The Most Cringeworthy Thing Francis Does

The Bear has noticed that whenever Pope Frances wants to destroy a doctrine of the Church, or promote mortal sin, he is often not content to merely do so on his own. Instead, he frequently enlists accomplices.

Most recently, Christ was dragged into whatever "scandalous, impure and threatening" designs Francis has on the family. There is no sin so foul that Christ cannot make fair by a miracle!

When Francis wants to erase heresy and pursue his pan-Christian fantasy, why he says it's really the Holy Spirit at work, not Francis.

And then of course, there's always the "God of Surprises" to cover whatever crackbrain ideas he wants to foist upon his poor, suffering sheep.

We are told to do God's will.

Pope Francis seems to have it backwards. God is always doing Francis' will.

Although it does not, perhaps, apply exactly, the Bear always thinks of this when Pope Francis pulls this trick:
Amen I say to you, that all sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and the blasphemies wherewith they shall blaspheme: But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost, shall never have forgiveness, but shall be guilty of an everlasting sin. (Mark 3:28-29)
Of course, you might say, well, he's the Pope, and when he says God is a God of Surprises, Christ changes moral law on a whim, and the Holy Spirit doesn't care about dogma anymore, then that's the way it is.

Except it isn't. The Catholic God (you know, the one Francis doesn't believe in), is not some mad horror from H.P. Lovecraft. He does not change. The Book of Hebrews says, "Jesus Christ, yesterday, and to day; and the same for ever."

We have a Pope, not an Oracle. The Bear is sorry to presume to teach Pope Francis how to be Pope, but the job description is not "utter frequent cryptic statements that can only alarm and discourage the faithful, while maintaining for yourself plausible deniability by refusing to communicate clearly."

God is not mocked. The Bear shudders every time Francis casually invokes God for one of his own novelties or horrors.

  1. As a comment elsewhere noted: even though this pope says that God is a "God of surprises:, He is NOT a God of contradiction. Doctrine does not change. And this pope speaks of 'the spirit" which does not necessarily mean The Holy Spirit! Remember that disasterous 'spirit' of Vatican II?

  2. Yeah. And note how in the clip you may have in mind the "Holy" is left off: “All of us have caused these divisions in history, for many — but not good — reasons. But now is the time that the Spirit is making us think how these divisions will no longer do, that these divisions are a counter-witness and we must do everything to go together” in prayer, charity, work and reading the Bible because “then the Spirit will do the rest.”

  3. "God is a God of Surprises, Christ changes moral law on a whim, and the Holy Spirit doesn't care about dogma anymore, then that's the way it is."

    Indeed, those who want their sins approved will believe this whole-heartedly. That's what the heresy of modernism is all about, the Church keeping up with the times, being relevant to today. Of course that is the itching ears syndrome, 2 Timothy 4:3. They will also attack us who believe in God's Unchanging Truth and the dogma of sin as unmerciful, rigid, neo-pelagian and the like. Be ready for the coming "oath" that Francis will demand that people sign, but this time it will be an oath FOR modernism, rather than against as Pope St. Pius X established and the Vatican II hierarchy abolished.

  4. "to pray fervently for this intention, so that Christ can take even what might seem to us impure, scandalous or threatening, and turn it -- by making it part of his 'hour' -- into a miracle. Families today need this miracle!" Pope Francis Guayaquil Ecuador 6 JULY 2015
    What the Pope really means:
    "to pray fervently for this intention (that SODOMY be acceptable), so that Christ can take even what might seem to us impure (SODOMY), scandalous(SODOMY) or threatening (SODOMY), and turn it -- by making it part of his 'hour' -- into a (SODOMY) miracle. Families today need this (SODOMY) miracle!" Pope Francis

    1. and even more upsetting is that the "hour" Francis is talking about is Our Lord's hour(s) of suffering on The Cross.

  5. Ambiguity? "But let your word 'yes be 'yes,' and your 'no be 'no.' Anything more than this is from the evil one." Matthew 5:37.

  6. I read another good article on the 'Saint Louis Catholic' blog. Title: 'At what point do we start to take a good look at Francis'? I do think the blogger was trying to sound the alarm for some that are hiding their heads in the sand. Even non Catholics are beginning to look at him cross eyed. I had an acquaintance that is not Catholic say to me later in the day: 'Are you guys wondering what in the world is wrong with this Pope? He is saying such crazy things!' And this from a NON CATHOLIC! Every Catholic in the world should be 'starting to take a good look' at this guy, except of course the ones that want to be confirmed in sin. When non Catholics can see it, you KNOW we have a huge problem.

  7. Is it true that if a Pope speaks and advocates heresy he renders himself excommunicated and accordingly no longer the Pope? It is with this in mind that we believe (guaranteed by the Holy Spirit) the Pope cannot err in official statements on faith and morals.

    1. I think it is legitimate to wonder in what sense he is the Pope. It's a puff of magic white smoke all it takes, or does he need to demonstrate a good grasp of sound Catholicism?

  8. Now that you're no longer Catholic, what church will you go to? Or are you just going to stay home?

    1. I'll go to the Church where i nailed my foot to the floor in front of my favorite pew, a measure necessitated by Pope Francis.

    2. You're obviously confused; you're not Catholic - you're merely a disciple of FancisChurch.

  9. CinB....you are a goofball. Just keep your head in the sand and move along - all is right in your world.

  10. The "God of Surprises". The surprise will be that Truth has not changed.

  11. Not only most cringe-worthy. It's got to be most offensive. Is it heresy? blasphemy? for him to misuse God's name and Sacred Scripture and Tradition so wrongly?

    1. Could be heresy (and usually seems to this simple Bear to be). When Christ warned of the unforgivable sin against the Holy Spirit it was attributing miracles to the devil. If you attribute the Devil's work to the Holy Spirit, how is that any different? I don't think it is. That's called blasphemy.

    1. Francis is the False Prophet, not the antichrist. Maitreya is the antichrist, the one promoted by Benjamin Creme. The false prophet leads the coming one-world paganized global church (e.g. UN URI) to ultimately worship the antichrist.

    2. I'm curious as to your clerical status, RC. As to the other, we certainly have enough evidence to draw certain die conclusions, but I dunno about identifying the False Prophet and the Anti Christ yet. I agree we appear to be moving toward at least a pan-Christian religion, and that the UN is probably going to play a role. But there are powerful contrary forces in play, too. These are unlikely to go away anytime soon, wouldn't you agree? As for the "Luciferian" religion, this is already alive and well in the UK, the US, and elsewhere. It is also miniscule and hard to take seriously on a large scale. (One reason people should never mess with occultism, no matter how benign it appears!!!)

    3. MD -- anything that might as easily be explained by him being a Latin American goofball bishop is probably a better bet than him being the Antichrist. We'll keep our eyes on him, though.

    4. We might be open to False Prophet ideas. I had this very thought about the gospel at Log Church today.

  13. Yeah, the God of surprises... How about three days of darkness and a rain of supernatural fire?

    SURPRISE!

  14. Ann later corrected this, saying that she had it from reliable people that the antichrist will be a layman, not a priest and definitely not the pope. His candidacy for False Prophet, however, is still wide open.
