I try to expose false doctrines from the very mouths of those who teach them.
|Pope Francis||The Bible|
|“No one becomes Christian on his or her own! Is that clear? No one becomes Christian by him or herself. Christians are not made in a laboratory. A Christian is part of a people who comes from afar. The Christian belongs to a people called the Church and this Church is what makes him or her Christian, on the day of Baptism, and then in the course of catechesis, and so on.”||1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
|“Our Christian identity is belonging to a people: the Church. Without this, we are not Christians. We entered the Church through baptism: there we are Christians,”
“You cannot love God outside of the Church; you cannot be in communion with God without being so in the Church.”
1 Corinthians 1:2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:
The “church” is not an organization. The biblical meaning is “called out ones” the believers in Christ.
|“The Christian who does not feel that the Virgin Mary is his or her mother is an orphan.”||John 1:12 But as many as received him (Jesus Christ), to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:|
|“The Church officially recognizes that the People of Israel continue to be the Chosen People. Nowhere does it say: ‘You lost the game, now it is our turn.’ It is a recognition of the People of Israel.”||1 Peter 2:9 But ye (Christians) are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
Revelation 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
|“I do not approach the relationship in order to proselytize, or convert the atheist; I respect him… nor would I say that his life is condemned, because I am convinced that I do not have the right to make a judgment about the honesty of that person… every man is the image of God, whether he is a believer or not. For that reason alone everyone has a series of virtues, qualities, and a greatness of his own.”||Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Romans 1:16 ¶For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;…
|“Each of us has a vision of good and of evil. We have to encourage people to move towards what they think is good… Everyone has his own idea of good and evil and must choose to follow the good and fight evil as he conceives them. That would be enough to make the world a better place.”||Psalms 119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.
Psalms 119:30 ¶I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me.
|“From my point of view, God is the light that illuminates the darkness, even if it does not dissolve it, and a spark of divine light is within each of us.”||John 1:4 In him (Jesus) was life; and the life was the light of men.
John 12:46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
|“Proselytism is solemn nonsense; it makes no sense. We need to get to know each other, listen to each other and improve our knowledge of the world around us.”||Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.|
|“The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone!”||1 John 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
