Pope Francis Calls for Dialogue Between the World’s Religions

kenneth copeland and pope frencis

In this video you will see Pope Francis calling for dialogue and unity between the world’s religions. But this is nothing new. Many previous Popes have called for the unification of the world’s religions as well as the formation of a New World Order. Pope Francis elsewhere refers to what he calls the “miracle of unity” which has allegedly been started by God. But on close inspection, this “miracle of unity” is based on what he refers to as love – rather than on doctrinal agreement of what constitutes Christianity.

It should be obvious why doctrine will not form the basis of the new age one world antichrist religion – because it is impossible to unite different world religions in this manner. The reason for this is even more self-evident. All other religions (spiritual paths) reject the claims of Jesus – that He alone is the Way, the Truth and the Life – and that no man can come to the Father, or will see the Father, unless we enter the Kingdom of God through Jesus Christ.

It should now become evident what Jesus meant when he stated:

“Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.” (Matthew 10: 32-34) KJV

How can it be possible to unite with other religions that deny that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life? Simple – just change the focus from the most central topic in the Bible – man’s need for salvation, to us all loving each other, and simply getting along – despite our doctrinal differences. This (claims the Papacy) is after all what God desires of us. Really? Not according to the Bible. The concept of unity spoken of in the Bible is between true believers who are in the faith and who all subscribe to sound Biblical doctrine.

“Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son.” (1 John 2:22)

It’s simply a matter of agreement with truth. Either we agree with the Bible and what Jesus says of himself, or we agree with the Roman Catholic Church and all other religions that contradict the Bible. Jesus claim is unequivocal – there is simply no other name or way by which man can be saved. This is not a matter for debate – it is simply a fact. No amount of dialogue and clever manipulation can change the facts. But as always, Satan seeks to elevate his demonic doctrines of lies and deception above the Word of God. It is in this context that God’s people perish for lack of knowledge. According to the Bible, Ignorance of God’s Word is not bliss. It is in fact extremely harmful because it determines our eternal spiritual state and destiny.

Pope Francis declares that most of the inhabitants on the planet are believers

But unfortunately he does not spell out what they believe in or what his definition of believers is. Watch this video to hear the Pope’s appeal for dialogue and unity between various faiths. In this video, those who claim that they are all for unity with other religions, also make it clear that they serve other so-called gods – and certainly not the God of the Bible.

In this video Pope Francis states: “Most of the planets inhabitants declare themselves believers. This should lead to dialogue among religions. We should not stop praying for it and collaborating with those who think differently.”

This unity is not based on a common belief in Jesus Christ

We see from the video that the unity and dialogue being promoted between various religions is not based on Jesus Christ or the Christian gospel. It is based on Universalism (a spiritual concoction of all so-called spiritual paths which allegedly lead to “god”).

  • Rinchen Kandra (Buddhist) then says “I have confidence in Buddha.” [In no way can Buddhism be reconciled with Christian beliefs.]
  • Daniel Goldman (Jew) says “I believe in God” [Judaism denies the deity of Jesus Christ.]
  • Guillermo Marco (Catholic Priest) says: “I believe in Jesus Christ.” [but Catholics also worship Mary The Queen of Heaven, pray to dead people, worship god-men called Popes, and Catholic priests claim they have the power to forgive sins etc.]
  • Omar Abbovid (Islamic Leader) says: “I believe in God, Allah.” [Islam is the complete antithesis of Christianity and denies the deity of Jesus Christ.]

The Pope continues: “Many think differently, feel differently, seeking God or meeting God in different ways. In this crowd, in this range of religious ways, there is only one certainty we have for all: we are all children of God.”

The respondents in the video then all proclaim what is professed to be the unifying truth between these different religions – LOVE. They all say – “I believe in love.”

Now there is a problem with this logic. Either all religions ultimately believe in the same god or they do not. If they do, then the god in whom we all allegedly believe would have a clear identify and the teachings of the deity would be distinct and harmonious between all religions or spiritual paths. But the opposite is true. Religions other than Christianity contradict and oppose (for example) the teachings of the Bible. Who then has decided that all religions worship the same god when it is self-evident based on a study of these religions that they worship gods who are in fact different to the God of the Bible? The implication is therefore that religious or spiritual doctrine cannot be the basis for spiritual unity if other religions teach a different “gospel ” to that of the Bible. This then leaves us with no other choice but to choose something else that we claim unifies us – preferably something subjective, let’s say for example “love.” After all – who does not want to love or be loved? But the Bible says that God is love – God (Jehovah) personifies love and it because of His great love for fallen humanity that He sent His only Son Jesus to die for our sins and restore us spiritually.

Unfortunately, simply saying that we all believe in love does, not clarify anything or solve any theological difficulties. It does not clarify what we believe and does not address the crucial question of our need for salvation. Clearly then, this video demonstrates that what allegedly unites self-proclaimed “believers” [who admit in this video that their beliefs are not Christ-centric], is in fact not Christ but some vague notion described as love. But true Christianity and the Gospel of the Kingdom of God and that found in the Bible IS Christ-centric. So much so in fact, that we are told in no uncertain terms by Jesus Himself that there is simply no other way to God the Father and to enter into the Kingdom of God,  but through the acceptance and profession of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. Either the Bible is wrong or the Pope is wrong – they cannot both be right.

Bishop Tony Palmer and Kenneth Copeland Ministries

In the next video, you will see Bishop Tony Palmer (now deceased) deliver a seductive message to a leadership convention hosted by Kenneth Copeland. Study this video very carefully to get a better understanding of the great deception at work here.

There are many deceptive arguments in this video as put forth by Tony Palmer. This is typical of how seductive and sly Satan can be. Palmer uses a combination of distorted facts, illogical arguments and theological sleight of hand in an attempt to lure the unwary Pentecostal Protestants back into the Catholic fold.  The end result is that Kenneth Copeland agrees to accept the Pope’s offer to reunite with Rome, and undertake a visit to the Vatican (which he later did).

The Man of God and the Word of God

Let me conclude by quoting 2 Timothy 3:10-17

10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, 11 persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra—what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
