What is the financial investment of Pope Francis in the “weapon industry?” not only the cost of the weapons and ammunition but those whom he equips with their (function) practice and potential defensive, use?

It’s always the height of hypocrisy when well-protected influential people utter declarations against weapons. In effect they disavow their fellow humans, the Lord God-given natural right to defend themselves and their families. They also insidiously and capriciously would deny (common) people the free-will choice, to defend themselves with whatever weapon, they so choose.

Those who buy their personal choice of firearm weapons are apparently condemned by Pope Francis. Yet, he exempts himself from his own proclamation. Note: Above apparent pic source with (later) added caption: “Pope says weapons manufacturers can’t call themselves Christian” – https://veritasdomain.wordpress.com/2015/06/25/pope-says-weapons-manufacturers-cant-call-themselves-christian/

  1. This is the same “holy father” who goes around flashing “devil horns” hand signs at the great unwashed masses who come to venerate him.

    I’ll never forget when the pontiff stated that the human life of Jesus Christ “ended in failure, the failure of the Cross.”

    • Bobo –

      I can understand why the youtube you reference was a title that ended with a question mark:

      “Did Pope Francis Say Jesus Death On The Cross Was A Failure?” The answer to that question is, definitely, “No!”

      To be certain, Pope Francis receives much criticism and justifiably so. But what he stated, taken in context of what he proclaimed, is Scripturally correct. Jesus’ own words bear this out when He talked about the “grain of wheat:”

      “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.” – John 12:24 – KJV

      Also:

      “…….So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body…….” 1 Corinthians 15:42-44

      “………For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory………” – 1 Corinthians 15:53-54 – KJV

      The Scriptural principle of what Pope Francis was alluding to, was what some call, “The Theology of the Cross.” – http://www.opc.org/new_horizons/NH05/10b.html

      Pope Francis was noting that (according to human thinking) Christ’s life ended in failure. But, we know that such an end of the (earthly) Christ, gave rise to His glorious resurrection. It was all Creator God the Father’s eternal (salvation) design for His creation. Christ coming into our world as the Second Adam (1 Corinthians 15).

      What was expressed by Pope Francis was a divine paradox:

      As to the pope making the flashing “devil horns hand signs,” that is very troubling. Some say that it is a hand sign for love, such as a person would say: “I love you all.” But, that same “flashing” hand sign has been interpreted by others to be a direct satanic sign.

      • Thanks for all the Scriptural references, but if one takes into consideration that the Cross, the Blood, and the Resurrection were the very reasons that Jesus Christ came to earth, then we realize that the pontiff does not really understand the Christian doctrine at all.

        Bergoglio statements may be Scripturally “correct” to some degree, as you noted, but the purpose of the Lord Jesus’ ministry and His sojourn on earth was to lay down His human life so that we might have Life Everlasting. His sole purpose in coming here was to die that we might have life, and that we might have it more abundantly.

        The Cross, the Blood, and the Resurrection are all clear signs of the success of Jesus Christ’s Life by the definition of His Life’s Purpose in the paragraph above.

        I note your literal-minded interpretation of the pontiff’s statements, but Bergoglio was irresponsible in uttering such statements to the majority of people who do not know or understand the Scriptures. The great unwashed masses who idolize the pontiff take his word as “the Gospel,” and thus they heard him say that the Life of Jesus Christ ended in failure. From that statement, most people would conclude that if Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, died as a failure, then they can live their lives any way they choose.

        The pope is supposed to be the titular head of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. What he stated in that message was misleading – and very irresponsible.

        • Bobo –

          I intend to get back with you concerning your response. I think that I can understand your concern (as you say) about:

          “………The great unwashed masses who idolize the pontiff take his word as ‘the Gospel,’ and thus they heard him say that the Life of Jesus Christ ended in failure.”

          However, why should Pope Francis, you or I be forced to cater to ignorance of the Scriptures? Why should any professed Christian have to dumb-down his responses to the Scriptures and cower to the lowest “common denominator?”

          I think that I’ll examine his whole speech at the time that he made this statement about Christ. You and I know, (I’m sure) that mainstream media (and other sources) have a penchant for taking what any pope says and “running with it.”

          Furthermore, I think that you are remiss in giving (even the pope) some “credit where credit is due.” Your up-front response (to my reply) was essentially in agreement to what I stated, complimenting Pope Francis. But then you “recoil” (as it were) and take a hard-hearted approach against the Roman Catholic leader. What skin is off your hide to give him some approbation? Are you one of those Protestants who don’t have any time or consideration for Catholic Christians?
