Pope Calls for a 'New Global Political Authority'

Pope Francis

(Worthy News)-- Pope Francis will this week call for changes in lifestyles and energy consumption to avert the "unprecedented destruction of the ecosystem" before the end of this century, according to a leaked draft of a papal encyclical. In a document released by an Italian magazine on Monday, the pontiff will warn that failure to act would have "grave consequences for all of us", the UK Guardian reported.

Francis also called for a new global political authority tasked with "tackling … the reduction of pollution and the development of poor countries and regions". His appeal echoed that of his predecessor, pope Benedict XVI, who in a 2009 encyclical proposed a kind of super-UN to deal with the world’s economic problems and injustices.

He immediately makes clear, moreover, that unlike previous encyclicals, this one is directed to everyone, regardless of religion. "Faced with the global deterioration of the environment, I want to address every person who inhabits this planet," the pope wrote. "In this encyclical, I especially propose to enter into discussion with everyone regarding our common home." --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jun/15/pope-francis-destruction-ecosystem-leaked-encyclical" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]

  1. A wolf in sheep clothing. Be aware.......the history of this cult is demonic.......deception in the highest degree.

  2. Pope wants a 1 world political power,islamic prayers to be held at the vatican???? what does that say to you????


    Mat 16:13-19 Tells us of specific instructions given by the Lord Jesus Christ to Peter his apostle how the church was to be built upon Christ the corner stone and after Christ death on the Cross of Calvary; Peter was to continue the Lords ministry of the gospel to be built upon the word of God and not what we are witnessing today as political correctness.

    There is no room in the church for this kind of teaching by the Pope as Global Political Authority; this is not the purpose of the Church: there is no place for compromise of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The church's responsibility is to teach and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ and His saving power over sin.

    If this Pope were more concerned with the purpose of the Church these other matters of world concern would take care of them self through transformation in the hearts of men. You cannot legislate morality but this is what the state attempts to do by removing God from all Public and Private life all around the globe and this Pope is not helping the church but these comments work against the church. There is only one morality and it comes from God Almighty alone and these comments made by the Pope are more in line with Government Mandates than with will of God and His church. Gods will is that all men should come to repentance and accept the Lord Jesus as personal savior and not be beholding to a global political authority.

  4. the pope is catholic and not "Christian", the 2 are very different.
    the pope works according to the elite's plan, like all government puppets.

  5. Just to comment on what anonymous has said. I wonder how the Bishop of Rome will handle the 'living among' Christians and Muslims as a whole will be like. Will the Bishop of Rome be able to keep the Catholics, catholics and what are Muslim sentiments towards Catholics compared to Christians?

  6. The end time world religion..Roman catholic and Muslims..(Rome actually created the Muslim religion circa 500 ad)...
    The pope, will for sure, be the head of this diabolical union....
    Lookout real Christians, there will be a rocky road ahead, until Jesus returns.

  7. In humane nature i see pope crying and pitifully trying to make a safer environment for everyone ....still abig signal from revelation in bible emerges . Lord Jehovah knows our direction to salvation

  8. I Understand That This Pope Is Not A Real Christian And Can We Say He His The Anti Christ Or Workers Of Inquity Only Knows. End Time Aproaches God Will Definitely Destroy All Of Them. What Was The Pope's Aim And Objective To Rule The World? Definitely We Need To Pray For Thier Distructions And God Should Sieze Them From All Thier Power.

  9. Time to understand God's tolerance for real Christians (Christ-followers) to keep using the Catholic term "church" in place of Christianity and/or where ever they meet is Over. The Church age has ended! It has Always been a catholic a heretical term and though the God and Father of Jesus Christ (Y'shua, the Messiah/HaMashiach) tolerated His people being ignorant on this (and so many other things) that time is over! Only those who truly have no clue and no way to check these things out get to be excused. If you have access to the Internet, you can't just remain ignorant of where "church" came form and what it is, who invented the term, all of that.

    Protestants (those who protested Catholicism) give up calling all leading Christian flocks Priests (well, the real ones did) but kept The Church?

    Francis has great plans to unify the Churches as if their is only one. Stop using that term, look at what those words all translated as "church" were and mean. Church is not synonymous with Christianity and Christianity is only one side of "the body of the bride" aka "the second Eve" who is the forgiven one espoused to the second Adam (a biblical name for Jesus/Y'shua).

    Grow up.
