Donald Trump last week called the pope “a very political person” and implied Francis was being used by the Mexican government.
“I think Mexico got him to do it,” Trump sniffed, “because Mexico wants to keep the border just the way it is because they’re making a fortune and we’re losing.”
Not just this particular Jesuit Popes but the Catholic Church at large has been making alliances with world governments on political matters.
Pope Pius XII’s (1876-1958) actions during the Holocaust remain controversial. For much of the war, he maintained a public front of indifference and remained silent while German atrocities were committed. He refused pleas for help on the grounds of neutrality, while making statements condemning injustices in general. Privately, he sheltered a small number of Jews and spoke to a few select officials, encouraging them to help the Jews.
The Bible in Daniel and Revelation defines the last Kingdom as different from the previous three. This Kingdom is both a Political and Spiritual Kingdom (remember the clay and iron that would not mix? Dan 2:42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. ).
The Catholic Church today is the Pagan Roman Kingdom that God calls “Babylon and Mother of Harlots in Revelations.” Read that here.
And remember, the Pope is the head of the Roman Catholic Church and President of the Vatican. And when he visits another states, he does so on both religious and political grounds as such he stays at the official Vatican residence.
