Responding to Tim Keller, Catholic Archbishop Says He Doesn’t Want Jesus As King
And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” – Revelation 19:16
[Brisbane, Australia] Jesus acknowledged being King to Pilate in John 18:37. Paul calls him the “only Sovereign” in 1 Timothy 6:15, referring to him as “King of kings and Lord of lords.” He is the King of all of God’s people (John 12:15). He reigns from the throne of David (Acts 2:30).
Historic Christian theology refers to Christ as Prophet, Priest and King. The Romanist Church usurps Christ’s role as priest, holding the abominable notion of an earthly priesthood and the status of the Pope as head of the church. The Romanist Church usurp’s Christ’s role as Prophet, holding that the church can give the authoritative Word of God whenever it wishes. And now, it seems that at least some in the Romanist Church desire to deny Christ as the rightful King over all.
In response to a tweet from Marxist American evangelical leader, Timothy Keller, Australian Archbishop, Mark Coleridge, recently stated that he did not want Christ as either a counselor or King.
From Brisbane, Archbishop’s words caused havoc in social media, with many people seeking clarification. LifeSiteNews, which is basically a Romanist discernment news site, reached out to the Brisbane Chancery asking for the Archbishop to clarify but has received no response after what is now several days.
Archbishop Coleridge is a major supporter an acolyte for Pope Francis and has supported his liberalization of the Romanist church for some time. In 2015, Coleridge argued that it’s no longer appropriate “in the real world” to say that God “loves the sinner but hates the sin” in reference to homosexuality.
Coleridge has also made derisive comments toward Archbishop Vigano, the Vatican whistleblower who exposed Pope Francis’ duplicity in recent molestation allegations. It seems that Coleridge is extremely satisfied with Francis as Pope, but not so excited with Christ as King.
