Wolves in Costume: Mother Teresa

When I was young, I remember hearing stories about a Roman Catholic nun named Mother Teresa (i.e. Agnes Bojaxhiu), and her work in helping the poor and needy. She was praised as a modern saint and example to the world. The image on this Time Magazine cover was common-place when I was little, along with quotations about how perfectly benevolent she was to everyone.

"Mother Teresa, who dedicated her life to helping the poor and the outcast, was considered by many as a living saint. With her death Friday in Calcutta at 87, she now seems to be an ideal candidate to be declared a saint of the Roman Catholic Church."
-USA Today, "Mother Teresa Destined for Sainthood," Sept 7, 1997, retrieved June 24, 2013, [http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/mothert/mother10.htm]
But today, it is becoming more common knowledge that Agnes (aka Mother Teresa) was nothing more than a pagan occultist, even though many still revere her as some sort of "matron" saint, despite her heretical actions and beliefs.
"There is only one God and He is God to all; therefore it is important that everyone is seen as equal before God. I've always said we should help a Hindu become a better Hindu, a Muslim become a better Muslim, and a Catholic become a better Catholic."
-Agnes Bojaxhiu, quoted by Jean M. Hiesberger, 52 Saints to Pray With, Paulist Press, 2010, p. 81-82, ISBN: 9780809146482

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
-2 Corinthians 6:14

Agnes was not separating herself from the pagan unbelievers, but rather, was yoking up directly with them to help them become "better" pagans in various religious cults. Mother Teresa is fantastic example of someone who spent her life working with the poor, becoming a symbol of charity to the world, and still ends up in hell without the Jesus Christ of the Bible because she didn't believe on Him.

Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
-Exodus 20:3

Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.
-1 Corinthians 10:14

Agnes's belief was that the god of the Hindus and the god of the Muslims and the god of the Catholics was all the same god, and then heretically applied the character of those false gods to the Christian God of the Bible:
"Some call Him Ishwar, some call Him Allah, some simply God, but we have to acknowledge that it is He who made us for greater things: to love and be loved. What matters is that we love. We cannot love without prayer, and so whatever religion we are, we must pray together."
-Agnes Bojaxhiu (Mother Teresa), Everything Starts from Prayer, ReadHowYouWant.com, 2010, p. 4, ISBN: 9781458778956

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
-Ephesians 5:11

Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth... And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
-John 17:17-19
(Sanctified means "set apart")

Every false religion on the planet (from Paganism to Evolutionism) is involved in idolatry because they make up a false god to suit their personal preferences, and Agnes is no exception because she made up a false god that would accept any religious practice as truth. She publically demonstrated her beliefs for pagan religions when she knelt down to pray to their idols, specifically the "Bhudda" altar in this photograph.

"I love all religions... If people become better Hindus, better Muslims, better Buddhists by our acts of love, then there is something else growing there."
-Agnes Bojaxhiu, quoted by Karl Keiper, Wayseeker: Making Your Own Faith, self published, 2009, p. 219, ISBN: 9780982470305

For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
-2 Corinthians 11:13-15

Something is definitely "growing there," it's called the doctrines of devils.

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
-1 Timothy 4:1-2

Agnes was more concerned that she "get along" with her neighbors than she was about the truth. We have been commanded to love our neighbors, and do unto them as we would do unto ourselves (Lev 19:18, Mat 22:39), but that doesn't mean we give in to Satan and teach his lies so our neighbor will like us.

The above book I quoted is titled Making Your Own Faith, and that is an excellent summation of the new-age apostate church. Everyone wants to make up a "god" that will love everything they do and say, and will automatically bring them to heaven because they believe they're such "good" people with all their spiritualism. In fact, right before Agnes's quotation above, the author quotes Scripture from a new-age version, but I will quote it from the King James Bible:

For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
-Romans 11:36

Of course this passage is the truth of our Lord Jesus Christ, but the author is teaching heresy by implying that pagan religions created by man are somehow part of the glory of God. That's absurd! The context of Romans 11 deals with Jew and Gentile both having equal part in the promises of Salvation and mercy of God, and that both Jew and Gentile will give glory to Jesus Christ in the end. (i.e. Even sinners will give glory to God because they're sinful lust will be more evidence of the truth of God's Word.) No where does this chapter imply, in any sense, that pagan religions are creations of the Christian God of the Bible, and no where does it even remotely imply that sinful pagan religions and practices will be forgiven without the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I have already had emails from people infuriated by this article, claiming that Agnes was a follower of Jesus Christ because she talked about him all the time. Let's look at her belief in her "jesus" a little closer:
"In the following she [Mother Teresa] addressed priests at the Worldwide Retreat for Priests in October 1984, in Paul VI Audience Hall, Vatican City: '...only when the priest is there can we have our altar and our tabernacle and our Jesus. Only the priest can PUT Jesus there for us... Jesus wants to go there, but we cannot bring him unless you first give him to us... This is one of the reasons you are called 'another Christ.'"
-Kendrick A. Kendall, Blow the Trumpets, Trafford Publishing, 2005, p. 28, ISBN: 9781412063920

Agnes believed that Jesus Christ was in the priest of the diabolically evil Roman Catholic Church! Not only that, but if they aren't actually Christ Himself, then they have full power and control over Him, and that is dangerous heresy of the upmost seriousness.

Agnes reveals more of her beliefs:
"Whether you are a Hindu, a Moslem or a Christian, how you live your life is the proof that you are fully his or not. We must not condemn or judge or pass words that will hurt people. Maybe a person has never heard of Christianity. We do not know what way God is appearing to that soul and what way God is drawing that soul, and therefore who are we to condemn anybody? It matters to the individual what church he belongs to. If that individual thinks and believes that this is the only way to God for her or him, this is the way God comes into their life — his life. If he does not know any other way and if he has no doubt so that he does not need to search then this is his way to salvation. This is the way God comes into his life."
-Agnes Bojaxhiu (Mother Teresa), Life in the Spirit: Reflections, Meditations, and Prayers, Harper & Row, 1983, p. 82, ISBN: 9780060660215

Let's break this down. First, "how you live your life" is not the determining factor in whether or not you are a child of God, and we can return right back to Romans 11 for that:

And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.
-Romans 11:6

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
-Ephesians 2:8

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
-John 14:6

Next, we are supposed to judge the fruit of another, and sharing God's Law with sinners (which is how they come to Christ to begin with, Gal 3:24) is automatically going to hurt people. Sharing the truth that we are guilty before a holy and righteous God is not something people generally want to hear, but we are supposed to be the salt of the earth, and as a Christian, are not irritating other people, then you're not doing your job.
(Read "Un-biblical Cop-Outs: Don't Judge Me!" here at creationliberty.com for more details.)

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
-Matthew 5:13

Agnes says we shouldn't hurt anyone, which in context means, we should make anyone feel bad about what they believe. The entire Bible consists of making people feel bad about their wicked ways, which is called rebuke and reproof, and people "feeling bad" is called guilt, which is godly sorrow (repentance) that brings people to the foot of the cross.

Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing. For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
-2 Corinthians 7:9-10
(Read "Is Repentance Necessary for Salvation?" here at creationliberty.com for more details.)

Why would Agnes teach that all the world is supposed to love us, when Jesus Christ said they would hate us? If Agnes were correct, Jesus Christ would have told us: "Look, if you're REALLY, REALLY nice to everybody, the whole world would love and honor you, giving you worldwide coverage of your wonderful deeds through television and awards." I'm sorry, but that's not anywhere found in Scripture, and Angus's teachings is at odds with the teachings of Christ in almost every aspect.

And finally, if each individual is accepted by God no matter what they believe, then why does God's Word tell us there's only one way?

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
-1 Timothy 2:5

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
-Matthew 7:13

The following quotation is from a Catholic author who highly reveres Mother Teresa:
"Mother Teresa would insist that what is beautiful and true in Hinduism and other religions is what leads to love and fraternity [brotherhood]."
-David Scott, The Love That Made Mother Teresa: How Her Secret Visions and Dark Knights Can Help You Conquer the Slums of Your Heart, Sophia Institute Press, 2014, p. 91, ISBN: 9781622822003; Scott is a Catholic author, and has published for Our Sunday Visitor, Catholic News Agency, and serves as Vice Chancellor for Communications for the Archbishop of Los Angeles.

He just stated that paganism is what brings people together. I agree, idolatry does bring people together in the flesh, but the Word of God is the sword of the Lord Jesus Christ that divides his children away from sin in the flesh.

Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
-Matthew 10:34

Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:
-Luke 12:51
(Read "Did Christ Come to Bring Peace?" here at creationliberty.com for more details.)

It is quite clear that Agnes did not believe, nor understand, the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Mother Teresa believed in another false gospel, and served and worshiped the false "jesus" of the Catholics, the ecumenical false god that is bringing the world into a false peace.

"Of course I convert. I convert you to be a better Hindu or a better Muslim or a better Protestant. Once you’ve found God, it's up to you to decide how to worship him."
-Agnes Bojaxhiu (Mother Teresa), Maryknoll, Vol. 92, Catholic Foreign Mission Society of America, 1998, p. 317

Mother Teresa tells people to do whatever feels right in their own eyes:

Ye shall not do after all the things that we do here this day, every man whatsoever is right in his own eyes.
-Deuteronomy 12:8

There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
-Proverbs 14:12

Agnes does NOT want to convert these people as the Bible defines it; leading them away from sin into the righteousness of Christ:

Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
-Acts 3:19

Agnes's version of conversion is whatever diety feels good to you, turn to that pagan idol and worship it. Of course, since she was not a Christian, and pushing the ecumincal agenda, the Catholic church gives her "sainthood" back in 2010, and the hypocrisy of other Catholic organizations is staggering when it concerns issues like this.
For example, onetruecatholicfaith.com is a Catholic website that exposes heresies of the Catholic church, and they know about and speak out against the heretical practices of Mother Teresa, condemn the Catholic church for their support of her, but at the same time still practice Catholicism. The problem is that the Vatican and Roman Pope, are the foundation of the Catholic church, and when organizations like onetruecatholicfaith.com condemns the actions of the Catholic church as apostate, as they state on their website, the Catholic church automatically condemns them as apostate for opposing the ruling of the Holy See because the Pope is supposed to be infalliable.
(See "Corruptions of Christianity: Catholicism," here at creationliberty.com for more details)

Agnes's pagan beliefs and doctrines have been passed on to her heirs because now they worship idols of Agnes, and pray to her as if she's a god. Idols of her are sold all around the world, and many Catholics pray to them.

Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
-1 John 5:21

"When one pays a visit to Mother House, the heart of the 58-year-old Missionaries of Charity founded by Mother Teresa, one doesn’t see anything out of the ordinary... Locals come in ones and twos, bow in front of a statue of the woman they fondly call Maa and go inside the small chapel where her body has been resting for 13 years."
-Matthew Thomas, "Pointing Fingers At Mother Teresa's Heirs," Forbes, Aug 10, 2010, retrieved Dec 17, 2014, [forbes.com/2010/08/10/forbes-india-mother-teresa-charity-critical-public-review.html]

There are many places around the world that setup statues and images of Mother Teresa. This is not a secluded practice, but something done very commonly around the world, especially in countries where paganism and Catholicism (another form of paganism) flourish.
Others have claimed miracles by praying to Mother Teresa with pagan symbols:
"Mrs Besra became an overnight celebrity in September 1998 when she reported that she had been cured of a tumour after praying to Mother Teresa while pressing a medallion bearing the nun's image to her side. The "miracle" was claimed as Mother Teresa's first posthumous act of healing – she died in 1997 – and was cited at a ceremony in October 2003 in which the Albanian-born nun was beatified [announced to enter heaven] by the Vatican."
-Peter Foster, "Mother Teresa 'Miracle' Patient Accuses Nuns," The Telegraph, Sept 5, 2007, retrieved Dec 17, 2014, [telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/1562284/Mother-Teresa-miracle-patient-accuses-nuns.html]

It's amazing to me that Catholic Church proclaims someone to go from their pagan false concept of "purgatory," a state of spiritual limbo to go work out all your sins, to heaven, when there is absolutely no way for them to know such a thing. Worse still is that these people believe these signs to be of God, when they are actually of the Devil.
(Read "Corruptions of Christianity: Catholicism - Purgatory, The Magic Safety Net" here at creationliberty.com for more details.)

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
-2 Thessalonians 2:10

Many people believe that any miraculous event is automatically from the Lord God, but that's not what the Bible tells us. Certainly the Lord Jesus Christ performed miracles, but that was to be a sign to the Jews, and the Bible teaches us that if we put emphasis on miracles, we will be deceived by devils working wonders that lie. Our emphasis should be put on the Lord Jesus Christ's doctrines in His Word.

Furthermore, they honestly believe that Mother Teresa has special god-like powers, and she will come down to heal people. There many problems with this, but the main message they are teaching through these beliefs is that men have the power to become gods, and then the Lord God is ignored while heathen praise and worship their new personified idol.

These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.
-Pslam 50:21

However, the Catholic church simply uses instances like this as a money-maker that gains them popularity in the media. The promises they make to these families are quickly dismissed when story dies down on TV and newspapers.
"However more than a decade later, Mrs Besra says she has been abandoned by the nuns who escorted her to Rome four years ago as living proof of their Mother Superior's healing powers... 'They made of lot of promises to me and assured me of financial help for my livelihood and my children's education. After that, they forgot me. I am living in penury. My husband is sick. My children have stopped going to school as I have no money. I have to work in the fields to feed my husband and five children.'"
-Peter Foster, "Mother Teresa 'Miracle' Patient Accuses Nuns," The Telegraph, Sept 5, 2007, retrieved Dec 17, 2014, [telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/1562284/Mother-Teresa-miracle-patient-accuses-nuns.html]

Mother Teresa is primarily used as a symbol for the ecumenical movement of Rome:
"At Mother's funeral in 1997, where I was present, we had the impression that Mother Teresa had brought the whole of India and the whole world together.
-Archbishop of Kolkata, quoted by Thomas D'Souza, "Mother Teresa's Legacy For A 'New Evangelisation' in the Year of Faith," Asia News, Sept 5, 2012, retrieved Dec 18, 2014, [asianews.it/news-en/Mother-Teresa%27s-legacy-for-a-new-evangelisation-in-the-Year-of-Faith-25732.html]

Agnes never attempted to teach people the truth in order to convert them to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and thus, her followers will not do so either. Her all-inclusive new-age cult continues to grow and spread.
"We have gathered together to thank God for the 40 years of the beautiful work that the United Nations have put in for the good of the people, and as we begin the year of peace, let us say the prayer, you have all got one, we say the prayer together for peace. For works of love are works of peace. We say it together so that we may obtain peace and God can give us peace, by uniting us together."
-Agnes Bojaxhiu (Mother Teresa), "Blessed Mother Teresa's Address to the United Nations," 40th Anniversary of UN, Oct 26, 1985

United together in pagan and demonic heresies, they will say prayers together for peace and safety.

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
-1 Thessalonians 5:3

And it's a false peace that the UN works towards because what they really want is total control over all nations. Though our Lord Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace, as we read earlier, He specifically told us that He did not come to bring peace.

Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:
-Luke 12:51

This farse of so-called "peace" is Satan's plan to destroy the world, and it is no surprise that Agnes supports such a plan, because an Archbishop of the Catholic Church came forward in 2001 and admitted to Mother Teresa being demonically possessed:
"Senior church officials in Kolkata, previously called Calcutta, India, acknowledge Mother Teresa had an exorcism performed on her in the later years of life... The exorcism took place in a hospital where she had gone for cardiac problems, said Archbishop of Calcutta Henry D'Souza... He said he noticed that while Mother Teresa was calm during the day, at night she appeared 'extremely agitated...' He said that is when he believed Mother Teresa 'might be under the attack of the evil one.'"
-Satinder Bindra, "Archbishop: Mother Teresa Underwent Exorcism," CNN, Sept 7, 2001, [edition.cnn.com/2001/WORLD/asiapcf/south/09/04/mother.theresa.exorcism]

In order to be that well-loved by the world, one would have to be demon-possessed. The Devil doesn't invite you to be honored in his ceremonies unless you play for his team.

The following is an interview done with Agnes in Nepal:
"INTERVIEWER: Do you believe if they die believing in Shiva or in Ram [Hinduism] they will go to heaven?
MOTHER TERESA: Yes, that is their faith. My own faith will lead me to God... so if they have believed in their god very strongly, if they have faith, surely they will be saved."

-Roy Livesey, Understanding Deception, New Wine Press, 1987, p. 165, ISBN: 9780947852290

That's what makes me so angry about the whole Mother Teresa farse; she is compassing land and sea to make men proselyte (converting them to her religious views), and then makes them into twofold the child of hell that she is.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
-Matthew 23:15

"INTERVIEWER: Today it does not seem that the Catholic Church is trying to convert anymore. I know that John Paul II is saying now that those of other religions are saved. You do not believe they are lost anyway, right?
MOTHER TERESA: No, they are not lost. They are saved according to their faith, you know. If they believe whatever they believe, that is their salvation."

-Roy Livesey, Understanding Deception, New Wine Press, 1987, p. 165, ISBN: 9780947852290

Mother Teresa may not have been able to understand this concept, but the Bible explains it very clearly:

He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
1 John 5:12

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
-John 3:18

To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.
-Acts 10:43

It's too late for Agnes; she died without understanding, blind, and her hopes in a pagan god that could not save her.

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
-Hebrews 9:27

But it's not too late for those who are still alive, and I pray to our Lord Jesus Christ that those of you who are unfamiliar with deceivers like Agnes, that your eyes be opened to the truth. The things Agnes stood for were abomination in the sight of God, and she still won Gallup Poll's "Most Admired Woman of the Year" in America at least four times (that I'm aware of), making her very highly esteemed among men.

Demotivational Poster Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa's whole life was spent trying to reinforce the devil's lie that all men worship the same "god" and that all are going to heaven. When the Bible uses the phrase "a wolf in sheep's clothing," it means that the wolf won't look like a wolf; she will look like a gentle, kind, bright and loving old lady that can do no wrong, but inwardly, Agnes believed and taught the doctrine of devils.
