Pope: I am a sinner in need of God’s mercy

The Pope reveals he could have ended up in jail and that one of his nieces has married a divorced man.

The Pope is also in the kissing business, breaking God’s commadments in the name of “Christ”.

Pope Francis has described himself as a ‘sinner’ in need of God’s mercy, as he reveals how the Roman Catholic’s debates over divorce have impacted on his own family.  In the first book of his papacy, the Pope – a frequent visitor to prisons – told how he could have been in jail if he was wasn’t a pontiff and refers to his ‘special relationship’ with convicts.

The revelation came as he declared one of his nieces had married a divorced man in the book The Name of God is Mercy.

In extracts, Francis said: ‘I have always been very much attached to them, precisely because of the awareness that I have of being a sinner.’

‘Every time I cross the doorway of a prison, I always ask myself, “Why are they are here, and not me?” I should be here, I should deserve to be here. Their fall could have been mine. I don’t feel superior to those in front of me.’

The book will be published on Tuesday in 86 countries and compromises a series of interviews, some of them highly personal, with the 79-year-old Argentine-born pope.

He said: ‘Shame is a grace: When we feel God’s mercy, we really are ashamed of ourselves. Despite all our past of wretchedness and sin, God remains faithful to us and raises us up.’

My comment:

Being a watchman on the walls of Rome, I picked up this story.

The Pope claims to be “a sinner”.

Yes he is. But the moment the Pope understands the meaning of sin, he would quickly tell anyone not to call him “Holy father”. That would be a surrender to the commandments of God, and a sign of true repentance.

And do not call anyone on earth “father”, for you have one Father, and he is in heaven.

The Bible says we shall not call religious leaders for “fathers”.  We have only one Father, God Him self.

If the Pope do renounce the office of the “holy fathers”, it will be a bombshell. Millions of people will be lead to serious reflections and repentance:  Why has the Roman Catholic Church called there priests for “fathers” during the centuries?

The doctrine of the infallibility of the Pope must also be scraped. When the Pope sins, he has obviously surrender to the wrong conclusion, and done works that are not pre-planned by God.

No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him.

The word “grace” can also be misused. God do not permit his children to continue down the path of sin, a broad road that leads to destruction.  The Messiah call people to regret sin. And to renounce sin in their life, and surrender to truth.

Please do not act on what people say. A lot of religious people, can even quote scriptures by their fingertips. But rather look at what they are doing.  Hypocrisy is exposed by the lack of willingness to repent, when sin is revealed. The lack of repentance is followed by bad fruits.

  1. Her he is claiming to be a sinner..yet asks people to ask him for forgiveness? HE knows he is one of the antichrists or is the one.. only believers who have asked G-d thru Yeshua is and can be forgiven. yet this man of blasphemy thinks he can forgive sins..there is NO forgiveness for Blasphemy .. When the bible says call no man Father but ME…people just decide to forget G-d Word which is the ONLY TRUTH…and after all the warning from G-d’s Word, on they go bowing to lies and will perish. the warnings of the one world church and YET on they go…..but G-d tells us when they refuse the truth, HE will send a lie and they will believe it…

  2. I don’t believe Franis is the final antichrist, but his words are in line with the workings of Satan, as will be the final antichrists. Look at what Satan did in the garden, see how he operates. “The serpent was more subtle than all the creatures in the garden” . Satan beguiled Eve, He only needed to twist words a little for Eve’s wheels to start spinning against God.

    God said “You may eat of every tree, except the tree of knowledge of good and evil” Satan quotes God as saying “You may not eat of every tree in the garden” which was technically correct but not in spirit, then Satan paints God as the bad guy.

    I do not believe shame is grace as Francis says. If it was, perhaps Francis would tell us what he did to deserve to be a convict, that must have been a pretty big sin.

    Very much the opposite of what Francis says, you may feel sorry and repent, God’s grace spares you shame on the judgement day. Metaphorically if you’re clothed in Christ you will not be “naked and ashamed” on the judgement day, because unlike Adam and Eve you did not believe Satan and turn against God, but rather saw Satans lies and turned towards God.

    Rev 16:15 “Look, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake and remains clothed, so as not to go naked and be shamefully exposed.”
