Why is Pope Francis Insisting Once Again That the Cross of Christ is God’s Failure?

Pope says cross is failure

Back in September, Pope Francis called the Cross of Christ a failure “in human terms.”  Many Catholics came swiftly to his defense, saying that his words were taken out of context.

Now he has said this again. This man is obviously trying to drive home a point to the Catholic people, and perhaps the world.  What would that point be?

From Pulpitandpen.org

Quote from Pope Francis:

“When you don’t understand something, when desperation hits you then look at the cross. That is the great failure of God, that is the destruction of God, and it’s a challenge to our faith. And this is hope, because history did not end in that failure. Rather it’s in the resurrection of Christ that renewed all of us. I am going to tell you something personal. It’s 12 (o’clock) are you hungry? I am going to tell you something private. In my pocket I always carry two thing: a rosary to pray something which seems odd, this is here is the history of God’s failure, it’s the way of the cross, a small way of the cross, as Jesus suffered and when they condemned him right up to where he was buried with these two things I do the best I can. And thanks to these two things, I never lose hope.”

The cross, according to the Pope, is “the great failure of God.” The way of the cross is “the history of God’s failure,” according to the Pope. [1] – source

God’s Failure?

How dare this man blatantly call the Cross of our Lord Jesus “God’s Failure!?”  God makes no mistakes. He does not fail. He is all knowing and all powerful. Does anyone still doubt that we are seeing the False Prophet when we look at this pope?

I can just hear Pope Francis asking:

Did God say………?”  if he would open up a Bible, he would see exactly what our God says about the Cross and His Only Son’s death upon it. Let’s look at these Scriptures:

“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God” (1 Corinthians 1:18). (Emphasis mine)

*The Cross is the Power of God.

“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

*Christ’s death was the ultimate act of Love and Mercy from our Father in heaven.

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20). (Emphasis mine)

*Our lives as believers should reflect the mercy and love shown to us by Jesus on Calvary’s Cross.

“And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me” (Matthew 10:38). (Emphasis mine)

*The Cross symbolizes our Lord’s suffering and and as we follow Him, we will suffer for His sake.

“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:2). (Emphasis mine)

*Jesus knew that He came to this earth to die for our sins. His “humanness” allowed Him to feel the intense pain and even the shame of being nailed to that tree; but He knew what was waiting on the other side. He knew that his death on the Cross was the only way for us to be reconciled to our Father. This gave Him much joy!

“Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross” (Colossians 2:14). (Emphasis mine)

*Our sins (every one of them) Nailed to that Cross! Hallelujah!  Not a failure, but a great Triumph!

“Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren” (1 John 3:16).

*Jesus showed us ‘Agape’ Love when He willingly laid down His life and went to that Cross for us. He showed us that we should have this kind of love for our brethren.

What the Word says about the Devil

“Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8).

“And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14).

“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:11-12).

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).

Brethren, I feel the presence of the evil one when I listen to the words of Pope Francis.  Anyone who loves the Lord Jesus Christ and believes that the Word of God is truly from God; should shudder at these words of the Pope!

To claim the Cross as “God’s failure” is straight from the pit of hell.  Our Lord and Savior came to this earth to die on that Cross.  That is the greatest news for mankind – that through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ – God made a way for fallen men and women to be reconciled to Him for eternity!

I pray that many Catholics are searching for the truth because they discern that the words of this pope are bizarre and not based on the Word of God. I have known many Catholics who truly seemed born again, but insisted on remaining in that godless institution – the RCC.

If you are a Catholic and are reading this article, please read God’s Word and compare it to the words of Pope Francis. God will show you that this man is leading many astray.  Ask the Lord to show you Truth.

HE is Truth.



Andrea Bocelli’s Mother Was Told to Abort Him Because He Would Have a Disability

Andrea Bocelli12

I am watching and listening to Andrea Bocelli as I write this piece. I think that he has one of the most magnificent voices this world has ever heard. The utter beauty of his voice brings me to tears.

Did you know that his mother was urged to abort him?

A sample of Andrea’s amazing talent:


Since the SCOTUS decision of Roe Vs. Wade in 1973, there have been over 60 million babies slaughtered in their mother’s wombs.  Think about these little ones. Think of who they might have grown up to be.

A doctor

A scientist or doctor who would cure cancer

A singer

The greatest pianist the world has ever known

An actor

A preacher

A teacher

President of the U.S.

A writer

A lawyer

A dad

A mom

A brother

A sister

A friend to many

I believe that all of these little babies are safe in the arms of Jesus. But the people in the pro-death movement have to be demon possessed to not understand that each of these babies are people – little people.

This country will never know over 60 million people who were murdered before their lives could begin. These babies never knew their mother’s arms around them. They never knew a sunny day and the warmth of the sun on their bodies.

Abortion is one of the great sins which I believe has placed America under God’s righteous judgment. Even after seeing that Planned Parenthood cuts the babies up, and sells their parts – even after that, these blood thirsty demonically possessed people continue to demand the right to kill these children.

We deserve judgment.  I am ashamed of so much that goes on in America.  I want to go home to heaven so badly. I know that all of us who love the Lord Jesus Christ realize that this is not our home.




The Pope Says This Christmas Is a Charade – and That For Some People ‘It May Be Their Last’


When I first saw these headlines, I must admit that I was taken aback:

“The Pope Says This Christmas Is A ‘Charade’ And That For Some People ‘It May Be Their Last’”  [1] – source

I wondered why he would call Christmas a ‘charade’ and declare that it may be the last Christmas for some people.  But then everything came into focus, and his words  merely confirmed the narrative this man has been pushing from the very start.

I firmly believe that we are looking at the False Prophet spoken of in God’s Holy Word, when we see this pope.  This man has a political Marxist agenda and he speaks of little else.  Where is the Gospel of Christ in his sermons and commentaries?  Nary a word spoken of the fallen nature of man, and how Jesus Christ came into this world to reconcile sinful man to our Holy God.

No – he speaks of redistribution of wealth, and the evils of capitalism. He speaks of Climate Change and has become the spokesperson for that hoax at the U.N. and everywhere he travels. When he refers to earth, he calls it “Mother Earth.” Can you say NEW AGE?

Pope Francis Misunderstands Why Jesus Came to Earth

When the pope calls Christmas a “Charade” and warns that this Christmas may be the last one for some people – he is missing the entire reason for the birth and ultimate death of Jesus Christ. God cares deeply for the souls of men and women. The Lord Jesus spoke of coming wars and rumors of wars.  That was certainly no surprise to Him.

The Angels Declared:

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men” (Luke 2:14). (Emphasis mine)

Notice that this passage of Scripture does not say “good will between men.” It says good will toward men. Ok, from whom are we receiving good will?  It is from God Himself!  The peace on earth, which is spoken of, comes from God having good will toward men and women – God made the way for us to be reconciled to Himself through His Son Jesus Christ!

Pope Francis has no understanding of this Scripture, nor does he understand anything about the Gospel.  He is looking at this world from a carnal perspective. He sees wars raging and he shows anger because men have not made peace with one another.  He misses this most important Biblical truth – there will be NO peace on this earth without having peace with God.

I need to say that again:

We should not expect peace on the earth until men and women are at peace with God. The ONLY way to have peace with God is through His Son Jesus Christ. Only then are we born again – become a new creation – and are able to see with new eyes and truly love and forgive others.

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him” (2 Corinthians 5:17-21).

If More Catholics Would Only Read Their Bibles

Catholicism is at its heart a works based religion. Since we know that we cannot work our way to heaven, then Catholicism is a cult. I am sorry if I anger anyone with these words. I would rather that you be angry at me, and then in a while come to the truth of the Word; than to tickle your ears with words of encouragement so that you are not challenged to read God’s Word for yourself. I must tell the truth.

Come Away From Them!

Stop worshiping the pope and Mary and the Catholic Catechism!  There is only ONE to worship and He is Jesus Christ. Mary is not a co-redeemer as Catholics have been taught.  Would a co-redeemer say these words?

“And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,  And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour”  (Luke 1: 46-47). (Emphasis mine)

If Mary had been equal with Jesus, she certainly would not call God “My Saviour.”

Many of us are continually shocked by the utterances of Pope Francis.  Because I believe that he is the False Prophet, I am less and less shocked.

I pray that many Catholics who are questioning the words and deeds of the pope, will read this article. I pray that the Holy Spirit will impart truth to them, and as the Word says – the Truth shall set them free.





“And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them”  (Luke 2: 1-20) KJV


As we see in the Scriptures, there was no room in the inn for Mary and Joseph to deliver Jesus that night.  So He was born in a lowly stable. The King of Glory born in a manger, where livestock had eaten.  It was there that God ordained His only Son to come into the world. You see, there are no mistakes with our God.

Have you made room in your heart for the Savior?  Many in this world love Christmas, and even love the sight of a nativity scene with baby Jesus. But they stop there.  Jesus came into this world for one reason – to die for your sins and for mine.

The Word says that we are sinners and cannot save ourselves. But out of His great love for us, here is what the Bible tells us:

 “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.

 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement”  (Romans 5: 6-11).

Most people do not realize that this small babe – born to a virgin – fulfilled God’s prophetic Word:

Lineage and Birth of Jesus foretold

So THIS is CHRISTmas!  If you have not repented and believed on the Lord Jesus Christ and His death and resurrection for the forgiveness of your sins – Make room for Him this day!

Without Him, you will spend eternity in hell. God wishes that NONE would perish but that all would be saved.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:16-17).
