Koresh Special: Bro. Paul M— I, too, watched that CNN special on David Koresh and the Branch Davidian massacre. They tried to paint a wicked picture of David, and his followers, in order to justify the slaughter of innocent children by attack and fire. Atty. Gen. Janet Reno ordered the fatal attack, so the buck stops with her and the Devil.
FYI: Cable History Channel 2011 documentary, "Secret Access: The Vatican"
—— The world's population now stands at approximately 6.5B people; of which Catholicism boasts a world membership of at least 1.2-Billion, just shy of China's population, and the largest global religion that has an estimated wealth in billions of dollars plus property, non-liquid assets and liquid investments: the richest religion in the world. The State's income purportedly comes only from its Museums' fees, sales in two stores, issuing stamps and Euro coins; while the church's income likely is from member tithes and gifts.
—— In New York City alone, the Vatican owns numerous properties collectively valued at $2.5B (not including its wealth of properties nation- and world-wide). Vatican property, at just over 108-acres, is valued at $8.25B (i.e. Sistine Chapel at over $800M). Its possession of antiquities, most from pagan societies and expensive gifts from world leaders, and Michelangelo paintings are worth countless billions, and its Bank is worth a secret unknown billions in gold, working capital, other holdings and investments. But, the Vatican claims wealth by its number of willing souls gained over the last 2000 years.
—— The Vatican, the smallest country in the world, has an annual State budget of about $320M. One Cardinal said, "The Vatican State has no taxes. It is the happiest State in the world;" yet it has the highest crime rate in the world due in part to the volume of tourists. It has the planet's most sophisticated media center: radio and television. Inaccessible to the public, built atop one of the Vatican buildings are two high-powered observatories for the study of astronomy and the heavens: when man first landed on the moon, the Pope declared, "Man has conquered the moon." An odd statement that implies ownership.
—— Off limits to tourists, there is a "Tower of the Winds," a square tower with small round angled holes in the upper quadrants. During the Spring Equinox, a ray of sunlight strikes a round zodiac calendar in the middle of the floor two stories below purportedly in order to determine real calendar dates and, earlier, to prove the Julian Calendar wrong: its overall design is paganistic. The State also has extensive science and archaeological departments with no public access. Yet, for hundreds of years Rome had been known for its opposition to science, even sentencing Galileo to lifelong house arrest.
—— In the Vatican's archives are documents that go back 2000 years and prove that the Catholic religion, purportedly set up by Apostle Peter, goes that far back. This claim confirms perfectly Paul's warning "spies came in among us unaware, then went out from us to begin their own religion. If they had been of us, they would not have left us." (paraphrased). Ironically, the Vatican's Jesuit Army is referred to as spies among nations, peoples and religions; as will be noted in a section herein entitled "Superior Speaks" followed by the "Extreme Jesuit Oath."
—— Regarding Peter: the Vatican claims it built the Basilica specifically over Peter's grave, which its archaeologists uncovered years later. The Cardinal hosting the documentary stated, "It is possible that the bones are those of Peter," whom the Church claims was its first Pope; despite the title not yet having come into use. Then the Cardinal hastily added, "They most surely are Peter's bones." His statement is contradictory and really means they do not know if they are Peter's bones: only assume they know.
—— In addition to his titles, the Pope is deemed leader of the World Church and of the world, called the Holy See, both supporting the fact that a One World Order is the World Church. In fact, the Holy See is not focused on religious topics; rather its focus is on international matters and economy. He is also the General of the Vatican armies. Pope John Paul II was instrumental in developing and putting into circulation the Euro currency, his intent that it becomes the world currency.
—— The Pope is described as the most powerful man in the world, whose power and word are considered absolute, for the Papacy claims his words come from God. The title Pope was not used until about 500 years after Papal establishment, but the position goes back almost 2000 years; the title a derivative of the Italian word for papa. "After all, he is the Holy Father, the Supreme Pontiff, the Vicar of Christ: he stands in Christ's place."
—— Of particular note and despite US diplomatic ties with all Nations, each newly elected President's first order of business is to meet with the Pope at the Vatican. Obama was no exception and made his visit just six months after taking office. President Reagan met with Pope John Paul II in June 1982; but President Bush (Jr.) met with Pope John Paul several times while in office and again after he fulfilled two terms: not surprising since he signed into law a number of bills that align with Papal demand. The visits are filled with Papal protocol, pictures are taken and gifts exchanged. Such a U.S. meeting does not occur with all Nations, only selectively when a mutual issue exists or by invitation. The Vatican has proven to be an invaluable intelligence source with its global "listening" forces; which according to description would be the Jesuits.
Titled Topic: Heretics Per the Vatican and Jesuits— begins with Hebrew, Greek interpretations and uses, plus Dictionary definitions
Heretic— Greek: hairĕŏmai, hellŏmai, hairĕsis, hairětizō, hairĕtikŏs, airŏ; a combination of these words mean disunion, to expiate (atone for) sin, prefer, choose, take for oneself, to make a choice, doubt, put away, remove, keep in suspense (the mind); Hebrew: nāsâ or nâcâ; take away, bear, bring forth, burn, carry away, fetch, stir up;
—— Heretic, Heresy, Heresies: able to choose, a religious belief opposed to orthodox doctrines of a church; especially such a belief specifically denounced by the church and regarded as likely to cause schism (division); any opinion opposed to official or established views or doctrines; the holding of such a belief or opinion; to take, choose, a person who professes any heresy; especially, a church member who holds beliefs opposed to the official church doctrines; containing, characterized by, or having the nature of, heresy. (Webster's New World Collegiate Dictionary)
—— Infidel: Greek: apistŏs, pistŏs; combination of these words mean disbelieving, a heathen, untrustworthy.
Infidel: heathen, pagan; a person who does not believe in a certain religion or the prevailing religion; one who does not believe in any religion; a person who does not accept some particular belief. (Webster's New World Collegiate Dictionary)
—— Heathen: Hebrew: gûwr, gûr, gôwr, gôrah; Greek: ĕthnarchēs, ĕthnikŏs, ĕthnikōs, ĕthnŏs, ĕthŏs, ĕthŏ; a combination of these words mean gentile, nation, people, heathen, gather for hostility, afraid, whelp, (lion) cub still in the lair, dwelling of Baal; Governor of a district (not a king), gentile nation, habit, foreign one, pagan, be custom of.
Heathen: the word is purported to have come into language in 4 B.C. by Bishop Ulfilas, which belies its use in the Bible; wasteland dwellers, a member of any nation or people not worshiping the God of Israel; anyone not a Jew, Christian, or Moslem, worshiping many gods, uncivilized, unenlightened, irreligious; pagan. (Webster's New World Collegiate Dictionary)
—— The Greek and Hebrew words and definitions, combined with that of Webster's New World Collegiate Dictionary, clearly describe Papal Rome: both its doctrine and the slaughter— "burn, take away, does not believe in Catholicism, gather for hostility"— of millions of Sabbatarian Christians and pagans with "many gods" who would not embrace Papal doctrine.
—— Especially notable is the Biblical use of Heathen: "Governor of a district (not a king)" applies to the Pope, for his king or one might say "President," is Lucifer and as "governor" or "Vice President," the Pope does Satan's bidding; "dwelling of Baal" is a fitting description of Revelation's statement "I know where is the seat of Satan," the where is the Vatican State and the "seat" is the Pope's throne.
—— Already, the Vatican is once again declaring heretics as all "who do not embrace her doctrine." From global pulpits, she is preparing her people and those of her daughters' to "gather up" the true Church of Christ for slaughter; our trial of guilty 'until proven innocent, without representation, and a sentence of death to be ruled by the Pope in the Vatican's Office of Inquisitors reopened a few years ago. She thinks to do it all in God's name for the purpose of uniting all religions and peoples to achieve world peace.
—— Based on three facts, we know the daughters are included: 1. Rome considers their observance of Sunday as embracing the Catholic doctrine while she calls "Protestant" and "heretics" only those who observe God's seventh day Sabbath; 2. All Sunday sects now teach that the Vatican government is not the beast and the Pope is not the antichrist and the religion is not the false prophet; and, 3. They teach that all religions believe in the same God and Christ thus a divine reason for unity.
The Vatican's View of Heretics: identity of and fitting punishment for
—— “He is a heretic who does not believe what the Roman Hierarchy teaches.” The American Textbook of Popery, p 164 (quoting from the “Directory for the Inquisitors”).
—— "Heresy consists in a stubborn denial of truths which have been defined and proposed by the Church as divinely revealed doctrines. Any baptized person who obstinately denies or doubts any of the truths proposed for belief by divine and Catholic faith, is a heretic." Canon 1324-1325 of the 1917 Code of Canon Law.
—— “He is a heretic who deviates from any article of faith.” The American Textbook of Popery, p 143, (quoting from the “Directory for the Inquisitors”).
—— "Whoever 'obstinately' denies these (Catholic) truths, the doctrinal commentary of Pope John Paul II says, falls under the censure of heresy." Our Sunday Visitor, Analysis, 07/19/1998. For it has been delivered to us, that there is one God, and one Christ, and one hope, and one faith, and one (Catholic) Church, and one baptism ordained only in the one Church, from which unity whosoever will depart must needs be found with heretics." St. Cyprian, The Epistles of Cyprian, Epistle LXXIII, #11.
—— "So the Christian is a Catholic as long as he lives in the body: cut off from it he becomes a heretic-the life of the spirit follows not the amputated member." St. Augustine, Sermon cclxvii, #4 (Quoted by Pope Leo XIII in Satis Cognitum (On the Unity of the Church), Encyclical promulgated on 06/29/1896, #5.
—— "Heretics bring sentence upon themselves since they by their own choice withdraw from the Church, a withdrawal which, since they are aware of it, constitutes damnation. Between heresy and schism there is this difference: that heresy involves perverse doctrine, while schism separates one from the Church on account of disagreement with the bishop. Nevertheless, there is no schism which does not trump up a heresy to justify its departure from the Church." St. Jerome:" Commentary on Titus 3:10–11.
——"Finally some of these misguided people attempt to persuade themselves and others that men are not saved only in the Catholic religion, but that even heretics may attain eternal life." Pope Gregory XVI, Summo Iugiter Studio (On Mixed Marriages), Encyclical promulgated on 05/27/1832, #2.
—— "[The Church] firmly believes, professes and preaches that all those who are outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatics, cannot share in eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels, unless they are joined to the Catholic Church before the end of their lives; that the unity of the ecclesiastical body is of such importance that only for those who abide in it do the church's sacraments contribute to salvation and as do fasts, almsgiving and other works of piety and practices of the Christian militia [armed forces] produce eternal rewards; and that nobody can be saved, no matter how much he has given away in alms and even if he has shed his blood in the name of Christ, unless he has persevered in the bosom and the unity of the Catholic Church." Pope Eugenius IV, in "Bull of Union with the Copts", Council of Florence, Session 11, on 02/04/1442.
—— Heretics (those who are not members of the Catholic Church or who do not hold to Catholic doctrine [i.e. Sunday]) worship a God who is a liar, and a Christ who is a liar." St. Augustine, ("Patrologiae Cursus Completus: Series Graca" quote, by Fr. J. P. Migne, Paris: 1866, 42:207).
—— "A manifest heretic is not a Christian, as is clearly taught by St. Cyprian, St. Athanasius, St. Augustine, St. Jerome, and others." St. Robert Bellarmine, "On the Church Militant".
RDK: Note that Papal Rome does not mention God's Doctrine (Law) as an article to violate that determines an heretic. Rather, the above is all about only the Catholic Doctrine being that which will get a person into heaven; whereas, the Bible gives us the two keys that will open to us the gates of heaven, key one God's Law and key two Jesus, respectively: "They who obey God's Commandments and have the faith of Jesus Christ." The last article above indicates that an heretic was defined by various Catholic Saints, as set out in "On the Church Militant;" which obviously is the Pope's Militia, the Jesuits.
Heretic Punishment by Vatican Militia:
—— “All sects of heretics are condemned and various punishments are appointed for them and their accomplices.” Pope Alexander IV, The American Textbook of Popery, p 135 (quoting from the “Directory for the Inquisitors”). “For the suspicion alone of heresy, purgation [elimination] is demanded.” The American Textbook of Popery, p 156 (quoting from the “Directory for the Inquisitors”). “All defense is denied to heretics.” The American Textbook of Popery, p 153 (quoting from the “Directory for the Inquisitors”).
—— "Also, we decree and declare that all of the aforesaid persons have been and are schismatics and heretics, and that as such they are assuredly to be punished with suitable penalties over and above the penalties imposed at the aforesaid council of Ferrara, together with all their supporters and abettors [accomplices], of whatever ecclesiastical or secular status, condition or rank they may be, even cardinals, patriarchs, archbishops, bishops or abbots or those of any other dignity, so that they may receive their deserts with the aforesaid Korah, Dathan and Abiram..." Pope Eugenius IV, in Decree of the Council of Florence Against the Synod at Basel, Council of Florence, Session 7, on 09/04/1439.
—— "...schismatics, blasphemers are, as heretics, to be punished as traitors, and to have incurred the aforesaid censures and penalties, and others to be inflicted, according as it shall seem good and justice shall persuade..." Pope Eugenius IV, in Monition of the Council of Florence Against the Antipope Felix V, Session 9, 03/23/1440.
—— "Heretics bring sentence upon themselves since they by their own choice withdraw from the Church, a withdrawal which, since they are aware of it, constitutes damnation." St. Jerome: "Commentary on Titus 3:10–11."
—— "Every possible care must be taken to hold fast to that faith which has been believed everywhere, always, and by everyone. He is a genuine Catholic who continues steadfast in the faith, who resolves that he will believe those things - and only those things - which he is sure the Catholic Church has held universally and from ancient times. It is therefore an indispensable obligation for all Catholics to adhere to the faith of the Fathers, to preserve it, to die for it and, on the other hand, to detest the profane novelties of profane men, to dread them, to harass them, and to attack them." St. Vincent of Lerins, Commonitoria, PL 50:637, (quoted in The Apostolic Digest, by Michael Malone, Book 6: "The Book of Sentimental Excuses", Chapter 4: "The Dogmas of Faith Admit No Alteration Whatsoever").
—— "All Laws and Statues of Any Country Which Prevent the Condemnation and Execution of Heretics Are Null and Void. Statutes that impede the execution of the duties which appertain to the office of Inquisitors are null and void.” Pope Urban IV, The American Textbook of Popery, p. 106 (quoting from the “Directory for the Inquisitors”).
—— “Cardinal (Of Lorraine). Anathema [abhorrence] to all heretics. Answer "Anathema, anathema." The Council of Trent, "Acclamations of the Father at the Close of the Council", Edited and translated by J. Waterworth (London: Dolman, 1848).
—— "When confronted with heresy, she (Catholic Church) does not content herself with persuasion, arguments of an intellectual and moral order appear to her insufficient, and she has recourse to force, to corporal punishment, to torture." The Rector of the Catholic Institute of Paris, H.M.A. Baudrillart, quoted in The Catholic Church, The Renassance, and Protestantism, p 182-183.
—— "'The church either burned or otherwise killed infinite numbers of heretics (the Catholic Church may be proved from many examples)." Jesuit Robert Bellarmine, in Disputationes de Controversiis, Tom. II, Lib. III, cap. XXII, 1628 edition. "A heretic merits the pains of fire: by the Gospel, the canons, civil law, and custom, heretics must be burned.” The American Textbook of Popery, p164 (“Directory for the Inquisitors” quote).
Vatican's Jesuit Army: Militia seeks heretics to inflict vowed punishment, as cited in the Jesuit vow quoted later herein; which punishments are cruel horrors that stagger the mind of righteous people—
—— The Vatican's Jesuits, along with Sunday sect leaders and members under Homeland Security protection, will carry out her mission both boldly and in secret, either as needed, in all nations including the U.S.; the latter of whom passed a 1913 bill containing the entire Jesuit vow. The Jesuit Order is very active today, their actions mainly secretive. We quote verbatim below the Vatican statement to those trained in the Jesuit way, and its approved inductees' vow in reply. The extent of Jesuit violence is astounding in its cruel torture and methods of execution but not unexpected according to prophecy of both the Middle Ages and today.
—— During the Dark Ages, the Pope was also Superior General of its large Papal Army at that time, later known as the Jesuits; the Pope's atrocities, of the age then was thought the most efficient way to spread the Gospel far and wide and to destroy Christ's church as they pursued her into the wilderness with deadly weapons and false doctrines. All succeeding Popes also are the armies Superior General.
—— Today, Papal Rome considers it more effective to use the Vatican's worldwide sophisticated medias; the latter actually responsible for making Pope John Paul II the most popular Pope of all time: a face was given to the Church leader. Now, the Pope and his Church also use the Internet to spread its word in cyber space. The Vatican always has adapted to the times, both in society's spiritual and technological changes; of which an Historian noted, "What makes the Church special is its fundamental dedication to something bigger than itself." We are not told what is that "something bigger," but we know it is the power of Satan.
—— The Papal Swiss Guard is referred to as the Vatican's army trained in Swedish military tactics considered the best in the world; however, their job is to protect only the Pope, "the world's Holy Father." The Jesuits, on the other hand, are the Vatican's well-trained army of assassins against all international powers, religions and peoples that defy Papal Rome's authority in all doctrinal and spiritual matters. Both the Swiss Guard and Jesuits are highly skilled marksmen who can and do use an array of powerful weapons. Sadly and revealing a lack of Biblical knowledge and/or knowing Christ's character, Catholics worldwide do not see a problem with this; yet Christ takes exception.
Vatican Ceremonial Speech to Jesuit Inductees:
RDK Intro: The television series "Criminal Minds," in a 2006 segment, opened with a true observation: "The reality of life is one can forgive a child afraid of the dark. The real tragedy is a man afraid of the Light." We echo this sentiment, for man constantly is drawn to Darkness by his greed for riches while living in perpetual fear of the Light that will destroy him due to his choices contrary to God and the choices' effects on others.
—— The above outlook reminds us of a mythical vampire who at night sucks lifeblood from the living; then in a coffin he hides from the sun, knowing Light ultimately will destroy him forever: the walking "twice dead."
—— Scripture: "To whom much is given, much is required; to whom little is given, little is required." This verse has three-fold meanings: 1. The monetarily rich must give their excess to the poor, that there be "equality in Christ's church;" 2. The rich in spiritual gifts must, no matter what difficulties are faced, share those gifts with others; and, 3. Those with little money are made equal to the wealthy; and by shared teachings, those with little or no spiritual gifts and those with a different gift are made equal to Christ's anointed.
—— Remember the third meaning, taking care to listen and heed Christ's anointed; and, those with a different gift should not fail to listen and heed those sharing their gifts and wisdom of "understanding all things." To have a gift does not eliminate one from learning the gifts of others; quite the contrary, they must learn from those with other gifts in order to be fully armored for these end days.
Vatican Conduction Discourse:
—— The Jesuit Oath of Induction is also recorded in the Congressional Record of the U.S.A. (House Bill 1523, Contested election case of Eugene C. Bonniwell, against Thos. S. Butler, 02/15/1913, pp. 3215-3216) It can also be found in the book "Subterranean Rome" by Charles Didier translated from French, published in New York in 1843. Dr.
Alberto Rivera escaped from the Jesuit Order in 1967, and he describes his Jesuit oath in exactly the same way as it appears in this book. "After reading this, ask yourself the question: Is [Papal Rome] REALLY the church of Jesus Christ?"
—— "When a Jesuit of minor rank is to be elevated to command, he is conducted into the Chapel of the Convent of the Order, where there are only three others present, the principal or Superior standing in front of the altar. On either side stands a monk, one of whom holds a banner of yellow and white, the Papal colors, and the other a black banner with a dagger and red cross above a skull and crossbones, with the word INRI, and below them the words IUSTUM, NECAR, REGES, IMPIOUS. The interpretation: "It is just to exterminate or annihilate impious or heretical Kings, Governments, or Rulers."
—— "Upon the floor is a red cross at which the postulant or candidate kneels. The Superior hands him a small black crucifix, which he takes in his left hand and presses to his heart, and the Superior at the same time presents to him a dagger, which he grasps by the blade and holds the point against his heart, the Superior still holding it by the hilt as he addresses the postulant:"
Superior speaks: the Superior General, "the Pope speaks"
—— Dissemble— to conceal under a false appearance; conceal hatred by pretending to be friendly; resemble falsely; simulate; feign; feign ignorance of; conceal one's true feelings, motives, by pretence; behave hypocritically. Disseminate: spread far and wide, as if sowing seed; promulgate widely. Webster's New World Collegiate Dictionary
—— "My son, heretofore you have been taught to act the dissembler: among Roman Catholics to be a Roman Catholic, and to be a spy even among your own brethren; to believe no man, to trust no man. Among the Reformers, to be a reformer; among the Huguenots, to be a Huguenot; among the Calvinists, to be a Calvinist; among other Protestants, generally to be a Protestant, and obtaining their confidence, to seek even to preach from their pulpits, and to denounce with all the vehemence in your nature our Holy Religion and the Pope; and even to descend so low as to become a Jew among Jews, that you might be enabled to gather together all information for the benefit of your Order as a faithful soldier of the Pope. [RDK: This confirms a recent Oil report of priests who were high officials in the SDA General Conference and another priest teaching at one of the SDA colleges who was reported teaching contrary to SDA beliefs: they must have been Jesuits.]
—— "You have been taught to insidiously plant the seeds of jealousy and hatred between communities, provinces, states that were at peace, and incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war with each other, and to create revolutions and civil wars in countries that were independent and prosperous, cultivating the arts and the sciences and enjoying the blessings of peace. To take sides with the combatants and to act secretly with your brother Jesuit, who might be engaged on the other side, but openly opposed to that with which you might be connected, only that the Church might be the gainer in the end, in the conditions fixed in the treaties for peace and that the end justifies the means.
[RDK: That directive proves Armageddon was called by Satan and by him said to be the battle of God; but, it is not the great battle of God. In fact, Saddam Hussein declared Desert Storm "the mother of all wars, Armageddon." Satan through his Vicar the Pope, called the world's armies to the Middle East; just as Old and New Testament prophecies indicated, despite the fact God had said, "They gather untimely and will not do battle with me."]
—— "You have been taught your duty as a spy, to gather all statistics, facts and information in your power from every source; to ingratiate yourself into the confidence of the family circle of Protestants and heretics of every class and character, as well as that of the merchant, the banker, the lawyer, among the schools and universities, in parliaments and legislatures, and the judiciaries and councils of state, and to be all things to all men, for the Pope's sake, whose servants we are unto death.
[RDK: Now we know who were, and are the spies today, of which Paul spoke: they who came in among the Apostles to learn what they were teaching, then went out from them.]
—— "You have received all your instructions heretofore as a novice, a neophyte, and have served as co-adjurer (co-commander), confessor and priest, but you have not yet been invested with all that is necessary to command in the Army of Loyola in the service of the Pope. You must serve the proper time as the instrument and executioner as directed by your superiors; for none can command here who has not consecrated his labors with the blood of the heretic; for "without the shedding of blood no man can be saved." Therefore, to fit yourself for your work and make your own salvation sure, you will, in addition to your former oath of obedience to your order and allegiance to the Pope, repeat after me---
[RDK: Wow. The Bible teaches us that only the blood of Christ can save man. We are facing an exceedingly dangerous enemy, one duped into truly believing he must spill our blood in order to be saved. The Pope is making each Jesuit a Christ serving Lucifer. This verifies God's statement that a few of us will die before Christ arrives.]
Jesuits' Extreme Oath:
—— "I, (name), now in the presence of Almighty God, the Blessed Virgin Mary, the blessed Michael the Archangel, the blessed St. John the Baptist, the holy Apostles St. Peter and St. Paul and all the saints and sacred hosts of heaven, and to you, my ghostly Father, the Superior General of the Society of Jesus, founded by St. Ignatius Loyola in the Pontificate of Paul the Third, and continued to the present, do by the womb of the virgin, the matrix of God, and the rod of Jesus Christ, declare and swear, that his holiness the Pope is Christ's Vice-regent and is the true and only head of the Catholic or Universal Church throughout the earth; and that by virtue of the keys of binding and loosing, given to his Holiness by my Savior, Jesus Christ, he hath power to depose heretical kings, princes, states, commonwealths and governments, all being illegal without his [the Pope's] sacred confirmation and that they may safely be destroyed.
[RDK: "The ghostly Father, the Superior General" of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) are none other than the Pope himself, that "and" does not appear between what appears to be two entities in that line of text. The second entity is merely clarification of who is the first entity: one and the same. Note the vow does not include "in the presence of my Lord Jesus;" oddly, in the presence of all listed they do not fulfill "Father, Son and Holy Ghost." Further into the text, it refers to "the rod of Jesus Christ." The rod is the one God uses for correction and so does Jesus: the rod of Evil, which is Satan. The Jesuit vow is actually signifying all allegiance to Lucifer and the Pope, the latter of whom is revealed as the Jesuit's Father God.]
—— "Therefore, to the utmost of my power I shall and will defend this doctrine of his Holiness' [Pope's] right and custom against all usurpers of the heretical or Protestant authority whatever, especially the Lutheran of Germany, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and the now pretended authority and churches of England and Scotland, and branches of the same now established in Ireland and on the Continent of America and elsewhere; and all adherents in regard that they be usurped and heretical, opposing the sacred Mother Church of Rome. I do now renounce and disown any allegiance as due to any heretical king, prince or state named Protestants or Liberals, or obedience to any of the laws, magistrates or officers.
—— "I do further declare that the doctrine of the churches of England and Scotland, of the Calvinists, Huguenots and others of the name Protestants or Liberals to be damnable and they themselves damned who will not forsake the same.
—— "I do further declare, that I will help, assist, and advise all or any of his Holiness' [Pope's] agents in any place wherever I shall be, in Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, England, Ireland or America, or in any other Kingdom or territory I shall come to, and do my uttermost to extirpate [destroy completely] the heretical Protestants or Liberals' doctrines and to destroy all their pretended powers, regal or otherwise.
—— "I do further promise and declare, that notwithstanding I am dispensed with, to assume (pretend) my religion (is) heretical, for the propaganda of the Mother Church's interest, to keep secret and private all her agents' counsels from time to time, as they may entrust me and not to divulge, directly or indirectly, by word, writing or circumstance whatever; but to execute all that shall be proposed, given in charge or discovered unto me, by you, my ghostly Father, or any of this sacred covenant.
—— "I do further promise and declare, that I will have no opinion or will of my own, or any mental reservation whatever, even as a corpse or cadaver (perinde ac cadaver), but will unhesitatingly obey each and every command that I may receive from my superiors in the Militia of the Pope and of Jesus Christ. [RDK: Blind obedience to the Pope instead of God but Jesus does not recognize the Pope's Militia as His.]
—— "That I may go to any part of the world whithersoever I may be sent, to the frozen regions of the North, the burning sands of the desert of Africa, or the jungles of India, to the centers of civilization of Europe, or to the wild haunts of the barbarous savages of America, without murmuring or repining, and will be submissive in all things whatsoever communicated to me.
******—— "I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity presents, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate (destroy completely) and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex or condition; and that I will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women and crush their infants' heads against the walls, in order to annihilate forever their execrable [deserving to be executed] race. That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel (point) of the poniard (dagger) or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society of Jesus [Jesuits].
—— "In confirmation of which, I hereby dedicate my life, my soul and all my corporal powers, and with this dagger which I now receive, I will subscribe my name written in my own blood, in testimony thereof; and should I prove false or weaken in my determination, may my brethren and fellow soldiers of the Militia of the Pope cut off my hands and my feet, and my throat from ear to ear, my belly opened and sulphur burned therein, with all the punishment that can be inflicted upon me on earth and my soul be tortured by demons in an eternal hell forever!

Superior's Closing: "Go ye, then, into all the world and take possession of all lands in the name of the Pope. He who will not accept him (Pope) as the Vicar of Jesus and his Vice-regent (standing in place of Jesus) on earth, let him be accursed and exterminated."
Pope Benedict XVI, to the Jesuits said: excerpt, 05/05/2006, St. Peter's Basilica— "Your visit today gives me the opportunity to thank the Lord with you for having granted your Society the gift of men of extraordinary holiness and exceptional apostolic zeal (Satan's apostles), such as St. Ignatius of Loyola, St. Francis Xavier and Blessed Peter Faber. For you they are the fathers and founders: It is therefore appropriate that in this centenary year you commemorate them with gratitude and look to them as enlightened and reliable guides on your spiritual journey and in your apostolic activities.
—— "Ecclesial characteristic, so specific to the Society of Jesus, lives on in you and in your apostolic activities, dear Jesuits, so that you may faithfully meet the urgent needs of the Church today.
—— "Among these, it is important in my opinion to point out your cultural commitment in the areas of theology and philosophy in which the Society of Jesus has traditionally been present, as well as the dialogue with modern culture, which, if it boasts on the one hand of the marvelous progress in the scientific field, remains heavily marked by positivist and materialist scientism.
—— "Naturally, the effort to promote a culture inspired by Gospel values in cordial collaboration with the other ecclesial realities demands an intense spiritual and cultural training. For this very reason, St. Ignatius wanted young Jesuits to be formed for many years in spiritual life and in study. It is good that this tradition be maintained and reinforced, also given the growing complexity and vastness of modern culture.
—— "Another of his great concerns was the Christian education and cultural formation of young people: hence, the impetus he gave to the foundation of "colleges," which after his death spread in Europe and throughout the world. Continue, dear Jesuits, this important apostolate, keeping the spirit of your founder Ignatius unchanged.
—— "In speaking of St. Ignatius, I cannot overlook the fact that the fifth centenary of St. Francis Xavier's birth was celebrated last April 7. Not only is their history interwoven through long years in Paris and Rome, but a single aspiration -- one might say, a single passion -- stirred and sustained them, even in their different human situations: the passion for working for the ever greater glory of God-the-Trinity and for the proclamation of the Gospel of Christ to the peoples who did not know him.
—— "The four and half centuries that the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) has existed it has proven wonderfully fruitful, for his example inspired a multitude of missionary vocations among young Jesuits and St. Francis Xavier, Patron of Catholic Missions, remains a reference point for the continuation of missionary activity.
—— "Dear Fathers and Brothers of the Society, today you look with special devotion at the Blessed Virgin Mary, remembering that on April 22, 1541, St. Ignatius and his first companions made their solemn vows before the image of Mary in the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls.
"May Mary continue to watch over the Society of Jesus so that every member may carry in his person the "image" of the crucified Christ, in order to share in his resurrection. I assure you of my remembrance in prayer for this, as I willingly impart my blessing to each of you present here and to your entire spiritual family, which I also extend to all the other religious and consecrated persons who are present at this audience.
BonnieQ: I would like to take this opportunity to humbly thank everyone who has prayed for me; especially Sisters Helen and Joanne, who posted on FaceBook that they were praying, and Brothers Paul M and Bob E, each of whom sent the following emails. Please continue to pray until this matter is resolved to God's satisfaction and according to His will. All of you are in my prayers always.
——— Brother Paul M: Dear Bonnie, thank you for your confession; it is good for the soul, as the song went. "The heart knoweth its own bitterness," is also an axiom for all of us, who should feel we ourselves are the chiefest of sinners, as Paul said of himself ("this is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation"). Don't beat yourself up needlessly over this, Bonnie, for we are all tempted on our weakest points, and your indiscretion in this case seems so minuscule compared to my shortcomings, even since becoming a born again Christian. God is merciful, long suffering, and through prayerful vigilance and faith in His promises, we will "come forth of them all… and though a just man fall 7 times..."
—— If you ever need help, financially, I'm certain that if all of your admirers (along with me, of course) would give a certain amount, your debt problems would vanish, almost immediately. So, if the Lord so wills, please feel confident enough to send out a request to all of us in an Extra Oil; for we are to "work with our hands in order to give to him/her that which is needed." It sounds like your time of need, dear Bonnie. ~Brother Paul M
——— Minister Bob E: My wonderful sister Bonnie, I love you. With all the things you have had to go through, I am mad at the world and the devil. It is so unfair; but, there is a remedy for your feeling of dread. I want to do something that will go toward restoring you. You know God's justice will have its own way. It may be good or bad news but there is a way to get restored. What you have to do may not suit you but it has to be done.
—— Do you love your God? Do you trust your God? Perhaps depression blinds you to the solution. The way to go might be hidden to you; though, I know you have prayed to our Father. So, go ahead and surrender this to God.
—— You found relief to your sin by confessing to God and your brothers and sisters: very good, you did the right thing. Now, think on what else you can do. Humility is always good and you have taken care of that, again by confessing your sins to your brothers and sisters.
—— OK, you know the answer, what it is God would have you do. Receive what you cannot earn: our Lord's wonderful grace. Yes, of course, we all want to make it right. Ask yourself, "What can I do to make this feeling go away. What is the price I must pay?" OK, I'm sure you're getting it now; the price for your sin has been paid. Receive it and you are made whole again.
—— Your God continues to love you; so, walk in this free gift. Like salvation, you cannot earn grace; though God's grace is more than enough. You cannot get more grace, not with more faith or anything. You have enough grace, for God gives you all the grace you need.
—— God's grace is enough for me when I contemplate sin and think I can do it because I know God will forgive me; but when I do sin anyway, God's grace is enough. Oh that sounds so trite . . . but IT IS TRUE. Yes, of course God's grace is enough, more than enough. There is nothing else for you to do, except receive and walk in our wonderful God's grace. I love you as always. Your brother in the faith, Minister Bob
Much love and prayers,
BonnieQ, God's Handmaiden
