A very interesting and heartfelt video – but a stupid thing to do!
Pope Francis already has a long, troublesome history of associating himself with “shady” partners and substandard “media outlets”. Now he provides a 45-minute personal video to a heretical “Prosperity Gospel” group from Texas, where a pseudo-bishop, a big-money, “Name It and Claim It” television preacher, and a dubious collection of doctrines are the primary order of the day.
Humility is great – but how about exercising a bit of good old prudential judgment and theological discernment, for a change?
This is a another huge miscalculation, a public embarassment, and a failure of ordinary due dilligence that will be widely misappropriated and misconstrued, in order to discredit and malign the Catholic Church, for years to come!
Editor’s note: A huge number of our Protestant brethren … as well as the leadership of their particular denominations … according to their own generally accepted understanding of the Bible … continue to believe (and preach) that the Pope is the Antichrist. Just wait and see how they are going to “spin” this!
