Repent, and believe in the Gospel (Mk 1:15) – Part 5. Heresy of syncretism

Lent 2017

The First Commandment says: “I am the Lord your God… You shall have no other gods but Me. You shall not make for yourself a carved image – any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow to them nor serve them. For I am the Lord your God…” (Deu 5:6-9)

This is the foundation for the rest of the commandments of the Decalogue as well as for all the commandments of God and the whole Scripture, both of the Old and New Testaments. If the Israelites began to worship pagan idols instead of the one Lord God, they were chastised with wars and other punishments. For their so-called regard for pagan gods, involving occult practices, divination and magic, the nation was even exiled to Babylon. The prophets referred to syncretism with paganism as spiritual fornication and called for repentance. Similarly, in the New Testament, the Apostle expresses this truth: “What accord has Christ with Belial? … And what agreement has the temple of God with idols?” (2Cor 6:15-16) Idolaters and sorcerers shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire (see Rev 21:8).

Repent, and believe in the Gospel (Mk 1:15). Part 4: Conversion, personal relationship to Jesus Christ

Lent 2017

If we asked a young person, Do you want to be happy?, they would definitely say “YES!”, raising their both hands in agreement.

– But how long do you want to be happy? For a day, a week or a year? For ten or thirty years, or for all your life until your death? And do you want to be happy after death too?

Deep in his soul, man has a desire for happiness, true happiness, which no one can take from him. Only the very thought of happiness ending one day makes us sad. People search for happiness in human relationships, wealth, money, career, fame, success or in pleasures, alcohol, drugs. But they cannot find it there. They experience disillusionment, an even deeper emptiness, loneliness and pain in their soul. St Augustine expressed this desire for happiness with the words: “You have made us for Yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in You.”

Lent 2017

Every human being longs for perfect happiness, longs for God, even though one does not realize it: “You have made us for Yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in You.” (St Augustine) But there is also sin – the lie incarnate – in the heart of man. This sin causes man to search for happiness where it can never be found. Sin within us is essential self-delusion.

An example of the fruit of the lie within us: A twelve-year-old girl had to have her leg amputated above the ankle, if her life was to be saved. But her father takes her from the hospital and brings her to a “miracle” healer. His friend warns him and urges him to take the child back to the hospital lest the “healer”’s quackery should cause the girl’s death. The father takes offence and stands his ground. A few weeks later, the girl dies. However, even after 20 years the father will not hear a word against the charlatan, and what is more, he hates his good friend. Incomprehensible! This is the fruit of being under the delusion of sin! There are thousands of similar cases.

Common sense and objective truth simply do not work here!

Repent, and believe in the Gospel (Mk 1:15). Part 2: Heresies of the historical-critical method in theology

Lent 2017

Nowadays, the historical-critical method in theology (HCT) lays claim to academic exegesis of the Scripture and hence of the whole Catholic doctrine. HCT has subordinated itself neither to divine inspiration nor to Church tradition in the matters of doctrine (dogmas) and morals. It is based on atheistic philosophy, does not accept any miracle, denies the Resurrection of Christ, does not accept that Jesus is true God and true man, the only Saviour, in the way the Church has taught it for 2000 years. HCT upholds the heretical doctrine that Christ is divided into the historical Christ and the Christ of (false) faith who is said to have been imagined by the early community of believers.

Saint Basil calls at a time when the Church is being destroyed from within by the Arian heresy: “…All intelligence of those who are learned in word is filled with delusion of false or half-true assertions like an eye filled with dust.”… “All these people are struck by an incurable epidemic of crazy love for fame, so everyone wants to be higher than the other, but at the same time, in fact, their ship is sinking to terrible depths.”… “Every borderline (dogma) set by the Fathers of the Church has been moved, every foundation, every stronghold of a sound view of the true faith has been shaken

Repent, and believe in the Gospel (Mk 1:15). Part 1: Diagnosis of the times

Lent 2017

Introduction:

2017 is a historic year not only because it marks the 100th anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima’s call for repentance (as well as 100 years since the revolution in Russia) but also the 300th anniversary of the foundation of a semi-secret Satanic organization. Its aim is elimination of all moral values and global Satanization of mankind – autogenocide on earth and hell after death. What is more, today this organization makes unity with the apostate Vatican. Jesus said about the Church in connection with the office of Peter: “The gates of hell shall not prevail against it (the Church).” (Mt 16) They shall not, indeed; however, unless both Church leaders and lay believers show true repentance, the Church will continue to exist only as little flock!

In the following seven topics for Lent 2017, we present some relevant issues concerning the essence of the restoration of the Church:

1) Diagnosis of the times
2) Heresies of the historical-critical method in theology (Neo-Modernism)
3) Original sin (in Adam) and deliverance (in Christ)
4) Conversion – personal relationship to Jesus Christ
5) Heresies of syncretism
6) Vatican Council II and heresies
7) Current facts about the Pope and the papacy
