Roman Catholic Church
Origins of the word Catholic, its Greek, katholikos meaning universal/relating to all men
-> Late latin (catholicus) /old french (catholique) -> late middle english (catholic)
Universal: of, affecting, or done by all people or things in the world or in a particular group; applicable to all cases. If used as a noun: a person or thing having universal effect, currency, or application, in particular. As was discussed in the section Who is the Illuminati, we differentiate between a few of the 'terms' that are used interchangeably amoungst this supposed secret organization. But in this topic, we will explore the source of the Roman Catholic church and why it is the mother of secular organized religion, and just how it has applied itself universally in all aspects of human life collectively in the respect of government, politics, war, strife and human suffering all in the name of religion and God, while exposing the TRUE god in which they serve - and not the true God of the universe, heavens and earth.
What is the RCC where did it come from?
The Roman Catholic Church was headed by Emperor Constantine roundabout 300 A.D. making the religion for the roman empire. It's considered to be the 'mother' church as it has inspired and influenced many religious organizations and churches (daughters). This is why it is referred to the mother harlot or whore, and the spin offs considered 'daughters'. The 'church' is used in the bible to represent God's people as a whole scattered throughout the earth, those who love and worship him with their heart and soul and follow his commandments, the 'church' is also represented in the analogy of a bride. Traditional brides are pure (virgins) for their husbands. God calls his church his bride, as we are to be spiritually pure and not defiled with false teachings/religions.
The mystery of iniquities
Iniquities are the transgressions of the law. In 2 Thessalonians, Paul is addressing the coming deception however he states that the corruption was already at work. Again Paul addresses these issues of corruption in 1 Timothy 4. Eventually these false doctrines become traditions over time and no one questions where they came from or why we observe them. These are the mysteries of iniquities, traditions and doctrines of false origin that have slipped in and corrupted the Church (all people whom believe in Christ) into religions. That is why there are so many different 'types' of churches and religions, they have gone off the path of truth (word of God) and have let others or traditions become their 'law', they have moved away from God's law.
The great apostasy was the corruption of the real
church (body of believers of Christ spread throughout the earth) of Jesus by Rome and her popes who wanted the power and influence (greed) that you can see they have had throughout history in forms of political and religious control. While it can be difficult to pinpoint the exact starting point and whom involved, it can be assured that it was a process
and the RCC has had the most historic influence. You will find a decline in the church to its present fallen state throughout history recordings. The church became a whore, specifically the whore of babylon.
To get the pagans to come to church, the RCC began incorporating the pagan festivals with the church such as Easter/Ishtar, for example. Other pagan practices and occult teachings were introduced, such as sun worship order known as the Sol Invictus (Sol = Sun/5 tone scale) (Invictus = unconquered), sun cult Mithra-ism*
. Interesting too that the day of worship is on Sun
day, when it is biblically Saturday. (See also: Sunday Worship
, Easter )
Vicar of Christ
The title of the pope is the Vicar of Christ, which in definition means the replacement/representative of Christ (the King). We can easily read in the bible that the only way to the father, is through the Son. Not through a man, or a representative of Christ- but Christ himself.
1A vicar (/ˈvɪkər/; Latin: vicarius) is a representative, deputy or substitute; anyone acting "in the person of" or agent for a superior (compare "vicarious" in the sense of "at second hand"). Linguistically, vicar is cognate with the English prefix "vice," similarly meaning "deputy." The title appears in a number of Christian ecclesiastical contexts, but also as an administrative title, or title modifier, in the Roman Empire. In addition, in the Holy Roman Empire a local representative of the emperor, perhaps an archduke, might be styled "vicar."
2A viceroy /ˈvaɪs.rɔɪ/ is a regal official who runs a country, colony, or city province (or state) in the name of and as representative of the monarch. The term derives from the Latin prefix vice-, meaning "in the place of" and the French word roi, meaning king.
