Pope Francis offered another gesture to Catholics who are estranged from the church, saying he respects them but that God is waiting for them.
Francis made the comments after he celebrated Epiphany, a major Catholic feast day that recalls the visit to the infant Jesus Christ by three kings.
“I would like to tell all those who feel far from God and the church — and I say this respectfully to those who are afraid or indifferent: The Lord calls you and wants you to be part of his people and does so with great respect and love!” Francis said.
“The Lord doesn’t proselytize, he gives love and this love looks for you, waits for you — for you who don’t believe or have drifted away. This is the love of God.”
Francis has made a priority of reaching out to atheists and Catholics marginalized by their church, particularly gays. He has tasked priests, bishops and cardinals with going out to preach on the margins of society and not wait for the faithful to come back to the church.
Francis himself is leaving the Vatican on Monday to go visit a Rome church where parishioners are acting out Jesus’ nativity scene.
Claiming that God “do not proselyte”, is utter non biblical rubbish.
All Christians are called to walk in talk, and to make disciples. To call people to surrender their life to Jesus the Messiah, and make Him Lord and God in their life.
And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.
The Pope present a spineless, aloof and slumbering “god”, some kind of “Father Christmas”, which is only good. A “god” that is not concerned about sin and lawlessness, and not demanding repentance from a life in sin.
‘“These people honour me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.
People who listen to this kind of faithlessness in the name if Jesus, are basically not interested in the gospel. The Pope present to us a different “Jesus”, walks in a different spirit, and present to us a fake gospel, that is no gospel at all. Only a mixed soup of hallow philosophy and humanism.
For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.
The Pope is a liar and a deceiver of the flock. He gives you a copy-cat Messiah, who leads him and all his followers, towards the gates of Hell.
Repent or perish.
