Historic: Pope Francis Visits United Arab Emirates For Interreligous Meeting on "Human Brotherhood".
Pope Francis begins 2019 with a historic trip to the United Arab Emirates, in the Middle East. Before flying out to his trip, Pope Francis created a video with a message to the people of the UAE. His message was that of religious inclusion via "human brotherhood". However, when compared to scriptures and the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Apostles, lets see if Pope Francis' message is founded in truth or falsehood.
Pope Francis said to the Islamic leadership of the UAE, "thank you my friend and dear brother the grand imam of al-azhar, Dr Ahmed Al Tayeb...for their courage and will to affirm that faith in God unites and does not divide, it brings us closer despite differences and it distances us from hostility and aversion."
Well lets compare his comments to Jesus. Did the Jews of Jesus time believe in God? They said they did, but their plea to crucify Him-the Son of God, showed the truth of their heart, in that they didn't believe in the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob. So believing in "a god" may unite, yet believing in God-the Father of Jesus Christ, does not unite unbelievers and believers-rather that belief separates.
Jesus embodies truth and His truth divides because that's why truth does. It separates-like a sword. The Vatican wants to bring all people together, like the Tower of Babel, under the pretense of "unity" and "inclusion", but Jesus said, using a sword as a metaphor for truth " 34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. 35 For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; 36 and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’ Matthew 10:34. Also on the topic truth and how Jesus will divide believers and unbelievers, He said on judgement day " All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats." Matthew 25:32
What Pope Francis will not do is affirm that Jesus IS THE ONLY WAY to God, as Lord Jesus said " 6 ...“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." John 14:6. Also Jesus taught that true belief in God, is belief in Him-the Son of God, 40 “He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me." John 10:40.
