In the last 500 years the world has been turning more and more protestant, the religion of the freemasons. Before the protestant schism in the early 1500's, all Christians were united in one Christian Religion, one Christian Church, the Catholic Church.
"Now therefore you are no more strangers and foreigners; but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and the domestics of God, Built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone:
In whom all the building, being framed together, groweth up into an holy temple in the Lord.
In whom you also are built together into an habitation of God in the Spirit."
- Ephesians 2:19-22
In the overwhelming majority of the history of Christianity, for +1,600 years, all Christians were Catholic, until the 1500's when Martin Luther began the protestant schism (also referred to as 'reformation') and rebelled from the Catholic Church and began to spread heresy. The history of Christianity IS the history of the Catholic Church. There is only one true Christian Church, the one Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church founded by Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, which can be traced back to the Apostles.
Nowadays, there are more than +40,000 protestant churches, each one different, expressing their own idioms, principles and teachings. There is not, and cannot be multiple churches which teach mutually exclusive doctrines, that are all true. There is only one Truth and one True Christian Church, the Catholic Church;
"Careful to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
One body and one Spirit; as you are called in one hope of your calling.
One Lord, one faith, one baptism.
One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in us all." - Ephesians 4:3-6
And because the Catholic Church is the true Church of Christ it has been under attack by spiritual forces of wickedness since it’s inception when Our Lord walked the Earth. Any Catholic/Christian whom seeks the truth, as is asked of us by the Lord, knows that the upper echelons of the Church have been infiltrated by evil forces in an effort to bend, pervert, distort and obliterate the Word of God and the Apostolic succession.
A Christian seeks the Truth regardless of how uncomfortable it may make them feel, even if it forces them to confront truths that will change their life.
“If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth.” -1 John 1:6
If you truly seek God you must follow the truth, only the truth resides in and with Jesus Christ and only Christ Our Lord can lead us to the Father in Heaven.
“Jesus saith to him: I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man cometh to the Father, but by me.” - John 14:6
It was Jesus whom founded the Catholic Church, the imperfect parts are of man and the perfect, the Sacraments, especially the Eucharist (the Lord’s Supper), can only come from Our Lord. The protestant schism did and continues to create confusion & division, and it is leading to the destruction of Christendom.
”This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. And in vain do they worship me, teaching doctrines and precepts of men. For leaving the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men, the washing of pots and of cups: and many other things you do like to these.” Mark 7:6-8
Martin Luther taught heresy and blasphemies, he profaned the Bible and twisted it's meaning to suit his own desires. Luther, was an excommunicated Augustinian Catholic Monk in Erfurt Germany, whom was not merely content to just live out his heresies, instead he persistently forced his errors onto others, just as the advent of the printing press was taking hold, which allowed him to spread his heresies much farther and faster than in previous centuries.
Luther ascribed to the teaching of the Church concerning good works, all the while he was living in direct and absolute opposition to its doctrinal teaching and disciplinary code.
Although Luther was correct in rebuking the few instances of the monetization of plenary indulgences by rogue clergy it does not excuse his many other erroneous claims, wild suppositions and dangerous substitutions of once commonly understood Christian moral principles. Luther convinced himself that man, as a consequence of original sin, was totally depraved, destitute of free will, that all works, even though directed towards the good, were nothing more than an outgrowth of his corrupted will, and in the judgments of God in reality, mortal sins. As Luther puts it “Man can be saved by faith alone. Our faith in Christ makes His merits our possession, envelopes us in the garb of righteousness, which our guilt and sinfulness hide, and supplies in abundance every defect of human righteousness.”
Luther thought we should “Be a sinner and sin on bravely, but have stronger faith and rejoice in Christ, who is the victor of sin, death, and the world."
"All things are clean to the clean: but to them that are defiled, and to unbelievers, nothing is clean: but both their mind and their conscience are defiled. They profess that they know God: but in their works they deny him; being abominable, and incredulous, and to every good work reprobate." - Titus 1:15-16
Luther continues: "Do not for a moment imagine that this life is the abiding place of justice: sin must be committed. To you it ought to be sufficient that you acknowledge the Lamb that takes away the sins of the world, the sin cannot tear you away from him, even though you commit adultery a hundred times a day and commit as many murders.” (Enders, “Briefwechsel”, III, 208).
"And whosoever shall keep the whole law, but offend in one point, is become guilty of all." -James 2:10
This is Luther's new "doctrine of justification" by faith, then in its inchoate stage, it was gradually developed and was erroneously claimed as one of the "central doctrines of [Luther's so-called] christianity".
"As also in all his [Paul] epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are certain things hard to be understood, which the unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, to their own destruction. You therefore, brethren, knowing these things before, take heed, lest being led aside by the error of the unwise, you fall from your own steadfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and unto the day of eternity. Amen."
- 2 Peter 3:16-18 Luther could have affected a positive change in the Church, rather he decided to rebel and his rebellion has cost many souls. i.e. Luther’s, man-made ‘doctrine’, through the amputation and reconstruction of the Bible.
Luther produced his ‘bible’ in 1521–1522 while in hiding at the Wartburg Castle in Germany. He had just been excommunicated by the Church and declared an outlaw by the Roman Empire. The time to push his man-made theology was running short and he felt he needed to act fast. Despite the falsehoods claimed and propagated by protestants Luther was not the first one to translate the bible into German, in fact there were at least 26 German translations available in Germany before Luther's rendition and these German Bibles were already available to the public. In 382 A.D. St. Jerome was commissioned by Pope Damasas to produce a Latin Bible and it took him more than 15 years to translate, what we now call, the Vulgate Bible. How could Luther have possibly translated the New Testament from Greek to German in only 10 weeks? Protestant Scholar Dr. Henry Clay Vedder provides an explanation in his book The Reformation in Germany: ”It would be difficult in any case to believe that a complete translation of the entire New Testament could have been made by a man of Luther's limited attainments in Greek, and with the imperfect apparatus that he possessed, in the short space of 10 weeks. A minister today, who has had the Greek course of a college and 'seminary', is a far better scholar than Luther. Let such a man, if he thinks Luther's achievement possible, attempt the accurate translation of a single chapter of the New Testament, such a translation as he would be willing to print under his own name and multiply the time consumed by 260 chapters. He will speedily be convinced that the feat attributed to Luther is an impossible one. What then? Is the whole story false? That, too, is impossible the main facts are too well attested. The solution of an apparently insoluble contradiction is a very simple one: Luther did not make an independent translation; he never claimed he did; none of his contemporaries made that claim for him. It is only later admirers who have made this statement to enhance his ‘glory’.” So, if Luther couldn't have had time to do an actual translation, and never claimed he did, then how did he produce what became known as the "Luther Bible"? Luther used a German version of the New Testament that was available during his time, the Codex Teplensis. Which contained seven articles of faith that are evidently Waldensian, [The Waldensians were a heretical group that broke away from the Christian Church in the 12th century and were later absorbed into the Protestant Schism.] many have been led to attribute to this version a Waldensian origin. Others have pointed out a Catholic origin for the version." This (Codex Teplensis - c. 1400) version was in the possession of Luther, and was certainly used by him in the preparation of his version. It appears from a verse by verse comparison that this old German Bible was industriously used by Luther and the only accurate description of Luther's version is to call it a “careful revision of the older text”.
"Now the end of the commandment is charity, from a pure heart, and a good conscience, and an unfeigned faith.
From which things some going astray, are turned aside unto vain babbling:
Desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither the things they say, nor whereof they affirm." - 1 Timothy 1:5-7
Hartman Grisar, wrote a six-volume biography of Martin Luther and reported that Jerome Emser, the well-respected German theologian and Luther's contemporary, complained about Luther: "It was partly the defects of the translation itself, partly the cleverly calculated and thus all the more dangerous marginal glosses, which called forth objections and warnings from Catholic writers as soon as the work was published," Grisar said. Luther distorted Scripture in order to make it appear as though faith and works, even when neither faith nor works are thought of in the Scripture in question. Emser speaks of more than 1,400 passages which Luther had reiterated Biblical passages in a false and heretical sense.
"That henceforth we be no more children tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine by the wickedness of men, by cunning craftiness, by which they lie in wait to deceive."
- Ephesians 4:14 Because of Luther's extremely intense desire for a 'certainty' which suits his idea of everlasting salvation, Luther desperately wanted to have all Scripture teach salvation by faith alone and so he claimed that he "found" it everywhere. He wanted everyone else to do the same so he took every opportunity, both in the text (of his 'bible') itself and also in the prefaces to each book, to force Scripture to uphold his radical, heretical and never-before-taught version of ‘salvation’. Throughout his persistent fervency to push his heretical teachings Martin Luther's claim, that salvation by 'faith alone' was clear throughout the Holy Scriptures, was despite the contrary understanding of every scriptural expert and theologian that came before him in the previous +1,500 years. Luther was the first to claim to see Scripture as supporting anything remotely similar to salvation by faith alone. There was no translating by Luther, he merely copied and edited already available German Bibles, he had no theological epiphany to Holy Scripture just heresy that was developed and spread by someone who had an overwhelming desire to change Scripture and the Church of Our Lord, the Catholic Church, to suit his fancy. He had an extremely arrogant attitude and a complete hatred and lack of respect for authority and as well as anyone who disagreed with his new theology.
The KJV is no better than Luther’s 'bible', both omit, add and subtract from the Holy Scripture. The KJV was not translated from the Septuagint like every Bible that came before it.The KJV was compiled from a contemporary Jewish Scripture (what was contemporary for that time). The issue with this is the Jews reformed their scriptural canon at the Council of Jamnia after the death of Christ. Many of the books found in the Septuagint were removed from the new Jewish Scripture by the rabbinical council, for various reasons. By not using the Septuagint, or older Jewish texts the translators for the KJV unfortunately used a version of Jewish Scripture that had been drastically changed after the death of Christ. The writers of the KJV used the Textus Receptus to translate the Greek into English. It contains a number of readings which were obtained through 'other avenues' besides the Greek manuscripts, meaning they are not found in any Greek manuscript at all..
The Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Oriental Orthodox bibles are all based on the Septuagint (though all three have different numbers of books in their bibles). The Catholic Church, in recognition that some books in the Old Testament were no longer found in the Jewish Canon called these books "deuterocanonical," meaning they were still Christian Canon, just of a different order. The Protestants removed these books from their 'bibles' altogether and called them "Apocrypha", meaning writings that they did not consider 'genuine'.
The arrogance of these men (the fruit of Luther's rebellion) behind the compilation of the KJV is beyond astounding.. With malice a forethought (conscious or not) and no regard for the will of God, merely their own selfish desires, they completely disregarded well known and established Christian truths, foundational principles and doctrines to produce literature for their own false religion. Only the Catholic Bibles have always contained and retained all of the books of the complete Bible. The KJV removed the Book of Tobit, the Book of Judith, the Book of Wisdom, the Book of Sirach, the Book of Baruch, the Book of 1st Maccabees, the Book of 2nd Maccabees, as well as Chapters 13 & 14 of the Book of Daniel and Chapters 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 & 16 of the Book of Ester, a total of 103 verses from Ester, which were all REMOVED from the Bible.
The writers of the KJV pick and chose what books and verses from the Bible, the word of God, that suited their desires and what books did not fit their man-made version (perversion) of 'christianity'. Many of the books removed from the Bible caused an even greater divide in Christianity, eventually leading to the heretics breaking away from Catholicism to form the many different protestant beliefs.
Maccabees for example talks about praying for the dead, a foundation in Catholicism is praying for the dead so that they they may enter Heaven. This passage is in part, one of several passages, where the confirmation of Purgatory is found in the Bible. Protestants do not believe in Purgatory, nor do they believe we need to pray for the dead, they think the faithful enter Heaven immediately, and are saved by Faith alone with no regard for the consequences of their actions, their works. The missing books from the KJV can completely change a person's theology. When Martin Luther was rearranging the bible to promote his schism (aka the Protestant 'Reformation') and to break away from the Catholic Church, he considered taking books out of the New Testament as well, specifically the ones which confirm Catholic theology (such as the Epistle of James) and Catholicism as the true Church of Christ. He was eventually convinced not to by colleagues. One book in particular that he was considering taking out was John's Book of the Apocalypse, also known as "Revelation". There are many Protestant sects today that obsess over the Book of Apocalypse (aka Revelation), consider how different things would be if Martin Luther had his way and Revelation never ended up in the Protestant bible. The result of the KJV and its use of unfounded new texts, borrowed translations, creative interpretations and omissions of many books in the Bible lead to the effect of never ending doctrinal confusion, ecclesial division and the damnation of many, many, souls..
The reason there are now more than +40,000 false protestant 'faiths' is because of men like Luther & Calvin, and those of similar ilk, whom when they encountered a part of religion which didn't live up to their standards they broke away to form their own 'church', with a new set of principles and doctrines. Luther created a snowball effect, he broke away from the true Church (the Catholic Church) and formed his own man-made theology and faith, then later another man did the same and broke away from Lutheranism to create his own church, then another man did the same leading to another faith and so on and so forth and every time a new false 'christian' religion was formed it was removed farther and farther away from the Church founded by Our Lord Jesus Christ. To put this in perspective, since Luther rebelled, on average, 80 new false 'christian churches' were formed every year for 500 years.. Each one spouting their own different new theology. That's 6.66 new churches every month for 500 years, or 1.666 new churches every single week for 500 years.
The Catholic Church is often referred to as the "Mother Church" by many protestants because they are perfectly aware that they have broke away from the true faith of God, they just don't care, they think they know better than God. This is an apparent and classic example of the sin of pride and the dangers of false prophets, we were warned this would happen.
"But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there shall be among you lying teachers, who shall bring in sects of perdition, and deny the Lord who bought them: bringing upon themselves swift destruction.
And many shall follow their riotousnesses, through whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you. Whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their perdition slumbereth not."
- 2 Peter 2:1-3
We need to look at the big picture, the new ‘bibles’ combined with the astounding number of protestant sects and the invasion and infiltration into the Catholic Church has created much confusion.
The heretics and freemasons now unfortunately sit on the chair of St. Peter, as foretold in the Bible as well as by many Saints, which I will address at a later date. The true Church now resides in those that hold to the traditions of the apostolic faith, the Catholic Church, prior to the corruption by Vatican II, i.e. the SSPX (Society of Saint Pius X, the 10th), not in those whom profess false doctrines and dogmas. The men in Rome broke away from the Church in 1962 at the conclusion of Vatican II, when an evil first infiltrated the Jesuits and then into the hierarchy, but this is a topic for another time, the Church lives on in the small parishes, monasteries and the SSPX all around the world and they are growing, even despite the efforts of Bergolio (also known as Pope Francis) and his Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum.
Most protestants opposition to Catholicism seems to be not with the Catholic Church itself but rather the "ape" of the Church, the false church, which for the moment is overshadowing the Church of Our Lord, through those whom have usurped the high offices but do not hold to the traditions of the Catholic faith. Many prophecies foretold that the Devil would seek to destroy the Church of Our Lord, the Catholic Church, from within, through deception and inception. The attack against Christianity was first prominent during the protestant schism, we need to remember that for more than +1,600 years, ALL Christians were Catholic, ALL Christians were UNITED under the Triune God. Since then the errors of freemasonry and protestantism have spread incessantly. This article is but a small glipse into the discord that has been sown into the hearts and minds of the masses. In order to seek God we must be willingly to accept the truth, don’t let prejudices, assumptions or the comforts of this world lead you astray. We are very close to the end, to the apocalypse, which has already started, it's more and more evident that we will live to see the anti-christ. The New/One World Order (NWO) is being implemented as we speak, there plan had been accelerated through the covid-19 hoax, soon, our generation will watch as the anti-christ takes the seat as the head of the NWO.
