7 Christians Jailed for Refusing to Convert to ... Catholicism
International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that seven Evangelical Christians in Chiapas, Mexico, were incarcerated on December 15 after refusing to convert to Catholicism. State and federal authorities had been informed of threats to illegally expel or incarcerate members of the Evangelical community weeks in advance but have refused to intervene.
The imprisonment comes as the culmination of an ultimatum that was given by local officials of Leyva Velazques, a municipality of Las Margaritas, Chiapas, to the local Evangelical community to convert to Catholicism, leave the village, or face prison.
According to Luis Herrera, Director of the Coordination of Christian Council of Churches, eight families in the village have succumbed to the ultimatum and signed documents indicating their conversion to Catholicism. Mexico's Constitution explicitly protects the right of all citizens to profess...

Islam, Sodomites and the wicked all oppose GOD, and HIS people. Look, where freedom of opinion is greatest and Satan doesn't have to hide his intentions, Sodomites and Muslims will unite against Catholics. Why? Simple

There is no similarity whatsoever between Islam and the Catholic Church. Islam worships Satan otherwise known as Allah whereas the Catholic Church worships the biblical and historical Jesus as God. The Mexican Constitution guarantees everybody the right to practice whatever faith they choose. So those Protestants being jailed in Mexico for refusing to convert to Roman Catholicism is against the Mexican Constitution.
To SPIRITUALLY LOST SATANIC~VATICAN "JESUITS", "JESUITICS" & ALL ANTI-BIBLICAL-LITERALISTS:
GOD SAYS IN THE TRUE HOLY BIBLE:
"When MEN Strive Together ONE With ANOTHER, And The WIFE Of The ONE Draweth Near For To Deliver HER HUSBAND Out Of The Hand Of HIM THAT SMITETH HIM, And PUTTETH FORTH HER HAND, AND TAKETH HIM BY THE SECRETS ('SECRET PARTS', 'PRIVY MEMBER[S]', 'STONES', ETC.):
THEN THOU SHALT *CUT OFF* HER HAND, THINE EYE SHALL NOT PITY HER."-DEUTERONOMY 25:11-12
*MOSES*, IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, SAID TO "CUT OFF HER HAND" & HE *DIDN'T* MEAN ALLEGORICALLY, FIGURATIVELY OR METAPHORICALLY:
HE MEANT IT *LITERALLY* !
& SO DOES ***THE LORD JESUS CHRIST***:
GOD IN THE FLESH-1 Timothy 3:16 !
As GOD-/-CHRIST Said NOT ONCE Or TWICE; BUT *THRICE*:
"And If THY RIGHT HAND Offend THEE, CUT IT OFF, And Cast IT From THEE: For It Is PROFITABLE For THEE THAT ONE OF THY MEMBERS SHOULD PERISH, And NOT That THY WHOLE BODY Should Be CAST Into HELL."-MATTHEW 5:30
"And If THY HAND Offend THEE, CUT IT OFF: It Is BETTER For THEE To Enter Into Life MAIMED, Than Having TWO HANDS To GO INTO HELL, INTO THE FIRE THAT NEVER SHALL BE QUENCHED."-MARK 9:43
"AND IF THY FOOT OFFEND THEE, *CUT IT OFF*..."-MARK 9:45 !
"Rabbinic"-Judaism STILL Struggles With DEUT. 25:11-12 TODAY !

My first memories are of going to church in 77, then my brother died in car accident that year and mum would take me to sda worship on sat and dad made me go to Sunday morning church as he was a Roman catholic, him and my brother died unsaved Roman Catholics. So I went to the bible like a fool 30 odd years later expecting to find contradictions and inconsistencies, well I still can't believe that picking up that king James bible I was and still am absolutely awestruck! Many on that day shall say Lord Lord , So many will acknowledge him and be turned away, honestly I feel blessed even being aware of God Jesus and the Holy Spirit and his kingdom and love, Thankyou Jesus.
Thanks for the testimony, dear brother. It is always good to hear how Jesus has transformed His saints!

Rev 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. Rev 13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
Heard a lecture recently that spoke of the two horns of the above mention beast that had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon, that stated the horns represented the ecclesiastical and civil branches of the Papal hierarchy, (white pope/black pope).
Some time ago now sa ran an article of a meeting of humanist Jesuits in Ireland this was before the white pope retired. After which time, they (cardinals) worshiped whom they created (next pope) the article came to my recall.
The Texas Revolution had its mooring in General Santa Anna's desire to wipe out any vestige of Anglo Protestantism in Texas Brazos River area and surrounding country. (Bet that's not taught in history books.) Just read about the massacre of Golliad or the Alamo to see that the victims bodies were mutilated and burned by the Mexican army, By all accounts, Santa Anna was hoping to ignite a race war, and the idea of Reconquesta is still a hope for some.
I have seen some documentaries on the Jesuit order in which a novitiate takes a vow to divide and destroy Protestants. In a figurative sense-one hand holds an olive branch while the other hand holds a sword. Is this still true today-in these times? Also, I came across the term "Black Pope".
But before we get too hard on a Catholic church let us not forget that European church history in the last 500 years has been a pretty bloody one. Pretty much only the the Anabaptist movement does not have blood on it's hands. For them church membership has been voluntary from the start. At least Zwingli's Reformed church in Zurich Switzerland recently formally apologized for their persecution against the Anabaptists in 16th and 17th century. Anabaptists by the way were the first to call for the separation of church and state, something we all take for granted today.
Wow, They're Lucky They Weren't KILLED ON THE SPOT; As, The IMMEDIATE DEATH OF ALL "PROTESTANTS" &-OR "HERETICS" IN MEXICO--ESPECIALLY IN RURAL AREAS--IS A WELL KNOWN FACT: ESPECIALLY AMONGST GENUINE-REAL-TRUE PROTESTANT-CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL-LITERALIST EVANGELICALS &-OR FUNDAMENTALISTS !
Don't Forget Folks, My Very Own UNCLE--HERE IN THE CHICAGOLAND AREA--HAS BEEN WORKING WITH THE EVIL "JESUITS" FOR SEVERAL DECADES NOW: PUSHING &-OR PIMPING THE MEXICAN-SPANISH FORM OF POST-TRENTAN SATANIC~VATICAN ROMAN-"CATHOLICISM"; WITH ALL IT'S EVIL & DIABOLICAL "QUEEN OF HEAVEN"-"ASHTEROTH"-"MOTHER OF GOD" WORSHIP &-OR ***MARYOLATRY-IDOLATRY*** !
JUST READ THE TESTIMONY OF BR.-DR. ***ALBERTO RIVERA*** OF "CHICK-TRACTS" PUBLICATION FAME; AND YOU'LL GET JUST A LITTLE TASTE OF WHAT REAL SPANISH-MEXICAN SATANIC~VATICANISM &-OR ROMAN-"CATHOLICISM" IS REALLY ALL ABOUT ! ! !
As You Should Know, Yesterday 12-17-15 Was My HOLY-BIBLICAL-/-HOLY-SPIRITUAL BIRTHDAY:
AS ON DEC. 17, 1975, AT APPROX. 9:00 PM: I WAS ***BORN-AGAIN*** SPIRITUALLY ACCORDING TO THE TRUE HOLY BIBLE'S (THE KING JAMES HOLY BIBLE'S) ST. JOHN CHAPTER 3:1-16:
"MARVEL NOT THAT I (JESUS CHRIST: GOD MANIFEST IN THE FLESH) SAID UNTO THEE: YE MUST BE ***BORN AGAIN*** (**NOT**, 'YE MUST BE WATER-BAPTIZED')."--JOHN 3:7 ! ! !
