“This is my beloved Son in whom I have well decided. 
And this voice from heaven we heard, when we were 
with Him in the holy mountain.”

Note: The existing New Testaments improperly 
translate the Greek words, “ego evdokisa” 
as “in whom I am well pleased.” 
The correct translation of the original 
“ego evdokisa”  is correctly  “ ”I have well decided.”

     Peter heard the voice of the Father when he was with the Lord at His Transfiguration on the holy mountain. The Apostle preached his testimony, that Christ is His Father’s only beloved Son, the Godman, which he preached wherever he went, until the wicked pagans crucified him because of his testimony. Thus Peter sealed his perfect testimony by shedding his blood upon the cross. Peter testified that the Lord was transfigured on Mt. Tabor, and that the Father spoke saying: “This is my beloved Son in whom I   have well decided.” He did not speak of what they saw but of what they heard from the Father in heaven. What he and the other apostles heard is just as important as what they saw and they all bore witness to the voice of the Father from heaven. 

     The testimony of the Father who has well decided to send His beloved Son into the world to become a living sacrifice which delivers believers from sins and death and is affirmed by the voice of God the Father. The Transfiguration verified that the Lord is truly the promised Christ by the presence of Moses and Elias, the two faithful witnesses who came from the world beyond death. The Apostles spread their testimony everywhere in order to strengthen their faith that Christ is both Son of God and the Son of man.

     The apostles knew that there is really life after death when they saw Moses and Elias standing before them and conversing with Christ. This testimony is from the Apostles who bore witness before all men; most of them were tortured and put to death and sealed their testimony by their blood. This testimony of the Father being acknowledged by believers is extremely powerful causing many` to suffer torture and death for the sake of propagating the truth out of love for Christ!

     Orthodoxy keeps and preserves the holy and divine testimonies, which are then continually passed on to the faithful everywhere. There is no question of the power that is in the truths which we believe and we  can never be put to shame for the truth which  comes from God who is the eternal Truth.  

   “This is my beloved Son in whom I have well decided.”  But foolish and faithless men war against the divine truths, and they reject the testimony of God the Father, and  In so doing they fail to  see the beauty, the glory, the majesty and love of the true God, but instead they choose to worship creation and despise the Creator. Living only for the pleasures and things of this world, they will end up dying in their sins and upon leaving this temporary life, they will die and then believe but it will be too late for there is no repentance after death but only judgment.

     The father of lies proclaims that Christ is not God’s beloved Son and strikes out with the denial that there is a God and they denounce all truth as being a lie. Foolish men, in their hearts they know that God is the truth but they continue to follow a lie, for their hearts are attracted to anything other than truth. But those who listen to God easily see that He is good and that He loves us and tolerates us, giving us time to change. But we, believing truth, we also believe that the apostles spoke the truth. We believe that they saw Moses and Elias talking to Christ, so we also believe and see them talking to Christ through their words. Upon seeing Moses and Elias alive we firmly believe and know that there is certainly life after death. We know that God the Father calls Jesus the Son of God, and we certainly believe our Father who is in heaven.                                                                    

     “This is my beloved Son in whom I have well decided!”   The Father testifies that Jesus Christ is His beloved Son. Whoever does not believe in this truth believes the same as Judas, Caiaphas, Nero and Herod, the Scribes and Pharisees, the persecutors of the apostles and all betrayers of the truth.  We must believe one or the other, Jesus is the Son of God, God’s beloved Son or He is a liar and unworthy of   our trust. There are serious consequences for failing to embrace and follow the truth. It is our sacred duty to gently spread knowledge of the truth everywhere and of the dread judgment that is to come.

“I have authority* to lay it (my soul) down, 
and I have the authority to take it up again”
                                                                               (John 10:18) \
(*Usually mistranslated as “power.” Herein can be seen that correct translation of a single word “authority” is important)

     Jesus here reminds His disciples and others that He has authority in heaven and on earth and that He will voluntarily submit himself to the wicked men as He undergoes torture and death. This will come on Him by the arrogant high priests, scribes and Pharisees and many other Jews acting  under the evil one’s authority.  They did not know that Christ willed everything that would happen to Him and He often prophesied His torturous death  on the Cross. He also knew that He could avoid this and not even become incarnate. Jesus verified this when He told Peter  when he drew a sword and cut off the high priest’s servants ear: “Do you not think that I cannot now pray to my Father and He will presently give me more than 12 legions of angels?”

     Ordinary men cannot claim as did Christ: “I have the authority to lay down my life and take it up again,” for man lacks such authority. Christ alone being the all powerful Logos of the triune God and alone has divine authority and power is enabled to do whatever He decides. But it was His will to submit when they sought to destroy Him. Christ prevented attempts to avoid His crucifixion for this was His earnest desire, and He knew the objective he was seeking. Some of His followers even desired that He should be crowned as king, unaware that he was not only a man but also the all-powerful Logos of God, the King and Lord of all having authority over all that exists.

     If a man is about to be killed by others he is aware that he does not have authority over his own life, and cannot, like Christ say to his killers: “I have the authority to lay my life down.” Only Christ has such authority and is able to say: “I have the authority to lay it down; and I have the authority to take it up again.”  Christ willed every event of His life, for as God He knows everything and can do everything. But how wonderful that even though He objected, He submitted to His Mother when she said:“Son, they have no wine,” then out of profound respect for His Mother, He complied with her request and changed the water into wine, which proved to be of the highest quality!

“Behold, I lay in Sion for a foundation a stone, 
a tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation;
 he that believes in Him shall not be ashamed” (Is. 28:16).

      This biblical quote with but a few words proves the truth of Orthodoxy and the falsehood and fraud of the papacy.

    This precious stone and foundation of the Church can be no one but Jesus Christ, and whoever believes in Him who is the foundation stone shall not be ashamed but  those who do not believe in Him or believe in a false foundation stone cannot be saved. The prophet who wrote this did not refer to an ordinary stone or to a man but to God the Creator, for He said:”he that believes in Him.” No one can be saved by believing in Peter or any other man, for only Christ is our Savior.

     The papacy chose a different stone and foundation and rejected Christ as head and replaced Christ with a sinful human being, the Pope of Rome. They refer to Peter and the popes as being the foundation stones of their church. They claimed that Christ made Peter the foundation and bestowed authority upon Peter placing him above all the other apostles. Then Peter in turn bestowed this authority upon every Pope of Rome. The fact is that Peter never had superior authority over every other apostle, for Christ made them all equal.  But if anyone reads in the Acts in the Bible, they will readily see that it is the Holy Spirit gives orders, not Peter or the popes of Rome.

     “For other foundation can no man lay than that which is laid, which is Christ” (1 Cor. 3:11. The Bible condemns those who establish a different foundation other than Christ. The truth is that the Papacy usurped the authority belonging only to Christ and gave to their Popes. They went further when they insanely placed infallibility on the pope for infallibility belongs only to God. The Pope does not represent God, for he is head of a false and fraudulent church. The Apostles preached the Gospel everywhere and established bishops (not popes) to govern and rule the Church. The Papacy did away with all the bishops, stripped the authority from every bishop in the world, rendering them unable to challenge him, and all authority was claimed by the popes alone. Roman Catholics are not led by Christ but by agents of the pope. If anyone speaks against the pope, they will be reported to higher ups and subject to penalties.
