“I feel close to those people who do not recognize themselves in any faith but are in a search for truth, for goodness and for beauty, which is God.”
These are the words of Pope Francis on Wednesday. He called for “friendship and respect” among all faiths at a meeting with representatives of major world religions in the Vatican.
The Roman Catholic Church would “promote friendship and respect between men and women of different religions,” the pope said, a day after his formal inauguration in St Peter’s Square.
“We can do a lot for the good of people who are poor, who are weak, who suffer… and to promote reconciliation and peace,” the pope told them.
Representatives of Orthodox Christianity, Judaism and Islam were among those present at the meeting.
Latin America’s first pontiff said they should be united against “one of the most dangerous pitfalls of our time — reducing human beings to what they produce and what they consume.”
The Argentine pope also said he felt “close” to those people who “do not recognize themselves in any faith but are in a search for truth, for goodness and for beauty, which is God.”
Turning again to religious community leaders, he said: “I very much appreciate your presence and I see in it a sign of mutual respect and of cooperation for the common good of humanity.”
Francis also assured Christians from other denominations of his “firm will to continue with the path of ecumenical dialogue”.
He also told Jewish leaders he wanted to continue “a fraternal dialogue” that began with the reformist Second Vatican Council of the 1960s.
Not so strange: In all interfaith gatherings, the word “god” appears in almost every speech. But the name of Jesus is hardly mentioned. The blood of Jesus is totally deleted, the only remedy for sin there is.
The Pope follows his “christ”, who do not mind being mingled into all kinds of religious settings. The Argentinian Pope also feel “close” to people who have no faith at all, but are searching for “god”.
I guess birds of the same feathers, flocks together.
The Bible have been available for 3.000 years, and can be read by anyone. God hates sin, but loves sinners who surrender to Jesus the Messiah.
The “Christ” of the Pope do not demand repentance from sins, but rather represent a “god of goodness and beauty”.
Such a universal “god” is not God of the Bible. It is no “god” at all, put a product of humanism, traditions and doctrines taught by demons.
If you fall into this kind of trap set by the Papacy, you will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
Please keep in mind that Jesus the Messiah will tell a lot of religious people. “Away from me, you who are cursed”. They will depart Into the eternal fire, of Hell, prepared for the devil and his angels.
You can be sure that the judgement of all God-mockers will be fair and just.
Repent or perish.
