When the dogmatic constitution "Unigenitus Deus" was issued (and confirmed by Pope Clement XI in 1713), condemning their leading theologian's opinions, many Jansenists not only refused to abide by the document, but chose to retrench their opposition by taking refuge in the "miraculous" cemetery of St.

Yet, I said, �you are [as mighty on earth] as gods, therefore all of you [should have been as righteous as] children of the Most High.� But [because you are corrupt judges,] you shall die [in your sin] like [all the other sinful] men���� Those Jews, who tried to stone their God, knew exactly what Jesus was saying.� They knew He was not deifying them; Jesus was judging them.� Interpreted in the context of Ps. 82, Jesus actually said, �You were supposed to have been the spiritual children of God and righteous judges, [�whose judgments would have been as irreversible as the words of gods,�] endowed with God�s wisdom and spiritual discernment.� How then, can you misjudge Me so completely that �you say of Him Whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, �You are blaspheming,� because I said I am the Son of God�� Believe My works that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him.�� �Therefore they SOUGHT AGAIN to seize Him, but He escaped out of their hand...�� To align oneself with those corrupt judges of Ps. 82 proves exactly the opposite of what blasphemers such as Copeland, Hinn, and Company are trying to be.� Humanity cannot and will never become gods � except in their own, twisted minds, of course.� THEIR RESTORATION DOCTRINE or NEW APOSTOLIC REFORMATION /RECONSTRUCTION COMES FROM FREEMASONRY, LATTER-DAY SAINTS AND MORMONISM In the contextual truth of Scripture and church history, the so-called � latter rain revival � is just another Kingdom-Now-here-on-earth doctrine .� Yet, the so-called �latter rain� or � Second Pentecost ,� [WHAT HAPPENED TO THE HOLY SPIRIT OF THE �FIRST� PENTECOST?] empowers the �mediating,� christ/godlike � Elijah spirit ,� and remains the crux on which the Charismatic/Pentecostal movement rides .� [Heb. 1:1-3, etc., state that ONLY JESUS IS THE N.

There are also instances of nearly unintelligible utterances in some Gnostic texts in which Aramaic words or other nom na barbara can be recognized in somewhat distorted form.
