    Exclamation Antichrist: Pope Francis Tells Catholics in Rome That a ‘Personal Relationship’ With

    That cannot be good at all! The pope has no business making such a false statement about those who are following Jesus Christ as their heart leads them to. It is no wonder why so many Catholics are leaving that sect in despair of what they see their CEO and leader doing and saying.

    Only an Anti-Christ would mislead people in that manner. So, Catholics need to beware of that man. Instead of the pope being humble and trying to steer more Catholics to Christ, he says that. That is dangerous and people need to sure know and understand that!

    Antichrist: Pope Francis Tells Catholics in Rome That a ?Personal Relationship? With Jesus Is ?Dangerous and Harmful? | Global Unrest

    "Dropping all pretense of being the “vicar of Christ”, Pope Francis told a fawning crowd of 33,000 Catholics in Rome that “a personal, direct, immediate relationship with Jesus Christ” must be avoided at all costs. He stated repeatedly that the only relationship you can have with Jesus must be from within the confines of the Roman Catholic Vatican system. These are the words of Antichrist, see for yourself:"
    “There are those of you who believe that you can have a personal, direct and intimate relationship with Jesus Christ outside of the communion and mediation of the Catholic Church. These temptations are dangerous and harmful. They are, in the words of the great Pope Paul VI, ‘absurd dichotomies’. Pope Francis, June 25, 2017 Rome"

    Simply because that kind of personal religious position wrests the power over interpretation of the dogma from the Vatican and transfers it to the individual, or Sectarian leader. Organised religion has had a problem for some time with post modernistic thinking and I suspect that this is the Vatican's screwed up answer to the problem.

    The bible was ineligible to the masses for centuries.
    The hierarchy enjoyed immense power.

    If the Pope said that he is wrong. I could never accept that I have to go through anyone human.

    I was encouraged to join the Catholic Religion. I could not do that.

    The same type that voted for Trump. Not really smart thinkers.

    Remember Bernie Sanders going to see the Pope? Did not get an audience, had to stand at the bottom of the stairs. I know then what a fraud both Bernie and Jane were. Nothing since has changed my mind.

    --That is a biased stereotype, based only on your partisan views. No more "real" than saying "Everyone on Welfare, is a workless bum," or, that "All Hillary voters are queer...."

    There will be no resolution to our nations madness, as long as we stare at each other through such false lenses....

    --I am certainly no Bernie fan, but...this seems more on the pope, than the Sanders. What were they supposed to do, if he was not going to meet them, personally?

    Have to question the source.

    But, traditionally, the Church has often wanted to place itself between God and the People.

    That gives the Church POWER.

    And humans love Power, more than we love Gold.......

    This could be good politically, splitting the conservative Catholics from the conservative Protestant fundie movement. Ralph Reed will be pissed.
