Remember the divinity of Scripture as you read the following quotes, and consider that they are not predictions, but God observing what He knows from outside of time. He tells us so we can be ready and know what to look for:
Apocalypse 13:7: "And it was given unto him [the dragon] to make war with the saints, and to overcome them. And power was given him over every tribe, and people, and tongue, and nation."
Apocalypse 18:1-5: "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen […] Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins…"
The primacy of authority of St. Peter and his legitimate successors, as taught by Scripture and the Early Church Fathers, has already been discussed. It is important to understand and believe this dogma in order to fully grasp the scope of this chapter. It is further relevant to note the following dogmatic decree on infallibility issued by Pope Pius IX at the close Vatican Council in 1870.
Pope Pius IX, Vatican Council, 1870, ex cathedra: “Therefore, faithfully adhering to the tradition received from the beginning of the Christian faith, to the glory of God our savior, for the exaltation of the Catholic religion and for the salvation of the Christian people, with the approval of the Sacred Council, we teach and define as a divinely revealed dogma that when the Roman Pontiff speaks EX CATHEDRA, that is, when, in the exercise of his office as shepherd and teacher of all Christians, in virtue of his supreme apostolic authority, he defines a doctrine concerning faith or morals to be held by the whole Church, he possesses, by the divine assistance promised to him in blessed Peter, that infallibility which the divine Redeemer willed his Church to enjoy in defining doctrine concerning faith or morals. Therefore, such definitions of the Roman Pontiff are of themselves, and not by the consent of the Church, irreformable.”
This definition is important to know and understand when dealing with the issue of the counterfeit church. God the Holy Ghost speaks through the Holy Roman Pontiff when he utters such decrees, and we know that in these matters he is protected from making any errors in matters of faith and morals when teaching in virtue of his apostolic authority with the intent to bind all the faithful to obedience to and belief in his decrees. Keep this in mind when reading the following quotes from valid Catholic popes:
Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, 1441, ex cathedra: "Therefore the Holy Roman Church condemns, reproves, anathematizes …whoever holds opposing or contrary views."
Why is the Church so severe? Because anybody who believes contrary to the Church believes contrary to the very teachings of God, who’s Church She is. It is very important to keep doctrine pure, so as not to offend God by giving Him lip service only. We must say, “Yes Lord, I believe ALL that Thou hast taught.” Remember, Christ came to earth to establish this Church so that we may attain salvation through Her and only Her.
Pope Leo X, Fifth Lateran Council, Session 8, 1513: "And since truth cannot contradict truth, we define that every statement contrary to the enlightened truth of the faith is totally false… We decree that all those who cling to erroneous statements of this kind… should be avoided in every way and punished as detestable and odious heretics and infidels…"
Understanding that the Holy Ghost does not allow popes to exercise their infallibility to speak anything contrary to the Truth, we must now find out what they have infallibly defined about those who hold opposing, erroneous views.
Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, Cantate Domino, 1442, ex cathedra: “…all those who are outside the catholic church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatics, cannot share in eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels, unless they are joined to the catholic church before the end of their lives.”
Pope Eugene, speaking with the God given charism of infallibility, tells us some of the types of people who are outside the Church, and this includes heretics. So what exactly is a heretic? A heretic is someone who does not have the Divine and Catholic Faith, a person who denies teachings that all Catholics must believe.
Pope Pius IX, Vatican Council, Session 3, Chapter 3, Paragraph 8, AD 1870, ex cathedra: “Wherefore, by divine and Catholic faith all those things are to be believed which are contained in the word of God as found in Scripture and tradition, and which are proposed by the Church as matters to be believed as divinely revealed, whether by her solemn judgment or in her ordinary and universal magisterium.”
So a heretic is a person who obstinately denies any teaching contained Scripture and Tradition, and those which are proposed by the Church’s Solemn Magisterium or Ordinary and Universal Magisterium. When we put all these decrees together, we see that despite being validly baptized, a Catholic who adopts a heretical opinion and retains it even though they have been admonished, ceases to be Catholic, ceases to be a member of the Church. Now we must know what our conduct should be in the presence of such people and fortunately for us, God has already revealed to us what that is to be.
Titus 3:10-11: “A man that is a heretic, after the first and second admonition, avoid: Knowing that he, that is such an one, is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned by his own judgment.”
2 John 1:10: “If any man come to you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into the house nor say to him, God speed you.”
A ‘priest’ or ‘bishop’ who appears to be a heretic in the public forum, if he has not proven his Catholicity by denouncing the heresy he appears to hold, is to be considered as a heretic and outside of the Church. He is a person who is not Catholic, and one who is outside the Church cannot hold office in the Church, pure and simple. If it is seen that the person was a heretic before they appeared to hold office, then they never validly held office at all, but merely usurped it, and in reality, the office would be vacant, until a Catholic were to take possession of it.
This is exactly what has happened. At one point in history there was a Catholic pope, who, after his death, was not succeeded by another Catholic pope. Instead, a man usurped the papacy, being in reality a heretic, a ravening wolf in the clothing of sheep. Once this horrible precedent had occurred, there was no turning back, and for almost a century now, we have had heretical antipope after heretical antipope.
The Case against Leo XIII (and Pius X)
The Case against Benedict XV
The Case against Pius XI
The Case against Pius XII
Since Leo XIII was a manifest heretic, even before his "election", each of the successive antipopes have been non-Catholics as a result of their schismatic for their adherence to the line of antipopes. A pope cannot come from a line of antipopes any more than an Eastern Schismatic "Orthodox" Bishop can be elected to the Holy See. For this reason among others, it is correct to assert that all of the successors Benedict XV have been antipopes. Their names are Pius XI, Pius XII, John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul I, John Paul II and Benedict XVI. Each of these men, additionally to being schismatic for willingly following an antipope, explicitly taught heretical doctrines, performed manifest acts of heresy or apostasy, instituted disciplinary teachings (not binding on Catholics, since they were not popes remember) that would lead people to doubt or renounce their faith, and some of these men did all of the above! We jump ahead nearly a century from Benedict XV to see what the current antipope has been up to in order to prove himself a heretic:
Heretic antipope Benedict XVI (writing before his antipapacy, as Joseph ‘Cardinal’ Ratzinger): The Jewish People and their Sacred Scriptures in the Christian Bible, 2001: “Judaism necessarily involves an implicit acceptance of all its presuppositions… which exclude faith in Jesus as Messias and Son of God… Christians can and ought to admit that the Jewish reading of the Bible is a possible one.”
This is obvious apostasy and an insult to our Lord! It a denial of the Divinity of the Lord Jesus Christ, by saying that Christians ought to admit the possibility that the Jews are right! The Jews are wrong! The Old Testament clearly predicts Jesus Christ, and only the blind are unable to see it! There are many other examples that could be given but this suffices to demonstrate that he is not Catholic and not the pope, but an antipope.
Today, correctly believing that there is no pope in the Holy See, is to believe a position, which is called sedevacantism. This is from the Latin, which means the chair (sede) is vacant (vacante), that is to say, the chair of St. Peter. One cannot be a Catholic and believe that a heretic sits validly in the chair of St. Peter. To believe that such a man is Catholic renders a person heretical, for denial of the Council of Florence, which states that heretics are outside the Church, among other infallible decrees. To worship with in communion with these men or people who accept them is contrary to constant Catholic Tradition. Don’t do it.
Sedevacantists believe the incredible, that is, that almost the whole world has been deceived by satan and his antipopes, however those who are aware of the heresies of these false teachers, and still accept them as true popes believe the impossible! That the gates of hell can prevail against the Church!
St. Matthew 16:18: “And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”
Pope Vigilius Second Council of Constantinople, ex cathedra: “…we bear in mind what was promised about the holy church and him who said that the gates of hell will not prevail against it (by these we understand the death-dealing tongues of heretics)…”
St. Francis De Sales, Doctor of the Church, The Catholic Controversy (p. 305-306), 17th Century: "Now when he [the Pope] is explicitly a heretic, he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church…"
St. Antoninus, 1459: "In the case in which the pope would become a heretic, he would find himself, by that fact alone and without any other sentence, separated from the Church. A head separated from a body cannot, as long as it remains separated, be head of the same body from which it was cut off. A pope who would be separated from the Church by heresy, therefore, would by that very fact itself cease to be head of the Church. He could not be a heretic and remain pope, because, since he is outside of the Church, he cannot possess the keys of the Church."
There are some who argue against the sedevacantist position, attempting to state that if the Church has no pope or no visible hierarchy that it would cease to exist and that for this reason the position must be false. It should be noted that the four marks of the Church do not include visibility. These four marks are as follows:
ONE (Romans 12:5: “So we being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.”)
HOLY (Ephesians 5:25-26: “Husbands, love your wives, as Christ also loved the church, and delivered himself up for it: That he might sanctify it, cleansing it by the laver of water in the word of life.”)
CATHOLIC ([from the Greek katholikos, meaning universal] St. Matthew 28:19-20: “Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world.”)
APOSTOLIC (Ephesians 2:19-20: “Now therefore you are no more strangers and foreigners; but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and the domestics of God, Built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone.”)
These marks of the Church have been infallibly declared in the Solemn Magisterium.
First Council of Constantinople, AD 381: “We believe… in one, holy, catholic and apostolic church.”
Another argument, which needs to be properly refuted, is that the Vatican Council infallibly defined that there would be popes forever until the end of time. They quote the following decrees from the Vatican Council:
Pope Pius IX, Vatican Council, Chapter 2. On the permanence of the primacy of blessed Peter in the Roman pontiff, paragraph 1, ex cathedra: "That which our lord Jesus Christ, the prince of shepherds and great shepherd of the sheep, established in the blessed apostle Peter, for the continual salvation and permanent benefit of the Church, must of necessity remain for ever, by Christ's authority, in the Church which, founded as it is upon a rock, will stand firm until the end of time"
Pope Pius IX, Vatican Council, Chapter 2. On the permanence of the primacy of blessed Peter in the Roman pontiff, paragraph 5, ex cathedra: "Therefore, if anyone says that it is not by the institution of Christ the Lord himself (that is to say, by divine law) that blessed Peter should have perpetual successors in the primacy over the whole Church; or that the Roman Pontiff is not the successor of blessed Peter in this primacy: let him be anathema."
Opponents of the sedevacantist position like to quote paragraphs 1 and 5 and state that these infallible declarations render the sedevacantist position impossible. They assert that it means the Church will never be without a pope. History is against them and reveals the absurdity of their position. The historical list of dozens of antipopes aside, there have been hundreds of periods of varying length when the Church has in fact been without a pope. These intervals are called interregnums, occurring between the death of one pontiff and the election of the next, and the Church has never defined a maximum amount of time that such an interregnum can occupy.
How does the infallibility of the above quotes remain intact? Simple. They do not mean that every single moment that the Church exists she must have a pope, nor that a pope must be present until the end of time. If it were to mean this then the only way we can reconcile this with infallibility is to assert that every time a Pontiff dies, the Church ceases to exist until a new one is elected. Absurd.
Paragraph 1 states that what was established in St. Peter must of necessity remain until the end of time. This is true whether we have a pope or not. The popes' infallible teachings, having been declared and archived, are truly available to every person, though with varying degrees of effort required. These infallible truths, have indeed remained, so even though we do not have a pope, we certainly have available to us what was established in St. Peter, and that is not to say that another pope is not in the Church's future. If there is a divine will there is a way. Suffice it to say that even if we don't have a pope (as has been the case many times and for many different lengths of time) we always, always, always have the papacy and the true Faith, which it teaches, defines and upholds.
Paragraph 5 states that St. Peter SHOULD have perpetual successors. It means exactly what it says, that by divine institution, St. Peter and his legitimate successors all enjoy the same power and primacy over the Church, and that it is forbidden to suppose that St. Peter was the only one to whom Christ gave this power, and that this order SHOULD never be altered. Naturally, if some claimant to the See of Peter were illegitimate, as many have been, or moreover if he denied the substance of the power of the primacy itself, he would not wield this power, even if he appeared to, since this power is derived from divine law, instituted by Christ.
The Bull Cum Ex Apostolatus Officio of Pope Paul IV is authoritative confirmation of this, explicitly asserting that heretics elected to the papacy are not elected at all and that all ‘papal’ their actions are null and void.
Remember, to 'interpret' a dogmatic decree to mean anything that challenges another dogmatic decree's infallibility means that it is being 'interpreted' wrongly. For example, we know that it is a dogma that heretics are outside of the Church (Council of Florence, 1439: All those outside the Church... heretics, schismatics, etc.), so how can a pope be outside the Church, yet a head of the same thing he is detached from? Unless we deny that heretics are outside the Church.
Then, opponents of sedevacantism, in a last ditch effort to get us to subject ourselves to their heretic antipopes, will quote the following infallible decree:
Pope Boniface VIII, Unam Sanctam, 1302, ex cathedra: “Furthermore, we declare, we proclaim, we define that it is absolutely necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject to the Roman Pontiff.”
Unam Sanctum means that a person must be subject to the pope, but it doesn't necessarily mean the person of the pope but the office of the pope. Otherwise St. Vincent Ferrer was a schismatic, since he was unknowingly subject to the Avignon line of antipopes. He is not reckoned as a schismatic, since he was willing to submit to the person of the pope, and though he made a mistake and chose the wrong one, he still obediently accepted the authority of the office of the papacy and did his best to submit to it. The reason he can be excused is because there was no way to know that the Avignon antipopes were antipopes, since they were not heretical, like the antipopes since Benedict XV and the Vatican II antipopes.
Note that Apostolic is one of the marks of the Church, but this does not mean that there must always be successors to the Apostles, but rather that the Church always must follow the teachings of those successors. Today for example, since we have no pope, who would be the true successor of St. Peter, we must defer to the teachings of the true popes in history, which are available to anyone who looks for them. Only by believing and obeying the teachings of the true popes of the Holy Roman Catholic Church of the one true God, can we be truly members in the Body of Christ, the same Holy Church. Heretics, remember, are out. As long as there are people believing, obeying and professing the true Faith, there is a Catholic Church.
St. Athanasius: “Even if Catholics faithful to Tradition were reduced to a handful, they would be the true Church.”
St. Gregory Nazianzen: “Where are they who revile us for our poverty and pride themselves in their riches? They who define the Church by numbers and scorn the little flock?”
In short, it is neither a dogma, nor a logical deduction from a dogma, that there must be a living, visible hierarchy for the Church to exist and maintain Her indefectibility.
Now in case there is any doubt left in the reader’s mind as to whether or not there is indeed a counterfeit church set up in Rome, here is a side by side comparison of some major doctrines. First are listed the doctrines of the false and counterfeit church, or Vatican II sect, and the true doctrine of the Holy Catholic Church. Notice that they are exact opposites.
The Vatican II sect teaches:
Antipope Paul VI, Second Vatican Council, Dignitatis Humanae #2, 1965: “This Vatican Council declares that the human person has a right to religious freedom. This freedom means that all men are to be immune from coercion on the part of individuals or of social groups and of any human power, in such wise that no one is to be forced to act in a manner contrary to his own beliefs, whether privately or publicly, whether alone or in association with others, within due limits."
Note: This teaching speaks broadly of religious freedom, without restriction. All religions, including false ones, are to be granted the same freedom and respect, as seen by the actions of the leaders of the Vatican II sect. According to the above teaching, false religions, such as Islam, Judaism, even Satanism could not be suppressed by the state.
The Catholic Church teaches:
Pope Pius IX, Syllabus Errorum, 1864: “Hence in certain regions of Catholic name, it has been laudably sanctioned by law that men immigrating there be allowed to have public exercises of any form of worship of their own.” – CONDEMNED
Pope Pius IX, Syllabus Errorum, 1864: “In the present day it is no longer expedient that the Catholic religion should be held as the only religion of the State, to the exclusion of all other forms of worship.” -- CONDEMNED
Pope Pius IX, Syllabus Errorum, 1864: “The Church is to be separated from the state, and the state from the Church.” -- CONDEMNED
The Vatican II sect teaches:
Antipope Paul VI, Second Vatican Council, Lumen Gentium, 1964: “The order of bishops, which succeeds to the college of apostles and gives this apostolic body continued existence, is also the subject of supreme and full power over the universal Church, provided we understand this body together with its head the Roman Pontiff and never without this head.”
The Catholic Church teaches:
Pope Pius IX, Vatican Council, Session 4, chap. 1, ex cathedra: “We teach and declare that, according to the gospel evidence, a primacy of jurisdiction over the whole Church of God was immediately and directly promised to the blessed apostle Peter and conferred on him by Christ the lord…And it was to Peter alone that Jesus, after his resurrection, confided the jurisdiction of Supreme Pastor and ruler of his whole fold, saying: Feed my lambs, feed my sheep. To this absolutely manifest teaching of the Sacred Scriptures, as it has always been understood by the Catholic Church, are clearly opposed the distorted opinions of those who misrepresent the form of government which Christ the lord established in his Church and deny that Peter, in preference to the rest of the apostles, taken singly or collectively, was endowed by Christ with a true and proper primacy of jurisdiction.”
Note: Collegiality teaches that the bishops, together with the pope, share supreme authority over the Church. The Catholic Church clearly condemns this. The Catholic Church teaches that the pope (and the pope alone) has been given the keys. The pope (and the pope alone) has supreme authority over the Catholic Church.
THE BLOOD-GUILT OF ALL GENERATIONS OF JEWS
The Vatican II sect teaches:
Antipope Paul VI, Second Vatican Council, Nostra Aetate, 1965: “Although the Church is the new people of God, the Jews should not be presented as rejected or accursed by God, as if this followed from the Holy Scriptures.”
The Catholic Church teaches:
Before delving into this topic, which may be sensitive for some, understand that this applies only to people of Jewish descent who do not come to embrace the true Faith of Jesus Christ, as all men ought.
Second Council of Constantinople, Canon 10, 553 AD: “If anyone does not confess his belief that our Lord Jesus Christ, who was crucified in his human flesh, is truly God and the Lord of glory and one of the members of the holy Trinity: let him be anathema.”
Pope Clement VIII: “The Bible itself says that the Jews are an accursed people.”
1 Thessalonians 2:14-16: “For you, brethren, are become followers of the churches of God which are in Judea, in Christ Jesus: for you also have suffered the same things from your own coutrymen, even as they have from the Jews, Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and the prophets, and have persecuted us, and please not God, and are adversaries to all men; Prohibiting us to speak to the Gentiles, that they may be saved, to fill up their sins always: for the wrath of God is come upon them to the end.” (CURSED!)
1 Corinthians 16:22: “If any man love not our Lord Jesus Christ, let him be anathema (cursed)…”
St. Matthew 10:33: “But he that shall deny me before men, I will also deny before my Father who is in heaven.”
1 St. John 2:22-24: “Who is a liar, but he who denieth that Jesus is the Christ? This is Antichrist, who denieth the Father, and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father. He that confesseth the Son, hath the Father also.”
St. John 8:42-44: “Jesus therefore said to them (the Jews): If God were your Father, you would indeed love me. For from God I proceeded, and came; for I came not of myself, but he sent me… You are of your father the devil…”
St. Matthew 27:25: “And the whole people answering, said: His blood be upon us and our children.”
St. Augustine: “Their understanding of Scripture is carnal; they bear the guilt for the death of the Savior, for through their fathers they have killed Christ. The Jews held Him; the Jews insulted Him; the Jews bound Him; they crowned Him with thorns and dishonored Him by spitting upon Him; they scourged him; they heaped abuses upon Him; they hung Him upon a tree.”
St. Basil the Great: “If someone should kill the beloved son of a man, and then stretch forth their hands still stained with blood to the afflicted father, asking for fellowship, would not the blood of his son, visible on the hand of his murderer, provoke him to just anger instead? And such are the prayers of the Jews, for when they stretch forth their hands in prayer, they only remind God-the-Father of their sin against His Son. And at every stretching-forth of their hands, they only make it obvious that they are stained with the blood of Christ. For they who persevere in their blindness inherit the blood-guilt of their fathers; for they cried out: "His blood be upon us, and upon our children" (Matthew 27:25).”
It is clear, the Catholic Church not only teaches that Jews are accursed, but She tells us that it comes directly from the Holy Scriptures. There is a clear contradiction between Vatican II and the Catholic Church’s teaching. The Church Fathers are unanimous in interpreting Scriptures as teaching the Jews are cursed. Both the Council of Trent (1543-1567) and the Vatican Council (1870) declared that when reading the Scriptures, we are never to stray from the unanimous interpretation of the Church Fathers.
Council of Trent, Session 4, Decree Decree Concerning the Edition, and the use, of the Sacred Books, ex cathedra: “Furthermore, in order to restrain petulant spirits, It decrees, that no one, relying on his own skill, shall,--in matters of faith, and of morals pertaining to the edification of Christian doctrine, --wresting the sacred Scripture to his own senses, presume to interpret the said sacred Scripture contrary to that sense which holy mother Church,--whose it is to judge of the true sense and interpretation of the holy Scriptures,--hath held and doth hold; or even contrary to the unanimous consent of the Fathers; even though such interpretations were never (intended) to be at any time published.”
Vatican Council Session 3, Chapter 2, Paragraph 9, ex catehdra: “In consequence, it is not permissible for anyone to interpret Holy Scripture in a sense contrary to this, or indeed against the unanimous consent of the fathers.”
Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, Session 11, ex cathedra: "It firmly believes, professes and teaches that the legal prescriptions of the old Testament or the Mosaic law, which are divided into ceremonies, holy sacrifices and sacraments, because they were instituted to signify something in the future, although they were adequate for the divine cult of that age, once our lord Jesus Christ who was signified by them had come, came to an end and the sacraments of the new Testament had their beginning. Whoever, after the passion, places his hope in the legal prescriptions and submits himself to them as necessary for salvation and as if faith in Christ without them could not save, sins mortally."
THE MOHAMMEDANS (MUSLIMS)
The Vatican II sect teaches:
Antipope Paul VI, Second Vatican Council, Nostra Aetate, 1965: “The Church regards with esteem also the Moslems. They adore the one God, living and subsisting in Himself; merciful and all-powerful, the Creator of heaven and earth…”
The Catholic Church teaches:
Athanasian Creed: “And the Catholic Faith is this, that we worship one God in Trinity and Trinity in Unity…So the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Ghost is God. And yet they are not Three Gods, but One God…the whole Three Persons are Co-eternal together, and Co-equal.”
1 St. John 2:22-23: “Who is a liar, but he who denieth that Jesus is the Christ? This is Antichrist, who denieth the Father, and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father.”
Pope Sixtus III, Council of Ephesus, 431 AD: “If anyone dares to say that Christ was a God-bearing man and not rather God in truth…let him be anathema.”
Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, Cantate Domino, 1442: “First, then, the holy Roman church, founded on the words of our Lord and Saviour, firmly believes, professes and preaches one true God, almighty, immutable and eternal, Father, Son and holy Spirit…Most firmly it believes, professes and preaches that the one true God, Father, Son and holy Spirit, is the creator of all things that are, visible and invisible…It professes that one and the same God is the author of the old and the new Testament…since the saints of both testaments spoke under the inspiration of the same Spirit.”
Exodus 20:2-3: “I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt not have strange gods before me.”
Note: Clearly Catholics worship the Most Holy Trinity. Clearly Catholics worship Jesus Christ, Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity. The Mohammedans reject Christ and say that the Trinity is “blasphemy”. To state that the Mohammedans (who explicitly reject and condemn Christ and the Trinity) actually worship the true God is blasphemy and apostasy. To reject Christ is to reject the God the Father. To reject the God of the New Testament is to reject the God of the Old Testament. To worship a god contrary to that of the New Testament is to worship a false god, which is forbidden by the First Commandment. This statement from Vatican II constitutes apostasy. It is an implicit, yet unequivocal, denial of Christ and the Trinity.
The Vatican II sect teaches:
Antipope Paul VI, Second Vatican Council, Lumen Gentium, 1964: "But the plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator. In the first place amongst these there are the Mohammedans, who, professing to hold the faith of Abraham, along with us adore the one and merciful God, who on the last day will judge mankind."
The Catholic Church teaches:
St. John 5:22: “For neither doth the Father judge any man, but hath given all judgment to the Son.”
Pope St. Leo IX, Congratulamur Vehementer, 1053: “I believe also that the Son of God the Father, the Word of God, was born eternally before all time from the Father…He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father…He will come to judge the living and the dead…”
Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, Bull of Union with the Copts, 1442, ex cathedra: “It firmly believes, professes and preaches that the Son of God was truly born of the virgin in his assumed humanity, truly suffered, truly died and was buried, truly rose from the dead, ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father and will come at the end of time to judge the living and the dead. It anathematizes, execrates and condemns every heresy that is tainted with the contrary.”
Pope Damasus I, Council of Rome, Canon 15, 382 AD, ex cathedra: “If anyone does not say that He (Jesus Christ…will come to judge the living and the dead, he is a heretic.”
Note: It could not possibly be more clear. It is a dogma that Jesus Christ will be our Judge on the Last Day. The Mohammedans reject Jesus Christ. The Mohammedans don’t worship Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is not their God. So how then can the God of the Mohammedans judge us on the Last Day? This is heresy because it is a denial of the dogma that Christ will be our Judge.
PRAYING WITH NON-CATHOLICS
The Vatican II sect teaches:
Antipope Paul VI, Second Vatican Council, Unitatis Redintegratio, 1964: “In certain special circumstances, such as in prayer services “for unity” and during ecumenical gatherings, it is allowable, indeed desirable, that Catholics should join in prayer with their separate brethren...the gaining of needed grace sometimes commends.”
The Catholic Church teaches:
Third Council of Constantinople: “If any ecclesiastic or layman shall go into the synagogue of the Jews or the meeting-houses of the heretics to join in prayer with them, let them be deposed and deprived of communion. If any bishop or priest or deacon shall join in prayer with heretics, let him be suspended from communion.”
Council of Carthage: “One must neither pray nor sing psalms with heretics, and whosoever shall communicate with those who are cut off from the communion of the Church, whether clergy or layman, let him be excommunicated.”
Council of Laodicea: “No one shall pray in common with heretics and schismatics.”
There are many other heresies contained in the documents of this apostate council which were not mentioned in this exposé, such as the evolution of dogma, the notion that the Holy Scriptures can err, the notion that public revelation did not end with the death of the last apostle, the encouragement of praying with heretics and schismatics, a denial of the unity of the Catholic Church, the notion that heretics and schismatics are joined to the Catholic Church, etc.
The men behind this false Council were heretics, since they directly contradict the infallible teaching authority of the Catholic Church. Just one heresy is proof that Vatican II was a non-Catholic council. Just one heresy is sufficient evidence for any honest and good-willed person who truly desires to be Catholic to see that Vatican II was a break away from the Catholic Faith, and yet here we have seen eight of them.
Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, "Cantate Domino," 1441, ex cathedra: "The Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that all those who are outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatics, cannot share in eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels…"
It cannot be stressed enough, that heretics are outside the Church, they are non-Catholics and thus cannot be priests, bishops, cardinals or popes. We are all at fault for this catastrophe for not obeying God as we ought to.
2 Thessalonians 2:10: “And in all seduction of iniquity to them that perish; because they receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying:”
Many people think it is just some silly conspiracy theory, but the Scriptures tell us that it will indeed get this bad.
St. Luke 18:8: “…But yet the Son of man, when he cometh, shall he find, think you, faith on earth?”
Amos 8:11: “Behold the days come, saith the Lord, and I will send forth a famine into the land: not a famine of bread, nor a thirst of water, but of hearing the word of the Lord.”
Matthew 24:24: “For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect.”
Apocalypse 12:17: “And the dragon was angry against the woman: and went to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
Apocalypse 13:7: “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them. And power was given him over every tribe, and people, and tongue, and nation.”
So what can we do?
Apocalypse 18:3-4: “Because all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication; and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her; and the merchants of the earth have been made rich by the power of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying: Go out from her, my people; that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues.”
From the Catholic teachings contained in this article, the course of action for any person who wished to save their immortal soul from hell is clear. Go out from the false Vatican II sect and every other sect that is associated with them and that includes the SSPX, the CMRI and almost all ‘Traditional Catholic’ groups. If you are 'worshiping' in the Novus Ordo/Vatican II sect or with anybody who is in communion with them or any heretics or schismatics at all, then you are not Catholic. You need to learn the true Catholic Faith, and convert to it, or you cannot attain salvation.
