Merchants in the Temple

The book 'Merchants in the Temple' was written by Gianluigi Nuzzi, an Italian journalist who lives in Milan. It was recently published in 2015. The writer had unprecedented access to Pope Francis and the book takes an investigative look at the recent financial scandals at the highest levels of the Vatican - the Curia. The Roman Curia is the administrative apparatus of the Vatican and the central body through which the Roman Pontiff conducts the affairs of the universal Catholic Church.

The book is based on confidential information, including top secret documents from inside the Vatican and actual transcripts of Pope Francis's admonishments to the papal court about the lack of financial oversight and responsibility.

The writer was aided by thousands of documents which had come from the butler of the previous pope Joseph Ratzinger (Benedict XVI), who resigned in 2013. The butler had been inspired to let the world know what was happening in the Vatican.

The book details the incredible waste of money by the men who govern the church and who are the real enemies of the cross of Christ, with the Pope as its head (Phil. 3:18). At their worst, these man engaged in wrongdoing that includes practices closely tied to religious life, such as the procedures for beatification and canonization, a marketplace in which millions of dollars changed hands.

The book also investigated the money flow that is sent to Rome from every diocese in the world, and is supposed to be used to bring relief to the poor, in fulfillment of the Church's pastoral mission. And where you may ask, do these donations go? The book reconstructs the facts and erases all doubts as to where the money trail ends.

When I heard about the book, I remembered that somewhere in our vast collection of entries on the Current Events page of our website and the numerous articles we had written, that after all the revelations about sexual abuse in the church, the biggest scandal had yet to be revealed and that it would involve the history of the Vatican Banking System and its illegal money laundering that for centuries had been hidden.

After a long search, I was eventually directed to an entry on the Current Events page from March, 2013, where we had mentioned this latest revelation.

The following is our response and comments to Gianluigi Nuzzi about his book. We copied most of the major News Networks in the USA and Canada along with the Religious Authorities in Nova Scotia, Canada, where we reside. Also copied were members of the Executive Staff of The Associated Press and The Canadian Press.

Subject: A World Deceived


Read your book 'Merchants in the Temple' and thank you for a book that confirms that the Roman Catholic Church is strictly a man-made Institution that was never founded by the Holy Spirit but rather the spirit and wisdom of man through which more than a billion people are being deceived. We invite you to read all the pages and articles listed on our website that you may learn that your reference to a so-called Holy Father, Holy See, etc. is not Holy at all but rather a lie.

The fact that you wrote a book that exposed the Corruption involving the Vatican Banking System is no coincidence, as the following is an excerpt of the entry 'Francis, open up the church' listed on the Current Events page of our website.

“Please note that the biggest scandal in the church is yet to be revealed and will involve the history of the Vatican Banking System and its handling of illegal money laundering that for centuries has been hidden, but as confirmed in the Word of God: there is nothing covered, that shall not been revealed; and hid, that shall not be known (Matthew 10:26).

The Vatican and the Catholic Church is a haven for sex perverts and all kinds of other abominations. The phenomenon of tens of thousands of church closures will continue and at even a faster rate in the future. The revelations of the misappropriation of funds and the illegal handling and laundering of money will eventually lead to the financial ruin of the church.”

It is interesting to note that the entry 'Francis, open up the church' was first published on our website in March, 2013, at a time when none of the information revealed in your book was publicly available. We invite you to read the complete entry and then ask yourself the question: How did we know? Did God reveal it to us, as He has with other content on this website (Gal. 1:11,12)?

The Vatican has already been exposed as 'The Mystery Babylon and the Mother of Harlots' spoken of in Revelation 17:5, and you can learn more by reading the article on our website. We also invite you to read the following articles.

On the Current Events page we invite you to read the entry 'Inquisition Torture Methods' and the many other entries that explain how and by whom the world has been deceived. 

We launched our website in 2005 to compliment our book 'A World Deceived'. It has been the number one Listing on Google out of millions of results along with a number of our articles. It was visited last month by people from over 60 countries. So far this month Italy is listed as the tenth country in terms of the number of visitations to our website. We have ministered to the people of this world for thirty years and there are those that will attest that our message of Repentance is according to the Spirit of truth (John 14:17) and that the Gospel we preach is the same Gospel as it was preached by Christ and the Apostles.

Gal. 1:11,12. The gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

It is our hope that all mankind come unto the knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:4) and we would appreciate it if you forward this email to your family and friends and bring as many people to our website as you possibly can. We thank you in advance for your effort.

The purpose of our website is to show mankind how and by whom they have been deceived as confirmed in Revelation 12:9 and to show them what they must do to return to the only true and living God.

On top of every page of our website we display a Header that displays the Natural Body vs the Spiritual Body as spoken of in 1 Cor. 15:44 and as explained in the article listed on our website. It further depicts the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. In this case a Tree refers to a person. You can read more about this in the article 'Who is God and who is Satan?' listed on our website.

In nature, entropy will always prevail.

Entropy: A process of degeneration with increasing certainty, chaos, etc., specifically, when regarded as the final stage of a social system (Religions, Political Systems, Medical Profession, Judicial Systems, Media Industry, the Environment, etc.).

Also, each time we add new items to the Current Events page or add a new article to our website, we send a notice out to thousands of media outlets, media personalities, religious and political leaders and other contacts in the USA, Canada, the UK and Western Europe. Our communication has included senior contacts at the World Health Organization, the United Nations, Barack Obama, Justin Trudeau (Prime Minister of Canada), etc., etc.

After you have had a chance to review all the pages and articles of our website, we would look forward to answer any questions you may have. We also look forward to working with your in bringing our message according to the Spirit of truth to this present world (John 14:17) and expose all the deceitful workers and all those that refrain from bringing the truth to the people.

Seek, and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7).

In His Service.
