As a double orphan that lost both father and mother at the ages of 10 & 13, respectively, the Founder/President/Coordinator-General of Cross of Calvary Foundation – CCFN Inc., Paul Omo Umane, by the Special Grace of God, is married with four very lovely children and they are all university graduates. Arising from his background, Paul Umane floats the Foundation to Cater for Orphans, vulnerable children and widows; the principal aim being to let them know if he could make it in life that they too can make it. Most importantly, the Foundation is neck-deep into Non-Violent Activism to execute her Divine Mandate to Rescue her Fellow-Humanity from the precipice of Disaster. Accordingly, pasted below are some of her posts geared towards that direction christened, THE CHRIST IS THE LORD OF LORDS; DIRECT APPEAL TO POPE FRANCIS; HUMANITY AND THE MORAL LAWS, which are accessible @ https://web.facebook.com/paulumanecommunity/ or http-s://paulumane.wordpress.com/
This treatise is part of the Campaign of the Foundation to enthrone the Undiluted Tenet of the New Covenant of Grace in the Christendom, which had hitherto been overshadowed by “The Awful Horror (Matt. 24: 15-28)” that she considers the panacea to PEACE and HARMONY in the Mideast; the Gateway to Peace and Harmony in the entire universe. Therefore, she passionately appeal to everyone to carefully study the data enshrined in Chapters 2 & 3 in one of her products christened, The GODHEAD & Humanity (Total Freedom from Spiritual Enslavement) Vol. 1 available @ http://www.com/dp/1530056373 or http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BNPMGXE Another of the products, The GODHEAD & Humanity (Total Freedom from Spiritual Enslavement) Vol. 3, Chapters 4; 5; 6 & 7 accessible @ http://www.amazon.com/dp/1523964251 or http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BNPMGXE avows,
CHAPTER 4: THE RESEARCH PROJECT HYPOTHESIS ONE (A): In hypothesis one (A), we posit the Jewish Scribe employed by the then Great Roman Empire (800 AD) to compile the old scrolls and the inspired writings of the notable true, as against false Apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ purposely expunged the Deuterocanonical Books/Apocrypha, which were formerly embedded in the Vulgate (200 AD) and Septuagint Version (300 AD) from the present document called the Holy Bible. Therefore, below are the recommendations on the basis of our findings,
The Role of the Emperor Augustus: Now, giving a very solid background story to the idolatrous nature of the Roman Emperors that controls the Papacy, especially the Emperor Augustus, the Lion Concise Bible Encyclopedia posits that at the early Christian development Emperor Augustus (27 BC – AD 14) tried to revive Roman religion in a more splendid form. That his chosen title, ‘Augustus,’ had a sense of religious awe and that he wanted to use religion to bind people in loyalty to his government. It further writes in the East that the Emperor was worshipped as a god in his lifetime because he had brought peace and good governance to a world torn by war.
Chronological Arrangement of the Report: In the Research Project Report volumes 1 – 4 and as much as it is humanly possible, we have chronologically arranged the various events beginning from the creation of the universe to the present day Messianic World to the Final Day of Judgment. By so doing, we have succeeded in bringing out the true stories in their true color for the admonition, exhortation and even warning for the entire humanity. That is, to steer the peoples of the entire world off the precipice of disaster in the Lake of Fire. We mean, the precipice of disaster, which the admixture of Judaic practices into the tenet of the New Covenant of Grace the Apostle James introduces into the Christendom occasioned. That is the policy that is responsible for what the Lord Jesus Christ christens: “The Awful Horror” that the Apostle Paul also calls the “Other Gospel,” which the Emperor-in-Council in a Canon in the year 800 AD capitalized to introduce the Roman paganism religion into the Christianity that eventually leads to the legalization of the list of the Muratorian Fragment or the Holy Bible.
The Good News Bible and the Expunged Books: To remove all forms of ambiguity that the expunged Books are not only available on the Internet but the Good News Bible, printed by The Bible Society of Nigeria now includes them in its compilation. Specifically, the introduction to the Deuterocanonical Books/Apocrypha simply records, “The following books: Tobit, Esther (the Greek text), Wisdom of Solomon, Sirach, Baruch, Letter of Jeremiah, Song of the Three Young men, Susanna, Bell and the Dragon, 1Maccabees, and 2Maccabees formed part of the Septuagint Greek text and were interspersed among other books of the Old Testament. The Greek text was not only widely used by Jews but was known as well by numerous ‘God-fearing’ Gentiles who were attracted to the high moral teachings of the Old Testament, even though they had not themselves become converts to Judaism. One can thus understand how and why early Christians, as it spread among Greek-speaking Jews and Gentiles, employed this Greek text. In fact, the majority of Old Testament quotations in the New Testament are based on this tradition.
Precisely when Jewish leadership officially adopted the traditional 39 books of the so-called ‘Hebrew Canon’ is not known; nor is there agreement as to exactly what criteria were used in determining the Canon. According to tradition, the determination of the books of the Hebrew Canon was made about AD 90, but there is evidence to believe that official and widespread agreement on this issue came somewhat later (precisely in 200 AD). Among the Christians, it was apparently in the fourth century that the issue of the canonicity (or recognition) of these books arose, a situation which is reflected in Jerome’s denying their canonicity and Augustine’s affirming it. (It is extremely interesting to note at that early stage in Christian Development that Saint Augustine had the uncommon courage to hold a divergent view from that of Saint Jerome, the chief proponent of 400 AD Vulgate Version of the Old Testament and Martin Luther King (Jr). In 1546 AD at the Council of Trent the Roman Catholic Church officially declared these books to be sacred and canonical and to be accepted ‘with equal devotion and reverence.’
The Canonicity of the Holy Bible: We found it most regrettable that an idolatrous Emperor-in-Council whose conversion from paganism to Christianity is suspect is the one that sets out a list of writings/books that are inspired; inspired by whom: he or the Holy Spirit? Writing on the canonicity of the Holy Bible, one of our working data, the WATCHTOWER of February 15, 2006, reads, “’EVERY line seems to have been written specifically to arouse the curiosity of those who have interest in primitive Christian history.’ That is how an ancient document was described. Can you imagine which document? It is one you may or may not have heard of – the Muratorian Fragment. In either case, you might wonder, ‘What makes the Muratorian Fragment so special?’ It is the oldest existing canon, or authoritative list of books of the Christian Greek Scriptures. You might take it for granted that certain books belong in the Bible. Yet, would it surprise you to know that there was a time when some doubted which individual books should be included? The Muratorian Fragment, or Canon, set out a list of writings to be inspired. As you can understand, the exact content of the bible is of immense importance. So, what did that document reveal regarding the books that now make-up the Christian Scriptures? Well, we shall consider first a bit of background about the document.” As to Canon List discovery, when it was written, information the Muratorian Fragment contains etc kindly resort to the volume 1 Report.
The Official Vulgate Version and the Puritans: For the interest of all, we hereby present the so-called “Official Vulgate Version” of the Old Testament (400 AD), which the Puritans accused Professor Montano of dovetailing as we shall see later instead of the original Vulgate version of 200 AD. The Chambers 20th Century Dictionary defines the so-called official version as follows, “An ancient Latin version of the Scriptures, made by St. Jerome and others in the 4th century, and later twice revised – so called from its common use in the Roman Catholic Church etc.” Also, defining the word “Apocrypha,” the Dictionary illuminatingly provides an additional information as follows, “Apocrypha: hidden or secret things applied especially to certain books or part of books included in the Septuagint (300 AD) and Vulgate (200 AD) translations of the Old Testament but not accepted as canonical by Jews or Protestants and to later books. (Apocrypha of the New Testament) never accepted as canonical or authoritative by any considerable part of the Christian Church.” Additionally, we have, “The Greek Old Testament, traditionally attributed to 72 translators at Alexandria in the 3rd century B.C – usually expressed by LXX. It was only in the fourth century during the Vulgate Version translated by St. Jerome that the issue of canonicity/recognition arose.
The Martin Luther King and the Reformation: As stated below, our working data acknowledges, “The Muratorian Fragment thus confirms most of the books now found in the Christian Greek Scriptures were already considered canonical in the second century CE.” We regret though, during the time of the Reformation that Martin Luther King knowingly or unknowingly played into the hands of both Saint Jerome and the Papacy. The WATCHTOWER adds at the time of the Reformation that Martin Luther King did not regard the books as Scripture; instead, he upholds the position of Saint Jerome by accepting them as mere ‘useful and good for reading.’ And that is why he placed them at the end of the Old Testament with the superscription ‘Apocrypha’. So deducing from that reasoning, he stated the Protestants generally continued the practice in their translations of the Bible into such languages as Swedish, Norwegian, French, Spanish and English. That the Muratorian Fragment thus confirms most of the books now found in the Christian Greek Scriptures were already considered canonical in the second century CE. Of course, the canonicity of the Bible books – that is, their right to be included in the divine library – does not depend on their being mentioned in a certain ancient list. What gives evidence that the Bible’s books are the product of the Holy Spirit are their contents. They all support the authorship of Jehovah God and are in complete harmony. The harmony and balance of the 66 books of the Holy Bible for what they truthfully are, Jehovah’s Word of inspired truth, preserved until our day (1Thessalonians12; 13; 2 Timothy 3: 16-17.
Finally, it states Scholars date the final writing of Hermas’ Shepherd between 140 and 155 CE and further asserts one can then see why the Greek language original of the Latin Muratorian Fragment, known as the Vulgate Version (200 AD) is dated between 170 and 200 CE.)” The Muratorian Fragment and the Development of the Canon.
CHAPTER 5: THE RESEARCH PROJECT HYPOTHESIS ONE (B): In this track, we present the recommendations relating to the (B) part of hypothesis one that stipulates the Jewish scribe that compiled the present document, the Holy Bible, purposely muddled up some parts in the Muratorian Fragment or Canon List (AD 800}, which is an offshoot of the Saint Jerome Vulgate Version (400 AD). They are as stated below,
The Old Testament and the Missing Link: Whether it is the Old Testament or New Testament Bibles, evidences abound, which points to the fact that they are not chronologically arranged and they are characterized by some very grievous omissions. Accordingly, part of our working data as you shall read the full details in subsection (iii) posit, “In general, Ptolemy’s canon is regarded as accurate. But in view of its omissions, should it really be used to provide a definite historical chronology?” Our very simple answer to the question is outstandingly in the negative.
The New Testament and the Missing Link: Like the missing link we have so far highlighted concerning the Old Testament Bible, the case of the New Testament Bible is not different. Once again, we categorically posit that evidences abound, which points to the fact that some events in the New Testament Bible are not chronologically arranged and there is even an attempt to mislead the reader. Therefore, as you will recall, elsewhere one of our working data posits, “The text is not merely a list of the books of the Christian Greek Scriptures. It also comments on the books and their respective writers. If you read the text, you would see that the first lines of the manuscript are missing and it also seems to end abruptly. It starts by mentioning the Gospel of Luke, and the document states that the writer of this Bible book was a physician (Colossians4: 34.) It states that Luke’s is the third Gospel, so you can see that the missing initial part likely made reference to the Gospel of Matthew and Mark. If that is your conclusion, you would find support in the Muratorian Fragment, which says that the fourth Gospel is that of John. The Fragment confirms that the book of Acts of Apostles was written by Luke, for the ‘Most excellent Theophilus’ (Luke1: 3; Acts1; 1.) Then goes on to list the letters of the apostle Paul, to the Corinthians (two), to the Ephesians, to the Philippians, to the Colossians, to the Galatians, to the Thessalonians (two), to the Romans, to Philemon, to Titus and to Timothy (two). The letters of John are … Apocalypse or Revelation concludes the list of the books considered inspired.
The Rome’s Attempt to Paint Peter Black: In a clandestine attempt to paint Saint Peter black in order to further mislead the gullible members of the public in general and the Christians in particular, the Jewish Scribe employed by the Roman Authority to compile the Muratorian Fragment or Canon List (800 AD) although mentions the Apocalypse of the Apostle Peter but warns it should not be read “because counterfeit writings were already circulating in his days.” Fellow-humanity, just imagine the writings of the Great Apostle Peter the Rock to whom the Lord Jesus Christ states upon his divine confession that he is the Son of God he would build his Church, being demonized! No wonder our working Encyclopedia records it was only in 590 AD that the First Medieval Pope Gregory1 (590-604) was installed by the Emperor in Rome. Well, as the WATCHTOWER puts it, “It is significant that the Fragment mentions an Apocalypse of Peter but states that some felt it should not be read by Christians. The writer warns that counterfeit writings were already circulating in his days. The Muratorian Fragment explains that they should not be accepted, ‘for it is not fitting that gall being mixed with honey.’ The document also mentioned other texts that were not to be included among the holy writings. That was either because they were written after the apostolic period, as was the Shepherd of Hermas or because they were written to support heresies.
The Great Dr. Geoffrey Mark Hahnemann’s Contribution: Thank God for the hearts of great men and women with pious and noble hearts who at the risk of the lives at those perilous times in the Dark Ages of human history could still stand out to be counted as very reliable and trustworthy in their endeavors. Continuing, we have, “You may have observed from the foregoing that the letter to the Hebrews, Peter’s two letters, and that of James are not mentioned in this catalog of authentic Bible books. However, noting the workmanship of the Scribe who copied the manuscript, Dr. Geoffrey Mark Hahnemann observed that it is ‘reasonable to suggest that the Fragment may have contained other references now lost, and that James and Hebrews (and 1Peter) may have been among them.’ …” The Muratorian Fragment and the Development of the Canon.
Now, from these weighty evidences, it is crystal clear that the Jewish scribe that compiled the present document, the Holy Bible, purposely muddled up some parts in the Muratorian Fragment or Canon List (AD 800}, which is an offshoot of the Saint Jerome Vulgate.
CHAPTER 6: THE RESEARCH PROJECT HYPOTHESIS TWO: Like the last two tracks, this track presents the recommendations on the hypothesis two, which posits the puritans are right that accused Professor Arius Montano that edited the Antwerp Polyglot Bible (1516 – 72) of heresy. … Having thus provides the background information regarding what the heresy charge the Puritans levied against Professor Montano is about and the definitions of the various Polyglot Bibles available in the open market, we further endeavored to whet your appetite. As the story of The WATCHTOER goes, “The ship left Spain en route to the Italian Peninsula in the early 16th century. Stored in its hold was a cargo of immense value – the bulk of the total production of the Complutentian Polyglot Bible printed between 1514 and 1517. Suddenly, a violent storm came up. The crew fought to save the ship, but their efforts futile. The ship sank with its priceless cargo. That disaster led to the demand for a new edition of the Polyglot Bible … Beloved, the bone of contention is in these few sentences, “Not surprisingly, enemies of faithful Bible translations soon appeared on the scene. Although the Antwerp Polyglot had Papal approval and Montano had a well-deserved reputation as an honorable scholar, he was denounced to the Inquisition. Opposers said his work portrayed the new revised Latin text of Santes Pagninus as a more of the translation of the Hebrew and Greek originals. They also accused Montano of consulting the original languages in his desire to produce an accurate translation of the Bible – a procedure they viewed as heretical.” Therefore, it is most tragic that a very nice works that was supposed to be a plus for Professor Montano turned out to be soared and in heresy accusation because right from the very beginning, it was procedurally defective. ….” For a full comprehension, kindly read, The GODHEAD & Humanity (Total Freedom from Spiritual Enslavement) Vol. 1 & 3 that can download with the above provided links.
HOW TO REVOLUTIONIZE THE CHRISTENDOM
Like we stated elsewhere, the way forward Cross of Calvary Foundation – CCFN Inc strongly recommends is embedded in the Good News Bible enshrined in the Introduction to Paul’s Letter to the Galatians that simply reads, “As the good news (tenet of the New Covenant of Grace as against the Old Covenant of Promise) about Jesus began to be preached and welcomed among people who were not Jews, the question arose as to whether a person must obey the Law of Moses (as demanded by James) in order to be a true Christian. Paul had argued that this was not necessary – that in fact, the only sound basis for life in Christ was faith, by which all are put right with God. But among the churches of Galatia, a Roman province in Asia Minor, there had come people (sponsored by the Apostle James) who opposed Paul and claimed that one must also observe the Law of Moses in order to be right with God. Paul’s Letter to the Galatians was written in order to bring back to true faith (as against adulterated version of the New Covenant of Grace being preached in Jerusalem) and practice those people who were being misled by this false teaching. …” Again, the Great man of God, the Apostle Paul, substantiates his claim with what the Good News Bible christens, Preserve Your Freedom, as follows: “Freedom is what we have – Christ has set us free! Stand, then, as free people, and do not allow yourselves to become slaves (to the Abrahamic Old Covenant of Promise and the Law of Moses) again. Listen! I, Paul, tell you that if you allow yourselves to be circumcised, it means that Christ is of no use to you at all! Once more I warn any man who allows himself to be circumcised that he is obliged to obey the whole Law. Those of you who try to be put right with God by obeying the Law have cut yourselves off from Christ. You are outside God’s grace (i.e., New Covenant of Grace.) Galatians 5: 1-4. That is the greatest dilemma confronting both the Judaic Practitioners and Judaic-Christians the world over. For those practicing Judaism Religion, please note that the esteemed Sephardi Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef as reported by The Times of Israel told the whole world that the “moral laws” are “theoretical” and to that extend have no binding force on the adherers. But you will recall, the Apostle James earlier asserts even if one does not commit adultery that such a one has become a law-breaker if he or she commits murder. That is because if one keeps ninety-nine and half percent and breaks a half percent of the Law, such a one has become a law-breaker!
Also, for the Judaic-Christians in the Christendom, i.e., those mixing Judaism practices with Christianity, the Great Apostle Paul says that if they allow themselves to be circumcised, it means Christ is of no use to them at all. That those who try to be saved by obeying the Law have cut themselves off the Christ and they are outside God’s grace, the tenet of the New Covenant of Grace. Therefore, what is the fate of such a one who is cut off from the Christ and who is outside the tenet of the New Covenant of Grace enunciated by the Messiah, Jesus the Christ? Well, may the Almighty God have mercy on them all; however, we strongly advocate that repentance should begin now: for it is not yet too late!
In conclusion, Cross of Calvary Foundation – CCFN Inc wishes to state no matter the pedigree of a believer in the Christendom that if our Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah and or Son of God were to suddenly appear to meet the same scenario that made him to weep and heap woe upon woes on the Scribes and Pharisees the teachers of the Law who tenaciously hold tight to the tenet of the Abrahamic Covenant also known as the Old Covenant of Promise and the Law of Moses and its attendant Ordinances, which he had already fulfilled that he would weep and condemn them, too! So, let us all, we mean, the entire humanity be warned because a word is enough for the wise. Thank you and God bless.
