Exposed - the Jesuit plan to counter the protestant reformation. As we draw close to the 500 year anniverary of the reformation on 31st October 2017, the agenda to re-unite Christian churches under the Roman Catholic Apostate Religion is underway. Despite a long history of persecution, matyrdom and heretical doctrines, some groups of protestant Christians are embracing this Papal Templar scheme with open arms.
I have said all these things to you to keep you from falling away. They will put you out of the synagogues. Indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God. And they will do these things because they have not known the Father, nor me. But I have said these things to you, that when their hour comes you may remember that I told them to you. John 16: 1-4 “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.
If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. But all these things they will do to you on account of my name, because they do not know him who sent me. John 15: 18-21

At a time when healthcare reform remains a hot-button issue in the United States, a Vatican summit is reminding the world that fully one-third of the human population has no access to healthcare or medicines at all, and around the world the cost of drugs and medical treatment often pushes people into poverty.
ROME - All over the world, questions abound about who has access to healthcare, and how they pay for it. In the U.S., debt caused by healthcare costs contributes to 62 percent of personal bankruptcy cases. Globally, 100 million people slide into poverty as a result of essential medical care payments.
It’s worth remembering, however, that fully one third of the world’s population has no access to needed medicines to begin with.
In the case of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, which affects 25 million people in Africa, those who need treatment often have to pay 18 times more than in the United States because of the monopoly of pharmaceutical industries. Hepatitis C affects 1 in five people around the world, for most of whom it’s a death sentence because they can’t afford the medicines that would cure them in just eight weeks.
Life expectancy at birth in sub-Saharan Africa is 46 years, while in countries such as Italy it’s over 80. In the former, however, an estimated 6 million children last year didn’t reach the age of five.

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis on Thursday rebuked those who deny the science behind global warming and urged negotiators at climate talks in Germany to avoid falling prey to such "perverse attitudes" and instead accelerate efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions.
Francis issued a message to the Bonn meeting, which is working to implement the 2015 Paris accord aimed at capping global emissions.
In it, Francis called climate change "one of the most worrisome phenomena that humanity is facing." He urged negotiators to take action free of special interests and political or economic pressures, and to instead engage in an honest dialogue about the future of the planet.
Francis didn't cite any countries by name, but the United States has announced it is withdrawing from the Paris accord, and President Donald Trump has nominated several people in his administration who question scientists' conclusions that human activity is behind the global rise in temperatures. At the same time, the U.S. administration has promoted the use of fossil fuels like coal for U.S. energy needs.
In his landmark 2015 environmental encyclical, Francis said global warming is "mainly" due to human activity and he called for fossil fuels to be progressively phased out without delay.
In his message, the Argentine pope denounced that efforts to combat climate change are often frustrated by those who deny the science behind it or are indifferent to it, those who are resigned to it or think it can be solved by technical solutions, which he termed "inadequate."
"We must avoid falling into these four perverse attitudes, which certainly don't help honest research and sincere, productive dialogue," he said.

VATICAN CITY -- Pope Francis received some hot new wheels on Wednesday in the form of a white-and-yellow Lamborghini but he won't be using it on the tree-shaded roads of the Vatican gardens.
The donated Lamborghini Huracan, which normally sells for more than $200,000, was signed by the pope outside his Vatican residence and will be auctioned by Sotheby's, with proceeds given to the pontiff to help the needy.
The Vatican said all the money would go to projects to help Christians return to rebuild their homes in Iraq's Nineveh Plains that were destroyed by Islamic State militants.
They will also go to help female victims of human trafficking and forced prostitution and to two Italian groups which provide medical services in central Africa.
Francis has shunned the papal limousines used by his predecessors in favour of a simple blue Ford Focus.

Ronald Reagan once said that an economist is someone who sees something happen in practice and wonders if it could work in theory. The new book, Pope Francis and the Caring Society, appears like a team of economists forced to study the encyclical Laudato Si’ in theory and then wonder if it might work in practice. Most of the team members answer the question with a qualified no.
Published by the Independent Institute, the work was written as a sincere effort to heed the pontiff’s call for “dialogue” on the economic and ecological issues underlying the controversial encyclical. It makes no attempt to discuss the papal document’s equally contentious theological issues. Rather, it provides the sound economic and ecological teaching that is missing in the debate. Such issues need to be addressed urgently to dispel confusion.
The foreword by the late Michael Novak notes that the book initiates a debate that has the added benefit of educating its readers on the Church’s teaching on many issues like natural law and other moral and economic principles that would otherwise remain clouded. This alone makes the book valuable.
The second annual Adventists for Social Justice Summit, entitled “Crossing the Divide” occurred on November 3-5, 2017 on the campus of Washington Adventist University. The ASJ has come a long way since its creation a year ago. In addition to hosting its second summit with attendance nearing 200, there are now also a dozen or so local chapters, and an active Facebook group where over 5,000 members share and discuss issues affecting the world.
The Summit began with vespers Friday evening, with keynote speaker Dr. Soong-Chan Rah, professor of church growth and evangelism at North Park University in Chicago.
Dr. Rah spoke on “The Need for Lament in Troubled Times.” In both his ASJ presentation and his recent book, Prophetic Lament, he discusses that “what we’re missing in our pursuit to change the world is just the right amount of disruption.”
“There are times when disruption and confusion are actually a good thing. Sometimes God brings these into our lives because otherwise, why would we want to change?”
Lament is the disruption we require, continued Rah. Lament appears frequently in the Bible; 40% of the Psalms are laments. But we, as Christians, want to jump to celebration without first focusing on suffering. In a typical Christian hymnal, 80-85% are celebratory hymns. In contemporary Christian music, only 5-10% are about lament.
Because we’re missing lament in our story, we have the inability to recognize injustice and to bring God’s justice to our society, said Rah.

Bishop Robert McElroy says gun control is a social justice issue of interest to the US Catholic bishops, and criticized the gun lobby for its "organized opposition to gun control, taking the position that any limitation against guns is a limitation on the core rights of individuals." He also said American military action cannot have any positive role in resolving the current crisis around North Korea.
ROME- Gun control is a social justice issue of concern to America’s Catholic bishops, according to Bishop Robert McElroy of San Diego, who was recently at a Vatican conference to talk about the contributions the Catholic Church can make regarding nuclear disarmament.
“One of the problems is the organized opposition to gun control, taking the position that any limitation against guns is a limitation on the core rights of individuals,” McElroy told Crux on Friday.

“When all the firsthand accounts from FBI agents, CIA operatives, local law enforcement and citizen eye witnesses are considered in the aggregate, it’s obvious that the CIA did it. No one else had the capability to pull of such a convoluted scheme. Nor did any other party have the necessary power and influence to cover it up for 50 plus years. What very few folks are aware of is the extent to which the MOSSAD and MI6 were also deeply involved. Particularly in planning the assassination.”
— Former U.S. Military Officer & Veteran Intelligence Analyst
There is now a considerable amount of high integrity evidence available in the public domain which clearly demonstrates that President John F. Kennedy was killed by a massive and complex conspiracy coordinated by the Central Intelligence Agency (C.I.A.).
In fact, the abundance of JFK assassination information and data, that can be found on the Internet alone, proves conclusively that the C.I.A. was directly responsible for that military-style murder in Dallas on November 22, 1963.
What has also emerged from the volumes of evidence, both hard and circumstantial, is that Lee Harvey Oswald played no part in the assassination plot.
VATICAN CITY – Pope Francis has reaffirmed the "primary" role of using one's conscience to navigate tough moral questions in his first comments since he was accused of spreading heresy by emphasizing conscience over hard and fast Catholic rules.
Francis issued a video message Saturday to a conference on his controversial 2016 document on family life, "The Joy of Love." The document has badly divided the Catholic Church, with some commentators warning that it risks creating a schism given its cautious opening to letting divorced and civilly remarried Catholics receive Communion.
Francis told the conference that priests must inform the consciences of the faithful "but not substitute them." And he stressed the distinction between one's conscience — where God reveals himself — and one's ego that thinks it can do as it pleases.
October 31, 2017, is the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.
Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the door of All Saints church, and other churches in Wittenberg, Germany on this date in 1517, as a protest of the Roman Catholic practice of selling indulgences.
This is considered as the start of the Protestant Reformation, and is commemorated as Reformation Day.
In 2016, on Reformation Day, Francis I, the Bishop of Rome, met with leaders of the Lutheran World Federation in Lund, Sweden to commemorate 2017 to eliminate division and fragmentation among their respective churches. Well, the 500th Anniversary is here, and the divisions seem to have been overcome since the pledge for unification was made in 2016.
The Roman Catholic church celebrated an Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy from December 8, 2015, through November 20, 2016, as declared by the papal Bull, Misericordiae Vultus.
Note that the Pontiff of Rome met with the Lutheran World Federation in Sweden on October 31, 2016, almost 3 weeks before the end of the Roman Catholic Jubilee of Mercy (Year).
Definition of Jesuit
1:a member of the Roman Catholic Society of Jesus founded by St. Ignatius Loyola in 1534 and devoted to missionary and educational work
2:one given to intrigue or equivocation
Martin Luther's 95 Theses were primarily an objection and a refutation of the Roman Catholic practice of forgiving 'sins' for money.
During the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy of the Catholic Church, sins were forgiven as an act of compassion by priests around the world.
What is so ironic about the Roman Pontiff celebrating the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, is that Martin Luther, the Reformer was opposed to the practice of selling of indulgences. Though the Holy See may not have sold Indulgences during the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy; they offered Indulgences as an act of charity. Either way, they were pardoning sins, which only God can do. So, the Roman Pontiff has taken part in something that I believe Martin Luther would not have approved. In fact, Luther was a Protestant, and believed in Sola Scriptura, and not the dogmas of the Roman Catholic church, which he had left following his conversion.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the Bishop of Rome, or as he named himself Francis I, is a Jesuit after all. And only a Jesuit would participate in an Event commemorating a Protest against the church he himself represents as its figurehead, no less. You see, duality is one of a Jesuit's favorite techniques.
He who died to redeem man from death, loves with a divine love; and he says to his followers: “This is my commandment that ye love one another as I have loved you.” Christ showed his love for the fallen race by his actions. The true child of God will be Christlike; and as he grows in the knowledge of the truth, and is sanctified through the truth, he will be more and more like Christ, and more desirous to save souls, the purchase of his blood.
Some can do more than others; but all can do something. Women should not feel that they are excused because of their domestic cares. They should become intelligent as to how they can work most successfully and methodically in bringing souls to Christ. If all would realize the importance of doing to the utmost of their ability in the work of God, having a deep love for souls, feeling the burden of the work upon them, hundreds would be engaged as active workers who have hitherto been dull and uninterested, accomplishing nothing, or at most but very little.
"Apoi a urmat un alt inger, al treilea, si a zis cu glas tare: "Daca se inchina cineva fiarei si icoanei ei si primeste semnul ei pe frunte sau pe mana, 10. va bea si el din vinul maniei lui Dumnezeu, turnat neamestecat in paharul maniei Lui; si va fi chinuit in foc si in pucioasa, inaintea sfintilor ingeri si inaintea Mielului. Apoc 14 9."

November 2, 2017: Daniel Xisto, the pastor of Charlottesville Seventh-day Adventist Church, is co-president of a IMPACT, an interfaith coalition comprising nearly 30 congregations in the Charlottesville, Virginia area. At their 12th annual assembly on October 24, the group voted to focus on campaigning for affordable housing in their community.
At the assembly, congregational caucuses voted to focus on affordable housing instead of on two other pressing issues: impoverished living conditions for immigrants and access to healthcare.
Charlottesville’s The Daily Progress reported that the decision was made after listening to testimony from community residents struggling with social challenges.
Xisto (recently interviewed by Adventist Today in relation to this summer’s Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville) said that the majority of his congregation had hoped to focus on helping the immigrant community.
He nevertheless supported the push for affordable housing and was moved after listening to an elderly woman speak about her challenges to pay rent for her basement apartment.
“To know that we had a grandmother in our midst who is having a hard time paying her bills and who has to walk a lot to get to her home, it’s really sad to me,” said the Adventist pastor.
Pastor Jim Bleakley, of Charlottesville Vineyard Christian Church, led the coalition in a prayer addressing the other issues of immigrant living conditions and healthcare.
“Even though we haven’t chosen to go in those directions, we know, Lord, that you’re still at work,” Bleakley said. “We trust those things (to) your hands, Lord.”
Progress reports on two previous focus areas—combating substance abuse and improving elder care—were given at the assembly.
IMPACT will hold its other annual meeting in the spring. This meeting, titled the Nehemiah Action, specifically seeks commitments from community leaders in support of social change priorities.
On February 2 of this year, Fulcrum7 broke a news story about a lesbian couple that was baptized into the Chico Seventh-day Adventist Church in northern California.
Alice Machado was baptized by Ginger Harwood, a former associate professor at the La Sierra University theology department.
Some of you may recall that on February 2, 2013, Ginger Harwood and Kendra Valentine (formally Haloviak) were both ordained as Seventh-day Adventist ministers, even though the action was out of harmony with the expressed will of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Ginger Harwood is a long-time supporter of LGBT+ activism. Fast forward three years and Ginger Harwood is knowingly baptizing a “married’ lesbian into the Chico Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Due to wide exposure of the story on Fulcrum7, the NAD was obliged to issue a statement on the situation at Chico. Near the end of the statement are these words: The North American Division has full confidence in the leadership of the Northern California Conference (NCC) in addressing this issue. Update:
After the baptism of Amber and Alice Machado, Jim Pedersen, Ricardo Graham and Dan Jackson were each contacted repeatedly about the situation, and asked to recommend appropriate disciplinary measures for Dan Wysong of the Chico Church. They apparently did nothing about it, until the story broke.
On October 10 2017, the president of the Northern California Conference sent this letter out to pastors in the NCC:
Lesson 7 Sabbath, November 18, 2017 The Call to Repentance
“Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.” Acts 5:31
“Calling and justification are not one and the same thing. Calling is the drawing of the sinner to Christ, and it is a work wrought by the Holy Spirit upon the heart, convicting of sin, and inviting to repentance.”—Selected Messages, bk1, p. 390.
