Pope Francis Calls For A ‘Paradigm Shift’ In Roman Catholic Theology To ‘Facilitate Collaboration’ With Other Religions Like Buddhism And Atheists

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

Pope Francis has called for a ‘paradigm shift’ in Catholic theology that takes widespread engagement with contemporary science, culture, and people’s lived experience as an essential starting point. In other words, the One World Religion

On a daily basis, Pope Francis continues to do everything we give him credit for doing, which is to be the driving force behind preparing the coming kingdom of Antichrist. Pope Francis is already the king of Vatican City, Revelation 18, and he is the spiritual leader over the counterfeit Christian Church, Revelation 17, known as Roman Catholicism. His recent comments on changing their theology, such as it is, is perfectly inline with the coming One World Religion of Antichrist.

“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 (KJB)

I was a Roman Catholic for 30 years of my life before getting saved in 1991. I was well trained as an ‘altar boy’ in the myriad religious rites of Catholicism, and spent 12 long years being trained in ‘theology’ by Franciscan and Jesuit priests, nuns and bishops. I can assure you that the theology of the Roman Catholic Church has next to nothing in common with Bible doctrine and teaching, except where it mimics it for it’s own purposes. But I am glad to see Pope Francis continuing his quest to merge the Roman Catholic Church with all the religions and atheists of the world. I’m sure it’s a relief for him on some level to ‘come out of the closet’ and stop pretending he’s a Christian. He absolutely is not.

Pope Francis calls for ‘paradigm shift’ in theology for world of today

FROM THE CATHOLIC NEWS AGENCY: Citing the need to deal with “profound cultural transformations,” the pope presented his dramatic vision for the future of Catholic theology in a new motu proprio issued earlier today. Titled Ad Theologiam Promovendam, or “to promote theology,” the document revises the statutes of the Pontifical Academy of Theology (PATH) “to make them more suitable for the mission that our time imposes on theology.”

“Theology can only develop in a culture of dialogue and encounter between different traditions and different knowledge, between different Christian confessions and different religions, openly engaging with everyone, believers and nonbelievers,” the pope wrote in the apostolic letter.

Pope Francis wrote that Catholic theology must experience a “courageous cultural revolution” in order to become a “fundamentally contextual theology.” Guided by Christ’s incarnation into time and space, this approach to theology must be capable of reading and interpreting “the Gospel in the conditions in which men and women live daily, in different geographical, social, and cultural environments,” the pope wrote.

The pope contrasted this approach with a theology that is limited to “abstractly re-proposing formulas and schemes from the past” and repeated his long-standing criticism of “desk bound theology.” Instead, he emphasized that theological studies must be open to the world, not as a “‘tactical’ attitude” but as a profound “turning point” in their method, which he said must be “inductive.”

Pope Francis emphasized that this bottom-up re-envisioning of theology is necessary to better aid the Church’s evangelizing mission.

“A synodal, missionary, and ‘outgoing’ Church can only correspond to an ‘outgoing’ theology,” the pope wrote.

Relatedly, the pope said, this dialogical approach can allow theology to “broaden the boundaries” of scientific reasoning, allowing it to overcome dehumanizing tendencies.
‘Transdisciplinary’ and pastoral

To achieve this “‘outgoing’ theology,” Pope Francis wrote that theology must become “transdisciplinary,” part of a “web of relationships, first of all with other disciplines and other knowledge.” This engagement, he wrote, leads to “the arduous task” of theologians making use of “new categories developed by other knowledge” in order to “penetrate and communicate the truths of faith and transmit the teaching of Jesus in today’s languages, with originality and critical awareness.”

Pope Francis also wrote that priority must be given to “the knowledge of people’s ‘common sense,’” which he described as a “theological source in which many images of God live, often not corresponding to the Christian face of God, only and always love.”

The pope said that this “pastoral stamp” must be placed upon all of Catholic theology. Described as “popular theology,” by starting from “the different contexts and concrete situations in which people are inserted” and allowing itself “to be seriously challenged by reality,” theological reflection can aid in the discernment of the “signs of the times,” the pope wrote.

“Theology places itself at the service of the evangelization of the Church and the transmission of faith, so that faith becomes culture; that is, the wise ethos of the people of God, a proposal of human and humanizing beauty for all,” the pope wrote.

The pope’s shift in emphasis in Catholic theology was reflected in the new statutes issued for the Pontifical Academy of Theology. Ad Theologiam Promovendam shifted the 200-year-old institute’s focus from “promoting the dialogue between reason and faith” to promoting “transdisciplinary dialogue with philosophies, sciences, arts, and all other knowledge.” The new statutes place PATH “at the service of academic institutions dedicated to theology and other cultural and knowledge development centers interested in reaching the human person in his context of life and thought.”

The change was welcomed by PATH’s president, Bishop Antonio Staglianò.

“Pope Francis entrusts our Pontifical Academy with a new mission: that of promoting, in every area of knowledge, discussion, and dialogue in order to reach and involve all of the people of God in theological research so that the life of the people becomes theological life,” the Italian prelate said in a press release.

The new statutes call for PATH to facilitate collaboration between Catholic theologians and “those of other Christian confessions or religions.”

The academy will also “‘network’ with universities and centers of production of culture and thought” and explore “culturally qualified” ways to propose the Gospel as a life guide to even atheists, a process described in the PATH press release as “wisdom dissemination.”

In harmony with “the magisterium of Pope Francis,” under the new statutes PATH will also exercise a commitment to “intellectual charity” by focusing on the questions and needs of those “on the existential peripheries.” READ MORE

Shock As Huge Section Of Cell Phone Service Across America Goes Down Leaving People To Ask Is It A Solar Flare Or Possibly EMP Attack?

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

AT&T, Cricket Wireless, FirstNet, Verizon, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Boost Mobile, Consumer Cellular and Straight Talk are all down across the US, leaving customers unable to make calls

Citizens all across America got a shock this morning when their mobile phone service went down and out for the count with 54% of all users surveyed saying their service was strongly affected, and a third saying they have no service at all. As I write this, I am one of those people with no service, the ominous SOS sign where my signal used to be. What’s behind all of this? It will be interesting to hear the explanation when it finally comes, but I have a few ideas.

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;” Luke 21:25 (KJB)

As we have been telling you for many months, 2024 is a year of continuing momentous change, every bit as much that 2020 was, albeit for different reasons. Whatever the final explanation is on this whole mess, it is highly likely that they pulled the system intentionally. Service outages of this magnitude just don’t ‘happen’, they are planned. EMP, solar flares, there are many things capable of disrupting the system, and as we get closer to the election, be prepared for many more such ‘disruptions’, because they’re coming.

AT&T down with iPhones stuck in SOS mode as people say ‘world is ending’

FROM THE SUN US: Multiple mobile networks including AT&T have gone down across the US with iPhones stuck on SOS mode, leaving panicked customers fearing the ‘end of the world’. Concerned folk across the US are facing major disruptions to their service as several providers have gone down. The outage has caused major disruptions with several police departments warning that people have been unable to call or text 911.

According to Downdetector, AT&T, Cricket Wireless, FirstNet, Verizon, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Boost Mobile, Consumer Cellular and Straight Talk are all down. People have taken to X, formerly Twitter, to voice their concern at the major disruption to US mobile networks.

One user wrote: “Confirmation from around the US on a nationwide cellular network outage. Seems to have affected @ATT first, then later reports from other phones on @TMobile @Verizon and more.

“I can’t imagine this is incompetence or a single node failure. Concerned it could be a #cyberattack.”

Other AT&T customers have reported their iPhones being stuck in ‘SOS’ mode as a result of the outage.

 iPhones enter SOS mode when they lose cellular connection, allowing users to still make SOS calls or texts to emergency services on models from the iPhone 13 onwards.

Many X users have grown suspicious of the mass outage impacting so many major providers at once.

One user wrote: “Got the “sos” mode and thought the world was ending.”

Another said: “Anyone else experiencing these “SOS only” outages on @ATT? Is the world ending?”

A third asked: “OK conspiracy theorists and smart people who know more than me…what is behind the cell carrier outage overnight?”

While a fourth added: “AI bots failing… AT&T down… it’s happening folks.” READ MORE

HIS KINGDOM COME? Prince William Makes Startling Announcement About Gaza War Leading Royal Watchers To Suspect He’s Preparing To Be King

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

Israel has responded to Prince William’s statement over the Gaza conflict, saying the country also wants to see an end to the fighting. Is he preparing to be king?

King Charles III was shockingly diagnosed with cancer a few weeks ago, with the Palace being typically tight-lipped about his prognosis, and not revealing many details. But if the recent announcements of Prince William are an indicator, a transition is being talked about if not already actively in the planning stage.

“Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.” Psalm 20:9 (KJB)

The announcement published by Prince William calls for an end to the war in Gaza, a release of the hostages and increased aid. It was a very royal, and kingly, statement to make for the prince who seems destined to higher office. Nothing that happens in politics, in any nation, is by accident or coincidence, and it sure looks like England is preparing themselves for a new king.

Israel responds to Prince William’s shock statement over Gaza conflict – as experts claim well-choreographed intervention shows he plans to be a hands-on King

FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: The Prince of Wales, 41, ramped up his family’s response to the Israel-Hamas war after he and wife Kate had earlier put out a joint statement of ‘distress’. The heir to the throne expressed how his family was ‘deeply concerned’ about its ‘human cost’ in an impassioned statement just hours after Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer called for an ‘immediate humanitarian ceasefire’.

It comes as royal experts say that his well-choreographed call for an end to the Gaza conflict showed he plans to be a hands-on King – while MPs have questioned whether King Charles knew about his son’s statement before it was released. The comment comes just the day before MPs will debate and vote on an SNP measure calling for an unqualified ‘immediate ceasefire’ to end the bloodshed, even if Israeli hostages are not returned.

Labour has added an amendment as it also calls for an ‘immediate humanitarian ceasefire’, adding a string of caveats to the demand.

A spokesperson for the Israeli Defence Forces said: ‘Israelis of course want to see an end to the fighting as soon as possible and that will be possible once the 134 hostages are released and once the Hamas terror army threatening to repeat the October 7 atrocities is dismantled.

‘We appreciate the Prince of Wales’ call for Hamas to free the hostages. We also recall with gratitude his statement from October 11 condemning Hamas’ terror attacks and reaffirming Israel’s right of self defence against them.’

Conservative MPs were wary of publicly criticising Prince William but some questioned the royal’s ‘highly political’ message, calling his intervention ‘unwise’. But royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams said today’s intervention was evidence that William was following elements of his father Charles’ ‘outspoken’ approach to issues of the day.

He told MailOnline: ‘The language William used in this statement was very stark.

‘William has not been outspoken in the same way as Charles and tends to behave more like the Queen by being very circumspect.

‘But he can be outspoken in very specific circumstances when he knows his words will carry weight.

‘So while their style is very different, there something in his father in the way he made this statement.

‘Over time we will judge how his style develops.’

Mr Fitzwilliams added that William was ‘following in his father’s footsteps’ by showing his interest interfaith relations. The Prince’s statement insisted ‘too many have been killed’ since Hamas’s terrorist attack on Israel on 7 October last year. READ MORE
