… The Nicene creed says the spirit proceeds from the father. Any addition to that [could be unlawful]...
The Nicene Creed was modified (before the Filioque was added to it) at the Second Ecumenical Council – a council the Eastern 'Orthodox' claim to accept. It was modified (with additions and omissions) in 381 at the First Council of Constantinople. A series of statements about the Holy Spirit were added, including the very clause “who proceeds from the Father” (τὸ ἐκ τοῦ πατρὸς ἐκπορευόμενον). Some of the other changes made to the 325 Nicene Creed (at the 381 First Council of Constantinople) include:
- The words “of Heaven and of Earth” (οὐρανοῦ καὶ γῆς) were added.
- The words “before all the ages” (πρὸ πάντων τῶν αἰώνων) were added.
- The words “that is, from the essence of the Father” (τουτέστιν ἐκ τῆς ουσίας τοῦ πατρός) were omitted.
- The canon/anathema at the end of the Creed was omitted.
- The section on the Holy Spirit was enlarged from five words to twenty-eight words with these additions: “… the Lord and Giver of life, who proceeds from the Father, who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, who spoke by the prophets…”
- Statements about baptism, the forgiveness of sins, and the resurrection were added, including: “… one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church; we acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; we look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.”
Even in the 381 expanded version of the Creed (known as the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed) the term homoousios (ὁμοούσιος – consubstantial) is not used in reference to the Holy Spirit, even though that is of course the true position. The Creed does not explicitly call the Holy Spirit ‘God’. Rather, it teaches the divinity of the Holy Spirit in other ways, by stating that He is ‘life-giving’, ‘co-worshipped and glorified’, etc.
First Council of Constantinople
With regard to the Council of Chalcedon’s statement that it is unlawful to “deliver a different symbol [creed]”, that was a disciplinary decree that sought to forbid other unapproved symbols from being used to convert people. It did not stop later councils – including the very next council, the Second Council of Constantinople in 553 – from promulgating dogmatic canons that served as rules of faith that must be accepted by new converts and everyone else.
Council of Chalcedon, 5th session, 451: “These things, therefore, having been expressed by us with the greatest accuracy and attention, the holy Ecumenical Synod defines that no one shall be suffered to bring forward a different faith (heteran pistin), nor to write, nor to put together, nor to excogitate, nor to teach it to others. But such as dare either to put together another faith, or to bring forward or to teach or to deliver a different creed (heteron sumbolon) to as wish to be converted to the knowledge of the truth, from the Gentiles, or Jews or any heresy whatever, if they be Bishops or clerics let them be deposed, the Bishops from the Episcopate, and the clerics from the clergy; but if they be monks or laics: let them be anathematized.”
The Church, through a pope (who wields the supreme authority over the Church from Christ), has the authority to add a true statement to the Creed for the defense of the faith or for further clarification of a point. Hence, there’s no merit to the argument that the Church could not add the words ‘and the Son’ to the Creed for a defense and assertion of the true doctrine. Thus, the Council of Florence under Pope Eugene IV correctly declared:
Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, “Laetentur coeli”, July 6, 1439: “We define in addition that the explanation of those words ‘Filioque’ for the sake of declaring the truth and also because of imminent necessity has been lawfully and reasonably added to the Creed…”
The lawfulness of adding the Filioque to the Creed was acknowledged by representatives from all five Patriarchal sees at the Council of Florence, as well as by the Metropolitan of Russia and a large Greek delegation that included people who at one time had been opposed to the Filioque. After the debates and presentations at Florence, they came to accept the Filioque and the lawfulness of its inclusion in the Creed.
MHFM: This is a must-see video for those interested in the Catholic faith, apologetics, and defending the faith in these times.
Considering Fully Adopting
Been juggling the sedevacante position for a while now, often thought of sedes as authentic Catholics regardless because I see the truth they stand behind and I agree, but now considering fully adopting said position mostly as Brother Dimond lays it out due to his success in debate. The Apocalypse is also very telling and hard to ignore…
Their Allegiance To Satan’s Agenda
MHFM: Their ceremony was essentially a profession of allegiance to the agenda of Satan.
Thank you for this sobering quote...
MHFM: This is the ultimate result of denying the dogma Outside The Church There Is No Salvation. It’s a striking example of the Vatican II Sect’s indifferentism, which is connected to its false ecumenism and the teaching of Vatican II. The outrageous statement by the heretical nun is very similar to what Mother Angelica said. It’s also an example of how people can have traditional externals but it won’t profit them at all if they deny the faith.
Faustina & The Divine Mercy Deception - French and Italian
MHFM: Our video Faustina & The Divine Mercy Deception has been published in French and Italian.
Mother Teresa Celebrated By The Vatican II Counter Church
MHFM: On September 5 the Vatican II Sect celebrated the feast of Mother Teresa. This video exposes her truly astounding apostasy and religious indifferentism. The fact that the Vatican II Sect honors her as a saint (when she clearly was not even Catholic) is more proof that it’s not the Catholic Church.
Excellent video… Thank you MHFM for your consistency in showing us the truth.
These videos became a must watch… To be ignorant on these important matters is something I cannot afford anymore.
Impressively informative video!!!
MHFM: As another sign of the Great Apostasy, NYC’s rejection of Christianity and its takeover by demonic forces, mosques in NYC are now permitted to broadcast the Islamic ‘call to prayer’ on Fridays without a permit. This is a terrible development.
“The Muslim call to prayer will ring out more freely in New York City under guidelines announced Tuesday by… Eric Adams… Under the new rules, Adams said, mosques will not need a special permit to publicly broadcast the Islamic call to prayer, or adhan, on Fridays and at sundown during… Ramadan.” (AP, “Muslim call to prayer can now be broadcast publicly in New York City without a permit”, Aug. 29, 2023)
MHFM: Today is the feast of St. Augustine, whose various battles against heretics and theological writings profoundly influenced the Church. St. Augustine is frequently cited by those who believe in ‘baptism of desire’ because in a few statements he expressed the view that an unbaptized catechumen could be saved. But he also opposed that idea, and his final position (during his anti-Pelagian period) was that there is no such thing as ‘baptism of desire’ and that all the elect must receive the Sacrament of Baptism. Even the liberal Karl Rahner admitted the following:
Karl Rahner: “In fact, even St. Augustine, in his last (anti-pelagian) period, no longer maintained the possibility of a baptism by desire.” (Theological Investigations, Volume II, Man in the Church, translated by Karl H. Kruger, pp. 40, 41, 57)
St. Augustine, Against Julian, Book 5, Chap. 4: “Of the number of the elect and predestined, even those who have led the very worst kind of life are led to repentance through the goodness of God… Not one of them perishes, regardless of his age at death; never be it said that a man predestined to life would be permitted to end his life without the sacrament of the Mediator [Baptism]. Because of these men, our Lord says: ‘This is the will of him who sent me, the Father, that I should lose nothing of what he has given me.’”
We mention that in this video:
MHFM: As we mentioned in a recent video: Pope Leo XIII pointed out that when a government is severed from God [and outrageous sins against nature become normalized], “the law determining what it is right to do and avoid doing is at the mercy of a majority. Now, this is simply a road leading straight to tyranny” (Libertas #12, June 20, 1888). We are seeing this manifest in an alarming way here in America (with the political prosecutions, etc.).
St. John Eudes On EENS
MHFM: Today is the feast of St. John Eudes. He called it an "enormous sin" to deny the necessity of the Catholic faith for salvation – a dogma that's denied by almost all priests and many laypeople today (even though so many of them falsely claim to believe in it). That defined Catholic truth is also completely contradicted by Vatican II in a number of ways. We have a short video and article which cover the statements of St. John Eudes on this matter.
"Dr." Nachman has been involved in many Jewish activities.
- Nov 20, 2003 issue of the New Jersey Jewish News reports her and her husband as the Exec Dinner Committee of One Israel Fund, which focueses on "enabling Jewish life to flourish in all areas... throughout Israel".
- North Shore Hebrew Academy lists her as a medical consultant for in their 2020-2021 family handbook.
- Mar 19, 2020 The Chai Center, a Jewish synagogue in NY, that their "mikvah" (ritual bath) was to be operated under her guidance.
- Her daughter works for Camp Ramah, the "camping arm of Conservative Judaism" which emphasizes "the strengthening of Jewish and Zionist identity through extensive Israel programming”.
Anatolius Of Constantinople Acknowledged Leo’s Authority Over Chalcedon
Canon 28 of the 4th ecumenical council states, "The bishop of New Rome (Constantinople) shall enjoy the same privileges as the bishop of Old Rome, on account of the removal of the Empire. For this reason the [metropolitans] of Pontus, of Asia, and of Thrace, as well as the Barbarian bishops shall be ordained by the bishop of Constantinople." Is this a false council?
MHFM: Chalcedon was a true council. But canon 28 was not approved. Pope St. Leo the Great rejected it at the time. Canon 28 was therefore not an official act of the council.
Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (#15), June 29, 1896: “The 28th Canon of the Council of Chalcedon, by the very fact that it lacks the assent and approval of the Apostolic See, is admitted by all to be worthless.”
In fact, in a letter to Pope St. Leo the Great, the Patriarch of Constantinople at the time (Anatolius) acknowledged that the whole force and confirmation of the acts was reserved to the pope.
Anatolius, Epistle 132 to Pope Leo, April 454: “As for those things which the universal council of Chalcedon recently ordained in favor of the Church of Constantinople, let your holiness be sure that there was no fault in me, who from my youth have always loved peace and quiet, keeping myself in humility. It was the most reverend clergy of the Church of Constantinople who were eager about it, and they were equally supported by the most reverend priests of those parts, who agreed about it. Even so the whole force and confirmation of the acts was reserved for the authority of your blessedness.” (Patrologia Latina 54:1084)
… this video only strengthened my Catholic faith.
Last Inca Emperor
MHFM: Since various Protestants wrongly believed that the formal cause of justification is the alien righteousness of Christ imputed to the person (rather than sanctifying grace truly inhering in the changed person’s soul), they (wrongly) held that all the justified were equally righteous. In connection with that false position, some might conclude that Matthew 20’s reference to all the workers receiving a denarius implies that in Heaven all receive equal rewards or glory.
Matthew 20:9-16- “And when those hired about the eleventh hour came, each of them received a denarius. Now when those hired first came, they thought they would receive more, but each of them also received a denarius. And on receiving it they grumbled at the master of the house, saying, ‘These last worked only one hour, and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the day and the scorching heat.’ But he replied to one of them, ‘Friend, I am doing you no wrong. Did you not agree with me for a denarius? Take what belongs to you and go. I choose to give to this last worker as I give to you. Am I not allowed to do what I choose with what belongs to me? Or do you begrudge my generosity?’ So the last will be first, and the first last.”
However, St. Robert Bellarmine makes a good point by explaining that in Matthew 20 the denarius signifies equality of eternity, not of glory or rewards.
St. Robert Bellarmine, De Iustificatione, Book 3, Chap. 16: “For that denarius signifies equality of eternity, not of glory or excellence.”
MHFM: On many occasions in Church history dissident Eastern schismatics forged or manipulated documents in a dishonest attempt to undermine the truth of the papacy or another Catholic dogma. Here’s an example from the Greek version of the Acts of Chalcedon.
“The compilers [of the Greek Acts of Chalcedon], when assembling the letters that went back and forth between Italy and Constantinople in 449-450, seem to have gone out of their way to diminish Pope Leo’s prominence by emphasizing instead the complaints of western emperor Valentinian III and the Imperial Princesses Galla Placidia and Licinia Eudoxia against Ephesus II, and their demands for a new council. One of Leo’s letters, as edited for the Greek Acts, was even mutilated to remove passages where the pope cited canonical authorities for his claim of jurisdiction to hear appeals from eastern bishops.
The session acts themselves likewise show occasional traces of editing meant to undercut papal claims. The objections voiced by papal legates in the debate over the twenty-eighth canon, given fully in the Latin, are truncated in the Greek… The… twenty-eighth canon, with its bold assertion of Constantinopolitan authority and consequent challenge to Rome, gained additional emphasis by its placement at the conclusion of the council rather than among the other twenty seven canons.” (The Acts Of The Council Of Chalcedon: Volume 1, Introduction by Michael Gaddis, Liverpool University Press, 2005, pp. 80-81)
MHFM: St. Robert Bellarmine correctly taught, based on the words of Scripture, that Judas was damned.
St. Robert Bellarmine, De Iustificatione, Book 3, Chap. 14: “But it is firmly established that Judas was reprobate and damned, both from the passage where he is called ‘the son of perdition’ [John 17:12] and from Matthew 26, where the Lord says concerning Judas: ‘It would be better for that man if he had not been born.’”
However, the heretics Antipope Francis and Antipope Benedict XVI taught that Judas might have been saved.
Francis, Jan. 19, 2018: “None of us can say that a person has not gone to heaven. I will tell you something that might surprise you: we cannot even say it about Judas.”
Benedict XVI, Oct. 18, 2006: “This poses two questions when it comes to explaining what happened [with Judas]. The first consists in asking ourselves how it was possible that Jesus chose this man and trusted him. In fact, though Judas is the group's administrator (cf. John 12:6b; 13:29a), in reality he is also called "thief" (John 12:6a). The mystery of the choice is even greater, as Jesus utters a very severe judgment on him: "Woe to that man by whom the son of man is betrayed!" (Matthew 26:24). This mystery is even more profound if one thinks of his eternal fate, knowing that Judas ‘repented and brought back the 30 pieces of silver to the chief priests and the elders, saying 'I have sinned in betraying innocent blood'’ (Matthew 27:3-4). Though he departed afterward to hang himself (cf. Matthew 27:5), it is not for us to judge his gesture, putting ourselves in God's place, who is infinitely merciful and just.”
MHFM: Today is the feast of the Transfiguration. This video (which we also have in article form) clearly shows that Eastern father St. Maximus the Confessor contradicts the Eastern ‘Orthodox’/Palamite position on the Light of the Transfiguration. Pope St. Leo the Great does as well. It’s another clear example of how the Eastern ‘Orthodox’ don’t have the truth. Rather, they simply have a collection of false claims and misrepresentations.
MHFM: Various Protestants believe that a ‘true believer’ can never fall away from faith and justification. That position is patently opposed to many passages of the New Testament, including statements in 1 Timothy.
1 Timothy 1:19-20- “… holding faith and a good conscience. By rejecting this, some have made shipwreck of their faith, among whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan that they may learn not to blaspheme.”
1 Timothy 4:1- “Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons…”
1 Timothy 6:10- “For the desire of money is the root of all evils; which some coveting have erred from the faith, and have entangled themselves in many sorrows.
Commenting on how such evidence is clearly opposed to the Protestant view, St. Robert Bellarmine stated:
St. Robert Bellarmine, De Iustificatione, Book 3, Chap. 14: “How can this be said [in their view]? They never had true faith, who departed from the faith? And how have they made shipwreck who were never in the ship?”
St. Augustine Against Religious Liberty
MHFM: This is a quote from St. Augustine which expresses the Catholic tradition that secular authorities may repress the religious expressions and activity of heretics. This teaching of the Catholic Church is contrary to the official teaching of the Vatican II Sect.
St. Augustine, Against Julian, Book 3, Chap. 1, AD 422: “Do not invoke the wretched argument used by all heretics whom the laws of Catholic emperors restrain from pernicious license. All of them say, as you yourself have said: ‘The other party suffers from poverty of argument. It refuses to consult the prudent in conducting its case, and invokes terror to extort blind assent from the timid.’ You are new heretics, to be sure, but you, with all the rest, know how to use the old voice of nearly every heretic. You deceive neither yourselves nor anyone else into thinking you have against us as we had against the Donatists, whom we compelled through imperial commands to meet with us in conference.”
Thank you for this brilliant and charitable video. Let’s hope and pray that Marshall wakes up from his spiritual sleep and start embracing and promoting truth instead of heresy.
So true. Most unfortunately. I used to like Taylor Marshall a lot. But this shows brilliantly how fake he is.
“Boundless License Of Vice”
In Humanum Genus, Pope Leo says that men whose soul has been enslaved by passions are used to obeying "clever and crafty men so submissively". Knowing that, the Freemasons deliberately fill the people with "a boundless license of vice". That, to me, describes what the Deep state has been doing with their blackmails. They have debased people's morals so that people would do the most perverted things, and by that, later, get those who become politicians to be blackmailed, "like slaves in the very tightest bonds ... to arm men's right hands for bloodshed after securing impunity for the crime.”
Might explain the unsolved high-profile murders that have happened in America, as well as it involvement in seemingly endless foreign wars.
Thank you Brothers for another excellent refutation of Protestant Answers' Trent Horn.
Theology Debated In The Marketplace
MHFM: This is an interesting quote from St. Gregory of Nyssa concerning the theological debates and controversies in the fourth century. Issues concerning the Trinity and the full divinity of the Son and the Holy Spirit were so hotly contested (and were considered so important) that people would carry on debates and discussions about these matters in the marketplace and elsewhere.
St. Gregory of Nyssa, Oration On The Deity Of The Son And The Holy Spirit (4th Century): “Everywhere, in the public squares, at crossroads, on the streets and lanes, people would stop you and discourse at random about the Trinity. If you asked something of a moneychanger, he would begin discussing the question of the Begotten and the Unbegotten. If you questioned a baker about the price of bread, he would answer [heretically] that the Father is greater and the Son is subordinate to Him. If you went to take a bath, the Anomoean bath attendant would tell you [heretically] that in his opinion the Son simply comes from nothing.”
Deceived By Faustina
I truly believe this video is a sign from God, I was literally like 30 minutes ago planning to ask my dad if he could take me to the basilica… and I wanted to pray a rosary and the divine mercy chaplet, then I saw this and I can’t believe this whole time I was being deceived.
I was fooled by Taylor Marshall's likable demeanor until he kept calling Bergoglio the "pope" even after the idolatry in Rome in October 2019. Then the scales fell off my eyes. I've been waiting for this video. MHFM, you nail it by calling out another fake Catholic. Bless you!
Beware Of Unbelieving Commentators
MHFM: Beware of people who don’t have the pure Catholic faith (and cannot even recognize that Vatican II contains heresy and is filled with false doctrine) trying to understand whether the current situation fulfills prophecies about the end-times and the Antichrist. Frankly, such people don’t have a clue what’s happening. They lack the requisite faith in Catholic teaching, as well as sufficient knowledge of the heresies of the post-Vatican II antipopes, to see the gravity of the current situation and its applicability to end-times prophecy. Thus, if someone hasn’t figured out that Francis, Benedict XVI and John Paul II were all notoriously heretical, yet tries to tell you about the end-times, don’t listen to him. He is deceived.
MHFM: This is a must-see new video. It contains a lot of important new information, and people should watch the ENTIRE VIDEO because there are important points throughout and near the end.
Private Audience To WHO Director
MHFM: Francis’ decision to give special private audiences to some of the most wicked people in the world is another example of what’s covered in our videos on the Apocalypse: that Babylon (the place where St. Peter is located) has now become the habitation of demons and of every unclean spirit (Apoc. 18:2).
Stupid Superstition Surrounding Black Cats
MHFM: The idea that black cats are evil or a sign of the Devil is a stupid superstition that’s sadly held by some people. Like cats of other colors, black cats are natural and created by God.
MHFM: Francis has named 21 new ‘cardinals’ for the Vatican II Sect, including the notorious new ‘head’ of the ‘DDF’, Víctor Manuel Fernández. This will further frustrate those in the V2 Sect, but that's what they are going to get from a Counter Church. By the way, the fake sedevacantist group of Sanborn will consider Francis' act to be valid and Fernández to be a true Catholic cardinal. That’s their position, which we cover and refute here:
Bellarmine On Idleness
St. Robert Bellarmine: “Flee idleness… for no one is more exposed to such temptations than he who has nothing to do.”
Liberal Liar Was Caught
MHFM: This is interesting and revealing. It's outrageous that pathological liars like Miller are in possession of power.
Mexico has returned to paganism
It is sad that Mexico has returned to paganism. Especially with that awful “Saint” death.
John Paul II And All The Heretics At Assisi Prayed With “One Voice”
MHFM: Here Antipope John Paul II officially taught that he and all the heretics at Assisi in 1986 prayed with “one voice to the Lord”. That’s another official endorsement (on his part) of the heresy that it’s lawful to participate in non-Catholic worship. We discuss that heresy in detail in this video: Vatican II Is A New Religion (Visual Proof).
John Paul II, Ut Unum Sint (#76), May 25, 1995: “In 1986, at Assisi, during the World Day of Prayer for Peace, Christians of the various Churches and Ecclesial Communities prayed with one voice to the Lord of history for peace in the world.”
Perfect timing. Needed this one… Thank you.
Sodom and Gomorrah 2.0...
MHFM: This quote from St. Robert Bellarmine is another example of why Jesus told people that cutting off occasions of sin is the key to avoiding sin.
St. Robert Bellarmine, De Gratia Et Libero Arbitrio, Book 4, Chap. 10: “… in every matter the mode of desiring corresponds to the mode of knowing; for desire follows knowledge, nor is it possible that someone desires an unknown thing.”
Another way to put it is: “Out of sight, out of mind.”
MHFM: This is another clear and a powerful example of a pope judging/condemning a false religion and an unbeliever.
Pope Callixtus III (1455): “Ego Calixtus Papa Tertius, promitto & voveo sanctissimae Trinitati, Patri & filio & spiritui sancto, Dei genitrici semper virgini, sanctis Apostolis Petro et Paulo, totique Curiae coelesti, quod etiam ad effusionem sanguinis proprii, si opus fuerit, dabo operam, & adhibebo omnimodam diligentiam, quantum potero, iuxta consilium venerabilium fratrum meorum, pro recuperatione civitatis Constantinopolitanae, quae heu peccatis hominum exigentibus, nostris temporibus occupata & eversa est, per Iesu Christi Crucifixi Salvatoris nostri inimicum, filium Diaboli, Machometum & Turcarum Dominum. Pro liberatione deinde captivorum Christianorum, necnon ad exaltationem fidei Orthodoxae, ad exterminationem Diabolicae sectae reprobi perfidique Machometi, in partibus Orientalibus, ubi maxime lumen fidei occubuit.”
Pope Callixtus III (1455): “I, Pope Calixtus III, promise and vow to the Most Holy Trinity, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, to the Ever-Virgin Mother of God, to Saints Peter and Paul, and to the whole heavenly court: that even to the shedding of my own blood, if it should be necessary, I will give effort and employ every kind of diligence, as far as I shall be able, according to the counsel of my venerable brethren, for the recovery of the city of Constantinople, which (alas) in punishment for the sins of men, in our times has been occupied and overthrown by the enemy of Jesus Christ our Crucified Savior, Mahomet [II], the son of the Devil and leader of the Turks. Next, [I promise to give effort] for the liberation of the captive Christians, and also for the exaltation of the orthodox faith and for the extermination of the diabolical sect of the reprobate and faithless Mahomet [Islam] in the Eastern regions, where especially the light of the faith has gone out.”
MHFM: It’s interesting that Gregory Palamas, who became one of the most important theological writers for the Eastern ‘Orthodox’ sects, was condemned even in schismatic Constantinople from the years 1341 to 1347. The opposition to Palamas’ revolutionary and heretical doctrine even among the Greek schismatic leadership led to his imprisonment for a number of years. However, after the political situation changed and a new ‘patriarch’ was installed Palamas was ‘elevated’ to bishop. We refute Palamas’ heretical doctrine of God here: https://vaticancatholic.com/eastern-orthodoxy/
St. Augustine Contra Calvinism On Free Will
MHFM: Some Calvinists think they have a kind of historical link with St. Augustine. But St. Augustine, of course, was not a Calvinist. Here’s a passage in which St. Augustine clearly affirms free will (contrary to Calvinism).
St. Augustine, Against Julian, Book 1, Chap. 9, AD 422: “For if you say that the root of evil arose from the free will of a good nature created by God (which the Catholic truth teaches), he [i.e. a Manichaean] will very easily overcome you with those words of your own in which you say: ‘The root of evil cannot be located in a gift of God,’ since free will is without doubt a gift of God.”
Excluding From Communion
MHFM: This is just one of many examples in which a real pope excluded grave sinners from Holy Communion (something that the Vatican II antipopes don’t do).
Pope St. Gregory VII, To Bishop Isembert II, Sept. 10: 1074: “But as for those through whom you have performed so great an offense, whether laymen or clerics, we exclude them by apostolic authority from the Body and Blood of Christ and from every sacred ministration, until you yourself come to make satisfaction…”
Clear Presentation On Justification
Excellent presentation. The best, most thorough and clearest I have ever seen. Thank you.
New Video Posted
St. Irenaeus On Heretics Using Ambiguity and Catholic Terms
MHFM: This is another interesting quote from a saint concerning how heretics (in this case the Gnostics) employed ambiguity and Catholic terms when they insinuated and taught their heresies.
St. Irenaeus, Against Heresies, Book III, Chap. 17: “… not only do they hold opinions which are different, but absolutely contrary, and in all points full of blasphemies, by which they destroy those persons who, by reason of the resemblance of the words, imbibe a poison which disagrees with their constitution, just as if one, giving lime mixed with water for milk, should mislead by the similitude of the color; as a man superior to me has said, concerning all that in any way corrupt the things of God and adulterate the truth: ‘Lime is wickedly mixed with the milk of God.’”
His reference to heretics using a “resemblance of words” corresponds to how Francis, as mentioned in the recent video (Francis Got Angry That People Converted To Catholicism), sometimes speaks positively of “evangelism” or “preaching the Gospel” as he condemns the Church’s teaching on evangelism, converting others, convincing people, etc.
It's always Catholicism that is consistently and vehemently attacked by the world, and its the devil who rules the world (John 12:31). The adversary of mankind is making it clear, Catholicism is the way!
Ted Cruz Condemns The Bible
MHFM: He's condemning the law God gave to Israel in the Old Testament as grotesque and an abomination.
MHFM: It’s interesting that certain modernist defenders of the Whore of Babylon (i.e. the Vatican II Sect) are citing the pseudo-Holy Office letter, called Suprema Haec Sacra (dated Aug. 8, 1949), written against Fr. Feeney, in an attempt to justify Francis’ blatantly heretical act of recognizing Coptic ‘Orthodox’ heretics and schismatics as true martyrs and saints.
Their attempt completely fails because 1) nothing can justify Francis’ blatant act of heresy and 2) the letter they are citing was not an act of the Magisterium or even an official common form act of the Holy Office. It was never published in the AAS (i.e. the Acta Apostolicae Sedis) and was therefore technically private. It was authored by a modernist named “Cardinal” Marchetti-Selvaggianni. We cover that here: The Holy Office - Is It Infallible? (Geocentrism & Fr. Feeney).
Suprema Haec Sacra (which is accepted by some heretics who claim to be sedevacantist) was an unofficial and heretical document that reflected the growing rejection of EENS at the time. The modernists’ recourse to it, in order to justify Francis’ blatant denial of the dogma Outside The Church There Is No Salvation, demonstrates again that the rejection of the true position on salvation and baptism was foundational to the Vatican II apostasy.
It's also quite interesting that Pope Eugene IV's bull Cantate Domino (published at the Council of Florence), which so clearly contradicts Francis' act of heresy, was a bull of union with the Copts (i.e. the Coptic delegation)! So, the true Catholic Church under Pope Eugene IV got the Copts to sign a bull declaring that no one, even if he has shed blood in the name of Christ, can be saved unless he's in the Catholic Church and in unity with the Roman Pontiff. But the Vatican II Counter Church does exactly the opposite. It tells the schismatic Coptic 'Orthodox' who reject the Papacy and more that they can be saved and be martyrs outside the Catholic Church, and it even gives some of their members a feast day. It's a striking example of how the end-times Counter Church does the opposite of the true Catholic Church.
