Even if the Papacy makes milions of cardinals from the ranks of the Roman Catholic Church, the statement of a former Catholic priest would still reverberate all over the world in a manner that is descriptive of the apostate Church!!! Adrian Hastings has described the Roman Catholic Church as:

"Church of sinners and of fools."

Increasing the numbers of cardinals within the "Apostate Church of Mary Seen Everywhere" is futile!!! For they don't go out to restrain their gangster cliques from committing crimes every spli-second!!!

The role models of the gangster cliques are the priests and cardinals!!! And who would be foolish to mend ways if what they see from their leaders are their stories of rapes and corruptions all over the world bannered by the tri-media!!! The matter is clearly stated by a lawyer professor whose name is mentioned below:

"In contemporary history one is reminded again of the scandals in the center of Roman Catholicism. Bank scandals, counterfeiting, laundering of Mafia money from illegal business,(Narcotics, prostitution, kidnapping, etc.) name it you have it, kickbacks, hidden wealth-connections with the Mafia, the CIA, Communists and subtle hypocritical connections within the P2 (Propaganda Due-a secret and powerful Masonic Group headed by Licio Gelli).
"The graft and corruption involves billions of dollars. All these eventually leads to the untimely and tragic death of Pope John 1 (Albino Cardinal Luciani) who occupied the papacy for only 33 days ending on September 28, 1978. Research and formal investigations show evidences to murder!"

Reference:(Fajardo, Reynaldo T. Bulletin Today, April 16, 1986, p. 8.)

Take note that that a pope stayed only for 33 days in his office andwas murdered later!!!

Mr. George Lamsa never believed in the deity of Christ as could be gleaned from his Bible commentary of Acts 20:28:

"Jesus was not called God in those early days ..."

"Si Jesus ay hindi tinawag na Diyos sa mga unang araw na yaon ..."

Reference: Lamsa, George. New Testament Commentary, p. 149.

Elias, I don't know for sure what you believe as far as Jesus goes - I think he was a wonderful example of unselfish love, mercy, compassion and filled with wisdom - however, a dead body coming back to life? Now I find that extremely difficult to accept - I suspect it's wishful thinking, object being to permit us to believe WE go on after death. "After death" is the same as "before birth", I think. I hope there's more, but....

Each time you post this nonsense, I will set the truth free for all to see.

Adrian Hastings died long ago. He was an Englishman who sought to become a Roman Catholic priest just as the free love movement was hitting its zenith. The end of the 60's and early 70's were tumultous times and questioning authority became de rigeur.(The INC hated that era!)

Hastings was assigned to serve in Africa. He hated it. He was surrounded by conservative Catholic preaching and an angry black population that resisted his preaching and sought handouts instead. He was stricken with malaria and left to recover. Hastings was sent back and he soon became lonely. He chose to disobey his vows and began having sex with one of his congregants. Without approval from his bishop, he cohabitated with her. Eventually, he married the woman. Hastings did all of this while still a priest.

I can see why our Guam based punching bag thinks so highly of him. Felix Ysagun Manalo did much the same thing - only he chose a minor in his congregation to fuck while he was still married to a pregnant wife!

Hastings has no credibility. He was a political hack, going so far as to write of a Portuguese led massacre in order to influence nearby elections. The only problem was that the massacre never happened. He made it all up out of spite. I take his words towards the Catholic Church in the same way - a bitter man who forgot the rules.

Come to think of it, Marcos Mataro has as much credibility. He spoke the truth about the INC after having studied to be a minister for years. He was an insider who learned the truth and wanted it exposed. He was murdered by the INC for daring to cast light on their evil. Marcos Mataro has far more credibility than Adrian Hastings.

George Lamsa has been discredited by almost every Bible scholar in existence. It's ironic that you forget that Lamsa also believed that EVERYONE would be saved. You like to quote parts of his Bible but not the ones that suggest your cult is illegitimate. Why is that? LOL!

Base Gardiner,

How could Mr. George Lamsa be discredited by Bible scholars when they themselves agreed with him in using the phrase "church of Christ" when translating Acts 20:28 of the Scriptures!!! This is how Mr. Lamsa translated the Acts 20:28:

"Take heed therefore to yourselves and to all the flock over which the Holy Spirit has appointed you overseers, to feed the church of Christ which he has purchased with his blood."

"Ingatan ninyo kung gayon ang inyong mga sarili at ang buong kawan na rito'y hinirang kayo ng Espiritu Santo na mga katiwala, upang pakanin and iglesia ni Cristo na binili niya ng kaniyang dugo."
[Acts 20: 28, Lamsa Translation]

And here's how Bible scholars corroborated the work or translation of Mr. Lamsa or his use of the phrase "church of Christ" in Acts 20:28!!! This Bible scholar says:

"As one Church historian, Bernhard Lohse, writes in Motive im Glauben (Motivation For Belief):'Arius reminds us that Jesus, as he described in the Gospels, was not a God who walked this earth, but truly human being. Of course, by his very humanity Jesus proved his full community with God'."

"Gaya ng isinulat ng isang mananalaysay ng Iglesia, si Bernhard Lohse, sa Motive im Glauben (Motivation For Belief):'Ipinaaalala sa atin ni Ario na si Jesus, gaya ng paglalarawan niya sa mga Ebanghelyo, ay hindi isang Diyos na lumakad sa lupang ito, kundi tunay na tao. Mangyari pa, sa pamamagitan mismo ng kaniyang pagiging tao ay pinatunayan ni Jesus ang kaniyang ganap na pakikiisa sa Diyos'."

Reference: Lehman, Johannes. The Jesus Establishment, p. 175. New York: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1974.

Christ walked on this earth as a human being and not as God or another God!!! Improve your low I.Q. and try to make your parents happy and proud of you!!!

The fruit of a plant dies too for a while but after some hybernation, it sprouts and become life again!!! There is life after death!!!

Sacrificing His life for the sake of the Church He established was the most wonderful thing that Christ did!!! It also shows that God through the sending of Christ has concern for mankind, His wonderfil creation!!!

Base Gardiner,

So priests and nuns of the Catholic Church including members went into "free love frenzy" in the 60s and 70s??? What an admission!!! For the Bible prohibits union with the opposite sex outside of marriage and you are exposing the dirty linen of the Roman Catholic Church!!!

Mr. Hastings however had these reasons why he exposed Catholicism and some of these are:

"Church of sinners and of fools."

Reference:(Hastings, Adrian. In Filial Disobedience, p. 126.)

"the power of the Church (Catholic) has been used in history to do the devil's work."
Reference:(Hastings, Adrian. In Filial Disobedience, p. 127.)

Do you now understand now how a Catholic priest called you??? I do not really know if your low I.Q. would be able to figure it out!!!

Base Gardiner,

The Roman Catholic Inquisitions and Crusades which killed millions never stopped!!! It continued under a separate identity, colonization!!! Just remember that landgrabbings by Catholic nations were directed by the Vatican pope by virtue of the Treaty of Tordesillas!!!

Newsflash!!! "Pedo" Calungsod did nothing when the jewelries of an inutile graven piece of wood in Lapulapu City, Cebu, Philippines were stolen!!!

And none of the saints listed in the Vatican roster had made an apparition to restrain the Roman Catholic gangster cliques from pushing through with the crime!!!

Take notice though that the graven image never shed blood and tears for she remained motionless like the biblical scarecrow!!!

Whatn is your choice?

[2] To recognize the Pope and priests as vicars of Christ...

"The official title of the pope is:'His Holiness the Pope, Bishop of Rome, Vicar of Jesus Christ on Earth...'"

Reference:[K.E. Skydsgaard,et al.The Church As The Body of Christ, vol. 1, p.7]

"Vicar of Christ:the Pope as visible head of the Church,acting in place of Christ..."

Reference:[Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines. Catechism for Filipino Catholics, p.676]

"The priest is another Christ."

Reference:[Richard P. Hire,Our Christian Faith,p.154]

...or to hold that nobody can ever take the place of Christ?

"But He holds His priesthood unchangeably, because He lives on forever.Threfore He is able also to save to the uttermost ...those who come to God through Him, since He is always living to make petition to God and intercede with Him and intervene for them."[Heb.7:24-25,Amplif ied Bible]

"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." [Heb.13:8, NIV]

Note:
The Catholic Church teaches that, as Vicars of Christ, the Pope and the priests act in place of Jesus Christ. But the Bible declares that Christ "holds His priesthood unchangeably." He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Therefore no one can ever act in His place or be another Christ.

What is your choice?

[3] To believe that prayers and Masses offered for the dead relieve their sufferings in purgatory ...

"2. The faithful on earth, through the communion of saints, can relieve the sufferings of souls in purgatory by prayer, fasting, and other good works, by indulgences, and by having Masses offered for them."

Reference:[Louis LaRavoire Morrow, D.D. My Catholic Faith, p.243]

... or to renounce such unscriptural belief?

"... But the dead know nothing, and they have no more reward ...nevermore will they have a share in anything done under the sun." [Ecc. 9:5-6, New King James Version]

"All of us must appear in front of Christ's judgment seat. Then all people will receive what they deserve for the good or evil they have done while living ..." [11 Cor. 5:10, God's Word]

"Nowhere in the Scriptures does the word,'Purgatory', occur ..."

Reference:[Joseph Kenny, C.S.S.R. Purgatory: Doctrine of Comfort and Hope, p.2]

Note:
The Catholic Church upholds the belief that prayers and Masses for the dead relieve their sufferings in purgatory. On the contrary, the Bible teaches that the dead no longer benefit from what the living do. Moreover, nowhere in the Bible can we find the word "purgatory" or any teaching supporting it.

Catholic and Protestant chariries is not intended for helping but for scamming!!! These Catholic and Protestant charities get their money from private individials who are not even members of their respective religion!!! No charity work from them comes from their own volition for no money deposited by them in banks are withdrawn during times of calamities!!!

While Iglesia ni Cristo charity proceeds solely from our own members and with nothing coming from the outside!!! The listings of the charities in the Combined Federal Campaign is prrof enough that these so-called charities are not charities at all but just desguised scams!!!
