The Pope of Rome and Noah’s Flood

The Pope of Rome and Noahs Flood, PDF format

This is just a very brief article so I am not addressing the myth of “climate change”.  Myth it most certainly is.  But it’s not the subject for now, and it is a huge one.  For now we will be looking at what the Jesuit pope, Francis I, said about the great Flood of Noah’s day, a possible second great Flood still to come.  In a new book, he said the world could again face a catastrophe like the great Flood if human beings fail to address “climate change”.  “A great flood, perhaps due to a rise in temperature and the melting of glaciers: that is what will happen if we continue on the same path.”[1]

He also said that “experts” regarded the Flood as a myth.  He stressed that he did not wish to be misquoted as saying that the Bible is a myth – but suggested that myth was a form of knowledge.  “The flood is a historical account, archaeologists say, because they found evidence of a flood in their excavations.”

And there are ignorant “Protestants”, undeserving of the name, who actually believe the pope of Rome is a Christian, and that he presides over a Christian church!  These latest remarks just again reveal, with such clarity, that he is a liar and deceiver, does not believe the Bible, and will turn anything to his account when it comes to his favourite theme, summed up as follows: the world’s climate is changing because Evil Man is heating everything up, and we’re all doomed unless we listen to the radical environmentalists, and of course to him, the pope of Rome.

Francis’ first shocking heresy was that there could be another great Flood.  This directly contradicts the Bible, and shows he does not believe the Bible.  He believes in his own importance and his own “wisdom”, but not the Bible.  For the Lord said to Noah after the Flood was over: “And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth” (Gen. 9:11).  Who are we to believe, the Lord God or the pope of Rome?  The Lord categorically said there would never again be a worldwide Flood to destroy all flesh!  Francis says there could be.  Those who believe Francis call God a liar.

He did not even attempt to hide his heresy.  He did not care that what he said directly contradicted the Bible.  But this, remember, is a man who actually presumed to change the wording of what’s called the Lord’s Prayer, and whose “church” actually dropped one of the ten commandments and split another in two so as to get ten again.  So we really should not be surprised.

His second shocking heresy was that if God did send another great Flood, it would be because of “climate change”.  Not because of men’s sins, be it noted, but because of “climate change”.  The Bible says clearly, “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.  And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.  And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth” (Gen. 6:5-7).  The great Flood was divine judgment upon mankind for their sins.  But the pope of Rome said that if there is another great Flood it will be because men fail to address “climate change”.

In Francis’ mind “climate change” is the great sin of our times.  His speeches, encyclicals, off-the-cuff remarks – all make it as plain as day that for him this is the real “sin” of the present age.  I have written in detail about this in other articles.[2]

Now for his third heresy.  He said, “The flood is a historical account, archaeologists say, because they found evidence of a flood in their excavations.”  Note that he did not say, “The flood is a historical account because the Bible says so”; but, “The flood is a historical account, archaeologists say”.  The clear implication being that if archaeologists did not say it was a historical account, he would not believe it either.  Again – this man does not believe the Bible is God’s perfect and infallible Word.

But there’s more to this.  Most secular archaeologists concede that the evidence of archaeology reveals there have been very great floods in certain parts of the world in ancient times.  They can’t deny it, because the evidence is really overwhelming.  But what they won’t concede is that all this evidence points to a single worldwide Flood, one in which the entire earth was covered with water at one time.  Yet doubtless these are the archaeologists Francis was referring to, not to those who believe the Bible and produce the evidence for a worldwide Flood.

This is made more certain by the fact that he said “experts” regarded the flood as a myth.  Now if on the one hand he says archaeologists say the flood was historical, and yet on the other hand he says the “experts” say the flood is a myth, the only way to reconcile these two apparently contradictory statements is to accept that Francis believes there were great floods in various places, and that perhaps one of them could be termed Noah’s Flood, but that it did not cover the whole earth.

And to clinch it, he stressed that although he did not wish to be misquoted as saying the Bible is a myth, he suggested that myth was a form of knowledge.  Now if you are puzzled by that, dear reader, and are left scratching your head and wondering exactly what Francis was saying, console yourself with the knowledge that you are not alone in your perplexity: only a Jesuit like Francis could make such a statement and actually believe it makes sense.  This is an example of true Jesuitism at work: walking a tightrope, maintaining a very careful balancing act, thereby attempting to placate both sides.  On the one hand, “he did not wish to be misquoted as saying the Bible is a myth”.  This sounds like he was not saying it is a myth… right?  Well, maybe.  It could be read that way.  Many would read it that way.  But then he suggested that “myth was a form of knowledge”.  This sounds like he was saying it is a myth, but that knowledge is still imparted by this myth… right?  By now the average reader is left shaking his head in confusion, not quite sure what the Roman pope was saying.

And that’s the whole point, you see.  This is how the Jesuits operate.  It’s how they have always operated.  You can’t pin them down.  A Jesuit will say one thing out of one side of his mouth, and another out of the other side.  Remember that according to the Jesuit teaching, he “becomes all things to all men.”  Not in the biblical meaning of this, but in the sense that he will say whatever any man wants him to say, or whatever is most advantageous to him and to the Jesuit Order if he says it – but in such a way that it is capable of another meaning to someone else.  There will be plenty of people who will take Francis’ words to mean that he believes the Bible.  But there will be plenty of others who will take his words to mean that for him, the Bible is a myth, albeit one that contains knowledge.

Francis has done this over and over again during his pontificate.  Is he 100% opposed to homosexuality, or is he not?  People are confused, with some believing he is against it and others just as certain he is for it.  Is he a Communist, or does he reject Communism?  Some dogmatically assert he hates it, others just as dogmatically insist he loves it and is devoted to it.  Is he an earth-worshipping pantheist, or does he hold to traditional Roman Catholic doctrine?  Francis-followers believe he is an orthodox Roman Catholic in doctrine, others accuse him of outright heresy for rejecting ages-old Roman Catholic doctrine.  Throughout the years of his pontificate he has continued to befuddle and confuse both Roman Catholics and non-Roman Catholic alike.  And all because they do not understand Jesuitism and how the Jesuits operate.

For those who do understand Jesuitism, it is evident that Francis is a decided liberal and “progressive” when it comes to certain Roman Catholic doctrines, notably homosexuality; that he most certainly is a Communist and hates Capitalism; and that he is prepared to accept aspects of all kinds of heathenish religions if it will advance his own power and that of the Jesuit Order over the earth.  He speaks with a Jesuit’s forked tongue.  He manages to convince millions he believes a certain thing, and to convince millions of others that he believes the very opposite – with the very same words he uses.  He is in fact the master of George Orwell’s “doublethink”, which Orwell defined as “to know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it.”

Truly Rome, and in particular the Jesuit Order, is as the harlot in the book of Proverbs: “her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them” (Prov. 5:6).  “She transforms herself into several shapes, to accommodate herself to the humours of her lovers, and hath a thousand arts and deceits to insnare them, and hold them fast.” (Matthew Poole).

That anyone can call this man a Christian, or the religious system he presides over a Christian church, reveals the depths of the blindness of their hearts.  That there are professedly Evangelical Protestants who make the absurd, unbiblical and frankly deceptive claim that “some Roman Catholics are Christians, and even some popes have been Christians”, is so grotesque, that to be consistent they must then also make the claim that “some Hindus and Hindu gurus are Christians”, or “some Satanists are Christians”.  The one is as impossible as the other.  Roman Catholicism is not Christianity.  It is a heathen religion attempting to pass itself off as Christianity.  The pope of Rome is not a Christian.  He is the priest-king of ancient Baal worship in its modern form.  He is the devil’s tool, a liar and a deceiver, a Bible-hating pagan high priest who places his own words above the Word of God.
