Editor's note: It should be noted up-front that the information presented below is the studied opinion of Eric Jon Phelps. We here at
find much about his presentation of his historical research which meshes with and expands upon Truth which has been presented by many other authors in these pages and elsewhere. And that is good; Truth is Truth is Truth, and should all mesh.
However, for the peace of mind of our unique readership--which typically has cultivated a more aware spiritual perspective than the general public--we do not want to give the impression that we agree with (or wish to promote) some collateral aspects of Eric's presentation having to do with his personal "religious" convictions. The focus of those convictions follows a much more biblically conventional (literal) path--in stark contrast to the unconventional, questioning, wide-angle vision of his historical material.
Generally such opinions are simply allowed to stand on their own--for you to sort and interpret as you see fit--rather than being singled-out to be addressed editorially.However, in this case, the practical side of Eric's stated religious convictions include the condoning of some degree of violence (or violent protest) and use of armaments.And such convictions are very much the opposite of our philosophical position--for many reasons, not the least of which is the obvious Adversarial bait-and-entrapment which would result from choosing what we would consider to be low-frequency responses to schoolroom Earth's current challenges.
Yet, if the perceptive reader penetrates "between the lines" thoughtfully, there is glimpsed a recurring commendable spiritual message in Eric's commentary--of "Have the courage to speak The Truth" and "God helps those who help themselves"--which we certainly DO agree with wholeheartedly and have long supported enthusiastically.
We are in the time of the Great Awakening on this planet. The Light of Truth,intensifying with each passing moment, is nudging many to step forward and share what they know. Will such ones follow that nudge or continue to hide in fear? The answer to that question is perhaps the most important aspect of schoolroom Earth's relentless testing at this critical time.
One last-minute footnote before beginning this interview: The Arts & Entertainment (A&E) cable television channel just started to air--on Easter Sunday evening!--a new two-hour documentary called:
The Vatican Revealed
. Tape it so you can study it carefully; within the lines of dialog and some of those people chosen for commentaries are many, many clues to the true power of the Vatican over world affairs. It would, of course, be much more revealing to watch the A&E program AFTER having read and digested the following.
Before we begin, let me say a few words. The topic of your book is socomprehensive and covers, literally, all aspects of global control by the Jesuits, datingback to 1540. I would like to begin our conversation with a very important point ofclarification so that our readers have something to hold onto while reading the
