“pastor” deyoung seems to have no more clue what the “church” is than the pope does. To him, the Biblical church is just blah, blah, blah, while the roman catholic like institution he is a leader in is very important to attend every week.

Shameful. I am glad Jesus is leading His saints out of these harlot reformed places to gather together on equal ground as brothers and sisters in His body.

1 Corinthians 5: 9  [edit]

I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people.  Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world.  But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner—not even to eat with such a person.  For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside?  But those who are outside God judges. Therefore “put away from yourselves the evil person.”

The American Family Association is always busy urging professing Christians to boycott various retailers (starbucks, home depot, radio shack).  Yet God’s word tells us we would need to leave the world to boycott those who promote sin in some form or other.  As a side note, how is refusing to support the pagan/roman holy day of christ-mass a sin. God’s word says that it is fine to associate with unsaved people who live in all forms of sin and that we are NOT to judge them, but to be humble witnesses to them.  Yet this very same word says NOT to associate with those who call themselves Christians but live in sin.  I’m convicted that his includes groups based on patriotic idolatry or who support harlot roman catholicsm (AFA). [edit]

AFA – Boycott Radio Shack

Let’s say I can lift one-hundred pounds.

If you were to ask me to catch a million pound weight I would have to tell you that such a weight would crush me and there is no possible way to catch it. If you then asked me to catch a half million pound weight I would have to answer in the same way. Even if you lower it down to a hundred-thousand pounds, it makes no difference, it may as well be a million still. When we are dealing with weights that are so far beyond a legitimate amount the exact numbers no longer are relevant.

Take the various sects of modern christendom. They are all, for the most part, so far outside of legitimate new testament christianity the differences are no longer that relevant. Lets say rome is full of a million pounds of demonic garbage. The orthodox, jw’s mormons, sda’s are up there too around the million pound range. Then we have the hundred-thousand pounds of evangelical protestantism which seems so much more bearable compared to the others. Yet instead of comparing it to the others it is important to compare it to the new testament. In that way it is easily seen as a heavy yoke that the Lord never intended for any of his called out ones to carry.

I admit there are places that would identify with evangelical protestantism where the weight is much lighter, with more true believers in there, but it is still much too heavy of a yoke. There may even be places in the rcc that only weigh a quarter million, but that too is an unbearable burden.

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” -Jesus

The only true place of rest is in Jesus, but harlot church is not happy with that and seeks to seduce us into believing we need Jesus AND her.  Beware of such places. [edit]

Catholicism is the devils religion. It is the harlot imposter of the bride of Christ, a modern version of the ancient religion of babylon, its head is the antichrist, its false priesthood filled with vile sexual immorality, its worship of mary and prayers to the dead are idolatry, its mass is an abomination to God, its communion a mockery of the body of Christ, and its history is filled with the shedding of true saints blood. It damns men to hell by selling them a false christ, a false atonement, and a false sense of peace with God through an unclean altar.

With such an unholy abomination that my Lord Jesus Christ hates I make no terms of peace. To those who call themselves my brethren and think that their acceptance of such a hellish organization makes them more loving than I am, I make this charge. You have been deceived into this state by the golden cup of her abominations and your position indirectly leads other men into damnation. In the last days God has sent his angel to call men out of her midst, so why would anyone who loves Jesus comfort those who are still within her grasp? [edit]

Unity you say? What unity has Christ with the devil? Please think about this dear brother, dear sister.

Revelation 18: After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was made bright with his glory. And he called out with a mighty voice, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place for demons, a haunt for every unclean spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable beast. For all nations have drunk the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have grown rich from the power of her luxurious living.” Then I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues; for her sins are heaped high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.

“These Lenten fasting rules also evolved. Eventually, a smaller repast was allowed during the day to keep up one’s strength from manual labor. Eating fish was allowed, and later eating meat was also allowed through the week except on Ash Wednesday and Friday.” – From catholicencyclopedia.org

Hebrews 13:9  Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein. We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.

1Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;  Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.  For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:  For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.   If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.

And the woman was arayed in purple & skarlet, and gilded with golde, and precious stones, and pearles, and had a cup of gold in her hand, full of abominations, and filthines of her fornication. And in her forehead was a name written, A mysterie, that great Babylon, that mother of whoredomes, and abominations of the earth. And I sawe ye woman drunken with the blood of Saintes, and with the blood of the Martyrs of Iesvs: and when I sawe her, I wondred with great marueile. -Rev 17:4-6 Geneva

Geneva Bible Commentary:

That harlot, the spiritual Babylon, which is Rome. She is described by her attire, profession, and deeds. In attire most glorious, triumphant, most rich, and most gorgeous. In profession the nourisher of all, in this verse and teaching her mysteries to all, (Rev 17:5) setting forth all things most magnificently: but indeed fatally besetting miserable men with her cup, and brings upon them a deadly giddiness.

Matthew Henry:

Rome clearly appears to be meant in this chapter. Pagan Rome subdued and ruled with military power, not by art and flatteries. She left the nations in general to their ancient usages and worship. But it is well known that by crafty and politic management, with all kinds of deceit of unrighteousness, papal Rome has obtained and kept her rule over kings and nations. Here were allurements of worldly honour and riches, pomp and pride, suited to sensual and worldly minds. Prosperity, pomp, and splendour, feed the pride and lusts of the human heart, but are no security against the Divine vengeance. The golden cup represents the allurements, and delusions, by which this mystical Babylon has obtained and kept her influence, and seduced others to join her abominations. She is named, from her infamous practices, a mother of harlots; training them up to idolatry and all sorts of wickedness. She filled herself with the blood of the saints and martyrs of Jesus. She intoxicated herself with it; and it was so pleasant to her, that she never was satisfied. We cannot but wonder at the oceans of Christian blood shed by men called Christians; yet when we consider these prophecies, these awful deeds testify to the truth of the gospel. And let all beware of a splendid, gainful, or fashionable religion. Let us avoid the mysteries of iniquity, and study diligently the great mystery of godliness, that we may learn humility and gratitude from the example of Christ. The more we seek to resemble him, the less we shall be liable to be deceived by antichrist.

 John Wesley: 

 And on her forehead a name written – Whereas the saints have the name of God and the Lamb on their foreheads. Mystery – This very word was inscribed on the front of the Pope’s mitre, till some of the Reformers took public notice of it. Babylon the great – Benedict XIII., in his proclamation of the jubilee, A.D. 1725, explains this sufficiently. His words are, “To this holy city, famous for the memory of so many holy martyrs, run with religious alacrity. Hasten to the place which the Lord hath chose. Ascend to this new Jerusalem, whence the law of the Lord and the light of evangelical truth hath flowed forth into all nations, from the very first beginning of the church: the city most rightfully called ‘The Palace,’ placed for the pride of all ages, the city of the Lord, the Sion of the Holy One of Israel. This catholic and apostolical Roman church is the head of the world, the mother of all believers, the faithful interpreter of God and mistress of all churches.”

But God somewhat varies the style. The mother of harlots – The parent, ringleader, patroness, and nourisher of many daughters, that losely copy after her. And abominations – Of every kind, spiritual and fleshly. Of the earth – In all lands. In this respect she is indeed catholic or universal.

 

There once was a whorish women who had many harlot daughters.  Being the type of woman that she was, many of her girls ran away from home as teenagers in rebellion.  Some stayed home though for traditions saken, others stayed out of a mix of fear, control, and a sense of luxury offered.  The run aways would say many bad things about their mother.  They knew she was a whore, but they themselves were apples that had not fallen far from the tree.  Once their days of youthful rebellion ran course they realized they had much in common with their mother. 

Mother had a strong desire to call her little harlots home.  Although they often wrote her on Christmas and Easter she wanted more than that.  She worked hard to find ways to bond with her children.  She signed a peace treaty with them called catholics and evangelicals together.  Mother also remembered the old saying “nothing unifies like a common enemy”.  She found a common enemy that her harlot daughters were very passionate about.  This enemy was named abortion.  The harlots and their mother started protesting abortion together.  They started to become closer.  It’s not that mother had become any less of a whore, its just that the harlots were becoming more like her.  The daughters claimed they still loved their father that mother had cheated on and divorced a long time ago.  Mother claimed she still loved father too – she even paid a male prostitute to dress like a jester and go by the name of holy father.  Everyone made believe and validated each others whoredom.  This is a true story, this family reuinion is coming to a town near you.

For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. -2 Theselonians 2:7-12

My heart is broken within me to see the victims.
