We are one, but we want every one to be under the authority and teachings of the only true church ; the roman catholic church : Pope Declares in Heartfelt Message to Pentecostals











Pope Francis sent a video message to a gathering of U.S. Pentecostal leaders, voicing his “yearning” that separation between Catholics and other Christians may end.

“We have a lot of cultural riches and religious riches. And we have diverse traditions,” he said. “But we have to encounter one another as brothers. Let’s give each other a spiritual embrace and let God complete the work that he has begun,” he said, adding that “the miracle of unity has begun. “He will complete this miracle of unity,” the Holy Father said.

Pope Francis’ message was delivered to a meeting of the Fort Worth, Texas-based Kenneth Copeland Ministries by Pentecostal Bishop Tony Palmer, who had recorded it on an iPhone in a Jan. 14 meeting with the Holy Father. Palmer knew Pope Francis from his time in Argentina, when he was archbishop of Buenos Aires. The video was later uploaded to YouTube. The Pope described Palmer as “my brother,” saying the two have been “friends for years.”

“I am speaking to you as a brother ... with joy and yearning,” the Pope continued. “It gives me joy that you have come together to worship Jesus Christ the only Lord and to pray to the Father and to receive the Spirit,” he said. “This brings me joy because we can see that God is working all over the world.”

“We are kind of … permit me to say, separated,” the Pope said. “It’s sin that has separated us, all our sins, the misunderstandings throughout history. It has been a long road of sins that we all shared in. Who is to blame?”

February 21 - Pope Francis and the Future of Charismatic Christianity
Article: One World Religion
 









A recent meeting of ministers associated with the prosperity-preaching Word of Faith branch of charismatic Christianity received a surprise announcement: Pope Francis had sent a message to the conference. It was something of a historic moment.

Beginning around the thirty-minute mark of the above video, Francis speaks in Italian and English subtitles are provided at the bottom. As part of his greeting, the pope chose to highlight two themes, his joy at their desire to worship together in prayer to the Father for the Spirit to come and his yearning for Christians to become one again.

Francis described the current state of Christianity as one of separated families, by which he meant both biological families and the family of God. It was not lost on the Holy Father that the fractures in Christianity are also fractures between individuals. He asks, “Who is to blame for this separation?” and answers, “We all share the blame. We have all sinned.” Such a statement expresses the fraternity Francis wishes to restore, nothing more, nothing less. He went on to say that his desire is for this separation to end and a communion to begin again.

Francis referenced the reunion between Joseph and his brothers in Egypt. While the brothers journeyed to Egypt to buy food, they in fact discovered a long lost family member. Such a serendipitous union is what Francis desires. He then said that both groups have great cultural riches, religious riches, and diverse traditions, “but we have to encounter one another as brothers. We must cry together like Joseph did. These tears will unite us. The tears of love.”

He concluded his greeting by saying that he was speaking to the group of ministers as a brother and in a simple manner. His desire was that through the joy of proclaiming Jesus Christ as the Lord of history, a desire to embrace one another as family might grow. He then told the audience to pray for him as a way of giving one another a spiritual embrace. When the greeting concluded charismatic minister Kenneth Copeland, who was hosting the conference, took the stage and led the conference in a prayer for Pope Francis.

That the pope would say this to a group of charismatic ministers in the United States is significant, all the more so since a pope who identifies so much with Il Poverello, Francis of Assisi, was speaking to a branch of the charismatic movement that emphasizes prosperity.

It seems to me that Francis models for us how dialogue can move forward. It must begin with a mutual embrace that refuses to give in to stereotypes about the other. Yes, there are clear doctrinal differences, which Francis does not deny. His greeting, however, suggests that the hard task of finding common ground begins with calling one another brother and sister. Francis did not rush to offer a theological critique of the prosperity gospel although he certainly could have. Instead, he presented the option of moving closer theologically by mutual recognition and embrace. I have been privileged to do just that through Evangelicals and Catholics Together and Francis has invited all of us to do the same.

When people wonder why Evangelicals embrace Francis, they fail to see that Jorge Bergoglio had been connecting with evangelicals through the charismatic movement for quite some time. This greeting resulted from a relationship that Pope Francis has had with the broader charismatic movement in general and Tony Palmer in particular, who facilitated the connection. Tony Palmer’s vision to bring Christians together merged with Pope Francis’ vision to make this greeting possible. My own colleague at Regent, Vinson Synan has had more than one audience with Archbishop Bergoglio.

There is a way forward together. It’s not easy. But it may just be that we need a man who embodies the spirit of Francis of Assisi. Who will make the surprising moves of crossing lines to speak just as Francis of Assisi did when he broke through the crusader soldiers to speak to the caliph, Malik-al-Kamil. Once again Pope Francis has pointed us toward a future bright with possibility.

February 24 - Pope: "An absurdity to love Christ without the Church, to feel Christ but not the Church"


Article: Roman Catholic Church And The Last Days

It is "absurdity to love Christ without the Church, to feel Christ but not the Church", Pope Francis reiterated during the mass celebrated at Casa Santa Marta, pointing out that following Jesus is not an "idea " but a "constant abiding at home", the Church , where Christ always welcomes everyone, even if they are distant.

"Because Jesus did not only come from Heaven. He is the Son of a People. Jesus is the promise made to that People, which, beginning with Abraham, made its way toward the promise. These gestures of Jesus teach us that every healing, every [act of] pardon, always helps us return to our People, which is the Church".

Jesus always forgives, and his acts [of forgiveness] become "revolutionary" or "inexplicable" when they reach those who [seem to us to be too far gone], like Matthew the tax collector or his colleague, Zacchaeus. Christ's healing acts always lead people "home" - and thus it is impossible to understand Jesus without the People of God. "It is," he said, "an absurdity to love Christ without the Church, to feel Christ but not the Church, to follow Christ from the outskirts of the Church." "Christ and the Church are united," he said. "Whenever Christ calls a person, He brings that person to the Church." For this, said Pope Francis, "it is good [that a child] "come to be baptized in Church - Mother Church".

"And these, Jesus' gestures of so much tenderness make us realize this: that our doctrine, let us say, or our following Christ, is not an idea. It is a constant abiding at home - and though each of us has the opportunity and the real experience of leaving home for a sin, a mistake - God knows - salvation [means] going home with Jesus in the Church. These are gestures of tenderness. One by one, the Lord is calling us as well, to His people, into His family, our mother, the Holy Church. Let us think on these acts of Jesus".

Roman Catholics parade a boneless skull in France

, , , , ,
Saint Ivo of Kermartin was canonized in June 1347 A.D. The Roman Catholic faithful parades his skull. The bones of the saint have gone missing.

Walking around in female dresses, Roman Catholic priests parade a skull through a street in France.
Saint Ivo of Kermartin (17 October 1253 Р19 May 1303), also known Yvo or Ives, as Erwann (in Breton) and as Yves H̩lory (also Helori or Heloury in French), was a parish priest among the poor of Louannec, the only one of his station to be canonized in the Middle Ages.
He is the patron of Brittany, lawyers, and abandoned children. His feast day is May 19. Poetically, he is referred to as “Advocate of the Poor.”
Ivo was canonized in June 1347 by Clement VI at the urging of Philip I, Duke of Burgundy.

My comment:
Christians who have been persecuted by Rome, have possibly been puzzled by where the root of evil is to be found in this religious movement.
The theology of the Roman Catholic Religion is so not biblical, that the absence of the Holy Spirit will be total.
When the Holy Spirit rejects this Church, religious spirits will take over. Now the most insane and perverse manifestation can take place.
When you look at educated man parading a skull on their shoulders, religious perversion has reached the nadir. The lowest thinkable level. Take a look at these pictures:

There is no explanation why the skull is kept in a golden box. May be the priests are scared of theft?

Not only priest, but also laymen parades the skull through the streets.

The Roman Catholic priests are not alone. Faithful followers of the Pope turn up in their hundreds.

The skull is kept safely inside the Church in France.

Catholics light candle’s and worship in front of the skull. Do they really think the skull can see them?
We have earlier published on this blog, that the bones of this “saint” have gone missing, and were most likely taken to Rome as a part a beautification process. Based on this disconnection of the skull from its bones, we can easily be lead to ask the following question:

Educated Catholic “nobel men” mocking God, and make Him their very enemy.
Are these Roman Catholic priest taking the skull for a stroll, in a bid to find the lost bones?
What else can be a valid motive, for this kind of public parade of rather insane religious people?
Psalm 1:1
Blessed is the one
   who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
   or sit in the company of mockers.
May every Christian be given the power of the Holy Spirit, to stay away from such assemblies of the wicked.
