The sweet talking deceptive Pope!
Rome has many methods to ensnare, but Rome never changes.
Thanks for posting Maria.

Cathy, his sweetness is hard to listen to, especially in Italian.
Lord bless you, sister. In Heaven you will know where all your little Bible tracts got to.
I started laughing when the pope added his theology quickly at the end of the song.
It is no laughing matter, however, that popular “Christians” like Kenneth Copeland , for one, thinks that the Reformation is no longer a necessary part of our history. Very sad to see “protestants” bowing towards Rome.
This little cartoon sums up the current pope’s efforts imo.
Thank you for sharing, Maria.
Chris, it does hit the nail on the head, for sure! Glad you watched and weighed in on this!
It is an interesting post and, I think, the timing is good. I have not done a post on the passing of Billy Graham and I’m not sure that I want to.
A friend of mine did a post the day of his passing and wondered what people thought about Mr. Graham’s influence on our culture. He mostly was asking if others thought Billy was a Universalist.
I had to be honest. Billy Graham gave some great messages and many became Christians through his ministry. At the same time, I am of the opinion that if all of those who went forward at Billy Graham crusades indeed became disciples that there is a good chance that abortion would have never become legal in America.
If I am right, it is not Billy Graham’s fault that abortion became legal and afterwards the moral foundations of a pretty Christian society continued to unravel at a quick pace. The blame for that lies at the feet of the millions of people who consider themselves Christians and either say (said) nothing on the topic or still support it, and a large part of society that has become very rebellious.
The thing I couldn’t have done, or if I had of done it I would have had to publicly acknowledge it as a great mistake in judgment, is the fact that Billy sent people back to Catholic churches.
As I understand it, many “wayward Catholics” went back to being under the influence of Rome after Billy Graham crusades.
It will be interesting to see how his son continues the ministry. I heard him speak at his father’s funeral and he gave a very good message.
Chris, did you mean to make this comment on this post?
I can see why you are confused, Maria. Now that I look at it, my first few sentences are kinda “out there.” I did mean to make this comment here. I’m not the most knowledgeable about all things Catholic but “funny bones” gave me a place to vent my mixed feelings about the passing of a man whom I admired as a kid. My mom would watch his crusades on TV all of the time. I always liked him but later discovered that he had high things to say about the pope. I’ve also learned that I should not advise anyone to follow the pope or his priests.
Chris, the decision of Billy Graham and his Association to refer Roman Catholics back to Roman Catholic parishes was a betrayal. My husband and I watched the crusades regularly and his little grandson used to watch with us and wanted to do what those on TV were doing – to put his trust in Jesus Christ. It’s perplexing – such fruitfulness and such a lack of discernment in Mr. Graham.
I agree and I felt comfortable sharing my thoughts with you because I know your past and I trust those who come to your site expect to see discussions about things like this. There are so many who have no idea that this happened or they just don’t care. The latter type are, of course, the worst of the two.
Chris, you’re right that not caring is the worse of the two.
To enjoy serious discussion without contention is a happy thing!
I wonder if it has always been so difficult to have serious discussion without contention? People in our times seem so sensitive if they aren’t agreed with no matter how small the issue. I hope my observation is wrong but I’ve noticed the name calling in many areas, particularly the evolution/creation issue.
Chris, it seems that the contention is nothing new but that it is magnified by the new social media. This reminds me of the Psalmist’s prayer to be kept safe from the strife of tongues. You’re right that the Creation and evolution controversy is a place where this is seen a lot!
Another blogger who is homeschooling provides lots of good and edifying material on the Lord’s Creation, for example,
Thank you for the link, Maria. This blog has shown up a few times in my reader recently. I had better go and check it out.
I hope you have a blessed day!
You know what is sad is when a satire video has more truth than some of the more serious theological blogs and books out there who seek for Romanism’s approval
Very true, Pastor Jim. It’s insightful and doesn’t soft peddle its message. That’s a positive aspect of satire, for sure.
