As of course you all know Pope is in US. Visited with Prez yesterday and today he is in New York City where he is going to give speech at the UN.
What do you think will be the impact of this Popes visit on Christian Religion in USA?
And do you think it is positive for all Christian denominations or just the Catholics?
Friend, impact? Americans will consider what he says. IE: Open door policy with our borders, economic inequality, just economy equals happy families, environmental protection, fight partisanship, and dialogue not ideology. Christian Americans who know our history well will reject any words coming from him therefore little to no impact at all. Positive for all Christian denominations or just Catholics? Hmm. Actually, I don't think his visit will be marked as positive or negative. Within the Catholic church itself, there is great dissension. Way too liberal for some and there are those who never have nor ever will accept him. Some Catholics will blindly follow him without a second thought because that is what they were brought up to believe to be right. Christians in varying denominations, those who read scripture with the understanding of 2 Tim 3:16-17, recognize a jewdaizer when one is heard. Acts 15 pretty much dealt with that. So, neither positive nor negative. It is what it is.
Pope represents the only true Christian Religion, which is Catholicism.
All other Christian denominations are abominations and will be judges accordingly by the All Mighty and his Son. So Pope coming to US is a good thing to remind all those Christian aberrations such as protestant, Church of England, etc. that the only true Christianity is Catholicism.
I am a protestant convert from Catholicism. I think he will have a positive impact on many individuals Catholic and non-Catholic. Although, as an adult, I do not believe many doctrines of the Catholic Church, the church had a positive impact on my life. It taught me foundational truths of the Christian faith and I am grateful. The Pope is coming in a time when Christianity is under a big attack in the states and many US citizens are losing faith. While the Catholic church is based a lot on tradition; I am grateful he represents many of the teachings of Christ: love your neighbor as yourself, bless those who curse you, forgiveness, generosity. We U.S. citizens need a reminder of these teachings and I think he is sparking faith, hope, and love across our nation. My prayer is that he had a godly impact on our congress, president, and leaders.
I think that Pope Francis is one of the best Popes since Emperor Constantine made Christianity a legal religion. Why? Firstly, because he has a good heart. Secondly, because he believes in compassion, empathy, justice and philanthropy. Thirdly, because he is trying to find solutions to many GLOBAL PROBLEMS. Fourthly, because he is aware of the impending global disaster GLOBAL WARMING will be to the whole world. Fifthly, because he knows that a THIRD WORLD WAR will be the prophesied BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON.
On top of all those problems, he is expected to find solutions to the pedophile scandals, to same sex marriages, to rampant homosexuality, to legalized abortions and to the reputation of CHRISTIANITY as the MOST DIVIDED RELIGION IN THE WORLD.
I hope God gives him all the strength, and wisdom, to find some solutions to all those problems.
