Jesus asked the apostles who they thought He was and the Apostle Peter declared, "you are the Christ, the Son of the living God." Jesus told Peter that that declaration was the rock, or foundation upon which He would build His church, against which the gates of Hell could not prevail. If Jesus is the Christ, and if He is the son of the living God and if He is God in the flesh as John chapter 1 verses 1 and 14 declare, then Jesus cannot lie by definition because the Bible tells us emphatically in Titus 1:2 the God cannot lie. How, then, could any church or church leader claim that salvation is found in simply following your conscience regardless of whether one believes in God or not? Jesus declared of Himself that He was the Way, the Truth and the Life and that no man could come to the Father but by Him.
According to the current so called Vicar of Christ, Pope Francis, as long as you follow your conscience you will be saved even if you are an atheist. In fact, Francis has declared that sin is when a person simply does not follow their conscience. This declaration falls apart on so many theological levels that one would have to wonder if Francis has ever even read the Gospels much less the rest of the Bible. If the Pope is right, Jesus is a liar.
There is ample scriptural evidence to prove that Francis is an apostate fool at best and at worst an agent of Satan purposely working against the God he claims to represent. In the Old Testament we are told twice in the book of Proverbs, once in chapter 14 and once in chapter 16 "there is a way that seems right to a man but it's end is the way to death." That sounds like following your conscience can be a dangerous way to go, but according to the Pope, Proverbs is wrong. The prophet Jeremiah, speaking on behalf of God, stated, "the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked, who can know it." Either Jeremiah is a false prophet and his book should be torn from our Bibles or the Pope is hopelessly wrong.
The entire message of the New Testament is about redemption through Christ. What do we need redemption for if we can just follow our conscience and go to heaven? Hebrews 11:6 declares Francis a liar:
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
The tragedy in all this is that millions of adherents to the Roman Catholic Church are being misled by their so called shepherd. The Bible has very clear admonitions for false teachers. James 3:1 tells us that those of us who endeavor to teach God's word need to beware because we will be judged more harshly. God will hold Francis responsible for his heretical teaching.
The fact that this pope is willing to pervert the Gospel he claims to be the guardian of is more evidence that we are living in the last days. Can Francis be the false prophet spoken of in the book of Revelation? Shame on Francis for denying his savior. Pray for Francis that he may come to a true understanding of faith through Christ. Pray that he may realize the error of his ways and come to repentance and salvation. Pray that his lies do not lead others to hell, giving false assurances of salvation to those who would choose to reject Christ. Pray for the true believers in the Roman Church to have the courage and ability to refute these heretical teachings from the Vatican.
