Getting a Look at What Lies Beneath III

On May 12 2014, Pope Francis declared that He would baptize an alien if he were asked to do so.  I am not referring to an “illegal alien” as in one who has entered into a nation without permission or regard to the rule of law.  No, not that kind of alien.  I am referring to the E.T. variety of alien, meaning from outer space, not of our world.

Maybe its me, but could his declaration be assuming a little to much?  As far as we know we have never encountered alien life, even though more than a few have suggested so.  The problem here is that we are not talking about some governmental agency speaking in conspiracy theory about alien invaders.  We are talking about the head of the largest group of “so called” Christians in the world, yet his comments should not be surprising, for in 2010 a Vatican scientist suggested that aliens may have souls.  I don’t know about you, but I probably won’t shop where he purchased his bible.  Sadly this it is not just a conspiracy theory, but something the Roman Catholic Church are actively pursuing.


In 2014 Vatican scientist Jose Gabriel Funes, who is a Jesuit Catholic priest, had this to say about aliens  “Just as there is a multiplicity of creatures on earth, there can be other beings, even intelligent, created by God.  This is not in contrast to our faith because we can’t put limits on God’s creative freedom. Why can’t we speak of a ‘brother extra-terrestrial’? it would still be part of creation”.   Actually we can put limits on God’s creative freedom, for He put a limit on His creative freedom when He finished creation.  At that point everything that was made was made, by Jesus Christ, who is the Word of God.  One may be tempted to say that these statements (from the RCC) are anomalies,  they are not.  We know this by following the money trail.  By following any money trail you can usually tell where an organization puts it stock, and massive amounts of money have been spent by the Roman Catholic Church to locate aliens, such as in Mt. Graham Arizona where the University of Arizona has a telescope named L.U.C.I.F.E.R.

The name stands for Large binocular telescope near infrared — Utility with — Camera and — Integral — Field unit for — Extra-galactic — Research or L.U.C.I.F.E.R. for short.  Next door to this telescope is V.A.T.T., which stands for Vatican — Advanced — Technology — Telescope. As a matter of fact, the above mentioned priest made his comments, about “aliens” at a joint conference with NASA, where millions of dollars were given by the Vatican for higher resolution mirrors, not for their own telescope, but for L.U.C.I.F.E.R.  That’s right… Lucifer is helping the Roman Catholic Church look for aliens.  As I read what I just wrote, I realize how asinine it sounds, and it is, but it is exactly what they are doing.  The question is why?

I am not really interested in outlandish conspiracy theories, but in exposing the lies of the Roman Catholic Church, as to pull some precious souls from the fire.  What we must first understand is that the RCC does not look to God, His Word or His Savior for redemption. After my last piece where we discussed their ungodly mutation of Jesus atonement it should be clear they do not glorify the risen Savior of the world, Jesus Christ.  Yet here we see further evidence of their pursuit of “science” falsely called, the very doctrine of demons that pervade the end times, being put forth by those who have no love for the Truth.  The RCC is at the very least the beginnings of the one world religion, that will sweep over the earth in the last of days.  I am not the first one to declare this and won’t be the last, but because of my first hand experience with the RCC, I can offer some unique insight germane to this discussion.


In 1940 French statesmen Baron DePonnat stated “The Roman Catholic Church was born in blood, wallowed in blood, and has quenched its thirst in blood, and it is in letters of blood that its true history has been written”.  For some this may sound outlandish, but in 6 centuries of papal persecution (1200 to 1800) the Roman Catholic Church are responsible for the deaths of 50 million people who dared to disagree with their teaching and supposed authority.  The groups targeted are myriad and include Protestants, Jews, Muslims and Catholics who would not comply.  Many of these deaths were carried out in “inquisitions” or investigations, where those being investigated were tortured in ways to disgusting to recount.  All this was done in the name of Christ.    The RCC were personally responsible for the deaths of John Wycliffe, John Huss, and William Tindale, three men who merely believed in the infallibility of the scriptures and wanted people to be able to hear it in their own languages. One may logically ask why?

The reason is quite simple and can be found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church pg. 224 section 846, which declares the Catholic Church is the one and only Church, outside of which there is no salvation.  The Vatican has found itself the defenders of the faith, and although their reign of absolute power had been broken by the reformation and enlightenment period, what is born crooked will remain crooked, even if it appears to have straightened out. Although they use language of inclusion, they have still set themselves up as the one true church.  If a person has been baptized and follows Christ but does not adhere to Catholic doctrine, they deem them “separated brethren”.  Sounds nice, but it is merely an attempt to leave a channel open for an unbiblical return by those justified by faith alone.  We can see this happening all around us, as we are called to rally around Jesus Christ, yet as we have found their Jesus is not the Jesus from the Word of God.

September 15 of 2015 should serve as an example to us all.  On this date at the World Meeting of Families Conference (A Catholic Conference), Rick Warren gave the key note address.  Seen by many as a moment of Christian unity, nothing could be further from the truth.  Christian unity is to rally around the doctrine of Christ, not strengthening families, or protecting the unborn, as necessary as those are.  Rick Warren is not the only believer to make this error, but is a member of a parade that includes Joel Osteen, Benny Hinn, Tony Perkins and Russel Moore.  Warren has gone as far as to refer to Pope Francis as the pope of all Christians.  This move is not insignificant for a “Bible believing Christian”, who should be able to spot the blasphemous doctrine of the RCC.  Not only does the Vatican aim to be the one church of Christianity, they are aiming to be the sole religious entity that brings all religions together.


Ultimately the Roman Catholic Church is not merely interested in unifying Christianity.  They have much bigger plans, beginning with faith’s whose beginnings are tied to Abraham.  in the Catholic Catechism pages 222-223 sections 839 to 844, the Vatican includes Jews and Muslims in the plan of salvation, regardless of having faith in the Person or work of Jesus Christ.  Much schmoozing has been done over the years to gloss over the abhorrent doctrinal errors of the RCC, in order to achieve a sense of Christian unity, but ultimately that is not what they are after.  They are after ecumenical assimilation and their position on Jews and Muslims is just the tip of the iceberg.

“Those who, through not fault of their own, do no know the Gospel of Christ or His Church, but who nevertheless seek God with a sincere heart, and, moved by grace, try in their actions to do His will as they know through the dictates of their conscience–those too may achieve eternal salvation”
                                               (Catechism of the Catholic Church pg.224 Sec. 847)

Once more the unbiblical nature of their doctrine should be apparent, as no man achieves salvation (Ephesians 2:8-10) and no man can actually follow the dictates of conscience to satisfy the righteousness of God, this is why all men are without excuse and unable to achieve salvation (Romans 1:18-24).  We could chalk this up the RCC’s pattern of blatant unbiblical teaching, but they are literally moving on this point of doctrine to bring all faiths together.  

During the Pope’s recent visit to the U.S. he organized an interfaith prayer gathering including Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, Hindu’s and Buddhists.  Each one prayed or chanted to their god, or spoke a “nugget of truth” from their religion’s teaching.  At the end they all embraced, and one of the participants proclaimed “Lets lock the door and not leave until we achieve peace on earth”.  Isn’t that special?  It may sound great, but is antithetical to how world peace is to come, when Jesus Christ returns in person to deal with a world government, religion and multitudes of people united against Him.  The Catholic Church’s behavior should not be a surprise to anyone, given their doctrine and behavior.  Revelation 17:1-6 gives us a clear view of the end game…

Revelation 17:1-6 (NKJV) Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.” So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls,having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.  And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement. 

Interestingly the history of western civilization is one where kings and nations got into bed with the Roman Catholic Church, in fact you could be a king without the RCC blessing and backing.  The wine of the RCC’s fornication was glory to kill under the banner of Christ during the crusades, and many an ignorant man drank in the prospect of glory, only to be left worse than dead.  When looking on the religious life of the Roman Catholic Church you do not see the simplicity of Christ, but the adornment of gold, silver, precious stones, the finest array of robing and a chalice full of abominations.  For all the talk of humility the main stay is the majesty of human religion made up to hide the beast underneath.  And who could dispute the gleeful drunkenness of the blood of 50 millions Christian souls who dared to stand with Christ against the RCC’s anti-Christ doctrines.

Now it is not difficult to identify the womanThink of it, who is the most predominate biblical figure of the Roman Catholic Church?  It is not Jesus, or Peter or Paul, but Mary.  Mary has become the illustration most prevalent.  Even in iconography with Jesus, He is always an infant, she crowned not with humility but pomp, and glory as the “Queen of Heaven”.  The flock is told to look to her for prayer and even salvation.  Please understand I have no problem with the biblical Mary, a young virgin, humble before the will of Almighty God.  Yet she needed a Savior still, she needed to be born again, repent and place her faith in Jesus Christ the Lord.  The Catholic Mary is not that Mary, but the old Babylonian retread of Satan, the “Queen of heaven”, but she is not the queen she is the “Mother of Harlots” the representation of the end of Roman Catholic Church.

I realize that writing this may appear hostile and maybe even lacking in love.  Do not be deceived. I have many close friends and family who were born and raised as I, steeped in Catholicism.  What has been written should not lead you to assume that Romans Catholics can’t be saved.  Quite the contrary, my family is living proof they can be, by responding to God’s Word concerning Jesus Christ through true repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.  There are many redeemed brothers and sisters in Christ whom the Lord has planted in the RCC to lead others to faith.   I do believe that most Catholics are sincere in their practice of faith.  Therefore we must be about the business of declaring the true Gospel of Jesus Christ to every man woman and child in the RCC.  Now is the time and the rank and file Roman Catholic is ripe for the kingdom of God, for their religion can only leave them wanting.  Even though this is reason enough to know the facts, there is a far more important reason to understand the movements of the RCC.

In the last days the anti-Christ will come in very particular (II Thessalonians 2:7-12).  This takes place during the “apostacy” or the great falling away, which refers to those who were once settled in Christ, meaning those who were once not deceived are now deceived.  Let’s not degenerate into a discussion on whether you can’t or can lose your salvation. Let’s simply agree any Christian can fall into sin, therefore any Christian can be deceived.  This is why we are warned, for just as anyone of us can love the truth, anyone of us can grow cold to the truth.  Just as anyone of us can be on fire in love with Jesus, we can equally become lukewarm or cold if not sober.  Just as we can desire and encounter the nearness of His presence we can also leave our first love.  The point… We can be deceived.

In this knowledge lets remember how we started with the RCC looking for space aliens.  I certainly do not believe in “aliens” as in on other planets, but I do believe in a devil, who can transform himself into an angel of light for the purposes of deceiving humanity.  Do we remember he inhabited a snake in the garden? I also believe the word of God declares in the end of the age, in the midst of the great falling away that the anti-Christ does miracles with “all power, signs and lying wonders and with all unrighteous deception”.  These are done in those who don’t not receive a love for the truth, or being that it takes place during the apostasy, no longer have a love for the truth (II Thessalonians 2:9-10).  When we add to our understanding that God basically sends them a delusional mind, because they would not believe the simple truth about Jesus, we can assume believing in aliens or superhuman savior’s are not out of realm of thinking.

Let’s consider some of the lies the populace is believing these days.  Consider homosexuality, which 60 years ago was a crime punishable by imprisonment.  How did the mind of the world change concerning this sin?  Life is now imitating art.  Over the years, media has been used to suggest homosexuals are born that way, it is merely an alternative lifestyle, and you can’t help who you fall in love with.  Media has been used to warp the thinking of the world to believe that is a human right to choose to practice unnatural sex.  Lets consider evolution.  When “Origin of the Species” was published in 1859 it had great reception, more predicated on it being a new and outlandish idea, than good science.  Sadly it has a strong acceptance in science, but most of the world panned it as an unprovable theory.  Yet over the years, through continuous art and media presentation, evolution has become almost unquestioned as fact, when it is a huge error filled lie.  How did this happen? the merging of scientific agenda with media, for most people live the old adage “If its on T.V. it must be true”.

We could continue further but lets park on aliens and super-humans.  In the advent of on demand entertainment, people have been sold incredible CGI images of aliens and superheroes and robotic hybrids over the last four decades, in a pattern that is repeating a similar message:  Humanity can’t save itself from itself… Humanity can’t save itself from what is up  and out there… Humanity can’t save itself from what is has created.  Now this message is true but it proves Humanity needs someone, but what art is suggesting is not Jesus.  Art is suggesting we need to come together, make who is beyond our friend, and follow the superhuman that with make that all happen.  Now do you find it interesting that the Catholic Church is teaming up with atheistic scientist to find aliens?

Really Mike, are you serious?  To be honest It sounds far out to me as well, but remember that the lost and sometimes Christians, lack discernment, and will believe whatever they see and hear on media; isn’t that how President Obama got elected on “Hope and Change”.  The point of my writing is not to declare I have found the way the anti-Christ will dupe the world, because I am not certain, how it will happen.  What the scripture declares is that it will happen, and when it does it will be so overwhelmingly effective in its deceptiveness that it could deceive the most ardent believer, had they not the fullness of the Holy Spirit.  We must see the RCC for what it is and it is not God’s Kingdom.

Pray that none get sucked into the popular spirit in the church of America, which wants to hold hands with Rome instead of rebuke it for its blasphemy against the Lord Jesus .  Hold to the truth of God’s word, pray to be filled with the Holy Spirit and listen to the Lord Jesus for discernment.  Stay close to Jesus, in His light even what is lurking beneath the surface can’t stay hidden.
