For November 15, 2011
note, opinion and commentary:
Rev. Father Deacon
Christopher Herman, the son of our former spiritual father, Vladyka Michael
Peter Herman of reposed memory for providing us the articles and their various
We believe that what is presented is a step in
the right direction to bring our Orthodox Faith alive to all and a means to cure
some of the ills that separate our Roman faithful from the root, ground and base
of all things Christian: being Orthodox Catholic Christianity that began in the
A.D. 800's and culminated in the official schism of the Roman Jurisdiction of
the Catholic Church from Orthodoxy in 1054 A.D.
By presenting these
articles and informational pages and
subsequent, hoped for, weekly presentations, this endeavor will reach a wider
audience and provide a means for dialogue. For it is in and through the
Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ, our Savior, that love, compassion and
understanding may come about. In saying this truth, it also means that we
make another attempt to fulfill the ideal of why we are called "Christian" ...
Orthodoxy is not a religion. It is CHRISTIANITY itself! To a true
Christian, the events taking place through out the world and locally in the USA
is important because of how it may (and in some instances has) affected our
religious rights and freedoms here in the U.S.A and in some other Western World

"The Environmental Defense
Fund (EDF), the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), the
Food Animal Concerns Trust (FACT), and the Union of Concerned Scientists
(UCS) all agree that using penicillin and tetracyclines (antibiotics
used to treat humans) in animal feed to bulk animals up and cause them
grow faster is an unacceptable threat to public health. But the FDA
apparently does not agree, as it claims that implementing any sort of
ban will be "too expensive and resource intensive," according to a FACT
The FDA stated in its response to the lawsuit that, rather than forcibly
restrict the use of antibiotics, the agency will instead allow drug
companies to continue "self-regulating" themselves. In other words, it
is just more business as usual at the taxpayer-funded Big Pharma agency
that looks out for special interests rather than the interests of the
"Fascism is an ideology
and ideologies usually don't create inter-generational conspiracies.
People create them by USING ideologies. This is why it is far more
likely that what we have identified (with many others) as a great,
intergenerational banking conspiracy is behind today's growing new world
order rather than "Nazis.""
"The whole idea of the EU
is to centralize a huge swath of a geographical region that contains
numerous cultures and tribes that have traditionally shown antipathy to
each other. The elites who created this horror-show have been quite
aware that a currency-driven union would collapse. Therefore, the plan
was evidently and obviously to use the collapse to further tighten and
centralize the union.
But in our view, something has "queered the works" – the Internet and,
subsequently, what we have called the Internet Reformation. This has
allowed many more people than the elites anticipated to understand the
strategy behind the planned obsolescence of the Union.
The move toward global governance has been set back by this
understanding – and the subsequent anger – and a campaign has been
launched to move the EU toward a greater union. The Economist,
positioned as a sophisticated thought magazine is helping to lead the

"Complaints against the
army have soared. In the four years to 2006, the National Human Rights
Commission (CNDH) received 691 such accusations. In the next four years,
following the troops’ deployment, it received 4,803. Officials admit
that many cases go unreported. On November 9th, Human Rights Watch (HRW),
a lobby, presented evidence of the police and army’s role in 24
extrajudicial killings, 39 disappearances and 170 cases of torture since
December 2006—all in just five of Mexico’s 31 states. “Rather than
strengthening public security in Mexico, Calderón’s ‘war’ has
exacerbated a climate of violence, lawlessness and fear,” it said.
The Inter-American Court of Human Rights has declared Mexico’s military
tribunals illegal four times. In July the country’s own Supreme Court
ruled in agreement. But the tribunals go on. Mr Zamora says that
changing the law is a “high priority”. But Mr Calderón himself has
suggested placing only some crimes under civilian jurisdiction, leaving
others—including extrajudicial execution—to the army. With the war going
badly, the government seems in no hurry to expose soldiers’ wrongdoing."
Sending soldiers to do the job of
police has led to widespread abuses
"We've been writing for
months on the possibility that the entire EU crisis is a kind of
contrived one and this article post at Der Spiegel Online does nothing
to discourage this supposition.
It's likely nothing more than a power elite dominant social theme, that
the Euro-crisis is a deadly one and that the EU simply cannot figure out
what to do. The meme is simple: Financial leaders with power and common
sense must come to the rescue.
Isn't it obvious who the heroes are going to be? Why, the central
bankers, of course! These good, gray men with careful phraseology and
elliptical sentiments are the hope of mankind. When politicians dither
and markets act irrationally these mavens of monetary price-fixing will
get the job done.
A central banker is looking to lead the Greek unity government – which
is unified with the efficiency of a shotgun marriage – and now Der
Spiegel, Germany's leading elite mouthpiece, informs us that consensus
is "growing" to have the IMF and ECB "play a greater role." What a
And whose consensus is that? We guess Germans are standing on street
corners all stolidly agreeing that the IMF and ECB must have their way.
Considering that increased ECB involvement (and money printing) is
anathema to Germans, we wonder how the top men at Der Spiegel actually
"Consider the contrasts
between the old and new immigration. Where the total of immigrants in
the "Great Wave" from 1890 to 1920 numbered 15 to 20 million, today
there are 40 million here.
In 1924, the United States declared a timeout on all immigration. But
for almost half a century since 1965, there has been no timeout. One to
2 million more immigrants, legal and illegal, arrive every year.
Where the old immigrants all came from Europe, the new are
overwhelmingly people of color. But America has never had the same
success in assimilating peoples of color.
The Indians we fought for centuries live on reservations. And if we did
not succeed with a few million Native Americans, what makes us think we
will succeed in assimilating 135 million Hispanics who will be here in
2050, scores of millions of Indian ancestry?
We have encountered immense difficulty, including a civil war, to bring
black Americans, who have been here longer than any immigrant group,
into full participation in our society.
This was a failing that the last two generations have invested immense
effort and enormous wealth to correct. But we cannot deny the difficulty
of the problem when, 50 years after the civil rights revolution, one yet
hears daily the accusation of "racist!" on our TV channels and in our
Ought we not first solve the problem of fully integrating people of
color, before bringing in tens of millions more?
Another factor is faith. After several generations, Catholics and Jews
melded with the Protestant majority. But Muslims come from a
civilization that has never accepted Christian equality.
The world's largest religion now, with 1.5 billion believers, Islam is
growing in numbers, strength and militancy, even as Muslim fanatics
engage in eradicating Christianity from Nigeria to Ethiopia to Sudan to
Egypt to Iraq to Pakistan.
Is it wise to bring millions more into our country at such a time?
Will that advance national unity and social peace? Has it done so in the
Turkish enclaves of Berlin, the banlieues of Paris, Londonistan or
Here, again, are but a few of the differences between the old and new
Today's numbers are twice as large. Where the old immigration stopped
after 30 years, ours never ends.
Where the old immigrants were Europeans, today's are Third World people
who have never been fully assimilated by any Western country. Where
those arrived from Christian nations, many of today's come from a
civilization that battled Christianity for 1,000 years.
Where Western powers ruled the world in 1920, today the West is aging
and dying, and much of the world is on fire with anti-white and
anti-Western resentment of 500 years of European domination.
In 1920, Western people were nearly one-third of mankind. Today, Western
man is down to one-sixth of the world's population, shrinking to
one-eighth by 2050, and not a tenth by century's end."

"The current national unemployment
rate is 9.0%. But when you focus in on black workers, joblessness jumps to
15.1%. Focus the lens even tighter, on urban areas hit the hardest by the
recession, and you find black unemployment has recently attained Great
Depression-era levels: 18% in Cleveland, 19% in Charlotte, 25% in Detroit, 22%
in Milwaukee. [Black workers lose good jobs to free trade, By William Lucy,
Cleveland Plain Dealer, August 13, 2011] Not coincidentally, these cities are
also meccas for low-wage immigrant workers.
Had black employment grown at the same rate as Hispanic employment since
January 2009, 750,000 more blacks would be working today, and black
unemployment would be 10.9% instead of 15.1%. Do the same calculation for
whites and you find 6.5 million more of them employed and their unemployment
rate 2.8% instead of 8.0%.
An immigration moratorium would help achieve both outcomes.
Obama’s election supposedly ushered in a “post-racial” America. But racial
employment patterns under his administration show what can only be called
"Pearce is a Mormon as
well, but in a substantially Mormon district Lewis stressed his
religious identity as a reason to vote for him. In so doing, he
exploited the willingness of the Left to suddenly discover and deeply
respect religion when it comes to illegal immigration, while holding it
irrelevant or offensive when it comes to gay marriage, abortion, or a
host of other issues.
Additionally, the Church of Latter Day Saints, much like the Catholic
Church and even some evangelicals, seems to be compensating for its
Political Incorrectness on homosexualityand abortion by doubling down on
mass illegal immigration as a divine commandment."
Conservatives, both Establishment and grassroots, lose because
they don’t want to win.
"MUAMMAR QADDAFI was adept
at negotiating with Tuareg nomads in the Sahara and created alliances
with many of their clans. Hundreds of Tuareg fighters stood by him as
his regime fought a losing battle for survival. Now they are going back
to the desert regions of Chad, Mali and Niger, possibly bringing a host
of problems with them."
"The worst offender is Qatar,
according to several Tripoli-based diplomats. The small Gulf state was
instrumental in arming the rebels. Earlier this year it sent hundreds of
weapons shipments and military advisers to Libya and lobbied hard for
international intervention. Not surprisingly, the Qataris are revered among
Libyans. All over Tripoli, squares and districts have been renamed in their
honour. Yet the Qataris are now supporting the political ambitions of
hand-picked leaders and commanders, undermining attempts to form a unified
military command. Some members of the National Transitional Council are
seething. They say even during the war the Qataris bypassed them, sending
weapons directly to favoured units at the front. To a lesser extent some
Western powers are also pushing their own men or models."
All too friendly
Parts of the new establishment are
worried when they see foreign powers giving selective backing to...
"Why would Israel attack
now when, for some of the reasons above, it has previously stayed its
hand? There are several possible answers. The first is that Iran is
rapidly moving centrifuges to its once-secret site at Fordow, buried
deep inside a mountain and possibly invulnerable to attack by
conventional weapons. Second, Syria’s internal chaos may take Iran’s
most important regional ally out of the game. Third, the departure of
American forces from Iraq removes both a focus for Iranian retaliation
and a constraint on America. Fourth, if Messrs Netanyahu and Barak
reckon that they need America’s military might to complete what they
start, there may be no better combination to ensure that than a
politically weak president whose Republican opponents have made
unquestioning support for Israel a wedge issue a year before a
"If all goes to plan,
America will take big steps towards this goal at an upcoming summit
hosted by the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN) on the
Indonesian island of Bali on November 17th-19th.
The ten-member regional grouping will first be holding its own
heads-of-state summit on Bali. But their annual shindig will be
overshadowed by President Barack Obama’s planned attendance immediately
afterwards at the East Asia Summit (EAS), a body to which the United
States will formally accede. The EAS was founded six years ago as a
diplomatic extension of ASEAN, and includes other countries, such as
Australia, China and India, that have interests in the Asia-Pacific.
America’s accession will be momentous for everyone, argues Robin Bush,
the optimistic head of the Asia Foundation in Jakarta, because it
ensures America a permanent place at the forum where the region’s future
will be shaped.
American diplomats claim this is reward for Mr Obama’s economic and
diplomatic investment in the ASEAN region, America’s fourth-largest
overseas market. The United States appointed a special envoy to ASEAN,
based in Jakarta, signed the ASEAN Treaty of Amity and Co-operation, and
has taken part in the ASEAN Regional Forum, a security talking-shop.
America has long had close relations with countries like Thailand, the
Philippines and Singapore (which are all treaty allies). But in recent
years it has also worked on improving ties with countries that have in
the past antagonised it.
It has forged what Mrs Clinton calls a “new partnership” with Indonesia,
the giant of South-East Asia and the world’s most populous
majority-Muslim country. This has even meant a resumption of training
Indonesia’s controversial special forces, accused of past human-rights
abuses in East Timor, West Papua and Aceh. The rapprochement with
Vietnam has deepened, both economically and politically: in 2010 the USS
George Washington was the first American aircraft-carrier to visit the
country since the end of the Vietnam war. This year America even
appointed a special envoy to Myanmar, a country it had previously
Meanwhile, ASEAN countries have become increasingly keen for America to
come closer, if only as a balance against a rising China. The past
couple of years have seen increasing regional tensions, for example in
the sea lanes of the South China Sea. Several ASEAN nations dispute
ownership of islands with China, and China’s preparedness to assert its
claims with aggressive warnings and even a bit of gunboat diplomacy has
worried smaller neighbours, notably Vietnam and the Philippines. As well
as presumed mineral riches under the sea bed, the sea lanes are a vital
route for shipping.
Balancing Chinese ambitions is also partly why ASEAN has been keen to
draw other powers, including Japan, Australia, India and Russia, into
its summitry. The association is far too polite to speak so frankly. It
talks instead of a new policy to maintain a “dynamic equilibrium” in the
region, a term coined by the Indonesian foreign minister, Marty
Natalegawa. Above all, ASEAN hopes that America will be in a better
position to help keep the peace in the South China Sea.
As interests converge between America and ASEAN, ambitions grow. One
American think-tank, the Centre for Strategic and International Studies,
urges America to move quickly towards negotiating a United States-ASEAN

"THE American president is
bringing a new—or at least rewarmed—cause to the Asia-Pacific region:
free trade. Barack Obama recently signed a ground-breaking free-trade
agreement (FTA) with South Korea, after years of Washington
foot-dragging. He signed FTAs with Colombia and Panama on the same day.
On November 12th-13th the president hosts an Asia-Pacific trade jamboree
in Honolulu which, he seems to hope, will give momentum to the idea of a
remarkably ambitious free-trade zone at just the time when global trade
talks are going nowhere.
Mr Obama’s plans hang on negotiations for a little-known but rather
liberal trade grouping, called the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
These will take place on the sidelines of the annual summit of APEC
(Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation), a gathering long famed for its
waffling. Currently, TPP members number only four small economies:
Brunei, Chile, New Zealand and Singapore. But over the past year
America, Australia, Malaysia, Peru and Vietnam have made progress in
talks to join the club.
Were America a member, its trade with its eight fellow TPP members would
amount to little more than 5% of all its foreign trade. But some quietly
hope that the TPP will serve as a “docking station” for an APEC-wide
free-trade area. That would further move the global centre of economic
gravity from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific."
Dreams and realities
THE American president is bringing
a new—or at least rewarmed—cause to the Asia-Pacific region:
"MOST Americans have not
heard of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a free-trade area of
countries dotted around the Pacific Ocean. They will soon. This weekend
it has suddenly emerged as the most promising trade liberalisation
initiative since the Doha round of world-trade talks stalled in 2008. On
November 11th, Japan, the world’s third-largest economy, announced its
intention to join America and eight other countries in negotiating what
its advocates hope will emerge as the new gold standard for free trade
in the world’s most dynamic economic zone. Reuters reports that if the
ten-country deal is concluded, it will cover a market 40% bigger than
the European Union. The news has electrified the summit of Asia-Pacific
Exporting Countries (APEC) convening in Honolulu this weekend. President
Barack Obama, who acts as the meeting’s host, hopes the TPP will be the
cornerstone of an APEC-wide free-trade area. With the euro zone in
shambles, that would further shift the world’s centre of economic
gravity from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific.
There are plenty of reasons for the mood of celebration. After less than
three months in office, Yoshihiko Noda, Japan’s prime minister, has made
one of his country’s boldest policy decisions in years, which could
unleash a chain reaction of reforms in the moribund national economy.
His decision may spur other big economies, such as Canada, to make
renewed efforts to join the negotiations, which currently include
America, Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru,
Singapore and Vietnam. If America and Japan can pull off such a deal,
the TPP could challenge China’s own free-trade push in the region, which
revolves around the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN),
South Korea and Japan, rather than the Pacific Rim. By joining with
America, Japan also hopes to influence global technological standards in
industries like electric cars and clean energy, rather than having those
heavily swayed by China."
Opening up the Pacific
MOST Americans have not heard of
the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a free-trade area of
"By 2050, on current
trends, the United States will no longer have a white majority. The
Latino share of the population will double from 15% to 30%, and the
share of African- and Asian-Americans will grow from 19% to 24%, so
turning America’s minorities into a proportion of just over half by the
middle of the century. Since minorities vote disproportionately Democrat
(80% voted for Mr Obama in 2008), that is bad long-term news for the
Grand Old Party unless their preferences change.
If you slice the population by age and occupation, the prospects for the
Republicans look no better. By the end of the decade 90m voters will be
so-called “millennials” (roughly, the generation born between 1978 and
2000), almost four out of ten. In 2008 this cohort supported Mr Obama by
66% to 32%. Mr Obama also scooped up a handsome majority of the votes of
unmarried and college-educated women, white college graduates with
“professional” careers, and religiously unaffiliated or “secular”
voters. One thin...
"Italy has fewer foreign
debts than the other troubled euro-zone countries, as it ran only modest
current-account deficits in the boom years. Its net international debt
(what Italy’s businesses, householders and government owe to foreigners,
less the foreign assets they own) was 24% of GDP in 2010, not much above
that of Britain or America, and well below the position in Greece (96%),
Portugal (107%) or Spain (90%). Indeed Italy’s overall private-sector
debts are modest by rich-country standards. This matters for the
nation’s solvency. If less wealth goes outside Italy to service foreign
debts, more is left to tax."

"The supreme irony of our
current situation is that it came about in a secular age not because of
a lack of faith but because of too much faith in the wrong things. Faith
in the market as a self-correcting system. Faith in the securitization
of risk, as if you could eliminate uncertainty by paying someone else to
carry it on your behalf. Faith in regulatory authorities to rid the
world of sin. Faith in the combination of the market and technology to
generate ceaseless economic growth.
Someone somewhere should have remembered the lesson of the world’s first
economist, Joseph in the book of Genesis, who first taught the theory of

"In fact, however, Ziada's
"new" ideas meld perfectly with the standard Palestinian mindset. In an
October 2011 poll by Nabil Kukali's Palestinian Center for Public

"Our definition of
censorship is the subtle yet constant and sophisticated manipulation of
reality in our mass media outlets. Basically, decisions as to what
subjects are included in the corporate media (or any other media for
that matter), or not included, is media censorship at work. We focus on
news censorship; of course, there are other forms of censorship in life
that are not our focal point which are also important. But, we state,
"... censorship refers to the intentional non-inclusion of a news story
– or piece of a news story – based on anything other than a desire to
tell the truth." Simply put, censorship takes many insidious guises
outside of outright redaction or cutting room floor antics. Censorship
uses framing, sleighting of content, attacking, labeling, false
balancing and more (as political scientist and former PC judge Dr.
Michael Parenti has pointed out in many books).
Certainly, private entities can be and are involved in censorship,
evident in that definition. When one compares those news stories that
reported by various media outlets and those omitted, there is often
glaring inconsistency. If we look at the patterns of these inclusions
and omissions it often becomes quite clear that it depends on who owns
or significantly financially sponsors these outlets, and what entities
influence that decision."
"The world should
understand that there is a new Israeli phenomenon: most Israelis have
moved to the left when it comes to the peace process and are ready for
compromise even if, for tactical reasons, they vote for the right. A
majority of Israelis would support a two-state deal if it included a
Palestinian state that recognized Israel as what it is, a Jewish state,
and the Palestinian right of return was limited to the new Palestine,
while the Jewish right of return was limited to Israel proper. They do
not believe that Abbas is ready at this point to accept this."
"Consider the following from mortgage
analyst Mark Hanson:
On US totals, if you figure average house prices use conforming loan balances,
then a repeat buyer has to have roughly 10 percent down to buy in addition to
the 6 percent Realtor fee to sell. Thus, the effective negative equity target
would be 85%. You also have to factor in secondary financing, which most
measures leave out.
Based on that, over 50 percent of all mortgaged households in the US are
effectively underwater — unable to sell for enough to pay a Realtor and put a
down payment on a new purchase without coming out of pocket. Because repeat
buyers have always carried the market as the foundation, this is why demand
has not come back. It's as if half the potential buyers in America died over a
two-year period of time."

Before that, McWilliams tells us, Lenihan had learned everything he knew
about finance from a biography of Alan Greenspan(!) that he had picked
up over the summer. We learn that Lenihan had no idea that Irish banks
were in trouble until after the failure of Lehman Brothers just two days
Less than two weeks after that late-night cram session at McWilliams'
kitchen table, Ireland announced to the world that it would fully
guarantee its banks liabilities -- for both depositors and bondholders.
We now know that this hasty decision would lead to national bankruptcy
and the specter of sovereign default. But at the time, Lenihan -- not
unlike a number of other clueless politicians scattered throughout the
formerly industrialized world -- was only following the advice being
offered by the "experts" who surrounded him. Shockingly, among those
"experts" were none other than a team of advisors from Merrill Lynch."

proof of an Iranian nuclear threat — even though weapons-grade uranium

"Take the postmodern-day
institution known as "sexual harassment," and its latest manifestation
in the ongoing scandal swirling around GOP presidential candidate Herman
Cain. For all of the sound and fury surrounding Cain's "Grope-gate,"
there's really not much going on here that we haven't witnessed before.
The notion of sexual harassment was first widely broadcast to the public
via our cultural commissars way back in the day, when Anita Hill
publically accused Clarence Thomas of inappropriately regaling her with
hearwarming stories of pubic hair on Coke cans and porn stars named Long
Dong Silver. Because Thomas was a conservative Supreme Court judicial
candidate, and Hill wished to derail his nomination, the latter
naturally became the darling of liberals across the country, who
proclaimed their righteousness and solidarity with the oppressed by
plastering their cars with "I Believe Anita Hill" bumper stickers.
However, when a certain left-leaning president was accused of much more
nefariously lecherous, even violent, deeds by numerous female underlings
and acquaintences just a few years later, we found out (surprse,
surprise!) that liberals tend to care more about politics than
principle. Thus, in the waning years of the nifty nineties, we were
treated to the smelly spectacle of the Democrat party and its supporters
eschewing all of their Anita Hill-era concerns and avidly whoring
themselves out to big-pimpin' daddy Clinton. These same jokers who
wanted Thomas's balding head on a platter for allegedly making tasteless
jokes to a co-worker now insisted that we give the prez a pass for
allegedly feeling up Kathleen Willey, exposing his penis to Paula Jones,
and raping Juanita Broaddrick, since to do otherwise would mean letting
the odious Newt Gingrich and the evil Republicans have a poltical

if you want the exact GPS coordinates, the breadcrumbs lead straight to
“David Axelrod’s apartment building at 505 North Lake Shore Drive,”
where “Cain’s latest accuser, Sharon Bialekhe” resided."

article below entitled "The
purpose for presenting our Daily News section"
Sadly to say, we
take no pleasure in stating that some of the items we post are not from what we
would call true "Christian" organizations. But we post it because it provides
another side of the proverbial story.
after all, is
supposed to be a temple
for sick souls (sinners) without distinction
between their worse sins or otherwise, but it seems to some organizations that
they say much about others, but fail and refuse to upbraid themselves and their
members for their own sins...)

The purpose for presenting this Daily News section:
Daily News is very important to those who are true Orthodox Catholic Christians.
For without knowing or gaining information for understanding about what is
happening in one's local area and around the world, you could find
yourself faced with denied services in the secular area, lack of income, even
(although it sounds far-fetched) ability to worship openly for the time is not
far off when all will have to decide if they wish to follow the Anti-Christ
through the One World Church and One World Government as prophesied by the
Apocalypse, the Book of Revelation of St. John or follow the faith delivered
once and for all which will cause for many to be denied the abilities to survive
under those kind of conditions, causing for one to consider other options.
Many of those who subscribe to, and some who have caused or are the cause for,
these things to happen are involved in or with the Roman Jurisdiction of the
Catholic Church (which is not the seat of all things "Catholic") as well as its
protestant daughters such as the cultic Jehovah's Witnesses, the Pentecostal
Churches, the Church of Latter Day Saints also known as the Mormon Church and
far too many more to list.
Yet, at this web site we do provide some of the reasons about why they are
opined to be the harbingers of that which is prophesied in Holy Scripture for
the bringing about of the End Times which we have already entered. It is
not necessarily their individual members or parishioners that should be blamed
since they are only the "Sheep" and not the Shepherds... So do not think we
castigate individual people of themselves as we castigate those "money changers"
who Jesus Christ chased out of His Father's House as the Bible Describes; for
they exist in these present times too.
Events are already rushing toward
that time in which this is beginning to happen and will become more fully
wide-spread. In these present times all you need to really do is look around
both your local and larger areas as to what is really on-going through.
Things so very little or miniscule that they are barely noticeable except to the
more informed observer may become apparent.
little things are the laws of the land, economics, politics, the degrading and
erosion of those rights and liberties afforded by the Constitution of these
United States of America and many other things such as the manner with which
entertainments have taken over much of the populace, entering into and becoming
a major focus in worship, and more.
We ask you,
if you don't want to believe us... Have you heard, seen or found what is termed
(of the many terms being used) that there are "holding areas" or "camps" or
"Closed/Fenced communities" being built by GOVERNMENT?
North America, especially in the United States of America, we must admit that
what Russia has come out of (a communistic, atheist country) we are entering
into. And one last thing that needs also to be understood... Something
very important to those of you who are "Catholic" in the Roman sense of its
jurisdiction.... And, we believe this also holds true for many who
are "Orthodox" whether "Eastern" or "Western"....
altering the Life and Teachings of
to accommodate the disease of Political
Jurisdiction (Latin Church = Vatican) of the Catholic Church)
breaking of - or failure and refusal to respect and abide by - the ancient
which leaves everything else open to God's gift of creativity... failure &
refusal to abide by and have respect for those who diligently protect one of the
other Pillars of the Church, the
but "Non-Denominational" also includes worshiping Satan's religion of
Islam by praying with them and other
such as 'Pentecostalism,'
any so-called church with "Community
in their nomenclature
and others who by their
false and misleading dogmas and doctrines
are actually against the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ upon whom and for
exacting reason we are called "Christian" in both spirit and truth from which
non-denominational protestant sectarian claimants have departed from as being
skilled spiritual father can help you!
cannot ride two horses or serve two masters for one of them will be harmed by
your thoughts, your very words and your actions which is to blaspheme the Holy
Ghost (Spirit) who will depart from you. And when the Holy Spirit departs,
the great deceiver (unbeknownst to you) will rush in to fill the void under
disguise of being the Holy Spirit! Testing of the Holy Spirit to insure it
is the Holy Spirit does not, for many a Sectarian Protestant and Roman, work
because the Great Deceiver (Satan) is most skilled in worming and snaking his
charms around your mind and heart to feign being the Holy Spirit.
Remember, Satan has the same gifts similar to the Holy Spirit but Satan's gifts
are UN-HOLY and lead all who accept him (unbeknownst to you) to perdition.
