 Pope Francis draws criticism over Protestant concessions

"Pope Francis has come under fire from traditional Catholics who are growing alarmed that the Vatican is making too many concessions to Protestants – specifically, Lutherans – in the pope’s effort to foster Christian unity.


Traditionalists are crying foul over what they are calling “unprecedented expressions of openness ... towards Lutheranism,” from moves as seemingly benign as the Vatican supporting the naming of a square in Rome after Martin Luther, to remarks by the pope late last year in which he seemed to open the door to Lutherans accepting communion in a Catholic church.

The worry and anger seemed to reach boiling point last week when top officials from the Catholic and Lutheran churches released a joint press release describing a “common prayer” that is to be used in services to mark next year’s 500th anniversary of the Protestant reformation, the movement that divided the church and was spearheaded by Luther."

Mathew 15: 14

Berean Study Bible
Disregard them! They are blind guides. If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit."

Berean Literal Bible
Leave them! They are blind guides of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit."

 Re:

This is all orchestrated. Don't be fooled. Good cop, bad cop. Counter-reformation is still going on until the only expression of institutional Christianity is the Catholic Church.

 Re:

Why I thought the Pope was a pretty nice guy. After all he is sincere. I think it's too bad that the traditional Catholics don't like him. He's a hit with some of the Chrisnatic evangelicals. I think Kenneth Hagen likes him. He even prayed for him in one of his meetings. Rick Warren says Francis is his pope. Certainly he can't be all bad.

I mean after all the Pope is sincere in trying to bring all the faiths together. Who can fault that?

Haha bear. Couldn't take it seriously since Hagin died over 12 years ago. 😉

TMK, if you understand what Neil is trying to tell me, maybe you can explain it. I don't have a clue.
