Pope Francis Says that Interfaith Unity Must Recognize the “Specific Ministry of the Bishop of Rome”
The Pope is working overtime to unite all the world’s religions into one family. The path to interfaith cooperation and unity that the Pope is pushing is one that will make all churches recognize the primacy of the papacy. This is what Pope Francis has stated in a video that is part of a collection of statements he has made on the subject of Christian unity.
The Pope said: “Here I reiterate the hope already expressed by my predecessors for a continued dialog with all our brothers and sisters in Christ, aimed at finding a means of exercising the specific ministry of the Bishop of Rome, which in fidelity to his mission, can be open to a new situation and can be, in the present context, a service of love and of compassion acknowledged by all.”
A new era of cooperation and unity has begun. But the unity that is expressed here is one that claims that differences do not exist or are not that important. There is no Bible study taking place here, there is no repentance, there is no confession of sin and apostasy is not being addressed.
The problem with setting aside the truth and acknowledging the supremacy of the papacy is that this will lead to the healing of the deadly wound (Revelation 13:3) and the worship of the dragon (Satan). Prophecy warns us of an end-time, one-world church that will worship the dragon, the beast, and eventually receive the mark of the beast (Revelation 13:3, 4, 16). This is the true “specific ministry” of Rome that we must acknowledge. #sda #adventist #adventista
