Breitbart: “Pope Francis demanded Poland “overcome fear” and open their borders to Muslim migrants who are “fleeing wars and hunger”. The pontiff claimed wars are nothing to do with religion as “all religions want peace”.
As Europe is beset almost daily by Islamic terror attacks, the Pope chastised Poland’s government for refusing to accept thousands of migrants from the Middle East and Africa. He said opening the country’s borders would take “great wisdom and compassion”.
“We must not be afraid to say the truth, the world is at war because it has lost peace.”
Opinion: Wait, what? You have to actually have something to lose it. A quick review of, oh, say the last 6000 years, would indicate that we lost peace a very, very long time ago.
I get the strong feeling that this pope, in an effort to defend both progressive ideology and Islam, which is somewhat shocking with the beheading of a priest on Tuesday, has completely ignored the Bible.
Genesis 3:1-5 tells us how the earth lost its peace:
“Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”
Right there, your holiness, the peace of the world was on the line and in Genesis 3:6 that battle for peace was lost.
“So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate”.
It was all over, the peace was lost right there and then. But our loving Father always provides a way for forgiveness (Genesis 3:15) no matter how serious the crime.
“And I will put enmity between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.”
This is the first promise of the Messiah. God said there would be enmity (blood feud) between Satan’s seed (demons) and the seed of the woman (promised Messiah).
God promised that eventually the serpent would bruise the heel of the seed of the woman. However, the seed of the woman would bruise (or crush) the head of the serpent.
And only then, will the world find peace.
“Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years..” Revelation 20:1-2
