Pope Francis: You cannot be saved without the church or Mary
Advent Messenger | Editorial
Pope Francis has spoken clearly on his world view of Christianity. He stated in a recent sermon on June 25th in Rome, that one must be part of the Catholic Church and pray to the Virgin Mary in order to be a true Christian. Finally, the pope's agenda has come to light.
Pope Francis' message is also his vision for the future of the world. A world in which all global power and faith resides upon him as the head of the universal church for the new world order. He is on a mission to fulfill Bible propecy.
"And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast." Revelation 17:12, 13.
In his own words, look at what the pope said:
"No one becomes Christian on his or her own! Is that clear? No one becomes Christian by him- or herself. Christians are not made in a laboratory. A Christian is part of a people who comes from afar. The Christian belongs to a people called the Church and this Church is what makes him or her Christian, on the day of Baptism, and then in the course of catechesis, and so on. But no one, no one becomes Christian on his or her own. If we believe, if we know how to pray, if we acknowledge the Lord and can listen to his Word, if we feel him close to us and recognize him in our brothers and sisters, it is because others, before us, lived the faith and then transmitted it to us. We have received the faith from our fathers, from our ancestors, and they have instructed us in it. If we think about it carefully, who knows how many beloved faces pass before our eyes at this moment: it could be the face of our parents who requested our Baptism; that of our grandparents or of some family member who taught us how to make the sign of the Cross and to recite our first prayers."
Becoming a Christian is the most important decision you will make in this life. But we don't become Christians by joining a church and following man made rules. We become a Christian when we give are hearts and lives to Christ and when we follow Him. We must read the Bible and not the catechesis or Catholic Catechism. We must accept the death of Christ as our substitute and plead His atoning sacrifice for us. Nowhere are we told to pray for the intersession of Mary. Yet Pope Francis tells us to call upon Mary.
"Dear friends, let us ask the Lord, through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church, for the grace never to fall into the temptation of thinking we can make it without the others, that we can get along without the Church, that we can save ourselves on our own, of being Christians from the laboratory. On the contrary, you cannot love God without loving your brothers, you cannot love God outside of the Church; you cannot be in communion with God without being so in the Church, and we cannot be good Christians if we are not together with those who seek to follow the Lord Jesus, as one single people, one single body, and this is the Church. "
This is the bottom line and the end result of Pope Francis message. He want's the Catholic church to have world dominion over everyone else. The sad news is that people are buying into this agenda. The world sees and amazing "man" who is bringing peace and unity among all the nations and religions. But this unity is not based upon the truth of the Bible, with Jesus as our only mediator. It's based upon the man-made inventions of Roman Catholicism and has as the foundation the Virgin Mary as the mediator.
May God open our eyes and may we embrace Him alone. May we hold fast to His the precious truths found in His word and may we forever reject the doctrines of demons that make of none effect the truths of God.
