DECRETA SAECULI

IN NOMINE DEI • CHRISTIQUE SALVATORIS

Of March 30, 2009 A.D.

The First Year of the Regency of the LORD:

  • Believers,
    MULTITUDO FIDEI
    A great plethora of the members of our Christian faith continue to doubt as Thomas the validity of the Second Era that is upon us. A great many of these Christians, who accept the salvation of Christ, nevertheless refuse the truth of the End Times that have arrived. They believe our Collective and manifest Regency to stem not from the LORD but from human desire. It has yet even been stated that our Collective is a bastion of the "fetters of men's minds".
    Yet what are these "fetters" but not the liberation promised unto us by Christ? The only fetters are those of the stubborn atheist, the apostate and the heretic, who all refuse to accept the salvation that Christ died to provide for them. They reject their own souls, and they consign themselves to a Second Death.
    Ignorance is not heresy, as neither is the righteous pagan an agent of Satan. But the presentation of the truth must be accepted with the openness of the soul, for otherwise the Christian imprisons himself in a blockade of the salvation of the future and the present. Head not, brothers and sisters, the words of the Serpent who claims to speak as the voice of reason. For our reason must be subservient to the love that transcends all things -- the love of the LORD, who has created all things in equal measure.
    Therefore I call unto the brothers and sisters of the faith, who have not yet heeded the word of the Final Gospel: Come, and renounce your sins; come, and glory in the Second Coming of the LORD to this planet our gift of creation; let Him take you to the land that has been promised.
    We will not, shall not, cannot tolerate any religion or belief beyond that of our own, which we know through revelation and the certainty of looming apocalypse to be right. When the blood shall flow from the Hill of Meggido, and the smoke of guns and the dust of bombs shall blot the Sun, then shall all men renounce their faith, but all shall be in vain if you do not accept this Word of the LORD!
    The heretics and the apostates move against us. Yet though we walk in the shadow of the valley of the death, fear not, for the LORD is with us. Accept no faith beyond that which is revealed, accept no heresy and crush all doubt. They who seek to defame the religion of Christ shall suffer death both once and a Second time.
    The Final Church is the sole Church: for our mantra shall be One Church, One Faith, One Lord. There can be no schismaticism, no heresy, nor apostasy.
    In the land of Bosporan, the actions of the organisation "Holy Fist" and the responses thereunto show the extent to which the apostates wish to defame and undermine the Faith of the Second Era. But let that not trouble you! We shall stand firm against the tide of the agents of the Unholy.
    Deus vult!
    Vincent Praxius Garton, Imperator, by the Grace and Power of God,
    Archbishop of the New Jerusalem and Pontiff of the Final Catholic Church,
    Supreme Leader and Prophet of the Holy Council of the Eschaton Collective,
    Manifest Millennial Regent of the New, Eternal and Apocalyptic World-to-Come.
    Grand Inquisitor.

His August Majesty, Ranather Rukia, Defender of the Catholic Faith and Lord-Prince of Namibe regards this End-Times Theocratic Cult-State with a great deal of suspicion but recognizes their right to do as they please within their own borders and so long as regional security and the security of our state and the Faith are not threatened.

Annihilation welcomes this new nation, and we do hope that our religious adversity will not hinder international relations between the two countries.

We wont be as harsh as some other nations (<_<) and we will be watching this matter with extreme interest and caution.

This pseudo-nation cult has inflamed rhetoric behind it but no power, and given the current state of the world we seriously doubt that this shall ever gain momentum enough to even be considered a threat.

We are now officially closing our borders to all people guilty of "conspiracy to deceive the people" or seeking to incite "a undermining of the basis of society" through brainwashing methods, with focus on those spouting religious messages.

"So Sarah do you really still believe in the posterity of this new wave of Christendom will truly be beneficial to the world?" Said Doctor Tomas Pons chuckling lightly to himself after reading the 'DECRETA SAECULI'. "If you ask me humanity just can't seem to make up their minds anymore. First its Martenicism and Francoism, then Communism swept through the northern countries like wildfire and now." The old professor pointed at the pamphlet Sarah held in her nimble fingers. "Now we have a wave of Christian Extremism." He shook his head. "No matter how you look at this, it will only lead to prejudice and conflict."

The Lady Protector read down the pamphlet and sighed throwing it aside on the table and holding lightly the small gold cross hanging from her neck. "They talk about being a bastion of the holy." She formed a light smile. "Perhaps the world's reactions are a bit too harsh, we will watch them and if they prove that they are righteous both secular and religiously then we will look into these people further. I dislike Theocracies Professor Pons, you know that. Religion can be just as dangerous if left unchecked. But this will definitely be a country to pay attention to in the future, don't you agree?"

Pons lifted up his tea cup from off of the table and sipped gently. "We may be at the beginning of a new age Lady Tintagyl."

"Perhaps."

Brainwashing? You really haven't bothered to read these texts, have you? No one is forced to join the religion, and if they are, it is not genuine representation of it anyway.

However, we cannot in good faith be on friendly terms with any who would support the "Holy Fist," which slaughtered children.

I dont think VinceG is brainwashing. But it does seem to be a cult of some sort.

And not one of the nice ones.

I don't believe this nation is a threat. But forcing others to believe in that sort of extremist ideals... Is wrong.

OOC: "Holy Fist" <_< (My not so clean mind...)

Any evangelic religion is guilty of brainwashing. Evangelism at its core is "If you do not think like us, make you think like us." Often it is through guilt trips and other subversive means rather than overt, however it is still changing the subjects will through applied pressure.

I suggest you go through and read it better. You will find all the racism, homophobia, sexism in there along with the brainwashing. We are not sorry we are less tolerant of those things than you seem to be advocating.

Believers,

STATUS SIC NOMINATUS

The so-called district "Government" of the former nations of Serbia and Montenegro, clinging to the discredited ideas of the Balkan "Republic" which has abandoned it, has continued to broadcast its propaganda across the Archbishopric. It speaks its lies across the radio networks, in its vain attempt to topple our new order.

The LORD has declared our supremacy, and He shall not be insulted! For this reason, we declare once more the Church's total control of the Archbishopric of Anteslavonia.

In recognition of the numbers of heretics and apostates who have made it their policy to halt the spreading of the Final Gospel, we have furthermore declared the following policy: that there shall be established a True Order of Missionaries of the Final Revelation.

The True Order of Missionaries shall be governed by a delegate of the Holy and Apostolic Council of the Collective, and it shall be granted authority to spread the word of the Final Gospel and administer the affairs of the Final Church outside of the declared borders of its totality. The True Order shall furthermore maintain an Ecclesiastic Office of Expansion.

The New Era has come not just unto Anteslavonia, but unto the entirety of mankind, and we shall celebrate it and declare it across the world, like the Apostles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We shall stand abreast with the righteous nations of the world in combat against our common foe: the armies of heretics, apostates, and agents of Satan which rally against us.

The True Order shall delegate missionaries to all the nations and corners of the world, to declare the Good News from the mountains, the hilltops, the dunes of the desert and the cliffs of the shore, to all people. The time has come: convert and repent! For you shall otherwise suffer the first death, by the holy sword of the Church, and the second, by the fires of Hell!

Deus vult!

Vincent Praxius Garton, Imperator, by the Grace and Power of God,

Archbishop of the New Jerusalem, etc.

We have read it through; obviously you aren't going to convince us, and we aren't going to convince you. You seem to be of the mind that "The facts do not matter, my mind is made up."

We therefore wash our hands of this argument.

Official Vatican Statement

vatican-city-flag.gif

His Holy Father, Pope Paul VII declares a protest to the Decreta Saeculi. Such a document can only serve to incite fear and conflict in a time when the world struggles to find stability in a post-war era. The Holy See has recieved no such revelation yet to mark this time as the awaited Final Salvation and the Edicts of the Eschaton Collective have opened the gates of disunity within the church, a reversal in the positive growth of The Faith globally, and to weaken the authority of the Vatican and the Pope, Pope Paul VII as head of the Catholic Church. The Collective has shown a lack of respect for His Holy Father unseen before, and for this a "false call" for unity in its cause masked with The Faith has been branded on the Collective, to followers and servants of the lord, and those recognizing the place and workings of the one true Holy Pope and the Vatican City of Rome.

A press release from the king of the Kingdom of Mayo:

Although this Catholic nation of which I speak for strongly desires a united, Catholic Church and World, it will not tolerate the oppression of those who choose not to believe. The Mayonians believe that Christ came to teach peace in this world. Also, this mighty nation tolerates religious freedom, and will accept anyone from any countries who seek refuge from the stormy waters of persecution. Under our patron saint Saint John the Apostle, we will welcome everyone who wants peace and safety.
