FLEE FROM IDOLATRY
When the Catholic priest "blesses" the bread and wine, he says the Latin words, "Hoc est corpus meus." In view of the FACT that no change takes place, we can understand how the expression "HOCUS-POCUS" originated with those words. After Christ had blessed the cup, he still called it "this fruit of the vine" not literal blood (Matthew 26:29). Since Christ drank from the cup also, he obviously didn't drink his own blood. The very idea of Christ's "flesh and blood, body and soul, Divinity and humanity" - being offered REPEATEDLY as a "renewal" of the sacrifice of the cross, stands in sharp contrast to the words of Christ on the cross, "IT IS FINISHED" (John 19:30). The Old Testament sacrifices had to be CONTINUALLY offered because none of them were the perfect sacrifice. But now "we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ ONCE for all. For every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins, but this man, after he had offered ONE sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God - for by ONE offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified" (Hebrews10:10-14). So in this modern age in the Catholic Mass the worship of the wafer-god continues. And just like in ancient Egypt, it is still idolatry!!
RATZINGER THE RAT PROTECTED PAEDOPHILES
In 1980, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, who later became Pope Benedict the 16th, did not stop a priest who sexually abused children from taking up new duties in a different parish in Germany. Ratzinger was kept closely informed of the case of Reverend Peter Hullerman who was suspended from his duties in the northern German town of Essen in late 1979 after several parents accused him of paedophilia. A few weeks later in January 1980, Ratzinger, then Archbishop of Munich, led a meeting approving Hullerman's transfer as a priest in the southern Bavarian city. Just days later Ratzinger was sent a memo informing him that the priest would be taking up his duties in Munich within days of beginning pyschiatric treatment even though he was described in the letter as a potential danger. But six years later, in 1986, Hullerman was found guilty of molesting boys in another Bavarian parish. Also, new accusations of child sex abuse against Hullerman emerged during his time in Essen and then later in 1998 in a different southern town. After Ratzinger became Pope, the Vatican sought to defend him against an allegation that he failed to act over a different priest accused in the United States of molesting up to 200 deaf children in the 1970's.
THE VATICAN AND NAZISM
Adolf Hitler, the son of practicing Catholic parents, said the following: "I am now as before a Catholic and will always remain so. I learned much from the Order of the Jesuits. Until now, there has never been anything more grandiose on the earth than the hierarchical organisation of the Catholic Church. I transferred much of this organisation into my own party. I can see Himmler as our Ignatius of Loyola."
THE VATICAN LEGITIMIZES THE THIRD REICH
Cardinal Secretary of State, Eugenio Pacelli, later to become Pope Pius XII, is seen in this photo signing the infamous Concordat between Nazi Germany and the Vatican in 1933. Standing at the far right can be seen the little known Vatican prelate, Montini, later to become Pope Paul VI. Nazi Vice-Chancellor Franz von Papen sitting nearest left of Pacelli said, "The Third Reich is the first world power which not only acknowledges, but also puts into practice the high principles of the Papacy." Cardinal Michael von Faulhaber, who helped negotiate the concordat with Hitler (and who ordained the future Pope Joseph Ratzinger), said in 1937, "At a time when the heads of the major nations in the world faced the new Germany with cool reserve and considerable suspicion, the Catholic Church, the greatest moral power on earth, through the Concordat expressed its confidence in the new German Government." It is then no coincidence that the anti-Semitic Catholic journalist Bernhard Stempfle helped write Hitler's Mein Kampf which was published well before the Concordat was signed!!
THE DEVIL IN DISGUISE
Since he was cursed who rebuilt Jericho, much more the man who labours to restore Popery among us. In our fathers' days the gigantic walls of Popery fell by the power of their faith, the perseverance of their efforts, and the blast of their Gospel trumpets; and now there are some who would rebuild that accursed system upon its old foundations. O Lord, be pleased to thwart their unrighteous endeavours, and pull down every stone which they build. It should be a serious business with us to be thoroughly purged of every error which may have a tendency to foster the spirit of Popery, and when we have made a clean sweep at home we should seek in every way to oppose its all too rapid spread abroad in the Church and in the world. This last can be done in secret by fervent prayer, and in public by decided testimony. We must warn with judicious boldness those who are inclined towards the errors of Rome; we must instruct the young in Gospel truth, and tell them of the black doings of Popery. We must aid in spreading the light more thoroughly through the land, for priests, like owls, hate daylight. Are we doing all we can for Jesus Christ and the Gospel? If not, our negligence plays into the hands of priestcraft. We as Christians must do all we can to spread the message of the Bible, which is the Pope's bane and poison!!
QUEEN OF HEAVEN
CATHOLIC PAGAN FESTIVAL
I am the Lord. That is my name - and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
HISTORY TELLS US THAT THE XMAS FESTIVAL WITH ITS MANY TRADITIONS HAS ITS ORIGIN IN SUN GOD WORSHIP AND THAT THE BIRTH OF THE SUN GOD WAS CELEBRATED BY PAGANS DURING THE WINTER SOLSTICE (25TH OF DECEMBER) LONG BEFORE THE BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST. THE FESTIVAL WAS KNOWN FOR ITS EXCESSIVE EATING, HEAVY DRINKING, AND MUCH MERRY MAKING. THE BIBLE DOES NOT INSTRUCT US TO CELEBRATE THE BIRTH OF CHRIST AND THE BIBLE EVIDENCE POINTS TO THE FACT THAT CHRIST WAS NOT BORN ON THE 25TH OF DECEMBER. IT WAS ONE OF THE POPES WHO FOOLISHLY DECIDED TO MIX PAGANISM WITH THE BIRTH OF CHRIST IN ORDER TO "CONVERT" PAGANS INTO CATHOLICS. THE POPE FIGURED IF THE SUN GOD FESTIVAL CELEBRATED ON THE 25TH OF DECEMBER WAS NOT TAKEN AWAY FROM THE PAGANS, THE "NEW" RELIGION WOULD BE EASIER TO SWALLOW. BY READING A HISTORY BOOK OR CHECKING THE INTERNET PEOPLE WILL LEARN ALL ABOUT THE EVIL FESTIVAL CALLED XMAS. FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO EAT, DRINK, AND BE MERRY ON THE 25TH OF DECEMBER, THAT'S THEIR BUSINESS, BUT THEY MUST UNDERSTAND THAT XMAS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CHRISTIANITY. INSTEAD, THE XMAS FESTIVAL WITH ITS SYMBOLIC DECORATIONS IS SINFUL AND WICKED IDOLATRY!!
SAY NO TO POPERY
The Catholic religion has deceived its followers by telling them they must help EARN their Salvation through the Sacraments, but the Bible teaches that Salvation is a FREE gift through FAITH in Jesus Christ ALONE.
