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.
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".
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
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
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.
