Brother Michael and Brother Peter,
I just finished reading the updates on the email exchange portion of your website. It brought something to mind. The story in Daniel chapter 3, about Sidrach, Misach, and Abdenago. There is quite a parallel with what is going on today. When you read the story you will notice that King Nabuchodonosor never told the people to stop worshiping their gods or God; he only ordered them, at the sound of the bell, to acknowledge and adore the false god. The same is happening today, the novus ordo church isn't telling anyone to give up the worship of their god, (so they think) but they must accept all the false gods/religions as well. How slick is the devil, as he tells everyone, have your God, but accept everyone else's too. And as the people follow, they deny the One True God, when they accept the false gods/religions. Sidrach, Misach and Abdenago knew that if they were to obey the order, they would have denied God and apostatized from the faith. If only people today had the faith to see it.
Yes, that’s a very good point. People don’t realize that what the Vatican II antipopes and heresies have done is – without even bringing the “gods” of the heathens into the temple itself – they have caused the people (who imbibe the new religion) to fall into an effective worship of the gods of the heathens by an acceptance of their false religions (and therefore the false gods they worship). So, for those who imbibe the new religion, it’s as if they have brought the idols of the heathens into the temple to be worshipped alongside the true God – without even literally having done so. If people really saw things the way they are and the way that God sees them, they would realize that this what the Vatican II antipopes have done: they have put the worship of false gods alongside the worship of the true God. That was their mission from Satan. We see this, for instance, in these quotes:
Paul VI, Address, Aug. 24, 1974: “Religious and cultural differences in India, as you have said, are honored and respected… We are pleased to see that this mutual honor and esteem is practiced…” (L’Osservatore Romano, Sept. 12, 1974, p. 2.)
Paul VI says that religious differences are honored in India and that he is pleased to see this. This means that he honors the worship of false gods.
Paul VI, Address to Dalai Lama, Sept. 30, 1973: “We are happy to welcome Your Holiness today… You come to us from Asia, the cradle of ancient religions and human traditions which are rightly held in deep veneration.” (L’Osservatore Romano, Oct. 11, 1973, p. 4.)
People should think about this statement. Paul VI tells us that it is right to hold false religions which worship false gods in deep veneration. This means that it’s right to venerate false gods! Thus, Paul VI worshipped the false gods of these religions, and he was encouraging others to worship them as well by respecting such idolatry.
Paul VI, Message to Pagan Shinto Priests, March 3, 1976: “We know the fame of your temple, and the wisdom that is represented so vividly by the images contained therein.” (L’Osservatore Romano, March 11, 1976, p. 12.)
This may be the most evil, revealing and heretical statement that the apostate Paul VI ever uttered. He is praising the wisdom contained in the images in the pagan Shinto temple; in other words, he is praising the idols of the Shintoists themselves!
