I really started working on this web site a lot more in 2003-2004 when I began seeing lots of propaganda in the alternative media realm against the Jewish people.
Being raised in a school system that was probably around 60 - 70% Jewish (the rest Roman Catholic), I have to say that I came to know them for who they are, fine upstanding, smart (normal) people.
I was friends with both Jewish and Catholics and care greatly for them all to this day. If they read this they would probably think this was stupid of me to write this. But that's because they haven't seen what I have seen. This anti-Jewish fury I see growing needs to be countered.
I myself am not a Jew according to ancestry according to fleshly descendants, but I consider myself to be a spiritual Jew and of the Jewish family and partaker of the wonderful promises given to them by God. Promises given through the Old Testament (Torah) to non-Jews through Abrahamís lineage (Isaac and Jacob).
I would also at this time like to share an important experience that had a big impact on me growing up. Not that it affected my attitude or thoughts toward the Jewish people. But I did think about the experience my whole life and I never forgot it. It was my first taste of anti-Semitism (Jew-hating).
I felt a calling on my life from God at very early age. I expressed this God-given desire to my mother. She talked it over with her older sister and suggested I go to the Catholic Church down the street.
I signed up for classes to ultimately receive confirmation into the Roman Catholic faith. I was also baptized.
One year, on the first day of classes the instructor was reading off the attendance sheet when he got to a name that I did not recognize. He stopped and looked up and asked her, "Are you Jewish?" She replied, "Yes I am." He asked her, "Why did you come here?" She replied, "To learn about your religion." The man began yelling at her and was very mad and said something like, "This isnít just some class to learn about a religion. This is about faith." He then made her collect her things and leave. I remember thinking, "Wow, you have to be Catholic to learn about God. (!!!)"
All through religion classes we never learned about the Jewishness of Jesus and His family and His lineage. Would you believe that I was shown that Jesus was Jewish through an incredibly powerful dream I had one night while in boot camp for the NAVY?
My friends, for whatever reason it may be this is the road I have traveled in researching the history of the Catholic Church. I think it is important to share what I have written here today as well as what I have found in my research. I have not done this to hurt anyone but to educate. I never learned these things in school but wish I had. Why should anyone continue to support an institution such as the Roman Catholic church when they have admittingly partook in genocides of non-Catholics for hundreds of years?
I was raised Catholic and love Catholics and I believe God does too. But I believe God wants Catholics to come out of this abusive church and come into the knowledge of the truth. From there you can take the next step.
Yours in the TRUTH. Thomas (Tommy) Richards
Why "Spiritually Smart"?
Many people misunderstand the meaning of the name of my website. It's very simple. What makes me who I am, whether you agree with me or not, is because of when I had my experience with the Lord in March of 1997.
It was then when I was introduced to the Fear of the Lord. The Bible defines the Fear of the Lord as Wisdom, (Job 28:28) and the beginning of wisdom and knowledge. (Proverbs 1:7, Psalm 111:10)
Thus I don't claim to be smart or wise according to worldly teaching but only simply Fear God.
SpirituallySmart.Com is a work in progress which is always evolving with updated information.
This Web Site was set up to combat misinformation about the Jews and other disinformation going around blaming many other groups for all the problems in the world. When it comes to fascism and other abominations in the earth, "ALL ROADS LEAD TO ROME." (Rev 17:5)
Important 2 1/2 minute video:
Statement from the man in above video took the words right out of my mouth!
It's hard to express myself in a way that many will not get offended or think i am just a bitter angry man. Truth is, i am neither of those things. But there is a time and season for all things and as a Christian there is a time to be angry.
"Be ye angry and sin not.......". Eph 4:26a
I'm not sinning being angry against the atrocities and abuses of Priesthood and the Catholic church in general. Through pictures and accurate history I have shown on my site that the Roman Catholic Church, The Vatican was behind the inquisition of the Jews that took place during WWII. I would say it's more of a sin to not be angry. the Lord commands "Be ye angry...."
John the baptist was angry. He was preaching against the sin of a king with a loud voice. God said that he was one of the greatest prophets that ever lived.
Jesus was angry too and He didn't sin. He rebuked the religious hypocrites and even fashioned a whip at one point and beat them out of the temple. It was the same Spirit that controlled Nehemiah who did similar things out of zeal for righteousness and godliness.
Today Christianity has been shipwrecked. i believe a lot of you love the Lord but you're not taking a stand against atrocities in this world and in this country.
The Bible is strict against lying. Bush lied to us. Many 'Christians' still stand by this president. Why? he hasn't repented of lying to get us into a war. They are now saying that a million Iraqi civilians have been murdered in cold blood over there.
Many soldiers have committed suicide. And yet almost the whole 'Christian realm is silent'. that makes me angry and maybe makes me think that YOU are now the religious hypocrites that Jesus beat out of the temple.
Why wouldn't you raise your voice out of the Holy Spirit's desire to have free course through your body. God wants to talk through you. he wants His voice to be heard. Paul said "Preach the gospel" Rebuke, reprove, exhort with all long suffering.
Do you know that when Jesus was preaching to the people it states, "and He CRIED with a loud voice...." Do you know that means He "Screamed", "Shrieked" (John 12:44)
So brothers and sisters. It must be done. Raise up your voices against sin.
Romans 10:14-15: 14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
I praise God for all of you who are making a stand but this needs to be preached in the pulpits. The 'Christian Leaders' need to be looking at things and taking a stand. Don't be afraid of persecution. The Lord says that's a sign a authenticity. If you keep quiet you are going along with the oppressor. Open your mouths against this beast system!
Thank you, Thomas Richards
