Hello again folks! Blog #600. If you needed a clue as to the true nature of the roman catholic church [RCC]; the pope and its many doctrinal errors; you need look no further than the fact that the much-hyped visit of the former head of the inquisition and ex-Hitler youth member is constantly being cited as a state visit. The Vatican is a state and the pope is head of that state. Technically; he is not visiting our shores as head of a religious organization; per Se. What I would like to say is this. The pope [and his predecessors] is an enemy [still] of this country on many levels since the Reformation. The RCC is; next to islam; is the greatest threat to biblical Christianity. Its dogmas which include the mass; the co-redemptrix status of Mary; the praying to the dead and veneration of souls long passed but [supposedly] in purgatory are all extra -biblical. The leader of said 'church' [which this writer labels a cult] is on record as having covered up for not a short time the crimes of paedophile priests and nuns.
POPE = NO HOPE
NO POPE = HOPE
So on many levels including conduct and doctrine; the visit of the pope to 'Mary's dowry' is not a good thing. I have encountered such a lot of general dissatisfaction with work colleagues; friends and family with not only the visit taking place but the British taxpayer having to fund it. But - unfortunately - we have to because it is a state visit you see. It is a visit to do with the temporal and not the spiritual. Jesus said that believers [and by extension their organizations] should not be 'friends with the world.' If ever there was a religious body that was in bed with mammon; it is the RCC. That is the huge clue as to its real intentions. I sympathize with those well-intentioned lay members of the RCC who know not what kind of trap they are ensnared in. I struggle to understand why True believers remain in this cult.
But as with a lot of occurrences in this life; this visit may may create opportunities to reach those deceived; lost souls in the RCC structure.This is why I posted my previous blog w.r.t. the meeting being held this weekend in Telford featuring ex-catholics who intend to provide much needed advice on how to reach currently practising RCC members with the Truth:
Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!
