Pope Francis is in the news yet again. He claims that He Has authority to forgive sins and is ordaining other priests to go around the world on missions to do the same. I can’t see anywhere in the Bible where it says that any man can forgive sins. Only Jesus can do this.
Pope Francis is considered God on earth to the Catholic Church.
Pope Francis can’t forgive sins. Only Jesus Can.
Pope Francis does not have the Authority to give others the Authority to forgive sins. Pope Francis said the church should be less judgmental but the "Word of God" itself tells us to rebuke and reprove.
2 Timothy 4:2: Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
We all have the authority to tell someone when they are in sin. Paul preached that if we tell a person that they are in sin and they refuse to repent, then we are to remove them from the fellowship.
1Co:5:13: But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
1Co:6:5: I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?
2Co:6:17: Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
Judgmental? In other countries, if a person is caught in sin in a church and the person refuses to repent, rather be it Homosexuality or adultery or fornication, that person is discomunicated from the churches there.
God was not slack in His commandments. So I ask this, who does Pope Francis think he Is, God on earth? The answer is yes and this will shock you. So do most Catholics. With all the Idolatry and fornication and homosexuality in the Catholic Church, where is the Holiness that God commanded us to Live In?
Just Like in Corinth, we are to put away such wicked people out of the Church so they don’t corrupt others. This is my thought on the Catholic church.
If you are a member of a Catholic Church, I suggest you Heed to this warning and if your living in Sin I suggest you repent Today. Jesus is coming for a Holy, Spotless and Blemishless Church.
And before anyone quotes Matthew 7:1, I suggest you read the Whole of chapter Matthew 7, so that you don’t give heed to Demonic Spirits and misquote or take out of context any scripture. We are judged by idle words.
Matthew 12:36: But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
Misquoting scripture and teaching others false doctrine is a terrible sin. Be Careful!
