Dear Ones in Christ,
Today I watched a video documentary entitled, "Deliver Us from Evil." I was stunned by the time it ended. I was sick, angry, sad and so sorry for those precious, faithful Roman Catholics who believe with all their hearts that Rome, the pope, the eucharist and the Virgin Mary will guide them hopefully into heaven eventually. I saw the rage that swept over the shattered father when he realized that a visiting priest had violated his 5-year-old daughter while a guest at his house. It was devastating.
Back when Dr. Alberto Rivera was alive and worked with me on our "Alberto" series (Crusader comic books), he told me of the rampant homosexuality within the priesthood. I made reference to this and was soundly condemned by my brethren. Alberto also told me that one of his assignments as a Jesuit priest was to investigate "working priests." These were priests assigned to work in large factories to assist in spiritual guidance. On one occasion he was sent with a fellow Jesuit to Krakow, Poland and he was shocked to see the way the workers shamefully treated the priest. They threw their oily rags at him and made ugly comments. When Alberto confronted the workers for their disrespectful actions, he was told they hated him because they "couldn`t keep him away from our little boys!" Alberto said that the priest`s name was Wojtyla. He later became pope! I was speechless! Is it any wonder that this pope protected Cardinal Law and others involved in their sex scandal?
Beloved, the Bible is so right calling that institution "The Great Whore" in Revelation 17 & 18. We`ve tried our best to reach precious Roman Catholics, but we have had much resistance by many brethren who are Evangelicals, who have ignorantly embraced lost Roman Catholics as their brothers and sisters. This ecumenical movement makes it very hard to reach them for Christ.
Many have tried to discredit Alberto`s testimony, forcing Christian bookstores to stop selling The Alberto Series. But that has not stopped its power. We receive testimonies all the time from precious Roman Catholics who have gotten saved and come out of that bondage. Many would first get mad claiming that Alberto was attacking their religion.Then the Holy Spirit would open their eyes and draw them to the truth.
If you too watch "Deliver Us from Evil," you`ll see that what we printed was true. Hand out tracts like Why is Mary Crying?, Death Cookie, Last Rites and Are Roman Catholics Christians? Back them up with The Alberto Comics. Do your best to win precious Roman Catholics, to open their eyes and leave that wicked system, and come to a saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Your brother in Christ,
