Pope Francis denies Jesus

I've stated several times on this blog that any person who adheres to the Catholic faith, its creeds, or submits to the Pope as spiritual authority, isn't saved. The Catholic religion is a false religion. Espousing, believing, or failure to renounce Catholic dogma means you will go to hell when you die. Mother Teresa almost certainly is in hell. Every pope that ever lived is almost certainly in hell. Catholicism denies the saving work of Jesus as the SOLE means of redemption. The Pope is a heretic. I hope I have been clear.

Today Pope Francis followed in his papist forbears' footsteps by explicitly denying Jesus. I am going to post what he is quoted as saying, and then lead you through how it denies Jesus. Pope Francis exhibits the exact nature of the characteristic 2 Timothy 3:5 states we will see in the last days, an appearance of Godliness, but denying its power. Watch and read:

Pope says everyone can do good, regardless of belief
Every human person despite his or her beliefs can do good, and a sharing in good works is the prime place for encounter among those who disagree, Pope Francis said at his Mass today. “The Lord created us in his image and likeness, and we are the image of the Lord, and he does good and all of us have this commandment at heart: do good and avoid evil. All of us,” the Pope taught in his homily May 22 at St. Martha's residence in the Vatican.

He went on to explain that all human persons are created in the image of God, who is goodness himself and the source of goodness. He emphasized the universality of Christ's saving act on the cross as a compliment [sic] to the universal call to holiness, regardless of religious belief.

“The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone.” “Even the atheists. Everyone,” Pope Francis stressed. He said that the saving blood of Christ “makes us children of God of the first class. We are created children in the likeness of God and the blood of Christ has redeemed us all. And we all have a duty to do good.”

In reading this, it becomes obvious that the Pope denied Jesus in three ways.

1. Doing good. Psalm 14:1 says there is none who does good. The Pope is talking about a human moral standard of doing good, relativistic and with no absolute benchmark. To men, doing good may mean giving back a lost wallet, or helping an old lady across the street. In God's view, there is not one person who does good. We cannot achieve any standard of holiness on our own. Yet as the Pope is speaking in his religious capacity at Mass, he is saying we possess within us the standard of goodness that God accepts simply for having been born, because our "likeness" is like God's.

The bible says none do good. Romans 3:10-12, "as it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.”

2. Universal salvation. The Pope said that even atheists are saved because Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood. "“The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone. “Even the atheists. Everyone,” Pope Francis stressed.”" However, only those who repent and believe are saved. Romans 10:9 says "because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Also see Acts 126:31, 1 John 4:15, Mark 1:15).

What the Pope is really promoting is universal salvation. Rev. Matt Slick explains what universal salvation is. "Universalism is the teaching that all people will be saved. Some say that it is through the atonement of Jesus that all will ultimately be reconciled to God. Others just say that all will go to heaven sooner or later, whether or not they have trusted in or rejected Jesus as savior during their lifetime."  The Pope's statement is shocking to Catholics because previously, Catholic dogma stated that only Catholics are saved. They believe that the blood of Jesus atoned for only those who are in the Catholic denomination, excluding Baptists, Lutherans, etc. So the Pope claiming that the blood of Jesus saves all, and that all are saved, is astounding to Catholics. Catholics have pronounced anathema (curse) on all non-Catholics since 1545, but true believers know that the Pope's words about salvation and redemption are false.

3. Jesus plus works. (Quote from the article: "He emphasized the universality of Christ's saving act on the cross as a complement to the universal call to holiness, regardless of religious belief.") According to the Pope, Jesus's blood PLUS good works, AKA holiness, is the combination one needs for salvation. Worse, believing that the work of Jesus is a complement to anything else is heresy. This is in effect saying that our works is primary and Jesus's work is a complement as complement is defined here: "Add to (something) in a way that enhances or improves it; make perfect." His work on the cross is not a complement to anything. He IS the perfect! It is Jesus plus nothing which saves.

The bible says, "For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast." Ephesians 2:8-9.

I hope this explanation has helped you see how influential and pervasive the false doctrines of the Catholic faith are and how much more dangerous they have become with this Mass today by the Pope. I had a terrible feeling when Pope Francis was elected, being a Jesuit. The march toward a prophesied universal faith, AKA one world religion seen in Revelation 13:15-17, just got a lot more real.


  1. One of the saddest things, IMHO, is that many self-categorized Roman Catholics won't even notice (and in fact, many will likely welcome) the 180-shift from the RCC-only lie to the Universalist lie.

    One small note of caution though: To say for CERTAIN that Mother Teresa and every pope that ever lived is in hell is to claim more than we human beings can ever know about one another.

    Are most in hell? Probably. But I can't see their souls. And I certainly can't claim to know if (or how) they might have changed their minds in the last minutes of their lives.

    Jesus' seven letters to the seven churches in Revelation make clear that some are extremely thin on real Christians, and that those will go through great trial and tribulation. But in no case does he state as emphatically as you have, that a denomination -- flaws, apostasy, evil and all of it, e.g., even Jezebel(!) in the RCC 'type' church -- is utterly bereft of a remnant believers.

    1. Hi newwine,

      I agree, the switch from anathema to universalism, though abrupt, will likely not gain a murmur from Catholics.

      I write the beginning of the essay dogmatically because it is certain that people who spend a lifetime denying Christ will go to h-ll. The bible tells us this. Mother Teresa spent a lifetime denying the exclusivity of Jesus,accepting other religions as valid, and adhering to Catholic dogma. This is a recipe for h-ll.

      Pastor John MacArthur addressed if the popes are in h-ll in his sermon "The Pope and the Papacy" (http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/90-291/the-pope-and-the-papacy), saying,

      "But here is Protestant/evangelicalism abandoning sound doctrine, shaming the name of Christ. And all in bold relief so the whole world can see. And the world was watching the death of Pope John Paul II in an unrivaled spectacle of worship given to a man. And the question came up, is the Pope in heaven? And you hear all these people say, "Yes, yes, yes." People have asked me, "Is the Pope in heaven?" And my answer is, "Is the Pope Catholic?" Isn't that the answer? I think he is, I think the Pope is Catholic. Does he believe Catholic theology? Yes. He is the guardian of Catholic theology. Do you get to heaven by works, by Mary, by Penance, by Baptism, by confession, by Rosary? No. This is another gospel. This is not the true gospel."

      It is powerful when read in its entirety in context, even better to listen to the sermon.

      I cannot say if you are going to heaven or h-ll, or my neighbor, and I wouldn't. But the popes, the embodiment of men who deny Jesus and are spiritual idolaters, adulterers and blasphemers? Protectors of false doctrine, writers of false doctrine, and promoters of false doctrine? I can say with certainty that the bible says such unrepentant men do not enter heaven. (Rev 21:8, 1 Cor 6:9, Gal 5:19-21).

    2. I have a question about this... You said that baptism does not lead to salvation when you say -
      " Do you get to heaven by works, by Mary, by Penance, by Baptism, by confession, by Rosary? No. " -
      It is a bible truth that this was a teaching of Jesus and his disciples in the early church of the first century as written in Acts = Chapter 2 verses 35 - 41 where some 3000 were baptised and it says they were saved and their souls were added... and Like I said of Jesus' own teachings - John 3 : 3 - 5 + 6 says you must be born of the spirit which implies that through baptism you receive the Holy Spirit...

      This is the true gospel look it up. I'm not a catholic and I believe that to deny Jesus is a one way trip to hell but Jesus himself said that Baptism is necessary.
      Mathew 28 : 19 -
      Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

    3. Baptism does not save you.

      Baptism is important, it is one of two ordinances in the church, Lord's Supper being the other. However the act of baptism has nothing to do with salvation. It is a step of obedience from one who is already saved toward publicly proclaiming Christ is one's savior.

      In the Matthew verse you quoted, "therefore go and make disciples, baptising them..." a disciple is ALREADY saved. The act of Baptism doesn't save you.

      You are saved by faith alone (John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5) not by a human work, such as baptism. The order of salvation is that the regeneration comes first, THEN the baptism at a later point, either immediately or months or even years later. Baptising a person doesn't CAUSE the regeneration.

      Here is something for you to read:

      Is Baptism Necessary for Salvation?

  2. What will the next change be? Acceptance and celebration of homosexuality? Especially in view of the above. Keep up the good work Elizabeth. I look forward to reading your posts.

    1. Hi Anonymous,

      Thank you for reading :)

      I think we are past the point of no return regarding America and homosexuality. I base that on Romans 1:18-32. There is a progression to reprobate minds and sin. God gives them over. In MacArthur's sermon "Homosexuality and the Campaign for Immorality", he said (http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/90-449) "Romans 1. That’s why that judgment comes, because of these kinds of perversions. God abandons and then judges nations."

      "I don’t know how much time America has left, I really don’t. But we’re on a course described here as God casting us out. The land has become defiled. “I’ve brought its punishment upon it,” verse 25, “so the land has spewed out its inhabitants.”

      It's an amazing and very pointed sermon. I wonder what the next change will be also. The Roman Catholic church swung from anathema toward any other denomination to universalism in one mass. Gay Marriage is gaining in more states. The Supreme Court is considering banning public prayer. Amazing times.

    2. Hi Anonymous, Homosexuality is and has been celebrated in many churches despite denomination and/or the creeds that these people choose to live by. I have witnessed this myself and have watched many videos where the entire congregations were gay and speaking in tongues..??!! So, what is next? The advocates are preparing the way for the coming anti-Christ. We have been warned and this should not shock us but rather awaken us to the fact that "our" enemy (satan) is hard at work and time is very short. This is a time to be praying for the return of the real Christ. Also, we should be sharing info with lost souls, so that they may also have the same chance to make it as we do.

    3. yep,the pope welcoming homosexuals now,sin for all you are worth,live satans lie and you will go to heaven. frankenpope denied Jesus christs Divinity,he stated Jesus was just a man and that he prays for us.... Why would God pray to God for us? simply astounding evil lies. Jesus Christ is the Way,the Truth and the Life. No one goes to the Father except through Our Lord Jesus Christ. amen

  3. Big fan of MacArthur. Bigger fan of what he reveres: The Word of God. It doesn't give us license to be THAT certain.

    All I'm saying is that we cannot know, categorically, in every case, whether someone repented in time -- from whatever -- and that attaching more past-tense certainty than God has given us, in our limited knowledge, is a snare.

    The thief on the cross leaves the door open. If he didn't, it would not be in scripture.

    Is that the recommended route? Not at all! I would no more urge someone to turn to, or stay in the RCC than I would that they embrace a life of thievery. This is serious business. All the language about millstones around necks, camels through needles, etc. is there for a reason.

    Yet the difference between saying someone is, 'headed for hell based on everything I can see,' and saying that, 'I know for sure they ARE in hell,' is vast.

    The TOTC puts us in the right stance vis a vis our ultimate judge and king: deferring to him, while examining ourselves against the Truth of the Word, and urging others to do likewise.

    1. YMMV. I'm sure about the popes and Teresa. The pope spends his career saying and believing he is THE substitute on earth for Christ. It is the highest blasphemy.

      Teresa believed, "If in coming face to face with God we accept Him in our lives, then we become a better Hindu, a better Muslim, a better Catholic, a better whatever we are. What God is in your mind you must accept." (blasphemy)

      ""It is beautiful to see that humility of Christ in His permanent state of humility in the tabernacle," the little box where they put the wafer and the wine. "Where Christ has reduced Himself to such a small particle of bread that a priest can hold Christ in two fingers." Vatican II said, "The blessed Sacrament should be given the worship which is due to God, the true God. It is not to be adored any less."" (idolatry)

      "she wrote, "May you enter into the heart of Jesus through the Virgin Mary," and signed her name. So she believed that salvation is by virtue of Mary." (heresy)

      I repeat the statement I pasted above, "is the Pope in heaven? And you hear all these people say, "Yes, yes, yes." People have asked me, "Is the Pope in heaven?" And my answer is, "Is the Pope Catholic?" Isn't that the answer? I think he is, I think the Pope is Catholic. Does he believe Catholic theology? Yes. He is the guardian of Catholic theology. Do you get to heaven by works, by Mary, by Penance, by Baptism, by confession, by Rosary? No."

      The bible says such unrepentant people do not enter heaven. (Rev 21:8, 1 Cor 6:9, Gal 5:19-21).

  4. The scriptures ARE VERY CLEAR as to the whereabouts of those who are not WITH Christ. While the judgement has not occurred yet, Luke 16 gives us a real clear picture as to where the dead are. A.) Abraham's bosom
    B.) Torment in Hades awaiting the final judgement
    Luke 16
    19 “There was a rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day. 20 And at his gate was laid a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, 21 who desired to be fed with what fell from the rich man's table. Moreover, even the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham's side. The rich man also died and was buried, 23 and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. 24 And he called out, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in anguish in this flame.’ 25 But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that you in your lifetime received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner bad things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish. 26 And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, in order that those who would pass from here to you may not be able, and none may cross from there to us.’ 27 And he said, ‘Then I beg you, father, to send him to my father's house— 28 for I have five brothers—so that he may warn them, lest they also come into this place of torment.’ 29 But Abraham said, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.’ 30 And he said, ‘No, father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ 31 He said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead.’”

    Based upon THEIR OWN testimony of reconciliation. I can say with confidence they are doomed.(Anyone trusting in any measure something other than the blood of Christ).

    John 12
    47 If anyone hears my words and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. 48 The one who rejects me and does not receive my words has a judge; the word that I have spoken will judge him on the last day. 49 For I have not spoken on my own authority, but the Father who sent me has himself given me a commandment—what to say and what to speak.

    The very Word of Christ say's by the standard of it's truth THEY ARE ALREADY JUDGED.

    1. Luke 16:19 is a parable. Peace be to you.

    2. Scott, some say it's a parable, some say it's a recounting of an actual event. I tend toward interpreting it as the latter.

      Is Luke 16:19-31 a parable or an account of events that actually occurred?

  5. I know this is a couple of months old. But I'd like to make some points here. The Pope is not saying that everyone is saved. He is saying that the Lord's redemption is for all, meaning that Christ's sacrifice is for all. And when Catholics speak of works (as James does in scripture "faith without works is dead"), we are speaking of the necessity of accepting Christ's sacrifice for us. It is a "work" on our part to accept Christ, and we cannot be saved, even though Christ died for us all that we might all be saved, unless we accept his free offer of grace. It’s a “you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink” thing. Our cooperation is required for salvation. When you hear Pope Francis speak in entirety, when you see the context, what he says is the same as the church has always said.

    As for someone's reference to the idolatry of the Eucharist, I suggest you read John 6:26-59. What was Christ's response when his disciples murmured amongst themselves "how can this man give us His flesh to eat"? He could have said, "wait, don't go, don't leave based on a misunderstanding, let me clarify, I meant that symbolically", but He didn't mean it symbolically.

    He was more emphatic! He said (in John 6:52-56) "Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him."

    He stressed several times that His flesh is living bread for our consumption. That must have sounded crazy until it dawned on them at the last supper that it could be fulfilled through the miracle of the Eucharist, when our Lord said "This IS My body which will be given up for you."

    It must have been too much for Judas, He wouldn't partake of the Eucharist. He was one who persisted in asking "how can this man give use his flesh to eat?" Remember what Christ told Thomas, blessed are those who believe without seeing. Catholics believe without seeing that His flesh is indeed nourishment for our souls, and we follow his command when he says "Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you." This is not idolatry, it is Christ's teaching. Never did He "clarify" to avoid losing his disciples for eternity. And never would He have let them leave risking their very salvation over a simple misunderstanding. That is because there was no misunderstanding. They had it right, they had been commanded to eat His flesh and drink His blood, and when they said "who can hear this", He responded more emphatically repeating FOUR times in very clear language in the space of just four verses that he was indeed talking about eating his flesh and drinking his blood!

    John 6:52-56:
    1) "Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood ...
    2) "Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood ...
    3) "my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed ...
    4) "He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood ...

    No other interpretation makes sense, and the Catholic interpretation wasn’t questioned until the reformation. And even Luther didn't question it. He believed in a slightly different teaching, "consubstantiation", whereby he claimed the real presence came to dwell among the particles of bread after the consecration, rather than the Universal belief ("transubstantiation"), that the real presence of Christ replaced the particles of bread and wine but remained under their appearance. Only now do Christians claim as idolatry, a belief in the profoundly clear words of our holy Savior.

  6. Who are you to judge? God will judge on the last day, not any of you.
    "Not everyone who says Lord, Lord, will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but rather he who does the will of my Father" (Matthew 7:21). The will of the Father is to live like Christ did; forgiving and showing love. We will stumble along the way, but the Blood of Christ has rescued us.
    Are you familiar with Matthew 25:31-46? The King separates the sheep and the goats not by faith in him, but by how they treated the lowest of society. He condemns the goats to hell, even though they cry out "Lord". The goats certainly had faith. They know that the King is their Lord and Savior, but still they are not saved.

    1. Greedev, I am a Christian and I am exhorted to JUDGE! That's who I am. We are to test all things, mark those who cause divisions, judge with a right judgment, reprove, correct, teach, and avoid those who are causing harm to the faith. Many verses say this. Who are you NOT to judge? Don't you care about Jesus? His honor? Don't you draw lines in the sand and say, 'here is faith, and here is not faith'? If you don't then shame on you!

      If we don't judge, how can we know who to pray for and witness to?! If we don't judge, how can we know who is in the faith to encourage them and help them?!

      Read this, please, it provides the biblical basis for JUDGING. I use capitals here on purpose to get right in your face and say, be discerning, brother, or you will fall for anything.

      Christians Are Exhorted To Judge

  7. Good word Sister, I have been blogging about this heretic Pope for some time now. I am amazed at how blatant he has been in his anti-Christian philosophy and liberal viewpoints. Keep up the good work and God bless!

  8. So is should be no wonder that Pope Francis resorted to calling Muslims brothers and sisters. this is from a catholic web site:

    "Pope Francis called on Muslims and Christians to “work together”, during his Angelus address in St Peter’s Square on Sunday.

    After reciting the Angelus with the thousands of pilgrims gathered in the square, Pope Francis said he wanted to extend his greetings to “Muslims throughout the world, our 'brothers and sisters', who have just celebrated the end of the month of Ramadan, which is dedicated in a special way to fasting, prayer and almsgiving.”

    Mark 3:34 Looking about at those who were sitting around Him, He said, "Behold My mother and My brothers! 35"For whoever does the will of God, he is My brother and sister and mother"For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. 39"This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up on the last day. 40"For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day."…

    And what is the Will of God?
    John 6: "For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.

    39"This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up on the last day.

    40"For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day."…

    Koran: "Say not that Allah has a son"

    By calling them brothers and sisters, he is saying implicitly that the Father does not have a Son..by agreeing with them by calling them brothers and sisters"

    I see the comments of the Catholics who will have to go to great lengths and over extend those beliefs by resorting to man-made doctrines, sacraments, and 'traditions' without shame and even state that as a fact yet this then should be undeniable as Jesus spoke to the Pharisees:

    …7'BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN.' 8"Neglecting the commandment of God, you hold to the tradition of men." 9He was also saying to them, "You are experts at setting aside the commandment of God in order to keep your tradition.…

  9. Tell me if any human fully understand the Bible and the words and meaning page by page! If so, then you are as powerful as Almighty! Don't, then keep practicing but it won't happen in million years.

    1. Hi Anonymous,

      You're absolutely right, we cannot understand the Bible to the level that God does, because we are not God.

      That does not mean, however, that we cannot understand it at all. He sent the Holy Spirit to us to illuminate its truths to us. He did, and we can understand the Bible as He leads us in knowledge and discernment. This process of how the Spirit brings truth to our mind is called biblical illumination. Here is a short essay that helps us understand the doctrine of illumination-


  10. The Bible clearly says This is antichrist both the person and system of religion!

    Leif Berg

    The Roman Catholic Mass is CLEARLY a DOCTRINE of DEVILS.

  11. Im a catholic but im gonna leave this religion,i read the bible and the prayers of catholics doesnt match the bible,craven images especially im from philippines doesnt match the bible

  12. Catholism is a devilish anti christ cult..One thing i totally detest about the Popes and the followers is how they say they have the power and authority to declare anyone a saint..Every time you read ..so and so has been declared a saint bt the Pope...Did the pope die for anyone..Isnt the pope a man..Has anyone ever been baptised in the name of the of the pope..Only the Faith of Christ makes all who believe saints..
    Everyone who believes in Christ has been saved is a saint of tbe Kingdom of God which is in Christ Jesus...NOT AND NEVER BY THE POPE's say so....And tbe pope is NOT the head of the Church of God..It is Jesus Christ...The pope is an anti Christ and aliar..a messenger of the devil....

  13. I fear your heaven is going to be a very lonely place. It doesn't sound like too many people will make it there. Have fun.

    1. Hi Michael,

      There is no "your heaven" or "my heaven." There's just heaven. The qualifying entry ticket for getting in is belief in Jesus Christ after repenting of your sins. This is justification by faith, and nothing else is required, just faith in Jesus, the True and Living holy God. Romans 10:9-10

      "Lonely"?!!? Not so! Jesus' presence there will be glorious and wonderful, and along with the millions and billions of saved people throughout the millennia, it will be a fellowship undeniably joyful with all of those present.

      No need to fear, Michael. if you're saved by faith and believe in the Jesus of the Bible, you will be there and never lonely.

  14. The pope is anti Christ..Catholics follow their own books and doctrines apart from the Holy Bible..The pope claims to forvice sins accept confessions and declare anyone of his choice a saint..Cathomisn is a fevilish cult .The pope also claims he is tbe head of the Church of God..Tbe hrad of tbe Church of God univetsally is Jrsus Christ...
