Near where I live there is a church where a sign posted by the exit from the parking lot reads, "You are now entering the mission field." I want so much to turn the sign around facing the other direction but it would be vandalism!

I went to one on a mercy mission, but as soon as they started to tell everyone how to worship, (when to clap hands and when to stand) I made a bee line for 'the door' ,just as soon as I saw a gap, and I headed for the street. No, I did not run. I just walked calmly down the 24 or so stairs to the street. What appears to be on the outside, once inside often resembles a spiders web.

The inventor of these lunchboxes sure knows how to market. Some basic elements in good marketing techniques employ targeting for: LUSTS...EGO...PRIDE...HEALTH....WEALTH....AND PROSPERITY. The clergy of our day are excellent marketeers also. They exploit humanitie's basic sinful desires. And religion is a major sinful desire.

Is this Pope John Paul II waving from beyond the grave? Vatican TV director says yes
By NICK PISA - More by this author »Last updated at 21:21pm on 15th October 2007

This fiery figure is being hailed as Pope John Paul II making an appearance beyond the grave.

The image, said by believers to show the Holy Father with his right hand raised in blessing, was spotted during a ceremony in Poland to mark the second anniversary of his death.

Details appeared on the Vatican News Service, a TV station in Rome which specialises in religious news broadcasts.

Burned into the memory: The image that appeared in the bonfire, Tending his flock: Pope John Paul II at an audience in 2001 (right)

Service director Jarek Cielecki, a Polish priest and close friend of John Paul II, travelled to Poland after hearing an onlooker had photographed the image.

Father Cielecki said he was convinced the picture showed the former pontiff.

"You can see the image of a person in the flames and I think it is the servant of God, Pope John Paul II," he said.

The pictures were being broadcast continuously on Italian TV and also posted on religious websites, some of which crashed as thousands logged on to see for themselves the eerie figure formed by the flames.

The bonfire was lit during a service at Beskid Zywiecki, close to John Paul's birthplace at Katowice, southern Poland, on April 2 - the second anniversary of his death.

Hundreds had attended the ceremony. Gregorz Lukasik, the Polish man who took the photographs, said: "It was only afterwards when I got home and looked at the pictures that I realised I had something.

"I showed them to my brother and sister and they, like me, were convinced the flames had formed the image of Pope John Paul II.

"I was so happy with the picture that I showed it to our local bishop who said that Pope John Paul had made many pilgrimages during his life and he was still making them in death."

What do you mean, Scott? Are you stating that you don't see the resemblance between the external fire of God tormenting the reprobate, causing them to curse Him, and the internal fire of God's Spirit causing the elect to praise Him forever? I'm not sure if that is what you are saying or something else.

In the end, we're all in the presence of God who is a consuming fire. Either that fire burns within us or without us. As some of you know, I don't perceive of Gehenna as a literal torturing fire but rather as the contempt of God toward the reprobate manifested in His everlasting presence. The seething rage (wrath) of damned souls is ordained to bring eternal praise to God. Forever they stand in the presence of God and His gospel truth in Christ; forever they HATE God in Christ as the only redeemer of perishing souls. Forever they demand that God offer a different plan of salvation--one that pleases them and is in harmony with how THEY think the universe should be run. Forever they sense and feel the contempt and hatred of God and the saints toward all who will not love the gospel ordained from eternity.

I agree Scott. This is pure delusion. However the unregenerate mind always seeks after signs, wonders, superstitions, the macabe, sorcery, soothsaying, etc. etc.

I guess anyone whom God causes their mind to wander, will see "doves and crosses in the clouds" "Images of the virgin Mary in glass pane windows""Hear the voices of the Saints in Heaven" and of course images of John Paul in the firery flame.

Maybe we will see a 50 ft. Jesus, like Kenneth Copland did some years ago. Or perhaps Jesus will make an appearance on this forum, similer to what Benny Hinn predicted what would happen at one of his miracle crusades.

An adulterous generation will always seek after signs and wonders. But the elect rest in the words of Christ. "Blessed are they that have not seen and yet believe".

I've told many of our readers, that "oil is oil." The Bible just teaches that we should anoint one another with oil. HOWEVER, having said that, we enjoy making specially fragrant and specially prophetic-meaning oils available to you for your ministry use.

Again, it could be motor oil, since "oil is oil." But the OIL OF THE POMEGRANATE (offered below) has special Biblical meanings of success, prosperity, healing, and more.

You will notice a group of products here that are both aromatic and fragrant, oils and books about praying, to cleanse your life and your property -- for both your body and your personal homes.

I hope you'll get them.

Chuck Pierce creates products that excite me, such as the POMEGRANATE Anointing oil below.

The books Reordering your Day and Portals to Cleansing (along with an anointing kit for your property), are best-sellers!

Get them while they are in stock!

Welcome Trevor to the forum. You ask "anyone else see a problem with this?"

I DO!

These institutions believe that if they can imitate worldy cultures, they will achieve in keeping their members satisfied. Of course the economic burden is supported through the unbiblical tithe (tax). Most of these institutions are void of the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. They have become nothing more than entertainment centers and social clubs.

However this is exactly what unregenerate sinful humanity craves. A religion of the flesh.

McChurch has always existed and has waxed and waned over the years. It does work into the American consumerist and individualist mentality nicely. Willow Creek was probably the first church to really pull this off on a large scale but many are becoming dissatisfied with the McChurch mentality.

The Papacy for centuries has always come up with new inventions to mesmerize the unsuspecting public. Nothing new here!

She will probably market these fragments as relics. Those who purchase these relics will receive special graces to lesson their time in Purgatory.
This Pope like all popes before him have no clue at all to the teachings of the Pauline Gospel. Worshipping his alledged bones won't help them one bit.

However there will still be many who acknowledge this man as a leader of the Christian world. Man worship will always continue in this system as in all false cults.

Just look how pretty he looks in his pagan hat and robes. What stupidity mankind has embraced as the real.

Unless God opens up the eyes, ears, and minds of His people, they too will have no power over this great fraud and deception called Romanism.

There is obviously no way of proving without a shadow of a doubt that these are Paul's bones just as it is the case with other ancient tombs. But it does appear that the bones match the time period and that from very early on people recognized them as Paul's bones. The Pope is a promoter of false doctrine but he is also a very well-read and very educated man, he doesn't make statements without careful consideration.

People shouldn't worship such things but it would be neat to see. My wife and I have been watching the Drive Thru History (http://www.drivethruhistory.com/) series. It has aired on both TBN and the History Channel and they go to all kinds of Biblical locations. It's put together alot better than any others of I've seen. One of my favorite places they showed was a Christian Church that was built eight stories underground in the shape of a cross. They lived underground to escape persecution. They also have a series on American history I would like to see. So far the scholarship seems very good.

Is anyone ready to halve a good laugh? I hope so. The below will demonstrate how superstitious, naive, and just flat out stupid religious people can be. Especially Papists!


As usual my comments will be in RED.


Brace yourself!


Relics for sale (http://purgatorio1.com/?p=210)
As most of you know I’m working a full-time job as well as half -time at my church. With family and blogging and work, I have to ditch one of my hobbies, collecting relics of Saints. When I was in the Navy, I was stationed in Italy and picked up these authentic relics of St. John the baptist. It is said, that if you gaze at them long enough, you’ll shave years of your stay in Purgatorio. I’ll sell to the highest bidder (sold as a set only).

680
John the Baptist's skull (as a boy)
681
John the Baptist's skull (as a teen)
682
John the Baptist's skull (as an adult)
683
Reliquary included free of charge.

Below are some comments from various people who responded to this ad.

“ I already have the boy and the adult skull, I just need the teen skull to fill out my John the Baptist collection. I have an extra one of David’s stones that he used against Goliath and a Moses rookie card that I will trade you.”

Hilarious!!!!

“ I think that you need a nap!! You are getting delusional! Hilarious, but delusional. By the way, I’ve seen these on ebay already!”

I agree

“There is a small Reformed seminary in Montreal in a former catholic church. They removed a couple of the teeth of St. Edward from the Altar when they moved in.”

Ok? However did they keep the Altar? There is no need for Altars anymore since there is nothing to sacrifice. Christ’s sacrifice was once only. Read the letter of Hebrews and count how many times the word “once” is used in reference to Christ’s sacrifice. Church buildings which contain Altars only show how ignorant they are of the Gospel.

“ Do you get extra time off if you can juggle with them?”

LOL....LOL...LOL...LOL!!!!

“Wow, only in Italy can you get genuine artifacts such as these! And they even have all three skulls of one man! A miracle. But the evidence of a strictly locust-and-honey diet is evident by the adult stage. My dentist warned me about that.”

This man should be taught the hermeneutics of Mystery and Paradox, then and only then he will be able to accept all three skulls as the same person.

“ “The evidence… is evident…?” Sorry, my mistake. I was so giddy after seeing those skulls that I wasn’t thinking clearly. “The evidence… is clear…”
You know, Marc, you could put one of these in a bowling ball or maybe make three bowling balls and share with your family? (Ever see “Mystery Men”?) That way, you could still enjoy them without sacrificing family time.”

Now there is a sober response!

“I’ll trade you John the Baptist’s foreskin for a skull.”

I’m in tears laughing!

“Have you heard anything regarding the whereabouts of Joseph’s pants yet?”

No. But I have his coat. In fact I have 200 of them for sale all the original one. Buy now get 2 for 1 low price!!

“Since John the Baptist appears to have already been shaved, does that shorten my stay in Purgatorio by half?”


Absolutely not! You must stay there till you have paid the last farthing..


“It’s nice to know that John the Baptist went through so many transformations. I thought only cats did this.”

“Well, you know what they say, “Three heads are better than one.” No wait . . . that’s “two heads are better than one. Oh well, that means that three heads are better than two!”

“Can the reliquary be motorized? Exactly how many cubits is it? It would make a great “Sunday car”.

Sorry dear friend it cannot be motorized. However the Pope-mobile is. And better yet it contains a living relic for you to worship. You can even kiss his feet!




And the last response


“wait, those can’t be the same skulls — or CAN they…? “



Probably from a Charismatic Catholic. They along with other Charismatics and religious superstitious will believe almost anything.

Who knows? maybe a 50 ft Jesus will appear in your next healing crusade or Sunday service. And better yet Jesus will condescend from heaven and join himself to a piece of bread so you can chew on him for a while, digest Him, then let Him go in your next bowell movement.

Right but you can't prove anything from someone's joke all you might be able to prove is that St. Nicholas doesn't have much of a sense of humor. It's like the email gullible Christians were sending around years ago about the author of Harry Potter being a satan worshiper. It was a work of satire put out by the Onion. All it proved was that some Christians are very gullible and don't have much of a sense of humor.

If I were to create some satirical work based upon people at Predestinarian.net it might help reveal silly things being done and taught but only a fool would try to use it as proof that Predestinarian.net is completely insane.

Wrong again Charles! I did get the joke and I took the liberty to expand on it. However you said that there are "many superstitious" people in the RCC. This is true, but an understatement. ALL Papists are superstitious mystics. Just like modern day Charismatics and other mystics. All who have ecumenical unity and call them "brethren in Christ" lend credence to her blatent corruption, and false Gospel, thus proving themselves to be blind as Rome.

Instead of asking me a question to clarify the meaning or intent of this post before you respond, you just respond with saying "You apparently didn't get the joke."

However this is typical of you :(

Charles please take my advice again with all sincerety. You would be better off joining onto some ecumenical or Roman Catholic forum. You will be in better company with them and have more harmony. You can discuss a variety of churchian topics as I have listed to you before. One thing for sure. You can all disagree and contradict one another and still ALL BE CORRECT! :confused:

There are mystics within Roman Catholicism but their big problem is that on an official dogmatic level they are rationalists.

I was assuming the best of you. Otherwise I couldn't think of any reason to post something as "proof" that was actually satire.

I'm not sure why you would think we would all be correct, but we wouldn't be.

Do you really think that Nicholas believes what you have written?

This is a joke right? :o

I have resolved to put the best possible construction on things regardless of how ridiculous that becomes. Either St. Nicholas is slandering me and lying by saying that I believe that someone else and myself could contradict each other and both be correct when I have never said anything like this or he himself believes that people can contradict one another and both be correct. So I have chosen to continue communication as if St. Nicholas is not lying or slandering and in this case to believe that St. Nicholas believes that contradictory positions can both be correct is the best possible construction.
