John MacArthur

Unmasking the Pope and the Catholic System

It really pains me to hear of “Christians” who want to steer clear of topics like this; or websites like this one, and how they would rather bury their heads in the sand just to avoid being labeled as “Politically Incorrect”, “Intolerant”, or “too Judgmental”.To me, people with this perspective, especially spiritually illiterate, weak, so-called complacent Christians who are of the “tolerant” mindset; and who are holding on too tightly to materialism and the deceiving, pathetic hope this current world offers are an embarrassment to the body of Christ.I’m certainly not a perfect Christian; and barely a decent one at best… but Wake-up “Christians… Body of Christ”, open your bibles and dig into God’s infallible Word, come back to your “first love” that will never pass away and allow the Holy Spirit to open your eyes to it’s prophetic truth that has NEVER missed the mark on prophecy… NO OTHER SOURCE EVEN COMES CLOSEto it’s accuracy!

“Anyone who could deny that we aren’t living in the “end-times” is hopelessly ignorant of the unfolding events, or deliberately unwilling or unable to realistically assess the glaring facts.” (Mark Hitchcock)

John MacArthurJohn MacArthur is a true solider for Christ out on the front lines combating the enemy. Ever since I obtained his message on “How To Study God’s Word”, I was sold on his theology, delivery, and sincerity to share the Gospel of Christ.

In this message Pastor MacArthur exposes the long history of ritual and institutional cobwebs of deception that is drilled into its followers to earn sanctification through obedience to the law of the church known as Roman Catholicism.

Put on your headphones; turn up your speakers and listen to:  Unmasking the Pope and the Catholic System.

Also: I highly encourage every Catholic to read this inspirational testimony of a former Catholic Priest who has learned that he had a choice to successfully step away from the deceptive bondage of Catholicism as Supreme Authority and find a new life through a personal, born-again relationship with Jesus Christ at the age of 48, and to depend on Him alone.

    I was born and raised a Catholic. I denounced my Catholicism after I was saved at the age of 19. On a side note I have a personal and sad thing to say about just exactly what Catholicism will lead to.

    My Father was dying of cancer a few years ago. I can remember him asking my Mother as to whether or not he would go to Heaven if he was “good” enough. I soberly watched my Father deteriorate over time knowing that if he was not saved the answer to his question he would find out when he slipped from this world into the next. And with the question he asked my Mother I can assume just where that is. Very sad indeed. I witnessed to my Father on numerous occasions to no avail. He kept on explaining to me that he became a Catholic at the age of 14 and would be one ever since. I can remember him “trying” so hard. He became Eucharistic minister in the Catholic Church. He went to numerous “holy sites”. So very sad. I only hope that in the last week of his life when he was barely conscious he was saved.

    I can only hope.

    Kyle… thx for your powerful comment and testimony. My biggest fear in life is to be in your shoes. I’ve played in my mind over and over that exact same scenario; because still to this day my father too feels trapped in the bondage of Catholicism even though he left the church at the age of 13. Unfortunately, he has never been able to accept any form of the truth at all. Talk about the power of bondage, bitterness, and most of all, Pride!

    He’s now nearing 70, at this time he still appears to be pretty healthy; however, we never know when that day of transition will come. I still pray that God will allow his heart to be softened to the Gospel, and his spiritual eyes be awakened to the truth and the eternal hope that Christ provides through a personal relationship with Him.

    I don’t care that people may think I’m being judgmental, paranoid, or negative when it comes to this topic. I’ve witnessed first hand what the Roman Catholic religious system has done to my father and that is why this topic is very personal and important to me.

    I pray that everyone will come out of her just as God commanded, and John wrote in Rev 18:4-8. Therefore, yes, I believe that “Mystery Babylon” is the worldwide Roman Catholic church as we were starting to discuss on the other web-post. I will be posting reasonable proof here that the Vatican City is the “Mystery, Babylon the Great, The Mother of Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth” soon! And I challenge anyone to read Rev 17-18 with Vatican City in mind.

    Thank you again for sharing your testimony… any advice you may have for what time is still left for me to share with my father would be greatly appreciated.

    It’s too bad more people just don’t read the Owners Manual, and they would not be so easily deceived. Now I understand more clearly why the Catholic cult does NOT want their membership to read their Owners Manual. Just a little time in the Bible, and the deception begins to be revealed, the questions arise, for which there are no good answers.

    I don’t know if I buy that the Pope is Satan, I’d say that he is more likely deluded, but not likely Satan. From what I’ve read, Satan will have power over all of the world, Not just a few million sadly ill informed people.

    Yes, it’s a real sad time that we’re experiencing now. Nevertheless, it must get worse before it gets better for those who will be left behind.

    It’s believed that the next, and final Pope, will be the False Prophet; influenced by Satan; influencing all to worship the Beast (Anti-Christ). The False Prophet will be the one to implement the “Mark of the Beast” just after the start of the Great Tribulation (Mid Trib); which I believe is the Dec 21, 2012 Winter Solstice (Mayan Calendar End Date). Meaning that the Tribulation should start around the summer of 2009 if my theory proves correct.

    Man, Why is everyone posting here so gloomy. Why wouldn’t your dad be in heaven smiling down? My grandmother just passed away. She was Catholic and a good person. I know she is in heaven smiling down watching us drink wine and be happy. All this end time baloney is crazy. I am sure that good people, helpful people will hang out in heaven, be playing golf, playing music, drinking wine. Can’t beleive you think your dad might not be there. Just because he might not have been saved? Come on. He is there and watching and loving you.

    Unfortunately, God does not grade on the curve. Just because people may be “good” doesn’t get them into Heaven (Are You Good Enough To Get Into Heaven?).

    As Christ told Nicodemus (John 3), one must be born of the Spirit and of Water. Many people believe in Jesus, but never accept Him as their Lord & Savior. Even Satan and the Demons believe in Jesus, but do not accept Him.

    Christ tells us that the road is broad to get to hell, and very narrow to get into Heaven (Matt 7:13-14). And unfortunately, there will be many Catholics who have been deceived by it’s leadership following it’s traditions and works based theology who will most likely not make it into Heaven (Matt 7:21-23). Of course that isn’t limited to just Catholics. Christ wants a relationship with people, not robots who try to work their way into heaven. If Salvation is works based then Christ died for no reason. All religions are works based except for True Christianity.

    Eph 2:8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.

    Every Catholic that I’ve ever known who realized this and became “born-again” has always left the Catholic church. Through this experience their eyes are finally opened to the truth. Try reading Rev 17 & 18 with the Vatican City and the Catholic church in mind. I think you’ll find it very eye opening as well.

    I thank our almighty God and Father for calling me out of the catholic church(no capitalization required for that profane church). I came to know God at an early age(4 or 5), however, I was taught the catholic theology. Catholic theology differed so greatly from the word of God, that I was often at odds with my mother and catechism teachers. What I read from God’s word was so different from what was being told to me by my church. The pope, bishops and priests, cofession, pennance, communion, praying to Mary, etc.. how disgusting. Thank you God, our Father and Creator, my Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, for leading me out of that church of bondage and damnation. Amen.

    The beast with two horns of Rev.13 is the POPE and the two horns are 1. the Holy See and 2. the State of Vatican City. They are two separate and sovereign entities each with the Pope as Head of State. The image of the beast with seven heads ten horns and ten crowns is the European Union. M. Arsene Heitz a mailroom clerk for the Council of Europe designed the current E.U. Flag. Mr Heitz took his inspiration for the flag from Rev.12:1 the woman with the crown of 12 stars. The whore church (Roman Catholic Church) claims that that woman is Mary. The Council of Europe adopted the flag on Dec.8,1955. Dec.8th is the anniversary of the so called “Immaculate Conception of Mary”. The E.U. Flag is a “Queen of Heaven”flag! Leon Marchal,former Secretary General of the Council of Europe said that the flag is the “corona stellarum duodecim” the “crown of twelve stars”. There is an direct connection to the E.U. and the two horned beast(whore) with that flag. The Treaty of Rome was signed on March 25,1957. March 25th is the anniversary of the so called Annunciation of Mary. Nine months after the so called Annunciation is Dec.25th the date the whore says the Lord was born. There is a direct connection between the founding of the E.U. on March 25,1957 and the two horned beast (whore). March 25th was the Vernal Equinox and Dec.25th was the Winter Solstice on the Julian Calendar which is named for Julius Caesar. The calendar has been changed to the present Gregorian Calendar(whore calendar) which is named after Pope Gregory Xlll. As a result the cycles of the sun no longer exactly align with the dates. I must clarify the Babylonian religion at this point. God promised that the true savior of mankind would be born of a woman, this is seen in the Book of Genesis. The fact that the savior was to be born of a woman was “COMMON KNOWLEDGE” known by Adam and Eve and all their descendants. This same common knowledge was retained by Noah and his sons and their wives and thus was known by everyone after the flood. Nimrod saw that the pregnancy term of women was 9 months. Nimrod matched the 9 month pregnancy cycle to the Vernal Equinox March 25th and the Winter Solstice Dec.25th which also is exactly 9 months to the day. That is why the mother and child can be seen across the Earth in various cultures and civilazations throughout this age. They all have the same thing in common, conception on the Vernal Equinox and birth on the Winter Solstice. Nimrod counterfeited the promise given by God in the Book of Genesis that the Savior would be born of woman! This counterfeit(whore) system has continued ever since.Nimrod established cities and built the Tower of Babel. The Solar religion of Babylon along with their Sun God and the Queen of Heaven worship has been retained by the Whore. For example, in Rome on March 25th the Vernal Equinox(Julian Calendar)the Hilaria Matris Deum(joy of the mother of the gods)was celebrated. The same day was also known as the Magna Mater (Great Mother). The same system from Babylon was retained by the Holy See and the State of Vatican City. March25th became the feast of the Annunciation of Mary( March25,1957,Treaty of Rome).The European Union is created as an image of a beast that has seven heads ten horns and ten crowns. The Council of Europe issued a poster showing a modern Tower of Babel being built up to the heavens penetrating the stars of the Queen of Heaven (E.U. Flag).This is Babylonian Whoredom! The phrase,” Europe: many tongues,one voice” also appears on the poster. The lawful Seat of the Parliament of the European Union is located in Strasbourg ,France in its new building, the Tower of Babel (Louise Weiss Building). The IMAGE( E.U.) speaks(Rev.13) and it does so from the TOWER OF BABEL!!!! The POPE is the BEAST with two horns and the horns are 1.the Holy See and 2. the State of Vatican City and the image that speaks is the EUROPEAN UNION (Rev.13)

    Pontifex Maximus Caligula (little boots) brought an obelisk from Heliopolis (Sun City) Egypt in order to erect it at the Circus Vaticanus which he had begun to construct. Caligula did not finish the Circus Vaticanus. Pontifex Maximus Nero did finish construction of the Circus Vaticanus. The standing stone, a solid red granite obelisk was adored by Nero. He made himself out to be the Sun God and held sexual orgies involving the red granite obelisk. The obelisk is phallic in the sense that it was used as an instrument to determine the conception of the Sun God and the birth of the Sun God. The basilica called St. Peters is oriented east so that upon exiting the basilica you are facing exactly east into the rising sun. There the obelisk brought by Pontifex Maximus Caligula and moved by Pontifex Maximus Sixtus V stands in the middle of a solar wheel the design of which is in the pavement surrounding the obelisk. The Vernal Equinox is determined when the shadow of the phallus of the Sun God falls on an exact and known place within the solar wheel. This is the conception or Annunciation of the birth of the Sun God. The birth of the Sun God takes place exactly nine months later on the Winter Solstice. This is part of the Solar Religion.On the Julian Calendar the annunciation was on March 25 and the birth was Dec.25, the Vernal Equinox and Winter Solstice aligned with those dates. The whore merely changed clothes into so called christian attire. The solar religion was just repackaged into so called christianity. The gospel preached by the Holy See is alien to the Word of God. They preach an alien savior, another jesus. By accepting Dec.25 as the birth of the Lord you thereby concede March 25 as the annunciation of his birth. You are in company with the whore whether you know it or not and also whether you believe it or not. The Vernal Equinox and the Winter Solstice is the pattern of the Great Whore upon whose forehead these words are found : MYSTERY Babylon the great the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth. The flag of the E.U. is worship, the adoption date of the Treaty of Rome is worship, the Tower of Babel(Seat of E.U. Parliament) is also worship. There is much more worship and trafficking going on between people and the Whore.

    The beast with the seven heads ten horns and ten crowns, the two horned beast and the image all exist and operate simultaneously for a certain period of time. The Pope is the beast with two horns (1. the Holy See 2.the State of Vatican City) is also identified as the whore sitting on a city with seven hills. The State of Vatican City is sitting on Rome which is known as the city of seven hills. The image therefore is of a beast that spans time and of a whore that sits on a city with seven hills. The image (eikon) with life(pneuma) is the European Union. The two horned beast / whore has caused the people to make the image. The people already worship the beast and his image. This is my understanding. The information I believe to be true and the hour late. There is more to be fulfilled but based upon my understanding I conclude that we are on the brink of the seven year tribulation period. The Lord is more than ready to deal with satan and the wicked. The Lord has his Bride and satan has his whore. The Lord marries his Bride and live for ETERNITY together.When it’s all over satan and his whore are dead. Come out of her. Here comes Ezk. 38-39 next. This is what I believe.

    Lev.23 contains the pattern of the Lord. There are seven Holy Days listed. Passover, Unleavened Bread,First Fruits,Feast of Weeks,Feast of Trumpets,Day of Atonement and Feast of Tabernacles.The Messiah was crucified on Passover buried on Unleavened Bread and rose from the dead on First Fruits. The Holy Spirit was given to believers on the feast of weeks. I believe that the Lord will remove his Bride on the Feast of Trumpets, return on the Day of Atonement and celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles every year throughout his 1,000 year reign. The removal of the Bride is actually what I believe will happen next but that only applies to those that the Messiah takes. The Holy Days of the Lord reveal a marriage between the Lord and his Bride. The fulfillment of Ezk.38-39 is next in a worldly sense. This is what I believe. I do not claim to be good. Except for the grace of God I would be a defendant in God’s Court facing charges and from his court there is no appeal. We are saved by grace through faith and not of works lest any should boast. Behold, the Lamb of God who gave his life for us so that we can live, forever. Before the Lord alone will I bend the knee. I owe all to the Lord, apart from Him I am nothing and I have nothing. This is my true belief. I said what I said and that is it. I hope I have been of some help, thankyou and good bye

    For those Catholics who pull up this site inadvertently, thinking it to be about engineering, pray for those sponsoring it and commenting on it. The bigotry is evident as well as the need to express it. When you are attacked like this they know you possess the truth. Words like cult, beast, false prophet, accomodation, and paganism being attributed to your faith is classic bigotry. They have been trotted out for years. Remain steadfast in the one true faith. Follow the authority of the Bishops, Christ gave it to them. Remember that only through the Catholic faith exists apostolic succession. The sad ignorant souls above need to rant among themselves only to assuage their insecurity. Be charitable, my fellow Catholic, but be tough. Remember, that phony “front line soldier” in the picture above is only tough enough to take pot shots at friendlies…………..and that was my charity!

    GO TO: BISHOPACCOUNTABILITY.ORG then you’ll get a much better idea about the Roman Catholic Church. Josef Ratzinger got out of a scandal because he was MADE “Pope”and has DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY as such.”Convenient” is one way of putting it. That was a very interesting letter written by the former GRAND INQUISITOR. You know, the letter written by Josef Ratzinger having to do with the SEX SCANDAL which by the way is subject to the “PONTIFICAL SECRET”. Now he has an alias, “Pope Benedict XVI”. He is the HEAD OF STATE of TWO sovereign entities, The Holy See and The State of Vatican City which is the BEAST with TWO HORNS of REVELATION 13. Once again go, to: BISHOPACCOUNTABILITY.ORG and examine every aspect of that page. Make sure you have a bucket nearby to throw up into because it will make you sick. The site by the way has been endorsed by many people including the N.H. State Attorney General. Keep in mind that bishops have knowingly transferred abusive priests not only to other parishes but into other countries. Those swine think GLOBALLY. Cardinal Law was sent to the State of Vatican City. These people aid and abet each other. They are nothing but scum on the way to HELL. I’ll be happy when that stinking church is gone. Believe me it will be gone a lot sooner than many people think.

    The Catholic System is the most evil system, which i believe stands behind all the wellknown conspiracy Elites, who are going to set up the Global Govermant, the “New World Order” in the next year(s).
    These Elites like Rothschild, Rockefeller, Warburg, Prinz Philip…. Barroso, Sarkozy, Brown =E.U., UN, CFR, Trilateral Commission etc.
    are invented, leveraged and run by the most evil and dangerous, highest and best-hidden Organizations coming directly out of the catholic system, the Jesuits and Illuminati.
    At least my conclusion from researching many months.

    Fact is in any case that the Popes want to reign the world, actually did it long long time, and still want it.
    One doesnt need more proof.
    Look in history.
    Look in doctrine of the church, which leads far away from Jesus!
    Look in the eyes of Ratzinger (eg googlepics).. what will you see…

    Here are some things to keep in mind. The Pope is the beast with two horns of Rev.13. The two horns are 1. the Holy See and 2. the State of Vatican City. The beast with two horns causes the people to make an IMAGE and that IMAGE is the EUROPEAN UNION. The beast with the seven heads ten horns and ten crowns, the beast with two horns and the Image all exist and operate simultaneously for a certain period of time. The people have been deceived for centuries. The people have a perception of reality based upon the system of the beast with two horns. The people are completely DELUDED. The seven heads are also a city of seven hills that the whore sits on. The beast with two horns and the whore are one and the same. The whore sits on Rome and so does the beast with two horns. The Pope is the Head of State of BOTH the Holy See and the State of Vatican City. The State of Vatican City sits on Rome. The Image is the European Union (E.U.).

    The Rev.13 image ( UNION of EUROPA, European Union) is also represented by Europa sitting upon a beast with two horns (Rape of Europa). The whore that sits upon the city of seven hills, ROME, is also sitting on a beast with two horns. The two horns are 1.The Holy See(Global Whore Church) and 2.The State of Vatican City (Seat of the Great Whore). The POPE is the BEAST with two horns and the E.U. is the IMAGE that the beast with two horns causes the people to make. It is interesting that one man has authority to act on behalf of the E.U. in the event of a crisis and he has that authority because of Recommendation 666 (FACT!). Right now that slot is filled by a Spaniard named Javier Solana CFSP(FACT). VERY INTERESTING, INDEED!

    You guys are nuts!! My children both attended Catholic schools and they believe in original sin and were taught that Jesus died for their sins.

    Perhaps many Catholics do simply attend church and know nothing about the Bible and Jesus but to try and say the Pope is the Antichrist is ridiculous!

    I doubt that ALL Catholids will be saved. i also doubt many who claim to be born-again will be saved.

    How do you feel about the Toronto Blessing and Catch The Fire Ministries? People who can’t even stand up, roll around drinking the wine poured by the “Holy Ghost Bartender” and snorting like pigs and who cannot speak one single sentence without making some weird noise or twitch? I’d rather take my chances with the Pope. At least they have enough composure not to oink like pigs while rolling around on the floor begging the “Holy Ghost Bartender” to make them appear even more stupid and out-of-control.

    BTW, I am a born-again Christian.

    A causal relationship and worship is proven between the beast with the two horns,the people and the creation of the image(rev.13) which is the European Union.

    The design and adoption date of the current E.U.flag proves a causal relationship and worship which is based upon the belief of the people in relation to the beast with the two horns regarding the creation of the image(European Union)!

    A causal relationship and worship is proven again concerning the BIRTH of the E.U.(image) with the signing of the Treaty of ROME! The Whore/Queen that sits upon the city of seven hills Rome is also seated upon a beast with two horns. The European Union (image Rev.13) is also represented by a Whore/Queen seated upon a beast with two horns, EUROPA!

    The evidence is conclusive. This is an absolute breakthrough!

    Dear Friends; there is very little doubt at all that the Internet has proven to be invaluable as the information highway from which virtually anyone at all can research practically any sort of subject matter whatsoever. In doing so, find good, reliable information relative to whatever topic matter they so like. However on the downside, it has also allowed vast numbers of heretics to paste whatever they like onto it. In doing so deceive masses and masses of good honest hard working people into believing something that is for that most part pure unadulterated BS. A lot of the heresy that we see floating around the Internet is based mainly on past doctrines that have now proven to be totally erroneous. But yet, there are still those who like to hang onto it mainly for their own financial benefit. It is those types who like to label others as being deceivers, when in fact it is they who are the deceivers. Accordingly, no matter what type of information is presented- or even how accurate that sort of information happens to be they choose to mainly ignore it simply because it is more convenient to do so mainly for the reason mentioned above. However, just lately the Lord has told me to just allow them to continue on as they like and not to argue or disagree with any of them and that he will deal with the whole load of them when the time is appropriate, as I am sure that he will. Whoa to those who try and profit from the word of God. It is those people who are neither hot nor cold but are lukewarm in the eyes of the Lord. Gods Richest Blessings.
