This is the 67. Chapter of "The Man-Made Church"


67. Vatican


by Frank L. Preuss


Today on the seventh of June I read the following:

This Day in History

June 07, 1929: Lateran Treaty ratified.

Through the Lateran Treaty – signed February 11, 1929, by Benito Mussolini for Italy and by Pietro Gasparri, cardinal secretary of state, for the papacy and ratified this day in 1929 – Vatican City became a sovereign state.

Now this was a historical event and we want to have a look at the probably first document still in existence about this papacy in the city of Rome.

Now follows an extract from Paul’s letter to the Romans:

Rom 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

Rom 16:18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

Rom 16:19 For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.

Rom 16:20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

The main aspect of the man-made church is that it causes division.

It divides the body of Christ into groups, into denominations, into sects.

Orthodoxy is that what they call themselves.

This causing of division is the first item Paul mentions.

And then follows immediately the second. They cause offences contrary to the doctrine.

These two always go hand in hand. These dividers also always teach false doctrine, it cannot be separated, because the first false teaching is always that they teach people to become members of their divisive religious organisation.

And the third item of Paul is his command: Avoid them. Keep away from them.

A so-called Christian who belongs to a denomination violates this command: Avoid denominations.

And that is not the only command in the Bible that tells us to have nothing to do with such dividers.

The most impressive of these commands is the one of Jesus in Revelation.

Rev 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

Rev 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

Rev 18:4 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.

Rev 18:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

Here we have a reason why so many, so-called, Christians, are sick. They are sick because they do not come out of their denomination. This agrees with what Paul says in 1 Corinthians 11:30, For this cause many are weak and sickly among you. This comes from that book of the Bible that very particularly deals with such dividers, 1 Corinthians.

Jesus calls Orthodoxy, the Catholic Church and all the other religious organizations that adhere to this system of the clerics, Babylon the great, or in Revelations 17:5 Mystery, Babylon the great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth.

And then Paul carries on and tells us that they are not Christians, they are not servants of Christ, and then he says what they really are. They are materialists. They serve their belly. They serve their own appetites.

And then comes a very good description of their whole approach to people: by good words and fair speeches they deceive the hearts of the simple.

By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naïve people.

And then Paul tells us what real Christians are like: they are obedient, wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.

And then comes Paul’s prophecy about Orthodoxy: the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly.

This prophecy of Paul agrees with Jesus’ prophecy in Revelation.

The papal system, Satan, shall be bruised by God under our feet.

At the top of the papal system is the pope and when one listens to what he has to say then this description of Paul is just right: by good words and fair speeches they deceive the hearts of the simple.

The word adultery in Revelation 19:2, "the great prostitute who corrupted the earth by her adulteries," actually means being disloyal to God, breaking the union with God.

But this century has now revealed that the whoring of the great whore and her fornication also has a direct meaning regarding sexual immorality. This century now revealed that the clerics are people who rape children on a large scale and are homosexuals on a large scale. See 2013 Dec 28 – The Catholic Church – the community of gays.

So this Vatican business was already in full swing when Paul wrote his letter to the Romans, probably in the year 56 or so after Christ, before even Paul visited Rome on that visit of his that is recorded in the Bible.

In the verses Romans 16:3 to Romans 16:15 Paul lists 26 persons whom he greets, from Priscilla and Aquila to Olympus, and with all of these 26 people in Rome Paul seems to have had a personal relationship and knew them personally, and was probably in contact with them and therefore had good knowledge of what was going on in that city.

The church of Satan therefore existed basically already at a time that was concurrent with the existence of the earliest churches, real churches.

Only with this information on this webpage one will be in the position to really understand church history. The true church and the man-made church existed right from the beginning and right from the beginning they stood in complete oppositions to each other. Exactly like the conflict of God to Satan.

And that is real church history, rightly documented in the Bible itself.

And this agrees with our experience of today. Whenever a group of real believers comes together, already at the first meeting, those emerge who are wolfs in sheep clothing, who want to draw away disciples after them, those grievous wolves.
