Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmed Al- Tayyeb, Culture and Apologetic
|The Roman Catholic Church has always had an interesting relationship with Islam. According to the “Catechism of the Catholic Church” …
841 The Church’s relationship with the Muslims. “The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind’s judge on the last day.”
Here the RCC seems to infer that Muslims and Catholics worship the same God that Abraham placed his faith in some 3500 years ago. This misconception is hard to understand in light of Islams clear
teaching against the trinitarian concept which defines Christian belief.
“They do blaspheme who say: Allah is one of three in a Trinity: for there is no god except One Allah. If they desist not from their word (of blasphemy), verily a grievous penalty will befall the blasphemers among them,” (Quran 5:73, Yusuf Ali).
Islam not only denies the Trinity but fails to accept Jesus and His messianic ministry and His divine nature. One must ask, how can the RCC be so wrong and claim to be the one true church? With this in mind, let us look at this recent document that the Pope signed and what exactly are they agreeing upon.
The document starts with the statement “In the name of God who has created all human beings equal in rights, duties and dignity…”
The term is used broadly in order to make it possible for Islam and Catholicism to sign on to. With no clear defining of who God is, Mormons, Jehovah Witness, New Age and all the other false religions might be able to sign on to this document seeing that the term God can mean anything. This type of ecumenical compromise is dangerous if not heretical because it gives the false notion that we all worship the same God at some level. God is not something we define and characterize but He defines Himself through His own revelation and we either accept His definition or we worship false images.
Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmed Al- Tayyeb, Culture and Apologetic
This last February Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al-Ahmed gathered together to work on a document called HUMAN FRATERNITY for world peace and living together. (http://w2.vatican. va/content/francesco/en/travels/2019/outside/documents/papa-
The document was signed by both parties on February 5th, 2019 and has been the topic of discussion ever since. This coming together by these two religious leaders is a noble attempt to promote peace and put an end to terrorism while promoting a climate of tolerance. On the surface most people would be excited by this agreement and it’s attempt to solve many of the social ills plaguing the world but as one begins to read this document, concerns and questions begin to arise.
Pope Francis, who became the first Jesuit ever elected to the position of Pope, has been a controversial figure from the very beginning. Many comments such as an earlier homily in May where Francis stated, «The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ, all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‹Father, the atheists?› Even the atheists. Everyone!» Or when Francis had this to say about homosexuals: “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” His approach is clearly a departure from traditional doctrinal statements within the Roman Catholic Church. As these departures seem to become more frequent by Pope Francis, one must now study and scrutinize statements, talks and documents he signs on to. What are we to make of this man who holds the position of “Vicar of Christ” (earthly representative of Christ) and claims to speak on His behalf.
A term used and implied throughout the article is the idea of “tolerance”. Here the document hopes to spread the “culture of tolerance” in the hopes of ending “war, conflicts, moral decay and cultural decline.” Intolerance is said to be one of the causes of the strife and wars over the history of mankind. To be intolerant is the great sin of our time.
The word tolerance has morphed in meaning over the last forty years or so. The idea of acceptance of other people’s ideas or opinions has changed to the idea that all opinions are of equal value and moral relativism is something we should all accept. Everyone is entitled to their own truth in our culture. The search for truth is now meaningless because absolute truth no longer exist. This idea as developed in the document HUMAN FRATERNITY continues when speaking of
“the importance of awakening religious awareness” and the “truth of religion”. The term religion is universal in nature much like the idea that truth is universal in meaning. When you call people to “religious awakening” which religion are you referring to? Islam? Christianity? Baal? Molech? Are all religions equal? Shouldn’t we be searching for truth and knowing the one true God? Not in this document.
The universalistic approach taken by this document is seen in the following statement. “The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings”. All religions are part of the great plan of God. This universalistic approach as promoted throughout the document “constitutes an invitation to reconciliation and fraternity among all believers, indeed among believers and non-believers, among all people of good will”. Truth is sacrificed on the altar of tolerance, the great virtue of our time. In the quest for peace, compromise and tolerance are the means by which the Pope and the Iman hope to find
“universal peace” in this life. Scripture tells us differently.
This Pope may claim to be the Vicar of Christ but from a Biblical lens, nothing could be further from the truth. Many of his views and much of the teachings held by the Roman Catholic Church are no longer aligned with Biblical Christianity. The reformation was one of many attempts to reform the RCC but they failed to listen. The compromise promoted by this document seems to open the door to the idea of a «one world religion» spoken about in the Book of Revelations. The ecumenical tone promoted in this document is appeasing to our “culture of tolerance” but it has nothing to do with
the gospel message of scripture. The culture wants you to believe that all roads lead to heaven which helps to promote universal salvation. Unfortunately, scripture tells us differently. When speaking of Jesus, Acts 4:12 claims “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
The exclusive claims of Christianity can never be compromised for the sake of tolerance. Jesus, the God/man, came and died for our sins. No other religion makes that kind of truth claim. Nothing close.
The document HUMAN FRATERNITY is useless in its quest for world peace. Its humanistic values and pleas for tolerance under the idea of all religions will never cure the social issues and bring about lasting peace. If you want peace then look upon who is called “the prince of peace”. Jesus of Nazareth!

Yet Another Monday Morning!
TWO Saudi oil tankers were hit by a “sabotage attack” off the United Arab Emirates, it was announced this morning – as tensions flare between the US and Iran.
This what the OSPREY has to say about the escalation:
Will not go well for Iran. Huge miscalculation if they fire. Know more on this. Trump is not Obama. “Osprey”
L. A.: Kings go to war in the spring. Iran has been chanting death to Israel like clockwork ever since the Mullah’s took control decades ago. They know if they close the Strait of Hormuz there will be retaliation. However one must ask, are they blinded by their own Ideological hubris which believes they are doing the work of Allah? As the Osprey states if Iran is foolish enough to launch any kind of attack against Israel it will not go well for them.
J.J. Abrams, Jordan Peele to Donate HBO Show Profits to Fight Georgia’s ‘Heartbeat’ Law
L. A.: There is a great divide in our country and it’s becoming more glaring with each passing day. How can anyone deny that where there is a heartbeat there is life? Of course, I would posit that life begins at the moment of conception. We are living in very troublesome times. When Hollywood elites who act as the arbitrators of truth, tell us they will fight the heartbeat law perhaps it’s time to push back and stand up against the insanity of killing a baby in the womb. Maybe we won’t go and spend our hard-earned money at their movies and so there won’t be any profits to share. How about that guys?
Washington Post Defends Rashida Tlaib’s Holocaust Comments, Attacks Republicans
Tlaib also made the awkward remark that “[t]here’s always kind of a calming feeling I tell folks when I think of the Holocaust,” meaning that she felt reassured about the “fact” [sic] that Palestinians had helped Jews (they did not).
L. A.: The Arabs were aligned with Hitler during WWII. The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem is shown in the picture shaking hands with Der Fuhrer. Need I say more? HAMAS, Hezbollah, The Muslim Brotherhood, Al Nusra, are all Arabs who hate Israel and want her pushed into the sea. Tlaib’s remarks have nothing to do with the actual events surrounding the Holocaust. They are nothing but political doublespeak.
Press Secretary Sarah Sanders is one of the brightest people in the current administration. She has a very quick wit about her During a recent press conference a reporter with MSNBC hollered from the press corps, “Where is
President Trump hiding his tax returns? Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders astutely responded,
“We’ve found a very secure place and I’m certain they won’t be found.”
“And just where is that?” asked the reporter sarcastically. Mrs. Sanders grinned sardonically and said,” They are underneath Obama’s college records, his passport application, his immigration status as student, his funding sources to pay for college, his college records and his Selective Service registration. Next question?”
L. A.: Double standard anyone? Where is the birth certificate and why is that some people who examined it insist it was fake. Where are the college records? Cover up? Obummer doubled our national debt, lit the Whitehouse up with rainbow colors after the Supreme court gave the thumbs up to Gay marriage—what a travesty, bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, and then told us we didn’t make that. I could go on but you get the point.

Backers ‘failed to follow through’ in abortive uprising, Guaido tells AFP
Commentary & Analysis
L. A. Marzulli
Venezuela is still in economic in free-fall. We should pay close attention as the revolution seems to have petered out… at least for now. This assessment of the current situation in Venezuela is insightful and gives us a deeper look into understanding the complexity of the situation.
I still believe that socialism will never work, however as ‘Osprey’ states when people get “free stuff” they will become loyal to whoever is giving them the free stuff. Remember the video from the 2010 election and the Obama-Phone-Lady?
Obama gave me a cell phone? This the mentality, or lack of it, which helped Obama get another term, free stuff.
There you have it. Just like the Romans, bread and circus. Nothing changes and Maduro did his little dance knowing that he clings to power… at least for now.
Venezuela INTEL by
I was assigned to do a brief on the situation. So, I asked the people who really know and have deeper insight.
America expected a revolution, yet nothing happened. The crowds were in Caraccas, the capital and rarely anywhere else. They dissolved as fast as they formed.
The country is run like many of the Latin American countries by a strongman and the Army. In this case, Chavez used the energy money to provide a deep probe of socialism into the Mestizo population. He provided free medical care, dental care, vision care, and a living stipend. All of this contrary to US capitalism (well noted by US diplomats in DC) and their perspective on government providing these services to the general population……..anywhere. Chavez relied upon Cuban national medical resources to provide the care.
Chavez did indeed bankrupt the country with his hair-brained social and economic policies. But he was native Indian descent. One of the people as the saying goes. He cared little for the social elite of the capital and their politics. And they intern cared less for him. He embarrassed them. He courted the Russians economically and was a Che revolutionary at heart. His successor Maduro is not quite so native, but clearly understands the dynamics.
Compare this to the American choice, a flashy young capitalist from the social elite of Caracas. But with absolutely no affection for the native Indian population or their support. And it appears they have none for him. So, no revolution. In fact, they could not care less. The people in the capital never did anything for them. Chavez was the first to put them first, flawed as he was. You cannot rule the country from the capital and have that as your primary base of support. Only support. Russia understands this, and a great deal more than we give them credit for. At the upper end of the all-important military, there is strong for Maduro. And he has returned the favor by providing them with the necessities of life when others go without. American attempts to challenge this support has fallen on deaf ears. On the bottom end, the rank and file soldiers are native sons like Chavez. They recall he was one of them. They tend to be poor and uneducated, but well-armed and reasonably trained.
Now US policymakers, turn that abound. CIA is most frustrated. Monroe Doctrine be damned.
Americans never get it. We think everyone is like us and wants to be.
Monday Morning Musings with Marzulli
CEASEFIRE REACHED AFTER HAMAS, ISLAMIC JIHAD FIRE 700 ROCKETS AT ISRAEL
Some 700 rockets have been fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip since the security situation escalated over the weekend.
The Iron Dome intercepted 173 rockets, according to Channel 12.
Notice that Iron Dome only intercepted 173 out of the 700 rockets fired at Israel. This is disconcerting because if and when Islamic Jihad, HAMAS, and Hezbollah ever join together the rocket barrage would be from both Lebanon in the north and Gaza to the east. This would up the ante for Israel. Add to that Iran and Turkey with their Air Force and you have a four front war with Israel. However, cooler heads have prevailed at least for the moment. I want to add that Israel gave up Gaza for the Land-for-peace deal that was the essence of the Oslo accords. Israel gave up the land but there is no peace. Make no mistake about it, HAMAS, Hezbollah and the Mullah’s in Iran, as well as Erdogan of Turkey, have one deep seeded goal, to wipe Israel off the map.
Aircraft carrier sent to Middle East after indications Iran planned attack on US forces
Iran has one offensive move that would put the world on notice…close the Strait of Hormuz. To the left is the map which shows the narrow waterway which about 30% of the world’s oil sails through. Iran has threatened to close the strait. Oil is the life-blood of the planet. Under Obama, we were importing oil and were in some way dependent on foreign oil. Under President Trump, we are now EXPORTING oil. Big change huh? However, the US will not sit idly by while the Mullah’s in Iran chant death to America every Friday afternoon and think that they are doing the work of Allah by closing Hormuz. The tension certainly is escalating in the Middle East.
CNN WROTE OVER 20 ARTICLES ON COVINGTON CATHOLIC STUDENTS, IGNORES PHILLY MUSLIM CHILDREN CHANTING ABOUT CHOPPING OFF HEADS
(The picutre above is not related to the article but demonstrates the ideology of Jihad)
The Double standard of the MSM never ceases to amaze me. All one need to do is look at Europe. The inflow of Muslims has changed the cultural landscape of the entire continent. Over 130 churches were set fire in France in just one month. Christians are marginalized, grooming gangs rape young girls and in some cases go unpunished. The real problem is that this “cancer” is already in Philadelphia. Of course, if I point this out I’m called an Islamaphobe. Seriously?

Audrey is in Hospital and is need of our prayers…
I know this is something that you don’t normally do. My name is Jeff Dagher and my wife is Sharon, you did a UFO interview with me a year ago and I really enjoyed talking with you. We have been following you ever since you first appeared on Prophesy in the News with Gary.
The reason I am writing to you is we need help and we’re hoping you could put the word out to all the people who follow you. I will try to make this as brief as possible, so here goes. My wife and I are both disabled and only have disability insurance to see us through. My wife Sharon has had over 40 back operations and procedures in the last 25 years, but in this past couple of years, it has been extremely rough not only for her but for me too. In 2010 our oldest daughter who was only 27 passed away from an accidental overdose.
She was in a bad marriage and when she passed that was the last time we had contact with our grandson. To lose a child is, well words can’t even describe what a parent feels unless they have been through it, but to also lose your first grandchild on top of it is crushing. Then in 2017, Sharon went to Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville Florida to have a stomach bypass in order to lose some weight for major spine surgery to repair broken hardware in her back. She had a long time hernia they thought they would repair also, this is where everything went downhill. The stomach surgery went well, six weeks later they went in to repair the hernia and installed mesh, hours after the surgery Sharon was complaining that it felt like glass was under her skin and ripping her apart. They ran tests and MRI’s only to find out the mesh had detached from its location broke apart and attached itself to her colon, liver, and gallbladder. Needless to say they had to go back in and remove all the mesh and detach it from these vital organs. Just before the surgery they took another MRI and the technitains found a cancerous mass on her left ovary, they also found that her gal-bladder had mysteriously enlarged to 7 times its normal size. So priorities changed they went in removed as much mesh as they could find and had to remove her gal-bladder too. While she was recovering the next day, we received a call that her mother had slipped and fallen in the nursing home she resided at in Colorado. Sharon was not allowed to leave and go see her since she just came out of surgery and unfortunately her mother succumb to her injuries a few days later. Sharon was not even allowed to attend her mothers funeral as they were too worried she could develop a blood clot. Eight weeks later Sharon had to go back and Have a full hysterectomy to remove the mass on her ovary. Sharon is now having major difficulties eating after all this and her health is deteriorating from malnutrition. They have also found out her liver is giving out. She has been diagnosed with non-alcoholic liver disease and she has been put on a transplant list. They are trying to find out why she is unable to eat without getting ill, but right now her bones are deteriorating because she cant eat so her body is stealing nutrients from her bones and making them weak which in turn is hampering her back surgery. If her bones are not strong they will not hold the new hardware that needs to be installed. To add insult to injury our house that we have been renting for the past 11 years our landlord has decided to sell, so now we have to find somewhere else to live while Sharon is in this condition. Like I stated earlier we are both disabled. In 2010 my back finally gave out from all the years of abuse from construction. I have 3 disks in my neck that are ruptured, major spinal stenosis in the mid back, where the spinal canal is almost completely closed off and 4 disks in my lower back that are ruptured. My doctors will not operate saying there is just too much and are afraid they will just make things worse. We are very strong and faithful believers in Jesus but to be attacked on this many fronts tries even the strongest. I don’t ever ask for help but it’s gotten to the point where if I don’t ask we will be in a lot of trouble. We have accumulated such a massive amount of medical debt, medication and supplies for Sharon and my self are astronomical. So we are asking for help from anyone who is able. I have set up a Go Fund Me Page for Sharon and I am asking if you could ask all your followers if they could donate anything, anything at all to help us. Our goal is $ 50,000 that’s how much we are in debt at the moment. I am hoping you will put the word out for us and again I thank you,
Sincerely Jeff Dagher , P.S. here is the link for the Go Fund Me Page https://www.gofundme.com/jeff-amp-sharon-dagher
