POPE FRANCIS CONDEMNS RACISM AND DECLARES THAT “ALL RELIGIONS ARE TRUE” AT HISTORIC THIRD VATICAN COUNCIL
To a chorus of thunderous applause, Pope Francis stated “because Muslims, Hindus and African Animists are also made in the very likeness and image of God, to hate them is to hate God! To reject them to is to reject God and the Gospel of Christ. Whether we worship at a church, a synagogue, a mosque or a mandir, it does not matter. Whether we call God, Jesus, Adonai, Allah or Krishna, we all worship the same God of love. This truth is self-evident to all who have love and humility in their hearts!”
And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns.
The woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality, Revelation 17: 3-4
I like the new pope. I like the fact that he’s not sleeping in the Vatican. I like his easy-going style. I like his smile. He seems like a nice guy. However, I’ve had my reservations from the get-go when I discovered he was a Jesuit. The Jesuits ran the inquisition which tortured and murdered millions of people, all in the name of God! What God? The god of this world, The Fallen One, Satan. http://www.voxfux.com/features/jesuits1.html So since Pope Francis took the reigns of the Catholic church I have been waiting to see what he would do as pope and more importantly what he would say. This recent statement above is both sobering and shocking and in my opinion lets us know who it is we are dealing with.
“because Muslims, Hindus and African Animists are also made in the very likeness and image of God, to hate them is to hate God.
I agree with him. We are all made in the image and likeness of God. I get that and it’s the reason why we can interact with anyone on the planet, no matter what they believe and love them as Messiah would have, whether they be Muslim, Hindu, African Animist or anything else! However, it’s the next statement that chills me to the bone because it is both terribly misleading and false.
Whether we call God, Jesus, Adonai, Allah or Krishna, we all worship the same God of love.
This statement is not true! Francis and others of his ilk may want it to be true, but unfortunately it is not. I realize I will most likely offend some people here but I speak from one who has gone through eastern mysticism and also the new age. I have had spirit guides. My third eye was open. I worshipped other gods. Nothing ever changed me inside until I asked Yashua into my life. No amount of mediation or good works ever changed me from the inside out. For those of you who think I’m talking about religion, I’m not. I am pointing to an experience that happened to the Apostles and the early church almost 2000 years ago, being born from above, to know the living God and have His spirit indwell us. It changed the ancient world. However, just a few centuries after the Apostles and the early church, Christianity became the state religion with the decree of the Roman Emperor Constantine, and then, the establishment of a priesthood with all its trappings took hold and the way—I’m not talking about the modern movement called The Way—became lost in the corruption of the church with indulgences, confessionals, the papacy and everything else that Luther protested against centuries later!
It is important to realize that we all don’t worship the same god of love, however prejudiced this might sound. There is only one who fulfilled countless prophecies concerning both His birth and death. There was only one who gave up His life for all mankind. There is only one Prince of Peace and it is Yashua/Jesus. There is only one who is coming back with the armies of heaven to defeat the Fallen One. There is only one who will sit as king in Jerusalem. There is only one who will gather all the tribes of the earth together and when they see Him the will mourn for Him as an only son.
Francis is setting the stage for the coming one world religion. He is stating that all religions worship the same god. I will never accept this and will fight against this with pen and paper, or in this case the Internet! God is a God of Love and He sent His son into the world. Perhaps Francis should get his Bible out, blow the dust off of it and read this:
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
This is Yashua/Jesus and no one else….
Now here’s the kicker! The story above according to SNOPES is a canard. Francis never said this and thus, my Blog post becomes moot, or does it?
