Points to Ponder About

May 2006

Previous Month Next Month Archive

The purpose of Points to Ponder About was to stimulate thinking that would draw the disoriented Faithful back to God and away from the hypocritical duplicity of some religious institutions which are destroying the little faith left on earth. (For a more detailed explanation, see Points to Ponder About - Purpose). What used to be posted in this section has been integrated in For Your Information and Reference.

Note: This 'Point to Ponder About' section was prepared in the years 2005-2009. Some linked documents external to this domain may have been removed from the Net, or moved to different locations, since then.

On January 22, 2006, we ceased updating our Points to Ponder page. God has chosen that we start publishing it again for the benefit of those who have Eyes to See (2) and are now beginning to awake from their life long slumber. Since it is He Whom we strive to serve, we are resuming this page as of May 8th, 2006 - Mary, Mediatrix of All Graces.

Published on May 31st, 2006 - Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Do you wonder why.... so many Catholics seem to be always chasing the "latest Marian Apparition" and the "latest Messages from Heaven" when all that needs to be said has been said by Her, over and over again, yet precious few even bother to try to obey? If this is so painfully obvious to us, do they think that God does not notice?

Counting on the Mercy of God? Don't count on its unless you have exhausted every avenue that He has given each one of us to get and stay on the right path. His Mercy is for those who really try and for the innocent who, by no fault of their own, are in the dark about these matters. He even talks through dates-related-to-events and we continue to ignore Him. Humanity - wake up and smell the coffee before there is no more coffee left to smell!

Published on May 28th, 2006 - Alternate Day for Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord

Do you wonder why.... the European Union leaders did not include any mention about God in the European Constitution? Today's posting in our Public Forum will answer that question in full. But if it does not, maybe this or that document will.

Published on May 25th, 2006 - Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord

Do you wonder why.... two men wearing white garments asked those who witnessed the Ascension: "Ye men of Galilee, why stand you looking up to heaven?"

Because God wanted to inform mankind through those witnesses that: "This Jesus who is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come, as you have seen him going into heaven.", [Acts 1: 11-12] thus warning mankind about the manifestation of the False Christ at the End of These Times - just about now.

When Jesus returns to destroy the False Christ and his falsified Kingdom (the promised Golden Era) He will do so exactly as He did when He left, except, this time all of mankind will be able to witness His arrival regardless of where they may be. This is a feat that the falsifier will not be able to duplicate and why one of their main options is to exploit the appearance of a blood-line successor of Jesus. And you probably thought that The Da Vinci Code and its immense popularity was just another entertainment fad....

Published on May 21st, 2006 - Mary, Mother of Light

Do you wonder why.... if the Prophet Mohammed stated in the Qur'an (S. III 55) that God the Father said:

'Behold! God said: "O Jesus! I will take thee and raise thee to Myself and clear thee (of the falsehoods) of those who blaspheme; I will make those who follow Thee superior."'

and of Mary,

God the Father proclaims Mary perpetual virginity (S. XXI. 91):

"And (remember) Her who guarded Her chastity: We breathed into Her of Our Spirit, and We made Her and Her Son a Sign to all peoples."

The angels announce Her Immaculate Conception (S.III. 42):

"O Mary! God hath chosen thee and purified thee - chosen thee above the women of all nations."

Christians made an issue of persecuting anything related to Islam?

You may find the answer to that question and many other issues that may have puzzled you for years if review more of the basic teachings of the Qur'an and how they relate with Judaism and Christianity. Then, perhaps you will realize what is the price of following anyone blindly.

Published on May 19th, 2006

Do you wonder why.... such an attack has been mounted, openly by Opus Dei and less openly by the Roman Church at large, against the book and movie The Da Vinci Code, when the release, and heavy promotion by the mighty National Geographic Society, of the Gospel of Judas [which is far, far more damaging to the Christian Faith by demolishing, in essence, the whole New Testament] was met with complete indifference?

The "clue" to the answer may be found here for the reasons are almost exactly the same. "Almost" because, this time, the situation has all the signs of having been a "Staged Production".

Published on May 13th, 2006 - Anniversary of the First Apparition of Mary in Fátima

Considering the "Point to Ponder About" below (May 8th)... One wonders what really happened? Did God go back on one of His Fundamental Laws? Did the Scribe wrote down the wrong information? or Did Moses actually defied the same Laws he was so upset about others breaking?

In this "Holy 'Whodunnit'" the Faithful may immediately jump at the second choice because God does not go back on His Word and "God forbid that anyone imputes Moses (or any other Biblical character, for that matter) having made a mistake" (1) - But... "Scribe error"?? Then.... how many Scribe errors are in the Holy Scriptures? What can we then believe?

Not to worry.... as we have often repeated, when something does not look right in the Holy Scriptures let us go back to the Repository of Wisdom and we will shall find the answer - The Holy Scriptures themselves!

What if Moses made a mistake? David did, therefore, why Moses could not also make a serious mistake. [Do not forget what David did to Urias the Hethite to legalize his adultery. David had his loyal servant Urias murdered so that he could keep his wife! [2 Kings Ch. 10-12] ]

Therefore, let us check the possibility that Moses made a serious mistake. Scrolling down beyond Exodus 32:26-29 we read:

33 And the Lord answered him: He that hath sinned against me, him will I strike out of my book: 34 But go thou, and lead this people whither I have told thee: my angel shall go before thee. And I in the day of revenge will visit this sin also of theirs. 35 The Lord therefore struck the people for the guilt on occasion of the calf which Aaron had made. [Exodus 32:33-35]

Assuming that Moses erred, it appears that God completely ignored the value of Moses' settlement of the score by ordering "...let every man kill his brother, and friend, and neighbour...." since God clearly stated that He would dispense Justice in the future Himself.

We can almost be sure that Moses did not order what is being attributed to him in verses 26 through 29, once we read what is written immediately after verse 29:

30 And when the next day was come, Moses spoke to the people: You have sinned a very great sin: I will go up to the Lord, if by any means I may be able to entreat him for your crime. 31 And returning to the Lord, he said: I beseech thee: this people hath sinned a heinous sin, and they have made to themselves gods of gold: either forgive them this trespass, 32 Or if thou do not, strike me out of the book that thou hast written.

If Moses had indeed settled the score through "...let every man kill his brother, and friend, and neighbour....", why would he then go back and try to make amends with God and personally assume their sin at the expense of his eternal life.

This, brethren, is why the understanding of the Word of God necessitates the Illumination of the Holy Spirit of God. In this manner, even if a Scribe became creative with the Word of God in exchange of a few silver coins (2), the Faithful can quickly spot the problem and find the harmonious truth - all within the Inspired Word of God in the Holy Scriptures.

(1) A question remains - Was Moses less than perfect, a perfection man frequently ascribes to every Biblical character? We know that Moses, as all Biblical characters except Jesus and Mary, was not perfect, after all, in chapter 34 of Deuteronomy we read that "Moses seeth the promised land, but is not suffered to go into it." Specifically in Chapter 20 of Numbers we read:

12 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron: Because you have not believed me, to sanctify me before the children of Israel, you shall not bring these people into the land, which I will give them.

(2) As this seems to be the situation in this case.

Published on May 8th, 2006 - Feast of Mary, Mediatrix of All Graces

Do you ever wonder where... the religious leaders got the idea to murder anyone who did not believe as they taught?

When Moses came down from Mt: Sinai with the Tablets of the Law found Aaron leading the Chosen People in the adoration of a golden calf
he called out [Exodus 32:1-29]:

26 Then standing in the gate of the camp, he said: If any man be on the Lord's side let him join with me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him: 27 And he said to them: Thus saith the Lord God of Israel: Put every man his sword upon his thigh: go, and return from gate to gate through the midst of the camp, and let every man kill his brother, and friend, and neighbour. 28 And the sons of Levi did according to the words of Moses, and there were slain that day about three and twenty thousand men. 29 And Moses said: You have consecrated your hands this day to the Lord, every man in his son and in his brother, that a blessing may be given to you. [Exodus 32:26-29]

What makes this situation so interesting is that God had just given Moses the Tablets with the Commandments written by His Own Finger and one of those Commandments is "Thou shalt not kill." [Exodus 20:13 and Deut. 5:17]

A prohibition that God clearly had even established before the Commandments were given to Moses, i.e., when He condemned Cain [Genesis 4:15] and demonstrated by taking care of Egyptians Himself [Exodus Chs. 6 - 14]

We refer the reader to our documents on Biblical Literalism - Part I and Part II in order to better understand the above.
