Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

        I’ve been increasingly alarmed myself, and I’m not even Catholic.

        I remember vividly, watching his first address to the crowds outside the Vatican as Pope.
        He said the words, “Let us pray”, and there was instant silence!
        Hundreds of people, and quiet, but for one voice.
        All that faith, I fear it is being wasted.

    Rebellion Against Pauline Authority

    One of the chief reasons why so many sincere religious people are left in doubt and uncertainty as to salvation is because the organized Church has rebelled against a distinct and important revelation from God to us who live in this present age. This revelation is found in the inspired words of Paul, in Rom. 11:13:

    “For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles. I magnify mine office.”

    Many minimize that which the Word of God magnifies here. They insist upon following Peter rather than Paul, failing to see that Peter’s authority concerned the now-rejected kingdom of Christ on earth over Israel and the nations. Our Lord had said to His twelve apostles:

    “Verily I say unto you, that ye which have followed Me, in the regeneration, when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of His glory, YE ALSO SHALL SIT UPON TWELVE THRONES, JUDGING THE TWELVE TRIBES OF ISRAEL” (Matt. 19:28).

    Surely there are no twelve tribes in the Church today, nor was any provision, specific or implied, made by our Lord for “apostolic succession.” This dogma is built upon the unscriptural assumption that the Church today is the kingdom which Christ established when on earth, and that our ministry today is but a perpetuation of that which the twelve began.

    The fact is that the ministry of the twelve was halted by the rejection of the King and His kingdom and that the apostles themselves finally agreed to turn their proposed Gentile ministry over to Paul, that other apostle, to whom had been committed “the gospel of the grace of God” (Read carefully, Gal. 2:2-9 and Acts 20:24).

    If only the confused religious masses could see that when Israel joined the Gentiles in rebellion against God, when the world’s sin had risen to its height and all was ready for judgment, God revealed “the exceeding riches of His grace” by saving Saul, the chief of sinners, and sending him forth as both the herald and the living example of His grace! Thus he writes:

    “Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound, BUT WHERE SIN ABOUNDED, GRACE DID MUCH MORE ABOUND: “THAT AS SIN HATH REIGNED UNTO DEATH, EVEN SO MIGHT GRACE REIGN, through righteousness, unto eternal life, by Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom. 5:20,21).

    By Pastor Cornelius R. Stam

    Romans 11:13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:

    Matthew 19:28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

    Galatians 2:2 And I went up by revelation, and communicated unto them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to them which were of reputation, lest by any means I should run, or had run, in vain.
    3 But neither Titus, who was with me, being a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised:
    4 And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:
    5 To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.

    6 But of these who seemed to be somewhat, (whatsoever they were, it maketh no matter to me: God accepteth no man’s person:) for they who seemed to be somewhat in conference added nothing to me:
    7 But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter;
    8 (For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:)
    9 And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.

    Acts 20:24 But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

    Romans 5:20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
    21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

      “Read carefully, Gal. 2:2-9 and Acts 20:24”

      About a month ago, the post here offered Stam’s perspective on those verses:

      https://www.bereanbiblesociety.org/why-god-waits/

      “To Paul particularly was committed “the gospel of the grace of God” which we proclaim today (Acts 20:24). Peter recognized this (Gal. 2:2,7,9)”

      Acts 2 describing events at Pentecost and Acts 10 describing show that the Holy Spirit committing the gospel of the grace of God to Peter as well; even Galatians 2:7-9 appears more to bear out a division of mission fields than Peter waiting on Paul to have a clue about the dispensation of the grace of God (also cf. Acts 15, in which Peter as in Acts 10 describes the relation of receiving gospel, salvation “by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ”, and the Holy Spirit for both Jew and Gentile).

      Acts 10:44-47 “Of Peter still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those hearing the word. And the believers from the circumcision, as many as had come with Peter, were amazed that the gift of the Holy Spirit has been poured out even upon the Gentiles. For they were hearing them speaking in tongues and magnifying God. Then Peter answered, “Is anyone able to withhold the water to baptize these who have received the Holy Spirit, just as we also have?””

      Acts 15:7-11 “And much discussion having taken place, Peter having risen up, said to them, “Men, brothers, you know that from the early days God chose among you for the Gentiles to hear by my mouth the word of the gospel, and to believe. And the heart-knowing God bore witness to them, having given them the Holy Spirit, as also to us. And He made no distinction between both us and them, having purified their hearts by the faith. Now therefore, why are you testing God, to put upon the neck of the disciples a yoke that neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear? But we believe ourselves to be saved by the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same manner as they also are.””

      Keeping all this in mind, reading about a supposed ‘Rebellion Against Pauline Authority’ by “the organized Church” that means that so many sincere religious people are left in doubt and uncertainty as to salvation” doesn’t seem to bear out.

      Citing Romans 11:13, Stam contends that “the confused religious masses” as they’re called at one point “insist upon following Peter rather than Paul”.

      Note that Stam leaves off the second half of the sentence of his thesis verse for “Pauline authority”. Let’s put it back and see it if makes a difference: Romans 11:13-14: “13Now I am speaking to you the Gentiles. Therefore indeed inasmuch as I am apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, 14if at all I shall provoke to jealousy my own flesh, and shall save some of them.”

      We already know about his being sent to preach the gospel of grace that God chose the Gentiles to hear the first from Peter and having made no distinction between them and the believing Jews (Acts 10:44-47, Acts 15:7-11). What we see here is an explanation from Paul to the Gentiles of why he would magnify or glorify his ministry (Gr. doxazō, to ascribe weight by recognizing real substance): to get Jews who were stumbling in their pursuit of righteousness (Romans 9:30-10:3) to sense the aroma of Christ (cf. 2 Cor. 2:15) and be led to Him and be saved.

      Romans 9-12 and the whole chapter contain many verses about salvation of both the Jews and the Gentiles the same way (citing Abraham and Moses time and again): by grace through faith as a gift from God (cf. Eph. 2:8-10). The apparent insistence on special, exclusive authority related to the gospel of grace that isolates and elevates Paul over and over — along with what seem like strawman arguments that there’s some grand battle waging where Peter is being chosen over Paul on salvation matters — seems to me to point to any confusion coming primarily from Stam et al. rather than the organized church.

        Okay millwright…..ya’ got me on that one……from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titanic_Thompson (one of the few times I use wikipedia, for stuff like this

        Alvin Clarence Thomas (November 30, 1893 – May 19, 1974) was an American gambler, golfer and hustler better known as Titanic Thompson

        In his own story, published in Sports Illustrated in 1972,[2] Alvin Thomas, listed as a co-author, said:

        In the spring of 1912 I went to Joplin, Missouri, just about the time the Titanic liner hit an iceberg and sank with more than 1,500 people on board. I was in a pool room there and beat a fellow named Snow Clark out of $500. To give him a chance to get even, I bet $200 I could jump across his pool table without touching it. If you think that’s easy, try it. But I could jump farther than a herd of bullfrogs in those days. I put down an old mattress on the other side of the table. Then I took a run and dived headfirst across the pool table. While I was counting my money, somebody asked Clark what my name was “It must be Titanic,” said Clark. “He sinks everybody.” so I was Titanic from then on.

    My father’s bird dog was named Prince. He’d raised him from a puppy and Prince loved bird hunting every bit as much as my Dad did. He’d been in my life as long as I could remember which, at age 4 or 5 wasn’t that long . . . Still, he was a constant, a backyard playmate who I knew loved me. Prince even let me eat from his good dish on occasion and once, when it was chilly, he let me climb into his doghouse where he kept me warm and I went to sleep. I woke up only after hearing my Mom frantically calling my name. She thought I was surely lost when I was just nappin’ with my buddy Prince. One day Prince went away. I didn’t quite understand why, although I heard my Dad say Prince had been killing a neighbor’s chickens. That, of course, broke country folks rules so my Dad was expected to either kill Prince or find him another home. He did the latter and so suddenly my playmate and doghouse companion wasn’t with us any longer. One day my Dad took me for a ride into the country. We drove for what seemed like a long time until we came to a farm. There in a pen was Prince, as excited as ever to see us. I thought he’d come back home with us but we just petted Prince for awhile and then we left. Driving back home, my Dad suddenly pulled off the road. He reached over and hugged me real tight. I was too young to full understand, but I knew something was wrong with my Dad. It was the first time I ever saw my father cry.

As I’ve been on my now approaching 15yrs of serious researching….I’ve watched, say from back in the ’60’s – forward…..the definitions becoming more far-reaching and harsher, as far as “defining societal groups.” (it’s been intentional IMO) It’s like each group has to out-do their previous generation……and then, at this point, we have some percentage of each group radicalizing…which actually in the end, hurts THEIR cause. (i.e. the Baptist-mafia, the “womyn’s” movement, the snowflake-whiners, both political parties, the gay-radicals,BLM…..etc)

      Lots of younger ones have been saying this for a while: “We live in satanic clown world.” I agree with that point of view…

      Does it please satan when people – especially people who claim to be Christian – advocate for evil?

      Is aiding/abetting the normalization of evil the same as ‘advocating for’ evil?

      I think it is…it’s ‘soft advocacy.’ The ‘soft advocates’ aren’t in the streets marching in parades, but they’re nonetheless advocating FOR the normalization of homosexuality.

      I’m reminded of Matthew Chapter 7, I think it is…..you know, where Jesus said to us:

      “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. 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?’

      AND THEN I WILL DECLARE TO THEM, ‘I NEVER KNEW YOU; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.'”

      and, of course, also from Matthew 7 where Jesus said to us:

      “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”

      When you put the kind of ‘soft advocacy’ of evil that we see ALL AROUND US today into the mix, it’s much easier to see how broad the way and how wide the gate, isn’t it…

      That fat sex therapist, at first glance, looked like a dead ringer for comedian Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias, but I recently read that he lost 400 pounds, and Fluffy always wears men’s threads!

    God’s Faithfulness
    APRIL 25, 2019

    1 Thessalonians 5:23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.

    Ever since the heavenly Father created time, everything has been in flux—everything, that is, except God Himself. The environment changes with the seasons, and in a similar way, our life also goes through seasons. Some are filled with joy, while others are characterized by difficulty. But the Lord is faithful, and we can always take comfort in knowing this.

    Faithfulness is one of God’s unchanging attributes. It means that He always does exactly what He says He will do and acts in accordance with His nature. He can never deny Himself, so when He promises to “sanctify you entirely” (1 Thessalonians 5:23) you can count on Him to make you more like Christ—even using the painful seasons of life to do so.

    God’s unchanging nature and faithfulness are the foundation of our hope. Because He won’t change His mind about our salvation, we have the assurance of eternal security. Since He is the sovereign Ruler of the universe, we never have to fear that our world is out of His control. His plans were formed long ago with perfect faithfulness (Isa. 25:1) O LORD, You are my God; I will exalt You, I will give thanks to Your name; For You have worked wonders, Plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness.,) and no one can frustrate them or turn back His hand (Isa. 14:27 For the LORD of hosts has planned, and who can frustrate it? And as for His stretched-out hand, who can turn it back?”)

    Because God is faithful, we can have peace of mind in any circumstance—even in the face of death. Although we will change with time and the seasons of life will come and go, our faithful God is always the same. Since we belong to Him through Christ, He will never forget, neglect, or abandon us. He has promised to preserve us “complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thessalonians 5:23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.) and He will do it.

    ‘Get woke, go broke’: Vegan cafe that boasted about charging male customers an 18% ‘man tax’ and seating women first is now closing down 🎯
    24 April 2019

    A vegan cafe that charged male customers an 18 per cent ‘man tax’ to highlight the gender wage gap is closing down.

    Handsome Her, in Melbourne’s trendy Brunswick, made headlines in 2017 when it announced it would tackle gender inequalities by charging men more and seating women first.

    But the cafe, run by green activist Alex O’Brien, announced it would shut up shop on April 28, after just two years of trading.

    It was not immediately clear why the cafe, billed as a safe space for women and lesbians, is closing, but it has faced widespread backlash for it’s perceived reverse sexism. […]

      That would be my guess, Andy. Remember in England they put a young kid who was arrested for putting bacon on a mosque doorknob into a cell with a bunch of muslims and they killed the poor kid.

      It’s just another of the satanic state’s way of punishing its enemies. Problem is, once you know you’ll be murdered – by the state via their thugs – for MINOR things, some folks will decide to do MAJOR things instead and go down in flames. Think NZ….
