The purpose of Points to
About is to stimulate thinking that would draw the disoriented
Faithful back to God (1)
and away from the hypocritical duplicity of some religious
institutions which are destroying the little faith left on earth (2) (3).
The instructions are simple: Just invoke the illumination of
Holy Spirit of God while you ponder upon any of these Points to Ponder and let God guide
you to Light. We know that some make-believe religious leaders will
say: "What about satan interfering
and leading the soul astray?" To those... we invoke Our Lord's
the behind me, Satan: the art an offense unto me: for the severest
not the things that be of God, but those that be of men." [Matthew 16:23]
say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and yea shall find;
knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that sketch
receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it
shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a
father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a
fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer
him a scorpion? If ye
then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how
much more shall
your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the
kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither
suffer ye them that are entering to go in." [Matthew 23:13]

ever wonder... why if God was very
specific when He instructed Moses:
3 Thou shalt not have strange gods before
4 Thou shalt not make to thyself a graven
thing, nor the likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or in the
earth beneath, nor of those things that are in the waters under the
5 Thou shalt not adore them, nor serve
them: [Exodus 20]
an order which has caused the Jews and Muslims recoil before any of the
icons and statues that may be found in the practice of the Catholic
Faith, yet, later on, God Himself, instructed Moses, just as clearly, to:
8 And the Lord said to him: Make brazen serpent, and
set it up for a sign: whosoever being struck shall look on it, shall
9 Moses therefore made a brazen serpent,
and set it up for a sign: which when they that were bitten looked upon,
they were healed. [Number
Doesn't this appear to be a serious Divine contradiction? Well, if one
had studied what we published regarding Biblical Literalism Part I and
one could answer thus:
is no lack of coherence. God has nothing against a graven image -
it is the worshiping of the graven image - as many Catholics do even
though is contrary to the basic teachings of Catholicism - that is
against the basic Law of God.
What God was doing here with the brazen
serpent was teaching us how to venerate a crucifix (not just a cross
but a crucifix). Allow us to explain:
The Israelites sinned against God; God
sent poisoned serpents which started biting and killing the Israelites
as punishment - the consequence of their sins; Moses intervenes with
God and God instructs him to make brazen serpent, and
set it up for a sign.... which
when they that were bitten looked upon, they were healed.
Now, millennia later, Jesus is
crucified and we have a crucifix to remind us of the crucifixion and of
His wounds. Wounds caused by our sins. Therefore, when we look at
that crucifix and lovingly remember that He is there because of our
sins, then we start becoming spiritually healed for.... it is through His wounds that we may be
Perfect coherence - through and through.

ever wonder... what is the difference between "store bought faith"
(Intellectual Faith) and real faith - a gift that only God can give and
no man can take away? Review the letter posted in Public Forum II
July 24th - you will find the answer there.
We sincerely thank the writer of the above referenced letter which
appears in Public Forum II for her permission to publish it - a letter
which is a living beacon to those who wish to understand what real
Faith is all about.

ever wonder... why dog fighting and cock fighting are illegal, yet
human fighting - boxing and wrestling - are perfectly legal and quite
profitable, even though they can be quite harmful to humans?
Because man, without God, is inherently stupid. See the below
posting for additional illumination on this matter and how natural
selection will take care of this recurring problem.

We have shown that both Galileo and the
Roman Church were both
right. We have also shown that the theory of Evolution cannot
exist without the Theory of Creation - and vice versa.
Now we will show that the Survival of the Fittest (or Natural
will be confirmed, and totally fulfilled, at the
End of These Times.
Only the Elect will not
be deceived at the End of These Times; and, as we well know, the
"Elect" are the "Blessed" Jesus spoke of when He said:
3 Blessed are the poor in
spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are the meek: for they shall
possess the land.
5 Blessed are they that mourn: for they
shall be comforted. 6 Blessed are they that hunger and thirst
after justice: for they shall have their fill.
7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall
8 Blessed are the clean of heart: for they
shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they
shall be called children of God.
10 Blessed are they that suffer persecution
for justice' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. [Matthew 5]
What makes man, any man, "the fittest" is when he has the holy Spirit
of God in his heart, which makes him "blessed". Everyone else will be
razed, no matter how "fit" they may be using world fitness measuring
devices - including
which religion they may profess, if any!
This is what we call Supernatural
Selection as opposed to Darwin's Natural Selection.
"Let the clowns march in.... and we
shall show them the way out!"
(1) Survival of
the fittest is a phrase which is a shorthand for a concept relating to
competition for survival or predominance. Originally applied by Herbert
Spencer in his Principles of Biology of 1864, Spencer drew parallels to
his ideas of economics with Charles Darwin's theories of evolution by
what Darwin termed natural selection.
The phrase is a metaphor, not a scientific description; and it is not
generally used by biologists, who almost exclusively prefer to use the
phrase "natural selection".

reason not to "...command
fire to come down from
and consume them" is because "them"
be the only ones who will help you.
A certain man went
down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among
robbers, who also stripped him, and having wounded him went away,
leaving him half dead.
And it chanced, that a certain priest went down the same way: and
seeing him, passed by.
32 In like manner also a Levite, when he was
near the place and saw him, passed by.
33 But a certain Samaritan being on his
journey, came near him; and seeing him, was moved with compassion.
And going up to him, bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and
wine: and setting him upon his own beast, brought him to an inn, and
took care of him.
35 And the next day he took out two pence,
and gave to the
host, and said: Take care of him; and whatsoever thou shalt spend over
and above, I, at my return, will repay thee. [Luke 10]
As the saying goes: "We wish 'Good luck!'" on those who are trusting
their salvation to the
priests and Levites of the kind who "command fire to come down from
heaven to consume those who do not think like them."
Should they be counting on "blind" Divine Mercy to "patch up" their
convenient oversights, we recommend a careful review of Divine Mercy In

ever wonder... how it will look if we prove - using their own official
documents, ancient and current - that Jesus unequivocally condemned
most of the actions of the Catholic Church Administration since the 4th
This will certainly be the test of whether you believe in God or
believe in an institution twisted to suit
agendas and not the
Divine Agenda it was set up to fulfill. Keep in mind - we are not
talking about the Faith, which
we uphold; we are talking about the
we denounce, yes denounce, in the Name of God.

ever wonder why.... when, faced with a problem and you
in peace with the knowledge that all is in His Control and that all
will turn out exactly as He means for it to, yet, at the end, the
scenery may look like it was hit by an unrelenting tornado and all
before your eyes is rubble?
Because we must remember the "two Wills" of God - the Active Will
and the Passive Will
In the Active Will
discerned the Will of God
and carried on in accordance
to it. In the case the results will be perfect and the effort and
suffering will have been minimized throughout.
In the Passive Will
has realized that only by
raising "the Volume"
the individual will
learn what he/she must before "The End".
Therefore, "The End" will be indeed what God intended it to be - Heaven
or Hell, but
, if it is Heaven,
I much rather stroll as much of the way as possible refreshed
with a glass of iced tea in my hand and rejoicing over the successes
achieved for the Glory of God in the journey, and not

ever wonder.... why organized religion - from the one practiced by the
Maya, the Egyptians, the Roman Catholics, the Jews, etc. - has such a
tight and controlling grip on their followers (believers)?
Because institutional codependency functions just that a one-to-one
codependency, except it is far more destructive.
Codependency is only good when "the other one" is God - just like John
Bosco preached and lived for over forty years under the nose of the
Vatican, yet, without Rome ever catching on....

anyone who has any sense and intellectual sensitivity, can ascertain
that even the news that we see and read every day do not depict the

ever wonder.... what if your name is not in the
Book of Life? You
should not worry about it. That is God's business and as St. Teresa de
Jesus (de Avila) said in her poem "Vuestra Soy" ("I am Yours"), and for
which miguel de Portugal vouches:
Dadme infierno o dadme
cielo, (Give me hell or give me Heaven)
Vida dulce, sol sin
(Sweet life, Sun without veil)
Pues del todo me
(I have surrendered myself totally)
mandáis hacer de mí? (What is you want to do with me?)
at the end we read
soy, para Vos nací, (I am Yours, for You I was born)
¿Qué mandáis hacer de
mí? (What is you want to do with me?)
Keep your eyes focused in abandoning
yourself to the Will of God, and worry not about anything else!
on June 3rd, 2007
ever wonder.... why, man makes such an issue of learning about history
and archeology as well as paleontology when none of what is learned is
used to avert the repetition of the past, over and over again? Because
man talks about God but does
not engage Him in his activities.
As Jesus said through Mark 10:27 With men it is impossible; but not with
God: for all things are possible with God.
If man had made God
part of his life - not part of his talk - we would have learned
our mistakes and would have advanced without what is to come

applicable in the Old Testament became null and void in the New

of the hardness of
your heart, permitted you to put away your wives: but from the

ever wonder.... why, in general, our prayers are offered in the first
person plural form (we, our, us)? The answer lies in our document
explaining man's role in
the Salvation of Mankind. However, there
is no harm, from time to time personalizing a prayer for greater personal impact
(how that works, we know, thus our statement, but is not for us to
discuss here and now). For example, the Our Father certainly
feels different when prayed thus:
Father Who art in Heaven
hallowed be Thy Name
may Thy kingdom come
may Thy Will be done on earth as it
is in Heaven
Give me this day my daily bread
forgive my sins as I forgive those
who trespass against me
and do not let me fall prey to temptation
and deliver me from

ever wonder.... what brought upon the terrible plagues of the Dark and
Middle Ages which decimated the Christian population of Europe (i.e. the Black
Death of 1348-1350 which killed about 1/3 of Europe) while in many cases inflicting little direct [but
plenty of indirect (*)] damage
to the Jewish communities?
Another misunderstanding of the teachings of Jesus, specifically when
responded to the scribes and Pharisee's question: Why do thy
disciples transgress the tradition of the ancients? For they wash not
their hands when they eat bread. [Matthew 15:2]
on May 11th, 2007
ever wonder.... what Jesus meant when He said to the women, who bewailed and lamented him as He carried
His cross to calvary: For if in the green wood they do these
things, what shall be done in the dry? [Luke 23:31]
He meant that if the Word of God walking amongst men (green
wood) was rejected in such manner, what was going to happen when He
would not be walking amongst us, that is when it "were in the dry" (dry
We can look back in history and see what happened in the world as "it
dried" and is now practically rejected - which is why He then said,
referring to the End of
These Times: 28...
Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not over me; but weep for yourselves, and
for your children.
29 For behold, the days shall come, wherein
they will say:
Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that have not borne, and the paps
that have not given suck.

mountains: Fall upon us; and to the hills: Cover us

This is why St.
Paul underscored it.
on May 8th, 2007
ever wonder why... if the Successor of Peter is chosen by the Holy
Spirit of God, acting through the Cardinals in the Conclave, there is
never 100 % agreement amongst the Cardinals?
Being that there is never such level of agreement, we must assume that
some of the
are deaf to the prompting of the Holy Spirit of
God; in which case, how can anyone trust a Church Administrator of that
level, when not even the Holy Spirit of God can get through to them
with the right information? What if the one elected voted for someone
else than himself?
No, this is not anti
Catholicism; this is to point out the absolutely ridiculous
traditions which the Faithful has become a slave to. This brings to
mind what Jesus told the Church Administrators of His time which we can
all read in Matthew 23 and Luke 11
Perhaps the way it should have been done is: Bishops elected by his
then, Bishops elect the Successor of Peter. Of course, this is just a
moot point. It is too late now.
on May 6th, 2007
ever wonder... why Jesus, who must have been as perfect a boy and son
as anyone could possibly imagine, stayed at the Temple of Jerusalem
[Luke 2: 41-50] chatting with the doctors of the Law - apparently
defying Mary and Joseph's authority?
The answer may be found when one reads Luke 2: 41-42: And his parents went every year to
Jerusalem, at the solemn day of the pasch, and when he was twelve
years old, they going up into Jerusalem, according to the custom of the
feast, and having fulfilled the days, when they returned....
one remembers that the copyists of the Sacred Scriptures, under order
of their masters, tried every possible angle to remove Jesus identity
as a Jew.
Most likely they took advantage of that visit to Jerusalem to mark
Jesus' Bar Mitzvah.
According to Jewish law, when Jewish children reach
the age of maturity (12 years for girls, 13 years for boys) they become
responsible for their actions. At this point a boy is said to become
Bar Mitzvah (Hebrew: "one to whom the commandments apply," or
literally, son of the commandment); a girl is said to become Bat
Mitzvah ("one to whom the commandments apply," or literally,
daughter of the commandment)
age, all the child's responsibility to follow Jewish law and tradition
lies with the parents. After this age, the children are privileged to
participate in all areas of Jewish community life and bear their own
responsibility for Jewish ritual law, tradition, and ethics.
We understand that the Scripture states that Jesus was 12 years old and
according to what we read above He should have been 13, but let us not
split hairs - after all, Jesus was born on 4 B.C. What gives away the
possible cover up of Jesus' Jewish identity by the copyists is that
"...he said to them: How is it that
you sought me? did you not know, that I must be about my father's
business?" [Luke 2: 42]
That is the most logical explanation for his apparent strange behavior
at disobeying Mary and Joseph: Once Jesus " became
responsible for His actions" - "one to whom the
commandments apply," or literally, son of the commandment. Also Before this age, all the child's
responsibility to follow Jewish law and tradition lies with the
parents. After this age, the children are privileged to participate in
all areas of Jewish community life and bear their own responsibility
for Jewish ritual law, tradition, and ethics.
on May 4th, 2007
ever wonder... why, of the major religions of the world, Christianity
seems to be the most persecuted religion since the French Revolution
Quite simple.... As we approach the End of
These Times (not
world) satan is fully aware that his activities in the world will be
severely curtailed. He also knows that Christianity, most
specially the Catholic Faith, contains the key elements to minimize
humanity's suffering as it navigates through these
times and, since his
objective is to make The Elect suffer as much as possible (for he
cannot cause a soul to be lost), he has to attack in all fronts and
with full force.
Of course, he
can certainly count with the Vatican in his effort to
make Christianity dismissed and/or hated by more and more of humanity -
after all, they know each other's face, don't they?
