ARE WE ALL CHILDREN OF GOD ... no matter what?

 

 

Jorge Bergoglio made the following statement in 2017  —  and I think it is now time to revisit it in light of his peremptory agendum of unbridled Ecumenism  —  a heretical concept altogether prior to Vatican II  —  and which Francis frenetically promotes at the cost of authentic Catholicism. He asks — as though the question itself is altogether rhetorical: 

“Is it possible God has some children He does not love? NO! We are ALL God’s beloved children.” (pope Francis) 1
 

What is more troubling still, is that this question is, in fact, received by most post-Conciliar Catholics as merely rhetorical, that is to say, as though the answer is already understood in the asking — and that answer, of course, is a resounding: “yes of course! After all, everyone goes to Heaven! The pope himself routinely tells us so!” — despite what Christ tells us about the hard and narrow  way to Heaven:
 

“Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” (Jesus Christ: Saint Matthew 9.11-15)

Oh, yes, concerning the  false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves”, may we suggest that you consider five:

  • John XXIII

  • Paul VI

  • John Paul I

  • John Paul II

  • and the APEX WOLF: Jorge Bergoglio (Francis).

That is to say, in short, every pontiff who instigated, promoted, or was complicit in the heresy we have come to know as Vatican II which decimated the Church and Religious Orders, contemned and vitiated Her teachings, effectively abrogated Her Sacred Tradition, laid siege to Her Sacred Deposit of Faith, outlawed her language (Latin), abolished the Mass of the Ages (Tridentine), defiled the Sanctuary with women “Ministers” of Communion (note that they are no longer designated as “Extraordinary-ministers”), secularized the Liturgy, and homosexualized Her priests, bishops, and cardinals.

Catholic Mass attendance was 75+% in 1955 and plunged to 20-30% in 2017.  In 1970, 55 % of American Catholics went to Mass every Sunday, and in 2019 that figure dwindled to 20%.“The Center for Church Management at Villanova University projects an attendance rate in the neighborhood of 12 percent by next year or the year after.2  “Altar girls” vastly outnumber “Altar-Boys” and both are “socially/correctly” neutered as “Altar Servers” — thereby abolishing any distinction in gender as befits the rise of “Woman Church” and the poison of Feminism.

All this — ALL OF IT — is the fruit of Vatican II ... every effeminate and recreant priest, bishop, and cardinal; the feminization and homosexualization of nearly every aspect of the once glorious edifice of the Holy Catholic Church — has left it in ruins, pallid and prostate before the World which it loves before God. There are good and faithful traditional priests — who are persecuted mercilessly by their bishops, cardinals ... and even the pope. Good men. Manly men. Priests of Almighty God! Men who do not lisp — and who would die before kissing the Muslim Quran! Not so Francis. Not so!

Does Vatican II sound like a success story to you? Then look here.
 

We might take the initial quoted citation from Holy Scripture (Saint Matthew 9.11-15) as a prologue merely to the many disagreements between Francis and Jesus Christ in this matter (and many, many others.) Consider the following:

 

Jesus Christ:

  • You do the works of your father. They said therefore to Him: We are not born of fornication: we have one Father, even God. Jesus therefore said to them: If God were your Father, you would indeed love Me. For from God I proceeded, and came; for I came not of Myself, but He sent Me: Why do you not know My speech? Because you cannot hear My word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and he stood not in the truth; because truth is not in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father thereof. (Saint John 8.41-44)
     

  • He that committeth sin is of the devil: for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose, the Son of God appeared, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God, committeth not sin: for his seed abideth in him, and he can not sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil. Whosoever is not just, is not of God, nor he that loveth not his brother.”    (1 Saint John 3.8-10)
     

  • Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven: but he that doth the will of My Father who is in Heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven. Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have not we prophesied in Thy name, and cast out devils in Thy name, and done many miracles in Thy name? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, you that work iniquity.” (Saint Matthew 7.21-23)
     

  • If thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.” (Saint Matthew 17.17)  — note the conditional “if”.
     

  • If you love me, keep my commandments.” (Saint John 14.15) — once again, note the conditional “if”.
     

  • “What fellowship hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath the faithful with the unbeliever? (2 Corinthians 14-15)
     

Citations from Holy Scripture in which Francis openly contradicts Christ are too many to enumerate. 3

 

Whom do we Believe?

The point is simply this: whom shall we believe? The Master or the servant? Truth Himself — Who stood before Pontius Pilate on the day He was crucified 4 while Pilate pedantically asked, “What is Truth?” ... even as Truth bled in his presence 5 — or His feckless vicar who either distorts or  contradicts the truth entrusted to him? In other words, are we to believe Truth Himself or His recreant proxy who speaks in open contradiction to the truth?
 

The influence of Francis’s hero, the arch-heretic Martin Luther (a statue of whom was brought into the Vatican by Francis and now stands in Saint Peter’s Basilica) is unmistakable:

In 1521 Luther wrote to Philip Melanchthon (Luther’s closest collaborator in heresy)Love God and sin boldly ... No sin can separate us from Him, even if we were to kill or commit adultery thousands of times each day.6

 

The correspondence between Francis’s, “Is it possible God has some children He does not love? NO! We are ALL God’s beloved children.” and Luther’s, “Love God and sin boldly ... No sin can separate us from Him.” — is unmistakable. This is the most manifest and deadly fruit of the heresy called Ecumenism.

Let us be less textually literal and more clear on the substance of these mutually corroborating statements:

  • Luther: “everyone goes to Heaven no matter what. There is no sin so grievous to preclude anyone from attaining salvation.”  
     

  • Francis: “We are all the beloved children of God”  —  no matter what we do, say, promote, believe, or not believe. No sin is so heinous, no act so horrendous, no belief so criminal, no unbelief so absolute, that it can disqualify us from going to Heaven with all the other ... “saints”  ... like Hitler, Joseph Mengele, Stalin, Hideki Tojo, Nero, Mao Zedong, Genghis Khan, Caligula, and Diocletian, to name a few. For Francis, these men  —  despite the magnitude of their malevolence and the enormity of their atrocities ... are nevertheless “God’s beloved children”.

Who can so much as conceptualize God uttering something like, “These are my beloved children: Adolf Hitler and his brothers Diocletian, Mao Zedong, Joseph Mengele, Stalin, Hideki Tojo, Nero, Genghis Khan, and Caligula.”?

Who, indeed, is their father?  Are they the “beloved children of God” whom Francis Bergoglio would have us believe  —  or are they those of whom Christ spoke: You are of your father the devil.” They cannot be both.

Either Christ is a deceiver — or Francis is.

However, being God with the Father and the Holy Ghost, Christ can neither deceive nor be deceived.6

Francis can, will, and does.

“Such a harsh, even cruel statement!”, you will reproach me.

Less harsh, I will respond, and far less frightening than the words of Christ at the Last Judgment: Depart from Me, you cursed, into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels ... And these shall go into everlasting punishment: but the just, into life everlasting.” (Saint Matthew 25.31-46)

The god of Francis, it turns out, is not the God of Sacred Scripture. He fabricates his god to assuage the guilt and fear of men — the better to accord with the World, the Flesh, and primeval things of darkness that have no place in the Light...

ADDENDUM:

 

AN EXTREMELY TROUBLING

and accurate — OBSERVATION
 

Pope Francis – unlike his predecessors – has not directly advocated the doctrine of Transubstantiation. Keeping to his South American theological roots, Pope Francis has called for Catholics to consider the Eucharist as an encounter with Christ – an occasion where Christ makes himself available to the community through an act of remembrance. [all protestants understand it  merely as an act of remembrance; nothing more. — ed.] Its an opportunity to be transformed to carry out the work of Christ. The focus here is not on dogma but the action that flows from it. This is very different from the hard-core theological dogma of the Roman Catholic Church.

This is very much in line with Pope Francis’s ecumenical and inter-religious initiatives over the past five years. He has consistently spoken about Holy Communion as a “sacrament” – emphasising the communal element rather than the mystery.

The Eucharist is the summit of God’s saving action: the Lord Jesus, by becoming bread broken for us, pours upon us all of His mercy and His love, so as to renew our hearts, our lives, and our way of relating with Him and with the brethren. [it is perennial Church teaching that Christ did not become bread  — but rather, transformed bread into into His Sacred Body through Transubstantiation. — Ed.]

Through this teaching in the 2014 Encyclical, Pope Francis has departed from the traditional line of who can receive or participate in Eucharist and called for a more inclusive openness to our understanding and practice of Eucharist (including non-Catholics to be able to take communion), and not to make it into an exclusive practice. ... by signaling that he is willing to welcome anyone and share the Eucharist with others, Pope Francis may have charted a different path by opening up the Eucharist to non-Catholics and those who have been traditionally excluded. He is clearly moving away from the idea of the Eucharist as a directly “supernatural” experience and more towards a unifying sacrament.”
