The Destruction of the Faith
We Cannot Allow It!
Sooner or later the "Biggest Guns" against the Faith, moral decadence and perversion of the clergy, were going to be called into action. Now soon, the world may reach a point where the Faith will be almost extinguished giving fulfillment to the prophecy of our Lord Jesus Christ:...when the Son of Man comes, will He find Faith on earth? [Luke 18:8]
As the sexual abuse scandal within the Roman Catholic Church dominated the media and profoundly impacted the lives of the faithful, we frequently heard terms such as: attacks to the Church and anti Catholic propaganda without any basis.
Neither allegation is correct.
The complete truth about the scandalous events we are hearing about is uglier and more sinister than what has been published so far, however, the ultimate target is not the Church... satan's ultimate target is the Faith!
We must not confuse the "Faith" with the "Church". Just like the Sabbath was created for man and not man for the Sabbath [Mark 2:27] - the Church was created to nurture the Faith in man. Man was not created for the Church; man was created for God, and through Faith, nurtured by the Church, man is to reach his only true goal - God.
The object of our Faith is and must always be, God and His Word. We cannot allow the wickedness of certain Church leaders, ensnared by satan, to harm the Faith.
Yes, what we hear about the deviant priests and criminal actions by the Hierarchy is indeed true, BUT, the Faith that God has managed to preserve within the Magisterial Teachings of the Church are based on spiritual truths and must remain untainted.
For example, the reality of the Eucharistic Presence of Our Lord, the immense value of the Sacrament of Reconciliation with its concomitant Absolution, the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Matrimony, etc. are Holy and are true supernatural assistance for mankind as it walks through this valley of tears called life.
Please, we beg of you - Do not allow the perversion of men separate you from God. Literally hang on to the tenets of Faith taught by the Catholic and Orthodox Churches. What we are witnessing is part of satan's snare to kill the little faith left in the world.
Yes, the Church must purge itself of the sick priests and evil members of the Hierarchy but not of the Faith that the Holy Spirit has managed to preserve for us in spite of 1600 years of Ecclesiastical betrayals to the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.
As Our Lady has been asking us for decades - the faithful must pray for the priests and Hierarchy - yes - the more wicked they may be the more we must pray for them. This is a command from God. [Luke 6: 27-36]
As you have seen, the clergy is a prime target of satan and need prayerful assistance. This does not mean that they are to be allowed to rape the Church and the faithful; this must be stopped at the first sign, but the offenders must be prayed for and we must offer acts of reparation on their behalf.
....and brothers and sisters, if there ever was a time when strong faith and much prayer was needed - That Time is Now!.
If we add to the above cited damage the fact that the Evangelization effort by Christian Churches has been a failure, as is irrefutable proven by the state of the world today, the logical result will be the death of the little Faith left in the world.
Even most of the faithful diehards will succumb when they are reminded of it by the enemies of God, now armed with concrete proof of the lies and deceitful ways of the Church leadership.
By this time the faithful may not have much strength left to defend the teachings of the Faith in matters of morals, and much less sustain his/her own faith. Despair begins to set in...
But don't despair... help is on the way...
The remedy for this apparently inevitable death of the Faith lies in a deeper understanding of God and His relationship with His creatures. The reader will find the necessary answers to counter the above attacks in the following Documents of The M+G+R Foundation Domain:Heaven warned us about the decaying clergy through the Message of Las Salette. Study Her words and your Faith in God and His Most Holy Mother will be rekindled.
In Spiritual Dysfunction, Its Identification, Treatment and Cure you will learn how to separate psychological from spiritual events within man, as well as how they interrelate.
In The Spiritual World, How It Influences Our Behavior you will learn about the interaction of the Physical and Spiritual worlds with the human being, and what went wrong with so many priests.
Also, by realizing how important is for satan to Destroy Fátima, your Faith will be strengthened.
In Marian Apparitions and the Roman Catholic Church - Obviously The Response Was Not Appropriate you will clearly see that God did not fail man. The depths to which civilization has fallen is because the Shepherds entrusted by God to shepherd His flock have failed God as His Mother has repeatedly charged. However, we must remain firm in the Faith!
The ultimate self defense lies in assiduous Prayer. Do not relent, even if your faith is failing and moral decadence surrounds you, keep on praying and seeking God. He will not abandon you because:You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High, who abide in the shadow of the Almighty, say to the Lord, "My refuge and my fortress, my God, in Whom I trust"...
...Because he clings to Me, I will deliver him; I will set him on high because he acknowledges My Name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in distress; I will deliver him and glorify him; with length of days I will gratify him and will show him My Salvation." [Psalm 91: 1-2, 14-16]
Whatever you do, see or hear - do not allow your Faith to falter. Hang on to Our Lord's Tunic and to Our Mother's Mantle - hang on for dear life. They are real! It is true; we know!
