Philippines to question priest over ivory trade

Sep 26, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Tri-cityherald.com

Monsignor Cristobal Garcia, who rose to prominence in a Philippine archdiocese despite a U.S. sex abuse case in the 1980s for which he was suspended by the Vatican just this year, is quoted in the October issue of the magazine as describing how to bring ivory figurines into the United States.

Oral Roberts,

You are absolutely right!!! This Cristobal Garcia was involved in rapes in the United States but the matter is not investigated by the Catholic Church while only pretending to investigate the matter about the ivories of endangered animals!!! There is no update about the rapes and the ivories!!! Though they have updates about the newly canonized spurious saints!!! They concentrated more on scams and fabrications in order to decieve!!!

The Mary of the Roman Catholic Church is not real!!! She, according to a Vatican teaching, is the spouse of Christ:

"O most Blessed Virgin Mary glorious Mother and Spouse of Christ the King."

Reference:(Regal Litany of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, p. 6.)

Imagine, a son marrying his own mother!!! Thus, a former Roman Catholic priest, Adrian Hastings, has described the Roman Catholic Church as:

"Church of sinners and of fools."

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

What's your choice?

[1] To observe Catholic rites borrowed from pagans...

"It is interesting to note how often our Church has availed herself of practices which were in common use among pagans...Thus it is true, in a certain sense, that certain Catholic rites and ceremonies are a reproduction of those of pagan creeds."

Reference:Rt. Rev. Msgr. John F. Sullivan, D.D. The Externals of the Catholic Church, p.226]

...or to stand by what the apostles taught?

"Here then is my word to you, and I urge it on you in the Lord's name: give up living as pagans do with their futile notions." [Eph. 4:17, Revised English Bible]

"Now, brothers, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying, "Do not go beyond what is written'. Then you will not take pride in one man over against another." [1 Cor. 4:6, New International Version]

Note:
The Catholic Church has often borrowed from pagan rites and ceremonies. This is a violation of the Apostolic teaching that forbids Christians from living as the pagans do and from going beyond what is written in the Holy Scriptures.

What's 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.

Catholic and Protestant charities are not intended for helping but for scamming!!! These charities of the false religions 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!!!

Facts and Figures...

Half of all Catholic priests are gays---

In a recently published book, Gay Priests, by social scientist James G. Wolf, it is "estimated that half of all Catholic priests are gay. For a religion that in recent years has called homo-sexuality 'an intrinsic evil,' that's big news."

"...a majority of the priests surveyed said they understood their vow of celibacy as an 'ideal' rather than a law."

Reference:("Gay Priests: Book shines spotlight on taboo," The Miami Herald, January 19, 1990)

Several months had passed and the leaders of the Roman Catholic Church in the Philippines have not come up yet with the result of their investigation regarding the number of ivory idols that the spurious religion possess!!!

They are however busy doing scam after scam, the officiating of masses for the dead, the humdreds who died resulting from the punishment handed out by God to those who worship inutile graven images!!!

It is never too late to correct what is wrong!!! And Catholic and Protestant teachings are replete with all kinds of wrongs such as the fabrications that Christ and the Holy Spirit are:

"Thus, for example, it was not until 325 A.D., at the Council of Nicaea, that the [Catholic} Church defined for us that it was an article of faith that Jesus is truly God."

Reference:(Discourses on the Apostles' Creed, p. 206)

As to how the doctrine that the Holy Spirit is God came about, Catholic author , the Rev. Clement H. Crock, provides this information:

"In 381, at the Council of Constantinople, it was defined that it is an article of faith that the Holy Ghost is God."

Reference:(Crock, Clement H. Discourses on the Apostles' Creed, p. 206. Nihil Obstat: Arthur J. Scanlan, STD. Imprimatur: Patrick Cardinal Hayes. New York: John F. Wagner, Inc., 1938)

There is no biblical basis as to the fabrications made by the Roman Catholic Church!!! For if their teachings are truly based on the Bible, they do not have to gather in councils to formulate the truth!!! All they need is to read a verse or verses since the Bible was already comletely written in the first century and therefore was already a closed book!!!

The Iglesia ni Cristo has already constructed and dedicated to God almost 150 grandiose and beautiful chapels for year 2012 alone but the Roman Catholic Church has not yet made any update on her investigation regarding the number of scarecrow idol ivories that she possess!!!

This criminal Church thinks that she can always escape public scritiny all the time!!! Their leaders has to be reminded that the public is now reading her true story ever since she was planted by Satan and which resulted to her fabrications of many unbiblical teachings!!!

Improve your low I.Q.!!!

History would attest that the Catholic Church had employed landgrabbing as a means to enrich the Vatican coffer:

"Pagan temples were either closed, transformed into Christian shrines or demolished. Their properties were summarily added to the Church's patrimony. The wealth of sundry religions was mercilessly expropriated, their clergy dismissed or persecuted, when not civilly or even physically obliterated. The transfer of political might made an easy transition into acquisitional power, the Roman Catholic Church set in earnest to promote a policy of swift appropriation of real estae, of highly renumerative governmental posts, and even of speculative monetary and commercial enterprises."

Reference:(The Vatican Billions, p.21)

The Roman Catholic Church is a landgrabber!!! It is no wonder why an ex-Roman Catholic priest, Adrian Hastings, has this to say against his religion:

"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.)
So, are popes "vicars of Christ"??? A BIG NO!!! What are they "vicars" of??? Ruler of Space, Satan!!!

What's your choice?

To believe in the Holy Trinity which was just fabricated by the councils of the Catholic Church...

"Thus, for example, it was not until 325 A.D., at the Council of Nicaea, that the [Catholic} Church defined for us that it was an article of faith that Jesus is truly God."

Reference:(Discourses on the Apostles' Creed, p. 206)

As to how the doctrine that the Holy Spirit is God came about, Catholic author, the Rev. Clement H. Crock, provides this information:

"In 381, at the Council of Constantinople, it was defined that it is an article of faith that the Holy Ghost is God."

Reference:(Crock, Clement H. Discourses on the Apostles' Creed, p. 206. Nihil Obstat: Arthur J. Scanlan, STD. Imprimatur: Patrick Cardinal Hayes. New York: John F. Wagner, Inc., 1938)

...Or to stand by what Christ taught?

"Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said:'Father,... And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent'." (John !7:1,3. New King James Version)

Note:

The Roman Catholic and Protestant cults are teaching the doctrine of the Trinity that Christ is God the Son and He is equally and eternally the one true God.

But the Bible introduces the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God and not "God the Son." God Himself declared in Matthew 3:17 the following:

"And suddenly 'a voice came from heaven, saying,'This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased'." (New King James Version)

The apostles also acknowledge Christ as the Son of God:

"Simon Peter answered and said,'You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God'." (Mt. 16:16, Ibid.)

Apostle Peter said it clear that Christ is the Son of the living God, not the living God Himself. Apostle Paul further proves that Christ is not God by distinguishing Him from the one true God. This he states:

"For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus." (l Tim. 2:5, Ibid.)

"the power of the Church (Catholic) has been used in history to do the devil's work."

Adrian Hastings was correct in disobeying the Roman Catholic Church for celibacy is a doctrine of the devil!!! In one of his epistles, Apostle Paul identified two teachings that false prophets would use in leading the believers to depart from the faith--"forbidding to marry" and "commanding to abstain from meats":

"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

"Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

"Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth." (l Tim 4:1-3, KJV)

The Catholic Church forbids priests to marry after ordination and prohibits the consumption of meat during Lent and certain days of the year!!! These are doctrines of the devil!!!

Matthew 28:19 states thus: "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."

Take notice that the verse does not say "baptize them in the name of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit"!!! Therefore, the dogma of the Trinity which is not mentioned in the Bible cannot be made to exist anywhere except in the brains of the low I.Q., in their fabrications, and in the false beliefs of Roman Catholicism and Protestantism!!!

When was the fabrication of the dogma of the Holy Trinity??? When did this happen??? Roman Catholic history tells us:

"Thus, for example, it was not until 325 A.D., at the Council of Nicaea, that the [Catholic} Church defined for us that it was an article of faith that Jesus is truly God."

Reference:(Discourses on the Apostles' Creed, p. 206)

As to how the doctrine that the Holy Spirit is God came about, Catholic author, the Rev. Clement H. Crock, provides this information:

"In 381, at the Council of Constantinople, it was defined that it is an article of faith that the Holy Ghost is God."

Reference:(Crock, Clement H. Discourses on the Apostles' Creed, p. 206. Nihil Obstat: Arthur J. Scanlan, STD. Imprimatur: Patrick Cardinal Hayes. New York: John F. Wagner, Inc., 1938)

Take notice that the Council of Nicaea declared Christ as God in year 325 and the Council of Constantinople declared the Holy Spirit as God in year 381!!! The piecemeal fabrications of the Holy Trinity were done in the mentioned Catholic councils!!! Therefore, it is clear that before the Council of Nicaea in year 325, the only true God that was worshipped by the Christians was the Almighty Father!!! And from the beginning of biblical history up to year 325, only one true God was worshipped by the children of God:

"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.

So, at first it is clear that in year 325 and after the Council of Nicaea, the Roman Catholic Church only had two Gods!!! And after an interregnum of several years, the Catholic Church increased the number of their Gods to three when the Holy Spirit was added at the Council of Constantinople in year 381!!!

Summary:

1. Only one true God was worhipped by the children of God from the start of bilical history up to the days of the early Christians. No Trinity!!!
2. The apostate Catholic Church added another God in year 325 at the Council of Nicaea. Two Gods were worshipped (God the Father and God the Son, Christ). No Trinity yet.
3. After an interregnum of several years, the Catholic Church added another God, the Holy Ghost, in year 381.

By merely looking at the time interval starting from the first century, then, to year 325 when Christ was added as another God, and then, to year 381 when the Holy Ghost was added as another God, we can easily discern that the dogma of the Holy Trinity was an evolving fabrication of the Roman Catholic Church!!!

Hopefully, these INC Churches will help pray for the safety of the Filipinos whether Catholics, INC, atheist from calamities like Pablo typhoom! Unfortunately, Elias blames the Catholic whenever typhoons floods strike the Filipinos and only talk of the "grandeur of INC CHURCHES" under a sepcor.

Remember, prayers are the best weapons against the work of devils.
