The Two Popes & Pietro, The Roman Curia Boss:: By Cynthia Nuara

Pietro (Peter, in English) Parolin is the head of the Roman Curia in the Vatican as its secretary of state. He has been called “papabile, a candidate to succeed Francis as pope.” An April 2019 article on the Catholic website, Crux, stated that Pietro Parolin has become “more powerful than you can possibly imagine.” And the new constitution for reforming and governing the Roman Curia would make this obvious. The Crux article ends with “…within the Roman Curia, everyone will now know who’s boss: The Cardinal Secretary of State.”

I will be using Catholic websites in this writing to make the point that there are many Catholics dissatisfied with this pope.

What is this New Catholic Constitution About?

Summary from the Catholic News Agency (CNA) website: Analysis: New Vatican constitution to centralize power in state secretariat:

A long-serving curial official said, “…This is just the total centralization of power in the office of the Secretary of State. Nothing can be done without the pope’s approval, and nothing gets to the pope except through [Cardinal Parolin] – it’s the creation of a vice-regency.”

An archbishop, currently serving in a senior curial role, said, “It is an essentially Soviet model. Lots of meetings, lots of discussion, but in the end the Secretary [of State] decides what will happen.”

Several curial staffers from different departments told CNA that their congregations had returned “pages of suggested revisions,” and expressed deep concerns about the document’s proposed centralization of curial operations…. – source

Summary from Crux: New Vatican doc displays simplified, decentralized curia:

In its new mega-department for evangelization, the feminine genius, it says, must be promoted in the church… as well as for the faithful who, in certain cultures, live in polygamous relationships.

Publication of the document was expected in June, but due to the vast response to the text of over 200 pages, publication is now tentatively set for September. – source

The Vatican’s former Prefect of the Congregation for Doctrine, Cardinal Gerhard Müller, has strongly criticized it. He said “the teaching of the Faith is being mentioned as merely one random task of the pope among many others, and most importantly, now to be subordinate to his secular duties.” The Cardinal points out in this new constitution a “wrong and deviant use of fundamental notions of Catholic theology…” He warns against a “secularization of the concept of the Church,” as if she is “to be run like an international company” and as if “it is about a balance of power” between a mother company and subsidiaries.

Fr. Thomas Weinandy, a member of the International Theological Commission who was removed as an adviser to the US Conference of Catholic bishops in 2017 after his criticisms of Pope Francis, said there’s “no problem with making Evangelization as the primary pastoral work of the Church,” but not if it means not telling others of the “Mysteries of the Faith.” Without doctrine and moral teaching, “there is no evangelization,” he continued. –  source

Those “mysteries of the faith” of the Catholic church are indeed mysteries; for you’ll find lots of doctrines of man in that system, but not many of its beliefs in the Bible. More on that shortly.

Secularizing the Catholic Faith

It sounds like this new constitution, besides giving Peter Parolin power over all the workings of the Catholic church, will increase the Vatican’s focus on trying to join different belief systems to the “Mother Church” as it calls itself.

The Vatican deal with China in September 2018 allows the Communist government to recommend bishops of the Catholic church. Why agree to such a blatant secular compromise?

The agreement states that China will recommend bishops before they’re appointed by the pope, and stipulates that the pope can veto bishops that China recommends, within limits. Francis, as part of the deal, lifted the excommunication of seven bishops who had been appointed by China without papal approval. Also, under the deal, two Vatican-aligned Chinese bishops recognized by the pope have been asked to resign in favor of state-sanctioned prelates. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that the Chinese government is only going to select bishops who are loyal to the Communist Party. Meanwhile, the persecution of Chinese Catholics has continued, and of Protestants.

From America Magazine: Cardinal Parolin defends Vatican-China agreement amid criticism:

At the symposium, “Stand Together to Defend International Religious Freedom,” Parolin defended the Vatican-China agreement, saying, “We signed this agreement to help advance religious freedom, to find normalization for the Catholic community there, and then for all other religions to have space and a role to play…” – source

Francis, Parolin and previous popes have shown they’re Marxist, Socialist, or Communist themselves and/or have bowed to countries with those systems, secularizing in order to keep seminaries open and “fatten up the Catholic church.” You can read about this on the Catholic website Tradition in Action.

Catechism #841 states that Muslims worship the same God as the Catholic church; therefore, both Francis and Parolin call them brothers and sisters. But the Muslim god is not the God of the Bible. And then there are the Vatican prayers alongside Muslims, Buddhists, and Hindus, and reverence for their precepts and teachings, claiming they “reflect a ray of Truth which enlightens all men.”

At the Second Vatican Council in 1965, the Catholic church declared its attitude to other religions in a document called Nostra Aetate (which means ‘in our time’). Here is an excerpt:

“In her tasks of promoting unity and love among men, indeed among nations, [the Church] considers above all what people have in common and what draws them to fellowship. (n.1) Also, The Catholic Church rejects nothing that is true and holy in these religions. She regards with sincere reverence those ways of conduct and of life, those precepts and teachings which, though differing in many aspects from the ones she holds and sets forth, nonetheless often reflect a ray of that Truth which enlightens all men. (n.2).”

All this is building towards the one-world religion. No false religion will have a role to play in salvation. Christ is the only way, the truth and the life. No one comes to our Father in heaven except through Him (John 14:6).

The Bible, as we know, tells us in Revelation 17 about “Mystery Babylon, the Mother of Harlots.” (Babylon refers to the root of all false religion.) The woman dressed in purple and scarlet who sits on seven hills is drunk with the blood of the saints (martyrs for Jesus who refuse to bow to false doctrine). This Mother church will be aligned with the Antichrist in the Tribulation until he has finished using her to gain power with his ten-nation confederacy; then he will have her destroyed.

Two Popes at the End of Days?

Speaking of that destruction, Francis’ namesake prophesied centuries ago about the time of the end when two popes are alive, one having stolen the throne from the other – a time when the church of Rome will be destroyed.

We’re not to give extra-biblical prophecy the same credence as the God-inspired Bible. But this prophecy and another that applies here, which will also be discussed, only bear mentioning since they appear as though they’re coming to pass…but only in part! Satan knows Bible prophecy too. What better way to keep people deceived by mixing truth with lies?!

The first prophecy I’m referring to is the one by Francis of Assisi. Some claim this prophecy was made up by dissenting members of the 13th century Franciscan order and attributed to Francis of Assisi. No matter, for it doesn’t deflect from what we see happening today. Keep this in mind, though: when revealing this prophecy, Francis of Assisi still held to the false belief in what he called the true pope and the true church, including Mary worship.

Not long before he died in 1226, Francis of Assisi gathered the members of his order and warned them of great tribulations that would befall the Catholic church in the end of days just before Christ’s return. Here is an excerpt:

“The devils will have unusual power; the immaculate purity of our Order, and of others, will be so much obscured that there will be very few Christians who will obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with loyal hearts and perfect charity. At the time of this tribulation, a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavour to draw many into error and death. [Two popes alive at the end of days.]

“Then scandals will be multiplied, our Order will be divided, and many others will be entirely destroyed, because they will consent to error instead of opposing it. There will be such diversity of opinions and schisms among the people, the religious and the clergy, that, except those days were shortened, according to the words of the Gospel, even the elect would be led into error, were they not specially guided, amid such great confusion, by the immense mercy of God…

“Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a destroyer.” – from Works of the Seraphic Father St. Francis Of Assisi [London: R. Washbourne, 1882], pp. 248-250.

You can read the entire prophecy here, along with the article on the Catholic website that discusses the two popes in the prophecy and speaks against this pope.

Is Francis a Valid Pope?

Interestingly, rumor has it that the papal throne was usurped from Benedict with help from elitists including Obama and others that wanted the Marxist Bergoglio (Francis) to be pope, who would be in line with their leftist values.

From Gloria.TV: Wikileaks: Clinton, Obama, Soros, Overthrew Pope Benedict in Vatican Coup:

George Soros, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton orchestrated a coup in the Vatican to overthrow the conservative Pope Benedict and replace him with radical leftist Pope Francis, according to a group of Catholic leaders citing evidence from various sources, including WikiLeaks emails. – source

This would make Francis not canonically elected. The canon law of the Catholic church says a pope’s resignation is valid only if he makes the decision in full freedom and without pressure from others.

Supernatural Signs in the Conclave?

I still remember the words of Cardinal Schönborn in speaking about how Francis unexpectedly became pope.

From The Telegraph: Pope Francis elected after supernatural ‘signs’ in the Conclave, says Cardinal:

Schönborn, Archbishop of Vienna, said the surprise election of Pope Francis came about because of a series of supernatural “signs” in the conclave, including one which he could not speak about. He said he felt two strong signs that Bergoglio (Francis) was “the chosen one.” Cardinal Schönborn went on to say that he’s sure many cardinals “received similar signs during the Conclave.” He said that without such signs, “It wouldn’t have been possible to have this election so soon and so rapidly… It is as if he would say to the world ‘come home, I wait for you.’” – source

The Schism in the Catholic Church Today

Even cardinals are calling for Francis to step down. Is he grooming his cohort in case he steps down OR just wants to focus on other things and allow Parolin to lead the sheep? Or something else. Did Francis usurp the throne from Benedict? Will Pietro, the Roman Curia boss, usurp the throne from Francis? Oh well, let’s move on.

A March 2019 article by Julia Meloni on the Catholic website OnePeterFive, provided some interesting insight. Here is a summary of that article titled,

Cardinal Parolin: The Next Pope?

Last year, Archbishop Viganò alleged that Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Francis’s handpicked secretary of state, was complicit with him in covering up the allegations of decades of sexual abuse of minors, seminarians and young priests by Cardinal McCarrick. Despite this, Antonio Socci, a leading conservative Vatican-watcher, says meetings of cardinals about a possible conclave have been taking place, with Parolin as the clear frontrunner.

A year ago, Parolin was named as likely successor to Francis in reports about a “plot against the pope.”

Socci says cardinals once loyal to Francis are so concerned about a schism that they’re planning to appeal to him to step down. Their favored candidate for replacement is understood to be Cardinal Pietro Parolin.

Why Parolin?  According to Marco Tosatti, Parolin is a progressive diplomat with ties to what is referred to as the Vatican’s St. Gallen mafia, which wields a lot of power. Other Vatican-watchers call him a clear “reformer” — a “pastor open to dialogue,” in line with Francis’s “winds of change.”

Parolin is said to be a revolutionary without the wild liability of Francis. To stay papabile, he’s been distancing himself from some of the questionable aspects of Francis’s reign. He’s been likened to a fireman, carefully controlling the blazes of this pontificate with his diplomatic prowess.

Parolin supposedly was shipped off to Venezuela after a falling out with Cardinal Bertone, Benedict’s secretary of state. Francis, who spoke positively about Parolin before becoming pope, soon replaced Bertone with Parolin — who began loyally implementing Francis’s will. The pope, in turn, lavished Parolin with power. Francis indulges him, and power has drained from other Vatican departments toward this secretary of state.

It was Parolin who moved to suspend an external audit of the Vatican’s finances.

Cardinal Zen says it’s Parolin who pushed Francis towards the deal with Communist China to allow that government to recommend Catholic bishops, which critics say betrays Chinese Catholics. He calls for Parolin’s resignation over this betrayal. He says Parolin “got rid” of him, and calls Parolin “arrogant and despotic, interested more in diplomatic (worldly) success than in the triumph of the Faith.” In Wikipedia’s article on Parolin, a quote from Cardinal Zen said Parolin “is dangerous.”

Parolin seems alarmingly friendly with cultural Marxists and other worldly elites. In 2018, he was the first Vatican official to ever attend the secretive Bilderberg Meeting, the summit of globalists with an agenda of open borders and a one-world government. Parolin also joined Francis in promoting the U.N.’s menacing globalist agenda. Although Parolin says the agenda must respect life in “all its stages,” pro-life leaders warn that the Vatican’s collaboration with the UN will extend abortion, smuggled into the agenda via coded language on “reproductive health.”

In 2017, Parolin further cemented his revolutionary credentials, asserting that Vatican II initiated an “irreversible” process. He quoted a theologian who boasted: “Absolutely nothing will be as it was before!” Parolin praised the new “seeds” of “synodality” — a term that, under Francis, has become synonymous with permanent revolution.

Parolin is the only whispered-about candidate for pope with any real chance of being elected; he is the smooth revolutionary, the master collaborator with worldly powers.

“I don’t think he has faith. He is just a good diplomat in a very secular, mundane meaning,” Cardinal Zen says of Parolin. – source

Another interesting article from the Catholic website Lifesite News, speaks of Francis’ and Parolin’s promotion of Bishop Robert McElroy in San Diego. “Although McElroy says no clerical “gay subculture” exists in his diocese, he is pro-homosexual, having defended a diocesan employee in a same-sex “marriage,” told priests to embrace “LGBT families,” and has been accused, along with Francis and Parolin, in knowing about ex-Cardinal McCarrick’s serial sexual abuse of seminarians and ignoring the matter.”

Peter, the Roman

Now to the one you may be wondering about since reading the title of this article. I’m sure many of you have heard about Malachy’s prophecy of the popes. He gave the prophecy in Latin, and the name he gave of the last leader of the Catholic church was Petrus Romanus, which translates Peter (Pietro, in Italian) the Roman.

There is also what may contain truth in Malachy’s prophecy, but deception as well. Satan knows about the Mother of Harlots church in Rome described in Revelation, yet this prophecy appears to draw one in with its uncanny accuracy in the descriptions of the popes, including the last pope or one who leads the Catholic church in the Tribulation. There is no mention of the false religious system that it has been and will continue to be.

Terry James said in his book review of Petrus Romanus by Tom Horn and Chris Putnam, “Neither Tom Horn nor Cris Putnam–nor I, as your reviewer of this book—claim that St. Malachy was a God-inspired prophet in the sense of an Old Testament or New Testament prophet. He was not. However, I will tell you without reservation that the little-known and sometimes previously undiscovered facts these researchers have uncovered and constructed into an enthralling picture of the one who will likely be the last pontiff are absolutely spellbinding.”

Hal Lindsey reported on Malachy’s prophecy before Francis became pope. He said, “I’m not saying that this man’s prophecy rises to the same level of detail and accuracy as those in the Bible. However, it does contain some remarkable predictions that seem to have been fulfilled across the centuries and may bear relevance for today.” Hal mentioned that some claim it’s a forgery, but he pointed out that – if it were made up by an anti-Catholic Protestant, how does one explain away the fact that it has been kept under guard in the Vatican archives since it was discovered in 1590? [Some claim the author was Cardinal Girolamo Simoncelli who lived from 1522 to 1605]. Regardless, it can’t be dated any later than 1590 no matter who would have written it.

Malachy, a 12th-century bishop of Armagh in what is now Northern Ireland, purportedly had a vision in which he foresaw all of the popes from the death of Pope Innocent II until the destruction of the church and the return of Christ. It is said that he gave an account of his visions to Pope Innocent II, but the document remained unknown in the secret Vatican Archives until its discovery in 1590.

Malachy was obviously held in high esteem as he was canonized as a saint by Pope Clement III on July 6, 1199, 50 years after his death.

Here is his prophecy of the last leader of the Catholic church:

“In extreme persecution will sit Peter the Roman (Petrus Romanus), who will pasture his sheep in tribulations; and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills [i.e. Rome] will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The End.”

In Conclusion:

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” (Revelation 18:4).

This new Catholic constitution is called Praedicate Evangelium (Proclaim the Gospel). Yet Francis criticizes Protestants for evangelizing, or proselytizing, as he put it. But that’s because he doesn’t like the competition. And we don’t accept the man-made doctrines of the Catholic church – at least not those of us who are Bible-believers – and we haven’t joined the broad-way, emergent-divergent so-called “ecumenical” bandwagon that promotes global unity among all religions under the guise of tolerance and cooperation. Many Protestant pastors are guilty of the same thing in these days of apostasy.

The most crucial error among many that the Catholic church teaches is the following:

According to the RCC’s Canon 12, Council of Trent, “If any one shall say that justifying faith is nothing else than confidence in the divine mercy pardoning sins for Christ’s sake, or that it is that confidence alone by which we are justified… let him be accursed.”

Yet, God’s Word tells us that justification/salvation is by faith:

“But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness” (Romans 4:5).

“Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1).

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).

From Dave Hunt: “For the Catholic, salvation does not come through personally receiving Christ as Savior but is a lengthy process that begins with baptism and thereafter depends upon one’s continued relationship to the [Catholic] Church. Salvation comes through participation in the sacraments, penance, good works, suffering for one’s sins and the sins of others here and/or in purgatory, indulgences to reduce time in purgatory, and almost endless masses and Rosaries said on one’s behalf even after one’s death. Catholic evangelism is by works, the very antithesis of “the gospel of the grace of God” (Acts:20:24). – excerpt from A Woman Rides the Beast, 1994

This reminds us of what Christ said to the Pharisees and Scribes in Matthew 15:6-9: “…So for the sake of your tradition you have made void the word of God… ‘teaching as doctrines the commandments of men’”

Though the extra-biblical prophecies may contain partial truth concerning certain events we see unfolding before us, there is only one source – the Bible – that has proven to be 100% true. And it tells us of a coming one-world false church and one-world Antichrist government. It speaks of rampant wickedness, wars and rumor of wars, alignment of end-time nations against the Jews who are back in their land of Israel, etc. The wildly insane weather we’re seeing is not climate change; it’s God’s warning to turn back to Him and accept His free pardon.

We brethren can rest in “our Blessed Hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:13).

We who put our faith in Christ alone for our salvation (John 14:6; Acts 4:12) will be caught up in the twinkling of an eye (1 Corinthians 15:52) to meet Jesus in the clouds (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18) and escape the coming wrath (1 Thessalonians 5:9; Revelation 3:10).

As the late Jack Kelley would say, “We can almost hear the footsteps of the Messiah.”

The Manifestation:: By Cynthia Nuara

“For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither anything hid, that shall not be known and come abroad” (Luke 8:17).

“…these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all…” (2 Timothy 3:8-9).

The man who is widely considered to be the philosopher of American Democracy itself, a pioneer in functional psychology, and the one who laid the foundation of “progressive education” in the United States was an atheist, a radical liberal, and a totalitarian Socialist.

John Dewey died in 1952, but his influence gradually increased after his death to the point where now one could say with assurance that all “US public schools have become Deweyized.”1

His “functional psychology” school of thought is a direct outgrowth of the evolutionary theory of Charles Darwin.

Dewey was a secular humanist/atheist. An article in regarding secular humanism and atheism describes them as essentially the same entity. The main theme that unites them is their disbelief in God/Jesus Christ. Their mission is to educate society and change laws to support their belief. An Atheist Pledge states: “An Atheist loves himself and his fellow man instead of a god.”

The “About” section of the website, The American Humanist Association: Good Without a God, describes the following view: “The American Humanist Association has stood as the voice of humanism in the United States for over 70 years. We strive to bring about a progressive society where being good without a god is an accepted and respected way to live life.”

Dewey said, “There is no God and there is no soul. Hence, there is no need for the props of traditional religion. With dogma and creed excluded, then immutable truth is dead and buried. There is no room for fixed and natural law or permanent moral absolutes.”

So, he was against natural law which is “a body of unchanging moral principles regarded as a basis for all human conduct.”

He was against permanent moral absolutes which maintain that there are certain universal moral principles by which all people’s actions may be judged.

Dewey considered conservative Christianity to be evil with political enemies of his philosophy, as he described in his 1924 essay titled “Fundamentals.”3

Dewey was one of the main voices of liberalism. He wrote in his 1935 book, Liberalism and Social Action, “If radicalism be defined as perception of need for radical change, then today any liberalism which is not also radicalism is irrelevant and doomed.”

So we see here that Dewey was also a radical liberal. He was against anything traditional or conservative. He vehemently disparaged anyone who was in opposition to his radical tactics.

He has also been referred to as a “totalitarian socialist who envisioned total government control over all education through the agency of public schools.”3

His book, Democracy and Education, was listed by Human Events magazine as number five on a list of the ten most harmful books of the 19th and 20th centuries. Number one is The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx; number two is Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler; number three is Quotations from Chairman Mao by Mao Zedong; and number four is the Kinsey Report by Alfred Kinsey.

In Dewey’s above-mentioned book, he pompously disparaged schooling that focused on traditional character development and endowing children with hard knowledge. His views had great influence on the direction of American education, particularly in public schools, and helped nurture the Clinton generation.4

Dewey was one of the major writers that contributed to the Humanist Manifesto.

Dewey actually began his career in the elementary school system before returning to university to earn his PhD, after which he began teaching psychology. He held teaching positions at various universities in the US and was awarded four honorary doctorates from colleges and universities throughout the world. He was influential in many fields, but he had the most influence on the education system.

Summary of “Progressive Educator’s Original Goal? Abolish Christianity” 5:

Before Dewey, the American education system was successful and reinforced Christianity. International journalist and educator Alex Newman who coauthored the book, Crimes of the Educators, sees Dewey as a main villain in a plot that been decades-long in the making to dumb down America’s population and bring on socialism.

Newman said of Dewey, “He wanted to move the United States away from what he considered to be an individualistic, Constitutional Republic where people are free to do as they like and worship God – the Christian nation that we had – and he wanted to move us more to kind of a Soviet-type system.”

Newman added that Dewey wanted to downplay the importance of literacy and focus on turning children into social animals who would work for the so-called “common good.” The effects have been catastrophic. “The kids cannot read their founding documents anymore. They can’t read the Word of God. They can’t think critically, and they rely almost exclusively on the government schools and the mainstream media for their information; and the fruits of this are obvious now. Our society’s falling apart all around us.”

“This is a global agenda,” Newman said. “It’s extremely sinister. They want to dumb down the American people and all of humanity for the purpose of attacking the word of God and building kind of a global society, they like to call it, and this is going to be an absolute nightmare.”

Newman warned parents to resist this agenda and remove their children from public schools – either homeschool them or find a good Christian school. If this isn’t possible, then at least opt them out of Common Core testing. “The government schools are destroying the children,” Newman warned. “Common Core is going to accelerate this, and the agenda is unimaginably sinister, and so people need to take action.”

The following is a summary of the video on “Crimes of the Educators” presented by Alex Newman on the Heartland Institute website:

In his research, Samuel Blumenfeld, author of many books on education, stumbled across quackery in the teaching of reading – dumbing down children so they can’t read. From the beginning of education in US schools, it was written in our legislation that children needed to learn to read the Bible and that it needed to be included in school curriculum. Such is the case no more.

This is not to disparage all teachers. Many do the best they can under the circumstances in which they’ve found themselves. But the education system today is a criminal enterprise. It is involved in:

Child abuse: deliberately harming the minds of children, even physically harming the brain itself.

Contributing to the delinquency of minors; pornographic sex “education.” UNESCO, a branch of the UN, recommends teaching sex education to four-year-olds.

Destroying belief in biblical religion: Schools promote atheism, nilhisim, humanism, Satanism, evolutionism, etc.

Drug Pushing: pushing amphetamines onto children for school-induced problems.

Fraud and extortion: They want more taxpayer dollars for education, yet they’re dumbing down the children.

Treason: deliberately dumbing down of the nation to overthrow our system of government and replacing it with a totalitarian system of government. In 1983, Ronald Reagan’s National Commission on Education report showed a failing education system. It stated that if any unfriendly foreign power had tried to impose this education system on America, we might have considered it an act of war.

(In reality, a foreign power did exactly that. I’ve pointed this out numerous times, but it bears repeating. Watch the warning in 1984 from Soviet defector Yuri Besmenov. The Soviets, in using the education system to gradually take down the US, influenced educators such as John Dewey and others who were referred to behind their backs as “useful idiots.”) < Click on the blue link.

The Commission also stated in 1983 that the education system threatens our future as a nation. Hundreds of years ago, reading and writing was strongly taught in schools, as was the Bible. By 1812 only four or less out of a thousand couldn’t read and write properly. Now look at today. A surprising number of students finish school unable to do either.

Homeschooling was the norm in early education. Most of our founding fathers were homeschooled; some had a little bit of formal education, yet they knew other languages, the history of political systems, science, economic thought… and the Bible. And we didn’t spend a trillion dollars on education.

Statistics today are unbelievable but true. Go to the US Department of Education’s website if you don’t believe it. Just a very small sampling of modern education from a Federal study showed:

In 1993, half of American adults could barely read. This was true again in a 2003 study.

Two thirds of residents over age 15 in Washington, D.C. are functionally illiterate.

Less than one third of students in 8th grade can read proficiently.

Every ten years they have to re-center the SAT’s to conceal the fact that students are getting dumber and dumber. The students considered smart today are actually in many cases dumber than the dumb students back in the 1950s and 60s.

Alex Newman has done studies from the late 1800s and early 1900s and has found that middle school students then were more educated than a lot of students coming out of today’s universities.

Educators call for more money to be spent on education, yet more money spent hasn’t improved things at all. It’s only worsening.

Horace Mann, after visiting Prussia, came up with the “Prussian Model” – whole-word memorization of words rather than using phonics. While this method worked for deaf students, it did not work well for hearing students. He also came up with the idea of government taking over the schools.

Getting back to John Dewey, he used our entire country as an experiment to overthrow the system and replace it with socialist kookery. He also re-introduced Mann’s whole-word theory of teaching reading (despite its proven failure), obviously as part of a dumbing-down process for his new order socialist agenda of collectivism. UNESCO also promotes this method, and it’s incredibly damaging to children’s brains.

A neuroscience study compared the brains of children who have been taught phonics to the ones who’ve been taught using the whole-word method, and there is a difference in the brains. The whole-word teaching is messing with the minds of the children—literally. And FYI: This study was done by a “progressive” neuroscientist who is okay with government-run schools, etc., but even he said that children need to go back to learning to read the correct way, using phonics.

Despite the knowledge of the damage sight-word reading does, Common Core teaches children to read this way. Now we have people who won’t pick up a book. They won’t read the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence. They won’t read the Bible, etc.

Dewey knew people would never agree to this insanity, so he promoted a gradual change – the frog in the pot comes to mind. It doesn’t realize the danger until the water gets hot.

Dewey went to the Soviet Union and thought Lenin was doing a great job. Imagine that. Useful idiot again comes to mind.

The Clintons involved themselves in bringing about more federal involvement in the schools with the national standards, and Obama imposed Common Core in the states using tax-funded bribes.

The two experts personally selected by the Common Core promoters to evaluate the subject matter of Common Core standards (presuming they’d go along with it given their beliefs) both refused to sign on to it:

One of them, Sandra Stotsky from Harvard, said this is going to reduce student’s critical thinking abilities, take out all the great literature, etc., – dumbing down the students by taking out the important things they need to know.

The other one, Dr. James Milligram, a well-known mathematician from Stanford, said the math was so confusing—this isn’t how you teach math. Some of it he said is based on incorrect math – all of this dumbing down the students.

Yet, Common Core is officially taught in most US states and D.C.

In Science, they’re indoctrinating students to buy into the global warming agenda. They’re teaching them that all humans and animals started out as rocks that were rained down on for millions of years to form slime from which eventually evolved into what we are now. So children don’t see any real value to their lives.

In History, they’re taught that America invented slavery, when in reality every country in the world practiced slavery, and America was one of the first to put an end to it here, and helped to end it around the world.

Lest one think this is just a problem in America, think again. It’s global.

UNESCO is even worse than Common Core. UNESCO was founded, admittedly, for the purpose of world government. Even as far back as 1949, they put out pamphlets indicating that schools need to combat family attitudes and family values. They advocate teaching even to 4-year-olds disgusting things that will “blow your mind.”

UNESCO and Bill Gates together have a World Core Curriculum whose standards are dedicated to Alice Bailey. Alice Bailey founded the Lucifer Publishing Company and writes New Age books. She claimed that “ascended masters” would “take her over” and she would write these books like Education in the New Age.

Arne Duncan, Obama’s education secretary for seven years, said UNESCO is his global partner and his global education agenda – a weapon to change the world, including “sustainability” [aka global warming – ruse for global governance, also Gaia “Mother Earth” nature worship] interjected into every component of the education system.

The current director general of UNESCO, Audrey Azoulay, is a Socialist. And the previous director general, Irena Bokova, is a Communist.

According to Audrey Azoulay, “None of the major challenges facing the world today can be met by any one country on its own without relying on the fundamental pillars of science, education and culture [in UNESCO’s view of what these fundamental pillars are]. Thus, UNESCO can and must fully participate in a world order based on multilateralism (global government) and humanist values (no belief in God).” – source

The previous UNESCO director general, Irina Bokova, was actively involved in the education system and also scientific cooperation for “sustainable” development [aka global warming agenda].

Useful Idiots! Useful Idiots Everywhere!

Yes, they’re literally everywhere – so-called intellectuals who are just “educated fools” ruining minds by the millions; “political prostitutes” from the Saul Alinsky school of thought,” adolescents in adult bodies in positions of authority (see Isaiah 3’s example of what is always the last stage in the fall of nations); foul-mouthed fanatical feminists; entertainment industry’s egotistical ignoramuses; mainstream medianite minions; and deceived sheeple slurping from the socialist silver platter, sucking this nation dry.

Sound harsh? So is what is happening to society. We need to stop being silent and instead speak out! Afraid of offending someone? Why? Aren’t we offended by what’s going on? Think of what’s being done to the children! That ought to light a fire under even the feckliest of fannies – for the sake of their families, if nothing else.

Jesus’ Warning to Those Who Harm Children

“And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea” (Matthew 18:6).

God’s Wrath Against Sinful Humanity

From “The Bible teaches moral absolutism in spirit… God has placed in our hearts a standard of right and wrong that, if followed, would result in our being blessed.”

The West is a mess, though it used to be blessed when the name of Christ it used to confess. Now it’s “progressed” to a huge abscess! God is warning the world through increasing incredulous events. But these pale in comparison to the manifestation that is coming – and all are without excuse who will be left behind to witness it.

Romans 1:18-32 “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet [due].

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
