It is correct that the Roman Catholic Church has lost much of its influence not only in the Philippines but all over the world!!! Even her daughter, Protestantism, is the same!!! The reasons are several but with their false doctrines as the main cause!!!

These false religions have admitted their opposition to biblical tenets as could be discerned from damning statements of those in the know:

"We Catholics acknowledge readily, without any shame, nay with pride, that Catholicism cannot be identified simply and wholly with primitive Christianity, nor even with the Gospel of Christ, in the same way that the great oak cannot be identified with the tiny acorn."

Reference:(Adam, Karl. The Spirit Of Catholicism, p.2. Revised Edition. Translated by Dom Justin McCann, O.S.B. Nihil Obstat: Arthur J. Scanlan, S.T.D., Censor Librorum. Imprimatur: Patrick cardinal hayes, Archbishop of New York. New York, USA: Image Books, 1954)

"Because Protestantism today is marked by division and duplication, today's churches bear little resemblance to the first century model."

Reference: Moore, Dr. "The Union That Shouldn't Be Labor." Moody Monthly, September 1984. p.28.

Indeed, denominationalism and factionalism have become so pervasive a characteristic of Protestant churches, prompting one Protestant author to conclude in a damning manner the statement as posted above!!!

The offspring of the apostate church

Being the mother of harlots, the apostate church known as Roman Catholicism bore offsprings that are also harlots or false churches. Branching out from her, during the period of the Reformation, were the Protestant churches:

"Protestantism began as a movement to reform the Western Christian Church in the 16th cventury, resulting in the Protestant Reformation, which severed the reformed Churches from the Roman Catholic Church.... The four main Protestant traditions that emerged from the Reformation were the Lutheran (known in continental Europe as Evangelical), the Calvinist (Reformed), the Anabaptist, and the Anglican."

Reference: Microsoft Encarta Premium Suite 2005.

The true religion established by our Lord Jesus Christ in the first century was in strict compliance with biblical tenets!!! But the fierce wolves came and had the Church persecuted and made victims of its doctrines of apostasy!!!

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

The waning of Roman Catholic influence happened hundreds of years ago!!! The spurious religion split into several factions such as Orthodoxy and Protestantism!!!

In the Philippines just right after the end of Spanish colonization, a split also ensued when the Philippine Independent Church (Aglipayans) divorced from the Vatican!!! Some of the landgrabbed properties of the Roman Catholic Church were claimed by the Aglipayans and indeed, they succeeded in getting a portion of it!!!

Improve your low I.Q.!!!

Two Filipino Roman Catholic alleged saints were canonized by the Vatican at a cost of 50,000 dollars each!!! But their alleged miracles did not surface at all during the onslaught of Ondoy!!! Not only did the alleged gallant saints did not show up in times of need but also the priests and the "lolong" bishops!!!

What do you expect from a people long deceived, oppressed, and buttressed by false propaganda??? They would naturally react to those who are derelicts??? The waning of influence by the Roman Catholic Church is but the natural consequence of such an abandonment!!!

Improve your low I.Q.!!!

Elias, you're deceiving, oppressing and buttressing your own self. Why bother talking if you feel it as false propaganda?? Perhaps you are talking alone while walking in the streets because you can't control your anger and hatred of all Catholic.

Why not talk that God is love and he wants you to preach peace and unity. Find peace and happiness and feed them to your hurting super ego and believe me, you will become a happy person.

Spread the good words of the Lord...

You need to be exorcist.

The Filipino people have more pesos and dollars in their pockets as God loves them .If they can't find job in the Philippines, they are welcome and given the opportunity to work in other countries; then they send back billions of dollars which make the economy stable.

Don American is talking like the Devil or demon that tempts humans to sin, if not commit evil deeds himself. As such, Don is seen as an allegory that represents a crisis of faith believing that suicide will solve his problem. Sometimes, you have to use your head and think hard that not everybody especially me will agree to all your lies and vicious attacks of everything Filipino. LOSER..........

It is right not to resort to abortion for the act is clearly a case of murder of the innocent!!! But a mere "pro-life" stance without proper guidance to the Catholic and Protestant faithfuls is useless because this is being discerned as nothing else but propaganda!!!

Both Catholic and Protestant faithfuls are the sources of millions of fetus murders!!! Even priests and nuns cannot outrightly face the public with clear conscience since some of these fetuses which are thrown into garbage dumps are born and murdered in order to hide the dirty liaisons among these alleged celibates!!!

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

The Roman Catholic Church is like a wounded tiger!!! After suffering so much shame and embarrassments from her failed numerous stance, she has no option but to get even with those whom she thinks are causes of her dismal failures!!!

There will be undeclared Inquisitions and Crusades which will be employed in subtle manners!!! And she can also use these options as described by Atty. Reynaldo T. Fajardo, a Catholic and a former professorial lecturer at San carlos Seminary, regarding graft and corruption in the Catholic Church:

"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.)

An Italian weekly magazine, Sette, which boasts of a circulation reaching 483,000, vivvidly illustrated this rapid decline in Catholic members' enthusiasm in their religion. In an article written by Cesare Fiume in its April 5, 2012 issue, the publication made this observation:

"The number of Catholic marriages and that of priests and nuns are lessened (beaten). To bring religion to the members they must go to the malls ...Here is the 'spiritual X-ray' of Italy. The church was reopened Sunday for Palm Sunday, after months of closure. It was closed from Christmas and remained so until the day before yesterday--unless for some funeral host--due to lack of offerings. The alms were no longer enough to pay the bills for electricity and heating, so the pastor has barred the door ..."

The author likened the Catholic Church to a "candle that is consumed at the base," lamenting that the churches (are) empty, no more odor of frankincense ..." The magnitude of this problem is underscored by the fact that Italy is the seat of Catholicism---yet the "spiritual recession" among her adherents there is strikingly evident. This general atrophy in people's zeal for God is precisely the fulfillment of Christ's prophecy that in these last days, the love of many will grow cold.

This Roman Catholic pope had really subjected Catholic faithfuls in a colossal racket!!! Sins by faithfuls should be paid in cash:

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."

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

The spreading of germs and harmful bacterias are some of the reasons why influence of the Vatican Church is waning!!! Catholic priests are often doing unsanitary behavior!!! They spit on their hands and then wipe their salivas at the ears of Catholic faithfuls during the ritual of confirmation!!!

These priests while doing the mentioned unsanitary behavior have the spurious title as "another Christ":

"The priest is another Christ."

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

Priests must stop their unsanitary behavior for salivas have germs in it!!! A mere claim of being "another Christ" does not justify an unsanitary behavior!!! All Roman Catholics must improve their low I.Q.s!!!

Christianity as a religion is monotheistic!!! And attempts to circumvent the said belief in the first century was prevented from coming out easily because of the restraining influence of the Apostles!!! However when the Apostles died, slowly but surely the pristine biblical belief was exchanged with the beliefs of multiple Gods!!! Christ and the Holy Spirit as "Gods" were fabricated by the Roman Catholic Church in the Councils of Nicaea and Constantinople:

"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)

What is very apparent in the above references is the fact that there was a clear but long interregnum (elapsed time) from the death of the Apostles up to the councils of Nicaea and Constantinople before the second and third spurious Gods were added to or fabricated by the Catholic Church!!! All of these fabrications took hundreds of years after the death of the Apostles and the completion of the Holy Scriptures and showing that the Christian Church of the first-century (Church of Christ) had nothing to do with the perversions of of the Gospel!!!

All Roman Catholics, Protestants, Atheists, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Pagans, Berean Ministry, and other American cults must improve their low I.Q.s!!!
