Francis: Islam is Covered Under God’s “Permissive Will”

Edit: just received this content today.

Francis Said God ‘Permits’ Islam or ‘Wants’ Islam? 

By David Martin  

On February 4, 2019, Pope Francis incited controversy by signing a joint statement with the head of Egypt’s al-Azhar Mosque, which states that "diversity of religions" is "willed by God."  

The passage inciting controversy read: 

“Freedom is a right of every person: each individual enjoys the freedom of belief, thought, expression and action. The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings. This divine wisdom is the source from which the right to freedom of belief and the freedom to be different derives. Therefore, the fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion or culture must be rejected, as too the imposition of a cultural way of life that others do not accept.” 

Following this, the pope came under fire from faithful Catholics throughout the world who alleged that Francis was professing heresy by saying that God wills other religions.  

At the General Audience of April 3, Pope Francis appeared to offer clarification of his February 4 statement, saying that God merely "willed to permit" Islam and other religions. His statement reads: 

“Some may wonder: but why does the Pope go visit the Muslims and not only the Catholics? Because there are so many religions, and why are there so many religions? With the Muslims we are descendants of the same Father, Abraham: why does God allow so many religions to exist? God wanted to allow this: the Scholastic theologians referred to  the voluntas permissiva [permissive will] of God. He willed to permit this reality: there are many religions; some are born of culture, but they always look to heaven, they look to God. But what God wills is fraternity among us, and in a special way — hence the reason for this journey — with our brothers, who are sons of Abraham, like us, the Muslims. We must not be afraid of the difference: God has permitted this. We ought to be frightened if we do not work in fraternity, to walk together in life.” 

Without directly mentioning the February 4 statement, Francis now appears to argue that he was referring to God's "permissive will," that God simply permits Islam to exist. And while the Church teaches that God in His permissive will allows evil and error to try us—to see if we will resist—this obviously is not what Francis means.  

While purporting to uphold the truth of voluntas permissiva, he is validating Islam by saying that Muslims are "brothers, who are sons of Abraham" and who "are descendants of the same Father, Abraham." He's saying Islam is a valid religion of God, as if it were an extension of the One Universal Church.

Hence the pope is not speaking of God's permissive will but of what he sees as His ordained will. Note the context in which he made his February 4 statement: 

"The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings." 

Francis obviously meant that diversity of  "colour, sex, race and language are willed by God" in the ordained sense, which they are, so we can only assume he meant "diversity of religions" the same way.  

He now reverts to this "permissive will" explanation, seemingly to escape censure, yet he skillfully seizes on the opportunity to dignify Islam and other religions, saying that "they look to God," as if we were all brothers of the same fold.  

There indeed are non-Catholics who look to God, many of whom will convert in time, but the god that is named and called upon in Islam is no God but a demon with a mask. Mohammad's linking himself to "God" and "Abraham" was only done for deceptive purposes. He was a false prophet so why is Francis dignifying his legacy?  

The Demonic Nature of Islam 

The fact is that the Quran, the Bible of Islam, rejects the person and divinity of Christ and teaches that non-Muslims and Christians should be "slain." Consider these two excerpts from the Quran:  

"Kill them [non-Muslims] wherever you find them." (Quran 2:191) "Slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and lie in wait for them in every ambush." (Quran 9:5) 

Unfortunately, Islam is driven by the devil and has been a major battering ram against the Church for fifteen centuries, and while God in His permissive will has allowed this to try our patients and charity, and our resolution to separate ourselves from its pestilent errors, He certainly hasn’t allowed it for the purpose of “walking together” with them and being one.   

As Catholics, our oneness is with God, not the world, as expressed by the Apostle James who said, "the friendship of this world is the enemy of God" (James 4:4) and that "Whosoever therefore will be a friend of this world, becometh an enemy of God." (4:5)  

True Fraternal Brotherhood 

Catholics need to remind Francis that it is only through CONVERSION that we can become brothers and sisters in Christ. We must reach out and convert Islam and the world, yet Francis told Catholics in Morocco last week NOT to do this, arguing that the Church's mission does not consist in baptizing and converting people but in generating "change." Pope Francis warns Moroccan Christians against ‘proselytism’ This is contradictory, since the Church's commission from Christ is to change the world through conversion.             

3 / 3
Hence it does not appear that Francis believes in being brothers and sisters in God. But let him prove himself. If he will preach that the mission of the Church is to bring the knowledge of God to the world and "teach all nations" (Matt. 28:19), and if he will extend the charitable invitation to all peoples to leave their particular creeds and miseries and convert to the Catholic Church, then we can believe him.  

The Church infallibly teaches that there is no salvation outside the Catholic Church (extra ecclesiam nulla salus), so unless Francis believes that diversity of religions is permissively willed by God to elicit the Church's response to reach out and convert these religions, he is denying dogma, dignifying fake religion, and withholding the mercy of God from mankind.

“pluralism and diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language willed by God” para straight from the Enlightenment -

He is a liar and deceiver. He says permissive will then describes active will. Peronist double talk.

The doctrine of God's 'permissive will' is standard to Catholic theology and magisterial teaching. Try original sin for starters. God does not dehumanise people by forcing them to detour around their free will.

Not only are Francis and his people Muslim apologists, but they are also lovers of LGBT sodomites and perverts as well. "Cardinal" Parolin met with them today, and Francis later in the day (there's photos of his receiving a group of pro-gay,.pro-LGBT people begging the Vatican to denounce persecution of LGBT's and to proclaim their lifestyle good and normal and proclaim there's nothing wrong with it.

Whose willing to bet Francis'll do it?

"Catholics need to remind Francis that it is only through CONVERSION that we can become brothers and sisters in Christ."

Really? When did Christ say to his followers: "You need to remind the High Priest..."? This is what He said: "Let them alone: they are blind, and leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into the pit." Or. "My sheep hear my voice: and I know them, and they follow me."

How did thomas weinandy get ordained? Surely he never reminded his seminary rector that there's no salvation outside of the church, or he wouldn't have been. Here is Weinandy spreading VC2 Lies about the Jews: "While others were also killed by the Nazis,only the Jews were singled out as a race. Why? Consumed by the ideology of Aryan supremacy, Hitler could not tolerate the presence of a race that professed itself to be and was considered by Christians to be “chosen.” Never before had the Jewish people suffered solely and explicitly for being “the chosen people of God.”

Even the Jews don't claim that: "Hitler was a soldier in the German army. At the end of the war he, and many other German soldiers like him, could not get over the defeat of the German Empire. The German army command spread the myth that the army had not lost the war on the battlefield, but because they had been betrayed. By a ‘stab in the back’, as it was called at the time. Hitler bought into the myth: JEWS and COMMUNISTS had betrayed the country and brought a left-wing government to power that had wanted to throw in the towel."

Here is a quote from Hitler: "Today I will once more be a prophet: If the international Jewish financiers in and outside Europe should succeed in plunging the nations once more into a world war, then the result will not be the bolshevization of the earth, and thus the victory of Jewry, but the annihilation of the Jewish race in Europe!"

Here's some more VC2 WEINANDY: "To be chosen by God, to be covenanted to the all-good God, means that one must bear the wrath of evil. Everyone who bears the mark of God’s goodness, everyone who is loved by God, everyone who is chosen to be peculiarly God’s own, will inevitably experience evil’s lash... it was precisely because the Jews were God’s chosen people that evil sought them out and in so doing unintentionally confirmed that such was indeed the case. The ambiguity that so often resided within Jewish suffering is now gone. They now suffer for no other reason than that they are the chosen people of God."

But what about the 110 million killed in the 20th Century as Bolshevism (Russia) spread her errors throughout the world. [Does Weinandy agree w/Francis/VC2 that the communists (Bernie Sanders w/his Vatican welcome)and Globalists ARE the real Catholics)]


What about the 60 million babies killed in the U.S.?

Being anti-abortion is anti Jewish 'freedom of religion'

Ditch opus devil deathsite and find a Catholic priest not in communion w/VC2 liars.
