Ex - Jehovah's Witnesses, who are now members of the Catholic Church, share their personal stories



Translated from original by Alexia Kriniti


For the readers to better understand the following testimonies of former Jehovah's Witnesses, first it is necessary to realise that the members of this sect live an essentially different life from the rest of us and not in a positive way, as Jehovah's Witnesses like to believe. The lives of Jehovah's Witnesses, religious and spiritual, professional, personal and social, are completely identified with their heretical religion. They work only with their fellow believers and they rent houses also only from their fellow believers. They support each other in their professional activity; for example, if a "brother" has a bakery, other Jehovah's Witnesses are buying their bread from him. Above all, they spend too many hours together: they are obliged to attend weekly meetings, which add up to a total of nearly 7 hours! In pairs or more, depending on the case, they do the weekly public preaching or the door-to-door ministry...

What they were thinking about the stars and demons, in the years of Jesus



Translated from the original by Costas Balomenos


S
everal times the Gospel recounts us Jesus to heal people who were under the possession of evil spirits. Christ imparted this privilege and this ability to his disciples when he sent them two by two to preach. Of course, apart from the daemonical there were and others with various mental illnesses, but that was something foreign to the Jews and also to all ancient peoples. For this reason, moreover, they believed that they too belonged to the category of those who were possessed by evil spirits...

CANONIZATION IN THE EAST AND WEST CHURCH



Translated from the original by Costas Balomenos


Father Paisius, who “canonized” by the Eastern Church


I
n the first Christian community, as we know mainly from the letters of the Apostle Paul, all who were baptized in the name of Holy Trinity were called "saints," not because they were righteous, but because they were baptized, i.e. is because they belonged to this particular new community (church) and were members of the body of Christ: "I send my greetings to the saints of the Church of Corinth", "I send my greetings to the saints of the Ephesian Church". So everybody was holy. Holiness, therefore, is potentially present, and simultaneously has a dynamic...

The historical origins of the Filioque


Translated from the original by Costas Balomenos


As is known, the two most determinant factors that were the cause to become the schism in the Christian Church and thus be divided into East and West, have been the "papal primacy", i.e. the claim of the Pope of Rome to be recognized by all as visible head of the Church and delegate of Christ on earth and to have the authority over the other Churches and «Filioque». But what does it mean «Filioque»; The word is Latin. Is a compound word consisting of Filius = son and que = and, and all together mean "and from the Son".  It is mentioned from whom emanates the Holy Spirit. But let's be more detailed and therefore more understandable...

THE HUMAN REDEMPTION ACCORDING THE HINDUISM

Translated from the original by Costas Balomenos



The continuous and eternal wheel of reincarnations, from which the faithful of Hinduism wishes to escape

Hinduism is the traditional religion of India and that is why is not mentioned its founder. It consists of a hodgepodge of religious and philosophical systems, which start from a naive animism (i.e. all have life), continue in a labyrinthine polytheism with hundreds of thousands of Gods and Goddesses and end up not only in monotheism, but frequently and in atheism!...

Translated from the original by Costas Balomenos


As is well known, Karl Marx, the "father" of Communism, said the famous phrase that "the religion is the opium of the people", that is used by the ruling class to lulls the masses and keeps them pauperized. It is therefore the debt of Communists, when they will be able and they will seize power, to eliminate this "opium", releasing the people, to lead him to happiness that will be held through Communism...

Simon Bar-Kokhba : The Messiah of the Jews

Translated from the original by Costas Balomenos


The relief of Bar – Kokhba adorns Knesset (Jewish Parliement)

For entire centuries the Jews were nurtured in the idea that they are the chosen one people of God, to whom God will send his divine Messiah, to redeem him from evil and death and so begin a new era for them, but also for all humanity.
And indeed, when God decided, he sent his Messiah in the person of Christ Jesus, which the Jews not only did not recognized and did not accepted, but they proceeded much more, exterminating him by death on the cross, a crime for which the Jewish authorities pioneered...
