Purgatory might not be reality

Pope Francis I will host “World Youth Day” July 23-28 in Rio de Janiero offering “plenary indulgences” to those who follow the event on Twitter, Facebook, or TV and attend confession and mass on Sunday. The promise of relief from purgatory sounds great, but purgatory is not in Scripture. The anthem “Sunrise Hope” is from Ezekiel 8:16 “...they worshiped the sun toward the east.” The world’s largest Idol of Jesus is in Rio facing the “rising sun.”

The motto, “Make disciples of all nations” from Luke 17:2 sounds fine, but Jesus is the only one who can make an “apostle.” The authorized Bible (King James version) uses “Teach all nations” for this reason. The glory of the lord departed Solomon’s Temple by the exact same route Jesus took.

Plenary indulgences were offered by Pope Urban II to Crusaders returning from battle; Jesus says “He who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword” (Revelations 13:10). They were again offered by Pope Leo X to those who paid for the rebuilding of Saint Peter’s Basilica. When Pope Benedict XVI resigned, lighting hit the Basilica dome twice. Nostradamus wrote the last Pope will flee Rome in December when two suns are in the sky; Comet ISON is expected to arrive Christmas 2013, becoming brighter than a full moon and visible during the day.

World Youth Day ends on Sunday July 28th, the same day 2,000 members of Bohemian Grove complete their annual “Cremation of Dull Care” ritual. Begone or Barra was the Sumerian sun-god worshiped at E-Barra, “Temple of the Sun” in Babylon. Seems nothing has changed since Abraham left.
