Make no mistake:
miguel de Portugal holds the Vatican Administrators in the same contempt as our Lord and Master Jesus Christ held for the Temple Administrators 2000 years ago... and for the same exact reasons.
MARK Chapter 12
38... and he was saying to them in his teaching, Beware of the scribes, who will in long robes to walk, and love salutations in the market-places, 39 and first seats in the synagogues, and first couches in suppers,...
MATTHEW Chapter 23
13 Wo to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye shut up the reign of the heavens before men, for ye do not go in, nor those going in do ye suffer to enter.
14 Wo to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye eat up the houses of the widows, and for a pretense make long prayers, because of this ye shall receive more abundant judgment.
15 Wo to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye go round the sea and the dry land to make one proselyte, and whenever it may happen -- ye make him a son of gehenna twofold more than yourselves.
16 Wo to you, blind guides, who are saying, Whoever may swear by the sanctuary, it is nothing, but whoever may swear by the gold of the sanctuary -- is debtor!
17 Fools and blind! for which [is] greater, the gold, or the sanctuary that is sanctifying the gold? 18 And, whoever may swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whoever may swear by the gift that is upon it -- is debtor!
19 Fools and blind! for which [is] greater, the gift, or the altar that is sanctifying the gift? 20 He therefore who did swear by the altar, doth swear by it, and by all things on it; 21 and he who did swear by the sanctuary, doth swear by it, and by Him who is dwelling in it; 22 and he who did swear by the heaven, doth swear by the throne of God, and by Him who is sitting upon it.
23 Wo to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye give tithe of the mint, and the dill, and the cumin, and did neglect the weightier things of the Law -- the judgment, and the kindness, and the faith; these it behooved [you] to do, and those not to neglect.
24 Blind guides! who are straining out the gnat, and the camel are swallowing.
25 Wo to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye make clean the outside of the cup and the plate, and within they are full of rapine and incontinence. 26 Blind Pharisee! cleanse first the inside of the cup and the plate, that the outside of them also may become clean.
27 Wo to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye are like to whitewashed sepulchers, which outwardly indeed do appear beautiful, and within are full of bones of dead men, and of all uncleanness; 28 so also ye outwardly indeed do appear to men righteous, and within ye are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.
29 Wo to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the sepulchers of the prophets, and adorn the tombs of the righteous, 30 and say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. 31 So that ye testify to yourselves, that ye are sons of them who did murder the prophets; 32 and ye -- ye fill up the measure of your fathers.
33 Serpents! brood of vipers! how may ye escape from the judgment of the gehenna?
