The Holy Spirit has been working overtime lately, giving you insights
that are astounding to me, and removing much doubt about the source of
much of your writing.
There are surely other “doubting Thomases” out there, but I know I am
one, so just a few words in our defense (those of us who mean well and
in spite of our sins, are genuinely desirous of God’s truth):
the apostle did indeed doubt, but repented, and gave his life
for the Lord in the end. Even his doubt served to advance the
cause. The same might be true today.
* Nobody less than St. Paul believed
Jesus was coming in his time, and
Corinthians is full of these references. He seems later to have
changed his emphasis. His theology was also very rich and guided
by the Holy Spirit, yet this does not assure that the listener is
perfectly in tune on all subjects.
* St. Paul went so far as to advise
people not to marry nor have
children, because there was no time. This does not seem to me to
be God’s will, nor is it to not have children today. By all
means, we should put our spiritual lives in order because world
circumstances suggest this is all possible, but I don’t see how we
should suspend the regular cycles of life since we do not know the day
* Since if the day of the Lord is really
near, then there is no place
to hide on earth and disrupting the routines of life is as likely to
increase suffering as to avoid any calamity. A little bit of
doubt, if it keeps people from changing the business of feeding their
families and helping their communities (but not from spiritual
renewal), is a good thing.
Again, the peace of the Lord be with you, for you have brought it to me
on many occasions.
Thank you for the opportunity to publicly address the
you bring to our attention.
First of all, there is no need to "defend" the "doubting Thomases out
there" since they are not being attacked. We use that term in the
same manner we may say (to a strictly US audience) "I am from
Missouri" meaning, tongue in cheek, that "I have to see it to believe
it" since, as you must know, that saying was derived from the fact that
Missouri is the "Show Me State". Of course, there must be some real
Thomases out there - those who have no real faith - just intellectual
Those who have to see to believe do not have real faith; their faith is
intellectual - a faith which will
withstand great adversity.
Jesus saith to him: Because thou hast seen me, Thomas, thou
hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and have believed.
However, when we use that term is not with that exact
Biblical meaning in mind. Actually - a little doubt is most helpful
as we will explain later.
Regarding Paul statement - we have covered those issues extensively in
one of our

Regarding whether Paul was really expecting the Second Coming then -
God has not charged miguel (2)
to broach that subject yet but, when He
does, we shall comply and you will read it on our pages.
Back to a "little bit of doubt" and how helpful it can be. Friend -
miguel has been, in what can be considered, a 16 year long stay in
Gethsemani. Although not necessary any more - initially he maintained
his sanity by enjoying the solace that only some doubt (not of God!)
can give. Although he
proceeded in the fulfillment of the Will of God - on the scene (3)
behind the scenes (4)
- he did take some comfort in the fact that "...hey,
maybe I am a little wrong". Of course as prophecies became news
became history that oasis of comfort wore out and now he cannot use it
- nor is it necessary for him any longer.
However, we must not confuse "a little bit of doubt" with "denial" (5)
. One - a little bit of
helps the Faithful to constructively cope with the day to day living
while spiritually preparing what is to come; the second one - denial
- is a ring
side seat for untold suffering if the individual in question is
targeted for Heaven.
Regarding what is probably the most quoted Bible Verse in the last 20
years: "...you know not the day nor
the hour..." [Matt. 25:13]
Our response is from the same source: 32 And from the fig tree learn a
parable: When the branch thereof is now tender, and the leaves come
forth, you know that summer is nigh.
33 So you also, when you shall see all these
things, know ye that it is nigh, even at the doors.
34 Amen I say to you, that this generation
shall not pass, till all these things be done.
35 Heaven and earth shall pass, but my words
shall not pass. [Matt. 24]
In addition - He said "day nor
hour" and that leaves out month and year, doesn't it? (6) (7)
Once again, thank you for the opportunity to come to the assistance of

My girl friend and I have been in recent discussion about
purgatory. I always explain to her that we both agree a soul must
be pure before entering heaven. There are verses that show
purgatory is a process and takes time because “… until Jesus pleads my
case,” and in the Bible it explains sins can be forgiven in the next
age Matt 12:32. There are verses that explain purgatory.
My understanding is purgatory is a place that people go to because they
did not fulfill the will of God here on Earth and must do their
penance. As a result purgatory is needed to get rid of all the
vices that hold us from loving God and this process takes time.
My question is that she always states that with the existence of
purgatory it proves that Jesus’ sacrifice is not enough. Further,
in the Old Testament it talks about Sheol and in the New Testament
Hades. She states that Jesus is the new covenant and the old
covenant is Sheol (similarity to Purgatory). Thus Jesus did away
with Sheol because of Him being the new covenant. Further, she
states that Purgatory seems to be a HUGE salvation issue and people
should know about it, yet it is not stated as bluntly as other aspects
in the Bible, how can I show her it is well documented (Using the Bible
of course, sola scriptura, though this belief is contradictory in
itself when analyzing Scripture)?
I want to be able to answer her questions to the fullest (even though
my responses make sense to me), but how do I keep the discussion simple
while answering these “conundrums” to her? Could you please
define purgatory and penance and answer how purgatory is still
necessary even with faith and Jesus’ Death and Resurrection.
Further, how the Old Testament references to Sheol are still relevant
to Christians that believe the Old Testament (Old Covenant) does not
apply to them.
Thank you for your time,
Thank you for the opportunity. Without getting bogged
down with words a la Vatican
us go directly where Jesus illustrates the reality of Purgatory:
56 You hypocrites, you know how to discern
the face of the
heaven and of the earth: but how is it that you do not discern this
57 And why even of yourselves, do you not
judge that which is just?
58 And when thou goest with thy adversary to
the prince, whilst
thou art in the way, endeavour to be delivered from him: lest perhaps
he draw thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the exacter,
and the exacter cast thee into prison.
59 I say to thee, thou shalt not go out
thence, until thou pay the very last mite. [Luke
One cannot present oneself before God "....until thou pay the very last mite", which
is after the payment has been made through prayer and
penance. (1) Jesus
was obviously not
talking about money.
There are two great misconceptions about Divine Law and Justice.
First - Jesus died to give
us an opportunity to save our souls. It is not an automatic
process, i.e. "He died for my sins, I
sign up in the local Christian
Church and, presto!, I am saved." Unfortunately far too many
Christians believe that it is this way.
Secondly - The forgiveness of sins do not, in any way, mean that we are
"scott free". When a sin is forgiven, the eternal consequences of said
sin are avoided, however, restitution must be made for the damages
done. The restitution is adjusted
by what we call "Mercy coupons" or "Mercy discounts" dispensed by God (2)
Obviously a woman who has had an abortion due to recreational sex is
going to "pay more" (even after the mortal
sin is forgiven)
than a woman who fell prey to her boyfriend's empty promises whose
debt, in turn, is higher than the debt of a woman who had an abortion
after being raped.
All trangressed a grave basic Dive Law: Thou
shalt not kill.
However the circumstances where totally
different and that is why the Mercy of God is for - to temper the
Divine sentence after Divine Justice is applied.
To further clarify this matter we shall use terms that all can
One gets in debt "over the head" and must default on the payment of the
debt. It may come to a surprise to many but: that is stealing
Now, that "bad debt" goes to "collection" - instead of slapping the
debtor in jail for theft. Terms for repayment are worked out,
considering all factors, while your credit, in essence, has been
suspended. Once you fulfill your restructured debt you may present
yourself before the "Throne of Creditors" again - you are now "clean"
and have "proven yourself" worthy of "their favor".
Before getting into inter-Faith discussions it is best to have a
working knowledge of the source of the Holy Scriptures (3)
and the awesome coherence that makes them stand "on its own two feet".
We are sure that you can take it from here and clarify any other areas
that you want to share with your girlfriend.

on August 6th, 2007 [Feast of the
While recently preparing a document about the False
Christ, I wanted to refer to the Church Fathers - specifically, the Didache
one of the earliest summaries of the teachings of the Church. So,
I reviewed the following book off my shelf: Michael W. Holmes, The
Apostolic Fathers in English
, 3rd ed., Baker Academic, 2006 - and
referred to the apocalyptic section of the Didache, paragraph
16, verses 3-8 (p. 171 of this book).
I was shocked when I read the
section - one that I had quoted previously, but using an older
of the writings of the Apostolic Fathers.
In the new translation,
it says (key part in bold):
"For in the last days the false
prophets and corrupters will
abound, and the sheep will be turned into wolves, and love will be
turned into hate. For as lawlessness increases, they will hate
persecute and betray one another. And then the deceiver of the
will appear as a son of God and will perform signs and wonders, and the
earth will be delivered into his hands, and he will commit abominations
the likes of which have never happened before. Then all humankind
come to the fiery test, and many will fall away and perish; but those
who endure in their faith will be saved by the accursed one himself.
And then there will appear the signs of the truth: first the sign of an
opening in heaven, then the sign of the sound of a trumpet, and
the resurrection of the dead - but not of all; rather, as it has been
said, 'The Lord will come, and all his saints with him.' Then
world see the Lord coming upon the clouds of heaven."
I was horrified at the bolded item; it says that those who endure
in faith to the end will be "saved by the accursed one himself" - the
false "son of God." There are some explanatory footnotes with
passage, but they shed confusion rather than light.
I wound up looking for an older translation of the same work and
found this (key part in bold):
"For in the last days false prophets
and corrupters shall be
multiplied, and the sheep shall be turned into wolves, and love shall
be turned into hate; for when lawlessness increases, they shall hate
and persecute and betray one another, and then shall appear the
world-deceiver as Son of God, and shall do signs and wonders, and the
earth shall be delivered into his hands, and he shall do iniquitous
things which have never yet come to pass since the beginning. Then
shall the creation of men come into the fire of trial, and many shall
be made to stumble and shall perish; but those who endure in
their faith shall be saved from under the curse itself.
And then shall appear the signs of the truth: first, the sign of an
outspreading in heaven, then the sign of the sound of the trumpet. And
third, the resurrection of the dead -- yet not of all, but as it is
said: 'The Lord shall come and all His saints with Him.' Then shall the
world see the Lord coming upon the clouds of heaven."
The older translation refers to the salvation of the faithful
"from under the curse", rather than by "the accursed one
That older reading makes sense.
The new translation, with its implication of salvation by the
"accursed one," seems to be widely accepted. I talked to my
about this problem, and he referred me to two alternative books of the
Apostolic Fathers' writings. I looked at one of them, a Loeb
version (Greek on the left, and English on the right) - edited by Bart
Ehrman. Before spending money on the book, I looked up section 16
the Didache - and found the same translation problem as I had in the
other modern edition.
Symbolically - certainly not intending it as a qualifier
of the writer in question but at a reality that does exist to a great
extent - we quote
the following passages of the New Testament:
1 John 14: 9 Jesus saith to him: Have I been so long a
time with you; and have you not known me?
2 Matthew 17 16 Then Jesus answered and said: O
unbelieving and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How
long shall I suffer you?
Due to our frequent repetition of it - our by-line should by now be
satan must serve God for He is the uncreated Creator and all of creation is subject
Perhaps the new translation is indeed the correct one. Did not
satan propitiate the Salvation of mankind by causing Judas Iscariot to
betray Jesus Christ unto His crucifixion - without being free, at all,
from the consequences of the atrocious sin he was committing?
This is not endorsing the blasphemy tacitly endorsed by the Vatican
that Judas Iscariot was in cahoots with Jesus Christ to save humanity (1)
. Judas Iscariot sinned
as an act of his free will but God - Who Is the Master of Creation -
used Judas' sin to free His Elect from the bondage of satan.
Therefore, the new translation may be showing the "fingerprint of God"
even if it was not the intent of the translator.
What greater "Grand Slam" for God than cause (and brethren, He can
cause anything He Wills to) the accursed one himself to be the
instrument He uses to deliver His Elect.
We are already tasting and rejoicing at such Magnificent display of
Divine Mercy and Glory! Hallelujah!
Thank you for the opportunity highlighting one more time our "by-line"
and the pleasure of savoring a bit of the Divine Grand Slam!

have a question about Genesis 22, the story of Abraham's willingness to
sacrifice Isaac at (what he believed to be) the command of God.
church tradition that I am aware of - Protestant, Anglican, Catholic,
and Orthodox - holds up this story as an exemplar of the faith of
Abraham, and of the corresponding faithfulness and mercy of God
(because of God's provision of a substitute sacrifice). This is
the text is preached everywhere, among liberals and conservatives alike.
During the first six
years of my life as an adult Christian (from mid-1978 till November
1984), I did not challenge or doubt this
preaching. I do now, and with these questions:
What about Isaac and his
own experience of the event?
What could have been
going through his mind as (Gen. 22:5-8) he and his father traveled
together to Mount Moriah?
doubt and dread would have been growing in Isaac's mind - especially if
human sacrifice was a common custom in that time and place?
would have Isaac have felt as his father bound him, put him on the
altar, and raised the knife above him to kill (Gen. 22:9-10)?
enough, God intervened (Gen. 22:11-19). Did Isaac hear and see
same mysterious and Divine things as Abraham did, or did he just see
his Dad hesitate, stop, free him, and sacrifice a ram that had wandered
the everyday world of this century, any father in a civilized country
who did as Abraham did in Gen. 22 would be sent to a hospital for the
criminally insane, and Child Protective Services would take the child
into care - with, one hopes, intensive therapy for the almost-certain
case of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder that the child would be
experiencing. In any age, a child who went through this
would be scarred for life - unless he were given a miraculous healing,
of the kind that is rare indeed.
put my question bluntly: If
this event is key to the faith of the Abrahamic
religions, to what extent is the received tradition of these faiths
based on (non-sexual) child abuse?
I have mentioned this
question privately to a few people over the years, and
never got a satisfactory answer.
I have never put the
preceding material into writing, since it is obviously heretical.
Every time we hear the word "heresy" or "heretics" we
cringe because its real meaning, to those who utter it, is: Heretics are those who believe what I do
not want them to believe because it becomes a threat to my power base.
This is not new - it goes back to Akhenaten
who has been dubbed by Egyptologists as "The Heretical Pharaoh" (1) even though his belief
was more coherent with Divine realities than the belief of the
religious establishment of the time. John the Baptist and Jesus
Christ were also considered heretics.
It is like the much used by the Vatican word: Excommunication. Frankly, anyone
who receives an Excommunication note from the Vatican should send them
a Thank You! note. Who in his
right mind wants to be associated with that group (2)? We said "group" - not Faith, since the Catholic Faith
(East and West) is the faith which contains the most revealed Truths of
any faith (3) on the face of the Earth.
With that clarification made, let us get back to your original
question: If this event is key to the faith of the
religions, to what extent is the received tradition of these faiths
based on (non-sexual) child abuse?
To understand what went through
Abraham's and Isaac's minds we must slip into their shoes and time frame. (4) Even today - in some cultures "father indeed knows
best" and if the father in question is a loving and God obeying father,
the son, even though naturally fearful, would submit with much less
trauma than most westerners of the 21st century would. Then, after the
11th hour deliverance, the son's faith and respect for his father would
have been greatly enhanced.
Unfortunately, said passage, as most are, is improperly presented from
the pulpits, thus the endemic disorientation of the followers of just
about any organized religion.
been given m de P to understand many of the workings of the spiritual
Domain. Therefore, we can say with assurance that the Abraham -
Isaac experience not only was logical but was an absolute necessity for
the salvation of humanity.
Man had to be willing offer to God the life
of his most prized
possession (yes, in those days children and wives were the father's
most prized "possessions") - the most awaited, and almost given up hope
for, son - BEFORE God would offer the human life of His Only
Son, Jesus Christ, so that humanity had an opportunity for
Salvation. (Salvation had been a given reality for mankind at creation,
but was lost because Eve tried to be God-like and Adam believed
her rather than God.)
Divine Law demanded that Abraham endure such a severe test of his

communication with the subject of: Another
insult to the Immaculate Heart of
I agree that the "fall" of Communism and the USSR was
"Triumph" of the Immaculate Heart. However, I would be cautious
about using the Daily Mail
article linked to as proof.
1. It is from the British press, and
they are very bad sources
of information (as bad as Fox News in the US, or worse). I have learned
this the hard way ... tracking down sensational bites from their
stories about the Roman Catholic Church or the Anglican world, as part
of my professional writing assignments, and finding out that the real
story has only a tenuous
connection to what the Brits reported.
2. The story is very badly written, so that (among other things) it is
unclear whether the state sponsored procreation is among the new
civilly married couples, or whether the participants are unlimited.
3. In the story, no fact is
allowed to speak for itself;
every paragraph is loaded with leading adjectives. The
problems extend to the photo caption: it claims that the picture is of
"millions of young Russians at a youth camp discerningly similar to the
Hitler Youth" ... and the main text of the story talks of a youth camp
attended by ten thousand.
4. The UK is now on bad terms with the Russians. This story reads
wartime (or pre-war) propaganda. Note the description of the
the Daily Mail story:
"Edward Lucas is author of the forthcoming The New Cold War
And How To Win It.
". In other words, let the reader beware.
Thank you for sharing with us your experience with, and

It was not our intention to use it as "proof" of the lack of the

physical "proof" we may publish is to assist our readers on seeing the
truth since most humans seem to have DNA ties with the Apostle Thomas.

It is like with Opus Dei - we have the document exposing their agenda [

You will read about this more as we deal with a trick question that
