From vague affirmations to formal exegetic absurdities: for Francis, Jesus was stained by sin

The Pope’s mission to teach the truth is inherent to his position as guide of the Church. All of the baptized turn to him for words of eternal life, which, we know God has willed, should come to us through Christ’s Vicar. So, over the centuries, the Roman Pontiffs have carefully undertaken the task of preaching, aware that no one can do so with greater efficacy, authority and celestial blessings than they themselves. To this end, they even sought the collaboration of the most renowned theologians at their time, to ensure that their work be carried out to perfection with the aid of the doctrinal certainty of these collaborators.

This office of teaching must be exercised in meticulously sound fashion, for what is expected of those who are called to teach the truth is – needless to say – that they teach the truth! What if Saint Peter, for example, had proclaimed doubtful doctrines in his famous sermons recorded in he Acts of the Apostles, later sending Saint Mark to clarify, before the congregation, what he had really meant to say?… You see, the Head of the Church meant one thing, but since it is being wrongly interpreted, we had better say he really meant quite another… If such a situation had cropped up in Saint Luke’s narration, we would take it as an apocryphal interpolation, fit to shock any pious ear, for nothing could be less suggestive of the assistance of the Holy Spirit, who always accompanies the authentic servants of the Word.

The Catholic world has received quite an affront with Francis’ recent homily, delivered on the Tuesday of the fifth week of Lent, in Casa Santa Marta. The readings were beautiful and most profound, and needful of due homiletic explanation to aid their understanding by the faithful, in keeping with unflawed theology. Francis put a new spin on the episode of the bronze serpent in the desert mentioned in the Book of Numbers (21: 4–9), and most especially Christ’s being made sin for us on the cross: He said that Jesus was dirtied by sin, and implied that the serpent symbolizes our faults. Some considered his words a wonderful development in biblical hermeneutics; others, outright heresy, while still others wondered what was the exact meaning he wished to convey with that jumble of ideas. Numerous requests for clarification arrived at the Denzinger-Bergoglio desk. True to our quest to present the authentic Magisterium of the Church, we attentively examine, here, the teachings of the masters of sound doctrine, and the matter becomes clear on its own. Hence, we invite each individual to draw his own conclusions… Continue reading…

  1. The more true Christians listen to this man, the more confused they’re going to be.
    Is that deliberate

    • Yes Sheila. The more you listen to what he says, when and how, the more difficult it would be to claim this is not deliberate. I certainly believe it is. This man has been formed in the Faith- many, many years of study. He has chosen this path himself. He is a modernist who has lost his faith- at the very least. He is humanist- not a believer. He is Jesuit- they are known for double speak (although I’m sure there are faithful ones too). More than that his actions and words fulfil prophecies including those in the Book of Revelations. Do you know who “the wolf in sheep’s clothing is”? God bless you+

  2. Blasphemy – I see only one remedy: faithful priests celebrating mass solely for Pope Francis. Let the precious blood of Christ be on him thus the will of God on him and the world.

  3. BerGOGLio has made this reference before, early on in his ‘reign’ to Christ becoming the sinner. It is inexplicable and completely unacceptable. So many people overlook or excuse these horrid statements which lead to errors, and if followed to their natural conclusions within man’s reasoning, to eternal death!
