If Pope Francis Didn't Say All Religions Are True - Then Why On The Feast Of The Epiphany Did Francis Say That All Religions Lead Toward God, All Religions Are A Quest For The Truth, And All Religions Lead Nations Towards Peace, Justice And Freedom?
For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils: but the Lord made the heavens Ps.xcv.
"This festivity shows us a dual movement: on the one hand, the movement of God towards the world, towards humanity – the entire history of salvation, which culminates in Jesus – and on the other, the movement of mankind towards God – religions, the quest for the truth, the path of nations towards peace, justice and freedom." Pope Francis Feast Of The Epiphany 2014Now granted the above is transcribed meaning many words were probably left out making the above statement even more heretical if all the words of Pope Francis were shown the light of day.
So what is the meaning of the above words?
Pope Francis on the Feast of the Epiphany said that: the movement of mankind towards God – religions, the quest for the truth, the path of nations towards peace, justice and freedom.
Meaning that all religions no matter what form they take move men towards God and all religions are a quest for the truth, and all religions are the path of nations towards peace, justice and freedom.
Which is heresy. All religions outside of the One True Faith are false. Pope Francis is a heretic!
Now for the new mass goers back in December who defended the Pope from the claim that he said all religions are true - as was reported by Jimmy Akin:
"In a speech that shocked many, the Pope claimed “All religions are true, because they are true in the hearts of all those who believe in them. What other kind of truth is there? In the past, the church has been harsh on those it deemed morally wrong or sinful. Today, we no longer judge. Like a loving father, we never condemn our children. Our church is big enough for heterosexuals and homosexuals, for the pro-life and the pro-choice! For conservatives and liberals, even communists are welcome and have joined us. We all love and worship the same God.”According to Jimmy Akin the above paragraph was a hoax. He said so here in Don’t fall for this Pope Francis hoax: 5 things to know and share
OK so another straw man taken down by the new mass goers.
But the above words of Pope Francis on the Feast of the Epiphany are taken from the Vatican Information Service Blog:
EPIPHANY, A DUAL MOVEMENT: FROM GOD TO THE WORLD AND HUMANITY TO GOD Vatican City, 6 January 2014 (VIS) – After celebrating Mass in the Vatican Basilica on the occasion of the Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord, the Holy Father appeared at the window of his study in the Vatican Apostolic Palace to pray the Angelus with the faithful and pilgrims gathered in St. Peter's Square. Pope Francis remarked that Pope emeritus Benedict XVI, in his book “The Infancy Narratives”, had “magnificently” commented on the episode of the arrival of the Magi in Bethlehem.
“This was the first 'manifestation' of Christ to the people. Therefore, the Epiphany emphasizes the universal openness of the salvation brought by Jesus”. “This festivity shows us a dual movement: on the one hand, the movement of God towards the world, towards humanity – the entire history of salvation, which culminates in Jesus – and on the other, the movement of mankind towards God – religions, the quest for the truth, the path of nations towards peace, justice and freedom. This dual movement is driven by mutual attraction. What attracts God? It is His love for us: we are his children, He loves us, and he wants to liberate us from evil, from disease, from death, and to bring us into His home, His Kingdom”.
“On our part, there is also love and desire: goodness and truth attract us, truth, life, happiness and beauty call to us ...Jesus is the meeting point for this mutual attraction and this dual movement. He is God and man: Jesus. God and man. But God always takes the initiative. God's love always precedes our own!”
“All the Church is inside this movement of God towards the world; and her joy is the Gospel, which reflects the light of Christ. The Church is made up of those who have experienced this attraction and carry it inside, in the heart of their lives. To those who feel far from God and the Church, to all those who are fearful or indifferent, I would like to say this: the Lord, with great respect and love, is also calling you to be a part of His people! The Lord calls to you, seeks you and awaits you. The Lord does not proselytise, He gives love, and this love seeks you and awaits you, you who at the moment do not believe or are far from Him. And this is God's love”. After the Marian prayer, the Pope gave his good wishes to the brothers and sisters of the Oriental Churches, who celebrate Christmas on 7 January, and recalled that the Epiphany is the day of missionary children, as proposed by the Pontifical Association of the Holy Childhood.Word for word. This is not a hoax - the Pope declared on the feast of the Epiphany that all religions lead toward God truth, peace, justice and freedom.
Pope Francis needs to clarify his heretical statement. Or else!
