Romanism - Papism - A Jurisdiction and more

 Our involvement in various religious topics- which relate completely to Orthodoxy, should at no time be seen as intolerance or as some sort of hostile activity. We assure everybody concerned that we feel a deep sense of brotherhood with all our fellow men, since we are all creations of the same Good Creator! However, the well known and well sounding views about "love" that are being aimed at us "ad nauseum" by the leaders of universality and ecumenism- does not help support such ideas that would finally lead (which we also wish) to the very desired union. The solution is not for us to inattentively hide the existing differences but to note them and deal with them appropriately.
 
 
Below, a separate publication is provided which reports on some different falsehoods of Papism. Its uniqueness is in that they are enumerated by a papist archbishop! We believe it is fair to hear him and to think hard about it.

If we recognize Pope Pius 9th as infallible, then we should also recognize as infallible all his predecessors. Good! But here, honourable brothers, history raises her authentic and valid voice showing that the Popes were fallible. You may protest against what I say or deny it, whatever you wish; however I can prove it.
 
Pope Victor (192), in the beginning, had approved and endorsed "mondanism" (heresy in the 2nd century) but later condemned it. Pope Marcellin (296-303), was an idolater. He entered the temple of Estia and offered a sacrifice to the goddess. You may say that this was a case of weakness, but I respond, the lieutenant of Jesus Christ dies but does not become turncoat or apostate. Pope Liberius (358) agreed with the condemnation of Athanasius and decided to accept  Arianism with the intention of bringing about his freedom from exile and be restored to his earlier office. Pope Honorius (625) followed the monothelitism. This was proved by Father Gratry. Pope Gregory 1st (578-590) calls antichrist anyone who receives the title of Ecumenical bishop, however despite all these, Pope Bonifatius (607-608) forced the patricidal Emperor Phoca to bestow him that title. Popes Paschalius 2nd (1088-1099) and Eugene 3rd  (1145) approved duels  but were forbidden by Popes Julius 2nd (1609) and Pius 4th (1560).  Pope Eugene recognized the Synod of the Kingdom and the restoration of the use of the Holy Chalice in the Church of Bohemia. Pope Pius 2nd (1458) put an end to this privilege, and Pope Adrian 2nd (867-872), pronounced civil marriages valid. Pope Pius 7th (1800-1823) would disapprove of them and Pope Sixtus 5th (1585-1590) announced the issuing of the Holy Bible and with the famous Seal approved its reading. Pope Pius 7th disapproved those who read it. Pope Clemens 14th (1769-1774) abolished the Jesuit Order which was allowed by Pope Paul 3rd. Pope Pius 7th restored it.

From the speech of the Papist Archbishop Josip Jurai Srossmaier at the 1st Vatican Synod in 1870.

Special Instructions from apostle1.com to you the viewer:  On many of the articles and information that we post, there are links to other web sites and pages regarding News, Information, etc.  Be sure to click your "back" button in order to return to this web site... so that you can completely read the many other articles, news & information provided. 

In addition, when you have reached the end of an article, you will notice that there is much that can be viewed by clicking on an article after our "Disclaimer Notice".  We have taken the liberty to provide other information such as helps in definitions and understandings that are truly Orthodox Catholic (not of the Roman Jurisdiction of the Catholic Church)... There is much, may be (according to some) too much!  But there is never such a thing as "too much" when attempting to learn and live the life a true Christian.... For indeed if we are true Christians, we each and every one of us needs information that will enlarge , or - at least, enhance our spiritual understandings. 

We must entrust our soul into the hands of God the +Father, the +Son, and the +Holy Spirit who, as one God (the Holy Trinity) is the source of all life and abundance for us who are still in this earthly vessel.  He knows our strengths (and our weaknesses) for he gave us strength... It is our failings and sins that make us weak in spirit!  If He were to give us one dollar in conformity to our strength, we should not seek five, so as not to grow faint under the weight of having too much, so that the gift which is intended to serve to the good would not serve to the our great condemnation.  We must flee from our sinful falls not to reclusion, not to the desert, but to self reproach, to confession of our sins - to repentance! Our perplexity, our reasoning and our will - we must plunge them into the abyss of the munificence and Providence of God!

Thank You!

However... there is something else we wish to warn you about.

You who are new visitors, may wish to read a very short 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.  The Church, 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...)

 

"Never, never, never let anyone tell you that, in order to be Orthodox, you must also be eastern. The West was Orthodox for a thousand years, and her venerable liturgy is far older than any of her heresies."

- Blessed St. John Maximovitch of Shanghai and San Francisco

 

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. 

Those 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? 

Here in 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"....

[ * Non-Denominational = Synchrestic Ecumenism, Disease of Scholasticism, altering the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ to accommodate the disease of Political Correctness and CULTIC PROTESTANTISM, and the Roman Jurisdiction (Latin Church = Vatican) of the Catholic Church) breaking of - or failure and refusal to respect and abide by  - the ancient Seven Ecumenical "Do Not" Canons 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 Seals of the Confessional, but "Non-Denominational" also includes worshiping Satan's religion of Muslim, Islam by praying with them and other heretics such as 'Pentecostalism,' 'Jehovah's Witnesses,' 'Mormons,' 'Church of Christ,' any so-called church with "Community Church" 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 so-called Christian] Only a skilled spiritual father can help you!

Remember: 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.

Missionary Conversations with Protestant Sectarians

The lives of monks consist of a podvig [(spiritual struggle) exploit] of repentance and of withdrawal from the world. They flee from judging their neighbor in his moral falls, considering themselves to be sinners and the worst of all men.

But, when it is demanded of monks and other clergy, that they remain humble and indifferent to questions of faith, then do they cast off humility and obedience. It is demanded of them, by the conscience of the Church, the faith in and for the Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ that They rise up when the truth of Orthodoxy is threatened. They are supported in this by a living conscience and by a sense of responsibility for that faith for which our forebears-martyrs and confessors alike-sacrificed everything, even their very lives.  As a result we have opted to present to you the story about "Modern Day Ecumenism and its horrors" along with various links to who just a few of these Synchrestic Ecumenists are who threaten the root and branch of Christianity as exists in true Orthodox Catholic Christianity (Both Orthodox and Roman)!

The following articles and information do not necessarily reflect the attitude or beliefs of this jurisdiction or those who are with us in spirit and truth!

 

"I understand the idea of sodomy and homosexuality, but to say that homosexuality is not a sin is incorrect and not just in my mind but all of Orthodoxy and again, not just in Orthodoxy but all of Catholicism and again, not simply all of Catholicism but all of Christianity with the exception of those who have this in their personal life as sin or are very close to someone who does. Celibacy or Married Life is the ultimate ideal.  For both Homosexuality and Heterosexuality are truly sinful if... and below is the hard part of this understanding..." (Ed. Note: We have never said "homosexuality is not a sin or okay... however, there are those who, being homosexual, are that way for a variety of reasons.  Jesus Christ talked of these kinds as referring to Eunuchs.  The conversion tactics employed by many other groups, bespeaks of a "politics" that is not wholly honest either spiritually or even materially.  For, in their endeavors they have failed to show forth the truth that one is driven into a "closet" style of life.  It is better, we believe, to become wholly celibate, be it a homosexual or even heterosexual... and to learn what "celibacy" really means and requires).

 

If a man looks on a woman who is not his wife with lust, he has sinned. If he and she are married to other people he has committed adultery. If a man looks at a man with lust he has sinned the same as a man who looks at a woman. Sodomy does not have to enter into it, lust for someone is a sin by itself and must be removed. But people do this all day long to be sure but it is still a sin. To say that homosexuality and heterosexuality are not a sin due to their lusting, allows both heterosexuals and homosexuals to live in sin without repentance and this is wrong to do to them spiritually.

 

It is for the sake of their own soul that one has to recognize sin that is in them and not to excuse it regardless of the sin or the preference of the sinner. Sodomy is indeed a sin regardless of what any one may tell you, the act of attraction or the lust is a sin even without action and simply must be repented of by both heterosexuals and homosexuals. I must also add this; woe to all who misguide others into sin and especially those who are of the clergy who do this. For the sake of your own soul and others, you must recognize this and repent. I know that it is not easy to overcome and if it is never overcome then one must live a life of constant repentance, that is the only choice.
