Amid all the controversy in the media today you will find plenty of opinions about the Pope’s words and actions. The best way to answer the question asked here is an in-depth analysis, in that manner, and append those things, either right or wrong, using scriptures from the Bible. Can the Pope be portrayed as embracing God’s enemies? Yes. Can the Pope be portrayed as a leader that is given to worldly and sinful ways? Yes. Let’s examine the truth.
In recent days, the Pope has continuously bashed Donald Trump on the border wall issue. The Pope proclaims that walls make the people inside the walls, prisoners. However, hypocrisy can be seen in the fact that the Vatican walls are 39 feet high and in some places 6 feet thick. Why were the Vatican walls built in the first place? To keep pirates out. Seriously. Yet it seems the Pope has placed himself and the Vatican to a higher level than all others. The Vatican is a nation in all legal terms.
The Pope claims that walls go against God. But if we take a look at what the Bible says we get a different view of the matter. His recent comment, ‘Builders of walls, be they made of razor wire or bricks, will end up becoming prisoners of the walls they build.‘ The Pope has, in his words and actions, appended his own view on the matter of borders and walls, falsely leading people to believe that such things are not biblical. However, by simply going to the Bible and taking a closer look, we see a number of truths that have evaded the Pope and many others.
; Obey the government, for God is the one who has put it there. There is no government anywhere that God has not placed in power. 2, So those who refuse to obey the laws of the land are refusing to obey God, and punishment will follow. 3 For the policeman does not frighten people who are doing right; but those doing evil will always fear him. So if you don’t want to be afraid, keep the laws and you will get along well. 4 The policeman is sent by God to help you. But if you are doing something wrong, of course you should be afraid, for he will have you punished. He is sent by God for that very purpose. 5 Obey the laws, then, for two reasons: first, to keep from being punished, and second, just because you know you should.
6 Pay your taxes too, for these same two reasons. For government workers need to be paid so that they can keep on doing God’s work, serving you. 7 Pay everyone whatever he ought to have: pay your taxes and import duties gladly, obey those over you, and give honor and respect to all those to whom it is due.
8 Pay all your debts except the debt of love for others—never finish paying that! For if you love them, you will be obeying all of God’s laws, fulfilling all his requirements. 9 If you love your neighbor as much as you love yourself you will not want to harm or cheat him, or kill him or steal from him. And you won’t sin with his wife or want what is his, or do anything else the Ten Commandments say is wrong. All ten are wrapped up in this one, to love your neighbor as you love yourself. 10 Love does no wrong to anyone. That’s why it fully satisfies all of God’s requirements. It is the only law you need.”
By looking at the scriptures here we see that people are supposed to obey the law of the land in which they reside. Furthermore, even God’s chosen, throughout the entire Bible, at one time or another had walls for the sole purpose of defense. (Vatican walls were built for that very reason.) And in the case of the United States, the need for the United States’ proper defense is clearly seen. The number of illegal immigrants staying in the United States without yet becoming a US citizen is 66% of all those that came here.
The declining overall number of unauthorized immigrants is due mainly to a very large drop in the number of new unauthorized immigrants, especially Mexicans, coming into the country. Consequently, today’s unauthorized immigrant population includes a smaller share of recent arrivals, especially from Mexico, than a decade earlier. Increasingly unauthorized immigrants are likely to be long-term U.S. residents: Two-thirds of adult unauthorized immigrants have lived in the country for more than 10 years.
As overall numbers declined, other related changes occurred in the unauthorized immigrant population. Between 2007 and 2016, the number of unauthorized immigrant workers fell, as did their share of the total U.S. workforce over the same period. So did the number of unauthorized immigrant men in the prime working ages of 18 to 44, but not women in that age group.
As their typical span of U.S. residence has grown, a rising share of unauthorized immigrant adults – 43% in 2016 compared with 32% in 2007 – live in households with U.S.-born children. This is a large percentage of illegal immigrants deciding to stay in the United States with no intentions of becoming a legal citizen, and those who are paying their taxes, as instructed in the scriptures above, are the ones burdened with paying the illegal immigrants share.
It’s a proven fact that no nation can survive with open borders. And if we all have open borders, then we all find ourselves under one government rule, hence a “one world government.” These terms are biblically and expressly forbidden. There is a reason God made nation’s and we now stand with a better view of the truth.
In recent days we have watched and heard the Pope call Muslims and other religious organizations, his, “brothers and sisters.” Anyone who has an acute knowledge of the Holy Bible would dispute these words from the Pope’s tongue.
First; Jesus refers to a brother or sister as those who are His, and not those of false god’s. (Other than Yahweh.)
2 Corinthians 6:14
“Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?”
2 Chronicles 19:1-2
“Jehoshaphat the king of Judah returned in safety to his house in Jerusalem. But Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him and said to King Jehoshaphat, “Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the Lord? Because of this, wrath has gone out against you from the Lord.”
“You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you suppose it is to no purpose that the Scripture says, “He yearns jealously over the spirit that he has made to dwell in us”?
So we see here what is commanded of not only the Pope, but every believer in Christ Jesus.
; a personal opponent of Christ expected to appear before the end of the world.
“the battle between Christ and the Antichrist”
; a person or force seen as opposing Christ or the Christian Church.
,plural noun: Antichrists
“St. Paul really did have to fear for his life at the hands of an Antichrist named Nero”
According to the Bible, anyone that believes in anything other than Jesus being the only way to heaven, is the anti-christ in general terms. That certainly isn’t to say that some of God’s enemies aren’t more powerful than others, either. It’s no secret that most Christians in the world consider Islam as false and a sure threat. It’s also a proven fact that Islam is the number one perpetrator of all attacks against Christian’s. So is Islam a force that the Pope should be joining hands with?
Now, let’s switch to another highly debated topic, and get both the Pope’s view on the matter, and God’s commands on the matter.
HOMOSEXUALITY: Currently, around the globe, more and more Christian’s are giving way to the homosexual movement, one that has inundated vast parts of the world in the last few years. Between 70% and 80% of all Christian’s believe, or have accepted that homosexuality is not necessarily a sin. However, the Bible tells us a totally different story. Pope Francis, elected in 2013, has repeatedly spoken about the need for the Catholic Church to welcome and love all people regardless of sexual orientation. Speaking about gay people in 2013, he said, “the key is for the church to welcome, not exclude and show mercy, not condemnation.” He said, “If a person is gay and seeks God and has good will, who am I to judge? The problem,” he continued, “is not having this orientation. We must be brothers.” The pope has reiterated the Catholic Church’s teaching on homosexuality, including its position on marriage. He has also been outspoken on the need to be compassionate towards LGBT people, and was named the Person of the Year by the LGBT magazine The Advocate. In 2019, Pope Francis reiterated that Catholic teaching states that homosexual tendencies “are not a sin.” (Source: Wikipedia)
And as we see here, the Bible fully contradicts these lies. Which makes me think the Pope really doesn’t know scriptures as he should.
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
Notice God, at some point hands them over to a reprobate or debased mind. Left alone to destroy themselves with no intervention from Him. Is this not final judgement. And why hasn’t the Pope, and other Christian leaders denounced this sin against the very image of God? Because the end draws ever near and these things you read here were prophesied and must come to be. The unseen danger’s of the Pope’s disregard for following scripture, as instructed by God, is the fact that 1.3 billion people follow him, at least to some degree. Which begs the question; just how crowded will hell be?
A true Christian leader will have extensive knowledge of the Bible, and all other related materials concerning the Bible, it’s teachings, and will readily be able to discern these topics. If any Christian leader shows themself as moving away from God’s exact Words, get away from them. God bless you.
