We often speak of the derailing of the
Evangelization effort and that those who were entrusted by Jesus to
spread to truly Good News, failed.
The purpose of this brief document is to help the faithful understand
how satan managed to achieve such a perverse objective and continues to
As we have often said: "When you know
thy enemy and the weapons he uses,
you, through the Grace of God, become more and more immune to
There are a few fundamental pillars
upon which such snare has been carried out and continues to be
(a) Humans tend to be egocentric,
otherwise they would not have survived evolutionary process (1) until God "...breathed into his face the breath of
life, and man became a living soul..." [Gen. 2:7]
creating him in His spiritual image [Gen. 1:26].
(b) Humans learn primarily by why they perceive by their senses - most
specially through their vision and hearing.
(c) Very little escapes what the brain perceives in the
level which, in turn, modulates what the brain consciously learned from
visual and audible stimuli.
[The examples of items (b) and
(c) are so many and so varied that
the reader should not need that we give specific examples of their
manifestation in our daily lives.]
(d) It was during the Protestant
reformation that the Biblical texts became available to many except
to Catholics loyal to Rome, who were forbidden from reading the Holy
(e) It was during the mid 19th century that the Roman Catholic Church,
during the term of Pope Leo XIII (2) , encouraged the
faithful to read the Holy Texts.
(f) Everyone is taught that the Bible - most specially the New
Testament - is the Word of God.
There are Biblical teachings which are
crystal clear and there are others which require interpretation through
coherence with other Biblical Texts. We have already covered
Some Sacred Texts are to be taken literally, while others, symbolically
- it all
depends - as we have amply shown.
For the purpose of this document we will adhere to the texts that are
crystal clear to avoid the coloring or disfigurement of those teachings
that may need
will use only a few clear quotations from the Douay-Rheims
Bible - the traditionally official Bible of the Roman Catholic Church -
to unmask satan and his snares.
call none your father upon earth; for one is your father, who is in
heaven. [Matthew 23:9]
But be not you called Rabbi. For one
is your master; and all you are brethren. [Matthew 23:8]
When priests encourage the faithful to call them "father" what they are
implying is that what Jesus clearly forbade is not to be obeyed. That
the subconscious brain assimilates and applies. That Roman
Catholic Church in Spain has avoided this incoherence by using the
title "Don" before the priest's name instead of using "Father",
however, the Portuguese faithful, like in the English speaking
countries, use the Portuguese translation of "Father".
be ye called masters; for one is your master, Christ. [Matthew
"Master" implied or stated is used throughout the religious world to
superiority over the others. Once again, its use by those in charge of
the Evangelization process signals to the subconscious mind of the
faithful that what Jesus clearly
forbade is to bi ignored.
now I am not in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to
thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name whom thou has given me; that
they may be one, as we also are. [John 17:11]
The term "Holy Father" is used only once in the New
Testament and it
when Jesus was addressing God, the Father. Nonetheless, the Pope of the
Patriarchate of Rome (which is what the Roman Catholic Church is) has
assumed the name of "Holy Father". Not only he claims to be Christ on
Earth but has assumed the title that is so special that Jesus only used
it once when addressing His Father.
What does the subconscious of the faithful do with such repeated
on the truth? Process the information so that whomever is the Pope is
like God the Father - Almighty and Omniscient.
they love the first places at feasts, and the first chairs in the
synagogues, And salutations in the market place, and to be called by
men, Rabbi. [Matthew 23:6-7]
When the human eye feasts itself on the Pomp, Ceremony and Luxury which
accompanies the Roman Catholic Hierarchy, the faithful subconsciously
discounts the very serious condemnation of Jesus towards that behavior.
Once again the teachings
and warnings of Jesus are ignored, mocked or denied weakening the faith.
this I say, that every one of you saith: I indeed am of Paul; and I am
of Apollo; and I am of Cephas; and I of Christ. Is Christ divided? Was
Paul then crucified for you? or were you baptized in the name of Paul?
[1 Cor. 1:12-13]
For while one saith, I indeed am of
Paul; and another, I am of Apollo; are you not men? What then is
Apollo, and what is Paul? The ministers of him whom you have believed;
and to every one as the Lord hath given. [1 Cor. 3:4-5]
What happens when the faithful reads the above and thinks about the
many, many orders within the Roman Catholic Church - Dominicans,
Jesuits, Passionists, Opus Deists, etc., etc. and etc.? They
the very important message from Paul just as they discount what Jesus
After all, to the faithful the Pope is infallible (4) and he is the "Holy
Father" so, if he approves all of that - the faithful subconsciously
accepts that it must be true regardless of what Jesus teaches in the
Before the Roman Catholics were allowed to read the Holy Texts the
destruction of their faith was not as severe as it became after the mid
nineteenth century. That can be seen in the vestiges of pre mid
nineteenth century Europe.
Up to that point only the Protestants had uncovered
the subtle, but effective, attacks to the faith by the Roman
Patriarchate so their faith was
However, when "cradle" Catholics started reading the Holy Texts,
the only way that they could subconsciously hold on to their "cradle
discounting what the Holy
If in such major and visible points the "Infallible Holy Father" was
rejecting fundamental teachings of Jesus as if they were lies, how was
the faithful going to
tangible teachings such as:
said to them: Because of your unbelief. For, amen I say to you, if you
have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain,
Remove from hence hither, and it shall remove; and nothing shall be
impossible to you. [Matthew 17:19]
seek ye first the kingdom of God
and his justice, and all these things shall be added unto you. [Luke
