How the Vatican created Islam
How the Vatican created Islam. The astonishing story from an
ex-Jesuit priest, Alberto Rivera, which was told to him by Cardinal
Bea while he was at the Vatican. By Alberto Rivera |
"The Destruction of the Temple at Jerusalem" by Nicolas Poussin
"The Destruction of the Temple at Jerusalem" by Nicolas Poussin
(1637). This information came from Alberto Rivera, former Jesuit
priest after his conversion to Protestant Christianity. It is
excerpted from "The Prophet," published by Chick Publications, PO
Box 661, Chino CA 91708. Since its publication, after several
unsuccessful attempts on his life, he died suddenly from food
poisoning. His testimony should not be silenced. Dr. Rivera speaks
to us still ...
"What I'm going to tell you is what I learned in secret
briefings in the Vatican when I was a Jesuit priest, under oath and
induction. A Jesuit cardinal named Augustine Bea showed us how
desperately the Roman Catholics wanted Jerusalem at the end of the
third century. Because of its religious history and its strategic
location, the Holy City was considered a priceless treasure. A
scheme had to be developed to make Jerusalem a Roman Catholic
"The great untapped source of manpower that could do this job
was the children of Ishmael. The poor Arabs fell victim to one of
the most clever plans ever devised by the powers of darkness. Early
Christians went everywhere with the gospel setting up small
churches, but they met heavy opposition. Both the Jews and the
Roman government persecuted the believers in Christ to stop their
spread. But the Jews rebelled against Rome, and in 70 AD, Roman
armies under General Titus smashed Jerusalem and destroyed the
great Jewish temple which was the heart of Jewish worship...in
fulfillment of Christ's prophecy in Matthew 24:2.
"On this holy placed today where the temple once stood, the Dome
of the Rock Mosque stands as Islam's second most holy place.
Sweeping changes were in the wind. Corruption, apathy, greed,
cruelty, perversion and rebellion were eating at the Roman Empire,
and it was ready to collapse. The persecution against Christians
was useless as they continued to lay down their lives for the
gospel of Christ.
"The only way Satan could stop this thrust was to create a
counterfeit "Christian" religion to destroy the work of God. The
solution was in Rome. Their religion had come from ancient Babylon
and all it needed was a face-lift. This didn't happen overnight,
but began in the writings of the 'early church fathers'.
"It was through their writings that a new religion would take
shape. The statue of Jupiter in Rome was eventually called St.
Peter, and the statue of Venus was changed to the Virgin Mary. The
site chosen for its headquarters was on one of the seven hills
called 'Vaticanus', the place of the diving serpent where the
Satanic temple of Janus stood.
"The great counterfeit religion was Roman Catholicism, called
'Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations
of the Earth'- Revelation 17:5. She was raised up to block the
gospel, slaughter the believers in Christ, establish religions,
create wars and make the nations drunk with the wine of her
fornication as we will see.
"Three major religions have one thing in common - each has a
holy place where they look for guidance. Roman Catholicism looks to
the Vatican as the Holy City. The Jews look to the wailing wall in
Jerusalem, and the Muslims look to Mecca as their Holy City. Each
group believes that they receive certain types of blessings for the
rest of their lives for visiting their holy place. In the
beginning, Arab visitors would bring gifts to the 'House of God',
and the keepers of the Kaaba were gracious to all who came. Some
brought their idols and, not wanting to offend these people, their
idols were placed inside the sanctuary. It is said that the Jews
looked upon the Kaaba as an outlying tabernacle of the Lord with
veneration until it became polluted with idols. The Kaaba, Mecca.

"In a tribal contention over a well(Zamzam) the treasure of the
Kaaba and the offerings that pilgrims had given were dumped down
the well and it was filled with sand - it disappeared. Many years
later Adb Al-Muttalib was given visions telling him where to find
the well and its treasure. He became the hero of Mecca, and he was
destined to become the grandfather of Muhammad. Before this time,
Augustine became the bishop of North Africa and was effective in
winning Arabs to Roman Catholicism, including whole tribes. It was
among these Arab converts to Catholicism that the concept of
looking for an Arab prophet developed.
"Muhammad's father died from illness and sons born to great Arab
families in places like Mecca were sent into the desert to be
suckled and weaned and spend some of their childhood with Bedouin
tribes for training and to avoid the plagues in the cities. "After
his mother and grandfather also died, Muhammad was with his uncle
when a Roman Catholic monk learned of his identity and said, "Take
your brother's son back to his country and guard him against the
Jews, for by god, if they see him and know of him that which I
know, they will construe evil against him. Great things are in
store for this brother's son of yours."
"The Roman Catholic monk had fanned the flames for future Jewish
persecutions at the hands of the followers of Muhammad. The Vatican
desperately wanted Jerusalem because of its religious significance,
but was blocked by the Jews. "Another problem was the true
Christians in North Africa who preached the gospel. Roman
Catholicism was growing in power, but would not tolerate
opposition. Somehow the Vatican had to create a weapon to eliminate
both the Jews and the true Christian believers who refused to
accept Roman Catholicism. Lookng to North Africa, they saw the
multitudes of Arabs as a source of manpower to do their dirty work.
Some Arabs had become Roman Catholic, and could be used in
reporting information to leaders in Rome. Others were used in an
underground spy network to carry out Rome's master plan to control
the great multitudes of Arabs who rejected Catholicism. When 'St
Augustine' appeared on the scene, he knew what was going on. His
monasteries served as bases to seek out and destroy Bible
manuscripts owned by the true Christians.
"The Vatican wanted to create a messiah for the Arabs, someone
they could raise up as a great leader, a man with charisma whom
they could train, and eventually unite all the non-Catholic Arabs
behind him, creating a mighty army that would ultimately capture
Jerusalem for the pope. In the Vatican briefing, Cardinal Bea told
us this story: 'A wealthy Arabian lady who was a faithful follower
of the pope played a tremendous part in this drama. She was a widow
named Khadijah. She gave her wealth to the church and retired to
aconvent, but was given an assignment. She was to find a brilliant
young man who could be usedby the Vatican to create a new religion
and become the messiah for the children of Ishmael. Khadijah had a
cousin named Waraquah,, who was also a very faithful Roman Catholic
and the Vatican placed him in a critical role as Muhammad's
advisor. He had tremendous influence onMuhammad.
'Teachers were sent to young Muhammad and he had intensive
training. Muhammad studied the works of St. Augustine which
prepared him for his "great calling." The Vatican had Catholic
Arabs across North Africa spread the story of a great one who was
about to rise up among the people and be the chosen one of their
God. 'While Muhammad was being prepared, he was told that his
enemies were the Jews and that the only true Christians were Roman
Catholic. He was taught that others calling themselves Christians
were actually wicked impostors and should be destroyed. Many
Muslims believe this. 'Muhammad began receiving "divine
revelations" and his wife's Catholic cousin Waraquah helped
interpret them. From this came the Koran. In the fifth year of
Muhammad's mission, persecution came against his followers because
they refused to worship the idols in the Kaaba. 'Muhammad
instructed some of them to flee to Abysinnia where Negus, the Roman
Catholic king accepted them because Muhammad's views on the virgin
Mary were so close to Roman Catholic doctrine. These Muslims
received protection from Catholic kings because of Muhammad's
'Muhammad later conquered Mecca and the Kaaba was cleared of
idols. History proves that before Islam came into existence, the
Sabeans in Arabia worshiped the moon-god who was married to the
sun-god. They gave birth to three goddesses who were worshipped
throughout the Arab world as "Daughters of Allah" An idol excavated
at Hazor in Palestine in 1950's shows Allah sitting on a throne
with the crescent moon on his chest.
'Muhammad claimed he had a vision from Allah and was told, "You
are the messenger of Allah." This began his career as a prophet and
he received many messages. By the time Muhammad died, the religion
of Islam was exploding. The nomadic Arab tribes were joining forces
in the name of Allah and his prophet, Muhammad.
'Some of Muhammad's writings were placed in the Koran, others
were never published. They are now in the hands of high ranking
holy men (Ayatollahs) in the Islamic faith.' "When Cardinal Bea
shared with us in the Vatican, he said, these writings are guarded
because they contain information that links the Vatican to the
creation of Islam. Both sides have so much information on each
other, that if exposed, it could create such a scandal that it
would be a disaster for both religions.
"In their "holy" book, the Koran, Christ is regarded as only a
prophet. If the pope was His representative on earth, then he also
must be a prophet of God. This caused the followers of Muhammad to
fear and respect the pope as another "holy man."
"The pope moved quickly and issued bulls granting the Arab
generals permission to invade and conquer the nations of North
Africa. The Vatican helped to finance the building of these massive
Islamic armies in exchange for three favors:
1. Eliminate the Jews and Christians (true believers, which they
2. Protect the Augustinian Monks and Roman Catholics.
3. Conquer Jerusalem for "His Holiness" in the Vatican.
"As time went by, the power of Islam became tremendous - Jews
and true Christians were slaughtered, and Jerusalem fell into their
hands. Roman Catholics were never attacked, nor were their shrines,
during this time. But when the pope asked for Jerusalem, he was
surprised at their denial! The Arab generals had such military
success that they could not be intimidated by the pope - nothing
could stand in the way of their own plan.
"Under Waraquah's direction, Muhammad wrote that Abraham offered
Ishmael as a sacrifice. The Bible says that Isaac was the
sacrifice, but Muhammad removed Isaac's name and inserted Ishmael's
name. As a result of this and Muhammad's vision, the faithful
Muslims built a mosque, the Dome of the Rock, in Ishmael's honor on
the site of the Jewish temple that was destroyed in 70 AD. This
made Jerusalem the 2nd most holy place in the Islam faith. How
could they give such a sacred shrine to the pope without causing a
revolt? Image from: letsgo.com.

"The pope realized what they had created was out of control when
he heard they were calling "His Holiness" an infidel. The Muslim
generals were determined to conquer the world for Allah and now
they turned toward Europe. Islamic ambassadors approached the pope
and asked for papal bulls to give them permission to invade
European countries. "The Vatican was outraged; war was inevitable.
Temporal power and control of the world was considered the basic
right of the pope. He wouldn't think of sharing it with those whom
he considered heathens. "The pope raised up his armies and called
them crusades to hold back the children of Ishmael from grabbing
Catholic Europe. The crusades lasted centuries and Jerusalem
slipped out of the pope's hands. "Turkey fell and Spain and
Portugal were invaded by Islamic forces. In Portugal, they called a
mountain village "Fatima" in honor of Muhammad's daughter, never
dreaming it would become world famous.
"Years later when the Muslim armies were poised on the islands
of Sardinia and Corsica, to invade Italy, there was a serious
problem. The Islamic generals realized they were too far extended.
It was time for peace talks. One of the negotiators was Francis of
Assisi. "As a result, the Muslims were allowed to occupy Turkey in
a "Christian" world, and the Catholics were allowed to occupy
Lebanon in the Arab world. It was also agreed that the Muslims
could build mosques in Catholic countries without interference as
long as Roman Catholicism could flourish Arab countries.
"Cardinal Bea told us in Vatican briefings that both the Muslims
and Roman Catholics agreed to block and destroy the efforts of
their common enemy, Bible-believing Christianm missionaries.
Through these concordats, Satan blocked the children of Ishmael
from a knowledge of Scripture and the truth. "A light control was
kept on Muslims from the Ayatollah down through the Islamic
priests, nuns and monks. The Vatican also engineers a campaign of
hatred between the Muslim Arabs and the Jews. Before this, they had
"The Islamic community looks on the Bible-believing missionary
as a devil who brings poison to the children of Allah. This
explains years of ministry in those countries with little results.
"The next plan was to control Islam. In 1910, Portugal was going
Socialistic. Red flags were appearing and the Catholic Church was
facing a major problem. Increasing numbers were against the church.
"The Jesuits wanted Russia involved, and the location of this
vision at Fatima could play a key part in pulling Islam to the
"In 1917, the Virgin appeared in Fatima. "The Mother of God" was
a smashing success, playing to overflow crowds. As a result, the
Socialists of Portugal suffered a major defeat. "Roman Catholics
world-wide began praying for the conversion of Russia and the
Jesuits invented the Novenas to Fatima which they could perform
throughout North Africa, spreading good public relations to the
Muslim world. The Arabs thought
they were honoring the daughter of Muhammad, which is what the
Jesuits wanted them to believe.
Lucia de Santos,
Francisco Marco and
Jacinta Maro in 1917.
"As a result of the vision of Fatima, Pope Pius XII ordered his
Nazi army to crush Russia and the Orthodox religion and make Russia
Roman Catholic." A few years after he lost World war II, Pope Pius
XII startled the world with his phoney dancing sun vision to keep
Fatima in the news. It was great religious show biz and the world
swallowed it. "Not surprisingly, Pope Pius was the only one to see
this vision. As a result, a group of followers has grown into a
Blue Army world-wide, totaling millions of faithful Roman Catholics
ready to die for the blessed virgin.
"But we haven't seen anything yet. The Jesuits have their Virgin
Mary scheduled to appear four or five times in China, Russia, and
major appearance in the U.S.
"What has this got to do with Islam? Note Bishop Sheen's
statement: "Our Lady's appearances at Fatima marked the turning
point in the history of the world's 350 million Muslims. After the
death of his daughter, Muhammad wrote that she "is the most holy of
all women in Paradise, next to Mary.""He believed that the Virgin
Mary chose to be known as Our Lady of Fatima as a sign and a pledge
that the Muslims who believe in Christ's virgin birth, will come to
believe in His divinity. "Bishop Sheen pointed out that the pilgrim
virgin statues of Our Lady of Fatima were enthusiastically received
by Muslims in Africa, India, and elsewhere, and that many Muslims
are now coming into the Roman Catholic Church."
WE SHALL DESTROY THE CLERGY Excerpt from the Protocols of
2. WE HAVE LONG PAST TAKEN CARE TO DISCREDIT THE PRIESTHOOD OF
THE "GOYIM," and thereby to ruin their mission on earth which in
these days might still be a great hindrance to us. Day by day its
influence on the peoples of the world is falling lower. FREEDOM OF
CONSCIENCE HAS BEEN DECLARED EVERYWHERE, SO THAT NOW ONLY YEARS
DIVIDE US FROM THE MOMENT OF THE COMPLETE WRECKING OF THAT
CHRISTIAN RELIGION: as to other religions we shall have still less
difficulty in dealing with them, but it would be premature to speak
of this now. We shall set clericalism and clericals into such
narrow frames as to make their influence move in retrogressive
proportion to its former progress.
3. When the time comes finally to destroy the papal court the
finger of an invisible hand will point the nations towards this
court. When, however, the nations fling themselves upon it, we
shall come forward in the guise of its defenders as if to save
excessive bloodshed. By this diversion we shall penetrate to its
very bowels and be sure we shall never come out again until we have
gnawed through the entire strength of this place. (Karl Rothschild
acted as "peacemaker" between the Vatican and her enemies, loaning
the Vatican five million pounds in a period of difficulty. Gregory
XVI conferred a Papal decoration on Kalman Rothschild since when
Rothschilds have been "Guardians of the Vatican Treasury").
4. THE KING OF THE JEWS WILL BE THE REAL POPE OF THE UNIVERSE,
THE PATRIARCH OF THE INTERNATIONAL CHURCH
5. But, IN THE MEANTIME, while we are re-educating youth in new
traditional religions and afterwards in ours, WE SHALL NOT OVERTLY
LAY A FINGER ON EXISTING CHURCHES, BUT WE SHALL FIGHT AGAINST THEM
BY CRITICISM CALCULATED TO PRODUCE SCHISM . . .
6. In general, then, our contemporary press will continue to
CONVICT State affairs, religions, incapacities of the GOYIM, always
using the most unprincipled expressions in order by every means to
lower their prestige in the manner which can only be practiced by
the genius of our gifted tribe . . . (Calling the Jim Jones
massacre in Guyana a mass suicide, not a C.I.A./MK-ULTRA/U.S.
Government massacre? Denying the massacre of the Branch Dravidian
sect at Waco, Texas, was a needless and deliberate massacre by the
7. Our kingdom will be an apologia of the divinity Vishnu, in
whom is found its personification - in our hundred hands will be,
one in each, the springs of the machinery of social life. We shall
see everything without the aid of official police which, in that
scope of its rights which we elaborated for the use of the GOYIM,
hinders governments from seeing. In our programs ONE-THIRD OF OUR
SUBJECTS WILL KEEP THE REST UNDER OBSERVATION from a sense of duty,
on the principle of volunteer service to the State. It will then be
no disgrace to be a spy and informer, but a merit: unfounded
denunciations, however, will be cruelly punished that there may be
no development of abuses of this right.
8. Our agents will be taken from the higher as well as the lower
ranks of society, from among the administrative class who spend
their time in amusements, editors, printers and publishers,
booksellers, clerks, and salesmen, workmen, coachmen, lackeys, et
cetera. This body, having no rights and not being empowered to take
any action on their own account, and consequently a police without
any power, will only witness and report: verification of their
reports and arrests will depend upon a responsible group of
controllers of police affairs, while the actual act of arrest will
be performed by the gendarmerie and the municipal police. Any
person not denouncing anything seen or heard concerning questions
of polity will also be charged with and made responsible for
concealment, if it be proved that he is guilty of this crime.
MASSES LED BY LIES
4. Moreover, the art of directing masses and individuals by
means of cleverly manipulated theory and verbiage, by regulations
of life in common and all sorts of other quirks, in all which the
GOYIM understand nothing, belongs likewise to the specialists of
our administrative brain. Reared on analysis, observation, on
delicacies of fine calculation, in this species of skill we have no
rivals, any more than we have either in the drawing up of plans of
political actions and solidarity. In this respect the Jesuits alone
might have compared with us, but we have contrived to discredit
them in the eyes of the unthinking mob as an overt organization,
while we ourselves all the while have kept our secret organization
in the shade. However, it is probably all the same to the world who
is its sovereign lord, whether the head of Catholicism or our
despot of the blood of Zion! But to us, the Chosen People, it is
very far from being a matter of indifference.
5. FOR A TIME PERHAPS WE MIGHT BE SUCCESSFULLY DEALT WITH BY A
COALITION OF THE "GOYIM" OF ALL THE WORLD: but from this danger we
are secured by the discord existing among them whose roots are so
deeply seated that they can never now be plucked up. We have set
one against another the personal and national reckonings of the
GOYIM, religious and race hatreds, which we have fostered into a
huge growth in the course of the past twenty centuries. This is the
reason why there is not one State which would anywhere receive
support if it were to raise its arm, for every one of them must
bear in mind that any agreement against us would be unprofitable to
itself. We are too strong - there is no evading our power. THE
NATIONS CANNOT COME TO EVEN AN INCONSIDERABLE PRIVATE AGREEMENT
WITHOUT OUR SECRETLY HAVING A HAND IN IT.
6. PER ME REGES REGNANT. "It is through me that Kings reign."
And it was said by the prophets that we were chosen by God Himself
to rule over the whole earth. God has endowed us with genius that
we may be equal to our task. Were genius in the opposite camp it
would still struggle against us, but even so, a newcomer is no
match for the old-established settler: the struggle would be
merciless between us, such a fight as the world has never seen.
Aye, and the genius on their side would have arrived too late. All
the wheels of the machinery of all States go by the force of the
engine, which is in our hands, and that engine of the machinery of
States is - Gold. The science of political economy invented by our
learned elders has for long past been giving royal prestige to
7. Capital, if it is to co-operate untrammeled, must be free to
establish a monopoly of industry and trade: this is already being
put in execution by an unseen hand in all quarters of the world.
This freedom will give political force to those engaged in
industry, and that will help to oppress the people. Nowadays it is
more important to disarm the peoples than to lead them into war:
more important to use for our advantage the passions which have
burst into flames than to quench their fire: more important to
eradicate them. THE PRINCIPLE OBJECT OF OUR DIRECTORATE CONSISTS IN
THIS: TO DEBILITATE THE PUBLIC MIND BY CRITICISM; TO LEAD IT AWAY
FROM SERIOUS REFLECTIONS CALCULATED TO AROUSE RESISTANCE; TO
DISTRACT THE FORCES OF THE MIND TOWARDS A SHAM FIGHT OF EMPTY
8. In all ages the people of the world, equally with
individuals, have accepted words for deeds, for THEY ARE CONTENT
WITH A SHOW and rarely pause to note, in the public arena, whether
promises are followed by performance. Therefore we shall establish
show institutions which will give eloquent proof of their benefit
9. We shall assume to ourselves the liberal physiognomy of all
parties, of all directions, and we shall give that physiognomy a
VOICE IN ORATORS WHO WILL SPEAK SO MUCH THAT THEY WILL EXHAUST THE
PATIENCE OF THEIR HEARERS AND PRODUCE AN ABHORRENCE OF ORATORY.
10. IN ORDER TO PUT PUBLIC OPINION INTO OUR HANDS WE MUST BRING
IT INTO A STATE OF BEWILDERMENT BY GIVING EXPRESSION FROM ALL SIDES
TO SO MANY CONTRADICTORY OPINIONS AND FOR SUCH LENGTH OF TIME AS
WILL SUFFICE TO MAKE THE "GOYIM" LOSE THEIR HEADS IN THE LABYRINTH
AND COME TO SEE THAT THE BEST THING IS TO HAVE NO OPINION OF ANY
KIND IN MATTERS POLITICAL, which it is not given to the public to
understand, because they are understood only by him who guides the
public. This is the first secret.
11. The second secret requisite for the success of our
government is comprised in the following: To multiply to such an
extent national failings, habits, passions, conditions of civil
life, that it will be impossible for anyone to know where he is in
the resulting chaos, so that the people in consequence will fail to
understand one another. This measure will also serve us in another
way, namely, to sow discord in all parties, to dislocate all
collective forces which are still unwilling to submit to us, and to
discourage any kind of personal initiative which might in any
degree hinder our affair. THERE IS NOTHING MORE DANGEROUS THAN
PERSONAL INITIATIVE: if it has genius behind it, such initiative
can do more than can be done by millions of people among whom we
have sown discord. We must so direct the education of the GOYIM
communities that whenever they come upon a matter requiring
initiative they may drop their hands in despairing impotence. The
strain which results from freedom of actions saps the forces when
it meets with the freedom of another. From this collision arise
grave moral shocks, disenchantments, failures. BY ALL THESE MEANS
WE SHALL SO WEAR DOWN THE "GOYIM" THAT THEY WILL BE COMPELLED TO
OFFER US INTERNATIONAL POWER OF A NATURE THAT BY ITS POSITION WILL
ENABLE US WITHOUT ANY VIOLENCE GRADUALLY TO ABSORB ALL THE STATE
FORCES OF THE WORLD AND TO FORM A SUPER-GOVERNMENT. In place of the
rulers of to-day we shall set up a bogey which will be called the
Super-Government Administration. Its hands will reach out in all
directions like nippers and its organization will be of such
colossal dimensions that it cannot fail to subdue all the nations
of the world.

How Isis the Egyptian goddess was introduced in the Catholic
Church as Mary
[[Vol. 2, Page]] 41 MARY-VIRGIN ONLY ISIS RECHRISTENED.[ Isis
Unveiled by H. P. Blavatsky Vol. 2.] Theosophical University Press
Did the Neo-platonic school reach such a height of philosophy as
when nearest its end. Uniting the mystic theosophy of old Egypt
with the refined philosophy of the Greeks; nearer to the ancient
Mysteries of Thebes and Memphis than they had been for centuries;
versed in the science of soothsaying and divination, as in the art
of the Therapeutists; friendly with the acutest men of the Jewish
nation, who were deeply imbued with the Zoroastrian ideas, the
Neo-platonists tended to amalgamate the old wisdom of the Oriental
Kabala with the more refined conceptions of the Occidental
Theosophists. Notwithstanding the treason of the Catholic
Christians, who saw fit, for political reasons, after the days of
Constantine, to repudiate their tutors, the influence of the new
Platonic philosophy is conspicuous in the subsequent adoption of
dogmas, the origin of which can be traced but too easily to that
remarkable school. Though mutilated and disfigured, they still
preserve a strong family likeness, which nothing can
But, if the knowledge of the occult powers of nature opens the
spiritual sight of man, enlarges his intellectual faculties, and
leads him unerringly to a profounder veneration for the Creator,
[not The Almighty God] on the other hand ignorance, dogmatic
narrow-mindedness, and a childish fear of looking to the bottom of
things, invariably leads to fetish-worship and superstition.
When Cyril, the Bishop of Alexandria, had openly embraced the
cause of Isis, the Egyptian goddess, and had anthropomorphized her
into Mary, the mother of God; and the trinitarian controversy had
taken place; from that moment the Egyptian doctrine of the
emanation of the creative God out of Emepht began to be tortured in
a thousand ways, until the Councils had agreed upon the adoption of
it as it now stands the disfigured Ternary of the kabalistic
Solomon and Philo!
The Resurrection of Jesus Christ
A. The resurrectiondenied by some. There is surely no other
single doctrine in all the Bible so hated by Satan as the
resurrection of Christ. He has attempted (always unsuccessfully) to
ridicule it, downplay it, deny it, or simply explain it away. Here
are but a few theories the devil has inspired his children (ungodly
men) to promote concerning this precious doctrine.
Because the Christian faith stands or fails on the bodily
resurrection of Jesus Christ, for it guarantees that Jesus was the
Son of God. That God the Father accepted what Jesus did at Calvary
on the basis of the resurrection; the risen Jesus pleads for his
people before the Father, therefore, believers have the of eternal
life, and believers will also rise and have resurrected bodies like
that of Jesus Christ. Hereunder are the theories that have through
the years been concocted to discredit and destroy Christianity by
the Priori of Zion a high level Masonic Rosicrucian Secret
1. The fraud theory. This says that either Jesus or his
disciples (or both) simply invented the entire thing. It would have
us believe that Christ was simply a clever crook who read the
prophecies regarding the Messiah in the Old Testament and set about
arranging for them to be fulfilled by himself. However, it would
have been somewhat difficult for an impostor to arrange the place
where he was to be born (it had to be Bethlehem), or for some Roman
soldiers to cooperate by not breaking his bones on the cross.
2. The wrong tomb theory. That the women and his disciples went
to the wrong tomb, because they may not have known in which tomb he
was buried. But the women could not have gone or led the disciples
to the wrong tomb as claimed by this theory, because in Luke
chapter 23:55, we read that the women were the same group that
followed the body of Jesus and saw where and how he was buried,
because they had planned to return to the exact tomb after the
Sabbath observation with the spices.
3. The swoon theory. We are informed here that Christ merely
fainted on the cross and was later revived by the cool, dark air of
the tomb. But how did he get out of that tomb? What bright light
did he use to blind and terrify the Roman soldiers who stood guard
4. The vision theory. This would advocate that the early
disciples were guilty of using some kind of primitive LSD. If this
be true, then the practice was certainly widespread, for on one
occasion alone over 500 claimed to have seen him. There is not one
speck of biblical or secular evidence to support such an empty
5. The spirit theory. This holds that only Jesus spirit arose.
But Jesus is said to have eaten while in his resurrected body. The
very nailprints were still there. This view, like the above, cannot
for one second stand the logic of reason.
6. The heart theory. Here we are to believe that he was only
resurrected in the heart of his friends. The trouble here, however,
is that none of those friends actually believed he would literally
rise from the dead until they saw him with their own eyes, and
heard his words with their ears.
B. The resurrectiondeclared by many.
1. David predicted it.
"For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou
suffer thine Holy One to see corruption" (Ps. 16:10).
2. Isaiah predicted it.
"And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his
death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in
his mouth. Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him
to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he
shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of
the Lord shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of
his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my
righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall
divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his
soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he
bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors"
3. Jesus himself predicted it many times.
"Then certain of the scribes, and of the Pharisees answered,
saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. But he answered and
said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a
sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the
prophet Jonas: For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the
whales belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three
nights in the heart of the earth" (Mt. 12:38-40).
"From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples,
how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the
elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised
again the third day" (Mt. 16:21).
"Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not
we cast him out? And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto
them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men: and
they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again.
And they were exceeding sorry" (Mt. 17:19, 22, 23).
"Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be
betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they
shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles
to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he
shall rise again" (Mt. 20:18, 19).
"But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee"
"Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected
of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be
raised the third day" (Lk. 9:22).
"Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign showest
thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? Jesus answered
and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will
raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this
temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? But he
spake of the temple of his body. When therefore he was risen from
the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them;
and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said"
C. The resurrectiondoubted by most. It is ironic and sad that
the predicted resurrection of Christ was remembered only by his
enemies, the Pharisees, and not by his friends.
"Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the
chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate, saying, Sir,
we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After
three days I will rise again. Command therefore that the sepulchre
be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night,
and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the
dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first" (Mt.
So much for his enemies. But what about his friends?

"Don't set people up as experts over your life, letting them

"In Ad 325, the Roman Catholic Church was created by a pagan
emperor named Constantine. It was only superficially a Christian
Church. The First Nicean Council was assembled to work out the
details. The Nicean Council also included elders of all the major
Pagan religions of Rome. Bishops from the cults of Mithras, Tammuz,
Oannes (Dagon), Ceres, Janus, Bacchus, Apollo, Osiris, Jupiter, and
Constantine's own religion: Sol Invictus, were invited. It was
Constantine's wish that all of the Pagan religions, be unified into
one "Catholic" church. "Catholic" means universal. The proceedings
of that council were conducted by Constantine with an iron
hand."-Christianity Has Pagan DNA Pagan Roots in Earliest

"Another sign of sun worship is the halo. Halos are pictured as
a luminous ring or a disk of light that surrounds an object.
Webster's Dictionary describes a halo as the aura of glory,
veneration, or sentiment surrounding an idealized person or
thing."-Sun Worship in Christianity?A study by Timothy
"it was the ancient pagans that originated this practice of
using halos or "sun-disks" to signify the divinity of the sun god
Ray. Many of the customs and much of the icons of our worlds
religions were adapted from paganism, and Sun worship is what
spawned the use of these sun disks in pictures and graven
images."-Sun Worship in Christianity?A study by Timothy
"The truth is that the halo did not come into Christian art
until the third century at a time when the Catholic Church grabbed
it from the pagans."-Sun Worship in Christianity?A study by Timothy
"Both the title and structure of the Roman Catholic Church are
directly derived from the title and structure of the pagan Roman
imperial cult."-Particulars of Christianity:301 Roman Catholicism
"The title and concept for the Roman papal office comes directly
from the pontifex maximus, originally employed to refer to the high
priest of the Roman paganism."-Particulars of Christianity:301
Roman Catholicism (part 9)
"pontifex maximus - highest priest of Roman religion and
official head of the college of pontifices. As the chief
administrator of religious affairs he regulated the conduct of
religious ceremonies, consecrated temples and other holy places,
and controlled the calendar. During the time of the empire, and
until Christianity became firmly established, the emperor was
designated pontifex maximus. After the supremacy of Christianity,
the popes assumed the title." - The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth
"So, while the idea of the pope is not to be found in the New
Testament scripture or other early Christian writing, it is quite
completely found in the high council of Roman paganism. All of the
elements of the Roman Catholic papacy can be traced directly to the
Roman pagan priests or pontifices and the high priest, the pontifex
maximus."-Particulars of Christianity:301 Roman Catholicism (part

"It is curious to note that most of the bodies that work these,
such as the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, Fresselor's, Rite,
the Sovereign Prince Masons etc,. are nearly all the offspring of
the Sons of Ignatius Loyola. The Baron Hundt, Chevalier Ramsay,
Tschoudy, Zinnendorf, and many others, who founded the grades of
these rites, worked under instructions from the General of the
Jesuits". - Helena Blavatsky, Isis Unveiled, 1875, p. 390.
"The great strength of our order lies in its concealment. Let it
never appear in any place in its own name, but always covered by
another name, and another occupation. None is fitter than the 3
lower degrees of Freemasonry; the public is accustomed to it,
expects little of it, and therefore takes little notice of it" -
Adam Weishaupt, founder of the Bavarian Illuminati 1873. Weishaupt
was a 'former' Jesuit and Professor of Canon Law at the Jesuit
Ingoldstadt University in Bavaria. The Jesuits had been suppressed
by the Pope in 1873 and by the Bavarian government and re-emerged
with this front group - the Illuminati. The founder of the Jesuits,
Augustus Loyola, was a member of the Spanish Illuminati, or
The Jesuits (Society of Jesus) were sanctioned by Pope Paul 111
in 1540 and were expelled from England (1581), France (1594),
Portugal (1598), England again (1604), France again (1606), Russia
(1717), Portugal again (1759), France again (1762), Spain, Genoa,
Venice and Sicily (1767), Naples, Malta and Parma (1768). The Order
was suppressed 21st July 1773 by Pope Clement IV for which he was
promptly poisoned and re-established by Pope Pius VII in 1814.
In the words of Abraham Lincoln:
" If the Protestants of the North and South could learn what the
priests, nuns and monks, who daily land on our shores, under the
pretext of preaching their religion, were doing in our schools and
hospitals, as emissaries of the Pope and the other despots of
Europe,, to undermine our institutions and alienate the hearts of
our people from our Constitution and our laws, and prepare a reign
of anarchy here, as they have done in Ireland, Spain, Mexico and
wherever there are people that wish to be free they would unite in
taking power out of their hands. The Jesuits never forsake".
In the words of John Adams, obviously he was not a Christian but
" I am not happy about the rebirth of the Jesuits. Swarms of
them will present themselves with more disguises ever taken by even
a chief of the Bohemians - as printers, writers, school teachers,
etc. If ever an association of people deserved eternal damnation,
on this earth and in hell, it is this Society of Loyola (1816).

THE JESUIT OATH
My son, heretofore you have been taught to act the dissembler:
among Roman Catholics to be a Roman Catholic, and to be a spy even
among your own brethren; to believe no man, to trust no man. Among
the Reformers, to be a Reformer; among the Huguenots, to be a
Huguenot; among the Calvinists, to be a Calvinist; among other
Protestants, generally to be a Protestant; and obtaining their
confidence, to seek even to preach from their pulpits, and to
denounce with all the vehemence in your nature our Holy Religion
and the Pope; and even to descend so low as to become a Jew among
Jews, that you might be enabled to gather together all information
for the benefit of your Order as a faithful soldier of the Pope.
You have been taught to plant insidiously the seeds of jealousy and
hatred between communities, provinces, states that were at peace,
and to incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war with
each other, and to create revolutions and civil wars in countries
that were independent and prosperous, cultivating the arts and the
sciences and enjoying the blessings of peace; to take sides with
the combatants and to act secretly with your brother Jesuit, who
might be engaged on the other side, but openly opposed to that with
which you might be connected, only that the Church might be the
gainer in the end, in the conditions fixed in the treaties for
peace and that the end justifies the means. You have been taught
your duty as a spy, to gather all statistics, facts and information
in your power from every source; to ingratiate yourself into the
confidence of the family circle of Protestants and heretics of
every class and character, as well as that of the merchant, the
banker, the lawyer, among the schools and universities, in
parliaments and legislatures, and the judiciaries and councils of
state, and to be all things to all men, for the Pope's sake, whose
servants we are unto death. You have received all your instructions
heretofore as a novice, a neophyte, and have served as co-adjurer,
confessor and priest, but you have not yet been invested with all
that is necessary to command in the Army of Loyola in the service
of the Pope. You must serve the proper time as the instrument and
executioner as directed by your superiors; for none can command
here who has not consecrated his labours with the blood of the
heretic; for "without the shedding of blood no man can be saved".
Therefore, to fit yourself for your work and make your own
salvation sure, you will, in addition to your former oath of
obedience to your order and allegiance to the Pope, repeat after
me: (Text of the Oath:) I_______________ , now in the presence of
Almighty God, the blessed Virgin Mary, the blessed St. John the
Baptist, the Holy Apostles, St. Peter and St. Paul, and all the
saints, sacred host of Heaven, and to you, my Ghostly Father, the
superior general of the Society of Jesus, founded by St. Ignatius
Loyola, in the pontification of Paul the Third, and continued to
the present, do by the womb of the Virgin, the matrix of God, and
the rod of Jesus Christ, declare and swear that His Holiness, the
Pope, is Christ's Vice-Regent and is the true and only head of the
Catholic or Universal Church throughout the earth; and that by the
virtue of the keys of binding and loosing given to His Holiness by
my Saviour, Jesus Christ, he hath power to depose heretical Kings,
Princes, States, Commonwealths, and Governments, and they may be
safely destroyed. Therefore to the utmost of my power I will defend
this doctrine and His Holiness's right and custom against all
usurpers of the heretical or Protestant authority whatever,
especially the Lutheran Church of Germany, Holland, Denmark, Sweden
and Norway, and the now pretended authority and Churches of England
and Scotland, and the branches of same now established in Ireland
and on the continent of America and elsewhere and all adherents in
regard that they may be usurped and heretical, opposing the sacred
Mother Church of Rome. I do now denounce and disown any allegiance
as due to any heretical king, prince or State, named Protestant or
Liberal, or obedience to any of their laws, magistrates or
officers. I do further declare the doctrine of the Churches of
England and Scotland of the Calvinists, Huguenots, and others of
the name of Protestants or Masons to be damnable, and they
themselves to be damned who will not forsake the same. I do further
declare that I will help, assist, and advise all or any of His
Holiness's agents, in any place where I should be, in Switzerland,
Germany, Holland, Ireland or America, or in any other kingdom or
territory I shall come to, and do my utmost to extirpate the
heretical Protestant or Masonic doctrines and to destroy all their
pretended powers, legal or otherwise. I do further promise and
declare that, notwithstanding, I am dispensed with to assume any
religion heretical for the propagation of the Mother Church's
interest; to keep secret and private all her agents' counsels from
time to time, as they entrust me, and not to divulge, directly or
indirectly, by word, writing or circumstances whatever; but to
execute all that should be proposed, given in charge, or discovered
unto me by you, my Ghostly Father, or any of this sacred order. I
do further promise and declare that I will have no opinion or will
of my own or any mental reservation whatever, even as a corpse or
cadaver (perinde ac cadaver), but will unhesitatingly obey each and
every command that I may receive from my superiors in the militia
of the Pope and of Jesus Christ. That I will go to any part of the
world whithersoever I may be sent, to the frozen regions north,
jungles of India, to the centres of civilisation of Europe, or to
the wild haunts of the barbarous savages of America without
murmuring or repining, and will be submissive in all things,
whatsoever is communicated to me. I do further promise and declare
that I will, when opportunity presents, make and wage relentless
war, secretly and openly, against all heretics, Protestants and
Masons, as I am directed to do, to extirpate them from the face of
the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex nor
condition, and that will hang, burn, waste, boil, flay, strangle,
and bury alive these infamous heretics; rip up the stomachs and
wombs of their women, and crush their infants' heads against the
walls in order to annihilate their execrable race. That when the
same cannot be done openly I will secretly use the poisonous cup,
the strangulation cord, the steel of the poniard, or the leaden
bullet, regardless of the honour, rank, dignity or authority of the
persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or
private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agents of
the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Father of the
Society of Jesus. In confirmation of which I hereby dedicate my
life, soul, and all corporal powers, and with the dagger which I
now receive I will subscribe my name written in my blood in
testimony thereof; and should I prove false, or weaken in my
determination, may my brethren and fellow soldiers of the militia
of the Pope cut off my hands and feet and my throat from ear to
ear, my belly be opened and sulphur burned therein with all the
punishment that can be inflicted upon me on earth, and my soul
shall be tortured by demons in eternal hell forever. That I will in
voting always vote for a Knight of Columbus in preference to a
Protestant, especially a Mason, and that I will leave my party so
to do; that if two Catholics are on the ticket I will satisfy
myself which is the better supporter of Mother Church and vote
accordingly. That I will not deal with or employ a Protestant if in
my power to deal with or employ a Catholic. That I will place
Catholic girls in Protestant families that a weekly report may be
made of the inner movements of the heretics. That I will provide
myself with arms and ammunition that I may be in readiness when the
word is passed, or I am commanded to defend the Church either as an
individual or with the militia of the Pope. All of which
I,_______________, do swear by the blessed Trinity and blessed
sacrament which I am now to receive to perform and on part to keep
this my oath. In testimony hereof, I take this most holy and
blessed sacrament of the Eucharist and witness the same further
with my name written with the point of this dagger dipped in my own
blood and seal in the face of this holy sacrament. (He receives the
wafer from the Superior and writes his name with the point of his
dagger dipped in his own blood taken from over his heart.)
(Superior speaks:) You will now rise to your feet and I will
instruct you in the Catechism necessary to make yourself known to
any member of the Society of Jesus belonging to this rank. In the
first place, you, as a Brother Jesuit, will with another mutually
make the ordinary sign of the cross as any ordinary Roman Catholic
would; then one crosses his wrists, the palms of his hands open,
and the other in answer crosses his feet, one above the other; the
first points with forefinger of the right hand to the centre of the
palm of the left, the other with the forefinger of the left hand
points to the centre of the palm of the right; the first then with
his right hand makes a circle around his head, touching it; the
other then with the forefinger of his left hand touches the left
side of his body just below his heart; the first then with his
right hand draws it across the throat of the other, and the latter
then with a dagger down the stomach and abdomen of the first. The
first then says Iustum; and the other answers Necar; the first
Reges; the other answers Impious. The first will then present a
small piece of paper folded in a peculiar manner, four times, which
the other will cut longitudinally and on opening the name Jesu will
be found written upon the head and arms of a cross three times. You
will then give and receive with him the following questions and
answers: From whither do you come? Answer: The Holy faith. Whom do
you serve? Answer: The Holy Father at Rome, the Pope, and the Roman
Catholic Church Universal throughout the world. Who commands you?
Answer: The Successor of St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the
Society of Jesus or the Soldiers of Jesus Christ. Who received you?
Answer: A venerable man in white hair. How? Answer: With a naked
dagger, I kneeling upon the cross beneath the banners of the Pope
and of our sacred order. Did you take an oath? Answer: I did, to
destroy heretics and their governments and rulers, and to spare
neither age, nor sex, nor condition; to be as a corpse without any
opinion or will of my own, but to implicitly obey my Superiors in
all things without hesitation or murmuring. Will you do that?
Answer: I will. How do you travel? Answer: In the bark of Peter the
fisherman. Whither do you travel? Answer: To the four quarters of
the globe. For what purpose? Answer: To obey the orders of my
General and Superiors and execute the will of the Pope and
faithfully fulfil the conditions of my oaths. Go ye, then, into all
the world and take possession of all lands in the name of the Pope.
He who will not accept him as the Vicar of Jesus and his
Vice-Regent on earth, let him be accursed and exterminated.

This golden child in the Vatican treasury, like so many other
images of the child in Roman Catholic churches, is reminiscent of
the ancient worship of Tammuz as a child. Born on Dec.25, he
represented the rebirth of the sun. As a pagan god-child, he was
called "Baal-berith," or lord of the fir-tree. The word "yule" is a
Babylonian word for infant. Dec.25 was called by the pagan
Anglo-Saxons, Yule Day.
Both the Egyptian and Persians celebrated the birthday of their
god on Dec.25th. Other names applied to the sun-god as a child are
Mithras, Horus, Isvara, Deoius, Jupiter, Plutus, Ninus, Osiris,
Dionysus, Bacchus, Iacchus, Adonis, Attis, etc. All myths of child
worship are a reflection of ancient Babylonian customs.
Mother or Mary-worship is the most powerful and emotional
phenomenon in the Roman Catholic Church today. This mystic cult is
given credence by the multitude of accounts about supernatural
phenomena involving statues, apparitions, and healings. Since
Mary-worship is found nowhere in the writings of the first
Christians, it is evident that its origin is found in the universal
adoration of the mother goddess all throughout paganism before the
time of Christ. It was adopted into the rising Roman Church early
in its history - some suggest after the 4th century A.D.
Mary, or a female figure representing the Roman Church, holds a
lightning bolt in her hand in precisely the same way as it is
carried by chief deities in the pagan mysteries.
The Greek goddess of wisdom and war, Athena, holds the serpent
crosier, symbol of power, representative also of the serpent or
King Tut, identified in death with Osiris the sun and god of the
dead,holds the crooked augur in his hand.
Serpent crosiers were commonly carried by bishops and high
Catholic Church officials during the Middle Ages. Although it is
claimed that the crosier represents the shepherd's crook, it
actually can be traced to the divining staff or augur of Pontifex
Maximus of ancient Rome who inherited it from the priests of
Webmaster's RemarkIt is unrealistic to assume that shepherds in
old times of nomadic existence would have been using wooden rods
with handles like the one shown above or anything like it. Common
sense would have been that they find something straight and not
something to entangle themselves with when having to fight off wild
animals. And thinking about plays representing Jesus' birth in
Bethlehem, it is absolutely disgusting to see shepherds hold staffs
other than straight wooden rods.
Symbol representing male and female union. Wavy lines portray
the female and were associated with the serpent, the straight line
is male, representing the phallus.
Adad, Enlil, Baal, Neptune, Poseidon and other 'gods' of storm
and sea were depicted as carrying tridents. It was symbolic of
lightning. Here Poseidon or Neptune, ruler of the sea or
underworld, holds the trident, traceable to the horned, hoofed
sun-god of Babylon, who carried the trident or pitchfork. The
trident is also a representation of the male-female symbol.

The trident projecting from the head of Jesus on a Roman
Catholic Madonna and child image. The same symbol is found on
clothing and regalia, architecture and art. Also notice the hand
how it is displayed with two fingers and thumb prominent, another
way of symbolizing the trident, a Satanic hand sign, symbolic of
occult powers, also used by high church officials & priests in
various blessings invoking the sign of the cross by motioning their
right hand with 2-fingers and thumb casually extended.

Here we see how each priest is wearing a fish-head mitre. One of
the names of this god in Babylon and Phylistia was Dagon (dag=fish,
on=sun). The most common ways of depicting Dagon are described by
the archaeologist Layard, "The Head of the fish formed the mitre
above that of a man, while its scaly, fish-like tail fell as a
cloak behind, leaving the human limbs and feet exposed." Layard's

The upper portion of the Nestorian Stone (Hsian monument),
discovered by Jesuit missionaries in 1625 AD in the province of
Shensi in China. The title of the stone reads, "A monument
commemorating the propagation of the Ta-Chin luminous religion
(Christianity) in the middle kingdom". The day of the stone's
erection was called, "ta vao shen wan ji," meaning, "the great
first of the Sabbath day". The use of Jewish terms for the days of
the week in the heart of China indicates the powerful influence of
the Nestorian Church in Asia.

The most honored of Japanese saints, Kobo Daishi, was deeply
impressed with Nestorian Christianity and incorporated some of its
tenets into his esoteric Buddhism, forming the new Shingon sect. In
Kobo Daishi's honor a duplicate of the Nestorian monument was

Clonmacnoise, one of the missionary schools of Columba
inIreland. Early Irish Christians observed the 7th-day Sabbath
andestablished colleges and monasteries throughout Ireland.
Chapel at Glendalough, south of Dublin, Ireland
The monastery complex, begun in the 6th Century, became one of
the intellectual centers of Ireland until 1214 AD. It seems to have
been customary in the Celtic churches of early times, in Ireland as
well as in Scotland, to keep Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath, as the
day of rest from labor.
Queen Margaret's Chapel in Edinburgh, Scotland
T. Ratcliffe Barnett, in his book on the fervent Catholic Queen
of Scotland who in 1060 was first to attempt the ruin of Columba's
brethren, writes, "In this matter the Scots had perhaps kept the
traditional usage of the ancient Irish church which observed
Saturday instead of Sunday as the day of rest." Barnett, Margaret
of Scotland, Queen and Saint, p.97.
Iona Abbey is a reconstruction of a 12th Century Benedictine
abbey, built on the spot of the old monastic school established by
the missionary Columba in 536 AD. The mission school continued to
function for over 600 years, sending missionaries throughout
Scotland, Wales, England and Europe. Columba and his monks followed
the Bible as their sole authority and observed the 7th-day as the
Grave of a "non-conformist" Baptist in a Welsh graveyard. Notice
the mention of the Second Coming. The Welsh Baptists were called
"non-conformists" because they were not connected with the Church
of England or the Papacy. Their ancestry is traceable to the
primitive church of Britain and Europe. Most had lost the 7th-day
Sabbath through the centuries of persecution. They laid a strong
foundation for the Baptist congregations of North America. Those
among them that kept the Sabbath became known as the 7th-day
St. Margaret's Chapel near Woodham Mortimer (Essex), location of
the tomb of Doctor Peter Chamberlen, a Puritan Sabbatarian, and the
physician to the royal families of England and Scotland. The
gravestone reads, "As for his religion, was a Christian keeping ye
commandments of God and faith of Jesus, being baptized about the
year 1648 and keeping ye 7th-day for the Sabbath above 32

Statue of Columbanus at Luxeuil, eastern France
Outstanding among the Sabbatarian Celtic missionaries to enter
Europe was Columbanus. He and fellow monks established their first
school in Anagray, France, at the invitation of King Guntram, the
ruler of Burgundy. Later he founded the school at Luxeuil.
Tomb of Columbanus in Bobbio, Italy. He died in 615 AD.
When Columbanus died, every branch of knowledge known in his day
was represented in his library. The school of Bobbio became the
intellectual center of northern Italy. His memory was so stamped
upon the history of the region that the Roman Church sainted him
despite her efforts to destroy him when he was alive.
The Church at St. Gallen in Switzerland
St. Gallus was a Celtic missionary and companion of Columbanus.
The 17th Century library at St. Gallen contains many old Celtic
manuscripts, including the 8th Century New Testament manuscripts
from the Itala translation of the Bible.
Interior of the St. Gallen Church
St. Gallus was one of the early Sabbath keeping Celtic
missionaries. He established the mission college of St. Gallen in
Switzerland. The school was later forcefully taken over by
Disentis, a community high in the Alps of southern
Switzerland,site of one of many Celtic Sabbatarian schools.

Castle of Trent
The City of Trent in northern Italy was the place where the
papal Council convened to break the power of the Protestant
Reformation. At the Council, dominated by the newly organized
Jesuit order, the bishop of Rheggio announced on January 18, 1562,
that the Protestants could never defend Sunday sacredness if they
continued to offer as their authority, "the Bible and the Bible
only, for there is no Bible command for the sanctification of
Sunday". The bishop claimed it was the power of the papacy that
changed the day of worship.

The Inquisition was established in Portugal by Ignatius Loyola,
the founder of the Jesuit order. Under the flags of the Portuguese,
the Jesuits spread the Inquisition to the Orient. In India they
established a bastille (fort with state prison) at Goa, forcing the
simple St. Thomas Christians to submit to the papacy. Francis
Xavier (1506-1552) was one of the first seven members of the
Society of Jesus. A roommate of Loyola, he was canonized by the
Roman Catholic Church on March 12,1622.
In this building in 1599, at the Synod of Diamper theSt. Thomas
Christians surrendered their faith to Catholicism.
On June 20, 1599, a disastrous synod was held at Diamper, India,
between the Roman Catholic representatives from Goa under the
archbishop Menezes and 600 St. Thomas Christian delegates headed by
the Syrian archdeacon George. Menezes promptly demanded that all
St. Thomas Christian delegates sign allegiance to the decrees and
doctrines of the Roman Church. The result was the destruction of
the heritage and history of the St. Thomas Christians.
"In the 17th Century the Jesuits influenced the Chinese calendar
and introduced a number of European inventions into the Chinese
culture. Some authors believe the Jesuits altered the inscription
on the Nestorian Stone in 1625 to make it appear that the
Nestorians held Catholic doctrines." Charles W. Wall, Ancient
Orthography of the Jews, Vol.2, p.160
Abraham Lincoln, elected to the presidency of the United States
in 1860, brought the country through the greatest crisis in its
history. The southern states wanted to separate from the Union and
retain slavery. That they had the backing of the Vatican is evident
from an examination of Civil War correspondence between Jefferson
Davis and Pope Pius IX. The resulting war caused the death of
thousands and tore the heart of the nation. Many private
conversations with Lincoln were preserved by Father Charles
Chiniquy in his book 50 Years in the Church of Rome, revealing
Lincoln's knowledge of Rome's involvement in the war. The records
of the court proceedings on the assassination of Lincoln prove he
was murdered by Roman Catholic conspirators, four of whom were
hanged for the crime in July 1865. John Surrat, one of the
masterminds of the plot, who escaped from the Ford Theater on the
night of April 14, 1865, was tracked by the State Department to
Canada, where he was sheltered by Catholic priests, from Canada to
London, where he was sheltered by priests in a Catholic rectory,
and from London to Rome. When finally caught, he was found in the
Pope's private army, from whence he was extradited to the United
States. Some suggest this is the best kept secret in America's
