Roman Catholic Mass Media's Selective Outrage

The Roman Catholic institution is either full of surprises or not full of it. I wouldn't know too much of any deep dark secrets of the Vatican nor do I intend to reveal them all. One of the biggest hypocrisies of the Vatican is their selective outrage. It's already an old issue but it still annoys me to death. It should be very frustrating even if it's not surprising. The Vatican has always been a beautifully white-washed tomb full of dead mean's bones. Many of these parishes are white-washed tombs both figuratively and literally. The Vatican has lot of crimes to answer for. One day, she's going to get what's coming for her.

A good example that I could cite is Archbishop Socrates Villegas of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines. It's time to ask the question where was he in several cases where a Walk For Life was really needed. Instead of having a real walk for life during real times of crisis why is he instead proposing a Walk For Life for the likes of corrupt politicians like Senator like Leila De Lima or for big drug dealers instead of the victims of crime? While Christians should love even the most horrible of sinners but they are called to reprove evil and not to have fellowship with it (Ephesians 4:11). The problem is how misplaced the priorities of Catholic media can get. Why wasn't there any Walk For Life for the victims of Typhoon Yolanda or as of late, the victims of the Maute family terrorists done by Islamic terrorists? Are they angry at the Maute Islamic terrorists for their crimes or for attacking Roman Catholic parishes in Marawi? Why are they mad at death penalty? It's probably because a lot of people who are going to get the death penalty are devoted Roman Catholics who donate huge sums of money to the "Holy Mother Church".

The pattern has been the same. I could remember how often this goes. Whenever a Roman Catholic priest does anything shameful such as raping altar boys or women - they try to cover it as much as possible. Whenever a pastor falls into sin or when a fake pastor falls into sin they trumpet and sensationalize it. Even when a man of God repents of their sin they still sensationalize it. It's just like how David even after he repents of his sin with Bathsheba still gets scorned. The priests no matter how many sexual crimes they committed are still well-accepted. Ahab was such a wicked king and people still kept accepting him anyway. The Vatican scandals have been well-hidden throughout the centuries. A bigger problem arises when historical facts and current events will prove what they call as "myths" are wrong. They would probably say that "The Devil is just clouding your mind!" whenever the violent truth of the Vatican's history comes out. I remembered how often news reports linked to Roman Catholic priests come out and all I hear from some Roman Catholics is that Satan is clouding my mind. Not to mention that a lot of quack pastors involved in sex scandals are also aligned with the Vatican. 

Okay, I don't deny that I can agree with some issues that the Roman Catholic media is against. They are right whenever they protest against pornography, abortion, narcotics, sex education, population control or anything that the Bible condemns as wrong. The problem is the motives that they have and how often they are pretty much "Follow what I say but not what I do." like the Pharisees. How often is it that any march against abortion done by a Roman Catholic community ends up covering up the sins of fornication between priests and nuns? Some incidents have verified how abortion happens behind the closed doors of a convent to hide the sins of the priests and nuns. Other incidents have pointed out priests who are indulging in sexually degenerate media and behavior. Some priests are even protecting big time narcotic dealers. What's the use of protesting against certain sins if you're having a walk for life for people who violate the right to life to be protected against the sword of God's law? Romans 13:1-2 doesn't tell the government to plant onions with the sword but to slay evildoers if necessary with the sword. God ordained the death penalty therefore it can't be an act of murder.

There are some historical proofs that the Vatican has used various religious orders to destabilize governments even before the Jesuit Order was established by Ignatius of Loyola. The Foxe's Book of Martyrs, the books of Augustus Toplady and the writings of Charles H. Spurgeon are among a few to reveal the treachery of the Vatican in destabilizing the world. The Dominicans created the Spanish Inquisition not only to convert people to Roman Catholicism even through violent means but also to destabilize governments. The Jesuit Order wasn't only created to counter the Reformation but also to help infiltrate and destroy governments. They only want to back up any government official who sides with the but will go against anyone who doesn't want to be their puppet. They may even be responsible for installing people who aren't legitimately voted into seats of power. What's even sad is that the average Roman Catholic isn't even aware of the anomalies that has long plagued them behind the scenes. But even if they are they are some of them would still cover them up. 

What can Christians do? This is not a call to argue or quarrel with Roman Catholics. This is a call to evangelize them. They are stuck in the power of the Devil and they don't know it. They are the mission field to evangelize. They're lost in sin. Christians are not to exercise the state responsibility of death penalty. The task of bearing the sword was given to the state and not to the Church. This is a call to preach against sin and the Savior from sin. What's so sad is that many Roman Catholics love their sin too much to leave their system of hypocrisy. They just love their system that somehow allows them to sin all they want, go to confession, do penance, go to Mass and live like the rest of the world. If that's so then whose really living like someone has a license to sin? This should also serve as a warning of what Christians should avoid doing. It would be stupid and hypocritical to criticize the hypocrisy-driven Roman Catholic mass media if Christians don't expose fake pastors for the scam artists they are. There should be no cover-ups and fake Baptist or any evangelical or Protestant churches that are involved in scandals that could damage any Christian gullible enough to support them. Any evil must be rebuked and there must be no selective outrage or selective justice when it comes to sin. 
Revelation 18:4-5 
And I heard another voice from Heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

Even so come Lord Jesus!

Who Will You Believe: Pope Francis or the Bible?

Here's a cartoon of how tragic the afterlife for Roman Catholics would be when they realize that they needed a real, personal relationship with Christ to enter into Heaven. As I grew up as a Roman Catholic I didn't really care about the Bible. I even hear some Roman Catholics are told to never read the Bible for themselves because not everyone should be allowed to read it. The priest often says that reading the Bible alone will confuse you so you need their extrabiblical doctrine. Worse, they are confusing Sola Scriptura with Solo Scriptura. Born again Christians have their tradition but it's dictated by the Bible as a guiding principle to one's lifestyle. It's not that they read only the Bible but rather they have the Bible as their only principle for Christian tradition.

What is this personal relationship? As much as some pastors feel like the term personal Lord and Savior can be dangerous or "personal Savior" may suggest that Jesus is a genie than Lor…

When God Says No, He Means No

When God says no He means no! Do you know why the world is in a mess right now? It's all because Adam and Eve couldn't follow one simple rule that was to never eat of the tree of the fruit of life. I'd like to imagine it that God may have even put an "Off Limits" sign on it. But Satan himself always finds a way to convince people to break the rules.
Genesis 3:1-5 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

What Christians Can Learn From Joshua and Caleb's Confidence in Seizing the Promised Land

Being a Christian means you can be stuck in a pickle. Today's lesson will be from Numbers 13-14 which talks about the twelve spies to the Land of Canaan. I think any Christian leader going into much trouble today may find this as both a source of vexation and encouragement at the same time. It's a source of vexation because there are so many people like the rebellious Israelites in the wilderness. It's a source of encouragement because it's a reminder that God is still in charge.

The story of Numbers 13 talks about the spying. We see one member of each of the tribes that were given a political inheritance were there. We can see their names are as follows:
Numbers 13:4-13 And these were their names: of the tribe of Reuben, Shammua the son of Zaccur. Of the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat the son of Hori. Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh. Of the tribe of Issachar, Igal the son of Joseph. 8 Of the tribe of Ephraim, Oshea the son of Nun. Of the tribe of Benjamin…

Drunk Driving is Dangerous to Society

Consider this picture of a drunk driving incident. This is the car that the late Princess Diana Spencer, the late Dodi Al Fayed and the late Henri Paul (the driver) were using before their tragic demise. What was also interesting to note is that their driver had high dosages of alcohol prior to this gruesome incident. I don't want to talk about the conspiracy side of things but the whole ugly picture that drunk driving kills. But even after this incident and many similar ones before it is that many people still do it even if the consequences are clear as day.

The Bible warns that being a drunkard is one of the marks of an unsaved person:
1 Corinthians 6:9-10  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Modernization is Not an Excuse to Dismiss Badly Needed Old-Fashioned Revivals

I remembered reading through Jeremiah can be a chore because the events of that book continue to repeat itself. At the same time, reading through Jeremiah can be a comfort because the prophet chose to stand by God's command even if he momentarily stopped preaching (Jeremiah 20:5). One verse that is used to call for old fashioned revivals is Jeremiah 6:16 which says:
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.
It's a problem you start calling for old-fashioned revivals and people will call you outdated or a neanderthal. While there's nothing wrong with modern technology but the problem is when people only care if something is modern. While modernization can be used to evangelize but it can also be used to spread the influence of sin. The same printing press that allowed the late Martin Luther to publish Bibles was also u…

The Prosperity Gospel is an Enemy of Cheerful Giving

I remembered having a lecture on the prosperity gospel. One of the worst lies of the prosperity gospel is that giving money or the tithes and offerings to their pastors will turn you into a millionaire, God will spare them from trouble and that they can have the desires of their wicked heart. That's one of the worst heresies I've heard. On the contrary the more faithful you are to God the more you should expect enemy attacks. Some people I know are faithful in giving and their tithes and offerings yet they are not living as billionaires. The motive of giving in the prosperity gospel is to gain the false promise that God wants us happy, healthy and wealthy all the time. That's not cheerful giving isn't it?

If you give money to God in exchange for material blessings then something is pretty wrong. It's a terrible misapplication of Malachi 3:9-10. Do they even know that the blessings where there isn't enough room to receive it isn't all about becoming a billio…

Politically Correct Parenting Raises Spoiled Brats

Politically correct parenting is already the norm of parenting in this fallen world. What most parents don't see is that everyone needs a healthy dose of both Vitamin Yes and Vitamin No. But like anything beneficial in excess or in scarcity too many people have either too much or too little of Vitamin Yes and Vitamin No. While it's not okay to have an overdose of Vitamin No but what's so upsetting is that many people today take the opposite extreme. They aren't giving enough Vitamin No ad are given too much Vitamin Yes. Either way both are overly misguided approaches in parenting.

Is there anything wrong with giving the child what they want? It depends on what the child wants. If a child wants something that's going to honor God (ex. They want their own copy of the Bible that they can read for themselves) then the parent should say yes if what the child wants is God honoring. But if the child only wants to be like the secular children with all their nice stuff the…
