POPE CONSIDERS ALLOWING MARRIED PRIESTS
Pope Francis said he is open to allowing married priests in the Catholic Church to remedy a shortage of priests.
Pope Francis said during an interview with a German newspaper, Die Zeit, that a shortage of priests is an “enormous problem” for the church, reported CNN.
The Pope said he would only consider allowing men who are already married into the priesthood, but single men who are already priests would not be allowed to marry.
“We need to consider if ‘viri probati’ could be a possibility,” said Pope Francis.
Viri probati means “tested men,” married men of outstanding faith and virtue.
Let’s stop right here.
What man of “outstanding faith and virtue” would even consider becoming a member of the pedophile organization (incognito) of the Catholic Church? Ignorant ones, yes, but those with true faith and virtue, NO!
A shortage of priests is an “enormous problem,” says the Pope! What about your pedophile priests being a problem? How about that GIGANTIC, ENORMOUS, REALLY BIG, HUMONGOUS PROBLEM? Don’t want to talk about that, eh?
It perplexes me totally that the Pope would consider allowing married priests in the “church” due to a “shortage of priests,” yet he doesn’t consider allowing it because such a tremendous number of Catholic priests are perverted pedophiles, because they can’t marry, which the Bible tells us is the sign of an apostate church:
“Now the Spirit speaks expressly that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their conscience seared with a hot iron, forbidding to marry and commanding to abstain from meats, which God has created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth” 1 Timothy 4:1-3 (emphasis added).
Even the Catholic Bible says the same thing, but they still don’t acknowledge the truth! (King James Version 1 Timothy 4:1-3; Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition 1 Timothy 4:1-3)
One would think that with all of the pedophile priests that have been exposed in this half century (God only knows how long they have been abusing children!), that the Pope would first realize that they are the apostate church, which gave “heed to seducing spirits” in the “latter days” and finally break away from the tenets that have helped seduced them, namely “forbidding to marry;” and secondly understand that because they aren’t allowed to marry, they have seduced one another and, worst of all, little boys, sometimes girls, and for that reason, not because they don’t have enough priests (What has happened? Are they all in jail now for pedophilia?), they should allow priests to marry!
The Pope is so deceived that he doesn’t even acknowledge they need to allow the priests to marry, not only because the Bible says they shouldn’t forbid marriage, but also to prevent homosexuality, pedophilia and child molestation!
“I charge you, therefore, before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick (living) and the dead at His appearing and His Kingdom, preach the Word; be instant in season, out of season (always ready); reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine; for the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but after their own lusts they shall heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears (hearing what they want to hear) and they shall turn away their ears from the truth and shall be turned unto fables” 2 Timothy 4:1-4 (emphasis added).
Jesus said a sign of His return would be “as it was in the days of Lot,” Sodom and Gomorrah!
“Likewise as it was in the days of Lot…but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom (when the saints are caught up – 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18), it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all (the great tribulation begins – Revelation 6). Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man (Jesus) is revealed” Luke 17:28-30.
Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away.

During the persecutions of Protestants by the Roman Catholics in the valleys of Piedmont, during the Seventeenth Century, Jacob Birone, a schoolmaster of Rorata, for refusing to change his religion, was stripped naked and the nails of his toes and fingers were torn off with red hot pincers, and holes were bored through his hands with the point of a dagger. A cord was tied around his waist and he was led through the streets with a soldier on each side of him. At every turn, the soldier on his right cut a gash in his flesh, and the soldier on his left struck him with a bludgeon, both saying, “Will you go to Mass? Will you go to Mass?” He still replied in the negative to these interrogatories, and being at length taken to the bridge, they cut off his head on the balustrades and threw both that and his body into the river.

The Catholic Church has never issued an apology for the crimes committed during the Inquisition and the brutal torture and murders of Protestant Christians, who denounced papal authority, denied Purgatory, the selling of indulgences in sin, the worship of idols, and prayers to the saints and the Virgin Mary. Neither has any reparation been made to the heirs of the saints who suffered such vile persecutions from the Catholic Church. Protestants were brutally murdered by Catholics by way of burning them alive at the stake, flaying alive, hangings, cutting them to pieces, burying them alive, drowning, torturing them on the rack, whereby bones were broken and bodies ripped apart, beheading them, etc… The property and assets were seized of those heinously murdered by the Catholic Church from about the Twelfth Century through around the 1820s, not that long ago. The Vatican sits atop the blood of the saints. Revelation 18 describes her brutal end for heresies and having committed such abominable crimes.
“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins and that you receive not of her plagues” Revelation 18:4.
God is calling His sincere believers to come out of the Catholic abomination, before it’s too late!
