“In India, several powerful regional politicians have appealed to the Indian prime minister to press Afghan leaders to secure the priest’s release.”
Did these same powerful regional politicians involve themselves in the gang rape and murders of the CHILDREN in India? The girls gang raped … how about the one where the elders of the village ordered the rape and murder to send a message? These are what? Just children? Just girls? Do these girls really matter to the powerful regional politicians in India? But the Jesuit priest—OH MY! How dare anyone abduct a Jesuit priest! Call in the most powerful politicians!!! While they are at it, maybe they can relieve the orphans from the horrors of this war. Going to these lands and making a few weak statements about peace, while representing a disease of discrimination is like spitting into the wind. Watch, you will see …
Someone sent this to me yesterday: http://news.yahoo.com/800-babies-buried-septic-tank-irish-home-unmarried-143858913.html
Who is responsible for this show of partiality? Who will help the children? How have the priests and bishops and cardinals and arch-whatevers helped in the showering of PARTIALITY?
PARTIALITY IS A SIN is what it says in James 2. Luke 6 … DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU …
Do you think the priests, bishops, cardinals, popes etc … ever think about how women and girls are treated? Why would they? Mary is a Goddess according to their teaching, and was never a girl, or a woman … not a real flesh and blood human … and women are not permitted the position of priest or bishop because they are not—-what? Gods? To these, Mary floated up into a Spiritual Realm …. her flesh—wait, what happened to her flesh? Is it up in a Roman Catholic-Orthodox Realm along with the male organ of Jesus—you know, that thingy that makes him a him and her unworthy, except Mary, of course, for she is Goddess … who was never given choice.
What are you? Inhuman? Gods? Or are you Demons? I am asking a very important question here. WHAT ARE YOU IN YOUR PARTIALITY—your favoritism? What are you in your robes and titles and favoritism? I will tell you WHAT you are … you are men. The priest, bishop, cardinal, pope is no more or less than the team that collects my trash on Wednesdays. No more than the dog groomer, or the politician, or the school nurse. Step out of your vocational garb and the sweat on your body smells no differently than the sweat of anyone else working on this planet. We have seen inside your daily “habits” and know the tricks and turns. Man made you gods on earth but God will make you …
The enemy loves dissemination.
I suspect the RCC is concerned about what happened to the Jesuit priest in Homs … Frans. He was yanked from his residence and shot in the head—twice. The RC Institution had no sooner met with the president of the US and … Religious Institutions need to stay out of world affairs, you know—politics, but …
Actually, I do know that there are a few priests who are true in God Worth. A few. Many are called; but few are chosen, you see … I was thinking about the wafer and the chalice. How is it possible that a man can control how and what this serves? Only GOD can control Spirit. Why? Because GOD IS SPIRIT.
God is Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John 4.24
So, how can man control God? You see how man has risen himself to esteemed levels in his royal coach? NO ONE CAN CONTROL THE OUTCOME OF THE SPIRIT EXCEPT THE SPIRIT. Does anyone honestly believe any man has the ability to manufacture Spirit through ritual, and feed it to others? Guess what? The enemy knows the ritual better than the ritualists, and guess what, he knows right where to be. Ahhh … he says … predictable, so easy … just the way we like it. These people give me no trouble at all. They are putty in my hands—the whole lot of them.
9 Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left.
10 And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar.
11 Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other.
Lot lifted up his eyes and journeyed east.
Priest, are you offended by my words? Man must see himself through God’s eyes and not through the eyes of man. In this, the priest becomes …
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. 17 For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last,[a] just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”[b]
God’s Wrath Against Sinful Humanity
18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. Roman 1 16-25
Man made a devil out of himself. The enemy knew just where to go. Sexual abuse in religious ordinations? Hundreds of thousands across the globe for centuries … Is anyone surprised? Angels see in patterns. The enemy knows what cab he can catch a free ride, because it is owned by … Unless you are moving-ever-flowing-constantly growing … moving … what happens? And man said, come to me and I will give you … ?
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11.28
Those reading this essay and other essays can see that I am not impressed by the titles and the religious garb, or name brands and heads of … A dad with three children working two jobs to pay for his wife’s cervical cancer has more to teach about God than a man dressed in a robe doing the sign of the cross. By the way, there is an amazing new study out on treatment for cervical cancer. Priest, have you heard about it yet?
Article from Religious News site:
(RNS) Chris Naples says something snapped inside him that January day.
The New Jersey resident sat in the gallery of the Delaware Supreme Court earlier this year watching as a lawyer for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Trenton N.J., told the justices that the Rev. Terence McAlinden was not “on duty” — or serving in his capacity as a priest — when he allegedly molested Naples on trips to Delaware in the 1980s.
McAlinden, who once headed the diocese’s youth group, had introduced himself to Naples at a church-sponsored leadership retreat in Keyport, N.J.
Yet McAlinden wasn’t officially a priest when he took a teenage Naples on trips to Delaware, the lawyer argued.
“How do we determine when a priest is and is not on duty?” one of the justices asked, according to a video of the session on the court’s website.
“Well,” replied the diocese lawyer, “you can determine a priest is not on duty when he is molesting a child, for example. … A priest abusing a child is absolutely contrary to the pursuit of his master’s business, to the work of a diocese.”
The statement — one prong of the diocese’s argument that it should not be held responsible for McAlinden’s alleged assaults — left Naples reeling.
“Any hope I had that the church was concerned about me as a victim or about the conduct of its priests was totally gone,” Naples, now 42, said in a recent interview. “They were washing their hands of it. I was shattered. I just couldn’t believe that was one of their arguments.”
Religious vocation … you see? Not Christ on earth. Not God. Not Prophet on Truth like some religious view their pastors and popes and presidents. Very convenient, however, for those who think they can turn a switch and poof—Jesus Christ miracle flesh and blood in the priest’s hands: just put on the robe, do the sign of the cross and by God, we have a miracle! Where are all those miracles in the world today? Those who have been feeding on the miracles fed to them by the priests for centuries? What happened? Didn’t the waving of hands and fancy garb do the trick? Didn’t you read the WORD OF GOD, priest? Partiality is a sin. You are not their father, are you? If you were, you would be doing as the man with three children whose wife has cervical cancer. Get with the program and stop waving your hands like a traffic cop. Tell your bishops to take a hike (they could use the exercise) and get your house in order! Your pope is not your prophet on Truth and he cannot save an institution that is being dismantled that the world might see.
Hey pope! Can you hear this: PARTIALITY IS A SIN! Why didn’t you tell this to “your brother” … How clever of you and your think tank, but the world will begin to see the instability of the house built in sand. ROMAN Catholic Church as GOD’S CHURCH on earth? Plank by plank by plank … (note: the pope did issue a statement that he is an institution, and so, by saying ‘pope,’ I address the institution).
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!’
Have I made my point? No, not yet. The following is from Nikitas Stithatos, Texts 37 On Practice of the Virtues, The Philokalia
“A passion is not the same thing as a sinful act: they are quite distinct. A passion operates in the soul, a sinful act involves the body. For example, love of pleasure, avarice and love of praise are three particularly noxious passions of the soul; but unchastity, greed and wrong-doing are sinful acts of the flesh. Lust, anger and arrogance are passions of the soul produced when the soul’s power’s operate in a way that is contrary to nature. Adultery, murder, theft, drunkennous and whatever else is done through the body, are sinful and noxious actions of the flesh.”
First, as I have shared in SPIR, I tip my hat to those who engaged in this type of work—exploring the Realm of the INNER Place of Light, and not spending their flesh and blood days captured in the worldly avarice of spellbinding others for control and capitulation. But I have also shared that spending a lifetime in one spot does not award the necessary growth needed for the MOVE into Spiritual Awareness which transforms the believer to engage for Spirit Verse, ID and Community of Spirit. If you recall, Jesus says: TAKE UP YOUR MAT AND WALK.
That said, PASSION DOES NOT OPERATE IN THE SOUL as Nikitas states. Passion is a derivative of existential healing. If the understanding is NOT a “wait for purgatory to restore order”, but that this place on earth—within WORK “designed and executed by GOD, for God, that the believer might do on earth what is due in heaven” (recall Lord says: In my Father’s house are many rooms, and I GO to prepare a place …)—is ‘what is’ for the believer enduring in the element necessary for RENEWAL, then the soul is of a resident in the coming Light. The Element is the foundation NOT built in sand. It IS the rock. What this is saying is the Soul is not enslaved, captured, lost (or off) … to ITSELF, which is the ROOM or space DESIGNED BY GOD, and is ever flowing; it is ON to ITSELF. A malfunctioning institution of whatever name, title, denomination that is fixed or attached to itself rather than God, or drawing attention to itself rather than God … is the cell of iniquity, born of ignorance and immaturity, stemming from ritual or misalignment of purpose (being misused by others/mystics are often CAUGHT in this).
The soul has not yet been defined according to God’s Will. Until one comes into the Spirit, the soul is undetermined. One searching in Understanding that he might gain Spiritual Knowledge must remove the layers that have him bridled to secularism or institution or ritual or man-instituted law and decree. He must strip for the release, but he cannot enter the Kingdom naked (see the Prodigal dressed by the SERVANTS before the feast … but man must ask: who are these that dress the son? and he must ask: who beats up the servants and who kills the son sent to inspect the vineyard? Matthew 21.33-45) Spiritual Knowledge is Understanding IN GOD, which requires movement—requires Spirit, and Spirit is ever moving.
Spiritual Knowledge-Masculine: Understanding (encompassing Spirit Art/Vision, etc)-Feminine+ENDURANCE=Soul. Our Trinitarian Verse.
Passion is within Spiritual Clarity. Desire is what operates the mind, but until the mind can IDENTITY WITHIN …. which is THE HEART ASCENDING TO “ITSELF” … Mind … it is of a nonpartisan base. This means it is universal in its pretenses—accepting and or inviting in all things, including those ‘created things’ which contaminate the STARTER for the bread, which alienates itself from THE HOST, which ABIDETH IN THEE. So, you see, priest, you are not host until you are abiding in THEE, and you are not abiding in THEE if you have any way in you that is obtuse, and or unredeeming … without Penance. In other words, you have not seen the Light, or you are not seeing. This is why billions within institution are unknown, and did not know their priests/bishops/popes were molesting children, along with other illicit acts. These, as well as the priests, are MARRIED to Pope/Patriarch: Institution, or whatever this constitutes and demands of you.
I know an Orthodox priest who confesses his sins to a bishop. He is onto something elite, but using an indiscriminate vessel for this. The bishop admitted he did not confess his sins. Why? Is he above reproach?
A long while ago I had a dream where I stood in a room, and it was as if I was in a room being made ready … a wind blew in and all the dead leaves were swept from the space. I watched them glide across the floor and out of the room. Dry leaves are dead leaves and are symbolic of what is used is no longer of vitality but of composting in the growth of the NEW. New Vision. Everyone has some type of spirit vision, but few know what and how.
1 JOHN 1. 5-10 …5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all[a] sin.
8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.
And finally …
I guess pope Fran has not read Tobit, nor has he seen what needs to be seen on the value of the dog. How can he call himself Francis if he has not seen the WORTH of the animal? Peter shared its solemn Day … Genesis rose to lift the Light … Every day the Lord gives us VISION through the use of the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees … and the animals. Maybe he is reading the Christ message upside down.
Peace and Love.
