The number of Christians in Communist China is growing so steadily that it by 2030 it could have more churchgoers than America
It is said to be China’s biggest church and on Easter Sunday thousands of worshippers will flock to this Asian mega-temple to pledge their allegiance – not to the Communist Party, but to the Cross.
The 5,000-capacity Liushi church, which boasts more than twice as many seats as Westminster Abbey and a 206ft crucifix that can be seen for miles around, opened last year with one theologian declaring it a “miracle that such a small town was able to build such a grand church”.
CONFIRMING HIS ROLE AS ANTICHRIST, POPE FRANCIS SPITS IN JESUS’ FACE AND DEFIANTLY DECLARES THAT ‘THERE IS NO HELL”
by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:
IN ANOTHER INTERVIEW WITH HIS LONGTIME ATHEIST FRIEND, EUGENIO SCALFARI, POPE FRANCIS CLAIMS THAT HELL DOES NOT EXIST AND THAT CONDEMNED SOULS JUST “DISAPPEAR.” THIS IS A DENIAL OF THE 2,000-YEAR-OLD TEACHING OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH ABOUT THE REALITY OF HELL AND THE ETERNAL EXISTENCE OF THE SOUL.
“Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?” Matthew 23:33 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: What’s the easiest way to confuse a Catholic? Ask them a question from the Bible. In all my years on this earth, and after 30 years of being a Catholic who endured 12 years of Catholic Jesuit education, I can honestly say the following. I have never met a nun, priest, bishop, monsignor or cardinal who knew anything about the Bible, not one bit not one speck of Bible truth. Catholics devote their entire lives to the Vatican, and live and die without ever knowing the Jesus of the Bible. Pope Francis said today that ‘there is no Hell’, in wanton disregard and violation of the teachings of Jesus Christ who emphatically declares that there is a Hell, burning with flames, and that you should avoid going there at all costs. Pope Francis is a deceiver, an antichrist, and just possibly the actual Antichrist mentioned in the Bible. Ironically, if Francis were to die today, he would find himself in the very Hell he says does not exist.
by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:
Pope Francis is not only disastrously wrongheaded about an obvious fact that is reinforced by every day’s headlines; he is also deceiving and misleading his people about a matter of utmost importance, and keeping them ignorant and complacent about a growing and advancing threat. Yes, Christians should feel shame – shame that this man is Pope.
Never missing an opportunity to confuse, disappoint, and demoralize the Catholic faithful, Pope Francis, according to the Latin American Herald Tribune, said on Good Friday that “Christians ought to express shame for the actions of those who are leaving future generations a world ‘fractured by divisions and wars.’”
from Russian Insider:
In 2010, the head of the Russian Church, Patriarch Kirill, stated that Moscow needs at least 200 more churches to accommodate the growing number of believers in the city–and compensate for the hundred churches that were razed during the Soviet times
The 60th and largest one has just been completed
In 2010, the head of the Russian Church, Patriarch Kirill, stated that Moscow needs at least 200 more churches to accommodate the growing number of believers in the city–and compensate for the hundred churches that were razed during the Soviet times.
The program ‘200 Churches’ was created in order to fulfill out this mission.
Funded exclusively by donations, its far-reaching goal is to make sure that all believers have churches ‘within walking distances’, especially those, who live far from the center of Moscow, in the newer areas of the ever-expanding city.
Thus far, 60 churches have already been completed.
While the first churches were built to accommodate 200-300 people, this year, the decision has been made to build churches for no fewer than 500 people.
The largest church so far has just been built in the southeast of the capital, Ria Novosti reports. The balconies, lower church and internal design of the church will be completed by the end of 2018.
The church, built in the classical style, will honor the Meeting of The Lord. It is 49 meters high, will fit in 1000 people and have 13 cupolas (domes).

My message to atheists, agnostics, doubters, and folks of other faiths; Truth is truth, regardless of where it is found. Although this piece quotes the Christian Bible, please stay open to the concepts. St. Augustine said, — “Truth is like a lion. You don’t have to defend it. Let it loose. It will defend itself.” Loosen your mind to the possibilities presented here. Be a hungry lion, devouring truth until your soul is satisfied.
Everyone knows about Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address … 272 words, delivered in under three minutes.
Edward Everett also spoke that day at Gettysburg — 13,581 words, delivered in two hours. No one remembers it at all … even though it was full of beautiful language and logic and, among other worthy topics, addressed the hypocritical nature of slavery in a free country. It’s a wonderfully informative summary of the Civil War up to that point (of course, from the North’s point of view). Terrific read, if you have the time. Full text here. But, again, it is remembered only for being unmemorable.
Great sermons are exactly like Lincoln’s speech: Short! No one ever left a church service thinking, “Man, I wish that sermon was longer!“. Therefore, I shall follow Abe’s formula, and keep the sermonizing of each truth to about 300 words. The fact is, each of these five verses of truth presented here are also so simple, yet elegant, that they hardly require any sermonizing at all. Truth defends itself.
I have know these verses my entire adult life. Meditated on them. Lived them — as even now in the Autumn of my life, where much of my faith has withered, and The Last Remaining Life clings precariously. Actually, I can’t think of a good reason why anyone should listen to me.
Except that God once even spoke to a human by way of a jackass (Numbers 22:28)! That means I qualify. I will reveal what I believe is God’s message, not mine, to the best of my ability — imperfect as that may be.
NOTE: I will write using Jesus’ voice. This will be done in a similar manner as recorded in Revelation 2-3. There, in the letters to the seven churches Jesus offers praise (but not always), and condemnations (but not always), and the rewards that come to those “who have ears“. Just to be clear, it is what I believe Jesus would post on the internet today … but, I did not actually hear His voice. My hotline to God has been disconnected.
1)– Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” —- Proverbs 22:6
“Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”—- Lenin
“I commend you for obeying my command to ‘be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth’.
But, I have this against you; I have commanded YOU to train up your children, the apple of my eye. Why, then, did you relinquish your responsibility to those (you call them ‘government schools’) who only desire to corrupt your children’s minds, to turn them into robots incapable of receiving my gift of free will? Why do let the whores of your age (you call it ‘television’) enter into your homes day and night to fill the minds (your Learned Ones call this ‘brainwashing’) of my precious Little Ones? These whoreish creatures, with their unimaginable filth and endless lies, who turn children away from Me, all the while polluting the hearts of my Little Ones with the god of this age (you call it ‘consumerism’).
I rained down fire and brimstone upon Sodom and Gomorrah for far less. Why, then, do you think you will escape my wrath? Did I not warn you that those who corrupt my Little Ones, that it would be better for them to place a millstone around their necks, and drown themselves? My Cup Of Anger will be made known to you as your land (you call it ‘America’) is swept into the dustbin of history, as so many unrighteous nations have been before yours. The wheels of my indignation are already rolling towards the end of your Days of Iniquity.Mene mene tekel upharsim!
Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the people. My servant David sang; — “Through the praise of children and infants, you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.” So, it shall be for you, my beloved. Raise your children well, and I will heap goodness, milk and honey, and healing upon your land for generations to come”

VATICAN NEWS PAID TRIBUTE TO 60 YEARS OF MURDEROUS COMMUNISM UNDER CASTRO IN CUBA THEN QUICKLY DELETES POST AFTER PUBLIC OUTRAGE
by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:
In a pinned tweet, another socialist leader, Bolivia’s Evo Morales, stated: “We salute the victory of Bro. Commandant. Fidel Castro and the valiant Cuban people on the pro-imperialist dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista.” Not to be outdone, the Vatican News Service offered its own tribute of sorts to commemorate the festive occasion: Cuba Celebrates 60 Years of the Revolution. The post reportedly read: The historic anniversary was celebrated with an official ceremony in which the former head of state and leader of the Cuban Communist Party, Raúl Castro, and the current president of the nation, Miguel Díaz-Canel, participated.
The Vatican News website recently paid tribute to Cuba on the 60th anniversary of the Communist revolution in a post that was quickly deleted, according to reports.
