The jesuit Papal System Today:
The Jesuits Elect a New General
In January 2008, the Jesuit Order elected its new Superior General. He is a
71-year-old Spaniard, Adolfo Nicolás, and he succeeds Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, who
presented his resignation to the pope of Rome after leading the Jesuits for
almost 25 years. Nicolás speaks Spanish, Japanese, English, French and Italian.
He worked for many years in Japan, and also in the Philippines. From 2004 to
2007 he was the moderator of the Jesuit Conference of East Asia and Oceania,
covering Myanmar (Burma) to East Timor, passing through Korea and Vietnam to the
new province of China, and contributing to the growth of the Jesuit presence in
that part of the world.
According to the Jesuits’ postulator general, Nicolás was the “optimal choice” for the position. He said he “has excellent theological formation and a great missionary spirit. The Holy Spirit blew hard and the fathers let themselves be guided by the Spirit.” In truth the Holy Spirit had nothing to do with it. Jesuits are not under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and never have been; the spirit that “blew hard” was of another sort entirely.
It has always been well known to Roman Catholics that the Jesuit General is
referred to as “the Black Pope”. Jesuit priest Chris Chatteris, writing in a
South African newspaper in early 2008 after the new general’s election, did what
Jesuits do best: he put a good spin on the title. This is what he wrote:“Take
the cliché about the Jesuit General being the ‘black Pope’. This is explained in
some papers with sartorial superficiality as being because the Pope wears white
and the Jesuit General black. Deep analysis. The tag’s origins actually refer to
the fact that both men are elected for life. And the point of the ‘black Pope’s’
lifelong term is not to imitate the ‘white Pope’. It is about the need that the
Jesuit founder, St Ignatius of Loyola, felt for continuity of government and the
avoidance of frequent meetings to elect new superiors.” Nice try, Sir. That’s a
whitewash. Here’s the real reason: “In Roman Catholic circles it is well known
that the Black Pope is the term used for the General of the Jesuits. As the Pope
is always robed in white, and the General in black, the contrast is obvious. But
those Romanists who do not greatly love the Jesuits, and their number is not
limited, use the term as indicating that the Black Pope rules the White Pope.”
He is called this because he is known to be the real power behind the Vatican
throne, rather than the pope!
Over the centuries, Jesuits have even assassinated popes who stood in the way of
their ambitions. And the popes have always feared their power, for as the Jesuit
founder originally designed it, the Order was responsible to the Society’s
General alone – not even to the pope of Rome! The Jesuit General alone was
recognised as God’s true representative on earth. It is no different today, and
this can be seen by what occurred when the new general was chosen:
Traditionally, newly elected superiors-general renew their obedience to the pope
of Rome in writing; and Benedict XVI, upon receiving an envelope from the new
general in which this was done, said he thought this was a “good custom”. In
addition, obedience to the pope in missionary matters is the fourth vow that all
Jesuits make, alongside the usual three vows of poverty, chastity and obedience.
The Jesuits reported, “The pope opened the envelope right away and read the
vows. Then he said, ‘This is a very good custom.’”
Well, Benedict would certainly think so! In fact, he probably breathed a sigh of
relief upon receiving the envelope. For knowing the history of this sinister
Order as he undoubtedly does, which has seen to the “accelerated demise” of a
number of popes through the centuries – he would naturally welcome any promise
of obedience to himself that the Jesuits are prepared to make – even if what
they write is not worth the paper it is written on. One of Benedict’s papal
predecessors, Clement XIV, said this about the Jesuits in his Papal Bull, dated
21 July 1773: “...the Kings of France, Portugal, and Sicily, found themselves
reduced to the necessity of expelling and driving from their states, kingdoms
and provinces these very companions of Jesus [as they called themselves! –
S.W.], persuaded that there remained no other remedy to so great evils and that
this step was necessary in order to prevent the Christians [by which he meant
Roman Catholics] from rising one against another, and from massacring each other
in the very bosom of our common mother, the Holy Church.” He also stated that
the Jesuits had produced “dangerous seditions, tumults, discords, dissentions
There was an indication of the great power and influence of the Jesuits, and of
their habit of going their own way and ignoring even the orders of the pope when
these did not suit them, in a letter Benedict XVI sent on January 10 to the
previous Jesuit General, Kolvenbach, on the occasion of the order’s 35th General
Congregation. He wrote:“It could prove extremely useful that the General
Congregation reaffirm, in the spirit of St. Ignatius, its own total adhesion to
Catholic doctrine, in particular on those neuralgic points which today are
strongly attacked by secular culture, as for example, the relationship between
Christ and religions; some aspects of the theology of liberation; and various
points of sexual morality, especially as regards the indissolubility of marriage
and the pastoral care of homosexual persons.” Why would the pope say it could
“prove extremely useful” for the Jesuits to reaffirm their adhesion to Roman
Catholic doctrine? There can be only one reason: he knows that the Jesuits are
quite prepared to “bend the rules” to suit themselves whenever they feel like it
– and furthermore, he knows that many other Papists know it as well! The
Jesuits, more than any other order, promoted the diabolical doctrine of
“liberation theology”, of which the pope spoke; they are also deeply involved in
pushing the interfaith movement; and they have always been very lax when it
comes to sexual morality.
The Jesuits, for their part, reported that a committee had been formed to study
the pope’s letter. Now if an entire committee had to be formed to study it, this
just shows that the Jesuits are in the habit of doing things their own way, even
if this conflicts with more orthodox Roman Catholic practice. They operate
according to the rule that “the end justifies the means”.
Further evidence of the fact of the power and influence of the Jesuits, and
their habit of going their own way and ignoring even the orders of the pope when
these do not suit them, is seen in the words of the new general. He held a press
conference in Rome in which he said: “The Society of Jesus has always been, from
the beginning, in communion with the Holy Father, and always will be. The
Society wants to collaborate with the Holy See, to obey the Holy Father. This
has not changed, and never will.”
Now why would the Jesuit General find it necessary to even make a statement like
that? Unless... unless there are very real tensions between the Jesuits and the
pope of Rome! There so often have been. The very fact that a statement like this
was made, shows that the Jesuits and the pope of Rome do not always see eye to
eye, and that the Jesuits are pretty much a law unto themselves within the Roman
Catholic institution. This statement by the general is a lie, and he knows it.
The Society has not always been in communion with the pope, and in fact has
often gone counter to the pope’s own wishes and commands. And even from its very
formation, it was always committed to the general first, and only secondarily to
the pope. And note his wording: “The Society wants to collaborate with the Holy
See, to obey the Holy Father.” One can easily discern the scarcely-veiled
arrogance behind the words. It wants to “collaborate” with the pope? But the
pope is the head of the Roman Catholic “Church”, the supposed “Vicar of Christ”!
A Papist doesn’t “collaborate” with the pope! Plus, his words imply that
although the Jesuits want to “collaborate” with the pope and “obey” him, they
will only do so if and when it suits them!
Over and over, we see the Jesuit General making statements expressing the
Jesuits’ commitment to the pope, and refuting the idea that they act
independently. Way back in January 1995, when the pope at the time, John Paul
II, met with the Jesuits, the Jesuit General at the time, Kolvenbach, said that
the meeting with the pope was a clear sign that the Jesuit delegation “has no
desire to act as an autonomous or isolated body”. Methinks they protest too
much! They constantly have to issue such statements and assurances, for the
simple reason that no one really trusts them – not even the pope himself! And
with very good reason, as history has shown.
The Secret Army of the Papacy
Jesuit: Member of Society of Jesus, R.C. Order founded by Ignatius Loyola and
others (1534); dissembling person, equivocator. – Concise Oxford Dictionary
When two Jesuits meet, the devil is always there to make a threesome. – old
The Roman Catholic Jesuit Order, which also arrogantly calls itself the “Society
of Jesus”, is little known, much less understood, today. And yet, not very long
ago, this organisation was so well known, that “Jesuitical” was a most
derogatory term; the Order was outlawed from almost every Roman Catholic nation;
and it was feared and loathed by the inhabitants of all enlightened nations.
Why was this the case? What vile doctrines did the members of this Order hold,
and what evil deeds had they committed, to cause such universal reactions
against them? And furthermore: the Jesuits are still here; they are still going
strong; they have not altered their doctrines, nor repented of their wicked
deeds – in fact, they continue to perpetrate them; they remain what they have
ever been – the “secret army of the Papacy”, ruthlessly dedicated to the
advancement of the Roman Catholic religion, the domination of the world, and the
total destruction of Protestantism! They are the most dangerous Order of priests
within the Roman Catholic religion, and indeed, the most dangerous organization
of men the world has ever known.
Every Christian, as well as every Roman Catholic, needs to be well-informed
about the Jesuits and their doings: the Christian, because the Jesuits are the
sworn enemies of the Gospel of Christ, and of the Church of the living God (and
thus of Christ himself, for to persecute his Church is to persecute the Lord –
Acts 9:5); and the Roman Catholic, because it is his “Church” (so-called), the
Roman Catholic “Church”, that harbours this diabolical Order, and that blesses
its efforts as it goes about its abominable work; and this being so, Roman
Catholicism cannot be the Church of Jesus Christ; for, as shall be seen, the
doctrines and deeds of the Jesuit Order are absolutely opposed to the Gospel of
Christ, and any “Church” that sanctions them cannot be the Church of Christ.
Secular historian Edmond Paris, writing in The Secret History of the Jesuits,
made the following pertinent remarks: “There is another reason [for writing
against the Jesuits].... At the same time as new generations of readers come,
new generations of Jesuits come to light. And these work today with the same
tortuous and tenacious methods, which so often in the past set to work the
defensive reflexes of nations and governments. The sons of Loyola are today –
and may we say more than ever – the leading wing of the Roman Church. As well if
not better disguised than of old, they remain the most eminent “ultramontanes”,
the discreet but efficacious agents of the Holy See throughout the world, the
camouflaged champions of its politics, the ‘secret army of the Papacy’.
For this reason, the subject of the Jesuits will never be exhausted and, even
though the literature concerning them is so plentiful [although, as Paris
declares on the same page, “most early books retracing the history of the
Jesuits cannot be found any more”], every epoch will have the duty to add a few
pages to it, to mark the continuity of this occult system started four centuries
ago ‘for the greater glory of God’, but in fact for the glory of the pope.”
This short article is designed to “add a few pages” to the literature concerning
the Jesuits, at a time when so little is known of them, and yet so much needs to
be known. It is designed for widespread dissemination, and it is the prayer of
the author that, if the Lord wills, it will have a wide circulation in these
dreadful days of ecumenism and apostasy.
The Origin of the Jesuits
The Jesuit Order, which has brought so much bloodshed and suffering upon the
world, originated with a man named Ignatius de Loyola, born in 1491. Loyola was
a Spanish basque who became a fanatical Romanist after living a debauched life
as a soldier. Amidst much fasting and self-flagellation he claimed to have many
visions of God and of Mary, the Roman Catholic goddess. In Spain he studied
Romanist theology, and wrote a book entitled The Spiritual Exercises. This was
to become the textbook of the Jesuit Order.
Loyola founded the so-called “Society of Jesus” in 1534, with a small band of
friends; and in 1540, the Jesuit “Constitution” was drafted. Pope Paul III
issued a bull approving (and thus officially “founding”) the Jesuits as a
religious order of the Roman Catholic “Church”. But here a most important fact
must be carefully noted, for it throws such light on the real nature of the
Society: Loyola established the Society before it received papal approval! The
little band of men who made up the Society at its inception in 1534 vowed to
obey Loyola, as the General of the organisation, before they ever went to the
pope! It was not Loyola’s original intention to submit his Society to the pope,
but only to himself as its General. He had ambitions of his own. Only if he
found it absolutely necessary, did Loyola intend to seek papal approval for his
And this fact is borne out by a Roman Catholic author, Alban Butler, who wrote,
“In 1534... St. Ignatius and his six companions... made a vow at Montmartre to
visit the Holy Land, and unite their labours for the conversion of the infidels;
or, if this should be found not practicable, to cast themselves at the feet of
the pope, and offer their services wherever he thought fit to employ them.” This
fact, so often overlooked, is tremendously significant. The truth is that it was
only when Loyola and his small group failed to begin work in Palestine, and cast
their eyes towards Europe as a field of operation, that Loyola approached the
pope for papal approval – knowing as he did that, there being so many religious
orders already in Europe, he could not work in Europe without such approval.
This means that, ever since its founding, the Society has been totally
dedicated, first and foremost, not to the pope, but to the Jesuit General. The
Jesuits are a law unto themselves. While outwardly acknowledging the authority
of the pope of Rome, their real allegiance is to the Jesuit General. All orders
come from the General; even the pope’s instructions are only passed on if the
General sees fit. It is not surprising that the Jesuit General came to be known
as the “black pope”. Naturally enough, when Loyola approached Paul III,
the latter had strong reservations. It was not difficult to discern that men
swearing absolute obedience to their General would be independent of the Papacy
and thus dangerous to it, even though they professed to be submissive to it.
Loyola cunningly suggested that the Jesuits also take a vow of obedience to the
pope, to go wherever he should send them; and Paul III agreed to this, and
sanctioned the Society. Yet, in practice, the Jesuits have never taken any
notice of this vow. The pope is only obeyed when it suits them.
What is the purpose of the Jesuit Order? Why does it exist? It is quite simple:
the Jesuits seek to convert the world to Roman Catholicism. And in order to
achieve this goal, they have not hesitated to use every means, both fair and
foul – especially foul. They have not hesitated to lie, cheat, commit murder, or
use revolution, if need be, to further their aims. At the very top of their
priorities has always been the destruction of Protestantism, as shall be seen.
For the spiritual conflict must be discerned in all this: Satan’s ages-long war
on the Church of the living God (Rev.12). For centuries, Rome has been the
centre of Satan’s assault on the saints of God (Rev. 13:7; 17:1-6; 18:24; Dan.
7:25). Through the Inquisition and other means, the devil sought to wipe out the
Church of Christ. Then, with the formation of the Jesuit Order in the sixteenth
century, a new and deadly weapon was created to be used against biblical
Mention was made earlier of a book penned by Loyola, entitled “The Spiritual
Exercises”. This, and the “Constitutions”, are used in the preparation of Jesuit
recruits for their task.
The “Spiritual Exercises” work on the imagination of the candidate, helped by a
“director”. Various biblical scenes are “relived” in front of him, beautiful
ones alternating with frightening ones. His sighs, inhalings, breathing, and
periods of silence are all noted down. After a number of weeks of this, he is
ready for indoctrination. Obedience is absolutely vital to the Jesuit Order.
Every Jesuit must be in total obedience to his superior, obeying him without
question. In the Constitutions of the Order, it is repeated some 500 times that
the Jesuit must see in the General, not a fallible man, but Christ himself! This
was said by a professor of Roman Catholic theology. In the words of Ignatius:
“We must see black as white, if the Church says so.”
The Jesuit probationer is required by the Constitution to be as a corpse, able
to be moved in any direction (Part IV, Chapter 1); striving to acquire perfect
resignation and denial of his own will and judgment (Part III, Chapter 1).
According to the Constitution (Part IV, Chapter 5), the Jesuit may even sin, if
the superior commands it – for sin will not be sin in such a case! In the
“Society of Jesus”, there is a greater authority than the pope, and a greater
authority (as far as the Jesuits are concerned) than God himself – and that is
the General. For what God has declared to be sin, the General can declare to be
no sin. The Jesuits readily dispense with the laws of God, if it suits them.
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light,
and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isa.
5:20). It is precisely this type of abominable doctrine that has enabled the
Jesuits to commit murders, depose kings, destroy governments, without any fear
of divine punishment. “The end justifies the means”, is a fundamental, albeit
unwritten, rule of the Jesuit Order.
Never has a more fanatical and powerful Society existed upon the earth.
While, in general, the Roman Catholic institution has never had any qualms about
“re-interpreting”, or even dispensing entirely with, the commandments of God –
of the Papacy it was prophesied that it shall “think to change times and laws”
(Dan. 7:25) – the Jesuits, in particular, are masters at this. In this way they
have often endeared themselves to the people, and in particular to the upper
classes, whom they have always sought to control. By being lenient in the
confessional, imposing slight penances for sins or even justifying sin whenever
it suited them, they became the most popular confessors of the rich and powerful
in many lands – and still are. And naturally, as their popularity as confessors
grew, so their influence over the upper classes grew, and consequently their
control over governments. For it must be understood that confession of sins to a
priest is absolutely essential for salvation, according to Roman Catholic
theology: the Romanist must confess to a priest, and that priest must absolve
the penitent of sin. This is not the teaching of God’s Word, which declares that
sins must be confessed to God, who alone has the power to forgive them (Psa.
32:5; Lk. 11:4).
Here are some examples of their subtlety and wickedness: Regarding the commandment, “Thou shalt not bear false witness” (Exod. 20:16), the Jesuits (if it was to their advantage) would teach adulterous women that if their husbands asked them if they had broken the conjugal contract, they could reply in the negative, because the contract still existed. One can imagine how such a teaching would appeal to an adulterous woman who came to confession – and how the Jesuit influence over her would be strengthened. They have taught that a servant who helps his master seduce a girl is not committing a mortal sin if, by refusing to help, he will be ill-treated by his master; that, if a young girl is pregnant, a miscarriage can be induced if her pregnancy will bring dishonour to herself or a priest. They have readily dispensed with the laws of God in order to protect themselves.
A Jesuit named L’Amy taught that “A monk or priest is allowed to kill those who are ready to slander him or his community”; and, “If a Father [priest], yielding to temptation, abuses a woman and she publicises what has happened, and, because of it, dishonours him, this same Father can kill her to avoid disgrace!” Is it any wonder that the Jesuits have often resorted to murder? Jesuit theologians have repeatedly, in their writings, justified the telling of lies if to do so is advantageous to the Society. Scripture declares that “all liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone” (Rev. 21:8); but by advocating “equivocation” and “mental reservation”, the disciples of Loyola have convinced themselves that certain lies are not lies, when the end justifies the means.
As for the murder of kings and rulers, this has often been justified in Jesuit
writings. For example, a Jesuit named Juan Mariana taught, in great detail, the
lawfulness of the murder of rulers, as far back as 1599; and his book bore the
imprimatur of the Jesuit Order – the Order gave permission for it to be
published, its doctrines having been previously sanctioned by “learned and
distinguished” Jesuits. As for any prince or king whom the pope has
excommunicated, it is actually meritorious to kill him, according to Jesuit
The history of the past four centuries is filled with documented examples of the
murder of rulers by this diabolical Order. But it is particularly against
Protestantism that the Jesuits have directed all their venom. For over four
centuries they have worked tirelessly for its destruction. And they have sought
to use every method at their disposal to accomplish this, including seeking to
murder the “Doctors [teachers] of the Reformed Churches”.
John Hagee Bows to the Antichrist
Hagee who is the Pastor of the Cornerstone Assembly (Church) with a ministry that is broadcasted on 150 TV Stations and 50 radio stations, wrote a letter saying he was sorry for offending Catholics for the sake of "unity" with his previous remarks about Catholicism. Hagee who is a traditional Pentecostal by doctrine, believes the Jews are not required Holy Scriptures to believe in Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord even though Christ brought the Gospel to the Jews first, then the Greeks (read the True Israel of God).
Controversy peaked over Obama's pastor making outrageous statements about America, and dividing the races, had provoked among liberals to focus more attention with the endorsement of Hagee towards McCain. While discussing the defense of Israel and future as a nation in one of his books called; "Jerusalem Countdown" Hagee says that Adolf Hitler's antisemitism came from his Catholic background, and under Pope Pius XII. He also said that Catholics encouraged Nazism instead of denouncing it. He concluded in no uncertain terms that Catholicism is a cult, and the "Great Whore." Now Hagee wasn't referring to Revelation 17, rather he was just defending the nation of Israel in what he viewed as a commandment to do so. His stance on the second coming of Christ would conflict with Rome being the "Great Whore" of Revelation 17. It's possible that he wrote the apology to Catholics in order to make McCain look better whom in his eyes would defend Israel more than the Democratic party would. Hagee appears to be openly hostile to admitting this fact as the main reason for supporting McCain, as seen with the interview below. Even Glenn Beck who is not known for his religious views, but is more known for his political views, was able to detect the primary reason for Hagee's motive for supporting McCain, and it wasn't abortion...Take a look...
Interesting enough, Hagee also mentions in the apology letter that his goal is to seek a, "greater unity among Catholics and evangelicals." In response to all this, the Catholic league has accepted his apology and are excited by his new direction which is nothing more than bowing to the Pope of Rome with it's errors as claiming to be the leader of Christ's church. Ironically, the Pope recently declared "Protestant Institutions are Not Churches". So don't expect the Pope to recant such a statement like Hagee did nor the Hagee team to demand an apology from the Pope...
For a man (Hagee) who claims "absolute authority of the scripture" he shows no such evidence. The Bible make is clear to be separate; Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers; for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?" (2 Cor. 6:14-18). If Hagee was seeking real unity for past faults he wouldn't be combining the light with darkness. Even though the darkness might appear more friendly to the Jews, it doesn't mean you unite with them. Hagee also has numerous doctrinal errors, for example, he believes in "baptism of the Spirit". In other words, one can be saved and not have the Holy Spirit. Scriptures make it very clear...
But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
