Truth, i. e., “the whole truth and nothing but the truth—its current counterfeit balderdash bandied around as “alternative facts” — is indeed “stranger” and more boring “than fiction.” That’s the inevitable result when one allows the minds to the mind to explore, Eve-like, the technology-enhanced landscape of fiction, fantasies, and drama instead of God’s pure truths.

The Council of Trent of 1562, Archbishop Del Fosso: How the Foundation of Roman Catholic Authority was Laid

Jesus told the religious leaders of His day: “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written:  . . . In vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandments of God, you hold the Traditions of men . . . All too well you reject the commandments of God that you may keep your Tradition . . .  Making the word of God of no effect through your Tradition which you have handed down. And many such things you do.” Mark 7: 6, 7, 9, 13, N.K.J.V.

Unbroken Apostolic Succession of the Papacy?

Unbroken Apostolic Succession of the Papacy?  

According to Webster’s Student Edition Dictionary (1976), papacy includes four things: “1. the position or authority of the pope 2. the period during which the pope rules  3. the line of succession of popes 4. the government of the Roman Catholic Church, headed by the pope.” It is important to remember these 4-point definition whenever referring to the papacy. Moreover, it is essential to remember that not one single or any particular pope is the papacy or the beast, even the president is the presidency or a senator the senate itself, etc. This would expose many false interpretations. For instance, while he was still alive, it was claimed that Pope John Paul (the first Polish pope) was the “last pope,” who was allegedly going to usher in the “New World Order” for the Church of Rome, with Gorbachev for Russia, and George Bush Sr. for America!  Read more

Heathenism Adopted by the Church during Thyatira Stage

Heathenism Adopted by the Church during Thyatira Stage

    “IN THE SIXTH CENTURY the papacy had become firmly established. Its seat of power was fixed in the imperial city, and the bishop of Rome was declared to be the head over the entire church. Paganism had given place to the papacy.  The dragon had given to the beast ‘his powerhis seat, and great authority.’ Rev. 13: 2. (see Appendix). And now began the 1260 years of papal oppression foretold in the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation (Dan. 7: 15; Rev. 13: 5-7).  Christians were forced either to yield their integrity and accept the papal ceremonies and worship, or to wear away their lives in dungeons or suffer death by the rack, the fagot, or the headsman’s axe. Now were fulfilled words of Jesus: ‘Ye shall be betrayed both by parents and brethren and kinsfolk and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for My name’s sake’ (Luke 21: 16, 17).

The Union that the Third Angel’s Message Warns of

 We wish to remind the reader of the engine that drives this column from its inception, with a quote from the first of my favorite authors:

     “The Holy Spirit’s work is to guide into all truth [John 16: 13, 7-15]. When you depend on the Word of the living God with heart, and mind, and soul, the channel of communication will be unobstructed. Deep, earnest study of the Word under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, will give you fresh manna, and the same Spirit will make its use effectual . . . Then it [the soul] will be led into all truth.” – Ellen G. White, With God at Dawn (Devotional), p. 122.

Rev. Kevin Annett, M.A., M.Div., a modern-day Martin Luther in courage, advocate for truth and  liberty, and similarly hated thus, wrote: Read more
