Mainstream looking to Pope Francis as peacemaker

Pope Francis (


The mainstream keeps pointing Pope Francis as a peacemaker:

January 19, 2015

Pope Francis can be a global force for peace …

Europe’s loss of faith makes it harder for people to comprehend the wider world and contributes to cultural misunderstanding. Luckily, there is the Roman Catholic Church to act as interpreter. The second thing that the crowds in Manila have shown is that Pope Francis is one of the most important diplomats of his era. He is a bridge between the West and the rest.

Of course, that has always been the case. …

As its official face, the papacy has always enjoyed diplomatic clout. In the early 1800s, the Pope pressured heads of state to suppress the slave trade. In the 1980s, Pope John Paul II united Christians in opposition to Communism. And Benedict XVI made overtures to the Eastern Orthodox — something that his intellectualism and love of liturgy made him especially well-placed to do. The personality of the pontiff helps define his mission.

As such, Francis is especially suited to the challenge of reaching out to the developing world. He is the first non-European Pope in nearly 1,300 years, coming from a country — Argentina — whose history touches upon relevant themes of colonialism and struggle for democracy….

Forbes magazine called Francis the fourth most powerful man in the world; he has been tipped for a Nobel Peace Prize.

(CNN) Pope Francis urged millions gathered in Manila on Sunday to take care of one another — and help promote peace in the world.

More and more the mainstream is pointing to Pope Francis as an international peacemaker.  I would like to comment that the idea that the pontiff “is a bridge between the West and the rest” is interesting as the term pontiff signifies a being a bridge.  The title Pontifex Maximus essentially means the ‘great bridge-builder’ allegedly between the gods and humanity.  It was a title that the Roman emperors used until the Western Emperor Gratian renounced it in the latter half of the fourth century A.D.  The Church of Rome decided to adopt the title closely after the Roman emperor abandoned it.

Pontifex Maximus’s, whether from the Roman Empire or the Vatican, have not always promoted peace.  Many have promoted wars and persecution.

Many in the media like the pontiff’s calls for economic reforms, which, to me at least, hint of class warfare.  Many in the media like the ecumenical and interfaith agenda that Pope Francis pushes, even though the Bible warns against being part of that (Zechariah 2:6-7) and that it will end in disaster (Revelation 18:1-8).

The Bible warns about someone to come who likes like a peaceful lamb, but really is aligned with the devil, known as Satan the dragon:

11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. (Revelation 13:11)

While Pope Francis may look like a lamb to many, many of his words and actions are those of Satan the dragon (Revelation 12:9). Much of the mainstream media does not pay attention to biblical prophecy and do not seem to realize where Pope Francis’ ‘peace’ plan will end up.
