Pope calls Pentecostals “brothers”

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.

As log as the Pope kiss stone and wood and call it holy, he can never be called my brother.
As long as the Pope kiss stone and wood and call it holy, he can never be called my brother.

“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.

My comment:

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.

  1. My brothers are those who hear the Word of God and do it..
    That eliminates the Pope and his follefs and his doctrines and
    all his idols…his father was a liar from the beginning and therhas been
    Little change but whar the Lord Of Glory HIMSELF brought Truth
    To the people and the Popes burned them at the stake..But God
    Will and is having the last word…So Beware of all the lovey dovey
    Unity….Remember the old saying “if you love me you will do this…or if
    You are my friend,…If you love Jesus…They will use every piece
    of ‘Lie-Pie’ on Saint and Sinner because they are of Pawns of Satan
    and most don’t even know it.

    1. Well said Andrea, the pope now says that even athiests can be saved, I thought that popes could never be wrong, if this is the case ,not that long ago pope were burning Christians for believing in Jesus but just not believing in Him the RC way but now you don’t even have to believe in Jesus to be saved. The warm and fuzzy message is coming and the masses will run to it but the true message of the cross is foolishness to those whom are perishing but to those whom are being saved its the power of God. God calls us out of the world, to seperate ourselves and even if an angel preaches any other Gospel other than the one we have heard, let him be accursed. No pope, no false doctrine, no Saviour but Jesus. Amen.

      1. Tommy
        You said ” the pope says that now even atheist can be saved.
        My answer to that is yes they can. Even the editor of this blog
        Will agree with that as he was once a professing atheist, but God
        Saved even him. You may not want to agree with the pope but if he
        Said those words he is correct. God if he choose can and will save
        Anybody. In fact of the few proclaiming to once be an atheist
        I know that we’re saved by the grace of God have become great
        People of God

  2. Im always with you brother Ivar BUT Romans chapter 2 says you are no better than him so unity is good no matter how wrong his doctrines are. We are called to love him and not judge him. As hard as that is we must.

    1. “unity is good no matter how wrong his doctrines are.” ??????????????
      Your statement is illogical and un-biblical.
      Romans ch. 2 does not support it either. It’s almost funny how people can come to absurd ideas reading clear message in the bible.

    2. 1 Cor 2:15 He that is spiritual judges all things

      AJ, when you say we are called ‘not to judge’ what do you base that on? We are called to judge but I suspect the scripture you are refering to is the one using the greek word ‘hypo krines’ ( Greek has 5 different words for judging ) in other words we REMOVE the plank from our own eye THEN we remove the splinter from our neighbours, it is telling us not to judge hypocritically, namely judging someone for doing something we ourselves we do, we are to judge correctly, if non of us judge how do we expose false doctrine and wolves in sheeps clothing , ‘do not judge is satans smokescreen to hide all kinds of evil.

      Krino – eternal judgement, heaven or hell; only Christ can judge in this fashion.
      Hypo-krites – hypocritical judging; we are forbidden to do this
      Ana-krino – to discern
      Dia-krino – to decide
      Kritikos – to review critically, analyse

      Do not just read a verse, study it, examine it, we judge ever day and we are called to judge, Paul judged Peter.

      Those who are sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that the rest also may fear. 1 Timothy 5:20

      A ‘public’ example from Scripture. Galatians 2:11 “But when Peter came to Antioch, I withstood him to his face, because he was to be blamed.”

      Public exposure, as Ananias & Sapphira suffered for lies and falsehood, is for keeping the church holy, “And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things.” Acts 5: 1-11

    3. A.J, the Creator of Heaven & Earth calls all humans to be Holy unto Him., to be SET-APART for Him. The Holy Creator is Himself SET-APART and does not mix with pagans or paganism. But majority choose to walk in paganism.
      The UNITY that the pope is talking about is; ECUMENISM, the gathering of ignorant souls for a final holocaust in the lake of fire.
      The word Holocaust is derived from the Greek holokauston,a translation of the Hebrew word ʿolah’, meaning; a sacrifice by burning.

  3. I heard about this a few nights ago from a buddy of mine. I find this super bizarre. I think Pope Francis is Pope Petrus Romanus.

  4. The deceitfulness of the Roman Pope is difficult for most souls to discern, especially those that do not know history. The Pope knows the vocabulary of Christians and can smooth talk all the day long, but He doesn’t believe these words, “But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right and of God.” Heb. 10:12 Neither does the Pope believe these words, “For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.” Heb. 10:14 Finally, the Pope doesn’t believe these words, “Now where there is remission of these [sins], there IS NO LONGER AN OFFEREING FOR SIN.” Heb. 10:18.

    Don’t be deceived, the Pope insists that the Roman Mass is a un-bloody sacrifice performed only by Roman priests and every Roman Mass is a propitiation for sins. If you have big money you can get a High Mass, if you have little money you can get a Low Mass and if you have no money you can get No Mass.

    Bottom line if you have money you can get a Roman priest somewhere to say a Mass for you, which in God’s sight must be the Abomination of Desolation that will be performed in the rebuilt Temple. Personally, I came out of the Roman Church and have a copy of my letter to Pope John Paul II demanding they erase me and my family from all of their silly records. AMEN

  5. Hi Todd
    Yes mate I know athiests can be saved, you are taking it out of context, what I meant was what the Pope meant, people whom pop their clogs denying Jesus, namely they are unconverted athiests can go to heaven, I do not believe this to be scriptural or true. Jesus is the only way to the Father, After death the judgement. Of course Jesus can save athiests but when they repent and accept Him they are no longer athiests so athiests are not saved and have no access to heaven.

  6. There is so much wrong with this. You cannot preach against Catholics whom you don’t know a thing about. Research before you spread hate, and love EVERYONE as your brother, like the Lord taught and His Holiness repeated.
