Catholic condemnation of Protestants and others

This learned Jesuit priest Mitch Pacwa is on EWTN for his Tuesday night show telling Roman Catholics that Vatican II didn't change any of the church's teachings. Baloney. It totally accepted ecuminism, which was totally rejected by the church prior to Vatican II. (See required-for-salvation teaches of various popes below).

Then "Father" Mitch Pacwa launches into the ecumenical teachings of Vatican II- and tells everybody that Protestants can be saved because, according to Vatican II, they have "elements of truth" in their churches--such as baptism. Then Mitch reminds us that Vatican II tells us that the Orthodox Church has true priests and sacraments and though neither of these share in the "fullness" of the Catholic Church (Roman Pope and those in communion) they can be saved.

Of course, he (Mitch) fails to mention that numerous popes thoughout the history of the church have soundly condemned to hell Protestants, Eastern Orthodox and all others who are outside the Catholic Church. In other words, believe Jesuit "Father" Mitch and his heretical Roman Catholic Church at your own peril--according to many of his own popes throughout the ages....who issued the following required-for-salvation teachings:

Whoever is separated from the Church is united to an adulteress – Pope Leo XIII

Only Catholics can be considered Christians – Pope Pius VI D. 1500

Heretics such as Protestants, Jews, and Muslims are completely separated from the Body of Christ – Pope Eugene IV

Catholics must anathematize (condemn to hell) all heretics – Pope St. Martin 1

It is not against the will of God to burn heretics – Pope Leo X

Protestants have not the Trinity, life or salvation. – Pope Leo XIII

Outside the Church there is no true worship of God – Pope Gregory XVI

Non-Catholic worship is a disgrace and forbidden – Pope Clement V

The State must forbid non-Catholic religions – Pius IX

To be Christian, one must believe in the Papacy – Pius VI

One is not the child of God the Father, unless he takes the Church for his mother – Leo XIII

Whoever is outside the Catholic Church is not our brother. – Pope Leo XII

Outside the Church there is absolutely no salvation. – Pope Leo X

Heretics are the gates of Hell – Pope Vigilius

Ecumenism can meet with no kind of approval among Catholics – Pope Pius XI

To foster ecumenism is to reject the true religion – Pope Pius XI

Civil authority must be subject to the Church’s authority – Pope Boniface VIII

Those who die in mortal sin are destined for Hell – Pope Benedict XII

Only Catholics worship God – Pope Gregory XVI

The Catholic Church condemns all contrary opinions – Pope Eugene IV

ELCA - real Christian church?

I must ask, how is it that the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, which claims to be Christian, would ever have in good standing anyone such a Tiller who so easily destroyed lives in thousands of wombs. The fact that the ELCA permitted such moral hypocrisy within its doors is a demonstration of its own apostasy.

Jesus said in Matt. 7:3-5, "And why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ and behold, the log is in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye."

Our obligation as Christians is to first clean our own house and then look outward. If the Christian Church is not strong enough to expel the ungodly from its own doors, it will never be able to be a light to the unbelievers. And we will lose the cultural and moral war -- and with that, we will lose this country. Therefore, pray that the Lord God would clean the Christian Church.

But, I warn you. Praying for such a thing often brings what we are not prepared to accept: persecution. Persecution has been throughout the centuries one of the chief means by which God purifies his Church. We need purification and might be that persecution is how we are to be purified. So, if you desire the Church to be purified, pray that it be done according to God's will and that, if possible, persecution would be avoided. Rather, pray that God would send his Spirit and bring repentance to this nation.In the meantime, pray for the purification and strengthening of the body of Christ.

annulment concerns

The first of this year, the pope expressed concern about the number of annulments that were being granted and renewed calls for better guidelines.

Novusordowatch characterized the pope's concern as nothing more than "crocodile tears" :

'Pope' expresses concern over annulmentshttp://www.novusordowatch.org/archive2009-1.htm"The Holy Father focused his remarks on questions concerning mental incapacity in causes of nullity of marriage, which were raised by John Paul II in his addresses to the Roman Rota of 1987 and 1998. John Paul II's words, he said, 'give us the basic criteria, not only for studying the psychiatric and psychological examinations, but also for the judicial definition of the causes.'"

Novusordowatch Comments: The explosion of annulments ('Catholic divorces') after Vatican II has been such a scandal that on occasion Novus Ordo 'Popes' have felt compelled to feign concern. There is a very good reason that yearly figures for decrees of nullity went from under 1000 worldwide prior to the advent of the counterfeit church to a near-incomprehensible 50,000+ in the United States alone, and this reason is that dubious new causes of nullity were introduced (such as immaturity)―causes that had no precedent in the history of the Church―that made virtually any marriage a potential casualty. In millions of cases since the end of the Council, perfectly valid marriages have been declared null and families torn asunder.

Benedict, following the example of John Paul II, each January voices concern over the annulment scandal, but proceeds to do nothing whatsoever that would defend the sacrament.

No true Pope remotely concerned about the salvation of souls would for a moment permit such a state of affairs to continue, one that puts souls at risk in a twofold manner: 1. Assists the breakup of spouses, who are by the marital bond obliged to aid each other in the path to eternal life, and 2. Divides the family in such a way that the children, too, are at greater risk of damnation by being raised in a needlessly broken home. (Granted, in some cases there are situations that call for separation of spouses, but that does not involve trauma of a permanent and irreparable severing of marriage.)

Again, the falsity of Benedict's supposed concern, just like that of John Paul II, is unmistakable by his utter lack of action. Let no one be deceived by the rhetoric; this man is no friend of families.---Novusordowatch.org
