Pope call for unity

Full communion is “everyone being able to participate together in the body and blood of Christ.”

The Pope wants all to accept him as the global leader of "the church".
The Pope wants all to accept him as the global leader of “the church”.

These are the words of the Pope.

The reasons Christian communities are divided, he said, include differences in “dogmatic and moral principles and theological concepts, pastoral differences, political motives and self-interest to the point of clashing due to resentments and personal ambition.”

Full communion, he said, is “everyone being able to participate together in the body and blood of Christ.”
Catholics are called to pray for Christian unity, be open to “dialogue and encounter,” welcome what is “valid and positive that is offered us even from those who think differently from us or who pose a different position.”

The Pope said, “It’s painful” to see so many divisions among Christians when they all believe in Jesus Christ as Lord, God the Father and the Holy Spirit.

My comment:

The Pope wants to see all “Christians” united under his leadership.  This kind of unity is impossible, for all who believe in the Bible.

Evangelical Christians should rather be willing to be martyred, than to call any religious leader for “father”. And absolutely not call any man for “holy father’.

 Matthew 23:9
And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven.

If the Pope removes his office, there might be Christian unity. Because when the Pope has cancelled the doctrine about his lordship and his infallibility, the main obstacle that blocks unity has been removed.  Next, remove the title “father” from all Catholic priests. Than they might become equal with people who obey the scripture. All Christians desire unity based on the Word of God.

  1. Honestly speaking to be united is good
    but according the word of God who is in all and over all in Christ Jesus our Lord GLORY TO HIS NAME. AMEN

  2. According to Rev 13, all the world will be worshipping this evil entity. The Holy Sabbath is the ‘link’ that most will accept. Most don’t realize that Sunday worship is the mark of this beast. See catholic encyclopedia vol 4, page 153. The seal of God is His Holy Sabbath Day. Which will begin in a couple hours-sunset Friday until sunset Saturday.
    Catholicism has said ‘if you go to church on Sunday, regardless of denomination, you are really a catholic’.

    1. I think you need to get a better encyclopedia than the one your using.. try using a bible..KJV /AV 1611
      You obviously do not know anything about what god’s Seal.is..

      1. I only use the NKJV. In Gods Holy 4th is the Seal. Do you know what this means? Think of a president, on the podium is his seal: containing his name, title and territory. These are all included in the Holy 4th. Further, God specifically calls this the sign that His children know Him. This is the longest Commandment. It begins with ‘Remember’ and most Christians forget it.
        I have a lot more to prove just what His seal is. Are you a sun day worshipper Sir? Sounds like it. Regardless, Happy Sabbath, His Sabbath.

      2. I am SDA. If there were another denomination that follows the Bible better, i am there. I know that God has children in many faiths, this one is truth as far as i can see. I scanned the internet and there is a lot of false understanding of us. Not being born SDA, i did investigate. This is a church truly blessed from God.

      3. I do have some respect for SDA,,especially regarding their stance on ‘ Ecumenism ‘. which thing I hate more than anything..
        it is an ABOMINATION !!

        i do have a few misgivings about SDA..
        watched some excellent videos of theirs..and they spoilt it, by yakking about Ellen G White , right at the end,,or I would have posted it on my blog..

        I was very disappointed..
        far as I’m concerned..if your sicking to the KJV / AV 1611…then your OK with me..

        😀

      4. Dear Tony.

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        As a SDA, be aware that the Sabbth starts on Friday evening. And that you do not end up in Hell, if you have to work. Jesus the Messiah is our eternal Sabbath rest, the Lord of the Sabbat. And the souls do not sleep. They are alive. Those who have passed away, are in Heaven.

      5. Thanks for the latest reply! Yeah, i am really enjoying the church. I too was very suspicious of EGW. Though the Bible talks of prophets and prophetesses being in the last days, i’d sure consider myself blessed to have access to her amazing writings. Ellen White, though i have seen craziness on line, should never be worshipped. She is spoken of (rarely) in my church as someone who was indeed enlightened. It is very possible to discredit anyone in the grave, yet her fruits remain.
        SDA doctrine has been, IMHO, very abused and exaggerated by those who have no idea. Not saying that there are not bad SDA churches out there, there are in any denomination. To dismiss Ms White is totally ones option. I have read a little of her and thus far am very impressed. Make no mistakes, all of her writings continuously point to the Bible and Christ. She has said, publicly, that her works should never be considered on the level with the Word of God.
        Other doctrines i have investigated and have been excessively pleased. I love their financial system, it keeps the Word pure and true.
        Happy Sabbath and may Gods blessings be poured out on you and yours brother!

      6. Btw, i very much appreciate your knowledge of ecumenism. An amazing person, sermon, that i think you will enjoy is Walter Veith, amazing discoveries.org. And i know that most have no mention of EGW. He totally exposes the RCC and its ecumenical goals in the series total onslaught and other series. He is a very intriguing gentleman with an amazing way of presenting our SDA approach.
        Enjoy friend!

  3. Only Christ has ALL Authority in heaven, the earth , under the earth and everywhere and for me to call any of them father. NO ME. it is pure blasphemy a unforgiveable sin. the Lord warns us, Come out of her my brethern. the fist and second book of Rev a warning for these days. if one did not know, now they do and we as watchment shoud speak out for our G-d or their blood will be on our head..In scripture it says, He is our councler, prince of peace and mighty G-d and everlasting FATHER NO one but G-d has any authority..period. Even in the book of Rev he warns of the Church of Rome as the Harlet. and has warned of staying from religion..as it is all about Yeshua who is the way the truth and the life and NO ONE can come to the FATHER but thru HIM..He tells us , it is better to believe G-d than man and no one will have an excuse and HE said He hates paganism and tradition of men. How dare anyone take one of the ten commadments and change it to Sunday the sun god day..It is a personal relationship with Yeshua and the HOLY Spirit is not in a waffer but in our hearts and leads us into ALL truth. so anyone who adds to or takes away from HIS word is cursed. He said that too. time to get to the bible and get Saved

  4. The thing is HE said the Sabbath would never change but the catholic changed it to sunday in 325bc..if G-d said it would never change , why let anyone change it for you.. IF you love ME , HE said obey my commands. they were importand or HE would not have said it.

    1. Amen Ma’am! Most Christians have no problem with 9 of the 10. When it comes to #4 they yell ‘legalist’ instead of ‘loyalist’. Then most misquote Paul as 2 Peter 3:15 says they would.
      It is really a no brainer. The Holy Ten, obedience to them, is His Seal. This usually boils down to His (our) Sabbath, Saturday, the 7th Day.
      Find an amazing amount of info to be enjoyed at SabbathTruth.com
      Gods best to you Ma’am!

  5. I would rather be burnt alive than be under the authority of that disgusting organisation the whore of Babylon.
    anyway anyone whose faith is based solely,
    upon gods word,{ KJV / AV 1611 } could never accept unity with such a nauseating organisation..

    I am beginning to believe that most of these ecumenical people use the NIV mainly..
    Ecumenism is a sin !!

    1. Battle of the Bibles is one amazing discovery video worth checking into. You are right totally, KJV is the standard. Another that was wonderful was the Changing of the Word. Both by Walter Veith. The research done in these videos is incredible.
      Enjoy Sir!

  6. YHWH loves all (ALL) of his creation, whether they are catholic, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Baptist….ALL. Until he removes the curtain from their eyes, they cannot see. YHWH will remove that curtain. He will call them to him through Yeshua just as he has called us. We are the front runners who will have to help the converts to the scriptures as written. If we have hate in our hearts, how will be ever be able to help? Take care to cultivate our own relationship with our Holy Father and Yeshua, so that we may be stronger in the Word. Instead of criticizing those of a different belief, show your love and pray for them. The Holy Father will do the judging.

    1. While i am totally in agreement about His love for all of us, there are some, because of pride, that simply will not change. While i do tend to use stronger stances for my belief, mainly it is because of the catholic lie that i was under for decades. While you may have a different approach, being blunt, honest and sometimes harsh is a tactic that woke me up.
      Regardless, Happy Sabbath my brother. I pray Gods best for you!

      1. Tony, I too was raised in the RCC. My eyes were closed to everything until five years ago when YHWH and Yeshua took the blinders off of me. That is when I started to study, really study what the scriptures are saying to us. I too had harsh opinions about the lies and the deceit. In the last year I have come to understand the love that YHWH and Yeshua have for us. Just as Christ forgave those who tortured him and put him to a miserable death, we need to do as Christ did. Until we learn to forgive in our hearts, we will never understand the joy of being forgiven for our sins. I am so happy you woke up, irregardless of how you did it. Now, keep on studying the scriptures because believe it or not YHWH is refining you. All things must happen so that Prophecy can be fulfilled. Bless you and Bless Ivarfjeld.

  7. Mr IVARFJELD,
    Respectfully Sir, Jesus referred to those dead as sleeping. Thus, i too shall refer in this manner. I am aware that working on Sabbath does not mean you are headed to hell. You did say that those dead are in heaven? How can this be when even king David has not yet ascended? Further, what good will the resurrection be if we were already in heaven? My Bible tells me that at resurrection we receive our rewards. Wouldn’t that be a let down if we were taken from heaven to be judged?
    Also Sir, i am aware of Christ being our eternal salvation but the Sabbath the He set apart will be kept in heaven.
    My understandings of the Bible are pretty solid. But i am open to further understanding if i seem to be in error.

  8. SpookChristian: hello again Sir!
    the IMHO, younger friends taught me, in my honest opinion. I am sorry about the Walter Veith being SDA thing. If there is something small in our doctrine it could very well be just a misunderstanding. i don’t agree with all in total but for the most part, it is the most solid belief i have come to know.
    wish you well!

    My question:
    Why then since the breakaway and reform of Martin Luther 500 years ago the Protestant Churches have split into thousands of denominations and the Catholic Church is still one after almost 2000 years?

    “I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. And I have other sheep, that are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will heed my voice.
    So there shall be one flock, and one shepherd.”
    John 10:14-16
    Here Jesus said only one flock and one shepherd?

    One flock (fold) and one shepherd simply means that there is only one Church which Jesus Christ founded.

  10. Armorrcc,

    If you want to take God’s word and compare it to what you believe it should be rather than what it is: God’s truth, then answer this:

    Why do you bow down to statues, and praise Mary as if she were God? The Lord clearly states: Leviticus 26:1 “You shall not make idols for yourselves or erect an image or pillar, and you shall not set up a figured stone in your land to bow down to it, for I am the Lord your God.

    Why do catholics kiss the bones of dead people (example: previous popes that have died), encasing them in glass, praying to them as if they were godly? Isaiah 44:6 Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: “I am the first and I am the last; besides me there is no god.

    Do you not know: Hebrews 9:27 And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment,

    Why does the pope walk around as if he should be bowed down to, prayed to? Do you not know that: 1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,

    And he is the Only One who deserves all praise and Glory.
    John 8:58 Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.”

    1. Dear Gloria

      The subjects regarding Mary and bone worship has been discussed many times on this site.

      Al i can say is that Catholics do NOT worship Blessed Virgin Mary and Catholics do NOT worship bones.

      However if you can show me that the doctrine and dogma of the Catholic Church say that we MUST worship Mary and bones, i will not be Catholic and all Catholics will leave the Church.

      The onus is on you to proof that i am worshipping Mary and bones.

      1. Dear armorrcc

        Shalom.

        You made it through the spam filter. Well, last chanse is on.

        You say that Catholic do not worship “Blessed virgin Mary”. That is nothing but a lie. Who do you think you can fool?

        When Catholic pray the “Hail Mary”, this is not a part of worship?

        If you consider praying, or rather “Roman Catholic chanting”, not to be considered as “worship”, you make a mockery out of the Word of God and Biblical faith.

        The Bible is crystal clear, that there is only ONE mediator between man and God, and that is Jesus the Messiah. Christians pray directly to Jesus, and ONLY in His name. Non-Christian religions do pray in a lot of different names, and that includes the followers of the Non-Christian Roman Catholic religion.

        Now pack your bag, and get out of here. And continue your life in adulatry and sin. You have no longe permission to come on this site and deceive people. If I see no repentance, your next message will remain spammed.

      2. armorrc,

        Ivar said it beautifully, and I quote “The Bible is crystal clear, that there is only ONE mediator between man and God, and that is Jesus the Messiah.”

        You now come here with even more lies, denying you pray to Mary, denying you bow down to the pope…KNOWING fully well only JESUS CHRIST SAVES.

  11. If you want to keep the Sabbath just find a good Messianic congregation. Then you won’t have anyone disagreeing with and you will have fellowship with Jewish believers also, like Nicolas.
