Pope Francis told Christian high school students this weekend they should respect people of other faiths and not attempt to convert them to Christianity, insisting “we are not living in the times of the crusades.”
Now we know that Catholics are not Christians, they are Roman Catholics after all, just as we know the Vatican system will be the fulfillment of the Whore of Babylon from Revelation 17 and 18 during the time of Jacob’s trouble. But here at the holiday season, in the spirit of brotherly love, let’s just for the briefest of moments say that the Roman Catholic Church is a denomination of Christianity. Let your imagination wander wildly when you do that. Now, have that picture in your mind? Pope Francis has just proved once again why we call him the Antichrist.
“I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.” 2 Timothy 4:1,2 (KJV)
Pope Francis has once again renewed his credentials as a destroyer of the faith “once delivered to the saints” by telling his 1.5 billion
Roman Catholic Christian followers that they are not, under any circumstances to “convince others of the truth of Christianity” but to instead “wait for others to ask” about their faith. This, of course, flies in the face of just about everything taught in the New Testament, in any dispensation, about the command for all Christians to boldly witness the gospel so that others might be converted and become born again. So why would Pope Francis say this? For a number of reasons.
“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 2:14-16 (KJV)
First and foremost, Pope Francis is unsaved and does not have the Holy Spirit residing inside him, and that is why when he speaks about the Bible he sounds like a lost person because he is a lost person. Pray for his salvation. Secondly, in the 1,694 years that the Roman Catholic Church has been in existence, sacraments and traditions of men have been substituted for the clear and simple teachings of the Bible. This means that the vast majority of Roman Catholics who followed what their priests have told them to do in order to be “good Catholics” has resulted in them dying in their lost condition and going straight to Hell. Third, this is why Pope Francis constantly says that we are all “children of God” because he doesn’t understand that the Bible says we only become God’s children when we have saving faith in Christ Jesus alone. Jews, Muslims and Hindus do not have faith in Jesus so that automatically excludes them.
“For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:26 (KJV)
I was a “good Catholic” for the first 29 years of my life, and had I died in that condition as a “good Catholic” I would be in Hell right now. But I remember the day I got on my knees with a King James Bible opened to John 3:16, and asked God to save me…and He did! If you’re a Catholic, God can save you too, you don’t have to go to the Hell that Pope Francis is working so hard to put you in. Click here to read how YOU can be saved.
Pope Francis Tells Christians Not to Try to Convert Nonbelievers
FROM BREITBART NEWS: Asked by one of the students Friday how a Christian should treat people of other faiths or no faith, the pope said that “we are all the same, all children of God” and that true disciples of Jesus do not proselytize.

Pope Francis said that his experience growing up in Argentina with its waves of immigration was a great help in learning to respect other people.
“There is a mixture of blood, a strong miscegenation in Argentina — I am the son of a migrant — and this made for a culture of coexistence,” he said. “I went to public school and we always had companions from other religions. We were educated to coexistence.”
“This taught me a lot, that we are all the same, all children of God and this purifies your gaze, it humanizes it,” he said. “In Argentina, there is a small group of narrow-minded Catholics who do not want Jews, do not want Muslims but this group, I never liked it, it is a fringe group, they have a cultural magazine but they do not have impact in society and when I used to teach I saw them for what they were, this is the secret.”
Pope Francis went on to say that a Christian should never try to convince others of the truth of Christianity, but should simply give a testimony of consistency and wait for others to ask about the faith.
“You must be consistent with your faith,” he said. “It never occurred to me (and nor should it) to say to a boy or a girl: ‘You are Jewish, you are Muslim: come, be converted!’ You be consistent with your faith and that consistency is what will make you mature. We are not living in the times of the crusades.”
“The last thing I should do is to try to convince an unbeliever. Never,” he said. “The last thing I should do is speak. I should live my faith with consistency. And it will be my witness that will awaken the curiosity of the other who may then ask: ‘But why do you do this?’ And yes, then I can speak.”
“But listen, the gospel is never, ever advanced through proselytism,” he continued. “If someone says he is a disciple of Jesus and comes to you with proselytism, he is not a disciple of Jesus. Proselytism is not the way; the Church does not grow by proselytism.” READ MORE
