Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
Am sure you have read severally that the Pope has called Muslims our brothers and sisters in faith. According to the Pope we all worship the same God. Check our next article, we will highlight the 5 major things Pope Francis has said in the effort to unite all religions.
But is it just a craving for papa Francisco or does the Catholic Church have a need to be mother of all? Let us look at what some other Popes said;
n John Paul II’s book, he stated very clearly the following:
- The Catholic Church recognizes the true and holy aspects in all false religions [p. 46]
- Hinduism is another means of taking refuge in God [p. 46]
- Buddhism is a relgion of Salvation [p. 48]
- Islam worships the One True God [p. 52]
- The Holy Spirit is present in every religion [p. 47]
(See Pope John Paul II, Crossing the Threshold of Hope, 1994, ISBN: 0-679-76561-1)
The Catholic Church’s acceptance of multiple religions shows why it was so easy for the pope to accept evolutionism into their church as well:
“The Church’s magisterium is directly concerned with the question of evolution, for itinvolves the conception of man.”
-Address of Pope John Paul II, to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, Oct 22, 1996
Just so you know, Pope Francis too supports the Big Bang Theory. You can read about that here.
Some of you Christians reading this might be confused how a Catholic could draw these conclusions out of Scripture, but we need to understand that the Word of God is not the final authority for the Catholic Church. The POPE is their final authority. The Catholic Church has stated their position clearly:
“Thus it comes about that the Church does not draw her certainty about all revealed truths from the Holy Scriptures alone. Hence, both Scripture and Tradition must be accepted and honored with equal feelings of devotion and reverence…”
-Austin Flannery, Vatican Council II: The Conciliar and Post Conciliar Documents, 1988, p. 755, ISBN: 9780918344151; See also Jean M. Hiesberger, The Catholic Bible, Personal Study Edition, 2nd Edition, Oxford University Press, 2007, p. 21, ISBN: 9780195289268
If a Catholic is going to be true to their church, they must not accept the Bible as truth in all matters. Despite the warnings the Bible gives about the traditions of men, a Catholic must revere all traditions of their church.
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the traditions of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?
The Popes have been helping to bring about the prophecied One-World Religion of prophesied by the book of Revelation.
(Assisi, Italy, Oct 27, 1986, world religions gather to “pray for peace”)
THINK NOT THAT I AM COME TO SEND PEACE ON EARTH: I CAME NOT TO SEND PEACE, BUT A SWORD.
SUPPOSE YE THAT I AM COME TO GIVE PEACE ON EARTH? I TELL YOU, NAY; BUT RATHER DIVISION:
FOR WHEN THEY SHALL SAY, PEACE AND SAFETY; THEN SUDDEN DESTRUCTION COMETH UPON THEM, AS TRAVAIL UPON A WOMAN WITH CHILD; AND THEY SHALL NOT ESCAPE.
–1 THESSALONIANS 5:3
The “peace” they are trying to build is a false-peace under a false banner of lies. They are gathering the world together against God and against his annointed, which is why Jesus Christ said he came to bring division rather than peace; for us to be divided by a line where one side stands for the truth of God’s Word, and the other side seeks lust of the flesh guided by paganism.
These practices and beliefs defile the Church of Christ, gathering together the pagans of this world and falsely claim they worship the True Living God. Authority in the true Church of the Lord Jesus Christ comes only from the Word of God, and the pope throws aside the Word, thus he has no authority at all.
I cannot find any Biblical justification for anyone claiming to be a Christian to worship in a mosque, tell the Muslims they’re worshiping the same ‘god’, and then kiss the Qur’an. The popes of this world have little understand of the Word of God, and I pray the Lord Jesus Christ could use this article to help a Catholic that has a humble heart that wants to serve the Lord Jesus Christ.
The pope’s claim to be God in the flesh is absolute in the eyes of the Catholic Church. As a Catholic, if you were to go against this belief, you are anathema to them.
