Breitbart: “Two days after the horrendous jihadist attacks in Paris, Pope Francis preached about the “end times,” encouraging his hearers to be vigilant and ready at any moment to meet God face to face.
In his Angelus message Sunday, the Pope invited the ten thousand pilgrims gathered in Saint Peter’s Square to think about their death, the day they will meet God and give an accounting for their life.
The Pope also explicitly addressed the Paris carnage, expressing his “deep sorrow for the terrorist attacks that bloodied France late on Friday, causing many casualties.” Along with offering his condolences to the victims and their families, Francis condemned the massacre as an “unspeakable affront to human dignity.”
Opinion: Interesting that the Pope is teaching on the end times: “Our final goal is the meeting with the resurrected Lord. The most important thing is not knowing when the end will come, but being ready for it when it does,” he said.
The head of the salvation by works-based Church neglected to say what being ready means: “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast” Ephesians 2:9-10.
Or this : When a person accepts the free gift of salvation offered to all through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, there is “no condemnation“ (Romans 8:1-2), and the only accounting will be to determine if our lives on earth have earned one of 5 crowns (2 Corinthians 5:9):
And he didn’t mention this: ” The twenty-four elders (Church in heaven) fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying:
“You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.” Revelation 4:10-11
Now that’s a message the Church needs to hear.
