in all things charity."

SALVATION THROUGH SINCERITY?

On Wednesday, Sept. 9th 1998 at the general audience in St. Peter's Square, the Pope spoke on the theme of "The Spirit of God and the 'Seeds of Truth' in non-Christian Religions."

"The 'seeds of truth'," said John Paul II, are "'the effect of the Spirit of truth operating outside the visible confines of the Mystical Body'," Pope Paul explained that "in all authentic religious experiences, the most characteristic manifestation is prayer. ... Every true prayer is inspired by the Holy Spirit, Who is mysteriously present in the heart of every person."

"Through the practice of what is good in their own religious traditions, and following the dictates of their consciences, members of other religions positively respond to God's invitation and receive salvation in Jesus Christ, even though they may not recognize Him as their Savior."

"The attitude of the Church and of individual Christians with regard to other religions is characterized by sincere respect, deep kindness, and also, where it is possible and appropriate, cordial collaboration" (Vatican Information Service 9/9/98)

This statement teaches that "all" will come to salvation, "through sincerity". God's Word (the Bible) tells us that those who "hear" and "believe" the "gospel of Christ" (Rom 1:16) receive the Holy Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit is present in the heart of "every person"? That sure is a mystery to me. I wonder from what god this revelation came to "Holy Mother Church".

Notice that "what is good in their own religious traditions" is the power of their god unto salvation. Jesus Christ is not being "taken out" of religious teachings, He is being made into a "non-essential". The world will come to believe in, and accept a non-essential Jesus Christ, just as I have come to believe in George Washington. (American Patriot and first U.S. President)

You know what my God tells me about "cordial collaboration" with the enemies of Christ?

2 Cor 6:15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

Hey! I believe that. Don't you?

Send Your Son soon Lord God, and put a stop to this mess. AMEN?

CATHOLIC PROTESANTS

Many Catholics today are "CATHOLIC PROTESANTS." To reject any Catholic teaching is to "PROTEST." "The nature of the Catholic faith is such that nothing can be added to it, nothing taken away. Either it is held in its entirety or it is rejected totally. This is the Catholic Faith which, unless a man believes faithfully and firmly, he cannot be saved" (Pope Benedict XV). It is not impious, and cannot be diluted, for it is as pure as God is. (an excerpt from the "Fatima Crusader Magazine". issue # 57)

[Editor] This magazine is all about contending for the Catholic faith. But the Roman Catholic Church does not hold to the stated "nature" of the Catholic faith, in that nothing can be added to it, nothing taken away. Please take a look of some of the "additions".
