Points to Ponder About
PURPOSE (*): The
purpose of Points to

Faithful back to God (**)
and away from the hypocritical duplicity of some religious
institutions which are destroying the little faith left on earth .

you ever wonder
why... "religious" mankind do
not seem to get the straight
message from God as it appears in the First Reading of
the Mass of Thursday after Ash Wednesday which we now quote:
Consider that I have set before thee this day life and good, and on the
other hand death and evil:
16 That thou mayst love the Lord thy
God, and walk in his ways, and keep his commandments and ceremonies and
judgments, and thou mayst live, and he may multiply thee, and bless
thee in the land, which thou shalt go in to possess.
17 But if thy heart be turned away,
so that thou wilt not hear, and being deceived with error thou adore
strange gods, and serve them: 18 I foretell thee this day that thou
shalt perish, and shalt remain but a short time in the land, to which
thou shalt pass over the Jordan, and shalt go in to possess it.
19 I call heaven and earth to witness
this day, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and
cursing. Choose therefore life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
20 And that thou mayst love the Lord thy God, and obey his voice, and
adhere to him (for he is thy life, and the length of thy days,) that
thou mayst dwell in the land, for which the Lord swore to thy fathers
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that he would give it them. [Deut 30]
How could God possibly make it
any clearer? With the megaphone!
We rest our case!
you ever wonder
why... every other illuminated,
researcher, historian and/or enemy of the Faith ascribe full and/or
brothers and sisters to Jesus, yet, from the Cross He said (in
reference to Mary and John): "Woman,
behold thy son." After that, He said to the disciple: "Behold thy
Mother". And from that hour, the disciple took Her to his own." [John 19:26-27]
Obviously if Jesus had had full or half sisters and brothers, according
their custom, Mary would have stayed with them and not be with John
henceforth - even all the way to Ephesus.

Do you wonder why... when Jesus
Think ye, that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, no; but
52 For there shall be from henceforth five
in one house divided: three against two, and two against three.
53 The father shall be divided against the
son, and the son
against his father, the mother against the daughter, and the daughter
against the mother, the mother in law against her daughter in law, and
the daughter in law against her mother in law.
....yet He did not include "wife
husband and husband against the wife"?
Because He IS perfectly coherent. Did He not also say through
beginning of the creation, God made them male and female.
7 For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother; and shall
cleave to his wife.
8 And they
two shall be in one flesh. Therefore
now they are not two, but one flesh.
9 What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
"Two" turned into "one flesh". If that
union was made under the principles that we have explained in our
document about Matrimony (1),
there will be coherence within the Gospel. It may be
perceived/applied differently by each
individual because each spouse may be at a different point in
their journey Home (2);
however, there will not be a rift, a separation, a fundamental conflict. (3)
As we have explained (4)
The Holy Scriptures may
have been written by men but it was done under Divine inspiration, for
Divine can be perfectly coherent.
(1) The indissolubility of a
(2) The journey Home
(3) This is what Paul meant in
2 Corinthians 6:14-15: Bear not the yoke with unbelievers. For
what participation hath justice
with injustice? Or what fellowship hath light with darkness? And what
concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath the faithful with
Literalism Part 1
and Part 2

Do you wonder.... what St. Paul meant when he said: To deliver such a one to satan for the
destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of
our Lord Jesus Christ
[1 Cor 5:5] and why he did it?
We will explain it to you with an example.
There have been individuals for whom, through the Grace of God, we have
secured great material and spiritual benefits. Unfortunately, the
material benefits have led them astray making a mockery of the
faith they once claimed to embrace. If we continue to look the
other way - as we have done for too long - and do not act, we will
become responsible for their misuse of the many graces secured for them.
Thus, with the same intent St. Paul made the above pronouncement, and
fully deferring to the Will of God, we hereby - before the world - make
a similar pronouncement upon those who, using the Divine Graces secured
for them, have followed paths for which said Graces were not intended thus
mocking God, the ultimate source of such Graces.

Do you wonder...., considering our relentless criticism of the Roman
Catholic Church Administration, how we would restructure the Roman
Catholic Church Administration?
It would be essentially as it is now. The real problem is made up of
very worldly Administrators who are more interested in serving Mammon
As far as its structure, we would only: (a)
Abrogate the existing Personal
Prelature which is the manifestation of the expected schism, but in
disguise; and (b)
qualified women to become non ordained members of the College of

Do you still wonder.... where the political philosophy that the Bush
Administration used to establish the Imperial/Dictatorial Presidency of
the las t eight years?
Wonder no more! Its author is Elizabeth Cheney (1)

Do you still wonder... why so many people
make fun at Catholicism?
Besides the fact that many - erroneously and incoherent with the basic
tenets of the Faith - practice text-book idolatry (1), we also have to contend
with the never ending Circus of the Vatican.
Now we have Benedict XVI revoking the excommunication of the SSPX which
was ruled by Pope John Paul II. What happened to their claim of 100 %
Lifting an excommunication of a penitent because the penitent abjured
his/her errors and/or admitted sins, is one thing, but lifting a ruling
of excommunication without
the entity/individual that was excommunicated changing their stance
"flies into the face" of their already ridiculous claim of 100 %
Infallibility claim. The 100 % claim is excepted, of course, if the one
claiming to occupy the Chair of Peter writes a book; in which case,
those erstwhile infallible pronouncements now become mere opinions.
Of course - spiritually speaking - excommunication is a moot point; no
one can separate a willing soul from Jesus Christ. Yes, one can be
separated from an institution - religious or business or social - but
the power to block the salvation of a soul (3) is not on anyone's hand
but the soul itself.
It is important that the Faithful is well informed about his/her Faith
so that, when attacked or made fun of, one can gently and intelligently explain to the
critic how it really is.
