The Pope grants forgiveness for abortions

The Vatican priesthood will grant forgiveness for Roman Catholics who have taken abortion.

The Pope use his chair to grant forgiveness for people who have killed their children.
The Pope use his chair to grant forgiveness for people who have killed their child, in the claimed “holy year”.

Pope Francis will give all priests discretion during the Roman Catholic Church’s upcoming Holy Year to formally forgive women who have had abortions, in the Argentine pontiff’s latest move towards a more open and inclusive church.

In Church teaching, abortion is such a grave sin that those who procure or perform it incur an automatic excommunication. Usually only designated clergy and missionaries can formally forgive abortions.

But from Dec.8 to Nov. 26, during an extraordinary Holy Year or “Jubilee” on the theme of mercy announced by Pope Francis in March, all priests will be able to do so, he said in a letter published on Tuesday by the Vatican.

In the letter, Francis described the “existential and moral ordeal” faced by women who have terminated pregnancies and said he had “met so many women who bear in their heart the scar of this agonizing and painful decision”.

Francis is the first non-European pope in 1,300 years and has marked himself out for his tolerance regarding taboo topics. Although he has shown no intention of retracting the Church’s opposition to abortion, he has alarmed conservatives by taking a less forceful tone than his predecessors.

However, Pope Francis is taking it to a universal level. He said that the forgiveness of God can’t be denied to a person who has sincerely repented, especially when the person comes to the Sacrament of Confession in order to be genuinely reconciled with the Father.

My comment:

The Pope claims infallibility in matters of good moral, and interpretation of scriptures. Here is seems that the Pope has failed on both accounts.

If God is not willing to forgive, what kind of forgiveness can be granted by a priest?

Any person who claim to know Jesus, but kill an unborn child, can not be sure of forgiveness. That would be to take forgiveness for grated. “cheep mercy” is another word for such theology.

The Bible is crystal clear. Those who claim to know the Messiah,  can not continue to sin on purpose.

1.John 3:6
No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him.

1. John 3:9
No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God.

1.John 5:18
We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the One who was born of God keeps them safe, and the evil one cannot harm them.

Those who have been born again by the spirit of God, will hate sin. Regardless of what the Pope and his religious priesthood might claim. If we fear God, we will obey Him.

For all who have had faith in the Pope because the Roman Catholic Church stand against abortion, hopefully this was the eyeopener they needed. The new logic is: If the Pope can grant forgiveness, no need to worry about murdering a child.

  1. Just try live in Italy and you ll see what Catholic nightmare is. You tell you have been baptized and are member of a Baptist church, and when you say to them you don’t recognize the pope as your boss their face changes like they had seen an Alien coming out of an UFO. Watch television and you find every time at least one channel with a priest host of a talk show or in a service in a tv news. The third tv channel of public television in Italy is the traditional channel of the former Partito Comunista Italiano, ohhh boy, just watch the historical documentary of that “Communist” channel introduced by ….. Federico Lombardi SJ, spokesman of the pope (documentary about the short (and fake) war between Hitler & the Catholic church in Germany, a war staged to make appear the Catholic Hitler as “siding with German Protestants”). Here you go around with a Christian T-shirt and you become immediately a “black sheep”. But you can wear T-shirts with skulls, satanic symbols, whatever scandalous slogan or drawing no one caring of you. Particularly my city, Trieste, which is even called one of the Gates for the Jews who escaped Nazism (with plenty of Masonic and Sabbataian Judaism). Satanism everywhere, many old people with tattoo. To live in Italy is to live in the Second Vatican Pontifical reign; you are like Lot alone with his family to live in Sodom totally surrounded by wickedness, blasphemy, satanism and apostasy. For real they worship the abortion, stay sure, hasn’t the Harlot ABORTED the Christians from Italy? Haven’t they “aborted” the Christians with 15 centuries of continue bloody crusades against Vaudoises, Patareni, Catari, Albigenses, etc. then slandered as “Manicheans”? Be not deceived: they WORSHIP the abortion, ritually and occultly because is the heinous desire of Satan to see the baby Jesus be aborted. How many baby-skeletons were found in the underground of monasteries here? The first time I heard of it was from a colleague of job, his cousin working in Slovenia in Koper, during the Socialist Yugoslavia, in to do road maintenance works they entered in the undergrounds of a monastery and found ….. baby-skeletons. Then another person told me about same findings in a monastery of the near city of Gorizia. And in Tuscany.

  2. Men that know little of the inner pain and heart breaking choice that some women have to make,if a women is raped or has a husband that beats her and her children what do they do.The RCC do not worship abortion or use it ritually,they have opposed it and condemned woman for it until now,maybe they are beginning to realize that for most catholic women or any woman for that matter it is not a choice they make lightly.Under catholic law a women must not divorce no matter what is inflicted on her in marriage My mother was one such woman,who endured year,s of beating’s,poverty and fear,she went to her church in desperation and was told to FORGIVE her husbands weakness,go home be a good wife,we lived in fear daily,And what of the young teenager who was raped found she was pregnant and denied an abortion because she was Irish catholic and was threatened with prison and band from leaving the country to seek a termination of a child not concieved in love or union of marriage but in a fowl act of rape,

    1. Dear Rommgirl

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      The choice any woman must make, is to fear God and obey Him. Not listen to the RCC priesthood. They are not serving God of the Bible.

      1. 1 JOHN;1-9…God is willing to forgive if the person has true repentance it is not up to you to say what and if he will forgive,and no church clergy or missionaries can formally forgive abortion it has never been allowed within the religion,that statement is an absolute lie,the

      2. Rommgirl.

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        You shall not commit murder. Killing an innocent child inside the mothers womb is murder.

    2. “The RCC do not worship abortion or use it ritually,they have opposed it and condemned woman for it until now “. So, why so many babies’ bones UNDER MONASTERIES? Were the babies of the Neanderthal men? Why to continue this deception and not to confess this horrible madness of the cult of ASTARTE (Semiramis) revived with the Catholic church? Archeological finding full of babies’ bones around the shrine of Astarte. More recently, also in Mexico and in Spain, monasteries were the location where the Catholic church were and is secretly worshipping Astarte sacrificing to her the babies: “According to ex-Jesuit priest Dr. Alberto Rivera, bodies of babies were found in Madrid, Spain, in 1932, and in Seville, Spain, in 1934. The governments of President Aznar and Manuel Azana demanded a national investigation of all Catholic monasteries, nunneries and church buildings in Spain.Of course the Spanish Civil War started soon after the investigation began!!”… Alberto Rivera is fully confirmed with the skeletons of babies found under church compounds in Koper/Capodistria, Gorizia, Tuscany. If you don’t repent don’t ask pity to GOD, you are in accompliance with the Harlot: “And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.”, Mark, 9:42.

  3. Wow is there no end to this mans arrogance, he does not take the place of God and he doesn’t have the authority to grant forgiveness for the decisions of others.

  4. They do fear God and know his law and live in guilt a perpetual state of regret any many grieve the loss there entire life,most people will abide by the laws of the faith they are being raised to believe in,just as you were a catholic prior,then an atheist and now a renewed true christian,How many judgements will be on your’e page of life’s book,ahh redemption,you are cleansed in the blood of the lamb so you may enter the kingdom to face judgement,funny that we can be complete A/HOLE’S 20,30,40 odd years of our live’s,engage in what we chose,deny Christ the saviour ,suddenly discover him,mutter repentance after you are SAVED to others and think you are assured a place within the kingdom

      We can not expect the pagans to honor God of the Bible. They will have to be born again by the spirit of God, to be able to understand spiritual matters.

      A pagan who have killed her unborn baby, can obviously be forgiven. Sinc she killed her child, before she knew the Messiah. A Christian who kill her own baby, have betrayed the God she claims she obeys.

      One of the toughest difficulties we face, is to council Christian girls who have become pragnant after being raped. I have been involved in one case like this.

      Should such a girl, give birth to her child?

      The question is yes. The child is innocent of the crime committed. The child should not be denied the right to live, because of the act of a vile and shamless man.

      I adviced the woman to give birth, and promised to give her different kinds of support.

      I do respect raped women, who take abortion after being raped. It was their decission. But I can not promise them forgiveness for this sin. I can simply not find permission to do so in the Word of God.

      1. The Hebrew pagan practised child sacrifice to the belly of Baal ,as did the Canaanite,Roman’s etc,so therefore we can understand why GOD gave this law to Abraham,The change from paganism to Christianity was emerging and a new moral code was needed to be totally opposite to the practises of paganism so it was given in the Tanakh that only God can take a life,and if man take even one life of another it is though he kill the whole world,There is only one passage in the bible that relate’s to miscarriage EX;21;22 and that concerns itself with compensation to the husband for loss,but no where does it specifically say abortion,If a man commit’s murder but repents and ask’s GODS mercy and forgiveness and excepts JESUS as his saviour will he be forgiven,if the answer is yes,then why not a woman who does the same.You dont need to promise forgiveness it is not your’e place to it is GOD’S,It is kind of you to offer support but you cannot alleviate the mental and emotional anguish this woman will live in her heart and mind every day and to also raise a child from that is a reminder of it every day they relieve that rape and shame every day.THEY STILL STONE WOMAN TO DEATH IN THE MIDDLE EAST FOR BEING RAPED that’s murder is it not

      2. Dear Rommgirl.

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        Either we like it or not, this is what God says in His words.

        Ezekiel 33:13 onwards:

        13 If I tell a righteous person that they will surely live, but then they trust in their righteousness and do evil, none of the righteous things that person has done will be remembered; they will die for the evil they have done. 14 And if I say to a wicked person, “You will surely die,” but they then turn away from their sin and do what is just and right – 15 if they give back what they took in pledge for a loan, return what they have stolen, follow the decrees that give life, and do no evil – that person will surely live; they will not die. 16 None of the sins that person has committed will be remembered against them. They have done what is just and right; they will surely live.

        You seems to be of the opinion, that this is unfair. God has a message for you:

        17 ‘Yet your people say, “The way of the Lord is not just.” But it is their way that is not just. 18 If a righteous person turns from their righteousness and does evil, they will die for it. 19 And if a wicked person turns away from their wickedness and does what is just and right, they will live by doing so. 20 Yet you Israelites say, “The way of the Lord is not just.” But I will judge each of you according to your own ways.’

        (end of scriptures)

        I do not base my faith on the opinions of men. I base my faith on the Word of God.

        A woman who knows the ways of rigtheousness, can not murder her own child. A man who knows the Lord, can not rape, steal or murder. If he do, he will die and perish.

      3. This is not an issue on fairness,it is about forgiveness ,Ezek;33-13 onwards is about Gods willingness to forget the sin’s if there is repentance 16-none of the sins that a person has commited will be remembered against them ect ,maybe you should read ,read read (DITTO) and look at psalm 130 1-8 while you are at it .This is not me giving my personal opinion about scripture either as you always state,these word’s are GOD’S decree

      4. Dear Rommgirl.

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        God is pretty clear in His words spoken through Ezekiel.

        If a righteous person turns from their righteousness and does evil, they will die for it.

        We might not like this, and even refuse to accept that God do act like this. But He does. If you know God, and plan to murder your child. Do not do it. If the Pope says you will be forgiven, do not believe him. He is the man of lawlessness.

        We must hate evil, as God hates evil.

        Proverbs 8:13

        The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate.

  5. Mercy invites repentance and conversion and ensures the sinner that once God forgives a sin, he forgets it.

    The Gospel teaches us that Christians will be judged by the mercy they show others.

    Mercy expresses God’s way of reaching out to the sinner, offering him a new chance to look at himself, convert and believe.

      By mercy I will not spam you. Even though you have lied, after promising the readers of News That Matters not to return.

      If a person comes into my room with a gun and threaten to kill me, I will have to warn him of the consequences of pulling the trigger. 20 years in jail is not the worst consequence.

      If that person claim to be a Christian, I will have to tell him that purpusly sinning will be a betrayal of the Messiah. There are many who claim to know Him who betray him. Like Judas.

      That a Roman Catholic priest will be willing to grant absolution after the crime has been committed, do not change the reality on the ground. Neither will it make the Word of God null and void.

      You shall not murder. No man can set this command of God aside.

      1. May i recommend a book called who said women cant teach by charles trombley quote only a part of the scripture that you are using to argue your’e interpretation,under God’s law a sin is a sin ,all sin under true repentance is washed away from the blood of the lamb’s sacrifice and the exceptance of Jesus the redeemer..GO AND SIN NO MORE please read JOHN;8 2-18 you are not condemned for the sin ,you are condemned if you deny Christ

      2. Rommgirl

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        I believe you do not want to understand the differnce between the sins of pagans and those of Christians. People who do not believe in Jesus are not consious about sin, and they can not plan to disobey God. You can. A Christian can sin by mistake. But to kill a child in the womb of a mother requires some planning. Only lawless people do this.

    You use the Council of Media to write your articles. There is a huge difference between the actual Catholic article written and the article in the Council of Media.

    The interpertations of the Council of Media is way off regarding Catholic news and must be corrected by Catholics.

    I believe I am not in the wrong to try and explain what the actual report written in the Catholic media really means.

    I am convinced that you will be great full if I block myself going to your site.

    The question to ask, why is the Council of Media twisting the actual report?

  7. Remember Paul,in Romans…HE said, I find myself saying and doing things I hate, I am the chief sinner. yet he was forgiven over and over for the throne he had in his side, he seemed depressed and then remembered Christ died for all our sin. why, because He knew we would sin as long as we had flesh on us. There is only ONE Sin that G-d will not forgive. it is Blasphemy….and HE tells us sin is sin, if we break one which we all do, we break every commandment. that is the Crosss where HE died for all sin. as far as the Catholic cult..G-d said HE hated paganism and traditions of men. G-d called the catholic snakes and vipers. they killed his followers and priests and forced Jews to become catholic, just like in the time of hitler. to call one anyone the HOLY FATHER on Earth or claim to forgive instead of praying to the Father thru Christ, it is pure Blasphemy…..which He told us was unforgiveable..

    1. Mike

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      You asked:

      What sin did Jesus not die for? If he did not die for all sins then we are all condemned.

      My reply:

      I am glad you asked that question. Jesus explained that there is a sin that will never be forgiven. And that is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. So we have to still fear God, post Jesus death and ressurection. We have to walk the narrow path, and make it through the narrow gate.

      Jesus paid the atoning price for all sins. Past, present and future. That He has the power and authority to forgive all sins, do not include a promise to forgive all sins of people who do not obey Him. That is why people perish.

      Jesus forgave sins before He died on the cross. But on the cross He also defeated death, and won an eternal redemption. His death and ressurection do not grant me a permission to purpusly going on sinning. That is my point in this artcile.

      If you claim to obey Jesus, but plan to murder your child, do not believe that the Pope can grant you forgiveness. You will both be mocking God of the Bible.

      1. Dear Mike.

        Shalom, and love in Jesus.

        I feel this is a suitable message from Paul, about what will happen to all who do not obey. They had some knowledge about Jesus, but did obviously not know Him. They will share the same destiny as all who do not know God.

        2.Tess 1:6-10

        since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you, and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed.
