Pope Francis In Turkey Calls For End All Forms Of Religious Fundamentalism

Pope Francis called for inter-religious dialogue "so that there will be an end of all forms of fundamentalism"....
Pope Francis and Turkey's President Tayyip Erdogan.

Francis called for inter-religious dialogue “so that there will be an end of all forms of fundamentalism and terrorism which gravely demean the dignity of every man and woman and exploit religion.”

“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” Revelation 17:5,6

The term “fundamentalism” is a very broad brush and could be talking about many different things. Christian fundamentalists are those who believe in the bible and bible doctrine, and attempt to do their best to reach a lost and dying world for Jesus Christ. Christian fundamentalists, like Baptists, are also those who historically have sought to expose the Catholic church as the Harlot found in Revelation 17 and 18. It’s kind of hard to have a One World Religion if there are those pesky bible believers that are constantly outing the Pope and the harlot Vatican system.


Pope Francis and Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan.

Make no mistake about it, the overarching goal of Pope Francis is to erase the lines of distinction between all Christian denominations and absorb them in to the Roman Catholic system. He will use any means at his disposal – abortion, world hunger, poverty, terrorism – as a pretext to “lay down our differences and unite”. The Pope isn’t selling, he’s buying.

The Jerusalem Post reports today that Pope Francis in Turkey called for an end to all forms of fundamentalism on Friday and said fighting hunger and poverty, rather than military intervention alone, were key to stopping Islamist militants carrying out “grave persecutions” in Syria and Iraq.

Speaking at the start of a three-day trip to Turkey, Francis said “terrorist violence” showed no sign of abating in Turkey’s southern neighbors, where Islamist insurgents had declared a caliphate and persecuted Shi’ite Muslims, Christians and others who do not share their ultra-radical brand of Sunni Islam.

      I can only say one thing: This is perfect true.
      The R.C church is the anti-christ

  • This comment by the Pope is almost identical to Rick Warren’s statement a few years ago:

    “Warren predicts that fundamentalism, of all varieties, will be ‘one of the big enemies of the 21st century.’
    ‘Muslim fundamentalism, Christian fundamentalism, Jewish fundamentalism, secular fundamentalism – they’re all motivated by fear. Fear of each other.'”

    So it is no surprise the Rick Warren is promoting ecumenism:


    If this doesn’t convince Purpose Driven Christians that Rick Warren is Ecumenical, I don’t know what would. Rick Warren is a Southern Baptist which through its Lifeway Books promotes a host of Roman Catholic authors and why SBC stands for “Soon to Be Catholic.” But Rick Warren has long been in an ecumenical unholy alliance with Roman Catholicism with his promotion and endorsement of a host Roman Catholic mystics, Mother Teresa, a PDC program for Catholics, Rick Warren Endorses 2013 Book, “Catholics Come Home” – Calls Catholic Evangelization “Critically Important”, Rick Warren on Roman Catholic Network: http://apprising.org/2014/05/20/rick-warren-on-roman-catholic-ewtn-network/, Rick Warren gives Catholics “Healthy Church” award: http://apprising.org/2010/04/19/rick-warren-awards-purpose-driven-roman-catholics/ (when this false religion should be called the Ebola Purpose-Driven Global Plague), Purpose Driven Catholic: http://christsimplicity.wordpress.com/2009/02/13/catholic-purpose-driven/, Former Roman Catholic Priest, Richard Bennett, reveals truth about Rick Warren: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i74E53y1gCE

    This is a very bold statement! And so it begins. In the next few months we are going to see more of these bold moves from the enemies of our Lord Jesus Christ. Santanist freaks is what they are! Jesus is Lord of lords and King of kings. Satan and his minions will NEVER be able to change this TRUTH. NEVER! What a bigisurprise they have coming to them!

  • I have friends who are drenched in the Roman Catholic belief mainly because their family has been rooted or shall I say “trapped” for yeas into believing the lie. Please pray for me. I, like many others , must take the initiative to at least try to make them listen even at the cost of losing them as friends.

    The article title may sound plausible but read the entire article with a discerning eye–then it seems very implausible.

    We are called to spread the truth–not lies!

    “Jesus Not Coming Back By The Looks Of It” Admits Vatican


    …“Having the ability to turn water into wine had its ups and its downs.” added Cardinal Salvadore. “We all make promises we can’t keep when we’re drunk. Jesus was no different.”…

    Romans 3
    5 But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man)
    6 God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world?
    7 For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner?
    8 And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just.

    This is why pluralism, diversity, tolerance, etc…
    has become the satanic antichrist jew/nwo’s “rule of law”
    in nations worldwide… to destroy true believers and
    turn everyone into a global lukewarm melting-pot.

      Ain’t that the the truth!

      the woman is referring to Catholic Church and the “woman drunken the blood of the saint” id referring to the martyrs and follower of christ chilled by Jesuit and also in the times of Roman General.If you referring this so it means this woman is a vampire. Please study the bible and ask someone interpret to you this.

    • anonymous

      A “woman” in the Bible is a ALWAYS symbolically designated as a church. The true church is called the Bride of Christ.

    • Sunny

      Nice catch. 😉
      Similarly, there are NO dearth of human beings who dreams that Jesus will literally come bumping on the clouds in the sky!!!

  • The final pope continues his charade and will soon be identified as the False Prophet of Revelation! EVIDENCE? Read these two book reviews, study the linked videos, and read the books… or else you will be deceived:

      Shawn: I’m glad you think your going through the Tribulation, how far do you think you’ll get in that Tribulation?

  • mountain saint

    You have to remember that the Pope is not even a Christian but a pagan (idol worshipper). He is praying to and probably worshipping a dead woman who was an ordinary human being like the rest of us and had no higher standing up in Heaven than us (Matthew 12:48-50)…Mary didn’t remain a virgin her entire life but had several children (Matthew 13:55)…And she certainly wasn’t sinless and had need of a savior like the rest of us (Luke 1:47)…It’s no wonder that the Pope can get along with the other pagans like Rick Warren and the Muslims.

  • mountain saint

    Not only the Pope but Rick Warren and other pagans hate us Bible believers (Fundamentalists)…Accordingly, The Bible says that “few” will enter heaven, leaving out the idol worshippers (Catholics), Moslems (another god) and apostates (Rick Warren and his type)…Joe Craig, I believe that the antichrist will be making his appearance as the Prince of Daniel 9:26-27 in a few months, right after the fourth and final Arab vs. Israeli war (Psalm 83) when he may be brokering the peace terms and confirming the “seven year covenant with many” (Daniel 9:27). He wojn’t become the antichrist (beast) until the midst of this covenant when he will commit the Abomination of Desolation (Daniel 9:27 and Revelation 13)..
