The financial Inquisition is under way in Greece!
Since 1453, the Greeks were threatened with extermination by the Terrible Turks. The Trojan horse ecumenical movement has replaced the Terrible Turks.
The 40-plus years of the Trojan horse ecumenical movement has failed to capture Orthodox Greece for the Papacy. Only the lawful Italian government in Rome has an embassy in Athens.
It is IMPOSSIBLE for the Greeks to join the Church of Rome because of 4 deadly errors of the Latin Papacy:
Orthodoxy also rejects the idea of purgatory or a second chance to be saved after death.
Orthodoxy has nothing comparable to the sophisticated spying system known as the Latin confessional.
Greek Orthodoxy also forbids pagan cremation so there is absolutely no possibility that light can have fellowship with darkness.
Orthodoxy also forbids the use of images. Instead of images they allow the use of one dimensional icons.
No such position as PRIEST in the Greek Orthodox Church!!
There are no PRIESTS in the Greek Orthodox Church. A priest in English is called a presbyter (elder) in Greek. Saint Paul told Titus to ordain presbyters in every city:
The Vulgate is the only Version recognized by the Latin Church. Here is that same verse from the Vulgate:
The 1582 Douay-Rheims Version is an authorized English translation of the Vulgate. The 1611 King James translators copied copiously from that translation and the word Priest or Priests occurs almost 1,000 times in the English translation.
Here is that verse from the Douay-Rheims:
The Hebrew word for the person who offered sacrifices to JEHOVAH was KOHEN, and since there is no comparable word for that office in any other language, you have to borrow that word from the Hebrew.
Zeus had his pagan priests centuries before Christianity. At Lystra, Saint Paul healed a crippled man who was begging in front of the temple or EKKLESIA of Zeus:
The Douay-Rheims Version calls a pagan sacristan of Zeus/Jupiter a priest:
Here is that verse in Spanish:
Here is that verse from the 1534 Saint William Tyndale translation. The temple of Zeus was called an ekklesia in Greek, and ekklesia is translated as CHURCH in the Douay-Rheims and the King James Version.
Technically, there are no BISHOPS in the Greek Orthodox Church. The Latin Vulgate episcopis, meaning overseer, is also mistranslated as bishop in the Douay-Rheims . . . and all other English Versions.
These innovations began to be added about the time of Jerome’s Latin Vulgate. The only hope of East-West ecclesiastical unity is for the Vatican to abandon or throw overboard the accumulated errors of centuries and return to the Faith of the Apostles Peter and Paul.
Financial coercion has replaced the ecumenical movement in Greece!!
British secret agent Adolf Hitler invaded Greece on April 9,1941. As usual, the Greeks fought the invaders like HEROES, and the launching of Operation Barbarossa was delayed until June 22, 1941.
Thanks to Russia . . . Nazi Germany is no more . . . so the British cannot repeat that scenario today….Due to the failure of the ecumenical movement in Greece, the Bank of England is using financial coercion to destroy Orthodox Greece.
Greece is the only country in the world where the Orthodox Church is still a formidable force. Most of the other Orthodox countries were under Communism for decades and the Communists did their utmost to destory Orthodoxy.
The greatest contribution that the Greek Church made to true Christianity was the preservation of the Word of God.
Copies of the original version of the Septuagint existed until around 1170 A.D. The Latin Crusaders destroyed all the remaining copies.
The Septuagint was the work of 70 Hebrew scholars working in Alexandria, Egypt, around 285 B.C. If we add that date to 1170 A.D., the time period is around 1450 years—almost as long as the Hebrew nation was in existence.
Though the Greeks have great respect for Holy Scripture, and have nothing like the corrupt Latin Vulgate, they still add man made traditions to the Scriptures….Infant baptism, prayers to the “Mother of God”, use of icons etc., etc., are all non-apostolic innovations which were added about the time of Emperor Constantine.
The name JESUS comes from the Latin Vulgate and entered the English language via French and Spanish. Subsequently, the name was spread around the world by the 1611 King James Version of the Bible . . . and the British Empire.
The name of the Messiah in English is JOSHUA of Nazareth transliterated from the Hebrew JEH-HO-SHUA-AH.
For the first 3 centuries of Christianity, nobody made images of the Son of God . . . or prayed to any “Mother of God.”
The Romans claimed descent from the Greeks and they borrowed all the Greek pagan pantheon. Zeus became Jupiter at Rome and Athena became the “virgin” Minerva. Only the names of false gods (like Allah) change from language to language.
If the Greeks had copyrighted and charged a fee for the use of the image of their god Zeus or goddess Athena. . . they would be richer than the legendary King Cresus….If the Greeks insisted on just a fraction of “Peter’s Pence” they would be the lender to the entire world!!
The Orthodox Church is an integral part of the Greek state!!
The Orthodox Church is a vital part of the Greek state and plays a pivotal role in the daily life of that nation. However, Orthodoxy does not have an Inquisition and does not try to DOMINATE or lord it over the state:
Out of a population of 11,000,000, almost 10,000,000 people belong to the Orthodox Church of Greece.
Such a huge population of Orthodox believers right in the backyard of the Vatican gives the Jesuit general nightmares.
The Euro was created to destroy Orthodox Greece!!
The Euro is an attempt by the Militia of Zeus and Minerva to financially destroy Orthodox Greece.
Monetary unions of different countries never work because of the different languages and culture in each country. A vital part of sovereignty is the power to issue currency. Take away that right and the country might as well be invaded by a foreign army—as Greece was by the Nazis in 1941.
The Bible says that Antichrist will compel all to receive his mark and that coercion will take place through the instrumentality of mundane things like buying and selling or simply making a living:
According to the infallible Scriptures, economic coercion to take the Mark of the Beast will not just be limited to Greece . . . but will be worldwide . . . just before the end of time.
