The Lord is Our King, He will save us.

Dóminus iudex noster, Dóminus légifer noster: Dóminus Rex noster, ipse salvábit nos.

The Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver: the Lord is our king, He will save us.

This is the Fourth Antiphon of First and Second Vespers of the Feast of Jesus Christ, King of the Universe.

I find it to be a manful, succinct encapsulation of reality. Perhaps a little license with emphatic capitalization would be opportune.

He WILL save us.

And remember, He is King of All by Divine Right, because He is The Creator, but He is also King of All by Conquest via His Incarnation as True Man. And that Conquest occurred at the instant of His Incarnation in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary. So even as an Infant, nay even as a Single Celled Zygote, He was and is truly the Sovereign King of the Universe BY CONQUEST.

Ecce ancilla Domini.

No Pachamamas seen, but this plant was “offered” and placed on the Altar. Cardinals gave Antipope Bergoglio an ultimatum?

(Many citations and updates about the Pachamama Demon plant offering at the top, HERE.  Be sure to read and share.)

This is my own screen cap from the Vatican video feed.

It sounds like a group of Cardinals stood up to Antipope Bergoglio. Via GloriaTV, quoting Damian Thompson:

“Thompson further learned that “many bishops, including some cardinals, will not feel able to attend the Synod’s closing Mass if the [Pachamama] statues are on display.”

Here is the world’s ugliest plant (correspondents have already likened it to a Venus Flytrap, and not the WKRP disc jockey) being presented by a young girl who we hope and pray isn’t Bishop Kräutler’s little concubine that he has been parading around Rome hand-in-hand with…

Antipope Bergoglio Drops a Book Explicitly Declaring Christ Dethroned as King of the Universe

Via the NonVeniPacemBlog, with all of the focus on the Pachamama demon idols going Splashamama, it was perhaps overlooked that Antipope Bergoglio released a new ghostwritten book on Thursday, which Vatican News (formerly Vatican Radio) lovingly wrote up.  The book is idolatrously titled, “Our Mother Earth: A Christian reading of the environmental challenge.”

In it, gleefully repeated by Vatican News, is this:

“It is therefore humanity’s destiny to determine the destiny of the universe”.

Today is the Solemnity of Jesus Christ, King of the Universe.  Do not think for ONE SECOND that any of this is a coincidence.  It isn’t. This is the planned declaration by Antipope Bergoglio (who ticks every box for being the False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist) and his satanic-Freemasonic cabal of the “dethroning of Christ” and the enthronement of MAN, with the Pachamama demon taking the place of the Blessed Virgin Mary as the “new Queen Mother”.  The thing is, Freemasonry is satanic.  The motif of man worshiping himself (man) as god is actually the con that Freemasonry runs in order to suck people in. Pachamama has no interest in sitting at anyone’s right hand.  This all is driving directly to satanism, which is what Freemasonry is – socially presentable satanism.

Remember, Lucifer wanted to fulfill the role of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  Lucifer wanted to be the vector by which God Incarnated into the world.  This is why Satan hates the Blessed Virgin and is in a constant state of envy-driven enmity with her.  This is why the Pachamama, which is really just another guise of satan, is presented as “life-giving mother”.  This is all satan’s pathetic attempt to not just dethrone Christ, but to replace the Blessed Virgin Mary as well.

Remember this as you watch today’s events unfold in Rome.


O Jesus Christ, I acknowledge You as Universal King. All that has been made has been created for You. Exercise all Your rights over me. I renew my Baptismal Vows. I renounce Satan, his pomps and his works; I promise to live as a good Christian. And, in particular do I pledge myself to labor, to the best of my ability, for the triumph of the rights of God and of Your Church. Divine Heart of Jesus, to You do I offer my poor services, laboring that all hearts may acknowledge Your sacred kingship, and that thus the reign of Your peace be established throughout the whole universe. Amen.

Canon 359? Wait, you don’t know about Canon 359?? Ho-ho-ho, well, pull up a chair…

(Oh my GOODNESS, of course.)

As I keep trying to drive home, the Church is a Supernatural institution, created by God as His Bride, and Mystical Body, of which He is the Head.  And God, being God, is a really, really, really good organizer and “Human Resources manager”.  Being omniscient tends to yield… COMPETENCE.

The Divine Providence – always perfect, by the way – has given us the 1983 Code of Canon Law.  That is the Law of the Church.  To think that the Divine Providence would put us, the Church Militant, into this situation with the Bergoglian Antipapacy – a JURIDICAL situation – without any sort of Rule of Law, or even a Rule of Law that didn’t provide clear, visible protections of the Petrine See is madness, and flirting with blasphemy.  Why?  Because it would directly imply an INCOMPETENCE on God’s part, a failure of the Divine Providence.  Argue this at your own peril.

So, given this, let’s look at Canon 359, which very clearly addresses the juridical competence of the College of Cardinals, a body which Trad Inc. “thought leaders” simultaneously declare INFALLIBLE on a DOGMATIC LEVEL, any questioning of which is an act of SCHISM, and then literally in the next breath declare the same men to be subscribers to “a different religion”, and “not the Church” (because remember, ALL Cardinals are Novus Ordo). Yes, the cognitive dissonance is absolutely staggering, and is simply a proof set that “diabolical disorientation” is real, and what it looks like. Daily Mass and Rosary (while in a state of grace, obviously) is the first line of defense against diabolical disorientation.  This is why I recommend it so VERY strenuously in these dark days of confusion.

Can. 359 When the Apostolic See is vacant, the college of cardinals possesses only that power in the Church which is attributed to it in special law.

Can. 359 — Sede Apostolica vacante, Cardinalium Collegium ea tantum in Ecclesia gaudet potestate, quae in peculiari lege eidem tribuitur.

Folks, the very first clause is the punchline in this situation: WHEN THE APOSTOLIC SEE IS VACANT.

What this Canon does is 100% prohibit and utterly nullify ANY conclave convened while the Petrine See is STILL OCCUPIED, that is, NOT VACANT – no matter what the circumstance, including totally unprecedented circumstances, such as this current situation of Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger trying to partially resign only the administrative/governance ministerio, and “expand” the Petrine Office into a “collegial, synodal, shared ministry”.

I have to laugh at the argument that any situation without precedent, such as this situation today, must therefore be non-existent, because EVERY situation MUST have a precedent.  If this were true, then it would negate existence itself, because if nothing can exist without a precedent, then by LOGICAL DEFINITION, no “first instance” can EVER occur.  But if a first instance is required to set a circumstantial precedent, but no first instance can ever occur because everything MUST have a circumstantial precedent…. Oh dear.  [begin sarcasm] So much for Our Lord’s Incarnation.  That had never happened before, so it must not have actually happened.  And so much for God dying on the Cross.  God had never died before, so that must not have happened either.  So much for the Transubstantiation of the bread and wine into the physical substance of God, because that had never happened before, so it must not have actually happened at the Last Supper, and thus it has never happened subsequently.  I’m afraid reality itself is all a lie.  So much for John 1:1.  I guess that has been a gross misunderstanding by a bunch of bead-squeezing simpletons, too. [end sarcasm]

If the See is occupied, for whatever reason and under whatever circumstance – IF THERE IS A LIVING POPE, OCCUPYING THE SEE, WHETHER HE LIKES IT OR NOT – it is completely, totally, 100% impossible for a valid conclave to be convened.  This isn’t an instance of “illicit yet valid” – as we see from Canon 359 above.  It is ONTOLOGICALLY IMPOSSIBLE for a valid conclave to be called, much less a valid Pope coming out of such an invalid conclave.  PERIOD.  This is absolutely essential in order to protect the Papacy.  To think that God couldn’t foresee this and provide for it in these dark days is madness.

Why?  Because God isn’t an idiot, and is, in fact, a really, really good “Human Resources manager”. And loves us.  Don’t ever, ever forget that.  He loves us, and would NEVER break his promise to us, His Church. That Antipope Bergoglio is proof that God has reneged on His promise to Peter and Peter’s successors is now taken for GRANTED by most “Trad Inc.” partisans.

Think about it folks, do you honestly believe that Our Lord would permit the College of Cardinals to call in error, malice or for any other reason a conclave WHILE THE SEE IS STILL OCCUPIED? While there is still a sitting Pope?  Do you honestly believe that Our Lord would:

WITHDRAW the ONTOLOGICAL REALITY of the PAPACY from a VALIDLY SEATED (and in this case, STILL VALIDLY SEATED due to the proffering of a Substantially Erroneous attempted “partial” resignation of the ACTIVE, ADMINISTRATIVE MINISTERIO, BUT NOT THE OFFICE IN SE) Pope, and then bestow the Papacy upon another man, all because the College of Cardinals said so?  Law be damned?  Common sense be damned?  Order be damned?  The Papacy be damned? THE CHURCH HERSELF BE DAMNED??

[begin sarcasm] So all this time, the Vicar of Jesus Christ on Earth COULD have been deposed if the College of Cardinals got together and decided to simply call a conclave.  So, what this means is that the Papacy, all this time, has been subject to a VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE, and that hence forth, we should expect that the Pope will serve AT THE PLEASURE OF THE COLLEGE OF CARDINALS, and the truth is, it has been this way all along, it’s just that the entire Church Militant, every saint, and every doctor of the Church for the past 2000 years has completely misunderstood the Papacy, and only NOW, only NOW in this age of moral depravity, social media addiction, and a near-total collapse of anything that could honestly be called “Academia” in the Church, only NOW is all of this being figured out – by people who watch television shows such as “Game of Thrones” (which is porn), spend all day every day on Social Media platforms obsessing about movies about comic book characters, and hurling vile insults at complete strangers like so many macaques hurling their waste.   [end sarcasm] 

Ummmmm.  NO.

[begin sarcasm] Every instance of the “Tu Es Petrus” being prayed for these 2000 years has been a hideous manifestation of the stupidity and ridiculous papolatry of the Church Militant.  Youbetcha. 

Latinists?  We need a translation.  Instead of “Tu es Petrus….” we need the Latin for:

“You are the College of Cardinals, and upon this slag I will build My Church.”

Because Jesus clearly got it wrong, and the Holy Ghost clearly erred in recoding Our Blessed Lord’s mistake in the Gospels.

Funny, though, how the play on words goes away.  Huh.  Funny that.  It’s almost enough to make one think that the whole changing of Simon Bar-Jona’s name to ROCK, like, meant something profound.  Ah, what infantile stupidity!  Thank God that “Pope Francis” has liberated us from such childish notions!  Now, finally, the Church can move forward, acknowledging the supremacy of the College of Cardinals as the REAL power, and the Papacy can finally, at long last, be understood as the meaningless figurehead position that it always has been. [end sarcasm]

Folks, WELCOME TO FREEMASONRY.  Whether you enter the Lodge through the front door, or the back door in the alley, you’re still in the Lodge.

Pro tip: if your position is irrational and lines up EXACTLY with the clearly stated goals of freemasonry, and of satan himself, you MIGHT want to check your base premise.

And remember, this is of the utmost importance because IF Bergoglio somehow “goes away” while Pope Benedict XVI is still alive and occupying the See as he is today, and another “conclave” is called, that conclave WILL ALSO BE INVALID, and it will yield ANOTHER Antipope.

Folks, we HAVE TO GET THIS RIGHT.  Half-measures and half-truth simply doesn’t work.  Either this situation gets fixed at the root, or else it will only get worse.  The chaos of the false base premise will continue and grow, and then we will end up with an Antipope Parolin or Antipope Tagle, 20 years younger than Antipope Bergoglio. This is why the whole “Bergoglio is a heretic” tack, and likewise the “electioneering” of the ARSH 2013 faux-conclave are rabbit holes that both lead to hell, even though the folks pursuing them are really good people.  Bergoglio never has been the Pope and thus his obvious status as an arch-heretic is NOT GERMANE, because there WAS NO CONCLAVE in March of ARSH 2013.  We HAVE to get this right.

Pray for Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger, the Papacy, and Holy Mother Church.

And GO TO MASS, and consider asking Our Lord to give YOU, in imitation of Our Lord in the Garden, scourged at the Pillar, and being nailed to the Cross, any temporal punishment that might be due to a priest who commemorates the wrong man at the Te Igitur.  “Give it to me.” NOTHING enflames fraternal charity quite so quickly as volunteering to take on temporal punishment for another, most especially for priests and bishops, who, God knows, need all the support in this sense that we can give them.

Our Lady, undoer of knots, pray for us.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and on Your Holy Church.

All that’s missing now is the orgy.

But then, it’s probably just being held at Cardinal Coccopalmerio’s place. I’m thinking October has been a big month for the male prostitutes and drug dealers of Rome.

Pope Benedict’s Words on 27 February, ARSH 2013 – Just In Case You Have Forgotten

The “always” is also a “for-ever” – there can no longer be a return to the private sphere. My decision to resign the active exercise of the ministry does not revoke this. I do not return to private life, to a life of travel, meetings, receptions, conferences, and so on. I am not abandoning the cross, but remaining in a new way at the side of the crucified Lord. I no longer bear the power of office for the governance of the Church, but in the service of prayer I remain, so to speak, in the enclosure of Saint Peter. Saint Benedict, whose name I bear as Pope, will be a great example for me in this. He showed us the way for a life which, whether active or passive, is completely given over to the work of God.

Pope Benedict XVI, “Final” Wednesday Audience, 27 February, ARSH 2013

Tell me more about how there is simply no evidence, when these 138 words (in English translation) are more than enough.

I’d also like to echo and reiterate something Mark Docherty of the NonVeniPacem blog said yesterday.  Antipope Bergoglio, in saying, on video no less, that the idols absolutely, positively are the Pachamama demon, has left zero doubt as to what it is that is happening when he enshrines these things in St. Peter’s tomorrow – the Feast of Christ the King no less.

VISIBILITY, VISIBILITY, VISIBILITY.  Our Blessed Lord is so, so good to us.  Like His crucifixion, so public, so visible, so humiliating, He is now, in these dark days, for love of us, making sure that everything about this hellish situation is VISIBLE so that we may LOOK and SEE and KNOW.

And Jesus making answer said to them: Go and relate to John what you have heard and seen.

 I can’t help but point out that the Summorum Pontificum pilgrimage is happening in Rome now.  There are Trads from all over the world converged on Rome right now, more than any other time of the year.  Rome is at “peak Trad” right now.  The troops are already mustered.  The numbers are there.  Will anyone step to the front and lead any protest action?  Will anyone sound the proverbial Horn of Helm Hammerhand?

Lastly, Regina Magazine has taken the step of publicly stating that they will no longer refer to Jorge Bergoglio as “Pope Francis”.  Let us hope and pray that they are NOT false sedevacantists now, because the See is very much occupied by Pope Benedict XVI, and has been since April ARSH 2005.  This is why I have been saying for years now that “Francis is Pope” false base premise leads to false sedevacatism (which is a distinct phenomenon separate and apart from 1958 sedevacatism – the Regina Magazine folks have absolutely NOTHING to do with 1958 sedevacantism, let it be well noted.)

 

UPDATED WITH VIDEO: Antipope Bergoglio just announced that he will install the “found” demonic Pachamama idols in St. Peter’s Basilica on Sunday

It’s all happening, folks.

When therefore you shall see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place: he that readeth let him understand. Matthew 24: 15

The Pope (sic) to the Synod Fathers: The police have found the “Pachamama statues” and they will be in St. Peter’s

 | 

Diary of a synodal father

The Pope (sic) has apologized for what happened with the pagan images venerated in a church in Rome. But not for venerating them, or presiding rare rituals, no, but for the fact that some Catholics have entered the church to take the images and throw them into the Tiber.

It was this afternoon, at the beginning of the afternoon session in the synodal classroom, when in his speech Pope Francis (sic) apologized for what happened to the Pachamama (Mother Earth) images – which they took from the church of Santa Maria in Traspontina and threw into the Tiber river— and said the police found them and they are at the police station.

The Pope (sic) made a shocking announcement at the end of the session:

“On Sunday those images will be in St. Peter’s Basilica at the closing Mass of the Synod …


LifeSite has video clandestinely taken today of Antipope Bergoglio calling the demon idols “Pachamamas”, so there is no more arguing that they are anything other than what they are.  He also apologizes as “the Bishop of Rome”. This is LifeSite’s English translation of what Antipope Bergoglio says in this video:

Good afternoon, I would like to say a word about the pachamama statues that were removed from the Church at Traspontina, which were there without idolatrous intentions and were thrown into the Tiber.

First of all, this happened in Rome and, as bishop of the diocese, I ask pardon of the people who were offended by this act.

Then, I can inform you that the statues which created so much media clamor were found in the Tiber. The statues are not damaged.

The Commander of the Carabinieri [Italian police] wished to inform us of the retrieval before the news becomes public. At the moment the news is confidential, and the statues are being kept in the office of the Commander of the Italian Carabinieri.

The leadership of the Carabinieri will be very happy to follow any indication given on the method of making the news public, and regarding the other initiatives desired in its regard, for example, the commander said, “the display of the statues at the closing Mass of the Synod.” We’ll see.

I delegate the Secretary of State to respond to this.

This is good news, thank you.

“Pierre Delecto, rentre chez toi!” Repost from the Deep Video Archive

This scathing takedown of the truly revolting Williard “Mittens” Romney, aka “Pierre Delecto”, over at amgreatness.com is worth a read.  “Mitt Romney is that guy.” Indeed.

Which reminds one of this video from the deep video archive.  Originally titled, “Romney Go Home”, I suppose I should now subtitle it, “Pierre Delecto, rentre chez toi!”

And here is a fun little animation version that someone did.

Important Deep Background Info on Pachamama from ARSH 2012. For aggressive distribution.

I don’t endorse the author of the following blog, nor 100% of its contents, HOWEVER I do think that this info is worth engaging and spreading. I always like being able to look at data that is removed from current events in time – this blog article is from ARSH 2012.

The Green Virgin – Pachamama: The final balance between Common Law and the Law of Mother Nature

by Niki Raapana, June 14, 2012

Key words and names here:

Communitarianism.

Evo Morales (Communist dictator of Bolivia)

Amatai Etzioni

Active in the New World Order Project since the 1960s, Dr. Amitai Etzioni is credited with introducing the theory of Communitarianism to “the upper reaches of academia” in the late 1980s. Etzioni is heralded as the “father” and “guru” of Communitarianism.

Pachamama was ressurected by the Communitarians to become the blessed Mother of us all, and much like Etzioni’s Cabbalistic interpretation of the oral and secret Talmud with a good mix of Greek and New Testament sentiments, the Pachamama is less of a religion and more of a law religionalized.

Etzioni was Bill Clinton’s “silent” mentor, Hillary Clinton praised Etzioni in her book “It Takes A Village,” and the Obamas have known Etzioni since they began their Communitarian neighborhood activist training at Northwestern University under Communitarian Network Professor John McNight. 

Etzioni’s idea for Community Policing was adopted by the U.S. Congress in 1994. Today it is a worldwide policing strategy. Prominent Communitarian author Robert Putnam was President George Bush Jr’s Press Secretary. Putnam described Bush’s Compassionate Conservatism as Etzioni’s idea of Communitarianism to the Washington Post in 2002.

So how is Amitai Etzioni connected to the rebirth of the Andean Pachamama, exactly?

Pachamama represents Communitarian Socialism to the Bolivians who wrote it into their new constitution in 2009.

“The historic enactment of Bolivia’s new constitution that grants unprecedented rights to the country’s indigenous majority, approved by over 61% of the vote on January 25, represented the beginning of “communitarian socialism”, according to President Evo Morales.

This was not the first time Bolivia’s first indigenous president had raised the concept of “communitarian socialism”. In his April 2008 speech to the United Nations, Morales spoke of the need for “a communitarian socialism in harmony with Mother Earth”. Green Left Weekly 11

This article and the info contained therein (and there is a lot) merits dissemination and investigation. And remember, it is all from June ARSH 2012 or earlier.

“… a law religion-ized.”

New World Order. One World Government, One World Religion.

A law, religion-ized.

Yep.

I hope this helps.

Mailbag: “You made a logical convert out of me.” Q: What Exactly Does “SUBSTANTIAL ERROR” Mean?

Over the transom:

Ann,

Thank you for the link [answering a previous emailed question about the canonical definition of “Substantial Error”]. I must have missed or forgotten that article [reprinted in full below]. 

I must admit that when I first stumbled on your blog, and read about Benedict’s resignation not being valid, I thought you were crazy. But something told me to stick to reading, and I did. And now, you have made a logical convert of me. 

Yes, I have had that sort of push back when I have made statements unrelated to the resignation, and the answer is always the snide “you’re not a [insert name of profession]”. Does one really have to hold a degree in Canon Law to understand what it says? I hope not, because a lot of Canon Lawyers are getting it massively wrong! 

What also shook me was seeing your posts of Skojec and Hilary White openly questioning a dogmatic Ecumenical Council on the Dogma of Papal Infallibility. But, as you say, that is the logical progression when you start with a false premise. 

Kind Regards,

M

Q: What does Substantial Error mean?

A: Ignorance or misjudgment about the essential nature, main terms, or principal motive of the object of an act.

Pope Benedict’s failed attempted partial abdication violates all three terms in this definition.  The essential object of the act of resignation of the Papacy is the renunciation of the OFFICE (MUNUS).  This is explicitly laid down in Canon 332.2, simply confirming common sense. As we have discussed several times before, an OFFICE is a state of BEING.  In order to resign the papacy, you have to renounce BEING the pope, that is, holding the OFFICE.  MINISTRY (MINISTERIUM) refers to things that the Pope may or may not elect to DO or be able to DO as a result of BEING the Pope, such as teaching, governing and presiding.  A MINISTERIUM is derivative of the MUNUS.  Ministries are OPTIONAL CONTINGENT ACTIVITIES of the ontological state of BEING the holder of the Petrine OFFICE.  As we have said before, these two MAIN TERMS, OFFICE and MINISTRY, belong to completely different categories, ‘being’ and ‘doing’, and thus can not now nor ever be argued to be synonymous in English or any other language.

As we have seen from the mountain of data already cited in this space, Pope Benedict’s PRINCIPAL MOTIVE in proffering his invalid attempted partial abdication of only the “Active Petrine Ministry” for “the governance of the Church” seems to have been long-discussed and longed-for by 20th Century Teutonic theologians, as well as Freemasons looking to destroy the Catholic Church by dissolving the Petrine OFFICE – the last remaining monarchy – into a “collegial, synodal ministry”. A second co-extant PRINCIPAL MOTIVE seems to also be coercion, which is covered discretely as an invalidating factor in Canon 188.

Since the Petrine OFFICE, established by Jesus Christ Himself, cannot be “fundamentally transformed” nor “expanded”, the PRINCIPAL MOTIVE of the OBJECT OF THE ACT was defective, that is, SUBSTANTIALLY ERRONEOUS.

Can. 188 A resignation made out of grave fear that is inflicted unjustly or out of malice, substantial error, or simony is invalid by the law itself.

Hang in there, everybody!  If you are a person who is unsure of what exactly the heck is going on with Antipope Bergoglio and the Catholic Church, my advice to you is:

-DON’T FEEL BAD. THIS SITUATION IS ABSOLUTELY UNPRECEDENTED. YOU ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING WRONG OR SINFUL BY ACKNOWLEDGING THAT SOMETHIN’ SERIOUSLY AIN’T RIGHT, AND WANTING TO FIGURE IT OUT. IN FACT, IT WOULD BE SINFUL FOR YOU NOT TO CARE ABOUT THE TRUTH.

-KEEP READING, KEEP RESEARCHING, KEEP THINKING, KEEP PRAYING. Ask the Holy Ghost to direct you to all Truth, and to illuminate the path.  Remember, the Visibility of the Church is NOT a matter of how many people see it, or claim that they can’t see it.  The Church will always be visible – lit up by the Light of Christ – but people fallen into the darkness of sin will be blinded to it. Imagine Ray Charles standing on the Las Vegas Strip.  Ray’s blind.  He can’t see it.  That doesn’t mean that Las Vegas is “invisible”. It just means that Ray is blind.

Remember the Prologue of St. John’s Gospel: And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. Et lux in tenebris lucet, et tenebrae eam non comprehenderunt.

-Finally, stay humble, which does NOT mean check your brain at the door.  My new favorite saying comes from Our Lord’s words to St. Catherine of Siena: “Do you know, dear daughter, who you are, and who I AM? You are she who is not, and I AM, instead THE ONE WHO IS.  Never forget this, and you will never be deceived by the enemy.”  God is infinite love, goodness, truth, beauty, fidelity, power, justice, mercy, sovereignty, wisdom, holiness and faithfulness. If you put the reality of WHO GOD IS at the center of everything and never, ever forget it, you won’t need to have a degree in theology, or be a canon lawyer – heck, you won’t even need to be able to READ.  On the other hand, deny ANY of these attributes of God, or even just FORGET about them, and the Deceiver will pounce.

I hope this helps.
