And Pope Francis is absolutely right. Scripture proclaims there is no other Lord but God,
I am the Lord, and there is no other, besides me there is no God; I equip you, though you do not know me – Isaiah 45:5
And that all other religions are false, and those who teach them are accursed.
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. – 1 John 4:1
But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. – Galatians 1:8
All of these religions worship Satan. Satan is their false God. In the following video, Pope Francis proclaims,
Many think differently, feel differently, seeking God or meeting God in different ways. In this crowd, in this range of religions, there is only one certainty that we have for all: we are all children of God,
The video contains a series of professions of faith from several different religions.
- “I have confidence in Buddha,” a female lama proclaims.
- “I believe in God,” a rabbi states.
- “I believe in Jesus Christ,” a priest trumpets.
- “I believe in Allah,” an Islamic leader asserts.
The pope then goes on to declare that all people, regardless of their religious beliefs, are all children of God, and admonishes them to unite around their common faith. The Catholic News Agency reports,
Later on, after the Pope affirms that all, regardless of their religious profession, are children of God, the faith leaders state their common belief in love.
Pope Francis closes the video by expressing his hope that viewers “will spread my prayer request this month: that sincere dialogue among men and women of different faiths may produce fruits of peace and justice. I have confidence in your prayers.”
Interestingly enough, however, the pope recently stated that “Christian fundamentalism,” (defined as a movement that adheres to the strict interpretation of the Scriptures), was a sickness that has no place in Catholicism.
What does this say about the world religions?
Of course, the truth is a “sickness” in the eyes of the Pope. “For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed,” says John 3:20. The scriptures proclaim that the Papacy is antichrist (Revelation 17,18), and in the last days there will be a coming together of the world’s false religions. “Come out of her, my people, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues,” declares the Lord (Revelation 18:4). Yet the Scriptures also say that God’s true people, those who believe and obey his word, will be persecuted by the world (2 Tim 3:12, John 15:18).
So while the pope is gathering the world’s religions together for spiritual fornication and a false unity, those true believers are being cast out and rejected by the harlot church.
Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. – 1 Peter 4:12-14
