GQ SAYS THAT THE HOLY BIBLE IS ‘NOT WORTH READING’ THEN IRONICALLY CALLS THEIR OWN MAGAZINE THE ‘STYLE BIBLE’

0

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

GQ MAGAZINE HAS CAUGHT BACKLASH FOR INCLUDING THE HOLY BIBLE IN A LIST OF BOOKS THAT AREN’T WORTH READING, IN ITS LATEST EDITION WHICH HAS IRONICALLY BEEN DUBBED THE ‘STYLE BIBLE’ ON ITS COVER.
“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Psalm 119:105 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: How’s this for funny? GQ Magazine thinks the Holy Bible ‘has some good parts’ but in their opinion it’s ‘certainly not the finest thing man has ever produced’. Ironically, they say this in the same issue where they steal the word ‘bible’ and apply it to themselves! They are rejecting Jesus Christ while at the same time calling Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs a ‘legend;. Hmm…and so it is with unsaved man, that’s the level of thinking a lost world will produce for you. Well, Jesus has a message for GQ Magazine.

CHRISLAM UPDATE: POPE FRANCIS CALLS FOR MAJOR THEOLOGICAL REFORMS IN CATHOLIC SCHOOLS IN ORDER TO PROMOTE ‘COMMON MISSION’ WITH ISLAM AND MUSLIMS

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

The Pope is pushing for Catholic students to be taught the lie that normative Islam is a religion of peace and so, it follows that anyone who disagrees with this lie would be deemed “intolerant”, opposed to dialogue and  pluralism. It is Islam that is intolerant, supremacist and resistant to diversity. If the Pope is genuine about dialogue, then he should be mutually calling for Islamic States and Islamic schools (beginning with Al Azhar University in Cairo) to establish and preach equal status to all disbelievers, for women, gays etc.,  and promote dialogues with unbelievers like Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists etc.

Is The Debate Over? New Survey Discovers That Religious People Are Far More Likely To Be “Very Happy”

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

A shocking new public opinion poll seems to have settled the debate about whether religious people or non-religious people are happier.  In recent years, more people than ever are “throwing off the shackles of religion” in an attempt to find personal happiness, but it looks like they have been running the wrong way.  According to the Pew Research Center, Americans that are “actively religious” are much more likely to say that they are “very happy” compared to “the inactively religious” and those that are “unaffiliated”.  The following comes from Breitbart

FORMER POPE BENEDICT WRITES PAPER BLAMING PRIEST SEX ABUSE SCANDALS ON 1960’S HIPPIE MOVEMENT, BUT RECORDS SHOW CATHOLIC CHURCH WAS ROTTEN FROM THE BEGINNING

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

Former Pope Benedict’s “The Church and the Scandal of Sexual Abuse” has the unmistakable ring of a papal document. The church’s still-radiating crisis, Benedict suggests, was a product of the moral laxity that swept the West, and not just the church, in the 1960s. The young rebels of 1968, Benedict writes, fought for “all-out sexual freedom, one which no longer conceded any norms.” But this is not even half the truth as you will see.

LGBT Community Applauds Pope Francis For Telling A Gay Man That “God Made You Like This”

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

Is the Catholic Church about to fundamentally change the way that it deals with the LGBT community? According to Spanish newspaper El Pais, Pope Francis made some incredibly revealing comments during a private conversation that he had with a victim of sexual abuse named Juan Carlos Cruz. During that private conversation, the Pope reportedly told Cruz that he is gay because God made him that way and that he should be happy with who he is. These comments by the Pope are making headlines all over the planet, and many are wondering if we are about to witness an enormous shift in direction by the largest religious institution on the entire planet.

THE TIME THAT POPE FRANCIS IN ST. PETER’S SQUARE AT THE VATICAN DECLARED TO THE ENTIRE WORLD THAT LUCIFER IS THE GOD OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

The highlight of the ceremony was the singing of a Catholic prayer known as ‘The Exsultet’, or ‘Easter Proclamation’. The problem starts in the wording of the prayer itself.

On April 27th, 2014, Pope Francis held a ceremony in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican to induct two former popes into sainthood. Catholic sainthood ceremonies are fairly standard procedures, and happen quite often. But on this particular occasion, Pope Francis wanted it broadcast around the world in 3D, HF and 3K.

Gold for Christmas – Gold’s Importance in Religion

0

from BullionStar:

Gold and Religion have always been symbolically linked in countless civilizations from antiquity to the present day. From religious artwork to religious symbolism, gold is unique among metals in being central to many of the world’s religions, and gold has long been associated with the divine sphere.

Gold In Christianity

During the festive season of Christmas, it is apt therefore to reflect on the importance of gold in religion. In the Christian tradition, gold appears in the story of Christmas and its association with the birth of Christ in Bethlehem. According to the Bible, when Jesus Christ was born to Bethlehem, a group of wise men (Magi) made a journey from the East to celebrate and worship the birth, bringing with them gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. The gift of gold was a symbol of wealth and power, but also, according to religious scholars, a symbol of Christ’s kingship on Earth.

In fact, throughout the Bible, gold is frequently mentioned, from the first book (Genesis) to the last book (Revelations), and everywhere in between. For example, the Book of Genesis refers to 4 rivers flowing out of the Garden of Eden, one of which, the Pishon, “flows around the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold.” (Genesis 2:10 and 2:11). And in the Book of Revelations, a description of a new Jerusalem describes the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass” (Revelation 21:21).

While gold is attributed considerable value in the Bible and is frequently referred to as the most valuable substance on earth and the greatest form of wealth, it is also juxtaposed with spiritual value, so as to illustrate that spiritual value is beyond even the substantial material value of gold. For example, Psalm 119:127 says that: “Therefore I love your commandments more than gold, yes, more than fine gold!”

So it’s not surprising then that gold plays an important role in the Christian religion. In Christianity, gold has been extensively used to decorate churches, cathedrals and chapels, to fashion crosses, chalices and altar furniture, and as gold leaf to gild statues, adorn manuscripts, and to represent halos and divine light in Middle Age and Renaissance period art. Gold is also found on the gilded domes of some Christian Orthodox churches in Eastern Europe.

Gold’s Unique Role in Religions

But what does gold possess that gives it universal appeal to all the world’s major religions, and to ancient religious traditions throughout antiquity, such as in Ancient Egypt? And why in the hierarchy of metals, does gold take precedence over other all metals?

The reasons are many and varied. With its unique glow and yellow shine, gold is symbolic of the colour of the sun, and in religious art gold is associated with daylight and the energy of the divine.

THIS IS WHY THE GREAT AWAKENING TERRIFIES THEM…

from SGTreport:

THIS IS WHY THE GREAT AWAKENING TERRIFIES THEM… I was contacted by two western medicine MD’s and a Silicon Valley insider over the past week. The Doctors have gone through a painful and vast awakening and wanted to share their stories with me. Despite WaPo’s best efforts to characterize the alternative media’s research as “fake news” and “hate speech”, the brightest among us are waking up to the TRUTH. The genie is out of the bottle and that fact has the elite, terrified. [Links under the video on You Tube]

A Blueprint for Resistance: Jesus Christ vs. the Police State

0

by John W. Whitehead, Rutherford Institute:

“In that dramatic scene on Calvary’s hill three men were crucified. We must never forget that all three were crucified for the same crime — the crime of extremism. Two were extremists for immorality, and thus fell below their environment. The other, Jesus Christ, was an extremist for love, truth and goodness, and thereby rose above his environment. Perhaps …the nation and the world are in dire need of creative extremists.” —Martin Luther King Jr.

Just as police states have arisen throughout history, there have also been individuals or groups of individuals who have risen up to challenge the injustices of their age.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer risked his life to undermine the tyranny at the heart of Nazi Germany.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn challenged the soul-destroying gulags of the Soviet Union.

Martin Luther King Jr. called America on the carpet for its color-coded system of racial segregation and warmongering.

U.S. CONFERENCE OF CATHOLIC BISHOPS REPORTS AN 100% INCREASE IN REPORTS OF CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE BY ROMAN CATHOLIC PEDOPHILE PRIESTS IN 2018

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

During the period from July 1, 2017, to June 30, 2018, 1,385 adults came forward with 1,455 allegations of abuse, according to the annual report of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Secretariat of Child and Youth Protection. That was up from 693 allegations in the previous year. The report attributed much of the increase to a victim compensation program implemented in five dioceses in New York state. According to the report, Catholic dioceses and religious orders spent $301.6 million during the reporting period on payments to victims, legal fees and child-protection efforts.
