Is Catholicism Christianity?
Where did it all begin and
why is the Catholic Church openly declaring war on Bible teachings?
Evolution is not in the Bible. Evolution is atheism. The pope
talks about a "new" church. Evolutionary naturalism
and Biblical theism are opposites and irreconcilable opponents.
The early Roman Catholic church was enmeshed in governmental
affairs which is resurging today. Pope John Paul II participates
freely in politics by speaking to the United Nations and all
leaders of the world.
In Cuba on January 23, 1998, Pope John Paul II, advocated that
Cuba as well as the rest of the world, become a democratic people
movement with peace and happiness as a goal.
The pope's goal is unity in diversity between all beliefs for
the sake of peace under the umbrella of the Vatican's ecumencial
Roman Catholic authority. The President of the U.S. echoed John
Paul's wishes in one of his "state of the union" addresses
by saying: "we must all be one."
Jesus said: "because strait is the gate, and narrow is the
way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find
it." (Matthew 7:14)
A German author named Dieter
A. Binder, described the struggle between the church Jesu Christi
and the kingdom of Satan, the powerful company (society) of Freemasons.
Our predecessors discovered this enemy. It penetrated the Catholic
Church which resulted in Freemasons being openly condemned as
a criminal organization..
There are many sects worldwide. Although they have different
names and rituals, there is a similarity that is recognizable.
They all identify with a central point which is Freemasonry.
The initiated are sworn to keep all names of members secret before
they receive the tokens by which they can identify each other
and it is easy to hide behind this secrecy.
The sects promise to improve life and those who want to follow
have to promise blindly without discussion, always to be ready
and willing to fulfill every command to the point of death, should
information leak out. Vengeance is theirs.
The writer goes on to say
that a good tree can't bear bad fruit but Masonic sects bring
damage which is as bitter as gall.. Their goal is to destroy
the Christian religious institutions. They want to bring a new
belief based on NATURALISMUS (Nauralism, natural phenomenon).
Nature is in charge and man has rational to control it. No religious
dogma should enter in. They believe in a unified humanity.. that
all people come from nature. God fearing should be destroyed..
To cover up the corruption that had occurred in the Vatican,
Pope Leos XIII condemned Freemasonry (Bulle Humanum Genus) stating
that it destroyed God's order. Masonry advocated Rationalism,
with it Antiklerikalismus, separation of church and state, spreading
indifference and tolerant attitudes in allowing divorce and finally
they advocated DEMOCRACY.
A call to fight these issues emerged. The problem is, in Vatican
II the Catholic Church retracted these accusations according
to the author of the book named "Die Diskrete Gesellschaft.

The Catholic Church slackened
off from persecuting Masons that by 1958 little came from the
Vatican regarding this issue. They did develop internal Cannons
in which Catholic members were threatened with excommunication
if found to be members of the Lodge.
In 1896 following the international congress of Trient antiFreesmasons
and antiSemitist banned together, preparing the way for the totalitarian
right Radicalism and Faschism. Eventually agents such as Adolf
Hitler and Erich Ludendorff were the result.
The Catholic Church experienced attacks. Freemasons achieved
separation between church and state. The popes were robbed of
their worldly power under false pretenses, Masons and all religions
were considered equal.
Within the sects, on the surface, initiates can accept or reject
the existence of God but without the foundation, belief in God
Pius IX was pope from 1846-1876,
Italian, Giovanni M. Mastai Ferretti. He was in office when Italian
nationalists took over Italy and Rome, the basis for the Lateran
Treaty (1929) later on. This takeover restricted papal sovereignty
to a few buildings and awarded Pius IX an annual indemnity for
the lost papal states. Vatican City resulted and an agreement
that popes would abstain from politics. Pius IX, a Mason, did
not participate in the war against Freemasons and he lost respect
from the world.
In 1854 Pius declared the dogma of the Imaculate Conception of
the Virgin Mary to become an article of faith. In 1864 he issued
the encyclical Quanta Cura, accompanied by a list of (a syllabus)
erroneous modernistic statements.
In 1869 he convoked the Vatican Council, the principal work of
which was the Enunciation of Papal Infallibility. Pius IX was
the longest pontificate in history.
Taken from the German "Der
Spiegel" Magazine (published for 50 years) an article came
to our attention. The article: "The Church and the Holocaust",
by Rudolf Augstein, October 20, 1997. From the article came a
poster (1933) of a festive moment of placing a cornerstone of
the future house dedicated to German art.
Pope Runtius Vasallo Di Torregrossa spoke to the "Fuehrer":
"I have not understood for a long time, I have tried hard.
Today I understand you!" The poster goes on to state: Also
every German Catholic understands today Adolf Hitler and agrees
on November 12, 1933 with "yes".
The Vatican made farreaching demands to accommodate Hitler's
wishes. The agreement to the Zentrumspartei to legally empower
reached Hitler due to the Koncordats Negotitations. Hitler was
able to dissolve Catholic parties and exclude them from politics.
Hitler was a Roman Catholic, who had paid church tax. He remained
a Catholic and told other prominent Catholic Nazis to remain
in the church. He knew instinctively that both goals, destroying
the Soviet Union and the killing of European Jews, who were opposed
to the Roman Catholic Church, would be accomplished.
Then still Cardinal, Pacelli loved Germany and Italy and with
the official sanction from Pius XI and the Koncordat, opened
the door for Hitler. Pius XI in March of 1937 published the encyclical
"Mit brennender Sorge" (with burning worry) and was
addressing Hitler's godlessness. The word "Jude" (Jew)
was not mentioned. More writings were released but interrupted
and delayed until Pius XI died at 82.
- Pope Pius XII became
pope in 1939 when Adolf Hitler declared war.
- His name Eugenio
Pacelli, former Undersecretary of State.
The article goes on to say:
the question is whether Pius XII would have fallen into the arms
of the Nazis had he spoken out. Hitler's army had a million Catholics
and that could have exerted enough pressure to force a dictator
to retreat and may have averted the war itself.
Whether the behavior of the pope was because he was afraid or
too lazy - it remains "a disgrace." Pope Pius XII has
many followers who want to see him in heaven. He could have at
least tried to hide some Jews in monestaries, churches or in
In 1936 German bishops wrote that Hitler's goal against Bolshevism
was supported by them. In 1942 they still agreed it was God's
will to end Bolshevismus.
Hitler never implied an attack on Rome.
We have to wait on Pope John
Paul II, stated the article, and how he will ask for forgiveness.
He most certainly will not mention any names of his predecessors,
especially not Eugenio Pacelli.
The article closed with the following remark: under Pius XII
morals disintegrated. He gave to all Catholics the dogma of the
"Bodily Assumption of the Virgin Mary."
As other Catholic traditions, the bodily assumption of the Virgin
Mary is not Biblical. The only time the dead were resurrected
was during our Lord's ministry and when Jesus resurrected after
He had died on the cross, others came out of their graves at
the same time. Noone since has resurrected to our knowledge.
To prove that the mother of Jesus was alive at that time, we
go to John 19:25: "Now there stood by the cross of Jesus
his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas,
and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and
the disciple standing by, who he loved, he saith unto his mother,
"Woman, behold your son!" Then saith he to the disciple,
"Behold thy mother!" And from that hour that disciple
took her unto his own home.
Paul Blanchard wrote a classic
on the topic of the Vatican entitled American Freedom and
Catholic Power. Blanchard states this in the Prologue of
his 1949 volume: "There is no doubt that the American
Catholic hierarchy has entered the political arena, and that
it is becoming more and more aggressive in extending the frontiers
of Catholic authority into the fields of medicine, education
and foreign policy.. As we shall see in this book, the Catholic
hierarchy in this country has great power as a pressure group,
and no editor, politician, publisher, merchant or motion-picture
producer can express defiance openly - or publicize documented
facts - without risking his future." (p.4)
By 1986 ecumenism had made
great strides. Pope John Paul II welcomed 160 leaders (including
evangelicals) of world religions to Assissi, Italy which was
a historic step in achieving the global unity of ecumenism. Only
through the advancement of atheism was this possible. Ecumenism
means that Buddhist, Hindus, Muslims, Shintos, Japanese cultists,
Catholics, Protestants, Jews, evangelicals and many others mingled
and prayed together. All in the name of unity for the sake of
Revelation 18:4-5 has the
following message for Catholics who deem themselves to be born
again believers: "Come out of her, my people, that ye
be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her
plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath
remembered her iniquities."
Addressing His "little flock" and the "few
that find" the gate and the way which leads to eternal
life , the Saviour speaks: "Beware of false prophets,
which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are
ravening wolves."(Mattheus 7:15)
