500 years after the Protestant Reformation, Pope Francis knocks on Lutherans’ door looking for converts
“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4 (KJV)
Let me just start of by saying that I am not a Protestant. I am a Bible believing Christian who attends a Baptist church. The original Protestants were Catholics who objected to some but not all of the teachings of the Catholic Church. I do not agree with any of the teachings of the Catholic church because they do not line up with the Bible. For example, a Catholic will say to me “we both believe that Jesus is the only way to salvation”. I agree that Jesus is the only way to salvation and Heaven. But the Catholic church then tells me that in order to “have Jesus”, I must perform various Catholic sacramental rituals (not found in the Bible), pray the Rosary (not found in the Bible), confess my sins to a priest (not found in the Bible), and ask Mary to “make intercession with her son” for me (also not found in the Bible). The Bible and the Catholic church have never been in harmony, and they will never be in harmony.
So it is with great fascination that we see Pope Francis making his move to bring Protestant back into the Catholic church:
Pope Francis will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation by attending an ecumenical service in Sweden as a guest of the Lutheran church, the Vatican said Monday. In a gesture that would even recently have been unthinkable for a Catholic pontiff, Francis will visit the Swedish city of Lund on October 31 for a commemoration jointly organised by his own inter-faith agency and the Lutheran World Federation (LWF). source
For the past few years, Pope Francis has been working overtime to bring God’s “wandering children” back under the tent of Mother Rome. He has been surprisingly successful with the televangelists and the Charismatics who, having no Bible to stand on, fall quite easily under the seductive charm of the Vatican spokesperson. See this video below for more on that:
Pope Francis is building his One World Church, and the gates of Hell are helping him to create it. We have long said that before it’s all over, an enormous cross-section of Laodicean Christianity will either join the Pope’s unholy end times church or will be supporters of it. We present the following links as evidence:

- POPE FRANCIS MEETS WITH CHARISMATIC CHURCH LEADERS TO PLAN RETURN TO MOTHER CHURCH
Francis is going after the low-hanging fruit in the Lutheran church, they have long since lost any sense of Biblical direction they once had. The same goes for the apostate Presbyterian Church USA as well with their lesbians priests and same-sex marriage ceremonies. The sad part is that millions of Protestants gave their lives to throw off the demonic shackles of Rome and the Vatican. The King James Bible would not have been possible without the Protestant Reformation.
“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. And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.” Revelation 17:5-7 (KJV)
And the idea that Pope Francis could one day woo them back is tragic, but it is also part of end times prophecy. The Vatican is the Whore of Babylon mentioned in Revelation 17 & 18, and the office of Pope has long been associated with the office of the Antichrist.
