ROMEAGEDDONISM: The Joining of Catholicism, Islam, Mormonism, Buddhism and Hinduism

 

The Pagan Trinity of Sorts in Rome Italy is OFFICIALLY Complete!

(Note: Steve Quayle coined the term “ROMEAGEDDONISM” this morning in an email to me)

The Vatican, The Mosque of Rome, and now there is a Mormon Temple!!

These Three have officially met and seem to be melding like peas growing in a pod! That is why I call it a Pagan Trinity. If the false prophet meets and makes a deal with the other major religions, then this will needed to be revised.

Rome will probably be the headquarters of the One World Religion until the Anti-Christ goes to Jerusalem and declares himself to be god!!

While researching I also found this:

There is also a Buddhist Temple in Rome, the largest in Europe, and a Hindu Temple as well! I am sure there is a major Wiccan Coven, as all these religions are based on Paganism and Witchcraft!

So that is ALL the major religions with representation in Rome Italy! How many more leaders of False Religions has the False Prophet met with behind closed doors and in secret? He met with all of the devils of the major mega-churches from America some time back! Also see:  Together 2016 :Luciferian One World Religion Gathering

In MY OPINION, the Seat of Satan has moved from Pergamos, and is now in Rome!!

Make NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT, the Principalities, Powers, Rulers of Darkness and Spiritual Wickedness in High places are now united to declare the One World Religion and to usher in the Anti-Christ!!

Luke 21:28 “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”

Thomas D. Williams | Breitbart News – Pope Francis met with the leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Vatican Saturday, the first meeting ever between the heads of the Catholic and Mormon churches.

The occasion for the meeting was the dedication of a massive new Mormon temple in Rome, the first in the Eternal City, which will take place on Sunday.

On Saturday morning, Pope Francis granted an audience to the president of the Latter-Day Saints, Russell Nelson, along with the 14 elders who make up the church’s top leadership, comprising the First Counselor, Second Counselor, and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.

The newly finished 156-foot high edifice — officially called “Temple of Rome” —  was opened to the public for just over two weeks, with guided tours offered from January 28 through February 16. Once the temple is formally dedicated Sunday, entry will be “reserved for faithful members of the Church,” the group’s website states.

The Mormon Church boasts some 5,000 members in Rome, with a total of 23,000 throughout the Italian peninsula. The Temple of Rome, under construction for nearly ten years, is the first temple of the Latter-Day Saints to be built in Italy, which may well explain the presence of the entire Mormon leadership for its inauguration Sunday — the first time the entire leadership of the church has ever gathered outside the United States.

The Temple of Rome is the 162nd operating temple of the LDS church worldwide and the 12th in Europe. The three-story edifice, encompassing almost 4,000 square meters, is part of a religious and cultural center spread over 15 acres, which includes a multi-purpose building, a visitor center, a family history library, and a guest house.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was officially established in 1830 by Joseph Smith. (Note links about the Mormons, Smith and images are mine, NOT the author of this article)

According to David A. Bednar, who presides over the Church’s Temple and Family History Department, the Mormons “have more than sixteen million members, and the Church is recognized and is present in over 170 nations.”

Three Prominent False Temples to Pagan gods now in the Seat of Satan, Rome!

So now we have a complete Pagan Trinity that has united as part of the One World Religion with the Pope leading the way.

Recently the false prophet met with the grand imam of al-Azhar in the United Arab Emirates.

The foundation for a New Religion – Catholislam!

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis says his pilgrimage this week to the United Arab Emirates wrote a “new page in history of the dialogue between Christianity and Islam” and in promoting world peace based on brotherhood. Source

Vatican Officially Releases Catholislam Logo For Pope Francis Upcoming ‘Servant Of Hope’ Tour To The Muslim Nation OF Morocco

NTEB – The official logo of the Pope’s visit was chosen from about 50 entries in a competition. An explanatory note accompanying the logo’s release says that a cross and a crescent in the logo are symbols of Christianity and Islam which highlight the interreligious relations between Christians and Muslims. In fact, during the 2-day trip, Pope Francis will meet the leader of Moroccan Muslims, 800 years after the meeting between St. Francis of Assisi and Sultan Al-Malik al-Kāmil of Egypt.  Source


Pope Francis Held Unprecedented Closed-Door End Times Meeting With Head Of The Mormon Church, Prophet President Russell M. NelsonNTEB – A visit between a pope and the man considered a prophet by millions of Latter-day Saints would have been unimaginable to leaders and members in both churches 50 years ago. Clandestine olive branches and decades of détente were necessary, according to sources from both faiths interviewed for this story. That is exactly what has happened. In fact, today’s meeting is a culmination of a web of deepening and expanding alliances between the Latter-day Saints and the Roman Catholic Church and its many sister organizations.

During his reign as both king of Vatican City and as the pope of the Catholic Church, Jorge Mario Bergoglio has been widening his tent and making preparations for the coming One World Religion of Antichrist. From seducing gullible pawns like Rick Warren who gushingly calls him ‘our pope’,  all the way up to signing a ‘Universal Peace Document‘ with a high-ranking leader of Islam, Pope Francis is a man on an end times mission.

“For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:3,4 (KJV)

Now a secret, closed-door meeting with the head ‘prophet’ of the Mormon Church, Russell Nelson, reveals the expansion of another end times partnership as the Vatican adds more pieces to their end times chessboard. The Roman harlot is on the move and trading in the souls in men.

Pope Francis meets with Mormon President Nelson in the Vatican

FROM THE DESERET NEWS: “The differences in doctrine are real and they’re important,” President Nelson said afterward as he stood just outside St. Peter’s Square, “but they’re not nearly as important as the things we have in common — our concern for human suffering, the importance of religious liberty for all of society, and the importance of building bridges of friendship instead of building walls of segregation.”

The two world religious leaders shared a belief that faith in God brings morality and stability to society. “If we have a godless society, we have a rudderless ship,” President Nelson said.

The pope extended the invitation for a private audience to the Latter-day Saint leader in conjunction with President Nelson’s trip this weekend to Italy, where he will dedicate the history-making new Rome Italy Temple.

The two men met for 30-35 minutes and also discussed their mutual concern for the youth in their churches, their concern about secularization and the desire for people to worship God, President Nelson said.

President M. Russell Ballard, president of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, joined President Nelson in the meeting, along with Elder Massimo De Feo, a General Authority Seventy, and Elder Alessandro Dini Ciacci, an Area Seventy. President Nelson’s executive secretary, Mark Woodruff, also attended.

The pope presented President Nelson with two gifts, his declarations on the family and on the Islamic faith. President Nelson gave the pope a Lladro figurine of the Christus statue and a copy of “The Family: A Proclamation to the World.”

After the meeting, the Latter-day Saint leaders smiled as they walked arm in arm down Via della Conciliazione — the Road of the Conciliation — to address a large media contingent with the iconic St. Peter’s Basilica in the background.

The most senior Latter-day Saint leader to meet with a pope before today was President Henry B. Eyring, who was greeted by Pope Francis in November 2014 when both spoke at an international marriage summit at the Vatican. President Eyring then was the first counselor in the First Presidency.

A visit between a pope and the man considered a prophet by millions of Latter-day Saints would have been unimaginable to leaders and members in both churches 50 years ago. Clandestine olive branches and decades of détente were necessary, according to sources from both faiths interviewed for this story. That is exactly what has happened. In fact, today’s meeting is a culmination of a web of deepening and expanding alliances between the Latter-day Saints and the Roman Catholic Church and its many sister organizations.

That growing relationship has intensified during the past decade, resulting in collaborations that now have the two churches working side-by-side all over the world on projects vast and tiny.

The Deseret News conducted more than 20 interviews with people from both faiths around the world, from Bosnia to Rome and from Salt Lake City to Norway, to provide a definitive look at how the churches’ combined efforts are not only helping to resolve differences between their own members but delivering emergency humanitarian aid to some of the world’s most vulnerable people — including many at the U.S.-Mexico border — as well as working to defend religious liberty and to bolster families.

“We explained to His Holiness that we work side by side, that we have projects with Catholic Relief Services all over the world, in over 43 countries,” President Ballard said. “We’ve been shoulder-to-shoulder as partners, and try to relieve suffering, trying to help people that are struggling. He was very interested in that and was very cordial , very kind to us.”

Rome and Salt Lake City

On Thursday, Catholics and Latter-day Saints indeed worked side-by-side to help the homeless and refugees in their respective headquarters, Rome and Salt Lake City.

That appeared impossible in the 1950s when, fearing their own congregations would be scandalized if church members knew they were meeting, the leader of the Latter-day Saints came to Salt Lake City’s Holy Cross Hospital for conversations with the head of the Salt Lake City Catholic diocese.

For years, the truth has been unraveling.  The Catholic Church has always been rooted in Pagan Worship.  Take a look at  the following:

6 SURPRISING FACTS ABOUT THE PANTHEON IN ROME

By Walks of Italy  

The Pantheon is actually a Christian church—and has been for centuries

Sanctae Mariae Rotundae
Sanctae Mariae Rotundae

Walk into the Pantheon today, and all of the information signs say “Basilica di Santa Maria ad Martyres,” or “Basilica of St. Mary and the Martyrs.” Huh? Isn’t this a pagan temple? Well, it was once. (More on that in a moment!). But in 609 A.D., it was turned into a church.It’s still a church today, and, yes, you can go to Mass here on Sundays!

The Pantheon is the best-preserved ancient Roman building in Rome

A nativity scene in the Pantheon—er, in the Basilica of St. Mary and the Martyrs!

Largely because the Pantheon was turned into a church, it was kept remarkably well-preserved. In fact, you can still experience the building much as the ancient Romans would have. Sure, some things have changed (there’s a Christian altar here now, for example, and frescoes of saints), but the dimensions of the building, along with much of its decoration, has remained the same.

…strange inscription above the porch, “M·AGRIPPA·L·F·COS·TERTIVM·FECIT,” which stands for, in English, “Marcus Agrippa, son of Lucius, consul for the third time, built this.” Agrippa was around in the 1st century B.C…. so how is that possible? It’s possible because Agrippa didn’t build the third version—he built the first. The inscription was added as a nice little nod to him, as the original founder.

Was the Christian Vatican Originally a Temple to Lord Shiva?

NO!  Jesus is not Krishna!  The Roman Catholic Church is and always has been ROMAN.  The Vatican worships Pagan Gods!   It is very interesting the similarity between these two locations.

If you want to really have your eyes opened.  If you are like me, you will find it shocking and revealing.  Definitely explains a lot of things.  Visit the following site.

GODDESS IN THE VATICAN?

THE CITADELS OF CHRISTIAN CULTURE OFTEN HAVE SURPRISING ORIGINS

Here are some excerpts:

The Holy See

The word itself varies in its interpretations. Most believe it is derived from the Latin vates, meaning seer or soothsayer. In turn the word ‘Vaticanus’ was from the Etruscan language, meaning serpent or dragon. An even older word vatica is Hindi for a cultural or religious center. It is often used for Hindu monasteries. The Hindi suffix tika is the name of the red circle or dot that Hindu women place in the center of their forehead. It indicates a “third eye” or an ability to see beyond the three dimensions. How the word was brought from India to pre-Roman Italy is unknown. Vatis can also mean snake in the Etruscan language, and it was claimed by Pliny the Roman historian that snakes grew so large in the Vatican area that one ate a child. The serpent/dragon was given an unusual power of sight as well.

In Sun Cults versus Thunder Cults the author declares the Vatican was a sacred grove of the seer-serpent long before Roman peoples moved to the area. Pliny’s version may have been a misunderstanding of both the word and the pagan practices that would take place underground. The historian Varro claimed the word ‘Vatican’ was from a Roman deity Vagitanus who endowed children with the power of speech. In any case the word has something to do with prophecy and special sight. Today the Vatican is also referred to as the Holy See.

Centuries before the birth of Jesus the worship of Cybele had as a central theme of the son and mother. Unlike Christianity the mother was the dominant one and Cybele’s son was also her lover. And again unlike Christianity, the orgiastic rites of the goddess included self-flagellation and even self-castration. They also involved initiations where those admitted to the secret worship would be drenched in blood. A highlight of worship was the Taurobolium, baptism in the blood of a sacred bull.

The priests were not Romans but were from Asia Minor where the Cybele stone originated. Romans despised the effeminate behavior of the long-haired, strangely costumed priests parading in their streets, although their own religion had much in common.

The worship of Roman men, particularly in the military, had their own son-lover pair of Mithra and Atagartis. The rites shared the bloody initiation, but the male Mithra was a warrior god who slew a bull at birth. Like the worship of Cybele, a highlight of worship also included the Taurobolium, baptism in the blood of a sacred bull. Such Roman sites still exist, generally beneath churches.

While Christianity revered the concept of Mother and Son, the practices of the newer religion were very different.

The practices of the mother-goddess religion were soon forced underground—literally underground, as they would conduct their ecstatic ceremonies in the catacombs under the Vatican. The layers of catacombs that supported the structure above were used to conduct human sacrifice rituals and initiations. It wasn’t until Domitian AD 81–96 made human sacrifice a capital crime, that these tunnels were closed. Secret tunnels, however, allowed the forbidden ceremonies of Cybele, including child sacrifice, to continue. In the second century the tunnels were closed and Roman families that still engaged in such practices were banished to Libya.

One family that was forced to abandon Rome for Libya was that of Gaius Fulvius Victor. His father fled Rome when the Gnostic Antonius Pius sought to execute any nobles belonging to the Cybele sect. Through political in-fighting Victor somehow became Pope and while he is guilty of numerous crimes, including murder, his worst offense was in re-instituting child sacrifice to the Vatican. It had been practiced on certain occasions, but Victor wanted a sacrifice at every Mass.

The temple of Cybele stood on the Vatican until the Christians took over in the fourth century. Then the site evolved into the Basilica of St. Peter, which stands today. While the Catholic place would impose its own brand of mother and son images, the Vatican’s massive collection of pre-Christian goddesses populates the city. Statues and images of Artemis, Fortuna, Venus, Diana, and the Egyptian Sekmet are present, as is a huge obelisk.

The obelisk in the center of the Vatican represents the center point of the Axis Mundi of the Catholic faith. It is surrounded by 16 windrose markers, a directional system created by the Etruscan people long before Rome. Author Cort Lindahl in Axis Mundi points out that the markers refer to key places in the Christian faith, including: the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, to Axum in Ethiopia (which Graham Hancock believes holds the Ark of the Covenant) and to the Schloss Schonbrunn Palace of the Habsburgs.

Worship of the goddess Cybele survived long after Rome. In The Cult of the Black Virgin, author Ian Begg says the Frankish Merovinginians worshiped her as Diana, and there were huge idols and monuments to her in France. He connects the modern survival of her to Mary Magdalene. Lyons in France was a center of her worship, and she survived in Paris (as Isis) until St. Genevieve took over her role. (Click to Source)

Isaiah 57 revisited: America’s progressive pagan elites, their depraved followers, and human sacrifice

By Linda Kimball

February 26, 2019
America, the freest, most enlightened society in the history of the world, was founded on Biblical presuppositions beginning with, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” (Gen. 1:1) “…in His own image He made them, male and female He made them…I give you dominion over the earth and its creatures…” (Gen. 1:27) “I am the Lord your God…” (Isaiah 41:13) Our Constitutional rights, beginning with the most important one, the God-given right to life, flow from this Biblical seedbed, thus because human beings are the spiritual image bearers of the Lord, throughout Christianized Western civilization there exist strict prohibitions against murder and human sacrifice.

The pagan world however, has never shared Western sensibilities. Throughout history in many parts of the world, pagans have performed unimaginably sadistic human sacrifices as a way of pleasing or appeasing their mythological gods.

For example, in 1921 the largest cemetery of sacrificed infants in the ancient Near East was discovered at Carthage. Hundreds of burial urns filled with the cremated bones of infants, mostly newborns but even some children up to six years of age were uncovered at Carthage. All of the victims had been burned to death.

The actual rite of child sacrifice at Carthage has been graphically described by Diodorus Siculus:

“There was in their city a bronze image of Cronus extending its hands, palms up and sloping toward the ground, so that each of the children when placed thereon rolled down and fell into a sort of gaping pit filled with fire.” (Abortion and the Ancient Practice of Child Sacrifice, Andrew White, MD, 1/5/2012, Associates for Biblical Research)

Plutarch, a first and second century A.D. Greek author, adds to the description:

“…the whole area before the statue was filled with a loud noise of flutes and drums so that the cries of wailing should not reach the ears of the people.” ibid

Except in method, the Mayans were no different in this regard. Inscribed stones bear witness to the Mayan practice of human sacrifice – adult male, female and child:

“The common method for human sacrifice seems to have been for the “ah nacom” (a functionary) to extract the heart quickly, while 4 people associated with Chac, the rain/lightning god, held the struggling victim’s limbs. Human sacrifices seem to have been made, as well, with arrows, by flaying, decapitation, hurling from a precipice, and throwing the victim into a limestone sinkhole.” (Human Sacrifice and the Maya, N.S. Gill, ancienthistory.about.com)

As evil as this was, the Maya were amateurs in comparison to Aztecs when it came to human sacrifice on a massive scale:

” The Aztecs of Central. Mexico, many years later, once sacrificed twenty thousand people in a single ceremony to commemorate the dedication of a new temple. Then they ate them.” (Maya Human Sacrifice…Say it isn’t so, ambergriscaye.com)

The kind of human sacrifice practiced by the Aztecs involved the use of large boulders against which the victims would be placed:

” The victims would be forced to lean back against the stone, causing their chests to protrude to make it easier for the pagan priests to slice open their chests, reach in, yank out a still beating heart and eat it. The hair of the priests were matted with blood, and the walls of temples themselves were soaked inside and out with human blood, as if they had been streaked and splattered with red paint. ” (Planned Parenthood and the Aztecs, Bryan Fischer, OneNewsNow, Thursday, August 20, 2015)

Isaiah 57: Religious and Social Elites, Their Depraved Followers, and Human Sacrifice

In his highly acclaimed book, “Nazi Oaks,” Pastor R. Mark Musser turns to Isaiah 57 where the prophet records the rejection of the Holy Creator God by Jewish religious and social leaders and their depraved followers in favor of the mythological Canaanite evolutionary nature religion. The subsequent loss of spiritual leadership results in deification of man, occultism, and sadistically evil human sacrificial rituals where children are burned to death as offerings to Ba’al, a Canaanite god (1):

“They have built high places to Baal on which to burn their children in the fire as offerings to Baal – something I never commanded or mentioned, nor did it ever enter My mind.” Jeremiah 19:5

These sadistic evils together with other forms of depravity led to the suicidal demise of the nation where the righteous man perishes,

“…. and no man takes it to heart; and the devout men are taken away, while no one understands. For the righteous man is taken away from evil.” (Isaiah 57: 1)

While children were burned to death and good, faithful people were rejected, scorned, ridiculed, persecuted, imprisoned, impoverished, terrorized, murdered and otherwise die and taken away to paradise, on earth no one replaces them. Left behind were the depraved counter culture rebels of society – evolutionary pagan religious and social elites and their depraved, destructive followers:

“Against whom do you jest? Against whom do you open wide your mouth and stick out your tongue? Are you not children of rebellion, offspring of deceit, who inflame among yourselves among the oaks, under every luxuriant tree, who slaughter the children in ravines, under the clefts of the crags?” (Isaiah 57: 4-5)

Here is seen defiant rejection of the Holy Creator God, creational norms, Truth and Moral Law resulting in unfettered evil, worship of divine evolving forces of nature, shameless sexual perversion, sadism, and child sacrifice practiced by depraved mass man and the cultivated crowd, the elites of society, and all of it “rolled up into one outdoor whore house of death.” (Musser, p. 49)

Isaiah 57: 4-5 Slaughter of Babies

As evil as Jehovah-rejecting Jews, Carthaginians, Mayans, Aztecs, and other pagans were, they were rank amateurs when compared to America’s sadistically depraved Progressive pagan elites. Rather than slaughtering babies in ravines or burning them to death in Moloch ovens American babies are barbarically murdered according to precise scientific procedures calling for the suctioning out of the brains of living babies or burning babies to death from the inside out while within the womb:

“Partial birth abortion was publicly unveiled in 1992. This method is used to kill babies from 20 weeks through full term. Because the baby is considerably larger and more well developed at this time, the opening of the woman’s cervix must be greatly enlarged in order to perform this abortion. The entire process requires three days…The amniotic fluid is drained and all but the baby’s head is pulled out of the birth canal. The abortionist uses a sharp pair of surgical scissors to stab the base of the living baby’s skull, spreading the scissors to enlarge the hole. The scissors are removed and a suction tube is inserted into the skull opening to “evacuate” the brain. This kills the baby and collapses the head, allowing the abortionist to fully deliver the child.” (New York State Leads the Way in Advocating Murder in the Womb, Pastor Steve Rowitt, Ph.D., Creation Studies Institute)

“…Saline Injection Abortion (or salt poisoning abortion) may be used after sixteen weeks when enough fluid has accumulated in the amniotic sac surrounding the baby. A long needle is inserted through the mother’s abdomen to remove and then replace some of the amniotic fluid with a solution of concentrated salt. The baby breathes in and swallows the solution and usually dies in one to two hours – though sometimes death takes many hours – from salt poisoning, dehydration, convulsions, hemorrhages of the brain and failure of other organs. The baby is literally burned inside and out by the strong salt solution.” (Ibid)

When it comes to human sacrifice on a massive scale the Aztecs occupy the peanut gallery when compared to the United States. According to the National Right to Life, since 1973 there have been 60, 069, 971 estimated abortions in the United States.

Further Evils: Cannibalization of Body Parts

With the return of human sacrifice there comes cannibalization of body parts:

“We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not going to crush that part, I’m going to basically crush below, I’m going to crush above, and I’m going to see if I can get it all intact….” (Deborah Nucatola, MD, Director of Medical Services, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, July 25, 2014)

When negotiating about fetal tissue, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services talks about a “less crunchy technique” for keeping body parts intact during a partial-birth abortion. She says the price, “has to be big enough that it’s worthwhile for me,” at one point explaining “I want a Lamborghini.” (‘Don’t Want to Lowball’ Baby Parts; Another Planned Parenthood Official on Tape, Kathryn Jean Lopez, nationalreview.com, July 21, 2015)

An undercover Planned Parenthood video from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) shows that the pagan rituals of the Aztecs have returned from the bowels of Hades with a vengeance. It reveals the gruesome reality that babies,

“… are born alive in Planned Parenthood abortuaries, and then laid on tables with their tiny little hearts still visibly beating in their chests. The abortionist then takes a pair scissors and cuts the face of the baby in two so that its brain can be extracted, a procedure that starts while the baby is still alive.” (ibid, Fischer)

Leading stem cell researchers believe that the evidence uncovered by CMP indicates that in order to send fresh specimens to researchers, Planned Parenthood keeps some babies,

“… alive right up until the moment their hearts are cut out of their bodies. This is because a heart is only good for research if it can be prepped for shipping within five minutes of death.” ibid

In light of this ongoing evil, if death is knocking on someone’s door unless they receive an organ transplant, then why not slaughter a child in order that its organs can be harvested since it’s permissible to harvest body parts from babies? Wesley J. Smith reports on this latest evil:

“The first case of a child being trafficked to Britain in order to have their organs harvested has been uncovered. The unnamed girl was brought to the UK from Somalia with the intention of removing her organs and selling them to those desperate for a transplant. Child protection charities warned that the case was unlikely to be an isolated incident as traffickers were likely to have smuggled a group of children into the country.” (Officials Discover Child Trafficked from Somalia to UK to Harvest Her Organs, Smith, Life News, Oct. 20, 2013)

While America’s Progressive elites and their depraved followers are very vocal when it comes to saving snail darters, owls, trash fish, alligators and wolves at the expense of human flourishing they generally rationalize murder of unborn humans on the lie that the unborn are not human but rather clumps of uterine cells in process of evolution. Accordingly, unborn humans are not human when being suctioned, snipped, torn apart, crushed, and burned alive in saline solutions. However the unborn magically transform into humans when their lungs, hearts, heads, and other body parts are coveted by well-funded pagans for research purposes.

The Satanic Creed of Evolutionary Progressivism

“Do not forget that the fundamental contrast has always been, is still, and always will be until the end: Christianity and Paganism, the idols or the living God.” Abraham Kuyper, The Stone Lectures, Princeton Seminary, 1898 (cited in Pagans in the Pews, Peter Jones, p.32)

“At the outbreak of the modern era, the (Progressive gnostic pagan) system of inverse biblical exegesis was once again activated.” Ioan Couliano, “The Tree of Gnosis”

This inverse exegesis from hell begins with evolution, which has persuaded people,

“…to think of everything in nature as the fruit of a gradual growth rather than an original creation.” Such inverse thinking means it is now impossible for educated Westerners to conceive of Biblical revelation because “in an evolving world, perfection obviously lay, not in the past, but in the future.” (Franklin Baumer, “The Making of the New Spirituality, James Herrick, p. 150)

Throughout paganized America inverse evolutionary origin accounts and pagan and occult pantheist ideologies of monism are now the reigning views of reality.

Monism, or continuity (also oneness), is the ruling idea in all ancient and modern mythological nature religions going back to Babylon. It is also the essence of Progressive spirituality. In the Progressive worldview reality is the idea that the universe is a quantum energy field of undifferentiated divine creative energy in motion (evolution). From ancient times the serpent biting its tail has symbolized the energy field while the serpent is the symbol of the universe’s creative evolutionary energies (serpent power). According to this view of reality God is not outside of the universe in the third heaven but rather God (the divine serpent) is the universe. God (the divine serpent) is within the circle thus within certain highly evolved elite pagans, demonstrating that “the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.” 1 John 5:19

Polytheism

Claiming to be ‘progressive, evolutionary, scientific and enlightened,’ satanic Progressive spirituality declares that the Biblical Creator God and sin are scientifically-passé and that both elites and their depraved followers are gods or goddesses in process of evolution.

Millions of human-deities, each with their own personal truths, moralities, and multiple and ever evolving ‘genders’ – this is pagan polytheism issuing in idolatry of self, pursuit of pleasure, leisure, status, and power. Moreover, it is escape from suffering by whatever means since if sin (the Biblical answer to man’s suffering) is a myth and the supreme evil is individual suffering then why should the man who envies God the Father not conceptually murder Him and seize His powers for his own agenda? Or why should abortionists, pornographers, pedophiles, transgenders, and Western ‘elites’ have to suffer the restraints placed on them by immutable truth, created norms, the Ten Commandments, Constitution, pro-lifers and other law-abiding Conservatives? This is why America’s Progressive elites and their depraved followers:

“…. will invariably (and) inevitably side with evil over good, wrong over right and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success. When I say the Modern Liberal is morally and intellectually retarded at the level of the five-year old child, it is not hyperbole: its diagnosis.” (Evan Sayet, The Kindergarten of Evil)

This they do because they cannot sleep unless they do evil and make someone fall “since they eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence.” Proverbs 4: 16-17

How does such evil begin? As Isaiah tragically details, it begins with the rejection of the Triune God, creational norms, Truth, and His Law (John 15:12). Where there is no love for Father there is no love for brother. (1st and 2nd Commandments):

“Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind: and thy neighbor as thyself.” Luke 10:27

The end of the commandment is charity (love) from a pure and humble heart, a good conscience and unfeigned faith. (1 Thess. 1:5) He that loves his neighbor fulfills the law for his heart is not blackened by thoughts of hate and murder:

“…murder is once for all forbidden; so even the child in the womb, while yet the mother’s blood is still being drawn on to form the human being, it is not lawful to destroy. To forbid birth is only quicker murder. It makes no difference whether one take away the life once born or destroy it as it comes to birth. He is a man, who is to be a man, the fruit is always present in the seed.” (Tertullian, Apologeticus IX. – 6, 8)

Idolatry and Human Sacrifice

The beginning of idolatry is pride (love of self), which together with rebelliousness, defiance, selfishness, jealousy, covetousness, greed, hatred, and envy demonstrates preference for one’s self instead of the Lord, neighbor and unwanted babies. Just as no violation of the Law can occur without one first being an idolater, murder is its’ final result, for where ‘self’ is primary then ‘self’ deserves everything it can get, no matter the cost to other people.

2 Timothy 3:3 – the Natural Man

When people willfully fall away from the knowledge of the only true God and relentlessly transgress against His commandments, these actions effectively turn them back to their natural state. This means that in turning away from the living Triune God the soul ceases to live from the spirit and begins to live with the life of the body. The disordered passions thereby revived absorb the life of the person who spiritually dies resulting in the natural man of 2 Tim. 3:3. (St. Tikhon, Works II, Political Apocalypse: A Study of Dostoevsky’s Grand Inquisitor, Ellis Sandoz, p. 120)

In this light we are able to understand that when our Lord said, “Wherever the body is, there will the vultures be gathered together” (Luke 17:37) the body collectively represents the spiritually dead who can no longer respond to the appeals of the Holy Spirit because by their own choice they are completely destitute of the knowledge of God. Thus their darkened, disintegrated souls are incapable of any influence except that of polluting and corrupting the air around them and spreading spiritual disease and death.

The vultures therefore represent the Angels of God appointed for punishment alighting on such a society and removing the putrid carcasses of the spiritually dead:

“The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let them hear.”Matthew 13: 41-43

But for the faithful, our Lord says:

“Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to each person according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and may enter the city by its gates. But outside are the dogs, the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.” Revelation 22: 10-15

How Can A Christian Be A Democrat After Infanticide Declarations?

 on 

Yesterday the party of death shot down and blocked the Infant born alive act. All democrats but 3 voted against it. This is very serious.

 

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

Congress finds the following:

(1) If an abortion results in the live birth of an infant, the infant is a legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States, and entitled to all the protections of such laws.

(2) Any infant born alive after an abortion or within a hospital, clinic, or other facility has the same claim to the protection of the law that would arise for any newborn, or for any person who comes to a hospital, clinic, or other facility for screening and treatment or otherwise becomes a patient within its care.

So again I ask How can a Christian be a Democrat? This is the biggest question the Churches in America should be crying from every pulpit. We have watched as states pass abortion up to and after birth. We have watched states trying to prevent this attacked and silenced. But what have we seen from the church?

Every single Christian in America who is a democrat should be in a race to their respective election headquarters to change their party affiliation. There are other alternatives such as independent. God is calling on His people to take a stand.

The Pope even spoke out recently and compared Abortion to hiring a hit man to take out a problematic person. According to Reuters he went on to say:

“I ask you: ‘Is it right to ‘take out’ a human life to solve a problem? What do you think? Is it right? Is it right or not?”

The only way this murder on demand will end is if the church stands firm. According to Pew Research Christianity is declining in America which is no surprise as emerging churches are doing a great dis-service to the faith. Anyway they say we are around 70% Christian and say this:

“To be sure, the United States remains home to more Christians than any other country in the world, and a large majority of Americans – roughly seven-in-ten – continue to identify with some branch of the Christian faith.”

So why are we silent on murder? Why don’t we send the party of death a great message from God?

It goes right along with Cortez and her push for government control of our lives in every aspect. She recently announced that we should think about not having children because life will become too hard. (More) That is the most ignorant thing to date she has said. Even worse than not eating hamburger because of her push to kill the Ag industry while regulating cow gas emissions. It’s worth noting that communist China limits births also. Is this what we want? (China’s population control)

How can a Christian be a Democrat? They can’t, not in good conscious. Too harsh? No it’s the truth. It’s time to decide who you will serve, mans sinful evil heart or God. Take a stand and shout I Am Not Ashamed Of The Gospel Of Christ! (Click to Source)

After Legalizing Abortions Up to Birth, New York Wants to Shut Down Christian Adoption Agency

ALLIANCE DEFENDING FREEDOM   FEB 18, 2019   |   8:30PM    ALBANY, NEW YORK

newhopefamilyservices

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys representing a faith-based adoption provider will be available for media interviews after a federal court hearing Tuesday in New Hope Family Services’ lawsuit against the state of New York. New Hope asked the court in December to stop the state from targeting it for its religious beliefs and to preserve its ability to continue placing children in adoptive homes while the lawsuit moves forward.

The New York State Office of Children and Family Services has singled out the religious nonprofit for its policy prioritizing the placement of children it serves in homes with a married mother and father and has threatened to force New Hope to immediately phase out its adoption program.

“Every child deserves a permanent home with loving parents,” said ADF Legal Counsel Jeana Hallock. “For over 50 years, New Hope has served children and families throughout the state of New York by offering a comprehensive, ‘arm-around-the-shoulder’ ministry and walking with both birth parents and adoptive parents to place children in forever homes. Protecting this religious nonprofit does nothing to interfere with other adoption providers. Banishing New Hope as a faith-based adoption provider, however, means fewer kids will find permanent homes, fewer adoptive parents will ever welcome their new child, and fewer birth parents will enjoy the exceptional support that New Hope has offered for decades. In short, everyone loses if the government forces New Hope to shut down.”

New Hope operates as a pregnancy resource center, temporary-foster-placement agency, and adoption agency. The nonprofit has never accepted state funding and, besides the fees paid by adoptive parents, funds its ministry through support from churches, individual donors, and private grants. According to the lawsuit, New Hope Family Services v. Poole, the state adoption agency sent New Hope a letter following a site visit and praised the nonprofit for “a number of strengths in providing adoption services within the community. One of which is the strong emphasis on assisting the birth parents in making an informed decision for their newborn, providing them time to make the decision, along with a supportive and detailed adoptive family selection process.”

OCFS changed course later when it reviewed New Hope’s policy and procedures manual and singled out the nonprofit’s policy regarding child placements. OCFS described the policy as “discriminatory and impermissible” despite the fact that it respectfully refers couples to other providers and has faced no formal complaints from prospective parents due to the policy. OCFS provided an ultimatum that New Hope revise its policy or submit a close-out plan for its adoption program.

“There’s no reason for the state to single out and punish those whose faith teaches them that the best home for a child includes a married father and mother,” said ADF Senior Counsel Roger Brooks, who will argue at Tuesday’s hearing on behalf of New Hope Family Services. “Adoption providers exist to assist children, not to affirm the desires of adults. Children in Syracuse, throughout New York, and across the country will suffer if this discrimination and hostility toward faith-based adoption providers becomes the status quo.”

ADF attorneys are asking the court to protect New Hope from being singled out, punished, or disfavored because of its religious beliefs—beliefs that motivate its care for women facing unplanned pregnancies and their children. (Click to Source)

How America Just Built an Altar for Satanic Worship

By David Hoffman

offer-up-child-on-altar-of-baal-molech-2-color-300x180

Things are shifting in America before our eyes. The state of New York recently passed a bill legalizing abortion right up the moment of birth. The name of the bill was the Reproductive Health Act. It had previously been blocked for years when Republicans controlled the State Senate in New York. Because the Democrats recently took both houses in the New York legislature, it was quickly passed. The Senate passed it 38-24. In the Assembly, it passed by a 92-47 margin. Gov. Cuomo quickly signed into law Tuesday night.

This is an ominous sign concerning the direction of abortion in our country. This bill could play a role in opening the floodgates in the future, as inevitably, other states begin to follow New York’s lead. We cannot take the passing of this bill lightly. Some people may argue that the pro-life movement is stronger than ever, however, just days ago an Iowa judge struck down a state law banning a woman from obtaining an abortion once a fetus’ heartbeat is detected, saying it violated the state’s constitution. There is still a very strong, vocal and bold resistance to the pro-life movement. We must remember that the legalization of gay marriage began with one state which then led to other states adopting similar laws. We have no future guarantee that the same trend will not occur regarding abortion laws in our nation.

As Christians, we have an obligation to stand in the gap for the helpless, and the most helpless lives are the lives of the unborn. Abortion is not just a societal issue. It is not just a cultural issue. Abortion is a moral issue, and all moral issues, at the end of the day, are actually spiritual issues.

When we look at abortion purely from a spiritual lens, abortion is satanic worship. There is truly no way around this reality, and in the following paragraphs, I will explain why this is so.

If we as believers are to be in the truth and in the light, we have to acknowledge abortion for what it really is: the shedding of innocent blood.

The shedding of innocent blood is a clear violation of the fourth commandment, which states in Exodus 20:13, “You shall not murder.” Proverbs 6:17b also says God hates “hands that shed innocent blood.” The right to life is the most valuable right that has been given to any human being by the Creator. This is why from the beginning of human history, the devil has sought to twist people’s hearts and to tempt them to murder. Murder is always inspired by Satan, whether it be in the womb or outside of it. The shedding of innocent blood is a form of satanic worship. It honors Satan. It never honors God.

Many pagan cultures throughout history had child sacrifice as part of worship to their gods. They would sacrifice children to idols in the hope that it would bring favor, blessing and a better life. The modern abortion industry, at its heart, is no different from the child-sacrifice rituals of the ancient world and pagan cultures. The only difference is that in ancient times they didn’t sacrifice children while they were still in their mother’s womb.

In 2004, the Guttmacher Institute anonymously surveyed 1,209 post-abortive women from nine different abortion clinics across the country. Of the women surveyed, 957 provided a main reason for having an abortion. 92.5 percent of those survey gave purely selfish reasons for why they decided to have an abortion. That means that 92.5 percent of these children were sacrificed in the hope that it would result in a better life for the mother.

We as believers cannot allow culture and the mainstream media to define abortion in our minds. Abortion truly is not an issue of reproductive rights or women’s health. An extremely small percentage of abortions are performed to save the life of the mother. Half of one percent of abortions are done because of rape or incest.The majority of abortions occur because it is the most convenient option for a woman who does not want deal with the consequences of having a child.

The Old Testament deals with this topic of child sacrifice. In biblical times, one of the gods mentioned throughout the Old Testament was Molech. This was a god of the Canaanites and Ammonites. One of the primary ways ancient cultures showed worship to this god was to sacrifice children to it. They would place the children in the idol’s metal hands, which had been heated up to the point that they were red and smoldering hot, or they would just throw the children into the fire pit below the idol.

God judged Israel harshly for participating in this satanic ritual. Jeremiah 32:35-36 says that Israel offered up its sons and daughters to Molech and that God would judge and lead the nation into captivity for doing so. There are other instances where God warns Israel about participating in this practice. It is not a one-time occurrence.

Psalm 106 says, “They worshiped their idols, which became a snare to them. They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to false gods. They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was desecrated by their blood. They defiled themselves by what they did.”

Instead of sacrificing children on an altar to Molech, today, children are sacrificed on the altar to “self.”Therefore, there truly is no way around calling abortion what it really is. It is satanic worship. Satanic worship, in essence, is the love of self above all others. This is what abortion is. Abortion is the love of self above the love of the child that has been conceived. It is an abomination in God’s eyes.

This struggle against the abortion industry will be a long-haul in our nation. This struggle does not look as though it will end soon. We as believers must stand up against abortion and stand for the lives of the unborn. We must always speak unashamedly concerning the issue while conducting ourselves lovingly with those on the other side.

We cannot back down on this issue. We must stand steadfastly for the lives of the unborn. We cannot afford to be on the wrong side of history concerning this issue. Abortion is a moral issue. It is a spiritual issue. As believers, we must understand that there is a real spiritual battle for the lives of the unborn, the lives of the mothers aborting them, and for the future laws of our nation. Our voices matter. Our votes matter.

Ultimately, abortion also hurts the mother who aborts her child. Jesus Christ offers grace and forgiveness to whoever comes to Him in humility and repentance, no matter how big the mistake.

So, as we stand boldly, uncompromisingly, and with the full conviction of truth and righteousness on our side, let us also stand in grace and love as we minister to those who are considering abortion or have already had one.

May we not give up. May we not be discouraged. May we not water down the truth about abortion. And may we one day see an end to abortion in the United States, by the grace of God. (Click to Source)

Music legend Charlie Daniels blasts NY’s Dem governor over new abortion law: ‘Satan is smiling’

By Louis Casiano | Fox News

charlie_daniels_andrew_cuomo_sbs

 

Music icon Charlie Daniels blasted New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in a Saturday tweet, asserting that a new state law that legalizes abortion up until birth threatens to make the Empire State resemble an infamous Nazi concentration camp.

“Watch the wrinkles on Cuomo’s face lengthen as the ramifications of the thousands of murders he has sanctioned come to bear on him,” Daniels, 82, tweeted. “The NY legislature has created a new Auschiwitz dedicated to the execution of a whole segment of defenseless citizens. Satan is smiling.”

Cuomo has come under fire from faith leaders and pro-lifers for the passage of the Reproductive Health Act. He called the law “a historic victory for New Yorkers and for our progressive values” on Jan. 22, the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States.

In celebration of the law, Cuomo directed One World Trade Center and other landmarks to be lit in pink.

CHARLIE DANIELS: THE ONLY TWO THINGS THAT MATTER ARE ‘THE GRACE OF GOD AND THE UNITED STATES MILITARY’

Charlie Daniels: Won't 'stand by and see America insulted'

 

Daniels – whose hits include “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” – has been outspoken in his support of a number of causes, such as veterans issues. He recently expressed displeasure with new U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., for using explicit language when calling for the impeachment of President Trump.

“People love you and you win,” Tlaib told supporters hours after she was sworn into Congress this month. “And when your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t, because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the mother—-er.’”

Daniels fired back: “Newly sworn in congresswoman Rashida Tlaib has already cheapened her tenure as the first thing most of the nation will remember about her is her frivolous foul mouth vow to impeach. It will be extremely difficult to take anything she says seriously from now on.”

Daniels recently released his fifth book, titled “Let’s Make the Day Count: The Everyday Wisdom of Charlie Daniels.” The book is broken into 100 subjects and tackles his 2010 medical scare while snowmobiling and the challenges of balancing work with relaxation, according to the Durango Herald in Colorado.

Joyce Meyer Defends Tattoos, Says She Might Get One to Make Religious People Mad

My God, the God of the Bible says: You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead nor print or tattoo any marks upon you; I am the Lord. (Leviticus 19:28)

We are the temple of the Holy Spirit :

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. (1 Corinthians 3:16-17) 

Joyce Meyer is a False Teacher!

joyce-meyer

During a recent conference, Christian speaker Joyce Meyer made a biblical case for getting tattoos and admitted she has been thinking of getting one herself just to shut the mouths of religious people.

The video clip posted by Joyce Meyer Ministries on March 14 kicks off with Meyer explaining the difference between being holy and religious.

“Holiness is not legalism,” Meyer declared.

She went on to explain that religious people have made a mess of holiness by putting a bunch of rules and regulations on people. She listed drinking, dancing, wearing makeup and more among those rules.

Meyer quoted Isaiah 44:5 in defense of getting permanent markings. The scripture says, “One will say, I am the Lord’s; and another will call himself by the name of Jacob; and another will write [even brand or tattoo] upon his hand, I am the Lord’s, and surname himself by the [honorable] name of Israel.”

She also shared the counterargument often used to discourage believers from getting tattoos found in Leviticus 19:28: “Do not cut your bodies for the dead, and do not mark your skin with tattoos. I am the LORD.”

Televangelist Pat Robertson, among others, has cited Leviticus to argue that getting tattoos is a “heathen practice.”

“You look at the Bible, the people are told not to mark their bodies and cut themselves like the heathen did. Tattooing is a heathen practice, it is not a Christian practice,” Robertson said in 2016.

But Meyer rejected the argument and contended that God also tattooed those He loves to Himself.

“The Bible says in Isaiah 49 that God has a picture of you tattooed on the palm of His hand,” she maintained.

“I’m right on the verge of going and getting a tattoo,” she added, pointing to her shoulder blade. “I thought I might as well just push all the religious people right off the cliff and just get it over with.”

Meyer said her ink would say, “I belong to the Lord.” She admitted that her husband pushed back a bit on her stance but they realized it was just a religious stance stemming from legalism.

Evangelist Christine Caine, seated in the front row of the meeting, can be seen rooting Meyers on as she expressed her interest in getting a tattoo.

“Why would I do that (get a tattoo)? Just to make religious demons mad, no other reason,” she maintained.

“I lived in so much bondage from legalism,” Meyer revealed of her past. “Everything in legalism is about something you can not do. Let me tell you something — it is not boring to serve Christ, it is so much fun and there’s so much you can do and not only that, you can enjoy all of it!”

The Saint Louis native pointed out that in Ezekiel 16:9-13 there was a big celebration and God put earrings and nose rings on the Israelites.

“Here’s the bottom line, it’s all about your motives and how you are doing things. We can’t look at the outside of somebody and decide for ourselves that they’re an evil person … That’s why so many people today don’t want anything to do with the church ’cause all they get is criticism and judgement,” she concluded.

The clip finished with Meyer encouraging those in attendance to pursue holiness but in freedom.

Hillsong New York City Pastor Carl Lentz has also defended Christians getting tattoos and addressed the criticism he often receives about his own markings.

(SCREENSHOT: INSTAGRAM)Carl Lentz poses with a Kevin Durant while on vacation, July 9, 2014.

“Biblical interpretation is huge right? So with tattoos not being allowed you mean Leviticus. We play both sides of the coin I think that is healthy. Like this paradox of scripture, interpretation is actually is part of our faith, the tension of it. So, on one hand, we say that is the Old Testament scripture, there is no New Testament verification of that. That law that had to do with slaves, that identified you as part of a tribe we don’t believe that came through the cross,” Lentz told World Religion News last year.

“We don’t believe that when Jesus died and rose again that old Levitical scripture applied to our modern life. That is ridiculous,” the Virginia native argued. “At the same time, there are some things we do believe follow through on the cross. So the way we break down we would literally put up the Old Testament and then put a cross in the middle and then we put up the New Testament and we say anything that comes through the cross is eternal. Anything that stops is Old Testament.”

Making the case against tattoos, some Christians have cited 1 Corinthians 10:23, pointing out that the question isn’t about whether tattooing one’s body is a “sin.” But it’s more about whether it’s “a good and necessary thing to do.”

Will Honeycutt, a professor at Liberty University, believes that while “the Bible does not explicitly forbid tattoos,” Christians should remember that “the Bible has a high view of the body as God’s handiwork, which is not to be disfigured.”

Also, he argued, one should not get a tattoo out of rebellion. Rather, “our primary motive for anything we do should be to glorify God.”

“Are you seeking to direct people’s thoughts toward God or yourself?” Honeycutt posed. (Click to Source)

Idolatry, Demons, and Ecumenism

Whom can the faithful church of God legitimately partner with in ministry? That question has been a point of contention among professing Christians for the past 100 years. And that’s been illustrated by what is known as the ecumenical movement, the history of which we surveyed last week.

And the principal dogma of the ecumenical movement of the 20th century was that anyone who called themselves a Christian was to be regarded as a Christian. It didn’t matter if they were a theological liberal who denied the bodily resurrection of Christ or penal substitutionary atonement, or if they were a Roman Catholic who denied the Gospel of justification by faith alone. The important thing was that those who called themselves Christians, and held somewhat to a “Christian” view of morality, were able to unite together in order to show strength in numbers, and therefore to compete in the culture wars for larger societal influence. Whether it was religious liberty, the unborn child’s right to life, race relations, a free-market economy, or improving education—all good things!—winning the battle over these social issues became more important to these people than the doctrine that divided them. So they downplayed the importance of the fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith in order to partner together on these issues.

Again, this is always done in the name of seizing influence, which, it is always assumed, is absolutely necessary for successful evangelism and for revival. It’s a fundamentally man-centered concept of salvation, because it supposes that unbelievers will be more likely to convert to Christianity if they see how popular, influential, and culturally relevant it is. The fruitlessness of this kind of thinking was illustrated in a classic interaction between a pro-ecumenical minister and Martyn Lloyd-Jones. The man believed the ecumenical movement to be a sign of hope for the future. He said, “But surely, when so many churches are coming together in a World Council of Churches, revival must be on the way.” Do you recognize the unspoken assumption? “If we can have worldwide movements and such large gatherings in the name of Christ, surely unbelievers will want to join us!” And Martyn Lloyd-Jones’ reply was just brilliant.  He said, “You seem to be arguing that if you succeed in bringing together a sufficient number of dead bodies they will come alive!” (G. N. M. Collins, “The Friend,” Chosen by God, 262–63).

Lloyd-Jones’ response reveals a different fundamental conviction about human nature and about what it means to be a Christian. Becoming a Christian isn’t joining a cultural movement. It’s not deciding to join a social club or some sort of fraternity. Becoming a Christian happens when a sinner who is spiritually dead is miraculously raised to spiritual life by God’s sovereign work of regeneration. A Christian is one whom God has made alive from the dead through the preaching of the one true Gospel of Christ. And those who are possessed of different fundamental convictions concerning the Gospel are not just “separated brethren;” they are the one spiritually alive and the other spiritually dead. And as Lloyd-Jones said, it doesn’t make a difference how many dead bodies you could gather into one place. What matters is whether God, by the Holy Spirit, breathes spiritual life into men and women by the preaching of the Gospel.

unity-300x223

That is the test of whether Christianity is advancing in the world. Not how big our churches can get, but whether sinners were united to Christ by faith in the Gospel, and thus had found forgiveness of sins in Him. And if that’s what mattered, then it is the height of folly to downplay the importance of the doctrines of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the only way of salvation, in service of a substance-less “unity.” There can be no genuine unity between those who have been saved from their sins through the Gospel, and those who yet remain enemies of that Gospel—no matter what people are willing to call themselves. And so there can be no partnership in ministry between believers and unbelievers, because there is such a radical difference between them. And history has shown us that when we water down fundamental doctrinal distinctives for the sake of a bigger “tent,” we lose the Gospel—the Evangel itself. And if you lose the Gospel, there is no ground for genuine unity.

And it’s precisely this issue that Paul takes up in 2 Corinthians 6:14–7:1:

“Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? 15Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? 16Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, ‘I will dwell in them and walk among them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.’ 17Therefore, ‘Come out from their midst and be separate,’ says the Lord. ‘And do not touch what is unclean; And I will welcome you. 18And I will be a father to you, And you shall be sons and daughters to Me,’ Says the Lord Almighty. 7:1Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”

The apostolic instruction could not be clearer: because there is this radical, objective difference between believers and unbelievers at the most fundamental level, there can be no partnership between them in ministry.

The Idolatry of False Religion

Now, you can see this passage’s consistent emphasis on the theme of idolatry. Verse 16 asks, “What agreement has the temple of God with idols?” And the context of the Old Testament quotations to “Come out from their midst and be separate” and to “not touch what is unclean” (Isa 52:11) has to do with Israel’s separation from the idolatry of the pagan nations.

And Corinth is one of those pagan nations! When the Corinthian Christians came to Christ, they had to repudiate the Greco-Roman polytheistic system of idol worship. Like the Christians in the pagan city of Thessalonica, they had to “turn to God from idols to serve [the] living and true God” (1 Thess 1:9). And they did that. But their conversion to Christ didn’t remove them from a society where the worship of idols absolutely dominated everyday life. Holidays, festivals, celebrations—even the ideology and philosophy that dominated everyday conversation—was influenced by pagan temple worship. Idolatry was simply part of their culture, and as believers in Jesus, they had to do everything they could to guard against any syncretism, any blending of idolatrous worship with Christianity.

And the Apostle Paul knew that was a temptation for them, and so he addressed the issue of idolatry with the Corinthians in his previous letter to them. He devotes almost two entire chapters in 1 Corinthians (8 and 10) to instructing them how to live in a society dominated by idolatry without compromising commitment to Christ. And in those chapters he makes clear the absolute incompatibility between the worship of Christ and the worship of idols: “Do not be idolaters” (1 Cor 10:7); “Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry” (1 Cor 10:14); “Or do you not know that . . . idolaters . . . will [not] inherit the kingdom of God?” (1 Cor 6:9–10).

The Demonic Nature of Idolatry

He explains why in 1 Corinthians 10:16–22. Even though idols don’t exist and are no true gods at all, it’s not that there’s no spiritual component to idolatry. “No, but I say that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God” (1 Cor 10:20). You could imagine the Corinthians thinking, “Now Paul, you just said that an idol is nothing and sacrifices to idols are nothing. So we should be able to take part in those rituals, right? They aren’t true gods!” And Paul replies, “No. It’s true that they’re not true gods; there’s no such thing as any god but the true God. But those idols are demons.”

This is a startling point. Every false religion in the world is not just wrong. It is demonic. It is energized and powered by the kingdom of darkness that is ruled by Satan himself.

Paul says the gods of the pagans are demons. And, just as when we sit down at the Lord’s table to worship Christ we share in the body and blood of Christ, so also when idolaters sacrifice to their demonic gods they are partaking of fellowship with demons. And so Paul says, “I do not want you to become sharers in demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons!”

1-cor-1021-300x158

(1 Corinthians 10:20-21) In other words: You can’t participate in the worship of Christ while you continue to participate in the worship of demons. That’s just ridiculous! There is absolutely no fellowship or spiritual partnership between the people of God and the people of this world.

The Context of 2 Corinthians 6:14–7:1

Now, that was Paul’s concern throughout the letter of First Corinthians. But in SecondCorinthians there’s a bit of a different context. The Corinthians are still guarding themselves against the paganism of their surrounding culture, to be sure. But the pressing issue as Paul writes Second Corinthians isn’t so much the pressure of unbelieving paganism, but rather the corrupting doctrine of the Judaizing false apostles (2 Cor 11:13; cf. 11:4, 22). These were professing Christians who are claiming that faith in Christ was necessary, but not enough for salvation. If you’re really going to be saved, you also have to be circumcised, and observe the Mosaic ceremonies, too (cf. Acts 15:1).

And in order to make room for their false doctrine, these interlopers had done everything they could to undermine Paul’s integrity and credibility with the Corinthians—hurling accusation after accusation against him, and inciting a mutiny against Paul that prompted an unplanned, painful visit (cf. 2 Cor 2:1) as well as a tearful letter of severe reproof (cf. 2 Cor 2:4). And from 2 Corinthians, we learn that, through Paul’s severe letter, the majority the church saw these charlatans for what they were and reaffirmed their loyalty to Paul (2 Cor 2:5–11; 7:5–16). But there was still a significant minority who were deceived. So before visiting them again, Paul writes 2 Corinthians to affirm his love for the repentant majority, and to exhort the unrepentant minority to break fellowship with these false teachers and return to him and the unadulterated Gospel he preaches with their whole hearts.

And it’s worth mentioning that 2 Cor 6:14–7:1 comes sandwiched in between a twofold appeal for the Corinthians to open their hearts, be reconciled to Paul, and affirm their loyalty to the Gospel he preaches (2 Cor 6:11–13; 7:2–4). But because the heart of this relational crisis is a moral crisis, in between that twofold appeal for reconciliation, he calls them to separate from these false apostles.

Apostate “Christianity” is No Better than Paganism

Now, wait a minute. These false apostles are Judaizers. They’re professing Christians who were just saying that you needed to add a few religious ceremonial works to your faith in Christ for salvation. But this text is all about separating oneself from pagan idolatry. How does that work?

paul-writing-300x221

And that is the genius of this passage. Paul’s saying, “Do you remember my instruction from my previous letter concerning the necessity of your total break from the idolatry and the paganism of your culture? Do you remember how I explained how incongruous it is to be involved in a spiritual partnership with Christ and with demons? Well, my dear Corinthians, that’s not only true of the out-and-out heathen—of the pagan idolaters who deny Christ outright. It also applies even to professing Christian teachers who corrupt the Gospel of salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.

“Because these false apostles teach you that salvation comes by faith in Christ plus religious ritualism, they preach another gospel which is really no gospel at all (Gal 1:6–9). And though they call Christ their God, He is another Jesus whom we have not preached (2 Cor 11:4), and therefore is nothing but a demon, right alongside the false gods of the Greco-Roman pantheon (1 Cor 10:20–21). They are idolaters! And just as much as you cannot have any spiritual partnership with the idols of the Gentiles, neither can you have any spiritual partnership with these heretics, who fashion a god into their own image and idolize a demon they call ‘Jesus.’ You must come out from them and be separate!”

What implications does this have for the philosophy and theology that undergirds the ecumenical movement?

It teaches us that simply calling yourself a Christian, or mentally assenting to the doctrine of the Trinity, or confessing faith in someone named “Jesus,” does not automatically make you a Christian.

It teaches us that there are people who will claim to “believe in Jesus,” who are nevertheless, as Paul calls them in this passage, unbelievers (2 Cor 6:14, 15).

It teaches us that there are people, like the Judaizers, who profess to be Christians but who are not Christians, because they’re not united to Christ through genuine faith in the Gospel—because they teach that faith alone in Christ’s work alone (though necessary) is not sufficient for salvation, but that we must add works of ceremonial and religious ritualism to “preserve and increase” our justification. The Judaizers required circumcision; today’s heretics require baptism, or penance, or door-knocking, or deeds of charity; but the Gospel of Christ is fatally undermined just the same.

And it teaches us, therefore, that if we compromise by making light of the fundamental doctrinal differences that do genuinely divide us, and if we unite together in ministry while we are not united in the Gospel—even in the name of combatting genuine social evils—we are guilty of the grossest kind of idolatry, and are no better than pagans.

Idolatry, Demons, and Ecumenism

idolatry

“Every false religion in the world is not just wrong. It is demonic. It is energized and powered by the kingdom of darkness that is ruled by Satan himself,” says Mike Riccardi. He goes on to say “There is absolutely no fellowship or spiritual partnership between the people of God and the people of this world.” So, if we’re in relationship with those who teach doctrines of demons, should we break fellowship with them? You must, says Riccardi. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. And he offers plenty of Scripture to back up what he says. Bottom line: “You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons.” 1 Cor 10:21

In the comments below the article, Riccardi responds to a question. In his thoughtful answer he urges believers not to pray with apostates:

We cannot pray together because they do not pray to the one true God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. And that’s precisely the point of 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1. Paul calls the Judaizers unbelievers, and then speaks about how the Corinthians must separate from their idolatry. But the Judaizers weren’t pagans, or even Jews. They were professing Christians who believed in the necessity of faith in Jesus for salvation; they just didn’t believe in the sufficiency of Christ’s work for salvation. And yet Paul likens them to idol-worshipers, because it didn’t matter that they called their god “Jesus,” that was “another Jesus” (2 Cor 11:4), nothing more than an idol, akin to the idols of the pagans.

In the same way, because Roman Catholics — though they believe in the necessity of faith in Christ — nevertheless do not believe in the sufficiency of faith in Christ for salvation, the god they worship is one fashioned by their own minds, and is not the God of the Bible. For that reason, it would be as blasphemous to join them in prayer to their false gods as it would be for us to pray with Hindus to their gods, or with the ancient Greco-Romans to their pantheon of gods.

Sadly, there are scores of false converts who truly believe they’re born again Christians. So,

Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test! (2 Corinthians 13:5)

Now to another stellar article by Mike Riccardi that’s published on The Cripplegate:

Whom can the faithful church of God legitimately partner with in ministry? That question has been a point of contention among professing Christians for the past 100 years. And that’s been illustrated by what is known as the ecumenical movement, the history of which we surveyed last week.

And the principal dogma of the ecumenical movement of the 20th century was that anyone who called themselves a Christian was to be regarded as a Christian. It didn’t matter if they were a theological liberal who denied the bodily resurrection of Christ or penal substitutionary atonement, or if they were a Roman Catholic who denied the Gospel of justification by faith alone. The important thing was that those who called themselves Christians, and held somewhat to a “Christian” view of morality, were able to unite together in order to show strength in numbers, and therefore to compete in the culture wars for larger societal influence. Whether it was religious liberty, the unborn child’s right to life, race relations, a free-market economy, or improving education—all good things!—winning the battle over these social issues became more important to these people than the doctrine that divided them. So they downplayed the importance of the fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith in order to partner together on these issues.

Again, this is always done in the name of seizing influence, which, it is always assumed, is absolutely necessary for successful evangelism and for revival. It’s a fundamentally man-centered concept of salvation, because it supposes that unbelievers will be more likely to convert to Christianity if they see how popular, influential, and culturally relevant it is. The fruitlessness of this kind of thinking was illustrated in a classic interaction between a pro-ecumenical minister and Martyn Lloyd-Jones. The man believed the ecumenical movement to be a sign of hope for the future. He said, “But surely, when so many churches are coming together in a World Council of Churches, revival must be on the way.” Do you recognize the unspoken assumption? “If we can have worldwide movements and such large gatherings in the name of Christ, surely unbelievers will want to join us!” And Martyn Lloyd-Jones’ reply was just brilliant.  He said, “You seem to be arguing that if you succeed in bringing together a sufficient number of dead bodies they will come alive!” (G. N. M. Collins, “The Friend,” Chosen by God, 262–63).

Lloyd-Jones’ response reveals a different fundamental conviction about human nature and about what it means to be a Christian. Becoming a Christian isn’t joining a cultural movement. It’s not deciding to join a social club or some sort of fraternity. Becoming a Christian happens when a sinner who is spiritually dead is miraculously raised to spiritual life by God’s sovereign work of regeneration. A Christian is one whom God has made alive from the dead through the preaching of the one true Gospel of Christ. And those who are possessed of different fundamental convictions concerning the Gospel are not just “separated brethren;” they are the one spiritually alive and the other spiritually dead. And as Lloyd-Jones said, it doesn’t make a difference how many dead bodies you could gather into one place. What matters is whether God, by the Holy Spirit, breathes spiritual life into men and women by the preaching of the Gospel.

That is the test of whether Christianity is advancing in the world. Not how big our churches can get, but whether sinners were united to Christ by faith in the Gospel, and thus had found forgiveness of sins in Him. And if that’s what mattered, then it is the height of folly to downplay the importance of the doctrines of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the only way of salvation, in service of a substance-less “unity.” There can be no genuine unity between those who have been saved from their sins through the Gospel, and those who yet remain enemies of that Gospel—no matter what people are willing to call themselves. And so there can be no partnership in ministry between believers and unbelievers, because there is such a radical difference between them. And history has shown us that when we water down fundamental doctrinal distinctives for the sake of a bigger “tent,” we lose the Gospel—the Evangel itself. And if you lose the Gospel, there is no ground for genuine unity.

And it’s precisely this issue that Paul takes up in 2 Corinthians 6:14–7:1:

“Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? 15Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? 16Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, ‘I will dwell in them and walk among them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.’ 17Therefore, ‘Come out from their midst and be separate,’ says the Lord. ‘And do not touch what is unclean; And I will welcome you. 18And I will be a father to you, And you shall be sons and daughters to Me,’ Says the Lord Almighty. 7:1Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”

The apostolic instruction could not be clearer: because there is this radical, objective difference between believers and unbelievers at the most fundamental level, there can be no partnership between them in ministry. (Click to Source)

GREAT PYRAMID HIDING A STARGATE? Scientist Suggests There Is A Mysterious Object Hidden In Unexplored Cavity That Pharaoh Used “To Pass Through The Gates Of The Sky”

Giza Pyramid: Scientist Suggests There is an ‘Iron Throne’ in Unexplored Cavity

1060705652

The newly discovered cavity in the Giza Pyramid has left scientists around the world wondering what lies inside the mysterious chamber. Italian mathematician Giulio Magli may have some answers.

In November 2017, the magazine Nature published the results of the ScanPyramids project revealing that there is a large cavity at least 30 meters long within the Pyramid of Cheops (Giza Pyramid) in Egypt. Since then, scientists and archaeologists around the world have been trying to discover what this void contains and what its purpose was.

Giulio Magli, professor of Mathematics and Archaeoastronomy at the Politecnico di Milano, has proposed one of the first hypotheses; his conclusions were published by Eurekalert.

According to the scientist, the newly found chamber was hardly a mistake made during the construction, neither did it carry an architectural function such as reducing the load on the main corridor of the pyramid, as some experts have suggested.

Magli believes that the answer can be found in the burial religion of the ancient Egypt.

“There is a possible interpretation, which is in good agreement with what we know about the Egyptian funerary religion as witnessed in the Pyramids Texts. In these texts it is said that the pharaoh, before reaching the stars of the north, will have to pass the “gates of the sky” and sit on his “throne of iron,” Magli was reported as saying by Eurekalert.

“The room may contain, at its upper end and exactly under the apex of the great pyramid, an object needed by Cheops after crossing the doors: the “iron throne” mentioned in the Pyramid Texts,” Magli said.

The scientist noted that in the pyramid there are four “air ducts” along which the spirit of the deceased ruler could “get out”, while the passage leading to the north ends with a sealed door. It is behind this door, according to Magli, that there is chamber containing the throne.

He recalled that inside the same pyramid the throne of Cheop’s mother Queen Hetepheres had been discovered. It had a low cedar base covered in gold and faience.

“Cheops’ could be similar, but coated with thin iron sheets. Of course it would not be melted iron, but meteoritic iron, that is, fallen from the sky in the form of Iron meteorites [distinguishable due to the high percentage of Nickel] and again cited in the Texts,” Magli said.

The pyramid of Cheops also known as the Giza Pyramid is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, which was built in the middle of the third millennium BC, at the time of Pharaoh Khufu (Cheops), representative of the Fourth Dynasty of the Ancient Egyptian Kingdom.

The structure, 145 meters in height and 230 meters in width, remains one of the tallest and largest structures ever built by mankind. (Click to Source)
