Pope Francis has been a proponent and spokesperson for Climate Change (Global Warming) for some time now. He spoke at the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals meeting in 2015. This pope is also a Marxist/Socialist and proclaims to the world that redistribution of wealth is God’s way.
I have always wondered why this man speaks about issues which have nothing to do with Salvation. I have yet to hear him speak on sin and the need for people to repent and trust the Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins. Instead, I have heard him say that everyone can go to heaven – even atheists! He says that if a person tries to do good things, God will accept them into heaven. This is NOT what the Word of God says!
“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). (emphasis added)
Catholicism has always been a “Works based” religion. Bible believing Christians know that good works – no matter how many – will NOT get a person into heaven.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
Catholicism is a Cult
Many Christians know that the Catholic Church is not a “Christian denomination.” Many former Catholics are so relieved to be out of that cult and now ‘born again’ from above – truly saved! I have heard the most scathing comments about Catholicism from those who thankfully escaped this cult.
The Vatican has proclaimed that all priests should preach Global Warming
Catholic Church: New Priests Will be Expected to Preach Global Warming
Catholic Online reports that new priests will be expected to be familiar with and promote efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
New priests to learn about global warming as part of formation
LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) — The Catholic Church is intimately concerned about climate change. The Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences is the world’s oldest, longest running scientific mission. That body, which advises the pope on matters of science, has concluded that global climate change is real and is caused, at least in significant part, by human activity.
This is important to the Church because creation care is part of our mission. We are called to be stewards of creation. It’s also important because climate change can exacerbate the ills of poverty. Poor people in much of the world are the most vulnerable to changes.
Unfortunately, the issue is politicized. In the late 1970s, when the issue threatened the financial interests of the fossil fuel industry, the political lobbies, chiefly in the United States, financed a massive political disinformation campaign to manufacture the illusion of dissent within the scientific community.
We know because this manipulation of public opinion has been caught and documented. The fossil fuel industry funds nearly all of the climate change skeptics, going so far as to commission questionable studies, to financing think tanks, and even paying individual bloggers. The deception continues today.
But what does this have to do with the Church?
The Church has a responsibility to care for people, and the environment. And care for one is also care for the other.
Now updated guidelines for the formation of clergy says new priests should understand this as well:
“Protecting the environment and caring for our common home — the Earth, belong fully to the Christian outlook on man and reality. Priests should be “promoters of an appropriate care for everything connected to the protection of creation.”
The new guidelines suggest that in the future, priests will also have a good grasp of the global climate change problem and will share this with their congregation.
Whats next? Excommunication of scientists whose theories aren’t approved by the Pope?” – source
Now, more than ever, it is so clear that this institution – Catholicism – is truly a cult. When they speak of global warming and our earth, they use the term “Mother Earth.” Pope Francis used it during his speech to the U.N. This terminology is so New Age – they are not even trying to hide this anymore!
If you are in the Catholic Church, and you feel bound to it because of family or traditions – COME OUT from them! This is NOT what our Bible teaches. Be bold and leave this cult! Come to Jesus – He alone has the words of life.
If you have read from the above link, and you have made the choice to follow Jesus and His Word – the Bible – tell someone about what happened to you today! Find a Bible believing church where the Gospel is preached!
