POPE CLAIMS CHRIST’S WORK ON THE CROSS WAS A FAILURE

Pope Francis, while speaking at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan, New York claimed Jesus failed on the cross.  Here is what he said, “The cross shows us a different way of measuring success. Ours is to plant the seeds. God sees to the fruits of our labors. And if at times our efforts and works seem to fail and not produce fruit, we need to remember that we are followers of Jesus Christ and his life, humanly speaking, ended in failure, the failure of the cross.” (Full transcript, ABC News).

The Bible says Jesus’s death and resurrection was God’s way of overcoming the “death” problem for us.  God had to become a man in order to pull this off.  We see in Hebrews 2:9, 14-17 KJ: But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.  For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.  Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.  And in John 1:1,14: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God….And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Jesus had the power to lay His life down and to raise it back up again as John 10:17,18 states: Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.   No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

Jesus’s ministry included preaching a message faith, hope, love, repentance, healing the sick and broken hearted,  and raising the dead among other things.  All this so that we may receive God’s gift of eternal life as John 3:16 says:  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

I hate to see Pope Francis downgrading what God has done for us.  In addition, the Pope when speaking to the United Nations, in his opening statement said, “In my own name, and that of the entire Catholic community…,”

Jesus sates in John 5:43: “I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.”
