Polish Catholic priest involved in child porn.

WARSAW, Poland: Polish police say they have detained 78 people including a priest and a doctor suspected of possessing child pornography and spreading it on the Internet.

Poland's national police say they confiscated 116 computers, 5,400 CDs and DVDs, 19 USB drives, more than 100 videocassettes and other materials in early morning raids in 91 homes and offices across Poland.

The police said Wednesday that 10 people have been charged so far for possessing and distributing child pornography on the Web. Authorities are still questioning the remaining people in custody.

If convicted of spreading child pornography, the suspects face up to 8 years in prison.

If you believe in Life after Death, then why is it so strange to ask someone worthy of God's notice--a recognized saint, as we who believe in Christ and live according to goodness are all saints--to intercede on behalf of someone in need?

Only God has the power to decide wether a mortal being is to be considered as "saint" or not. Anything within the realm of spirit, let no man interfere. There is only one father in spirit, that is Jesus Christ. All the others are usurping power that is not theirs or is beyond them. That's what I learned from Jesus Christ.
Sumilangako,

Let me correct your mistake when you said that Christ is the father in spirit!!! The matter is not true for the Father in spirit is the Almighty God!!! In Hebrews 12:9, this is what can be read:

"In the case of our human fathers, they punished us and we respected them. How much more, then, should we submit to our spiritual Father and live!" (TEV)

How does a man name God's Saints anyway? Where did this teaching come from?
In-His-Service,

It is a well-known fact that when a Roman Catholic pope dies, moves are made by the spurious religion to have him beatified and canonized in order for the dead pope to be declared as a saint !!! Therefore, there is an absurdity when someone who is not yet a saint (the living pope)declares others as saints!!! Roman Catholicism, according to an ex-Catholic priest is the religion of the fools!!!

Hope,

The making of a saint or saints is only made possible through the blood of Christ!!! No salvation is made possible without the pouring of the blood by Him whom God sent as the propitiation of sins for mankind!!! The Scriptures declares those whom Christ purchased with His blood:

"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." [Acts 20: 28, Lamsa Translation]

Only the Church of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo) is the recipient of Christ's sacrifice on the cross!!! No Catholics, Protestants, Jehovah Witnesses, Mormons, Baptists, etc. are included!!!

I am so sick and tired of seeing the Pope get recognition and presents placed at his feet. HE IS NOT THE LORD and far from it. He is making a mockery of God the Father. I hope the pope realizes that he will have to answer for this.
Diane,

The popes are the usurpers of God's fuction!!! What is it that the papacy stole from God??? In the Catholic book entitled, The Faith of Our Fathers, which was written by James Cardinal Gibbons, on page 113, this is what can be read:

"The popes were not only devoted spiritual Fathers, but firm and valiant civil Governors."

The papacy stole the title of God by claiming that they are spiritual Fathers!!! In Matthew 23:9 is our Lord Jesus Christ's pronouncement:

"Do not call anyone on earth your father; for one is your Father, He who is heaven." [Ibid.]

It is forebidden that anyone on earth be called by the Fatherhood of God who is in heaven. There is only one Father who is in heaven, and it is not proper to call anyone on earth by that Fatherhood. What kind of Father is God according to the Apostles? In Hebrews 12:9, this is what can be read:

"In the case of our human fathers, they punished us and we respected them. How much more, then, should we submit to our spiritual Father and live!" (TEV)

Depart from the spurious religions of Roman Catholicism and Protestantism!!! Proceed to the nearest Church of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo) chapel for inquiries about the true religion!!!! Log-on to the following websites:

www.iglesianicristo.ws
http://incmedia.org/wpmedia/videos/the-means -...
http://incmedia.org/wpmedia/videos/the-angel -...

Watch NET 25, GEM TV, and INCTV!!! You have nothing to lose but the falsities of Catholicsm and Protestantism!!!

Declaring a person a Saint is nothing more than the vatican recognizing that a person has lived an exemplary life and that people are to imitate his/her life.
Live Saintly Life,

If that is the case, then, what were previously declared by the Vatican as saints should not be removed from the Catholic roster of saints!!!! Santa Claus and St. Valentine were removed by the Vatican as saints after the sponsors spent $50,000 for both beatification and canonization and without refunding the sponsors!!!

Not refunding is cheating!!! This spurious Vatican practices should be stopped!!!

Hope,

Not all who believe in Christ are saints!!! The ex-Catholic priest, Adrian Hastings, stated that Catholicism is the:

"Church of sinners and of fools."

Roman Catholic Church
Brian,

The official name of the church headed by the pope of Rome is "The Holy Catholic Apostolic Roman Church." However, Rev. James T. O'Connor, vice-president of the Mariological Society of America as of 1984, was bold, or we should say, candid enough to call the church of which he is an ordained priest as "The Church of the Mother of God":

"Hail, O Holy and Mystic Trinity, Who have called us together in this Church of the Mother of God. Hail Mary, Mother of God,... "

Reference: O'Connor, James T. The Father's Son, p.70. Boston, MA: Daughters of St. Paul, 1984.)

Since Mary is called the "Mother of God" hence, the church headed by the pope is actually the "The Church of Mary." There must be a valid reason that prompted Rev. James T. O'Connor to give the name "The Church of the Mother of God" or "The Church of Mary."

Their valid reason is the Catholic Church's conformity to the twisting of Satan for it was Christ who established His Church and not Mary!!! This made a former Catholic priest, Adrian Hastings, to make a damning statement against his religion:

"Church of sinners and of fools."

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

What 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.
