Pope Francis Now Wants to Ban “All Weapons”

The Pope is at it again. At what you ask?  Talking about Jesus?  Teaching about Jesus?  Writing about Jesus? Nope, nope and nope. No, the Pope rarely has time to talk about Jesus, you see he's far too

The Pope is at it again.

At what you ask?  Talking about Jesus?  Teaching about Jesus?  Writing about Jesus?

Nope, nope and nope.

No, the Pope rarely has time to talk about Jesus, you see he’s far too busy promoting far left agendas.  His latest is pushing to ban all weapons.

That’s right.  The Pope is not content to confiscate all guns, he wants knives, swords, nunchucks, you name it.  Hey Pope, you better take my arms and legs too, because they can do some damage too!

The Pope would probably be surprised to learn that even Jesus himself once brandished a whip to chase the corrupt moneychangers out of the Temple.  The reason he would no doubt be surprised to learn this is because I’m not sure the Pope has ever opened a Bible.

Oh, and while we’re on the topic of educating this Fake Pope about the Bible, Memo to the Pontiff:  Jesus is coming back and when He does He’s coming with a sword in His Mouth!

14The armies of heaven, dressed in fine linen, white and pure, follow Him on white horses. 15Andfrom His mouth proceeds a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and He will rule them with an iron scepter. He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God, the Almighty. 16And He has a name written on His robe and on His thigh: King of kings and Lord of lords.…

Revelation 19:14-16.

Wow, that is not a good verse for the Pope.  Let’s see, Jesus has a sharp sword (proceeding from his mouth), he also has an iron scepter and he’s coming with the fury of the wrath of God.  Sounds like the Pope needs to ban Jesus!

But that’s not all surprising to see the Pope diametrically opposed to Jesus.  Longtime readers of LivingGospelDaily know we’re no fans of this Pope, and in fact, we believe odds are better than 50/50 that he is, in fact, the False Prophet of Revelation.

But getting back to the story, here was Francis’ message on Twitter:

Here’s more on the story from Townhall.com:

Today on Twitter, the head of the Roman Catholic Church called for a ban on all weapons. Pope Francis asserted that the mere presence of weapons makes us constantly live in fear of war.

Other Popes have acknowledged that weapons do indeed create a certain environment of fear. Church leaders have called for bans on certain types on weapons, such as nuclear weapons, but none have called for an outright ban on all weapons. The naiveté of this comment is pretty remarkable for several reasons. Surely, in an ideal world weapons would not be needed as humans would live in peace. But, the Pope’s comment, taken alone, neglects to recognize the spiritual warfare that rages in mankind’s hearts in the battle against the devil. It is ultimately mankind’s failure in this struggle that creates the bloodshed and destruction found in the world today.

In 1982, Pope John Paul II addressed this two front battle in a speech to the United Nations calling for a peaceful ban on all nuclear weapons.

From Pope John Paul II:

“To reverse the current trend in the arms race involves, therefore, a parallel struggle on two fronts: on the one side, an immediate and urgent struggle by governments to reduce progressively and equally their armaments; on the other hand, a more patient but nonetheless necessary struggle at the level of the consciences of peoples to take their responsibility in regard to the ethical cause of the insecurity that breeds violence by coming to grips with the material and spiritual inequalities of our world. With no prejudice of any kind, let us unite all our intellectual and spiritual forces, those of statesmen, of citizens, of religious leaders, to put an end to violence and hatred and to seek out the paths of peace.”
Sadly, half-baked comments like the tweet today have become par for the course for Pope Francis. Not only is it pretty bad advice, but it actually undermines the Catholic Church’s Catechism. The Catechism, the official teaching of the Church, acknowledges there are certain times when war is justified. The Catechism obviously gives principles for avoiding war, but 2309 recognizes self-defense is sometimes needed.

Reaction

What do you think?

Is the Pope right?  Wrong?

Is he actually the False Prophet spoken of in Revelation?
