Blasphemous Catholic prayer to St. Joseph – as if he’s God!

I was shocked to hear this blasphemous prayer prayed out loud on EWTN radio, yesterday, especially since David Anders has been promising listeners of his show, Called to Communion, that praying to ‘saints’ in heaven and Mary is not worship, but is just like asking for prayer from a friend who has a perfect relationship with God.

My jaw dropped as I heard this prayer prayed out loud on air, as it’s clearly pure blasphemy, asking Joseph to aid, strengthen, protect, and defend us through his powers. We “having implored the help of your thrice-holy Spouse… earnestly beg you to take us also under your protection;” “we beseech you and we humbly pray that you will look down graciously;” “help us in our need by your power and strength;” Aid us from on high, most valiant defender”….

According to the Bible, people in heaven don’t hear our prayers, and don’t have Godlike powers to answer them. Jesus is our intercessor. We don’t pray to people.

This is pure blasphemy.

((( HOW ))) Cheap Grace Gospels DECEIVE you

EXCELLENT! I’ve been studying this lately: Peter warned in 2 Peter how slick preachers were twisting Paul’s words even back then, “UTTERING GREAT SWELLING WORDS OF EMPTINESS, they ENTICE THE LUSTS of the flesh, by licentiousness, those who are indeed escaping [born-again Christians] from those who live in error; promising them liberty, while they themselves are bondservants of corruption; for a man is brought into bondage by whoever overcomes him” (2 Peter 2:18-19).

2 Peter 3:14-18:

Therefore, beloved, seeing that you look for these things, BE DILIGENT to be found in peace, without defect and blameless in his sight. Regard the patience of our Lord as salvation; even as our beloved brother PAUL also, according to the wisdom given to him, WROTE TO YOU, as also in all of his letters, speaking in them of these things. In those, there are SOME THINGS that are HARD TO UNDERSTAND, WHICH THE ignorant and UNSETTLED TWIST, as they also do to the other Scriptures, to their own destruction. YOU therefore, beloved, knowing these things beforehand, BEWARE, lest being carried away with the error of the wicked, you FALL from your own steadfastness. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Also, most pastors today preach mostly from Paul’s letters. An estimate I heard recently is 90% from Paul, who wrote some things that are hard to understand, whose words are easy to twist, Peter stated — while Peter is hardly ever quoted. Even Jesus’ words are twisted. Most often, John 10:28-29 is quoted without verse 27. And “Jesus didn’t really mean we’re in danger of hell” if we look at a woman to lust after her, for example.

Paul predicted OSAS and “only believe”:

“For The TIME WILL COME when THEY WILL NOT LISTEN to the sound doctrine, but, having itching ears, will heap up for themselves TEACHERS AFTER THEIR OWN LUSTS; and will TURN AWAY THEIR EARS FROM THE TRUTH, and turn aside to *FABLES*” (2 Tim. 4:3-4)

Broussard: Paul’s promise in Romans 8:38-39 — Our sin can separate us; these external things cannot if we’re walking in Love

Karlo Broussard is a Catholic theologian. *Some* of their ideas are more Biblical than what’s mainstream among Protestants.

NOTE/DISCLAIMER: I am NOT promoting Catholicism by posting this. I strongly reject praying to Mary and people who may be in heaven who can’t hear us to know how to pray for us. Adoring Mary and praying repetitive prayers to her in the Rosary borders on blasphemy. Also, Mary was not born sinless, like Jesus. This one really bothers me: the Catholic church (CC) teaches that Christians should NOT be like the Bereans, who Paul considered “more noble” because they eagerly received what Paul said and studied the Bible daily to make sure what Paul told them was true. The CC teaches that they are the true church, and their leaders and tradition decides what is true and not true. They believe their tradition and what the Pope says can trump what the Bible says. I completely reject that, and that there even is a pope. And Peter was NOT the first pope. James was the leader in Jerusalem, and was an apostle, not a pope. The CC didn’t start until centuries later. Priests (mediators) and calling them “Father” is also not Biblical. In the new covenant, Jesus is our only Priest. They teach that purgatory is a fact that people can depend on, instead of making sure we’re right with God and people now so we’ll have clear consciences, “no condemnation” before God when we die; though, some Catholic teachers do emphasize being right with God and people now so we’ll have saving grace when we die, which I applaud! Another dangerous doctrine: like the Lutherans, they believe infant baptism saves them, instead of “believe and be baptized,” which infants cannot do, but Catholics believe they can forfeit their salvation, unlike Lutherans, who are taught that their infant baptism seals their salvation, which is responsible for sending billions to hell, as is the Protestant teaching of “once saved, always saved” because we said the born-again prayer. We must actually abide in Christ to be “in Christ.” I am encouraged in seeing more and more Catholics being closer to what the New Testament actually says about who goes to heaven, especially my friend, David Anders, who hosts a show on EWTN called “Called to Communion.” However, I’m deeply disheartened by serious false teaching still taught and practiced by the Catholic church.

• • •

This is what I’ve often said regarding Paul’s “what can separate us” passage at the end of Romans 8:

The “who shall separate us” promise in Romans 8:35 and “no condemnation” statement in verse 1 only applies to those who actually are “in Christ” based upon what Paul says in three different ways in verses 1-17:

Verse 1b: “who don’t walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”

Verse 4b: “who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”

Verse 13: “For if you live after the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.”

Verse 14: “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are children of God.”

Verse 17b: “joint-heirs with Christ; if indeed we suffer with him, that we may also be glorified with him.”

– –

I say salvation is guaranteed for those who have “no condemnation” because we actually abide in Christ, not walking to the flesh but according to the Spirit. As long as we stay in this condition, nothing can take our salvation away from us, Paul’s promise near the end of Romans 8.

Broussard’s emphasizes here is that Paul’s list of things that can’t take our salvation away in Romans 8:38-39 are all external. Our own willful and unrepentant sin is not in this list. We can forfeit our salvation if we don’t walk in Love. Continue reading “Broussard: Paul’s promise in Romans 8:38-39 — Our sin can separate us; these external things cannot if we’re walking in Love”

Vegetarianism: Telling people we can’t eat meat a doctrine of demons?

Paul clearly says in 1 Timothy 4:

1 But the Spirit says expressly that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 through the hypocrisy of men who speak lies, branded in their own conscience as with a hot iron, 3 forbidding marriage and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. 4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, if it is received with thanksgiving. 5 For it is sanctified through the word of God and prayer.

Peter Helland & Mario Sims: Slave/Master Relationship — Many today don’t want to obey Christ | Many then actually were slaves

Sobering!

Peter Helland and Pastor Mario Sims discuss doulos, the Greek word for “slave”. They discuss why Mario named his church Doulos Chapel. And they discuss the reality that Jesus, Himself, took on the form of a slave and became obedient unto death, even death on the cross. And then they discuss the Slave/Master relationship, whether this relationship is a sinful and forbidden relationship in the Scriptures as most Americans believe it is or whether it is a relationship that God permits under certain circumstances. They look into 1 Timothy, chapter 6, the first few verses, which summarizes the New Testament teaching on the Master/Servant relationship. The purpose of the show is to reveal how drastically wrong our culture is regarding this extremely important Doctrine.

Debate: Atheist Claims Jesus is a Hoax – Slippery Philosopher David Skrbina v. Factual Theologian Peter Williamson

MY NOTES – Including transcriptions:

21:35 Skrbina disbelieves the gospel accounts of Jesus and doubts Jesus even existed: “I think he did exist. I think he was a mortal man. I’m not totally sure. I’m kind of on the fence on this one. But for the sake of this debate, let’s say he existed. …”

28:16 Skrbina claims many secular authors would have written about Jesus from Palestine in the 1st century, 2000 years ago.

Wiliamson: We only have one secular author’s work from Palestine on any subject, Josephus, who does write about Jesus: Continue reading “Debate: Atheist Claims Jesus is a Hoax – Slippery Philosopher David Skrbina v. Factual Theologian Peter Williamson”

Neuroimaging of brain activity during glossolalia does not show activity in the language areas of the brain.[67][68]

A study done by the American Journal of Human Biology found that speaking in tongues was associated with both a reduction in circulatory cortisol, and enhancements in alpha-amylase enzyme activity – two common biomarkers of stress reduction that can be measured in saliva.[73] 

Several sociological studies report various social benefits to engaging in Pentecostal glossolalia,[74][75] such as an increase in self-confidence.[75] Continue reading “[Wikipedia] ‘Speaking in tongues’: Studies show no activity in brain’s language areas — stress reduction & increase in self-confidence”

One of Ron Wyatt’s favorite subjects was ‘how the pyramids were built’. He was especially interested because he knew Imhotep, or Joseph, son of Jacob (Israel) was the builder of the first pyramid. His discovery of how these massive monuments were made was not something he set out of learn. It was an encounter at the tomb of Onias that led him to an amazing discovery.

‘Hebrew Roots’ Busted! Christianity is Not ‘Judaism Plus Jesus’ — “By calling this covenant ‘new’ he has made the first one obsolete” (Heb. 8:13)

“But now we have been *discharged from the law*, having died to that in which we were held; so that *we serve in newness of the spirit*, and not in oldness of the letter” (Rom. 7:6).

“If you are LED BY THE SPIRIT, you are not under the law” (Galatians 5:18).

The former regulation is set aside because it was weak and useless (for the law made nothing perfect), and a better hope is introduced, by which we draw near to God” (Hebrews 7:18-19).

“By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete…” (Hebrews 8:13).

Ten things you need to know about the King James Bible — James intentionally altered texts

Ten things you need to know about the King James Bible

by [Nick Page]

Amidst all the literary luvvies gushing over the quality of the prose and the RADA trained voices reading it in Radio 4 speak a few salient facts aren’t getting much attention. So here are ten things you ought to know about the KJV. They are taken from God’s Dangerous Book – a book on the history of the Bible…. But here’s the shorter version:

Ten things you need to know about the King James Bible

1. It was widely ignored on publication. Far from being an instant classic, The King James, or Authorised Version, was widely ignored on first publication  for one very good reason: hardly anyone wanted it in the first place.

2. It was never intended as a means of giving the Bible to the people: it was intended as a way of stopping them using the Bible they already had.
 The people already had a great English translation  – the Geneva version. James I hated that because he thought its footnotes were seditious. So he specifically commanded that the new version should be done without footnotes.

3.  It was a revision not a new translation. James ordered that it be based on the text of the Bishops’ Bible of 1568. James instructed that the new version was to be ‘as little altered as the truth of the original [i.e. the Bishop’s Bible] will permit’.

4. It was a politically motivated translation. James also instructed that ‘the old ecclesiastical words to be kept, viz. the word Church not to be translated Congregation.’ James insisted that ekklesia be translated as church and that the word ‘bishop’ be used instead of ‘elder’. So you get verses like Acts 1.20, where the Geneva Bible has Continue reading “Ten things you need to know about the King James Bible — James intentionally altered texts”
