Do Pope Francis's Remarks Have Prophetic Implications?

Written by Mike Gendron 
As Christ is calling His people out of the world with the truth of His Word, Satan is holding people captive with his lies. While Christ is preparing His bride for the wedding feast of the Lamb, Satan is using his harlot to gather all unbelievers together to worship the AntiChrist.
In a wide-ranging interview published Thursday from Jesuit journals, Pope Francis said the church is not to "interfere spiritually" in the lives of gays and lesbians. This comment comes after the explosive comments he made in July about not judging homosexuals. His motivation for such statements is not known, but he appears to be overly tolerant as he suppresses the truth of God's Word. Christians know the only hope for any unredeemed sinner, including homosexuals, is to be lovingly confronted with God's Word and then called to repentance and faith in the Gospel. For the pope to say the church is not to interfere spiritually in the lives of sinners is the same strategy of Satan. It is his goal to keep people from hearing the Word of Christ because he knows the truth with set them free from the power of sin and religious deception (Rom. 10:17John 8:31). By the way, this was the same reason the Catholic Church put the Bible on the list of forbidden books at the Council of Trent.
When asked if he approves of homosexuality, he replied, "Tell me, when God looks at a gay person, does he endorse the existence of this person with love, or reject and condemn this person?' This pope continues to show his ignorance of God's word. All sinners, including homosexuals are condemned by God until they repent and believe His Gospel. Only then is there legal status before the holy judge changed from condemnation to justification.
The pope said, "The dogmatic and moral teachings of the church are not all equivalent...We have to find a new balance; otherwise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards." Tragically, the false and fatal gospel of the Roman Catholic religion has no power to overcome the flagrant immorality of the unregenerate Catholic clergy and their followers. Quite frankly, I am surprised the Catholic church has not yet fallen like a house of cards. Catholics should be leaving their religion in droves as they witness the growing corruption and scandals of pedophile priests preying on young boys. Sadly, many Catholics ignore it all because of their fierce loyalty to what they believe is the "one true church" that will get them to heaven after they are purified in purgatory. This is a great time to evangelize Catholics since they don't know who or what to believe. We must point them to Christ and His Word for truth!
