Pope Francis sent a video message to a gathering of U.S. Pentecostal leaders, voicing his “yearning” that separation between Catholics and other Christians may end.
“We have a lot of cultural riches and religious riches. And we have diverse traditions,” he said. “But we have to encounter one another as brothers.”
“Let’s give each other a spiritual embrace and let God complete the work that He has begun,” he said, adding that “the miracle of unity has begun.”
The Pope quoted a character from Alessandro Manzoni’s novel “The Betrothed,” who says “I’ve never seen God begin a miracle without Him finishing it well.”
“He will complete this miracle of unity,” the Pope emphasized.
Pope Francis’ message was delivered to a meeting of the Fort Worth, Texas-based Kenneth Copeland Ministries by Pentecostal Bishop Tony Palmer, who had recorded it on an iPhone in a Jan. 14 meeting. Palmer knew the Pope from his time in Argentina when the pontiff was Archbishop of Buenos Aires. The video was later uploaded to YouTube.

Since Paul the Apostles warns us about “different” Jesus being presented to us, we can not automatically accept this invitation from the papacy.
Let us start with looking at the possibility that Jesus of the Bible and the “Jesus of the popes” are different.
1. Jesus of the Bible is the only mediator between God and man. You hall simply not go through others, but communicate with Him, only.
“Jesus” of Rome disagree. He is is need of his mom, to be able to fully catch all the prayers. And a couple of thousands other “saints” and Roman Catholic “madonna’s”.
As they communicate back from outer space: “Houston, we have a problem”.
2. Jesus of the Bible explains that God is spirit, and the true worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.
“Jesus” of Rome disagree. True worshipers must worship in flesh, and in the presence of idols made by stones or wood. If there is no idol present in the room, Roman Catholics do simply do not know that to do. They have been told that this simply can not be a “Church”.
3, Jesus of the Bible explains that the Holy Spirit is His replacement on Earth.
“Jesus” of Rome has no idea of this exclusivity of the Holy Spirit, but can only work perfectly through the Papacy. The Bishop of Rome has to be the head of the Church, if a perfect relationship with God and men shall be establish.
So the message back to the Pope is. Repent, and take a stand against all your blasphemies and sins. Than come back and who me fruits of repentance.
