POPE FRANCIS TO ADDRESS CHRISTIAN GATHERING AT NATIONAL MALL EVENT ‘TOGETHER 2016’ WITH SPECIAL VIDEO MESSAGE
“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for POPE FRANCIS TO ADDRESS CHRISTIAN GATHERING AT NATIONAL MALL EVENT ‘TOGETHER 2016’ WITH SPECIAL VIDEO MESSAGE
“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:14
“THAT HIS HOLINESS WOULD CHOOSE TO SPEAK INTO THIS HISTORIC DAY IS A TESTAMENT TO THE URGENCY AND THE NEED FOR FOLLOWERS OF JESUS TO UNITE IN PRAYER FOR OUR NATION AND OUR WORLD. WE ARE HUMBLED AND HONORED BY HIS INVOLVEMENT AND ARE EAGER TO SHARE HIS MESSAGE WITH THE CROWD THAT GATHERS AT TOGETHER 2016.” – NICK HALL, FOUNDER OF PULSE
“His Holiness”, eh? Listen to what the Bible has to say about the pope and the Catholic Church:
“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” Revelation 17:4-6
