The Pope gave an universal message from “god” during a visit to a mosque in the Central African Republic.
The is parts of a Vatican provided translation of the speech of the head of the Vatican:
Dear Muslim friends, leaders and followers of Islam,
It is a great joy for me to be with you and I thank you for your warm welcome. In a particular way I thank Imam Tidiani Moussa Naibi for his kind words of greeting. My Pastoral Visit to the Central African Republic would not be complete if it did not include this encounter with the Muslim community.
Christians and Muslims are brothers and sisters. We must therefore consider ourselves and conduct ourselves as such. We are well aware that the recent events and acts of violence which have shaken your country were not grounded in properly religious motives. Those who claim to believe in Allah must also be men and women of peace. Christians, Muslims and members of the traditional religions have lived together in peace for many years. They ought, therefore, to remain united in working for an end to every act which, from whatever side, disfigures the Face of Allah and whose ultimate aim is to defend particular interests by any and all means, to the detriment of the common good. Together, we must say no to hatred, to revenge and to violence, particularly that violence which is perpetrated in the name of a religion or of Allah himself. Allah is peace, salam.
Dear friends, I invite you to pray and work for reconciliation, fraternity and solidarity among all people, without forgetting those who have suffered the most as a result of recent events.
May Allah bless you and protect you!
Neither the name of Jesus, nor “Christ” was mentioned in the message of the Pope. But the Pontiff spoke about God. Therefor I took the artistic freedom to replace the word “God” with “allah”.
And this is what I got.
For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father’s, and of the holy angels.
No doubt that the message of the Pope fell in good soil among the Muslims. His message could have been copied in Friday sermons in every mosque all over the World.

Dear brother, you know that I reject the Roman Catholic Church completely. However, it is wrong to change the words of others – it is bearing false witness. I know this isn’t your intention, as you love the Lord. You could have shown us the same truth without doing this. May the Lord help us all to be more careful to honor His Word!
In His love,
Dear Maria Tatham, a gentle iconoclast
Shalom, and love in Jesus.
I understand your point. In the Arabian world, they do not use english and the word “God”. They use “allah”. So if the Pope had had an Arabian translator of his message, it would have been just the way I wrote it…
There was nothing truthful in Pope’s message. Even Muslims know there is a distinction. Only in democratic countries can Muslims live side by side with Christians and those of other religious persuasions. In the meanwhile, in other parts of the world where Islam is predominate, Muslims are about their business of persecuting and killing non Muslims. Yes, business as usual. Who does the Pope think he’s kidding?
Shalom and love in Jesus.
The Pope basically copied a Islamic message. It is quite normal that Imam’s use the phrase “the face of allah”, which in English will be uttered as “the face of “god”. In Islam “allah” is the prince of peace, and Muhammad his last and final messanger. The Pope said “salam”. Why use an Arabic word for “peace”, and not the Arabian word for “god”?
Perhaps the Pope is suffering from dementia…the word from which demented is derived.
Scarlett, this is something I haven’t considered. Sometimes people cover for those with conditions like that and so it’s possible. But it seems that he’s alright in that respect, he is however a Biblical false teacher (and much more) who’s both deceived and deceiving others. Who does he think he is fooling, you asked. Yes, who?! Probably most people except for God’s children – those who repented and are trusting Jesus Christ.
Jesus bless you Maria…yes, repenting and following the Lamb is a wonderful clearing of conscience and path to mental health. On the other hand, those who are steeped in lies and falsehoods who lead others into perdition, are deceiving…….and deceived, the Bible days. Only the Pure Truth of the Gospel of Yeshua can set them free. Blessed is His Name.
Blessed be His Name, Scarlett!
One of the sites I visit this lady says she is a Jesuit Advisor. When people have said things about the pope she says we know he says off the wall stuff so we are always having to have people who “clarify” his behavior. Also said they are working to make Jerusalem an international city. That subject may have been covered on this site don’t know. Hope that helped Maria and Scarlett.
This makes sense, Andrea. I’ve heard that the RCC is having to do damage control. Thank you for sharing your experience! It’s amazing.
It seems this Pope is not informed as to what Islam is about or is agreement with Islam, its actions and teachings.. Look at the teachings of Islam. No compassion simplly kill those that do accept your religion. Look at all of the evil actions as of late, in the name of this religion.. Is this in line with our Judo-Christian teachings. We know the answere is no. Knowing this; How can the Muslim god, that condones, this, also be the God of forgiveness, love, hope, peace, mercy, grace and blessings? It cannot be the same god/God. If is not of the true God (YHVH) then the question is, who is it the god of. That answer is obvious. It is of evil.
This Abomination pope Francis is Anti-Capitalism / Anti-Christian and Jewish people!!
This pope is WRONG!!
The FALSE PAGAN moon god allah-satan is NOT a god PERIOD, it is just one of over 260 FALSE PAGANISM OCCULT-IDEOLOGY gods that came out of the middle east Arab nations!!
Our True GOD the FATHER who art in HEAVEN said “Thou shalt have NO other gods before ME.” ( Exodus 20:3 KJV )!!
Jesus ( Yeshua ) Loves you all Everyone Forevermore!!
Love Always and Shalom,
