Points to Ponder About


PURPOSE

The purpose of Points to Ponder About is to stimulate thinking that would draw the disoriented Faithful back to God (1) and away from the hypocritical duplicity  of some religious institutions which are destroying the little faith left on earth (2)(3).

The instructions are simple: Just invoke the illumination of the Holy Spirit of God while you ponder upon any of these Points to Ponder and let God guide you to Light. We know that some make-believe religious leaders will say: "What about satan interfering and leading the soul astray?" To those... we invoke Our Lord's Words again:

"...Get the behind me, Satan: the art an offense unto me: for the severest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men." [Matthew 16:23]

 and further

"And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and yea shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.  For every one that sketch receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.  If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?  Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?  If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? [Luke 11:9-13]

 and finally

"But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in." [Matthew 23:13]

 

Points To Ponder - December 2005 - January 2006

Do you wonder why The Vatican, "unofficially" of course, has come out in the L'Osservarore Romano defending the contention that the concept of Intelligent Design is not scientific? To wit:

 "But it is not correct from a methodological point of view to stray from the field of science while pretending to do science"... "It only creates confusion between the scientific plane and those that are philosophical or religious."  Fiorenzo Facchini, a professor of evolutionary biology at the University of  Bologna

For the same reason they have denied reality for too long now - ignorance of basic Divine Truths and Realities.  Allow us, through the Grace of God, to prove
Dr. Fiorenzo Facchini wrong in one or two sentences:

Statistically speaking (Statistics is a branch of Mathematics which is considered a Basic Science), it is impossible to attain order out of chaos without a set of instructions. To confirm it, from the other direction: The only way to attain chaos is to remove whatever mechanism sustains the established order. No random mechanism is capable of sustaining order.

The Intelligent Design concept is not a religious or philosophical concept, unless, of course,  miguel de Portugal prayed fluid bed reactors into successful operation and philosophized the disposal of industrial wastes in keeping with Governmental standards without realizing it.

Do you ever wonder why if the Eucharistic Presence of Jesus is indeed the presence His Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity as the Catholic Church teaches (and indeed is - we know!) and is a key fundament of the Catholic Faith - most Catholics get so emotional over the relics of Saints and "miracle performing" statues and pay so little attention to "The Real Thing"?

If we need to explain this "why" to you, you do not need to know, nonetheless, the clue may be found here.

Do you ever wonder why we are always hearing talk about the  Bible, and the Ten Commandments and Jesus and the world is in the condition it is today where five million children of God die every year from our neglect?

Because the Bible is not to decorate a coffee table or an entry hall table with; the Bible is to help understand God and His interaction with His Creation, thus allowing us to communicate better with Him - especially in the "listening to Him" part of the communication.

Because the Ten Commandments are not for the decoration of Court Houses and other public buildings but to be obeyed and lived to the letter.

Because Jesus has been primarily used as a great "Marketing Tool" and "Tool for Manipulation of the Masses" for centuries

But above all - because there is practically no Faith left in the world today, just Chatter about it. Just as Jesus warned us: "Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?" [Luke 18:8]

If there is one sure sign that we are reaching the End of These Times is precisely the absence of Faith and that the antiChrist Spirit rules: "Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon." [Rev 13:11]


Published on January 1st, 2006 - Feast of the Holy Family

Do you ever wonder how would we react today if we found out that....

....our neighbor became pregnant while still unmarried, that there was no traditional wedding feast celebrating the union of this maiden and her alleged husband, Joseph, that shortly after the birth of the baby, which took place in some unknown and unregistered place of Bethlehem, the three simply vanished only to reappear years later with some sort of fantastic story of angels and dreams?

...said offspring, of that already "quirky" family, from the clear blue, becomes an itinerant preacher talking about some unseen Kingdom and hinting at the fact that He was the Son of God?

....said itinerant preacher would take on the "Almighty Roman Catholic Church Administrators" (the "Temple Masters" of Jesus' time) and accuse them of every imaginable abuse and misdeed?

If that were to occur today, we would see that somehow the legal system of our time got Him out of the way - one way OR another - for He had become a danger to the established Social Order since the masses were responding to His call.

All of the above, brothers and sisters, are the "key ingredients" that make Joseph, Mary and Jesus the "Holy Family".... in all, they did the Will of The Father regardless of the consequences to themselves - consequences that went as far as the execution of the Son.

Do not deceive yourselves - that is what being "Holy" is all about: Total abandonment to the Will of God regardless of the consequences to us. An abandonment with the absolute certainty that God will never, ever, ask us to do anything illegal or immoral - that is - against His very clear and specific Laws - in our Service to Him. Those who truly serve Him do not need exceptions to the rule such as: "This is wrong but since we do it for the greater good, it is made right by the end result." Do not be deceived, that is a blasphemy and its price is very steep.

We suggest a review of our document expounding the importance and value of Coherence in the obedient abandonment to the Will God.


Published on December 27th, 2005 - Feast of St. John the Apostle and Evangelist

Do you ever wonder why... every other illuminated, researcher, historian and/or enemy of the Faith ascribe full and/or half brothers and sisters to Jesus, yet, from the Cross He said (in reference to Mary and John): "Woman, behold thy son." After that, He said to the disciple: "Behold thy Mother". And from that hour, the disciple took Her to his own." [John 19:26-27]

Obviously if Jesus had had full or half sisters and brothers, according their custom, Mary would have stayed with them and not be with John henceforth - even all the way to Ephesus.


Published on December 24th, 2005

Do you ever wonder why... society was manipulated so that Santa Claus replaced the Three Wise Men of the Epiphany? Because the concept of Santa Claus (*) is man's fabrication, as the False Christ is, and the Three Wise Men were real - actual Astrologers - who knew, from Jews who had been taken to their countries, about an astronomical sign that would announce the arrival of the Messiah.

But that is not all.... Little kids are made to believe in a visible "Santa" while at the same time, but with lesser enthusiasm, they are somehow taught about and unseen God. Later they  find out that Santa really does not exist - that it was a lie. At that moment the subconscious mechanism, aided by the reprogramming by the world starts telling the young person that that invisible God must also be a lie and that sooner or later they too will find out.

Clever, isn't it? Most everyone cooperates with that effective method for the destruction of the incipient faith. Now even Benedict has joined the "bandwagon". Is anyone surprised? If anyone is, they should check their vision and their hearing.
                                    
(*) There is a St. Nicholas but he was transformed into an unreal character.

Do you ever wonder why... the Birth of the Savior of the World, Jesus Christ, is celebrated on December 25th? The Church does not really know, but now, you will know the real reason. Rejoice! The celebration date is right on target!

Published on December 19th, 2005

Do you ever wonder why... generally speaking, the countries in the New World who were colonized and "civilized" by ultra Catholic Spain and Portugal ended up being the most poor, most exploited, more unjust and backward nations? We know for a fact that it is not the Catholic Faith that is at fault.

Think about it.... That "picture" has far more information than the proverbial "thousand words."


Published on December 15th, 2005

Do you wonder why... the Vatican makes an issue of clearly stating that "Torture is Unacceptable" (*) while the Papacy claims blanket infallibility, yet that is precisely all they did during the Inquisition, under the approving eye of the Popes of the time, an Inquisition which the Roman Church plays down (in a denial-style mode) jut like the Iranian President is playing down the Holocaust? 

How can we expect the Faith to survive as it is asphyxiated with duplicity and incoherence?

_____-
  (*) Which, of course, is unacceptable then, now and forever!


Published on December 12th, 2005

Do you wonder why... those who claim purity of body through celibacy, turn around and, unaware of what they are really doing, practice sado-masochism or self mutilation, piously called "mortification" or "sacrifice" or "purification" or "sin prevention"?

Sadism and masochism have become "the rage" of our decadent world since it is the maximum form of sexual deviation. Of course, when one flagellates oneself it becomes sado-masochism: The same individual administers and receives the pain. Scripturally speaking, only servants/priests of Baal [1Kings 18:28] and the like would engage in such travesty.

Some will protest with: "It has been done for centuries, even by saints."

To that we say: "Christian Administrators" have also killed, or indirectly caused the death of, more humans in "the Name of God" than any other group in human history - acting against every teaching of Jesus, the Christ - from Whom they dared to derive their label of "Christian". Does that make it right? Of course not!

We can offer very effective sacrifices to God through fasting; eating what we do not like; offering extra prayers;  acts of charity (not from our excesses!); dress, eat and drive below our financial means; turn the other cheek, for a change; walk to Fátima, for example, as many Portuguese do; and joyfully accept and offer every inconvenience and aggravation we come across in our daily lives for the love of Jesus, in reparation for the outrages against the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the conversion of sinners. We say to offer those that "we come across in our daily lives" and not to go out and look for them. Keep very clear in mind that, when Jesus went to pray to Gethsemane the first thing He did was to ask the Father if it was possible for the chalice to pass Him by
[Luke 22:42].

Make no mistake - anyone who wants to be more of a martyr than Jesus, is under the influence of satan - who always wants to upstage God.


Published on December 7th, 2005

With all of that "Limbo talk" coming from the Vatican and the Press - Do you wonder why... if the Vatican has unilaterally ruled, and insists, that "There is no salvation outside the Church" [Catechism 846], that Baptism is "...necessary for salvation." [Catechism 157], and all other rulings issued with the only real purpose of making themselves indispensable, where are poor Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Jesse, David, Solomon, etc., etc.

If the Church Administrators would have placed their emphasis in Evangelizing as Jesus intended them to do, and not in their survival as an "elite private club", making available to all who desired them the Sacramental Treasure which, in spite of them!, has reached us today, the world would not be the sewer it has become.

No, miguel de Portugal is not "a modernist" , au contraire! miguel de Portugal is only calling a "Spade" a "Spade" so that the disoriented faithful understand why God will use said "Spade" to dig a hole into which to bury a crucified and dead Church Administration before He Resurrects it in Glory as He intended it to be originally: To lead one and all back to the House of the Father.
