Test All Things Pt. 7 – A Little Leaven

By Terrence Straughterleavenandunleaven

Truth…truth…truth…truth…truth…truth…damnable heresy…truth…truth…truth…truth

“A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump” (Galatians 5:9). We have to understand this is what Satan’s ministers do. They are up there preaching ‘Jesus’ and look just like they are of Christ, the scriptures clearly tell us this is the case with them (2Corinthians 11:12-15).

The most deceptive lies are the ones closest to the truth. If they hold to anything that’s going to “accurse” us, and themselves as well, first, they need correction (Galatians 1:6-9). Bible says warn them twice in Titus 3:10, and to reject them if they don’t receive. These are crucial truths to be accepted, like the Gospel, and essentials of the faith that we can’t deny and have eternal life. Not every doctrinal difference calls for separation.

Now if they rebel then you are to mark, avoid and expose them. (Romans 16:17,18, Ephesians 5:11,12) They are leading people astray. So you tell the church, “So and so is teaching another gospel.” It’s not gossip and slander like people want to call it. It’s in the open, leading people astray. So the exposé is not revealing anything behind closed doors. Instead, someone is ignorantly or proudly teaching heresy out in public, or maybe their doctrinal statement of faith denies Jesus is God, or something else. Well, it’s deceiving openly, so we are to correct openly.

It’s just sad when people don’t want anything said. The Bible calls these people, evil doers, and wolves, and we need to know them and separate from the rebels. That’s not hate. That’s obedience, and love, to keep the sheep away from them. You already know that God wants his church without spot, or wrinkle. Well don’t play with the wolves then. They are in the church as written in Jude. That’s sad when people know someone is a heretic but they want to get a word from them. God says don’t give them God speed or you are a partaker of their evil deeds (2John 1:8-11).

I could possibly listen to someone like Creflo Dollar, and his whole sermon could be biblical, and helpful, but because I know his gospel, it’s wrong and disobedient to God. We don’t need a word from heretics go to God, or a sibling in the faith.

God bless

The Other Side of Mother Teresa

Mother-Teresa_805

Roman Catholicism is a religion that does not teach the true gospel of salvation that is taught in Scripture. Therefore, its clergymen, and clergywomen, are not believers in the Jesus of the Bible. Jesus warned his followers of false prophets, and called them ravenous wolves. He said that they can be identified by their fruits.

Matthew 7

15    “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
16    You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?
17    Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.
18    A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.
19    Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
20    Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

The bad fruit of Roman Catholic clergymen is their damnable heresies, and where there is false doctrine there can also be found other bad fruits.

Mother Teresa’s refusal to accept food or drink (and her taking the money instead for the poor) is nothing but an affectation aimed at impressing the media (“Deifying Diana, an icon for India”, 5 October). She routinely travelled first class on planes. And a large amount, if not the majority, of the money she collected was spent on religious activities, such as on the upkeep of the hundreds of nunneries (which have no charitable functions) that her order maintains around the world.

Re-using old needles in her homes in India is normal practice (I speak as a former volunteer at her home for the dying in Calcutta), but she herself had treatments which only the richest Indians can afford; she also had treatment at exclusive clinics such as the Scripps at La Jolla, California.

It is true that she was not too well disposed toward actresses playing her, but it is also true that she appeared in at least a dozen documentaries advertising her faith and her “humility”.

The late Mother Teresa’s saintly image has been called into question by researchers conducting an in-depth study of her life.

Mother Teresa may have spent the vast majority of her 87 years looking after the sick and poor, but researchers from Montreal and Ottawa universities have now raised questions over the ‘dubious’ nature of her care, as well querying her “questionable” political contacts.

The researchers also raised concerns over the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s ‘suspicious’ financial arrangements, which they claim saw large sums of money transferred into her ‘secret’ bank accounts.

Writing in the Journal of Studies in Religion/Sciences after analysing around 300 documents surrounding Mother Teresa’s life, Dr Serge Larivie and Dr Genevieve Chenard say they have uncovered details that compromise the Albanian-born nun’s saintly image.

They claim that many of the ‘missions’ set up by Mother Teresa were unfit for their inhabitants, calling them ‘homes for the dying’ due to their poor hygiene and a shortage of food, care and medication.

The researchers believe a lack of money cannot be the reason for the poor conditions however, as Mother Teresa raised hundreds of millions of pounds during her lifetime, although much of that money apparently appears to have vanished into several ‘secret’ bank accounts reportedly kept by the nun.

The researchers also questioned why, despite openly offering prayers and medallions bearing depictions of the Virgin Mary, Mother Teresa provided no direct or monetary aid to victims of a number of natural disasters in India.

Dr Larivie says: “Given the parsimonious management of Mother Teresa’s works, one may ask where the millions of dollars for the poorest of the poor have gone?”

The researchers went on to query Mother Teresa’s politics and political contacts, accusing her of accepting a financial grant from the brutal Duvalier dictatorship, which is deemed responsible for the murders of over 30,000 Haitians between 1957 and 1986.

They also accuse Mother Teresa of spreading hardline right wing Catholic ideology, saying she held “overly dogmatic views regarding, in particular, abortion, contraception and divorce.”

Dr Larivie said that much of Mother Teresa’s saintly public image was shaped by the BBC journalist Malcolm Muggeridge, who shared her conservative Catholic views, particularly on abortion, and whose promotion of her led to the nun’s international fame.

Despite the negatives, Dr Larivie accepts there are many positive aspects to Mother Teresa’s life and work.

He said: “If the extraordinary image of Mother Teresa conveyed in the collective imagination has encouraged humanitarian initiatives that are genuinely engaged with those crushed by poverty, we can only rejoice.”

He added: “It is likely that she has inspired many humanitarian workers whose actions have truly relieved the suffering of the destitute and addressed the causes of poverty and isolation without being extolled by the media…Nevertheless, the media coverage of Mother Teresa could have been a little more rigorous.”

Mother Teresa died in 1997 and was beatified by the Catholic Church in 2003, leaving her just one miracle away from sainthood.

Radical Takeover Pt. 10 – The First Jesuit Pope & His Ruthless Jesuit Order

popefrancis

The media is making a big deal about the fact that the new pope is the first Jesuit pope ever to be elected. However, most people in the world are not understanding what they are being told, because most people are not familiar with the Jesuit order, and its history, which is entrenched in conspiracy, assassinations, deception, political, and religious, infiltration, bribery, and secret societies. The Jesuit order was started in 1540 by Ignatius of Loyola, and it has been the most feared, and, hated, Roman Catholic order of priests, because it is Rome’s military, central intelligence agency, inquisitors, theologians, and deceptive philosophers, to the world. The Jesuit’s goal is to bring the Protestant church, and the world, under the authority of Rome. The order’s means of accomplishing this goal is pure pragmatism, and ruthlessness, as stated below.

The Jesuit Oath Exposed

[The following is the text of the Jesuit Extreme Oath of Induction as recorded in the Journals of the 62nd Congress, 3rd Session, of the United States Congressional Record (House Calendar No. 397, Report No. 1523, 15 February, 1913, pp. 3215-3216), from which it was subsequently torn out. The Oath is also quoted by Charles Didier in his book Subterranean Rome (New York, 1843), translated from the French original. Dr. Alberto Rivera, who escaped from the Jesuit Order in 1967, confirms that the induction ceremony and the text of the Jesuit Oath which he took were identical to what we have cited below. – A. N.]

When a Jesuit of the minor rank is to be elevated to command, he is conducted into the Chapel of the Convent of the Order, where there are only three others present, the principal or Superior standing in front of the altar. On either side stands a monk, one of whom holds a banner of yellow and white, which are the Papal colours, and the other a black banner with a dagger and red cross above a skull and crossbones, with the word INRI, and below them the words IUSTUM NECAR REGES IMPIUS. The meaning of which is: It is just to exterminate or annihilate impious or heretical Kings, Governments, or Rulers.

Upon the floor is a red cross at which the postulant or candidate kneels. The Superior hands him a small black crucifix, which he takes in his left hand and presses to his heart, and the Superior at the same time presents to him a dagger, which he grasps by the blade and holds the point against his heart, the Superior still holding it by the hilt, and thus addresses the postulant:

(The Superior speaks:)

My son, heretofore you have been taught to act the dissembler: among Roman Catholics to be a Roman Catholic, and to be a spy even among your own brethren; to believe no man, to trust no man. Among the Reformers, to be a Reformer; among the Huguenots, to be a Huguenot; among the Calvinists, to be a Calvinist; among other Protestants, generally to be a Protestant; and obtaining their confidence, to seek even to preach from their pulpits, and to denounce with all the vehemence in your nature our Holy Religion and the Pope; and even to descend so low as to become a Jew among Jews, that you might be enabled to gather together all information for the benefit of your Order as a faithful soldier of the Pope. You have been taught to plant insidiously the seeds of jealousy and hatred between communities, provinces, states that were at peace, and to incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war with each other, and to create revolutions and civil wars in countries that were independent and prosperous, cultivating the arts and the sciences and enjoying the blessings of peace; to take sides with the combatants and to act secretly with your brother Jesuit, who might be engaged on the other side, but openly opposed to that with which you might be connected, only that the Church might be the gainer in the end, in the conditions fixed in the treaties for peace and that the end justifies the means. You have been taught your duty as a spy, to gather all statistics, facts and information in your power from every source; to ingratiate yourself into the confidence of the family circle of Protestants and heretics of every class and character, as well as that of the merchant, the banker, the lawyer, among the schools and universities, in parliaments and legislatures, and the judiciaries and councils of state, and to be all things to all men, for the Pope’s sake, whose servants we are unto death. You have received all your instructions heretofore as a novice, a neophyte, and have served as co-adjurer, confessor and priest, but you have not yet been invested with all that is necessary to command in the Army of Loyola in the service of the Pope. You must serve the proper time as the instrument and executioner as directed by your superiors; for none can command here who has not consecrated his labours with the blood of the heretic; for “without the shedding of blood no man can be saved”. Therefore, to fit yourself for your work and make your own salvation sure, you will, in addition to your former oath of obedience to your order and allegiance to the Pope, repeat after me:

(Text of the Oath:)

I_______________ , now in the presence of Almighty God, the blessed Virgin Mary, the blessed St. John the Baptist, the Holy Apostles, St. Peter and St. Paul, and all the saints, sacred host of Heaven, and to you, my Ghostly Father, the superior general of the Society of Jesus, founded by St. Ignatius Loyola, in the pontification of Paul the Third, and continued to the present, do by the womb of the Virgin, the matrix of God, and the rod of Jesus Christ, declare and swear that His Holiness, the Pope, is Christ’s Vice-Regent and is the true and only head of the Catholic or Universal Church throughout the earth; and that by the virtue of the keys of binding and loosing given to His Holiness by my Saviour, Jesus Christ, he hath power to depose heretical Kings, Princes, States, Commonwealths, and Governments, and they may be safely destroyed. Therefore to the utmost of my power I will defend this doctrine and His Holiness’s right and custom against all usurpers of the heretical or Protestant authority whatever, especially the Lutheran Church of Germany, Holland, Denmark, Sweden and Norway, and the now pretended authority and Churches of England and Scotland, and the branches of same now established in Ireland and on the continent of America and elsewhere and all adherents in regard that they may be usurped and heretical, opposing the sacred Mother Church of Rome. I do now denounce and disown any allegiance as due to any heretical king, prince or State, named Protestant or Liberal, or obedience to any of their laws, magistrates or officers. I do further declare the doctrine of the Churches of England and Scotland of the Calvinists, Huguenots, and others of the name of Protestants or Masons to be damnable, and they themselves to be damned who will not forsake the same. I do further declare that I will help, assist, and advise all or any of His Holiness’s agents, in any place where I should be, in Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Ireland or America, or in any other kingdom or territory I shall come to, and do my utmost to extirpate the heretical Protestant or Masonic doctrines and to destroy all their pretended powers, legal or otherwise. I do further promise and declare that, notwithstanding, I am dispensed with to assume any religion heretical for the propagation of the Mother Church’s interest; to keep secret and private all her agents’ counsels from time to time, as they entrust me, and not to divulge, directly or indirectly, by word, writing or circumstances whatever; but to execute all that should be proposed, given in charge, or discovered unto me by you, my Ghostly Father, or any of this sacred order. I do further promise and declare that I will have no opinion or will of my own or any mental reservation whatever, even as a corpse or cadaver (perinde ac cadaver), but will unhesitatingly obey each and every command that I may receive from my superiors in the militia of the Pope and of Jesus Christ. That I will go to any part of the world whithersoever I may be sent, to the frozen regions north, jungles of India, to the centres of civilisation of Europe, or to the wild haunts of the barbarous savages of America without murmuring or repining, and will be submissive in all things, whatsoever is communicated to me. I do further promise and declare that I will, when opportunity presents, make and wage relentless war, secretly and openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Masons, as I am directed to do, to extirpate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex nor condition, and that will hang, burn, waste, boil, flay, strangle, and bury alive these infamous heretics; rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women, and crush their infants’ heads against the walls in order to annihilate their execrable race. That when the same cannot be done openly I will secretly use the poisonous cup, the strangulation cord, the steel of the poniard, or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honour, rank, dignity or authority of the persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agents of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Father of the Society of Jesus. In confirmation of which I hereby dedicate my life, soul, and all corporal powers, and with the dagger which I now receive I will subscribe my name written in my blood in testimony thereof; and should I prove false, or weaken in my determination, may my brethren and fellow soldiers of the militia of the Pope cut off my hands and feet and my throat from ear to ear, my belly be opened and sulphur burned therein with all the punishment that can be inflicted upon me on earth, and my soul shall be tortured by demons in eternal hell forever. That I will in voting always vote for a Knight of Columbus in preference to a Protestant, especially a Mason, and that I will leave my party so to do; that if two Catholics are on the ticket I will satisfy myself which is the better supporter of Mother Church and vote accordingly. That I will not deal with or employ a Protestant if in my power to deal with or employ a Catholic. That I will place Catholic girls in Protestant families that a weekly report may be made of the inner movements of the heretics. That I will provide myself with arms and ammunition that I may be in readiness when the word is passed, or I am commanded to defend the Church either as an individual or with the militia of the Pope. All of which I,_______________, do swear by the blessed Trinity and blessed sacrament which I am now to receive to perform and on part to keep this my oath. In testimony hereof, I take this most holy and blessed sacrament of the Eucharist and witness the same further with my name written with the point of this dagger dipped in my own blood and seal in the face of this holy sacrament.

(He receives the wafer from the Superior and writes his name with the point of his dagger dipped in his own blood taken from over his heart.)

(Superior speaks:)

You will now rise to your feet and I will instruct you in the Catechism necessary to make yourself known to any member of the Society of Jesus belonging to this rank. In the first place, you, as a Brother Jesuit, will with another mutually make the ordinary sign of the cross as any ordinary Roman Catholic would; then one crosses his wrists, the palms of his hands open, and the other in answer crosses his feet, one above the other; the first points with forefinger of the right hand to the centre of the palm of the left, the other with the forefinger of the left hand points to the centre of the palm of the right; the first then with his right hand makes a circle around his head, touching it; the other then with the forefinger of his left hand touches the left side of his body just below his heart; the first then with his right hand draws it across the throat of the other, and the latter then with a dagger down the stomach and abdomen of the first. The first then says Iustum; and the other answers Necar; the first Reges; the other answers Impious. The first will then present a small piece of paper folded in a peculiar manner, four times, which the other will cut longitudinally and on opening the name Jesu will be found written upon the head and arms of a cross three times. You will then give and receive with him the following questions and answers:

From whither do you come? Answer: The Holy faith.

Whom do you serve? Answer: The Holy Father at Rome, the Pope, and the Roman Catholic Church Universal throughout the world.

Who commands you? Answer: The Successor of St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus or the Soldiers of Jesus Christ.

Who received you? Answer: A venerable man in white hair.

How? Answer: With a naked dagger, I kneeling upon the cross beneath the banners of the Pope and of our sacred order.

Did you take an oath? Answer: I did, to destroy heretics and their governments and rulers, and to spare neither age, nor sex, nor condition; to be as a corpse without any opinion or will of my own, but to implicitly obey my Superiors in all things without hesitation or murmuring.

Will you do that? Answer: I will.

How do you travel? Answer: In the bark of Peter the fisherman.

Whither do you travel? Answer: To the four quarters of the globe.

For what purpose? Answer: To obey the orders of my General and Superiors and execute the will of the Pope and faithfully fulfil the conditions of my oaths.

Go ye, then, into all the world and take possession of all lands in the name of the Pope. He who will not accept him as the Vicar of Jesus and his Vice-Regent on earth, let him be accursed and exterminated.

The Jesuit oath provides a better understanding of the new pope, who was the head of the Jesuit order in Argentina. He was formerly known as  Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, and has taken the name of Francis, after St. Francis of Assisi. The significance of this new name can be directly linked to the pope’s Jesuit oath, because the Franciscans were highly influential in the Great Inquisition of the 13th century, as stated below.

Wikipedia.Com

Inquisitions against non-Catholic movements

The Waldensians were mostly in Germany and North Italy. In contrast with the Cathars and in line with the Church, they believed in only one God, but they did not recognize a special class of priesthood, believing in the priesthood of all believers. They also objected to the veneration (not synonymous with worship) of saints and martyrs, which were part of the Church’s orthodoxy. The complaints of the two main preaching orders of the period, the Dominicans and the Franciscans, against the moral corruption of the Church, to some extent echoed those of the heretical movements, but they were doctrinally conventional, and were enlisted by Pope Innocent III in the fight against heresy. As a result, many Franciscans and Dominicans became inquisitors. For example, Robert le Bougre, the “Hammer of Heretics” (Malleus Haereticorum), was a Dominican friar who became an inquisitor known for his cruelty and violence. Another example was the case of the province of Venice, which was handed to the Franciscan inquisitors, who quickly became notorious for their frauds against the Church, by enriching themselves with confiscated property from the heretics and the selling of absolutions. Because of their corruption, they were eventually forced by the Pope to suspend their activities in 1302.

  What can be expected of the new pope is the carrying out of the social teachings of Rome, such as “social justice“, which is a form of liberation theology that was taught by a nineteenth century Jesuit, and cummanitarianism, which is a merging of socialism and big business with big government. This agenda fits perfectly with Alice Bailey’s world servers idea, as well as Reformed Theologians’ “Incarnational ministry“. All of which are consistent with Vatican II, and promotes the ideals of liberation theology, ecumenism, and humanitarianism, and are rooted in the social gospel’s promise of making a better world. This agenda can be expected of the new pope because it has been consistent with the teachings of the Jesuits for well over a hundred years, and the goal of the agenda is global governance.

Test All Things Pt. 6 – The Founding Fathers of America

founding-fathers

Is America rooted in the gospel of Jesus Christ?

&

Where the founding Fathers of America believers in the gospel, and the God of the Bible?

These questions are important, because the average Christian is taught to think about the founding fathers, and the American revolution, as though both are rotted in Christianity. Many are also taught that Christian political activism, and its war against the dominate liberal culture of America, is their Christian duty in America.

A quote from Thomas Paine, one of the founding fathers, and the author of “Common Sense” and “The Age of Reason” proves that the claim of America being a Christian country, that was founded by Christians, should not be trusted, but further examined, because below is a clear, and bold, rejection of Jesus Christ, and the gospel.

The Age of Reason, page 111 & 112

It is not the existence, or non-existence, of the persons that I trouble myself about; it is the fable of Jesus Christ, as told in the New Testament, and the wild and visionary doctrine raised thereon, against which I contend. The story, taking it as it is told, is blasphemously obscene. It gives an account of a young woman engaged to be married, and while under this engagement she is, to speak plain language, debauched by a ghost, under the thomas paineimpious pretence (Luke, chap. i., ver. 35), that “the Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee.” Notwithstanding which, Joseph afterward marries her, cohabits with her as his wife, and in his turn rivals the ghost. This is putting the story into intelligible language, and when told in this manner, there is not a priest but must be ashamed to own it.*

*Mary, the supposed virgin-mother of Jesus, had several other children, sons and daughters. See Matthew, chap. xiii, verses 55, 56.
Obscenity in matters of faith, however wrapped up, is always a token of fable and imposture; for it is necessary to our serious
belief in God that we do not connect it with stories that run, as this does, into ludicrous interpretations. This story is upon the face of
it, the same kind of story as that of Jupiter and Leda, or Jupiter and Europa, or any of the amorous adventures of Jupiter; and shows, as
is already stated in the former part of the Age of Reason, that the Christian faith is built upon the heathen mythology.

How important is Thomas Paine?

Another founding father, John Adams, stated Paine’s importance in this way:

Without the pen of the author of Common Sense, the sword of Washington would have been raised in vain. [5]

In his book, “The age of Reason”, Paine openly rejected the gospel of Jesus Christ, and affirmed Deism as the true religion. Thomas Jefferson, and John Adams, were also Deists.

The founding fathers of America established the American Constitution, which many American Christians have been deceived by. The deception is the belief that God wants Christians, and the common citizens, to revolt against tyrants, such as the king of England, and anyone who tries to change the constitution.

Does God want the common citizens to rebel against those in authority?

Exodus 22

28    “You shall not revile God, nor curse a ruler of your people.

Does Christ want his followers to rebel against their oppressors.

Luke 20

21    Then they asked Him, saying, “Teacher, we know that You say and teach rightly, and You do not show personal favoritism, but teach the way of God in truth:
22    Is it lawful for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?”
23    But He perceived their craftiness, and said to them, “Why do you test Me?
24    Show Me a denarius. Whose image and inscription does it have?” They answered and said, “Caesar’s.”
25    And He said to them, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”

Romans 13

1    Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.
2    Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.
3    For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same.
4    For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.
5    Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake.
6    For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing.
7    Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.

1Peter 4

11    Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul,
12    having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation.
13    Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, whether to the king as supreme,
14    or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good.
15    For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men —
16    as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as bondservants of God.
17    Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.
18    Servants, be submissive to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the harsh.
19    For this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully.
20    For what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God.
21    For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps:
22    ” Who committed no sin, Nor was deceit found in His mouth”;
23    who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously;
24    who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness — by whose stripes you were healed.
25    For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

1Timothy 6

1    Let as many bondservants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and His doctrine may not be blasphemed.
2    And those who have believing masters, let them not despise them because they are brethren, but rather serve them because those who are benefited are believers and beloved. Teach and exhort these things.

Indeed, the founding fathers of America has led many Christians astray during the time of the revolution. However, they have been dead for almost two hundred years. Therefore, Christians are not being led astray by the founding fathers today. Instead, those who are still promoting the idea that America is a Christian nation, that was founded by Christians, are the real problem in the church. They must be corrected, because they are misleading, and confusing Christians throughout the church in America. Also, some, such as David Barton, Peter Lilback, and Kirk Cameron, have dedicated themselves to deceiving Christ’s church in America into following a false Christianity, which is a nationalist cult, which claims to be Christianity, but is really just a, dominionist, social gospel. According to Scripture, these kind of people must be marked, and avoided.

Romans 16

17    Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.
18    For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple.
19    For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf; but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil.

The Catholic Calvinists Pt. 2 – John Piper

piperlarge

The Reformed Calvinist teacher, and internationally known author, and speaker, John Piper, has shown himself to have Roman Catholic tendencies. Piper is a former student of Fuller Theological Seminary, which has trained a number of emerging church leaders, such as Rick Warren, Tony Jones, and Rob Bell. The seminaries’ faculty has consisted of heretical teachers, such as it’s former president, C. Peter Wagner, of the New Apostolic Reformation John Wimber, of the Vineyard Movement, and the universalist, Thomas Talbott. John Piper has also attended the University of Munich, which was known for being under the control of the Jesuit order, during the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries, because it is one of their many tools during the Counter Reformation. The University of Munich is also the same college that the former pope, Benedict XVI, attended.

John Piper has shown his partiality toward Roman Catholic heretics, such as the mystic Bernard of Clairvaux, who was a major contributor to building the virgin Mary cult of Roman Catholicism, by listing Clairaux as a lover of God, and one of the most God-besotted people in the world. See Piper’s quote below:

Desiring God

Or take hymns! How unabashedly hedonistic they are! Hymns are the voices of the church’s lovers, and lovers are the least duty-oriented and most God-besotted people in the world.

Jesus, Thou joy of loving hearts

Thou fount of life, Thou light of men

From the best bliss that earth imparts

We turn unfilled to Thee again.

Bernard of Clairvaux

The quote above is taken from Piper’s book on “Christian Hedonism”, which is a perversion of both God, and the gospel. One of the origins for Piper’s deceptive philosophy of hedonism is, according to John Piper, the Roman Catholic heretic, Blaise Pascal.

John Piper & Christian Hedonism

“During my first quarter in seminary, I was introduced to the argument for Christian Hedonism and one of its great exponents, Blaise Pascal. He wrote: ‘All men seek happiness. This is without exception. Whatever different means they employ, they all tend to this end. … The will never takes the least step but to this object. This is the motive of every action of every man, even of those who hand themselves.’ This statement so fit with my own deep longings, and all that I had ever seen in others, that I accepted it and have never found any reason to doubt it. … Jonathan Edwards tied it [Pascal’s statement] to the Word of Christ: ‘Jesus knew that all mankind were in the pursuit of happiness. He has directed them in the true way to it, and He tells them what they must become in order to be blessed and happy’” (Desiring God, location 198, 212, 3761).

The Roman Catholic Blaise Pascal was a brilliant mathematician but he was also a theological heretic and a deeply confused man, spiritually. Though he attacked some aspects of Romanism, he accepted the papacy, the mass, the saints, Mariolatry, and veneration of relics. He was deeply influenced by the blind mysticism of Jansenism and he spent a lot of time in the convent where his sister was a nun and where Catholic mysticism was practiced.

In late 2011, Piper has also taught a form of Roman Catholic Mysticism, known as Lectico Devina Lite on his website, and removed it after a backlash of controversy.

DesiringGod.Org

Update: Formerly I listed Lectio Divina as a third system for prayer. I’ve since removed it for the confusion it has caused. We do not endorse contemplative spirituality. The main point I’d like to recommend is using the text of Scripture as an organizer for our prayers — prayers that are exegetically faithful and gospel rich. I’m sorry for introducing the category.

The former pope Benedict is also in favor of practicing Lectico Devina as stated below:

Zenit.Org

“If this practice is promoted with efficacy, I am convinced that it will produce a new spiritual springtime in the Church,” stated the Holy Father.Pope-620x395

To promote “lectio divina,” Benedict XVI suggested “new methods, attentively pondered, adapted to the times.”

“One must never forget that the Word of God is a lamp for our steps and a light on our path,” he said.

Piper has also practiced Lectico Devina with Beth Moore, at the Passion 2012 conference.

John Piper also talks as though he believes that Roman Catholicism is part of Christ’s church, while also teaching that the pope undermines the faith of his followers. He does this by calling the pope one of the teachers of the church.

DesiringGod.Org

Nevertheless, God’s mercy is not a warrant to neglect or deny precious truths, especially those that are at the heart of how we get right with God. And the teachers of the church (notably the Pope) will be held more responsible than others for teaching what is fully biblical.

Thus, any church whose teaching rejects the imputation of the righteousness of Christ as an essential ground for our justification would be a church whose error is so close to the heart of the gospel as to be involved in undermining the faith of its members.

Piper has also made a public prayer on Twitter for the next pope, as though God might use the office of this age old enemy of Christ, the gospel, and the church.

O Lord of truth and mercy, put in place a Pope most willing to reform the Catholic Church in accord with your most holy word.

What should believers do about people like John Piper, who causes divisions, and offenses concerning the doctrine of Christ, and the gospel?

They must remember that a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.

Matthew 7

15    “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
16    You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?
17    Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.
18    A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.
19    Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
20    Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

They must mark, and avoid them.

Romans 16

17    Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.
18    For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple.
19    For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf; but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil.

They must let these kind of people be accursed.

Galatians 1

6    I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel,
7    which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ.
8    But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.
9    As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.

And they must not take delight in them, nor promote them.

2John 1

8    Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward
.9    Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son.
10    If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him;
11    for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds.

Matthew 7

21    “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
22    Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’
23    And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
