Vatican Releases Pope Francis Official Papal Statement Supporting Obama’s Iranian Nuclear Deal

The Vatican released a statement Tuesday officially welcoming the nuclear agreement between the P5+1 world powers (U.S., UK, China, France, Russia, Germany) and Iran, stating that the Holy See...


“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 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: On September 23rd, Pope Francis will meet with US President Barack Hussein Obama at the White House to discuss global wealth redistribution, increasing illegal immigration and how many billions to spend on Climate Change. The Pope will also discuss the best way to disarm Israel and make Iran a nuclear power at the same time. 

The Vatican released a statement Tuesday officially welcoming the nuclear agreement between the P5+1 world powers (U.S., UK, China, France, Russia, Germany) and Iran, stating that the Holy See believes Tehran will reduce its nuclear capabilities in exchange for sanctions relief. In calling for a Middle East free of nuclear weapons, the Vatican also appeared to target Israel, given that it is the lone nuclear power in the region.


The Vatican “values positively this agreement because it considers that the way to resolve disputes and difficulties should always be that of dialogue and negotiation,” Archbishop Paul Gallagher said in a statement.

In addressing the 59th General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency, the Vatican’s chief diplomat added:

It is clear that the agreement requires further efforts and commitment by all the parties involved in order for it to bear fruit. We hope that the full implementation of [the nuclear deal] will ensure the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program under the [Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty] and will be a definitive step toward greater stability and security in the region.

In his address calling for a worldwide reduction of nuclear weapons, Archbishop Gallagher added that “spending on nuclear weapons squanders the wealth of nations” and said that “the dubious strategic rationales for maintaining and even strengthening” nuclear stockpiles are “morally problematic.”

Gallagher added, “How are these expenditures consistent with progress towards nuclear disarmament?” The Holy See “has no illusions about the challenges involved in achieving a world free of nuclear weapons,” he admitted, but called for “concerted steps” for all nations to disarm.

Gallagher also appeared to single out Israel in calling for “the establishment of zones free of nuclear weapons … especially in the Middle East.” Since 1963, the Vatican has opposed the possession of nuclear weapons, Newsweek reports.

The news about the Vatican’s pro-Iran deal position comes as Pope Francis is set to visit Washington, D.C., on September 22. He will then be welcomed to the White House by President Obama on the 23rd. On the 24th, he is set to address a joint session of the U.S. Congress. source

    If I was Netanyahu I would nuke the Vatican tonight! Israels true enemy ,Rome.

      “Tell me who your friends are, and I will tell you who you are.”
      The Vatican believes that Israel belongs to them. God will be dealing with the enemy of His church & Israel soon.

      • skywatcher

        Alicia says, “Tell me who your friends are, and I will tell you who you are.”

        So…what does this say about Jesus Christ? He ate and fellowshipped with publicans and sinners… You may have friends with criminal records…does that make you a criminal also because you choose to love them rather than to judge them?

    • Leo

      Man, how many enemies do you have!!! 😮


      Now, you all are screaming, America is going down…To hell with obama…etc., etc…
      To whom & whom are you going to keep on Nuking?
      What, if all of them starts Retaliating together??? 😮

    • Tony

      Do you not believe that is a pretty psychopathic thing to say? More importantly it is not a very Christian thing to say.

    • Tony, it wouldn’t do any good to nuke the Vatican because the end times will play out anyway; the evil one will not succumb to destruction until the angel comes down and throws him in the pit for starters 🙂

  • Gregory

    God Said, The second beast would exercise the same power as the first beast that had a deadly wound by the sword and did live. The second beast is coming right back to do the same thing the first beast did during the Dark Ages. The whole world is going to worship after this Pope and his One World Church he is putting together. The Pope of Rome is our future Religious Dictator! When the United States begins to martyr God’s people that will bring Him to earth

    • The God of all the earth warned against making alliances with other nations; He upsets their plans so they realize they can only trust Him. God’s power is available to all nations and His wisdom is for all nations; He is only our Savior when we do what He says. Even Iran should reject this because they fear God.

      Pope Francis cannot bring the true spiritual part of this “nuke deal”; he and the Roman Catholic Church – Vatican teach against the mission of Prophet Muhammad who was sent to overthrow the popes’ teachings that God’s word, his laws and times, were done away with, making Christmas, Easter etc. INSTEAD of God’s commandments in Exodus 20 including 20:8-11 and Leviticus 23 commanded Sabbaths of NO WORK, and more. We are in God’s 7th month, a very holy month to God, as written in the Bible. Acts 3:18-21 says all things spoken by the prophets must be restored before Jesus Christ is sent again to earth. Warning for ALL nations:

      The Roman Empire was destroyed by their United Nations style gathering of nations and putting sanctions on nations. God is against nations joining together for protection and control etc.; He frustrates, confuses and destroys their plans (US, G-8, G-20, UN, EU, NATO, Quartet, and all) (II Chronicles 16:7-12; 19:2, 20:35-37; Leviticus 26, Isaiah 8:9-14;30:1-7; Psalm 1 and 2)

      Sanctions are a form of robbery; withholding or blocking what belongs to another nation for the sake of control and power. We should NOT have an agreement; but we SHOULD end all sanctions. It is the way of God.

        Please explain, not being rude here…who made you devine? Only the ONE TRUE GOD/JESUS CHRIST ARE DIVINE. people ARE NOT divine.

        And NO IT DOES NOT! The word of God says the end game ends in Armageddon. Nothing restored…THE GREAT TRIBULATION…you are attempting to really steer people the wrong way…you need to stop..If you are going to quote Gods word… that is fine…but Gods word says…DO NOT ADD OR TAKE AWAY from his word….that is really in the WORD.

    • Brad

      I fail to see how the Holy Father is definitively the future spiritual dictator you speak of. How is a man against the use of nuclear weapons, against abortion, for the family, for rhe poor, and for the proper use and treatment of our planet, a dictator? Please point out the clear proof…

  • Gregory

    John Said, I indeed baptize you with water, but he that cometh after me shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire. Matt.3:11

    American Christians should get ready for the baptism of fire it’s going to purify and burn out everything in you that would hinder you from making the Bride of Jesus Christ and it’s coming the end is on us! The End Draweth Nigh !

    God is bringing out a people to purify them and to prepare them for the Bride of Jesus Christ and that is a different work, a different people, a different kind of people from any people we have seen in our day.

    And to complete that work will be the baptism of fire. Our Salvation will not be complete until we get it. A Great Persecution is coming to America and thousands will be martyred

    • Slade

      I dont really get matt 3:11, is there actually going to be this baptism with fire of the holy spirit on people? Im just wondering cause i havent been officially baptized yet

      • Ish

        Pray…and pray…and seek Jesus. and then pray and pray and seek Jesus. The Holy Spirit will empower you more than you can imagine. Don’t give up. He lives in all of those that truly believe who He truly is. So, He is in you…just ask that He reveal Himself more and more.

      • In Matthew 3:11 we read this:

        “I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:” Matthew 3:11 (KJV)

        This is a PROPHECY of the soon to be revealed Messiah to Israel, John the Baptist was his announcer. This is nothing to do with believer’s baptism which is found here:

        “And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.” Acts 8:36-38 (KJV)

        Baptism in the Church Age does not save you and it does not fill you with the Holy Ghost. It is simply an outward sign of the inward change of you becoming BORN AGAIN.

        “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3 (KJV)

        “Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.” John 3:7 (KJV)

        “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” 1 Peter 1:23 (KJV)

        Hope that helps, thx for writing! 🙂

        • Destroying With The Brightness Of His Coming

          -Yes, but this end time Apostle/Prophet believe that like Jesus, Mat. 24, explaining end times to the inquiring disciples, this is a deal that must surely come to pass. Only now at present, as forewarn of the Angel Gabriel 2004/05, end times fulfillment unto the sounding of the Seventh Angel has most definitely come to this, proving once more how close we are to all end time prophecy being fulfilled.
          Equally that this, despite how unprecedented it is could possibly lead to the end time signing of the Peace Pack of Daniel’s prophecies 9th chapter, between Israel and especially it’s Gentile neighbors. That this is then both the Islamic Reign I saw, after the West cataclysmic fall, unto the Antichrist Reign. All of the above most definitely making Obama, even the Pope, both men of prediction, as so making us realize, this is not our fight, never was, never could be, see Christ’s Bloody Cross. AWAKE O Sword, GOH, Apb,

      • Gregory

        To Slade, Fire in the Bible is torment, suffering, trouble. That very thing is right on us. We as Christians have not had our baptism of fire yet, that is what the Lord is preparing for now. He is getting us Christians ready for the baptism of fire. Some of us will go to jail, some of us will sent to the electric chair, some will work the rock pile many many many will have their heads chopped off!

        Thousands will be martyrs. And it’s coming Slade as sure as you live, that will be the baptism of fire, that will be the fire.

        Who will follow the Lord Jesus Christ? Who will say then, Wherever he leads I’ll go?

        This is a time to wake up———-a time to pray. The end is on us, the end is on us! The end is on us and God is getting ready to do something

      • Gregory


        Salvation is to be gained by trust in God through Christ and not by the horned Roman Catholic Pope, Rituals, Sacraments or penances of any church.

        The Teachings of Christ should be taught out of the Bible and not the Traditions of Men !

        Get it on your knees direct from Him who is the wisest of the wise, the greatest of the great, the mightiest of the mighty. And what you get will be real ! Just take God for what he said.

      • skywatcher

        Hi, Slade!

        The baptism by fire happened on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2: 1-4); it was then that the followers of Christ were individually empowered to witness, to heal, and to deliver by the Holy Spirit.

        This kind of baptism by fire will not happen again, so go ahead and be baptized.

        Baptism (as you probably already know) is an outward testimony in front of witnesses of an inward change of heart; a confession of your cognitive decision to receive the Savior (Christ) into your life, committing, to the best of your ability to live for Him, no matter what. It is NOT a means to salvation.

        Baptism symbolizes our dying to ourselves and our selfish desires. Being immersed in water symbolizes our being buried with Him and our coming out of the water represents our being raised to newness in life, in Christ Jesus.

      • Mary

        If you have accepted Jesus into your heart you are saved. Baptism is a showing of others your faith, but it is not required to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. God bless us all, God help us all, please. Have mercy as we deserve it not.

    • Steven Ogutu

      I don’t know why the nations outside there have spiritual blindness.Are you not aware that the Lord God,Jehovah has sent a prophet to all nations of these earth? Can’t you see big revival in Kenya,and the message here is repentance and holiness.
      All these things that we see taking place are just but a fulfilment of the Bible as in Matthew 24.Jesus said that all these will have to take place first then the son of Man shall come down with power and glory and authority. But because the nations of these earth have rejected the message of repentance and holiness,look at what the tongue of Jehovah through His mightiest End Time Prophet has done to Chile,Nepal,New Orleans, South Africa, Angola, Nigeria,USA and so many nations.
      There is a prophet in Kenya, listen to what Jehovah is dying to nations, and the bible says in Matthew 25:1-13,that for the wise they entered but the foolish ones,the door was shut for them.My question is,When that door will be shut at midnight,which side of the door will you be?

He is going to purify and purge His church.

      • Jewish voice

        larry Vet1971, you so-called Christians are responsible for the deaths of millions of Jews over the years… You ever stole the Gospel from us in the First Century and started killing us all in the name of your Jesus…Even the father of Protestantism, Martin Luther, gave his annointing and message of anti-Semitism to Hitler and, believe it or not, this same message still resonates in 85% of your churches with your Replacement Theology…It’s no wonder America is cursed and soon to be annihilated (Genesis 12:3).

        • Larry / vietnamvet1971

          you said : you so-called Christians are responsible for the deaths of millions of Jews over the years.

            Larry/Vietnamvet1971. yes, you christians did steal the Gospel from us Jews in the First Century and you bastardized it. There is little resemblance today to the original Gospel…Did you know that Hitler got his annointing and message from the father of your Protestantism, Martin Luther…Today 85% of the churches are preaching the same anti-Semitism called Replacement Theology and, accordingly, being cursed by the God of Jacob (Genesis 12:3)…Even your Jesus is not the Yeshua of the Bible…No wonder the United States is going to be nuked in a few years, killing up to half of our population (Jeremiah 25:32-33). There aren’t enough true Christians left in America for God to spare this country from nuclear annihilation (Genesis 18:32).

      • Tony

        What is good about the Pope? Well, he is the Vicar of Christ the Lord after all. He wants peace. Did not Our Lord say, “Blessed are the peacemakers”? How can the Catholic Faith be false since Our Lord founded her? If you believe that it is false then you have to believe that Christ the Lord is false also. As far as being on the winning court is concerned, I’m on the winning court. I’m on the the side of Christ the King and His Bride the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. I would suggest that you pray to the Holy Ghost to remove the scales from your eyes to see the truth.

        • Tony, now I’m confused, I thought you knew that the Pope is anti-Chist.

          • Tony

            I do not believe that he is the anti-christ at all.

    • Stephen Hammock

      That is not true, they are still looking for the Messiah (Christ). I was raised a Christian and I could say the same thing about Christians with our adopted pagan beliefs like Christmas, easter, Halloween, sunday worship instead of Sabbath and trampling on the Torah. The Jesus of Christians looks nothing like the Messiah of the Bible. Yeshua told us clearly He did not come to destroy the Torah or the Prophets but Christians profess the Torah no longer applies to Christians. I can call all Christians Mr. Least because the Bible says anyone not keeping Torah will be “least” in the Kingdom of God!!!

      • Tony

        Stephen, it is true. They are looking for the messiah but their messiah will be the anti-christ. They rejected the true Messiah 2000 yrs. ago and they still reject Him and His Church today. As far as holidays are concerned, Christmas is when we celebrate the birth of Our Lord, Easter is when we celebrate His resurrection, Halloween is an anticipation for All Saints day, and Sunday worship when we come together on the day that Our Lord was raised from the dead. This is mentioned in the Bible. I’m not sure where you get the idea that the Torah has been trampled on. I also have to disagree with what you say about the “Jesus of the Christians.” Our Lord specifically said that He did not come to destroy the law but to fulfill it.

  • Stephen Hammock

    Four thousand years ago the Creator of the Universe made an everlasting covenant with a Hebrew named Abraham. All the land from the Nile to the Euphrates River belongs to the Children of Israel. Shock waves will shake the earth as Heaven reaches down to fulfill that promise, and anyone that stands in the way marches onto the Battlefield against the “All Mighty”!

  • Sit in your posh palace as Israelis listen for incoming bomb app warnings and declare they should disarm. You and BHO make quite a team.

    The Vatican agreeing with a nuke deal with Iran? This is a different shade of pope altogether.

    It’s amazing that the liberals who don’t want US to have nukes, don’t want ISRAEL to have nukes, yet agreeing that it’s ok for IRAN to have nukes. What does that spell? T-H-E-Y-H-A-T-E-U-S.

  • Out “false prophet” Pope France’s is a socialist pushing for the NWO. He should go back to leading his church instead of entering the political arena. If Obama welcomes him at the White House, then we know he is part of the Muslim take over plan.

    • Larry / vietnamvet1971

    Gregory, the Pope is not the First Beast of Revelation 13 (false messiah). At most, he is the Second Beast with “two horns like a lamb” (Revelation 13:11)…The spiritually-dead Protestant denominations and the United States are going the way of the dinosaurs and soon to be gone from the scene (no mention in End Time scriptures)…The “true saints” are going to be evacuated in the shadow of World War Three (Isaiah 57:1) and America nuked out of existence in the same war (Ezekiel 39:6)…Tony, meanwhile, the poor, hapless Jews are going to annihilate the Arabs in the upcoming War of Psalm 83 (Isaiah 17:1 and Amos 1-2) and, a few years later, with the help of God, the Russians and their Muslim allies in World War Three (Ezekiel 38-39)…Israel is going to become one of the greatest and most prosperous nations on earth before World War Three (Ezekiel 38:11-13) and America a waste land after this global war (Jeremiah 25:32-33).

    I don’t understand how everyone is bashing the Catholic Church. When history shows it was the first church established by Christ himself and every other church that came after(protestant) can be pointed to men who established the church. Under what authority do these men have to start their own churches. The Catholic churches I have seen all have crosses in them and images worshipping GOD.If the Catholic Church were satanic why would they have crufixes everywhere.Is Satan worshipping Christ him self, it doesn’t make any sense to call them evil. The nation of Islam on the other hand are killing christians and tearing down churches and that better fits the term of calling someone evil.

      • The Roman Catholic Vatican corporation was not started until 325 AD, by the Emperor Constantine of Rome. They instituted a hostile takeover of the actual Christian Church and swallowed them whole. When I went to 12 years of Catholic school, we hardly ever called ourselves Christians, we called ourselves what we were, Catholics. Over the years, the Vatican adopted the term but it never used to be that way.

        • Gregory

          I agree they assumed control and interposed itself between God and God’s people. Jesus Christ wasn’t a Roman Catholic though he was a Jew he was Jewish

          • Leo

            Jesus was Jewish? Really? 😮

            Benjamin H. Freedman, Jewish Historian –- Researcher – Scholar.
            (From “Common Sense”, p. 2-1-53 and 5-1-59)

            “Christians have been duped by the unholiest hoax in all history, by so-called Jews. This is considered their most Effective Weapon.”

            “This ‘big lie’ technique is brainwashing United States Christians into believing that Jesus Christ was “King of the Jews”, in the sense that so-called ‘Jews’ today call themselves ‘Jews’. This reference was first made in English translations of the Old and New Testaments, centuries before the so-called Jews hijacked the word ‘Jew’ in the 18th century A.D. to palm themselves off on the Christian world as having a kinship with Jesus Christ.
            This alleged kinship comes from the myth of their common ancestry with the so-called ‘Jews’ of the Holy Land in the Old Testament history, a fiction based on fable.”

            “American Christians little suspect they are being brainwashed twenty-four hours of every day over television and radio, by newspapers and magazines, by motion pictures and plays, by books, by political leaders in office and seeking office, by religious leaders in their pulpits and outside their churches, by leaders in the field of education inside and outside their curricular activities, and by all leaders in business, professions and finance, whose economic security demands that they curry the favor of so-called “Jews” of historic Khazar ancestry.
            Unsuspecting Christians are subjected to this barrage from sources they have little reason to suspect. Incontestable facts supply the unchallenged proof of the historic accuracy that so-called “Jews” throughout the world today of eastern European origin are unquestionably the historic descendants of the Khazars, a pagan Turko-Finn ancient Mongoloid nation deep in the heart of Asia, according to history, who battled their way in bloody wars about the 1st century B.C. into eastern Europe where they set up their Khazar kingdom. For some mysterious reason the history of the Khazar kingdom is conspicuous by its absence from history courses in the schools and colleges.

            “The historic existence of the Khazar kingdom of so-called “Jews”, their rise and fall, the permanent disappearance of the Khazar kingdom as a nation from the map of Europe, and how King Bulan and the Khazar nation in about 740 A.D. became so-called “Jews” by conversion, were concealed from American Christians by censorship imposed by so-called “Jews”, of historic Khazar ancestry, upon all U.S.A. media of mass communications directed by them.

            Then in 1945 this author gave nation-wide publicity to his many years intensive research into the “facts of life” concerning Khazars. The disclosures were sensational and very effective but apparently angered so-called “Jews” who have continued to vent their spleen upon this author since then solely for that reason. Since 1946 they have conducted a vicious smear campaign against him, seeking thus to further conceal these facts, for obvious reasons. What have they to fear from the truth?

            “In an original 1903 edition of the Jewish Encyclopedia in New York’s Public Library, and in the Library of Congress, Volume IV, pages 1 to 5 inclusive, appears a most comprehensive history of the Khazars. Also in the New York Public Library are 327 books by the world’s greatest historians and other sources of reference, in addition to the Jewish Encyclopedia, dealing with Khazar history, and written between the 3rd A.D. and 20th centuries by contemporaries of the Khazars and by modern historians on that subject.”

            Jesus was a ‘Judean’, not a Jew!!!
            During His lifetime, no persons were described as “Jews” anywhere. That fact is supported by theology, history and science. When Jesus was in Judea, it was not the “homeland” of the ancestors of those who today style themselves “Jews”. Their ancestors never set a foot in Judea. They existed at that time in Asia, their “homeland”, and were known as Khazars. In none of the manuscripts of the original Old or New Testament was Jesus described or referred to as a “Jew”. The term originated in the late eighteenth century as an abbreviation of the term Judean and refers to a resident of Judea without regard to race or religion, just as the term “Texan” signifies a person living in Texas.

            In spite of the powerful propaganda effort of the so-called “Jews”, they have been unable to prove in recorded history that there is one record, prior to that period, of a race religion or nationality, referred to as “Jew”. The religious sect in Judea, in the time of Jesus, to which self-styled “Jews” today refer to as “Jews”, were known as “Pharisees”. “Judaism” today and “Pharisaism” in the time of Jesus are the same.

            Jesus abhorred and denounced “Pharisaism”; hence the words, “Woe unto you Scribes and Pharisees, Hypocrites, Ye Serpents, Ye Generation of Vipers”.

      RJK, respectfully, if you trace the roots of the R. Catholic cult, it goes waaayy back to the Tower of Babel in the Book of Genesis. Go to YouTube and check out John MacArthur’s or Doug Bachelor’s exposition of the Roman Catholic institution ~ remarkable work!

      The next time you’re near a R.C. priest, take a good look at his robes. You’ll see the sun god symbol (Rah)in some form. Each time you see a picture of Christ or the “Holy Family”, you will see a “halo” around their heads or behind them. This again, is representing Rah. The same applies to the circular pattern within the form of the cross of “Christ”; it overshadows the person on the cross or is out in the forefront.

      In Canada, a few months ago, at the funeral mass of the late Nathan Cirillo, the young man guarding the Peace Statue on Parliament Hill, (I’m sure this can be seen on YouTube), when the officiating priests came out onto the platform,they turned their backs to the congregation and in unison, bowed down to a huge image of Rah on the back wall. This flies directly in the face of the Ten Commandments where there we are all told NOT to make or to bow down to any graven image/idol/statue, etc. Christ would NEVER agree to this practice! Why should we?

      The “Christ” of Roman Catholicism is NOT the Christ of the gospels! Their Christ is one who was conceived from the illicit sexual relations of a mother and her son! Theythen lied and said it was an immaculate conception! It has been a den of lies and sexual impurity and murder ever since!

      PLEASE realize…I don’t say this to be unkind, but to be informative! Too many people are supporting causes they know absolutely nothing about in regards to their beginnings or history. The salvation of our immortal soul rests upon knowing the Truth: John 14: 6!

      If you feel this information is pretty heavy, check out the vows of a Jesuit priest, which Pope Francis is. That alone, should cause you to run away from this unholy institution. God richly bless you as you search for the truth…it is out there!

    • Gregory

      RJK- You’re a Devil just like your Pope ! Here to argue, Oh Satan you’re a wiley one !

      • RJK

        Hey Gregory it’s good to see you’re your own pope and every other protestant denomination are their own popes. You have been given authority to decide what truth is.

        You shall not do as we are doing.
        Here everyone does what seems right unto himself. Deutoronomy 12:8

        • RJK, you have the mind of the Pope. We have the mind of Christ. If you could have the mind of Christ and the mind of the Pope at the same time you would be bi-polar and trying to hold onto God as well as your demons. One has to go, for you cannot serve God and mammon.
          One day you will find yourself standing before the Lord Jesus Christ who will say, “I never knew you!”
          The Pope will not be there to answer, “Oh don’t worry – this one’s with me.” The Pope won’t be there at all. It’ll be you and Jesus, not his mother, and not the Pope, just you and Jesus.
          In view of this, I ask, Do you know the Lord? Most importantly, does the Lord know you?!

          • RJK

            If you had the mind of Christ you would be worshipping God the way that Christ had instituted worship through the Catholic Church. Did Jesus not say unless you eat of my body and drink of my blood you have no life in you. Did he not give authority to his disciples, who’s sins you forgive shall be forgiven and who’s sin you retain shall be retained. Authority passed down to priests. Please go ahead and twist the words of these verses how you see fit so you can feel much better about yourself. No in your mind you feel worshipping God is much better sitting on the couch and watching Joel Osteen or John MacArthur. That’s the reason you have over 25000 protestant denominations because you all refuse God’s authority through one church he created. Good thing your much smarter than God because you know what’s best and you have the audicity to criticize something that came 1500 years before you. So I hope for you on that day the Lord says come in I knew you.

    • True Saint

      RFK, (1.) Yeshua came to preach to the lost sheep of Israel, not to you Gentiles (Matthew 15:24). It wasn’t until Paul that there was a preacher for you Gentiles…The Catholic Church wasn’t started for another couple hundred years.(2.) you Catholics killed far more real Christians and Jews than the Muslims ever thought of killing and you are going to kill tens of millions more during the Great Tribulation (Revelation 17:5-6). And (3.) as for your worshipping graven images and dead humans like Mary, this is forbidden by God (Exodus 20:3-5).

      • Suez

        True Saint. Amen!!

  • Larry / vietnamvet1971

    The Church is a Body of Believers not a Religion or the great Catholic church, Jesus busted up the Pharisees Good ole Boys club of Religion but Men like to think and do it their way.

    Plenty of IDOLS and Play actors Fooling the Sheeple and Deceiving the MASSES.

    So in your mind the Muslims are the Bad guys & the Catholic False Religion is the Good Guys, neither one are GOOD.

    Each one of us is to Work out our Salvation in Fear & Trembling before a Holy & Just GOD for we need no teacher except the Holy Spirit.

    Should we be surprised? Anyway, dont’ really see anything wrong with any country having nukes. Who died and made who king and master to sya who can have them and who cant? All know that should anyone use the freaking things that it will start a chain reaction that no one can recover from.

  • Skywatcher

    As Christian, I have to agree with Jewish A number of things have me perplexed these days;

    1. Where are they loud mouths that scream “separation of church and state”? Here is a clear example of hypocrisy at the highest levels and nothing is being said to prevent it by the liberals, secularists, atheists, etc.!

    2. Where are the feminists? Why aren’t they crying out against the very male chauvinist Muslims?

    3. Where is the LGBT? why aren’t they screaming out against the infusion of Muslims who detest their lifestyles and are a major threat to them?

    As for who is the Antichrist, the blood-bought born again Church of Jesus Christ will not know who he is because they are raptured up before he comes to power: John 14:3. The Second Coming of Christ is two-part: 1. The Rapture: He receives us unto Himself (I Thess. 4:13-17; I Cor. 15: 50-52; John 14:1-3; Acts 1: 9-11. 2. The Second Coming: the saints (Christians) come back WITH Him. You have to have gone somewhere before you can come back.
    The pope actually appears to be the False Prophet, who prepares the way for the Antichrist.

  • Gregory

    You don’t see anything wrong with Islamic Muslims that constantly scream death to America, Death to Israel, having nukes? It won’t be long and the nuclear weapons will be pouring out from the sky. But you won’t see anything wrong with that will you? God’s Hot Wrath is coming to America and we deserve it

    • Gregory, about that you are right. If there are any mercies of God left for America, we need to find them right away.

  • skywatcher

    To Greg: Paul is writing to the early Christians (followers of Christ) in Rome, not to the pagan Roman Catholic church, from which we get Easter (sun worship), Christmas, etc.. Bear in mind, Apostle Paul still had the religious renegades to deal with that Christ had to deal with.

    In fact, one day, Christ even told the religious rulers of His day, “You are of your father, the devil.” John 8:44

    They were extremely religious, to the point of being cruel to those under their leadership, making up over 1700 EXTRA rules and laws that the people were expected to adhere to. The Ten Commandments that God gave to Moves were already enough, as NOBODY could keep them, thereby, showing their dependence upon God’s mercy and grace for salvation, prior to Christ’s atoning work on the cross of Calvary.

    The Early Church was hijacked later by the Romans. Hope this helps.

    The harlot moves closer to her desired position. That of the protoge of the A C.

  • skywatcher

    To Penny,

    Actually, Penny, you are incorrect! The Battle of Armageddon is merely the beginning of the REAL New World Order, of which Christ is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. This is known as The Millennial Reign of Christ. Every knee will bow to Him, whether they want to or not! Phil. 2: 10, 11. It’s best to bow before Him now out of a heart full of love, respect, and adoration…

    He will rule with a rod of iron: Rev. 12: 5

  • Beano

    Basturd sodomites patting each other on the back!

  • Biblical voice

    RFK, your ao-called first pope, Peter, never visited Rome (Paul didn’t mentioned him in any of his writings from Rome), never was crucified upside down in Rome (he died an old man just like Yeshua predicted in John 21:18-19) and he never was a pope 200 years before there ever was a Catholic religion…Nice try but no prize.

    • RJK

      Where in this vast universe are you getting your nonsense info from. How can you even say St.Peter never saw rome.WTF.

      • Biblical Voice

        RJK, speaking about nonsense, your catechism is full of fables and the doctrines of devils (1 Timothy 4:1-3)…For your information, the Catholic Church made up this stuff about Peter dying in Rome and being the first pope…In 1952, some Catholic priests found Peter’s bone box in Jerusalem, not Rome, and, apparently, he had died in his 80s and was crippled just like Yeshua had predicted in John 21:18-19. The Pope told the priests to be quiet about this discovery…And, yes, the first bishop of Rome was Clement, not Peter (Peter never visited Rome).

  • Rip Romex

    Think you may be on the wrong road. The comments, seem quite hateful. You are all “protestants”. Which has always meant ” those who protest against THE CHURCH. Get A life. Read some history. You people spew the same crap since 1523. NO NEW IDEAS. The Pope is the antichrist??? Luther said that, and he was a Biblical MORON. Again, read a book or two. Start with the rise and fall of the roman empire. You people are to dumb for me to argue with.
    Pax Christi,

    • RIP – yes, it took us till 1523 but we finally got it right. The only reason God has allowed the Catholic church to remain at all is to usher in the one world religion that will be used by the anti-Christ. The Pope is the false prophet. How many hundreds of years do you have to hear it before you finally admit it?

      • Rip Romex

        Nobody can argue with a statement like that! YOU are STUPID. Poorly educated and brainwashed. As I stated, read a book or two, try to increase your horizons. Look at the milky way some night.
        You may discover that all the things you want to argue about…. have already been argued about. Even I can’t argue with STUPID.
        Pax Christi,

  • Leo, we’ve heard all your gutter tripe before. Furthermore, we don’t live by ‘common sense’, we live by the faith of the Son of God who loved us and gave himself for us. Move on.

    • Rip Romex

      Hello again,

      Just read your next comment. You are not only STUPID but, you are UGLY. (Ugly comes from way inside you, from your heart. It projects outward).

      Pax Christi,

  • Skywatcher

    You have me a bit puzzled! You say the pope is against nuclear weapons while he is currently endorsing Ovomit’s plan to aid Iran in their Nuclear program! You might need to get a new grasp on reality…Just sayin’ because your comment is ludicrous in light of the title of this news story!

  • Jewish Voice

    Leo (DB, THE Nazi from hell) You are lucky I have to go work and can’t reply to your usual garbage about Khazars and Yeshua not being a Jew.

  • Jewish Voice

    Leo (DB- the Nazi from hell) the proof that Yeshua was a Jew – the four Gospels (no better source)…The proof that the Jews have come back home to the Holy Land – 21st Century Israel…Sorry but you have just lost another one.

    • Leo

      Holy Land?
      This is what You do in Holy Land???
      Even Hell will get scared to accommodate Holy(s) like You! 😮

      Check this out…Very Holy! 😉

      …and don’t forget to read the comments too 😉

      Jesus was a Jew…really???

      • Jewish Voice

        Leo (DB- the Nazi from hell) no. Yeshua was a Jew and He is the Lion of Judah and the lamb slain for our sins (Revelation 5:5-6). I don’t know who this Jesus is. A Greek?…DB, don’t carry on this attack on the Jewishness of Yeshua too long. At your age, you can go anytime.

  • may god forgive me but i cannot warm up to this pope since the very beginning i dont like a lot of his views..and the vatican on israel is such a big dissapointment to me and many other people.. in JUST MY opinion he wont be remembered as a great pope..this is gods chosen people and hes throwing them under the bus….not happy with this pope..i think the cardinals could have chosen a better pope bob

  • RJK, we’ve already answered all your comments. If you go back you will see.

    • RJK

      Good answer when you can’t argue truth just ignore it. Typical protestant.

      • RJK, if you don’t listen to what you’ve been told here, all by reasonable people who love the Lord and serve him only, you’re certainly not going to listen to anything else I have to say. O_o

        • RJK

          Hey why don’t you go outside and wait for your Rapture and keep us posted on how it’s coming along. Good luck now.
          Proverb 26:11 was written for people like yourself.

          • Yep, we sure will! “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;” Titus 2:13 (KJV)

          • RJK, 1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

            19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

            20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

            21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

            22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

            23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

            24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

            25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

            26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

            27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

            28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

            29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.

            30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

            31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

  • edwitness

    The pope is the false prophet and the RC religion is the harlot of Rev.17.

  • Larry / vietnamvet1971

    the Catholics have been brain washed / indoctrinated from birth to Go along to Get along with this False religion. For some people to find out the Truth and act on the Truth it is really hard to admit they were FOOLED.

    • Larry, I was raised up Catholic by parents who did without to send 6 kids to Catholic school; and yes, you are right. After I got born again I went to a church meeting where they had an evangelist who was there to preach about the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues. He said, “Everyone who has received the baptism of the Holy Ghost move to this side of the church.” And everyone got up and moved except for me and two other people. I had no choice so I went up front to receive. From that very night on, God began to get in my face with the Godlessness of the Catholic church. Our priest gave me an official Catholic bible and that’s where I found the ungodly beliefs of the ‘Council of Catholic Bishops’. To them Genesis is nothing more than an ‘allegory meant to teach us something’. By the definition of terms in that same book, ‘allegory’ meant’fable’. They also by definition said that Jona wasn’t really in the belly of the great fish: but Jesus said he was.
      Does the Catholic church as an organism think it knows more than Jesus? Oh yes, definitely!
      It is always difficult to pull up roots, but I had to choose God, and I’ve been doing ever since! Hope that helps. 🙂

  • Prayerwing

    As a Christian I believe the whole Bible KJV (old testament and new) is the inspired word of Jehovah ( the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob). I believe that Jews are His Chosen people and those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God are Christians who are grafted in to His people, adopted. It is horrible that in the name of the Roman Catholic Church so many gruesome and maniacal things were done to other people, and will with Francis (a Jesuit,as the Pope). It breaks my heart to know of what others have done and still do in its name. But I will continue to pray and seek His face. I believe we are looking at the tribulation and living in the time of Revelation. I also believe that the Muslims are descended from Esau and are still angry that God chose Jacob and gave lands as He did. Too bad though… that is just the way it is! Its gong to all be over when God says it’ll be over. Until that time, I think each one of us should continue to watch and pray, Love God and love our neighbor as ourselves.
    I truly believe that we do not wrestle with flesh and blood but with demons and demon spirits. I may be wrong but I think Moses and Elijah will be coming, if not here already, as 2 witnesses to this horrific world mess, having instructions. I think that the fact that the Jewish ppl have such limited access to the site of the Temple and the Temple wall and the gold monstrosity there has angered God and He has just about had enough of it! This is no time for Jews and Christians to argue amongst themselves. Christians all over the world are having to stand up for their religion and beliefs in Jesus and in Jehovah. Jews as well are still being hated and mistreated. We all just have to stand firmly in love. As far as the Pope? Jesus Christ has never needed a Vicar: not before, not now, and not ever! Each one of us is going to have to stand before God. I’m pleading my case through the blood of Jesus. You all can plead whatever you want. I hope that people will accept Jesus as the risen and the living Son of God. I believe the gospel of Christ has reached all mankind at this time. Its none of my business what anyone chooses to believe. I just try to remember these words, “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.” I do not think it is too late for the United States’ Government with President Obama at its helm, to seek God’s forgiveness and turn from its hateful self-seeking and harmful, evil way. As a US citizen,I truly don’t believe that the US government as it stands today, represent the hearts of the American People. And I believe God knows this too.

  • edwitness

    Patricia Marie Mitchell,
    I have to say I was thoroughly blessed by your comment. There is nothing greater than someone who has been immersed in a false religion finding and receiving the truth of the gospel. Especially a religion with so much practice at deception like the RC religion. May God continue to richly bless you and those in your family that I’m sure you have shared your love for the truth with.
