Two Roman Catholic priests from Illinois were arrested at Miami’s South Beach yesterday, September 5, 2018, while engaging in oral sex in a car right beside a playground for children. The Pope is accused of knowingly covering up a scandal where the cardinal of Washington was manipulating young seminarians into having sex with him so that they would have a better chance of moving up through the ranks. A new investigation against the diocese of Illinois and Indiana is opening amid more allegations of sexual abuse of young children by predatory pedophile priests.
When are people going to see that ritualistic religion does not honor God, nor does it produce truly godly people. Any religious organization that denies the requirement of God to be “born again,” is of the antichrist.Jesus himself, in his conversation with Nicodemus the pharisee, explained the requirements for being a true follower of Christ.
3 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.” 4 “What do you mean?” exclaimed Nicodemus. “How can an old man go back into his mother’s womb and be born again?” 5 Jesus replied, “I assure you, no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit. 6 Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives birth to spiritual life. 7 So don’t be surprised when I say, ‘You must be born again.’
“Spiritual” institutions do not produce true followers of Christ when the basic requirement for spiritual transformation is disregarded and replaced by man-made tradition and ritual. According to the bible “the heart of man the most deceitful of all things and is desperately wicked.” (Jeremiah 17:9) Without spiritual transformation, being born again, people cannot have the evil and wickedness excised from their hearts by the Holy Spirit.
Satan has truly blinded the religious people. They see with their eyes and hear with their ears by deny that what is going on in the Catholic church will ever touch their lives, or that it is true. How can anyone remain in a group where children are the targets of predatory pedophiles? How can people reconcile their beliefs to a church that is full of homosexual priests? Both of these sins are anathema or an abomination to God.
Paul says that those who change the message of the gospel are under a curse, and warns that followers of Christ should not listen to their message.
6 I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ. You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News 7 but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ. 8 Let God’s curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you. 9 I say again what we have said before: If anyone preaches any other Good News than the one you welcomed, let that person be cursed. (Galatians 1:6-9)
The national media and the powers of darkness are using this newest piece of nastiness to continue its bludgeoning attacks against true Christianity. However, those who perpetrate such activities are not Christian at all. They just put on a particular set of clothing that is identifiable as christian by those who are religious. Inwardly, they still wear their sin nature and are serving their father the Devil.
7 Dear children, don’t let anyone deceive you about this: When people do what is right, it shows that they are righteous, even as Christ is righteous. 8 But when people keep on sinning, it shows that they belong to the devil, who has been sinning since the beginning. But the Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil. 9 Those who have been born into God’s family do not make a practice of sinning, because God’s life*is in them. So they can’t keep on sinning, because they are children of God.10 So now we can tell who are children of God and who are children of the devil. Anyone who does not live righteously and does not love other believers does not belong to God.
(I John 3:7-10)
