Well, let’s not forget that the current ‘war’ the Pope is referring to are the continuous Jihadist attacks by Muslim extremists. Let us also not forget that this is the very religion that the Catholic Church created, doing what it was created to do.
Pope Francis said on Wednesday that a string of recent attacks, including the murder of a priest in France, was proof that the “world is at war”.
However, speaking to reporters aboard a plane taking him to Poland, the pope said he was not talking about a war of religion, but rather one of domination of peoples and economic interests. Yahoo News
This is the same approach that the US president is taking. Obama, like the Pope sees there is a problem but fails to point to the problem. Obama has persistently refused to tag ISIS attacks as religiously motivated.
But dear friend do you see where these people are leading us? Before the death of Christ, war was always only politically motivated. After the death of Christ, Lucifer decided to explore a religious war. Since the dark ages, Religion became the only reason millions of people were horrifically burnt at stakes.
These persecutions, beginning under Nero about the time of the martyrdom of Paul, continued with greater or less fury for centuries. Christians were falsely accused of the most dreadful crimes and declared to be the cause of great calamities–famine, pestilence, and earthquake. As they became the objects of popular hatred and suspicion, informers stood ready, for the sake of gain, to betray the innocent. They were condemned as rebels against the empire, as foes of religion, and pests to society. Great numbers were thrown to wild beasts or burned alive in the amphitheaters. Some were crucified; others were covered with the skins of wild animals and thrust into the arena to be torn by dogs. Their punishment was often made the chief entertainment at public fetes. Vast multitudes assembled to enjoy the sight and greeted their dying agonies with laughter and applause. Persecution in the First Centuries, The Great Controversy, Ellen White.
Is it funny that in just few years, we have turned full circle from Rome directly doing the killings to now using Islam to do the killings and the Pope comes to say ‘Religion has nothing to do with it?’
