A Message about #Children for the #Pope, #Vatican, #Catholics, and Other #Christians
Everything is always in process
Only compassion defeats dehumanization.
To all those of Christian faith who have or deal with children:
If there is any question, any doubt, as to what the Lord Christ said about child abuse, forgiveness, and the accountability of the Church, here’s a reminder:
And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them,
Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.
And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.”
Not much room for doubt or wiggling there, I would say. He who forgives murder describes what abusers should do rather than face his anger. Imagine what he’ll do to those who protect and enable those abusers. Add dogmatic hypocrites and abusers together and you get a picture of his attitude. Judgment belongs to him and he is clear about that judgment. Offenders and protectors should not only be stripped of the priesthood but excommunicated from Christianity as they are Antichrists by definition.
I hope that clears things up for you. Don't harm children, PERIOD. It comes straight from the source’s mouth.
Remember that the Temple was destroyed but the Jews continue. God knows Christianity can survive without the Church and so can he. He’s a builder.
God repented the flood. It’s past time the Church also led by repenting. It’s been a very long time since its last confession. That’s its test of faith. Whose Church is it? Is the Church above god?
Show us a rainbow.
For added clarity... the Rod we are not to spare is the Iron Rod that represents the Word of God. This is the Word on children.
