04:30 pm - Democracy Is Dead In America
I am absolutely flabbergasted and furious at the way how the US supreme court struck down DOMA and Prop 8. Do they honestly believe that they are above the people? The US supreme court will no longer defend freedom, God, Christianity, or the US Constitution anymore. They think they are supreme over God. They kicked God out the courts.
Seven million Californians voted to ban gay marriage with the passage of Proposition 8. We had to pass Prop 8 because the lower courts struck down Proposition 22. That was the whole purpose of Prop 8. To ban gay marriage with a tougher law so that it can no longer be struck down. We the people have a voice in the government. We have a right to amend the state constitution. I thought we were supposed to live in a democracy. Both times, Californians have voted to ban gay marriage twice with the majority of the vote. Funny I don’t see courts striking down Washington or Maine when voters approved to legalize gay marriage. So why do the courts have to strike down Prop 8 when our country is supposed to be of the people, for the people, and by the people?
The supreme court justices are corrupt, twisted, and evil. They do not stand up for the will of the people anymore. They believe that they can just legislate from their branch because they feel that their beliefs are superior which is completely wrong. Shame on the supreme court justices who struck down DOMA and Prop 8! Shame on them! One day they will be judged.
We do not have a voice anymore. Our votes were simply tossed out of the window by the stroke of the pen of five evil justices who no longer serve the truth. I am outraged at the assault of our freedoms due to the rule of tyrannical justices. Gay marriage can never be legalized at the national level. So the only way to do it is to take it to the courts. One day someone will sue a state ban on gay marriage that will reach the supreme court. By then the supreme court will just turn the rest of the country into Sodom and Gomorrah like what they did to California. How wrong it is for the supreme court to even have these justices in the first place who believe that they are above God and the people.
For the first time in my adult life, my vote no longer counts as a citizen. Democracy has died in a America.

02:13 pm - End Time Visions of Maurice Sklar
This video is worthwhile to watch because this vision in 1985 explains what is going with the world today. This is only the first part of Maurice Sklar's vision.



Please read th rest of his transcript here:
http://www.mauricesklar.com/Teachings/Visions_from_Dallas/visions_from_dallas.html

Here is the ending excerpt of his transcript:

Then I saw an old fashioned oil lamp that was lit with a flame coming out of the top of it. Then it suddenly became ten lamps that were lined up side by side. The five on the left of me suddenly started to flicker. The flame got smaller and smaller until finally it just fizzled and went out. But the lamps on the other side were fed by a lampstand that they were connected to that was previously hid in the darkness. They just burned brighter and brighter until finally I heard these words, “Come up here and escape the wrath to come, for you are found worthy. Behold, the bridegroom comes!” Then they all disappeared.

The Lord then said to me, “Half of those that say they know me in the time of the end are liars. They have never been lit with the fire from heaven. They are burning with the strange fires of Mystery Babylon. They only pretend to know Me. Their lamp shall be put out in outer darkness and there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. But those who are Mine shall shine forever and burn with the brightness of my glory as the stars. For they are lit from My throne and fed with my oil and shall never go out. These are My precious ones – My glorious Bride who shall always be true and faithful to Me. It is for her that I died and rose again. It is for her that I am returning in the midnight hour. Tell her that I have not forgotten her! She is My beloved and I am hers! I love her with an everlasting love. I shall surely catch her up to My throne where she will rule and reign with Me in glory forever and ever at My right hand. Amen.”

This is the account of the visions and visitation that I received in Dallas,Texas in the revival meetings during May and June of 1985, as best as I could write it. It is only now that I can share the fullness of those experiences because I have been released to do so by the Holy Spirit. May He add His blessing and anointing of fire to these words.

May you be found among His faithful, wise virgins when He appears in the midnight hour. May your lamp be shining brightly, being lit with the oil of the double portion of Elijah.

Shalom and God bless you now, Beloved!

~Maurice Sklar

01:49 pm - Another prophetic dream
I have had prophetic dreams that predicted the future and came true. They come only once in a blue moon. I had a dream that Obama got re-elected in 2012. I did not want to believe it, but it came true. I even texted my brother the day that I got the dream. He texted me back, "That is indeed disturbing!" I do have witnesses.
I also had another dream that I ran into a woman who was a conservative Republican activist. I told her that I voted for the other guy instead of Obama. She referred to Obama as "the goat."
Which brings me to this important dream that I've been wanting to share. I received this dream on 5/16/13. I wanted to share it but LJ was down at the time. Here it is:

"I just had a dream that I was trying to share the gospel to unbelievers, and the unbelievers refused to listen to me. Then God showered mice and rats upon the unbelievers.

The second part of my dream showed me that the Holy Spirit decides which Bible passages for Paul Kidd to post or upload. Eventually, the Holy Spirit will reveal to him a long and detailed Bible passage which pinpoints that the end is very near. I will know when I see that passage, and not just me but anyone else who is a true believer."

This means that if you are a true believer and if you see that passage, you will know that the end is near. I've been praying to God to send me warning signs.

Now that the US supreme court has turned California into Sodom and Gomorrah, we can expect God to pour down his wrath very soon. (It could be through earthquakes, hot temperatures, crop failures, fires, etc. I have a gut feeling that California will see its worst disasters very soon.) Please pray for our country to repent before it's too late.

01:39 pm - Why I Stand For Traditional Marriage and Why I Am Against Gay Marriage
I am a Bible-believing Christian, and I have complete faith in the Bible. I believe that the Bible is the Word of God. I follow everything that the Bible tells me to do. I believe in everything that the Bible says. I am not forcing my views down on anyone’s throats just by holding my own religious beliefs. The Lord Jesus Christ is my Savior and my Shepherd, and I love him first and foremost.

Christianity is a choice. If we choose to follow Christ, then we have to follow his teachings otherwise we wouldn’t be true Christians. We are just trying to live out our lives according to the gospel. We are not trying to condemn people who disagree with our views. We are not shoving our beliefs down anyone’s throats. Most Christians are normal people with ordinary lives who keep their personal beliefs to themselves.

The media just wants to generate news by focusing on the extremists of all religions whether if it’s Christianity, Islam, etc. All they care about is to generate ratings. They never mention anything about Christians going on medical mission trips, feeding the homeless, healing the sick, paying for someone else’s medical bills, building hospitals and schools, doing community service, etc. When was the last time they ever shed a positive light on a Christian?

I have no problem if people want to support their own cause, even those who I disagree with. We live in a free country where we are allowed to have own opinions and religious beliefs. However it’s so easy these days to “share” photos and “like” comments that are aimed at attacking Christians instead of trying to understand who we are and why we hold certain beliefs. It saddens me that our society has gotten to a point where Christian-bashing is considered to be a cool and open-minded thing to do. This is where I have to take a stand, defend my faith, and say, “Enough is enough.” I’ve grown tired and wary of seeing hatred and intolerance spat at Christians just for the sake of amusement. It keeps getting worse day after day.

Just because I disagree on a certain hot button issue does not mean that I hate. Since when did disagreeing become a form of hatred? Nothing can be further than the truth. Just because I love vanilla ice cream does not mean that I hate those who love chocolate ice cream. I do not hate anyone. I do not practice any form of hatred.

I believe that God created all humans and life, and he makes the rules. You can agree with him or disagree with him. You can choose that he exists, or you can choose that he doesn’t exist. Either way God gave each and every single one of us free will. But I choose to believe that he exists, and I choose to agree with him. I’m not interested in getting involved in political or religious debates. That’s not my point here. I already know that people are already set in their own beliefs. Everyone has a right to their own opinion. No opinion holds more weight than the other.

I’m making this post to show that I am not ashamed of my Christian faith nor will I ever sacrifice my faith just to fit in with society. I am standing up in the defense of God and my Christian friends and family members. One day I will meet my Maker in Heaven, and I will have to give an account to him. That is why I am making this post.

“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.”
John 15:18-19

You may not agree with me. You have a right to your own opinion. But it is also your responsibility to know both sides of the issue. Marriage is not an issue about equal rights or civil rights. Marriage is a religious institution between a man and a woman as bestowed and created by God.
It is about morality. If we compromise our morals and values, society will turn into chaos. Pretty soon we will not know the difference between right and wrong anymore.
All I did was support the Biblical definition of traditional marriage. There is nothing hateful about the definition of traditional marriage.
Marriage has always been a union between a man and a woman for thousands of years. We cannot just overturn a 4000 year-old institution. It’s not just Christianity that comes into play. Every major worldwide religion believes that marriage is between a man and a woman including Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam. Christians regard marriage as a religious ceremony bestowed by God. In fact, mankind did not create marriage. God created it. Marriage is not a civil right created by mankind. Rather God created marriage as a union between a man and a woman.

It is not up to us to change the definition of marriage to fit our own views, desires, or what we see fit. Marriage was a gift that God gave to the human race. It was his design. In the end, we can choose to follow God or we can choose to follow ourselves. However legalizing gay marriage will force Christians to recognize something that they don’t believe in.

It will take away the freedom of religion that was guaranteed by the First Amendment.

Why did the pilgrims come to America? When pilgrims set sail on the Mayflower, they risked their lives just so they can practice Christianity without the fear of being persecuted. Our country was founded on Christian principles. Even if you’re not religious, you still have to respect our customs because it’s part of being an American.
I remembered back in the 1980’s, it was cool to be a Christian. I wasn’t even a Christian then. In the 1990’s, Matthew Shepard was brutally murdered. He was a homosexual. We don’t know the real reason why he was murdered. The murderer was not a Christian. And then the mainstream media came in to distort the facts. They started to use the Christian church as a scapegoat for Matthew Shepard’s murder. How can the Christian church be the one to blame if the murderer wasn’t even a Christian in the first place? The media’s goal was to try to sway the minds of millions of Americans. The next thing we knew, Christians became targets of persecution because of the powerfully corrupt media.
You might not be a Christian. You might not believe in a God. You might think why does this even apply to me? Guess what? Our nation was founded on Christian principles. Every man that signed the U.S. Constitution was a Christian. Christianity gave you your freedoms and your liberties. You do not have to become a Christian in order to be an American. But as long as you live in America, you need to respect Judeo-Christian values.

I am not ashamed of the gospel that I believe in and I shouldn’t have to. I believe in a God who loves all human beings.

In fact, Jesus did not come to earth to condemn. He came to earth to forgive.

I support traditional marriage simply because the foundation of our society depends on it. This is about the future of our nation. If we choose to stray away from our traditions, then America will no longer be the country that it once was.

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God-this is your proper worship as rational beings. Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Romans 12:1-2

03:01 pm - Is Obama the Antichrist?
Updated 6/27/13



This video was posted back on Nov. 12, 2008 when Obama already fulfilled 12 of the 19 characterisics of the Antichrist. Today he's in the middle of possibly fulfilling several more characteristics of the remaining seven before the Rapture takes place. This video says that he has 7 more characteristics to fulfill. As of today, I believe that he has already fulfilled 2 of those 7 characteristics which brings the total to 14 out of 19.

What just happened:
-Obama visited Israel for the first time in his entire presidency for peace talks. He was able to get Turkey (a Muslim country) and Israel to reconcile with each other. Who other than the Antichrist can have the ability of creating peace in the Middle East?

Of the remaining 7 characteristics, the following 2 have been fulfilled:
-"He is changing laws and times concerning worship." Obama has quickly transformed our nation from a capitalistic Christian nation to socialist ungodly nation. First of all, Obamacare gives the government control over the lives and health of citizens. This abominable bill was shoved down the throats of millions of Americans within the first two years since Obama took office. He is the first president to openly endorse gay marriage. Since then, citizens in states have voted to legalize gay marriage for the first time. Countries around the world such as New Zealand, Paraguay, and France have taken suit. Never in my life have I ever seen such a prideful, swift endorsement and acceptance of gay marriage. Obama is very capable of changing laws and times concerning worship.
Now that Obama is re-elected, he wants to fulfill the rest of his evil agenda. He is doing whatever he can to pass the strictest gun control laws in all of American history. Neither side will give up the fight. But if we lose the 2nd amendment, then we lose the ability to protect ourselves from dignity. He wants to shove down immigration reform and give amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants in order to get them dependent on government.
-"He's getting close to persecuting Christians and Jews." Obama already started persecuting Christians. He's allowed the military to train soldiers to think that evangelical Christians are the #1 terrorist group, even worse than Islamic radicals. The tables are being turn. Obama is completely behind the IRS audit of conservative and Christian groups. He wants to silence the opposition just like Hitler. There is no question over the fact that Obama is behind the all-out assault on Christian groups and it will only get worse. He has already gone after conservative groups, Christian groups, and pro-Israeli groups. This is substantial evidence that Obama is persecuting Christians and Jews.

19 Characteristics of the Antichrist:
(Obama fulfilled 14 of the 19 as of 6/27/2013)


1.)Daniel 8:9-12
Starts small but becomes great and succeeds in whatever he does.

In less than 12 years, Obama went from a community organizer to U.S. Senate to the President of the United States of America, No, he is the most powerful man on earth at one of the most critical times in world history.
The key thing is that he succeeds in whatever he does. He succeeds in everything he does! No past president in US history was able to pass just about every single law that he ever wanted to get pass. And if Obama couldn't get Congress to pass it, then he writes executive orders! Obama is a tyrannical dictator! If he doesn't gets his way, he always finds another way around it to get what he wants, not for what's best for the country.
He was able to pass Obamacare with a supermajority within his first two years in office. No matter how much the GOP tried to fight Obamacare, even the corrupt US supreme court uphheld it.
When Obama threw in his support for gay marriage, gay marriage was legalized by the popular vote for the first time. Now the supreme court sides with him. Just yesterday, the supreme court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act for the first time in history. They also overturned Proposition 8 against the will of the people of California. Ladies and gentlemen, democracy is officially dead in America.

2.)Daniel 7:11
He is arrogant and boastful as a major personality trait.

Numerous news programs, radio broadcasts and periodical articles have been devoted to this topic. Karl Rove describes Obama as “arrogant.” Rush Limbaugh describes Obama has “narcissistic and mean-spirited.”

3.)Daniel 8:24
He will cause “astounding devastation.”

The US currently has the highest debt in history. The country is now $16 trillion in debt and still growing.

4.)Daniel 8:24
He will become very strong, but not by his own power, in his rise to fame.

Oprah Winfrey never endorsed a candidate in 25 years until Obama ran of office. “It feels like hope won,” said Oprah in an interview after Obama’s election. Obama is also supported by almost the entirety of Hollywood – undeniably the most powerful influence on the world. NO other world leader has had this support.
Numberous celebrities have thrown him support and contributed millions of dollars to his campaign. In fact, Obama has been to more fundraisers than any other president in history.

5.) Daniel, Thessalonians, and Revelation
He will be blasphemous and speak against God and His Word (The Bible)

Before even taking office, Obama has already begun his public mocking of the Word of God. Obama is also pro-choice and pro-gay marriage, which are beliefs that are against our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

“I am pro-choice. I believe in Roe vs. Wade. I come to that conclusion not because I’m pro-abortion,” said Obama at Saddleback Church televised by CNN.

“It is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think that same-sex couples should be able to get married,” said Obama on a TV interview.

6.)Revelation 17 and 18
Many believe that this passage states that the Antichrist will come from the dominant political, military, and economic power of the world in the last days. Right now, that is the United States of America.

”Despite what many experts say, the Antichrist will not be Jew. He will emerge as a Roman Gentile (non-Jew) from a revived version of the Roman Empire and rule in the last phase in the times of the Gentiles.” ~ Ron Rhodes, author of Unmasking the Antichrist

America’s government is modeled after the Roman Empire.

7.)Daniel 8:23
He will be a “stern-faced” king.

Stern: 1.) Hard, harsh, or serious look. 2.) Grim, gloomy appearance.

This characteristic of Obama has also been much discussed within the media. His expression is most often of a serious, somber, or stern-face person. Rush Limbaugh describes Obama as a “mean-spirited” man.

8.)Daniel, Thessalonians, Revelation
He will be a master of intrigue and deception.

He will deceive people by the millions. People will crying win Obama was elected in 2008.

9.)Daniel 7:24
He will be a king “different” from those who preceded him.

Obama has declared himself to be “different” from all the rest of the presidents before him. Obama claimed that his name sounded funny and that he didn’t look like the other presidents on the dollar bill.

10.)II Thessalonians 2
He will be known as the “lawless one” or a “rebel.”

On Nov. 11,2008, the U.S. Secret Service announced that Obama’s codename was RENEGADE. This was reported in major news sources around the world.

American Heritage and Merriam Webster dictionary

Renegade: “a lawless one, a rebel”

11.)Matthew 24
He will be seen “standing in the Holy Place” just before he takes office.

Obama visited the Holy Land in Israel before he took office. There are pictures and videos by the Associated Press to prove that.

12.)Many scriptures regarding the Antichrist declare that He will be called the Messiah.

A black pastor tells his entire congregation, “You are the instruments that God is going to use to bring about universal change, and that is why Barack (inaudible) the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn’t care anything about. That’s a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear. And the Messiah is absolutely speaking.”

Rolling Stones magazine put Obama on the front cover and called him “A New Hope.”

13.)Daniel 7:25
He will change times and laws.

“The idea of doing things on my own is very tempting,” Obama addressed an audience during a fundraiser. (video clip)
No one has ever changed times and laws nearly as fast as Obama. He was able to convince the majority of Americans to support the legalization of gay marriage. The gay agenda is spreading like wildfire.
Obama believes that he is above the law. He and his ruling elite believe that they are above the people. That is why the supreme court struck down DOMA and Prop 8. They don't care if the majority of Californians voted to ban gay marriage. Our votes no longer count to them. They have kicked God out of the courts and their classrooms. They just want to implement their own perverted agenda. Sadly, other states and countries around the world are following through with it in a swift manner.

14.)Daniel 8:25
He will come with words of peace, but bring chaos and destruction.

In 2009, in his first year as president, Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize. Obama was in office in less than a year.

5 more remaining characeristics have yet to be fulfilled. I believe that most of them won't be fulfilled until after the Rapture:

15.) He will have a wounded head.

The Antichrist survives an assassination attempt.

16.) He will be miraculously healed. The whole world will be astonished.

By then, the Antichrist will be completely possessed by Satan.

17.) A false prophet will be his right-hand man. Causes all to take a mark and erects a living image of him.

Most likely, he will be the pope of the Catholic Church. The Vatican just elected a new Pope. The Antichrist along with the false prophect will force the entire world to take the Mark of the Beast under the new world order and one world government system. No one will be able to buy or sell without the Mark of the Beast. Those who take the Mark of the Beast will be casted into the Lake of Fire.
The living image of the Antichrist is under debate. Some think it might be a holographic projection or a talking statue.

18.) Revelation 17
A 10 nation coalition will give him great power and authority.

The 10 nation coalition could possibly be Europe.

19.) Daniel 9:27
He will implement a seven year covenant with many. Many believe the context here is a peace treaty with Israel and Palestine.



Today Obama has fulfilled 14 of the 19 characteristics of the Antichrist! There hasn't been a leader who's been anywhere that close in all of human history. Even with the Benghazi attacks, the unethical IRS audits of conservative groups, and the illegal probing of journalists by the Dept. of Justice, Obama still has an approval rating of 53%. What is with this world?

12:31 am - What happened to California?
California has a long history of allowing their progressive politicians to advance a sexual agenda in the public school system. For instance, in 2009, then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed into law ‘Harvey Milk Day,’ (May 22) for schools to commemorate the San Francisco sodomite activist. This guy was the first openly homosexual man to be elected to public office. Well, ain’t that something to celebrate.
Mr. Milk was also well known for repeatedly engaging in adult-child sex, and advocated for multiple gay relationships at the same time. When he was 33, he reportedly had a ‘romantic’ relationship with a 16 year old boy, and always had a penchant for young waifs with drug problems. Whatta guy! Many parents were outraged and kept their children home from school that day.
Another homosexual, Democratic–led initiative in San Francisco, was one that requires schools to let boys play on girl’s athletic teams and utilize the ladies’ locker room if they ‘gender identify as girls—or vice versa for girls identifying as boys.’ The bill’s author, proud homosexual, Tom Ammiano, told the Los Angeles Times, some parents may be uncomfortable with their children sharing bathrooms with students of a different sex, but he said, “It’s also important to protect our children from prejudice.” Yeah, Mr. Ammiano, it’s also important to protect our children from sexual assault too!
Seeing that California is on the cutting edge of national debauchery and perversion, allow me to tell you a few more laws they have on the books, probably soon coming to a town near you!
In 1999, then Governor Gray Davis signed, AB 537, which permits teachers and students to openly proclaim and display their homosexuality, bisexuality or transsexuality, even permitting cross-dressing teachers, school employees and students on campus, in classrooms and in restrooms. But Lord have mercy, DON’T say a prayer or bring a *gasp* Bible into class!!!
In 2003, Gov. Davis signed SB 71, implementing the new ‘sexual health’ standards, which teaches children as young as 5th grade that any consensual sexual behavior is ‘safe’ as long as you ‘protect’ yourself with a condom, also teaching children that homosexuality, bisexuality and transsexuality is ‘normal.’ FIFTH graders, people! Betcha didn’t know that, did you?
SB 777, signed in 2007 by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, prohibits all public school instruction and every school activity from ‘promoting a discriminatory bias’ against homosexuality, bisexuality and transsexuality to schoolchildren as young as 5 years old!
In 2010, Gov. Schwarzenegger signed SB 543 which, get this… “allows school staff to remove children ages 12 and up, from government schools and take them off campus for counseling sessions, without parental permission or involvement.” Oh, reeeeeeally? Please. Give that a shot with my son. No, really. I mean it. Try it just once. Sometimes, prison is worth it…
But the pièce de résistance, yes the pinnacle of outrageous school overreach is this: Majority Democrats in the California legislature have turned back Assembly Bill 1861, which would have made it a felony for any teacher or employee of a public or private school to “engage in a sexual relationship or inappropriate communications with a pupil.” Did you get that? Read it again, carefully. Then stay the heck away from California!

01:27 pm - All Christians must flee from yoga
Yoga isn't just some kind of new health craze. Millions of Westerners have absolutely no clue about the origins of yoga. Yoga is Hinduism. Sadly, it is being passed off as a health science because of the New Age movement that started in the 80's. Yoga is not exercise. It is a form of spiritual meditation that helps you become "one" with a Hindu god. Yoga literally means "union."
The whole point of yoga is to unify yourself with a Hindu god by relaxing your mind and your body and using meditation. Sadly, most people don't even know that when they practice yoga. They are practicing an ancient pagan ritual. Yoga lowers your body's defenses by altering your consciousness. By doing that, you open yourself up to the spiritual world to allow demons to enter you. Yoga is pagan or occult and completely goes against the Bible. Anyone who is a Christian must flee from yoga and pray to Jesus to cleanse away all demonic spirits.

This video shows how yoga is Satanic because the person allows the snake to uncoil inside them and posess their entire body.

01:00 pm - Catholics aren't Christians
Catholics aren't Christians. Catholics are Catholics just like how Mormons are Mormons and how Jehovah's Witnesses are Jehovah's Witnesses. Why you may ask? Because a lot of Catholics believe contradict what Christians believe. Faith has been replaced by the Eucharist. You have to earn your salvation by attending mass. Faith is not enough. You have to perform good works. You're also told to venerate Mary as the Queen of Heaven. Catholics believe that Mary is the Mother of God. Where did that come from?
Catholics do not practice Christianity. Catholics practice Catholicism. Despite what they say, they still pray to Mary and the Saints. They still believe that they're the one true church descended from Peter. They claim to be the "original" church. Is it no wonder why only 1 out of 800 Catholics are converts? That's why 99.99% of all Catholics were born into it. They were indoctrinated into it. They're taught to believe that their infant baptism alone saves them or is the first step of the salvation. Hello? Infant baptism wasn't practiced anywhere in the New Testament. They claim that nowhere in the Bible does it say that you are saved by faith alone.
No one was allowed to question the teachings of the Catholic church throughout the centuries, otherwise they were put to death. If corruption and scandals exist at the top of the Vatican, it's not a good sign of where the church is headed. Lastly, they don't teach you to accept Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour. Salvation is through baptism and every other good work that you have to perform after it.
I wanted to think otherwise but I did my research by visiting the website Catholics Come Home. If you left the Catholic church, don't go back. Home is not the Catholic church. Home is in heaven where Jesus reigns.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Catholics are Catholics just like how Mormons are Mormons. A lot of what Catholics believe and preach completely contradict what Christians believe. Catholics believe that you are not saved by faith in Jesus Christ alone. They believe that salvation is through baptism. (But infant baptism wasn't performed anywhere in the New Testament.) They believe that you have to spend the rest of your life trying to earn your salvation by attending mass, praying the rosary (which is a prayer dedicated to Mary and the Saints), and doing a LOT of good works such as the sacraments (Catholic rituals). They believe that Jesus is important, but nowhere can I find that they teach you to personally accept Christ and just follow him. Many Catholics still claim to be the "one true church." Sounds almost cult-like to me. Overall, Catholics do NOT practice Christianity. Catholics practice Catholicism. That explains why 99.9% of all Catholics were born into it, and most Atheists (about one-thrid) were former Catholics. There are more Atheists that come from the Catholic church than from Atheists or other Christian denominations alone. Shocking, but those are the facts.

05:11 pm - The new pope
I just had a dream this morning that the Vatican picked a new pope, and he appeared to be white. The name Gregory was also mentioned. Sure enough when I woke up, the new pope was announced. He appeared to be white. His parents were Italian immigrants to Argentina. He picked the name Francis. When I looked up Francis, he was made a saint by Pope Gregory. All the details of my dream came true.
If Pope Francis is indeed the last pope according to Malachy's prophecy, then we don't have much time left because he's 76 years old.
The Beast is the King of the North. America is in North America and is also north of Argentina. Could that mean that Obama is the beast?
