Pope Francis says Catholic Church’s credibility at stake due to hypocrisy.
Francis spoke during the Mass at the Papal Basilica of St. Paul’s Outside the Walls in Rome on Sunday, stressing that inconsistency between what pastors and Christians preach and what they practice is undermining the Catholic Church’s credibility.
Peter and the Apostles proclaimed the Gospel of Jesus courageously and fearlessly, but “are we capable of bringing the word of God into the environment in which we live?” asked the pope, who inherited a Church plagued with a series of scandals, including sexual abuse of children by priests.
“Let us all remember this: one cannot proclaim the Gospel of Jesus without the tangible witness of one’s life,” Pope Francis said at St. Paul’s, one of Rome’s four major basilicas and the second largest after St. Peter’s. “Those who listen to us and observe us must be able to see in our actions what they hear from our lips, and so give glory to God!”
“Preaching with your life, with your witness. Inconsistency on the part of pastors and the faithful between what they say and what they do, between word and manner of life, is undermining the Church’s credibility,” said the pope, who spoke on proclamation, witness and worship.
Faith is born from listening, and is strengthened by proclamation, he said, adding that proclamation was not a mandate of the clergy alone. “We all have to proclaim and bear witness to the Gospel. We should all ask ourselves: How do I bear witness to Christ through my faith? Do I have the courage of Peter and the other Apostles, to think, to choose and to live as a Christian, obedient to God?”

First I must admit it is worth noticing a Pope admitting there is hypocrisy in his Church.
Still we have to discern this message from a Jesuit Pope, the first Jesuit Pope ever.
The Jesuits are permitted to sit on both side of the table. Some of them have received orders to operate as a spy in the enemy’s camp.
Many Jesuits have accepted not public orders from the Jesuit General in the Vatican, the so-called “Black Pope”. These orders gives them freedom to criticize the Roman Catholic Church, if its beneficial for the long term plan to gain global recognition of the “holy see”.
Please be aware, that to be able to mingle into Evangelical Christianity, the Jesuits will have to be critical of Rome. From the very foundation of the Jesuit order. the purpose of this new brotherhood of priests was to counter the reformers of the Church. A man like Martin Luther got them on his neck in 1534 A.D onwards. This was the year of the formation of “The society of Jesus”, a Roman Catholic brotherhood.
Their strategy was based on simple human wisdom: If you can not beat them, pretend to be one of them. The message to the Germans was: “Not only Luther have Jesus, we have him too”.
What we will see in our last days, is claimed to be converted Jesuit priests starting to convince even Pentecostal Churches, that this Pope is different and a possible New Reformer. We will be told that Francis the first, will be able to bridge the gap between Roman Catholics and “separated brethren”.
Do not fall into their spiritual trap.
A Jesuit Pope can not change the infallible doctrines of the Church. The Church will never admit that their theological foundation is the reason for the bad fruits its produces. A bad tree can simply not bear good fruits.
It will not come out of the mouth of any Pope, that the church is full of hypocrisy because of its false teachings and doctrines taught by demons.
The present Jesuit Pope can not change the doctrine that he is infallible in matters of interpretation of scriptures and instruction in moral issues. If so, this change will also be a matter of error, and cast the whole Roman Catholic Church into confusion and chaos.
Such a statement will be devastating, and raise the ultimate one million dollar question:
Can a Roman Catholic ever be sure that the Pope teach correctly?
The answer to this question is, to leave the Papacy alone. And rather proclaim the Bible, alone, to be the highest authority in matters of faith.
Lets read what Rome teachers about the infallibility of the Papacy.
CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
In order to preserve the Church in the purity of the faith handed on by the apostles, Christ who is the Truth willed to confer on her a share in his own infallibility. By a “supernatural sense of faith” the People of God, under the guidance of the Church’s living Magisterium, “unfailingly adheres to this faith.”417
“The Roman Pontiff, head of the college of bishops, enjoys this infallibility in virtue of his office, when, as supreme pastor and teacher of all the faithful – who confirms his brethren in the faith he proclaims by a definitive act a doctrine pertaining to faith or morals. . . . The infallibility promised to the Church is also present in the body of bishops when, together with Peter’s successor, they exercise the supreme Magisterium,” above all in an Ecumenical Council.418 When the Church through its supreme Magisterium proposes a doctrine “for belief as being divinely revealed,”419 and as the teaching of Christ, the definitions “must be adhered to with the obedience of faith.”420 This infallibility extends as far as the deposit of divine Revelation itself.421
Please read my lips:
The Vatican religious system will never change this false doctrine. It will be those who walk in unity with her, who will be forced to compromise, and make the Pope their infallible “god”. The very “Holy Father”.
The acceptance of he claimed authority of the Pope, is a rejection of, and sin against, the authority of the Holy Spirit. No created being is infallible. Only the Holy Spirit.
but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; they are guilty of an eternal sin.”
Those who indulge in blasphemy against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven. It is a hundred percent sure way into the fire of Hell.
