The Latin Vulgate of Jerome was copied from the Old Latin or Italia Version made in 150 AD. That Latin masterpiece was corrupted by Jerome, and the last person to translate from that noble version was Saint John Wycliffe.

Saint John Wycliffe–the Morning Star of the Reformation–was a professor at Oxford University.

While at the university he discovered a copy of the Old Latin Version.

For translating the Bible from the Old Latin Version, and exposing the filthy habits of the monks, Saint John's bones were dug up and burned 44 years after his death!!

His translation caused a sensation in England and it looked like the break with the Papacy was imminent. Wycliffe had a Judas assistant named John Purvey (1354–1414). Purvey poisoned the Saint and after his death he edited his translation to conform to Jerome's perversion. Wycliffe was the last person to correctly translate the Bible. Most of the corrupt readings of the modern Bibles conform to Jerome's version (St. John 7:8).

After his death, the monks left no stone unturned in their search for copies of Wycliffe's English translation. Any copies found were promptly burned. At that time England was also experiencing a titanic struggle for supremacy between English and French. Wycliffe's translation tipped the scales in favor of English so he can also be called the "Father of the English Language."

For their translations, the Reformers of the 16th century used the original languages of Hebrew and Greek. That did not help them to transliterate Bible names. Some copies of his masterpiece translation might still be hidden away at Oxford University, but copies definitely exist in the Secret Archives of the Vatican.

Jerome's version was a perversion of the Old Latin Version!!

The Old Latin Version was used by the Christians of North Africa until the Muslim destroyed all the copies. It was the version that St. Patrick brought to Hibernia and the Scots used it at Lindisfarne and Iona.

The entire superstructure of the Vatican system is built on sinking sand . . . and not on the Rock of Ages....Every corrupt practice and doctrine can be traced back to the Latin Vulgate of Jerome.

The Latin hierarchy accepts the English language Douay-Rheims Version is an accurate translation of the Latin Vulgate Version.

In 382, Jerome was commissioned by Pope Damasus to revise the popular Latin translation of the Bible in use since at least 150 AD.

Jerome worked from one of the 50 copies which Constantine ordered from Eusebius of Caesarea.

It was called the Latin Vulgate and became the official version of the Vatican and the foundation of all their damnable heresies (II Saint Cephas 2:1).

The Council of Trent condemned every other translation of the Bible except for the Latin Vulgate:

Moreover, the same sacred and holy Synod,–considering that no small utility may accrue to the Church of God, if it be made known which out of all the Latin editions, now in circulation, of the sacred books, is to be held as authentic,–ordains and declares, that the said old and vulgate edition, which, by the lengthened usage of so many years, has been approved of in the Church, be, in public lectures, disputations, sermons and expositions, held as authentic; and that no one is to dare, or presume to reject it under any pretext whatever. (Council of Trent, Fourth Session).

In 1582, a powerful Counter-Reformation Jesuit cardinal named William Allen ordered the Latin Vulgate to be translated into English. Allen was intimately involved in planning the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre and the "Invincible" Spanish Armada. The translating work was done in France because it was illegal to translate the Bible into English in that country.

Cardinal Allen's 1582 translation of the Latin Vulgate into English became known as the Douay-Rheims Version.

Around 1770, Jesuit Bishop Richard Challoner revised that version and removed objectionable words like potestates and rectors.

The present day English language Douay-Rheims is mostly the work of Bishop Challoner.

The keys of "St. Peter," Joshua changed to Jesus, the mass, the Virgin Mary as Mother of God, are all found in embryonic form in the Latin Vulgate. The mistakes, omissions, and outright fabrications are legion . . . but I can only cover the highlights.

The name "Simon Peter" comes from the Latin Vulgate Version!!

The real name of the Apostle who was given the keys of the kingdom of heaven was Simeon bar Jonah (Simeon son of Jonah). Simeon was a common Jewish name like Joshua, and it means HEARING in Hebrew:
And he (Andrew) brought him to Joshua. And when Joshua beheld him he said "thou are Simeon the son of Jonah, thou shalt be called CEPHAS," which is by interpretation, a STONE (John 1:42, Scrivener translation).

Cephas is just one of 2 words for a STONE in Koine or common Greek. The real name of that Apostle was Simeon Cephas. Simeon Stone in English.

Here is that same verse from the Douay-Rheims Version:

And he brought him to Jesus. And Jesus looking upon him, said: Thou art Simon the son of Jona. Thou shalt be called Cephas, which is interpreted Peter (John 1:42, Douay-Rheims Version).

Jerome compounded the error when he translated Matthew 16:15-19 like this:

Jesus saith to them: But whom do you say that I am? Simon Peter answered and said: Thou art Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answering said to him: Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jona: because flesh and blood hath not revealed it to thee, but my Father who is in heaven. And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven (Matthew 16:15-19, Douay-Rheims Version).

Here is a proper translation of those verses:

Joshua saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simeon Cephas answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living Elohim. And Joshua answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simeon bar Jonah: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Cephas, and upon this rock I will build my congregation; and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven (Matthew 16:15-19, Scrivener translation).

Simeon bar Jonah's Confession of Faith in Christ is the ROCK upon which Christianity is built . . . not Simeon the Stone!!

Simeon bar Jonah opened the door to the kingdom of heaven for the nations when he baptized the household of an Italian soldier named Cornelius (Acts Ch. 10), and he later confronted his counterfeit and namesake named Simeon the Sorcerer.

The word "Protestant" comes from the Latin Vulgate Version!!

Saint Martin Luther and Saint William Tyndale never referred to themselves as "Protestants." Protestant was a word invented by the Vatican as a slur against the Reformed Christians who obeyed Christ's command to "come out of her, my people" (Rev. 18:4).

In the following verse, St. Paul describes the spiritual battle of the Christians against the invisible hosts of Satan:

Because for us the wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the authorities (Gr. exoucia), against the cosmic rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of evil on account of the heavenly things (Ephesians 6:12, Greek Orthodox Version).

Here is the verse from the original 1582 Douay-Rheims Version:

For our wrestling is not against flesh and bloud: but against the Princes and Potestats (Lat. potestates), against the rectors of the world of this darkness, against the spirituals of wickedness in the celestials (1582 Douay-Rheims Version).

Cardinal Allen used that verse to describe the work of the blessed Reformation. Here is the revised verse from the Challoner version:

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12, Douay-Rheims Version).

The English language King James translators slavishly followed the Douay-Rheims Version in order to give Britain an "authorized" version of the Bible.

The Latin Vulgate calls a BRIBE a GIFT!!

The Latin word for a bribe is CORRUPTELA from which the English word CORRUPT is derived....The Latin word for a gift is MUNUS from which the word municipal is derived....The Latin word for money is PECUNIAM from which the word penny is derived.

In the Book of Job, Lucifer implied that Job was serving JEHOVAH because He bribed him:

Then Satan answered JEHOVAH, and said, "does Job fear Elohim for nothing? Have you not made a hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he has on every side? you have blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land" (Job 1:9-10).

It is beyond belief but Jerome's translation called a BRIBE a GIFT:

The wicked man taketh gifts out of the bosom, that he may pervert the paths of judgment (Proverbs 17:23, Douay-Rheims Version).

Take not away my soul, O God, with the wicked: nor my life with bloody men: In whose hands are iniquities: their right hand is filled with gifts (Psalm 25:10, Douay-Rheims Version).

This "Doctor of the Church" didn't know the difference between a BRIBE and a GIFT. Over and over in the Old Covenant and the New, JEHOVAH gave good GIFTS to his people:

And I have delivered them for a gift to Aaron and his sons out of the midst of the people, to serve me for Israel in the tabernacle of the covenant, and to pray for them, lest there should be a plague among the people, if they should presume to approach unto my sanctuary (Numbers 8:19, Douay-Rheims Version).

The difference between a GIFT and a BRIBE is like the difference between heaven and hell:

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning (James 1:7).

The King James translators slavishly followed the corrupt reading of calling a BRIBE a GIFT:

A wicked man taketh a gift out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment (Proverbs 17:23, King James Version).

Amazingly, Simeon the Sorcerer offered Simeon Stone money to buy the gift of the Holy Spirit::

And when Simeon saw that through the laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Spirit was given, he offered them money, saying, “Give me this power also, that anyone on whom I lay hands may receive the Holy Spirit.” But Peter said to him, “Your money perish with you, because you thought that the gift of Elohim could be purchased with money! You have neither part nor portion in this matter, for your heart is not right in the sight of Elohim. Repent therefore of this your wickedness, and pray Elohim if perhaps the thoughts of your heart may be forgiven you. For I see that you are poisoned by bitterness and bound by iniquity” (Acts 8:18-23, Scrivener translation).

Here is that same verse from the Douay-Rheims Version:

And when Simon saw that, by the imposition of the hands of the apostles, the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, Saying: Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I shall lay my hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. But Peter said to him: Keep thy money to thyself, to perish with thee: because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Thou hast no part nor lot in this matter. For thy heart is not right in the sight of God. Do penance therefore for this thy wickedness: and pray to God, that perhaps this thought of thy heart may be forgiven thee. For I see thou art in the gall of bitterness and in the bonds of iniquity (Acts 8:18-23, Douay-Rheims Version).

There are only 2 crimes mentioned in the U.S. Constitution: TREASON and BRIBERY!!

Jerome called the Messiah a LIAR!!

Without a doubt, Jerome's perversion is the ABOMINATION of DESOLATION. In John Chapter 7, the Messiah told his brothers that he was not YET going up to Jerusalem for the feast of Tabernacles, but would go up later:
Ye go up to the feast; I am not yet going up to the feast, for my time hath not yet been fulfilled. And having said these things to them he stayed in Galilee. But when his brethren went up, then he also went up to the feast, not openly, but as in secret (John 7:8-10, Greek Orthodox Version).
Here are the same verses from the Latin Vulgate:
Go ye up to this festival day, but I go not up to this festival day: because my time is not accomplished. When he had said these things, he himself stayed in Galilee. But after his brethren were gone up, then he also went up to the feast, not openly, but, as it were, in secret. (John 7:8-10, Douay-Rheims Version).
By omitting the word YET twice, the whole tenor of the conversation is changed, and Joshua of Nazareth is made a LIAR. Most of the newer versions follow the example of the Latin Vulgate and omit the all important word YET.

Have you had your SUPERSUBSTANTIAL bread today??

The highlight of the mass is the MIRACLE of transubstantiation where the bread and wine become the literal body and blood of Christ.

The groundwork for this miracle is found in the Latin Vulgate Version.

In the Sermon on the Mount Joshua said:

Give us this day our daily bread (Matthew 6:11).

On the other hand, the Latin Vulgate tells us to pray for our supersubstantial bread:

Give us this day our supersubstantial (Lat. supersubstantialem) bread. (Douay-Rheims Version).

This false word laid the foundation for the "miracle" of the mass which appeared centuries later.

The word cross comes from the corrupt Latin Vulgate!!

The word CROSS from the Latin CRUX is not mentioned ONCE in the Holy Bible (except in the New International Version). There are 2 words in Greek used to describe wood or a tree:

Xylon
Greek for TREE
Stauros
Greek for WOOD

Saint John was an eyewitness to all the events that took place at the death of the Messiah:

And he bearing his WOOD (Gk. stauros) went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha. (John 19:17).

What SHAPE the wood was it doesn't say but it was probably a flat board. The Romans never wasted time digging holes but nailed the condemned to a wooden board and then that was nailed to a tree.

Saint Peter was another eyewitness to these momentous events in Jerusalem:

And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree (Gk. xylon). (Acts 10:39).

Jerome introduced the word CRUX into the Latin Vulgate Version:

For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not in wisdom of speech, lest the CROSS (Lat. CRUX) of Christ should be made void. (I Corinthians 1:17, Douay-Rheims Version).

You can be sure that the old Latin Vulgate that preceded Jerome never used the word CROSS to describe the Greek word STAUROS.

IN HOC SIGNO VINCES or IN THIS SIGN CONQUER.
IN HOC SIGNO VINCES or IN THIS SIGN CONQUER.
 

Before Emperor Constantine, Jerome would never have used the word cross (crux) because it was unknown to the early Christians . . . except as a pagan Mithraic sun worship symbol.

Crosses have been found in every country and were a common symbol in the New World before its discovery by John Cabot.

 
The cross is the one indispensable MARK of the Papal Roman beast.
The cross is the one indispensable MARK of the Papal Roman Empire.

The cross is the one indispensable symbol of the Latin Church and its association with Christianity is another proof of the Great Apostasy predicted by Saint Paul.

Have you NOURISHED your hair today??

St. Paul said that it is a SHAME for a man to have long hair:

Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? (I Corinthians 11:14).

In the Bible, demons are always depicted as males with LONG HAIR:

And the shapes of the locusts (demons) were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions (Revelation 9:7-8).

The style of hair at the time of Saint Paul was SHORT for men as can be seen on all the statues or coins of the Caesars.

Bust of Tiberius Caesar.

Most men wore their hair short in the ancient world.

Jupiter/Zeus had long hair and many times his pagan priests grew their hair long as a sign of devotion to their false god.

The only exception to this rule was Samson who was commanded by JEHOVAH not to cut his hair.

 
Bust of Zeus.
Bust of Zeus.

When Jerome changed the name of the Messiah from Joshua to Jesus, the Vatican "Jesus" began to look a lot like Zeus with long hair.

The Latin Vulgate says that if a man NOURISH his hair, it is a shame unto him?

Doth not even nature itself teach you that a man indeed, if he nourish his hair (Lat. nutriat), it is a shame unto him? (Douay-Rheims Version).

Does this prohibit shampoos for men? On the other hand, women are encouraged to nourish their hair:

But if a woman nourish (Lat. nutriat) her hair, it is a glory to her; for her hair is given to her for a covering (Douay-Rheims Version).
This is GOOD NEWS for cosmetics' manufacturers. Until very recently, Christian women covered their heads when they prayed.

Sodomites were expelled from the Latin Vulgate Version!!

According to the Bible, JEHOVAH created Adam and Eve . . . not Adam and Steve. In the Old Covenant, homosexuality was called SODOMY after the perverted city of Sodom that was destroyed by fire:

Then JEHOVAH rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from JEHOVAH out of heaven (Genesis 19:24).

The Holy Bible has a lot to say about sodomy or homosexuality and Jesus said that the world would be just like Sodom and Gomorrah before His Second Coming:

But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed (Luke 17: 29-30).

JEHOVAH told Israel:

There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel. (Deuteronomy 23:17).

There shall be no whore among the daughters of Israel, nor whoremonger among the sons of Israel. (Deuteronomy 23:17, Douay-Rheims Version).

Sodomite is changed to EFFEMINATE in the Latin Vulgate:

And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which JEHOVAH cast out before the children of Israel (I Kings 14:24).
There were also the effeminate in the land, and they did according to all the abominations of the people, whom the Lord had destroyed before the face of the children of Israel (Douay-Rheims Version).

And he (Jehoshaphat) took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made. (I Kings 15:12).

And he took away the effeminate out of the land, and removed all the filth of the idols, which his fathers had made. (Douay-Rheims Version).

These changes are also found in I Kings 22:46 and 2 Kings 23:7.

The ROCK was expelled from the Latin Vulgate Version!!

When Joshua first met Peter, he called him Cephas which is interpreted as A STONE:

And he (Andrew) brought him to Joshua. And when Joshua beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jonah: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone (St. John 1:42).

Here is how the Latin Vulgate explains this verse:

And he brought him to Jesus. And Jesus looking upon him, said: Thou art Simon the son of Jona. Thou shalt be called Cephas, which is interpreted Peter (Douay-Rheims Version).

That really explains what Cephas means.

In the Old Covenant, JEHOVAH is called a ROCK at least 15 times. Most of them are MISSING in the Latin Vulgate:

He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: an Elohim of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he (Deuteronomy 32:4).

The works of God are perfect, and all his ways are judgments: God is faithful and without any iniquity, he is just and right. (Douay-Rheims Version).

Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten Elohim that formed thee (Deuteronomy 32:18).

Thou hast forsaken the God that begot thee, and hast forgotten the Lord that created thee (Douay-Rheims Version).

For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges (Deuteronomy 32:31).

For our God is not as their gods: our enemies themselves are judges (Douay-Rheims Version).

For who is Elohim save JEHOVAH? or who is a rock save Elohim? (Psalm 18:31).

For who is God but JEHOVAH? or who is God but our God? (Douay-Rheims Version).

The conclusion of the matter is this: Peter is A STONE and Christ is the ROCK;

Ye also, as living stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to Elohim by Joshua the Christ (I St. Peter 2:5).

The Bible is the only weapon that a Christian has to defend against the attacks of Satan.

The Latin Vulgate lauds Virgin Mary worship

Since the beginning of time, Satan has exalted mother goddess worship over the worship of JEHOVAH. The humble virgin who gave birth to the Messiah had the common Jewish name of Miriam . . . not Maria or Mary!!

Egyptian goddess Isis breast feeding Horus.

Before the coming of the Messiah, every country except Israel was involved in perverted mother goddess worship.

The goddess was called Isis in Egypt, Aphrodite in Greece, Venus in Rome, Kali in India, Shing Moo in China, Kannon in Japan, Coatlicue in Mexico etc., etc.

 
Diana of the Ephesians.
Diana of the Ephesians.

The preaching of the Gospel of the Risen Christ was dealing a death blow to the mother goddess:

So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought; but also that the temple of the great goddess Diana should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worshippeth(Acts 19:27).

This was a fulfillment of the great prophecy of Genesis chapter 3 where JEHOVAH promised that the seed of the woman would crush the serpent's head:

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; he shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel (Genesis 3:15).

The Latin Vulgate Version changed the word HE to SHE:

I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel (Genesis 3:15, Douay-Rheims Version).

When Miriam was visited by the angel Gabriel to announce the virgin birth of the Messiah, Gabriel said that she was highly favored of the Lord:

And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women (Luke 1:28).

The Latin Vulgate says that Miriam was full of grace:

And the angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women (Latin Vulgate Version).

This gave rise to the false teaching of Mariolatry. Here is the Latin Rosary or prayer to Mary:

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee;
blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

This is nothing but the old pagan mother goddess worship under a "Christian" mantle.

And so we see that all the corrupt practices and doctrines of the Latin Church have their origin in the Latin Vulgate of Jerome.

Father Abraham got JUSTICE from Jerome!!

One of the greatest doctrines of the Holy Bible is justification by FAITH....St. Paul–founder of the Roman Congregation–said:

For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed Elohim, and it was counted unto him for righteousness (Romans 4:3).

Even as Abraham believed Elohim, and it was accounted to him for righteousness (Galatians 3:6).

St. Paul quotes from a verse about Abraham prove this doctrine:

And he (Abraham) believed in JEHOVAH and he counted it to him for righteousness (Genesis 15:6).

Now let's see how Jerome replaces RIGHTEOUSNESS with JUSTICE:

Abram believed God, and it was reputed to him unto justice(Douay-Rheims Version).

For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God: and it was reputed to him unto justice (Douay-Rheims Version).

As it is written: Abraham believed God: and it was reputed to him unto justice (Douay-Rheims Version).

The Council of Trent condems this belief in justification by Faith ALONE:

But, although it is necessary to believe that sins neither are remitted, nor ever were remitted save gratuitously by the mercy of God for Christ's sake; yet is it not to be said, that sins are forgiven, or have been forgiven, to any one who boasts of his confidence and certainty of the remission of his sins, and rests on that alone; seeing that it may exist, yea does in our day exist, amongst heretics and schismatics; and with great vehemence is this vain confidence, and one alien from all godliness, preached up in opposition to the Catholic Church. But neither is this to be asserted,—that they who are truly justified must needs, without any doubting whatever, settle within themselves that they are justified, and that no one is absolved from sins and justified, but he that believes for certain that he is absolved and justified; and that absolution and justification are effected by this faith alone: as though whoso has not this belief, doubts of the promises of God, and of the efficacy of the death and resurrection of Christ. For even as no pious person ought to doubt of the mercy of God, of the merit of Christ, and of the virtue and efficacy of the sacraments, even so each one, when he regards himself, and his own weakness and indisposition, may have fear and apprehension touching his own grace; seeing that no one can know with a certainty of faith, which cannot be subject to error, that he has obtained the grace of God. (Council of Trent, Sixth Session).

Another fatal error of Jerome was to change the warning about the Mark of the Beast.

Mark of the Beast is expelled from the Latin Vulgate Version!!

The Book of Revelation is a history of the Christian Congregation from the First to the Second Coming of Christ told in symbols or picture language.

The book exposes the career of Antichrist and his war against the saints. St. John said:

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is 666 (Revelation 13:16-18).

The Bible issues a dire warning to anyone who takes the Mark of the Beast or becomes the Pope's follower:

And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of Elohim, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name (Revelation 14:9-11).

Jerome's Latin Vulgate changes the word MARK into CHARACTER (Lat. caracter). Character is a transliteration of the Greek word CHARAGMA meaning a stamp or an imprinted mark:

And he shall make all, both little and great, rich and poor, freemen and bondmen, to have a character in their right hand or on their foreheads:
And that no man might buy or sell, but he that hath the character, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Douay-Rheims Version)).

And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice: If any man shall adore the beast and his image and receive his character in his forehead or in his hand,
He also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mingled with pure wine in the cup of his wrath: and shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the sight of the holy angels and in the sight of the Lamb.
And the smoke of their torments, shall ascend up for ever and ever: neither have they rest day nor night, who have adored the beast and his image and whoever receiveth the character of his name (Douay-Rheims Version).

Every other translation uses the correct word MARK to translate charagma. The Romans did have a word for MARK which Jerome used in Ezekiel 9:4:

And the Lord said to him: Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem: and mark Thau upon the foreheads of the men that sigh, and mourn for all the abominations that are committed in the midst thereof (Ezekiel 9:4, Douay-Rheims Version).

Jerome was a CHARACTER indeed whose translation filled the Holy Bible with HOLES.

Jerome said that JOSHUA went to HELL!!

It is beyond belief but Jerome said that JOSHUA the sinless Son of God went to HELL....This mistranslation is the foundation of the Vatican's falsely so-called "Apostles' Creed."

This is just more proof what a lousy translators JEROME was and his complete lack of Biblical knowledge. Here is his translation of St. Peter's sermon on the Day of Pentecost:

Foreseeing this, he (King David) spoke of the resurrection of Christ. For neither was he left in hell (Latin: inferno): neither did his flesh see corruption. (Acts 2:31) (Douay-Rheims Version).

King David was quoting from the Old Covenant Psalm 16:10 (Psalm 15:10 in the Vulgate) because Psalm 9 & 10 are considered ONE Psalm in the Vulgate:

Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell (Latin: inferno); nor wilt thou give thy holy one to see corruption (Douay-Rheims Version).

Here is the same verse in English translated from the Greek Textus Receptus or Byzantine Text:

He, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that His soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption (Acts 2:31).

In the New Covenant, the Greek word HADES is used to describe 2 destination for the dead before the Resurrection of Christ. These 2 destinations were:

1. Paradise or Abraham's Bosom.
2. Torments.

The righteous dead, along with little children, went to Paradise or Abraham's Bosom . . . and the wicked went to Torments.

HELL in the New Covenant is always associated with FIRE and when people say "go to HELL" they always mean a very, very nasty unpleasant place:

And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell (Greek: gehenna) (Matthew 10:28).

The closest equivalent of the Greek gehenna is the Hebrew topheth:

For Tophet is ordained of old; yea, for the king (Satan) it is prepared; he hath made it deep and large: the pile thereof is fire and much wood; the breath of JEHOVAH, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it. (Isaiah 30:33).

When Joshua died on the tree, He went to Paradise or Abraham's Bosom . . . not to hell:

And Joshua said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in PARADISE (Luke 23:43).

Even Jerome could not corrupt that verse:

And Jesus said to him: Amen I say to thee: This day thou shalt be with me in paradise (Latin: paradiso) (Luke 23:43). (Douay-Rheims Version).

After the Resurrection, ALL believers in Christ go straight to HEAVEN along with children who are too young to sin:

Holocaust comes from the Latin Vulgate Version!!

The word HOLOCAUST comes from the Latin Vulgate and appears 359 times. In the English Bible, the word is translated BURNT OFFERING or sacrifice by fire:

And Noah built an altar untoJEHOVAH: and taking of all cattle and fowls that were clean, offered holocausts (Lat. holocausta) upon the altar. (Genesis 8:20, Douay-Rheims Version).

Here is the famous story of JEHOVAH commanding Abraham to offer up his son Isaac (a type of Christ) as a burnt offering:

Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw behind his back a ram, amongst the briers, sticking fast by the horns, which he took and offered for a holocaust (Lat. holocaustum) instead of his son. (Genesis 22:13, Douay-Rheims Version).

The Khazars in the Mideast are always crying about an imaginary "Holocaust." This 6 million hoax serves to win them sympathy throughout the world.

According to the World Almanac and Book of Facts, there were about 15,000,000 "Jews" in the world in 1934. According to the same source, there were just about the same number in 1946.

This 6 million perishing in this mythic "Holocaust" with no diminution of numbers is as great a miracle as Moses opening up the Red Sea or Joshua causing the sun and moon to stand still.
