what all the “critics” miss is that Francis said “...and the blood of Christ has redeemed us all!
He did not say the blood of Christ ‘saved’ us all.
It is sad that they don’t understand the difference.
I can’t understand either what’s this pretension held by many Catholics that they can judge the Pope at every instance. Beats me!
Even a small amount of bible study will show you there is no difference...Any one to get redeemed will be saved first...
But the short answer to the question is easy: No. Francis was only affirming the doctrine that Christ redeemed the whole world. Whether people accept that belief is another matter.
So the Catholic doctrine is wrong...Jesus did NOT redeem the whole world...Jesus 'showed up' to redeem the whole word but it hasn't happened...Some in the world will ultimately be redeemed...It's just more ignorance of scripture...
What's comical is that there are so many defending (by making excuses for) your pope, but we don't get a peep out of your pope...
It would further the discussion if you, or anyone else, would define and differentiate redemption and salvation using Scipture.
