Pope Francis has urged Christians and Muslims to work together to promote mutual respect, particularly by educating new generations of believers.
He greeted Muslims around the world during his Sunday blessing of pilgrims gathered in St Peter’s Square in Rome.
He said that “our brothers” the Muslims had just concluded their holy month of Ramadan, dedicated to fasting, prayer and alms-giving.
The Pope spoke from his studio window overlooking the square.

The One World religion is emerging, and the Pope is the leader of the flock.
The Vatican has for a long time embraced the Koran “as holy”, and “allah” as the god of love, unity, “god” of all. This “god” will unite all who worship and adore false Messiah’s, copies of Jesus of the Bible.
The “Jesus” according to Rome can tolerate and accept the version of “Jesus” that is taught in Mecca.
The Pope call Muslims for “brothers”. The Pontiff feel Catholics and Muslims are worshipers of the same “god”. In fact they are. But this “god” is not God of the Bible.
The Pope invites Muslims to “educate new generations of believers.” Surely the gospel shall no longer be preached.
No longer shall anyone teach that all men are lost, and can only be rescued and saved by the blood of Jesus.
No longer shall anyone proclaim the Messiah being the only atoning sacrifice for sins, and the only way to Heaven.
No longer shall any one say that God has a Son equal to Him self, who died on the cross at Calvary Hill in Jerusalem, and resurrected from the grave.
No longer shall anyone be permitted to say that without making Jesus the Messiah Lord and God, every man will have to spend eternity in Hell.
No longer shall anyone be permitted to say that the Koran is not a revelation from God, but inspired by demons.
No longer shall anyone be permitted to say that Muhammad is a false prophet.
If you do not understand that the Pope is an anti-Christ, you basically do not understand much about the nature of evil, also done in the name of “Jesus”.
Matthew 7: 21-23
‘Not everyone who says to me, “Lord, Lord,” will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?” Then I will tell them plainly, “I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!”

Reblogged this on God Bless America~~JESUS is our only Hope!! and commented:
That Pope is out of his mind!! The Devil Cult of Islam and Muslimes is NOT of GOD, it is of the Devil, Satan!! They are NOT our brothers or sisters!! I would NOT claim anyone as a brother or sister that follows satan and worships pedophiles, murderers, and barbarian savages!
IF POPE FRANCIS IS THEIR BROTHER, THEN HE TOO WORSHIPS SATAN!!
you are no better than those you call satan worshipers and barbarians,God is the only Judge,and until the judgement day you have no right to judge other peoples believes.may God save you from the intentions of your heart,and save you from hell fire.all you extremist from whatever faith will burn in hell,only God may have mercy on your souls.
Sir, i don’t have to be a Bilble expert to know someone is trying to play God.i may be ignorant of the what is written in the Bible,but as a father i know that i can’t have children and choose to condem,and divide them into different faiths so that they can hate and hurt each other in the name of being the choosen.the world will be a better place without Religion,thank you, i rest my case. World without end.
He lies pure and simple how long will those decieved people will wake up from sleep its not surprising to this Pope he Once said that Atheist when do good heaven is already for them to me this is the time where we gonna see the rise of apostacy
They have 68% of the population illiterate ,between women it reaches 80% ,let them educate them before having a dialogue with them .The Pope must reconsider after all we are Infidels in their religious laws.jalal
They consider a woman 1/2 a man how you are going to be able to tell them we are equal. Equality in their opinion is a taboo.Jalal
Well,it comes as NO surprise at all. The so called pope is ajesuit, and He may see the Muslims as brothers, but I doubt very much whether any True christians see it that way. The so called pope, does not speak for christianity at all. He is not christian.
Islam denies that jesus christ died on the cross.
So therefore No Christian could ever see muslims as brothers.
The vatican, it is quite clear,from Scripture, is
THE WHORE OF BABYLON !!!!
The roman cathjolic so called church, is a disgusting organisation, to say the least.
It is the most murderous,abusive,genocidal Cult, this planet has ever known.
They are the friend of no-one, and the enemy of all who do not wish to be partaker of her sins. THE WHORE OF BABYLON!!
see my wordpress…
I read Pope speech and don’t see anywhere there word ”brother”. what worries me is hostility present among Christians. you condemn Catholic Church for mistakes from past but now you do that same. It’s simply pitiful and sad to observe how Satan is growing division and hatred to each other.
I don’t hate roman catholics or muslims or you!!!
I will check this out further,and correct it if you are right..
I don’t hate you Mateusz…
I do hate False Doctrine though !!!!
Shalom, and love in Jesus.
God hates a lot of things. He hates sins, He hates divorces, He hates idolatry, He hates the teachings of the priesthood of hypocrites (the nicolaitains) and He hates rebellion. It was because of a rebellion, Lucifer was kicked out of Heaven.
God loves the truth enough, to send billions of people to Hell. God is just, and God is Holy. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. The Word became flesh, and walked on the face of the Earth.
God loves the World, in Jesus the Messiah. God do not love the World. It is a fallen place, where Satan and his children reigns. Simply because the gross majority within the human race, for the past 2.000 years have rejected the gospel, and chosen to have Satan as their Master.
Still some few of us, are longing for the Kingdom of Heaven, waiting for the Messiah to return. Trying our best to do the Fathers will in our lives, empowered by the Holy Spirit.
We desire that as many people as possible, wants to become a part of this rescue mission. If they do, they must renounce the evil of the Papacy, and stop following anti-Christs.
Thank you Ivarfjeld, I appreciate your comments very much.
I just wish there was a polite way,to tell someone that,they are following false doctrine.
There does not seem to be.?
I thank God for you brother…
Will communicate later. Its 5:30a.m here. 🙂
Shalom, and love in Jesus.
There is no nice way to tell about Hell. It is a horrific place, that needs to be explained and avoided. At any cost.
The fear of God (the creator of Hell) is the beginning of wisdom. The solution becomes obvious, for all who understand this. Jesus the Messiah is the only solution.
Forget about non believers: Today, hell is not even explained to “Christians”. Therefore, there is no fear of God, and no wisdom.
Well,I think IT will do a posting on Hell.
I put one on my website.
Search youtube ‘ pastor charles lawson,Hell’
My website is:-
The catholic church still teaches False and Demonic dogmas.
I cannot accept a roman catholic as a brother.
I politely suggest,that,you compare roman catholic dogmas,with the Doctrine of God,as given in Scripture.
Preferably a KING JAMES BIBLE. KJV
IGNORANCE IS WHAT IS DESTROYING OUR WORLD.THE BELIEVE THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO HAEVEN IS THE GREATEST BLASPHEMY OF ALL TIME,AND ONE OF THOSE POINT THAT IS DIVIDING MANKIND IN TO GROUPS OF FAITHS. DID GOD TALK TO YOU AND TOLD YOU THAT YOU WERE A TRUE CHRISTIAN? AND WHAT DOES THAT MEAN BEING A TRUE CHRISTIAN? WHEN YOU PONDER ON THOSE TWO QUESTIONS WITH OPEN MIND, YOU WILL COME TO UNDERSTAND HOW IGNORANT YOU HAVE BEEN ALL THESE YEARS IN THE PURSUIT OF YOUR FAITH. MAY GOD IN HIS INFINATE MERCY SAFE YOUR SOUL FROM HELL FIRE.
Jesus Christ himself said that there is only ‘ One Way ‘ to the Father.
12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. KJV
And so I take the words of Jesus Christ seriously.
I know that I am saved, because God’s Spirit, testifies with my spirit, that I am saved, and bought and paid for, by the Blood of The Lord Jesus Christ.
Also… Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
2 John 9-11 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
And going by the Scriptures, if anyoe teaches a so called doctrine, contrary to the Word of God, is NO christian,..and furthermore, anyone who follows false teaching, e.g. so called prayers to Mary, transubstantiation,Purgatory,denies that Jesus Christ is God/denies that Jesus Christ died on the cross, is of the devil and satan. !
and so I believe that you need to repent of your false teaching.. There is only ONE way to the Father, and that is through Jesus Christ, by his blood, and his saving grace, repentance, and acknowledgement that Jesus Christ is Lord and God, to the glory of the Father. One must be filled by/with the Holy Spirit to be ‘ sealed ‘ unto the day of Salvation.
Ephesians 4:4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
I suggest that you repent, and acknowledge your sin,..you have been misled, and really need to get your self saved, and leave those lies behind you.
I amopen minded, but NOT to the lies of satan, as you are expressing to me.
Are you a Catholic,Muslim or something..? I would genuinely like to know please.
Thank you for your comments, and have a nice day.
Sir with all due respect,all your quotations are from the Bible,which is not prouve that yours is the only way,even the Jews themselves do not believe in the Bible. so you can’t claim to have the answer to everything.how about the Hindous,the Budhist and all other people who believe in one way or the other? are you trying to tell me that you personally spoke with God and he told you that all those people were wrong and only you are on the right? my friend stop dreaming and please check with your dictionary the meaning of believe and stop making unfounded claims,thank you for trying,and don’t get me wrong, i respect your believe,it is your inalieanable right to believe what you believe in,but at the same time allow others the freedom to believe in what they believe,thank you.
My quotations are from the Bible, because the word of God is more reliable,than I or you are.
I have never made the claim that ‘ I have the answer to everything ‘, so please do not put words in my mouth, Thank You.
I have never seen God, literally face to face, your point, if you can call it that, is a tad childish.
Gods word is no dream, and I am certainly not dreaming, when I refer to Jesus Christ, as being the only means of Salvation.
1 Cor 3:11, 12:3
1 John 4:12
I believe that God is right, and I can only seek to follow God’s word, because the word of God is given by the Holy Spirit, and therefore anyone contradicting the plain teachings of scripture on the means of salvation, is NOT of God.
so Islam denies that Jesus Died on the cross. Buddhism denies resurrection, and propagates the lie of re-incarnation/transmigration of souls.
Catholics say they worship mary, which is contrary to the scriptures, and all sorts of other false teachings..that are of the devil and satan.
My claims, as you describe the, are not unfounded, they are soundly based on the Bible KJV.
Is someone is believing or propagating lies, then I believe that I should point it out to them.
thank you for your comments, and have a nice day.
I think you are misguided, and you evidently have NO knowledge of Scripture at all.
Perhaps you should re-evaluate your position, and seek the truth, rather than expressing the emotional and unedified things that you have said.??
please excuse minor typing errors 🙂
Catholicism : The Whore of Babylon
Islam : Is a Catholic invention !
He makes me sickly. I can’t believe how 1 billion Catholic’s have been brainwashed since childhood. I pray they will open their eyes and see! For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that who so ever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16. What does the anti-christ Pope have to do with salvation? Nothing! He is leading unsuspecting millions to hell. Hell is forever! Jesus paid it all!
“”Whoever causes one of these little ones, (true believers), who believe in Me, to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” Matthew 18:6. It should not be that anyone…believer or not…lead others into sin, directly or indirectly. One would be better off dead. And that includes the pope.
it seems that the world’s largest religion sees only the way to become even bigger…in the eyes of the world…..
“..but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come” Matth 24:13-14.
And if you want to read Pope Francis’ actual words you can find them here at the Vatican’s website.
“‘Not everyone who says to me, “Lord, Lord,” will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.”
Is “doing the will of the Father” reaching out in love to others or cultivating hatred for everyone who believes differently than you?
I think you may be misunderstanding the motivations of those who point out the errors of Islam, and yes, Catholicism. True Christians hate sin, but love the sinner and want them to come to salvation through repenting of their sins and belief in Jesus Christ as their Savior. The errors of any other doctrine that leads anyone away from the true gospel should be lovingly pointed out. It’s the loving and correct thing to do.
The religion of Islam acknowledges that Jesus existed. They just say that He will come back one day and proclaim that He is a follower of Allah. They say that Jesus was not the Son of God…He was just one of the foremost prophets of God and that He is a lesser prophet than Muhammad. They say Jesus did not die on the cross, but rather ascended directly into heaven and that Judas was crucified in His place. They say Jesus will be the executioner of those who reject Islam. I could go on and on about the errors of Islam, but, those facts alone should be sufficient to convince anyone to reject it.
Catholicism isn’t as bad as Islam. There are Catholics who I think are genuine Christians. However, the religion is full of contradictions with the Bible. They get around that by relying on their own Bible.
Catholics believe that justification begins with baptism. Christians believe that justification is by faith alone.
Catholics believe that adults must prepare for justification through faith and good works. Christians believe that God justifies ungodly sinners who believe. Good works are the RESULT of salvation, not the cause.
Catholics believe that initial justification through baptism is only the first step on a long road. If a Catholic hopes to one day enter the gates of heaven, he must diligently seek to increase and preserve grace in his soul. This is accomplished in a process called sanctification, the chief feature of which is participation in sacraments. Christians believe that those whom God justifies, He also glorifies.
Catholics believe that eternal life is a merited reward. Christians believe that eternal life is the free gift of God.
Catholics believe that salvation from the eternal consequences of sin is a lifelong process. Christians believe that salvation from the eternal consequences of sin is an instantaneous and secure act of God coinciding with justification.
Catholics believe that salvation is attained by cooperating with grace through faith, good works, and participation in the sacraments. Christians believe that salvation is attained by grace through faith apart from works. Again, good works are the result, not the cause, of salvation.
I should mention Mary. Catholics believe that we should entrust ourselves to Mary, surrendering “the hour of our death” wholly to her care. Christians believe that we should entrust ourselves to the Lord Jesus, surrendering the hour of our death wholly to His care.
I pray that God will open the eyes of Roman Catholics and followers of Islam. God wants no one to perish. God bless you.
You’ve been charitable with your approach and so I commend you for it. Since many prefer to quickly attack others who are in disagreement
I hope you don’t mind me taking this opportunity to enter more of a dialogue with you based on differences in Catholic and Protestant doctrine.
I’d like to begin with your statement: “Christians believe that justification is by faith alone.”
I am interested in hearing your response to this piece of scripture from James:2,24
“Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.” -KJV
Dear Splendor In Truth
Shalom, and love in Jesus.
James:2,24 “Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.” -KJV
First I am not a Roman Catholic, neither am I “a protestant”. I am a follower of Jesus the Messiah.
Second: I am not a follower of the “Lutheran religion”, still I understand this message from Martin Luther: Man is saved by faith, alone.
Since God of the Bible could use both Luther and a donkey to get His messages across, I am sure he can use me too. And you too.
Third: I can not be saved by my “good works”. I can only be saved by the atoning sacrifice done by Jesus my Lord, His sacrifice on the cross at Calvary Hill in Jerusalem. By His blood I am saved. Not by my own work, that amount to filthy rags in the eyes of God the Almighty.
Forth: I do my best to do “good works”. Not to be saved, but because I am saved. I am not saved by good works, but saved to do good works. If you love Jesus, you will not become lazy. Nor idle, aloof or lukewarm.
Those who do not understand this, do not listen to the gospel. Neither do they have any relationship with Jesus, through the messages you will get from the Holy Spirit.
I understand your interest in James 2:24. We sincerely seek to have peace and reconciliation with God. The devil would have us think otherwise, but at the cross of Christ, the death of the flesh and its power to reign over believers was accomplished (Rom. 6:1-14)…”For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.” (v.14). Christians must wait until their glorification before they are finally rid of their unredeemed humanness (Rom. 8:23), yet by accepting Jesus as their Savior and walking in the Spirit they can please God in this world.
James states in 2:18 that the only possible evidence of true faith is works. Only through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit are we able to persevere in that faith and obedience (works). Good works cannot produce salvation but are subsequent and resultant God-empowered fruits and evidences of it. Since every true Christian is indwelt by the Holy Spirit, every Christian will manifest the fruit He produces in their life, (Gal. 5:22,23). “We will know them by their fruits.” Matthew 7:16. We are thankful to understand that the genuine Christian is eternally secure in his salvation and will persevere and grow because he has received everything necessary to sustain eternal life through Christ’s power, and be able to manifest good works because of that power, throughout his eternal life.
The law reveals man’s sinfulness and need for the salvation freely offered in the promise. If the law could have provided righteousness and eternal life, there would be no gracious promise. “Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.” Gals. 3:24. That being said, we are still obligated to obey God’s holy and unchanging righteous standards which are now given authority in the New Covenant (Galatians 6:2; Romans 8:4; I Cor. 9:21). Thankfully, “being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ…” Philippians 1:6.
James 2:21-26 does not contradict Paul’s clear teaching that Abraham was justified before God by grace alone through faith alone (Rom. 3:20-26; 4:1-25; Gal. 3:6,11.) For several reasons, James cannot mean that Abraham was deemed righteous before God because of his own good works: 1) James already stressed that salvation is a gracious gift (1:17,18); 2) in the middle of James’ verses, (v.23), James quoted Gen. 15:6, which claims that God credited righteousness to Abraham solely on the basis of his faith; and 3) the work that James said justified Abraham was his offering up of Isaac, (Gen. 22:9,12), an event that occurred many years after he first exercised faith and was declared righteous before God (Gen. 12:1-7; 15:6). Instead, Abraham’s offering of Isaac demonstrated (proved) the genuineness of his faith and the reality of his justification before God. James is emphasizing the vindication (proof) before others of a man’s claim to salvation. James’ teaching perfectly complements Paul’s writings; salvation is determined by faith alone (Eph. 2:8,9) and demonstrated (proved) by faithfulness to obey God’s will alone (Eph. 2:10). (MacArthur)
Isn’t it interesting that these Bible studies lead from one topic to another topic to another topic, etc.? (I could have done a better job of making this not as confusing…I hope you could follow my thoughts). We Thank-God for His Holy Word. God bless you.
The things you both point out are interesting but I have trouble following your logic. If what you say is true, the there must be absolutely no possibility of losing salvation once you are saved right? Since your good works are supposed to come from your faith alone due to God’s grace alone.
And aside from the above, Catholics believe and teach that yes, we are absolutely reliant on solely God’s grace in order to enter the gates of heaven. To understand this further though we also believe in the total reality of the gift of free will. This means that we believe you can choose whether or not to believe in God and follow his commandments or you can choose the opposite.
Following this, we also believe it is possible to lose your salvation because of free will. In the sciptures (matthew 18:15-18) we’re told of the believer who was in sin and was refusing the counsels of those who were concerned. It is said that if they are brought before the church on account of this sin and still refuse repentance they should be cut off or anathema, and we should have nothing to do with them moving forward.
This is an example of a person who was following Christ, had accepted Him as Lord and Savior was a part of the church and had turned away from God. At some point then removed or cut off.
Splendor In Truth
Shalom, and love in Jesus.
The things you both point out are interesting but I have trouble following your logic. If what you say is true, the there must be absolutely no possibility of losing salvation once you are saved right?
Evangelical Christians at large believe man can walk away from faith, and renounce the salvation offered by Jesus the Messiah. We believe in the free will of man. For a man who have tasted the goodness of the Lord, being born again (re-birthed) by His Spirit, it is almost impossible to walk back into spiritual darkness. But only almost impossible.
To Splendor in the Truth: Jesus gave believers the authority to declare the judgment of heaven based on the principles of the Word. (John 20:23; Matthew 16:19). In Matthew 18:15-18, Christ lays out specific instructions for dealing with sin in the church. The goal of this process is restoration. If, after the church has gone through all the steps, he still refuses to repent, he must be excommunicated, regarded by the church as a “heathen and a tax collector”. The idea is not merely to punish the offender, or to shun him completely, but to remove him as a detrimental influence from the fellowship of the church, and henceforth to regard him as an evangelistic prospect rather than as a brother. Ultimately, the sin for which he is excommunicated is a hard-hearted impenitence. I think if that is the case that the man was never saved in the first place. Hence, treating him as an evangelistic prospect is proper.
FALSE PROPHET!!!!!!!!!!!! THE SECOND BEAST IS HERE!
Who are you talking to and what are you talking about?
