U.S. and Its ‘Enemies’ Getting Ready For World War Three––Now? Pt. 4

March 30, 2013

As we sit down to enjoy Easter dinner this holiday season, let’s keep in mind that American troops in at least two diverse parts of the world are on alert for mad men who daily threaten to bomb us, our bases and our allies out of existence.  So don’t forget to pray that our nation, and that those guarding us remain safe!

While the U.S. and South Korea are accustomed to North Korea’s bellicose reaction to the allies’ annual military exercises, this time it is different. With its three recent nuclear tests, North Korea (N.K.) has proven it is in the big leagues.

        As if to ‘one-up’ N.K. loud blusters, yesterday the U. S. flew two B-2 stealth nuclear bombers over Korea.  Shin Young-Keun/Yonhap from Associated Press quotes the American command in Seoul:  The two B-2 Spirit bombers showed the United States’ ability to “provide extended deterrence to our allies in the Asia-Pacific region” and to “conduct long-range, precision strikes quickly and at will.”

At the Pentagon news conference yesterday, Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that the B-2 mission was intended to serve as a deterrent to North Korea, and to reassure South Korea and Japan.

While that may have been the general’s intentions, those B-2 fly-overs infuriated N.K.’s President, Kim Jong-un even more. Today, according to Choe Sang-Hun of The New York Times, Jong-un ordered his missile units on alert to strike the United States and South Korea at a moment’s notice.

This increasingly tense situation now worries both China and Russia.  China immediately called for restraint, and Russian foreign minister, Sergey V. Lavrov said that the situation can “get out of control––it will descent into a vicious cycle.”

Meanwhile, not to be left out of these verbal threat wars, Iran’s spiritual leader and most powerful authority, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said he would destroy Israeli cities of Tel Aviv and Haifa, if Israel attacked Iran.  According to the Jerusalem Post, the Ayatollah bellowed in a broadcast on Iranian state television:

“At times the officials of the Zionist regime (Israel) threaten to launch a military invasion but they themselves know that if they make the slightest mistake the Islamic Republic will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground.”

Meanwhile, over in Europe, one citizen of Cyprus, disgusted over the way European Union banks have swiped huge percentages of savings accounts there said:  “This is how World War One started!”  And then there’s Syria’s civil war!

So have a Happy Easter.  But don’t forget to pray that the Prince of Peace will keep the lid on earth’s conflicts until His Father sends Him back to get His children.  As Bible inspired writing says, that is what the Resurrection is all about:  “ . . . the Prince of Life, Whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses (Acts 3: 15).”

Other Signs: U.S. and Its ‘Enemies’ Getting Ready For WW3 Pt. 3

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 21:23 PM
March 26, 2013

History proves that one seemingly small incident can start a World War.  In WW1, it was the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, and his wife.  As the History Channel writes:  “Taking place against a backdrop of escalating tensions in the Balkans, the assassination set off a chain of events that would lead to the start of World War I barely one month later.

“To many people, the Great War––as it was known at the time––seemed to come out of the blue, as the European continent was enjoying a long stretch of unparalleled peace and prosperity. In fact, the seeds of the devastating conflict had been planted long before Princip fired those fatal bullets.”

The world now witnesses similar possibilities.  Just as The Fiscal Times in their article,  “Will the U.S. Spend $100 Billion to Stop a Madman?,” labels North Korean President, Kim John Un, as insane, it could also have been said of Princip.  Yet that man’s insanity led to millions deaths in World War One!

In his latest verbal attacks, Kim John Un offers a more reachable target: that he will bomb U.S. bases in South Korea, other parts of Asia, Hawaii, Guam, etc. Yet, South Korean intelligence sees no armament activity in the North.

But even the U.S. military admits it has not accurately forecasted armament capabilities of China and North Korea:  “ . . . last week, a four-star general and an independent panel alleged the U.S. was less than prescient in predicting the speed of military developments in Asia. It’s not a new concern;

“Defense Secretary Robert Gates notably said in 2011 that the U.S. “underestimated” how fast China would rollout a “stealth” fighter jet, and the chief of naval intelligence at the time said China’s anti-ship missile systems were appearing faster than predicted.”

Thus, according to Kevin Bacon at in ‘North Korea targets U.S. bases; U.S. intel botching Asia? . . .:  Northern Command’s Gen. Chuck Jacoby insists:  “There have been several attempts with TD-2 [North Korea’s Taepodong-2 missile] to put a space vehicle into orbit, The intelligence community was mixed on whether they would be successful.

“And I think that we have to consider that successful and we have to consider it a demonstration of their ability to pursue ICBM technology as reflected in the rollout of the long-range road-mobile missile. And so, from the NORTHCOM perspective now, what that means is we honor that threat.”

Thus, some parts of America’s military interpret the threats of ‘insane’ North Korean leader as both serious and capable. The problem is time. One flip of the switch can unload a nuclear missile.  And spiritual powers on both sides of good and evil battle for control of those switches around the world.

This is why cultural studies war history argues that prayer is urgently important: “ . . . the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5: 16).”  Only Almighty God can protect this earth from that switch.

U.S. and Its ‘Enemies’ Getting Ready For World War Three––Now? Pt. 2

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 10:14 AM
March 25, 2013

The U.S response to North Korea’s rants gives China fear that our nation is circling that giant land instead of the puny half of Korea. ‘Aggrieved’ Chinese leaders insist that America work to solve nuclear proliferation through diplomacy.

But as the American Forces Press Service (AFPS) responds in ‘In Japan, Carter and Eto Discuss Common Issues,’ those are lofty-sounding platitudes but last month North Korea conducted its third nuclear test.

“And last April, “North Korea displayed what looked to be a mobile intercontinental ballistic missile and in December launched a Taepodong-2 missile that put a satellite into orbit. Such exploits demonstrate North Korean progress in developing long-range missile technology.”  Such weapons could reach California!

To answer North Korea’s aggression, writes in ‘US Missile Plans Against North Korea Target China:’  “ . . . the U.S. is pivoting concentration of its imperial agenda to the Asia Pacific region, [and] the U.S. has now announced it will strengthen its missile systems in Alaska, increasing its capacity significantly by near 50 percent . . .”

While China joined the United Nations in censoring N. K., its spokesmen avow China is N.K.‘s closest ally.  What did they think the U.S. would do. Reuters says in ‘China Criticizes U.S. Anti-Missile North Korea Plan,’ that “China has expressed unease at previous U.S. plans for missile defense systems, as well as sales of such systems to Taiwan and Japan, viewing it as part of an attempt to ‘encircle’ and contain China despite U.S. efforts to ease Chinese fears.

“China has responded by developing an anti-missile system of its own, announcing the latest successful test in January.”  Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei claims:

“Actions such as strengthening anti-missile (defenses) will intensify antagonism and will not be beneficial to finding a solution for the problem.  China hopes the relevant country will proceed on the basis of peace and stability, adopt a responsible attitude and act prudently.”

The LORD Jesus says that evidence His coming includes, “ . . . ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars (Matthew 24: 6).”  But is what we are watching now just a rumor, or is the U.S. getting ready for nuclear war against what list of enemies and semi-enemies: North Korea, Iran, Iraq, China, Syria, Russia, etc.?

And where do our ‘sometime’ allies––i.e. Germany and the rest of the nations in the European Union, South Korea, Japan, India, Taiwan, Turkey––stand? Talk abounds that Iran is building a strategic war-ready relationship with Venezuela.  Which Latin American and African nations stand with us?

Those thinking World War III will only involve a few ‘major’ nations should review Axis and allies history world war, for nothing is less true.  Prayer and faith must accompany defensive war preparations, for billions of lives are at stake.

        As we wrote last week, according to conspiracy theory, world wars are planned.  They are not accidental.  Now the United States military seems to stretch itself to react to North Korea’s threats of nuclear bomb attacks.

But some readers and reporters write suspicious reactions to the recent U.S. push to rearm defenses in view of North Korea’s bluster.  While the U.S. usually ignores that nation’s grandstanding, all of a sudden our leaders take it seriously?

Thinkers are leery because the financial sequester imposed by Congress and the White House put across-the-board cuts on all military expenditures. So, it is ‘convenient’ to have an ‘enemy,’ and thus hopefully increase armament funding.

Writing ‘In response to North Korea and Iran, U.S. Will Beef Up Missile  Defenses,’ The Extinction Protocol (EP) and National Public Radio (NPR) quote Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel: “The United States will deploy 14 additional Ground-Based Missile Interceptors (GBIs) to combat the nuclear attack threats from North Korea and Iran.” How are these now to be financed?

Hagel adds the U.S. is also adding radar stations in Japan, and considering placing another interceptor missile site there. Yet, as they work to improve defenses, officials admit woeful lack of intelligence on North Korea’s capabilities.

Victor Cha, the Korea Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, adds:  “The bottom line is that we just don’t know where Pyongyang’s capabilities lie. These tests might represent lighter and smaller weapons. The North could be lying about that, but then again, maybe they aren’t.”

James Miller, Defense Undersecretary for Policy, insists: “As we think about our homeland missile-defense posture, we do not have a ‘just-in-time’ policy.  Our policy is to stay ahead of the threat—and to continue to ensure that we are ahead of any potential future Iranian or North Korean ICBM (intercontinental ballistic missile) capability.”

But what happened to the C.I.A.? What are their intelligence reports? How can the greatest nation on earth not know if North Korea is serious or not?  And didn’t China have some control over North Korea in the pass?

Of course, the problem is:  North Korea may not be faking.  U.S. defense capabilities on the West Coast may be weak.  And may be correct:  the tiny Communist half of Korea may be working with China and Iran to stretch the U.S. military so thin that it cannot defend itself––much less Israel, Europe, and allies in the Middle East.

Could all of this be planned, or are these just fake chess moves of ‘pretend’ wars?  Such quandaries are why First World War Angels of The LORD insist that Christians must pray:  “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty (1 Timothy 2: 1 – 2).” Prayer has the power to stop both fake and real!

And There Shall Be Signs: Cyber Attacks to Precede WWIII Nuclear War?

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 11:14 AM
March 19, 2013

    Most Americans are probably not aware that preludes to World War III already take place in robot, drone and internet spaces, and, as in all warfare, human beings––not their man-made engineered ‘toys’––are the ones ultimately affected.

Again, under the awareness-radar of most Americans, in 2010 the U.S. teamed up with Israel to organize cyber attacks on Iran’s well-hidden under-ground nuclear plants, thus disabling that country’s plan for nuclear weapons.  And now Iran retaliates by cyber assaults on U. S. banks.

In ‘War With Iran: US and Israel Cyber Warfare Against Iran Is Very Much Underway,‘ Christian Chung of writes:

“Beneath the public surface of six-party negotiations, inspections and reports from the International Atomic Energy Agency . . . and repeated promises from Iran and threats from the U.S., a quieter war is already underway.   A covert campaign of assassination, offensive cyber operations, sabotage, and other forms of coercion is being waged among the U.S., Iran, and Israel.

“The e-invasion first came to light in November of last year with the accidental but highly public discovery of the cyber attack that became known as “Stuxnet,” a cyber instrument of war designed to do unprecedented damage to Iran’s ability to control its uranium enrichment via its spinning centrifuges.”

Now China has entered this invisible war by attacking the U.S. in cyberspace too.  In ‘U.S. Demands China Block Cyberattacks and Agree to Rules,’ Mark Landler and David E. Sanger of the New York Times claim:

“The White House demanded Monday that the Chinese government stop the widespread theft of data from American computer networks and agree to ‘acceptable norms’ of behavior in cyberspace.”

That rebuff came after China’s Foreign Minister, “Yang Jiechi, rejected a growing body of evidence that his country’s military was involved in cyberattacks on American corporations and some government agencies.”

Yet the U.S. military thinks this country is still not cyber-ready.  Navy Adm. James G. Stavridis, commander of U.S. European Command and NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe, tells Donna Miles of Armed Forces Press Service:

“I think in cyber we find the greatest mismatch between our level of preparation and the level of danger.  This is something that cuts across all parts of government and all parts of society.”

So apparently we are at war, even while in sleep’s stupor.  As Paul demands in his version of Axis and Allies history world war :  “Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light (Ephesians 5:  14).”

U.S. and Its Politicians Should Be Ready For World War Three––Now!

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 9:25 AM
March 15, 2013

    Several world watchers are concerned that World War III may be starting right under our noses, and that, with this economic sequester limiting ship carriers and other military movements, even American politicians seem to be going along with what may well be a planned conspiracy to start World War III.

According to several sources that are knowledgable about current military readiness world-wide, initial countries to be involved are Iran, Russia, China, North and South Korea, and the United States. conspiracy theories insist that all wars are planned, not random, events: “Conspiratorial history studies that part of history that is a product of man’s planning. . . While the conspiratorial view is not accurate for weather, volcanoes and earthquakes, it is a realistic and accurate view of the interrelationship of man and nations.”

In discussing the immediate threat of North Korea’s intransigence in, ‘The Planned World War 3––A Play in Numerous Acts,’ explains:  “Once America is firmly entrenched into the Middle East with the majority of her first-line units, North Korea is to attack South Korea. Then, with America’s forces stretched well beyond the limit, China is to invade Taiwan.  This will usher in the start of World War Three.” Surely, that’s a concept the Pentagon and CIA consider!

On the other hand, The Extinction Protocol and Britain’s quote Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger: “ . . . a nuclear Iran in the foreseeable future” will also trigger nuclear war in the Middle East.

Kissinger believes that an armed Iran greatly increases nuclear proliferation in that region and the changes of an atomic war:  It would be “a turning point in human history. I believe this point will be reached in a very foreseeable future.”

Whether World War III would start with North Korea, or with Iran in the Middle East––either way Russia would be involved.  The Washington Free Beacon points out Russia just conducted the largest nuclear drills it has held in 20 years!

“The exercises followed a recent surge in Russian strategic bomber flights that include a recent circling of the U.S. Pacific island of Guam by two Tu-95 Bear bomber and simulated bombing runs by Tu-95s against Alaska and California in June and July.” The Pentagon would not comment on a high alert; but a U.S. official confirmed concern about the exercise’s scale and its number of weapons:

“Certainly it’s a concern when you have this kind of exercise going on.” He told the Free Beacon, “Russia appears to be increasing the readiness of its nuclear forces at a time when the U.S. nuclear complex is in urgent need of upgrading and the military is facing sharp automatic defense cuts that could affect. . .readiness . .”

The LORD Jesus advises about axis and allies history world war : “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves (Matthew 10: 16).”  America better wise up!

Difficult Divorce: Vatican Curia, Italian Culture, Mafia and The Pope

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 11:53 AM
March 12, 2013

    Divorce is always difficult, but in some cases it is impossible.  Before his ‘retirement,’ Pope Benedict appointed new money-laundering experts to ‘cleanse’ the Vatican Bank.  Now others suggest that the Curia––the central hub that runs Vatican affairs, including its bank––should be ‘de-Italianized.’

Fr Alexander Lucie-Smith tells The Catholic that the solution to Vatican banking intrigues is to “internationalize” the Curia––i.e. appoint other than Italian clergymen.  Of course, Italians greatly resist such thinking as heretical.

“It will take a mightily strong Pope to achieve what Paul VI, John Paul II and Benedict XVI all hoped but in the end failed to achieve. If change comes, these are the early signs to look out for: first of all, a non-Italian, even non-European Pope, . . .  appointment of new officials will bring with them . . . a new way of doing things, which will reflect that Italy is no longer the centre of the world, . . .”

The Vatican Bank has been suspected of Mafia ties for almost a century.  The Mafia Today writes that this bank,” . . .  the Institute for Works of Religion (the IOR), acquired a sulphurous reputation in the 1970s when its American head, Archbishop Paul Marcinkus, went into business first with Michele Sindona, a Cosa Nostra-linked financier who would end up convicted of bankruptcy and murder, and then Roberto Calvi, who would be found hanged under Blackfriars Bridge in London following the fraudulent collapse of his Banco Ambrosiano.

“But the bank’s reputation for skulduggery goes back further, almost to its inception in 1942. According to American intelligence documents . . .  a group of leading Italian industrialists met in Turin in 1945 to discuss how to conduct the forthcoming war against communism in Italy.  One of their first moves was to deposit a large sum . . . presumably in the newly-founded Vatican Bank.”

Apparently, the Vatican Bank produces funds necessary to keep the whole place running:  “ . . .  the secrecy of the IOR’s 35,000 accounts, $7.5 billion in assets and the $55 million a year the banking business produces for the church.”

According to ‘capo’ of Mafia Today in ‘Dirty Money, Dirtier Tricks,’ last March, even the “U.S. State Department, for the first time, included the Vatican in the list of states deemed to be ‘vulnerable’ to money laundering operations.”

Secret, deemed shady, bank dealings; suspicious deaths of past Vatican bank officials; and strong resistance to open strangely-kept bookkeeping––all lead to suspicions of Mafia involvement in Vatican financial affairs.

Author ‘capo’ writes:  “The reason for its “vulnerability” stems from the fact that it is recognized in international law as an independent state: money, therefore, can be freely moved abroad, side-stepping Italian regulations.”

In some extreme divorce cases, parties would rather destroy all their holdings––i.e. burn the ‘house’ down––before sharing wealth and power.  Cultural studies war history indicates such possible endings for rejected divorces. Certainly, such is that Great Divorce the prophet depicts in Revelation 17 and 18.

Number of Jews Murdered in WW2 Greater Than Thought: Prepare to Weep

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 23:49 PM
March 7, 2013

       New research recently disclosed that there were thousands more Nazi ghettos and concentration camps for Jews during the 12 years of Hitler’s reign than ever were imagined.  As the world prepares for World War III, one must wonder how many similar structures are now under preparation.

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum now concludes that there were over 40,000 internment locations throughout Nazi-occupied Europe.  A number far higher than most historians have estimated through the years.

In ‘The Holocaust Just Got More Shocking,’ Eric Lichtblau of the New York Times reveals:  “Thirteen years ago, researchers at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum began the grim task of documenting all the ghettos, slave labor sites, concentration camps and killing factories that the Nazis set up throughout Europe.  What they have found so far has shocked Holocaust scholars.

“The documented camps include not only “killing centers” but also thousands of forced labor camps, where prisoners manufactured war supplies; prisoner-of-war camps; sites euphemistically named “care” centers, where pregnant women were forced to have abortions or their babies were killed after birth; and brothels, where women were coerced into having sex . . .”
Thus, to prove their findings, Geoffrey Megargee and Martin Dean, lead editors of the study compiled a multivolume encyclopedia detailing tens of thousands of previously unknown sites they have recovered.

Each volume includes a full assessment locations found, including:  “living and working conditions, activities of the Jewish councils, Jewish responses to persecution, demographic changes, and details of the liquidation of the ghettos.”

These collections indicate that Hitler’s murderous Holocaust was far more entangled in European life than previously imagined.  Hartmut Berghoff, Director of the German Historical Institute, said with astonishment:  “We knew before how horrible life in the camps and ghettos was, but the numbers are unbelievable.”

Moreover, scholars, who have researched the Holocaust for years, have long insisted that the ‘official’ six million figure of the number of Jews that Nazis’ killed was indeed too low.  Now, with this new evidence, they can dig even deeper.

Everything about World War III will increase in numbers from its predecessor.  Instead of one continent the next Hitler-style leader will kill, maim and persecute on three continents.  And, instead of just Jews, he will see that millions more ‘rejected’ persons are interned, enslaved, and murdered.

In Bible historical books, the prophet Jeremiah witnessed wave after wave of his fellow citizens carried in servitude to Babylon, or modern-day Iraq.  He writes of Israel, “She weepeth sore in the night, . . . she hath none to comfort her: all her friends have dealt treacherously with her, they are become her enemies (Lamentations 1: 2). Jews, authentic Christians, and other ‘rejected’ people must find God in prayer, as they prepare to weep about things to come.

Malachy’s Prophecies, Hypocrisy, Ex-Pope & Cardinal Scandals! Part 5

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 23:54 PM
March 6, 2013

        Increasingly internet bloggers, overseas journalists and a few editorials in U.S. newspapers have become more than disgusted with allegations of child-rape, prosecutorial avoidance and official cover-ups in the Catholic Church for decades.

In one of his last articles, ‘The Great Catholic Cover-Up: The Pope’s Entire Career has the Stench of Evil About It,’ the late Christopher Hitchens quotes Rev. Gabriele Amorth who had been the Vatican’s chief exorcist for 25 years:

“ . . . the Devil is at work inside the Vatican . . . when one speaks of ‘the smoke of Satan’ in the holy rooms, it is all true—including these latest stories of violence and pedophilia.”  An astounding accusation from one experienced in dealing with devils! They may not be ministers, but several writers agree with him.

Hitchens says it was inevitable that the scandal would reach the top of the church, when the College of Cardinals elected Joseph Ratzinger––the one Cardinal chiefly responsible for the cover-ups––to be Pope, supposedly the vicar of Christ!

From the first recorded incident of child rape in 1979, Hitchens claims Ratzinger, then an archbishop, transferred the offending priest––who had locked the boy, Wilfried F., in a mountain retreat’s cabin and forced oral sex upon him––to another church for “therapy.” But the offender soon returned to raping boys.

The late author claims:  “This is common or garden stuff, very familiar to American and Australian and Irish Catholics whose children’s rape and torture, and the cover-up of same by the tactic of moving rapists and torturers from parish to parish, has been painstakingly and comprehensively exposed.”  Hitchens expounds that even the ex-Pope’s brother, Monsignor Georg Ratzinger, admits to ‘slapping the boys around’ at the choir school he ran for some 30 years.

Further, this esteemed author says: “Ratzinger issued a confidential letter to every bishop. In it, he reminded them of the extreme gravity of a certain crime. But that the crime was the reporting of the rape and torture. The accusations, intoned Ratzinger, were only treatable within the church’s own exclusive jurisdiction.”  Thus, disclosure of these crimes was “under penalty of excommunication.”

As either Archbishop, Cardinal or Pope, Joseph Ratzinger may have been trying to protect guilty priest by not responding to charges against them. However, he should have been aware that Christ Himself––for Whom the ex-Pope claimed to work––has said that child sex-offenders are never forgiven and are bound for hell:

“And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea (Matthew 9: 42).”

Further, according to historical Books of the Old Testament, the greatest sins are those committed by charlatans claiming to do God’s work in His Holy Name (Isaiah 14, Ezekiel 28, etc.).  They have special seats in eternal abodes as well!

Malachy’s Prophecies, Hypocrisy & Church & Cardinal Scandals! Part 4

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 1:31 AM
March 6, 2013

Because, as Bible inspired writing teaches in 1 Timothy 6: 10, that “the love of money is the root of all evil,” 21st Century Catholic and Protestant ministers over large religious organizations should demonstrate more caution with funds.

        But in this last century of man’s rule of earth, both sets of church leaders are remiss in this temptation. Protestant ministers with mega-television outreaches usually own massive mansions, automobiles, and other finery.  And Catholic ministers hide billions in wealth away from parishioners and public eyes.

While they store their wealth among themselves, most ministries among them do little outreach to help the poor, as Christ commanded. brooklynbadboy of Daily Kos analyses:  “ . . . the Church does not, as a rule, use its wealth to fight poverty in the public policy sphere. . . it limits itself to a charitable role only.

“So it appears one area of Church doctrine, personal behavior is worth fighting for in the public arena. But the other area of Church doctrine, which lends itself to a social democratic view of dividing the spoils of civilization, gets almost no political support.”

Adele M. Stan’s writes a collection on ways in which Cardinals of the Catholic Church manipulated facts to get around laws and moral standards about rape and pedophilia.  She cites such blatant illegalities in “Scandal Spectacle: The 10 Most Corrupt and Compromised Cardinals Voting For the New Pope.”

Giving details about Cardinals who: moved accused priest around the world to protect them from prosecution and allowed other priest to continue working around children, shut-down investigation of priest under their supervision,  coached priests on ways to avoid prosecution, failed to turn over evidence of child-rape to prosecutors, stalled investigations in order to wait out statues of limitation, filed bankruptcy to avoid paying financial settlements with rape victims, etc.

Both Catholic and Protestant groups claim their donations go to pay salaries and expand ministries, but methods of evangelism generally lags around the world, because potential converts view churches’ present actions as filled with hypocrisy.

Present allegations about rampant child and adult sexual advances and rapes, group homosexual practices, thefts, crime denials, false bankruptcies, etc.––reinforce conclusions of hypocrisy in the highest ranks.

In His earthly ministry, The LORD Jesus warned Christian ministers of failure if they followed the route of those pharisees who eventually crucified Him:
“Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.

“For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, . . . (Matthew 23: 1 – 5).”
