REVIEW BY PETA
While I don’t agree with many of the justifications and interpretations provided on the website, it is still a decent resource for anyone trying to understand more about the Christian Church.
It has a reasonably extensive index list on the main menu, which covers a surprisingly large variety of modern topics, such as women in the church, evolution and abortion.
1) Wrong: The quote from George Orwell on the other hand feels VERY misplaced, since he renounced his faith and spent most of his life, and his entire career, publicly denouncing the Catholic Church.
Why: George Orwell, like all of us, had freedom of expression. And he used this freely, blessing the world with a library of beautiful and accurate quotations, such as the one on THCC. His criticism of the Pseudo-Catholic church, which Jesus himself condemns in the Gospel, is no reason to disregard his literary excellence, so beautifully manifesting his high intelligence and his understanding of the Christian religion. And, as he also had freedom of religion, he could accept or denounce any religion.
2) Wrong: The Homepage refers to the violence of the old world (old testament), however, I feel like this is a slightly narrow look at history since other religions at the time were already promoting peace and advocating for non-violence (Buddhism in India, the doctrine of Ahimsa in Hinduism, Jainism in China).
Why: Would it be correct that in the time of Noach and his early descendants, or even two thousand years thereafter, Buddha, Ahimsa and Jain Darma were preaching and practising peace with thousands of followers, yet the vast majority of peoples were violent: and thus these peaceful beings were but three grains of good-hearted sand in miles of ruthless desert. The world was very violent: period.
3) Wrong: Another quote that stood out was ‘Nation conquers nation for thousands of years, until modern times’, yet for most of its existence, the church has been sending missionaries and explorers all over the world to convert people and
essentially conquer them via religion (Magellan or Cortes). Meanwhile, the Australian Aborigines and many other
civilizations had an intricate system of treaties and laws to govern who could marry who, and what actions could be
taken if an injustice was perceived.
Why: Reader’s comments are out of context here and simply make no sense. She says that, because the Pseudo-Catholics, as well as the Genuine-Catholics, have been sending missionaries all over the world, nation did not conquer nation? We all know that Apostles and missionaries were killed by the same violent world, because the violence continued, despite their endeavours.
4) Wrong: I thought it was interesting that the Church believes that people who are baptized can’t commit sins, only
transgressions. Yet history tells us that being baptized doesn’t stop people committing major sins (Mussolini, Castro, Al
Why: With ‘The Church’ the reader denotes the site THCC and not the ‘Spiritual Assembly of the Repented and Baptised’. This site, indeed, represents the Christian Church, educating every deluded believer, as well as novices in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, in what the Gospel teaches. The reader does not understand what ‘Baptism‘ is, so she believes that one can sin thereafter: but Jesus tells you that this is NOT possible. A baptised person is reborn of INCORRUPTIBLE seed, and thus ‘HOLY‘ and incapable to revert to sin.
The persons who claim to be baptised but yet sin, we should know, are deluded or frauds: the first being of inferior intelligence or simply unaware that they have been deceived, and the latter hypocrites or plain deceivers.
Your ever so ardent, stalwart and tenacious servant
of one accord with the true Apostolic church, constituted by the Gospel and build on Jesus – The Christ.
