Hello again folks! If ever one wanted to see just how unbiblical; downright Babylonian and spiritually dark the doctrines of the roman catholic church are then you must must shudder like me when you see all the hype in the news today over the 'beautification' of the former; deceased Pope John John Paul II:
Our ultimate Authority and Source of reference is the Word. And the Word [The Holy Bible] tells us that: "... it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment ..." [Hebrews 9:27]. That judgement is by the Lord Jesus Christ and not a pseudo-religious organization of fallen men twisting and jerking the Word of God into "... doctrines of demons ...". Exhuming a coffin and then performing irreligious mantras over it for the sake of false doctrine is indeed a stink in God's nostrils.
Karol Józef Wojtyła was a fallen man like you and me. None of us can earn credit[s] with God on our own merits. Indeed, True Salvation is the GIFT of God and you cannot earn a gift! The Bible teaches us that any believer who leaves this life in a right standing with their Maker is a saint. Honouring the dead in this fashion is no different than the practice of trying to talk to them and is wholly dishonouring to God.
I feel so very sad yet angry that such a huge multitude of folks will gather to 'celebrate' this grand deception today - in the presence of such 'dignitaries' as Robert Mugabe. The fields are indeed white for harvest. The problem is that there is a field of True Salvation and a field of destruction.
Roman catholics need True Salvation as much as Jews; muslims; Jehovah's Witnesses; Mormons; atheists et al. But are we up for it? Really?
DECEPTION is the name of the game in the Last Days. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!
God bless you and God bless Israel ... KJS ... 01-May-2011
