We all know Pope Francis is not a Christian, as his rhetoric in a manner of subjects demonstrates that he is more of a humanist who believes man to have power or have potential to wield power similar to God. Why else would he believe that mankind could, without the use of nuclear weapons, destroy the planet that God has created?
And he does not appear to be in any way repentant of this anti-Christian idiocy or the falsehoods which he spreads. In a recently released book, the pope recounts the story of the Great Flood during the time of Noah and claims that rising temperatures and melting glaciers might cause a second Great Flood.
Interestingly, Pope Francis is not ignorant of the significance of the biblical Great Flood. He writes: “The Bible says that the flood is the result of God’s wrath. It is a figure of God’s wrath, who according to the Bible has seen too many bad things and decides to obliterate humanity. The biblical flood, according to experts, is a mythical tale. The flood is a historical tale, archaeologists say, because they found traces of a flood in their excavations… A great flood, perhaps due to a rise in temperature and the melting of the glaciers, is what will happen now if we continue along the same path.”
“God’s wrath is directed against injustice, against Satan,” he continues. “It is directed against evil, not that which derives from human weakness, but evil of Satanic inspiration: the corruption generated by Satan… God unleashed his wrath, but he saw a righteous one, took him and saved him. The story of Noah demonstrates that God’s wrath is also salvific.”
There are some things which Pope Francis gets right here, but plenty that he does not.
What he gets right is in the citing of archaeologists in that the Great Flood is a historical event. We know this as the very Word of God tells us, let alone the empirical evidence that there is of it. What he also gets right is that God’s wrath is directed at injustice, against Satan. It is directed at evil. At the corruption that Satan brought in, though the actions of Adam and Eve also led to that corruption, as they distrusted and disobeyed God.
However, that he recognizes that the Great Flood came as a result of God’s wrath against the great sins and evils of 99.9% of the world’s population at the time is what confuses me about why he is conflating God’s wrath and the flood that He delivered with pseudo-scientific mumbo jumbo about “flooding” that has been predicted for decades now and which never came.
He KNOWS the reason for the Great Flood, so why would he claim there would be a second one? Is it that he believes the creation is as powerful as the creator? Perhaps, but I think it’s a different reason: he legitimately believes that not only does humanity have the ability to destroy the earth in this way (though at no point has there been any evidence that we are causing any sort of change in the climate) but that God considers those who are “killing” the planet to be aligned with Satan and those who are trying to “save” it, namely people like him, are on the side of God and will be saved from His wrath.
The God that Pope Francis believes in is not the God that exists. Such a god is one of Pope Francis’ own imagination. He is attributing characteristics to his god and turning him into some idol. God’s wrath does not go to those who are uncaring of the planet or who are on one side or the other on the environmental issues. His wrath is not delivered for the reasons of environmentalism. It is delivered for the reason of sin – the reason of evil. This is something even Pope Francis admits, but it goes to show how warped his mind is.
He actually believes that those who are not “saving” the planet are evil and will receive God’s wrath as a result of that evil.
Now, this warped mentality should not be particularly surprising, considering the guy is a socialist (and therefore, a supporter of an ideology which has killed hundreds of millions of people, so I wonder how he weighs on the scales of evil). Leftists have, for a long time, used God to push for their own agendas.
The Left during the 19th century pushed that God was in favor of slavery because slavery was prominent in the Bible. What they failed to recognize is that the kind of slavery the Bible largely refers to is indentured servitude. There is, of course, other kinds of slavery, as the Jews were slaves in Egypt for 400 years, but that was slavery done to God’s chosen people, not done by them. Jacob was a “slave” – servant – of Laban for a total of 14 years, servitude which was done in exchange for Rachel’s hand in marriage (and, of course, he ended up marrying Leah first after seven years of servitude before serving another seven for Rachel).
So the idea that God was on the side of the Democrats and the Left in the 19th century regarding forced slave labor which dehumanized an entire group of people is as erroneous as the idea that God is on the side of the Democrats and the Left in the 21st century regarding the climate of the planet, which He made to be DYNAMIC and ever-changing.
As I have said many times in articles of this nature, the things which the Left blames for climate change cannot be the cause for similar periods of warmth found at other points in time. Neither the Roman nor the Medieval Warming Periods can be explained to have occurred because too many people were driving cars, too many people were flying planes, too many people were using their air conditioners, or that too many people were capitalist (and this one is particularly asinine as communist China is a top polluter in the world).
We have observed the dynamism of the planet's climate which God created. To claim that mankind is responsible for the same kind of climate that the planet has seen across millennia is unfound, but to claim that God is wrathful against those who acknowledge this truth about our planet is downright heretical.
God is not a puppet for Pope Francis to use as he pleases, claiming that this thing and that thing is wrong and that those who do it will face God’s wrath. Granted, he’s a Catholic, so it’s not surprising that such behavior is present, as the Catholic Church has long made up sins that are nowhere to be found in the Bible (looking at you, Seven Deadly Sins, though to an extent, as it is sinful to be lustful). But just because the Catholic Church has pretty much always done this doesn’t mean that the Pope is right in doing it himself.
It is not a sin to be against the liars and deceivers who scar children for life with untruthful claims about the state of the planet and our involvement in it. It is not a sin to be against those who would seek to take advantage of the woes and fears they create in people to take their possessions and give everything to the government, which they treat as God. It is not a sin to be against those who would kill an innocent child, in and out of the womb, because of an “overpopulation” problem that doesn’t exist or because such fools believe that more people will lead to the planet being in a worse condition.
You know what are sins? Killing people, stealing from people, lying to people for your own personal gain, and attributing to man the things that come from God. And Pope Francis better be careful with that last one, as it borders on being the unpardonable sin. I don’t think he’s committed that particular sin here, but he is dangerously close to it, in my opinion.
Mankind cannot do what God can do. It cannot cause a second Great Flood. Even with lesser floods, mankind cannot cause entire cities to flood through the methods that Francis and other Leftists believe it can.
For decades, they claimed coastal cities like Miami and Los Angeles would be inundated and uninhabitable. This is a prediction the Left has made since NEARLY 100 YEARS AGO. As I pointed out in a rather old article now, a Missouri newspaper had an article titled: “Melting Glaciers Would Flood Earth’s Big Cities.” That article was written in 1932, 89 years ago. And still, these Leftists are giving the same “warnings.”
Along with that, not one of their predictions over the last century regarding climate change has come true, from acid rains to global cooling in the 70’s to global warming in decades after to melting glaciers to great floods to droughts to super powerful and frequent hurricanes. Not ONE of those things ever came about like these “experts” predicted. They continue to lie to people and those most pushing these warnings tend to enrich themselves from the fear that they spread.
How, exactly, is God on their side? How, exactly, are such people spared from the wrath of God?
Liars, killers and deceivers. That’s what these people are and that’s what Pope Francis sides with, no matter what rationalizations or justifications appealing to the character of God (that he places in Him himself) he makes regarding this issue.
Pope Francis better repent of these sins which he continuously commits.
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
