Pope’s Apology to Islam

This is fiction, ok. Like if someone slipped the pope some “truth serum” here is what might come out of his mouth:

“My dear Muslim brothers, please accept my apology for criticizing your religion, because I now realize that my religion is actually far worse than anything I’ve accused you of,  because we have committed our evils under the banner of Jesus Christ. What could be more evil than that? 

Let’s agree together that slaughtering innocent people is evil, and religion can never justify it.

At least you don’t bow down to idols like we do, something that at least you folk realize is an abomination to God. We know that under God’s Holy law, engraved in stone by the Finger of God, anyone caught bowing down to an idol or statue was publicly executed by stoning. But we have become a law unto ourselves, and have become so great, spreading out all over the earth, that who can challenge our authority in these things?

The money-loving evangelical leaders won’t make a peep. They know they can’t beat us, so they’ve joined us. They have “caught our vision” of a one-world super religion that will be “the Kingdom of God filling all the earth”. Now, yes, its easy to promote this super-religion when YOU are one of the beneficiaries, raking in the moolah. Sure beats working for a living, eh! And the perks!

And I must confess its been a boon for my self-esteem since I was crowned pope, to have millions of people idolizing me. But why? What have I done to deserve this adulation? One moment I’m a nobody, the next I’m king of the earth! Why? How could people be so stupid? Who has blinded their eyes from seeing that I’m just as lost as them? Maybe it’s the fancy-dress costume and all the hoopla, holy-smoke and mumbo-jumbo in Latin that gets them! I don’t know, but whatever it is it works, and that’s the main thing, isn’t it? And all my evangelical brothers said, Amen!

But, after all, I’m the Holy Father, how could I be wrong? And who would have enough real Christian character to correct me to my face and tell me that I’m a liar and that my organization is corrupt? Billy didn’t. No guts, that’s the problem. They love the praise of men more than the praise of God, just like me, that’s why we get on so well. Anyway, how could a billion people be wrong? Surely this is the proof that God is on our side.

Anyway, its not a big deal to bow down to an idol, or to pray to the dead, or to sacrifice Jesus afresh on our altars everyday. It’s not a big deal. It makes people feel good and gives them a feeling of peace, of transcendence. The ends justifies the means. It makes us feel we are atoning for our sins. How else can we be free from the terrible guilt that we carry? Anyway, there’s no sure guaranteed promise of eternal life, we just have to keep on trying to do good, and keep our fingers crossed. In this matter we are one with you, my Muslim brothers, and with all “the community of faith and goodwill” from every religion, for we all worship the same God.

Now, yes, you Muslims have to admit that you’ve done, and are still doing, your fair share of killing and slaughter in the name of Jihad. But don’t forget that the fabulously wealthy multi-national organization of which I’m the CEO has also slaughtered millions of people over the centuries, and we’ve killed our fair share of Muslims as well. We are actually more similar than we are different. We really are one, but we just don’t realize it yet. 

We tortured and butchered the heretics who challenged our authority. If they possessed a Bible or got re-baptized we used to flay their skin off, and all sorts of diabolical tortures, and of course we burned thousands of these heretics at the stake. Our bishops would watch in glee to see and hear the screams and the writhing in agony. How would it feel to be burned alive? Imagine if you as a child watched your Godly mother or father being burned alive? How would you feel? It’s all well documented. And not to mention all the Jews we persecuted and killed over the centuries, even up to our complicity in assisting the Nazis into power. We agreed with “the final solution”, and for centuries we called the Jews “Christ-killers”. And did you know that our Cardinals wear red colored costumes to celebrate and justify all the blood we have shed in Jesus’ name!  Yes, it’s true. But people are too stupid to question the morality of these things.

Of course, those things are all in the past. Now we have the issues of pedophile and homosexual priests to deal with. Of course, we’re trying hard to keep the lid on all this stuff, but the “genie is out of the bottle” now, and we weep over all the money its costing us in lawsuits. It’s enough to bring tears to our accountants eyes. What if the Jews sue us for our part in the Holocaust?  The world sees the pomp, ceremony and splendor of Rome, but underneath, in secret, is every filthy abominable thing.

And we’re well connected to the Mafia and underworld crime. But thank God for the confessional. Those guys would be up the creek if it wasn’t for the confessional booth.   ……. I know what you’re thinking! Don’t judge us now!!  Jesus said that, didn’t he? And also don’t mention about all our members who are into voodoo and witchcraft in Latin America and in Africa. So many millions of our Church members practice spiritism, and get possessed with demons. But God is merciful and we need the money. Unity is powerful, yes it is, we’re proof of that.

So, my Muslim brothers, please read the comments I made about Islam being a violent religion in the context of all these sins I’m confessing to you now. We the Catholics are just as much sinners as anyone else. Underneath the surface, no matter what religion we belong to, we are all sinners and practice all types of uncleaness, corruption and debauchery. 

The only difference is that we are right and you are wrong.

Yours faithfully,

Pope Benedict.”

And the moral of this fictional apology is that the Pope, as head of the Catholic organization, has no moral authority to speak out on anything. How dare he criticize Muslims for violence, when we consider the Catholic organization’s violent history of slaughters, genocide, torture, persecution, racism and corruption. This also highlights the fact that Christian leaders who support the Catholic organization, whilst aware of its corruption, are therefore morally compromised and have no credibility. 

We live in momentous times. Jesus is calling His people out of Babylon : out of false christianity : God separating light from darkness.

2 Thess. 2:10b-12  ……..they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
 

I would say to any Christian who doesn’t care about the issues raised in this article, and who is not sickened by the hypocrisy and evils of Catholicism, or of any organization that goes by the name of Christ, to check whether you really have received the love of the truth.

Prophetically we see Rome’s role as “Babylon the Great” in Rev. 17.  However this same chapter, and the following chapter (18), show that “the beast” will destroy the Roman organization with fire (Rev.17:16,18:8).

Rev. 17:2b  …..the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
 

This refers to a evil spiritual influence exerted by Rome, a special charisma. “Fornication” refers to idolatry.

Therefore, the poignancy of this article is that many Christians must be shocked into realizing that they have become spiritually “under the influence” of Rome : made “drunk” with her power, with her idolatry. And may many Catholics realize that Jesus Christ will not bear any evil, neither join Himself to idols, and may they come out of Babylon and into a saving faith and obedience to the Jesus of the Bible.

This article is written by a man who was a sinner, yet who obtained mercy through the grace of Jesus Christ. Though it’s fiction, it expresses the truth, the reality of Catholicism and the Papacy, verifiable through many authentic sources, and there’s no hate here for Catholics, Muslims or anyone. 

Don’t be asleep. Awake to righteousness. Watch and pray, and don’t be ignorant of the signs of the times, as Bible prophecy is fulfilled to the letter before our eyes. Jesus calls! He says Come!    Forsake all evil and come to Him.

And have no partnership with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things being done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says: “Awake, you who are sleeping, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” See then that you walk carefully, not as unwise, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

(Eph 5:11-17)

    Wow! Never have I so disagreed with a brother in Christ than I do now. If you take the Bible and paraphrase it, you will often find what you want to fit your current belief system… however, if you read it as if you were a child, reading it for the first time, prayerfully and respectfully… you will find something different. You will realize that salvation is for the individual… not the masses/organizations. So even though you and I don’t agree with the form of worship of the RCC, it doesn’t mean that its members, in realtionship with Christ, are not saved. Just as I don’t agree with your ideas on how to reach the lost with all this negativity, it doesn’t mean you are saved. Carry on!

    • ian vincent says:

      Oooooh! such a “negative” comment! Let’s not have any negativity now!

      🙂

      Sure, i don’t like negative stuff. But to avoid the truth in order to be “positive” ?? That’s fantasy Christianity.

      Jesus is the truth.

      —————————————

      I like a protesters sign board which appeared the other day in NY protests against a mosque at ground zero: “We will let you build a mosque at ground zero when you let us build a synagogue in Mecca”.

      This is an example of truth cutting like a knife thru the air thick with lies.

      The only answer a Muslim or an Obama could reply to this is a lie. It would be impossible for them to respond to this with truth, bcos they are not of the truth.

      Similarly, so many in christendom can’t speak the truth. They are incapable of it. They have too much to lose.

  2. ketch22 says:

    Oh come on! Are you serious? You honestly think that any Christian who ever lived had it all right? If so, you are the one wearing blinders.

    Of course I know the RCC is seeped in lies and its traditions are not what Christ calls us to do… but what we do in no way ensures our salvation… Christ already did that. The individual members of the RCC who have a relationship with Christ and have Him at the center of their lives are saved. Why can’t you see that?

    I go to an American Baptist Church… and I am sure that some of the things we do are not called of Christ… and if I could figure out what they were in this life, I would turn from them… but until then, I will turn to Christ for all my answers, trust Him with my whole life, and see Him someday soon.

    For you to sit here and proclaim your proclamations and insist that you know all the answers is totally arrogant and a sin.

    It is more difficult to lead somebody to Christ with fire and brimstone street corner preaching than it is to go out and serve them toward Jesus in a loving, sacrificial way. I implore you to tone down your rhetoric and attempt to reach people a different way.

    Peter Kreeft is Catholic. He is the professor of theology at Boston College (I think?) Any way, he is the reason I am a Christian today. His books on apologetics and explaining the Bible led me from doubt to faith in Christ. His interview in “A Case for Christ” by Lee Strobel also helped me along my journey of doubt to belief. His philosopy on Christ and why he knows without a doubt that He is God… changed my mind… with God’s will of course.

  3. Greg says:

    “The people who continue with it are not hearing Christ’s call to come out and are therefore most not His sheep.”

    What has led you to believe that you can see everyone’s heart? You can’t. Furthermore, it’s not your job to judge others’ hearts.

    If there were a Catholic individual whom you were in a close, loving realtionship with, you could judge their behavior, come alongside them, and confront them with your concerns. But then I don’t suppose that’s possible since you probably wouldn’t be in fellowship with a “child of hell”. I suppose the most they can hope for from you is to get yelled at and then discarded when they don’t recognize your authority.

    This broadcast-from-the-mountaintop type of judging you are so enamored with is really ugly.

    • fleebabylon says:

      Greg said:
      “What has led you to believe that you can see everyone’s heart? You can’t. Furthermore, it’s not your job to judge others’ hearts.”

      Greg – your twisted comment does not line up with scripture.

      Mat 7:19-20 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

      1Co 5:11-13 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

      Greg said:
      “This broadcast-from-the-mountaintop type of judging you are so enamored with is really ugly.”

      Are you judging me Greg? That would make you a hypocrite?

    • Greg says:

      “Are you judging me Greg? That would make you a hypocrite?”

      Yes, I’m judging your behavior. Not your heart. That’s the difference. I’m assuming the best about your heart. I’m not trying to make the case that you’re going to hell. I’m also not making a blanket statement about how all people who preach slanderous condemnation from websites are going to hell. I wouldn’t pretend to know either of those things.

      Do you think it’s possible to unintentionally sin? In other words, can one have the best possible intentions in their heart, but be unknowingly making a horrible mistake? And would that mistake condemn them?

      I say no. I believe that it’s the content of the heart that determines one’s salvation.

      I ask this because this is the category I choose to place Catholics (and you) in. In general, on an individual basis, while I may judge their behavior, I assume the best about their hearts and, therefore, their salvation. Because I can’t see their hearts. Only God can. And I leave the heart judging to Him.

      I suggest you do the same.

  4. ketch22 says:

    And by the way… the whore of Babylon will turn out to be all false religions, IMHO… not the RCC. While I pray that those who attend Mass may someday see that there is more to relationship with Christ than traditions that are pointless, I don’t believe having traditions “unsaves” you. We are all sinful humans, depraved so far from God… only God’s grace can save us, not our home churches, not our huge organizations.

    • fleebabylon says:

      one question Mark – If there is a house Church member that has a “tradition” of raping children, would that unsave them?

      Please answer this question.

  5. fleebabylon says:

    Mark said:

    “Of course I know the RCC is seeped in lies and its traditions are not what Christ calls us to do… but what we do in no way ensures our salvation… Christ already did that. The individual members of the RCC who have a relationship with Christ and have Him at the center of their lives are saved. Why can’t you see that?”

    Mark – you have been conditioned by the institutional church to believe that faith is mental accent, not an active force in our hearts and lives. The individual members of the RCC are idolaters and have a relationship with a false Christ. If someone has a “tradition” that involves idolatry then have no part in the kingdom according to the Apostle Paul. You may disagree but I will stick with the word of God. That is why I call men to come out from the RCC, because if any of Gods sheep are in there they will hear his voice and obey. You meanwhile give them a smile and nod of false unity and send them on there way to hell.

  6. ian vincent says:

    Re: “…but what we do in no way ensures our salvation… Christ already did that. ”

    What we do shows whether we are saved or not.

    I’ve asked hundreds of catholics whether they are sure they are saved and by what basis they are saved, and i’ve not yet met one who has full assurance of salvation based on Christ’s finished work on the cross. Every one i met is hoping to get to heaven by their works. Yes, some talk wonderfully about Jesus, yet they don’t have peace with God. Like Mother Theresa, for example.

    On the other hand, thousands have come out of the RCC and now warn others about it.

    I think only a false Christian would object to reaching catholics with the gospel and calling them to repent.

  7. ketch22 says:

    one question Mark – If there is a house Church member that has a “tradition” of raping children, would that unsave them?

    Please answer this question.

    I need more information. Is the tradition over and is her heart right with God? Is it something they have struggled with their entire life and are currently trying to rid themselves of this sin? Or do they recognize the sin and continue to do it? If it is the latter, I would say they are not in relationship with Christ.

    Now if you want to compare this to a Catholic who doesn’t rape children, has committed her life to Christ and demonstrates this with works in the community that serve others toward Jesus, that would be interesting. Are you going to say that a Catholic cannot possibly have a real relationship with Christ because they might ask the Saints to intervene for them? That they think Mary was perfect as well? That they think the wafer and juice become the flesh and blood of Christ directly before consuming? And all this “nonsense” negates their salvation? Because if you know Jesus, you know everything about Him without error? Wow… I thought I was saved 2 years ago when I was baptized, but just recently learned that baptism isn’t required… was I not saved back then because I didn’t know Jesus correctly because my tradition was wrong?

    • fleebabylon says:

      We are getting to the heart of the issue Mark and I would say we will get nowhere without scripture. My point in that question is that you cant just chalk everything up to “tradition” and then its ok. Idolatry is never ok.

      1Co 5:11-13 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

      In this case the wicked person would be the pope and leadership of the rcc as well as the individuals own idoaltry.

    Mark-

    Here is an old update I found from my brother Josef who is a missionary in Mexico, short and well worthe the read..

  9. fleebabylon says:

    Mark – the fruit of idolatry and allegiance to an anti christ religous institution are all I need to see.

  10. ketch22 says:

    To all…

    I think, after reading some more comments, that we (including me) are holding on to our beliefs so hard that we are not truly reading what the other says.

    I have never denied that the Roman Catholic Church is “bad”. That is puts false traditions in place of true relationship. I am truly happy, when at small group, I hear stories of former Catholics joining our Church because they were frustrated with not really knowing Christ because they were bound by tradition. My sister-in-law is Catholic, therefore my brother attends church with her. It saddens me that this church has made his faith luke-warm and he lacks a real relationship with Christ. I can say this… he is my brother and I know his fruit. And I understand, that as an organization, the RCC is evil.

    But I also understand that there are true Christians that attend the RCC. They attend because they don’t know any better. They love Christ. They don’t leave the church because of family or out of loyality.

    I once attended the First Assembly of God church. I have no doubt that I loved Christ at that time. However, the church at the top of the organization was and is seeped in corporate evil. At the bottom, where I was, it had traditions and requirements that “proved” whether you were saved or not. You didn’t have the Holy Spirit unless you spoke in tongues. I didn’t speak in tongues. Luckily I left the church and found a Church which is Doctrinely sound… in fact our sermon series right now is on doctrine.

    http://www.crossroadsabc.com/index.php?option=com_biblestudy&view=studieslist&Itemid=77

    I don’t look back on my time at that church and think I might not have been saved… I was saved, no doubt in my mind. As you know, God’s grace saves me, not my traditions or lack of knowledge.

    My problem with you guys is the way you present your argument. Instead of reaching the lost masses, you anger them and make them dig their heels in to argue back. This is not the way to reach the lost. After all, God saves people, we don’t. Just speak the truth about God… don’t focus on the “wrongness” of others… it will become apparent when they hear the Truth. God will soften their hearts. The damage you do could cause the true Christians to harden and defeat your purpose totally.

    If you are going to say that the RCC is wrong for preaching works justifies us… then you must not stray into that thinking yourselves by saying that what other Christians do wrong, could un-save them… they are already saved by God’s grace, and not un-saved by the RCC.

    Peter Kreeft is one of the most intelligent people around. He is a former Calvanist who is now Catholic. He has 7 reasons he became Catholic

    I have listened to this and completely disagree with his assumptions and reasoning. I see the Church differently than he does. I do, however, see how he could think the way he does. And it doesn’t take away from his love of Christ as it is apparent in what and all he says.

    The Bible states unequivocally who will not inherit eternal life, regardless of their profession of faith. No liar. No idolater. No homosexual. No fornicator or adulterer… etc..
