Matthew 7:1, 3 “Don’t criticise people, and you will not be criticised. For you will be judged by the way you criticise others, and the measure you give will be the measure you receive.” “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and fail to notice the plank in your own? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me get the speck out of your eye’, when there is a plank in your own? You fraud! Take the plank out of your own eye first, and then you can see clearly enough to remove your brother’s speck of dust.” Read the description of the event again. Taking it at face value what is wrong with it? What, alternatively, should they be praying for? Why always think the worst of people and cast doubt on their motives?
I read it's about unity. I see the Vatican as wanting the Christian believers to be reconciled, to come back home.Pope Francis recently gave a speech and in it he mentioned the story of Joseph. How the Israelites had money. He said you can't eat money. They had to go down to Egypt to buy corn. They had to be reconciled with their brother in order to eat.Take a look around and you are seeing food being used as a weapon today. In Venezuela, Russia, North Korea, Iran, and the lists go on. Be reconciled to my way or you want eat is the message today and the one that's coming as food, seed, and water are being bought up.Kind of like the mark of the beast. Can't buy or sell even though you have money; you have to be reconciled with your brother and take his way or else.The unity sought for in DC may be something quite different than what it appears. We live in an age of great deception.

Maybe the pope will get saved while hanging out with Francis Chan. Wouldn't that be something. Maybe that's what we should be praying for.

Brother Todd,Ha! That would be something:))Honestly I'd love to just listen to that conversation,...Francis C. really has a way about him that I just can't help but admire and my imagination finds lots to smile about with a Francis C. on P. Francis dialogue;)
You're on the right track Gary!
. Pope Francis said on November 30 that Christians and Muslims were ‘brothers’,
"Give me jesus ,,who cares about theoligy ,,bad theoligy ,,lets all come together for jesus ,,and sing combyya,,its not about theoligy who cares what we believe ,the importaint thing is ,giving jesus our heart ???
"lets all come together for jesus ,,and sing combyya"
"Blessed are you when men hate you, and ostracize you, and insult you, and scorn your name as evil, for the sake of the Son of Man. Be glad in that day and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven. For in the same way their fathers used to treat the prophets...Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for their fathers used to treat the false prophets in the same way."
."During his hour-long speech, but smiling Pope Francis was quoted telling the Vatican's guests that the Koran and the spiritual teachings contained therein are just as valid as the Holy Bible.""Jesus Christ, Jehovah, Allah, these are all names to describe an entity that is distinctly the same as around the world.""We can accomplish marvelous things in the world by merging our faiths and the time for such a movement is now."And you accuse me of judging???
Brother Blaine, While I agree the Pope is an evil man and not a Christian at all - I exhort you to check your sources. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that your alleged Pope Francis quotes are all taken from a "National Review" article...The issue is that the National Review is a fake news site. Pope Francis likely never made those statements (at least not publicly). We do need to play by the rules and, "by the mouth of two or three witnesses let every word be established," (unless you personally witnessed him make these statements in a public speech). Can you provide references so we can verify the Pope Francis quotes? Thanks brother. Though I do agree that the whole event in DC is not according to the will of God and find it to be very dangerous (end time) error and deception.
