ECUMENISM IS A CHARADE, AGAINST THE HYPOCRISY OF ECUMENISM

Tolerance is a big virtue these days. It is insulting for it implies putting up with something undesirable. Religious tolerance means one religion merely stomaching the others that disagree with it. There should be no religion as there is enough around to test our tolerance without it adding to the problems. Religion like a lot of things that are going around is inherently sectarian. Intolerance always starts with repressed hatred as signified by tolerance. Ecumenism is just snow over the manure heap. Its good effects cannot last.

CAN CATHS AND PRODS LOVE EACH OTHER?

Christians say that they don't believe in forcing people to convert to the Christian faith because they can't force others to convert. The conversions wouldn't be sincere. Translation: we are right and it is unfortunate if others disagree with us. We would force them if we could. What a pity we can't force them or make the decision for them.

Today the leaders of Catholicism and orthodox Protestantism are often busy hugging and kissing one another. Oh how false all this is.

Catholics and Protestants are in agreement that all are sinners and in need of the mercy of God. Catholics believe in mortal sin, sin that tears you away from God, and which will put you in Hell forever if you die in it, and in venial sin which is a small offence that does not ruin the friendship. The Protestants believe only in mortal sin. They imagine that they will get away with their mortal sins for Jesus got all the blame and suffered the punishment due to them for us, Rome views this as grave error. Protestants believe that man is incapable of good works unless man becomes a Christian so all is sin and even Christians are not without sin but are capable of good works.

Both cults say they cannot go for long without committing a sin and Protestantism says that anybody who was not saved by Jesus does nothing else and say even the saved sin a lot every day. Anyone who commits a venial sin thinking that it is mortal is guilty of a mortal sin because that is what they intended to commit. The Protestants are guilty of mortal sin most of the time.

Unless the Protestants cease to believe that all sin is mortal it is unlikely for them to be saved. The person who won’t try to convert them to Catholicism is forcing them to sin mortally by keeping silent.

If Catholics really loved Protestants they would be trying to the utmost to get them out of their religion to save them from everlasting damnation. They would be convincing them that they are wrong to teach that the born again Christian can die in serious sin and still go to Heaven immediately. They would be as zealous as the Jehovah’s Witnesses and go from Protestant door to Protestant door. Every Catholic would be trained to save them. It has to be done as fast as possible in case some of them die suddenly. Moreover, Catholics have a duty to reduce mortal sinning but every minute they delay they are making the Protestants sin more which is a mortal sin. To let someone go to Hell or sin mortally is the summit of hatred.

We are all capable of hate. If you don’t hate anybody that is leading others into Hell by sin then you don’t really believe in Hell or care much about the victims. You are more abnormal and depraved than a psychopathic murderer if you don’t care. What makes it even more abnormal is that the Church tells us we are biased towards doing evil. We like evil better so we should be more prone to hating those who draw others into Hell than not. Hate is not a sin if you cannot help it and how could you love anybody that damns souls? Eternal punishing, a beloved dogma of Jesus, Catholicism, Protestantism and Islam is a doctrine that incites hatred. How could you even smile if people are being damned? It would be sick to be happy.

The Church of Rome says that it is wrong to stand by and let others fall into mortal sin for it is the greatest evil. If she really believes this she will have to agree with the kidnapping of Protestant babies to have them raised as Catholics to prevent them growing up to sin mortally all the time if not all the time. If the babies cannot be reared as Catholics then they have to be murdered to prevent their being raised as Protestants for the salvation of their souls. The Catholic cannot suppose that it is up to God to see to their salvation for that logic would forbid trying to deflect sinners from unrighteousness and would be saying that we need to try to convert nobody.

Catholics have no right to allege that it is okay to do nothing for the Protestants wouldn’t listen to them anyway for they don’t know how they will react or if those who react badly will not soften up later. If everybody thought like that there would be no missionary work done – ever. Jesus commanded missions so he opposed such ideas as excuses.

Converting is the Holy Spirit’s job though he won’t do it at times without human instruments. His work is invisible and he is at work inside the person. This means that Catholics should not be afraid to pester Protestants for they might be getting through when it seems they are not. God says people are sinners and therefore strange. Catholics should not shy away from getting on their nerves for it is better to do that than to risk them receiving everlasting misery. The only thing that would release them from their obligation to evangelise would be if they were putting people off belief but this is no excuse. If it has repelled most people before, today is another day. It might seem to put some off the Catholic Church but if they oppose the idea of turning to Catholicism because of the way those who proclaim it carry on then they are not really turned off by the Church but just pretend they are to gratify their disgusted feelings. They have brains and must know that a religion isn’t proved untrue by the behaviour of its members. They are still open to the gospel. Hostility does not mean that there is no success for some people do not like what they are coming to believe and won’t admit their belief.

Instead of loving Protestants by turning them to Rome, Rome has ecumenical relations with them.

Protestants are encouraging sin by reciprocating these relations.

If all sin is mortal, then Catholics should be told. Even if a person will sin mortally anyway, it is still wrong to encourage it by letting the person feel that the sin is venial. The Bible says that nobody can earn salvation for all are sinners so believers in venial sin are being accused of pretending that they don’t fully reject God. Protestantism has to look upon Catholicism as a hoax and an enemy and not a religion. Such a belief would justify the persecution of the Roman Church.

What you have read is enough to convince anybody that there is no Holy Spirit guiding the Catholic or Protestant Churches. Ecumenism is a human effort and cannot last. It is not meant to anyway for it is about appearances.
