Update 6: The World's Voice?
Posted 09.25.2015

On his third day in a historic visit to the United States, Pope Francis addressed the United Nations General Assembly on its 70th anniversary. In this largest gathering of world dignitaries, the pope spoke on the environment, poverty and the “absolute respect for life in all its stages and dimensions.” He then lead a prayer service at the September 11 memorial, visited schoolchildren in Harlem, paraded through New York, and celebrated Mass at Madison Square Garden.

Of interest are his comments on religious liberty. To quote: “At the same time, government leaders must do everything possible to ensure that all can have the minimum spiritual and material means needed to live in dignity and to create and support a family, which is the primary cell of any social development. In practical terms, this absolute minimum has three names: lodging, labor, and land; and one spiritual name: spiritual freedom, which includes religious freedom, the right to education and other civil rights.”

These are commendable words, but when one looks at the history and strategy of the Catholic Church in carrying out its agenda, we do not see the respect of religious minorities but repeated and forceful efforts through the use of the state to suppress liberty. The gentle and appealing calls of the bishop of Rome to care for creation and help men and women escape extreme poverty are touching, relevant, and even biblical. But the values of Christ and Scripture must be in harmony with the methods of heaven.

The Bible directly speaks to our times and the forces at play in our world today. With shocking accuracy we are presented with a prophetic description of a religious institution that appears genuine, but in the end it functions like a beast. A man—his office and his institution—is predicted to reach out to the world’s most powerful government and enforce legislation that will not protect the religious rights of a specific minority who “keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus” (Revelation 14:12).

Watch Revelation: The Bride, the Beast & Babylon to unfold the messages of Revelation 12 and 17, and then decide for yourself if the world voice you are hearing represents the truth of Scripture.
