This isn’t the first time that the Pope has made very inflammatory statements regarding Jesus Christ. In 2015, the Pope claimed that Jesus’s life ended in failure:
Here is what the Pope said, verbatim:
“The cross shows us a different way of measuring success. Ours is to plant the seeds. God sees to the fruits of our labors. And if at times our efforts and works seem to fail and not produce fruit, we need to remember that we are followers of Jesus Christ and his life, humanly speaking, ended in failure, the failure of the cross.”
Since that time, many have debated what the Pope actually meant. The most prolific pro-pope argument claims that Pope Francis meant from a superficial, human point of view, Jesus’ death looks like a failure, but actually, from God’s perspective, it was not.
This is a futile attempt at covering up the Pope’s true intent. It is because of Jesus’s death on the cross that HUMANS have salvation. It is because of the cross that HUMANS now have access to the Father and can be forgiven for sins. Do all humans perceive that to be a failure? Of course not! An early death could very easily mean a successful life in many scenarios.
After having maligned Jesus by painting his death with such words, Pope Francis now seeks to cut your personal relationship with the Son of God. Move on to the next page to see this for yourself:
