Jesus did not approve his servants to act like fleshy, earthly Kings. They were going to be the very servants of their sheep.
The whole arrangement of this Papal ceremony is a true copy of pagan king adoration found on ancient wall paintings in Egypt.
One of the ministers of this blog raised this question: Are the Roman Catholics motives behind copying paganism, a bid to make it easier for pagans to convert?
At first reflection, this seems to be a valid question. But a deeper look into this matter, will raise serious objections. You can not lure people to convert by copying what is wrong. You should rather be a good example of what is right.
The Bible gives us the guidance:
You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter.
Jesus never permitted his students to act like Earthly kings and royals. His kingdom was a different kingdom. The Messianic leadership model is the radical opposite of the Worlds leadership model. The Messiah said that all who wanted to be considered great, had to be willing to be a servant of them all. A Christian leader has to be willing to be a servant, and even to slog it out for the sheep he is looking after for Jesus. In many cases, willing to give up his Earthly life. To become a martyr.
As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered”
In the city where I live, the Catholics are treating the local Bishop as a local emperor. They have to request their local priest to seek an appointment to be able to present their case in a building that officially is called “The Bishops palace”.
Mark 9: 35
Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, “If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all.”
To use such an official term as “palace” for the residence and office of a Bishop, is another mockery against the Jewish Messiah. Because the Messiah did not live in palaces. Many times she slept in the open nature, and when he needed students, he elected them from the local fishermen. Not among the landowners, religious scholars and bankers of his day.
Lets take a look at two images from ancient Egypt, and compare them with the picture of Pope Pius XII.
The similarities are not only obvious. The Vatican is an exact copy.
Another amazing item inside the Vatican, is the Papal Throne. The Catholics in the US has even started to put chairs used by the Pope into crypts of Catholic Churches, to be adored, touched and made into relics. One of these chairs have been named “Papal throne”. It is the chair the Pope used during his visit to the US capital in 2008. The chair can be “venerated” inside the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC.
Lets take a look at two pictures from Washington DC.
If you do not believe me, please take a look at this link.
The present papal throne is located inside the dome of the Vatican. One of the pictures show a greater throne above the Pope, suppose to be an image of the throne in Heaven. The Heavenly throne is empty. I guess since the “Holy Father” is presently on Earth, presented by the Catholic Church as an infallible “god”.
Lets also take a look at how the thrones of the Egyptian kings looked like:
The Egyptian “pope” sits on his throne with his cross and his staff. His hat is like one of the hats of Catholic Bishops.
What to do with all this information?
Just say in your heart, that what the Vatican is doing is wrong. And if you feel the Papal system is doing wrong, start to support what is right. The truth shall set you free.
