JP2 in Flames in the Afterlife

Is this an ironic claim or what (link)?

All humor aside, God alone knows the heart.

Since I don't pray to the dead, I don't have to worry about disembodied spirits trying to motion "stop" (cf. link).

But then again, if I didn't listen to Moses' prohibition of necromancy and idol-worship, I'm not going to believe if someone were raised from the dead.


P.S. I note that not all Roman Catholics are equally enthused (link).

I remember reading a book written by a former priest (Italian) who got saved here in my country, the Philippines. (He is now a missionary from Conservative Baptist International.) He had served as a rector of Roman Catholic seminaries. After reading the Bible for himself, he found out that the religion he was in was a false one. His book narrates his journey and explains the reasons why Roman Catholicism is false. He spent many pages showing from Scripture that the alleged apparitions of Mary were not of God. I remember him using this passage from the Bible.

"13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds."

I think the same admonition applies to the those who believe in the "appearance" of JP II.

Thanks for the post. :)

There is alot of "voodoo" in Catholicism.

I have a book out now from the library, I forget the title but it's a Question/Answer book from some guys from EWTN. There is some weird stuff in there towards the end that I had never heard of - eventually I will get it posted.

Oh I forgot. The verse passage was from 2 Corinthians 11:13-15 (NASB).

There is a lot of "voodoo" in Catholicism? Wow.

We can start with relics and stigmatas...

Digging up dead bodies to remove parts for veneration? Not exactly mainstream stuff.
