Pope on Lesbos: God is the All-Merciful

The name of Jesus was never uttered. But the Pope explained that “God is the All-Merciful”, as he spoke to Syrian Muslims on the greek island of Lesbos.

Dear Friends.

I have wanted to be with you today.  I want to tell you that you are not alone.  In these weeks and months, you have endured much suffering in your search for a better life.  Many of you felt forced to flee situations of conflict and persecution for the sake, above all, of your children, your little ones.  You have made great sacrifices for your families.  You know the pain of having left behind everything that is dear to you and – what is perhaps most difficult – not knowing what the future will bring.  Many others like you are also in camps or towns, waiting, hoping to build a new life on this continent.

I have come here with my brothers, Patriarch Bartholomew and Archbishop Ieronymos, simply to be with you and to hear your stories.  We have come to call the attention of the world to this grave humanitarian crisis and to plead for its resolution.  As people of faith, we wish to join our voices to speak out on your behalf.  We hope that the world will heed these scenes of tragic and indeed desperate need, and respond in a way worthy of our common humanity.

God created mankind to be one family; when any of our brothers and sisters suffer, we are all affected.  We all know from experience how easy it is for some to ignore other people’s suffering and even to exploit their vulnerability.  But we also know that these crises can bring out the very best in us.  You have seen this among yourselves and among the Greek people, who have generously responded to your needs amid their own difficulties.  You have also seen it in the many people, especially the young from throughout Europe and the world, who have come to help you.  Yes, so much more needs to be done!  But let us thank God that in our suffering he never leaves us alone.  There is always someone who can reach out and help us.

This is the message I want to leave with you today: do not lose hope!  The greatest gift we can offer one another is love: a merciful look, a readiness to listen and understand, a word of encouragement, a prayer.  May you share this gift with one another.  We Christians love to tell the story of the Good Samaritan, a foreigner who saw a man in need and immediately stopped to help.  For us, it is a story about God’s mercy which is meant for everyone, for God is the All-Merciful.  It is also a summons to show that same mercy to those in need.  May all our brothers and sisters on this continent, like the Good Samaritan, come to your aid in the spirit of fraternity, solidarity and respect for human dignity that has distinguished its long history.

Dear friends, may God bless all of you and, in a special way, your children, the elderly and all those who suffer in body and spirit!  I embrace all of you with affection.  Upon you, and those who accompany you, I invoke his gifts of strength and peace.

My comment:

In Islam, “god” is arRahim. Translated into english, this mean “The Exceedingly Merciful”.  Since the Pope did not mention the name of Jesus, not even once. We must presume that the pontiff was taking about the “god” of the Koran. This religion claims all who worship Jesus are idol worshippers, since “god” has no Son.

It would not have made any difference, if the Pope or an Imam had delivered this adresss  is front of the Syrians.

The Pope has again displayed him self as being ashamed of the gospel. There is of course a possibility that the Pope do not understand the gospel. Neither way: It will not help him on the day of judgment.

There is not much to say about this antichrist in the flesh, claiming to be “the vicar of Christ”. The Bible expose the Pope.

Mark 8:38
If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.

Repent or perish.

  1. Well said dear Brother Ivar. The Popes omission was very telling; “The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart.”
    Luke 6:45
    Pope Francis is a false prophet and deceiver. I don’t like to speak evil of any person, but people, especially Catholics must be warned about him. Also, why would any true Christian suggest that Muslims and Christians are brothers, when that is a lie. Oil and water don’t mix. Why doesn’t he speak out against their false god, and tell them the truth, that they must be born again to be saved? That they must serve Jesus Christ, not their false god, Allah?

    1. Dear Scarlett

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      Thanks for this comment. Its a blessing to be found helpful to believers in the Messiah. Your blessings will will keep me as a watchman on the walls of Rome.

      Yes, the Roman Catholics must be warned that their leader is not a Christian. It will lead to a disaster for any Church, who do not have a Christian as their shepperd. Most Roman Catholics do not read the Bible, but put their trust in the unbiblical ritials and dogmas of their clergy. That is a mortal mistakes, with horrible consequences for eternity.

  2. I am so full of grief and sorrow for all the people who have been brainwashed into this catholic cult. We as real born again Christians who also stand 100 with Israel keep on trying to tell them, pray for them and thank G-d many are listening and getting out of it. also the money in the catholic cult could have helped many in these countries that are being killed in the worst of ways. It breaks my heart but they won’t listen and believe they are being told the truth. None of the catholic leaders or those who support them, they are all lost and will have NO excuse. Thank you and G-d richly bless you Ivar, you will have quite a crown to put at the L-rd’s feet in the last day which is soon. We know that the good Samaritan was Yeshua Jesus. the other was a tax collecter and the ones like the catholic cult who left the man laying their. remember when Yeshua took the man to the INN and He told the Inn keeper HE would be back in two day s to pay him whatever else HE owed him..a day is like a 1000 yrs to the L-rd, therefore we know time is up and HE IS COMING in power and great glory very soon. and said when Israel became a Nation that we would be the generataion standing to see HIM COME. WE all should stay in the Word and pray without ceasing and help the Jews get home and try our best in humble love to win more to the truth of the gospel. Shalom

  3. Vatican City, Apr 18, 2016 – Speaking at morning Mass at the Santa Marta residence, Pope Francis on Monday urged the faithful not to seek salvation through anyone but Jesus alone, because he is the only way into heaven.

    “The Lord thus clearly says: you cannot enter eternal life by any entryway that is not the door – that is not Jesus,” the Pope said during his April 18 homily, according to Vatican Radio’s translation. “He is the door of our life – and not only of eternal life, but also of our daily lives.”

    If we do not make decisions “in the name of Jesus” – who is the door – we attempt to do so through a “smuggler’s hatch,” he said.

      My comment:

      Neither to you keep your word of not comming back to News That Matters. Neither do my spam filter work properly.

      The Pope is a religious leader, who acts lile a cameleon. In a green environment, he turns green. Where the room is blue, he changes his colors to blue.

      The Pope desire to be the global head of all reigious people, regardless of their doctrines, creeds and colors.

      All who know Catholic theology, knows that the Jesus of the RCC is the Eucharist. When the Pope took 12 Muslims home with him to the Vatican from Lesbos, he most likely planned to “save” them. By bringing them to mass, to eat the Christ of the Pope.

  4. If pope represented some small insignificant church, I would accept this speech, it seems to be harmless & well meant.
    But he’s not, & his speech is only mascaraed, a theatrical performance to play on ignorant masses.
    He’s Jesuit. They are masters at deception.
    While Catholic Intelligence Service – yes CIA – caused and causes all this mess and chaos all over the world, the pope with “innocent” face has audacity to stand in front of all those people.

    It’s nothing but theater. Yin-Yang – Good-Evil philosophy. Use Chaos to create order.
    It becomes more and more obvious what goal Vatican has in mind – he even suggested it in this speech – All people being as one family. What he really means, all religions should be united under Mother Church – RCC & pope’s leadership. If this happens, new dark ages may start all over again.

    After reading THE SECRET TERRORISTS by: BILL HUGHES and “The Enemy Unmasked” by the same author, I quite changed the way I look at politics of this world. There’s no political party I want be part of.
    Those books are easy to search for and even download for free.

    Vatican didn’t loose it’s power, it just got smarter about enforcing it.

    May God save us from her claws of deceptions and her lust for power.
