Pope Francis Is to the Vatican, What Obama Is to the U.S. :: by Geri Ungurean

I remember in 2008, when Obama was declared the president of the United States. I could hardly breathe. I sat in silence for hours; not wanting to believe it was true.

I had warned so many people about him. Having done extensive research on the man, with the little that we did know of his past, I was determined to tell as many people as I could that this man was dangerous for our country.

We knew of his ultra liberal voting record as a U.S. Senator. He was deemed left of Ted Kennedy! We knew that he had close ties with Planned Parenthood. We also knew of his association with people like Bill Ayers and his Marxist pastor, Jeremiah Wright, who spewed his hateful Black Liberation Theology to his congregation every Sunday. Those of us who have discernment knew that Barack Hussein Obama was going to be a curse on our country.

I kept turning it over in my mind — how could this happen? What was wrong with the people? And since that fateful night in November of 2008, he has turned this country into something that is foreign to us. It’s not the America we knew as we grew up. He said that he would fundamentally transform the U.S. and that is exactly what he has done.


When Pope Benedict suddenly stepped down from the papacy, I had a feeling that something was amiss at the Vatican. Actually, things are always amiss at the Vatican, but this was different. It was like things were out of control; or perhaps someone else was in control. It took less than two days for the conclave to usher in their new pope.

We found out that Pope Francis was the first Jesuit to ever be a pope — the very first! As I researched this more, I realized that the Jesuits were always considered the military arm of the Vatican. Even Catholic priests were shocked when Francis was placed in his position. I began to do more research on the Jesuits. What I was seeing was more than a bit alarming. Assassinations, political plots, helping Hitler to power in Germany; the list goes on and it reads like a terrifying novel. I had no idea that the Jesuits were like this. They sounded more like the mafia than part of the Vatican.


I read an article today from the Washington Post (not usually my choice for news) but I found the piece to be intriguing. Here is an excerpt:

VATICAN CITY — On a sunny morning earlier this year, a camera crew entered a well-appointed apartment just outside the 9th-century gates of Vatican City. Pristinely dressed in the black robes and scarlet sash of the princes of the Roman Catholic Church, Wisconsin-born Cardinal Raymond Burke sat in his elaborately upholstered armchair and appeared to issue a warning to Pope Francis.

A staunch conservative and Vatican bureaucrat, Burke had been demoted by the pope a few months earlier, but it did not take the fight out of him. Francis had been backing a more inclusive era, giving space to progressive voices on divorced Catholics as well as gays and lesbians. In front of the camera, Burke said he would “resist” liberal changes — and seemed to caution Francis about the limits of his authority. “One must be very attentive regarding the power of the pope,” Burke told the French news crew. [1]

Didn’t the college of Cardinals which made up the papal conclave do their research on this man before voting? If they had, they would have found that the former Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina, had a past that was certainly not typical of a leader in the Catholic church.

It seems feasible that the Jesuit community were instrumental in placing their man on the papal throne.
Cardinal Raymond Burke went on in the Post article:

Papal power, Burke warned, “is not absolute.” He added, “The pope does not have the power to change teaching [or] doctrine.”
Burke’s words belied a growing sense of alarm among strict conservatives, exposing what is fast emerging as a culture war over Francis’s papacy and the powerful hierarchy that governs the Roman Catholic Church. [1]

In a prior article about Pope Francis, I wrote:

“I have done much research on this pope. I found that when he was Archbishop Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, he had close friends who were Wiccans and pagans. He even allowed some Unitarian Universalist acquaintances to hold services in his Cathedral in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I read that Wiccans, pagans and New Agers in general, were intrigued by the man, and many truly loved him.”

The name of that article was “Pope Francis – False Prophet.” [2]

Pope Francis prepares for his trip to Washington, D.C. to meet with Obama and then to address a joint session of Congress. This has never happened in the history of our country. Francis then goes to NY to be the keynote speaker for the Climate Change conference at the U.N. It seems that Pope Francis fashions himself a politician now. Well, that would make sense since we never hear anything from him about the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

This Pope’s liberal leanings are not just causing dissension within the Vatican. It seems that Catholic priests worldwide are either speaking against his unconventional teachings, or his allies are using this to push the envelope and see just how far they can go with issues such as same-sex marriage and abortion.

The Post article continues:

“Yet as he upends church convention, Francis also is grappling with a conservative backlash to the liberal momentum building inside the church. In more than a dozen interviews, including with seven senior church officials, insiders say the change has left the hierarchy more polarized over the direction of the church than at any point since the great papal reformers of the 1960s.

The conservative rebellion is taking on many guises — in public comments, yes, but also in the rising popularity of conservative Catholic Web sites promoting Francis dissenters; books and promotional materials backed by conservative clerics seeking to counter the liberal trend; and leaks to the news media, aimed at Vatican reformers.

In his recent comments, Burke was also merely stating fact. Despite the vast powers of the pope, church doctrine serves as a kind of constitution. And for liberal reformers, the bruising theological pushback by conservatives is complicating efforts to translate the pope’s transformative style into tangible changes.

“At least we aren’t poisoning each other’s chalices anymore,” said the Rev. Timothy Radcliffe, a liberal British priest and Francis ally appointed to an influential Vatican post in May. Radcliffe said he welcomed open debate, even critical dissent within the church. But he professed himself as being “afraid” of “some of what we’re seeing”

Rather than stake out clear stances, the pope is more subtly, often implicitly, backing liberal church leaders who are pressing for radical change, while dramatically opening the parameters of the debate over how far reforms can go. For instance, during the opening of a meeting of senior bishops last year, Francis told those gathered, “Let no one say, ‘This you cannot say.’ ” [1]

In my article, “Pope Francis – False Prophet,” I made the case that this man could very well be the one spoken of in the Word of God as the False Prophet.

Brethren, I feel strongly that everything happening with this Pope is Satanically influenced.

“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed” (Revelation 13:11-12).

The Word says that he had two horns like a lamb. This brings to mind gentleness. Have you noticed that Pope Francis has a gentle demeanor? He looks like someone that you would invite into your home. But the Word also says he speaks as a dragon. This means that he speaks as a serpent – he lies and deceives and confuses.

I believe that these new events just confirm what many are thinking. Some are even asking if this man could be the Antichrist. We are seeing God’s prophetic Word playing out before our eyes.

Share this with unbelieving friends and families. Let them see for themselves that God’s Word is in the news every day! Then share the Gospel with them. Show them that they can know that they will be in heaven when they die. Time is so short.
