Two Decades Trying to Fix the Chaos

A Jesuit Superior speaking of Pope Francis:

“In addition to being accused of having allowed the arrest of two Jesuits during the time of the Argentinian dictatorship, as provincial he generated divided loyalties: some groups almost worshipped him, while others would have nothing to do with him, and he would hardly speak to them. It was an absurd situation. He is well-trained and very capable, but is surrounded by this personality cult which is extremely divisive. He has an aura of spirituality which he uses to obtain power. It will be a catastrophe for the Church to have someone like him in the Apostolic See. He left the Society of Jesus in Argentina destroyed with Jesuits divided and institutions destroyed and financially broken. We have spent two decades trying to fix the chaos that the man left us.”

A Portrayal of the Woman of Revelation Chapter Seventeen

via Berean Beacon:

September 28, 2015

The Holy Spirit in Revelation Chapter Seventeen vividly depicts the features of the Apostate Church.  It is done in graphically precise detail.  The Apostle John beheld the ten-horned beast carrying a woman dressed in purple and scarlet, decked with gold, precious stones, and pearls, a harlot, and the mother of harlots and abominations.  She is the paramour of kings, merciless, cruel, intoxicated with the blood of the saints and of the martyrs of Christ Jesus.  These symbols are brilliantly portrayed.  “The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth” (v 9).  This the Holy Spirit clarifies by proclaiming, “the woman which thou sawest is that great city which reigneth over the kings of the earth” (v 18).  The city indisputably is Rome.  The name upon the harlot’s brow is “mystery” (v 5).  She cannot be heathen Rome of which there was no mystery because her character was never concealed.  “Christian” Rome, however, is a mystery, for she is not what she appears.  Babylon, in the book of Revelation, is a city and a harlot.  Jerusalem, in the same book, is a city and a bride.  Babylon is the fraudulent lover of earthly kings; Jerusalem, the chaste bride of the King of Kings.  The contrast is between the faithful Church and the Apostate Church.  Chapter Seventeen thus describes in detail the character of the Apostate Church.

Almost Supreme in Washington

F. Tupper Saussy quotes Charles Chiniquy on his trip to Washington to investigate Lincoln’s assassination:

Lincoln-Warren-1865-03-06“not a single one of the government men would discuss it with me except after I had given my word of honor that I would never mention their names.  I saw, with a profound distress, that the influence of Rome was almost supreme in Washington.  I could not find a single statesman who would dare to face that nefarious influence and fight it down.”

Acquiring Riches is Legitimate

Bourdichon The Wealthy Man“Without question, the doctrine of Calvin, in so far as it concerns lending at interest, ran counter to the doctrine of the Catholic Church. This was because Calvin did not believe in barriers between the spiritual and the temporal: he considered work and the serious exercise of a profession as praiseworthy, and therefore accepted the acquisition of riches as legitimate…”

Even The Protestant Ministers

Abraham Lincoln as recorded by Charles Chiniquy in Fifty Years in the Church of Rome:

CastilloJuan“I feel more and more everyday,” [stated the President] “that it is not against the Americans of the South, alone, I am fighting.  It is more against the Pope of Rome, his Jesuits and their slaves.  Very few Southern leaders are not under the influence of the Jesuits, through their wives, family relations, and their friends.

Several members of the family of Jeff Davis belong to the Church of Rome.  Even the Protestant ministers are under the influence of the Jesuits without suspecting it…”

Open Thou Their Blind Hearts

“Rather death than false of faith”

(inscription on Anne Askew’s portrait)

Hans Eworth Portrait of a Lady call Anne Ayscough“Lord, I heartily desire of thee, that thou wilt of thy most merciful goodness forgive them, that violence which they do, and hath done, to me.   Open also thou their blind hearts, that they may hereafter do that thing in thy sight, which is only acceptable before thee, and to set forth thy verity aright, without all vain fantasies of sinful men. So, be it, O Lord, so be it!

By me, Anne Askew”
