The first day of the historic visit by Pope Francis to the Arabian Peninsula ended with the signing of a “Human Fraternity Document” by the leader of the Roman Catholic Church and one of the highest authorities in Islam, Sheikh Ahmed Al-Tayeb, grand imam of Al-Azhar Mosque.

Back in September we brought you the story of how Pope Francis abandoned the millions of Catholics in China who begged him for help and protection from the brutal persecution of them at the hands of the Chinese government. The Roman pope simply ‘made a deal‘ with the Communist leaders and allowed his own flock to be destroyed. Why would he do this? Because Pope Francis is a type of the coming Antichrist, that’s why.

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.” Matthew 7:15-17 (KJV)

Now the pope seeks to build on that betrayal by signing a ‘pact of fraternity” with a radical Muslim leader who preaches that any Muslim who ‘converts to Christianity‘ should be put to death. I cannot find a better illustration in our day of how the Antichrist will operate than Pope Francis who speaks like a lamb but is actually a ravening wolf.

Pope Francis and Al-Azhar’s Sheikh Ahmed Al-Tayeb sign declaration of fraternity in Abu Dhabi

FROM ARAB NEWS: The declaration of fraternity — which pledges the religious leaders to work together in perpetuity and to reject violence and radicalism — was also signed by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, prime minister of the UAE, which hosted the ceremony in its capital Abu Dhabi.

The pope told an audience: “Fraternity is established here at the roots of our common humanity, as a vocation contained in God’s plan of creation.” His address centered on the themes of fraternity, education, justice, and human development built on inclusion.

“There is no alternative,” he added. “We either build the future together, or there will not be a future. Religions, in particular, cannot renounce the urgent task of building bridges between peoples and cultures.” The speech was delivered in Italian translated into Arabic for most in the audience.

Al-Tayeb said: “The document is historic, and it calls for policymakers to stop bloodshed and conflict. Muslims must protect their Christian brothers. I will work with my brother and friend Pope Francis to protect all communities.”

The grand imam added: “It is encouraging to see the UAE investing in human resources, and especially the youth. Farsightedness and wisdom transformed the UAE into a bright country that hosts such a meeting.”

He said: “Muslims in Western countries must follow and respect the rules and regulations of the countries in which they reside.”

The Western media “exploited” the 9/11 attacks in the US “to show Islam negatively as a bloodthirsty religion, and to show Muslims as savage barbarians who pose a danger and threat to modern societies,” he added, quoting numerous Qur’anic verses about the value of life. READ MORE

Tens of thousands pack stadium for first papal mass on Arabian Peninsula

Tens of thousands of Catholics and several thousand Muslims attended an unprecedented public celebration of Mass on Tuesday by Pope Francis, the first pontiff in history to visit the Arabian Peninsula.

More than 120,000 worshippers packed Zayed Sports City stadium and its surroundings in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, to see the pope, who is in the Gulf country to promote interfaith dialogue.

The UAE hosts about half of the two million expatriate Catholics living on the peninsula, home to the birthplace of Islam in neighboring Saudi Arabia. The community includes large numbers of people from the Philippines and India. Francis entered the stadium in a white open top jeep to roars from the crowd. People wearing white baseball caps emblazoned with the visit logo packed the stadium stands and snapped pictures on their smartphones. READ MORE

Sunni Islam’s highest authority, Ahmed el-Tayeb, explains why Islam is incompatible with the West

The leading voice for over a billion Muslims states that apostasy is a crime punishable by death and that human rights and sexual liberty are diseases. This is the person that Pope Francis just signed a “pact of brotherhood” with, let that sink in for a moment.

The LGBTQIA+ Christian Church Now Has Their Own Queer Hymnal Called ‘Songs For The Holy Other’ That Makes God A Sinner And A Liar

Published

A queer affirming hymnal called ‘Songs For The Holy Other’ is helping LGBTQIA+ Christians keep the faith, but what faith exactly is that?

I want you to imagine for a moment a Christian church that, say, served alcohol to their members instead of coffee, what be wrong with that? It would be in violation of scriptures like Proverbs 20:1 (KJB) that tells you drinking alcohol will deceive you and should be avoided at all costs. Imagine a Christian church that promoted violence, it would be in violation of scripture like Romans 12:18 (KJB) that tells us to live peaceably with all men, and allow God to have vengeance, not you. Now imagine a Christian church that took the music to beloved hymns and wrote new lyrics to promote the idea that God affirms the queer lifestyle in spite of the fact of scripture like Romans 1:21-32 (KJB) that absolutely condemns it. You would make God a sinner and a liar like you. The new hymnal ‘Songs For The Holy Other’ does exactly that.

“Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.” Romans 7:13 (KJB)

When I read the Bible, I clearly see that God has provided salvation through His Son Jesus Christ’s death, burial and resurrection for any and all people who desire to be saved. But part of what salvation is is acknowledging that you are a sinner who is against God by your very existence, and that you need to become born again as Jesus commands. There is no such thing as an LGBTQIA+ Christian Church because the Bible clearly declares that lifestyle to be 100% in opposition to God. Just read Genesis 19:1-17 (KJB) or Jude 1:7 (KJB) to see how God feels about the lifestyle of Sodom and Gomorrah. There is no ‘holy other’, God alone is holy, and if you want God you must be born again and start battling your sin, not embracing it.

‘Songs for the Holy Other’ was compiled by a committee of Hymn Society members representing seven denominations and a wide range of sexualities and gender identities.

FROM CNN: Jeannette Lindholm knows the feeling. The professor and hymn writer based in Salem, Massachusetts was raised in an evangelical Christian church, surrounded by music. “Hymns have a powerful influence on theology and how people understand and experience the divine,” she says. Except, her early years of faith were marred by a strong dissonance. To her hometown congregation, and even to her family, Lindholm’s sexuality was a sin in need of healing, an aberration to be tolerated at best. But Lindholm didn’t want to be tolerated. She wanted to be loved.

“I profoundly believe in the healing power of love and grace,” she said. “I didn’t want to abandon my faith.”

Instead, she dedicated her life to studying music, feminism and theology. She absorbed other religious perspectives. She fell in love with her now-wife, Chris, and found a faith community that believed what she had all along: That divine love has no qualifications, and to be different is a blessing. Two of Lindholm’s works are featured in “Songs for the Holy Other,” a collection of LGBTQ-affirming hymns compiled by the Hymn Society, a 100-year-old institution for religious music. First published in 2019, the collection has proven to be a unique resource for churches who fully celebrate queer believers.

“The title, Songs for the Holy Other, is a self-conscious claiming of otherness as holy and beloved of God,” the project’s mission statement reads.

LGBTQ Christians, faith leaders and allies know how important this perception is — to see otherness celebrated in this powerful form of song, and to be considered necessary in a community instead of just tolerated.

“Songs for the Holy Other” was compiled by a committee of Hymn Society members representing seven denominations and a wide range of sexualities and gender identities. Through submission calls and good old word-of-mouth, the committee chose 45 texts from more than 160 songs and hymns, paying specific attention to works that weren’t already widely available.

The result is an alchemy of tradition. Historically, hymns have been written to fit with different, familiar tunes to make them easier and more enjoyable for people to sing. That practice continues here, with some recently written works like “A Hymn for Self-Acceptance,” “God of Queer, Transgressive Spaces” and “Impartial, Compassionate God” being paired with melodies familiar to many churchgoers.

SOULBOUND? The Longer That It Matures And Grows, The More That Cryptocurrency Seems To Have In Common With The Coming Mark Of The Beast

Soulbound tokens, cryptocurrency and a social credit system sure sounds to me like the whole world is gearing up to receive the Mark of the Beast

Last time I checked, a ‘crypt’ was where they put the dead bodies, so a ‘cryptocurrency’ would be money that is connected with dead things. Cryptocurrency has become huge over the pandemic, amazing coincidence I know, and now the founder of one of the world’s largest tech platforms for crypto is now rolling out something called a ‘soulbound token’ that will attached with the death money. Are you still waiting for the end times to start? Better hurry, you are 801 days behind the curve at the moment.

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:17 (KJB)

I did not use Habakkuk 1:5 for my theme verse in this article, but I sure could have when you consider how this is all playing out right in front of your face, and amazingly, almost no one seems to notice. Prolly because they are just a tad distracted with the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial, or the recent school shooting, or the latest artificial race riot, or mix and match a list yourself from a seemingly endless lineup of distractions up to and including COVID, smallpox and monkeypox. In the meantime, you can jump in the Metaverse and put your death money into your Soul so you can store your soulbound tokens as you await Antichrist who will give you the Mark of the Beast so you can keep buying and selling.

Your whole identity could soon live in ‘Soulbound tokens’ on web3, Ethereum’s co-founder says

FROM FORTUNE: Early this month, Vitalik Buterin co-authored a paper outlining his vision for a “decentralized society” (DeSoc) where individuals accrue a permanent record of merits and attributes that are stored in private blockchain wallets as non-tradable crypto assets.

The writers dub those achievement badges ‘soulbound tokens’ also known as SBTs

“Imagine a world where most participants have Souls [digital wallets] that store SBTs corresponding to a series of affiliations, memberships, and credentials,” the authors write, suggesting that their idea for SBTs could resemble something of a Web3-based CV.

“For example, a person might have a Soul that stores SBTs representing educational credentials, employment history, or hashes of their writings or works of art,” the paper says.

Unlike a non-fungible token (NFT), which is a collectible digital asset that can be traded or sold, SBTs are designed to be untradable—a little more like a Boy Scout badge than a baseball card. According to the paper, an individual would gain SBTs from other Souls within the decentralized society. A university, for example, might issue SBTs to its alumni to verify that they have graduated from that school.

To be clear, that also means SBTs aren’t really going to replace NFTs. The two digital assets, theoretically, serve different functions. While an NFT is designed to be tradable and act as a financial asset, an SBT, Buterin suggests, is supposed to serve as a proof of character, rather than a proof of wealth.

But as the authors attest, there are major dangers to the proposal.

For starters, the whole thing sounds similar to China’s idea of building a social credit system that would supposedly punish citizens for demonstrating bad ideological behavior. Since SBTs are issued to individuals without their consent, the system could be used to brand “scarlet letters” on people, making the technology an ideal tool for authoritarian states.

A society built on SBTs could even reinforce discrimination indirectly. A database of SBTs could provide a marker to “automate red-lining of disfavored social groups or even target them for cyber or physical attack, enforce restrictive migration policies, or make predatory loans,” the authors write. For that reason, Buterin and his coauthors consider individuals might need the option to “burn” or hide their SBTs from the public, choosing to reveal them only when necessary. READ MORE

On Day 800 Of 15 Days To Flatten The Curve We Have The Worst School Shooting Since Sandy Hook, With Much More On Deck And Ready To Go

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

18-year-old gunman Salvador Ramos killed 19 children and two teachers at a Texas elementary school barricaded himself inside a classroom, “shooting anyone that was in his way,” an official said Wednesday, describing the latest in a gruesome, years-long series of mass killings at churches, schools and stores.

It is mind boggling to me, as the overtly obvious spirit of Antichrist continues to sweep across America, manifesting itself yesterday in a horrific school shooting in Texas where 19 students and two teachers were killed, that the debate is about gun control. Taking away guns will no more stop mass shootings than Prohibition stopped the consumption of alcohol, or that the “Just Say No!” campaign prevented drug use. What we have here is a spiritual problem, and in a nation that is spiritually dead, that’s a pretty big problem. We told you 800 days ago this wasn’t going to stop, believe us now?

“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” Psalm 9:17 (KJB)

So here we are, on Day 800 of 15 Days To Flatten the Curve, watching the Abraham Accords moving Israel ever closer to the Two State Solution, headlines screaming ‘Monkeypox!’, gas prices the highest in American history, baby formula shortages, a crashing stock market with an economy being eaten alive by inflation, a president that cannot string even simple sentences together, does anyone even remember what a conspiracy theory is any more? Pray for the families in Uvalde, Texas, that their souls would be comforted by the Lord, and that many Christians would be able to minister to them there. But pray for yourselves, also, as the spirit of Antichrist continues to prepare the way for his soon arrival, that we who are saved will be able to get something done for Jesus Christ in the midst of this end times chaos.

Details emerge on Texas school shooter Salvador Ramos’ behavior before massacre

FROM THE NY POST: The gunman who slaughtered 19 kids and two teachers at a Texas elementary school reportedly exhibited increasingly bizarre behavior leading up to the rampage – including cutting up his face with knives just “for fun,” friends said.

Gunman Salvador Ramos’ friend Santos Valdez Jr., 18, said that the two had been close, playing video games and basketball regularly, until his friend’s behavior began to “deteriorate,” The Washington Post reported.

At one point, he recounted, Ramos showed up at a park with scratch marks across his face and said he had been attacked by a cat.

“Then he told me the truth, that he’d cut up his face with knives over and over and over,” Valdez told the newspaper “I was like, ‘You’re crazy, bro, why would you do that?’” he said. Ramos told him it was just “for fun,” Valdez said.

The friend said he last interacted with Ramos just two hours before the attack at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde.

The two messaged on Instagram, where Valdez reshared a meme that said, “WHY TF IS SCHOOL STILL OPEN,” according to the Washington Post, which reported that Ramos replied, “Facts” and “That’s good tho right?” READ MORE
