Last week, I wrote about how the Mother of God appeared on six occasions during 1917 to three children in Fatima, Portugal, and asked them to warn the people of the world that they needed to pray and amend their lives. In one of her apparitions, the Blessed Mother told the children, “More souls go to hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.”
She then told them that war is a punishment from God for the sins of mankind. She warned that if her requests for prayer and reparation were not heeded, “good people will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, [and] various nations will be annihilated.” Her appearances occurred during World War I, which began in July 1914 and ended in November 1918.
Despite our Lady’s warning, the sins of the flesh accelerated. The most egregious of those sins was the sin of contraception, which became much easier to engage in because of the invention and mass production of the latex condom, which began in 1929. The newly developed processes for manufacturing and distribution produced thousands of condoms per week, which allowed couples to have easy access to affordable birth control that was never available to them before.
Despite prohibitions against contraception that were in place within the Christian and Catholic communities, there was widespread acceptance among Christians and Catholics of this new form of birth control. Although couples knew better than to practice contraception, the latex condom provided couples with a way to experience the pleasure of sex without the sacrifices associated with pregnancy, birth, and the raising of children to adulthood.
Within a generation of the introduction of the latex condom, the majority of Christian and Catholic couples were practicing contraception.
The sin of contraception is so grievous that the Catholic Church has always taught that it is a mortal sin that cuts off the sanctifying grace that a couple needs for their marriage and their family. All methods of contraception (the condom, the pill, sterilization, etc.) have the same effect — the breaking of the link between sex and procreation.
When God created man and woman, He gave them a special gift that allowed them to “connect” in an intimate and spiritual way — a connection that we now understand includes the participation of the Holy Spirit. This special connection occurs only when the gift of sex is open to new life and is utilized within the framework of marriage.
According to the Book of Genesis, the first command that was given by God to Adam and Eve was, “Be fruitful and multiply.” In order to comply with God’s wishes, Adam and Eve were given the gift of sex. With this gift, they were given the knowledge that the primary purpose of sex was for procreation.
The Mother of God’s prophecy that the world would have much to suffer if the sins of the flesh continued was fulfilled in 1939, 10 years after the introduction of the latex condom. That’s when World War II began. The war didn’t end until six years later (1945). As a result of the war, tens of millions of civilians and soldiers were killed, and millions more were wounded.
So what has happened in the 70-plus years since the end of World War II? Have the people of the world repented, prayed for guidance, and changed their lives. The answer is no. Today, we have more sexual sins than ever, which include very reliable forms of contraception, millions of abortions each year, rampant premarital sex and adultery, pornography that is available to anyone who has access to a smartphone, homosexual and transgender behavior that is being forced upon our society, and other forms of deviant sexual perversion such as new technology that will provide sex robots to anyone who wants them.
With all the sins of the flesh that are currently taking place in our modern society, how is it that we’ve been able to avoid another world war? Why hasn’t the world been punished like it was with World War I and World War II?
In my opinion, the reason that God has not allowed another world war to occur is because while the sin of contraception was freely and voluntarily accepted and engaged in by tens of millions of couples in violation of God’s laws, the sins of abortion and homosexual marriage were legalized, endorsed, and forced upon us by the U.S. Supreme Court.
The people of our country did not freely and voluntarily choose to legalize abortion on demand and homosexual marriage on a national level. If abortion and homosexual marriage had been left to the people to decide on a national level, they would have had to vote for a constitutional amendment that legalized abortion and homosexual marriage. The legalization of abortion and homosexual marriage was forced upon our country by seven evil judges on the U.S. Supreme Court.
It is my belief that if the people of our country had voted to legalize abortion in 1973 instead of the law being unexpectedly changed by five judges on the U.S. Supreme Court, God would have allowed an extremely harsh punishment to occur, such as another world war. If that had happened, millions of American lives would have been lost.
The same holds true for the elimination of God from the public schools and public institutions, which only occurred because a handful of judges on the U.S. Supreme Court decided that God had no role to play in our lives and the lives of our children.
In His mercy, Almighty God has so far spared our country from the massive suffering that would take place in a modern-day war in which biological and nuclear weapons would be used against our population and our country.
Unlike World Wars I and II where our military engaged in battles that occurred in countries other than the United States, we wouldn’t be that fortunate if there were another world war. There is no doubt that if another world war were to take place today, there would be massive destruction of large sections of our country.
As a result of God’s infinite mercy, we now have five judges on the U.S. Supreme Court who we hope will put a stop to the imposition of new evil laws upon the more than 325 million Americans who have no vote on the Supreme Court. Those justices are John Roberts (conservative Catholic), Clarence Thomas (conservative Catholic), Samuel Alito (conservative Catholic), Neil Gorsuch (conservative Episcopalian who was raised Catholic) and Brett Kavanaugh (conservative Catholic).
There’s a good reason that the forces of evil were unleashed against Judge Brett Kavanaugh when he was nominated to replace retired Justice Anthony Kennedy on the U.S. Supreme Court. Kavanaugh’s enemies knew that if he was allowed to become a Supreme Court Justice, their ability to impose their diabolical laws on our country would be curtailed.
Over the next couple of years, another opportunity may arise for our president to appoint another judge to the U.S. Supreme Court. If that happens, there’s a good chance that we will have six out of nine Supreme Court Justices who will refuse to allow the forces of evil to impose their diabolical laws on our country. The court may even reverse some of the evil laws that were previously imposed on us.
We must remain vigilant in praying that we will someday be able to restore the Judeo-Christian laws, values, and beliefs that once dominated our society.
