Woman ordained as Catholic priest

How bad is rebellion? Are there degrees of falsity? Is it like Animal Farm, all animals are equal but some are more equal than others? All rebellion is bad but some rebels are worse than others?

Catholicism is a false religion. Catholics who hold to Catholic dogma are not saved. Yet it gets worse, with the move from the top down, from Pope Francis down to rogue women, to ordain women as priests and/or place them in higher positions. It's rebellion wrapped up in more rebellion, hypocrites behaving falsely. They wax worse deceiving and  being deceived. Rebels rebelling in yet more rebellion.
Kentucky woman ordained as priest in defiance of Roman Catholic Church
In an emotional ceremony filled with tears and applause, a 70-year-old Kentucky woman was ordained a priest on Saturday as part of a dissident group operating outside of official Roman Catholic Church authority. Rosemarie Smead is one of about 150 women around the world who have decided not to wait for the Roman Catholic Church to lift its ban on women priests, but to be ordained and start their own congregations. In an interview before the ceremony, Smead said she is not worried about being excommunicated from the Church - the fate of other women ordained outside of Vatican law.

"It has no sting for me," said Smead, a petite, gray-haired former Carmelite nun with a ready hug for strangers. "It is a Medieval bullying stick the bishops used to keep control over people and to keep the voices of women silent. I am way beyond letting octogenarian men tell us how to live our lives."
And that last statement sums it up. They say "I'm not letting a man tell me what to do." Their same attitude is held toward God. They are not letting God tell them what to do. Disobedience from His ways and His word always results in catastrophe for the rebel, and I am so sad that this woman is leading other women down a very perilous path.

Do you see the hypocrisy below? The woman priest seems to submit to God but she is only making a show, for she already declared she does not submit to men who hold a doctrinal opinion alternate from hers. She is ultimately rebelling though seeming to submit. And yet the whole thing is a hypocritical endeavor because the entire Catholic Church is false. She is already not submitting. It is what Jesus said,

"Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven." (Matthew 6:1)

"And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others." (Matthew 6:5)

The problem is, her attitude of dismissing men who are in authority (though Catholic priests and Pope have no authority) infects Christian denominations in a flood. Christian Caine, Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer, and many others not as well-known are ordained and/or function as pastors despite the fact that the bible prohibits women from that office.

Women pastors / preachers? What does the Bible say about women in ministry?"

So with women Catholic priests you have an unbibical position falsely created by the false Catholic Church, absolving sins as an "alter Christus". The Catholic doctrine of 'alter Christus' means another Christ, and that is who they believe priests are. It is why they say they have the power to absolve sin. Yet 2 Corinthians 11:4 says that if anyone comes and preaches another Christ, let him be accursed.

And it only makes matters worse to say that a woman is 'another Christ'. God revealed himself as a man. Much like William P. Young in the blasphemous book, The Shack, who presented God as a woman, and the Holy Spirit as a woman, it is equally wrong to say a woman can be another Christ.

The false ones change what Jesus said, but no longer content with that, they now change who He is.

The only way to combat that in your own life is to know who He is. Read the word, that is where God revealed His Son to us, and it is the only place where we can be sure of the truth. The truth of who Jesus is is not contained in visions, nor dreams, nor other religions, but only in holy scripture.

And once you know who Jesus is, you can know who you are, and you won't be deceived by people coming along whispering ... 'I'm another Christ, let the men be damned'.

    1. I saw that when it was making the rounds a short while ago. It's ridiculous, isn't it? But it shows how satan will use anyone, at any time, anywhere to further his purposes, which is to lie every moment of his unholy and horrific fallen life, and to steal, kill, and destroy.

  3. I am 65 and been catholic all my life. Many people don't understand confession. The priest can forgive you of all the confessed sins and give you penance such as the Lords Prayer. Our Lord hears repentence so when you stand before God to be judged you will be forgiven and you will also have to be cleansed in purgatory before entering heaven. Nothing unclean can enter heaven. No woman can become a priest because Jesus is a man and a priest follows in Jesus footsteps.

    1. Where is purgatory explained in the bible? Because if Jesus didn't finish the job of taking care of sin on the cross, the cross is of no worth and I might as well worship Buddha. or a grasshopper. So please, share from the bible where the verses say that we "have to be cleansed in purgatory before entering heaven."

  4. These women cannot be called "Catholic", though they may claim to be. If someone believed in the infallibility of the pope, I would not call them Baptist, because that is against the Baptist's beliefs. So please do not call these women who are acting against the Catholic Church's beliefs "Catholic." The Church will never allow the ordination of women.
    I am saying this because of the part above in which you said, "So with women Catholic priests you have an unbiblical position falsely created by the false Catholic Church..."
    I hope I did not misunderstand the sentence, and I apologize if I did.

    1. These women call themselves Catholic. For the world at large unfamiliar with Catholic doctrine, it is the same as *being* Catholic, to them. I think the Church will ordain women soon. It already is a false church, so anything is open. This article indicates a new openness.

      Pope Francis says women play a 'fundamental' role within the church

      Pope Francis on Wednesday said women play a "fundamental role" in the Catholic Church as those who are mostly responsible for passing on the faith from one generation to the next. While the new pope stopped far short of calling for women's ordination or giving women more decision-making power in the church, his remarks nonetheless signaled an openness to women that's not often seen in the church hierarchy.

      However I understand exactly where you are coming from, and thanks for taking the time to comment :)

  5. So she is saying the scriptural commands and instruction are a bullying stick? 1 Timothy 2:11-15 / 1 Corinthians 4:17.
