Pinoy New Year rituals and practices

Jan 2, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Sun-Star

There are not many changes in the way Filipinos welcome the coming of the New Year: with loud bangs from firecrackers and colorful confetti and pyrotechnic displays that are believed to ward off malevolent beings and bad omens; the preparation of a special midnight dinner that includes round-shaped fruits thought to symbolize money and the long ...

Catholic and Protestant rituals during the holidays include the murder of children!!! No holiday season all over the world that would pass by without these spurious religions displaying their heinous criminal acts!!! Just look at the threads in TOPIX!!!

" Timothy 3:16 says, "All Scripture is God-breathed..." Not just some Scripture...all Scripture. One of Satan's favorite tactics in order to destroy the believer's faith in God's Word is to convince him that certain promises that God made are not for him."

Elias, preach peace and unity and you'll each the kingdom of God.

You need to be exorcist.

Lol,

Indeed, all Scriptures are God-inspired!!! But the fabrications of the Catholic Church in the Councils of Nicaea and Constantinople were not inspired by God for it is not in the Bible:

"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)

A Roman Catholic catechetical book categorically states:

"The word 'Trinity' does not appear in the New Testament."

Reference:(The Teaching of Christ: A Catholic Catechism for Adults, p. 177.)

All Roman Catholics and Protestants must improve their low I.Q.S!!!

So many Catholic faithfuls died in calamities and while celebrating the holidays but no priest who wears the garments of Christ is visible to help!!!

The Roman Catholic Church is therefore abandoning her duties!!! Her priests come out only when performing a scam known as the Masses for the dead!!!

All Catholics must improve their low I.Q.s!!!

Blue,

Eating dog meat is much better than what this Roman Catholic pope was doing during his tenure:

Pope Benedict IX (1032 to 1048)

Gaining power and wealth from an early age as a result of his family's ties to the church, Benedict IX essentially inherited the title of pope since he was the nephew of both Pope John XIX and Pope Benedict VIII. He was only 20 years old, but quickly developed a reputation as being "cruel and immoral," according to "The Rise of the Medieval World, 500 1300" (Greenwood Publishing Group, 2002).

In fact, in his third book of dialogues, Pope Victor III wrote of Benedict IX's "rapes, murders and other unspeakable acts. His life as a pope so vile, so foul, so execrable, that I shudder to think of it," according to "The Spirit."

Saint Peter Damian had similar things to say of Benedict IX, describing him as "feasting on immorality" and "a demon from hell in the disguise of a priest," who sponsored orgies and routinely partook in bestiality, according to "The Spirit." In his final act of corruption as pope, Benedict IX decided that he wanted to pursue marriage, so he sold his holy title to his godfather for 1,500 pounds (680 kilograms) of gold.

Reading 1 Heb 4:12-16
The word of God is living and effective,
sharper than any two-edged sword,
penetrating even between soul and spirit,
joints and marrow,
and able to discern reflections and thoughts of the heart.
No creature is concealed from him,
but everything is naked and exposed to the eyes of him
to whom we must render an account.

Lol,

No problem with the verses!!! Therefore, this Roman Catholic pope who had the title as "VICARIVS FILII DEI" and which is equal to the scary number 666 will be punished:

Pope Leo X (1513 to 1521)

Pope Leo X not only allowed, but encouraged worshippers to pay for their sins literally. The corrupt religious leader was fond of putting prices on others' sins and requiring them to give him money in return for absolving their wrongdoings. Threatening that their souls would not be able to enter heaven if they didn't pay up, Leo X set sinner fines for crimes such as murder, incest and theft, "Pope Leo X: Opponent of the Reformation" (Compass Point Books, 2006).

Leo X was strictly against the Protestant Reformation, which was inspired by Martin Luther's argument against the church's unscrupulous methods of attaining funds based on people's fears of not getting into heaven, according to "Pope Leo X."

Take notice of what he did!!! You have to pay cash right away!!!

This Roman Catholic pope was an inspiration to believers of the "false sinkhole":

Pope Julius II (1503 to 1513)

Despite the clergy's sacred oath of celibacy , Julius reportedly had several mistresses and at least one illegitimate daughter (some sources indicate that he had two other daughters who died during childhood). In 1511, a council brought charges of lewd sexual acts against him, alleging that he was "a sodomite covered with shameful ulcers," according to Dr. Joe J. Payyapilly in "The Spirit of Holiness" (Xlibris Corporation, 2010).
Although he was a fan of the arts and collected ancient sculptures, he was apparently not a believer in the adage good art takes time. Julius forced Michelangelo to complete the Sistine Chapel before he was ready to do so, according to "The Western Heritage" (Prentice Hall, 2000).
Michelangelo never got around to finishing Julius' tomb after the pope had died, according to "Christianity: the First Two Thousand Years" (Continuum International Publishing Group, 1997).

All Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Atheists, and Protestants must improve their low I.Q.s!!!
