Video Warning About Easter

Probably to some of my readers this is not new information but thought I would post at least one video given the false holiday being celebrated by millions today.  I do not celebrate Easter and consider it a false holiday like Christmas. Here is the definition of Easter, even the Catholics admit what the word really means.

Independent Baptist Ministers Deceived By Dominionism

Remember this article?

A Jingoistic Preacher

This article is a continuation almost of that article. Here are more blinded by mis-directed patriotism. The Dominionist stuff is growing stronger in IFB churches. I stayed away from many years ago as I visited some and they were into full blown Dominionism.

535 deceived independent Baptist ministers all lined up on the Capitol steps.




So many who remain unaware of the right and left deceptions and of the new world order! While I keep in contact with some of my old sincere IFB church members, it seems the IFBs are getting worse with this political stuff instead of any better.

Singing Amazing Grace on the captiol steps. Sorry the video is sideways. Hey it's always good to pass out Bibles, but what comes with the rest of it is the problem? How many actual born again Christians are in the halls of Congress? I tend to think the number is low. Maybe acouple independent types from lesser known states who left both of the main parties? It seems the corruption there would have any true Christian run for the hills.

Go to the Awake America website, on the video, it has the basic Dominionist messages.

"Our country needs a commitment and renewed purpose by Pastors to encourage Christian involvement back in government on every level."

Chuck Harding is the leader of this group. He is a pastor at an independent baptist church in Findlay Ohio.




So many of them always do wear a red tie. Does he know the Constitution is basically gone? Will this man speak out against the NDAA? Has he? That said the Constitution while ideal among human governments is not God's Word. Countries and nations rise and fall. Sadly whatever freedoms America once had are ebbing away. He may be well intentioned in wanting representatives to read the Bible, they certainly need to but sadly he is deceived by the American exceptionalism. He seems to have entered the David Barton "America as Christian nation" dream world. Doesn't the irony of issuing these pronouncements among Roman architecture come up for him? When he says "We fight for the Constitution of the United States", that sounds weird, what did endless Middle Eastern wars have to do with that?

Obama Signs Monsanto Protection Act



 Think about that! They passed a law giving a corporation immunity from the law. Now you can tell the corporations are writing our laws. America has been fully sold out. They do plan to destroy our food. So while everyone was distracted by the homosexual marriage wickedness, this was passed through just like NDAA was signed on New Years Eve.

Obama Signs Monsanto Protection Act

"Food, shelter, and clothing are often considered the three basic needs by humans and the actions by President Obama on Tuesday have now left millions of Americans across the land in shock as the very first tenet has been horrifically jeopardized by his signing the Monsanto Protection Act into law (H.R. 933) as mentioned on the Facebook page for Food Democracy Now. For those that are new to this situation, the Monsanto Protection Act is the name given to what's known as a legislative rider that was inserted into the Senate Continuing Resolution spending bill. Using the deceptive title of Farmer Assurance Provision, Section 735 of this bill actually grants Monsanto immunity from federal courts pending the review of any GM crop that is thought to be dangerous."

Remember Monsanto is joined with the United Nations Global Compact.

Remember the Vatican supports Monsanto!

Monsanto Hangs Out at the Vatican.

They want Dominion Over the World's Food Supply. Remember the way Monsanto works with seeds, a farmer must rebuy seed every season instead of using the seeds left over from last years crops.

Terminator Seeds the most evil thing ever invented by Monsanto.

For The Christians Being Fooled By Holistic Medicine



This is an issue that pervades my life. It is something that I have to be careful of personally. There are limits to modern medicine, while it has done good for many of us saving or sustaining our lives there are pitfalls too. Some of us do wisely question flu vaccinations, genetically modified food, or seek after home remedies that can help with our health. I've used colloidal silver on a past skin condition--I didn't drink any, but it worked. My regular medical doctor told me silver had antibiotic qualities. We may shop at health food stores, buy herbs, and other places hoping to find healthy food and remedies. Many of us have concerns about modern medicine and want to find the best solutions. However saying that, with the holistic "health" world, there are a lot of pitfalls.

For this article I don't need to rehash the obvious offenders there are plenty of articles who warn of everything from Iridology to Reiki but the more subtle stuff. There are two main areas I see Christians especially being fooled by.

NATUROPATHS

One thing I went through years ago, was facing some health problems and having a Christian friend recommend a naturopath to me. She was an evangelical who I did Bible studies with as a new believer. She was in a church I realized was false and only visited once as I became more seasoned. This naturopath was a friend of hers and since I could not afford the regular naturopaths, she told me she asked him to help me and he said Yes.  Even while reading through the naturopath definition link to research this article, while I had discerned most of them had New Age roots,  I didn't realize their studies were based in something called vitalism! Here is another definition:

The philosophical perspective on which the naturopathic clinical approach is based is that of vitalism. According to vitalist philosophy, living beings are not machines running according to strict cause-and-effect relations, but are beings whose existence is guided by a single vital force.



Considering what I know the bible warns about the 'god of forces", this makes me want to run. I always thought naturopaths mostly were "New Age", I guess this explains why to me.

Daniel 11:38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

I remember telling the above friend, "well get someone who is not New Age and knows about herbs". She had this other naturopath she had used and recommended him, but I refused his treatment plan when he wanted me to go off all modern medicines and had named one of his herbal remedies he wanted me to take after Edgar Cayce. I told my friend, "You do realize that Edgar Cayce was an occultist don't you?" At the time she pooh-poohed my warning telling me she believed Edgar Cayce had been a Christian. I wisely at the time decided to bow out of the whole deal and told her I disagreed.

The other day the naturopath issue came up, I asked a friend, "Are there any naturopaths who are not New Age"? Guess God answered my question quickly. I remember asking God in prayer, what is the deal with naturopaths?

I saw an entire small town going to visit a naturopath for years and this included many Christians in my old town who claimed she was "Christian".  I never could afford her, but used to wonder about why she was so popular. Many church going, down to earth folks swore by her and her high cost herbal remedies, one friend even claimed she cured her of a certain condition for good. I remember saying to a few of them, "Does she avoid New Age stuff?" but reading about naturopathy, I have some serious concerns. Many naturopaths will even claim they are Christian or that there is nothing in their philosophy or version of medicine that is against the Christian gospel. If the whole field is based in this concept of "body energy" or what the Chinese call Chi, or QI [see picture above] doesn't that make the whole thing false? How many Christians even realize that naturopathy automatically has these New Age connections?
"The objective of naturopathy is to re-establish life energy which permits the body to begin a self-healing process."
The thing that makes all this so complicated is that sometimes herbal remedies and others can make a postive affect on the health. We know nutrition can change things for people.  Health food can improve digestion. What confuses me is there are such a thing as "Christian" naturopaths out there offering their services. Some Seventh Day Adventists swear by naturopaths. Can there be such a thing if the foundation of naturopathy is based in the manipulation of a "life force"? Do you see the taints of pantheism there? So much of this has its roots in false Eastern religions!



Christians will often discern the overtly New Age, most are usually going to question acupuncture and iridology to a degree, but I've had people ask me even of acupuncture and this was something I had to look up, if it was somehow based in "science". People really do believe it is scientific even if they do not understand it entirely. What they do not realize is acupuncture and all those needles being used is based on the Chinese belief in a "life force", and that the needles are used to "alter" it. Show any friend this, who may wonder if acupuncture is scientific and of medical use.
Now, when I speak of Energy, I am speaking of the force we call life. The Chinese term it Ch’i Energy and liken it to the streams, brooks, rivers, lakes, seas, and oceans of Earth. The Life Force flows in us via interconnected pathways. In a way it is like electricity. It flows in a current, and though we cannot actually see it, we can see the manifestations of it, and feel the effects of it. In a way it is like the blood flow which, though we usually do not see it, pulses life through us. All life has it, and it converses with every aspect of life. Without this Ch’i Energy, this Life force, we do not have life, we are dead.
The Chinese saw the existence of humanity and, in fact, all of Nature as dependent on this Ch’i. It is only be Ch’i that the planets move, the sun shines, the wind blows, the Elements exist. It is only by Ch’i that human beings live and breathe. When Ch’i is flowing, all of life’s processes are in operation in a rhythmic and harmonious way. This Life Force is the cohesion of our bodymindspirit, and the integration of the myriad aspects of each individual human being. Ch’i is spoken of with reverence because it is the basis of life and because, if it goes awry, it becomes the basis of disease. Health and illness are defines by this Life Energy. It is this that the traditional Acupuncturist speaks of balancing if some aspect of this life energy is no longer in harmony with the totality.

When I was a nonbeliever, I did dabble a little with this stuff, I had acupuncture done a few times--it never worked, and even saw a naturopath who did iridiology on me once, that didn't work either and they didn't even figure out what was then an undiagnosed condition. My times with holistic medicine outside of nutrition based stuff and home remedies were very short and sporadic, as it is usually quite expensive. What was weird to me however was after I became a Christian, was seeing while I had some serious misgivings regarding the holistic health world how so many just seemed to keep embracing all of it. One area I see a lot of Christians thinking is scientific too is HOMEOPATHY.




HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES

Homeopathic remedies to me never seemed to make sense. Years ago I would go to my then local health food store and noticed they had tons of this stuff. I figured out somehow whatever was in them was just a parts of billions or millions game and remember thinking "how is that going to work, it sounds like a scam!" Being of more economic limited means, I didn't have the money to dish out on this stuff anyway. However I have known a lot of Christians who take homeopathic remedies, and even ran into a Lutheran lady I know taking one who firmly believes in it, and what gets me is most do not realize what are actually in them. Why should I believe that something which only has 1 part per million in it of any actual solution or medicine is going to work? I thought it was a scam even years and years ago.
Homeopathic remedies are made by taking an ingredient, such as arsenic, and diluting it down so far that there is not a single molecule left in the dose that you get. The ingredients are selected on the basis of like cures like, so that a substance that causes sweating at normal doses, for example, would be used to treat sweating.
Many people confuse homeopathy with herbalism and do not realise just how far homeopathic remedies are diluted. The typical dilution is called "30C": this means that the original substance has been diluted by 1 drop in 100, 30 times. On the Society of Homeopaths site, in their "What is homeopathy?" section, they say that "30C contains less than 1 part per million of the original substance."
This is an understatement: a 30C homeopathic preparation is a dilution of 1 in 10030, or rather 1 in 1060, which means a 1 followed by 60 zeroes, or - let's be absolutely clear - a dilution of 1 in 1,000,000,000,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000.
To phrase that in the Society of Homeopaths' terms, we should say: "30C contains less than one part per million million million million million million million million million million of the original substance."
At a homeopathic dilution of 100C, which they sell routinely, and which homeopaths claim is even more powerful than 30C, the treating substance is diluted by more than the total number of atoms in the universe. Homeopathy was invented before we knew what atoms were, or how many there are, or how big they are. It has not changed its belief system in light of this information.


Some Christians don't realize this homeopathic stuff is based in the same life forces teachings too.

The teachings of homeopathy are strongly influenced by eastern philosophy and religion. The view of human nature is consistent with the theories of transcendental meditation and psychic healing.
Spiritual Power
The phenomenon life force is essential in homeopathic theory. Life force is a metaphysic power that permeates the human being and every living creature. This power is manifested as the human aura and is responsible for well-being and health (3). The homeopath Gunvor Ruus writes in the Norwegian nurses' periodical: "When the energy - the life force - gets out of balance, it is manifested in the organism as symptoms. By reason the homeopathic remedies must have a dynamic influence to the life force, so that balance may reestablished" (4). Disease is not viewed as a result of bacteria, virus, poison or environmental factors, but sickness and diseases are considered to be a result of disturbed spiritual balance. George Vithoulkas, author of the book Homeopathy, Medicine for the New Man, writes that it is the "intimate nature" or the "soul" of bacteria and virus that creates disease, that is a dynamic spiritual force (5). For that reason, disease must be treated at a spiritual level, which is the essence of homeopathic therapy. According to homeopathic theory, it is not the chemical substances that cures disease, but the spiritual power called life force. The remedies are prepared to impart spiritual power.

Part of homeopathy they sell is treating "LIKE with LIKE", but it's a mere slogan with no scientific results outside of the placebo outcomes.

These are the two biggest areas I have seen Christians being fooled by. Always test with God's help anything you become involved with. There are areas of danger even in alternative medicine. If you change your diet or seek after herbal remedies pray and look these things up. Avoid anything or anyone that has to do with Eastern Religion, or "Changing or redirecting your life force". I have noticed these things are growing more popular. I know several self-confessing Christians who have visited naturopaths and who use homeopathic medicine. God has recently answered a question regarding finding a naturopath that is not mixed up in the New Age. That is impossible. Naturopathy itself is inherently New Age.

 I've had discussions with Christians telling them I have concerns about both of these things. Many have not been too happy with me. These things are NOT harmless. Mess with any "life forces" you are essentially messing with demons.  Even with acupuncture, I need to explain to a friend, no it is not scientific at all! Even the Jesus is Savior website defends homeopathy.  I know modern medicine has a lot of pitfalls, sometimes you ask who can you trust? But remember the holistic health world has plenty of pits waiting too. Tell me what you think.

Billy Corgan on Alex Jones Advances Global Awakening

Before you read any of this, make sure you read the Global Awakening article if you have not already to put it all into context. Keep in mind, that Alex Jones has marked himself too.  Watch out for those who tell you to adopt a new paradigm shift or passes off this idea that humanity as a whole is going to wake up, it's just another way of saying "achieve a higher consciousness" like the New Agers pass off. The globe is not going to come together to protest tyranny, the Bible tells us the way of salvation is narrow. The world as a whole is not going to come into truth, or wake up to Satan's plans, the Bible makes that clear. 

Corgan last year talked about the AWAKENING.

Here is the description on INFO-WARS for the latest video.

Corgan comments extensively on Alex Jones’ unique position at the tip of the spear of resistance, piercing through the mainstream media’s trance-like shroud which veils reality from the masses while the Wizard of Oz-like controllers operate behind the curtain to manipulate our society and steer our consciousness. In a conversation that spanned nearly an hour during the iconic alternative rocker’s surprise visit to the Infowars studio, Billy Corgan urges a more spiritual approach to the truth movement that seeks to expose the hardening global tyranny. Instead, that system could be overwhelmed and defeated if only average people would recognize their stake in waking up and connecting with the streaming continuity of humanity. It is our job to reach those people. Without a doubt, Corgan’s deep and frank conversation is of the utmost importance to everyone who values their future and wants to empower individuals around the world. If we face the challenge, we can embrace a total paradigm shift; otherwise humanity faces capture by a mesmerizing and ultimately empty illusory system where people are reduced to mere spectators. 
  

Some may ask who cares about Billy Corgan? He was famous in the early 1990s, for a band named Smashing Pumpkins. I was familiar with the music, and listened to some during during my non-believer days. He is as "marked" as the rest of them. Who knows if he is one of the controlled from childhood celebrities but the markings are definitely there. Here is an earlier photo of him before he shaved his head.



Notice the colors he is wearing in the video, red, black and blue, strange combination right? They will have some truths here like telling you about the right-left deception. He is right about the average American believing the basics of the new world order are true. What they call "escaping" the Matrix", means basically "becoming new world order aware". The Matrix movie was used for huge deception--both pills are poison and their world presented that Morpheus praised was basically Satan's with "plugged in" slaves. Hey I've talked about this enough on this blog. He talks about 10-20 million people searching for new information because something gets exposed. Could there be more people becoming new world order aware? Sure with the Internet, there is free information, they know people are going to be finding things out that the "thinkers" are seeing through the "stage show" so to speak, but how many of the "thinkers" could even conceive without the Holy Spirit's help, of the multi-layers of deception? They are ready for you. They are taking so many groups to the SAME EXACT place it is awe-inspiring. Bible Christians are truly the ones who will be standing with God apart from the rest.

How many will realize this show itself carries deception? Hey I am not saying I know everything either, I know about my own moments of confusion and prayer and trying to figure things out, but with Alex Jones, many of us can see the deception right there for the asking. Many have exposed his pro-Catholic leanings and asked why he has Jesuits and Knights of Malta right on his show but Alex Jones has more deceptions ready then those. 

2 Thess 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

He is right about "those who do not want to know". There are many who do not love truth. He is right "it is a game" He speaks of the time when "all the pieces get knocked off the board" with something cataclysmic. He speaks of things like it is what the populace does in that moment. Actually most times in history the populace has been managed from above. The power elite manage the revolutions, and do not forget this. Of course there are those who do lie, the PR men, and the rest.

Hand signal at 5:57? 12:13? with Alex Jones, 17:26 with Corgan

One sad part of the conversation where they say of the masses: "We aren't going to get them on board with facts". Hey people will tell you what they are about. Alex Jones at the 9:17 mark mentions the changes to come naming Ghandi and Jesus together. This is typical one world religion stuff.

"If they don't want this freedom then we are going down!" Billy Corgan says to Alex Jones, "I think you have been at the tip of the spear for a long time"  That is kind of an odd statement, wonder what that really means. It sounds like it's from the occult, does this have to do with the "spear of destiny?"  Corgan says one answer is to bring in people with spiritual and historical perspectives. The same solution that the United Nations, Pope and URI are all joined up with. They add that "we are not the first people who have faced this", and they bring up people who have lived under the Soviet system who then had to worry about about talking about the government too loudly, days that have come to America. He asks why people are so willing to follow orders that make no sense such as TSA agents searching him, who know he is not a terrorist since he is a famous musician.

Corgan then says bring in people from the Catholic church, Buddhists, Native American elders to ask "How do you guys view this?" His response is to bring in more of that one world religion spirituality. The new world order and growing tyranny in America haven't concerned any of those groups. The Catholic church is joined at the hip and a front-runner. The Native Americans who are not Christians remain stuck in false religion. His message is bring in the "enlightened thinkers", well what are the majority of enlightened thinkers selling us now? Basically Corgan and Alex Jones together are promoting New Age thinking, "ascended masters" type teaching-Alice Bailey style so the enlightened can supposedly "save the world".

It's just more lies, more of the GLOBAL AWAKENING message being pushed in many alternative media circles. I decided to hone in on this as one more example to help people understand what I was warning about in the global awakening article. There has been an increase in this message all over the place.

Pope Francis Calls for All Religions To Unite

Warning Catholic video..




Pope urges religions, those with no church to ally for justice

   I found this to be of interest.
Crespo, global support coordinator for the United Religions Initiative, said she had worked directly with Bergoglio on interfaith efforts. He hosted a meeting of Crespo's group, which fosters interfaith cooperation, at the Bueno Aires Metropolitan Cathedral. "He is so open and welcoming and humble at the same time," she said.


Bay Area Catholics May Find the New Pope a Mixed Bag 
“Maria Crespo, an Argentine Catholic visiting San Francisco, said Cardinal Bergoglio supports women in traditional roles. “Argentina is quite a traditional country so there has not been much controversy about women’s roles that I can remember,” she said. “But he has given women positions of responsibility,” she said. Crespo, global support coordinator for the United Religions Initiative, said she had worked directly with Bergoglio on interfaith efforts. He hosted a meeting of Crespo’s group, which fosters interfaith cooperation, at the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Cathedral. “He is so open and welcoming and humble at the same time,” she said.”
The Parliament of the World’s Religion’s was happy about Pope Francis's election too.


 


Rev 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

Obama in Israel

Obama tells Israel: "Peace is the only path to true security"

"Speaking before a lively and receptive crowd of 600 Israeli students, President Obama today urged the youth of Israel to accept "the realization of an independent and viable Palestine." A two-state solution, the president suggested, is the only viable path forward for Israel, given the political and technological changes underway. "Peace is necessary. I believe that," Mr. Obama said, speaking at the Jerusalem International Convention Center on his second day in Israel. "I believe that peace is the only path to true security. You have the opportunity to be the generation that permanently secures the Zionist dream, or you can face a growing challenge to its future."  

I wonder if there will be any peace treaties forthcoming? There is that certain 7 year one they are always on the outlook for. By the way, people telling you Obama is the antichrist, and memes of Obama as Satan in the Bible TV show, are sheer manipulation IMO, to point away from the real antichrist and add to the confusion and set up for deception.



1 Thess 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

You think some of the staunch Christian Zionists would wonder why their hero Netanyahu is now being so buddy-buddy with Obama, who supposedly is one of their liberal "enemies"? Why wouldn't they? They never ask any questions as to why he is so willing to make deals with the Pope either. They all serve the same master. Remember Netanyahu in his constant cries for war, is betraying Israel as well.
 
Obama and Netanyahu show unusual solidarity

Notice the handshake on the top picture?


 


In my opinion this is about future war plans with Iran. The NWO desires war with Iran, it's been in the planning stages for a long time. They are cooking up deception like the world has never seen before. I have to admit, keeping track of everything is getting tougher and tougher. This article may be a simple one, but I am taking a look at what is going on as well and still asking questions.

The Middle East as I have written here has been destabilized by plan.  Even take a look at what is happening in Syria.  Has that all been coincidence?



Link for the above article.

We know the war on Iraq was started on lies, those infamous weapons of mass destruction that just didn't exist. Perhaps they want to start WWIII as the world economies start tumbling like dominoes, and they can bring their "order out of chaos" luciferian "solutions"? The United States is in trillions dollars in debt, and not in the place to be in another war, but the war mongers keep marching on.

Any of you ever wonder about this? How could Iran nuke Israel without taking Palestinian areas out? We have heard the message for years and years about how Iran is a "danger" to Israel, and yes there is problems there I admit, but consider the map of Israel for a minute. I started wondering about this when I read a secular book on Israel and the author was discussing the various borders, check points and I realized the place wasn't  divided into a clear divided line anymore, and that the Palestinian and Israeli areas were all mixed up together.



Obama speaks of the two-state solution and more peace, while the Middle East enters into more chaos.


See Fanatic for Jesus's article too:

What is Happening in Cyprus?

Have you been paying attention to what is happening in Cyprus?



Some believe this is a beta test for what they could be planning for here.

I do as well.

Mass Panic In Cyprus: The Banks Are Collapsing And ATMs Are Running Out Of Money

The basic gist is that they told people they would be "taxing" seizing, "stealing", 10% of every bank account, to "save" their banks.  Well, you can see what the result is. The beta test could be for them seeing what they can away with on a small scale. They do not care about your bank account, or retirement fund, everything is open game for the global elite and their loot-a-thon. Already many are asking if the banks will start failing across the EU, and if there will be more bank runs.

After The Banksters Steal Money From Bank Accounts In Cyprus They Will Start Doing It EVERYWHERE

Riches fade, in this world, one can have millions of dollars, but depending on that is building your life on sand. One advantage of being poor and a nearly empty bank account is not worrying about what will fly so easily away. Put that trust in God instead.

 Proverbs 23:4-5 4 Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.

5 Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.

The Latest with Jack Schaap

Jack Schaap's Mormon Style Brainwashing Of His Victim

Good Soldier is right about how the whole "eternal marriage" thing that Schaap used to groom his victim comes right out of Mormonism and their teachings regarding celestial marriage. One thing to remember about Mormonism is it's connections to freemasonry, this can have one ponder where Schaap picked this all up. Schaap has exposed what are basically Mormon beliefs about marriage in his book, "Divine Intimacy":

 

Here is a website where they expose snippets of that book, it is beyond blasphemous. Think occult sex magic stuff married to false Christianity that are evil to the core.  Some of this even came up when I wrote the first article on Jack Schaap:
"Jack Schaap is married to Jack Hyles daughter, Cindy. Here Jack Hyles discusses their marriage. This is also where I took the snippet below from. One can see the bit of weirdness right here for themselves, husband as "high priest"? Hmm like the Mormons? Notice how her refers to his daughter's body as the "holy of holies", which is blasphemous. This is where all that patriarchy stuff and purity balls is taking us, you see. "
With Jack Schaap, the picture has gotten even darker:

Using false religion to deceive his victim...

This is how a sociopathic predator operates to deceive a young girl, luring and seducing her and telling her that the relationship is "blessed". This is how some of the Catholic clergy sex abusers operated deceiving their victims with religion. Schaap is of the same ilk.

The Chicago Tribune published the court papers for Jack Schaap's sentencing memorandum and court case.Warning--there is sexual and other content. Some disturbing and scary things stand out, all the excuse making, the fact that many deceived stand by this man, and the horrific letters where he speaks of God, to lure her in and the fact the church told them to leave for the sake of "their safety" even after firing Schaap. I of course think they should have run for the hills but it was interesting how they were told to leave. The courts ask for him to be sentenced to ten years.

Rotten fruit from a rotten tree.

Luke 6:43 For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

Keep in mind Jack Hyles CHOSE Jack Schaaps to be his successor.

I put this video up with the caveat I do not support this worldly TV show and want to include a language warning, but for decades problems from First Baptist of Hammond have displayed themselves. Watch this reading between the lines, even if this guy is WRONG or LYING about what having happened between HYLES and his wife, the weird over-involvement of their pastor in their lives stands out. He looks sincere to me but think about the amount of control that seems to have been used on the church members with the managing of their schedules. Even in his supposed response in taking to the basement for 12 years seems to be something a cult victim would be a part of, rather then a man who is leading his own responsible life. Victims or troubled people like this do not come up about of nowhere. Something happened.  The aggrieved husband even speaks of MIND CONTROL.

 

All I have to do is watch Hyles speak to feel uneasy and know something was very wrong in that church a very long time ago.

Franklin Graham and other False Evangelicals Support Universal Background Checks

 
Just wait, one day, they will be supporting RFID chips for everyone and telling them, that they must take one for the sake of safety and security and it too is reasonable and responsible! Here you see them supporting Obama's universal background checks. It seems they want to help in the registration efforts to do away with the second amendment, this is more proof they are false Christians. What about that Richard Land guy? There are all those supposed conservatives in SBC and they give that guy a pass on every liberal agenda there is.

They speak like Democrats, who ignore the basic fact that criminals will not care about registering or having their background checked, they'll just get a gun off the black market. Conservative and liberal is merging together, the terms meaning less and less as the NWO in all its branches including the false religious ones merges together for tyranny.

Franklin Graham Backs Universal Background Checks
Rev. Franklin Graham and other leading evangelical figures are publicly backing efforts to require background checks for all gun purchases, providing a shot in the arm to stalled congressional efforts to enact elements of President Barack Obama’s gun control plan. 
 Graham, the son of evangelist Billy Graham and the president of Christian relief organization Samaritan’s Purse, and Dr. Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission told TIME they have agreed to back universal background check legislation put forward by the administration in the wake of last year’s shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.  
“As ministers, we agreed together that we could stand on a united front for universal background checks,” Graham told TIME, noting he had many conversations with civil rights leader Rev. Amos Brown on the subject. “We think that’s reasonable and responsible.”
Don't you just hate it when these guys contradict themselves all the time?

Franklin Graham: Obama won because ‘we’ve turned our back on God’

Yeah that's why he wants to help Obama out now with the gun grabbing.

The Problem With Drones





What is this about all these drones? My first contact with seeing drones was watching this documentary where a soldier sat in a remote control building, blowing up people with a drone, that was thousands of miles away in the Middle East.  Using cameras and more, they would bomb people, cars and other places. What got me is this definitely changed the formula of war, turning it into a video game of sorts as the soldier remained "safe" and under no threat thousands of miles away.

Remember when drones were seen only in science fiction movies? Remember the days when the left made a nod to civil liberties? Both left and right are a lie as I have repeated over and over, both are being used to destroy freedom and institute the tyranny of the NWO. The majority of the left accepts and defends everything Obama does, and the right is asleep with their own support of the police state.

This cartoon says it all, remember they no longer just plan to use these things just in foreign wars which is bad enough as innocent bystanders and children get killed but many are even calling for the armed use of drones to help law enforcement in the USA. Drones are already being used for surveillance purposes. Say goodbye to the right to jury by trial, especially with the passage of NDAA and the indefinite detention of American citizens. Notice how all these things are being put together like puzzle pieces? What happens when the list of who is on the terrorist group grows longer and longer, where they include even peace-loving Christian and other people who happen to believe differently?


Bill Gates says that he wishes that Obama had more power. See any celebrities speaking out for American freedom? Nope. They really do sell their souls, even literally for their fame and money. The sham called the war on terror, now has Americans accepting what would have been unacceptable 20 years ago even, drones used on US soil and against US citizens. What is forgotten in the world on terror, and the whole "let's give up all our freedoms for the sake of security camp" is that these drones, in foreign countries do kill many innocent civilians. They can take out entire apartment buildings, and have killed children. Remember how you have heard about cops and SWAT teams busting into the wrong house, just wait til they use a drone on people who are innocent of any wrong doing in America? Think it won't happen? They make errors now getting the wrong address.

It is scary to watch Americans defend this stuff, I've had some do so with me. This is a topic that will show you object spiritual blindness in it's most hideous details, as you watch one of your fellow indoctrinated citizens go on about "winning the war on terror" as more terror comes to rest right here in America. Imagine a life where they can send a drone anywhere, and anyplace, anyone who has been through war, understands the fear and trepidation, as they see the planes flying above, ready to bomb, but this time they will be far more silent. The duped American citizens actually have been brainwashed to think that it's better to do away with due process and freedom to "win" the war on terror. Another battle with a concept, doomed for failure and used from the start to deceive. They do not seem to mind that America has been named a "battlefield" and are unable to connect the dots on how NDAA plays a part in this or why a certain government agency is buying up weaponry and bullets like gangbusters.

The only true freedom is in Jesus Christ, the way of this evil world is to always depart from freedom and goodness.  America benefited from a very short period of freedom and prosperity which is coming to a close more day by day. Most Americans do not realize how unique having such a peaceful prosperous time is, in the annals of history. This may be why some seem unable to face reality and decide to choose to live in a bubble of denial.

The days of the Patriot Act and extremely wicked arguments excusing torture and waterboarding almost seem quaint compared to the freedoms that Obama has continued in destroying.  Every day, there is a step forward towards tyranny. Even since I started this blog three years ago, and warned about where things are going it has grown worse and worse. There has been major changes within a few years. Can you imagine Americans being okay with military drones in their skies, 30 years ago?

See all the dance steps here with Holder? This does not mean I am a supporter of Rand Paul either, but at least he is asking him a few hard questions.




Think about this, no trial, no jury, no court of law, no recourse, no defense, they just send the drone after you. Too many protesters even peaceful ones, all they have to do is get out the drone to scatter the crowds. I mean look at Holder above quibbling about some guy sitting in a cafe not putting anyone in imminent danger, that says it all. Basically saying they can kill an American citizen on US soil.

Barack Obama 'has authority to use drone strikes to kill Americans on US soil'

Eric Holder argued that using lethal military force against an American in his home country would be legal and justified in an "extraordinary circumstance" comparable to the September 11 terrorist attacks.
 "The president could conceivably have no choice but to authorise the military to use such force if necessary to protect the homeland," Mr Holder said.
 His statement was described as "more than frightening" by Senator Rand Paul, a Republican from Kentucky, who had demanded to know the Obama administration's position on the subject.
 "It is an affront the constitutional due process rights of all Americans," said Mr Paul, a 50-year-old favourite of the anti-government Tea Party movement, who is expected to run for president in 2016.
Mr Holder wrote to Mr Paul after the senator threatened to block the appointment of John Brennan as the director of the CIA unless he received answers to a series of questions on its activities.
One part of spiritual blindness is refusing to face what is going on with honesty. The scoffers and mockers, will close their ears and eyes, and not confront that which is evil. This does not mean returning evil for evil but even just warning and speaking out.

Warren, Piper and Others Welcome the New Pope

Many in the false preacher line are gung-ho obviously about the new Pope.

Warren: This isn't a surprise of course. Fasting and prayer for the harlot's Cardinals, and I used to have Christians who claimed to me that Rick Warren stood against the false Catholic church. I suppose the "not everything is different is demonic line" is supposed to lead people to accept Catholicism. Piers Morgan as far as I know is an extreme liberal who promoted gun control so much it made for protests webwide.


John Piper needs to do a reread of the book of Revelation to find out what actually happens. Reforming of the Catholic church, you got to be kidding me!


The culture war folks get their message in too.




Isn't that New World stuff odd? Kind of like just add ORDER and you have NEW WORLD ORDER.

To be expected:


For the Orthodox who post comments on my blog insisting that the Orthodox church sees the Pope as a false leader:


The New Pope



Cardinals Pick Bergoglio, Who Will Be Pope Francis
VATICAN CITY — With a puff of white smoke from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel and to the cheers of thousands of rain-soaked faithful, a gathering of Catholic cardinals picked a new pope from among their midst on Wednesday — choosing the cardinal from Argentina, the first South American to lead the church. 
  The new pope, Jorge Mario Bergoglio (pronounced Ber-GOAL-io), will be called Francis, the 266th pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church. He is also the first non-European pope in more than 1,200 years and the first member of the Jesuit order to lead the church. 
In choosing Francis, 76, who had been the archbishop of Buenos Aires, the cardinals sent a powerful message that the future of the church lies in the global south, home to the bulk of the world’s Catholics. “I would like to thank you for your embrace,” the new pope, dressed in white, said from the white balcony on St. Peter’s Basilica as thousands cheered joyously below. “My brother cardinals have chosen one who is from far away, but here I am.”


Yes, as one of my commenters posted that is an interesting handshake.

If anyone knows Argentine history, and about the dictatorship they had there, with thousands murdered, already there has been some controversy regarding this new Pope:

Pope Francis I: Bergoglio Has Ties To A Dark Period For The Catholic Church
Francis I along with the whole Argentine Catholic Church have faced criticism for their silence or complicity during the post-1976 military dictatorship — a failure for which the Church apologized in 2012. 
Known as the Dirty War, this period saw a brutal battle between the ruling military elite and leftist guerrilla fighters, in which up to 30,000 Argentinians were “disappeared” and others were raped or killed. 
Argentine journalist Horacio Verbitsky chronicled how the Church and Bergoglio were involved in this dark era. As described by Hugh O’Shaughnessy of The Guardian in 2011: 
  [Verbitsky] recounts how the Argentine navy with the connivance of Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, now the Jesuit archbishop of Buenos Aires, hid from a visiting delegation of the Inter-American Human Rights Commission the dictatorship’s political prisoners. Bergoglio was hiding them in nothing less than his holiday home in an island called El Silencio in the River Plate. The most shaming thing for the church is that in such circumstances Bergoglio’s name was allowed to go forward in the ballot to chose the successor of John Paul II. What scandal would not have ensued if the first pope ever to be elected from the continent of America had been revealed as an accessory to murder and false imprisonment. 
Bergoglio contended to writer Sergio Rubin that he hid these people to keep them from the violent military junta, not the Human Rights Commission — even as his Jesuit order and Church leaders publicly endorsed the dictatorship.
Well we know the Roman Catholic church always supports tyranny around the world.

One interesting fact about Argentina is as recently as 2001, they had a complete economic collapse with bank runs, riots and more. One blog which is focused on prepper survivalism, is actually written by an Argentine who went through this. and warns people it's coming to America.

The theory that they would choose a non European pans out. However this is the first Jesuit ever, I am not sure what this means but given that Jesuits usually swear allegiance to the Pope,this is a new development.The choosing of the name Francis, could be meant to put a benevolent face on Rome since so many respect St. Francis of Assisi and this new Pope mentioned St. Francis of Assisi, but then there was a Saint Francis Xavier who was a Jesuit as well.

 The new pope is pleasant faced with a ready smile, far less austere then Bendict, he may even remind some older folks of Pope John Paul 1 who lasted only a month in the papacy but don't let that fool you.  One odd thing is he has been reported to have a lung removed due to infection as a teenager.  The news is already emphasizing how "humble" he is, in taking the bus, making his own meals and living in an apartment instead of the mansions provided.  One other emphasized matter is his concern for the poor, considering Rome's globalist plans to "redistribute the wealth" this may be to advance their focus on the inequality between rich and poor around the globe.  Ever heard of the black Pope, the Superior General of the Jesuits who is said to hold the real power in the shadows? Is this a transferring of this "power" to the so called "white" Pope?

In other news Tom Horn bends over backwards to shoehorn the Petrus Romanus prophecy. Given that the majority of elected Popes in history prior to Polish Pope John Paul II and German Pope Benedict, were Italians, getting excited over Bergoglio for having Italian ancestry is a bit silly. Perhaps it is a general term, for the "last Pope" but then they use these prophecies from the start for confusion.
He absolutely NAILED the prophecy! Jorge Mario Bergoglio is Italian (Roman) and a Jesuit. This is a VERY important aspect of our prediction in our book because we said the name "Petrus Romanus" from the prophecy "implies this pope will reaffirm the authority of the Roman Pontiff over the Church and will emphasize the supremacy of the Roman Catholic Faith and the Roman Catholic Church above all other religions and denominations, and its authority over all Christians and all peoples of the world" (Petrus Romanus pgs 437-438)
The date is of interest, 3-13-13, the day that he was elected and the time they announced him as the new Pope and had him come out to greet people was 8:13 pm in Rome.

Will Cardinal Peter Turkson Be the Next Pope?



[cite for picture above]

I'll put this article up with the caveat that on the last election I thought they were going to elect Cardinal Arinze and I called that wrong on a few message boards, so I could be wrong here too.

There does seem to be some evidence that they desire to match their false Malachy Prophecies to whoever is selected. The "last Pope" is supposed to be named "Peter" or have some references to "Peter the Roman".

I found this article to be of interest:

Top candidate to be next Pope has ties to creation of global economic system


Cardinal Turkson has said that "if God would wish to see a black man also as pope, thanks be to God". The Catholic Church chronicler Rocco Palmo called Turkson the lone Scripture scholar in the Pope's "Senate" and believes that his status as a potential "papabile " has been elevated due to his appointment as spokesman for Second Synod for Africa in 2009.
In response to the global economic crisis started in 2008, Cardinal Turkson together with bishop Mario Toso elaborated a proposal to reform the international financial system by creating a Global Public Authority and a Global Bank that consider the interest of all developing countries. The document of 40 pages was officially presented in October 2011 and criticizes the actual structure of International Monetary Fund and other institutions. - Project Avalon

For those who are long time readers of this blog, hopefully you saw these articles, if you have not read them, please do so. They are very relevant to today's recent happenings.

The Vatican Wants World Government #1: Setting Up For the Beast

The Vatican Wants World Government #2: Redistribution of the World's Wealth

Breaking News: Vatican Calls for Central World Bank

It seems to me they very well could pick the man, who will help bring the world system even far closer together. If one even thinks about how they are "integrating the gap" in Africa with those 35 nations having troops send to them, that would make even more sense.

 Cardinal Peter Turkson has called for a global world bank.

"In October 2011 Cardinal Turkson called for the establishment of a “global public authority” and a “central world bank” to rule over financial institutions that have become outdated and often ineffective in dealing fairly with crises. The document, Towards Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of a Global Public Authority was very specific, calling for taxation measures on financial transactions. It notes that “The economic and financial crisis which the world is going through calls everyone, individuals and peoples, to examine in depth the principles and the cultural and moral values at the basis of social coexistence,” it said. The document condemned what it called “the idolatry of the market” as well as a “neo-liberal thinking” that it said looked exclusively at technical solutions to economic problems. “In fact, the crisis has revealed behaviours like selfishness, collective greed and hoarding of goods on a great scale,” it said, adding that world economics needed an “ethic of solidarity” among rich and poor nations"
 Don't forget paragraph 67 of Caritas in Veritate. written by Pope Benedict..

“In the face of the unrelenting growth of global interdependence, there is a strongly felt need, even in the midst of a global recession, for a reform of the United Nations Organization, and likewise of economic institutions and international finance, so that the concept of the family of nations can acquire real teeth. … for all this, there is urgent need of a true world political authority, as my predecessor Blessed John XXIII indicated some years ago. …They also require the construction of a social order that at last conforms to the moral order, to the interconnection between moral and social spheres, and to the link between politics and the economic and civil spheres, as envisaged by the Charter of the United Nations.” (Italics in original.)" 

The Vatican has not kept it secret for their plan in helping to form and/or develop the luciferian new world order at all, it's right out there, directly written, for anyone to read.

I went to go read this doctument: "TOWARDS REFORMING THE INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL AND MONETARY SYSTEMS IN THE CONTEXT OF GLOBAL PUBLIC AUTHORITY"

The global collapse, I always have believed was planned, and it will be made USE of, if you get what I mean...

"The economic and financial crisis which the world is going through calls everyone, individuals and peoples, to examine in depth the principles and the cultural and moral values at the basis of social coexistence. What is more, the crisis engages private actors and competent public authorities on the national, regional and international level in serious reflection on both causes and solutions of a political, economic and technical nature.
In this perspective, as Benedict XVI teaches, the crisis “obliges us to re-plan our journey, to set ourselves new rules and to discover new forms of commitment, to build on positive experiences and to reject negative ones. The crisis thus becomes an opportunity for discernment, in which to shape a new vision for the future. In this spirit, with confidence rather than resignation, it is appropriate to address the difficulties of the present time.”

I know it is long but they speak of the "common good" and reforming the entire world's economic system. Remember the Vatican works with the G20 and the global elites in implementing these plans.


From the document, I found this line too. Besides the horrific opposite meaning given to the warnings of the Tower of Babel right above it, this one stood out to me.

Think about this one...
In a world on its way to rapid globalization, the reference to a world Authority becomes the only horizon compatible with the new realities of our time and the needs of humankind. However, it should not be forgotten that this development, given wounded human nature, will not come about without anguish and suffering.

Christians will know how completely evil this all is. Whoever they choose as their new Pope, they will proceed with those plans. Revelation 13 specifically makes it clear we will be under a global system of luciferian power and control and the Bible has warned us of what is coming.

An Answer to an Ancient Question


False Bibles Bring Deception

Found here

One can tell directly that false theology is advanced via false bible versions. When I was a new Christian I compared a few Bibles, this is just one example. The below graphic changes, showing different verses that have been altered and changed between bibles.




Many will claim that the KJV is too hard to read, I always found the newer versions harder to read, that is a false claim to lead people to false deceiving bibles.

The Queen's Nurse

Found online elsewhere, I went to go see if it was real, it checked out.

Here, Here

and

Here

So the nurse is wearing her masonic and pentagram belt right for the viewing. The colors they are wearing have an occult meaning as well in my opinion.

Remember this story? That nurse worked at that hospital.

The Daughters: Protestant Churches #3: False Sacraments, Rituals and Rites

I hate to post the above picture, it is blasphemous but I am doing so to show basically a pictorial of sacraments. Notice the priest is the middle-man between man and God. Jesus is to be our high priest, not clergy. This is the main error of sacraments after all. Clergy as the MIDDLEMAN.

Jeremiah 17:5, “Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.” 

Revelation 2:6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.




 Sacraments are loathsome. Grace is not handed to men by other men via rituals and rites. There is no holy power in rituals, rites, and reciting scripts, Satan's workers depend on these things of course. Rituals are dead. Ceremonies mean nothing. Even lesser rituals in the Roman Catholic church, where they use water and salt to consecrate a new church, have nothing to do with God's Word and everything do with false religion.


Some of the rituals can get strange:


What does this have to do with the gospel? NOTHING.

This is an extreme example of the false traditions of men.

Sadly the Daughters cling to as many false rituals, rites and sacraments as well. Lets make a list, infant baptism, confirmation, confessions, blessing of animals, consecrations, ordinations, scripted prayers, Advent, Lent, Ash Wednesday, special dress for the clergy, and far more.


Romans 1:16

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also

2 Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

"Ye must be born again", you can go through sacraments, rituals and rites and be lost. They mean nothing unless you know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and if you know Jesus, you want nothing to do with them! I was on the way to hell after a thousand communions, being marked by ashes, dozens of confessions, hundreds of recitation of creeds, an infant baptist, and a confirmation. It is only via God's grace I am a Christian today. These things meant nothing because I never had been born again, I did not know Jesus. I know a false "jesus" in the Eucharist and nothing else.  This applies to ALL churches not just Catholics and the Orthodox, so the Daughter Protestants putting their own children and themselves on the ritual assembly line are just as in bad shape spiritually. Those who teach that one becomes born again via rituals such as in baptismal regeneration is a liar. Those who teach God's grace is handed over via clergy lie as well. The gospel is the power of God, NOT sacraments.



An infant baptism just makes a baby wet, it does not guarantee them heaven once they are older.
A bishop or clergy member slapping a teen at a confirmation claiming that his infant baptism automatically made him a Christian, that means nothing either. The poor teen is now confused until he meets a Christian who witnesses the true gospel to him. Baptism was to be an ordinance for a newly saved adult believer to show to others, not saving or granting grace within itself. False churches teach sacraments save, that sacraments are channels of God's grace. The Lord's Supper was about remembering Jesus, an actual dinner, not a scripted ritual of handing out wafers said to be "god" themselves!

Does the book of Acts speak of special rituals and words or prayers or any of this? Do you see any of the apostles reciting scripted prayers or breaking out the altars or enforcing specific ceremonies? No, you will not see it anywhere! If anything a honest reading of the book of Acts calls out the false traditions and sacraments do NOT exist in the book of Acts.

Acts 2: 46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,

Some may say these are strong statements but sacraments represent assembly line religion without any real relationship with God. Line up, literally to get your supposedly transubstantiated wafer, or to have scripted words read from a book over you, or repeat phrases handed to you on a xerox, and you can see how fast and how quick it all falls flat especially if you have experienced sincere prayers or the Holy Spirit among two or three more gathered together.

There is a reason born again Christians FLEE the dead ceremonial churches. Have you ever wondered why just weeks after I left the Catholic church after being saved, that I knew NOT to go check out the United Methodists or the Lutherans? How did I know? The only born again Christian in my social circles was one lady hundreds of miles away. I knew via the Holy Spirit's direction. There was no quibbling or mulling over it. Why would I seek after a watered down Mass elsewhere or more dead religious rituals after coming to know Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior knowing He made the ultimate and only sacrifice and the proscribed dance steps of the over-dressed clergy meant nothing to me?

Hebrews 6:10 In whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin you have taken no pleasure. 

Perhaps some of you like me were born again and left out of a false daughter Protestant church, the Catholic church or another liturgical church. Remember the scripts? Remember the mind-numbing parade of the church calendar? Remember the dull, the boring, rote and repetitive? I used to feel guilty I found the Mass so boring. I had it memorized by the time I was a teen. No one should expect worship to be entertainment like the mega-churches have made it, but there is a point where repetitiveness is insanity, where it leads to stale creeds, deadened minds and hearts. This is purposeful as Satan leads to people to non-interest in God, with false sacraments and droning rituals. Why was there a race for the door at the end of every Mass?  People were bored and wanted to get home! Watching paint dry is more interesting but many of course believe that it is their duty to go to Mass or liturgical services. This is why many of these churches teach that missing church is a sin, to guilt the people into going. If you ever have been in a ritual based church, this verse has personal meaning for you.

Matt 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoreth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men."

Sadly there are good and sincere people trapped in the false church system believing their main duty is to keep praying scripted prayers and receiving these rituals and rites and these "appeasements" of God. They have been falsely led to be dependent on clergy who obscure God's Word. This is a tragedy to me and I've cried over this matter. There are people I care about stuck in false churches, keeping up these walls between them and God. Even for the few that manage to be born again and love God, they are kept from God's full truth. Even if a Protestant Daughter church makes a nod towards some salvation via grace, the very fact that rituals and works are part of the landscape is a spiritual distraction.

The Catholic church kept telling me that inanimate piece of white wafer was God. Today I know better, I know God is anything but boring! I know that knowing God in His Word, there is something always new to discover almost daily, almost something wonderful to share with God and to pray to Him using my own words in all sincerity rather then reciting creeds over and over to the point the words lost meaning.

Years ago, I got very ill in the hospital, and managed to come out but my health was on a severe downward trajectory still and went to a priest to get what is called "The Anointing of the Sick". I remember standing there, after my days of praying to God in the hospital, that is how sick I was. I was not saved yet but on my way to it.  I had a bible with me, and hearing the priest who was a well intentioned guy but deceived, rambled off the scripted words to me, I thought, "Something is wrong with this."

I think I had my first inkling when I had left the UU church after 12-13 years in it and went back to what I knew back then which was the Catholic church. I admitted to the priest, that when I was confirmed at the age of 13, that I was really an atheist.  It was a sin, {I lied} and I was thirteen years old, and my parents were so upset when I told them my true religious beliefs or then lack there of, and the priests and nuns didn't listen either when I said...."You know, I don't really believe in this". I was left on the confirmation roster. My sponsor was even a nun who was a family friend. I was one of those eager to please kids. Trying to insist on telling all those around me that I was an atheist and rejected what I thought was Christianity was not something I had the bravery to do until I was around 16-17 years old. In fact, I remember telling my best friend, "This is such a charade", ten minutes before we all lined up to march into the church. I am sure there are young Baptist teens out there who may answer an "altar call" or say they are saved to please Mom and Dad so trying to be fair here but then as I sat there telling the priest this, the priest actually told me, "You cant get confirmed again and it still 'took'". I told him that sounded very odd. It made no sense. He told me, "We can't confirm you again."

The worse thing about sacraments isn't the dry cold rituals, or the fact that ritual is put above reality but that sacraments make the clergy the center of everything. They form a wall between you and God. And this applies to all the Protestant daughters who have retained infant baptist, communion or the Eucharist except they don't take the real presence teachings as far as Rome, teen confirmation, confession to clergy in some cases and other false traditions. As the only ones able 'supposedly' to commence the sacraments, the ritual makers-the clergy, are the ones who tell their congregations that "god" is for them to hand out literally. While I disagree with Jack Chick on some things when he wrote the tract "The Death Cookie" he definitely hit some truth here:



So the priests of Rome fulfill all of this and the clergy of the Prostant daughters all center on these things to a certain extent, they put their congregants in the place where they are told they MUST....

Receive "christ" from THEIR hands...when they get communion.

Receive the "holy spirit" from THEIR HANDS...when they get confirmation.

Become "born again" or "become a Christian" when they get infant baptism.

Receive "forgiveness" from confessing to THEM

The ritual makers have to make themselves indispensable, job security and all that....


How many Catholics, Orthodox, liturgicals and daughter Protestants believe that they are earning their salvation or partially earning their salvation in the churches that make a nod to salvation via grace because of their church membership, participation in religious rituals and ingesting sacraments? Why do all these churches teach these sacraments are necessary to a certain extent?

Hebrews 10:8 After saying above, “SACRIFICES AND OFFERINGS AND WHOLE BURNT OFFERINGS AND sacrifices FOR SIN YOU HAVE NOT DESIRED, NOR HAVE YOU TAKEN PLEASURE in them” (which are offered according to the Law),9then He said, “BEHOLD, I HAVE COME TO DO YOUR WILL.” He takes away the first in order to establish the second.10By this will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

11Every priest stands daily ministering and offering time after time the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins;12but He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD,13waiting from that time onward UNTIL HIS ENEMIES BE MADE A FOOTSTOOL FOR HIS FEET.14For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified.15And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us; for after saying,



The thing that is the worse about this, is they are basically teach young people, that faith in Christ is not what brings the Holy Spirit to indwell in a person but that the Holy Spirit is like the wafer, for the clergy to "pass" out at THEIR WHIM. Even the bishop or priest supposedly passes out "god" literally in teen confirmation rituals. It obliterates true salvation via faith, and the fact that being born again has to do with belief, not special rituals. Jesus Himself spoke of those who believeth on Him.

John 14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.

12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

 Some man following God's direction in the BIble to lay hands on a person in the Bible to sincerely pray is far different then these Catholic clergy believing they can "dole" god out like potato chips {oops wafers} This mentality is present even in this false sacrament. god is for them to "pass" out. In fact, the very concept of communion is idolatrous given that ordinary people can't "confect" or "transubstantiate" the wafer.

Sacraments are seen as the average person's main access to God, which of course only comes through clergy, which are tied to one of the biggest lies of Rome. The Daughter Protestant churches as well while they have removed some of Rome's worse evils such as indulgences, and some even have reduced the number of sacraments down the two, the fact they retained the idea of sacraments to begin with is false and a place where they went astray. Even more disturbing is they use the same exact lingo as Rome and it's definitions.




LUTHERANS:


The Lutheran Sacraments are "sacred acts of divine institution".[1] Lutherans believe that, whenever they are properly administered by the use of the physical component commanded by God along with the divine words of institution, God is, in a way specific to each sacrament, present with the Word and physical component.[1] They teach that God earnestly offers to all who receive the sacrament forgiveness of sins and eternal salvation.[1] They teach that he also works in the recipients to get them to accept these blessings and to increase the assurance of their possession.[1] Though the Lutheran Church only teaches two sacraments, most churches still practice the "seven sacraments" of the Catholic, Anglican, and Orthodox Church (though they are referred to as "rites.")[2]



METHODISTS: [From the United Methodist website.."United Methodists and Communion: Some Questions and Answers"]


"What do United Methodists mean when they call this act a sacrament?
Our Confession of Faith states: “We believe the sacraments, ordained by Christ, are symbols and pledges of the Christian’s profession and of God’s love toward us. They are means of grace by which God works invisibly in us, quickening [bringing to life], strengthening and confirming our faith in him. Two Sacraments are ordained by Christ our Lord, namely Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.” The term is taken from the Latin sacramentum, which was a Roman soldier’s pledge of allegiance. A sacrament is God‘s pledge of allegiance [love and faithfulness] to us, and our answering pledge of allegiance to God.".




EPISCOPALIAN{From the official website for the Episcopal Church [American]


“Sacraments are outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual grace” (Book of Common Prayer, p. 857).
Besides baptism and the Eucharist (Holy Communion), the church recognizes other spiritual markers in our journey of faith. These include:Confirmation (the adult affirmation of our baptismal vows), pp. 413-419, Book of Common Prayer, Reconciliation of a Penitent (private confession), pp. 447-452, Book of Common Prayer, Matrimony (Christian marriage), pp. 422-438, Book of Common Prayer,Orders (ordination to deacon, priest, or bishop), pp. 510-555, Book of Common Prayer,Unction (anointing with oil those who are sick or dying) pp. 453-467, Book of Common Prayer
These help us to be a sacramental people, seeing God always at work around us."




PRESBYTERIAN 

"What do Presbyterians believe about sacraments?
Sacraments: Grace we can touch"

WHAT PRESBYTERIANS BELIEVE ABOUT THE SACRAMENTS
"What is a Sacrament?
Literally, the word sacrament means “holy thing.” Presbyterians believe that a sacrament is a sign of the real presence and power of Christ in the Church—a symbol of God’s action. Through the sacraments, God seals us in redemption, renews our identity as people of God, and marks us for service.
Just as we believe that the Word of God is revealed in the Scriptures, so too we believe that the Word of God is enacted in the sacraments. As such, they are an integral part of worship—as integral as the proclamation of God’s Word.



UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST


"As I was sorting through some books donated to our used book project, The Dusty Cover, I came across "From Beginning to End: The Rituals Of Our Lives" by Robert Fulghum. Flipping through the book, I came across some basic ideas he puts forth about rituals:{snip}
* Rituals create sacred time.
* Sacred time is the dwelling place of the Eternal.
* Haste and ambition are the adversaries of sacred time.
Is this so?
What do you think about these "propositions"? What role does ritual play in your life, whether they be public (weddings), private (birthdays) or secret (puberty/menopause)? Have we lost something of ritual in our life here in Western Christianity outside of the sacraments? How can we embrace them once again?"

{From amazon review posted by Jamie Arpin-Ricci--Robert Fulgrum was a Unitarian Universalist minister.

Sure the Unitarian Universalists don't follow "Christian" sacraments perse, by they do make heavy use of rituals and rites, even mixing and blending them from other religions. They have infant baptism called infant dedication.



EMERGENTS

Emergents often make up new sacraments and rituals to add to all the Catholic ones they are re-introducing. See a variety here at this website including new ones like "Advent fridge magnet prayers" to old ones mixed with new stuff using a scripted prayer from an Anabaptist theologian.


Then add in several other churches, Church of Christ--baptismal regeneration, celebration of sacraments, and many other denominations which have retained sacraments.



Sacraments are false. They come from Rome. Even the idea of a sacrament where something must be "sacrificed" takes away from the one time sacrifice of Jesus Christ, and adds works to the gospel. We know the Catholic church calls the Mass, the "HOLY SACRIFICE of the MASS, I posted about how the daughters kept to the altars and the false communion in this article:

The Daughters: Protestant Churches #1: Altars and Pseudo-Masses


Sadly the daughter Protestant churches kept this lie from Rome. The daughters have sacraments. They credit themselves and the clergy system as handing over "power" and "grace" to their people in the pews when the true power of God is within the gospel.
