Former Catholics have described their experience of participating in the weekly Sacrifice of the Mass as a "prison sentence" that was, for the most part, repetitious and boring. They remember attendance at the Mass as being a requirement to avoid committing a mortal sin and incurring the penalty of eternal damnation. The expression on the long, drawn faces of many Catholics during Mass revealed their lack of joy for having to be there. They were not there to worship God in spirit and truth but to fulfill the unbiblical laws of their religion. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC, para. 2180), "On Sundays and other holy days of obligation the faithful are bound to participate in the Mass." Why is this law so demanding? Why are Catholics compelled to participate in the mindless ritual of standing, sitting, kneeling and genuflecting as priests perform their religious duties? Why are Catholics not given the freedom to attend religious services out of love and adoration for their god? The answers are found in the deceptive dogmas of the Catholic Church.
Catholics must attend the weekly sacrifice of the Eucharist in order for the sins committed during the previous week to be forgiven. According to the Catechism, "The Eucharist is a sacrifice because it re-presents the sacrifice of the cross...the sacrifice of Christ and the sacrifice of the Eucharist are one single sacrifice: The victim is one and the same. In this divine sacrifice...the same Christ who offered himself once in a bloody manner on the altar of the cross is contained and is offered in an unbloody manner...this sacrifice is truly propitiatory" (CCC para. 1366,1367). In other words, Catholics are taught that divine justice (for their sins) is satisfied every time the Eucharist is offered to God.
Catholics are also taught that their redemption comes through the ongoing sacrifice of the Eucharist. "Every time this mystery is celebrated, the work of our redemption is carried on" (CCC, para. 1405). This blatantly denies the testimony of Scripture.
When Jesus ascended into heaven, He "entered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption" (Heb.).
Catholics are given no choice but to believe these deceptive teachings. If they deny the physical presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, they are condemned by their religion. "If anyone denies, that in the sacrament of the most Holy Eucharist, are contained truly, really and substantially the body and blood together with the soul and divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ, and consequently the whole Christ...let him be anathema" (Canon 1, Council of Trent).
Only the truth of God's Word can set Catholics free from religious bondage (John 8:31-32). "The God who is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in tabernacles made with hands; neither is He offered with human hands...the Divine Nature is not like gold, or silver or stone" (Acts 17:23-29). In other words, the divine nature of Christ is not like flour and water, or an image formed by the thoughts of ungodly men. The Lord Jesus Christ cannot be offered by the hands of sinful priests. Jesus Christ, the perfect High Priest, offered Himself, the perfect sacrifice, once for all sin for all time, to a perfect God who demands perfection. He then cried out in victory, "It is finished!" There are no more offerings for sin (Hebrews ). We must call our Catholic friends and loved ones to repentance and faith in the true Christ who must be worshipped in Spirit and truth (John ). It was through Christ's once-for-all death, burial and resurrection, divine justice was satisfied, redemption was paid, sins were forgiven, reconciliation was achieved, death was conquered, and salvation was secured for His people! What a glorious Savior!

Even as the Communist Chinese dictatorship ruthlessly oppresses the people of China while stepping up its aggressive rhetoric, espionage, and military activities aimed beyond its borders, the Obama administration has been training Beijing’s troops in U.S. military tactics, techniques, and procedures. Critics have long opposed the high-level “mil-mil cooperation” between the U.S. Armed Forces and one of the most brutal autocracies on the planet. At least one U.S. lawmaker has been expressing concerns. But the Obama administration, which boasts of its actions and has called for even deeper military ties with Beijing, shows no signs of backing down from the highly controversial and potentially dangerous programs.

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it is written, "He is the one who catches the wise in their craftiness"; and again, "The Lord knows the reasonings of the wise, that they are useless."

QUOTE: The EMU board of trustees passed a motion on November 16, 2013, to engage in a six-month listening process around hiring practices and covenanted same-sex relationships, beginning January 2014.
QUOTE: The president’s cabinet invited a wide range of constituents – including students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors, church leaders – to fill out survey forms giving their views on the hiring policy. “More than 7,000 people responded to our survey,” according to BJ Miller, director of institutional research. In addition, 20 “dialogue sessions,” including approximately 300 individuals on campus, were held. At least one president’s cabinet member was present at each session to listen and anonymously report perspectives to the rest of the cabinet. The president and cabinet members also engaged leaders across the church. “The listening process was extremely valuable in enabling the president’s cabinet to gain a deeper understanding of the range of feelings, hopes and fears about extending university employment to persons in same-sex covenanted relationships,”

TWO MENNONITE COLLEGES ALLOW EMPLOYMENT OF “MARRIED” HOMOSEXUALS

(Friday Church News Notes, July 31, 2015, firstname.lastname@example.org, 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “Two Mennonite Colleges,” Christian News Network, Jul. 22, 2015:
“Two American colleges that identify as Mennonite institutions have announced changes to their hiring policy to now allow the employment of homosexuals who have ‘wed’ their partners. Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) in Harrisonburg, Virginia and Goshen College in Goshen, Indiana announced the alterations on Monday, while claiming to still hold to the biblical principles as Christian schools. EMU’s decision followed a two-year ‘listening process’ to ‘review current hiring policies and practices with respect to individuals in same-sex relationships.’ ... On Monday, Board Chair Kay Brenneman Nussbaum and President Lauren Swartzendruber stated that they believed the compromise was satisfactory. ‘[EMU] is grounded in Mennonite/Anabaptist values, and we believe people in same-sex covenanted relationships are valued members of our learning community with equal rights to standard benefits,’ Nussbaum remarked in a statement. ... Goshen College made similar statements, remarking that there is a ‘diversity’ of opinions on whether or not biblical law prohibits sexuality between those of the same gender. ‘As an institution rooted in the Anabaptist tradition, we reaffirm our strong relationship to Mennonite Church USA, and recognize the diversity of interpretation of Scripture on this issue within our denomination and the broader Christian church, a diversity reflected within the board of directors and on our campus as well,’ said President James Brenneman.”
