| Pope Francis and his idiotic leftist theories - Pope Francis Just Compared the Great Commission to Jihad

|Yes, you read that right. The leader of the Roman Catholic Church,
the Pontiff who speaks for 1 billion Christians, said that Jesus's call
to "make disciples of all nations" is equivalent to the Islamic conquest
of nations following the death of Mohammed.
This conquest is a primary
motivation for radical Islamic terrorism today, and the biggest
Christian leader said "the same idea of conquest" is in the Great
Commission in the Gospel of Matthew.
In an interview on Tuesday with the French magazine La Croix, Francis minimized the difference between Islam and Christianity, arguing that the religions share a concept of subjugation.
I don't think that there is a fear of Islam as such but of ISIS and its
war of conquest, which is partly drawn from Islam. It is true that the
idea of conquest is inherent in the soul of Islam. However, it is also
possible to interpret the objective in Matthew's Gospel, where Jesus
sends his disciples to all nations, in terms of the same idea of
This connection is so asinine, it can
only be explained as a deduction from the liberal tenet that all
religions are morally equivalent. Here is the passage, in Matthew 28,
where Jesus issues the "Great Commission" to his followers (New
16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the
mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they
worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said,
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore
go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the
Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to
obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always,
to the very end of the age.”
Jesus does say "all
authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me," but in context
this does not mean every nation should surrender to his political
leadership. He explicitly asks his disciples to do something different
-- to "make disciples" of all nations, not to make colonies of them.
