Vatican Promises Changes to Child Abuse Handling Following UN Accusations It Is Not Doing Enough
VATICAN AND A NEST OF STOMACH-CHURNING ABOMINATIONS IN THE FACE OF GOD
Thou shalt not lie with mankinde, as with womankinde: it is abomination.
– King James Version (1611)–
WARNING: THIS DOCUMENTARY IS “VERY” GRAPHIC IN NATURE AND SHOULD BE VIEWED BY “ADULTS” ONLY!
Have you ever had one of those morning’s when you get up, you have your coffee in hand, and welcoming the Lord for the beautiful sunshine filled day, then, bam a “dark cloud” hits your spirit? I was sifting thru my emails covering today’s news and one just hit me like a ton of rocks! The headline reads, “Secrets of the Vatican,” immediately I got such a heaviness in my spirit to point of feeling ill. It is a documentary that PBS did on the Vatican and the scandals that rocked Benedict’s papacy, including clergy sex abuse, and illuminating the challenges facing Pope Francis as he tries to reform the powerful Vatican bureaucracy. A complete transcript of this documentary can be viewed here.
The awakening moment for me as I was viewing the documentary was at the point about, “Legion of Christ (LC)∗ .”
They are a Roman Catholic congregation of pontifical right, consisting of priests and seminarians studying for the priesthood. It is associated with the apostolic movement of Regnum Christi . ∗ According to Wikipedia, the Regnum Christi includes lay persons and diocesan priests and has branches of lay Consecrated Men and Regnum Christi Consecrated Women.
The allegations of child abuse and other scandals come to the forefront when the victims of these atrocities’ committed by priests and others stood up for themselves and the UN took part in speaking out against it. Documented here the UN held a meeting confronting the Holy See on these charges of child abuse and requested an investigation be done.
Snippet of their request:
“The Committee considered the second periodic report of the Holy See (CRC/C/VAT/2) at its 1852nd meeting (see C/C/SR.1852), held on 16 January 2014, and adopted at its 1875th meeting, held on 31 January 2014, the following concluding observations.”∗
ACCOUNTIBILITY AND RESPONSIBILITY
Upon further investigation, I have to wonder about the accountability of the Roman Catholic church when I read this statement by Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, the Vatican’s U.N. ambassador in Geneva.
“Priests are not functionaries of the Vatican. Priests are citizens of their own states, and they fall under the jurisdiction of their own country,” Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, the Vatican’s U.N. ambassador in Geneva, told the committee.”
My point here is if the Roman Catholic Church does not step up and be held “accountable” and own up to the “responsibility” of being the “overseers” of their priests, laypeople, and their flock: how can they profess to have righteous standing in the presence of “The Sovereign God” who created us? We will all stand before the judgment seat of God. 11 For it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee will bow to me, and every tongue will give praise to God.” 12 Therefore, each of us will give an account of himself to God (Rom 14:10-12)..
The stark reality of Scripture is that every person, Christian and non-Christian, is accountable before a sovereign God (see Rom. 3:9-19) and will one day have to bow before Christ (Phil. 2:9-11). Jesus said, “From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, even more will be asked” (Luke 12:48b).
Through the Trinity, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, are co-eternal and co-equal, each being God of very God, Scripture gives evidence of an accountability that exists within the Godhead. The Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father through the Son to the believers (John 14:26; John 15:26;John 17:6) The Good Lord uses checks and balances to guide His children and all scripture is revealed to those who seek the Lord in His will and not our own. Jesus Christ exemplifies the “Perfect” example of not only accountability and responsibility, but also, in being humble, obedient, role of a servant, made in the likeness of man, being exalted by the Father in heaven (not by man) and was given a name “above” every name that on the “Day of Judgment” every knee shall bow and confess “Jesus Christ Lord .” Jesus sits at the Right Hand of the Father and is our “Advocate!” No man on earth is head of the Church of Jesus Christ.
HEREIN IS A “TREASURE TROVE” OF SCRIPTURES OF THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD
Apparently, someone is trying to have a show of accountability for priests and others who commit these atrocities’ against innocent children. I came across this site during my research which promotes headlines on stories of these atrocities’.
CONCLUSION OF THE MATTER
As I stated in the beginning, I welcoming the day the Lord had made (Ps. 118:24) and “bam” dark cloud when I read the PBS headline on “Secrets of the Vatican.” As Jesus stated, “Luke 17:2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.” The Day of Judgement is quickly coming! I have given scripture upon scripture above about this and that “both” believers and nonbelievers has to give an account for this life!! Believer’s in Christ Jesus will give an account before His Judgment Seat and nonbelievers will give an account before the Judgment Seat of God Almighty. Now I ask you, if you are among those of the Catholic Faith – Are you going to come out from among these “atrocities” (Ephesians 5:11 (AKJV) 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.) and repent and seek a relationship with Jesus Christ the only one who is the Head of the Body of Christ? No one is perfect except Jesus Chrsit! We are to allow the Holy Spirit to work within us and guide us in God’s Truth. He only says and does what He hears and sees Father God do! (1 John 5:7 For there are three that beare record in heauen, the Father, the Word, and the holy Ghost: and these three are one.) If this were not of “discernment” this article would not be on this page. However, as the Lord would have it, He weighed it heavily upon my heart to get the message out that the time is short and He is coming and very soon. DO NOT continue to be a part of ungodly things- seek Christ Jesus- before it is to late! God bless and all and my prayer is that eyes and ears will be opened and the revelation of God’s Word will pierce your hearts like lightning and souls saved to the Kingdom and Glory of God Almighty-In the name of Jesus-Amen
