Vatican Calls for a Central World Bank

168
Now enough about Jesus. Listen to my economic policies!

Enough about Jesus. Now listen to my economic policies!

On October 24th, the Pope officially gave his support to Occupy Wall Street and, like Gorbachev, proposed a solution that goes EXACTLY at the opposite of the protester’s demands: an international organization regulating economy. In other words, a Central World Bank. In other other words, a New World Order.

Thank you Vatican for your input. Jesus was indeed a big advocate of international banking. He also preached about a world financial system that would only benefit the elite. Yup, that’s what he did alright (sorry for the extreme sarcasm).

Here’s an article about the Vatican pushing for the same international system as the Rockefellers and others.

Vatican Calls for Oversight of the World’s Finances

The Vatican called on Monday for an overhaul of the world’s financial systems, and again proposed establishment of a supranational authority to oversee the global economy, calling it necessary to bring more democratic and ethical principles to a marketplace run amok.

In a report issued by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, the Vatican argued that “politics — which is responsible for the common good” must be given primacy over the economy and finance, and that existing institutions like the International Monetary Fund had not been responding adequately to global economic problems.

The document grows out of the Roman Catholic Church’s concerns about economic instability and widening inequality of income and wealth around the world, issues that transcend the power of national governments to address on their own.

“The time has come to conceive of institutions with universal competence, now that vital goods shared by the entire human family are at stake, goods which the individual states cannot promote and protect by themselves,” Cardinal Peter Kodwo Appiah Turkson, the president of the pontifical council, said as he presented the report on Monday. “That is what pushed us.”

The language in the document, which the Vatican refers to as a note, is distinctively strong. “We should not be afraid to propose new ideas, even if they might destabilize pre-existing balances of power that prevail over the weakest,” the document states.

The message prompted comparisons with the rallying cries of protest movements that have been challenging the financial world order, like the indignados in Madrid and the Occupy Wall Street protesters in New York City. Still, Vatican officials said the document was not a manifesto for disaffected dissidents.

“The document proposes ideas that seem to be in line with those proposed by the indignados, but really we are in line with the Magisterium of the church,” said Bishop Mario Toso, secretary to the pontifical council, referring to the church’s teaching authority. “It is a coincidence that we share some views. But after all, these are proposals that are based on reasonableness.”

The document is a reminder that the Catholic Church, without getting involved in policymaking, still seeks to shape its principles. “To function correctly the economy needs ethics; and not just of any kind, but one that is people-centered,” the document states, paraphrasing an encyclical that Pope Benedict XVI issued in 2009 calling for greater social responsibility in the economy.

In the United States, the report was embraced by politically liberal Catholics who are concerned about the widening gap between rich and poor. Vincent J. Miller, a professor of Catholic theology and culture at the University of Dayton, wrote, “It’s clear the Vatican stands with the Occupy Wall Street protesters and others struggling to return ethics and good governance to a financial sector grown out of control after 30 years of deregulation.”

John Gehring of Faith in Public Life, a liberal advocacy group in Washington, said, “In the next Republican presidential debate, someone should ask Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, both proudly Catholic, whether they support the Vatican’s call for more robust financial reform.”

Politically conservative Catholics, meanwhile, hastened to assure their camp that the document does not carry the full force of church teaching, since it was produced by a Vatican office, not by the pope himself. And some dismissed the report as nothing new, or simply misinformed.

Writing in the National Review, Samuel Gregg of the Acton Institute, which promotes free-market economic policies, said of the document: “It reflects rather conventional contemporary economic thinking. Unfortunately, given the uselessness of much present-day economics, that’s not likely to make it especially helpful.”

Sometimes it's hard for me to interpret the bible, but once I read "Earth's Final Hours", I felt like there was no doubt in my mind. The book of Daniel and Revelations tells us all we need to know…as someone else said, it's time to "watch the throne." My eye will be on the Pope in the coming days, months, and years. Here's the link to the chapter in the book that spelled it all out for me:

Somehow the comments are not being logged in chronological order. My reply to truth-will-set-u-free and Edward (#s 82 & 85) ended up under #67!

Thanks again truth-will set-u-free and Edward! I perused through sections of Walter Veith's Total Onslaught. He is interesting but makes the mistake of quoting catholic authors as though they are re-presenting Catholic teaching. Like one guy he quoted who said it is the priest who forgives sins. Priests do not forgive sins -only God. The Catechism of the Catholic Church actually has a 2 paragraph section titled "Only God Forgives Sin". I have a priest friend who says God is in process (of becoming more than He presently is). This friend is totally wrong and heretical on that point. He is a catholic priest and often published author, but his ideas are not only not Catholic (on many issues), they aren't even Christian! What he says is NOT Catholic teaching no matter what he or anybody else says. Regarding his point that the Catholic Church is in bed with the… Read more »
I have a question, isn't God love? Isn't he the one who forgives? Should'nt we all try to love each other? I as a Catholic, has to make a stand, many Catholics don't believe that the Pope is infallible, I myself don't believe he does not commit sin, we, mankind are sinful. Don't you know Pope Benedict was a Nazi youth? However, though he is leading Catholics, He is not the head of the church, God is. Only God is the head of the church, and all of us believe that. Here is something contradictory of what some people refer to the Catholic Church as the "W***e of Babylon", the bible you have today was first originated from the scriptures right? However the Catholic Church actually assembled all the scriptures into one thick book, the bible. Then why would the Catholic Church refer themselves as the w***e of Babylon? Religion… Read more »

Vatican not know how to manipulate the population invoking God

I respect the varying religious viewpoints, but i dont feel much can happen over the internet with regards to persuasion or understanding of religious identity, it is too shallow of a form of communication. I am engaged by others concerns, but the rift between varying religions can not be bridged with written responses over the internet. It seems to be mostly a dead end.

But isn't the Vatican's whole point that we need to bust the super-corporate banking model that is destroying ordinary people's lives, and causing massive housing crises etc?

If you really read this with your heart, the Pope is calling on us to go to God for solutions. God's power is supranatural whereas the the devil's is supernatural, the difference is bigger than the one letter. Pray for the Pope because he's the current rock, he needs loving prayers since free masons hate him more than you could imagine. Plus if the Church was said "Harlot", the Pope wouldn't have instituted The Alliance Of the Two Hearts Holy Family International. Check out Fr. Bing Arellano on Youtube.com to see just how against The New World Order the Church really is.

Warning ahead before NWO emerged:

Please stay safe even if disaster strike caused by the Elites.

As a Roman Catholic, and a fan of Pope Benedict, and a fan of this site, I must say that I am disappointed by the pontiff's stance on a world bank. For the non-Catholic readers I feel obligated to inform you that Catholics don't have to believe or agree on everything the pope says. We only have to believe the official teachings of the Church – Dogms – which are proclaimed "ex cathedra" or "from the Chair (of St. Peter)," and the last time this happened was in the 1950s.

I worship God almighty creator of heaven and earth and I will never worship any man or thing! I am and will always be a catholic .The bible says God will write His laws in our hearts, everyman will know wrong from right. Jesus is the only way to God not any church or ideology.

Hey, i long for the day when people will purely identify themselves as 'CHRISTIANS' and not qualified by such terms as 'forever catholic' *no offence btw*. I believe our faith should be defined by the fact that we are 'forever followers of Christ' and not confined to loyalty to a denomination etc…and we should be Vigilant since the Bible says that even the devil masquerades as an angel of light. We should therefore open ourselves FULLY to God's direction and be seekers of truth and He shall truly direct our paths. We shall be wise as serpents and we will be able to test the spirits as the Bible instructs. let us partake of rituals knowing full well what they mean and Research widely with an open mind. God will surely not let us down as He gives us what we ask for. Be blessed and please READ his WORD.… Read more »

THIS IS PROPHETIC STUFF!!!!!!!!!!!!! Like, seriously!! The Roman Catholic Church= Revelation's W***e of Babylon

Interesting perspective about the Vatican's position on fiat money…

Yep. Another sign of the end times…perhaps it WILL be in my lifetime…

Anyone else think a Pope will be the false prophet?

Vatican is riches organization on earth???

I don't think that pope was talking about the NWO, he's just concerned about the poverty and social problems of people, and he wants that someone supervises the elite and those who only care about money and power.

People often say that they believe in Jesus, and don't believe in Church, but guess what: Jesus established Church for a reason, and Holy Spirit guides it (and God knows what he's doing, even if that has no sense to us.)

The church doesn't equal a church building or people who go to church or even people that work at a church. The church is the body of true believers who have put their faith in Christ. That's why Christ is described as the head of the church…

Regarding LVB's assertions under comments from #30: None of the things you mentioned popes to have said and done were said or done in official of infallible ways. The popes you mentioned were scoundrels indeed and they reigned in times when there was little to no distinction between church and state, when corruption was sometimes rampant. But when a pope "solemnly declares or promulgates to the universal church" he can't just be talking or writing -even if he is talking or writing to a wide audience when he says something. I have never heard of an infallible teaching that was simply (or merely) verbal. Secondly, an infallible statement needs to be made in an official document that has serious weight. Encyclicals and universal meetings of bishops which the pope has jurisdiction over CAN fall under 'infallibility' but DO NOT necessarily, or even commonly, do so. In relation to the vast… Read more »
I am a catholic and want to say some things regarding this document. It is not what the church calls an infallible document, in any way. So no catholic is obliged to believe its conclusions OR even agree with them. Secondly, from what I have read, many of the articles relating to the document focus on the central bank idea which i have yet to see in the actual document (i have not been able to find the text online -it is supposedly 18 pages long). I think, from sundry articles i've read on it, that it suggests an oversight authority that would help regulate monetary/economic matters. I have yet to see an actual quote from the document itself enumerating an actual bank, much less a central world bank. I don't think that representation in the MSM is accurate at all. There are over 1 billion catholics in the world… Read more »

Well written Dave…..maybe try the vatican website….I did find it yesterday but can't

remember the link…I'll look again later.

I think as Christians we need to be aware of the spiritual battle going on here….evil and corruption has infiltrated almost all aspects of human living….

From all churches, governments, business, media, education, sport, music and the arts etc etc

We should not be suprised by this….

I believe especially the Christian churches arguing amongst each other is a major tool used by our enemy to distract us from fulfilling the plans God has for us individually and collectively.

Arm yourself for battle (spirtual battle that is) Ephesians 6

And may the peace that only God can give fill your mind, heart and soul

thanks! and that same prayer for you and everyone who reads these comments…

Just when you think you've seen/heard it all! :O

This is why the Catholic religion along with all religions is complete bullshit. They are nothing but crooks, child monsters and false prophets. You can worship GOD without having a religion.

Hasnt anyone ever wondered who "Babylon the Great" is??? The Harlot who sits on many waters (people and nations) who commits fornications with the kings of the earth (governments)

Babylon the Great with her "spiritistic practices" (religion)… The great harlot is The world empire of FALSE RELIGION.

We are living in the last days my friends…

"for the love of money is the root of evil"

"Come out of her My people!"

There are so many things wrong with the Roman Catholic "religion", and so many un-biblical teachings that I wouldn't know where to start. However, I am sure there are plenty of Catholics out there that actually believe the truth – Jesus blood saves, invite him into your heart to live, believing by faith he died for sin and arose on the 3rd day, and that he is the true son of GOD. Believing that Jesus alone saves and no work of yourself, so that no man may boast.

feel free to "start" or is it perhaps easier for you to make a quick and easy comment without any real substance?

um. pot. kettle.

@VCfan3

Laughter is the best medicine. Show no fear. Whatever will be, will be. When things turn nasty, I for one will carry on laughing at the pathetic attempts to defeat humanity. Love and peace is far more powerful than fear and hatred. I will go out laughing, rather than in fear of death. I have seen evil, being beaten so badly that my attackers left me for dead. I learned that fear is what these people feed and thrive off, like vampires. They want you to be fearful of what's around the corner, the fear of the unknown. So in that case, do the opposite!

"Laughter in the face of adversity"

Remember, Satan has only one directive… To destroy God's Church and to get as much souls to hate her as possible. He will have his agents, both seen and unseen, do everything they can both from the outside of the Church and from within, to destroy HER because he hates HIM.

The inner dinamic of the Church is something you can't see or understand from the outside…I won't go into what I mean by that because it would take too long, but it's true…I am really sick and tired of Catholics being described as some stupid people who are simply listening to what the Vatican is saying…that is such a lie. There are a lot of young Catholics who know exactly what they believe in and why. And we all talk about this as well. I have shown this site to a lot of my friends. We are not ignorant fools. We understand the Church more than anyone on the outside can. Because we know the devil exists but we keep our eyes on God we are able to see the good and the bad in the Church. We don't deny that there is bad in it. The Church is both… Read more »
We cannot understand your church from the outside?? Are you serious?? Do you think we are blind that we cannot see? Do you think we cannot read those Catholic made literature in the libraries which contain many blasphemies against the Most High God? We already know the rituals you guys do in there, you pray to statues and idols. God forbids it in the second commandment which your church removed in their version of the bible. If you see the despicable things happening in your church and you decide to sit there and not go to a church that follows the Bible and the Bible only then the Lord says in scripture that he will send strong delusion for you to continue believing lies. You will then accept willingly, the mark of the Beast. "Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and… Read more »

How on earth, can anything be Human AND Godly??? The arrogance of ANYONE who claims to be Godly! Placing any human on a pedestal, above all others and claiming to be Godly, is the same as putting that person on God's throne. Condoning war and sexual abuse of children is far from Godly. Collecting masses of gold and wealth (a lot of which the Nazi's stole during WWII) is far from Godly.

“I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

Jesus didn't get involve in politics…. so this political context you mentionned draws a red on you and your comment.

Follow this:I am no part of the world from JOHN 17:14 I have given your word to them, but the world has hated them, because they are no part of the world, just as I am no part of the world.

15 “I request you, not to take them out of the world, but to watch over them because of the wicked one. 16 They are no part of the world, just as I am no part of the world. 17 Sanctify them by means of the truth; your word is truth._NWT

Yeah, Jesus didin't get himself involved in politics but we humans do it all the time…that is what I mean by that and it actually goes perfectly with the other things I said (Chruch being human and godly) 🙂

I am not surprised. I expected exactly the same from Vatican, who have named a telescope "LUCIFER" together with the… Jesuits ().

Personally i Support Any Occupy Event Not Only Because i dont like capitalism… but also because these protests have not much to do with one opinion its a mix of opinions that has been suppressed true there are attempts to hijack it but nevertheless lets not forget those many of those are left wing anarchist in the streets which personally i show symthpathy with and support because perhaps they are the only movement which cannot be controlled ( and by controlled i mean politically …not support the vandalism of course:) )

Does the fact that figureheads of the elite giving the protests their backing and promoting them not make you think there's something very (very) fishy going on?

It's the classic Hegelian dialectic. The elite create a big mess – The elite promote the Occupy movement – The elite provide the solution of the New World Order.

@Freetoday

I am not saying the protesters are in support of the NWO. I am sure most, or all, are doing it for all the right reasons. What I find VERY suspect and sinister, is that the very people – the elite – are all giving the protests their backing. They are using the Occupy movement, duping them, into accepting the NWO as the solution to the problems, that the same elite have created.

Only if you say so, bro. The people at the marches I have met are anti-Illuminati.

politics and economics vs. church..

I thought they learned something about not being in politics anymore..

it was one of the biggest steps of human kind..

now we're even making a bigger step with OUR revolution.

Im writing a paper at the moment about how consensus would be possible in really big groups, nations, countries of even world wide would be possible..

so everyone can have a voice, and everyone can have a vote. and be active in the discussion.

smart, dumm, rich, poor.. everyone a voice that is heard.

To be fair and square, I want to point out that the Pope never asked himself for any of this nonsense about a world government, neither he spoke "ex-cathedra" or said it was an order or anything, in fact he didnt say a word about this. It is a document from a Vatican agency, and there are masons infiltrated everywhere, thats for sure, please keep an open mind, and read this article, it might give you another perspective on the issue, dont be too harsh to run and point a finger at the catholic church, In fact there are many prominent catholic priests who have warned a lot about the dangers of a new world order, among them father Michel Schooyans, and Father Juan Claudio Sanahuja.thanks a lot.

If you watch on youtube: the devil in the vatican

You will know that the vatican accepted secret societies into their ranks…theyve been major players in all the wars. even abrham lincoln and thomas jefferson stated that the jesuits, vatican etc are sinister and are what caused these wars. Hitler was influenced by jesuits to slaughter millions of jews same with stalin. just watch the vid on youtube and research on google about the vatican and the w***e of babylon and the black pope. Youll understand everything and how it correlates with the bible. Truth will spread!

I was reading up on the black pope, i`ve seen more than a few evil looking preists in churches around the world, you can tell the difference between someone who is unhappy at work and someone who hates Jesus Christ, we are not to judge, were not supposed to bow down before imposters either! Anyway the gesu church, home to the jesuits, is round the corner from the vittorio emanuele II monument, bares quite a resemblence to the throne of satan from pergamum, which is supposed to be in berlin, i wonder if the real ones in rome?

John, watch the film that Flanny mentions – "Devil in the Vatican" on youtube. (might be "NWO – Devil in the Vatican")

It makes sense of what the Vatican is about and who really has the "power"… Revealing stuff!

Im incredibly happy that so many ppl know about the vatican/roman catholicism/pope, and who they "really" are. I thot only SDA knew about this…but clearly the truth is getting to the public.

I visited the vatican museum recently, it's opulence is sickening. I wish I hadn't pay the entry fee. It is no wonder God has promised to destroy this 'Babylon the Great'. Babylon the Great is depicted in the bible as a wealthy w***e riding upon a beast. A fitting picture of how the church rides the back of beastly governments trying to influence their decisions. God will soon cause these beastly governments to turn on the w***e of Babylon, she will be thrown down and devoured completely by the beast. They will strip her of her wealth and glory. Just as God himself used the ancient Medo-Persian empire to destroy ancient Babylon, he will use modern day governments to destroy this false religion. It's all Revelation 17:16-18 "And the ten horns that you saw, and the wild beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her devastated and naked,… Read more »

Don't overlook the inverted cross on the Pope's travel "throne"… or the use of the Satanic "Bent" cross, which mocks Jesus on the cross.

kinda late with this VC, this was announced a few years ago. these bastards used the media as there "cloak and dagger" during Micheal Jacksons funeral; so of course it wasnt noticed because of all the coverage. better late than never though!

I don't think the Catholic church teaches about the rapture. I am no expert though. Although I was raised Catholic I have long ago broken away from that church. I see no need for them to teach it though. Why teach a theory invented in the 17th and 18th centuries based off of one verse by Paul (the man who never met Jesus)? I wish that Christian churches would stay away from anything close to Darby's dispensationalism. That kind of end times mumbo jumbo discourages activism (Why bother taking a stand against evil if Jesus is just around the corner to fix it all?) and takes a hacksaw to the Bible and scrambles the pieces to justify itself.

there is a difference between taking a stand, and working against God's will.

however, you probably have to actually BELIEVE the Bible, believe in God's will,

believe in God's Master Plan, and believe that God is in contol to understand this.

Who would ever guess that the wealthiest tax-free corporation on earth (the Vatican) would be totally in favor of the UN (one world govt), a one world financial system and "ecumenical unity" – all the world religions coming together as one?? (Extreme sarcasm included, VC.) I try very hard not to offend my Catholic friends, who are very good people, but I really do wonder when their eyes will be opened to this blatant insanity. I mean, seriously, the "Papal infallibility doctrine" is still in effect as far as "the Church" is concerned – meaning that once a mere MAN is declared Pope (by other mere men, of course), then he can do no wrong or sin at all. REALLY??? I don't think most people (as individuals) raised in the Catholic faith actually believe this in their hearts, but it IS the official doctrine of the Vatican. And it is… Read more »
I find it fascinating to see how many "Christians" and the like make great mockery and condemnation of the Catholic Church often without seeking out true and correct information.

Thank you for your words in defense of Christ's Church. Pax Tecum!

i am a Christian. i believe, and my pastor says the same thing, that a person can know Jesus regardless of their "religion".

why must we put God in a box???

Jesus knows His sheep, they hear His voice, and follow Him. there are Mormons who love Jesus, Catholics who love Jesus, Jehovah's Witnesses who love Jesus.

we have to stop looking at what divides us, and look for who brings us together.

<3 God is LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. <3

why must people care about "proving" that someone else is "wrong"? that really isn't our job, after all.

be a witness for Jesus, and He will do the rest.

Praise the KING of Kings and LORD of Lords!!!

Actually, I did acknowledge above that the no name guy who commented is correct (as you are) in saying that you and other Catholics don't believe that the Pope is infallible 24/7, which is comforting – and I'm happy to stand corrected on that. However, as he also went on to say, correctly, the Catholic Church DOES believe that when making official declarations involving the whole church and involving faith and/or morality, the official doctrine IS that the Pope "is preserved from even the possibility of error[1] when he solemnly declares or promulgates to the universal Church a dogmatic teaching on faith". I then went on (see above) to provide a list of many historical events wherein various Popes when making such official declarations were not only absolutely wrong, but quite EVIL in their thoughts and official actions, not to mention each contradicting the next in their thoughts and actions… Read more »
Advocates of Untruth 10 Did the clergy of Darwin’s time fight back against his God-dishonoring theory? Surprisingly, a Cambridge University professor writes: “At first much of the opposition to Darwin’s theory came from scientists on the grounds of evidence, not from the theologians on grounds of scripture.” Another learned doctor adds: “With but few exceptions the leading Christian thinkers in Great Britain and America came to terms quite readily with Darwinism and evolution.” In 1882, Darwin was even buried among kings in Westminster Abbey, by special arrangement with the Anglican dean of that abbey!—Compare Acts 20:30; 2 Timothy 4:3. 11 Darwin’s atheistic theory is now accepted as ‘gospel truth’ by many of the clergy of Christendom.

sorry typo…I meant to say that I don't have opposition to exposing falsehoods…..hmmm one little word can make a big difference lol

Don't forget Vatican riches Gold form is in Rothschild banks.

Catholics do not believe that the pope can not sin or do wrong. They believe that the pope can not make an error when making decisions that affect the whole church regarding faith and/or morals. His personal life and choices are not included in infallibility, nor do catholics claim that it does. Any catholics who say the pope can not sin because of infallibility do not know the official church teaching on infallibility.

You are correct about this, which I really do appreciate. But actually, we are both correct, and you're probably not going to like the things that I am correct about. "Papal infallibility is a dogma of the Catholic Church which states that, by action of the Holy Spirit, the Pope is preserved from even the possibility of error[1] when he solemnly declares or promulgates to the universal Church a dogmatic teaching on faith as being contained in divine revelation, or at least being intimately connected to divine revelation. It is also taught that the Holy Spirit works in the body of the Church, as sensus fidelium, to ensure that dogmatic teachings proclaimed to be infallible will be received by all Catholics. This doctrine was defined dogmatically in the First Vatican Council of 1870." However, prior to recent times, there were more than a few Popes who (being "infallible" at the… Read more »
The Vatican´s document is – as usual – more sophisticated and differentiated than it is reported in the media where an eye-catching headline is the most important thing. First of all, Prof. Becchetti is not "the Vatican", he is extraordinary Professor at Tor Vergata University. Secondly, global governance is but one of the issues that the paper addresses. Thirdly, the Vatican has been referring to the "New World Order" as a political fact and not as a political goal for a couple of decades already. The ideological basis of this reference is not the NWO as a concept for which everybody has his own interpretation but two millenia of "global operations" by the Vatican as a political actor. If you look at past comments of pontiffs you will find a whole array of issues that contradict usual NWO themes: Leo XIII. prasing non-intervention and national sovereignty; John Paul II. defending… Read more »

This pope is one of the scariest I've ever since. I swear he belongs in a Halloween movie or a Nightmare on Elm Street remake. I've never trusted Catholics and their church is even scary.

They're sneaky & they know it.

Best wishes with JOHN 17:3 NWT

I'm not shocked at this. The bible pegs the Vatican as the Beast of revelation. America is the second beast that will make the whole world worship the first beast (vatican). These are the end times my people. Don't want to be lost? Search for Jesus Christ for only He can save you through these perilous times.

I am a Catholic, I go to Mass everyday. The Catholic Church is not the w***e of Babylon, someone is missing some very important books and guidance from the Holy Spirit. We do not worship idols, we do not worship saints or the Mother of God. We ask for their intercession to God and we are well aware there is but one mediator to God the Father that's why all things go straight through the hands of the Saints to Jesus on our behalf. Matthew 24 tells us even the elite will be decieved, the protesters want communism, so does Gorbechev and the Vatican, they have all been decieved. Prayer is so important, please pray, stop hating one another and ask God to help us in our tribulations we are about to embark on.

Dear fellow,

You are lost ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE and here is why?

Have you ever seen a person with a map in his hands, who is lost and need real directions to find his way?

What would you do before that scene?

KINDLY SHOW HIM THE WAY, right!

In the same way my desire is to show the way with this link:

Blessing from THE MOST HIGH PSALM 83:18

Satan is working overtime.

Yes The Bible said that indeed

Rev 12:12 On this account be glad, YOU heavens and YOU who reside in them! Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to YOU, having great anger, knowing he has a short period of time.”

(Not for what you thought but for this)

Rev12:17 And the dragon grew wrathful at the woman, and went off to wage war with the remaining ones of her seed, who observe the commandments of God and have the work of bearing witness to Jesus._NWT

@Door 2 Door I appreciate these scriptures you referred to, you are very well informed.

For convenience, account numbers will be tattooed on the forehead.

I wonder what Peter the Roman's economic plan will look like…

Too bad they didn't ask them about the Mafia banks, the p*******e scandals and support of other deviant causes. The biggest corporation on the Earth is run by the Vatican and I was born Catholic– still am minus the Vatican worship which I never had. I expect more such statements from a Vatican under a pope who was a former Nazi("yeah, he was a small boy, but most Mafia hitmen started capping guys as small boys"). We will sooner have World War 3 than one religion.

One world govt, one world money system, one world religion.

Where have I heard this all before?

The only thing missing is the AC to rise from the seven hills of Rome to seize power.

"Enough about Jesus. Now listen to my economic policies!" EPIC xD

Can anyone shut this this old man's mouth?

Seriously. It's annoying!

Ask them who "The Black Pope" is, and why Jesuits run the Vatican.

Dear VC,

Your sarcasm is Perfect!

It´s very good to have a place|site that we can feel understood.

Cheers!
