The actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found inside his apartment this morning, dead of a heroin overdose. A syringe needle was still in his left arm. He was only 46.
An early drug addict, he claimed to have gotten sober when he was 22, after entering rehab. Last year, he checked into rehab again for prescription drug and heroin addiction.
It's doubtful that he had really been sober for nearly 25 years. But even taking him at his word, rehab centers have low success rates, and people easily relapse, once they have completed the program. That's because addiction is a spiritual problem, requiring a spiritual cure.
You can't beat an addiction without God's help. When one prays the Rosary everyday, believes in the traditional Catholic faith, makes a confession to a valid priest, and resolves never to use drugs or alcohol, one will be delivered of his addictions, whatever they are.
If Mr. Hoffman had prayed the Rosary everyday, he would have beaten his addiction, guaranteed. He would have realized that rehab centers are generally useless, and he'd still be alive today.
The Jews defy God by denying Jesus Christ as the Savior. Whether they are believers of their false religion or atheists, the Jews hates Christianity and Christ with a vengeance. They thus lack a healthy spiritual life, which plays itself out in their stranglehold of gentile societies via control of the mass media, the banking system, the pornographic industry, and the government (via AIPAC). It plays itself out in the Middle East by their murderous, barbaric treatment of the Palestinians.
It should be pointed out that not all Jews hate Jesus or Christians. Some have even converted to the traditional Catholic faith. Marie-Alphonse Ratisbonne is a notable (and noble) example of a Jew who became a Catholic priest, and dedicated his life to converting his fellow Jews. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marie-Alphonse_Ratisbonne
There will be no peace with the Jews unless and until they convert to the traditional Catholic faith. Only then, will they be saved, and relieved of their age-old torment as parasitic outsiders with sociopathic tendencies.
Clip from a "60 Minutes" interview with Philip Seymour Hoffman:
Note his cocky attitude as he recalls his drug addiction. It is the attitude of a man who lacks seriousness and moral order in his life. At one point, he said he liked it. That was an extremely irresponsible thing to say, especially since that message goes out to millions of people, many of whom would probably try drugs as a result of him saying he liked it.
That kind of cocky behavior doesn't go forgotten or unpunished. It comes back, and bites you hard, as it did for Mr. Hoffman.
Philip Seymour Hoffman was just another typical American who put on a macho act, and acted as though he were invincible, when in reality, he was WAAYYYYY out of his league. You don't beat a drug or alcohol addiction by pretending to be John Wayne. You beat an addiction by SUBMITTING your life to God, and praying for His help. And He will help, if you pray the 15 decade Rosary everyday, and believe in the traditional Catholic faith.
