That All May Be One

1.What was Vatican II? ANSWER: The Second Ecumenical Council of the Vatican, or Vatican II, was an Ecumenical Council of the Roman Catholic Church opened under Pope John XXIII in 1962 and closed under Pope Paul VI in 1965. It is reconed as the twenty-first ecumenical council by the Roman Catholic Church. Four future pontiffs took part in the councils opening session: Cardinal Giovanni Battista Montini, who on succeeding Pope John XXIII took the name of Paul VI; Bishop Albino Luciani, the future Pope John Paul I; Bishop Karol Wojtya, who became Pope John Paul II; and 35-year-old Father Joseph Ratzinger, present as a theological consultant, who more than forty years later became Pope Benedict XVI. Throughout the 1950s, Roman Catholic theological and biblical studies had begun to sway away from the neoscholasticism and biblical literalism that the reaction to the Modernist heresy had enforced from after the First Vatican Council well into the 20th century. This shift could be seen in theologians such as Karl Rahner, and John Courtney Murray 2

who looked to integrate modern human experience with Christian dogma, as well as others such as Yves Congar, Joseph Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI) and Henri de Lubac who looked to what they saw as a more accurate understanding of scripture and the early Church Fathers as a source of renewal (ressourcement). At the same time the worlds bishops faced tremendous challenges driven by political, social, economic, and technological change. Some of these bishops sought new ways of addressing those challenges. The First Vatican Council had been held nearly a century before but had been cut short when the Italian Army entered in the city of Rome at the end of Italian unification. As a result, only deliberations on the role of the Papacy were completed, with examination of pastoral and dogmatic issues concerning the whole church left undone. Pope John XXIII, however, gave notice of his intention to convene the Council on 25 January 1959, less than three months after his election in October 1958. While he expressed his intentions in many messages over the next three years in formal detail, one of the best known images is of Pope John, when asked why the Council was needed, reportedly opening a window and saying, I want to throw open the windows of the Church so that we can see out and the people can see in. He invited other Christian Churches to send observers to the Council. Acceptances came from both Protestant and Orthodox Churches. The Russian Orthodox Church, in fear of the Communist Soviet Government, accepted only when assured that the Council would be apolitical in nature. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Vatican_II) 2.What teachings of the church, if any, were actually changed during the Vatican II Council? 3

ANSWER: The Catholic Catechism will tell us that Vatican II did not change the doctrines; it only appeared to change the doctrines. This is the present Catechism of the Catholic Church article 816, The sole Church of Christ which our Savior, after his Resurrection, entrusted to Peters pastoral care, commissioning him and the other apostles to extend and rule it This Church, constituted and organized as a society in the present world, subsists in the Catholic Church The Second Vatican Councils Decree on Ecumenism explains: For it is through Christs Catholic Church alone, which is the universal help towards salvation, that the fullness of the means of salvation can be obtained. Further Questions Answered, Bonaventure Hinwood OFM, Vatican II teaches in several places that the Catholic Church, and it alone, is the Church founded by Jesus Christ. September 5, 2000 The Independent, It must be always clear that the one, holy, catholic and apostolic universal church is not the sister, but the mother of all the churches. Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, (Pope Benedict XVI) NOTE: Theres been no change in doctrine, only Protestants believe that there has been a change of doctrine. 3.What was written during Vatican II about the liturgy? ANSWER: The participation in the Celebration should be internal, but Must be, on the other hand, external also internal participation by gestures and bodily attitudes, by the acclamations, responses and singing. NOTE: So, there was to be a subtle shift in the emphasis of worship from the Word of God to the singing. Which is taking place in much of the protestant world at the 4

present time as well. 4.According to the late, Pope John Paul II, what was essential for unity among Christian Churches? ANSWER: For unity, all churches must accept papal authority. 5.Does the Bible teach that the Catholicism would once again be prominent again? Revelation 13:8 > And ____ that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. NOTE: Indeed it does, the majority of the population of this planet will worship by following the civil legislation that finds its origin in the church of Rome. 6.Are churches today forgetting the high cost of the reformation? Lutheran leader says Pope might be global spokesperson for all Christians. Friday Church News Notes, July 6, 2001. Ishmael Noko, general secretary of the Lutheran World Fellowship, said in March that Lutherans can certainly look to the Pope as one of the spiritual leaders in the world today. He went on to say that the ecumenical movement requires Christians to look into the possibility that the Pope should become the global spokesperson for all Christians. Time Magazine, A half-Millennium Rift: Lutherans and Catholics reach agreement on the issues that once split 5

western Christianity in two. And by 1999, November 1, churches end 500-year rift so the Lutherans acknowledged the Pope. 7.What is the World Council of Churches? ANSWER: The World Council of Churches (WCC) is the broadest and most inclusive among the many organized expressions of the modern ecumenical movement, a movement whose goal is Christian unity. The WCC brings together more than 340 churches, denominations and church fellowships in over 100 countries and territories throughout the world, representing some 550 million Christians and including most of the worlds Orthodox churches, scores of denominations from such historic traditions of the Protestant Reformation as Anglican, Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist and Reformed, as well as many united and independent churches. While the bulk of the WCCs founding churches were European and North American, today most are in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America, the Middle East and the Pacific. For its member churches, the WCC is a unique space: one in which they can reflect, speak, act, worship and work together, challenge and support each other, share and debate with each other. As members of this fellowship, WCC member churches: - are called to the goal of visible unity in one faith and one eucharistic fellowship;- promote their common witness in work for mission and evangelism;engage in Christian service by serving human need, breaking down barriers between people, seeking justice and peace, and upholding the integrity of creation; and - foster renewal in unity, worship, mission and service. http://wcc-coe.org/ wcc/who/index-e.html 8.What is the role of the WCC with the Ecumenical Movement?

ANSWER: The modern ecumenical movement began in the late 19th and early 20th century, when Christians began to pray and work together across denominational boundaries. By the close of the 1920s, several pioneering movements had been formed to advance the cause of church unity worldwide. In 1937, church leaders agreed to establish a World Council of Churches, and in August 1948, representatives of 147 churches assembled in Amsterdam to constitute the WCC. Since then, a growing number of churches on every continent have joined this search for Christian unity. They have built new bridges over ancient chasms separating believers from one another. As their relationships with each other have changed, so too has the role of the WCC within the ecumenical movement. The ecumenical movement encourages cooperation and sharing, and common witness and action by churches. It seeks to renew the church through activities and networks among clergy and lay people, especially women and youth. It seeks visible unity, not as an end in itself, but to give credible witness so that the world may believe, and to serve the healing of the human community and the wholeness of Gods entire creation. While it shares in other forms of international, intercultural and interreligious cooperation and dialogue, the ecumenical movement is rooted in the life of the Christian churches. And while it has worldwide scope (oikoumene means the whole inhabited earth), it is particularly interested in the true being and life of the church as an inclusive community, in each place and in all places. ttp://wcc-coe.org/wcc/who/ index-e.html NOTE: This sounds very good. But what must be thrown to the ground to have such a unity? The truth, and when 7

you throw the truth down, you throw Jesus down, for Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life. 9.Who was one of the WCC main spokespersons? Associate Professor Chung Hyun Kyung, graduated from Ewha Womens University in Seoul with the B.A. (1979) and the M.A. (1981). She holds the M.Div. from the School of Theology at Claremont (1984), a diploma from the Womens Theological Center in Boston (1984), and the Ph.D. from Union Theological Seminary (1989). She is a lay theologian of the Presbyterian Church of Korea, as well as once having become a temporary Buddhist novice nun. In 1999, she lived for a year in a Buddhist monastery in the Himalayas studying mediation. Now she is in the process of becoming a dharma teacher at the Kwan Eum Zen School in New York City. She first came to international attention in 1991, when she made a now famous speech a feminist/Asian/ Third World interpretation of the Holy Spiritat the World Council of Churches in Canberra, Australia. She defines herself as a salimist (Korean Eco-feminist) from the Korean word salim, which means making things alive. h t t p : / / w w w. u t s n y c . e d u / N E TC O M M U N I T Y / Pa g e . aspx?&pid=355 10.What did Chung Hyun Kyung speak about during her famous speech at the WCC in Canberra, Australia? One of the key speakers was Korean professor Chung Hyun-Kyung, who exalted pagan concepts of God. Of the Holy Spirit Chung said, Dont bother the Spirit by calling her all the time. She is working hard with us. Eighteen times Chung summoned the spirits of the dead who have suffered injustices in the past and claimed that without hearing the cries of these spirits, we cannot hear the voice of the Holy Spirit. After calling on the spirits of the dead,

Chung said, I hope the presence of all our ancestors spirits here with us shall not make you uncomfortable. She also summoned the spirit of Earth, Air, and Water. She blasphemously claimed the Holy Spirit was the same as the image of Kwan In, an Asian goddess of compassion and wisdom. Chung went even further in her blasphemy when she said, Perhaps this might also be a feminine image of the Christ who is the first born among us, one who goes before and brings others with her. For these unspeakable blasphemies Chung received a standing ovation from the WCC delegates! http://www.wayoflife.org/otimothy/ti010003.htm She explains: I came from a Shamanist, Buddhist and Confucian and Taoist and Christian tradition when I look at our history of religion, we have more than 5000 years of Shamanism, more than 2000 years of Taoism, and almost 2000 years of Buddhism, 700 years of Confucianism and only 100 years of Protestantism in Korea. Therefore, whenever I go to temples and look at Buddha, I feel so young Buddha died in his 80s and Jesus died when he was 33. Maybe Jesus should be called Too young to understand. wow, I feel like my bowel is Shamanist, my heart is Buddhist, my right Brain is Confucianist, and my left brain is Christian, Kyung continued. I call it a family of gods and they are together. 11.What were some of the worship songs like during this meeting? TEACH US TO KNOW & LOVE YOU O God of a thousand names and faces, Mother and father of all life on earth, You who live in the cells of all life, Teach us to know and love you. Lady of peace, of love, of wisdom, 9

Lord of all the stars and planets, Best consoler, inward guest, Teach us to know and love you. BLESSING THE BREAD In the beginning was God, in the beginning, the source of all that is, In the beginning, God yearning, God, moaning, God, labouring, God, rejoicing,And God loved what SHE had made ,And God said, It is good.,Then God, knowing that all that is good is shared held the earth tenderly in HER arms, God yearned for relationship, God longed to share the good earth, And humanity was born in the yearning of God, We were born to share the earth... God said, You are my people,, My friends, My lovers, My sisters, And brothers, All of you shall eat, of the bread, And the power, All shall eat. Then God, gathering up HER courage in love, said, Let there be bread! And Gods sisters, HER friends and lovers, knelt on the earth planted the seeds prayed for the rain sang for the grain made the harvest cracked the wheat pounded the corn kneaded the dough kindled the fire filled the air with the smell of fresh bread And there was bread! And it was good! I BELIEVE I believe in God, MOTHER-FATHER SPIRIT who called the world into being, who created men and women and set them free to live in love, in obedience and community. I believe in God, who because of love for HER creation, entered the world to share our humanity, to rejoice and to despair, to set before us the paths of life and death; to be rejected, to die, but finally to conquer death and to bind the world to HERSELF.

PRAYER OF ST. ANSELM And Thou, Jesus, sweet Lord, Art Thou not also a mother? Truly, THOU ART A MOTHER, And Thou, Jesus, sweet Lord, Art Thou not also a MOTHER? THE MOTHER OF ALL MOTHERS, Who tasted death, In Thy desire to give life to Thy children. BAKERWOMAN GOD Bakerwoman God, I am your living bread. Strong, brown, Bakerwoman God, I am your low, soft and being-shaped loaf. I am your rising bread, well-kneaded by some divine and knotty pair of knuckles, by your warm earth-hands. I am bread well-kneaded. Put me in your fire, Bakerwoman God, put me in your own bright fire. Break me, Bakerwoman God. I am broken under your caring Word. Drop me in your special juice in pieces. Drop me in your blood. Drunken me in the great red flood. Self-giving chalice, swallow me. My skin shines in the divine wine. My face is cup-covered and I drown. I fall up in a red pool in a gold world where your warm sunskin hand is there to catch and hold me. Bakerwoman God, remake me. http://www.wayoflife.org/otimothy/ ti010003.htm NOTE: It seems as if this has been taken from Revelation Chapter 17. This is a worship service that brings everyone, all religions back to Rome. Now remember that Gary Kah said the ancient Babylonian religion through Kabbalism etc. through to Freemasonry controls Marxism, the American Secret Political Societies, the International Baking, and the World Council of Churches. Do you think he might have been right? With their teaching, Jesus was wrong, he was too young to understand we have nature worship all of these things, that is definitely not biblical.

12.What philosophy and religion did world famous preacher Norman Vincent Peale adhere to? Freemasonry has always welcomed men of all faiths and religious beliefs to enter its doors. The only requirement is for good men to believe in the Supreme Architect and the immortality of the soul. Norman Vincent Peale, Masonic Scottish Rite Journal 33rd degree magazine http://www. srmason-sj.org/council/fmrel.htm. Masons, in fact, go beyond narrow sectarianism and limiting dogma. They agree with the statement of the famous statesman and writer Edmund Burke: The body of all true religion consists, to be sure, in obedience to the will of the Sovereign of the world, in a confidence in His declarations, and in imitation of His perfection. I have foundthat the Scottish Rite and the Symbolic Lodge espouse the belief of no one religion, but are a respecter of all major religions of the world. NOTE: Thats what Norman Vincent Peale said who was a 33 degree Freemason. It is also worthy of note, that Billy Graham the worlds most famous protestant evangelist called Norman Vincent Peale his mentor. 13.What does mega-preacher Robert Schuller teach about the Bible and Jesus? Robert Schuller: Quotes from Self-Esteem: The New Reformation, he writes, Classical theology has erred in its insistence that theology be God-centered, not mancentered (p. 64). 12

One classical role of the pulpit in Protestantism has been to preach sermons which imply indoctrination more than education. Within this form of communication, there is an inherent, intrinsic inclination to intimidate, manipulate, and, hence, offend the persons most prized quality of humanness his dignity. (p. 153) Sin is any act or thought that robs myself or another human being of his or her self-esteem (p. 14) Schuller said, Jesus had an ego. He said, I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men unto me. Wow, what an ego trip He was on! 8/12/80 Phil Donahue Show. Questioner: How could the cross, as you write, sanctify the ego trip, and make us proud, in the light of passages that say, I hate pride and arrogance (Prov. 8:13), Pride goes before destruction (Prov. 16:18), The Lord detests all the proud (Prov. 16:5), Do not be proud (Rom. 12:16), Love does not boast, it is not proud (1 Cor. 13:4). In fact Paul warns Timothy that in the last days men will be lovers of themselves (2 Tim. 3:2). Why should we do anything to encourage people to become lovers of themselves if Paul in fact warned others that that would be the state of godlessness in the last days? Schuller: I hope you [preach this] because you could do a lot of damage to a lot of beautiful people. if you preach that text, oh man, I sure hop you give it the kind of interpretation that I do, or Ill tell you, youll drive them farther away and theyll be madder than hell at you and theyll turn the Bible off, and theyll switch you off, and theyll turn on the rock music and Madonna. Just because its in the Bible doesnt mean you should preach it. it is so difficult to preach some of those texts and not come across as lacking humility 11/92 radio interview with

13

Robert Schuller Rapidnet.com. Robert Schuller: what sets me apart from fundamentalists [is that they] are trying to convert everybody to believe how they believe. We know the things the major faiths can agree on. We try to focus on those without offending those with different view-points. (3/23/89, USA Today). Schuller said: When we know we have been redeemed and we know we are part of Gods family, we are ready to dream that great divine dream of building the kingdom of God in the world. (Source: 5/97, Sword and Trumpet.) Schuller said: I dont think anything has been done in the name of Christ that and under the banner of Christianity that has proven more destructive to human personality and, hence, counterproductive to the evangelism enterprise than the often crude, uncouth, and unchristian strategy of attempting to make people aware of their lost and sinful condition. (Time, March 18, 1985). The most effective mantras employ the M sound. You can get the feel of it by repeating the words, I am, I am many times over. Transcendental Meditation or TM is not a religion nor is it necessarily anti-Christian. (Peace of Mind Through Possibility Thinking, pp. 131-32). NOTE: It is interesting that Robert Schuller, according to a variety of different sources is a 33rd Degree Freemason. It seems that his teaching is in perfect harmony with that organization. 14.Who did Protestant evangelist, Billy Graham, meet with in 1981? 14 The Religious News Services reported on January 13, 1981,

Pope John Paul II was closeted for almost two hours with the Rev. Billy Graham, the worlds best-known Protestant evangelist. 15.What did Pope John Paul II say during an interfaith meeting in 1999? ANSWER: The Pontiff told the assembled Buddhist monks, Zoroastrian priests, Catholic cardinals, Hindu gurus, American Indian shamen, Jewish rabbis, and ecumenical clergy thats all the Protestants that there are, that all must join in condemning, The Christian fundamentalists who abuse speech and whose efforts at converting others incite hatred and violence. All present were in accord on two key points: (1) Pope John Paul II was endorsed by consensus as the planets chief spiritual guide and overseer; And (2) Religious fundamentalists who refuse to go along with the global ecumenical movement are to be silenced. They must be denounced as dangerous extremists full of hate. (True bible believers denounced at Papal Conference. Power of Prophecy (March 2000, Vol. 2000-03, p. 3). NOTE: Thats why we have hate laws, youre not supposed to preach this message, youre not supposed to preach that Jesus Christ is Lord, then you are a dangerous extremist full of hate. 16.Like the apostles of old, what decision do we need to make? Acts 5:27-29, And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them, Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this mans blood upon us.

15

Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to ______ God rather than ____.

MY DECISION FOR JESUS One day soon, this message about Jesus Christ, will become very dangerous to present. Jesus has never been popular, and He never will be. When Jesus was on this earth He was crucified, and today the devil still hates Jesus, that is why he wants to crucify the message for this time. But, Praise God, Jesus did not stay on the cross, therefore the message for this time will be resurrected as well. Do you desire in your heart to stand for Jesus? To obey Him no matter what the entire world does? How is this possible? Friends, I believe that we need to know him, Jesus said in John 17:3, This is life eternalthat they might know me. Do you commit today, to really, sincerely and truly, acquaint yourself with Him at be at peace? Yes or No
