HANDWRITING ON THE WALL!!
With the increasing allegations of sexual abuses of children by Catholic priests, it becomes evident that the moral situation in the world is getting worse. What do you do when those you look up to as role models become the villains? Or when those who are supposed to be protecting you are the ones exploiting and abusing you? The resignation of the Irish Bishop over cover ups of sexual abuses of children by priests only follow the announcement by the BBC in March 2009, of the payment by the Catholic church in America alone the astronomical sum of more than 430 million dollars in 2008 to settle victims of sexual abuses by its priests. In recent days, more and more graphic cases are being unveiled. These only come to fulfill scriptures that declare the increase in moral decadence and the departure from sound doctrine in these last days. "Now the Spirit expressly says that in the latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and the doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their consciences seared with a hot iron, forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth" (1 Timothy 4:1-3). With the heinous sins of child abuse in the West and rampant adulteries in the developing world, one begins to wonder if the so called doctrine of celibacy by priests is not just a cloak to cover malicious schemes. And when mere humans adopt for themselves divine titles like: "His Holiness," or "His Lordship," and also claim for themselves divine attributes as "Infallibility," it becomes apparent how they can get themselves entangled in their own pride and devices. Celibacy is an individual choice. But when it is made a doctrine and conditionality into Christian ministry, it becomes a heresy. To change then becomes seemingly difficult because it would entail dismantling an established order. But is that not what humility demands? Is repentance not the ability to recognize one's errors and turn away from them? But when this is difficult or improbable, it is an immediate sign that divine justice shall finally take its course. There is no compromise on God’s part for those who consciously indulge in sin, especially such abominable sins of blood. To those who have the fear of God in such compromising institutions, the handwriting on the wall is clear for all to read. God's voice is clear to you on this issue: "Come out of her my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive her plaques" (Rev. 18:4).
