In my new book “NOTHING is…” I wrote the following this morning:
…And this in turn helps to explain how so many people unknowingly worship the MIND, thinking they are worshiping God. The greatest example of this would be the present Pope at the Vatican, who says that compromise with evil is OK, as long as one is attempting to help godless people feel good about their worship of the MIND, and that doing so is OK, if what one is seeking is a universal inclusion of all people … even though the Bible prohibits this!
The fact that the Bible specifically warns against doing this… is simply ignored by the Pope. And imagine… the Bible warning against this was offered over 2,000 years ago!
1 Peter 4:3
For the time that is past suffices for doing what the Gentiles want to do, living in sensuality, passions, drunkenness, orgies, drinking parties, and lawless idolatry.
1 Thessalonians 1:9
For they themselves report concerning us the kind of reception we had among you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God,
In vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’
“‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’”
Those who pay regard to vain idols forsake their hope of steadfast love.
I am the Lord; that is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to carved idols.
The idols of the nations are silver and gold, the work of human hands. They have mouths, but do not speak; they have eyes, but do not see; they have ears, but do not hear, nor is there any breath in their mouths. Those who make them become like them, so do all who trust in them!
2 Kings 17:15
They despised his statutes and his covenant that he made with their fathers and the warnings that he gave them. They went after false idols and became false, and they followed the nations that were around them, concerning whom the Lord had commanded them that they should not do like them.
And there are many more such warnings in the Bible, so the wise person must assume these warnings against idolatry are serious. And of course they are, and the reason rests on the fact that life is either-or, not sort-of, or kind-of. That is, one is either focused on and attending whatever level of Conscience one’s Soul has acquired, or one is given over to ones MIND? And if one is given to ones MIND, then one is vulnerable to the negative desires of one’s MIND.
It would seem, these admonitions are of particular significance to those who are Catholic, and thus, follow the teachings of the Pope? Is the Pope unaware of these warnings in the Bible, or does the MIND of the Pope use ego, pomp, and a sense of power [self-importance], to override the warnings of the Bible?
This is no doubt a question each Catholic must ask and answer for him/herself. And in the End Time, prior to the second coming of Christ, it would seem a very important question to ask oneself?
