In an investigation recently spanning 21 countries across six continents, The Associated Press found thirty cases of priests accused of abuse were transferred or moved abroad. Some escaped police investigations. Many had access to children in another country, and some abused again.
Somewhere this past weekend I heard or read about three Brazilian priests who had been charged with crimes of sexual abuse. When I typed in "Brazilian priests charged with abuse" on Google today (05-03-10), it provided me with 345,000 results and the horrific details of a history of sexual abuse in Brazil.
Yesterday on May 2, 2010, CNN reported another scandal, this time involving a Catholic order by the name of the Legion of Christ (not related to the true Christ). For further details we have listed the report on this website under the article Pope's envoy to run discredited Catholic order.
For almost thirty years mankind has become totally desensitized over daily reports of sexual abuse in the churches, while one should not forget the very important significance all of these revelations have had on past and current world history.
In summary it confirms and has exposed (unmasked) the Mother of Harlots as spoken of in Revelation 17:5. For more information on the Mother of Harlots and the offspring of other harlots, we invite you to read the articles The Mystery Babylon and Popes and the Princes of This World listed on this website.
Recently the Catholic Church has decided to put the Shroud of Turin on display again and over a period of six weeks two million people are expected to view the linen, bearing the faded image of a bearded man. The shroud was discovered in the French city of Troyes in the mid-14th century. Carbon dating in 1988 claimed the image of the man could not be that of Jesus because the shroud was medieval.
The answer is a lot closer at hand as the Bible itself explains how it is a fake. In the days of Christ it was the tradition that two cloths were used for burial purposes. One was used for the body and one, referred to as a napkin, was used for the head.
The following is an excerpt from the article Shroud of Turin a Hoax listed on this website.
Turning to John 11:44 we read the following: "And he (Lazarus) that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes; and his face was bound about with a napkin." The word napkin comes from the Greek word "soudarion" which is a sweat cloth or towel used for wiping perspiration from the face or for binding the face of a corpse. We see here clearly that a separate cloth was used for the face.
When we read John 20: 6-7 we read the following; "Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, and the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself." We clearly see here that, not only was a separate cloth used for Christ's head, but that it was even placed in a different location.
This confirms that the Shroud of Turin - a single cloth measuring 14 feet, 3 inches by 3 feet, 7 inches, believed to have been used for the burial of Jesus Christ and bearing his features - is a hoax.
To all those that have not had an opportunity to read the whole article we invite you to do so. The Bible is true in all things, even when it records in Revelation 12:9 that the whole world has been deceived. All of this, we have attempted to explain on this website and in the book A World Deceived.
