Father Aidan Nichols Signs Open Letter Charging Pope Francis With Heresy

The Dominican is one of 19 academics and clergy calling on the world’s bishops to admonish the Pope and publicly reject heresy or face losing the papacy.

The well-known and respected Dominican theologian Father Aidan Nichols has put his name to an historic open letter to bishops claiming Pope Francis is guilty of heresy and calling on them to formally correct him.

The letter, released on April 30, the feast day in the traditional calendar of St. Catherine of Siena — the 14th century saint famous for her criticism of Pope Gregory XI — states that Francis has on occasions “knowingly and persistently” denied what he knows is divinely revealed Church teaching.

Such words and actions, the signatories continue, “amount to a comprehensive rejection of Catholic teaching on marriage and sexual activity, on the moral law, and on grace and the forgiveness of sins.”

They add that they have taken this measure “as a last resort to respond to the accumulating harm caused by Pope Francis’s words and actions over several years, which have given rise to one of the worst crises in the history of the Catholic Church.”

The signatories call on bishops to investigate the claims they put forth, and then correct Pope Francis by calling on him “to reject these heresies.”

If he should “persistently refuse,” they call on the bishops to declare that Francis has “freely deprived himself of the papacy.”

“A heretical papacy may not be tolerated or dissimulated to avoid a worse evil,” the authors write. “It strikes at the basic good of the Church and must be corrected.”

They also link his purported rejection of some Church teachings with his favour shown to bishops and cardinals found guilty of abuse or covering up for abuse and corruption, such as Cardinals Theodore McCarrick, Godfried Danneels, Donald Wuerl and Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga.

They explain that the open letter marks the “third stage” of a process that began in the summer of 2016 when a group of Catholic clergy and scholars wrote a private letter to cardinals and Eastern patriarchs pointing out heresies that they said were in the Pope’s post-synodal apostolic exhortation on the family, Amoris Laetitia.

Japanese Researcher Uses Controversial Experiments to Prove Our Thoughts and Intentions Can Alter the Physical World

Self-help gurus have been telling us about the power of positive thinking for years. Now, the results of an experiment might just prove that they were right all along. Dr. Masaru Emoto, a researcher and alternative healer from Japan, has researched the effects of positive and negative thoughts on materials such as water and cooked rice. The results are pretty amazing.

Dr. Emoto shot to international fame in 2004, when he was featured in the documentary film What the Bleep Do We Know. In that film, he demonstrated through experiments that human thoughts and intentions could cause a great deal of change to the molecular structure of water. His discovery was path breaking, given the fact that human bodies are made of almost 70 percent water.

Enter The Machine of DNA in Real Time & Be Still and Know that God is! VDO

The Ipad 2 Is smart but will any invention of man ever match God’s tiny wonderful Nano Machines in the cell?” says Chris Parker. This is truly amazing proof that our bodies are basically very intricately designed very high-tech, microscopically small, nano machinery! And anyone who cannot see that, is …well …uh.. needs glasses!  🙂 But I’m not too sure if glasses would do the job, when one has no eyes to see!

If I would state that Windows 7 or even XP created itself, or came together by chance, you would call me an idiot. But here we are supposed to believe that this millions times more complicated software, plus its 3D hardware replication modules, that we are just now beginning to create, just came together by chance and by so-called “natural selection” and billions of years of time? Sorry, I do believe in miracles, but that one is too great a miracle to believe for me. Continue reading “Enter The Machine of DNA in Real Time & Be Still and Know that God is! VDO”

Scientists Validate Near Death Experiences

PP intro: So it is not “dopamine” or some other chemical process in the mind after clinical death, but here is proof that there is a spirit world, and when in an OBE (Out of Body Experience) we can still see, hear and experience. How can dopamine make you see what’s on top of a cupboard in the operating theatre as one patient saw an item there the surgeons didn’t know about? Because he floated right under the ceiling! So what does that mean? That when we die it’s not over yet! Sorry, if that’s what some were looking for.

When a car plowed into the vehicle in which she was riding, Leslie’s chest was crushed, eight bones were broken, and her heart stopped beating for three minutes. Before she was revived, she says she glimpsed the afterlife.

“My next experience was really lying on the ground outside of the car, and it was actually an out-of-body experience that I had,” says Leslie. “I was actually floating above my body, and I looked down, and I saw all these men working on this poor girl who was down below, about eight feet below me, and she was struggling.” Continue reading “Scientists Validate Near Death Experiences”

Fewer Americans Now Pray [Reason for American Troubles?]

An SDSU researcher found that declines in religious practice have now spread to personal beliefs and private activities. The percentage of Americans who prayed or believed in God reached an all-time low in 2014, according to new research led by San Diego State University psychology professor Jean M. Twenge.

A research team that included Ryne Sherman from Florida Atlantic University and Julie J. Exline and Joshua B. Grubbs from Case Western Reserve University analyzed data from 58,893 respondents to the General Social Survey, a nationally representative survey of U.S. adults administered between 1972 and 2014. Five times as many Americans in 2014 reported that they never prayed as did Americans in the early 1980s, and nearly twice as many said they did not believe in God.
