“FOURTH STEP,” MADE A SEARCHING AND FEARLESS MORAL INVENTORY OF OURSELVES.
We’ve been on a long journey, unveiling the “Fourth Step,” a searching and fearless moral inventory of the triune God, (God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit). We pioneered an extraction of every reproach; every blameworthy reason one might think of to fault God for every dark area of his/her life; barrenness, fatherless, motherless, rape, addiction, homosexuality, sickness, disease, injury, death, murder, poverty, hunger, famine, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanoes . . . . Did I miss anything???
Fearlessly and morally we intend to continue exploring God’s Word in opposition to mere man. The man perceived as the “holiest man” on earth, the Pope; the “Holy See,” his Priests, Cardinals, Nuns, et. Al. Consequently, some of you learned for the first time in more recent post, God’s Word says . . .“THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE . . .”(Romans 3:10)
WARN THE WICKED THEY WILL DIE . . .
“When I say to the wicked, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn him or speak out to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. Yet if you have warned the wicked and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered yourself.” (Ezekiel 3:18-19)(Bold added)(Italics added)(Underline added)
“Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” (Gen 6:5)
“But, the guidance says, gay and transgender people can participate in such sacraments if they repent. For gay, lesbian, bisexual and queer people, that would mean ending same-sex relationships, and for trans people, it would mean living as the sexes they were assigned at birth, although the guidance says trans people who have undergone “physical changes to the body” aren’t required to reverse them.”(Bold added)(Italics added)
“And He was saying, “That which proceeds out of the man, that is what defiles the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, deeds of coveting and wickedness, as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride and foolishness.”(Mark 7:20-22)(Bold added)(Italics added)

“A total of about 80 percent of the most revered clerics in the Roman Catholic Church are homosexual despite the church’s opposition to gay rights, according to the extensively researched book by French journalist Frédéric Martel”. . . “The gay priests adhere to an unspoken code called “the closet,” where it is understood that, for instance, a cardinal or bishop who denounces homosexuality is more likely to be gay, according to the book “In the Closet of the Vatican. . . “The author said he conducted 1,500 interviews with 41 cardinals, 52 bishops and monsignors, 45 papal ambassadors or diplomatic officials, 11 Swiss guards and more than 200 priests and seminarians. . . “
The book attempts to expose a “clerical culture of secrecy” and the double lives of priests.”https://nypost.com/2019/02/14/80-percent-of-priests-in-the-vatican-are-gay-new-book/
THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS BLINDING THE UNBELIEVING . . .
“ . . .in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” (2 Co 4:4)(Bold added)(Italics added)
HIS PERNICIOUS SPIRIT MULTIPLIES . . .
“Now, whenever the unclean spirit goes out of the man, he travels through arid places seeking a cessation of his circumstances, and as a result, tranquility, and he does not find it. Then he says, Into my home I will return from where I went out. And, having come, he finds it unoccupied and swept clean and fully decorated. Then he proceeds and takes with him seven other spirits more pernicious than himself, and having entered, he makes his permanent home there. And the last circumstances of that man become worse than the first ones. Thus shall it bealso with respect to this breed of men, this pernicious breed.” (Mat 12:43-45)
THE MIND DOMINATED BY THE SINFUL NATURE IS DEATH . . .
“The Rev. Elder Jim Mitulski, known for his passionate connection of spirituality and social justice, has served LGBT congregations in New York City, Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Dallas, Texas as well as serving as a denominational executive with Metropolitan Community Churches (MCC).”(Bold added)(Italics added)

“McMullan is the founder of a group called Catholics for Marriage Equality. In August, the group held a “Pray for Equality” event outside St. Mary’s Cathedral in San Francisco, at which they were to recite the “Relational Mysteries. . . According to the California Catholic Daily, McMullan and a Rev. Jim Mitulski taught a two-part class on “Praying the Queer Rosary” at an event for the New Spirit/MCC Church of Berkeley. The announcement for the class said it is “based on stories from the bible [sic] which depict Queer Families or Relationships.”(Bold added)(Italics added) https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/17261/homosexual-activists-design-relational-mysteries-for-rosary
“For to have the mind dominated by the sinful nature is death, but to have the mind dominated by the Spirit is life and peace; because the mind dominated by the sinful nature is hostile to God, for it does not marshall itself under the command of the law of God, neither is it able to.” (Rom 8:6-7)(Bold added)(Italics added)
“But he who sins against me injures himself;
All those who hate me love death.”(Pro 8:36)
“Mitulski was diagnosed with AIDS in 1995. By speaking publically about his illness, and writing about it—particularly in religious settings—he has helped to raise awareness and compassion for those with HIV. He co-chaired San Francisco’s Ryan White Health Services Planning Council from 1998-2001.”(Bold added)(Italics added)

THE LORD SEES THEM AS WICKED . . .
“How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.
The wicked are not so,
But they are like chaff which the wind drives away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
For the LORD knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the wicked will perish.”(Psa 1:1-6)
TO THE CATHOLIC CHURCH . . .
“But if you bear the name “Jew” and rely upon the Law and boast in God, and know His will and approve the things that are essential, being instructed out of the Law, and are confident that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness, a corrector of the foolish, a teacher of the immature, having in the Law the embodiment of knowledge and of the truth, you, therefore, who teach another, do you not teach yourself? You who preach that one shall not steal, do you steal? You who say that one should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? You who boast in the Law, through your breaking the Law, do you dishonor God? For “THE NAME OF GOD IS BLASPHEMED AMONG THE GENTILES BECAUSE OF YOU,” just as it is written.” (Rom 2:17-24)(Bold added)(Italics added)
“Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming.” (Col 3:5)
“You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you think that the Scripture speaks to no purpose: “He jealously desires the Spirit which He has made to dwell in us”? But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, “GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.” Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.” (James 4:4-8)
“Finally then, brethren, we request and exhort you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us instruction as to how you ought to walk and please God (just as you actually do walk), that you excel still more. For you know what commandments we gave you by the authority of the Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God . . .”
“For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God . . .”(1 Th 4:1-5)
MURDER . . .
“It was on the 27th of March, 1992, when Sister Abhaya, (a nineteen year old studying at the St. Plus X convent in Kottayam, India) was found in the well of the convent, with multiple cuts and abrasions all over her body.”
“Credibly, Sister Abhaya discovered “Father Jose Puthurukkayil, Father Tomas Kottur and Sister in a sexually compromising position.” Consequently, Sephy fearful of the discovery, bludgeoned Sisty Abhaya with an ax. The three then disposed of her body in the well.”
“It wasn’t until the nuns at the convent pressed the Central Bureau of Investigations (CBI) that the case was re-opened 16 years after her death in 2007. The CBI, pursuant in their endeavors to get to the truth, forced the three accused to take a truth serum test, (a Narco Analysis). Consequently, the three confessed to the murder.” https://listverse.com/2016/06/10/10-murderous-priests-pastors-and-nuns/

“Initially, the murder of Sister Abhaya was investigated by the local police and state crime branch, which concluded that she had committed suicide. It was later on March 29, 1993, CBI took over the probe and filed 3 closure reports which stated that though it was a case of murder, the culprits could not be found. However, on September 4, 2008, the Kerala High Court entered the probe and came down heavily on CBI over the handling of the case, saying the agency was “still a prisoner of those who wield political and bureaucratic power”. The Kerala HC then directed that CBI’s Delhi unit hand over the probe to its Kochi counterpart.”(Bold added)(Italics added)
“Following the direction of Kerala High Court, CBI arrested Father Thomas Kottoor, Father Jose Poorthrikkayil and Sister Sephy on the charge of Sister Abhaya’s murder. According to the prosecution, Kottoor and Poorthrikkayil were having an illicit relationship with Sephy, who was also an inmate of the convent.

According to Hampden’s District Attorney, Anthony Gulluni, a warrant was issued to arrest Richard Lavigne, defrocked Roman Catholic priest for the murder of 13-year-old Danny Croteau, “but confirmed that the former priest died just a few hours later.”
“Based on the accumulation of evidence, and in particular those admissions, as a prosecutor I believe that I was fulfilling my ethical duties by moving toward the charge of murder against Richard Lavigne…and I believe we could prove it,” Gulluni said.
Consequently, the defrocked Roman Catholic priest died of “acute hypoxic respiratory failure,” with the underlying cause of “COVID-19 pneumonia,” based on the death record provided by The Boston Globe. https://www.newsweek.com/catholic-priest-richard-lavigne-murder-death-danny-croteau-1594532 (05/21/2021)

“Former Priest Convicted in Cold-Case Murder Dies in Prison” . . . “John Feit, the former Catholic priest who spent more than five decades shrouded in suspicion for his involvement in the 1960 murder of McAllen schoolteacher Irene Garza, died in prison on Tuesday. He was 87.” https://www.courthousenews.com/former-priest-convicted-of-1960-murder-dies-in-prison/ (January 12, 2022)
Feit’s health was downgraded to “poor” requiring a geriatric facility after residing in a state prison for almost two years. Feit, was transferred multiple times after serving his life sentence in the Huntsville, Texas facility since 2016. Feit was diagnosed with “stage-three kidney disease, bladder cancer, spinal stenosis and diabetes.” As a result, Feit died of cardiac arrest when he was pronounced dead at “5:38 a.m on Tuesday at the Huntsville Hospital after being unresponsive just before 5 a.m. in his cell at Estelle Unit.”
Dale Techny, Monk John Feit, Defrocked Priest
Feit disclosed confidentially in 1963 to former Monk Dale Tacheny that “he used a cellophane bag to murder a young woman in a bathtub during Easter Weekend, Tacheny testified at trial.”

“For He who said, “DO NOT COMMIT ADULTERY,” also said, “DO NOT COMMIT MURDER.” Now if you do not commit adultery, but do commit murder, you have become a transgressor of the law.” (Jam 2:11)
John Feit, Defrocked Priest, 1963 Irene Garza
Irene Garza, a former elementary school teacher and beauty queen, was last seen on April 16, 1960, (Holy Saturday) going to confession at Sacred Heart Catholic Church. It was less than a week when her body was discovered in a canal used for irrigation.
According to the trial testimony, the 27-year old Feit, “pulled Garza by the arm, attacked her inside the church’s rectory next door and gagged her with a cellophane bag in a bathtub,” instead of hearing her confession on that evening.
Just like the other abuse cases in the Priesthood of the Catholic Church unfolded by Boston Globe’s “Spotlight,” Feit also was transferred from McAllen to Servants of the Paraclete in Jemez Springs, New Mexico.
TURN FROM YOUR WICKED WAYS . . .
“Come now, and let us reason together,”

Though they are red like crimson,
They will be like wool.” (Isa 1:18)
“Let the wicked forsake his way

As you have read, death and murder are NOT the will of God!
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”(Jn 10:10)
If you have committed murder, repent! If you caused the death of another individual or individuals, repent! This charge is directed to everyone. . . Anyone! Confess your sins and ask God for forgiveness. Believe that He has died for your sins on the cross as well! Believe that he was buried and on the third day, He rose from the dead!
The verbal confession out of your mouth and the mustard seed of faith you have determined in your heart that Jesus is Lord and Savior guarantees you eternal life because you too have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior.
Once again, if you are in recovery from a mind or mood altering chemical, don’t pick up, pray, go to a Meeting, get a Sponsor, read your literature. If you want to know God, the one you’re already praying to, read his Word that you might come to know Him better!
Be eternally blessed,
