Some churches cancel Super Bowl Sunday services


Having the Green Bay Packers in the Super Bowl apparently is too much competition for some Milwaukee area churches.

The Journal Sentinel reported that rather than going up against the big game, some churches are canceling their Sunday afternoon and evening services this weekend.

St. Francis Borgia Catholic Church in Cedarburg is among churches rescheduling for the Super Bowl. The Rev. Tom Eichenberger said Sunday evening Mass "is a bit of a luxury," and he has no problem canceling a service "when it falls on a legal holy day like Super Bowl Sunday.''

Other churches are sticking to their Sunday schedules but are acknowledging the Super Bowl. Some churches are collecting food and donations to fight hunger as part of the Souper Bowl of Caring

Bowing to the God of FootballPurpose-Driven / Seeker-Sensitive Churches apparently have much more important things to do on Superbowl Sunday than hold evening church services. (Their church services aren't really church services anyway. They are really self-help group therapy sessions with a few Bible verses thrown in to make them sound Christianish.)

Here are two examples.

Football Fans Finally Have Their Own Bible

Finally there is a Bible designed specifically to reach football fans. We were worried that the millions of NFL fanatics out there were going to hell because no one had taken the time to give them a Bible that they could relate with. Everyone knows that football fans only have a one track mind and cannot be reached or communicated with unless someone translates the message into 'Pigskin' (that is the native tongue of football fans)

Traditions of Man

No surprise it was a Catholic Chirch - it seems they love man's traditions more than any other of the churches.

Show me scripture that states that Yeshua stipulated that we should pray to the departed so that they may in turn talk to the Almighty? Why not just talk to Yeshua, He is still sitting on the throne next to Him isn't He?

Catholic Church?

The Catholic Church is full of men's made up traditions, praying to saints and Mary. Are you kidding me?

Catholic Church

How can you make such accusations without proper actual knowledge of the Catholic Church? When we make our supplications to Mary and the Saints they carry our prayers to GOD directly! They aren't worshipped but venerated,nothing more than that!

Why do I need Mary or a Saint?

[16] Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. - [Hbr 4:16 KJV]

Why should I pray to Mary or St. Whoever when I can boldly approach the throne myself through my prayers directly through Christ and the Holy Spirit?

ven·er·ate€‚ €‚
[ven-uh-reyt] Show IPA
–verb (used with object), -at·ed, -at·ing.
to regard or treat with reverence; revere.
Origin:
1615–25; < Latin venerātus, past participle of venerārÄ« to solicit the goodwill of (a god), worship, revere, verbal derivative of vener-, stem of venus, presumably in its original sense "desire; see Venus)

I'm sorry.. Mary was a Sinner and so were all of those that have been given the title "Saint" by the Catholic process. We are all "saints" in that we are covered by the blood of Christ the Messiah. Mary is no better than I am. Even Christ himself showed that Mary has no superiority to the remainder of the redeemed:

[48] But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? [49] And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! [50] For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother. - [Mat 12:48-50 KJV]

Why pray to a sinner when you can pray directly to the one without Sin and he can convey your plea before the Most High?

Mary a sinner?

Can you prove that Mary was a sinner? No you can't, further if Mary was a sinner,then how could she be the vessel that carried the Holy Son of GOD in her womb? For Holy can't be contained in unholy clean can't be clean if put into something dirty, Further even in the Bible Mary is found saying, Luke 1:48
Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid; for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. Blessed also means Holy! and if you had a full actual Holy Bible then you would see where we are told to pray for those who left this world!
2 Machabees 12:46 It is therefore a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead, that they may be loosed from sins.

also, it does say to pray

also, it does say to pray for them, not to them for us. when you pray to Mary or any saint for that matter, your praying to them for us, not for them for their sake. which is what Machabees is sayin'

Mary

Was Mary's mommy clean too?
Because by your logic she must need to have been for Mary to be clean and pure and holy and if Mary was truly sinless, then she should be part of the trinity or we need to start thinking about a fourth person to God Almighty (and in my limited knowledge, I don't see any scripture supporting that)
Is the pope your king? I thought Jesus made us Kings & Priests? Why do you need anyone or anything to communicate between you and God? That is called an IDOL. The Hebrews wanted to go back into slavery too and have a false god/king to rule them. & when they were haste and wanted a king –look who they got. Jesus Christ is King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Deu 5:7 Thou shalt have none other gods before me.
Deu 5:8 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:
Deu 5:9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,

I am a baptised and confirmed Roman Catholic.I fell away because, in my retrospective analysis, I find that it is the popes authority and support for condratictions of the truth that helped push me and others away... Like his support for evilution and the eccumenical movement. When you take the power of creation away from God you are poking at (in my opinion) one of Gods biggest jealousies and creating a ton of confusion in the minds of the youth who are taught one thing in church and another in the classroom -& these are MEANING of LIFE/ Purpose Issues. I think its totally messed up. Then add all the other stuff the RCC has done, changed and supported through the years. I (personally) feel that the pope is a Wolf in Sheeps clothing and an Idol shepherd -now I could be wrong and luckily its not up to me to judge him.

Mary

So if you were once a catholic (And you still are) then how can you doubt about Mary? Don't you remember that the Mother of Mary was barren and was blessed to recieve the gift from GOD of Mary?
and the fact that at a young age after Mary was weened off of natural bodily feeding that Mary was taken to the temple and kept pure and a virgin?
C'mon wake up! Also remember about Pope Leo xiii and his vision?
But yet the Church will withstand all

I Understand

I love this stuff
Saria was barren as well -& I know that she may not have trusted God like it may seem Mary did -but there isn't anywhere that I can see that states she is sinless. If that was so important, I would think it would be mentioned more explicitly. - & why would Jesus instruct John to go take care of her?
I know that I am a catholic & I can see clearly how much of protestant and fundamentalist theology came from Catholic Church fathers. I actually find it acceptable to worship God in a catholic church (as long as there are no all-seeing eyes or other sun/Lucifer symbolism). I know many priests who are great people and have dedicated their lives for Christ –and they really get a bad rap from people who were not raised Catholic –They are, for the most part, exceptionally caring and loving people (from my experience). However, I cant help but feel led astray by the "head and have rejected many of the beliefs and doctrines most catholic's hold.
I dont want it to seem like I dont like catholics (even though I have fun throwing some jabs) -I just fear the Pope's power and authority over people. It seems to me like there are these two sides to that church -the good side -those with faith in Jesus and the dark side (Luke, I'm your father). There is just so much overt symbolism in many RC churches that goes directly against what God says (the sun symbolism -just look at the Jesuit Logo -its a Sun!, the host –it's a sun, the monstrance, it's a sun!, I could go on and on). I think (and pray) most Catholics are unaware of these things –(although they might not be if they were reading their Bibles -& out of all the Catholics I know –only one-or two (including you)-ok three, including me, read their Bibles.) Basically, after having digested enough of the Bible to make this decision, I (personally) see too much evidence to suggest that God is warning about men with power -& dont trust them, trust God (like Daniel).
As for Pope Leos vision, to be fair, I didnt remember that but had to look it up. The first thing I saw read was that it happened exactly 33 years to the day of the Fatima "miracle. Now, whats up with the "33?-That's a little suspicious to me. I have to reject the Fatima story for two fundamental reasons. 1st (to the best of my knowledge) there has never been an angel that manifested itself as a women –or in the way that lady of Fatima did to those three girls (it doesn't seem to be supported Biblically). And the "miracle had to do with the SUN!-Lucifer!
Pope Leos vision –who knows. How about St. Malachi's vision/ prophecy?
I believe that there have been many true believers in Christ throughout history in the Catholic church -including many popes (perhaps all had good intentions). I also believe that it is likely that there is more faith among the American Catholics than the traditional Protestant denominations (he is at the door knocking). But really, who are we to judge?

Understand

Well with the 33 thing is easy to explain,How old was JESUS when HE was crucified? Answer is 33 so that would be a mark of the Holiness of JESUS anytime 33 shows up! as for the sun symbols that is a very wrong thought,for it's not a sun symbol for if it was it would be a more complete symbol with the points coming off of it but what you actually are looking at is the Halo (sign of Holiness) and those thoughts you were having of sun worship and the such is that of satan, You don't have to follow the Pope if you choose not to! I know many a Catholic that prefers to be known as pre-vatican 2 and they follow the Bible and normal practices just not regarding the Pope.. And also How can Holy be recieved in something not Holy? You wouldn't put anything clean into something dirty,Would you?
Therefore Mary is Holy and recieved JESUS in her womb and kept herself pure untill her assumption into Heaven!

33

I was saved at age 33 -(after spending years searching for answers that the Catholic Church wouldnt nor couldnt provide) -does that make me special? IThat number is on the back of a rolling-rock bottle among other places -is RR holy too? I went to one of my favorite priests (a great person) -he answered my questions by handing me a catechism. why not the Talmuud -or Quran -I've got a great pick of JPII kissing that one! -apparently there is more than one way to god if you are a mystic-gnostic-Catholic. Mystery Babylon in my opinion. Regardless, I encourage you to read pookaloo's article below... Regarding your response to Satan/Lucifer -Most popular occult practices worship Satan as "Lucifer the bringer of light" as god -not "Satan" like the church of Satan does (more secular huminism in my opinion as name Satan)...either way ...Check out Bill Cooper for some great info on "Mystery Babylon" or check this link out as a good place to start:

^ without slanting one

^ without slanting one another, lets not forget what is written in Hebrews 7:25

"Therefore HE (Jesus) is able to save completely those who come to God through Him, because he always lives to intercede for them. Such a high priest meets our need- one who is holy and blameless, pure and set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens. Unlike other priests he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their sins once and for all when he offered himself. For the law appoints as high priests men who are weak; but the oath, that came after the law, appointed the Son, who has been made perfect forever.

from this passage alone, we see that Christ is the only intercessor for us. (1 Timothy 2:5) there is one mediator between God and men.

Praying to Mary or any 'saint' (we are all called to be saints) for intercession is taking Christ out of his role as high priest. Whether you call it veneration or not it is still ignoring Christs power to intercede. And as Mathew James has quoted from Deuteronomy it is an Idol. When you see the statues of Mary or the saints adorned with wreaths and flowers, with money and all kinds of physical offerings before her your alarm bell should sound. Because there is something not right about it. The thing is that even if you say Mary was without sin, you cannot say that the saints where, and yet the Church prays to them and venerate their images as though they were like God. Jesus is worthy of our worship solely. Prayer is a form of worship.

Furthermore if Mary is without sin then she herself could have shed her blood for us, why not her life an offering? The fact is that Christ alone is without sin. Because being without sin is what made him able to fully abolish the sting of death and save us that is what set him apart from sinners. Not Mary, she was not set apart because this was not her place she carried the seed of Christ because of her faith, not her sinlessness. Faith is what saves and faith is what counts. none before Christ and non after Christ are without sin. Faith is what enables us to do the miracles we can, and faith is what God honored in Mary. So as we are given the Holy Spirit from God through Faith, so she received the seed of Christ through faith, not works, not sinlessness.

I am not writing this for my own benefit or for any others but Christs. I do not want to win an argument or even engage in one, I am writing this because this debate is only going to cause a rift. We are here to eagerly await the return of Christ.

Saints

Do you realize that it will be the Saints that will judge the earth? We communicate with the Saints simply because they carry our prayers to GOD the Father also shown even in revelation and the point that Saints judge the earth is also Biblical I will show you...1 Corinthians 6:1-2 and in the kjv 2 Corinthians 8:4
2 Corinthians 9:1 2 Corinthians 9:12 Ephesians 6:18 Jude 1:14 Revelation 8:3-4

here we go again.....

the bible say that ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.... mary was not defiled in that she was a virgin that's why God was able to use her as a vessel because she had never been with a man.... God through His Holy Spirit caused Jesus to form in her womb... also the Bible says, If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. 1 John 1:10
also, praying to saints.. the dead... for their sins.... there is no purgatory!!! once you die it's the judgement.. once you die without Christ there is no escape from Hell for you.. no matter how much some one prays for you... also the maccabees were excluded from God's Holy bible for a reason...God did not want them there... those books were not written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.. that's why they are not in our Bibles!!!
and yes the bible says that saints will judge the world ....but hello!!!! WE are the saints the bible is talking about we are kings and priests and we will rule and reign with Him during the millenium!!! We and every other saint( believer) in Christ!! not just the ones the catholic church deems who are saints!!!

YOU ARE NOW ON
THE CUTTING EDGE

In the past several years, we have seen many anguished Roman Catholics email us, in response to our articles exposing the blatant Black Magick Satanism being propagated by Pope John Paul II and Pope Paul VI. These fine people have agreed with us that the Vatican is now controlled by the dark forces of Satan, but they insist that these Popes are the Anti-Popes of which they had been long warned, and that these two Popes have succeeded in wresting control of the Beloved Historic or Traditional True Roman Catholic Church. This view is becoming more and more common in Catholic circles every single day.

While we appreciate the willingness of these sincere Roman Catholics to recognize that the current Pope is a practicing Black Magick Satanist, we feel specially burdened to educate them about the truth of the historic "Mother Church". Remember, this ministry examines the entire scene of the End Times Kingdom of Antichrist [New World Order] from the vantage point of the occult . Other occultists and Mother Earth worshippers have no difficulty understanding that the Traditional Roman Catholic Church is nothing more, nor less, than the practice of powerful White Magic Satanism. The definition of White Magic Satanism is that practice of the occult which uses the power of the occult for the "good", or "benefit" of mankind. From this standpoint, traditional Roman Catholicism is pure White Magic Satanism.
The Book of Daniel, Chapter 10, reveals something very interesting about spiritual warfare. In this chapter, the Prophet Daniel has asked God for special enlightenment concerning the future of Israel. The angel does not come with an answer for three weeks, 21 full days. When he does come, he tells Daniel that God heard and answered his prayer on the very first day he prayed, and gave the answer to this angel. However, this angel was prohibited from getting to Daniel because he was attacked by a very powerful demon, identified as the Prince of Persia [10:12-13]. The angel then said he "remained there with the kings of Persia".

Finally, as he was unable to defeat this demon by himself, he asked Michael the Archangel, the Guardian Angel of Israel, for assistance. With Michael's intervention, this angel was finally able to get to Daniel. Then, the angel told Daniel, when he returned to the Heavenly sphere, he was going to aid the fight for the Prince of Persia, and later, the Prince of Greece [10:20].

In this chapter, Daniel is speaking about a little-understand aspect of spiritual warfare -- the battle between Satan and God for the mind and heart of key national and spiritual leaders all throughout history. The Bible states that Satan conspired against God before the Foundation of the Earth [Isaiah 14:12-14], when he rebelled against God and took one-third of the angels with him in his rebellion [Revelation 12:4]. Then, in the Garden of Eden, Satan spoke to Eve through the serpent, again conspiring against God's Plan. All throughout human history, Satan has been battling against God's forces for the heart and mind of key human rulers of nations and religions of every era. The powerful demon assigned to the particular human leader of each nation in every era whispers his plan into the mind of the leader, while God's angel assigned to the same ruler works to counter the demonic influence and ensure that God's Plan is accomplished.

While God is Omnipotent, and could win every one of the battles, God elects not to win sometimes. In some instances, in some eras of time, God elects to allow Satan to win the victory. I do not understand the complexities of God's decision-making, having faith that, in the End of the Age, God will win the final battles that will return the rulership of the Earth back to Jesus Christ.

As we discussed in earlier articles, Satan must have one of his most powerful demons working with the key human leaders of the United States, especially since Satan chose this country in the 1740's to be the leader of the nations in establishing the Kingdom of Antichrist, now known as the New World Order.

But, how about the Roman Catholic Church? Does Satan have a specially empowered demon working to move this Church to the side of Satan? You can bet he does. The ultimate aim of Satan is to deliver all mankind to the worship of his Superman, Antichrist. Since the Bible declares that the Antichrist will practice Black Magick Satanism [Daniel 8:23, "Understanding Dark Sentences"; King of Fierce Countenance"; and causing "craft to prosper in his hand"], we should expect that he would want a church so powerful and large as the Roman Catholic Church to turn, at the End of the Age, toward Black Magick Satanism. We have proven that Popes Paul VI and John Paul II are currently Black Magick Satanists, and we shall examine that truth again at the end of this article.

However, the demon assigned to the Church of Rome could not, in the early part of the Church Age, move the Church directly into Black Magick Witchcraft. Rather, he would more likely be successful if he moved the Church of Rome first into White Magic Witchcraft, disguised as Christianity . Then, after a very long period of practicing disguised White Magic Witchcraft, he could then move Roman Catholicism into the same Black Magick brand of Witchcraft as Antichrist will practice.

Now, please keep your minds open long enough for me to prove this concept to you.

If I were the demon assigned to the Church of Rome, what changes would I make in the practice of Catholicism that would move the Church into witchcraft, all the while disguising what I was really doing from the masses of the people?
I would make several changes.

First, I would create a centerpiece of worship that violated Jesus Christ as much as possible, while deceiving the people into thinking that they were honoring Him. I would set up a service that could be repeated daily that would "strike" Jesus again and again, putting Him back on that cross daily. You see, the Apostle Paul clearly told us that the Messiah was to be only struck once, and that the reason Moses got into such trouble with God was that he struck the rock the second time, rather than speaking to it the second time. Jesus was that rock [1 Corinthians 10:4], and so when Moses struck the rock the second time to get water, he not only disobeyed God who told him to speak to the rock, he struck Messiah twice.

All the way through the Book to the Hebrews, the author speaks of the "once and for all" sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Jesus died only once on the cross, and then went to the right hand of the Father. We see that the sacrifice was so excellent and so accepting of the Father, that it need never be repeated again. In fact, we are prohibited from ever repeating it again. The writer to the Hebrews boldly states, "... we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all." [10:10]

Therefore, if I wanted to violate God's mandate the most severely, I would create a ceremony that sacrificed Jesus Christ again and again and again, that could be repeated daily all over the world, all the while deceiving the people into thinking they were glorifying Jesus Christ. Of course, I am speaking of the Mass , which does exactly this. The Mass, according to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, duplicates the sacrifice on the cross. Quoting directly, "The Mass is the same sacrifice as the sacrifice on the cross, because in the Mass the victim is the same, and the principal Priest is the same, Jesus Christ." [My Catholic Faith, p. 286]
Further, I would write the Mass in Latin, the language of the original Pagan Romans, in such way that would derive great witchcraft power. Doc Marquis, the former Black Magick Satanist, says unequivocally that the Mass, when it is said in Latin, contains great occult power! Black Magick witches in the early 6th Century discovered that the Roman Catholic Church had created a powerful White Magic ceremony in the Mass; therefore, they tried to capture this power for themselves by creating the infamous Black Mass, said backwards.

Then, if that were not enough damage done to the finished, once-for-all sacrifice on the cross, I would create a symbol that would keep Jesus on the cross permanently. This symbol could hang on the walls in people's homes and in their offices, and hang in their cars, constantly keeping Jesus Christ on the Cross where I wanted Him to be, not at the Father's Right Hand in Glory.
Now that I have kept Jesus on the Cross, both in the Mass and on the Crucifix, do you have any idea what kind of spiritual victory I have achieved? I have just prevented Salvation from being possible , for anyone who practiced the Mass and revered the Crucifix! This is impossible, you say? Listen to the writer to the Hebrews, speaking under the authority of the Holy Spirit. "If they then deviate from the faith ... it is impossible to bring them back to repentance ... as long as they nail up on the cross the Son of God afresh ... and are holding Him up to contempt and shame and public disgrace." [Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]

Holding Jesus Christ continuously up to contempt and public disgrace is exactly what the Mass and the Crucifix accomplishes. In fact, Catholics are encouraged to contemplate daily the supreme sacrifice Jesus suffered on the Cross.
Next, I would attack the all-perfect sacrifice for sins which Jesus' death accomplished. Even though Jesus' last words on the cross were, "It is finished" [a Greek commercial word, "teleo" which means "Paid in Full"] I would whisper to the Church theologians that Jesus did not fully discharge the sin debt. I would whisper that, while Jesus' sacrifice opened the way for mankind to ultimately reach Heaven, it did not remove the stain of man's sin. Men and women must remove as much of this sin as possible throughout their lives by doing good works, attending Holy Days, participating in the Sacraments, and even causing pain to oneself. Thus, I would make Salvation in the Catholic Church a matter of Faith plus Works , a matter against which the Apostle Paul struggled mightily in the early Christian Church. As Paul said succinctly, "For it is by Grace ye are saved, not by works ..." [Ephesians 2:8]

Now that I have effectively sealed off the entire congregation from Salvation, I would next attack the sufficiency of the Bible itself. I would whisper into the ears of the Catholic theologians and the Pope that the Bible was written by men -- mere men that have the same passions as all men have [James 5:17] -- so that it has to contain error. Knowing the Bible by rote the way I do -- as one of the chief demons of Hell -- I know what an anchor of the soul a belief in the inerrancy of the Bible provides a saint of God. Therefore, I attack it. I further whisper that the Bible is so difficult to understand that the average layperson cannot hope to understand it without "interpretation" by the priest, or official edification from Vatican. Finally, I would forbid anyone to read it on their own, lest they happen to read a verse like, "Saved by Faith, not by Works", or they might read the Book of Hebrews and be able to instantly see what I have done.

After sealing off the True Word of God, it is now time to introduce a false word of God, which I shall call the Traditions of the Church or the Traditions of the Fathers. I remember how very angry Jesus was with the Pharisees and Sadducees because they had created an Extra-Biblical body of writings, which they called the Traditions of the Fathers. These Traditions were presented to the people as an explanation of the Word of God, and as genuinely trustworthy as the True Word God had originally given. Actually, over the centuries, these Traditions were gradually changed so that they led a person away from the True God, effectively sealing off true Salvation.

Further, I am quite aware of the prohibition God has placed on the practice of "Adding to" or "Taking away from" His Holy Bible. I tell you, this Hellish practice drives God into angry fits of rage every time someone "Adds to" or "Takes away" from His Word. But, having made this decision to change God's Word, what kind of verses do I want to add, and what kind of verses do I want to take away? First, I will want to add verses and doctrines that will move the Roman Catholic Church seamlessly and continuously into the practice of White Magic Witchcraft; after all, we want very much to use the powers of the occult for the "good" of the people! This means I will have to decide which Pagan doctrines I want to bring in, dressed up with Christian names, allegories, and good old-fashioned Bible stories, all with my little twist of course. I am very excited about this prospect, as paganism from the past 4,000 years offers such a rich variety of Satanic beliefs and practices from which I can choose; however, I must be careful to bring in only those which can be deftly disguised as "Christian".

One of the first doctrines I will bring in will be praying to dead people and worshipping at an idol made in their supposed likeness. This is one of the oldest, and most effective, means to move people into Satanism, and I can easily disguise it as Christian. I will continuously make the Virgin Mary into a God-like figure that can hear the prayers of untold millions of people worldwide simultaneously, ultimately declaring she was born without original sin and never died, being miraculously assumed into Heaven. Then, I will make all the dead "saints" of the Church God-like in their ability to also hear prayers from all over the world simultaneously.

But, wait, if I am going to bring in old Pagan idol worship into the Church, I need to do something about that First Commandment which clearly and unambiguously forbids making and worshipping idols. How can I take this away and still have 10 Commandments? It will be too obvious to only have 9 Commandments. I know! I will take the 10th Commandment, which is a long one about coveting, and I will break it into two commandments, thus preserving the number 10. I can safely leave the First Commandment in the Catholic Bibles, since no one is going to read it anyway, changing only the Catechism teachings.

I tell you, my plan began to work perfectly, beginning with the introduction of the Mass, where I put Jesus Christ back on Calvary every day this old world is in existence. Further, in the way in which I have written the Mass in the old original Pagan Latin language, great occult power is produced. Those practitioners of Black Magick Witchcraft are going to be really jealous over the great power with which I have imbued this Church. In fact, as we progressed through the 7th Century, Black Magick occultists created the Black Mass to try to capture the occult power of the Catholic Mass for themselves. And, they actually created their own Crucifix. They took the cross, bent it inward at all four corners, and placed an emaciated, totally pathetic figure of Jesus on it, hanging Him so He really looks like a loser. They called this Crucifix the "Twisted Cross", and decided to make it their symbol of their future Antichrist, the Antichrist of Revelation 13.

Which other Pagan doctrines can I now bring into the Roman Catholic Church? I tell you, it is proving to be so easy, I am beside myself with joy. Since establishing the Mass in the powerful Latin language in 600 A.D., I have been given carte blanche authority to bring in truckloads of Pagan doctrine, provided I never blow my Christian cover. Of course, as I go through the centuries, each succeeding generation of people becomes easier and easier to deceive. I have decided to bring in the following doctrines from Paganism, in addition to what I have described already:

1. Give the Pope both Religious and Political Power -- 754 A.D. -- No one will remember that Jesus said, "My Kingdom is not of this world." [John 18:36]. This move will give the Pope the power to overcome any and all opposition to this new, occultic powerful Church. In fact, those Black Magick Satanists are kicking up quite a fuss lately. If I give the Pope the Political power of the kings of Europe, he can force the Inquisition on these Black Magick people, killing them and forcing them underground. If anyone can expose the Catholic Church for the White Magic folk they have become, it is the Black Magick people. Thus, I began the Inquisition some 800 years before that traitor, Martin Luther.
2. Worship of Relics, especially the Cross and of Images -- 788 A.D. -- Since all Pagans love to worship the Creature rather than the Creator [Romans 1:25], I know it will be really simple to bring in this Pagan practice. I will whisper into the minds of the respected Church theologians that people should adore objects that are supposedly parts of the Cross, of dead saints, and of anything the Pope wants to "bless".
3. Fasting on Fridays and observance of Lent -- 988 A.D. -- Lent is a totally Pagan observance, so I can bring it in wholesale. Fasting is a neat thing to bring in, because Jesus taught it under certain circumstances, and because "abstaining from meats is one of those "doctrines that demons teach" [1 Timothy 4:1-3]. Furthermore, since Friday is the 6th day of the week, it has always been a favorite among Satanists. Therefore, I will teach that no one can eat meat on Friday. Perfect !
4. Celibacy of Priests -- 1123 A.D. -- I just could not wait to bring this doctrine in, because it goes so dramatically against the natural constitution of man. That awful Apostle Paul identified celibacy as one of the "doctrines demons teach" [1 Timothy 4:3] and he warned that a person can be tempted to sexually sin if they do not have proper sexual relations with their wives [1 Cor 7:5] But, most importantly, I know that, over the centuries, this unnatural denial of the normal sex drive in priests and nuns will allow my compatriot demon leader from Hell, Larz , to do his work mightily within the Church. You see, Larz is the demon Satan has made responsible for sexual lust, homosexuality, bisexuality, adultery, and other such sexual pleasures [Read NEWS1050, Satan's Seven Divisions of Hell for full details]. Over the many centuries since I persuaded the Pope to declare absolute celibacy, the fires of sexual sin have been able to sweep repeatedly through the ranks of clergy, destroying their lives, and the lives of many young parishioners as well. Celibacy is one of my greatest triumphs!
5. Praying the Rosary -- 1090 A.D. -- Since Jesus forbid praying repetitious prayers, that is exactly the kind of praying I wanted to establish in the Catholic Church. Fortunately, the Satanic Babylonian Mysteries offered the perfect example. They invented and perfected the use of the Rosary, especially devotion to the Babylonian "Sacred Heart" worship. I can also take some of the pattern from ancient India, Tibet, and China [Two Babylons, Hislop, p. 188]. In the Mass and the Crucifix, I have sealed off the way to true Salvation, and now, through the Rosary, I have ensured God will not hear their prayers, even though they speak many words.
6. Sale of Indulgences -- 1190 A.D. -- I whispered into the ear of the Pope that he was the guardian of "the celestial treasury" of the saints who have lived before and whose meritorious works are ready to be dispensed to earnest living Catholics for some Good Works they have done. I told the Pope he held the keys to this Treasury and could dispense the "spiritual wealth" to whomever he chose, for whatever reason he chose. The power this lie gave to the Papacy was enormous. Crusaders were given heavy indulgences to fight the Infidels in the Middle East. Later, the Pope was able to sell indulgences for money, for all sorts of contrivances: Offering for Masses; from candles to statues; heavily-indulgenced societies; and hundreds of other religious items Catholics can purchase in order to receive indulgences. This pagan doctrine has done much to enrich the Church and give the Pope tremendous power over the people.
7. Purgatory Proclaimed -- 1438 A.D. -- Satan loves the doctrine of Purgatory, and has propagated its lie throughout all pagan religions in every era. But, Purgatory is especially delicious for Lord Satan when it is applied to "Christian" doctrine. Purgatory detracts from the fullness of Jesus' sacrifice on the Cross, denying that His sacrifice purchased complete pardon for individual sin. We talked above about the all-perfect sacrifice for sins which Jesus' death on the cross procured for each person who would ever live afterward. To make sure we understood how perfect this sacrifice was, Jesus said, "It is finished", using a Greek word that means "finished", but was also used during that era to mean the "Debt Is Paid In Full "! But Purgatory denies the debt was paid in full, and denies the continuous cleansing His blood gives to all saved people who need continuous cleansing [1 John 1:9, continuously cleansing is in view here].

Purgatory holds that all men must go through a cleansing process to be "pure enough" to enter Heaven, even though God the Father has recognized Jesus' sacrifice as all-sufficient, perfect, unto all eternity [Hebrews 5:9; 9:11; 12:23; 13:20].
But, doctrine aside, Purgatory has always made the coffers overflow of the pagan religion that taught it. Purgatory opens the door wide to all kinds of priestly extortions. Priests as far back as the Satanic Mysteries of Egypt learned that prayers for the dead could not be "effective" unless the priests intervened, and every person knows the priest cannot intervene unless he be specially paid first. In every land, in every era, Pagan priests have used this doctrine of Purgatory to seize great riches for themselves, as they learn to prey upon the tender feelings of loss of loved ones, promising to pray for that departed poor soul, to make his stay in Purgatory shorter.

Thank Lucifer for the fact that we earlier established the notion in their heads that the Bible is not to be trusted, and is too difficult to read on their own! Otherwise, they might realize how false this doctrine is. They might read Jesus' words to the dying thief on the cross, who asked Jesus for forgiveness of sins, recognizing Him as Messiah. They might read Jesus tell the dying thief, "Today, you shalt be with Me in Paradise". Man, do I love Biblical ignorance!

8. Invention of Scapulars, Medals, and Edible Religious Stamps -- 1600 A.D. -- People are so eager to think they can obtain eternal salvation without having to change their hearts and minds through Jesus' Blood. And I can think of no better way to provide false "assurance" of easy salvation than through Scapulars, Medals, and Edible Religious Stamps. I love the scapular. Listen to its "assurances" to the gullible pagan believer.

"Whosoever dies clothed in this Scapular shall not suffer eternal fire." [Mary's promise to St. Simon Stock, July 16, 1251]

"Our Lord taught us to say the Our Father. Mary taught us the value of the Scapular. When we use it as a prayer, Our Lady draws us to the Sacred Heart of Her Divine Son. It is well, therefore, to hold the scapular in the hand while addressing Our Lady." [The Blue Army of Our Lady of Fatima, Washington, NJ 07882, ImprimaturL +Thomas M. O'Leary, D.D. Bishop of Springfield]

How I have loved the Sacred Heart lie! It has worked so well since I invented it in Babylon so many years ago.

9. Infallibility of the Pope -- 1870 A.D. -- I am especially proud of this invention. As a demon in the service of Lord Satan, I am wholly dedicated to the eventual appearance of our Spiritual Superman, Antichrist. He will be assisted mightily by the False Religious Prophet, whom we know will be the Roman Catholic Pope [Read NEWS1052]. Therefore, to prepare for this wonderful occasion, when the Religious Prophet will exercise global dictatorial control [Rev 13:16-18], what better plan can we execute than to make him an Absolute Spiritual Dictator within his own Church .in the latter part of the 19th Century?

Once again, I am so glad I discouraged Catholics from reading the Bibles on their own. Otherwise, they may read of the time when the Apostle Paul challenged Peter, telling him he was doing wrong! [Galatians 2:11-21] It would not do to see our supposedly First Pope -- Peter -- being withstood to his face by Paul, and admitting that he had been wrong in his treatment of the Gentile Christians.

HUMAN SACRIFICE

As you can tell, by the 1200's, I had the Roman Catholic Church practicing powerful White Magic Witchcraft. The invention of the Mass said in Latin was the key, as it produced tremendous spiritual power. But, I was lacking a human sacrifice, and Lord Satan was not happy about it. You see, all witchcraft requires sacrifice, and Satan wants it to be human. Even White Magic people who sacrifice animals, or who do not sacrifice anything, are not aware that someone, somewhere, is sacrificing on their behalf. Where in the world could I get a human sacrifice system operating in the Roman Catholic Church and still maintain my fig leaf cover as a Christian Church?

Ah, I have the answer: I can invoke the magical properties of a priest performing a "Mystery "! All pagan priests in every era have wowed their adherents with the idea that he can perform a "Mystery" that no one else can even conceive, let alone do. Let me see how I can work this out. I will need a body, preferably that of Jesus Christ, and I will need blood, again preferably from Jesus Christ.

I have it! I will propagate the lie that, at the time of Communion, the wafer becomes the body of Jesus Christ, and the wine actually becomes His blood. [Transubstantiation] Then, there is no difference between the "Mystery" ceremony the Catholic priest mystically performs, and the real sacrificial ceremony a Satanic priest really performs. In the supernatural realm, there will be no difference, and I will have my human sacrifice! Once again, I can keep sacrificing that hated Jesus Christ again and again, and again, endlessly! How wonderful this concept truly is! The people will think they are doing great honor to Jesus, when they are really sacrificing Him at Satan's altar.

Finally, since all true pagans eat the flesh of their sacrificial human victim and drink the blood, after the sacrifice is over, I will have the Catholics eat the wafer and drink the wine after the priest is finished with the symbolic sacrifice. Perfect!

THE PURE HEART-AND-SOUL OF WITCHCRAFT

THE essence -- the heart and soul of Witchcraft -- is the absolute control that a Witch or a Wizard exercises over a reluctant and even resistant Deity. The Witch or Wizard is assured that, once they perform a ritual precisely as it is written, they can force any demon or demons down from their supernatural realm into this realm. Once in this realm the Witch or Wizard can force them to do whatever they want him to do, even if he is resistant to these commands.

This power over Deity is THE most important allure of Witchcraft; it is the #1 reason human beings want to become Witches or Wizards. In Roman Catholicism Witchcraft, the priest is the Wizard, and his primary ritual is the Mass. Remember, there are many different Masses for different things the witch wants the demon to accomplish. I have listed, below, the various types of Masses:

1. Sunday Morning Mass
2. Funeral Mass
3. Purgatory Mass
4. To honor the Saints in Heaven and to obtain their mediation for:
a. Spiritual favors
b. Temporal favors
c. Health
d. Wealth
e. A Happy Trip
f. Protection against rain
g. Protection against hail
h. Protection against insects

5. Masses to be said at shrines or at historical churches
6. For Good School Exam Results

("I Am A Priest", by Lucien Vinet, Protestant Information Bureau, Englewood, Colorado, 1949.)

Witchcraft has rituals for all these types of wonderful blessings, just like Catholicism.

To prove that I have established Roman Catholicism as White Magic Witchcraft, I will quote a respected Catholic theologian, Father John A. O'Brien of Notre Dame University, in his book, Faith For Millions. Listen:

"The supreme power of the priestly office is the power of consecrating. 'No act is greater', says Saint Thomas, 'than the consecration of the body of Christ'. In this essential phase of the sacred ministry, the power of the priest is not surpassed by that of the bishop, the archbishop, the cardinal or the pope. Indeed, it is equal to that of Jesus Christ. For in this role the priest speaks with the voice and authority of God Himself."

"When the priest pronounces the tremdous words of consecration, he reaches up into the heavens, brings Christ down from his throne, and places Him upon our altar to be offered up again as the victim of for the sins of man. It is a power greater than that of monarchs and emperors; it is greater than that of saints and angels, greater than that of Seraphim and Cherubim. Indeed, it is greater than the power of the Virgin Mary: For, while the Blessed Virgin was the human agency by which Christ became incarnate, a single time, the priest brings Christ down from Heaven, and renders Him present on our altar as the eternal Victim for the sins of man -- not once but a thousand times! The priest speaks and lo! Christ, the eternal and omnipotent God, bows His head in humble obedience to the priest's commands."

Let me repeat that last, and most important, sentence:

"The priest speaks and lo! Christ, the eternal and omnipotent God, bows His head in humble obedience to the priest's commands."

This is the heart and soul of Witchcraft, and I have deftly incorporated it into the White Magic Witchcraft of the Roman Catholic Church. It is no wonder Satan assigned me this most important task, as this position as demonic overlord to the Catholic Church takes great skill and wisdom.

This is Perfect!

PRACTICAL FRUITS

Suddenly, out of nowhere, mortal enemies appear! In the 6th Century, A.D., Black Magick Satanists realize what I am attempting to do, and they realize the great power I have given the Roman Catholic Church with the Latin Mass. In an effort to capture this power, they create the Black Mass and the Twisted Cross Crucifix. But, that is not what I am worried about. I worry that, as fellow occultists, they can alert the people as to what I am doing to the Catholic Church and blow the whistle on me. Then, my efforts would be in vain, and I would be prevented from bringing the Catholic Church all the way into White Magic Witchcraft.

Therefore, I will instigate an Inquisition against the Black Magick Satanists -- also known as followers of the Hermetic Tradition. Pagans treat their mortal enemies in exactly this way. Whereas Jesus told His followers they could not call fire down from Heaven to punish those who would not repent and would not listen to the Gospel [Luke 9:54], pagans vigorously pursue their enemies with malice and hatred. As soon as I realized Black Magick Satanists could let it be known what the Church of Rome had become, I whispered into the mind of the Pope that he needed to pursue, torture, and kill any of this enemy he could find. The Inquisition had thus begun, and it was marvelously successful. I ensured that Rome's Magic was the dominant Magic in the land.

Then, in 1515 A.D., the most heinous of all events occurred. Catholic priest, Martin Luther, suddenly had his spiritual eye opened by the Spirit of God, and saw that men are saved by Faith alone, not by any Works he might do, or works that the Church might ascribe to him. The Spirit of God was mighty and Protestantism flourished, to a startling degree in many countries. Some nations in Europe, especially France, seemed in danger of losing their Catholic majority.
Luckily, the machinery of the Inquisition was in place and was effective. I whispered into the Pope's mind that he should unleash the Inquisition against these upstart Protestant Christians. The Pope did my bidding, and began a 300-year reign of terror and bloodshed that resulted in the death of over 8 million Protestants. To this day, the graves of these 8 million Protestants stand as a wonderful testimony to the raw power of Hell that can be unleashed against anyone who dares cross a Satanist or his Church.

SYMBOLS THAT PROVE I REALLY DID ESTABLISH WHITE MAGIC WITCHCRAFT IN THE TRADITIONAL ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH

Symbols are exceedingly important to the practice of any kind of Satanism. "The true magic symbol is an image which hides an inner meaning. This meaning is usually cunningly hidden behind a form which most people think they can understand ..." [Magic Symbols , Occult Book, p. 6] We demons absolutely love symbols in all types of witchcraft. Of course, Black Magick and White Magic witches use many of the same symbols. To imprint my fingerprints on this transfer of the Roman Catholic Church from a true Christian Church to one practicing White Magic Witchcraft, I whispered in the Pope's ear in the early 7th Century that he could import occultic symbols, "Christianize" them by saying a prayer over them and then use them in Catholic practice. This is one of my favorite tricks, and it is made easier when people like the Popes, Cardinals, Bishops, and priests are woefully ignorant of the Bible. In the Old Testament, God would never allow the Israelites to use pagan symbols under any pretense, ordering they be destroyed in every instance, and never allowed them to "cleanse" any pagan symbol or object by any means whatsoever.

God Himself has defined Paganism as "worshipping the Creature rather than the Creator [Romans 1:25], and He is right on the money. We demons are constantly trying to get men to worship something other than the One True God. We have been successful in getting man to worship Nature, Animals, Trees, Bees, Birds, Reptiles, the Sun, the Stars, and just about everything God has ever made. But, the easiest thing to get man to worship is sex . This is why we have created the 8-Fold Path to Enlightenment, with the circle in the middle. This circle represents the female vulva in our spiritual teaching.
The obelisk was created by the demon Prince of Egypt, one of the most powerful demons in Hell. He whispered in the mind of the Egyptian leaders that the Spirit of their Sun God, Ra, resided within the obelisk. The Egyptians were told to "face the obelisk" at least once per day, and thrice if possible. The obelisk is the perfect symbol of the Male phallus.
Thus, the obelisk was the Male phallus, while the circle represented the Female vulva. Whenever we wanted to represent the Great Sex Act, we merely inserted the phallus of the obelisk into the vulva of the circle. It was slick and it was easy.

Once I persuaded the Popes to "Christianize" obelisks, the Roman Catholic Church went whole-hog crazy over obelisks. They began to virtually strip Egypt of its plentiful supply, shipping them to Rome, and erecting them everywhere. I persuaded the Pope to buy the most famous Egyptian obelisk of all time, Cleopatra's Needle. When he had brought it into Rome, I then persuaded him to design it so it would sit right in the middle of the 8-Fold Path of Enlightenment, right in St. Peter's Basilica. In this way, the Pope is in perfect position to "face the obelisk" daily, as many times as we want him to.

When we persuaded the Pope in the 7th Century to recreate the Great Sex Act in St. Peter's Basilica, I had not yet moved the Catholic Church into forcing the priests into Celibacy. That innovation would not occur until 1123 A.D., nearly 500 years later. But, in the 7th Century, I knew I was going to bring Celibacy into the Catholic Church, and I laughed heartily every time I thought that the time would soon come when the world's most powerful promoter of Celibacy would have the symbol of the Great Sex Act right in front of their Pope every time he came out to speak to the faithful in the square.

TIME FOR BLACK MAGICK WITCHCRAFT

From the beginning, I had orders from Lord Satan to ultimately move the Roman Catholic Church into Black Magick Satanism, since that is going to be the religion of Antichrist [Daniel 7:23-25] and of the False Prophet [Revelation 13:12]. We knew that, if I was successful in establishing Black Magick within the Catholic Church, the Pope would be the logical choice for False Prophet. The plan was set and the pathway sure. Only the timing was uncertain, since that was not in our hands.

Finally, in the late 1950's, I received my orders from Rege, the General of the Occult. "Choose your Black Magick Pope now". I chose the man who was to become Pope Paul VI. He was wise and proficient in the ways of the Craft and he would listen carefully to our instructions. He was elected Pope in 1962.
As soon as he arose, I wanted to flash a signal to the entire world of occultists that the change in the Roman Catholic Church for whom they had been long awaiting had finally occurred. Therefore, I whispered into the mind of Paul VI that he should immediately show forth the Twisted Cross that Satanists in the 6th Century had created. He immediately thought this was an excellent idea, so he began to use the Satanic Crucifix, this ultimate symbol of Antichrist. In 1978, the new Pope, who had taken the name, John Paul II, also began using this Crucifix.

How delicious it is to me, and to Lord Satan, that every time the Catholic faithful assemble to hear the Pope speak, they bow down to THE symbol of Antichrist, without even knowing it. We are constantly amazed how easy it is to deceive human beings, as they are so desperately sinful they want to be deceived. Moving the Roman Catholic Church, first into practicing powerful White Magic Witchcraft and then into practicing Black Magick, has not been too difficult, and it has been a whole lot of fun.

Truly, Black Magick practitioner, Karl Marx, was so right on when he created these words, as they so accurately portray the attitudes of all the demonic host toward pathetic human beings.

"Yet I have power within my youthful arms
To clench and crush you [humanity] with Tempestuous force,
While for us both the abyss yawns in darkness.
You will sink down and I shall follow laughing,
Whispering in your ears, 'Descend, come with me, friend."

Now, at long last, the time is near for the appearance of our Superman, Antichrist. Soon, he will ride out of Heaven on his white horse, and appear East of Jerusalem according to the Plan. I have accomplished my mission of positioning the Roman Catholic Church to assume the leadership of the global church of Antichrist. It has been fun, and it has been rewarding. Soon, the ultimate victory of Lord Satan over that other Lord, Jesus Christ, will occur at Armageddon. Then, my Lord shall climb up to Heaven itself to depose God and rule forever. This is the ultimate Plan, and I will be a large part of it.

SUMMARY

This has been an account of a fictional report from the powerful demon assigned to the Roman Catholic Church for centuries, as he moved the Church steadily, first into the powerful practice of White Magic Witchcraft, and now into the Black Magick Witchcraft of the Antichrist. All the evidences are there, from pagan doctrine to the symbols we have shown you, above. Satanists and Mother Earth practitioners, have no difficulty at all in seeing the Roman Catholic Church for the pagan institution she is, and they respect and fear her pagan power. I realized this, with steadily increasing horror, as I studied the occult. What I have shared with you is true, and is accurately based upon occult knowledge.

We hope and pray that you will read this account with an open heart and mind, for your precious eternal soul is at stake. We pray that you will now obey the words of our Savior, "Come out from her ... so you may not participate in her plagues." [Revelation 18:4]

Now that the Roman Catholic Church has moved into the practice of Black Magick Witchcraft, we can know positively that the appearance of Antichrist is very soon.

Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.

If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.

We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.

Finally, we would love to hear from you.

You can contact us by mail or email.

God bless you

we are all called saints,

we are all called saints, all those in Christ are saints, not those appointed by an earthly council of men only... 1 Corinthians 6:1-2 does good to show that we are all saints, not just an elect number. Paul asks them (the Church in Corinth) "If you are to judge the world, aren't you not competent to judge trivial cases?" 2 Corinthians 8:4 again shows us that when referring to saints it is referring to those in the church who are in Christ, i.e Christians...again we are all saints. As for 2 Corinthians 9:1 it too shows that when speaking of the churches Paul refers to them as the saints, again, we are all saints. Ephesians does not tell us to pray to the saints but for them, the saints once again, being all who believe and are in Christ. Jude again refers to "thousands and thousands of his holy ones" that is us, the saints who are called by Christ, I do not doubt the saints will take part in the judgement. But you should know that we are the saints, not those picked by the Roman Catholic Church, who are they but men? how can they pick the Lords Holy Ones? We are saints, and we should pray for each other, as you pointed out in Ephesians. We do not pray to them, we have Christ to intercede for us

bashing

Here is another interesting fact: Why do you all like bashing the Catholic Church? Do you not realize that openly bashing the Church is not the image that JESUS asks you all to portray? Where is the love??
and also remember JESUS said "Judge not lest ye be Judged. You all don't realize that the persecution JESUS spoke of was mainly CHRISTians against CHRISTians so why the hate towards us Catholics?
Let he who is without sin cast the first stone
