BIN: Pope Francis led a summit of Christian leaders on how to promote peace in the Middle East on Saturday and said building walls, occupying territories and religious fanaticism would not resolve conflict in the region.
Francis also repeated his view that the “status quo” of the contested city of Jerusalem should be respected, and backed a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian dispute.
Francis convened the summit in the southern Italian city of Bari that for centuries has been a gateway to the Middle East and home to the relics of St. Nicholas, a figure venerated in both the Western and Eastern branches of Christianity.
“Let there be an end to the few profiting from the sufferings of many. No more occupying territories and thus tearing people apart,” he said. more …
Opinion: Key word: occupy. To even insinuate that a non-people group that was invented by Yasser Arafat are the rightful owners of the land that God gave to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and their descendants after them (Genesis 17:7-8), goes beyond ignorance all the way to willful blindness.
The only way to explain the Catholic pontiff’s attitude towards God’s chosen people and their eternal capital is with prophecy:
“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem”.
Satan’s greatest deceptions:
- The church replaced Israel in God’s plan, Augustine, 4th century AD
- Killers of Christ: John Chrysostom, Archbishop of Constantinople 4th century AD
- The church is Israel: John Calvin, 16th century AD
And the denominations said it was good.
And it will not end until Jesus returns.
