The Pope’s Apostate Church there is so much wrong with the current pope’s theology, that where does one begin? First off, as a disclaimer, I am not Catholic, but the Bible does hold truths that spans beyond Denominational lines and this current pope has shown that he either has NO knowledge of Biblical theology or he’s proving that he’s an Apostate.
Whichever the case may be, what he’s spouting off as Biblical truth is nothing more than heretical apostate views, which are to be expected in the closing days of the Age of Grace as the false prophet comes onto the world’s scene.
Now I am not saying that this individual is that person. But, clearly, he is paving the way for him, for in the last days, the church will become an apostate church, aligning it’s self with global politics, and the anti-christ’s policies.
Even with-in this article we hear of the positions being taken towards that…the progressive version, (Marxist), of politics and Marxist Christianity, which is real popular in the South American counties. The reader might remember, that Obama’s pastor, Rev. Wright teaches this form of Marxist replacement Christianity. So where does one begin, in answering all the errors which this heretic pope is spouting? Let’s start at the beginning, and take them one at a time.
“Religious truth evolves and changes.”
No it doesn’t! Truth is truth, solid and factual. One takes it or leaves it.
One can either accept it or twist it to fit their agenda. Biblical truth and God, never changes. God is the same God today as He was at the beginning and the same as He will be in the end. One of God’s titles is Alpha and Omega, loosely translated, The Beginning and the End.
God never changes, and for us, that truly is a blessing, for if boundaries keep changing, we’ll never know where our relationship is with God.
Revelation 1:8 (KJV)
8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
2 Timothy 4:3-4 (NKJV)
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables for the great apostasy is coming.
“Even as Paul was writing these words some false teaching had already seeped into the church, and the future was not too bright. This is a prediction of Scripture; Paul was prophesying that the false teaching was to spread. The day was coming when apostasy was to sweep throughout the church. The idea is that the apostasy would be great—many would follow after the false teaching and the whole church would be affected.”
Matthew 24:35 (NKJV)
35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.
John 17:17 (NKJV)
17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.
As I mentioned earlier, there is only one truth, one right answer. A person can try to manipulate the answer, but is it the right answer?
Take common core, as an example, they try to fabricate Extra answers in order to make people feel good about their choice for an answer. Even if it’s wrong…..all the same, it’s still not the Right answer. It’s just a sugar coated wrong answer, or lie.
Next on the list of the popes theological errors:
“Through humility, soul searching, and prayerful contemplation we have gained a new understanding of certain dogmas. The church no longer believes in a literal hell where people suffer. This doctrine is incompatible with the infinite love of God. God is not a judge but a friend and a lover of humanity.”
Most first year theologians know the error of this theology going in. First of all, God is the source of all true love. God created hell as a place to put Satan and his hoard, not so much for people. But, those who’ll reject Jesus Christ will be considered as the likes of those fallen angels.
God is a righteous God. Who dispenses righteous justice and judgment, but, it won’t be God who places these folks in Hell. It’s the individual themselves who do this. How is this possible? One might be asking.
When an individual consciously rejects Real Truth, along with Jesus Christ who is Truth personified, they cast their selves into the lake of fire. Remember, God cannot allow sin to be in His presence, nor bear to even look upon it.
Matthew 25:41 (NKJV)
41 Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:
Here, Our Lord is separating the sheep from the goats.
Matthew 10:28 (NKJV)
28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
If hell doesn’t exist, then why do we read here, of Our Lord speaking of it?
Here Christ is saying, don’t fear the one who kills the body, but rather, fear the one who can kill / destroy the soul. Again, we hear the pope willingly “Tickling the Ears” of those who desire to change the truths of God’s word, to fit their agenda.
Next on our list of Errors:
“All religions are true, because they are true in the hearts of all those who believe in them. What other kind of truth is there? “
Again, a first year theologian knows this is of great error.
John 14:6-7 (NKJV)
6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. 7 “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”
the way to God is through Jesus Christ Himself. This is a critical verse, for Jesus said that no man could reach God unless he approached God through Jesus Himself.
The destination of Jesus was “the Father” Himself. The believer has the same destination: the believer’s destination is “the Father,” the One who so willingly and graciously adopted him into the family of God.
The only way to God is through salvation by Jesus Christ.
Acts 4:12 (NKJV)
12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
1 Timothy 2:3-6 (NKJV)
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time,
Second, there is only one God, not the many gods of men. If there were many gods, then there would be many ways to reach the heavens of the gods. But there are not many gods. Logically, there could not be many gods. When we speak of God, we mean the Infinite and Supreme Majesty of the Universe. There can be only one Supreme Being, only one Infinite Being. If there should be many gods, then they would not be infinite or supreme; therefore, they would not be God.
The point is this: since there is only one God, there can be only one way to reach Him—only one way to be saved.
There is only one mediator between God and men. Man must have a mediator if he is to be saved, if he is to approach God and be acceptable to God. As asked above, why? Because there is only one perfect Person: God Himself. No man can stand before God, not in his own name or righteousness. Man is imperfect, and God is perfect. Man cannot make himself acceptable to God no matter what he does. Imperfection is unacceptable to perfection. If perfection accepted imperfection, it would no longer be perfection. Perfection has to be just and righteous, which means that it has to reject imperfection. God cannot accept imperfect man. God has to be just and righteous and reject man in all the imperfection of his thoughts and behavior.
How, then, can man become acceptable to God? God has to make man acceptable. God Himself has to handle the sin, condemnation, and death of men. But how? There was only one way: God, the Perfect Person, had to become Man. God had to come to earth in such a way that man could understand Him and understand what He was doing. This He did by partaking of flesh and blood and coming to earth in the person of His Son, the Man Christ Jesus.
⇒ God Himself had to conquer sin. He had to live a perfect and sinless life as a man in order to handle sin. By living a perfect and sinless life, He became the Ideal and Perfect Man, the Ideal and Perfect Righteousness that could cover and stand for all men (Hebrews 2:14-15).
This is part of what is meant by Jesus Christ being our Mediator. He stands before God as the Perfect Man, and He also stands between God and men as the Perfect Man. He is the Ideal Pattern of all men, of just what a man should be. Therefore, when a man really believes in Jesus Christ…
- God takes that man’s belief and counts it as the righteousness of Jesus Christ.
- God accepts the man’s faith and honor in His Son as righteousness.
- God lets the righteousness of His Son, Jesus Christ, cover the man.
- God accepts the man’s faith as the righteousness of Jesus Christ.
Very simply stated, the man is not righteous, but God takes the man’s faith in His Son and credits his faith as righteousness. Jesus Christ stands as the Mediator between God and men; He stands as the Mediator of perfection and righteousness for man. The point is this: since there is only one Mediator, we must pray for men to come to know Him. And we must rush to proclaim Him to all men so that they can know about Him and have the opportunity to follow Him.
John 1:14 (NKJV)
14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
God sent His Son, Jesus Christ to share with Man, the way of salvation.
And to be the way for our salvation. Thus, being the truth personified.
Next on the list of Errors:
“God is changing and evolving as we are”
This is an example of socialist / Marxist theology. Or what is known as re-placement theology, which is running rampant in South American countries. This type of Christianity is also akin to pagan earth worship styles of manmade religions. The same folks are trying to apply this type of philosophy to our founding documents.
As mentioned earlier in this reply to the nonsense of the pope, God’s Word is timeless, as well as our founding documents. The only reason people want to change them, is because Gods’ word, and our founding documents won’t let them usher in their agenda.
In Jesus’ day the world seemed concrete, dependable, and permanent. These days many people fear its destruction by nuclear war. Jesus tells us, however, that even if the earth passes away, the truth of his words will never be changed or abolished. God and his Word provide the only stability in our unstable world. How shortsighted people are who spend their time learning about this temporary world and accumulating its possessions, while neglecting the Bible and its eternal truths!
Next on our list:
“The Bible is a beautiful holy book, but like all great and ancient works, some passages are outdated.”
The answer to this is in the previous statements…..
The next Error:
“The time has come to see these verses as later interpolations, contrary to the message of love and truth, which otherwise radiates through scripture.”
Men have twisted the meaning and intent of the writers of scriptures. By stating, “God’s word is in error, for some record different versions of the same events. So how can we take any of it as being correct?”
Well, it’s very simple to answer this, to where even the nay sayers could understand it, but would still deny the truth, due to their blindness and hate.
The reason some of what’s recorded in scripture varies slightly is due to when and where and when it was written. Some writers of scripture were first hand witnesses to the events recorded, whereas, others, interviewed those who were actually there. Some details will vary under these circumstances. If five people witnessed an accident, all five would have seen it from different perspectives, thusly, providing different observational details of the same event. Here again, all seeing the same event, but having noticed some details only available to their individual view point.
The implied error of the pope that scripture was doctored up doesn’t stand the test of time, as in the days of the events, if all the witnesses to Christ’s miracles. And all the witnesses to Christ’s teachings were lies.
Then they would have been debunked as such then and there. For there are more than enough enemies of scripture, then and now, to have been able to of accomplished the exposure of these events as being fairy tales, as they would have people to believe. The test of time has proven scripture to be true, accurate, and the living word of God. Why do I say it’s the living word of God? Because it’s the only book which can bring about change in one’s life. Also, Scripture is God breathed, which means, man recorded what the Holy Spirit, (God), instructed him to write.
If Satan and his hoard want to be really effective in their deception, they would try to destroy the word of God so people wouldn’t know the truth, nor would they recognize the lies.
“In addition to the Pope’s sweeping calls for tolerance and a new progressive understanding of Catholicism, he condemned racism, raising his voice and pounding the podium in front of him. Pope Francis spent over an hour castigating anti-immigrant politicians, parties and individuals.”
Here we see the insertion of politics into religion, which in some instances needs to be done. But what’s being laid out here is pure socialist/Marxism. These beliefs run contrary to real Christianity. I refer the reader to Pastor John Weavers’, “The Christian and Civil Government” parts 1-4, found on sermon audio dot com. The institution of authority is derived from God. But man has corrupted it, as he has done everything else.
Next on the Hit parade of Errors:
“We will consider excommunication for those whose souls willingly dwell in the darkness and evil of intolerance and racism.”
Here the pope is displaying the very thing which he condemns, that being discrimination. He’s willing to give away the farm to all. But those whom disagrees with him, he castigates; typical socialist/Alinski methods, thus proving his Marxist theology and politics.
In conclusion to the article, and to mine, an observation was made by an individual that reveals exactly where the pope, and his views are.
“The seat of Saint Peter is vacant. I am now a Sedevacantist. I should have become one long ago. The Vatican has embraced ecumenism in the past, but worse than that, it has now embraced moral relativism on abortion and homosexuality. At the same time it is embracing moral absolutism in favour of illegal immigration and cultural genocide against Europe.”
This observation is correct, for it identifies the present thinking, and position of the current pope as an anti-Christian, which is spouting, pure socialist clap trap, distorting the word of God, at the same time, interjecting Marxist political agendas.
As is recorded in scripture:
2 Timothy 4:3-4 (NKJV)
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.
This is exactly what scripture said would happen, and we’re witnessing it play out right before our eyes. What more proof does one need to believe that Jesus Christ is Lord, God is still on His throne, and all is coming to pass as is recorded in God’s word?
Every day, the world is proven wrong. And God’s word is Truth. Let the light of truth, which resides in you, be seen by all those around you. The work of God, working in your life, is the ultimate proof that God changes people’s lives, through Jesus Christ, His Holy Spirit, residing with-in the believer.
