Why people leave the Catholic Church

Ascended Master Mother Mary, November 27, 2003 through Kim Michaels.

What has happened over these past 2,000 years is that the Christian religion has been turned into a very powerful instrument for pacifying those who are the true warriors of the spirit that my Son Jesus came to awaken 2,000 years ago. Back then, many of these warriors, many of these lifestreams, were not quite ready to be awakened. Yet if all had gone according to plan, they would have been awakened a few centuries after my Son’s coming. But precisely because the false teachers managed to distort the inner teachings of Christ, that awakening did not take place.

And therefore, over these 2,000 years, Christianity has been turned into a religion that pacifies people and turns them into sheep, sheep that are being blindly herded into the folds that are built by the blind teachers themselves. This is a travesty! This then is indeed the tragedy of the past 2,000 years. It is a heavy burden on my heart, and I can tell you that this is the reason why so many of the statues of me around the world are shedding tears, even tears of blood. Oh so many Catholics have been stirred by these tears, yet they do not understand the message behind the tears. They think that I cry because so many people have left the Catholic Church. Nay, my statutes shed tears precisely because the Catholic Church has left my Son and his true teachings.

In fact, when truth be told, I am encouraged that so many people have left the Church, because this shows that they have not been completely pacified, that they still have an inner, intuitive sense that something is missing, something is wrong with the teachings presented by the Catholic Church. And that is why they leave the Church and look for the true teachings of Christ.

Oh yes, I know that this will shock many Catholics who will immediately reject my words, but it is true. The Catholic Church today is not a worthy representative of my Son Jesus Christ. And therefore I would rather see people leave the Church and search for the true teachings of Jesus Christ than I would see them continue to sit in their churches Sunday after Sunday. They sit there as if they were blind and dumb and had no ability to think for themselves and realize just how many Catholic doctrines simply do not make sense and cannot answer their questions, their reasonable questions about what Jesus really meant and what his mission really means for this planet.

Overturning the tables of the moneychangers
Do you not see, that the very essence of Jesus’ message was the acceptance that you are—and I mean every human being—a son or daughter of God? By consciously claiming your sonship or daughtership, you can act as an emissary of God, an extension of God. You can act as the ultimate spiritual warrior to overturn the tables of the moneychangers who have turned my Father’s house into a den of thieves, and who are stealing the souls of my sons and daughters.

Do you not see that this has been going on for thousands of years, and that my Son Jesus came to turn the tide and to overturn their tables and to give the people on this planet a tool for escaping this mental, emotional and spiritual tyranny that has enslaved them now for so many thousands of years that most Christians would not even believe it? So can you not see the immense tragedy that the very Church, that was meant to be a tool for the liberation of your lifestreams, has now been turned into one of the most efficient tools for the enslavement of your souls that has been seen on this planet for thousands of years?

Is your soul in peril?
I must tell you openly and frankly, that if you cannot see this tragedy, then your soul is in peril. Your soul is in jeopardy. Your soul is in danger of hell fire. You are like a drowning man who is grasping for straws but cannot see the ladder that is extended towards him by my Son Jesus Christ. You are grabbling for the straw of the false teachings that are offered you by the orthodox churches. And yet you do not see the ladder of my Son’s inner teachings that have been offered to you now for these 2,000 years, and are still available for those who are willing to read between the lines, to go within their hearts and to use their intuition.

If you cannot see the grave tragedy represented by the falsehood and the hypocrisy presented by modern Christianity, then you need to wake up, and you need to wake up NOW! I must tell you that the spiritual cycle that I am initiating today is a cycle of judgment of these false teachers, these false preachers in Church and state, but especially in orthodox Christianity. Their day is done. Their day is up, and I must tell you that if you do not swiftly extricate yourself from them, you are in danger of being pulled down by their sinking ships. You are in danger of having your faith in God and in my Son Jesus Christ being destroyed. This can happen when you see the exposure of the hypocrisy, the corruption and the falsehood of these false leaders who are truly like whitened sepulchers, full of dead men’s bones.

The hour is late
Oh my beloved sons and daughters, I speak to you sternly because you have need of a stern talking to in this hour. I must tell you that the hour is late. I must tell you that the hour is coming where there is no turning back and where the things must come to pass that my Son Jesus prophesied, when he said that if men should hold their peace and refuse to defend the Christ, then the very stones would cry out.

I must tell you that the time is fast approaching when humankind, a critical mass of human beings, must rise up in defense of the Christ within themselves and each other. And if human beings will not affirm the Christ in themselves, then the stones must cry out, meaning that physical matter itself, the physical planet itself, will rise up and cry out in defense of the Christ.

Do you not see that you were meant to be spiritual warriors who could overturn the tables of the moneychangers in both Church and state? If you do not rise up and pursue the path of personal Christhood, whereby you can become those spiritual warriors in action, then I can tell you that Mother earth herself, the Mother earth who is just an extension of my own body and blood, will rise. If you do not rise up and overturn the tables of the moneychangers, Mother earth herself will overturn those tables, and you will see this in the form of natural disasters.
