Celibacy a man-made doctrine

A heresy is an opinion or doctrine contrary to the dogma of the Word of God and the true church. These various traditions have been inserted into religion during the last two thousand years and have no part in the doctrines and teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Word of God.

Celibacy is only one of them. It is a man-made doctrine and was decreed by Pope Hildebrand Gregory VII in the year 1079 AD. Jesus never imposed such rules nor did any of the apostles. On the contrary, Peter was married and Paul states that bishops were to have one wife and could have children (Matthew 8:14,15; 1 Timothy 3:5,12).

The apostle Paul prophesied about this unnatural behavior to his son Timothy two thousand years ago as recorded in 2 Timothy 4:1-3. It should be noted that the prophecy by the apostle Paul was a thousand years before celibacy was decreed as an official doctrine of the church.

"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times (since Christ) some shall depart form the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth."

The Voice of the People is a regular section of our local paper The Chronicle Herald and allows people to express their opinions in response to newspaper articles. However, the opinions are strictly monitored and controlled by the paper. For a better understanding how the media controls public opinion, we invite you to read the article 'Influence of the Media' listed on this website.

We wrote to the paper and the Voice of the People on three different occasions in response to an article they published by The Associated Press saying: that the Pope denounced those who want to ordain woman and abolish celibacy. Well, as you may have surmised, they refused to print anything that concerns the Spirit of truth (John 14:17), as they continue to defend and advocate everything with respect to the falsehood of religion, politics, the collapse of the medical profession, etc., etc.

Even though things can be clearly seen and are easy to understand, the media continues to cover up the lies and falsehood of church doctrines, in order to protect the church and its authorities in all its deceitfulness.

We even copied Mr. Mark Lever, President and CEO of The Chronicle Herald, along with senior members of his staff, including his wife Sarah Dennis, the Chairman and Publisher. We also copied Peter Mansbridge and Anna Maria Tremonti from the CBC, Steve Murphy, Executive News Editor and Anchor for CTV News, Jay Witherbee, Director of Communications and Public Relations at Dalhousie University, along with the writers of the Associated Press that had written the article.

History has already proven that the Roman Catholic Church is the Mystery Babylon and the Mother of Harlots as spoken of in Revelation 17:5 and explained in the articles 'The Mystery Babylon' and 'Popes and the Princes of This World' listed on this website. The killings of millions of people during the time of the Inquisition, is only a small part of the troubled history of the church (Revelation 17:6).

The doctrine of celibacy has proven to be the deep-rooted cause of sexual abuse in the church for more than a thousand years and since all the revelations during the last thirty years (Matthew 10:26), this same doctrine has now resulted in their own self-destruction. It has been the major cause of church closures throughout the world and the eventual collapse of the church is inevitable.

A full listing of heresies and false doctrines of the church can be found in the article 'The Mystery Babylon'.

All of the other pages and articles listed on this website speak of God's judgment and explain how and by whom this whole world has been deceived as confirmed in Revelation 12:9.
