Yes, that is the Pope, not he’s not playing “patty-cake,” he is high-fiveing Pentecostal, Charismatic, false teacher James Roberson.
The Pope has had some big wigs from the American Apostate Church visit him lately.
2 Corinthians 6:14-18
14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
18And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”
I don’t believe this verse applies here at all! In fact I posted it adjacent to this picture of the Pope sitting amongst false teachers for a reason, God commands us not to be “unequally yoked,” here they are all equally wicked and perverse. Both are darkness and hence share communion with each other. Believer!! Please do not be deceived. The Pentecostal, word of faith, name and claim it heretics that met up with the pope are not obedient Christians. These people already fleece the flock, now they do so openly with the Catholic Church who elevates “men” just as they do in their false doctrines. This is not a shock to my eyes to witness such perversion. Many news outlets including Christian ones are proclaiming this event as historical and monumental that the Pope is reaching out and trying to reconcile these “waywards” back into the fold (of the Roman Catholic Church) not to assimilate them in, but rather to keep them in their own apostasy and to merely acknowledge that “we all love Jesus.” The one who helped organize this meeting is trying to give the illusion of oneness based on common love for God (Jesus) and love for our neighbor.
The Catholics proclaim they are Christian. The Mormons proclaim, they too, are Christian. But I tell you I’m a Christian and I’m NOT Catholic, and I’m NOT Mormon, and to me they are NOT Christian. Now guess who sounds like a narrow minded, pig headed, divisive person? Me!
“The world is suffering,” said Robison. “We as Christians have too much love to share without fighting one another.”
Mr. Robison said he and other “respected Evangelical leaders and Spirit-filled Catholics began meeting together to pray for God’s will to be done and to bring true believers together in supernatural unity….We have been commanded to love God with all of our heart and our neighbors as ourselves. The enemy has kept many Christians from loving one another as Christ loves us and have failed to recognize the importance of supernatural unity even with all of the unique diversity.”
Make No Mistake this didn’t happen over night. This meeting was 10 years in the making. The young priest on the right worked for Kennith Copeland (left of Pope Francis) who went on to convert to Catholicism and receive funding from Kennith Copeland to “minister and evangelize” to the Catholics. “Brother Palmer” went on to form a friendship with then Jesuit priest Jorge Mario Bergoglio, today’s Pope Francis, which would lend invaluable in gathering more “sheep” to the fold (RCC).
Except from Canada Free Press:
In addition to Mrs. Betty Robison, the high-profile Protestant delegation included Kenneth Copeland, co-founder of Kenneth Copeland Ministries in Newark, TX; Reverend Geoff Tunnicliff, CEO of the World Evangelical Alliance; Rev. Brian Stiller and Rev. Thomas Schirrmacher, also from the World Evangelical Alliance; and Rev. John Arnott and his wife, Carol, co-founders of Partners for Harvest ministries in Toronto, Canada. Gloria Copeland did not travel to Rome because of a previously scheduled commitment.
The ecumenical meeting in Rome was organized by Episcopal Bishop Tony Palmer. Rev. Palmer is an ordained bishop in the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches, a break-away alliance of charismatic Anglican-Episcopal churches. Bishop Palmer is also the Director of The Ark Community, an international interdenominational Convergent Church online community, and is a member of the Roman Catholic Ecumenical Delegation for Christian Unity and Reconciliation.
Bishop Palmer developed a friendship with Pope Francis when the future Roman Pontiff was a Catholic official in Argentina. Prior to becoming a CEEC bishop, Rev. Palmer was the director of the Kenneth Copeland Ministries’ office in South Africa. He is married to an Italian Roman Catholic woman. He later moved to Italy and began working to reconcile Roman Catholics and Protestants. Kenneth Copeland Ministries was one of Mr. Palmer’s first financial contributors over 10 years ago in support of his ecumenical work in Italy.” End quote Link to full article
All we need is “Love.” Is that all the Pope wants? Is that all the Charismatics want?
“Pentecostal and charismatic Christians – charismatics are often Pentecostals in other churches, including the Catholic Church — share much in common, such as speaking in tongues and healing. Together, they make up at least 584 million people in the world, about 9 percent of the global population and one in four Christians worldwide, according to the Pew Research Center.
Since I don’t follow false teachers actions in general, I try to avoid them like the bible tells me, I didn’t know that Joel Osteen also had a visit with the Pope. I found that out doing the background work on this post. Joel Osteen, the man with nary a discerning bone in his body. The Texas Mega Pastor, a close second would be John Haggee who probably has met with the Pope too but we just don’t know about it; Joel Osteen who refuses to assert biblical truth with Larry King on CNN–we’ve all seen that video right? Ol’ Joel, met up with the Pope, another mega pastor.
“Osteen’s meeting with Francis on June 4 was part of a larger gathering coordinated by the International Foundation, also known as “the Fellowship.” Osteen was joined by Utah Sen. Mike Lee, a Mormon; California pastor Tim Timmons; and Gayle D. Beebe, president of evangelical Westmont College.
The June 24 meeting leaned particularly toward charismatic Christianity. Other guests were Anthony Palmer, a bishop and international ecumenical officer with the independent Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches; Geoff Tunnicliffe, the outgoing head of the Worldwide Evangelical Alliance; and John and Carol Arnott of Catch the Fire Toronto, which grew out of a Pentecostal revival 20 years ago.” Excerpt from RNS click for full article
Brian Stiller, left of Kenneth Copeland, in the picture above with the whole group says this about his meeting with the Pope:
“Stiller says Pope Francis is interested in dialogue with Evangelicals, but he doesn’t want to convert them.
Francis has also shown a great openness to evangelicals. According to his understanding of evangelism asked the Pope replied that he was not interested in converting evangelicals to Catholicism. He wished that people find Jesus in their own community.Instead of a lot of time to spend with the debate about different schools of thought, one should focus on “love to show Jesus”.
