Rule By Satan?
Few mention his name. Many don’t believe he even exists. But when all is known, he is one of the few who can state, unequivocally he has the knowledge, and can admit there is one God, and He is the sole ruler of the cosmos.
Recently, Satan has shown his hand with acquisitions of known conservative thinkers, and mouthpieces who can convince other conservatives to renounce the truth.
Possible ‘Dark Side’ Conversion?
Two of those ‘converts’ seem to include Joseph Farah, World Net Daily (WND), and conservative radio talk show host, Michael Savage.
So far neither has completely gone over to “dark side,” but both have posted recent columns showing signs of incredulity.
Farah, who recently berated Pope Francis for commiserating with the likes of Mahmoud Abbas, while both were in Bethlehem. He reiterated Abbas’ alleged position of alleged statehood in which his declaration for nation status, singles out Jews as unwelcome in their claimed “state.”
Claiming Pope Francis has proven he is not politically infallible, Farah also claims Francis is on the wrong side of history and truth, especially with the well-being of Israel.
Pope Francis never said he was politically infallible. In fact, he never said he ever believed there’s actually a ‘State of Palestine.’ He never said he even thinks a ‘Palestinian Authority’ actually exists. But Farah’s claims go into the deaf ears of those who know better.
As a Christian Writer, it’s highly difficult telling Farah he’s dead wrong about Pope Francis, who never had a church with a history of anti-Semitism. Does Farah forget all of the Jews Catholic priests and nuns hid from the Nazis from being killed during WWII? Does he forget the major Jewish history Catholics had up until Christ?
Time To Convert Savage
Michael Savage has been a little more than “savage.” He claims Pope Francis wants income redistribution. Savage believes it should start with the Catholic Church. One thing he seems to want is all the ‘so-called’ treasures the Vatican has in the Sistine Chapel to be sold for money. No money is ever made by the Vatican with the millions of visits they get yearly.
What he does not say is the pope wants the poor in most other countries to finally be given the ability to help themselves.
Savage’s response: “It’s Karl Marx in a papal outfit.”
‘Liberation Theology’ A Pipe-Dream
“Liberation Theology” focuses on the poor, and critics like Savage have always claimed it is essentially “Christianized” Marxism.
Few remember how Father Jorge Bergoglio, later Pope Francis, had a reputation for opposing “liberation theology” as early as the 1970s.
The influence of “liberation theology” was almost eliminated after proponents were accused of using “Marxist concepts.” This led to admonishment by the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) in 1984, and 1986.
Savage did say Francis himself never practiced liberation theology, but he interjected the specious argument: “He was certainly shaped by it.”
Savage also accused Francis of violating the “separation of church and state,” which never existed under the Constitutional Founders, and does not exist now
Everyone With One Religion?
Even Before It’s News has jumped on the bandwagon. They claimed Francis was attempting to create a “One World Religion.”
Claiming Pope Francis is on “a frantic quest to unite all religions under Rome,” they purported the Bible (Rev 17-18) discusses a harlot church that rules the spiritual world. It says this church “sitteth on seven hills.” The Roman Catholic Church’s Vatican headquarters sits on the famed Seven Hills in Rome, so they conclude it must be the described “harlot” church.
It’s true Francis invited Israeli Jewish and Muslim leaders to join him in prayer for peace for their region at the Vatican. Israel’s Shimon Peres, Palestinian President Abu Mazen, and a delegation of rabbis, Islamic imams, and Israeli Druze leaders were there in joint prayer. The Christian Post reports Francis had also invited a dozen “North American Protestant leaders.”
Instead of one huge church, it seems Francis was only following Christ’s last request: “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations (Matt 28:19).” Did it ever occur to any one of these people Pope Francis just hoped to increase the one true Faith – Catholicism?
