After Pope Francis bowed to worship a statue of a topless Amazonian fertility goddess this week, at least one Romanist priest ‘lost it’ on video and posted his angst over Pope’s apostasy to the Internet. Pulpit & Pen wrote about that pagan worship at the Vatican in the post, Pope Francis Worships Topless Earth Goddess With Pagans at the Vatican.
A growing movement in the Roman Catholic church is increasingly protesting their own Pope. Organizations like Lifesite News, the Lepanto Institute, and Church Militant all regularly criticize Pope Francis and his Marxist, liberalizing influence on the Romanist church around the world.
One sincerely wishes that our friends with these anti-Francis publications and ministries would protest their way outside the Roman Catholic Church and into Biblical Protestant theology.
Fr. Mark Goring of Ottawa posted a video to the Internet that, although not condemning the Pope, showed clear frustration with his (worse than usual) idolatries.
After denying that we “need to accompany the pagans in their pagan rituals,” the priest said…
“Like the Pentecostals and evangelicals do in the Amazonian area; they go in there with their Bibles preaching fervently with love…”
He then went on to cite John 3:16 and John 14:6…
“You see the evangelicals and Pentecostals, and we can complain about them all we want and they’re theology isn’t perfect, but they get one thing right; they preach Jesus. They don’t dialogue with the pagans. They don’t accompany the pagans in their pagan rituals.”
The priest then pointed out that Paul chose to know nothing but Christ and him crucified, quoting from 1 Corinthians 2:2, and reiterated that Paul did not try to embrace any elements of pagan worship and neither did he worship alongside pagans.
We would like to encourage Fr. Goring of Ottawa to become a Protestant. We would also encourage him to understand that the Mass of the Roman church and its Maryolotry is as pagan as any ritual found in the Amazon.
However, this should be a good reminder during Reformation month that the Protestant Reformation will never be over. Please pray for Fr. Goring and all others who are still a part of the Roman church that God would call him to the church where Christ is the head, and not the Pope.
