Francis I visited the small European nation of Malta in early April 2022. For a very long time Malta was one of the most Roman Catholic nations on earth, and even today over 85% of its population are “baptized” Roman Catholics. However, as with the rest of Europe, the country has experienced a steady decline in attendance at the Romish mass for decades now. And the government is certainly not fanatically pro-Romanist today, but like most of Europe it is Socialist. In 2011 it legalised no-fault divorce, and in 2017 it legalised sodomite “marriage”, both of which are contrary to official Roman Catholic teaching. Malta is the only remaining EU member which still fully prohibits abortion, but this too is under assault. A Roman Catholic party, the People’s Party, was vociferously anti-abortion before this year’s election, but it was boycotted by the mainstream media and received only scant coverage on State-sponsored TV.
The reasons for the Russian invasion of Ukraine can be very confusing to the man in the street. I refer the reader to my two previous articles on this subject. One was written in 2014 and entitled Ukraine, Russia, the US/EU: What’s Going On? and the other was written just some days ago and entitled The Russia-Ukraine Standoff and the Threat of War. These go into detail about the causes of the war.
What is going on along the Russian/Ukrainian border?
This can all be very confusing to the man in the street, and therefore, while keeping this present article short, I refer my readers to an article I wrote in 2014 which goes into detail about these events, rather than repeating pretty much the same things all over again now; as what is happening is so closely connected with what occurred seven years ago between these two countries. It is impossible to understand the present (2021-2022) crisis on the Russian-Ukrainian border, without understanding not only the events of 2014 but also the history of the relationship between Russia and Ukraine. Only then will the present crisis be understood.
Ireland Legalises Abortion: Its Rejection of Roman Catholic Domination
In May 2018, Ireland voted – by a landslide – to legalise abortion, the murder of the unborn in their mothers’ wombs. 66.4%, or two thirds of the citizens, voted in favour of abortion, 33.6% voted against it.
How did it come to pass that a country which had been one of the most Roman Catholic countries in the world came to vote so overwhelmingly in favour of something contrary to official Roman Catholic doctrine? Continue reading
“And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you. If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the Lord of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.” (Malachi 2:1,2)
In the Scripture above, the Lord sent a curse upon the Jewish priests, and cursed their blessings. For they were false priests. This can mean He cursed what they had been blessed with; but also, that He cursed the blessings they pronounced on others.
This is something that puzzles many Christians. If the pope of Rome believes that Roman Catholicism is the only true religion; if he believes that Islam is a false religion; if he is devoted to Europe being “Christian” (i.e. Roman Catholic); and if he knows (as of course he does) that Muslim terrorists are bent on turning Europe into “Eurabia”, a Muslim continent, and that they want to destroy Vatican City State itself and the Roman Catholic influence in Europe (as they certainly do) – then why is he encouraging Muslim immigration into Europe? What is going on?
Understanding Five Important Points
As they say, the first casualty of war is truth. This is certainly the case with what has been unfolding in Ukraine in recent weeks. From all sides there are lies, distortions, and deliberate disinformation. But even so, Christians can have a good understanding of these momentous events if they clearly grasp five important points, and never lose sight of them. Continue reading
