Emails to Grandma

Over the last couple years I’ve sent several E-mails to my Grandmother regarding our shared Christian faith, especially as it concerns doctrine, history, prophecy, current events, and other matters of truth. In this post I will be documenting those E-mails and our correspondences, as generally speaking, they contain a lot of valuable information, and it’s my hope therefore that others may also find them to be profitable to their edification.

(The more recent correspondences will be towards the bottom and vice versa. Bracketed portions are comments I’ve added in review for the purposes of this post, some of the links appear to have gone bad since original emails sent, will do my best to find alternative links to the same information)

Halloween, its roots? Should Christians Celebrate it? (10/9/13)

“HI Grandma,

I just watched this youtube video and I thought I would share it with you.The information is presented by Dr. Bob Thiel, and while I don’t agree with everything he puts out, most of his videos are very informative and well done so I normally keep an eye on his youtube channel.

In the last week he put out this video on the subject of halloween, and with the holiday right around the corner I figured perhaps you find it relevant and interesting!

The part I found most interesting is where he quotes from Anton LeVay’s (author, occultist,  and founder of the “church of satan”) Satanic Bible (1969), in which he states that after the celebration of birthdays there are two major satanic holidays, (one is a european one which I cannot pronounce or spell,) and the other halloween. (Dr. Bob Thiel talks about this at about 08:35 into the video.) anyways hope if you decide to check it out you find it interesting.

Here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3w6K8t9tLE

Taking a closer look at the catholic mass (1/23/14)

Exposing the Heresies of the Catholic Church: The Mass

Grandma in response: (1/23/14)

“There are some fallacies in John MacArthur’s blog, although I read it all – so try this site:

http://www.verdekc.org/explaining the mass.html

Me in Response: (1/23/14)

“Specifically? Nonetheless, that doesn’t change the purpose of mass in Catholicism, and its contradiction to scripture . Again, just referring to one source,  “The Faith of Millions” by catholic priest John O’Brien

“When the priest pronounces the tremendous words of consecration, he reaches up into the heavens, brings Christ down from His throne, and places Him upon our altar to be offered up again as the Victim for the sins of man. It is a power greater than that of monarchs and emperors: it is greater than that of saints and angels, greater than that of Seraphim and Cherubim. Indeed it is greater even than the power of the Virgin Mary. While the Blessed Virgin was the human agency by which Christ became incarnate a single time, the priest brings Christ down from heaven, and renders Him present on our altar as the eternal Victim for the sins of man—not once but a thousand times! The priest speaks and lo! Christ, the eternal and omnipotent God, bows His head in humble obedience to the priest’s command.”

In contrast to just one scripture:

For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:25 Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others;26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation”

Even if there were “fallacies” on that page,  that holds no bearing on the testimony of history, the writings of church leaders, and all the other facts I’ve tried to share with you. In no way is the information I provided you with exhaustive, there are hundreds of books of books that have been written and other sources on these, and similar subjects. My intentions are not in anyway to argue or pontificate. If your not able to see the “big picture,” or for whatever reason choose to stay where you are, that is your decision.”

Extra-Biblical Food for Thought (1/23/14)

“Here are some links that include information which I hope you will look at and find resourceful in seeking to do the will of God.

Hitler and the papacy

Pope Claims to be God on Earth

Grandma in Response: (1/24/14)

“I just listened to a debate regarding Pope Pius XII [wasn’t aware of the following book title at time of correspondence, or would have referenced ‘Hitler’s Pope: The Secret History of Pius XII‘, by John Cornwell and ‘Behind The Dictators: A Factual Analysis of The Relationship of Nazi-Fascism and Roman Catholicism‘ by L.H. Lehmann, 1942; as well I would have urged her to research “The Pale of Settlement, (secondary link)”– and must say when first listening to the debate regarding the supposed fact that the Pope did nothing to help the Jews, it sounded plausible.  But then, I listened to the opposite view and found that 85% of the Jews were saved due to Papal protests defending the Jews.  Hundreds of thousands of Jews were saved – the pope sent letters of warnings regarding Hitler even before he became pope.

I realize this doesn’t settle everything, but it does say there are two sides to every story and you should not believe only the negative.”

Me in Response: (1/24/14)

“While I cannot confirm your claims regarding  the papacy saving 85% of the jews  through protest as true or untrue without doing further research and seeing your sources (or those of whomever is making these claims)[never provided], and while the majority of the information contained within the links I sent you (let me know if you did not receive the first email I sent you with the subject “Extra-Biblical Food for though” which contained several links) can unquestionably be verified by an overwhelming number of separate and unrelated sources, what is evident, is that you keep singling out issues (the former accusation that you made not even being specified, validated, or relevant) and choosing to ignore the overwhelming accounts of history, facts, contradictions to scripture, and are failing to acknowledge the big picture.

Again, there have been hundreds if not thousands of books, essays, etc. published on these matters. The links I sent you were random from a quick google search, do your own digging. Also the importance of cross validating information,  striving for objective research, and coming conclusions based on the comprehensive facts, can not be under emphasized.”
Grandma in Response: (1/24/14)

“Am sorry that you are being so defensive. Your mind seems to be already made up – so I don’t think I can discuss this situation any more with you.  I will do my own research, yet won’t dwell on only the negative ones as you seem to have.  Love you anyway!”

Me in Response: (1/24/14)

“Grandma, please know that I do not have a “defensive” disposition. I am only being honest and straight forward with you and making inferences based on our correspondences regarding these matters.

Much love.

Steve”

Me in Response: (1/24/14)

“And please know also, my mind is not “already made,” i am always searching for the truth and open to learning. If you can refute all of the facts and history that’s out there, and think you are able argue favorably to the contrary, I am open ears. The evidence is overwhelming. Remember, I have no vested interest, I was never interested in spirituality, religion, politics, history, etc. I never wanted to learn any of this, I never wanted to have to change my plans or lifestyle, all of which I’ve had to do as a result to God revealing himself and all of these facts to me.”

[End of Correspondence, Refutation never made.]

 

 

Some more facts that I find fascinating (1/24/14)

“I was looking for a list of Jesuit alumni I had come across before when I found these quotes:

“My history of the Jesuits is not eloquently written, but it is supported by unquestionable authorities, [and] is very particular and very horrible. Their [the Jesuit Order’s] restoration [in 1814 by Pope Pius VII] is indeed a step toward darkness, cruelty, despotism, [and] death. … I do not like the appearance of the Jesuits. If ever there was a body of men who merited eternal damnation on earth and in hell, it is this Society of [Ignatius de] Loyola.”
John Adams (1735-1826; 2nd President of the United States)

“It is my opinion that if the liberties of this country – the United States of America – are destroyed, it will be by the subtlety of the Roman Catholic Jesuit priests, for they are the most crafty, dangerous enemies to civil and religious liberty. They have instigated MOST of the wars of Europe.”
Marquis de LaFayette (1757-1834; French statesman and general. He served in the American Continental Army under the command of General George Washington during the American Revolutionary War.)

“The war [i.e., the American Civil War of 1861-1865] would never have been possible without the sinister influence of the Jesuits.”
Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865; 16th President of the United States)

“The Jesuits…are a secret society – a sort of Masonic order – with superadded features of revolting odiousness, and a thousand times more dangerous.” – Samuel Morse (1791-1872; American inventor of the telegraph; author of the book Foreign Conspiracy Against the Liberties of the United States)

“[The Jesuits] are the deadly enemies of civil and religious liberty.”
R. W. Thompson (Ex-Secretary, American Navy)

“The Jesuits are a MILITARY organization, not a religious order. Their chief is a general of an army, not the mere father abbot of a monastery. And the aim of this organization is power – power in its most despotic exercise – absolute power, universal power, power to control the world by the volition of a single man [i.e., the Black Pope, the Superior General of the Jesuits]. Jesuitism is the most absolute of despotisms [sic] – and at the same time the greatest and most enormous of abuses…”
Napoleon I (i.e., Napoleon Bonaparte; 1769-1821; emperor of the French)

Above all I have learned from the Jesuits. And so did Lenin too, as far as I recall. The world has never known anything quite so splnedid as the hierarchical structure of the [Roman] Catholic Church. There were quite a few things I simply appropriated from the Jesuits for the use fo the [Nazi] Party.”

Adolph Hitler (1889-1945; Nazi leader and chancellor of Germany from 1933-1945)

“Why would the Jesuits use their implacable enemy, the Jews to further their designs for world dominion? The Jesuits never do anything out in teh open where they can be exposed. If they are recognized as then cuprits, they will be blamed and suffer the consequencs, but if they can use somone else as the ’cause of the world’s problem’, especially an enemy they can destroy in the process, then they have simultaneously accomplished two of their objectives. The Jewish people are the perfect scapegoat. Since the Rothschilds are Jesuit agents operating under a Jewish cover, using them [i.e., the Rosthschilds]  in forming the Illuminati back in 1776 effectively throws onus of this conspiracy on the Jews. The rothschilds are certainly not the only Jesuit agents that operate under a Jewish front.”

 -William Sutton (Auther of The New Age Movement and Illuminati 666)

“If you trace Masonry, through all its Orders, till you come to the grand tip-top head Mason of the World, you will discover that the dread individual and the Cheif of the Society of Jesus [i.e., the Superior General of the Jesuit Order] are one and the same person.”

-James Parton (American Historian)

“[Jesuit Adam] Weishaupt established the [modern version of the] Illuminati specifically to be a front organization behind which the Jesuits could hide. After being [formally] ablished by [Pope] Clement XIV in 1773, the Jesuits used the Illuminati and other organizations to carry out their operations. Thus, the front organizations would be blamed for the troube caused by the Jesuits”

Bill Hughes (Author of the Secret Terrorists and the Enemy Unmasked)

Keep in mind that the current pope openly acknowledges that he is a jesuit.

Now getting to the list of of jesuit alumni, et al. Now mind you this list isn’t exhaustive and and doesn’t include other organizations serving in similar function., i.e club of rome, etc.

Jesuits

Notice all of the individuals of power. Also considering the above quotes, and the fact that the knights of malta use the same 2 headed phoenix in their crest as scottish rite freemasonry (you can just go to their websites to verify this: malta, mason) , Its also worth looking at the list of acknowledged freemasons.

It is also worth mentioning that the Knights of Columbus, implements the same cross that the nazis wore, and what’s more uses the “falling dove” symbol, which is an occult symbol for destruction, which also is shared by the the masonic “Ordo Templi Orientis” which bases it’s teachings on a Allester Crowley, who in his book “Magick in Theory and Practice”  wrote:

For the highest spiritual working one must accordingly choose that victim which contains the greatest and purest force. A male child of perfect innocence and high intelligence is the most satisfactory and suitable victim. For evocations it would be more convenient to place the blood of the victim in the Triangle — the idea being that the spirit might obtain from the blood this subtle but physical substance which was the quintessence of its life in such a manner as to enable it to take on a visible and tangible shape.

Those magicians who object to the use of blood have endeavored to replace it with incense. For such a purpose the incense of Abramelin may be burnt in large quantities. Dittany of Crete is also a valuable medium. Both these incenses are very catholic in their nature, and suitable for almost any materialization. But the bloody sacrifice, though more dangerous, is more efficacious; and for nearly all purposes human sacrifice is the best.”

You can verify these connections by  visiting their official websites.

“”it is curious to note too that most of the bodies which work these, such as the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, the Rite of Avignon, the Order of the Temple, Fessler’s Rite, the ‘Grand Council of the Emperors of the East and West — Sovereign Prince Masons,’ etc., etc., are nearly all the offspring of the sons of Ignatius Loyola. The Baron Hundt, Chevalier Ramsay, Tschoudy, Zinnendorf, and numerous others who founded the grades in these rites, worked under instructions from the General of the Jesuits.

Biblical Food for thought (and some additional extra-biblical footnotes)(1/28/14)

“I figured since I provided all of that non-biblical (mostly) information for you, I at least have to share with you the even more significant, scriptural accounts as they relates to these matters.

Now, perhaps its possible someone could try and argue that these are only “interpretations” of the scriptures (and perhaps if one were not filled with the Holy Spirit (because of un-repented sin, because they don’t accept Jesus, or for any other reason), they would truly lack discernment to to tell for certain), however, there are enough separate scriptures all of which the papacy fulfills, that it’s statistically impossible for it to be a coincidence, especially when coupled with the extra-biblical accounts of history, etc.

So I will go point by point, and keep in mind these are just based on the scriptures, and wisdom the Lord has imparted to me thus far, in the under 2 years since he’s been teaching me. I’m certain, as is always the case, there is more to learn.

Revelation 17:4 says the beast is clothed in purple and scarlet. (and goes on to describe her opulence; its also worth mentioning that the Vatican has been one of the largest possessors of wealth and land throughout history; We learned in my western civ class that the protestant reformation was kindled because the papacy was making so much money selling “salvation” to the poor from purgatory for their sins, and that’s how St. Peter’s Basilica was built.) There’s a book worth checking out called “Vatican Billions” by Arvo Manhattan.

Here’s Some additional links and perspectives:

And getting back to the scarlet and purple, there’s thousands of examples of pictures of cardinals, etc in purple and scarlet, I’ll provide a couple, but I’m sure as a catholic you are familiar.
 
Scarlet and purple  (also notice several of the cardinals are wearing the jesuit biretta)
1-The Bible says in Daniel 7:25 says that the the beast will wear out the saints (this is reflected in the innumerable crusades/inquisitions through papacy over the centuries, which can be compared in number and scale to no other)

2-The same scripture says the beast will change times and laws. The law to keep the sabbath (4th commandment), has been changed by the papacy to sunday, the first day of the week. (this is even implied by the celebration of Easter (resurrection of Christ) which is always held on Sunday, which the Bible says is the first day of the week, on which Jesus rose after resting on the sabbath (Mark 16:1-9)) But moreover, most dictionaries, especially older ones define Sunday as first day of the week.

3-Revelation 17:18 says that the beast reigneth over all the kings of the earth. And of course as I demonstrated to you in the previous email, a large number of men and women of power are either Masons (which I’ve demonstrated to you through the last couple emails are inexorably linked with jesuitism) , or graduate from jesuit universities. There is also plenty of information available covering these matters as they relate to other countries, internationally, etc.

This can be confused with no other historical event that would fulfill prophecy ( and I had sent you links in the first couple emails  of a few different accounts of Romes’s (through church leaders, etc) own admission to this fact)

4-Revelation 17:9, “And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sittith”

See link below

5-as addressed in a previous email, several papal/latin/roman add up to 666, the number of the beast in numerical value.

See link below
666(Also, referring again to the Jesuit seal, f you count all the rays, the bottom of the cross and the three nails, totaling at 36, and add all of them (i.e. 1+2+3+4… +32+33+34+35+36) you will also get 666. (try it yourself.)
6-in 1 timothy 4:1-3 the Scriptures tell us that in the latter times some will forbid to marry (as well as other attributes worth noting)

7-I also again refer to the use of the term “mystery” in the scriptures to describe this system. (Revelation 17:5, 2 Thessalonians 2:7)
While I believe it’s referring primarily to the fact that this religious system encompasses elements traditions of a number different religions (i.e. sun worship, mithraism, egyptian, babylonian, etc) I also as I mentioned to you the other day, find it very interesting that the a part of the rosary prayer are collectively known as “the mysteries.”
See links below

The Mysteries of the Rosary

(Also its worth mentioning the Romans (along with the jews) were responsible for the death of the cornerstone and savior of Biblical Christianity, Jesus himself. I don’t know ifs possible to get anymore anti-christ than that. Especially when we consider he was innocent and and beautifully selfless, loving, and honest human being.

Jesus, although turned over by the Jews who demanded he be sentenced to death, was ultimately sentenced to the roman method of execution (crucifixion) by Roman leader Pontius Pilate. Part of this was because “Jewish leaders remind him that Jesus’s claim to be king is a challenge to Roman rule and to the Roman deification of Caesar”)
See links below
Pontius Pilate  (see section “Responsibility for Jesus’ Death”)

That ends the Biblical food for thought list. But also, I’d like to mention I stumbled upon a book titled “The Priest, the Woman and the Confessional.” by former roman catholic priest Charles Chiniquy (1809-1899) which is available to read online here. I have no idea what’s it about but, I do know that Charles Chiniquy also wrote a book called “50 years in the Church of Rome” (which can be found online here), and figured that perhaps you would like to check them out.

Finally I leave you with a few scriptures from the Word of God that I believe suggest a call to action.

“And I (John) heard another voice from heaven saying come out of her, my people that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”
-revelation 18:4

” Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord.”

-Isaiah 52:11

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.”
-2 Corinthians 6:14,17

“Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”
-2 Corinthians 7:1

“Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”

-Amos 3:3

“My son, fear thou the Lord and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change”

-Proverbs 24:21

“The righteous is more excellent than his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them.”

-Proverbs 12:26

“He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”

-Proverbs 13:20

“Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge”
Proverbs 14:7

“Do not be so deceived and misled! Evil companionships (communion, associations) corrupt and deprave good manners and morals and character.”
-1 Corinthians 15:33 (Amplified)
Love you grandma, may you be blessed and kept by the Lord, always. I hope this information along with the other emails full of information and resources has at least given you a place to start  in terms of seeking while seeking to do the will of God in the name of Messiah Jesus Christ.”

  • Cross and Crown
    by James D. McCabe Jr.This book a powerful and thrilling recital of the most romantic and dramatic incidents to be found on record, told in the simplest, most graphic, and entertaining form. Not a history of the Reformation, nor a series of complete biographic of the Reformers, it seeks but to call attention to the most vital principles of Protestantism, and to impress them upon the mind of the reader by the relation of some of the most striking instances of Protestant martyrdom.The precious heritage which we enjoy of Gospel truth and religious freedom was won for us by our fathers with blood and suffering. In defense of a free Bible, they went to the stake, gladly enduring persecution and death, that those who survived or came after them might enjoy the rights purchased with their blood.It is fitting, then, that. we should not forget those to whom we owe so much, but that the story of their lives should ever be kept in grateful remembrance. Why should not we dwell upon the memory of the heroes of the Church; the brave and patient Christian men and women who died for our religious freedom; who gave us the Bible at the cost of their lives, and brought Christ back to us as our personal Savior and friend? A nobler, sweeter, and more solemn story is not to be found in all the range of history.The work is perfectly free from sectarian bias. The cause is that of Christ and His Church, a cause dear to every Christian heart, and no effort has been made to discuss or advocate the claims of any denomination.

Additional scripture & Other pertinent info(4/20/15)

“Some additional scriptures to meditate/pray on as we seek to overcome our junkfood addiction that weren’t included in the ‘easy-way handout’

1 Corinthians 10:13

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Psalm 141:4

Hebrews 13:5

Romans 8:5-8, 12-13

Galatians 5:16-18, 24-25

Matthew 6:13

1 Peter 2:11

Psalm 119:103

Psalm 19:10

Acts 17:11

1 Corinthians 15:31

Titus 2:11-13

Luke 9:23

1 Peter 1:17-19

John 5:39

Ephesians 6:13

Also another key point I remembered which wasn’t included in the ‘easy-way handout’, which Mr. Carr makes clear in his book is that there are two additional factors critical in determining our success, namely to A) decide on the timing to quit once and for all  (‘cold tukey’ as the saying goes) and B) to never doubt our decision, knowing we’ve analyzed it, weighed the pros and cons,  and thought it through; knowing we’re making the right decision. (which reminds me of the example God has provided for us in his good book, teaching us to never look back to our old ways, IE. when lots wife looked back to sodom & gomorrah, symbolic of sin; which led to her being turned into a pillar of salt.  gen 19:24-26 )

It’s also worth mentioning that after a couple of weeks; as our bodies/brains get restored to there natural state; we will no longer crave such foods; and not eating them will become a ‘habit’ or natural, and additionally we will feel even better for the many reasons: spiritual, physical, and psychological. (it is the junkfood that creates the perceived need to eat the junkfood; people who don’t eat junkfood don’t crave it)

Another factor which I find particularly motivating in making the decision to give this stuff up; which perhaps you should also consider; is how historically sugar has been used to wrought much evil in enslaving (literally), controlling, and shedding innocent blood. Here are a couple links to an article and a scan from a history book; Livescience.com: How Sugar Changed the World, Western Civilization: A Brief History by Jackson Spielvogel.

And here is a link of an article ( 2014) which documents how this is still an issue today (also contains a video documentary on the page) Dominican Republic: Modern Day Sugarcane Slavery

And last but CERTAINLY not least, we return to the Alisa & Gabriel ‘whistleblower kids’ case. It turns out that sweets and candy were the ‘currency’ that the children were being paid in order to control them/get them to offer themselves to be raped. This is documented in an interview with Ella draper (mother) and Abraham Christie (her partner) which can be found on youtube HERE specifically addressed at 00:23:06-00:28:40.

God Bless”

Tytler Cycle(5/4/15)

“”A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.”
“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

  • From bondage to spiritual faith;
  • From spiritual faith to great courage;
  • From courage to liberty;
  • From liberty to abundance;
  • From abundance to complacency;
  • From complacency to apathy;
  • From apathy to dependence;
  • From dependence back into bondage

In rome, for all the ‘faithful’ to worship… (7/2/15)

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3146906/Haunting-images-beautifully-preserved-saints-remains-displayed-faithful-worship-Italy.html
Grandma in Response: (7/3/15)

“Interesting article Steve!  Had no idea these saints were on display!  As far as my understanding goes, nobody “worships” the saints.  We only worship God alone.  If anything, people may think the saint more holy than themselves and therefore closer to God.  So people may ask that saint to intervene for them to God.  They don’t realize that they themselves can come to the feet of the Savior and ask anything according to His will and they will receive!  There is a lot of superstition out there for sure!”

Me in Response: (7/3/15)

“Well, the only reason I sent you that article was because I happened to spot it in the headlines and it made me think of you (as it regards catholicism), my intentions were not to get into a lengthy discussion. Nonetheless after reading your reply I feel a clear response is necessary.

It should be noted the article is not anti-catholic, so when it says Catholic’s worship… it’s not like it’s attempting to paint them in a bad light, it just is what it is. Now even if it were only as you suggested, as intercessors, that still goes against the Bible. The fact of the matter is they are dead until the resurrection (1 Thess. 4:16, Daniel 12:2, John 5:28-29, Hebrews 11:39-40, etc.) so they couldn’t intercede if they wanted to.
(That’s just one of many points that could be made to demonstrate it’s wrong according to scriptures, but it’s my aim is to keep this as short, simple, and to the point as possible)I must also add, I sent you an e-mail on 1/23/14 titled “Extra-Biblical Food for Thought” which contained four links with even more such spectacles (link 1, link 2, link 3, link 4) but I guess you didn’t see them.

What saddens me the most and thus must God even more so, is your response indicates that you still identify with the papacy (“We only worship God alone”). In John 4:24 Jesus stated, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”

Between the papacy forbidding it’s members to read the Bible, burning it’s translators to the common tongue at the steak, slaughtering and torturing countless millions of other protestants, building st. peter’s basillica off selling “indulgences” to the poor under the pretense the people would spend less time in purgatory (cited source), claiming the pope is Christ on earth, changing the sabbath to SUNday, and everything else I’ve tried to share with you, as it relates to prophecy, history, etc I just don’t understand how you can still associate with the papacy. (unless you are bound) If you truly believe what you confess, the papacy is no friend of yours.

Next time you go to church, take a look in the corner and you’ll see a yellow and white flag with a triple crown, and two keys on it. The triple crown represents the popes claim to be king of heaven, earth, and the underworld. The two keys represent his professed temporal power (to rule the world) and spiritual power (to rule the minds and worship of men).

“Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.”
2 Thessalonians 3:6
“…Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”
Revelation 18:4
“Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”

Amos 3:3

Be ye not unequally yoked.. for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness.. And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols?…”
2 Corinthians 6:14-16

Once again, this matter is between you and God. I have no vested interest in what you do, other than I want what’s best for you. It’s simply my duty to inform my fellow man,  especially if they’re my dear family, and  ESPECIALLY if they proclaim the name Jesus Christ. May He be a light unto your feet and guide you as the psalmist David wrote.

With much love,
Steve”

A reading from a book written in 1842 The Great Apostasy, Joseph Berg (10/20/15)

Henry Lee Lucas (1/23/16)

“By happenstance, I’ve discovered there was another book published about Henry Lee Lucas, bearing the same subtitle as Clementine Schroeder’s; namely, “The Henry Lee Lucas Story” by Max Call, except this one painting quite different portrait of Mr. Lucas.

While being published 8 years before “Sister Clem’s,” this book, titled “Hand of Death” documents how Lucas claimed “to be the slayer of over 600 victims” and part of “A nationwide satanic cult of death. Human sacrifices. A conspiracy. Necrophillia.

After reviewing the only comment posted on amazon.com regarding the book, which I will link to below, it appears the book does also document his apparent acceptance of Christ. Of course after becoming aware of his history of satan worship, the murder of multiple hundreds, and human sacrifice, one can’t help but wonder how genuine his repentance was. The same was also said of Ted Bundy, namely that he accepted Christ before death.

Luckily that’s not for us to concern ourselves with, God knows the hearts of men, will not be mocked and will judge with equity; therefore I believe when dealing with these types of individuals we have to give them the benefit of the doubt, that the light of Christ in us not be impeded by cynicism. After all with God all things are possible, so who knows, I suppose He could bring such a man to Godly sorrow which worketh repentance and leads to salvation (2 Corinthians 7:10) and therefore he could’ve be saved similarly to the thief on the cross. If that’s the case however, I can’t imagine his degree of reward in heaven (Romans 2:6, Revelation 22:12)

Anyways I know that’s kind of dark, but sometimes the truth is. I’ve yet to read Clem’s book (or Call’s obviously) but got the impression she probably didn’t mention such details; also in flipping through her book I noticed lovely and quaint painting’s of Lucas’ such as one titled “Christian Mission” of a church etc… but apparently that wasn’t all he was busy painting while in prison. (link to those other paintings below… (grandma safe, not gross or x-rated, just quite dark/demonic imagery)

Now I also must mention I find it quite coincidental that Call’s book shares the same subtitle as Clem’s, and therefore I’m reasonably unable to dismiss the possibility (however unlikely) that Clem’s book was published to cover-up the published info in the previous book regarding the nationwide satanic cult and conspiracy. (perhaps even unbeknownst to her.)

While I’m not making any accusations or judgments (Definition: to sit in the place of a judge, i.e. to Justify or Condemn,) as I believe only God to be fit for that duty; I must address the very real possibilities of these things, in light of these discoveries, and bring these things to light in contending for the truth, and exposing the darkness and lies.

Anyways, so the main reason I’m sending all this to you is because it was so peculiar how all this information fell “into my lap.” I happened to hear his name mentioned in a radioshow and looked it up because I knew it sounded familiar but wasn’t sure from where, and that’s how I discovered all of this. But also because I knew you were familiar with the guy, and I suppose most importantly in case you, like me, had no idea how dark this guy’s past was, as I got the impression from reading the back of Clem’s book that he was falsely accused and wrongfully incarcerated.

“With Jesus I’ve been able to fergive all those who’ve wronged me… In God’s Holy Bible I have found strength to stick it out an’ face the hardships an’ unjust…. Signed, Henry Lee Lucas”

I guess If nothing else understanding that this type of darkness actually exists (people worshiping/sacrificing other humans to satan, etc.) can serve as a witness to us and help us to truly believe in, and cherish all the more the light of Christ.

Catholic Source: Pope Implies Jesus Was a Sinner (3/9/2016)

The Pope reflected on the Sunday reading from the Gospel of Luke in which a young Jesus stayed in Jerusalem in the Temple, causing great distress to Mary and Joseph when they could not find him.

“For this little ‘escapade,’ Jesus probably had to beg forgiveness of his parents,” the Pope suggested. “The Gospel doesn’t say this, but I believe that we can presume it.”

From Vatican’s Official website:

Catholicism on Justification by Faith (3/9/2016)

First, what does the Bible say about faith?

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” -Ephesians 2:8-9“But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.” -Galatians 3:11

Now, what is official catholic doctrine?

If any one saith, that by faith alone the impious is justified; in such wise as to mean, that nothing else is required to co-operate in order to the obtaining the grace of Justification, and that it is not in any way necessary, that he be prepared and disposed by the movement of his own will; let him be anathema.” -Council of Trent, 6th Session, CANON IX, “On Justification

http://www.thecounciloftrent.com/ch6.htm

And what do the church fathers write concerning ‘heretics’ and ‘liberals’?

“I answer that, With regard to heretics two points must be observed: one, on their own side; the other, on the side of the Church. On their own side there is the sin, whereby they deserve not only to be separated from the Church by excommunication, but also to be severed from the world by death. For it is a much graver matter to corrupt the faith which quickens the soul, than to forge money, which supports temporal life. Wherefore if forgers of money and other evil-doers are forthwith condemned to death by the secular authority, much more reason is there for heretics, as soon as they are convicted of heresy, to be not only excommunicated but even put to death.”

-St. Thomas Aquinas, “Summa Theologica,” Secunda Secundae Partis, Q.11, Article 3

http://www.newadvent.org/summa/3011.htm#article3


You may rightfully ask so one man wrote that what difference does that make?

Well here’s a link from the vatican’s official website regarding this man:

“Thomistic doctrine which deals with humanity, given that his assertions on the dignity of the human person and the use of his reason, in perfect harmony with the faith, make St. Thomas a teacher for our time”

Col. 2:16/Law in NT, Sabbath (10/06/2016)

A couple weeks ago Grandma sent me a question asking me how to reconcile Col. 2:16 with Sabbath keeping being the mar/sign/seal of true believers. I no longer have the date as that email address (including the record of our correspondence) was provided by educational institution, and has since been terminated as I’m no longer a student. None the less I’ve given an estimated date above, and luckily I had saved my response in Microsoft Word which may be found below:

To believe that Christians are not subject to the 10-commandents, is perhaps thee most ludicrous and overall Bible-rejecting conclusion one could ever come to. As I will prove for you later on in this response with scriptural references, each one of the 10-commandments is re-iterated in the New Testament. What such a notion is essentially stating, is that Jesus died and suffered what He did, not to free us from our captivity to sin and law-breaking to the end that He’d purify unto himself a Holy and obedient people (Jn. 14:15; Lk. 6:46) zealous of good works (Tit. 2:14), but so that we can live however we want and so that it would become acceptable to break the law. No Christian filled with the Holy Spirit and who really knows the Word would ever, even for a second, think to proclaim that it’s okay to break any of the other nine commandments such don’t kill, don’t steal, don’t lie, don’t commit adultery, don’t have other gods, etc. wouldn’t you agree? But how fascinating the only one of the 10-commandments which begins with the word “Remember” (Ex. 20:8) gets rejected. Could it be that God in his omniscience was onto something when inspiring such wording?

Jer. 31:31-33 clearly indicates of the “new covenant”, that the law would be placed in our hearts so that it could be obeyed, and furthermore the whole of the New Testament, including epistles of Paul, Peter, and John, all clearly, absolutely, and categorically reinforce such a conclusion (for example see Rom. 7:12-13; 1 Tim. 1:8; Rom. 3:31; Mt. 5:17-19; Rev. 14:12; Rev. 12:14; 1 Jn 2:3-4; 1 Jn. 5:2-3; 1 Jn. 3:4,9-10, etc.)

It should go without saying that the Holy Spirit isn’t going to lead by some standard that’s arbitrary, or even contrary to the 10-commandments. No law = lawlessness.
Now, regarding Col. 2:16, and the 4th commandment to keep Sabbath, the first thing to note, is that most of the early expositors, such as John Gill, were sunday-keepers, as they had just broken away from the Catholic church, from where the tradition of sunday-observance has its origin as is indicated even by her own writers (see historic quotes, including those documented on my blog, for absolute proof of this. Links for those will be provided at the end of this response). And sadly, it’s a matter of fact that most protestants never fully broke away from the un-scriptural traditions of men unto a pure Bible-based Gospel and that those who did, such as the Waldenses for example, were generally physically destroyed as a people as well as their writings and histories. Folks such as Gill who were ignorantly deceived in into keeping sunday, while yet seeking to obey and justify according the Word, naturally fell victim to such a subtle and erroneous interpretation.  But even so, there were certain expositors who still got it, which we will get to in a second. The reason it says “Sabbath Days” (plural), is because it was not talking about the weekly Sabbath (singular) of the 10-commandments, but the high feast days, or in other words the Feast of trumpets, Atonement, Passover, Unleavened bread, and Tabernacles (see Lev. 23:24, etc.), which were, mandated, or in other words, the Jews were commanded to keep them as part of the civil law of Moses, written by the hand of man (indicating their temporariness, to be done away with at Calvary) as oppose to the 10-commandments, written by the hand of God, in stone (indicating their permanence: Ex. 31:18/Ecc. 3:14).

(See also Mark 7:8-9)

This is why, although it’s good to study what others have written, the Bible must be the ultimately be the final authority. But even still, as I indicated above, certain of the Expositors did get it, check out what Albert Barnes (1798-1840) had to say:

Or of the Sabbath days – Greek, “of the Sabbaths.” The word Sabbath in the Old Testament is applied not only to the seventh day, but to all the days of holy rest that were observed by the Hebrews, and particularly to the beginning and close of their great festivals. There is, doubtless, reference to those days in this place, since the word is used in the plural number, and the apostle does not refer particularly to the Sabbath properly so called. There is no evidence from this passage that he would teach that there was no obligation to observe any holy time, for there is not the slightest reason to believe that he meant to teach that one of the ten commandments had ceased to be binding on mankind. If he had used the word in the singular number – “the Sabbath,” it would then, of course, have been clear that he meant to teach that that commandment had ceased to be binding, and that a Sabbath was no longer to be observed. But the use of the term in the plural number, and the connection, show that he had his eye on the great number of days which were observed by the Hebrews as festivals, as a part of their ceremonial and typical law, and not to the moral law, or the Ten Commandments. No part of the moral law – no one of the ten commandments could be spoken of as “a shadow of good things to come.” These commandments are, from the nature of moral law, of perpetual and universal obligation.http://biblehub.com/commentaries/colossians/2-16.htm

 

or likewise Jamieson-Fausset-Brown (1871):

the sabbath—Omit “THE,” which is not in the Greek (compare Note, see on [2419]Ga 4:10). “Sabbaths” (not “the sabbaths”) of the day of atonement and feast of tabernacles have come to an end with the Jewish services to which they belonged (Le 23:32, 37-39). The weekly sabbath rests on a more permanent foundation, having been instituted in Paradise to commemorate the completion of creation in six days. Le 23:38 expressly distinguished “the sabbath of the Lord” from the other sabbaths. A positive precept is right because it is commanded, and ceases to be obligatory when abrogated; a moral precept is commanded eternally, because it is eternally right. If we could keep a perpetual sabbath, as we shall hereafter, the positive precept of the sabbath, one in each week, would not be needed. Heb 4:9, “rests,” Greek, “keeping of sabbath” (Isa 66:23). But we cannot, since even Adam, in innocence, needed one amidst his earthly employments; therefore the sabbath is still needed and is therefore still linked with the other nine commandments, as obligatory in the spirit, though the letter of the law has been superseded by that higher spirit of love which is the essence of law and Gospel alike (Ro 13:8-10).” http://biblehub.com/commentaries/colossians/2-16.htm

This is a perfect example why it’s so critical and essential, not only to to take any given verse within the context of the entirety of scripture (with an emphasis, being on the New Testament canon), but also why it’s dangerous to base doctrines on supposition rather than what’s explicitly stated or even implied for that matter, or in other words, to come up with doctrine based on what the Bible DOESN’T say (i.e. such as a supposed substitution of sunday for the Seventh-day Sabbath instituted at creation (Gen. 2:2; Ex. 20:11, Hebrews 4:4) to be kept even in heaven (Is. 66:23), commanded in the old testament to be kept by God (Ex. 20:8, Deut. 5:12), and re-iterated in the New Testament (Heb. 4:9, keep in mind what I showed you from my Thayer’s Greek lexicon, the underlying greek for “rest” there, Sabbatismos, means a keeping of Sabbath, see link to follow)).

https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?t=kjv&strongs=g4520
Each one of the 10-Commandments is re-iterated in the New Testament:

  1. Mt. 4:10; 1 Cor. 8:4-6; Rev. 19:10
  2. 1 Jn. 5:21; 1 Cor. 6:9; Acts 17:29; Acts 15:20; 1 Th. 1:9
  3. 1 Tm. 6:1; Mt. 6:9
  4. Heb. 4:1-11
  5. Eph. 6:1-3, Mt. 19:19
  6. Rom. 13:9; Js. 2:11; Rom. 1:29
  7. 1 Cor. 6:9; Mt. 19:18
  8. Rom. 13:9; Eph. 4:20, 28
  9. Rom. 13:9; Eph. 4:25, 29-30
  10. Rom. 7:7; 1 Cor. 6:10; Col. 3:5

And then once one incorporates the historic record from innumerable sources protestant, secular, and catholic alike, proving that the primitive and truly-apostolic churches maintained observance of the Seventh-day Sabbath, with current events (such as U.S. Senator Sylvia Brown, Pope, Francis, and the U.N. pushing for mandatory sunday-laws), there can be absolutely no question about the veracity of the truth. Again, that’s why I’ve obeyed the Lord, and invested countless hundreds of hours in writing and publishing the content I have, which once again, I would encourage you to carefully, prayerfully, and meditatively read through, as in taking such a comprehensive approach, there can be left no room for doubt, even to the most skeptical of minds.

For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?-Hebrews 10:26-29

My New Email Address (12/8/16)

My college email has been terminated, this will be the one to use going forward.

And I suppose now as good a time as any other to ‘deliver’ concerning our thanksgiving diner conversation regarding clean and unclean meats in the Bible, specifically on whether or not it was still relevant for Christians.

I will start by citing the prophecy which indicates the Lord, at his second coming, will still find eating pork (as well as the other unclean meats) an abomination which he will judge. Then I will provide a nice little article I recently discovered which addresses the matters from a scriptural perspective. Finally I will provide a very simple little chart outlining clean/unclean foods.

For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many. They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.-Isaiah 66:15-17

Grandma in response: (12/8/16)

“Got the new e-mail noted!  Also read everything below.  Whatever you eat, if eaten unto the Lord, it is good for you.  But take in mind Luke 41-42, Acts 11 and Romans 14.”

Me in response: (12/8/16)

“Grandma, be careful. I’m not sure whether you’ve heaped unto yourself teachers, having itching ears, or if those “objections” are rather based on your own understanding, but in either case they’re the result of wresting scripture and not rightly dividing the word of truth, whilst failing to observe both their immediate contexts, as well as it regards that in light of the whole of scripture. As your statement of conclusion in response to my email ultimately illustrates, there’s an equitable reason why women granting themselves spiritual authority to determine theological doctrine is contrary to the Spirit, order, and inspired Word of God: “But I suffer not a woman to teach…” because “…the woman being deceived was in the transgression.” (1 Tim. 2:12-14) Be sure, this is essentially what’s happening here, even if it’s manifested as you choosing “teachers” which may be men, merely based on the grounds of their espousing a a perspective which you prefer regardless of it’s veracity.

(I should add that if the subject of clean/un-clean meats perhaps seems a rather trivial aspect of theology, you must have missed the implications of Isaiah 66:15-17)

In any case, I presume it goes without saying that it makes no difference to me whether or not you choose to continue to eat pork, etc. The only reason I chose to include that info in my email to you this morning was because it came up at thanksgiving, I told you I’d send you more info, and in accordance to the Word of God I strive to be a person who follows through with what he says he is going to do. But I am concerned with your walk, well-being, and spiritual status in Christ, especially as this conversation illustrates a reoccurring theme that I’ve noticed over the years, namely, that despite spiritual instruction, you rather go about doing whatsoever suites you, whether based on your feelings, reasoning, etc. I cannot say; but even when it’s ultimately contrary to the Word of God; and thus I fear, reflects a greater spiritual issue at its root, which for thy soul’s sake, must needs be addressed between you and God.

I cannot help you if you think you’re presently doing just fine; if you take my words lightly, as merely an opinion, or with suspicion. Neither can I help you if you refuse to grow in Godliness in obedience to the Word. If you believe the Word of God, i.e. the Holy Bible, and seek to live and do it, you will ultimately be listening and submitting to somebody as an authority as it concerns spiritual matters. The question will ultimately be who is that going to be, and do they really have your best interest in mind, and are they going to be honest with you, even if it hurts? And will their instruction ultimately therefore lead you to hear on judgement day “well done thou good and faithful servant” or “I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity“. If it’s ultimately contrary to the Word and will of God, you can be sure it’s not of the Holy Spirit.

No doubt the sign of true discipleship and a real personal relationship with Christ, of an one who deeply cherishes what He did at Calvary, will be obedience to His Word.

The Lord has brought me as “a voice” into your life regarding spiritual/religious matters. Either I’m filled with the Holy Spirit and my understanding and instruction come from above, namely the God of the Bible, and therefore the voices to whom you tend to take heed are wrong; or vice versa, it cannot be both at the same time, as the espoused theologies are in nearly all aspects contrary. I could refute each point and scripture you mentioned above while bringing in many other to make my point irrefutably, but again and again, I find myself impressed by the Spirit of Christ that the words I speak more-or-less fall on deaf ears. I therefore must regretfully suppose it a waste of time to continue to discuss religious matters in any sort of depth with you.

I believe it’d be exceeding wise to spend some serious, deep, thoughtful, and heartfelt time (at length even) crying out and humbling of yourself before God in prayer and fastings, seeking a greater outpouring of the Holy Spirit; that His divine guidance and instruction be renewed and with power in your life, and especially that He would reveal to you where you’re in rebellion to to Him, His Word, and not living fully for Him. Such would no doubt be time well spent for all of us. To the wise, everything else will be secondary to obedience to God’s Word, fellowship with the Holy Spirit, and in rendering our service and time to Him. Time is running out. Seek repentance, conviction of sin, and the gift of tears.

With Love in Christ”
