Pope Credit Edgar Jiminez

(Breitbart) — In his message for the “World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation” Thursday, Jorge Bergoglio, who also goes by the name of “Pope Francis” as head of Roman Catholicism, said that human-induced global warming, as well as a loss of biodiversity are “sins” against God, which must be atoned for by planting trees, avoiding the use of plastic and paper and “separating refuse.”

“Global warming continues, due in part to human activity,” Francis said, adding that “2015 was the warmest year on record, and 2016 will likely be warmer still.”

“This is leading to ever more severe droughts, floods, fires and extreme weather events. Climate change is also contributing to the heart-rending refugee crisis. The world’s poor, though least responsible for climate change, are most vulnerable and already suffering its impact,” he wrote.

Global warming is a sin! The pope has now called on Christians and all people all over the world to take serious action to protect nature through his new encyclical. But it is actually the Papacy that is leading the world in rejection of God’s law and thereby increasing the withdrawal of God’s blessings and protection. Rome’s pious appeals for the protection of creation just masks Satan’s aims to eventually blame God’s people for the disasters. In the name of God, rejection of His holy law will become universal under Rome’s leadership. Satan will be given permission to greatly increase the damage caused by the destruction of nature and Rome and others will say that it is God’s judgments that are being poured out. They will point to God’s people who keep His law, especially His seventh-day Sabbath, as the cause of God’s. As world leaders work to gradually bring about global changes that will make all people less free, particularly less free to follow their conscience, we must be making every effort to come into line with Jesus Christ. We must be making every effort to live his love through obedience to His law. May God’s peace be with you my friends, as we seek to know and do His will.

There is a problem on the transgender front. Confusion. Yes, confusion. And it’s not just in the minds of the transgenders. And it’s becoming more menacing.

Now days, if you maintain the viewpoint that there are men, and there are women and that the difference between them is fundamental, you are a bigot, on par with “racist,” “sexist,” or “homophobic.” Now days we must recognize “gender-fluid,” as a relevant and equal gender subset. Never mind that the vast majority of the human race accepts this binary distinction. The new bigotry is fast becoming an enforceable orthodoxy. And children and young people are facing an attitude reassignment.

One feminist ideologue Germaine Greer said that men who become women after medical treatment were still men. Other progressives attacked her for making such a politically incorrect statement.

Some think that transgender people have been failed, not that their sex change surgery was a failure, but that society won’t shake its objective evidence criteria for determining what gender they are. They should be able to switch back and forth at will.

And in some places, like Ireland, Malta, Argentina and Denmark, all you have to do is fill out a self-declaration form. Gender has become irrelevant, according to British Tory MP Maria Miller. “We should be looking at ways to trying to strip back talking about gender.”

Yet, the political class is obsessed with gender issues and can’t stop talking about them. Britain has even made gender reassessment a protected characteristic in the Equality Act. And the National Health Service has a National Clinical Reference Group for Gender Identity Services. And on Transgender Day of Remembrance, the Department of Education flew the transgender flag.

Perhaps we’re all supposed to be “gender-fluid” now. But gender is not fluid. It is factual. What is fluid is the language used to deconstruct traditional forms of gender identity. Gender identity comes from a complex relationship between biological sex and behavior. There’s no getting around it. Nevertheless, ideology rules these days. Gender identity is a social construct, not a biological fact among transgender proponents.

But those who feel trapped in the wrong gender are confused. “Surgery may not resolve this confusion. Many who change sex still don’t feel comfortable; tragically, some even commit suicide.” And to those who are desperate to make a gender change, gender is not irrelevant. It is of all-consuming importance.

The new gender politics holds that any evidence of difference is a form of prejudice. “If people want to identify with either gender or none, no one is allowed to gainsay it. Objective reality crumbles under the supremacy of subjective desire.”

“In fact, gender fluidity itself creates victims. Professor Paul McHugh is the former chief psychiatrist at Johns Hopkins hospital in the US. Most young boys and girls who seek sex reassignment,” McHugh has written, “have psychosocial issues and presume that such treatment will resolve them. The grim fact is that most of these youngsters do not find therapists willing to assess and guide them in ways that permit them to work out their conflicts and correct their assumptions. Rather, they and their families find only “gender counsellors” who encourage them in their sexual misassumptions.”

Any doctor who may look into the psychological history of a “transgender-ed” boy or girl in search of a resolvable problem could lose his or her license to practice medicine in some places. What ever happened to medical freedom? After all, half of young, and a third of adult transgender people say they have attempted suicide in Britain alone? But Britain’s establishment blames the so-called “transphobia” of others in their society for pushing them into deep depression, and uses it to justify state-mandated coercion. Trans and gender issues, they say, should be taught in schools as part of personal, social and health education.

“We can all predict what will happen. Gender fluidity will be actively promoted as just another lifestyle choice.” And “any differentiation in value between behavior or attitudes is bigoted and prohibited.” They must wipe gender from a child’s mind as well as any notion of gender norms. And though most children grow out of any gender confusion that may experience, the establishment doesn’t want that to happen. Instead of viewing it as a temporary health issue, it has become a political statement to be enforced. And gender-fluidity deniers will be accused of hate crimes.”

“The West is very much on a journey. From divorce and lone parenthood to gay marriage, what was once regarded as a source of disadvantage or category error has been transformed into a human right. In the process, compassion has turned into oppression.”

“Gender cannot be at real risk because it is anchored in an immutable reality. What is on the cards is oppression, socially engineered dysfunction and the loss of individual freedom.”

“Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot… But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.” Luke 17:28 and 29.

Over half of Republicans want to ignore Bill of Rights and make Christianity the national religion (February 2015)

“A poll found that over half of the religious right wants to establish Christianity as the country’s official creed. When asked if they supported establishing Christianity as the national religion, 57 percent of the Republicans surveyed told Public Policy Polling (PPP) that they were in favor. Three in ten opposed turning the US into a theocracy, while 13 percent were unsure.”

And guess what so called ‘Christian religion’ it will be? Roman Catholicism!

We were told in Revelation 13 that the earth beast (America) would set up an IMAGE OF THE BEAST. An image of the Roman Catholic Papacy, which is a church-state union. Friends, we will soon see that same church-state union in America. And then the whole world will be ’caused’ to worship the Papacy and take it’s mark.

Revelation 13:11-17 …’And I beheld another beast [America] coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb [professed Christian nation], and he spake as a dragon [speak like Satan]. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast [the Papacy] before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast [the Papacy], whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles [false revival] which he had power to do in the sight of the beast [the Papacy]; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image [church-state union] to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live [revived Papal power]. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak [legislate], and cause [force] that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark [Sunday law], or the name of the beast, or the number of his name [666 – pope’s number].’

CNN

The FCC has passed a historic measure to more strictly regulate the Internet.

The new rules, based on the principles of “net neutrality,” act to provide equal opportunity for Internet speeds and access to websites.

The central question was whether network owners — like Comcast (CMCSA) or Time Warner Cable (TWC) — can discriminate what runs on their cables. The FCC’s answer on Thursday was: No.

The Democratic-led commission approved 3-to-2, split along party lines, to assert extra government authority over the Internet.

Now for the wild claims on both sides: “We saved the Internet!” or “We’ve destroyed it with government bureaucracy!”

Don’t believe the hype. Take a deep breath. It’s a long, tricky road ahead.

The FCC rules won’t be official until maybe summertime. Then major telecom companies will challenge new rules in court. A judge might put the rules on hold. The next president, if Republican, could let this fizzle away.

That’s why, in the near term, nothing changes. No, Netflix won’t suddenly stream any faster. No, AT&T and Comcast won’t abruptly stop laying down high-speed fiber cables in your neighborhood as retaliation. And yes, Netflix can still cut deals with broadband companies for faster access to a network.

So what just happened, exactly? The FCC just granted itself the power to defeat a raging, fire-breathing monster: the monopolistic network owners who can kill Internet freedom by blocking websites — or by creating an Internet fast lane for the privileged, few, rich tech companies that can pay for it.

But this monster is actually a phantom menace. Sure, in the past, telecoms have been bullies. Verizon blocked Google Wallet. AT&T blocked video chatting apps. Comcast slowed down file-sharing services like BitTorrent. Rural telephone provider Madison River blocked Vonage’s over-the-Internet phone calls. However, the FCC used existing rules to fix those problems.

The new rules essentially maintain the status quo. The Internet sure feels free today. It’ll feel the same way tomorrow.

That’s why some worry about how the FCC just ensured net neutrality. To enforce fairness rules, the agency will regulate network owners by scooping them up under Title II of the 1934 Telecommunications Act, a specific set of regulations that apply to phone companies. Telecoms say the rules don’t match the services they provide. They don’t trust the FCC’s promise that it will apply only a tiny fraction of those rules and won’t regulate rates and increase taxes.

“Assurances like these don’t tend to last very long,” warned Republican FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai. “Expect … regulation to ratchet up as time goes on.”

Meanwhile, Tom Wheeler, the FCC chairman who ditched his original dialed-back plan for this one, assured this isn’t a government power grab.

“This is no more a plan to regulate the Internet than the First Amendment is a plan to regulate free speech,” he said. “They both stand for the same concept: openness, expression and an absence of gatekeepers.”

How did we start caring about this? Credit comedian John Oliver, who got enough viewers of his HBO show that a record 4 million Americans sent comments to the FCC.

He framed it from the point of view of the average person dealing with their Internet service provider. Plans are expensive, service is inexplicably spotty and you have little choice. Clearly, the network owners are the bad guys.

During Thursday’s hearing, the testimony of those who spoke in favor of the FCC’s new rules all took that populist tone. Etsy CEO Chad Dickerson thanked the FCC for “protecting the Internet as an engine for economic opportunity.” Celebrated technologist Sir Tim Berners-Lee said this ensures modern entrepreneurs the same opportunity he had when he created the World Wide Web 26 years ago.

After the vote, President Obama issued this statement via Twitter: “Today’s FCC decision will protect innovation and create a level playing field for the next generation of entrepreneurs.”

But wait, there’s a third option. As this fight makes its way through the courts, Congress has the opportunity to stand up and write rules that work too.

After all, both network owners and the websites that flow data through them have a point. Outright blocking and anti-competitive behavior is unfair and should be illegal. On the other hand, for technical reasons, network owners need to manage traffic. Your video stream needs to move faster than your email for your experience to feel smooth.

That’s why critics call the Title II approach — what the FCC did today — a blunt instrument. But it’s not clear that it’s as wonderful — or terrible — as everyone says.

Rob Atkinson, president of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, a technology policy think tank, laments how the conversation has spiraled out of control.

“This has become a debate about a false choice: letting carriers do whatever the heck they want and overly burdensome regulations,” Atkinson said.

 

This seems to be a outrage to Net-flicks subscribers but to students of Bible prophecy this should be a bit alarming with the government to assert extra authority over the Internet the ones who speak about the Beast power in Revelation chapter 13 and 17 that exposes the Papacy. Could it be possible that this control by the government shutdown website ministries who are exposing the  Rome Catholic church  as the Antichrist. Could this control prevent the Three angles messages of Revelation 13 to be preached around the world. Its now time to have a urgency in our hearts to spread this message because in the near future it will not be easy to give the message when we will no longer buy or sell. In the darkages many Christians had their Bibles taken away from them and were persecuted for it we will be soon heading to this time again history is repeating itself. God’s word says That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past Ecclesiastes 3:15. Study for yourself below

Pope wants to Limit ‘Freedom of Speech’ CONCERNING FAITH in Light of Paris Attack (January 2015)

“Pope Francis said Thursday there are limits to freedom of speech, especially when it insults or ridicules someone’s faith … If my good friend Dr. Gasparri says a curse word against my mother, he can expect a punch, Francis said half-jokingly, throwing a mock punch his way. It’s normal. You cannot provoke. You cannot insult the faith of others. You cannot make fun of the faith of others.”

As we said below, Satan is using these ‘terror attacks’ to create a world mindset that is AGAINST Bible truth. What do you think will happen to those of us soon who continue to preach the Bible truth that the pope is the man of sin and that the Papacy is the antichrist system who brings about the mark of the beast? This kind of truth will no longer be tolerated. It will be considered ‘hate speech’ and we will be branded as ‘terrorists’. And as the world’s religions unite more and more in this ecumenical drive, then we who stand firm on the truth which is Jesus Christ, will be hated more and more. Then as Revelation 13 confirms, they will seek to kill us. In 2009, the department of homeland security issued a shocking report that linked “people with pro-life, anti-illegal immigration views, teachers of end-time prophecies, and veterans of war with ‘right-wing extremist’ groups.” Right wing extremists can easily be classed as one form of terrorist or another.

Pope Francis is chairman of the board for religious moderates, including Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, and Muslim

But stand firm on your most holy faith friends, as Jesus Christ our ONLY Lord and Saviour will deliver us!
