A Little Late ?

Asked if he personally supported same-sex marriage, Clinton replied, "Yeah." "I personally support people doing what they want to do," Clinton said. "I think it's wrong for someone to stop someone else from doing that [same-sex marriage]."

Why do politicians only make sense when they are not running for anything ?

" The number of the saved is as few as the number of grapes left after the vinepickers have passed." St. John Mary Vianney

" The greater number of Christians today are damned. The destiny of those dying on one day is that very few--not as many as ten-- went straight to heaven; many remained in purgatory; and those cast into hell were as numerous as snowflakes in mid-winter." Blessed Anna Maria Taigi

" Yes, indeed, many will be damned; few will be saved." St. Benedict Joseph Labre

Saint Louis-Marie’s "The number of the elect is so small - so small - that were we to know how small it is, we should faint away with grief. The number of the elect is so small that were God to assemble them together, He would cry to them, as He did of old, by the mouth of His prophet, ‘Gather yourselves together, one by one’ - one from this province, one from that kingdom."


" With the exception of those who die in childhood, most men will be damned." St. Regimius of Rheims

" The saved are few, but we must live with the few if we would be saved with the few. O God, too few indeed they are: yet amongst those few I wish to be!" St. Alphonsus Marie Ligouri

"Beyond a doubt, the elect are few." St. Augustine

"There are many who arrive at the faith, but few that are lead into the heavenly kingdom." Evang. Hom. XIX, Pope Gregory the Great

"The majority of men shall not see God, excepting those who live justly, purified by righteousness and by every other virtue." St. Justin Martyr

"a greater number is lost through false confidence than through excessive fear." (Sinner's Guide, Ven. Louis of Granada)

"I had the greatest sorrow for the many souls that condemned themselves to Hell, especially those Lutherans. [...] I saw souls falling into hell like snowflakes."
St. Teresa of Avila

"There are many who arrive at the faith, but few who are led into the heavenly kingdom. Behold how many are gathered here for today's Feast-Day: we fill the church from wall to wall. Yet who knows how few they are who shall be numbered in that chosen company of the Elect?" Pope St. Gregory the Great

"The greater number of men still say to God: Lord we will not serve Thee; we would rather be slaves of the devil, and condemned to Hell, than be Thy servants. Alas! The greatest number, my Jesus - we may say nearly all - not only do not love Thee, but offend Thee and despise Thee. How many countries there are in which there are scarcely any Catholics, and all the rest either infidels or heretics! And all of them are certainly on the way to being lost." St. Alphonsus Maria Liguori

Jude, a slave of Jesus Christ and brother of James, 2 to those who are called, beloved in God the Father and kept safe for Jesus Christ: may mercy, peace, and love be yours in abundance. Beloved, although I was making every effort to write to you about our common salvation, I now feel a need to write to encourage you to contend for the faith that was once for all handed down to the holy ones. For there have been some intruders, who long ago were designated for this condemnation, godless persons, who pervert the grace of our God into licentiousness and who deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. I wish to remind you, although you know all things, that (the) Lord who once saved a people from the land of Egypt later destroyed those who did not believe. The angels too, who did not keep to their own domain but deserted their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains, in gloom, for the judgment of the great day. Likewise, Sodom, Gomorrah, and the surrounding towns, which, in the same manner as they, indulged in sexual promiscuity and practiced unnatural vice, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire. Similarly, these dreamers nevertheless also defile the flesh, scorn lordship, and revile glorious beings. Yet the archangel Michael, when he argued with the devil in a dispute over the body of Moses, did not venture to pronounce a reviling judgment upon him but said, "May the Lord rebuke you!" But these people revile what they do not understand and are destroyed by what they know by nature like irrational animals. Woe to them! They followed the way of Cain, abandoned themselves to Balaam's error for the sake of gain, and perished in the rebellion of Korah. These are blemishes on your love feasts, as they carouse fearlessly and look after themselves. They are waterless clouds blown about by winds, fruitless trees in late autumn, twice dead and uprooted. They are like wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shameless deeds, wandering stars for whom the gloom of darkness has been reserved forever." (Jude 1-14).

I'm sorry, Veritas, I thought you had posted anonymously.

Please accept my apology, and please keep up the dialogue.

I want to learn more about Prince of Peace and his message of love and Salvation.

Meditate very carefully on these passages.

I'm not familiar with Lucifer's Theology, having never studied it; perhaps you can educate me ?

My God asks me to love my neighbor, even my enemies, to treat everyone with kindness and to not judge.

He asks that I treat all with the dignity due His creation, and consider ans meet the needs of the least among us.

He also condemns certain behaviors John

Why is it you only focus on the parts of the Bible that please you John?

Isn't that what you accuse the right of doing? You know, shellfish etc..

Why won't you admit that Christianity does not accept homosexuality?

The Patriot

John said...

Homosexuality is, as is Heterosexuality, an orientation. Nothing more, nothing less.

It is morally nuetral. Immoral or moral behavior is common to all people.

Jesus says nothing about it, but strongly hints that he thinks gay people are fabulous.

This site is Luciferic and is consecrated to the Devil. It is nothing short of demonic.

John said...

Luciferic would make a cool name for a heavy metal band.

You don't happen to own the trademark, do you ?

John Hosty-Grinnell said...

Demonic... now where have a heard that term used for us before... ;)

The only thing demonic are the false profits out there trying to turn Chrisitanity into a fear based religion. Jesus was about love and the wisdom of that message prevails even today. There is absolutely nothing about homosexuality in the Gospel, that's how important He found it to be.

Tell you what, you pray for me and I'll pray for you. Then perhaps the healing will begin and we can continue as respectful neighbors instead of what you are currently doing.

Gos won't hear you. You are a demoniac. Saint Peter Damian, Doctor of the Church explains that the vice of sodomy "surpasses the enormity of all others," because:
"Without fail, it brings death to the body and destruction to the soul. It pollutes the flesh, extinguishes the light of the mind, expels the Holy Spirit from the temple of the human heart, and gives entrance to the devil, the stimulator of lust: It leads to error, totally removes truth from the deluded mind . . . It opens up Hell and closes the gates of Paradise . . . It is this vice that violates temperance, slays modesty, strangles chastity, and slaughters virginity . . . It defiles all things, sullies all things, pollutes all things . . .

"This vice excludes a man from the assembled choir of the Church . . . it separates the soul from God to associate it with demons: This utterly diseased queen of Sodom renders him who obeys the laws of her tyranny infamous to men and odious to God . . . She strips her knights of the armor of virtue, exposing them to be pierced by the spears of every vice. . ."

This site belongs to the Devil.

sameh, I'd like you to go to Twitter and follow me again. I misunderstood what you meant by the Nazi flag and thought you supported their ideas before you explained. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and I hope we have more communications.

Shokran!
