Catholic Sex Orgies, Porn And Prostitution – Did God Try To Warn Us?

Revelation 17: Harlot of Babylon

Revelation 17: Harlot of Babylon

“Lurid accusations of priests involved in sex orgies, porn videos and prostitution have emerged from several parishes in Italy recently, sending shock waves all the way to the Vatican…” USA Today

What can we say? On one hand, we are speechless; on the other hand, volumes have been written and more could be said. Wisdom is looking at a topic from God’s perspective, so we consider some clues from the Bible.

The US Supreme Court has Moses as the central law-giver sculptured over its entrance. US pioneers revered the Bible and James Madison, author of the Constitution, said it was designed for a moral people, because of its minimal government—the idea was that we were supposed to government ourselves according to the Bible.

Turning from the Bible, human nature is like sand against the torrents and whims of passion and circumstance. When Moses gave the law, he asked, What great nation has statutes and judgments so righteous as this law? Deut 4:8  That law prescribed death for rape or adultery.

Jewish leaders tried to trap Christ in John 8 with a woman found “in the very act” but the Savior said, Let him that is without guilt cast the first stone, and they all knew their own guilt—some of them were responsible for leading that woman into sin.

From then till now, priests hearing confessions or pastors hearing the woes of women are vulnerable to feelings that develop for those who are abused and mistreated. The natural response is sympathy and support, and thin ice suddenly gets slippery, as judged by sad experiences of countless preachers and priests.

Some pastors understand and will only counsel a woman if his wife is with him or he is seeing the husband too. From the days of Deuteronomy, things were different. Every family had a home on land with enough ground for tilling and the family worked together in sowing and harvest as God prospered their land and family unity.

Israelites wore modest loose-fitting garments and men had untrimmed beards as a protection for the home. There was no Social Security from the government; it came from taking care of your kids wisely so they would take care of you in their old age. The 5th of the 10 Commandments showed our duty to our fellow men—in this case to parents. Respect for their authority leads us to respect all rightful authority which is failing today.

All of that changed when the industrial age brought men from the farm to the city to work regular hours, but it also broke up the family that previously worked and solved problems together. The loss wasn’t noticed initially because a good paycheck compensated. But fast-forward 100 years and we have huge problems of crime, sex, violence and poverty in cities that are like a cesspool magnet, and none of it was God’s plan.

The first murderer built the first city in Genesis 4, and in the ‘end-times’ survivalists say that population density is the #1 predictor of trouble. A used mobile home or camper in the country might be better than a mansion in the suburbs when trouble comes with rioting as people act out what they’ve seen on TV.

Were we warned? Christ said to flee when we see an abomination that early believers understood as the Roman army. Doing so spared the Christians who fled from Jerusalem prior to its destruction in 70 AD.

In 2015, we had the JADE HELM military drill (getting ready for martial law?) and Rome also came to the US Congress, and since then, things seem to be falling apart. We can hope in vain for leaders to solve the problems, or we can make ourselves responsible for getting out of harm’s way.

One of my teachers cited the Bible as a book on health and happiness as much as it is on religion. It is also a book for survival of what’s coming because God “declares the end from the beginning.” Revelation 17 depicts the church as a harlot riding the beast of New World Order. We could expect the pope to head the UN soon. Revelation’s harlot commits fornication with kings (governments)–all of this fits our headline. Was God trying to warn us?
