Quote of the day – Tom, an ex-Catholic for Christ



Revelation 11:15–18

NASB

15 Then the seventh angel sounded; and there were loud voices in heaven, saying,

“The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever.” 16 And the twenty-four elders, who sit on their thrones before God, fell on their faces and worshiped God, 17 saying,

“We give You thanks, O Lord God, the Almighty, who are and who were, because You have taken Your great power and have begun to reign. 18 And the nations were enraged, and Your wrath came, and the time came for the dead to be judged, and the time to reward Your bond-servants the prophets and the saints and those who fear Your name, the small and the great, and to destroy those who destroy the earth.”

Franciscus_kotelIn his Welcome to the Weekend Roundup! – News & Views – 7/28/18, Tom commented on an article in The Guardian, “Pope Francis has utterly failed to tackle the church’s abuse scandal,” with the following words. The article itself is important but Tom hit the nail on the head with his comment. He has stated this before but it is worth repeating:

“Elected to the papacy in 2013 with no obligations to the previous two regimes, Francis was in a position to take decisive and comprehensive action in regards to one of Catholicism’s biggest headaches, the festering pedophile priests and cover-up scandal. I believe Francis’ unexplainable failure to act is part of the Lord’s providence by which the Catholic church continues to be marked by this disgrace.

The Pope deserves our pity. We must pray and labor to make Christ known among all nominal Christians and other unbelievers.

  1. Thanks for the hat tip and link-up, Maria! Yes, as we confront the errors of Catholic doctrine, let us also pray for the lost and reach out to them with the Good News! of salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone!
