I read the interview the Pope gave. It is quite long and frankly is geared towards Catholics who understand the bureaucracy of the Church.
But IMHO, the MSM took him totally out of context (he basically said the most important thing is to show love, rather than get sidetracked) and I thought, ha, they are thrilled, they find a few words, haul them out of context, and think, they have an “enlightened” pope! Maybe he’ll even approve of gay marriage and divorce eventually!
It’s so sad, they don’t realize that’s how Christians are SUPPOSED to think, and many do. We are supposed to stand firm on doctrine, but our language and acts must be the Love of God.
I read a book about an atheist who passed for a Christian in a church for a year. She kept waiting for all the evil hate to come out, and it never did. She was convinced all the love talk was a dodge, but they just kept loving her. Libs believe their own propaganda. They think we hide at potlucks talking about taking over the world and hanging gays... sheesh.
“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God, and everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.... God is love.”
And Jesus in his love said, go and sin no more!
This idea that we can win people over by not mentioning our sins, is pretty ridiculous. Jesus never did that
