George Bush becoming a catholic

19 07 2008

A friend of President Bush, Fr. George William Rutler, who converted to Catholicism in 1979, stated that Bush respects how Catholicism was founded by Christ who appointed Peter as the first Pope. “I think what fascinates him about Catholicism is its historical plausibility,” said the priest. “He does appreciate the systematic theology of the church, its intellectual cogency and stability.” Fr. Rutler also mentioned that the president “is not unaware of how evangelicalism — by comparison with Catholicism — may seem more limited both theologically and historically.” – Catholic News Agency

It is no surprise that the great betrayal of so called a Christian leader, to turn his back on the biblical principles that form the foundation of the nation America, to the Apostate Catholic Church. I am not surprised that George Bush Jr actually lean towards the Catholic, as he had followed the barbaric manners of the Papacy to invade Middle East for his own gain just as the Popes did before him in the Crusades.





Pope’s criticism of Atheism and Modern Christianity

Benedict also critically questioned modern Christianity, saying its focus on individual salvation had ignored Jesus’s message that true Christian hope involves salvation for all.

While i agree with Benedict in his assessment on the danger of Atheism and its roots, i find his assessment of Modern Christianity erroneous. Modern Christianity does not ignore Salvation for all, as God desires all to be saved (Sovereign Will of God) but we cannot ignore that God will not override Man’s decision to reject Him. In view of the principles of Free Will, and Omniscient of God, Modern Christianity also believes in the fact, the group of people will be smaller that will walk through the narrow gate. The Pope’s ignoring this, is not surprising, especially considering the ecumenical efforts and teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. While the Church should be focus on individual salvation, they must not ignore the mission field and presenting the Message of Hope through Jesus as the Good News to all, both rich and poor, uneducated and the learned.

“This ‘intermediate phase’ we know all too well, and we also know how it then developed, not ushering in a perfect world, but leaving behind a trail of appalling destruction,” Benedict wrote

Not particular surprised by Benedict’s abhorrence of Lenin and Karl Marx’s philosopher, considering he himself a fanatic fascism follower of Hitler’s Nazi. While condemning Karl Marx and the atheistic revolution, he simply ignores the other evil which he himself was part of, Nazism, and fascism. And through Fascism, Aryan teachings have taken roots in many parts of America, and Europe, and equally as destructive as the effects of Atheism has around the world.

Latest News from the Straits Times

VATICAN CITY – ISRAEL and the Vatican are close to concluding a historic bilateral accord on the legal and financial status of the Roman Catholic Church in Israel, the country’s ambassador said.

‘We are very close to the conclusion of this historic accord,’ Mr Oded Ben Hur was quoted as saying by Italy’s ANSA news agency at a debate organised by a pontifical university in Rome on Monday.

The text under negotiation is the economic section of the fundamental agreement on relations the Vatican and Israel signed in December 1993.

‘About 85 per cent of the text has been examined and approved by the representatives of Israel and the Vatican,’ said the ambassador.

Negotiations on the text resumed in 2004 after a 10-year hiatus, and Mr Ben Hur said the next round of talks will take place on Dec 13 in Israel.

The two sides are seeking to hammer out an agreement concerning the legal and tax status of Church property in Israel and the commercial activities of Christian communities there.

Everything is moving according to what so many have taught about the bilateral relations will increase between the Vatican and Israel, and out of the former head of the Roman Empire, will an anti Christ come. Well a lot of people (Christians and even within the Catholic Community) speculated* the next Pope in place will be the Anti Christ.
