The Second Vatican Council has encouraged all Catholics to enter into dialogue. The Pope has repeatedly asked the Jesuits to establish an inter-religious dialogue, an apostolic priority in the third millennium (millennium).
Therefore, the Catholic Church says it like this: "We have a special responsibility to promote inter-religious dialogues" and "the Jesuit heritage" is "to develop a culture of dialogue in our approach to believers of other religions. This culture of dialogue should be a special characteristic of our Society."
The Jesuits are encouraged to put the order's original intentions into practice even more persistently
The Jesuits play a central role in the Catholic Church's missionary activity as they work to bring Christianity back to the Mother Church. In that connection, it is very interesting to note all the information that has been posted on the Internet in connection with Jesuit General Assembly 34 (1995). (HTTP address: web. lemoyne.edu/bucko/c34_indx .html) Never before have we noticed that they have been so open with reports from such important gatherings. Of course, it is formulated in beautiful terms, but when one knows a little about the background of the Jesuits' activities, and what their approach and goals are, their own words are very enlightening, interesting, and revealing.
No one can say that this is outdated information that has no relevance today. There is also no question that the Jesuits have now changed their intention and work plan. In the Pope's comment and approval of the report from the Jesuits' GC 34, he precisely makes a strong call that they must follow the same track as St. Ignatius, the founder of the Jesuit order, has directed. In recruiting new members to the order, they must not set the threshold too low and soften the nature of the Jesuit order.
The Pope exhorts: "Your founder insisted in plain text that no one should be admitted to the profession [as a Jesuit] without having been thoroughly formed for it... you must "not yield to the temptation to which one so easily falls; to soften this formation, which contains so much importance in all its aspects: human, spiritual, doctrinal, disciplinary and pastoral." (Appendix 1, point 8 (A1, 8))
At the General Conference, the Pope reminded the participants of the following: "You have a spirituality that is clearly marked, an unequivocal identity, and a century-long confirmation (confirmation), which was based on the authenticity of methods, which - despite having passed through the crucible of history - still bears the inscription of St. Ignatius' strong spirit. Therefore, there is absolutely no reason to doubt the fact that the renewed source of spiritual and apostolic fruitfulness must be an even deeper surrender to the path you have followed until now - to the special charism." (A1, 3)
The Pope then concludes in his commentary to the Jesuits: "Therefore do not be afraid to be even more true sons of St. Ignatius, living out to the full your original inspiration and your charism in these last days of this century, deepening your devotion to the Society of Jesus [the Jesuit community].” (Same)
The Jesuits' "new evangelization" in the second millennium
Emphasis is placed on the fact that commitment and dedication must be even greater in the new millennium. Time and again the "new evangelization" is mentioned (A1, 4, 7, 9), where the Jesuits will play a special role in "the third millennium [millennium]". The Pope says that this historic event [GC 34 of the Jesuits] is "essentially dedicated to discovering the specific contribution your Institution is called to make to the new evangelization on the threshold of the third millennium, as well as to update the internal organization of the Society of Jesus and legislation so that it can provide an even more faithful and effective service for the Church." (A1, 2)
Then the Pope suggests some points that they should follow so that they can do even better" defining their contribution to the Church's evangelizing mission in our contemporary world, especially with a view to the "Great Jubilee" in the year 2000, where a new spring in Christian life will be revealed..." (A1, 2)
The unity of all Christians
One of the points the Pope emphasizes is "the unity of all Christians" (A1, 5). The Pope points out that he has already emphasized this in a previous apostolic letter entitled Tertio Millennio Adveniente. There he writes, among other things, a. the following: "As we approach the new millennium, the Church asks the Lord - as one of the most fervent pleas at this special event _ that the unity among all Christians of all denominations must increase so that it can lead to the goal of full communion [communion].” (Same)
The Jesuits must be at the forefront to break down independent tendencies and create universal unity
After quoting from this pastoral letter, the Pope concludes: "In this great struggle the whole Church must find the [Jesuit] Society as vanguard. Resisting every temptation towards individualism, independence or parallelism, the Society is called to give a stirring witness to fraternal unity and ecclesiastical harmony. The efforts the Society has devoted to cooperation in every branch of the Church's life are well known. In this context, I encourage you to keep alive this fundamental expression of your charism as you serve the universal Church and overcome every temptation to provincialism, regionalism, or isolation that may threaten the very existence of certain international and inter-provincial works, which are of great significance for the universal Church...” (Same). Independence must disappear, and everything must conform to an international pattern.
How will they then achieve their desired goal?
Ecumenical endeavors, with the main emphasis on entering into dialogue with other religions and denominations, is the answer:
“The Second Vatican Council has encouraged all Catholics to enter into dialogue... so that we can unite. .. The Holy Father has repeatedly asked the Jesuits to establish an inter-religious dialogue, an apostolic priority in the third millennium (second millennium).. it seems that dialogue develops the unifying and liberating potential of all religions ..." (Decree 5, item 130 (D5, 130)) "...Interreligious dialogues are an integrating element of the Jesuits' mission..." (D5, 137)
"We have a special responsibility to promote interreligious dialogues » (D5, 154), they say. Yes, "this culture of dialogue should become the special characteristic of our [Jesuit] Society"(same), they say. They give such a high priority to this work that they will "put together a secretariat for interreligious dialogues to promote and coordinate the Jesuits' initiatives in this area. The secretariat must be able to help ensure that training programs for Jesuits are organized with a view to wider involvement in dialogues." (D5, 155)
Dialogue with Jews, Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists
It is not only the other "Christian" denominations that the Catholic Church works to enter into dialogue with. "The dialogue with the Jewish people has a unique place", they say, and continue: "Entering into an honest and respectful union with the Jewish people is an aspect of our efforts to 'think with and in the Church.'" ( D5, 149)
They also want to enter into dialogue with the Muslims. "Both the Church and the [Jesuit] Society have striven to build bridges of mutual understanding between Christians and Muslims". (D5, 150)
The Hindus are another group that the Jesuits want to engage in dialogue with. They believe this can be an easier group to work with. Some of what they believe will open up a "fruitful dialogue" is the Hindus ' "deep meditation", "mystical perception" and "rich use of symbols". (D5, 151) See the pictures on the same page.
When it comes to the Buddhists, too, they find things that can lay a foundation for them to "join hands with them". Some of what they emphasize as positive in this respect is again "meditation, which leads to a stage of inner liberation [liberation] and spiritual enlightenment". (D5, 152)
in order to approach religious fundamentalists
is to try to apologize
for past mistakes and intolerance.
"This can pave the way for dialogue
and unification", they say...
Do we see this today?
Religious fundamentalists - a problem
The last group they mention, with whom they want to enter into dialogue, is what they call "the phenomenon of religious fundamentalism". Achieving unity with them, they admit, "involves serious difficulties". Nevertheless, they will make their attempts. The procedure may seem noble, and we see it being put into practice today: They will try to ask for forgiveness for past mistakes and intolerance towards others. "This can pave the way for dialogue and reunification", they say, and admit that "apostolic insight" is needed to be able to judge what to do in such situations. (D5, 153)
We'll add a warning about being scammed by the line they put on. It is said about the Catholic Church that when the church is in the minority, it is as gentle as a lamb. When it is level, it is as cunning as a fox. When it has the majority, it is furious like a tiger. Apparently, beautiful methods can be used, but they do not hide that their ultimate goal is that the Church must ultimately be the winning party... Then, as they say, themselves, they must carefully consider what methods they should use to achieve this goal.
Different types of dialogues
There are different aspects that must be emphasized in the dialogues with other denominations and religions. Two of the essential points are as follows:
*" The dialogue of religious experience, where people, who are grounded in their own religious traditions, share their spiritual riches, for example when it comes to prayer and considerations, faith and paths in which one searches for God or an Absolute."
* " The dialogue of theological exchange, where specialists try to deepen their understanding of each other's religious heritage and to appreciate each other's spiritual values." (D5, 131)
The hidden purpose: To bring all denominations back to the "Mother Church"
Can you see how the Protestant denominations imitate the Catholic Church's plan to bring about unity among Christians? Initially, it may look so plausible. People are connected by exchanging spiritual experiences and joining together in the service of prayer. - We have one common goal, it is claimed, to present Christ to the world which is on the brink of a crisis. But despite all the beautiful words and seemingly good intentions (and some of those who join such associations may in reality also have honest and good intentions), there is a smart and insidious strategy behind it all: To bring all religions back to the Mother Church. Therefore, we must be on our guard, so that we too are not deceived!
The basis of true Christian unity
We are not against unity. In His last exhortation to His disciples, Jesus asked His followers to be one. But notice on what basis the unity was to be formed: “Sanctify them in Thy truth! Your word is the truth... I pray that they may all be one, as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us..." (Jn. 17. 17- 21)
This is a completely different unity from the unity that the Catholic Church tries to promote, and which the Protestant denominations also follow in their new dialogue models, preacher rings, and ecumenical joint events. You can have a good time together and feel a community as long as you only exchange your views, but conclude that you have the most important thing in common. The tolerance limit today is large, and no one objects if you have a different opinion, as long as you state that "this is one of many paths - my path, the one I enjoy... but another path might suit you. .. as long as we have Jesus in common, we work towards the same goal."
But is it so? Is Jesus a name, which we can define what it stands for, or is Jesus teaching, a character - the Truth? We cannot adopt Jesus according to our wishes, our will, and our opinion. Our opinion, will, and desire must adapt to Him so that our character and teaching come to resemble Him more and more until we reach the full Truth. -And we find the truth expressed in His words, which we just read. That is what we are to be sanctified by, and that must be the basis of true Christian unity!
Infiltration and global network work
In order to achieve "greater cooperation and efficiency", there are two aspects in particular that we notice that the Jesuits will emphasize:
Infiltration [twinning] (D21, 448)
Global networking (D21, 446)
The Jesuits emphasize that they need close cooperation among themselves to achieve their goals. Through the networks they create between people and institutions, they will, among other things, be able to capture information that they can pass on to other parts of society. They also emphasize this when it comes to their work in inter-religious dialogues. On this front, they will divide the work into two responsibility groups: those who participate in the dialogues, and those who pass on the outcome of the dialogues to those in the Jesuit community who are engaged in other parts of the work. (D5, 148)
But the network also takes place on another level. In particular, mention is made of 'networks in university departments, research centers, school journals, and in regional defense groups. Potential is also present for cooperation by and through international forces, non-governmental organizations, and other new associations of men and women of goodwill. Initiative and support for these different forms of networks should come from all parts of society...' (D5, 446)
Total obedience to the Church
In addition to the close connection, coordination, and strong cooperation between the brothers in the Society, they have great devotion, total obedience, and submission to "the superiors". The Jesuits are asked to carry out the apostolic mission to which they are called: "To carry out any task that the Church may ask of them." (D6, 165) This also comes from the Pope with strong calls for: "As you follow in the footsteps of your Founder and his first collaborators, with the gesture of loyalty to the work of the Roman Pontiff, you declare that the Society is total and without reservation of the Church, in the Church, and for the Church.” (A1, 1)
The Jesuit order - still one of the main elements of the Jesuit order
In his commentary on the Jesuits' GC34, the Pope wants to emphasize what were the two main elements St. Ignatius emphasized in the formation of the Jesuit community: "The priesthood and the oath of obedience given by the initiates to the Supreme Pontiff". (A5, the Pope's 2nd letter)
It is very interesting to see that this is still emphasized so strongly. So one cannot in any way say that the Jesuit tradition has lost its relevance. No, in the documents that are now being published, the emphasis is rather that the basic intentions, methods, and laws must be implemented even more effectively: "Therefore, the need is not for any new legislation, but for the existing legislation to be implemented even more effectively in life." (D12, 329)
In this connection, we will include a part of the Jesuit oath. It should make everyone wake up to the true aim and mission of the Jesuits. Here it comes.
"My son, you have already been taught to behave like a hypocrite: To be a Catholic among Catholics, and to be a spy even among your own brothers - to believe no man, to trust no man. To be a Reformed among the Reformed, to be a Huguenot among the Huguenots, to be a Calvinist among Calvinists. Among the Protestants - generally, be one of them! Earn their trust, and even try to speak from their pulpits.
Maintain with the full vehemence of your nature our holy religion and the Pope. Debase yourself even so low as to become a Jew among the Jews, that you may be able to gather together all the information that may be useful to your order, as a faithful soldier of the Pope. You have been taught to insidiously plant the seeds of jealousy and hatred between states that were once at peace, and incite them to blood deeds, engaging them in war with one another, and creating revolutions and civil wars in societies, provinces, and countries which were independent and prosperous, and cultivated arts and sciences, and enjoyed the blessings of peace.
Take sides with the champions secretly, in consultation with your fellow Jesuit brother ... who may be involved on the other side, and openly go against the side with which you are connected _ so that the Church may ultimately be the winning party, in the conditions laid down in the peace treatises, and that the end justifies the means.
" You have been trained for your duty as a spy, to gather all the statistics, facts, and information in your power from all sources. To ingratiate yourself into the confidence of the family circle of the Protestants and heretics of every class and character, as well as to the merchant, the banker, the lawyer, and among schools and universities - in parliament, and legislative assemblies, with the authorities and ministers - to "be all things to all men", for the cause of the Pope, whose servants you are until death.
" As a novice and a new convert, you have already received all instruction, and have served as a helper, confessor, and priest, but you have not yet been equipped with all that is necessary to be a commander of Loyola's army in the service of the Pope. You must serve the sufficient time as an instrument and practitioner as you have been told by your superiors - for no one can command here who has not yet consecrated his work with the blood of a heretic - "for without blood being shed there is no remission" Therefore, in order for you to be fit for the work and for your salvation to be secured, you must, in addition to your previous oath of obedience to your order and fidelity to the Pope, repeat after me:
" I,__________, now in the presence of Almighty God, the Blessed Virgin Mary, the blessed Archangel Michael, the blessed St. John the Baptist, the Holy Father, the Superior General of the Society of Jesus, founded by St. Ignatius Loyola, under Paul III's pontificate, which has continued to this time, I declare and swear by the womb of the Virgin, the womb of God, and by the scepter of Jesus, that His Holiness the Pope is the Viceroy of Christ, and is the true and only head of the Catholic Universal Church or Universal Church throughout the whole earth, and that by virtue of the bond and release were given to His Holiness by my Saviour, Jesus Christ, he has the power to depose heathen kings, princes, states, communities, and governments, all of which are unlawful without his holy approval, and that they can be safely destroyed.
" I further declare that I will aid and assist and advise all or any of His Holiness' agents in whatever place I shall be and that I will do my utmost to extirpate the heretical Protestant or liberal doctrines and to destroy all their alleged powers, whether lawful or not.
" I further promise and declare that if I have been given the role of assuming one of the heretical religions, to advance the interests of the Mother Church, I will keep secret and private all the counsels of her agents, as they shall from time to time instruct me, and not to reveal it directly or indirectly, by word, writing, under any circumstances, but I will put into action everything that is proposed for which I shall take responsibility, or that is revealed to me by you, my spiritual father ...
" I further promise and declare that I will have no opinion or will of my own, or any mental reservation whatsoever, not even as a corpse or a cadaver (perinde ac cadaver), but will unhesitatingly obey every order I will receive from my superior in the army of the Pope and Jesus Christ.
" That I will go to any part of the world, without complaint, and will be submissive in all things that are told me ... I further promise and declare that I will, when the occasion arises, begin to wage merciless war, secret or openly, against all heretics, protestants, or liberals, as I am directed to do, to exterminate and blot them out from the face of the earth, and I will spare neither sex, age, nor condition. I will hang, destroy, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics - tear open their bellies and the wombs of their women and smash their children's heads against the wall, to annihilate forever their abominable race.
" When the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, strangler, dagger's steel, or leaden bullet, without regard to the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of that person or persons, regardless of their state in life, whether public or privately, when at any time I am directed to do so by any agent of the Pope or superior of the brotherhood of the holy faith of the Society of Jesus.
(Can be found in the Congressional Record, USA, 15 February 1913, pp. 3215-6. Also in "The Engineer Corps of Hell" by Edwin A. Sherman. p. 118, 1883, Library of Congress Catalog Card # 66-43354).
The Jesuits' objective is clear, but as I said, it is often hidden under a cover of apparently good intentions. Outwardly, the Jesuits stand out as those who are concerned with helping the poor, providing education to children and youth, getting involved in the environment, peace work, etc. But it is made clear that their welfare work "must never be detached from the global service of the evangelizing mission The church has.” (A1, 7)
When it comes to environmental problems, war, and division in the world, they also see that they can use these points to gain benefits for the Catholic Church. - These are concerns of a global nature, they say, and therefore we must stand together to solve these problems globally. (D21, 434)
The Jesuits work for the integration of immigrants
They have created a separate sub-department specifically dealing with immigration: the Jesuit Refugee Service. (JRS). This organization works with refugees in various countries. They work to integrate refugees into new countries and cultures/religions.
On 30 November 1999, the European Parliament held a hearing on this issue, and in that connection, the JRS in Europe joined with Catholic representatives and bishops to make the following call: "...From the Church's long experience in welcoming refugees and emigrants, we understand that emigration is an opportunity for cultural, social and economic enrichment of our society.
We ask the European Union to adopt a positive approach to emigration...individuals in need of protection are entitled to EU territory... As members of civil society - and as Europeans and Christians - we ask the European Parliament to be a defense for those most threatened by persecution, violence, poverty, and lack of freedom.

It seems that this with immigration is also favored by the leaders of the Catholic Church. Now we are also not in any way opposed to helping those in need, but we must not cooperate with the Catholic Church in their strategy of mixing the peoples, so that the Protestant nations no longer preserve their distinctive character, but that the whole world becomes a single large international unit, with the common economy, politics - and not least religion - under the principles of the Catholic Church.
The Protestant and independent nations should really have the right to have their Protestant freedom, but it appears that the Jesuits are now in the process of getting their men and women into decision-making positions worldwide and that their goal is being fulfilled little by little, namely to destroy Protestantism and the independent nations.
We must not forget the slogan ORDO AB CHAO - order out of chaos. It is those in power who create chaos, in order to get an order in their own way. There are many indications that the movement of people is a part of this whole order of internationalization. (Ap.gj. 17. 26+27)
Political, economic, social, cultural _ and religious globalization
The Jesuits are pleased to see that stronger ties are now being forged in the political, economic, social, and cultural areas. They note that nations that were once divided are now "forming new supranational economic and political structures", and think it a shame if this union cannot also take place in the religious area. (D12, 326)
November 11, 1999, was a busy day for the Jesuits. On this day, they welcomed 220 of Brussels' young professionals in the French Movement of Christian Executives (MCC). They were together for three days, and during those days they debated and conferred about the situation in Europe. After prayer and conversations, it is concluded that "they understood that the construction of the European Union is not only an economic construction but a new way of thinking on our continent, including all the countries that are candidates.
They discovered a new dimension of their nation - a European dimension." "For us it was valuable", say the Jesuits."We understood once again how it will be completely different to get to see for ourselves if we want to understand the methods and reasons for building a new Europe." (Http://www.catholic.se/jesuit - click on applicable.)
The Jesuits realized that the
The Jesuits emphasize education
Finally, we will look at a branch of the Jesuits' work, to which they attach great importance to Education. They have been involved on this front ever since the Society's early beginnings. "St. Ignatius was aware of the great cultural influence of the universities and chose to send the Jesuits there, as a place where they would universally achieve even more good.” (D17, 404) The Jesuits' emphasis on education is described as "very important" since it can provide "a solid academic and religious foundation in the early years when one is formed". (D18, 418)
Their influence in this area can bring great benefits to "the goal we hope for", as they put it. (D18, 417) "In and through the universities, important debates take place that deal with ethics, the future direction in terms of economics and politics..." (D17, 405) They want precisely to get their men and women into social life in the decision-making bodies, which are helping to shape society's future: "They train their students as 'men and women for others who can take on leadership roles in their own societies and organizations." (D18, 419)
We learn that "over the last thirty years, Jesuit higher education has gone through a very rapid development in size, scope and more participatory structures in government." Perhaps especially in the USA, Jesuit universities have gained a lot of traction, and many of the important and influential people in social life are educated here. Bill Clinton himself is educated at a Jesuit university, Georgetown University, and as a child, he was educated by nuns.
Nevertheless, the Jesuits are afraid that they will not be able to retain the control they want over their universities so they are their "own" universities in the full sense of the word. (D17, 407) In the face of this challenge, the Jesuits are encouraged to work hard to "keep and even strengthen the special character of each of our institutions..." . (D17, 408).
They emphasize maintaining and strengthening their "original Jesuit identity and mission in all universities that assume the name Jesuit, or any university that originally operates under our responsibility." (D17, 410) In order to be able to retain their distinctive character at the educational institutions, emphasis is placed on the fact that those in leading positions must have been sufficiently trained in"Ignatius' charisma and pedagogy". (D18, 417)
The following information from point 405 of decree 17, from Catholic sources, says a little about the extent of the Jesuits' educational work: "Today there are around 3,000 Jesuits who work in almost 200 of our own institutions that have to do with higher education. They have their influence on more than half a million students".
But it is not only in their own universities that the Jesuits work: "Other Jesuits carry out this mission in other universities. This apostolic activity not only has an influence on the lives of the students, it permeates the entire university environment.” (D17, 405) "[Jesuit] Society's Education Secretariat should encourage such programs elsewhere _ they can be of great benefit to the goal we wish to achieve." (D18, 417)
We must inform and warn!
As we see how this system takes hold, it is important that we do not just sit with our hands in our laps and let it take its course. We don't think we can stop it, but seeing the great dangers associated with it and how cunningly the plans are carried out, it is important that revealing information comes out, which can help us and others see these things in the right light. There are certainly many honest and sincere people who have entered this and similar systems with noble intentions. We need to help them understand the dangers.
It is quite obvious that "the initiates" and their leaders do not want. They admit this openly: "We must be very vigilant, so that the faithful are not confused by questionable teachings, by publications or speeches that clearly deviate from the Church's teaching on faith and morals, or by any attitude that hurts/offends the community in the Spirit.” (A1, 6) Therefore, they clearly dislike very strong material that reveals their tactics.
But should we withhold revealing material for that reason? No, it is not true love for them that makes us do that. The Bible says: "Come out of her My people, that you may not be partakers of her sins, and that you may not receive any of her plagues." (Ap. 18. 4) The Bible tells in clear terms that those who support Skjøgen and her falsehoods will be hit by the criminal judgments the Bible mentions.
Instead of adopting the Jesuits' plan for unity, by entering into dialogue with them, we should in love help call them out of the false system of which they are a part. Clear and unambiguous information must come out so that people are put to vote. "Son of man, I have made you a watchman... You will hear words from My mouth, and then you will warn them from Me..." (Ezek. 3. 17)
Let us stand together to bring out this message of warning, well combined with God's gracious message of salvation. Then we will help show the world what they should turn away from, and what they should turn to!
CHURCH COMMUNITIES UNITE WITH ROME
Many Protestants have for a long time explaining the Catholic involvement in the ecumenical movement. Now the Catholic Church has got such a strong grip on this movement that they are now putting their cards on the table. They have quite deliberately, especially since the Second Vatican Council, gradually brought about a change of attitude towards the Protestant camp.
From then on, those heretics were called separated brothers, and it is these brothers who have been separated from the Catholic Church who they believe should now return to the "MOTHER CHURCH". They therefore now openly admit that the Jesuits have a special task to create dialogues between the denominations, to gradually lead them back to ROME.
Ecumenical affiliations in recent years
The strategy begins to work - yes, so quickly that one can almost lose one's breath. An agreement on church communion has been concluded between Lutherans and Anglicans (1996), between Lutherans and Methodists (1997), between Lutherans and the Reformed (1999), between the Catholic Church and the Lutheran Churches (1999), Anglican approach in the papal question (1999), communion between Lutherans and Anglicans, etc.
These are just a few milestones in the ecumenical picture. And in this ecumenical jubilee year, we will see that the denominations almost melt for the Catholic, ecumenical unity efforts.
The trump cards: Sunday and Holy Communion
Nidaros Domprost, Knut Andersen, writes in Adresseavisa on 21 February. 2000, that: "The aim of the ecumenical movement must be to make the Lord's Supper common to all. That is that everyone can go to communion with everyone. Then we will indeed be many denominations, but we will be one church."
General Secretary Milan Opocebsky of the World Alliance of Reformed Churches supports a proposal by General Secretary Konrad Raiser of the World Council of Churches to establish a universal church council in the year 2000. The purpose is that the major Christian denominations can come to an agreement on the issues that divide them. In these efforts for ecumenical unity, it is quite clear that the Eucharist will become one of the most unifying factors in bringing about an ecumenical unity between the denominations. From the Internet pages of the Catholic Church they say that: "The year 2000 will be an intensive Eucharistic year."
As most people now know, the Catholic Church proclaims that when the priest blesses the bread (the Eucharist) during the Eucharist, it literally becomes the body of Jesus. They sacrifice or kill Jesus again every time they eat the bread (the Eucharist). This is an abomination because the Bible says that Jesus was sacrificed once and for all and that the Lord's Supper should be a reminder that Jesus gave his life for us, to save us. (1. Cor. 11. 23-26).
In the Pope's pastoral letter of May 31, 1998, Dies Domini (Lord's Day), the Pope encourages the individual to have Catholic Communion every Sunday. Here we see that the Pope points out two factors that are very important for the papacy to achieve ecumenical unity, namely
1. Sunday as a rest day
2nd Catholic Communion
Both of these institutions are unbiblical. We have already described the Catholic communion as unbiblical, and anyone can read their own Bible and see that it is the biblical seventh day, the Sabbath, from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday, which we should have as a day of rest, and not the first day of the week, Sunday. (1. Mos. 2.1-3; Luk. 23. 50-56; Matt. 5.17-18; 1. Jn. 5. 2-3). An account of this is made in the treaty "FREEDOM IN DANGER", or as it was previously called "Watch out for the Sunday laws and the mark of the beast". Anyone who dares and wants to bring up this subject for discussion can be sent this material and any other material on the subject if there is interest in it.
Unity on all levels
We see that the papacy is seducing the whole world through its global strategy. We see the same trend in the Catholic European Union. First, they have bound the nations together on the economic plane, then on the political plane, now also on the military plane, and finally what they are striving for now, to bind the denominations together also on the religious plane. It is probably the last item that is the most important for the Catholic Church, but it comes as a trump card in the end.
The other posts have helped to hide the real purpose of the papacy, therefore the Bible says that the whole world was amazed to follow the beast (the papacy).. and further "they were led astray by the sorcery of the harlot (the papacy). The Bible says that there will only be a remnant left of God's people, they will have the patience of the saints, keep God's commandments, and have the faith of Jesus. (Rev. 14.12).
Divide and Conquer
In the course of this newsletter, we have seen some of the Jesuits' strategies. The motto of this movement has been: "The end justifies the means", and in the wake of this we see the divide-and-conquer rules applied. Therefore, the best and most effective way to destroy a church is to destroy it from within, and that is what is happening in the Protestant camp today. When Protestantism is about to be destroyed, it is gradually replaced by Catholic features. Do we see that development today? Let's take an example:
1. Børre Knutsen (dismissed priest in the Lutheran Church) is in favor of introducing the so-called "key power", where the priest can forgive sins. These are Catholic features and have no root in the teachings of Christ. If, for example, I have stolen a satellite dish from a person, I should not go to the priest to confess my sin and receive his forgiveness. No, the Bible says that I should go to the person I stole the satellite dish from, and sort it out with him.
I will also present the case to God, and receive the final forgiveness there, through Jesus Christ, when I turn to Him in humility, admit my mistake, repent and ask for forgiveness for my sin. (Luke's Gospel, chapter 17, verses 3-4) It is God's Word that we must use to lose and bind.
Both the Freemasons, Børre Knutsen, and the Catholic Church encourage people to go to the priest to confess and ask the priest for forgiveness. This is Catholic and unbiblical.
2. Børre Knutsen is a great opponent of free abortion. We are also opposed to free abortion but do not support Knutsen's methods. In the 10 commandments it says that one should not kill, but why is Børre Knutsen not willing to follow all the other 9 commandments, as they are in Exodus chapter 20, verses 3-17? The Bible says that if you break one of the commandments, it is the same as breaking them all. In the 4th commandment it says that we should keep the Sabbath, the seventh day, (from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday, as the Jews and a few other denominations do), while Knutsen keeps the 1st day of the week, Sunday. It is the Catholic Church that has changed the commandments as they stand in the Catechism.
Unfortunately, the Lutheran Church has accepted the Catholic commandment falsification in its catechism. There they have removed the text which says that it is God who is the lawgiver. Subsequently, they have made themselves legislators and changed God's Ten Commandments on several points, including the Sabbath commandment. They have made a fake. When Børre Knutsen presents himself as a representative of God, why does he refer to the falsified commandments and not to the ten commandments? And why does he claim one commandment and break another?
The Catholic Church is also on paper opposed to free abortion, and Father Pollestad from the Catholic Church and Børre Knutsen meet here. Although it is a Biblical right to be against free abortion, it seems that through his opposition to abortion, Børre Knutsen is dragging many conservative Christians into a new Catholicization process in Norway.
3. Børre Knutsen uses Catholic symbols. One signals through symbols, and shows which connection one has. On his new bishop's robe, there is, among other things, the Mary and Jesus symbol, which is a typical Catholic symbol. At the top of his shepherd's staff is the sun symbol, with the inscription IHS on one side. The same symbol is found on the so-called eucharist (communion bread), a round biscuit that Catholics use in communion.
Some believe that the letters stand for Iesus Hominum Salvator (Jesus the Savior of Mankind), but what is known is that they were used as abbreviations for the Egyptian sun gods Isis, Horus, and Seb. The round biscuit is a symbol of Baal and the sun. It is a copy of the round sun cake turned into Baal's flesh in Babylon's religion. The sun gods required a round sun symbol. (See the book "The Two Babylons, by Alexander Hislop, p. 164).
On the other side of Børre Knutsen's shepherd's staff is the all-seeing eye. This symbol is perhaps the most debated. Knudsen believes that the eye at the top "reminds us of the supervisory authority, that one should be a kind of eye for God" (Dagen 9 April 1997). What is known is that this symbol is often used together with occult symbols, e.g. in a pyramid, where the all-seeing eye is located at the top of the pyramid. It is unfortunate to use a symbol that is also used in occult and Catholic contexts.
One does not create symbol patterns randomly. Symbols mean something special. All three of these symbols that Børre Knutsen has on his bishop's robe and in his shepherd's staff are Catholic symbols.
4. During the signing ceremony in Kautokeino on 6 April 1997, we also noticed that Peter Bayerhaus came and placed the apostolic succession on Børre Knutsen's head. The apostolic succession is one of the main pillars of the Catholic Church. They believe that Peter was the first Pope, and then his successors should receive this recognition when they are installed in their office.
There is apostasy and liberalization in the Norwegian Church. Børre Knutsen & Co want a new course in the Norwegian Church. Time will tell if Knutsen deliberately tries to bring the State Church back to the Mother Church, but it seems that it is going in the wrong direction - a Catholic direction.
It is such and similar features that we must be aware of because today there is an alley Catholicization on many levels, also here in Norway.
All the characteristics of Skjøgen in the Bible fit the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church also calls itself the MOTHER CHURCH. The Bible calls it the mother of harlots. ( Rev. 17. 5). Skjøgedötrene are the denominations that form alliances with Skjøgen and follow Skjøgen's unbiblical teachings and traditions. The harlots can also engage in spiritual adultery with each other through unbiblical joint church decisions. We repeat the Bible's clear message in this regard: "Get out of her (the HARLOT) my people, so that you will not share in her sins, and so that you will not receive any of her plagues." (Rev. 18.4).
A little earlier in the Book of Revelation, John, inspired by the Holy Spirit, writes that the "dragon" (a picture of Satan), the "beast" (all the Bible's characteristics of the "beast" fit the papal power, therefore Luther said: The Pope bears the characteristics of the Antichrist), and "the false prophet” (apostate Protestantism) will come together in the end times. The Bible says that devil spirits are behind this alliance. (Rev. 16. 13-14). We are beginning to see this alliance in practice today, not least through the joint declaration between the Lutheran Churches and the Catholic Church. The Lutheran Churches have truly become harlots. It's sad, but it's a fact.
We don't always know the motives
We want to make it absolutely clear that the purpose of this information is not to slander and judge the people who are engaged in the ecumenical work. Everyone has to make their choice in this matter as well. But we have tried to clarify which forces are behind the ecumenical dialogues, what such work at the church level leads to, and what consequences participating in this will have - from a Biblical point of view.
We are all susceptible to being seduced, but when we see the matter as a whole from a Biblical perspective, we will understand in prayer to God what conclusion we should take. May the individual be responsive to the guidance in God's Word. Then we will be led onto the path that leads to eternal life - and not be deceived and go astray.
There is no doubt that people engaged in this ecumenical work have certain Catholic intentions, but we believe that there are also honest and sincere people from both camps who have noble motives for participating in this ecumenical work. They (we) do not always see the forces that work in secret, behind the scenes. We, therefore, hope that those who read this newsletter can see the connection in a Biblical light, break free from the ecumenical ties, and fully preach the clear truths of the Bible.
When the Bible gives us clear instructions to go out of Babylon (papal power and apostate Protestantism), then it is foolish for priests to defy this warning and enter Babylon, through this ecumenical work. First, these priests set a bad example to the people, and they expose themselves to deception.
Open conversations with individuals
We are not against talking to people of different beliefs. On the contrary. We are encouraged to be open to everyone and to use opportunities to lead people to Christ through open conversations with individuals and with a straight message of salvation, but not to mix with the organized denominations that have given in to the apostasy. Several Protestant ministers may think they can win Catholics and liberal Protestants over to their message, but history shows that mixing with error easily leads to:
1. That one himself will little by little let go of his clear Biblical preaching - not least the message to go out from Babylon.
2. Little by little become like those you live with.
May the individual who has left their lives in God's hand, ask for eye salve and help from God to see the cunning and seduction of the ecumenical movement, and distance themselves from this movement. May everyone - with God's help - tear themselves away from the ecumenical tree, and be complete branches of Christ's tree. (John 15. 3-4)
God's children are called to be different from Catholicism and apostate Protestantism. They are called to preach a message of salvation and a message of warning as presented in the 14th Chapter of the Book of Revelation verses 6-12. The next newsletter will, among other things, revolve around that message.
Unity in Christ
Let us bet on Jesus Christ as our authority, and not on the great church councils. They work for ecumenical unity, which is far from unity in Christ. Ecumenism is cooperation and unity despite different Biblical positions that lead to the wrong direction, while unity in Christ gives freedom and eternal life. (2 Cor. 3.17 and John 17.3)
We see the Bible's end-time prophecies being fulfilled right before our eyes. In this situation, the appeal is given to us to prepare for the soon return of Jesus. We must get to know Jesus, and - with God's help - come into harmony with God's will. (Acts 5.32 and Heb. 5.9).
