Ecumenism: 30,000 Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox Youth Unite in Strasbourg (December 2013)

“Some 30,000 young Christians from across Europe – Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox – descended on Strasbourg on Saturday for a four-day gathering to share prayers and reflect on social issues … Most of the visitors come from Poland, Ukraine, France, Germany and Italy … From the Vatican, Pope Francis sent his blessing, urging the youngsters to overcome divisions among Christians and build a European family.”

The ecumenical movement is one of the main deceptions that Satan is pushing among professed Christians today, and those who unite with this movement will be going against the direct Word of God.

We are NOT to unite with false churches or religions, not for ANY REASON. We are to remain separate (2 Corinthians 6:17). Because two cannot walk together if they are not agreed on the truth (Amos 3:3). But God does have people trapped within these false churches and religions (Babylon) not knowing the truth and He is calling them to COME OUT (Revelation 18:4). Do it for yourself and study read the study below.

An all-night session had been a possibility because of an ugly standoff over presidential nominations and filibusters.
By Ted Barrett, CNN Senior Congressional Producer

An all-night session had been a possibility because of an ugly standoff over presidential nominations and filibusters.

CNN) — Senators voted late Thursday to approve a defense bill and end an ugly standoff over presidential nominations, averting a third overnight session in two weeks.

The Senate passed the National Defense Authorization Act 84 to 15. It then voted 55 to 45 to break a filibuster on the nomination of Alejandro Mayorkas to be the deputy secretary of Homeland Security.

On Friday morning, senators will begin a series of votes on the nominations of Mayorkas; John Koskinen to be commissioner of the IRS; and Brian Davis to be a federal district judge for Florida.

The confirmation vote on Janet Yellen to be chairwoman of the Federal Reserve has been pushed to January 6.

Progress has been difficult because the parties have been feuding over a new rule the majority Democrats forced through limiting filibusters over the objections of minority Republicans.

Before the agreement on the voting schedule, Republicans had insisted on all time allowed for floor debate, even if no one was talking. Such a process would have kept senators working all night and through most of Saturday, cutting their holiday break short.

Postings on McDonald’s’ employee resources site are warning workers to avoid eating too much fast food – including the kind of stuff served at the golden arches.

“Fast foods are quick, reasonably priced, and readily available alternatives to home cooking,” one post on the site says, according to CNBC. “While convenient and economical for a busy lifestyle, fast foods are typically high in calories, fat, saturated fat, sugar, and salt and may put people at risk for becoming overweight.”

The posts, which appear to be designed by a third party vendor, are located in the site’s ‘Health Encyclopedia’ section.

One posting bashes a meal of a burger, fries and soda – McDonald’s staples – as an “unhealthy choice.”

“Eat at places that offer a variety of salads, soups and vegetables to maintain your best health,” the site advises, next a picture of a sub sandwich and salad that looks similar to the fare offered at rival Subway. “Although not impossible it is more of a challenge to eat healthy when going to a fast food place. In general, avoiding items that are deep fried are your best bet.”

The site also says “people with high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease must be very careful about choosing fast food because of its high fat, salt, and sugar levels,” according to CNBC.

McDonald’s defended the content in a statement issued Monday afternoon, highlighting the new, healthier menu options that the fast food giant has added in recent years, such as egg whites and fruit smoothies.

“Portions of this website continue to be taken entirely out of context,” the statement said. “This website provides useful information from respected third-parties about many topics, among them health and wellness. It also includes information from experts about healthy eating and making balanced choices. McDonald’s agrees with this advice.”

McDonald’s CEO Don Thompson also defended the company’s food during a shareholders meeting in May, saying “We don’t sell junk food.”

Canada’s Supreme Court struck down three of the country’s anti-prostitution laws on Friday, including bans on brothels and street solicitation, finding that they violated the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and violated sex workers’ safety.

The unanimous 9 to 0 decision will go into effect in one year, allowing Parliament to provide other avenues to regulate sex work.

Prostitution is not illegal in Canada, though it has been deemed against the law to live off the avails of another’s prostitution, as was street soliciting and operation of brothels. Opponents of the laws said they created a dangerous climate for sex workers. The court found these restrictions were too broad and disproportionate to the law’s goals.

Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin said a law banning “safe havens” for sex workers – who often did not have a choice but to work in the sex trade – puts them in danger.

“The impugned laws deprive people engaged in a risky, but legal, activity of the means to protect themselves against those risks,” she wrote. “It makes no difference that the conduct of pimps and johns is the immediate source of the harms suffered by prostitutes.”

One current prostitute and two former sex workers spurred the challenge, saying such work would be safer if they were allowed to screen clients and operate in brothels with bodyguards.

One of the plaintiffs, former dominatrix Terri Bedford, said the decision was a “great day for Canada, for Canadian women from coast to coast,” according to Reuters. Another plaintiff, Valerie Scott, said the ruling humanizes those in the sex trade.

Supporter of the restrictions Janine Benedet, who argued in court for the Women’s Coalition for the Abolition of Prostitution, called on Parliament to make pimping and buying of sex illegal. “There is no constitutional right to buy a woman for sex.”

Chief Justice McLachlin rejected the government’s argument that it is not the laws that regulate sex work that puts prostitutes at risk, but rather prostitution itself.

Reffering to a high-profile trial and 2007 conviction of serial killer Robert Pickton, who sought out prostitutes and other women in Vancouver as his victims, McLachlin wrote, “A law that prevents street prostitutes from resorting to safe havens…while a suspected serial killer prowls the streets, is a law that has lost sight of its purpose.”

Though legal prostitution is common in much of Europe and South America, the issue of human trafficking has caused some countries to reanalyze laws governing the sex trade. France is considering a law that applies stiff fines on clients, for instance.

“How prostitution is regulated is a matter of great public concern, and few countries leave it entirely unregulated,” McLachlin wrote.

She suggested Parliament has the opportunity to adjust laws on aspects of sex work that often intersect.

“Greater latitude in one measure – for example, permitting prostitutes to obtain the assistance of security personnel – might impact on the constitutionality of another measure – for example, forbidding the nuisances associated with keeping a bawdy house (brothel).”

Federal Justice Minister Peter MacKay responded with concern over the ruling, saying that the government was “exploring all possible options to ensure the criminal law continues to address the significant harms that flow from prostitution to communities, those engaged in prostitution, and vulnerable persons.”

Evangelical Fellowship of Canada lawyer Don Hutchinson urged Parliament to adopt models of Sweden and Norway, which criminalized the purchase of sex and of pimping, saying there is evidence that the decriminalization of prostitution increases human trafficking.  “In the last days … men shall be … lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God.” 2 Timothy 3:1-4. The current immoral generation, with its obsession with sex and filth is getting greater. Our Saviour warned His disciples that just prior to His second coming a state of things would exist very similar to that which preceded the flood. Eating and drinking would be carried to excess, and the world would be given up to pleasure. This state of things does exist at the present time. The world is largely given up to the indulgence of appetite; and the disposition to follow worldly customs will bring us into bondage to perverted habits,—habits that will make us more and more like the doomed inhabitants of Sodom. I have wondered that the inhabitants of the earth were not destroyed, like the people of Sodom and Gomorrah. I see reason enough for the present state of degeneracy and mortality in the world. Blind passion controls reason, and every high consideration is, with many, sacrificed to lust.

Pope Meets with Head of Islamic Organization: State they Worship the Same God (December 2013)

“The pope met with the head of an international Islamic organization on Friday, a meeting that was characterized as the first-ever for the group … For my part, I wish to assure you, following in the path of my predecessors, of my firm will to continue on the path of ecumenical dialogue … The pope’s request for prayers from the Muslims is consistent his belief that they worship the same God … The Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraph 841, reads, ‘The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims .. together with us they adore the one, merciful God.'”

So many sincere Catholics just do not know what is going on behind the scenes in this church. By having this ecumenical dialogue and stating that Muslims worship the one true God, the same God as they, the pope and Catholic Church FLAT OUT REJECT JESUS CHRIST. Muslims reject Jesus as their Saviour, therefore they reject the One True God! Our Heavenly Father, and Father of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.

The pope is being directed by Satan, the arch deceiver. And he is being directed to unite the churches and other religions in this ecumenical movement, ready for the final great deception! PLEASE, seek the truth friends. PLEASE heed the call and come out of Babylon!

John 14:6 …’I AM the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father but by Me.’

Recently the Australian Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry into the child abuse of the Catholic Church in Victoria released its report on the horrific saga. Monica Dux, an ex-Catholic wrote the following in the Sydney Morning Herald.

“…Any residual sympathy I had for the Catholic Church has bled away in recent years as the horrifying extent of clerical abuse has been laid bare. The acts that have been documented are of the most appalling kind, not only in their cruelty and their scale, but in the profound betrayal of trust that they involve. It’s been convenient for believers to look on these crimes as the acts of wicked individuals. But the truth is far more shocking. The church has protected these criminals.

“It has systematically enabled, covered up and defended their crimes, in a way that suggests a thoroughly diseased and dysfunctional institutional culture; one that places the interests of the organization over those of individuals.

“Even now, many of those who represent the church continue to demonstrate an inability to grasp the extent and nature of the crimes committed against generations of children, or to offer adequate compensation. As a committee member in the Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry said: ‘Today’s church leaders view the current question of abuse of children as a “short-term embarrassment” which should be handled as quickly as possible to cause the least damage to the church’s standing.’

“People sometimes argue they are justified in participating in a corrupt organization, so they can change it from within. Yet there is a point where an organization becomes so diseased, so thoroughly associated with wickedness, that no decent person would affiliate themselves with it. Surely the Catholic Church has reached this point…

“…Wouldn’t the ultimate act of contrition be to dismantle the organization that fostered, protected, and is still unable to grasp the gravity of the abuse its agents perpetrated? Maybe this is one time when we really should be asking, what would Jesus do?

“Because there is one thing I am sure he would not be doing, and that is attending Mass this Sunday.”

The author may be on to something. The Bible describes this wickedness in graphic spiritual terms.

“And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will show unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead [was] a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:1-5

As for affiliating with the Catholic Church, the Bible is equally pointed. Decency demands God’s true people to “Come out of her my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4

As for dismantling the church, the Bible also predicts the dissolution of the Papacy in a most violent and dramatic way. It will be done by rulers or kings. “And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.” Revelation 17:16-18

Note that this is describing a city that rules over the kings of the earth. If there is one city-state that has ruled over kings and rulers, and is seeking to do so again by political might and power, it is Vatican City. Please read the articles at the bottom do it for yourself.
