Death of Moses – 1451 B.C. & The Irony of the Catholic Church

Finger Pointing UpThat song more-or-less summarizes the 40 years they’ve been in the desert.

1. A Ghostly Trace of the Jewish Occult
A Ghostly Trace of the Jewish Occult
A newly discovered piece of stained, wrinkled paper conjures up the details of a Jewish exorcism that appears to have been performed sometime in the 18th or 19th century.

A Prayer: A text fragment from a ceremony held in the 18th or 19th century and recovered from the Cairo Geniza.

The ghostly document details the prayers that were performed on Qamar bat Rahmah to try to rid her of the spirit of her dead husband, Nissim ben Bonia.

According to the handwritten but well-preserved Hebrew text, the rabbis asked the ghost to “leave this woman, Qamar bat Rahmah, [and forgo] all authority and control that it has over her; and Nissim ben Bonia shall have no more authority and control whatsoever over Qamar bat Rahmah in any form or manner at all.”

The 150-word text provides a haunting insight into the often forgotten world of the Jewish occult.

While exorcisms are frequently described in Jewish texts from the Middle Ages on, this appears to be the first text that provides the prayer used in a specific exorcism.

“It has names, and you can kind of speculate as to some sort of story lurking behind the names,” said Yossi Chajes, an expert on Jewish magic and mysticism at the University of Haifa who was not involved in the unearthing of the text.

“It’s an unusual document.”

“And this is the blessing, wherewith Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death” (Deut 33:1).

“Let Reuben live, and not die; and let not his men be few.

And this is the blessing of Judah: and he said, Hear, LORD, the voice of Judah, and bring him unto his people: let his hands be sufficient for him; and be thou an help to him from his enemies.

And of Levi he said, Let thy Thummim and thy Urim be with thy holy one, whom thou didst prove at Massah, and with whom thou didst strive at the waters of Meribah;” (Deut 33:6-8).

“And of Benjamin he said, The beloved of the LORD shall dwell in safety by him; and the LORD shall cover him all the day long, and he shall dwell between his shoulders.

And of Joseph he said, Blessed of the LORD be his land, for the precious things of heaven, for the dew, and for the deep that coucheth beneath” (Deut 33:12-13).

“And of Zebulun he said, Rejoice, Zebulun, in thy going out; and, Issachar, in thy tents” (Deut 33:18).

“And of Gad he said, Blessed be he that enlargeth Gad: he dwelleth as a lion, and teareth the arm with the crown of the head” (Deut 33:20).

“And of Dan he said, Dan is a lion’s whelp: he shall leap from Bashan.

3. Vatican denies Pope performed
Exorcist Calls for Rules to be Relaxed
Father Gabriele Amorth claims to have personally rid the world of more than 160,000 demons.

Head of the International Association of Exorcists, Father Amorth has called for a change in the rules so that all priests can perform exorcisms without first requiring permission from their bishop.

The call came following the claim that Pope Francis performed an exorcism on camera last week which waslater denied by the Vatican.”

Today, unfortunately, bishops don”t appoint sufficient exorcists.

We need many more,” said Father Amorth. “I hope that Rome will send out directives to bishops around the world calling on them to appoint more exorcists.”

“The Catholic Church”s leading “exorcist” is calling for all priests to be allowed to conduct the ritual after Pope Francis apparently performed one in St. Peter”s Square last week.”

And of Naphtali he said, O Naphtali, satisfied with favor, and full with the blessing of the LORD: possess thou the west and the south.

And of Asher he said, Let Asher be blessed with children; let him be acceptable to his brethren, and let him dip his foot in oil” (Deut 33:22-24).

“And Moses went up from the plains of Moab unto the mountain of Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, that is over against Jericho. And the LORD shewed him all the land of Gilead, unto Dan,

And all Naphtali, and the land of Ephraim, and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah, unto the utmost sea,

And the south, and the plain of the valley of Jericho, the city of palm trees, unto Zoar.

And the LORD said unto him, This is the land which I swear unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, saying, I will give it unto thy seed: I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither.

So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD” (Deut 34:1-5).

“And I besought the LORD at that time, saying,

O Lord GOD, thou hast begun to shew thy servant they greatness, and thy mighty hand: for what God is there in heaven or in earth that can do according to thy works, and according to thy might?

I pray thee, let me go over, and see the good land that is beyond Jordan, that goodly mountain, and Lebanon.

But the LORD was wroth with me for your sakes, and would not hear me: and the LORD said unto me, Let it suffice thee; speak no more unto me of this matter.

Get thee up into the top of Pisgah, and lift up thine eyes westward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and behold it with thine eyes: for thou shalt not go over this Jordan.

But charge Joshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him: for he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit the land which thou shalt see (Deut 3:23-28).

“And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against Beth-peor: but no man knoweth of his sepulcher unto this day.

And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.

And the children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days: so the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were ended” (Deut 34:6-8).

This valley was in the land of Sihon, the king of the Amorites, which the Israelites took from him. Bethpeor was given to the Reubenites. Therefore, Moses is said to have been buried in the land of Moab.

4. Mallevs Maleficarvm
Mallev’s Maleficarvm

The first and most important systematic book on witchcraft was the Malleus maleficarum [Hammer of witches]. It was written by Jacob Sprenger and Heinrich Kramer (or Institor), two Dominican friars, in 1486, and was reprinted repeatedly over the next two centuries.

Beliefs about witches

Witchcraft (maleficium) was the infliction of harm with diabolic help. In Europe, witchcraft was usually blamed on women, though there were some male witches.

Belief in witchcraft was ancient and was found in the Bible, classical law and literature, and popular folklore.

Sixteenth and seventeenth century discussions of witchcraft by educated commentators (both on the European Continent and in England) always insisted that a pact with the the devil lay behind witchcraft, — although they admitted that this pact was sometimes only tacit or implied.

Popular beliefs laid less stress on a pact with the devil but the earliest English accounts mention a “familiar” or “imp” who carried out the witches’ commands.

English witches, in contrast, were generally solitary, or occasionally associated with a few other family members or neighbors.

English witches’ daughters often followed in their mothers’ footsteps.

Saint Augustine argued that supernatural arts were effective only because demons helped the sorcerer or astrologer.

This concept was developed during the later Middle Ages into the notion that witches made a pact or covenant with the devil.

Likewise, the covenant is said to have been renewed in the land of Moab. It’s understood that this land did formerly belong to the Moabites, before the Amorites took it from them.

The archangel Michael disputed with the devil over the body of Moses (Jude 1:9).

2.
Vatican denies Pope performed exorcism
Claims that TV images show Pope Francis performing an exorcism have been denied by the Vatican.

The video was recorded during Sunday mass and showed a man reacting to the Pope placing his hands on his head, a scene typical of an exorcism.

The footage was shown on a TV channel owned by the Italian bishops” conference along with quotes from exorcists who suggested that it did indeed show Pope Francis performing such a ritual.

The devil wanted to expose the body that it might become an object of idolatry to the people of Israel. Chrysostom, Thodores, Procopius Gazan, and others stated this.

The first and most important systematic book on witchcraft was the Malleus maleficarum [Hammer of witches]. It was written by Jacob Sprenger and Heinrich Kramer (or Institor), two Dominican friars, in 1486, and was reprinted repeatedly over the next two centuries.

This dispute between Michael and the devil about the body of Moses is found in the apocryphal book called The Assumption of Moses, and similar stories by Rabbi Nathan are told.

All the Bible tells us is that the devil did argue with Michael over the body of Moses. What the argument was about is unknown for certain, but I believe that story to be correct, if not even more sinister because the wickedness of the devil knows no bounds.

Besides that, the devil’s sole purpose is to take us away from God and the best way to do that is to get us to do things we aren’t supposed to do, such as idolatry.

“And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Israel hearkened unto him, and did as the LORD commanded Moses.

And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face.

In all the signs and the wonders, which the LORD sent him to do in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all his land,

5. “exorcism hotline” has been launched in Milan
Catholic Church has the exorcism hotline. In one hell of an ambitious pilot program, an “exorcism hotline” has been launched in Milan, and it’s so popular they’ve had to install a switchboard during the week.

The diocese’s exorcism head honcho since 1995, Monsignor Angelo Mascheroni, told The Independent that requests for deliverance have doubled over the last two years, and thusly, their efforts to combat the surge of demonic activity have had to grow and adapt as well.

Enter: Dial An Exorcist.

“People in need can call and will be able to find a priest in the same area who doesn’t have to travel too far.”

What began as one priest fielding phone calls from the afflicted, quickly turned to six, and eventually became 12 priests working Monday through Friday,

The service is 100% free.

I guarantee it isn’t free because you will need to join the Catholic Church if you haven’t already and they will want you to give large donations and buy their symbols and things like the Rosary.

Aside from that, the Catholics are against God and will be going to hell, so it’s not free, it’ll cost you your sole.

And in all that mighty hand, and in all the great terror which Moses shewed in the sight of all Israel” (Deut 34:9-12).

The Irony of the Catholic Church

Decline of Religious Belief Means We Need More Exorcists, say Catholics

The following article is ironic simply because the Catholic’s love for Jesus Christ is about as real as a three dollar bill.  Plus, the Catholics like to say that Jesus performed exorcism, but He didn’t, He just demanded the demons to leave and they immediately left, but He did in the name of the Father.

I’m not saying people are not possessed, nor am I saying that we are not able to rebuke them, but we can’t do it without absolute faith in Jesus.  It is not a trick, like exorcism, it’s faith.

If a demon leaves a body through exorcism, they leave on their own free will to manipulate and overcome the exorcist.

The Catholic Church, just like the devil, either counterfeit things that Jesus did, or do things that are against Jesus, such as preaching that there is a Purgatory, the Rosary, they can forgive sins, exorcism, etc.

The decline of religious belief in the West and the growth of secularism has “opened the window” to black magic, Satanism and belief in the occult, the organizers of a conference on exorcism have said.

The Catholics practice black magic.

The six-day meeting in Rome aims to train about 200 Roman Catholic priests from more than 30 countries in how to cast out evil from people who believe themselves to be in thrall to the devil.

The conference, “Exorcism and Prayers of Liberation”, has also attracted psychiatrists, sociologists, doctors and criminologists in what the Church called a “multi-disciplinary” approach to exorcisms.

Giuseppe Ferrari, from GRIS, a Catholic research group that organised the conference, said there was an ever growing need for priests to be trained to perform exorcisms because of the increasing number of lay people tempted to dabble in black magic, paganism and the occult.

Talk about calling the kettle black.

“We live in a disenchanted society, a secularised world that thought it was being emancipated, but where religion is being thrown out, the window is being opened to superstition and irrationality,” said Mr Ferrari.

The abandonment of religion “inevitably leads people to ask questions about the existence of evil and its origins”, he told Adnkronos, an Italian news agency.

About 250 priests were trained as exorcists in Italy, but many more were needed, the conference organizers claimed.

“Just in the dioceses of Rome, around a third of calls that are received are requests for the services of an exorcist,” said Fr Cesar Truqui, a priest and exorcist from Switzerland and a member of the Legionaries of Christ, a conservative Catholic order.

7. Islam
Criticism of religion is criticism of the concepts, doctrines, validity, and/or practices of religion, including associated political and social implications.

Religious criticism has a long history.

It goes at least as far back as the 5th century B.C. in ancient Greece with Diagoras “the atheist” of Melos, and the 1st century B.C. in ancient Rome with Titus Lucretius Carus’ De Rerum Natura.

It continues to the present day with the advent of New Atheism, represented by authors and journalists such as Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens.

Alternatively, “religious criticism” has been used by the literary critic Harold Bloom to describe a mode of religious discussion that is secular but not inherently anti-religion.

Criticism of religion is complicated by the fact that there exist multiple definitions and concepts of religion in different cultures and languages.

With the existence of diverse categories of religion such as monotheism, polytheism, pantheism, nontheism and diverse specific religions such as Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Taoism, Buddhism, and many others; it is not always clear to whom the criticisms are aimed at or to what extent they are applicable to other religions.

Critics often consider religion to be outdated, harmful to the individual, harmful to society, an impediment to the progress of science, a source of immoral acts or customs, and a political tool for social control.

Jesus Christ stood against religion.

Religion is a government and the only god involved is the devil. There is only one God and that is Jesus Christ and He is not a Christian, He is God!

In the popular imagination, exorcisms evoke images of black-clad priests holding aloft silver crucifixes while trying to rid frothing, wild-eyed victims of Satanic possession.

6. A Mexican woman vomits during the exorcism
A Mexican woman vomits during the exorcism ritual performed at the Church of the Divine Savior in of Mexico City, Mexico, 31 May 2011.

Exorcism is an ancient religious technique of evicting spirits, generally called demons or evil, from a person which is believed to be possessed.

Although the formal catholic rite of exorcism is rarely seen and must be only conducted by a designated priest, there are many Christian pastors and preachers (known as ‘exorcistas’) performing exorcism and prayers of liberation.

Using their strong charisma, special skills and religious formulas, they command the evil spirit to depart a victim’s mind and body, usually invoking Jesus Christ or God to intervene in favor of a possessed person.

I’d vomit too, I gag whenever I come near a Catholic Church.

The Church tries to play down the more lurid associations but at the same time insists that the devil exists and must be fought on a daily basis.

“Exploring the theme of demonic possession does not mean causing general paranoia, but creating awareness of the existence of the devil and of the possibility of possession,” Fr Truqui told Vatican Radio. “It happens rarely but you can fight it with God, with prayer, with Marian devotion.”

Demonic possession manifests itself in people babbling in foreign languages, shaking uncontrollably and vomiting nails, pieces of metal and shards of glass, according to those who believe in the phenomenon.

Those thought to be possessed are supposed to undergo the official Catholic rite of exorcism, which involves a consecrated priest invoking the name of God, as well as various saints, to cast out their demons.

Pope Francis has frequently alluded to the devil in his homilies and addresses since being elected to succeed Benedict XVI last March.

In a homily this week, he said that the Devil was behind the persecution of early Christian martyrs, who were murdered for their faith. The “struggle between God and the Devil” was constant and ongoing, he said.

Rise of the Exorcists in Catholic Church

Dioceses across Italy, as well as in countries such as Spain, are increasing the number of priests schooled in administering the rite of exorcism, fabled to rid people of possession by the devil.

The rise in demonic cases is a result of more people dabbling in practices such as black magic, paganism, Satanic rites and Ouija boards, often exploring the dark arts with the help of information readily found on the internet, the Church said.

The increase in the number of priests being trained to tackle the phenomenon is also an effort by the Church to sideline unauthorised, self-proclaimed exorcists, and its tacit recognition that belief in Satan, once regarded by Catholic progressives as an embarrassment, is still very much alive.

The trend comes four decades after the 1973 release of The Exorcist, the American horror film based on the demonic possession of a 12-year-old girl and attempts to exorcise her by two priests.

The diocese of Milan recently nominated seven new exorcists, the bishop of Naples appointed three new ones a couple of years ago and the Catholic Church in Sardinia sent three priests for exorcism training in Rome, amid concern that the Mediterranean island, particularly its mountainous, tradition-bound interior, is a hotbed of occultism.

In Spain, Antonio Maria Rouco Varela, the archbishop of Madrid, chose eight priests to undergo special training in May to confront what he described as “an unprecedented rise” in cases of “demonic possession”.

The Church in Spain was coming across many cases that “go beyond the competence of psychologists” and they were occurring with “a striking frequency”, the archbishop said.

“Diabolical possessions are on the increase as a result of people subscribing to occultism,” said Fr Francesco Bamonte, the president of the Italy-based International Association for Exorcists.

“The few exorcists that we have in the dioceses are often not able to handle the enormous number of requests for help,” he told La Repubblica last month.

Fr Gabriele Amorth he has claimed that yoga is “evil” because it leads to a worship of Hinduism and other Eastern religions.

8. Religion Beliefs
Religion & Beliefs
A Washington Post article about the revival of interest in exorcisms in Eastern Europe made us wonder whether Judaism has any similar traditions.

The answer is surprising!

In the article, one Polish Catholic reverend discussed his plans to build a “spiritual oasis” that will serve as Europe’s only center dedicated to performing exorcisms.

He’s got the support of the Vatican, and last year Poland hosted the fourth International Congress of Exorcists, which attracted over 300 exorcism practitioners from around Europe.

Exorcisms these days aren’t like what you see in the movies, but they’re not exactly pleasant, either.

The WaPo article goes on to explain:

Exorcists said the people they help can be in the grip of evil to varying degrees.

Only a small fraction, they said, are completely possessed by demons — which can cause them to display inhuman strength, speak in exotic tongues, recoil in the presence of sacred objects or overpower others with a stench.

In those cases, the exorcists must confront the devil directly, using the power of the church to order it to abandon its host.

More often, however, priests perform what some of them refer to as “soft exorcisms,” using prayer to rid people of evil influences that control their lives.

It still sounds pretty crazy, and you may be patting yourself on the back for not being a part of such a wacky religion, but it turns out Jews have been doing our own version of exorcisms for centuries.

I agree with the above statement, but there are other Doors that Lead to Hell too. 

During the papacy of Benedict XVI he said that the sex abuse scandals which engulfed the Church in the US, Ireland, Australia and other countries were proof that the Antichrist was waging a war against the Holy See.

Yes there is, and may of them are in the Catholic Church.

The Church insists that the majority of people who claim to be possessed by the devil are suffering from a variety of mental health issues, from paranoia to depression. Priests generally advise them to seek medical help.

This would depend on how much money the assumed possessed person has and how much they are willing to give to the church.

But in a few cases, it is judged that the person really has been taken over by evil, and an exorcism is required.

9. Don Gianni Sini
Don Gianni Sini
Thursday, April 12 at 18 in the large conference room of the Chamber of Commerce in Sassari, is the book “When I speak with the devil,” the priest exorcist John Sini, published by Sugarco.

In over twenty years of ministry, Fr John Sini was able to discover that many people were unaware victims for a long time of evil and wickedness of other people.

Indeed, in some cases, the curse has been placed among the wedding gifts, the baby’s crib or there was even a consecration to Satan by a family even before birth.

Don Sini, although the exorcist of the diocese in charge of the Temple, because of the shortage of exorcists of their high average age, people often receive from other dioceses of Sardinia and the mainland.

“When one is desperate – says Fr Gianni – faces the discomfort of the journey.

It must be said, however, that often, the search of the exorcist is the last resort, because previously you are seeking alternative solutions, paying high digits, healers who have supernatural powers, granted you do not know which saint, and operate completely uprooted by the institution of the Church. “

When I speak with the devil tries to shed light on the mystery of evil and warn those who wish to experience strong, maybe getting in touch with the world of the occult, without, however, to calculate its disastrous consequences.

This guy should be in politics.

I’ve been places, experienced many things that are not pleasant and I tell you, the devil is real and he’s bad news, but we are not to mess with him (1 Pet 5:8).

Stay with God at all times and all will be well (Eph 6:11-17).

STAY AWAY FROM THE CATHOLICS!

The need for exorcisms is “rare, very rare”, said Fr Vincenzio Taraborelli, a priest in a church which lies just a few hundred yards from the Vatican. “In the cases where a mental illness is apparent, we try to send them to a doctor.”

Don Gianni Sini is a priest in Sardinia, an island with a reputation for spiritualism — its interior is dotted with mysterious stone-built structures called nuraghi, which predate Carthaginian and Roman occupation.

“People come to me thinking that with an exorcism they can resolve all the problems they have in their lives. A child is doing badly at school? With an exorcism we can make him study. They see exorcists as a last resort. Out of 100 people that I receive, there will be one who has need of me as an exorcist.”

“Demonic” possession manifests itself in people babbling in languages foreign to them, shaking uncontrollably and vomiting nails, pieces of metal and shards of glass, according to those who believe in the phenomenon.

They must undergo the official Catholic rite of exorcism, which involves a consecrated priest invoking the name of God, as well as various saints and the Archangel Michael, to cast out their demons.

The Catholics are famous for committing idolatry.  God tells us not to worship anyone but Him (Ex 20:3).

Nowhere in the Bible are we told that the dead act as intermediaries between God and man. We are clearly told that Jesus Christ was given that role, nobody else.

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus (1 Tim 2:5).

The growth in the number of priests being trained is “a response to public demand, but it’s also about quality control”, said John Allen, an expert on the Vatican from the National Catholic Reporter.

“There are all these guys, some of them priests, who have set themselves up as exorcists. A lot of it is fairly dodgy theologically — they are self-appointed exorcists running around purporting to be acting on behalf of the Church.

“Now there is an attempt to ensure that all this is done in accordance with the Church’s official teaching. The hierarchy don’t want it going on outside the official channels.” Monsignor Bruno Forte, a theologian and the archbishop of Chieti-Vasto, said the Church teaches that evil exists and that in extreme cases it can take possession of a person.

The Catholic Church also preaches that to communicate with God you must go through them and only through them can one be saved. The Catholic Church is almost as evil as the Jews.

“God has the power to beat his adversary, but Satan never ceases to work. There are people who experiment with subjection to the devil, even a state of diabolical possession, for which the help of an exorcist can be necessary,” he told La Repubblica.

Just another note, you may not think it means anything, but it does.  Throughout this entire article the word “devil” was capitalized (I corrected the error because I can’t stand to give Satan anything that he doesn’t deserve – that would be like voting for Obama).  The devil is a thing, not a proper name or an office, so why is it capitalized?

Because the Catholics worship Satan.  We capitalize God because He is “The” God, but we don’t capitalize the pagan gods.

“When Christians recite the Our Father prayer, they ask for delivery from evil. In every diocese the bishop chooses one or two priests to act as exorcists — they have to be well balanced and discreet.

“The great majority do not have need of an exorcism, but medical treatment. But with those who are possessed we begin a course of conversion, help them to return to prayer, to the sacraments, to enable them to throw off the possession.”

I wouldnt’ trust the Catholics to do any of their woo-woo with me, I’d trust the government more than them, all they can do is bankrupt me, the Catholics will sell your soul.

Belief in black magic and Satanism may have been spread by the internet, but there has been a streak of popular superstition in the Catholic Church for centuries. “I’m not sure it ever really went away,” said Mr Allen.

No, the Catholics started promoting this, not the Internet, but they use the Internet to spread the news. Look at Pope Francis, he says that if you follow him on Twitter you will do less time in Purgatory.

12.Tu Ethnic Dance
Tu Ethnic Minority Men Dance During Exorcism Ceremony
A Tu ethnic minority group man applies ashes on his body as he puts on make-up for the “Wutu” Dance during an annual exorcism ceremony at Nianduhu Village on January 8, 2007 in Tongren County of Qinghai Province, northwest China.

The village holds a ceremony to drive out evil spirits every year, in which they will choose seven strong men to perform the ancient dance “Wutu”, which means tiger in ancient time.

The men will apply ashes and draw lines on their bodies, villagers then put Chinese bread and meat on the sticks of the Wutus.

The more food Wutus took, the more luck they were considered to bring, as the villagers think Wutus take away bad luck and evil.

In the end of the ceremony, Wutus will wash themselves in the river symbolizing getting rid of the evil.

“After the Second Vatican Council of the 1960s, there was a great deal of embarrassment among ‘enlightened’ Catholics about exorcisms and other aspects of the supernatural. It was seen as a medieval anachronism.

“But at the grassroots level there has always been a very strong streak of popular religion, a fascination with the occult and the powers of the devil.

“We know that Pope Francis is a strong believer in popular religion such as Marian devotion, but that also includes belief in the devil.”

Pope Francis is a strong believer in his pocket book and Twitter, i.e., his popularity, he has no knowledge on the devil or salvation.  He’s the Pope so the priests have to say he knows things something of they are in trouble, just like the Generals have to agree with Obama, but he knows nothing of military strategy.

<strong><span style="color: #0000ff;">The association was founded in 1993 by<span style="color: #800000;"> Fr Gabriele Amort</span>h, who served as the Vatican’s chief exorcist and claims to have conducted thousands of exorcisms.</span></strong><br /> <strong><span style="color: #0000ff;">“Diabolical possessions are on the increase as a result of people subscribing to occultism,” said Fr Francesco Bamonte, the president of the Italy-based International Association for Exorcists.</span></strong><br /> <strong><span style="color: #0000ff;">“The few exorcists that we have in the dioceses are often not able to handle the enormous number of requests for help,” he told La Repubblica last month.</span></strong><br /> <span style="color: #008000;"><strong>I have no doubt that some people become diabolically possessed, but how did that happen?</strong></span><br /> <span style="color: #008080;"><strong>Did it occur to anyone that only the Catholics perform exorcism?</strong></span><br /> <span style="color: #008000;"><strong>If you want drugs you go to a drug dealer.</strong></span><br /> <span style="color: #008080;"><strong>Well, whether you want to get close to the devil or not, you will if you enter his house and one of them is all over the world - the Catholic Church.</strong></span>
Exorcist Calls for Rules to be Relaxed
Father Gabriele Amorth claims to have personally rid the world of more than 160,000 demons.

Head of the International Association of Exorcists, Father Amorth has called for a change in the rules so that all priests can perform exorcisms without first requiring permission from their bishop.

The call came following the claim that Pope Francis performed an exorcism on camera last week which waslater denied by the Vatican.”

Today, unfortunately, bishops don”t appoint sufficient exorcists.

We need many more,” said Father Amorth. “I hope that Rome will send out directives to bishops around the world calling on them to appoint more exorcists.”

“The Catholic Church”s leading “exorcist” is calling for all priests to be allowed to conduct the ritual after Pope Francis apparently performed one in St. Peter”s Square last week.”

In May it was claimed that Pope Francis had performed an exorcism during a Mass in St Peter’s Square.

Television images show him laying his hands on a wheelchair-bound man, who appears to go into convulsions with his mouth open before slumping down into his chair.

The encounter was shown by TV2000, a channel owned by the Italian bishops’ conference, which quoted experts as saying that there was no doubt the Pope had performed an exorcism.

The guy was as possessed as Linda Blair had been in the Exorcist. 

Fr Federico Lombardi, the Vatican spokesman, later dismissed the claims, saying Pope Francis “did not intend” to perform an exorcism — an ambivalently-worded denial that left many convinced that he had indeed done so.

Pope Francis has not publicly commented on exorcisms, but many of his sermons and homilies feature references to the devil.

During a Mass in November in the Casa Santa Marta, the Vatican residence where he lives, he said that although “God created man to be incorruptible”, the devil entered the world and there are those “who belong to him”.

This is true for most of the Jews and anyone that believes the hogwash that the Catholic Church preaches. As Jesus had said:

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it (Jn 8:44).

At a Mass days before, he talked of the dangers of worldliness, warning that: “When we think of our enemies, we really think of the devil first, because it’s the devil that harms us. The devil enjoys the atmosphere, the lifestyle of worldliness.”

Yes, if you are not with Jesus the devil will get you, if the Catholics don’t.  If you attend their Mass you are on your way to hell.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour (1 Pet 5:8).
