Victim's message to pope: Our souls were 'murdered'
Wearing the dress she wore to her first communion and hands held together as if in prayer, the eight-year-old Therese Albrecht looks like a poster child for the Catholic Church.
The caption, which she added as an adult after years of depression, suicidal thoughts and psychiatric treatment, tells a different story: "Raped at age eight."
It is a striking image which Albrecht hopes will have made an impact on Pope Benedict XVI as he waved to thousands of well-wishers who lined the streets of Edinburgh, Scotland , on Thursday during the first papal state visit to the U.K. in nearly 500 years....
Colossians 2 20 If you have died with Christ to the elementary principles of the world, why, as if you were living in the world, do you submit yourself to decrees, such as, 21 "Do not handle, do not taste, do not touch!" 22 (which all refer to things destined to perish with the using)-- in accordance with the commandments and teachings of men? 23 These are matters which have, to be sure, the appearance of wisdom in self-made religion and self-abasement and severe treatment of the body, but are of no value against fleshly indulgence.---NASB
Geneva Bible Notes Colossians 2:23 wrote: .... From here sprang the works of supererogation, as the papists call them, that is to say, works that form a reserve fund of merit that can be drawn on in favour of sinners, as though men performed more than is commanded them: which was the beginning and the very ground upon which monk's merits were brought in. (h) A graphic description of monasticism. (i) Seeing they stand in meat and drink, in which the kingdom of God does not stand.
The PROTESTANT Church have been warning the nations about the Papal antichrist and his evil organisation now for 500 years - BUT they refuse to hear the truth.
What Satan is doing is tarnishing, defiling and disgracing the word "church" so that those outside the church will reject and condemn all who seek to go to church, and prevent others from seeking the Lord.
This however will not interfere with the Elect and salvation. Thanks only be to God.
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
