Pope Francis is the first Jesuit Pope. Irvin Baxter of Endtime Ministries notes that liberation theology is embraced by the Jesuit order. According to Baxter, liberation theology teaches that if Jesus were on earth today, He would be a Marxist, taking from the rich and giving to the poor.
“Time Is Running Out”
During his South American trip, Pope Francis repeated some of the themes of his Encyclical on Climate Change issued last month, “Laudato Si.” Pope Francis said that time was running out to save the planet from perhaps irreversible harm to the ecosystem. Even though at least 19 members of Congress have made comments repudiating man-made global warming, the Senate had agreed with the Pope’s position, and voted last month, 98 to 1, that climate change is not a hoax, and that it is, at least in part, caused by human activity.
Planet Stewardship or Communism?
Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh revealed the communist implications of the Pope’s Encyclical on Climate Change when she did her own translation from the Italian. In a portion criticizing the abuse of “our sister Mother Earth,” Dr. Johnson’s translation reads, “Any aspiration to care for and improve the world requires changing profoundly lifestyles, the patterns of production and consumption, the established structures of power that today govern society.” These phrases are very similar, according to Dr. Johnson, to wordings found in Agenda 21 and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, which aim to destroy capitalism, not save the globe from ecological annihilation. Pope Francis will be at the United Nations on September 25, 2015, to launch the Sustainable Development Summit, a new plan to micromanage the entire globe, because all human activity affects the environment in some way.
Joint Meeting of U.S. Congress
Pope Francis will greet a joint meeting of Congress on September 24, 2015. Everyone gathered at the West Front of the Capital will be able to see the event displayed on huge Jumbotron screens, so that the public gathered in the National Mall can watch the event along with those in the House chamber. This will be the first time that the leader of the world’s Catholics has addressed Congress. The chamber will be packed with lawmakers and dignitaries who have gathered from around the nation to welcome the Pope. It will be similar in scope and pomp to a State of the Union address.
