(Corinthians 6:9-19) “You know perfectly well that people who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God: people of immoral lives, idolaters, adulterers, catamites, sodomites, thieves, usurers, drunkards, slanders and swindlers will never inherit the kingdom of God.”
The pope is extremely mature. He is surpassingly humble, has a great love for the poor and marginalized, is fearless when heading into hostile places, and has a great love for Jesus Christ and His Church.Yes if one judges the pope by human reason. But if one uses the written Word of God, then the pope is evil.
If someone can't see that, then they are the blind ones.
34 I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another.
35 This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
Nope, not evil.
(1 Corinthians 5:11) “What I wrote was that you should not associate with a brother Christian who is leading an immoral life, or is a usurer, or idolatrous, or a slanderer, or a drunkard or is dishonest; you should not even eat a meal with people like that.”
his Pope wants people who are divorced and remarried, and homosexuals to be accepted by the church. Paul told us to have nothing to do with a brother Christian who is leading an immoral life.
Sodomites, and divorced people are leading immoral life, and scripture does not say to love them, but to have nothing to do with them.
Disobey God makes one evil.
I see that you get your news from the secular media, who report things from the point of view of the world. I will interpret them from you from a Catholic worldview, which I share with the pope.
The pope didn't say that people who are manifestly in sin should receive communion. He said, I quote, "A gay person who is seeking God, who is of good will -- well, who am I to judge him?"
Notice the phrase "who is seeking God, who is of good will". "Good will" means that he is seeking God's will, which is not to sin, including the sin of a homosexual act.
Church teaching is that, before one who has sinned may receive communion, one must repent of any mortal sin, including homosexual acts and adultery. The world has combined who
a person is with what
they do, in the case of so-called "homosexuals". As Catholics, we do not. We see the dignity in EVERY person, and recognize that EVERY person is called to try to do God's will, despite any fallen tendencies, including same-sex attraction among others. So a person that the world calls a homosexual, the Pope rightly sees as a person, a person who is in need of God's mercy, just as we all do. So these "homosexuals" are called to be chaste, and if they repent of their sin, then they rightly may receive communion.
Furthermore, the pope with regard to communion is seeking ways to try to help people who are in so-called "second marriages" to come back to Church so that they can receive communion again. He is simply seeking pastoral ideas to rectify their situation. The worldly seem threatened by open dialog, especially when people who profess things outside of church teaching write their ideas down, as if that is more powerful than actual thought. There is no change in the rules, and people living in adulterous second marriages still must not receive communion, and that cannot change because the words of our Lord will not change. But in mercy the Church tries to find ways within the moral order to help people escape from the slavery of sin, and being in an adulterous marriage is certainly a sinful yoke. So pastorally, the Pope shows great love for these people, but not at the expense of skirting the moral order.
You have misjudged Pope Francis on these issues because perhaps you don't see the world from a Catholic worldview or don't see the whole picture.
