Someone asked me on Facebook what I think was a very sincere question. They wanted to know what the Pope has said thus far while in the US that is contrary to the Bible. Here is a partial list just off the top of my head. I would ask you to add to the list and let us see how much we can come up with together. Here is my quick list of what he has said or his actions, and ceremonies have promoted:
:rolleyes: Just another excellent reason not to waste time on social media like that.
*He lets people call him his holiness but he is not holy but a sinful man
How do you know whether Pope Francis is holy or not. You don’t even know the man. I would say that on his worst day he better exemplifies holiness than most people I know…and if study of scripture, a life of prayer, and shepherding service to Christians is any measure then…
*He holds up a cross with Christ on it but Christ is not on the cross
1st Corinthians 2: For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.
*Most every Catholic altar has a relic such as a bone from someone they call a saint. The priest will kiss the altar that contains the relic. This is total paganism
Show me this in pagan practice…and since relics have been venerated (not ever worshiped) since the early church this is wrong how? Nowhere does the Bible condemn or even mention this… See also Is Catholicism Pagan? and Relics
*He called down his false christ and commanded him to get into the wafer known as transubstantiation when he held mass in DC and will do the same in NY and Philadelphia.
Nothing more than typical anti-Catholic ignorant polemics. See The Institution of the Mass
*He promotes the false doctrine that the Catholic Mass can forgive your sins
Again gross ignorance…how can anyone trust someone who doesn’t know what he’s talking about?
*He holds up the Eucharist for people to worship which is idolatry
*He was preaching global warming but 2 Peter 3:10 says God will be the one that destroys the earth by real global warming
Oh please…Try to focus on a real religious issue. But I don’t see you or anyone else among you n-Cs preaching about our Biblical mandate to take care of our common home.
See Pope Francis’s Environmental Encyclical: 13 Things to Know and Share
*He has been preaching social justice which is socialism which is in direct contradiction to Biblical teaching on coveting and stealing
Hogwash…Nowhere has Pope Francis said squat about socialism…and social justice is a valid part of Christianity.
From this weekends liturgy
Reading 2 Jas 5:1-6
*** Come now, you rich, weep and wail over your impending miseries.
Your wealth has rotted away, your clothes have become moth-eaten,
your gold and silver have corroded,
and that corrosion will be a testimony against you;
it will devour your flesh like a fire.
You have stored up treasure for the last days.
Behold, the wages you withheld from the workers
who harvested your fields are crying aloud;
and the cries of the harvesters
have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts.
You have lived on earth in luxury and pleasure;
you have fattened your hearts for the day of slaughter.
You have condemned;
you have murdered the righteous one;
he offers you no resistance.***
