“And he causes all people, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the slave, that they give them a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and that no one was able to buy or to sell except the one who had the mark—the name of the beast or the number of his name.” (Revelation 13:16–17)
It sure appears like Mr. Jorge Mario Bergoglio (aka Pope Francis) is a Marxist. The Pope said this about the European refugee problem:
“These poor people are fleeing war, hunger, but that is the tip of the iceberg. Because underneath that is the cause; and the cause is a bad and unjust socioeconomic system, in everything, in the world – speaking of the environmental problem –, in the socioeconomic society, in politics, the person always has to be in the centre. That is the dominant economic system nowadays, it has removed the person from the centre, placing the god money in its place, the idol of fashion. There are statistics, I don’t remember precisely, (I might have this wrong), but that 17% of the world’s population has 80% of the wealth.” (Vatican Insider)
“The person has to be at the center?” …oh really? John the Baptist said,
“A man can receive not one thing unless it is granted to him from heaven! … The one who comes from above is over all. The one who is from the earth is from the earth and speaks from the earth; the one who comes from heaven is over all.” (John 3:31)
The pope argued the refugee problem is due to an unjust economic system and not supernatural evil (Ephesians 6:12)? Nominal Catholics with a Western education in economics know better. Robert Spencer – a vocal critic of Islam – takes Pope Francis’ socialist arguments and turns them on their ear with facts. Spencer demonstrates that the pope even contradicts his own previous statements about refugees… While Jesus was not a capitalist he was no Marxist: Jesus said,
“Therefore give to Caesar the things of Caesar, and to God the things of God!”(Matthew 22:21)
It is beyond question that in the context of the passage “the things of Caesar” meant more MONEY for the wealthiest man imaginable (and less for the poor) at that time Jesus spoke. Why does the alleged Vicar of Christ, contradict the words of the historical Jesus Christ? In a different but relevant context, Jesus reminded the disciples that perfuming his body was more important than feeding the hungry:
“For this could have been sold for a large sum and given to the poor!” But Jesus, knowing this, said to them, “Why do you cause trouble for the woman? For she has done a good deed for me. For the poor you always have with you, but you do not always have me.” (Matthew 26:9–11)
Islam critic, Robert Spencer does a fine job of shredding the false prophet’s socialist apologetic: POPE KARL I The Pontiff blames the refugee crisis on…capitalism. Tom Horn and I wrote about this in 2011 in Petrus Romanus:
It’s been assumed for centuries that a prerequisite for the coming of Petrus Romanus and his Antichrist master would be the sudden or contrived emergence of a new world order—an umbrella under which national boundaries dissolve and ethnic groups, ideologies, religions, and economics from around the world orchestrate a single and dominant sovereignty. At the head of the utopian administration, the Antichrist will surface. At first, he will appear to be a man of distinguished character, but will ultimately become “a king of fierce countenance” (Daniel 8:23) who makes the combined depravities of Antiochus Epiphanes, Hitler, Stalin, and Genghis Khan, all of whom were types of the Antichrist, look like child’s play. With imperious decree, he will facilitate a One-World Government, universal religion, and global socialism. (page 426)
