ABSOLUTION What an unsaved religious con artist gives to his victim, giving false hope in exchange for money.

ADORATION A way of referencing the abominable Catholic “WORSHIP” of idols, objects, and persons, forbidden by the word of God, (by use of a word that sounds somewhat less objectionable to naive Protestants), as used in: “adoration of the cross,” “adoration of the Magi,” “adoration of Mary,” “perpetual adoration,” etc.

AID TO WORSHIP An innocent sounding label for a pagan concept, comprising various and sundry objects, such as “graven images,” candles, and assorted superstitious paraphernalia that God hates. (An equivalent biblical term is: “an abomination”.) Continue reading Non-Existent Terminology

My Brother’s Keeper
