The Alfred E. Smith Memorial Fund Dinner is a white tie fundraiser for Roman Catholic Charities. It is held at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel and hosted by the Alfred E. Smith family and the Roman Catholic Cardinal of New York. This year’s list of invitees to the 71st annual dinner included Presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. The only thing between the two presidential rivals was Cardinal Dolan with whom they shared the meal and the dais. Normally, the dinner speeches are something of a roast with the speakers light-heartedly ridiculing themselves and teasing each other.

But Donald Trump skewered Hillary Clinton with harsh criticism and was booed by the audience. Though the media skewered Trump in return, the Catholic Church took advantage of the opportunity to hobnob with the very wealthy attendees. The Al Smith Dinner dates back to 1945, honoring the legacy of the nation’s first Roman Catholic presidential candidate.

The toxic remarks created a lot of tension at the dinner, but Cardinal Dolan eased the tension and reminded those wealthy Wall Street executives and other influential people why they had gathered together – to support the Catholic Charities, particularly the children they help.

And though the latest release of hacked emails from the Clinton campaign has led to allegations of a deep-seated anti-Catholic bias in the Democratic Party, Cardinal Dolan was able to raise a record-breaking six million dollars for needy children. Trump’s questionable stance on abortion has Catholic voters in a knot as well.

“If there’s one thing that both this election cycle has revealed, it’s that something is seriously wrong with the way we do politics…” wrote Crux. “Yet despite the grim circumstances, the refreshing reminder from last night was that even in the midst of such contentiousness, the Catholic Church still has the ability to bring people together and offer hope and a better way of engaging the world around us.”

Dolan used the acrimony between the candidates to suggest that it won’t necessarily be a political campaign that will be there to meet the needs of the poor—it will be the Church.

Who is the Antichrist?


 

Researchers are now saying the link between excessive Internet use and mental health has been underestimated.

The more time you spend on the internet and social media, the more likely you are to suffer from mental health issues, according to researchers at McMaster University.

The link between internet addiction and mental health issues is stronger than previously thought, researchers say, as more and more people are unable to cope with everyday life without having an online fix.

The study surveyed 254 students at the university in Hamilton using the Internet Addiction Test (IAT), which was created in 1998, as well as a newer scale of the researcher’s own design.

Those who screened positive on the IAT as well as on the researcher’s scale had more trouble dealing with their day-to-day activities including life at home, work, school and social settings, says chief researcher Michael Van Ameringen at McMaster University to Science Daily.

Of those surveyed, 33 of them met the criteria for internet addiction and 107 for problematic internet use.

“Internet use has changed radically over the last 18 years, through more people working online, media streaming, social media, etc.,” says Michael Van Ameringen, professor of psychiatry and behavioural neuroscience at McMaster, to The Mirror. “We were concerned that the IAT questionnaire may not have been picking up on problematic modern internet use, or showing up false positives for people who were simply using the internet rather than being over-reliant on it.”

The study also found that 56 per cent of university students had a difficult time controlling their use of video streaming websites, 48 per cent couldn’t control their use of social media and 29 per cent had trouble staying away from instant messaging.

As well, 42 per cent were facing mental health problems as a result of their over-use of the internet.

These findings, Van Ameringen says, could help medical professionals and how they approach patients with internet dependency.

“If you are trying to treat someone for an addiction when in fact they are anxious or depressed, then you may be going down the wrong route,” he says. “We need to understand this more, so we need a bigger sample, drawn from a wider, more varied population.”

Internet addiction has not been formally recognized by the American Psychiatric Association’s DSM-5 as a diagnosable condition, citing more research is needed.

Jesus wants to know you he wants a relationship with you take the time to read and study God’s word and he will give peace. God wants you to be temperate in all things.

“AND EVERY MAN THAT STRIVETH FOR THE MASTERY IS TEMPERATE IN ALL THINGS.”(1 Corinthians 9:25)

1. Won’t the second coming of Christ be a secret rapture?

Answer: The secret rapture theory is relatively new to Christianity. However many sincere Christians today believe this popular (but non-Biblical) concept of the second-coming. The eight points of the secret rapture theory are as follows (Keep in mind that this is a theory, not based on Bible facts):

1. The rapture is silent.

2. The rapture is invisible.

3. The rapture leaves the wicked alive.

4. God removes the righteous to protect them from the tribulation.

5. Christ’s second coming will be in two stages: (1) the secret rapture, and (2) the actual coming, which will be glorious.

6. These two stages of the second coming will be seven years apart.

7. The rapture will take place before the revelation of the Antichrist, who then will bring about the tribulation.

8.The wicked will at this point have a second chance to be converted and to serve Christ.

These eight premises have been so widely embraced that most people accept them as fact without pausing to investigate. But our only safety is to search the Scriptures daily to determine whether those things are so (Acts 17:11). Prepare for some surprises.

1.The rapture is not silent, but rather, is extremely noisy (1 Thessalonians 4:16; Psalms 50:3; Jeremiah 25:30, 31).

2.The rapture is not invisible, but will be seen by all (Revelation 1:7; Matthew 24:27).

3.The rapture does not leave the wicked alive. They are slain by the brightness of the Lord’s coming (2 Thessalonians 2:8)

4.God does not remove the righteous from the tribulation, but rather protects them from it (Psalm 91:5-12; Rev. 3:10).

5.Christ’ second coming will not be in two stages–one secret and the other seen by all. There is only one second coming, and it will be seen by every living person on earth. There is no Scripture to support a two-phase second coming.

6.The secret rapture teachers claim there is a seven-year period between the two second comings of Christ. This claim is unscriptural.

7. Antichrist does not appear three and one-half years after the second-coming of Jesus. He has been active for centuries (1 John 4:3) and is even now at work!

8. The wicked will not have a second opportunity to be saved after the second coming. All sinners are destroyed at the second coming. There is no second opportunity for anyone to be saved after Christ’s return. (Revelation 22:11,12; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9).

The secret rapture theory has been based on a system of theology known as dispensationalism, taught in many of the Bible schools that prepare ministers for the pulpits of the world. The order of events taught by this system is:

(1)The rapture (resurrection of the righteous, saints being caught up to heaven).

(2) The great tribulation

(3)The second coming of Christ (really the third) in power in glory.

(4)The 1,000 reign of Christ

This order of events is contrary to the order given in the Scriptures. Here are the records of the Biblical order of events:

Matthew 24

(1) The tribulation (verse 29)

(2) The darkening of the sun and moon, falling of stars. (verse 29).

(3) Glorious coming of Christ in power and majesty (verse 30)

(4) Saints caught up to heaven. (verse 31)

Mark 13

(1) Tribulation. (verse 24)

(2) Darkening of sun and moon, falling of stars. (verses 24, 25)

(3) Second coming in power and glory. (verse 26)

(4) Saints caught up to heaven. (verse 27)

Luke 21

(1) Tribulation events. (verses 25, 26)

(2) Signs in sun, moon, and stars. (verse 25)

(3) Second coming in power and glory. (verse 27)

1 Thessalonians 4

(1) Second coming in power and glory. (verse 16)

(2) Resurrection of righteous. (verse 16)

(3) Saints caught up to heaven. (verse 17)

Revelation 6

(1) Earthquake, darkening of sun, moon turned to blood, falling of stars. (verse 12, 13)

(2) Second coming of Jesus in power and glory. (verses 14-17)

Joel 2

(1) Darkening of sun and moon. (verse 31)

(2) Second coming in power and glory. (verse 32)

Isn’t it amazing that there is not one Bible reference that gives the dispensationalist order of events?

2. Since the Lord is coming “as a thief in the night,” how can anyone know anything about it?

Answer: The answer is found in 1 Thessalonians 5:1-4: “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.” Notice, the day of the Lord comes as a thief TO THE UNPREPARED, but not to those who are called “brethren.”

The ‘Rapture’—Rooted in Rome!

The foundation of the ‘rapture’ theory was laid over 400 years ago, upon the specific orders of the Catholic Church. Every Christian needs to understand how this fabrication of error was designed to neutralize the great Protestant Reformation. If the facts of history were known by Protestants today who defend with such great emotion the rapture theory and the futurist antichrist doctrine, they would be horrified.

Luther and his fellow reformers boldly identified the pope as the “man of sin,” and labeled the Catholic Church as the antichrist of prophecy. In response to those charges the Roman hierarchy assigned two Jesuit priests to develop counter-interpretations which would turn the focus away from the Catholic Church. These two Spanish priests flooded the 16th century with their counter-Reformation propaganda. Alcazar of Seville applied all the ‘beast’ prophecies to Antiochus Epiphanes, who lived long before the popes began to rule in Rome. His system of interpretation came to be known as the Preterist School of prophecy.

On the other hand, Jesuit Francisco Ribera invented a system know as the Futurist School of interpretation. He taught that the antichrist was to be some future superman who would appear near the end of time and continue in power for 3 ½ years. It is his clever, unscriptural theory, which has been resurrected by modern evangelical Protestants Christians. And today, millions of Baptists, Methodists, Pentecostals, etc., hold this anti-Protestant concoction of the Jesuits as some kind of infallible doctrine. Yet these same denominations claim to be faithful supporters of Protestant theology. Luther and other stalwart protesters against Catholic errors would be astonished if they were suddenly resurrected, to hear what is being taught in the name of Protestantism.

In the early 1800s, the futurist view of Jesuit Ribera passed through certain refinements and additions, including the seven-year tribulation and the snatching away of the saints. For the first time it was espoused by Protestant teachers who were seeking ways of reconciliation with Rome. Through the influence and writings of John Nelson Darby of the Plymouth Brethren Church in England, the new doctrine spread to the United States. During the middle and latter part of the nineteenth century, it received its biggest boost from Cyrus Schofield, who incorporated it into the notes of his Schofield Reference Bible, published in 1909.
