IF IT IS NOT IN YOUR HEART TO BELIEVE 🙂 the simple testimony of a once poor, trusting, naive and painfully shy catholic girl, and the experiences of her fellow nuns, classmates, friends, fellow worshippers and acquaintances – such as in “Sister Charlotte A Nun’s testimony” and many other testimonies of escaped priests, nuns and Jesuits – some who are in hiding for fear of their lives. 😦 Ref. #(1) OR…
•IF YOU DOUBT THE VERACITY of a plethora of INTERNET WEB SITES, concerning the motives, management, and mind-chilling historic records encompassing 1500 years of blood drenched records, regarding the Pope, prelates, Jesuits, Dominicans and otherwise co-conspirators of the gargantuan, far reaching Octopoda-like and treacherous activities of the Babylonian Catholic Church, 😦 THEN…
•PERHAPS YOU WOULD BELIEVE THE HISTORY BOOKS in your local library. You might check out the book, “D’Aubigne’s History of the Reformation” (1794-1872) – a two volume set outlaying, step by step, Rome’s long road to hell. 😦
~~OR that of the Catholic monk, Martin Luther, who said before the Council of Worms: “I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.” 🙂
~~OR, “Foxe’s Book of Martyrs” first published in 1563, of eye-witness accounts, written during the Dark Ages (Be sure to get a copy, replete with gruesome torture illustrations). 😦 😦
~~OR, you may get lucky and find the Roman Catholic priest, Chiniquy’s book “50 Years In The Church of Rome,” whereby Lincoln read (as he did other sources) that cemented facts pertaining to the Jesuits’ large roll in fomenting the civil war. 😦 😦 😦
~~AND, be sure to pick up a copy of “The Two Babylonians” by Hislop – a 160 year old book, comparing The ancient Babylonian system of post-flood days with the artifacts and trappings of The Roman Catholic System, throughout their reign, 😦 OR…
•YOU MAY TRAIPSE ON DOWN to the bookstore “Barnes and Noble” to purchase one of several books by Vatican insider and Jesuit, Malachi Martin on “the Keys of This Blood,” which describes the geo-political nature of the Roman Church.
~~THEN be sure and scan over the book, “Unholy Trinity” by Mark Aarons and John Loftus (more on that later). These are just 2 of the vast array of documentation and recent reads on the past and present activities of this church’s nefarious undertakings (that is, the evidences journalist are able to find and gather up). 😦 IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE THE BOOKS YOU READ, then…
•YOU MIGHT WANT TO FIND AN OLD “TIME” Magazine (Feb 24, 1992), depicting Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II, on the cover (“Holy Alliance”) showing that they conspired together 😉 to bring down their common enemy, the Old Russian regime; providing solid proof that The Catholic Church is very serious about world dominance. 😦 * IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE newsstand magazines, then perhaps…
•you might DARE BELIEVE past TELEVISION SOURCES – so then believe Sam Donaldson, an ABC News Anchor Journalist – a well-known, well-trusted source for news from 1967 (and on), who hosted a special on the Vatican, regarding the same topics put forth by the well-documented Book “Unholy Trinity” by Aarons and Loftus, revealing how the Ustashi police, were Jesuits in disguise, in order to massacre the Serbs, and also describing the roll that the Vatican played in providing “The Rat Lines” infiltrating Nazi criminals into unsuspecting countries, throughout the world. You may be interested in his interview with a Vatican spokesperson about these crimes and atrocities committed, 😦 OR…
•perhaps you would believe THE 1933 NEWSPAPERS, with photos of Pope Pius XII passive face, signing a Concordant with Hitler’s ruling forces, conceding to the ruthless plans set out to exterminate the Jewish people, 😦 OR…
•perhaps you would believe the CATHOLIC CHURCH THEMSELVES, who admit their part in the torturous death of martyrs during the Dark Ages (millions martyred between 538 AD to 1798 AD), and also their part in the holocaust, during the period between 1941-45. (And many other such admissions). 😦 Or, if you doubt such evidences, then…
•WOULD YOU BELIEVE YOUR OWN EYES, as you look carefully at Rome’s opulence, compared to Christ’s austere life, with “no where to lay His head” (Matt.8:20) OR, even if you think that your own eyes deceive you… :/.
•would you believe GOD’s HOLY BIBLE, 🙂 with words against the Babylonian Catholic Church, such as, “that she would think to change times and laws” (Daniel 7:25) and BY HER OWN ADMISSION, she has done just that — RIPPING OUT GOD’s 2nd Commandment, where it says we are NOT to WORSHIP “IDOLS;” as well as REPLACING THE 4TH commandment which says we are to “remember” to worship God on the 7th day (Exodus 20:8-11,) BUT WHERE ROME SUBSTITUTED her “Sun” worship day (SUNDAY) for GOD’s 7th DAY SABBATH. Then SPLITTING the 10th commandment INTO 2 separated PIECES, in order that the changed Catholic commandments come out to 10 (instead of 9) – defying A DIRECT COMMAND FROM GOD to NOT “add” OR “take away” the words of His Holy Book, the Bible 😦 😦 😦 (Rev.22:18-19). See side by side comparison AT THIS LINK BELOW, ref. #(2)
•WOULD YOU BELIEVE THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH’s OWN WORDS, 😉 (too many to list here) but are as given below in reference #(3). 😮
And don’t forget to STUDY the GREAT PROPHECIES of the BIBLE, especially in Daniel 2:36-47 & 7:17-23; whereby the history of the world’s prominent civilizations (beginning with ancient Babylon) are laid out in succession, including the dawning of the Roman Pagan regime (“dragon’s” scepter), who later gave “their seat and authority” to the Roman Bishop (see also Rev.13:2); and on down to the VERY “TOES” of that giant statue (PRESENT DAY) depicting this history with 100% fulfillment (as well as 100% ACCURACY in all prophecy), to the very crumbling end! 🙂 🙂 See some of the “older” COMMENTARIES in reference #(4)
•IF you BELIEVE NOT NOW, then surely you WILL BELIEVE as you BEGIN to “GNAW YOUR TONGUE” during the time of “plagues” in Revelation 16:10, 11 -,”And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon THE SEAT of THE BEAST; and his kingdom was FULL of DARKNESS; and they GNAWED their TONGUES for pain, And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds” 😦 😦 (read also Rev.9:20-21).
~~HOWEVER, God’s door of mercy is still open, 🙂 🙂 for He has given us warning in Revelation 18:4 – pleading with His children (still trapped within that cesspool of a system bound for hell and willing to pull all those within her ranks, down with her) to “come out of her MY PEOPLE [still in the PAPAL churches], that ye be not partakers of her sins, and THAT YE RECEIVE NOT of her PLAGUES.” 😦
IT IS NOT TOO LATE, my friend. You can choose to close your eyes, stop your ears, and shut your mind to those speaking the truth – to the point that MANY shall have “strong delusions” and believe “a lie” (2 Thess.2:10-11 “….because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved….”). 😦
~~OR, you can investigate for yourself the vast array of garbage and filth spilling out of, and behind her hidden doors – no longer can she just shut the FACTS up in her cavernous Vatican vault, deep within that gothic monolithic system, containing her convents of shame and degradation. MORE and MORE will be revealed (of not only Rome, but of GOD, as well) the closer we come to Jesus’ GLORIOUS 2nd COMING! 🙂 🙂
IF and WHEN that YOU START TO NOTICE the overwhelming evidence, GOD is WAITING with OPEN ARMS. Accept His simple request upon your life: “take My yoke upon you, for it is light and easy to bear.” 🙂 The Roman yoke placed upon you is too heavy to bear, and you will be crushed beneath its load of guilt and lies 😦 (MATTHEW 11:29-30).
~~GOD SAYS in ISAIAH 1:18 “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool” – Psalm 34:8 “O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.” 🙂 🙂 🙂 THEN you will have “AN HEART To BELIEVE” for God will take away your “STONY HEART” and give you a NEW HEART of “FLESH” — Ezekiel 11:19; 2 Corinthians 3:3; Hebrews 8:10

Sabbath Statements by the Catholic Church
“Is not every Christian obliged to sanctify Sunday and to abstain on that day from unnecessary servile work? Is not the observance of this law among the most prominent of our sacred duties? But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify.” James Cardinal Gibbons, The Faith of Our Fathers (1917 edition), p. 72-73 (16th Edition, p 111; 88th Edition, p. 89).
“For example, nowhere in the Bible do we find that Christ or the Apostles ordered that the Sabbath be changed from Saturday to Sunday. We have the commandment of God given to Moses to keep holy the Sabbath day, that is the 7th day of the week, Saturday. Today most Christians keep Sunday because it has been revealed to us by the [Roman Catholic] church outside the Bible.” Catholic Virginian, October 3, 1947, p. 9, article “To Tell You the Truth.”
“Most Christians assume that Sunday is the biblically approved day of worship. The Catholic Church protests that it transferred Christian worship from the biblical Sabbath (Saturday) to Sunday, and that to try to argue that the change was made in the Bible is both dishonest and a denial of Catholic authority. If Protestantism wants to base its teachings only on the Bible, it should worship on Saturday.” Rome’s Challenge http://www.immaculateheart.com/maryonline
Who Made Sunday Holy?
“Question: How prove you that the church had power to command feasts and holydays?”
“Answer: By the very act of changing the Sabbath into Sunday, which Protestants allow of and therefore they fondly contradict themselves by keeping Sunday strictly, and breaking most other feasts commanded by the same church.”
“Question: Have you any other way of proving that the church has power to institute festivals of precept?”
“Answer: Had she not such power, she could not a done that in which all modern religionists agree with her; -she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday the first day of the week, for the observance of Saturday the seventh day of the week, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority.” Stephen Keenan, A Doctrinal Catechism On the Obedience Due to the Church, 3rd edition, Chapter 2, p. 174 (Imprimatur, John Cardinal McCloskey, Archbishop of New York).
“Question – Which is the Sabbath day?”
“Answer – Saturday is the Sabbath day.”
“Question – Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?”
“Answer – We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church, in the Council of Laodicea (A.D. 364), transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday.” Peter Geiermann, C.S.S.R., The Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, p. 50, 3rd edition, 1957.
“Nowhere in the Bible is it stated that worship should be changed from Saturday to Sunday…Now the Church…instituted, by God’s authority, Sunday as the day of worship. This same Church, by the same divine authority, taught the doctrine of Purgatory long before the Bible was made. We have, therefore, the same authority for Purgatory as we have for Sunday.” Martin J. Scott, Things Catholics Are Asked About, 1927 edition, p. 136.
“Written by the finger of God on two tables of stone, this Divine code (ten commandments) was received from the Almighty by Moses amid the thunders of Mount Sinai…Christ resumed these Commandments in the double precept of charity–love of God and of the neighbour; He proclaimed them as binding under the New Law in Matthew 19 and in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5)…The (Catholic) Church, on the other hand, after changing the day of rest from the Jewish Sabbath, or seventh day of the week, to the first, made the Third Commandment refer to Sunday as the day to be kept holy as the Lord’s Day…He (God) claims one day out of the seven as a memorial to Himself, and this must be kept holy…” The Catholic Encyclopaedia, vol. 4, “The Ten Commandments”, 1908 edition by Robert Appleton Company; and 1999 Online edition by Kevin Knight, Imprimatur, John M. Farley, Archbishop of New York.
“Question. What warrant have you for keeping Sunday preferably to the ancient sabbath which was Saturday?
“Answer. We have for it the authority of the Catholic church and apostolic tradition.”
“Question. Does the Scripture anywhere command the Sunday to be kept for the Sabbath?”
“Answer. The Scripture commands us to hear the church (St.Matt.18:17; St. Luke 10:16), and to hold fast the traditions of the apostles. 2 Thess 2:15. But the Scripture does not in particular mention this change of the Sabbath.”
“Perhaps the boldest thing, the most revolutionary change the Church ever did, happened in the first century. The holy day, the Sabbath, was changed from Saturday to Sunday. ‘The day of the Lord’ was chosen, not from any direction noted in the Scriptures, but from the (Catholic) Church’s sense of its own power…People who think that the Scriptures should be the sole authority, should logically become 7th Day Adventists, and keep Saturday holy.” St. Catherine Church Sentinel, Algonac, Michigan, May 21, 1995.
“Is Saturday the seventh day according to the Bible and the Ten Commandments? I answer yes. Is Sunday the first day of the week and did the Church change the seventh day – Saturday – for Sunday, the first day? I answer yes. Did Christ change the day’? I answer no!”
“Faithfully yours, J. Card. Gibbons.” James Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishop of Baltimore, Md. (1877-1921), in a signed letter.
“Question. – How prove you that the Church hath power to command feasts and holy days?”
“Answer. – By the very act of changing Sabbath into Sunday which Protestants allow of; and therefore they fondly contradict themselves, by keeping Sunday strictly, and breaking most other feasts commanded by the same Church.”
“Question. – How prove you that?”
“Answer. – Because by keeping Sunday, they acknowledge the Church’s power to ordain feasts, and to command them under sin: and by not keeping the rest by her commanded, they again deny, in fact, the same power.” An Abridgment of the Christian Doctrine, composed by Henry Tuberville, p. 58.”
“Some theologians have held that God likewise directly determined the Sunday as the day of worship in the New Law, that He Himself has explicitly substituted the Sunday for the Sabbath. But this theory is now entirely abandoned. It is now commonly held that God simply gave His Church the power to set aside whatever day or days she would deem suitable as Holy Days. The (Roman Catholic) Church chose Sunday, the first day of the week, and in the course of time added other days as holy days.” John Laux, A Course in Religion for Catholic High Schools and Academies, 1936 edition, vol. 1, p. 51.
“The Catholic church for over one thousand years before the existence of a Protestant, by virtue of her divine mission, changed the day from Saturday to Sunday…The Protestant World at its birth found the Christian Sabbath too strongly entrenched to run counter to its existence; it was therefore placed under the necessity of acquiescing in the arrangement, thus implying the (Catholic) Church’s right to change the day, for over three hundred years. The Christian Sabbath is therefore to this day, the acknowledged offspring of the Catholic Church as spouse of the Holy Ghost, without a word of remonstrance from the Protestant World.” James Cardinal Gibbons in the Catholic Mirror, September 23, 1983.
“Protestantism, in discarding the authority of the (Roman catholic) Church, has no good reasons for its Sunday theory, and ought logically to keep Saturday as the Sabbath.” John Gilmary Shea, American Catholic Quarterly Review, January 1883.
“St John speaks of the Lord’s day (Rev 1:10) but he does not tell us what day of the week that was, much less does he tell us what day was to take the place of the Sabbath ordained in the commandments. St.Luke speaks of the disciples meeting together to break bread on the first day of the week. Acts 20:7. And St. Paul (1 Cor.16:2) orders that on the first day of the week the Corinthians should lay in store what they designated to bestow in charity on the faithful in Judea: but neither the one or the other tells us that this first day of the week was to be henceforth a day of worship, and the Christian Sabbath; so that truly the best authority we have for this ancient custom is the testimony of the church. And therefore those who pretend to be such religious observers of Sunday, whilst they take no notice of other festivals ordained by the same church authority, show that they act more by humor, than by religion; since Sundays and holidays all stand upon the same foundation, namely the ordinance of the (Roman Catholic) church.” Catholic Christian Instructed, 17th edition, p. 272-273.
#(4) “Older” COMMENTARIES:
Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible, LL.D., F.S.A., (1762-1832)
Daniel 7:25 – He shall speak great words against the Most High – Sermones quasi Deus loquetur; “He shall speak as if he were God.” So St. Jerome quotes from Symmachus. To none can this apply so well or so fully as to the popes of Rome. They have assumed infallibility, which belongs only to God. They profess to forgive sins, which belongs only to God. They profess to open and shut heaven, which belongs only to God. They profess to be higher than all the kings of the earth, which belongs only to God. And they go beyond God in pretending to loose whole nations from their oath of allegiance to their kings, when such kings do not please them! And they go against God when they give indulgences for sin. This is the worst of all blasphemies!
And shall wear out the saints – By wars, crusades, massacres, inquisitions, and persecutions of all kinds. What in this way have they not done against all those who have protested against their innovations, and refused to submit to their idolatrous worship? Witness the exterminating crusades published against the Waldenses and Albinenses. Witness John Huss, and Jerome of Prague. Witness the Smithfield fires in England! Witness God and man against this bloody, persecuting, ruthless, and impure Church!
And think to change times and laws – Appointing fasts and feasts; canonizing persons whom he chooses to call saints; granting pardons and indulgences for sins; instituting new modes of worship utterly unknown to the Christian Church; new articles of faith; new rules of practice; and reversing, with pleasure, the laws both of God and man. – Dodd.
Until a time and times and the dividing of time – In prophetic language a time signifies a year; and a prophetic year has a year for each day. Three years and a half will amount to one thousand two hundred and sixty years, if we reckon thirty days to each month, as the Jews do. …
In 1798 the French republican army under General Berthier [Napoleon’s general] took possession of the city of Rome, and entirely superseded the whole papal power. This was a deadly wound,* though at present it appears to be healed; but it is but skinned over, and a dreadful cicatrice remains. The Jesuits, not Jesus, are now the Church’s doctors.
*MY NOTE: YES, “The DEADLY WOUND” showed evidence that it was “HEALED” When Reagan conspired with the Pope to bring down Communism (see “Time” magazine, issue date:2-24-1992, as pictured below). Before that, Protestant America had never recognized the authority of the pope. Compare Revelation 13:3, with vs. 16-18 – The “mark” is a spiritual mark in our “forehead” through the keeping of the BEAST’s 10 Commandments; OR see Rev.14:1,12 (with Ezekiel 9:4-6 & Exodus 20) the “mark” of God’s 10 Commandments. The “mark in their right hand” represents your own “works” (Rev.13:16). GOD’s LAST DAY Church will all be symbolic “left-handed” “Benjamites,” Jacob’s last son born on the border to Canaan (Gen.35) – Our left hand will hold the right hand of Jesus; and by HIS WORKS (His RIGHT HAND) we will get the victory! Our works (through Jesus) will be compared with the “right hand” works of the wicked. We can never claim victory through our works, so God’s people will never have a spiritual “mark in their right hand” – nor “left hand” — but only in the “forehead” (Rev.14:1; Eze.9:4).
