catholic in
legislation, Catholic in justice, aims and ideals?" -Father F. X. Talbot,
editor of America, official jesuit magazine for the U.S. statement in New
York Globe Dec. 14, 1930 "Religious liberty is merely endured until the
opposite can be carried into effect without peril to the Catholic
Church." -Bishop O'Conner of Pittsburg. "If Catholics ever gain sufficient
numerical majority in this country, religious freedom is at an end. So our
enemies say; so we believe" -The Shephard of the Valley, journal of the late
bishop of St. Louis. In the book Confusion Twice Confounded, Monsignor
Joseph H. Brady states that the U.S. Supreme Court is wrong in decisions
regarding "seperation of Church and State." He says: "A sound view of the
Constitution in its relation to religion probably awaits a change in
personnel in our highest tribunal." -The Register, Jan. 23, 1955. "But
Constitutions can be changed, and non-Catholic sects may decline to such a
point that the political proscription [ban] of them may become feasible and
expedient. What protection would they have against a Catholic state?" -The
State and the Church, pp.38,39, by Miller and Ryan, imprimatur of Cardinal
Hayes. "The Catholic Church in this nation must live on to accomplish her
work, even though our Republican form of government disappears." -The
Catholic World, April, 1935, p.12. "They [Catholics] must penetrate wherever
possible in the administration of civil affairs... all Catholics should do
all in their power to cause the constitution of states, and legislation to
be modeled on the principles of the true Church." -Encyclical of Leo XIII.
"Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern
religionists agree with her; --she could not have SUBSTITUTED the observance
of Sunday the first day of the week, for the observance of Saturday the
seventh day, a change for which there is NO SCRIPTURAL AUTHORITY." -Rev.

Church had changed...the Sabbath into Sunday, NOT BY COMMAND OF CHRIST, but

"Is not every Christian obliged to sanctify Sunday and to abstain on that
day from unnecessary servile
work? Is not the observance of this law among the most prominent of our
sacred duties? But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and
you will NOT FIND A SINGLE LINE authorizing the sanctification of Sunday.
The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we
never sanctify." -James Cardinal Gibbons, The Faith of Our Fathers (1917
ed.), pp. 72, 73.
"THE CATHOLIC CHURCH," declared Cardinal Gibbons, "by virtue of her divine
mission changed the day from Saturday to Sunday." Catholic Mirror Sept. 23
1983. (Official organ of Cardinal Gibbons)
Question - Which is the Sabbath day?
Answer - Saturday is the Sabbath day.
Question - Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
Answer - We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the CATHOLIC
CHURCH, in the Council of
Laodicea (A.D. 364), transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday." The
Convert's Catechism of
Catholic Doctrine, p. 50, 3rd ed.
"The Bible says, Remember that thou keep holy the Sabbath day. THE CATHOLIC
CHURCH SAYS, NO! By my divine power I ABOLISH THE SABBATH DAY, and command
you to keep the first day of the week. And lo, the entire civilized world
bows down in reverent obedience to the command of the holy Catholic church!"
