Finally V1catholic, here is something I posted regarding the Pope saying Bible believing Christians have an illness. See if you can love the truth and reject the rebellion against the direct commands of Jesus. It is a tremendous challenge you have put to us so I hope you don't mind that I have responded in love, for this is no small matter and many are sucked into religious acts that Jesus said nullify the Word of God.
Always remember a text out of context is a pretext and the straw man example the pope gives allows him to claim the false victory over such protestant ideological error.
The pope says "when a Christian becomes a disciple of the ideology, he has lost the faith: he is no longer a disciple of Jesus, he is a disciple of this attitude of thought… For this reason Jesus said to them: ‘You have taken away the key of knowledge.’
Let's be perfectly clear: that is not what Jesus taught at all. Francis is telling porkies and then quoting Luke 11 to make it sound Biblical so let's go there but begin earlier to get the full meaning. We will start with a woman wanting to begin the RC ideology of adoring the virgin Mary. She was loud and full of emotion that would have got the crowd going except Jesus put an immediate stop on the Satanic diversion...
27As he said these things, a woman in the crowd raised her voice and said to him, “Blessed is the womb that bore you, and the breasts at which you nursed!” 28But he said, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!”
This is reminiscent of Jesus in Matt.12 when Mary desired to speak with Jesus but got nowhere... 46 While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?
49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
Jesus made it very clear that obedience to Him and His Word meant ignoring Mary as having any joint role in His ministry, yet the pope is busy dedicating the world to the blessed virgin. In official RC doctrine, if Jesus is hesitant to grant the prayer request of a member of the RC church who has packaged their prayer to God via some saint, Mary will bear her breast and when Jesus sees the breast He sucked upon He caves in and grants the request.
Then Jesus warns of seeking signs because an evil generation seeks signs, yet the pope leads the world into believing in the apparitions of the virgin Mary and adoring her as co-redeemer. A believer cannot become a saint unless there are miraculous signs and the title is conferred on them by the pope, yet this is a title given by God alone to all who believe in Christ.
Later in the discourse Jesus challenges the lawyers for spilling the blood of the prophets in times past and sure enough, the Vatican presided over the torture and murder of millions of believers. Because of its ideology it justified the most inhumane suffering until it was drunk on the blood of the saints.
Finally we get to the pope's partial quote where Jesus says Woe to you lawyers for you have taken away the key of knowledge for you did not enter and you hindered those who were entering. Now let's just cross reference that with Matt.23:13 where Jesus said this about the key of knowledge and read a little earlier to see if there is more light....
In V5 Jesus warns about doing religious works to be seen by others. You only have to look at the glory of the RC church and then Google the Vatican bank scandals or the pedophilia of the priesthood to contrast the external glory with the rot within.
Then in V8 Jesus commands us NOT to call any priest "father" and once again the pope leads the false RC church in open rebellion against the command of Jesus. Not only is the priest called father, but he is Jesus. Mother Teresa couldn't answer the call for help in another nation as there was no priest to go there so Jesus would not be there for her.
Now let's go back to the pope's words except I am going to correct a few little errors...
"when a Roman Catholic becomes a disciple of the papish ideology, he has lost the faith: he is no longer a disciple of Jesus, he is a disciple of this attitude of thought… For this reason Jesus said to them: ‘You have taken away the key of knowledge, for you refuse to enter yourselves and thus hinder all those who would enter.’
