Rivera a suposed ex-jesuit is a favourite of fundy Baptists as is Jack Chick. Curiously Rivera's name is frequently mentioned in the threads as a major witness on the things of Rome.
Banned mentioned Rivera because he in the Chick comics says Rome invented Islam. Curiously a number of Baptists believe that and that IS fishy!
"the corroborating testimony provided by Dr. Gerard Bouffard a high ranking bishop born in Quebec, Canada rose from lower levels of his orders to become an assistant for many years to Popes such as Paul VI and John Paul II. Converted to protestantism and claims he was the man who received the order to eleminate Rivera"
"Dr. Bouffards testimony is heartwarming and very moving he truly is another Paul of our times. Dr. Bouffard has since been converted to the Gospel of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and gives his testimony of conversion as the Lord leads him."
Said Jack Chick
If Bouffard is quote: 'another Paul of our times' why isn't his conversion testimony on protestant websites seeing though he served popes etc-possibly the best RC conversion testimony today?
Rivera and Bouffard his only corroborator are wolves in sheeps clothing as is Jack Chick.
I leave these posts for Rivera's disciples to take heed!
a documentary called Unveiling the Mystery Behind Catholic Symbols, Bouffard shows a fancy 18-carat gold plated pen containing a special disappearing ink with which the Holy Office authorities sign top secret documents. He claims, "With this pen that I am holding, I signed the order to kill Dr. Rivera".
Bouffard is the supposed RC priest I mentioned earlier once promoted by Chick- interestingly not now one of the RC's on chicks site testifying of Rivera-why?
America's greatest supporter of Rivera after Chick came up with:
("They have the proof and so do I. It was given to me by Gerard Buffard when he worked in the Holy Office while a priest in the 1960s. Although it has several grammatical mistakes as detailed by my ex-Jesuit editor, I believe it to be a true death warrant against Alberto issued in 1965 after his speeech in Guatemala. The grammatical errors, I believe, are intentional so that if ever made public, it could be discredited as a forgery - a most cunning tactic I must say. Rivera's name is even misspelled. It has the seals of the Holy Office on it and I believe it not to be a forgery. Unfortunately I am not permitted to put it up on the web as this was the condition upon which Gerard gave me the document.")
Please supply some proven evidence that Rivera was indeed a Jesuit Priest, the bible tell us to seek two or three witnesses. You will find you won't find anything except the ridiculous claims of Rivera's own lips and also that from another supposed former RC priest who just so happened to be the priest who held the very 'magic' pen that signed Rivera's death warrant but was later 'amazingly' converted hearing Rivera. Your knowledge of Rivera comes from Chick's comic books and from Rivera's fantasy writings. Rivera couldn't read/translate latin yet found himself in the vatican library according to his comic fiction-reading secret ancient RC documents-how? Magic spectacles that translated such into spanish or english?
The converted priest/charlatan who signed the death warrant-well I had his email address and he never did respond to the facts that he was never a priest in South America.
I could give you the information but I suspect you are deceived by the man, so simply ask you to contact Don Blanton who worked for Rivera and can supply you with documented proof that Rivera is a fraud. Taked Heed that NO MAN DECEIVE YOU!
Examine the evidence for yourself-it is all there for you to refute-but I kindly assure you that you will not be able to do so. Take heed.
Romans 11:25 "For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that BLINDNESS IN PART is HAPPENED to Israel, UNTIL the fulness of the Gentiles be come in."
Rom 11:20 "Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, THAT I MIGHT be graffed in. 20. Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. BE NOT HIGHMINDED, but FEAR: 21. For if God spared not the natural branches, TAKE HEED lest he also spare not thee."
