Argentine Diocese Posts, Then Deletes, ‘Prayer to Pachamama’

Argentine Catholic diocese apologizes for prayer to Pachamama

What’s with our churches? Did someone tell them God now blesses idolatry?

A Catholic diocese in Argentina recently posted on its website a “Prayer to Pachamama,” a pagan “goddess” worshiped in the Andes ( They deleted it Aug. 3 and “apologized” for putting it there in the first place… after multitudes of Catholics objected.

Hey, c’mon, chill out! sez the Vatican. It’s not really idol worship! It’s spiritual, man. And it’s sort of kind of like the Virgin Mary.

Meanwhile there are plenty of Protestant seminaries–and churches–teaching goddess worship and “feminist theology,” whatever that is  We Protestants have even got “Clergy For Choice,” evangelizing for abortion. We live in a glass house, so let’s not throw stones.

An image of Pachamama was brought into the Vatican in 2019 as part of–oh, I don’t know! Some angry Catholics brought it back out and tossed it into the Tiber. The Vatican rescued the idol from the river and the Red Pope apologized for the brusque behavior.

There is no room in any Christian denomination for a pagan goddess.

I am not sure Church leaders understand this.


Why Don’t They Just Throw Out the Bible?

The writing on the wall has not been erased.

As long as the U.S. bishops are going to get together tomorrow to discuss “Eucharistic coherence,” they might want to consider the Eucharistic incoherence being practiced at Our Lady of Grace Church in Hoboken, NJ (

For the fourth year in a row, this alleged church is going to hold a “pride mass” to celebrate sodomy. Take pride in something that God’s word calls a sin. For three years in a row the American bishops pretended such things weren’t happening. Ditto the goings-on at so-called “Catholic” colleges: they ignored those, too.

Please don’t take this post as Catholic-bashing. If there weren’t faithful Christians in the Church trying to hang on to truth and righteousness, there’d be no controversy, no debate. There are many Catholics who must feel like Lot in Sodom.

This is open, flagrant defiance of God’s law.

Remember us, O Lord, that we never gave consent to this.


‘Re-Interrogate’ the Scripture?

Flip Wilson Show - The Church Of What's Happening Now | Flip wilson, Funny  people, About time movie

Flip Wilson’s Church of What’s Happening Now

I learned a new word yesterday–and me a writer and all!

“Re-interrogate.” As in the Bishops of the Church in Wales declaring that “the teachings of Scripture should therefore be re-interrogated” (–to allow the church to bless same-sex “civil partnerships.”

Flip Wilson used to make a lot of people laugh with his “Church of What’s Happening Now.” In real life it’s not so funny.

Their reasoning, if you want to call it that, is that although the Bible does seem to favor marriage between one man and one woman, it also gives “tacit approval” to assorted forms of polygamy–and therefore the one man-one woman model need not be taken very seriously.  And we are told that a “new social, scientific, and psychological understanding of sexuality” needs to be brought into play.

Like I said, “the Church of What’s Happening Now.”

‘The Whole Damned Package’ (2014)

Clergy my eye

In 2014 the Presbyterian Church USA went over to the dark side. They’re still wondering why people are fleeing to other churches.

The Whole Damned Package

The question I had, and still have, was, Why does all this stuff always seem to go together? Where you’ve got “gay clergy,” you’re also sure to find phony “climate change,” abortion-loving, Big Government-worshiping, full-blown apostasy. It never fails.

There wasn’t really a “trans” movement yet, as early as 2014, so the PCUSA wasn’t able to endorse it at the time. I’d have to look it up, but just offhand, I’d say chances are about 99.99% that they have by now.

“Clergy” whooping it up for abortion

Be thankful for churches that have refused to go over to the dark side–as the Presbyterian Church USA did, by formal vote, five years ago.

The Whole Damned Package

Well, Paul did warn us that there would be a great falling-away from the truth, before Christ returns. If this isn’t the kind of thing he was talking about… what is?

Rejoice in faithful churches.


Church of Norway ‘Apologizes’ for Having Been Pro-Life

See the source image

It looks nice, but looks aren’t everything.

And another “church” bites the dust…

The Bishops of the Church of Norway–70% of the people in Norway belong to that church–have issued a statement apologizing for having been pro-life ( No, it’s not a satire. They really did it.

Yup, the bishops regret ever having opposed abortion and are now for it–because abortion, they say, is necessary for “women’s health, safety, and security.” There’s that “women’s health” thing again. For good measure, they have added another “We are sorry” for not having given sufficient support to all the rest of feminism.

They’re going to be even sorrier when Christ returns to judge the quick and the dead.

But apostate churches, churches that go along to get along, churches that covet the approval of a fallen world–these have always been with us. The true Church is Christ’s people, in all denominations, who are faithful to Him and keep His testimony.

That is the Church that will endure.

Maybe They Don’t Want to be Rescued

See the source image

Can your idol do this?

I just posted a worship song called Rescuer: Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is our rescuer. That’s what the good news of the gospel is all about. We’re not stuck in this tar pit. We are not abandoned to the darkness.

If there’s no Jesus, there’s only this nightmare of a world-wide fornication theme park with its sideshows of violence and tyranny, run by know-it-alls who would crush you like a bug and not think about it even once.

Oh, not so! insists Michael Waldrond Jr., pastor of a megachurch in Harlem. In fact, says the pastor, believing that Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven is–ahem!–“insanity” ( “That is not what Jesus even believed,” says he.

Oh, really? What did Jesus believe? Let’s ask Him.

“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me.” (John 14:6)

Well, bub, it looks like the Lord would disagree with you there. Waldrond’s congregation certainly does. Reportedly, the congregation is “outraged.” A noozie complains, “They sound like Trump supporters.” I think the nooze media is one of those things that Jesus will rescue us from.

So you can believe the gospel, which tells us that we have a rescuer and His name is Jesus Christ the Lord, the Son of God; or you can believe the humanists, who tell us they’re the rescuers–and then you can laugh yourself sick: that, or loudly lament and rend your garment–or you can believe some apostate preacher who tells you that any ol’ thing you believe in will get you into Heaven.

In which case, reverend, why is anybody wasting a perfectly good Sunday morning sitting in your church?


Another Apostate Church

See the source image

A robin tends her eggs. I could not bring myself to post the photo that actually went with this news story. God’s stuff works. Ours, increasingly, doesn’t.

Let all things be done decently and in order.   –St. Paul, I Corinthians 14:40

The Church of Scotland has thrown this verse out the window, deeming the Holy Bible as written “very patriarchal” (oh, please) and sorely in need of a “21st century update” (

Another verse they have a problem with is Genesis 1:27, “Male and female created He them.” See, they just got this little 30-page booklet–a substitute for Scripture–that tells ’em all about embracing transgenderism and helping Satan to sell it. Okay, it doesn’t admit to helping Satan. But that’s what it is.

As one Church of Scotland bigwig says, “Some men have vaginas and some women have penises.” This is wicked nonsense spoken in God’s name. It is a serious sin.

And so another church bites the dust–on purpose, with its eyes open.

O Lord Our God! Remember, please remember, that these things are done without our consent, against our will, and over our objections. Grant this erring and rebellious church a spirit of repentance, before it’s too late. And protect us from the evil that has infected such churches. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

More Bad News: Church of England Takes a Dive

Well, here we go–the Church of England has ordered its 4,700 schools, serving a million pupils, to allow children “to experiment with gender identity” ( Can you gimme hallelujah? So if you sent your kids to a Church of England school to protect him from the sex-obsessed Godlessness of public education–well, ha-ha-ha on you.

According to “new guidelines from the church,” children “must be allowed to identify as transgender.” Ultimately, explain the idiots in charge, this will “wipe out bullying.”

Verses from Romans spring to mind. “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools” (1:22). And whatever happened to “And be not conformed to this world…”? (12:2) But of course the one verse today’s geniuses have a real problem with is Genesis 1:27, “[M]ale and female created He them.”

You blockheads. If it really were possible to erase a sin from the earth by writing man-made laws against it, don’t you think someone would’ve done it by now? “Bullying”! You saps are being bullied by a Godless, idol-worshipping world, and you don’t even know it. Because it originates in the human heart and comes out from there, there will always be bullying. Only Jesus Christ can save us from our sins. Allowing kids to “dress up” for school in tutus and firemen’s helmets, while requiring everybody else to pretend they don’t see it, is not going to save anybody.

But as long as you’re conforming to the world, what else matters? You work hard to get the approval of the pagans. And you’re welcome to it. But in the words of an old Caribbean spiritual, “Where you gonna run to, all on That Day?”

Lesbian Bishop Nixes Cross, Welcomes Islam

Image result for images of church removing cross

There’s so much bad news to report today, but I’ve decided to cover only this item: Sweden’s first unrepentant lesbian bishop has ordered crosses and other Christian symbols removed from a Stockholm church, and arrows placed to show the direction to Mecca, to accommodate and “welcome” Muslim worshipers whom she calls “angels” ( ).

The church, located in Stockholm’s dockyard district, was built to serve seamen coming off their ships. Apparently the lesbian bishop thinks the church would be better used as some kind of “interfaith,” multi-culti prayer room.

Why cover this story? Because it goes to the heart of what afflicts us in this evil age: a widespread falling-away from Christian faith, abandoning true salvation in Jesus Christ for hip, cool, and altogether useless dollar-store “spirituality” that is no salvation at all.

I think it also shows us why the Stockholm Syndrome–victims coming to identify with those who prey on them–is called the Stockholm Syndrome.

We’ve seen the pattern many times. First, the ordination of women. I used to be in favor of that, but clearly it doesn’t seem to work out as intended. Then, the rejection of God’s moral laws regarding sexual behavior, and the ordination of openly practicing homosexuals and lesbians. And after that, the rejection of Christianity itself and the adoption of some kind of false religion. A few years ago, goddess worship was all the rage in these churches. Now it’s Islam. If they can find anything worse, they’ll take that up, too.

And so the church pisses away its moral authority, gives up its duty to teach the truth, and the society is left to drift this way and that because it has cut its anchor cable.

This is nothing more than stealth atheism, brewed up by Satan.

Logic break: The only way that all religions can be “equally true” is if all of them have a truth value of zero.

That’s what makes this atheism.
