The sin nature is that aspect in man that makes him rebellious against God. When we speak of the sin nature, we refer to the fact that we have a natural inclination to sin; given the choice to do God’s will or our own, we will naturally choose to do our own thing.
- The Facts: Tomorrow, it will be decided whether or not Cardinal George Pell’s guilty verdict will be appealed. If his appeal is successful, he will be let go and the charges of sexual abuse against children will be dropped.
- Reflect On: Although awareness is being created, the most powerful people in the world and the authorities we turn to in order to stop these activities may also be implicated.
*UPDATE: Cardinal George Pell has lost his appeal
The sexual abuse of children connected to high ranking Vatican officials is nothing new. Multiple popes have been implicated or involved, including Pope Francis. For example, Carlo Maria Vigano, former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States and Secretary-General of the Governorate of Vatican City was the last one to do that. You can read more about that here. Decades of sexual abuse were reported in a choir that was led by the retired pope Benedict’s brother. It’s interesting that all of these revelations and accusations of violence, child abuse, and pedophilia coincided with the time of that pope’s resignation. You can read more about that specific case here. According to Malachi Martin, an Irish Catholic priest, writer on the Catholic Church, and Professor of Palaeography at the Vatican’s Pontifical Biblical Institute, “the incidence of Satanic pedophilia – rites and practices – was already documented among certain bishops and priests as widely dispersed as Turin, in Italy, and South Carolina, in the United States. The cultic acts of Satanic pedophilia are considered by professionals to be the culmination of the Fallen Archangel’s rites.” The list of examples is long, and the topic could fill books that deal with pedophilia, torture, murder and ritualistic abuse.

Those who fall into evil behavior usually start slowly. Paul shows the tragic progression into more and more evil in Romans 1. It starts with refusing to glorify God or give thanks to Him (Romans 1:21), and it ends with God giving them over to a “depraved mind” and allowing them to be “filled with every kind of wickedness” (verses 28–29).
Those who practice evil are in Satan’s trap and are slaves to sin: “Opponents [of the Lord’s servant] must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will” (2 Timothy 2:25–26; see also John 8:34). Only by the grace of God can we be set free.
The latest example to make public headlines is Cardinal George Pell. Pell was just convicted on five counts of child sexual abuse. He has now become the most senior official ever to be found guilty, serving as an advisor to Pope Benedict as well as Pope Francis. He’s one of the Vatican’s most powerful officials.
Who knows what Pell is really involved in, how deep his involvement goes, and what other crimes he is guilty of committing?
As HNewsWire pointed out
The jurors heard Pell sexually assaulted the two boys after Sunday solemn mass at St Patrick’s Cathedral in Melbourne in the priest’s sacristy. Pell orally raped one of the boys during this incident and indecently assaulted both of them. Pell offended a second time against one of the boys one month later, when he grabbed the boy’s genitals in a church corridor, once more after Sunday solemn mass. He was convicted on four counts of an indecent act with a child under the age of 16 and one counts of sexual penetration with a child under the age of 16. advertisement – learn more
Pell appealed the court’s decision, and if he wins he could be set free. The decision is set to be announced tomorrow. The Senior Vatican official has been in custody in Melbourne since his sentencing to 6 years in prison earlier this year in March.
Pell’s appeal was heard in June before a full bench of the supreme court including the chief justice, Anne Ferguson, the president of the court of appeal, Chris Maxwell, and Mark Weinberg. Only two of the three judges needs to agree as to whether Pell’s conviction should be overturned. (source)
The recent NXIVM case along with the Jeffrey Epstein saga has certainly brought more attention to this type of thing and how big of a problem it is within elite circles, particularly the sexual ritualistic abuse and trafficking of young women and children.
But will things change? Does it make a difference if Cardinal George Pell will be set free, or if not set free become another ‘fall guy’? Will this help stop the problem or does something grander need to happen? Does our focus need to shift away from one person onto an entire entity and organization, like the leader’s Catholic Church/Vatican? I believe it does …..
Based on my research, many high-level people are involved in this type of activity, including many whom authority figures go to in order to solve these problems. These people have amassed tremendous amounts of power and a few convictions here and there. Awareness may not be able to solve the problem, but that’s not to say it’s not a giant leap forward to share this information…
When it comes to Vatican officials, it’s quite clear that many people have been aware of this type of thing for a very long time. This is evident by many examples throughout the years, and this clip of Pell debating scientist Richard Dawkins is a great example of what I am talking about. You can see the crowds reaction when ‘little boys’ are mentioned.
The positive thing about all of the awareness and transparency that’s hitting the mainstream with regards to this type of activity is that it’s simply becoming more known. We’re talking about people that the world has been made to praise, idolize, and look up to. We are talking about people that have tremendous amounts of power and influence over political policies and major corporations that are continuing to destroy our planet and perpetuate war.
This is immoral sinful behavior, and there are many parts of our world that are a reflection of that. But things are changing, and awareness is the first step to that. We are in the process of change and uncovering the truth, and not turning a blind eye is key. Source
BLIND CHURCH GOERS
This section is not written for the liberal godless Priests /pastors. It is for those people who attend such a church and who support such a pastor. First I realize that many who follow these godless Priests /pastors are unsaved people themselves. They attend church to get their ears tickled, or for the social aspects, or for business contacts. This type of person deserves a compromising wolf type of Priests /pastor.
However, there are some of God’s people who go to churches where the priests/ pastor is of such a base character as described herein. My question to you is why do you stay there and support such a man? Your loyalty should be to the Lord Jesus first. Churches can come and go but the Lord Jesus never changes and He is totally dependable. If a Church or a Priests/ pastor is liberal and is walking far from God, then it is your duty to leave and find a good church for yourself and your family. Do not stay in such a church but search and find a good Bible-preaching church. Please listen to this advice because it is important to find somewhere where you can be blessed and grow in Christ.
Unfortunately, many of God’s people just don’t care and will stay with a bad pastor. I’ve heard the saying… ‘Sheep will just be sheep’. Here is an example of some blind doctrineless sheep. I attended a Bible study and prayer meeting while visiting a church. I heard a missionary from the congregation deny that Jesus was God. Guess what? Nobody but me cared (including the associate pastor)! I raised my hand and challenged this person while everyone silently looked on. This shocked me as I didn’t think it was possible in a ‘Christian’ church…but it happened.
For many churchgoers these verses directly apply to them:
4: For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
Many people born with quite a bit. They bear with false teachers and false doctrines. The liberal man-pleasing preacher leads people astray and many people just don’t care. They just sit in their pew and shake their heads, go home, then later come back for some more.
If you are not this type of person and the goal is to please God and to grow in Christ, I would suggest you stay away from bad pastors. Do not encourage them, do not support them, and do not attend their church. Don’t stop going to church, but find a good one with a good pastor with a heart that truly loves God.
The Catholic Church, sometimes known informally as the Roman Catholic Church, is a denomination of Christianity headquartered in Vatican City. The Catholic Church teaches the divinity of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and worships the God of Abraham. The Catholic Church has a single leader, the pope, the Bishop of Rome. The current pope is Francis. Present-day governance of the Church is divided hierarchically into dioceses, each overseen by a diocesan bishop, who in turn oversees diocesan priests and deacons on the level of the individual parish.
The word “catholic” means “universal.” Its use as a name for the Church comes from Nicene-Constantinople Creed of 381, which defines the church as, “one, holy, catholic and apostolic.” In the Christological controversy of the fourth century, Catholics opposed the heresy of Arianism.
The Church has always been pro-life and its leadership is mostly conservative, as illustrated by how it “launched a crackdown on the umbrella group that represents most of America‘s 55,000 Catholic nuns” for “a prevalence of certain radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith.” The Church noted that “the group was not speaking out strongly enough against” abortion.
Members believe that theirs is the oldest Christian denomination in the world. It is certainly the largest, with more than 1.3 billion officially baptized adherents, or 17.4% of the world’s population; over 64 million of these are in the United States. In recent years growth has been greatest in Africa and Latin America, while membership and influence have declined in Europe.
The Catholic Church asserts that the Pope is the divinely chosen successor of St. Peter, believing him to be the ‘rock’ (Matthew 16:18) upon whom Jesus built his Church. The Catholic Church consists of those Christians who are in full communion with the Pope. This includes members both of the Latin Church and of the 23 Eastern Catholic Churches. The Eastern Catholic Churches were once known as the “Uniate” Churches; though once used with pride at remaining in union with Rome after the East-West Schism, this term has fallen out of use due to derogatory connotations that have come to be associated with it over the centuries.
The Catholic Church has suffered several schisms over its history. Most notable are those involving the Church of the East following the First Ephesian Council, the Oriental Orthodox churches following the Council of Chalcedon, the Eastern Orthodox Church following the Great Schism of 1054, and the several Reformations of the 16th century leading to the development of Protestantism.
The Protestants made the most radical break. Two of the principal issues raised by Protestants were sola scriptura, the doctrine that the Bible alone is the final authority for Christians (which is also a denial of the infallibility of Sacred Tradition, the Pope, and the infallibility of ecumenical Church councils as being preserved and guided by God the Holy Spirit in ignorance of Colossians 2:8) and sola fide, the doctrine popularized by Martin Luther that faith alone, as opposed to the need for both faith and good works together, is sufficient for salvation (as is written in Ephesians 2:8-9).
Freemasonry is a secret society that was, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, politically active in numerous countries. The Catholic Church opposed Freemasonry and forbade its members to belong to Masonic lodges. The Catholic Church first condemned Freemasonry in 1738. This was partially because Masons were often aligned with popular uprisings that had the objective of replacing traditional monarchs and class privilege with national independence and voting rights. A large number of the signers of the U.S. Declaration of Independence had been Freemasons, for example. Some, though not all, of the French Revolution’s leaders, were Masons, although Robespierre was not a Mason. The Masonic role in the French Revolution was part of the reason the Catholic Church condemned Freemasonry.
The Papacy coordinated attacks against Masonry in countries such as Brazil, where the religious question in the 1870s centered on Masonry and the struggle between regalist and ultramontane forces. One method of Catholic action was to found Catholic universities. Ignace Bourget, second bishop of Montreal, Canada, founded Laval University, saying that the university would be the principal instrument for “wresting the elite from the clutches of liberalism.” At the time, political Liberalism was closely associated with national liberation and democracy.
A spiritual revolution took place in the 19th century, moving individuals to a renewed interest in personal piety. There was a new emphasis on the role of Mary and a greatly increased involvement of women in the life of the Church. The number of sisters and nuns increased from 20,000 to 400,000 between 1815 and 1914.
Camp (1990) traced the treatment of women by the Church. In the late 19th century, the papacy began to revise its public teachings about the proper role of women in the Church and society. From Pope Leo XIII (1878-1903) to Pope John Paul II (1978-2005), papal social pronouncements revealed an evolution in attitudes from the view that women are passive subordinates to men in all spheres of life to the current teaching that lay and clerical women are equal but complementary partners with men in religious, political, economic, and social endeavors. Nevertheless, the papacy has remained firm in the conviction that ordination is for men only. Source
The people spreading concrete information on the dangers of globalism are accomplishing far more than those sitting around buying bitcoin or passing around Q-cult nonsense.
Jesus chastised religious leaders in the first century for not knowing the time of His arrival. Will we make the same mistake today? Christ stated how His second coming would be preceded by global events signifying the end of our age. We may not know the day or the hour, but we can know the season!

Usually, the Lord doth no great thing for or against his people, without giving warning of it before it comes.
They perverted justice among themselves (v. 7): “You turn judgment to wormwood, that is, you make your administrations of justice bitter and nauseous, and highly displeasing both to God and man.’’ That fruit has become a weed, a weed in the garden; as nothing is more venerable, nothing more valuable, than justice duly administered, so nothing is more hurtful, nothing more abominable, than designedly doing wrong under color and pretense of doing right. Corruptio optimi est pessima —The best, when corrupted, becomes the worst.
It is impossible to find anyone in the Bible who was a power for God who did not have enemies and was not hated.

8 We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11 For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
