thing you have to say about this Pope, he's honest. At least he doesn't
hide behind political correctness, he just says it the way he sees it.
By the way, you can read an article on this
The problem with this
thinking is the Pope put's himself and the Catholic church above
scripture and above God Himself. Nowhere in the Bible does Christ or the
Apostles ever tell us that we have to be part of a certain group of
The Bible from cover to
cover tells us that if we're in Christ we are a new creation and we
belong to the family of God period. The Christians of the first century
met in homes, under ground, in catacombs, just about anywhere they could
to assemble and practice their faith in Christ.
I'm personally really
disappointed in this Popes assertion that because I am not a Catholic,
because I am a Jewish believer in Christ, I'm some how flawed in my
faith and in my worship to God. Sadly, the Pope is dialing back the
Catholic Church to era of the Spanish Inquisition period. Here's what I
mean by that. During the Inquisition if Jews were forced by the promise
of death, usually beheading, that if they didn't convert to Catholicism
they would be killed, them and their families. Millions of Jews were
either slaughtered of sent out to sea with no food and water to die,
thanks to Christian love of the Catholic church and it's evil
leadership. Okay, so the Pope isn't going to demand conversion or you
die, but he is going to draw a distinction between you and me and all
Beware of anyone who says
they or their organization is the only real or true place for you
to be. This mentality is very dangerous and has in the past led
to death and destruction. Just look back in history at things like the
Spanish Inquisition that I have already cited and then look back at the
Holocaust. Hitler led an entire country to believe that they were the
only true race that deserved to live and prosper. Only God has all the
answers and He accepts everyone right were they're at. God through
Christ is the only true path to salvation - not a church, not a
building and most definitely not any man or religion!
As disturbing as this may
be, those of us who understand End-time Prophecy should not be shocked
by this. This is part and parcel of the things that must happen before
the Lord can return.
1 Timothy 4:1-5
I wonder if the Antichrist
will use this distinction against all who are not Catholics during the
Tribulation period? Are we seeing another sign that the stage is being
set for the coming rule of the Antichrist?
I'll conclude with this simple and very
powerful quote from our Lord - Jesus Christ:
And as Moses
lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be
lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish
but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave
His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not
perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the
world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be
saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does
not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the
name of the only begotten Son of God.
Because, in truth, because they have misled my people, saying, "Peace,"
when there is no peace; and because, when the people build a wall, these
prophets smear whitewash on it. Say to those who smear whitewash on it
that it shall fall.
