    Now Pope Francis is equating the Great Commission with jihad.

    Matthew 28:16-20King James Version (KJV)

    16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.

    17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.

    18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

    19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

    20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.


    “It is true that the idea of conquest is inherent in the soul of Islam. However, it is also possible to interpret the objective in Matthew’s Gospel, where Jesus sends his disciples to all nations, in terms of the same idea of conquest,” he said.

    Pope Francis seems to be a Peronist. Peron, of Italian ancestry, visited Italy in the days of Mussolini and sought to follow in the footsteps of fascism in Argentina.

    I am having difficulty understanding what your objection is. The goal of both Christianity and Mohammedanism is the conversion of the world's population to each' religion.

    "Conquest" is not the same as "conversion." The belief in individual soul liberty, held by most Baptists and many other Christians, is not often (ever?) a part of jihad - "convert or die" (or just "die") is the more common action. The goal of jihad is an Islamic theocracy led by Muslim men. I believe the only earthly Christian theocracy will be led by Christ.

    Seems like semantics to me, but I understand your point.

    How often is Scripture likened to a sword, or do we sing "Onward Christian Soldiers", etc? Christianity is filled with militaristic references.

    I still see it as the goal being similar, but the method different.

    Rolfe, don't pay any attention to the theology of this Peron-loving Pope--he is a Sunday-School dropout.

    I don't know your exact reference to Scripture being likened to a sword, but I know that Hebrews says that Scripture is sharper than a sword, just as Superman is not advertised as a bullet but as faster than a speeding bullet.

    Hebrews 4:12 (KJV) For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

    As for the reference to the old hymn, I suppose that the religious left started attacking that hymn long ago--I remember that complaint from the mid 1950s. But it is merely a hymn and has no theological standing and I doubt if Pope Francis has ever heard it since Argentina is such an oppressive state where the Iranian murders of Jews at the Israel embassy and at a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires have been covered up by two or three Peronist Presidents.

    To say, as the Peronist Pope did that Christianity wants to conquer the world for Jesus militarily as Islam wants to conquer the world for a demon named Allah is a political statement from this Peronist and not a theological statement unless you can show that Christians are not being murdered daily by Islam and that Christianity is based upon something other than Love for Jesus as Lord and Saviour. Why should I worry about Jews and other non-Christians when they are lost in sin and bound for Hell for what they believe, no?

    CMG- There is little that I agree with held by the Catholic Church, so do not think that I like his theology. I just see a similarity between his statement and the same type of militaristic things that I have heard from other parts of Christendom since I was a child.

    Yeah, the fascist-loving Pope Franics is spouting the leftist Christianity that has been around since the days of the German professors in the 19th century.

    You have the burden of proof to defend your point of view. A better post by you might be that this Peronist is elderly and therefore unaccountable. Actually, Front Page Magazine says that this disciple of Mussolini and Peron has a jihad against Christianity:

    http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/262921/pope-francis-jihad-christianity-raymond-ibrahim

    With many calling Pope Francis the anti-Christ, Preachin' Jesus, how do you feel about the Pope's stand on homosexuality, Islam, capitalism and the New World Order?

    No I don't. Just saying I have the burden of proof is silly. You posted a link and provided a jaundiced summary. Several others have noted it and called you out as I did as well. Perhaps reading the whole thing would benefit us all.

    Pope Francis' stands are in line with Catholic dogma. Go read his public remarks and acts, and not the popular portrayals by western journalists. You'll see his views are in line with Catholic dogma. I'm not Catholic, I am a Baptist.

    When you say that the Great Commission is like jihad, the burden of proof falls to you. You have presented no evidence that Pope Francis is correct that preaching the gospel is like jihad.

    And, no, Pope Francis, a Peronist or an Argentine admirer of Mussolini, is way outside of Catholic dogma. It is my guess that western journalist are in line with your own theology and are not critics of the Pope. The criticism is coming from conservative Catholics and those in Latin America opposed to communism and fascism. Recall that Pope Francis is close friends with the Kirchners and others in the Peronist faction who accepted money from Iran after Iran attacked the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires and the Jewish cultural center in Buenos Aires, not to mention the murder of Nisman, the special prosecutor. The Pope has not spoken against the murder of Jews in Argentina.

    Yeah, I wrestled with that one, too. It is usually thought that the Pope is the anti-Christ but maybe this one is the false prophet.

    From my prospective, anyone who opposes Christ is an Anti-Christ. Therefore, we are loaded with them.

    Petrus Romanus, qui paſcet oues in multis tribulationibus: quibus tranſactis ciuitas ſepticollis diruetur, & Iudex tremẽdus iudicabit populum ſuum. Finis.

    Malachy could have been right. This is the 112th one.
