'Pope' Francis and the SSPX's Dance towards Eternal Death!

Image result for bishop fellay

The SSPX (Sometimes called Leferbvrists) is a group founded by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre in the 1970s to resist the changes made by the Second Vatican Council. SSPX has ordained many priests and have consecrated 4 bishops using the true Catholic rite of ordination and consecration, which was invalidated by the Novus Ordo/Vatican II religion.

The SSPX resistance to Vatican II lacks logic and theological soundness but many good people are in the SSPX because they cannot stand the apostasy being spread by Novus Ordo/Vatican II religion. But given the illogicality in SSPX, many members have realized that they very things they reject, they accept through the back door!

For instance they reject ‘papal’ teachings arising from Vatican II and accepts that the sacramental rites of the Novus Ordo religion are valid and yet they ask their followers not go partake in them! According to the SSPX, Francis despite being an apostate is the pope in the Catholic Church!

Because of this acceptance, they have Francis picture in their rectory worldwide and they seek to be physically united with Novus Ordo religion despite rejecting the core of its teachings.

This is illogicality par excellence!

Given the devilish ploy of Novus Ordo religion, the SSPX is sinking deeper and deeper in the rivers of Novus Ordo religion as it accepts edits and pronouncements of Novus Ordo religion concerning them. They fail to learn from history. Many organizations like them have been deceived into joining Novus Ordo and today, they are forced to promote the apostasy and invalid sacraments.

However, within the ‘rank and file’ of SSPX authority, there is a serious discord as to how to deal with Novus Ordo religion, especially as it beckons on it to be merged fully with the ongoing apostasy!

The Superior general of the SSPX, Bishop Bernard Fellay, enthusiastically pursue merging the SSPX with Novus Ordo religion to quit pretenses of some form of resistance. He is in effect saying that SSPX should stop pretending to reject Novus Ordo Religion since it is part of it. All physical separations should now be mended. Some Bishops working with him sink into deafening silence as to what their personal positions are.

These Bishops may explode someday as one of the Bishops did in the past. Bishop Williamson, a member of the SSPX openly pretested Bishops Fellay’s dialogue with apostate Rome and joined a break away from called SSPX of the Strict observance or SSPX Marian Corp. Since then Bishop Williamsons has been publishing many shocking theologically unsound ideas to both reject Novus Ordo religion and reject the administration of Bishop Fellay in the SSPX. But Williamson himself and his group operate also in illogicality suggesting that the man, Francis who they ridicule and abhor is also the pope!
Talk about illogicality!
But what lies beneath may yet explode and led to a total obliteration of the SSPX!

On Sunday, May 7, seven deans (heads of deaneries) of the Society of St. Pius X French district read from the pulpit a statement, addressed to the faithful, in which they express their rejection of the Vatican’s “concession” regarding SSPX marriages, which they demonstrate to be a dangerous and subversive Roman ploy. The deans’ letter also warns against any impending agreement with the Modernist Vatican.

Not surprisingly, the French District Superior, Fr. Christian Bouchacourt, wasted no time to act: In agreement with Superior General Bp. Bernard Fellay, the seven deans in question have already been demoted, their declaration condemned. French SSPX adherents have been told not to disseminate the deans’ letter but put it in the trash instead. Will this suffice to quell a potential uprising among the French Lefebvrists?

Let’s review in some detail what has happened.

Recent news from and about the Society of St. Pius X, founded in 1970 by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre (1905-1991), have confirmed that an official recognition of the Lefebvrian society by the Modernist Vatican is definitely in the works and could take place before the year is over.

On Jan. 29, 2017, Bp. Fellay appeared on a French internet TV station saying that all that’s missing from a formal reconciliation between his Society and the Vatican under Francis is the latter’s “stamp of approval” and a “guarantee” that they can basically continue as they are now.

On Mar. 3, Bp. Fellay related that the Vatican’s Prefect of the so-called Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, “Cardinal” Gerhard Ludwig Muller, had told him that the Vatican desires the SSPX to return to full communion “so that you may help us fight the Modernists”! That Bp. Fellay would even take such an absurd claim seriously says a lot of about the judgment of the man who has now been Superior General for almost 23 years.

On Mar. 17, the German Die Tagespost paper published an interview with the secretary of the Vatican’s Ecclesia Dei Commission, “Mgr.” Guido Pozzo, who stated that “the Holy Father is pressing forward towards a positive and constructive attitude of dialogue” and is clearly eager to see the SSPX rejoin the Vatican II Church, from which it was formally separated in 1988.

On Apr. 4, the Vatican issued a putative concession to the SSPX with regard to the witnessing of marriages. However, unlike the common misconception that the SSPX has now been granted faculties from Rome to be able to validly officiate marriages, the facts are actually a bit different, as the French deans’ letter correctly points out. According to the cunning Vatican document, Novus Ordo bishops have now been given permission from Rome to allow SSPX priests to officiate at weddings under the condition that a Novus Ordo priest “cannot” do so. If a Novus Ordo priest can be found to do so, he is to officiate at the wedding, although the Mass itself may be celebrated by an SSPX priest in either case. We have analyzed and exposed the trickery of this document here.

The Society of St. Pius X’s response to this Vatican maneuver was very positive. In an official communiqué released on Apr. 11, the SSPX administration rejoiced that their marriages were now “not only valid, but incontestable” — ignoring the inconvenient fact that “Pope” Francis is the last person on earth you’d want evaluating the validity of marriages.

The most recent piece of news regarding the ongoing SSPX-Vatican soap opera is the following statement by “Mgr.” Pozzo, released today:
The reconciliation will occur when Monsignor Fellay formally adheres to the doctrinal declaration that the Holy See presented to him. This is also the necessary condition to then proceed to the institutional regularization with the creation of a personal prelature. I have noticed that there is not a controversial spirit but [a] constructive [one]. The different points of view or opinions we have on some issues do not necessarily need to lead to division, but to a mutual enrichment. I have realized that it is a priority for them to overcome this fracture with the Holy See. For them, it’s a priority over other concerns.

Another one of those “mutual enrichment” deals — heaven help us!

Apparently sensing that a formal reconciliation between their order and Modernist Rome is imminent, seven priests of the SSPX French district, all of them deans, read a statement from the pulpit this past Sunday which rejects the Vatican’s “concession” regarding the celebration of marriages and calls into question any rapprochement with the Vatican under the current conditions in general.

The statement was published only on the French news site Medias Presse Info:
An English translation of this document has now been provided by The Remnant:
Perhaps the most explosive part of the statement is the last two paragraphs, which read:

Finally, permit me to express my astonishment at the reaction to this Roman decision. The Personal Prelature which is being dangled before the eyes of the Society of Saint Pius X was supposed to recognize us as we are, and to maintain our independence vis-à-vis the local Ordinaries. However, the first decisions taken consist in unjustly submitting our marriages to these very Ordinaries, while tomorrow the opening of any new Houses will have to meet their approval. This shows to what extent double-speak reigns supreme not only in the domain of Faith and Morals, but even in these canonical matters.

Also, in this Centenary Year of the apparitions of Fatima, we invoke the Immaculate Heart of Mary, not so that She will end our canonical situation which is judged irregular by some, but so that the Church may be freed from Its Modernist occupation and that the highest authorities may once more find the path followed by the Church up to Vatican II. Then our bishops will be able to place their episcopacy in the hands of the Sovereign Pontiff.

It is evident that rejecting the Vatican’s overture regarding SSPX marriages, accusing Rome of undermining the SSPX by means of “double-speak”, and talk of a “Modernist occupation” from which the Church must first “be freed” before “our bishops will be able to place their episcopacy in the hands of the Sovereign Pontiff”, is hardly conducive to the negotiations Bp. Fellay is in the process of finishing up with Francis and his gang.

The seven priests who signed and read this declaration were joined by three other associated clerics. Their names and ranks are:
  • Abbé David ALDALUR, dean of Bordeaux
  • Abbé Xavier BEAUVAIS, dean of Marseille
  • Abbé François-Xavier CAMPER, dean of Lyons
  • Abbé Bruno FRANCE, dean of Nantes
  • Abbé Thierry GAUDRAY, dean of Lille
  • Abbé Patrick de LA ROCQUE, dean of Paris
  • Abbé Thierry LEGRAND, dean of Saint-Malo
  • P. JEAN-MARIE, superior of the Fraternité de la Transfiguration
  • P. PLACIDE, prior of the Benedictine monastery of Bellaigue
  • P. ANTOINE, guardian of the Capuchin monastery of Morgon

The very same day this statement was released and read from the pulpit, May 7, the French District Superior, Fr. Bouchacourt, responded:
Fr. Bouchacourt’s rejoinder does not address any of the objections of the deans’ statement. Rather, he condemns “the subversive manner in which this declaration was disseminated”: “Prepared in secret, among some select colleagues, in order to surprise, destabilize, and place before the superiors an accomplished fact, it takes the faithful hostage and constitutes them judges of their priests and superiors.”

He laments the quarrels between people this will cause and upbraids the authors of the letter for going straight to the faithful with their concerns about the Vatican’s directive concerning Lefebvrist marriages, rather than bringing them before the SSPX leadership.

Afterwards, the French District Superior released some of his own (presumably SSPX-approved) theological reflections on the Vatican’s document regulating the celebration of their marriages:

Yesterday, on May 10, Fr. Bouchacourt sent a follow-up letter to all priests of his district, in which he announces that the seven rebellious SSPX deans have been removed from their positions and that Bp. Fellay has consented to this:

On May 11, the SSPX published an official press release, in various languages, concerning this matter:
My goodness, what a mess.

We recall that in 2014, a number of French SSPX families wrote to Bp. Fellay demanding, in no uncertain terms, his resignation: “We do not trust you any more, nor, especially, your advisors, Your Excellency. We no longer want you to control the Chariot of Tradition amidst the turmoil of our disordered world.”

Is the latest act of rebellion, that of the seven deans, just another symptom of a big explosion waiting to happen? Time will tell. It is certain, however, that if the SSPX reconciles with Rome under Francis, there will absolutely be a mass exodus of a good number of people, both clergy and laity. The question is just how many will actually leave.

The tension that exists within the SSPX over these issues arises from the fact that they hold to an absolutely absurd and self-refuting position. On the one hand, they claim to adhere to the traditional Catholic Faith, which, however, requires complete obedience to the Holy See in matters not only of doctrine but also of government and discipline. On the other hand, the Catholic Faith likewise requires that we not be subject to heretics, which the Vatican “authorities” clearly are.

But instead of concluding, which they must by logical necessity, that the “Catholic hierarchy” in the Vatican is a bunch of impostors, devoid of all authority, merely masquerading as Catholics, SSPXers insist on recognizing these people nevertheless as the true, valid, and legitimate Roman Catholic hierarchy, which, however, they then proceed to “resist” in every way. It is this stubborn recognition of the anti-Catholic “false apostles” (2 Cor 11:13) as the true Roman Catholic hierarchy that creates the perpetual tension in the SSPX, because the two poles — that of resistance to heretics on the one hand and that of submission to legitimate Catholic authority on the other — are irreconcilable with one another.

The only way to resolve this conundrum without doing violence to traditional Catholic teaching is to embrace Sedevacantism, that is, to acknowledge that the Chair of St. Peter is currently vacant (i.e. there is no Pope) and the Modernists in the Vatican are not members of the Catholic Church at all, much less authorities to whom Catholics are required to submit. Here we see once again to what great confusion and chaos the stubborn will to avoid Sedevacantism at all costs, leads.

Bp. Fellay has been Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X since 1994. His second term expires in the summer of 2018. If he wants to be the one to hand over the SSPX to Francis, he doesn’t have much time left. We might be seeing fireworks soon!

Get the popcorn ready. More action coming! Will SSPX join the apostasy fully or will its support of the apostasy remain hidden? Stay Tuned!

‘Pope’ Francis hates Our Lady of Fatima and he shows it in both words and action!

Image may contain: 1 person, standing 

The 100th Anniversary of Our Lady’s Appearance at Fatima was held on the 13th of May 2017. This date marked the day Mary, Mother of God appeared in Fatima to three shepherd children to warn them about, among other things the dangers the Catholic Church faces in the world. She admonished the world and stipulated what must be done to safeguard the Church from Masonic forces and to obtain world peace.

Surely, few of what Our lady revealed has been followed. Indeed the Novus Ordo/Vatican II religion which invaded and took over the official structures of the Catholic Church made sure that Our Lady was silenced. They even made Sister Lucy to disappear, probably killed, and replaced her with another woman posing as Sister Lucy. Read more here

Successive criminals posing as popes have worked with this impostor to suppress the message of Our Lady of Fatima. The great apostate, John Paul II even deceived many into believing that he was a Marian Pope while in actual fact he is the devil’s foot soldier waging war with Mary, and even attempting to destroy the rosary! Read more here

Right now, Francis is keeping up with this battle against Mary and yet those who are blind think that Francis is the pope in the Catholic Church. These people fail to see the clear signs of Francis’ hatred of Mary. But Francis went to Fatima to ‘celebrate’ the appearance of Mary and yet he showed himself to be a hater of Mary and he even carried out a false canonization for the two other children of Fatima, Francisco and Jacinta. Of course Catholics do not recognize these false canonizations since Francis has no such authority to canonize anybody.

What did the 'Pope' Francis say to those gathered to welcome him on his first day in Fatima? Was there any call for conversion and warning of a coming chastisement of mankind, which Our Lady said would happen if the faithful did not amend their lives and ask pardon for their sins?

Was there a plea to pray the daily Rosary as Our Lady asked at each of the apparitions? A call for the conversion of Russia that Our Lady predicted would spread Communism throughout the world unless it returned to the Catholic Church? An encouragement to practice devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and make the Five First Saturdays?

The answer to these questions is a resounding NO!

He did not do any of these things. Following in the steps of all the false Popes who have visited Fatima, Francis ignored these crucial parts of the message of Fatima. Instead, he turned the threat of a hovering chastisement into a message of  of his false ‘unity, mercy and peace.’

On the eve of May 13, after his arrival, he went so far as to openly ridicule the words of one of the seers he came to ‘canonize’. As a matter of fact, little Jacinta before she died said that Our Lady had lamented the immorality, bad marriages, immodest dress and impure priests. She added: ‘The Blessed Mother can no longer restrain the hand of her Divine Son from striking the world with just punishment for its many crimes.’

Francis to mock Jacinta asked the faithful of “which Mary?” were they pilgrims. There is the Mary venerated by the Church, Francis said, but also another Mary  “of our own making: One who restrains the arm of a vengeful God.’ In other words, the Mary whom Jacinta said was restraining the Hand of God  was of our on making and therefore false!  This is a bold statement showing a defiant response to the warning of the Mother of God!

He went on to say that God’s mercy always has to be put before judgment, and stressed that insisting on the punishing of sins without first speaking about them being forgiven by His mercy, is doing a “great injustice” to God’s grace.

These were his words: "Great injustice is done to God’s grace whenever we say that sins are punished by His judgment, without first saying – as the Gospel clearly does – that they are forgiven by His mercy!”

“Mercy has to be put before judgment and, in any case, God’s judgment will always be rendered in the light of His mercy,” he said, reading his remarks in Portuguese. “Obviously, God’s mercy does not deny justice, for Jesus took upon himself the consequences of our sin, together with its due punishment.”

So, Francis' message is a clear denial of a coming chastisement. According to him, the one who thinks the message of Fatima predicts a chastisement is inventing a different Mary than the one preached by the Church!

Despite this clear denial of Mary’s message many people still waved at Francis as he passed calling him ‘papa’ or ‘pope’.

These Fatima pronouncements of Francis shows us again that Francis hates Mary and is willing to battle Her at any given time.

We have to take a look at what has happened to the Fatima message so far.

Our Lady of Fatima: A Brief Overview
The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to three little shepherd children at a field called Cova da Iria at Fatima for a total of six different times, between May 13 and October 13, 1917. Although no Catholic is obliged to accept these apparitions as genuine, the Catholic Church judged them to be worthy of belief in 1930, and Popes Benedict XV, Pius XI, and Pius XII all gave their approval in some form or another.

On May 5, 1917, Pope Benedict XV had published a pastoral letter in which he directed his Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Gasparri, that the Litany of Loreto henceforth include an invocation to the Blessed Virgin Mary under the title “Queen of Peace” (Regina Pacis), so “that her most tender and benign solicitude may be moved and the peace we ask for be obtained for our agitated world” (Letter Il 27 Aprile 1915, par. 6). Europe was suffering greatly under the destructive force of the “Great War” (later to be named “World War I”), which had begun in 1914 during the last days of the pontificate of Pope Saint Pius X.

On May 13, 1917 — a mere eight days after Pope Benedict’s directive to add “Queen of Peace, pray for us” to the Litany of Loreto –, the Virgin Mary appeared for the first time at Fatima to Lucia dos Santos, aged 10, and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta Marto, aged 8 and 7, respectively, to begin to reveal to them what has since been known as the “Fatima message”. Our Lady told the children that she would continue to appear to them on the 13th day of every month in the same place, and she did.
A beautiful documentary, made in the late 1940s, explains and illustrates the events at Fatima in 1917. It can be watched here:

On July 13, the Virgin Mary entrusted to the children a secret consisting of three parts, which she asked should not be revealed until a future time, but definitely no later than 1960, because then it would be much clearer. The first two secrets were revealed by Sr. Lucia in 1941, at the command of the local bishop. They were:

First Secret: A vision of hell, “where poor sinners go”

Second Secret: How to save sinners from going to hell and obtain world peace; specifically: devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart; else: great sufferings for and persecutions of the Pope and the Church, another terrible war (World War II), annihilation of entire nations
The Third Secret, on the other hand, was so frightening that Sr. Lucia was not able to write it down right away when commanded to do so. When she eventually did, the secret was placed into a sealed envelope and given to Bp. José Alves Correia da Silva, the local ordinary of the diocese of Leiria, who did not read it but sent it to the Vatican when ordered to do so in the 1950s.

Since then, the world has awaited the revelation of the Third Secret of Fatima. It is not clear whether Pope Pius XII ever opened the envelope and read the secret, but he probably did not. We know that Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani at the Holy Office did, and when 1960 came around, the Catholic world was eagerly expecting that the Third Secret would be revealed.

But alas, by 1960, Antipope John XXIII was already occupying the Vatican structures and plotting the dismantling of Catholicism by means of his so-called Second Vatican Council. He had no interest in the Virgin of Fatima and flat-out refused to release the Secret. So did his successors, although on June 26, 2000, the Modernist Vatican under Antipope John Paul II decided to release a text they claimed was the Third Secret of Fatima, which, however, has since been thoroughly discredited by Novus Ordo author and journalist Antonio Socci in his 2007 book The Fourth Secret of Fatima. What’s noteworthy about Socci’s work is that he had originally intended to defend the Vatican’s version of the Third Secret and meant to refute the claim that the real Third Secret still remained hidden. In the course of his research, however, he was forced to change his mind by the sheer force of the evidence.

Socci’s book caused quite a ruckus in Rome, leading “Cardinal” Tarcisio Bertone to appear on Italian television trying to “prove” that the Vatican’s text was the authentic Third Secret, although he inadvertently proved the opposite, as demonstrated by semi-traditionalist author Christopher Ferrara in his 2008 response to Bertone and vindication of Socci, The Secret Still Hidden.
What, then, is the true Third Secret of Fatima? Simply put, we do not know for sure. 

For decades various claims and texts have been circulated, but in the opinion of the present writer, the most convincing of them is this one:

There will be a wicked council planned and prepared that will change the countenance of the Church. Many will lose the Faith; confusion will reign everywhere. The sheep will search for their shepherds in vain.
A schism will tear apart the holy tunic of My Son. This will be the end of times, foretold in the Holy Scriptures and recalled to memory by Me in many places. The abomination of abominations will reach its peak and it will bring the chastisement announced at La Salette. My Son’s arm, which I will not be able to hold back anymore, will punish this poor world, which must expiate its crimes.
One will only speak about wars and revolutions. The elements of nature will be unchained and will cause anguish even among the best [the most courageous]. The Church will bleed from all Her wounds. Happy are they who will persevere and search for refuge in My Heart, because in the end My Immaculate Heart will triumph.

Our Lady’s last apparition at Fatima took place on October 13, 1917. The Blessed Mother had announced beforehand that she would work a miracle to confirm the authenticity and underscore the urgency and seriousness of her words, and so an estimated 70,000 people came to the Cova da Iria in anticipation of the event. This is when the Miracle of the Sun occurred, of which photos have been published

It has now been 100 years since May 13, 1917. This was not only the beginning of the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima, however; it was also the very day on which Pope Benedict XV consecrated Mgr. Eugenio Pacelli, the future Pope Pius XII, a bishop. The Pope had just appointed Pacelli Apostolic Nuncio to Bavaria and wanted him to begin his work as soon as possible. For this reason, the consecration was carried out quickly, and the Feast of St. Robert Bellarmine was chosen for the occasion. It turned out that Pacelli was consecrated “at the very hour” that Our Lady’s first apparition took place, by the very Pope whom Jacinta would miraculously see in a vision “in a very large house” as “kneeling before a little table, weeping, with his head between his hands” (see Walter H. Peters, The Life of Benedict XV [Milwaukee, WI: Bruce Publishing, 1959], pp. 141, 217).

Pope Pius XII was truly the “Fatima Pope”: Not only was he made a bishop on the same day and hour of the first Fatima apparition; in 1944 he introduced the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary to the universal Roman calendar (August 22), he consecrated the people of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1952 (although not in union with all the bishops of the world) in his Apostolic Letter Sacro Vergente Anno, and he personally witnessed a repeat of the miracle of the sun in the Vatican Gardens, not once or twice, but as many as four times, in late October and early November 1950, around the time he solemnly proclaimed the dogma of the Assumption.

It is beyond all doubt that the last 100 years have seen the fulfillment of the various warnings and prophecies of Our Lady of Fatima. Let us increase our devotion to her and her Immaculate Heart, for the glory of God, for the salvation of souls, and for world peace.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!

Will your Church save you? A Look into the Devil’s plan

Image result for Church congregation

The most constant confrontation made by Protestants (in particular ‘pentecostals’) against Catholics is that your ‘Church will not save you’. The idea that the Church you belong to will not save you is now a mantra for religion indifferentism, peddled even by the very best educated people in Novus Ordo religion. This mantra is repeated as often as one asked people to become Catholic urgently.

The origin of this doctrine can be found in ‘pentecostalism’ as they look for avenues to explaining the ever expanding number of small religions calling themselves ‘Christian’ and ‘pentecostal’. Indeed they have said it often enough that it has become a standard ‘truth’ of ‘Modern Christianity’!

Tracing the reasons behind this doctrine, we see how crafty the Devil is and how people cooperate with him to lead them to hell for all eternity.

The Bible is full of references to the importance of the Church and how the Church is the ONLY avenue through which one can reach Christ. But majority of people reject Biblical teaching on this and claim that what leads to heaven is merely ‘Accepting Christ as Lord and Savior and having a personal relationship with Him’.

This line of doctrine looks true and even acceptable for any reasonable person. But there is a small problem that defeats this doctrine!

If one were to accept Christ, how can the person know that what he or she is accepting is the true Christ? If it is indeed the true Christ, how can the person then have a personal relationship with Him without being taught by the Church?

The argument collapses into a dictatorship of relativism! Here we are told that we have personal authority to determine what personal relationship with Christ means! We can accept any idea of Christ and then relate with this ‘personal Christ’!

What this doctrine says is that we do not need anyone to direct us to Christ in the true faith. In fact there is NOTHING like the true faith, objectively so called. What we have is subjective faith by the individual and it is true if the individual says so.
This is equivalent to saying that there are no objective moral principles. Each person ought to have a personal morality! This is nonsense. If individuals are to have ‘personal morality’, then how can we determine what is right or wrong?
If two people have two different ideas about what personal relationship with Christ means, how may we know which is true and that which is to be recommended?

A man who has a ‘personal relationship with Christ’ and then marries three wives is promoting a form of Christianity from the one I have.

Another who claims to have ‘personal relationship with Christ’ may decide that eating wild grass will increasing one’s closeness with Christ?

How can we decide which is true?

The Protestants says the bible is the standard for measuring. IF the bible is the standard of measuring who has personal relationship with Christ, whose interpretation of the Bible is to be followed? Once you ask this question, another absurd answer is given. People will say that the Holy Ghost will interpret the bible for you. But is it possible for the Holy Ghost to give two conflicting interpretations? Can two people claiming to have ‘personal relationship with Christ’ hold on to the same idea about that personal relationship? The answer is NO!

If the answer is no, then it is absurd and even foolish for someone to say that the Church will NOT save since it is the Church that teaches the truth which we use to form that personal relationship with Christ!

The book of Timothy (1 Tim 3:15) says that ‘the Church is the bulwark and pillar of the truth’. It did not say that the Church is the ‘bulwark of truths’. It says ‘truth’ which means that truth is ONE and it is ONE truth that leads to Christ and then to heaven.

If we admit that the Church has the truth, then we must admit that this truth is the truth of Christ and this means that the Church has a role to play in our salvation! Which, among the thousands of purported ‘churches’ has the truth? The one truth? This question is necessary since the truth has to be ONE. Ask yourself. Is it your ‘Church’ that holds the truth? If your Church is false, it means that it will teach you errors and half-truths and if you accept these errors and half-truths, then you CANNOT have any personal relationship with Christ! You CANNOT be saved on the last day!

You will be led astray!

These questions are hardly asked or answered by Protestants. Indeed, they are not even asked because it is an accepted doctrine that ‘the church will not save you’.

Today, there are many thousands of false ‘churches’, all claiming to be connected to Christ. How can that be possible? When each of them started just a few decades ago? Christ warned up in the Bible while He was establishing His Church on earth for the salvation of Souls. He said:

“For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect”, the Son of God warned (Mt 24:24).

And St. Paul predicted: “Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying: that all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity” (2 Thess 2:10-11).

This means that the false Christs and prophets are here spreading many false teachings and many millions, unthinkingly accept these false teachings without any critical examinations, rejecting the Church of Christ, the Bulwark of the truth. So God allows them to swim in errors!

There is no doubt that the Church will save us or damn us. Christ deliberately established just ONE CHURCH, which is now called ‘The Catholic Church’, for the salvation of all. If we do not need the Church why establish one? Clearly those who deny that the Church cannot save are agents of the Devil!

It is Christ that saves through the Church! The Church is the avenue of truly reaching Christ! You cannot clam to know the Bible and then claim to know Christ without the Church explaining to you how to reach Christ and this explanation happens DAILY.

The Ethiopian Eunuch (Acts 8:26-40) was reading the Old Testament Scriptures and he admitted that he did not understand what he was reading unless he gets explanation from someone that knows, a competent authority. Philip as an Apostle was that Competent Authority and he explained to the man and the man converted and became member of the Church through Baptism, fighting for his salvation with fear and trembling.

If you belong to a false Church, it will also lead you to eternal death. Since while the TRUE CHURCH of Christ teaches one thing, your false Church teaches another.

Protestants insist that it is God that they are worshiping while in actual fact they worship themselves and swim in errors with their bibles on the right hand.

The Devil and his agents teaches that the Church will not save you so that people can go to any Church they please and receive poisons that will damn their souls.

I was present recently at a ‘Revival’ at my university organized by a campus ‘pentecostal’ group. They had all sorts of entertainment which the call ‘praise worship’. The present to us young men and women making sexually suggestive dance steps while clad with tight trousers and shirts that reveal some sensitive parts of their bodies. While this was going on, people do as if they are communing with Christ! After the salacious dance, a man came and keeps preaching with many words, acting like a pop star and making the gathering hysterical. The show shows how decadent people’s spiritual live are. The majority are not able to see that these are schemes designed to ensure they are damned!

Surely there is NOTHING Christian in the whole gathering. Those who organized it are presenting to us the life of sin they learnt from the devil and which is supported by their ‘Church’! This clearly shows that the ‘Church’ you belong to will either send you to hell or to heaven!
We must always note that Our Divine Savior never spoke of ‘His Churches’ but ‘His Church’. He does not say ‘Upon this rock I will build my Churches’. He said ‘upon this rock I will build my Church’. From this we must conclude that it never was His intensions to establish various conflicting ‘denominations’ but ONE corporate body, with all members united under ONE head, for as the Church is a visible body, it must have a visible head.

The Church is called Kingdom: ‘He shall reign over the house of Jacob forever and of His Kingdom there shall be no end (Luke 1: 32-33). Now in a well regulated Kingdom there is but one king, one form of Government, one uniform body of laws, which all are obliged to observe. In like manner, in Christ Spiritual kingdom, there must be one Chief to whom all spiritual allegiance, one form of ecclesiastical government, one uniform body of laws which all Christians are bound to observe.

I told some of my friends that IF we all worship the same God, then he will tell us all ONE thing and not many. The fact that there are many ideas shows that we all do not worship ONE God but many Gods. How can we explain the fact that we all claim to be Christian and yet there are thousands of organizations calling themselves ‘Christian Churches’? The truth is that the Devil begets new religions to deceive souls.

The multiplicity of religion was encouraged by Novus Ordo religion at the Vatican! The devilish Vatican II document Unitatis Redintegratio taught that non-Catholic religions are products of the Holy Ghost. This is a clear teaching from hell. The implication of this teaching is that ALL religions are good since they come from the Holy Ghost! The Vatican II religion which occupies the Vatican and Catholic Parishes worldwide encourages people to be in any religion they please since your ‘church’ will not save you!

We recognize the Devil when he speaks through his thousands of agents. We recognize Christ when he speaks though His one true Church. Our savior calls His Church a ‘Sheepfold’ that was why he said ‘and there shall be one fold, one shepherd’ (John 10:16).
Are you a member of this fold?
