Putin: ‘Pope Francis Is Not A Man Of God’

Putin has slammed Pope Francis for “pushing a political ideology instead of running a church”, and warned that the pope is not a "man of God."

President Putin has slammed Pope Francis for “pushing a political ideology instead of running a church”, and warned that the leader of the Catholic Church “is not a man of God.”

Pope Francis is using his platform to push a dangerous far-left political ideology on vulnerable people around the world, people who trust him because of his position,” Putin said.

If you look at what he (the Pope) says it’s clear that he is not a man of God. At least not the Christian God. Not the God of the Bible,” Putin said at the Naval Cathedral of St. Nicholas in Kronstadt.

“He dreams of a world government and a global communist system of repression.

“As we have seen before in communist states, this system is not compatible with Christianity.

The pope has become increasingly brazen this year in pushing the globalist agenda and far-left talking points upon the masses. Earlier this year he called for a global central bank and financial authority, and more recently he saidAmericans need to be ruled by a world government as soon as possible for their own good.”

Pope Francis’s idea that Americans would be better off under a world government doesn’t stop there. The radical leftist pontiff also went on record stating that Europe should become one country under one government.

He is also on record calling for a China-style one child policy for Western nations, as well as telling a congregation in Rome that having a personal relationship with Jesus is “dangerous and harmful.”

While Putin is a practicing Christian, he is not a Roman Catholic, and the pope is not his leader. According to his recent statements, President Putin does not even consider Pope Francis to be Christian.

The Russian president is rarely openly critical of foreign leaders, instead preferring to use diplomacy to win people over to his side. However notorious globalists including George Soros, Jacob Rothschild and Bill Gates have received tongue lashings before, and now Pope Francis has joined their company.

Pope Francis is trying to lay the groundwork for a global communist government. President Putin is wise to his ruse and has called him out on it. It’s time for more world leaders to tell the pope to stay in his own lane.

    Ohhh Mr. Pope..This is one short life for you buddy..

    • Sister Charlotte

      Or is it long?..I was raised Catholic…but encountered YESHUA/JESUS in 1976, so I have a “PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS” and in studying the WORD have come to the conclusion that the Pope, whoever he might be, will possibly be the “FALSE PROPHET” in
      Revelation 19:20 “And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast”

      • sdk14754977

        A Catholic has the most personal relationship with Our Lord that is possible. We receive Him in the Holy Eucharist, He comes into our bodies and souls. We become more and more like Him the longer we frequent the Sacraments. And He said, “I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever; and the bread that I will give, is my flesh, for the life of the world. The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying: How can this man give us his flesh to eat? Then Jesus said to them: Amen, amen I say unto you: Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you shall not have life in you. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath everlasting life: and I will raise him up in the last day.” John 6:51-55.
        Charlotte, you have been deceived by Protestants, who have no Faith and no Church, and robbed of your birthright. Return to the One, true, Catholic Church while you still have time. The Church has been infiltrated by Freemasons, Zionists, Communists, Modernists and Atheists, and yes, homosexuals and pedophiles also. But it will be restored by Our Lady as was prophesied at Fatima. In the meantime, you can still find good and holy priests and all the traditions of the pre-Conciliar Church with the Society of St. Pius X. And remember, outside of the Church, there is no salvation because that is God’s will, that we follow the Church He founded on earth. Pray the Rosary and wear the Brown Scapular. Time is short and a terrible chastisement is coming. Prepare your soul! All of the enemies of the Church will be destroyed and those who survive will see the most glorious resurrection of the Church and will be filled with joy.

          Ephesians 2:8-9

          8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

          9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

        • Caprice

          That was beautiful. Thank you. I will take your advice.

        • Mike

          When you say there is no salvation outside of the church that is not a correct statement, what is the church? It is the people of God. Salvation does not come through the church but only through Jesus Christ! John 14:6, Acts 4: 12, John 8:12, John 3.

          • Annette Martin

            Amen, and Amen. Salvation comes only through one name, that of Jesus Christ. It is not a church, or a Pope, nor a Pastor. It is not achieved by works or good deeds, only by the saving blood of Jesus Christ and is totally by His grace. I came from Catholicism…I know what it is, It is a works-based religion with no assurance of your salvation. I believe there are some Catholics that have a true faith, but many are depending on everything but Christ. Rosary beads and scapulas will not save you.

          • richp

            You claim you “came from Catholicism” yet your ignorance of Catholicism is ASTOUNDING. “A works-based religion” ? No, it is Faith and Good Works. St. Paul urges us to “Work out your salvation with fear and trembling”, as it is God, in the end, Who will judge us based on what we DID thru Faith in Him.

          • Annette Martin

            It is works based. I know, my Father, who is a staunch Catholic, lives with me and I see what he does out of obligation. We are saved purely through grace by faith, and not by works, lest any man should boast. We are not judged on what we did, that is completely unbiblical. Our works are as filthy rags to Him unless they are done with a grateful, freed, and redeemed heart. Our works come out of a regenerated spirit and do not save us. I know what a rosary is, what a scapula is, what indulgences are, purgatory, etc. The Bible also warns against repetitive prayers. Mary, although special and honored by God, is not sinless and she is not to be prayed to, no more than we should pray to saints or through them. We should pray to our heavenly Father in the name of Jesus. Sorry, you felt a need to call me ignorant. I am not..Having come from the RCC, I saw firsthand what it was. God opened my eyes. I am not saying that Catholics are not saved, only the Lord is the judge of that, but I think there are a lot of things that get in the way of a true relationship with Christ, and a lot of things that are a bondage to Catholics. I feel there is a lot of idolatry in the RCC. We should worship only Christ.

          • richp

            Yes, you are ignorant of the Catholic Faith…or else you have rejected the faith of your father and the Apostles knowingly to the detriment of your soul. There is only on Lord, one Faith, one Baptism, as St. Paul says, hence there is only one, holy, catholic (which means “universal”, by the way) and apostolic church. The assembly you belong to now, or even if you have declared yourself a Christian island, is nothing more than varying opinions on Scripture and who Jesus is and what He said. While it is true that all the good works in the world cannot help you work out your salvation without being united to Christ thru sanctioning grace, faith alone will not do it either; after all, even Satan acknowledges Jesus is Lord.

          • Annette Martin

            My faith in Christ has only grown. I have only rejected the RCC. What the heck is a Christian Island, anyway? As Christians, we have the Great Commission–to go and make disciples for Christ, so a Christian island is an oxymoron. Although, I am not a theologian, I have done quite a bit of study. You misread what I said..As many Catholics do, you misunderstand that works are the result of a regenerated spirit and are not what save you. I agree that if one is truly saved, there will be fruit that is evident in their lives BUT faith in the person of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and His atoning sacrifice on the cross as the payment for our sins is what saves anyone, and nothing else. If anything, I think Catholics are the exclusionary ones, as you declared the RCC as the one true Church. The Church is the Body of Christ, the body of believers and consists of anyone that has come to a true saving faith. Satan acknowledges Christ, but Christ is certainly not his Lord and Savior. Thanks for calling me ignorant a second time…that is useless and insulting.

          • richp

            I repeat the words of St. Paul, which you choose not to address: There is only ONE Lord, ONE Faith and ONE baptism. The Church of Christ , the Mystical Body of Christ, was carried on by the Apostles after our Lord rose from the dead, ascended to Heaven and sent the Holy Spirit to guide His Church thru Peter. That one, apostolic and visible Church continues to this day. It is not an insult to call one ignorant. Ignorance simply means lacking a full understanding. I do not willfully insult anyone. That is uncharitable. I use the word ” island” for those who consider themselves the well-known sage of Christians and does not subscribe to any particular denomination. I don’t know what denomination of the quadrillion factions that have split off from the Church over the ages, you adhere to, or whether you belong to no denomination, but the fact remains there is only one Church, and to be a member of that Mystical Body requires baptism. I presume your Catholic parents had you baptized, so you are Catholic. You need to learn more about the meaning of working out your salvation and the difference between believing in Jesus and living the Faith. If you are avoiding sin and doing good while United to Christ as your Saviour, you are working out your salvation with faith and good works…in other works. Now you just need to rid yourself of the false teachings of Protestantism and you will be fully Catholic, sister.

          • Annette Martin

            And you know what, my friend, there was plenty you didn’t address also, like repetitive prayers and worshiping Mary, idolatry, etc. I know what ignorant means, you don’t need to educate me, and I also know how people use that word thinking they are clever as a subtle way of insulting people. I happen to go to a Baptist Church, but I am above all, a Christian..And you just confirmed what I was trying to say..Faith is first, salvation is first, then come works and they do not save you. It seems Catholics use the scripture about working out your salvation as an example of condoning works..We do not work out our salvation, as far as adding to what Jesus did..This scripture illustrates our place, our awe, our reverence before a holy God. We deserve death, but He gives us what we do not deserve, and cannot be earned which is salvation and eternal life.

          • Bryan

            Annette, I too am a Baptist. You are absolutely right. Faith and believing wholeheartedly that Christ is your Lord and savior is the only way to salvation. And if the Holy Spirit was sent only for Peter to continue the church, then why was it given to the other apostles and then they were sent out into the world to spread the Word? Christ himself came to Paul who was then sent out to teach the Word to Gentiles (non Jews). Everywhere he went he started a church. A decidedly non-Catholic Church.

          • Annette Martin

            Good to hear from you. Catholics mistakenly think that theirs is the only true Church. And they think that when Jesus said, “You are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church”, that Jesus was talking about Peter. He was talking about Peter’s profession of faith that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of the Living God–that was the rock Jesus was talking about. What is also amazing to me is how they deify the Pope, especially this Pope who has said some absolutely awful non-Christian things. We do not place our trust in any man, in any pastor, minister, or Pope. It is only in Jesus Christ.

          • richp

            So, Pope Annette. who annointed YOU and gave you the ability to pronounce the truth with authority, hmm?

          • richp

            Oh–and if you think there is not only ONE Church, you make St. Paul, all the early Church writers and saints, and even Christ Himself out to be liar.
            ” There is only ONE Lord, ONE Faith and ONE baptism”.

          • Jesus Love’s You

            One church? Church is body of Christ. How can there be multiple bodies of Christ?

          • richp

            I don’t understand your question. That is my point. There is only one Body, only one Church…

          • Jose David Castaneda

            The ability to trace one’s church back to the “first church” through apostolic succession is an argument used by a number of different churches to assert that their church is the “one true church.” The Roman Catholic Church makes this claim. The Greek Orthodox Church makes this claim. Some Protestant denominations make this claim. Some of the “Christian” cults make this claim. How do we know which church is correct? The biblical answer is ” it does not matter!

            The first church, its growth, doctrine, and practices, were recorded for us in the New Testament. Jesus, as well as His apostles, foretold that false teachers would arise, and indeed it is apparent from some of the New Testament epistles that these apostles had to fight against false teachers early on. Having a pedigree of apostolic succession or being able to trace a church’s roots back to the “first church” is nowhere in Scripture given as a test for being the true church. What is given is repeated comparisons between what false teachers teach and what the first church taught, as recorded in Scripture. Whether a church is the “true church” or not is determined by comparing its teachings and practices to that of the New Testament church, as recorded in Scripture.

            For instance, in Acts 20:17-38, the Apostle Paul has an opportunity to talk to the church leaders in the large city of Ephesus one last time face to face. In that passage, he tells them that false teachers will not only come among them but will come FROM them (vv. 29-30). Paul does not set forth the teaching that they were to follow the “first” organized church as a safeguard for the truth. Rather, he commits them to the safekeeping of “God and to the word of His grace” (v. 32). Thus, truth could be determined by depending upon God and “the word of His grace” (i.e., Scripture, see John 10:35).

            This dependence upon the Word of God, rather than following certain individual “founders” is seen again in Galatians 1:8-9, in which Paul states, “But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.” Thus, the basis for determining truth from error is not based upon even WHO it is that is teaching it, “we or an angel from heaven,” but whether it is the same gospel that they had already received ” and this gospel is recorded in Scripture.

            Another example of this dependence upon the Word of God is found in 2 Peter. In this epistle, the Apostle Peter is fighting against false teachers. In doing so, Peter begins by mentioning that we have a “more sure word” to depend upon than even hearing the voice of God from heaven as they did at Jesus’ transfiguration (2 Peter 1:16-21). This “more sure word” is the written Word of God. Peter later tells them again to be mindful of “the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets and the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Savior” (2 Peter 3:2). Both the words of the holy prophets and the commandments Jesus gave to the apostles are recorded in Scripture.

            How do we determine whether a church is teaching correct doctrine or not? The only infallible standard that Scripture says that we have is the Bible (Isaiah 8:20; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Matthew 5:18; John 10:35; Isaiah 40:8; 1 Peter 2:25; Galatians 1:6-9). Tradition is a part of every church, and that tradition must be compared to God’s Word, lest it go against what is true (Mark 7:1-13). It is true that the cults and sometimes orthodox churches twist the interpretation of Scripture to support their practices; nonetheless, Scripture, when taken in context and faithfully studied, is able to guide one to the truth.

            The “first church” is the church that is recorded in the New Testament, especially in the Book of Acts and the Epistles of Paul. The New Testament church is the “original church” and the “one true church.” We can know this because it is described, in great detail, in Scripture. The church, as recorded in the New Testament, is God’s pattern and foundation for His church. On this basis, let’s examine the Roman Catholic claim that it is the “first church.” Nowhere in the New Testament will you find the “one true church” doing any of the following: praying to Mary, praying to the saints, venerating Mary, submitting to a pope, having a select priesthood, baptizing an infant, observing the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper as sacraments, or passing on apostolic authority to successors of the apostles. All of these are core elements of the Roman Catholic faith. If most of the core elements of the Roman Catholic Church were not practiced by the New Testament Church (the first church and one true church), how then can the Roman Catholic Church be the first church? A study of the New Testament will clearly reveal that the Roman Catholic Church is not the same church as the church that is described in the New Testament.

            The New Testament records the history of the church from approximately A.D. 30 to approximately A.D. 90. In the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th centuries, history records several Roman Catholic doctrines and practices among early Christians. Is it not logical that the earliest Christians would be more likely to understand what the Apostles truly meant? Yes, it is logical, but there is one problem. Christians in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th centuries were not the earliest Christians. Again, the New Testament records the doctrine and practice of the earliest Christians”and, the New Testament does not teach Roman Catholicism. What is the explanation for why the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th century church began to exhibit signs of Roman Catholicism?

            The answer is simple ” the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th century (and following) church did not have the complete New Testament. Churches had portions of the New Testament, but the New Testament (and the full Bible) were not commonly available until after the invention of the printing press in A.D. 1440. The early church did its best in passing on the teachings of the apostles through oral tradition, and through extremely limited availability to the Word in written form. At the same time, it is easy to see how false doctrine could creep into a church that only had access to the Book of Galatians, for example. It is very interesting to note that the Protestant Reformation followed very closely after the invention of the printing press and the translation of the Bible into the common languages of the people. Once people began to study the Bible for themselves, it became very clear how far the Roman Catholic Church had departed from the church that is described in the New Testament.

            Scripture never mentions using “which church came first” as the basis for determining which is the “true” church. What it does teach is that one is to use Scripture as the determining factor as to which church is preaching the truth and thus is true to the first church. It is especially important to compare Scripture with a church’s teaching on such core issues as the full deity and humanity of Christ, the atonement for sin through His blood on Calvary, salvation from sin by grace through faith, and the infallibility of the Scriptures. The “first church” and “one true church” is recorded in the New Testament. That is the church that all churches are to follow, emulate, and model themselves after.

          • richp

            Pardon me, Bryan, but that is bunk. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit upon the entire Church, which at that time consisted of the Apostles and a number of disciples. The lead Apostle was Peter, appointed by Christ to lead the Church. The fact that St. Paul traveled extensively in spreading the Word does not mean he started a another church separate from the Church of Christ. That is ludicrous. The word “catholic” meaning “universal” was used by the early Christian Church within the 1st century. It always referred to the Church founded by Christ, even to this day. Each and EVERY other Christian denomination was a faction that broke away because the founder did not like the Church’s teachings on one matter or another. There is only one Baptism, so “Protestants” are baptised into the one Church, but you remain separated until you embrace her full teachings, including the Magisterium, who, by the way, gave you your Bible.

          • Paul Roman

            The fact that you are a Baptist goes to show you have no idea about the Catholic Church. If you did, there is no way in hell you would abandon the true faith for a false church. Just because you claim to be a former Catholic and you’re father being a devout Catholic doesn’t mean you know about the Catholic faith. I agree with Richp that you show extraordinary ignorance on the Catholic faith especially the nonsense about worship of Mary. Go do your research before you comment and you will find the Catholic church speaks nothing but the absolute Godly truth. Not only that, the Holy Spirit resides in the Catholic Church. The Church meaning all Catholics which are his Church. Yes the Holy Spirit can be elsewhere but the true church it abounds.
            One cannot truly call yourself a Christian without being Catholic. Remember you use our bible we produced. Our traditions are the correct and only way to worship. Every other “Christian” denomination has no authority from God.

            This whole debate right here is one of the reasons why millions of people reject Jesus simply by watching us argue with each other. Come on brothers and sisters, there’s people needing to see the love we have for one another.

          • richp

            Again you have demonstrated your…let’s say ” lack of understanding” of what Christ’s Church teaches. Of course it is Christ who saves us, and of course we don’t “work out” our salvation apart from Him. On that all Christians agree. The truth is, Christ saves us in, with and through us. We need to cooperate. We need to be united with him in this life and through death so that we, too, can rise again in the Kingdom of Heaven. The Church presents Sacred Scipture as a whole, not in in bits and pieces or ” sound bites” from this Book and that, as Protestants tend to do. Yes, we don’t ” earn our salvation” but our faith that Jesus is the Son of God must be coupled with how we act out that faith, what we do for our fellow man, how we act virtuously rather than sinfully, etc. I would appreciate it if you would stop putting negative intent upon my words. It is my intention here to instruct what the Church teaches. I am a practising Catholic and I am knowledgeable about these things, and it is offensive to me but moreover to Christ and His Church when you continue to misrepresent her teachings.

            the devil, and the desires of your
            father you will do. He was a
            murderer from the beginning, and he abode not in the truth: because

            he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of
            his own: for he is a liar, and the father thereof.

            Have you ever prayed for someone or asked someone to pray for you? This is what we do, when we ask for the highest of human creatures to pray and intercede for us. The Blessed Virgin Mary was chosen above all women to be the mother of God yup right the MOTHER OF GOD. She is the living Tabernacle who carried the “Word” made flesh who dwelt among us, Jesus and her blood mingled. The Arc of the Covenant contained the Ten Commandments the Blessed Virgin Mary carried Jesus.. Do you think God would permit anything that was not totally pure clean to carry Him the Second person of the Holy Trinity? Sad your knowledge of God is horrible.

            Repetitive Prayer what do the Cherubim and Seraphim do they were made to praise God always they never stop saying HOLY HOLY HOLY they were made only to do one thing Praise and Glorify GOD.

            BTW I am sure you remember St. Bernadette Lourdes France where Our Lady appeared and miracles still happen to this day.
            An official of the French Army asked St. Bernadette once whether she feared an invasion of the Prussians. She responded, “I only fear bad Catholics.” He responded, “Don’t you fear anything else?” She said—“NO NOTHING”

            The problem is that you Catholics think you have all the answers. I know I do not, but I know God does. Sorry, Dishalo, but dead people cannot pray for you and that includes Mary. Although honored by God, she was human, and Jesus was God and man…The Lord used many people, as imperfect as they were to do His work. Why are you Catholics so defensive and bitter? That is what I am seeing. I know it gives you peace thinking that you have the truth and the perfect and only church, but the Church is the Body of believers in Christ, and that crosses denominations. What I have experienced on this thread is a lot of vitriol from Catholics who are very defensive of their church. Instead, you should be standing for and sharing Christ.. I don’t even know why I am talking to you because I’m just going to get a lot of nasty replies. I stand on the Rock, which is Jesus Christ, only Christ, not man’s traditions or a church, not even mine..You get that? It’s about Him and only Him..

            All I can say is, you better pray that Catholics are wrong or you will have lost Eternity.
            We are not defensive and bitter we just want everyone to have eternal life and with out the Authority of the Church that Christ gave to it, there isn’t.
            It is sad you lost your Faith. May God restore what you have lost.

          • CumExApostolatus

            Catholics don’t believe that good works add ANYTHING to what Jesus did on the Cross. That is incorrect. By inference, you are stating (as do I believe most if not all protestant denominations) that you can be the most venal and vile of sinners but in the end, if you say that Jesus is the Son of God, you will reap a heavenly reward. Catholics believe one cannot be a venal and vile sinner all of ones life and immediately be worthy of a heavenly reward upon the instant of death. That makes a mockery of God’s justice. God is BOTH mercy and justice. One cannot exist without the other.

            Catholics do not ‘worship’ the Blessed Virgin Mary. We pray for her intercession with her Son because as the Immaculate Conception who bore the Son of God, she is His most pure human creation.
            If you don’t like Catholics, that’s fine. But don’t misrepresent Catholic teachings.

          • Annette Martin

            I was Catholic, and I went to a Catholic school. I belonged to an organization called the Legion of Mary. I was in 7th or 8th grade. We went into a darkened room, lit many candles and did a whole ritualistic service to Mary, so don’t tell me there is no Mary worship. Protestants do not believe you can be the vilest of sinners and because of God’s grace we are covered. That is ridiculous and I even sometimes here this same thing from Protestants. A born-again believer has the conviction of the Holy Spirit and wants to live a life pleasing to God. We don’t want to sin, so that is utter foolishness. That said, we know that Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross is the covering for our sins–past, present, and future. I would agree if one believes they can do anything they want and receive a heavenly reward, that is completely false. This is not about not liking Catholics. Some of my very dear friends and most of my family is Catholic, but I was led away from the RCC because God opened my eyes..I do believe that Catholics, or any Christian can be saved if they give their lives and hearts to Christ. So, you see, you completely misinterpreted what I believe. At least I have the Catholic background to give me some credence.

            Perhaps, in your youth, you misunderstood the “whole ritualistic service to Mary”. It’s never a service. It’s always a prayer. But, you’re correct. This gets us nowhere.

          • Annette Martin

            Didn’t misunderstand at all. Even if they were just prayers, God’s Word never talks about praying in anyone’s name but the Lord Jesus Christ..not saints, not Mary..

          • CumExApostolatus

            We don’t pray in the name of Mary, we pray asking for her intercession or that of the saints and angels.

          • Ene Etuk

            Yea I agree with you…calling somebody Ignorance is not an insult, so Martin dont be offended by that…

          • Michele Osmak

            There’s only one baptism … which is the one YOU choose with your heart to be baptised… not the one your parents have gave to you without your concern as in the age of child we can not understand anything …
            that’s why in the age of 30’s Jesus asked to be baptised “to teach a lesson” .
            You have to understand the meaning of it… you give your life in the hands of God …. you have to understand between old and new person, why is a straight way to fallow , and tit is not easy to every one .. we have to stop the sins we are committing than we can decide the truly way we want to go …
            Depending of our decision we will or not be saved .
            The ones who had been baptised become a new one not as creation but as son’s and daughter of God …
            Those one will be saved.

          • richp

            Whatever you say, Pope Michele.
            Baptism is a sacrament that conveys sanctioning grace and removes original sin so Church baptized as early as possible, but… whatever you say.

          • Robert

            Water Baptism does not wash a sinners sin away, only the Blood of Jesus Christ can do that! It is an ordinance that Jesus Christ commanded of believers to do, it is an outward act to show your faith in Jesus Christ to your Church and the community that you have accepted Jesus as your Savior. It is very important but does not cleanse you of any sins. Baptism alone can not save you at all.

          • mabonga moses

            Richp, you ought to note that Michele stand point represents a true biblical version. Please reflect on the following scripture;
            Mar 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

          • mabonga moses

            Perfect version Mr. Osmak

          • Nims Arque

            Stop claiming Catholic as the true church established by the Lord through his 12 apostles, catholic only emerge 313 A.D, the Church established by the Lord through his 12 Apostles had been in apostate condition when Rome took over the church, replaced her Bishops, replaced her names, doctrines and ordinances, and her organizations, the catholic church today is not the church of Jesus Christ, its Roman Church, it has no authority from God..

          • richp

            Aside from your historical misinformation, by whose authority do you claim that, hmmm?

          • MarcDaniel Syrius

            Excuse me Rich. But the Roman Catholic church is not a Christian organization in the least. Read revelation chapter 17 and even 13. Maybe that will help you understand something that at this point you don’t. And to continue in your self righteous attitude towards my sister is only exposing the identity of the spirit within you. Your fruit is rotten and so is your learned knowledge.. this sister is giving you God given wisdom and you are acting like a dog spitting up your vomit when she battles the dark side with her truth given by Almighty Himself

          • richp

            Is she syrius? You must be mighty proud of your self-annointed sister, Pope Annette I.

            What the???? Who are you to stand in judgment of me?

          • richp

            What the??? Where do you see me standing in judgment of you? Moreover, who are you to judge me as judging you???

          • Annette Martin

            Rich, you are acting like a child. This conversation is over. Believe what you will, so will the rest of us.. We are supposed to be proclaiming Christ, not proving the superiority of our denomination. If the RCC gives you what you need, then so be it. I have found my way–I hope you find yours. Peace..

          • richp

            You are the pot calling the kettle black. You denounce the Church for claiming superiority while claim that superiority for yourself in how you interpret Sacred Scripture. Who gave you authority? Where did the Bible come from? How do we know it is not a work of fiction? Who says it is the Word of God? Use your reason…you’ll figure it out.

          • Jan Cvetek

            Yeah, you are beautiful… but much more with all your decorations (your works – not of God)…
            Hope that you understand the point…

          • Annette Martin

            Nope…I have no idea what you mean.. Care to elaborate? Are you insulting me also?

          • Jan Cvetek

            Far from insulting…
            Just telling you that works are important and are allso revelation of God’s Love, beauty and so on…

          • Annette Martin

            it sure sounded personally insulting. Works are the by-product of a born again believer. Anything done apart from Christ, outside of Christ is nothing. See John 15…But what you said…Works are the revelation of God’s love..yes, you must have the love of God first..You have to be born again. At that point, your eternity is sealed, as you are with the Holy Spirit. So your salvation, your redemption is secure, then come the good works..BTW, the only beauty I possess is from the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and because I have been given the righteousness of Jesus.

          • Austin

            Who gave the bible you and I read and who should better be believed, pope or Putin?

          • Annette Martin

            Only God can judge their hearts. Just because he has the title of Pope doesn’t make him automatically holy. Putin may have had a true change of heart, and I can only make my assessments from observing their “fruit”. Why should I believe or trust this Pope who has exhibited many Socialist tendencies and has promoted the New World Order and supports the whole Climate Change agenda?

          • richp

            Annette, I wholly agree with you on your assessment of this “Pope”. Many Catholics contend he was not elected licitly and that Benedict is still Pope. The Church has had holy Popes and sinful Popes, but this one might be counted among the “anti-Popes”, as he has an agenda that is anti-Catholic and unChristian.

          • paul roman

            Yes and the people of God are Catholics. We are the church, the only church. I just dont get how dumb people are. Let me spell it out for you. When Jesus ascended to heaven, there needed to be leadership of this new group of Jesus followers hence Peter was chosen. Its normal and expected to have a successor contrary to the ignorance of those who do not accept the verse in the bible which correctly states that Peter was his successor. At the day of Pentecost with the Holy Spirit upon the apostles began the birth of the Catholic Church. It is the tradition handed down to the apostles from Christ that we Catholics follow. You Protestants and evangelicals..Americans sigh…cannot reinvent the Christian wheel based on whatever the hell you think is right. Only we the Catholic Church has the authority to say what goes and what doesnt. We gave the world the bible and it is by our apostolic tradition we understand it. Our worship is from the apostles. There is only one form of worship instituted by them. It is so funny to read every twisted, distorted understanding of Catholicism to try an invalidate the Catholic Church in the futile attempt to justify your own false churches and teachings.
            This is the facts. Accept it. You denying the Catholic church means complete defiance and rejection of God and Christ who instituted the Catholic Church. Do the research, remove the Protestant blinkers and brainwashing from your mind, the arrogance, the blindness and you will come to the light of the truth.

          • Annette Martin

            This is a fruitless exchange. Of course you have the right to believe whatever you want, but realize that you may not be right. None of us have the whole picture. I just know what I was taught as a child and I knew from very early on that something was missing. Mainly, it was the study of the Word of God and priests telling us that we should not study because only they could rightly interpret God’s Word. I wanted to read it and study it for myself. How utterly ridiculous of you to say that I have abandoned God when I left the RCC. On the contrary, I found Him, in His Word. I learned that my faith is in Christ alone, not any denomination or leader. It is all about Jesus. I find your whole response to be a futile attempt to defend the RCC and it’s traditions. The Bible warns about relying on empty traditions that are man-made. I don’t need to defend myself or what I believe, because God’s Word stands on it’s own. You have been very nasty and insulting, and if this is representative of the RCC, this helps me remember why I left. The problem is that you think only you are right. I will not wallow in the mire with you. You can call me twisted and distorted and whatever else. My eyes have been opened to the truth. I really hope you find it.

          • richp

            Once again you are twisting the meaning of what we Catholics say and believe. Why can you not face the fact that you left the Church? You are an apostate, a protestant. That is not an insult, it is a fact. Nobody has authority to teach on Scripture except Christ and the Church He founded, as He, as the the Word of God. IS Scripture and He gave us His Word thru His Church; the Bible came from the Church, not vice versa. Therefore, everything you beleve that is other and opposite of what the Church teaches is a lie, an anti-truth, from your own stiff spine and arrogance, and ultimately from the anti-Christ.

          • Annette Martin

            You really are haughty and arrogant. Please stop this. I hope you feel really good about yourself with all of this condescension. Shame on you, because you know nothing about me and call me an apostate.. You win, big boy..Go, have a party, feel really good about yourself. I think you protest way too much.. Now, go and leave me alone..

          • Robert

            Good for you Sister, the priests say that you give me a child at age 5 and I will make him a Catholic for life, this is what Catechism is all about.

            Great posts, Paul. You’re a true “son of the Church”. 🙂

          • Robert

            You are both heretics and understand only what the Catholic Church has brainwashed you with. Son of satan best describes you both, However, I pray that you find the Jesus of the bible and become Born of the Spirit (Born Again) before it is to late for you both.Rev Robert

          • Ron Spain

            Works–attending service. Prayer time, reading and studying the word of God. TPB&GLFY the name of Jesus. He is the only way to the father. Only through him can you be saved. The pope can’t save you nor can he answer your prayers. And there’s nothing that Mary can do for you. Jesus is the one in heaven interceding for us not marry. Read your scriptures.

          • richp

            Mary, according to the angel Gabriel, is ” full of grace”, and the Virgin Mother of our Savior.Are you going to tell Jesus that there is nothing His Mother can do for us, no reason for us to honor her, to ask her to pray for us? Go ahead. Come back and tell us what He said.

          • richp

            There is no greater prayer than the Holy MASS, which is the Sacrifice of Christ on the Cross. We are made present to Christ’s one historical crucifixion and offer our sacrifices and good works up to the Father through Him.

            And who told you these things, Annette? Or did you just wake up one day and declare it from your golden throne of authority?

          • Bigg Dee

            You can’t be a “person of God” outside the Catholic Church. Mike, it is typical of protestants/heretics to cite verses and apply their own exegesis to suit their selfish needs. That is why there are so many false denominations, e.g. baptists, lutherans, methodists, etc. A famous convert to the True Church, whose name escapes me at the moment, said that “Someone has to be in charge.” That ‘someone’ is the Bride of Christ, his Church. Ultimately governed by and guided the Holy Ghost. This is clearly elucidated in Mathew 16:18. I certainly anticipate your rebuttal with one of you personal interpretations.

          • Mike

            Scripture know where says that we need the Catholic Church in anyway or form to be saved. I believe the Catholic Church is the mystery Babylon talked about in Revelation 17. You say how do we become a person of God without the Catholic Church, The question is how do you become a person of God with the Catholic Church. To become a person of God we must first be born again and have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We must repent of our sins and turn from them. We need to read scripture daily and the Holy Spirit will guide us and teach us all that we need to know. I do not blindly follow a false prophet (pope) Who leads and deceives millions of people damning them to hell. Do your history into the Popes many of them claim that they are Jesus Christ it reminds me where Jesus talks about The end times and how many people Will come and see if they are the Christ Matthew 24. I sincerely hope that you will repent and turn to Jesus Christ before it is too late

          • Bigg Dee

            Sacred Scripture no where says Sola scriptura, either. You state “I believe”. That is precisely the problem: everyone interpreting for themselves without a unified code of Faith and morals. Grace from a sacramental life is necessary for salvation, which can only be had from the hands of the successors to the Apostles, i.e priests. Please cite primary documents of the many popes who claimed any type of latria divinity. I appreciate your sincerity, although I implore you to beg God to truly enlighten your heart. By the way, where did the Bible come from and which books are included? Who decided? How? What did the early Christians do on the day after The Resurrection? Pax.

          • Mike

            All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16). Numbers 23:19 We also know that God does not change His mind or contradict Himself. So, while the Bible itself may not explicitly argue for sola scriptura, it most definitely does not allow for traditions that contradict its message. Sola scriptura is not as much of an argument against tradition as it is an argument against unbiblical, extra-biblical and/or anti-biblical doctrines. The only way to know for sure what God expects of us is to stay true to what we know He has revealed—the Bible. We can know, beyond the shadow of any doubt, that Scripture is true, authoritative, and reliable. The same cannot be said of tradition 1 peter 2:5,9 states that all believer are a holy priesthood, we in Christ are all priests. The church is not handed down through apostolic succession, that is based on tradition not scripture, the church is built on the rock/foundation of a sinless savior Jesus Christ not a fallible sinful man Peter. The apostles themselves would be shocked at what their teachings have evolved into.

          • Bigg Dee

            You are, once again, applying selective and personal interpretations to what you term as “The Bible”. Not to mention erroneous translations.

          • Mike

            In that day many will say lord lord I have done this in your name, He will say I never knew you. Do not let the church and its teachings deceive you, Don’t let that be the reality of what you base your salvation on, eternity is far to important to make a mistake with, The lord said His word will stand forever, it does not matter what way scripture was formed it was formed by the will of God, and when you mentioned Matthew 16 verse 18 Jesus is not talking about building his church on peter, what Peter had said about Christ just a few versus Down in verse 23 Jesus calls peter Satan, so why do you take one text to prove one thing and Then ignore another. Mathew 16:24-28 makes it very clear that we need to follow Jesus and no one else, why on earth would anyone want to build their church on a mortal sinful man, The foundation of the church I repeat is Jesus Christ not be created sinful being who has more in common with a worm thing with the creator, for there are only two categories, created and uncreated God and everything else in the other

          • richp

            You do not understand the meaning of the Church. The Church is Mystical. It is spiritual, and would not be “visible” unless our Blessed Lord made it so, so that we could SEE an invisible reality. Christ established the Church on earth on St. Peter, granting him authority over all things pertaining to Faith and morals. Christ then sent the Holy Spirit after His ascension to guide the Church and make it speak with the authority of God. It is for this reason that whomever speaks against or attacks the teachings of Christ’s Church does so against Christ Himself, offending God and endangering his/her soul.

          • Bigg Dee

            Once again, selective interpreting. We can go at this until we die. Then we’ll know the Truth. And both of us are going to be very, very scared. Nashing of teeth and all. Please tell me who led the early Christians before the Bible was codified. Where did the Bible come from? What gives you the authority to preach one way, while others preach another way? What makes you so authoritative? What about people who are illiterate? What do they do? You are scared to answer these questions because your heretical house will crumble.

          • Mike

            I am not afraid to answer any of your questions, LOL it is easy to ask a ton of questions it takes much longer answering them all. The New Testament is in the old contained the Old Testament is in the new explained. The apostles did nothing more then confirm the old testament explaining what the prophets had to say about the coming Messiah, how he had to suffer and die for the sins of the world. There is nothing really new in the new testament that the apostles teach, they use the old testament and explain it in the new. as to who led the church, that of course is Jesus Christ, read in revelation chapters 2 and 3 where Jesus is talking to the seven churches, he says to many of them that they have left their first love (Jesus), that they must strengthen what remains. The apostles certainly had a role in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the whole world however If what you claim is true that it was handed down to the Popes, why did the Popes not have the signs and wonders that the apostles had? Revelation 2:2 but you have tested those who call themselves apostles, and are not and have found them to be false” So many of the popes were proven to be corrupt, they would not even come close to comparing to one of the original apostles. About people who are illiterate, in the book of Romans 2:14-15 it talks about those people and how they have no excuse because God’s law is written on their hearts. Jesus also makes clear that if somebody seeks him they will find him. I will not be very very scared nor gnashing my teeth, I will be with the Lord because he promises salvation to all those who trust in him. He says that we have crossed over from death to life, revelation 2:11 he says we will not be hurt by the second death, to the thief on the cross Jesus said today you will be with me in paradise. how do you explain this sinful man being in paradise by just admitting that he was a sinner and repenting of it and asking Jesus to remember him. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, anything that contradicts the old and the new testament is a Heresy, you may call me a heretic but the traditions and writings of your popes contradict the word of God and therefore they are the heretics

          • richp

            How can you say without a doubt that Scipture is true, reliable and authoritative? Who’s to say it isn’t just a work of fiction?

          • Mike

            If it is a work of fiction why do you even bother belonging to a church? christ said his word will never pass away and also the Holy Spirit has given me the conviction that the Bible is absolutely true

          • David

            richp: It’s not the “man-made” Roman Catholic Church’s authority; that’s 1700 years of blasphemy(Ignorance on your part, “Lord open his eyes, not for my sake”). It’s the Holy Spirit of God that gives authority through scripture alone, and one without the true Holy Spirit of God, cannot attain this from scripture. I, honestly, can say, without a doubt, by God’s Grace, that “Scripture”(66 books inspired by God, and not the added testaments by the RCC. (And before you argue that one, talk to God about the miracle of the Holy Scriptures. it’s what He gave us)) it is true, reliable, and authoritative. Only because I am a child of God, by the Grace of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. “The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:” “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” Check yourself friend, “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

          • richp

            First of all, I am approaching senior citizen status, but please do not state that I am over 1700 years old. Frankly, I am tired. Very tired of you Apostate “Protestants” claiming that you have the Holy Spirit, that you and you alone have the authority to interpret Sacred Scripture, the Word of God that comes to us from His One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. It is the Church, the Apostolic Church, the One Church of Christ, the Body of Christ, under Peter, whom Christ Himself placed in authority over His visible Body on Earth, that compiled the Books together that we call the Holy Bible. You Protestants do not have a Bible. The Bible belongs to the Church and you left Sacred Scripture when you left the Church. The Bible came out of the Church, not the other way around. Each and every Scripture quote you pick and choose to support your claim of the day has its roots in the Catholic Church. We know that Sacred Scripture is the Word of God only via the authority of the Catholic Church who says so. Please cease and desist your sacrilege and blasphemy in claiming otherwise. Do you think Christ is pleased with you who malign HIs Church and enslave His Sacred Word to serve as the foundation of your arrogance? I maintain that it is you who needs to beg God’s forgiveness and submit to HIs authority over you : “I am the Lord your God, you shall not have strange Gods before Me”.

          • Mike

            In 1302 pope Boniface said this in a letter to the church “furthermore, we declare, we proclaim, we define that it is absolutely necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject to the Roman pontiff. Pope Boniface VIII Unam Sactam. Pope pious V said “The pope and God are the same, So he has all power in heaven and earth” pope pious V, quoted in Barclay, cities petrus Bertanous, chapter xxvii 218. Pope Leo xiii said this about the role of pope “we hold upon this earth the place of God almighty” praeclara Gratulationis pulicae-the reunion of christiandom (Rome 1894)

          • Bigg Dee

            Correct: Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus. As taught by Holy Mother Church. No where is either pontiff claiming he is Christ incarnate, as you claimed. Christ established the papacy, as you conveniently dismiss Mathew 16:18 as a teaching authority, i.e. the boss of “loosing and binding”. Please answer my questions on codification of Sacred Scripture.

          • paul roman

            For Christ sakes Mike! Why are you fixated with the term Catholic? The Catholic Church is the Christian Church. We call it Catholic to differentiate from all the false churches. Catholics are the body of Christ. We should just call ourself the Christian Church to remove small minded confusion. That church you read about in the Acts of the Apostles onwards in the Catholic Church!

          • Janeth Elizabeth De Ruiz

            According to the very book you’re referring to, Acts 1, The 1st Christians were Jews, (NOT Romans,) who remained Jewish IN Jerusalem, including the apostle Peter. Then, in chapter 9, we read about the apostle of the non-Jews–that’s us–Paul, who WAS a roman citizen but before that, a self-proclaimed Jew of Jews. He went on to become the 1st missionary, planting churches in every city he went to, until he was also killed in Rome. So, no, Peter was not called to preach to the gentiles and start a separate religion from the Jewish one he practiced…he was called to stay in Jerusalem and tend God’s “original” chosen people/sheep.

          • richp

            Hey, Paul, watch your mouth. As a Catholic you should know that you shalt not take the name of the Lord in vain.

            The leader of the church in Jerusalem was not Peter it was James Jesus’s brother Acts 12:17; 15:13-21; 21:18; Gal. 2:9-12, it’s funny how the Catholic Church bases everything off of one verse, why not read down to verse 23 in Matthew 16 where Jesus calls Peter Satan, you have to lineup Scripture with Scripture, you got to read the context of what was written I could come up with many different teachings from random versus. Have you ever noticed how John the apostle who wrote the book of Revelation when he sees Jesus he falls on his face and the relationship between Jesus and to be loved apostle is not at all what it was on earth, The reason being that Jesus Christ/God sees all of us the same, created beings. He is Almighty God creator of all, the relationship between God and man is only possible through Jesus Christ and only in Him can we stand before the creater. There is no other name by which we must be saved, why would I listen to a church authority who contradicts scripture again and again and again

          • richp

            The Church is the Mystical Body of Christ. People are “of God” when they are united to Christ’s Body, the Catholic Church. Heresy separates Protestants from Christ and His Church.

          • Mike

            You are badly mistaken, Christs body are those who have acknowledged and repented of their sin and trusted Christs sacrifice for their sin. It is not heresy that separates us from Christ, it is unrepentance. Do you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are saved and going to heaven? I do because I base it on the word of God and what Christ has done on the cross, he said it is finished and that meant His work was complete. The Bible is complete and no other ride is your daddy can you get ou The Bible is complete and no other Writings need to be added to it

          • richp

            I will ask you what the Church has been asking Protestants for ages but which Protestants have never provided an answer, even during this conversation here: How do you know that the Bible is the Word of God? By whose authority has it been declared as such? I await an answer other than “Cuz the Bible says so”.

          • Mike

            How do I know that the Bible is true? Because archaeologists are slowly finding more and more evidence every year, that certain people groups certain cities specific things that are written in the word of God actually existed. Many sources other than the Bible point to Jesus being a real and true figure of history. The Bible itself says that we should test everything. the Bible passes the test of time and more and more evidence is being found for it. 1 Corinthians’s 1:18 says For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

          You are truly mistaken sdk14754977, Roman Catholicism is the killer of Christians and your Pope has the spirit of Anti-Christ abiding in him. I have been preaching against the Pagan Catholic church for over 36 years and have studied it close enough to know how evil it is. The Catholic church hijacked Christianity 400 years after the the church was formed. I know what they did to the real church and it is so disgusting I can not bring myself to print it here.There are many martyrs in Heaven because of the Catholic church, it is a violent organization, and God help those who are still in it. -Rev. Robert Foster

          • Janeth Elizabeth De Ruiz

            That’s right! The 1st Christians were Jews, (NOT Romans,) who remained Jewish IN JERUSALEM, (NOT Rome,) according to the history book of ACTS chapter 1

          • richp

            Rev., with all due respect, you are abysmally mistaken and have spent a good chunk of your life doing the work of the anti- Christ. There is only ONE Church, founded by our Lord Jesus Christ. The fact that many in authority throughout history were wicked sinners is for God to judge and deal with, but it takes nothing away from the spotless Lamb, Jesus Christ, her founder, nor from the Church, His Mystical Body, which remains pure and holy to this day.

          • Elizabeth Liggio

            Robert what you said is true and when I think of the Catholic Church I recall how many priests in these Catholic Churches have sinned (having sex relations with innocent children) one of the most evil things a human can do and so they represent Gods teaching? Sickening.

            as for those who do disagree and still do I ask you to look at what early Christians believed and what some had to say like Justin Martyr, Clement of Alexandria, and the author of the Epistle to Diognetus and Augustine of Hippo. They argued for and believed far more many things that catholics do rather than protestants. Also i think this video is helpful

          Dear Sister,
          Thank-you for your apologetics! It is astounding that so many people, including Catholics reinterpret the Bible and are ignorant of our faith. Jesus came to earth to leave us a road map to heaven and eternity with God. We must be baptized. Spread the good news. Receive communion and go to confession once a year because Jesus told us to in the Bible. He also said we must follow the ten commandments and added a new one. We must love our neighbor as ourselves. It is important that we donate and work for the poor. Jesus did not ask Ceasar to support the poor. He asked us as individuals in his Kingdom on Earth to do good works and listen to the Pope and our priests who follow in the foot steps as Jesus asked. What the Pope says is bound on Earth is also bound in heaven. Seek salvation in the One True Church Jesus institute d for our help and salvation.

        • Michael L

          Salvation is in Christ, not bread. Do you really think He meant for us to ‘transform’ bread
          into Christ under the appearance that it is still bread? Did Christ heal the blind under the
          appearance that they are still blind? “Our Lady in Fatima…..?” Read a Bible. You must be
          “born again.” Keep reading the Word.

        • Lorenda Rae

          Jesus is the rock. Not Peter. The church is built on Jesus and Jesus alone. God’s temple is our body. Not a building and not the Catholic Church. We do not need prayer beads, we do not need a Pope, no Pope and no Priest is holy. Only Jesus who is alone without sin is holy. Mary is not to be prayed to, she also was a sinner just like you and I and she is not a mediator. Our salvation is in Christ alone. Mary is dead in her grave until the day of the Lord when he comes to raise us all to life with him in eternity. Read the bible. All I have said is scriptural and stay away from books like the Catholic Bible which take away and add to the words of our Lord God Jesus Christ. The Catholic church is a political regime and is based on Pagan worship. Jesus lives in us and Jesus people are found in all walks of life and his temple is you and me. Not a building and not a political group who controls people with guilt and pagan rituals. Our salvation is in Christ Jesus.

          About the Eucharist, the Host and the Wine; if you would eat lot of Hosts your body would gain weight. Because the Bread is transformed into your body. And if you would drink a lot of the Wine, your would get drunk, because that Wine is transformed into your blood. In that sense it is true that the Bread and Wine are transformed into the body and blood of God as man. But it won’t do you any good unless you believe this.

    T IS WHAT IT IS because itzallconnected.

    KNOW THY SELF was carved into stone by the Ancient Egyptians as both a lesson, and a reminder. Sexism, racism, and colorism are pre-programmed, mental, illnesses founded, and grounded, in extremely low self-esteem. As you fan the flow of the wind beneath (y)our wings, study up on which way is up. Capitalism is as evil as spelling live backwards. Integrity is what holds (y)our mind, (y)our health, (y)our life, and every kind of community [society] together. Even diabolical genius must be sustainable. The little blue pill is not working well for the good ole boys in blue who stole “the blues.” In all ways, protecting the credo of [white], male supremacy has been more important than human decency, truth and justice.

    If it wasn’t so tragic, it would be hilarious. Life was everlasting long before “the church” found a way to package, and sell “it.” Intension is to (y)our spirit what bone marrow is to (y)our skeleton. If (y)our belief system supports any kind of slavery [mental, physical, doctrinal], (y)our religious mindset is still immoral. There is no escaping (y)ourSelf. Every blind-dead, war-like, violent, community [society] that refuses to balance the scales of justice while “decriminalizing injustice” must fade to black while being “whited-out,” or ostracized.

    Obviously, there must be a WHITE ONLY sign on the gates of every hole-in-hole. The “original sin” is still a belief that any One, or any thing, can “act-U-ally” be made separated from The All-of-it; Creation–itzSelf. The belief in “white [male] supremacy” has reduced the majority of pale-skinned [white and imitation white] people to living lies who have chosen to die in The Lie.

    Some “things” must be absorbed. An expanded consciousness “can-knot” be stolen, imitated, transferred, denied, or destroyed. An “opened mind” can only be masked, or “whited out” by The Blind Dead who see what they want to see and hear what they are supposed to already know. And, yet, we are all a wonder-full part of The All-of-it. We come from KnowThing. We return to KnowThing. KnowThing lasts forever.

      Interesting. I have lived for 42 years on this planet as a white male (in the SOUTH of all things!) and have only had a serious conversation about white supremacy with two people. One white guy who used to be KKK but quite because he woke up, and a black roommate I had who used to be Nation of Islam, but quit that because he woke up. In 42 years, living in several states, and having several careers, I have not run into any real white supremacists. This just sounds like a kind of McCarthyism and a way of blaming a non-existent issue for all of your problems. Are you trying to make me believe a very small number of skinhead losers are somehow running the whole planet and suppressing minorities, when they can’t even put together a rally with more than a couple hundred people in their supposed strongholds?

      Bullcrap. As a Catholic I can inform you that we have the most personal relationship possible, the relationship that Christ Himself stated was required to have life within us: “Unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood…”. We worship and consume Christ at Mass in the Host, the Blessed Sacrament, the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ. Moreover, we need to be in spiritual union with Christ (free of mortal sin), in order to receive the Host, Holy Communion.
      It is Protestants who have no personal relationship with Christ, as you reject His Kingship and His flawless teachings in both Scripture and thru His one, holy Catholic and apostolic Church in lieu of your own arrogant interpretations and fraudulent assemblies.

    Many Catholics do not know how they are deceived, nor do many other church’s/denominations. There is only ONE CHURCH and JESUS is the Head not a man or woman. Jesus sits on His Throne in Heaven next to the Father ever interceding for His Body of believers on the earth called the CHURCH.
    When one partakes of the bread and the wine, Jesus said “remember Me”. A reminder not literally His flesh and blood but a ceremony not ritual to remember Who Jesus is and how He saved you and what He did for you (taking on our sins and defeating them to forgive us and take us Home to Heaven with Him where He existed since eternity began as the Word of God Who spoke all things into existence.

    Praying for the dead??? “Let the dead bury the dead” Jesus said when too much focus was on the dead one rather than doing God’s will and living where God’s life is.

    Pergatory???? Paradise was taken to Heaven when Jesus defeated Satan and took the keys to Hell and the grave away from Satan. The old testament saints trusted in the Messiah to come. When He came they could go home because He paid the price for all of mankind’s sins since Adam fell in the first sin. Lucifer fell in rebellion he generated and dragged mankind down but God sent His eternal Son in an earth suit called Jesus to bring mankind back to God by His own sacrifice of Himself as the Lamb of God. NO MORE is sacrifice needed to be saved – ONLY available through Jesus.
    Mary on the same plane as Jesus???? The created on the same plane as the CREATOR?? NOO! Only God could save mankind by coming to earth and Mary, as wonderful a woman as she was, is saved by Jesus and herself a sinner like us.

    Praying to the saints also?? ALL mankind fell in sin and the saints are saints not by edict of a man but by those following Christ and wanting to overcome their sins through Jesus strength. Paul knew this well – “when I am weak then I am strong.” He in context glorified God not himself. He called himself “the chief of sinners”. Who to pray to God Who is perfect or man only made perfect by the blood and sacrifice of Jesus?? GOD of course. Man can not diefy man nor self our being like Jesus is dependent wholly on Jesus recreating our spirit man as we repent of sin and accept Jesus as the ONLY SAVIOR of mankind and His gift of Salvation given to us. Receive the gift and God knows you, reject the GIFT and God does not know you and you can not be with God in Heaven. SIMPLE! “By God’s Grace are you saved, not of works, so no man can boast (and bypass the Way to Heaven Jesus)”

    Fascinating how many Hail Mary’s go on and how little HAIL JESUS goes on.

    EUROPEAN UNION a union without Jesus The Lord……get OUT OF IT.

  • Thomas Poovathinkal SSP

    LET US ALL PRAY that POPE FRANCIS the REPRESENTATIVE of JESUS The LORD on EARTH, ONCE at LEAST before his death may ACT LIKE PETER in THE ACTS of The APOSTLES of God’s Word and thus BE AN INSPIRATION to ALL CHRISTIAN WORLD.

  • Thomas Poovathinkal SSP

    NOT Clever MEN but only TRUE APOSTLES of The Lord can EVANGELIZE THE WORLD. Let us LEARN it from SUCH APOSTLES OF THE LORD as we have them in THE DIVINE and THE SEHION Retreat Centres in Kerala, INDIA. (SEE the BRANCHES of The Divine Retreat Centre below.)

    GOD’S PEOPLE should be UNITED in every way. ONLY this will bring God’s
    PEACE on earth.

    IF EVIL is thriving and conquering the World, the Christian World is
    RESPONSIBLE for it. God PUNISHED SIN in the past and continues to do the
    same in the present. If God has deprived us of all our HOLY places related
    to The Son of God, our being like THE PHARISEES is the reason for it. The
    Word of God in O.T. is full of EVIDENCE of the punishment for SIN : Adam
    and Eve were PUNISHED, The KILLER of Abel, Cain was PUNISHED, Sodom
    Gomorrah was PUNISHED; the story and the FACT continues…even to the
    present.

    PEACE comes only with SALVATION, and the only Savior is JESUS THE LORD. The
    Christian World has been CRUCIFYING THE SON OF GOD through and through,
    whereas some Jews did it just ONCE in the whole history of the World.

    Basically The Christian World is like THE PHARISEES of the Lord’s times.
    The Word of God says in Luke 7, 29-30 : “All the people, even the tax
    collectors, when they heard Jesus’ words, acknowledged that God’s way was
    right, because they had been baptized by John. But the Pharisees and the
    experts in the law rejected God’s purpose for themselves, because they had
    not been baptized by John.” SUCH as above is the case with the LEADERS of
    the CHRISTIAN World as a whole; they in TRUTH are NOT TRUE APOSTLES of The
    Lord in PRACTICE and they call themselves BISHOPS! But in theory they claim
    to have inherited the OFFICES of the true Apostles of The Lord.

    Those who take THEMSELVES as righteous or redeemed are not necessarily so.
    But those whom The Lord approves ARE. Salvation from The Lord comes with
    REPENTANCE and forgiveness which the Lord himself and The Baptist too
    PROCLAIMED.

    Salvation comes from the Word of God PROCLAIMED by the TRUE APOSTLES of The
    Lord (The Lord has been PROMOTING more and more people to APOSTLESHIP;
    After the original 12, the Lord brought in the 72 disciples and made them
    APOSTLES and sent them two by two to proclaim his Word. Later after the
    Lord’s DEATH, he called Saul who became PAUL; this PROCESS had been going
    on, so much so it is said, in the PRIMITIVE Church every Christian was an
    APOSTLE) as we have them in our MODERN World in THE DIVINE and THE SEHION
    Retreat Centres, Kerala, INDIA. Find the detail on GOOGLE.

    The current Pope is one of the wisest men of all time. He advocates for a one World government bse of the failure by current government systems to offer equity to the most vulnerable. His views cannot be supported by the likes of Putin bse they would loose their grip on monopoly over leadership in individual territory .

  • ABBAsFernando

    Putin has a point. Th so-called Christian Catholic Church actually was part of the rat line smuggling WWII NAZIS out of Europe to safety for years.

    By the time of Constantine won one of the many Civil Wars of the Roman empire the original Church of Jesus Christ had been destroyed from the face of the Earth. All priesthood authority ceased to exist. The authority to act in place for God
    was lost.

    The resulting Universal Church or Catholic was created entirely by committee empaneled by Constantine. Doing the best they could under the circumstances they did not reestablish Jesus Christ’s Church. The organization created was a political guess. At the time over 300 separate “Christian” churches existed. Nobody knew the original intent. So they guessed.

    Any political organization becomes corrupt over time. Many of today’s churches are infested with fascist agents planted to distort and deceive. All to accomplish the goals of communist party USA. Enemy of Jewish – Christian morality. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c16c6e0d74f92aafb0285d0a3334373b6c732979f04fbb45c4a4128025bd3ef5.jpg

    the pope is just a sensible human being. but he’s under the ingenious evil spell of marxism. locked in a big church, he’s basically blind to the world. had i been locked out of the web forums(by mostly conservative and pseudo-liberal moderators, and never started my own private no-hold-barred forum, i would have exactly the same “sensible” ideas the pope has, and letting the doomed world to repeat and accelerate history to a quick abort.

    Not one of man’s religions teaches the truth. The religions of man have pinned their false Sabbath to a pagan calendar that didn’t exist prior to the year 46 BC. Nothing Christianity does can be found in the word of our Father. Judaism follows a lunar calendar for which they no scriptural instructions or commands to formulate. Jesus? The letter J has never existed in the Hebrew language. In fact, the letter J didn’t exist in any language until the late 16th century. Just in time to deceive the masses with a false name for the Messiah and break the 1st and 3rd commandments. Wake up folks, time is short.

        There is a lot more. Messiah Yahusha sacrificed himself on HIS Sabbath, the day of Passover. I have a Facebook group to teach the calendar of Enoch at the link below. This calendar system is the only means of identifying the true Sabbath of our Father. Everything presented in the group is exactly per the instructions of Enoch, Jubilees and Torah.

  • http://godwillbeheard.blogspot.com/ dishalo

    I totally Agree with Putin….I never thought I would say that but the Pope’s words and actions have made it possible, without grave sin, to make this judgment.

    Before I get slammed about judging:
    Webster’s defines the act of judging as “to form an opinion about through careful weighing of evidence and testing of premises.” Simply stated, judging is simply the process of evaluation that people naturally employ every day to make determinations of what is true: we judge when we need to leave to arrive on time to a particular destination; we judge what we should wear based on what
    the weather is for the day; we judge the credibility of others, etc.

    Although God alone is the Judge, this does not mean that only God judges. In fact, the Word of God says that God enables man to judge, commands man to judge, and is pleased with those who seek to judge righteously.

    Scripture also shows that God considers the exercise of judgement to be evidence of our seeking truth (Jeremiah 5:1). The fact that the desire to judge righteously is highly esteemed by God is clearly illustrated in I Kings 3:9-13. In verse 9, King Solomon asks, “Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?” We see here that Solomon asked God for discernment to judge between good and bad. This request not only pleased the Lord, but God blessed Solomon greatly for asking for the wisdom to judge.

    In the New Testament, we continue to see that God expects us to exercise judgement. Jesus Himself criticized the Pharisees for being unable to judge the spiritual things of God and the importance of judging spiritual matters continued to be stressed throughout His disciples’ ministries(Matthew 16:3;Luke 12:56-57; John 7:24; Acts 4:19; I Corinthians 2:15; I Corinthians 5:3; I Corinthians 6:2-5; I Corinthians 10:15; I Corinthians 14:29; Hebrews 5:14). Further, we are told that it is to our shame if there is none among us who can judge the things of God. God also states that judgement is considered one of the weightier aspects of God’s law, even more than offerings(Matthew 23:23; Luke 11:14).

    I would like to say one thing, the Pope alone is not the Catholic Church. There have been bad Popes before but GOD will correct and set straight again the Church He founded.

  • Marsha Anderson

    Yeah, Putin is telling the truth about the pope. It will never be dangerous nor harmful to have a relationship with Jesus!

  • Cari

    Its worse than what we see, The Pope uses the Climate Change Agenda to push his devious agenda like enforcing the Sunday law…among others

  • John Francis

    Putin is so right! The pope supposedly is the lord of the world, but Christ, whose vicar he boasts of being, said, ‘My kingdom is not of this world.’ Can the dominions of a vicar extend beyond those of his superior? When the early church became corrupted by departing from the simplicity of the gospel, and accepting heathen rites and customs, she lost the Spirit and power of God; and in order to control the consciences of the people she sought the support of the secular power. The result was the papacy, a church that controlled the power of the State, and employed it to further her own ends, especially for the punishment of “heresy.” The pope’s pardons are a cheat, purgatory is a fable and his arrogant claims to be “the Holy Father” are nothing short of blasphemy. The Scriptures faithfully warn us against approaching God through any other mediator or advocate than Jesus Christ.

  • Jurgen Braunohler

    Now that is very, very interesting. It seems that those of us who are done with nationalism and want to go global instead, are growing in numbers. The Pope has nailed some things. Nationalism will still be around for a while. But it is an outdated concept, and it’s time for humanity to move on.

  • FotbalC

  • Don L

    The real question is why Putin would publicly say all this–he’s neither stupid or without cause.
    Does Putin (ex-KGB and head of a world’s largest atheist state) see an advantage for himself with the Catholic Church openly in conflict between traditional Catholics and liberalism?

  • CumExApostolatus

    When you say ‘saint Jacob’ do you mean St. James?

  • LodeHere

    Any proof Putin said that? Who is the source of the information?

  • CumExApostolatus

    St. Augustine said:
    “Send me, Lord, send to my heart the sweetness, the moderation of your spirit, so that, led by love of truth, I may not lose the truth of love.” And he who does not have the truth of love, does not have the love of truth!
    San Francisco de Sales teaches:
    “The truth that is not charitable ceases to be truth, for in God, who is the supreme source of truth, charity is inseparable from truth.”
    Charity is what will keep us in the doctrine. Legion are people who lost charity also lost the truth.
    Our zeal must never resemble hatred, treating the adversary as an enemy. And this happens to us when our impetuous words do not have the fervor of charity or the accent of love.
    The true children of God never endure evil doctrines, but they are tolerant without measure towards people; Never confuse error with those who teach it, nor sin with those who commit it.
    However, let us never lose sight of the fundamental principle that UNITY of DOGMA and not UNITY OF PEOPLE, is the only link of peace on earth.
    Who truly benefits (cui bono?) from the divide and conquer tactic of the Catholic Church?

  • Fay

    I have sadly had to “observe” how the “Roman” catholic church operated in Africa – allowing thousands of young black school children attending their Mission Schools to be kidnapped and sent away for training in order that their student, Robert Mugabe could become President of Zimbabwe. How they “expected” poor Africans to give their meager pittances to the church on their deathbeds – filled their congregations with fear in order to control them. Zimbabwe as we all now know is a “failed state” and ready to be invaded by the New World Order to be plundered for it’s resources, like all other countries around the world that have been forced into debt by George Soros, Jacob Rothschild and Bill Gates – in order to force us all into this world-order slavery/colonialism – just because these greedy individuals don’t have the intelligence, foresight or Mind to understand how God’s Universe really functions. “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” Proverbs 20:18 And the law is not according to how the mere human mind thinks. It is how the Divine Mind knows. To “Know” is true Science; to “Know” is true Religion = Universal – All in All, no exceptions. “I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.” Isaiah 45:23 We can believe all we like in the doctrines of human churches, organizations, but in the end “If then God so clothe the grass, which is to-day in the field, and to-morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?” Quantum Physics even explains: “Observer bias (also called experimenter bias or research bias) is the tendency to see what we expect to see, or what we want to see. When a researcher studies a certain group, they usually come to an experiment with prior knowledge and subjective feelings about the group being studied.” Conclusion: the very best Observer should be the Divine Mind – the manifestation will then be governed by the Divine Law referred to above: “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” Proverbs 20:18
