Attached is a link to an article in which Pope Francis states that Christians, Jews, and Muslims are the same. What this pope does not know is the difference between right and wrong, black and white. To me, it is clear that all three religions worship one God. They all claim their God to be the one true God. Why then, do the radical Muslims believe in a religion based on death, and the Christians and Jews believe in a faith based on the sanctity of life? Pope Francis obviously has no clue. The logic doesn’t hold up if the premise is correctly stated. It will hold up if stated like this:
Christians believe in one true God.
Muslims believe in one true God.
Therefore, Christians and Muslims believe in the same God.
If I use another premise the logic changes.
Muslims believe killing infidels is the way to heaven.
Christians believe that preserving life is the way to heaven.
Therefore, Muslims are different than Christians.
In previous articles, I have stated that these two paths do not make sense, they are direct opposite and contradictory. God is never contradictory. God is not confused about what is right and what is wrong. He doesn’t need lawyers or theologians to determine which argument holds. On the other hand, we know from Scripture that there are two kinds of angels, good angels and bad angels. Bad angels do not worship God, but good angels do. It is my contention that Pope Francis does not hold the good angel, bad angel theory as valid since he cannot see christians as being good angels and radical muslims as bad angels. Francis sees only good angels. I commend him for that vision, but I condemn the concept. Black is not white, and white is not black. They are two distinct colors. Mix them, and you get something which is a blend of the two, and neither is pure anymore. Perhaps that is what Francis is referring to when he says Christians and Muslims are a blend of humans that we must learn to love, and deal with.
