Six Types of Tongues Part 4

A Naughty Tongue

Proverbs 17.4: "A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue."

While the word naughty often brings to mind the image of a wayward child who regularly receives reproof for his foolishness or disobedience, the word naughty in today's text denotes something much more serious in the eyes of God. A naughty tongue, much like both the backbiting and the deceitful, lying tongues, says things with intention of promoting wickedness. A heart that is determined to harm another person, either verbally, emotionally or physically, fuels this cruel speech. A naughty tongue is a wicked, evil tongue that, as James 3.6 describes, "is set on fire of hell." Our text tells us that those who listen to the words uttered by a naughty tongue are liars, just as ones who heed "false lips" are evil doers.

Notice that a naughty tongue does not secretly utter slanderous words to another person, as does a backbiting tongue; but rather, its speech is uninhibited, spiteful and confrontational. When one verbally attacks someone in order to "set him straight" on a particular issue, then gentleness, meekness and humility are certainly not evident in his life, even though the Lord requires these fruits of the Spirit to grace one's speech. God's Word tells us that even though we might harbour anger in our hearts, we must not allow that anger to manifest itself in a sinful manner, and certainly lashing out with a naughty tongue at someone is sinful indeed (Eph. 4.25-27). To succumb to our flesh is to "give place to the devil," and no believer should ever yield his actions to the enemy of his soul. Believer, guard your tongue against speaking that which is hurtful or spiteful. God hates such language, and so should we.

Six Types of Tongues Part 3

A Froward Tongue

Proverbs 10.31-32: "The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom: but the froward tongue shall be cut out. The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness."

Seldom do we hear the word froward used in modern-day speech, but in today's text that term describes an attitude of foolishness or perverseness that affects what a person says. In other words, the "froward tongue" does not concern itself with speaking that which is righteous and just. Instead, a froward person speaks foolish and perverse things that clearly reveal he is not walking in a right relationship with the Lord. Once again, it is necessary to recognize that such an attitude begins in the heart. Verse 32 of today's text says, "the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness." Wickedness, or unrighteousness, resides in the heart and life of the one who speaks with a froward tongue before he even utters a single word. What is our Lord's estimation of this sinful attitude and speech? Notice Proverbs 11.20 which says, "They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the LORD: but such as are upright in their way are His delight." Furthermore, Proverbs 8.12 tells us that God hates "pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth."

A froward individual walks in darkness (Proverbs 2.12, 13). He is divisive and mischievous (Prov. 6.12-14) and sows strife through his words and actions (Prov. 16-28). As believers, we are to guard our tongues and always act and speak in a way that reveals our love for God, our regard for truth and righteousness and our concern for our fellow believers in Christ. To speak that which the Lord deems "foolishness" or "perverseness" not only causes us to lose our testimony before others but also reveals that our hearts have wandered from a right relationship with our Lord.

Six Types of Tongues - Part 2

Deceitful, Lying Tongue

Psalms 120.1-7:
"In my distress I cried unto the LORD,
and he heard me. Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, and from a deceitful
tongue. What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou
false tongue?
Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper. Woe is me, that I sojourn in
Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar! My soul hath long dwelt with him
that hateth peace. I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war."

Deceit is always characterized by a heart that is hardened to the will of God. Such were the hearts of those who persecuted the psalmist in today's text. He cried out to God, "Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue" (v. 2).

We find from the context that these evil men hated peace (v.6) and despised the words of the psalmist (v.7). Instead, they loved "devouring words" because their tongue "[devised] mischiefs; like a sharp rasor, working deceitfully" (Psa. 52.1-4). They were so opposed to the word and will of God that they persecuted the psalmist by disseminating untrue, deceitful information about him to others.

Such lies and deception caused the author of this psalm to live in misery and even to cry out, "Woe is me" (v.5). King David also experienced the harm resulting from a lying tongue (Psa. 109.1-4) and cried out to God for deliverance. Wicked men inflicted much pain upon this Godly man by the untrue words they spoke against him.

It is possible for us, like the evil men in our text who had no fear of God, to use our tongues to make the life of another person miserable by being deceitful and speaking lies about him. However, such speech should never come from the lips of one who desires to glorify God and accomplish His will. As believers, we are to "consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works" (Heb. 10.24).

The Word of God tells us: "Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour" (Eph. 4.25). The judgment of God (v.4) rests upon a deceitful, lying tongue, for Proverbs 6.16-17 declares that such is an abomination to Him.

Six Types of Tongues - Part 1

A Backbiting Tongue

Proverbs 25.23: "The north wind driveth away rain: so doth
an angry countenance a backbiting tongue."

Today's Bible text, although once again brief, contains invaluable counsel to the child of God who desires to guard himself from the contamination of hurtful speech. But before we can better discern the dangers of a backbiting tongue, we must first understand what it is.

The Hebrew word from which backbiting is translated denotes speech that is slanderously uttered in secret between two or more people.

Psalm 101.5 contains the same Hebrew word for backbiting used in today's text, but it reads, "Whoso privily (privately) slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off." The psalmist David is vowing here that he will not allow anyone to come to him and whisper in his ear false words about someone else. Thus, a "backbiting tongue" refers to the speech of one who quietly, secretly utters to a confidant untrue statements that are solely intended to slander another person.

As with yesterday's text, Proverbs 25.23 contains a correlation between the attitudes of our hearts and the words that flow forth from our mouths. Just as the wind controls the direction and destination of the rain clouds, so the anger in our hearts can control the direction and content of our speech and even our very countenance.

What should our response be to those who come to us with a backbiting tongue, eager to share with us "confidential" information about someone else? Like David, we should not allow them to utter even the first words of their slanderous speech (read again Psalm 101.5); but rather, we must let them know in no uncertain terms that we ourselves do not speak in such a way nor desire to be spoken to in like manner.

Keep thinking!!

Six Types of Tongues - Introduction

I thought that it would be interesting to discuss this subject. We as women know that our mouths (tongues) can get us into serious trouble. I would like for us to look at the Scriptures and see what God's Word has to say about it these next few days. Maybe it will be a help and blessing to someone. I know as I looked into it myself it helped me.

Proverbs 21:23:"Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his
soul from troubles."

In this short text, while apparently simple and self-explanatory, is full of rich truths that can change our lives and our relationships with others if we will only heed and obey it. How often do we get ourselves into trouble because we fail to guard our speech? Or how many times have we felt anguish and despair over words we have uttered that we could not take back?

While we are not able to erase the things that we said in the past, we certainly can purpose to guard our tongues so that anything we utter from this day forward will not inflict any unnecessary pain on another or bring additional trouble upon our own souls.

To "keep" our tongue means to guard our speech and, in effect, to guard our hearts as well, for Jesus said, "those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; adn they defile the man" (Matt. 15:18).

James wrote that although the tongue is a "little member" within our bodies, it is capable of inflicting much pain (James 3:3-10). God's Word describes six types of tongues that can reside within the mouth of the believer: a backbiting tongue (Prov. 25:23), a deceitful or lying tongue (Psa. 109:2, 120:2), a froward tongue (Prov. 10:31), a naughty tongue (Prov. 17:4), a perverse tongue (Prov. 17:20), and a wholesome tongue (Prov. 15:4).

Our goal as believers in Christ is to refrain from allowing any tongue other than a wholesome tongue to reign in our bodies. If we desire to honour God in our lives and if we hope to flee unnecessary troubles and maintain a proper testimony before others, then we will guard our tongues and be sure that our speech is in accordance with His will.

Just a little food to get you thinking.

You're too harsh! You have no love!

Edited by Geek Wife
I am so terribly tired of hearing from effeminate Christians who say I have no love and that I am too harsh in sharing the word. They say I am not loving and have no charity. According to who? Not the word of God.


God does not accept worship based on a lie. He rejects it. He will only accept worship based on the truth.

John 4:23, ...the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

...thy word is truth. John 17:17

Not according to the scriptures. The Holy Ghost Himself teaches.
...the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 1 Corinthians 2:13

...the anointing which ye have received of him [God] abideth in you... the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. 1 John 2:27
We are not taught of man.

...ye need not that any man teach you 1 John
Which things also we speak, NOT in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, 1 Corinthians 2:13 2:27

Men lie. We must rely on the Bible.

God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar Romans 3:4
God is not a man, that he should lie...Numbers 23:19


Jesus said that they that worship the Father must worship Him in spirit and in TRUTH. The Catholic religion is full of blasphemy and murder. The Catholic religion tortured and killed millions and millions of Christians who refused to bow the knee to the papacy. So, how are we to respond to this false religion?

...have NO fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. Ephesians 5:11

The Catholic religion is proven darkness. Paul tells us here to HAVE NO FELLOWSHIP WITH THEM but rather REPROVE them. Who are you reproving? Unfortunately, you are having fellowship with them.


Paul says let him/it be ACCURSED! He doesn't say, "Forget the non-essentials".

But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. ...if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. Galatians 1:8-9

The Catholic religion brings another gospel--a sacramental gospel. What doth the scripture say? Let it be ACCURSED. What are you doing? Blessing them. What does the scripture say about blessing the heretic?
For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. 2 John 1:11
Everytime you bless these people, YOU are a partaker of their evil! Professing Christians have been duped by Satan into desiring the things of men instead of the things of God.
They worry about "hurting people's feelings".

...Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men. Matthew 16:23

According to the Bible, it's okay for people to be sad if it will work repentance in their heart.
...godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. 2 Corinthians 7:10


A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject. Titus 3:10

If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha. 1 Corinthians 16:22

To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. 1 Corinthians 5:5

God is angry with the wicked every day. Psalms 7:11


Real love is not a touchy-feely-make-everybody-feel-good proposition. It is doing what the Lord Jesus tells us to do.
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me...He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings... John 14:21, 24

A lot of people are giving God lip service about loving Jesus and accepting Him as Lord and Saviour, but God does not accept us based on lip service.

And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. 1 Samuel 15:22
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. Psalms 51:17


The people who say, "Forget the non-essentials we all just love Jesus" are dead wrong. Know ye not that there is more than one Jesus and that we're not all talking about the same one?
For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, 2 Corinthians 11:4

The Catholic religion preaches another Jesus who Paul did not preach. Their Jesus lives inside a piece of bread. The JWs preach another Jesus. So do the Mormons, Christadelphians, Garbage Eaters, Muslims, Atheists, Satanists and every other weirdo cult. The NIV, Phillips, and other modern Bibles says things that God did not say and remove things that God did say. Falsehood everywhere.

Most people who write saying that I lack charity are NIV-reading ecumenical types who are shocked when confronted with the truth in a direct manner. They are so used to waffling that they don't want to handle forthtelling the Bible way.

I don't expect anyone to come to this site and just take my word for the information I'm sharing. You can look it up for yourself. It's verifiable. Go to some Catholic sites and check out the various tenets, compare the scriptures between the NIV/NKJV, etc. with the King James. The data is there in front of your eyes!
It's verifiable so what's your problem?

For some people who have come to this site, it is the first time they've heard the truth about their false religion or belief. Some people get saved as a result. Will I shut up because some ecumenists say, "You're not loving"? Nay, I will rather obey God. Do you despise me for sharing the word of life in boldness? Telling the truth is love.
Letting someone go to the lake of fire because you're too scared to tell them the truth is HATE.

Chastworth House - Travel Review

Written by Geek Wife

I had recently visited Peak District, and had a chance to have a peek where Duke of Devonshire (I had no clue why he lives there since the area is supposedly Derbyshire) .
A bit about it...
Chatsworth House is a large country house 3½ miles north east of Bakewell in Derbyshire, England, originally built by Bess of Hardwick. It is the seat of the Dukes of Devonshire, whose family name is Cavendish. Chatsworth stands on the left bank of the River Derwent and looks across the river to the low hills that divide the valleys of the Derwent and the Wye. The Park is expansive, and the house is backed by rocky hills covered with bracken and heather. The house contains a unique collection of priceless paintings, furniture, Old Master drawings, neoclassical sculpture and other artefacts. Chatsworth's garden is one of the most famous in England. Chatsworth has been selected as the United Kingdom's favourite country house several times.

And here is some picture.

The main hall....

The library....

(is those books only accessories or someone acutally read it?)

The True Saint Is Different

Edited by Country Mama
The Church's mightiest influence is felt when she is different from the world in which she lives. Her power lies in her being different, rises with the degree in which she differs and sinks as the difference diminishes.

This is so fully and clearly taught in the Scriptures and so well illustrated in Church history that it is hard to see how we can miss it. But miss it we do, for we hear constantly that the Church must try to be as much like the world as possible, excepting, of course, where the world is too, too sinful; and we are told to get adjusted to the world and "be all things to all men." (This use of the passage, incidentally, points up Peter's saying that "Our beloved brother brother Paul" wrote some things which the unlearned and the unstable wrest to their own destruction.)

One sure mark of the Church's heavenly character is that she is different from the rest of mankind; similarity is a mark of her fall. The sons of God and the sons of men are morally and spiritually separated, and between them there is a great gulf fixed. When religious persons try to bridge that gulf by compromise they violate the very principles of the kingdom of God.

Men are impressed with the message of the Church just as far and as long as she is different from themselves. When she seeks to be like them they no longer respect her. They believe (and rightly) that she is playing false to herself and to them. The moral jar that results when an indoctrinated son of Adam meets a son of heaven is one of the most wholesome things that can happen to both of them.
And contrary to common opinion, men are more inclined to follow the way of Christ when they are compelled to make a radical alteration in their lives than they are when the way is made easy for them. The human heart senses its need to be changed, and when religion appears offering life without change, it is not taken seriously by thinking men. The superficial, the insincere, may embrace such a low-powered brand of religion, but the seeking heart must reject it as false and unreal.

All conformity to the world is a negation of our Christian character and a surrender of our heavenly position.

Let us plant ourselves on the hill of Zion and invite the world to come over to us, but never under any circumstances will we go over to them. The cross is the symbol of Christianity, and the speaks of death and separation, never compromise. No on ever compromised with a cross. The cross separated between two dead and the living. The timid and the fearful will cry "Extreme!" and they will be right. The cross is the essence of all that is extreme and final. The message of Christ is a call across a gulf of death to life, from sin to righteousness and from Satan to God.

The first step for any Christian who is seeking spiritual power is to accept his unique position as a son of heaven temporarily detained on the earth, and to begin to live as becometh a saint. The sharp line of demarcation between him and the wold will appear at once - and the world will never quite forgive him. And the sons of earth will make him pay well for separation, but it is a price he will gladly pay for the privilege of walking in fruitfulness and power.

Is Mother Theresa A Christian?

Important woman of the world series.
edited by Geek Wife

And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
II Corinthians 11:14

Blasphemy from the Lips of Mother Theresa
Here's a quote from Mother Theresa. She is the Catholic's Catholic.
Many praise her for her good works and use her as an example of a model Christian [Lord have mercy, Jesus]. You will see from the following quotes that Mother Theresa believes that Jesus is a piece of bread and that the Catholic "Mary" is leading her to Jesus [Lord have mercy, Jesus]. Mother Theresa is NOT SAVED and Jesus said that when the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. She is on her way to hell, taking others with her and I hope she is converted before it is too late.

In this quote, she is addressing priests at the Worldwide Retreat for Priests in October 1984, in Paul VI Audience Hall, Vatican City:
"At the word of a priest, that little piece of bread becomes the body of Christ...Then you give this bread to us, so that we too might live and become holy..."
[context of next statement: Yemen wanted nuns to help them but had no chapel] "I explained that I wanted to give them sisters, but the trouble was that, without a priest, without Jesus going with them, our sisters couldn't go anywhere [oh, so the priests control Jesus]...

I was so struck with the thought that only when the priest is there can we have our altar and our tabernacle and our Jesus. Only the priest can PUT Jesus there for us...Jesus wants to go there [oh, so Jesus is powerless without the priest], but we cannot bring him unless you first give him to us."

[still talking to priests] "...This is one of the reasons you are called 'another Christ.'" [note: the definition of antichrist is a false Christ! There's only one Jesus all else are impostors!]"
I make no apologies for loudly proclaiming that this is NOT my Jesus, this is NOT the Jesus of the Bible!!!! Look at what Mother Theresa said about "Mary" in the same speech:
"Let us ask [Mary] to be our Mother, guiding us and protecting us...she is always leading us to Jesus [The Bible doesn't say that!]

I Heard This With My Own Two Ears...
The event that I'm about to describe occurred just after I started to walk with the Lord.
I was visiting a Methodist service on a military base and a departing minister stood up before the congregation in his white robe looking pious. He said something like, "We must embrace our Catholic brothers and sisters. After all, they believe 99.5% of the things that we do."

That is a lie..!!!
The only way a person can be my brother or sister is if they know Jesus Christ in the pardon of their sins and newness of life in accordance with the Bible. The Catholic believes that knowing Jesus is eating His flesh and drinking His blood through transubstantiation which is heresy. [According to the law in Leviticus 17:10 eating blood is strictly forbidden. The command remains in the New Testament--see Acts 15:20, 15:29, 21:25. Therefore, drinking the blood of Jesus cannot be justified no matter how you look at it.]

That man stood up in front of the congregation desensitizing people to the cult of Mary and it probably worked on most--but it ain't workin' here. Tell people the truth and pull them out of the flames of hell!
The worst danger of ecumenism (all religions getting together in unity) is telling heretics that their religion is okay. They will not try to find out the truth and the lake of fire will be their eternal home. Christians, fight ecumenism tooth and nail. You have the light--LET IT SHINE. Don't be afraid, tell the truth to Catholics and others in false religions so that they can be saved from certain eternal death. Base everything you say on the word of God--it's our sword.

One Time, No More
The sacrifice of Jesus Christ occurred one time never to be repeated. Hebrews 10:12-14 says,
But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;
From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

The Answer to Our Question
Mother Theresa is not a Christian. She is an idolater that worships bread, wine, statues, and men. God commands His people to stay away from people like this. Don't use her as an example in Sunday School classes. Don't use her as an example anywhere. The Bible gives this clear command to Christians:

Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

II John 9-11

[Editor's note: This article was written about 4-6 months before Mother Theresa died on 9-5-97.]

The following is a CNN article claiming Mother Teresa underwent exorcism.

Archbishop: Mother Teresa underwent exorcism
September 5, 2001 Posted: 10:05 AM EDT (1405 GMT)
By Satinder Bindra
CNN New Delhi Bureau

CALCUTTA, India (CNN) -- Senior church officials in Calcutta acknowledge Mother Teresa had an exorcism performed on her in the latter years of life.
The exorcism took place in a hospital where she had gone for cardiac problems, said Archbishop of Calcutta Henry D'Souza. The archbishop himself had been hospitalized at the same facility and shared the same doctor as Mother Teresa.
He said he noticed that while Mother Teresa was calm during the day, at night she appeared "extremely agitated." D'Souza said Mother Teresa would pull off wires and other monitoring equipment stuck to her body.

He said that is when he believed Mother Teresa "might be under the attack of the evil one." He offered to arrange for an exorcism for the elderly nun. She agreed.
"So I said let's do the prayer of exorcism over her.

So I called one of the priests who was a holy man in Calcutta," D'Souza said. "I told him, 'Please say the prayer of exorcism over Mother Teresa.' And he got a shock and said, 'Shall I pray and should I drive out the devil if it's there?'"
"I said, 'Yes, you do.'

But he says, 'What will the devil do to me?' I said to him, 'You command the devil to go if he's there. In the name of the church, as archbishop, I command you to go and do it.'"
After the exorcism was over, the archbishop said Mother Teresa "slept like a baby."

He emphasized that other great religious leaders faced similar challenges.
D'Souza said the revelations about Mother Teresa show that she was "both holy and human," making her even more special.

The archbishop also corroborated earlier reports on CNN that Mother Teresa felt abandoned by God at times during her life.
Those revelations were first made to CNN by Mother Teresa's closest confidante, Sister Nirmala, who now heads the order, Missionaries of Charity, established by Mother Theresa in 1950.

"This is part of the spiritual life of people, and God sometimes wants to unite the soul very closely to himself. He will allow them to feel abandoned by Him. And Jesus also on the cross felt he was abandoned," Sister Nirmala said.

She said Mother Teresa is most remembered for her humanness -- "How human she was, how loving she was. How she wanted to be just one of us."
D'Souza told CNN that Mother Teresa felt abandoned particularly in her early years -- feelings she revealed in letters.

He said in one letter she wrote that she had been walking the streets of Calcutta all day searching for a house where she could start her work.
"At the end of the day, she came back and she wrote in her diary, 'Today, I wandered the streets the whole day. My feet are aching and I have not been able to find a home. And I also get the temptation, of the tempter telling me, "Leave all this, go back to the convent in which you came."'"

She found her home and the rest is history. The Missionaries of Charity feeds 500,000 families a year in Calcutta alone, treats 90,000 leprosy patients annually and educates 20,000 children every year.
Millions of Indians marked the fourth anniversary of her death (she died September 5, 1997). The archbishop led a Mass Wednesday morning at the Motherhouse, where Mother Teresa lived. Statues in the house were decorated with garlands and her grave was bedecked in flowers.
The Vatican has begun the process of trying to declare her a saint who dedicated her life to the service of the poor.

"Today, Mother is with God. Now in his presence, she has more power with God. She is no more on earthly level," Sister Nirmala said. "She has passed to eternal life. There she is very, very powerful." [is that so?]

"Mother" Teresa - A study on Catholicism

Important woman of the world series.
edited by Geek Wife

"Mother" Teresa was born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu of Albanian parents in what is now Yugoslavia/Bosnia on 8/27/10. The diminutive nun arrived 1/6/29 in India, where she started assisting the needy and eventually established the now-global "Missionaries of Charity" organization.

"Mother" Teresa, and those who work with her, never try to convert to Christ the dying people for whom they care. Instead, "Mother" Teresa declares: "If in coming face to face with God we accept Him in our lives, then we are converting. We become a better Hindu, a better Muslim, a better Catholic, a better whatever we are. ... What God is in your mind you must accept" (from Mother Teresa: Her People and Her Work , by Desmond Doig, p. 156, as quoted by Dave Hunt, Global Peace and the Rise of Antichrist , p. 149).
Acknowledging that "Mother" Teresa is a good woman from the human perspective, does not answer the question: Is "Mother" Teresa a regenerate Christian in the Biblical sense--a woman and an organization with which Christians should associate and work?

The secular world has honored her with the Nobel Peace Prize (1979) and accolades on every hand. In 6/85, she received from President Reagan the highest United States civilian honor, the Medal of Freedom award. In 10/85, she received the "warmest ovation of the United Nation's 40th anniversary celebration." It is not all that surprising to see the world, Catholicism, and liberal Protestantism offer unqualified applause to "Mother" Teresa.

More significant and difficult to understand is the applause being given to her by those claiming to be Bible-believing Christians. This, though, is evidenced on every hand ("Is Mother Teresa a True Christian?" by David W. Cloud, pp. 5-6). "Mother" Teresa is a thorough-going Catholic. She is a great worshiper of Mary; she believes the cracker of the mass is Jesus Christ; she believes all men are children of God. In her speech before the United Nations in October 1985, she said, "We gather to thank God for the 40 years of the beautiful work of the United Nations for the good of the people. No color, no religion, no nationality should come between us--we are all children of God. ... When we destroy an unborn child, we destroy God" (11/11/85 Christian News ).

Other notable quotes from "Mother" Teresa (12/4/89 Time , pp. 11 & 13):

(a) "The dying, the crippled, the mentally ill , the unwanted, the unloved--they are Jesus in disguise . ... [through the] poor people I have an opportunity to be 24 hours a day with Jesus." [On another occasion, she again demonstrated her pantheistic religious philosophy: "Every AIDS victim is Jesus in a pitiful disguise; Jesus is in everyone.. ... [AIDS sufferers are] children of God [who] have been created for greater things" (1/13/86 Time ).]

(b) "You must make them feel loved and wanted. They are Jesus for me."

(c) "I love all religions. ... If people become better Hindus, better Muslims, better Buddhists by our acts of love, then there is something else growing there." [On another occasion, she again demonstrated her false gospel that 'there are many ways to God': "All is God--Buddists, Hindus, Christians, etc., all have access to the same God."]

It should be clear that "Mother" Teresa is anything but an Evangelical Christian. She is a self-sacrificing woman who is following a false religion. Consider some quotes from her speech at the 10/84 Worldwide Retreat for Priests:

(a) "At the word of a priest, that little piece of bread becomes the body of Christ, the Bread of Life."

(b) "Without a priest, without Jesus going with them, our sisters couldn't go anywhere."

(c) "When the priest is there, then can we have our altar and our tabernacle and our Jesus. Only the priest put Jesus there for us. ... Jesus wants to go there, but we cannot bring him unless you first give him to us. This is why I love priests so much. We could never be what we are and do the things we do without you priests who first bring Jesus to us."

(d) "Mary ... is our patroness and our Mother, and she is always leading us to Jesus."

No one would deny that "Mother" Teresa is doing a marvelous piece of wonderful humanitarian work among the poor and neglected of the world, but what gospel does she preach to them?

She is definitely not leading them to the one, true, eternal salvation through the finished sacrifice of Calvary. "Mother" Teresa provides the classic example of compassionate and charitable deeds divorced from truth. She says that her purpose is to bring her patients closer to the "God" in whom they already believe; so that a Hindu becomes a better Hindu, a Buddhist a better Buddhist, etc. (Vatican II says those of all religions are somehow saved through the Church.) She tells how to witness for Jesus: In an interview with a nun who works with "Mother" Teresa (reported in Christian News ), dying Hindus were instructed to pray to their own Hindu gods!:

"These people are waiting to die. What are you telling them to prepare them for death and eternity? She replied candidly, 'We tell them to pray to their Bhagwan, to their gods.'"

She was instructing these staunch Hindus to pray sincerely to their own Hindu idols and she felt that if they did this, God would certainly not judge them! No matter how plausible from man's earthly vantage point, when good works are conducted by unregenerate religious people, what is promoted is a cursed false gospel, encouraging the lost heathen to have hope in their false gods, even as they lay upon their death beds. In God's eyes, therefore, the entire endeavor is a cursed one, and no Christian should support, assist, or praise a work cursed by God!

The following is from an interview with a Catholic nun, "Sister" Ann, who worked in Kathmandu, Nepal, with "Mother" Teresa's organization Missionaries of Charity. The interview was conducted 11/23/84 at the Pashupati Temple.

Q: Do you believe if they die believing in Shiva or in Ram
[Hindu gods] they will go to heaven?

A: Yes, that is their faith. My own faith will lead me to God,
... So if they have believed in their god very strongly, if they have faith,
surely they will be saved. Q: Today it does not seem that the Catholic Church is
trying to convert anymore. I know that John Paul II is saying now that those of
other religions are saved. You do not believe they are lost anyway, right? A:
No, they are not lost. They are saved according to their faith, you know. If
they believe whatever they believe, that is their salvation.

Obviously, then, "Mother" Teresa is both a pantheist and a Universalist--Universalists maintain that Muslims, Hindus, Jews, and other non-Christians can get to heaven without saving faith in Christ; they are those who believe that all who sincerely follow their own religions or beliefs will be saved. "Mother" Teresa tells Muslims and Jews that they worship the same God that Christians worship. "Mother" Teresa has even called atheistic communists children of God!

"Mother" Teresa is very much in the mainstream of the ecumenical world evangelization project "Evangelization 2000." She was on hand in June, 1987, by invitation, to help dedicate the offices of Evangelization 2000 in Rome. She is an honorary member of Lumen 2000, the electronic media aspect of Evangelization 2000. The first issue of New Evangelization 2000 features "Mother" Teresa prominently with photographs of her, and one entire article entitled, "Mother Teresa Promises Support." (Reported in the 2/15/93 Bold Truth Press .) ["Mother" Teresa was also scheduled to join the Dalai Lama and hundreds of other world religious leaders at the Parliament of the World's Religions in 1993 in Chicago, Illinois. She was scheduled to lead a closed session of key participants on future co-operative efforts among the world's religions, but was forced to cancel for health reasons.]

"Mother" Teresa is also involved in various projects with New Agers and "one-worlders." In 1985, "Mother" Teresa attended a conference sponsored by the United Nations University of Peace whose featured agenda was a call to bring about the New World Order. Others participating in the "Spirit of Peace" conference included Marilyn Ferguson, leading proponent of the New Age movement; Prince Bernhardt of the Netherlands, commonly known as a leader of the one-world secret elitist society, the Bilderbergers; "His Holiness" Tenzin Gyatso, the XIV Dalai Lama of Tibet; Helen Caldicott, president of "Physicians for Social Responsibility," an organization favoring U.S. unilateral disarmament; Bishop Desmond Tutu, proponent of leftist revolution in South Africa; and New Ager Robert Muller, Ass't. Secretary General of the U.N., in charge of co-ordinating the work of 32 specialized agencies and world programs. [Reported in "Ecumenism, 'Global Spirituality' and Mother Teresa," Christian Inquirer (April 1985), p. 26; and The Prophecy Newsletter (Vol. 1, No. 5, p. 6.)]

"Mother" Teresa also participated in the "Summit for Peace" in Assisi, Italy, in November 1986. This blasphemous prayer meeting was arranged by the Pope and was attended by leaders of many different religions, including Hindu, Buddhist, Islamic, Shinto, Sikh, and North American Indian--all of whom united in prayers for world peace (11/10/86 Time , pp. 78-79).

[Mother Theresa died in 1997 and based on the gospel she taught and lived by, she is now awaiting the White Throne Judgment and will be judged for her sins. While many ignorant Protestant clergy still laud her as a true Christian, she was anything but. No one will ever deny she did true humanitarian work but she came in the name of a false gospel, she preached a false gospel, and died in that false gospel. The way of salvation is through Christ and Christ alone. No one can work their way to Heaven, for if we could, then Christ died in vain because salvation would have been available by human effort. Self-works are an affront to the Cross of Christ. Mother Teresa is another casualty of the false church of Rome. If you are reading this and want to follow in her footsteps, you have become seduced by a false system and in need of salvation. - Dr. Ken Matto]
