Is there a Schism in the Church?
It certainly seems that a definite division has been happening since the “resignation” of Pope Benedict XVI.
We have a man sitting on the throne of Peter, who constantly challenges the Teachings of Christ. There are many examples – Holy Communion to those not in state of Grace, approval of homosexual unions; that there is no Hell (only the annihilation of souls); that Christ, while on earth, was not Divine, the Abu Dhabi agreement; where it was said that God willed the diversity of religions… and many more statements and actions which contradict that which is taught by Christ and God in the Holy Bible.
While there are many who hasten to correct these ideas, including eminent bishops and cardinals, there are also those who embrace every change whole-heartedly, those who welcome, applaud and promote his relativistic views, his political stances disguised as “faith issues”, such as Laudato Si, while still others bury their heads in the sand- not believing a change is happening or not believing that it is not holy. In the instance of Laudatio Si, his teachings led to the natural consequence of allowing and promoting the highest, most blasphemous and heretical of all his actions – worship of pagan ”Pachamama” idols.
So is there a schism?
It was reported on Sept 10, 2019 that Pope Francis:
“ On his flight back from a week long trip to Africa, Pope Francis answered the small yet vocal crowd of critics of his papacy, saying that while he hopes for dialogue, he’s not afraid of a schism.
“There has always been a schismatic option in the church, always,” Francis said while answering a question from English speaking reporters on Tuesday (Sept. 10).
“I am not afraid of schisms. I pray that they won’t happen, because the spiritual health of a lot of people is at stake,” he added. (https://religionnews.com/2019/09/10/pope-francis-shrugs-off-critics-saying-schismatic-option-is-part-of-churchs-history/)
It seems that he is the one accusing those who challenge him to be the causes of a possible schism. This is a very clever tactic (called gas-lighting)– where you blame the other of that which you would be guilty.
In fact the definition of “schism” in the church is : “the formal separation of a Church into two Churches or the secession of a group owing to doctrinal and other differences.
In this case those seceding from authentic magisterium of Christ’s Teachings are ‘Pope’ Francis and his supporting bishops. Why? Because they dissent from Christ’s Teachings and the Holy Magisterium, not the other way around! They do not own Holy Mother Church- it belongs to Christ. They are the schismatics, not those faithful to the authentic Teachings of Christ, handed down to His Apostles, which can never change. Society, and man’s quest for power over all things, does not mean that we can change Christ’s Teachings. This is like saying that we know better than God. Faith does not ‘evolve’- the fullness of all Faith was seen and heard in Jesus. This is prophesied in the bible where we are warned against this: “For a time is coming when they will not endure sound doctrine; but having itching ears, they shall heap to themselves teachers in accordance with their own lusts.” (2 Timothy 4:3).
This Schism has not been formally acknowledged yet but has been foretold:
Our Lady at La Salette:
“Several religious institutions will lose all faith and will lose many souls…A great number of priests and members of religious orders will break away from the true religion. Among these people, there will even be bishops..”
St Francis of Asissi (d. 1226)
“There will be an uncanonically elected Pope who will cause a great schism, …”
Ven. Abp. Fulton Sheen said:
“The False Prophet will have a religion without a cross. A religion without a world to come. A religion to destroy religions. There will be a counterfeit church. Christ’s Church [the Catholic Church] will be one. And the False Prophet will create the other. The false church will be worldly, ecumenical, and global….. It will be emptied of all divine content and will be the mystical body of the Antichrist.”
The prophecy of Ven. Abp. Fulton Sheen refers to a “religion without a cross” (no need for Salvation; ‘just do good and we will meet you there…’ PF to atheists) “without a world to come” (there is no Hell). This church will be worldly, ecumenical, global. All Pope Francis has done, fits into the agenda covered by these last 3 words- including his political agenda (climate change, the environment, immigration, “obey” the United Nations and the signature of its 28 Sustainable Environment plans, signature of the Abhu Dhabi agreement, Laudatio Si, Amoris Laetitia,…)
You might say, ‘What about his care for the poor and those on the “outer fringe of society?” What good is it if a man gains the whole world but loses his soul? God is rarely mentioned. In fact he argues against “proselytizing”, and that all religions are acceptable to God, he doesn’t care about the Holy Sacraments being blasphemed by unworthy practices. (Pachamama, ritual pagan bowl on the altar during Mass). He speaks as if it is only an earthly Paradise that matters, and as if our good works alone can gain us heaven. And that should include the tolerance of sin in loving our neighbour; until all things become acceptable and Salvation is irrelevant. Nothing can be farther from the Truth. This is humanism- not Catholicism-; it’s not even Christian.
Does he care about the poor? The CCC teaches that we must care for the soul first ; that is perfect charity – to lead them to Heaven.
Jesus tells us in the Book of Truth that the schism will be in 3 stages:
“…The schism in My Church will be broken into different stages.
The first stage will be when only those who truly know Me, and understand the Truth of the Holy Gospels, will decide that they cannot accept lies in My Name.
The second stage will come about when people are denied the Holy Sacraments, as they are meant to be.
The third stage will be when My Churches have been desecrated and that will be when My sacred servants will, at last, understand the Truth contained in the Book of Revelation….”
It seems that we have seen samples of all these three stages happening. There is a schism now – but it has not yet been formally acknowledged.
What should you do?
The bible tells us:
“…9 Anyone who runs ahead, without remaining in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever remains in His teaching has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you but does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your home or even greet him. 11Whoever greets such a person shares in his evil deeds.… 2 John 1: 9-11
“So then, if some come to you who do not bring this teaching, do not welcome them in the house; do not even say, “Peace be with you.” 2 John 1:10
Now I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who create divisions and obstacles that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Turn away from them.
2 Thessalonians 3:6
Now we command you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to keep away from any brother who leads an undisciplined life that is not in keeping with the tradition you received from us.
2 Thessalonians 3:14
Take note of anyone who does not obey the instructions we have given in this letter. Do not associate with him, so that he may be ashamed.
Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them…
The Bible urges us to walk in the Truth:
(3 John 1:1–4)”
To the chosen lady and her children, whom I love in the truth—and not I alone, but also all who know the truth— 2 because of the truth that abides in us and will be with us forever.
3 Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, will be with us in truth and love. Walking in the Truth
4 I was overjoyed to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father has commanded us. 5 And now I urge you, dear lady—not as a new commandment to you, but one we have had from the beginning—that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to His commandments.
A Word of Hope:
“When you understand that the prophecies, given to the world from Heaven, amount to this – to increase your faith and to ensure that you remain true to My Holy Word, then you will accept them. When they take place, as revealed, then you will know the Truth.
Be ready. Be at peace, for I will walk with all of you who gather now to form My Remnant Army on Earth.” Your Jesus (20 Oct. 2013)
Jesus tells us when Schism occurs:
“I Am the Church. You, My followers, My sacred servants, are part of Me when you adhere to My Holy Doctrine.
The Church – My Church – will remain intact, for the Truth can never change. Those who separate from Me can not be part of My Church on Earth.
Your Jesus https://missionofsalvation.com/message-0916/
