    ROME – Pope Francis focused on the person of Mary in statements issued both Tuesday and Wednesday, making assertions that some opine are unbiblical and heretical.

    “The Christian who does not feel that the Virgin Mary is his or her mother is an orphan,” he Tweeted on Tuesday, a post that generated much criticism from around the world.

    “Sorry fella, you lost me on this one,” one follower wrote.

    But over 5,600 followers favorited the Tweet and over 3,600 shared it.

    Today, the pope gave his weekly address in Rome, speaking about the Roman Catholic Church serving as a “mother” to the world, and exhorting the Church to follow Mary as an example of how to be a mother.

    Tweet“In our catecheses, we have often noted that we do not become a Christian on our own, but by being born and nurtured in the faith in the midst of the People of God, that is the Church,” he stated. “She is a true mother who gives us life in Christ, and in the communion of the Holy Spirit, brings us into a common life with our brothers and sisters.”

    “The model of motherhood for the Church is the Blessed Virgin Mary, who in the fullness of time conceived through the Holy Spirit and gave birth to the Son of God,” Pope Francis continued. “Her motherhood continues through the Church, who brings forth sons and daughters through baptism, whom she nourishes through the word of God.”

    So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus. Revelation 12:17.

    I do not care who says it Mary is not the mother of the church and Rev 12 does not come close to suggesting such a thing. The worship of Mary gets taken to the extreme of extremes.

    Well, I'm an orphan, but I got a new Father many years ago. And that's good, because no one ever wants to adopt us bigger kids.

    Why do we give any credence to the head of the oldest cult since Nimrod?

    If Peter was the first pope we should all be Catholic. If there is no staff from Peter through the papacy and bishops and priests, the whole system is as sham from the beginning. Reforming apostasy is still apostasy reformed. How does one reform apostasy?

    The world is filled with religion--most of it false, founded by a man/woman.

    This is all fulfillment of prophecy.

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

    How about it being nation of Israel though?

    And the RCC is NOT the Church God ordained, as how can God be doing that , but also having false teachings/heresies in that church?
