Pope Francis Is Ruthlessly Purging Roman Cardinals Who Oppose His Pro-LGBTQ+ Mandates As He Continues To Create The Affirming Catholic Church

Pope Francis has kicked conservative US Cardinal Raymond Burke out of his Vatican apartment and stripped him of his salary after he criticized the pontiff’s pro-LGBTQ+ stance.

By this point, it is obvious that the Roman Catholic Church, started by the Caesars during the time of the closing days of the Roman Empire, is taking a page from the book of Gaius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, better known as Caligula, and transitioning into being LGBTQ+ affirming under the leadership of Pope Francis. US Cardinal Raymond Burke just found out the hard way that going against the pope’s affirming mandates comes at a cost.

For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.” Revelation 17:17,18 (KJB)

The Roman Catholic Church is not part of the falling away, because it has been a counterfeit from its inception in 325 AD. They’ve never taught Bible doctrine so there is nothing for them to ‘fall away’ from. What they are doing right now is preparing themselves to be ruled over by the coming Antichrist, by gathering all religions into one in anticipation of his soon arrival.

Pope Francis kicks conservative US Cardinal Raymond Burke out of his Vatican apartment and strips him of his salary after he criticized pontiff’s pro-LGBTQ+ stance

FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: Francis has decided to punish Burke by revoking his right to a subsidized Vatican apartment and salary in the second such radical action against an American prelate this month, according to two sources. It is understood Francis told a meeting of the heads of Vatican offices last week that he was moving against Burke because he was a source of ‘disunity’ in the church, said one of the participants at the November 20 meeting.

Burke’s privileges of having a subsidized Vatican apartment and salary as a retired cardinal have been removed because he was using the benefits against the church, said another person who was subsequently briefed on the pope´s measures. Both insiders spoke on the condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to reveal the details.

Burke has not received any notification of measures being taken, his secretary said in a text message Tuesday to The Associated Press.

Burke, a 75-year-old canon lawyer whom Francis had fired as the Vatican’s high court justice in 2014, has become one of the most outspoken critics of the pope, his outreach to LGBTQ+ Catholics and his reform project to make the church more responsive to the needs of ordinary faithful. Twice, Burke has joined other conservative cardinals in issuing formal questions to the pontiff, known as ‘dubia,’ asking him to clarify questions of doctrine that upset conservatives and traditionalists.

In the first, they asked Francis to clarify his outreach to divorced and civilly remarried Catholics, and Francis never replied. In the second, they asked whether same-sex couples could receive church blessings – and received a conditional maybe in response.

Then, on the eve of Francis´ big meeting of bishops last month, known as a synod, Burke presided over a counter-synod of sorts just steps away from St. Peter´s Square. There, Burke delivered a stinging rebuke of Francis´ vision of ‘synodality’ as well as his overall reform project for the church.

‘It´s unfortunately very clear that the invocation of the Holy Spirit by some has the aim of bringing forward an agenda that is more political and human than ecclesial and divine,’ Burke told the conference titled ‘The Synodal Babel.’

Burke has always defended his actions as being of service to the church and the papacy, saying it was his obligation as a cardinal and bishop to uphold church teaching and correct errors. READ MORE

Pope Francis Welcomes Group Of Transgender ‘Women’ To A Luncheon At The Vatican As He Continues To Affirm LGBTQ+ People As Roman Catholics

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

Pope Francis welcomed a group of transgender women at a recent Vatican lunch who were helped during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Let me start off by saying that if Christian preachers want to invite a group of transgenders to have lunch at the church, I think that’s a great idea if the plan is to show them God’s love and give them Paul’s gospel of repentance at the same time. That’s something I could see NTEB taking a part in one day as an evangelical outreach to lost people. But that’s is absolutely not what Pope Francis did the other day in Rome when he invited a group of transgender women to break bread with him.

And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publickly, and from house to house, Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.” Acts 20:20,21 (KJB)

We reported to you back in 2020 how that Pope Francis was a huge supporter of transgenders in Argentina, writing a letter of encouragement to Sister Monica who worked with them there. The pope wrote to her saying “Dear Monica, God who did not go to the seminary or study theology will reward you abundantly. I pray for you and your girls.” Pope Francis has no interest is seeing transgenders getting saved, in fact he doesn’t even know how that could be accomplished, but what he does have an interest in is confirming the members of the LGBTQ+ community in their sins as he welcomes them as ‘good Catholics’ into the Roman Church.

Transgender woman are men, lost men who desperately need someone to give them the gospel and show them how to be saved. Will you give it to them? Pope Francis will not.

Pope Francis hosts group of transgender women for lunch at The Vatican: ‘People often forget about us’

FROM YAHOO! NEWS: The head of the Catholic Church formed a bond with Torvaianica’s trans community during Italy’s strict Covid lockdown. Sex workers showed up at the church of Rev. Andrea Conocchia, when they lost all source of income. In a video shared by Associated Press, women travelled via coach to from the community to Rome to have lunch with him at The Vatican.

One of the attendees, named Mirta Rios, shared:

“I was not expecting this. I never would have expected this! I am very happy. Thanks to God and to him and all those who helped is un the pandemic when we were in bad shape. On top of that, he is Argentinian like me!”

Another guest, named Jessica Quintero, added: “It’s beautiful for us trans [women] because we are forgotten.

“It’s a great pleasure, and a moral boost for us because people often forget about us.”

Two of the trans women, Claudia Vittoria Salas and Laura Esquival, were amongst those who were given a seat at the Pope’s table. It comes as the latest display from Pope Francis of his support for the LGBTQ+ community.

Earlier this month, it was confirmed transgender people will be able to act as godparents, witnesses at religious weddings and receive baptisms.

In June, the Pope told ayoung transgender person, “God loves us all,” earlier this summer, while he spoke to a group of young people in an episode of The Vatican’s podcast series titled Popecast, He listened to several stories including from someone called Giona. They detailed being “torn by the dichotomy between [their Catholic] faith and transgender identity.”

Pope Francis replied: “The Lord always walks with us… Even if we are sinners, he draws near to help us. The Lord loves us as we are, this is God’s crazy love.”

Since being appointed as the head of the Catholic Church in 2013, Pope Francis has adopted a (comparatively) more inclusive stance towards LGBTQ people than his predecessors. In 2017 he went so far as to say that the Church should “apologise” to gay people. READ MORE

A community of trans women from a seaside town south of Rome has have forged a remarkable friendship with the pontiff.

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

Published

on

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

INFALLIBLE: Pope Francis Tells A Young Transgender Person That God Loves Them Just As They Are, Affirming The LGBTQIA Lifestyle And Agenda

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

God loves us just as we are, Pope Francis tells a young transgender person in a new podcast produced by Vatican Radio ahead of World Youth Day in Lisbon and released on Tuesday.

Where does it take you if, your whole life, you are a good Catholic who follows the Catholic Church, prays to the ‘Blessed Virgin’, and believes everything they’re taught? It takes you straight to the pit of Hell because at no point during your Catholic life will any priest, bishop, monsignor or pope tell you how to get saved and become born again. The LGBTQIA+ affirming Pope Francis this week consigned a transgender soul to Hell after telling them they didn’t need to change, and that ‘God loves you just as you are’. What does the Bible say? It says the opposite. The pope is quite the liar.

“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 (KJB)

When you were born, you were conceived in sin and created in the image of fallen Adam. Too harsh? Nope, go read Psalm 51:5 and Genesis 5:3 in your King James Bible for the scoop on that. You are not a child of God until you become born again, according to Galatians 3:26. Does God love the sinner ‘just as they are’? The short answer is no, your first birth is no good. The longer answer is that there was a day where God did demonstrate His love to save sinners, and that day was the day Jesus shed God’s blood on the cross to make a payment for sin. Think about it, God said there was a way for sinners to be made clean, but only through the death, burial and resurrection of His only begotten son Jesus. But outside of that, if you don’t become born again, God doesn’t love you. Read Psalm 2:1-7 and see. To tell a transgender or any other sinner that God loves them ‘just as they are’ is to consign that soul to the flames of Hell. No amount of holy water, Lent or crossing yourself ‘tic-tac-toe, three in a row’ will change that.

God loves us as we are – Pope to young transgender person

FROM ANSA NEWS: ‘The Lord always accompanies us, always. Even if we are sinners, He draws near to help us,” said the pope after hearing the story of Giona, who spoke about the challenges of being a believer, while accepting the reality of having physical challenges and being transgender.

“God loves us just as we are,” he added.

“Do not give up, keep striving ahead.” In the Italian language ‘popecast’, Francis also had words of encouragement for Edward and Valerij, who are both serving time in a juvenile correctional community, and for Arianna who struggles with bipolar disorder.

World Youth Day 2023 will take place in the Portuguese capital from August 1-6. READ MORE
