“Life is short,
and Hell is forever”
Are you a Roman Catholic? So are the Dimond Brothers and they are here to tell you that ...“Life is short, and Hell is forever.” Too bad they don't believe in a Christ who fully accomplished the salvation of all those who believe in him as Lord, Savior and God in the flesh. They tell Roman Catholics why they should be afraid...very afraid. Revisiting the nightmares that went away when I learned what Christ had done for me.
“Life is short, and Hell is forever”
“Life is short,
and Hell is forever”
This cute little phrase is something that a couple of guys, who consider themselves serious traditional Roman Catholics use on other Roman Catholics to try to get their attention. I bet they do get their attention.
However, it is a shame these guys (the brothers Dimond) don't know or believe the true Gospel...that Christ alone by shedding his blood to the death on the cross truly saved those who believe in him and what he did for them... but I'm sure hell gets some people's attention.
Another way these guys get Catholic's attention is by scaring them into believing that they do not receive true sacraments when they receive from priests who were ordained after 1968. They (the Dimonds) claim that because the ordination rite was changed in '68, all those ordained that year and thereafter are not true priests. This is ridiculous. The bishop laid hands on these ordinands the same as he did before '68, so they're just as valid as any other priest...like me. This is why the Bible is so important. It shows us that the necessary "matter" when it comes to any kind of ordination is the laying on of hands. period.
My advice. Leave the church. Stay at home on Sundays and read the Bible or get a group together. These are the end times. Like Paul, priests are called by God. Who is called by God among you? Use the Gospel Mass at this site and get on with "church." Put all your trust in Christ for salvation and none in yourself.
If there is anything worthy about the following from the traditionalist Dimond brothers is that it at least illustrates that the stakes are high. Of course these guys also help me illustrate all the additional unbiblical required-for-salvation teachings of Roman Catholicism.
Most Roman Catholics, who know any thing about their religion, try not to think about the things that their religion requires in order for them to attain salvation. If you are a Roman Catholic and you’ve studied any of the church’s teachings (Catechism), you know that you need to be a pretty faithful Roman Catholic in order to attain heaven. Most people don’t talk about it because it can be pretty depressing. I mean, the fact of the matter is—the church teaches that you can go straight to Hell when you die for purposely missing a Sunday Mass, unless you confess it to a priest. Even that’s not enough unless you make the confession while truly intending to never miss a Mass again. That’s call having a “firm intention” to never do it again.
As tough as that is for most Roman Catholic ears to hear, occasionally, you find someone who will talk about it. In this case, the Dimond brothers.
The Dimonds are monks who believe that it is helpful to let Roman Catholics know what they are up against when it comes to their chances of getting to heaven. After reading the following excerpts that were researched and written down by the Dimonds, you will understand why Roman Catholics who take their religion seriously try to live in close proximity to a priest, or at least close enough. They know how important it is to have easy access to the only person on earth (the priest) who can give them absolution—that is—pronounce the forgiveness of their sins, following confession.
That’s my introduction, the following are excerpts researched and written by the Dimonds (end of commentary--you've been warned about the following) :
Some Basic Truths and Facts that Catholics must know
Since very few still have the faith and even fewer preach it, there is a widespread ignorance of even the basic truths of the Catholic Faith in our day. We will now review some of them:
Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, “Letentur coeli,” Sess. 6, July 6, 1439, ex cathedra: “We define also that… the souls of those who depart this life in actual mortal sin, or in original sin alone, go straightaway to Hell, but to undergo punishments of different kinds.”
Catholics must also know that all who die in mortal sin will go to Hell forever. Mortal sins include: murder,
fornication (i.e. sexual acts outside of marriage or acts leading up to sex outside of marriage),
consenting to impure thoughts,
looking at pornography,
taking God’s name in vain,
birth control (NFP) or artificial contraception,
assisting the propagation of heresy,
dishonoring the Sabbath,
breaking the commandments, etc.
If someone were to commit a mortal sin and then go to Confession, he must have the firm resolution never to commit the sin again. This is called the firm purpose of amendment. If a person commits a mortal sin and doesn’t have the firm purpose of amendment when he goes to Confession, he commits a sacrilege and the Confession is invalid. Most souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh. Those who are committing sins of the flesh need to stop immediately if they don’t want to perish forever in the fires of Hell.
Catholics must also understand that few are saved. Our Lord Jesus Christ revealed that the road to Heaven is straight and narrow and few find it, while the road to Hell is wide and taken by most (Mt. 7:13).
Matthew 7:13- “Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life, and few there are that find it!”
Luke 13:24- “Strive to enter by the narrow gate; for many, I say to you, shall seek to enter, and shall not be able.”
Scripture also teaches that almost the entire world lies in darkness, so much so that Satan is even called the “prince” (John 12:31) and “god” (2 Cor. 4:3) of this world.
1 John 5:19- “We know that we are of God, and the whole world is seated in wickedness.”
It is the sad fact of history that most people in the world are of bad will and don’t want the truth. That is why almost the whole world lies in darkness and on the road to perdition. This has been the case since the beginning. It was the case when only eight souls (Noah and his family) escaped God’s wrath in the deluge that covered the entire earth, and when the Israelites rejected God’s law and fell into idolatry over and over again.
The truth is that for those who truly believe in God, accept His full truth (the Catholic Faith), don’t compromise it and want to do the right thing, it’s not hard to reach Heaven. As Christ said, “My yoke is sweet and My burden light” (Mt. 11:30). The reason that so few make it is not because it’s that hard, but because they refuse to believe the simple and easy things He has revealed, and do the simple and easy things He has commanded. Those who do what God wants and believe what He says realize that they are much happier than they were before.
But the sad truth is that almost all people are of bad will. This is why the saints and Doctors of the Church have consistently taught only a very small percentage of people are saved. In fact, the saints and Doctors of the Church, even during the ages of faith, taught that most adult Catholics are lost.
St. Leonard of Port Maurice [A.D. 1676-1751], on the fewness of the saved: “After consulting all the theologians and making a diligent study of the matter, he [Suarez] wrote, ‘The most common sentiment which is held is that, among Christians [Catholics], there are more damned souls than predestined souls.’ Add the authority of the Greek and Latin Fathers to that of the theologians, and you will find that almost all of them say the same thing. This is the sentiment of Saint Theodore, Saint Basil, Saint Ephrem, Saint John Chrysostom. What is more, according to Baronius it was a common opinion among the Greek Fathers that this truth was expressly revealed to Saint Simeon Stylites and that after this revelation, it was to secure his salvation that he decided to live standing on top of a pillar for forty years, exposed to the weather, a model of penance and holiness for everyone. Now let us consult the Latin Fathers. You will hear Saint Gregory saying clearly, "Many attain to faith, but few to the heavenly kingdom." Saint Anselm declares, "There are few who are saved." Saint Augustine states even more clearly, "Therefore, few are saved in comparison to those who are damned." ...
When St. Leonard of Port Maurice (above) uses the term “Christian,” he means Catholics, not heretics. St. Leonard is repeating the consistent teaching of the Fathers and Doctors: most adult Catholics (not even including the non-Catholic world) are lost. If this was the sentiment about the salvation of Catholics in the ages of faith, what would they say today? If you have trouble accepting the truths presented on this website because “it’s just too hard to believe that this many people could be wrong or deceived,” consider the teaching of Our Lord and the saints above. Consider how much more true the teaching on the fewness of the saved is today:
“Lucia found Jacinta sitting alone, still and very pensive, gazing at nothing. ‘What are you thinking of, Jacinta?’ ‘Of the war that is going to come. So many people are going to die. And almost all of them are going to Hell.’” (Our Lady of Fatima, p. 94; p. 92 in some versions)
Jacinta of Fatima, who had visions of future events, said that of those who would die in World War II almost all of them would go to Hell.
St. Anselm: “If thou wouldst be certain of being in the number of the elect, strive to be one of the few, not of the many. And if thou wouldst be quite sure of thy salvation, strive to be among the fewest of the few… Do not follow the great majority of mankind, but follow those who enter upon the narrow way, who renounce the world, who give themselves to prayer, and who never relax their efforts by day or by night, that they may attain everlasting blessedness.” (Fr. Martin Von Cochem, The Four Last Things, p. 221.)
