ETERNAL DAMNATION? Why should those in the Vatican assume that 'God' has a lower morality than a spiritually advanced human being?

The other related issue for urgent consideration by His Holiness and the cardinals is the Catholic teaching about 'eternal damnation'. Again, empirically elicited information through psychic mediumship shows this not to be correct. Whilst, empiricism supports the Church's teaching that there is a dark sphere - perhaps theologians' closest description is 'hell' - empiricists state that those who go to the lower dark realms are NOT condemned to stay in those horrible conditions for eternity.

Further, there is no Biblical authority for the doctrine of 'eternal damnation'. The problem exists because of intentional, fraudulent mistranslation of the word 'eon.' Historically, the word 'eon' never ever meant 'eternal.' The legitimate definition of the word 'eon' as used at the time of Jesus was a period of time. In Roman/Jesus times it meant the equivalent of one hundred years. A number of times in the Bible, 'eon' is properly translated as a period of time: blasphemy against the Spirit, "... shall not be forgiven either in this 'eon' or in that which is to come …" Further, in the parable of the sower, it is said that some seeds were choked with the cares of this 'eon' …Further still, in the parable of the tares among the wheat Christ explains that "… the harvest would be at the end of this eon …" Even in the passage from Saint Paul's Epistle to the Corinthians "We speak a wisdom not of this 'eon' nor of the rulers of this eon."

In all of these 'eon' was translated correctly to mean a period of time. But whenever 'eon' preceded some punishment, the ecclesiastic translators from the Greek version willfully and fraudulently misinterpreted 'eon' and incorrectly translated it to mean 'eternal.' For example, in Matthew 18:8 where it says, "If your hand or your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; it is better for you to enter life crippled or lame, than to have two hands or two feet and be cast into the eternal fire" the word that precedes 'fire' is 'Aionios' the adjective from "eon" as it is in Matthew 25:41, "Depart from me, ye cursed, into the eternal fire".

EX-PRIEST JOHANNES GREBER'S 'eternal damnation': Strangely enough, we are informed from the writings of a book by former Catholic priest, Johannes Greber - from which this has been taken, the original text of Matthew 18:8 did not even contain the word 'eon' but read "into the hell of fire" and Matthew 25:41 originally stated, "Depart from me, ye cursed, into the outer darkness." (1970; 379).

These are most spurious alterations which must be dealt with forthwith by His Holiness and the Vatican cardinals because they constitute wilful misrepresentation and fraud on a global level against mankind.

We must never accept that 'God' - where we are informed is all loving, all forgiving, omniscient, infallible, prescient and omnipotent - has 'inferior' morality than a spiritually advanced human being.

There will be universal acceptance that no informed human being will ever condemn another human being to 'eternal damnation' for what the Church calls a 'mortal sin' - even, technically, a one off 'mortal' sin - a transgression such as a one-off not attending Church on a Sunday or even one-off sex before marriage or even a one-off five minute what the Church calls 'adultery' with a divorcee.

I submit that the average intelligent Catholic is not accepting 'eternal damnation' and unless theology has substance and unquestioned credibility it will not survive and the Church will inevitably get deeper into crisis. It is on record now that fewer and fewer people around the world are attending Church on Sundays.

The time has come for the Church to accept that the teachings of eternal damnation is WRONG! Part of the Catholic Church's reformation must include a revision to remove any reference to eternal damnation. Those in power have huge responsibility and a heavy duty to do something about this very cruel teaching of eternal damnation by the Church.
