Pope “Francis”; and Mary…more Important than Jesus Christ?

September 16, 2014

Pope Francis About To Decree Virgin Mary To Be More Important Than Jesus Christ?
For most of the world, Pope Francis is the one pope that everyone seems to like. With is open mind and open attitude to other religions, as well as his more humanist approach to being Catholic, many have fallen under his spell of universal peace. The Inquisitr reported numerous times on the pope’s actions that appeal to others. This includes stating that atheists are also saved, inviting Muslims to pray Islamic prayers at the Vatican, and even stating that Evangelizing is one thing that doesn’t equate to personal happiness.
However, many Evangelical Christians are not happy with the pope. With reports such as Pope Francis saying the only way to God is through the Catholic Church (and not Jesus Christ, who said He was the way) to promoting Chrislam (A religion made by combining Christianity and Islam together), it is now wonder Christ followers are upset. Now they are getting upset again because Pope Francis is about to decree the Virgin Mary to be the fourth entity in the Trinity (which makes it a Quartet).
According to an article by Vatican Radio, it reports that Pope Francis attended the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows on Monday morning Mass at Casa Santa Marta. He made a reflection on the Virgin Mary, on how she learned, obeyed, and suffered at the foot of the Cross.

“And this is our hope. We are not orphans, we have Mothers: Mother Mary. But the Church is Mother and the Mother Church is anointed when it takes the same path of Jesus and Mary: the path of obedience, the path of suffering, and when she has that attitude of continually learning the path of the Lord. These two women – Mary and the Church – carry on the hope that is Christ, they give us Christ, they bring forth Christ in us. Without Mary, there would be no Jesus Christ; without the Church, we cannot go forward.”

The argument being presented is that Jesus Christ, the one who says that the only way to the Father is through Me, has been demoted to third place. By stating that without Mary, there would be no Jesus Christ, and with no church, they cannot move forward, Pope Francis effectually placed the Virgin Mary at the Godhead level.
Now The End Begins actually followed up on this news in which they related Pope Francis promoting the Virgin Mary to the status of God by citing verses 4 to 6 in the seventeenth chapter in the Book of Revelation.

“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, mystery, Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.”

Another thing to take notice is that the Godhead has appeared together numerous times, even in the Old Testament, meaning that Jesus Christ has existed even before he was born from the Virgin Mary. Good example is the first chapter of Genesis in which Soldier of Christ details that both the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit are present during creation. And added note; the Virgin Mary – though Pope Francis has promoted her to Godhead level – is not mentioned.
What do you think of Pope Francis’ promotion of the Virgin Mary? Is he truly demoting Jesus Christ by placing higher importance on the Virgin Mary or are the semantics just being taken too literally?

*This was taken from, The Inquisitor!

  1. Again, I am not sure how far I can take some of this? But I am most sure myself that Papal Catholicism has long taken Mary, the Mother of the Incarnate Jesus, way too far! Such as Mediatrix of All Graces! Note as the Council of Ephesus, I do see Mary as the “Theotokos”, i.e. the God bearer! (The historical Incarnation alone)

    • But it is nonsense that the Papacy can pontificate concerning the Virgin Mary! Scripture say’s nothing about her sinlessness (kept from sin at birth) or assumption! She was set apart by the grace of God for the Incarnation, but the holiness was In Christ, not Mary! “the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.” (Lk. 1: 35)

      • But, yes.. ‘Ever Virgin’.. Even Calvin held this!

      • Colin permalink

        Yep I am fine to this point. Theotokos seems to me a self evident truism and I have not problem at all with it. Though I can understand why the Church Society, R T Kendall (see Understanding Theology) and others caution against its use because of the assorted baggage which often accompanies it.

        But as you know from other exchanges I cannot accept PV either. For me the Scriptural evidence negates it. And that to me outweighs even Luther Zwingli and Wesley. On Calvin, my brother’s view, finding nothing of note in the Institutes and only ambiguity in his commentaries, is that at best he saw it as a ‘might be’, but did not regard it as a certain given. And Calvin also cautioned against “impious speculation” – which works both ways of course, though it leaves the doctrine as secondary, not a prime requirement of faith.

        Neither do I agree that not remaining a virgin is at all necessary. We can never take away the reality and depth Mary’s submission to God, her placing at risk her own, her family’s not to mention Joseph’s, reputation. I have unashamedly suggested in my current church and other scenarios that those of us of a Protestant disposition are at risk of ignoring and failing to honour the example of committed discipleship she gives us.

        So I also would regard a move to elevate Mary even further to be further cause not to be enthusiastic on any attempts at union. Incidentally, a Roman catholic young lady (well 2-3 yrs younger than me) who worked for me c 25 years ago once tried to explain their devotion in terms of Father Son and Holy Mother. Ouch! As bad as Father Son and Holy Book.

      • @Colin: Yes, thanks for some moderation on the subject! I have never heard of “Father Son and Holy Book”? I will have to remember that one! 😉

        Btw, I of course lean (rather hard ;)) toward Mary’s PV! Some of the best arguments I have seen were older Roman Catholic scholars… noting texts like Mark 6: 3…”THE son of Mary, etc. One and only. See too, Matt. 27: 56 / Luke 24: 10. The relationship of James to Joseph, Simon and Jude – James and Joseph are clearly “uterine” brothers (Mk. 15: 40, 47 ; 16: 1). The position of Simon and Jude is not so clear. However, they are always named together, next to James in the list of the Apostles and next to James and Joseph in the list of the ‘brethren of the Lord’ ; Simon is called by Hegesippus the son of Cleophas (Eusebius, Hist. Eccl. 3: 11, I) ; and Jude gives himself the title ‘brother of James’ in the first verse of his own epistle (cf. also Lk. 6: 16). It is then, at least probable that they are full brothers of James and Joseph, having the same parents, Mary and Cleophas, and therefore bearing the same relationship of cousin to our Lord.”

        As to Calvin, it just appears who ya read! But I would see him connect the issue to the Incarnation itself, and of course here Mary is a vessel in herself! (Matt. 1: 18-25)

  2. Reblogged this on Wake up World and commented:
    Anything or anyone who prays other than to our Lord and savior is rooted in Satan. Whether they know or not! However God judges the heart.

  3. The Holy Spirit came upon Mary – she did nothing by herself – giving her the courage to accept God’s comma
    and to her as his chosen vessel to carry the Christ.
