Strong words. Paul says here, if even he, Paul himself, preaches a new gospel, we should let him be anathema. Even if an angel of God preaches a new gospel, we should let him be anathema.
And what does anathema mean?
Accursed, loathed, despised and shunned. Excommunicated, driven out and Banished from our company. To be avoided at all cost and kept apart from.
Don't look now, but Fr. Martin Luther preached a new gospel. Fr. John Calvin preached a new gospel; Fr. Ulrich Zwingly preached a new gospel. Every Protestant denomination preaches a new gospel, inspired by man, modifying if not replacing the original gospel inspired by God.
The Book of Mormon is a new gospel. The Koran is a new gospel. The New World Translation of the Bible is a new gospel.
In the Fracturing of Christianity we saw how the Protestant Reformation brought about the radical combination of Church and State all across Europe.
It was in the founding, the Declaring and the Constituting of the United States that the proper separation between ecclesial and secular ruling authority was reestablished. Atheistic enemies of God unconstitutionally and illegally established a Separation of Church and State principle by which they could "secularize" or religiously cleans America of Christianity and proper faith in God, but that "principle" stands on shaky ground, awaiting being stricken down.
What the secularizers promote is not a new gospel, but a "no gospel", and a no god, and a no self-revelation of God to man. They deny it all, and they seek to impose that denial upon all of mankind.
The evil militant atheists, secularists and secularizers aside, Christian America mimics the condition in the holy land when Christ was incarnate. Jesus was not loathe to enter Samaria, and to speak with the Samaritan woman at the well. His gospel was for all men. Samaritans were banned from Jewish worship, but not from secular society. Jews and Samaritans lived as neighbors, not as enemies, no matter how severely they opposed each other religiously.
And so it is in America. Those who preach a new gospel are not banned from the land, but from the sacramental life in the one Church of the one true gospel. They are our neighbors. We shun them religiously, but not in the world of neighbors outside the one true Church.
But what about the new gospels being preached from the mouths of ordained clerics, from inside the one true Church?
Bishop Robert Barron preaches a new gospel regarding heaven and hell.
Fr. James Martin preaches a new gospel blessing homosexuality.
Cardinal Kaspar preaches a new gospel regarding marriage.
Pope Francis preaches new gospels of liberation theology, collective salvation, equality of stuff rather than equality before God, and an all inclusive theology and ecclesiology.
What are we to make of this, and where are we to go for truth?
Go to the Creeds, and to Credal Faith. Go to the original and unchanged Bible. The Church will correct herself as she has done in the past. Have faith in the original gospel, and pray for the correction.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Print, sign and send The Letter, and make our Church Catholic again.
Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.
With fear and trembling, work out your salvation--Phil 2:12
Seek the Truth; Find the Way; Live the Life.
Please God, and Live Forever.

Date: Mon Nov 18 2019
From: Vic Biorseth
Bishop Barron teaches that there is every possibility that there is no one in hell, in direct opposition to the teaching of Jesus Christ.

A Priest of Jesus Christ, who was to me a very Holy man, responded to my frustration with the Church thus: “My friend, the Church inhales and exhales in Millenia. The Church is like this because it reflects the never changing teachings of Our Lord.”
We discussed many things over the years about The Church which are germane to this idea of the “living, changeable, often obsolete “understanding” of application of the Gospel due to changes in society..” within families, the Church, then the world. Christ never changes. We read in the correct Bible, that nothing of the Gospel can be removed or added to... Today we are faced with the gospel of Francis christ as he is destroying the administration of the Church though his new praise and glorification of “Mother Earth” and pachamama, yet another idol.
The new “reformation” begun with the mentally unstable Luther, the administration is well underway in fashioning the Church into the image of the god of this world. That image, destruction of God’s creation of Man “into satans own image”. The “one world government” ok’ Bergolinio wants will be very bad.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
