In a dialogue with Catholic high school students in Rome this weekend, Pope Francis responded to a question about how to deal with atheists and people of other faiths by saying that Christians should never proselytize — and any who do are not truly Christians.
“If someone says they are a disciple of Jesus and comes to you with proselytism, they are not a disciple of Jesus.”
“The Church does not grow by proselytism.”
Pretty sure it is supposed to grow that way. Has the Pope ever read the New Testament? One of the risen Christ’s last orders was…
Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Amy Butler managed to get fired for degeneracy and greed, despite being popular on the “Christian” Left.
The sex toy incident was apparently the final straw amid mounting concerns from the Riverside Church Council about Butler’s judgment, as she was seeking a $100,000 raise. She has a $250,000 annual salary and $8,000 monthly housing allowance — on top of other cushy benefits.
Obviously this is not a ‘church.’ A quarter-million salary AND 8k housing allowance? So much for helping the poor…
3. “Tax and budget policies that reduce disparities between rich and poor, strengthen democracy, and provide greater opportunity for everyone within the common good.” Is this what Jesus taught? Did He complain that the people under Roman rule needed a fairer tax code?
These are not churches so much as leftist political agitators.
