POPE FRANCIS GATHERING WORLD LEADERS FOR GLOBAL PEACE CONFERENCE AT VATICAN TO SAVE WORLD FROM NUCLEAR DISASTER

0

by Geoffrey Grider, Now The End Begins:

Russia is sending a top nuclear expert, and NATO’s deputy secretary general, Rose Gottemoeller, is scheduled to speak. China and North Korea have been invited, but organisers said they do not know if the countries would send representatives as they do not have diplomatic relations.

THE POPE IS GATHERING OFFICIALS AND PEACENIKS AS HE TRIES TO SAVE THE WORLD FROM NUCLEAR DISASTER AMID THE WEST’S STANDOFF WITH NORTH KOREA. THE “HOLYMAN” WILL ADDRESS A CONFERENCE AT THE VATICAN TOMORROW TO TRY TO TEMPER THE WAR OF WORDS BETWEEN DONALD TRUMP AND DESPOTIC KIM JONG-UN.

“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:5 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: Pope Francis likes to act like a king more than he likes being a pope, and it’s no wonder. Revelation says that the beast of the ‘whore of Babylon’ will indeed be a global king, albeit for only a short time. 

The US President, currently on a tour of Asia, said this week that the North Korean regime should “never underestimate” America’s military might by continuing in its drive for a vast nuclear arsenal. Among those attending the meeting are UN and NATO officials — as well as 11 Nobel Peace Prize winners.

Monsignor Silvano Tomasi, a conference organiser, admitted foreign policy analysts believe it is “pie in the sky” to think it could have an impact. But he added: “I think it’s very important to alert public opinion that the presence in the world of thousands of atomic bombs doesn’t guarantee the security of anyone.”

POPE URGES MEDIATION TO END NORTH KOREA CRISIS:

In July, 122 countries approved a new UN treaty calling for the complete elimination of nuclear weapons — but none of the nuclear powers and no NATO members signed on.

George Lopez, who advised the UN Security Council on North Korea sanctions, said the Vatican conference “draws attention to and underscores the treaty and the Nobel prize, and says, ‘This is serious stuff’.”

BARNA GROUP SHOCK POLL REVEALS THAT 47% OF ALL CHRISTIAN MILLENNIALS BELIEVE THAT WITNESSING THE GOSPEL AND EVANGELIZING IS WRONG

0

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

In a study entitled “Reviving Evangelism” the Barna Group, a research center that tracks faith and spirituality in American life, reported that 94% of practicing American Christian agreed that “the best thing that could ever happen to someone is for them to know Jesus.” On the other hand, the same study found that 47% of Christian millennials believe that evangelism is wrong.

The vast majority of practicing Christian millennials believe that knowing Jesus is “the best thing that could happen to someone,” while nearly half believe evangelizing is wrong, a study conducted by the Barna Group reported.

Pope Francis Allegedly Told Michael Moore (A Socialist) That Capitalism Is Sin

0

by Paul Bois, Daily Wire:

Pope Francis allegedly told left-wing propagandist Michael Moore that capitalism is “sin” during their private meeting last month.

Michael Moore is an avowed socialist who has spent his entire career promoting pro-abortion politicians. Both socialism and abortion are condemned as intrinsic evils in the Catholic Church that deprive humans of their dignity. While the Church has criticized usury and capitalism’s occasioned abuse of workers in the mindless pursuit of profit, it has never expressly condemned the economic system with the same forceful language as it has socialism and communism. And yet, of all the sins that Pope Francis could have lectured Michael Moore about, he allegedly chose to affirm him in his socialist principles.

Historic Christ Church Falls To Political Correctness

0

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia, was constructed during the years 1765 and 1773. It was designed by James Wren, a relative of Sir Christopher Wren, the most famous English architect. The colonial era, pre-Revolutionary War church, is a national historic landmark.

It was my church when I lived in Old Town Alexandria, a colonial settlement along the Potomac River. It was also the church of my neighbor, Henry “Joe” Fowler, Deputy Secretary of the Treasury for President John F. Kennedy and Secretary of the Treasury for President Johnson. Another neighbor was US Air Force General Benton Partin, whose study proved conclusively that the Murrah Federal Office building in Oklahoma City blew up from the inside out and not from the outside in from McVeigh’s truck bomb.

Joe Fowler and I used to talk about how facts were no longer part of any aspect of Washington’s policy or media reporting. And this was long ago in the 80s and 90s. Imagine today when it is the obligation of the US media to lie for the CIA and the DNC.

Christ Church was the church for George Washington and for Robert E. Lee and for other notables of our early history. Robert E. Lee was married to George Washington’s great-grandaughter.

The congregation was proud of the church, its history and simple beauty. In addition to the spiritual dimension, there was the historical one. The Episcopal service was beautiful, and the rector’s sermon was always short. My young son could sit through the service, and the choir and organ were wonderful.

With such fond memories I was astonished to hear from the Senior Warden that Christ Church has decided to remove the “marble memorial plaques to George Washington and Robert Edward Lee in our worship space.” Apparently, our first president’s sin is that he owned Slaves in the 18th century, a common practice at the time when white, Indian, and black slaves were common across the world. Robert E. Lee’s sin is that he “fought for slavery,” a lie that I and Thomas DiLorenzo recently refuted on this website.

I am puzzled by the reference to “marble memorial plaques.” What I remember is small silver plaques, measuring a few inches by a few inches, that designated the pews in which the Washington family and the Lee family sat. I often wondered years ago that no one had yet pried off the silver plaques for souvenirs. Perhaps they have, and were replaced by marble plaques. On the other hand, perhaps I never noticed the marble plaques, which leaves me wondering if the marble plaques are to be removed, what about the silver ones on the pews. Who gets those?

One doesn’t quite know what to make of history being erased like this. Washington and Lee (and there is a university of that name) are probably the two most decent and honorable people the United States has ever produced. But their association with an ancient, by US standards, church, which Washington helped to found, is to be erased.

From the standpoint of its traditional parishioners, the Episcopal Church has departed the Christian religion. The Episcopal Church has gone against the scriptures by ordaining women and LGBT people, and by sanctioning same sex “marriage,” although the Book of Common Prayer still describes marriage as the union between a man and a woman.

But, I mean, really, what is consistency when you have to be trendy?

Being trendy for Christ Church means deep-sixing its own history. The congregation today must be different from the one Joe Fowler, with whom I had breakfast most Sunday mornings, and I knew.

America is disappearing. The country I live in today bears no resemblence to the one into which I was born. Perhaps I should write about what it was like to be an American when America was still present in the world.

Military men are best, perhaps, at appraising other military men. White House Chief of Staff General John Kelly says that Confederate General Robert E. Lee was ‘an honorable man.”http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5034931/Trump-chief-staff-Kelly-decries-removal-monuments.html

Head of Russian Church: Godless West is ‘Uprooting Faith From Society’

0

by James Bogardus, Russia Insider:

“We Russians are a people … who have passed through the difficult stages of denial of God’s existence and … have now turned to God  – and what we see is wonderful.”

This short excerpt is a particularly good example of the almost daily sermons the head of the Russian church, Kirill, gives as he travels around Russia. They are all broadcast on Russian Christian TV channels and on the internet and reach a wide audience.

Kirill is a remarkably good speaker. Here, he puts into a nutshell the stark spiritual divergence of Russia and the West.

Very interesting, and very revealing.

We are not sure of the date of this recording, but it is relatively recent.

Full transcript follows below:

Full Transcript:

We know that some developed and powerful countries, using their wealth and power, are trying to uproot faith from their societies.

That does not mean that the people of these countries no longer have faith, rather it is just harder and harder for them to confess it.

We are a people, Holy Rus, Russia, who have passed through the difficult stages of full denial of God’s existence and any presence of God in people’s lives, have now turned to God and what we see is wonderful.

WHAT ALL CHRISTIANS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE 7 NOAHIDE LAWS, THE NEW WORLD ORDER AND THE COMING SHORT-LIVED KINGDOM OF THE ANTICHRIST

by Geri Ungurean, Now The End Begins:

Recently many of us have been reading about something called the Noahide laws. I had never heard of such a thing. What Are the 7 Noahide Laws? The 7 Noahide Laws are rules that all of us must keep, regardless of who we are or from where we come. Without these seven things, it would be impossible for humanity to live together in harmony.

The Origin of the Separation of Church and State

0

by Jeff Thomas, International Man:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”

Americans can be justifiably proud of their founding fathers’ insistence on a separation of Church and State. And, yet, surprisingly, very few Americans seem to understand what their founding fathers meant by this concept.

Conservative politicians take pride is saying that the US is, primarily, a Christian nation and that their Christian forefathers fought King George in order to have the freedom to practice Christianity as they saw fit.

Liberal politicians tend to take an opposing view—that separation of Church and State means that the concept of God has no place in government. In fact, some go so far as to say that landmarks, such as a plaque stating that George Washington attended a specific church, should be removed, as it compromises the separation of Church and State.

Unfortunately, both these groups have got it wrong.

So, let’s take a step back and have a look at what caused Thomas Jefferson to repeatedly insist that the separation be implemented in the US Constitution.

Mister Jefferson attended the College of William & Mary, where he received the university customary education, but went on to study law privately under George Wythe in Williamsburg, Virginia. Mister Wythe was not only his teacher, but his mentor, a man in his latter years who not only imparted knowledge to the young Jefferson, but wisdom. He frequented the Raleigh Tavern with his pupil, but additionally brought him to banquets at the mansion of Governor Fauquier, in an effort to expand his outlook. 

I believe that it’s safe to say that, when Mister Jefferson completed his education at age thirty-four, he had both the energy and imagination of youth and the wisdom of the elders at his command. The former gave him his drive and the latter provided him with the farsightedness that guided the writing of the American Constitution and the future direction of the new nation.

George Wythe lived conveniently next door to the Governor. (His home is still there today, as is his small study where he taught the future president.) On the other side of his home was Bruton Parish Church. In the 18th Century, one could not be elected to office unless he was a member of the Church of England. As Attorney General, Mister Wythe tolerated this, but taught his pupil that, as a free man, he should not be required to be an Anglican.

To add insult to injury, Mister Jefferson was not a Christian, but a Deist, as were several others of the founding fathers. He did believe in his own form of a God and even referred to him in the first sentence of the Declaration of Independence, but did not ascribe to him the power of miracles and omnipotence, as described in the Bible.

In addition, he regarded Jesus as an admirable human being, but did not regard him as anything more. (In later years, he would create his own Bible, by removing much of what he considered to be latter-day additions to the King James Bible, leaving little more than the words of Jesus.)

In spite of his beliefs, Mister Jefferson was required to be a (paid-up) member of the Anglican Church in order to sit in the House of Burgesses, and he chafed at this requirement.

However, he was a deep believer in the concept of God as a being with both consciousness and conscience, who he believed took no direct part in the affairs of man, but did create all men as equals and therefore entitled them to “certain unalienable Rights.”

But he saw the Church differently. He regarded it as a political organization, controlled by the King, intended to dictate morals and acceptable behaviour.

JUSTIN TRUDEAU IN CANADA MOVES TO BAN CHRISTIANS FROM DEMONSTRATING IN PUBLIC UNDER NEW PRO-ISLAM AND PRO-LGBTQ+ ANTI-HATE SPEECH PROPOSAL

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

As Canada becomes more restrictive toward Christianity, they open their arms for the LGBTQ agenda and Islam to take a foothold in their culture. The bill, “Prohibiting Hate-Promoting Demonstrations at Queen’s Park Act, 2019,” bans any demonstration, rally or other activity that is deemed hateful by the Speaker from being permissible on legislative grounds – effectively insulating the government from Christian speech.

‘You Are Abandoning God’ – Head of Russian Church Explains to US Ambassador Who Is Mormon

0

from Russia Insider:

The distance between our values is increasing” added the Russian patriarch.

What we would have given to be a fly on the wall for this conversation.

We wonder if the fact that 99% of Russians think Mormons are nuts ever came up? Or, what in the world was the Trumpster was thinking in sending a Mormon and a mega-cuck to Moscow as his personal representative? 

Or maybe he was thinking that he wasn’t going to let an ambassador get anywhere near his relationship with Russia, so he would send one which was disqualified from the get-go? One can only wonder.

At the end of the day it hardly matters – the US ambassador has been a non-entity in Moscow ever since Michael McFaul turned it into a clown show 6 years ago. Huntsman’s predecessor, John Tefft, was a Mormon too, and completely invisible – it’s who you send to Russia if you want them to be completely ineffective.

Pravoslavie.ru has the story:

His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia met with newly-appointed American ambassador to Russia John Huntsman at the patriarchal residence yesterday to discuss matters of relations between the two countries and of the fate of suffering Christians around the world, reports patriarchia.ru.

Welcoming the guest, Pat. Kirill noted that the Russian Church has a special relationship to the United States, as great missionaries like St. Herman of Alaska and St. Innocent labored for years to bring the Orthodox faith to the American continent. “In addition to his missionary service, [St. Innocent] carried out a very important cultural work, creating an Aleut alphabet. The Russian Church spread to California from Alaska, and then to the eastern shore,” His Holiness told the ambassador.

The patriarch also spoke of St. Tikhon of Moscow’s missionary service in America, noting that this year marks the centenary of the restoration of the Russian patriarchate and St. Tikhon’s election to the position. “The works that he and his predecessors carried out on the American continent still live, and there exists today the Orthodox Church in America, which our Church granted autocephaly in 1970.”

The patriarch went on to note that the relationship between believers is one of the human heart, between diplomats—of the mind, and between businessmen—of the stomach. “I don’t think we should exclude the heart from international relations,” His Holiness emphasized.

31 PROMINENT CATHOLIC THEOLOGIANS AND CLERGY ACCUSE POPE FRANCIS OF HERESY, ISSUES CALL FOR HIM TO REPENT OR VACATE THE PAPAL THRONE

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

The 20-page document is a follow-up to the 2017 Filial Correction of Pope Francis that was signed originally by 62 scholars and which stated that the Pope has “effectively upheld 7 heretical positions about marriage, the moral life, and the reception of the sacraments, and has caused these heretical opinions to spread in the Catholic Church,” especially in light of his 2016 exhortation Amoris Laetitia. The authors of the open letter state in a summary of their letter that it has now become clear that Pope Francis is aware of his own positions contrary to the faith and that the time has come to go a “stage further” by claiming that Pope Francis is “guilty of the crime of heresy.”

HEAD OF THE RUSSIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH PATRIARCH KIRILL WARNS THAT ANTICHRIST WILL ‘CONTROL HUMAN BEINGS’ THROUGH OUR SMART DEVICES

0

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

Patriarch Kirill said that the collection of user data including “location, interests and fears” will make it possible for humans to be controlled by external forces. “Control from a single point is a harbinger of the coming of the Antichrist,” Kirill told the state-run Rossia-1 TV network on Orthodox Christmas Monday. “The Antichrist is a personality that will be at the head of the world wide web controlling the entire human race. Thus, the structure itself presents a danger,” he said. The church leader stressed that “if we don’t want to bring the apocalypse closer, there should be no single [control and access] center.”

Pope Francis Criticizes Fake News Yet The MSM Is More Guilty Than Anyone

0

by Aaron Kesel, Activist Post:

Pope Francis condemned fake news as satanic, stating journalists and social media users should ignore and unmask manipulative “snake tactics” that foster division to serve political and economic interests, Reuters reported.

“Fake news is a sign of intolerant and hypersensitive attitudes and leads only to the spread of arrogance and hatred. That is the end result of untruth,” Francis said.

The Pope writes in the document, called “The truth will set you free — Fake news and journalism for peace,” that spreading fake news can “serve to advance specific goals, influence political decisions, and serve economic interests,” according to the news publication.

He also criticized the “manipulative use of social networks.”

“This false but believable news is ‘captious’, inasmuch as it grasps people’s attention by appealing to stereotypes and common social prejudices, and exploiting instantaneous emotions like anxiety, contempt, anger and frustration,” he said.

He added there is an importance of being able to recognize the “sly and dangerous form of seduction that worms its way into the heart with false and alluring arguments.”

“We need to unmask what could be called the ‘snake-tactics’ used by those (purveyors of fake news) who disguise themselves in order to strike at any time and place,” Francis said.

The Pope previously in 2016 sensationally claimed “that media that focus on scandals and spreading ‘fake news’ to smear politicians risk becoming like the people they have a morbid fascination with excrement.”

Hold on, hold on really you compare reporters holding politicians accountable for their political ties to shady groups, secret societies and potential scandals to eating poop and getting off on it? What?

Yeah we sure did eat a lot of bull sh*t in the past like the Iraq WMDs when the U.S. and U.K. governments colluded to sell the American people fake news that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction to self-investigate Iraq based off forged plagiarized academic papers. It’s also now known thanks to the press that Bush and Blair planned the Iraq invasion a year prior revealed by the emails of Hillary Clinton.

Then there is the Gulf Of Tonkin incident that started the invasion of Vietnam on false pretext when the government at the time lied and said a second Gulf of Tonkin attack had happened. And, finally, the admitted bombing of the Lusitania which started WW1. And while we are talking about false flags to start wars, let’s add in the proposed false flag that JFK stopped, Operation Northwoods; so this seems like an ugly pattern of the sin of treason.

Mr. Pope Francis what do you have to say about this well-sourced but disturbing information? Even ex-governor and Navy Seal Jesse Ventura has came out and spoken out about the Gulf Of Tonkin incident and how all wars are started with a false flag.
