Francis’ Recent Heresies
Francis’ December 1, 2017 greeting before meeting with the “Bishops of Bangladesh”:
“The Church, the Kingdom of God, does not grow by proselytizing.”
The heretic Francis teaches that the Church does not grow by attempting to convert non-Catholics to the Catholic Church.
Francis’ December 1, 2017 press conference with journalists on the return flight from Bangladesh:
Francis: “… after the interreligious dialogue, the interreligious prayer – this prepared all of our hearts – we were religiously very open. I, at least, felt that way… And then, I thought that we were in an interreligious meeting… And I thought: ‘We have all spoken, the religious leaders. But one of you, say a prayer, one from your group…’ And I think perhaps it was an imam, a ‘cleric’ of their religion, who offered that prayer, and they too prayed there with us.”
Comment: Francis encouraged the practitioner of a false religion to offer false worship. This is another manifestation of his apostasy. He also mentions that he prayed with the imam, and he describes the leaders of false religions as “religious leaders”.
Etienne Loraillère, «KTO» (“French Catholic Television”): “Some are opposed to interreligious dialogue and evangelization. During this journey, you spoke of dialogue for peacebuilding. But what is your priority: evangelization or a dialogue for peace?”
Francis: “The Church grows not through proselytizing… one young man asked me this question: ‘What should I say to a university classmate, a friend, a good person, but who is atheist? What should I tell him in order to change him, to convert him?’ This was the response: ‘The last thing you should do is to say something…’ Peace begins to be broken in this field when proselytism begins, and there are many types of proselytism.”
Comment: The Catholic Church does grow through proselytizing – i.e. by attempts to convert non-Catholics to the Catholic faith. These are made by preaching the Gospel. However, the apostate Francis holds the opposite. He says that “the Church grows not through proselytizing”. Francis leaves no room for confusion or doubt about what proselytizing means to him. He was asked what someone should say to an atheist “to change him, to convert him?” He responded: “The last thing you should do is to say something”. According to Francis, saying things in order to convert a person is proselytism, and he rejects such a practice. That is Francis’ official (and heretical) position.
Francis’ December 1, 2017 address to “the various religions of Bangladesh”:
Our meeting, which brings together representatives of the various religious communities present in this country, represents a highly significant moment in my Visit to Bangladesh… My thanks go to Cardinal D’Rozario for his kind words of welcome, and to those who have greeted me warmly on behalf of the Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist and Christian communities, and in the name of civil society. I am grateful to the Anglican bishop of Dhaka for his presence, to the various Christian communities, and to all those who have helped to make this gathering possible. The words we have heard, but also the songs and dances that have enlivened our assembly, have spoken to us eloquently of the yearning for harmony, fraternity and peace embodied in the teachings of the world’s religions. May our meeting this afternoon be a clear sign of the efforts of the leaders and followers of the religions present in this country to live together in mutual respect and good will. In Bangladesh, where the right to religious freedom is a founding principle, this commitment stands as a subtle yet firm rebuke to those who would seek to foment division… It challenges us to reach out to others in mutual trust and understanding, and so to build a unity that sees diversity not as a threat, but as a potential source of enrichment and growth. It challenges us to cultivate an openness of heart that views others as an avenue, not a barrier… A spirit of openness, acceptance and cooperation between believers does not simply contribute to a culture of harmony and peace; it is its beating heart. How much our world needs this heart to beat strongly… Dear friends, I thank you for your efforts to promote the culture of encounter, and I pray that, by demonstrating the common commitment of believers to discerning the good and putting it into practice, they will help all believers to grow in wisdom and holiness…”
Francis gathers with the leaders of false religions and thanks the “Anglican bishop” (who is a layman) “for his presence”. He calls on people to respect false religions and offers a “rebuke” to those who would resist “a unity” with false religions. He considers unity with false religions to be a “potential source of enrichment and growth”. He identifies the followers of false religions as “believers”, and he calls for a spirit of “acceptance and cooperation” with them. He ends by stating that followers of false religions can “grow in wisdom and holiness”. That is heresy. It denies the dogma that one cannot be justified or have sins remitted outside the Church.
Francis’ December 1, 2017 greeting to “displaced members of the Rohingya community” which took place after his meeting with “various religions”:
“Dear brothers and sisters, the Judeo-Christian creation account says that the Lord who is God created man in his image and likeness. All of us are this image. These brothers and sisters of ours, as well. They too are an image of the living God. One of your religious traditions says that God, in the beginning, took some salt and cast it in the water that was the soul of all men and women. Each of us carries within himself a little of the divine salt. These brothers and sisters of ours carry within them the salt of God.”
Francis promotes the “religious traditions” of a false religion.
Francis’ December 1, 2017 meeting with the “Bishops of Bangladesh”:
“An important part of my pastoral visit to Bangladesh is the interreligious and ecumenical encounter that will take place immediately following our meeting. Yours is a nation where ethnic diversity is mirrored in a diversity of religious traditions. The Church’s commitment to pursuing interreligious understanding through seminars and educational programmes, as well as through personal contacts and invitations, contributes to the spread of good will and harmony. Work unremittingly to build bridges and to foster dialogue, for these efforts not only facilitate communication between different religious groups, but also awaken the spiritual energies needed for the work of nation building in unity, justice and peace. When religious leaders speak out with one voice… they draw from the deepest spiritual roots of their various traditions. They also provide an inestimable service to the future of their countries and our world by educating the young…”
Notice that the apostate antipope says “an important part of my pastoral visit is the interreligious and ecumenical encounter that will take place”. That’s what is important to this demonic heretic: meeting with the leaders of false religions that lead souls to eternal hellfire. Francis then calls on the leaders of false religions to “speak out with one voice”. Doing so, according to Francis, will enable them to “draw from the deepest spiritual roots” of their traditions. He thereby encourages people to draw on the “traditions” of false religions. Francis concludes by asserting that false religions “provide an inestimable service to the future of their countries and our world by educating the young”. This is more religious indifferentism from the notorious heretic and apostate, Antipope Francis.
Francis’ December 6, 2017 “catechesis” at General Audience sharing “highlights of his recent journey to Myanmar and Bangladesh”:
“For the first time a Successor of Peter has visited Myanmar… A people in whom the Buddhist religion is deeply rooted, with its spiritual and ethical principles… I wished to meet the representatives of the various religious communities present in the Country. In particular, to the Supreme Council of Buddhist Monks, I manifested the Church’s esteem for their ancient spiritual tradition, and my confidence that Christians and Buddhists together can join in helping people to love God… Also present at the encounter were young Muslims and those of other religions: a sign of hope for Bangladesh, for Asia and for the entire world.”
The apostate Francis is impressed that “the Buddhist religion is deeply rooted” in Myanmar. He wished, “in particular”, to meet “the Supreme Council of Buddhist Monks”. Francis declares: “I manifested the Church’s esteem for their ancient spiritual tradition”. His statement that the Catholic Church has “esteem” for the false religion of Buddhism is a lie and heresy. He also says that Buddhists are “helping people to love God”! The apostate ends by saying that “Muslims and those of other religions” are “a sign of hope for the entire world”!
Francis’ December 6, 2017 discourse to a Palestinian delegation, hosted by the “Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue”:
“I am happy to receive your Delegation, hosted by the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue… Dialogue takes place at every level: with ourselves through reflection and prayer, in our families, in our religious communities, between different religious communities… Dialogue is the source of greater mutual knowledge, greater mutual esteem and cooperation…”
Francis calls for greater esteem for false religions.
Francis’ December 7, 2017 address to a delegation of the Lutheran World Federation:
Dear Archbishop Musa,
“I extend a warm greeting to you, to Dr. Junge, the General Secretary, to the Vice Presidents and to the Delegates of the Lutheran World Federation. In expressing gratitude for your kind words, I offer my congratulations on your recent appointment as President. Today we can join in commemorating, as Scripture teaches, all that the Lord has accomplished in our midst (cf. Ps 77:12-13). We think in particular of the ecumenically significant moments of the recently-concluded Year that marked the fifth centenary of the Reformation. I am especially happy to recall 31 October 2016, when we prayed at Lund, where the Lutheran World Federation was founded. It was important for us to meet first and foremost in prayer, for the gift of unity among believers takes root and blossoms… By praying, we can constantly see one another in the right perspective, that of God our Father, whose loving gaze rests on each of us, without preferences or distinctions. In the Spirit of Jesus, in whom we pray, we realize that we are brothers and sisters. This must be our continual starting point. From it, we can also look to the past and thank God that the painful divisions that kept us distant and in conflict for centuries, have brought us in recent decades to a journey of communion, the path of ecumenism awakened by the Holy Spirit. This has led us to abandon old biases like those having to do with Martin Luther and the state of the Catholic Church in that period. A significant contribution has been made in this regard by the dialogue between the Lutheran World Federation and the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of Christian Unity, initiated in 1967. Today, at a distance of fifty years, we can recall that dialogue with gratitude, and acknowledge certain particularly important texts, such as the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification and, most recently, From Conflict to Communion. With a purified memory, we can now look with confidence to a future unburdened by past conflicts and preconceptions, a future whose only debt is that of mutual love (cf. Rom 13:8), a future which calls us to discern the gifts coming from the different confessional traditions and to receive them as a common patrimony. Prior to all disagreements, differences and past hurts, there is the present, foundational and permanent reality of our baptism, which has made us children of God and brothers and sisters of one another. Henceforth we will never again allow ourselves to be adversaries or rivals. Although the past cannot be changed, the future challenges us…”
Francis begins by calling the Lutheran layman an “archbishop”. He congratulates the new president of the heretical Lutheran World Federation. He says we should thank the Lord for ecumenical events that have taken place with Lutherans, such as commemorating (celebrating) the arch-heretic Martin Luther’s revolution against Catholicism. He calls for participation in the mortally sinful practice of joint-prayer with Lutherans. He then teaches that it doesn’t matter whether we are Catholic or Lutheran, because God’s “loving gaze rests on each of us, without preferences or distinctions”. He declares the “Catholic Church” to be in “communion” with the Lutheran “Church”. He says that the way the Church viewed Martin Luther throughout history has been abandoned. Francis promotes the heretical “Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification” which says we are justified by “faith alone”. See: https://www.mostholyfamilymonastery.com/17_JointDeclaration.pdf. Francis calls for a future which discerns “the gifts” of Lutheranism and other heretical “confessional traditions”. He then says that Catholics and Lutherans will never be adversaries or rivals. That of course rejects the Church’s teaching that heretics and heretical sects are opposed to the true faith. All of this is more clear proof that Francis is a notorious heretic.
Francis’ December 7, 2017 remarks to an ecumenical delegation from the “National Council of Churches of Taiwan”:
“The Catholic Church, through the Chinese Regional Bishops’ Conference, has been committed, from the establishment of the National Council of Churches of Taiwan in 1991, to promoting greater unity between believers in the Lord. The strengthening of relations between the Christian confessions, and the shared proclamation of Jesus…”
The “National Council of Churches of Taiwan” is an ecumenical group of “Churches” that includes the Presbyterian, Episcopal, Methodist, and the Lutheran “Church” in Taiwan. The Chinese Regional “Catholic Bishops Conference” is also an official member of this affiliation of heretical “Churches”. Thus the post Vatican II “Church” has joined itself to non-Catholic churches. It proves again that the Vatican II “Church” is not the Catholic Church but a non-Catholic sect.
Francis’ December 21, 2017 Christmas greetings “to the Roman Curia”:
“The courage to accept differences, because those who are different, either culturally or religiously, should not be seen or treated as enemies, but rather welcomed as fellow-travellers, in the genuine conviction that the good of each resides in the good of all… My meetings with religious leaders during the various Apostolic Visits and here in the Vatican, are a concrete proof of this.”
According to Francis, we should have “the courage to accept” those who teach heresy or attack the Catholic faith.
Francis’ December 29, 2017 reflection “before reciting the Angelus”:
“Dear brothers and sisters, I express my closeness to the Coptic Orthodox brothers and sisters of Egypt.”
Since he’s a wicked unbeliever, Antipope Francis expresses his “closeness” to the heretical and schismatic “Orthodox”.
